Tracy was enjoying breakfast on the patio when A.J. joined her. She admitted that she was glad to see her nephew because she had been wondering when he would make the announcement that Pickle-Lila had been responsible for the fiasco on television. A.J. informed Tracy that he didn't have any intention of taking responsibility for the tainted relish, prompting Tracy to wonder if he had told Elizabeth about his tryst with Carly. Tracy smiled triumphantly when A.J. reluctantly admitted that he hadn't.
A.J. was curious if Tracy was interested in finding out the truth about what had really happened to the relishes. Tracy insisted that Pickle-Lila had been rancid because the quality of the product had been substandard, but A.J. denied it. He assured his aunt that Pickle-Lila hadn't made anyone sick, unless Tracy had tampered with the product. Tracy pointed out that she hadn't had the opportunity, but she didn't rule out the possibility that A.J. had done something to her relish. A.J. argued that he, too, had lacked an opportunity to tamper with Pickle-Eddie, which meant that something else had happened.
Tracy dismissed A.J.'s suggestion that they had been sabotaged and accused him of having the backbone of a "banana slug." A.J. wondered when Tracy had last talked to her sons or gone out on a date. He warned her that tearing him down wouldn't change that she was a lonely old shrew. Tracy hoped that the thought gave him comfort when she took over ELQ, but A.J. vowed that it wouldn't happen. A.J. turned to leave, so Tracy warned him that if he didn't take responsibility for the tainted relish then she would tell Elizabeth about Carly.
"I thought he'd never leave," Ava said as she rounded the corner to join Tracy on the patio. Tracy accused Ava of being an intruder, so Tracy threatened to call the police if Ava didn't leave. Ava helped herself to a bite of breakfast then introduced herself as the mother of Lauren Jerome. "Or should I say Lauren Quartermaine," Ava quickly added. Tracy was curious if Ava was related to two mobsters named Victor and Julian Jerome.
Ava seemed taken aback by the question, but clarified that she was an art dealer. Tracy realized that Ava had likely met Franco in the art world, so Ava quickly explained that Franco had been a different man when she had met him. Tracy wasn't interested in hearing about Ava's relationship with Franco, so she ordered Ava to get to the point. Ava revealed that she was interested in finding out exactly how much her daughter's shares of ELQ stock were worth.
Ava admitted that she hadn't told Lauren about the shares, so Lauren's votes were available to the highest bidder. Tracy pointed out that she wasn't in a position to make any offers, so Ava decided to talk to A.J. Ava was confident that A.J. would gladly meet Ava's demands. Tracy was curious how much Ava wanted, so Ava revealed that one million dollars would satisfy her. She invited Tracy to call her when Tracy had the money ready. Tracy made it clear that Ava wasn't welcome on the premises until Tracy had made a decision.
At Kelly's, Carly squirmed nervously when Elizabeth admitted that she was glad that she had bumped into Carly because A.J. had told Elizabeth everything. Fearing an embarrassing confrontation, Carly led Elizabeth outside so that Elizabeth could unload on Carly without an audience. Elizabeth was confused why Carly expected her to blast Carly. Carly reminded Elizabeth that Elizabeth didn't like Carly, so Elizabeth quickly explained that she had been concerned about Michael and Morgan because A.J. had mentioned that there had been some trouble.
Carly immediately relaxed as she assured Elizabeth that the boys were fine. Elizabeth was curious why Carly had been so defensive when Elizabeth had mentioned A.J. Carly brushed it off as a natural reaction because Carly despised A.J., but Elizabeth was skeptical. Carly explained that she would always be grateful to Elizabeth for saving Josslyn's life by donating Jake's kidney, so she thought that Elizabeth deserved far better than a guy like A.J.
