    A Slight Turn in the Tide.

    Thursday, February 08 2007

    Down the hall in an office, Sonny tells Carly that there's not a day in his life that he doesn’t love and miss her. She reaches out for his hands and tells him that she loves him too. She says that he's a part of her and always will be. She gives him a loving kiss. Mid-kiss, she comes to her senses and says she has to marry Jax because she can't be with him. As Sonny starts to explain that things would be different this time, Carly says they need to figure out a way to save their lives before they talk about their relationship. Before long Craig comes in and asks, "Am I interrupting?" (Sonny pretends he's still cuffed.) He asks how soon Sonny can arrange his escape? Sonny tells Mr. Craig that all he has to do is make one phone call and the plan can be set in motion. Mr. Craig dials the phone for him and holds the phone up to his mouth.

    Over at Jason's, Spinelli gets out some of is video game headphones and adjusts them so they are ready for "real world covert action." Mike comes over and says he can get them into the lobby. Apparently, his bookie likes to do business in a little exterior alleyway in the back that no one knows about. Just as Jason and Spinelli are ready to leave; Ric shows up in anticipation that Jason is going to try a hero's rescue attempt. He cockily informs Jason to go ahead with his plan. He says, "With any luck you'll get shot and create a diversion so we can go in." Just then Jason's phone rings -- it's Sonny. He tells Jason to have the speed boats waiting at Pier 17 and tell the guards to ignore any extra activity. Then, he asks Jason to tell the boys that he and Carly love them. The call ends and Jason makes the arrangements. Then, he tells Spinelli that it's time to go -- even though Spinelli thinks the DA set them up.

    At the Metro Court, after Craig tears the phone away from Sonny's mouth, Sonny tells Craig he has to get to the waterfront on his own. Craig says that he doesn't need to get anywhere because the waterfront is just a decoy so that he can leave the way he originally planned – and then walks out. Soon, a goon comes back in to take Carly for a walk. As she starts to leave with him she pretends to fall and Sonny is able to knock the goon out and take his gun.

    Sam and Liz Team UP.

    Inside, Lulu gets thrown into another room and left there. She cries in the dark for a while and then finds the light switch. She's shocked to see that Sonny has been deposited in the room as well, only he's been badly beaten and is cuffed. He explains that they didn't want him to lead a revolt, so they immobilized him. He goes on to advise Lulu to stop calling attention to herself and to lay low. He tells her not to show her fear and her father would be proud of her. Then, he asks about Carly. Lulu fills him in on the surgery that Carly is being forced to perform on Robin. Sonny says that Carly is at her best when her back is against the wall…she'll save Robin.

    Carly is dragged down the hall to get her "reward." He throws her into the room to see her "hubby". Then he pulls Lulu out to give them some privacy. Once alone, Carly freaks out when she sees that Sonny is in handcuffs on top of being beaten. He tells her that he's proud of her for trying to save Robin. She nearly gags as she tells him it was just her and a needle & thread sewing human flesh. He tells her to find a paper clip so that she can work on his handcuffs. After she does, she's frantically picking away at his cuffs and angry at Jason for never teaching her how to pick a lock. Then, she finally gets it! He tells her that the goons should've never underestimated her (and gives Carly one of the steamiest looks he's ever given her.) Then he tells her what's going to happen – they are going to lay low in that room and wait until Craig comes back for them. He wants her to run when he tells her to. Carly insists that she won't go without him. Then he goes into confession mode…he tells her that he should've never tricked her into marrying him. He tells her that she's free to do whatever she wants to do with her life "I wanted you to love me and I should've told you. You're my whole life. My wife, my partner, the mother of my children. I love you and I always will."

    From Bad to Worse.

