After hearing Lorenzos offer to run away together, Carly tells him although she does not mind being a fugitive, she cannot do that to her boys. She says its not unlike what AJ did to Michael. He asks her what kind of a life Michael will have if he sees his mother go to prison. He asks her why she will not at least do this for her sons. When she does not answer, he concludes that this is not so much about her boys but about Sonny. She says she cannot take them away from their father. She tells Lorenzo she will always be grateful to him and believes he in an amazing man but she must take her chances in Port Charles.
Sonny tells Jason that kids learn from examples. And he taught his to kill. Jason tells Sonny that he has his own responsibility in this also. Sonny tells Jason that from what Michael has seen them both do throughout his life, they might have just as well put the weapon in his hands. He tells Jason that kids dont miss a beat. They hear things. They see things. They understand. He also asks how they can blame Michael. He did what they were ready to do. He just beat them to it. Jason tells Sonny that they cannot change who they are. Sonny tells Jason that sometimes you do not see it coming. Sometimes you do not realize how much has changed your life until later. Sometimes its years. But its that right then that defines everything from that moment on. He says the day his stepfather got killed, he admitted that since he beat Sonnys mother, he wanted him dead. He tells Jason that the justice that was given to him when his stepfather died was his moment; his point of no return. Jason tells Sonny that when he and AJ ran into a tree in car, that was the point of no return for him.
