Wanting their child back, they decided to kidnap him from the adoptive parents and ran off to Center City where they were married.

Jesse was forced to deliver the baby, who was stillborn. Brot showed up with a baby someone had left in his squad car. When Angie came to, she heard the other baby crying and assumed it was hers.
