Police Station:
Sonny was brought in, again, this time by the FBI. Agent Ford listed all the charges against him but told him that he would make him a deal. Sonny would give him names, etc and he would be free forever. Sonny didn't co-operate. He said he knew nothing, wouldn't give him anything till he found out who set him up. Carly went to see him and he asked how she knew he was there. He told her to go home to Michael but she stayed. Roy showed up and said he could say who set him up.

Hospital:
staircase on fourth floor:
Carly met up with Roy and asked how things went. Roy told her not how they were supposed to. After she left he punched the wall in frustration. Melissa saw and was looking at his hand. He was feeling guilty, just like with her brother. They were deep in conversation and didn't see Bobbie watching them.
Bobbie's room:
Felicia was trying to get Bobbie to rest but Bobbie was too wound up. Felicia suggested she give Bobbie a manicure and was looking in her purse for a suitable color nail polish. Bobbie said she had one in her purse, which was in her locker downstairs. She went to get it and saw Roy and Melissa. Later she told Felicia she was going to trust Roy no matter what Melissa was up to. Felicia was polishing her nails and talking to her when she noticed Bobbie had fallen asleep.

Footbridge into Canada:
Emily had caught up to Zander and told him she always believed him, that he hadn't beat up her grandfather. He had blackmailed her into giving up Zander. He was mad that she had lied; he said even when he had kidnapped her, he didn't lie. She couldn't get him to understand she was only doing it so Edward would drop the charges. He wasn't impressed but stopped when she said she loved him.

The Quartermaine mansion:
Most of the drama was here again. Edward and Alan argued about what Edward had done with Skye. Alan yelled at Edward that instead of making him, Alan, do the responsible thing with Rae and Sky, he sold Skye to the highest bidder. Edward said Skye wasn't supposed to be sold, she was supposed to be adopted. Oops, that was a mistake. "You knew, you knew my daughter was alive?" Alan asked. Skye was listening at the door, unknown to the two men. Edward informed him they were both too young to be parents and Rae's parents agreed. Rae was listening by this time and came storming into the room, calling Edward a lousy, lying son of a bitch. The scenes following where she told them of her torment, thinking her child had died were phenomenal. I could see why Linda Dano won an Emmy. Could this be more Emmy material? Edward was trying to defend himself but there was no defence for making Rae think her child had died. After Edward left the room, at Alan's demand, Alan was hugging her in comfort and Monica walked in. Of course she overreacted. Monica and Rae had a showdown earlier where Rae told Monica she didn't want Alan, she had someone back in Llanview and showed Monica John's picture. Monica scoffed and asked if she was robbing the cradle.

Things were not going as planned with Sonny. Carly and Roy's plan really has backfired. Sonny was thoroughly pissed off that the FBI had caught him and secondly because he knows that someone has sold him out. Needless to say, he doesn't know it's his own wife (and another one of her plans to help him). Roy covered for Carly the best way he could. Carly put herself in jeopardy because she came down to the station before anyone called her. Sonny questioned her about it and she lied and said one of his men called her. Roy confessed that he brokered the deal with the FBI for Sonny's freedom by saying that Sonny would give up names. Sonny replied never. They took him off to the cell. Carly was erratic. She kept telling Roy that this was not supposed to happen. Could Sonny really go to prison? Yes, Roy replied. The FBI has him on serious charges and the only way out is to give up names. Roy also stressed that Carly needed to tread lightly when she speaks to Sonny because if he ever discovered her betrayal, their marriage and any relationship would be over.


At the hospital, Felicia overheard Luke asking Laura for help in the Helena situation and became really sad and jealous. Felicia does not understand where Luke is going and why this is bringing him closer to Laura. She quietly walked away to the break room where she ran into Mac. He was wearing a Groucho Marks disguise and made her laugh for a moment. He knew she was down and out about Luke yet he played it cool and talked about other things and the children. He offered to take her out to dinner and just take her mind off of her problems. Felicia however was still concerned about Bobbie and Lucas and wasn't really gunho about the dinner ideal. Mac offered to go check on Bobbie and let her know if there was any change. Meanwhile Felicia got up to leave the room and Luke walked up to her.

Emily was having a rough time with Zander. It seemed that Zander had relinquished all his new found qualities and was going back to just being an unintelligent jerk. Emily explained the whole Edward ordeal and how her grandfather had blacked mailed her. Yet, Zander was unfazed by the news. He was disappointed that she lied to him and that she did not trust him at all. He told her that if this was love he really wanted no part of it. Emily was crushed and asked if their relationship was over. Zander basically agreed. He told her he was tired of people telling him what to do and how to live his life. Emily told him to be careful how hard he pushed because she would go. She said baby please don't push me away, but it was already too late. His scary friend came upon the two and asked why she was there. Zander told him to meet him later and all was cool. Emily was stunned. She was in disbelief that Zander was returning to selling drugs. Zander said that since he had lost her, his life really didn't matter at all. Emily went on the defensive and began to yell at him. What are you doing? Is this what you want to do sell drugs? You went through the whole jail time and Sorel to come back and sell drugs? Zander said I can do what I want with my life now. And you want to sell drugs? I guess I meant nothing to you. What did you just want to get me into bed? Emily asked. Zander was offended at this moment and told Emily she just doesn't know him at all. She said that maybe my grandfather did us a favor. They both went their separate ways and they both looked back regretfully.

