She told him that she loved him as well, but admitted to still having feelings for Luke. Scott asked if she could ever get over those feelings and commit to him and Laura said that she needed time. After kissing her passionately, Scott declared that he would wait for her. Alone, Laura studied the ring and pondered her next course of action. Luke was thrilled to see Felicia and outlined his plans for an exciting future. Felicia thought it all sounded lovely, but she realized that his future didn't include her. They thanked each other for a memorable time and said a final goodbye. Felicia cried as she walked away and Luke contemplated his divorce papers from Laura. Mike wasn't pleased to see Janine after so many years and neither was she happy to see him. She told him that her daughter Courtney was fine even though he hadn't bothered to ask. Mike tried to explain why he had ran out on her, but Janine cut him off. She assured him that she would be leaving Port Charles as soon as she took care of some business. Roy confessed his desire to Melissa to make a difference in the world. He cited that he had done some good things in his past and he wanted to get back to being a person who he could be proud of.

    Preview:Mike is startled to see a face from his past. Recap:Carly declined Sonny's offer to move back into the penthouse in order to test the waters, but she assured him that she still wanted him to adopt Michael. When she told Mike about her decision, he chastised her for not jumping at the opportunity. Carly explained that she didn't want to live her life hoping for Sonny's approval and walking on egg shells around him. She declared that Sonny needed to accept her completely or they would never have a future together. While the celebration went on downstairs, Luke and Laura looked over mementos in the attic and recalled happier days together. Luke told Laura how proud he was and had always been of her strength and courage. He also let her know that he had received the final divorce papers and Laura was stunned to realize that it had all come to an end. Scott interrupted them, but left them alone to talk. After congratulating Nikolas and Lucky for their bravery, Luke returned to the club. Scott lingered at Laura's house and when she asked if he was okay, he blurted out a marriage proposal. Janine accepted Monica's check, but Skye ripped it out of her hands. The three women physically struggled over the check and Janine ultimately held on to it. Monica reminded her that she needed to leave town and the Quartermaines in order for the check to be cashed. When Monica left, Skye told Janine that she had a better offer. Janine coolly countered and said that if Skye paid her two hundred and fifty thousand dollars, she would do whatever was asked of her. Later, Janine went to Luke's Club and was shocked when she came face to face with Mike. Stefan asked Jax if he would return the Cassadine assets that he had bought to outwit Helena. Jax decided that rather than give them over, he would gamble with Stefan for them. They drew cards with the premise that whomever had the highest card would give the other the Cassadine properties. Though Jax drew a higher card, he didn't let Stefan see it and he surreptitiously switched it with a lower card, thus giving the assets back to the family. Alexis saw his maneuver and thanked him. Back in his hotel room, Jax was surprised to find Skye lounging on the sofa. Sonny crashed the welcome home party after learning that Alexis had been kidnapped. He was relieved to see that she was well and offered to take her home. Though Jax and Ned displayed open hostility toward Sonny, Kristina politely introduced herself and made friends. Alexis took Sonny up on his offer and they went back to the Penthouse. Once there, Sonny decided not to leave in order to keep Alexis safe.

    Preview:Helena is finally captured and jailed. Recap:Helena finally felt the full measure of her defeat when she was finally imprisoned for her wrongdoings. Lucky visited her and she initially believed that he had come to free her. She was vastly disappointed when Lucky reminded her that she no longer had any control over him. He gloated that he had finally won when she had lost everything. Stripped of her dignity and her jewels, Helena sat in the orange prison jumpsuit and cried. Laura celebrated a final release from her past by inviting Scott and Lucky to come home with her. She also invited Luke, but he declined the invitation. Before everyone arrived, Laura sat alone in her house and seemed at a loss as to what to do. At the same time, Luke returned to the club and was also at loose ends. Eventually, Scott and Lucky arrived with Lulu and the other children in tow. Laura mouthed a thank you to him for reuniting her family. However, she slipped away to the attic and looked over the mementos from her past. She turned when the door opened to find Luke standing there. Kristina threw a celebratory bash to welcome Alexis back home and to celebrate being free of Helena's evil influence. She forced Alexis to wear sexy clothes and loosen up a bit. Gia defied Taggert's edict that she stay away from Nikolas. In an extreme measure, she handcuffed herself to Nikolas and told her brother to get used to them being together permanently. Stefan hugged Nikolas and declared how proud he was of him. He told Nikolas that it was a new era for the Cassadines with Nikolas at the helm. Stefan took him to meet Kristina for the first time. At the Quartermaine mansion, Monica teamed up with Edward to get rid of Skye and Janine. Monica called Skye's credit card company and found out that Skye had charged a room at the PC Hotel.

    Preview:Luke says a final goodbye to Stavros. Recap:Felicia barged into Mac's office and told him that several of their friends were missing and she suspected Helena of capturing them in the lab. She told Mac that she knew how to get there, but he initially refused to let her go because of the great danger. Felicia reminded him that she would simply follow behind and he relented. Kristina opened Alexis' box of mementos and showed him the souvenirs from her childhood that Alexis had saved. Ned was stunned that Alexis had never shown him any of the things, but Kristina declared that the memories were probably too painful to share. Kristina cried as she wondered whether she would have a chance to make new memories with her sister. Ned held her and assured her that she would have that chance. Skye covered for Janine when Edward almost caught on to their scam. She assured her grandfather that Janine simply didn't want him to know how much he had hurt her. Skye motioned behind his back for Janine to fake a crying fit which she did. A remorseful Edward asked Skye to take care of Janine's broken heart. Meanwhile, Monica berated Alan for sticking up for Skye when it was clear that she had joined Janine in a con. Alan advised her to back off his daughter, but later warned Skye that toying with Edward could be very dangerous. A.J. stood up for Skye and told his father that she was simply trying to help him. A.J. and Skye bonded as they realized that they truly trusted and supported each other. Skye received a shock from Janine when the woman revealed that she was running the con in order to care for her daughter. Roy and Jax couldn't make their way out of the maze and they grew increasingly frustrated by Helena's taunts. Two guards found them and while Jax and Roy were fighting, Helena slipped away. Alexis and Bobbie stopped her before she could escape and they all managed to find their way out of the maze. Laura valiantly tried to pull Luke out of the hole and just as her strength was waning, Scott came along and pulled Luke to safety. Rather than follow Laura and Scott out of the maze, Luke decided to go after Stavros. Stefan diligently worked to crack the code of the maze and Lucky watched his back while he worked. As they waited to see if Stefan's password would work, Lucky and Stefan apologized to each other for past grievances. The computer alerted them that "failsafe" was going to be instituted in fifteen minutes. Guessing that meant that the maze was going to shut down, they hurried away. Gia and Nikolas were trapped in the bower by one of the henchmen, but Stavros arrived and called him off. Nikolas asked what his father planned to do with them and Stavros told them both to leave and reach safety. At the door, Nikolas turned and asked Stavros to come with them. Though visibly moved, Stavros insisted that his place was there. He told Nikolas what a good man he was and bade him to have a good life. Outside of the maze, everyone embraced and rejoiced that they were all safe. The crowning moment came when Mac and Taggert placed Helena under arrest. The only worry left was Luke who had yet to emerge from the maze. Stavros and Luke met again when Luke found him lamenting his losses in the bower. Stavros attempted to stab him, but Luke tore off a metal post from the bed and went after his enemy. They ended up back over the bottomless pit and Luke pushed Stavros in. Stavros managed to grab hold of the ledge and Luke loomed over him. He gloated that his face was once again the last vision Stavros had before death. Laughing maniacally, Stavros let go and fell backwards into the hole. Luke got out of the maze just as the last door closed and he ran straight into Laura's waiting arms. He held her and told her that all the monsters were gone and the game was finally over.

    Preview:Edward has help to recover from shock.

    Recap:Helena refused to believe that her command over Lucky was at an end, and she continued to dangle the Ice Princess in front of him. Nikolas urged Lucky to fight against Helena, but Lucky seemed to be moving closer to submitting to Helena's will. All of a sudden, he shouted to Nikolas, and Nikolas overpowered one of the guards. Nikolas and Lucky both rushed at Helena and declared that she was finished. Stavros and Helena reminded everyone that there were still guards all over the maze. Unbeknownst to them, Roy, Scott, and Jax had disarmed the guards and stolen their uniforms. Stavros stated that Nikolas would remain unharmed, as would Laura and Gia. Nikolas told his father that if he really wanted to prove his love, he would let everyone go. Stavros consented to release everyone except Luke and Stefan. He told Nikolas that the two men hated him and would seek to destroy him, which he could never allow. Scott, Jax, and Roy came in when Helena called for her guards, and the trio helped to get rid of the remaining henchmen. Stavros hit Nikolas to escape from the room, and Luke freed himself to go after him. Scott tried to get Laura to leave with him, but she refused to leave without Luke and ran to find him. Meanwhile, Jax and Alexis escorted Helena out while Stefan and Lucky stayed behind to dismantle the maze's computer. Luke came face-to-face with Stavros, who taunted him that he still hadn't won. When they heard Laura call out to Luke, Stavros lunged forward to release a lever that sent Luke hurtling through the floor. He managed to hold onto the ledge, and Stavros tossed a coin in the pit to demonstrate that it was bottomless. He knew that in his weakened state, Luke would never be able to hold on, and he wished him a happy trip to hell. Laura found Luke and reached out her hand to him just as she had in his dreams many months before. Sonny found a note from Carly telling him that she and Michael were returning to Port Charles without him. Sonny halted the plane from leaving and joined Carly and Michael on board. He sent Michael and Letitia out for ice-cream at the airport so that he and Carly could talk. Carly told him that she couldn't continue to live in limbo about their relationship, and Sonny said to prevent that, she and Michael should move back into the Penthouse. Carly was thrilled that they were reuniting, but when she went to hug Sonny, he pulled away. Realizing that Sonny had still put up a wall between them, Carly refused his offer. Janine caused havoc for the Quartermaines when she arrived unannounced for breakfast. Edward choked when Janine called him sweetcheeks, but Skye covered and said Janine called everyone that. However, she dragged Janine out to the patio and berated the woman for almost ruining their plans. She gloated when Janine let her guard slip and revealed that she was conning Edward. She told Skye that she had never slept with Edward. Alan figured out that Edward had a liaison with Janine, and he advised his father not to hurt Lila with the truth. At the same time, Monica asked A.J. why he felt that he could trust Skye. A.J. said that Skye was the only person in the family who didn't automatically think the worst of him. Edward overheard Skye ask for a reason why she shouldn't tell her grandfather the truth.

    Preview:Helena brings Lucky in to end the games.

    Recap:Luke burst into the bower that Stavros had recreated for Laura, and he taunted Stavros about his inability to hold onto her. When the two started to physically fight, Luke yelled for Laura to run. Because Luke was so weak from his illness, he wasn't able to overpower Stavros, so Laura refused to leave him. She begged Stavros to spare Luke's life, but his fury knew no bounds. He raged that Laura chose Luke over him, and he declared that it was all coming to an end immediately. Helena had Bobbie brought to her in order to coerce Bobbie into telling her where Luke was. Bobbie scornfully replied that even if she knew where Luke was, she would never tell. She also warned Helena not to underestimate the Spencers. Stavros stormed into the room and told his mother to finish her plans for everyone. Nikolas gave Gia instructions on how to get out of the maze, but she was reluctant to leave him. He told her that she needed to bring back help, and he reiterated his love for her. Though apprehensive, Gia started making her way through the maze. She was nearly home free when Helena's henchmen grabbed her. Stefan railed against his inability to find an escape from the room, but Alexis bolstered his spirits by telling him what a great person he was. She vowed that when they were away from Helena, she intended to rebuild her life and add more joy to it. Just then, they heard Nikolas outside of the room demanding that his uncle and aunt be released. He managed to convince the guard to open the door, and Stefan was ready with a blow that knocked the guard unconscious. Nikolas bade Stefan and Alexis to make their escape, while he searched for Laura. He found Laura and Luke together, but before they could get away, Helena's men captured them. The men also found Alexis and Stefan and everyone was brought to the lab. Kristina found Jax in Alexis' apartment and demanded that he tell her where her sister was. Jax admitted that Helena had taken Alexis, and Kristina couldn't stop her tears. She implored Jax to find both her sister and brother, and he promised to keep her family safe. Roy and Scott were on the roof of the hospital trying to figure out how to get into the lab. Scott could barely concentrate since he was focusing on his anger at Luke for endangering Laura in the first place. Roy demanded that Scott stop berating his friend and make himself useful. Roy suddenly got an idea on how they could get to the lab, and he called Jax for help. Meanwhile, Lucky was surprised by a vision of Elizabeth. His memories of her and their love for each other focused his thoughts, and he realized that he could beat Helena as long as he held onto love. In the lab, Helena told everyone gathered that it was time for the end game to begin. She said that she had a very special guest who would put an end to everything. Her men opened the door to reveal Lucky. Holding the Ice Princess in front of him, Helena commanded Lucky to fulfill the destiny she had planned for him so many years before. When she asked if he understood what he had to do, Lucky smiled and said he understood completely. Helena was stunned when Lucky firmly and coldly refused to do her bidding.

    Recap:Laura went along with Stavros' romantic fantasy in the hopes of saving her family and friends. Stavros said that he would compromise by sparing Bobbie and Alexis, but that was the best he could do. That wasn't enough for Laura, especially when Stavros said that he wouldn't spare Lucky. Laura reached out to slap him, and Stavros knocked her to the ground. He faulted Luke for making Laura unable to love him, and he determined to kill Luke immediately. Just then, Luke barged in the room prepared to rescue Laura. Gia pressed Nikolas to go along with his father's demands in order for them to remain together, but Nikolas knew that he would be unable to trick Stavros twice. Instead, he was focused on escaping the locked chamber. Using his status as a Cassadine prince, he convinced one of the guards to release them from the cell. Scott and Roy tried to enlist Lucky in their quest to find the Cassadine lab. Lucky refused because he feared that Helena's brainwashing would overpower him, and he would hurt someone. Roy and Scott promised that they would find his parents, and Lucky was devastated that he couldn't help. When they left, Lucky re-read the letter that Elizabeth left for him and was saddened that he had lost her. Suddenly, a vision of Liz appeared to him and told him that he would never lose her, and that they would always love each other. Alexis and Bobbie bickered over Sonny and Carly, while Stefan looked for an escape route from the room. He told them that they needed to put aside their petty differences and get out of there. Carly discovered that Sonny had not signed the divorce papers, and she asked him why. Sonny said that he wasn't ready to give up on them yet, but he didn't know how to trust her. Carly said that he had no reason to trust her, just like she really didn't trust him. She pointed out her fears that he had betrayed her with Angel and Alexis, and she declared that if she trusted him, the women wouldn't have mattered. She stressed that she needed him to accept her as his wife without conditions and, if he couldn't, they didn't stand a chance. When Michael came in after having a bad nightmare, Sonny comforted him lovingly. Carly told Sonny that she was going to let him adopt Michael regardless of what happened between them. Sonny promised that he would try to trust Carly and said he was ready to give their marriage another shot.

    Recap:Sonny asked Carly to stay with him, but she said that she wanted to make a fresh start in her life. Sonny told her that he loved her, but when she asked if he could forgive her, he said he didn't know. Carly said that wasn't good enough, and that it was time for them to let each other go. She tearfully signed the divorce papers, and then handed them to Sonny. Torn by the fact that Carly was being reasonable and honest for the first time in a long time, Sonny hesitated to sign. Nikolas and Laura were stunned when they came face to face with Stavros. Laura was momentarily speechless, but Nikolas immediately demanded to see Gia. Stavros was hurt that those were Nikolas' first words to his father. He promised Nikolas that Gia was well, and that he had no plans to hurt anyone. Stavros told them that he wanted them all to be a family, and Nikolas surprised Laura by saying that he might be willing to try. As proof of his goodwill, Stavros brought Gia out, and she ran into Nikolas' arms. Nikolas convinced Stavros that he had long dreamt of their reunion, and he hugged him. When Nikolas pulled away, he had captured Stavros' gun, and he tried to overpower him. Stavros wrestled the gun away, and then sent Nikolas and Gia into a guarded room, while he took Laura to the bower he had created for her. He told Laura that he had recreated their room on the island in order to make her love him again. Alexis and Stefan argued about their escape since she refused to leave, and he refused to go with her. She insisted that they stay together to fight Helena. Just as they both planned to leave, Helena came in, leading Bobbie behind her. She told them that the fun was just beginning. When the guards took Alexis to get food, Bobbie and Stefan realized that they needed to work together in order to defeat Helena. Jax thwarted Luke's plans to save Bobbie by telling him that he planned to use Helena's lust for him against her. Luke agreed to stay in the hospital, but begged Jax to rescue his sister. Jax sent a note to Helena asking her to meet him and waited impatiently for her to come. Unfortunately, once Helena was lured to his trap, Skye interrupted them and ruined everything. Furious, Jax told Skye to stay away from him. Roy and Melissa comforted Luke as he fretted over Bobbie. Roy promised Luke that he would take care of everyone. Luke reminisced about he and Bobbie's childhood, saying that it had always been his duty to take care of his sister. When Melissa went back to check on Luke, she discovered that he was gone.

Roy was concerned when he discovered that Bobbie was missing as well. Meanwhile, Alexis convinced Stefan that together they were Nikolas' only hope. She knew that they could defeat Helena and Stavros. Bolstered by her confidence, Stefan agreed to attempt an escape. Lucky pleaded with Laura to let him end the feud between the Cassadines and the Spencers. Nikolas arrived upon the scene, and he helped Laura convince Lucky to remain in hiding and let them face Stavros and Helena without him. They worried that Lucky would fall prey to Helena's brainwashing. Nikolas and Laura bravely walked into the maze inside the cave, but stopped in their tracks when Stavros appeared.

    Preview:Stavros imagines a fantastic evening with Laura.

    Recap:Stavros led a blindfolded Gia into a room that he had romantically decorated for Laura. He asked Gia if such a room would make a woman fall in love with him. Taking pity on him, Gia told him that love wasn't about pretty things or places. She described her relationship with Nikolas, telling Stavros that the reason she loved his son was because of the goodness inside of him. Stavros thanked Gia for her time, and then had his men send her back. Once alone, he imagined Laura coming to him and remarking on the change in his behavior. Nikolas visited Luke in the hospital to ask for his help with Helena, but Laura thought it was too much for Luke. Even though the antidote to the poison was working, Luke was still very weak. Still, he told Nikolas that he no longer hated him, and assured him that he was nothing like Stavros. Luke looked at the map he had drawn of the lab, but could make no sense of it. Laura sat by his bedside and promised him that together they would fight for their entire family. Ned watched Kristina sing along to one of his songs, and then soon joined in. The duo collapsed in laughter on the couch, and Ned continued to be amazed by her spirit. Alexis came in looking for Jax, and Ned immediately turned serious. He offered to look for Jax and suggested that the sisters spend some time together. Kristina attempted to play matchmaker by noting that Ned and Alexis still clearly had feelings for each other. Alexis gently told her sister that she and Ned were finished, and Kristina should leave well enough alone. Jax tried to rig the stopped elevator to move, giving Skye little of his attention as she went on and on about her schemes against Edward. She told him that she had spied Edward at a hotel with Janine, and now had the ammunition to bring him down. Jax told her that he had met Janine in the airport, but he still had no interest in helping. When he was accidentally shocked by the elevator wires, Skye unbuttoned his shirt and attempted CPR. He opened his eyes as the elevator moved, and she fell on top of him. Ned was standing on the other side of the opened doors and told Jax this wasn't the time for him to be playing around. They raced back to L & B to find that Alexis had left Kristina with a bodyguard, and had gone home. Edward sought A.J.'s help in dealing with Skye and Janine. He confessed that after a drunken night in Atlantic City, he woke up to find a scantily clad Janine in his hotel room, and he had no memory of what had happened. A.J. told Edward he would help him for more ELQ shares. Edward reluctantly handed them over, and then asked what the plan was. Before A.J. could spin a tale, Skye came in, and A.J. handed her the shares. He confided that Edward had tried to blackmail him, but had ended up giving his least favorite grandchildren more stock. Johnny stood guard outside of Alexis' door, while she went inside to take a nap. Before she could get settled, she heard a loud thump outside. Investigating the noise, she was shocked to find Helena on her doorstep.

    Preview:Edward is surprised by an amorous visitor.

    Recap:Edward pretended that he didn't know who Janine was, even when she threw her arms around him and called him "sweet cheeks." A.J. and Skye relished the moment when Lila came in and asked who Janine was. Skye saved the day by declaring that Janine was an old college mate of hers who was in town for a special reunion. When Lila left, Edward soon followed and suggested that Janine do the same. Skye assured a disappointed Janine that she would make sure Edward "remembered" his association with her. Later, Skye told Edward that the only thing she wanted from him was his assured cooperation in her dealings with the family. Sonny went to Alexis for advice about his marriage to Carly. He confessed that after the passionate interlude they had shared at the lake house, he was doubting whether he should really go through with the divorce. Alexis said that because she was his lawyer and didn't particularly like Carly, she couldn't be objective. She also almost slipped and spilled the fact that she was attracted to Sonny. After listening to the various options Alexis listed, Sonny decided to talk to Carly about the situation. Carly was stunned to find Lucien Cane in her living room. He told her that Letitia had allowed him to wait for her, and he hoped she wouldn't mind. She said that she had come home intent on taking Michael to the park, so it wasn't a good time for a visit. He got her attention by telling her about the son he had lost due to his wife's family influencing him negatively. Carly confided in him about her betrayal of Sonny, and she was surprised when he understood and accepted her motives. The two bonded over their similarities. Stavros arranged to take her and Michael to a video arcade, which he had rented for their exclusive use. Carly was pleased to see how well the two got along, and Stavros experienced a moment of genuine pleasure as well. Just then, Sonny came in, having been alerted by Letitia as to their whereabouts. Nikolas struggled to convince Lucky that he had always been on his side, in spite of how things appeared. Fortunately, Laura came in and added her words to his. Nikolas begged Lucky to forgive him and, eventually, Lucky did. He was still afraid that he would inadvertently hurt his family, so he wanted them to stay away from him. Laura and Nikolas promised him that the love they all had for each other was stronger than Helena's hatred, and they were convinced they could beat her. Jax had a hard time believing that Stavros Cassadine had returned from the grave, but Gia ultimately managed to convince him that she was telling the truth. He called Alexis to warn her that Stavros was on the loose, but she didn't answer the phone. When he tried to leave the station, Taggert threw him in a jail cell and reminded him that he was being held as a conspirator to a crime. Gia distracted the guard and stole his keys, but when she unlocked Jax from the cell, Taggert stopped them from fleeing.

