At the Drake residence, Patrick called Anna to check on Emma. Anna assured him that Emma was fine and confessed that her pleasure to watch Emma. "And Duke's," Anna added with a smile as she glanced at Duke, who patiently sat through a makeover compliments of Emma. Patrick thanked Anna then ended the call. Sabrina smiled awkwardly as she realized that it had been the first time that she had been in Patrick's home without Emma being there. Patrick tenderly kissed Sabrina then reminded her that he had promised her dessert.
Sabrina wondered if Patrick had made the dessert. Patrick laughed as he assured her that he didn't have any desire to kill her. After Patrick disappeared into the kitchen, Sabrina wandered over to a bookshelf where a picture of Patrick and Robin on their wedding day was prominently displayed. Sabrina thoughtfully looked at the wedding picture until Patrick returned with two extravagantly decorated cupcakes. Patrick confessed that he had bought the cupcakes and then had decorated them with Emma.
Patrick and Sabrina playfully flirted as they took a bite of the cupcakes, and then kissed. Things began to heat up, so Patrick checked to make certain that Sabrina was comfortable with him. Sabrina assured him that she was, prompting Patrick to confide that Emma was spending the night with Duke and Anna. Patrick asked Sabrina to spend the night with him, but Sabrina feared that wasn't what Patrick really wanted. Patrick admitted that he had been thinking about taking their relationship to the next level for a while, but Sabrina still had doubts.
Sabrina pointed out that they were in the home that Patrick had once shared with his wife, Robin. Patrick conceded that he had happy memories of Robin in the house, but he admitted that Robin had made a DVD when Robin had thought that she only had a short time to live. He revealed that Robin had encouraged Patrick to find someone he could love and who loved him and Emma. Patrick thought that he had found that woman in Sabrina. Sabrina kissed Patrick then followed him to the bedroom.
In Anna's penthouse, Anna smiled at Duke as Emma applied powder blush to his cheeks. Anna thought that Emma had outdone herself, but Emma insisted that Duke needed something sparkly. Anna suggested that Emma check Anna's jewelry box, so Emma dashed off. Duke groaned good-naturedly then switched gears to ask how Anna felt about Patrick's date with Sabrina. Anna assured him that she liked Sabrina. She was also certain that Robin would approve of Patrick's relationship with the young nurse because Robin had wanted Patrick to be happy.
Emma returned with a set of earrings, which she promptly put on Duke. Anna couldn't resist taking a picture of Duke, so he posed with Emma for the camera. Emma thought of something else that she wanted Duke to wear, so she ran to fetch it. Duke chuckled because Emma reminded him so much of her mother, Robin, at the same age. Anna agreed. Moments later, Emma returned with a tutu for Duke.
Duke was horrified, so Anna explained that men didn't wear skirts. Emma recalled the Duke had worn one at the Nurses Ball, so Duke clarified that it had been a kilt. Meanwhile, Anna received a phone call reporting a shooting in the restaurant. Anna ordered that the hotel be sealed off, and then promised to be in the restaurant right away. After Anna left, Emma fetched another tutu for herself then held up the one that she had wanted Duke to put on.
To Emma's delight, Duke donned the tutu. Emma confessed that she wanted Duke to teach her how to dance the way that he had danced with Anna at the Nurses Ball. Duke turned on some tango music, picked up Emma, and then danced with her. Emma giggled with joy when he pretended to dip her. Later, Duke and Emma were sound asleep, still dressed in their tutus, as the tango music played on.
At the loft, Dante and Lulu tore off their clothes then made their way to the bedroom to make love. Afterwards, Lulu apologized for everything that she had put Dante through. Lulu vowed that she would never lose Dante again. Lulu melted when Dante confessed that he could live off of their love alone. The spell was broken when Dante suddenly burst out laughing as he admitted that he had been lying because he was hungry enough to eat the bed.
Lulu joined in on the laughter as she offered to order Chinese food. The two returned to the living room as Lulu made the call. Dante's cell phone rang while Lulu was on the phone, so he answered it. Moments later, Dante announced that he had to leave because there had been a shooting at Metro Court Restaurant. Concerned, Lulu wondered who had been shot, but Dante didn't know.
