called her once to tell her that he was on his way home and then a second
time to tell her that Brenda was still in danger and he needed to stay
awhile longer. Carly tells Sam to wake up and go to Rome and fight for her
man before she loses the best thing that ever happened to her. Sam
responds no you mean the best thing that ever happened to you. Sam says
she's not threatened by Brenda and she trusts Jason. She suggests Carly
try that. Carly says she knows that Jason says Brenda annoys him but that
there is some kind of bond there and she can't believe that Sam is okay
with Jason dropping everything to run off and protect Brenda. Sam tells
Carly that Brenda needed protection and Jason is good at that and she is
not insecure about it. She says Carly that she's the one who has her
panties in a twist and she understands why. Carly and Brenda are very
similar. They are both high maintenance women that Jason feels the need to
protect. Carly is insulted that Sam would compare her to Brenda. Sam says
that she knows Carly is so close to Jason so why doesn't she jump on a
plan to Rome to stake her claim. Carly leaves. Molly comes Sam's
apartment. Sam invites her to eat chinese food with her. Molly says she
ate already. Molly tells her how she brought Kristina senior pictures over
to Sonny's and Claire was there and they are now dating. Molly says how
upset Kristina is going to be once she finds out since Claire is the one
who put Micheal in prison. Molly is not happy about them dating either.

put Michael in prison. Sam tells Molly that she does believe that part.

Micheal wants to know if she knows that he was in prison. Sam says yes of course and she is ok with it. Sam says that she is a good girl and she thinks that michael is really going to like her. He thinks Sam must think he is a loser. She thinks that he is handling this better then most guys his age. Michael is unsure. Sam wants to know if this is what he wants. Jason apologizes for yelling at Brenda and tells her that he is dealing with some other stuff right now. She says that she should be able to deal with Sonny.

Suzanne says that Brenda listed Jason as her next of kin and her emergency contact. All she did was pick up the phone. She tells Sam that maybe she should ask Jason why he was on the next plane to Rome and taking over her life. Jason says that everyone knows that Brenda is a pain. Sam knows that Jason is doing his job and they have already talked about that. But what her problem is Suzanne dismissing her from his office. Suzanne responds with that Brenda's problem is more serious. The Balkin is a killer and Brenda shouldn't have to die because Sam doesn't want to share her boyfriend. Suzanne talks about celebrities bringing attention to causes. Brenda may be spoiled and headstrong, but she's golden. Sam says at least Suzanne admits that she is in it for the money. Suzanne tells Sam that she is in it for the money. Brenda generates publicity that generates donations and that makes a difference in the lives of thousands of children. She says that Brenda is high-maintenance, but so what? Sam wants to know why she can't keep Brenda in line.

Sam doesn't understand why he is apologizing. She talked to Candy and she said that everything went fine. Michael says that her real name is Abby and that they really talked. He thought it was going to work out but he blew it. Sam thinks he is overreacting. Michael thinks that Sam can't understand. Jason arrives at the Penthouse and he sees Micheal sitting outside his door. He tells him that he could have waited for him inside. Michael says that he didn't want to see Brenda or Sam. Jason tells him that Brenda is sleeping and Sam said that she was going to see Michael. Michael tells Jason that Sam tried to help him but he is a train wreck. Jason want's to know what happened. Michael tells Jason how that Sam's friend was wonderful and great and he thought it was going to work out but he blew it. Micheal says that he was nervous but that is normal right? Jason assures him that anyone would be nervous. Michael tells Jason they were dancing and she kissed him and he enjoyed it. Then she tried to take his shirt off and he flipped. For a second he wasn't in the hotel room anymore he was back in prison with Carter. Jason tells him that he can't be too hard on himself. that a lot of that stuff he felt was nerves, ant that it's all normal. Michael says no it is not normal he will never be normal. Michael tells Jason that he has tried to do what Jason said - to just get through everyday and let time pass but its not working. He is not strong enough. Jason wants him to give himself more time. He tells Michael that he has been through hell but he is a survivor. Michael responds all surviving means is that he is alive. It doesn't mean that he is actually living. He says that Ali is this nice, sweet, normal girl but she has no idea who I am and I can't tell her. Jason tells him that bad stuff happened to him but it doesn't have to define who Michael is. He tells him that he is strong, he says that he can heal. Every day, he is a step closer to getting his life back. But what he can't do is give up on himself because he will never give up on Michael.

Suzanne is more worried that she is on her way to tell Sonny she loves him. Lulu tells Sam she would have had the same reaction if Dante took off to rescue his ex.

Brenda says that she doesn't need his protection. She wants to know if he believes that there is a difference between being dead emotionally and being dead physically? Because she will tell him, there is not! She says that she has spent years of her life trying to forget Sonny and nothing has worked. And now she is here because of Jason. It's hurting her just like she told him it was going to hurt her. He says then don't go see Sonny. She says this is worse than you can imagine.

Jason walks into the office and hears Claire telling Michael that heís violating his parole for going to see Sonny. Jason says Michael is there to see him. Claire responds with that Sonny is a co-owner, so the chances of Michael running into his father are greatly increased. Jason points out that sonny' is not there so Michael is not violating anything. Claire tells Jason that this is not the first time that she has caught Michael. The last time he was with sonny and she chose to look the other way. She is not gonna do that again. Michael tells her that he wasn't there to see his dad. Claire think that it is much too convenient especially since Jason walked in here and handed the excuse to Michael. Jason wants to know why Claire is pushing this. He thought that she felt guilty for sending Michael to prison. She says she did, and she still does. Jason wants to know then why is she suddenly trying to send him back? She is trying uphold the law.Jason says that Michael is not breaking any laws by being here. Claire doesn't think that Judge Carroll would agree. Jason asks her why would she report it. He gave her full cooperation when she wanted information on Franco. She says that she has already repaid him by securing his release from prison. Michael wants to know if this mean that he is going back to prison. Later, Jason and Michael are talking and he tells Michael that Claire is just bluffing. Michael wants to know how does Jason know that.

