Adrienne tells him the entire story about being locked up in Statesville, thanks to Anjelica. Lucas is overwhelmed. He asks if she still loves him and wants to be with him. Adrienne tears up. She loves him. He can tell she also still loves Justin. Adrienne says when she heard Bonnie and Justin were together, she was surprised. She didn’t know he felt that way for her still. It changed her feelings. “Justin rescued me,” she says. She was flooded with relief, felt grateful and love. She admits they kissed. She sobs that she’s sorry. Lucas insists he’ll be fine and doesn’t want her pity. He tells her they’re over. She cries and then pleads. She blubbers that she loves him. “Yeah me too,” he says. She goes and he breaks down.
At the Memphis hospital, Sonny sleeps as Justin and Paul discuss the search for Will and Sonny’s love for Paul. Paul doesn’t doubt his fiance’s love. He knows if Ben hadn’t showed up, they’d have a great marriage but feels he needs to be realistic. If Will is alive, he could lose Sonny. He asks Justin for advice, knowing that he just went through a similarity in his own love life. Justin says he has a choice to either take the high road and want what’s best for Sonny, or the low road and look out for yourself. Justin thinks if he had fought harder, he wouldn’t have lost Adrienne. Paul appreciates the support. They reminisce over the first time they met in Dubai when Justin wanted him to fight for his son. Justin calls Paul a good man.
