Faith begs Jason not to kill her, saying Courtney won't forgive him for killing someone. Jason is not impressed. He prepares the room for her possible execution, taping down plastic sheeting to the floor to catch any spilled blood. She asks what he wants and even offers to have sex with him. He tells her that her silent partner is going to rescue her, so she realizes she's bait for Ric. She screams as Jason puts her in the chair so that her Ric can get a clear shot of her head through the window.
Lucky accuses Summer of keeping the postcard from him, but she says it's not his
problem. She thinks maybe she should find her brother on her own. Luke shows up
to warn Lucky about the restraining order. They fill him in; Summer doesn't want
Luke involved because she's afraid he might hurt her brother. She says it's
possible that Nikolas has involved him in his plotting about Laura. Luke can't
promise anything, but Lucky promises he'll look out for her brother. They try to
figure out where the postcard is from. She says it's an island called Marbella.
They hear dogs so Luke gets Lucky's jacket and uses it as a decoy so Lucky and
Summer can get away. They do get away and Lucky has to talk her into letting him
go with her again. He says he's going to find her brother Matt either way. They
agree to leave town tonight after getting a few things and some cash. But they
hear some cops talking at Kelly's about an APB out on Lucky, so they leave
without stopping at his place. Summer is surprised to find that Lucky has an
SUV. He says it belongs to a photographer friend who is out of town. They plan
to stop at Luke's to get cash but instead Luke's head pops up from behind them,
saying "Are we there yet?"

Sonny has stuff to do so he leaves for now. Dr. Meadows assures Carly that the paternity test will be completely confidential. Courtney is outside so she plans to stay with Carly. Sonny warns her about getting into dangerous situations, so she knows that Jason told him about the night before. Courtney says tentatively that she hopes that Sonny turns out to be the man that Jason and Carly think he is. That leaves him a bit puzzled. Courtney keeps checking her voice mail, worried about Jason. The doc returns with the amnio and other results. She says the results are fine with the amnio. Carly can't open the paternity results so she asks Courtney to do it.
Sonny pretends to yell at his guy Greg for not stopping Jason from going after Faith. Ric offers to help but Sonny wonders what he could do. He abruptly orders them both out.

Then he says he might not live through the night, which shocks her. She realizes with horror that he's crossed Sonny somehow. She urges him to leave town, but he says he's got to follow it through. He tells her that she's made him happier than he ever thought he deserved to be. Later, Elizabeth phones Ric's answering machine and tells him that she's really worried about him. Then she blurts out that she loves him, surprising herself.