    Preview:Edward is surprised by an amorous visitor.

    Recap:Melissa took Roy back to her apartment after Mac finally let them go. She was relieved to be home and most especially happy to have a moment alone with Roy. She took a shower to revive herself, and was surprised when Roy joined her. The two made love for the first time in years. Afterwards, they snuggled on the couch and pledged to let the past stay buried and focus on the future. Jax saw Angel off, and was startled when a strange woman struck up a conversation with him. She asked him if he knew where the Quartermaine mansion was, and he asked if she was a good friend of the family. He tested her by making up a fake story about the Quartermaines, and she completely fell for it. He offered to drive her to the mansion, but before he could, Detective Andy dragged him off to the PCPD to question him about Angel. At the same time, Mac and Taggert interrupted a passionate interlude between Sonny and Carly. Though they had started kissing to fool the police, the kiss quickly flared out of control, and they had moved to the couch by the time the cops came in. Mac left to question Jax at the station, while Taggert grilled Sonny and Carly. He demanded to know where Angel was, but Carly and Sonny played dumb. Carly insisted that Angel had allowed them to use her lake house for a second honeymoon. Though Taggert didn't buy the story, he had no proof to the contrary. When he left, Carly wanted to resume the intimacy with Sonny, but he stopped her. She reminded him that he had admitted in the heat of passion to still being in love with her, but he declared that it didn't change things between them. Fed up with trying to get through to him, Carly stormed out. Gia was disappointed when Nikolas had to leave to try and defeat his grandmother. She begged him to let her help him, but he insisted that she stay on the yacht where it was safe. She couldn't stop her tears when he left, and she reached in the drawer for a tissue. She was stunned to find a picture of Stavros holding a baby Nikolas, because Stavros looked exactly like Lucien Cane! She called out to warn Nikolas, but he had already left. Gia rushed to the police station and asked Mac to find Lucien and arrest him. After all the false alarms she had pulled, Mac gave her no attention. Jax, however, was all ears when she confessed to him that Lucien was actually Stavros Cassadine. Nikolas went to Laura's house and ran straight into a hostile Lucky. Believing that Nikolas was working with Helena, Lucky yelled at his brother for being a traitor. Nikolas asked Lucky to give him a minute to explain everything, and he would see that they had always been on the same side. Helena found Stavros brooding as he studied pictures of an infant Nikolas. He lamented the fact that his son hated him and wanted to destroy him. Helena gleefully stated that it would be easy enough to program Nikolas to love his father again. For once, Stavros was horrified by Helena's intentions, and he commanded her to leave his son alone. He told Helena that she knew nothing of love or human emotions. He left and let himself into Carly's house, where he was waiting when she came home. Over breakfast at the mansion, Edward gloated to Skye that she had no proof to back up her blackmail claim. Skye was happily surprised when a female visitor named Janine was announced. A.J. watched Skye greet the woman, and he wondered how they knew each other. Before Skye could say anything, Edward came in, and Janine threw her arms around him and called him "sweet cheeks."

    Preview:Jax says a sad goodbye to Angel.

    Recap:Carly was incredulous to hear that Angel was the one who had killed Sorel. She was all for letting Angel turn herself in to the cops, but Jax and Sonny were determined to help Angel skip town. Eventually, Carly realized that if Angel left with charges pending against her, she would never be able to return. They devised a plan in which Sonny loudly proclaimed to Carly that he was leaving her for Angel. They took the fight out to the porch, where Mac and Taggert had a clear view of them. Jax threw "Carly" over his shoulder to take her away from the lake house, while "Angel" and Sonny kissed inside. In reality, Carly had donned a brown wig, and Angel a blonde one. Jax took Angel to the airport, where he had his jet fly her to an island in Greece. The friends said a sad goodbye and wished each other well. Back at the lake house, Taggert and Mac waited for a warrant before going in to arrest Angel. Zander burst into the Quartermaine mansion demanding to know why A.J. had lied to Emily. Skye stopped him from throttling A.J. and asked what happened. Zander said that A.J. had made Emily believe that he had held her brother down and poured vodka in his mouth to get him to sign Michael over to Sonny. Though Skye was startled by the lie, she told Zander that she wouldn't tell him the truth unless he helped her get Michael back. Zander refused to betray Sonny, who was the only person other than Emily to believe in him. Before he left, he told A.J. that someday Emily would learn the truth, and she would know her brother for the liar he was. A.J. thanked Skye for trying to help him, and for always taking his side. Skye reiterated her promise to aid him, but she warned that she didn't think they should discount Zander's anger. Laura had a nightmare that Stavros was standing over her, saying that no one could protect her from him. Scott woke her up and, in her flustered state, she told Scott that it would be better if they stopped seeing each other. When Scott refused to walk away from her, she finally confessed the truth about Stavros being alive. Scott called his parents and asked them to take Serena out of town, and then told Laura that they were in the fight together. Gia and Nikolas made love in a hot tub beneath the stars, but their interlude was disturbed by Nikolas' worry that he was being selfish in keeping her with him. Gia stated that she wasn't going to let him fight alone because she loved him too much to lose him. He promised her that he would keep her safe and would never leave her again.

    Preview:Gia and Nikolas finally reunite for good.

    Recap:Skye continued to implore Jax to help her scheme against Sonny, but he remained firm that she was pursuing the wrong course of action. She assured him that she could make it worth his while, as she planned to secure more ELQ stock shares from Edward. Jax shrewdly surmised that Skye was blackmailing Edward and asked what she had on her grandfather. Skye refused to divulge her secret, but she promised that it would make them both even richer than before. In the abandoned mansion, the restless suspects berated Mac when he said that he was waiting for evidence from the lab that would prove who the murderer was. They all separately railed at him for detaining them for so long. Most angry was Angel, who stormed out of the mansion once she realized that she wasn't being charged. Sonny arranged for Johnny to take Alexis and Zander home. Once outside, Zander admitted to Alexis that Sonny had done everything that A.J. had accused him of. Alexis worried that Zander was becoming as coldhearted a liar as Sonny, and Zander confessed that Sonny's lure was hard to resist. Alan, A.J., and Monica headed home, though Mac advised Monica not to leave town since she was one of his prime suspects. They were all startled to find Jax and Skye together, though Jax ran out as soon as he found out that Angel had been questioned. A.J. warned Skye that Jax wasn't to be trusted because he was only out to help himself. Skye declared that so was she, and that perhaps Jax had finally met his match. Alan sat Monica down and told her that he loved her, and that if she had been the one to kill Sorel, he would do everything in his power to protect her. Monica said that she hadn't turned off Sorel's respirators, but she had seen Alan turn off his medicine and hadn't done anything to stop him. She felt his actions were justified since she knew that he was acting out of love for Emily. She fell into his arms and declared that she loved him more than ever. Before leaving the mansion, Bobbie received a phone call telling her that Luke's condition was worsening. Roy and Melissa went with her to the hospital, and Bobbie rushed in to see Luke. He was still lucid, but clearly very ill. Bobbie confessed to him that she had played a part in Sorel's death by not trying to save his life. She worried that Luke's illness was a form of retribution for her inaction. Luke assured her that she was a good nurse and a good person, and he advised her to forget all about Sorel. Bobbie gave him the antidote that Tony had made, and she hoped that it would make Luke well again. Roy fretted outside Luke's room, as he feared that his friend was dying. Melissa followed him up to the roof and listened as he explained how he hated feeling helpless when someone he loved was in trouble. Melissa realized that Roy had been in Sorel's room in order to protect her in case she had killed him. They held on to each other tightly for comfort. Nikolas was happy to find Gia waiting for him on the yacht. He haltingly told her about his "reunion" with Stavros. Unbeknownst to them both, Stavros had followed Nikolas and was listening in from outside. Nikolas confided that as a child, Helena had made him believe that his father was a hero, and he had longed for him to return. But as he grew older, he learned of all the despicable things Stavros had done, and he was glad that he was dead. Now that he knew his father was alive, he was horrified that he would become just like him. Gia took him in her arms and reminded him that he was a good person and the best of the Cassadines. She told him that she could never love him if he was an evil man. Finally, the two fell into each other's arms and made love for the first time in months. Meanwhile, Stavros left the yacht and wandered the docks like a lost man. He broke down and cried when he realized the depth of Nikolas' hatred for him. Sonny headed for the lake house and surprised Angel. He told her that he knew she had killed her father and offered her protection. Angel confessed that she hadn't gone to the hospital with the intention of killing Sorel, she just wanted to stop him from hurting people. The next thing she knew, she had unplugged the respirator and was watching him die. Jax burst into the house and demanded that Sonny leave. He told Angel that he had known for some time that she had killed Sorel, and he intended to help her. Unfortunately, Carly had followed Sonny and heard the truth about Angel. She berated the woman for causing so much trouble and tried to physically attack her. Jax held her back just as a car drove up to the house. Though none of them realized it, Mac and Felicia had deduced that Angel was the most likely killer, and they were on their way to get her.

    Recap:Carly diverted attention away from Sonny by admitting that she had pulled the plug on Sorel. She also crushed A.J. when she revealed Sonny's intention to adopt Michael. Mike stirred up more commotion when he admitted to smothering Sorel. Melissa went one step further by saying that she had rigged Sorel's pulse monitor. Mac thanked his guests for their honesty, but he said that the real killer had turned Sorel's respirator off, and then back on again. Stefan propositioned an incredulous Stavros about joining forces and overtaking Helena. Nikolas convinced Laura that he had to help her acquire the antidote for Luke's progressing disease. However, once they arrived at General Hospital, they found the entrance to Helena's lab sealed off. Laura discovered that Nikolas spoke his true feelings of hatred to his seemingly dead father, forcing her to admit that Stavros is alive. Nikolas worried that his cover had been blown. Ned and Kristina spent an evening at Jake's, but their pleasant time was interrupted when Edward arrived to recruit Ned for his crusade against Skye. Ned refused, after Edward declined to admit what Skye had on him. Once Edward left, Kristina convinced Ned to sing for the bar. Later, Ned and Kristina returned to the gatehouse to find Jax and Skye getting closer, in spite of their underlying distrust of the other.

    Preview:Mac gathers all the suspects in the Sorel murder.

    Recap:Mac and Felicia used an abandoned mansion as the holding place for the suspects in the Sorel murder case. Mac sent out several officers to round up the suspects (usual and otherwise) and bring them to the mansion. He told Felicia that he was relying on her incredible instincts to help ferret out the real killer. Roy and Melissa were in the midst of pouring out their hearts to each other, and were on the brink of making love, when a police officer interrupted them and instructed them both to come with him. Zander was on the phone with Emily, telling her that he was on his way to the airport. He planned to spend some much needed time with her, and he was excited to leave. On his way out, an officer told him that he wasn't going anywhere except for where the commissioner wanted him to be. Carly hesitated to sign the divorce papers and asked Bobbie what she should do. Bobbie told her that the most important person in the situation was Michael, and she advised Carly to do what was best for her son. She also didn't think that Sonny was capable of making Carly happy, and she worried that the lack of trust between the two would ultimately destroy them. Heeding her mother's advice, Carly sat back down at the desk and prepared to sign. Just then, someone knocked at the door, and a police officer came in to escort both Bobbie and Carly to the mansion. After Angel and Jax made a champagne toast to better days in the future, Angel asked him to make sure that he kept himself open to the future. She was worried that his overwhelming grief over Brenda and Chloe was going to keep him closed to love. Jax admitted that he was having trouble letting go of Brenda, and he wasn't even sure that he even wanted to. He did promise to keep his mind and heart as open as he could. Upon leaving his room, Angel was cornered by a cop and led to the mansion. The Quartermaines impatiently waited for Skye to reveal what she knew about Edward's whereabouts on the night of Sorel's murder. Skye was ready to deliver the coup de grace when Lila came in and said that she wanted to hear the tale as well. Skye's conscience got the better of her since she didn't want to hurt Lila, and she shrugged it off as her attempt to make Edward squirm. Before she could be chastised, Big Alice informed them that the police wanted them for questioning. Left alone, Skye and Edward verbally sparred over her scheming ways. Edward got in the last word when he told Skye that if she continued to try and tear their family apart, she would end up alone and unwanted, just as she'd began in life. Hurt but trying not to show it, Skye stalked away. She went to the gatehouse to look for incriminating information against Ned, but she was attacked by Jax. She got the upper hand by flipping him to the floor, and then demanded to know what he was doing there. Alexis woke from a passionate dream about Sonny to find him standing next to her bed. As she tried to cover her pique, her inner voice berated her for dreaming about Sonny in the first place. She was clearly nervous, which Sonny sensed and questioned her about. She finally admitted that she had a bad dream, but refused to discuss it. She was grateful when the doorbell rang and interrupted them, but her gratitude lessened when she and a disheveled Sonny opened the door to the police. At the mansion, Mac stood in the center of the room, and once everyone had arrived, he told them that they were all there because one of them killed Sorel, and he was determined to find out who did it. When Sonny tried to leave, A.J. stopped him and told everyone present what Sonny had done to him to make him sign the custody papers. He asked Zander to corroborate his story, but Zander refused to implicate Sonny. Mac halted the sideshow by unveiling a portrait of Sorel. He said that no one was leaving until the case of the unsolved murder was solved.

    Preview:Alexis has a passionate dream about Sonny.

    Recap:Melissa took Roy back to her apartment, and she tried to soothe him as he worried about Luke. He was determined that there had to be something more he could do to help his friend, and was ready to leave and confront Helena. Melissa urged him not to see Helena while he was feeling so hot-headed. She confessed that she would be devastated if something happened to him because she loved him so much. Her words of love stopped Roy in his tracks, and he reciprocated by telling her how much he loved her. He thanked her for not only forgiving him for the past, but giving him hope for the future. Skye went to Jax and used her seductive wiles to try and get him to side with her against Sonny. Though Jax was amused by her tactics, he told her in no uncertain terms that he wouldn't work with her because he believed she was selfish and destructive. Angry, Skye stormed out, saying he would regret not aligning himself with her. Back at the Quartermaine mansion, Skye walked in just as it seemed that A.J. was going to tell the family what Sonny had done to him. She stopped him in time, reminding him later that he could put their family in danger if they tried to go after Sonny in retaliation. She convinced him that together they would think of a better plan. When Edward and Alan came back in, Edward accused the two of being schemers. Skye "innocently" said that since Edward wasn't playing nicely as he'd promised, she thought it was time to let the family know where he really was on the night of Sorel's murder. Meanwhile, Felicia and Mac worked together on a plan to root out Sorel's killer. They went over the list of suspects and their various motives, but there was still no definitive evidence to work with. Felicia suggested that they gather all of the suspects together in one room and see what they would reveal under group pressure. She theorized that the innocent people would loudly proclaim their innocence while the guilty remained quiet. Mac thought that it was a brilliant plan, and he expressed how happy he was to be working with her again. Angel was Jax's second visitor of the evening, and she admitted that she had overheard some of his conversation with Skye. She asked what Skye had against Sonny, and Jax questioned whether she was concerned because she still had feelings for the mobster. Angel declared that as much as she was over her old feelings for Jax, she was also over Sonny. Jax thought that was worthy of a champagne toast, and he congratulated Angel for always landing on her feet. Carly tried to contain her anger over hearing that Sonny was sleeping in Alexis' Penthouse. She took Sonny aside and told him that she had been thinking of his intention to adopt Michael, and she agreed that it was a good idea, but she refused to go through with it unless Sonny called off their divorce. She believed it was more harmful to Michael to have divorced parents than a united family. Sonny made her understand that their marriage would never work, and that the tension between them would ultimately do more damage to her son. Carly asked Alexis for new divorce papers, then warned Sonny that sleeping with his attorney was a bad idea. Back at her cottage, she confessed to a visiting Bobbie that she no longer knew what she wanted from Sonny. Though Bobbie advised her not to act in anger, Carly was poised to sign the divorce papers. Sonny apologized to Alexis for Carly's behavior, and Alexis told him an apology wasn't necessary. She did think it was silly of Carly to be jealous of their relationship when nothing was going on between them. Sonny disagreed and said that they did have an abnormal client/attorney relationship. Rather than get too deep into that, Alexis gave Sonny a pillow and blanket, and she wished him a happy night on the couch. While Sonny stared out of the window and whispered Carly's name, Alexis was upstairs in the grip of a wild dream. She dreamt that Sonny pulled her into a passionate kiss, which quickly flared out of control. When she woke up with a start, she was shocked to see Sonny standing next to her bed with his shirt unbuttoned the way it was in her dream.

    Preview:Lucky is comforted by a vision of Liz.

    Recap:Sonny surprised Carly when he presented her with the papers that A.J. had signed, relinquishing his rights to Michael. Carly thanked him and hugged him gratefully. Sonny further stunned her by saying that he never wanted Michael to know a minute of uncertainty about who his family was. To that end, Sonny told Carly that he wanted to adopt Michael. Carly received his announcement with mixed emotions. She was pleased that Sonny was so dedicated to her son, but she felt that their impending divorce would confuse the issue for Michael. Sonny accused her of selfishly trying to stay married to him, but she felt that he was the one behaving selfishly. She told him that she needed time to think about it, and Sonny agreed. Lucky made his way to the Cassadine yacht to look for Elizabeth. Gia was the only person he found, and she was surprised that he didn't remember anything that had happened with Liz. Lucky confessed that Helena had gotten to him again, but he knew that he was getting better at fighting her. He told Gia that even with that positive sign, he was certain that Helena would win, and that none of them would ever be safe or happy. Gia offered him words of reassurance by telling him that love never died, and if he believed hard enough, he would be reunited with Liz. Comforted, Lucky had a vision of Liz telling him that she still loved him, and that they would be together. Skye was relieved when A.J. returned to the Quartermaine mansion, but a sullen A.J. expressed no joy at seeing her. She told him about the bartender telling the family that A.J. was on a bender, and A.J. reacted with surprise. He told Skye that Sonny had held him captive in a meat locker, and had browbeat him into giving up his custodial rights. A.J. had held out for a long time, until Sonny had brought in bottles of vodka that were chased by a phony news headline of A.J.'s death in a drunk driving accident. He had reluctantly signed the papers after that, but he assured Skye that he was going after Sonny with guns blazing. Sure that it was the fastest way to ruin, Skye advised caution. She eventually convinced A.J. that Michael was safe for the moment, and she told him that they should bide their time to get revenge. Though Stefan was initially confident that he would win against Stavros, his brother soon gained the upper hand by talking about Nikolas. Stavros cheerfully told Stefan that Nikolas had killed Liz, and he was now just like his father. Devastated, Stefan's guard slipped, and Stavros overpowered him. Stavros let Helena out of the chamber and scoffed when she demanded that he kill Stefan. Stavros claimed to have a better plan, and he tied Stefan to a chair. Nikolas found Laura at the hospital and told her that Liz was safely hidden away, but Gia now knew about their scheme. Laura had news of her own, and she told him that she had aided Stefan in his escape from jail. Nikolas was dismayed to hear that, since he believed that Stefan was safe in jail. He told Laura that he was determined to use Helena's newfound trust in him to their advantage. Laura was going to warn him about Stavros' return when Helena showed up. She took Nikolas away and told him that she had something special to show him. Scott stayed with Luke, while Laura spoke with Nikolas, and he tried to make sense of Luke's ramblings. Luke kept going on about the lab and the maze, and he whispered that the keys were in Laura's mind. When Scott relayed the message to Laura, she had no idea what it meant, but she told Scott that time was running out for them to solve the puzzle. Meanwhile, Helena took Nikolas to the lab and told him that she had something to show him that would make him very happy. Inside, Stavros waited impatiently to be reunited with his son.

    Preview:Laura manages to get Luke back to GH.

    Recap:Bobbie was both stunned and excited that Jax had stolen a vial of poison from Helena. However, before Jax would hand it over, he wanted to know exactly what it was. After some hedging, Bobbie finally told him that she believed it was the same poison that Helena had given Luke, and Tony possibly had a cure for it. Jax handed it over after exacting a promise that Bobbie would keep him informed from then on. Laura called Bobbie in a panic when Luke collapsed and wouldn't regain consciousness. She cradled his face and told him that she loved him and begged him not to leave her. At GH, Scott overheard Bobbie and Tony talking about Luke, and he followed them to the warehouse. Putting aside his personal feelings, Scott helped Tony get Luke to the hospital. Laura thanked Scott for being so understanding, and she sought comfort in his arms. Their close moment was interrupted when Luke woke up and asked for Laura. Scott watched from the doorway as Laura assured Luke that she wouldn't leave him. Kristina was dismayed when Ned insisted that his relationship with Alexis was over. He was so intractable that he didn't want to have Alexis' name mentioned, until Kristina reminded him that Alexis was her sister, and she loved her. Kristina confided that as happy as she was to have discovered her family, she had never felt more alone. Everyone constantly kept her in the dark, and she was starting to feel like a useless child. Ned comforted her, and the two brightened with laughter when Kristina rearranged his house. Stefan dismissed Helena's minions and demanded that she tell him the secrets of the lab, as well as how she had managed to turn Nikolas against everyone. Helena tried to manipulate him by praising his Cassadine instincts and admitting that she felt proud of him for the first time. An amused Stefan said that her praise was too late since he had long since resolved himself to the fact that she never had, and never would, love him. He locked her in one of the lab's chambers until he was ready to decide her fate. Taggert continued to question Stavros as they waited for Alexis to show up and identify him. Stavros insisted that he was innocent of Stefan's actions and suggested that the police turn their attention to catching the real criminal. When Taggert stepped out, Stavros overpowered Detective Andy and escaped Wyndemere. Alexis arrived, and she berated Taggert for letting such a dangerous man go free. She couldn't tell him Stavros' true identity, but begged him to track the man down. Jax came in and backed up Alexis when Taggert questioned her involvement in Stefan's escape. Alexis thanked him for covering for her and asked him to protect Kristina. She didn't tell him that Stavros was alive, but she did say that a new and deadly Cassadine was on the scene. Nikolas and Gia moved closer toward reconciliation, even though she was still angry with him for deceiving her. Gia asked what his plans for the Cassadines were, and he admitted that he didn't have a total plan worked out, but he figured he would think of something. Displeased, Gia intimated that she would help him out in her own way. Nikolas realized that she planned to talk to Lucien Cane about his dealings with the Cassadines, and he warned her not to pursue that course of action. Though Gia told him she would stay away from Lucien, she privately resolved to see him anyway. Before Nikolas could leave the yacht, Gia gave him a passionate kiss for good luck and made him promise to be careful. Stavros arrived in Helena's lab to find an unsurprised Stefan. He warned his little brother that his reign of triumph had come to an end, but Stefan nonchalantly declared that the fun was just beginning. He rolled up his sleeves and prepared for battle.

