Rex will end up on Todd’s bad side (does Manning have a good side?) when he learns that Tommy is really Todd Jr. A health crisis leads Marcie and Michael to search for any living blood relative. Adrianna tells Marcie the truth. The thought of Tommy’s death is more terrifying to Marcie than having to hand him over to Todd. She pleads with Todd to save the boy. Todd refuses. “My son is dead, why should I help you save yours?” She then turns to Blair, confides what Adrianna told her and begs for help. DNA proves Tommy is Todd Jr. When the crisis is over, the McBains’s have to give him back. Their sorrow is tempered a bit by the discovery that Marcie is pregnant with twins.
