“ Night and Day ”
Unexpected revelation for Alex
Natalie is purposely leaving Duncan out of all the celebrations. Although he tries hard to cope, Ryan tells his mother that she can only have one man in her life and she has to make a decision.
Kate feels threatened by the tension between Dennis and Holly so announces during a play rehearsal that she and Dennis are getting married. Though shocked, when she promises him sex, Dennis finds himself agreeing. Later Holly explains to a confused Dennis that Roxanne’s baby is intersex. It takes him a while to grasp what that means.
When Alex and Roxanne visit the doctors to discuss urgent surgery for the baby, he refuses on the grounds that he wants to keep it a boy, not make it a girl. When he explains his woes to a drunken Rachel, she tells him that he already has a son: Josh Alexander.
Duncan is mistaken in his belief that Natalie has decided to make a new start with him. Her new start involves Woody and the baby and she throws a party to celebrate the news.
Alex spends the day baby sitting with Josh, trying to come to terms with the news that he is his son. He tells a surprised Roxanne that their baby must be operated on. When he sees Steph he tells her that he knows. She persuades him to wait before telling Josh because they cannot be sure that the news will stop him loving Della.
Kate guesses that Celeste is not pregnant. Unable to pretend she is pregnant any longer, Celeste tells Ryan she has had a miscarriage.
Alex spends quality time with Josh and almost tells him the truth about his parentage. Steph persuades him he will be more useful if he fathers him from afar because of the complications the truth will create for Josh and Della’s relationship. He tells Roxanne that they should not operate on the baby until it is old enough to decide for itself and Roxanne agrees. Later he tells Josh that Della is definitely a lesbian so he has no chance. Della watches from a far hoping that her father is helping her win Josh.
Celeste believes that Ryan loves her regardless of the baby so thinks she can tell him the truth that it was a false alarm. When she does, his good will breaks and he dumps her.
Natalie threatens Duncan with a knife because she is so highly-strung about the baby. When she learns the truth she tells Woody that their love is not dependent on they’re being grandparents.
When Holly says she is dating Della to make Dennis jealous he tells her that they cannot be together because she is too complicated. Later he breaks free of Kate as well, pointing out they hardly know each other so cannot get married.
