Sonny and Carly argued as usual. Carly was being her usual insecure self. She loves Sonny but is pushing him away. She said she loved him more than he loved her. Sonny interrupted her at one point to tell her that she could get pregnant; they could have the child they both wanted. She just commented on not being damaged goods anymore so she was okay.

They are going camping and his parents tell him they will contact him with arrangements for the trip. Then Jax's mother says she wants some time alone with Skye. She tells her that if she had known they would have liked her so much, they would have scheduled a longer trip then puts her bracelet on her wrist. Skye is dumbfounded and doesn't know what to say. His mom tells her what the symbols mean (happiness and peace). Skye is so shocked and then his mom leaves. Edward comes out of hiding and says that he's right. The Jax's have a big dollar ace up their sleeve. He keeps trying to manipulate her and finally she tells him that they are drilling for oil in Canada. Edward wants to know where and she doesn't know but she tells him there's a map (Jax put it in the safe and she saw him).
Later, Skye is trying to break into the safe when Jax comes in and finds her. He says "I knew it" and Skye flips around surprised. He tells her to skip the excuses. He says he's on to her and that she saw what's in the safe. She tries to cover and sound like she's excited about going camping. It's just a map. He apologizes and says he should have told her weeks ago but his plan hit a snag. Skye lights up thinking he's going to show her the map for Edward but she sees a black velvet box. She opens it and finds a huge diamond necklace and can't speak. "Oh my God" is all she can say over and over. She asks if this is for her and he says only on one condition. When she spins around she finds him on one knee and asks her to marry him. Skye's jaw drops.
Luke and Scotty come to blows over Scotty dodging Luke's questions about what happened to Laura in the attic. Luke knows Scott's hiding something and threatens to expose him right in front of the press next time. Scott continues to tell Luke he's blowing things out of proportion and that he knows nothing. Even when Luke shows him the sketch of the red-haired girl from the attic with Rick, Scott pretends he doesn't know her. He tells Luke he's like a broken record and give it a rest. Luke says he was there and Laura knows he was there and to answer the question of what happened in the attic. Luke tells him he's getting nervous. Scott says he's worried about Laura. Scott asks the guard to throw him out of the courthouse. Luke says he'll throw himself out.

Laura tells Rick she knows everything now and shows him the picture of the sketched woman. Rick asked how she got that and Laura tells him that she remembered her and had an artist friend sketch her for her so there's no use pretending anymore. Rick says he doesn't remember. When Laura tells him what she remembers Rick tells her he had an affair with her on her mother. Laura says it's not enough and she knows something more happened that night. Rick says he was a lying, cheating bastard but it doesn't make it better. Laura wants to know her name. He says she was a nurse at the hospital. Laura wanted to know why he invited her back to their house. He said he didn't invite her but she was psychotic and when he found out he broke it off. It's in the past and she almost destroyed them as a family and to leave it alone. He asks Laura to please don't let this woman do any more damage to them than she already has and leaves. Laura is shocked. Later Luke and Laura meet up with Leslie at Kelly's and Laura shows her the picture of the sketched woman. Leslie freaks and Luke says that's the woman she told them about isn't it. Leslie says yes and that it was one of Rick's lovers. She was different and strange and aggressive. She's the only one who ever came to the house and that Laura opened the door for her. Laura starts telling her about the woman and Rick in the attic. Leslie has an outburst and calls her a bitch and wonders out loud why it took so long for her to get rid of her. Leslie tells them all about how it started with phone calls, strange accents and different names. She didn't notice until she started showing up places like the beauty parlor, the dentist office waiting room, the car repair shop. She was being stalked. When she finally showed up at their house, she decided that she had to go. She said she cashed in bonds and paid her to leave town. She doesn't remember her name and says she blocked a lot of things out and wants it to stay that way. Luke and Laura show up at the hospital and Luke says he's going to do some checking on the missing woman and leaves. Then an orderly pushes a cart by the needles on it and Laura has another flashback of Rick in his scrubs kneeling down with a needle in his hand. Just then Rick comes up and startles her and asks if she's alright.

