Mike visits Sonny. He apologizes for what he said the other night to Carly. He asks Sonny how he can help him to get through the pain. He doesn't want Sonny to lose it again. Sonny says he can't help, "my son's dead" he says sadly. Sonny has a phone call and is surprised when he returns that Mike is there. Mike tries to get Sonny to open up and release his anger. Sonny can't blame Mike; he blames himself. They argue. Mike tells Sonny to remember how his son made him "better" rather than punishing himself. Sonny denies he is doing that. He talks about how it is affecting Carly, how she sits in the nursery with his blue bunny. It is an emotional scene. Sonny says if he wants to help him, help him with Carly. Sonny can't figure out why Carly feels so guilty. Mike points out that he's acting the same way, but he doesn't care about that, only Carly. He talks about how Michael is suffering. Mike suggests that Carly see a doctor. Sonny tells him about the cradle and the aftermath. Mike says the only thing he thinks Sonny can do is be there for Carly, no matter what she says or how she tries to push him away. Sonny thanks him for his help and tells him he would have "been a great grandfather". Sonny gets a call so Mike leaves.

Chloe writes in her diary about the nightmares and headaches. Jax comes in and they joke around. Alexis arrives. They catch up on what's been going on. Jax asks Alexis for help with Helena. Alexis offers to go to Helena for him about the drug, but he says that's too dangerous. He just wants Alexis to help him think of something else. But Alexis won't hear of it and heads out, determined to speak with Helena.
Helena continues to speak to someone about how much poison it would take to kill Stefan. Then she talks to her aide about how to "get close to Stefan at Windemere". Alexis arrives and says she wants to ask Helena for a favor. Helena doesn't want to hear about it. When Alexis asks her why she won't give Jax the medication, she replies, "Why should I? What's in it for me?" Alexis points out that Jax will like him more. Helena doesn't buy it so Alexis says that she owes Chloe for running her over when she was trying to kill Alexis. Helena denies it again. Alexis says that if she gets the medicine for Chloe, she will help Helena next time she needs it, "no questions asked". Helena doesn't believe that Alexis would hold up her end of the bargain. She asks if Alexis would give her life, and Alexis laughs. Helena reminds her that she supposedly tried to kill her, so why would she need her? Alexis says that the only reason she hasn't ripped out Helena's heart is because she thinks she might have some humanity, and dares her to prove it. Why would you do this? she asks. Helena whispers, "Because I can" and Alexis storms out.
Alexis phones Jax to tell him that the visit with Helena was fruitless. He reads Chloe's journal where she says "a part of me wonders if I'll ever get well". He continues reading and reads the part where she heard Jax's venomous words to Helena. Chloe comes down so Jax asks her about it. "You're dreaming I want to murder you?"
A man brings the poison to Helena. She is pleased.

Laura tells Luke that she was there the night he got quarantined with Felicia. He says it was "just a coincidence". She says she just feels bad for Mac, then asks directly, "Are you sleeping with her?" Luke refuses to answer so she backs off. She says they don't have anything in common any more besides Lulu and Lucky, and they can't agree on the latter. Just then, Lucky walks up behind her.
