He wonders if she's waiting for another drug shipment for her new boss.
Julian and Alexis are having a romantic, clandestine dinner in the art gallery. He's frustrated that she still doesn't want anyone to know that they're dating.

Back at Metro Court, Sonny covers by saying that Carly hates Ava, so Morgan wouldn't go to her. Olivia is flattered but still wonders what Morgan had to tell her. Sonny says that he blames him, and was just trying to get back at him. Olivia understands that Sonny doesn't want to hurt his kids, and was trying to protect him. He tells her that Morgan doesn't see it that way, butt can't say why. She thinks that Morgan will see sense soon enough, just like at the wedding.

At PCPD, Michael wants to join Anna in the in the interrogation room, but Anna says "Absolutely not!" As she enters the room, Michael cries "He's my father! I have a right to know why he was killed.

Carlos wants to know about Sabrina, so Anna tells him that she's in stable condition. The baby was born 15 weeks early, and is fighting for his life. Carlos breaks down, and Anna asks if he's okay.

Anna continues questioning Carlos, and why it concerns Sabrina. He tells her when Sabrina got pregnant that he didn't trust Dr. Drake to step up and do the right thing. He wanted to make sure that Sabrina and the baby were taken care of. The Jeromes don't pay well, but he couldn't ask them for a raise. He decided to make a little money on the side without telling them. Anna encourages him to go on before she takes a seat. Carlos continues with his story. He says that everyone knows that the Quartermaines are rich, so he decided to do a quick robbery. He thought the house would be empty, but AJ was there, and he couldn't let him see his face. He wouldn't be any good to Sabrina in jail. He was gonna shoot AJ, but Tracy came in and bashed in the back of the head. He says that he had choice but run. Leaving his gun behind, and AJ alive, finishes Anna. "Not for long," says Carlos. Anna says that AJ was shot with Julian's gun in Ava's apartment. She wonders how that happened. Michael is still watching, shaking his head.

She says that there are some things that he just can't tell her to protect her. Sonny swears that he would never do anything to hurt her, and she says she knows. She goes on to say that she knows that he's carrying a heavy burden, and can't tell her about it. She says that it's not worth losing him over.
Kiki apologizes to her mother for coming down on her earlier. Ava says if that's the only reason she came to visit then she wasted her time. Kiki says that there is another reason, she pulls out Ava's earring, and asks her if she was looking for it. Ava says that she must've lost it at the Quartermaines in the house.

Morgan tells him because she cheated on him.
Back at Kelly's, TJ and Molly are discussing Shawn's attitude towards his mom. TJ makes a joke about gangster being in her blood, because her mom works for Sonny, and her dad works for the Jeromes. She says that Ric told her that he quit, because he didn't want to be involved in anything illegal. She says that TJ's should be safe because she's just running the gallery. He says that the whole reason she came to town is because she found out that Shawn was working for Sonny.
Jordan and Shawn are still arguing on the docks. They have a difference of opinion about what to tell TJ. She fights back that if he tells the truth about her, she'll tell the truth about how his father really died. What truth is that, he asked. She implies that the "friendly fire" wasn't so friendly.
Back at the PCPD, Carly says that she's sure that Carlos has something on Ava. She can't worry about that now. Her son just lost his father, and is heartbroken. Franco encourages her to go and talk to him. He agrees to stay behind since he's the last person Michael wants to see. She kisses him and says thank you, before she leaves.
Carlos says that since he botched the B & E, he decided to go to the Jeromes to beg for a raise. He tells her how her let himself into Ava's penthouse. Anna is surprised to hear that he has a key, but lets him continue. He says that he called Ava, who was in New York, and she told him that Julian would be home soon. He tells her that AJ showed up there, drunk and rambling, looking for Ava. At first, he thought he was after him, but he was saying something about working for Ava and Julian. He tells her that AJ said that he knew him, which confuses Anna. Anna says that Carlos wore a mask, but he tells her that AJ recognized his voice, was to call the cops. Carlos knew he to stop him going to stop him. He knew where Julian's gun was, so he grabbed the gun, and shot AJ dead. And that's the truth, he tells Anna.
At Metro Court, Sonny swears to Olivia that she won't lose him, and seals it with a kiss. Olivia tells him that they will talk about what's bothering him whenever he's ready. He agrees and gives her a big, guilt-ridden hug.
In her penthouse, Ava tells Kiki that she was at the crypt to pay her respects to AJ. Kiki thinks it's cause she never cared about AJ before. Ava takes offence, until her daughter explains that she thought it she saw her and Morgan hugging. Ava says that she was upset, and took a walk to clear her, and ended by the crypt. Kiki assures her that there's nothing going on between her and Morgan. Ava asks if there are problems with Michael. Kiki said she was going through something comforting her. She tells Ava that Morgan loves, and ran after her. I guess, he just didn't think to look in the crypt. Ava has a sheepish look on her face.
At the gallery, Julian isn't very sympathetic. Julian's taunts roll off his back, but Morgan says that he should've known better. that she never stopped loving Silas Clay. Both Julian and Alexis pounce on him wanting to know if Silas. They keep after him, because of Sam, but he assures them it wasn't him. Julian wants to know who it was.

