Alexis and Luke exchange the usual comedic banter, when she finds him with binoculars at the wharf. He wants her to help get Stefan and Bobbie to break up. She of course knows something is going on and realizes Luke really cares more for Bobbie than he was letting on earlier. Meanwhile, Stefan (being warned by the phone call from Alexis about the drugs she saw Bobbie with at the hospital earlier), jumps Bobbie from behind, as she opens the wall where the box is. She tries to lie her way out of it, saying she was looking for evidence on his affair with Katherine. He is in a rage, as he forces her to hand over his medallion. And he tries to get her to drink the port she had drugged (he had switched the glasses without her realizing it). He thought she was going to poison him and she denied it. He tells her he knows what she and Luke have been up to. He feels Luke was her pimp, as she forced her way into his bed, just to get information from him. She informs him it wasn't that way at first and that she stupidly fell in love with him. But, now she knows what a fool she's been. He starts insulting her about her past as a hooker and tells her she belongs back in the streets. He goes and rifles through her clothes and starts throwing them at her, telling her to get out! Bobbie is in tears. She says she doesn't want anything he gave her, " You only thought you bought me. If I am a whore, I'm a whore you couldn't afford." He tells her he never forgets or forgives and he will ruin them both. She leers at him and says, "We'll let the judge decide whose going to ruin who." Later, at the wharf Luke comforts a tearful Bobbie and tells her they'll find another way to get Stefan. He takes her to his house.

Meanwhile, Brenda makes her escape from the police department with Jason's help and Mac as a diversion. Taggert is furious and gets in a few smart remarks to Sonny and Sonny tries to hide a grin. Jax comes to the PD and is very concerned about Brenda. All who know her, realize she is being set up. Jax accuses Sonny of conning Brenda into taking the fall for his crime. Even Mac questions Sonny about who could be setting her up...Sonny assures Mac he didn't do it! Jason gets Brenda to a safe place-a house in the woods (could be the farm Sonny bought-my guess). Jason leaves her there alone, to set up his alibi for breaking Brenda out. The bartender agrees with his story that he was there at his apartment the whole time (asleep-Jason says.)

Nikolas brings Katherine a gift (ice skates) to her at her penthouse. He is worried about their friendship, after all the Cassadines have done to her. She assures him he will always be her friend. But, it is over between her and Stefan. Nik seems glad to hear this bit of news.

Stefan told Alexis that he did not believe Bobbie's story about Katherine and had thrown her out of Wyndemere. Stefan wasn't pleased that Bobbie had been working with Luke on cracking his secret box, but knew that they had not figured out what was inside. Stefan was also confident that Luke did not know what was in the Faberge egg. Stefan also thanked Alexis for tipping him off about Bobbie and promised that he would never let anyone get that close to him and Nikolas ever again. Stefan broke the news to a disbelieving Nikolas who then left to confront Bobbie at the hospital. Nikolas was devastated when Bobbie was not able to deny that she had tried to drug Stefan. Nikolas also learned that Lucky and Sarah would be working for him at the hospital. Bobbie moved in with Luke. Stefan notified Audrey of the drug theft, but Bobbie realized what he was trying to do and told him that she would put up a fight. As Stefan told Bobbie that his revenge was just beginning, Luke received information from the WSB that could stop Stefan. AJ and Tony's bond continued to grow during their breakfast and AJ noticed a pregnancy pamphlet. Later, AJ asked Carly why she never told him that she pregnant.

Lucky got ready to quit his volunteer job at General Hospital after he learned that Nikolas was his boss, but after Sarah's words and an experience with a young patient, Lucky changed his mind. Sarah was shocked to learn that Nikolas and Lucky were half-brothers. Carly told AJ that she was keeping her pregnancy a secret out of concern for Bobbie. AJ praised Carly's actions, but started to remember some of their conversation from the night they had slept together. Carly decided to use Keesha as a way to distract AJ and his memory. Meanwhile, Brenda tried to get comfortable at Sonny's "safe house" and watched a television interview in which Garcia fielded questions about her escape. Jason and Sonny staged a medical crisis. Sonny then escaped to join Brenda and Jason took Sonny's place in the gurney. Jason was arrested and came face to face with Ned at the police station. Monica and Ned also watched the television interview and learned that the murder weapon had been found in Brenda's car. Monica asked Ned if he had set Brenda up, but he made it clear that he had taken care of things and would never do anything to hurt Brenda. Monica tried to keep the news of Brenda's arrest from Emily, but she heard what happened from Edward.
