Johnny agrees and Ethan warns luck runs out. Once Ethan has left, an emotional Olivia stops by fearing for Johnny's safety.

Lucky comes to Sonny's office to remind him of Lily's death. He can't understand why he would go down that path again and wonders how far he is willing to go to keep Kristina safe. Sonny throws accusations at the Lopez brothers for the bombing, but Lucky thinks everyone Sonny cares about could become a casualty in his war with Johnny. Sonny won't let that happen and says it's his problem, not Lucky's. Lucky leaves and Kristina walks in after being summoned by her father. She blames him for the bomb, but he denies it. She doesn’t believe him, but tells him she is staying away from Johnny so he doesn't die. She warns if he ever hurts Johnny he will never see her again. She starts to leave, but Sonny says her disrespectful actions and attitude have consequences, which means she will now have a curfew, her credit cards are cut off and she will come over every Tuesday to discuss things with him. If she lies to him, more things will be eliminated from her life.

Maxie says she is planning to have Spinelli find her and Matt kissing in order to fix things with Spinelli. Lulu thinks the men might get tired of her games and she'll be left alone. Once Lulu leaves, Maxie calls Spinelli to come over and then answers the door to Matt. She reminds him he is only there to help her get to Spinelli, but he thinks she has feelings for him and kisses her as Spinelli opens the door.
