Sam asks who Rafe's father is if it isn't Rafe Sr. Lucy tells her that his father is Caleb Morley, the one Sam calls John McBain. Sam asks if Allison had an affair. Lucy says she wouldn't say that. She says that Caleb used his powers of seduction on Allison and that Allison wasn't even sure about her son but Allison was very fair and Rafe had blond hair and green eyes. Rafe had black hair and taking one look at him, you could see that he looked just like Caleb and Rafe took off after he realized the baby wasn't his.
McBain asks Rafe if there's anyone he wants to call. Rafe says nothing. McBain has him taken to be booked. Anna asks why he was first on the scene. McBain tells her that Allison called and asked him to meet her. Anna asks if he knew her and he says he didn't but she thought she knew him. She looked at him and freaked out.
Sam asks about Rafe Sr. taking off. Lucy tells her that he left to protect Allison and Rafe Jr. because he was concerned that Caleb would come after them. He says that Rafe Sr. would be there now if he could so she is convinced that Caleb was the one who survived after going after Rafe. She tells Sam that no one had seen Allison, Rafe or Rafe Jr. since until now.
Molly tells TJ that it would have been selfish to hand Rafe a bag of stale bread and walk away. TJ is surprised that they exchanged names.

Elizabeth tells him that it isn't his fault, he's been in charge for all of five minutes. She also tells him that she knows how important ELQ is to the Quartermaines but his health is more important. AJ thinks that Edward would disagree. He shares with her that he has been in recovery and things have been going well, including building a relationship with Michael. He tells her that Sonny ruined that. He tells her that Sonny leaked the story to ruin his relationship with Michael.
Michael explains to Starr about Sonny meeting with Tracy. He guesses that Sonny found the evidence and leaked it to the papers to ruin AJ and make Tracy grateful.

Michael tells him that it reminds him that he has to get back to ELQ, predicting a long night.
