In Alistairs office at Crane Industries, Beth pushes Alistair away after he kisses her. She says she is flattered that he finds her attractive, but she came to warn him of Luis intentions. Alistair says he knows about Luis, but he is not worried, there is no way Senior Lo-Fitz can get into his company let alone his building. Meanwhile, an old man (Luis in disguise) shows up outside of Alistairs office, but is stopped by his assistant. She asks him what he is doing? Luis says he is here to apply for a job, but she says personal is in another part of the building. Alistair hears the commotion outside and and asks what is going on out there? His assistant says it is just a job applicant. She says he was looking for the applications. Alistair tells her to give him extra consideration given his eagerness to work, and then tells them to get lost because he's working on a "merger." They leave, and Beth tells Alistair that she should go because she doesnt want Luis knowing they are working together otherwise it will be all over for her. Alistair doesnt seem to be eager to let Beth leave. Beth tells him that he really should be worried about Luis, but Alistair says bigger man than Luis have tried to bring him down and have failed. Beth just worries that things could unravel, and if Sheridan thinks Martin is her baby again than she will insists on a blood test, and Luis will probably approve. Alistair tells Beth to relax. He says DNA tests can be altered. She says yeah, on Days of Our Lives they can! She says this is real life, you cant just go in and change a DNA test. Alistair says he can and he has! Beth asks whose test he altered? Alistair says a young man came to Harmony looking for his parents, but if he found out who they were it would be disastrous to his family. He says he had the tests changed to prevent the boy and his parents from learning the truth. Beth realizes this person must be a family member of Alistair's, and she cant believe he could do this to a member of his own family. How could he deny someone their birthright, or knowing their parents? Alistair says they just did it to Sheridan, Luis and their child! He says this man knowing who his parents were would be as disastrous as Sheridan and Lusi knowing the truth to her. Alistair says he would lie, cheat and still, and even commit murder if he has to in order to keep his family's secrets safe. Alistair assures Beth that if Sheridan ever tries to get a DNA test he will change them as well. Alistair dismisses Beth, but not before saying hell let her know when and where hed like her to perform next Meanwhile, Luis uses another persons name and social security number when filling out the job application, and he thinks everything is going smoothly. He says pretty soon hell get access to Alistairs office. Later he is told his application has been approved and he's been given a job as a janitor. Luis thanks the women very much, and they head downstairs to where Luis can pick up a badge and uniforms. They are narrowly missed by Beth as the elevator doors close. Back at Alistairs place, Alistair calls up security and makes sure Luis is never allowed in this building. He then moves his bookshelf and reveals a hidden safe. He puts a file into his safe, the file that Luis and Sheridan almost found in the Crane Archives that one day. He says Luis will never find this here, hell never get into this building much less this office. Later, Alistair heads into the hall and finds Luis mopping the floor. He calls out You there!
At the B&B Pilar tells Eve that she thinks Chad is her son, it all makes sense. She explains the clues to Eve, that Chad came to town looking for his parent, and that his mother was African-American and his father was white. Pilar says Chad must be her son with Julian. Eve explains that she ran extensive DNA tests on Chad and compared them to everyone in Harmony, including herself and Julian, but there was no match. Eve says she thought Chad might be her son at one time, but it is not so. Pilar says it is a good thing that Chad isnt her son because of Whitney and Chads relationship. Eve says Whitney never knew she could have been in love with her own half-brother. Eve explains how TC found her boys old baby booties that she had knitted, and how she had to lie and say the boy she had died. Eve explains that TC thought the boy was his and never suspected it wasn't. Eve says if Whitney found out Chad could possibly be her brother than she would never forgive her, but fortunately he is not. Pilar asks what if the DNA test results were wrong? She says that is not possible, she says if Chad was her son not only would her life be destroyed, so would her familys life. Later they talk about Pilars illness and what to do. Pilar says she doesnt want to tell her family, at least not yet. Eve says she will respect her decision, but she knows how hard it is to keep secrets from ones family.

After making love they talk about things, including Whitneys suspicions that her mother is having an affair with Julian, and what Theresa could be up to regarding her son. Chad tries to convince Whitney to just focus on being in his arms. Whitney says she is glad to be in his arms, and that he is the one thing her mom cant take from him.
