At the Quartermaine mansion, Lulu was admiring a watch when Tracy walked in. Lulu quickly closed the jewelry box and then slipped the watch into her bag before Tracy noticed it. Tracy reminded Lulu that she had paid Lulu handsomely to find out what Luke was up to. Tracy expected a return on her money, but Lulu insisted that she needed more cash. Luke entered the parlor in time to hear Tracy threaten to send Lulu to boarding school in Siberia if Lulu didn't cooperate.
Luke ordered Tracy to leave his daughter alone. Lulu covered for Tracy by explaining that Tracy was upset because Lulu had borrowed one of Edward's cars without permission. Luke didn't seem concerned, so Tracy pointed out that Lulu could have had an accident. Luke was confident that the Quartermaines could afford the insurance on the vehicle. After Lulu left, Luke made it clear to Tracy that Lulu would not be sent to a boarding school. However, he offered to move out with Lulu if Tracy agreed to a divorce and to cut him a check for fifteen million dollars.
Tracy vowed to find out what Luke was up to; she warned him that she would snap him like an "old twig" if he crossed her. Luke decided to call Lorenzo after Tracy stormed out. Lorenzo was unavailable, so Luke left a message explaining that they needed to discuss Lorenzo's impending divorce and how it related to Lorenzo's ELQ stock.

Courtney was stunned when she opened her apartment door to find Nikolas standing on her doorstep, flanked by two burly bodyguards. The bodyguards explained that Jax had hired them. Courtney was not pleased. She ordered the men to leave her apartment and then invited Nikolas inside. Courtney's anger turned to concern when she realized that Nikolas' arm was in a cast and sling.
Nikolas assured Courtney that he was fine; he attributed the injury to a scuffle with Helena while he'd had his grandmother committed to an asylum in Europe. Nikolas assured Courtney that Helena was no longer a threat to Courtney or the baby.
At the hospital, Liz noticed Jax talking to Dr. Meadows. Liz approached Jax after Dr. Meadows walked away to make certain that Courtney and the baby were okay. Jax explained that he was just being cautious because he didn't want to lose another child. Jax then admitted that he didn't think that Courtney and Nikolas were truly in love or soul mates. Liz reminded Jax that it was Courtney's call to make, not his.
However, Liz admitted that she couldn't believe that it was Nikolas and Emily's one-year wedding anniversary. Jax was surprised by the news; he suggested that it was fate urging them to give Nikolas and Emily a push towards reconciliation. Jax tried to enlist Liz's help set up Nikolas and Emily, but Liz thought that Jax should stay out of it. Their talk was cut short when Courtney suddenly appeared. Courtney informed Jax that she didn't appreciate the bodyguards that he had hired.
Liz excused herself while Courtney and Jax continued to argue. Courtney resented Jax's controlling ways. She made it clear that it was unnecessary because Helena had been confined to a sanitarium. After Courtney left, Jax quickly tracked down Liz to persuade her to help his cause. A short time later, Courtney returned to her apartment, where Nikolas was waiting.
Courtney apologized for leaving, but she explained that she had wanted to let Jax know that Helena had been dealt with. Courtney sensed that something was troubling Nikolas. Nikolas admitted that it was the one-year anniversary of his marriage to Emily. Courtney assured Nikolas that she would understand if he wanted to be alone. Moments later, Nikolas' phone rang.
Liz explained to Nikolas that she wanted to take Cameron to Wyndemere to pick some holly. Cameron had been eager to see Nikolas, so Liz wanted to make certain that Nikolas would be there. Nikolas promised to wait for them in the courtyard and then ended the call.
At the hospital, Emily approached the nurses' station to talk to Liz about returning to medical school. Liz was happy for her friend, but she changed the subject by asking Emily for a favor. Liz explained to Emily that Cameron had left his favorite toy behind at Wyndemere while they had been picking holly, so she wondered if Emily would go to Spoon Island to fetch the toy.
On the piers, Jax met with Coleman. Jax wanted Coleman to go to Wyndemere when Emily and Nikolas met later that evening. A short time later, Emily arrived at Wyndemere to find Nikolas standing near the fountain in the courtyard. They both realized that Liz had set them up. Emily and Nikolas acknowledged the significance of the date as Coleman lurked nearby in the bushes with a camera in hand.
