Nighttime - Scott asks Lucy why she wasn't in bed. She says she couldn't sleep and went down to finish wrapping. She fell asleep and dreamed. He asks if it was about Felicia (Lucy's friend - missing on General Hospital), she says no and told him about the Julie as Godmother dream. He doubts it meant anything, but she thinks it does and will figure it out. They recap the Cooper/Julie saga, and Lucy tries to compare her/DV to Julie/Cooper. The phone rings (see below) and Scott gets ready to leave. Lucy says she'll go with, but unsoaplike, Scott says someone has to stay with the kids. Scott leaves.
At the hospital, Frank waits for Joe to finish a phone call and flashes back to his argument with Courtney. Joe hangs up and Frank told him again that he has something to tell him. They are interrupted by another phone call.
Off the road, Karen tries to help the person in the car she saw go off the road. She opens the car door and realizes that it's Courtney. Her cell phone works and she calls for help, giving Courtney's apparent condition. Courtney comes to and worries about the baby - she hurts all over. Karen told her not to worry, she's going to call Joe. She told Joe the situation and he told Frank. Oddly, Joe told him Karen is all right - Frank has to ask about Courtney. Joe calls Scott to tell him about Karen. Karen and Courtney arrive, Courtney is taken off in pain. Karen told Joe about the accident, Frank went with Courtney. She asks about Neil (who's home with Lark) and if Frank told Joe. Frank assures her he hasn't and told her not to worry about him telling. Courtney is taken for a sonogram. Later, Frank accuses Karen of being happy about the possibility of Courtney losing the baby. She denies it and Scott (who has arrived at the hospital) sends him away.
At the firehouse, Charlene comes down and Lucy told her about the accident. Charlene says she knows "crash" is a hard word for Lucy. Lucy talks about her ex-stepdaughter BJ dying in a school bus accident. Charlene says she misses her too. They discuss Lucy's love of kids and Lucy worries about something happening to her children. Charlene reassures her and told her something positive came from BJ's death - Maxie (Felicia's daughter and BJ's cousin) got her heart in a much-needed transplant. Lucy feels empathy for Courtney and Neil if the baby dies. She worries if Christina gets sick and needs a transplant or something from a birth relative, she wouldn't know who that is. Lucy told Charlene that DV said he knows who the birth mother is - and Lucy needs to know.
At Courtney's bedside, Joe tries to reassure her. He went in the hall with her doctor, who told him the placenta has separated slightly from the uterine wall. Hopefully, a clot will form - otherwise, Courtney might lose the baby. Joe stops by to tell Karen and Scott. Karen feels guilty about taking her eyes off the road to dial her phone. Scott told her it was an accident and not her fault.
Frank stops by Courtney's bed and told her again that he didn't tell Joe. Joe comes in and gives the news about the baby. Courtney is worried and suddenly spasms in pain. It's not her abdomen, it's in back, near her shoulder. Frank worriedly questions Joe, Joe went off to see what tests can be run to see what's wrong and if there is internal bleeding. Frank told Courtney he won't let her die, she told him she and the baby have to make it for Neil's sake.
In DV's hospital room, Rachel is talking to him, telling him he will be around to gloat when they take Christina from Scott and Lucy. He says there's more to it than she knows; Scott is his son. She laughs and says the bullet did more brain damage than they thought. He assures her it's the truth and she asks what that means? All is forgiven? DV says he will always hate him.
At the front desk, Karen and Scott are talking about Courtney. Karen says she could still lose the baby. Taggart approaches and asks to get Karen's statement.
In Courtney's room, Mary, Joe and Frank are trying to comfort her but she's scared and in pain. Joe went to check on some tests and Frank tries to comfort Courtney. She asks what Frank told Neil and he tells her he told him that Joe was taking really good care of her. She says that the baby has to be okay for Neil's sake.
Eve and Joe go over Courtney's test results and Eve told Joe that Courtney is bleeding internally and that she must have surgery to save her life. The surgery will risk the baby's life but without, they will both die.
Back in Courtney's room, Joe is explaining the situation to Courtney. She asks if they can get the bone marrow for Neil now. Joe told her it's too soon; the baby needs to be nearly term for them to do that. She refuses to have the surgery, insisting the bleeding will stop and she and the baby will be fine. Joe tries to make her see the situation but she flatly refuses.
In the lobby, Karen is recounting the accident to Taggart. She was making a call and there were whiteout conditions but she believes she was in her own lane. Taggart says the weather was probably the main cause of the accident. He has yet to talk to Courtney. Taggart has one more question - where was Karen going in such bad weather? To see Courtney to return "something" of Courtney's she'd found. Karen went to check on Courtney as Taggart leaves.
In the on call room, Eve and Chris are chatting. Chris comments on the money Julie's attorney makes and Eve asks what it costs to buy off a witness these days. Chris says that's not true and Eve asks why Courtney changed her testimony then. Chris says she just remembered what really happened. In any case, Eve says, it's a good thing she testified when she did. Why? Eve told him about the car accident. Eve says altho they've never been friends, she can feel for her about the baby.
Back in DV's room, Rachel and DV are discussing Scott and DV. DV says he wants her to back off trying to take the baby away; from now on, it's between he and Scott. Rachel, infuriated, says she made a promise to Julie that she'd help her and that's what she's going to do; first get her acquitted and then reunite her with her daughter. Rachel has already arranged for Julie's mother to come back to PC. The agree that she's a conniving bitch (me too). She told him that she can operate covertly if she has to and she always gets what she wants. DV warns her not to cross him but Rachel told him to save his breath - he might need it. She leaves and runs smack into Scott who speculates as to why she'd be visiting him. She says she was assigned to offer him counselling. Scott says she should counsel him to drop dead. She's surprised he'd say that since DV is his father. Scott says he's on his way to see his father, Lee Baldwin. Scott suggests they drop the whole subject. Rachel tells him she wants to apologise for the way she acted when cott and Lucy were separated.If she'd known they were going to get back together she wouldn't have kissed him; she won't tell Lucy. Scott says no problem and she says she's also glad the charges against him were dropped. She asks if he's like to go for coffee and she'll tell him about Julie's trial. He agrees.
Chris, at the desk, turns to see Julie's mother. Nicole says she supposes congratulations are in order. She hope his marrying Julie wasn't an attempt to make her jealous. He told her their marriage had nothing to do with her. He told her to stay away from Julie. Nicole stops a nurse and says she's there to see Dr. Locke. Chris is stunned.
Joe and Frank discuss Courtney's condition; it's not good. She and the baby will die without surgery. Joe asks Frank to talk to her. Karen and Eve approach and Eve says Courtney's got to go the the OR soon. Frank reluctantly went to try. He does his best but is interrupted by the fetal monitor's alarm. The docs rush in and Courtney is in terrible pain. They prepare to rush her out for tests.
Over coffee, Scott and Rachel rehash the entire scenario; Cooper, Pitbull, Kevin - everything (again). She admits she met with Cooper and Scott says he'll be there when Cooper testifies. Scott excuses himself and Chris comes over to ask Rachel about Nicole's arrival. Rachel feigns surprise but Chris doesn't buy it. He told her it will be very bad if Julie sees her mom and Rachel agrees.
In Courtney's room, Courtney has lost the baby. Her voice is flat and dead, defeated. She signs the release for the surgery and they wheel her out.
