Steven tells Courtney that maybe she should talk to Rachel even if she is unconscious. Jax enters and ask Courtney if she really thinks its a good idea to talk to Rachel after all that has happened.

At the hospital, Dillon runs into his mother. Tracy tells him that she knows hes there to see Georgie. He tells her that is not true. She tells her son he is a lousy liar and if it is true that he is not there for that reason, then when their little candy striper appears, they can wave at her and say goodbye. She reminds him that Georgies father has forbidden him to see her. She reminds him that she knows that he and Alan both want to divulge Alans driving drunk and hitting Ric and Alexis. But she needs him to keep his mouth shut about Alans secret. If he does, then she will keep her mouth shut about his private meetings with Georgie. And she will also pay for his filming school.

He tells her that she is holding his romantic and artistic future hostage. He asks her what is wrong with telling the truth. She tells him that honesty complicates life. And his life is complicated enough. And that is why she has promised that he will not breath a word about Alans secret. He tells her that he does not appreciate her scheming with everything in order to have leverage. But she tells him he will thank her one-day and encourages him to have fun with Georgie.

Elizabeth and Lucky talk about Emily and how they are supposed to help her get through her recovery. He asks Elizabeth about her own recovery and what helped her get through the best. She says that he was the best thing she had.

She tells him he must not blame himself for what happened to Michael. But he urges her not to let him off the hook. He tells her that he told himself, after Michaels death that he would not cover for a wrong doing again. She asks him specifically what is on his mind. He blurts out to her that her father was driving drunk and hit Ric and Alexis when they were driving out to inspiration point.
Elizabeth and Lucky relive their romantic history. He tells her sometimes he wishes he could roll back the clock just so he could be with her. She says she wishes that too. But the only thing she would not give up would be her baby. Although they talk about their relationship in past tense, they both agree that they do not feel as though its really over.
Carly and Lorenzo go outside and run into Jason. She is so relieved that hes gotten out of the station. She tells him she was worried that he was in a line-up and she was ready to go ballistic. But she tells him Lorenzo told her that would not be a good idea. She also informs him that the witness whom Reese called to identify him was Maria, the mother of Lorenzos son. Jason indirectly realizes that Lorenzo is not out to get him in trouble and is encouraging Maria not to do so either. Jason leaves and Carly thanks Lorenzo for his discretion and his help.

She cannot answer and walks away. He calls out to her. But she will not talk.
Emily finds Tracy and tells her that she remembers that Tracy came crawling back to the Quartermaines without a dime in her pockets after years of being away. She tells Tracy she used to feel sorry for her. But now she believes that Tracy is a despicable piece of trash beyond pity. She tells Tracy that Lila loved her because her grandmother was a kindhearted person. She demands that Tracy stops blackmailing Dillon for the hit and run. Or else she will run Tracy out of the Quartermaine house and out of the family.
Elizabeth tells Lucky that she was always in love with him and that never changed even after he changed his feelings for her. He tells her he never lost his feelings for her either, although many things happened in his life. And he asks her officially if she will give him another chance. He also tells her that if she wants him to wait, he will wait as long as is needed. At that moment, he kisses her. It looks like they are ready to take off their clothes and make love.
Reese asks Maria why she did not ID Jason Morgan. Maria replies that she did not see him run up the stairs.
