Chloe and Jax got the news from Tony that her brain tumor is benign, but could still cause her to lose her vision. Surgery is not an option because of the location of the tumor, and Tony recommended a drug therapy. They discussed the treatment, including possible additional effects from the tumor (blurred vision, vivid dreams, headaches), and Tony asked her to keep a diary. Jax and Chloe went back to his home to drink a toast, but while Jax was getting the supplies Chloe fell asleep and dreamt of the hit and run.
At the PC Grille, AJ ordered a drink at the bar, but Ned arrived and canceled the order. AJ again began to try to justify his arson, this time by comparing his actions to some of Ned's, Alexis', and Jason's dealings. Ned wasn't having any, though, and pointed out that AJ was right back were it all began, at the bar. AJ continued to feel sorry for himself and stormed off, vowing to get his son back. Alexis entered as he left, and she and Ned discussed AJ's drinking and Sonny's character, about which they agreed to disagree. Chloe phoned Ned with her report and prognosis, and Alexis and Ned were relieved.
AJ turned up next in Tony's office, rifling his files in hopes of getting something on Sonny from the time he was admitted to the hospital with a heroin overdose. Tony came in and caught him, demanding to know just who AJ thought he was - "I'm you, Tony, two years later. Carly's latest roadkill." AJ brought Tony up to speed on the divorce and custody, and asked Tony to help him, but Tony declined, pointing out that there is no need to punish Carly and Sonny since for them to be together will be punishment enough. Alan came in and scolded AJ, who fled. Alan explained to Tony that one minute AJ was the CEO of ELQ and a happy family man, and the next he's an unemployed drunk. Tony left as Monica entered, and Alan filled her in on AJ's behavior. She vowed to do whatever it takes to save him.
At Mac's office, Dara entered and Mac told her about his reconciliation with Felicia, and then he called Felicia to tell her he'd be home soon, but she wasn't there to answer the phone. She was down on the docks, where she overheard Helena and Mrs. Lansbury talking. Mrs. Lansbury had no message from Stefan about where he'd gone or when he'd be back, but she did intercept a message from Stefan's pilot indicating that he'd gone to the Indian Ocean and had a seaplane. Helena was pleased that Stefan went exactly where she'd pointed him, and reasoned that when he got to the yacht he'd remember only his father, not any of Luke and Laura's history there, and so be unable to guess her next move. Helena added that Mrs. Lansbury was to report any more information about Stefan, and gave her a small wad of money. Felicia, witnessing all of this, hurried to Mac's office to report that Helena was in town and insisted that he bring her in. Mac did not look pleased.
Luke held his gun on Stefan as Stefan said again that he only wants to help them find Lucky. Stefan argued that they need his help since he is able to track Helena, and refused to leave when his help was turned down. Luke aimed the gun at him and said that the only way he could stop Stefan would be to shoot him, but as that might upset Laura, he'd settle for slowing him down a little. The gun went off, no damage, and Luke locked Stefan in the closet. Luke proposed that he and Laura go over the yacht one more time and then leave, and all the while Stefan was in the background calling Laura to let him out. Laura was unsure, but agreed to leave with Luke. She came back alone a minute later, and Stefan talked to her through the door, reminding her of how he rescued her from the train tracks, he knows her pain, he loves her, how could she doubt him? Laura wavered, and Luke arrived to ask whether she was just checking to see if Stefan were locked up tight or if she were about to make a big mistake? She explained that she didn't trust Stefan, but didn't want to hurt him. She planned to call the authorities to let him out as soon as she and Luke were safely away. Luke replied that he hoped she had a cell phone, as he was not going to stop to make any calls, and, naturally, she had one. They left with Stefan still entreating Laura not to leave him in there.
Roy regained consciousness on the floor of the warehouse. He remembered what happened and called for Bobbie, but he was alone.