    Preview:Kristina tries to make peace between Ned and Alexis.

    Recap:Luke remained fixated on his relationship with Laura, and he asked her if they could work on finding their way back to each other. Laura told him that she would always love him, but that they had both moved on with their lives, and it needed to stay that way. Luke reminisced about movies they had watched in the past, and he remembered his love for bad horror films. He said he had seen a particularly scary film recently that took place in a modern-day lab. Suspecting that he was referring to Helena's lab, Laura asked him if he could draw it. He attempted to draw her a map, but it was a mess that she couldn't understand. Scott confronted Bobbie at GH and asked if she had seen Laura. Bobbie confessed that Laura was with Luke, which completely dismayed Scott. He started insulting Luke and his crazy behavior, until Bobbie reminded him that he was talking about her very ill brother. Bobbie softened when Scott admitted that he felt like his relationship with Laura was in jeopardy. She pointed out that Luke and Laura's love for each other was untouchable, and Scott shouldn't try to compete with that. She suggested that he find a way to be with Laura on new terms. Ned was stunned to hear that Kristina and Alexis were sisters. Jax and Kristina tried to cover by saying that Kristina was referring to sisterhood in the global sense, but an angry Ned would not be fooled. Alexis walked in just as he was demanding the truth. Initially, she was angry at Jax for telling Ned, until Kristina admitted that she had accidentally let the truth out. Ned expressed his hurt that Alexis seemed to turn to everyone but him for comfort. His hurt turned to anger when she revealed that Sonny knew the truth. Ned told Alexis that he had tried to be there for her in whatever way she needed, but it was never enough. A pained Alexis admitted that she never felt she could confide in him about things she didn't think he would understand. A call from the police interrupted them, and Alexis apologized and ran out. Kristina came back in and asked Ned what had happened. He calmly declared that he and Alexis were through, and he was finally over her. Jax went to the hospital and sought out Bobbie. He gave her the vial of biotoxin he had found in Helena's hotel room, and he asked her if she could have it medically analyzed. Stefan managed to subdue Stavros and tied him to a chair. Helena came in, and she was shocked to see that Stefan had the upper hand over her beloved Stavros. She attempted to persuade Stefan to let Stavros go by promising him whatever he wanted. Stefan didn't believe a word of what she said, but he demanded that she take him to the lab where she had "unfrozen" Stavros. She complied, and Stefan was impressed with her underground chamber. Meanwhile, Taggert and Andy arrived at Wyndemere looking for Stefan, and they heard someone banging from inside a chest. They opened it to reveal a bound Stavros. As they untied him, he told them that he was an old business associate of Stefan's. Taggert questioned him about his role in Stefan's escape, but Stavros professed his innocence. Stavros' cool demeanor slipped when Taggert called Alexis and asked her to come to Wyndemere to identify Stefan's "friend."

    Preview:The Cassadine brothers reunite at last.

    Recap:Sonny and Jax squared off over Alexis' protection of Stefan. Sonny declared that if Jax was truly Alexis' friend, he would accept that Alexis believed Stefan was innocent and he would help them. Jax demanded that Sonny stay out of their business, but Sonny refused to leave. Instead, Jax left after questioning Alexis' judgment. Alexis thanked Sonny for his support, but lamented the loss of Jax's trust. Sonny asked her what was going on, and all she could tell him was that the past had come back to haunt them and it was very, very dangerous. Without hesitation, Sonny told Alexis that he was putting guards on her, and he asked if she wanted him to do the same for Stefan. Alexis didn't think anyone could protect Stefan, but she was grateful for Sonny's concern and friendship. Laura was shocked to see Luke at the hospital and dismayed to realize that he was still stuck in the past. She called Bobbie to let her know where Luke was, and she learned that the antidote hadn't worked. Laura told Luke that they needed to find Tony so that he could try and help, but Luke was adamant that he and Laura were too late for their date to see anyone. When they were going to leave, Laura spied Helena in the corridor. She told Luke that they had to leave immediately, and Luke vaguely remembered what a threat Helena was. Laura donned doctor's scrubs and pushed Luke out of the room in a wheelchair. Unfortunately, Helena spotted them, but they managed to run away. They escaped to a warehouse that was full of department store clothes. Luke thought they were back at Wyndham's, and he drew Laura into a dance. He sickened and collapsed, and Laura promised to take care of him. As she caressed his face, he noticed that she wasn't wearing her wedding ring. Laura gently told him that they weren't divorced, and Luke asked how that could be when he still loved her. Ned and Kristina bantered about his days as Eddie Maine the rock star. Kristina found it hard to believe that Ned the suit once transformed into Ned in leather pants. As they shared a light moment, it was ruined when Skye barged into the gatehouse. She asked Ned if he had seen A.J., and managed to insult Kristina in the process. Kristina held her own by pointing out that just because Skye was miserable, she didn't have to make everyone else that way. When Skye mentioned that Edward was helping her find A.J., Ned reeled since Edward had been scheming to boot Skye out of their lives. He took Skye back to the house and asked Edward what Skye was blackmailing him with. Edward refused to tell Ned the truth; he simply maintained that he wanted the family back together. Meanwhile, Jax rushed into the gatehouse and told Kristina that they were leaving town. He didn't feel that he could keep her safe with Stefan on the loose and Alexis trusting all the wrong people. Kristina assured him that Stefan would never hurt her and, furthermore, she had promised Alexis that they would always be together. Ned walked in just as Kristina was reminding Jax that she had just found her sister and didn't plan on leaving her now. Ned was stunned to finally learn of Alexis and Kristina's true relationship. Gia resisted forgiving Nikolas, because she felt so betrayed. Nikolas got through to her by reminding her how much he loved his brother and how unsafe things were for Lucky. While Gia never came out and said that she forgave him, she did allow him to kiss her. However, she also reminded him that she hadn't exactly been lonely without him, but she did admit that she wasn't seeing Lucien Cane anymore. He asked why, and she revealed that she had seen Lucien cozying up to Helena. Nikolas was immediately alarmed, and he demanded to know the whole story. Gia confessed that she had told Lucien about what she believed Nikolas was doing to Elizabeth. Nikolas was furious because he felt she had placed herself in danger, but she reminded him that had he told her the truth, she wouldn't have acted so rashly. She commanded him to turn the yacht around so that he could continue his plans, but warned him that she was going to be a part of them from now on. Stefan headed for Wyndemere and waited for Stavros to arrive. Sure enough, Stavros came in through the secret entrance, and the two brothers came face to face for the first time in years. Stefan welcomed his brother back from the grave, and Stavros pointed out the irony of his younger brother being older than him. They circled each other like wolves as they battled for control. Using painful memories of the past and hurtful words, they struck at each other. Stefan struck the most lethal blow by reminding his brother that not only had he stolen and loved his wife, but he had raised his son. Stavros approached Stefan with a deadly look in his eyes, and an unafraid Stefan urged him to come closer and see all that he had learned about self-defense.

    Preview:"Lucien" comes between Sonny and Carly.

    Recap:Carly came home to find Lucien Cane waiting for her in the living room. Letitia had taken Michael to the park and told Lucien he could wait for Carly inside. Though surprised to see him, Carly was pleased when he told her that he had thought of a way to help her take back Deception from Laura. In the midst of their discussion, Sonny showed up to discuss the terms of their divorce, and he was annoyed to find Lucien there. His annoyance turned to anger when Lucien refused to leave and told Sonny he didn't know how to leave a beautiful woman like Carly. Carly was secretly thrilled that Sonny was witnessing another man being attentive to her, but she asked Lucien to leave her alone with her husband. Sonny warned her not to trust Lucien and told her to stay away from him. Carly reminded him that he had no right to tell her who to do business with. She hinted that her relationship with Lucien even went beyond business, and though Sonny pretended not to care, he was clearly bothered. Elizabeth berated Gia for being too selfish and childish to see what a supreme sacrifice it had been for Nikolas to break up with her. She told Gia that it nearly broke Nikolas' heart to have to lie to her, and she suggested that Gia either forgive Nikolas or leave him alone. Before she left, Liz wrote a letter to Lucky explaining what had happened, and she asked Nikolas to give it to him once it was safe. Nikolas got Liz safely away and returned to ask Gia if she had decided to forgive him. Torn by her love for him and her hurt, Gia couldn't answer. Lucky held the vial of biotoxin and threatened Helena with it even as she tried to exert control over him with the Ice Princess. Lucky knocked it out of her hand, and Helena made a mad dash for it. As she got it, she regained the upper hand with Lucky and demanded that he tell her if he had seen Luke. Lucky said he had seen his father, but he didn't know where he was now. He said that Luke was acting crazy and he couldn't get any information out of him. Stavros came in as Helena was questioning Lucky, and he was stunned to see that Lucky was still alive. Helena dismissed Lucky and told Stavros to leave him alone because he would prove useful to them in the future. Stefan grabbed his chest and said he was having heart pains, and Laura called the prison guards to come and help him. The guards called the hospital, and Melissa told them to bring him in a squad car because they were depleted of ambulances. A listening Roy warned Melissa that helping Laura and Stefan could be dangerous since she was already a murder suspect. Melissa believed that she needed to help, and she promised Roy that she would be careful. Back at the jail, Alexis and Jax showed up, and Alexis demanded that the police take her brother to the hospital. Jax was convinced that Stefan was faking it, and he decided to go with them all to GH. Once there, Melissa took Stefan into a curtained room, and she and Laura stood guard as he changed into hospital scrubs. Melissa and Roy created a diversion, while Stefan escaped the room. Mac came in with other officers and demanded to see Stefan. Melissa pretended innocence when Mac discovered that Stefan was gone. He questioned both Laura and Melissa, but they both maintained their ignorance of Stefan's whereabouts. Meanwhile, Stefan was on his way out of the hospital when Jax nabbed him. Alexis begged him to let Stefan go, and a newly arrived Sonny added his command to hers. Jax thought that Alexis' judgment was clouded where her brother was concerned, but he let Stefan go. Bobbie tried to nurse Luke through his illness, but he remained mired in the past. Luke feared that he was becoming like their alcoholic father, but Bobbie assured him that he was a good person. While Bobbie went out to get food, Luke left the cabin. He headed to GH, where he surprised Laura by asking her if she had forgotten about their date.

    Preview:Bobbie tries to comfort an ailing Luke.

    Recap:Bobbie asked Tony to come to the cabin with the antidote to Helena's poison. Though Tony brought it, he wasn't certain that it would work without running blood tests on Luke. Bobbie begged Tony to administer the drug anyway, but Luke refused to let a "stranger" touch him. Tony left the drug with Bobbie, and she gave it to Luke. Unfortunately, it seemed to have little effect, as Luke was still lost in the past. Bobbie cried and cradled her sick brother as she hoped for a cure. Sonny went to Carly's cottage, after Carly called him to tell him that Michael had suffered a bad nightmare. Sonny comforted Michael and assured the boy that he would always be there for him. Michael expressed his love for Sonny and happily went back upstairs with Letitia. Sonny confirmed to Carly that he would always love Michael, but that didn't change the fact that their marriage was over. Carly maintained that Sonny still loved her and had never been able to say that he didn't. He said that he never told her that because he knew it wouldn't change her actions. Carly sidled closer to him and said that she knew he didn't really want to leave her. She kissed him, and he responded for a minute before pulling away. Though he left the cottage, he was clearly torn. Skye managed to subdue Edward by revealing that she had seen him in Atlantic City on the night that Sorel was murdered. She threatened to tell the family all the details of his wild night unless he backed off of her and A.J. Alan came in, and Skye kept quiet when Edward said a pleasant good night to her. Skye told Alan that she was having a hard time dealing with A.J. falling off the wagon. She knew how important it was for him to get Michael back, and she couldn't believe that he would jeopardize his chances. Alan said that he, too, sympathized with A.J.'s situation because it reminded him of all the years he had lost with Skye. The two shared a warm moment, and both pledged to do the best they could for A.J. when he returned. Meanwhile, Zander visited A.J. in the meat locker to try and convince him to sign the custody papers. A.J. was dismayed that Zander wasn't there to help him escape, and warned him that it would be a mistake to go against him. Zander maintained that his loyalty was to Sonny, and the only way he could help A.J. was by seeing that he signed the papers. When A.J. refused, Zander left and Sonny's men came in. They gave A.J. another false newspaper with headlines of A.J.'s death, and they left him bottles of vodka with Sonny's compliments. In the hallway, Sonny thanked Zander for trying and told him that violence was not an everyday part of his business. He said that his main priority was keeping Michael away from a father who could potentially hurt him. Zander understood those motives, as that was the very reason he had left his own home. Gia's shock over Elizabeth's sudden return to life turned to anger when Nikolas explained that his actions over the past months had been a ruse to save Lucky. She was furious that he trusted Liz with his plan and not the woman he claimed to love. Nikolas yelled that he did love her, and he had been trying to keep her safe from his family's machinations. In the midst of their argument, Mac showed up in response to Gia's 911 call. Gia made herself look deliberately foolish by telling Mac that she had called because she was angry at Nikolas. Mac left after warning her that the police department was not available for her every emotional whim. Gia returned to berating Nikolas, but Liz reminded them that she needed to get out of town while Helena still believed she was dead. Nikolas demanded that Gia stay on the yacht until he got back so that they could work out their differences. Helena tried to regain control of Lucky's mind, and he pretended to fall back under her spell. However, he suddenly grabbed her and revealed the vial of biotoxin that he had. He demanded that she give him the antidote for Luke or else he would kill them both. Helena appeared to comply and reached for the antidote, but pulled out the Ice Princess instead. Lucky was horrified to see that she had managed to recover it, and he was powerless to resist her when she held the diamond in front of him.

    Preview:Helena is stunned to see Lucky alive.

    Recap:Lucky managed to escape from his restraints and saved himself from drowning. He got to the yacht in time to see Nikolas crying over Elizabeth's seemingly lifeless body. Lucky collapsed at her feet and broke down in tears because he wasn't able to save her. Lucky couldn't believe that Nikolas would kill her, until Nikolas told him that Helena had commanded him to do it. Lucky assumed that Helena had programmed Nikolas, and he was devastated. He left the yacht determined to seek revenge. Finding the police useless in helping her, Gia raced to the yacht to try and save Liz herself. When she got there, she saw Nikolas near a still unconscious Liz, and she assumed the worst. Calling Nikolas a murderer, she hit him with her cell phone and tried to call the police. He got the phone away from her and tried to explain what had happened, but Gia was frantically trying to get away from him. Suddenly, Liz woke up and called out to him. At Wyndemere, Alexis fooled Helena by pretending not to have heard Stavros. She subtly looked around for a trace of him as she ostensibly searched for the Cassadine papers that Stefan had sent her to retrieve. Helena declared that she had already taken the papers and hid them, and she told Alexis that Stefan's doom was sealed. Alexis bolted as fast as she could for the police station, where she told Stefan all that she had heard. She urged her brother not to try and escape because she was worried about what Stavros would do to him if he found him. Stefan assured her that he would be fine as long as she, Kristina, and Nikolas were safe. Zander was visited by Quinn, the young nurse who had helped him at GH. She told him that she had accidentally given the police information about him, and his involvement in Sorel's murder. She warned him that they might come to arrest him soon. He thanked her for the warning and for being such a good friend, and he told her that he would take care of his problems with the police. Skye returned to the Quartermaine mansion and demanded to know where A.J. was. She told them that she hadn't heard from him in days and that it worried her since they had been in constant communication while she was gone. No one knew where A.J. was, but Edward assumed he was drunk in a bar some place. Skye was just as certain that Sonny had done something to A.J., and she left to confront him. Meanwhile, the newest Quartermaine servant, Big Alice, opened the door to a bartender who wanted to return A.J.'s wallet. The bartender told them that he had prevented a drunken A.J. from driving home. Alan and Ned went after Skye to tell her the news. Mike went to see Sonny to make certain that he was well, but Sonny suspected that Mike had something else on his mind. When talk turned to Sorel's murder, Mike seemed uncomfortable and said he didn't want to talk about that night. Sonny asked him what he had done so that it could be fixed. Mike insisted that he hadn't done anything, and he asked Sonny if he had something to hide. Before they could continue, Skye burst in and asked Sonny where A.J. was. Sonny calmly replied that he hadn't seen A.J. for a long time. Alan and Ned came in and told her about A.J.'s bender. A disappointed Skye left with them, but not before warning Sonny that she wasn't finished with him. Later, the bartender who had visited the Quartermaines came into Sonny's office. Sonny paid him off and thanked him for a job well done. At the mansion, Alan and Monica pledged to help A.J. recover from his relapse, but Skye didn't seem convinced that A.J. had really fallen off the wagon. When everyone went to bed, Edward stayed downstairs with Skye and asked her why she had really returned. Skye whispered that he had better stay on her good side or she would tell everyone where he was the night that Sorel was murdered. A.J. meanwhile, managed to get himself off of the meat hook and even pried open the locker door. Unfortunately, one of Sonny's large henchmen was stationed outside. He handed A.J. the custody papers and said that once he signed them, he could leave. When A.J. refused, the man wheeled in a meal and told A.J. to get comfortable until he came to his senses. Lucky found Helena at Wyndemere and confronted her about murdering Chloe, Liz, and Luke. Helena was stunned to see that he was alive, but quickly recovered and said that she hadn't killed anyone. Lucky retorted that even though she was never the one to commit the crimes, she caused them. He let it slip that she hadn't been successful with Luke, and Helena tried to pry information out of him. She commanded him to tell her where Luke was, but Lucky remained strong. Moving closer to her, he asserted that he was never going to let her hurt anyone again.

    Preview:Nikolas wait for Liz to wake up.

    Recap:Lucky threatened Nikolas and Elizabeth's plans by showing up at the yacht, demanding that Liz leave with him. He told her that Nikolas and Helena had poisoned her food, and he knocked it all off of the table. She held a glass of the poisoned wine in her hand, but Lucky snatched that away as well. Nikolas strong-armed Lucky and knocked him unconscious when he refused to leave. Helena's men took Lucky away, but Nikolas bade them not to hurt Lucky and to put him some place safe. He asked Liz if she understood why he'd had to hit Lucky, and she assured him that she did. While Nikolas poured more wine and added in the sleeping drug, Liz told Helena that her life was with Nikolas, and she was looking forward to their future together. Nikolas gave her a glass of wine, and raised his own in a toast. He reminded her of the way they used to toast with brownies with Emily and Lucky, when everyone would finish the other person's brownie. So saying, he took Liz's glass and gave her his, and he started to drink. Helena panicked, thinking he was drinking the poison, but when Liz swayed on her feet, it was clear that she had taken the drug. Nikolas sat her down and cried when she accused him of killing her. He stroked her hair and apologized until her eyes finally closed. Helena checked her pulse and told Nikolas that it was done. She congratulated him and told him that he was truly a Cassadine prince. She wanted her henchmen to dispose of Liz's body, but Nikolas insisted on being alone with Liz and handling it himself. Once Helena was gone, Nikolas begged Liz to wake up, and was terrified when she didn't. Jax visited Stefan in jail because he wanted to find out why his nemesis was so willing to have him protect Alexis and Kristina. Stefan wouldn't divulge his reasons, but he declared that if Jax broke him out of prison, he would reveal everything. Jax refused to help Stefan escape, and said he would protect the Cassadine sisters in his own way. Gia managed to convince Stavros that even though she had told Lucky about Nikolas' scheme, Lucky didn't plan on doing anything about it. When he tried to turn her attention to more amorous matters, she allowed him to briefly kiss her, then she pulled away. She said that as much as she wanted to spend time with him, she was late for a poetry reading. She slipped away and rushed to the police station, where she told a detective that Elizabeth was in danger. Meanwhile, Stavros came across Helena's henchmen leaving Lucky on the docks, and ordered them to leave. Stavros woke Lucky up, and then told him that his days of pestering the Cassadines were over. He brought a bound and gagged Lucky to his feet, and then pitched him in the river. Scott and Alexis pressed Laura to reveal what was going on between her and Stefan, as well as what she was trying to hide. Laura refused to tell either one of them anything, and said that she didn't appreciate being interrogated in her own home. Scott took Laura aside and told her that in order for their relationship to work, she had to trust him. Laura insisted that she did trust Scott, but she couldn't involve him in her problems. Hurt and frustrated, Scott stormed off. Laura then had to deal with Alexis, who demanded that Laura tell her why she and Stefan were suddenly so close. Under pressure, Laura finally told Alexis that she and Stefan believed that Stavros was alive. Though she told Alexis about the disks of instructions for reviving the dead, Alexis didn't believe the tale. She felt that Helena was playing with their minds, so she decided to put extra security on Stefan. Laura raced to the jail to tell Stefan what Alexis had planned. He wasn't thrilled to learn that she had spilled the truth about Stavros. Laura told him that she had to find a way to break him out of jail immediately before Alexis' extra guards arrived. Determined to confront Helena about her deviousness, Alexis headed to Wyndemere. She paused outside of the door when she heard Helena boasting about Nikolas' return as the Cassadine prince. She was ready to open the door when she heard Stavros say that his son was just like him. Alexis was horrified to realize that Laura had told the truth about Stavros being alive.

