But he and Sonny agree that it will not do any good. Sonny admits that the security system is currently shut down. She demands to know why he did not tell her that. He tries to explain to her why they cannot involve the police. She asks him if he is trying to tell her that if they involve the police, the kidnapper will kill Christina?
Brook Lynn tells Diego that Christina is practically her little sister and she let Christina get kidnapped. He tells her she must not blame herself nor believe that she got Christina kidnapped. But she tells him that it was her idea to insist the children go upstairs. She says she put Christina to bed in this room where there was easy entry from outside, and she left her alone and she got kidnapped. But he assures her that it was not her fault.

Jason then calls Brook Lynn and Diego in and asks Brook Lynn what she knows. She explains that she put Christina to bed and closed the door to the outside. He asks if shes sure the doors were shut. She says of course because it was freezing. He asks what any of them know about the door to the hallway. They all consider the possibility that somebody could have snuck in through the hallway door.
When Carly enters to take Michael home, Alexis lashes out to her and to Jason about how Sonny does not care about her daughter as much as he cares about Carlys children.

Jax presents an engagement ring and asks Courtney to marry him.
Alexis tells Brook Lynn that she does not hold her responsible for this. She stepped out of the room and left Christina unattended for only a few minutes and should not believe its her fault.

Jason asks the computer guy what he might know about the programming or whoever else might be able to have the means to spy upon them.
Carly comes in and asks Sonny where Jason went. Sonny replies hes tracking down a lead. Right away, she seems to know that he must be tracking down Sam. Sonny replies that what hes heard is that Sam is in Miami.Carly informs Sonny that she knows that Jason ran into Sam in an alley way recently and she is not in Miami after all. She enlightens him to the theory that since Sam lost two babies, she might have perfect motive to kidnap a child. She suggests that maybe Sam just snapped.
Courtney takes Jax ring and tells him she does not believe this. He asks her if she is trying to say yes, she will marry him. She informs him that she knows he wants children and she may never be able to have any. He tells her that they can always adopt.

Carly privately tells Michael that he is very strong and very brave but its ok to be scared. And she tells him that he did not say a word all during the trip home. But he tells her that there would be no way for somebody to reach a ladder up to the room where Christina was taken. He implies that it was his fault for leaving Christina alone. Carly holds her son in her arms and tells him he is not to blame.
Sonny and Jason brainstorm, naming all the people who might have access to computer codes and who might know how to crack the safe. But Sonny tells Jason he may forget all other suspects. He tells him he knows of one person who might have the means to get into the safe and whom Jason might want to protect. He means Sam. And he demands to know why Jason did not tell him that he saw Sam earlier that night.
In her private room, Sam gets her coat on and zips up her purse with the money, ready to leave.
