Shortly Lois strides in and Sonny smiles in disbelief to see his former business partner. He is clearly glad to see Lois and states she can stop by anytime. Carly on the other hand is less than amused and says that a call is always appropriate.
As Sam burns photographs at the penthouse in the fireplace, she checks to see if Jason is back. Unbeknownst to her, Jason has returned to the penthouse while her back was turned and asks her what she is burning.
