Sam has a dream that she’s holding her healthy baby, talking to him and wakes up with a start. Jason assures her all will be okay, but she wants to know how it will be since she just lost her baby.  Sam doesn’t understand why John didn’t come back to get her and just left them there.  Jason doesn’t tell her the truth. 

Todd has a dream that he tells Tea the truth that her baby is dead and she screams at him.  No really, she screamed.  Todd wakes up and Tea wonders why he seems upset.  Steve shows up and says they can be discharged today, but that the baby’s hemoglobin is low and will need to be rechecked in a couple of day.  He says it may be an indication of a genetic condition that runs in families. 

Alexis isn’t happy with the camera crews in the house, but Kristina insists they stay and tape everything. Molly gets a text from Jason that Sam’s in the hospital.  When Alexis calls back, she’s shocked to hear what happened to Sam.  Kristina jokingly asks who Jason killed now and Alexis tells her that Sam’s baby died.  Kristina gets angry with the camera crew and tells them to turn off their cameras. 

Matt leaves Maxie a letter, removes his ring and leaves.  After he’s gone, Maxie wakes and reads the letter, which says that Matt is going to turn himself in and Maxie takes off after him. 

Heather stops by the PCPD to see Luke, but Dante says they aren’t allowed visitors and explains that Luke and Tracy were arrested together.  Heather asks how an arrest can be made without a dead body, which Dante questions.  Heather puts the blame on Tracy, saying she killed Anthony and that Luke is not to blame.  She insists on seeing Luke, but Dante tells her to go home. Matt arrives, and tells Dante that he needs to confess to killing Lisa. 

Olivia shows up at Jake’s asking the bartender if he saw Heather there the night before.  The bartender doesn’t remember her, but says Spinelli spent the night.  Olivia is surprised that Spinelli tied one on, but Spin says the woman he loves married someone else.  Olivia asks if he saw Heather, but he doesn’t remember.  She says she thinks Heather is hiding something and wants Spin to use his PI skills to help her find out what.  

Olivia tells Spinelli she doesn’t trust Heather, that she was lying about coming to the bar and she left Olivia’s car covered in mud.  Olivia wants to be ready for Steve’s mom, just in case.  Heather shows up wondering what they’re talking about and mentions the bartender.  Olivia says the bartender doesn’t seem to remember her and Heather asks if Olivia is calling her a liar. Olivia deflects and Heather leaves.  Spinelli agrees that something is off and he’ll help Olivia figure out what it is.

Jason says he’s sorry that Sam lost her son.  Alexis questions the “her” son and if Jason is truly sorry Sam’s baby didn’t survive.  She knows he wasn’t going to accept Franco’s baby and feels if Jason had been more compassionate towards Sam, maybe she wouldn’t have been in  a motel giving birth and Alexis would have her grandson now.
