Though Kim orders her to stay put and do as the doctors say, Lucinda announces that she is going to St. Paul to be with her grandson but Kim convinces her otherwise. In front of Jennifer Hal asks Paul why he would conspire with the baby's birth mother. Paul insists he was doing a favor for Will and offered his help to Gwen as long as she took her baby and left town. He then puts the blame on Hal for failing to help Will but Hal calls him a liar and a thief, vowing to find out why he paid Gwen's legal fees. Jennifer starts to doubt Paul after Hal leaves and Paul nervously tries to convince her he's only trying to help her. Though Meg insists that she did all she could but could not get past Gwen's mother, Dusty pressures her to go back and get the DNA they need, asking her to do it for him. Falling for Dusty's words, Meg gets her way when she threatens to call the sheriff to force her in for "family services." Gwen invites her in and Meg takes the sample she needs. Feeling bad about how she reacted to B.J.'s gift, Katie dons the cheerleader outfit and surprises him at Java. Mike can't take his eyes off her and, in spite of B.J.'s efforts to force him back to work, Mike takes Katie home. Afraid of B.J. when he threatens her to keep his identity a secret, Maddie complains to Henry who decides it's time to end this. He hands B.J. his keys and offers his resignation, warning that he's no longer bound to keep his secret about Katie's past. B.J. calms down and cons Henry into staying on as his assistant by claiming that he likes Maddie and has big plans for her. After B.J. makes a call to "get rid of" Maddie, Kim then calls Maddie and fires her.