Jason tells Michael to follow every one of the rules the judge gave him. Michael understands. He will do whatever Jason says, he is just worried that it isn't going to be enough. He thinks that Claire might decide to turn him in anyway. Jason will handle Claire. Diane comes into the office and tells Jason that Spinelli's behavior to her earlier today was so atrocious. Jason tells her that he is is sorry for what happened with Spinelli. He tells her that Claire caught Michael in this office. Diane says that this is not good. Jason says Michael was here for him, not Sonny but she said it didn't matter because it's Sonny's office. Diane says that it is called reasonable expectation. It's a very slippery legal slope. Jason explains to Diane that Claire has caught Michael with Sonny before. Diane says the fact that Michael was here at a place multiple times where he could reasonably expect to see his father is a direct violation of Judge Carroll's terms of release and if Claire chooses to file this writ, Michael could be on his way back to prison. Jason doesn't think that Claire would send Michael back to prison. Diane tells him to never underestimate a woman scorned. Jason wants to know what that means, She explains that Sonny crossed the line with Claire, took her down to the island for a weekend getaway, then when they come back, Brenda shows up, and she doesn't think she needs to tell him who won the battle of the brunettes. Jason says that he just talked to Brenda. She doesn't wanna be with sonny. Diane says Sonny most definitely wants to be with Brenda and Claire wants payback. She doesn't think she'll hesitate to use Michael to get it. Claire enters the office and tells Jason that he might want call his attorney to interpret this for him. He wants to know what it is. Claire tells him that it is a writ notifying the court that Michael violated his parole. As soon as she files it, Michael goes back to Pentonville. Jason tells her she can't do this to Michael. She tells him that he can stop her by giving her evidence and testimony against sonny. Jason tells her to forget it. Claire says maybe she didn't make herself clear, either Jason provides enough evidence to put sonny away for life, or Michael goes back to prison and this time, he won't be there to protect him.

Jason thinks that it is better then using Sam as a decoy. Sam can't see why. He says if the Balkan realizes that he's been double crossed Lucky's cover is blown and Sam and Lucky could die if something goes wrong. Why would he do that?

Jason and Sam are at the warehouse. Sam wants to know that when the Balkan dies that Lucky agrees to look the other way. Jason says that Interpol just wants Lucky to find and identify the Balkin and that will be easier with the Balkan dead. Lucky has agreed to leave Jason out all official reports. Sam thinks this could go wrong in a lot of ways. Jason says he'll get someone else if she's having second thoughts. Sam says its not about her but him. She use to think that he would never get caught or go to prison but after Michael, she gets it that anyone can go to prison. Sam apologizes that she is being selfish but she doesn't want to lose any more time with him. Jason hugs Sam. Sam is testing different ways to escape the warehouse but Jason keeps catching her. Sam says a lot of this will depend on Lucky. Jason tells Sam if something goes wrong he wants her to leave. Sam wants Jason to do the same. Jason tells Sam he is not going to leave her and Sam says neither is she. They kiss. Jason and Sam walk back into the Penthouse and tell Spinelli he found the perfect place for the ambush and if they get the Balkin there everything could be over that night. Spinelli tells Jason that Brenda is still having reservations about the plan. As Jason goes to try and talk to Brenda, Suzanne comes down and says that Brenda finally agreed to stay put. Sam goes up stairs to get ready. Suzanne tells Jason that Brenda is going to pull something. She gave in way too easily and that he better have a plan B or C or D. Dante is at the door. He asks where Brenda is. Suzanne introduces herself. Spinelli says that Brenda is upstairs brave and determined unlike Michael and hopes those attributes don't land her in Pentonville. There's awkward silence. Suzanne says a car will be there in half an hour and she leaves. Jason tells Dante that Brenda will be kidnapped. Dante says that Sam is taking a big risk. Jason says that Sam knows what to do. Jason needs Dante to keep Brenda there. He tells him that Brenda will try and talk him out of it and not to fall for it. Sam comes down the stairs as Brenda and asks what do they think.
Jason and Dante tell Sam she looks great as Brenda. Dante thinks they should bring in an undercover cop for this. Sam tells him she sell it long enough to get the Balkan out in the open. Jason says that this is Lucky's plan but it won't work if Dante can't control Brenda. Jason and Sam go over the plan with Dante. Dante says that Jason would kill Romin O'Reilly and the Balkan knows that. Dante says that Max and Milo are going to be the guards. Dante tells Max and Milo about the kidnapping plan. Jason doesn't like changing the plan on Lucky, but Sam agrees with Dante that it would be more believable if Lucky grabs her from Max and Milo versus Jason. Milo is eager to help. Jason warns Max and Milo that Lucky will demand that they turn Brenda over to him and he will be armed. Spinelli comes racing down the stairs that he must find op tra for Brenda. Dante asks if they know what to do and Max goes over the plan. Jason tells Sam to be careful and he'll meet her at the warehouse. Sam leaves with Max and Milo. Brenda comes down and says this isn't going to work. Jason and Brenda start arguing. Jason is leaving as Brenda says if something happens to him it will be his fault. Brenda shuts the door and says to Dante that he is the only one who knows why the Balkan is after her and they are the only ones that can stop this. Max and Milo walk out of the building with Sam as Lucky runs up and grabs her. Lucky tells them guns on the ground and Max and Milo do as he says. Lucky walks away with Sam. Max gets on the phone as Milo goes to get the car. Lucky brings Sam into the warehouse and Jason is there. He says the Balkan isn't there and Lucky unties Sam. Lucky says this was the easy part. Sam and Jason are hugging as Lucky gets on the phone letting the Balkan's man know he has Brenda and demands that the Balkan come for Brenda himself then hangs up. Sam asks if he went for it and Lucky says they'll find out soon enough. Lucky takes out duct tape from a bag and ties Sam's hands together as Jason watches. Lucky keeps the tape loose so Sam can move her hands. Jason ask if she check her gun and Sam says its loaded and her knife is in her boot. Jason wants Sam to shoot the Balkan before they can lay a hand on her. Jason and Sam say I love you and kiss. Jason goes to hide in the warehouse and Lucky puts a sack over Sam's head.
Sam, Jason and Lucky at the warehouse. Lucky pulls the sack off of Sam's head for a minute and apologizes but he wants it to look real. Sam reassures him that its fine and to put it back on. Lucky thinks the Balkan should be there any minute. Jason's cell phone rings. It is Spinelli telling him that Brenda is gone. Spinelli gives him teh details from the security camera. Jason is not worried because Brenda doesn't know where the setup is. Spinelli tells him that he told Brenda where they were. Jason tells Sam and Lucky that it is off because Brenda is on her way. Lucky is concerned because so is the Balkan. Jason thinks that someone blew Luckys cover. Lucky thinks that they can still save it. Jason, Sam and Lucky come around the corner and see Brenda with a gun and a man dead on the ground. Jason calms her and gets her to put the gun down. Dante wants to call it in to the PCPD. Jason doesn't. Dante tells him that it was self defense. He thinks that Lucky's cover has been blown. Lucky thinks that Dante is overreacting. Brenda is confused. Jason tells her that she needs to make a statement and then it will be over. Brenda is saying that she is not going to make a statement. She looks at Dante and says that they weren't ever going to tell anyone. Lucky still thinks they can make it work and wants to set up another meeting. Dante thinks that it is too risky. Jason says that they need to get out of there and that Brenda is in no shape to make a statement. He also says that Lucky can't risk any connection the them. Dante says that they have a dead body, it was self defense and he has to call it in. Lucky doesn't want him to because it will blow his cover. Dante says fine Lucky was never there and neither was Sam. He says that Jason was in the warehouse. He heard a noise, he came out here and found Brenda holding a gun. Lucky and Jason agree. Lucky and Sam leave. Dante calls it in. Brenda asks why he is doing this? She thought that they were never going to tell. Sam and Spinelli at the Penthouse. Sam tells him about Brenda shooting the guy. Spinelli is concerned about Brenda. Sam asks if he has any idea what this means? Brenda has ruined everything. She has compromised Lucky's cover. She got the PCPD involved. And She blew any chance of catching the Balkan. Jason, Brenda and Dante walking into the PCPD. Brenda is still talking about not wanting to make a statement and telling Dante she thought they weren't going to say anything. Jason asks Dante what the Brenda is talking about. Jax comes to the Penthouse to see how Brenda's doing. Sam tells him about how the shooting. Jax wants to know where Benda is? Sam tells him that she is at the PCPD with Jason. Jax says that Brenda can't stand Jason. Sam thinks that Jason and have a Brenda a connection that they aren't even aware of. Jason is on the phone with Diane. He needs her at the police station. He doesn't want Brenda saying anything to anybody. He tells Brenda that his lawyer is on her way. Brenda wants to know why she needs a lawyer. Jason says it is just as a precaution. He is gonna get her through this. He wants to know what happened. She says this time or the time before?

