At the custody hearing, the judge threatens to have Rory turned over to the state until Cass makes the surprising suggestion that Iris be designated guardian of Rory and of Gwen. Carly balks at the idea and even Gwen is unsure that going back to live with her mother is the right answer. But for the sake of her baby, Gwen decides to ride out the three-month trial period until she can prove she can take care of her baby on her own. Carly never fully gives up hope she might still get the baby until Jack firmly tells her it's time to let this go and concentrate on the family she still has left. In an effort to sway Meg not to tell the truth, Paul suggests Dusty go with her to gather a sample of Rory's blood for a DNA test. When Dusty showers Meg with compliments and cites all the reasons he thinks she's so wonderful, Meg can't bring herself to reveal information that will only serve to push Jennifer and Dusty together. But whether Meg's still on the fence matters not when they show up at Iris's door, only to have the as Iris slam the door in their faces before they can explain why they're there. Just when Katie was feeling more comfortable with BJ, he shows up with a Halloween party costume for her: a cheerleading uniform from her high school, in her size. Katie's a little too creeped out to buy that this was just a coincidence and BJ finally admits he is guilty of trying to keep his star performer happy. Later, in a sincere moment, BJ attributes his lack of social skills to his isolated youth that was spent in front of a computer. Katie realizes she may have been too hard on him and shows up at Java to reveal that not only has she accepted his gift of the uniform but that she's wearing it as well.
