Jason tells Sam that he would have loved the baby because he was part of her.  Sam wonders what changed and why he’s telling her now and thinks he’s lying to her.  Jason thinks they’re worth fighting for and that’s what he went to the motel to tell her.

Sam asks if he was actually there to send John a message and explains that she knows he was badly beaten and that’s why he didn’t come back to take her to the hospital, because Jason made sure he couldn’t.  She wants to know if he sent someone or did it himself.  Jason admits he sent two goons because he wanted John out of the way.

Sam says John was so badly beaten that he couldn’t come back for her and the baby and that John was never the problem, Jason was.  She says he couldn’t love her baby, so instead of admitting it, he had John beaten to punish him.  Jason swears he tried to call the hit off, but it was too late.  Sam says it was too late for John and her baby. 

Kristina’s upset that the crew is still filming when her producer Trey shows up.  She tells him she doesn’t want to do the show anymore, but Trey tells her that she can’t back out now.  Family turmoil makes for good TV.  Kris wants the family to grieve the loss of Sam’s baby in private and thought the show would focus on Sonny.  Trey reminds her that her parents humiliated her and she needs to pay them back. 

Spinelli tells Olivia that he has an idea of Heather’s whereabouts the night she took the car, saying her easy pass was scanned on the highway.  Olivia doesn’t’ understand why Heather would be that far out, since the only thing around there is the Rendezvous Motel.  Spin thinks maybe Heather was meeting someone there for her own rendezvous and will continue to investigate. 

Steve catches Heather talking to herself and reminds her that she’s not supposed to be wandering around without a chaperone.  He tells her about Sam losing the baby but Heather tries to spin it that Sam didn’t want Franco’s baby anyway.  Steve says he has rounds, but wants his mother to sit and wait for him and he’ll take her home. 

Alexis wants Matt to be sure he’s doing the right thing, that once he’s signs the confession there’s no going back.  She gives him his phone and tells him to get his affairs in order while she talks to the DA.

Patrick gives Ewen a clean bill of health and discharges him into Liz’ company.  Patrick gets called down to the PCPD and is upset that Matt confessed.  Matt says he’s guilty, that he killed someone, and that he took an oath. Patrick reminds him that Lisa took an oath as well but Matt says he’s trying to do the right thing.  Patrick doesn’t want to lose his brother.  Alexis comes back with word from the DA.
