Tracy appears at Lukeís door. He didnít think she would show up. Tracy wouldnít pass up on the opportunity to see Luke die. Luke says he may still die yet. Tracy canít believe Luke has survived up to this point. He was kidnapped, held hostage, and took a bullet for Anna. She sarcastically calls Luke a hero. He hates the title. Tracy thinks it is shameful that not even Heather could kill Luke.
Anna vows to find Robin, if she is in this ward.

Spinelli asks her to go for coffee at Kellyís to celebrate a successful case. He thinks she can quit working for Todd now that Heather is in jail. Sam doesnít think Todd makes sense, so she is not done with the investigation.
Todd wonders how anyone can believe Johnny. He understands how Starr might have fallen prey. She is young and been through a lot. Carly, however, is a smart woman. How could she believe Johnny has changed? Johnny reminds Todd he told Carly he would lay off him. He didnít so it means Todd lied to Carly too. Todd explains how the camera was already there when he made his promise to Carly so it isnít a lie. He was going to erase everything. Johnny hopes he did. Todd explains he was going to erase the footage, but then he saw Johnny admitting to killing his granddaughter.
Jason attempts to leave the Metro Court. Diane has cancelled on him. Carly pressures him to tell her what happened with Elizabeth. He says the kiss just happened. Carly doesnít buy it. Nothing Ďjust happensí with Jason. Then she realizes the last time something happened with Elizabeth was when Jason saw Sam with someone else. OMG, was Sam with someone else? He admits to seeing Sam kissing McBain. He turns to leave.
Sam still insists Heather has something on Todd to make him hire her. Spinelli again pleds with Sam to end the case. Heather is in jail, Olivia in a coma, and they need money. Sam is not giving up. She thinks whatever Heather has on Todd has to do with her.
Johnny reminds Todd, Kate has taken the blame for the accident. Todd admires Johnny for getting a mentally ill woman to take the rap for his crime. He understands now why Johnny wanted to help Starr. He wanted Starr to be grateful to him. All through this exchange, Todd is removing his watch and jacket. He then wonders aloud how Hope felt being strapped to her car seat going over the cliff. Johnny gets angry and tells Todd to shut up. Todd agrees. It is time to stop talking. Todd rushes Johnny.
Tracy canít believe Luke has answered honestly for once. She tries to leave, but he calls ďSpanky, waitĒ. She informs Luke he no longer can refer to her as Spanky and he agrees. He wants to tell Tracy what he was going to say that night. She gives him 60 seconds. He apologizes, and she laughs. He wanted to tell her his feelings for Anna changed. He wanted her to know he was sorry if he led her on. She meant so much to him. Tracy wonders if it was all about her money. Luke gets angry and says it had nothing to do with her money. He knows he doesnít deserve her forgiveness, but he is asking for it anyway.
Elizabeth reminds Patrick of all the friends and family he has to support him. He explains it was Lulu and Maxie who got him into treatment. He recounts their confronting him about his addiction.

Ewen is telling Robin she is going to a special clinic in Switzerland. They will take care of her there. No one will know where she is. He is looking at a pamphlet for the hospital.
The nurse wonders why Anna thinks Robin was a patient. She explained another patient saw Robin there. When the nurse asks who the patient was, Anna tells her it was Heather. The nurse reacts poorly. Heather cannot be trusted at all. Anna begins to get heated and yells at the nurse. She doesnít understand why they let Heather out in the first place. Meanwhile Robin hears her motherís voice. She quietly calls out to her.
Tracy doesnít think Luke deserves her forgiveness. She feels as if Luke swindled her. Their first marriage was a fraud. Luke reminds Tracy of their second marriage. She agrees it was real, but Luke divorced her less than a year later. Luke defends himself. His whole life had fallen apart. By the time he got it back together he knew he didnít want to lie to Tracy anymore. Tracy wonders if Luke ever thought about how she felt about getting a divorce. He reminds her she was already involved and marrying Anthony. Tracy was blackmailed into marrying Anthony, and Luke didnít even try to help until months later. When Tracy needed him most, he was too busy with Anna. Luke points out his relationship with Anna is very recent. It came unexpectedly. This doesnít comfort Tracy. She thinks Luke expects her to wait for the relationship with Anna to blow up. Luke doesnít expect this at all. When Tracy tries to leave, Luke begs her to please let him be a part of her life. Tracy asks if he is willing to give up Anna. He responds no. She calls Luke an idiot, and he agrees.
Anna is still ranting to the nurse about their releasing Heather. Robin is still quietly calling out to Anna. Ewen is beginning to worry. He puts the pamphlet on Robinís bed and he goes to the door. Anna blames the nurse for releasing Heather. She informs the nurse all the crimes Heather has committed. Ewen opens the door and begins signaling to the nurse behind Annaís back. She wants the nurse to get rid of Anna. The nurse tells Anna she would have kept Heather committed, but it wasnít up to her. Anna insists on searching every room of the hospital. The nurse begins to show Anna around.
Ewen is now on the phone frantically telling someone about Anna being in the hospital and searching all of the rooms. Robin knocks the pamphlet on the floor. Ewen asks the caller what he wants him to do.
Patrick tells Liz Ewen wondered if Jason would be an issue for them. Patrick told him yes. Patrick thinks Elizabeth and Jason share a bond over having a child together. Liz interjects Jason is a married man. Even though his marriage may not be working, she knows he loves Sam. Patrick notes Lizís soft spot for Jason. He remembers Robin having the same soft spot. Patrick will never understand it. Liz doesnít feel like she has to justify her feelings to anyone. Patrick just wants what is best for her and doesnít want to see her hurt. Elizabeth just wants to help Jason. He is hurting right now. He doesnít want Liz pining away for unavailable men. Ewen is there and available. Life is short.
Todd is choking Johnny. Johnny apologizes and says it was an accident. He gets Toddís hand free and punches him. Todd falls to the floor. Todd tries to go for Johnny again, but this time Johnny has a bat and tells Todd to back off. Johnny never meant to kill Starrís family and he feels horrible about it. Todd rails he should have killed Anthony in the comfort of his own home. He should have never just shot at a car without knowing who was in it. Johnny would do anything to take that night back. Todd points out Johnny was so remorseful he tried framing Sonny for it. Todd has no idea how he got Connie to take the blame. He tells Johnny he was wrong when he told him they were alike. Todd would never kill a child then hide behind that childís mother. Johnny canít believe Todd has never done anything he regretted. Johnny wonders if Todd has anything weighing on his conscience.
Spinelli doesnít understand why Sam thinks Todd is keeping a secret about her. Sam canít get passed the crumbled up article about the babyís death.

She canít understand why Todd hired her, knowing she was a PI. Sam thinks Todd wants to know something about her and she is determined to figure out what that is. Spinelli raises the possibility that Sam is doing this as a distraction. Sam is not giving up. Spinelli respectfully points out, didnít she just give up on her marriage.
Tracy thinks she and Luke are a perfect match. She wants to be up close when Anna begins to see Luke for who he is. Tracy understands Luke in ways Anna never will.

Johnny finally admits to Todd it was him. It has been tearing him up since it happened. Todd counters it has been tearing up Starr. Johnny is vowing to make it up to her.