Carly and Sonny arrived home, and Sonny instructed Johnny to find Roy and bring him there. Carly began to phone the police, but Sonny convinced her that doing so would get Bobbie killed. Carly was scared, and after pleading with Sonny to promise her that Bobbie would be all right, she and Sonny had a long comforting hug. He sent her upstairs to get some rest as Johnny entered with Roy. Roy was angry, but told Sonny that he'd found Bobbie and she was all right so far. Sonny wanted to know about the meeting, and Roy told him that Sorel wanted Sonny to move his product. Sonny replied that that wasn't going to happen, and Carly came down the stairs in time to hear this. She misinterpreted his remark as a refusal to help Bobbie, and stated that they had to do whatever Sorel wanted. Sonny told her to calm down, and pointed out that Roy had seen her mother and she was not hurt. Carly went to patch up Roy's injuries, and while she was getting the supplies, Sonny cautioned Roy against upsetting Carly. He was mainly interested in how Bobbie could have found out where the meeting was being held, and Roy insisted that it had not been from him or Benny. Roy said he hadn't been followed, and thought perhaps Bobbie had been there before he'd arrived. Sonny thought about the note in the desk, and remembered Bobbie had dropped by before they'd left for the Dominican Republic. He began to ask questions and Carly caved, admitting that she'd unlocked "that stupid desk", given Bobbie the address, and "told you living together wasn't a good idea."
Napping at Jax's penthouse on the chaise lounge, Chloe had a nightmare about the accident. He gently woke her and they talked about it. He said that she was remembering it and that was good. She told him that in her dream, it was she who was driving the car that hit her. She told him that she had to get to L&B to do some work and he asked her if it couldn't wait. She regretfully told him it could not. He said that if they lived together, they wouldn't have to say good-bye nearly as much. She at first thought he was hovering over her and refused, but after he vowed his love for her and said he couldn't waste one moment they could spend together, she agreed to move in that night.
Felicia begged Mac to bring Helena in for questioning and he angrily told her not to tell him how to do his job. He accused her of using the news about Helena to stay close to Luke. She told him if that was so, she would have told Luke about Helena, not him. They bantered back and forth with Mac continuing to insist that she should not have involved herself in the case, that there is an APB out on Helena and they will catch her. Felicia did her best to reassure Mac that he was the one she loved and that being with him and the girls was what she wanted most. She promised that she would stay away from Luke and out of anything involving him. He told her not to make any promises she couldn't keep.
On the yacht, Luke held a gun on Stefan as he begged them to let him help find Lucky. Luke forced him into a closet and locked him inside. As he beat on the door, he begged Laura to help him. She glanced quickly at Luke and they both headed out the door. When she returned for her bag, Stefan told her he knew she was there, that he could feel her. She started to move toward the door and Luke returned, asking her if she was checking to make sure it was nice and secure or making a big mistake. She left with him again. Later, Stefan was able to find a knife in the closet, which he used to jimmy the door of the closet open.
Roy, Sonny and Carly anxiously awaited contact from Sorel. Sonny fumed over Carly giving Bobbie the key and she apologized. He admonished Roy for not waiting for him, saying that his botched rescue of Bobbie now meant they didn't have a clue where she was and that Sorel would have heavy security around her. Finally, the call came from Sorel and he told Sonny that he had a shipment he wanted moved. Sonny put him off and Sorel told him that it was the only way he'd get what he had that Sonny wanted. Afterward, he told Carly that the call had been casino business and sent her upstairs. Roy rightly guessed that the call had been Sorel and Sonny informed him that Sorel wanted him to move drugs, which he never does. Roy told him that he'd better be ready to do whatever Sorel asks, then left.
Later, Carly asked Sonny if they would ever be able to get back to where they had been before all this happened. She apologized again for giving Bobbie the key to his desk and asked if it had been so long since he had loved anyone that he'd forgotten what it was like when you would do anything for them.
On the docks, Roy ran into Hannah who was shocked and worried when she saw that he'd been beaten. He told her what was going on and that he had gone to the FBI for help, only to be turned down. She was surprised by this and he told her they had not cared about Bobbie at all, only that Sonny might do something illegal to get her back. Just then, his cell phone rang and Sonny told him he was ready to do what Sorel was asking. Roy told him to just let him know what to do and when.
