Sonny notices Reese leaving his home. He sees her walking outside the gates and follows her to the street. She walks toward her car but as soon as she opens the car door, it blows up.
At the hospital, Carly tells Lorenzo that maybe grief counseling is the best way to go. She then asks him if when he told her that he believed her that Michael was still alive, was he really trying to be supportive or was he just telling her that Michael is alive because he though its what she wanted to hear? He replies that he knows that Michael is alive and he believes it because he knows she believes it so strongly.
AJ brings an Atlas to Michael and asks him to pick a destination. Michael asks him why. AJ says he wants to take him on a trip around the world, just the two of them. He tells Michael he can make a reservation on line, they can choose where to go and hit the road. Michael asks AJ how long they can be gone. AJ says as long as they want. There is no one to miss them. Its just the two of them and they are the only family theyve got now. Saying that, AJ sounds happy. But Michael does not appear that way.
After Reese has been knocked to the ground after the explosion, Sonny tries to help her. She is unconscious and unable to move.
At Kellys Tracy asks Dillon what on earth he was thinking. Why did he tell Emily about Alans hit and run? Dillon replies that Alan is Emilys father and she deserved to know. Tracy asks her son if he wanted Emily to inflict her self-righteous pious right-and-wrong attitude from knowing that. Dillon replies that at least, Emily knows the difference, which is more than some people do. Tracy asks her son if he is implying that about her. She tells him that all she did was ask him to see Alan through a difficult time. He angrily tells her that Alan almost pushed Ric and Alexis off a cliff and killed them. She tells him that families stick together in times of crises or didnt Emily explain that to him? He tells her that he knew that what Alan did was wrong. She tells him that guilt is only for other people and not for her. He asks her if she really knows what a bad influence she is on him. She asks him if Emily has convinced him that she is the enemy. He tells his mother that this has nothing to do with Emily. She tells him that she should have seen this coming; she has been way too lenient to him and has been giving into his every whim. He tells her that he wishes that just once they could have a conversation about his feelings instead of about her. She tells him she has no interest in hearing him talk about how shes ruined his life. And if he really believes she is such a terrible mother, then maybe he should have Emily pay for his film school. She tells him he is trying to attack her and she will not stand for it. She tells him he is a selfish, obnoxious brat who has never appreciated a thing she has done for him. Just then, Georgie steps in and tells Tracy she is the mother from hell.
Lucky goes to see Elizabeth at the hospital and tells her that he has big plans to be with her. She tells him she wants to go home and be with her baby. But he tells her she must be able to find somebody to watch Cameron. She admits that she wants to be with him. So Emily offers to watch Cameron so they can be together.
AJ tells Michael that they can start the around-the-world trip in England. He suggests that they sleep in a castle. Michael suggests Spain. AJ talks about Italy. Hearing that, Michael tells him about Jason reading to him about a town in Italy. He tells him that he wrote a book report on the book Jason showed him and he got an A+ and was so proud. He makes it clear that he has so many memories that he cannot forget. AJ tells Michael that it is good that he has his memories even if they dont work out the way he expected. He tells him he should always hang onto his memories. Michael admits to AJ that he wishes he could forget all about his memories.
At the hospital, Carly keeps working on Lorenzo by asking him if he is just telling her what she wants to hear. He tells her that is not the case. She then asks him how he would know if she is not losing it. She says that Sonny believes that Michael is gone and asks why she cant. He tells her she just needs proof one way or another. She tells him in that case, then maybe theres something they overlooked. She asks him if he has any information or proof or if he can lead her to finding out anything about Michael. She asks if he knows anything that he is not telling her. Hearing that, Lorenzo tells her that is enough. He says he knows that she is accusing him of kidnapping her son and they are right back where they started. She admits to him that she knows that he would never hurt her children. But he tells her that she believes that he would plan this whole thing so he can bring Michael back to play the hero and win her love.
Sonny tells unconscious Reese that if she dies, the enemies will win and so he will not let her die.
Georgie tells Tracy that Dillon loves her in spite of her many faults but she is totally wrapped up in herself and has no consideration for her son. Tracy tells Georgie she is not interested in her opinion. Georgie tells her shes going to hear it anyway. She says Dillon told Emily about Alans accident because it was the right thing to do. Tracy tells Georgie that her son distrusted her. Georgie replies to Tracy that she does not deserve to be trusted. She tells Tracy she had no right to ask Dillon to cover for a crime that could have gotten him in trouble. Tracy says all she did was ask her son to do a favor for her and clearly he has no consideration for his mother. And so she does not believe that she should waste any of her money on that ridiculously expensive film school Dillon wants to attend. Georgie tells Tracy that if she does not want to pay for Dillons school, then he will find somebody else who will. She will even help him herself if need be. Tracy leaves and Georgie apologizes to Dillon but tells him she could not help it. She tells him its not enough that his mother would ask him to do something so unreasonable. But she has to threaten his future. Dillon tells his girlfriend that does not matter because he no longer wants to go to the film school anyway.
Emily arranges to stay with Cameron for Elizabeth while she goes and has a good time with Lucky. She assures Elizabeth that she loves spending time with Cameron and is very happy that Elizabeth and Lucky are back together.
AJ tells Michael that his memories wont always hurt like they do now. In time, they might just be like something somebody puts away in an old scrapbook that you forget after time goes by. He tells him its much the same as how a cut heals after one hurts oneself. He says that at first, it seems like memories will never get out of your head. But not long thereafter, they become so much less important. He tells Michael that he knows how to help things go better. He just needs to think of the future and new people who he knows cares about him and will be there for him. Michael asks if he means himself. AJ tells Michael that ever since he knew that Michael was his son, he wanted to make him very special in his life. Michael reminds him that that is the very same thing that Sonny told him.

And he tells her for the last time that he did not kidnap Michael, he has no clue where Michael is or even if he is alive. He believed what she told him. But he tells her there is not enough time or support or love in this world for her to believe in him. He tells her that throughout all this time, he wanted to be with her and believed that they could be so good together. But now he knows that that time will never come.
