Pictures by Juanita
Right when it looks like Robert is ready to go after Luke and get him in trouble, Tracy comes to save the day. Dillon, Lulu and Alice wonder why she is there. She tells them she will help them tie Robert up in order to save Luke.
After carly has found out that Jax falsified the paternity records when Nikolas is really baby Johns father, she and Jax are dancing around the issue of whether either should trust the other.
Ric comes to see Sam and attempts to urge her to get Jason to back off from Sonny. He tells her he does not care what happens to Jason. But he knows it will devastate Sonny if he has to kill Jason.
When Sonny goes to see Escobar and the guys, they inform him that they no longer answer to him. He can no longer attend their meetings. Jason is the boss now.
Carly acknowledges to Jax that he is very much in the same boat with baby John as she was with Michael. So he kind of has to depend upon her to help him keep his secret and not expose him for what he has done.
Tracy works with Dillon, Lulu and Alice to find a way to keep Robert from going after Luke. Dillon asks his mother if this means that she is in love with Luke. Tracy tells her son shes tired of everybody in this house implying that.
Mac asks his officers to find his brother. They admit that they have not seen or heard from Robert. But the last they did see of him, he was in a conflict with Luke Spencer.
Alexis gets set up in her new office at the DAs and asks Durant why hed want to pull out all the stops for her. Hes given her a beautiful office with a window view, fresh cut flowers, a personal servant to bring her coffee as well as a secretary. He was never so generous when Ric was DA. Durant tells her she should not look a gift horse in the teeth. She tells him she knows he has some ulterior motive. Right then, Det. Rodriguez enters and informs them that Miguel Escobar has been shot. He informs them that Escobars body was found in an alley. It was only a few hours ago. And it looks like a professional hit. Durant instantly concludes it must be Jason or Sonny and instructs Det. Rodriguez to bring them in.
Ric tells Sam that Jason has to give Sonny back his business. Sam tells Ric he knows the terms that Jason has in order for that to happen. Ric tells her that Jason cannot give Sonny ultimatums. They all know that Sonny and Emily plan to be together whether anybody likes it or not. And Jason must realize that this is Sonnys business. He earned it all and Jason has no right to take it from him. Hearing that, Sam tells Ric that she knows he hates Jason and would like nothing more than to help Sonny murder him.
Tracy protests that she is not in love with Luke. She only falls for rich men of social stature. Not low life characters like her husband. Right then, Robert gets Lulu to believe that hes gone blind from being knocked out.
Carly tells Jax she knows he is haunted by his guilt over lying to Nikolas about baby John. And he already has doubts about whether hes fit to be a father. Jax protests that he loves that baby as if he were his own She tells him that may be. But she knows that sooner or later that part of his brain that may be harboring a conscience will get to him. And he will tell Nikolas that John is his son. He must know when that happens, Nikolas will never let him see the baby again. So if hes going to do it anyway, he must do it now instead of waiting. The longer he waits the more it will traumatize him to let go of his attachment to John. And most importantly, he must think about the interest of that little boy. He cannot let the baby bond with him only to lose him. He must do it while the baby is still too young to remember anything about him.
Sonny returns home to Emily. She notices hes hurt and asks what has happened. He admits to her that Jason saved his life.
Sam informs Ric that he should be grateful that Jason saved Sonnys life. And maybe Sonny should realize that Jason is in charge and stop the battle. She tells Ric that hes not going to persuade Jason to give in to Sonny. He needs, instead, to do what he does best and go and suck up to his brother. She tells Ric that maybe this time, Sonny will listen to him. Right then, Det. Rodriguez enters and informs them that there was a mob hit earlier that night. He tells Sam that there are questions the department needs to ask her and she must go down to the station and answer them.
Mac goes to the Quartermaine house to ask if anybody has seen or heard from his brother. They all evade the issue. He tells them that Robert was supposed to leave for the Markham islands earlier that night. And he never made his flight. And the last place he was seen was there. Edward reminds Mac that nobody in that house has seen or heard from Robert. And their house has seen nothing but misery and chaos since his unfortunate daughter got drunk and married Luke Spencer. Alice protests that this family was not normal, long before that ever happened. Mac again asks if nobody really has seen his brother. Edward tells Mac he wouldnt worry about foul play. He bets that Robert and Luke are just off on another of their crazy adventures. And he tells him that if Luke gets himself incarcerated, he is not posting bail. He says its good riddance to bad rubbish, both of them. Mac leaves and Edward tells Alice he doesnt even want to know what she has been up to. Monica comes down to observe the plan that Dillon, Lulu and Alice have cooked up for Robert. She says she seriously doubts hes gone blind. She knows that this man has been hit so many times, its a wonder his brain is not permanently fried. Robert protests to Monica that hes been held against his will. Tracy tells Monica that Robert has to stay there until Luke is safe. Robert tells them the longer they keep him there, the more time Holly will have to work her number on Luke. And he reminds Tracy that Holly might be able to take her husband from her, assuming Tracy does not want that.
