Nikolas: "How do you live for love when the one you love is gone?"

Nikolas stands over Emily's body with the gun. He knows she would want him to be strong for Spencer's sake, but he can't do this without her. He sinks to the ground, still holding the gun. He tells her the person she expected him to be doesn't exist without her. Sam comes in and asks what happened. He tells her that he had another blackout. When he woke up he tried to revive Emily, but it was to no avail. She asks if anyone else knows, and he tells her that Jason and some other people know. He doesn't care, though. Liz gave him a shot to help ease the pain, but nothing will help the pain.

Mac talks on the phone saying that he wants everyone off the island as soon as possible. They found out a lot of information from Alexis, and now they're going to get to the island as soon as the winds die down. At the hospital, Dr. Ford recruits volunteers to help evacuate and treat the Spoon Island victims. Dr. Julian volunteers despite the risks.

As Luke has another heart attack, Tracy searches desperately for the pills. He tells her the purse is on the couch. She gets another pill and yells for help. Luke doesn't want her to leave him. Robin comes in to check on Luke. She notices the pill isn't helping him and shocks him with the defibrillator. After multiple shocks, Luke is back to normal. He actually tells Tracy to lighten up. Robin tells him he needs to take this seriously. If he has another heart attack, he will die. Tracy hears a helicopter approaching. When Robin leaves, Tracy thanks Luke. She's been so worried about him, she totally forgot about her back. He tells her to call her boy toy "Ramone" to help her with her back, but Tracy says the only hands she wants on her are his.

Kate tells the gunman that Sonny is dead. She won't let him desecrate his body. Suddenly, the man is shot by Sonny! Kate covers the body, and Sonny tries to get her to relax. He apologizes for the way his life has affected her. She tells him that as long as they are together she doesn't care about how his life has affected her. She notices that Sonny is shaking and tries to get him to relax. Kate wants to find a doctor, but Sonny tells her he just needs her. Kate gets very agitated when she realizes a helicopter has showed up, but she can't find it. Sonny tells her to stop worrying. He asks her what is worse: him getting shot or him telling her he loves her. She says both. She tells him that she has always loved him. Sonny thinks she doesn't mean it. He thinks the only reason she said it was because she's worried about him. She tells him no. She loves him. He thinks she would rather him work in a different profession, but she says she doesn't care. As long as she can be with him, she doesn't care what he does.

Jason tries to stall Anthony and tells him that he should leave. Liz jumps backwards and kicks Anthony in the leg. He falls and he and Jason struggle for the gun. Anthony jumps off the balcony. Liz and Jason go back inside. She tells him that all she could do was think of who would take care of her kids if something happened to her. He tells her that she is stronger than she thinks. She lays her head down on his shoulder.

Johnny finds Carly unconscious and starts giving her CPR. Lulu walks in and rushes over. She begs Carly to be ok. Carly starts to cough and Johnny gets her some water. Carly says someone came up from behind her. Johnny says it couldn't have been his father. When he walked in the room, the man ran off. He didn't see much of him, but he knows it wasn't his father. Carly can't believe she didn't see this coming. She tells them about the text messages. Logan comes over and still thinks that Johnny is making excuses for himself or his father. Jason comes in also and backs up Johnny's story. He tells the group that Anthony jumped over the ledge and is probably dead. If the fall didn't kill him, the shots surely did. It only happened 20 minutes ago, so there's no way he could have strangled Carly, too.

Liz walks in the room with Nikolas and sees him talking to Sam. Liz tries to stay out of the way, but Sam comes over and yells at her for leaving her best friend and Nikolas. They bicker about Jason and Lucky until Sam decides to leave to find Lucky.

