Jordan says that Jim was here and tried to take Elizabeth and Jake hostage but now Franco is being held hostage by Jim. Scott saw the car on his way here. Jordan asks in which direction. Scott remembers the direction. Elizabeth wonders if he caught a glimpse of Franco. Scott thinks in control most definitely. Franco was driving the car and Jim was no where to be seen.
Franco pushes Jim on the floor of his studio. He thinks that Jim remembers his studio. The place that brought them together after all these year. Jim realizes that no one is around here. Franco wants him to check it out. His favorite painting survived without a scratch. Franco likes it here. For some reason, in his life it has been hard to feel safe but he feels safe here. Franco feels that they have a lot of work to do. Jim begs him not to hurt him again. Franco promises that he will not hurt uncle Jim. He used to really like it when he called him uncle Jim. Jim guesses they had some great times. He was a special kid. He really was. Jim guesses they got along a lot better than they do now. Jim doesnt think any of this should have happened if he had protected him from his guys. He got scared and let his men take Franco and Drew away. Franco tells him that this is enough. He knows that is not what happened. It is not why they are here. They are here to talk about what happened on the stairs when he pushed Drew down a flight of stairs. Franco finally remembers what happened. He pushed him down a flight of stairs because of Jim. They are going to talk about what happened before the stairs. Jim thinks it was ancient history. Franco wants to talk about it. When he is satisfied he will put Jim out of his misery. Franco is going to kill Jim. Franco wants to talk about what really went on in that house. Franco knows he is never at a loss for words. He has heard all his words. Jim knows that he pushed Drew. Franco did push him but he wants to know why. He wants to be told. Jim thinks it is because it is his DNA. He terrorized that child. Franco doesnt think that is true. He needed to keep Drew away from him. He asks if he remembers what that poor boys body looked like. Franco remembers better than he thinks. Drew is not so sure he does. He wouldnt be so fired up to recall the past. Jim thinks he was so small in that hospital bed. Franco remembers Betsy staying with Drew at the hospital and Jim taking Franco home for the night. Franco remembers going to bed that night and trying to disappear. He remembers that he couldnt. Jim walked in the room and has a toy for Franco. He was there so many times. When his mom was at work, when Betsy was sleeping. He would pat the bed sitting next to him. He would pat the bed two times. Always two times. One time it was daylight. He had to be quiet because no one could no. Not Betsy or Andy. Jim doesnt think it is true. Franco thinks the thing that troubles him the most is that he thought he deserved it. Jim thinks that Franco needed a strong hand. Franco doesnt think that they would be here if all he did was push Drew down a flight of stairs. He couldnt let him molest Drew like he did him. Franco thinks that is the truth. Jim thinks that this is some bizarre fantasy. Franco was just a little kid. He used him and fowled him. Now he is going to say it. He came to him. He needed him and was there for him. All he ever did was love him.
Joss thinks that it is cute that Nelle and Brad are friends. Joss doesnt think that Nelle will cause any trouble for Lucas and Brad.
Nelle got the coolest baby swing for the baby. Brad can change the speed and music from their phones. Nelle thinks the baby will hardly make a fuss. Brad reminds her that she got kicked all night long. Brad thinks that she is lucky to be able to get to hold her baby. He is terrified the birth mother is going to pull out. Nelle thinks that he needs to relax. She never sees Lucas. She wonders if he is avoiding him. Brad claims he is putting in as many hours as possible. Michael walks over when Brad is on the phone. He thinks that if Nelle is looking to make friends then she cannot do much worse than Brad.
Elizabeth tries to make sure that Scott is sure that he saw Franco and not Jim in the car. Scott saw them heading downtown. He wasnt going to send the police chasing him if he is the hostage taker. Elizabeth wants to know why Franco wouldnt go and get help. Scott has no idea why Franco does what he does. Scott thinks that he got mad seeing Jake and her getting manhandled by Jim. Scott is going to get Mac on this. He promises they will find him. Elizabeth wants him to hurry
Jim is sorry he hurt him. Franco wants to know how many children he abused. One day he showed up with a gift for Drew. He demands to know how many. Jim doesnt remember. Franco thinks he remembers everything. He thinks he remembers every little detail. He remembers their favorite cartoon, and cereal was, the paint in their bedroom. Franco thinks he remembers every gift he ever gave them that was so special. He will not leave here alive without a full confession. He gives him paper and a pen.
Carly doesnt know what caused the lights to go out or the noises. Carly thinks someone broke it. The same someone who left it in this room. She knows that someone did this to them. Carly doesnt think that this is the first time that she got a message from someone about Morgan.
Sonny checked the circuit box and it was not tampered with. Carly knows the lights were out. She got phone calls, then she had a call with a guy saying he was here. Then she heard an explosion. Jason and she went to the police. Dante traced the calls to a payphone a little under two hundred yards from where Morgan was. A homeless man said that it was used by a young guy a few times. Then a scarf was on her desk that was torn ad dirty and had old blood on it. It looked like the one that Morgan used to wear. Sonny wants to see the scarf. Carly had to leave her office and the scarf was gone. Now this photo is shattered. Sonny asks if she thinks Morgan is alive. Carly doesnt know but the common thread is their son. He can ask Jason. Sonny wants to know why she told Dante and Jason but not him.
Michael thinks that Brad gives a checkered past a bad name. Nelle thinks that people say much worse about her. He has been nothing but nice. She doesnt get that a lot. Michael is just giving her all the past. Nelle thinks that Brad has been nothing but cool to her. If Lucas didnt want him, then he wouldnt be with him. If he is good enough for Lucas than he is good enough for her.
Elizabeth hasnt heard a word from the sitter. She knows Franco wouldnt bring Jim anywhere near the children. She cannot think right now. She doesnt know why Franco didnt just go to the police. Elizabeth doesnt think he can shake the painting. Drew thinks if he is talking about the picture of him as a child then he has only seen a picture of it. Elizabeth guesses it got him to question everything. Drew asks if it is at her house. Elizabeth says he moved it. Drew wonders where
Franco asks if Jim is done. Jim shows him the confession. Franco cannot believe he did this to all these kids. Jim wonders what happens now. Franco thinks he has a spot. Jim assumes he wants him to go to prison. Franco assumes that what he did to him has expired. Franco promised he wouldnt hurt him. He will kill Jim quickly. Jim thinks this is wrong. He knows he failed him. Jim thinks that his other victims deserve to hear him admit to the other victims what he did. Franco needs to make sure he never hurts anyone else. Jim deserves to be punished but if he is killed he turns into a victim. Franco thinks there is only a solution for Franco. He thinks that Franco will lose everything. Jim knew he didnt have it in him.
Sonny understands why she tells Jason everything but why not tell him. Carly knows he was dealing with Mike. She thought she would have it handled by now. Sonny promises they will get through this together.
Nelle wonders where the waitress is. She is starving. Brad thanks Nelle for sticking up for him. Lucass family was hard to break into. He doesnt feel like he measures up. Nelle doesnt really care what people think of him anymore. Brad thinks highly of her and will think even higher when she becomes an awesome mom.
Michael should have just let Nelle be. Michael cares about Nelle, but it is not the same as loving someone. He should have figured that out earlier.
Scott is going to meat Mac at Kellys Elizabeth guesses that Drew had some place to be.