Lucky is in serious peril. Everyday he seems to be losing more of his normal state and the mind control is taking over. Lucky, Liz, Gia and Nikolas were at an arcade trying to cheer Nikolas up about losing his family and signing away the Cassadine name. Lucky was playing this one shooting game and kept seeing the face of Helena from which he derived pleasure in just shooting her repeatedly. No one really noticed that he was in a trance. Later they got together as a group and Liz was telling Nikolas that they were there for him and hoped this was helping to get his mind off his family woes. Lucky stood there in a trance, then said the weirdest thing, and walked off to game again. Everyone else just looked puzzled at what he said. Liz went over to help him. Nikolas thanked Gia for working together with Liz so they all could enjoy an outing together. Lucky started to fall deep into trance seeing Luke and Laura's faces in the game. He did stop shooting, but it was obvious that he was fighting the programming. Liz started to notice his far away look and brought him back to the living. At which time Lucky professed his love for her and got down on his knees and proposed marriage.

Carly goes to visit Sonny in jail, and sees him scared and trying hard to breathe. She starts to yell for the guard when Sonny calms her down and explains to her that if anyone found out he was claustrophobic they would try to use it against him. He is determined to figure out who set him up, and while Carly tries to convince him to focus on the deal that the FBI has offered him, he is adamant about uncover the snitch. Sonny tells her that he doesn't think Roy is just a mediator, and wasn't in a position to give the FBI any concrete evidence on Sonny's dealings. Taggert interrupts the two of them and agitates Carly when he suggests that the best thing Sonny can do is to become an informant for the FBI. Carly tells Taggert that Sonny is very loyal, and would never betray those close to him. After Taggert leaves, Carly tells Sonny that it could be Taggert who got the evidence on him, but Sonny disagrees. He tells Carly that when he got the call regarding the bomber, she was the only other person in the room. Carly says she has no idea, and professes her love and loyalty to him, telling him she will stand by him no matter what happens.

Luke finds Felicia in the waiting room where she tells him that she has decided to have dinner with Mac, but wants Luke to tell her not to go. Luke once again reiterates that he doesn't think he can give her the kind of love she wants, and he doesn't think he can ever love anyone again. He declares that he wants to continue their relationship, but can "give her a safe harbor." Felicia shares with him Mac's promise to wait for her, and informs him that she wants to go to dinner with Mac because she needs to be in a relationship in which she is an equal partner, and not just "riding on the fringes of someone else's life." A crying Felicia then leaves the waiting room.

While at the arcade, Lucky confesses the depth of his love and proposes to Liz. Surprised and confused by the proposal, she doesn't know what to say. Gia encourages Liz to say yes. Liz and Lucky leave for the park so that they can talk in private. Liz tells him that she is never going to leave him, and is puzzled by the desperation she senses in his words. Lucky sees Helena watching them from a near-by bush, and continues to tell Liz that he fears he will lose himself if she ever left him. He encourages her to ignore all the practicalities about money and family, and agree to marry him. She finally says yes.

Meanwhile, Helena goes back to her yacht, where her disks have been deciphered for her. Holding the Ice Princess, she confidently declares that not even love is a match for what she has in store for Lucky.

Nikolas and Gia leave the arcade and go back to the cottage where Nikolas informs Gia of his suspicions regarding Lucky's strange behavior. He wants to find out what is going on, and is convinced that Helena has something to do with it. Gia, who is unaware of what Helena did to Lucky, tells Nikolas that she will help him with any battle he wants to fight. Touched and impressed by her bravado, Nikolas tells her he loves her. Surprised, Gia says she is scared of being hurt, but Nikolas assures her that he has no intention of ever hurting her.

Scotty takes Laura out to the arcade for an evening of fun, and teaches her how to play pinball. He tells her that he thinks about her all the time, and wants to pursue a relationship and a future with her. Laura hesitates, saying that she has made a lot of mistakes in the past, and doesn't want to make another one with him. She asks if she can have some time to think it over, and Scotty agrees on the condition that she tell him when she is ready.

by M.A.

Alan tried to get closer to Monica in light of all the turmoil in the family. Monica rebuffed him because she was furious over his connection to Rae. She believed that he was hoping for a reconcilition with his teenage love. Alan said everything he could to convince her otherwise, but Monica refused to hear him.

