Sonny stops by the Quartermaine gatehouse to see Willow. She tells him Michael is up at the main house celebrating Leo’s adoption. Sonny asks to talk to her in private as he has a favor to ask.

At the house, Chase apologizes for being late and hands Brook Lynn flowers. BLQ tells him that he missed the party, and Leo was bummed. Chase explains he was knocked out. Brook Lynn races to him and asks if he’s okay. He jokes he has a hard head and moves in for a kiss. Suddenly Michael shows up to talk to Brook Lynn about ELQ.

Michael explains he and Drew are thinking about merging Aurora and ELQ to get Valentin out, but he thinks Ned is worried it will impact his position. He asks her to keep an eye on her dad as he doesn’t want more family drama. Michael leaves, and Brook Lynn and Chase sit down and reminisce about playing house together. Chase apologizes again for the things he said to Dante about her, but she admits some of what he said was true. Chase tells BLQ that he gets her, just like she gets him. Brook Lynn laughs and says if he gets her then what is she hoping for right now. He moves in to kiss her, only to be interrupted by Leo. Leo asks why Chase missed his party.

BLQ explains to Leo that Chase had to help some friends, and Chase says he couldn’t be in two places at once. Chase asks how the party was, and Leo said it was fun. BLQ brings up the poem Leo was going to read, but he got cold feet. Chase gives him the advice to pretend he’s just performing in front of one person and asks Leo if he can read his poem to him. Leo agrees and recites his poem from memory, which is about the planet revolving and life on it.

Back at the gatehouse, Willow asks Sonny if this is about Nina and the visitation case. Sonny says it isn’t, and it’s about Michael. He knows Michael is angry and lashing out at him and asks her if she can talk to Michael and let him know that he loves him. Suddenly, Michael enters. Sonny tells Michael he gets he’s angry, and he wants them to be able to move forward. He admits he came to talk to Willow about building a bridge. Michael tells his father to leave Willow out of this and talk to him.

Sonny tells Michael he’s his son, and there is too much love between them to throw their relationship away. Michael thinks it’s just like his dad putting this on him, but Sonny owns this is his fault. Sonny says they are alike and deal with anger issues. Michael admits he’s angry about what Sonny did to his mother. Sonny insists he never wanted the divorce and tried to fight for his marriage, but Carly walked away. Michael exclaims she caught him in bed with Nina.

Michael lashes out that he doesn’t want to see Sonny anymore, he wants nothing to do with his father and is done. He vows to erase Sonny from his and his family’s life. Sonny tells his son that he will always love him, but he won’t forget this. And if Michael wants forgiveness one day, he’ll have to beg. Michael tells him not to hold his breath. Sonny walks out.
