He left on his own, refusing to take them with him. Summer agreed with Lucky on the method of finding her brother, but instead of opting to go on without him, they opted to try something else to waste time, but Summer backed out of the love-making session, pointing out she didnt want Luke to find them and get hurt.
Luke headed down town and made small talk with the bar tender, showing him a picture of Matt. A young woman at the bar recognized the picture, and Luke confronted her, but she refused to help.

Lucky wanted to go talk to her, but Luke sided with Summer, letting her call the shots.
Back at the hotel, Luke and Lucky sat down, Lucky asking his father to remember if he dragged his mother-in-law around when he and Laura went out on their road trips. What is this, pay-back or something? Luke told his son that he wasnt a treat to his love life, to stop looking for trouble.

Jason told Elizabeth that Ric kidnapped Courtney. He pressed her for information about where Ric took her, ordering to get out when she couldnt give them any information. They went through the mines and found one that wasnt numbered but named Adella, as in Sonnys mother. Jason went after her and Carly looked again at the picture, realizing she was looking at Sonnys mother. Carly did some more research as Laticia came in, looking for Michael. Skye called at the opportune moment, letting Carly know where her missing child was. Carly headed directly to the Quartermaines.
She got there and found Michael halfway up the stairs. With AJ on the other side of her, Carly told her son not to believe AJ, who grabbed hold of her wrist. She twisted around, jerking away and began to fall.
Courtney continued to try to escape from her surroundings, unsuccessfully. She fell to the floor, knocking herself unconscious. Jason found her there and tried to wake her up. He got her up just as the hole started to cave in.
Sonny followed his instincts, remembering a time when he was with his mother and a male friend, who handed her a handkerchief with the initials TRL embedded on it. Carly got upset when she realized Sonny went after him on his own. Carly found a picture that she thought she recognized, but Jason came up with more: Lansing Cole and Mineral Company. They agreed Rick must have Courtney hauled up in his mines. Sonny went into the house, cautiously, remembering his mother stepping out of the front door. Once inside, gun in hand he started calling for Ric. Ric came out of the shadows, gun pointed at Sonnys back. Whos back after all these years, he pointed out. Sonny dropped his gun and turned around for Ric. He started asking his questions, wondering why Ric took his sister. Ric pointed out that there were the innocents who always wondered in the face of danger. Ric asked Sonny to take a trip with him to the summer of 1970, when they stayed in the house. Ric pointed out that he owned the house, and Sonny remembered meeting Trevor Lansing, his mothers boss and Rics father. Ric called Sonny a psychopath, telling him that the summer was no vacation. He told Sonny that his career started at the top of the stairs. He remembered his mother and him arguing there over a coat and her falling down the stairs. Ric told him that his mother didnt fall, Sonny pushed her.