The Quartermaines were prolonging breakfast to see if AJ would show up. Alan reprimanded Monica for saying she was grateful that the police had not called. AJ finally showed up and everyone stared at him as if he were a new species. Frustrated with their scrutiny, he served himself a bowl of cold cereal, dumped vodka all over it, and ate it, much to their disgust. Edward lashed out art AJ again, despite Alan's protests. Alan told AJ he was going to an early AA meeting and asked if he's like to join him. He refused, saying he already knew he was powerless over alcohol and didn't care.
Ned and Alexis tried to find a way to save L&B from going under. Ned reminded her that Edward had offered to underwrite all of L&B expenses if he would just come back to ELQ. Alexis asked if Ned really believed him. Ned pointed out that Edward is desperate and Alexis retorted that they are always desperate. She suggested that Eddie Maine go on tour, that it was easy money and he could run the company on the road with faxes, email and a cell phone. He refused, saying that Eddie Maine is retired.
Luke and Laura annoyed a flight reservationist until he told them that Helena's plane had gone to Argentina. Luke tried to bamboozle the pilots of the plane and offered to triple their pay if they'd fly him to Argentina. They sensed that something was wrong, suspected he was a smuggler and handcuffed him. Laura saved the day by pretending to be Agent Drever of the FAA and lambasting their security on the plane and in the airport. She demanded that they release "Agent Spitz", but not after he convinced her to only give them a verbal warning. Later, they prepared to board their flight and she told him Lulu had lifted the badge from a forest ranger and she'd kept it, at LuLu's request, to show Luke. Luke said he'd act surprised when she did.
Helena took Lucky into Mikkos' old office on Ice Princess Island (looked like the same set to me, folks). Lucky was impressed with the plans for the weather machine and what was left of the machine itself. She told him what a visionary Mikkos was, a genius, and that but for his parents, Mikkos would have created a Utopia on Earth. She sadly told him that there would be no desserts, rain forests everywhere, no more hunger, floods, etc.
Alan and Monica argued about how to best help AJ. Monica wanted to throw him out, saying that paying his bills and keeping him warm and safe was not going to help him get better. Alan didn't really have a better plan, but argued that AJ needed them now and that since Monica had already lost one son, she should be careful or she'd lose another.
AJ ran into Hannah on the docks and apologized for his bad behavior. She admitted that love could make you do stupid things. Taggert misinterpreted his intent and threatened him until Hannah intervened. After AJ left, Hannah told Taggert she didn't need him to protect her. They chatted for a while and she told him she was still considering leaving the FBI. He said that she should do whatever works for her. She told him she'd miss working for him and he asked her if it was because he was pretty good for a local boy. She said, 'NO, because you're cute" and walked away. He beamed and said, "She finally noticed!"
At the diner, Tammy wondered why Liz was working so frantically, and Liz explained that she had to keep her mind off Lucky -her nerves are frayed, she can't stop thinking about him, it's hard for her to think positively. Tammy advised her to just remember the good times, be grateful for the time they had together and not get ahead of herself wondering about his return. Mike entered with flowers, and Tammy left to change for their date. Mike sat down with Liz and told her that life is full of surprises and advised her to hold on, as love can come more than once. Liz went to put the flowers in water and agreed to lock up as Mike and Tammy happily left for their date.
