THE COURTHOUSE: Manny has just been freed and everyone is leaving the courthouse. Alexis and John Durant are answering questions from reporters. Carly asks to speak to Jason for a moment. Meanwhile, Manny approaches Sam. She is obviously scared, but no one seems to be paying attention as Manny comes closer and closer to her. He tells her that he's sorry for the pain he cased her. She accuses him of lying.
Jason arrives and slams Manny up against the wall. Sonny tries to get Jason to back off of Manny, warning him, "Not here." John approaches the scene and tells Jason that he's going to arrest him for assaulting Manny. Manny says he doesn't want to press charges because he says he knows the pain he has caused Jason and Sam. John wants the police to take Manny to the PCPD to have him fitted with his ankle monitor (which will require him to stay within a five mile radius from the police station.
LORENZO'S HOUSE: Lorenzo and Skye are preparing to leave for the ballet. As Skye goes upstairs to get the opera glasses, Lorenzo takes a call on his phone -- it's one of his men, with the news that Manny has been set free with required community service at General Hospital...plus, Manny will have to wear an ankle monitor. Lorenzo replies that that will be a complication, but he's sure that given some creativitiy Manny will still be able to eliminate Sonny. Lorenzo hangs up as Skye returns with the opera glasses. Suddenly Skye trips and hurts her ankle.
METRO COURT: Robin and Patrick have arrived for their date. They bicker a bit...Patrick wants her to loosen up and have some fun. Robin asks him why he cares, since he'll be on to some other conquest tomorrow. She thinks they could just sit and have a quiet dinner, that's all. Patrick asks her why she has to put up a wall all the time, and Robin replies that she has her guard up for the same reason he's always so cocky...they are both trying to hide what they're feeling.
THE HOSPITAL: Elizabeth and Lucky talk about how Manny will be doing his community service at the hospital. Elizabeth says that Manny gives her the creeps, and she thinks he's faking being a new, kinder and gentler man. Lucky agrees with Elizabeth and warns her to be careful. Just then Emily arrives with Michael and Morgan. Lucky asks Elizabeth to watch the boys for a moment...while she takes them over to the couch in the lobby, Lucky tells Emily that Manny was set free and will probably be going after Sonny. Lucky's worried that that will make Emily a target, too.
THE COURTHOUSE: Sam approaches Alexis in the courtroom and says, "Well, you must be so proud." Alexis asks her to please just let this be over. Sam says it's just the beginning. She thinks that next Manny will go after Alexis or one of Alexis' children.
Out in the courthouse lobby Jason tells Sonny he'll set up the elimination of Manny as soon as possible. Sonny says that that's too risky as John Durant could be watching. He thinks they should let Manny live a little longer.
LORENZO'S HOUSE: Lorenzo worries about Skye's ankle, which is sprained.

THE METRO COURT: Patrick tells Robin a story about a time he went to the concert and was distracted by an upcoming med school test.

She smiles as she says this and Patrick tells her, "You should smile more often. You're beautiful when you smile."
