At GH, Lucas shows up and plants a big kiss on Brad. They apparently spent the night together.
A happy Felix is at the Nurse's Station, talking to a computer that's not working. He's not going to let it spoil his mood. He's happy he has a date. Silas comes up to the station, and asks him to dial it down. He's in a mood, so Felix makes a bad joke about taking some anti-depressants to get happy.
At Kelly's, Sam is meeting with the retired pharmacist, to ask him questions about the prescription, and if he recognizes Ava Jerome.
At Ava's penthouse, she's drinking, and offers one to Morgan. He says it's too early in the day for him. He's feeling guilty for ratting out Duke to Julian.
It's a foggy night, when Julian meets with Duke, on the pier. He tells Duke that he knows about him working with Sonny to bring him down. As he holds a gun on Duke, he tells him that it's not going to work out that way.
Mac shows up at The Floating Rib, after a workout with Kevin. It's all part of Kevin's plan to help save his marriage. Felicia makes a remark that Kevin cuts a trim figure.

Over at Metro Court, Scotty thinks that Lucy has come to be with him. She tells him that she's there to ask why he would sic the cops on his own son.

Sam wants to know if he knew Ava, and he says that he remembers her.
At Ava's penthouse, Morgan is feeling remorseful about the things that he's done. He's worried about Carly, and how he treated her, and he's still upset over shooting Max. He's also upset about lying to his father about where he is. Ava tells him that Julian isn't out to commit cold-blooded murder. He's doing it to protect himself, and his family. "It's all a matter of perspective." says she. She puts a twisted spin on things, saying that to be successful "in this business", you have to be willing to do things. Morgan draws the line at murder. Ava tells him sternly that Julian is protecting his family. "Same as you." she tells him. Morgan disagrees, and says that he needs to tell her something.
At the pier, Julian is about to blow Duke away, when Shawn comes up and points a gun at his head. "I wouldn't do that if I were you." Duke chides him for thinking that he would show up alone. "You made a terrible mistake." he tells Julian. Sonny shows up, and says it may be his last.

Things aren't going too well for Sam either. Nakamura admits seeing Ava, and remembers her, because of her looks.

Lucas didn't know they had an Asian quarter, and Brad tells him it's where all the hipsters live now. Lucas asks Brad if he wishes he hadn't look for his real parents.

At Kelly's, Nathan West goes over what Nakamura has told him about Silas. Nathan goes to show him a picture, but as it happens, Silas comes through the door, and Nakamura identifies him. Sam looks helpless, as Silas joins them. He thanks him for coming, but gets upset when he hears that Nakamura says it was Dr. Clay who asked him to fill out the prescription for liquid anti-depressants. Nathan and Sam argue about whether or not Nakamura can remember things clearly. Nakamura says that he can, cause it was an unusual request.

She tells him that it happened when Kevin and Lucy were separated. She tells him it was just once, and that Lucy realized her mistake. She really wants to work on her marriage.
Scotty tries to get Lucy to leave. He says it's not fair, because she's being so supportive. She asks him what he wants, and he tells her that he wants her. He goes on to say that she already told it's not going to work out. She says that they're friends, but he tells her "It just doesn't cut it anymore." He tells her that she doesn't want that because she put it in the past. Lucy starts to reveal her true feelings, but can't get the words out. Lucy says that she thinks about him all the time, and even dreams about him. She tries to leave, but Scott starts kissing her, and they start undressing.
