Skye tells him he can't protect her, because the woman after her is Laura. Luke asks if she actually saw Laura, but Skye admits she only saw that it was a woman with blond hair. Luke tells Skye that it couldn't possibly be Laura, because in order to stalk Skye, Laura would have to be upset at Skye's relationship with Luke, and Laura was no longer lucid enough to even remember Luke. Skye realizes that it must be someone else, until Lucky walks up to them holding a bracelet that Luke gave Laura. Luke recalls taking it to her the last time he visited, and he is stunned at the possibility that Laura might in fact be the one after Skye.

Meanwhile, at the convent in Costa Rica, as Sam describes the type of family she wants to adopt her child, the Mother Superior guesses that Sam is describing a family which Sam already knows. Rev. Mother suggests that Sam contact the family she described and offer them the opportunity to adopt her child. However, Samantha hastens to explain that she described the family of the father of her child and that, if Samantha's child were to enter that particular family, the mother of the father's other children would become so upset that she might take her own children and move far away from the children's father. At the same time, Jax explains to Justus that Jax wants sole custody of Sam's child because Jax is convinced that Jax is the father of Sam's child. When Justus objects to working as counsel for Jax at the same time that Justus serves as counsel for Sonny, Jax points out that getting at the truth about the paternity of Sam's child will protect Sonny as much as it will protect Jax. However, Courtney arrives at the court house and overhears the tail end of Jax's conversation with Justus. When Courtney demands to know what Jax and Justus are discussing, Jax avoids answering Courtney's questions about their pow-wow. Later, Jax meets with Edward at the Quartermaine Mansion. Edward offers to help Jax turn the tables on Tracy before the wedding IF Jax levels with Edward about the blackmail that Tracy is holding over Jax's head. However, Jax points out that Jax doesn't trust Edward any more than Jax trusts Tracy.

After Edward leaves, Tracy reminds Jax that she will be delighted to go to the police with what Tracy has learned about Skye and the missing police detective should Jax have a change of heart about their wedding plans.

Later, Carly meets Courtney in the park and confides to Courtney that Sonny has ordered Jason to find Sam.

However, Courtney observes that it appears to her that Carly has already lost her heart again to Sonny. Courtney urges Carly to level with Sonny about Carly's feelings for Sonny. Courtney goes on to suggest that Sonny might possibly be willing to admit that he, also, is still in love with Carly.

"Connor" repeats his unwillingness to become involved in anything that might be illegal. But Lorenzo assures Nikolas that "Connor" would only be acting as a courier and urges Nikolas to talk it over with his "wife" before coming to a final decision -- then Lorenzo leaves. After Lorenzo has gone, Mary is shocked when Nikolas insists that he STILL wants to work for Alcazar in spite of knowing what Alcazar does for a living. Mary is shocked when Nikolas admits that staying cooped up in Mary's cabin and being afraid to interact with other people leaves him feeling agitated and stifled. Later, Mary arrives at the Hospital and runs into Emily. When Mary sees Alcazar arrive, she tries to head him off, suspecting that Lorenzo now plans to tell Emily the truth about Nikolas. As Alcazar tries to convince Mary that Lorenzo has NO sinister purpose for wanting to employ Nikolas, Emily spots the two with their heads together and interrupts. Alcazar reminds Emily that he has invested heavily in Ned's record business and should be given an opportunity to convince Emily that he does NOT have ulterior motives for everything that he does. When Emily coldly reminds Lorenzo that she is currently on duty, Lorenzo convinces Emily to meet with him following her shift. Later, when Mary returns home to her cottage, she finds a note from Nikolas, announcing that he has gone for a walk. At the same time, Lorenzo and Emily meet in the park.

