Sam wonders why Jason isn’t at the trial. Jason tells her he didn’t want to miss the check up and wanted to support her. Kelly shows up, wondering why Sam needed to see her. Jason mentions a check up, which confuses Kelly. She quickly covers and admits her office made a scheduling error, but she’ll see them now. When Jason leaves them alone, Sam tells Kelly she needs to do another DNA test with Franco’s sample. She explains about the boys being twins and that Jason doesn’t know the truth yet. Kelly complains that this is all very stressful for Sam, but promises to have the results the following day.

With Jason back in the room, Kelly does a sonogram. She asks if they want to know the gender. Jason wants to be surprised. Jason heads off to the trial. Sam is sure this will destroy him and hopes Jason turns out to be the father. Kelly says she’ll know tomorrow.

Steve and Heather end up at Kelly’s for lunch. Luke and Anna also show up. Heather insists they join them, because she has unfinished business with Luke. Heather claims that she didn’t mean to upset them. She knows they’re just friends, since Anna isn’t Luke’s type, and that she wants to make it up to them.

Olivia seeks out Ewen’s advice about Steven’s mother and explains her history. Ewen offers to give a second opinion, but both Steve and Heather would have to agree to it. Olivia calls Steve. When he leaves the room, Heather spills her drink on Anna. Anna is forced to wash up, leaving Luke alone with Heather. Heather wants them to focus on their future, but Luke says they have no future. Steve agrees that Heather should be brought in for evaluation with Ewen. He convinces his mother to go to the hospital with him. When Anna comes back she and Luke joke about the crazy that is Heather and Tracy sees them being close.

At the hospital, Steve tells his mother to stay put and not wander off. Heather reassures him that she will do everything to earn his trust. Ewen tells Steve that it’s a good idea to get a second opinion. Steve gives him his mother’s file. Heather runs into Sam in the hall.

NOTE: Today was the beginning of Sonny’s trial, and since it consisted of a lot of dialogue, I found it easier to divide the episode into non trial, followed by, trial recap. It’s doesn’t follow the chronological line of the episode, but it makes for a cleaner recap.
