Austin wants to know how she is? Greta says she is fine, today is a new day, so she's staring with a fresh slate. Austin knows she was upset last night, but Greta says she got over it. She then starts rambling on at high speed about how she is young and has so many possibilities for a wonderful future, and she's thinking about getting a job in an art museum or something. Austin eventually steers the conversation back to Eric. Greta says Eric is out of her life, she trusted him and thought she had a future with him, but she knows now that she doesn't. Greta tells Austin that she sees now that Eric still loves Nicole. Austin says that you can't stop caring about someone you were engaged to, but Greta says she can't stand feeling like she has to measure up to Nicole constantly. She tells Austin that she doesn't know how he got over Carrie's betrayal, but then again he is a man so perhaps he doesn't feel as deeply as women do. That pisses Austin off, and he tells her that she doesn't know him well enough to judge him that way! Greta says she is sorry, and he says it is okay because he has a lot of feeling bottled up inside, and it feels good to let them out. Austin then advises Greta to think long and hard before throwing away what she has with Eric.

Lucas says he won't give up his son, no matter what anyone, including Nicole, say. Kate is furious and asks why he puts up with Nicole?

Nicole says she is not pregnant, but she wishes it was that simple. Nicole says she doesn't know what is wrong with her, but thinks it has to do with her past. When Eric probes her, she closes up. He says here we go again, she is shutting herself off to him again. She apologizes and says she is just scared. Eric holds Nicole, and she says "what if . . . . " Eric asks "What if what?" Eric asks if this could have anything to do with the mistakes she made in the past? Nicole almost tells Eric what her father made her do, but she doesn't. She says she should have known better, but she was just a kid. Nicole asks Eric to hold her. Suddenly, Lucas walks in and says "Hold me Eric?"

At the hospital, John asks Bo and Hope not to name the baby after him. Hope asks why this makes him feel so uncomfortable? John asks Hope to just drop it. He gives them some other ideas, such as Evan. Bo says that he read about Evan in a book Mrs. H. gave him, and it is derived from the Hebrew name John. Hope thinks it is a sign, so the baby will be named John. Dr. Bader comes in and tells Hope that she has their release papers for her. Hope asks if this means the baby can come home with her? Dr. Bader says no, not before they talk. Hope asks Dr. Bader if something is wrong with their son? Hope asks John if he can excuse them? He says of course, but spies on them. Hope says she wants to know if something is wrong with their son. While Bo is calming her down, John decides to find out what is wrong with the baby. Dr. Bader tells Hope and Bo that the baby is still irritable and not eating well, but Hope wants to take him home. Bo tells her that perhaps that isn't a good idea. He says maybe they should do as the doctor says. Hope agrees, but asks to see him before they leave.

John goes to the nursery and sees the baby crying. He flashes back to his mercenary days and how he remembered using good old fashion charm in one mission to get what he wanted.

June 23
At Titan, Kate tells Nicholas that he is mad, he has declared his undying love in front of Lucas and now he wants to tell Victor? Nicholas says that it is time for Victor to be honest about this life he and if forcing her to live, and if he doesn't do this then they will both regret it. Kate says Victor isn't forcing her to stay with him, but Nicholas feels he needs to fight for Kate. Kate says this isn't a fairy tale, and her hand has already been won. Nicholas knows, despite her protests, that she wants to be with him. He asks her to be honest with herself for once. Kate says she will never choose him over Victor, so this is pointless. She tells him that they'll never be together, and he'll never win her love. Kate then finally realizes what he's up to, if he can't get what he wants then he will make as many lives as miserable as possible. She tells him that he is a true Alamain, he is selfish and vindictive! Nicholas asks if she really believes that? Kate says if he goes to Victor then people will gossip about them. Nicholas says he doesn't care, but Kate says she does. Kate tells Nicholas if he really loves her then he will prove it by cooling it and doing what she asks. Nicholas walks out of Kate's office. Later, Kate has fantasies about Victor washing her back. He tells her that he never stopped loving her and he can't wait for them to get married and start their life together as a family. She also remembers a time when she and Victor were late to a party to spend some time in one another's arms. Kate hugs Nicholas' stuffed dog and hopes Nicholas will move on with his life and accept that hers is with Victor.

Victor's doctor comes to see him at his office because Victor feels more comfortable there. Victor tells his doctor that he thinks the drug he has been taking is actually working. Victor thinks he's starting to get some sensation back, and the doctor says it is possible that the impotency was caused by his stroke or the medications he was on. The doctor tells Victor what is important that he doesn't force himself. Later, Victor calls Marie into his office and asks her to clear Kate's calender without her knowing because he wants to take her away someplace special. Marie has a suggestion for him as she heard Kate talking about a photo shoot the other day and someplace she'd really love to go. She gives him the info on the place, and Victor thanks her. Victor hopes he'll be able to relax on a beautiful Hawaiian Island with his lovely Kate. Suddenly, Nicholas barges into Victor's office. Victor is not pleased and tells Nicholas never to do that again, and in the future if he wants to see him to make an appointment. Nicholas tells Victor that he wants to talk about an important topic, his impotence.

In the photo lab, Lucas overhears Nicole ask Eric to hold her. Eric tells Lucas that this is not what he thinks, he can explain. Lucas tells Eric to get his damn hands off his wife, and begins shoving Eric. They almost come to blows until Nicole butts her way in between them to stop them from throwing punches. Nicole asks Eric to leave so she can talk to Lucas, so he does. Nicole tells Lucas that he made a fool of himself, Eric was only comforting her. Lucas says that is not his job, his job is to take pictures. Lucas says she told him when they married that she was over Eric, but he guesses that is not the case. He tells her the only reason she asked him to rehire Eric is so she could spend as much time possible with him, and he finally gets the message. Nicole wants to explain, but Lucas says there is no explanation needed. He says he's given her everything, but it just isn't good enough. Lucas says the only thing he wants from her is fidelity, and she can't even give him that. He wonders what kind of marriage this is. Lucas goes to walk out, but Nicole stops him and tells him that Eric was comforting her because she went to the doctor today, and she's scared. Lucas asks her why, so she explains what happened at the Blue Note last night. Nicole says that Eric came in her today to see if she was okay, and she was scared and wanted a hug. Lucas asks why she didn't tell him because he would have gone with her. Lucas asks if she is pregnant? Nicole says no she's not pregnant, but something is wrong with her. Lucas asks what is wrong? Nicole says she was going to talk to him about it, but she's changed her mind. Lucas comments "You can talk to Eric but not your own husband!" Nicole says she can talk to anyone but him. She tells him that he promised to take care of her, but anywhere outside the bedroom he treats her just like his mother does! She says that both Kate and Victor embarrass her, and he stands by and lets them do it. Now, she says, he is embarrassing her too, and she asks him for one reason not to walk away from this marriage? Lucas apologizes for embarrassing her and for doubting her, and he tells her that he'll help her deal with whatever is wrong with her because he loves her. He says he is sorry, but Nicole says his apologizes are meaningless because this will happen again the next time he sees her talking to Eric. She says she's surprised he hasn't thrown her past in her face, but she's sure that is coming to. Lucas says he would never judge anyone for their past mistakes, but they both know Eric would. Still, Lucas says she is always confiding in him. Nicole tells Lucas that he is never there for her. When he tries to hold her, she yells at him to stay away from her, and she runs out of the room.

" Belle tells Phillip he hasn't gotten his final answer, and drags Chloe off. They talk and Belle convinces Chloe that she wants to go to the dance with Phillip.
