Coleman then asks what he will get if he agrees to do it. Luke tells him he will get ten percent – “Take it or leave it!” Coleman wants to know why Luke wants to rob his own business. Luke tells Coleman that since Tracy has frozen all his assets, this is his way of getting them back. Thinking that the discussion between Luke and Coleman was of a totally different nature, Lulu enters the club and tells Luke not to listen to him. She exclaims, “I can explain everything!”

Alexis asks if she can deliver the news to Sam instead. The nurse thinks that would be a good idea. Alexis opens Sam’s door and is surprised to find an empty room.
Sam arrives at Jason’s. She angrily confronts him by asking “What did you think I would do, Jason, sign your insulting paper like a good little girl?

He tells Emily that he didn’t think it would be a problem coming to see her at home. Emily reassures him that it isn’t a problem, but it may make Sonny a bit uncomfortable. Nikolas then asks Emily if Sonny mentioned anything to Emily. She says he hasn’t but she is trying to be sensitive and respect Sonny in his own home. She doesn’t want to throw her previous relationship with Nikolas in Sonny’s face. Irritated, Nikolas says it won’t happen again. He takes the paperwork and walks out of the room. Max enters and apologizes to Emily. He didn’t know what to tell Nikolas. He mentions that it’s a good thing Sonny is out. She tells him that she told Nikolas to call next time.

Jason explains that he had papers drawn up that guaranteed her a financially sound future. Emily asks Jason if it was an offer for Sam to go away.