At the station, Alexis observes Sam has been brought in and asks Durant why. He informs her that since they could not find Jason, they brought her in as shark bait as Jason is the shark. She tells him that since she is ADA, she would like to questions Sam herself.
Georgie goes to Lorenzos and informs him that Diego has been arrested for suspected car theft. Shes worried that since hes on probation, the silliest little thing he does could get him in trouble and his father must help him. Skye tells Lorenzo they must go to help his son right away.
Right when Carly is assuring Jax that she knows he will make the right decision in coming clean to Nikolas sooner than later, Bobbie comes to talk to them.
Sonny tells Emily that he knows it was Jason who shot Escobar. Nobody could have done it like only Jason does. He realizes Jason did it in order to save his life, knowing that Escobar threatened Sonnys life. Right then Ric enters and informs Sonny that he knows the cops are going to come by and implicate him for the shooting of Escobar.
At the station, Sam tells Alexis that she thinks its pretty low that she(Alexis) has agreed to work for Durant. Alexis tells Sam that she might need her in order to protect her (and Jason) from Durant.
Robert tells Tracy that Luke and Holly had such a hot and heavy thing. And the only thing that separated them was himself. She tells him hed make up anything in order to get out of there. He also tells her that if he were Luke and wanted to escape form what might be out there ready to get him, he might consider hiding somewhere like Turkey or Siberia. And the only alternative to that would be some place where they can stick every thing a ma jig in every orifice in his body. Monica asks Robert how he would know that Luke went to the Markham islands. He tells her that he knows that Holly set up some SOS and it was Lukey-poo to the rescue. And they must know what will happen between the two of them. And he sarcastically tells Tracy that she has nothing to worry about, as everybody knows that Luke is a happily married man who would never cheat on his wife. Hearing that, Tracy is ready to let him get out of there.
Carly asks Bobbie if the baby is ok. Bobbie assures her daughter that hes great. She checked on him right before she left the hospital and he was happy and healthy. And the reason she is there is because they want to have a nurses charity ball in Tonys memory. And she believes the metro court might be good place to have it. Jax tells her he can arrange for that.
Alexis tells Sam she realizes she does not trust her. But she should realize that she, like Sam, has very similarly been in a mess involving Sonny and Jason and Ric. And she recommends that Sam packs her bags and leaves town before she gets caught in the middle of something she cannot get out of.
Lorenzo and Skye go to the station to bail Diego out. Durant approaches Lorenzo and asks him if he knows anything about the Escobar murder. Lorenzo says he does not know nor care and he is there solely for his son. Durant lets Lorenzo see Diego. Lorenzo asks his son to tell him what is going on.
Alexis informs Sam that a man was shot tonight and the cops found his body in a dumpster. She tells her she knows that when one is exposed to violence, its easy to become desensitized to it. She urges Sam not to be. She must realize that that body was a human being. And she tells Sam she can prevent her from being involved in any prosecutions. Sam asks Alexis why she should trust her. Alexis tells Sam that she must realize that the recent situation between Sonny and Jason has become deadly. She bets that Jason is behind Escobars murder. And Sam has to get out of this mess while she still can. Sam tells Alexis she is not about to walk out on the people she loves. Alexis tells Sam that dependence is not the same as love. Sam tells Alexis that whether Alexis believes or understands it or not, Sam loves Jason and the only help she wants is a way to help him.
Mac goes to Sonnys to question him in the shooting of Escobar. Ric guards his brother and tells Mac that they cannot make assumptions about Mr. Corinthos based upon the departments personal bias of his lifestyle and history. They have no proof that Sonny has had anything to do with this. And he tells Mac if he wants to question anybody, then Ric will go with him to the station to answer any questions on Mr. Corinthos behalf. Mac then tells Ric if thats what he wants, then they can do it that way. After Ric and Mac leave, Emily remarks to Sonny that his brother is in his corner and seems to know how to handle things. Right then, Bernie enters. He gives Sonny a message from Jason that Jason intends to continue protecting Sonny. But Sonny is no longer allowed to attend their meetings. Sonny cannot have any more involvement in the business. Sonny then tells Bernie he can go. He indicates to Emily that he will now handle things himself. She asks him what exactly that means. He does not explain the specific details of his plan.