    Monday, February 05 2007

    Sam whispers to Lulu that there is a door at the end of the hallway, and Lulu wants to risk everything by going for it. Nikolas forbids her to move another inch. Just then, Mr. Craig sits next to her and asks if she's going somewhere. He tells her that he's going to shoot one of her legs so that she'll hold still. Just as he's about to do it, Carly does what she does best – creates a diversion! She stands up and proclaims that she doesn't even like Robin, why is she getting her contaminated blood all over her. She is able to convince Mr. Craig to let Emily come work on Robin for a while. As Emily makes her way over to Robin, Mr. Craig traces her pretty face with his fingers and calls her "Emily darling." He puts a gun to Nicolas's face at the same time. He offers to take her somewhere less public and Nikolas jumps up. Sonny restrains Nikolas. They put Lulu in charge of Robin because she obviously needs something to do. They make Carly help her. Then Mr. Craig pulls Emily away and asks her what she's willing to do to help poor Doctor Scorpio. He throws her in the room with Alan and Liz. Liz has been trying to comfort Alan and get him to take deep breaths. Emily takes over. She tells him that his shortness of breath has nothing to do with the concussion he got when they whacked him on the head. Mr. Craig tells them to choose one person to go back and join the group and Liz offers to go.

    The crowd in the Metro Court lobby is growing more frightened by the minute:

    Sonny tells Mr. Craig to shoot him if he has to shoot somebody. Instead, Mr. Craig points his gun at Carly and says, "Lady's first." Then he waves his gun around and invites his hostages to feel free to stretch their legs because he loves moving targets. Sonny tries his best to get through to him that Robin needs doctors; she's bleeding badly and is the closest to her; so she's the one trying to stop the bleeding. Mr. Craig points his gun back at Sonny and fires. The bullet just missed Sonny, and since he didn't flinch, Mr. Craig grants permission for Alan, Emily and Liz work on Robin. Lulu steps aside and her hands are covered in blood. Carly explains that the person they shot is HIV positive and wants permission to help her cousin sanitize her hands. Alan demands that Robin be taken to the hospital and one of the goons whack him on the head and knock him out. "I don't have to do anything," Mr. Craig replies.

    In the lobby, things go from bad to worse. Sam and Max signal each other to try to figure something out, Sonny realizes that Mr. Craig means business and indicates to everyone "No funny business." Nikolas stands up and offers 1 million bucks for every one of the goons if they allow Robin to be evacuated. Sonny sweetens the pot. He offers to use his connections to help them make a clean break. Mr. Craig tells him that the only thing he can do is make his wife open the vault.

    Inside the lobby, Max has discovered that there is one door that the goons forgot to lock. Mr. Craig decides to up the stakes. He pulls out a big duffle bag full of explosives. He shows his captives a device that will implode the bag. He announces that there is a 60-second delay on the detonator and that he and his associates will be in another room playing "hot potato" with it. As soon as they leave the room, Sonny whispers to Carly that as soon as the vault opens, Mr. Craig will blow the whole place up to cover his tracks. His chin quivers as he tells her that there's no way he's going to let his children lose both their parents. (She reaches up and holds his face in her hands.)

    Nice Teamwork.

    Back at the hostage scene Maxi doesn't like the way the goons have ripped Liz's cell phone out of her hand. She tells them that they are risking the life of Lucky's baby. Then, she says they should rob them and get it over with. Mr. Craig decides that they should take a hostage to the vault. They choose Maxi. Then the goons take all jewelry from everyone – including Sam's star necklace from Jason. Carly refuses to take off her engagement from Jax. She tells them to understand the significance of an engagement ring. They don't, so she hands it over. Turns out she was trying to engage them in conversation so she could hear his voice. Sonny doesn't recognize it, but he has a feeling it has something to do with Alcazar. Carly remembers that the voice sounds like a guy who was asking about the vault security. Sonny asks her if Alcazar put anything in the vault. Carly doesn't know, but tells him the manager might. To create a diversion, she marches over to Mr. Craig and tells him to take what he wants and get out. As she reaches to peel off his mask, he pushes a gun to her throat. While Carly is standing face-to-face to Mr. Craig, Sonny is able to go talk to the manager and learn that Alcazar put a silver briefcase in the vault. He signals to Sam to seal the vault, so she quickly pushes the button. As a result, inside the vault an alarm goes off and one of the two goons is able to slip out before the doors slam shut – leaving Maxi and one goon inside.
