Emily and Zander went to the hospital to check up on Edward, but they decided to leave for a while rather than run into AJ and Taggert, who were there too. Taggert came back to interview Edward about the mugging. Edward recalled seeing a man in front of the courthouse wearing an orange jacket. He claimed the man that he saw was a waiter at the coffee house where he had been earlier in the day. Taggert told Edward and AJ that the junkie who had the wallet had an alibi that checked out. Taggert left when Melissa came to check on her patient. While he was arguing that he didn't want any more tests done, Lila showed up, and expressed relief that here husband had apparently made a full recovery.
Melissa tried to evaluate Edwards' condition and was perplexed by the fact that Edward had no pain.
When he continued to insist that he was ready to go home and was fine, Melissa and AJ became suspicious.
The Q's were relieved when Edward was discharged, and thanked Melissa for her tender care.
As they were leaving, Emily and Zander returned. At first Alan was confrontational but later softened up after Zander apologized to the family for kidnapping Emily. Just as Alan finished inviting Zander to come back to the house with them to celebrate Edwards' homecoming, Taggert came back and claimed that there was an eyewitness who could identify Zander as the man who assaulted Edward!
The Quartermaines were stunned as Taggert arrested Zander and took him away.

Mike told Sonny, "You don't think you deserve to be a father!" As usual, Sonny became defensive and denied that Mike was on the right track. Mike tried his best to convince his son that he could protect Carly and the children. Sonny continued to express doubt.
Jason and Liz almost kissed, but Lucky showed up. After Lucky told her she didn't have to explain herself, Liz told him it was time for her to be honest with everyone, including herself. They left Jason there, where he then saw Carly, who needed to be consoled. She told him about the night of the Deception party and how her and Sonny connected. She expressed her frustration over him changing his mind about another baby. "He doesn't want me to be the mother of his child," Carly lamented. Jason told her that she needed to be patient and reminded her of her ability to change Sonny's mind on important matters. Carly realized that she would have to believe enough for the both of them.
Back at the loft Liz told Lucky the truth about her friendship with Jason. She explained that when everyone thought he was dead, she had an empty place in her heart that no one could fill. Jason was there for her at that time and helped her get through her loss. "I never stopped loving you, Lucky. But now I realize that I never stopped caring for Jason either." As their argument escalated Lucky said, "I can't shake this feeling that something's wrong and something bad is going to happen." He then stormed out of the loft while Liz begged him to stay. Liz then left the loft, hoping she would find lucky. Lucky went back to the wharf in tears.
