Maxie wonders when Liz plans on telling Nik and Lucky the truth, but she’s not sure what to do.  Liz feels Aiden is starting to look more and more like Lucky, which is why she got the second test done.  Talk turns to Jake and Liz blames herself for not hearing him go out the door.  Maxie reminds her it was an accident and not to blame herself.  Maxie says both Nik and Lucky deserve to know the truth, but Liz isn’t sure breaking Nik’s heart to repair Lucky’s is a good idea. Maxie reiterates they deserve the truth and says she’ll tell them, but Liz decides it should come from her.

Tracy tells Lucky that Luke needs him and Lucky finds it ironic that everyone seems to need him, but that he’s just trying to get through the day.  Tracy feels he’s the only one who can get through to Luke, but Lucky says he can’t drag his father to do the meeting. He can’t look at him without thinking of that night and there’s nothing he can do, because it’s up to Luke. 

Brenda and Suzanne are bonding over Lucian, and Brenda thanks her for bringing her son home to her.  After Suzanne leaves, Brenda wonders what Sonny’s issue is, and he reveals he's worried that the boy isn’t really hers and the documents could be faked. He wants to have a DNA test should be done.  Brenda doesn’t understand why he keeps telling her not to get too attached.  She feels Suzanne has no reason to lie now, but Sonny’s worried that Lucian will be hurt in the long run. Brenda swears the boy will never be taken away from her because he’s hers and she loves him. 

Brenda understands the need for the guards and feels it’s a trade off for having Sonny as Lucian’s father, because he loves his kids and is loyal to them.  Sonny mentions the problems Michael is having, but Brenda blames that on Carly and her selfish choices.  Sonny says he’ll always be a target and will do his best to protect the boy, but it might not be enough. 

Jason feels it’s a mistake for Michael to work for Johnny, because the business takes your heart and soul.  Michael wonders if Jason regrets joining the business. Jason explains that all he wanted was to get away from his family and Sonny had no expectations of him, but that in hindsight, he wouldn’t have taken the job.  Jason tells him he needs to figure out what will make him happy, but Michael feels having independence, power, and being in control is what he wants. 

Jason explains how bleak his life was after the accident. He pushed everyone away, including Alan and later realized Alan was only looking out for him.  He feels badly that he said horrible things to his father and never made it right, but that he learned from that.  He tells Michael that he won’t turn his back on him, no matter what decision he makes.  Michael says he heard him, but needs to make his own choices.
