Georgie confronts Brook Lynn about how insensitive shes been to Lucas. Brook Lynn angrily tells Georgie that this is not about defending Lucas, its about her negative attitude toward Diego.

Lucky and Skye tell Luke that hes going a little too far demanding that Emily lies about being pregnant and telling her that she could get her throat slit if she does not go along with it. Lucky tells his father that he does not believe this has anything to do with Emily. Its all about Lukes obsession over Helena and the Cassadines. Lucky tells his father hes way out of line and leaves. Luke angrily tells Skye that his son is a cop, lives in a simple, programmed little world and hasnt a clue about whats really going on in the world. He starts drinking again and tells Skye that hes so tied of everybody judging his behavior and telling him how to feel. At that point, Skye tells him she cannot deal with him when hes like this, but she believes that that may be just what he wants.
Skye tells Luke that he needs to think about what would happen if Helena either dies or goes to prison for life. Then what? What would occupy his time and life when he no longer gets to chase after Helena and her family? Luke admits that the Cassadines have been the worst thing in his life and cannot imagine a life without Helena threatening him and everybody he cares about. He informs her that his son used to be his best friend. Now he believes that Lucky is a self-righteous pompous ass. He says he no longer has anything left in his life. He would like Helena dead. He says he no longer wants to keep dragging this past of his around. He says he just wants to get on with his life. And he tells Skye that is all because of her.
Courtney goes to Sonnys old place and runs into Jason. She says she was just dropping off some paperwork Although she sounds like shes just there in a strictly business capacity, she tells him that social services might have a major concern about his and Sams cohabitation while raising a baby. He asks if there are laws that will prevent them from having temporary custody of Bridgets baby if they are not married. She replies no. But she implies that shed like to know the nature of his relationship with Sam. He admits that he and Sam are together now. She doesnt admit to him how upset she is but storms out as soon as she hears that and when shes alone, she breaks down crying.
Elizabeth privately asks Emily to talk about how upsetting it is for her to talk about being pregnant. Emily reveals that just the thought of it happening when it probably cant upsets her. And now this plan of Lukes is just a little weird for her. Elizabeth encourages Emily to believe that regardless of that, if she goes along with Lukes plan, then very possibly Nikolas will soon be free and theyll be able to have all the babies they want.
Skye admits to Luke that she is head-over-heals for him. But she knows that he has this powerful history and obsession and it seems like hell stop at nothing to keep this alive. And he somehow wants to keep up this fight with Helena. He assures her that the past is the past and he doesnt want to stay living in the past. He tells her that she means a lot to him. He says shes smart and beautiful and funny and never boring. And from the moment they met, he was captivated. He says he doesnt know what the future holds. But for the first time in so long, he might have a future that is worth looking forward to. Because if shes there, all the rest of this will be worth it.

But Bridget asks her if shes really certain of that. Jax overhears their conversation.
