JR, Babe, Adam, and Krystal confronted Colby about the pregnancy test instructions. Colby claimed they were Sydney's, but Sydney came in and announced that Colby thought she was pregnant. Winifred took Sydney out of the room and everyone stared at Colby. They all asked if Colby was pregnant. Colby said she did not take the test yet, so they made her go into the bathroom and take it. Krystal made the men leave the room, so Colby could have privacy. Colby came out of the bathroom and looked at the test. She saw one line on it and assumed she was pregnant. Babe tried to console Colby, but she called Babe a hypocrite. Krystal then looked at the test and explained Colby read it wrong because two lines meant she was pregnant, not one line. Colby was ecstatic and rushed out to tell Adam. Adam was still very upset. He thought Sean was responsible and threatened to put him in jail. Colby said it was not Sean and the sex was not her fault. Colby then announced that Josh Madden was the man she had sex with. Colby explained they had sex the night after her party. Colby said she ran away and Josh found her on the streets. Colby claimed he brought her back to his place and took advantage of her vulnerability. Colby claimed he found her in the tunnels because she told him that was where she was hiding. Babe called Colby a liar because she was with Josh that night. JR stated Josh already left when he found Babe naked at ConFusion that night, so he believed Colby. Babe said Colby was trying to cover her ass, but Adam told Babe to shut up. Colby begged Adam to make Josh pay for what he did. Adam promised to take care of it and JR said Josh was a dead man. Then, Krystal, Adam and JR left the room. Babe shut the door and called Colby a lying bitch. Colby told Babe to prove it. Colby also said the only way Babe could save Josh was to admit she was with him that night and had an affair.
Josh was at ConFusion and Amanda brought him a drink. Amanda asked if Josh was out to hurt Babe. She wanted to know if he was hitting on Babe to get revenge on JR. Josh admitted he loved Babe. He said at first it was just lust, but it turned into true love. He also said he hated JR and would do anything to take Babe away from him. Amanda understood why Josh hated JR and could relate to his feelings. Meanwhile, Erin saw Aidan and Di walk into ConFusion together. Erin asked if she could speak with Aidan and Di walked away. Erin apologized for hurting Aidan and ruining their relationship. Aidan accepted the apology. Erin then approached Di and thanked her for allowing them to talk. Di went back to Aidan, but he seemed distracted. Aidan then grabbed a bar patron and busted him with the date rape drug. The cops came in soon after. Everyone thought they were there for the man with the drugs, but they were looking for Josh. When they found Josh, they put him under arrest for statutory rape. Josh was stunned!
Annie had just put Emma to sleep in the penthouse when Ryan came over. He was looking for a book he forgot. Annie offered him hot cocoa and they sat down to talk. Annie reminisced about the good times she had raising Emma. She then wondered how she would tell Emma about T. Ryan told Annie not to worry about that yet. He encouraged her to focus on the positive aspects of her life. Annie asked Ryan how he got over his terrible father. Ryan said he made a lot of mistakes, but eventually realized that DNA was not destiny. He told Annie not to worry about that because T was not Emma's biological father. Annie then explained she decided not to find Emma's biological father. Then, Emma came in because she could not sleep. So, Ryan told Emma a story to help her fall back asleep.
Dixie was about to go to bed when David came to see her. Dixie did not want to talk to him, but David would not leave. David announced that he found Kate.

He also showed her results from a DNA test he took. Dixie demanded to know where she was. David said she would never know. Dixie was distraught and grabbed a knife. She gave it to David and asked him to kill her because this was what he really wanted. David put down the knife. David explained he cared about Dixie, but she rejected him over and over again. He called her an ungrateful tease. David wanted her to suffer like he did. Dixie apologized for the way she treated David. Dixie said if she could go back and change her behavior she would. Dixie also wished she could bring back David's baby. She begged David to tell her about Kate. Finally, David had a change of heart. David said he did not want to live with hate anymore. David showed Dixie a picture he took of Kate the week before. Dixie looked at it and smiled. David announced the little girl was in Pine Valley and he would show Dixie where she was.