After Dante left, Lulu called Maxie to invite Maxie over to eat and catch up. A short time later, Maxie arrived. Lulu was surprised when Maxie admitted that she was starving, so Maxie explained that she was determined to eat healthy for the sake of the baby. Lulu confessed that she couldn't wait to see her baby because Lulu was eager to know if the baby looked like a Spencer or a Falconeri. Maxie hid her guilt behind a polite smile.
Later, Lulu and Maxie read the messages from their fortune cookies. Maxie's fortune warned Maxie that the truth would soon be revealed. Lulu's fortune suggested that something of Lulu's might be lost forever. Lulu found the messages depressing and weird, but Maxie admitted that she might know what they meant. Maxie explained that the operative words in Lulu's fortune were "may be."
Lulu was startled when Maxie suddenly pulled out a pair of red high heels from Maxie's bag. Lulu recognized her favorite shoes, which she had loaned to Maxie a year earlier. Maxie smiled as she suggested that the fortune had been referring to Lulu's missing shoes. Lulu clutched the beloved shoes close as Maxie admitted that the shoes no longer fit Maxie's swollen feet. Lulu chucked as she pointed out that perhaps that was the truth that Maxie's fortune had been referring to.
At the hospital, Elizabeth was surprised when A.J. called out to her. He explained that he had checked to find out when she went on break, so he could stop by with coffee and pastries. Elizabeth was touched by the gesture, so A.J. confessed that it hadn't been completely selfless on his part because he had needed a break from his brother, Franco.
A.J. and Elizabeth found a quiet room to enjoy their coffee and pastries. Their conversation drifted to Michael as Elizabeth suggested that Michael seemed to be healing from the rape. A.J. admired Michael's unbelievable courage and grace under difficult circumstances. Elizabeth was curious if A.J. believed Franco's claims about Franco not arranging for Carter to rape Michael in Pentonville, so A.J. admitted that the video appeared to be legitimate. Elizabeth was surprised when A.J. conceded that he knew what it was like to try to make amends for terrible mistakes, so he identified with Franco on a certain level.
Elizabeth appreciated that A.J. wanted to give Franco the benefit of the doubt, but she warned him that others would not be as forgiving or open-minded. A.J. revealed that Franco and Franco's daughter, Kiki, had moved into the mansion, so he and Tracy were trying to lobby for Franco and Kiki's votes at ELQ. A.J. feared that they had gone too far when Tracy had offered to heat some milk for Kiki, so he had left the house. Elizabeth feared that Tracy's efforts would secure the votes that A.J. needed to retain control of ELQ, but A.J. insisted that he would rather be at the hospital with Elizabeth than cater to Franco and Kiki.
Touched, Elizabeth confessed that she had something important to tell A.J. A.J. was concerned when she revealed that Danny had been admitted to the hospital for testing, so he should talk to Sam. A.J. didn't think that a hospital was a place for a child, but he quickly apologized when he realized that their conversation might remind Elizabeth about losing Jake. Elizabeth admitted that she always missed her son and that there were times when Jake's loss hit her hard, but she assured A.J. that she was fine. Elizabeth had to return to her shift, but she thanked A.J. for knowing that she had needed to see him. A.J. smiled then left to find Sam.
At Metro Court Restaurant, Franco and Carly sat at a private table on the deserted terrace, while Shawn stood at the window of one of the hotel's rooms, trying to get a bead on Franco. Shawn's task was made more difficult when Sonny approached Franco and Carly to ask what was going on. Carly innocently claimed that she had been trying to clear the air between her and Franco, but Sonny didn't buy it. Sonny pointedly warned her that it wasn't a good idea.
Inside the restaurant, Olivia panicked when she had a vision of Sonny standing before her, covered in blood. Olivia feared that Franco intended to shoot Sonny, so she ran to the terrace. Olivia threw herself between Sonny and Franco just as Shawn pulled the trigger. Franco jumped back, as Olivia looked down at her chest, which began to bleed from a gunshot wound. Horrified, Sonny caught Olivia as she stumbled backwards then collapsed.
