Sonny was alone and kept imagining he was seeing Carly. He left and was headed for the elevator, when he decided to go see Alexis instead.
He showed up and as good as demanded that Alexis get dressed, he would give her five minutes, and come out for dinner with him. She took him to task about the way he demanded, not asked. She told him she didn't want to get dressed and put on high heels. She got him to ask her nicely out to dinner and relented and went with him. They went to a restaurant where, it appears, mostly gangsters hang out. She wasn't too impressed. Jasmine came up to the table and was talking to Sonny, ignoring Alexis. Alexis and Sonny have a good rapport. She runs off at the mouth and he tells her to take a deep breath. Taggert came by to warn Sonny that Sorel had escaped lockup. Alexis did tell Sonny that if Sorel ended up dead and he got arrested, she would defend him.
They went back home and he was back inside the penthouse, alone. He started imagining Carly talking again, then there was a knock at the door and there she was. Meanwhile, Alexis called Benny and told him to get guards back to protect Sonny.
Liz was freaked out about the fire, bringing back bad memories of two years ago when another fire took Lucky away from her. She was afraid she had lost Lucky all over again.

The Hospital (underground):
Lucky went to see Helena and they were playing chess, but when she wanted him to say "use the king to protect the queen" he said no, he loved his father. Could it be hoped that Helena's hold on Lucky isn't as strong as she thought?

Zander went to the patio and surprised Emily who was writing in her journal. She was so shocked she dropped her journal. Zander picked the journal and Emily asked for it back. Zander asked why he could not read it and she said that he would probably think it was silly. He insisted in a nice way and she relinquished. He read it aloud and Emily wondered what he would think. In the journal, she mentioned how she always wanted what Lucky and Liz has and thought she would never know love like that. Emily told Zander she loved him and how she felt right now was so special that she did not have the words to even write them down. Zander also confirmed his love and how wonderful he felt about their relationship. Zander told Emily about his new job at the warehouse. Emily was cautious and told him that she worried about him working there, but Zander assured her that Sonny was keeping his job clean and was going to pay for his college.

If he wanted to get back with Laura he should not let anyone else get into her head. He needed to be there for her and be supportive.
Helena was shocked at Lucky's rebellion when she asked him to repeat the words take the king to protect your queen. Lucky was adamant about loving his father and he was not going to harm his father in any way. Helena ran for the ice princess and brought him back under control. She calmed him down and then she made him understand that she did not want to harm his father only to bring him peace. Lucky of course agreed and then said the words Helena wanted to hear. Once again Helena was pleased with herself.
Laura came upon Felicia and Luke on Helena's yacht. Felicia was trying to convince Luke that murdering Helena would not solve his problems. Luke was past the point of understanding and Laura agreed. Felicia then tried to convince them both to try other means because violence was not the answer. Luke was fed up and left. Laura was going to follow him but Felicia stopped her. Felicia asked Laura when she was going to give up Luke. Laura was stunned by Felicia's comments. Laura told her she was the reason she gave up on Luke in the first place. Felicia told Laura she loved Luke and she told Luke himself. Obviously he did not take it well, Laura said. Felicia told her that he said he wasn't sure that he could love again because his heart had been ripped to shreds. Laura was angry now and told Felicia she was taking no more of this. She would not stand this abuse and left.
Carly continued to hug Sonny but he did not hug back. He told her to get off him, but he let her in the house. Carly began as usual saying how they still loved each other and belonged together. She told Sonny how sorry she was but he should understand she did it for all the right reasons. She told him how it was the bomb that triggered her fear and coming up with the plan to get them out of harms way. Sonny told Carly that I don't know what your want and I can't give that to you. What do you think I hear or see when I look at you? I remember the bars slamming behind me in the jail. I remember being forced to be a snitch. I would rather cut out my heart than be a snitch or live in that way for the FBI. Carly you were my heart. Sonny repeated it several times and he stared and pointed at Carly. Now you are just dead to me. Sonny I was wrong but I had the best intentions Carly exclaimed. Carly we started out wrong. We betrayed our best friend and somehow we got over that and started a family. You have taken that away from me now. You have taken Michael away and me reading him a bedtime story every night. You have taken away my wife who waits for me to come home every evening. You have taken away my son who I make pancakes for every morning. You have taken away my wife who I wake up next to every morning in bed. The only thing that remains to me now is whom you use to be: a liar. Sonny we can come back from this because we still love each other. Please let me come back and let me love you. If I have to prove my love by dying then I would gladly do that. Carly, you can't come back from betrayal. You got to let it go now because there's nothing between us. Carly started begging again. It was awful and painful to watch. She grabbed Sonny's hand and then started caressing his face asking him to come upstairs so that they can be together. Let me show you how much I love you and how good we are together. We belong together Sonny
