He told her Jennifer Smith had taken over the business and she was the one holding him. She expected him to marry her. Laura broke out laughing and said maybe he should. She told him if they were to get married Jennifer would have to untie him and then he could get away.

Ned made her apologize and gravel; it was quite nice even if I say so myself. Kristina also informed Ned that he was 20 times the man Sonny could ever be. Ned told Kristina that he was not mad at her for saying that Alexis loves Sonny. Ned was angry because she made the assumption about him being stuck in the past. The two sat down on the couch.

Sonny probed Zander further about who had kissed his wife. Sonny asked, Zander why are you stalling? Zander was about to come forth when Carly stormed into Zander's room and demanded why Sonny was asking Zander who kissed her. Aren't we finished? Can't I just do the guy on the pool table like you mentioned to me before? What's up Sonny? Sonny asked Zander to leave and he complied after he asked Sonny not to trash Carly in his place. Sonny began to rag on Carly a little bit. He brought up the past and how self-destructive she had been. Sonny told her that he felt she was trying to ruin her life for some reason. Carly told him that she had waited long enough and she was ready to be with someone. Carly informed Sonny that she had kissed a stranger at a bar. She let him hit on her because he validated her as a woman. So what are you saying that that is self-destructive? Carly and Sonny became very close in proximity. It was quite clear that they still have the hots for one another; they just don't have the force to push them back into a relationship. Sonny opened the door and left. Zander came in and asked Carly what kind of games she was playing. Zander asked exactly how Sonny came by the knowledge that she was kissed at all. Carly admitted to telling Sonny because she was so upset with him. Zander informed Carly that he no longer wanted to play the poor stupid jerk that you use to get back at Sonny. Carly grabbed her purse and charged out of the room.
Sonny headed back home but he had to stop and see Alexis. She was waiting for him but not happy to see him. She asked him to stop trying to conceal that he was upset because his ex-wife kissed someone. Sonny denied being mad at all. OK Alexis said and OK Sonny said. Sonny turned to walk towards the door and Alexis told him to just leave with things up in the air. Sonny told her that she obviously was occupied so he would just leave. Alexis told him that since they were just client and attorney, just to clear up the relationship issue, she wanted him to go because she needed to be alone. As Sonny passed by on the way out he utter that you are alone to Alexis. Alexis' mouth dropped. She ran out into the hallway and told him thank you for the flowers.
Skye tried another plan to snag Jax to her side and to go after Sonny. She called Jax from the meat locker and asked for his help as if she was a damsel in distress. Jax told her to hang up the phone with him and dial 911. Skye wined so much that Jax had to go find her. Upon finding Skye, Jax insisted on her calling the police and giving a formal story as to the events that had transpired with Sonny's henchmen. Skye declined and told him that she was unsure about how many and also they wore sky masks (how convenient no!). As Skye was laying her story on thick, Jax noticed a cuff link on the floor. He picked it up and made no other reference to it. Jax took Skye to AJ's penthouse for safe keeping. Jax was stunned that they were there.