In the hotel room, Shawn dropped to the floor in shock. "Olivia?" Shawn muttered in disbelief. "Oh, my God. What have I done?" Shawn asked as he realized that he had shot Olivia. In a daze, he broke down the sniper rifle, put it back into a duffel bag, and then made his way to the front door. He froze when he heard Anna and several police officers make their way down the hallway. Shawn waited until the voices had faded away then quickly slipped out of the hotel room.
At the hospital, Nikolas arrived to check on his aunt. He handed Alexis a cup of coffee, but she also wanted the stuffed elephant in his other hand. Nikolas explained that he had picked up the toy for Danny. Alexis was grateful that Nikolas had stopped by to check on her because she had been going crazy since Shawn had left for work. Nikolas asked about Danny's biopsy, so Alexis revealed that the results would be back the following day. Nikolas offered to call in a team of expert doctors to oversee Danny's care, but Alexis wanted to wait until they had the results of the tests.
Alexis changed the subject to find out if Nikolas had told Elizabeth about A.J.'s tryst with Carly. Nikolas confided that he hadn't said anything because he wasn't sure if he intended to tell Elizabeth. He then turned the conversation back to Danny because he wanted Alexis to know that he was eager to help Danny in any way possible. Alexis shifted gears by confessing that she had been at the hospital when Nikolas had recently arrived with a life-threatening gunshot wound. Nikolas was surprised when she explained that Shawn had also been involved in a shooting on the same night.
Alexis explained that Dante and Anna had been pursing a gunman through the park when they had encountered Shawn. According to Alexis, the gunman had taken a shot at Anna when Anna had stopped to question Shawn, but Shawn had been wounded instead. Nikolas was confused about why Shawn had been in the park at night, so Alexis told him that Shawn had been keeping an eye on the loft after Lulu's kidnapping because Shawn worked for Sonny.
Nikolas was shocked that Shawn was on Sonny's payroll because Nikolas had been under the impression that Shawn worked at Kelly's. Alexis explained that Shawn had military training, so Jason had hired Shawn as a bodyguard. However, Sonny had recruited Shawn when Jason had died. Nikolas reminded Alexis that Jason had been Sonny's enforcer, so Nikolas had concerns about Shawn, especially with Alexis' pattern of relationships with men like Sonny, Ric Lansing, and Jerry Jacks.
Alexis argued that Shawn wasn't like Sonny, Ric, or Jerry. "Good, because I would hate to think that my moral, principled, law-abiding aunt is with a man that fries other people's bacon, which he makes killer BLTs with," Nikolas explained. Nikolas glanced up as Shawn approached. Alexis quickly introduced Shawn to her nephew, so they briefly exchanged pleasantries until Nikolas decided to check on Sam and Danny. Alexis warned Nikolas not to wake Sam and Danny up if they were asleep.
After Nikolas left, Shawn was startled when Alexis asked about his business with Sonny. Shawn reminded Alexis that they had an unspoken agreement not to discuss each other's business with Sonny. Alexis thought that it was time for things to change, but Shawn was saved from replying when his phone rang. Alexis told him to answer the call then stepped away to give him privacy.
Nikolas left Sam's room as A.J. walked up. Nikolas was curious what A.J. was doing at the hospital, so A.J. explained that he was there to check on Sam and Danny because A.J. had heard that his nephew was having tests. Nikolas explained that Sam and Danny were asleep, so they were not to be disturbed. A.J. started to leave, but Nikolas called out to A.J. because Nikolas had something to tell A.J. A.J. suspected that Nikolas wanted to remind A.J. that Nikolas was still pining for Elizabeth, which wasn't a surprise to A.J.
"Well, this may come as a surprise to you. I know you slept with Carly," Nikolas told a shocked A.J. A.J. denied the transgression with Carly, but Nikolas revealed that Tracy had given Nikolas a tape of A.J. confessing to the illicit tryst. Nikolas assured A.J. that Nikolas didn't intend to tell Elizabeth about A.J.'s encounter with Carly because Nikolas didn't want Elizabeth to be hurt. A.J. suggested that Nikolas destroy the tape or give it to A.J., but Nikolas refused because Nikolas wanted to hold on to the evidence. Nikolas vowed to share the tape with Elizabeth if A.J. made a wrong move with Elizabeth.
