Sam walked in and found Jason and Robin kissing. Sam exploded and accused Robin of taking advantage of Jason. Sonny took Robin out of the room and told her he knew her and Jason's past. He knew they loved each other, and she was taking the opportunity to save him.
Meanwhile, Sam listened as Jason relived Robin's betrayal. Robin entered to check on Jason, and Sam went outside to talk with Sonny. Robin walked out and told Sam that Jason was calling for her. Sam was relieved to see that Jason was waking up. Tony walked in and examined Jason. Much to their relief, Jason was showing great signs of improvement. They all left so that Robin could run some more tests. When they exited the room, Jason told her he'd always known she would be a brilliant doctor.
Sam returned when Robin was done with the tests. Jason told her he remembered everything since his accident ten years before. Sam was relieved, and they reveled in the moment. Robin and Tony discussed Jason's test results, which were not as good as they'd expected. Robin was afraid that Jason's memory returning still had not solved the problem.
Tracy was furious when she realized that Luke was determined to have Lulu live in the mansion. She didn't want to take care of Lulu when Luke disappeared again. Skye walked in and took Lulu's side. When Tracy stormed out, Skye and Lulu appeared to bond. When Skye left, though, Luke confronted Lulu. He asked her why she was scamming Skye. He'd always thought she was like her mother, but he realized she was a Spencer through and through.
Lulu tried to take offense, but Luke told her he was impressed with her scheme. Lulu started crying just as Skye returned. Skye comforted her and yelled at Luke for hurting his delicate daughter's feelings. Luke laughed when Lulu left at Skye's suggestion. Tracy saw Lulu outside in the foyer, stealing money from Skye's purse. She said if Lulu could steal from her only champion,n then "welcome to the family."
Alcazar took Diego to the police station and turned him in to Mac. Diego was furious that his father could be so hypocritical. When Jesse verbally attacked him, Alcazar stopped him and reminded him of Diego's rights. Diego told him to stop acting like he cared.
Brook Lynn walked into Kelly's and told the gang that Diego was the real stalker. They were surprised when they learned that Alcazar had turned in his own son. Georgie tried to make them all understand that maybe Sage's death had had something to do with it, but Brook Lynn was furious that she would stand up for him. There was no excuse for what he'd done to them.
Maxie went to the police station to confront Diego. When she got there, she learned that his reasoning for stalking them had been to avenge his cousin Sage's death. Jesse tried to stop her from going after Diego, but Diego, who was uncuffed, grabbed a policeman's gun in the confusion and escaped.
Diego went to Kelly's and attempted to hold up the place. He asked Mike for all the money in the cash register and his car keys. When he looked away, Mike grabbed a shot gun and tried to turn the tables on Diego. Diego had other plans, though, and grabbed Georgie to take her hostage.
Carly accused Emily of falling in love with Sonny. Emily tried to explain that she was just caring for the boys, but Carly told her that Courtney had said she had offered to watch the boys months before and had been turned down. Emily admitted she had an ulterior motive. Michael and Morgan reminded her of everything pure and innocent in the world.
Carly told Emily she was going to get him back, but Alcazar walked in and asked who "he" was. Carly told him that Emily had just been leaving, and Emily gathered her stuff and left. Carly told Alcazar that she and Emily had been discussing Jason. She thought that Jason trusted her more, and the key in any relationship was trust. Alcazar told her he didn't think they were still talking about Jason.
Back at Sonny's house, Monica arrived and asked Emily about her sabbatical from medical school. She accused Emily of sleeping with Sonny, especially since she had been living with Sonny for so many months. Emily told her that Sonny had been with Reese the majority of the time that Emily had lived at Sonny's. Monica didn't think that Reese had had anything to do with Emily, but Emily pointed out that Reese had died because of her.
Monica realized that the sabbatical was because of Reese Marshall and not Sonny. Monica left before Sonny arrived at home. When he got home, he told Emily that Jason was okay. She was so relieved, she jumped into his arms.
Emily was thrilled to learn that Jason was doing much better. She hugged Sonny, and they shared an uncomfortable moment being so close to one another. Michael went downstairs and asked for Sonny's help in making a card for Jason. After they left, Emily fell asleep on the couch and dreamed of Sonny arriving at home and kissing her.