Jason wants Diane to get Brenda out of there. Sam and Spinelli at the Penthouse. She wants him to hack into the PCPD mainframe and see what's going on. Spinelli is moved by her concern for Brenda. Sam explains that it is Jason that she is worried about. Spinelli thinks Jason was kind to stay with Brenda. Sam says Brenda's lucky to have someone like Jason to protect her. She just didn't realize what a huge undertaking this was gonna be. Spinelli feels that it's not Brenda's fault. Sam thinks that Brenda is not the most stable person. It's really hard to help somebody like that. Spinelli wants Sam to muster up a bit of sympathy. Sam gets that Brenda's in danger. She just thinks there's more to the story here. Sam explains the shooting and how Brenda was acting. Spinelli is confused about why Brenda would confide in Dante. Sam tells him about the we would never tell stuff. Jason and Brenda are still at the PCPD. He tells her to tell Diane what happened. The more information she has, the sooner he can get her home. Brenda tells Diane she knew where the meeting was and what she was doing there. Diane agrees that they were right about not wanting Brenda to make a statement because it sounds like she knows far too much about some sort of ambush. Agent Bates comes and and wants to question Brenda. He wants Jason to leave but Brenda wants him there. Jason tries to stay but eventually has to leave. Diane tells the agent that Brenda has nothing to hide but is not able to make a statement right now. Outside the interragation room, Dante tells Jason that he doesn't like that she's in there with Bates. Jason says that she's got the shooting mixed up with something that happened in the past. He asks if Dante knows what she was talking about in the alley. Back at the Penthouse, Spinelli tells Sam that they are still at the PCPD. He has no other info. Spnnielli comments on that Sam must be exhausted. Sam says that she did have a big rush of adrenaline earlier but she must have crashed somewhere. She can barely keep her eyes open. Spinelli says that she should go to bed and he will keep monitoring the PCPD for any developments. Sam says that part of her wants to stay up and then she stops and says how it was really weird. Brenda was totally freaked out, and it was like Jason's voice was the only thing that could calm her down. Spinelli apologizes if anything he has said about Jason and Brenda revisiting their romance that never was has upset up her. Sam says that he has nothing to apologize for. She doesn't know what she is saying. She knows that Jason loves her. Spinelli tells that Jason does love her deeply and sincerely. Sam feels bad for Brenda. She's in a world of pain. She's got to be terrified and she's got a killer after her. Dante tells Jasons that he couldn't make any sense of what Brenda was saying. She was hysterical. Jason says that Brenda kept saying something about what happened before so he asked her about it. Dante wants to know what she said. Jason tells him that she started to tell him but she didn't finish. Diane gets Brenda released. Jason wants to take Brenda home. Diane wants to talk about the situation between Sonny and Claire. Jason says that is for Sonny to deal with he is taking Brenda home. Diane informs Brenda that she will need to come into the PCPD at some point to make a statement. Brenda thanks her and she and Jason leave. Brenda and Jason enter a dark Penthouse she comments that it looks like there alone. Jason tells her that Sam and Spinelli are probably sleeping. Brenda thanks him for helping her and that she knows that she blew his plan. He tells her to go to bed and they will discuss it in the morning. Jason goes upstairs to his room and looks out the window for a few seconds then he kicks off his shoes and cuddles in bed with a sleeping Sam. He hears a Brenda scream and he runs into her room. She is screaming from a nightmare. She gets up and hugs Jason. Sam walks in to see them hugging and then backs away and leaves the room.
Sam is at the Penthouse reading the paper when Jason comes down the stairs. She asks how Benda is. Jason says that she finally calmed down and fell asleep around 4. He didn't feel right leaving her. Sam says how she tried to stay up until he got home. Jason tells her that she looked so peaceful that he figured that he could tell her this morning what he would have said last night. It took real courage for her to be in that kind of situation. Sam thanks him and comments on how she wasn't in any danger after all. She wants to know how Brenda was at the police station. Jason says bad. Sam says that Brenda was kind of out of it. Jason tells Sam how she was too flipped out to make a statement and Diane showed up and got into an argument with agent Bates, then Claire showed up and then Sonny walked in. Sam says that is not good. Jason tells her that Diane thinks Claire's gonna rain hell down on Sonny. Jason thinks that there's something else going on. Sam says I love you. I'm so glad you just said that. I was thinking the same thing. Jason thinks that Brenda was too freaked out about what happened. Sam understands because she did just kill a man and that can be really traumatic. Jason knows but there was something off. Sam agrees. Spinelli coms in from an errand for Brenda. Jason tells him that Brenda is asleep. He wants Spinelli to sit down. Jason knows that Spinelli told Brenda where the ambush was taking place. Spinelli tries to justify his actions. Jason asks Spinelli if he trusts him with important information. Spinelli says yes andhe betrayed that trust. Jason thinks it might be easier if Spinelli goes to a hotel until Brenda goes back to Rome. Spinelli does not want to leave the Penthouse. He assures Jason that it will not happen again. Sam tells Jason that Spinelli has learned his lesson. Jason says that he can stay but he needs to keep his mouth shut. Jason and Sam in the alley where the shooting took place going over what happened. Jason doesn't exactly remember what he said to Brenda. He just wanted to get the gun because he didn't want her to pull the trigger but she said to Dante, "you said you were never gonna say anything." It doesn't make any sense to Sam either because Brenda and Dante barely even know each other. What Sam doesn't get is why didn't Dante just shoot the guy himself instead of taking to hand-to-hand combat. Jason thinks that maybe he didn't want Brenda to get caught in the crossfire. Sam doesn't know about that. She thinks that if it were lulu it would make sense because when you're in love, it's a little bit harder to keep things professional. Dante was doing his job so why didn't he call for backup or try and keep the situation a little cooler. Jason thinks Sam may be right. Dante wasn't anywhere near as flipped out as Brenda but he was definitely off. And Brenda kept saying about how they weren't gonna say anything about what happened before. At first, he thought she had Dante confused with somebody else but she said it again at the PCPD.S am wants to know what he's suggesting. Jason says whatever Brenda was freaking out about, how could Dante have been there. Jason walks into the Penthouse and catches Carly and Spinelli looking at his laptop. Carly says what would you say if you found out there was a past connection between Dante and Brenda?
Carly and Spinelli are talking about getting information on Brenda and Dante when Jason walks in. He wants to know what's going on. Carly says it would be great to find out if Dante and Brenda have a history unless Jason already knows something. Carly asks Jason he wants to find out if Brenda and Jason have been lying to everyone. Jason shuts Spinelli's laptop and says he's not allowed to give out and information unless Jason says so. Carly knows and she approves when it comes to Brenda because she has proven she can't be trusted. Carly can't believe that Jason doesn't want to find out if Dante was one of Brenda's guards. Jason wants to what does it matter. Carly says she can't believe he doesn't want to know if they are lying to him. Jason tells Carly he knows she wants revenge on Dante and he has bigger problems. Jason says that Brenda shot a guy. That she isn't as strong as Carly and he has to help her. Carly doesn't understand why Jason feels obligated to Brenda when she wouldn't do the same for him. Jason says someone is trying to hurt Brenda, so he shouldn't help? Carly wants to know who Jason would save Brenda or her if they were dangling over a pit of alligators? Jason doesn't answer so Carly says you would save me and leaves. Jason wants to know if she is onto something with Brenda