    Preview:"Lucien" gives Carly some helpful business advice.

    Recap:Alexis admitted to Kristina that she and Ned had been romantically involved, but it fell apart because of her fears. She asserted that Ned was the best man she knew, and she was confident that Kristina would be safe with him. Jax came by, and while Alexis took him outside to berate him for involving Ned, Kristina grilled Ned about his relationship with Alexis. She easily surmised that Ned still loved Alexis, but he asked her to butt out of his private life. Kristina slipped out of the house when Ned went upstairs. Laura ran into Elizabeth on the docks and expressed her concern about Nikolas' plan. Liz told Laura that she was prepared to do whatever was necessary to save Lucky. She reminded Laura that she would do the same thing for Luke, and Laura couldn't disagree. She gave Liz the drug and cautioned her to only take four drops because any more could be deadly. Helena interrupted their talk and wondered why Liz was consorting with the enemy. Liz covered and said that Laura was trying to convince her to help Lucky. She assured Helena that she could handle Laura, and the two were relieved when Helena left. Nikolas demanded that Gia tell him what she knew about his plans for Liz. Sensing that she shouldn't tell him the truth, Gia kept her silence. She simply told Nikolas that he had to stay away from Liz and begged him to focus on something more positive. She attempted to seduce him in order to keep him from hurting Liz, but Nikolas stuck to his resolve. He warned Gia to stay away from him before she got hurt.

When he woke up, he drifted in and out of lucidity. He believed that it was 1979 and the only person he knew was Roy. Melissa wanted to take Luke to the hospital, but he wouldn't hear of it. Roy decided to hide Luke, but he needed Laura's help. Lucky wanted to go with them, but Roy reminded him that if he knew where Luke was, Helena could get the information out of him. Lucky promised Luke that he would continue to fight on his behalf. Roy took Luke to the old cabin where Luke rambled on and on about Bobbie and Ruby. Laura arrived and cried when she saw the state that Luke was in. He reached out to her, and Laura took him in her arms.

    Preview:Laura is relieved to see Luke again.

    Recap:Alexis admitted to Kristina that she and Ned had been romantically involved, but it fell apart because of her fears. She asserted that Ned was the best man she knew, and she was confident that Kristina would be safe with him. Jax came by, and while Alexis took him outside to berate him for involving Ned, Kristina grilled Ned about his relationship with Alexis. She easily surmised that Ned still loved Alexis, but he asked her to butt out of his private life. Kristina slipped out of the house when Ned went upstairs. Laura ran into Elizabeth on the docks and expressed her concern about Nikolas' plan. Liz told Laura that she was prepared to do whatever was necessary to save Lucky. She reminded Laura that she would do the same thing for Luke, and Laura couldn't disagree. She gave Liz the drug and cautioned her to only take four drops because any more could be deadly. Helena interrupted their talk and wondered why Liz was consorting with the enemy. Liz covered and said that Laura was trying to convince her to help Lucky. She assured Helena that she could handle Laura, and the two were relieved when Helena left. Nikolas demanded that Gia tell him what she knew about his plans for Liz. Sensing that she shouldn't tell him the truth, Gia kept her silence. She simply told Nikolas that he had to stay away from Liz and begged him to focus on something more positive. She attempted to seduce him in order to keep him from hurting Liz, but Nikolas stuck to his resolve. He warned Gia to stay away from him before she got hurt. Gia followed him to the docks and was dismayed to hear him tell Helena that he would follow through with the plan to kill Liz. Roy and Melissa dragged an unconscious Luke out of Stavros' crypt. When he woke up, he drifted in and out of lucidity. He believed that it was 1979 and the only person he knew was Roy. Melissa wanted to take Luke to the hospital, but he wouldn't hear of it.

    Preview:Alexis is stunned to see Kristina at Ned's house.

    Recap:Mac continued the Sorel investigation at GH by bringing in a janitor who identified Bobbie as the nurse outside of Sorel's room. Bobbie told Mac that she was visiting Zander to thank him for saving Carly's life, and his room just happened to be across from Sorel's. Melissa butt in to say that it was perfectly normal for any nurse or doctor to be in any part of the hospital. Alan and Monica chimed in to say that Mac really needed to stop turning GH into his office. Mac made them understand that he was just trying to solve a case, and that he really didn't want any of his friends to be guilty. However, he couldn't ignore the fact that they all had ample motive. Alan and Monica later declared their solidarity to each other and agreed to back whatever the other said. After receiving another tip from Luke, Roy and Lucky went to a dive bar in the hopes of finding Luke or some kind of clue. They noticed that a coffin was drawn on the bar's wall that was just like the one Luke drew in the cave. Inside, Roy bribed the gruff bartender into telling them that he had seen Luke, but noted that he wasn't in very good condition. Lucky charmed a woman at the bar, and she told him that Luke had tried to get her to go the cemetery with him. Melissa arrived to aid them in their search, and they all went to the cemetery. Lucky found the Cassadine crypt and deduced that his father might have deemed it a safe place to hide. Melissa and Roy were shocked to see an unconscious Luke in Stavros' supposed resting place. Alexis paid Ned a visit after talking to Jax and finding out that Kristina was there. She was stunned to see her little sister in her ex-fiance's house, but covered it well. When Ned asked who Kristina was to Alexis, she lied and said that Kristina was a client who needed protection. Ned bought her story and left the two women to talk. Kristina was surprised that Alexis hadn't told Ned the truth, and Alexis admitted that she wasn't sure why she had lied. Stavros congratulated his mother on her challenge to Nikolas and concurred that killing Elizabeth was the perfect test for his son. Helena couldn't believe that he knew about it already since she had only told Nikolas hours before. Stavros told her that she was slipping a little because Gia had overheard Helena's conversation and had consequently spilled the news to "Lucien." Helena worried that Gia was going to warn Liz of Nikolas' plans. Nikolas played the part of the spoiled prince when he went to see Laura and found Scott there. Scott was ready to toss the young Cassadine on his ear, but Laura convinced him to give her a moment alone with her son. Once Scott was gone, Laura chastised Nikolas for visiting her since Helena could be watching. Nikolas confided Helena's demand to his mother and asked if there was a way for Liz to appear to be dead in order to fool Helena. Laura promised to look into it, but she feared for both Liz and Nikolas. She went to the hospital and told Bobbie that the Cassadine situation had grown more dangerous for everyone. She asked Bobbie about a drug that would simulate death and begged her former sister-in-law not to ask any questions. Without hesitation, Bobbie got her a drug that would slow the heartbeat and breath, but she warned Laura that taking too much of the drug would cause the user to go into cardiac arrest. Just as Helena feared, Gia went to Liz's studio under the guise of renewing their friendship. She claimed to want to make amends with Liz and suggested that they spend more time together. Unaware that Gia knew of "the plan," Liz coldly told Gia that they were never going to be friends. Nikolas showed up, and Gia stood in front of Liz protectively. Nikolas told her that he was taking Liz away for the weekend, and Gia panicked. She urged Liz to give her a number where she could be reached just in case something happened to Lucky. Liz declared that she and Lucky were finished, and he was no longer her concern. Nikolas asked for a moment alone with Gia, and Liz acquiesced. Gia immediately rounded on him and demanded to know what he planned to do to Liz.

    Preview: A disoriented Luke phones home.

    Recap:Stefan and Laura were horrified to realize that Stavros was alive because Helena had her son cryogenically frozen and subsequently restored. Stefan's anger grew when he realized that the DNA found on Chloe's body was Stavros' and not his. He blamed Stavros for Chloe's murder and told Laura that it wasn't safe for her or Lesley Lu to remain in Port Charles. Laura was determined to stay and protect her family. She refused to let Stavros terrorize her the way he had twenty years ago. Stefan desperately tried to think of a way that he could get out of jail immediately so that he could get rid of Stavros. He and Laura decided that out of everyone, Nikolas was probably the safest, so they would focus their concern on the rest of the Spencer clan. Laura promised Stefan that she would keep quiet about Stavros, and she ran home to check on Lucky and Lulu. Lucky received a call from a disoriented Luke. Lucky was relieved to hear that his father was alive, but confused by Luke's message. Luke told Lucky to find Roy and tell him that he had to hustle, and that they were running out of time. Before Lucky could find out where Luke was, his father hung up. Lucky asked a visiting Scott to stay with Lulu while he went to find Roy. When Laura returned, she was grateful to see Scott since she was in serious need of comfort. Kristina and Ned argued about her presence in his home. Though he had initially said she could stay with him, he began to doubt the wisdom of that decision. He wondered if Jax was handing him a mess of trouble, and he didn't want to get involved in any of his friend's shenanigans. Affronted, Kristina said she would leave and stay at a hotel. As they bantered back and forth, Ned realized that he was being rude, and he apologized to Kristina. He asked her if she would do him the honor of staying with him, and she agreed. At the hospital, Mac interrupted Roy and Melissa's personal discussion to grill them about the Sorel murder case. This time, his questions were for Roy since Roy's fingerprints had been found on the picture of Michael by Sorel's bed. Trying to protect him, Melissa said that Roy had nothing to do with Sorel, and he must have found the picture by accident. Alan and Monica came in and demanded that Mac stop turning the hospital into an extension of the PCPD. Melissa was surprised when Monica said that she had been in the ICU, as had any number of people. Mac received a tip that a janitor had seen a nurse outside of Sorel's room. While they waited for the janitor, Lucky arrived and took Roy aside to tell him about the conversation with Luke. Roy reluctantly left Melissa in order to follow the lead with Lucky. Meanwhile, Bobbie happened by and asked what was going on. Everyone was shocked when the janitor identified Bobbie as the nurse he had seen outside of Sorel's room. Nikolas burst into Elizabeth's studio in a dither after his conversation with Helena. He told Liz that his grandmother had decided upon his final test, and once he passed, she promised to tell him the secret of Lucky's brainwashing. Liz said that whatever the test was, Nikolas had to go through with it no matter what. Her jaw dropped when Nikolas declared that his final test was to kill her. Helena believed that if Nikolas could kill Liz, he was truly worthy of the Cassadine title. Stoically, Liz said that if Nikolas had to kill her, then so be it. She amended her statement by saying that she was certain there was a way to make it appear as though Nikolas had killed her. Though it didn't sit well with him, Nikolas promised to find a way to do it. Meanwhile, Gia had overheard Helena's edict to Nikolas, and the horror of it sent her running to the docks for breathing room. Lucien/Stavros found her there and convinced her to tell him what was wrong. When she spilled out her story, she concluded it by telling him that she had to tell the police in case Nikolas actually did it. Stavros reminded her that she hadn't actually heard Nikolas say he would do it, and he played on her feelings for Nikolas to get her to put her police confession on hold. Though she didn't go to the police, Gia did go to Liz and told her rival that they needed to talk immediately.

    Preview: Stefan and Laura work together to decode the disks.

    Recap: Gia planned to confront Nikolas about her suspicions that he and Elizabeth weren't really together. She went to the yacht and found him engaged in a Tai Chi workout. When Helena called out to him, Gia hid before either of them saw her. She listened as Nikolas reiterated his demand to Helena that he be given full control of the Cassadine estate. Helena told him that his infatuation with women made her question his ability to rule the family effectively. She no longer believed that Liz was the right woman for him because of her tendency to run to Lucky. Nikolas coldly stated that he would have Liz if he wanted her and he would make her forget all about Lucky. Helena surprised him by mentioning Gia's loyalty, stating that Nikolas needed a woman who was absolutely loyal to the family. Nikolas commanded his grandmother to stop worrying about his choice in women and to start believing that he was the true heir to the throne. The tougher he got, the more pleased Helena became. She decided that he was indeed worthy of his title and she only had one last test for him to pass. Nikolas declared that whatever the test was, he would do it. Elizabeth went to Lucky and begged him to leave Port Charles with her. He told her to stop trying to save him, but she stated that she was the one who needed saving. Liz feared for her life since Helena was furious that she had stolen the Ice Princess. Lucky told her that he wouldn't let Helena hurt her, but he couldn't leave town. He suggested that she turn to Sonny or even Jason for help if she was truly scared. Liz couldn't believe that he would send her to someone else, but he said he really needed to focus on taking care of the people he loved. Liz was crushed that he still didn't remember his love for her. She jogged his memory by telling him about their trip to New York and reminded him of all the dreams they had shared. Lucky shocked her by murmuring "permanent lock," which were the words they always used to describe their love. Liz was ecstatic that he remembered that, but her elation dimmed when Lucky still insisted that he didn't love her and couldn't leave town with her. Jax brought Kristina to Ned's house and asked him if she could stay with him for a while. Jax was surprised to learn that the duo not only knew each other, but had taken an instant dislike to each other. Without revealing her true identity, Jax told Ned that Kristina was special to Alexis and Alexis would be thrilled to learn that her friend was safe. Ned reluctantly agreed and Kristina prepared to move in. Laura visited Stefan to tell him of the intruder in her house. She showed him the Cassadine medallion that was left behind, and Stefan confirmed that it belonged to Stavros. Laura questioned whether Helena could simply be playing mind games with her, but Stefan didn't think it was possible. Laura wondered how Helena could wake the dead, and her statement caused her to remember the disks. She raced to Felicia's house and asked her if she had the disks that Luke had stolen from Helena. Felicia put the clues together and realized that Luke's behavior towards her must have been caused by Helena. She gave Laura the disks and offered any assistance she could give. Laura borrowed Felicia's laptop and went back to the jail cell. She and Stefan broke through all the levels of the disks and finally got to a series of medical instructions. As they read them, they realized that the instructions were about bringing a dead person back to life. Stefan looked at Laura in horror and whispered that Helena had actually found a way to revive Stavros.

    Preview: Carly tears up the divorce papers from Sonny.

    Recap: Lucky took Roy to the cabin where he had finally come to terms with Luke's rape of Laura. He thought that maybe Luke would have gone there since it was a place that represented safety to both of them. Though they found signs that Luke might have been there, he wasn't around when they searched. A feeling of unease about Laura sent Lucky racing back to her house with Roy at his side. Laura saw Stavros in the mirror, but when she turned around, he had disappeared. A series of strange noises caused her to get a baseball bat to investigate outside. Fortunately, it was just Scott, who wanted to call the police since he thought she was afraid of an intruder. She told him that the police couldn't help and neither could he. Scott grew frustrated at her seeming inability to trust him, but Laura told him that it had nothing to do with trust. She simply couldn't involve him at this point. Scott backed off, but told her to call him if she needed anything. Alone again, Laura heard more noises and the lights suddenly went off. Unbeknownst to her, Stavros lurked in back of her and reached out to her. She screamed, and Lucky and Roy came in before Stavros totally revealed himself. While Roy searched the property, Laura confided in Lucky that the monster was back. They were all stunned when Roy didn't find a person, but he did find the Cassadine medallion. Laura took one look at it and said it belonged to Stavros. Jax warned Angel to beware of Sonny, but Angel reminded him that she was perfectly capable of taking care of herself. She didn't want to get in the middle of Jax and Sonny's feud, and she suggested that Jax work out his problems with Sonny without involving her. He told her that the only reason he said anything at all was because he cared about her. To that end, he told her that he was spending the night at the lake house to make sure she was safe. A sultry Angel had no objection to him staying. Helena continued to berate Nikolas for his choice in girlfriends and told him that she had a hard time believing that he was "hard" enough to manage the Cassadine estate. A frustrated Nikolas told his grandmother that he would break up with Liz if it would please her. Surprised that he would agree so easily, Helena said that she had something more in mind. Nikolas threatened her with legal action if she didn't turn over the Cassadine estate to him immediately. Helena warned him not to threaten her and told him that she would let him know what his final test would be. Gia and Liz argued over Liz's casual attitude about Nikolas' welfare. Gia didn't think her rival was acting much like the love-stricken girlfriend she claimed to be. Liz suggested that Gia butt out of Nikolas' affairs, but Gia wouldn't be put off. When she ran into Nikolas in the hotel, she slyly told him that she had left Liz flirting with a bartender. Nikolas' lack of concern prompted Gia's suspicions even further. Carly was thrilled to see Sonny at her house, but he dashed her romantic hopes by telling her that he had only come to read Michael a story and give him a present. When Carly started talking about reuniting their family, Sonny halted her words by handing her divorce papers. Carly was stunned that he was serious about ending their marriage. He reminded her that she had ended their marriage by lying to him and putting him in an untenable situation. Carly begged him to listen to his heart, which she suspected was still full of love for her. Sonny said he couldn't afford to be ruled by his heart. He told her that he would have Alexis pick up the papers once Carly had signed them. When he left, Carly tore the divorce papers apart.

    Recap: At the PC Grill, Nikolas and Liz lamented their inability to recover the Ice Princess after Lucky threw it into the river. Nikolas took Liz's hand and assured her that they would find a way to help Lucky. Gia interrupted their cozy moment by telling Liz that Nikolas was a two-timer who couldn't be trusted. Helena gave the duo even more grief when she accused Liz of stealing the Ice Princess. She demanded that Liz return it immediately. Lucky strolled in and casually told Helena that he was the one who stole the Ice Princess and that now Helena had no means of controlling him. Helena covered her shock by reminding Lucky that they were friends and that he shouldn't cross her. Nikolas tried to stop Lucky from saying the wrong thing by declaring that his brother was insane like Luke. Fortunately, Roy came in and told Lucky that they needed to speak immediately. Roy brought Lucky back into focus by asking him if he could think of any place that Luke might have gone to hide. Lucky remembered something, and he and Roy ran off to investigate. Meanwhile, Helena ordered Nikolas to come to her hotel room immediately and leave his devious girlfriend behind. When she left, Gia tried to get Nikolas not to go with his grandmother, and she asked Liz to help her. Liz remained calm and said that Nikolas was free to do what he wanted. After Nikolas was gone, Gia asked her how she could claim to be in love with Nikolas and not try and help him break free of the Cassadines. When Liz didn't answer, Gia realized that she and Nikolas weren't truly in love. Angel and Carly continued to duke it out at the PC Grill. Their fight actually became physical when Angel shoved Carly, who retaliated with a hard push back. Angel warned Carly that she could get rid of her very easily if she told the police what she saw Carly doing on the night of Sorel's murder. An unshaken Carly retorted that Angel would then have to explain her own actions and why she did nothing to help. Taggert stepped in and took them both to the police station, citing them for disorderly conduct. His real intention was to try and get either or both of them to confess what they knew about Sorel's murder. Unfortunately for him, neither woman would give up any new information. Using Brenda and Lily as examples of Sonny's failure with women, Jax advised his rival to leave Angel alone. Sonny casually said that Angel could take care of herself, but suggested that Jax talk to Angel directly about staying away. Jax brought up Carly's dysfunctional need to hold onto Sonny, and Sonny turned lethal and told Jax to never mention Carly to him again. Jax hoped that Carly and Sonny would get back together since neither of them deserved any better than each other. When Jax left, Sonny picked up a picture of Michael and Carly and flashed back to the night that Carly told Michael that Sonny wasn't going to live with them any more. He went to Carly's house and came downstairs when she announced to Letitia that she was home. Meanwhile, Jax went out to the lake house and dismissed Sonny's bodyguard at gunpoint. Angel was surprised that he had forced the guard to leave, but Jax declared she didn't need Sonny's protection. Laura visited Stefan again and was horrified when he suggested that Stavros was still alive. She insisted that Helena was simply using their fears to control them, but Stefan pointed to specific incidents that made Laura question whether he was right. When she referred to Stavros as a monster, it reminded her that Lucky had told her that the monster was alive and out to destroy them. She fearfully wondered if Stefan could be right. She raced home to talk to Lucky and instead found Melissa in her living room. Melissa told her about her conversation with Luke, and Laura was extremely relieved to hear that he was alive. As Laura cleaned up Lulu's toys, she spied Stavros in the mirror.

    Preview: Carly and Angel brawl in the PC Grill.

    Recap: Angel confirmed Carly's story to Sonny by telling him that she and Jax had once been lovers. When he pressed her for details, she asked him to tell her about Lily and Brenda. Sonny exploded in anger, and Angel responded in equal force. She told him that her past was not his business unless he intended to take their relationship to the next level. She declared that he was acting like a jealous lover when they hadn't even kissed. Though clearly tempted, Sonny didn't touch her, and she stormed out of his office. Carly taunted Jax by reminding him about Sonny's relationship with Brenda and telling him about Sonny's new relationship with Angel. Jax turned the tables on her by pointing out that everyone seemed to be involved with someone except for her. He left her and visited Kristina at the lake house, where she revealed that Carly had wheedled information out of her. Fed up, Jax went to see Sonny to warn him to stay away from Angel. Meanwhile, Angel headed to the PC Grill, where she found Carly at the bar. She bought her rival a glass of champagne and congratulated her for successfully upsetting Sonny. As she raised her glass in a toast, she tossed the champagne in Carly's face. Carly responded by throwing her champagne at Angel. Angel warned Carly that it was dangerous for her to keep meddling in people's lives. Carly said she wasn't scared of Angel and told her to do her worst. Lucky happened upon Melissa and Roy as they studied the walls of the cave. They had found a drawing presumably left by Luke that depicted a man in a coffin. Roy asked Lucky if he knew what Luke was trying to tell them, and Lucky said it was the monster. Lucky had come to the cave because his father had made him wait there once when they were in trouble. Lucky mentioned the word "Rainey," but couldn't tell them that it was the manufacturer of Stavros' cryogenic chamber. Roy and Melissa took Lucky back to Laura's house, and Melissa asked Roy what was really wrong with Lucky. Helena berated Stavros again for not killing Stefan. She was worried that the DNA test Stefan had taken would eventually lead them to Stavros. Stavros however, remained unconcerned, as he didn't think the PCPD was advanced enough to discover the truth. Laura visited Stefan in jail and told him that she believed he hadn't killed Chloe. She wanted his help with Nikolas and Lucky in exchange for her help in nailing Helena for Chloe's murder. Stefan said that he would do what he could from behind bars, but warned Laura that Helena wouldn't rest until she saw him destroyed. Laura confided in Stefan that she had been thinking of Stavros a lot and had even thought she saw him. Stefan told her about his own encounters with Stavros mementos, and both wondered how Helena had managed to plant them. Alexis showed up and delivered the bad news that the DNA found on Chloe's body matched Stefan's so completely that it could only have come from him or a full-blood relative. He asked if she was starting to doubt him, but she assured him that she would find a way to prove his innocence. Alone, Stefan paced back and forth and could not stop thinking of his brother.

