Lucky warns Luke it will look bad for Ethan if he decides to bolt. As they discuss it, Maya walks in and then Lucky leaves to get back to work. Maya asks Luke for his take on Edward. Luke warns her Edward always expects something in return – especially from family. She wants to know if she can trust him and Luke declares, "Hell no!"


Nikolas finds Elizabeth in the oncology wing at the hospital and after some polite chit chat, they hear loud music coming from the hall. They exit the room to find Shirley teaching Patrick how to dance. Patrick gets back to work, as Elizabeth and Nikolas help Shirley back to the room. Matt bursts in with a feather boa for Shirley, but she puts it on him and asks if he's ready for another lesson.


Morgan listens as Jax and Claire argue about the case, as well as Dante, who is out looking for Michael. Carly walks in and the women bicker. Claire storms out and Jax and Carly get into it. Jax tells her he protected Michael on the island because he will always be grateful to him for saving her and Josslyn and then leaves.


Patrick goes to Jake's where Claire is already sitting at the bar. He gets a text saying Robin won't be meeting him. Claire says life is full of disappointments, which can lead to pushing too hard to get what you want and compromising yourself. He tells her Robin is his wife and she assumes she's not his favorite person, considering what happened in court. He says he would actually like to thank her and buys the next round. They discuss how dangerous Sonny is and Patrick thinks she has an advantage because she doesn't have any emotional ties to him so she can go after him any way she wants. He hopes she does whatever she can to put him in jail where he belongs and assures her she is doing the right thing.


Jax meets Skye at the Metro Court and talks to her about the trial. He wonders, even if he gets his way and Sonny goes to trial, will it be worth it? He ponders if he should put a stop to the whole thing, but she suggests he stay the course. He says if this blows up in his face, his marriage is more over than it is now. She asks what's more important to him: nailing Sonny or keeping his family?


At Michael's new location, Morgan calls his brother to give him the heads up about Dante, but Dante is already there. Michael assures his little brother that Dante will never get to him and hangs up. Michael tells Dante he should leave before Max and Milo show up, but Dante lets him know they've been taken care of, as the brothers sit in jail. Dante grills Michael about seeing Sonny kill Claudia, but Michael spits out that he was the one who killed his stepmother. Dante thinks he's just trying to protect Sonny so Michael shows him his bloody shirt. Dante isn't swayed, even as Michael explains what really happened.


On the plane back to Port Charles, Dante tells Michael if his shirt comes back from forensics and it doesn't back his confession, he will have to take him to the prosecutor. Michael wonders what happens when he is proven right. Dante doesn't know what he'll do.


Jason runs into Johnny and Olivia looking at the penthouse that's for sale across the hall from him. Jason makes it clear Johnny will never live there, but Johnny gets in a few digs about Sonny going to jail before they leave. Jason goes back to his place and Maxie comes in talking home improvement ideas, but Jason doesn't want to discuss it. She thinks Spinelli deserves all the upgrades, but Jason tells her all he needs is his laptop and her. She thinks that's the problem. She explains how almost dying made her realize she wants more than what Spinelli can give her. She says she needs excitement and danger, but she's doing the decorating as a distraction in order to keep them together because she knows Spinelli is good for her. Sam comes over after Spinelli and Maxie have left and asks Jason if it would have been so easy to leave her to go to jail for Sonny. He apologizes if he made her think she didn't matter to him, because she does and he needs her. She lets him in on her plan to bust him out of prison should he had gone, which involved costumes. Jason likes that idea and they run upstairs.


The realtor brings Johnny and Olivia to another place, but Olivia doesn’t think he needs all this. They look at the view and Olivia notices it's right across from Jason's place. He promises he never considered that, but declares he wants this for them and asks her to move in with him. He wants them to have a life together, but she says that can never happen.
