Sam gets a bunch of voice messages from Alexis, but wants to keep the baby news just between her and Jason a little longer.   Sam asks if he wants a boy or a girl. However, either one is fine with Jason.  Sam wants to go out to the balcony, but the door is stuck. She heads out to see Alexis, while Jason continues to work on the door. 

Carly takes Johnny home and notices the piano is missing.  Johnny says he got rid of it. It was a gift from Anthony and it had too many memories of Claudia.  Carly wonders if it’s smart to get rid of something that keeps him calm. However, Johnny doesn’t want to be calm.  Carly says she understands the anger, having been angry about being adopted and wreaking havoc on Bobbie’s life. 

Johnny says it’s not the same as having been lied to. Carly says Claudia loved him and not to let the anger fest until it destroys him and everyone around him.  Johnny thinks its what he deserves for loving Claudia, since she was responsible for Michael’s coma and prison term.  Carly says Claudia was a manipulative bitch, but she doesn’t want Johnny to ruin his life. 

Johnny thinks Carly feels responsible. She guiltily asks why he would think that. Johnny says she always blames herself when Sonny goes off the handle and feels she needs to clean up his messes. 

Matt’s tired of defending his relationship with Elizabeth, but Maxie feels Liz has turned him against her.  Matt says he doesn’t want to break up, but they can’t fight anymore. He can’t take her paranoia.  Maxie mentions Liz putting Matt’s job on the line when he helped her with Lucky’s drug case.  Matt says at least Liz listens to him and gives a damn. 

Maxie complains that Matt’s always at the hospital. He asks if she’s jealous of his patients now too.  Matt doesn’t like that she’s so insecure and can’t handle his friendship with Liz, who’s easy to have a conversation with.  Maxie tells him to admit that he has feelings for Liz, but Matt says he doesn’t have to compete for her attention.  Maxie says Liz makes her look like a shrew.  Matt says he’s tired of defending himself all the time, since she always thinks he’s lying to her. Maybe they shouldn’t be together.  Matt declares them over. 

Liz and Cam are eating at Kelly’s, but he’s not paying attention to her.  She gets angry and takes his game away. He snarks that daddy let him play with it.  Ewen shows up and the two discuss Cam’s bad attitude since Lucky left.  Ewen says Cam is testing her and she needs to set clear boundaries.

Liz talks about losing Jake, jumping back into work too soon, Cam being angry with her and how she doesn’t know how to help him.  Ewen assures her that things will get better and holds Liz’s hand.  Liz talks about needing Lucky and how she needs to look elsewhere for help now.  She knows her problems wouldn’t all disappear if Lucky came back and that she needs to move on.
