Brad realizes Sonny is there to make him pay. Sonny says Brad caused his family pain, but he'll spare his life if Brad pleads guilty to all charges. 

Brad's hearing begins with only Julian and Lucas in attendance. Judge Lassiter says Brad is charged with 1st degree kidnapping and 1st degree fraud and asks for his plea. Scotty is shocked when Brad pleads guilty to all charges. 

The judge asks if Brad is knowingly and voluntarily entering the plea. Brad says he's waving all rights, but wants the court to know that he wasn't the only one responsible. He says Nelle is lying and she was in on the plan from the beginning. 

Scotty warns Brad he could get up to 40 years in prison. Lucas stops Scott from badgering Brad. Brad tells Lucas he just wanted them to be happy, but Lucas doesn't believe he did it for him. Brad wonders if he'll ever see Lucas again. Lucas takes off his wedding ring. The two hug and Lucas leaves. 

Dr. Cross finishes questioning Alexis, then puts Neil in the hot seat. Neil chooses to corroborate Alexis' statement about their relationship being strictly professional. After conferring with the other board members, Dr. Cross tells them Neil can retain his license. 

Alone, Neil says he was surprised Alexis lied, but he went along with it. Alexis believes they now need to play by the rules, which means not seeing each other romantically for two years.