Meanwhile, Anthony yells at Trevor to get him out of here. Trevor tells him no. Not this time. It's time for him to die. They have no use for each other anymore. Trevor tells his men to get off the island now. One man goes to get Anthony, but Trevor tell him no. He's on his own now. Johnny comes over and congratulates him. He couldn't have worked this out any better if he had killed Anthony himself. Anthony calls out for Johnny and he goes to his father. Anthony asks his son to take care of his roses and comments on how his eyes are just like his mother's eyes. Johnny goes back over to Trevor who tells him to say nothing when the cops arrive. Johnny says he's done with all of it. Jason comes over with his gun drawn. Johnny tries to stop him from shooting his dad, but Trevor tells him to let Morgan go down for murder. Mac comes over and tells Jason to put his gun down. The cops go over to Anthony's body and asked what happened. Jason tells them that he jumped off the ledge. They ask if that was before or after he was shot. Georgie, Maxie, Spinelli and Nadine come running over. Nadine offers to help with Anthony. Maxie tells Mac that Robin is inside helping Ric. Georgie reveals that Emily was killed. Mac goes over to Jason and offers his sympathy but asks how soon after Zacchara killed Emily did he try to kill Anthony? Johnny sneaks away while everyone is preoccupied. A police officer catches up with him later and tells him the commissioner was not done questioning him yet. Johnny says he's not saying anything until his lawyer is there. Suddenly, Trevor arrives and says he is the lawyer and will cooperate. The cop starts to ask questions, but Trevor keeps questioning him back. The police officer realizes that Trevor isn't going to let Johnny say anything. Once the cop leaves, Trevor praises Johnny and tells him to keep his guard up. They might be able to get through this and rule the world together! After Trevor leaves, Lulu comes out and asks Johnny what that was all about. Johnny says Trevor just wants to test the ring in his nose.

Dr. Julian comes in to help Luke get to the helicopter. Tracy starts to threaten Epiphany and Leo that she will sue if anything happens to her husband, but Epiphany starts yelling back at her. Before they start to leave, Luke asks about Lucky. He doesn't want to go anywhere without him.

Mac sees Sonny as he's being wheeled out and stops to question him. He asks what happened. Sonny says that Anthony Zacchara happened, but blame Trevor. He knew what was going on and he did nothing to stop it.

Liz tells Nikolas that a helicopter has come to the island. They will take Emily soon. Nikolas asks her to stay with Emily. He has something he needs to do. When he leaves, Liz talks to Emily and cries over losing her best friend. A cop comes in and asks about Emily. Liz gives him the details that she knows. She says Emily's fiancÚ asked that she stay with her. Carly and Jason come in and tell them what they know. The cop asks Jason why he keeps popping up everywhere.

At the hospital, Kate doesn't want to leave Sonny's side. Robin comes in and tells Sonny that a different doctor will be treating him, which he is ok with. Kate is just relieved that they are both alive. Sonny wants to see Jason or Carly before he goes in for surgery. She offers to give them a message since she thinks they are still on the island. He tells her not to worry about it. She feeds him ice chips as he talks about Emily. She was the sweetest, kindest person he knew. How could this have happened to her? It's his entire fault. He brought Anthony Zacchara's wrath down on her. Kate thinks this is her fault. If she hadn't come to Port Charles, Trevor wouldn't have followed her there. Sonny tells her he is going to let Anthony Zacchara take the full blame.

Robin watches as Leyla is brought in and Epiphany starts to help her. Robin goes to talk to Patrick and apologizes for deserting him. They compliment each other and comment how it's a miracle more people didn't die. One positive is that they were honest with each other. Robin says she is more at peace with their choices. Patrick tells her that if she wants a baby, she should go for it. He goes to talk to Leyla as Robin watches. He kisses her head when she tells him she doesn't know what she was thinking when she stepped in front of the bullet.

Tracy watches as Dr. Julian comes over and asks Luke how he's doing. He says he's a mess. Dr. Julian talks about the procedure he's going to do on Luke, and Tracy gets nervous and starts to ask for credentials. Luke calms her down, but when Dr. Julian leaves Luke asks her to watch out for Lulu if something happens to him. Tracy warns him not to make her a widow. Dr. Julian comes back and tells Tracy that Luke's heart is badly damaged. No money in the world will help if he doesn't stop drinking and smoking.

Nikolas talks to Nadine about how it was such a perfect moment when he proposed to Emily and she accepted. What has he done to her? Nadine tries to get him inside. She tells him he is in shock. Nikolas tells her there is no point in anything without Emily.

Lulu asks Johnny what he will do now that he is free from his father. He tries to apologize to her for everything that happened, but she tells him not to apologize for saving her life. Sam comes up to Lulu and asks her if she's seen Lucky. Lulu thought he was on the helicopter with her dad. Sam says no and tells her that he got into a fight with Liz and Jason. He went off after Anthony and hasn't been seen since then. She's worried.

