Grant looked down at the infant with such naked adoration in his eyes, Marley almost reconsidered everything she’d decided to do.  But she steeled herself, reminding that Marley had her reasons and that it would all work out in the end.  As long as she didn’t lose her nerve.  That’s where everything usually went wrong.  Whenever Marley lost her nerve.

“Thank you, Marley,” Grant said.  “Thank you for being so…” He trailed off.  “I can’t even think of the word for it.”

“You deserve this,” she indicated Grant and his baby girl.

“So do you.  Well, not this situation,” he faltered, realizing what he sounded like.  “But, I mean….”

“I know what you mean.”

“I know if our situations were reversed, I could never….”

Marley pointed out, “When you and Vicky were together, you accepted Steven, even though he wasn’t yours.  And you’ve been terrific with Bridget and Michele.”

“It’s not the same.”

“No.  It’s not.  But, this way, you have your daughter, and your daughter has you.  And I have you.  So everybody wins.”


Marley promises to teach Sarah - and Grant - a lesson, Rachel reels from the implications of her mysterious phone call, Matt wants to know Olivia's intentions while Morgan makes his crystal clear to Amanda, and Cass and Frankie try to get answers from Charlie.

A lot of eyes are opened in:
