Patrick watches Robin and the strange man outside her hotel room. The man says he'd like to see Robin again! Patrick is upset and walks away as Robin calls the guy 'sweet'. He doesn't hear the man wish Robin the best in her life back home and leaves. Robin goes inside alone but still feels bad. She finally leaves the room – and the things she bought – behind!

At Sonny's Ric says Claudia should hear what he has to say, too! Frustrated at the two of them, Sonny demands to know what is going on as Claudia argues with Ric not to rock the boat. Ric won't back down and tells Sonny he is loyal and useful. He says he is the only one left who knows all of the Zacchara secrets and asks if he is in or out of Sonny's organization. He asks Claudia's opinion, too, making her even more nervous. She says she despises him! In the next breath she says Ric isn't the least bit loyal and Sonny agrees with her. Then, Claudia says Ric can be used to their advantage! Ric is pleased and Sonny is stunned. He agrees to think about Ric's proposition. Ric leaves. Sonny is drinking alone when Claudia comes to him. He asks what is going on between Claudia and Ric. Claudia dances around his question, saying she is using Ric to protect Sonny. She swears she is on Sonny's side; he isn't sure what to believe. Claudia unbuttons a few of his buttons and smiles at him.


Carly asks Jax what he is watching; he says it is a wedding video for them to watch! They talk about how lucky they are. He says he never stopped loving her; she thanks him for giving her a second chance. They agree to a clean slate and Jax kisses her hand. Carly gets dressed and leaves. Jax finishes watching Jerry's video; Jerry tells him everything about Claudia and apologizes for his part in the plan. Jerry begs Jax not to beat himself up about Michael's condition and then asks him to fix things. Later that night Carly awakes to find Jax at the window. He says he is okay and holds her, swearing that nothing will hurt them again. She goes back to sleep.


Sam is held up outside the room until Winifred comes by and says she has been looking for her. Winfred sends Sam on her way and then gives the other agent his marching orders. When they are gone, Sam sneaks back into the hall and into the locked room! She gets into the computer and then starts going through files. She finds the flash drive and opens those files, then replaces the flash drive with another device! She replaces the files and then takes the flash drive and leaves.

Over dinner Spinelli rambles about not liking Maxie's job. Lulu wonders what is going on but Maxie won't let her or Spinelli say much. Johnny returns and Lulu asks if he is back in the mob! Maxie tries to get rid of them but they fight in the middle of the living room about Sonny's party and Johnny's on-going mob connections. Johnny insists he was only protecting his sister but Lulu storms out. Maxie and Spinelli order Johnny to go after Lulu and Spinelli says he knows about the 'illicit passion' that Maxie and Johnny share! Johnny can't believe Maxie told Spinelli but then the Feds arrive and demand that Spinelli turn himself in! After they drag him out Maxie worries that she won't be able to save Spinelli. Johnny says Spinelli will be okay. They talk about that night in the garage and Maxie says she can't face losing Spinelli; she wants Johnny to tell Lulu about that night but he won't.


Patrick returns home. Liz is with Emma and Patrick tells her that Robin was with another man! Elizabeth tries to calm him down, reminding him that affairs are a common thing with post-partum patients. He lashes out at her but then apologizes. Liz says she knows just how he feels. Patrick isn't sure what to do next. He holds Emma. He swears her to secrecy! Liz leaves and Patrick talks to Emma about his love for Robin. He wonders what Robin wants and if he can give whatever it is to her; he promises that Emma won't be hurt by them. Robin walks in the door and starts folding clothes. Both are upset and finally Patrick says he knows where she was. She says it was good of him to give her space so she could come home alone. "I just wanted to get away from everything that was making me feel like a failure," she says. She mentions Ruth and the way she made up a new life but she doesn't tell him about the man. Patrick questions her some more but Robin doesn't say anything else. She admits that she has a problem and asks him for help.


Rayner demands that Jason get the goods on Sonny or he'll be arrested – and so will Spinelli! Jason insists he did all he could and points out that he gave the Feds Anthony! Rayner says that isn't enough. Diane arrives and starts defending Jason but then some agents drag Spinelli in. Rayner tries to pit Jason and Spinelli against one another; Spinelli is about to throw himself on Rayner's mercy when Diane steps in and demands to see the evidence Rayner has right away. Another agent comes in and says they need to talk about the evidence. Rayner demands to know what is going on; the agent reports that all of their evidence is gone! Rayner accuses Spinelli of destroying the evidence and says it doesn't matter because of the flash drive; the agent says the flash drive is gone, too, and Rayner is the last one who accessed the room! Rayner sends the man away and chuckles; Diane demands that Jason and Spinelli be released and the charges dropped. Rayner sends them away but warns them that he isn't going away!
