Once he's uncovered, they're both relieved to know that Lucky is still alive. Luke realizes that Lucky isn't breathing, though.
Courtney, Sonny, and Nikolas try to clear the passage to get to Lucky and Liz. Sonny realizes that Reese is in pain, so he asks her to sit with Alexis instead of helping to remove debris. Reese is resistant at first, but decides to go sit with Alexis when Ric goes to help Emily find medical supplies. Before Ric leaves, Alexis and Ric talk about their relationship. Alexis finds it funny that they can only get along when their lives are a chaotic mess. Ric tells her they both need excitement, which is why they thrive on chaos. Alexis tells him she needs him to come back, though, and they kiss before he rushes off to help Emily. Reese tries to sit with Alexis, but Alexis assures her she doesn't need her company. Reese tells her to stop being stubborn and allow her to help for her baby's sake. While they talk, Ric asks Emily how Alexis is doing. Emily hesitates and Ric asks her what's wrong. Before she can answer, Nikolas tells her Alexis needs her. The contractions are closer together now and Alexis is dilated to 6. Ric asks her what they would do for Alexis at a hospital, and Emily tells them they would do a c-section.
Jason cuts the rope Luke tied to him and rushes off to find Sam. He finds Carly, though he doesn't recognize her.

Jason hesitates but runs off to find Sam. He finds her not too far away, buried in the ruble. He uncovers her and she wakes up. He helps her stand up, despite her protests that he's not in the hospital. They go back to try to help Robin get out from under the seats that have her pinned inside the train car. Meanwhile, Max tries to stop Carly from heading out of the ruble, but he's gunned down by Manny. Carly grabs a pipe and asks if she's who he's been looking for.
Skye runs to the scene of the accident and finds Alcazar already there. When she asks what he's doing there, she realizes something is up. She puts two and two together and discovers that Carly was on the train coming into Port Charles. She realizes that Alcazar thinks Carly caused the accident. Tracy stops any further conversation by accusing Skye of allowing Luke to go in after Lucky. She thinks that Skye would rather see Luke dead than with any other woman. Skye denies this and tells her he was only going in after his son. Jax comes stumbling out of the tumble and receives oxygen while the paramedics check him over. Mac realizes he's determined to go back in and wants to stop him. Jesse thinks it's a good idea to let Jax go back in, though, because he knows more than the rescuers do at this point. Jesse promises Mac that he will do everything possible to save Robin. Alcazar agrees to go help Jax, but before they rush off, Skye hugs Alcazar in defeat of his love for Carly. Tracy watches the exchange and asks Skye whose husband she is wringing her hands over, hers or Carly's? Much to Skye's disbelief, Lulu convinced Georgie to take her back to the scene after she dropped her off at home. Lulu told Georgie she was going to help her Aunt Bobbie, but Georgie realizes it's all a scam once they arrive. They run into Jesse, who tells them that Lucky is hurt. George tries to convince her to stay out of the way, but Lulu says she's been staying out of the way all her life.