Shortly after Carly left, A.J. joined Elizabeth outside of Kelly's. Elizabeth was happy to see him because she wanted to talk to him about her strange encounter with Carly. Elizabeth confessed that Carly had acted "weird" when Elizabeth had tried to talk to Carly about Michael and Morgan. Elizabeth explained that Carly had become evasive when Elizabeth had tried to get to the bottom of Carly's odd behavior. A.J. suggested that Carly was just being Carly, but Elizabeth suspected that there had been more to it.
A.J. thought that he might have some insight into why Carly had reacted the way that she had when Elizabeth had mentioned his name. However, a terrified scream from inside Kelly's snagged their attention before he could elaborate.
Michael was stretched out on his sofa when Morgan and Kiki entered the living room, giggling. Morgan reminded Kiki to be quiet, but Michael told them not to bother because he was already awake. Kiki immediately goaded Michael, who was in an irritable mood because Morgan and Kiki had kept him up all night with their bedroom antics. Michael's mood didn't improve when he realized that Kiki was wearing his Pickle-Lila t-shirt. Kiki was unapologetic as she admitted that the little old lady in the picture was cute.
Michael informed Kiki that the "little old lady" was his great-grandmother, so he ordered Kiki to take off the t-shirt. "Okay," Kiki replied as she pulled off the t-shirt and exposed her nudity to Michael. Kiki sauntered into the kitchen for a snack, while Morgan jokingly ordered Michael to stop looking at Kiki. Michael made it clear that things weren't working out with Kiki, so she had to leave. Morgan tried to change his brother's mind, but Kiki, who had pulled on another of Michael's t-shirts, made matters worse when she confessed that she had accidentally downloaded a virus on Michael's laptop the previous evening.
Moments later, Carly knocked on the door. Morgan panicked because he didn't want his mother to meet Kiki. Michael took delight in marching over to the door, opening it, and then promptly introducing Kiki as Morgan's girlfriend who had spent the night having sex with Morgan in Michael's bed. As expected, Carly took an instant disliking to Kiki. Kiki held out her hand and invited Carly to call her Kiki, but Carly suggested that Kiki call a cab and put on some clothes. Morgan tried to defend Kiki to his mother, but Kiki assured Morgan that it wasn't necessary.
Carly glared as Kiki pointedly kissed Morgan and then flounced off to shower. Carly pointed out that Kiki could be associated with a crime family, but Morgan argued that they weren't in a position to judge, since Morgan was part of a crime family. Carly was furious that Michael had allowed Kiki to stay in the apartment, but Michael explained that he hadn't had a choice because Morgan had threatened to leave with Kiki. Carly apologized to Michael, but she was not happy with Morgan's choice of girlfriends.
Morgan reminded his mother that he was old enough to make his own choices, but Carly argued that he hadn't shown good judgment by gambling and getting deep into debt with bookies. Morgan conceded that he should have called his parents, but he insisted that he and Kiki hadn't done anything wrong like rob a bank or sell coffee. Carly didn't appreciate Morgan's veiled reminder of Sonny's illegal activities. She worried that Morgan wasn't practicing safe sex with a girl that he had met on the Internet.
Morgan assured Carly that he knew Kiki "intimately." Carly grimaced with disgust, but Morgan ignored her as he picked up the bag of doughnuts that she had arrived with. He thanked her for the breakfast then left the room. Afterwards, Michael apologized to Carly for dragging her into the mess with Morgan. Carly appreciated that Michael had agreed to put up with Kiki for Morgan's sake, but she confessed that she didn't trust Kiki. Michael admitted that he didn't trust Kiki either.
Later, Kiki stepped out of the bathroom as Ava called her daughter to check in and find out if Kiki had tracked down Morgan. Kiki confirmed that she had, so she thanked her mother because Kiki was glad that she had gone to Port Charles. "Me too," Ava replied as she looked out over the Quartermaine estate with a gleam in her eye.