Rae interrupted a conversation between Edward and Skye when it sounded as though Skye was being sucked into her grandfather's manipulations. She warned Skye not to trust Edward because of his past and current misdeeds. When Skye berated Rae for interferring, Alan came in and commanded Skye to be kinder to her mother. Skye decided to leave the Quartermaine mansion, but Alan begged her to stay. As Monica eavesdropped, he told Skye that he was committed to getting to know her better and being a real father to her.

Bobbie and Tony struggled to find a cure for Lucas's life-threatening condition. When Lucas's fever kept spiking no matter what they did, Bobbie grew increasingly frustrated by their inability to help their son. Lucas started having seizures and Bobbie curled up in the bed with him to try to calm him down.

Helena attempted to wheedle information out of Melissa about Lucas's condition. Roy saw them talking and asked Melissa what Helena wanted. His suspicions were raised when Melissa told him what Helena asked for.

Carly gave Sonny the bad news that bail had been denied unless Sonny intended to take the FBI's deal. As they argued about it, AJ and Scott came in and served Carly custody papers. He intended to sue for custody of Michael. Sonny lunged at AJ through the bars and promised to exact retribution if AJ went near Michael. When they left, Carly told Sonny that the only way he could protect Michael was if he took the deal. Roy showed up and echoed Carly's statement. Sonny told them that he would take the deal if Roy found out who the snitch was. Carly pleaded with him to relent and finally, Sonny told Roy to have bail arranged. He was willing to deal with the FBI.

At the hospital...
Liz told Audrey that Lucky had proposed marriage. Audrey expressed her concern that Liz and Lucky were not ready to take such an enormous step in their relationship.

At a jewelry store...
Lucky took Nikolas with him to look for an engagement ring for Liz, but Lucky seemed to go into a trace and became agitated when he saw the diamonds.

Somewhere in the hospital basement...
Helena stated that this was the day she had waited for.

At the hospital...
Roy arrived just as Lucas began having a seizure. Bobbie became hysterical and Roy took her out of the room so Tony could try to help Lucas. Roy tried to comfort Bobbie.

At the penthouse...
Carly brought Sonny home from the police station. Sonny asked Carly who she thought would turn him into the FBI and how she thought Roy got mixed up in the situation. Carly tried to take Sonny's mind off of the ordeal and went upstairs to run him a bath. When she had gone upstairs, Sonny went into her handbag, took out her cell phone, pressed redial, and Roy answered the call, confirming Sonny's suspicion of Carly. Mike arrived to check on Sonny. Sonny relived memories of his mother waiting for Mike to return when he was a little boy and asked Mike why and how he was able to leave them without looking back.

At a restaurant...
Felicia and Mac had dinner together. They decided to go for homemade ice cream, but Felicia received a call regarding Lucas' condition. Felicia and Mac immediately headed for the hospital.

At the hospital...
Roy and Luke tried to comfort Bobbie. Tony came out to tell Bobbie that Lucas was not doing well. Roy told Luke that Helena had been asking Melissa about Lucas' condition earlier in the day. Tony visited with Lucas and tried to get him to open his eyes. Luke spoke to Tony and asked him if he had checked to see if Lucas had been poisoned. Tony called the lab and Luke went to find Helena. In the meantime, Lucas slipped into a coma. Luke found Helena in the hospital corridor and they did their little "cat and mouse" game trying to get information from each other. Luke threatened to kill Helena if she didn't tell him what she had done to Lucas. Mac arrived and pulled Luke off of Helena before he could get the information. After Mac went to check on Lucas, Luke told Felicia that he thought Helena had poisoned Lucas. In the waiting room, Nikolas told Liz that Lucky had freaked out in the jewelry store. When Liz down played the situation, Nikolas told her that he was concerned and they both wondered where Lucky could be. They parted ways to look for him in the hospital. Meanwhile, Lucky entered the rooftop of the hospital building. Nikolas found Lucky ready to jump from the rooftop and tried to talk him down.

At the penthouse...
Mike continued to explain to Sonny that he thought he had done the right thing by leaving Sonny and his mother because Mike knew he could not take care of them. Mike stated he wanted them to be free so they could find a life they both deserved. Mike said he could never be the man that he saw in Sonny's mother's eyes. After Mike left, Carly came downstairs and told Sonny that his bath was ready. Carly and Sonny shared what they each wanted from their lives. They reaffirmed their love for one another; however, Sonny was clearly still troubled and fighting with the fact that he knew Carly had betrayed him. Carly began to talk to Sonny about taking the deal that the FBI offered him. Sonny told Carly that he knew that she was the one that had betrayed him.

At the hospital...
Tony was approached by two gunmen in the hospital corridor and was taken to an unknown part of the hospital where Helena told him that she was going to show him something "very interesting."
