Keri encounters Vanessa, a policewoman, who unknowingly turns Keri off from Antonio by mentioning his way with women. After Antonio parts company with Shawna, he's ready for his coffee date with Keri but she tries to get out of it. He assures her his meeting with Shawna was purely professional but she's not buying it. He won't deal with this, Antonio growls. Keri is just as ticked off, considering that Antonio had a fit when he didn't know she was on the phone with her father. Antonio apolgizes but doesn't really feel that he should since Keri didn't apologize to him. After Antonio departs, Shawna approaches Keri and mentions what a nice guy Antonio is. Keri states that they're not together.

Jen receives a phone call from someone who doesn't answer. She knows it's Cris and tells him she's not mad at him. He gently hangs up the phone.

Bo visits Llanfair at Viki's request; she tells him there's an intruder. Bo is confused when Natalie greets him as "Uncle Bo" and Viki as "Mom." Viki informs him of the DNA test and of what Alison did, along with how Natalie and Seth lied and took advantage of Jessica. Natalie orders Viki to make an announcement soon on her arrival or she'll have to call Todd. Bo makes a phone call to have someone check out the legalities so that Viki can get rid of her "guest." Mrs. Davidson tells the police commissioner that she'll never accept this girl as her daughter, she's evil and horrible. She can't even look at her at all, let alone as a mother. Bo indicates that Natalie could have found a better way to do this but Natalie only blames Viki, for not realizing it wasn't her baby when Alison returned her. Viki empathizes with Natalie and tells her she knows she's hurting because she didn't receive any of the material things that Jess has but she should blame her, not Jess. Jess didn't do anything and she will not allow Natalie to hurt her further. Natalie insists that Jess must have done something to have made Viki like her better. Viki insists that she received the same baby back. She wants Natalie gone and will even give her money. Bo announces that he has obtained a restraining order so that he can take Natalie off to jail now. Natalie claims to be able to prove why she doesn't have to leave.

Blair is unable to accept the fact that her son has been cremated. Paloma expresses her sympathies and takes her to see the baby's room where Blair can definitely feel his presence.

At the airport Todd runs into David Vickers and the two men exchange snide remarks. David tries to pry into why Todd is holding a baby and wonders if it's his and Blair's. Todd only wants him gone. David admits to looking for investors for a deal he has going and if Todd will invest in it he'll be gone just like he wants. During this conversation Todd receives a phone call from Blair, crying from the baby's room. She becomes further agitated when she hears a baby crying in the background and wonders if it's hers. She knows her baby will be back, she insists to Todd. He suggests that she pack so they can leave Mexico right away. He turns back to David and writes him a check to get rid of him and denies still being with Blair. David accuses him of kidnapping so Todd takes out some cash and hands him that as well. Suddenly a couple of nuns appear and they're collecting money for poor children without parents. After David takes money OUT of the jar, Todd gives them the baby and takes off. David reappears and offers to take the baby off their hands.

Seth looks for Cris at the diner but Carlotta discloses that he's left Jen and gone to NYC. He wanted advice on making things better with Jess, he tells her. Jen arrives and demands to know where Cris is because he's called her and he really loves he, even if he didn't say anything on the phone.

Antonio receives a frantic phone call from Carlotta, asking him to get to the diner because Jen is asking questions about Cris. When he arrives at the diner, Carlotta tells him that she really wants to tell Jen the truth, she hates lying. Her son explains that she could die and she can't know. Jen tells him she received a phone call from Cris and she knows he wanted to talk with her. He tells her to go home and let Cris go.

Blair pretends to hold her baby and wants Paloma to look at him. She sobs that she only wants to hold her baby. Todd returns as Blair is pining away. He wants to leave now and Blair can see Starr. She tells him she is not leaving without her baby.

Jen rips up a picture of Cris and tosses out some matches and her birth control pills. Cris calls Antonio who gives him a difficult time for calling Jen. He needs to give Jen time to get over him. He only wanted to hear her voice, Cris says, and he needs to get over her too.