Alcazar visited Carly at Rose Lawn. When she realized that he was not going to get her released, she was furious and turned against him. She told him she wanted to divorce him as soon as possible. She said they'd made a complete circle and gone nowhere. The first time he'd met her, she'd been chained to a wall at Ric's house, and he had refused to release her. Then, she was stuck at Rose Lawn, and he wouldn't release her.
Alcazar told Carly that she was obsessed with Sonny just like he was obsessed with her, and it would get her nowhere. Before he left, he told her he would get the divorce started right away. Soon after he left, Courtney went to visit. Carly probed her for information about Emily and Sonny. Carly insinuated that Courtney needed to leave Nikolas alone so he could go back to his marriage with Emily. Courtney assured her there was nothing going on between Emily and Sonny.
Carly wanted to talk to Jason to reassure her, though. Courtney told her to leave Jason alone because he was still in the hospital, recovering. After Courtney left, Carly decided to fake sick in order to get to the hospital. She faked stomach pains and used the light bulb to make the thermometer read higher. She succeeded, and the doctor sent her to the hospital. Courtney found her as she tried to escape her hospital room, and Carly was forced to admit her scheme. Courtney gave in and told her Jason's room number.
Robin walked in and told Jason and Sam that Jason seemed to be improving, but she was still concerned that the test results were not as good as they should have been. Robin assured them both that Jason was on the road to recovery. When she left, Jason suggested that he and Sam get married that night. Sam did want to marry Jason, but she wanted the wedding to be someplace special for both of them. She wanted it to be a memorable experience. Sonny arrived to talk with Jason, so Sam went to question Robin some more. Robin was concerned about a relapse and intended to keeping Jason at the hospital for at least another week.
Meanwhile, Jason was apologizing to Sonny for accusing Sonny of taking advantage of him while he'd had amnesia. Sonny understood, and they started talking about Carly and her craziness. Sonny told him about Carly escaping from Rose Lawn and arriving at the house all done up. Jason laughed but wasn't too surprised that Carly was back to her old ways. Sonny told him that it was over between him and Carly. He would protect her until the day he died because she was the mother of his children. She was just a shell of the former woman he'd loved, though. He had no idea that she was outside Jason's hospital room, listening to their conversation.
Diego took the money from the cash register and Mike's keys, grabbed Georgie, and left. Dillon was beside himself, but the police were there soon due to Maxie's quick thinking. She had called the police while Diego had still been there, so they had heard everything. Mac insisted that Jesse stay out of it, since Mac had taken him off the stalker case weeks before. Jesse thought he knew where Diego was heading, though, and Maxie decided to go with him to the Pizza Shack. Jesse was correct, and Diego took Georgie to the Pizza Shack. He told her he would lock her there and call Dillon when he was far enough away so he could go there and rescue her. Georgie insisted that he turn himself in, though.
Skye tried to convince Luke to be a good parent and leave Tracy. She thought he would be a better parent if he was without Tracy. Luke told her that no matter what happened with Lulu, he was not leaving Tracy and the millions of dollars he owed her.
Meanwhile, in the foyer, Tracy thought Lulu would be a great spy. If she could steal from Skye, the only person who had stood up for her, then she could spy on anyone. As they were arranging a deal of money and a car, Skye and Luke walked out. Lulu converted back into her tirade and acted as if the two women were simply fighting as usual. Skye and Luke bought the act, and Lulu was able to storm off without suspicion. Skye also stormed off with her purse, which was, unbeknownst to her, empty.
Luke went back in the living room to relax with a drink that Alice had made for him, and Alcazar arrived. He was looking for Skye. Luke asked if he and Carly had reconciled, and he assured him that their divorce would be quick. Luke questioned if he was going to pay alimony, and Alcazar told him he would give Carly anything just to get rid of her.
At the hospital, Carly eavesdropped as Sonny explained to Jason why he had no future with his ex-wife, since the love they had shared was gone. Courtney found an agitated Carly on the roof of the hospital. Tipped off by Courtney, Sonny raced to the roof and discovered Carly teetering on the building's edge. Carly tearfully declared to Sonny that she was done with him. Returning to Rose Lawn, Carly told Lainey she was finally ready to work hard at getting well by Christmas.
