But he tells her he cannot delay and asks Justus for his help.

She tells them all that AJ has done terrible things to Courtney for a long time. Tracy concludes that AJ will not be bothering Courtney any longer. Jax comes to get Courtney, tells them there is no proof and they must leave her alone. She tells him that he was right that she should not go there to try to plead her case to them.

Agent Marshall tells Sonny of the perfect timing the kidnapper implemented and the fact that theres been no ransom letter. For that reason she believes its a woman who has personal issues with Sonny. She presents the theory that if Lorenzo Alcazar was out to inflict revenge upon Sonny, for example, would he not want money or some sort of business corruption more than to take Sonnys child?

Sonny tells Agent Marshall that if she knows so much about his history, why doesnt she just tell him her theory? She lists chronologically, the women hes been entangled with throughout his life. She first names Karen Wexler, a stripper, who probably got addicted to drugs because of Sonny. She also lists Sonnys ex-wife, Lily. He tells her that both of those two women are dead and if shes saying theres some sort of supernatural thing going on with Christinas kidnapping, he does not buy it. But she says shes just listing his pattern with women. She mentions Brenda, one if his more volatile girlfriends. Did she not end of in a psyche ward because of him? Also Hannah Scott. She asks how hes doing so far. He says hes fascinated. She also mentions his ill-fated relationships with Sam, Alexis, Faith Roscoe and even Carly. At that moment, Carly enters.

And he was lying in a bed like this, begging to die but nobody would let him go and he could not put himself out of his misery. And he says his son could be going through that right now. He asks Justus to petition the court for him to remove Luckys life-support. But Justus refuses to help him and tells him he has different values about life and death. Luke tells Skye he will find another lawyer. She tells him she knows hes afraid but pulling the plug on Lucky is not the answer. She tells him theres always a chance he could recover and ending that chance for him is wrong. He tells her she must not talk to him about what is wrong.

He says he has no way to save Laura by putting her out of her misery. But he can and he will save Lucky.
When Alexis is in her hospital room, Rick comes to see his wife and asks Brook Lynn what happened. She hesitates to answer him. She talks about how Alexis was in a struggle with Sam.

Agent Marshall explains to Carly her theory of the person who kidnapped Christina being a woman and somebody who knows the most sensitive spots in Sonnys life and that the best way to hurt him would be through his children.

After hearing Carlys theory about Faith Roscoe, Agent Marshall is able to piece together Faiths personality and motives and possible intent for kidnapping Christina in order to inflict revenge upon Sonny. Sonny tells her if she wants to find information about Faith, she might want to contact Justus Ward. Justus might know a lot about what Faith is and where she is. And he tells her that if she finds any evidence that Faith took his daughter, she must come to him first. When Sonny leaves, Carly privately tells Agent Marshall that she needs to know that Faith is a sociopath. Knowing how trigger happy Agent Marshall is, Carly warns her that if she becomes similarly hasty toward Faith, Faith must act in a desperate manner by murdering Christina. And if that happens, it will destroy Sonny and Carly will be sure to make Agent Marshall pay.
With Christina, Faith holds a black ribbon and tells her that its time to show daddy that they mean business.

He sounds like he might want to put his trust in Agent Marshall after all. Carly asks if he really believes she is as good as she says she is. He admits that he is not sleeping, feels this rage that Faith Roscoe or some other whack-job walked into his house and took his child and theres nothing he can do.
