Carly lectures AJ in her home, assuming they are alone and not overheard, telling him that because of his stupidity and unwillingness to cooperate, Todd does not buy for a minute that they are having a relationship. He tells her its obvious to anyone that they are not and he is not as motivated as she is to have Todd believing what she wants Todd to believe.
Unknown to them, Todd sits alone at Kellys, playing the video that hes planted inside the stuffed bunny at her home, which confirms all the proof he needs, of the two of them having this very conversation. He laughs in smug satisfaction. Lucy notices him and asks him what hes cackling to himself about.
Dante goes to pick up Olivia to take her to his and Lulus baby shower. But he sees his mom is not dressed and not ready. She tells him shes not going.
Luke goes to pick up Lulu. They are both happy but know that Dantes family might not be.

Luke asks Lulu if shes gotten any more of those mysterious gifts that may be from Helena Cassadine. Lulu is not worried about that.
Laura informs Scott Baldwin, for the first time, that her daughter just wants to invite her family over to see the picture of her first sonogram. And she admits that shed rather he not come with her. He asks if its because she believes Lukes absurd theory that he is going to endanger Lulu. She laughs and tells him no. But he can clearly see that she is mindful of the fact that Luke is single and not seeing Anna and just what the status of their relationship is.
Olivia tells Dante she is not up to going anywhere or seeing anyone when her fiancé is ready to go to prison for murder. She tells her son he needs to take the Cannoli that she baked. But he is not ok with that arrangement.
Molly is concerned about Rafe having to stay in a foster home. Sam and John are with the two of them and want to help him. John offers to let Rafe stay at his home for a while. He tells John he doesnt have to do that. But he can earn his keep by doing chores around Johns home. Sam then asks John if hes sure this is a good idea.
Lucy finds Todd and tells him shed like to know what is wrong with him remembering that the two of them were both in Ferncliff. He tells her that he could be classified as suffering with some sort of mental illness. She asks if hes not happy with the fact that hes been cleared of all charges and reminds him that now that shes also beat the charges and is free, she wants to work to get the Nurses ball underway. He admits hes not ready to be a part of that. But she tells him that he needs to attend and see the talented people perform. And if he doesnt want to, its his loss. She tells him that she is happy. She got her man back.
AJ asks Carly why she invited him over there. She tells him she knows that Todd is snooping. Jocelyn saw him. He asks her what he wants from him and why he should get involved in her unfinished issues with her psycho boyfriend. If shes really done with Todd and doesnt want him, then why does she care if she fools Todd with an absurd farce that shes sleeping with AJ?

But she knows he has feelings for Carly and was devastated to have lost Carlys trust and cause her not to want to see him anymore. He tells her hes not worried about that however. He has undisputed proof that Carlys fake boyfriend is a fake. Lucy tells him even if thats the case, it still does not mean that Carlys interested in him. He tells her he wont listen to anything negative. But she tells him that maybe its easier said than done to win someone back if theyve caught him in a lie. However, she admits that if something is worth fighting for, sometimes one cannot give up.
Sam privately asks John if hes really ready to adopt a teenage boy. He works too much and has a very demanding schedule and life. But he tells her he spends too much time alone in his home wallowing at the sight of the muted television. She assures him she does not believe hes a wallower and very much admires him for what he wants to do for Rafe but wants to make sure hes up to it.
Dante manages to get his mom to reconsider joining him and Lulu.
Luke tells Lulu that he knows that Scott Baldwin still blames her for his sons death. So they might need to beware of him.
Laura tells Scott that she really hopes he understands how she has spent so much time away from her daughter, what little mother-daughter time they have left is precious to her. He tells her he understands. He tells her he is nervous about some things. He declares to her that he loves her and has always loved her.

AJ tells Carly he really has better things to do with his time than help her pull off this absurd scam to Todd. Its ruining his personal life. Hearing that, she demands to know what type of personal life he could possibly have and with whom or what. He tells her that last night he was supposed to meet Elizabeth for dinner. But she had to walk in on seeing Carly kissing him. Hes finally met a good woman whom he respects and who respects him and whos worth it. And hes had to lie to Elizabeth as well as to their son. Is Carly not blackmailing him by putting him up to doing that in order for her to tell him who the next Quartermaine heir is? But now hes through. Hes done lying to Elizabeth and to Michael. But she reminds him that Luke may have already found out and might tell Tracy before he finds out about the heir. So maybe AJ should think long and hard about whats important to him. Todd walks in carrying the white bunny and smugly asks How is the happy couple?
Molly asks her mom what happened and why wont social services approve John? She tells them all that they do not believe that John meets the requirements and guidelines. She is terribly sorry but has to take Rafe back. Molly tells her mom no. thats not fair.
Lucy talks to Scott Baldwin about his current prospects with Laura. He admits that he proposed to Laura. And Laura told him she could not make the decision until she had found out whether she had a chance with Luke or if hed moved on.

Laura and Luke join in and they are all happy. She faces her ex-husband and hugs him.
When Todd walks into Carlys home to see her with AJ, he tells them he wants to see them together. She asks why on earth he wants to see that. Carly asks him what his problem is and what he wants. He tells her that its going to be a very difficult thing for him to get over her. So maybe she can help him make the process easier. If he can see how the two of them love each other, it will be easier for him to go about his day. He and Mr. Bunny here can watch and bear witness. AJ tells Todd this is weird even for him. Todd tells them the only way he can let Carly go is if the two of them have sex. She demands to hear what he said again. He clarifies that he said he wants them to have sex. It could be sofa sex, carpet sex. Any kind of sex. In response to that, Carly exclaims there s no way theyre going to put on a sex show for him. He asks why on earth not. She replies because its disgusting. Todd then laughs and reveals that he has a hidden camera inside the bunny that he bought for Jocelyn. She asks him if hes spying on her. He confirms that Mr. Bunny and he heard and saw everything . And she and AJ are so busted. He tells them that this ridiculous scam that they are together ends right there. He saw it all. But Carly tells him she knows all about his spying. She knows what a nanny cam is and she and AJ knew what he was up to. But at that point, AJ tells her hes through. Hes not going to get in the middle of her mess with her psycho boyfriend. Shes on her own with this. He leaves.

She was a beautiful little thing. And she has surpassed all of her moms expectations. Her baby is having a baby. Lulu admits that she still feels pretty weird knowing that the pregnancy is going on in Maxies body and not hers. Laura tells her daughter that pregnancy is only for 9 months but motherhood lasts forever. Luke and Dante talk about investigating who sent Lulu that ice princess gift. Luke asks Dante if he might want to look into Scott Baldwin. Dante clarifies that he is correct that Luke means Lauras fiancé Scott Baldwin. Luke says yes.

He believes that sleeping with her did not screw it up. It just made it better. She turns away from him and fights back tears. He tells her he needs her in his life and knows she needs him too. So why not just stop fighting? She turns to kiss him and declares that he is the one she wants.
