Carrie tells Austin that she believes they can get their love back. Austin is unhappy with her for pushing the idea of counseling on him when he knows she is still in love with Mike. Carrie says that she never would have slept with Mike if he hadn't pushed her away. She says this all started when Sami lied to him about Lucas hitting Will. Carrie says Sami lied so she could draw him into her web and they could live a happy little life together. Austin tells Carrie that she's still doing it, she is still blaming Sami for all their problems, and her affair! Carrie says that it was not an affair, it only happened once. Austin says that still doesn't make it right. Carrie knows she hurt him and asks if they can't try to fix the mistakes she's made. Austin says that he will agree to counseling, but she has to quit her job. Carrie says the hospital needs her right now, and her relationship with Mike is only professional.

Lucas tells her that she doesn't have a choice, he has soul custody of Will. Sami says that is because he coerced Nicole into marriage, that is the only reason he married her, he would do anything to get Will. Lucas says she would too, and asks Sami to admit that he never hit Will.
Sami says he almost killed Will by kidnapping him while driving drunk, but Lucas says this is all her fault for lying, she started the ball rolling. Sami says she and Austin will challenge custody, but Lucas says he has everything on his side. Sami gives him a look, and Lucas sees that the old Sami is back. Lucas tells Sami that Austin is just her friend, he doesn't love her and never will. Lucas had hoped her near death experience would have changed her. Sami says it has, and he has no idea what it is like to look death in the face. Lucas says he hopes he doesn't until he's an old man, and his offer to share custody with her still stands. Lucas asks her if she wants peace, or war?
Sami says she will not rest until she gets her son back. Lucas says he is sorry he ever saved her life, and he should have listened to his mom. Sami tells him that he confessed because of his guilty conscious. Chelsea brings Will down and Lucas and says he's leaving.
