Jack denies and, prior to booking, allows Katie to spend some time with Mike. Meanwhile, Nick muses that Jack is out to get Mike because Nick broke up Jack and Carly's marriage. Carly snaps that he most certainly wasn't the cause of the Snyder's separation! Nick tells Carly he intends to help his cousin. Later, Jack thanks Carly for standing up for him at the church. As Luke comes out to his parents, Lily insists that he's just confused. Holden, however, assures Lily their son is telling the truth.

Lily demands to know how he could have kept this from her.

Dusty promises Jennifer that he'll go easy on Emily, but once Jen is gone, Dusty accuses Hal of letting Emily off the hook. At the hospital, Emily apologizes to Jen and Johnny. Jen confides that when she first got pregnant, all she wanted was to abort Craig's baby and forget about it. But she didn't and now she can't imagine not having him. Emily asks if Jen thinks Emily shouldn't have an abortion. Jen says she hates the idea of Emily being the mother of her niece or nephew, but abortion is Emily's choice.

Holden and Lily discuss Luke's revelation that he's gay and their reactions to this news. Luke walks in just as Lily wonders what she's done wrong. He tells them again that this is not something he's unsure about and that they need to accept this as the truth, saying that if they can't do that, he can't stay with them because it would be living a different lie. After he walks out, Lily realizes her reactions have been less than supportive and worries that he might actually leave home. Holden assures her that's not likely and says they just have to rely on the fact that they've raised Luke to be a good person and trust him to choose the right path for himself in life.

Carly goes to the police station to get Hal's house key so she can pick Parker up from school and take him home to Hal's. She sees Jack and tells him she's also there for "moral support," but when he assumes she means she's there for Mike and Katie, she says she's there for him. Mike, Katie, and Jessica come out to go to the arraignment, but an officer approaches Jack and quietly tells him that the St. Christopher's medallion has gone missing from the evidence room. Nick arrives and finds out about the missing evidence and insists that Jack let Mike go. Jack is forced to admit that he can't hold Mike without the evidence, so he tells Mike he is free to go home. Jack then accuses Nick of having taken the evidence to help his cousin, and later, Carly insists she can't believe that Nick would do such a thing. However, when Carly picks up Parker and takes him to Hal's house, they run into Nick, who wants to talk to Hal before Jack can tell Hal his suspicions about Nick. Parker's kite becomes stuck in a tree, and Nick offers to go climb the tree and get it for him; while he's out doing that, Carly looks through the pockets of his jacket and finds the medallion.

Mike carries Katie over the threshold at their house, and Katie sets up a camera to take pictures of their "wedding reception."

At the hospital, Emily tells Paul she has decided to keep the baby. He tries to talk her out of it, but she says the fact that the pregnancy didn't end when she fell off the cliff proves that this life wasn't meant to end yet. She also tells Paul that this baby represents hope and salvation for her, and that he never has to see either Emily or the baby again. Susan comes in to take Emily down the hall for her abortion, but Emily tells her she's changed her mind. Susan blames Paul, but Paul says he had nothing to do with it and wishes Susan luck in talking some sense into Emily. He leaves, and Emily tells Susan that she really wants to have the baby, asking her if she'll take care of it while Emily is in prison. Susan asks if Emily is sure about this and then agrees to take care of the baby for her if it comes to that.

Meg is packing her things up to move in with Paul when Jennifer arrives at the Lakeview. She tells Jennifer about her moving plans, and Jennifer is not happy to hear about it. Jennifer then lays into Meg about Paul and her trying to convince Emily to have an abortion so that there won't be any obstacles in the path of their romance, but Meg says she hasn't even seen Emily and that by the time Paul saw her, Emily had already made up her mind to have the abortion. Jennifer says she spoke to Emily at the hospital and told her how much Johnny has meant in her life. Meg tells Jennifer that she and Paul have both changed and are trying to make up for the bad things they've done. Jennifer tells Meg that she won't waste any time or energy hating her or Paul, but Meg shouldn't expect to be forgiven, either.

Paul returns to Meg's place at the Lakeview, and she tells him about her encounter with Jennifer. After Meg reassures him that she still thinks they belong together, Paul tells Meg that Emily changed her mind and has decided to keep the baby.
