Lucky then issued a warning to Liz to be very careful of Zander, but Liz told Lucky that being rude to Zander is not a good idea either.

Sonny returned to his penthouse to find Jason visiting with Michael and Carly. Later, Sonny and Jason discussed the death of the baby and Sonny told Jason that Carly helped him through a difficult time.

Hannah arrived at Roy's apartment, only to discover that he was not there. Mac arrived shortly after and questioned Hannah about her father's whereabouts. Hannah made it perfectly clear to Mac that her father is not doing anything illegal and that Mac is on the verge of violating her father's rights.

Sonny told Jason his side of the story about his arrest and how Carly was involved. Sonny shared with Jason that he could never trust Carly again. Sonny then caught Carly eavesdropping on his and Jason's conversation.

Roy called Lucky at Kelly's and asked him to stop by Luke's.

AJ interrupted Mac and Hannah's conversation and pretended to be very intoxicated. Once Mac left, AJ told Hannah that he was only faking to be drunk to help her out of a sticky situation.

As Carly, Sonny and Jason finished a toast, Alexis came over and was surprised to see Jason. Jason then shared with Alexis how he saw her poster at a Texas bar and she continued to get teased. Alexis shared her fears that the "Eddie's Angel" saga will harm Sonny's defense.

AJ kindly told Hannah that he would love to be her scapegoat for anything. AJ told Hannah that her career might be suffering because of who her father is.

Nikolas took Gia back to Kelly's to search for her earring, but Gia refused to go inside when she spotted Taggert.

Mac told Taggert about AJ and Hannah being together at Roy's apartment.

Lucky met with Roy, who had a message for him from Luke. Lucky did not want to hear the message and then continued to discredit his father. Roy and Lucky bumped heads about Luke and Roy told Lucky that he had no right to be mad at Luke for things Luke did to Laura or him. Roy pointed out that Luke has never harmed Lucky and has always been the best father to him. Lucky told Roy that Luke did not deserve his friendship.

Nikolas kissed Gia when Taggert was leaving Kelly's so that he would not see Gia. Gia was slightly offended by the kiss and then went home.

Jason turned down Sonny and Carly's invite to sleep over and heads to Jake's for the night.

A delighted Stefan is thrilled that his plan to get Jax away from Chloe is turning out so successfully.

Alexis insisted that Sonny marries Carly to save himself and she was very upset when he told her that he did not tell Carly about her plan.

Liz and Emily were having a heart to heart talk about the goings on in their lives. They were sharing the same bad feeling about being drugged and losing an entire night of their lives. Emily commented on how it was like being robbed of something, just not being able to remember anything at all about that one night. Next Emily brought up Lucky and asked Liz about the change in her face. Liz said that Lucky had been wonderful to her on that night and that she had awoken in his arms (so special). But nothing had changed. Emily begged to differ she insisted that Lucky still loved Liz. Liz corrected her and said that Lucky cared about her and her well being, but he no longer loved her. Then Emily took the opportunity to compare Lucky's situation to theirs (losing time). Maybe Lucky feels like something died inside of him because he feels like he lost time. The Liz asked Emily if she knew something about Lucky that she did not. Emily carefully covered by stating that she just presumed that Lucky has this same feeling of loss. Liz asked Emily about Juan. Emily said that Juan had invited her to Eddie Mane's concert tonight but she had refused. Emily felt that she could no longer trust Juan so what would be the point. Liz said go and enjoy, because if it was her and Lucky asked her out she would jump at the opportunity.

