She added that she had gone to summer school, had gotten her high school diploma early, and was planning to take off and see the world. Dillon said he knew what she was really up to -- she was planning to go find Luke. "Um, yeah," Lulu lied.
At the Metro Court restaurant, Sonny tried to keep Kristina calm as Alexis suffered through a coughing spell. Once she settled down, Sonny demanded to know what Alexis was covering up. Alexis tried to pawn it off on stress and her conflicts with both the mayor and Ric, but Sonny wasn't buying. Alexis was impressed to see how well Sonny was doing and his renewed dedication to being a good father to his kids. Just then, the backup generator kicked in at the hotel. Alexis told Sonny she was better than she had been earlier and thanked him.
Alfred planned a special dinner for Nikolas and Emily at Wyndemere. Lucky, who was high, interrupted and admitted to them that he'd screwed up everything. Lucky got indignant with his brother, and Emily tried to assure her pal that Liz wouldn't leave him. She would once she found out he was having an affair with Maxie, he corrected. Nikolas refused to help his brother clean up the mess he'd created.
"I'm way beyond stoned," Lucky said as he laughed. He said he'd taken so many pills that day, he'd lost count. A stunned Lulu interrupted the melee and was floored to learn about Lucky's infidelity and his addiction. Nikolas kicked Lucky out, but Lulu begged Nikolas to go after him.
Liz showed up at Jason's penthouse, saying she had no place else to go. Liz could tell that Jason was drinking. She blurted out the truth about Lucky's fling and downed some tequila. "Sam's sleeping with Ric," he countered. Liz was shocked. Jason lamented that he had been trying to protect Sam by keeping her away, but all he'd ended up doing was hurting her.
Liz and Jason started talking about their past together, and Liz admitted that she had once been truly in love with him. Liz said she didn't want to think about anything that night. They kissed. Jason slipped off her shirt. She pulled his over his head, and they got horizontal behind the couch.
Post-sex, Jason gave Liz a bottle of water. They admitted their surprise, but neither had regrets and said it was the only night they'd spend together. As they cuddled on the couch, Liz mentioned that she wished her son could get to know Jason better, but his lifestyle was too dangerous. "You rescued me," she said as she smiled, but she stated, "I should go." "Only if you want to," Jason replied.
At the lake house, Sam woke up to a shirtless Ric and huffed, "Don't touch me." Sam told Ric they'd never sleep together again. She accused her stepfather of trying to one-up Jason by having sex with her and demanded to know if he felt any remorse at all for cheating on Alexis. Sam accused Ric of using her, and he shot back that she had no self-esteem.
"The only reason you slept with me is to get revenge on Jason," Sam insisted. Sam said she was going to tell Jason the truth, but Ric didn't believe her. "You've been working me since day one," Sam spat. She said, "You're a dead man. Start running."
Sonny returned home and found Ric sitting there in the dark. He confessed to sleeping with Sam. Sonny also accused his brother of using Sam to get back at Jason. He pointed out that Ric's priorities were messed up. "Take care of your family because that's the most important thing you've got," Sonny advised. Alexis went home, flashed back to seeing her husband with her daughter in a clinch, cried, and erupted in another coughing spell.
In a musical montage to end the show, Alexis cleaned up the sofa and pillows, Lucky drank more booze and popped more pills, and Jason asked Liz to stay with him then kissed her, just as Sam showed up at Jason's door.

Ric went home and saw Alexis there. He was surprised that Alexis was there and commented that he had not expected her to return home. She said that what had happened earlier needed to be discussed, and Ric replied that he was surprised because what she had said earlier to Sam was not in her character. Alexis replied that a lot that had happened that night had been a mistake.
Sam returned at that time and let Alexis know that she was just there to get her stuff and was leaving. Alexis said that as a family, they needed a lot of work, and Sam should not leave. Sam said that she felt that she needed to go because of the contempt she felt for her mother at times, and she didn't want Molly and Kristina to notice. Alexis let both of them know that she had decided to vacate the D.A. job to focus on her family, and Sam let her know that it did not change her decision.
After Sam had packed her things, and as she was leaving, Ric asked if she had told Jason about what had happened earlier. She replied that she hadn't, and Ric asked her not to share it with anyone.

Liz was grateful for the offer but felt that she should not run away from her problems and that she had to face them. She asked what he felt his future had in store for him, and he told her that while he was running the business, he could not think of having a family.

Nikolas and Emily were having a candlelight dinner when nanny Colleen looked in on them then went to a dresser in the hall and pulled out a bag, which contained a flashlight and sunscreen. She looked around then headed off in the other direction, looking as if she had a plan. Back in the dining room, Nikolas invited Emily to spend the night. Emily told Nikolas she couldn't because she was nowhere near over Sonny. They mused about how rebound relationships didn't work, and Emily didn't want to rebound from Sonny to Nikolas.

