Mike insisted that he knew the Charlie who had once owned Charlie's Pub, and Sonny reminded Mike that he'd lived across the street from the bar. Mike denied the statement and said that he hadn't seen Charlie since Sonny had been around eighteen years old. Sonny tried to calm Mike down as he got more worked up, until D.A. Dawson entered and asked if everything was all right. Sonny insisted that everything was fine, and he introduced Mike to the D.A. Mike explained their argument away as a "squabble about how Sonny got started in the business." "The coffee business, right?" Dawson wondered.
Sonny asked Mike to get them some coffee, and Mike complied. Sonny reminded Dawson that his father had Alzheimer's, which he'd said on the stand. He called her cruel for going after him through his wife, but she replied that she would have done the same to anyone who'd pushed a pregnant woman down the stairs. She continued that she'd become a district attorney to make sure that people like Sonny didn't "jeopardize democracy." She warned him that he didn't want her as an enemy, but he figured there was no way for them to avoid it. "Let the games begin," she smirked, and she left.
Mike returned and asked Sonny who he'd been talking to. "Nobody important, Dad," he replied. Sonny apologized for their argument and added that they needed to go so that they wouldn't be late for dinner with Michael. Mike wanted to wash his hands, so he promised to meet Sonny outside. Sonny looked at the picture of Charlie on the wall and left. He called Max and asked him to look into Charlie Delany.
Sam and Curtis updated each other on their progress looking for Peter, but neither had had any success. They figured that someone had to be helping him, and the only name that made sense to them was Valentin. Sam suggested they search Peter's hotel room to see if anything had been missed in the previous searches.
Sam and Curtis arrived in front of Peter's hotel room, and Sam picked the lock. They entered the room and saw that it had already been rented out, so they figured that they needed to hurry. Sam suggested that they search the vent, so she shined her flashlight on it. As they went to the pull the vent cover off, Dawson entered and asked what they were doing in her room.
Nina was shocked to enter her office and find that it was exotically decorated. Valentin emerged and welcomed her back to Morocco. He wanted her to remember how it had felt to fall back in love, but she only remembered how a necklace had been stolen from the Crimson shoot. She directly connected Valentin's lies with Nathan's death, which would never change. She thought that the décor only reminded her that she never should have given him a second chance.
Valentin reminded Nina that she'd given him thirty days to prove himself, but she answered that she'd only signed the contract to humor him. She wanted a divorce and insisted that she felt nothing for him after he'd made her doubt her instincts and made her "take just in my own hands." He wondered what that meant, but she claimed that it was metaphorical.
Valentin sensed that Nina was hiding something, and he offered to help her if she was in trouble. She knew that he would love to "swoop in and rescue me," but she insisted that she was capable of saving herself. He reminded her that he'd helped her erase every trace of her connection to Cassandra after Cassandra had attacked Nina. She demanded to know if he was trying to blackmail her.
Julian arrived at the hospital and bumped into Alexis. As Lucas listened in, Julian informed her that he'd decided to go to therapy with her because he thought that he owed her the closure she wanted. She walked away to ask Kevin when Julian should attend therapy with her. Lucas took the opportunity to praise the "civil" conversation between Julian and Alexis. Julian explained that he was doing a favor for her, and he hoped she would reciprocate. Lucas left to go back to work, and Alexis returned. "Ready?" she asked. "As I'll ever be," he replied.
Alexis and Julian sat in Kevin's office while Kevin asked Alexis to explain what she was trying to accomplish in therapy. She told Julian that she was trying to figure out her issues stemming from her father in relation to her romantic relationships. She mentioned that "stable and attentive" men felt "foreign" to her, but her choices in men could get her killed. Julian wondered how he fit into it, and she couldn't believe he couldn't see the connection after he'd almost killed her.
Julian defended himself against the allegations and wondered if the therapy session was just going to be about tearing into him. He and Alexis bickered about why he was there until Kevin interrupted them and offered more structure in the session. Julian reluctantly agreed to stay, and Kevin asked what had drawn Julian to Alexis. Julian admitted that he'd seen a lot of good in Alexis, and he'd thought that she could offer him a chance at redemption. He'd thought that she was "strong enough to handle my darkness" and that she could make him a better man. "Lucky me," she muttered. Julian continued that he could never ask for Alexis' forgiveness, but he was truly sorry for his actions.
When the session was over, Alexis and Julian agreed that it had been good for both of them. She appreciated him cooperating and understood if he didn't want to return. He thought they owed it to each other to move on with their lives, and she promised to do anything she could to help him do that. "I'll think of something," he said, and she left.
Brad caught Lucas gazing into the nursery and assured his husband that they would have their own baby "any day now." Lucas was still worried about the birth mother changing her mind, and Brad reminded him that they'd agreed to have faith. Brad continued that they had everything a birth mother could want in a couple, and he urged Lucas to "trust the process."
Brad believed that Alexis would do everything she could to protect them. However, Lucas said that Alexis couldn't keep the birth mother from changing her mind. Brad promised that they would have a baby, and they would be amazing parents. "You can't know that," Lucas worried. "I promise nothing can keep us from being parents," Brad vowed, and he kissed Lucas.
Carly was doing push-ups on the floor of her room when Jason peeked in. She saw him and peered out, placing her hand against the window, and he placed his hand on the other side of the glass. Rupert rounded the corner with his arms full of stacked dinner trays and ordered Jason to open Carly's door. Jason complied, and Rupert entered the room. He told Carly to pick one of the trays. She chose the bottom tray, and all three trays clattered to the floor, spilling food all over.
"Idiot," Rupert spat at Carly, and he demanded that Jason clean up the food. Rupert left and locked Jason in the room with Carly, which she couldn't believe. "Nice trick," he said, but he warned her that she needed to be a "model patient" and cooperate with Rupert and Mary Pat if she wanted to go home. She figured that telling Jason to quit would go along the same lines as that strategy, but she didn't think she could make it there without him.
Carly talked about how trapped she felt, and Jason understood after having been held at the clinic in Russia. He reminded her that every day, she got closer to going home, and he urged her to do it for her family. She grabbed his hand but pulled it away just in time for Rupert to miss it. She wondered where her dinner was, and Rupert advised her that, since she'd spilled hers, she didn't get any food until the next meal.
A short while later, Carly heard a man screaming all the way from her room. Out in the hall, Jason looked around to see where the scream had originated. Kevin walked down the hall and asked if Jason needed something. Jason located the room and asked who the screaming patient in that room was.
• Liesl finds a reason to keep Peter alive.
• Dawson accuses Sam and Curtis of breaking and entering.
• Jason fears that Kevin is going to turn him in.
