Blake asks if there was anyone else suspicious around the house at the time the baby was taken. Jeff tells him that there was no one else, but the caretaker Grimes, he tells Blake that Grimes mentioned Nick. Blake tells Krystal to take Fallon back to the house, and he and Jeff leave.
At Grimes’ house, he hears the sirens and picks up the baby; he goes out the back way. The Police go into the house, with Blake and Jeff following right behind. Blake picks up a rattle from the crib in the center of the room and shows it to Jeff. They follow the police out the back as they chase after Grimes. A motorcycle cop cuts him off and soon he is surrounded. He tells them all to stay back; Jeff comes forward slowly telling that he wants his son.

He wants Blake’s help, he tells him that at first he didn’t believe it either, he asks about the hospital records. Blake tells him that everything burned in a fire at the hospital and asks if he knew about it. He denies that he knew anything about the fire. He is about to tell Blake about the rattle he found, but changes his mind, and tells him that after meeting him he is glad he isn’t a Carrington. He leaves the office passing Jeff, who walks into the office. He asks Blake who that was; Blake tells him that it was no one.
Alexis walks into Cecil’s room, dressed all in white. The doctor tells Cecil that he is still against this, but Cecil wants to go ahead and tells the priest to get on with the ceremony. When they are exchanging their vows, Cecil seems to lose concentration and is prompted by the priest to continue. After the ceremony Cecil asks for the doctor, nurse and the priest to leave. He asks Alexis if she was afraid that he wouldn’t answer, she tells him that she was only afraid for him. Then he starts to go on about her and Blake, and what they talked about on their honeymoon. He is getting more and more upset, and has another heart attack, Alexis calls the doctor back in, and they try to get his heart back going, but it’s no use.
Final Thoughts: That caretaker was just way too shady, but I’m glad that it’s over, and I’m sure that this will be the last time we hear the name Nick Toscani on the show. I actually felt bad for Alexis when she was the last one to know about the baby being found, and Blake pretty much telling her that they forgot about her. That was a crazy ending, with Cecil, clearly he had his reasons for marrying her just like she did, but we won’t know what they were since he is now dead.
Best Outfit: This looks like the cheapest wedding dress ever.