At Kelly's, Dante thanked Kevin for agreeing to meet with him. Kevin explained that he had some extra time on his hands because Lucy was busy launching a new business that she had been very tight-lipped about. Dante told Kevin about Lulu's abduction at the hands of Stavros Cassadine and Lulu's memory loss. According to Dante, the doctors had ruled out clinical causes for the amnesia, which meant that it was likely psychological. Kevin realized why Dante had reached out to him, so Dante told him that it appeared that Lulu had had flashes of memories, but she hadn't been able to hold on to them.
Kevin suspected that Lulu's memory loss was a result of an emotional trauma. Dante admitted that the idea that something terrible had happened to Lulu made him crazy, but he insisted that Lulu needed to remember their life together because it was what Lulu would have wanted. Kevin warned Dante that Lulu might be blocking the memories because she didn't want to recall the event that had caused her memories to shut down.
Lulu entered her nightclub on the Haunted Star and saw the mystery man, who had rented the ship for the party, working on a computer tablet. The mystery man explained that he was compiling a guest list, but Lulu was a little distracted by all the activity on the ship. A workman emerged from the storeroom to ask Lulu to sign some papers because they were almost finished stocking the shelves. Lulu hesitated because she had no idea how to spell her last name. The workman suggested that her friend sign the receipt, but Lulu decided to simply sign the paper with her maiden name.
After the workman left, the mystery man imagined that having amnesia was difficult. He couldn't help her with her name, but he had noticed that she was right-handed, so he suggested that she might prefer the left side of the bed. Lulu decided to change the subject by asking for the man's name because she needed him to sign a contract and pay a deposit. The man explained that his name had to remain a secret until the party because it was part of the surprise that he planned for his guests. He handed Lulu a thick envelope filled with money to cover whatever expenses she might incur from the party, so that she wouldn't have to worry about a contract.
Lulu was disappointed that he didn't trust her with his name, but the man assured her that it wasn't personal; he didn't trust anyone. After the man had left, Lulu resumed picking up the bar. Dante walked in and noticed the activity, so he was curious what was going on. Lulu explained that she had rented out the ship for a private party, but Dante was concerned that it might be too much work for Lulu. Lulu pointed out that she had to get her life started at some point, although she wished that she knew how to throw a party and spell her last name.
Dante chuckled as he told Lulu that Falconeri was spelled with an "i." He then admitted that he had stopped by because he had sensed that something had been troubling her at Laura's wedding. Lulu tried to blame it on being surrounded by relatives she didn't recognize, but Dante was certain that she'd had memory flashbacks. Lulu was reluctant to discuss it, so Dante suggested that perhaps she was subconsciously blocking the memories. Lulu realized that Dante had been talking to a psychiatrist.
Dante asked Lulu to consider talking to Kevin, who was a well-respected doctor. According to Dante, Kevin suspected that Lulu was trying to block out something that the Cassadines had done to her, so Dante promised her that she wouldn't have to deal with it alone because he would be by her side when Kevin helped her recover the memories. Dante was pleasantly surprised when Lulu jokingly wondered if Kevin took insurance and then asked if she even had insurance.
On the piers, Lucy led a group of people on a "macabre and malevolent" tour of the "Stephen Clay Experience." She was unaware that Silas Clay lurked in the crowd, hiding behind big sunglasses and knit cap. Lucy told her captive audience about Rafe and Allison's return to Port Charles, Stephen's obsession with Rafe, and the nightmare that Rafe had endured when he had witnessed his father brutally murder Allison. The crowd was curious what had become of Rafe, so Lucy admitted that Rafe had been placed in a good home when Lucy's bid for custody had been denied.
After Lucy showed them the spot where Allison had been murdered, she led her group to the next stop on the tour. Silas lingered behind to examine the spot where Allison had died. He touched the bloodstain as the mystery man from the Haunted Star walked up and asked what Silas was doing. Silas revealed that he had been told that Silas' brother had murdered a woman on the spot where Silas was standing. "Apparently, that was his thing, killing people," Silas added.
