Shawn arrives and goes snooping around Sonny's office until Jason and Sam pull a gun on him.
Jason asks Shawn what heís doing there in the office. Shawn is there because Theo knows that Jason has been looking into his past and is sending a message to back off. Jason says Shawn is not getting paid enough because Theo obviously didnít tell him the risk of coming to his business uninvited. Jason tells him to consider this his free pass but if he catches him again he will treat him like any other threat. Shawn leaves but makes a point to say goodbye to Sam by name. Sam and Jason question why Theo needs a strong arm to lead his investigation. Jason summons Theo and tells him he is fired.

Jason says Theo is showing him who he really is. He believes that Theo was hired by the Balkan. Jason wants to investigate the family that instigated the lawsuit and all the lawyers involved.
Sam comes downstairs as Jason gets off the phone with Spinelli about Theo. Jason is confident that Theo is connected to the Balkan. They just have to figure out how. They go over what they know about the Balkan and Theo. Sam thinks its possible that maybe Theo is just working his ego, wanting the publicity for exonerating Brenda. Jason isn't sure. Sam wants to make sure he doesn't focus too much on Theo that he misses other clues. Kristina shows up and Sam brings her to get the rose petals. Brenda arrives, telling Jason her court case has been delayed thanks to Theo. Jason and Sam show up at the PI office where they find Carly and Spinelli talking. Carly says she won't interrupt Sonny and Brenda's wedding and leaves. Spinelli tells Jason and Sam that he invited Carly to go to the wedding with him. They tell him they have a lead and want him to do more research. He is going to run Aleksander's DNA to recent DNA samples in the hospital records hoping the Balkan finally made a mistake.
Spinelli is having a PI fantasy that he is saving Jason. Jason calls him out of his fantasy. He want to know if there are any matches but Spinelli needs more time. Jason leaves to meet Dante, telling Spinelli to call him when he finds something. Jason sees Dante at the pavilion and says everything is in place. Dante has a bad feeling and he thinks Jason does too. Sam is at the pavilion looking around when she sees Jason. She decided to do her own walk through because she knows that if something goes wrong he'll blame himself and for her own selfish reasons because if the wedding goes off without a hitch Brenda is gone from the Penthouse. Jason says she has been great supporting him through all this and she is everything he needs. Sam asks if Sonny and Brenda couldn't make it work the first time what are their chances this time. Jason says if they are lucky like we were, a lot went wrong and they got through it and came out stronger. Sam says her life doesnít work without him in it. That no relationship is perfect but she wouldn't trade theirs for anything in the world. They say I love you and kiss. Jason and Sam at the Penthouse dressed for the wedding. If it all goes to plan he'll be a free man in a few hours and Brenda will be Sonnyís problem. Spinelli storms in and says he knows the identity of the Balkan.

At Diane's office, Sam pulls a gun on Shawn only to have the tables turned on her. She tells him that they know about Theo being the Balkan, so he decides she would make the perfect hostage. Jason comes in, gun ready, demanding that Shawn let Sam go.
Jason explains to Shawn that they know Theo is the Balkan and that he hired Shawn to grab Brenda. Jason yells at Shawn to let Sam go. Jason says you hurt her and I will kill you. A long line of men lost their lives for the Balkan's agenda. Shawn says if you don't kill me, Theo will. Shawn lets Sam go and gives her the gun back. Jason wants to know where Theo is. Shawn doesn't know. Theo doesnít trust him or anyone. Shawn says if you are going kill me do it here. Jason says maybe no one has to die. Jason wants to know why Sam left the wedding. She tells him she saw Shawn and followed him. Jason asks what the plan was. Shawn tells him that he was there for Brenda but couldnít get to her because there were too many people in and out of the bridal room and he did not sign on for witnesses. Shawn mentions Carly and Jason wants to know how he knows Carly. He says from Molly. Jason wants to know what he would have done if Theo asked him to grab Carly or Molly. Shawn doesn't mess with kids and he didn't know Carly at the start so if her name had been in the agreement, he would have grabbed her. Diane shows up, turns her back quickly and yells at Jason. Jason tells her that Theo is the Balkan. Diane canít believe she was so gullible. Jason wants everything on Theo. Sam asks about Brenda. Jason says she is safe for now. Diane says she will work on getting the information but Jason has to take Shawn elsewhere. They leave. At the Penthouse, Shawn wants a deal. Shawn calls the Balkan in front of Jason and Sam. He tells him that there was a problem and he couldnít grab Brenda. Shawn wants to regroup and meet somewhere. They agree on a location.
Jason and Sam aren't sure if they can trust Shawn. Sam believes there will be an ambush. Jason wants to act fast and take Theo out. While Jason changes, Sam holds a gun on Shawn. He says she and Jason are an impressive team. Jason comes down and tells Sam he needs her at the wedding. She wants them to stick together but he doesn't want her in danger. He won't be able to focus if he is watching to make sure Theo doesn't take her out. She tells him to be careful and that she will see him soon. Jason and Shawn leave.

Jakeís birthdays, Christmas mornings and first day of school. He says he
missed all the important days in his sonís life except the day he was born
and the day he died. Sam tells Jason she will run interference so he
doesnít have to talk to anyone at the memorial. Jason wants to honor Jake

talks about how he wishes he could have walked with Jake and grabs Sam
fingers and shows her how he used to walk with Michael. He wishes he could

Later, Sam comes in with groceries to find Jason sitting on the couch. They talk about Michael and Jason wonders if he was right to give up Jake. Sam says he did what he thought was best at the time. Jason tells her Sonny says you donít save a child by giving them up and he thinks Sonny was right. Jason thought that Jake was better off and missing him was the price he paid for keeping him safe. Kids gets sick and kids can die and all he did was miss out on the chance to know his son. Sam hugs him and tells him all they can do is love while they have the chance. Jason cries. As a tear falls down his cheek onto Samís face. She brushes it away.
At the Penthouse, Jason wants to know if Sam thinks he was wrong not to go to Jake's memorial. She tells him no one can judge him.

thinks Jason got sloppy and they can tie it back to him.
When Jason gets home, Sam and Dante are waiting. Sam tells him to call Diane but Dante says he can call after charges are filed. He tells Jason about Brandon, accusing him of murder. Sam wants to know what Dante thinks he has on Jason. Dante says the only other person with such a strong motive is Michael and he can't picture him doing this. Dante thinks Jason killed Brandon before Michael did it himself. Dante wants to make sure Michael stays away from the business as Sam argues with him over whether or not Jason killed Brandon. Dante says he will prove it and leaves. Jason and Sam talk about wanting Michael to stay out of the business. Jason is scared because he saw that Michael was ready to kill Brandon. Sam realizes that Jason thinks Michael did it. Sam knows Jason has to protect Michael but she doesn't want him sent back to prison. Later, Michael shows up and tells Jason that Dante questioned him.

Carly arrives at the Penthouse. Jason asks about
Josslyn. Carly doesn't know how Jason is dealing with it all. He called
her for a reason. He assures her that neither he nor Michael killed
Brandon but Michael looks guilty so he needs to find the real killer.
Carly wants him to let Dante to do his job so he can grieve. Jason isnít
comfortable leaving this in Danteís hands. He thinks Dante's
conflict of interest could leave Michael back in the system. Jason says
finding Brandonís killer protects Michael. He needs to focus on this
because the pain is too much. His son is dead; a kid he barely knew
because he turned his back on him. He says how Jake died had nothing to do
with his job. Carly says he wanted Jake to have a normal life. Jake did
have a normal life and he did right by his son. Carly hugs Jason. Later,
Sonny comes by and tells Jason about Lucien and needing a security detail
for him. Jason asks if Sonny is just going to accept Suzanneís story.
Sonny doesnít know. Heís not sure if Brenda can handle raising a kid in
this lifestyle. Jason says this is what she signed on for. Jason talks
about how Jake wasnít expected and how he gave him up and walked away.
Jason is on the phone when Sam comes in. She talked to some of the girls
at Vaughnís and has some leads to follow up on. Jason wants to do it to
keep busy. He fills her in about Lucien and how he needs to make sure he
is protected. Jason says that whole time he was talking to Sonny he was
thinking why didn't he do this for Jake. He could've tried but he let him
go. Sam says he had a good reason. He says it wasn't like him and he can't
stop thinking about him. Sam says he suffered a terrible loss and it is
normal to question things. She assures him that Jake didn't die because of
anything he did or didn't do.
Sam says it was wrong of Sonny to show up and ask for Jason to protect Brenda's son. Jason compares Lucian and Brenda to Michael and Carly. They talk about how Sonny and Brenda just got married but now have to figure out their lives with a child. Jason says although Sonny didn't want another child, he knows he will step up like he has for his own kids. Jason reflects on what a good mother Carly is, wanting to have been able to do that for Jake. At Sonny's, Jason runs into Brenda, and they talk about Lucian. Jason lets her know that he is taking care of security. They discuss Jake. Brenda tells him that although she knows they need to have guards there, she doesn't want Lucian to feel like a prisoner in his own home. Brenda tells him he is amazing for donating Jake's kidney. Jason says that wasn't him it was Lucky and Liz. Lucky shows up at the Penthouse. He and Jason discuss Jake and Luke. Jason tells him that he isn't responsible and that he was a good father. Lucky is there to question him about Brandon's murder. Upon Carly's request, she and Sam meet up at Kelly's to talk about Jason. She knows no one can replace Jake but she wants Sam and Jason to have a baby. Lucky goes over what happened with Brandon and Abby and wants to know about Jason's whereabouts. Jason thinks its a conflict of interest because of Jake and tells him it is too hard for him to be questioned by Lucky. Lucky says someone else will be by to question him and leaves.

Michael shows up to the Penthouse, where he tells Jason that Abby was picked up for questioning. Michael wants to go to the PCPD but Jason says no. Sam tells Carly she has thought about the procedure but she has decided to decline. Carly tells Sam the best they can do is love their kids and give them a good life.

