Sonny explains that he does not want word to get out to his kids and many other people who may have expectations of him. Griffin admits he does not follow and asks Sonny why he'd keep his recover a secret at all. Sonny replies because of business strategies. Hearing that, Griffin can clearly tell that Sonny is not revealing everything about what he does in his business.

When Elizabeth goes outside in the hospital hallway, Nikolas finds her and needs to know what happened and if she's ok. He realizes with her house burned down, she has nowhere to go. He also knows she blames herself for what happened to Jake, what could have happened to Sam as well as her house burning down and the fact that her boys don't have stability. He protests that she did not cause any of this, reminding her that they have both done things they regret but it's over. He tells her she is more than welcome to stay at Wyndemere, reminding her that Spencer and his would love to see her and they could both help offer Jake some stability after what has happened..

Hearing that, Alexis asks her daughter how, all of a sudden, Julian was brought into this conversation. She affirms to Molly that Julian is not so much judging Jason as he has concerns for Sam and Danny's safety and how that could be related to whether they are around Jason. Molly tells her mom that is her whole point, reminding her if Julian continues to alienate Jason, he will not only upset Sam, he will be making her and Kristina angry at him. She reminds her mom they have all known Jason much longer than Jason and love him so maybe Alexis needs to discuss that with Julian. Alexis then concludes (in a somewhat joking and sarcastic manner) that maybe, now, if they can just get Sonny to accept Julian, they will all be one big happy family. Molly laughs.
Kristina finds Sonny and he is surprised why his daughter is still there and not in school. Kristina informs her dad that Sam got stuck in a basement that almost exploded by Jason saved her life.
