Later that night, Bree comes into Danielle's room, cradling the baby, which is somehow a much smaller bundle of blankets now. Note to the prop department: it's the mother that gets smaller after the delivery, not the baby. Danielle's trying to be distant, but eventually, her face crumples and she wants to hold the baby. Bree hands him over and sits next to them on the bed. Bree wants to be sure Danielle is okay, and although Danielle seems to be having second thoughts, she emotionally says that this is the best thing for everyone. "Especially him," she says, handing back the baby. "But you're right," she admits. "It's awful." Bree takes the baby out so Danielle can sleep. After she finishes crying, that is.
Gabby is at home, leaving a message for Susan saying that she's going to be on her own for a while. "Going through some stuff," she says vaguely. Which is really just a way to set things up so that nobody will miss Gabby when she goes missing next week, I'm sure. A car outside honks its horn, and Gabby runs out, thinking it's there to pick her up. She's surprised to see it's a stretch limo, but happily gets in. Where she is the only one in the world surprised to see that Victor is sitting inside, pursing his lips at her. He asks her what's going on, since she seems to have moved out and all. Gabby says it's over, and she's leaving him. Wait, did a scene get deleted somewhere? Last we saw, she was dumping Carlos on a flimsy pretext, and now we're supposed to believe she's also turning her back on Milton's money? Maybe the explanation for this happened in another episode I didn't see. Victor isn't ready to let Gabby go, and she says that Victor doesn't ever seem have any time to talk about his problems. He makes a big show out of ripping a bunch of pages out of his day planner, but she's not impressed, saying he only wants to hold onto her for his governor run. So Victor offers to not run at all, saying it's what his dad wants. "Don't run away," he says, so emotionally that his voice and expression nearly change. "And if you do, take me with you." Gabby doesn't seem unaffected by this appeal, but she 's not as pretty with a big fishhook sticking out of her mouth.
Susan has come back to visit Mike's dad and tell him something. Namely, that she doesn't believe his story. When he wonders why she cares, she tells him that she can handle any physical defect her baby might have, but not if it's born without a soul or a conscience because of Papa Delfino's genes. Papa Delfino claims he can't think about what he did or he'll go crazy. He says that what he really regrets is turning a popular kid like Mike into a murderer's son. "I'm not sure that kind of darkness ever truly goes away," he tells Susan. Not helping, Mike's dad. Susan defends Mike, saying he's happy, with a wife and a baby on the way. Papa Delfino says he also had a lot going for him before he threw it all away. "Just keep an eye on him," he says, heading back to his cell. Always great advice, when given to Susan.
