Julian then threatened to turn him in, but “Luke” said that he could still hurt Julian’s family from jail because his “reach goes far” and doubted that Julian could rely on Anna to protect his family. “Luke” then ordered Julian back to work. He explained that the empire needed rebuilding and that he had a plan for how to do it.

Then, Ric showed up and Carly began listing his crimes. Franco shook his hand and then offered to beat him up, Carly was sure that he could ruin his own life.

Back at a table, Carly and Franco pondered what Sonny would do next.
Back at the bar, “Luke” chatted to Olivia. She mentioned breaking up with Sonny and he wanted all the details, which she gave. He told her that she could do a lot better than Sonny and asked her to go somewhere quiet so she could “undress her feelings” for him. She urged him to go home to his new bride.

Kiki went to see Michael at ELQ with his favorite takeout. She told him that Ava was on her way back from vacation and told him that Ava said that she wanted to be a better person when she got back. Kiki then told Michael that Ava slept with Sonny. He couldn’t believe Morgan didn’t tell him and she admitted that she asked him not to. He wished that he could have been there for his brother. He then told Kiki that he hated being protected, would rather deal with something in the moment than be blindsided later and that trust was the most important thing to him. He then asked where Sonny and Ava slept together, but she sidestepped the question and stopped him from getting back to work by taking her clothes off. They then made love.
Sonny got in Ava’s face in Puerto Rico and told her that he knew she killed Connie. She acted shocked, but he pulled out the recording. “You killed the woman I love!” he screamed. He then said that he was going to make sure she paid for it. She kept insisting that AJ did it, but Sonny said that he knew that she had framed him. He then pulled out a gun. She pleaded for him not to kill her and he wondered if Connie begged like that when Ava shot her in the gut. He then told Ava that he was just returning the favor. “You stole my past and future from me,” he screamed. She then told him there was something he didn’t know. She was pregnant.
At the Quartermaine mansion, Tracy told “Luke” that she knew about his honeymoon planning and that she couldn’t wait! He tried to deny it, but she told him that she dragged it out of Lulu “When do we leave?” she chirped. He told her tonight, and they would buy everything they needed when they got there.

Alexis was surprised to see Nikolas when she got home. Molly was off studying for finals and Alexis admitted that things were still a bit rocky since she lied about sleeping with TJ. Nikolas then told Alexis that he was there to talk about Elizabeth. He told Alexis that he asked her to stay at Wyndemere after she was shot because he wanted her close. Now he was taking it hard that she had moved out. He then told Alexis how he panicked and kissed her but that Elizabeth made it clear she was giving Ric a second chance. Alexis told him that she didn’t think Ric was heading up Julian’s organization because he swore on Molly’s life that he wasn’t. Nikolas was doubtful and she accused him of wanting it to be true so he could have Elizabeth back. He told Alexis that he loved Elizabeth so much that he even questioned his engagement to Britt, but that Ric worried him since he has always been up to no good.

A drunk Morgan was cut off at The Floating Rib and he got belligerent. Security tried to toss him out, but Olivia offered to take care of him. She took him to a booth and told him that she knew Ava cheated on him with Sonny. Morgan thought they could get back at them and planted a kiss on Olivia. She pushed him off, but he thought they could just say it was an accident so Sonny and Ava would know how it felt. He asked her to take him home with her, but she told him that revenge sex was off the table, at least with each other. She then added that she could see he was in a terrible place and that sinking to their level wasn’t the answer. He then apologized for trying to kiss her and she insisted on driving him home.
While still on Sonny’s island in Puerto Rico, Ava placed Sonny’s hand on her stomach and told him she was pregnant with his baby. He didn’t believe her. She offered to prove it and pulled a positive pregnancy test out of the trash. He accused her of planting it, but she said that she couldn’t have since she had no clue he was on his way there. She then told Sonny that they had made something beautiful out of something ugly. Sonny refused to believe the baby was his and she agreed saying it could be Morgan’s. She then reminded Sonny that she’d only been with Morgan and him since she’d been in town. Sonny then put his gun away and told her they were going to Port Charles to see a doctor. He then added that if she was lying, she was dead. If she was telling the truth, she would be dead in nine months.
Ric denied the charges against him as the cops searched his room at The Metro Court. Anna told him that there was documentation of a money trail that led to Ric, but he insisted it was fake and that Julian was lying. Meanwhile, Elizabeth struggled to get into a robe under the covers. The cops then found a gun, the same type that shot Lucas and killed his shooter. Ric swore it was a plant. As the cops dragged him off, he yelled to Elizabeth that he was being set up.
Julian told Alexis at her place that Ric was his boss. She didn’t believe it and demanded Julian tell her the truth. He swore on his kids’ lives that Ric was his boss. He told her that Ric approached him while he was still in the witness protection program and offered to fund Julian’s operation in order to bleed Sonny dry. Julian then added that he never planned on having a family so he had no idea how high the price would be. Alexis was beside herself about what she was going to tell Molly. Julian almost told Alexis the truth, but they were interrupted by someone at the door. It was Elizabeth, who told Alexis that someone was framing Ric. Alexis told Elizabeth that Julian explained everything to her and to call Diane, but Elizabeth busted in and demanded Julian tell her why he was setting up Ric. She then accused him of planting the gun and begged Alexis not to believe him over Ric. Alexis did and Elizabeth left upset. Julian apologized and begged Alexis to tell him they would be okay no matter what. She told him they would be. He then left to be with Lucas while she called Molly and told her to come home.
“Luke” visited the totally disoriented and drugged real Luke at Miscavige and told him it took a lot of planning to get here. He told the real Luke that he’d been watching him for months, years, familiarizing himself with all the details of Luke’s life. Then, he waited for just the right moment and got it when Luke landed here. He then rubbed it in how great Tracy was in bed when they reunited, and now they were married despite Ned’s efforts to keep them apart. “Luke” then added that he was only after Tracy for her money and ELQ but still took care of her in the sack. Restrained, the real Luke finally reacted and screamed for “Luke” to keep his filthy hands off Tracy. “Luke” laughed and continued to taunt the real Luke about Tracy’s voracious sex drive, and the real Luke spits in “Luke’s” face. “Luke” then told the real Luke that he was leaving town for a while, and passed along the info that the real Luke now had a grandson named Rocco. “Luke” then told the real Luke that when he got back from his trip he was going to take over Port Charles and obliterate Sonny. “Luke” even told the real Luke how he set up another guy to take the fall for everything he’d done with an iron-clad paper trail and even planted a weapon with prints. “Luke” then said goodbye to the real Luke, who asked him who he was. “Wouldn’t you like to know?” he replied tauntingly.
At the PCPD, Anna told Ric that the bullet that hit Lucas and the one that killed the hit man was a match for the gun in his room. Ric raged that it wasn’t his gun and that he never even touched it. She replied that his prints were all over it and placed him under arrest.
Elizabeth returned to Ric’s room at The Metro Court for her cell phone but the cops turned her away.