Jax stopped by Courtney's apartment to apologize for assigning bodyguards to watch over her. He admitted that he had gone overboard. Courtney argued that he always realized it after the fact. Jax conceded that Nikolas would never intentionally put Courtney or the baby in harm's way. Courtney appreciated Jax's comment. Jax feigned surprise when he pretended to notice that Nikolas wasn't there.

Lorenzo was surprised by the news, but agreed to cooperate because he didn't want his son harmed when the police caught up to Diego.
Diego took Georgie to a cabin in the woods. Diego explained that his father had recently purchased the cabin, so that he could spend some time with Diego as they bonded as father and son. Diego led Georgie to the fireplace, where he picked up an axe. Georgie drew back in fear, but Diego explained that he only intended to use the axe to break the handcuffs that bound them together. Diego revealed that he planned to set Georgie free, contact the police to let them know where they could find her, and then flee the country.
Georgie tried to convince Diego to turn himself in, but Diego refused to consider it. Georgie refused to give up, which made Diego wonder why she was so determined to help him after everything that he had done to her and others. Georgie conceded that she despised Diego for drugging and violating everyone who had hurt Sage. She didn't think there had been any excuse to justify what Diego had done, especially since he hadn't even known his cousin. However, Diego had been her friend once, so she wanted to help him.
Moments later, Mac called out over a bullhorn to warn Diego that the cabin was surrounded by the police. Mac urged Diego to give himself up. Georgie promised to stand by Diego's side, so he agreed to surrender. Georgie yelled out to Mac that Diego was unarmed and ready to walk out. As soon as Diego left the cabin, the police swarmed on him and then quickly placed him under arrest.
A short time later, Diego was led to the interrogation room at the police station, where he was left alone with Lorenzo. Lorenzo felt that he had failed his son, so he was determined to stand by Diego's side. Lorenzo realized that he had no right to expect a perfect son when Lorenzo was an imperfect man. Lorenzo wanted to be the father that Diego deserved. Diego was moved to tears as he walked into his father's outstretched arms. Lorenzo held his son tightly while Diego wept.
Jason and Sam returned to the Hawaiian beach house, where they had once stayed. It was just as they had remembered. Jason glanced around while Sam quietly wandered to the window to look out over the ocean. He approached her when he noticed that she was weeping. Jason worried that perhaps they shouldn't have returned to Hawaii.
Sam wiped away the tears as she pulled away from Jason. She realized that it was useless to cry over something that couldn't be changed, so she was determined to enjoy every moment that they had together. Jason smiled as he leaned down to kiss Sam. Later, Sam entered the living room with a tackle box that she had found. She announced that they were going to spend the day fishing.
Jason immediately grumbled, so Sam leaned down to pull off his boots and socks. She explained that walking barefoot in the sand was fun and sexy. Jason suggested that they simply shoot the fish instead of trying to catch them. Sam accused Jason of being afraid that she would catch more fish. Eventually, Sam managed to drag Jason to the boat.
Later, Sam gloated because she had caught their dinner while Jason hadn't caught anything. Her joy quickly turned to suspicion when she realized that it didn't bother Jason. Sam accused him of somehow rigging the fishing contest. Jason denied it, but Sam didn't believe him. They laughed as they entered the cottage and then tumbled to the floor in a passionate embrace.
A short time later, Jason wondered what was next on Sam's wish list. Sam made a couple of funny suggestions, which Jason quickly nixed. He clarified that he was interested to know what she truly wanted. Sam admitted that she would like to try to make a baby with him. Jason didn't think that he could leave Sam and their baby. He insisted that it wouldn't be fair to their child. Sam argued that it was inevitable that he would leave her because of his illness.
Sam was certain that after he was gone, she would be cold, empty, sad, and angry. However, a child would be her love, heart, and her constant reminder of him and what they had shared. Sam had accepted their fate, but she didn't want Jason to leave her alone. Jason looked deep into Sam's eyes, took her hand in his, and then led her to the bedroom.
