Maxie refuses to believe it, but Mac thinks it is her grief talking. After the police leave, Jason meets Spinelli outside Kelly's. Jason is skeptical because he got a call from Coop moments before his death. "What," he asks rhetorically, "Could a guy who is about to kill himself want to tell me?"

Nikolas and Emily reenact what happened and Nikolas seems to have remembered something. He yells at her like he did that night. Jason comes running over to him and asks him what is going on. Nikolas tells him that he was trying to go over in his head what happened that night but couldn't remember anything about who may have killed Emily.

Sonny meets a mysterious dark-haired woman at the bar when he orders a drink. He tells the bartender he will pay for whatever the "lady" is having. She buys him a drink after he buys her a drink. She writes a note on a napkin and has the bartender deliver it to Sonny. Sonny reads the message that says, "I'm not a lady." Sonny leaves the bar but comes back later and has the bartender hand her a message as well as a copy of his room key. The message says, "I'm not a gentleman."

He gets Sam her coat, tells her to leave, and says he hopes he never sees her again as long as he lives.
Sam stands on the docks and gets a text message. She realizes it is from the text message killer and immediately calls Lucky. She tries to explain that she got a text message, but he doesn't want to hear it. He says he's not interested in seeing some text message that she had a friend send to her. He's done with her. He hangs up when Lulu comes in. Sam gets another text message. It says, "I see you. Do you see me?" She starts to run off the docks, but she runs into the killer. They fight and Sam manages to get away. She runs to the nearest house, but no one is home. The text message killer comes after her again, but Sam manages to fight him off again. He rolls down the steps and lies motionless. Sam runs over to him and starts to take his mask off, but he wakes up, and she tries to escape again.
Lucky welcomes Lulu into the house. She says that she understands the text message killer thing is supposed to be over, but she's still too freaked out to stay at Wyndemere. She won't go back to the Quartermaine mansion right now, and she's definitely not going to be staying with Logan. She realizes that Lucky isn't listening. She asks him if it's about Sam, Liz, or Jake. He says it's all of the above. They talk about how their family isn't doing very well in the love department.
