'Kristina' is more determined than ever to make sure that Alexis is safe now. She knows that if she is found out, she will be taking Alexis to jail and Alexis canít handle that. She has to protect Alexis. She knows that Alcazar had to pay for what he did to her family land Alexis couldnít do that, neither could the justice system. That is why 'Kristina' had to act.

Cameron wants more information from 'Kristina' and she hates that. All he does is probe her and question everything.

Alexis is deep inside her and only 'Kristina' can reach her. Cameron finds that terribly unfair. Decisions are being made that involve Alexis and she should have a say in what happens too. Cameron knows that Alexis must be suffering now because of what 'Kristina' did to Alcazar and nothing else. Cameron also has a concern for Kristina. What is to become of that little child? Surely, 'Kristina' wants what is best for herÖ.'Kristina' again says that she will take care of the baby if that time comes. Cameron tells her that she will not be taking care of the baby then as that child will be gone. Cameron knows that if this case goes through, Alexis would be deemed insane and then the baby would go to Ned and grow up in dysfunction with the Quartermaines. Is that what 'Kristina' wants for the baby and Alexis? Alexis too would be depressed and sad that she were separated from her child.
Alexis comes out of her 'Kristina' personality and instantly knows that she has flipped again. She asks immediately how long she has been out this time. Cameron only knows that it has been too long. Alexis is growing more and more scared of this condition. Cameron will be there to see her through it and he takes her in his arms and holds her close.
Sonny is not stupid. He knows his wife and she usually understands that when he says no, he means no. For her to come to him again after he made himself clear to her before, makes him think that she is afraid of something and that Ric must be forcing her to work on his behalf. Ric feels that Carly has stood up for him because she believes that he could do a good job. He has done a good job for Carly so why shouldnít she want to have him do a good job for Sonny? Ric senses that Sonny just doesnít like him and that anything that he does isnít going to make Sonny want him as a lawyer.
Carly comes into the room thinking that Sonny and Ric are fighting. Ric is glad that she is there as he would like to clear something up. Sonny doesnít mind putting his cards on the table. He only has two questions to be answered about Ric and he has answered them. Does he trust the guy and can he do a good job? Sonny is leery of the guy as he has been hiding information since he hit town. That doesn't sit well with Sonny. Ric has been involved deeply with a man that Sonny hates and if Carly is okay working with him that is fine as long as Ric knows his place, but that is it. There is no place in Sonnyís organization for Ric.

Ric thanks Carly for trying to help him out with Sonny. He will wait and maybe Sonny will change his mind about the man later on.

Ric reminds her of her circumstances and she tells him that she feels threatened again that he is blackmailing her.
Sonnyís man asks him why Ric is still around if Sonny is suspicious of him. Sonny has him still around as he did help with Jason and Brenda and it is good to have the man working with his wife so that he can keep an eye on him.
Carly doesn't misunderstand. She knows that Ric is telling her that she better get Sonny to take him on or he will find out about Ric sleeping with his wife. He assures her that she doesnít understand him at all. He is only pointing out to her that they are friends and she will be helping him out. She is leery of him as Alexis used to be the same way and look how that turned out. Ric finds that Carly would be glad to have someone as good as he looking out for Sonny and keeping him out of trouble.

Summer knows that she is a person and has needs of her own and this isnít fair to her. She isnít going to do this anymore. She has her own life to lead.

Summer finds it hard to just leave this way. She canít help it if she wants it all. What she is trying to say is that she doesn't want to be Laura anymore.
