Dante hopes that it takes Olivia and Sonny's mind off losing Connie. Dante gets up to retrieve the paper and sees his father splashed all over the front page. So much for that idea.

Derek/Julian flashes back to the night before, when he and Carlos were watching Sonny's shipment go up in flames. They are very pleased with themselves.

Carlos is at GH where he is eavesdropping on Patrick and Sabrina. Patrick apologizes to Sabrina for her having to sneak off because of Emma. She tells him not to worry about it and he tells her that Emma is feeling better. She's glad, and he's grateful for her missing her OB rotation to look after Emma. She brushes it off and says that's what families are for. Patrick is glad she feels that way but is curious about Carlos. Sabrina thinks Carlos is long gone, and that he won't be a problem anymore. She is unaware that he was listening and has slipped away.
At Metro Court, a half-naked Franco is talking to the painting that Heather gave him for his birthday. He still doesn't understand what's it's about. He also thinks that Heather showing up may have ruined his chance with Carly.

Carly calls for Ava to answer, and when she doesn't answer right away, Carly threatens to use the master key. Ava shoots Morgan a worried look.
Diane has found Franco's room and is startled when he answers it, still half-naked but looking very "healthy." She finds herself flustered, but manages to get a grip when Franco asks her why she's there. She tells him that she's there to discuss his finances. Ah, he was going to ask her about why his credit cards don't work. Diane informs him that the state has frozen all his assets. He calls them "sore losers" because his brilliant got all the charges dropped. Diane accepts the flattery, and toots her own horn. He high fives her, but she has more bad news.
