Lorenzo has called Skye over to talk to him. When she arrives, he tells her that something has happened and he needs to explain before she hears it from someone else. He tells her that he almost killed Lulu Spencer tonight. He explains how Lulu became a witness to the Spinelli situation and why she needs to be silenced. He goes on… because Lulu's not a member of his family, she is expendable, that's just the way it works. Skye is stunned. She doesn't know what to do with this information.

At the Metro Court, Jax tells Alexis to wise up – her daughter made a run for Jason the first chance she got. He challenged Alexis to remember what happened the last time she tried to keep Sam apart from Jason, “she slept with your husband!” Jax wants to impress upon Alexis that Sam is always going to Jason first, so why is she risking her health to defend her?

Sonny says she can sleep, but first she has to do something.
Skye reminds Lorenzo that technically she's not his family. Now that she knows what's going on, she's expendable too. Lorenzo tells Skye that he would never deprive their daughter of her mother. He'll never cross that line. Skye asks if this is supposed to make her happy. Is she supposed to forget that he almost murdered an innocent girl? Lorenzo doesn't expect Skye to forgive him. He tells her that killing is the ugly part of his business that he never wanted her to know about. He knows there's no going back now, and he realizes that it's over between them. He knows that Skye will take Lila Rae away, and he doesn't have the strength to stop her. Skye suggests a counter offer.
Dillon explains to Georgie that he's mad at himself for making her upset all the time. He wants to make her happy. But he explains that he can't desert lulu right now. Georgie tells him that Lulu exists from crisis to crisis, why does he have to be the one to save her? His cell phone rings. It's Lulu. She tells him that she's skiing with a friend and not to worry. Dillon asks why Professor Pete was so worried about if she's just off skiing with her friends? She thanks him for worrying about her and tells him that she's calling her brothers too, so he doesn't have to. After they hang up, he tells Georgie that he feels like a jerk.
Sam admits to Alexis that she left the house to see Jason. She tells her that if Jason had asked her to leave the country, she would have gone. She tells her mother that Jax is right; she chooses Jason above all else and always will. Also, if Alexis can't accept that, she shouldn't be her attorney. There's a knock at the door and it's Ric. Sam lets him in and he tells them both that he's taking her back to lock up.

A not-so-magical looking Colleen visits Helena, who is bound and gagged in a cellar somewhere. She says that Helena's wish has come true -- she was fired. “With no one to care for you after I'm gone, you'll probably die. Everyone in this house deserves to die.”
