In his apartment, Michael comes out of the shower. Michael and Starr talk about their food fight and the aftermath. Starr tells him that he even helped her forget about her father for a while. She guesses that he's on his way to prison. Michael opens the door and gets his copy of The Sun. He shows her the headlines announcing that Todd, Heather and Lucy have escaped.
Heather, Todd and Lucy arrive at Wyndemere to hide out. Lucy is worried that
Wyndemere isn't deserted but Heather assures her that it is. Todd says that he
thought she had a plan. She says that they escaped, so there it is. She says
that she thinks that Wyndemere is the obvious choice for escapees to hide out so
she is hoping the police think they are too smart to hide there and won't look
there. Lucy hopes Caleb thinks the same thing.
At the PCPD interrogation room, McBain is briefing a team on Heather, Todd and Lucy escaping from Ferncliff. He tells the officers that the escapees got away in Kevin's rental car but it's been dumped. He also tells them that if they see the escapees, call in for back up instead of approaching them alone. McBain then tells the officers about each of the escapees. He does warn them that when Lucy finds out that Allison has been murdered, she will do whatever it takes to get to Rafe.
Down in PCPD lockup, Johnny tells Rafe that he hears that Rafe killed his
mother. Rafe says he's wrong. He says McBain killed his mother.
McBain tells his team that Todd and Heather are dangerous and tells the that the last time Todd and Heather got together, they kidnapped Sam's baby.
In the PCPD bullpen, Alexis, Molly and Sam are waiting as Kristina is brought to them. Sam and Molly wonder how she's doing and she says she's hanging in. Alexis tells Kristina that she's been trying to find out why the judge canceled her arraignment. Kristina says that's a good thing because it gave Sonny more time to talk Connie into dropping the charges. She asks if it worked.
At Manning Enterprises, Connie is very impressed with her headline about Todd,
Heather and Lucy escaping. Olivia walks in and Connie shows off the headline to
Olivia who isn't impressed. She then shows Olivia a story she published about
Rafe accusing McBain of killing Allison and tells Olivia she was impressed with
that one, too. Olivia tells her that it's horrible but Connie says horrible
sells papers. Olivia reminds Connie that Heather tried to kill her. Connie
assures her that the police will find Heather and put her in jail like they are
At the courthouse, Sonny and Shawn are discussing how difficult Kristina's situation is for both Kristina and Sonny. Sonny tells him that he thinks Connie is insisting on pressing charges to drive him away. Shawn says that to his understanding, Connie is the only witness to Kristina's assault on her. He asks Sonny if he should make Connie disappear. Sonny asks what he is suggesting. Shawn says he just keeps Connie away from the arraignment. There can't be a prosecution with the only witness not showing up. Sonny tells him that he can't have Connie grabbed twice. Shawn agrees he's probably right but asks Sonny why.
Olivia starts to bring up Kristina when Connie tells her about the book. She says she's leaked chapter one, plans to leak two more chapters before the book release on March 12. She is certain it's going to be a huge hit. Olivia says she'll make sure to congratulate Molly when it is. Connie isn't happy about the comment and wants to know what Olivia wants. Olivia wants to talk about what Connie is doing to Kristina.
Alexis tells Kristina that Sonny was unsuccessful in convincing Connie to drop the charges. Kristina is hopeful that she will at least get bail. Sam tells Kristina that everything will be ok and Alexis tells her that she's going to do everything she can to convince the judge that she was acting out in grief over Trey. As Alexis and Sam talk to Kristina, Molly notices the story on the back of the paper that an officer is reading, reporting on Rafe accusing McBain of killing Allison.
Johnny tells Rafe that he's not judging especially since he killed his own grandfather and two other people. He tells Rafe that keeping everything inside is worse than prison. Rafe tells Johnny that he's innocent. Johnny tells Rafe that if that's true, he hopes Rafe is exonerated. He also advises him that if it's not and he has no history of violence, he should get an attorney who can work a plea bargain for him. An officer comes to take Johnny to sentencing. He tells Rafe that Johnny is going to die in prison and so is Rafe. Johnny tells the officer to take it easy on Rafe and give Rafe his food as he's taken away to go to sentencing.
Molly wishes Kristina luck and Alexis leads Kristina out to go to her arraignment. Once they are gone, Molly heads for the holding cells.
Sam goes to the interrogation room to talk to McBain. McBain asks where Daniel
is. Sam tells him that Daniel is with Monica at the Quartermaine mansion with
extra security plus Alice. She's more concerned about how McBain is. McBain
wonders what is wrong with Ferncliff that Heather is able to escape multiple
times and he mentions he was going to transfer Todd the day before but got tied
up in the case. Sam reminds him that it's not just any case, that he's being
accused of murder.
As he is given his breakfast, Rafe receives a visit from Molly.
Heather tells Lucy and Todd that they should show her some gratitude for getting them out of Ferncliff. Lucy complains of being hungry then sees Todd with a snack bar. She takes it from him and Heather decides she wants half. Lucy refuses but wants to see the paper to see if Kevin is ok. Todd is angry over the front page saying it's libel and slander and he's angry over the terrible picture of him.
Starr is angry over Todd escaping Ferncliff with Heather and wants to know what is wrong with him Michael assures her that Todd probably doesn't have the resources to get very far. Unless, of course, Starr wants him to get away. Starr reminds Michael that she is the reason Todd was behind bars because she wouldn't help him, so why would she want him to get away. Michael reminds her that she was feeling guilty the night before. Starr tells him that one bright side is that ELQ is no longer on the front page. Michael tells her that is something but the damage has been done. He is getting ready to go to Kristina's arraignment because she needs him more than AJ does right now. He is dreading seeing Sonny and reminds Starr of Sonny's meeting with Tracy, his being there with Connie when Michael and AJ arrived and of Sonny's motives.
