Kristina showed up and sided with Trey. This makes Joe slightly happy. He comments Sonny is going to push Kristina right into Treyís arms. He calms down and asks when he and Kristina are getting married. Trey slows him down. He and Kristina just started seeing each other. They are going to take things slowly. Joe canít understand why Trey would take things slow, especially after what he just did to him. Things are going to get worse if Sonny finds out Trey is Joeís son. Trey needs to be married to Kristina to protect himself. Joe thought Trey said Kristina liked him. Trey agrees they do like each other. He compliments Kristina. Trey tells Joe she is a little messed up about her father, but they have a good time together. Joe tells Trey to propose to Kristina.
Kristina canít remember Sonny ever asking her for advice. Sonny thinks Kristina is exactly the person who can help him out with what he needs. Kristina thinks it is about Michael and Starr. Kristina doesnít really like Starr, but she seems to make Michael happy, and you canít argue with him about it. Sonny doesnít fault Michael for getting involved with Starr.

He tells Kristina if you love someone, you hope it is the beginning of something and not the end. She agrees. Sonny begins digging in his pocket for something. He shows Kristina an engagement ring and announces he is going to ask Kate to marry him. Kristina is so happy.
Carly asks Johnny why Joe would want to take Sonny down. Johnny tells Carly Joe is upset because Sonny took Joeís fatherís business from him. Carly knows a little bit about what went on with Scully.

Carly realizes Joe wants Johnny to help him. Johnny concedes. Carly theorizes Joe will cut Johnny out when he is done, and Port Charles will be a blood bath. Johnny turned Joe down.
Trey would do anything for Joe. Joe just wants Trey to get on with it and propose. Trey thinks Kristina would laugh at him if he proposed now. It is too soon. Joe thought Kristina was all over Trey. Trey disagrees, and said he just said she liked him. Kristina is not an idiot. Trey is not going to be able to just steam roll her. Trey tells Joe about Kristinaís past with Kiefer and how he used to beat her. Joe argues there are always two sides to every story, and it is possible she isnít telling the truth. Trey argues no one deserves to be treated that way.

Kate suggests Dante go get Olivia some gelato. He agrees and asks Kate to tell Lulu he will be back soon.
Lulu tells Maxie she and Dante want a family, however they would do it based on a time table. They want a house first. Maxie wonders how she could be thinking about real estate right now. Lulu remembers how horribly Dante reacted to the news Lulu was going into business with Johnny. Maxie tells her to slow down. She should take the test first. Lulu insists she is not having a baby because she and Dante have not even discussed it. Maxie reminds her they are newlyweds, anything is possible. Either way, Lulu has missed a period, so something else could be wrong. Lulu needs to take the test.

Scully will have to bring Sonny down without him. Carly doesnít think Scully can do anything from his jail cell. Johnny will not be helping him.
Alexis canít believe Jerry came back for her. She wants to know what he means. Jerry cares about Alexis and he always has. She wonders why he tried to kill all the people she loved then. It wasnít personal. Jerry was either paid to do it, or that person was in the way. Alexis sarcastically says that explains everything. No matter what Jerry does to other people, it doesnít affect how he feels for Alexis. She tells Jerry she loathes him. Jerry wonders if she feels the chemistry between them. He touches her arm. Alexis thinks it is pathetic for Jerry to think he can just show up and she will forget how insane he is. She cannot forget how much he has hurt people, including Jax. Jerry wants to know if Alexis is sure she doesnít want him. She is sure. He thinks Alexis is lying and pulls her in closer.
Jason wonders how Todd got the photo. Sam doesnít think it matters. He comments it must have mattered to John since he was charged with assault.

Jason asks McBain for confirmation.
Lulu runs into Dante in the hall of the hospital. He asks where she is going.
Ewen praises Kate on her handling of Dante. He knows they are all going through a rough time with Olivia and he thinks she really calmed Dante down. Kate says it has been a long time since she has felt strong enough to support someone else. Ewen thinks Kate is almost fully intergraded. Kate still knows she cannot be fully whole until she remembers shooting out Anthonyís tires. Kate wonders if she is still a danger to Sonny.
Kristina admires the ring Sonny has bought Kate. She would love a ring just like it when she gets engaged. She notes not quite as big as Sonnyís ring. Sonny jokes she better get ready for a much smaller ring. If it is Trey she is going to get engaged to, he cannot afford a ring like this. Sonny tells Kristina marriage is a serious commitment. If a guy cannot afford a ring, then he cannot afford to give Kristina the life she deserves. Kristina and Trey have just started dated. They have not talked about rings at all. Kristina reminds Sonny Trey has graduated from Yale. He is very smart and probably has something in the works for his future.
Joe knows Sonny will not beat up his own son in law. Trey must hurry up and get Kristina to marry him. Joe doesnít think Trey and Kristina have to stay together forever. He just wants them together long enough so they can join their assets. Trey is reluctant to marry Kristina under false pretenses. He thinks she has been hurt enough and doesnít want to hurt her anymore. Joe compares his issues with those of Kristina. He too has gone through a lot. Trey reminds Joe they made it through all their problems, and the murder charges are never going to stick. Joe informs Trey when he gets out of jail, Sonny will come after him. He will have to run and they will never see each other again. The only way to avoid this is to get Kristina involved. Trey wishes there was another way. Joe says there just isnít.
Carly is proud of Johnny for walking away. Johnny says he didnít completely walk away. He had money from the strip club and he stashed some other money away, so financially he is okay. Carly is so happy to not have to worry about mob related business affecting her and her children. When she was with Sonny she would worry every time the phone rang hoping no one was shot. She had to put Morgan in military school to keep him safe. She is happy Jax is Josslynís father. Sonnyís enemies donít want her. Now with Johnny out of the business he can bring any danger to her. Josslyn is safe.
Kate still worries if Connie is still around she may try to hurt Sonny again. Ewen agrees while it may be possible for Connie to resurfaces, he doubts it will happen. He assures Kate she is safe. She has made great progress. Kate feels so much better. She feels as if she can trust herself again.
Alexis breaks her kiss with Jerry and slaps him. Alexis tells Jerry anything she ever felt for him was based on a lie. Jerry disagrees. He says their closest moments are when he told her the awful truth. Alexis made herself believe since he was Jaxís brother, he must have some good in him. Jerry thinks that could be true. Maybe he is waiting for the right person to bring the good out in him. Alexis doesnít think Jerry came back for her, but he reiterates he did. He wants her company. Alexis explains as an officer of the court, she must call the police and let them know he is there. Jerry laughs and tells her to go right ahead.
Sam is frantically explaining to Jason Johnís reasons for being there. It is all about him trying to get his son back and nothing to do with seeing Sam.

Alexis is rambling on how horrible Jerry is; all the while trying to get her cell phone to work. He argues that he does have a soul and Alexis has seen it.

All he can do is say he is sorry. Jason remembers how they used to feel about each other. He wonders if they can get back to that place. He is willing to try whatever it takes to give them another chance. He asks for Samís forgiveness.
Sam knows she should say yes, but she doesnít know if she can. Every time she sees a baby she feels her pain all over again. She loves Jason, but she canít help but blame him. She feels as if she always will. Jason has to stop if all he is to her is a reminder of losing her baby. Sam canít help but think if the baby lived things would be different.
