At the courthouse, Ethan arrives and talks with the bailiff. Gwen thinks Ethan is too late, it is too late to help her. Meanwhile, Theresa is confident that Ethan was late because he still loves her and didnt want to defend Gwen. Ivy shows up soon, and she apologizes for being late as well. Ethan explains why he is late to the judge. Rebecca tells Ivy that Ethan was too late, he left Gwen hanging. Rebecca says she doesnt know whose side Ethan is on. Ivy is positive that Ethan wont abandon Gwen, and Ethan must be explaining to the judge why he was late. Meanwhile Theresa continues to believe that Ethan has chosen her and he is explaining this to the judge. The judge says that there is new evidence so she will revoke her ruling until all the evidence can be heard. Theresa cant believe this, and she thinks Ethan wouldnt do this to her. Gwen thanks Ethan for being here and for not deserting her after all. Ethan presents his evidence to the court. Ethan says Gwen is a woman of exemplary character, she has never committed a crime and has no history of violent behavior. He says however Gwen did stab Theresa twice and kidnapped her baby. Ethan says hes known Gwen for the majority of her life and shes never shown such violent behavior before. He says he has a study on the side affects of several drugs, which he submits as evidence. Ethan says the study shows that the mixing of the drugs can have serious side effects. Ethan says the night Gwen attacked Theresa she was given an injection to tranquilize her that mixed with two of her prescriptions, prescriptions included in the study he submitted as evidence, and he says the effects that could have resulted include mood swings, impaired judgment and a loss of reality. Ethan says when Gwen was given that injection it interacted with her previous medication, therefore her behavior was a result of the drug she was given. Theresa objects, and the judge calls order in the court. Theresa thinks that is all a lie and Gwen knew what she was doing. Meanwhile Gwen thanks Ethan and says she hates Theresa but even she cant believe shed kill her. Ethan says that is because she wasnt in her right mind, she was coming off the drugs while at the compound with Katherine and returned to thinking rationally. The DA says this evidence isnt conclusive and one can find a medical study to attest to anything nowadays. He asks that this evidence be thrown out. He says they just need more evidence then this, and the judge says the DA has a valid point. Ethan says he has more evidence, he has two hundred and fifty case histories to support his study and a witness. He calls Eve in to testify that Gwen attacked Theresa under the effects of the drugs. Eve is sworn in, and Theresa cant believe Eve is doing this. Ethan questions Eve about the prescriptions Gwen was on, and she admits she prescribed the other drugs to Gwen. However, she says she did not give Gwen the injection that night, the on-call doctor did. She says she would never have mixed the drugs because of the side effects. Ethan presents a statement from the on-call doctor who swears he didnt know Gwen was on the medication and would not have given her the shot if he had known. Eve testifies that Gwens actions were possibly a result of the interaction of the drugs in her system. When the DA tells Theresa they cant do anything at this point, Theresa goes off and begins yelling out that this is a farce and she calls Eve the expert witness a former drug addict, a tart and suspected serial killer. Whitney tells Theresa to stop this, but Theresa says this is about her child and family, which she is fighting for. Rebecca and Ivy cant believe Theresa is now attacking her best friends mother. Eve ends up leaving the court, and Whitney tells Theresa that she went too far this time. Whitney follows her mom out. Pilar asks Theresa how she could be so cruel ? Theresa says she cant lose this case. Outside the courtroom Whitney checks on her mom and she apologizes for what Theresa said. Eve says she knows Theresa is desperate, and Theresa only told the truth. Whitney says she is sorry. Eve says she doesnt want Whitney to regret her decisions the way she has regretted her own. Whitney says they have been through this. Eve says but she hasnt even seen her child. Whitney tells her mom that she has seen her baby, held him and even nursed him. Eve thinks Whitney has changed her mind and must be happy, but Whitney says no. She says nothing has changed, she never wants to see her baby again. Back in court, Ethan asks the judge in lieu of the new evidence he asks for the charges against Gwen be dismissed. He says furthermore, he also asks that full custody be given to him and his wife.

