Today, GH opens with Carly napping on her couch at home. There's a knock at the door. It's Sonny. She tells him to go away. He tells her that they need to talk. She tells him to go away again. Then she gets up and moves the furniture away from the door. Before Sonny gets a chance to say anything, Carly tells him that her answer is no.
Over at the penthouse, Jason comes in. Sam is on her way out. Jason tells her to let him know if there is any change in Lorenzo's condition. Sam explains to Jason that she quit her job at the hospital.
At GH, Epiphany tells Elizabeth that they need to monitor Lorenzo's vitals. Epiphany points out that Liz may not be the best person to care for Lorenzo given her connections to Jason and Sonny. Liz tells Epiphany that she is a professional and that her patients are important to her.
Meanwhile, Patrick and Robin discuss Lorenzo's surgery. Patrick is upset because he thinks Lorenzo should be awake by now. He asks Robin if she thinks there's a chance that he botched the surgery.
In Lorenzo's hospital room, Skye sits by his side. She tells him that she and Lila Rae need him. She tells him that he has to survive this so he can take her to his ranch in South America and so he can teach Lila to ride horses. She promises to take care of him and vows not to leave him. Liz comes in to check on Lorenzo and notices a problem with one of his IVs. Skye asks Liz what's wrong. Liz says she's not sure and that she's going to get a doctor to come look at it. The opening credits roll.
Over at the Q mansion, Lulu and Dillon discuss Rick's missing day planner. Lulu thinks Monica took it. Dillon says that's too obvious, unless it's true. Lulu says he's no help. Lulu tells him that they need to find the book. Dillon tells her that they will have to beat the Q's at their own game. Then he tells her it takes a Quartermaine to know a Quartermaine.
At Kelly's, Maxie comes in to find Georgie sitting at a table. She asks Georgie what kept her out until two in the morning. Georgie tells her that she was over at Professor Marquez's place doing research. Maxie picks on her about the obvious game he's playing with her. Georgie insists the two are just friends as Professor Marquez walks in behind her.
Back at the penthouse, Sam explains to Jason that when she was arguing with Liz at the hospital, Ms. Sneed showed up and threatened to write them up. Then she tells him about how Epiphany jumped to their aid, but later told Sam she was ungrateful to Liz. Jason asks her if she's sure she doesn't want to work at GH. She tells him that she can't be around Liz. He tells her she should do what she wants to and she brings up applying for a job at ELQ.
Back at Carly's, Sonny tells Carly that he has warned her about walking into his office unannounced. She tells him that she saved his life by doing so. They argue and Sonny asks her if she's really going to let him go to prison.
Back at GH, Robin and Patrick join Liz and Skye in Lorenzo's room. Liz points out the IV in question. Robin and Patrick determine that it had been tampered with. They suggest someone may have injected something into the IV, which in turn caused him to have a heart attack. Skye asks him what this means. Patrick tells her that it's obvious someone is still trying to kill Lorenzo.
Back at Carly's, Sonny spits off some legal jargon about spousal privilege. He tells her that he's about to be indicted. She tells him that she doesn't care because she's going to marry Jax no matter what. He tells her that he commitment to Jax isn't as important as keeping him out of jail. She asks him if there is any other way. He tells her she could move out of the country. The kids eavesdrop from the stairs.
At the penthouse, Sam asks Jason how he would feel about her working at ELQ. He tells her to do what she wants, but warns her that he doesn't want her to get caught up in the Quartermaine craziness.
Over at the Q mansion, Dillon calls a family meeting to distract the family while Lulu searches for the daybook. Edward comes in complaining. Monica, Alan, Tracey and Alice follow. They decide it must be important if Dillon is calling the meeting. They begin to argue with each other. Lulu digs through the briefcases on the tables in the entrance hall. Dillon tells them he has called them together to discuss a serious problem. Edward tells him there are millions of serious problems in the house and tells him to be specific. They fight amongst each other some more as Lulu moves her search upstairs.
At Kelly's, Georgie sits with Marquez and the two talk about her research as Maxie listens from the counter. She interrupts their conversation and asks the professor if he usually has students over at his place until two in the morning. Then she asks him why he didn't have a male student do the research and Marquez tells Maxie that Georgie is special. He tells her that Georgie understands the importance of the research. Then he invites Georgie over again to read another chapter in his book. She agrees. Marquez leaves and Maxie teases Georgie some more. She points out that Marquez is interested in more than just her research abilities and tells her to go for it. Then she tells Georgie that things are going well in her life.
Back at GH, Lucky and Rodriguez have shown up to investigate the second attempt on Lorenzo's life. The two ask Robin and Patrick why it is unlikely that the surgery resulted in Lorenzo's heart attack. Robin assures Lucky and Rodriguez that the surgery went perfectly. Patrick tells them that Lorenzo was doing well the night before. Lucky asks Liz if anyone suspicious was hanging around the night before (in particular, Jason). She tells him that Jason was there, but that he didn't go near Lorenzo. Lucky asks why he was there and she says it must have been to drop Carly off so she could talk to Skye. Skye confirms her run in with Carly. Then she tells Lucky that she did see Father Ruiz roaming the halls. But, she tells him he was on the other side of the hospital. Skye gets a little huffy and Rodriguez points out that Lorenzo did go to Sonny's office with the intent of shooting him.

Carly tells her it's time to repay her for all the nice things she's done to help her during her chemo. She tells Alexis she needs legal advice and gives her a hypothetical situation (which just happens to be the situation she's in). Alexis sarcastically tells her it would make a great bedtime story. Carly comes clean and tells Alexis that Sonny shot Lorenzo and that she saw it. She tells her that Ric knows she saw it and she asks Alexis how to avoid taking the stand without marrying Sonny.
Over at Sonny's, Jason tells him not to worry about Carly and assures him that she'll marry him. Sonny says that her adamant refusal to wed him hurts his feelings a bit.

Sonny asks Jason who said it would be a marriage of convenience.

Alice suggests Dillon go back to film school, citing that he had better hair when he was in film school. The doorbell rings and Alice goes to answer it.

When Sonny asks them why they came, Michael tells him that it only makes sense they move back in since he and Carly have to get married again.
