Kate tells Sonny that when Amelia comes forward with the fact that she is just Connie Falconeri from Benson Hurst, she'll lose everything. Sonny gets her a drink and then tells her that Amelia won't do it. Kate says that any TV producer would love to reveal the fact that a major fashion mogul has been lying for years about her identity. "Why wouldn't she?" Kate asks. Sonny's answer is brief. "Self preservation." He says that he and Amelia have "a little bit of an involvement" and if the network finds out about it, they'll drop her show in light of the fact that he has a questionable career. Sonny assures Kate that Amelia has already agreed to keep quiet, for now. However, he doesn't understand why Kate isn't willing to come forward with her past anyway. He asks what she's ashamed of did she cheat or sleep her way to the top? That wasn't the case, Kate says. She worries that the publisher, readers and advertisers will feel foolish if they've aspired to live up to a common girl from Benson Hurst. She thinks that she'll make people feel ridiculous and they'll shut her out. "Kate Howard will be a joke," Kate fights tears as she speaks. "I've made a lot of sacrifices and my career will be over," Kate cries, "But I guess that's what you wanted all along." Sonny says that he didn't want this; he just wanted her to be Connie Falconeri to the world. He says, however, that he completely understands the need to live up to people's perceptions. In fact, they are a lot a like. He says in his world, if anything real or vulnerable shines through his persona, people get hurt. Kate says that it's the same in her world, only a little more civilized. "It's life and death, at least it is for me," she quietly states.

Satisfied with his answer, Amelia tells him everything about Sam's past. She admits that she came to Port Charles to build a show around Sam and then destroy her.

Noah is talking "strutting" lessons from Anna, as Robin and Patrick look on. Anna tells him to "take the stage and every woman in it."

Anna shrugs and tells Robin that she's had tougher assignments, although she can't recall them at the moment.
Sam comes downstairs to see that Spinelli is home. She asks him to help get her in to see Jason at Pentonville. Spinelli isn't too pleased with her - out of loyalty to Jason. She admits that she watched while Maureen Harper walked away with Jake. It doesn't take long for Spinelli's resolve to crumble. He says, "The innocent one shouldn't have to pay for your pain." Sam explains that she froze when she watched it happen and that she and Jason have a lot to deal with. She tells him that it needs to be face-to-face. Spinelli says that he knows what it feels like to be cast aside, and then agrees to get her in to see Jason.

Kate tells Sonny that if she looses her job she won't show up dead like he could, but she'll be gone just the same. Her prestige, notoriety, and sense of purpose will all be gone. He asks her if she ever considered telling the truth along the way. Kate says that she almost did when she made head assistant. But one day her mother called the magazine because her grandmother had died. Before she continues, she asks Sonny if he remembers her mother's accent. Sonny laughs at the memory of it. Then Kate goes on to say that her mother used her very best language and voice, but the receptionist apparently thought her accent was quite funny. So after they had their conversation, she realized that everyone was staring at her. "I realized in that moment that I could never tell these people the truth about my background." She explains that she fired most of the people soon after, but for the rest of that day they made jokes about that woman who called. Sonny asks Kate how she handled it and Kate sadly says that she told them that the woman was the cleaning lady. Then she went to the bathroom and cried. Kate stares into the distance and says that after that, there was no turning back and that she had to keep climbing. She cries as she tells Sonny that this job has cost her everything…she has no children, and no relationships to speak of.
Carly walks into the Metro Court and Jerry tells her that he has some bad news. Carly thinks that it's about Jax, but Jerry says that he wants a peaceful co-existence and Jax won't come home until they do. "What will it take to win you over?" Jerry asks. Carly says, "How good are you?" She explains that as someone who used to work with Lorenzo Alcazar, he might know of other people who might have wanted him dead. Or, where he might go if he was still alive. Carly says that she'll be the best friend Jerry ever had if he can get the charges against Jason dropped.
Now, it's Sonny's turn to tell Kate about his early years in his career. He admits that he wanted the power and respect more than anything.