and Dante. Spinelli tells Jason that it is true that Dante was her guard in 2007. Jason tells him to keep looking but not to tell Brenda anything. Spinelli says he has learned his lesson. Brenda walks in. She wants to know if they are discussing something she isn't suppose to hear. Jason tells her that he doesn't tell her certain things for a reason but Spinelli forgot for a moment. Brenda apologizes to Spinelli and that Jason should be mad at her. Spinelli begins saying how wonderful the Divine One is and Jason interrupts. Spinelli walks away. Brenda wants to know why Jason is mad as Spinelli. He says he's not; that she worked in over for information and almost got killed. Brenda says she's sorry. Jason asks where she went. Brenda says that she went to visit Edward and he should go to see him. Jason starts to argue with her but stops and wants to know about the other guy she shot. Brenda doesn't say anything. Jason says he will wait but she is going to have to tell him the truth because they lost the advantage they had with the Balkan and they are back to square one. Jason tells Brenda that she was very disoriented after she shot the guy and it was obvious she was mixed up in another shooting. Did someone else die? Dante is at the door. Jason says he wants to talk to him. Brenda apologizes to Dante for hitting him. Dantes says all that matters is she is safe. He tells them that Sonny is in custody. That they found proof that Sonny order the the car bombing on Johnny's car. Sonny's ok and that Diane is on it. Brenda wants to go see Sonny. Jason says fine. Dante starts to tell Jason that he heard the recording and that it was definitely Sonny. Jason stops him and says that there is a conflict of interest with Sonny and it would be better if they don't discuss him. Dante agrees. Dante asks if Jason heard from Lucky. That the Balkan's men have the girl Lucky brought home with him. Jason wants Dante to be honest with him. Jason wants to know how well Dante got to know Brenda when he was guarding him. Jason wants to know what happen in 2007 that got Brenda got mixed up with the guy she shot. Dante says he was one of four guards and was basically opening doors for her. Jason asks if they are hiding something. Dante gets a text. The Balkan wants to trade Lucky's girls for Brenda.
Lucky comes into the Penthouse. He says he check all the buildings and warehouses along the docks and there is no sign of the Siobhan or the Balkan's men. Dante tells him about the trade. Lucky wants to know when and Jason says its not going to happen. Lucky tells him that they will kill Siobhan. Jason says what do you think will happen to Brenda. Lucky doesn't think an innocent woman should die. He thinks they should agree to the trade and when they bring out Siobhan they ambush them. Jason says that Brenda is barely holding it together. Lucky says we're all barely holding it together. This is an enormous mess but if they don't do something Siobhan is as good as day. Jason says they have to find a way to stall. That the Balkan doesn't have any contacts here and maybe they can find out where he's hiding Siohban without using Brenda. Lucky's says that maybe isn't good enough; that they have to make the trade and it has to be Brenda. Lucky says that Siobhan was taken for leverage. Jason says that Brenda killed a man and is in no condition to go along with the plan. Dante reminds Lucky about how he felt the first time he shot someone. That even with all the training it changed him. That Lucky saw how messed up Brenda was. Lucky thinks Brenda could get thru it and that its not the first time she's been around bullets. Jason says that if something goes wrong and the Balkan grabs Brenda, they have no way of finding them and he won't risk it. Lucky wants to know why its ok to risk Siobhan's life. Dante says they're not getting anywhere and wants to leave. Lucky tells Jason if he doesn't show up with Brenda they will kill Siobhan. Dante says that won't happen. Lucky says that he won't let Siobhan die. Dante and Lucky leave. Jason is on the phone saying he wants the Balkan found before he makes another move on Brenda. Brenda comes in and Jason asks about Sonny. She tells him that Sonny planted a bomb that almost killed his daughter and his daughter is going to find out about it so how does he think Sonny is doing. Jason tells Brenda about Siobhan being kidnapped and that the Balkan wants to trade her for Brenda. Brenda wants to go ahead with the ambush. Jason says he's trying to stall long enough to find Siobhan and that its safer. Brenda asks about Siobhan. Jason says that the Balkan is just using her to get to Brenda and that it would be easier to stop him if he knew why the Balkan was after Brenda. Brenda wants to Jason but she can't. Jason brings up about Dante guarding her in New York. That she flipped out in the alley and slipped up with Dante. That she was remember something and he wants to know what it has to do with the Balkan. Brenda wants to tell him the truth but she can't so she wants to go along with the trade. Jason says its not that simple. That he's worried about this one and it could get ugly. Jason says that there's a good chance the ambush won't work and the Balkan will grab her and disappear. Brenda is willing to take the chance or maybe he won't let that happen. Jason says he can't make those guarantees. Brenda says that its a chance she will take. She doesn't want to see an innocent girl killed. Brenda tells Jason to come up with a great plan and to stop leaving her out of it. Lucky and Dante come back. Dante says that the Balkan set up a time and place for the trade. Lucky tells Brenda if the Balkan doesn't see her but Brenda says they'll see her. Dante tells Jason where the Balkan wants to meet and Jason says its not going to work; that its too wide open. Dante agrees. Jason mentions another place that has plenty of cover for a sniper. Lucky says they can't afford any misshots. Jason tells them that he's not going to let Brenda go to the warehouse so its that or nothing. Lucky goes to make the call and Jason asks Dante to stay with Brenda. Jason leaves. Brenda tells Dante that Jason knows she is hiding something from him. Brenda says that if anyone finds out the truth he will get hurt and no one can know what really happen. Jason and Lucky are in the hallway while Lucky is on the phone. He tells the guy they are on for the trade but the location has changed. The guys says he might want to rethink that and holds the phone up to Siobhan. Siobhan says that she hopes that they make the bastard pay. The guy pulls her hair and she screams. Lucky yells her name.
Jason and Lucky, Lucky is on the phone with one of Balkanís thugs. Lucky is arguing with the guy on the arrangements to trade Brenda and Siobhan. Lucky wants to know that Siobhan is ok. Jason wants Lucky to calm down. Lucky continues to argue on the phone. Jason understands that he is worried about Siobhan. Lucky tells Jason that she shouldn't be anywhere near this. It was his responsibility-Jason tells him unless you want to be responsible for one of us dying, you better get yourself under control. Dante assures Brenda that she has the numbers on her side. Cops and mobsters working together. That doesn't happen too often. The Balkan doesn't stand a chance.Lucky says Ok, he bit. We're meeting on the bluffs. Lucky asks Brenda if she is she is up for this. Brenda feels responsible for Siobhan being grabbed. Lucky doesn't want her to blame herself it is his fault that she was grabbed. Jason just wants to get it done. Brenda says all right, so are we walking into a trap? Jason wants to assume they are, so yes. Dante says that they have to be preemptive.Jason says that there is no room for error tonight He wants Brenda to do exactly what he says. She wants to know what the plan is. Her and Lucky will proceed to the designated spot. And then Dante and Jason will be in sniper position. The tell her that one wrong move and she can be in the line of fire. They are going over the plan and where everyone is going to be located. Dante wants to assume that the Balkan's going to have at least a couple of guys, maybe more, covering the rear. Jason wants Brenda to take cover as soon as the shooting starts. He tells her to hit the ground and not to move unless it is absolutely necessary. And if she has to move, he wants her to go backward, not forward. He does not want her in the line of fire. Brenda understands. Lucky is going to heading wherever Siobhan is. He is not going to leave her exposed. As soon as things go down, he is getting her out. Dante is trying to explain to Lucky, that