At the mansion, Ethan tells Gwen that they cant adopt Theresas son. She asks why not, why cant they adopt a son they have already bonded with. Ethan says he can't hurt Theresa. Ethan also tells her that he is thinking about what is best for them, and Sheridans idea to have a surrogate is what is best for them. Ethan says he doesnt want to fight with her because he loves her. He says the last thing he wants is for Theresa to drive a wedge between them. HE says hes calling Eve to make an appointment with her right now. Elsewhere, Fox shows up to protect Theresa, who has found herself on the other end of Crane Securitys guns. Rebecca calls the police and asks them to please send someone over because someone has tried to kidnap her son.

Ethan asks Theresa what she was thinking? Rebecca says she wasnt thinking, and now she will pay the price. The cops show up and Rebecca demands Theresa be arrested for kidnapping. Theresa says this is her son! Ethan steps forward and says she was just visiting him, but Rebecca says she was going to kidnap the child! Fox tells Rebecca that she cant prove anything, but Rebecca says she can. Rebecca has a TV brought in and plays the evidence. She taped Theresa going into Little Ethans room, and her saying goodbye to Fox. All her plans were caught on tape! Rebecca says there is there proof that Theresa is a kidnapper. She also shows the cops the custody order giving her and Julian full custody. Rebecca says Theresa is a danger to this boy. Fox tells Rebecca that Theresa loves her son and would never hurt him. Rebecca says Jeffrey Dahmer loved having people to dinner, but it didnt mean he was a good host! Rebecca says Theresa is an unfit mother. Ethan tells Theresa that she should have waited, she shouldnt have done this. Theresa begs Ethan to help her, and he says hell see what he can do. Gwen is furious and says he just cant keep his promises when it comes to Theresa. She says so much for letting Theresa come between them! Gwen lashes out at Ethan about him going back on the promise he made on Sarahs coffin not to help Theresa. She says so much for Theresa not driving a wedge between us! Meanwhile, Rebecca continues to insist Theresa be arrested, but the cops say the court order says she only shares custody of the child with her husband. The cops ask Julian if he wants to press charges against Miss Lopez-Fitzgerald as well? Julian agrees with Rebecca, which Theresa knows he is only doing because of Rebecca. The cops ask Theresa to hand over the child. Theresa begs them not to do this. Rebecca says perhaps she needs to be explained the situation in Espanola! The cops ask her once again to hand over the boy. As this goes on, Ethan tells Gwen that this isnt right, but Gwen says Theresa brought this on herself. Ethan says this is Rebeccas doings, she pushed Theresa into doing this. Gwen says this latest drama only proves that Theresa is an unfit mother, and there is no way Theresa will ever get her parental rights back. Gwen says unless they adopt the boy than Julian and Rebecca will be his parents! The cops return the boy to Rebecca and then they arrest Theresa for attempted kidnapping! Fox tells his father that this is not right, but Julian says he has no choice but to go along with this. Fox says he had a choice. Ethan asks Fox how he could help Theresa do this?

again, and after this he will never consider restoring Theresas
parental rights. Woody says there is nothing they can do. Ethan asks
what if Rebecca dropped the charges, but Woody doesn't see that
happened. Ethan wonders what if someone else adopted Little Ethan and

At the Crane Mansion, Gwen reads a story to Little Ethan, who says he misses his mommy. Gwen says maybe hell feel better after a good night sleep. The nanny takes the boy upstairs, and Gwen rants to her mom about Ethan helping Theresas lawyer behind her back. Rebecca tells Gwen to calm down, she almost has everything she wants and she doesnt want to blow it. Gwen says Ethan promised her, and she threatened to leave him if he ever helped Theresa again. Rebecca says she cant do that when shes so close to finally getting the family she wants. Rebecca tells Gwen that she should be thrilled that Ethan has agreed to adopt Little Ethan. Gwen says she would be but she knows hes only doing this to help Theresa. Rebecca says they will take care of that, but for now they will get revenge on Theresa and Gwen will get the family she has wanted. Rebecca reminds Gwen that Ethan still blames Theresa for revealing that he was not Julians son, he has no idea that it was the two of them who sent the email to the tabloids. Rebecca turns around and finds Ethan standing behind her. Gwen asks how long he has been there? Ethan says he just walked in. Ethan thinks Gwen looks happy. Gwen says she was just telling her mom about their appointment with Eve. Gwen says they should get going, but Ethan says hed like to talk to her first. Ethan asks Rebecca to leave them and let them talk in private. Rebecca leaves the room, by listens in as Ethan tells Gwen that they should adopt Little Ethan right away. Gwen says she is glad he changed his mind, but she still wants to talk to Eve about surrogacy. Gwen says they could have a whole family very soon. They decide to go to see Eve, and Ethan says afterwards they need to go by the jail and tell Theresa that they are adopting her son. Gwen doesnt understand why. Ethan says Theresa deserves to hear the news from them, not from someone else. Rebecca signals to her daughter to agree to it, so Gwen does. Ethan and Gwen head off to see Eve, and Rebecca plans to go down to the station to tell Theresa that Ethan is going to adopt her child.
