She throws the test away in the trash but in her haste drops the receipt on the floor. She rushes out to the farm.
Craig arrives back at the room looking for Meg but instead finds the receipt. He quickly finds the pregnancy test and is delighted. He calls Meg, but she doesn't answer. He leaves an excited message telling her to meet him at the Lakeview lounge.

Holden arrives early and Meg leaves to meet Craig.
At the Lakeview Craig happily greets Meg. The waiter brings champagne. Meg tells him that she isn't in the mood to drink. He tells her he knows why and that she needs to cover her tracks better if she is going to keep secrets from him. She denies knowing what secret he is talking about but Craig, seeing Paul and Rosanna arriving, pours a glass of champagne and tells her he is sure she was planning a big surprise for him. Meg realizes that he knows about the pregnancy and wants to go back to the room. She doesn't see Paul and Rosanna in back of her. Craig stands up and announces to the room that his wife is pregnant.

Meg then gets a text message from Paul telling her to meet him in Olde Town.
Meg tells Craig she knows his heart is in the right place but she didn't have time to tell him today because she has a job interview this afternoon and leaves for Olde Town.
Rosanna asks Paul if he is alright. He tells her was rattled by Craig's display. Rosanna said that the news is lovely- but Paul disagrees. She asks him if he thinks Meg will be a wonderful mother. He asks where the wedding planner is and she leaves to go check. Rosanna tells Paul that the planner will be delayed for a while. Paul tells her he doesn't want to hang around watching Craig, so she tells him to go home and she will meet with the planner. They kiss goodbye and he leaves.

Jack said he won't let her pretend she is going to be ok so that he will get back together with Katie, and no matter what happens between Katie and him he will be there as long as she needs him. Later, he asks Carly how she feels. She tells him that she feels better than before she got sick and as far as she is concerned she already got her miracle.

Katie arrives at WOAK and Brad is surprised to see her. He tells her that he heard what happened and asked how she was doing. She tells him that started the annulment processes.

Brad tells her that she shouldn't always feel second best to Carly. He starts to tell her there is something she should know, but Katie starts to cry and asks him to hold her and that she doesn't know what she would do without him.

Rosanna admits she is jealous of what he and Meg had; and she has good reason to. She tells him that in order for their marriage to be successful, they need to be honest. She asks him if he still has feelings for Meg, but he tells her he made a commitment to her, loves her and they are getting married. Rosanna asks him how they can get married when he's not over Meg. Paul tells her that he is over Meg, but Rosanna tells him that he will always have feelings for her. Rosanna now crying tells him that maybe he hates Craig because he has what Paul wants.

Paul gives Will his condolences about the failure of the in vitro, and Will says he doesn't think he and Gwen will make it to Paul and Rosanna's wedding. Meanwhile, Barbara suggests to Gwen that she and Will adopt, because a baby is just what their family needs. Will overhears and takes her outside the bedroom, telling her she can't make this about having a baby in order to heal their family, to replace what they've lost with Jennifer and Johnny. Meanwhile, Paul tells Gwen she's an inspiration because she's given Will the family he's always wanted and needed. As Barbara and Paul leave, Maddie arrives. She tells Will and Gwen how sorry she was to hear about the in vitro, and they tell her that Barbara wants them to adopt. Maddie thinks that's a good idea, saying biology is overrated, considering what happened in her own family with her "psycho sister." Then Maddie tells them that she's decided to go to Wesleyan and that she can transfer right away. She hates the timing, saying she feels like she should stick around to help Gwen, but Gwen says she can help by going to Wesleyan and "kicking some serious academic butt." Maddie tells them that if they could make her feel like she belongs, imagine how they can make a child feel. They hug, and Maddie leaves; Gwen tells Will she thinks they should go ahead and adopt. They call Barbara to tell her. Barbara is shopping in Old Town with Paul and is thrilled to get the call; she tells them she has a good friend who works for an adoption agency, and she'll call her right away.

After Barbara tries to help Will and Gwen address Ann's concerns about their age and lack of college education, Ann asks her if she can give them a minute alone. Barbara says she'll leave to go help Paul with the wedding plans, and she walks out. As Barbara walks out, she gets a call from Rosanna, who is frantically looking for Paul.

Barbara walks up and interrupts, telling Paul that his fiancée is trying to reach him. Paul leaves, and Barbara reminds Meg that Paul is marrying Rosanna tonight; when Meg says she still cares for Paul, Barbara says she needs to leave Paul alone and focus on the baby she's carrying, because the baby will need all her devotion to survive having Craig as a father.

At Carly's house, Carly gives Jack a shoulder and neck massage to try to help him relax, because he's tense about Katie. Jack comments that her hands seem so strong, and Carly says she told him Montana had worked wonders for her. Jack wants to call Dr. Evers and tell him about her "remission or whatever it is" or call another doctor to find out what's changed, because something definitely has. Carly asks him not to, but when she tells him there's something she should have told him but wasn't quite sure how to say, Jack thinks that means that she's afraid this is some type of "final rally" before she dies, and Carly goes along with that.
At the diner, Katie tells Henry that her marriage to Jack is over, saying he slept with Carly and she's having the marriage annulled. Henry points out that Katie slept with Simon while she was still married to Mike, and Katie says Mike was the one she really loved. Henry suggests that perhaps Carly is Jack's Simon, and it's Katie he really loves. Katie decides to call Jack, and she asks if he can meet her at the diner right away; he says of course, and he tells Carly. Before he leaves, Carly tells him that any woman who would let him go has got to be the biggest fool in the world, and she wishes him luck. After Jack leaves, Sage and Parker come home, talking about Halloween and a party they're going to later on. Carly offers to put some makeup on Sage, but she's very distracted, almost putting lip color on Sage's eyes. Parker says he needs to go back to the farm to pick up part of his costume, and Sage asks if he'll bring her a large cookie from Al's on his way home; Carly tells him to go ahead and to please bring her some of Vienna's Swedish soup.
At the diner, Katie tells Jack she has the annulment papers, and the only way she'd change her mind about signing them is if Jack can agree to at least spend the nights with her; he can visit Carly and the kids as much as he needs to, but she thinks he should move out of Carly's and spend his nights with her. Jack says he's afraid that might make Carly take a turn for the worse, and Katie says she understands, but in that case, she wants him to sign the papers. Dejected, Jack does so, and as he stands up to leave, he tries to kiss Katie, but she turns her face away. As he leaves, Katie stops him, then takes off her wedding ring and gives it back to him. After Jack leaves, Parker arrives and comes over to say hello. He notices she's not wearing her wedding ring, and she tells him it just wasn't good timing for Jack and her. Parker says he wants Katie to know that they all really like her, and she says she knows that. He leaves and takes the food back to Carly's; Jack is there, too, and Parker tells him he saw Katie without her ring and that she told him they weren't married anymore. Sage asks if that means Jack and Carly can get married again, and Jack says it means he's not going anywhere anytime soon, but they need to go get ready for their party. After they go upstairs to change, Carly says maybe Sage has a point, and the best gift they could give their family during "this difficult time" would be if they remarried.
Katie goes to WOAK to work; a package comes from her, and when she opens it, she finds her wedding album.
