Dex stops by with a raffle prize from Sonny, an espresso machine and a year's supply of coffee. Dex tells Michael that Sonny is digging into his past and Michael says he chose Dex because of his past, since it will put him in Sonny's good graces.

Olivia tells Brook Lynn about Sam and Dante's issues, and the two discuss some Sicilian voodoo concoction to get them closer. The two explain to Leo all about the ingredients and Leo later collects them.

Sonny wants Nina to be his date at the Quartermaine picnic. He explains it's for the hospital. Sonny says she has every right to be there and won't let anyone disrespect her. Nina is not interested and says everyone will do everything to keep Wiley from her, which will hurt.

Dex wants to apologize to Sonny, but he's not interested and warns Dex not to keep anything from him again. Dex promises not to let Sonny down.

Ava questions Spencer's angle, but he says he was on Trina's side the whole time. She accuses Spencer of hurting Trina and the two argue. Spencer wants honesty from Ava, who is about to tell him about Nikolas' tryst with Esme, but Nikolas arrives and stops her. Ava backs off and just tells Spencer to be careful while in prison

After Spencer leaves, Ava questions whether Nikolas plans to continue to threaten her. Nikolas says if Esme's body is found, Ava will have motive because of the tryst. They have to put on a show so others will think they're together and happy. Nikolas tells Ava to move back into Wyndemere today. Ava says she'll move back in so long as Nikolas leaves her alone while she's there. Nikolas wants them to go to the Quartermaine picnic to keep up appearances.
