Stefan breaks into the Spencer's house looking for the egg. He opens the safe behind a picture on the wall and finds nothing. When he is about to leave their house, he spies a letter on the table from Laura. Inside is a picture that shows Lesley Lu with the egg. The picture appeared to have been taken a few weeks ago. He also finds Laura's address in Switzerland. Stefan leaves the letter where he found it and leaves, but not without Luke seeing him. Luke realizes Stefan fell for the trap.

A majority of Port Charles gathered at Luke's for the All-4-One concert. Lucy is up to her old tricks and tries to get All-4-One to volunteer to perform at the Nurses Ball. Tom reveals he accepted a consulting job in Africa when Audrey inquires about a letter he received about it. He says to Felicia that he has to go now that he is "whole" again to finish what he started there. That is the one gift he can give to his father.

Tony finds a distraught Bobbie at the hospital. He tries to console her about the suspicions that Stefan and Katherine are having an affair. They have a heart-to-heart talk about their marriage and friendship. Tony is paged and has to leave.

Nikolas finds Katherine at her apartment. She is upset and he tries to find out why. He finds Bobbie's scarf and asks why she was there. Katherine will not reveal anything to him and he leaves.

Jax shows up at Miranda's after his business trip. He tells her to get out of town and stay out of his business. She tells him that Sonny and Brenda are involved with each other. Jax demands to know how she knows that. She informs him about the letter she read a few weeks ago from Brenda that revealed her true feelings. Jax was angry that Miranda would read a private letter of Brenda's and accuses her of blackmailing Brenda with it. She tries to tell him that she told Brenda to come out and tell him the truth. Miranda also tells him she loves him and everything she has done was because of that love. Jax says that she has changed and is not the innocent girl he found on the beach those years ago. He leaves and tells her again to leave town, do not call, and do not count on him for anything because he never wants to see her again.

While Jax was at Miranda's, Brenda becomes worried about where he could be. His plane was supposed to arrive a while ago. She calls the pilot of the company plane to see if the plane was late. He tells her they arrived early. Dr. Dorman comes to see Jax, to Brenda's surprise and disgust. He asks to stay and wait until Jax gets home, but she says that she does not want to make small talk with him. Dorman gives his business card and tells Brenda to have Jax call him. Jax finally arrives home.

After seeing Stefan leave his house, Luke goes back to Luke's and calls Laura. He tells her Stefan took the bait and to expect him to visit. He makes sure that she knows what to do. Meanwhile, Stefan tells Alexis he saw the picture of Lesley Lu and the egg. He decides he must go to Switzerland to get the egg since it has something of great value on the inside. Alexis wonders if this is all a plan by Luke and Laura. She does not think they would deliberately take a picture of Lesley Lu and the egg, since it was a gift from Nikolas, and send it to Luke. Stefan does not believe it could be a trick. He thinks he can easily sway Laura to go against her husband.

Jason is suspicious when Carly arrives at Luke's alone. He wonders about the stability of her and Tony's relationship and asks her about it. She explains to him that Tony was on call at the hospital that night. Jason leaves and she inquires about legal help from Justus.

Sonny goes looking for Miranda at her house to find out the information she knows about the drug ring. Brenda arrives there soon after because she also wanted to talk to Miranda. At that time Miranda was at the airport ready to leave town. She is pleasantly surprised when she sees Jax there too. To her dismay, Jax says that he is leaving for a business trip, not to beg her to come back. He says it wouldn't have mattered that he was involved with Brenda, their relationship ended when he thought she was dead. Miranda tries to plead with him and says that Brenda is in love with Sonny, but he does not want her back. She leaves town on a plane. Right after the plane leaves the gate, Sonny and Brenda arrive. Sonny tries to stop the plane, but the airline employee says she cannot do anything about it. Brenda tries to explain to Jax why she is there with Sonny. Jax stops her and says she is on her own and that she doesn't have to be accountable to him anymore. As Jax goes to leave on his trip the police stop him and show him a warrant to search his bags. They find drugs in his carry-on bag and arrest him.

Stefan goes to Switzerland to collect the egg. Not only is Laura there, but Luke is also. Stefan demands he gets what is rightfully his. Luke agrees to give him the egg if they can find out what is inside that is so valuable. Stefan declines, so Luke threatens to throw the egg off the cliff. Stefan pulls out a gun and threatens to shoot. Luke retaliates with his own gun. Laura tries to get them to stop, but a scuffle follows and Luke is knocked unconscious. Stefan leaves with the egg.

Lucy dreams about what it would be like if she and Kevin would have kids. Felicia interrupts her daydream and has some information about Kevin and his trip to England. She found out that the packages he sent were being sent to a convent in the Pyrenees Mountains. Felicia had bought airline tickets for the two of them, so they leave immediately for the convent.

Kevin has a meeting with his therapist. He explains why he is so happy and content with his life. It's because of Lucy, he says. She gives him confidence and self-worth. He tells her that he thinks it is time to tell her all about his father and his secret. The therapist has a nagging suspicion that these new feelings are leading somewhere unresolved. Although, she says, this is a big step and all things are possible. Kevin says that after this last dark secret is out he will not need to go back to the therapist.

Ned and Emily have a talk about drugs and the family. He apologizes for not being there for he when she needed him. She said that it was all her fault and if it was not for him she would be dead. She had lied, cheated, and tried to commit suicide, so why could it have been his fault. He tells her about when he was at boarding school and he smoked pot, but that was it. He had a friend who was really messed up with drugs, so she is not the only one who has had those problems. She tells Ned about how she cannot stand everyone hating Matt and how hard it will be to go back to school. Ned offers to get her a tutor for the last 2 months of school so she wouldn't have to go back. Emily says no because she has to face her fears and she can't hide forever. Ned is very proud of her and says he now knows that she will make it through just fine because she is a fighter.
