Luke is in his office when he hears someone breaking in. He tests his alarm system on Felicia, who is not happy that he called her there. He wants her to hear his latest plan. She gives him five minutes. He says he plans to walk into Helena's lawyer's office to steal her access to the Ice Princess. He wants Felicia to pose as Olga, Darius Cassadine's sister. She points out that it's "fraud". He doesn't agree. She keeps pointing out the drawbacks. He wonders why she's worrying about Mac, unless she's planning to reconcile with him. She says she wants to do right by her girls. Luke says it will all work out and somehow he convinces her. He tells her to go dress like a Cassadine ("like a repitilian creature and sucks blood and hangs upside down") and meet him back there. She leaves.
Later, Felicia returns, dressed to the nines as Olga. Felicia is in his Darius garb. They joke around as they leave for their big job.

Gia comes by and hugs Nikolas in happiness. She offers to stay with him while he waits for Laura to get out of a meeting. He tells her what he knows, which isn't much.

Carly says that he did so much for her and she just wanted to return the favor. All he needs is his father, so that's why he set him up. He doesn't let her off the hook easily. He is pissed again at her impulsiveness and deception, and scared that she's not listening to him because it puts her in danger. He says she is violating their trust, which puts everything they have in jeopardy. She apologizes, realizing how important it is to him, and promises she won't do it again.
