Shawn and Sonny rescue Alexis, Johnny and Carly spend precious moments together, and Edward gives Emma a gift.

He tries to suffocate Johnny until Lulu runs up and demands Todd’s jacket to put pressure on the wound. She is upset with Todd for just standing there. Carly speeds up in the car and Lulu helps her get Johnny in before continuing to search for Dante.
By the dock, Sonny and Jax have lost Jerry and are getting sicker. Jax leaves on foot while Sonny is joined by Shawn. They hop on a boat and get up next to the vessel Alexis is in.
Jerry leads Alexis onto a boat. They are riding off to their future so she should get comfy. She is sure Jax and Sonny will stop at nothing to rescue her but Jerry ties her up and tells her about the bomb. He will deactivate it using a remote once they are safely away. He drops into a coughing fit and she asks if he is sick. More than you know he tells her, but is anticipating a recovery soon. He leaves and Sonny and Shawn come in moments later. She assumes they diffused the bomb but they know nothing about it. Alexis panics - the bomb is still live! Shawn leaves with Alexis and Sonny stays, but soon falls to the ground from his illness.
Jerry is untying the boat when Jax walks up and shows him the boat keys he has found. Jerry explains he is dying and has to leave. When The Balkan shot him the bullet was laced with radiation that is eating him up. He had some people find a cure but he still owes $88 million. Jax throws the keys out into the water and Jerry rages that he made a serious mistake. He points a gun at Jax and pulls out the remote to set off the bomb. Out of nowhere Sonny shoots Jerry, who fires back and hits a gasoline can. Another shot lights a puddle of gas on fire.
Back at the warehouse, Alexis thanks Shawn for saving her life and they kiss passionately.

Todd offers to go with her but she wants to do it alone.
