Scott came home to find Madison wearing one of his shirts. She apologized but he pointed out that she wore it well. Scott invited Madison to join him and Marissa at the movies.
Greenlee tried to calm Emma down when she demanded to see her mom. Emma accused Greens of breaking up her family. Luckily, Bianca arrived and diffused the situation. Greenlee was shaken up by the exchange. Emma then sneaked out of the house and went to go see Scott. Madison called Ryan, who said he’d be right there. Ryan called Greenlee, who was unaware that Emma had ducked out. Greens apologized and hung up. Bianca tried to calm an upset Greenlee. Ryan got to Scott’s and hugged his daughter, then told Emma that she’s not allowed to do that ever again. “Why don’t you marry Madison instead of Greenlee?” Emma huffed. Scott excused himself. Ryan explained to Emma that even though he and Madison were having a baby, they’re not together anymore. Ryan took Emma home and made her apologize to Greenlee. After, Greens assured Emma that she couldn’t get rid of her.
J.R. flirted with Marissa after getting caught in the rain earlier. He admitted he can’t stop thinking about her. JR moved in for a kiss but Marissa ran out, saying, “I can’t do this.”
Brot re-read the note from the baby girl’s mother. The baby’s mother, Maya, recalled writing the letter and wrote in her journal. Maya’s aunt broke into the room and berated Maya. After she left, Maya flashed back to tearfully leaving her baby behind. Just then, Asher stopped in to visit Maya. She mentioned that her aunt wanted to throw her out unless she got a job. Asher offered to help.
Angie woke up as a guilt-ridden Jesse held the baby. She could tell by his voice that he was upset and wanted to know why. Brot interrupted, asking to speak to Jesse. Brot informed Jesse that the mother’s prints were not in the system and there was no way to track her down. The news did little to ease Jesse’s guilt. After their talk, David approached Brot and asked what he was doing at the hospital. Brot replied he was just visiting Angie and the baby. Brot persuaded David not to barge in on Angie and Jesse. As David watched, a reporter stopped by to do a story on Angie and the baby. David eavesdropped as Angie spoke about how Jesse saved the baby. “That’s one bionic baby,” David called out. Jesse took the baby out of the room and a suspicious David questioned Angie about her “miracle birth.”
Scott went to see JR and accused him of stirring up trouble. JR vowed that he still cared about Marissa and didn't want to see her hurt. Scott told JR to stay out of his life. Later, Bianca and JR met up at the park. She thanked him for offering Reese a job.... At PVH, Scott assured Madison that she was the girl he was interested in, stressing he and Marissa are just friends. Scott then pulled Madison into a kiss.

JR approached and told them that it was the two-year anniversary of his sobriety. He asked Marissa to come to the anniversary meeting with him. Marissa declined. JR left and Marissa told Bianca she had to go to meet Scott for movie plans. On her way out, Marissa tried to play matchmaker for Bianca and the bartender. Bianca told the woman she was just ending a marriage and wasn't ready to date.
Diana, using an alias, got inside Kendall's house, claiming to need her phone. Kendall offered her some tea. Diana brandished a knife, which she hid when Kendall returned. Diana probed Kendall about Zach and Ricky. Ricky arrived and was upset to see Diana. He ushered her out and confronted her outside. Ricky warned her never to come near Kendall again. Kendall told Ricky that she'd gotten a strange feeling about the woman. Ricky left. Kendall found Diana's ID, which she'd left behind, and found out that she'd lied to her about her identity.

