She asks him to meet her and tells him that she has reason to fear Craig. Paul decides to go help her, and while she is not happy about it, Emily supports his decision. Paul leaves and Susan arrives.

Susan expresses concern that Emily will get hurt.

Craig calls Rosanna from his car and tries to persuade her to come home and be a mother to "their son." Rosanna will not agree to ignore the fact that Craig switched the babies in the hospital, and then she is horrified to realize that Craig is right behind her in his car.

The EMTs arrive and begin working on Rosanna. Craig comes through the trees and Paul threatens to kill him. Hal shows up and separates the two.

Keith tells Lily that he ran into a door because he was thinking of her.....Lily knows this is a lie, but goes on into the bar with her mother.

Emily admits that she did try, but tells him she is really worried about Paul. Will believes her, but can't help throw in a few jabs about Paul and Rosanna and how Paul will eventually leave Emily for Rosanna. Shortly after Will leaves, Emily gets a phone call from Susan who tells her that Rosanna was in an accident and is in the hospital.

Unfortunately for Emily, things are not going well for Paul. Although Rosanna was talking after the accident and Ben thought the prognosis was good, Craig visited Rosanna and tried to find out if she told anyone about the baby. Rosanna had seizures and went into a coma, from which Ben is certain she will not recover. He encouraged Paul to talk with Rosanna, and Emily opens the door to the room just as he tells Rosanna that he loves her and pleads with her not to leave him as he will never love anyone like he loved her.

Dusty and Meg were going to have dinner when Jennifer walked up. Dusty wanted to know if Jennifer was doing okay and asked her to stay for dinner. Jennifer accepted and excused herself to go to the restroom. Meg asked Dusty how long Dusty was going to be the knight in shining armor. Dusty said that Jennifer was just a friend and he was trying to help a friend through a difficult tine. Jennifer came back and Meg left looking back at the two of them. Jennifer told Dusty to go on with his life and not wait on her. Dusty wanted to take her to the park for a walk but Jennifer said she couldn't go because there would be babies in the park and it was too soon for her. Dusty said she had to go on and she would have lots more opportunities to have babies. Meanwhile, Meg went home to find Lucinda dressed for the stockholder's meeting. Lucinda wanted Meg to help her with her coat. Meg refused telling Lucinda is was too soon for her to return to work. Lucinda fired Meg but when Lucinda pulled her stitches hired her back. Dusty's name came up in the conversation and it was a good excuse for Meg to call Dusty and demand that he come to Lucinda's house. When Dusty arrived, Meg told him that Lucinda has breast cancer. Meg was hoping that Dusty would stop Lucinda from going to work. Lucinda walked into the room demanding to know why Dusty was there. It came out about Lucinda's illness and Dusty told her that he was upset with her and was ready to quit. Dusty asked Lucinda when she was going to start trusting him. Lucinda said right now and sent him off to the stockholder's meeting. Dusty asked Meg what she was really up to.

Paul told Emily about the accident and she said she already knew. Paul was surprised and apologized because he wanted to tell her. He said everything happened so fast and said he was sorry again. Emily said he was forgiven and not to worry about it. Paul goes onto to tell Emily that he isn't good for anyone right now and kisses her then leaves the room. Emily started crying as she put her suitcase behind the chair. Later, Emily made drinks for Paul so he could relax and decompress. Paul was appreciative that Emily was there. Then, Paul received a call from Tom who said Craig made bail. Paul left abruptly with Emily hot on his heels but Emily went to the hospital instead and found out that Rosanna's condition would never improve.

Craig wanted to know if the charges stick against him will Margo raise the baby. Margo said that the baby wasn't his and it would probably be put up for adoption. Craig said if he could prove that he were the father would Margo raise him. There conversation was interrupted by a phone call. When she hung up she told Craig that he was going to get his wish. Margo told Craig that Rosanna already arranged for a guardian and it was Carly. Margo left to check on Craig's bail. Jennifer came in and Craig told her about the accident. Jennifer didn't believe it and slapped Craig calling him a monster. Craig told Jennifer that the baby was better off dead than to have Jennifer as a mother. Just as that was said Paul walked in.