While hiding out at the Pizza Shack, Georgie tried to convince a distraught Diego to turn himself in, but he felt certain it was too late to go back and make amends. Diego was surprised when Georgie offered to tell her father she had gone with him voluntarily. As Jesse arrived with Maxie and Dillon, however, Diego forced the officer to surrender his weapon and then shoved Georgie free before taking off alone. Georgie ran off to rejoin Diego and handcuffed herself to the startled fugitive.
Shaken by an erotic dream about Sonny, Emily struggled to hide the truth from Liz. Monica asked Sonny to relieve Emily of the obligation her daughter believed she owed him and his kids.
Robin told Sam why Jason needed to spend at least another week under close medical observation. Jason reassured Sam that he wanted only her. Jason took an abrupt turn for the worse. Upon learning that he had no options left, save for risky brain surgery, Jason informed a dismayed Sam and Monica he had decided to spend whatever time he had left living the life he wanted.
Lorenzo assured Luke he couldn't wait to be legally free and clear of Carly. Tracy eyed with open suspicion Luke's sudden husbandly attentions. Tracy again attempted to enlist Lulu as a partner in crime.
At the Quartermaine mansion, Lulu was admiring a watch when Tracy walked in. Lulu quickly closed the jewelry box then slipped the watch into her bag before Tracy noticed it. Tracy reminded Lulu that she had paid Lulu handsomely to find out what Luke was up to. Tracy expected a return on her money, but Lulu insisted that she needed more cash. Luke entered the parlor in time to hear Tracy threaten to send Lulu to boarding school in Siberia if Lulu didn't cooperate.
Luke ordered Tracy to leave his daughter alone. Lulu covered for Tracy by explaining that Tracy was upset because Lulu had borrowed one of Edward's cars without permission. Luke didn't seem concerned, so Tracy pointed out that Lulu could have had an accident. Luke was confident that the Quartermaines could afford the insurance on the vehicle. After Lulu left, Luke made it clear to Tracy that Lulu would not be sent to a boarding school. However, he offered to move out with Lulu if Tracy agreed to a divorce and to cut him a check for fifteen million dollars.
Tracy vowed to find out what Luke was up to; she warned him that she would snap him like an "old twig" if he crossed her. Luke decided to call Lorenzo after Tracy stormed out. Lorenzo was unavailable, so Luke left a message explaining that they needed to discuss Lorenzo's impending divorce and how it related to Lorenzo's ELQ stock. Next, Luke called Lainey Winters to find out if he could visit his niece. Lainey informed Luke that he was not allowed to see Carly, so he would have to check back in a month to see if anything had changed.
At the hospital, Lulu dropped by to visit her brother. Lucky became suspicious when she gave him an expensive watch. Lulu explained that Tracy had given her a generous allowance, so she had decided to buy her brother a nice present. Lucky wondered how things were going at the Quartermaine mansion. Lulu confessed that it wasn't as bad as she had feared.
Later, Luke arrived for a visit with Lucky. Lucky revealed that he would be released from the hospital the following day. Lucky then mentioned that Lulu had stopped by. Luke suspected that Lulu was up to something, so he questioned Lucky about it, but Lucky didn't know anything. Luke feared that Lulu was more of a Spencer than he had thought.
Courtney was stunned when she opened her apartment door and found Nikolas standing on her doorstep, flanked by two burly bodyguards. The bodyguards explained that Jax had hired them. Courtney was not pleased. She ordered the men to leave her apartment then invited Nikolas inside. Courtney's anger turned to concern when she realized that Nikolas' arm was in a cast and sling.
Nikolas assured Courtney that he was fine; he attributed the injury to a scuffle with Helena while he'd had his grandmother committed to an asylum in Europe. Nikolas assured Courtney that Helena was no longer a threat to Courtney or the baby.
