Carlos is talking with Danny and wants to know why Danny has changed his mind and now wants Carlos' help in finding Carmen's killer. Carlos tells Danny that the families doubt his loyalty. He says there was a "sit down" meeting between the families and they believe that Danny needs "supervision" and proposed that the Santos operations should be folded into the Sandoval family. Carlos says that he would be in charge and Danny would be his second in command. Carlos says that it is good business and that Danny's loyalty would no longer be in question if Danny agrees to this arrangement. Carlos gives him 24 hours to decide and leaves. Jesse walks up behind Danny and says that he thinks what Danny is doing is unbelievable. Danny tells Jesse that his working with Carlos is all an act that he needs to go through with to protect Michelle and the baby. Danny says that his mother was murdered and that he can't just walk away from that. Jesse reminds Danny of all the horrible things Carmen did to Michelle, Danny, Pilar, and Vanessa. Jesse says that if Carmen were alive she would hunt Michelle and Danny down like "Hannibal Lector", and that in the end Carmen got what she deserved. Danny grabs Jesse by the arm and told him he has no idea what he was talking about. Jesse adds that this is Michelle worst nightmare and it could cost Danny his marriage if he goes through with his plan. He walks out. Danny calls Michelle's cell phone and Claire answers it. Danny asks where Michelle is and Claire says that she is in the bathroom. Danny assumes that Michelle is at home and says he will meet his wife there and hangs up the phone. Michelle then comes out of the bathroom (dressed, with a hospital gown in her hand) Claire asks Michelle if she feels strong enough to go home as she helps her into a wheelchair. Michelle says yes and they head out.
Michelle is walking into the ER and Claire is waiting for her with a wheelchair. Michelle says that she is so afraid that something is wrong with the baby and is frustrated because she can't reach Danny. Claire takes her into the exam room. Michelle tells Claire that she has had spotting and cramps in the past couple of days. She thanks Claire for being there for her because she couldn't reach Danny, Rick, or Abby. She tries to call Danny but cant reach him. Claire tells her to relax and she will keep trying to reach him. Claire then takes Michelle's phone and walks out of the room.
Rick, Phillip and Harley are in Lizzie's room talking to Lizzie while Beth is in the hallway trying to explain to Jim that Lizzie needs the surgery immediately and that the risk is minimal to the baby if he is delivered early. Jim says he doesn't want to risk his child's life to save "Phillip's child's life" even though he loves Lizzie very much. Beth is appalled that Jim would think that Lizzie means more to her than the baby does because Phillip is her father. Meanwhile, Harley is giving Lizzie a sip of water and tells her that Phillip is working on "getting the army together to fight the dragons". Harley is telling Lizzie the story of "Anne of Green Gables" when the nurse and Beth walk into the room to take Lizzie for more tests. Lizzie is very sick and is having a hard time when she tries to breathe. Beth is talking to Rick and Harley. She says she hopes that Phillip can convince Jim to agree to take the baby early.
Jim is very frustrated and asks Noah and Rick for their medical opinions. Noah tells Jim that Lizzie cannot make it through a first transplant with Edmund as a donor, then a second procedure with the baby as a donor if the first surgery does not work. Jim is asking about the side effects to the baby if labor is induced. Noah says that the risks are minimal to the baby, and that Lizzie needs the surgery within the next 24 hours because her condition is becoming critical. Beth tells Jim that the she feels that the baby will be fine and Rick adds that he also thinks that the baby will be fine. Jim doesn't believe Rick's opinion is unbiased because he is Phillip's best friend and also loves Lizzie. Phillip then walks up to them and asks to speak to Jim alone as "one father to another". Beth begs Phillip to keep his head and try to understand what Jim is going through. She explains that Phillip has been there when his two children were born. Beth explains that this baby is "Jim's first 'biological' child" and that he is overwhelmed with all the information. Beth tries to reason with Phillip that Jim is very worried about his baby, especially since he has never been through this kind of experience before because Susan was adopted. Phillip then tries to explain to Jim that this baby is a lot stronger than Jim is giving the baby credit for. Jim says that they are wasting time, time that could be used for finding another donor for Lizzie. Jim tells Beth that he would never forgive himself if he agreed to deliver the baby early, and something happened to Beth or the baby. Phillip now wants to speak alone to Jim. Once alone, Phillip tells Jim that "the real issue here is the welfare of two children" and not to make it "personal" between he and Jim. Phillip sees Lizzie being wheeled down the hall and talks to her. He is clearly shaken by his daughter's appearance and kisses her before she leaves with the nurse. Phillip then walks away from Jim saying that he is finding Dr. Chase to induce labor. Jim says "the hell you are ... that is my child, not yours". Phillip angrily says, "Jim, you don't want to use that excuse with me". They start to argue. They start screaming at each other. Phillip screams at Jim asking if Jim wants Lizzie to die. Jim says "don't lay that guilt crap on me", and that Phillip needs to find another donor or wait for the baby to be born naturally to take the cord blood because he "refuses to risk his child's life". Phillip responds by screaming that, "the child is not yours, it's mine. The baby that Beth is carrying is mine". Jim is clearly shocked by what Phillip has just said and doesn't believe him.
At the Bauer's:
Claire is helping Michelle into the Bauer kitchen saying that Michelle should rest in her apartment, when Danny walks in saying that Michelle is where she needs to be with her husband. Claire tells Danny that she was just trying to help Michelle. Danny sarcastically tells Claire that he knows exactly what she was trying to do and asks her to leave. Michelle thanks Claire for her help and Claire leaves. Michelle tells Danny that she had tried to reach him for hours. Danny says he was trying to find out about his mother's case by tracking down David. Michelle begins to tell Danny that she was at the hospital and that she lost the baby. She is sobbing in Danny's arms, and Danny is just repeating, "No ... no ... no" over and over while he is holding her.