On the docks, Shawn and Jordan are talking about the same thing. He can't believe she's it against him. She says she doesn't want to bring it up, but he's giving her no choice.

He tells her to think about "getting out", before it's too late, and walk away.
TJ and Molly reminisce about when he first came to town. He was so messed up and angry at the time. He barely knew Shawn, and it was awhile before he understood. It hurt Shawn as much as it hurt him to think about his dad.
Back at the PCPD, Anna is playing Carlos's confession for Michael. Michael is distraught after hearing it, so Carly gives him a hug, Anna calls AJ's cold and senseless.
Olivia doesn't understand why he doesn't want to spend the night with her. Sonny says he's tired and just wants to go home and have a shower. Olivia says he looks like hell, and lets him off the hook. He kisses her and tells her that he couldn't get along without her. Olivia returns to work, while Sonny breathes a sigh of relief.
At the penthouse, Ava asks her daughter if the grilling is over. Kiki makes a phone call to Michael, and tells him that her mother doesn't know anything. Michael, forlornly, tells her that he has all the answers he needs.
Morgan refuses to tell Julian whom Ava cheated on him with. Morgan tells him not to worry about who's doing his Ava, and worry about what about Ava's doing to you. Julian wants to know what Morgan wants from him, but he says nothing, and walks away. Julian tells Alexis that he has to cut their evening short.

Julian is sitting at his desk, playing with a match. Jordan comes in to report that she made the pickup, and puts the briefcase on his desk. He asks if there were any problems, and she says that she took care of it. She tells him that this shows that she's on his side. She walks away. Julian leaves an urgent message for his errant sister, when she doesn't pick up.
Morgan is on the docks checking his messages. He hears Ava's plea, but ignores her. He has a bottle of booze with him.
Ava acts surprised when Kiki tells her of Carlos's confession. Kiki tells her mother that Carlos said AJ, was looking for her. Kiki tells her that AJ recognized his. Carlos shot him, before he could call the cops. She asks if he implicated anyone else. Kiki says that Carlos acted alone. Ava, her back towards Kiki, looks relieved. Ava receives a phone call from Julian, which she ignores. Kiki still wonders why Carlos would kill AJ. Ava says, callously, that it's a sad, sad waste but it's over, and now they can move on with their lives.
Michael and Carlos face each other, before he's taken away. All Anna can do is offer Michael some cold comfort. She tells him that at least they know (what they think is the truth).
Franco and Carly wonder what to do next They decide to dig up more proof before going to Anna with what they know. He says that when they learn what Ava is up to, they will bury her.
Alexis has found Sonny still at Metro Court. He tries to brush her off, but she doesn't let him. She tells him that his son told Julian about him and Ava. She tells him that Morgan was out to hurt Ava not him. Sonny wonders why she would say that, and Alexis rattles on that it wasn't Silas.
