At the hospital, Michael explains to Starr that his father and Anthony and their families have been feuding for many years.

Todd goes to confront Sonny who wants to avoid the conversation telling him that maybe he should not believe everything he hears. But Todd tells him they are not done.

At the police station, Dante asks Johnny what hes doing there. Johnny replies that only the previous night, Dantes father held a revolver on him in front of many people and threatened to kill him and Anthony. Its obvious what he did and hes out of police custody. In response to that, Dante tells Johnny maybe instead of assuming that Sonny has done wrong, Johnny should go and find his grandfather whos also gone missing. Johnny tells Dante its obvious the cops are not going to do their job so he is going to do what he has to do.
Todd Manning and Sonny talk have a face off. Todd tells Sonny that he is not going to let him get away with what he did to Todds granddaughter.

But at the time of the accident, he was riding around with his brother, Detective Dante Falconeri. She asks if the two of them were out riding around to find their mutual father knowing what he was going to do. Michael tells Starr if there was some way to make her believe him he would. But he swears on his little sister, Jocelyns life that he was not covering for his father after he shot out Anthonys tires and has no evidence that he even did it. She asks in that case who did do it. He replies that it could be anyone. Anthony has many enemies.
Kate reveals to Ian that shes not sure what is worse; the thought of Sonny being responsible for the death of a little girl or of Sonny being falsely accused of it.
Olivia angrily tells Steven that hes a doctor and people trust him to do the right thing. And as logical that it may sound to sacrifice the bad kid for the good kid. Nobody can play God with things like that. He tells her that he made a choice that he has to live with. And the question is can she.
At the police station, Lulu tells Dante she bets that his police partner destroyed the files that could solve his case.
Kate/Connie tells Ian that she is having blackouts where she doesnt remember anything. She discovered a gun in her office. It may not have been Sonnys. She may have used it yet does not remember.
Michael tells Starr that he knows his father is capable of doing many bad things. If shes read articles about Sonny Corinthos, he understands why she would be suspicious. He knows a lot of negative things about his father. But Sonny has done some good things also and he loves his father.
At the Metro court, Blair and Carly continue to talk about their similar situations about their respective exs and fathers of their childrens patterns. They both declare that they can divorce them but their kids cannot. They both want to hear all the stories about the similar situations of their multiple marriages and divorces to Todd manning and Sonny Corinthos respectively. They both talk about all of the times they have covered for their ex-husbands but how now is the time when they are both done with doing that.
Todd tells Sonny he will try to be direct to him. He asks Sonny if he (himself) was a problem for Sonny, would Sonny kill him? Sonny replies, very calmly that that could be arranged. And he turns to go out the door. Todd then pulls out his gun, points it at Sonny and tells him he will have to kill Sonny first.
Lulu asks if Dante believes that his partner might have deleted photos so he cannot find out what really happened in his investigation. She might be covering for someone, they assume. Right then, his partner runs into Johnny.
Kate/Connie asks Ian if she thinks that she went off with the gun, shot out Anthonys tires to cause two people to be killed and she came home and acted as if nothing had happened. She tells him if hes such a great psychiatrist, he needs to help her with that. He then confirms that he believes she did not do it. He asks how, then, the gun got inside her office.
Sonny tells Todd that he thinks what Todd needs to do is think about the family he has left. He tells Todd if he shoots him, he wont get outside of it. He knows that if Todd pulls the trigger, Todd will be dead before Sonny hits the floor. Todd then thinks a while and then points his gun and Sonny as he concludes thats fine with him as long as he makes the man who killed his granddaughter pays.
Carly and Blair talk and laugh and bond over their very similar lives with their respective kids fathers and how they keep going back. They both reflect how theyve seen pictures of the others ex-husband and they both look hot. But they both see how those two men, messed up though they are, make their ex-wives feel alive.
Starr tells Michael she knows that her father is not perfect. In fact, after his last disaster, she swore that that was it. And right after Hope and Cole died, she opened her eyes in her hospital room to see her father. He did not listen to what she told him. She was so mad at him for everything that hes done. But all of a sudden, it didnt matter anymore. And all she wanted Todd to do was hold her and tell her everything would be ok. She breaks down crying. Michael tells her he understands. She tells him she hopes so because her dad said hed make Michaels dad pay for what he did to her daughter.
Todd tells Sonny that Port Charles is a cute little town. He knows how Sonny controls all the illegal activities in this town. Theres symmetry about how Sonny is going to make money form the gun that Todd has bought to blow him away. Sonny asks Todd what he has to do to make all of this go away. Todd tells him its very simple. What Sonny needs to do is die because hes a child killing bastard. Todd, again, points the gun and gets ready to fire.
At the hospital, Steven tells Olivia he knows that she is very religious and how much her faith means to her. She tells his that this is not merely for her to judge. This is for him to work out with his own conscious. She knows shes had a life with so many criminals. And that is one reason why she fell so hard for him. She believed that he was different. She tells him he clearly wanted to sacrifice one life for another. But is that his choice to make?
Johnny privately talks to Dantes police partner and tells him that he knows he wants her to manufacture evidence. He then remembers Kate/Connie telling Sonny that she has to kick Sonny to the curb once and for all and can do it with his help.
Right then, Kate/Connie concludes to Ian that she believes that Johnny was the shooter. He was angry at his father and wanted to frame Sonny for the crime. And she knows that is what happened.
Starr finds out from Michael that Sonny has been arraigned and tells him she has to get out of the hospital right now, whether the staff want her to or not. She has to let it be known that Anthony knows who shot out his tires. He tells her he doesnt want her to get his dad in trouble but can drive her to the police station and help her through this.
Blair and Carly drink and toast together and sound like they are going to become good friends with all the things they have in common. Blair then gets a call informing her that Starr has checked out of the hospital and his with Carlys son. They are going to the court arraignment. Carly tells Blair they both must also get there.
In the empty courtroom, Sonny tells Todd that if he shoots Sonny, hes making it that much easier for the real killer to get away with it. Todd cries and tells Sonny he cannot fix what has already happened. His daughter lost her little girl. He cannot fix the life that Sonny has so carelessly taken. But he can at least let his little girl know that justice has been served. Sonny then asks Todd what if he killed the wrong man. What will he have to give Starr then?
Dantes partner asks if he has any idea how the photos he needs for evidence may have disappeared. She seems to know that he might be accusing her. He remarks to Lulu that shes been transferred to many different precincts and know shtat somebody might be motivating her to manufacture or destroy evidence.
At the hospital, Steven tells Olivia that hes worried that he could get found out and lose his job. Its not just the two of them and Maggie that know what he did. Johnny Zacarra also knows.
Johnny goes to see Kate/Connie. She tells him she wondered when he was going to show up.
Right when Todd is ready to blow Sonny away, Carly, Blair, Starr and Michael all rush to prevent it from happening. Todd tells Michael he may now say good bye to his father. And we hear a shot fired.
