When Jason gets home, Spinelli tries to get information from him about Logan. He's worried that Jason might have already killed him. Jason tells him that he did not kill Logan.

He wants to talk about Sam and Lucky but he promised not to contact Liz again. When he gets done leaving the message for Emily, Jason notices that Spinelli is happy knowing that Logan will be ok.

Trevor storms out.
Ric comes over to see Sonny and he tells Ric it's a bad time right now. Ric asks if it is because his dad is in town and sleeping with Kate or if it's because Zaccara is headed to town.

Ric takes his threat seriously and calls Diane, Sonny's attorney over to talk to her. He tells her about his situation with his father.

She tells Sam that as far as she knows Ric has been estranged from his father for many years and that she worries about what kind of an effect he will have on Ric while being in town. Sam also mentions that a mobster named Zacchara is trying to move on Sonny's territory in Port Charles and is known to go after the families of his enemies. This worries Alexis because Kristina could be a target. She heads over to see Jason to find out about how much of a threat Zacchara is and if Kristina is in danger.

She walks over and introduces herself to Trevor. She tells him that she is Molly's half-sister so that makes them sort of like family. Trevor dismisses that idea of her being family and sits down to talk to her.

Trevor acts like he is sympathetic and tells her that Ric has never been a compassionate man. Trevor changes the subject and tells Sam that she looks very familiar and asks her if they have met before. Sam tells him they haven't but explains that he may have seen her on television since she hosts a program called "Everyday Heroes."
