The two approach the bar and Robert asks Duke if he is open for business.
Back at Kelly's, Mac tells Anna that perhaps Robert is just worried about her and that he has reason to be. Anna tells Mac that concern is one thing but Robert is being patronizing.

Mac asks Anna how Duke seems different. They are interrupted by the arrival of Maxie. Maxie is glad to see both Mac and Anna. She asks where Felicia is.

Sonny tells Alexis that whatever she thought she heard, she heard wrong. Alexis asks him to tell her that he didn't just offer Shawn a job. Sonny says no and says he has to leave to meet Dante and he rushes off. Alexis watches Sonny leave as Shawn starts to handle things with Alexis. Alexis tells Shawn she heard Sonny say he needed Shawn which usually implies something professional. Shawn tells her that he just did Sonny a favor. Alexis asks what kind of favor.

Mac tells Maxie that they are happy for her, too, but he had no idea that she was back with Spinelli. Maxie tells them that Spinelli isn't the father, Dante is. Anna is clearly confused by this announcement.
Shawn asks Alexis why he would work for Sonny when he runs Kelly's. Alexis reminds him that he's a trained Marine with a teaching credential so he's working below his pay grade in her opinion. He says that may be so but he still has a job to do and tries to retreat into Kelly's when Alexis tells him that he's avoiding the question. Shawn asks if he's on the witness stand. Alexis says he's not and apologizes but says she thought she merited a truthful answer and she asks again what he is doing for Sonny. Shawn says he just did a little job, that's all.

Over at their table, Sonny asks Dante and Lulu what is going on. Dante tells them that it's about their baby.
Mac and Anna both express concern to Maxie about Dante being the baby's father and that he is married to Maxie's best friend. Mac starts to leave to kill Dante but Anna stops him and Maxie tells them that they don't understand. Mac wants to know what he doesn't understand about and Anna tells him to sit down.

He takes Alexis up to his room to talk.
At their table, Mac is still very upset. He says he doesn't care how it happened, Maxie just broke up with Spinelli and Dante took advantage of her. Anna tries to quiet Mac down a bit as Maxie says she didn't sleep with Dante. Mac and Anna are confused by how she didn't sleep with Dante but she's having his baby. She says technically its Lulu's baby, too. Anna says she needs to sit down while Mac asks Maxie to explain. Maxie explains Dante and Lulu's situation to them.

She says she does not and stop turning it around on her because they are talking about him. Shawn says that running Kelly's is fine and it's clean but it's not what he is. She says she knows that whomever works for Sonny gets hurt and then blurts out that she cares about him. She says she cares about him and she doesn't want to see him get hurt.

She tells Mac how important having a baby is to Lulu and Dante and that if they can trust her with it, he should be able to as well.

Dante tells Lulu that it's really happening and how great it was that they have the support of their families. Lulu feels that Olivia wasn't telling them something.
