At the nurses' station, Elizabeth greeted Robin and joked that she had seen more of Robin lately than when Robin had worked at the hospital. Robin explained that she'd had a checkup and then asked if Elizabeth had talked to Nikolas. Elizabeth confirmed that she had told Nikolas that she loved him, but nothing had changed because Nikolas intended to marry Britt. Robin felt bad and wished that she had kept her advice to herself because she feared that she had made a bad situation worse for her friend. Elizabeth conceded that she hoped that things had turned out different, but she was glad that she had said her piece to Nikolas.
Elizabeth shifted gears and invited Robin to attend the planning meeting for the 2014 Nurses Ball, but Robin explained that she had to go home to pack because Robin intended to leave town later that evening. Elizabeth was shocked when her friend revealed that Patrick and Emma would not be joining Robin. Elizabeth couldn't understand why Robin would leave Patrick and Emma after recently being reunited with them, so Robin confessed that it was difficult to explain because there were a lot of things that Robin wasn't at liberty to discuss. However, Robin assured Elizabeth that Elizabeth would support and be thrilled with Robin's decision if Elizabeth knew the details.
Elizabeth trusted Robin to know what Robin was doing but confessed that she couldn't be thrilled that Robin was leaving. Elizabeth was curious when Robin would be returning, but Robin didn't have an answer. Elizabeth promised to have Robin's back and then hugged her.
At the Quartermaine mansion, Anna and Dante arrived to talk to A.J. about the attempted burglary. A.J. quickly corrected Anna and Dante by explaining that the masked intruder had tried to kill him. A.J. revealed that he had invited the masked gunman to take everything in the mansion and had even offered to open the safe, but the gunman had ordered A.J. to his knees and then had aimed a gun at A.J.'s head. Dante suggested that it was normal for a burglary, but A.J. pointed out that it hadn't been necessary to kill A.J. because the man had worn a mask, so A.J. couldn't have identified the intruder. Anna agreed and wondered if A.J. had any suspects in mind, but A.J. admitted that he hadn't recognized the intruder's voice.
Moments later, Anna's phone rang, so she stepped aside to take the call. After a brief conversation, Anna announced that she had to leave to take care of a personal matter. A.J. was frustrated that Anna hadn't seemed concerned that someone had tried to kill him, but Anna apologized and left. Dante assured A.J. that they had taken the incident seriously and admitted that it was understandable that someone would want to kill A.J. A.J. informed Dante that even though A.J. didn't know who the intruder had been, A.J. was certain that Sonny had sent the man.
Dante wondered if A.J. had any proof, so A.J. reminded Dante that Sonny had tried to kill A.J. the night that Connie had died. Dante became defensive as he argued that Connie hadn't simply died; A.J. had murdered her. Dante recalled that fateful night better than A.J. because Dante had been sober. Dante insisted that Sonny had backed off because of Michael and then had made a promise to Michael not to kill A.J. A.J. argued that Sonny had clearly gone back on his word because there was only one other explanation.
A.J. suddenly tensed as something occurred to him. Dante was curious what the other explanation was, but A.J. refused to discuss it and instead ordered Dante to talk to Sonny because A.J. was certain that Sonny had been responsible for the attempt on A.J.'s life. Dante refused to take orders from A.J., so A.J. suggested that Sonny didn't need a cop on Sonny's payroll when Sonny's son worked for the police department.
After Dante left, A.J. picked up a drink and guzzled it as his thoughts returned to the night that he had confronted Connie with a gun. A.J. recalled threatening to kill Connie and then changing his mind because he realized that both Michael and Elizabeth had deserved better. A.J.'s eyes rounded with shock as he remembered that Connie had been alive when he had left her office. Moments later, A.J. realized that Ava had killed Connie.
At the hospital, Anna approached Robin and Elizabeth and then tearfully asked if Robin was leaving town. Elizabeth quickly slipped away to give Anna and Robin privacy. Robin confirmed that it was true, so Anna wanted to know why Robin had told everyone except Anna. Robin admitted that she had been afraid to say goodbye to her mother because Robin had known that it would be difficult.
Anna demanded to know why Robin was leaving. Robin explained that she couldn't go into detail, so she needed Anna to trust that Anna, Robert, and Mac had raised Robin to do the right thing even when it was difficult. Anna assured Robin that she did, but she couldn't understand why Robin refused to explain why Robin was leaving. Robin recalled being young and not knowing why Anna and Robert would disappear for long periods of time, but she had always had faith that her parents would return. Robin asked Anna to have the same faith in Robin.
