At the hospital, Kayla tells Lucas she put a rush on the paternity tests for baby Bonnie. Lucas has concerns since Sami changed those DNA tests for Will all those years ago.  He’s trying to be patient but is stressed. He admits that he felt connected to that baby. What’ll he do if she’s his? Kayla tries to get him to calm down but Lucas ruminates that it’ll be too much for Chloe.

In the Salem Police Department interrogation room, Bonnie snuggles Bonnie Jr. and kisses her. Sheila grins and asks if the baby is really Lucas’. Chloe strolls in. She’d like to know too. Outside, Eli calls Lani. She ignores his call and he mopes. Sheila takes baby Bonnie outside and greets Eli, who is glad to see her. Sheila is doing well. Eli tells her about getting Lani pregnant and the loss of David. Sheila’s sorry. She lets him hold the baby. He’ll get another chance someday. Eli’s not sure the mother will ever get past it. Sheila admits it’s been rough trying to find a job. Nobody wants to hire an ex-con. Eli offers a recommendation. Meanwhile, Chloe puts Bonnie on notice. She won’t let her hurt Lucas again. Chloe thinks this is a scam. Chloe questions if this kid is even hers. “Isn’t that uterus of yours just a bit too dusty to carry a child?” Bonnie calls it a cheap shot. Once Lucas learns the truth, there will be no room for Chloe. Chloe asks if Bonnie has heard of El Fideo. Of course Bonnie has. Chloe goes on to admit she snuffed him out. Bonnie laughs but Chloe gets in her face and says she made him cry like a stuck pig. She threatens, “He never saw me coming and neither will you.” Chloe stomps out and Sheila returns. She demands money, letting Bonnie know that diapers don’t come cheap. Bonnie hasn’t got any. Sheila snipes that this is a con. “I should have known,” she grumbles before leaving.