Incensed that Dixie dared to defy her wishes, Annie tears into the Miranda Center and manages to send her daughter outside to play before losing her cool. Annie then caustically demands explanations from both Dixie and David on why they picked her and Emma to stalk. They try to assure her that there is an explanation, but to no avail. Ryan shows up and, having overheard the verbal altercation, demands an explanation as well. Krystal feels bad that Annie is upset, but admits that she didn't think there would be a problem with Dixie talking to Emma. Ryan notes that Tad said Dixie would refrain from harassing Annie and Emma any further. As Erin enters the room, David jumps in, saying that neither Tad nor Ryan control what Dixie does. Then, Emma returns to the room and in an attempt to shield her daughter from the harsh words, Annie suggests that Erin take Emma home. When they leave, Dixie finally has a chance to get a word in edgewise, and says that she isn't insane and that she didn't pick Emma out of a crowd for no reason. Annie heatedly claims that Emma is not adopted, and that if Dixie could not get that through her head, she would make sure the police did. Calmly, Dixie asks if Annie would be willing to tell the cops how Greg Madden had been involved in their lives. Dixie reveals that Emma's picture was found in Greg's storage shed, but Annie steadfastly refuses to talk about the alleged link, saying that she is not obligated to reveal anything personal. Dixie briefly relays the story of how Greg took her daughter and gave her to a family, and how her daughter is out there in the world, unaware of how much her birth mother loves her and misses her. Annie rejects the sob story, saying that no amount of convincing would make her give up her baby. She reasserts that if Dixie comes near her or Emma again, she will have Dixie arrested. Ryan urges her to go home and promises that he will be there soon. Once she leaves, Ryan asks why Dixie went against her promise to leave them alone. Dixie insists that all she wanted to do was talk to Emma, to get a feel for whether or not David's claim could be true. David tries to support that claim, but Ryan turns to him and quickly denounces him as scum who is only involved for selfish reasons. He then offers to do everything he can to help Dixie track down her daughter, including finding out everything he can about Emma's background. David then takes a moment to put Ryan in his place by noting that although he does have a score to settle with most of the people in town, it's a ludicrous thought that a little girl who is Kate's age and freely admits that she is not related to her father couldn't be Kate simply because David is evil. Disgusted, he starts to storm out, but Ryan runs after him and refuses to let him leave. He asks David if his claims about Emma are attempts to try to worm his way back into Dixie's life. David admits that he isn't a hero, but also notes that he doesn't have to pretend to be one to make up for all past wrongdoings. Recovering from the assault on his character, Ryan simply says that David will stop hurting the people that Ryan cares about because if he doesn't, they will deal with each other directly.
Back in the room, Krystal asks if she really thinks that the little girl Annie claims is her own could really be Kate. Dixie admits that she is not completely sure, and would feel really bad if she was needlessly terrorizing a woman and her child. Krystal assures her that she has a good reason, and Dixie admits that she just wants to make sure her daughter knows that she didn't mean to give her away. In addition, she notes that if they can confirm that Kate is alive and well, it would provide a great measure of peace for Tad, especially when he didn't ask for the hell he has been living through. Krystal is curious as to why Dixie would be so concerned about Tad's state of mind when he recently tried to get her thrown in jail for murder, but before they can delve into a subject that Dixie is uncomfortable with at best, Adam pokes his head in and unthinkingly reveals that Krystal is pregnant. Krystal tries to breeze by the admission by hurrying her husband out of the room, but she isn't quick enough as Dixie repeats what she thought she heard and Adam confirms that Krystal is indeed three months along.
