Plus, they get to see the baby at the ultrasound. They may wait to find out the gender until Chance returns. Summer appears and Abby says hello. She’s cagey and they insist she stays and visit. She sits and tells them she’s worried for her friend. She tells them that her friend found out he’s a father from an affair.

Nina wonders if she has an ulterior motive. Summer guesses she might be right but Abby doesn’t think she has to be a villain. Her mom lied about her birth and didn’t do it out of cruelty.

If the man had feelings for the woman, co-parently could bring up old feelings for the man.
