Caitlin is stunned at her mother. Caitlin yells at Olivia demanding the truth...the truth being that Olivia KNOWS who the woman is that Cole slept with. Olivia and Cole are relieved to realize that Caitlin still doesn't know Olivia is the other woman, but that she thinks Olivia knows who the woman is. Olivia says it's best that she doesn't know the truth, Caitlin demands to know. Cole says fine, he'll tell her the name of the woman in exchange that she'll never dwell on it again and that she'll never throw it in his face when something goes wrong in their relationship. Caitlin told Cole that she can't make that promise unless she knows the woman's name. Cole says it can't work that way. He can't keep his part of the deal if this may cause their love to end. Caitlin gives in, saying if Cole is willing to forget about the past and move on...than so is she. Caitlin leaves to run an errand...Cole stays behind to talk to Olivia. Cole says he needs something cleared up...Olivia jumps in and told him the only reason Caitlin trusts him is because he's a major con-artist. Cole says he loves Caitlin, but he had to make her choose their love over the truth because she can't know the real truth. Olivia says maybe it's better that she does...Cole told Olivia if she did find out, it would only make Caitlin realize that Cole could be Olivia's baby's father too...by the way, he asks how far along is she...
Caitlin seeks Elaine's advice...how did Elaine handle A.J.'s infidelity's? She asks if things might have changed if Elaine didn't know that Olivia had been the other woman. Elaine told Caitlin if Cole says that the woman meant nothing...she should trust that and forget about the past.
Gregory makes certain that his surprise will be at Grenadine's that night. Cole presses Olivia to tell him when she conceived. Cole suspects that Olivia is at the end of her first trimester. Olivia denies. Gregory overhears Olivia tell Cole that Gregory forced her to announce the pregnancy. As Cole leaves, he looks at the doctor's bill in his pocket and says having a baby is really expensive, but he can handle it. Gregory confronts Olivia saying that she told Cole about the fake pregnancy. Olivia explains that she only told Cole that he pushed her to make sure Caitlin doesn't announce her pregnancy in the "festivities" this evening. If she does, and something went wrong, Caitlin will feel horrible for not waiting till her pregnancy is safe. Gregory thanks Olivia for being so brilliant. As Olivia is getting ready for tonight's dinner...Gregory has Olivia put on a very valuable necklace, which is part of the Deschanel Jewels. Noticing Olivia's appetite has picked up, Gregory says if he didn't no better, he'd think she really were pregnant.
Elaine told Caitlin that she really should forget about Cole's past...the reason her and Cole are so in love is because their love is pure and true, whereas her romance with A.J. was love too, but Elaine got pregnant, which changed everything. Luckily Caitlin doesn't have that problem...Caitlin invites Elaine to the family dinner.
Annie is certain she will get Ben know that Meg is out of the way. Annie tells Bette she has finally won the battle. Bette tries to explain to Annie that her obsession will get her no where.

Annie brushes Bette off saying she has no right to talk...she's had 7 husbands. Bette tries to plea with Annie not to make the same mistakes she has...be with a man who loves you truly, not forcefully.
Meg agrees to hear Ben out after his many pleas. Ben continues to say he loves her, but she told him that's what makes her so angry...he doesn't know what he's saying, he's too caught up in the past. Meg told him she thought he was her dream man, but she was wrong. Ben kisses Meg, Meg then pulls away. Ben told her he knows by that kiss that she loves him. Meg calls Ben "Ben" which forces his subconscious to say "I love you Maria." Meg in shock runs out the door and went into her cab. Vanessa overheard Ben say "Maria".
