Sonny catches Carly in the elevator. She yells at him for beating up Zander, thinking he did it because she almost slept with him. Sonny stops the elevator and says that he'll give her an explanation, since she's back in his life and he loves her. He tells her what Zander did and said that normally, he would be dead, but because Carly cares for him, he didn't want her hurt, so he only had him beaten up (awwwww!). He says she can leave if she wants. She says she's not going anywhere. She forgives him, saying that she understands how he runs his life and how he has to protect himself. They hug.
