The Maury Povich Storyline
Michelle and Steve find Ryan at th’ospickle where, other than a few cuts and bruises, he is already. Alex is being kept overnight, however. Michelle pleads with him to never run off and talk to her if he has a problem in the future.
Nick shows up and asks to see Ryan. Michelle blames this all on him but Nick asks her to think about why Ryan went to his place. Wendy shows up and soon enough, there is a heated discussion about doing the DNA tests. We do learn, however, that learning Alex wasn’t their son wasn’t the only thing that ended Nick and Wendy’s marriage, despite Nick’s declaration that it was. Oh, and Steve asks if someone would please think of the children.
In the end, it is decided that Michelle and Ryan will take the DNA test and it will be the boys’ decision if they want to have a relationship with their biological parents.
Steve, Michelle, and Ryan return to the Rovers where Liam tells him that no matter what happens, he’s still family and he’d better not think about trying to get out because he’s stuck with them. “We’ll pull you back in,” he says, doing Al Pacino in the not-very-good Godfather III.
In the end, Michelle knows that Alex is the baby she birthed because of the resemblance to Dean. Still, the episode ends with the mother and son swabbing their mouths and putting their DNA in the test kits provided.
