Sarah asks about what happened afterwards and Liz tells her about what Bobbie did for her. She says how she couldn't tell them she was raped but they knew. Liz says she doesn't want to see herself or him, and she says she sees him in her room, his hands, his breath and so she came to Kelly's to get away from there, but now every man she sees she thinks it's him. Sarah suggests she still go to the police. Liz tells her she's not ready to go to work and so she takes her little sister home.

Lucky sits down with Luke and Bobbie and tells his Aunt he knows what his dad's done. He didn't tell her about Carly and she shouldn't hate him for that. Luke tries to stop him but Bobbie would like him to go on. He sticks up for his father, saying he'll do whatever it takes to protect the people he loves. Lucky thinks his Aunt Bobbie is wrong. He gets up to go check on Liz but comes back in when he realizes Sarah took her home. He tells his father he's going to the park to look for her the bracelet and asks him if he want's to go with him.

Sarah is overly nice but Liz wants to be left alone. Audrey comes down and Liz says she's not quite over it. Audrey asks Liz for her bracelet back and Liz tells her that the clasp broke and she brought it to be fixed. Audrey's OK with this.

Carly says he has all he needs. She asks Jason why she can't see the baby, she hasn't done anything wrong.

When Monica suggests them meeting the day after tomorrow Carly says she's busy. Monica excuses herself when her dinner date walks in, Bobbie.

Standing there, Luke has flashbacks of Laura running in that same spot and kneeling near the fountain. Lucky interrupts his thought and says he knows he's thinking this is sick. Lucky finds the bracelet within two minutes of starting his search.

Stefan tells Katherine he is not upset, just the opposite. The bench means a great deal to him. Today is his baptismal day and no one, except Alexis, ever gave him a gift. He loves this spot because it reminds him of Greece. He loved to sit overlooking the ocean. He says he loves the ocean, maybe because it's something that can't be controlled. Katherine says like a woman and asks if it reminds him of all the women he's loved. He tells her he has only loved one woman in his lifetime.

Nikolas practices reading again and although he makes some progress he still gets frustrated. Robin helps him along but he tells her no more. He gets up and goes outside where she follows him. It's freezing out there and he can tell that she's cold so they go back in. Robin tells him that he can't force things overnight and it can also be his attitude. He hasn't lost his speech, it's just blocked. She wants to know how badly he wants this.

Bobbie comments on how the baby is getting along in that house where everyone has to watch their backs. Monica thinks they could take care of him, all Bobbie has to do is get close to her daughter.

Jason is called away from the table to discuss business, he's not giving up control of the docks and will not let Jax win.