Ric is not on the helicopter yet since he is stabilized. Trevor tells his son that he will be ok. Ric thinks it is interesting how his father has changed since the near death experience. Ric is taken to the hospital where he asks about Alexis. Dr. Ford comes in and tells him that Alexis is in much better shape than him right now. He still needs surgery. Ric notices that Skye is still with him and asks her why she stuck around. She tells him that they are both screw-ups. She wanted to stick around and help another lost soul. She leaves to go check on Alexis and tells her that Ric is asking about her. Alexis says that Skye can relay the message that she is alright. Skye thinks she is well enough to tell him herself. When Skye leaves, she overhears Dr. Julian talking about Mr. Spencer. She asks if it is Lucky or Luke. She is stunned to learn that Luke had a heart attack. She goes in to visit Luke who is just waking up from surgery. He starts to flirt with her, but Tracy makes Skye leave. She is furious that he is trying to flirt while he's just recovering from surgery. He tells her that he's saving all of it just for her. Lulu comes by to see her father and Tracy warns her not to say anything to upset him. Luke asks Lulu where Lucky is.

Skye leaves Luke's room and runs into Edward. He's there for a board meeting. She realizes he doesn't know that Emily has been murdered. When she tells him what happened, Edward breaks down. He tells her how he always tried to be like one particular man that he met in college. This man told him to do whatever it takes to become successful. One by one, disaster struck this man. Edward has become this man, and now he is paying the price. He tells Skye to get away from him and his poison.

Alexis goes to visit Ric and tells him that Molly wants to bring him dinner. He tells her that after watching his father, he's decided he wants to break the cycle. He wants to make peace with her. She's an amazing woman and it's time he treated her as such. She promises she will try not to hate him anymore for her daughter's sake.

Liz tells the police officer that Nikolas would never hurt Emily. It had to be Anthony that killed her. She tells them everything that happened. The officer asks Carly and Jason who arrived on the scene first. Jason says he did. All he saw was Nikolas holding his dead sister. The officer wants to know where Nikolas is now. Jason and Liz go over to Emily's body. She tells him she's going to stay with her. Jason is going to go tell Monica what happened before she hears it from someone else. When Liz is alone with Emily, she tells her how beautiful she was last night. All her dreams finally came true. She's not going to waste another minute of her life. Sam overhears as Liz tells Emily that she's going to follow her heart. Sam tells her she is still looking for Lucky. Liz suggests she tell Mac, but Sam erupts into a fit of anger again, blaming Liz for hurting Lucky. Nikolas walks in as they are putting Emily in a body bag. He starts yelling at them to get out of his house and hugs Emily's lifeless body. Sam tries to comfort him, but he pushes her away. Liz ends up comforting Nikolas as they take Emily's body away.

Mac questions Carly and finds out there are actually two killers on the loose. Jax and Jerry come in and find out what happened to Carly. Jax is upset and tells her he doesn't know what he would do without her. They hug but are interrupted when Jerry collapses. He is rushed in for Patrick to examine. They decide he needs to go to surgery right away. Jerry wants them to look at Carly first, though. Carly tells him to go ahead with his surgery. She goes to visit Sonny who wants to know what happened to her. She tells him she will explain everything later. She just wanted to make sure he was ok. She goes to check on Jax. After he leaves, Sonny tells Kate that she can go, also. She tells him she just wants to sleep with him and she lies down with him. Meanwhile, Carly catches up with Jax and hugs him. She tells him that they never know how much longer they're going to have. She doesn't want him to ever let her go.

Jason walks in as Monica hangs up from leaving a message for Emily. She realizes right away that something terrible has happened. He tells her that Emily was murdered last night, and it was probably Anthony Zacchara that killed her. Monica is devastated. She blames Jason for Emily's death and kicks him out. He stands outside the door and listens to her cry and collapse on the ground.

Nikolas sits alone in the empty, wrecked ballroom. When Lesley brings Spencer over, Nikolas asks her to keep his son for a while longer. A distraught Nikolas ultimately convinces Lesley to take care of Spencer, explaining that he's in no shape to give the boy what he needs.

Still tormented by the events at Wyndemere, Carly tries to keep her emotions under control. Later, Carly decides that she, Jax, Mike and Bobbie should give the boys a perfect Thanksgiving Day.

As Luke and Tracy spend the holiday in his hospital room, he proves to be quite the handful. After Luke resists the idea of having more surgery, Tracy becomes overwhelmed with worry for him. When Lulu arrives at Logan's door, Scott makes a hasty exit. After Scott's departure, Lulu and Logan share an unconventional Thanksgiving together.

At the same time, Skye arrives at the mansion with Lila Rae to visit Monica.

Although yearning for one another, Patrick and Robin go their separate ways on the holiday. With Mac's blessing, Maxie invites Coop to dinner. Meanwhile, Georgie invites Spinelli, who's still as oblivious as ever about her feelings for him. Maxie and Coop later agree to try again.