Anna could see that Robin's mind was set and that Robin believed that it was the right thing to do, so Anna asked for assurance that Robin wasn't being forced and that Patrick and Emma weren't in danger. Robin promised her mother that Patrick and Emma were safe and that it had been Robin's decision. Anna's eyes filled with fresh tears as she begged Robin to promise to find a way back home to Anna. Anna held her daughter tightly and thought about a poignant reunion that she'd had with Robin when Robin had been a young girl. Robin hated letting go as much as her mother, but Robin explained that her flight would depart later that evening.
At Corinthos Coffee, Sonny was surprised when he saw Lulu standing in his office. Lulu hoped that that Sonny didn't mind the intrusion, but Sonny reminded her that she was family. He also appreciated that the office held a lot of memories for Lulu because of her days as Connie's assistant. Lulu confessed that she had learned a lot from Connie, who had been an amazing woman. Sonny agreed and then switched gears to express his delight that Lulu and Dante had worked things out because Lulu made his son happy.
Lulu smiled and then handed Sonny a gift bag. Sonny grinned when he saw the "World's Greatest Grandpa" mug. Lulu explained that she and Dante had picked it up as a Christmas gift for Sonny, but then their daughter had been taken away. Sonny confessed that he and Olivia were excited about their grandson, Ben, but he was curious how Lulu had been holding up. Lulu assured Sonny that she was thrilled for Dante and then started to talk about how Dante and Ben were together. Sonny clarified that he had wanted to know how Lulu felt about Dante having a son with another woman.
Lulu conceded that it was awkward and that a part of her wished that she and Dante were Ben's parents. Lulu explained that she barely knew Britt but revealed that it would soon change because Nikolas had proposed to Britt. Sonny realized that he didn't know Britt, but he had heard enough about the woman to know that Britt wasn't the best role model for his grandson. However, Sonny was thankful that Lulu would be there to help raise Ben. Sonny talked about Michael and how he loved Michael as his own.
Sonny hoped that Lulu would eventually grow to love Ben in the same way. Lulu confided that a part of her already did. Moments later, Dante entered. Lulu hadn't expected to see her husband, so Dante revealed that he needed to talk to Sonny about police business. Lulu quickly said her goodbyes and then left. Sonny wondered if he should be worried, prompting Dante to reveal that someone had tried to kill A.J.
Sonny denied any involvement, but he was disappointed that the hit had been botched. Sonny asked Dante to let him know when the would-be assassin was found because Sonny wanted to send the man a token of Sonny's appreciation.
At Kelly's, Britt was excited that Ben had eaten two fries and confessed that she was amazed how quickly Ben had grown. Nikolas smiled and recalled when Britt had questioned if she could be a mother to Ben shortly after Ben's birth. Nikolas then changed the subject by suggesting that they throw an engagement party at Wyndemere. Britt confessed that she had seen pictures of Nikolas' past parties, so she loved the idea of a fancy old-fashioned engagement party. Nikolas was pleased because he looked forward to celebrating their engagement with their friends and family.
Britt sobered as she pointed out that she lacked both, so Nikolas promised her that once they were married, his friends and family would be hers as well. Britt was curious if that included Elizabeth. Nikolas quietly assured Britt that Elizabeth would eventually warm to Britt, but Britt doubted it because she was certain that Elizabeth hated her. Britt reminded Nikolas that Elizabeth had gone behind Britt's back to run the DNA test on Ben in an attempt to prove that Britt had been part of an elaborate conspiracy to keep Dante away from his son.
Nikolas conceded that it had been wrong of Elizabeth, but he promised Britt that he knew that Britt hadn't known whose sperm sample Liesl had used to impregnate Britt. Nikolas assured Britt that Elizabeth did, too, and had agreed to put it in the past and move on. Britt was skeptical because Victor had mentioned that Elizabeth had been at Wyndemere the previous day. Nikolas tensed when Britt asked what Elizabeth had wanted. Nikolas assured Britt that nothing inappropriate had happened, so Britt admitted that she knew that.
However, Britt feared that Elizabeth had tried to badmouth Britt to Nikolas. Nikolas recalled Elizabeth's declaration of love, but he decided not to tell Britt. Moments later, Elizabeth entered the diner, so Britt greeted Elizabeth and then asked her directly. Nikolas quickly intervened and explained that Elizabeth had stopped by to congratulate Nikolas and Britt on their engagement. Elizabeth confessed that she had seen Nikolas propose to Britt.
Elizabeth congratulated Britt, so Britt thanked Elizabeth and admitted that it had meant a lot to hear Elizabeth say it. Britt gathered Ben and announced that she had to drop him off at Lesley's on her way to work. After assuring Nikolas that she loved the idea of an engagement party, Britt left. Outside, Britt's smile faded until Lulu walked up and exchanged brief pleasantries with her.
