Jake’s not happy that they were called. Jason asks to speak to Franco alone so the other two leave. Morgan doesn’t want his son there again.

Michael doesn’t want to referee their marriage but his sister thinks he’s the only one who can. Later, Nathan runs into Kristina and says he’s worried her mom might be holding something back.
Nelle is at Sonny’s. She confesses to the mobster that she drugged him, put him in bed, and let him think the worst. “There’s something wrong with you,” he says, shaking his head.

She won’t explain so Sonny does and then leaves to tell Carly. Michael asks if her confession was true or just what his father wanted to hear. Nelle explains she didn’t want to have sex with Sonny and she thought drugging him would be more ‘decent’. She was going to tell him but felt she should tell his father first. He’s outraged. She wants them to work it out. He yells at her to leave. Nelle hopes he can forgive her. Michael can’t fix her.