In court, Ric obtains permission from the Judge to treat Sonny as a hostile witness. Ric also points out Sonny's intimate knowledge of both Faith and Alexis. Ric manages to get Sonny to admit that he once hit the sheets with Faith's defense counsel. When Alexis tries to get Sonny dismissed as a witness because Sonny would know nothing about the workings on board The Haunted Star, Ric argues that Sonny can testify about Faith's history of criminal activity. The Judge rules in Ric's favor but orders Ric to get to the point. Ric declares that he is laying the foundation for the court to recognize that, in her cross examination of Sonny, the defense counsel MIGHT be pursuing a personal agenda to get even with Sonny because Sonny dumped Alexis following a one-night stand. When the Judge allows Ric to continue his questioning, Sonny declares that Faith told Sonny point blank that she was a partner in The Haunted Star for the purpose of laundering money -- but Faith never mentioned that Skye Quartermaine or Luke Spencer knew anything about Faith's illegal intentions. When the Judge orders a break, Faith takes Alexis aside and blasts her attorney for following her own agenda instead of trying to get Faith off the hook. However, Alexis assures Faith that everything will be fine. Later, Alexis gets Sonny alone and urges Sonny to let Alexis lead Sonny into a way to retract his statement. But Sonny is mildly amused by Alexis's suggestion that he recant his testimony. When Alexis warns Sonny that he is giving her no choice except to rip him apart on the stand, Sonny smugly advises Alexis that HER best bet would be to ask Sonny some harmless questions and then get him off the stand as soon as possible. After Alexis storms away, Jason arrives to report to Sonny that he tracked Samantha down at a convent in Costa Rica. Sonny explains that, since Sonny is tied up in court, Jason should fly to Costa Rica and get Sam. Jason confides that Carly has guessed that Jason is tracking Samantha down for Sonny. Jason reports that, although Carly doesn't yet know that Sam is pregnant, Sonny would be wise to let Carly know the facts NOW! When Faith's trial resumes, Alexis tries to push Sonny into an emotional outburst by hammering away about Sonny's hot temper and claustrophobia, but the Judge agrees with Ric that Alexis' line of questioning is irrelevant. When Alexis brings up Sonny's arrests on Rico charges, Sonny smugly points out that he was never convicted on any of those charges because his lawyer always got him acquitted because his lawyer believe that Sonny was a good and principled man. When Ric gets a chance at redirect, Ric gets Sonny to identify Alexis as the lawyer who believed that Sonny was innocent of the Rico charges. Meanwhile, Faith again blasts Alexis for following Alexis' own agenda rather than trying to get Faith off the hook. Later, after the Judge has adjourned for the day, Alexis gets Ric alone at the court house and blasts Ric for constantly bringing up Alexis' one-night stand with Sonny in court. However, Ric accuses Alexis of deliberately picking fights with Ric because Alexis is secretly attracted to Ric! Faith watches as Alexis accuses Ric of merely being defensive about his impotent legal skills, but Ric counters by declaring that IF Alexis wants to ask Ric out for a drink, she should just go ahead and ask! After Alexis declares that she would rather die of thirst than share a drink with Ric and storms away, Faith corners Ric and accuses Ric of openly flirting with Alexis because Ric wants Alexis to like him! Ric avoids Faith's questions and walks away. At the same time, Jason arrives at the convent in Costa Rico. As Jason makes inquiries about Samantha McCall, the Mother Superior leaps to the conclusion that Jason is the father of Sam's baby and advises Jason that, IF he were willing to take Sam's baby, Sam might be willing to give the baby to Jason. Meanwhile, Sonny arrives home at the Penthouse and Carly immediately confronts Sonny with the news that Carly KNOWS that Sonny ordered Jason to search for Samantha. Sonny begins to try to explain to Carly that things with Sam have gotten extremely complicated. At the same time, in Costa Rico, the Mother Superior announces to Sam that the father of her child is waiting to see her. Although Sam declares that her baby's father is the LAST person she would want to see, the Mother Superior encourages Samantha to at least consult with the baby's father about the child's future. When the Mother Superior goes to get Jason, Samantha tries to slip away by climbing through a window -- but Jason arrives before Samantha can make good her escape -- and orders Sam to stay where she is!

Emily tells him she will not have a problem with him if he keeps away from her friends and family. Nikolas stays in the background and overhears their conversation. After Emily leaves, Nikolas makes a remark about how Emily doesn't seem to be a fan of his. Alcazar explains to Nikolas that Emily is loyal to her brother, who is a business rival of his. Nikolas and Alcazar were about to discuss business when Mary shows up and asks Alcazar if she could talk to "Connor" alone for a minute. Alcazar leaves for awhile.