    Preview: Alexis stops Stefan from strangling his mother.

    Recap: After examining the autopsy report on Sorel, Mac and Taggert were stunned to realize that Sorel had been smothered by a pillow. They wondered exactly how Sorel had died since the respirator was also turned off and he was hooked up to an EKG stimulator. Mac speculated that the murder investigation had become murkier than ever. Sonny enjoyed breakfast while Adam and Johnny brought in a bound and gagged A.J. Sonny very casually asked A.J. if he was ready to be a man and give up rights to Michael. A.J. told Sonny that he would never walk away from his son, and he accused Carly of being an unfit parent. Sonny warned him to leave Carly out of the discussion, and he outlined all the reasons that A.J. wasn't good enough to be Michael's father. He brought out papers and suggested that A.J. sign away his final rights to Michael or deal with the consequences. A.J. refused, so Sonny had him put on a meat hook and left him to cool off and rethink his decision. Jax ran into Helena in the hallway of the hotel and hid his surprise when she asked him about the young woman staying in his room. She didn't seem to know who Kristina was, but warned him that his time would be better spent with her than by trifling with Cassadine affairs. Inside, Jax was displeased to see Alexis, Kristina, and Stefan sitting cozily together and talking. Sensing that he was on overload, Kristina decided to take a nap, but not before hugging her half-brother and Alexis, and then thanking Jax for giving her back her family. Jax and Stefan continued to butt heads over Chloe, but their argument was stalled when Mac showed up. He told them that Chloe's autopsy had shown a blood type that wasn't hers, and he asked Stefan if he would be willing to take a DNA test. Against Alexis' advisement, Stefan agreed. Before leaving the hotel, Stefan and Alexis visited Helena, and he threatened his mother's life if she tried to hurt anyone he loved again. Taggert went to Carly's house and tried to trick her into confessing by telling her that Angel had told him everything. Carly told him that Angel was a liar, but he said that Angel had seen what Carly did to Sorel. Just then, Angel spoke up from the doorway and said that all she had told Taggert was that Carly was driving around town without a license. Carly was stunned that Angel would protect her, and the two women told Taggert that his efforts at entrapment were pathetic. When he left, Angel told Carly that the only reason she didn't rat her out was because she didn't want Sonny racing to Carly's rescue. She accused Carly of being a terrible mother who only used her son to keep a man who didn't want her. Carly retorted that Angel was a terrible daughter who didn't seem to care that her father had been killed. Mike came in and interrupted their argument and asked Angel to leave. Carly showed him the pictures of Jax that she had stolen from Angel's house and mused that when Sonny learned of the Jax/Angel connection, he would be furious. To that end, she went to the lake house to try and get more evidence. Instead, she saw Jax drop Kristina off, and she knocked on the door to introduce herself to the newcomer. At the Quartermaine mansion, everyone was surprised when Zander showed up at Emily's behest to make sure that Lila was well. Alan and Monica were angry that he had checked himself out of the hospital, and Edward was angry that Zander wasn't in jail for murdering Sorel. Ned deflected the tirade by asking Edward about his alibi for the night of the murder. A sputtering Edward claimed that he had a business meeting, but wouldn't elaborate. Eager to leave, Zander told them that if Lila was all right, he would go. Alan didn't want him to leave and asked Zander to move into the mansion in order to be safe. Realizing that Alan was simply trying to keep him away from Sonny, Zander thanked him, but didn't accept the offer. In the police station, Stefan submitted to the DNA exam, but told Mac that he should also have Helena take the test. Mac asked if he had proof that Helena had murdered Chloe. Stefan declared that he wasn't asking Mac to arrest his mother for murdering Chloe, he wanted her arrested for murdering him.

    Recap: Sonny and Jax nearly came to blows during Chloe's memorial service as Sonny berated Jax for not protecting his woman. Carly tried to step in to tell Sonny about Angel's connection to Jax, but Sonny brushed her off. After seeing Angel smirk at her, Carly went into Sorel's memorial room to confront her rival. Taggert and Mac secretly listened as the women exchanged barbs. Their attention was piqued when Angel told Carly that she saw what she did the night that Sorel was murdered. Unfortunately for the cops, nothing more was said than that. Still, Taggert questioned Carly, who didn't have a plausible alibi for the night of the murder. In response, Carly pointed the finger at Angel, suggesting that Angel was trying to frame her in order to steal Sonny. Carly was stunned to learn that someone else had witnessed her at General Hospital on the fateful night. When A.J. later taunted her about soon getting custody of Michael, Carly realized that he was the witness, and she burst into Chloe's memorial to confront him. Meanwhile, Angel went to Sonny's office to tell him about Carly's threat and presumably to warn him about her relationship with Jax. Before she could tell him anything, Taggert arrived with questions for Angel. Nikolas and Elizabeth turned up at Chloe's memorial, but were distracted by thoughts of the lost Ice Princess. Gia arrived, and mistaking their closeness for intimacy, she accused them of inappropriate behavior. Later, Gia saw a tearful Nikolas on the docks and expressed her surprise at his show of emotion. Alexis posted bail for Stefan and was stunned when he announced his intention to attend Chloe's memorial service. She advised him against such a move, and he asked her if she believed that he killed Chloe. Choosing her words carefully, Alexis declared that she thought someone had deliberately murdered Chloe, and she didn't feel that her brother would have deliberately hurt anyone. Grateful for her loyalty, Stefan asked her to accompany him to the funeral home. Once there, the duo interrupted a Quartermaine family prayer when they entered the room. Everyone ordered Stefan out, though he felt that he had every right to be there. He eventually left, but Alexis stayed to say goodbye to her best friend. Both Jax and Ned offered her a shoulder to cry on, but Alexis rejected them in favor of going after Stefan, who had left to confront Helena. Lucky attempted to warn Laura that Stavros was still alive by referring to him as the monster. Laura didn't understand what he meant, but she promised him that she would keep him safe. Lucky told her that she was the one who didn't understand because the monster was after her. He left before Laura could figure out what he meant. In his lab, Stavros prepared to reunite with Laura. He took a bottle of wine to her office and was going inside when he heard her talking to Scott. He listened on the other side of the door as Scott declared his love for Laura. Angry, Stavros waited for them to leave, then he left the wine bottle on Laura's desk along with a note. He found Scott's business card and fingered it thoughtfully. Lucky broke into the Cassadine lab and found the vial of biotoxin. When one of Helena's men came in, Lucky held up the vial and warned the man to leave. Lucky planted the vial in Stavros' wine chamber so that it would be broken when a bottle of wine was picked up.

    Preview: Alexis is overjoyed to be reunited with Kristina. Recap: Carly frantically hid when Angel and Sonny returned to the lake house. Upon entering, Angel immediately figured out that someone had been there, and Sonny searched the premises. He didn't find anyone, but he offered to send his men out as protection. Angel declared that with her father dead, she was no longer in jeopardy. She invited Sonny to stay for a glass of wine or a boat ride on the lake, but he declined. When he left, Angel angrily ordered Carly to come out. Without an ounce of shame, Carly emerged from her hiding place and immediately started berating Angel for trying to seduce Sonny. Carly told her rival that she would never have Sonny and advised her to back off. On the lake house porch, Carly privately gloated over the roll of film she had found, as she believed whatever the pictures were, they would be bad news for Angel. Alan visited a restless Zander in the hospital and offered him protection from the police department's questions. Zander was suspicious of Alan's helpfulness and wondered at the sudden change. Alan smiled knowingly and said that he was certain that Zander hadn't killed Sorel. He wanted to help Zander because he believed that he was trying to turn his life around. Zander thanked Alan, but informed him that he would be working with Sonny. When Alan vehemently disagreed with that plan, Sonny came in and told him it was none of his business. Alan gave Zander Emily's number at the hospital and suggested that he talk things over with her. Sonny asked Zander if he was certain that he wanted to get involved in the kind of life the mob offered. He outlined the various bad things he had done — and continued to do — and cautioned the teen against rushing into the business. Zander just as steadfastly claimed that he could handle whatever the life brought him, and he accepted Sonny's job offer. Alexis tried to pull herself together at the police station and told Ned that while she thanked him for his comfort, she had to be strong and focused. She alluded to almost finding something important on the same day that she had lost something equally as important. Ned questioned whether that had something to do with her mother and the necklace, but Alexis shut him out by saying that she couldn't discuss anything with him. Not knowing how else to help her, Ned left to tell his family about Chloe. Kristina, who had been watching Alexis from a corner, stepped forward and started to introduce herself. Busying herself with papers, Alexis told her that she didn't have time to talk, and Kristina left in a huff. At the Quartermaine mansion, A.J. triumphantly informed Monica and Edward that he would soon be getting custody of Michael. He told them that he was helping the police to build a case against Carly for Sorel's murder. Edward was pleased with his grandson's deviousness, and even Lila said she hoped that A.J. would get Michael back. When Alan came in, he asked if anyone had seen Chloe, but no one had. Shortly thereafter, Ned came in and gave them the sad and shocking news of Chloe's death. Kristina returned to the hotel to find Jax pacing with worry. She told him that she had seen Alexis and realized that she was a stuffy corporate lawyer. Kristina decided that she didn't want to meet Alexis after all; instead, she wanted to leave town immediately. Jax brought her down a notch when he told her about Chloe's death and how much it was hurting them all. Kristina instantly apologized and realized that she had jumped to an erroneous conclusion. A knock at the door sent her hiding, and Jax opened the door to a weeping Alexis. He managed to make her smile, and she thanked him for being such a great friend. She told him that as much as she wanted to meet Kristina, the meeting should wait until she was in better shape. Kristina came out of the other room and declared that it was too late. She and Alexis stared at each other awkwardly until Kristina handed Alexis a photograph. Alexis was stunned to see that it was a picture of her mother, and Kristina said it was her mother, too. Alexis finally grabbed Kristina in a hug and whispered that she had found her little sister.

    Preview: Ned and Alexis offers each other comfort. Recap:Sonny ran into Angel at the Grille and was surprised by the change in her attitude. She told him that she had just retrieved her father's body and was prepared to lay him to rest. She displayed a sauciness that Sonny found intriguing, and he asked her why it was that she always wore white. Angel told him that after her husband died, everyone expected her to wear black in mourning, but it reminded her too much of her grandmother, so she wore white instead. Sonny surprised himself and Angel by offering to help her make Sorel's funeral arrangements, and they left for the lake house. Carly went to the lake house to see Angel, but when Angel didn't answer, she went inside and started rummaging around. She found an undeveloped roll of film and managed to pocket it just before Sonny and Angel showed up. Nikolas was furious with Elizabeth for not telling him that she had taken the Ice Princess. He was also angry because Lucky threw the diamond away, therefore decreasing their chances of releasing him from Helena's control. Liz was stung when Nikolas suggested that it might be better for her to stay away from Lucky. He soon apologized and told her that the stress of everything was making him crazy. Jax was annoyed with Alexis when she refused to believe that Stefan had killed Chloe. She even decided to act as her brother's legal counsel since it seemed that no one else was available to represent him. Stavros waited for Laura in her office and smiled when he heard her in the hallway. She wasn't alone, however, as Scott had accompanied her to the office. Laura was thanking Scott for surprising her on her business trip and turning it into one of pleasure. She wanted to go into her office to return business calls, but Scott convinced her to leave it alone for one more night. They were interrupted when Lucky and Gia came in to show them new photo shoot pictures. Laura was stunned when Gia filled her in on Lucky and Liz's breakup as well as Luke's erratic behavior. After berating Scott for keeping her family's business a secret from her, she sought out Liz and Nikolas for more answers. Laura reeled when they told her about their plan to help Lucky. When Nikolas left, Liz revealed to Laura that the damage to Lucky was much more intense than they had realized. Stavros ran into Gia and apologized for spending so much time apart from her. He offered to make it up to her by taking her to dinner, but when Lucky came in, he told Stavros to leave her alone. He didn't remember who Stavros was, but he told Gia that the man was dangerous. Later, Stavros left blood-colored red roses on Laura's desk along with a note saying that he couldn't wait to see her again. Ned was intrigued by Kristina, who refused to introduce herself or to give him an explanation about her disguise. Their flirtation was interrupted when Ned received a call from Jax asking him to hurry to the police station. Ned was devastated when he learned of Chloe's death, and when he found out that Stefan was the chief suspect, he lunged at him. His rage turned to sadness when he saw Alexis, who broke down in his arms. Unbeknownst to them both, Kristina had followed Ned to the station and watched them from a corner.

    Preview: Stefan breaks down after finding Chloe's dead body. Recap: Stefan returned to Wyndemere and casually went through his mail. Upon entering the living room, he noticed a strange lump in the drapes. He pulled them back and found a lifeless Chloe. Though he called 911 and attempted resuscitation, she was already gone. Stavros lurked in the background and prepared to come forward when he heard voices in the hallway, so he disappeared. Jax and Alexis, who had come to rescue Chloe, were stunned when they saw Stefan lying next to her on the floor. Jax accused Stefan of murdering Chloe, while Alexis collapsed in tears at her friend's side. When Mac and the other police officers arrived, he wanted everyone to come down to the station. Stefan insisted that he hadn't killed Chloe, but Jax was just as adamant that he had. Alexis could barely speak through her pain, but she advised her brother to keep silent. In the boxcar, Liz tried to get through to Lucky by using the Ice Princess, but she didn't know how to use it the way that Helena did. Not knowing what else to do, Liz kissed him and asked if he felt anything. Lucky declared that he had felt a brief spark, but he still had no memory of being in love with her. Deciding to stop Helena once and for all, Lucky took the diamond from her and raced to the docks. Liz followed him just in time to see him hurl the Ice Princess into the river. He didn't feel any different once the diamond was gone, but they were both relieved that Helena no longer had the means to control him. Helena's henchmen found them and demanded that they hand the diamond over. Lucky told him where it was and asked the man to tell Helena that her reign of mental terror was over. Helena imagined the scenario of Stefan and Stavros finally coming face to face. She delighted in the notion of Stavros ridding the world of Stefan. When Stavros came in, she wanted all of the details of the murder and wanted to make sure that it would implicate Jax. She was thoroughly displeased to hear what Stavros had done, as she felt that it left too much to chance. Her displeasure increased when Stavros received a message from Elton saying that Laura had returned to town. Kristina was surprised by a visit from Angel, who had come to distract Kristina from her boredom. Kristina revealed her nervousness about meeting Alexis, and Angel tried to reassure her that Alexis would like her. Kristina was tired of waiting for Jax to deliver Alexis and decided to use a disguise to get out of the hotel. She went to Luke's dressed in a man's hat and overcoat and sat at the bar. Ned had been discussing business with a potential music client, and he came back to find Kristina in his seat. With her back to him, he thought she was a man and demanded that she vacate. She whirled to face him and removed her hat to display her long mane of fiery red hair. Roy and Melissa stalled Mac as he continued to question Melissa about her involvement in Sorel's murder. Mac turned the tables and accused Roy of being a possible suspect as well. He told Roy that the fibers they had found on Sorel's alarm matched the fibers of Roy's shirt. Mac was called away, but told Melissa that he had obtained a warrant to have her apartment searched. A nervous Melissa told Roy that she was keeping something about Sorel from him. Roy didn't want to know what the secret was because he was afraid it would incriminate her. They rushed to her apartment and found Taggert going through her things. He found a pulse simulator that was exactly like the one that had killed Sorel and wondered why she had it.

    Preview:Stefan severes his ties with Helena once and for all. Recap: Roy helped Melissa search the hospital for a missing Chloe. During their search, they ran into Mac, who wanted to question Melissa again regarding Sorel's murder. Roy tried to shield Melissa, but when Mac informed them that he knew Sorel had ordered Leo's death, Melissa broke down. She told Mac that she had legitimate reason for wanting Sorel dead, but insisted that she hadn't killed him. Roy deflected Mac's attention by talking about all the ways that he would have left Sorel to die, and Mac asked him where he had been the night Sorel was killed. Alexis was stunned when Jax revealed that he had found Kristina. She said that it was impossible because she had never spoken of Kristina with anyone — not even Stefan. Jax said that he had met Kristina when they both hired the same PI for different reasons. He grew close to her and eventually found out about her connection to Alexis. Though she initially didn't believe him, Alexis soon accepted the truth and wanted to know everything about Kristina. Jax suggested that the two meet face to face since Kristina was just as eager to meet Alexis. Before they could leave, Alexis received a call from Alan, who asked if Chloe was with her. Alexis and Jax decided that they would find Chloe and make sure she wasn't in trouble and then they would go see Kristina. Helena was infuriated to see that the Ice Princess had been stolen. She sent her associate in search of it and told him the consequences would be dire if he didn't find it. Gia happened by in the midst of her tirade, and Helena detained her to ask where Elizabeth was. Gia made no bones about hating Liz as much as she hated Helena, but said she had no idea where she was. When Helena grew suspicious, Gia changed the subject by mentioning her new boyfriend, Lucien Cane. At the Cassadine crypt, Stefan was horrified to see that Stavros' chamber was empty. He immediately went to Helena and asked where his brother was. Helena experienced a moment of panic when she thought that Stefan had discovered that Stavros was alive. Stefan eased her fears when he asked where she had buried her brother's dead body if not in the family crypt. Helena made up a story about wanting to fool Laura and Luke, but Stefan didn't really care where Stavros was buried. He expressed his pity for Helena's obsession with her eldest son and told her that he was finished with her and their entire clan. He stalked out after telling his mother to go to hell, and Helena was visibly shaken by his anger. Liz attempted to use the Ice Princess to bring Lucky back to normal, but she didn't know how. Lucky had moments of breaking through his brainwashing, but he wasn't able to disassociate Helena's programming with Liz's commands. He warned her that if she didn't leave, he would hurt her the same way he hurt Luke. Chloe stumbled upon Stavros' picture at Wyndemere and was beyond shocked to see that Lucien Cane and Stavros were one and the same. To her great horror, Stavros walked into the room at that very moment. She tried to hide the photo album she had found and pretended that she was there to meet Stefan. Stavros initially kept up his Lucien masquerade, but his anger got the better of him as he discussed Stefan. He told Chloe that Stefan had lived in his shadow for too long and no longer deserved to live at all. Chloe hit Stavros with a statue and tried to get away from him, but he caught her. She begged him to let her go and promised him that she would take Stefan and leave the country if he would only leave them alone. Stavros pretended to consider her offer, but ultimately told her that he would never allow his brother any happiness. Angry, Chloe yelled that he was the one who wasn't good enough. Stavros turned on her menacingly and said that she had made a fatal mistake.

    Preview: Liz stole the Ice Princess to save Lucky. Recap: Alexis took Jax back to her Penthouse so that he could finally reveal what he had been withholding from her since he came to town. Jax reminded her about the theft of her mother's necklace from the auction, and Alexis asked if he knew who took it. He pulled it out of his pocket and then asked her where the other half was. Alexis was pleased that he had it, but shocked that he knew there was another half. She didn't want to discuss it until he told her that one half belonged to Kristina. She asked how he knew about Kristina, and he informed her that not only did he know about Kristina, but he had found her. Kristina, meanwhile, had left the hotel against Jax's wishes. She went to a church where she prayed for the safety of both herself and Alexis. Stefan begged Chloe for another chance to prove that he could be a good man for her. He told her about his plan to disassemble the Cassadine estate and divorce himself from the family as much as possible. He asked her if she would go away with him since leaving town was the only way he felt that he could truly renew himself. While Chloe listened compassionately, she told him that he was too much of a liar for her to ever trust him. Stefan became so agitated that Tony and Melissa ran in and asked him to leave. Stefan left and went to the Cassadine crypt, where he railed at Stavros for not being a real brother to him. He cursed the legacy Stavros had given him and then hurled an urn at Stavros' crypt. Helena demanded that Stavros kill Stefan immediately, but Stavros had other plans for his baby brother. He wanted Stefan's torture to be long and drawn out, and he planned to use Chloe to do it. Helena dismissed what she concerned a pitiful plan and ordered him to do her bidding. Stavros grabbed her around the neck and told her that she was fast outliving her usefulness. Helena stunned him by declaring that if she died, so would he, since only she knew about the medicine he needed to stay alive. She told him that he needed a series of injections or else he would start to deteriorate. Backed against the wall, a furious Stavros agreed to do what she wanted. Gia woke up in a panic when Lucky was missing from the hotel room. Liz had also fallen asleep and neither of them knew where Lucky had gone. While Gia went in search of him, Liz decided to try and nab the Ice Princess one more time. She bullied the maid into letting her into Helena's hotel room and then grabbed the large diamond from the vase. Gia found a dazed Lucky at the boxcar burning pictures of Liz. She advised him that he was doing the right thing by letting go of the past and told him that she was trying to do the same thing with Nikolas, as much as it hurt her. Liz arrived and asked Gia to give her a moment alone with Lucky. A belligerent Lucky wanted nothing to do with her until she took out the Ice Princess and held it up to him. Helena gloated over her triumph with Stavros, but the feeling didn't last when she went back to her hotel room and discovered that the Ice Princess was gone. Chloe fell into a troubled sleep after Stefan left and dreamt that Stavros was telling Helena that he would carry out her wish to have his brother killed. Chloe woke up and fearfully asked Tony if the fall could have caused her premonitions to return. While Tony didn't think it was possible, Chloe was a little more skeptical. She resolved that she needed to see a picture of Stavros just to be sure. After leaving several messages for Stefan, Chloe finally crept out of the hospital and went to Wyndemere. She found a picture of Stavros with a baby Nikolas and was horrified to see that it was the man she knew as Lucien Cane. Just then, the door opened and Stavros walked into the room.

