Georgie finds the bottle of pills in Dillon's shirt pocket and reads the label when Dillon tries to stop her to explain. She reads that the pills are for erectile dysfunction. She realizes that Dillon must have taken one to help him perform and jumps to the conclusion that he has to take a pill in order to be turned on by her. She gets upset. Dillon tries to explain that he only took the pill in order to get started in a sexual relationship with her and that they could go from there and claims he loves her.

He takes her into the interrogation room. Sam tells him that Sonny is her baby's real father not Jason, who agreed to cover it up by switching the DNA tests at the hospital.

Ric tells him he found Sam and has arrested her and has plans to extradite her back to North Carolina later that day and advises him to come see her. Sonny tells her he has to go and help Sam and will be home later. Carly isn't too pleased by this news. Carly goes to pay Alexis a visit. Alexis asks her what she wants. Carly informs her that she is going to tell Sonny that Kristina is his daughter because Sonny just told her that Sam is carrying his child and she needs to come clean with him about what she knows if they have a chance to start over without any more lies. Alexis panics when she sees how determined Carly is to tell Sonny about Kristina. Alexis tells her that she can't do that to Kristina and that Sonny will file for custody of Kristina and the press will hear about it and Kristina will be plastered all over the papers. Carly tries to reassure her that Sonny will protect Kristina. Alexis doesn't care and tells Carly she doesn't want her daughter raised around thugs who could use her daughter to retaliate against Sonny. She pleads with Carly to protect Kristina and not tell Sonny and reminds her that she is a mother also and should protect her children and put them before everyone else. Carly doesn't give her an answer and leaves. Carly heads over to Courtney, who is home. She tells her that Sonny can be very convincing when he tells her he loves her and wants to start over again but then as soon as Sam needs help he is off helping her. Carly tells Courtney that Sam will always be around needing Sonny's help and she doesn't know if she can live with that and suggests leaving town with the boys and starting over somewhere else. Courtney asks her if she would really run off with the boys. Courtney tells her she can't make choices for her and advises her to try giving her marriage another chance since she still loves Sonny and he still loves her. Sonny arrives at the police station and asks Ric what he is up to. Ric tells him that Sam is going to be extradited back to North Carolina. Sonny gets Justus over there to help Sam and slow down the extradition. Sonny asks her if she tried to run away again and got caught. Sam tells him she wouldn't leave town and keep him from his own baby. Justus tells Sam that because she was absent for the rest of her trial he may have a case for an appeal but he needs to know the truth about her case first before making that decision. He asks her if she is covering for someone else. She lies and tells him no, she set the fire. Justus tells her he can't help her and that he will refer her to another criminal attorney and that he won't handle her case because he has been down that road before and lost dearly. Justus tells Sonny he can't defend her and that he needs to get someone who is above reproach and who hates him since his association with him will taint her case. He recommends Alexis to him. Sonny shows up later at Alexis' apartment. Alexis answers the door with Kristina in her arms. Alexis panics a little when she sees Sonny. She asks him what he came over for. He tells her this concerns the mother of his child. Ric comes back into the interrogation room and tells Sam that he didn't just luck out and find her since she was in a half-way house. He tells her that Carly was the one who told him where she was hiding.
Georgie told Dillon that she didn't ever want to have sex with him and that she has decided they should just be friends. Dillon countered that he did not want that. He let her know that the pills she had found were actually sugar pills and that he could perform without medication. Georgie still said she just wanted to be friends, so Dillon lied and said he might want to sleep with other girls, which made her jealous, which he admitted was his intent. She left him alone in his room, where he pondered what to do next, abstinence or the pursuit of Georgie in bed? The realization he came to was that it wasn't wrong to sleep with someone that you love.
At the police station, Ric told Sam that Carly gave up the safehouse location. He also said that Sonny might protect the child she was carrying but not her. Later, Justus informed Ric that Sam had new representation. Sonny arrived at Alexis' doorstep to speak to her about the "mother of his child." Alexis initially panicked, thinking Carly had told the truth about Kristina's parentage, and was relieved that Sonny had come to hire her to represent Sam. She turned him down at first. Sonny admitted he was trying to take care of Sam and the baby since Sam hadn't lied to him or tried to keep him from his baby. Sonny asked Alexis if she was afraid to go up against Ric. Later, Alexis entered the police station and told Ric she was Sam's new attorney. Ric commented that she and Sam had a lot in common, one of Sonny's mistresses representing another. Sonny let Sam know about her new attorney. Alexis filed a motion to keep Sam from being immediately sent to Bailey's Beach. Ric told Sonny to thank Carly for her help in apprehending Sam. Sam questioned Alexis about her motives for taking the case.
Courtney advised Carly not to throw away her chance with Sonny. Carly speculated that Ric had followed her to the safehouse, leading him to Sam's whereabouts. Sonny found Carly at the penthouse, and she admitted to calling the police in Bailey's Beach, some time back, about Sam being in Port Charles. She said that Sam being found at the safehouse may have been her fault, but she hadn't let it happen on purpose. He believed her, and they professed their love to one another, sealed with a passionate kiss.