During rehearsal for the Eddie Mane Concert, Ned was pushing his band too hard as usual. He was also stressed because Alexis had not shown up at the concert yet. Finally Nikolas got him to break and save his energy for tonight. As Ned left the stage he informed Juan that he would be his opening act for tonight. Juan was freaked out. He could barely speak. Ned told him he would be fine and that his song, Heart and Soul, was ready. Juan continued to decline his offer and said no. Moments later Nikolas spotted Gia at the door trying to scheme her way backstage. Nikolas went over to security and gave Gia a backstage pass. She immediately wanted to meet Eddie Mane, but Nikolas informed her that it was a really bad time. He told her to stay put and definitely out of the way. Then Emily shows up and asked Nikolas to put her in a hidden spot where no one could see her. However, Nikolas the matchmaker already had a plan in mind to have Juan's eyes spot Emily. After Juan spotted Emily, he went to find Ned quickly to inform him that he was willing after all to open the concert for him. Juan sang his Heart and Soul song to a cheering crowd while Emily stood right off stage singing the words to herself. Alexis, Gia, and Nikolas were off stage too enjoying the show. Eddie Mane went on afterwards and played his heart out. After the show Ned runs into Alexis' arms only to be stunned that the press and camera crew had already discovered Alexis' disguise and they were all set to talk to Eddie's Angel.

At General Hospital a frantic Monica runs out of the hospital calling Alan to let him know that her temperature is up and now is the time, meet her at home pronto. Strangely enough Alan arrived home first and asks Reginald to bring champagne up to his room. Monica arrived shortly after and ran up to the room telling Reginald that she and Alan are not to be disturbed. Of course all this running around At the Quartermaines' had Edward upset, especially since he is against his son having another child. Lila however instructed Edward to leave them alone because Alan has to make his own decisions. Besides, Lila has plans to celebrate with Alan and Monica regardless of the outcome of their attempt to conceive a child this late in the game.

Stefan celebrated his victory in capturing Chloe and gloated about stealing her right from under his mother's arms. Chloe meanwhile lay asleep in a suite where Stefan was keeping her. While back at General Hospital, Tony became worried about Chloe not keeping her radiation appointment. He was puzzled by Jax and Chloe departure when they were so excited before to start this treatment.

Tammy was stressed out about the fact that she could not find Mike anywhere. She was talking to Liz when Mike arrived at Kelly's. Tammy rapidly went over to him and asked him what was going on with him. Mike was bummed because he feels guilty for putting his son in the position to go to jail. Mike had also tried to see Sonny, but Johnny refused him entry into the penthouse. This pushed Mike further into devastation. Tammy tried to lighten his spirits by telling him that he has to give Sonny some time and put a little distance between them. But Mike said he could not leave things the way they are and refused to let Sonny go to prison for his mistake. Mac entered Kelly's to pick up his take out order and when Mike spotted him he asked if he could talk to Mac. Mike confessed his whole story and told Mac that he alone was responsible for Sonny's predicament. Sonny was totally innocent in this matter. Sorel set Mike up to get to Sonny. Mac told Mike that his story was irrelevant to the case because Sonny was caught on tape. Mac said his hands are tied and left with his order. Tammy went rushing back to Mike to comfort him. Mike told her he wanted to be alone and he would talk to her later.

Taggert surprised Hannah with a romantic getaway picnic in a private beach area. She was so thrilled with the location and being close to nature. They started to kiss. Hannah and Taggert were going along quite nicely when they kept hearing loud boat sound repeatedly. Then all of a sudden they noticed that the driver of the boat swamped his boat. They both ran for the shore. To their surprise, the driver was AJ Quartermaine (of course, who else would it be?). You know AJ, the party crasher he was just ecstatic to have broken up their romantic lunch on the beach. AJ then tries to get Hannah to give him first aid, then she hands him off to Taggert and he miraculously recovers. Then both Taggert and Hannah give him the old heave hoe; in no uncertain terms they asked AJ to leave and hit the highway home. At first AJ thought that they were kidding, but they weren't. Before AJ made his way out, Taggert informed him that the most reasonable thing that AJ could do would be to accept the fact that he and Hannah are together as a couple. Later, as Hannah and Taggert sit in front of a fire, Hannah apologizes to Taggert for letting AJ get into her life. She only meant to help him to get over Carly and stopped drinking. She promised not to let AJ come between them and then Taggert promised to be wise enough not to let AJ get to him

Emily encourages Lucky to express his feelings to the girl he loves even though he still can't remember much of what transpired during his absence from Port Charles.