At Metro Court Restaurant, Carly watched in shocked disbelief as Franco grabbed cloth napkins to hand to Sonny with instructions to apply pressure to Olivia's wound. Sonny took the napkins, while Franco called 9-1-1. Moments later, Connie appeared in the doorway then screamed with horror when she realized what had happened. Distraught, Connie wondered who would shoot her cousin.
"What just happened here?" a bewildered Franco asked as he watched Olivia fight for her life. "I-I don't know," Carly stuttered. "Really? I think I do," Franco said when he realized that he had been the likely target.
Moments later, the paramedics arrived and loaded Olivia onto a gurney. Sonny and Connie offered Olivia words of encouragement, but Olivia lost consciousness. Seconds later, Dante arrived. Dante raced to his mother's side when he realized that Olivia had been shot. Dante insisted on going to the hospital with Olivia, but Sonny ordered Dante to stay to find the "son of bitch" who was responsible for the shooting.
Meanwhile, Anna questioned Franco and Carly about the shooting. Anna was surprised when Carly revealed that Carly had been on the terrace with Franco. Dante walked up to ask if Franco or Carly had seen the shooter. Carly shook her head, but Franco admitted that he had caught a glimpse of something that might have been a reflection from a window that faced the terrace. Franco pointed to the window, so Anna asked Carly to provide a key card for the room.
Carly dashed off to fetch the key card. A short time later, Carly stood outside of the room that Shawn had used to carry out the hit that had gone bad. Carly recalled calling Shawn from the Quartermaine mansion to make the arrangements with Shawn to shoot Franco on the terrace. Carly shook the memory away as Anna arrived to take the key card. Moments later, Dante and Anna entered the room.
After Dante determined that the suite was safe, Anna asked Carly to provide the security tapes. Carly agreed, so Anna began to look around the suite. Dante noticed that the sniper had had a clear shot of the terrace from the window. Meanwhile, Anna spotted a spent shell casing on the floor.
Later, Carly called Shawn to demand to know how the hit had gone so terribly wrong. Shawn explained that Olivia had popped up out of nowhere when Shawn had taken the shot. He was desperate to know how Olivia was, so Carly revealed that Olivia had been taken to the hospital. Shawn admitted that he was at the hospital, so Carly ordered Shawn to get an update on Olivia and then report back to Carly. After Carly ended the call, Franco approached her.
Franco was curious who Carly had been talking to. Carly claimed that she had been on the phone with her security team because there had been a shooting in her hotel. "I know. And we both know who is responsible," Franco told her.
At the hospital, Elizabeth was on hand when Olivia arrived in critical condition. Elizabeth led the paramedics to an examination room, but blocked Sonny and Connie from entering. Elizabeth promised to give them an update as soon as she could. Connie confessed to Sonny that Olivia had had a premonition of Sonny being covered in blood, so Olivia had run to the terrace to save Sonny. Sonny tearfully pointed out that the blood that Olivia had seen in the vision had been Olivia's, not Sonny's.
Connie leaned on Sonny as they tried to comfort each other. A short time later, Elizabeth returned with an update. According to Elizabeth, Olivia had been stabilized, but Olivia would require surgery to repair the damage from the gunshot. Sonny wanted to know if Olivia would make it, but Elizabeth gently explained that it was too soon to tell. However, Elizabeth reminded them that Olivia was strong. Sonny and Connie wanted to visit with Olivia before Olivia was taken to surgery, so Elizabeth told them that Olivia could only have one visitor at a time, and the visits needed to be brief.
Connie invited Sonny to visit Olivia first because Connie wanted to let Dante know how Olivia was doing. Moments later, Sonny approached Olivia's bed. Olivia was awake, so Sonny urged her to fight because he liked having her around. He explained that she was strong and uncomplicated, which was exactly what he needed in his life. Sonny leaned down to give Olivia a quick kiss as Olivia looked up at Sonny. Connie, who had watched the exchange from a crack in the curtain, suddenly ducked out of sight, stunned by what she had seen between Sonny and Olivia.
