When Tracy is in her hospital bed, she calls Alice to ask her to please send the car. She affirms that although she does not have Dr. Monica's permission to leave the hospital, it is her right to do so. Right then, Monica enters and asks her sister in law if she plans to go somewhere. Tracy adamantly tells her she does not want to wait for any MRI results or anything and plans to leave now whether the doctors want her to do so or not. Dr. Griffin Munro and Dr. Mayes accompanies Monica. Tracy sarcastically and snarkily reminds them she is the patient who makes the decisions and asks if they intend to invite the janitor. Right then, Dr. Mayes wastes no time informing Tracy they have discovered a tumor. They do not know for certain if it's cancer but that is a possibility. He leaves Tracy alone with Monica and Griffin. Monica asks her if she needs anything. Tracy does not want to admit to any needs except to get out of there.
Meanwhile, Nikolas calls Sam to find out the progress of her investigation of his new wife, while Sam sits at the Metro Court ready to meet with Baxter, the contact who will hopefully give them the information they are seeking. Right then, Hayden joins Nikolas and seems as though she suspects nothing. When the Baxter arrives and meets with Sam at the table, she has him believing that she is looking to invest money from a divorce on property and other ventures. Baxter asks her how or from where she sought him out and just who recommended him to her. He tells her all about the possible monetary rewards when Sam shows him a picture of the contact who recommended him to her. It's a picture of Hayden. Baxter looks at it silently and stunned knowing he has to deny ever having met this women. Yet Sam tells him that is very odd, since her friend, Rachel informed Sam that she ran into this man in Vegas. In response to that, Baxter admits to Sam it's true he spent some vacation time in Vegas but he's certain he'd have remembered such a beautiful woman. She asks if perhaps he partied too much to remember. Right then, Baxter now knows he has to abruptly excuse himself and go off to make a call she cannot hear or know about.
With Nikolas, Hayden remarks that she missed him while he was in Philadelphia with Spencer. She informs him that she was with Tracy Quartermaine at The Floating Rib when Tracy suddenly collapsed having a seizure and had to go to the hospital. Hearing that, Nikolas asks her why she is now suddenly so close to Tracy Quartermaine. Hayden replies to her husband that she finds Tracy very annoying and she only deals with her as much as she is required to in their business contact with ELQ. Hayden also reflects to Nikolas that when she saw Tracy have her seizure, it reminded her (Hayden) of when she watched her father have a heart attack. She went with him to the hospital, as a child and he promised never to leave his little girl. She admits she believed him. Right then, she tells him she has a surprise for him. It's a work of art, she tells him. She gives him the book, The Great Gatsby. He tells her he really appreciates not only the first edition of a classic but the thought. She informs him she wrote an inscription yet she seems secretive as she tells him she has to get going and get back to ELQ. She expresses that she knows Elizabeth does not want her there and he asks if her reason for leaving is to merely find excuses not to run into Elizabeth.

Hearing that, Sonny reflects that now it appears he's losing her all over again. She clarifies she is not leaving him. What would be the point? She'd move back to her house. They could both move on with other people. But what would be the point? They'd both just end up breaking their hearts all over again. She admits to him she knows she'd walk on broken glass to be with him. He admits he knows they have both lied whenever they thought they could be without each other. He tells her he needs her and he always will. She asks, however, what they are going to do the next time a serious consequence occurs that could endanger them or their kids. What will they do then? He tells her that given the business he has to do, he has to keep her safe. He reminds her if he disappeared tomorrow, there would be many more people who want to take his place. They both know that Port Charles is a war zone. He asks her if she knows that, why is she questioning their lives. She tells him that she knows how he makes danger look sexy.

Yet she reflects that when she saw Kiki alone on the pier bleeding, she wondered if there could have been some way to stop it. Hearing that, Sonny tells her they have Ava to thank for that. She agrees that Ava is a despicable person who does not care about her kids. That's a given. Yet aren't they better than that? Is the only way they can settle their disputes with guns?
Monica goes to talk to Tracy in her room. Tracy argues she is not a child, to which Monica tells her she has to stop acting like one and needs to realize she needs help.

They happily kiss and declare that they want to get back together.
