Alan tells her that he thought the business department was on top of things and that he didn't need to check with them. Alan feels that they need to make sure that Bobbie is protected at all costs since her career is most at risk if Durant wins his malpractice suit.

Luke overhears what she says about Bobbie and he isn't pleased. He comes in the room and tells Tracy that there is no way he is going to let the family use Bobbie as a scapegoat and make her fend for herself.

Skye watches them drink a toast to their deal and overhears Tracy tell Luke that she loves how he thinks. Meanwhile, at General Hospital, Alexis shows up with a court stenographer to meet Bobbie and Ric. Ric thinks that her request to have a deposition in Durant's room is highly irregular. Alexis tells him that her client is still in the hospital and has the right to be present during any deposition. Ric tells Bobbie that it won't take long and it will be over soon. They go into Durant's room. Alexis questions Bobbie about what happened during Durant's surgery. Bobbie admits that she clamped the artery after the resident froze even though the surgeon, Tony, never asked her to do that. She explains that Durant would have bled to death if she hadn't stepped in and clamped the artery. Alexis asks her if she knew that clamping the artery in the wrong way could cause paralysis. She also asks Bobbie how many times she has assisted in surgeries like that one. Bobbie tells her she has assisted in over a hundred such surgeries and paralysis was not a result. Alexis is just about to ask Bobbie if she purposely caused Durant's paralysis, when Luke storms into Durant's room and turns off the stenographer's laptop and tells them the "witch hunt" is over and grabs Bobbie. He tells Durant to back off of his sister and tells Alexis she should be ashamed of herself for defending Durant against his sister after he saved her life from Helena. He goes out of the room with Bobbie and asks her what is going on with her. She tells him that she was physically and emotionally exhausted with what was going on with Maxie and Georgie that night and that she didn't know Durant was in surgery that night. She tells Luke that she could have caused his paralysis that night when she clamped the artery when the resident froze. She tells Luke that she needs to take responsibility. Luke tells her that she shouldn't let Durant ruin the career she worked so hard to build. He tells Bobbie that he has a plan to help her and tells her to fight for her career. Bobbie goes back into Durant's room. Alexis asks her again if she purposely paralyzed Durant. Bobbie tells her that she didn't do anything wrong. Alexis tells her she has no more questions for her. Ric tries to escort Bobbie out of the room when Durant tells Bobbie that he is going to bleed the hospital dry and that she will lose her job and be out on the streets where she started. Ric asks the stenographer to make sure that Durant's statements go on the record. Ric leaves with Bobbie and tells her she did a good job. Alexis slams her notepad down on the bed and tells Durant he needs to learn to shut his mouth. Alexis finds Ric waiting for her outside of Durant's room. Ric asks Alexis why she is helping Durant go after the hospital, the same hospital that saved her daughter's life and her life. Alexis tells him that even jerks like Durant need to be represented and that it is just a job to her. Ric doesn't buy that excuse and tells her she is doing this so she can go up against him in court again or Durant has something big he is holding over her to get her to defend him. Alexis accuses Ric of not being able to accept the fact that she is moving on with her life and that it doesn't revolve around him. Ric tells her he hit a nerve and that he will not settle out of court. Meanwhile, Luke returns home to find Skye out on the patio, sulking.

Suddenly, Michael runs out of Dr. Thomas' office and runs into Jason's arms. He tells Jason he doesn't want to talk to him anymore. Jason takes Michael home.

She notices the CAT-scan x-rays and asks him what they are. He tells her they belong to Jason. She asks him what he is doing with them. He tells her he is comparing them to Michael's case. She tells him that their cases are nothing alike. Dr. Thomas tells her that he doesn't totally agree with that and comments that Jason's case resulted from physical trauma and Michael's is more from emotional trauma. He upsets Sam when he tells her that Jason lacks emotion and is incapable of feeling any kind of emotion. Sam tells him he is wrong and that Jason shows his love for Michael and her every day. Dr. Thomas tells her that the heart can be a mystery too. He asks her if she would be willing to persuade Michael to return to therapy again.
