Jason informs Steven Webber that he came across the murder weapon that was probably used to shoot Faith, and he discovered that the shooter must have removed the lens cap. He implies that that probably means the shooter wore glasses. Steven asks Jason if he has somebody specifically in mind. He says if he knows who shot Faith Roscoe, he should take it to the police, right away. Jason tells Steven he will take care of it and walks away.
Agent Marshall tells Lorenzo that she believes he had motive to kill Faith. He tells her he knows she is getting impatient to close the case. But she cannot make him her scapegoat. She implies that she believes he not only wanted to kill Faith but he also had motive to kidnap Sonnys and Carlys kids.
Sonny goes to Faiths room and demands to know where Michael is. But before she can tell him, her machine indicates she is slipping into a coma and dying.
Luke and Skye go to the hospital to see Faith to find out if she knows where Michael is. Emily tells them that there is already a big crowd of people ahead of them, ready to do just that and she tells Luke that maybe he should let Sonny and Carly worry about their son, and he should worry about his own son.
While Agent Marshall calls the cops to take Lorenzo to the station for questioning, he asks her what possible motive he would have to kidnap the children. She tells him he is obsessively in love with Carly and would probably want to get her in a fragile state of mind and then play the hero. And because Faith was ready to implicate him, he attempted to kill her. Rick walks in and tells Lorenzo he better fess up about where Michael is. Lorenzo tells them if he knew, hed bring Michael back himself. Agent Marshall tells Lorenzo that Royo must have been working for him as well as Peavey. But he denies it. Rick tells Lorenzo he better hope that Ricks nephew is still alive, because if he is not, Rick will see to it that Lorenzo gets the death penalty. Lorenzo goes with him to the station
While Sonny goes out to inform Carly, Courtney, Jason and Sam that Faith may be dying or just playing games with him. Jason attempts to inform Sonny that he may have a lead as to Faiths shooter by noticing a missing lens cap on the murder weapon. While they are all waiting outside Faiths room, the uniform cops come to inform them that they have just arrested Faiths accomplice, Lorenzo Alcazar.

He tells her hes not worried about it. But she insists that he talks about what he is feeling. He tells her that he believes she is making efforts to make him feel jealous.
Emily tells Luke that she is angry with him for shutting off Luckys breathing machine and playing God. She says the doctors advised him he could have killed Lucky by doing that. But he tells her that she is very misinformed for somebody who works in a hospital Also, he reminds her that the court granted him authorization to decide what was to be done with Lucky. He remembers she was right there when the ruling was made. So shes wrong medically and legally. But she tells him that he has spent too much time controlling and pushing his son away from him. He tells her that the way he relates to his son is not in her jurisdiction. She tells him that its about time that he starts acting like Luckys father and letting him know he loves him. He tells her she better not lecture him on whom he loves. She tells him he was blessed with a wonderful son. He was almost lost, and then miraculously regained consciousness and got better. And Luke cannot take that for granted and indulge in more pettiness and controlling behaviors toward his son. He lashes out at her and tells her he is also concerned about his son living in the mausoleum with a humorless little package like her. Elizabeth witnesses the conversation and asks Luke if he feels better now.
After Faith has been pronounced dead, Sam tells Courtney that she is not sorry that Faith is dead, only that she did not live long enough to tell Sonny where Michael is. Courtney tells Sam shed like more than anything to believe that Michael is alive and well, but the more time that passes, the more doubtful that seems. Sam tells her she cannot give up hope. But Courtney says she needs to see the difference between hope and denial. She asks when is the right time to stop believing that everything will work out and start seeing the truth and dealing with the grief.
Lorenzo gets taken to the station and goes to the interrogation room. Carly asks the cop if she can talk to Mr. Alcazar alone. Lorenzo asks if she believes that he would kidnap her children. She admits that there is a lot of evidence pointing to him. He tells her that Agent Marshall is grasping at straws. He asks her to sit down. He admits that he loves her and has been obsessed about her in the past. But he would rather never see her again and live with that, than cause harm to her children.
Lucky notices that Elizabeth appears angry although she is trying to hide it. She confesses to him that his father made her upset. She informs him that Emily lectured Luke on wanting him to reach out to Lucky. Lucky asks why Emily bothered. And of course, Luke got defensive and lashed out at Emily. Lucky said what do you expect? Luke Spencer cannot be criticized by anyone. But she tells him that Luke needed to back off and realize that Emily is in a very fragile stat after being raped and that she wanted so much to tell him he was out of line.
Rachel tells Jax that anybody can see that Courtneys loyalty to all people, especially to Jason is one of her most attractive qualities and certainly something Jax values about her. She asks him if he really wants to be with a woman who could turn her back on the love of her life. She then stops herself from saying what she shouldnt have said. She tells him that it was plain to see that Courtney and Jason will always have a connection. At that moment, Courtney walks in and tells Rachel that it seems everywhere she goes, there Rachel is.
Sam asks Faiths doctor if he or any of the other staff could have heard any information from Faith that she did not have a chance to tell Sonny. The doctor says he doubts it since Faith was unconscious throughout most of the time. But he tells her that she may ask the ER team if they know of Faith giving any information about Michael. Brook Lynn appears and asks Sam if theres anything she can do to help. Sam tells her that the night when Christina was kidnapped, everybody falsely implicated her and that may have given Faith more time to kidnap Michael and Morgan.

