Nick goes to Fallon and asks her why she doesn’t want to see her baby. She ends up telling him it’s because of Blake not being her father, she asks him not to tell anyone she told him.
Nick goes to see Blake and tells him the news about the baby, I guess that it’s okay for him to tell the grandparent, but not the parents. Blake wants to go to see Fallon, but Nick tells him that she doesn’t want to see him, and that she is suffering from an identity crisis, because she doesn’t know who her father is. He tells Blake that the only way for him to prove to Fallon that he is her father is if he takes a blood test. Blake asks him if she told him who the other man is, Nick tells him that Fallon didn’t tell him. Blake goes to find the one person who can tell him, but Alexis isn’t home, he finds the portrait still lying on the floor.

She signs the consent form and ask when the surgery will be. He tells her it will be in the morning. He takes her to go see the baby, telling her that if he were to die without her seeing him she would never make it. Fallon looks at her baby and everything changes for her in that moment.
Claudia goes into Jeff’s office and unlocks the box in the drawer and is taking pictures of some papers when he walks in on her. He tells her that his meeting was called off, and asks her why. She tells him that his uncle wanted the information. She admits that she took him to her apartment to get the key, but everything after that was different. She tells him she was doing it because Cecil has information about where Lindsay and Matthew are.
At the hospital Nick takes Blake and Krystle to the baby and tells them that they are going to perform surgery to close the hole in his heart, he tells them that it is dangerous since he’s so young.
At ColbyCo. Jeff tells Cecil to tell Claudia where Lindsay is or he will go to Blake. Cecil tell shim that his hands are clean, he tells him that it was all Claudia’s idea. Jeff grabs him and demands that he tell him. Cecil finally tells him that Lindsay and Matthew disappeared and after an accident in Peru are believed to be dead. Jeff says that he only did it so he could get her to spy for him. They are interrupted by an emergency call for Jeff about the surgery. He runs out of the office.
At the hospital he meet up with Krystle and Blake who tells him that it’s been an hour and they haven’t heard anything. Not long after that the doctor comes out to talk to them. Jeff tells Fallon that the baby is alive, but it will be awhile before he can go home. Fallon tells Jeff that she won’t give the baby up. Jeff gets upset with her, since one minute she doesn't want the baby and now she does. Nick come in and asks to talk to Jeff. In the hall Jeff tells Nick just to stay out of it. Nick ties to tell him something but Jeff hits him, Nick grabs him and holds him to the wall telling him that he gets the one, but that he needs to think about his son now and not himself.
Blake finds Alexis and tells her that he swore to kill her if she ever told that lie again, Alexis swears to him that she wasn’t the one, that it was Sammy Joe. Then she goes on about how she is the victim, but he tells her that they need to think about Fallon. Blake tells her to tell him who the other man is, she tries to blow him off, but he grabs her and she finally tells him that it’s Cecil Colby.
Jeff goes to his office and finds Claudia waiting for him. She tells him that she is going to tell Blake and is going to resign from Denver Carrington. He stops her before she can go, and tells her about the accident in Peru. He tells her that they haven't found anything yet. She goes home and calls Cecil, but he isn’t there, she goes in the trunk and finds Matthew’s gun, she picks it up, looking at it.