Fresh off the plane from France, Bianca immediately resumes her role as family peacemaker and pulls her sister and brother off of each other's throats. After a joyous reunion hug, Kendall asks if Bianca is ready to talk some sense into Josh. Bianca opts to give him a hug first, welcoming him to a life of Kane women. Josh shares his cranky mood with his little sister, but Bianca doesn't let it affect her. She notes that Kendall wouldn't go after Josh the way that she was if she didn't care. Kendall is briefly smug, but Josh tells her that blood relation or not, she doesn't have a right to try to run his life. Kendall then asks Bianca to explain to him why hooking up with Babe is dangerous but Bianca tells her that she and Babe are not mortal enemies. Astounded, Kendall then asks if she wants their brother sleeping with Babe. Taken aback, Bianca asks if she missed the divorce between Babe and JR. When she finds out that it didn't happen, she realizes the gravity of Kendall telling JR what she knows. She demands that Kendall promise their brother that she'll keep her mouth shut but initially, she can't do it. Bianca tells Kendall that if she goes through with it, she will lose the brother she just found. Thinking it over, Kendall finally caves and Josh fairly rubs it in her face. She starts to tell him that he can't mouth off just because Bianca has his back, but then backs down from that as well and goes back down to the Fusion offices. Incredulous, Josh turns to her and Bianca quickly promises that she will keep his secret as well. Josh tells her that he wasn't concerned about that - what he wanted to know was how she managed to shut Kendall down. Bianca chalks it all up to family love and says that it wasn't always this easy. She then admits that she's been in the loop about everything else because families communicate. Josh says that even though Bianca didn't call Babe her enemy, he knows that she doesn't agree with his choice. She tells him that she has gotten enough flak over who she loves to turn around and dish it out. She then tells her brother that loving Babe is easy, and that she understands that first hand. The problem is that Babe loves back hard in return and that it sometimes gets in the way of her common sense. Unfortunately, when that happens, sometimes Babe's choices can break other people's hearts. Josh swears that his heart is intact and tries to walk off, but Bianca stops him, saying that he needs to be aware of his own common sense as well. Josh denounces JR as a punk, and says that he would continue to go head to head with him to protect Babe. He asks where Bianca stands if given the choice between JR and his wife, and Bianca admits that she favors Babe, albeit marginally. Josh begs her to convince Babe to leave JR and be with him.
JR happens upon his father browsing through baby pictures of Colby in the living room. They briefly reminisce about what a force she was, even as a toddler and then quickly move on to the present situation. Adam questions whether Josh is really guilty, as his daughter claims, and JR reminds his father that Josh once hooked up with Dani, attempting to show a pattern. Though Adam duly notes that fact, he makes it known that Colby could be lying to protect the person she was really with. JR asks if Adam's skepticism was brought about by either of their wives, but Adam admits that he doubted all on his own. As a grown man who appreciates the beauty of grown women, he can't imagine the appeal that a teenager could hold. JR plainly tells him that it has nothing to do with Colby and everything to do with the Chandlers as a family paying for all of the pains Josh has suffered. He also notes that if true, Colby is paying for things that she had no hand in. Adam then questions JR's feeling about his sister's claim that Josh called her Babe. JR divulges that although Colby took the fall, the person Josh really wants is his wife. Adam tells him that the real question is whether or not Josh will actually get the girl. JR emphatically notes that Josh wouldn't get the chance because every time he tried to make a move, Babe shut him down. Adam suggests that JR shut Josh down by forbidding Babe to see him, but JR as much as laughs it off, noting that Adam should try that with his own Carey wife and report back the results. Conceding the point, Adam then wonders aloud if the convenience of Josh being guilty wasn't becoming more important than the truth. JR looks for clarity, and Adam tells him that life would be much easier knowing that Josh couldn't seduce Babe from behind bars. JR tells his father that listening to his doubts is like having a devil on his shoulder, urging him to do whatever it would take to get another innocent man thrown into jail. Knowing that they have no proof that Josh touched Colby, he asks Adam what their next move should be. Adam tells him that proof isn't their problem because that burden lies on the police. What they need to do is sit back, keep their suspicions to themselves and let Josh pay for the pain that they know he has caused their family.
