Claire confides in Lucky, Nikolas has a chat with Warren, Michael gets a few visitors, and Patrick's jealousy intensifies.
Alexis comes to Wyndemere where Nikolas brings up the impending civil trial. He promises he will fix this by applying sufficient financial pressure to get Warren to back off. Alexis wonders if that will be enough to make up for the death of his son. He points out she didn't want Kiefer to die, but she thinks even if there is the slightest doubt that she did, she can't call herself innocent. Nikolas doesn’t want her to beat herself up and insists the Bauers will leave her alone. She doesn't want him to do anything illegal or improper when the family is grieving, but he thinks it's time for them to see what happens when the Cassadines push back.
Nikolas meets with Warren at the Metro Court and while he is sorry Kiefer is dead, he points out he did beat Kristina. He says his grief is his own business, but when it spills over to his family, it's his business. Nikolas warns him he will stop him no matter what it takes.
Sonny visits Michael in prison to tell him Jason will be joining him in order to protect him. He urges his son to hold on a while longer until they can get him out and Michael assures him he will make him proud. A guard comes for Michael and then Anthony walks in the visitor's room. Sonny tells him Jason is coming to protect Michael so their deal is worthless. He adds Johnny has a bad attitude and Anthony threatens Michael. Sonny warns he can retaliate on the inside against him or on the outside against Johnny.
At Johnny's place, Olivia tries to convince him to back off Sonny, but Johnny plans to destroy him. She won't stand around and watch him self-destruct and storms out. Ethan comes to Johnny's door saying he's in need of cash. Johnny tells him he has plenty of ways for him to make some dough, but things got a tad more dangerous sine the last time they spoke. He explains he's a marked man now that Jason is going to prison, but that makes Sonny vulnerable now and he wants to break him. Ethan doesn't want to get killed so he passes on working with him. Once Ethan has left, Sonny stops by to warn Johnny if he crosses him or hurts anyone in his family, he is done. They exchange threats as Olivia returns. Sonny tells her she better talk to her boyfriend because he is running out of time.
At the police station, Dante shows Lucky and Claire an old case that suggests Judge Carroll took a bribe. Claire will take it to him to convince him to overturn Michael's sentence, but she needs more concrete proof first. Lucky does some digging and finds there's nothing fishy about the case. He has another idea and asks Dante how desperate he is to get Michael released. Dante says he won't fabricate evidence and frame an innocent man because then it would make them no better than Sonny.
Dante goes to the prison to tell Michael they aren't giving up until they get him home. Michael tells him Sonny is already working on it and will get him released soon. Dante suggests he not put all his faith in his father because that's what got him sent to prison in the first place.
After a visit with Dr. Lee, a flustered Claire sees Lucky with his kids in the park. She calls his kids adorable and says she wants one. She goes on and on about how much she loves kids, as Lucky politely indulges her. She says her biological clock is ticking and wonders if he can hear it. Lucky can definitely hear it and she asks if he really likes being a dad. Lucky tells her being a father is more important to him than anything. He continues that in the end, the only that will matter is the relationships with the people you love and the rest will pale in comparison. Impressed, she wonders if there are anymore like him at home.
