Rick goes to question Faith about what has happened to Michael. She asks what his problem is. He got his precious stepdaughter back. What does he care of she killed and buried Michael in a swamp? But he asks her whom she is trying to protect, realizing that she may very well be lying about Michael being dead. He asks her who her accomplice is. He tells her she will not walk away from this. He tells her that if she is telling the truth that Michael is dead, he will make sure that she joins him.
While Carly is in the hospital chapel, Lorenzo enters. The guard tries to restrain him and remove him. But she tells him he must leave Lorenzo alone and that she asked Lorenzo to meet her there. She apologizes to Lorenzo. But he admits to her that hes hurt her more than she knows.
At Sonnys, he is brainstorming with Agent Marshall for leads. She asks him all about the people he comes in contact with to find out who might be helping Faith.

Not far away in the hospital, Steven Webber has discovered Courtneys hair sample which Rachel has extracted from her hairbrush and coated with AJs blood. And he informs Max Scorpio.
Alan tells Jason and Sam that Sonny and Carly have ruined his grandsons life. Having Michael guarded from bullets throughout his life didnt even work. And he says no wonder Michael wound up murdered by Faith. Sam protests that she believes that Faith is working with somebody and very possibly Michael is alive. But Alan tells Jason that were it not for him and Sonny and Carly, Michael would still be alive. And Jason must live with that for the rest of his life. When he leaves, Sam tells Jason that he must not listen to a word Alan says.
Carly assures Lorenzo that he did nothing wrong and is in no way responsible for Faiths escape or what may have happened to Michael. But he confesses to her that he worked with Luke and Skye to help get Faith freed from prison in exchange for ownership of the Haunted Star. Hearing that, she sounds like she doesnt trust Luke but like she does not want to distrust Lorenzo. She asks Lorenzo why he did not tell her this information sooner. He admits that he did not know what to do at the time. But if hed known what Faith would end up doing, hed have killed her himself. He apologizes and leaves.
Rick tells Faith that she has nowhere to run and no deal she can cut after admitting to kidnapping three children and killing one. She tells Rick that he sounds like a hypocrite with what he did. He was ready to abduct Carly and kidnap her child. And she tells him he is in no position to judge her. He admits that she is right. He did a terrible thing. But he corrected his behavior and got his life together. She tells him that marrying Alexis Davis and being stepfather to Sonnys daughter must be sweet. She tells him he may enjoy it while he can. Because he will pay for his mistakes and regret it.
Sonny tells Agent Marshall that its entirely possible that Faith took the kids somewhere and faked their death. They both agree that she must have had a partner. Agent Marshall tells him he must think. Who would be motivated enough to want to help Faith kidnap and have him believe theyve killed Michael? At that moment, Durant enters.
Max Scorpio asks Faiths attending physician if he believes that Faith will recover sufficiently enough to be moved back to Pentonville. The doctor replies yes, she should be.

Unknown to them, Rachels plan has just worked and Steven hasnt a clue that Rachel set Courtney up.
Sam tells Jason that he must not try to justify himself to Alan and he should realize Alan is grieving and saying things he does not mean. He tells her he cannot just sit by not knowing where Michael is. She tells him he must have hope that Michael will be ok but whatever he decides, she will be there to support him.
Rick tells Faith that she deserves to suffer and burn in hell for what she has done. She tells him that he is no better than she is. He is the DA whos had a lot of authority for a long time. But that is about to change. She says when she gets on the witness stand, she will testify to every lurid detail of their relationship. He tells her it was not a relationship. She says she knows that and she will talk all about the way he used and abused her. She will cry and talk about how he psychologically damaged her and drove her over the edge. And she will establish that he is the target of her vendetta, not Sonny or Carly or Alexis. And she will ruin his marriage. At that moment, Alexis enters and tells Faith that it is her marriage too and she will not let Faith do anything to hurt Rick.

Rachel comes and asks Courtney and Jax what is going on. They inform her that Max is interrogating Courtney. Courtney asks Rachel to give her and Jax some privacy. Rachel leaves.
Faith tells Alexis that she may credit her husband for the inspiration. She tells them that she could have limited her efforts to only Michael and Morgan.

When Faith is alone, she gets on the phone and demands that somebody gets her out of there or else she will go to the police and implicate them for what really happened to Michael.
Jason and Sam go through Faiths financial records on the computer. He discovers that she took out millions the night Christina was kidnapped. And there is more of a financial paper trail that implicates that somebody helped her.
Durant tells Sonny its his fault that he lost a grandson he barely got to know. He tells Sonny he failed to protect his son. Carly enters and asks what is going on. Durant tells his daughter that he will get her and Morgan away from Sonny before they end up dead like Michael. Carly tells her father he has no right to say things like that to her husband. She also informs him that there is no evidence that Michael is not alive. She tells him there is no rational explanation for anything Faith does. She is evil. She is a sociopath. But Durant tells her she is in denial about what has happened to Michael. And he tells her she must learn one thing from what has happened and take Morgan and herself and get out of Sonnys home. She says she refuses. But he tells her that he will be there if she needs him. After he leaves, Sonny asks Carly if she believes that Morgan should be removed from his home.

Emily then notices her parents in a big fight and goes to intervene. Elizabeth tells Lucky that he should see what is happening to Emily. She is going out of her way to take care of everybody but herself. He admits that he remembered the night when Connor raped Emily. She denied it. But he knew, just like Elizabeth knew, that it happened.

He informs Faith that he found out about the transactions on the computer, demands to know who is paying her off and what has happened to Michael. But Rick escorts Jason out of the courtroom.
Carly tells Sonny that although they are not married anymore, they are parents together. Courtney enters and hugs Carly and tells Sonny she is so sorry and if theres anything she can do. He tells her he believes that Michael is alive and if she does not believe that, then she should not be there. He leaves and Carly tells Courtney that Sonny is just dealing with his grief. She also tells her that she knows that Michael is alive.. She says she does not care what the FBI or the police think. She is his mother. She knows what she feels in her heart. Michael is alive and hes going to come home.
When Jax returns to Courtneys and notices Rachel alone, she tells him that she attempted to call him and ask him not to come over after shes realized Courtney could not be there.

Rachel tells Jax that she feels so sorry for Courtney. Being implicated for murdering AJ and then having her nephew disappear. She says that although she never met this AJ character, he sounded like a nightmare and she would almost justify somebody for killing him. She tells Jax that she could understand doing something like that herself if she was engaged to a wonderful man like him and then her worthless ex-husband shows up out of nowhere and tries to ruin everything.