At the hospital, Eve can help but worry what if one of her daughters met a boy and it turned out to be their half-brother. Julian says the odds of that happening are astronomical. She says but not impossible, their son could come to Harmony and have a relationship with one of her daughters. She says the consequences would be nightmarish. Julian thinks he has failed his son by not standing up to Alistair from the very beginning, and he says he will not fail his son again. Eve asks Julian what about Little Ethan, he is his son too. Julian says if he doesnt go along with Rebecca than she will ruin her life. Eve says she feels guilty that Theresa is losing her child because of her. Julian says he will make sure that Little Ethan has everything he needs, and Julian says hell also continue to protect Eve. Julian says hes going to go see his father right now and demand he tell them where his son is. Julian takes off to go see his father.
Later, Eve meets with Gwen and Ethan to discuss surrogacy. As they are talking, adoption comes up and Gwen reveals that they are adopting Little Ethan. Eve is stunned, but Ethan says given Theresas problems shes not going to get custody back, and they will make better parents than Julian and Rebecca. Eve is hurt to hear that it isnt looking good for Theresa. As Ethan and Gwen talk about children growing up without loving and caring parents, and children getting pushed around in the foster system, she thinks about her own child. Things get worse when Gwen brings up how it would be hard for Little Ethan to be adopted not only because he is not an infant, but because he comes from a mixed race background. She says that makes it more difficult for people to adopt a child. Eve suddenly breaks down and says she is a horrible person. Gwen and Ethan ask if she is okay? Eve says one of her patients is going through what they are describing, and she feels for them. They apologize, as does Eve for breaking down. Eve says they should talk about surrogacy, and she tells Gwen that she will have to undergo hormone injections as a first step. She also gives them some brochures on surrogacy and the legal requirements. Gwen thinks this is so great and very soon they will be able to give Little Ethan a brother or sister. To himself, Ethan thinks that as soon as he can he will give Little Ethan back to Theresa. Later, Ethan and Gwen head off to the jail to tell Theresa the news.

Chad says it could happen, and once they thought they could be brother and sister. Whitney says that wasnt true, and neither is this. She says if this scenario was for real, what kind of horrible woman could do something like that to her own children.

Kay says no, and right now she is feeling like she has ruined her life forever.

Charity says she was looking into some fashion designing online, and when she tried to apply her designs to a website her outfit was rejected.

At the cannery, Kay returns to work where Dort and the others continue to tease and torment her. They tell her while she works away here, her man is probably off with some floozy. Kay says Miguel is not like that, and he doesn't have a girlfriend. Dort asks where his ex Charity is? Kay says she lives next door. Dort tells Kay that she has big trouble. Kay defends Miguel and says he wants nothing to do with Charity because she is a slut who throws herself at any man who comes along.