Carly pushes Bobbie out her door so that she and Jax can go upstairs.
Lulu tells Tracy that she cannot let Robert go. Because if he finds Luke, then he will put Luke in jail. Tracy tells Lulu that her father will be in worse danger if Holly gets to him before Robert does. Right then, the others decide they need to tie Tracy up. Lulu tells Tracy that Robert is working her with all of her insecurities about Luke in order to get her to help him. She knows that Tracy is in love with her father. Tracy again protests that she is not. Right then, Robert taunts Tracy about how beautiful and hot Holly is. And instantly Tracy tells him that Holly is a two-bit tramp. It sounds like she might be very jealous of her. Upstairs, Edward indicates to Alice that he knows shes up to something. But she wont tell him
At the station, Skye notices its odd that Diego would have contacted Georgie before anybody else after getting arrested. And she asks Georgie why she is not with her husband. Georgie replies that Dillon has a situation at the Quartermaine house. Skye tells Georgie that she is concerned about her interest in Diego when shes married to Dillon. Lorenzo finds out that his son stole a car and tells Diego that he cannot do things like that. Diego tells his father that he must realize that for the two of them, things like that come with the territory.. Lorenzo asks Diego if that means he did not steal it or if hes simply covered his tracks by making sure its in the chop shop. Diego tells his father that in times like this, a guy has to do what he has to do in order to afford to live.
Ric comes by to see Alexis in her new office. Instantly they talk shop about her new role as a prosecutor, how he intends to defend his brother from her department and how shes become brainwashed by Durant.
At Sonnys, Emily tells him that maybe he should take into consideration that Jason saved his life. And he COULD see that as a sign of good faith that maybe if he gives Jason time, Jason will reconsider his plans. Sonny tells Emily she just doesnt understand what he knows Jason is capable of. Its not acceptable that Jason wants to call all the shots, whether hes saved his life or not. Right then, Sam enters and tells Sonny shes worried because she cannot find Jason. He then tells her that she needs to know that Jason has overstepped his boundaries.
Monica and Alice agree to leave Tracy in the basement bound and gagged. Lulu then suggests having both Robert and Tracy down there. And the others agree.
Lorenzo sounds like he wants to wash his hands of his son for the moment and make Skye and their baby his top priority. But she tells him she does not want to abandon Diego and tells him that just because he is her babys father does not give him the right to make decisions for her about what she does or does not do. He tells her she must know that since hes already lost his son, he cannot lose both her and the baby as well. Mac then announces that bail has been set and Diego is free to go but there will be a hearing. Georgie wants to stay and help Diego. He thanks her but tells her he never wants her to call his father and get him involved in this again. She tells him that she can still talk to her own dad and attempt to persuade him to know that Diego did not do anything wrong and cannot be falsely charged.
Again Alexis and Ric are talking shop and about their home office, then about Sonny, then about their dinner plans when they get off work.
Sam tells Sonny that he must realize that Jasons act of saving his life is an indication of his loyalty to Sonny. Sonny tells her he does not buy that. And he warns her that if Jason pushes this any farther, he will not hesitate to kill him.
Robert and Tracy awaken tied to chairs in the basement. He is ready to tell her more stories about the good old days wit him and Luke. Right then, Edward arrives. Tracy tellsher father she is very happy that hes come to rescue them. He asks her why she thinks he would rescue both of them.
Lucky is in his hospital room having a dream that hes paralyzed and watching Elizabeth with Patrick Drake kissing. He then awakens. She runs to him. And he knows hes just been having a dream.
Carly calls a meeting at the metro court with Nikolas. He asks her what she wants to tell him. Jax comes by and tells her hed like to know also.
Sonny is sitting alone and depressed. Max comes and announces that his brother is there to see him. Sonny tells Ric he needs to leave. He has something going on that is business and not what he cares to discuss with Ric. Hearing that, Ric tells him he knows what hes about to do. Hes going to have someone take Jason out.