Jason calls Diane to look out for Abby. Michael wants to go to the station to be with Abby. Jason tells him that she is bait. Carly tells Sam she would be her surrogate but Sam is against it, bringing up her own health issues. Sam doesn't think Jason wants a child. Carly says this is a decision that she has to make for him. Jason tells Michael that Ronnie wants to set him off. Kristina shows up at Kelly's to meet Sam to talk about college. Sam tells her to go with her gut. Jason tries to get Michael to understand that the PCPD wants him to confess to save Abby so Jason will confess to save Michael. Michael leaves as Lucky shows up to talk about Jake and Luke. Lucky says Jake was conceived because of his addiction and died because of his father's. He apologizes to Jason who tells him he knows that Lucky loved Jake. Dante arrives to the Penthouse and tells Jason that someone with a lot of money was bankrolling Brandon.
Jason finds a pamphlet about the procedure on the desk. Sam comes down and tells him she got it from Carly. She tells him about her meeting with Carly. Jason apologizes for Carly. Sam says she was actually nice. Jason says it was her way of trying to help. Sam wants to help him too and asks what she can do. Sam thinks that they should not even think about a baby while he is grieving for Jake. He thanks her for understanding. She talks about how he helped her after her baby died. She wants to do the same for him. Later, Sonny comes to see Jason about Michael. They think Johnny is recruiting Michael and Michael won't listen to Sonny. Sonny wants to nail Johnny for Brandon's murder. Jason thinks even if Johnny ordered it, he didn't do it himself. Jason says since they don't want to let Michael into their organization why wouldn't he try to prove himself with Johnny. Sonny says Michale doesn't get to choose. Later, Michael comes to see Jason because Jason called him. Michael knows that Sonny talked to him and does't think Jason should be having to deal with this. They discuss Johnny. Michael is clear that he trusts Johnny no matter how Sonny feels about him. Michael tells him how Johnny has been helpong him. Jason tells him Johnny is recruiting him. Jason wants him to turn him down. Michael would rather work for them but Johnny is giving him the chance. Jason says he is using him. Michael compares his situation to Jason's when he went to work for Sonny. Jason says the situations are different. Michael was thinking about college after the memorial but then Abby got beat up and now he sees the situation doesn't work. He says again that Jason shouldn't be dealing with this while he is grieving. Jason says he gave up Jake to protect him from all the pain Michael went through. He says he stayed away from his son until the night he had to watch him die. He tells him that is what the business cost him and it is not worth it.
Jason warns Michael that if he joins the business, he will lose people he loves because it takes your heart and soul. Michael wants to know if he regrets joining the business. Jason tells him if he knew what it would become and the loss he would feel, he wouldn't have taken the job. He says if Michael joins the business, one way or another, he will pay. Sam visits Elizabeth letting her know how sorry she is about Jake. Sam apologizes for being so awful and jealous of her when Jake was born. Elizabeth tells her they all did things that didn't make sense. Jason wants Michael to take some time to figure out what will truly make him happy. Michael wants to be independent and prove he can take care of himself. Jason tells him he won't get it from Johnny. Sam and Elizabeth talk about Lucky and how he and Jason don't blame Elizabeth for Jake's accident. As Sam goes to leave, Elizabeth gives her Jake's toy motorcycle to give to Jason. Jason tells Michael that after his accident, he went about things the wrong way, bringing up how Alan died before he was able to make things right between them. Jason says he learned from that and won't turn his back on him. Michael wants to make his own choice. He leaves. Sam tells Jason about her visit with Elizabeth and gives him the motorcycle. Sam tells him that he would have been an amazing father. Jason says a good father knows when to let go, saying Michael is at that point. Jason fills Sam in on Michael's wanting to join Johnny's business. Jason feels Michael just keeps paying for the mistakes he and Sonny made. Jason finally realizes he couldn't control what happened to Jake, just like he can't control what happens to Michael.
Jason talks to Sam about how death comes at anytime to anyone and all we can do is do something with the time we are given. They talk about how he missed Jake everyday but he put Jake's needs before his own. Sam tells him that everyone did what they thought was best for Jake and he isn't to blame for what happened. Jason tells her that she is easy to talk to. Sam's phone beeps. She has to go to work. She starts talking about the case which involves a couple who have gone through fertility treatments. After a hug and "I love yous," Sam leaves. Michael arrives at the Penthouse and tells Jason that he went to talk to Sonny about Johnny. Michael notices the fertility pamphlet on the desk and asks if Jason and Sam are having a baby. Jason tells him about how Carly wants them to have a baby. Jason thinks Carly is just saying what Sam won't let herself say. He knows Sam and she at least wants the chance to be a mother. Michael asks what Jason wants. He tells him that taking care of him as a baby was one of the highlights of his life. Abby taught Michael that if you love someone, spend as much time as you can with that person. He doesn't want Jason to let what happened to Jake hold him back but to be the best dad he can be. When Sam gets back to the Penthouse, Jason wants to know if Sam is interested in the procedure and she says part of her wishes she could have a baby and make everything better.
Sam tells Jason to forget whatever she said about having a baby. She doesnít want them to be under that kind of pressure. Jason doesnít want her to regret not having a baby. Sam asks him if they are ready for their lives to change? Jason doesn't want her not to have the procedure because of the way they live. Sam doesn't want him to feel like she's pressuring him. Carly comes in. She asks if they are going to take her advice and have a baby. Carly says no child can replace Jake but she wants them to have the happiness a baby can bring. Sam leaves because she has an appointment. Jason tells Carly she can't fix it for him. Carly says Sam wants a baby whether she admits it or not. Jason asks if she really believes that. Carly says he deserves a child more than any one she knows. She wants him to let himself be happy. Sam sees Patrick at the hospital. He forgot about her appointment. Sam says its not like him to forget an appointment and wants to know what is going on. Patrick tells her about how he and Robin are going to a marriage counselor. Jason fills in Carly about Michael talking with Johnny. He tells her that he believes that Johnny is trying recruiting Michael and why. Carly says not as long as she's breathing. Sam and Patrick finish up her appointment. Sam wants to know if getting pregnant will be affected the concussion. Patrick says not at all and for what its worth he hopes it works out for her and Jason. Carly says no way is she letting the Zacchara's steal her son. Jason says like Sonny stole me. Jason wants to give Michael some room to see that he has some options. Carly will talk to Michael. Jason tells Carly not to fight with Michael; it will only push him away. Don't make him treat her like he treated Allen and Monica. Jason is on the phone talking about Brandon when Sam walks in. He's sorry for the whole Carly thing. Sam says she must be mellowing out because she actually liked the concern. Jason says he turned Carly on to someone else, Johnny. Sam says Michael is like Jason but Carly too. Carly doesn't take no for an answer and neither does Michael. Jason holds up the pamphlet. He loves Carly but she doesn't know how to leave a thing alone. He wants Sam to know what happens between them is something they decide. Jason wants Sam to be honest with him and not say what she thinks he wants to hear. Sam says she didn't want to have the procedure because he would be conflicted. Jason can't choose for her. He says being a parent scares him but Jake taught him that fear is the wrong reason to make a decision. Sam says she wants to give herself a chance and have the procedure.
Sam is looking for something in the couch. Jason comes home. Sam says she lost her keys. Jason finds them on the table. Jason says if she is worried about the procedure to just cancel the appointment. Jason says he totally understands if she is not ready. Sam is scared of getting her hopes up and disappointing either of them. Jason loves her no matter what happens. Sam loves him and it is nice to hear. Jason doesnít want Sam to let fear drive her. He offers to go to the appointment and she is surprised. Jason and Sam talk about the appointment. Sam is telling him about how cold and scary the exam is. Jason is all about going but Sam thinks sheís being silly. They kiss and Sam heads off the appointment. Sam meets with Dr. Lee to talk about the procedure. Sam doesnít want Dr. Lee to be positive spin on things; she wants her to be real about her chances. Diane is at Jasonís. They are talking about Abbyís case. Abby doesnít have an alibi nor does Michael or Jason. Diane is concerned about Abby and Michael keeping their mouth shut. She wants to know who hypothetically killed Brandon. Jason says it wasnít him. She wants Jason to tell her who can vouch for his whereabouts. Jason didnít want to be around anyone so he got on his bike. Diane says she is sorry if she is being insensitive. Diane questions whether Michael killed Brandon. Jason says no. Diane wonders if Michael would lie to protect someone he loves. Jason and Diane discuss what they know about Abby. Jason tells her about Sam introducing them and that Abby has had a hard life. Diane says they donít know anything about Abby. Diane suggest that maybe Michael and Abby are involved in the murder and are covering for each other. Later, Dante is at Jasonís and wants to know about everything he knows Brandonís death. Dante tells Jason about the video that surfaced that shows Michael pointing a gun at Brandon. Sam is at Kellyís crying. Carly walks up and asks what is wrong. Carly is sorry and feels awful for pushing Sam to have the procedure. Dante wants to help Michael but canít unless he knows what really happen. The evidence is damaging. A video shows Michael with a gun pointed at Brandon and two hours later the guy is dead. Jason says he told Brandon to leave and brought Michael back to the penthouse. Dante asks if Michael could have taken off to look for Brandon and killed him. Jason says that Michael will not be convicted of Brandonís murder or go back to prison. Dante says it may already be too late.
In the interrogation room, Ronnie is trying to bait Michael, when Jason and Dante bust in demanding Diane get him released. Ronnie wants Jason to confess. Carly keeps telling Sam how sorry she is for pushing her but Sam says because of her, she knows there is a chance she can have Jason's baby. Carly realizes that Sam was crying happy tears and is relieved that she isn't mad at her. Sam tells her she is a good candidate for the procedure and her chances of carrying to term are better than 50%. At the PCPD, Jason watches the video footage. Diane tries to prove that it isn't clear whether or not Michael is holding a gun. Carly and Sam talk about Jake and the thought of a baby healing Jason. Once Diane gets Michael released, Jason takes him back to the Penthouse where he wants the truth about Brandon's murder; did Abby kill Brandon? Michael stands up for Abby but Jason just wants to be prepared. Michael tells Jason he will never do anything that he wouldn't do and leaves. As Jason thinks back on his conversation with Michael, Sam comes home with the news that she could safely carry a baby to term.
Jason is happy for Sam but asks if she is sure she wants to have a baby with him. She tells him that she would love a family but only if it was with him. Jason doesn't want to mess up another kid's life like he messed up Michael's. Sam tells him that he is wrong; that he taught Michael about honesty and loyalty and that he would be an amazing father. Jason tells her he wants a family with her but he isn't thinking clearly He wishes he took Brandon out himself. Sam wants him to realize he is allowed to grieve but he is worried he will do something he can't take back. Luke arrives at the Penthouse drunk, trying to provoke Jason by saying he has no right to grieve and have opinions about Jake, when he gave him up. Jason shows up at the PCPD where he tries to calm Michael down. Luke continues to trash Jason's actions towards Jake and says he will be waiting in his office for Jason to avenge Jake. Jason promises Michael that he will do his best to help Abby. Sam goes to see Sonny and warns him about Luke's warpath. Jason informs Abby that this is all to get a reaction out of Michael so that Jason can cover for him. Dante pulls Jason and Michael away where he says he thinks Abby did it. Michael punches Dante. At the Penthouse, Sam fills Lucky in on her conversation with Luke. Jason tries to hold Michael back but he confesses to killing Brandon.
Lucky tells Sam that Luke has been drunk since the night he hit Jake. Sam tells Lucky that Jason is angry with Luke. Sam tells Lucky that Jason told her he was afraid he was going to do something he couldn't take back. Lucky says Luke is counting on that. Michael is at the PCPD making a confession. Dante says it is obviously a fake confession. Ronnie says it sounds credible but tells Jason that his confession would trump Michael's. Sam and Lucky agree that they need to keep Luke and Jason away from each other. Lucky wants Sam to not tell Jason that Luke was there. Ronnie is trying to convince Jason to confess. Abby tells Michael she didnít shoot Brandon and he doesnít need to protect her. Dante points out that the eye witness saw Abby shoot Brandon. Michael refuses to leave Abby. Sam says her and Jason donít keep secrets from each other. Lucky just wants her to stall until he can get a plan. Sam says she can tell Jason that Luke didnít threaten her. Sam tells Lucky that she was scared and went to Sonny; maybe he could reason with him. Lucky saying that Luke never turned his back on him and no matter what Luke has done, he is his father and he wonít turn his back on him. Lucky spots the motorcycle and walks over to it. Sam walks in the room and asks if he heard from Luke. Lucky says no. Sam says she wonít lie to Jason but Jason owes Lucky for taking care of Jake. Lucky says Jason doesn't owe him anything and that he is partly responsible for Jake dying. Lucky says to tell Jason he's sorry Luke came over and he is going to do everything he can to give Luke the chance to get help. Lucky leaves. Michael wants to see Abby. Jason says he wants to see her first. Dante tells him neither of them are attorneys. Michael is asking him as a brother. Dante says the brother who just punched him. Dante gets Ronnie out of the interrogation room and Jason goes in to see Abby. He asks her if she killed Brandon. He needs to know what really happen to help her and Michael. Abby says she didn't do it but she'll confess to save Michael. Jason wants to know why she cares. She tells him that he saved her and gave her her life back. Jason appreciates what she would do for Michael but it would have the opposite effect because Michael needs her. He is grateful to Abby because Michael is strong because of her. Jason leaves and Michael comes in. Michael and Jason walk in the penthouse. Michael tells Sam that Abby is in lockup. Jason tells Sam about the eyewitness. Sam says she can get Spinelli to hack into the PCPD and find out the witness name. Michael says its a set up and the person is lying. Jason says not necessarily. Jason thinks the witness thinks they saw Abby. Sam says maybe someone set the witness up. Jason says they have to find out who would benefit from the set up.
Abby's, Jason, Dante, Michael and Abby discuss the possibility of her
trial. Dante says it is going to be hard to prove her innocence. Maxie
stops by the Penthouse, asking Sam to go out for drinks with her and Matt.
Sam can't go because she is having surgery tomorrow. Sam tells her about
the fertility procedure. Maxie thinks getting pregnant right now is a
really bad idea. As Dante and Michael argue about Abby, Jason wonders if
the witness checks out. Jason says someone went through a lot of trouble
to frame Abby. He leaves saying he has something to take care of. At
the Penthouse, Sam overhears Maxie tell Jason it may be a little soon to
have a baby but Sam will do anything to help take his grief away. Jason
and Sam discuss the surgery and its risks. Jason supports whatever Sam
decides but wants to make sure she isn't doing this because Jake died.
Back at Abby's, Abby tells Jason that Sonny wants her to break up with
Michael. Jason says the best way to protect Michael is to prove her
innocence. Jason questions Abby about the witness. He wonders about Abby's
relationship with Johnny, later visiting Johnny demanding to know the
woman he hired to kill Brandon. Anthony listens as Jason tells Johnny that
he owes Michael for what he and Claudia put him through.
Jason and Johnny discuss Michael, Anthony makes his presence known. Jason
wants to know how he got out of prison. Johnny tells him about the lawyer
getting him out. Abby arrives at the Penthouse with smoothies for herself
and Sam. They discuss Michael and how Dante wants Michael to stay away
from her. Abby thought the witness was lying at first but she realized he
really thought she killed Brandon. Anthony talks about how Sonny
visited him in prison, while Jason wonders if Anthony had anything to do
with Brandon's murder. Jason goes back to the Penthouse, where he tells
Sam about Anthony and thinking that he framed Abby to get to Michael and
through him, Sonny. Sam wants to go out and search for leads but Jason
thinks she should rest in preparation for the surgery. Jason tells her she
doesn't need to make excuses to put off the surgery if its what she wants.
Jason reassures her that he isn't leaving because he loves her and will
support her. She agrees to go rest while he goes to work. They kiss. Once
Johnny and Anthony leave, Jason breaks in to his Penthouse to look around.
The door opens, Jason grabs his gun and a blonde woman stands watching
Jason made tea for Sam since she canít eat before her
procedure. He shows her the bag Maxie brought for her. He hands her the
tea and sees that she is shaking. Sam tells him that she might more
nervous than she thought. She confesses that Maxie had suggested she
examine her reasons for having the fertility reconstruction. Sam admits
that she had decided to have the surgery because she wanted to give
herself the possibility to have a baby but not necessarily get pregnant
right away. Jason assures Sam that he supports her decision. Sam smiles
with relief just as someone knocks on the door. Molly bursts into the
penthouse to congratulate Sam and Jason on starting a family. Molly gives
Sam her special good luck bear which she wants Sam to give to the baby.
Jason reminds Molly that he and Sam are just focused on getting through
the procedure. Molly leaves and Jason wonders if Sam has any second
thoughts and she says no. Jason and Sam are in her hospital room. Sam
offers Jason the opportunity to speak up if he had any reservations about
the procedure but Jason assures her that he fully supported her. Jason
goes to get Sam some ice chips while she waits. Jason and Elizabeth bump
to each other. He is surprised to see her back at work. She admits it's
been a little more difficult than expected. Elizabeth says that she hopes
that Sam is taking care of him and he says that she is. Elizabeth knows
that Sam is here for fertility procedure. Elizabeth starts talking about
how she knows its impossible for anyone to watch their child one hundred
percent of the time. She apologizes to Jason for rambling and what she
really wants to tell him is that she is happy he and Sam are going to have
a baby and that will be an amazing father. She will always regret not
letting Jake be a part of his life. He tells her that they all had an
agreement that it would be better for Jake to grow up with Lucky.
Elizabeth asks knowing how everything had turned out, if it would have
been better if she had never told Jason about Jake or if Jason would have
preferred to have known from the beginning. Jason says the beginning. She
wishes Sam and him good luck. Jason is back with the ice chips and he
tells her about Elizabeth. Sam says that if him and Elizabeth can help
each other, they should. Jason confesses that he has no idea how Elizabeth
continues to live in the house where Jake had been raised, walk by Jake's
bedroom every day and looked out the window. Jason confides it would have
driven him crazy. Sam realizes that the hospital might be a difficult
reminder of Jake's tragic death so she assures Jason that he is free to
leave. Jason explains that Sam has always taken care of him and it is his
turn to do the same for her. Sam smiles but she is restless waiting to be
taken to surgery. Jason decided to distract her with kisses and a promise
that nothing will change how he feels about her.
As Jason waits in Sam's hospital room, he dreams of showing Jake his motorcycle. When he wakes up, Elizabeth busts in, hoping to find a place to pull herself together. They talk about how hard it is to sleep because of dreaming of Jake. Elizabeth again apologizes for him not having any memories. Jason says he has the memory of he, Sam and Jake after the bus crash, telling her about their conversation and his dream. Elizabeth tells him that she is seeing Jake. Elizabeth says in honor of Jake's birthday, he should take his motorcycle out for a ride. Sam wakes up with Jason by her side. She says she is out of it but isn't in pain. She wants to know how the procedure went. She wants to know if she will be able to carry a baby.
Jason tries to ward off answering Sam's questions by saying Doctor Lee will be in soon to talk with them. She just wants the bottom line: will she be able to carry a baby? Jason tells her it is too soon to know but the procedure went well with no complications. Jason wants Sam to get some rest. Once Sam falls asleep, Jason meets Carly in the hallway where he fills her in on the procedure and Sam's condition. Carly continues to push for Jason and Sam to have a baby because they will be wonderful parents. He doesn't want to talk about it since it is Jake's birthday. Jason wants something to distract him so Carly tells him about Jax wanting custody of Josslyn. Jason agrees that Carly shouldn't hand her daughter over, telling her to never give her up for any reason to anyone. Lucky arrives wanting to talk to Jason about Jake's birthday. Jason lets Lucky know he will never blame him for what Luke did. Lucky says the hardest thing about death is that life goes on. After Lucky tells him about his marriage to Siobhan, Jason says if they want to honor Jake, they just have to keep going but neither of them are ready yet.
Lucky thanks Jason for letting him ramble on about
Jake. Jason has been thinking about him a lot too. Lucky likes to talk
about Jake and Jason likes to hear about him. Lucky needs a favor about
Luke. He wants Jason to not go after him. Lucky talks to Jason about Luke
being an alcoholic and about the intervention. Jason doesnít think itís
his problem. Lucky says Luke wants to die and goading Jason is the best
way. Lucky asks him to not engage. Jason says he can only be pushed so
far. Lucky tells Jason about Luke coming to his apartment to egg Jason
into killing him. Jason is pissed at Luke for driving drunk. They both
acknowledge that Jason would like to kill Luke. Jason wants to be a good
role model for Michael. Lucky thinks Luke is not past redemption. He just
needs more time. Lucky says Jason has his hands full with Michael right
now. Later Michael comes, Jason tells Michael not to trust Anthony.
Michael thinks Anthony is behind eerything. Carly comes and tries to get
Jason to tell Michael to say away from Anthony. Michael leaves. Carly asks
Jason if she has to protect Michael on her own. Jason and Carly argue
about Anthony and Michael. Jason wants her to trust him to take care of
Jason and Sam come home from the hospital. He asks how
she is feeling and she says has some mild discomfort but it is for a good
cause if that is what they decide to do. Sam starts to ramble as to why
she wouldnít make a good mother. She says it is too soon now especially
after Jake. Jason says he doesn't like going to sleep because when he
wakes up he realizes over again that Jake is gone. He knows she had the
procedure so it will be on her mind. He says it is ok if she wants to talk
about it. Sam wants to stop for their sanity. They have miles to go before
that decision. Jason says they have to talk about it to make the decision.
He says you never know if you make the right choice and then one day you
come to face everything you did wrong. Sam reminds Jason that she is there
for him. She will help. He says she does. Jason says he can't stop his
brain from remembering every moment he spent with Jake. He wonders at what
moment he could have changed what happened he knows it doesn't work like
that. He knows death is random. She says it is ok; he is working thru a
process. Jason doesn't want to hold her back and Sam asks how. He says if
she is ready for a baby and he isn't. Sam says if they decide to have a
baby it will be a time that works for them both. She wants a favor and
tells him to leave. She tells him to go for a ride to clear his head. She
is going to take a nap. He agrees and kisses her and leaves. Jason arrives
at the hospital and talks with Shawn. Shawn tells Jason about Carly and
Jax arguing over Josslyn. Then how Jax received a phone call and left.
Shawn tells him Sonny showing up and Carly leaving with him. Jason tries
to figure where Carly and Sonny went.
Jason tells Shawn that part of keeping Carly safe is protecting her from herself. Shawn called Jason because he can't keep Jax from checking Josslyn out of the hospital. They discuss how Jax hates him because of his previous alliance with Theo which makes Jason realize that Jax is saying Carly is an unfit mother. Jason vows that no one will keep Josslyn from her mother. Spinelli arrives at the Penthouse where Sam is resting on the couch. Sam doesn't want Jason to focus on her, saying that no one can replace Jake but having a child would give Jason purpose. As Jason reads to Joss, Elizabeth arrives to check on her. Elizabeth says she is happy to see Josslyn doing so well but walks out in tears. While Spinelli takes care of Sam, they talk about the decision to have a baby. Spinelli tries to reassure Sam when she has doubts about having a baby. He tells her not to let their fears stand in the way of having a child but to give herself and Jason a second chance He thinks she would be a great mom. Jason runs into Elizabeth in the hallway where they both express regret over his not knowing Jake, but she is happy that he can live on through Josslyn. Jason tries to thank Elizabeth for saving Josslyn but she says it is all because of Lucky. Jason confronts Jax at the hospital to keep him from taking Josslyn He tells Jax that she is going home with her mother and insists that he isn't going to do anything until Carly gets back.
Jason wants Carly and Jax to work things out for Josslyn's sake but Jax says she isn't safe with Carly because of him. Alexis brings Sam a care package from she and the girls and asks how things went with the surgery. Alexis feels bad about all the time she and Sam have missed but she is here now if Sam wants to talk. Sam tells her that she would love to have a family with Jason but isn't sure that she would be a good mother. Jason doesn't want Jax to use Jake to prove a point about Josslyn and he says that Jax can't take Josslyn away because of Carly's friends. Jax doesn't want Josslyn to go through what Michael went through. Jason argues that Jax knew who Carly was before he married and had a baby with her. Sam opens up to Alexis about her life before Jason and reflects on how much she wants to give Jason another child, despite her fear of mothering. Alexis tells her to find out her truth and what she wants, not what Jason wants. Spinelli arrives home to find Sam reading his book. She is enjoying it but says to make sure Jason doesn't read it. He brought a gift for she and Jason, mood enhancing candles for when they begin their romantic journey to produce a child. Jason brings up Jerry and the danger he brings with him. Alexis shows up as Jax threatens to call security. Sam talks to Spinelli about her relationship with Alexis over the years, about the loss of her daughter and getting shot. Spinelli questions if Sam has changed her mind about having a baby; she isn't sure. Alexis tells Jason he has no standing and to let Jax take Josslyn since Carly isn't there. Spinelli lets Sam know she will always have his support, regardless of her decision. Jason calls Spinelli, demanding he find something he can use against Jax. Jason is waiting for Carly when she arrives to get Josslyn and tries to calm her down but she storms out to get Josslyn. When Jason gets home, he tells Spinelli to dig deeper to find something and fills Sam in on what transpired between Jax and Carly.
Michael arrives at the Penthouse wanting to know of any leads that will help Abby. Jason again promises to help her. He tells Michael that Diane can stall for as long as she has to but Michael is afraid the justice system will take over first. Jason says since it was a professional hit, it will take awhile to track down. Michael suggests that if it was Sam framed for murder he would do anything it took to save her. Jason agrees but says they have to be smart. Jason wants him to stay away from Anthony Zacchara, not just because of Abby, but to help Carly's fight for Josslyn. Jason wants him to be careful and help Morgan and Carly, so that he doesn't make it any easier for Jax to take Josslyn. Jason lets Michael know the he will be called as a character witness during the hearing, so he has to stay clean and not violate his parole. He tells Michael to help Carly win custody while he takes care of everything else. Carly and Jason meet at the docks, where Luke listens as they discuss the upcoming custody battle. Carly wants to make Jax look more unfit than he is trying to make her look,but Jason warns her to keep cool. Jason tries to calm her down, assuring her that she will not lose Josslyn. Luke interupts, again bringing up his feelings that Jason dumped Jake on Lucky to raise.
Luke taunts Jason about how he really wasnít Jakeís father and he didnít really lose anything. Carly steps in between Luke and Jason. Luke punches Jason. Jason admits he failed Jake but not as bad as Luke has failed Lucky. Carly tells Luke he can go down in flames but he not going to use Jason to do it. Luke talks about how Jason got Elizabeth pregnant and left Lucky to raise a kid that wasnít even his. But now that Jake is dead, Jason is suffering a great loss. Carly defends Jasin. Jason says he not going to give him what he wants. He wants Luke to suffer. Carly apologizes for Luke. She knows what Luke said got to him but its not true. She sees the pain his eyes every time someone mentions Jake. Jason tells Carly about the dream he has about Jake. Carly hugs him. Carly gets a message from Diane that she can go get Josslyn. Jason offers to go but Carly says that Shawn is going with her. Alexis comes over with a care package for Sam but Sam is sleeping. Alexis offers her condolence about Jake. She tells Jason she respected him for giving up Jake to keep him safe. Jason says he missed out on Jake's life. Jason knows she is leading somewhere and wants her to go on with it. If the surgery works, she wants to know how Jake and this baby would be any different.
Alexis wants Jason to give Sam his real input on having a child, bringing up how he gave up Jake and wondering what has changed. They discuss Jax and Carly, as well as Kristina. Alexis says there is a high price for having a child with people that do what Jason does. Sam comes down upset, realizing Alexis is fine with her having a baby just not with Jason. Alexis apologizes for saying the wrong thing and agrees with Sam that in the end, giving up Jake didn't keep him safe. Alexis lets her know that whatever they decide, she will support them. Jason locks the door and tries to get Sam to sit on the couch and rest. She makes a remark about not overdoing it with Jason and Spinelli hovering, so he jokes with her that if she feels that way, he doesn't have to make her specialty sandwich, a BLT with burned toast. She lets him know she appreciates him and is okay if he doesn't want a baby. She makes sure he knows that if they have a baby, she wants it to be his decision too. Sam apologizes for Alexis's lecturing because she doesn't want to cause him more pain. He assures her that she is getting him through. Upon a message from Sonny, Jason heads to the restaurant, where he fills him in on Michael, as well as Carly and Jax. Sonny talks to Jason about Brenda, Jax, and Alec, filling him in on saving Brenda's son. Alexis visits Sam again, feeling bad about how they left things. Sam thinks Alexis is right about Jason; the thought about having another child is killing him. Alexis wants to make sure Sam doesn't only want this baby to make Jason feel better. She brings up how hard it was to lose her baby and how much she still misses her, like Jason misses Jake. Alexis lets her know that in the end, its her decision. Sonny asks Jason if he could do it all over again, if he would still give up Jake, and he admits that he regrets the time he didn't spend with Jake, but he wouldn't force that life on Jake and therefore, Elizabeth. Sonny realizes he can't guarantee that he can keep Brenda and Alec safe, so maybe they shouldn't be together. Tearing up, Jason wants to know if he could live with that.
Jason tries to explain to Sonny that Brenda knew the risks before she married him but Sonny says its different now that she has a child. Sonny says that Brenda isn't Sam. She is volatile, emotional and overreacts. Sonny thinks that he may have to tell Brenda that she and her child are better off without him. Jason wants him to be honest with her, saying if they aren't going to be together, its something they should decide together. Sonny brings up Sam's fertility procedure, telling Jason that he is there if he wants to talk about it. Jason tells Sonny how excited Carly and Spinelli are. Sonny tells him not to let anyone pressure him into doing anything. Jason says that losing Jake taught him that there are no guarantees so you have to live your life. At the Penthouse, Michael tells Jason about breaking into Johnny's and his run in with Anthony. Michael trusts Johnny and thinks he may be able to help him save Abby. Jason tells Michael to leave it alone because he is working on it. Michael says thats not good enough. Michael wants to save Abby from Pentonville. Jason says he won't save her by throwing his life away. He doesn't want to go to Michael's funeral. Jason dreams of showing Jake his motorcycle. Carly arrives and sees Jake's toy motorcycle. They talk about Jason's dream and the time he spent with Jake during the bus crash. Carly tells Jason about the judge's decision to share custody for the time being, so now she can focus on Jason more. Carly wants to know if Jason thinks she is a bad mom, but he tells her not to doubt herself because Josslyn needs both her parents; if she needs to fight, she will fight.
Michael comes over to the penthouse to ask Jason to help him and Abby out of country if he can't find killer. Sam meets Abby at Kellyís. Abby tells Sam that Diane wants her to go with batter woman defense. Sam points out the lack of evidence. Abby says if she goes to prison she could deal with it but not Michael. Abby isnít sure what she should do. Jason understands the urge to run. Michael says that he and Sonny could get him and Abby fake identification and go off to different countries. Jason says its not a vacation and it will cost him if he gets caught. Michael would rather be a fugitive then see Abby confess to crime she didnít commit. Michael says that if Abby lies at the hearing and then they find the real killer, Abby still committed perjury and will go to prison. Jason doesn't want Michael to do anything drastic. He's not going to let him throw his future away not for Abby or anyone else. If there are no other options Jason will help them disappear. Jason is talking on the phone when Sam comes in. He knows she snuck out and wants to know if he is hovering. Sam starts rambling about all the things that Spinelli has been doing for her. Jason asks what is really going on. Sam had her final post operative exam with Kelly. Sam says that the procedure was a success and she wasn't sure how to feel. He pushes her hair back and kisses her. Sam says that whatever they decide she doesn't want to lose what they have now. They don't have to rush into anything. They just have to be honest. He doesn't know what he wants but he does know he love her so much. Jason goes over to Carlyís. He tells her that Diane called and that Jax is filing for emergency sole custody. Carly can't believe he is doing this. Carly doesnít want to keep Jax from Josslyn but if he wonít compromise why should she. Alexis and Jax arrive at Carlyís. They see Jason with Josslyn. Jax is sorry to see his daughter by Jason. Carly says that Jax wanted to prove that she was a danger to Josslyn so there she is sitting with Jason and she is happy; sheís healthy sitting reading a book. So go ahead give her the paper work that says her daughter is in danger..
Alexis tells Jason that Jax is right and that he should go. He refuses because Carly wants him to stay. Carly gets upset saying that Jason is the one who made it possible for Josslyn to get Jake's kidney and there is no reason that he should have to stay away from her. Jax says he is taking Josslyn back to the hotel because he was granted emergency sole custody but Alexis reveals she never filed the paperwork. Alexis wants them to work it out on their own. Jax refuses to compromise. Jason defends his choice to hire Shawn. Jax wants Jason to leave but Carly says that if Alexis stays, so does he. Jax says Carly can't be reasonable when it comes to Sonny and Jason. Alexis wants them to work it out by having shared custody, but Jax says to start, he wants Jason to have no more contact with Josslyn. Jason agrees with Jax that he doesn't want Josslyn's life cut short because of violence but Carly tells Jason not to listen to him. Jason says he will never turn his back on Carly. Carly and Jax begin to argue about Sonny. Carly doesn't want to go for sole custody because she doesn't want to tear Josslyn apart, prompting Alexis to tell Jax that that is exactly what a judge wants to hear. Alexis says that they need to share, because there isn't anything damning enough for either to lose custody. Jason brings up how he didn't try to compromise about Jake but Jax says he did the right thing and wants Carly to do the same. After a call from Dante, Jason talks with Michael and Abby about the woman in custody for Brandon's murder. Michael tells Jason about his and Johnny's working together. Jason is upset that Michael didn't let him handle it. Jason is at the PCPD where he soon comes face to face with Anthony after his talk with the hitwoman.
Jason sees Anthony at the PCPD. Anthony starts talking
to Jason about hit woman claiming old man Trejuillo hired her to pit the
two families against each. He talks about Michael and Jason gets
defensive. Anthony has an offer to make. He wants wants Jason to come work
for him. Jason is not happy. Anthony says that Johnny and Michael already

