Sam's crying wolf regarding Manny caught up with her with Jason. However, Jason realized the window at Kelly's had been pried open from the outside, and he said that the fear in Sam's eyes was real. He believed she was indeed in danger. Jason said he wanted her to come home with him. Back a the penthouse, Jason made it clear to Sam that this arrangement was only for her safety and only temporary. The attraction between the two was still evident, as Jason tried to resist the urge to kiss Sam. Later, Sam asked Jason to join her for dinner, but he refused to eat, "And pretend everything's like it used to be." Lainey then showed up saying she was worried about Justus. He was supposed to meet her for dinner, but never showed. Jason said he'd go look for him.

At Casa de Corinthos, Sonny shoved Ric against the wall, accusing his brother of trying to gaslight him. Ric played dumb and said he didn't know what Sonny was talking about.

Ric reassured his brother that he only has Sonny's best interests in mind. After Ric left, Sonny asked Max to investigate Ric's recent activities. Emily showed up at Sonny's for dinner. Em could tell her man was upset about something. "Is it about Ric?" she asked. Sonny opened up to her about his suspicions. He recognized his paranoia and questioned his own judgment. Just then, the phone rang. It was Mike, telling him that Bobbie was hosting a welcome home party for John at Kelly's and he should make an appearance, for Courtney's sake. Emily and Sonny discussed the possibility of attending the shindig. They agreed to go, but Em insisted on driving. Sonny apologized for the whole dress incident from last week, and off they went.
Family and friends gathered at Kelly's for Bobbie's surprise party for Nik and John. As Bobbie asked Liz to whip up some brownies, Lucky pulled Maxie aside and asked her for more pills. Nik arrived and the gang all leapt out from behind the counter and shouted "surprise." Lesley grew teary when she held the baby and mentioned that Laura would be so proud of Nik and her new grandchild. Lulu got emotional thinking of her mom, but kept it to himself. Maxie slipped out of the party and met a drug dealer on the docks. The pills were $50 but she only had $20, and offered to "work things out." Meanwhile, Lucky told Liz he was fine without the pills, then told Liz he needed to go and left Kelly's. Lucky showed up just as the drug dealer attacked Maxie. Back at the party, Lulu told Nik that she's available for babysitting duties. Then, Luke arrived, bellowing, "All right, Barbara Jean. What's the big emergency?" He was stunned to see Nik holding a baby. "Nobody's calling me ‘Grandpa!'" grunted Luke. Sonny showed up with Emily, but a panic attack prevented him from entering the party.
Ric covered his tracks with the store he bought the dress from, stating under no circumstances were they to divulge to anyone who bought the dress.
Jason arrived at the docks and found a bullet casing and blood stains. He then left the scene. Lainey showed up later with the cops and noticed the number on the door. It wasn't 26 — the six was loose and upside down. It was 29, Justus's unlucky number. She feared the worst.... Diego went to put a case of wine into his car and when he opened the trunk, he was shocked to find Justus's body inside.... Jason went home and told Sam that he thinks Justus was ambushed and may be dead. He pointed out another person got shot because of him, and there's no way Sam can come back to him.