Inside the diner, Elizabeth thanked Nikolas for covering for her because Elizabeth had been embarrassed that she had told Nikolas how she felt. Nikolas assured Elizabeth that she needn't be embarrassed because it hadn't been long before when their roles had been reversed. Nikolas insisted that Elizabeth would always be family to him and his best friend, and he reminded her that they were the two remaining musketeers. He admitted that he didn't want to lose her.
Nikolas reached for Elizabeth's hand but then quickly pulled it away as he conceded that it would likely be awkward for a while. However, she would always be stuck with him.
At Ryan's bar in New York City, Delia ended a call and then revealed that Mr. Nakamura was dead. Silas and Sam were stunned and questioned how it was possible for someone to call Delia with the news. Delia didn't have an answer, but she assured them that a man had called her to tell her that Mr. Nakamura was dead. "Who?" Sam asked.
"That would be me," Nathan answered as he entered the bar. Nathan introduced himself to Delia and then revealed that he had followed Sam and Silas to New York City. According to Nathan, Mr. Nakamura had taken an overdose of medication and rushed to the hospital, where he had died. Nathan pointed out that Silas' wife had ended up in a coma under similar circumstances, so Nathan found it interesting that "a lot" of people connected to Silas abruptly felt the need to end it all.
"You're still here," Silas muttered and then cut to the chase by asking what Nathan was suggesting. Nathan pointed out that Mr. Nakamura had been the key to putting Silas away, so Silas had had motive to kill Mr. Nakamura. Sam informed Nathan that Silas couldn't have killed Mr. Nakamura because Silas had been with her the entire time. Nathan's interest was piqued when Delia interjected to remind Sam that Silas had been tied up with a patient earlier.
Nathan was curious who the patient was, but Silas refused to provide Nathan with any information without a warrant because of doctor/patient confidentiality. Silas insisted that he was not Nathan's guy and suggested that Nathan do his job by looking at Ava Jerome. Nathan was disgusted that Silas would throw an ex-mistress under the bus, but Sam informed Nathan that Ava had been in town. Delia confirmed Sam's claim and added that the visit had been unusual because Delia and her daughter had been estranged.
Sam insisted that it was more than mere coincidence that Ava had been in the city at the same time that Mr. Nakamura had died. Silas suggested that Nathan takes notes because Sam knew how to properly conduct an investigation. Nathan reluctantly agreed to question Ava, but he couldn't understand how Sam could continue to defend Silas. Sam didn't hesitate to explain that Silas was innocent. Nathan wondered why an innocent man would lie about having a wife and never visit her.
Silas reminded Nathan that Nina's parents had barred Silas from visiting Nina and had obtained a court order and hired armed security to make certain that Silas didn't get near Nina. Nathan thought that it was a convenient excuse that Silas used to stay away. Disgusted, Silas informed Nathan that Silas had gone every day for months to the facility where Nina had been transferred but had been blocked from entering each time. Eventually, Silas had given up and had decided to dedicate his time and energy to his patients.
Nathan claimed that nothing would have kept him from his wife. Silas changed the subject by demanding to know if Nathan intended to charge him. Nathan admitted that he couldn't, but he vowed to help the NYPD prove that Silas had been responsible for Mr. Nakamura's overdose.
After Nathan left, Delia apologized for mentioning that Silas had been with a patient. Silas assured her that it was fine because she had told the truth. However, he wanted to know if Sam believed that he was innocent. Sam assured him that she did. Relieved, Silas admitted that Sam's faith in him meant the world to him. He then conceded that Nathan had been right about one thing; it was time for Silas to pay Nina a visit.
Meanwhile, Ava arrived home and poured herself a drink. She jumped when Carlos stepped out of the shadows and greeted her. He quickly apologized for startling her, but Ava demanded to know what had gone wrong at the Quartermaine mansion. Carlos filled her in on Luke and Tracy's arrival and his escape after Tracy had bashed him over the head. Ava was not pleased when he admitted that he had dropped his gun, but Carlos assured her that he had worn gloves, and the gun couldn't be traced back to him.
Carlos apologized for screwing up, but Ava was more concerned that the attempt on A.J.'s life would be tracked back to her. Carlos promised her that she didn't have anything to worry about. Ava poured each of them a drink and then handed one to Carlos. Carlos was curious if she wanted him to try again, but Ava pointed out that it would be too dangerous because the police would be watching A.J. Carlos wondered if she still wanted A.J. dead, so Ava reminded Carlos that she couldn't risk A.J. remembering what had happened on the night of Connie's murder.
Ava assured Carlos that she would think of something, but first she needed to find another alibi. Carlos suggested that she return to New York City, but Ava confessed that things had gotten complicated in the city. Ava walked Carlos to the door and then advised him to keep a low profile for a while. After Carlos left, Ava reminded herself that she always found a way to cover her tracks.
A short time later, Ava answered a knock at her door. It was A.J.