likes the job he has. Jason watches Anthony leave police station. Jason is
at Sonnyís. Sonny starts talking about Brenda having no concept of
boundaries. Sonny tells Jason about Kristina and Ethan. He is trying to be
a parent but Brenda is getting in the middle. He called Ethan over and
told him to stay away from Kristina but Ethan refused. Jason tells Sonny
that he needs to be careful with Kristina. Sonny says he can't handle
Kristina like he did Michael. She is like him; she doesnít know any
boundaries until someone shuts her down. Jason goes over to see Abby and
Michael. He tells them about seeing Anthony talking to the woman that
killed Brandon. Jason says the woman has been doing everything on
Anthonyís orders. He thinks Johnny could be in on this. Michael says that
Jason thinks he let himself be played. Jason thinks that Anthony is
playing both of them. He warns Michael to stay away from Anthony and
Johnny. Michael asks what if he doesn't.
Jason claims that Johnny and Anthony are trying to use Michael against Sonny. Michael pursue the Zaccharas if Jason and Sonny will give him a job. Alexis arrives at the Penthouse excited for the cheering up party she and the girls are throwing Sam. She wants to warn Sam that Molly is reading up on babies and baby names. Jason reaffirms the fact that he will never work for them. Abby tries to intervene and calm Michael down but he thinks Jason is wrong about Johnny. Jason is upset that Michael and Johnny already talked terms. Michael says as long as he agrees, he will work for him. As they prepare for the party, Alexis fills Sam in on Jax and Carly's custody battle but slips up when she says she understands him not wanting his daughter around Sonny and Jason. Although Alexis says she has her concerns, she wants Sam to be happy, even if that means having a baby with Jason. Molly arrives with cupcakes, ready to help Sam with baby names. Michael swears he would never let Johnny use him against them. Jason again tells him that what he is doing is a mistake that will hurt himself and others but he still loves him and will always be there for him. Abby tells Michael he is being selfish. Despite Alexis's efforts, Molly shares her ideas of baby names with Sam. Kristina arrives, shocking Alexis with her new look. An amused Sam and Molly listen as Alexis tells Kristina that Maxie is too old for her to model her clothing after. Kristina tries to compare her heels to Sam's, but Sam wants to stay out of it. Sam pulls Molly aside as she tries to take Kristina's side. Jason arrives and Molly wants a guy's opinion on Kristina's new look. Sam tells them its time to go. Jason apologizes for breaking up the party. Sam wants to know whats going on. Jason thinks he lost Michael. He tells Sam about running into Elizabeth at Kelly's. He started thinking about if the only way to keep someone safe is to give them up, is it worth it? He fills Sam in on the hitwoman but he is still worried that Michael sees Johnny as a friend. He wants to know if it is worth losing Michael to save him.
Jason arrives at the restaurant as Dante is finishing up at the crime scene. Dante asks Jason not to retaliate against Anthony Zacchara because things will just escalate. Dante connects the dots that Anthony hired the hitwoman that killed Brandon then framed Sonny for her murder. Dante wants information from Jason. He doesn't want Jason to kill the Zaccharas to try to save Michael, asking him to let the police handle Anthony. Later, Jax arrives at the restaurant where he again argues with Jason about the custody battle. Jax fills him in on the information he found on Shawn; that he killed one of his own men in Afghanistan. Jason defends his choice to hire Shawn but Jax is upset that he didn't have Spinelli run a proper background check. Jason is upset at the realization, wanting to find information himself. Carly shows up wondering if what Jax is saying about Shawn is true. She tells Jason that Shawn agreed to keep his distance, saying that she can't fight Jax on this right now, because the most important thing is to keep her daughter. Jason is upset with himself but Carly assures him that she felt safer with Shawn there. Jason goes to Sonny, where he tells him Dante is working on the case. Sonny tells him that Brenda and Alec saw the dead hitwoman. Brenda arrives wanting Sonny to retire and Jason to takeover.
Brenda tries to convince Sonny to let Jason run the business again so they can have a good life with Alec but he explains that they can't just switch. Jason tells Brenda he is sorry that she and Alec walked in on the dead hitwoman. She says Jason is the only person that could take over but Sonny says he won't put Jason on the spot, although Jason says he will do whatever Sonny wants. At the restaurant, Dante tells Jason about Luke bailing on rehab, asking him to talk to Lucky about reconciling with Luke. Jason refuses to, because he respects Lucky too much to tell him that he doesn't blame Luke. Dante points out that Jason believes it was Luke's arrogance that killed Jake, but he is too arrogant to leave the business to set a better example for Michael. Later Carly comes to the restaurant, Jason tells Carly he spoke to Shawn and plans to put someone else on she and Josslyn. Carly is scared about what Jax will say about Jason and Sonny at the hearing, compared to what he did about something so hard and personal for Shawn. Jason is afraid that he will be the reason she loses Josslyn, but Carly has faith that the judge will see how wonderful he is with Josslyn. He tells Carly about his conversation with Dante, saying maybe he has been arrogant enough to think he can protect the people he cares about. Carly says he is so good and generous. He wonders if thats true, why he is still in the business.
comes into Sonny's office and apologizes for being late. Jason forgot they
had dinner plans. Sam asks what's going on. Jason thought he made peace
with this business but now he is thinking he should quit. Jason tells Sam
about Dante asking him to talk to Lucky and saying that Lukeís arrogance
with drinking and driving isnít that much different than what Jason does.
Jason tells Sam about when he first got into the business. Sam says that
sounds like Michael. Jason thinks heís a hypocrite for telling Michael
that the business is wrong when heís still in it. Sam asks if he is wants
to do something else. Jason says it might help Carly and Michael. Sam says
that Michael is going to make his own decision and some would argue that
Michael would be safe if he stayed. Jason is confused. He thought
she might want him to quit. Sam says why because he thinks it would be
safer if they had a child. Jason can't run away from his past. He canít
deny who he is. Jason thinks maybe its selfish to keep risking himself.
Sam thinks sheís selfish because she loves him just the way he is and
doesn't want him to change. They talk about how he gave Jake up and he
died anyway. Sam wants to him to be sure of what he is choosing and why.
Jason asks what she would do. She doesn't see him doing anything ordinary.
They talking about traveling the world together but then Sam says she
thinks about her family and what Spinelli or Carly would do without her
and Jason. She wants him to be true to himself. Jason gets a call from
Bernie and has to go. He thanks Sam for listening. Jason says heís not
sure about a lot but he is sure about them.
At Kelly's, Sam and Abby catch up. They talk about the PI business and Abby's search for a job. Abby asks about Michael, telling Sam she was trying to keep him out of the mob and away from the Zaccharas. After being out all night, Jason arrives at the restaurant where Spinelli shows him the video camera footage of the Zacchara warehouse being burned down. Spinelli thinks Jason was framed but he says otherwise. Abby tells Sam she was just honest with Michael, thinking that if he joins the mob, he will one day regret it. She doesn't want to be another person to police Michael's behavior, but be his safe place. Sam tries to get Abby to go for a job at the MetroCourt but she doesn't want to feel like she is being paid to see Michael, who walks in. Jason tells Spinelli that Anthony has an agenda and that burning the warehouse will piss him off enough to make him strike back, making Johnny realize the cost of war is too high and shutt Anthony down. Jason tells Spinelli he wants a video stream at every one of their properties so they can keep an eye out for Anthony. Spinelli wonders if Jason ever feels he will freeze in the moment, telling him about Maxie choking at Jake's. Spinelli sees something on his computer and rushes out. Sam says she needs to get to work, leaving Michael and Abby to talk. Kristina arrives at the PI office, hoping Sam will talk to Alexis on her behalf about Ethan.

