Sonny and Lorenzo arrive at the stables in time to see Carly down on the ground with Reese. Carly is trying to figure out what Reese was saying about a friendship being destroyed. Sonny is sure that Carly caused Reeses accident, but Carly maintains that Reese was unconscious when she arrived. Lorenzo defends his wife. He tells Sonny that Carly was not responsible for this accident just like she wasnt responsible for burglarizing Reeses home. Carly and Sonny lock eyes, and she admits to Lorenzo that she did, in fact, break into the penthouse. Carly apologizes for lying and tells Lorenzo that she went to the penthouse to look through Reeses things, but Reese returned while she was still there so she knocked her out. Reese wakes up momentarily while Sonny is questioning Carly about Reeses ramblings. When Reese finally gets up, Sonny and Carly ask about her ramblings, but she feigns confusion. Sonny takes the opportunity to sing Reeses praises by informing the Alcazars that Reese was willing to keep quiet about the burglary to keep the peace. Lorenzo is embarrassed and leaves with Carly at his heels.
Meanwhile, Sonny tries to get Reese to admit that Carly was responsible for her accident, but she tells a different story. She tells him that she walked down to the stables and was looking for identification collars for the horses when something fell on her head. Sonny points out that since theyve been dating, he has inadvertently caused her a lot of trouble first when Carly broke into the penthouse and knocked her unconscious, and now this accident. She asks him if hes trying to break up with her. Hes not; he just wants to be sure she can handle all that comes with being in a relationship with him. Reese reminds him that her job is to keep up with bad guys. Reese tells Sonny that she wont let Carly get away with anything. Sonny asks what she wants most: to be in a relationship with him or to beat Carly.
Once theyre back in the house, Carly stands in front of a mirror and laments their horrible night. In a rage, Lorenzo grabs the mirror off the wall and slams it onto the ground. He tells her that she will not make a fool out of him while she chases after Sonny.

Elizabeth notices Jaxs bruised cheek and asks what happened. He lies and says he was hit by debris from the storm (haha), but Lucky overhears and admits responsibility. Jax, being the gentlemen, tells Elizabeth that they had a disagreement, but hes confident that everyone will feel better once the storm passes. Lucky, on the other hand, cant stop talking about how Jax flaunts his wealth. The real problem: Luckys pride is bruised over his girlfriend loaning out her ovaries to pay his bills.
Later, when Lucky and Elizabeth are alone, she gives him an earful about his behavior. She reminds him that her decision to become a surrogate isnt solely about his bills; its also about her wanting to help a wonderful couple have a child of their own. Lucky tells her that if shes not pregnant this time, he doesnt want her to try again, but Elizabeth says that decision will be hers. Lucky thinks Elizabeths behavior is an indication that she would rather be Jax and Courtneys surrogate than be with him. She tells him that she fell in love with him when he was a teen-ager, and now that he has become a man, shes not sure she likes what she sees. Elizabeth tries to explain to Lucky that the surrogacy will solve all of their money problems, but Lucky is worried about how she will feel when she sees her biological child being raised by other people. The two cant reach an agreement, so Lucky leaves in a huff.
Later, Jax walks in on Elizabeth crying and suggest that perhaps this entire surrogacy plan was a bad idea. He doesnt want to build his family at the expense of hers. Shes starting to agree.

Nicholas tells her theres no way for things to get better if she wont admit they have a problem. He points out that Emily is always busy working or with her family, anything to avoid being with him. She makes excuses instead of admitting that shes doing all of those things in excess to avoid being alone with him. She even tells him that they are together now but he feels like shes got her eye on the door. Emily tells him that she wants them to be the way they were before, but Nicholas is afraid that will never happen. Both of them wonder aloud what they can do to fix things, but neither one seems to have an answer.
