At the SPD, Jake, Gabi, and Vivian are stunned as Ivan explains that Vivian had twins. Ivan explains Jake is Stefan’s twin brother. Viv worries about the name ‘Jake’, which isn’t dignified. Jake questions Ivan, who tells of Jake being sickly at birth and was not expected to live. He left with the healthy twin and never knew the second child survived. Gabi points out they need proof. Jake knows where to find it – he’ll call the agency that handled his adoption. He phones and learns Ivan was telling the truth. Viv gasps, “My baby…” Gabi weeps. “You’re not my Stefan.” Jake rubs her back knowing she really loved him. “I’m so sorry.” Gabi so wanted him to be Stefan.

Chastened, Allie agrees to be more understanding. Lucas appears to take Allie to find Sami. Marlena calls Will and wants to come over. She advises that Sami turned up at the wedding.

Eric feels it’s Allie’s decision, and reveals she has a plan as to who would adopt the baby. Allie and Lucas enter, taking in the aftermath of the cake fight. Eric leaves. Sami apologizes to her daughter and wants to start over. Allie loves her but doesn’t want her involved in her child’s life.
