Luke's family and friends plead with him to get help for his alcoholism.
Luke comes to in an empty warehouse duct taped to a chair with his family, Nikolas, Sonny and an interventionist encircling him. Luke predictably rages against it insisting he is not an alcoholic, but if they want to talk to him about killing Jake then bring it on. He learns everyone has written a letter and will read it out loud to him.
Lulu goes first and tells her father the only thing that mattered to her when she was a child was being with him. Even though she resented him for not being around much, she couldn’t ever hate him. She notes he has always supported her and recalls when he helped her through her abortion. Lulu says he is not the man she accepted back into her life anymore. She calls him suicidal and says he has been replaced by a man who doesn’t care about anyone else, least of all himself. She asks him to get help because she needs a dad in her life. Luke tells her she is wrong.
Ethan goes next and asks his father to get some help. Luke in turn tells him how disappointed he is in him. Sonny interrupts reminding him how he's always been able to balance being a father with a friend. They reminisce about the camping trip with Lucky. Sonny tells him watching him with Lucky made fatherhood look fun and made him want to be a dad. Sonny doesn’t want this disease to get the best of him. He urges him to get the help he needs.
Nikolas gets up and tells his former step father that he always admired how he has been able to accept people as they are, but the alcohol is robbing him of that. Carly then bluntly tells her uncle that the alcohol is robbing him of his relationships. She asks him to fight back and get treatment. Luke won't give up who he is. Carly doesn't want that, she just wants him to give up the booze.
Tracy's up next, but Luke asks her not to hide behind the letter and to just say what she has to say. Tracy tearfully expresses that she has loved loving him, but she does not accept his disease. She knows she has enabled him because she thought he could only love her when he was drunk. She recalls how it changed when Helena kidnapped her and he still loved her. She thinks alcohol is stealing his soul and says if he had cancer she would expect him to seek treatment, so she expects him to seek treatment for this. Luke tells her he married her with no agenda, but he points out she can't say the same because she wants to change him. He tells her it will never happen. He won't change, not even for her.
Luke swivels his chair around to Lucky and says, "Your turn cowboy." Lucky tells his father he was his hero growing up and in some ways he always will be. Lucky recalls all he has learned from him and says he is the best dad any kid could ask for. Lucky assures him he hasn't lost faith in him and recalls when they reunited after their first horrible rift years ago. Lucky knows what he is going through right now when it comes to facing an addiction and pleads with him to fight because the disease has him. Lucky cries as he orders his father to wake up. He says his son just died, so he needs his father and his wisdom, clarity and strength. Lucky doesn’t want a faded, diminished vision of him. He wants him. He wants his dad. Lucky doesn't want to walk through this nightmare without his father. Luke says he would do anything for him, but he will not lie to him. He will not say something just because he needs to hear it. Luke declares he ran down Lucky's son and he has to live with that fact. Lucky now has to live with the fact that he wasn't drunk and he is not an alcoholic and does not have a disease. Luke addresses the group and asks if they are done.
The counselor tells Luke arrangements have been made to take him to an inpatient rehab. Luke is incensed and declares he will not seek treatment because he is not an alcoholic. One by one the group tells Luke he will be cut out of their lives if he does not get help. Luke asks to be let out of the chair and Ethan cuts him loose. Luke stands up, tells the group there's a bottle with his name on it and leaves.
