Hesitantly, Jack admits to Carly that he lied. But it was only not to scare her and the kids. She's right; there was no client. The FBI contacted him before Christmas about an old case of his, and he went undercover to wrap it up. Carly yells he had no right to put himself in danger like that...not without telling her. He could have died, and the last memory she'd have had is another argument. Jack apologizes, and wraps his arms around her as she starts to cry. Stroking her hair, he admits even that last fight was a lie. He didn't believe for a moment that she caused Katie's miscarriage. It was a way to explain his sudden departure. There wasn't any danger, though. The assignment was just more complicated than anyone realized. And once Jack got her message, he knew where he needed to be: at home with her and the kids. Carly pulls away and teases the kids won't recognize him with that beard, and offers him use of the shower while she fixes him a sandwich. When the kids arrive home from school, they're thrilled to have their father home.

Carrie dares him to try, reminding him that he has a more twisted past than she does. Despite Rosanna's wishes, Barbara shows up and makes a show in front of Carrie. Will comes in, preventing the show from going anymore downhill. The nurse beckons Carrie as Barbara, Paul, Will, and Rosanna all await the results. Will blasts Barbara for coming, but she later confides in Paul that she thinks the outcome of the custody trial is to blame for Will's testy mood towards her lately. Paul chuckles that Will isn't in a bad mood because he lost Hallie; he's in a bad mood because Barbara's made his new girlfriend's life a living hell. In the exam room, Will grills Carrie as to why she never told him about her son. Carrie replies that she didn't trust him enough, but she does now. Through tears, she recalls a drunken one night stand leading to a pregnancy. After the baby was born, he went missing and she soon discovered her father had sold the baby on the black market to get money for his heroin addiciton. Will debates telling Barbara about Darryl, but doesn't realize she's heard the whole thing. Guilty over her interference in Carrie's life and struggling with the news that Darryl has turned to drugs, Barbara returns to the penthouse and sadly strokes a photo of Jennifer and Johnny.
