Alexis stares at the glass of wine she’s poured at her house. She swishes it around under her nose, but then storms into another room with the glass. Later, Sam arrives to warn her mother that Liz has gone to the cops with her suspicions, and she asks if Julian did something to Franco to protect her. Alexis says Julian swears didn’t do anything to Franco and she believes him. Sam is beside herself and asks her mother if she’s falling in love with Julian again. Alexis assures Sam that she’s not, but that he has helped her. Sam sees the open bottle of wine and doesn’t think he’s helped her that much. Alexis promises her though she came close to drinking, she stopped when she saw a photo of her, Kristina and Molly. Sam believes her mom, and they hug. Sam must go, but warns her mom not to answer the door to anyone because it may be the cops.

Carly walks off, and Dillon tells Kiki that she is a good person. Kiki has accepted that it’s time for her to be happy again, and Dillon makes her happy. Carly goes up to her office where Michael and Nelle are still talking. She asks a favor of Nelle. Nelle heads out, and later Michael confides in his mom that he may have found something with Nelle. Carly thinks her son is misreading signals because Nelle is involved with a married man. Back in the restaurant, Lulu thinks Kevin’s suggestion of family therapy is ridiculous, but he tries to make her see what is best for Charlotte. She refuses to hear him out and storms off. Laura is shocked that Kevin can be so impartial about a man who shot him. Kevin promises her that he hasn’t forgotten.
Nelle arrives at Sonny’s place to go through Morgan’s mail as Carly asked. Sonny doesn’t like the idea of her going through his son’s mail, and confronts Nelle about the anger he can see hiding behind her fake smile. He warns her that the anger will consume her life if she keeps feeding it.