    Preview: Carly hopes that her family is back together. Recap: Stefan surprised himself by going to confession to try and redeem his soul. Unfortunately, on the other side of the confessional booth, there was no priest — there was only Stavros. Stefan wasn't aware that his brother was his confessor as he poured out his feelings of regret over his life. When the 'priest' used phrases that sounded like Stavros, Stefan bolted. Before he could leave the chapel, Helena stopped him. She had followed him there to demand that he stop Jax from ruining the Cassadine estate. Stefan shocked her by outlining his plan to divide the estate among several charities and give them to Laura to run. When he left, Stavros emerged from the booth. Though startled to see him, Helena quickly recovered and ordered her eldest son to get rid of his younger brother finally and immediately. Alexis visited Chloe in the hospital and brought her pie to cheer her up. Chloe felt much better and even told Alexis that she didn't blame Stefan for her accident. She only wanted to hurry and heal so that she could move back to Milan and start designing again. Alexis listened as Chloe examined her feelings for both Jax and Stefan, and ultimately Chloe decided that neither man was worthy of her. As Alexis prepared to leave, Stefan came in and asked Chloe if she would hear him out one last time. Jax reassured an anxious Kristina that she would be able to meet Alexis soon, but the timing still wasn't right. In the midst of Kristina's tirade about being restless and impatient, Helena knocked on the door. Kristina listened from the terrace as Helena more or less threatened to kill Alexis and Jax if Jax didn't leave the Cassadine estate alone. When Helena left, Kristina said she finally understood what Jax meant about her situation being unsafe. Still, Jax decided that it was finally time to talk to Alexis about Kristina, and he sought her out at the hospital. A.J. demanded that Mac and Taggert arrest Carly for murdering Sorel. He told them that he had overheard Carly at the hospital talking about how she needed to stop Sorel from hurting Sonny. He had also seen Carly outside of Sorel's room. Mac asked if he wasn't just trying to slander his ex-wife so that his custody chances improved, but A.J. insisted that he was worried about Michael's safety in being with an unstable mother. Taggert turned the tables by reminding A.J. that he had equal motive for wanting Sorel dead. A.J. admitted to hating Sorel, but said he didn't kill him. Carly stalled for time when Michael repeatedly asked to see "Uncle Sonny." She took Letitia upstairs to get settled, and while she was gone, Michael called Sonny on his own and asked him to come over. Sonny arrived and showered Michael with love and affection. He took the time to teach Michael to ride his tricycle, but warned Carly not to keep using Michael to get to him. Carly insisted that she didn't even know he was coming over, and Sonny accused her of lying as usual. He had to back down when they both witnessed Michael calling Mike all by himself. Though Carly took Sonny's presence as a good sign, he dashed her hopes by telling her that he was filing for divorce.

    Preview: Carly is thrilled when Michael comes home. Recap: Jax showed up at the lake house and caught Angel skinny dipping. They were both unembarrassed by her nakedness, but she covered up so that they could discuss his reason for being there. He brought her the morning paper and a bottle of champagne to help ease the pain of her father's unsolved murder. Angel lamented that she simply wanted to bury Sorel, but the police wouldn't release his body. Jax received an urgent call from Kristina and had to leave, but reminded Angel that he would help her in any way she wanted. Angel soon had another visitor in the form of Lieutenant Taggert. Taggert was fishing for information about the nature of Angel's relationship with Sonny. Angel maintained that she and Sonny were friends and demanded that Taggert leave unless he had a legal reason to be there. In Jax's hotel room, Kristina tried on the necklace and paced the room restlessly. She searched through the phone book and found Alexis' number, but when Alexis picked up the phone, Kristina couldn't say anything. When Jax arrived, she demanded to meet Alexis immediately. Carly packed her things and prepared to leave the hotel after calling Letitia with instructions on where to bring Michael from the airport. Mike arrived, and upon seeing Carly's bags, he suggested that leaving town wasn't a good idea. Carly assured him that she wasn't going anywhere when she had a marriage to save. Carly ran into Jax in the hallway, and the two exchanged barbs about her marriage to Sonny. She warned him to stay away from her husband and to leave her alone. Mike followed Carly to the house she had rented and told her that Sonny would love the place. Carly was ecstatic when Letitia and Michael finally came, and she vowed never to be separated from her son again. After finding a note from Skye saying that she had left town for a while, Alan accused Monica of making his daughter run away. Though Monica was thrilled that Skye was gone, she claimed to have done nothing to make her leave. A.J. piped up and told them that Skye had left town at his suggestion. He confessed that Skye was helping him get Michael away from Sonny and Carly, and Sonny's threats had given Skye pause. Alan berated his son for constantly causing trouble, and he left to confront Sonny. Monica and A.J. stayed behind and speculated on whether or not Sonny had killed Sorel. When Monica relayed the details of Sorel's death, A.J. smiled and told her she had just brightened his day. He went to the police station and told Mac that Carly killed Sorel. Zander thanked the young nurse who had covered for him with the police. When she questioned the intelligence of helping him, he told her about all of the horrible things that Sorel had done. He also admitted to his own sordid past and said that Emily had helped him turn over a new leaf. He didn't want to dishonor her by getting into more trouble. The nurse promised not to say anything to the police about Zander's knowledge of how to disable hospital alarms, and Zander promised her that she wouldn't get in trouble for helping him. Sonny went to Alexis and insisted that she draw up papers for his divorce from Carly. Alexis didn't think it was a good idea for him to divorce Carly because as his wife, she didn't ever have to testify against him. She also believed that Sonny still loved Carly. Sonny was adamant that the papers be legalized immediately, and Alexis wondered if Angel was at the root of his haste. Sonny told her not to worry about his relationship with Angel, but Alexis wouldn't let the matter drop. Before they could discuss it any further, Alan showed up and demanded that Sonny stay away from all of his children. Sonny calmly deflected Alan's concerns, but when he left, Sonny told Alexis to do whatever it took to keep A.J. away from Michael.

    Preview: Nikolas drowns his sorrows by playing the sax. Recap: Sonny stopped Carly from spilling her guts when he realized that Mac and Taggert were listening from the other room. Carly caught on and told Sonny that as much as Sorel deserved to die, she didn't kill him. She asked Sonny if he had, and he smiled and said no. Mac and Taggert were dismayed when they realized that the duo had caught on to their presence. Sonny got Carly to drop the charges against Angel when she was forced to admit that she could have been mistaken about Angel's role in the kidnapping. Since there were no formal charges, everyone was free to go. Sonny told Carly to stay away from Angel and said that he had only saved her because of Michael. Roy paced outside of Melissa's apartment as he tried to find a legitimate reason for being there. She heard him and came out as he talked to himself. He wanted to go inside, but suddenly he heard a man's voice. Melissa reassured him that she wasn't on a date, that the man inside was Bruno, her mechanic. She was helping him nurse a broken heart. When Bruno came out and offered Melissa protection from Roy, Roy countered by saying that he was Melissa's boyfriend. Melissa was both thrilled and amused by Roy's claim, and the two started to get amorous when they were interrupted by Melissa's neighbor, who needed help. Roy left her alone, but not before he kissed her goodbye. Gia reluctantly left Liz alone with Lucky, after berating her rival for stealing both Nikolas and Lucky's hearts. She ran into Nikolas on the PC Grille terrace and told him about her run-in with Helena. Nikolas warned her that playing with Helena could be potentially lethal. Gia didn't believe that he cared what happened to her, and she told him about Liz and Lucky being together. She also accused Nikolas of having had Helena erase Lucky's memories of Liz so that he could have her for himself. He denied her accusations, but Gia ran away from him anyway. Filled with sorrow, Nikolas went to the docks and played a mournful song on his saxophone. Lucky woke up to find Liz sitting by his side. He told her to leave and reminded her that they were finished. She refused to leave and started to jar his memories of loving her. Lucky had a brief moment of clarity, but it frightened him, and he asked her to leave again. She was adamant that she would never leave him or stop loving him, and she eventually broke through his cold resolve. She told him that just as he had helped her through the ordeal of being raped, she would help him deal with everything Helena was doing to him. He finally relented and said that she could stay with him. As she slept, Lucky drew closer to her and sat by the bed. Liz opened her eyes to find that Lucky had taken her hand.

    Preview: Jax brings the mysterious Kristina to town. Recap: Chloe fell and hit her head after trying to pull away from Stefan during an argument. Jax had witnessed the accident and didn't want Stefan to go near Chloe. He and Ned called the paramedics and kept a fretful Stefan at bay. After an examination at GH, Tony told them all that Chloe had suffered a mild concussion, but because of her accident from last year, they wanted to keep her overnight for observation. Ned was the first to see Chloe, and he managed to make her laugh. When Jax came in, she thanked him for his concern and reiterated her plan to leave town. She didn't blame Stefan for the fall, but she said it was just another reason for her to get away. Stefan slipped in when everyone had gone and whispered an apology to a sleeping Chloe. He told her how much he loved her and revealed how sorry he was for continuously causing her pain. Sonny berated Carly for using her old manipulative ways to try and get Angel in trouble. Carly maintained -- against Mike's advice -- that Angel was bad news and that she was trying to do Sonny harm. In separate questioning, both Sonny and Angel denied any romantic element in their relationship, though in her interrogation, Carly insisted that Angel was in love with Sonny. Mac received the fingerprint matches off the picture of Michael that was found in Sorel's room. He told Taggert that the murderer's motive might have stemmed from the bond between parent and child. He and Taggert listened as Sonny and Carly conversed in the interrogation room. Sonny knew they were there and tried to stifle her words, but Carly yelled that she would do anything to protect her family and told Sonny that he had no idea how far she would go. After smashing a tart on Helena's suit to stall her from going to her room, Gia completed her plan by thanking Helena for the change in Lucky. Helena feigned ignorance, and Gia declared that Lucky was clearly under some strange influence that had allowed him to forget about Elizabeth. Gia claimed to be grateful because now she and Lucky were together instead. Helena mused that Gia seemed to have recovered from her affair with Nikolas rather quickly. Unable to stall Helena any longer, Gia called Liz to warn her that her cover was about to be blown. Meanwhile, Liz was caught red-handed by Stavros, who demanded to know why she was in Helena's room. Liz hemmed and hawed and finally asked Stavros who he was and why he was there. He claimed to be a business associate of Helena's and said he was expected. Liz told him that when she and Nikolas were there the other day, she lost a ring that he had given her. Stavros helped her look for it, and Liz conveniently 'found' it after slipping it out of her purse. When Helena showed up, she tried to repeat her lie, but Stavros saved her by reminding her that Nikolas was waiting. Later, Liz and Gia met to discuss their plot to break into Helena's room again. Gia was worried about having left Lucky alone for such a long time. Unbeknownst to her, he had previously gone out on the window ledge and contemplated jumping, but when she and Liz entered the room, he was asleep on the bed. Liz convinced Gia to let her stay with Lucky because she needed to spend some time helping him remember his love for her. Helena was more concerned with Jax's threat to her than she was with Liz and Gia. She had figured out a way to get rid of Stefan and Jax at the same time. She told Stavros that when he destroyed Stefan, he was to make it seem as though Jax was to blame. Back in his hotel room, Jax called out to Kristina, a young woman who was very happy to see him. She told him that she was tired of being kept under lock and key and that she wanted out. He insisted that it wasn't safe for her yet, though he understood her impatience. She stared at the copy of Alexis' necklace and said she was ready to face whatever came next.

    Preview: Gia takes sweet revenge against Helena. Recap: Taggert was thrilled to have a new angle with which to pursue Sonny for his crimes. Though Sonny believed that Carly's claims were worthless, Taggert thought that Angel's situation was a little suspicious. When he found airline tickets for Sonny and Angel for a trip to Greece -- dated on the same day that Sorel kidnapped Carly -- his suspicions grew. He decided to make a formal inquiry and took Angel and Sonny to the PCPD. Still angry over Sonny's relationship with Angel, Carly stuck to her guns and signed a statement against Angel. She called Mike, who rushed to the station and urged her to reconsider the charges. He reminded her that she risked alienating Sonny again once he found out. Carly finally saw the wisdom in Mike's advice and was prepared to retract her statement when Taggert brought in Sonny and Angel. Stavros found Helena in a pensive mood as she reminisced about Mikkos. Helena expressed her confusion over people who fancied themselves in love when true love didn't really exist. She had proved when she killed Mikkos' mistress -- and Alexis' mother -- that love could definitely die. She felt that she had proved it again by removing Lucky's memories of Liz. Helena declared that the only real attraction was to power and to men who could provide dangerous energy. Sensing that she was referring to Jax, Stavros warned her not to let her desires override her common sense. He advised her to be the predator and not the prey. Jax made a call to his mysterious female friend, who expressed her impatience at being kept in the dark for so long. She fingered a replica of Alexis' mother's necklace as she spoke and asked Jax when she could come out of hiding. He replied that she could do so just as soon as he felt that it was safe for her. Gia stalled Lucky's amorous intentions as they sat in her hotel room. She told him that she wanted to set the mood by buying a special bottle of wine. Once away, she called Liz and asked for a meeting. Even though she didn't believe that Liz was worthy of Lucky, Gia felt that Liz was the only one who could truly save him. Liz asked Gia to cover for her while she searched Helena's room for something that would help Lucky. When Gia saw Helena at the Grille, she delayed her by declaring her intention to sue the Cassadines. Helena laughed at the notion and prepared to walk away, but Gia smashed a tart on her suit to distract her. In Helena's room, Liz was triumphant when she found the Ice Princess, but her triumph turned to terror when Stavros entered the room. Alexis met Jax at the PC Grille per his request and was surprised when he pumped her for information about the Ice Princess. Chloe and Ned arrived before she could tell him anything, and there was an awkward moment as the former friends came face to face. Citing the fact that they were all adults, Chloe sat down next to Jax. Chloe stunned them all with the announcement that she had decided to move back to Milan to make a fresh start. A lurking Stefan overheard her statement and asked for a moment of her time. On the terrace, Stefan begged her not to leave town because of him. He felt that she was being pressured into believing that he was bad for her. Chloe laughed at his arrogance and told him that he had ruined whatever chance they might have had with all of his lies. She recounted the tale of the girl he'd killed in Greece, and he was astounded that she knew about it since only Stavros and his mother were aware of the story. Chloe dismissed it and tried to get away from him. He grabbed her arm, and in an effort to pull away, Chloe fell and hit her head against the railing.

    Preview: Taggert finds Sonny at the lake house. Recap: Carly demanded that Taggert arrest Angel for her role in kidnapping Carly and for trying to hurt Sonny. Taggert expressed his skepticism about Carly's claim, but when she was willing to sign a statement, he took her a little more seriously. He promised to investigate her allegations. At the lake house, Angel was happily surprised to see Sonny standing in the doorway. She informed him of Carly's visit and told him about Carly's accusations concerning Angel's feelings for Sonny. She confessed that Carly wasn't far off the mark, but Sonny reminded her that he wouldn't betray his marriage vows. Angel figured out that Sonny still loved Carly, and he confessed that he did. He didn't think it was a reason to forgive her or to go back to her, though. Angel believed that it gave them a chance, and she asked Sonny to consider staying with her again so that they could figure out what their next step should be. Before he could answer, Sonny spied Taggert and another officer standing in the open doorway. Elizabeth and Nikolas were relieved to discover that a cat-suit-clad Jax was the third party in Helena's room. Jax had overheard them discussing the Ice Princess and he offered to help them find it. Liz jumped at the offer, but Nikolas was more wary. He maintained his guise of having returned to the Cassadine fold and told Jax that he had misunderstood everything. Helena joined the party and coolly asked why they were all playing dress up without her. Liz bravely told Helena that she had been searching the room for a way to help Lucky when Nikolas caught her. The two put on a worthy performance and left. Alone with Helena, Jax renewed his threat to destroy her if she didn't stay away from Alexis. Later, Jax ran into Liz at the PC Grille and gave her a clue about the Ice Princess' whereabouts. He then made a mysterious call and commanded someone to meet him at the Grille immediately. Gia kissed Lucky in order to steal the car keys from him. She ran from the car, and he chased after her, but she threw the keys into the river. She questioned his apparent need to endanger his life, and he told her that he would no longer allow anyone to tell him what to do. Further questioning made Gia realize that Helena had done something to make Lucky forget his love for Liz. She took him back to her hotel room and told him that she was going to take care of him. At GH, Roy discerned that Mac was going to question Melissa once he was done talking to Alan. Roy tried to get Melissa to leave with him immediately, but she didn't feel the timing was right. Just as Roy feared, Mac came over and asked Melissa about her dealings with Sorel. Roy prevented her from answering any questions, and a frustrated Mac turned to Alan for answers. Alan calmly covered for Melissa and told Mac that once he had a court order, Alan would be happy to provide him with any hospital documents that pertained to Sorel. Melissa thanked Alan for covering for her, and he replied that he didn't want Sorel ruining any more lives.

    Preview: Sonny re-hires Alexis as his attorney. Recap: Alexis walked into Sonny's office as Mac and Taggert were in the midst of interrogating him. She commanded them to leave and told them that she was Sonny's attorney of record and anything they needed to say they could funnel through her. When they left, Sonny asked Alexis when she had decided to be his lawyer again. Alexis told him that while she didn't agree with all of his business practices, she now had a better understanding of his world and was willing to deal with it. She asked Sonny if he would rehire her and was stunned when he said no. He asserted that he would rather have her friendship than have their business dealings interfere with their friendship. She assured him that it would no longer be a problem and told him that she needed to work with him to distract herself from her life. Sonny agreed to take her on again, much to her relief. Carly stormed into the lake house and accused Angel of plotting to take Sonny away from her. Angel defended her actions and said that Carly had destroyed Sonny's life, while Angel had saved it. Carly believed that the only thing Angel was saving was Sonny for herself. The two women traded barbs about their respective unsuitability as Sonny's chosen companion. When Carly spied the angel she had given Sonny, she deduced that Angel had stolen it. She hurled it against the wall and warned Angel that she would never have Sonny. Carly rushed to the police station and interrupted Mac and Taggert's conversation about the Sorel investigation. She told them that she wanted Angel arrested immediately. Unbeknownst to her, Sonny went to the lake house to visit Angel right after she left. Gia was stunned when Lucky pulled her into a kiss. When she finally broke away, she asked him why he had kissed her. Lucky claimed that his feelings for Liz were dead, and he was ready to revamp his life. He wanted to forget about his family, Nikolas, and Liz and just concentrate on having a good time. He told Gia about a drag race that he planned on entering, and she worried that he was trying to get himself killed -- especially since he was racing with Nikolas' Jaguar. Just before the race started, Gia hopped into the car and told Lucky that he wasn't going anywhere without her. Jax attempted to search Helena's hotel room for clues, but his search came to a halt when Helena returned. He hid on the terrace as Stefan soon followed Helena into the room. He confronted his mother about her plot to drive him crazy and told her that no matter what she did, she wouldn't succeed. Helena claimed genuine ignorance until she realized that Stavros was behind the scheme. Then she laughed gleefully and told Stefan that he would definitely be destroyed, but it wouldn't be at her hands. Stefan left when Helena received a call from Nikolas. Stavros secretly watched Liz and Nikolas talking at the PC Grille. He had the host arrange a private table for him where he could watch his son undetected. Chloe joined him for dinner and questioned the way he constantly hid when a Cassadine was present. She told him that Stefan had no memory of dealing with him, and yet he seemed to know everything about Stefan's life. Stavros as Lucien claimed that he had thoroughly researched Stefan's past. He told her a story of Stefan inadvertently killing a peasant girl in Greece and never paying for the crime. Chloe told him that she had no interest in hearing about Stefan or Lucien's apparent vendetta. Nikolas and Liz met to discuss their plan to steal the Ice Princess from Helena. Nikolas was determined to search Helena's room himself, but Liz reminded him that he was the only person who could distract Helena. She figured that while he kept his grandmother away, she would search the room. Nikolas reluctantly agreed to the plan and called Helena to ask her to meet him for dinner. Dressed as a maid, Liz snuck into Helena's hotel room and looked around. Meanwhile, at the Grille, Nikolas was startled when his grandmother had to bow out of dinner early to take care of business. He rushed to the hotel and told Liz that they had to get out of there immediately. Just then, they heard noises coming from the hallway.

    Preview: Lucky pulls Gia into a passionate kiss. Recap: Carly was furious to learn that Sonny had spent time at the lake house with Angel. She accused him of betraying her and breaking their marriage vows, but Sonny reminded her that she had been the one to destroy their marriage. Carly reeled when he casually revealed that he had hid in Angel's bedroom when she went to the lake house and spoke of her love for him. He told her that their marriage was over and she had to learn to live with it. Enraged, Carly said there was no way she would allow Angel to have him. Angel was overwhelmed by memories of her father, and she even had a vision of Sorel standing in her house. He wondered how she could be so calm after what she had done to him. Angry with herself for not being able to forget him, Angel yelled at the vision and he disappeared. She went to the police station with the intent of claiming Sorel's body so that she could bury him. While there, Angel overheard Taggert and Mac discussing their plan to nail Sonny for Sorel's murder. Angel immediately called Sonny to warn him. Back at the lake house, she finished packing away her childhood mementos and prepared to leave. When she opened the door, a fuming Carly was waiting on the other side. Edward forced the current police captain out of the PCPD because he preferred to have Mac in charge. Mac told him that he didn't necessarily want the position, but Taggert said that the department desperately needed his leadership. Mac agreed to resume his position as Port Charles Police Commissioner, and his first act of duty would be to head up the Sorel murder investigation. To that end, he and Taggert went to Sonny's office to question him about his whereabouts on the night that Sorel was killed. Gia headed to Wyndemere to let Stefan and Alexis know that she planned on suing the Cassadine family as Lucien/Stavros had suggested. Stefan was more concerned with the brooch she wore. He asked to see it, and he told Alexis that it was a Cassadine family pendant. Stavros listened from a hidden corridor as Stefan deduced that Helena had given Gia the brooch. Gia wouldn't confirm or deny where she had received it; she simply reiterated her intent to destroy the Cassadines as they had attempted to destroy her. When she left, Alexis advised Stefan not to let Helena get to him. She reminded him that their main focus needed to be getting Nikolas away from her. Elizabeth was devastated when Lucky told her that he didn't love her anymore. No matter what she did to try and break through to him, he rejected her. Nikolas came in and Lucky told him that he was welcome to have Liz because he didn't want her. They tried to keep Lucky contained in the house, but he decked Nikolas and ran out. Liz expressed her anger at Nikolas for bringing Helena to Lucky in the first place. He felt that it was the only real way for them to see how she controlled him, and Liz admitted that she had learned the technique. She told him that Helena used a large diamond and Nikolas immediately concluded that it was the Ice Princess. He and Liz schemed on the best way to steal it from Helena. Helena was thrilled to receive a visit from Jax at her hotel room. He casually told her that he had raided several of her companies and would continue to devastate her if she didn't back off of Alexis. Helena was annoyed that he still cared about "the little mouse" and told Jax that she could think of a better way for him to spend his energy. Amused, Jax reinforced his threat before leaving. Helena later told Stavros that Jax might cause them a few problems, but he was unconcerned. Down at the docks, Lucky was tortured by memories of Helena's brainwashing and visions of Liz. He shouted out in frustration, but clammed up when Gia came along. She was relieved to see him and gratified to hear that he had broken up with Liz. He suggested that she forget about Nikolas in the same manner. When she said that it was hard to forget Nikolas, Lucky theorized that he had a way to help. Then he pulled her into a passionate kiss.