At the hospital, Liz noticed Jax talking to Dr. Meadows. After Dr. Meadows walked away, Liz approached Jax to make certain that Courtney and the baby were okay. Jax explained that he was just being cautious because he didn't want to lose another child. Jax then admitted that he didn't think that Courtney and Nikolas were truly in love or soul mates. Liz reminded Jax that it was Courtney's call to make, not his.
However, Liz admitted that she couldn't believe that it was Nikolas and Emily's one-year wedding anniversary. Jax was surprised by the news; he suggested that it was fate urging them to give Nikolas and Emily a push toward reconciliation. Jax tried to enlist Liz's help in setting up Nikolas and Emily, but Liz thought that Jax should stay out of it. Their talk was cut short when Courtney suddenly appeared. Courtney informed Jax that she didn't appreciate the bodyguards that he had hired.
Liz excused herself while Courtney and Jax continued to argue. Courtney resented Jax's controlling ways. She made it clear that it was unnecessary because Helena had been confined to a sanitarium. After Courtney left, Jax quickly tracked down Liz to persuade her to help his cause. A short time later, Courtney returned to her apartment, where Nikolas was waiting.
Courtney apologized for leaving, but she explained that she had wanted to let Jax know that Helena had been dealt with. Courtney sensed that something was troubling Nikolas. Nikolas admitted that it was the one-year anniversary of his marriage to Emily. Courtney assured Nikolas that she would understand if he wanted to be alone. Moments later, Nikolas' phone rang.
Liz explained to Nikolas that she wanted to take Cameron to Wyndemere to pick some holly. Cameron had been eager to see Nikolas, so Liz wanted to make certain that Nikolas would be there. Nikolas promised to wait for them in the courtyard then ended the call.
At the hospital, Emily approached the nurses' station to talk to Liz about returning to medical school. Liz was happy for her friend, but she changed the subject by asking Emily for a favor. Liz explained to Emily that Cameron had left his favorite toy behind at Wyndemere while they had been picking holly, so she wondered if Emily would go to Spoon Island to fetch the toy.
On the piers, Jax met with Coleman. Jax wanted Coleman to go to Wyndemere when Emily and Nikolas met later that evening. A short time later, Emily arrived at Wyndemere and found Nikolas standing near the fountain in the courtyard. They both realized that Liz had set them up. Emily and Nikolas acknowledged the significance of the date as Coleman lurked nearby in the bushes with a camera in hand.
Jax stopped by Courtney's apartment to apologize for assigning bodyguards to watch over her. He admitted that he had gone overboard. Courtney argued that he always realized it after the fact. Jax conceded that Nikolas would never intentionally put Courtney or the baby in harm's way. Courtney appreciated Jax's comment. Jax feigned surprise when he pretended to notice that Nikolas wasn't there.
At the police station, Detective Cruz Rodriguez hauled Lorenzo in for trying to flee to Buenos Aires. Lorenzo insisted that it had been a business trip, but Mac and Cruz didn't believe him. Mac threatened to have Lorenzo charged with aiding and abetting a kidnapping if Lorenzo didn't cooperate. Lorenzo had no idea what Mac was talking about, so Dillon stepped forward to explain that Diego had escaped the police station by taking Georgie hostage. Lorenzo was surprised by the news but agreed to cooperate because he didn't want his son harmed when the police caught up to Diego.
Diego took Georgie to a cabin in the woods. Diego explained that his father had recently purchased the cabin so that he could spend some time with Diego as they bonded as father and son. Diego led Georgie to the fireplace, where he picked up an axe. Georgie drew back in fear, but Diego explained that he only intended to use the axe to break the handcuffs that bound them together. Diego revealed that he planned to set Georgie free, contact the police to let them know where they could find her, and then flee the country.
Georgie tried to convince Diego to turn himself in, but Diego refused to consider it. Georgie refused to give up, which made Diego wonder why she was so determined to help him after everything that he had done to her and others. Georgie conceded that she despised Diego for drugging and violating everyone who had hurt Sage. She didn't think there had been any excuse to justify what Diego had done, especially since he hadn't even known his cousin. However, Diego had been her friend once, so she wanted to help him.
