Bo & Hope's House:
Hope goes into labour and there is so much excitement and confusion going on that nobody really knows what they are doing. Alice finally calms everyone down and tells Shawn to bring the truck around to the front. She tells Bo and Shawn to take Hope to the hospital and she orders Doug and Julie to pack a bag for Hope. Doug and Julie race upstairs and get a bunch of stuff from the bedroom and bring them down to a suitcase that is on the couch. The only problem is that they brought stuff that she will never have any use for in the hospital. Alice tells them to calm down because all Hope really needs right now is Bo and Shawn. To keep Doug occupied, Alice sends him over to her place to pick up her donut maker so she can make fresh donuts for everyone.
Bo takes Hope up to Nurse Brenda's desk where they are told that Dr. Bader is on vacation until the next day. Brenda gets Hope into a wheel chair and takes her down to ER to wait until the baby is born. Bo is muttering to himself something about "no matter who the baby belongs to." Shawn overhears him and wants to know what he means. Bo tells him that it is just nervous talk and it seems to satisfy Shawn. They go looking for Hope and find her in a hospital bed. Brenda explains that the labour could take as long as 24 hours. Evidently Father Jansen is on his way to marry them, so if the labour takes a while, they just might get married before the baby arrives after all. Hope asks Bo to call Lexie to be a witness at their wedding and also to stand by to deliver the baby.

Nicholas wants to know what she would do if Victor told her it was all right for them to have an affair. Would she make love to him then? Kate gets ready to leave and Nicholas tells her that he understands, but that he will fight for her. To himself, he says that Victor is not only the problem, but is the solution!
