Her brother Chad made up the same scheme and it blew up in his face. What will he do when he gets “sicker?” Sami knows Lucas will think of something. Kristen doesn’t have that kind of faith in him. Sami says that’s why he’s got her. “You have sent a puppy dog to do a man’s job.”
At Titan, Nicole tries to work but thinks back to how rude she was to Ava when she learned that Rafe kissed her friend. Brady asks where her head is. He hopes she’s not trying to find another way to push him and Chloe together. Nicole doesn’t want him to be with “that murdering nutjob.” Nic says, “One day, one day her mask is just going to fall off. You see what I did there?” Brady’s pissed. “You don’t even know what backing off or budding out means.” Nic apologizes. Chloe arrives and asks Brady for the next few days off. A friend of hers needs her help. Brady says it’s fine. He needs to go see Rachel. Before he does, Chloe gives him a birthday gift for her. Nicole tells Brady, “It’s very thoughtful of her, isn’t it, Brady?” Once he’s gone, Nicole tells her about Rafe and Ava’s kiss and how she told Ava she didn’t see it working out for them. Nicole admits, “She thinks I want Rafe for myself.” Chloe asks if she’s right. Nicole reminds Chloe she’s married. Chloe didn’t mean to offend her but she didn’t answer the question.

In the hospital, Chad tells Abigail that Gwen lost the baby. Abigail’s so sorry. Gwen lies that Abby pushed her down the stairs. “You killed our baby.” Abigail denies it vehemently. She told Gwen to leave. Gwen makes up how things went down on the stairs and tells Abigail she always gets what she wants. “You are a murder!” She says. Chad tells Abby to go. “She’s losing it.” Chad says they’ll talk about it later. She goes and tells Jack that Gwen lost the baby and is blaming her. Jack’s face falls. Abby needs her father to tell her he believes she didn’t throw Gwen down the stairs. Instead, Jack says he needs to see Gwen. Back in her room, Gwen assumes Chad’s on Abby’s side. Chad thinks she’s upset and just got horrible news. Gwen knows this is an answer to Chad’s prayers. Chad claims that’s not true. He feels horrible about the baby and is sorry she’s in pain. He wasn’t happy when she told him the news and he hates the fact that she tricked him. They didn’t decide to have a baby. He’s sorry he didn’t react how she wanted him to when she told him about the baby, but she can’t deny that there was a good reason behind it. He doesn’t want her to be alone and asks who he can get for her since he’s not the right person to be there for her. She tells him there is nobody. It’s her own fault. Chad tries to say, “That’s not…” Gwen tells him not to tell her things he thinks she wants to hear. She hasn’t forgotten what she did to the Deveraux family. She thought this baby would be her way out of that. If she could love and care for somebody else and not just think about her, maybe she could change. She thought being a good mother would erase the past. Chad thinks she’d have been a good mother. Jack appears and Chad goes. Gwen cries to Jack and he hugs her close. Chad goes to Abigail. He believes she didn’t push Gwen but she knew she was pregnant. Why was she fighting with her at the top of the stairs? Abs asks if he’s calling this her fault. He says nothing and walks away.
