At TBD, on a call, Kate and Julie discuss Kate purchasing the Martin House Bed and Breakfast. Julie and Doug want to move in with Jennifer, full-time. Kate feels for them, losing Abigail. Besides, she needs a new home. She disconnects and Philip and Chloe walk up. He announces Chloe’s pregnant with his baby and Kate pauses and asks what makes him think the child is his. She asks them to do a paternity test, knowing about Chloe’s history. They argue and Kate takes off. Philip assumes she bought it but once Kate’s outside, she flashes back to talking with Deimos about how well he knows Chloe and calls him, pretending to be an obstetrician looking for Chloe in order to arrange her prenatal care.

He says goodbye to Nicole.
