The cat and mouse game between Jerry and Sam continue out on the freighter. He laments about how much he did truly enjoy her mother, but he's too much like her daughter to live a straight and narrow life. When he's looking out of a porthole, Sam is able to stretch her body far enough to send a distress signal from a ship-to-shore microphone. Soon, the coast guard is outside and Jerry slaps Sam in the face.


He stashes her away and then invites the cost guard guy onboard. He explains away the distress call by saying that he and his girlfriend were messing around and accidentally sent the call. He apologizes for any inconvenience and the guard lets it go for this time.


Carly is stunned to open her door and find Jax offering her divorce papers. She points out that just last night he was ready to give them another chance! Jax says that was before he realized that she was hiding Sonny from him. Carly says that she can explain everything, but Jax says that he's done with her and she shouldn't bother trying to explain because she's addicted to Sonny.


Sonny painfully bends down next to Karpov's lifeless body to retrieve several bullet casings and then leaves the scene. From her hiding place, Olivia fumbles for her phone to dial 911, but then hangs up.


At GH, Patrick tells Anna that as long as Robin's blood won't clot, her chances of survival are slim. Anna tells him to stop thinking like a doctor and start acting like a father! He goes back to Robin's bedside and Robin weakly asks how Emma is. Patrick jokes about his fathering skills as Anna looks on. She can sense that Robin is giving up, so she tells Patrick that Robin needs to see her baby. After Patrick is gone, Anna speaks to Robin sharply and tells her how much her daughter needs her. When Patrick returns with Emma, Anna leaves them alone. Robin gently holds the baby and promises Patrick that she's going to recover somehow.

Olivia is very shaken as she comes into GH to check on Connie. Liz asks if she's okay, and Olivia asks her how anyone could be with a guy who could kill another human being like the drop of a hat?


Carly isn't at all surprised when Sonny bursts through her door saying that the cops will be looking for him and he needs an alibi. Through tears, she tells him that he ruined her life tonight and maybe she should just ruin his. Sonny asks for a glass of water and something to eat so that he's not weak when the cops show up. Carly isn't in the mood to dole out snacks and says that she's tired of covering for him. She can't believe that she's the one who brought him the gun and says it's proof of how sick her thinking is. Still, it's only a matter of moments before she appears with a glass of water and a pop tart for him.


Olivia goes back to the waterfront and sees that the cops have arrived and are investigating the scene. Mac spots her and asks if she saw anything out here tonight.

Before long, Detective Harper shows up at Carly's house and asks Sonny where he was about an hour ago. Sonny refuses to talk, so he asks Mrs. Jax for her statement. She won't talk either. Then he places Sonny under arrest and reads him his rights.

Jason and Spinelli are brainstorming scenarios about 'who's zooming who?' when it comes to Sam and Jerry. As they talk, Spinelli's computer beeps and he learns that a man named James Brosnan was just investigated by the coast guard on a freighter. That's all they needed to hear.


Out in California, Lucky, Nik and Lulu show up at the cabin door just as Luke and Laura are starting their second kiss. Laura rushes to the door and greets her three children. After lots of hugs and kisses, she offers them a deal. She promises to let them know if she feels herself relapsing and in return, she implores them to be honest with her from now on. Then, Nik calls for a chopper.


Back at the hotel, Tracy gets a call reporting that Luke and Laura were found by their children and are safe. Scott tells her that it looks like they lost and that Luke and Laura will go off into the sunset. "Don't count on it," Tracy scoffs. She says that she is the perfect woman for Luke now.


Soon, Tracy's eyes light up at the sight of the Spencer clan coming through the door of the hotel. She guardedly tells them that she's glad they are all safe, and Luke stands next to her. Nik and Lulu awkwardly make small talk and Laura tells them not to handle her with kid gloves. She says she is tired, but she won't rest until she talks to Luke's new wife.


Everyone walks away and lets Laura talk with Tracy without interference. First Laura thanks Tracy for her kindness to Lulu, and then she apologizes for how painful it must've been during the staged wedding a couple years ago. She calls Tracy generous, and Tracy cracks that she doesn't do generous. She says that she doesn't share her husband either and that she hears Scott Baldwin is available.
