The episode begins at Molly’s where Herrmann asks Otis for a camera because his wife wants to make a video journal for the baby who is due in a couple of weeks. Otis tells him to use the camera on his phone. Otis is organizing a ladies night special at Molly’s and Dawson is slightly surprised. Actually she doesn’t like the idea. Casey is still trying to cope with Hallie’s death. Shay tells Dawson that her cycles are delayed. She tells her that she hasn’t taken the home test because they are never hundred percent. So, she and Kelly went to the doctor and she will know the results later. Mills arrives and it is clear that Dawson and Mills still aren’t talking. ..