Mac and Felicia were walking home after dinner and went to the place on the docks where Felicia went to think about Luke. Mac explained that he wanted to "reclaim" the spot, and they were kissing when Mac's phone rang - Taggert, wanting his help interrogating a jewel robber. Mac left after agreeing to meet Felicia at Kelly's, and Felicia was on her way when she saw Andreas and Mrs. Lansbury. She hid and eavesdropped on their conversation. Andreas explained to Mrs. Lansbury that Helena wanted to know what Stefan was up to, and admitted that she planned to lure Luke and Laura to Ice Princess Island and trap them there. Mrs. Lansbury wanted no part of that, and told Andreas that if Mrs. Cassadine wants to speak to her she will have to contact her personally. After Andreas and Mrs. Lansbury left, Felicia sat and thought over what she'd heard. Eventually Mac returned, and explained that he wouldn't be able to go to Kelly's after all as the interrogation was taking longer than expected, promising instead to meet Felicia at home as soon as possible. She was on her way home when Liz came by. Liz expressed all her fears about Lucky, and Felicia did her best to reassure her that it had indeed been Lucky she had seen. Felicia advised Liz not to jump to conclusions about why the rescue was taking so long and told her to call if she needed to. Liz went off to the studio to be alone, and Felicia fretted some more about her new information. She phoned Claude, but he was unwilling or unable to tell her how to reach Luke. She remembered her vow to Mac about never speaking to Luke again, then softly said "Sorry, Mac" as she set off.
Jax and Chloe moved in together, and joked about her many possessions and his lack of kitchen supplies. Alexis arrived with the divorce papers, and Chloe tactfully exited to retrieve something forgotten at her suite. Jax, ever the gentleman, and Alexis disagreed about who would file against whom (Ed: NY is not a no-fault divorce state - there must be one person clearly in the wrong) and it was decided that Alexis would file against Jax. Alexis expressed concerns that Jax was moving Chloe in too soon, that Jax loves deeply and gets his heart broken when life happens. She wanted Jax to take care of himself, but Jax insisted that loving Chloe was doing just that. They spent some time discussing what true friends they are to one another and agreed that they would miss being married. Alexis, with tears in her eyes, blew a kiss as she left, and Jax thoughtfully removed his wedding ring and slipped it in his pocket. He was shuffling some of Chloe's boxes around when she returned. They joked about his being "back on the market", then she showed him the figurine she'd retrieved from her suite. Her mother had given it to her, telling Chloe that if she took it wherever she lived, it would make the place her home. Jax put the figurine on the mantelpiece and declared "You are home, Chloe."
At the penthouse, Carly was anxious and demanded to know if Sonny had had any word about Bobbie. He hadn't, so Carly started to go to the police but Sonny convinced her that doing so would get Bobbie killed and insisted that she just let him handle everything. Roy arrived as Sonny and Carly argued over who was to blame for Bobbie's kidnapping. Sonny maintained that if Carly hadn't given Bobbie the key to the desk, she wouldn't have found the meeting, but Carly insisted that she had to help Bobbie, as she was sick with worry over Roy. The argument wound down, and Roy told Sonny he had "the merchandise." Sonny left to make a phone call, and Carly started in on Roy. He told her he didn't want to get into it with her, but she explained that she just wanted to help, and then told Roy that he has no idea how much Bobbie loves him. She talked about how Bobbie's eyes lit up whenever Roy was mentioned, and said that that was why she had to help her find the meeting. Roy tried to reassure her that Sonny had things under control, but Carly believed that Sonny would sacrifice Bobbie in a second to stay in power. She begged Roy to promise that Bobbie would be all right, and he agreed to do anything necessary to bring her home safely. Carly accepted this, then pointed out that "You're just a guy who unloads coffee", but Roy stood firm - "nobody hurts Bobbie, not Sorel, not Sonny; I'll do whatever it takes, no matter what I have to do." Sonny returned, told Carly he'd call in a couple hours, and he and Roy walked to the door. Carly quietly told Sonny to be careful, and he considered her remark for a moment, then agreed.
Bobbie and Sorel sat in the car, waiting. Bobbie wanted to know how Roy fared in the beating, worried that he might even be dead, but Sorel was unconcerned and pointed out that Bobbie might do better to worry about her own skin.
Very effectively, the following scenes were intercut: Carly fidgeting, too anxious to read; Bobbie and Sorel sitting in the car, waiting silently; Sonny and another man placing a suitcase on the wall; Carly getting her coat, but Johnny preventing her from leaving; Carly trying different tactics to talk Johnny into letting her leave, but Johnny refusing them all; Sorel bringing Bobbie to trade for the suitcase.
