Melinda tells her to take a breath and figure out what they need to do first. Sloan questions what they are figuring out.

Leo explains to Jada and Rafe that he and Dimitri got in to a car accident with Nicole and there was no cell service to call an ambulance. Rafe realizes that’s why Nicole didn’t get in touch with EJ. Leo adds that Nicole went in to labor and he delivered her baby which is why they should be cutting them some slack. Jada asks where Nicole and her baby are now. Leo responds that last he knew, Nicole was still at the crash site. Rafe questions leaving her and the baby there alone. Leo clarifies that Eric showed up, so he left her with him. Jada asks about the baby. Leo mentions that Nicole was concerned because the baby was premature. Rafe figures Eric will take care of them but Leo says he doesn’t have to because Dimitri took the baby to the hospital before he left, so he believes Dimitri is still there now looking after the baby..
Sloan tells Melinda that she can’t seriously be thinking about her keeping Nicole’s baby. Melinda asks why not. Sloan says she must be joking but realizes Melinda is serious. Melinda calls it a sign that Dimitri showed up with that baby right after her adoption fell through. Melinda points out that if the adoption went as planned, she would be presenting Eric with a baby right now and this baby is Eric’s actual son. Sloan argues that it’s Eric and Nicole’s son, not her son. Melinda points out that they are the only ones who know that. Sloan brings up Dimitri and that he will remember leaving the baby with them. Melinda reminds her that Dimitri is desperate to skip town with Leo. Melinda declares that Dimitri and Leo are leaving Salem for good, so if Sloan decides to keep the baby and raise him with Eric, no one will ever be the wiser..
Paulina asks Stefan how he and Gabi cost EJ his old job. Stefan doesn’t want to get in to the particulars and knows how incredible it all sounds, but insists that EJ is trying to railroad Gabi by denying her bond and having her sent to prison while awaiting trial. Stefan questions what kind of court system Paulina is allowing in this town. Paulina rejects his implication. Stefan apologizes for questioning his leadership but he just wants Gabi to get a fair shake and he sincerely doubts that can happen while EJ is in office. Paulina appreciates what he’s going through and relates but argues that if she intervenes, it could be looked at as the mayor getting involved in a murder investigation to aid her police commissioner’s sister. Stefan asks if she won’t help out Gabi because she’s afraid of how it will make her look politically. Paulina responds that she’s sorry but her hands are tied.
Rafe finishes a phone call and tells Jada that there’s unfortunately no sign of her car yet and they have no way to track it. Jada figures Dimitri probably ditched it and hopes that they have better luck finding Nicole and her baby. Leo assures that Nicole and the baby have to be okay. Rafe says for he and Dimitri’s sake, they better be. Leo calls the baby the cutest human he’s ever seen and asks if he can make his one phone call now. Jada tells him to make it count as she and Rafe exit the room. Leo then calls Dimitri, who says he was so worried and asks where the hell he is. Leo reveals that he got himself arrested.
Tate tells Holly that he could be totally wrong, but he kind of felt like they were going to kiss. Holly asks if he’s seriously thinking about trying to get some while her pregnant mother is missing. Holly complains that she thought he was trying to comfort her as a friend. Tate apologizes and tries to explain. Holly shouts that she heard he was some wannabe player but calls this beyond gross. Tate tells her that she doesn’t understand but Holly tells him to leave now.
EJ questions what the hell they are still doing here if Dimitri took the baby to the hospital. Eric stops EJ and says they can’t move Nicole because she could still have internal injuries. Nicole says she doesn’t give a damn as she needs to get to her baby and she feels fine. EJ thanks Eric for waiting with her but says he can take it from here. EJ tells Eric to go home and look after his wife while he attends to his. EJ then helps Nicole up.
Melinda argues that Sloan wanted to give Eric a son and here he is. Sloan points out the flaw in her plan is that Dimitri told Nicole that he was going to take her son to the hospital, so she’s going to be looking for him with EJ’s help. Melinda asks what if there’s no baby for the DiMeras to find and suggests saying Dimitri took the baby to the ER but it didn’t survive. Melinda goes over how Nicole’s baby was born premature after a horrendous accident and Nicole has a long history of not being able to carry a baby to term, so this could be another in the long list of maternal tragedies for Nicole. Sloan admits she can’t stand Nicole but says she wouldn’t wish that on her worst enemy, so she doesn’t think she could do that even to Nicole. Melinda tells Sloan to stop thinking about Nicole and to think about the baby. Melinda asks if Sloan really wants Eric’s baby to be raised by EJ DiMera, who she calls a monster. Sloan asks how they would pull something like this off. Melinda reminds her of the money they were going to use to fund her private adoption and says she’ll use it to pay off a shady doctor to say Nicole’s baby died while he checks the baby out to make sure he’s okay. Sloan asks if she just happens to have a corrupt doctor on speed dial. Melinda brings up a guy that Sloan defended for insurance fraud that she prosecuted. Melinda says Sloan defended him brilliantly so he got off with a slap on the wrist and even maintained his doctor’s license at the hospital. Melinda thinks he would be thrilled to provide something unorthodox, complete with a death certificate for Nicole’s baby and a couple days later, she’ll show back up with Sloan’s adopted baby. Sloan questions her just coming up with all that. Melinda responds that she does her best thinking under pressure. Melinda declares that she promised Sloan a baby and she doesn’t renege on promises, especially not to one of the only friends she has in the world. Sloan asks if she really thinks they can get away with this. Melinda states that she knows they can and calls it the miracle that Sloan has been waiting for, so she just has to decide if she wants to receive it or not.
Tate repeats to Holly that he’s really sorry and says he hopes her mom is okay as he then exits the DiMera Mansion.
Paulina tells Stefan goodnight but Stefan stops her and says he’s not done talking to her. Paulina warns him to remove his hand from her arm, so he does and apologizes. Stefan says he’s just making sure there’s nothing else he can do to help change her position like a sizable donation to her next campaign. Paulina questions if he’s trying to bribe a public official. Stefan says he’s trying to get her to see reason. Paulina decides that she will act like this conversation never happened. Stefan warns that she’s making a mistake that she might live to regret. Paulina asks if he’s going from bribery to threats and remarks that he really is a DiMera. Stefan responds that so is EJ and unfortunately for her, she just backed the wrong DiMera. Stefan then storms off.
EJ joins Nicole in her hospital room. She asks if he found out anything. EJ says he’s afraid not as he checked the ER and there’s been no sign of Dimitri or their baby. Nicole questions where they can be. EJ promises they will find out where that bastard has taken their baby and he will soon be in her arms. EJ hugs Nicole as she cries.
Dimitri questions Leo getting arrested and says this is very bad. Dimitri adds that the submarine is departing any minute. Leo tells him to save himself which he questions. Leo tells Dimitri that he has to go without him.
Eric goes home. Sloan hugs him and says she’s so glad he’s home. Eric apologizes for being late and says he got tied up. Sloan says it’s okay and asks if he saw his dad. Eric tells her that a lot has happened. Sloan says he can tell her about his day later but she wants to share her amazing news. Sloan informs Eric that she heard back from Melinda and their baby boy was born tonight.
Melinda holds Nicole’s baby with her and says all will be fine because Sloan made the right decision so the baby will be home with his new mom and dad very soon.