Surprisingly, it looks like Edward is willing to untie Robert so that he can make sure Luke Spencer never shows his face at his door again. But hes not about to untie Tracy. She tells her father she will never again do him any favors. He doesnt seem to care. Right then, Alice, Dillon and Lulu enter. Lulu tells them that Robert is not going anywhere any more than Tracy is.
At the hospital, Lucky tells Elizabeth he had a nightmare the previous night. He hates being stuck there unable to go home and be with her. And last night he was unable to get a hold of her. He called and she never answered the phone. She explains that she took the ringer off the phone after she and Cameron went to sleep. And right then, she gets a page and leaves. Patrick appears and she confirms that they have a little secret and she just lied to Lucky. Right then, Robin enters. She asks Patrick if he can do a consult on one of her patients. Shes ready to get back to business but realizes that he might have been distracted the previous night.
Carly sits down at the table with Jax and Elizabeth. She tells them the reason shes called the meeting with Nikolas is to have a fundraiser in the hospital in honor of Tony Jones. Hearing that, Nikolas reminds Carly that although he does not mean to judge, he knows she had a problem with Tony. Carly confirms that she knows she ruined his marriage to her mother and slept with him. But she still wants to hold this fundraiser because Tony was a great doctor and great man.
Right then, Manny is on the phone with some woman confirming plans to be at the fundraiser.
Sonny tells Ric that the way the business works is if he does not take back what is his, then hes worth nothing. But Ric tells Sonny that if Jason shows up dead, then the cops will be all over him. Sonny snaps back that they wont be able to prove anything. Ric reminds Sonny if something happened to Jason, Emily will be very upset and never get over it. Also he must think of Carly. She will hate him. Not to mention what it will do to the boys. He suggests that maybe instead of taking Jason out, maybe he should just take him out of commission. Run him out of the business. He tells Sonny he is offering a solution to save both himself and Jason. Sonny asks Ric how he would do that. Ric reminds Sonny that Jason murdered Mr. Escobar last night. He can send Jason to prison.
Nikolas confirms to Carly that he did admire and respect Tony Jones so he will help with the fundraiser. He tells her he appreciates her letting him see little John. So its the least he can do. He then leaves. Jax privately apologizes to Carly for jumping to conclusions. When he saw her with Nikolas, he thought she was ready to tell him that he was little Johns father. She tells him that he need not be suspicious of her. He then tells her that he is lucky. He thought it would just be him and little John. Now its the three of them. She puts her arms around him.
Epiphany goes into Luckys room and shuts down his morphine supply. He tells her he needs the stuff so that he can push himself further in physical therapy. She tells him it might cause him further injury. And she explains that it was not her choice to take away his morphine drip, nor Elizabeths. IT was the order of Dr. Patrick Drake.
Patrick notices his father looking at some medical records. Patrick tells Noah that this patient, Nancy Dixon is his patient. And Noah cannot just cherry pick records from other doctors. He and Robin had a consult about her and he got orders from Dr. Alan Quartermaine to be her surgeon. Noah tells his son that he is more qualified to perform surgery on Nancy. Patrick tells his father that he is just doing this for his one shot of redemption. Alone with Patrick, Robin asks him what the deal is with this patient. He informs her that she has the exact same neurological condition as his mother. His father has this mission to save her. But he cannot let him cut her open. If he fails, hes had it.
Sonny tells Ric it might be difficult to get any evidence tying Jason with Escobars murder. There are no fingerprints. Its untraceable. Jason knows how to get away with anything. Ric tells Sonny theres only one thing Jason did not realize. There is an eyewitness. Sonny asks who that might be. Jason says its him(Sonny).
Nikolas goes to see Lucky struggling and in pain. He tells him that he looks to be pushing himself too hard. He asks him what the rush is. Lucky tells Nikolas he has a timetable. Nikolas tells Lucky that hes been laid up in this hospital also. He knows what its like to want to get out. But the pain is a sign that you need more time to heal.
Alone in the basement, Robert tells Tracy he knows ways to get free. He moves toward her and manages to untie the ropes around her feet.
Carly tells Jax that she believes that they are a good team. But they are a little confused as to what their role together at the party will be.
Nikolas goes to find Patrick Drake and informs him that his brother is in agony because Patrick took him off his pain management. He asks if this is standard procedure. Patrick tells Nikolas that Luckys pain is a direct result of over medicating himself. Nikolas asks Patrick if he is punishing Lucky by taking him off his pain medicine. Patrick tells Lucky that he is not taking him off pain medicine. Hes just taking the morphine away. He goes away and Nikolas asks Elizabeth if egotism is the driving force for Patrick. She tells him that Patrick has his ways and takes a bit of getting used to. But hes not as bad as he appears.
