BORDELLO: The madam of the brothel has brought three pretty blonde women for Jason to choose from. Jason looks at the women and says that no, he obviously didn't make himself clear.

With that, Cletus -- a man with long, gross looking hair, dressed in unkempt clothes, comes rushing in. Jason tries to protest but Cletus picks Sam up and carries her to the backroom. Jason, not wanting to blow his cover, grabs one of the blond women and takes her to the back as well.
THE HOSPITAL: Alexis and Ric have arrived. They discuss the FBI's attempts to find Kristina. Alexis sees a newspaper and takes issue at the headline, in which Faith is referred to as "the Pied Piper." Alexis is worried that Faith isn't taking good care of Kristina. Ric reminds her that Faith is probably keeping all three of the kids healthy, as that is her only leverage against Sonny.
JUSTUS' HOSPITAL ROOM: Faith has come to ask Justus if he still loves her. She starts to cry as she begs him to run away with her -- because when she's with him, everything makes sense and she's not angry at anyone anymore.

THE HOSPITAL: Diego has come to see Brook Lynn, who is working at the desk on the 10th floor. Brook thinks they should spend Sunday evening watching the Oscars at Dillon and Georgie's Oscar party.

She turns to John and tells him that this is his chance to put things right with her -- did he have anything to do with the kidnapping?

He wonders why Em feels the need to punish herself for it?
LUCKY'S HOSPITAL ROOM: Emily has come to sit next to Lucky's bed. She says that she's glad he's breathing on his own again. She wishes that he could just get up and walk around like normal. She starts to cry as she says that she needs him so badly -- if he was with her, supporting her, everything would be easier. She goes onto say that her body feels ruined because of rape...she doesn't want to make Nikolas' life any worse either. She notes that there is only one way to stop it, but that she's afraid to take that step. She ends by saying that wherever she ends up, hopefully he'll be there to comfort her. She grabs his hand and presses it to her cheek.

After she leaves, Sam comes out of one of the rooms...she has bought some time from Cletus, now they have to find Faith. They both leave to start searching.
JUSTUS' HOSPITAL ROOM: Faith can't believe Justus sold her out. Justus tells her that he just wants to help her. She thinks that he never loved her -- that no one has ever loved her. Justus replies that that's not true. Suddenly Brook comes into the room and Faith rushes out past her, while Justus tells Brook to call security, that that was just Faith Roscoe and she is armed.
METRO COURT: John swears to Carly that he would never kidnap her kids -- that he would never hurt any child, least of all his own grandsons. He says that since discovering that Carly was his daughter, he's realized that there are more things important than his job...Carly and the boys are the only family he has. He just wants to help her, not put her at risk. Just then, he gets a call on his cell and he walks to the other side of the room to take it. Carly tells Sonny that she thinks he's telling the truth.

He's incredibly happy that he was right about Lucky suviving on his own, without a machine to help him. He notes that Lucky's friends were wrong in thinking Lucky needed life-support...Lucky's friends think they know him but they don't. Luke points out that he and Lucky are a lot a like, even if no one wants to admit it. He says that the last few hours he has spent with Lucky have made him realize that they should hang out more often...recover lost common ground. Suddenly Skye bursts into the room. She asks if they're okay -- and then tells Luke that Faith is running around the hospital, armed.
THE HOSPITAL: At the nurse's station, Ric is talking to Reese. Ric is anxious to capture her, particularly since Faith is also out for revenge against Alexis. Mac and Sonny both show up.

THE HOSPITAL: Back on the 10th floor, Faith is about to make off in the elevator with Brook as a hostage. Diego wants to exchange himself for Brook. Faith tells him to get behind the desk and to call security, and tell them to clear the exit or Brook will die. Suddenly an alarm goes off. Faith assumes that Diego set it off (from behind the desk, one would assume) and points the gun at him, saying that he'll pay for that. Brook screams in protest.

Luke wonders what she wants him to do about it? Skye thinks that they have done more than their part, when they helped Faith escape from prison months ago.

PENTONVILLE PRISON: Nikolas says it drives him crazy that Emily always tries to see the good in everyone -- even Connor. Elizabeth allows Nikolas to believe that Emily's big secret is that she feels guilty over Connor's death.

THE HOSPITAL: Ric is trying to find Alexis when he is stopped by Faith, who is pointing a gun at him threateningly.
Elsewhere in the hospital, Emily gets a call from Nikolas on her cell phone. He wants her to come and visit him today...he wants them to talk through their issue.

Sonny gets pissed at her and says that he'll finds his kids on his own and he'll break whatever rules he needs to. He tries to leave and she asks him to stay if he has even a little trust in her. He glares at her and then leaves anyway.
Elsewhere in the hospital, Faith is still holding Ric at gun-point. She tells him that she doesn't have much time to tell him "the truth." Ric asks what she's talking about and she brings up his marriage to Elizabeth...the marriage that went south due to them losing their baby when Elizabeth was pushed down the plaza stairs. Ric realizes that Faith was the one to push Liz. He looks both stunned and angry. Faith adds that Ric should tell Alexis that he is the reason Faith stole Kristina in addition to Michael and Morgan. She then hits him in the face with the gun and runs out. Ric tries to get to his feet and calls Mac to let him know that Faith is on the fourth floor and on the move.

Candy says that she has and that she also thinks she knows where Faith might be staying.

THE HOSPITAL: Ric staggers onto another floor. Elizabeth rushes over to him, asking if Faith's the one who hurt him.

