Sonny accused Suzanne of having an agenda. She assured Sonny that if he doesn't want to raise Lucian, she will give him a safe life away from the mob. Suzanne warned Sonny that his life of violence will drive Brenda away. "I'm not going to manipulate my wife into giving you her kid," Sonny huffed. Suzanne told Sonny that if she wanted Lucian all to herself, then why would she have brought Lucian to his mother? Sonny replied that he doesn't understand how Suzanne could be so friendly with the woman who killed her son.

Elizabeth showed up at Lucky's apartment and found him bonding with Nikolas. With the paternity test results behind her back, she said she needed to apologize. Lucky said he was the one who should apologize for enabling Luke. Losing her nerve, Liz slipped the envelope into her purse. Nikolas took Liz home, where Maxie surprised them. "I see you told Nikolas," Maxie blurted. "Tell me what?" he asked. Maxie quickly covered and Nik left. Liz explained that she wanted to tell the truth but didn't because she didn't want to cause a rift between the brothers now that they made amends.
Siobhan stopped by Lucky's to take him out, but he wasn't really in the mood. However, he reconsidered, which made Siobhan smile. Lucky thanked Siobhan for reminding him that he's still alive. He stated he admired Siobhan's spirit, and pulled her into a kiss.
Michael went to see Jason and saw a fertility pamphlet on the desk. "Are you thinking about having a baby?" Michael asked. Jason explained it was Carly's idea. Michael asked Jason if he really wanted another child. Jason said he wasn't sure. Michael assured Jason he'd be a great dad.

Maxie called Matt over to vent about her frustration with Elizabeth. Maxie hated keeping such a major secret; Matt was proud of Maxie for keeping her mouth shut.
At Wyndemere, Nikolas spent some quality time with Aiden, and expressed how grateful he was to have his son in his life. Nikolas returned to Liz's and noted that Spencer and Aiden were the best things to ever happen to him. When Liz went to get some wine, Nikolas spied the envelope with the test results. Liz returned and saw Nik holding the envelope. "I can explain," Liz whispered.

At Lucky's apartment, he and Siobhan were kissing when a plane ticket fell out of her jacket. Lucky picked it up, looked at it and asked, "Are you going back to Ireland?" Siobhan said that Liz needed Lucky and she's just in the way. "I want you to stay," Lucky insisted. Lucky then asked if Siobhan really wanted to leave, but she couldn't give him an answer. They ended up in a passionate kiss.
Elizabeth apologized to Nikolas when she found him holding the envelope with the paternity test results, but quickly realized he hadn't opened it. Nik promised to support Liz and Lucky, and vowed they'd get through it as a family. Liz admitted she still loved Lucky. Nik assured her that she still had his support, then left.
As Jason and Sam discussed her proceeding with fertility tests, she asked Jason if they were ready for their lives to change so drastically should they ever get pregnant. Just then, Carly interrupted and blurted the question, "Are you going to have a baby?"

After Sam left, Jason warned Carly that he believed Johnny was trying to pull Michael into the mob. Carly flipped out. "Don't fight with him or he'll push you away," Jason insisted regarding Michael.
At Pentonville, Johnny visited Anthony, who was upset to learn the guards held up the pictures of Anthony's rose garden. Anthony then revealed that he knew Johnny was bedding Lisa. Johnny inquired what Anthony's connection was to Abby's dead boyfriend, Brandon. "It's all you, Johnny," the insane Anthony chuckled.
Sam met Patrick at the hospital, who'd forgotten all about their appointment. Patrick confided that he was still carrying a load of guilt over what he did to Robin. After their talk, Sam had her check-up and Patrick said she was doing fine. Before she left, Patrick added that having a child together was the best thing that ever happened to he and Robin.
As Lisa lifted a patient's herbal supplements and lied about it, Kristina met up with Ethan at Kelly's. Krissy asked Ethan if he'd be her date for the prom.
