At Crimson, Sonny found Connie lying in a pool of blood on the floor. She whimpered that she knew he'd come. He told her that he wanted her to hold on.

Meanwhile, on the hospital roof, Franco remembered Kiki telling him that he wasn’t her father and then he climbed up on a ledge before sitting down on the steps. When Ellie stepped out on the roof for air, Franco told her it was a long way down. She yelled at him for scaring her and warned that he shouldn't be on the roof since it was dangerous and his loved ones might be concerned about him. He replied that he didn’t think he had any loved ones, but Ellie thought otherwise and showed him the flyer. Then, they both commiserated with each other over having lost the only person in their lives that they cared about in their lives. He then joked that they were kindred spirits and asked what she did to lose her boyfriend. She replied how she had lied and didn’t think she'd be forgiven for ruining six lives. Franco agreed that it must be a serious lie to ruin that many lives. He then advised her that she had one choice and told her that she should jump off the roof. Ellie asked how that would help and told Franco that his story didn’t impress her. She then added that he was free to mope around about all the wrong he'd done to others but she was going to fix her life. Then, Ellie went back inside leaving Franco still on the roof. Carly then overheard Ellie tell a nurse about Franco being on the roof. She joined him there and warned him that security was on the way. She then told him that she knew about Kiki and Silas.

AJ wouldn’t. Sonny then hit him with the gun and pressed it up against his head. Meanwhile, Dante arrived looking for AJ.

He added that he was a man of his word and came back for Lulu.

Diane then asked Michael to wait outside before questioning AJ further. Once they were alone, AJ confided in Diane that he remembered going to see Connie and that bits and pieces were coming back to him. He added that he was angry and wanted Connie to pay so he threatened her with the gun. Diane then asked if he pulled the trigger. He said he couldn’t remember and Diane thought that if he couldn’t remember pulling the trigger and the PCPD didn’t have a weapon, their case against him was presumptuous at best. She then told AJ that it was her job to find another reason why Connie wrote his initials in blood.

At the hospital, Dante told Lulu about Connie’s murder. She cried and remembered her first day on the job at Crimson.