Lulu wants Jason to admit that he wants to kill Luke as payment for Jake's death. She says she realizes that Luke took away any chance for him to know Jake, apologizing for Luke's taunting him. Jason tells her he isn't going to hurt Luke, because he wants him to suffer by remembering what he did to Jake. As Jason finishes a phone call with Diane, Maxie arrives to apologize for Lulu's visit. She explains to him how she told Lulu it would be a bad idea for Luke to come back to Port Charles because Jason would probably kill him.

for Lucky but her. Sam and Spinelli come into the ER. Patrick and
Robin join them while Spinelli is talking about Sam doubling over in
pain. Sam tells Robin she just had a little cramping. Robin
thinks Sam is pregnant because of Spinelli's babbling. Jason tells
Elizabeth to go to Lucky and be honest. He reminds her that that is what
went wrong with them the first time. She says there is more to the truth
than how she feels. Jason advises her to tell Lucky everything. She
is afraid she is too late.

and telling her he has been looking for her. He wants to know about
the cramps. Sam assures him she is okay. She realizes he came to
rescue her from the hostage crisis. Jason updates her on Spinelli. They
nervously assure each other that he will be okay. Sam blames herself
because she was at the hospital and didn't know to try to help him. Jason
tells her she didn't know what was happening. He tells her that the cops
didn't even know. She is surprised the cops let him help. He
credits Dante. Sam says that the cramps weren't that bad but that Spinelli
wanted to make sure she was okay. She tells Jason that he wants them
to have a baby so bad that he has convinced himself that she is pregnant.

meeting Spinelli. Robin comes with the pregancy test results. Sam is
not pregnant. She and Jason look disappointed as Sam thanks Robin.
Robin leaves. Jason and Sam hug sadly. Jason and Sam are at Spinelli's
bedside with Maxie. Maxie is telling them how heroic Spinelli was.

