Carly walks inside and demands to know what is going on. Sonny informs his wife that he was able to see their son doing this on security camera. Hearing that, Carly is shocked and demands Morgan tells her how he can do that to Kiki. He angrily protests that it was an accident and his parents are over-reacting. Again, they start in on him about how he must not be taking his pills. He is acting manic, they tell him, and that is unacceptable. He continues to protest that he is taking his medication. If they don't believe him, they can go and count the pills, have his blood tested or do whatever they feel is necessary but it does not matter because whatever he does, they do not trust him.

After Paul finds out that Anna is working with Mac to spy upon him and find out information about his daughter, Susan, she reveals she knows that hes hiding Carlos River and falsifying his death after he's killed Sloane. Hearing that, Paul confirms she is correct. He has killed Sloane and he would do it again. He also confirms to Anna that he helped Carlos get away after he murdered Duke. She demands to know why he did that. He replies she admitted to shooting Carlos four times and supposedly killing him. She realizes the only witness to her admitting that was Sloane who is now dead. She realizes that Paul has motives that might involve Sonny vs. Julian. She then concludes that he must be covering for Carlos because Carlos did his dirty work by killing Duke for him. She concludes it must have been Paul that attempted to kill Sonny as well. He must have wanted him out of the way. However, she wonders what Sloane would have to do with that to which he admits it had nothing to do with his issue with Sonny or Duke. Paul admits to Anna that years ago, he almost lost his daughter Susan when she almost died. At that point, he let her do whatever she wanted. As a result, his daughter had no boundaries nor regard for his or her step-mother's rules. She ran off and he cut her off financially. She later cut off all ties to him although he never stopped loving her. Hearing that, Anna asks him what that has to do with Kyle Sloane. Paul replies that Kyle Sloane is responsible for ruining Paul's daughter's life. He explains to Anna that Sloane started seeing Susan and he knew how to intimidate and abuse her. Eventually, Susan was so distanced form her father, she would not tell him or her mom, Jenny. He explains to Anna that as soon as Susan tried to leave Sloane, he found her, beat her and savagely raped her. He talks about all he's seen and known as DA in rape cases yet he did not know what happened to his own daughter until he was too late. Hearing that, Anna sounds sensitive and protests she did not know. He explains that he and Jenny managed to get their daughter to the ER but it was too late to bring Sloane to justice. He wanted to find Sloane and either put him in prison or kill him with his bare hands. But he could not find him. The strangest thing happened, Paul tells her. When he returns to Port Charles, he ran into his old friend Janet Lomax who informed Paul she was having trouble with her ex police commissioner who happened to be Kyle Sloane. He explains to Anna that he remembered she was with him the night when Michael Corinthos informed them that Carlos probably shot Sonny. He informs her that he took a call from Sloane who did not know who he was talking to. He met with Paul to give him information about Carlos yet it appeared Sloane did not even recognize Paul when they met in person. Sloane must not have valued Paul's daughter enough to remember Paul was her father. When he met the creep on the docs and Sloane informed him that he and Carlos would set Anna up to believe she killed Carlos, Sloane was ready to give Paul all the evidence he needed to convict her. At that point, Paul concluded he needed to kill two birds with one stone so he shot Sloane to death, he informs her. And his only regret was that somebody saw him doing it.

After Morgan has left his parents alone in the house to talk, Carly is very worried about what will happen if their son refuses to take his meds.

They have to let him make his own decisions. However, Sonny admits that they did both hope and believe that Morgan would have known when he had his manic episode with Kiki in the cabin that he realized he hit rock bottom. However, that may not be the case. He may need to experience more consequences.