THE KIDNAPPER'S HIDEOUT: Jason and Sam enter the house that Faith's henchman was staying in with the kids. There's no one around...but the playpen and a bottle on the floor are evidence that the kids were, in fact, staying there. Sam checks the bottle and notes that it's still cold. That means they aren't far ahead of them.
THE BORDELLO: The madam and some of her girls are lounging around when suddenly there's loud knocking at the front door. The madam answers and finds Michael, who pleads with her to help him.
THE HOSPITAL: Reese is talking to Carly...she wants to know about Sonny, if it's possible that he's on the edge of a breakdown right now. Carly is reluctant to talk to Reese...who then points out that if Sonny is having a breakdown, he will need to be put away for the sake of his kids.
Meanwhile, Sonny finds Faith running down one of the flights of stairs at the hospital. He pushes her up against the wall, holds a gun to her and demands to know where his kids are. Faith tells him that if he kills her, his kids will die lonely and alone. Sonny snaps that he'll take his chances.

Sam plays the role of an experienced prostitute, selling herself as a Texas girl. But at that point, the madam calls another customer to do business with Sam.

Faith tells Justus she never wanted him to get hurt. He reminds her that she kidnapped those three innocent children and urges her to return them. She protests that she will not hurt them. She tells him she did not come to argue. She came to ask him a question. He asks what that is. She asks him if he still loves her. He admits he cannot answer that. But she cries and almost sounds like she has a conscience, telling him she is different around him. And she says he is the only person who ever saw the good in her. She reminds him he risked his life for her. And she asks if he can run away with her. She admits that theyve tried and failed before but they can try again. She tells him they will have everything they need, no craziness, no worries. Just love. But when he does not respond to her offer, she tells him hes betrayed her. And she walks out of his room.

She tells him this is his last chance to get it right with her. She asks him if he took her children.
Elizabeth goes to visit Nikolas. He asks her to tell him what she knows about the secret Emily is keeping from him. She assumes he is on to what really happened hearing him tell her that Emily pulled away from him when he tried to touch her. But he tells her he guesses that the cancer has come back, not that he suspects she was raped. But Elizabeth assures him its not cancer. She explains to him that so much has happened to Emily. And Emily is most recently traumatized over the fact that she killed Connor. He asks her that if Emily killed Connor is self-defense, why then is she blaming herself?
Emily goes to talk to unconscious Lucky. She tells him that shes had so many fantasies and hopes that he would be right back up and ready to be his old self. She cries and admits that maybe she was too optimistic. She tells him that she imagines that he would be there to offer her support just like he did when they were kids. She tells him that her life is falling apart. She tells him what she cannot tell any conscious person about the rape. She admits that Nikolas life is in shreds and she cannot let it get any worse. She takes his hand and kisses it.

She agrees to tell them everything. From where the children are, while they are being watched by the assistant, he seems to know that somebody is looking for them.
Luke assures Skye that she need not be alarmed by Faith. She smiles and tells him shes certain he is right. But she tells him shes pieced together the coincidence that Justus, Faiths only friend, is in a room just across the hall. She knows that Sonny asked Justus to bring the ransom money to Faith. And it appears that Faith shot him. She reminds Luke that it is entirely possible that Faith will ask for their help again, as its very probable that Justus will refuse what she asks. She tells him shes very curious to know just what his policy on Faith Roscoe is, these days. He tells her that when his son is lying here in a coma, the last thing he cares about is Faith Roscoe. She tells him that ordinarily she would agree. But unfortunately, Faith has kidnapped Christina Davis. And she also has Michael and Morgan Corinthos who happen to be Lukes nephews. He asks her what she wants him to do about this. She replies nothing. She reminds him that they have already done their part months ago, when they helped Faith escape from Pentonville.

Elizabeth tells Nikolas about how Emily asked Connor to help free him by having Connor pass himself off as Nikolas and things got out of hand. But she does not reveal to him that Emily was raped. He tells her that he knows Emily has a habit of only seeing the good in people and that is why she was misguided to trust Connor. He concludes that Emily thinks its her fault that Connor Bishop is dead. Never mind the fact that hes a deserter and a mental case and almost destroyed their lives. But Emily probably believes that he would have never been there if she had not asked for his help in the first place. He asks Elizabeth why Emily did not just tell him that. Elizabeth answers that Emily did not tell him that because she believed he had enough to deal with. He asks Elizabeth not to tell Emily that had this conversation.
Faith finds Rick and pulls a gun on him.
Nikolas calls Emily and asks her if she can come and visit him again. He tells her that he feels bad about the way they left things off and needs to make things right.

She tells Elizabeth she knows shes only been trying to help and did nothing wrong.
Luke protests to Skye that although they cut Faith loose, what she has done now is not their problem. Skye says no, its not their problem. Its just Christinas and Michaels an Morgans and their parents problem. But he tells her she must stop beating herself up over this. Faith has a grudge against Sonny Corinthos. It has nothing to do with them.
Agent Marshall tells Sonny he is very foolish to confront and threaten Durant, remembering that Durant is a federal prosecutor and Sonny could get in big trouble. He tells her that Faith Roscoe is a psychopath and he will stop at nothing to do whatever it takes to bring his children back. She tells him if he has one ounce of trust in her he cannot walk away. He says nothing and walks away.
Faith holds the gun to Rick and tells him that he should thank her for the fact that Elizabeth fell down the stairs and lost her baby, because he and Elizabeth were not right for each other. He concludes that she caused Elizabeths fall and let Sonny take the rap for it. He demands to know where the children are. She says nowhere that he will ever find them. But she also tells him that he needs to know that he is the reason why she took Christina. She tells him that because of her problems with Sonny she could have made due with just the two boys. But she went that extra mile just for him. She assaults him and runs off.
