Lisa demands that Johnny help her out of her predicament, as he laughs at her for her request. He tells her she doesn’t make a very good “other” woman, but she gloats that she managed to get Patrick in bed. Lisa says Steven told her to bring in the patient as proof; otherwise she’ll be fired, but Johnny jokingly tells her that she can be his personal physician, something Lisa is not interested in. She’s tired of fending off Robin’s attacks and thinks that the way to Patrick’s heart is in the OR. She wants to be by Patrick’s side and won’t stop now. Lisa storms out. Johnny summons Ethan to his place.

Michael introduces Abby to his mother and Carly wonders who she is and how she and Michael met. Abby claims Michael is tutoring her, but Carly continues with her questions until Michael pulls her away and asks her not to embarrass him. He says Abby is a good friend who’s easy to talk to. Carly realizes that he clearly likes Abby, but she gives Abby an excuse and drags Michael away.

Jason wonders what Dante’s problem is and he questions how far Jason would go to protect Brenda. Dante wonders what would have happened if he’d told Brenda how he felt three years ago, but Jason asks what damage it would have caused. He explains how he and Liz hooked up when she was still married to Lucky, that it was wrong and even though Lucky has been gracious about it, he shouldn’t have acted on his feelings for Liz. Jason tells Dante not to tell Brenda the truth about his feelings and Dante says he made that choice three years ago and now has to live with it.

Jason and Dante go over the timeline again. They figure that the Balkan must realize that Brenda knows the truth about Alexander’s death and that he also likely must know about Dante’s involvement. Jason figures that the Balkan is after Dante as well. Steve shows up, annoyed to be helping the criminal element again, but lets them know that the lawyers for Alexander’s family have moved up the release of the body to tonight and tells them where.

Dante’s not happy to see Jason grab his gun, but Jason says if Jerry shows up, he needs something to defend himself. Dante tells him they’re only supposed to follow whoever claims the body and nothing more. Apparently Dante forgot what town he lives in.

Sonny wants to make up for lost time and Brenda admits she missed him all these years. They make love and it went on forever, even in fast forward mode. Afterwards, they wax poetic about their love and how they would have eventually found their way back to each other if it hadn’t happened this way. He starts talking about future plans, but she doesn’t want to hear it, because something usually goes wrong. Clearly, she is aware of what town she’s living in.

Luke’s bringing in high rollers and wants Ethan’s help in fleecing them out of their money so he can pay for the wedding Tracy wants. Lucky and Siobhan show up and Luke tries to talk him into some fleecing, but Lucky wonders if he’d be helping finance Luke’s next get away.

Brook asks if she can bring Nikolas, but Luke says Lucky might have a problem with Nik being there. Brook bristles about why that would be, since Nikolas was so generous as to let Siobhan stay at Windemere before. I’m thinking that doesn’t negate the whole "sleeping with my fiancée and getting her pregnant" thing, Brook.

Lisa gets to work and Robin questions whether she brought her patient in. Lisa claims the woman is afraid of authority figures and refused to come in.

Off the elevator comes a woman, thanking Lisa for getting the medication for her and Lisa realizes that Johnny came through for her.
