When Kevin and Laura arrive at the hospital, Kiki congratulates them on their marriage and putters off. Laura realizes she doesn’t know what her name is now. She’s not Laura Spencer anymore, she wants to be Laura Collins. That sounds good to him. He heads off to work and she runs into Stella, who tells her about her lousy landlord and his relationship with Lomax. Laura runs off to tell Kevin. He says he will support her but it’s time for their honeymoon. She can’t leave town now. Stella returns and asks again for Laura’s help. Kevin suggests they stop by the PCPD on the way to the airport. Over at the nurses’ station, Maxie orders Amy to run a DNA test for Nathan. Amy protests and says the cop isn’t into ‘backdoor shenanigans’. Maxie orders her to do as she’s told. Amy agrees.
Liesl happily joins Nathan at Kelly’s. She gives him his Christmas gift. It’s a cuckoo clock she bought when she was pregnant with him. She gets choked up and tells him they have a chance to make things right. He asks what she’s not been telling him about his father. Obrecht asks him to let it go. The cop keeps pressuring her, but she tells him to concentrate on the future. After she leaves, Maxie arrives. He shows her the clock. She’s not impressed.
