makes sure that anything she says to Lainey is strictly confidential and Lainey
assures her it is. Alexis proceeds to tell her about her lung cancer and how Sam
and Ric slept together and that Alexis knows but canít tell them because she is
afraid that it will blow her family apart. While she tells her this Alexis
starts to laugh kind of hysterically not really knowing how to deal with the
whole situation. She sounds like she is falling apart and canít really handle
everything that is happening.
Sonny and Jason discuss taking the shipment meant for Lorenzo, when who shows up in but Lorenzo himself. He cracks a joke about who is supposed to be in charge. Whether Sonny is sane enough to deal with business, but Sonny reassures him he is just fine.

Lorenzo is adamant about needing the shipment and finally Sonny tells him where his shipment is and that if he goes there, his guards wonít bother him. Jason looks at Sonny wondering what is going on. After Lorenzo leaves he asks Sonny what is going on and Sonny tells him that with everything going on the last thing they need is a fight with Lorenzo.

Nicholas comes in at this point, and Sam leaves to let Alexis tell Nicholas about her illness. Alexis tells Nicholas that there is no easy way to tell him but she has lung cancer. He hugs her and she tells him all the information on the cancer. She wants him to promise that if she dies, he will make sure that Sonny and Ric will abide by whatever decision it is Alexis makes regarding Molly and Kristina.

that he overheard part of the fight between Tracey and Edward and tells Lulu
that if there is any way he can help he will be there. She turns him down at
first but when he goes to leave she calls him back and tells him the whole
story. Robert blasts out ďI kill himĒ and when Lulu thinks he is talking about
Dillon he corrects her and tells her that he is talking about Luke. He figures
that part of the reason this all happened was because Lulu wants her fatherís
attention and Luke is never around for her. But she tells him that she got
pregnant all by herself. She refuses to let Robert blame Luke for her situation.
Nicholas goes home where Emily is watching Spencer. He asks her about Lulu and Emily tells him that Lulu canít talk with him right now. That she is overwhelmed but that she will be in touch.

Emily lets Nicholas know how much he helped her and they have a close moment when he tells her that he feels helpless, because he has nothing to fight for Alexis. that she has to go through this alone.

escaped, and Sam wouldnít have been shot and so on. But Jason tells her that it
isnít about timing but choices. That everyone makes choices in life and that is
what affects everything. They go on to talk about the night they slept together.
