Drew was on the phone in his Aurora office when Jake walked in alone. Drew couldn't believe the little boy had made his way there all by himself but wondered what might be so important. Jake was worried about a special day at school with fathers, and he wanted to know if Drew would go with him. He described the planned activities to Drew who assured the boy that he would attend. Jake hugged him, and Elizabeth arrived. She thanked Drew for calling her, and Jake was concerned that he was in trouble.

After Elizabeth heard the reason for Jake's unauthorized visit, she informed her son that she would have taken him to see Drew herself if she had known. Jake revealed that he had thought he'd have to take "the other guy." He didn't know Jason. Elizabeth asked Jake if he'd felt pressured, and Jake acknowledged that Elizabeth talked about Jason all the time. She assured her son that no one expected anything from him until he was ready. She added that Jason was a great dad, and Jake was lucky to have two amazing dads. Jake reminded her that Jason was a stranger.

Elizabeth explained that Jason had been taken away, but he respected everyone's feelings enough to wait for them. She couldn't tell Jake what to do, but she knew that Jason wanted what was best. He was Jake's biological father, so she hoped that Jake would get to know him. Drew declared that he loved Jake and loved being his father, but he thought that Elizabeth had given Jake some good advice. It wouldn't upset him if Jake got to know Jason, and Jake would still see Drew all the time. Elizabeth heaved a sigh of relief.

Josslyn arrived home as Carly finished up a phone call. She removed her coat and admitted that she was scared that Carly had wanted to talk to her. Carly said it was important and admitted that she'd been scared when she'd seen Josslyn trying on the dress for the dance. Josslyn had looked grown-up, but she was only 14, and Carly didn't want her to rush to the end. Carly wanted Josslyn to experience every stage along the way and get to know herself and make decisions from the right place and not because of pressure. "Oh, we're having the this is the talk?" Josslyn asked. Carly agreed that was correct.

Josslyn thought that Carly's timing was out of nowhere but Carly admitted that she'd seen the box of condoms that had fallen out of Josslyn's bag. She swore that she had not been snooping. Josslyn insisted that she had been holding them for a friend, and at first, Carly didn't believe her. Josslyn went into detail, and Carly realized that Josslyn had been telling the truth. "Thank God!" Carly exclaimed as she hugged her daughter. Josslyn informed her mother that she and Oscar had never talked about it, and she was relieved not to have the talk. Carly thought the timing was perfect.

Carly asked if the other kids at school had been talking about or even having sex. Josslyn admitted that there were some of both. Carly suggested she take everything with a grain of salt because the first time was a big deal. She didn't think that Josslyn and Oscar were ready, and she wanted Josslyn to be able to look back and smile. Josslyn reminded her that she had no plans for anything, but Carly went on to say that she wished she had waited. Her first time had been with an older man who hadn't cared about her, but she had wanted to be a woman and make her own choices. It had only complicated things.

Carly confessed that she'd heard Josslyn mention that she would blow Oscar's mind the night of the dance. Josslyn revealed that they were about to break school rules by having their own alternative dance on the night of the school dance. New guidelines had stated that kids could not dress in anything other than their own gender clothing, and a bullied friend of theirs had been forced to dress like a guy when it really wasn't her. Josslyn's dance would allow kids to be themselves, but there was a chance that she could be suspended. Carly surprised Josslyn and said how proud she was of Josslyn for sticking up for others. It warranted another hug.

Kim met with Oscar at Kelly's in order to have a talk with him about sex. She sat down at his table. Oscar told her to keep her voice down, and he really didn't want to have the discussion in public. He reminded her that they'd already had the talk. Kim asked why Josslyn had had a box of condoms, and Oscar rolled his eyes. He explained that she had been holding them for a friend who was afraid her own mother would find them. He insisted that he and Josslyn were not considering anything. He was clearly embarrassed every time that Kim used the word sex, which she did several times.

Kim admitted that she had also been happy at first to think that Oscar had thought about using protection, though he was too young. Oscar confirmed that he and Josslyn had never even talked about it. Kim wanted him to know that when it did happen, he and Josslyn should be "on the same page." Oscar understood. Suddenly, Kim noticed that her son was holding his arm, and Oscar informed her that he'd been taking boxing lessons with Drew. He thought it had been really cool. Shocked, Kim jumped up and ran out after advising Oscar to do his homework.

Michael arrived at Ava's art gallery, holding some mail that had been sent to him from a lab. Nelle admitted that she had arranged it because she'd thought he'd believe the results of the test more. She already knew what it said, but she'd be able to see his face when he read that he was her baby's father. She wasn't sure that Michael wanted to celebrate, but he admitted that he was glad to know the truth. He added that he had known the truth in his gut, anyway. "All that matters is the baby," he said. Nelle was happy to hear it and asked if he wanted to accompany her to her next appointment. She thought he might want to see the sonogram and listen to the baby's heartbeat.

Michael appeared to be far away, but he collected himself and agreed that he wanted to be involved. He was also there out of concern for her employment with Ava. He knew that Nelle was being set up because Ava had to have an ulterior motive. He reminded Nelle that Ava was a liar and a murderer, and she wanted something. Nelle assured him that her eyes were "wide open."

