Heather asked Todd for money so that she and her new "son" could disappear. Todd initially refused, but Heather threatened to expose his role in the baby switch. Téa turned up on Todd's doorstep, begging him to help her find her son. Todd took Téa to the motel where Heather was hiding out, but John and Anna were the ones who greeted them. John started to tell Téa that the baby was really Sam's son, but Anna received an update about Heather. Heather had gone to the hospital with the baby to get medicine to treat the baby's blood disorder. Olivia encountered Heather in the stairwell, so Heather pushed Olivia down a flight of stairs. Olivia regained consciousness in time to tell Jason and Sam that Heather had attacked her, so Jason and Sam raced to the hospital's rooftop where Heather had taken the baby.

Because Eve's case was dismissed, the D.A. moved to arrest Liz, but Eve wouldn't sign the complaint, and they were unsure that they had the evidence to pursue it on their own. Despite Eve's compassion, Liz's venom was as strong as ever; she vowed to get revenge. Sam interrogated Jessica, Simone, and Paloma and they stayed strong in denying that Jessica had had anything to do with the murdered john.

Alistair played musical playmates, bouncing from Theresa to Rebecca and back. Gwen told Alistair not to get in the way of her marriage to Ethan, and then when she found Ethan comforting Theresa after she had found out about Luis' death, asked for a divorce. This declaration was interrupted by the sound of Martin shooting Alistair. Everyone ran to the scene and discussed the implications of Alistair's death, only to find that the gun Alistair had given Martin to shoot him was loaded with a blank. Alistair relished finding out how they had all reacted in the moment.
