She lays over him crying and Katie just stands there watching them.

Carly goes to the liquor store and the clerk that was working the night the receipt was given out is working there. She asks if they have security cameras there and he says no. She asks him if he would be able to recognize a woman’s picture as a customer that was there that night. When she shows him the picture he tells her they have a lot of customers and it would be too hard to remember them all. She goes back to try and find the homeless woman but keeps missing her.

Gwen and Will are at the hospital to check on Hallie but the nurse won’t let them in to see her without the mother’s approval. They explain that they are the birth parents but the adoptive parents. The nurse says she is sorry but Sofie walks in and tells the nurse it is ok, but she needs to talk to Gwen and Will first. She tells Gwen thank you for giving her blood to save Hallie’s life.

Sofie runs into Chris in Old Town crying. He is worried when he sees her crying. She tells him she just gave Hallie back to Gwen and Will. She says she tried to keep her but she just couldn’t handle it. He asks her how come she didn’t go to him before this, he could have helped her with her baby. She says that is the point. She should have been able to take care of her by herself. He didn’t know anything about Hallie being sick. She asks him where was he. He told her he was under suspension and when she asks why he told her because someone had drugged him making it look like he was at work drunk. She asks who would do something like that. He says why she doesn’t ask her friend Paul Ryan about it.

Sofie storms in to see Paul. She asks him point blank if he drugged Chris. Paul looks her straight in the eye and tells her no he didn’t. He asks her if she believes him. She tells him well he has never lied to her before. He tells her he wishes she would let him help her because she really needs a lawyer. She tells him she doesn’t now because she has decided not to go for the reversal adoption.

He confesses that he used the papers as an excuse to come see her. She tells him he and she is over and they can’t be together. She asks him to just please stop.
