Lucky and Liz discuss the kids and Lucky thinks they should never depend on their grandfather. Liz asks if Luke took off again and Lucky responds that it’s the least of it. He gets upset explaining how Luke left with Ethan, who Luke thinks is his son with Holly. Lucky is upset that Luke actually wants to be Ethan’s father, but insists he’s not jealous. Liz thinks he’s just disillusioned and Lucky doesn’t know why he should expect anything from Luke, but he is upset for Laura. Lucky thinks Luke finally found a way to punish him for being a cop. He’s tired of giving his father the benefit of the doubt and if Luke and Ethan break the law, he will bust them.


In Singapore, Ethan and Luke enter a heavily decorated, but empty building that was the center of Luke’s world once upon a time. Luke recalls some of his shady past with Ethan, as they have a drink, and recounts how he ended up in Singapore with Holly and without his family. A woman eavesdrops from the shadows as Luke reminisces about how he and Holly thought they were going to die there together. Ethan realizes that Luke thinks that place is where he was conceived and Tracy enters wondering where ‘she’ is. Two men come in and grab Tracy. She tells them they were supposed to grab Holly, not her! Luke pleads with Tracy to give the men her jewelry, but she refuses. Tracy runs free and Luke and Ethan fight with the bad guys. They succeed in besting them and Tracy asks where Holly is and wants to wait for her.


Claudia and Sonny meet up in the lobby at GH and he tells her they should throw all the threats he’s made against her out the window because she’s having his child and no matter what he feels, he could never harm her. However, he wants her to be honest with him and asks her pointblank if she had anything to do with Michael’s shooting. Claudia assures him she never would have put Michael in a coma, but Sonny points out it was an unintentional accident, aimed at him. Claudia defends herself and vows she did not do this. Claudia tells him if she was responsible for what happened to Michael, she wouldn’t go through the pregnancy because she couldn’t live with what she had done. Sonny chooses to believe her for the sake of the baby. Claudia gets emotional and leaves to take care of some things.

As Jason sits by Michael’s bedside, Monica comes in and they discuss his condition. Monica tells Jason she doesn’t think Michael will wake up. Carly walks in and angrily wonders what Monica is doing. Monica apologizes to Carly and leaves. Jason tries to calm Carly down and Jax walks in wondering what’s going on. Carly says the only thing that matters is focusing their positive energies toward Michael. She says there is no room for negativity, but Jax reminds her she has a son at home and a baby on the way and she should focus some of her energy on them. Jason leaves to find Monica.

Jason finds his mother in the hall and apologizes. Monica understands what Carly is going through and recalls how she acted during Jason’s accident, but she doesn’t think Carly will get the miracle she did. She tells Jason if she is right, he and Carly will need each other.


Robin attends a group therapy meeting and wonders how she can make up for not being there for her daughter. The other mothers share their stories as Robin shares more of hers. Robin admits she is disappointed in herself for needing the medication, but vows she won’t stop taking it without the doctor's permission.

After Claudia leaves, Jason happens upon Sonny, who explains that he’s setting his wife up. Sonny won’t run away from the baby she’s carrying, but he needs proof against Claudia. He knows her weakness is that she wants to be his partner and he is playing right into it. He assures Jason she is right where he wants her with her guard down.


Claudia goes home and finds Ric waiting for her. He mocks her sympathy for Michael and she assures him everything is fine between her and Sonny and there’s nothing he can do about it. Ric shows her his court order for a paternity test and tells her the minute she has the baby, he will have the test done. Claudia thinks if it is his, it will give Sonny the chance he’s looking for to kill him. Ric thinks that will give him the opportunity to tell Sonny all her dirty little secrets. Claudia wants to know what he wants and Ric spits out, “My kid.” Ric warns her no one will deny him his rights as the father of this child, as Jason walks in the room.


Patrick comes in Michael’s room and tells Carly and Jax the operation went as planned, but there should be some progress by now. Carly thinks Michael will wake up when he’s ready.

Patrick and Monica discuss Michael and she reassures him it’s not his fault. This case hit him hard and Monica explains that it’s because he’s a father now, but he has to know he can’t save everybody; he can only do the best he can.


Patrick goes home, holds his daughter and talks about his feelings regarding Michael’s surgery. He also says he misses Robin, but she’s getting better and will be back soon.

Jax meets with Olivia and tells her to cancel the work on Michael’s room.


Carly tells Michael she will never give up on him and Sonny comes in the room. She updates him on what Patrick said and Sonny is disappointed, but Carly thinks Patrick is wrong.
