Monica grieves AJ in the Quartermaine crypt with Tracy. Michael arrives and Tracy leaves them alone. Michael tells Monica he invited Sonny but he refused to come out of respect for her. She’s glad Sonny had the decency to stay away. Michael just wanted his parents there. Inside, Ned tells Morgan and Kiki he wants to set a trap for Luke and proposes using Kiki as bait. He promises Morgan that Kiki will not be in any danger. Morgan isn’t willing to risk Kiki but Kiki is ready to stop Luke’s skeevy fondling. Ned directs Kiki to the den and heads to the terrace to make sure Tracy watches it all. Morgan makes one more attempt to change Kiki’s mind but she’s determined to get Luke. In another room, Liz tells Sonny and Ava that she hopes the person in custody for shooting AJ can answer some questions so everyone can move on. Carly enters and agrees they all would like to know what happened to AJ. Ava and Liz quickly excuse themselves and Carly demands to know why Sonny’s there. He’s there to comfort Michael and tells Carly to leave it alone. On the terrace, Luke calls someone and tells them Spencer is a problem, but his weakness is Emma Drake. Ava walks into the den and overhears the tail end of the conversation. Luke is surprised to see her. Ava tells him that something happened to her daughter this morning and she’s going to find out what. Luke watches Ava’s butt as she walks away and calls her back. He pulls her close and tells her she has great … assets. She disgustedly walks away. Outside, Ned intercepts Tracy and points her to look into the den where Kiki is now alone with Luke. Inside, Luke tells Kiki he knows she has daddy issues but he isn’t available. He loudly proclaims his love for Tracy and outside Tracy beams. She tells Ned that she knew Kiki was the instigator. Ned realizes Luke figured out their trap. Sonny, Carly and Tracy join Monica and Michael at the crypt. Sonny offers to leave if Monica wants. Monica allows it. Everyone makes it in time for the service, and Monica somberly lays flowers on AJ’s grave. Afterward, she goes inside to get ready for the reception. Michael tells Sonny it helped that he was there. Sonny will always be there for Michael. Inside, Ava turns on the news and learns Franco is in jail with Carlos. Carly joins her and thinks it would be funny if Franco and Carlos became friends. In fact, Carly wonders what those jailbirds are talking about right now. Meanwhile, Kiki finds Morgan and worries that Luke will come after her now that she set him up. Morgan holds Kiki and promises to take care of her. Ava enters, then leaves when she sees them together. Morgan thinks Ava could be mad about something else. Later, Liz finds Luke alone in the den and he offers her a drink. Nik enters and tells Liz that Spencer crashed Emma’s recital. Luke’s ears prick up at the mention of the children. After they leave he makes a call. Tracy later joins Luke and tells him she saw Kiki hit on him courtesy of Ned. Luke tells Tracy he only wants her. Later, Michael tells Carly she and Sonny are the best parents he could have. Outside, Sonny enters the crypt and can’t escape AJ’s ghost. AJ congratulates Sonny on getting what he always wanted – Michael all to himself. He tells Sonny goodbye. Ava arrives.
At the Metro Court, Ava calls someone to look into Sabrina. She tells them what she wants them to do and can’t afford any mistakes. She leaves for the funeral and runs into Carly outside her room. Carly is shocked Ava would show her face at the funeral and thought she would be too busy worrying about Carlos’ arrest. Ava knows Carly knows about the shooting and warns her to back off.
At the Quartermaine estate, Tracy and Ned argue about Luke. Ned tells Tracy that Luke threatened to kill him but she can’t believe Luke meant any harm. Ned wonders what harm Luke could cause to people less equipped to handle him. She insists she is marrying Luke and no one will stop her. Meanwhile, Morgan enters with Kiki to protect her from Luke. She’s concerned her mother might be jealous but Morgan tells her he has nothing to do with Ava anymore. When Ava calls him he tells her it isn’t a good time and hangs up on her. They join Tracy and Ned, and Ned is shocked to hear Tracy accuse Kiki of making a pass at Luke. Kiki thinks it was a mistake to come and Tracy storms out. Morgan tells Ned that Luke is the one who has been hitting on Kiki. Ned wants to hear the whole story so Kiki lays out all the dirty details, including his attack on her at Franco’s place. Ned believes her and tells her that Luke once raped a woman and spun it into a seduction. He asks Kiki to keep this just among them so they can set a trap that will expose Luke to Tracy. In another room, Luke tells Spencer to keep his mouth shut or Emma will pay the price. Sonny enters and asks if everything is okay. Luke thinks Spencer is shaken up over the fleeting nature of life. Sonny suggests the conversation is too dark for a child but Luke comments how sharp Spencer is and understands people die every day – even children. Spencer tells Sonny they were actually talking about him. Sonny guesses it’s about Emma and his unanswered calls and promises to make everything better. Nik angrily enters but Spencer won’t leave until he says what he needs to Sonny. Nik apologizes to Luke, and Luke says Spencer now knows bad things happen when you tell tales. Tracy enters and asks to speak to Luke alone. She heard that he threatened to kill Ned and he tells her it’s true. He threatened violence because Ned told him he would live to regret ripping up the prenup. Luke refuses to apologize for loving her and promises it won’t happen again. But he won’t let anyone stand in their way. She heads for the service and he hangs back and calls someone to solve a problem. Meanwhile, Ava finds Sonny. Liz approaches and talks about AJ’s murderer being in custody.
