She tells Carly that Todd is a kidnapper and is not her friend. Carly tells Sam that maybe Heather lied to Todd like she did everyone else.

Carly encourages Sam to go home to her son. Sam wants to know why she believes Todd. Carly tells her because Todd looked at her and promised he didn't do it. He swore on his daughter's life.

Sam promises to get to the bottom of what Todd did with Molly's book. Carly tells her to give it a rest. Sam tells Carly that it isn't her fault that Johnny made a fool of her. She said she's just trying to tell Carly that she's smart and should trust her instincts, that shouldn't let Todd make a fool of her because Jason wouldn't want that. She leaves Todd and Carly alone.
