She begins to yell at Margaret for all of the pain she caused her family. She calls her names and warns her that she'll see that she gets what's coming to her. Bo advises Todd that he was set up. He mentions the kidnapping on Todd's wedding day. Margaret has another flash and though Todd can see that she remembered something, she claims otherwise.

Everyone feels badly for him (except Antonio). They all insist on hearing the test results without him being present. Jess tells Antonio that she loves him no matter what.

Viki and Clint argue about Nash's role in their new granddaughter's life.
Evangeline dodged all of Todd's questions about her date — "anyone special? " he asked. Evangeline suggested Todd stop thinking about revenge and focus on the future. Todd ignored her. "I've got some scores to settle," he said. Evangeline reminded him that God did care about him, after all he survived the execution, with not a hint of brain damage.
Blair volunteered to help Bo find the truth out about Spencer, but still hoped that everyone was wrong about Spencer. That said, however, "If he created this situation," Blair declared, "then he can burn in hell and I will personally take him there." Bo reminded her that Spencer Truman is ice cold, and urged her to go home. Blair told Bo that she heard Spencer admit that he had helped covered up Paige's involvement in Thomas McBain's death. Bo didn't think it was a good idea, but Blair insisted. "I can handle Spencer," she stated. "Don't do anything until I call you," Bo pleaded.
A slightly worried Spencer tried to convince himself that Margaret wouldn't remember him. "I made sure of that," he murmured, and we then saw a flashback of Spencer starting to strangle Margaret. "There are other ways to get rid of a person instead of murdering them." he had assured her way back when. Spencer remembered telling Margaret that he'd find a good place for her son with parents who would love him and telling Margaret (whose mouth was taped in the flashbacks) that Blair was his now.

Vince danced with Evangeline, Cris suggested Layla steer clear of Vincent, as he was slimy. Evangeline thought she should get to know Cris's new manager. Evangeline assured Mr. Jones (Vincent) that she didn't like what she sees. (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.) "I can still read people," Evangeline reminded him. Cris began dancing with Evangeline who shared her concerns about Vincent with him. "I don't trust him," Evangeline said, but Cris said Vincent had bought his boxing contract and he didn't know how he could get out it. Evangeline thought maybe Todd could help. Cris and Evangeline kissed as Vincent and Layla watched.
John confirmed to Margaret that the medical tests showed she had had a baby. Margaret wondered where her baby was. John told Margaret not to worry about Todd going after her. "Todd's in a bed. You are in protective custody." Margaret was relieved that she hadn't caused Evangeline's blindness (she couldn't help but noticed that she had caused many bad things in Llanview) and then had one of those memory flashes. John said they could help her find his baby but they needed something to go on. Margaret burst into Todd's room, "What happened to our baby," she demanded. They called each other monsters and Margaret left. "John we need to talk," Todd said. "I owe you my life. I'm going to pay you back some day." Margaret left with her police escort.
