Cloe explains she ordered this before they were married and it is something for the baby, not for her. She shows him the receipt. She says she actually bought some really cute stuff and she asks if he wants to see them. He pulls out a giraffe and asks if this is suppose to replace the one her mom took from her. She tells him no, it is for the baby and it is going in the nursery as she walks out the room.

She tells him he should go so he leaves. When Lily goes back inside she tells Neil she is ok but he can see she isn’t.

Nick calls and tells Phyllis that the body wasn’t Victor. Sharon is listening to her talking to Nick when Cloe comes in and tells her that she and Cane got married. Sharon tells Cloe that is nice and then walks away from her so she can listen to Phyllis talking to Nick. She asks if she can talk to him and grabs the phone.
