At the hospital, Belle, Phillip, Shawn and Mimi wait for news about their fertilization, Shawn and Phillip have just donated their samples, the gloved hand has switched Belle and Mimi's eggs in the lab. Mimi is worrying, she doesn't think this will work out for her, she thinks it will be the same as last time. Shawn tries to keep her positive. Meanwhile, Phillip too is worried about the outcome. With his slow sperm mobility there is no guarantee. Belle says the doctor thinks there is hope and he wouldn't say that if there wasn't. Phillip thinks he'd say anything to keep the investors family happy. They talk to the doctor, he believes the process he's developed will work for them. Belle tells Phillip if it is a success they can try again, they can still have that big family. Belle tells Phillip that she loves him, he says he loves her too. They hug, and Belle hopes this works for Mimi as a well, she so wants to give Shawn a child. Mimi overhears and says Shawn has a child, the problem is none of them know it.
Dr. Janes goes into the lab. He tells the lab technician NOT to screw this up, he does not want his funding wrecked because of a mishap with these cases. The lab tech says he will triple check all the labels, nothing will go wrong. The gloved hand spies, he or she remembers switching the labels. The hang clenches his fist and shakes it to celebrate what he or she has done.
Hope has arrived to have her ultrasound. Bo is there, as are Patrick and Billie (in the background). Bo is positive this baby is his. Hope asks how he knows? He just feels it, he feels this is a gift to them, a sign they are meant to be together. Hope says it could just as easily be Patrick's. Meanwhile, Patrick talks to Billie about the baby. Bonnie, who is volunteering, overhears and is thrilled, one more family member is going to get their piece of the Horton pie. Patrick says the baby could be Bo's. Shawn and Mimi overhear at this point, Shawn realizes his mother is pregnant and is furious. He takes off. Bonnie talks to Mimi and Patrick about how they've both landed into the richest families in town. They don't want to hear it, all of her scheming has never gotten them a thing. She tells them to go for the gold, she raised them better. Later Bonnie encourages Billie to do the same, if the baby is Patrick's then she'll get Bo. She says hold onto him and don't let him or his piece of the Kiriakis' fortune go.
Shawn finds his mom talking to Bo. He's furious, he tells his father that this is all his fault and if he thinks this baby is going to bring them back together then forget it. Hope asks to speak with Shawn alone, so Bo goes and talks to Billie. Bo is worried, this baby just has to be his. He says he's lost Zack and Shawn, he can't lose Hope to. Meanwhile, Shawn tells Hope that she is in this situation because of his dad and his lies. Hope tells Shawn he can't stay angry at his father, he has to try and forgive him. Shawn asks his mom if she's saying she's forgiven him? Suddenly the doctor comes in with news, it's not good. Bo and Patrick rush in, Hope asks if something is wrong with the baby? The doctor says no, the ultrasound equipment. She says it's broke and probably won't be fixed till after the holiday. She says she's sorry, she'll have to come back. Hope asks Patrick to walk her to her car. They leave, and Shawn says mom made her choice just like he made his. Later Bo tells Billie the baby just has to be his. Billie asks what if it isn't? He says he won't lose Hope to Patrick, he'll do whatever it takes to make sure of that.
On the pier, Austin runs into Carrie, who was daydreaming about marrying him and not Lucas. They have a heart to heart. Austin feels it is the two of them that should be together, they are one another's true loves. He thinks if she wasn't pregnant she wouldn't be marrying Lucas. She reminds him they were engaged before she knew. She says this is how it has to be, they can't play the what if game. He says they love each other deeply, there is no know if. Carrie says it doesn't matter, they can never be together. He asks why not? She flashes back to Lexie's big old genetic test lie. Austin says she owes him the truth, why can't they be together? Carrie cries and says she does owe him, she'll tell him why.

She was crying because of the fireworks, Steve calmed her down. After the flashback, Steve says something about how he got the baby to stop crying. Kayla thinks he remembers and hugs him. He says he didnt remember, he guessed because she said he had a way with the baby.
