Lorenzo tells Carly that if he were in Sonnys position, hed have two options. Hed either hope that the death of his child would convince all of his colleagues and adversaries that he is no longer a threat and hed make good of his life.

Lorenzo tells Carly that if he had a child and was in love with his mother, he would reform his life for the memory of his child and maybe give up organized crime.

She does the 12-step program. And even with all that negativity working against her, she is absolutely amazing. And this last year would have been unbearably grim for him without her. She tells him in that case he must go on living. He tells her that there have been so many mobs and organizations that have tried and failed to kill him. So he believes that Sonny and his boys will not succeed any better than they have. He indicates that he has packed his bags.

But he tells her right now she will do just fine without him. She asks what if she never sees him again. He tells her he knows she will.

She tells him that would be awesome and admits to him that perhaps the reason shes had trouble focusing is because she does not want to believe that this day is real.
