Luke and Robert wake up in the sleeping bag together from the night before. Holly walks over to them and hands Luke a piece of paper. Opening up the piece of paper, it reveals that Holly, Luke and Robert are all wanted.
In the hospital, Jax walks out of the elevator and over to Dr. Meadows, who reveals that she is retiring and that she is cleaning out her office. She offers her condolences for Courtenys death and brings up the matter of Baby John's paternity. As Carly walks over to them, Dr. Meadows asks Jax why he bribed her to fake a paternity test if he thought the baby was his. Carly just looks on with a shocked look.
Over at Sonny's, Emily is hanging over the stairs with a hangover. Sonny holds up a glass for her, offering her a remedy for her tequila hangover. While at the hospital, Kelly and Liz are also dealing with their own hangovers from the night before. Liz has "tequila oozing out of her pores" and offers Kelly some coffee to help her. Kelly tells Liz that coffee won't help her with the fact that she must tell Sam's fiance that her blood counts haven't changed, she is dying. In Sam's hospital room, Jason is standing vigil. Dr. Lee walks over towards Sam and Jason asks her how she is doing. She tells Jason that Sam is not getting any better.
Back on the Island, Holly informs Luke and Robert she got the paper back in the Village while looking for coffee. Realizing that there is a bounty on all three of their heads, Luke tells Holly, they should turn Robert in; rationalizing that Scorpio is a "terroist" and that if they turn them in, they can split the bounty and maybe get a metal. Robert tells Luke that what him and Holly did is much worse and that the police will realize it. He reminds Luke about the chimpanze and the virus. Then turns it on Luke and tells Holly they can turn him in and split that bounty. Luke doesn't like that fact because then Holly would wind up with Robert.
In the hospital, Jax lies to Dr. Meadows telling her that he really is John's father and that he wanted her to fake the test to protect John from the Cassadines. Dr. Meadows appears to be happy for Jax and walks away. Jax does the same and walks over to Carly, asking what she is doing there. Carly tells Jax that she needs to tell Bobbie about her father, John Durant's, death because the Mayor's office wants to keep it quiet. Over at the Nurses station, Dr. Meadows hands Ephiphany her "last official act as doctor": an order for a paternity test on Baby John. As Dr. Meadows walks away, Carly tells Jax that she slept at Jason's and shares some not so great memories of her father. As Jax and Carly are discussing Michael and Morgan in regards to them knowing their grandfather, Ric comes by and suggests that Carly let him take the boys back to their fathers.
Sonny hands Emily the glass, as she begins to drink it, he tells her that after she's done drinking it, they can go have sex like Emily wanted to the night before. To that, Emily spits up the drink. Sonny reminds Emily of what she told him and uses the same vocabulary, taking Emily off guard; looking very appauled. Sonny plays with Emily as she gets embarassed.
At the District Attorney's office, Alexis expresses frustration at Durants no show at a meeting. Mayor Floyd arrives at the office and advises Alexis that Durant will no longer be a problem. Mayor Floyd tells Alexis that Durant was murdered because of Organized Crime and offers Alexis the job of interim District Attorney. Alexis is shocked and Mayor Floyd informs her that Durant choose Alexis in case a situation such as this arose.
At Sam's room, Jason asks Dr. Lee if Sam is getting any better. Dr. Lee informs Jason that Sam's blood still isn't clotting properly and asks if Sam is sleeping through the night. Jason tells her that when she is awake she's very tired and when she's asleep she is restless. Dr. Lee informs Jason that Sam is getting weaker by the hour and Jason tells her to try something else. Dr. Lee says she'll order more tests and walks away as Jason walks back into the hospital room and sits down by Sam. She wakes up and asks how she's doing. Jason tells her that she is doing great. Sam smiles, but Jason just looks worried.
At the hospital, Carly gets angry at Ric for his suggestion and tells him that she will make those decisions. Ric continues to reason with Carly as Jax intervenes and tells Ric that if anyone tries to take the boys away from Carly, he'll crush them.

Carly tells Jax she is mad at Ric and Sonny, but she's upset about her father.
Back at Sonny's, Milo brings in a greasy back and hands it to Sonny. The smell is a turnoff for Emily, but he takes out a nice greasy burger and tells Emily that it will help her hangover if she had food in her stomach. Emily doesn't want to eat the burger, but Sonny tells her to give it a try. Handing Emily the burger, Sonny tells her to "Slam it. Lick it. And Suck it" Emily's embarassment grows and Sonny says that it was cute seeing a different side of her. As Emily begins remembering that night, Emily explains why the girls were out drinking that night. As she does, she remembers that Kelly told her that Sam was dying.
Alexis is stunned that Mayor Floyd offered her the position. The Mayor explains that he doesn't want to announce Durants death without having a replacement for him in place. As Alexis begins to process the offer in her mind, the Mayor tells her that he doesn't want her to take the job because she's too soft on organized crime and because of her involvement with Sonny Corinthos. This challenges Alexis and she accepts the offer on the spot, putting Mayor Floyd in his place for his accusations. Alexis then dismisses the Mayor from her office.
Back on the Island, Holly informs Robert and Luke that she knows the area pretty well because her husband spent a lot of time on it. She then stuns the two of them by telling them that his family has a Villa on the island. Robert gets frustrated because she has a Villa, but they had to spent the night in the same sleeping bag.

Sonny tells Carly again that he is not going to be kept out of his children's lives because he will fight her in court for the rest of their lives if he has to.