they can't improvise here. Too many things-- Jason interrupts and says that the whole idea is to get people out alive. If Lucky goes chasing after Siobhan, he is going to draw fire and they can both end up dead. Lucky says that Jason and Dante are going to have to be quick and efficient, then. Dante wants to know what is going on with Lucky. He is a cop. He is supposed to shut down the emotions until the job is done. Lucky lets everyone know that he will shut down his emotions when Siobhan is safe. Dante is concerned if they should be worried about Lucky Jason already is.Lucky is bringing Brenda kicking and screaming to the spot of the meeting. Jason tells Dante not to go any further. It's important that he waits for Jason signal to fire. Dante says all they have to do now is wait. Dante lets Jason now that there is a incoming Northbound. All right, incoming. Northbound. The balkan's guys shows up and says Well, Brenda Barrett.Brenda tells him screw you.The man wants Lucky to let Brenda come to him.Lucky says Siobhan first. Marko asks Brenda if she gets it now? She is not as clever as she thought. Brenda says maybe you didn't hear me. Screw the Balkan, and you. Marko wants her to say that to his face. He knows what she did. Jason wants Dante to hold is fire. Marko asks Brenda how long did she think she could run?
Jason wants Dante to hold his fire. Marko asks Brenda how long did she think she could run. Brenda screams and charges him. Dante starts firing. Lucky rushes to save Siobhan as Jason and Dante take out all the Balkan's men. Jason runs up to Brenda and asks if she is ok and she says yes. Dante confirms that the men are dead. Jason tells him to get their cell phones. Spinelli might be able to get some information from them. Lucky wants to know what about the Balkan? Jason says if he was here he's long gone. He wants to know why Dante shot before he said to. Dante explains that he had to shoot the guy or he was gonna take off with Brenda. Jason tells Brenda that she wasn't supposed to move forward. She apologizies. Siobhan points out that with all the bodies the police will be askign questions. Lucky and Dante are the local police but point taken. They advise Jason that they are gonna have to call this in, so he needs to decide what he wants to do. Jason doesn't Brenda tied to another shooting. Lucky wants Siobhan to be in the clear as well. Dante tells Jason to take Brenda and Siobhan back to his place, that they were never there. Back at the Penthouse, Jason questions Siobhan about any call sher captor may have made. He made a couple. He spoke Croatian. She tended bar in Dubrovnik for a few months and she picked up enough of the language to know that he had instructions to get Brenda alive. Jason wants to know if she got a name or a location. Siobhan remembers him talking about an Aleksander but she has no idea who that is. Jason asks Brenda who Aleksander is. She starts arguing about not wanting to talk about it. Jason wants her to stop playing games. Siobhan goes to leave. Jason is going to send guards with her to look out for her. Jason wants the truth from Brenda. He says that she knows he is trying to help her He wants to know about Aleksander and lying is not an option.I f she tells him she will be breaking a promise. Jason wants to know who she is trying to protect. She takes promises very seriously and doesn't break them. Jason wants to know who she promised. She says he self. Jason can keep a secret and if she tells him then he can keep her safe. She isn't sure if she can trust him. He assures her that she can. Three years ago, she was in Manhattan. Jason says that's when Dante was guarding you. She insisted on going for a walk and Dante went with her. They went through an alley and he must have been following them because suddenly he appeared and he attacked Dante. Dante tried to pull out his gun but he knocked it out of Dante's hand. Jason wants to know who was following them. It was Aleksander. He attacked Dante. He started choking him. She picked up the gun and shot him. Jason asks what happened next? She asked Dante if he was dead and he said that he was and then she freaked out. She told Dante that Balkan would come after them and that he would kill them so Dante didn't report it. She says if this came out it would ruin Dante's entire life. Dante's the one who hid the body. Jason asks her if there is something she is not telling him. The Balkan has many guys who have died. What makes Aleksander so special? Jason asks if she knew Aleksander? She says they met in Europe and she hated him so she decided to date him It wasn't serious, at least not for her. It didn't take her long to figure out that he was a criminal and a liar about it. Jason asks if she confronted him. She just told him that her feelings had changed and she didn't want to see him anymore. He didn't like that very much. He started following her everywhere. So she went to the police. The police told her that Aleksander was on the short list. He was a major gangster involved in disgusting things. Interpol advised her to keep her distance from him so she took the job in New York. Aleksander followed her so Interpol got her protection. Jason says Dante. Brenda says then Aleksander showed up dead. Jason is confused about why the Balkan cares that they shot Aleksander? Brenda says because Aleksander is the Balkan's son.
Dante comes to the Penthouse. He wants to see Brenda. Jason lets him know Brenda already told him about killing Aleksandser. Dante explains why he covered the crime. Jason is angry that he protected Brenda but gave up Michael. Dante says he was trying to save Michael from living witht he guilt. Dante goes home. Sam comes to his loft. Sam has questions about Brenda and Dante's behavior on the bluffs. Dante says he had to take the shot or the guy would have taken Brenda. Sam questions how the shoot out happened and what was gained. she also questions Brenda's behavior in the alley. Dante covers. Sam knows something happened in Brenda's past and Brenda is holding out. She is upset that Jason is risking his life and doesn't know what is really going on. Suzanne comes to the Penthouse. Jason updates her on the shootout and Brenda admitting a connection to the Balkan. Jason thinks she knows more than she realizes. He questions her about how she met Brenda. She tells him abuot Brenda going to Africa and getting sick. Jason asks if she thinks Brenda was running from someone even then. Sam wants Dante to take a more active role in Brenda's protection and get more police help taking the burden off of Jason. Dante thinks Jason is doing the right thing. Jason asks Suzanne about previous threats from the Balkan. Suzanne says the more time that passes the more she realizes she doesn't really know Brenda. She talks about all she has learned about Brenda since the Balkan stuff started and then asks what else she is hiding. Sam comes to the Penthouse. She is upset. Jason asks if she is okay and she tells him about her conversation with Dante. She thinks Dante is lying. Jason apologizes and tells her this won't go on for ever. Sam doesn't see an end in sight. She doesn't want to see Jason die because of this. Jason has to see it through. Sam thinks he should have complete information. Jason tells her he has more information on Brenda and the Balkan but it is not enough yet to stop him. Sam wants to know when enough will be enough. She asks why he won't let someone else take care of Brenda. Jason says the situation is tough for everyone. Sam feels like everything they have has been pushed aside for Brenda. Jason says he is making progress. Sam asks if he knows why the Balkan is after Brenda. Jason says yes. She wants him to tell her and he says he can't.
Sam and Jason are talking on the couch as Brenda comes down the stairs. Brenda doesn't want them to put their lives on hold for her. Sam wants Brenda to fill her in on what secret Jason is keeping for her. Brenda tells Sam that it is none of her business. Brenda says theres a difference between lying and personal boundaries. Jason says he is trying to end this. Sam says it would be easier for her to deal with if she knew what was going on. She tells Brenda that she can trust her and she wants to help. Brenda is sorry but she can't do that. Sam tells Brenda it isn't just about her; Jason is in danger too. Brenda asks if she has ever made a choice that has haunted her. Sam tells her she has. Brenda thinks that Sam wouldn't want her to know the details of those things. Sam says that if it meant helping someone she cares about she would scream it out at the top of her lungs.