    Preview: Stavros invades Stefan's dreams. Recap: Nikolas took Helena to see Lucky after telling her that he had kidnapped his brother. Helena commanded Lucky to reveal his true kidnapper, while Elizabeth hid in the closet and listened fearfully. Nikolas breathed a sigh of relief when Lucky declared that his brother had kidnapped him. Helena was pleasantly surprised by the news, and Nikolas demanded that she reward him by making Lucky forget his love for Liz. Nikolas saw Liz hiding and subtly acknowledged her. They both knew that the only way to free Lucky was to find out how Helena controlled him. Helena told Nikolas to leave, and then she took out the Ice Princess. Holding it out to Lucky, she forced him to tell her all of his memories of Liz, and she erased them one by one. When Helena left, Liz ran to Lucky, who looked at her as though he had never seen her before. Stavros loomed over a sleeping Stefan and whispered that he would always take everything that his little brother wanted, and he would always be the prince. Stefan woke up thinking he had been in the midst of a terrible nightmare. The nightmare continued when he saw a smashed model ship on the floor. When Alexis came in, he reminded her of the ship he had as a child that Stavros destroyed. He confided to his sister that he was feeling Stavros' presence more and more as of late. Alexis shrugged it all off to Helena's influence. After terrorizing Stefan, Stavros visited Gia with much friendlier intentions. He apologized again for missing the auction, and Gia thanked him for his concern. To further insure forgiveness, he gifted her with a diamond pendant. Gia liked it, but she became wistful because it reminded her of something that Nikolas might have given her. When she berated the Cassadines for making him crazy, Stavros suggested that she sue him. She wasn't certain that she had grounds until he reminded her that she had turned down modeling jobs in favor of being with Nikolas. Her wheels started spinning when Stavros told her that she could sue for lost wages. Jax showed up at the lake house and happily surprised Angel. She ran into his arms and the two reminisced about their time together in Monaco. Jax wondered where her old sparkle and fire had gone, and she told him about her father's murder. She neglected to mention her connection to Sonny. Jax told her that she could count on him for whatever she needed. As they shared more memories, Angel cryptically asked how "she" was doing, and Jax replied that the mystery woman was adjusting to her current situation. Carly was stunned when Sonny told her that he had known before she did that Angel was Sorel's daughter. Carly shared her belief that Angel was trying to destroy Sonny by getting close to her. Sonny tried to deflect Carly's attention from Angel, but Carly continued to rant about her manipulations. Finally, Sonny very coldly told Carly about being stabbed by Sorel and rescued by Angel. Her mouth fell open in shock when he told her that while she was frantically looking for him, he was recuperating at the lake house with Angel.

    Preview: Nikolas takes Helena to see Lucky. Recap: Sonny demanded that Jax tell him what he had found out about Brenda. Jax was reluctant to say anything until Sonny reminded him that he had helped Jax's brother leave the country, and he was calling in his owed favor. Jax finally admitted that the woman he'd thought was Brenda turned out to be a look-alike. He told Sonny that everyone who loved Brenda simply had to accept that she was gone for good. Ned showed up and wanted the real story once Sonny left. Sonny listened outside of the door as Jax reiterated to Ned that Brenda was gone. Jax and Ned discussed Alexis, and Jax was surprised to learn that his friends had uncoupled. Ned believed the breakup had more to do with the Cassadines than it did with him. Angel went to Sonny to tell him about Sorel's death, and Sonny comforted her when she started to cry. She also wanted to warn him that Carly knew that she was Sorel's daughter, but didn't know about their time together at the lake house. Sonny promised her that he would take care of everything and told her to contact him if she needed anything. Carly accused Angel of working undercover for Sorel once she found out that Angel was his daughter. Roy and Melissa attempted to make her understand that Angel's intentions weren't bad, but Carly believed that Angel was capable of killing Sonny. She rushed to warn him and was surprised when he assured her that he knew Angel would never hurt him. Alone, he toasted Sorel's demise with a dram of brandy and wished his enemy a long life in hell with the devil. Angel packed up memorabilia from her childhood and cried over the loss of her father. A knock at the door revealed a smiling Jax. Angel rushed into his arms with a cry of joy. In the chapel, Melissa prayed for peace and forgiveness. Roy reminded her that he was there for her if she needed him. She took out the photos that Sorel's man had given her and was horrified to realize that Michael's picture was missing. Taggert admitted to Tony that he was surprised by Angel's seemingly cool reaction to her father's murder. Tony told him that Angel was probably in shock, but Taggert was clearly suspicious. One of his officers found a photo of Michael, and Taggert planned to run it through forensics for fingerprints. Elizabeth and Nikolas searched the Cassadine yacht for the key to Lucky's brainwashing. When Nikolas heard Helena arrive, he pulled Liz into a kiss. Flustered, Liz quickly left, but Helena expressed her surprise that Nikolas and Liz had grown so close. Nikolas told her that Liz was still resistant because of her love for Lucky. He wanted Helena to give him the means to program Liz to love him. Helena didn't trust his reason for wanting the information, and Nikolas angrily said that he would prove to her once and for all that he had returned to the family. Liz arrived at the safe house just as Lucky was ready to break something in frustration at being locked up. He had been hearing Helena's voice in his head and felt that if he didn't get out of there, he was going to go crazy. Liz urged him to remain calm because the house was the only place that he was safe, and she didn't want him to leave. Lucky told her that he believed Nikolas was the mystery person who was helping them. While Liz didn't deny it, she told Lucky to focus on the fact that she had kidnapped him. She worried that he would accidentally tell Helena about Nikolas and put them all in danger. They heard voices outside, and Liz hid in the closet just as Helena and Nikolas came in. Helena asked Lucky if Nikolas had been the one to kidnap him as he had claimed.

    Preview: Carly finally learns the truth about Angel. Recap:During a routine checkup, Tony discovered that Sorel was dead in his hospital bed. He called in Amy and another nurse to ask them how Sorel's death could have gone undetected. Both nurses said that Sorel's monitors at the front desk had remained normal and had never indicated that he had died. Tony paged Alan, who reacted with remarkable calm at the news of the crime lord's death. He told Tony to simply have Sorel taken to the morgue and be done with it. Upon further investigation, however, Tony realized that Sorel's respirator had been unplugged and his heart monitor alarm had been disabled with a tongue depressor. He suggested that they call the police because it appeared that Sorel had been murdered. Across the hall, Zander's nurse checked in on him and found him sitting on the floor. He told her that he had gotten out of bed to walk around the room and didn't have the energy to get back into bed. She noticed that his alarm had been disengaged with a tongue depressor and asked where he had learned to do that. Zander told her that the less she knew, the better. Taggert arrived on the scene and initially had as blase a reaction as Alan had to Sorel's death. But when Tony showed him all of the evidence, Taggert declared that Sorel's room was officially a crime scene. He questioned the guard, who said that one moment he had been guarding the room, and the next thing he knew, he woke up to see Tony standing over him. Realizing that the guard's coffee might have been drugged, Taggert called in forensics. Roy found Melissa praying for forgiveness in the hospital chapel. Having been lurking outside of Sorel's room when Taggert announced Sorel's death, Roy told Melissa that Sorel was no longer a threat to anyone. She was stunned to hear that Sorel had been murdered and told Roy that she felt as though his death was her fault. Roy suggested that they take a trip out of town to cleanse their minds of Sorel and their pasts. Melissa thought it was a good idea, but a bad time to leave. Sonny entered his office and saw that Carly was asleep in his chair. He took a moment to watch her sleep and then gently woke her. Carly told him that she had slept there because she needed to see him after the horrible night she had. She was terrified that something was going to happen to Michael and was angry with Sonny for not telling her how he planned to keep her son safe. She also informed him of her plan to work with Skye against Angel. Sonny berated her for trusting Skye and for not trusting him to keep Michael safe. When he told her that she didn't understand the steps he had to take, she yelled that she had taken steps of her own to protect Michael, and she didn't need him after all. Suspicious, Sonny asked her what she had done, but Carly walked out without telling him. Edward invited Jax to breakfast at the mansion so that they could discuss booting Skye out of ELQ. An eavesdropping Skye hurried upstairs to change, and when she and Jax were introduced, she was wearing a sexy dress. Jax offered to buy Skye's ELQ stock so that he would have even more control, and Edward huffed over that plan. The meeting was interrupted when Sonny came in. He and Jax coldly greeted each other before Sonny took Skye onto the terrace. He warned her to stay away from Carly, and he told A.J. that if he didn't back off, he would suffer the consequences. Genuinely afraid, Skye wondered if the scheme should continue, and A.J. told her that she was off the hook because he didn't want her tangling with Sonny. When Edward received a call about Sorel's death, Monica and A.J. eyed each other warily. At the hospital, Taggert questioned Zander about his possible role in Sorel's death. The nurse didn't reveal that Zander's alarm had been disabled in the same manner as Sorel's. Zander coolly lied that he had been sedated, and he was shocked when Alan chimed in and said that he had given Zander the medicine. Alone, Alan told Zander that no one was going to pay for Sorel's death, since the only thing that mattered was that Emily was finally safe. Carly ran into Roy and Melissa at GH and expressed her extreme gratitude that Sorel was dead. Having received a call, Angel was there as well, and she yelled at Carly for being insensitive. Carly reeled when Taggert told her that Angel was Sorel's daughter. She called Angel a lying piece of trash for keeping such a hateful secret. Jax returned to his hotel room to find Sonny calmly drinking a dram of whiskey on the sofa. The two adversaries circled each other like lions until Sonny told Jax that he wanted answers, and he wanted them immediately.

    Preview: Sorel cringes in fear when one of his enemies arrived. Recap: Stefan and Jax faced off over Chloe, and both insisted that the other wasn't good for her. Alexis interrupted their fight, and Stefan left to find Chloe. Alexis tried to tell Jax that she believed her brother had changed and truly did love Chloe, but Jax felt that there wasn't enough change in the world to make Stefan worthy of her. Jax also confided that he had realized while searching for Brenda that the love he had for Chloe wasn't as strong as it should have been, and he wanted more for her than half a heart. Alexis told Jax how much she had missed him, and the two recemented their bond. At his Penthouse, Jax fingered Alexis' necklace and then called out for someone named Kristina. A confused and hurt Chloe took comfort with "Lucien," who told her that neither Jax nor Stefan deserved her. She asked him if he would ever leave the woman he loved, and he intently replied that not even death would keep him away from someone he loved. Chloe agreed with him and said that she wanted someone to care for her like that. Stavros suggested that the next time she saw Stefan, she should tell him that he wasn't good enough for her. He claimed to have researched Stefan's past and said that measuring up to his family -- particularly his brother, Stavros -- had always been an obsession with Stefan. When Stefan arrived, Stavros melted into the shadows to watch what happened. Stefan begged Chloe for another chance to prove his love to her, and Chloe coldly told him that he wasn't good enough to be with her. Crushed, Stefan allowed her to walk away. Needing to make sure that Sorel wasn't a threat to her and Michael, Carly went to the hospital to see him and instead ran into Melissa. Melissa warned Carly of Sorel's intent to kill Michael and showed her the pictures that Sorel's man had of his targets. Panicked, Carly called Letitia in Martinique to alert her to the latest threat. Mike came into the ER with an injured hand and tried to calm Carly down as A.J. watched from the shadows. Though Carly told Mike that she would leave, her fears got the best of her, and she ran back toward Sorel's room. Zander stood over Sorel's bed and started to tie a knot in Sorel's respirator tube. Alan and Sonny arrived in time to pull Zander away, even though Zander begged them to let him kill their enemy. Sonny gave Zander a much-needed lesson on restraint. He told Zander to never dirty his own hands and to think before he acted. He promised the vengeful teen that the threat Sorel caused would soon cease to exist. After delivering his own warning of vengeance to Sorel, Alan installed an alarm on Zander's bed to make sure that he didn't make another attempt on Sorel's life. Alone, Zander disarmed the alarm and made his way across the hall. Melissa neutralized Sorel's injured man by sedating him before he could get word to Sorel that he had failed in his mission. She then went to Sorel's room and trembled with rage as she reminded him of the way her brother had died. She turned off his respirator and told him that the injuries he'd caused her brother had basically caused him to suffocate in his own body. She felt that Sorel deserved nothing less than to die the same way. Monica came in and demanded that Melissa leave. Rather than help Sorel, Monica coldly informed him that she intended to make sure he never hurt her daughter or anyone else again. Melissa went into the bathroom, splashed cold water on her face, then pulled on surgical gloves as she headed out. Roy and Angel traded stories of their encounters with Sorel, and Angel admitted that while she had once loved her father, his latest actions were unforgivable. She told Roy that Sorel wouldn't stop until he had killed everyone that he believed had wronged him. Roy gave Angel his condolences for her loss, and Angel assured him that she had long ago put her husband Donny to rest. Roy corrected her and said that he was sorry for the loss of her father. Then he told her that he had something to take care of and left her. Angel pulled off the pearl necklace that her father had given her and threw it to the ground. At the hospital, Roy took a pair of surgical gloves from the closet and headed for Sorel's room. As Sonny left the hospital, he passed one of his men and gave him a nod. The man went into a hospital storage room, changed into medical scrubs, and went to Sorel's room. Outside of Sorel's room, his police guard nodded off to sleep after a nurse came in to make sure that Sorel was OK. Finally sleeping peacefully, Sorel lay motionless in his bed. He woke up when his room door opened and his eyes widened in fear as a shadowy figure loomed over him.

    Preview: Zander takes matters into his own hands with Sorel. Recap: Chloe was amazed to see Jax standing in front of her casually asking how she had been. Infuriated by his nonchalant attitude, she slapped him across the face. She asked him if he had been with Brenda, and he declared that he had been sent on a wild goose chase. Chloe wanted to know why he had written her such a terribly abrupt goodbye letter, and Jax claimed that he had never written a letter at all. He believed that Stefan had been the one to hire the Brenda look-alike, as well as the one who had the letter written in order to keep Chloe in his clutches. Stefan appeared and told Jax to keep out of his business. Chloe demanded the truth, and Stefan admitted that Jax's claims were accurate. Disgusted with them both, Chloe turned down Stefan's proposal and told Jax that she wanted nothing more to do with him either. Stefan and Jax confronted each other once she had gone, and Stefan warned Jax that Chloe belonged to him, and he wasn't going to let her go. Bobbie called Luke's apartment, desperate to make sure that he was all right and in need of his help. She couldn't reach him, but Carly responded to Bobbie's call and came to the brownstone. Bobbie handed her a threatening letter from Sorel saying that he planned on killing Michael before he killed her. Carly immediately went to Sonny and demanded to know what he was going to do about the threat. Sonny, who had just discussed with Benny his plan to eliminate Sorel, told Carly that he had everything under control. He refused to give her any details, even when she begged to know how he planned to keep them safe. A.J. overheard the conversation, and when Sonny left, he confronted Carly about putting their son in danger by marrying Sonny. Carly told A.J. to back off and promised that she would make sure Michael was safe one way or another. At GH, a patient was brought in with severe injuries. When Melissa went to tend to him, she noticed that pictures had fallen out of his jacket. The pictures were of Carly, Michael, Zander, and Emily. She showed them to Roy, and they surmised that the man must have been one of Sorel's henchmen, and the pictures were his "hit list." Roy commanded Melissa to have another nurse treat the man, but when no one was available, she took care of him herself. She asked him to tell her who he was working for, and he said that he had been paid very well to do his job. Meanwhile, Roy ran into Taggert at Luke's and demanded that the detective protect the potential murder victims. Claiming to be Lucien Cane once again, Stavros approached Elton at Luke's and asked if he could help him get in touch with Laura. Elton was impressed with Stavros' rich appearance and fine taste in wine. He made no bones about flirting with Stavros, but said that he didn't have Laura's cell phone number with him. He told Stavros to call the office, and he would direct him to Laura's voice mail. Angel visited her father in the hopes that Sorel was finally willing to make amends. Sorel claimed that he had nothing to do with her husband Donny's death, and he wanted her forgiveness. Angel said that she would forgive him if he spared Sonny, and she begged for his rival's safety. Sorel claimed that she was a traitorous daughter, and he no longer considered her his family. When he started to choke and asked her to call a nurse, she watched him with tears rolling down her cheeks. The nurse came before Angel could call her, and Angel left. She went to Luke's, where Roy finally realized that she was Sorel's daughter. Angel told him that Sorel had murder on his mind and had to be stopped. Alan received a call from Emily's rehab center informing him that she had been attacked in her room. Apparently, someone had tried to kill her, but another man came in and stopped him in time. When Alan relayed the news to the family, they all realized that Sorel was behind the attack. Alan told Monica to arrange to have Emily moved while he went to the hospital. Skye offered to help Monica and was hurt by her stepmother's scornful refusal. Skye retaliated by declaring that as much as she didn't like Rae, she was clearly ten times the woman and mother that Monica was. Alan went to see Zander to make sure that he hadn't been hurt. Zander immediately jumped to the conclusion that something had happened to Emily. Alan wouldn't tell Zander what had happened, but assured him that he was taking measures to keep Emily safe. In the hallway, Alan ran into Sonny and accused him of causing more trouble for the teens. Sonny shocked him by telling him that one of his men had been the one to save Emily. He told Alan that in spite of his beliefs, he would never let anything else happen to Zander or Emily. Later, Zander made his way to Sorel's bedside and declared that he would never have the opportunity to hurt Emily again. He picked up Sorel's breathing tube and tied it into a knot.

    Preview: Chloe and Jax come face to face again. Recap: Luke paid Bobbie a surprise visit, and he stunned her with his odd behavior. She assumed that he had been drinking until he mentioned that he needed to visit their dead Aunt Ruby. Realizing that something strange was going on, Bobbie tried to calm him down. Taggert burst into the brownstone looking for Luke, and Bobbie lied that she hadn't seen him. Unfortunately, Luke popped out of his hiding place and continued ranting and raving. Bobbie managed to convince Taggert not to arrest Luke and to let her take care of him. She was relieved when Tony showed up, and she asked him to examine Luke to see if there was something medically wrong with him. When Luke saw Tony, he collapsed in his ex-brother-in-law's arms and told him that Helena had gotten to him. Tony figured out that Helena must have given Luke some kind of toxin, and he told Bobbie to bring Luke to the hospital immediately. After seeing Tony out, Bobbie was dismayed to find that Luke had disappeared. Jax's appearance at the Cassadine charity auction turned the sedate event into a circus. Alexis welcomed him back to town, but Edward immediately approached Jax about voting on his side in the ELQ board meeting. Ned brushed his grandfather aside and asked Jax if he had found Brenda. Jax claimed that he had no new information about Brenda, and he refused to talk about her. He was very vague with both Alexis and Ned about his travels and his sudden return. His main concern was getting to Chloe and making sure that she was okay. They filled him in on her escapade with Stefan, and Jax was shocked to learn that she and the Cassadine scion had grown close. At the Quartermaine mansion, Skye pumped A.J. for information on Jax. She was charmed by his good looks and shrewd demeanor. A.J. warned her that Jax had the sole ability to destroy her position at ELQ. Skye didn't see that as a problem, just a challenge she was more than willing to overcome. Ned and Alexis discussed Jax's return, and he made a snide comment about his casual ability to come to town after leaving Chloe high and dry. Recognizing the subtle jab at her, Alexis apologized again for leaving Ned at the altar. She said that she wished she could explain herself to him, but she just didn't feel able. Ned declared that if she was ever ready to be truthful with him, she knew how to find him. Later, unseen hands cradled yet another copy of Alexis' mother's necklace. Out in the wilderness, Melissa used a banana to woo the bear from their chocolate bars, and the bear ultimately rambled off. Roy and Melissa celebrated their narrow escape with a kiss and a promise to go camping again in the future. A fire alarm in the stables prevented Stefan from getting an answer to his marriage proposal to Chloe. Once Stefan was gone, Stavros emerged from the shadows. Pretending to be Lucien Cane, he told Chloe that he was looking for Stefan. He left her with a message to remind Stefan of karikos, which he claimed was a business deal that they had worked on. When Stefan returned, Chloe relayed the message, and a horrified Stefan revealed that karikos was a Greek word for worthless that Stavros used to call him as a child. Choosing to believe that Chloe simply misheard the name, he pressed her to answer his proposal. Chloe said that she needed more time, but promised to think about it. After Stefan left, Chloe was reflecting on her situation when Jax appeared in front of her.