The man suggested that Silas cross the killer off of Silas' Christmas list, but Silas explained that it wasn't necessary because Silas' brother was dead. After Silas left, the mystery man sat down to work on his guest list. The list included Sonny, Maxie, Spinelli, Elizabeth, Carly, and A.J., so he added Michael and Sam. Satisfied, the man put his computer tablet in his bag, pulled out the DVD that he had retrieved from Crimson, and then mumbled that it was time to pay Ms. Morgan a visit.
At the penthouse, Rafe eavesdropped as Sam told Alexis about Silas' visit. Sam admitted that Rafe had had a bad reaction to seeing Silas because Silas was the spitting image of Silas' younger brother, Stephen. Sam explained that Rafe had been rattled when Silas had tried to shake hands, so Rafe had fled to his bedroom. Alexis hoped that Silas had been satisfied with the meeting and had left town, but Sam confessed that Silas had made it clear that he intended to stick around to get to know Rafe.
Rafe stepped forward to inform Sam and Alexis that he didn't want to know Silas because all he saw was the face of the man who had murdered his mother. Sam assured Rafe that she wouldn't force him into anything he was uncomfortable with, but she reminded him that he needed to get ready for his appointment with the therapist. Rafe hugged Sam and thanked her for her support then went to his bedroom. Alexis offered to take Rafe to therapy so Sam could have some time with Danny. Sam thanked her mother, but Sam confessed that she was worried that Silas would make a liar out of her.
Lucy arrived at Kelly's with her tour group as she told them about her encounter with a man she had mistaken for Stephen. Some of the people wondered how Lucy had avoided jail time for staking an innocent man. Lucy insisted that she had been exonerated then turned to show the people where she had had her confrontation. However, Lucy froze when she saw Kevin at the counter. Kevin assured Lucy that she didn't have to stop her story on his account.
Lucy tried to salvage the awkward situation by showering Kevin with compliments as she introduced him as the man who some had mistakenly believed had been the father of Stephen's beloved dead wife, Livvie. Kevin couldn't believe that Lucy's new business venture was a vampire tour. Lucy rushed to explain that her tour wasn't a bunch of stories about vampires, but a tour of a real killer who was, thankfully, dead. Lucy assured everyone that there wasn't any possibility that Stephen would be back.
Kevin's tense expression when he looked at the doorway alerted Lucy to trouble. She turned then stared in horror at Silas, whom she had clearly mistaken for Stephen. "No," Lucy cried out as she tried to make sense of what she was seeing. Kevin tried to calm Lucy down as Silas quickly explained that he was Stephen's older brother, Dr. Silas Clay. Kevin recognized the name, but Lucy wanted corroboration of Silas' claims.
"Will I do?" Sam asked from the doorway. Sam, who had Danny perched on her hip, approached Lucy to confirm that Silas was indeed Stephen's brother and that Silas was in town to meet Rafe. Lucy warned Silas that he had better have Rafe's best interests at heart, so Silas assured Lucy that he did. Meanwhile, Lucy's tour group became restless, so Lucy decided to continue the tour by taking the group to the catacombs.
After Lucy and Kevin left with the tour group in tow, Silas thanked Sam for her help. Sam informed him that she had done it for Lucy because she hadn't wanted Lucy to get into trouble for staking another person. Silas tried to talk to Danny, but Sam refused to let him use her son to get to her. Silas apologized then offered to help pay for Rafe's expenses. Sam resented the suggestion that she couldn't afford to take care of Danny and Rafe. Silas assured her that he hadn't meant to upset her, but he had hoped that his offer would make things easier.
Sam wondered what Silas was talking about, so Silas handed her a thick envelope. She asked him what was in the envelope. Silas explained that it was a copy of papers that he had filed with the courts, petitioning for custody of Rafe.
Outside, A.J returned to the table to explain that Lucy had mistaken someone for Stephen Clay. Elizabeth feigned relief that they didn't have a "vampire" on the loose. She then reminded A.J. that he had been about to tell her something about Carly.
