In the courtroom, Alexis sits with Rick representing her while Sonny is on the other end of the courtroom with his lawyer. Rick asks Alexis what her reason was for taking Christina away and risking legal consequences. She says she is very worried about what is all too common for anybody who is connected to Sonny Corinthos. She reflects upon how she was very scared after her nephew, Nicolas got shot and she realized that Sonny Corinthos is the target of gunshots and murder attempts throughout his life. Sonnys lawyer calls objection about the irrelevance of Nicolas situation to Alexis concerns about Sonny. Alexis says that that she knows that Christina has bonded with her and for reasons that have nothing to do with Sonnys lifestyle, being taken away from her and given to anybody else will devastate Christina. She says Christina is too little to have her heart broken. And because she loves her daughter, Christina needs to be in a home where she is safe and where she has her mother. Sonnys lawyer cross-examines Alexis asking if shes clear about alleging that Christina would be in a safer and more stable environment as a fugitive, on the run with Alexis than she would be with her father who saved her life and who has been a good father to two other children.
Right when Lois is ready to leave Lorenzos apartment, she tells him she wants to get to know him better. He tells her he believes she is very generous and he wants to see her again. They kiss and act very happy to have been together. Unknown to them, however, Maria is outside the hallway looking at them.
Dillon and Georgie go to Courtneys looking for Diego, afraid that Diego is taking matters into his own hands by confronting Lorenzo Alcazar.
Sonnys lawyer inquires to Alexis about her intent to illegally take Christina from Sonny. She also mentions how Alexis husband, Rick had her client falsely arrested and handcuffed. The judge doesnt want to hear that. So she goes on to reflect upon Alexis own track record of being dangerous herself when she is judging Sonny in that regard. Alexis angrily tells her that all those arguments make no difference when what is at stake is a little girl. She says her daughter is 2 years old, she is beautiful and precious and has her whole life ahead of her. And that man over there (Sonny) could get her killed.
Lucky contacts Mac and tells him hes worried about Connor Bishop still in town. Mac asks him why Connor gives him cause for alarm. He says that he believes Connor wants to hurt Nicolas.
Emily goes into Nicolas room and asks if while they were operating on him after being shot, did he feel her reaching out to him? She tells him that if he does not feel the connection between them, then she will accept that they should not be together. Hardly able to speak, he reveals to her that hes had dreams about her and admits that he doesnt want her to leave. She says she will never leave and she loves him so much. She kisses him and tells him they will get through this together.
Courtney goes to find Diego. She urges him to wait and not go through with his plan. Jax informs him that if he messes with Lorenzo Alcazar, he could get himself killed. Right at that moment, they discover a gun in his pocket.
Lorenzo opens his door and sees Maria. He asks how she can just walk into his home after abandoning him when he almost died all those years ago. She inquires if he plans to kill her.
Rick cross-examines Sonny, asking if he knows Christinas favorite food or book or song. Sonny admits he does not know that but asks Rick if hed know. He tells Rick that because hes had no chance to get to know Christina, he couldnt possibly know those things about her. But he knows all those things about the two children hes raised. His lawyer comes and asks him what he feels is best for Christina. Sonny replies that he believes she needs her father but also her mother. So he believes the best arrangement should be joint custody.