He asks how he ticked her off, but then remembers he called her a hooker. They get drinks and Ned apologizes for his remark and says he was just concentrating on the game. Fancy says she will forgive him and they should pretend they just met and start all over. Ned says okay, but he will pay her back. They begin making observations about one another, and Ned tells her what she did was a very generous gesture. She says it was a gift from her father and his secretary bought it for her as usual. She talks about how his father has no idea of any of his kids birthdays, and her whole family are like strangers to her. Ned says that sounds familiar. He says still he doesnt want her paying his debts, so he will still repay her. She says he can repay her right now, and they kiss. They are interrupted by another phone call, and Ned notices the number calling Fancy. He says isnt that the area code for Harmony? She says yes, does he know someone there. He says he does, and Fancy says small world.
At the Wallace house, Edna is packing up the booze and tells Beth that they have to move it. Edna says Luis and Sheridan know they were at the mansion so they have to get out. Beth asks how they know? Edna says Eve Russell saw them leaving the mansion, and she says it will take Luis all of five seconds to realize everything Sheridan has said is right. Beth says just because Eve saw them leaving doesnt mean she told anyone. Edna thinks she will tell though and they need to get out of Harmony before they are done for. Beth tries to call Alistair for help, but hes not answering. Edna thinks Alistair wont help them, and Beth says if he wont then shell take him down with them. Edna says hush, he could have this place bugged. Edna ends up telling Beth that Alistair warned her what would happen if anyone figured out she was Alistairs daughter. Edna says her connection to Alistair has been discovered so there is nothing left to do but hit the road. Beth says there is something she can do. Edna says not murder again. Beth says shes not going to kill anyone, she has a better idea. Beth calls Luis up.
At the cottage, Sheridan tells Luis that she wants to go over and confront Beth. Luis says Beth may be hiding something and they should try and find out, but they have no proof. Sheridan says Eve and the maid both told them that Beth and Mrs. Wallace were at the mansion, so obviously Alistair helped Beth steal her baby. Luis says they still have no proof. Sheridan says maybe not now, but once they get to Beths she will make Beth admit that she kidnapped and stole her baby. Luis tells Sheridan that they need to take this one step at a time. He tells Sheridan to stay here and let him talk to Beth. Sheridan says no, but Luis says Beth is already upset with her. Luis says if she goes accusing Beth again then shell go on the defense and they wont get any answers. Luis says if Beth did kidnap their baby then she will be punished. Sheridan agrees to let Luis go, but she tells him not to let Beth talk her way out of this. As Luis is about to leave he gets a call from Beth. Beth tells him that she has something to tell him and it is important. She asks him to come over as she has a confession to make. Beth says she has done something horrible to him and Sheridan.

In her head, Kay tells herself she is to blame and not her father. Kay tries to tell her dad that he is not to blame. She says mom left and he turned to Ivy for comfort, nobody can hold that against him. Sam says Jessica does. Jessica eavesdrops on them, and Sam says he was selfish to think about himself before thinking about the two of them. He says no wonder Jessica is angry at him. Kay says dont kid himself, Jessica is mad at mom for deserting them and picking David over all of them. Kay says Jessica is just hurt and scared. Kay says you start to wonder how much youre worth when your own mother didnt love you enough to stay. Kay tells herself or how much youre worth when you didnt love your mother enough to make her stay. Sam asks Kay if that is how she feels, that she isnt worthy enough?

She asks Luis how he can believe every thing Beth tells her no matter what. She says he believes Beth over her every time. Sheridan says her word is never good enough for him, so what does that say about their relationship? She says there is such distrust between them. Luis says it isnt that he distrusts her. Sheridan says no, its that he doesnt believe her. She says he cant have it both ways, he always takes Beths word over hers. She says she knows without a shadow of a doubt that Marty is her son, but he fights her at every turn instead of supporting her. Luis says he does support her, he even arranged for the DNA test. He says she has not one scrap of proof to back up what she says, and no court will believe her. Sheridan says she isnt talking about a court or a judge. She says what she doesnt understand is that he is asking for proof without giving her the benefit of the doubt. She says he should believe her out of trust, faith and love. Sheridan continues to believe that Beth has been working with Alistair. Luis says then why did Beth confess, she didnt have to because she didnt know they suspected she was working with Alistair. Sheridan says bull, she knew and she confessed to cover her tracks. Luis says the only solid proof they have is the DNA tests, and those tests say Marty is not their son. Sheridan says her heart tells her that Marty is her son, and she knows Marty is the one she carried and gave birth to. She says it was his face she memorized, a mother knows so she doesnt need proof.

She stops him and says shes been thinking about them. He says me too. She says shes been remembering their past lives together. Luis says this life is the one he cares about.