Georgie confronted Lulu on the docks. She told Lulu that she'd overheard Lulu's conversation on the phone with the clinic, asking about pregnancy tests, and knew what was going on. Lulu said she hadn't gotten pregnant on purpose and didn't know if she was pregnant or not because home pregnancy tests could be wrong. Georgie said she believed Lulu and offered to take her to the clinic to find out for sure if she was pregnant.
Lulu couldn't believe how understanding and calm Georgie was and accepted her offer of help. They went to the clinic and returned to the docks to discuss the fact that it was official: Lulu was pregnant with Dillon's baby. Georgie said Lulu had to tell Dillon the truth and that he would help her through it. Lulu didn't want to tell Dillon and feared she had ruined things again for Georgie and him.
Meanwhile, Dillon was confused and concerned when he stopped by Kelly's to see Georgie, who was supposed to work that day, and found out that she'd called to switch shifts with someone. Dillon also learned that Lulu had called in sick. Dillon explained that he was concerned about Georgie and Lulu having a run-in together and worried they had gone at it. He explained to Mike about how he'd hooked up with Lulu after he'd had problems with Georgie and that he had gotten back together with Georgie. Mike asked Dillon if he had been giving Lulu mixed messages about their friendship.
Dillon found Lulu on the docks later on and asked her if she was feeling better, since she'd called in sick for work. Lulu lied and told him she had a summer cold and hadn't felt up to working. Dillon turned to leave, and Lulu got up the nerve to tell him she didn't have a cold and that she'd found out she was pregnant. Dillon was shocked by the news.
Anna made a call to her superior, telling him that she hadn't gotten very far in her investigation of Alcazar and hoped she made progress soon. She said it didn't look good at that moment. Robin had lunch with Anna outside Kelly's. Anna asked her about her relationship with Patrick. Robin didn't want to go into it with her, and when Anna couldn't help but ask more nosy questions, Robin made the excuse she had to get back to work.
Meanwhile, Patrick paid Sonny a visit to ask him about how he'd ended up finding out about his patient, April, and paying her bills. Sonny said that Robin had stopped by to visit because she had been thinking about Stone and how his birthday was approaching soon. Sonny filled Patrick in on what Robin had told him about April, and he had decided to intervene on her behalf and help April. Sonny sang Robin's praises, and Patrick couldn't help but agree with him.
Later, Patrick showed up at Kelly's for lunch and met with Anna, who'd asked him to meet her there. Anna told him she admired him for what he had done for that patient and risking his life like that. She was friendly at first but started to ask him about his intentions toward Robin and wondered if he was worthy enough for her daughter. She asked him if he was a womanizer still and worried that he shared the same qualities as Robin's father, Robert. Robin walked in and stopped their conversation; she apologized to Patrick for her mother's interrogation of him. Patrick didn't seem to mind and told Anna that he was happy to talk to her.
Robin asked Anna to back off of Patrick and admitted that Patrick had told her the night before about how he could find himself loving her. Anna told her that he was already in love with her. In a loving way, Robin told her to stop interfering. Later, Robin apologized again for her mother and said she thought that Anna was very different from herself. Patrick agreed there were differences between them but that she shared a lot of amazing qualities with Anna. That touched Robin's heart.
Ric showed up at Kelly's and found Sam there. Sam had many regrets about their one-night stand and didn't think he did. Ric suggested that maybe she should leave town and start over. Meanwhile, Alcazar showed up at Alexis' office and demanded that she get an arrest warrant for Skye because she had left the state with his unborn child, and he considered that kidnapping. Alexis was very unsympathetic, since she agreed with Skye for leaving town and protecting her unborn baby from his line of business where she could get killed.
Alcazar threatened to call the mayor and complain to him about how she wasn't doing her job and should be dismissed as D.A. Alexis told him he could call the mayor and complain but that she didn't think the mayor would side with him on the issue. Alexis started another coughing fit, and Alcazar thought she was doing it for theatrics.
Ric entered Alexis' office and saw Alcazar grabbing her arm. Ric told Alcazar to leave Alexis alone and asked her if he was upsetting her. Lorenzo backed off and left after accusing Alexis of faking. Ric asked her if she was okay. She told him she'd overdramatized her coughing to try to get him to leave. Ric thought there was more going on with her that she wasn't telling him. Alexis claimed her allergies were acting up and thought there was something in the building that was causing it. Alexis dismissed Ric by getting on the phone with the mayor to warn him about Alcazar. Ric just left.
Later, Sam showed up at Sonny's to talk to him. Sonny told her he already knew about her night with Ric, since he had stopped by and told him, asking him for protection from Jason, since Ric had thought she was going to go straight to Jason to tell him. Sam said she hadn't told Jason about it and had stopped by to ask Sonny about Jason and what to do, since he knew Jason the best. Sonny suggested she just be honest and tell Jason and Alexis. Sonny thought that Jason would forgive her. Sam didn't think Jason or Alexis would forgive her for what she had done and told him about how Alexis had treated her like she was trash. Sam decided she was going to leave town instead, since she couldn't stand to be in close proximity to Ric on a daily basis.
Meanwhile, Jason and Liz woke up together in his bed. Liz told him she thought her marriage was over and that she couldn't allow her son to live in an environment where her husband was acting so irrationally. Jason offered to be there for her if she needed him. Meanwhile, Lucky continued to drink himself into a stupor on the couch at the apartment. Liz headed home and couldn't get the image of him and Maxie out of her mind as she headed inside the apartment. She found no sign of Lucky and noticed his gun was not in his holster.
Later, Jason got called in to see Alexis at her office. Alexis asked Jason not to tell Sam or Ric about how he'd had to take her to the hospital after her coughing episode at the lake house. Jason told her he wouldn't volunteer that information to them but wouldn't lie if they asked him. Alexis told him she had gone to the doctor and that what she had wasn't serious. Jason told her he knew she was lying, but it was her life and her choice.
Jason went home, and Sam showed up at his penthouse. She told him she was leaving town and was there to say goodbye. She admitted to him that she'd slept with Ric. Jason surprised her when he told her he already knew. Sonny showed up to see Alexis at her office. She was surprised to see him and thanked him for helping put Kristina to bed the previous night. Sonny told her he had stopped by to tell her he had received a visit from Sam and that she was leaving town.
