Michelle tells Eddie that she has nothing to do with Lance any longer. He tells her that he needs the papers that Lance had and tells her that his death was an accident. Eddie promises her that she will be okay if she gives him the evidence. Nikki is manages to survive with minor injuries, but Michael is rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. Nikki goes to the hospital with him and leaves Luke behind at the apartment. The Detective warns Luke to stay out of the investigation because Eddie is a dangerous man. Luke remembers Michelle telling him that the papers are at her old house and sneaks out the door while the cops finish gathering evidence.
At the hospital Dr. Evans informs Nikki that Michael is going to be okay. Gloria walks up and Nikki recognizes her from somewhere. The two of them start to talk and Gloria is shocked to hear that Lance is dead. Nikki then tells Gloria what happened at her apartment. When Gloria asks Nikki who did all of this, Nikki informs her that all she knows is that his name is Eddie. Eddie holds a gun to Michelle in the living room and tells her that she has no choice but to tell him where to find the evidence in the house. Michelle tells him that she would be a fool to do that because he will kill her for sure. Luke sneaks in and spies on them just as Eddie tells her that her time is up. Manny sneaks up behind Luke and hits him over the head. When he drags Luke in front of Michelle, she tells them that the safe is in the bedroom.
Gloria tells Nikki that she has a past with Eddie and that he is a crook. Nikki is horrified to hear that Lance was laundering all of this money and that Michelle has been brought into the mix. As Eddie orders Michelle to open the safe Gloria interrupts him with a phone call and tells him that she needs to see him immediately. Eddie tells her not to call back and hangs up on her. Gloria hears Michelle scream before he hangs up and informs Nikki that they are at Lance's house. Michelle opens the safe and grabs the papers….and a gun. When Eddie takes the evidence, she points the gun at him and tells him to drop his gun….now!
Eddie tells Michelle that there is no need to get hysterical. Michelle shoots one of Eddie's men and rushes into the bathroom as they fight it out. While Luke and Eddie exchange punches, Michelle runs into the bathroom. Manny starts to shoot the door down as Michelle searches for anything to use to defend herself. When he finally gets the door open, she throws a cup full of peroxide in his face. As he screams in pain she runs past Luke and Eddie to the stairs. Manny tackles her onto the sofa and she smashes a liquor bottle upside his head. Luke punches Eddie and he plunges down the stairs. As Luke and Michelle hug, the cops walk in and find Eddie and his crew knocked to the floor.
Luke and the detective tell Michelle that Eddie did not kill Maria. The detective informs them that the cops are pursuing the killer right now. The cops barge in the room and swarm Tania as she sorts her pill assortment that Sophia gave her. The DA calls William at his house and informs him that the arrest is being made. He reminds William that it is still not safe for him around here.
Michelle and Luke arrive at the hospital and Gloria is happy to see that they are okay. Michelle and Gloria hug for a moment and the she tells Gloria that Eddie is going to be put away for a long time. Luke thanks Gloria for telling the police where they were at and goes in to see Michael. Luke tells him that Michelle ended up shooting one of the men. Michael tells his best friend that she is definitely a keeper! Michelle breaks down in the waiting room and tells Nikki that everybody has their lives but her and that she can't force Luke into taking her to New York with him. Nikki drags Luke over to see her and tells them that she is tired of them not being able to work things out. Michelle tells him that she is tired of it too and that she is ending it for good. Michelle storms out of the waiting room and Luke chases after her. When he catches up to her she tells him that she doesn't want him to go to New York without her. He then tells her that he agrees. For the first time they say “I love you” to each other and kiss.
Luke, Michelle, Nikki and Michael stand in Maria's vacant office and Clive tells Luke to please consider not selling the company. Luke tells him that he doesn't want to be a part of something that killed his mother. Everyone leaves Luke alone inside to have a moment by himself. Luke takes the chance to say a final good-bye to his mother. Luke walks out of the office and suddenly we are taken back 4 weeks prior to when Maria found out that Dr. Woods was leaking information.
Michelle tells Luke that he has no reason to feel guilty because he could not have stopped the gunmen. Luke says that it isn't about that, it is about the fact that he doesn't really feel anything right now. He tells her that he did have a lot of good times with his mother, but right now he can only think about the lies and the hurt. Michelle gives him a hug to try and comfort him.
Luke tells Michelle that he is still planning on moving to New York for awhile. She tells him that he made quite a speech at the funeral. Michelle agrees with him that a lot of people at the funeral had motive to kill Maria, but that he was totally wrong to accuse Michael and Nikki. She asks him what he is going if they never find the killer. Luke looks at her and tells her that he doesn't know what he will do. Michelle tells Luke that she after everything calms down, the death of his mother is going to hit him. She reminds him that no matter what, she is always going to be there for him. Michelle hugs him once again before leaving. Michael stops by to check on him and tells him that he an Nikki are moving in together. Michael tells Luke that maybe he and Michelle should make the big move to New York together.
William interrupts Luke and Michael to say goodbye. Michael tells him that it is really convenient that he is leaving town right now. Michael leaves so that Luke and William can talk alone. William gives Luke a painting that their father did of Maria holding Luke when he was a baby. William tells him that maybe a few years from now he and Michelle will visit him for a holiday or something. He gives his brother his national phone number before leaving. Luke receives a call from Detective Hart and tells him that at the moment there are still no leads. Luke then receives a call from someone stating that he is a friend and that he saw who shot his mother. The caller informs him that he will tell him who did it…..for a price!
Luke goes to GATE and meets with the caller…..John Cotter. John tells him that all he has to do is sign over the entire company of Gianni to him and he will give him the information. Luke tells him that he is lying but John insists that he is not and gives him ten seconds to come to his senses. Luke punches John and the police rush over. They inform him that he is under arrest for extortion and withholding evidence. John is shocked to find out that Luke is wearing a wire. As John is rushed off to jail Luke and the Detective agree that they can't believe the name of the killer that John had written down. Michelle calls Luke and tells him that it had to be Eddie that killed Maria. As Luke tells her that he knows who the killer is, there is a knock at the door. Nikki goes to answer it right before the door is kicked in. The door hits Nikki and knocks her to the ground. Michelle screams as Michael is shot twice by Eddie's men. Michelle drops her phone and is dragged away as Nikki and Michael lay unconscious on the floor. Luke tells the detective what is going on and they rush out of the bar.
