Carly told Jason she was glad to help Sonny but she's tempted to go back to him. She asked Jason to stop her, but he replied he's never been able to stop her before. She said Sonny doesn't need her; he's moved on. Meanwhile, Sonny pointed out to Lainey that he married Carly three times, tossed her out of her home twice and shot her in the head. Yep, it's love. Sonny recounted the shooting, then getting involved with Sam, Alexis, etc. Lainey asked if this is a pattern, using other women to get over Carly? He said Emily doesn't fit the pattern. Lainey asked, Who do you envision your future with? After the session, Sonny assured Emily she doesn't fit the pattern; she's not a reaction to Carly. But he did say going after her was "selfish." Emily praised the insights one gets from therapy she wasn't honest about what she learned from her post-rape counseling, and she doesn't want to see that happen to him.

Ric gave a swimsuit-clad Sam her passport. Kristina invited Ric to join them swimming. Afterward, Sam pointed out that her salvage-diving past was actually useful, and noted that Kristina never had swim lessons. Alexis arrived and asked the soaked Sam if she went swimming. Kristina invited Alexis to swim, but she begged off. Sam realized Alexis can't swim, but before it became an ABC Afterschool Special ("The Girl Who Couldn't Swim") Alexis pointed out that Stavros used to mock-drown her. Alexis got a call from Mayor Floyd pressuring her to prosecute Jason for killing Juan Escobar. Alexis assured her they don't have enough evidence, and Sam said she's cool with it. Later, Sam asked Ric to put sunscreen on her back. However, she grimaced and bolted when he touched her. Later, Ric showed up at GH to discuss Sonny's session with Lainey. Emily intercepted him and said it went well. Ric once again bad-mouthed Jason, but Emily defended him.

Jason returned to GH for an appointment with Patrick, and Liz used the opportunity to ask him who really killed Manny. Maxie eavesdropped as Jason recounted the fight with Manny and admitted he didn't see Lucky shoot. He also assured Liz that he would re-evaluate his relationship with Sam after Sonny is squared away. When he left, Maxie noted the conflict of interest inherent in Mrs. Det. Lucky having the town crime boss for a buddy.

Det. Lucky realized it was wrong to kiss Maxie. Later, he arrived at Kelly's, where Lulu blasted him for missing his party, and called him "dad-like." Lucky recounted that Luke blowing off family events made him "treasure" his family, and he vowed to make it right. Later, Liz found Lucky at the docks and demanded to know what's up with him.

As Helena cooed over John, Colleen said Nikolas is still way suspicious of Helena. Helena disappeared when Carly suddenly appeared and cooed over John. Nik appeared and Carly produced John's immunization records. Nik warned her to call first next time. After they left, Helena reappeared and called Carly a cheap but formidable and accomplished gold digger. She directed the nanny to bad-mouth Carly. Nik reappeared and Helena redisappeared Colleen lied that Carly upset John, so Nik said she shouldn't be around again. Back home, Carly packed little John's stuff. When Sonny knocked on the door and asked about the toys, Carly got instantly defensive, but he wanted to apologize. Meanwhile, Emily visited Nik. Colleen skulked as Nik called Emily beautiful.

Back home, Ric marveled at how well Alexis is dealing with Sam. Alexis admitted she and Sam are polar opposites. When Mayor Floyd called again, Ric longingly eyed the spot where Sam had been lying. Sam, meanwhile, was at Jason's in tears. She's been hurting since he left, and she wants him to hurt the same way.

Sonny told Carly he started therapy. He doesn't want to be a medicated zombie, but he'll do what he has to do. Carly advised him to "stop hating yourself." Sonny admitted he spent his session talking about her. "Truth is, we have a bond," he said. It's not pretty, and it's not romantic, but it's there, he said. "I wanna thank you for that."

Liz and Lucky were talking with Maxie overhearing everything they had to say. Lucky was about to confess his addiction, when Liz misunderstood what he wanted to talk about, and assumed it was about Manny's shooting. Lucky played along with it saying that he did not deserve the rewards he had received because the shooting had been accidental. During their conversation, Lucky found out that he was being made the point detective on the Escobar murder to find proof that Jason had been responsible for it. Later on, he met up with Maxie, who had scored some more pills. At first, Lucky did not want to take them, saying that he wanted to stop taking them. Maxie left the pills with him so that they would be available if he changed his mind.

