-Bonnie congratulates Mimi and hugs her. She whispers in her ear how she may have just ensured her future with Shawn. Shawn is stunned and happy. He hugs Mimi and says that he is gonna finally have a child as Belle reminds him of Claire. Shawn says he knows that and loves Claire but now he gets to be there for Mimi through the whole pregnancy and support her which he couldn’t do with her. Belle says that it wasn’t her fault that they never remembered being together. Bonnie then asks Belle to come with her to talk. They leave the room and Bonnie warns Belle to back off. She reminds her that she herself said that the choice of who he wants to be with was Shawn’s and it is now clear who he wants. Its Mimi. She is giving him a child and he needs to be there for her every step of the way. Shawn will be there for Claire too but she needs to back off and let Shawn be with Mimi. Belle says that Shawn loves her too and it doesn’t matter if Mimi is giving him a child-he already has one with her so it’s a moot point. Bonnie warns Belle to back off and let Shawn do what he wants. She also warns Belle that she will do what it takes to ensure her daughter’s well-being and happiness. She says that she always liked Belle and cared about her since she was Mimi’s best friend and helped them build a home when they were homeless but that is the past and she will not let Belle push Shawn and destroy her daughter’s life. They both go back in and hear Shawn tell Mimi that he will be there for her through everything and isn’t gonna leave her. He is so happy and says he loves her and their baby. Mimi cries and says she feels the same way. Belle looks on jealously as Bonnie laughs. The doctor then stops everything and tells them all that they didn’t let him finish before. Mimi’s condition is very precarious and given her medical history there is a high chance of miscarriage. They believed it was impossible for her to conceive but she did. Mimi says that she will hold onto that and hope that she gets another miracle and carries the baby to term. The doctor tells her to do that she needs to be stress-free and watched and taken care of at all times. Shawn says its no problem since they live together. The doctor stresses that anyone or anything that could upset Mimi should be avoided because they smallest worry could cause her to miscarry. Her condition is very delicate and she may later on have to be bed-ridden. Mimi doesn’t care and either does Shawn. They just want their baby to be born and to be healthy and happy. The doctor leaves as bonnie warns Belle not to hurt her daughter and cause her to lose this baby. She tells Belle that the best thing to do would be for her to stay away from Shawn and stop with all the embraces and close moments since they could upset Mimi. Belle says that she loves Shawn and that they shouldn’t have to do that but Bonnie warns her that if Belle does anything to hurt Mimi she will pay. She hugs Mimi and congratulates her again. She says she will call her and will tell Connor everything and leaves. Mimi feels bad her brother isn’t here but says that she hopes he is alive since he would be a great uncle. There is still a chance and she needs to pray that it ends up like that. Shawn agrees. Mimi complains that she is hungry and Shawn offers to get some food for her. He says it will be the first of many times he will be waiting on her hand and foot. On the way out, he bumps into Belle. Belle congratulates him and Shawn thanks her. He warns Belle to avoid stressing Mimi out and also thinks that him and Belle should limit their amount of contact. Any close moments between them could cause Mimi stress. Belle says that Bonnie said the same thing. Shawn agrees and says that they can still see each other but they can’t let their feelings get the best of them. Belle cries and asks about their future together. She says she had hope but now it seems Shawn has made his choice. Shawn insists he hasn’t decided anything. He has to be there for Mimi to get her through this since her condition is so dangerous and after the baby is born he will decide what to do. Belle notes how it seems their reunion keeps getting put off and wonders if its meant to be. Shawn just asks Belle to abide by his wishes and she agrees. He said he will check on Claire later and thanks her for understanding. He leaves as Belle cries and admits that she believes that Shawn already made his choice and that its really over for her and him now. This time for good. Meanwhile, Mimi is overjoyed in her room and now feels confidant she has Shawn. She just hopes she carries her baby to term so she can finally have the life and family she wanted.

-Maggie walks through the park. She has flashbacks of meeting Mickey, marrying him, and hanging the ornaments on the tree at Christmas. She then flashes back to sending Mickey and Shawn out into the storm and blames herself again for both their deaths. She screams that she not only is to blame for Mickey’s death but also for Shawn Sr’s. She remembers how she almost drank the night before but threw the bottle and broke it. She has been able to think about nothing but alcohol all day. She thinks it’s the only way to deal with the pain and agony she is facing. She remembers her AA meeting and advice and says that Mickey would not want her to give him to temptation. She thinks about calling Lucas so they can support each other but then changes her mind. She overhears some people coming and they are reading the paper. They are commenting on the accident and are reading about all the deaths. The read about Mickey and Shawn Sr’s and wonder why they were out in the storm. They comment on how nice both men were. Mickey had been a lawyer for one of them and Shawn Sr had served them at the pub. They all agree that both men had to be out on their own accord. Anyone that would’ve sent them out last night may as well have hurt or killed them themselves. Maggie hears all this and goes behind the bushes. She covers her mouth and begins to shake and break down uncontrollably. She has the same flashbacks she had earlier of her and Mickey and then her sending them out into the storm. She blames herself and screams that she should be punished. She hears the voices of those people she overheard and their words in her head. She holds her head and runs off in tears. Eventually, she ends up at a liquor store. She wipes her tears and walks in reluctantly. She walks over and tries to pull back but convinces herself that she needs to drink to get through this. Her vow of sobriety no longer matters. She lost her husband and doesn’t even care if she drinks herself to death. She blames herself for his death and costing a woman her husband and no one can convince her otherwise. She picks on bottle and then another and so on. Eventually, she has a whole basket full and the clerk asks her if she is having a party and then asks if she is ok noticing her hands shaking and tears in her eyes. She urges him to cash her out and stop asking questions. He does so and she walks out. She takes one of the bottles out of the bag outside the store and asks herself what she is doing. She prepares to go back in and return everything but then changes her mind. She now believes that drinking will be her punishment and if she drinks herself to death so be it. It would serve her right. She needs to do this to stop feeling the way she is and to punish herself plain and simple. She put the bottle in the bag and looks up to the sky and says, “Sorry my darling Mickey. I know if I do this you will be disappointed in me but what I did already was the worst disappointment. I failed you as a wife and I sent you and Shawn to your deaths. I am too blame and nothing matters now. Nothing I do matters. I need to be punished and I need to stop feeling this pain inside of me. I have to do this-I can’t take it anymore.” She breaks down again as she starts walking away as the screen fades to black.
