It looks like Sonny has taken over Connie's old office at Metro Court. He's on
the phone, talking to Shawn, when Morgan shows up. He tells Sonny that he
grabbed the last box from the movers on his way up. Sonny asks if there's any
word on Carly. He tells Sonny that the cops can't find her, and now they can't
even find Franco. Sonny is exasperated, and wonders how that happened. Morgan
tells him that Franco had help from his ex-wife.
At the police station, the guard tells Kiki to cheer up, because she has another visitor. Kiki is less than thrilled to see Ava, slithering through the door.
Sam meets with Alexis, and updates her on Silas's situation. Sam recalls that
Julian agreed to find out if his sister had anything to do with Nina's death.
They both question the sincerity of Julian's offer to help prove Silas's
Julian is at the cemetery with Lucas. He's trying to get to know his son. He asks Lucas about his life, especially if he has a girlfriend. Lucas says that he doesn't, but Julian doesn't believe him. When Julian keeps pushing, Lucas announces that he's gay. Julian is stunned, and doesn't know what to say. "What's the problem, Dad?" he says, "I'm not the kind of son you always wanted?"
At Metro Court, someone knocks on Scotty's door and says "Room service". Scotty complains that he didn't order any room service, but when he opens the door, he finds it's not hotel staff, but Franco. Scotty is less than thrilled to see him.

Ava says that she heard about the arrest, and had to come and see her. Ava
notices that she's been crying, but Kiki isn't interested in admitting that to
her. Kiki says that she's tired, and in custody, and Ava is there. One of these
things has to change, she says. Guess which? Ava ignores her, and asks if Franco
talked her into helping him. Still bruised from Michael earlier, she gets upset
and says no. she wanted to help him.
Morgan can't believe that he's standing inside of Julian's old office again. He asks Sonny when he took it over. Sonny tells him that he and Olivia got together, and booted Julian out. Morgan wonders why he moved in, and Sonny tells him that Michael's running the restaurant, and he wanted a place to keep the business away from him. He promised Carly that he'd do that. Morgan asks what about him, and Sonny reminds him that neither he nor Carly wanted him near the business either. Unfortunately, that got "shot to hell" when he went to work for Julian.
Julian is trying to digest what Lucas just told him. Lucas isn't making it easy on him. He keeps pushing Julian on how he feels about his son now.

At the police station, Sam is surprised when Alexis encourages her to give Julian a chance. Sam wonders what happened at dinner the other night. Alexis avoids the subject, and talks about Silas. She tells Sam that Silas has been held for 48 hours, and should be let go, unless they find new evidence. Detective West comes down the stairs, and tells her that he has.
Franco pushes his way into Scotty's, in spite of Scotty's efforts to keep him out. He tells him that he can't help him, or be seen with him. He goes to call the police, but Franco begs him not, too.

The one that left everything to Silas.
Things aren't going well between Julian and Lucas. He questions whether or not Lucas is really gay. Lucas gets defensive, and says yes he's gay. He likes dudes and sleeps with dudes. "Macramé?" Julian says as a lame joke. Lucas tells him that he came out of the closet in high school. He says that he tried to deny it, but it's not temporary. He's gay. Julian suggests that maybe he didn't have a strong male presence in his life. He says that maybe if he had, things would've turned out different. "Different?" asks Lucas. "Normal." says Julian.

Scotty asks him why he didn't call him, and Franco says that Scotty wanted nothing to do with him They argue about whether or not Franco should've reported her.

He points at Julian, and says "You are not my father.", before he walks away.
Ava is surprised that Michael made Kiki cry. Kiki says that he believes that Franco is guilty, and nothing else can change his mind. Ava says that those Corinthos boys are stubborn. Once they may up their minds, there's no changing them, especially with us Jerome girls. Kiki can't believe that Ava is making this about herself. Ava denies it. She says that she was just trying to be sympathetic or empathetic. Kiki doesn't believe her, and says that her sympathy is like ice cream and antifreeze.

Ava says that Morgan didn't break up with her, his father made him do it.
At the new office, Sonny questions Morgan about Ava. Morgan tells him that he broke up with Ava. Morgan tells him that he texted her, and she answered, but he's not proud of it. Sonny says that's good, but for Morgan it's not. He tells Sonny that Ava came to the house, and he sent her away. Morgan gets upset, and tells Sonny that something fun turned serious. Sonny says that he gets, but Morgan isn't sure that he does. He tells Sonny that Ava became everything to him.

He doesn't know who sent it to him. Alexis says that most spouses name their husband s beneficiaries. Detective west fires back that most don't have pregnant mistresses. Alexis says that he still doesn't have enough evidence to hold Silas. He says that the millions he stood to inherit does. Alexis says it's not his call to make, it's the DA's and asks where Scotty Baldwin is?
In his hotel room, Scotty wonders how a dead woman could've kidnapped Carly.
Franco tells him that the first thing he did when he escaped, was to check the
grave where he thought he left Heather. Franco doesn't know how Heather
survived. "Next time, wooden stake." he says. Scotty says so his proof is a hole
in the ground? Franco says a note saying "You're gonna pay for this." is. Scotty
asks for the note, but Franco says that he doesn't have it. He thinks that he
dropped it when the cops came. Scott tells him to had over the phone and he'll
straighten this out. Franco gets frantic and says that Scotty is the only one
who can help him. Franco says the note tells him that he's going to pay. Heather
wants to revenge, and she got it by taking Carly. He begs Scotty to help him

Kiki remains stubborn, and says that she doesn't want her help.
In Sonny's new office, Morgan and Sonny talk about what it was like when Sonny lost Connie. Morgan says it's not the same thing because Ava's still alive. He doesn't know what he's going to do without her, and can't imagine how Sonny feels with AJ walking around. Sonny tells Morgan that he never wants him to feel that kind of hate. The only reason that AJ is still around is because of Michael.