At the Bennet's, Charity is about to apply to design school with the cyber dress she made when Ivy walks in and says it is horrible! She apologizes and says it isn't that bad, but if she changed the fabric and colors it would work better. She shows Charity what she means, and Charity realizes Ivy is right. Ivy says this is stuff she will learn in school, but she does have the inventiveness. She thinks once Charity graduates from school she will help her get a job with some of the best designers in the business. Ivy says with Charity's talent and her connections they will make great partners. Charity thanks Ivy for helping her. Ivy says she knows what it is like to lose the man you love, she just wants to help her. Later, Miguel shows up with MAria, he dropped by to let the baby visit with Sam. Sam comes downstairs and spends time with her. Father Lonigan also drops by to check on Charity. He asks if she is still keeping her bargain with Death? Charity says she is. He tells her once again God does not work that way, he'd never let an innocent be struck down. Charity says she can't take that chance because if anything happened to that baby than Miguel would never forgive her. She goes in to see the baby, and Father Lonigan has a talk with Ivy. He tells Ivy that once she confided in him a lot, and he can sense something is bothering her. He asks her to unburden her soul and let him help her. She admits to Father Lonigan that she broke up Sam and Grace's marriage. She says she feels bad, but Grace is happy with David, and when you have a love like hers and Sam's isn't it worth doing anything for? Father Lonigan says no it isn't, and what she did was wrong. He tells her that she must confess to Sam to save her soul, but she says never! She says Sam can never know the truth. Father Lonigan says he cannot force her to tell, and this will remain between them as the confession is sacred. Meanwhile, Sam heads off to work, and Miguel and Charity are left alone with Maria. They look at one another and smile, but then Charity remembers she can't be with Miguel and pulls away.
In Alistair's office, Luis hides in the back of the closet as Sheridan opens the door. Sheridan is positive that Luis is inside. When she opens the door and doesn't see him, she is confused. Alistair tells her that he is very worried about her. They leave the office and have a talk. He thinks she needs to go home and get some rest. Sheridan says no, and she says she came here for a reason. She asks her father for a job to help her take her mind off her baby. HE gives her a job working on the charity fundraiser drive. She thanks him and is happy. He tells her to go home to her husband. Back in Alistair's office, Luis snoops around and tries to find what triggered Alistair's bookshelf to open. Before he finds the trigger he is caught by Alistair's secretary, Miss Sims. She tells him that she cleans this office and no one else, and if she catches him in here again he is fire. He thanks her and quickly heads off. As he is leaving he sees Sheridan. Sheridan senses Luis and calls out to him, but he runs off. Sheridan thinks perhaps her father is right and she does need to go home and rest.
Back at the station, Luis shows up and tells Hank of the progress he has made at Crane Industries. Back at Crane Industries, Alistair checks on the contents of his safe. HE is glad to see everything is safe, and he says Luis could never get in here. We see an envelope with Luis' photo on it, and we see a DVD labeled Sheridan. Alistair plays the DVD and we see Sheridan being given the electroshock treatments/torture. He says if Luis and Sheridan ever find out what really happened they will die!
April 2, 2004
We see a replay of Theresa going nuts after seeing Gwen comforting Little Ethan on the PC hookup. She says Gwen is not Little Ethans mother and she will not let her take him from her. Theresa has a horrible vision of the future. She goes to the mansion to see her boy, who is all grown up. (Little) Ethan tells her that she may have given birth to him, but Gwen is the only mother he knows and the only mother he wants to know! Theresa says she has been in prison, and it isnt her fault she hasn't been here for him. She says they took her from her. Ethan says it is too late now, he doesnt need her now. Ethan tells her to leave and slams the door in her face. Theresa hopes her nightmare doesnt come true, and she asks God not to let them take little Ethan away. Later, Woody shows up and he tells Theresa that he has arranged a little meeting between Theresa and the judge. Theresa is given a ray of hope, and she says she knows she can convince Judge Reilly to free her and give her her son back. Woody thinks Theresa should let him do the talking, and she needs to keep her emotions in check and show Reilly that she is more stable now. Woody says if she doesnt keep it together than he wont be able to help her.
