Just then there's a knock on the door -- it's a beautiful woman named Jacina, who is very happy to see Jax -- so happy that she kisses him. Courtney is not impressed.
THE PLAYGROUND: After a few more minutes of talking to Reese about how he is willing to go outside of legal channels to get evidence that will put Sonny away, John realizes that Reese is actually wearing a wire to record their conversation. Reese smiles and says that yes, they now have evidence to get John's badge taken away from him.

JASON'S PENTHOUSE: There's a knock at the door -- it's Monica. She has come to see Jason about AJ. Jason tells Monica that AJ is not getting away this time.
THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Emily and AJ argue in the basement -- AJ points out that he's always been the scorned son in the Quartermaine family and Emily basically talks about what a horrible person and father she thinks AJ is. When she turns to leave, AJ grabs her arm and tries to stop her, prompting Emily to scream and hit him. AJ calls her a bitch and raises his hand to her in anger.

Sonny tells Jason not to let AJ leave.
THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Alan is furious with AJ for almost hitting Emily. AJ is clearly starting to lose all of his self-control...he is frantic and worried that he won't be able to leave before Jason shows up to kill him. He wants to lock Emily in the freezer to keep her from alerting Jason, but Alan stops him and says that this plan has to end. AJ can't believe that Alan, too, has turned on him. He pulls out a gun, points it at them, and warns that it now looks like he might be the only one leaving the basement.

Jacina notes that she could fudge something, but she wants something in return.
THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: AJ warns Alan that he will shoot him if Alan leaves. Alan says he knows AJ would never shoot him in the back -- he turns to leave and says over his shoulder that he knows that deep inside AJ is a good and decent person. Now, Alan says, he is going to go upstairs, find Michael and return him to Sonny and Carly. He starts to leave and AJ actually shoots him, hitting him squarely in the back. Emily screams and Alan falls to the floor.
THE QUARTERMAINE BOATHOUSE: Sonny and Carly have found Michael and are chasing him to the boathouse. He locks himself inside and Sonny busts the door down to go after him. Michael is very angry with them -- he says that he knows they don't want him and he wants them to leave him alone. Sonny says that AJ lied to Michael and that they do want him back.
THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Emily is at Alan's side...Alan is still alive, but looks weak. AJ's momentary concern for Alan is eclipsed by his anger at the things that his family has driven him to over the years. He remembers that he should be escaping with Michael. He takes off, leaving Emily and Alan in the basement.
AJ runs up to the first floor of the mansion, looks around and then starts up the stairwell to find Michael.
Right after AJ runs upstairs, Jason and Sam enter the house. Jason thinks that something has happened -- he can feel it. He gives Sam his gun and sets out to look for AJ and Michael on his own. He starts to go up the stairs.
In the attic, AJ looks for Michael and then leaves. As he exits, some pictures of Michael as a baby can be seen laying on the floor.
Down in the basement, Emily wants to go and get help for Alan, but he begs her not to leave his side.
Back on the stairwell, AJ is starting to go back downstairs when he sees Jason coming up. They glare at one another as AJ points a gun at Jason.
JAX AND COURTNEY'S HOTEL ROOM: Courtney comes back to the hotel room with a drink in hand. She's obviously a bit drunk. Jacina is inside, sitting on the couch with Jax. Courtney is not pleased to see her still there. Jacina says that everything looks settled -- she then leaves. Courtney sits next to Jax on the couch. After talking to him a bit she declares that she wants a list of all of the women that he's ever slept with.
THE PLAYGROUND: Ric tells John that he does plan to take Sonny and Jason down eventually, but he wants the case against them to be solid when he does it. Reese interrupts and requests that they not get side-tracked. They have evidence against John now, and they'll hold it against him as a form of blackmail. John is stuck. He admits to Ric and Reese that he doesn't know who exactly it was that was offering him money to use to take down Sonny -- just that the mystery person wanted to help him do it.
THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Emily tries to tend to Alan's wound using what training she knows from beind pre-med.
THE QUARTERMAINE BOATHOUSE: Michael accuses Sonny and Carly of loving Morgan more than him. Sonny and Carly try to get through to him, but it takes a long time before Michael calms down. Just when it looks like Michael might finally hug Carly, he runs past them instead...they chase after him as he heads back toward the mansion.
THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: AJ and Jason are in a showdown on the stairs. AJ is holding Jason at gun-point. He threatens to shoot Jason, who he calls the golden boy.
JAX AND COURTNEY'S HOTEL ROOM: Jax has made a list of the women he's slept with for Court -- two lists, one in alphabetical order and the other in chronological order. Courtney ends up ripping up the lists...she says she is just feeling insecure because they started out as a bet -- she started out as one of Jax's many conquests. Jax points out that they are more than that now...they love each other. Courtney agrees and he leaves to go get packed. She still looks uncertain as she looks at the ripped up lists.
THE QUARTERMAINE MANSION: Alan starts to have a heart-attack down in the basement...Emily screams for help.
Meanwhile, upstairs, Jason and AJ struggle over the gun as Sam, Monica, Sonny, Carly, Reese and Michael arrive...just in time to see both men fall over the railing and onto the floor below.
