Sabrina was stunned when she opened her apartment door to find Robin, who asked if Robin and Sabrina could talk. Once inside, Robin saw Sabrina's wedding dress and complimented it. Sabrina explained that the dress had belonged to her mother, who had passed away when Sabrina was very young.
Robin noted that Sabrina's story mirrored Emma's. Robin said that she understood why Sabrina had been so close to Emma. Robin said that one of the reasons that she was there was to thank Sabrina for taking such good care of Emma. Robin told Sabrina that Emma loved her. Sabrina replied that she had never tried to take Robin's place with either Emma or Patrick. Robin said that she had heard from Emma how much Sabrina had done to keep Robin's memory alive.
Robin responded that Sabrina had not replaced Robin but had found her own place in Patrick and Emma's hearts. Robin said that she was very grateful to Sabrina for taking care of her family, which reminded Robin of the second reason for her visit. Robin asked for Sabrina's help in getting her family back. Sabrina said that the choice was up to Patrick, but Robin disagreed and told Sabrina that the choice was hers.
Robin said that she had seen the wedding and she knew how much Patrick loved Sabrina and since they both knew Patrick, they both knew that Patrick would be reluctant to hurt either woman and would be unable to make a choice. Robin said that for two years, she had dreamed that her family was waiting. If not for that she could not have survived.
Robin insisted that despite the fact that Patrick had done what she had asked on that DVD, Patrick would never have fallen in love with Sabrina if Patrick had thought that there was any possibility that Robin was alive. Robin asked Sabrina to make it easy on Patrick. Robin told Sabrina that Robin had given Patrick a push the previous day when she had sent him to Sabrina and now she was asking Sabrina to return the favor and push Patrick in Robin's direction.
Robin asked Sabrina to do the right thing for all of them and break up with Patrick. Sabrina noted ironically that she was conversing with Patrick's not-dead wife, who was asking Sabrina to break up with Sabrina's almost husband. Robin replied that the only things that had kept her alive during her captivity were thoughts of Emma, Patrick and their family. Robin begged Sabrina to let them be a family again.
Shawn told Sonny that Carlos Rivera was not related to Sonny's late wife, Lily. Sonny and Shawn decided to take Carlos for a ride. Meanwhile, Patrick gave Carlos a punch in the face and warned him about taking advantage of Sabrina. Carlos taunted Patrick and told him that it would take bigger cojones than Patrick had. Patrick did not fear Carlos' mob connections and did not back down, but he did leave without getting into another brawl. As Carlos fondled a piece of Sabrina's left-behind lingerie, he gloated that he would be there for Sabrina to pick up the pieces.
Carlos reverie made him careless and he opened his door without checking first. When he saw Sonny and Shawn, Carlos tried to reach his gun, but Shawn stopped him. Sonny asked if it was a bad time, and then told Carlos that they were all going for a ride.
Maxie returned to her apartment just in time to hear Ellie say that they "couldn't do that to Maxie." After telling them that Robin was alive and learning that they already knew via Mac, Maxie wanted to know what Ellie and Spinelli had been talking about.
Reluctantly, they told her about Ellie's job offer, but both Ellie and Spinelli assured Maxie that they would never take her daughter away from her. Maxie surprised both Ellie and Spinelli when she encouraged Ellie to take the job and told Spinelli that it would be best for all of them if he took the baby and moved to Portland with Ellie.
Ellie and Spinelli protested, but Maxie was adamant that that it was in the best interest of their child and it would be easier for Maxie to obey the court order if Spinelli and the baby were thousands of miles away. Maxie added that she knew she was making the right choice because she felt good and knew inside that she was doing the right thing.
A.J. wanted to testify in his own defense, but Diane said that he was making a big mistake and she would resign if A.J. testified. A.J. fired Diane. In the courtroom gallery, Michael and Kiki were stunned by A.J.'s decision and Scotty chortled as A.J. took the stand and Diane walked out.
A.J. told his story, how he had been a failure his whole life and had always run away when he got in trouble. He said that he had returned to Port Charles, ready to be a better man and a better father. A.J. said that little by little, he had taken control of his life along with ELQ, but the best part had been bonding with his son, Michael. A.J. said is life had spiraled out of control and he had lost ELQ when Connie had printed the article claiming that Kiki was not a Quartermaine.
A.J. said that he had blamed Connie and had started drinking to make the pain go away and had eventually blacked out. A.J. said that he remembered nothing about the actual murder, but he did remember thinking about getting rid of Connie and he had a vague recollection of taking the gun from the safe. A.J. also remembered entering Connie's office, but he swore that he absolutely did not remember killing her. A.J. said that he could only pray that he was not the kind of man who would kill a defenseless woman in cold blood. A.J. admitted ruefully that he just did not know.
Scott asked a few questions that A.J. answered truthfully with a yes or no. When the judge asked if A.J. would call anyone else, A.J. rested his case. When the judge asked for summations, A.J. passed and said that he had made his statement.
After Scott had his say, the jury went away to deliberate. Scott thanked A.J. for helping the state's case. Kiki and Michael comforted A.J. who said that Scott was probably right that A.J. had torpedoed his own case, but Michael told A.J. that he was proud of him. Before Kiki and Michael could leave the courtroom, Scoot stopped them and was practically crowing when he announced that the jury had reached a verdict.
Heather, with knife in hand, opened the door to the bathroom where Carly was taking a shower. Before Heather could enter, Franco stopped her, took the knife and held Heather by the throat. Heather was surprised to learn that Franco had caught on to Heather's phone call, a ruse meant to separate Franco from Carly. Franco called Heather a "miserable psychopath" and asked how Heather escaped since the guards that had taken her away the previous time had promised to plug the holes in security.
Heather acknowledged that those guards were the holes in security. Heather told Franco that he needed her because she was keeping him safe and watching over him. Heather said that she had watched him drop off his resume and had watched Carly go to his room. Heather said that she was there to end the threat that was Carly. Franco reminded Heather that he had promised to end Heather if she did not leave Carly alone.
When Heather said that Franco would not do that to his own mother, Franco stabbed her in the stomach. Heather was surprised and asked how Franco could stab his own mother. Heather told Franco that she forgave him and would always love him. She lost consciousness and appeared dead. Franco immediately told the comatose Heather that he had warned her and then panicked when he realized that if Carly found out what he had done, she would have a good reason to think that he was a murdering psycho.
Franco wrapped Heather and the knife in a sheet and managed to get her body in a laundry cart. As he waited for an elevator, Diane saw him and wondered what he was doing. Franco told her that he was working as a housekeeper to earn his keep since his art show had flopped. Diane said that it was Heather's fault. Diane added that she was glad that Heather was locked up and had gotten what she deserved. Todd and the cart got in the elevator and there was no room for Diane. Carly got a text from Carly wishing him well on his job interview.
Sonny and Shawn took Carlos to the cemetery and explained that they were going to kill Carlos as a message for the Jeromes, because Sonny could not kill either Ava or Julian. Carlos, on his knees, was defiant and told then to do it. Sonny said not yet. Shawn stood Carlos up and put a shovel in Carlos' hands. Sonny joked to Carlos that he had to dig his own grave first.
Epiphany saw Patrick at General Hospital and told him that it looked like someone needed a hug. Patrick said that he was fine, but Epiphany disagreed. She knew that Patrick loved both Robin and Sabrina and that Patrick was committed to both women for different reasons. Epiphany sympathized and said that she wished she could tell him what to do. Epiphany reminded Patrick that it was only human for him to spare both women pain. Patrick said that Epiphany was right about one thing; Patrick did need a hug. They embraced.
