COURTNEY'S LOFT: Courtney tells Jax that her heart is telling her to try to find a way to make him stay with her. They start making out -- suddenly Courtney pulls away and says that she can't do this.

JASON'S PENTHOUSE: Emily has come to Jason's penthouse -- she asks him for his help in freeing Nikolas from Helena's clutches.

SHADYBROOK: Helena comes into Nikolas' room to ask how he's doing. He tells her that he realizes now that he is Prince Nikolas Cassadine. Helena is thrilled, and she says that now that he's aware of his rightful place in the family, they must keep him safe from those who would destroy him.

THE POLICE STATION: Ric and Justus are in the interrogation room -- Justus is accusing Ric of abusing the system in order to get revenge on Sonny. Alexis comes in and tells Justus that Sonny deserves to be in jail and it's Ric's job to put him there. Just then, Sonny arrives and tells them all that Faith has been found knifed in her cell. Ric asks Sonny if the knifing happened on Sonny's orders.

COURTNEY'S LOFT: Courtney admits to Jax that she does want him, but that she also has feelings for him, and that she doesn't think she would be able to handle it if they slept together and then he left for months on end to go on the business trip. Jax tells her that he'll cancel the trip -- of course, what he doesn't know is that Courtney has figured out that the "trip" was all a ploy on his part. When he suggests skipping business, she looks triumphant.

THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Lois is sitting in the main room of the Quartermaine mansion when Alice escorts Lorenzo inside. Lois explains that she has asked Lorenzo here in order to get him to sign a contract letting Sage sing at L&B -- and she wants Alice to standby as a witness. Lorenzo observes that Lois just doesn't trust herself to be alone in the room with him.

JASON'S PENTHOUSE: Jason agrees to get Nikolas out of Shadybrook, and to bring him home to Emily. Emily asks him to please be careful, as they have no idea what trials Helena has been putting him through.

SHADYBROOK: Nikolas asks Helena why she won't let him out of Shadybrook and she tells him that she is trying to keep him safe from Emily Quartermaine -- she feels that Emily would only turn on him in the end.

THE POLICE STATION: Ric returns from getting a report on Faith -- he tells Alexis, Sonny and Justus that Faith has been taken to the hospital so her injuries can be treated. Sonny thinks that Faith knifed herself in order to get to a place where she can escape. Justus leaves in order to be by Faith's side. Alexis leaves as well (after calling Sonny a "monster" for his inability to see Faith as a human being). That leaves the two brothers alone. Ric tells Sonny that finally Alexis sees him for the monster that he really is.

SHADYBROOK: Helena tells Nikolas that she plans to take him out of the country in order to get him away from both Emily and Alexis, who she feels will use whatever power she has to get control of the Cassadine estate. Nikolas assures her that he knows who he is now, and what his duty is.

COURTNEY'S LOFT: Courtney pretends to try to talk Jax into going on his business trip, but he tells her that what he really wants is to stay with her. Courtney reveals that she knew all along that he was never going out of the country to begin with. Jax is caught.

THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Lois accuses Lorenzo of being a gangster pretending to be nice in order to get under her skin. She asks him to prove that he can be trusted.

KELLY'S: Tracy has come to see Heather...she declares that Heather has "won" -- when Heather tells Tracy that she doesn't know what Tracy's talking about, Tracy invites her to have dinner with the Quartermaines.

Meanwhile, outside the diner, Carly approaches Kristina (who is with her nanny) and compliments Kristina on her outfit. At that moment, Alexis shows up -- she is flustered when she sees Carly interacting with her daughter, and sends Kristina and the nanny inside Kelly's. Once she and Carly are alone, Alexis tells Carly to stay away from Kristina.

THE POLICE STATION: Ric and Sonny are arguing about Alexis. Sonny thinks that Ric is chasing after Alexis simply because of Sonny and Alexis' one-night-stand...he also assures Ric that he has no feelings for Alexis, so it doesn't concern him to see Ric and Alexis spending time together. Ric tells Sonny that Sonny is a threat to everything that Alexis holds dear. Sonny asks him what he means by that.

COURTNEY'S LOFT: Courtney explains to Jax that she found out from the airport that not only was Jax not scheduled to leave the country...his private plane was currently getting repairs done. Jax admits that he lied about the trip to get her to sleep with him. Jax and Courtney begin to argue -- he accuses her of being scared of her feelings for him, feelings that she claims do not exist. Jax tells her that by the time he has won the bet, Courtney will be begging him to sleep with her. He then leaves, while Courtney fumes.

THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Lois and Lorenzo continue to spar until Lorenzo finally signs the form releasing Sage to sing at L&B. Lois is thrilled, and believes that this concludes their business arrangement, but Lorenzo points out that as Sage's guardian, he'll be around L&B a lot more in order to supervise he and Lois haven't quite finished with one another yet.

SHADYBROOK: Jason shows up at the institution, much to Helena's surprise, and strong-arms her into a room -- which he then locks, while she pounds on the door to no avail. Then he goes in to see Nikolas...Nik asks him why he's come, and Jason replies that he's here to get him out.

KELLY'S: Carly asks Alexis what's up with her attitude -- why she's going around attacking Sonny and attacking her for speaking to Kristina...she wants to know what happened to Alexis' gratitude. Sonny comes over to them and asks what Alexis should be grateful for. Carly and Alexis both refer to the time they spent together in the fire. Kristina and her nanny come outside, ready to go -- Sonny says hello to Kristina, and then Kristina, Alexis and the nanny leave. Carly notes that Kristina will grow up to be as neurotic as Alexis. Sonny thinks that Kristina is sweet.

Meanwhile, inside Kelly's, Felicia comes in and meets up with Tracy, who invites her to have dinner at the Quartermaine mansion.

THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Courtney has arrived to see Edward in regard to her foundation, to which Edward intends to make a donation. Courtney asks him why he's being so generous, considering that they have had their differences in the past (when Courtney was married to Edward's grandson, AJ). Lois comes in and tells Courtney that Edward is trying to use the foundation as a way to cheat his way into getting Lila's money.

SHADYBROOK: Jason argues with the doctor on staff who has been treating Nikolas and gets her to release Nikolas into his custody by threatening to incite unions strikes at the institution. Once Nik's release is secure, he turns to Nikolas and tells him that they can leave, but Nikolas doesn't want to go anywhere with Jason -- and he doesn't want to see Emily, either.

THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Courtney and Lois are talking about the fact that Edward tried to use the foundation to win Lila's money. They talk about how men turn on the charm in order to get what they want out of women -- Lois brings up Lorenzo and Courtney tells Lois that she will help her get Lorenzo out of her life once and for all.

KELLY'S: Carly and Sonny are sitting at a table outside of Kelly's. Carly talks to Sonny about Morgan's hospital checkup and then mentions that she might like to begin looking for her birth-father. Sonny brings up the fact that sometimes long-lost relatives don't turn out the way you expect them to be.

THE POLICE STATION: Ric and Alexis are talking about Faith, and about the kind of case that Ric intends to build up against her -- whether or not he'll drag his feet in order to give Sonny the time needed to take her down once and for all.

THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Lois and Courtney discuss Lorenzo, and how Lois feels like she should stay away from him. Then they change topics and talk about Court's relationship with Jax. At first Courtney argues that Jax is nothing to her, and that she wants to be finished with the bet soon so she never has to deal with him again -- then she admits that she's a bit on "Jax overload." (At this point, Jax is eavesdropping on their conversation from a hidden area of the patio.) She goes on to say that she has started having dreams about being in bed with Jax and having the most incredible sex ever. Jax looks amused to hear this.

KELLY'S: Edward and Heather are in the main room of the house talking, which leads to a kiss. Felicia comes into the room, startling them both.

SHADYBROOK: Jason continues to try to get Nikolas to come out of his room and to leave the institution. But Emily shows up and things go from bad to worse as Nikolas reacts violently to her presence.

THE HOSPITAL: Kristina has just had her checkup with the doctor, and Alexis has arrived to pick her up. The doctor talks to Alexis about how Kristina is doing (apparently Kristina is a picky eater who needs to eat more). Alexis cuddles with Kristina and tells her that she loves her a lot.

KELLY'S: Sonny and Carly are still sitting outside of Kelly's, discussing the fact that Carly wants to find her father, despite the fact that he'll probably turn out to be nothing more than one of her mother's johns from when Bobbie was a prostitute. At that moment, Ric shows up -- Sonny is not happy to see Ric, who remarks that Sonny should be out taking his kids for a walk -- he pauses and asks Sonny exactly how many kids Sonny does have. Sonny glares at him.
