First up, we have Michael reading an article, online about AJ. He's at Kelly's, where Kiki soon joins him. She gives him a kiss and asks how his visit with AJ went. Michael tells her that he kept telling AJ, that everything would be okay. She says something about "the power of positive thinking". He tells her that AJ doesn't even know if he killed Connie, so how can he convince 12 other people. Kiki says that the lawyer's job, and Michael says that Diane is the best, but he's not sure about the DA, Lazaro. Just then, Lucy enters and overhears the word D and A. She's campaigning for Scott Baldwin.
Sam has turned up at GH, where her mother has the test results we've all been waiting for. Alexis nervously rambles on, until Sam tells her to just open the envelope already. Alexis does, and to no one's surprise, it turns out that Sam and Lucas are a match. Sam just got a new sibling, whose also related to Carly. This means that the presumed dead Julian Jerome is her father.
Julian, uh, I mean, Derek is having breakfast with Carly. He's disappointed that she didn't spend the night with him. She tells him that she wants to take things slow. He thinks she's still hung up on that psycho Franco.
Speaking of Franco, he walks into his living room (half-dressed), and is surprised to see Heather's finished paintings. He's even more surprised, when she jumps up out of nowhere, and says "So give me your honest opinion. Do you like them?" He's scared to death.
In Derek/Julian's office, Carly denies her attraction to Franco, and says he's busy with his lawyer, Diane. Derek/Julian is glad, because he wants to get to know her. Suddenly, there's a call from Ava on his cell phone. He ignores it, which infuriates Ava.
At her penthouse, Ava doesn't like to be ignored by her brother. She leaves an angry message, and says "I just have one question...did you get the job done or not?" Morgan, half-dressed walks into the room, and overhears this.
This leads us to Sonny's warehouse, where a guard has been knocked out. Sonny and Shawn, guns drawn, are surveying the damage done to his latest shipment. When they enter the warehouse, they find it totally trashed. Sonny is not a happy camper.
Back at Kelly's, Michael, ever so politely, tries to get rid of the chatty Lucy. Kiki tells her that they're in the middle of something. Just then, Lucy notices the article Michael was reading. She goes on and on about Michael's two fathers, until she realizes her mistake. Michael tells her that he won't taking part in this year's election. Embarrassed by her faux paus, Lucy leaves them with some campaign buttons, and heads outside. Kiki wonders if Scott wins, if he would be helpful to AJ's case.
Scotty is there, half-heartedly, talking to a constituent. Lucy berates him for being grumpy, but Scotty is upset that Laura isn't there. He says the whole town loves Laura, and he loved her, too. Lucy tries to give him a pep talk, but he accuses her of just trying to keep busy because Kevin is ignoring her.
At GH, Alexis and Sam are taking in the fact, that the late Julian Jerome was her father. Alexis is sorry that Sam never got to meet her father. They were both hoping for closure, and Alexis tells her,that the Julian she remembered was a handsome, nice, sweet boy. The Julian Jerome she learned about was a very dangerous man.

Derek/Julian asks him to wait Before she leaves, Derek/Julian tells her he wants to see her again, and draws her into a passionate kiss. Carlos and his boss watch her leave, then Carlos says (with accent), "Nice catch." They both laugh.
Meanwhile, Morgan overhears Ava's message to Derek/Julian ending with "my darling". "What job?" he asks, startling Ava. She and Morgan start to argue about eavesdropping, but they are interrupted by a persistent knock on the door. Ava answers the door to find Diane, who notices a half-dressed Morgan, and quips "Oh Morgan, I see you still haven't found a shirt." She's there to hand Morgan the annulment papers, and Ava some more paper work for Franco's big show.
Franco is wondering , for the umpteenth time, how Heather managed to enter his suite unnoticed. She reminds him that she has her ways, and besides, "This time I came in disguise." as she pulls off her dark wig. She's there to bring him the paintings. "Ye ask and ye shall receive." she says. She explains the term "stan for him" to a confused Franco. She doesn't consider herself an obsessed fan, just a dedicated follower. She tells him that she'll do anything for him. Of course, that's when Carly starts pounding on the door. Heather gets upset to hear Carly, asking to see Franco.

In Derek/Julian's office, Carlos tells his boss that Sonny should be surveying the damage now.
Shawn and Sonny are surveying the damage done to the warehouse. Sonny is convinced that Julian Jerome is the culprit. Shawn asks Sonny where the guard is, and Sonny tells him that Max took him to the hospital. Shawn blames himself, but Sonny says it's supposed to be just a coffee shipment. Shawn suggests that Sonny leave, before the saboteurs come back. Just then, they hear cars pull up, so they draw their guns.

Inside Kelly's, Michael tells Kiki what he knows about Scotty, which isn't much. He doesn't know if Scotty would help or harm AJ's case. He does think that Scotty would be better than that Lazaro guy.
That Lazaro guy turns up with the cops at Sonny's warehouse. Sonny demands to see a warrant, but the DA tells him, that the police got a tip about the warehouse break-in. Lazaro tells Sonny that, because of the election, that he needs to look tough on crime. Sonny tells to convict him AJ Quartermaine, and he says he's working on that.
