Outside, Mike whittles a gift for the baby. Katie tries to focus the two guys on making Carly comfortable. She has an idea about throwing Carly a party based on something she read in a Native American birthing ritual book.
Later, Katie starts to set up for a "blessing way" while Carly is resting in bed. Hannah says that it's kind of like a Native American baby shower, then excuses herself to run some errands. Carly thinks it's a sweet idea. Mike comes in with a bundle of flowers and Katie asks him to put them at Carly's feet. Jack gives Katie some stones and she places them all around Carly on the bed. Katie pulls out some beads and gives one to each person to make a wish for Carly and the baby, with the intention that later, Carly would string the beads together and wear it as a necklace. Jack makes his wish first. "I'll make sure this baby never has to fight and that she'll be given everything she'll ever need." Mike can't hold his tongue and says, "Kinda jumping the gun aren't ya Jack?" Carly and Katie try to stop him, but Mike has to say his peace. Mike says he'll find a way to live with Carly choosing Jack over him to be her labor partner, but the baby is most likely his. Jack blows up and screams at Mike, "What is it you want!" Carly shh's them both and says, "I'm going to tell you both what I want! I want Jack to be this baby's father, even if it's biologically proven to be Mike's." She says the baby will have two separate fathers with double the love. Mike doesn't like what he hears. "Sorry Carly, it's not that simple. I don't doubt that the two of you love each other, but your relationship could end tomorrow, or in two years, or in five years." He wonders how his daughter might react when Jack disappears all of a sudden. He turns to Carly and says, "You've gotta come up with a plan B."

You're not going anywhere." She wants to know why he won't turn the bottle over to the police. He says he thought Dr. Hughs dropped the bottle, so he was covering for him.