She doesn't like it either. She says it puts walls up between them. He says she knows he loves her and he is sorry he has been so preoccupied. Sam cuts him off saying she loves him too and is glad that he came there. She accepts his apology but needs him to hear her out. She says he is who he is and never tries to hide it. She also knows how far he will go to protect the people he feels responsible for and that would include Brenda because she was his wife. He says they were not married in any way that matters but he needs to help. Sam knows. She says he always keeps his promises. He tries. She says at least he is consistent and she really loves that about him. She doesn't think it would be fair of her to say she loves and accepts him and then expect him to change so this is her accepting him, Brenda and all. Jason and Sam cuddling on the couch.

Carly says he is picking on her when she hasn't done anything. Jason says yet. She wants him to tell Brenda to stop throwing herself at Jax. Jason says he already told Brenda to stay away from Jax. He says his guards will let him know if she goes near Jax so Carly needs to forget her crazy plans and forget about Brenda and Dante and move on. Carly says she is not obsessing that she is trying to hold on to her marriage. She thinks Brenda needs some incentive to leave town. Jason says Brenda is not going anywhere and he does not need her even more freaked out. Carly is mad that Jason is bending over backwards to help Brenda when she is lying in his face. He wants to know about what. She tells him Brenda and Dante had an affair three years ago.
Jason does not believe Carly about the affair. She says she has a witness. He wants to know about the witness. She tells him about the witness and everything he told her.

