Both the Brady and Horton Clans arrive at the church. John, Marlena and Belle also arrive. Rolf receives a call from Bart at the church warning him that Lexie is looking for him. Rolf ends the call abruptly so he can get back to business. However he is startled when Roman and John enter the chapel which causes him to put too many drops of the serum into the baptismal font!

John and Roman discuss their unease at having to look over their shoulders constantly wondering what Stefano's next move will be. Meanwhile Abe informs the officer guarding the church entrance that Lexie is to be arrested if she tries to enter the church.

Abby announces to her mother (and everyone else) that she has invited her dad to join them for the christening. Not everyone is as happy as Abby to have Jack there.

Hope is agitated that the lab has not called with the test results. Caroline overhears Bo and Hope and wonders if all is well. They assure her everything is more than fine.

Rolf slips into one of the confessionals in order to watch the ceremony. He worries that Isaac/Zack will die due to his mistake.

Jack listens in as the Hortons discuss the paternity issue. Jennifer catches him and warns him against gathering info for a story while in church.

Belle and Shawn have an awkward meeting that gets worse when she brings up Jan. Shawn gets a little upset, but is called away by Bo who has overheard some of the conversation.

Bart tries to reason with Lexie, but in the end she manages to get him to tell her where Rolf is. She forces him to help her stop Rolf before it's too late.

A very concerned Rolf watches in fear as Abby goes to dip her fingers in the font. Jack stops her in time.

While talking with Shawn and Hope, Bo receives a call from the lab. They enter a room to take the call in private.

The priest discusses the ceremony with Caroline who tells him that the family wants Isaac/Zack to have the full traditional rites despite the fact that he's already been baptized.
Everyone wonders where Bo and Hope are. Shawn Sr. finds them and they head to the chapel to begin the ceremony. Just before they begin, Hope announces that Isaac/Zack's biological father is in the room with them ...and it is none other than Bo!! Everyone is very thrilled and relieved to finally know the truth.

Bart enters the church disguised as a bum and creates a diversion in order for Lexie to slip in. She's wearing her old police uniform in order to blend in. Searching for Rolf, she ends up in the confessional next to him. As the ceremony begins, Rolf tries to convince Lexie to allow his plan to unfold (despite the risk to Isaac/Zack). She looks on not knowing what to do. The priest poises the chalice filled with the drugged water over the baby's head...
