Al shows up and Jen tells him about a misunderstanding she's had with her boyfriend but admits how wonderful things are between them and how much she loves him. He's just angry over a chain some guy gave her to repay her for a broken phone. Al just wants her to be happy and suggests that Jen enter a contest for prettiest girl on campus. He tells off Shawna and Mollie for being jealous when they overhear and make rude remarks. Cris watches from nearby, afraid to leave Jen alone. Antonio assures him that a fellow cop, Casey, will keep an eye on her while they peruse more mug shots. Cris is happy that he and Jen argued so that the attacker will think they're apart and won't hurt her to get to him. Cris is able to pick Keith's picture out of the book which disturbs Antonio. This man is a pro wanted for murder-he's already got 4 charges hanging over his head. Antonio is unable to promise that Jen will be safe even with full time protection and assumes that R.J. didn't realize this man was so lethal when he hired him. Cris thinks the original deal was only for Keith to scare him but made it personal when he fought back. Cris figures the only way out is to break up with her. Keith calls information for Jen's home phone number.

Jess tells Troy that he's mistaken, that Seth and Natalie aren't dating each other. When she presses him for more details, he admits that he saw them kissing though he "may have misinterpreted." He suggests that Jess have a talk with Seth, while she insists it must be a mistake.

Viki walks in on Natalie telling Seth he belongs to her, not Jessica. She jumps at them both for being liars and for carrying on together. Seth attempts to apologize for Natalie's extremely sarcastic manner but Viki orders him out so that she can speak to Natalie alone. Natalie seems to have a sudden change in personality as she informs Viki that she and Seth have been lovers for a long time and she was never out on the street; it was all part of the plan. Viki wants Natalie gone from the premises and the carriage house immediately. Natalie refuses to go.

Rae convinces Allison that it's been Ben Davidson she's been talking to all along, not "Dave." He's only feeling overprotective for Viki but she forgave Allison so Ms. Perkins should hold on to that. When "Dave" returns after he sees Rae go off, Allison plays dumb. She's decided to wait to see Rae to say goodbye, she tells him. He wavers back and forth over hearing her plan now or later and she becomes suspicious, telling him that she hates liars. After she gets her stuff and says goodbye she'll tell him all, she says. Rae finds Ben and is angry at him for confronting Allison which he denies. He's angry with Rae for revealing his true identity to Allison and tells her she doesn't know what Ms. Perkins is really capable of. Allison eavesdrops nearby.

Starr visits Addie with the collage-she can't read the script in it. Addie tells her it's a letter from Blair to Todd but they can't read someone else's mail. The pair argue over what to do when Rae happens to walk by. She rips the collage in half along with the letter and tells them now it's settled. Starr advises Rae that she can't read script so Rae reads her portion of the letter. It says "It's your." Starr wants to see Addie's half and pulls it out of her hand. It reads "baby Todd." Addie laughs that Todd isn't a baby but Starr is able to put it all together and is ecstatic.

Blair is having contractions and begs Todd to search for the midwife. She tells him the baby is premature.

Sam seeks Troy out and demands to know why Troy ordered more tests for Matthew without his permission. The boy has two parents and they both need to be consulted, he yells. Soon after, Sam's cell rings and it's Blair calling from Mexico begging for help, she's having the baby. She tells him that Todd is near but she's afraid to tell him the truth though she knows now that he loves her and won't leave her. She begs Sam to put a doctor on the phone and he grabs Troy, still standing nearby. Todd returns looking helpless and uncomfortable- he can't find anyone and he just doesn't want to be there for this. He offers to drive Blair to the hospital which is about 50 miles from there but Blair says she can't manage that. She has something to tell him, she indicates, but gets put off by another contraction. Todd picks up the phone and talks with Troy, who'll tell him how to deliver the baby. He instructs him first of all, to disregard Blair's name calling, that it is a normal part of the labor. He wants him to look for the baby's head. Todd is a bit squeamish but finally looks quickly. He's frantic as he sees the baby coming.

Jess lets herself into Seth's apartment with the key he left behind at the hospital. She finds the blouse that she gave to Natalie and starts to remember different things in the past that may have indicated the truth. She spots pictures of Seth and Natalie together just as Seth walks in.
