The guy comes out to talk to Lucas and assumes that Brook Lynn might be his girlfriend. But they confirm that Lucas is gay and the guy informs Lucas he’s new in town and Lucas might want to help him find his way around.

Carly tells Courtney that it might be a good thing that she finds out early on that it will not work out with her and Nikolas. Courtney then admits to Carly that maybe her first idea was the right one. She should disappear until the baby is born.

Sonny and Emily return to his home. They seem to be the only ones who are happy. He tells her he thinks she wants to go home.

But the one thing he did not consider is her.

Courtney tells Carly that she does not want to be caught in this pressure cooker between Jax and Nikolas. It’s not good for her, or either of them or the baby. She tells Carly she has to break it off with both of them. She tells Carly she must promise her not to tell either guy where she is going. Carly says she promises not a word and she will help Courtney make the arrangements.

Nikolas tells Jax he must stay out of his life. Jax tells Nikolas that he believes that Nikolas will destroy Courtney. And he knows that Nikolas is obsessed about Sonny and Emily.

Emily tells Sonny that what she believes is the problem is that he does not believe in her feelings for him. She assures him that she is not rebounding. That’s not what this is all about. But he tells her that if she “comes back” to him and decides that she’s over Nikolas, then they will see what happens. But he has to let her go and not keep her living at his home.
