She says there is just a lot about him that she doesn't know. Lexie says, for example, she doesn't know about the women he dated before her. Abe asks what she thinks, he has a secret wife or some kid he's never told her about? Lexie asks him if he does?

Craig says he doesn't care what people think, and if the hospital doesn't like it than that is just tough. Craig asks who she listed as Chloe's father on the birth certificate?

Nancy says he is, and she realizes that if they go public, he could find out about it. Craig asks if this man would acknowledge her as his daughter?

Lexie says he isn't the only one who is scared, and they will go through it together. Abe asks Lexie to tell him about this woman who is having the baby, where did she find her? Lexie says the woman is actually a distant relative of Stefano's. Abe says he didn't know Stefano had African-American relatives. Lexie says he doesn't. Abe was under the impression that they would be adopting a black child, but Lexie accuses him of rejecting the child because it is related to Stefano.

Sami tells Brandon about the case, her execution, and the confession which saved her. However, she tells Brandon about the new evidence that void's Roberto's confession. Brandon thinks she is skating on thin ice, because if Roberto's confession is proved false, the DA could open the case back up and re-charge her. Sami says that she and her dad won't let that happen, not only will they prove that Roberto didn't kill Franco, they will prove that Kate and Lucas framed her for the murder! Brandon asks if Kate and Lucas would really do something that horrible? Sami says they would and they did, and she may finally be able to prove it! Sami explains the entire story to Brandon, how the murder happened, and how she knows she didn't kill Franco. She also tells Brandon that she and Franco were planning to move to California, which is why Lucas and Kate would have done anything to stop her from leaving. Brandon asks how she knows Roberto didn't kill Franco? Sami tells him that Henderson saw Roberto at the strip club that night. Sami says that she and her dad are going to the club to try and find hard evidence placing Roberto there. Brandon wishes her luck because strip club owners don't respond well to cops. When Sami asks how he would know, he tells her that he used to be a bouncer at one. Sami tells Brandon that he is just full of surprises, which makes her wonder what else she is hiding. Brandon tells Sami that if she runs into trouble to tell him because he may be able to help her out. Sami swears that she will nail Kate and Lucas for what they did to her and then they will go to prison, preferably death row!

Lucas runs to the bar and says he could really use a drink right now. Kate asks him what would make him suddenly crave a drink? Lucas tells her not to freak out, he wasn't really going to drink. However, he just can't help but think how different their lives could be if things hadn't turned out the way they did. Kate knows he is talking about Franco's murder, and says she tries not to think about it. Lucas tells his mom about his conversation with Greta today, and he thinks she is nice. Kate wants to return to talking about Franco's murder, but Lucas thinks the case is closed, who would want to bring it up now? Kate says Sami would! Kate says that Sami knows she was framed and she will never stopped trying to pin the crime on them. Lucas says she covered their tracks, but Kate says she tried her best, everything happened so fast. Lucas says his only mistake was drinking too much that night, and trying to kidnapping his son. Kate tells Lucas that the reason Franco was going to kill her was because she was going to expose his scheme to Sami, which was to marry her to stay in the country. Lucas is furious with his mother and says if she had only told Sami the truth before hand, and not during the wedding which was her original plan, then none of this would have happened! Lucas tells his mom that as a result of her need to humiliate Sami, she put all of their lives in danger. Kate says she did want to see Sami suffer, but she never dreamed that Franco would try and kill her, and when Sami fainted after seeing Franco dead, it was like a gift. She says everything would have been fine if he wasn't wracked with guilt. Lucas says he wasn't about to let Sami die for a crime she didn't commit. Kate says they are lucky everyone thought he was just trying to save Will's mother, and that she got Roberto to confess to killing Franco. Lucas says they don't have anything to worry about because nobody can prove that Roberto didn't kill Franco, they are both safe.
