Port Charles Hotel:
AJ was sitting at the bar when Skye came in. They talked and AJ told her that he was really in love with his wife; she was the best thing to happen to him. She believed him and asked when he realized his feelings had changed. He said he didn't know. He was concerned about using her to get Michael and all of a sudden he realized he was in love with her. That's why he left the family. He asked Skye for a loan but she denied him. She wanted him to stand on his own two feet. They ordered coffee and then he left to go home to his wife. Edward, the crumb, came and told Skye she should believe in Jax. He gave her an envelope which she opened and found a picture of Jax putting a necklace around a woman's neck.
Elsewhere Ned and Alexis were talking and she said she was becoming such a hypochondriac since learning she was pregnant. Ned was comforting her and Kristina came in. Of course she thinks something is really going on between them. Alexis said nothing is going on. She had forgotten her appointment book and rushed out, leaving Ned to explain things to Kristina. They made up and danced.
Jason talked to Courtney. She mentioned AJ being his brother and he said AJ wasn't his brother. He thinks AJ is so bad but what he and Sonny do for a living is so great? She asked if it was because of the accident and he said no. AJ is just bad news. She left and Liz was there. They talked and he made it seem like she was following him around. She told him to get over himself. Benny came and told him that Roscoe might be gone but his men weren't and were going to retaliate. Jason grabbed Liz and rushed her to her studio. He told her not to call him and left her.
Later, when Liz was alone, two men came and grabbed Liz. Zander came to see her and heard her scream. He ran over to the window and saw two men taking her to a car and shove her in. He went and found Jason and told him, saying one of them he recognized as Roscoe's man. They ran out together.
Carly had Alexis' file in her lap, ready to snoop. Sonny came to see her and wanted to see the file, thinking it was hers. She stopped him from taking it, saying it wasn't hers. He asked why she had it and she said she thought it was hers at the time. She put it back on the desk. Dr. Bonds came and said she had the results of her tests. They went back to Carly's room and Carly caused a distraction knocking stuff over so Sonny had to pick it up and she could gesture to the Doctor not to say anything. She said everything was fine. She couldn't find anything that explained her headaches.
Alexis came to get her book and ran into Sonny. She said she had a client there and then the Doctor came out with her book. Sonny left and Carly was eavesdropping, as usual, and heard Alexis talk about being pregnant.
AJ came home and found Courtney there. He was so glad to see her. He told her about stealing from his family because he felt so bad about not having a job. It was his pride. He just hoped it wasn't too late. She said there's no such thing. Didn't he know how much she loved him. They hugged.
Webber's old house:
Laura had found the stairs her mother talked about and went up to the attic. Luke came up to her and touched her. She screamed. They were looking around and she saw stuff she remembered. They found her old wedding dress and it wasn't in very good shape. The veil had fared a little better.
Jason and Zander run back to Liz's studio after spending the night
running all over PC looking for her. Zander asks Jason what comes next.
Jason tells Zander to go away, but Zander says he doesn't take orders
anymore. Jason looks past Zander and sees a message written on the wall for
a meeting at noon. Zander says they can still make it, to which Jason tells
Zander he is not going.
Liz is in a dark and dirty place. She finds a match, which she lights to see her surroundings. She sees a headstone and realized she is some sort of crypt. One of Roscoe's thugs comes in. Liz lets him know people are looking for her. He lets her know she is there to make sure Jason does what they want. Liz stands up to the thug, but when he leaves her fear sets back in.
At noon, Jason is at the meeting place and the pay phone rings. Liz is on the other end and lets Jason know it is a trap. Roscoe's thug tells Jason he will call back in an hour and that when calls again, Jason better be alone.
Jason turns around and sees Zander. Zander instigates a fight with Jason. As Jason has him on the ground, Zander whispers to Jason that this will make Roscoe's men think they are really on different sides so they can work together. Jason starts to walk away and Zander runs after him and jumps him. As Jason is about to punch Zander, Taggert walks up and arrests them both.
At the station, Taggert and Mac harass Zander and Jason. They agree to let Zander go if he is willing to press charges against Jason. When Zander refuses, the police decided to hold them both for 24 hours.
Roscoe's thug yells at Liz for her bold move of saying what she did to Jason. He reminds her that Jason better do what he wants or she won't be leaving her new home.
When the hour is up, the boys are still in jail as the phone rings. Liz is seen at her crypt, pleading to get out.

As Gia is thanking Nikolas with a hug, Laura approaches the couple to talk about Gia and Deception. Gia decides she trusts both Nikolas and Laura and leaves.
Nikolas asks Laura to make it easy and release Gia from the Exclusive condition in her contract. Laura says she will make it simple-Gia must honor her contact or be sued. Nikolas proclaims that she can do what she wants-if she sues, Nikolas will pay whatever to take care of it. Laura gets up to walk away, but Nikolas calls her back. He apologized for treating this like business. He said one of the reason reasons he wanted Gia exploring her career, so they would be away from Lucky.
At Lucky's studio, Sarah came by to say hello. She runs into the lighting guy who says something about a meeting with Lucjy, but Sarah advises him that the meeting is canceled and that Lucky would reschedule for later. When Lucky comes it, Sarah is hiding being a spotlight. She instructs him to take off his shirt and tells him to close his eyes. When he opens them, Sarah is there, looking like she did that night when Lucky saw her in the barn.

Carly's back to her sneaky ways when she sneaks into Dr. Bond's office to look at Alexis' record. Unfortunately, she didn't find the answers she was looking for, because Alexis' file didn't contain information about the father of her baby. Suddenly, Carly hears someone at the door and hides behind a chair. That's when Dr. Bonds and Alexis come in to discuss Alexis' pregnancy. Carly listens in as Alexis explains that there is no way she is going to tell the father she's pregnant. Without even saying his name, Carly knows that Alexis is carrying Sonny's baby.

Jason and Zander are still waiting to be released that the PCPD head quarters. Taggert doesn't really have anything to hold them on, but he refuses to let them go. Jason calls Sonny and asks him to come down and post bail. When Sonny gets there, Taggert seems a little surprised that Sonny doesn't want to bail Zander as well. After the threat of pressing harassment charges (which were false, since Alexis told Sonny to get another lawyer because she was busy), Taggert releases Jason and Zander. Jason makes it to the pier just in time to receive a phone call.
Still convinced that he can be of some help to Liz, Zander goes off to find information. At a bar, he recognizes one of Liz's kidnappers and happens to know the person he is sitting with, so he goes up and starts a conversation. The kidnapper leaves in a hurry, but Zander stays and tries to convince his old friend that he wants to be of help to him and do something against Sonny and Jason. He mentions that Sonny has men all around town searching for some girl and offers to help with it. The guy says he'll make some calls, walks behind Zander and hits him over the head.
Liz is still locked away in the Quinn Mausoleum and she's becoming more desperate by the minute. She tried to escape by distracting her capture and pretending to be hurt, which didn't work. Having angered her captor, he refused to give her the batteries that he had brought for her slowly dying lamp. Once he leaves, Liz works at escaping by pulling rods out of the wall, but she isn't successful and instead comes face to face with her dead companions. When her captor comes back, he calls the pay phone that Jason is supposed to be at and tells him that he has to get information from Sonny and relay it to him or Liz will die. Given a chance to speak, Liz tries to tell Jason where she is, but she is cut off before she can finish.
Gia and Lucky are about to begin their photo shoot when Nikolas walks in, encouraging Gia to leave. Nikolas tries to take control of the situation, but Gia surprises everyone by making a decision.