At the mansion, Gwen is in a great mood, which everyone can see. Ethan says she is happy today. Gwen says how can she not be. She says they are adopting Little Ethan and she also has hope that they will be having their own child again. She says she can finally look at baby clothes and not burst into tears. She thinks all her dreams are going to come true. Rebecca comes in and is also in a good mood. Ethan decides to leave, and Rebecca hopes it isn't on her account. He says he has to go to the Courthouse to pick up a few things. After Ethan leaves, Rebecca tells Gwen that very soon Little Ethan will be hers, and Theresa will have lost. She says revenge is so sweet. The nurse arrives to give Gwen a hormone injection, and Gwen says this is one shot she doesnt mind getting. The nurse says that is good because shell be back tomorrow! The nurse tells Gwen that she really hopes this works out for her, and shell see her tomorrow. Gwen and Rebecca continue to plot Theresa's downfall. Gwen says she wants to give Theresa a dose of the pain she has given her. Rebecca says they are so close to destroying Theresa and she would hate for anything to go wrong. Later, Gwen gets a call about some potential surrogate candidates. Gwen says she will be here all morning so the agency should send them over. Rebecca continues to rant and rave about how Theresa will suffer, and the destruction of Theresa needs to be their number one priority. Later, Gwen has a huge buffet set up for the surrogates. She also has a checklist of qualities she is looking for. Rebecca shows up and wants to have some of the cookies, but Gwen says they are for the candidates. Gwen says she is taking this seriously, she needs to find the perfect candidate. Rebecca says she will help her, she is a very good judge of character. Rebecca says she will make sure her surrogate is from the proper blood line and pedigree. Gwen says nobody from her social circuit will be applying for this, most of them will be from the working class! Rebecca exclaims The horror! but she agrees to try and keep her feelings to herself. Rebecca cant help but worry this woman could turn out to be the Grace Bennett type. Gwen thinks Grace would be perfect, but Rebecca disagrees and says theyd all have morning sickness if she bakes them tomato soup cakes every day. The doorbell rings, and Gwen lets the first candidate in. The first candidate is a flake, who thinks Gwen doesnt like her at all, and she starts ranting about her therapist and what he is always telling her. The woman ends up running off, and Rebecca says this is going to be a long day! The next candidate demands to name the baby, and she wants to name him Elvis or her Pricilla. Gwen moves on to the next candidate, who seems very sane. The woman says her and her husband have been blessed with two kids, and the money she gets from this will help her husband cut back on his hours at work. Gwen asks the woman, Heather, if she would have a hard time giving this child up? Heather says no because the child would not be hers, and the joy in her and her husbands face would make it worth it to her. Gwen likes heather and hugs her. Gwen says Heather is perfect, but Rebecca thinks to herself that she is too perfect! After Heather leaves, Rebecca tells Gwen that anyone, even she would appear perfect after that parade of psychos that came before her. Gwen say she just feels closer than ever to reaching her dream, and she says he cant wait for Ethan to meet Heather. She says she will have Little Ethan and her very own baby. They begin to think about Theresas reaction to losing her child forever. Rebecca says eh wishes she could be there to see her crying.
Ethan heads to the courthouse to do some research. Eve stops by after getting Ethans message. Ethan tells Eve that he wanted her to know everything is going well with Gwen. He says Gwen is so happy, and he asks if this is going to work because he doesnt want to see her let down again. Eve says she sees no reason why surrogacy isnt a viable option for Gwen. Ethan says his main concern right now is making sure their surrogate doesnt decide to keep the baby after giving birth to it. Ethan says that is why he is here, he is doing research on how to protect them from having their child taken from them. He says he doesn't think Gwen would survive that happening. Eve points out that is exactly what they are doing to Theresa. Ethan says she is wrong, and he would never keep Theresas child from her. He says he still cares about her and would never do anything to hurt her. He tells Eve, in confidence, that as long as Julian and Rebecca have custody of Little Ethan than they can press kidnapping charges. However, he says if he adopts Little Ethan, he can drop the charges against her. Eve says what he is doing is generous and kind. Ethan says he doesnt want Theresa to know about this. Eve asks why? Ethan says he cant tell her for a lot of reasons. He says he is married and is trying to keep his marriage together. He says he loves Gwen, but she has endured heartache because of him. He says Theresa is also suffering because Rebecca blames Theresa for Sarahs death. Ethan says that is not right, and hes just trying to make everything right. Eve understands but she says sometimes people make mistakes and they pay for that mistake for the rest of their lives. She thinks what he is doing is a wonderful thing. He tells Ethan that he knows something is bothering her, and whatever it is, she should know that they all make mistakes. Eve thinks to herself that her mistakes have hurt so many.
MEanwhile, Theresa and Woody head to court, and she runs into Ethan at the courthouse. She lashes out at Ethan for being a traitor, and Eve tries to tell Theresa that this isnt what she thinks. Theresa slaps Ethan and says he is her enemy and she will not rest until she has made him suffer. Woody reminds Theresa while they are here, but Judge Reilly has seen everything and says this meeting is a waste of time as he has seen everything he needs to see. Reilly walks off, and Woody tells Theresa that it is over. Theresa says it cant be, she cant live without her son!