Emily asks Lucky to keep an eye out for Mary and explains that Alcazar has taken a sudden interest in her and that worries her because of his illegal background. Lucky tells her that Mary seems to be a very strong person and can probably take care of herself. He asks Emily if she is trying too hard to keep her mind off Nikolas by worrying too much about her friends and family. Emily admits that it helps to be very busy and help others to keep her mind off Nikolas. Mary shows up at work later at the hospital. Emily apologizes to Mary for being overprotective of her and that she can like someone like Alcazar if she wants. Mary tells Emily that she appreciates her concern and that she use to be that way a lot too with her friends and family and that the only thing you can do is let others make their own decisions and hope for the best. Nikolas is given a briefcase by Alcazar in the park. Nikolas notices that there isn't much in the briefcase for him to deliver and asks Alcazar if this is a test. Alcazar tells him that he has every confidence in him to do this job but that he is going to start out with small jobs to make sure he can handle them before giving him more important work.

He grabs a glass and hurls it across the room and makes a big scene. The customers become startled by his outburst and move out of his way. Luke announces that he is closing the casino early and kicks everyone out. Everyone leaves except Skye who tries to calm him down and find out what is wrong. He refuses her help and tells her that he doesn't know what he is suppose to do, protect her or Laura. He takes off. Skye calls Lucky and informs him that Luke is drunk and took off and she is worried about him. She asks Lucky if he knows where Luke may have gone and asks for him to find him. Lucky agrees to go look for Luke and make sure he is alright. Luke goes to the park and runs into the gazebo, shouting for Laura. Nikolas is still at the park and hears him, unaware of his connection to Laura himself. He feels bad when he hears Luke calling out to Laura to come out of hiding and let him take care of her. He is about to go help Luke when he hears Lucky go over to him. Nikolas hides back in the trees when he spots that Lucky is a cop. Lucky asks him to stop what he is doing since getting drunk like this won't help Laura. Luke is resentful of Lucky's interference and refuses to go anywhere. He tells Lucky that he is the only person who Laura can come to and that he has always sheltered her from danger. Lucky persuades Luke to go with him to have some coffee at Kelly's and sober up. Luke goes with him. Later, Luke shows up at the casino to find Skye is still there cleaning up after his mess. He apologizes to her for getting drunk and scaring the customers away. She accepts his apology and asks him to tell her what is going on with him. She suggests that maybe they could draw Laura out of hiding and then he could help her then. Luke tells her that if Laura does come after her out of jealousy and tries to harm her then they may have to send her back into a catatonic state and maybe she would be sent to prison this time. He tells her that he doesn't know how he can protect the woman he loves. Skye assumes he is talking about Laura and can't help but be hurt by this.
Jax offers to help Courtney's new foundation for underprivileged children by putting his name in as a chairperson and to donate money. Tracy interferes and tells Courtney that Jax won't be helping her with her foundation and tries to get her to leave. Jax tells Tracy that she has no right to interfere with his business. Tracy tries to get him to change his mind about helping Courtney by pointing out that Courtney was once a stripper and has no experience running a business or a charitable foundation.

Sam tries to sneak out the window when she is told that the father of her child is outside the room waiting to see her. As she is trying to climb out the window, Jason comes in the room and stops her. She tells Jason that Sonny isn't going to want this baby when he finds out she is pregnant. Jason tells her that Sonny already knows she is pregnant and that Jax told him. He tells her that Jax thinks he could very well be the father of her child. Sam worries that Sonny must think she is a slut for sleeping with Jax that time and tries to explain that she slept with Jax and had unprotected sex with him when they both thought they were going to die in the hotel fire.

On the Haunted Star, Luke and Skye were being watched as Luke announced he was falling in love with Skye. Skye was shocked! Lucky arrived and believed he had proof that Laura was back in town; someone had broken into Luke's old club and trashed it. Also, the person left threats against Skye written in lipstick, and Rise (music full of bad memories for Luke and Laura) was playing on the sound system. Luke was furious that Lucky involved the police in the search for Laura. Luke returned to his office at the blues club and discovered a montage of photos, pictures of him and Laura, with the threat against Skye.
