Sonny asks her if she recongized the voice and she tells him that she could tell becasue he sent him away too quickly. Sonny has a feeling that this has something to do with Lorenzo Alcazar. Carly tells Sonny that it sounded like the guy that was asking about the vault security. Sonny asks if Lorenzo put anything in the vault. She says she doesn't know. He wants to know who would know. She says the assistant manager might know. Carly creates a distraction by walking over to Mr. Craig and attempts to take his mask off, but he puts a gun up under her chin. Sonny gets the info on Lorenzo's shipment. Sonny signals to Sam not to set off the silent alarm that closes the vault. The vault closes. One of the goons gets out, but one is trapped in there with Maxie and the briefcase. Mr. Craig sees Sonny's signal and asks Sam what she did.

Five tells her that she's in the vault with Three. Mr. Craig is angry. Carly tells Mr. Craig that the vault won't open again for the next 12 hours.

Jason shows up and hesitates to approach the door when he see the black paint on the windows. He walks up slowly to the door and finds a small area where the goons missed. He sees everyone standing around and then sees men with gun. He walks back and then the cops arrive. Jason warns Mac that they have a hostage situation on their hands. Lucky and Cruz are also there. Lucky tells them that Elizabeth, Nikolas, and Emily were waiting for him in the lobby. Jason says Sam is in there. Lucky asks about Lulu, but Jason says he didn't see her. Lucky tells Mac about the fundraiser and Cruz tells them that they can be dealing with hundreds of people. Mac remembers that Maxie is work and Robin just booked a room at the Metro Court. Jason warns them that the guys in there are professionals and that they want whatever is in the vault. He wants them to let them have what they want and get everyone out of there. Mac assures Jason that they have a strong protocol when it comes to hostage situations. Mac pulls his men in to talk strategy, he tells them to evaulate the rest of the hotel. Jason calls Spinelli to tell him to come to the Metro Court with his computer. Luke comes over and asks Lucky what's up. Lucky tells him about the botched robbery. Luke is worried about Lulu. Lucky tells him Nikolas, Emily, and Elizabeth are in there too. Lucky leaves Luke to help. When Scott appears behind Luke, Luke begins sniffing around. He turns around and sees Scott. Luke tells him that he doesn't want him bring Laura daisies or anything else. Spinelli arrives with laptop in hand. He immeditaley gets to work. Jason wants answers fast. Spinelli gives them to him as fast as he can. Spinelli hacks into the vault. Spinelli and Jason find out everything about the briefcase. The items in the briefcase aren't listed. Spinelli sees something weird. He tells Jason that every other item has a listed estimated value, but the briefcase estimated value is priceless. This worries Jason.
Maxie is in the vault with Three. She tells him if he wants to kill her he should get it over it, but warns him that it could be hours before they get out and he doesn't want to be locked in a room with a dead person. She then believes that he wants to kill her so he could have all the oxygen. Three tells her that they won't run out of oxygen. She then tells him that the bullet could ricochet off the ceiling and goes off the walls and hits him between the eyes. He tells her that's the stupidest thing he has ever heard, but she's convinced that it could happen. He tells her that it could only happen in a cartoon. She tells him that he doesn't want to die with a stranger. Maxie doesn't understand why they want the breifcase.
Sonny tells Mr. Craig and he's goons they should leave out the service entrance throuugh the dock and volunteers himself to be their hostage. Carly promises to not press charges. Mac gets on the megaphone and warns them that the Metro Court is surrounded. Mr. Craig announces that he's not leaving without the briefcase and the briefcase will be locked in the vault for 12 hours, so there's no reason why they can't get along until then. He suggests a game. He tells them they will say their name and one word that describes them. He demostrates it, he introduces himself as number one. Then he comes up with "fun one". He tells them it doesn't have to rhyme, but the will get extra points if it does, he then warns them that if they drop the pen holder, they will be their human shield for them to get out. He tosses it to Carly and everyone gets a chance. They choose to say; "kick-ass Carly", "menacing Max", "screw-you Lulu", "nightmare Nikolas", "baby's breath Elizabeth", "intern Emily", "job in Robin", howlin' Alan", "sweet Sam" and "ready Eddy". When it gets to the assistant manager, Mr. Craig puts a gun to his head to add some pressure because he was the one that told Sonny about what was inside the vault. Mr. Craig tells them that he has found the first loser of the night and is about to pull the trigger, but stops when the assistant manager speaks he says "Marty mcfarty" and the game continues. Marty tosses it to Sonny who says "Michael Cornithos Jr." Mr. Craig congratulates everyone for playing the game right. He then shots Robin, who falls over on the couch in pain.
