At Sonnys, Jason tells Sonny that they need to beware of Lorenzo Alcazar. Sonny tells Jason its probably nothing out of the ordinary. The main concern that Lorenzo has is to find Skye.

And now, if shes going to tell him that she doesnt want him. She tells him that that is exactly the problem. He asks her what she is talking about. She tells him that she does want him. She tells him that she used to be indestructible. She used to be unafraid to take on any battle or challenge. But then, she broke and wound up in a sanitarium. He tells her that Sonny did that to her. She tells him no. She will not make it anybodys fault. She owns what happened to herself. And she remembers, shortly after she got out of the institution, she had to force herself to tolerate him just so that she could be near Courtneys son. And then she developed feelings for him. All of these things have been happening too fast. And now she needs time.
Sonny informs Jason that Alexis got pneumonia. The doctors concluded that she was so weak that they had to induce a coma for her and put her on a ventilator.

Maxie asks Lucky how many times he has to get kicked in the teeth before he realizes that his marriage is over.

But they were never over. She reminds him that Elizabeth left him. He tells her that Elizabeth had every right to leave him. His addiction to the pills has gotten way out of hand. He rationalizes to Maxie that she is a nice person. She is not ok with that. He tells her that he intends to get back with Elizabeth. He loves his wife. She concludes that that must mean that he does not need her now. She then tells him he must come on. How many times has he said that he was going to quit but could not? She tells him its very obvious that hes not ready to quit. He needs more pills and she will get them for him. He tells her that hes going to get over he pills. So she must get out of his home.

She asks Elizabeth if that is what she really believes. Elizabeth replies that she does not know.

Right then, Sonny enters. He tells Carly that they need to talk. She is not ok that hes interrupted her and Jax. She tells Sonny he has no right to barge into her home and order her around.

She tells him that Jax has been invited to her home and he cannot order him out of the house. Jax leaves. Sonny tells her that she and Jax can bop around like bunnies whenever and wherever they want unless its around his children. She tells him that their children are not there.

Right then, we hear Sam and Jasons love song. Jason leaves and Kristina asks her big sister where she was and what she has in her hand.
Elizabeth tells Emily that she has done everything she can possibly do for Lucky. Shes done her best to be loving and supportive and patient. And at some point, enough is enough. Emily tells Elizabeth that she must know that Lucky is sick and cannot control his behaviors. Elizabeth tells Emily that she cant keep making excuses for him. Emily tells Elizabeth that especially due to the fact that Lucky has such serious problems is all the more reason to help him. Elizabeth tells Emily that she cannot help him anymore if he refuses to help himself. She prays for him to get into rehab. But he has to make that decision. She asks Emily if that sounds selfish. Emily tells Elizabeth that she sounds like she no longer loves Lucky. Elizabeth admits that she is not certain if she does or not or if it even matters anymore. Emily tells Elizabeth that maybe she needs to get clear on what she wants or else she might lose Lucky for good.
And once again, Lucky is alone in the house withdrawing. His hand is shaking and he cannot control it. Right away, his resistance has completely worn down and hes changed his mind about what hes most recently told Maxie. She seems to know that its only a matter of time before Lucky comes back to her. She is on the phone telling that very thing to Georgie, while in her room waiting for Lucky.
Carly tells Sonny that he has to stop using their kids for his own agenda. He tells her that this is about her also. She asks him what he is talking about. He tells her that Jason just came back from South America and found out that Lorenzo may endanger her. She tells him that that is absurd. Lorenzo would never hurt her or the boys. He tells her that she needs to use caution. Alcazar put out a hit on Jason. And the people who work with him dont care about anything except getting their point across. And if that means a dead woman and her kids, they dont care. He tells her if she and Jax want to grope each other on the couch like horny teenagers, thats their business. But anybody could have walked in the door when they were distracted.. He then concludes that he is going to put a guard on the house in order to protect her and the boys. And she agrees. He gets up to leave but tells her that just for the record, she must know that Jax is a player and he cannot be faithful. He wants her to be afraid when she should be just like the Carly he used to know. He goes out the door.
Lucky goes to the hospital and asks Emily if shes seen his wife. Emily admits to him that Elizabeth doesnt want to see him. She does not want to be put in the middle of this. She admits to him that Elizabeth is now at the court house filing for divorce and Lucky better not make this worse. Right then, he gets a call from Maxie and it sounds like shes ready to OD on the pills that she has for him that he refuses to take now that hes refused to be with her.
Jason gets on the phone to tell his contact that they need to protect Sam and Kristina and let him know right away if they see anything suspicious. Right then, Elizabeth runs up to Jason, puts her arms around him, tells him how happy she is that hes back and that shes filed for divorce.
Carly gets dressed to go out with Jax and calls him to meet at the metro court. He comes by and tells her that it sounds nice but he has to take a rain check. She tells him she doesnt understand. He tells her that this is not about the two of them. This is about Sonny. He walked in and ruined their moment and now she wants to sleep with him in order to stick it to Sonny. He doesnt want to be used. He only wants to be with her when she is ready to be with him.
Sonny talks to Lanie in his house about how Jax is shallow. She asks him why he has this opinion about Jax. He tells her that Jax is a playboy and a user, has as much depth as a piece of paper and Carly cannot see that. She tells him for a man who claims to be over his ex wife, he sure seems to be concerned about who she chooses to be with. He admits that he does have concerns about that. She tells him that its Carlys choice. He tells her thats true. But its a bad one to make. He does not want his kids hanging out there. So he believes he might have to resort to something drastic. She asks what he means. He tells her the might have to think of a way to get Carly away form Jax permanently.
Lucky rushes to find Maxie when he knows shes ODd on the pills. She is passed out on her bed. He busts into her room and attempts to revive her.
Elizabeth informs Jason that she had a conflict with Lucky. It scared her. Hearing that, Jason asks her if Lucky hurt her. She replies not physically. But she is very concerned about how the pills are really messing him up. He can tell that she has something else on her mind. She looks like she wants to tell him but cannot.
