"Heartbroken and crying, Julia tells Ryan that she can't have a baby. Ryan lends a sympathetic ear as Julia pours her heart out, telling him about her dreams of becoming a mother. When Ryan learns that Dr. Madden is the doctor who told Julia that she can't have children, he becomes concerned. He tells Julia about his latest stunt, ambushing Kendall with a couple who is interested in adopting their baby. Julia is surprised but doesn't see what that has to do with her situation. Ryan explains that Dr. Madden isn't to be trusted and urges Julia to get a second opinion. Julia is reluctant. She trusts Dr. Madden's diagnosis and feels that he has nothing to gain by telling her that she is unable to have children but she promises Ryan that she will see another doctor to get a second opinion.

Kendall demands that Dr. Madden hand over her medical records so that she can find another OB. Dr. Madden is reluctant and asks Kendall if Ryan has anything to do with her decision to suddenly change doctors. Kendall explains that her decision was made when she came in for a regular checkup and ended up meeting prospective parents interested in adopting her child. She tells Dr. Madden that she hasn't decided what she's going to do yet but that Ryan is already in love with their child and wants to raise him. Greg is surprised at the new turn of events and asks Kendall if she intends to raise the baby with Ryan as a couple. Kendall is somewhat taken aback. She feels that what she intends to do is really none of Greg's business. Greg realizes he's overstepped his bounds as a doctor and tries to reassure Kendall that he only has her best interests at heart. Kendall isn't appeased. She continues to insist that she no longer wants him to oversee her pregnancy and fully intends to take her records and find a new doctor. Greg backs off but only marginally, subtly trying to convince Kendall that the best thing she can do for herself and the baby is to give it up for adoption.

Later, Kendall goes to talk to Ryan at his apartment. When she knocks, it's Jonathan who answers the door. Wary, Kendall enters the apartment and asks him when Ryan will be back. Jonathan tries to make Kendall comfortable but soon his excitement over the baby has him reaching out and asking her if he can touch her belly. Kendall steps back, clearly frightened. Jonathan quickly apologizes for scaring her and tries to explain his actions by telling her how excited that he's just so excited about becoming an uncle. When Jonathan starts talking about all the plans he has for his nephew such as teaching him baseball and taking him camping, Kendall becomes extremely uncomfortable. She quickly makes her excuses, asking Jonathan to tell Ryan that she stopped by and then leaves the apartment. In the hallway, Kendall pauses a moment to collect herself.

In his office, Dr. Madden calls the couple who are interested in adopting Kendall's baby. He apologizes for how things went. He assures them that he is certain that Kendall will think things over and decide to give her baby up for adoption. He promises them that they will soon the baby will be theirs.
