Starr says he has a lot of people holding grudges against him and he doesn't send people after them. He says that he knows no one likes him. Starr asks if he wants to go after them and he says no because none of them are stupid enough to go after people he cares about. Starr says she doesn't know Heather. He tells her that she's lucky. Starr says she knows that Heather escaped from a mental institution and she thinks Heather should be far away. Todd says any normal crazy person would but Heather could be in his wardrobe for all he knows. Starr urges him to concentrate on an enemy closer to home: the person who killed Cole and Hope.

She continues to push for what's going on and he says he can't tell her and that he is sorry. She says the last time he was sorry to her was when she walked in on him and Connie.

She wants to know what he did to get himself shot. Joe Jr. swears he did nothing. When Tracy calls his bluff by saying he won't mind if she calls the police, he tells her not to. Joe Jr. says he will tell her, then says it was Sonny. He says Sonny sent his men to kill him. Tracy doesn't believe that Sonny would order a hit on his wedding day. Joe Jr. says it would be a perfect wedding gift to Kate or maybe Sonny decides that his wedding would be a perfect alibi to get rid of him. He says he doesn't know how Sonny's mind works. Tracy wonders why a professional wouldn't finish the job. Joe Jr. says he didn't stick around to find out and asks for her help before he bleeds to death.

Sonny asks if Kate knew about Trey. Connie says she does and said she started paying attention while Kate and Trey are fighting when she saw the medal around Trey's neck.

Starr says she wants justice not revenge. Todd brings up that Connie can't be charged again because of double jeopardy. He says there are other options. Starr tells him that only Connie's husband can have her committed but Sonny isn't her husband, Johnny is.

Johnny says he married Connie because he loves her.
Tracy returns with a medical bag to find Joe Jr. laying on her couch. She is upset that he'd bleeding on an antique couch. Tracy says she doesn't know what to make of all of this. Joe Jr. tells her clean the wound, remove the bullet, stitch him up and bandage him up. Tracy says there's no pain killers in the bag, so he'll have to be happy with ibuprofen. She tosses him a wooden spoon she finds for him to bite down on and tells him that he's taking his life in his hands. He says no, he's putting his life in Tracy's hands and he trusts her completely.

She reminds him how ashamed he was about taking advantage of Kate but he says its true, they fell in love. Carly asks if he's in love with Connie, why did he ask Carly to run away with him.

Connie asks him to help her and Sonny starts to appeal to him as well. Connie asks Johnny if he wants the alternative instead.
Todd asks why Carly slapped him. She says because he's a son of a bitch. Todd says they knew that already but he thought they were friends. Carly asks what kind of friend lets her stay with someone he knows is cheating on her. Todd says he tried but Carly says he didn't. Carly says she trusted him so how could he have not told her about Connie and Johnny.
Connie demands that Johnny do something. Johnny sat down and orders Sonny to release Connie before he calls the cops to have him arrested for kidnapping, assault and false imprisonment.

Jason says he still can't reach Sonny. Sam says maybe it's for the best, but Jason insists that Sonny is Kristina's father and needs to know what happened. Sam asks why? So Sonny can order Jason to hunt Joe Jr. down and take him out? Jason said it won't happen if Dante finds Joe Jr. first. Sam begs Jason to let Dante handle it and says she wants to call John to get him involved. Jason says John is busy as Jason's phone rings. Sam wants to know what Jason knows about why John is busy. He doesn't answer, telling Sam he needs to take this call. John is calling Jason and telling him that there's a problem. Jason thinks Téa just didn't take the news well.
