At the Metro Court, Anna and Duke can't get a hello from Luke who's distracted with his laptop. They leave him while he listens to Helena's DVD with headphones. Laura joins him wanting to know what has his interest. He pretends to be watching silly internet videos and inquires after her married life. He hears her mother is happy for her. She's surprised at that as he admits he is too. Laura mentions Lulu is worried about Tracy's health after seeing her at GH. She decides if Luke can be happy for her marriage, she can worry about Tracy's health. Tracy's fine and he brushes it off. Laura looks at Luke and becomes worried about him instead. Lucy interrupts and drags Laura to another table. Laura's distracted and watches Luke rush out. Lucy's afraid her distractions will come between them but Laura's only concerns are that their visions for Deception are different. She recommends they think bigger and Lucy likes the sound of that. On the terrace, Duke wonders if Anna is mixing business with pleasure to solve the shooting. She changes the subject and asks about ELQ. He gives Anna pause when he brings up the interesting visit he had with Ava Jerome. Anna's concerned that he believes something was dodgy about Ava and doesn't want him mixed up in the mob again. He kisses her hand in assurance that he won't. Mac and Felicia come by and split the couple up. Privately, Mac asks Duke to be his best man while Felicia asks Anna to be her maid of honor nearby. They both agree. The four gather together to toast the moment and Felicia asks when Duke and Anna are going to re-tie the knot.

At Kelly's, Silas hands Sam the custody papers to take Rafe off her hands. Sam wonders why he's interested in Rafe now. Silas thinks the PI in her makes her paranoid. She claims it's the mother in her and wants to know what Silas' angle is. He argues that everyone there may think of Rafe as tainted because his father was a madman. Silas admits to thinking of him as family and wants to be his guardian. Alexis and Rafe join them and Sam announces Silas has petitioned to be his guardian. Silas explains to Rafe he may seem like a stranger now, but he'll feel like family soon. Sam follows Rafe out to support him before he leaves for counseling. Alexis tries to advise Silas on what's best for Rafe. Outside, Elizabeth waits for AJ to tell her something. Duke joins them surprised to see Stephen Clay inside. Elizabeth explains who Silas is.
