He asks her if she really did not have any responsibility nor know what she did. Was she too drunk to make her own decision? She admits that she did it and she regrets it. He tells her that he does not believe that she will attempt to explain the whole thing to Jason. But she tells him she will if it is the only way to stop him(Ric)
At Jasons, Elizabeth tells him that for such a long time, hes been so good to her. Shes felt a special connection with him. They once meant a lot to each other. He then tells her that that was a long time ago. She tells him thats true. But she is not sorry. He tells her that he really likes the way that she can look back with no regrets.

She admits that after the shock, she left the house, did not know where she was going to go and found herself on his doorstep. But tomorrow, she will be strong. She will figure out what to do.

And they go at it on the couch.
After Lulu walks in to see how sick Lucky has become, Nikolas demands that his brother gets out. Lulu then asks Nikolas and Emily if they should not help him with his drug addcition. Maybe they should call Elizabeth. Nikolas tells ther that that would not be a good idea right now. She asks why. Nikolas and Emily hesitate to tell her but then conclude that she will find out sooner or later. So they tell her that Elizabeth walked out on Lucky because she caught him cheating on her. Lulu is really surprised that her brother would do that to his wife.
At the metro court, Sonny tells Alexis that she may doubt that her husband loves her. But he does. And she needs to tell him what he means to her and work out her differences with him. He admits to her that he understands what its like to be really messed up. Hes been to hell and back but is working his way back up. He wants to get his life on track and be a good father to Kristina and to the boys. She tells him that she thinks that is a good plan. She also tells Sonny that she believes that Ric would be beside himself if he could hear Sonny defending him. He tells her that he realizes that its inconvenient needing somebody. But she must know that everybody needs somebody at some time. Right then, an attendant tells all of the people in the restaurant that the power is not working so they are checking it. Sonny and Alexis know that its getting late and they need to depart. She tells him that she needs to get Krstina home. They notice that Krsitna has fallen asleep on the couch. Sonny picks up his sleeping daughter and carries her. He tells Alexis that he can keep her for the night. He knows Alexis is in no condition to care for their daughter tonight. He assures Alexis that Kristina will be ok with him at his house.
Ric tells Sam that her speech that it was a mistake and that he was using her to stick it to Jason is a lie that she is telling herself. And if she goes and blabs to Jason what happened, all she will accomplish is to get him to hate her. In response to that, she tells him that he is a dead man and he must now start running.
Jason notices Elizabeth asleep on his couch. He kisses her on the forehead. She awakens. He brings her some bottled water. She admits to him that with all the pain and heart ache, she does not know how to process it. He tells her she is so beautiful and always was. He just never expected this. She tells him that she never thought that this would happen. She concludes to him, however, that this is the only night that they can spend together.
Sonny returns home and notices Ric in his living room. He asks his brother what he did knowing that something is up with him. Ric tells Sonny it is not what he did. He did Sam. And hes not going to give Jason the satisfaction of blaming him for that. Hearing that, Sonny asks Ric what his problem is. He informs his brother that not long ago, he talked to Alexis in the metro court. He now knows why she is so upset that she cannot have Kristina at her house tonight and needed Sonny to take her. He tells Ric that now he can see things really clearly. He knew that Ric bought the dress for Emily so that Sonny would think that he did something he did not do. Hes getting into everybodys business and manipulating everybody so that he does not have to face the fact that he has trashed his life.
Alexis returns home and relives seeing Sam with Ric. She breaks down crying hysterically and has a terrible coughing trauma.
Elizabeth and Jason lie in each others arms by the fire. She asks him what will happen to Cameron when he finds out that Lucky is no longer in his life. Shes worried that it will tear that little boys heart part. He tells her that it will be ok because she is a great mother. She then tells him that she wishes so much that she could spend more time with him. But she realizes that with the life that Jason leads, she cannot take that chance. She will always remember and be so grateful that when she had no place to go, Jason rescued her. She tells him she should probably go. But clearly, neither of them wants her to leave.
Sonny concludes to Ric that he slept with Sam in order to stick it to Jason, and to get to him(Sonny). Ric then tells his brother here we go again. Sonny believes that everything is all about him. Sonny tells Ric that he has to get over his issues. He has to stop chasing after Sonny and instead think more about his family. Because that is the most important thing that Ric has. He tells Ric that he(himself) has had to face his issues. He was forced to do that when he hit rock bottom. And he tells Ric that with his most recent thing with Sam, Ric has totally bottomed outs. He tells his brother that he really needs to wake up and figure out what he really wants and needs in his life.
Alone in the house, Alexis straightens things up and looks like shes pulling herself together.
Lucky is alone in the apartment drinking and taking more pills. He notices a gun on the table. He stares at it.
Elizabeth informs Jason that Cameron is staying at her grandmothers tonight. And she cannot go there because she promised her grandmother that she would attempt to work things out with Lucky. And maybe the only place for her is the hotel. He then tells her she may stay with him. He kisses her. Right then, Sam enters the hallway outside. She goes up to the door of the apartment that used to be hers with Jason and is ready to go inside.