Liz performed CPR until Lucky started breathing on his own again. Lucky woke up as Luke and Liz were arguing. Luke wanted to get Lucky out of the tunnel, but Liz thought it was too dangerous to move him. Lucky spoke up and told them that his father was right. Nikolas went to say goodbye to Alexis, Emily, and Courtney, while Liz and Luke prepared Lucky for the move. When Nikolas returned, he and Luke carried Lucky toward the entrance Luke had entered through. Nikolas and Luke put down Lucky so they could dig through the additional rubble that blocked the entrance.
As they continued to dig, they head voices. Alcazar and Jax were on the other side of the blocked entrance. They all heard each other and dug a hole large enough for Luke and Nikolas to pass Lucky through. Jax and Alcazar got Lucky through, but the hole collapsed as Luke tried to crawl through. He made it, through, and they rushed Lucky to triage in order to get him to the hospital as soon as possible.
Back in the hole, Nikolas and Liz realized they were trapped. As Liz broke down, both she and Nikolas started to cough. Liz passed out, and Nikolas realized there were gasses in the chamber that were affecting them. Before he could find a way out, he collapsed with Liz in his arms.
Emily told Ric and Alexis that if the contractions didn't stop, both Alexis and the baby could be at risk. Emily found an asthma drug that she thought might help slow the contractions down. She couldn't give advice, but she could offer the drug to Alexis so that Alexis could make the decision. After another strong contraction, Alexis decided to take the medicine. While they waited for the drug to work, Ric apologized to Alexis, and she admitted she'd always wanted him with her when the baby was born. The drug did slow the contractions down, but Alexis continued to dilate. The baby was stuck high up in the pelvis, so if they didn't get Alexis out soon, the baby could still die.
Carly was able to get a good swing at Manny, but she didn't get very far before he grabbed her again. She saw Max's gun lying next to him and made an attempt to grab it. Manny saw what she was doing and tried to keep her away from the gun. Another segment of the tunnel caved in, and Carly grabbed a rock and hit Manny on the head. She ran back to the train car and hid behind a seat. Manny went looking for her but couldn't find her until she knocked over a briefcase in an attempt to get another gun. Carly grabbed the gun and ran back behind the seat, but Manny was already heading her way.
Sam and Jason finally managed to free Robin. As they left the train car, Robin remembered that her medicines and research were still on the train. Jason headed back to get them, but the train exploded before Jason could find the briefcase. He jumped out of the exploding train and knocked himself unconscious. When he woke up, Robin assessed Jason's condition and realized it was much more serious than she had thought.
Jason still thought it was no big deal, but Sam erupted at him. Jason asked her what was bothering her besides the train wreck, and she explained that the day would have been their little girl's first birthday. They all agreed that the best way to help Jason was to find a way out. The three of them found a path up on a ledge, but as they tried to walk across, Robin slipped and fell. She clung to the side of the ledge, while Jason begged her to grab hold of his hand.
Lulu witnessed Skye and Tracy in a heated debate over her father and interrupted, telling them both that her father would never love either one of them. Skye was stunned into silence over Lulu's outburst, but Tracy took the opportunity to tell Lulu she was a selfish, spoiled brat. Skye called Dillon and asked him to rescue Lulu from his mother. Dillon went over and separated the two women then left with Lulu. They bonded over the fact that they both only had one parent and that the one parent was lacking the necessary parenting skills.
When Lulu saw Luke and Lucky emerging from the tunnel, she rushed over to Lucky's side. She realized that Luke had left Nikolas behind, and she started screaming at Luke again. Meanwhile, Georgie vented to Dillon at how selfish Lulu was. Dillon stood up for Lulu, though.

Robin is hanging from the ledge. Jason pulled her to safety. Robin wanted Jason to rest and not to stain himself, and Sam agreed with Robin. Jason claimed he couldn't rest because there might be another cave-in. Robin told Jason that he hasn't changed -- he still doesn't listen to people. Jason admitted that he was having another headache, but wanted them to keep moving. Jason found a St. Christopher metal in the tunnels. It caused him to have a flash back about Carly. In the flashback he remembered giving her a St. Christopher necklace in the hospital after she had Michael. The medal was to protect her and help to remind her of Michael so that she could come back to him.

Jax is mad a Mac for not being more aggressive in the search and not wanting him there. Jax told Mac that he would find his own way in. Jax found Liz and Nikolas.

Sonny and Reese were trapped on both sides of the tunnel they were in. Sonny kept digging while Reese was concerned about Sonny's claustrophobia. Reese asked Sonny if he was afraid of dying. Sonny said that he was not dying here... no one was dying here. Sonny started to see light, they continued to dig. Reese was hiding the fact that she was sicker than she originally thought. Reese coughed up blood. Sonny and Reese ended up in the same train car as Carly. Carly was looking for her St. Christopher necklace. Carly hid when she heard voices. She overheard Sonny telling Reese that she (Carly) may never get out of Rose Lawn. Carly had a flashback of when Sonny left her at Rose Lawn and gave her the charm bracelet. Sonny and Reese heard a noise and demanded that whoever it was, stand up.
Alexis asked Emily if a C-section would save her baby. Emily told her yes. Alexis told Emily that she must save the baby. Alexis' contractions grew stronger. She wanted a C-section.

Alexis told Ric that she is going to die. Ric told her that she won't die. Alexis made Ric promise to take care of her children if she does die. Ric made the promise. Robin and Emily talked about what was about to happen. Robin told Emily that they could get both Alexis and the baby out alive. Alexis is out. They began the C-section. Robin told Ric not to panic, to stay calm and to follow all of her directions.
Jason and Sam left the others. Jason didn't want Sam to see the baby being born. Sam wondered if they should have told them about Manny. Jason didn't think that was necessary because Manny wasn't after any of them. Jason told Sam that he remembered giving a St. Christopher metal, like the one he found, to Carly. As they continued to walk, Jason got a headache and falls from the cliff. Sam jumped down and held him.
Jax and Nikolas find Courtney collapsed on the floor of the tunnels. Courtney woke up. Jax is mad that she didn't stay with the rest of the others and risked herself and the baby.