Carly and Sonny were talking at Carly's apartment, where he wanted to thank her for helping him during his time of need. Carly told him that they should keep their distance because they have a habit of helping each other, and eventually getting back together, with disappointment following. Sonny let her know that he did not want to get back together, and that Carly was one of the strongest women he knew.

Outside of Kelly's Dillon and Lulu met up, and Lulu shared with him that she felt that he did not really know who she was. Dillon told Lulu that it was not true and that she was a good person. He told her that this was proven by how she had been willing to lie to him about seeing Georgie and Diego together. He wanted to go out to the pier with her, which she said that she would meet up with him in a half an hour, but that she needed to take care of something. She then went to Carly's to get advice on what to do. Carly convinced her that she had done what she thought was necessary because it was the best thing for Dillon.

Nikolas was getting John's bottle ready while Emily held the baby. He looked at the two of them, said that Emily was a natural and looked wonderful holding the baby. At that time Colleen interrupted them, and took John to feed him and put him down for a nap. At that time Emily shared with Nikolas that as Sonny was going through his therapy, she was doing some self reflection, and she apologized that she never let him in after her rape. Nikolas said that her main responsibility had been to take care of herself, to which Emily replied that she should have been more open to him about the trauma in her life.

Sonny visited Jason to see if Jason needed any help with the Escobar take over. Jason told him that he needed to take care of himself, and that he had everything under control. Sonny shared with Jason his fears that the therapy he was going through would ultimately change who he was as a person. Jason listened to what Sonny had to say, and was agreeing with what he had to say when Emily walked in. She got upset with Jason, letting him know that she didn't appreciate his input, especially when it was his fault that Sonny had gotten sick again, when he took over the business. At that time, Sonny asked Jason to leave so that he could talk to Emily in private. Once alone, Sonny shared with Emily the difficulties he was having with therapy, and that Jason had always been there for him. Emily said that Jason had enabled his illness because at no time did he insist that Sonny get medical treatment. Sonny let her know that Jason knew who he was, and that he needed to be able to talk to him about his fears about losing himself with therapy and medication.

At the pier, Jason was on the phone, tying up the loose ends with the Escobar takeover, when Lucky passed by. Lucky let him know that he was on the Escobar murder case, and even though Jason had saved Liz from Manny, he had saved Jason from Manny so they were even. He left saying that he would do whatever necessary to prove Jason's guilt of the murder. After Lucky left, Jason, called for Liz to come out, knowing that she had been hiding. Liz offered to tell Lucky that it was not his shot that had killed Manny, but Jason pushing him off of the roof. Jason told her not to do that, that Lucky's belief that he had killed Manny had given him his confidence back and had given him the promotion to detective. Liz was concerned that Lucky would be able to prove his guilt, and Jason let her know that she shouldn't worry about him. Liz told him that while it was admirable that he was willing to help everyone, he needed to take care of himself as well.

Back at Kelly's Liz and Lucky met up, where Lucky apologized again for not being there for the party. Liz let him know how proud she was of him, and Lucky promised to be there for her and that he wanted to be a good father. Liz was leaving when she asked Lucky to pick up the boxes of food. Out of Liz's sight, he took out a bottle of pills, and took a few before leaving Kelly's.

In frustration, Emily left Jason's and went to Carly's. She tried to convince Carly that she needed to talk to Jason, and get him to stop encouraging Sonny from going to therapy. Carly let her know that all Jason wanted was the best for Sonny, and that if Emily wanted to stay together with Sonny she needed to accept him and whatever decision he made. Emily was incredulous that Carly wanted the two of them to stay together. Carly said that she did want them to stay together, because that would prevent her from getting back together with Sonny.

Dillon laughs and confronts her about lying to him about seeing Georgie and Diego having sex. He tells her he overheard her talking to his mother. Lulu explains that she did it because she felt he deserved to be with her and not Georgie because Georgie was lying about the letters to Diego and wouldn't stop seeing Diego after he asked her.
