Connie's custody hearing begins, Scott visits Julian Jerome, and Franco worries about being Heather's son.
At the courthouse, Diane congratulates Scott on the news he has a son. He doesn't want to hear the name. Diane doesn't think Franco's bad but denies being his girlfriend – Carly is the only woman for him.
On the phone in his room, Julian tells Ava he hasn't spoken to Sonny and answers Alexis' knock. She comes in with his newspaper. The headlines read, "Good Morning Port Charles, I am Julian Jerome." She asks if he's proud but jokes she must really want to be there after their kiss last night. She slaps him when he asks if she's come back for more. She just left someone who was in the mob and tells him not to go near Sam or Danny. He wants that to be Sam's decision. Besides, there's no proof he's after Sonny and he'd never hurt Sam or Danny. He cares about Alexis too and thinks something's going on between them. What they have now is more mature, like red wine. His lies by omission have soured the wine for her and she leaves for court. Scott visits later, knowing that Julian was responsible for the recording of Lazaro conspiring with Corinthos. He realizes it wasn't out of the kindness of his heart and asks what Julian wants. Julian claims he's a legitimate business man and offers to do a spread of him and Lucy in his paper. He remembers Lucy was involved with his dad…and responsible for his death. He insinuates nothing will happen to Lucy, knowing he and Scott can work together.
Sonny asks Olivia to talk about what happened last night when she wakes up in his bed. Olivia reminds him how upset he was about learning that Julian is Danny's grandfather. She's glad she was there but it doesn't have to mean something. He reminds her she's been there for him always, even when she gave him room to be with Connie. He doesn't know where this will go but tells her how beautiful she is. She thanks him and gets up but he's not ready for her to leave and they kiss.

They agree to babysit during the hearing.
Carly wakes up in Franco's room and kisses him. He asks if in the cold light of day she thinks this is a mistake. He's the son of a second rate D.A. with a crazy mother who hates his guts. Carly corrects him, Heather hates her guts but Franco wonders if this is when she dumps him and goes back to Derek. Carly's not interested in Derek and wants Franco to stop pushing her away. She showers while he answers the door. There's a delivery of dead roses for Carly and a note ' to stay away from my son'…signed Heather Webber. Carly rejoins him and asks why he got her dead flowers. He hides Heather's note and chases Carly back to bed to make love.
