She insists on seeing Michael and be allowed to take him home since Carly gave her permission to care for him while she is away.

Ric interrupts them and tells her that he is handing Michael over to social services now. She shields Michael's body with her own and refuses to hand him over to anyone and threatens to sue the department.

They leave. Brian goes over and makes a phone call to Ric to give him an update. Courtney comes downstairs and overhears Brian tell Ric that he has an update for him. She asks him what update he has for Ric. Brian tries to cover up his mistake by acting like he called Ric to chew him out for how he treated Michael. Courtney notices that one of Sonny's ledgers is wide open on his desk. She pretends not to notice and act like she believes Brian's explanation for calling Ric. She goes over to the desk and surprises Brian by saying that someone like him is too good to be true and points out the open ledger. Jason gets to the mental hospital and asks the nurse if he can see Carly. The nurse tells him that Carly requested that she not be disturbed by anyone. Jason gets suspicious and demands to see Carly.

Jason tells her he is going to get her out of there right now. She lets him pick her up and carry her thinking he is Alcazar. Jason carries her out of the room while her doctor has security called to stop him. Jason is heading toward the exit when Cameron shows up and tells him not to try to take her out. Jason brings her back to her room and asks Cameron for answers to why Carly was drugged. Cameron tells him that he never prescribed any drugs for her and didn't really want her to commit herself to begin with. Jason tells him that either he or the other doctor is lying and that he is taking Carly out of there. Cameron points to the window in Carly's room and asks him if he thinks it is a good idea when Jason sees Carly put her arm out lovingly and talk to herself as if someone is there with her. Carly hallucinates that Alcazar is there with her and he is telling her to come with him and not to trust Jason. Jason goes in to see her. A nurse comes in to inject Carly with another sedative and Jason walks in. Carly smiles at Jason but hallucinates that Alcazar is there telling her not to trust Jason who is keeping them apart.

He asks her why she would give Carly a sedative with such a high dosage and reminds her that Carly came here voluntarily and had herself committed.

Carly overhears the word Ferncliff and gets agitated again and says she won't go there and they can't make her. Cameron tries to assure her that she won't be going there. He threatens to report Dr. Grimes to the Medical Review Board for medical misconduct if he finds out she is giving Carly any more drugs without his consent.

She tells him she might sleep with him and accuse him of rape and that she will be able to manipulate him into doing what she wants. She starts to undress Jason. He grabs her hand and pushes it away. He pushes her out of the bed and runs out of the room. She calls out to the attendants to try to stop him. Cameron goes to see Courtney. He tells her what happened with Carly and what she did to Jason under the influence of the drugs. Courtney starts to really worry. Cameron gets a call from the hospital telling him that Jason took off and knocked out two guards in the process. He suggests that they call the police since he isn't safe being on the streets with that amount of sedative in his system. Courtney persuades him not to call the police because then they would have to explain how he got injected with the drug and Carly would get in trouble which is not what Jason would want. She tells him she will go out and look for him. Cameron tells her that usually people who are under the influence of a strong sedative like that will want to go to some place that is familiar to them and where they felt happiness in before. Courtney has a strong idea where he went. Faith visits Carly who is drowsy from sleep. Dr. Grimes comes in and injects another hallucinatory drug into Carly while Faith sits at her bedside. Carly starts to moan in her sleep after crying out when she is injected again. She calls Sonny's name out. Faith tells her that Alcazar is the man who loves her and that Sonny is gone and won't be coming back. Carly tells her that Sonny loves her and will come back for her. Faith gets annoyed when Carly continues to call out for Sonny and not Alcazar. Alcazar asks Max to go find Jason and insists on talking to him. Max just laughs at him and tells him Jason is too busy. Alcazar tells him that Jason promised to check in on his niece and make sure she was doing o.k. Max just shuts the door and locks it. Alcazar starts to bang on the door for the guard later. He overhears Sonny's guards talking about how Jason had to deal with a crisis at the hospital where Carly was committed and that she went over the edge. Jason shows up at Courtney and his old hideaway. Courtney shows up later and calls to him. Jason doesn't answer her at first. He comes out of the bathroom while she is sitting on the bed, concerned for him. He walks over to her. She hugs him in relief when she sees he is safe. He starts to kiss her passionately and tells her how happy he is to see her.
