Florence is uncertain about having a meeting with Taylor and Steffy.  She needs to know the full story behind the baby.  She needs to know now.

Flo asks if Reese has a thing for Taylor and if he’s just using her.  Flo thought he called because he missed her.  Reese kisses Flo. Flo tells Reese she pretended to be the baby’s mother, but she’s done.  She can’t do it anymore.

Reese needs her to continue.  Flo needs to know exactly how he ended up with that baby.  But Reese can’t tell her.  Its that bad, he assures Flo.  Flo says she will leave and go back to Vegas if he doesn’t.

Reese beings the story.  He was the only one at the clinic because of the storm cutting the roads across the island.  He was alone when the two patients came in.  he got a call threatening his daughter.  Every day he wonders if they are going to do something to his daughter.

Who Flo asks.

Reese put Zoe in danger.  Reese continues.  There was a young mother in labor – alone.  She did everything he could, but the baby was stillborn.  She just wanted to forget, she didn’t want anything to know.  Reese says he did everything he could. There were no staff, no papers.  So after the mother left.  Reese paused.

What does that night have to do with he baby sleeping in the other room, Flo demands.  What about the second patient Flo asks.

He had no support whatsoever. He hates what he did.  The second patient was in active labor also.  She lost consciousness.  His daughter was being threatened. Flo asks about the baby.  Reese cleaned off the baby, a little girl, and checked her vitals.  As he stared down at the baby, it hit him.  Taylor and her daughter.  He made a decision.  The worst of his life.  But it was a solution.  He put that beautiful baby up for adoption.

When the father arrived, he told his first lie.  Reese told him his daughter died.  He had to tell his wife.  They mourned the stillborn baby fom the other night.  Flo is horrified that Reese switched the babies.  She demands to know the name of the mother of the baby sleeping in the other room.  Hope Reese tells her.  Hope will never know her child is alive Reese tells Flo.

Taylor wonders if Steffy really wants to raise two children so close in age. Steffy can’t stop thinking about it.  If everything works out, Steffy can’t say no.  She wants this for Kelly, especially now since she’ lost her baby Beth.  She no longer believes in optimism and humanity.

Brooke tells her the pain will ease.  A bit of her will always be missing, but one day Hope will have children in that is what she wants.  Hope doesn’t think that she can go throught this again.  She’s already lost two pregnancies.  What is wrong with her Hope wonders. She failed Beth.  If she’d stayed awake, things would have been different.

Hope Can’t Be Comforted

Brooke has Hope food, but she doesn’t want to eat.  Brooke thinks Hope needs to look after herself.  Maybe Hope needs to get out of the cabin and go to the office.  As tragic as this is, life must go on.  But Hope just wants to know why.  Hope for the Future and its message just seems so foreign to her.  None of it matters.  She couldn’t even save her own daughter.

Brooke tells her the pain will ease.  A bit of her will always be missing, but one day Hope will have children in that is what she wants.  Hope doesn’t think that she can go throught this again.  She’s already lost two pregnancies.  What is wrong with her Hope wonders. She failed Beth.  If she’d stayed awake, things would have been different.