Ric tells Sonny he wants him to do the smart and honorable thing, which is to spare Jasons life.
Carly tells Nikolas that she is a little weirded out to invite all of those women to the party. The one thing they all have in common is they all hate her. She knows that Alexis and Robin will trash her behind her back to him. He then tells her that Alexis and Robin are his friends. But they do not tell him who to date. He makes his own choices. He is there with her in order to make money.
Tracy asks Robert why she is untying him. He tells her its because he is the only man who can save her hapless husband. She tells him that Luke does not deserve to be saved. He tells her he understands the way all US law enforcement officials work. Since he is hand-cuffed, he needs her to remove the hand-cuffs and needs to showher the way to do it. And that involves having her sit on his lap on the chair with his hands in front of her and his arms around her. Dillon comes by and watches them in that position and wonders what is going on between them. At that point, she manages to unlock the handcuffs and Robert is free..
Elizabeth informs Lucky that Patrick did write the order to remove his morphine drip. But Nikolas chewed him out for the way he was treating Lucky. He tells her that maybe she can make it up to him. The hospital food is lousy. So they can have pizza together and watch a movie in his room. She tells him thats not going to work. She has a staff meeting tonight. But maybe this weekend. And she leaves.
Carly goes to see Patrick and tells him about the charity event. Elizabeth comes by and he asks her if she plans to come. She says no. Shes too busy. And she cannot afford a ticket. He tells her he can treat her. Carly encourages Elizabeth to come and accept Patricks offering. Patrick tells Elizabeth she will have fun as well as support a worthy cause. At that point, Elizabeth agrees. Not a good move.
Ric goes to the DAs office and pleads the case for Sonny. She asks him if his client had any involvement in the shooting of Miguel Escobar. Ric tells her Mr. Corinthos was a first hand witness in what happened. She asks Ric if his client has any clue who actually did shoot Miguel Escobar. Right then, Sonny appears and confirms it was Jason Morgan.
Lorenzo and Skye go to the metro court and meet Jax. Right then, Jax is alarmed when he believes hes seen Manny Ruiz in a crowd. He tells her he must go and see something. He runs after the guy whom he believes is Manny. But he disappears.
Sam goes to the office and demands that they let her talk to Jason. Alexis tells Sam that they will not let her see Jason because Jason is under suspicion for the shooting. Sam asks Alexis where that would come from. Just last night she talked to Durant who admitted that he had no evidence against Jason. Alexis tells Sam there is new evidence. There is now an eye witness. Sam asks her whom that would be. But she realizes she probably already knows the answer.
Sonny and Ric return home. Sonny tells Ric that he is not ok with committing perjury before a grand jury and before God. But Ric tells Sonny that he needs to go through with this. He will be able to have everything back without having to kill Jason.
Epiphany tells Robin that she and Patrick need to take their personal issues outside. She tells her she realizes that is probably true. But Patrick really makes her angry by constantly reminding her that she has no life.
Nikolas walks into Luckys room and is shocked to see him with a gun. He asks Lucky where it came from. Lucky replies that Mac gave his gun back to him after Jesses funeral. He also informs Nikoals that Elizabeth is finding too many excuses not to be with him. And shes spending too much time with Patrick Drake. Nikolas tells Lucky that his decision to grab the gun because of this is insane.
Lorenzo and Skye talk to Jax about her pregnancy. Lorenzo agrees to write a check and go on the stage. He leaves and Jax tells Skye it might not be a good idea to make Lorenzo noticeable at the fundraiser. She reminds him that Lorenzo could bring in a fortune. But Jax reminds her of Lorenzos previous life style. She tells him that Lorenzo has gotten past that and is now committed to her and the baby.
Alexis tells Ric that she knows that Sonny is not really going to testify against Jax. Hes only making empty threats to do so as a stall tactic. She asks him if he has any idea how ugly this could get. He tells her he has all the confidence in the world in her legal expertise. So she may build her case against Jason.
Carly comes to see Sonny and tells him she has to ask him to do something. She knows he will say yes. Hes going to be surrounded by festivities and beautiful women. HE tells her he cannot discuss this with her now. He is very upset. Something very serious is going on. Jason has been called in for questioning in the shooting. Right then, Sam runs in and tells Sonny he is a bastard. After Jason has saved his life, he wants to send him to jail.