he is braver than Jason. Jason and Sam leave to give them privacy.
Maxie pounding on the Penthouse door and
yelling. Sam lets her in. She wants to see Jason because Spinelli
has turned into Jackal PI. Jason comes to see Spinelli and is surprised to
find him acting like the character from his book. Sam and Maxie discuss
Spinelli. Jason wants Spinelli to focus and to bring back the $20 million
dollars that he sent into cyberspace. Spinelli thinks Jason is
joking and says he doesn't know about computers. Jason gives Spinelli the
computer and wants him to try. Sam and Maxie come in. Jason pulls Sam out
of the room. Jason wants to know what she can do to bring Spinelli back.
Sam thinks it's harmless but Jason says he needs Spinelli back now. Sam
shows Spinelli programs he made while he moons over Maxie. He still
doesn't know about computers. He talks about being a man of action. Jason
is at the Penthouse on the phone about the missing money. Edward
knocks. He wants Michael to work at ELQ. Jason tells him if he wants
Michael to work for him, he needs to talk to Michael. Edward wants Jason's
support but Jason doesn't think he has that much influence. Edward reminds
Jason that Michael has been paying for Jason's choices his whole like and
that this is Jason's chance to make things right. Sam wants to discuss
cases to try to jog Spinelli's memory but Spinelli thinks his talent is
being wasted on cheating spouses. He wants something juicer like
kidnapping amd murder. Sam reminds him that he was worried about her
taking chances and asks if he no longer wants her to get pregnant. He says
that's up to her but it would be a waste of a good partner. He says he
will take on the mean streets solo. Jason goes to see Sonny about
Michael and the ELQ job offer. Jason thinks it is a good idea but Sonny is
worried the Quartermaines destroying Michael like they did to AJ.
Jason tells Sonny that Michael is nothing like AJ. Sonny is worried that Edward will turn Michael against them,but Jason counters that Johnny would do the same thing. Sonny wants him to work at the warehouse. Jason wants him as far away from the business as possible. Jason thinks that as long as they are in the business, they are not in the position to give Michael a better life. He tells Sonny that Michael could learn a lot from ELQ. Sonny doesn't regret taking Michael from the Quartermaines and doesn't want Michael to be pulled into a power struggle. Jason tries telling him that Michael won't be put in that situation because he doesn't care what the Quartermaines think, he just wants his and Sonny's respect. Sonny doesn't want to risk Michael getting too close to Edward because Edward blames Sonny from taking Jason and Michael from him. Jason wants to give him options. Sonny agrees that it would be better to lose Michael to Edward than to their lifestyle. Jason runs into Johnny at Kelly's where he tells him about his run-in with Michael. Johnny says his choice could end up causing more damage than he thinks because Sonny and Anthony are volatile and Michael was the only chance to keep the peace. Jason arrives to see Edward, telling him that Michael is old enough to make his own decisions and he will respect that. Michael and Abby show up and Michael confronts Edward about his job offer. Michael agrees to take the job as long as Abby gets to work there too.
Michael says that as long as Edward keeps his word as far as Abby is concerned, he will work at ELQ for the summer. Edward wants to know when he can start. He tells him as soon as Jason says he is okay with it. Jason agrees with Abby that Michael should make this decision based on what he wants. Michael wants the pros and the cons. Jason tells him that Edward's love for him is genuine and wants to see him succeed, but he will try to control him based on what he thinks is his for his own good. Jason says to let him know what he decides and leaves. Carly visits Jason, freaking out that Jax had Brenda holding Josslyn. Jason is glad she kept her cool, then informs her that Michael is working for ELQ for the summer. Carly is totally against it but Jason tries to tell her that it will remove Michael from any aspect of the business. Carly is worried that Edward will get in Michael's ear, trashing her to him. Jason wants her to realize that it will keep Michael safe which is most important. Abby goes to talk to Jason, worried about how the Quartermaines will affect Michael. She wonders where she will be if Michael decides that he wants to be the Quartermaine heir. Jason says she'll be with Michael, only richer. She is afraid she will be the first casualty. Jason reassures her that Michael won't feel that way. Jason tells her to talk to Michael if the ELQ job is bugging her. He tells her about how he stole Michael from the Quartermaines when he was a baby and now this is Edward's chance to steal him back. Although he has thought about stopping it, Jason says that if Michael decides to live his life as a Quartermaine, it will make him safe. He compares Michael to Jake, wondering if it is worth losing Michael to keep him safe.
Jason and Abby talk about Michael. She asks
about his first love and he says they broke up over Michael. She
knows some of the story and Jason fills in the blanks. Abby thinks Jason
is sending Michael to ELQ as a way of apologizing for taking him. Later,
Carly comes to the Penthouse upset that she made a mistake in trying to
keep Michael from going to ELQ. She wants him to talk Michael out of it
but he refuses. Sam goes to Elizabeth's house because Elizabeth called
her. She wants Sam to give to Jason some of Jake's things for her.
Elizabeth starts to get upset and Sam wants to call someone. Elizabeth
blames herself for everything because of her lies. Sam tells her
that was a long time ago. Elizabeth tells her Lucky is Aiden's father and
Nik won't believe her. Sam tries to reassure her and advise her. Jason
asks Carly if she could go back would she do things differently.
Carly gets defensive. She is worried that Edward will ruin Michael like he
did AJ. Jason disagrees. She is afraid Michael will hater her.
Jason assures her that will never happen. Sam comes home and tells Jason
about what happened at Elizabeth's. She tells him what she told
Elizabeth and he says that was smart. She says she was speaking from
experience when they fell apart and how she had to find her way back to
him. He asks if she ever wonders why she bothered with all the
damage they did to each other. He asks why she didn't just write him off.
Sam says she tried but that knew she could never hate him. He wants
to know how she knew that. She says when she is with him she can be
herself. He says that's because she is perfect. They hug. Sam wants
to ask Jason a question and wants his first answer, no editing. She asks
how he felt when he heard about the pregnancy test. He says he thought it
would be cool. That was what she wanted to hear. They kiss.
Jason comes to the PI office upset that Spinelli left
the hospital. Spinelli has business to take care of but eventually
admits that it is not a case but Maxie. He did not like seeing her and
Matt together. Jason wants to take him back to the hospital.
He says Maxie can nurse him if she finds him. Jason tries to talk sense to
him but Spinelli thinks Jason wants him out of the way so he and Sonny can
do business. Sonny comes to the Penthouse upset that Jax subpeoned Brenda.
He thinks Jax is trying to wreck his marriage. They discuss Brenda's and
its possible effects on Sonny's marriage. Jason says Sonny can't keep
Brenda from testifying. Sonny says he can make sure Carly keeps her
daughter. Jason warns him that if he does anythng to Jax it will
cause more problems in his marriage. Maxie comes to the Penthouse about
Spinelli leaving the hospital. She wants Jason to do something. He
says he tried. Maxie wants him to keep Spinelli busy and out of
trouble while he works through his delusion.
Jason and Maxie continue to argue about Spinelli. He thinks the Spinelli they know is out of reach. Maxie feels that its all her fault but Jason assures her that Spinelli got his wish: he is a hero and saved the woman he loves. Maxie says she realizes why Sam is in love with him and that he is just warm and squishy inside. Maxie tells him to propose to Sam. She says that she doesn't believe in marriage for herself but Sam wants to get married. Jason wants to know how she knows that. She tells him its just simple logic. Sonny calls Jason to help him with Spinelli. At Sonny's, Jason takes Spinelli's gun as Sonny rants about how Spinelli lost his money. Jason brings Spinelli back to the Penthouse where he fills Sam in on what happened with Sonny. Jason warns Spinelli to stay away from Sonny. After Jason refuses to give him back his gun, Spinelli leaves. Sam and Jason talk about what is going on with Spinelli. When Sam mentions Maxie, Jason asks her if Maxie makes good points and is perceptive about her. Jason tells Sam that Maxie told him that Sam loves him and says he loves her too. Jason starts to ramble, confusing Sam as he talks about something she may want that he hasn't considered, although he did when they were together before. Sam thinks he is talking about a baby but then realizes he is talking about marriage.
Carly arrives at the Penthouse where she tells Jason that Jax subpoenaed Sonny, Brenda, Michael and Morgan to testify in the custody case. She wants him to be prepared because Jax will use Jake against him. Jason and Carly are both worried about Morgan but Jason assures her that Michael can handle it. Carly is afraid that the court will side with Jax but Jason assures her that they won't. She wants Jason to promise to never let her get married again. Sam arrives at the Penthouse with coffee and bagels. Jason offers to help her at work since she is covering for Spinelli. She declines, saying he has his hands full and they talk about Jax and Carly's custody case. Jason tells her that Carly doesn't want to ever get married again. Jason and Sam discuss marriage. Jason says two people really have to know each other if a marriage will work but Sam brings up that 50% of marriages end in divorce. He thinks it depends on the couple.

She accepts him and likes their life just the way it is.
tells Jason she is happy the way things are and she doesn't need a piece
of paper to tell her he loves her. He says if that is how she feels. She
asks if that is how he feels. Jason loves her and he can't imagine there
ever being anyone else. Sam wants to leave it that way. She
doesn't want him to change for her. He says they accept each other the way
they are. She agrees saying people don't need a grand gesture to show how
they feel. He just wants her to be happy. She says she is. He
asks if she feels like something is missing. She doesn't and asks if he
does. He asks how she feels about marriage then apologizes for asking. She
says she is afraid and talks about the con marriages in her past. He
acknowledges that she has a bad association with marriage. She asks
how he feels about it. He admits his marriage was mostly bad. She
doesn't want to risk what they have. He understand her not wanting to get
married, especially to him with his bad history and his job. She has
no problem with him or his job. He doesn't want to push her into something
she doesn't want but is worried she is holding back. She assures him
she is not. She doesn't want to pressure him. He doesn't feel pressured he
just doesn't want the past to keep them from something they might want.

up about marriage. Maxie is excited because she thinks they are getting
married. Jason goes to Sonny's about the shooting. Jason says the shooter
was trying to scare Brenda not hurt her. Sonny says someone is sending a
message and they need to send one back. Sam tells Maxie they are not
getting married. Jason had to leave before they got to that. Maxie thinks
Jason is building up to asking. Sam does not think Jason is the marrying
kind. Maxie asks if Sam loves him and wants to wake up with him for the
rest of her life. Sam does. Maxie asks where the baby fits

wants her to get married and put everyone out of their misery. Jason
is the Penthouse setting the site on his sniper rifle. Carly
comes. She is afraid Jax is going to win because Sonny threatened
Jax in front of the mediator. They talk about the shooting. Carly says it
could have been her and Joss and asks if Jax is right. He says the pain of
losing her mother would outweigh the danger for Joss. She looks at
the rifle and asks him not to do what he is about to do.

because Anthony is dangerous and psychotic. Spinelli brags about
intimidating Sonny. Sam tries to placate him but Spinelli leaves to go to
Jason's and get his gun. Maxie wants to work on the proposal. Jason starts
to put her off so she tells him about Spinelli and Anthony and says he

getting married. Sam and Maxie argue about the proposal. Sam says
they are not getting married and they only discussed it because of Maxie.

main concern is Spinelli anyway. Maxie thinks that curing Spinelli is the
only way to keep him alive and that Jason and Sam getting married is the
cure. Sam says her and Jason like their life and they are not getting
married. Jason asks Spinelli what he thinks about him proposing to Sam.
Spinelli calls him a sap and tells him to find another girl to marry
because he needs Sam at the office. Sam comes home upset about Maxie
pushing marriage on them. Jason wants to forget up Maxie and talk about
Sam's feelings. She says they already talked about it. He says they
talked around it. She doesn't think they would have ever talked about it
if not for Maxie. He says that when something is important to her she acts
like she doesn't want it because she is afraid if she gets it, it will be
taken away. She says they got engaged before because they thought he was
going to die. He corrects her that he asked her to marry him because he
loves her. She says they never got married instead things fell apart. He
talks about how brave Sam is so why is she afraid to take the next
step. He asks if she is afraid he is going to lie to her or hurt her
again. She says they have put that behind them. He takes her hand and asks
her to trust him and tell him what she wants. She wants them to spend the
reat of their lives together just like they are. He says they can have
more than that. He loves her and it is just not enough to say it, he wants
to prove it to her. Maxie starts pounding on the door and yelling about

