Gia told Zander about her plan to take Scott down from the inside by getting an internship in his office. Zander could not believe that Gia planned to tell Taggert about her plan and warned her that he would not approve. Taggert arrived, and as Zander predicted he demanded that Gia abandon her plan. Gia stood her ground and maintained that it was wrong to stand by and do nothing while a corrupt D.A. ran the town.

Carly returned and, learning that Sonny had left alone, ordered his men to find him.

Sonny met Ned on the docks. He threatened Ned's life unless Ned were to tell him who was financing Faith's plan. Ned told him he had no idea and wouldn't tell him even if he did.

Taggert arrested Sonny after Ned agreed to press charges. Scott called Carly and told her that Sonny was in big trouble.

Jason told Courtney how much she meant to him and offered to let her redecorate the penthouse to make it more comfortable for her. Carly burst in and begged Jason and Courtney to help her in a plan to help Sonny. Jason refused, telling Carly that her plans always end disastrously, but Carly insisted that Sonny was mishandling business and trusting Ric to help with the Faith situation. Reluctantly, Jason agreed to participate. Carly told Courtney that she would be involved, too.

Outside of Kelly's, Ric warned Faith. When Liz walked up, Ric pretended to be delivering a message from Sonny. Faith went inside and sat at a table. Liz and Ric got their own table and flirted. Suddenly Courtney and Jason burst through the door, apparently fighting. Faith, Ric, and Liz all observed while Courtney and Jason yelled at each other. Courtney told Jason that she had been wrong about him and never wanted to see him again. Jason kicked a table before storming out.

She was forced to hide when AJ, Skye, and Edward came in and argued in the entrance. As soon as they left, Alexis snuck up the stairs. AJ, Skye, and Edward were startled by Alexis's scream.

Ric arrived and requested to see Sonny, but Taggert stalled him. Ric went to speak to Ned instead. Carly stormed in and demanded to be let into the interrogation room to see Sonny. Taggert grabbed her by the arm to stop her. An enraged Sonny ordered Taggert to never touch Carly again. Amidst all the shouting, Ric appeared at the door and told Taggert to release Sonny, that Ned was dropping the charges. Ned confirmed it, conceded that because he had attacked Sonny a while back, it would not be difficult for Ric to make it look as if Ned had provoked him again. Ned feared that involvement in an assault case might jeopardize his chances of regaining custody of Kristina. Disgusted, Taggert unruffled Sonny and set him free. Sonny got a call from Jason telling him to meet him on the docks. Sonny left before Carly had a chance to tell him about the plan.

Looking for Sonny, Carly ran into Courtney and Michael at the park. Carly told Courtney that however difficult Sonny could be, that he was even harder on himself.

Carly went to him and walked him to safety but fell in herself just before making it to dry ground.

Jason pressed Faith to tell him who her silent partner was. Faith told Jason to prove their new alliance by killing Sonny, promising that she would arrange a meeting with her partner and Jason. Jason met Sonny at the docks. Sonny was shocked and angry to see Faith there, too. Jason pulled a gun on Sonny, and they argued for some time. When Faith impatiently pulled out a gun to shoot Sonny herself, Jason turned the gun on her and demanded the name of her partner. Ric approached and shot Faith from the alley. Jason ran off in search of the shooter while Sonny asked a wounded Faith to tell him who had shot her.

Cameron tells her he will help her anyway he can but only if she stays in town and fights the Quartermaines. They leave Wyndemere and she reluctantly hands the baby over to him and agrees to go to the hospital for another session with him later. She gets to the hospital and checks in at the nurses station.

He denies knowing where she is and that he is concerned for her as well as the baby, who he reminds them is his cousin. Jax doesn't buy it but realizes he is wasting his time. They head back to the mansion. Jax tells Skye that Alexis and the baby are probably on a private jet headed to Australia for all he knows and that he is probably a little relieved by that since he feels the baby is probably better off with Alexis than being raised by the Quartermaines. Skye tells him she isn't so sure it is the best thing since she always dreamed of growing up in a mansion like this.

Courtney visits Carly. Carly thanks her for saving her life and the baby's life like she did.

Sonny voices his displeasure that Jason is still with Courtney but doesn't tell him he can't be with her but that he needs to know that if anything happens to Courtney it will be on his head. Jason tells him he can handle taking care of Courtney and the family for him as well. Sonny isn't so sure he can but he gives him the chance to prove it some day. Meanwhile, Ric worries when Liz shows up at the docks as he is talking on his cell phone with Faith. He realizes she didn't hear his conversation where he told Faith they need to compromise Jason in order to destroy Sonny. They share an intimate moment on the docks as they make plans to go to some art museum. Ric goes to see Faith in person at her hospital room. She is a leery of him coming to see him since she knows he shot her on the docks. He denies he shot her and that he came to discuss their plan to take down Sonny. He informs her that Jason set her up on the docks that day and that he is back working for Sonny again. She tells him they should just kill Sonny once and for all. Ric is against that plan and tells her it is better if they compromise Jason somehow and get Sonny to go against him again and then they can destroy him and his family. Sonny and Jason go to Carly's room. Sonny thanks Courtney for saving Carly and their baby's life. He also tells her that he won't stop her from being with Jason, even if he prefer that she go away to college at his expense. She tells him she wants to be with Jason. Jason and Carly run into Ric out in the hallway later. Ric tells them he came to see Carly. Courtney tells him Carly doesn't want to see him right now and that she is with Sonny in her room. Ric makes a remark about them all getting what they want and he leaves with a smug look on his face. Courtney tells Jason that she doesn't like Ric and that he gives her the creeps. Jason concurs that he is up to something and it isn't good. Sonny and Carly discuss the baby. As Sonny is hugging Carly, he sees Faith looking into Carly's room through the window in her door.

Georgie tells her that Kyle put up something about her in some teen chat room from the high school. Maxie is feeling really low but Georgie snaps at her that she should have known this would happen when she went upstairs with Kyle at his party. She asks her if she is still upset with Lucas. Maxie tells her she is angry at herself not at him. Lucas shows up to see how they are doing and pulls up a chair at their table. Kyle and his friends show up and see Maxie sitting at a table. They approach her and make crude remarks about her being a slut. Lucas surprises them when he lies and tells Kyle that she is pregnant and that he will have to say goodbye to going to college if he plans on fathering her baby and marrying her. Kyle denies being the father and that he never touched her. This admission helps to prove to Kyle's friends that Maxie never slept with him that night. Kyle tells her to stay away from him and leave him alone and accuses Lucas of being the real baby's father. Maxie is a little mortified that everyone now is going to think she is pregnant but is happy that Lucas helped get Kyle and his friends off her back. Lucky and Emily witness the whole thing and Lucky almost steps in but realizes that Lucas has it under control. Georgie gets Maxie to laugh when she tells her that everyone will think she is pregnant but at least she won't be "pregnant" with Kyle's baby.