Ava surprised Griffin with a kiss on the cheek at General Hospital. She was ready for her surgery. Kiki walked over and heard the news. Ava advised them both that soon the scars would be a bad memory. Ava was grateful to both Griffin and Kiki. She stepped aside with her daughter, and Kiki advised her that while she wanted Ava to feel whole, she wanted her to be careful. Kiki was concerned about Ava's emotional state and thought that Ava might want to talk to someone.

Ava felt that everything would fall into place after the surgery. Kiki got on the elevator, and Ava advised Griffin that she felt "energized." She had to run to the gallery to take care of a few things and would return to the hospital. She called Griffin her guardian angel, and told him that he had saved her. Griffin hoped she would regain her confidence. They kissed goodbye.

Griffin and Kiki bumped into each other again. She was distraught over missing a phone call from Dillon. Griffin confirmed that the two of them were still friends after her mother's paranoid thoughts. Kiki believed that her mother had been off base, and she believed that Ava would hurt her again. She thanked Griffin for putting up with Ava and apologized for being negative. Griffin thought that Ava had reached a "turning point."

While they were in Sonny's office, Jason and Sonny read the email from P.K. Sinclair that pertained to the ending of the novel. Jason informed Sonny that the novel ended with the son killing his father. "That's something we can work with," Sonny declared. The duo talked about Sinclair, and Jason clarified that he wanted to find Faison in order to learn why the criminal had switched him and Drew. Sonny thought they should just kill Faison and not ask questions, but Jason wanted answers. Sonny didn't think he'd get any and suggested that Faison had wanted an enforcer that he could control.

Jason sent a new email that read, "I can help you get the ending you want." "Now we wait," he said. Just then, he received a call from Michael, who asked to meet with him at Kelly's because he needed some advice. Sonny decided to ask Spinelli to link up Sonny's email with the email address they'd been using. "P.K. Sinclair, come out, come out, wherever you are," Sonny said.

Kim stormed into Drew's office and screamed about how angry she was that he'd given Oscar a boxing lesson. She didn't want her son turned into a soldier, she yelled. Drew calmly pointed to his office and reminded her that that was what he did. He didn't even remember being in the Navy. Kim calmed down and apologized. She admitted to having lots of "what if" thoughts over the years in case she'd run into Drew again. She only knew that her son had never been aggressive.

Drew informed Kim that Oscar had been the one to ask for the lesson because of someone else who had been bullied. He had insisted that it wasn't him, and Drew had believed him. Kim was sorry for overreacting. Drew noted that she'd done a good job of raising Oscar, and Kim admitted that she was proud of her son. Kim thought that it would take time to have things changed. Drew planned on helping Oscar out if the boy asked for it. They thanked each other, and Kim left.

Jason met with Michael outside Kelly's. Michael revealed that he was going to be a father. "Wow," Jason said. He was happy for Michael and gave him a big hug. Michael admitted that he was both terrified and excited, partly due to an unstable Nelle. He was worried that the baby might not be okay.

Jason assured Michael the baby would be fine because it would have Michael as a father. Jason revealed that Michael was the first baby that he had ever held, and he had been scared, too. Michael had taught him how to be a father with "on-the-job training" and how to open up his heart and love someone more than himself. Michael knew that his life would change in a big way, but Jason told him it would be great. Michael would be able to experience all of the baby's firsts.

Jason was happy for Michael and happier for the baby. He encouraged Michael to call him for backup, and he told Michael to take a deep breath. He added that Michael could figure it out as he went along, and Nelle wasn't Michael's problem. Michael thanked Jason for the talk.

Josslyn returned to Kelly's and found Oscar still there. She told him about her awkward "mom stuff" conversation. Oscar was familiar with that. Elizabeth and Jake walked in for some cookies. Jake happened to see Jason standing outside while Elizabeth placed the order, and he gave a little wave. Elizabeth joined him, and Jason waved back.

Sonny found Carly with a glass of wine at home. She admitted to needing it after her talk with Josslyn, but she didn't want to discuss it. Sonny assured her that Josslyn would be fine because Carly had taught her well. They sat on the sofa, and Carly wondered if Josslyn's teen years would kill her.

Ava surprised Nelle when she returned to the gallery. Ava advised her new assistant that she had a few things to check before she had her surgery. She was curious about Nelle's big smile, and Nelle revealed that Michael had stopped by. It was possible that they could be friends again or maybe something more. "If I play my cards right," Nelle said. Ava reminded her that the Corinthos clan never forgot anything. She suggested that Nelle move on and "cut your losses" with some support. She suggested that Nelle enjoy her baby. Ava put on her coat, told Nelle it was an "exercise in futility," and left.

Alone, Nelle spoke to her baby and assured it that they would be a family. Michael was her Prince Charming.

The Sinclair email sounded a response on Sonny's phone. It said, "We should meet." Sonny called Jason and advised him that Sinclair had taken the bait. "Are you ready for this?" Sonny asked. "I'm ready," Jason responded.
