Janet tends to Dusty for the moment, as he’s still recuperating from his fights at Avalon Castle.  They kiss, but soon Janet’s having contractions.  He brings her to the hospital where the doctor does a sonogram.  Dusty has a copy and talks to John about it, speculating that the baby is bigger than expected because it’s actually Dusty’s. At EOD, John has Dusty’s cup tested against the DNA for Janet’s baby’s father. Liberty gets into F.I.T. from the waiting list, but is reluctant to go because of the baby on the way.  Faith encourages her to go, mostly because she’s jealous of Liberty’s and Parker’s relationship. She sees them at Al’s, Parker telling Liberty a secret of his own. Faith later tells Janet about Liberty’s having gotten in.  Janet is excited for Liberty and wants her to pursue her dreams despite the baby, because Janet’s done it before and moreover she’s not alone this time.  Liberty suggests to Faith that she be more honest with Parker, since that’s how she’ll win his heart.

Parker and Sage see that Jack and Carly are happy.  Sage hopes this means they’ll get married again, and wants to prod them in that direction.  Parker thinks if the status quo works, they shouldn’t mess it up by getting married again.  Sage leaves a picture of one of their earlier weddings on the couch, where Jack and Carly later find it.  They talk about how things have gone wrong in the past, but soon Jack is ready to propose.  But he gets a call that Janet’s having contractions.  They go to the hospital and later return, and Jack picks up where he left off, asking Carly to marry him.  It’s Carly and Jack’s wedding day. Carly’s nervous about the wedding. Gwen brings in Rosanna hoping her presence will help. Carly’s thrilled Jack tracked Ro down and the sisters reconcile. Gwen and Ro give Carly some alone time to collect herself. Carly leaves the house and goes to the Snyder pond. Carly accidentally drops the compass into the pond and Jack finds her in a tizzy unable to find it. Jack reassures her that they no longer need the compass to find each other.  Carly shares a warm moment with Gwen, Ro and Molly. They’ll all give her a flower for her bouquet.  Jack thanks Parker, Will and Holden for being there for him. He never thought, after Brad’s death, he’d feel this happy again. Carly and Jack are wed. Gwen, Rosanna, and Molly participate in the ceremony. Everyone’s thrilled when it goes off without a hitch – even with Craig present.

Lily and Gabriel warn Craig not to attend the wedding but he shows up anyway. Holden and Lily grow closer over their family.  Molly and Holden make up, in no small part because of Lily’s polite prodding. Parker tells everyone that he plans to be a cop, and go to police academy instead of college. Carly and Jack are nervous but supportive. Parker kisses Faith. Gabriel tells Craig he’s moving back to Montega. Craig flips out. Rosanna encourages Craig to let Gabriel go. Craig wishes Gabriel well and hugs him. Craig offers to buy Rosanna a drink and she accepts.  Liberty, however, is concerned about the whereabouts of her mother. Liberty tries to reach her, but the call goes straight to voicemail.

Dusty helps Janet decorate the cabin Jack and Carly will spend their honeymoon in. Dusty falls off a ladder, but is fine. Janet’s water breaks.  Carly and Jack leave their wedding and go to the cabin for their honeymoon. There they find Dusty injured and Janet having major contractions. With emotions running high, they all prepare to help Janet give birth in the cabin. With no time left, Jack, Carly, and Dusty pull together to help Janet deliver her baby in the cabin. Jack drives them to the hospital so Janet and the baby can be checked out. Jack discovers Carly weak, but before he can find a nurse to examine her they run into John telling Dusty that he’s the father of Janet’s baby. They’re all stunned. Dusty couldn’t be happier that John went behind his back and conducted a DNA test. Jack takes the news in stride and focuses on handing Carly off to a nurse.  Dusty goes to Janet and tells her the news. She feels for Jack, but she’s thrilled. Liberty and Teri arrive and congratulate the happy parents. Liberty finds Jack in the corridor and sympathizes with his loss. She encourages him to talk to Janet. Janet assures Jack that he’ll play a role in the baby’s life. Liberty says goodbye to her mother and the rest of her family, new and old. Dusty assures Teri and Liberty that he’ll close on the house he promised Janet and add a new addition to welcome all of them. Jack watches the happy family moment only to be pulled away by Carly who’s heard back about her tests. In private, Carly breaks the news to Jack – she’s pregnant.  They kiss passionately.

Lucinda consoles Luke over his loss. She assures him Reid will be remembered – she’ll also start a fellowship in his name. Luke’s further upset when he hears that Lucinda and Lily are fighting. Lucinda’s convinced there’s nothing she can do to win Lily back. She’s grateful when Noah interrupts Luke’s speech about how the loss of Reid has taught him that life is too short to waste holding grudges. Noah compliments Luke on finding his calling in his dedication to the hospital and Reid’s vision. When Luke realizes Noah’s at Java to work, he refuses to let him stay in Oakdale and give up his dreams in LA. Luke drags Noah to WOAK, where he gives him a piece of cinematic equipment. They realize they first met there. Luke and Noah acknowledge that they helped each other grow and come into their own. They share a warm goodbye.

John tries to compel Lily to forgive Lucinda. Lily won’t budge and Holden supports her. John runs into Lucinda at the Lakeview Lounge and admits that he spoke to Lily, to no avail. Lucinda’s downtrodden, even when John offers to take her with him to Amsterdam. Lucinda jumps at the opportunity to make amends when Lily invites her over, but when she arrives, Lily confesses that she’s didn’t invite Lucinda over to patch things up between them. She wants her mother to get her own life. Lucinda decides to take John up on his offer. Holden’s proud of Lily. They talk about growing up and starting their lives anew – and so, for a start, Holden kisses her.

In this final episode, Bob spends an otherwise ordinary day at his office, packing up his things before he and Kim move out to Arizona.  As he packs, he reflects on his life and long career as a doctor in this town.  He’s seen love and loss, birth and death, as many others in Oakdale have.  Alison wakes Casey up on this, the day they move to Carbondale.  Chris proposes to Katie, and she accepts.  Holden goes fishing with Ethan.  Tom and Margo, and Chris and Katie, agree to swap houses, one for a hopefully growing family, one for a pair of new empty-nesters.  Dusty and Janet introduce Jack and Carly to their baby, Lorenzo Dustin Donovan.  Jack and Carly are themselves almost a trimester into Carly’s pregnancy, and Sage can’t wait to tell the world.  Faith gets Parker to supervise her driving, but she speeds and gets them into trouble. Parker tries to take the heat for it, and Jack and Carly recognize themselves in the teens.  Luke is bereft after the loss of Reid, but he finds some solace in his family, especially Natalie, and in being there for them.  Paul wants out of business with Barbara, but he and Emily are surprised when Henry and Barbara meet them for dinner and Barbara has paperwork of her own that she wants Paul to sign.  She wants out, too.  It looks like Lily and Holden will find their way back to each other.  Craig wants the same for him and Rosanna, whom Johnny is excited to see.  Susan says goodbye to Bob.  Lucinda and John are themselves once again a couple, as Lisa supports them.  Kim gives Bob all the time he needs in his office.  Bob pockets his nameplate.  He spins the globe on his desk and leaves, but it lights up and keeps turning.
