After meeting with Gus, Vivian tells Victor that Carly delivered a baby, years ago, in a Swiss hospital. They contemplate who the father is, and where the child is now.  Hope tells Justin she’s ready to move on from Bo. She needs Justin to help her do it. Justin misunderstands and believes she shares his same feelings. Hope, however, asks him to be her lawyer, and serve Bo with separation papers. Justin refuses, but Hope pushes him to tell her why. Justin finally admits that it’s because he’s in love with her. Stunned, Hope doesn’t know how to respond, and Justin tells her that if she’s still in love with Bo, she must fight for her marriage. Bo confronts Carly about avoiding him. She’s angry with herself because she professed her love to Bo knowing that he doesn’t feel the same. Suddenly, Bo receives a call and becomes alarmed. He reveals to Carly that one of his sources found out someone was asking questions at the Swiss hospital where she had her daughter. Panicked, Carly is sure it’s Vivian, and becomes worried that she will try to finish what Lawrence sought out to do – kill her daughter.

Just after Melanie rebuked Nathan for suggesting that things are going too fast with her and Philip, Philip comes upon their tense interaction. Nathan leaves and Philip follows him to makes things clear. Nathan is strong, but Philip’s words seem to truly end thoughts of Nathan and Melanie being together. Meanwhile, Melanie insists to Maggie that she knows what she is doing regarding being with Philip, but has a hard time convincing even herself. Later, Lexie urges Nathan to make his feelings clear to Melanie while Philip proposes to Melanie that they elope. Troy meets with Arianna and is pleasant with her, but, he privately plans on taking her out. Carly can’t deal with her feelings for him. Given that Vivian might have found out she has a secret child, Carly decides that she will stay away from her daughter until Vivian is neutralized. Bo reminds Carly she’s not alone.  Hope overhears Vivian tell Victor that she knows part of Carly’s secret. Justin’s arrival prevents Vivian from saying more. Vivian invites Hope and Justin to join her and Victor on their trip to celebrate New Year’s Eve, but both turn her down. Alone, Hope tells Justin about what she overheard and about seeing Bo and Carly kissing. However, she decides to protect Carly from Vivian. Justin gives her an idea on how to do that. In the meantime, Vivian tells Victor that once she discovers the identity of Carly’s child, she plans to take that child away from Carly… permanently.  Sami is about to tell Rafe about the note from Sydney’s kidnapper when he receives a call from his FBI contact. This leads him to explain to her what the Feds would do if they received a ransom note. Sami believes that FBI involvement would not necessarily protect Sydney and she decides not to tell him about the note. She explains this to EJ, who’s relieved, although Sami herself is still torn about her decision. Meanwhile, Anna is keeping tabs on Sami, and makes sure that neither the Feds, nor the cops, will be called.