Gwen says she is not asking it to be excused, but she knows the pain of losing a child. She says she thinks Theresa has suffered enough, so for all of them and for her please just let it go. Gwen says they have to move on with their lives, and she wont press charges against her. The judge says this is a wonderful gesture on her part given Theresa wanted the judge to throw the book at her. Gwen says everything worked out, so please can they let it go. Ethan goes to Gwen and is proud of her. The judge agrees to let Theresa go, and she tells Theresa that she is lucky that Mrs Winthrop has such a big heart. The judge says her violent outburst confirms her decision to give custody to Gwen and Ethan. She says it will take a great deal of effort on Theresas part not to make this temporary custody permanent. She asks Theresa if that is clear, and Theresa says yes. The judge says court dismissed. Later Theresa tells Gwen that Jane will never be her daughter. Ethan tells Pilar to restrain her daughter, but Theresa says she doesnt have a scalpel so Gwen will be okay. Theresa asks Ethan how he could do this to her. She says she had every right to press charges against Gwen. Ethan says he is not doing this to punish her, he is doing this for the best interest of his daughter. Pillar tells Ethan he should be ashamed of himself.

The DA suggests Theresa stop this or the judge wont give her custody. Rebecca chimes in and says she thinks shell talk to Julian about getting custody of Little Ethan because she worries about that boy living in that shack. Pilar tells her to shut up or shell deal with her. Rebecca tells the bailiff if he heard that? Rebecca gloats to Theresa and says Gwen is free, and she is free to raise her daughter. She tells Theresa not to worry, theyll show Jane her mug shot from time to time so she knows how lucky she is not to grow up with the tacky queen of mean as her mamacita. Theresa then launches into an attack on Rebecca! Pilar pulls Theresa away and says Rebecca isnt worth it, she could have her arrested and Theresa should not give her the satisfaction. Rebecca says not to worry, she is perfectly satisfied with the events of today. Pilar tells Theresa they should just leave. Gwen tells Theresa to get Janes things together and theyll be over to get her. Theresa asks Ethan who he is? How could he do this when he saw how upset she was when she lost Little Ethan and when Gwen kidnapped Jane. Theresa says this is far from over and the only way theyll get custody of Jane is over her dead body. Theresa storms out, and Gwen tells Ethan to remember what is best for Jane, and they are what is best for her.
May 19, 2005
At the Lopez-Fitzgeralds, Theresa can't bear the thought of giving Jane up, and she says she will kill Gwen if she tries to take her daughter. Pilar tells her not to say such horrible things. Theresa says it is true, she cannot bear to lose her children as they are her life. She says she might as well just die or have gone to jail for attacking Gwen in court. Pilar tells her that she is being selfish as Little Ethan still needs her. Pilar says the custody isn't permanent and she must use this time to focus on making herself look worthy of having her child. Theresa asks why Gwen doesn't have to prove herself worthy? Pilar tells Theresa that she hates to tell Theresa this, but she brought this on herself. She says how many times did Ethan ask her to drop this feud, and how many times did he say he would fight her for Jane. Pilar says Theresa backed him into a corner. Theresa says it doesn't matter what she does now, she can't get a fair trial in this town. She says if Rebecca and Gwen want to take Jane they will buy off the judge. Theresa continues to say they won't get her children, she won't let them have them.
At the Mansion, everyone comes home, and Rebecca and Ivy go right for the champagne to celebrate Theresa's downfall. Gwen asks Ethan if he wants to celebrate, but he says he can't. She knows he is feeling guilty about taking Jane from Theresa. Ethan says he is glad the charges against her were dropped, and he is proud of her gesture towards Theresa, but he still can't help but feel for Theresa. He says she is a good mother, but Gwen says she is a liar and a manipulator and Jane is better off with them. Gwen wonders why he always feels for Theresa. Later, Ivy comes out to talk to Ethan, and he admits to his mother that he still loves Theresa. She asks if he is going to leave Gwen, but Ethan says of course not. He says he loves Gwen and he is her husband and will remain faithful. They go out to the patio to talk. Ivy doesn't understand how Ethan can still have feelings for her, but he says he does. He says he knows if the situations were reversed today that Theresa would not have spared Gwen and let her go free. Still, he says he loves Theresa and the fact is she didn't manipulate him into loving her, he fell head first in love with her on his own. Ivy suggests he just get away from her, if he is away with Gwen then in time his feelings for Theresa will go away. Ethan doesn't think so, and he uses Ivy and Sam as an example. He says Ivy's true love will always be Sam and God help him, but Theresa will always be his true love.