fake job he gave Spinelli. At the PI office, Sam tells Spinelli she won't

Jax did. They also talk about the effect it could have on Sonny's
marriage. Then they talk about Jax and how he went to far involving
Michael and Morgan but couldn't have guessed how hard Sonny was going to
hit back. Jason says Carly didn't either and she is not going to be okay
with it. Molly knocks and Sam lets her in. She thinks her plan
was wrong but the goal of getting Carly and Jax back together was right.
She asks if Sonny set up Jax. Jason say he can't answer that. Sam
says Jason had nothing to do with it. Molly says that Sonny did and
lays out her logic for why. Jason says that they all want what's best for
Joss but something people get so caught up in being right they forget what
is important and Molly says that Joss needs both her parents. Jason
and Sam agree. Sam says that they should have found a way to compromise.
Molly says now they hate each other. Sam explains that break-ups can
be really complicated and painful. Molly says it is proof that love
is a lie. Sam brings up her books and asks if she thinks none of those
people loved each other. Molly says love is like unicorns, dragons or
wizards, wonderful to read about but not real. She uses Alexis' love
life as her example. She says if love was real it would last. Sam looks at
Jason and says for some people it does. Molly goes back to Jax and Carly
and Sonny and Brenda. Jason interupts to tell her sometimes things
don't work out but it doesn't mean that they weren't in love. He looks at
Sam and tells Molly love does exist and she will know it when she finds
it. She says he and Sam are proof that love lasts but then says she
probably just jinxed it by saying that. Sam says love doesn't always
happen like it does in books. She says she and Jason have had their
problems and that they thought that they were over but if they had given
up on love they wouldn't be where they are right now. Molly says she
always thought that love was magical and could overcome anything and that
Jason and Sam's has and that it is remarkable. Molly asks what if
you never find love at all and Sam tells her the biggest mistake people
make is searching when they should just let it happen. She assures
Molly she will fall in love someday and it will better than she ever
imagined. Later, Jason comes up behind Sam and hugs her, asking if she has
to work tonight. Sam says that things are quiet and that Spinelli's bakery
stakeout is their biggest case. They talk about Spinelli's case.
Jason says he will deal with Spinelli and asks if she has plans for
tonight. Sam says no. He wants to take her to dinner on the roof
with the great waterviews. Sam asks what he is up to.
Sam is surprised that Jason wants to have dinner with her on a roof. He tells her the place and asks if she will come. Sam mentions just eating at the Penthouse but Jason wants it to be special. When Jason won't tell Sam anything about his plans, she talks about how matter of fact he is, and continues pushing him for details. After realizing she will have to go to the roof for answers, Sam agrees to the dinner. As he pushes her out the door, Jason tells her to wear what makes her feel beautiful. They kiss. Jason calls Maxie over to help him set up the perfect proposal. Maxie says she will set the entire thing up then freaks when he doesn't have a ring. After putting plans in motion, Maxie tells Jason he has to wear a blue shirt to match his eyes. Maxie wants Jason to practice what he is going to say on her, but they are interrupted by a jeweler, who at first mistakes them as a couple. Maxie is looking through the rings, when Jason finds the perfect one. Sam visits Alexis, wanting to know if she ever wishes she wasn't raising Kristina and Molly alone. They talk about love and Sam tells her about Molly's visit. Alexis figures out that she and Jason are talking about settling down. After getting Jason to change shirts, Maxie takes the ring onto the balcony to view it in natural light. Within a moment, the ring falls off her finger and over the balcony.
Jason and Maxie are looking over the balcony but can't see where the ring went. They rush out to find it. Sam and Alexis talking about Jason's potential proposal. Alexis wants Sam to be happy but has concerns about Jason's job. Sam feels completely safe emotionally with Jason. Alexis says she is envious and she gives Sam her blessing. They hug. Kristina comes in and Alexis tells her about the engagment. Kristina squeals and runs to hug Sam. Jason and Maxie with flashlights digging in the bushes. Maxie keeps apologizing. She says he doesn't have time to replace it before he proposes. He doesn't think he needs a ring to propose; she thinks he should wait until he gets another ring. Jason on the roof with a beautiful candlelit dinner set up. Sam comes asking if she is late. He says she is perfect. Sam comments on his shirt and he tells her he can wear blue if she wants. She doesn't want him to change a thing for her. Jason talks about what Sam means to him. She says candles and dinners have nothing to so with real love. He says tonight they do. Jason says he never got the connection between things like jewlery to symbolize what is in your heart but that without the symbols you start taking things for granted and he has done that to her because he counts on their future together but never said the words or asked how she feels. Jason says there is no point to holding yourself back from what you really want and brings up how he wanted to tell Jake that he really loved him and was his father but he never got the chance. He learned from what he lost and he will never take time or love for granted again. Jason takes her hands and tells he how much he loves her and asks her to marry him. Sam says that she didn't know love was before she met him and he changed everything for her. He asks if that is a yes and she says she needs to answer in her own way. She talks about how they were engaged before but she needed him and didn't know who she was without him and that is why she fell apart when they broke up. He asks if it is different now. She says yes, that she does not need to be married so if he asking because it will make her happy, she is already happy. She wants what they have for the rest of her life and doesn't care about the ceremony or ring or dress. She just wants him. He says she has him for the rest of his life but if it is okay with her, he still wants them to get married. She says weddings are complicated and Kristina is already deciding where they should get married. He is surprised she told Kristina they were getting married. She says she told Alexis who told Kristina. He asks if she told them the answer and if he should call them. She says she can answer on her own and then says yes. They kiss. Then he tells there is a problem. He tells her Maxie lost the ring and said he couldn't ask Sam without a ring so he had to find a substitute. He pulls out a lugnut and shows it to her. She asks him to put it on her finger and he does. He says it is just until they get the real ring and she can pick whatever she wants. She says she has everything she wants. She can't believe they are getting married. He tells her to believe it and they kiss again.
Jason and Sam looking over the balcony. She wishes she could have seen his face when Maxie dropped the ring. Jason says she will find it. They go inside. Sam likes the ring she has; it is unconventional like them. They start to kiss but Monica knocks. Sam goes upstairs. Monica knows about Jake being kept out of thier lives and wants to know how Jason let it happen. He says they did it to protect everyone. Monica doesn't want retribution, she just wants answers. Monica says Jake was 4 and talks about when Jason was 4. She says she lost that little boy and then she lost the bigger boy in a car accident. She wants him to know what that loss meant to her and Alan. He knows but he thought he was doing what was right for him. She asks about him giving Michael to Carly and Jake to Elizabeth. He thought he was doing what was right for them. Monica asks what about what was right for them. What about them making some decisons; what right does Jason have to do all that. She says if he wanted to make life and death decisions he should have been the doctor he was going to be and then maybe they wouldn't be mourning a little boy. Jason doesn't know what to say. They sit down and Monica gives him a picture of himself when he was 4 with his big wheel. He says he thought Jake would be safer with Lucky and Liz. She asks about Michael. He says he helped bring Michael back. She says for however long it will last when so much has already been lost. She is done talking about it for now. She says if he ever wants to talk she is a good listener and she leaves. Sam comes down while Jason is looking at the picture and talks about Danny's big wheel. Jason tells her the picture is him. Sam knows; she was listening. She asks if he is okay but the door knocks before he can answer. Elizabeth hugs Jason and says she had no where else to go. She sees Sam and says she shouldn't be there. Sam tells her to stay and goes to get her something to drink. Elizabeth apologizes but says that the guilt over losing Jake just won't stop. She says that Lucky's wife said that she killed her son and is using his death to lure Lucky into a love trap. Jason says she wouldn't do that. She says she does crazy things when she feels alone and lost like she did with him. Sam comes back with water for Elizabeth. Elizabeth sees the lugnut and Sam explains that it is kind of an engagement ring. Elizabeth is shocked that Jason is getting married. Sam starts to explain about the ring but stops and says that they are getting married but haven't really told anyone yet. Elizabeth congratulates then and goes to leave because she is intruding. They says she is not but she says she needs to stop leaning on the men in her past, all her kid's fathers. Then she says that sounds bad. Sam tells her not to let other people define, label and judge her or she will start judging herself, that they all have things they wish they had done differently. They can just take responsibiity when it is theirs to take and that Elizabeth is not responsible for Jake's death. Sam says we lean on places we know will hold us up and that is why Liz is there and she understands that. Sam goes upstairs. Liz tells Jason Sam's words helped. Liz wants him to tell Sam she said thank you. He says she doesn't have to go. She says she does because she keeps telling herself she is not going to do this. He says they hae a connection and Liz says he was so much more than that. She leaves. Jason picks up the picture. Sam comes down and apologizes for blurting out the engagement. He says it was fine and what she said after helped. He says Elizabeth needs to find the person she used to be and he thinks she can do it. He puts the picture down and says not all of us can. Later Jason is on the balcony. Sam comes out with the picture and asks how he is doing. He is trying to get his mind back to where it was earlier, looking ahead instead of feeling loss and regret. Sam says she keeps looking at the picture and it reminds her that he has a motorcylce. She asks if he wants to take her for a ride. He says for old times sake. She says for that and for the boy in the picture. They head out.
Jason is coming down the stairs as Sam is coming in off the balcony fanning herelf. He asks if she wants him to turn up the air. She says it is okay since he doesn't like the air. He is turns it up saying she shouldn't be uncomfortable but she says it is one of the adjustments they are going to have to make. He hugs her from behind and takes her hand to play with the lugnut. He says he is giving Maxie one more day. Later, Alexis comes over. She hugs Sam saying how happy she is for her. Alexis says that since she will be Jason's mother-in-law they should probably hug and they have a really awkward hug. Alexis is practically hyperventilating while saying how happy she is. Sam asks if she is alright and Jason asks if she needs a glass of water. Alexis wants to hear about the proposal then notices there is no ring. Jason point out the lugnut. Jason and Sam acts like it is the real ring while Alexis tries to cover her dismay with polite remarks. Sam tells her they are kidding and Maxie lost the real ring. Sam tells her how wonderful the proposal was. Alexis is happy for her but wants to speak to Jason. Sam goes to the kitchen. Alexis tells Jason she doesn't think this is a good idea anymore. She thinks marriage will change things between them and ruin what they have. Jason disagrees. Sam peeks in. Alexis talks about how now they have their own space and be themselves. Jason asks if she is okay. She is not. Sam comes in and gives Alexis a brown bag and says she knew this was coming as soon Alexis came in the door. Sam wants a word with Alexis so Jason goes into the kitchen. Alexis is breathing into the bag. Sam taps her on the shoulder and informs her that they are getting married. Sam understands that Alexis is giving them the benefit of her own experience but its not necessary. They talk about how Alexis believes things will always go wrong in a relationship and Sam wants her to give herself the chance. Alexis says how did you get to be so smart and Sam says she has a great mother. Sam asks if she is okay. She says she is much better but she is still worried about her and Jason. She leaves. Jason comes out of the kitchen and Sam says welcome to having a mother-in-law. Jason adjusting the theromstat to make it cooler. He goes out on the blacony where Sam is and hugs her from behind. Sam talks about Alexis' visit and teasing her about the ring. Jason asks Sam if she thinks its true that things will change. She thinks things will change but that they will still be unconventional. He kisses her cheek and holds her close.
Jason tells Sam that Maxie is still looking for the engagement ring. She asks him if she is going to get it at the engagement party. He is shocked to hear there is a party but says he can handle it as long as they are together. They kiss and Carly interrupts. Jason and Sam say they aren't hiding their engagement but Carly is upset about how many people know before her. Carly wants to talk to Jason alone but Jason tells her anything she has to say she can say in front of them both. Sam thinks Carly is just shocked that she and Jason are getting married and that she didn't screw it up. Jason just wants Carly to show he and Sam consideration. They want her to respect them the way they respect her. Carly refuses to be happy about it. Jason questions how this is different than them having a baby; Sam says marriage is more of an emotional commitment and Carly feels replaced. Jason lets Carly know that they need boundaries because Sam is first for him. Carly leaves. Jason tells Sam that he doesn't want Carly to feel like he is choosing Sam over her but he is. Maxie tells Jason and Sam that she and Jackal PI found the ring in the sewer. Maxie tells Jason she will have the ring cleaned and give it to him but he owes her. Jason agrees to a favor for Maxie, sealing the deal by kissing Sam.
Jason visits Sonny with an update. Sonny says if its about business, he'll listen, but if its about the bitch Brenda, he wants nothing to do with it. Jason starts cleaning up the room as he tells Sonny that they still aren't any closer to finding the 20 million. Jason and Sonny talk business but Sonny flips when Jason brings up Brenda. Jason says Anthony is getting ready to make a move and for them to win, Sonny needs his head clear by talking about what happened and bearing it. Jason brings Sonny lunch and they talk about the letter Brenda wrote him. Sonny says that Jax tried to pay him back for what happened with Carly by taking his wife. Jason tells Sonny he can't burn his life down because his kids need him and he would be letting Jax win. Jason tries to talk Sonny into taking his medicine but Sonny brings up the question: would Jason take pills that would control his brain and become dependent on them? Jason says he can't make a move against Anthony with Sonny like this. Sonny accuses Jason of not knowing the pain he is feeling because he has never loved anyone like this. Jason wants Sonny to accept that Brenda just left and that its over. Jason leaves with the orders to watch Anthony and stop any shipments coming into the warehouse.
Sam and Jason talk about their upcoming wedding. She tells him that Maxie hired them a wedding planner to make things up to them. Sam wants his help with the planning and decisions. Sam tries to talk to Jason about centerpieces but he just plays with her hair. He tells her all that is important to him is getting to the "I dos." She said the big wedding is important to everyone else and suggests letting Maxie plan everything. He is afraid everything will be pink. They kiss. Shawn arrives to talk about Carly, afraid that Jax is still a threat. Jason offers Shawn a job but he declines. Before he leaves, Shawn asks Jason to make sure to keep an eye on Carly. Sam wants to get back to planning but Jason wants to set a date first before getting flowers and a band. Sam teases Jason about having to dance at the wedding. She doesn't want them to become traditional. They kiss. Sam tells him she knows exactly who they are; he is the strong, silent type that would do anything to make his woman happy, and that their life is going to have a lot of dancing. Sam sets up a romantic dinner for the two of them: takeout and beer. Jason suggests that as the reception too. They use Sam's ring to let fate decide the wedding date. Carly barges in claiming that Jax is back and she needs him to protect Josslyn. Carly uses Jake to get Jason to agree to help her. Sam circles the wedding date on the calendar as Jason and Carly rush through the rain. As Carly urges Jason to go faster, he swerves off the road to miss Elizabeth's oncoming car.
As Jason and Carly rush to get to Josslyn, Elizabeth is distracted by Siobhan, leading their cars to swerve off the road to miss one another. While looking for Siobhan, Elizabeth finds Jason in his car, unconscious. Sam smiles to herself looking at the calendar and thinking about her upcoming wedding. Elizabeth finds a purse and starts calling for Sam, only to find Carly. Elizabeth checks on Carly then tries to find cell service with no luck. After Elizabeth finds Siobhan, Dante comes upon the scene. Dante leaves to call an ambulance while Elizabeth checks on Carly. Dante works to get Jason out of the car but Elizabeth tells him not to move him. She checks Jason, saying his breathing is shallow and his pulse is fast. Elizabeth fills Dante in on her argument with Siobhan. Carly calls for Jason to wake up so that they can go get Josslyn. The patients are brought to GH. Monica is on hand when Jason is rolled in on a stretcher. After checking on Jason, Monica calls Sam to inform her of the car accident.

Sam tells her about Carly's drama. Sam is worried about Jason waking up during the tests and not knowing what is going on. Monica assures her he is strong. Moinca comments on how good Sam is for Jason but Sam says it is the other way around. Monica says that Sam accepts Jason for who he is and she could never do that. Sam tells her he was glad that she came over and brought the picture. Monica has no doubt that Jason will make through because she can't have any doubt. Sam can't either. Monica and Sam are upset about Carly and her emergencies hurting Jason. Epiphany stops Carly from using the phone. Carly sees Sam and Monica and rushes over asking about Jason. Sam says they don't know and asks Carly if she is proud of herself. Sam goes off on Carly for busting in on her and Jason with her problems. Carly tries to defend herself but Sam is having none of it. Sam accuses Carly of using Jake to get Jason to go with her. Monica looks angry to hear that. Sam says Carly uses other people's pain to get what she wants and now Jason is hurt because of her. Carly is shocked that Sam is blaming her. Sam says Carly doesn't even know if Joss is missing but she used this to stake a claim on Jason. Carly says Sam has no idea what it's like to lose a kid and Sam smacks her. Sam says this has nothing to do with Carly or her kids it is about Jason. Carly claims to know more about Jason being hurt more than Sam will ever understand. Monica interupts and says that dubious honor is hers. She asks Carly if she wants to compare losses and walks away disgusted. Sam talks about how Carly uses Jason and never gives anything back. Carly tells Sam not to underestimate what she and Jason mean to each other and tells her she is not going anywhere. Sam hopes loving Carly has not cost Jason his life.
Patrick tells Sam, Monica and Carly that Jason has a severe head trauma but he can't properly diagnose him until he gets the scans. Patrick allows Sam to briefly see Jason. Sam talks to Jason, telling him she is not going to plan their wedding alone because the lugnut means they're in it together. She wants him to come back so he can give her the ring she knows he wants to give her. She wants him to know that no diamond will ever mean more to her than the lugnut. Carly witnesses Sam's emotional moment with Jason. Carly tells Sam she wants to see Jason, no matter what she and Monica say. Sam needs to focus on staying strong for Jason.

Edward is afraid of losing Jason for real this time but Sam assures him that Jason will come back. She tells Edward about their engagement. Sam promises to take care of Jason for Edward and for Lila. Edward reflects on Jason's time as Jason Quartermaine. Patrick needs a family member to sign a consent for Jason's emergency surgery. Patrick and Matt describe the swelling because of the head trauma but are confident they can get the job done in surgery. After a brief argument with Sam, Carly leaves with Olivia. Monica trusts Patrick's judgement but Sam is afraid it is too risky. Monica takes her stand as Jason's mother so Sam announces that she is his fiancee and that she has rights that she wants to exercise.

Edward interupts to say that marrying Sam is the best thing that could happen to Jason. Patrick and Matt interupt. Patrick says it is a serious matter and needs their attention. Matt thinks it is too soon but Patrick cuts him off to get Monica's authorization to move forward. Sam wants to wait and give Jason a chance to wake up on his own. Matt and Patrick argue about Jason's treatment until Monica tells them to take their sibling rivalry someplace else because she wants to know the options. Patrick says their best option is a biopsy. Edward trusts Patrick because he saved Jason before. Sam says Jason is not afraid to die but he does not want to be incapacitated. She wants a guarantee that that won't happen. Patrick can't give it to her but its worse odds if he doesn't go in. Sam wants to know the odds. Monica tells Sam to stop it, that she is not his wife yet. Moncia and Sam start to argue and Monica says she is his mother. Sam says she doesn't want to disrespect Monica but she and Jason only spoke a few times in the last several years and Jason would want Sam to chose. She is not convinced he should have the procedure. Edward tells Sam that they all want the same thing but Monica is the one to make the decisions. Monica says maybe they can get together on it. Matt suggests they consult with Robin and let her decide. Patrick comes back and says Robin agrees with him. He leaves to prep Jason. Sam knows they trust Patrick but she does not like doing this without Jason's permission. Monica says you have to put your odds on the best chance you have and they need to do this for Jason. Sam waiting as Jason is being brought to surgery. Sam tells him that Monica thinks this is for the best and since she is his mother and a doctor, Sam guesses she is right. She says it will be all over when he wakes and that he has to wake up so they can get married. They take Jason into surgery. Patrick doing the surgery on Jason.

When Sonny arrives at the hospital, Sam fills him in on Jason. She tells him Patrick is doing the biopsy. Sonny asks Sam if she has seen Robin, prompting her to go off on him for not being more worried about Jason. She doesn't understand what could be so important compared to everything Jason has done for him. Monica tells Sam that the biopsy is done, and they realize they made the right decision. She tells Sam that she realizes that she knows Jason better than anybody, so she should have a say in what happens to Jason. They discuss the engagement and Jake. Sam gives Monica a picture of Jake from Jason's wallet, saying she thinks Jason would want her to have it. Sam tells Monica the picture she gave Jason of himself meant a lot to him.

looks for reassurance from Patrick that Jason is going to be fine, but he
tells her it will be a step by step process. Sam sits by Jason's bedside,
where she tells him that his family has been there with her the entire
time. Sam tries to stir Jason by telling him that she ordered him a pink
tuxedo. She begs him to say something, and he squeezes her hand, waking
up. Patrick tries to look at Jason, but he insists he is fine and needs to
get to Carly. Sam forbids Max from telling Jason what is going on with
Sonny and Josslyn. Max fills Jason in on Spinelli, but he can see that
something is wrong. Jason wants to know what is happening with Sonny,
despite Sam's efforts to keep it from him. When Max tells him that Jax
grabbed Josslyn, Jason attempts to leave. Sam tells Jason that if he
leaves, he loses her. Sam is upset that Jason is only worrying about
Carly, rather than taking care of himself. Both agree that there is a lot
going on, but they don't want to fight. He tells her that if she wants him
to stay at the hospital, he'll stay. She agrees to let him call Carly,
then jokes with him saying she will cancel the pink tuxedo. As Carly tells
Jason that Josslyn is home, Sam arrives on the scene to find Jason
collapsed on the floor.
Patrick fills Sam in on another round of Jason's tests. Matt interrupts, saying that Jason's seizure might be the result of the surgery.