Sorel decided he had to see for himself that the suitcase contained what Sonny said it did, but wanting no witnesses, ordered Bobbie thrust back into the backseat of the car. He was satisfied with the contents, but when Sonny demanded Bobbie in exchange, Sorel refused. He wanted to keep Bobbie to ensure Sonny's further cooperation, and when Sonny said it was a one time deal, told him that it was a shame - since he had no further use for Bobbie, he would have to dispose of her. Just then, while Bobbie sat in the back seat crying and worrying, a man rolled the front seat partition down. He inquired "Where to, ma'am?" and turned - it was Roy.
Helena and Lucky are looking over a severely neglected Ice Princess Island hideout, of course with chess set. Helena begins spouting the genius of Mikos, her late husband, as Lucky agrees, (okay, why?). She asks Lucky if he has accepted his parent's inadequacies. She finds Lucky fascinating. He has triumphed over so much. How did he survive such an upbringing she wonders aloud? The chaos? Lucky replies with a big grin that it was cool. When all of the other "regular people" were actually missing out. Lucky and Helena continue with their chess game. They laugh as Lucky advances on the game. She tells Lucky that due to his victory he gets another question answered. Helena tells Lucky that actually he gets a choice. Does he want to remain on the island a little longer or go back home to Port Charles?
Luke and Laura are on Ice Princess Island, (and yes, they still have it). They are bickering fondly about where they will pitch their tents for the night. Laura insists they need to move on in search of Lucky and they have no time to wait. Although Luke agrees, without the sun to guide him, it is probably better if they call it a night. In a cute exchange, Laura wants to know about his constellation concept. Uh, let's stay here for the night. Laura agrees and observes how ironic that they should end up almost exactly where they started, Ice Princess Island. As Luke roasts marshmallows for the two of them, they, specifically Laura, continue to remember their time on the island. How although a maniac, Mikos ran the island, it was still a Garden of Eden. Luke remembers aloud Laura in a sarong with her golden hair. She was so distracting, he continues he almost didn't save the world. She reminds Luke they had a little help from Robert Scorpio. He tells Laura that he thinks Robert interrupted their lovemaking more than anyone they knew did. They share a laugh. Luke and Laura continue to remember their time on the island. Laura wants to know what happened to that carefree girl she used to be. Luke tells her kids. She says she didn't have plans or a future, just staying alive. Luke agrees. She reminds him that before all she needed was him. She was never scared and felt they were invincible and they were magic. She says although she remembers all of that, she does like who she has become and what. She says though, that there are days that she wishes she could "fly" again. She tells Luke some days if he just extended his hand and said nothing, she would go. Suddenly, the dynamic duo, hear a noise. What is it? As they begin to prepare for the invader, Laura picks up a huge log. A disguised Felicia, in all black, wrestles with an unsuspecting Luke. Laura readies the club.
Edward arrives at Sonny's penthouse and demands Johnny let him in. Johnny says Ed isn't welcome and he better go. Ed assures Johnny that for no other reason than Carly's perverse curiosity, he better announce him. Johnny caves and knocks. Initially Carly says she has nothing to say and Ed begs, elegantly, as a favor to him, that she has nothing to lose. Okay come in. As Ed and Carly share tea at the table at Sonny's, he tells her it is nice to see that she hasn't lost all her class. She reminds Ed that it doesn't stop at the Q gate. She says that she likes being away from AJ. He tries to bribe her with promises of more independence, her own place, money and just a few visits from Michael, of her specifications of course. Carly tries to tell Ed that she truly is happy and only has one person to answer to in Sonny, instead of an entire family. Of course, Sonny walks in and wants to know what is happening here? He threatens Ed and tells him he isn't welcome there. If he comes again or if he wants AJ doing 20 to life, that is not a problem. Ed tells Sonny that there is no reason for that. Sonny reminds Ed that Michael is happy and Carly can speak for herself. He tells Ed only Lila