Lucas & Sami Get Closer Over Cookies:
Lucas goes to Sami's apartment when a letter arrives from their son Will from camp. After a little bit of motivation to prove that Sami is a good mother, Lucas convinces her to bake old-fashioned chocolate chip cookies for Will's volley ball team. Once hot in the kitchen, Sami admits to Lucas that there are a lot of things she would have one differently for Will's sake. Lucas reassures her that she has been a good mother and admits to being proud of the way she raised Will. Despite the mutual admiration, they eventually begin to argue when Lucas blames the negative things that have happened to Will on the fact that Sami lied about Will being his son. Sami blames what she did no being young and na´ve and apologizes for her actions. She suggests that they get over the past and move on. While the cookies bake, Lucas takes the time to also apologize for starting the argument with her and admits that the recent stress in his life has been keeping him on edge. In a heart to heart conversation about their childhoods, Sami gets worked up about her feelings for John. Sami feels that John destroyed her life with her family and that she will never be able to measure up to the perfect daughter reputation of half sister, Belle. Sami remembers the time she walked in on John and her mother together while she was married to Roman and accuses John of flaunting their scandalous affair. Lucas calms her down and tells her that she can't continue to blame her problems on other people now when they remember the cookies. They come out perfect proving that Sami can change to be a decent person.