Tad asked Griff if he knew anything about the missing drugs. Griff beat a hasty retreat. Kendall showed up and told Griff about Diana's odd visit. Griff then phoned Brot to apprise him of the situation. They met up, but Brot didn't think he could help. A frustrated Griff said he would take care of it himself. He went to Kendall's and she promised not to open the door to anyone but Ricky.
Scott and Madison bonded as they made a home movie for Mad's baby-to-be. They ran into Ryan and Greens at the hospital during Emma's appointment. Ryan asked if they could go to Madison's appointment with her. After Ryan made an impassioned plea, Mad capitulated. In the waiting room, Scott told Greenlee that he doesn't have a problem with Ryan and Madison's bond. Ryan and Madison smiled at each other as they heard the baby's heartbeat. Post-appointment, Mad told Scott that she thinks everything is going to work out just fine with Ryan. Ryan reunited with Emma after her therapy session. Emma told Greens that she had told the doctor that she didn't want her as a stepmom. Back at the house, Greens felt more upbeat when she made Emma giggle.

Liza and David had sex. She instantly regretted it — then did it again. She got dressed and left.
Jesse and Angie brought Lucy in to the hospital (she had been crying a lot). Jake told Cara to take her to Room 424. Cara pronounced her healthy and asked Angie more questions about the delivery. Jake tried to get a pensive Jesse to open up to him and was affected by he sight of Cara snuggling the baby. Jesse fingered the baby mom's earring. Jake told Cara he hoped she'd have a kid someday. Cara thought that was an impossibility for her. Amanda arrived and spied them in a close moment. Frankie entered, as well, and retrieved his baby sister. Amanda told Jake she thought that night was perfect to try for baby No. 2. Jake hedged, telling her he didn't think it was the right time. She was upset.
Maya tried to shake thoughts of her baby and decided to do something about it. She went to the Chandler mansion but the house manager blocked her. Out of options, Maya went to the police station.
Kendall tried to allay Griffin's concerns about Diana's visit. She took a nap; he watched her sleep and in her dream, she fantasized about kissing him. When he asked what she'd been dreaming about, she snapped at him. Kendall wanted to know why Griffin was really there but he deflected. Ricky, fresh from dealing with Diana's corpse, arrived and Griffin bolted. Kendall told Ricky about Diana's visit and decided to look her up online. Despite Ricky's efforts to stop her, Kendall found out that Diana worked for the casinos. Meanwhile, Griffin returned home to find his room torn up and Diana's naked corpse in his bed.
David approached Angie at the hospital and suggested he may be able to restore her sight with an experimental method. Angie shot him down. He warned her not to miss out on seeing her baby simply because she despises him.
Jesse dealt with a distraught woman who was brought into the hospital demanding the return of her baby. Cara saw Jesse's reaction to the woman and became suspicious. She pulled Jake aside and pointed out to him that Jesse had been acting very strangely. Cara suggested that perhaps Angie's baby wasn't really hers....

Cara approached Jake with her concerns about how Lucy possibly could have survived. Jake told her to drop it.
Maya chickened out of telling Brot about abandoning her baby. Brot got a call and raced to Griffin's room, where, failing to revive the dead Diana, he was poised to call the cops. Griff told Brot that he had no idea how the body had gotten there. Ryan showed up at Kendall's, saying Griffin had sent him. Ryan called and Griff told him what was going on. Ricky stayed behind as Kendall and Ryan raced to the police station. Ricky went to Griffin's room.

At the station, Griff told Jesse everything he knew about the woman. Ryan and Kendall arrived and Kendall id'd the victim as the woman who had been in her house. Chaos ensued as the truth came out that Griff had been investigating Diana. Kendall was livid. Griff explained how Diana's associates had beaten him up. When Tad and Cara arrived and Tad admitted that he'd been working with Griffin, Jesse was frustrated. Griff apologized to Kendall and said he had just wanted to keep her safe. Jesse approached with plane tickets that had been found in Griffin's room, one for him and one for Diana. Drugs and $75,000 in cash had also been found. "It's not mine," insisted Griff. "I'm being set up." Kendall told the police that Griffin was stealing drugs and had told her so himself.
Jake took Angie and the baby home. She opened up to Jake about how hard it was not to be able to see her own baby. She informed Jake of David's offer to perform surgery. Jake was worried that David was playing Angie.
Ricky went to Krystal's and ordered a celebratory scotch.
Maya went home and vowed to become someone her baby could be proud of.