Moments later, Mac called out over a bullhorn to warn Diego that the cabin was surrounded by the police. Mac urged Diego to give himself up. Georgie promised to stand by Diego's side, so he agreed to surrender. Georgie yelled out to Mac that Diego was unarmed and ready to walk out. As soon as Diego left the cabin, the police swarmed on him then quickly placed him under arrest.
A short time later, Diego was led to the interrogation room at the police station, where he was left alone with Lorenzo. Lorenzo felt that he had failed his son, so he was determined to stand by Diego's side. Lorenzo realized that he had no right to expect a perfect son when Lorenzo was an imperfect man. Lorenzo wanted to be the father that Diego deserved. Diego was moved to tears as he walked into his father's outstretched arms. Lorenzo held his son tightly while Diego wept.
Jason and Sam returned to the Hawaiian beach house where they had once stayed. It was just as they had remembered. Jason glanced around while Sam quietly wandered to the window to look out over the ocean. He approached her when he noticed that she was weeping. Jason worried that perhaps they shouldn't have returned to Hawaii.
Sam wiped away the tears as she pulled away from Jason. She realized that it was useless to cry over something that couldn't be changed, so she was determined to enjoy every moment that they had together. Jason smiled as he leaned down to kiss Sam. Later, Sam entered the living room with a tackle box that she had found. She announced that they were going to spend the day fishing.
Jason immediately grumbled, so Sam leaned down to pull off his boots and socks. She explained that walking barefoot in the sand was fun and sexy. Jason suggested that they simply shoot the fish instead of trying to catch them. Sam accused Jason of being afraid that she would catch more fish. Eventually, Sam managed to drag Jason to the boat.
Later, Sam gloated because she had caught their dinner while Jason hadn't caught anything. Her joy quickly turned to suspicion when she realized that it didn't bother Jason. Sam accused him of somehow rigging the fishing contest. Jason denied it, but Sam didn't believe him. They laughed as they entered the cottage then tumbled to the floor in a passionate embrace.
A short time later, Jason wondered what was next on Sam's wish list. Sam made a couple of funny suggestions, which Jason quickly nixed. He clarified that he was interested to know what she truly wanted. Sam admitted that she would like to try to make a baby with him. Jason didn't think that he could leave Sam and their baby. He insisted that it wouldn't be fair to their child. Sam argued that it was inevitable that he would leave her because of his illness.
Sam was certain that after Jason was gone, she would be cold, empty, sad, and angry. However, a child would be her love, heart, and her constant reminder of him and what they had shared. Sam had accepted their fate, but she didn't want Jason to leave her alone. Jason looked deep into Sam's eyes, took her hand in his, and led her to the bedroom.
Liz confided to Lucky how she'd helped arrange a "chance" meeting for his brother and Emily at Jax's request. Meanwhile, on Spoon Island, Emily and Nikolas indulged in a nostalgic walk down memory lane. Though Lucky accused Jax of manipulating the people in his orbit, Liz reminded her husband how Emily and Nikolas deserved a chance to reclaim their love. Acting on instructions from Jax, Coleman secretly photographed Emily's encounter with Nikolas. Liz suspected Emily of protesting too much when she insisted no old flame had been rekindled that night.
Unwilling to accept the inevitability of Jason's demise, Sonny pressed Robin to find his friend some help. Sam had a nightmare about discovering Jason dead. Sam tearfully admitted to her lover how she still couldn't wrap her head around the fact that she was going to lose him. Sonny decided to fly to Hawaii in hopes of persuading Jason to undergo the brain surgery that could save his life. Tony told Robin about the one neurosurgeon who might be able to give Jason the miracle he needed. Sonny implored an emotional Jason not to give up without a fight. Robin went in search of Noah Drake and was surprised to find the once-esteemed doctor facedown in a seedy bar. Sonny promised Jason he wouldn't let him exist in a vegetative state if the surgery should fail.
Carly told Dr. Kim how determined she was to regain her focus and get well. Later, Carly was perplexed to see Luke masquerading as a Viennese psychiatrist interested in "consulting" on her case. Luke advised his niece to press Alcazar for an alimony payment in the form of his ELQ stock. Lorenzo agreed to sign his ELQ shares over to Carly, who then proceeded to double-cross her sputtering uncle.
