On the pier, Julian pulls a gun on Nelle and tells her that he should have ended this game long ago. She reminds him that she has a document Martin will release upon her death blowing all his secrets up. Julian doesn’t care if Sonny kills him or not, the important thing is Wiley will be protected from her.

Back at the hospital, Chase tells Ned and Olivia he’s been called in on another case but leaves another officer with them. After he leaves, Portia gives Ned and Olivia the news that Brook Lynn’s condition is critical and she’s undergoing and extremely difficult procedure. Portia says her best surgeons are working on her, but that is all they know. Olivia holds Ned as he’s reduced to tears. Ned can’t bare if Brook Lynn dies that her last memories of her father were of him slamming the door in her face. In Jason’s room, Sam is convinced Brando sabotaged the bike, but Jason says the part could have been faulty and Brando has been forthcoming with him and Sonny.

Jason tells her to stay with Michael and he’s on this. Later Chase gets word that Nelle’s apartment has been cleaned out and her car is gone. Carly feels they need to get Monica to the hospital seeing she was drugged, and one of the cops offers to take her. Chase swears to Willow that they will find Nelle.

Sonny warns Julian if his grandson isn’t found then he will be Julian’s judge, jury and executioner.