As Sam works in Jason's hospital room, Carly comes to see Jason. They discuss Jason's seizure. Carly wants to help, but Sam tells her the only thing she can do to help is go home. Carly leaves, while Sam tries to reassure herself that Jason is going to make it through. Sam can't hold back tears as she continues to wait for news about Jason.
Sam tries to keep Jason occupied as he gets restless in bed. He wants to check on Sonny, but she is not having it after his phone call with Carly ended with a seizure. Jason and Sam discuss when he needed the surgery last time. Jason recalls how much he hated it when he woke up after his original accident. Sam wonders if it was a mistake for them to get engaged, because he always ends up in the hospital. Sam teases him about getting out of the wedding preparations and the pink tux. Patrick and Robin arrive with test results, but she ends up telling Jason about Sonny shooting a gun off in her house. Jason apologizes, but Sam has to stop him from getting out of bed. Patrick tells him Sonny is not worth risking his life. They tell Jason and Sam that there is something non-organic in his frontal lobe, which shifted, causing his seizure. Patrick tells them they have to remove the object, because Jason can't live with a ticking bomb in his head. Despite Patrick's diagnosis, Jason doesn't want to have another surgery. As Sam asks for other options, Jason has another seizure. Jason agrees to more tests, assuring Sam that he is going to be okay because they are getting married.
Sam in the hall outside Jason's room. Patrick comes and asks how she is. She would be better if she had answers. He and Robin are doing all they can to figure out what is going on with Jason. Sam asks about Jason having another seizure. Patrick says it is better if it happens in the hospital where he is surrounded by professionals. Jason is meeting with Max and giving him instructions. Jason says if something happens to him. He is interupted when Sam and Patrick come in. Sam throws Max and the other men out. In the hall, Max asks if she is mad. She says he was supposed to be handling things so Jason could get better. Max says Jason called the meeting, not him. Sam wants to know what is going on. Max says Jason is making arrangements in case he doesn't make it. Sam goes back into the room and tells Patrick she wants to speak to Jason alone. Patrick leaves. Sam asks Jason if he remembers a project they worked on with Michael and how Jason would not let him give up. Jason asks if Sam thinks he is giving up. Sam says Max told her he was making plans. He can't pretend it might not happen. Sam says he can. She wants him to be positive. He says he is but alot of people depend on him and he has to make sure they will be okay, that she will be okay. Sam says losing him is not okay. He says okay. They decide to talk about something happy. He brings up centerpieces. She says high or low, then says they have so many decisions to make. He says they have chinese food and no pink so what else do they need. She says him out of the hospital. He is working on that. She wants him to work harder and not do business in there. He says he feels fine but she reminds him he could have a seizure. She wants him to take it easy. He says okay and closes his eyes. She says that's good and he answers low. She says what and he says low centerpieces that won't block the view of her. She says they are going to figure this out. He assures her it is going to be fine. Robin and Patrick come in. Robin wants to wait for Monica. Monica comes. Robin asks her about the condition of AJ's car in the first accident. Monica says it was totalled. Robin thinks the non-organic matter in Jason's brain is a piece of the dashboard. Monica says that is impossible since Jason had a closed head injury. Patrick says the impact could have sent the particle up his nose and into his brain. Sam wants to know if it has been there all this time, why is Jason seizing now. Robin thinks the last accident caused it to shift and become a problem. Jason thinks they can just take it out and everything will be okay. Patrick says its not that easy. Later, Jason and Sam are in his room. He wants to know what she thinks he should do. She says it is his decision. She asks what his gut tells him. He says that he wants to be her husband for as long as he can. She asks if that means he is going to have the surgery or not.
Jason and Sam discuss his options. He thinks she would want them to get married and try for a baby first. He wants them to make the decision together. She says they could wait and have their wedding and "make love like bunnies" as they try for a baby, but that might not happen if he has surgery. They talk about going to Hawaii, reminiscing on the time they spent there. Jason wants to know if she wants to risk their time now, to gain time later. Sam tells everyone that she and Jason decided on the surgery. Sam wants to make sure that Patrick and Matt's arguing won't affect the surgery. Monica tells Sam they made the right choice. Carly and Jason discuss Sonny and how Michael wants to replace Jason in the mob. Sam flips when she finds Carly dumping her problems on Jason right before his surgery. When Carly leaves, Jason tries to defend her, but Sam knows Carly would have Jason in a second if he would go. Jason assures Sam that he loves her, and they kiss. Sam stays with Jason until the last possible moment, and he is wheeled off to surgery. As Patrick begins surgery, Sam goes back to Jason's room, where she begins fantasizing about her honeymoon with Jason. It is six months after their wedding, and they are still in Hawaii. They begin kissing as he carries her to the bed. Elizabeth goes to her studio, where her Jason fantasy begins, with him as an architect. Carly goes to Jake's, where she fantasizes about a relationship with Jason, who runs the mob. Jason and Sam talk about her salvage work. They kiss. She wants to go swimming and make out on the beach.

Edward joins the celebration, as Tracy complains about Jason. Carly continues her fantasy as she plays pool with Jason. She tells Jason she has always dreamed of being back with him as partners. Elizabeth fantasizes that Jason is going away for work, leaving her behind. She begins to paint him. Jason and Sam talk about the treasure she is searching for, as a man lurks outside. As Elizabeth's fantasy continues, Jason finds her birth control, demanding to know if she is trying to get pregnant. As Jason gets ready to leave for business, Michael arrives demanding to know why Carly is with Jason. Monica walks in on Jason sniffing cocaine. As the surgery continues, Jason's pressure begins to drop.
A recap of everything before the surgery leads up to the continuation of the fantasies. Patrick works to control Jason's bleeding. Monica's fantasy resumes as she is shocked by seeing Jason with cocaine. He tries to justify it, saying that he has lived up to everything that she wanted for him, but at this cost. Carly's fantasy continues with Michael blasting Carly and Jason for turning on Sonny and taking his life from him.

Jason says Patrick will still blame himself if she disappears. That he will think she did not trust him enough to tell him. Robin says she is just exhausted. Jason thinks she is exhausted because she is going through this alone. She says she says she is not alone, she has him and leaving is the right thing to do. Jason asks about Emma. Robin says that when her parents were presumed dead, she missed them but she remembered them in a good way. Jason says that is how Emma sees her and how can she take that away from her.

Sam tells him not to think like that but he is afraid it is already too late. If something happens to her, he doesn't know what he is going to do. He thinks he may go after a doctor like Jason went after Floyd. He talks about how strange it was for Jason to go after him instead of just shutting down like he usually does when dealing with authority. Michael asks if Sam thinks the rage attacks are side effects of the surgery. Robin asks if Jason was the one who donated the money to rebuild the bridge. He did. She asks why and he says because he missed it. She asks what he thinks of it. He thinks it sucks. So does she.

Carly is worried about the check-up thing and points out how he keeps losing it lately. She wants to know what is going on.

He says Abby died because of him. Jason is at the Penthouse. He turns on the DVD. Franco says he sees him, a portrait of rage. Sam continues to try to comfort Michael, He loves Abby but now the love has no place to go. Sam holds him while he cries. Jason watching the DVD. Franco taunts him and ends with we're gonna be a daddy. Jason flips out.
Michael and Sam go into a hospital room. He is trying to keep it together; he needs to be strong. Sam tells him it is better to let it out, that keeping it bottled up will eat at him. Spinelli comes home to find the Penthouse trashed. He asks what happened. Jason says it was him. Jason tells him about his anger issues and how it is like after his accident. He tells Spinelli about meeting Sonny and how hehad to train himself to shut down. He says it doesn't work anymore. Spineli tries to reassure him but Jason points out all the mistakes he has been making. He says he almost left Sam unprotected again. Sam tells Michael he has a right to the grief and anger he feels. He starts yelling about being angry at himself. He says this is not the first time he got someone killed. Sam tries to tell him Claudia was different but Michael says it is him, he gets people killed. He thinks he is like is father. Sam says he is nothing like Sonny. She tells him that this is life and bad things happen. He needs to stop blaming himself. He calms down and says he needs to get Abby's family's number, that they don't know what he did. He leaves the room. Sam sighs and tells herself everything is going to be okay. Spinelli wants to help Jason figure things out. He asks about when the anger happens and the connection to Franco. Spinelli points out that in the past he has been able to shut down where Franco is concerned. Jason talks about how he could always shut down and know what to do but now he has lost that and when he makes mistakes, people he loves get hurt.

Spinelli starts to try to reason it out and Jason snaps at him when he mentions the honeymoon. Jason apologizes. Spinelli talks abotu friendship being about trust and forgiveness. Jason says he trust Spinelli, it is himself that he doesn't trust. Michael is on the phone telling Abby's mother what happened as Sam listens from the hall. Michael says he doesn't want any money from Abby's mother and promises never to bother her again. Sam comes back in and asks about the call. He tells her Abby's mother didn't care that she was dead and thought Michael wanted money for a funeral. Sam tells him she is sorry. Michael says the mother told him not to call the father because he took off before Abby was born. Michael wants to know how a mother could not love her child, no matter who the father was. Jason takes the DVD out of the laptop. He is holding it when Sam calls. She tells him that Abby died before they got there and that Michael is blaming himself. He is going to try to get a flight tonight. The door knocks. Jason says he has to go. Then he says he loves her. She loves him too. Jason opens the door to Monica. She is there because Robin told her about how Jason was at the PCPD. She is worried and brings up him skipping the check-up. He says he was busy. She asks if he trashed the Penthouse and tells him that these bouts of anger are not him. He tells her to leave it alone. Sam tells Michael Jason is coming. Michael says he doesn't have to but Sam says he wants to. Michael says people are lined up to help him and Abby's own mother doesn't care that she died. Sam doesn't think they should judge Abby's mother because they don't know the circumstances of her birth or if her father was a terrible person. Michael says that is no excuse. He says Carly would never turn her back on one of her kids no matter how she felt about their father. Sam is obviously upset by his words. He asks if she is okay. She says she was thinking about something but this isn't about her it's about Michael. He tells her he unloaded on her so she can unload on him. Sam sits down and starts to cry. Jason apologizes. Monica understands. She says a doctor she has to insist that he schedule a check-up. She gives him the cars of a specialist Patrick has already spoken to about his case. She asks him to give him a call. She touches his face and leaves. Michael sits down next to Sam. She apologizes and asks him to give her a minute. He knows this is about more than Abby. Sam says it is about Abby and her friends and how she wanted to help them because she couldn't help herself. Michael wants to know who hurt her. She tells him Franco raped her.
Jason lets Shawn in. Shawn is talking about a meeting that Jason obviously forgot about. Michael tells Sam he is sorry. She says she shouldn't have told him especially now. She says it is her problem and she is dealing with it. Michael asks, are you? Jason tells Shawn about Abby. Shawn asks if it was Franco. Jason doesn't think so but he is looking into it. Shawn says he will cover the meeting. Jason is worried about the message that will send. Shawn says he will make it clear that it is business as usual. He tells Jason Michael needs him and so does Sam. Shawn convinces him that him going in Jason place could work in their favor. Carly comes in and Shawn leaves. Shew thinks Shawn living with her is not going to work. Jason says he can't kill Franco if he can't find him. Sam says she had no right to dump thiso n him. He thinks she had every right. He asks if she talk to a professional about it. Sam changes to subject to him needing to focus on Abby and her funeral and allowing himself to grieve. He says so she can avoid dealing with what happened to her. He knows that is what she is doing because that is what he did. He says running from it is not the answer. Carly starts harrssing Jason about how he is not acting like himself. She tries to say that it is Sam's fault for getting married so soon after the surgery. Jason says none of this is Sam's fault. She wants to know none of what. He tells her she can help him by staying safe and listening to Shawn. He has to go catch a plane. He grabs his jacket and leaves. Sam says she will be okay. Michael used to say that too but he was lying. She says their situations are not the same. He says the details might be different but the pain is the same. He talks about pretending to be whole when you are not and it feels like you never will be. Michael says he spent months where she is now and talks about how he felt and acted. Sam says that she can't dwell on it, that terrible things happen to he all the time. She has to find a way to survive. Michael says you survive by facing it. He thinks that is why she told him. Because she wants help and knows she can trust him. Sam doesn't think she will ever be the same. Sam tells Michael the whole story and how she couldn't remember. He asks how she knows it happened. She tells him about how Jason saw it. Michael tells her what happened was out of her control and she can't blame herself. She says she had just gotten married and it was everything she wished and dreamed for and Franco took it all away. Michael knows she feels like she will never get past it but she will. Michael talks about what Abby did for him and says Jason can do that for her. Jason is outside the door listening. Sam wants to confide in Jason but she can't because he is so angry about not being able to protect her. Michael guesses that is what is behind his angry outbursts. He points out that there was nothing Jason could have done. Sam knows that but says Jason blames himself and she can't talk to him because that will make things worse.
Sam wishes she could talk to Jason but he feels so guilty. Michael tells her she can talk to him. Jason comes in. Sam hugs him and says she is glad he is there. Jason tells Michael he is sorry about Abby and asks if he can do anything for Michael. Michael says no one can do anything. Jason says Carly wants him to call he with an update. Michael doesn't want him to call Carly. Michael leaves to see about getting the body released. Jason and Sam talk about what Michael is going through. Jason lets her know he checked and Franco had nothing to do with it, it was an accident. Sam asked how he got released so quickly. Jason thinks Alexis had something on the judge. Sam was more worried than she let on. He knows but he is okay. He wants to know if she is. Jason and Sam hug while she talks about Abby being a good friend. Carly calls him and tells him to come back that someone tried to kill him at the meeting. She tells him that Bernie was shot and she can't reach Sonny. Jason hangs up. Sam asks if it was about Franco. Jason says a business deal went south. Michael is coming back in. He thinks Jason should leave and take care of it saying he can't do anything there. Michael is just waiting for them to finish the paperwork. He thanks Jason for coming and for not telling Carly. He tells Sam to go with Jason but she says she is staying. Jason agrees that Sam should stay. Jason kisses Sam's forehead, hugs her and leaves. Michael knows he should tell Carly but it is too hard to say. He talks about everyone saying sorry makes it more real. Sam volunteers to help him contact Abby's friends. Michael shows Sam the date book Abby gave him. The talk about how Abby was so full of faith and hope. Sam tells Michael Abby was happy with him. He talks about all the plans they had together that will never happen. He thinks they wasted time but Sam doesn't think Abby would change a second with him. Michael thinks he knows how Abby would want to say good-bye. Jason goes into the crime scene that is the restuarant. He asks Ronnie what happened. ROnnie says you tell me. Ronnie tries to antagonize Jason but he remains calm. Jason says he doesn't know who would have shot up the restaurant. A uniform comes and tells Ronnie they are done there. Ronnie and the cops leave. Max comes in. He tells Jason Bernie will be okay. Jason asks about the shooting. Max says it looks like the Soleitos. Jason asks why and Max doesn't know unless they are trying to expand. Max says the shooters took off as soon as they saw Jason wasn't there so it was a hit on him. Jason thinks he should have seen the set-up coming so this is on him.