Liz tells Zander that she knows he's responsible for the cops all over Sonny's warehouse. She tells him that he's risking his life and asking for trouble. Zander says he can handle himself and that next time Jason will be in the hospital. He tells her to warn Jason to watch out. Roy suddenly appears and Liz leaves. Roy tells Zander that he sees his vendetta against Sonny is more involved than he let on. Zander said he can handle it. Roy said the cops got into the warehouse right on schedule and asks if there were any problems, all the while checking out the room and looking for something. After he leaves, Zander pulls out the bag holding the cash. He later shows up at Jason's penthouse (stupid guy) and breaks in. He starts rifling through his desk and finds an address book. After copying info down from it he takes his coat from his closet and leaves. Jason comes up the elevator so Zander hides but hears Liz with Jason say she needs some time alone with Jason.

Jason starts to leave his penthouse and runs into Taggert. Taggert tells him that if DiLucca suddenly disappears, he's coming after Jason for murder one. Jason talks to someone on the docks about the missing money and says someone needs to be hit hard and that it's someone they know. Roy appears and Jason confronts him. He tells him that Sonny will be back in 12 hrs and he has until then to turn things around. Roy tells him his threats are a waste. Liz appears and wants to talk to Jason and she tells him that it's really important. He's not real interested in talking to her at the moment. They go inside his penthouse and Liz tells him how much he means to her. She begs him to please don't hurt Zander. Jason says he's the enemy and Liz says she understands but Zander acts now and thinks later and that he's a kind and generous person. She says Zander is more than a friend and if he hurts him he's going to be hurting her. Then Jason's phone rings and Liz still begs for Zander's life. Jason tells her he has things to do and she has to go. Liz is surprised and leaves then Jason closes the door on her.

Roy won't fill Felicia in on the details of his meeting with the money man. Courtney interrupts and seats them at Kelly's. Roy looks at her and says he knows her. While he tries to figure it out, Felicia says she's Sonny sister. He says that's not it because he doesn't socialize with Sonny. Roy then tells Felicia that the meeting is on the docks but wont' tell her a time because he doesn't want her to go. It will be dangerous. Mac butts in and asks if there's a problem. Felicia covers and says it's over the fire at their house and her business. Mac starts in on the coincidences between Roy and the fires. He then wants to talk to Felicia alone. Roy leaves and Mac tells her she's getting in deep. She promises to call if she needs him.

Sonny walks into the room in his bathrobe and says he's giving up since Carly doesn't want him. He then says he's going for a swim and Carly is coming with him. He throws a bathing suit at her and says she's going to. He wants her to change right there in front of him instead of going upstairs. She says fine but enjoy it because it's the last time it will ever be his and he smiles. Later, they come back from swimming and Sonny wants Carly to dry him off. She does it really fast then he tells her to turn around and he starts to dry her off and kisses her neck. The tease back and forth and he starts kissing her neck again while she enjoys it. They start kissing hot and heavy and end up on the couch. She pushes him off and tells him she can't do this anymore. She admits she loves him but that he can't give her what she needs. Just say what she wants and he swears to God it's hers. She says she wants all of him but he can't give it. She says she's not blaming him it's just how he is. No matter how good his intentions are he shuts the door to her over and over. It was for a year last time and she begged and pleaded for him to let her in but he wouldn't but all Alexis' had to do was ask. He says he doesn't love Alexis he loves her and wants to be with her. She says responsibility comes first for him and that if Alexis was pregnant with his child, he would have left her. He says no but Carly doesn't believe him. He says he'd never leave her.

Roy is on the docks and checks his gun in his pants. Then the money man shows up and says finally they meet. Roy says it's about time. He asks who he is and what he wants.
