At Tower's:

In the elevator, Cassie and Reva realize they are stuck. They make some negative comments about how they both didn't want to talk to each other but finally figure out that neither of them were angry with the other. Cassie filled Reva in on the past few months and ended up thanking her for coming to SC and setting Richard free from their past. She told her that was the turning point for them and things have been getting better ever since.

Richard and Buzz looked for Cassie and Reva. Cassie had mentioned meeting him at the car. They heard the alarm on the elevator and discovered that Reva and Cassie were in the stuck in the elevator.

Buzz told Selena and Blake that Reva and Cassie were stuck in the elevator. Ross and Buzz wonder if the women had anything to do with it but they said they didn't. Meanwhile, Richard demands the technician hurry and get them out.

Reva and Cassie made up and Reva apologizes to her sister. They tell each other that they miss each other and love each other. Just then Richard calls and asks Cassie if they are all right. She tells him that things are great. She hangs up and she and Reva catch up while they worked on the elevator. Reva told her about her recent television appearance and how she has had job offers. Cassie tells Reva that she wishes she could be part of her wedding but it would be too awkward for the people. Reva tells her she will be there in spirit. They hug and the elevator falls.

Drew shows up. She wants to congratulate Michelle and Danny. Selena talk to Selena about how Michelle forgave her. Meanwhile, at the party, Michelle just told Danny she was pregnant. They are both thrilled. Danny wants to tell everyone but Michelle doesn't. She tells him she wants to keep it just between them for now. Drew comes up and interrupts them. She hugs Michelle and tells her how happy she is for her. Drew leaves. Michelle tells Danny that she has been feeling different and thought she may be pregnant for a few weeks but now that she is sure she only wants to share it with her for a while.

Michelle tells Danny that she saw him with Bernardo and wants to make sure he isn't planning on bringing their baby in that mob business. He tells her that he wants nothing to do with that life ever again. They go out to leave and are toasted by their party.

Rick tells Claire that he never asked her to change his test scores and if she told on him she would have just as much to lose. She told him she would risk it just so she could have a relationship with Michelle. Rick reminds her that he didn't come forward because he didn't want to bring things down on his family and because he did go back unofficially and retook the test and passed. Rick told her that she should have just gone back to Chicago. She tells him that all she wants is a little time with Michelle without any interference from him. He agrees to let her stay in the garage apartment and then leaves for the hospital.

Claire goes over to Danny and tells him that she hopes they have time to get to know each other. He tells her not to get her hopes up where Michelle is concerned. She says, maybe in time, and he says maybe. She writes something down and goes to put it in Michelle's purse and finds the pregnancy test.

The party is breaking up and Claire is still shell shocked about the test. Claire asks if Michelle is all right that she looks different. She asks Michelle if she is pregnant. Michelle is blown away. She asks her how she knew that and Claire said it was just something a mother knows.



At the hospital:

Carmen asks Edmund to help her escape. He thinks about it when she offers him money and power but refuses in the end. Edmund told her he was trying to reform. Edmund tries to explain his reasons for reforming but she calls him a fool and tries to run. She yanks Beth out of the elevator and gets in but Frank sees her and stops her while Edmund checks on Beth. Frank informs Carmen that she just added a few more charges to her rap sheet.

Frank takes Carmen back to her room and handcuffs her to a chair. Carmen sees Pilar there and starts to cry. Pilar tells her that her tears will not get to her. Carmen said, "Of course not, you're too much like me." Pilar tells her she is nothing like her. Carmen tells her she has the same instincts that she does. She was able to trick Ben and Carmen and hid the barer bonds from the police instinctively. She tells Pilar that she is more like her than Danny or Mick ever was. Carmen tells her that they are so much alike that she will help get her out of this mess. Bill comes in and tells Pilar not to listen to Carmen.

Noah brings the results to Harley, Beth and Jim. The bad news was that Lizzie's condition had deteriorated and she is now very prone to infection. Beth wants to know why things are getting so complicated. Noah tells them that Lizzie needs a stronger dose of chemotherapy. Beth says, "No." that the chemo she is getting now has already destroyed her immune system. Jim tells her to go call Phillip and it may help her decide what to do.

Beth tries to call Phillip but has to leave a message. She hangs up and starts crying. Edmund comes up and asks if she is all right. She turns to Edmund and he holds her while she cries. She tells him that she is scared she is going to lose her daughter and doesn't know what to do. Beth tells Edmund that he has been a rock for her and she appreciates it.

Harley reads Lizzie a story that Phillip had wrote for her. Rick started to put an I.V. in for Lizzie but couldn't do it. Noah asks if he can help. Rick goes outside, Harley follows and Rick tells her that he is hyperventilating. He said he is upset and couldn't help Lizzie because he isn't really a doctor. Harley tells him that he is a real doctor and that it shouldn't matter that he didn't pass the test Claire altered, since he had passed it later on. Beth comes up and asks for Rick's help. She tells him that she needs his advice. She wants to know what he recommends about giving Lizzie a higher dosage of chemo. Rick tells her that he can't help her. She wants to know if there are any other things she should worry about. Noah comes out and asks her again what she wants to do. She looks at Rick and he tells her that Dr. Chase is the expert in that field and she should trust him. Beth and Noah go in to see Lizzie. Harley and Rick stay outside and he tells her that! he would feel terrible if anything happens to Lizzie because of him.

He said he took a bunch of pills right before he took his medical boards and failed miserably. She didn't understand how he could be a doctor without the tests. He told her how Claire changed his grades. Abby asks him if he would have ever told her if Claire weren't an issue. She tells him she doesn't know how she can help him.

Outside, Billy tells Josh that he has to get his life in order. He tells him that he sees how much he cares for Olivia and how he wants her in his life. But to do that he needs to make a decision and either go ahead with the separation or leave Olivia alone. Billy asked him if he had to choose who would he stay with. Josh said probably Reva because she is the mother of his children. Billy told him that a year ago he would have said because he couldn't live without her.