Babe shows up at PVH, finds Sean and tells him in front of a small group of gawking boys that she needs him. He initially tries to act like a stud, intimating that she had shown up to hook up with him. Babe makes it clear that all she wants to do is find out what he knows about who Colby slept with the night of her Sweet Sixteen party. Sean gives her a lot of cocky answers, but in the end, tells her that he doesn't have the answers that she needs. Babe pleads with him to give her something to work with but, after spotting Colby's arrival nearby, Sean tells her that although he knows 20 guys that would admit to sleeping with Colby, none of them would be telling the truth. He then sees Sydney approach Colby and uses her, and a date they have planned, as a means to escape. Suddenly left alone with her sister-in-law, Colby bitingly observes that Babe running her mouth in a high school is like free advertisements for all of their personal business. She then asks if Babe is angry because she is back, and if that is why she keeps coming after her. Babe tries to take the focus off of herself by saying that Colby's deliberate plan to ruin an innocent man's life makes her a nasty bitch. Colby shoots back that Babe is a nasty slut, because the only way she can prove that Josh didn't take advantage of Colby is by admitting that she was having sex with him. Colby dares Babe to lie to her like she lied to her husband, and the only response that Babe can come up with is that she can't believe what could have happened to Colby while on the run to make her so hateful. Colby reminds her of when she and Jamie hid out with her and Liza when they were on the run with Little A, and how both she and Krystal have the Chandler men wrapped around their fingers. Colby admits that she wants the Carey women out of the house, and that whichever comes to light first - Babe's truth or Colby's version - Babe's lover will be out of the picture, and she will win.
At the penthouse, Erin tries to convince a packing Annie that she is sorry for what happened at the center, and that surely something can be worked out. Annie is unmoved, noting that no one will take her daughter away. She asks for the money that Erin has on her, and tells her that she and Jamal need to make her disappear. Erin hesitates because Jamal is away and she would need a little bit of time to get a plan in place for them. Not having time to spare, Annie begs Erin to donate her car to the cause and after a split second, Erin hands over the keys. Annie tells her that she is going to pack the car and asks her to tell Emma that they have a fun trip planned. She starts to head out the door but Ryan arrives at that moment and tells her that she isn't going anywhere.
Babe arrives at the office and instantly dives into work. Unable to control herself, Kendall asks if she came to the office for work, or for a noontime tryst. She continues to mildly taunt Babe, but Babe shoots back that she will not let her brother go to jail for something he didn't do. She knows that the current situation would be the perfect opportunity to get revenge, but Babe begs Kendall to let her deal with things in her own way. Kendall assures her that she wants nothing to do with her, and that her only stake in things is that she make sure Babe doesn't hurt her brother. Babe tells Kendall that she doesn't have to threaten her and that she can cross that worry off of her list, because she cares about Josh and only wants him to be happy. Grossed out, Kendall announces that they aren't bonding and that she'd heard enough. Suddenly struck with an idea, Babe grabs her purse and fairly runs out of the office.
Colby arrives home and gives her big brother a giant hug. She launches into her version of how Babe cornered her at school and loudly announced that Colby was conned into losing her virginity. She adds that she didn't need that kind of harassment in addition to trying to fit in at a new school. Attempting to add insult to injury, she starts to lament how coming home to be a family with her father and brother was turning out to be the biggest mistake of her life. JR hugs her again to get her to stop talking, and then reminds her that he is not their father, and that he knows she is lying. Colby is immediately defensive, insisting that she was telling the truth. JR tells her that he wasn't looking for her excuses - he just wanted to thank her. He tells her that they needed to get Josh away from the family and that she managed to do it without realizing it. Colby falls for his ploy, hugs him and asks what their next move would be if she admitted that Josh didn't touch her. She pulls away when he doesn't answer and turns to see that Babe had just returned home.

At the Miranda Center, Dixie reeled from the news that Krystal was pregnant.

In front of JR in the Chandler living room, Colby challenged Babe to make good on her threat to expose Colby's lies about Josh. JR threw Colby out of the room so he could speak to Babe alone. Babe apologized to JR for having allowed Josh to come between them but insisted Madden didn't belong in jail. Josh showed up at the house; Colby snagged him before he could knock on the door and told Josh to go on in and expose her as a liar, since that would blow JR and Babe's marriage to bits. Josh wasn't biting so Colby pretended that Josh was attacking her and began screaming. JR, Adam and Babe were on the scene immediately. Babe announced that she intended to end this right now. She told Josh to leave. He complied. Babe faced JR, Krystal, Adam and Colby and said she could prove that Josh didn't touch Colby. "How are you gonna prove it?" questioned JR.
