At the Bennett house, Grace left a phone message for Sam and told him to call her. Meanwhile, Tabitha and Endora enjoyed a nighttime tea party outside in the snowy cold and eavesdropped as Eve, Ivy, Sam, Kay and Simone stood in the yard discussing the Jessica situation. Sam couldn't understand why Grace hadn't called back, and Kay suggested that Kay was just going through a bad girl phase. Ivy told them that Jessica just needed time and space. Sam blamed himself because he worked so much, Ivy said she should have had a firmer hand, and Kay said it was partly her fault too for messing up her relationship with Reese. Ivy said she'd love her and Eve said Jessica needed her real mother. Simone got in a jab about Eve being a rotten mother. Sam told her not to talk to her mother like that. Ivy said she'd give Jessica all the love she missed since Grace left. Eve told her she could never substitute for Grace. When Sam stepped out of earshot, Eve threatened to tell the truth about David not being Grace's long lost husband and Ivy reminded her she was complicit. Eve said she had nothing left to lose. Ivy reminded her that she was just out on bail and that she could very soon lose her freedom. If Eve tells the truth about Ivy, her own involvement will come out in the trial. Ivy reminded her that T.C. called her Poison Ivy for a reason. Kay convinced Sam to give Jessica more time-it couldn't hurt. Jessica was upstairs in the bathroom cutting herself with a razorblade. She said she hated her life, didn't know how to fix it, her mom wasn't there, she'd be better off dead. She wrote "dead" on the bathroom mirror with her blood and then smashed the mirror with a hand mirror. Eve got an emergency phone call, so left in a hurry. Ivy went inside and heard a salesman leaving a phone message, then noticed the one from Grace. She erased it after listening to it and when Sam asked if it was a message from Grace, she told him it was just a sales pitch. Upstairs in the tub, Jessica slipped under the water.
At the Wallace house, Edna and Precious were holed up in her bedroom. Beth slung accusations and threats at them from the other side of the door. Beth tried to sweet talk them out while holding an electric hedge trimmer at the ready. It sounded like Beth left the house, so Edna opened the door and was grabbed by a knife wielding Beth. Precious jumped on Beth and a comical chase ensued with Precious tossing various items at Beth trying to stop her. Finally, she tossed a banana peel in Beth's way so that she slipped and fell. Beth got up and taking her knife, went looking for Luis and Marty.
At Sheridan's cottage, Sheridan and Luis enjoyed the presence of Marty until they realized how little they had to take care of a baby.

As Luis took Marty for cocoa at the waterfront, the orders started arriving on the cottage doorstep. When they were finished with cocoa, Beth ran up to them. Luis asked her if Edna didn't tell her to call him. He thanked her for helping Sheridan. (Beth thought , "Over my dead body.")

When he did, Fox asked him if he was calling to keep Fox from bringing Gwen back home. Ethan started to tell him about Whitney and then Whitney grabbed the phone and told him it was nothing. She reminded him he had to bring back the baby for Theresa. Ethan asked Theresa why Whitney was lying to Fox. Theresa gave a couple of answers that he didn't believe so Theresa asked him to ask Whitney. Whitney said she didn't want to postpone Fox's business trip.

