Luke sits by the fireplace and tells Skye that sometimes inspiration flows from places where youd never expect to find it. He tells her one example is Carly. She was pretty savvy to marry Lorenzo Alcazar. She knew that he was filthy rich. And she walked away with a big payment. Skye tells him that he looks pretty sure of himself. He tells her he feels pretty ok. She asks why Carly didnt just hang onto Lorenzos money. He tells her that Carly made the right choice. Why would she want to remain married to Lorenzo and ineffective when she can have all the power of shareholding of ELQ? Skey tells Lorenzo that shes not about to double-cross Jax. She reveals that she believes that Jax got double-crossed by Courtney and Nikolas. He lost his baby. And now Carly is trying to double-cross him. He informs her that Jax is not so innocent and he knows that Jax is ready to pay to keep the truth hidden.

But he grabs her and reveals his identity to everybody in the OR. He laughs and tells them that he likes this. He holds Carly hostage.

Jax comes to the Quartermaines. Tracy asks him how he made it all the way there in the snow. He tells her hes there to see her. He tells her shes the only person who can help him. She tells him she would offer him a hot toddy but Alice no longer serves anybody except Luke. Jax asks her if its true that Luke will not divorce her until she coughs up 15 million dollars. She asks if he has anything on Luke. Jax informs her that Luke wants to help Carly into partnership of the metro court. And hed like to get Luke out of the equation. She tells him that for monetary reasons shes not about to divorce her loathsome husband.
Sonny tells Manny he better let go of Carly and get out of the OR or he will blow Mannys head off. Manny laughs and reminds them that hes shut off all the power. He also tells them that the only light they will have will enable them to see Carly bleed to death if Sonny does not put down the gun.
Luke returns home. Tracy informs him of the very interesting meeting she had with Mr. Jax. Lulu then comes out and informs her father that Tracy refused to help Jax disarm Luke from helping Carly take over the metro court.

But right then, Sam comes behind him and knocks him over. But he runs after Carly and catches her again. Sonny then holds the gun on him. Manny demands that Sonny drops it.

She tells him that from now on, he will toe her line. Lulu tells Luke that she will never see Tracy as her stepmother. She reminds her father that she has a mother. And she has not forgotten her, unlike some people. She asks her father why the two of them have to move all around and know that nobody likes them.

She then tells her that she wants to get on with her life. She tells her that its all too common to yearn for that one true love. But when you do that, it consumes you.

She informs her that Lulu has a little problem with theft involving wallets and cars and jewelry. Skey asks Tracy what she has done. Right then, the cops come and inform Lulu that they have a warrant for her arrest. Skye protest that there must be some sort of mistake. Tracy says there is no mistake. She knows that Lulu stole $15 thousand from her. And the cops may take her and hold her in the station until when or if her father comes and bails her out.