Sonny tells Shawn that when he had Shawn pick up Connie before, he was trying to get through to Kate. He has since realized that Connie isn't an out of control symptom of the D.I.D. but a real human being with feelings who is confused. Shawn tells Sonny that he's going soft on her.
TJ catches up with Alexis and Kristina at the courthouse. He asks about Molly and Alexis tells him that Molly is at the PCPD waiting for Sam. TJ wishes Kristina luck and heads out to look for Molly. Alexis tells Kristina that she's got to prepare and asks if Kristina is ok waiting for her alone. Kristina says she's not in a cell so she's good. Alexis goes into the courtroom to prepare for Kristina's arraignment. As she goes to sit down, Johnny approaches her and asks why she's in cuffs. Kristina tells him that she's being arraigned for attempted murder on Connie.
Connie thinks that Sonny put Olivia up to pleading Kristina's case. Olivia tells her that Sonny doesn't even know she's there and just mentioned that Connie is being hard on Kristina. Connie tells her that Kristina tried to kill her. Olivia reminds her that Kristina is hurting over Trey. She also says that she thinks that Connie doesn't want to get back at Kristina, but at Sonny for being in love with Kate and not Connie.
Todd was able to find some clothes in one of the wardrobes upstairs. He puts on a coat and heads out. Heather wants to know where he's going but he won't tell her. Heather plans to go see Steven and Todd sarcastically tells her that he's sure Steven will love that. He wishes Lucy luck slaying McBain and leaves.
McBain explains to Sam how Lucy, Heather and Todd escaped Ferncliff after either Heather or Todd assaulted him from behind while he spoke with Lucy. Sam is surprised that Lucy just left him there but figures it's how bad she wants to get to Caleb. She decides it all doesn't make sense. What makes sense is that Rafe killed Allison. McBain tells her how he found Rafe kneeling next to Allison with the murder weapon in his hand. Sam doesn't understand why Rafe is accusing McBain.
Rafe asks Molly if she's allowed down there. She says no but she needed to see that he was ok. He tells her that his mother is dead. She tells him that she knows and she's sorry. She then asks if he did it.
The forensics report is delivered to McBain. It's a report on the prints on the murder weapon. He confirms that it has Allison's and Rafe's prints on it as well as a partial. Sam asks if it's enough to clear Rafe and asks who's it is. McBain tells her it's possible then tells her that the partial print is his.
Lucy reads about Allison's death in the paper and is upset. She tells Heather that Caleb was trying to get to his son. Heather doesn't know how a vampire can father a child. Lucy starts to explain that Caleb was not wearing his ring which allowed him to create a child. Heather looks at the paper and tells her that the kid killed his mother. Lucy tells her that's not true. She says it was Caleb who killed Allison and he's getting away with it because he's got the PCPD convinced he's a cop.
Sam tells McBain that its all a coincidence. McBain says that Lucy is convinced that he is Caleb and Rafe pointed him out as the killer. Sam says that Rafe is lying. McBain says add to it the partial print and maybe Rafe is telling the truth.
Rafe tells Molly that he didn't kill Allison. Molly reminded him that he told her that life would be better without Allison. He says that doesn't mean he killed her. Molly says that they found him with the weapon. He says not from killing his mom. He says he wouldn't kill her. Molly says McBain wouldn't either. Rafe says that he saw McBain do it. Rafe says that maybe she doesn't know him like she knows McBain, but he would never hurt his mother that way.
Connie gives Olivia her coat and tells her to leave. Olivia asks her to take a step back and look at the big picture. Kristina loved Trey. Connie says that she did, too. She says they're both hurting and lashing out. Connie says she's angry. Olivia tells her not at Kristina. She tells her that it's not going to change anything to put Kristina in prison. It's not going to stop the pain, it's going to ruin Kristina's life and make Sonny hate her. Connie asks what she's supposed to do. Olivia urges her to be a bigger person than what she's seeing now. Deal with her feelings for Sonny and let Kristina go.
Sonny says he's not going soft, he just doesn't want to see Kate hurt. Shawn reminds him that she's Connie, not Kate. Alexis joins them and asks if they heard from Connie. Shawn says they are talking about her and Sonny says he's not heard from her. She tells Sonny that they need to hope for something good because based on the paperwork she's seen, it's not going well for Kristina.
Johnny tells Kristina that he doesn't blame her for going after Connie. He says he's dreamt of doing it, too. He tells her that she's a good kid. Kristina says that she's not a good kid. She wanted to kill Connie and wanted her dead with all of her heart. She points out that Johnny didn't mean to kill Cole and Hope.
Michael asks Starr is she's going to head over to the courthouse, knowing that Johnny's sentencing is about to happen. Starr says she's going to take a long shower then head over. Michael wishes that he could be there for her because he knows it's going to be hard for her. Starr hopes that Johnny gets life while Michael hopes that Kristina gets her life back. They agree to find each other after the hearings and Michael leaves. Starr heads to go take her shower when there's a knock at the door. She answers it to find Todd there. Todd asks her not to call the cops. He just needs to talk to her one last time.
Lucy tells Heather that everyone wrote her off as crazy but she was right. She's worried about Rafe being in a jail cell, accused of murder and vulnerable to Caleb.

Sam steps out of the room to let him take the call. TJ arrives and asks Sam where Molly is. Sam says she's at the courthouse but TJ says that Alexis told him that Molly was there, waiting for her.
Molly says she's sorry about everything that happened. Rafe asks if she believes he's innocent. Before she can answer, a guard finds her and asks what she's doing there.

He says it's not goodbye just see you later. He asks if that's ok. They hug and exchange "I love you"s. Todd leaves her.
