It's never mentioned that Beth may have given Alistair the wrong drug, even though it did not have the effect that Beth desired.
Ethan was only able to tell Gwen about the drunken part of the night. He had no opportunity to tell her that Theresa had drugged him, yet Gwen commented on it while she and Theresa were going at it, assuming it as fact (which, of course, viewers know it was).
While in Alistair's hospital room, Beth spoke to Luis on her cell phone. There are rules against cell phone use in hospital because they interfere with the machines. (For the record, though, everyone in Harmony uses their cell phone in a hospital.)
Beth talks about Luis having to work three jobs to support his family while caring for Miguel and Theresa, but there was really no time. Antonio raised the family from the time Martin left (Luis was six) until after Luis was out of high-school, so there was only a very short period of time where Luis could have had to work three jobs. In addition, the show has always made it clear in the past that the only job Luis has ever had was that of local cop.
Eve comments in this episode that Julian is 'Alistair's only son'. It was previously revealed that Alistair has at least one other son, who has at least two children. The other son and Crane grandchildren have not been mentioned in a few years. As a nitpick more than anything else, a flashback shows a teenaged Julian (probably 16 or 17, since Julian was married to Ivy at 18) reading Sheridan a bedtime story, and interfering when Alistair gets rough with Katherine. Previous flashbacks have shown Julian as a weak and easily contolled teenager who always let Alistair tell him exactly what to do, and it's always been stated that Julian and Sheridan didn't have much of a relationship, but here she clearly adored her older brother.
Fox states that prior to that night, he thought Ethan was his only half-brother. Although Ethan Sr. is his only legal half-brother, Fox is fully aware of his younger biological half-brother Ethan Jr. (who is now legally his half-nephew). The half-brother he learned of this episode would be his third half-brother. He also has a half-sister he doesn't know about (Endora Lenox).
Theresa claims that she is doing what she is doing to 'get back at Gwen and Rebecca', who 'started the war'. This is a frequent refrain on PSSN, as Theresa has never acknowledged that it was she who started the war the day she targeted Gwen and Ethan.
The maid at the mansion refers to Ethan as 'Mr. Crane'. Ethan chose to change his name from Crane to Winthrop not long after learning he was Sam's son.
Gwen and Ethan decide that they are going to give Little Ethan back to Theresa. They cannot do that. Theresa has no legal rights to the boy, and in the eyes of the law, Gwen and Ethan are his legal parents. An adoptive parent cannot just 'change their mind'. Even if Gwen and Ethan could nullify the adoption, since Theresa's parental rights were terminated, custody could not be given to her. She would have to petition the court to get her son back.
Ethan and Gwen are at the hospital. They see Theresa and they also check in on Pilar. Well, how come they don't check on Kay? After all, Kay is Ethan's sister and you think that Sam or Eve or somebody would mention that Kay was in the hospital. Plus, Kay just found out that she is unable to have kids. Gwen (who also can't have kids) could comfort her.
This episode destroys some vital Passions history. Originally, Julian was in his late twenties and Sheridan twelve-years-old when Katherine disappeared. But by stating Julian was a teen and Sheridan six when Katherine disappeared less than twenty years ago, it is impossible for Julian and Ivy to have been married with four children (including ten-year-old Ethan) when Katherine disappeared. Not only that, but Martin and Pilar only moved to the Crane estate after Julian and Ivy wed. With Julian now an unwed teen when his mother left, there was no reason for Pilar to be there, since she worked in a different city in a different state for the Winthrop family.
The assassin that Alistair hired to kill Martin and Katherine got into a fight with Martin, and ended up shooting accidentally. We thought that Martin was dead, but he had really just passed out from hitting his head -- the gunman had been shot instead. However, he stands there and speaks to Katherine quite normally for about ten minutes before realizing it. It's not possible to function, and especially speak as competently as he did, for that long... especially since the bullet seemed to have hit quite close to his heart.
It is implied that Paloma is in high school, which means she's possibly 17 or 18. This could hurt the storyline. This could mean that Paloma was born in 1986 or 1987. It's been said that Martin left a year after Miguel was born and Paloma was just an infant, which be 1984. Either that or she's 20-years-old in high school.
Theresa states that Ethan was 'stripped him of everything' when it came out he was not a full-blooded Crane, but Ethan was actually stripped of his rights when he postponed his wedding to Gwen. It's likely that Ethan never told Theresa he was out.
Fox tells Theresa that he is worried that he may be ousted in line for the Crane fortune. No matter how many illegitimate or legitimate children pop out of the woodwork, Alistair will pick and choose his heir, and Alistair has made it clear that he would never accept an illegimate heir, nor one that is not 100% from the Crane social circle.
Theresa tells Gwen that she is carrying 'her and Ethan's baby', insisting that she has the legal right to keep Ethan and Gwen from seeing that child. This is not correct. Because Theresa has no biological connection to the baby (and no legal connection, since she stole the embryo), she cannot claim the child legally or otherwise. By law, she is required to turn that child over to Ethan and Gwen.
Although surrogate mothers often have the rights to keep the child they carry, Theresa is wrong in thinking she will be able to use this child as a bargaining chip. She is not a surrogate who is entering into a contract, she is a woman who stole an egg and had it implanted in her. The courts would never allow her to keep the child.
Sheridan comments in this episode that she didn't know Fox very well. Even though he was only five when she was sent to the mental hospital in Europe, Sheridan knew enough about him to state that he was reprehensible and selfish in the years before he came to town.
Woody Stumper refers to Harmony as a 'city' in the courtroom, but it's clearly been established that Harmony is a village, not a city. It's uncertain whether this is a writer's error, or showcasing the ineptitude of lawyer Woody Stumper.
When the Russells sit down for dinner, Eve asks where Theresa is. Whitney then says that she might not come. John then says that Gwen blames Theresa for the baby's death. The people who went to LA just got back that day and John doesn't really know any of them and had no contact with them prior to this episode. So how would he know about Gwen's baby?
