She then told him about Dante being a father after all. He replied that he already knew and that it was a shock. Lulu then gave Sonny a “World's Best Grandpa” mug as a present and said she was happy for him and Olivia. He then asked her how she was doing with all this. She smiled and chatted up a storm about how natural of a father Dante was, but Sonny said that wasn’t what he asked. He wanted to know how she felt about Dante having a child that wasn’t hers. She replied that she found it awkward and had to accept that Ben was Dante's son and not hers. Sonny wanted her to learn to love Ben as if he was her own.

Connie was still alive when I left." Then, he realized that Ava killed Connie.
Carlos scares Ava at her place. She wants to know what went down while she was in New York. He tells her he made his move and was about to shoot 'him' when somebody hit him over the head. He ran off, leaving his gun behind. Ava looks uneasy and calls him unprofessional. He shrugs. He can take care of himself. She's only worried this can be traced back to her. He's sorry. She fixes him a drink and he asks if she still wants AJ dead. She denies that. She can't risk AJ remembering the night Connie died. She needs to come up with another alibi. She'll be in contact when the time is right. He goes and AJ arrives.
At Ryan's, Delia gasped. Nakamura wasn’t coming. Silas and Sam asked why. "He's dead," Delia replied. Then, Nathan walked in. He said that he was the one who called and introduced himself to Delia.

Nathan latched on to this but Silas accuses Ava of killing Nakamura and Nathan agreed to speak to her. They then talked about Nina and Silas told Nathan that he tried to see her for years but her parents wouldn't allow it. Nathan shot back that he'd have done anything to see his wife. Then, he left and Delia asked Silas if he knocked off Nakamura and Silas asked if Sam believed he was innocent him. She said that he did. Then, Silas said that he needed to find a way to see Nina right away.

Elizabeth then said that she trusted Robin…no questions asked and then they hugged. Then, Anna showed up to confront Robin. Elizabeth left them alone. Robin then told Anna that she was sorry. That she couldn't explain it all and asked her mother to believe in her. Anna then started to cry and decided to support her daughter's decision. They wept together and flashbacked to a time when they had found their way back to one another in the past. They'll do it again, Robin told Anna. "It's not goodbye, it's see ya later," Robin mused and hugged her mother.
Back at Kelly’s, Elizabeth walked in as Britt was asking Nikolas why Elizabeth was at Wyndemere. Nikolas replied that she was there to congratulate them on their engagement.
