Bo explains that Nate knows about Eddie’s murder. Nora confronts Nate, who admits to everything, leaving Nora to make a painful decision. Destiny sees her mother, and asks her to sign a consent form so that she can terminate her pregnancy. Destiny and Mrs. Evans grow closer to mending their fractured relationship. Mrs. Evans agrees to sign the consent forms, and Destiny goes to see Matthew and tells him that she’s decided not to have the baby, unaware that Nora is listening to her conversation. Nora begs Destiny to have her child and to allow Nora and Bo to raise him. Upset, Destiny races from the room. Nora explains to Bo about their grandchild. Mrs. Evans is upset when she learns that Destiny is reconsidering her options and confronts Nora about her interference.

Todd awaits the results of the new test, while the man with Todd’s original face appeals to Viki. Viki thinks there may be only one person who can untangle the mess. Meanwhile, Jessica sees the man with her uncle’s original face for the first time, and he conveys his disbelief that she could work for Todd and never realize he was an imposter. Jessica confesses that she’s felt some disconnect with Todd. Todd tries to persuade Blair to help him convince Starr that he’s her real father.