Friday, July 29, 2005

At the police station, Craig tells Jennifer that the baby is better off dead than having her as a mother. Paul, who has just arrived, overhears this and punches Craig, knocking him to the floor. Hal and Margo intervene, and Hal tells Paul he has no business being there and should be arrested for assault. Paul tells Hal that Tom has indicated Craig might make bail, and he implores him to prevent that from happening. Hal tells Paul he seems to have a conflict of interest in sleeping with Hal's wife while still trying to be Rosanna's defender. Hal later reports that he told the bail judge hearing Craig's case that Craig had assaulted Jennifer, and the judge has refused to grant bail. Katie comes to visit Craig at the police station and finds out what he's accused of doing. He tells her it's another conspiracy against him, and that he'll never get out of jail. Paul tells Craig that he'll find out what it was that Rosanna was trying to tell him Craig had done, and that if the courts don't serve justice in Craig's case, he'll make sure justice is served personally. Paul then offers to take Jenn home, but Hal gruffly tells him that since Jenn is his daughter, he'll take her home. Jenn appears bewildered by the obvious animosity between Hal and Paul.

When Katie leaves to go talk to Margo and try to get a first aid kit for Craig, he grabs a book of matches out of her purse and sets fire to the interrogation room, making his escape in the confusion that follows. Margo tells Katie she's going to organize a manhunt for Craig, and that she'll make sure he doesn't get away with this.

Hal, meanwhile, has taken Jennifer out for coffee, where he is interrupted by a call from Margo telling him about Craig's breakout. He leaves and asks Jennifer to stay put, so he can send some uniformed officers to watch over her until Craig is caught, but she leaves despite his warning and goes to find Dusty.

Dusty has been working at Lucinda's house, trying to prepare for the stockholders' meeting. Meg tries to distract him, then tells him she'll leave him alone so he can work, but she changes into a swimsuit and returns to the house dripping wet, which makes it hard for Dusty to concentrate. They kiss, and when Meg can't convince Dusty to go for a "swim," they decide to go out for a drink. She picks the Lakeview bar, because Dusty's room is conveniently located upstairs, and after whispering to Dusty what her plans are, she goes to use the ladies' room. Jenn comes in and sees Dusty and tearfully tells him about her encounter with Craig and Craig's subsequent escape from the police station, telling Dusty she's worried that he might come after her. Dusty tells Jennifer that she's come to the right place, and he'll protect her. Meg sees the two of them together and makes a gracious exit, saying she was just leaving anyway.

At the hospital, Jack tells Carly he thinks she should go home to be with Rosanna's baby instead of waiting by Rosanna's side at the hospital for the medical transport people to come move Rosanna to the special clinic in Switzerland. Carly eventually agrees, and she says her goodbyes to Rosanna, promising her that she will make sure her son knows who his mother is and loves her like Carly does. She tells Rosanna that she doesn't even know what she wanted to name her son, but the nurses have been calling him Samson because he's proven to be so strong. Before she leaves, Carly tells Jack that she wants Craig dead for what he's done to Rosanna. Carly goes home and pays the nurse who has been watching Samson, but when the baby cries, she has a flashback to the black baby carriage with Iris's baby boy inside, and she sees it rolling away. The nurse leaves, and while Carly goes to get a bottle for the baby, Craig arrives and lets himself into the house. Carly comes out of the kitchen with the bottle and sees Craig pushing the baby carriage away and shouts out, "You get away from that baby!"

Back at the hospital, Paul also goes to tell Rosanna goodbye. He talks to Jack first and tells him that Carly was right to blame him for what happened to Rosanna, because it really was his fault. He tells Jack he's glad that Rosanna picked him and Carly to raise her adopted child, because he thinks they're the opposite of his own family and will do a great job with the baby. He then goes into Rosanna's room and tells her he's sorry that he has always been too late --- too late to save Cabot, too late to realize that James made Rosanna break up with him, too late to believe Rosanna when she tried to tell him the truth, and too late to respond to her recent declaration of love. He promises never to be too late again, and never to be too good --- he will fight fire with fire and knock aside anyone who gets in the way of him protecting Rosanna or her baby.
