Rick, Amber and Bridget sense Brooke is hiding something and beg her to open up to them. Brooke only admits that she has no intention of marrying Whip and refuses to give her child up for adoption. She insists that Whip won’t be a part of the baby’s life, but Rick observes that the baby is more important to Whip than Brooke realizes. Deacon and Megan try to find out who Whip Jones really is and how far he’ll go to get what he wants. Deacon is sure that Whip is a gold-digger and wouldn’t hesitate to blackmail Brooke. Whip tells his mother that he may not have gotten the promotion he wanted, but he’s about to have a very rich little baby. Joy warns Whip not to take advantage of Brooke and is horrified when she realizes he plans to extort money from her. Whip says that he’s paid his dues and there’s nothing that will stop him now. Whip calls Brooke, who advises him never to come over uninvited. Whip tells Brooke that he’s not the enemy and asks her not to turn him into one. Brooke informs Deacon that Whip is definitely going to be trouble and they have to keep the truth from him. Whip decides that if he can find out who the real father is, he would own Brooke.