At the park, Luis noticed that Marty was starting to fall asleep and wondered where Beth had gone. He thought she was going for coffee, but she'd been gone for such a long time. Meanwhile, Beth stabbed Sheridan in the chest and back several times. Before Sheridan died, Beth told her all about her evil plot and how she'd gotten Marty and Luis. Luis came in and asked her why she hadn't called 911 then accused her of killing Sheridan. Then the gal at the coffee counter gave Beth her coffee and Beth came out of her fantasy. Luis and Marty walked in and she stammered about why it had taken so long to get the coffee. He thanked her again for letting him have Marty for a few days. Marty and Luis walked into the cottage and Sheridan welcomed them with hot cocoa then read Curious George.
At the Wallace house, Precious and Edna had a final time to reminisce about all their good times. Edna was very sad to have Precious leave to go to her Aunt Divinity. We saw several montages of Precious doing precious things and then fantasizing about herself with Luis. She finally donned her traveling coat and hat and Edna helped her out the door. Just as Edna managed to get back to the living room with her walker, Precious knocked on the door and asked for her bunch of bananas. Again, just as she got to her chair, Edna had to go back to the door to give Precious her train ticket. The final knock on the door was Precious wanting the big bottle of gin. Precious made a final trip around town thinking about Luis in each place. We finally saw her depart for the jungle on the train. Beth arrived home with a bottle of gin for Edna. Her mother reminded her that she was going to wind up an old maid taking care of her and Sheridan was getting Marty and Luis.
At the Crane Corporate office, Alistair encouraged Chad to be a Crane and go after whatever and whomever he wanted even if that meant Whitney.

At the Lopez-Fitzgerald house, the paramedics got ready to transport Whitney and her baby boy to the hospital. Whitney was sure her baby was a monster and Eve prolonged the moment by standing there with a stricken look on her face before saying that the baby was beautiful. Whitney refused to look at "it." Ethan went to pick up Whitney's bag at the Bennett house. When they arrived at the hospital, Eve handed the baby over to be examined by Dr. Carlisle and then had Ethan take Theresa to see the back specialist immediately to look at her now that she was starting to walk. Whitney continued to ignore the baby and didn't want to be examined herself. Julian and Chad arrived and Whitney snapped at Chad to get away from her. Eve covered for her and Julian suggested to Chad that the two of them go get coffee for everybody. Eve told Whitney that she could breast feed the baby as soon as she was checked out by the doctor and Whitney gave a disgusted look and said that her mom could find some formula for him. Then Eve told her to get a grip and start acting like a grown up for the baby she had brought into the world. When they got to the cafeteria, Ethan joined Chad and Julian. Chad asked Ethan where Fox was now that Whitney needed him. Ethan explained the mission to get Jane and Gwen.

Sheridan plays with Marty, and Luis tells her that he can see the resemblance between her and Marty. Sheridan eagerly asks if that means he believes her about Marty being their son and he replies that Marty is Beth's child and he didn't mean it like that. She promises she won't ever say that Marty is her son again. They talk about their "dead" child. Sheridan suggests that Alistair did the same with their baby as he did with Chad, and had their child kidnapped instead of killed. She can't believe Alistair would do something horrible to his own grandchild.
Alistair says he is going to help Beth kill Sheridan. Mrs. Wallace is horrified at the thought of Alistair killing his own daughter, and Alistair explains that he can't risk Sheridan "breeding" with Luis again, or even worse, actually marrying him and giving him access to all things Crane.

Dr. Carlyle rushes Whitney's son to the NICU. She tells Eve that the baby is suffering from acute respiratory distress and that it is touch-and-go until they can get him stabilized—if they can get him stabilized. A nurse brings her the baby's test results, and Dr. Carlyle orders more tests because aspects of his blood tests concern her. Eve asks what's wrong with his blood, and Dr. Carlyle only says that it's something unusual. Theresa goes to talk to Whitney and tells her that her son is gorgeous, and he needs his mother. She tells Whitney it's not fair for her baby to suffer for something that isn't his fault. Eve finds Whitney and asks for her permission to tell Dr. Carlyle that Chad is the baby's father, as that would make it easier for her to treat Whitney's son. Whitney refuses to let her, and tells Eve to stop the doctors from treating him. She says she can't condemn her son to a miserable, shameful life and wants to leave his life in God's hands. Chad, Julian and Ethan are standing outside of the NICU and Chad asks if it's only him, or is it weird that the baby's skin isn't lighter? He says he wants to help Whitney and Julian tells him it's not his place. Chad argues that he loves her, but Julian says that they can't be together.
