Kiki meets with Dillon in the park. He won’t give her up without a fight. He was an idiot for trying to step aside. He doesn’t think that she and Morgan can see how much damage they actually do to each other. She insists that she needs to be there for Morgan. Dillon thinks she deserves someone who will make her happy. The blond thinks he’s a great guy and he’ll find someone else. He thinks that she should consider an alternative to Corinthos. Being happy might be nice for a change. He leans in and kisses her as Carly is walking by. She takes off. Dillon apologizes and doesn’t want to pressure her anymore. After he leaves, Carly pops up and asks Kiki what she’s doing to her son.

Later, when Dillon walks in, Morgan corners him and tells him to stay away from Kiki.

She slaps him when he tries to calm her down and repeats her vow. He suggests they re-think how they proceed from now on. Julian thinks they could change some things. She wonders if that includes not letting her stand trial for his crimes. Before he’ll say anything, he pulls out a pregnancy test to get some proof for her claim.
