Krystal also explains that she has been stressed out-JR assumes the stress comes from Adam and Jamie and doesn't realize he is the one who stresses her out. Krystal bluntly asks him if he truly loves Babe and JR says yes, he does. Krystal bluntly tells him that Babe is also stressed out about her marriage; she is scared of losing JR. When JR reassures Krystal he isn't going to leave Babe, she believes him and asks him to tell Babe that as well. Babe wakes up to a smiling JR beside her. JR surprises her and tells her he has booked a belated honeymoon Caribbean cruise for them! JR even orders a special Caribbean lunch for them to celebrate!

Jamie makes a big announcement to Brooke and Tad at Tad's home. He tells them that he broke into Joe's office, looked up Babe's medical records, and can prove he may be the father of her child. Tad and Brooke get upset that Jamie broke into his grandfather's office. Jamie fires back at Tad, bringing up that he destroyed Babe's medical papers as well. Tad tells him he was trying to prevent Adam from stealing them and what he did is completely different that what Jamie did. Jamie says he needs all the information he can give Jackson to get the court ordered paternity test. Feeling defensive and alone, he tells his parents that if they don't support him, they can get out of his life forever! When Brooke tells him about the risks associated with the paternity test before the baby is born, Jamie seems concerned. Krystal barges in, blabs about Jamie's frequent visits, and threatens him if he interferes with Babe's life. Jamie leaves and of course, heads over to see Babe.

As soon as JR leaves, Jamie appears from the secret doorway. Babe tells him to get out, but Jamie insists on talking to her about the paternity test. Babe thinks that Jamie is there to bug her to take one and out of tiredness from fighting, she gives in. Jamie tells her he doesn't want her to take the test because it might hurt the baby. Babe is relieved, but gets angry when Jamie says he will get the test done, but only after the baby is born. He also tells Babe that he knows she lied about her due date because he saw the medical records. Babe gets upset and runs off, right as JR returns and another face-off between the two brothers begins!

Joe advises Maria to stop thinking like a wife and start thinking like a doctor. When Maria and Joe go outside the room, David arrives and Maria tells Joe that she wants David present in the OR. Joe is hesitant, but after Maria pleads with Joe, he pulls some strings and allows David to be present in the OR. David asks Maria if she really wants him to operate on Edmund, considering their past. Maria tells him that after what he did to her family, he owes her. If he saves Edmund, she will consider that debt paid in full. Maria says a heartfelt good-bye to Edmund before he goes to surgery and waits outside. Juan Pablo sees her and asks how Edmund is doing. At first, she explodes and then nicely tells him that Edmund is in critical condition. She apologizes to Juan Pablo for blaming Edmund's injury on him. She realizes that it is not Juan Pablo's fault Edmund got hurt; Edmund knew what he was getting himself into.

When Brooke and Tad hear about Edmund from Joe, Brooke rushes to the hospital to offer her condolences to Maria. David walks out of the OR, Maria flashes back to her nightmare where she is alive and Edmund says, "I'm dead." When David gets closer, she whispers, "Edmund's dead?"

Helen runs into a problem and tells Bianca that because of the way the baby is positioned, it would be extremely risky and harmful to proceed any further.
