Carly runs into the mediator in the courthouse hallway and apologizes for possibly giving off the wrong impression. She informs the mediator she is willing to compromise.  Jax walks up and points out that he should be a part of any conversation with the mediator, who assures him that no meeting is necessary, because she has all the information she needs.

Jax wonders why Carly won’t reconsider or compromise, but Carly’s not willing to be a visitor in her daughter’s life. She feels they never should have married.  Carly refuses to give up Josslyn, while Jax still feels she can’t keep her safe. 

Sonny stops Brenda on her way to the courthouse and asks what she’s planning on telling the judge.  Sonny says Jax knew that Carly was involved with him when they married and he can’t change the rules now.  Brenda feels he can since there’s a child involved, because it’s their job to protect the children.  Sonny says his men are on high alert, but Brenda is only now aware that she needs to put Alec’s needs first. She used to think she would lie to protect Sonny, but what if a child dies because she lied.  She feels Jax has the right to be worried, because Carly is unstable and needs to grow up.  Sonny defends Carly, saying she loves her kids.
