He didn't appear to be all that crazy and was amazed at how similar she looked to his dead love. Hannah then asks Sonny why he didn't tell her that she looked like Brenda. Sonny replies that he didn't say that because she doesn't. She is dark and thin and petite like Brenda but so are a lot of other women.

His plan from the beginning was to marry Carly, get custody of Michael, and send her back to Fern Cliff. AJ tries to defend himself by saying that he has too much respect for himself to enact such a plan and that maybe Carly's refusal to sign the prenup means she has no intention of the marriage working out.

Felicia and Luke discuss the possibilities that the Quartermaines are hiding somehting that may be revealed in the letters.

At Sonny's penthouse, Sonny describes each of the desserts to Hannah who can't choose because they all look so good. Sonny tells her that there is no hurry. Anticipation is half the pleasure. Hannah says that he may be the kind of person who takes his time opening a present, but she would rather rip the paper off as quickly as possible. Tearing the paper off of a present on Christmas morning without thinking is one thing, but it may not be the best way to live her life. She is trying to cultivate caution. She is afraid of getting in too fast and too deep. She tells Sonny about a relationship she had where she couldn't get out.
