Alexis wonders what has changed in Jason’s life to allow him to have a baby with Sam.  Jason feels no one can keep their kid safe at all times.  Alexis points out that Jax is worried about Josslyn’s safety and it’s a high price to pay to have a baby in Jason's line of work. Sam comes downstairs and wonders if her mother is fine with her having a baby, just not with Jason. She goes on to remind her mother that giving up Jake didn’t keep him safe.  Alexis says it was a random accident and she’s worried about Sam, but will ultimately support whatever decision JaSam decide to make. She apologizes if she upset Sam in any way and leaves.

Jason offers to make a sandwich for Sam, but she wants to talk about their potential baby. She tells him that his feelings matter and it’s ok if he doesn’t want to have a baby.  Jason tells her he doesn’t want her to deny herself anything because of him, but Sam says it’s his decision too.  She apologizes for Alexis’ lecture, and doesn’t want him to feel any more pain. 

Jax informs Carly that Shawn is a threat to Josslyn and has the paperwork to prove it.  Carly says Shawn is protecting them from Franco.  After much back and forth, Shawn decides to quit, even though Carly doesn’t want him to be bullied by Jax.  Shawn assures her that Jax’s security team can protect her from Franco and leaves.

Carly’s angry, but Jax says Shawn was a violent man, who changes allegiance depending on who’s giving him the most money. Jax reassures her that he has his own security team in place.  Carly wants to know if Jax expects her to be a good mother and go along with his plans. She wonders how long it will be before she’ll be expected to stay away for good.

Lisa, thrilled that Robin went into the basement, quickly runs upstairs and locks her in.  Robin begs to be let out, as Lisa explains that Robin will die from exposure to gas.  Robin tells her Patrick will figure it out and hate her, but Lisa doesn’t care about Patrick. She feels he used her and threw her away. Lisa is confident that the breadcrumbs she’s left will point the finger at Patrick for Robin’s death. 

Brenda tells Sonny that she hired a nanny for Alec.  She’s upset that Alec asked for Carly when he woke up during the night.  Sonny doesn’t really know how to defend his actions anymore.  Brenda’s mad he didn’t give her a heads up when they took off after Suzanne and feels he lied to her. 

Brenda feels she’s making all the concessions in their marriage; she uprooted her life and moved into his life, with his things.  Sonny explains they’re merging their lives, but he can’t go off and live in Rome with her because he has responsibilities here.  She’s worried about Alec, but he assures her that Alec will come around.
