Olivia tells Kate that she kept Dante a secret from Sonny for very good reasons. Sonny’s life was taking a turn and she needed to protect Dante from that. Kate tells her that she did, and Dante is a police detective now, so there is little chance that he will join the mob. Kate asks Olivia what will happen if Dante and Sonny cross paths. Dante will need to know the truth so he will know how to deal with his father. Olivia says no good can come from telling Dante the truth at this point.

Elizabeth tells Nikolas that she wishes she could fix things for him, but she will still be his friend. She will tell him when he is wallowing in self-pity, but it has to stop there. He says they need to think of an excuse not to spend time together. Lucky enters and asks Rebecca if she told Nikolas about this afternoon. She has not. Lucky tells Nikolas they are going for a Barbeque at with the Spencers.
Dante tells Johnny that the cops showing up like that seemed a little off, but they hadn’t touched anything and Corinthos is known to be anti-drugs, so he figured he had a good chance to walk. Johnny asks why he shut down on the lawyer. Dante says he knows he comes off as reckless, but in reality, he is careful. He didn’t know how Sonny would want to play something like that, so he kept quiet. Johnny says that is all he needed to know. Dante asks Johnny what is up with him and Lulu Spencer. He had heard she was his ex. Johnny tells him that he was no good for her, and now they are finished. Dante tells him he wanted to make sure. Dante tells him he notices that he and Miss Falconeri are getting involved. Johnny tells him they never expected to be where they are, but Olivia knows things that Lulu will never know. Dante punches Johnny.
