A producer comes by, interrupting them. He explains how the segment will go. He reveals to a surprised AJ that Tracy will be on the show, too, for a taste off between the two relishes by mistaking Elizabeth for Tracy.
Tracy asks what Elizabeth has to do with their plans. Nikolas tells her how much Elizabeth means to him, and that he's changed his mind because it would upset Elizabeth to hurt AJ. Tracy tells him that's the point. Nikolas says that Elizabeth knows why they are there, she asked him to back off, so he's backing off. Nikolas tries to convince her that there are other ways to market their relish. He tells her that he wants to crush AJ, too, but won't do it if it hurts Elizabeth.

Carly tells Sam how Sonny predicted that Morgan might be a troublemaker, since he has half of his DNA and half of Carly's. Carly says that he almost wishes that it was Michael on the run, because Michael is strong and can deal with problems, while Morgan is reckless. Carly doesn't think that Morgan is going to believe that Sam is "Jerome Around the World". Sam suggests waiting a little longer, when a text comes over asking what happened to her phone.
