He confesses to her that the night Carly was drugged and Ric came and "rescued" her from Fowler, he followed them out of the bar to a motel. He watched through a window as Ric held Carly down on the bed and waited until she passed out and started to undress her. Courtney is disgusted that Coleman sat there and watched while Ric raped Carly and did nothing about it. Coleman tells her that he doesn't condone rape and was about to call 911 but then he noticed that Ric only undressed her and put her into bed and then pulled up two chairs and laid down and watched her sleep and didn't touch her.

Sonny fills him in on Ric Lansing claiming to be his brother and that he knew an awful lot about his mother and what happened at Martha's Vineyard.

He tells her he was telling the truth. Liz asks him that during any of the time he was plotting to destroy Sonny, did he ever think of dropping his vendetta against Sonny to just be happy with her instead. Ric tells her he did think about doing that several times but that in the end he couldn't stop his plot to get revenge on Sonny. Liz tells him that he didn't destroy Sonny but became just like him instead and then she leaves. Later, Carly comes to visit him. He lets her in. He offers her a drink and she takes it.
