Jake told Scott that Lucy will be OK. Scott guesses that he also means the baby won't be. Jake explains that the pregnancy has been compromised and Scott told him he is talking about someones child.

Kevin comes out and told Scott the doctor is examining Lucy, but she wanted him to come out and check on Serena. The doctor calls Kevin and he went back in with Lucy. The doctor explains she can't find a heartbeat and orders another test. Lucy can't believe it and told the doctor not to give up this can't be true. Kevin hugs Lucy and Lucy apologizes, but he told her not to...it's not her fault. She asks if he is crying, she couldn't bear it if he was crying. He assures her he isn't crying. She begs him not to let her go.

Scott went to see Serena and thanks Eve. Scott asks Serena to go inside and wait with him, but she won't go even when he promises to hold her hand. She asks if Lucy is coming home. Scott told her that Lucy has to stay here for a few days. He explains that Lucy and Kevin's baby was born too early and couldn't live. Lucy and Kevin are very upset now. Serena says she feels bad for Lucy. Scott told Serena that the night she was born Lucy was there too, there were never two happier people than they were that night. They look for Dominique's star, and Scott says it looks brighter tonight because Lucy's baby is with Dominique now. Serena says that her mom will take care of the baby just like she would take care of her.

Lucy returned from the test and asks the doctor what they do now. The doctor told her they have to schedule a D&C for tonight. Kevin asks why so soon, and the doctor told him the test showed no heartbeat or movement so it would be better for Lucy to have the procedure done tonight. She leaves to schedule the procedure. Lucy cries and told Kevin she feels no more pain anymore. She went on to say she didn't mind the pain with Serena because it was worth it in the end. This time there is no more pain and all she can do is lay there and watch their dreams fade away. Then they are going to wheel her in and give her medicine for the pain and hope it makes her forget, but she will never ever forget this. Kevin holds her while she cries.

Frank can't understand why Julie lied. She says she came to PC to make a life for herself on her own and was going to tell him. His pager went off and he has to leave. She grabs the article and burns it.

Scott told Eve to watch Serena carefully...she's all he's got. Eve asks Serena what she wants to do now. They look at the stars and name them all. Serena shows Eve her mommy's star and told her Lucy's baby is with her now. Eve sees a bruise on her arm and asks how she got it. Serena doesn't know.

Lucy told Kevin if the baby was a boy she wanted to name it Simon. Kevin repeats the name...Simon Coe Collins. She wanted him to be just like his daddy, strong. Kevin says he would be strong like his mommy, but Lucy says she doesn't feel very strong. She told him she is going to be OK and asks him not to be worried about her. She asks Kevin to say it, and he holds her as he told her he loves her. The doctor comes in and told them it is time. Lucy gives her engagement ring to Kevin and asks him to hold it until she gets back so that she has something to look forward to. She told him she loves him and they take her to the OR. Kevin looks at the ring and breaks down. Scott comes into the room.