Jason says Dante's lies raised a red flag. Dante thinks that Carly is going to get Brenda killed. Jason says Carly will not quit. Dante realizes that if Carly keeps digging she will find out about Aleksander. Jason says Carly would love to find that out and use it.

Dante doesn't care if Carly hates him but she is going to bring the Balkan down on everyone. He wants Jason to stop her. Later Spinelli comes in with flowers that he is going to take to Robin for Brenda. Jason takes the flwoers from him. He thinks Spinelli has better things to do than run Brenda's errands. Spinelli is happy to help Brenda. Jason yells at him to help him and get him information on the Balkan. He tells him to get back to work and he doesn't want to hear another word about Brenda.

Jason says he likes this idea. He makes his his own toast where he says he loves Sam and that she is beautiful. Sam asks what is next on the list. Jason says they did the first five things. He wants to jsut enjoy the rest of the night and get out of these clothes. Sam says Molly will know. Jason says how and Sam says she can't lie to her little sister. Jason wants to go upstairs and take a break. Sam thinks they have to finish the list first. Jason gets up and extends his hand. Sam goes to him and they dance. Jason asks if she is happy and she says very. Jason smiles.
Sam goes to the hospital to see Robin. Sam is there because her sisters don't think things have progressed enough. Robin says with Mac and Alexis. Sam wants to know if Robin is still in. Robin says she's in. Sam says that Mac is invited to Thanksgiving at Alexis' but neither of them know it yet. They talk about how great Mac and Alexis are for each other. Maxie comes in.

At the Lakehouse, Alexis says she set the turkey on fire so she is going to get another one. Kristina tells her Sam is picking one up. Alexis wants to know why there are eight places set when there are only three of them for Thanksgiving. Kristina says she invited Diane and Max. Alexis says that is five. She wants to know who else was invited. Before Kristina can answer, Sam comes in carrying a turkey. She says the trimmings are in the car. Kristina asks about the surprise side dish and Sam says it is taken care of. Alexis wants to knwo what side dish. Kristina's phone rings. She answers it and runs out talking.