Jason is still at the restaurant. Sonny comes in and asks about the shooting. Jason tells him Bernie will be okay and that he was the real target. Sonny asks if this would have happened if Jason was paying attention. Sonny says Jason needs to handle either his personal life or business but he doesn't seem to be able to do both. Sonny says he can't rely on Jason while Jason is chasing Franco. Sonny says he is not sacrificing everything for Franco. Jason never asked him to sacrifice anything. Sonny says Jason built this business too and Franco is a stupid reason to lose it. He tells Jason to shut down his emotions. Jason screams at him that he can't. Jason says he has been missing things he should have seen coming. Sonny asks why and Jason says he doesn't know. Jason tells Sonny about his rage attacks. Jason says that after the accident, Sonny was the one who taught him that his temper was manageable. Jason learned to stay calm so that he could be calm when Sonny was not. Jason wants to talk about retaliation. They know the shooters were Soleitos. Sonny says Anthony is connected to the Soleitos. Jason thinks Anthony set it up behind Johnny's back, that Johnny doesn't want a war. Sonny says Anthony does. Sonny asks if both Johnny and Anthony come at them, can they take them. Jason says no. Sonny says they have to keep the truce while they strengthen their position. Sonny asks how long it will take and Jason asks when Sonny can give it his full attention. Sonny says no can you? Jason says if he wants him to take Anthony out, he will try but he can't guarantee results. Sonny says stop making mistakes. Sonny tells him to get out of his head. Jason asks him if he could get of his head when he was having his episodes. Sonny says Jason helped him then and he is trying to help him now. Jason says Sonny is trying to manage him. Now Sonny knows what Jason dealt with all those years. Sonny talks about how he gave Jason a job to help him but how Sonny's life blew up and the pattern started of Sonny blowing up and Jason covering for him. Until last summer when Jason was in the hospital and not there to cover for him. Sonny may have gotten it together but he did a lot of damage. They talk about Robin. Sonny wants Jason to tell him how to help him. Jason says he can't. Sonny starts asking him when things went wrong. Jason already did this with Spinelli and it didn't help. Sonny asks what's going on. Jason tells Sonny about the cameras. He tells him about the surprises and leaving the house wide open. He says he gave Franco his chance. Sonny says to do what. Jason says Franco set a trap and he walked into it. He talks about losing control and not being able to think. Sonny says Jason found a way out. Jason says he let him out and tells him about the trail to the body at the hotel. Sonny says at least he didn't go after someone Jason loves. Jason says he should have been able to stop him. Sonny talks about how they lie to themselves that they can keep everyone sae but they can't. He tells Jason he is doing Franco's work for him by crucifying himself for what Franco did. Jason says Sonny don't know what he did. Sonny says tell me. Jason dodges saying Sonny is right. Business is first. Sonny says screw business. Jason is in trouble. He wants Jason to trust him to help and asks what is going on.
Sam lets Shawn in. He is there to check in with Jason. Jason isn't there. They talk about Michael and Abby. Sam says Michael has been through a lot. Shawn says they both have. He understands why Jason is so focused on Franco, that animal needs to pay for what he did. Sam looks freaked out. Sonny apologizes for not being around when Jason needed him, that he was being selfish like always. Jason tries to say he wasn't. Sonny says he was expecting Jason to clean up after him without thinking about what Jason was going through. Jason says he couldn't know what Jason didn't tell him. Sonny wants him to tell him. Sam asks Shawn if there is something she doesn't know about. Shawn asks if what she knows ins't enough. He lists Frano's crimes and she realizes he doesn't know about the rape. Sam asks about the business problem and Shawn tells her. Sam realizes Jason was the target. Jason has to relearn to control his anger. Sonny asks if the is possible with Franco out. Jason says he will just focus on the business. Sonny wants Jason to get help before someone he loves gets hurt or dies. Jason appreciates what Sonny is trying to do but he does not need Sonny's help, Michael does. He tells him about Abby. He tells him that Michael got he sent to Chicago because of the guy beating up strippers. Jason tells him how Sam went to Chicago with Michael and then he went. Sonny realizes that is why Shawn was at the meeting. Sonny says Jason should have told him that. Sonny now thinks Jason still has the ability to handle things. Jason tells him Michael is the one who needs him. Sam picks up a gun off the desk and puts it in the drawer. She notices the broken DVD in the trash. She checks the case in her jacket and sees that it is empty. Jason goes into the office. He looks at Michael's picture and flashes back to telling Michael that Franco sent Carter after him because of him. Jason goes home. Sam comes down and asks if he is okay. He asks about Michael but Sam says he isn't picking up. Sam tells him Shawn stopped by. She asks about Bernie. Jason says he will be okay. Sam tells him Shawn said the bullet was meant for him. Jason says Shawn talks to much. Sam wants to know if he was going to keep that from her. Jason says no but it wasn't Shawn's place to tell her. She says he is not really mad at Shawn. She picks up the broken pieces of the DVD and asks if that is what he is mad about. She asks if he watched the DVD. Sam tells him not to get crazy over it. It is just Franco messing with their heads. She says it is not true. She is not pregnant. Jason tells her not say it or think it or talk about it. He throws the broken DVD on the floor. Sam's phone rings. It's Michael. He needs her and wants her to come over.
Sam asks Jason if remembers going to get the tree last year. He laughs at the scrawny tree. Sam asks how anyone could resist that tree. Jason says it was easy but he couldn't resist her. She talks about them getting ready to decorate it and Michael, Molly and Spinelli showing up. She says it was a real romantic night. Jason says they will have to make up for it this year. Sam comments that they don't have a tree. Jason asks if she wants to go get one. He is sure there are some scrawny ones left. She says its up to him. He wants to stay there. He is just happy with her. They exchange I love yous. Jason says it is going to be okay. She knows. They kiss. Sam says she missed him. He missed her too. She says nothing can come between them. Jason has a gift for her. It is a phoenix figurine. He was thinking about what Robert Yi said at their wedding about the phoenix being the goddess of all creatures and that she could change bad luck into good. He says that is her. She loves him. She has something for him too. She wanted to give him something that would remind him of them. It is a dragon figurine. Sam says they say if you have the phoenix and the dragon together it is meant to be. Jason places them side by side and says there they are. They kiss.

Sam goes into a restaurant, sits in a booth and orders coffee. She finds a doll on the seat. She picks it up and starts to look around, freaked out. Robin comes to the Penthouse. She knows he already said no but she has nowhere else to go. He can't believe she still has not told Patrick. She tells him about sending her file to the specialist. He thinks she needs to wait and see, that the protocol should work. But she still needs to prepare for the worst. The waitress pours Sam coffee. Sam asks about the doll. The waitress says an attractive dark-haired man was just there. Sam grabs her jacket to go look for him. Patrick comes in looking for the doll. He talks about how badly Emma wants to doll. He says parenting is bittersweet and he wouldn't change it for the world. Jason argues with Robin about her not giving up. She talks about the relentless progress of the disease if the protcol doesn't work. Robin aplogizes. Jason says she gets to be angry. He wants her to tell Patrick so they can figure out what to do together. She wants him to change his mind. He says no but she can ask him to do anything else. She asks him to go in for his check-up. He says he is fine. She notices the fist clenching and tells him to tell that to someone who doesn't know him. She tells him to he could have serious consequences. He tells her to tell Patrick what is going on. She talks about not wanting to watch Patrick pretend things are okay for her sake. He tells her disappearing is not sparing her family, it's cheating them. Patrick tells Sam about how hard they had to try to find that doll for Emma and how Robin finally found someone selling them out of a trunk. He says it is worth it when you see your daughter open it on Christmas. Sam says then it was a good Christmas? Patrick tells her how wonderful his Christmas was. He asks about her Christmas. She says good. It was quiet, they way they wanted it. Patrick talks about them having their first family Christmas before they wer married. He said it helps with the questions about having kids that he is sure Sam is getting by now. Sam says people tend to steer in the other direction with them. Patrick asks about Jason because he never came in for his follow-up. He tells Sam how important it is that he come in. The waitress offers a refill but Sam switches to herbal tea. Robin tries to persuade Jason to go in for his check-up. Jason tries to turn it around on her but she goes right back to talking about his rage attacks. He says he is just mad but she thinks its neurological. She tries to question him about it. She says she wants to help him while she can. Sam tells Patrick how she admires him and Robin because after everything Lisa did they are still together and happy. She asks what his secret is. Patrick tells her that they were in a downward spiral and what he did with Lisa was always there. Sam asks how they got past it. They realized what they had and that they wanted to keep it so they rode it out. Sam says love is a powerful thing. Patrick adds so is having nothing left to lose. He says they realized that with honesty and living a truthful life, they could survive anything. Robin says no matter how it looks, she is fighting and trying to stay positive but it is hard because she is a doctor so she knows all the ways she could deteriorate. She is trying to set up everyone she loves for a long happy life and that includes him. She is afraid something is seriously wrong. She asks what if the rage gets worse and he hurts someone close to him like Sam. Jason says that won't happen. Robin says he is not in control because it is neurological. Jason knows why the rage started and it has nothing to do with the surgery. Robin realizes that Sam doesn't know what is going on or how bad the anger is. Jason doesn't want her to worry. Robin compares his situation to hers. Jason says he will get the exam if she will tell Patrick.
Robin accuses Jason of emotional balckmail. He calls it a deal. They argue. She can't believe he will put his life at risk if she doesn't tell. He says if that is what it takes to get through to her. She asks if he would blame himself if Franco did something to Sam. He asks where that came from. She says because Lisa tampered with the meds. Jason says Patrick will always blame himself. She needs to tell him the truth and tell him he is not blame. She may not take the guilt away but she can let him help her. The phone rings. It's a lead on Franco. Jason tells them to call him when they have proof. Robin sees his clenched fist. She grabs it and shows it to him telling him he doesn't even know he is doing it. She says it is neurological. He says she can't help him. He doesn't know that if he doesn't get checked out. If not for himself, then do it for Sam. She tells him they are starting a life together and not to throw it away. Robin says if she agrees to tell Patrick will he go in immediately to be checked. He says he can't promise immediately, that he has something to take care of. She asks how long it will take him if he gets a lead on Franco. He doesn't know but he doesn't want her to wait on him to tell Patrick. She is worried that something could happen in the meantime. He says he promised to get checked out, isn't that enough. The door knocks. Robin says if he doesn't get confirmation on Franco, he comes in to the hospital tonight and that is her final offer. Jason opens the door to Michael. Robin gives her condolences, tells Jason she will see him at hospital and leaves. Michael is looking for Sam but she is at work. Michael wants to know if Jason is going to ask about New Zealand. He says he figured if Michael wanted him to know, he would tell him. Michael says he has to pretend to be comforted with everyone else but him and Sam. Jason is glad the Sam was with him in Chicago and they got a chance to talk. Michael realizes that Jason heard them talking about the rape. Michael explains why Sam told him. Jason is glad she finally told somebody. Michael talks about how hard it is to open up about it. Jason appreciates any help Michael can give her. Michael says what about Jason. Michael knows Franco made him watch. Jason says there was nothing he could do to help her. Jason loses controls and shoves everything off the table. Michael tells him this is why Sam can't talk to him. Jason is looking at his phone. He is witing for comfirmation. Michael says there are better ways to help Sam. Jason can't let him go. Michael says while Jason is chasing him, Sam will be there alone trying to deal with what happened. The more focused he is on revenge, the more alone Sam feels. That is why she broke down with Michael because she can't open up with Jason. Sam needs comfort and support and all Jason has to offer is rage. Jason's phone rings. It is Robin calling to remind him of his promise to come in. Jason picks up his jacket and says he has to go. Michael tells him not to get caught up in the hate but to focus on what matters. He would give anything to have Abby back. Jason shouldn't let Sam slip away. Jason leaves. Robin is at hub. Jason comes in for his check-up. They are talking when his phone rings. It's confirmation on Franco. Robin begs him to stay as he heads out. Jason promises he will be back and leaves.
is sleeping. She dreams of passing out in the shower and Franco
catching her. She wakes up freaked out. Her phone rings. It's Jason. He
asks if everything is okay. She says yeah but is better now that she hears
his voice. He wants to know what is wrong. She says she is missing
him. He misses her too. She says its New Years and she want him with her.
She asks what happened, did he find Franco. Jason says Franco is
gone. She asks what happened. He doesn't want her to worry about
it. She asks if he is coming home. He says as soon as he can.
If Franco is gone, Sam wants Jason to just let him be gone. He says its
not that simple. She says it can be, at least for tonight. IT's New
Years Eve. He comments that they never care about the
holidays. Sam cares now. She wants a night where they forget about
everything and it is just them together. She tells him to come home to
her. He wants to start the new year right too and part of the is
making sure that she never has to deal with Franco again. All she is
worried about is spending time with him. She wants to lay in bed with him
and hold him and talk about today and tomorrow and the next day. He
knows but he has to finish this. She is only asking for one night.
She wants to kiss him at midnight and be in his arms on New Years. He
tells her he is on his way home. Michael is walking on the side of the
road. He steps over the barrier and onto the road. A light shines on
him, he hears a motor and puts his arm up defensively. Sam is looking at
the calendar on her phone. She realizes she is late. Jason and
Michael are unconscious by the side of the road, the bike is on its side
in the street.
