Brenda exhibited some disturbing behavior as she cut her image out of photographs while she was alone in her cottage. After cutting the photos, Brenda then burned them in the fireplace. Jax thanked Robin for returning to Port Charles with him and hoped that Robin could help Brenda. Robin agreed when Jax asked her not to mention Jason to Brenda and Jax realized that Robin still loved Jason. Later, Robin arrived at Brenda's cottage. After learning the baby's blood type, AJ jumped to the conclusion that Jason was the father of Carly's baby. Jason visited Carly, who was suffering from postpartum depression and refused Jason's suggestion to try to hold her baby again. Bobbie arrived and tried to talk to Carly, but Carly remained in the throes of her depression. After Bobbie left, Tony entered Carly's room and a vicious argument ensued in which Tony said that Carly was out of his life for good. Later, Carly asked Bobbie to wheel her to the neo-natal intensive care unit so that she could once again try to hold her baby. Carly was unable to bring herself to touch her baby and was overwhelmed with feelings of helplessness. Carly then bumped into AJ as she fled from the room and begged AJ to take her back to her own room. Jason walked in on Carly and AJ and AJ congratulated Jason on being the baby's father. After AJ left, Carly lamented to Jason that she was incapable of mothering her baby. Carly then begged Jason to help her leave town for a while and said that she was going to leave her baby with Jason. Carly swore that she would return after she figured out what to do with her life and Jason agreed not to tell anyone the truth about the baby's paternity in her absence.