Sam gets a couple calls about work and has to go. She and Jason hug and kiss and she takes off. Jason wants Lucky to check out Alexsander. This is the first Lucky is hearing about this and he will not help until he is updated. Dante tells him about Alexsander. They discuss the cover-up. Lucky won't tell Mac. Jason explains to Lucky why the Balkan is interested in Brenda. They continue to look into Alexsander until Jason says maybe Jack is not a dead end if it is not a first name. Sam comes into her apartment talking on the phone about taking a shift for her case. She goes into the bedroom and a man steps out of hiding.
Jason says to assume Jack is a first name. Lucky agrees that it could be a last name. Jason thinks that maybe the last name is Jacks. Alexis comes to Sam's apartment to get Sam to stop trying to hook her and Mac up. Sam asks her if she would rather be with somebody like Jerry Jacks? Dante thinks that there's no way Jax is connected to the Balkan. Lucky tells him about Jerry and Dante looks at Jerry's record on the computer. Jason tells him that Jerry shot Robin and Max and was responsible for Alan's heart attack. Dante doesn't think that Jax would let Jerry hurt Brenda. They tell him Jerry would do anything if the price is right. Alexis agress that Jerry being a mistake, but she is talking about Mac. Sam asks her if she had a good time on Thanksgiving. Alexis did. She likes Mac very much. Sam is confused. Alexis tells her that there is no spark with Mac. Sam wants to know if she means like a Jerry Jax kind of spark? Alexis thinks Sam shouldn't judge because she does not have the best taste in men either. Sam agrees but she has wised up and found someone who respects her. Alexis knows she has like Mac respects her. Sam brings up Jerry again. Alexis doesn't want to talk about him. He was the worst mistake of her life but she still doesn't want them to fix her up with Mac again. Lucky, Jason and Dante discuss how psychotic Jerry is. They come to the conclusion that Jerry could be the Balkan. They discuss the fact that Jerry is old enough to have a grown son so Aleksander could be his son. Alexis and Sam talk about Alexis's father issues and how that relates to her dating problems. Sam thinks Alexis is sabtoaging herself. Sam cell phone rings. Alexis thanks Sam for caring about her. Sam tells her that of course she cares and that if Mac calls Alexis will say yes. Alexis leaves. Sam's phone call cancels her job for the evening. Jason arrives at Sam's apartment. She thanks him for coming over. He thought that she had to work. She says her client cancelled. Jason says that it sounds great but he has bad news. He thinks that Jerry Jacks is back. She asks him if he thinks Jerry is the Balkan. He doesn't know but Dante thinks it is possible. Sam thinks that it is crazy. Jason says that if Jerry is back that means that Sam is in danger.
Jason tells Sam that Jerry could be in town right now. She thinks that since he is targeting brenda she is not at risk. Jason disagrees because Jerry knows how much Sam means to him. She assures him that he doesn't have to worry about her and reminds him that they don't even know if Jerry is connected to the Balkan. Jason doesn't care. He doesn't want her at risk. He wants her to stay at his place. She laughs and says that he already has a full house. He jokes about how he might just move out himself. Sam thinks that sounds nice but he doesn't have to worry about her. She wants him to do what he needs to do and she will be fine. Sam is not going to let Jerry scare her out of her home. He reminds her that Jerry nearly killed her and she says he almost killed you too. Jason can handle Jerry. So can Sam. He couldn't take it if something happened to her. She tells him now he knows how it feels to worry about someone who says they're going to be fine. She reminds him that he was bleeding and on his deathbed saying he was going to be fine. He denies he did that. Sam says no comment. Jason thinks this is the worst time for Jerry to show up. Sam thinks there is never a good time for him to show up. Jason is worried that Brenda will cause Sonny to make bad decisions. Sam says that they are adults and if they mess up their lives that is their problem. Jason says good point and they kiss. Jason and Sam coming out from her bedroom laughing and giggling he tells her that he doesn't want to leave but he needs to get Spinelli working. She is confused. She thinks that Spinelli is very motivated when it comes to Brenda. Jason thinks he is only motivated to run her errands. Jason checks her locks. She shows him that she still has her gun. He wants her to be careful. She will. They kiss and he leaves. Jason is back at the Penthouse. Spinelli was hoping that it was Brenda back from her date. Jason wants him to stop. Spinelli is just concerned that Sonny is taking advantage of Brenda. Jason thinks that if Spinelli is so concerned about Brenda he should work on tracking down the Balkan. He tells him that Jerry Jaxs might be the Balkan. Spinelli is on the case. A man is lurking outside Sam's door while she is on the phone discussing surevillance for the next day. Jason tells Spinelli that Jerry's close with his mother so he wants him to start there. Spinelli is going to search her calls. Spinelli stops.He thinks he hears footsteps.
Sam is talking on the phone with Maxie as she is gets ready to leave her penthouse. When she goes to lock her door, she notices something wrong and tells Maxie she will call her back. Brenda tells Jason she has a date with Sonny. Jason doesn't want Brenda to leave the penthouse. Brenda argues so he tells her about Jerry possibly being involved with the Balkan. Brenda says that Jax would never let Jerry hurt her. Jason tells Brenda she doesn't know Jerry and updates her on what happened at the Metro Court. Jason says Jax can't control his brother so she needs to stay put. Jason's cell phone rings and its Sam. She tells him she found something at her place and he needs to see it. Brenda wants to go with Jason. He says no. Jason makes a call and tells the person that Brenda needs them. Spinelli shows up and Jason wants him to guard Brenda and not let her leave the apartment. Spinelli says he won't fail to protect the Divine One even from herself. Jason says good and tells Brenda not to play games with Spinelli. Jason is checking out the handle and lock at Sam's penthouse. Sam says it wasn't like that last night; she would have noticed. Jason says that someone definitely broke in. Sam says nothing was taken; maybe Jerry knows they're onto him. Jason tells Sam that Jerry knows the best way to distract him is by threatening her. Sam thinks it could be one of her enemies from the work she does. Jason agrees but it looks like Sam is being stalked. He tells Sam that she is unfinished business for Jerry, so it would make sense for him to come after Sam first. Jason asks Sam if she is sure she wants to do it this way and she says yes. Jason tells Sam that she can move in with him. Sam tells Jason that this is her home and Jerry isn't going scare her away. She reminds Jason that she is armed and dangerous and holds up her gun. Sam says that if he tries break in again she's ready. Jason says ok and tells Sam to play it smart. She says she will if he will. They kiss and Jason leaves. Sam closes the door and looks scared. Sam is walking down the alley talking on the phone with Maxie. A man comes up from behind Sam and grabs her. Jason comes around the corner with his gun drawn and tells the guy if you lay another hand on her, and you're dead. This is where it ends, Jerry.
Jason tells the man to turn and tell him everything he knows about Jerry Jacks starting with where he can find him. The henchman says there must be a mistake. Jason demands he tells him what he knows about Jerry Jacks. Sam asks why he broke into her apartment. Jason says he will kill him without thinking twice. Jason wants to know why he was targeting Sam. The henchman tells them that he was hired. Jason wants to know who hired him. The henchman tells them it was the name he mentioned. Sam says Jerry Jacks and he says yes. Jason wants to know what the plan was. The henchman says he was to grab Sam and wait for further instructions. Jason asks what he knows about the Balkan and if he is Jerry Jacks. Gunshots are fired and the henchman is hit. Jason covers Sam and asks if she is ok. He then fires his gun in the direction the gunfire came from. Dante arrives and tells Sam that Jason called him. Sam tells Dante that the guy is one of Jerry Jack's men. Sam tells him about the guy breaking into her apartment and trying to grab her. As Jason walks up Dante says not to call him for clean up detail. Jason kill the guy. Sam says it was a sniper. Jason tells Dante that he was questioning the guy and shots were fired. Jason saw something and went to see if the sniper was there. He was gone but left some blood on the ledge. Dante says so you got him. Jason says he doesn't know how bad. Jason and Sam are at the PI office checking into the information on the henchman's phone. Sam says all the calls were incoming, local calls. Jason thinks its pretty crazy that Jerry could be in town and no one has seen him. Sam agrees but it might not be crazy if Jerry doesn't look like Jerry anymore. Jerry changed his face before. Jason says that could be a complication. Dante comes in and says that Mac almost busted him down to clerical until he mentioned Jerry Jacks' name. Jason says that Jerry is ruthless and if Sam's going to be involved she should know everything. Dante tells Sam that they think the Balkan is after Brenda because she killed his son. If Jerry is the Balkan then this is personal. Dante says they need to figure out a timeline. Dante and Jason go over what they know from Aleksander's death until Jason brings Brenda back to Port Charles and how The Balkan comes after her here through intermediaries but they are not getting the job done. Jerry Jacks whose brother has ties to Brenda makes him the perfect fit for the next go between. Dante says unless Jerry Jacks is the Balkan. Jason says there's no way to figure that out. Dante thinks that maybe they can. He has Aleksander Janacek's autopsy. They could announce they are going to release the body and see who claims it. Sam is not sure. She says that the Balkan has gone through a lot of trouble to protect his identity. Sam doesn't think that the Balkan would be stupid enough to walk into a police station; he won't make a public appearance. Dante says he won't leave his son's body to rot. Jason says if he doesn't come himself, he'll send somebody. Dante says or will break in and steal it; either way, Aleksander's body could lead them straight to the Balkan.
Jason, Sam and Dante at the PI office. They talk about using Aleksander's body to draw out the Balkan. Jason wants to stek out the morgue in Jersey. Dante wants to request that Aleksander's body be transferred to GH for a secondary autopsy to bring the Balkan to them. Jason likes the plan but they are going to need somebody at the hospital to help. Dante leaves to talk to Steve Webber. Sam knows this is their only lead, but she doesn't think the Balkan is going to be drawn out so easily. Jason says that Aleksander is the Balkan's son, and that changes everything. The Balkan is too emotional to make a smart choice. Michael is with Abby and Rodney, the guy he beat up. Abby is afraid the bleeding won't stop and he'll have to go to the hospital. Michael calls Jason and tells himn he's in trouble and he hurt a guy bad. Jason and Sam arrive as Rodney says he wants to call the police. Jason says its best that they just forget this happen. Rodney recognizes Jason and agrees to keep quiet. Michael and Abby explain to Jason and Sam what happened. Abby wants to get to work. Sam goes with her. Jason tells Michael he's lucky that he got there before the cops. and that it can't happen again or he'll be back in Pentonville. Jason and Michael go back to the PI office. Jason wants Michael to go over what happen again. Michael explains again what happened. Jason understands that Michael wanted defend Abby. Michael interrupts saying he took it too far but he doesn't care. Jason says that if Abby was ok with it and Michael says she wasn't. He could tell by the way she tensed up that she didn't want to be touch and he knows what thats like. Jason and Michael talk about Michael's friendship with Abby and her job as a stripper. Jason tells this can't happen again because he is still on parole. He needs to avoid situations that could get him in trouble. Sam comes back and Jason is there alone. Jason asks about Abby and Sam says she made it to work on time. Jason wants to know if Abby seemed ok after what happened. Sam says Abby was worried about Michael. Jason says Michael overreacted but knows he can't do it again. Sam agrees but she is glad he stuck up for Abby. Jason says that Abby is a stripper and dealing with jerks is part of her job.