Lorenzo reminds Carly about the night when Morgan was born, how they were stranded and the power was out. She says of course she remembers his promising her that everything would be ok. He delivered Morgan. She also remembers his giving her his word that he would risk both of their lives in order to save Morgan. And he asks her why she would even question whether he would do anything to put her children in danger. Outside the interrogation room, Sonny tells Rick and Agent Marshall that they either make Lorenzo talk or he will himself. Rick goes in and asks Lorenzo if he wants to make a statement. Lorenzo says he will help in any way with the investigation but he refuses to confess to a crime he did not commit. Outside, Carly protests to Sonny that regardless of what he thinks of Lorenzo, he would never kidnap the children. Sonny tells her that Lorenzo had motives to kill Faith. He tells Carly there is evidence against Lorenzo, which she refuses to see. She reminds him that Sam was a suspect for kidnapping and that was proven false. And she urges him to see that questioning Lorenzo is a complete waste of time. Jason also admits that he does not believe Lorenzo Alcazar did it.
Skye approaches Emily and suggests they go out to dinner together. Emily tells Skye shed love to but has too much work to do.

Jason informs Sonny and Agent Marshall that he detected the lens cap removed from the murder weapon. He says he believes the shooter would be Peter Aaron, the professional hit man who wears glasses and would need a special scope for the rifle. He says it sounded like Faith was trying to say Aaron. But Sonny suggests its possible she was trying to say Alcazar. Agent Marshall says they cannot eliminate any possibilities and she and Jason go off. Carly tells Sonny that she does not believe for a minute that Lorenzo Alcazar had anything to do with the kidnapping or the shooting. He tells her she can believe what she wants. But he has to do what he has to do. He leaves.
Skye tells Elizabeth that shes been able to piece together from witnessing hers and Luckys conversations with Emily that Emily was raped. Elizabeth admits thats true but its near to impossible to get through to Emily and get her to talk. She says she knows that Emily blames herself and is ashamed. Skye angrily tells Elizabeth that the only person who should be blamed and ashamed is Connor Bishop. She says if Connor were not already dead, shed kill him herself.
Luke goes to talk to Lucky. Lucky confronts his father for upsetting Emily. Luke says all he did was point out that maybe she was sticking her nose in somebody elses business. Lucky tells him thats typical Luke Spencer who believes hes never wrong. He angrily tells his father hed better leave Emily alone. Luke tells Lucky that he may move in with Emily or do whatever he wants. But maybe Emily needs to leave him alone with her viewpoints in her shallow, self-righteous little world. Lucky tells his father that maybe he should listen to himself some time and see who is really holier than thou and disrespectful to others. He says that Emily saved him and did not pull a switch that could have killed him. Luke says thats great. Lucky may move in with her and they may console each other with righteous indignation and bible studies.

By the time hes 15 he will hate his father like all kids do. She apologizes for not watching Christina and indicates that she blames herself for his children getting kidnapped. But Sonny firmly tells her it was not her fault. Faith Roscoe and Lorenzo Alcazar kidnapped the children and nobody and nothing could have stopped them.
After Rick has gotten done interrogating Lorenzo, he admits to Carly that Lorenzo might very well be innocent but he must not rule out the possibility nor see the evidence pointed against Lorenzo. Carly asks to talk to Lorenzo again. She tells him that very possibly there will be a break that could divert suspicion from him. He asks if it will ever be over. She informs him that Jason is onto a lead involving a guy named Aaron and if they can get him to talk, it might all be over soon.
At that moment, Jason and Agent Marshall go to a house, find Aaron, shoot at him, and he falls to the floor.