and Emily are welcome there. Edward leaves and vows that he will continue to pursue Michael. After Ed leaves, Sonny tells Carly that Bobbie is with Roy. Great Carly says at the bottom of some lake? Sonny tries to reassure her. Just then, Bobbie and Roy enter as a thrilled Carly runs and hugs her mother. Sonny smiles at Bobbie as they embrace. Bobbie calls Tony to check on Lucas and tell him she is okay. Roy and Sonny are having a drink and Roy thanks Sonny. Sonny affords Roy the complement of a good job. Roy expresses concern over Sorel and Sonny tells him that Sorel is neutralized for now. Bobbie tells Carly she is worried about her, as Carly tries to tend to her mom. Sonny asks Roy what happened to Sorel's limo and Roy replies that it ended up off Pier 17. Bobbie thanks Sonny and refuses food or shelter from Carly. She wants to go home to her own bed. Sonny tells Carly that Johnny will take her home. Roy agrees to tag along. Roy tells Bobbie that he just wanted to see her safe and sound. Once inside the brownstone, Bobbie tells Roy she is only safe, not sound. They get closer and kiss passionately. Bobbie tells Roy that she has always loved Roy and always will. He tells Bobbie that he has been lying and that he really doesn't work for Sonny, but is a snitch for the F.B.I. A shocked Bobbie looks into her eyes. Carly tells Sonny, after the duo leave, that she will never stop thanking Sonny for what he did for her mom. He tells her he told her that he would get her mom back. She tells Sonny that she is so sorry and she thinks they both made a mistake in their judgments of eachother. Sonny agrees, but says the only mistake he made is sitting in front of him. She is a slip up he cannot afford. She conveys her gratitude again, and that he has had to deal with scum before. Not again, he wants Carly to know what it costs him to do something like that. Carly explains that she only did it, because she loves her mother and her mother loves Roy. Sonny reminds Carly that he saved her, her kid and all he wanted in return was a little respect. Carly asks Sonny what he would do if some similar situation arose for him with his father Mike. Sonny reminds Carly that he protects Mike and doesn't tell him much on purpose. Carly says she is sorry again. Sonny tells her the only thing she accomplished, was to make Sonny not trust her again.
Roy as the chauffeur of Sorel's limousine, surprises Bobbie, both by being alive and as the driver. She is relieved and tells him she thought he was dead. He tells her he is not so easy to kill. He tells her to fasten her seatbelt; they are going for a ride.
Sonny tells Sorel that his bargaining chip, Bobbie, is getting away. Of course, we hear a peel out in the background. Stupid Sorel. Just then, another one of Sonny's goons pulls a gun on Sorel. Sorel tells Sonny he has made a big mistake. Sonny plays the Regis game, (clever ABC tie-in), is this his final answer Sonny wants to know? He has no more lifelines. Clever. Sonny reiterates that he does not transport drugs. He asks Sorel if he likes chocolate mousse? Because, all the entire "product" in the briefcase is powdered sugar. Sorel seems semi-panicked and comments that his suppliers will love this. Sonny tells Sorel to pick up the case and turn around. Bravely, Sorel asks why so he can be shot in the back? Sonny assures Sorel if he were going to shoot him, he wouldn't tell him. Sorel turns around with the case and Sonny shouts, "Bam," and then says, "Just kidding." He tells Sorel to walk home and that he has a long time to go. Sorel takes off and Sonny tells his goon that they should send Sorel's car back to him in pieces. They chuckle and move on.
Andreas meets Stefan on the docks. He tells Stefan, for the 100th time, that Helena will kill him if she finds out he is giving information. Stefan tells him he must know where Helena has taken Lucky. Andreas tells Stefan to an island, Ice Princess Island. Andreas leaves and Stefan makes a call to his pilot. He wants the plane ready. Just then, Taggert walks up and tells Stefan that he has an appointment with the P.C.P. D. Stefan says this is impossible, he has places to be. Taggert tells him he is under arrest.
Mac arrives home and immediately runs upstairs. In the meantime, we see a note on the desk for Felicia with his name on it. When Mac comes back down the stairs he reads Felicia's note. She loves him, but when she went to meet Mac at the pier, she overhead Helena again. She tells Mac in the note that Luke and Laura are walking into a trap.
