Carly overhears Reese and Sonny talking inside the penthouse and bursts through the door, despite Jasons efforts to restrain her. Shes livid that Sonny would offer their familys former home to his bimbo. Sonny explains to Carly that the penthouse is his and he can rent it to whomever he chooses, and she needs to get the hell out. Jason tries to calm Carly but also reprimands Sonny for the harsh way he speaks to her. After an intense verbal assault on both Sonny and Reese she calls Reese a hooker and points out places in the penthouse where she and Sonny made love Carly leaves and tells Sonny that Reese is playing him and he deserves everything he gets.
Later Carly tells Jason that although she has been jealous of other women in his and Sonnys lives, this time is different. Reese is out to get her and is infiltrating herself in every aspect of Carlys life her ex-husband, Michael, and now her mother Bobby. Jason tells Carly shes being paranoid, but Carly says that Reese is acting the same way that she did when she first came to town and wanted to take from Bobby everything that mattered to her. I guess it takes one to know one.
Reese is shaken up but admits that Carly has some points. She even understands why Carly feels betrayed and violated. She asks Sonny if he offered her the penthouse to make Carly jealous. He says that due to the nature of his business and the kind of people with whom he associates, he wants someone he knows and trusts living there. Reese is practically convinced until Max, Sonnys butler, shows up at the door with Reeses boxes. Reese is offended that Sonny assumed she would take the penthouse before he ever offered it. He apologizes and leaves her to decide on her own without pressure from him - if she wants to live there. After he leaves, she immediately goes through the boxes to find her high school yearbook.
Michael is surprised when Jodie shows up at his house. After the confrontation in the park between him and her mother, he never expected to see her again. She tells him that despite what her parents say, she wants to stay Michaels friend. When Michael realizes Sonnys home, he asks Jodie to meet him. She insists that can never happen; she promised her dad that she would not associate with the mobster. Jodie asks Michael if the rumors about his dad are true, and Michael says that most of what she sees in the news is lies. Jodie point-blank asks if Sonny has ever killed anybody, and Michael says only when hes had to protect his family (do I hear a mobster in training?). Jodie asks if thats why Michael killed A.J. to be like his father and he tells her that he regrets what he did.
Michael goes inside to greet his dad. Sonny asks him why he was on the terrace, and he lies and says he was looking at constellations. Michael remarks that the light pollution isnt as bad as it was at the penthouse, and Sonny uses that as a segway to tell him about Reese and the penthouse. Michael sees things the way Sonny does: He enjoyed living there when his parents were together, but now that Carly is remarried and Sonny has a new house, theres no reason for the penthouse to stay empty. Michael meets up with Jodie again when Sonnys not looking. The two agree that when their parents fall in love with new people, they seem to get lost in the shuffle. But you matter to me, at least, Michael tells her. You matter to me, too, Jodie says and then kisses him on the cheek.
Sam gets home and immediately asks Jason if hes okay. He says one word Carly - and she responds, Headache. Sam massages Jasons headache away, and he apologizes for not going with her and Michael to see Dr. Thomas. Sam admits that although she and Jason differ on their opinions of Dr. Thomas and other things - she doesnt feel like that threatens the stability of their relationship. I think we can agree on one thing, Jason says and then kisses her. Sam admits that therapy isnt going that well for Michael, but theres good news: hes met a friend (Jodie). Jason tells Sam that Carly thinks Reese has a personal vendetta against her, but Sam disagrees. She thinks that Reese came to Port Charles legitimately and that her original motive was to help Michael. Jason says he fears that Carly is planning something big involving Reese.
Tracy catches Luke preparing for the Quartermaines' charity cocktail and orders him to leave so she wont have to introduce him as her husband. Pretty little precious pink Popsicle, you have pre-party panic, Luke tells her. No, Tracy says, I have inappropriate spousal mortification. While theyre arguing, Skye and Coleman arrive, decked out in their finest attire. Skye remarks how nice it is that they can put aside petty jealousies now that the right people are in bed together. The two pretend to be a couple in front of Luke (or Duke, as Coleman calls him) and Tracy, who appear to buy their act. Skye is convinced that their plan worked. But when Tracy and Coleman are alone, Luke crashes their make-out session, claiming that what he and Tracy have is mutually beneficial. Luke tells her, What we have is better than sex. Tracy agrees and goes with Luke. Skye feels Luke may actually be falling for that viper. Later, when theyre alone, Luke professes his love for Sky. He goes to kiss her, but she turns away.
Carly is late meeting Lorenzo for the cocktail and lies that she was with her father. Carly complains about the lack of food at the event and asks Lorenzo if they can stop for her favorite snack - french fries with mayonnaise on their way home. Lorenzo says they can, and Carly is reminded of a conversation long ago when her best friend Charlotte joked that she would lose a guy if he ever found out about her thing for french fries with mayonnaise. Lorenzo says he loves her, peculiar eating habits and all. Later, Skye catches Carly alone and reminds her to appreciate Lorenzo because he waited for her and he continues to show her devotion and loyalty that is uncommon. But instead of rejoining her husband, Carly pays one of the waiters to keep Lorenzo drunk on tequila while she slips out for a while, as Luke watches in the background. Carlys plan fails; Lorenzo is soon asking the party guests if theyve seen her.
Reese accepts Sonnys offer for the penthouse. Sonny says he planned to make her dinner, but he didnt want to be presumptuous after their previous argument. See, I do learn, he tells her. Reese is open to the dinner idea and asks him to make her something that will totally gross him out - french friends with mayonnaise. That was Carlys favorite, Sonny responds in shock. How could you know that?
Jason breaks into Reeses penthouse to wait for Carly, who he knows is planning the same thing. She arrives, as expected. She thinks Reese has an agenda and she wants to prove it.
