Claudia and Alexis argue and Nikolas walks in. Claudia says that Alexis is going to have her arrested for standing in the office and Nikolas says that it would be a mistake. Alexis explains that Claudia was caught behind her desk rifling through papers. Nikolas brings up Jerry’s criminal behavior.

Anthony asks Johnny how he is being treated and Johnny says that it is as good as expected. Anthony says that Lulu put on quite a show, but Johnny says that it wasn’t a show and that Lulu is in bad shape. Anthony says that the crazier Lulu is, the easier it will be to get Johnny out of the mess.

Laura tells Lulu that she is there and that they will make it right. Lulu says that she will get the doctors, but Laura says that they already know because they were there when she woke up. Lulu asks why the doctors didn’t say anything to the family and Laura explains that she asked them not to because she didn’t want to disappoint her family if she relapses. Laura asks what has Lulu so upset. Lulu says that she is a patient and that she thinks she is going crazy like Laura.

Johnny says that they aren’t going to use Lulu to get him out of it because he doesn’t want her involved. Johnny says that he doesn’t want Lulu on the witness stand or in the court room. Anthony says that they shouldn’t waste his money and the court’s time unless they can make sure that Lulu is a mess in front of the jury. Anthony says that the best chance they have at an acquittal is to prove self-defense and to convince the jury that Lulu was crazy enough to keep him and Logan fighting all the time and provoked Logan into coming after Johnny. Johnny explains that it didn’t happen that way, but Anthony says that he doesn’t care what happened.

Nikolas suggests that Alexis wants Claudia arrested because she doesn’t like her. Nikolas says that Scott is trying to railroad Johnny and that Claudia is probably desperate to protect him.

Lulu tells Carly how wonderful she is. Carly says that she brought some tabloids too so that Lulu can know that the rich and famous are as messed up as they are. Lulu say that being there was awful for a while, but that she found a reason to hope and it changed things.

Johnny asks about Lulu. Nikolas says that Lucky thinks Lulu is headed for a complete breakdown. Nikolas says that Lucky thinks sending Johnny to jail is the only way to save Lulu, but that he disagrees because Lulu is in love with him. Nikolas says that it is in Lulu’s best interest for him to help Johnny and that is what he will do. Nikolas asks Johnny what he needs and Johnny says that Lulu needs to stay off the stand no matter what because Anthony wants his lawyers to break her down on the stand. Nikolas says that Johnny might want to listen to Anthony, but Johnny says that if Lulu ends up in the courtroom or on the witness stand then she will be gone to all of them forever.

Jerry meets with Jax and Jax asks about Karpov. Jax says that Karpov is staying at his hotel and that Carly has been flirting with him to get information for Jason. Jerry says that Carly shouldn’t speak to Karpov and that she shouldn’t be alone with him under any circumstances because Karpov is a sadist and that women who cross him end up dead.

Jerry goes to see Alexis and she says that her day has gotten worse. Jerry wonders why Alexis is trying to avoid him. Alexis says that she isn’t trying to avoid Jerry, but she has a murder trial pending and a lot on her mind. Jerry tells Alexis to get some sleep and that he will check in the following day.

Sam tells Lucky that she is healing and the wound will be fine in a couple of days. Sam says that Lulu will be okay and that she is probably fast asleep. Lucky thinks of something that Laura used to tell him and Lulu when they were falling asleep.

Matt says that the surgery was a success and that everything went very well. Maxie asks Epiphany how the surgery really went. Epiphany confronts Nadine about her constant badgering in the operating room. Epiphany says that Spinelli should be up and about in no time. Epiphany says that Maxie can see Spinelli as long as she makes it brief. Nadine says that she would have felt so much worse if the surgery had gone wrong because of her and Leyla says that she doesn’t know if she could have forgiven Nadine either.

Jerry asks when Sam became so concerned with Alexis’ sex life. Jerry says that it was rude for Sam to interrupt his picnic with Alexis. Sam says that she wishes he would leave Alexis alone. Jerry suggests that Sam wants him for herself. Sam says that nothing will happen between them while he is with Alexis, so maybe he should choose. Jerry asks how far Sam is willing to take it.
