Tracy chastises Lulu for missing the first two days of PCU classes. Lulu explains that she's going to quit college and Edward wants Lulu to reimburse the tuition money that they've given her. Just then, a studious looking Dillon comes in the room and asks his grandfather for the spreadsheet for ELQ's 3rd quarter. All jaws drop to the floor.
Edward tells Tracy that he's going to take Dillon on a tour of the ELQ office building tomorrow. Tracy thinks that Dillon is young and impulsive and that by tomorrow he might choose to be an airline pilot. Edward thinks that something good is going to happen with Dillon - that he has grown up the last few weeks.
At the Q's door, Georgie offers to take Lulu home with her instead of making her face them. She walks into the room and pronounces that "It's over, I've had the abortion. Alright, let's start the screaming now." Dillon asks her if she's okay and Edward sadly says that no one is in the position to question her decision. Tracy says that they don't agree with her decision, but it was her choice to make. Edward proclaims that the matter is concluded and invites Tracy to join him in the living room for a brandy. Lulu is relieved at their (lack of) reaction and Dillon is concerned that she might be in pain. She says that she's numb. He offers to have Cook make her something and Georgie offers to call Lulu's family. "I wish you could call the one person who could tell me that everything is going to be ok." A sad LuLu continues that her mom can't help her now.
Lulu insists to Luke she's not going to run away to get an abortion. Luke tries to convince her otherwise stating it's dreadfully stressful around Port Charles but Lulu plans to go through with the abortion that evening. Dillon enters asking if she's still going ahead with it? Lulu snaps that if he's come to scream and yell at her to just leave. But Dillon wants to apologize for being so hurtful to her lately. Dillon offers to accompany her to her "appointment". She declines but thanks him for getting off her case because it makes things much easier. He confides that he is quite relived that she is making this decision because a part of him knows he's not ready to be a father.
At the clinic, Luke tells her there's still time to consider this decision further and if she has doubts, she needs to take more time. Lulu replies that she doesn't and thanks him for all his support but wants to go in the clinic alone. He tries to disagree but she can't go through with this with her dad and asks him to go see Laura tonight. Luke agrees making certain that's what she wants and hugs her goodbye. Lulu walks towards the door as Luke drives off.
Tracy approaches Luke outside wondering where he's been? She demands to know why he's supporting Lulu when there are so many far reaching repercussions with her decision. She asks what Luke is holding out on her? He denies keeping anything a secret. Tracy tries to explain that Lulu will probably regret her decision horribly one day and Luke asks if she's upset about Lulu's or her own decision? Tracy realizes Lulu told Luke about Tracy's own abortion years earlier.
Edward walks in and asks where Lulu is? Dillon explains that nothing has changed and to leave her alone and not to get on her case one last time. Edward tries to understand explaining that he realizes Dillon tried everything he could! Lulu storms in standing up to Edward yet again telling him it's her choice and it's made. Luke joins them and heads out the door with her.
Dillon, Tracy and Edward sit quietly as Lulu's appointment gets closer by the second.
Lulu decides to terminate the pregnancy and tells Luke she had to let Dillon know. Edward and Dillon interrupt them asking what her decision is. She stands up and approaches Dillon telling him she's decided to terminate the pregnancy! Dillon, furiously shaking his head calls Lulu a selfish bitch! Luke gets in his face and tells him to back off but Edward starts in on her. Dillon continues telling Lulu that God forbid she gain a little weight or only carry a baby for nine months. He then asks if it's about jealousy over Georgie or maybe, just maybe she's finally getting what she wants "daddy's attention". Lulu responds by smacking him in the face!
She snaps back asking Dillon if he thinks saying horrible things to her would ever make her want to have this baby? Luke threatens for them to back off because he'll take her out of the country to have the procedure if he has to. Lucky storms in and asks why of all times to play father to Lulu would he choose this to help her with? Edward yells that she just has to give the baby to a real family. Luke laughs stating this isn't a real family, it's a pack of wolves with pricey kibble! He stands up for his daughter that she's the one that made this decision for herself as Elizabeth interrupts them and drags Lulu outside.
Sitting down with Lulu Liz asks her if she's certain about her decision. With everything going on and Dillon loving another woman Lulu asks Liz what she'd do if she was in the same position?
Lucky gets in his face and Luke responds back that it must be nice for him to have all the answers and tells him to grow up. He starts talking about what Laura would truly want but Lulu screams at Lucky to stop it!
Nikolas enters offering his opinion and tells everyone he supports Lulu 100% if this is what she's decided. Lucky screams that everyone has lost their mind if they think they're helping Lulu. Nikolas gets in Lucky's face and tells him to get out and take his wife home so Luke and him can handle this. Lucky storms out while Luke tells the rest to leave because Lulu isn't feeling well. Edward starts in on them but at that moment, Lulu passes out in her dad's arms. After regaining her strength, she sits alone with Luke thanking him for all his help against the psycho clan that confronted her today. He assures her she could have taken them on by herself.
