He expressed his frustration with her for cutting short their date but invited her in. Her eyes glistened with tears as she explained that two people she loved were about to destroy each other.

After a steamy sex session on the couch, Jax excused himself and Carly headed over to use the phone. On his desk, she came across the paternity test results identifying Nikolas as John's father.

Jason resonated with Liz when she described how she feels like lately, her life has been one step forward and one step back and there's nothing she can do to change it. Jason then informed Liz that he was taking over Sonny's business and that if Sonny wanted it back, he'd have to give up Emily. Liz was worried about all that Jason was giving up in his effort to protect Em. Jason asked Liz to be there for Emily through the turmoil that was surely to come.
In the Quartermaine study, Lulu again accused Tracy of truly loving Luke. Alan, Monica, Ned, Skye, Alcazar, Dillon and Georgie entered and grumbled that they wanted to get the wedding over with. Alice entered to perform the ceremony (she'd just been ordained by the Church of Online Divinity).... Over Robert's protests that he was due at his own wedding, Luke promised Holly by phone that he would come find her. After Luke got off the phone, he and Robert exulted that as soon as the nuptials were completed, the quicker they could get out of town and find the $50,000. Luke made it clear to Robert that he wanted a cut. Suddenly, though, Luke had a change of heart about going through with the wedding. Luke noted that in many ways, Tracy was the perfect wife for him, but the only time he'd ever said vows from the heart were to Laura. Tracy overheard him and ordered him to find a way to go through with it. She requested a moment alone with her groom; Robert complied. Luke then explained to Tracy that they needed to stall because Robert was becoming suspicious. Tracy ticked off the ways she'd expedited the ceremony but he said he needed more time to figure out what to say in his vows. Tracy didn't buy it. Luke begged her to go back downstairs and convince Scorpio that their union is legit. She remained suspicious but left the room anyway. Once the coast was clear, Luke attempted to climb out of the window, but was caught by Lulu. "There's been a change in plans," Luke gulped. He explained to Lulu that Holly was in trouble and needed his help. Lulu was unsympathetic and was aghast at the notion that Luke may have a thing for Holly. Luke denied it. Lulu tried to dissuade Luke from bolting and leaving her behind to suffer Tracy's wrath, but had no luck. He promised Lulu that he'd be back, then dispatched her downstairs to cover up his departure.... Downstairs, Tracy grumbled about the family's unwillingness to believe that Luke sincerely wants to renew his vows with her. Lulu came downstairs and said that her dad was tweaking his vows and would be done soon. Robert tried to rush upstairs to check on Luke but Alice blocked him.... Luke made another move to jump out the window, groaning that he was getting too old for this.... Robert insisted that something must be wrong and Tracy's eyes widened. "I've been left at the altar!" she bellowed. "Damn you, Luke Spencer!" Just then, Luke toppled out of the window.
Sonny met up with Benny's twin, Bernie, who delivered papers from Jason. Sonny prepared to sign them but Bernie said they'd already been signed. After reviewing the documents, Sonny had a bad reaction to all of his funds having been moved without his consent. He blew up at Bernie, who told Sonny that Morgan had authorized the transfer because Sonny's personal situation made him unfit to run the business. Sonny tried to keep his cool and informed Bernie that Jason and Bernie both worked for him. Bernie hedged that he actually worked for Jason. "We all do." "Then what are you still doing in my house?" Sonny shot back. Bernie took the hint and headed out. Sonny poured himself a stiff drink and tossed it back, then started smashing things. He then called Liz, who had walked back to the hospital with Jason, and she relayed the message to Jason that Sonny needed to see him immediately.... Liz apologized for blowing up at her fellow nurse, who reported the good news that Lucky's transfer had been cancelled. Liz beamed.
Jax came to the hospital to see his son. The baby in question was being cuddled by somebody else: Carly. Carly told the little boy that Nik was his real father. "What am I supposed to do?" she sighed, debating the pros and cons of keeping Jax's secret. As if on cue, Nik entered the nursery.
Jason came to Sonny's house and was surprised to see the kids there. Sonny had prepared a giant feast for him, Michael and Morgan. Jason took a seat at the table as Sonny proposed a toast to friendship.
