Luke awoke from his nightmare about Laura's rape when Bobbie stopped by. Bobbie told Luke that Lucky was staying at the Brownstone and Luke was relieved that Lucky had not shunned his entire family and asked Bobbie for her take on the situation. Bobbie inferred that she was still upset that Luke had withheld the truth about Carly from her, and told him that he had always made sweeping decisions about how much information people should know about their own lives. Bobbie told Luke that she still adored him, but his image as an infallible hero was tarnished. Liz tried to convince Lucky to patch things up with Luke and told him that what had happened between his mother and father had nothing to do with him. Lucky vented his anger over the fact that the special bond he had shared with his parents had been changed forever. Lucky was also upset when Liz thought that what had happened between her and Laura was not the same by pointing out that Laura had married Luke. Liz then went to Luke to talk to him about Lucky and wondered about her degree of responsibility in her own rape, but Luke assured her that she bore none. Luke also told Liz that he was grateful she was Lucky's friend. Lucky approached Helena at the docks and they returned to her yacht for further conversation. Later, Luke heard laughter coming from Helena's stateroom, but was unaware that she was entertaining Lucky. Robin started to feel the effects of going off her HIV protocol and feared for her life. Robin begged Tony for his help and he promised to see what he could do. Meanwhile, Jason was hopeful that the hit on Albany meant that Moreno had Michael after all, and thought that there was a chance to negotiate his return. After initially not understanding Jason's logic, Carly took heart in knowing that he would do anything to bring Michael back. Carly shared her optimism on Michael's return with Bobbie, but became offended when Bobbie seemed to show more interest in Tony's birthday party. Off of their fun filled night, Jax and Brenda returned to her cottage for breakfast and realized that Robin was missing. Brenda immediately thought that Robin's disappearance was connected to Jason and later confronted him.