    Preview:Stefan propose marriage to Chloe. Recap:At the auction house, Luke continued his drunken rant against Nikolas. He told Helena and all assembled that Nikolas was plotting against the Cassadines and planned to bring the family down. Nikolas responded by punching Luke out. Helena finally ordered Mac and Taggert to remove Luke from the auction even as Luke continued to lash out. Alexis offered to represent Luke in court and asked to know the truth about Nikolas and Helena. Luke declined her offer and remained unclear about Nikolas and Helena's association. Taggert handcuffed him to the wall and went to get a squad car to take Luke to the police station. Luke's inner voice urged him to get away before he ruined everything. When Taggert returned, Luke was gone. Melissa and Roy drew closer together after they released the memories of their painful pasts. Roy thanked her for making him feel good about himself for the first time in years. He kissed her, but she pulled away after a few moments. She suggested that they take things slowly, and he agreed. Their romantic evening was interrupted when a bear invaded the campsite. Stefan approached Nikolas and offered him support if Luke's claim was true. Nikolas scorned his uncle and said that Luke lied. Nikolas still wanted nothing to do with Stefan and publicly humiliated him. A rejected and dejected Stefan left the auction house and Chloe followed him outside. Seeing his pain, Chloe sat with him and took him in her arms. She suggested that it was time that he leave the Cassadines behind once and for all. Stefan told her that the only way he could do that was if she was by his side. Declaring his love for her, Stefan proposed marriage while a hidden Stavros eavesdropped on the conversation. Helena tried to reassure Stavros that Nikolas was on their side, but Stavros didn't buy it. He told his mother that she was a fool if she believed that Nikolas suddenly loved her after having been raised his whole life to hate her. He told her that he would take care of the situation with Nikolas and ensure his son's loyalty through his own means. Hoping that Luke's claim was true, Gia interrupted Nikolas' conversation with Liz to confirm her belief. He denied that he was secretly plotting against the Cassadines and told Gia that she was delusional. Gia begged him to tell her the truth and said she would stand by him no matter what. He tried to hide his pain as he told her that she didn't matter to him anymore and asked her to leave him alone. Struggling to contain her emotions, Gia returned to the auction and gave a command performance as an announcer. During the auction, Alexis bid on an Asian statue, much to Helena's surprise. Ned stopped Edward's attempt to bid against her because he saw how much Alexis wanted the statue. Once she had it in her possession, Alexis approached Helena and reminded her how much she had loved the statue as a child. As Helena watched, Alexis smashed the statue to bits and declared that she would do the same thing to Helena if she continued to try and hurt anyone she cared about. Monica and Alan battled at the auction because of her coldness towards Skye. When Monica bid on a beautiful bracelet, Alan shocked her by bidding against her and buying the bracelet for Skye. He warned Monica that he wouldn't stand for her ignoring his daughter, and he presented the bracelet to a delighted Skye. Edward bid on a ring for Lila, and it seemed that he had won it, when a voice called from the back of the room with a million dollar bid. Everyone's mouth fell open when they saw Jax standing in the doorway.

    Preview:Stefan and Chloe kiss passionately. Recap:With the help of his inner conscience, Luke feigned a seduction of Helena. He tried to get answers about where she had Lucky stashed and she told him that she would tell him for a kiss. As his inner voice told him to, Luke wrapped Helena's scarf around her neck and pulled tightly as he kissed her. Helena was lost in this strange passion when Stavros stormed in and chastised his mother for giving in to her base urges. Telling him that he was being tedious, Helena allowed him a moment alone with Luke to get answers about Nikolas. Stavros questioned Luke about Nikolas's intention to rejoin the Cassadine clan. He believed that Nikolas was trying to trick them and wanted Luke to confirm. Though a poisoned Luke almost gave the game away, his inner voice managed to break through enough to throw Stavros off the track. Lucky was stunned to see that Liz was his kidnapper. In order to keep him safe from Helena, Liz had asked Sonny's men to have Lucky put in a safehouse. She revealed that someone else was helping her as well, but she wouldn't tell him who. Lucky thought that was just as well since he feared that he would inadvertently spill the information to Helena. Moved by this extreme show of love, Lucky gathered Liz close in a kiss. On the premise of retrieving her mail, Gia let herself into the cottage. As she sadly stared at a picture of her and Nikolas, she was startled when Nikolas came in. He was surprised to hear that Gia was dating and wanted to know more about her suitor. Gia wouldn't tell him very much other than to say that the man was treating her better than Nikolas ever had. While rifling through papers, Nikolas found a picture of he and Stavros together and asked Gia if she wanted to see what his father looked like. Gia claimed to have no interest in his family and this led to the two coming physically closer as they argued. Liz burst in just as it appeared that they would kiss. Disconcerted, Gia rushed out. Nikolas confided in Liz that the charade was driving him crazy, but he assured her that he wouldn't back out. Meanwhile, Gia called "Lucien" and invited him to attend the Cassadine auction with her. He happily agreed to be her escort. Stefan visited Chloe at L&B and was thrilled when she didn't reject him out of hand. He confessed that he was feeling miserable and concerned over Nikolas and worried that he wasn't going to be able to help his nephew. Chloe reminded him of the boy he used to be who had been sensitive and loving. She suggested that he find that inner boy again and use him to get to Nikolas. Warmed by her generosity of spirit, Stefan kissed her and Chloe didn't pull away. At GH, Carly refused to let Sonny pull away from her and interrupted his conversation with Angel to ask for his forgiveness. Sonny told her that she had proved once again that she couldn't be trusted, but Carly claimed she had his best interests at heart. In order to prove to Sonny how much she loved him, she ran into Sorel's room and pulled out the plug to his ventilator. Sonny watched in and they stared at a sputtering Sorel. Both Bobbie and Tony came in and saved Sorel's life, though Bobbie warned Sorel that he might not be so lucky the next time. Carly was stunned when Angel told Tony that she had accidentally tripped on the cord and Carly had nothing to do with it. Though he didn't believe any of them, Tony walked away. Distraught when Sonny rejected her efforts, Carly had nowhere to turn. Angel offered to let Carly stay at the lakehouse and Carly willingly accepted since she wanted to go somewhere that wouldn't remind her of Sonny. At the lakehouse, Carly plopped down on the sofa and came very close to seeing the angel she had given to Sonny.

    Preview:Helena finds Luke in his altered state. Recap:Carly avoided telling Sonny her pregnancy test turned out negative and instead enticed Sonny with the possibility of a child in the future. After running into Dr. Meadows and learning the truth, Bobbie revealed the test results to Sonny in front of Carly. Sonny was furious with Carly for lying to him again and refused to listen to her explanation. Carly accused her mother of trying to ruin her life out of revenge over her affair with Tony. She said that because Bobbie didn't want her as a child, she didn't want Carly to have children either. Bobbie tried to tell Carly that she loved her, but Carly said she no longer had a mother and ran out. Angel confessed to Sorel that she saved Sonny and that she wanted to have a relationship with him. She wished him a swift trip to hell and walked out to run into Sonny. She told him about her conversation with Sorel and admitted that she wanted to be with Sonny if he was free. Just then, Carly showed up and interrupted them before Sonny could respond. Alexis and Helena accused each other of stealing Kristin's necklace when they saw that it had been removed from the case. They bickered back and forth until Taggert called a halt to it. He said that the auction room was officially a crime scene and suggested they leave before he arrested them all. Stefan supported Alexis against Helena and promised her that they would get the necklace back. In her apartment, Alexis was taking out a copy of the necklace just as Jax was fingering the real one elsewhere. Lucky was stunned to see his father alive and told him that he had vague memories of hurting him, but he wasn't sure what had happened. He begged Luke to help him figure out what was going on, but Luke was under the influence of the biotoxin and told Lucky to get lost. Even though his inner conscience yelled at him to help Lucky, he was unable to break free of the drug. When Lucky suggested that Helena had them both under her control, Luke had no memory of Helena or the other Cassadines. Luke had a brief lucid moment and gathered Lucky to him in a hug, but it quickly died when a group of men came in a took Lucky away. Alone, Luke became more and more drunk to the utter disgust of his inner conscience. Helena arrived and gloated over his useless state. She warned him that the effects of the drug would eventually erase the former Luke completely. As his inner voice urged him to strangle her, Luke reached out and grabbed Helena's arm. Meanwhile, Lucky was tied up in a strange room as someone descended a staircase to get to him.

    Preview:Jax comes back to town. Recap:Liz's world crumbled when Lucky declared that they shouldn't get married. She didn't understand his irrational behavior and begged him to go away with her so that they could straighten everything out. Lucky claimed that he couldn't protect Liz and that she was better off without him. When she continued to question him, he yelled at her to leave him alone. Liz tearfully left and sought out Sonny at the hospital. She asked for his help in breaking through to Lucky because she didn't know where Luke was and had nowhere else to turn. While Sonny was sympathetic, he wouldn't get involved because of the lingering animosity between him and Luke. Sonny and Angel pretended to be strangers for Carly's benefit, but Sonny later chastised Angel for lying to Carly. He accused her of intentionally trying to cause trouble and she reminded him that she had been nothing but honest from the start. Sonny apologized for jumping to the wrong conclusion. Angel later visited Sorel and was stunned when he wrote that she was a traitor on a piece of paper. Carly took a blood test and pelvic exam and was devastated to learn that she wasn't pregnant. Frantic, she told the doctor that she had to be expecting because it would hurt her husband too much if she wasn't. Carly ran out and spied Sonny watching babies in the hospital nursery. She didn't tell him the results of her tests. Felicia tried to call an ambulance for Luke, but he woke up and demanded that she let him take care of himself. Felicia expressed her concern for him and Luke pushed her away. He told her that she was nothing more than a sex plaything to him and he didn't want her involved in his life. When Mac happened by and heard Luke yelling at Felicia, he went to hit Luke, but Felicia declared that she would fight her own battles. She knocked Luke into a garbage pile and left. As all of this went on, the "inner Luke" was begging the "outer Luke" to tell Felicia about Helena forcing Lucky to poison him. He also wanted her to know that Stavros was alive. Unfortunately, the poison in his system was stronger than his subconscious. Luke stumbled back to his apartment and came face to face with Lucky. Alexis stormed into the auction house flanked by Taggert and Stefan and presented Helena with a court order to hand over her mother?s necklace. Helena had no intention of doing so, even when Nikolas suggested that it was the only way to get Alexis to leave. However, when Taggert forced Helena to comply, they discovered that the necklace had been stolen. The cat burglar had broken into the room using cutting edge technology and lifted the necklace out of its case. As he fingered the necklace, he lifted off the mask that covered his face. The cat burglar was Jax Jacks!

    Preview:Liz demanded that Helena tell her where Lucky is. Recap:Felicia went to Luke's apartment and let herself in when he didn't answer. She was shocked to see a disheveled Lucky sitting on the sofa. He told her that Luke wasn't coming back, but he wouldn't say why. He did let slip Helena's implanted message to "remove the king to protect the queen." Figuring that Lucky was still in some sort of trance, Felicia raced out to find Helena. On the yacht, she interrupted Liz's conversation with Helena. Liz was demanding that Helena reveal where Lucky was, and Felicia clued her in that he was at Luke's. Helena baited Felicia about her allegiance to Luke and suggested that Felicia try a deserted alley if she was seeking her lover. Acting on Helena's words, Felicia later found Luke unconscious in an alley. Angel stopped by the Penthouse to let Sonny know that if Carly wasn't pregnant, she was interested in pursuing their relationship. Sonny warned her that he intended to try again with Carly if they had a baby, and Angel said she understood. When she left, Sonny was visited by one of Sorel's lieutenants, who wanted to pledge allegiance to Sonny's camp. Sonny said that he would consider it and questioned the man about Angel's husband Donny. Bobbie figured out from Carly's hesitance to talk about the pregnancy test results that she wasn't pregnant. She was stunned when Carly suggested that Bobbie had somehow tampered with the results because she didn't want her to get back together with Sonny. Bobbie assured her that such an act was impossible and carefully told Carly that not being pregnant was probably for the best. Carly was insistent that she was carrying, and decided to go to the hospital to take a real blood test. At GH, she ran into Angel and shared the good news along with her intentions to patch things up with Sonny. When Sonny arrived, Carly introduced the two, as she remained unaware of their previous connection. Liz hurried to Luke's apartment and was relieved to find Lucky alive and well. Although he appeared to be happy to see her, he clearly wasn't himself. Liz begged him to leave town with her right away in order to save them both from Helena, but Lucky refused. He declared that he couldn't keep Liz safe, and to her horror, he decided that they should break off their engagement. Alexis found her mother's necklace in the auction room and was overwhelmed by memories of her mother singing to her. She also remembered the night that Helena slit her mother's throat. In a fit of rage, she took the necklace from its case and yelled at the guards who tried to arrest her. Ned surprisingly came to her rescue and told the guards that she was helping him test the security system. He took her out on the roof so that they could have privacy, and asked her to tell him what was going on. All that Alexis would say was that the necklace belonged to her, and no one had the right to sell it. He begged her to open up to him and let him help her, but she said she couldn't. As they left, a cat burglar loomed on the rooftop of the auction house.

    Preview:Melissa can't stay away from her brother's killer. Recap:Sonny warmed to the idea of Carly having his baby, but he was angry to learn that she still hadn't taken a pregnancy test. Carly insisted that she carried his child and was convinced that their lives would be better because of the baby. She promised that she would take a test and planned to give Bobbie the positive results as a birthday present. At GH, Bobbie inadvertently revealed to Zander that Sorel lived through the explosion and was recuperating in the room across the hall. After reading an excerpt from Emily's letter, Zander decided to take care of Sorel for good. He collapsed during the attempt and was frustrated that Sorel was alive while Emily suffered. Roy comforted him with hints of his own intentions for Sorel. Roy later discovered Melissa standing over Sorel's bed and tried to spirit her away. Tony caught the two and questioned Melissa's actions during Sorel's surgery. He intended to seek disciplinary action against Melissa for not performing her duties. When Alan heard about it, he was prepared to dismiss her, but Bobbie surprisingly came to Melissa's rescue by admitting to framing her in the past. Alan put a damper on Edward and Ned's day with the announcement that Skye would remain in the mansion. Edward warned her that even though Lila forgave her, he never would. Skye ran into Carly and pretended false friendship. Carly told her that she was reuniting with Sonny because of the baby and Skye delivered the bad news to A.J. Alexis was lost in memories of her mother as she attempted to steal back the necklace from Helena. She was thwarted by Helena and her henchmen, but refused to give up. She went to Sonny for help and was surprised when he refused to aid her in the theft. Ned spied Sonny comforting Alexis and walked away. Sonny offered to purchase the necklace for Alexis, but she opted for a plan of her own.

    Preview:Stavros woo's Gia with tender kisses. Recap:Carly worked on restoring her relationship with Sonny by promoting a happy future with the addition of a child. Sonny resisted Carly's fantasies and fumed when he discovered that Carly had yet to take a pregnancy test. He reminded her that they were no good for each other and therefore, not good for a baby. Carly tried to convince him that all they needed to do was love each other and the rest would come naturally. Mike calmed Bobbie, who was upset by the possibility of Carly and Sonny eternally united by a child. He advised her not to push Carly to break up with Sonny because she would ultimately push Carly away from her. Taking his advice to heart, Bobbie wished Carly the best when she returned to the Brownstone. Felicia waited for Luke at the club and bonded with Angel. When Angel mentioned her man troubles, Felicia encouraged her to pursue whomever it was that she wanted. Roy recognized Angel as the woman who visited Donny Ellis in prison. Angel admitted that Donny had been her husband, but he had been killed and she didn't like to think about those days. Roy apologized for bringing up hurtful memories, but he was clearly intrigued by her presence. Acting on Felicia's advice, Angel visited Sonny with an impromptu invitation to dinner. Stavros eavesdropped on Felicia's conversation with Roy. She was telling Roy about the Cassadine medallion necklace that Luke had and mentioned that they were supposed to meet to discuss their mystery-solving strategy. Unbeknownst to anyone, Luke's motionless body had been deposited in an alley and liquor had been poured over him to suggest that he was in a drunken stupor. Stavros took the opportunity to flirt with Felicia and asked for her help in retrieving his cell phone messages. He got the message that Gia left and called her back to ask her out to dinner. On the Cassadine yacht, Nikolas and Helena toasted his return to the family. Liz burst in upon the scene to ask Nikolas if he knew where Lucky was. Noticing Helena, Liz quickly changed her tune and made it seem as though she was torn between Nikolas and Lucky. When she left, Nikolas joked to Helena that he should program Liz to fall in love with him. He questioned his grandmother about mind control and she wondered at his sudden curiosity. Melissa couldn't assist Tony in Sorel's surgery because memories of Leo kept intruding. She remembered seeing Leo's battered body in the morgue and told Tony that Sorel deserved to die. She ran to Luke's and sought comfort from Roy. He reassured her that she had done the right thing by not helping Sorel. To distract her, he closed the bar and pulled her into a slow dance. As the music played, they kissed. Lucky brooded at the bar, disturbed over what had happened with Luke. On his way out of the bar, he spied Gia with Stavros. Though he had no memory of Stavros' true identity, he warned Gia not to be with the man. Gia blew off his concern, but Stavros provoked Lucky by mentioning that he should return to his father. Lucky shoved him to Stavros' amusement. Gia was disturbed at the way everyone seemed to be going out of their minds lately. Stavros told her not to worry because he would take care of her. Then he captured her lips in a kiss.

    Preview:Against his will, Lucky injects Luke with poison. Recap:Liz and Nikolas checked the boxcar for Lucky, hoping that he may have sought refuge there. Unfortunately, he wasn't there and Liz despaired of ever finding him. She believed that since Lucky had willingly turned her over to Nikolas, he had given up on his future and would be helpless against Helena. Nikolas hoped that Lucky's love for Liz was strong enough to overcome Helena's programming. Liz reached out to Lucky mentally and sent him all of her love and strength. Sonny stood over Sorel's bed and casually listed some of the evil things Sorel had done. Sorel had shot Zander, tried to kill Emily, attempted to blow up Carly and Michael, stabbed Sonny in the back, and terrorized Carly with the threat of making her his. Sonny declared that it was time for Sorel to finally pay for his sins. Sonny planned to take over his enemy's territory after he made sure that Sorel breathed his last. He picked up the tube connecting Sorel to the oxygen tank and it appeared that he was going to unplug it when Angel came in. She stopped Sonny and persuaded him to call for a doctor. Tony came in and ordered them out of the room. In the hallway, Sonny told Angel that he hadn't planned on killing Sorel just then, he was simply shaking him up. Angel didn't care about Sorel's life, she just didn't want Sonny to pay for the crime. Sonny invited her to have dinner with him, but she decided to stay with Sorel instead. Roy took Melissa into the hospital lounge so that they could have some privacy. As gently as he could, he told her that Sorel was the one who had ordered her brother Leo's death in prison on the day that Leo was to have been released. Melissa reeled at the cruelty of such an action and Roy said that he had never known a man as cruel and cold as Sorel. Melissa understood why Roy wanted Sorel dead and she agreed that hell wasn't good enough for the evil mobster. She was called away to assist in the O.R. and Roy promised to wait for her to be finished. Melissa was horrified to see that the patient was Joseph Sorel. Bobbie took Carly back to the Brownstone and attempted to dissuade her daughter from going after Sonny. Bobbie was afraid that Carly was making the same mistakes she had and she didn't want to see her get hurt. Carly refused to listen because she was convinced that she could make Sonny love and trust her again. Mike stopped by for a visit and Bobbie tried to enlist him to help Carly see reason. While Mike wasn't entirely supportive of Carly's plan, he did believe that there was a chance for a reconciliation. He suggested that Carly just give Sonny some time. Carly realized that if she hadn't lost the baby, she and Sonny would probably still be very happy. Struck with a sudden thought, Carly flipped through her calendar and then raced out of the Brownstone. Bobbie looked through the calendar and told Mike that it was the worst possible news. Sonny sat in his office reading the paper when Carly burst in. She happily told him that she was pregnant. Luke begged Lucky to run away from the lab, but Helena's programming stopped him. She commanded him to stick Luke with the syringe of biotoxin. Lucky was torn between his father's pleas and Helena's orders. Stavros attempted to interfere and kill Luke himself, but Helena wouldn't let him. To reinforce Lucky's programming, Helena brought out the Ice Princess. When Lucky saw it, he started to cry and he apologized to his father as he injected him with the needle. Luke collapsed to the floor and Lucky cradled him in his arms. Helena knelt down and kissed Luke's hand. She told him that she would miss him as an opponent. Luke started to spasm and then suddenly went still. Helena's men carried him out as Lucky wept on the floor.

    Preview:Sorel is surprised by a visit from Roy. Recap:Alan walked into an AA meeting just as Skye was confessing her recent misdeeds with Emily. Tears ran down her face as she admitted to not only hurting someone who cared about her, but ruining her chance at having a real life. She said that she had been tempted to drink her cares away, but realized that would only hurt her more. Alan piped up and said that he too had been messing up his life lately. He joined the group and reported his own failures as Skye listened in surprise. After the meeting, Alan and Skye sat down and apologized to each other. They pledged anew to try and be a better father/daughter team. Roy sat by Sorel's bedside and waited for the stricken mobster to wake up. Sorel tried to play the tough guy, but Roy reminded him that he was helpless in a hospital bed. Sorel called for help and Melissa came running in. Roy was miffed that she was treating Sorel and Melissa demanded to know the reason for his anger. He led her away from Sorel and promised to tell her everything. Gia, Lucky, and Liz listened in shock as Nikolas admitted to wanting to steal Liz from Lucky. He claimed that even though he cared about Gia, Liz was the love of his life. Liz immediately jumped in and told Lucky that it didn't matter what Nikolas wanted because she would never be with him. Gia didn't feel that Liz was the innocent and injured party as she believed that Liz was pleased to have two brothers fighting over her. Liz was stunned when Lucky declared that she and Nikolas should be together since Nikolas could better protect her from the Cassadines. She tried to get through to him, but he was late for his meeting with Helena and he left her with Nikolas. Liz and Nikolas followed him to GH, but lost his trail eventually. They did find the picture of Luke that Lucky had been holding. Gia headed to the police station and asked her brother to arrest Nikolas for causing her emotional distress. Taggert expressed his sympathy and offered his support, but told her that Nikolas hadn't committed a legal crime. To help herself get over the prince, Gia left a message for Lucien Cane, aka Stavros, and told him that she needed a friend after all. Carly flipped out when she and Sonny were separately hauled into the station for questioning. Dara wasn't looking to prosecute, she was simply trying to get a statement from Carly. Carly refused to talk until they let her husband go. When Sonny saw Carly in the interrogation room, he demanded that the police let her go home because she had been through enough emotional distress. Taggert accused Sonny of trying to murder Sorel and was prepared to arrest him. Carly ran out and told them all that she had wanted to kill Sorel after he hit her. In fact, before Alexis and Zander showed up, she had tried to kill Sorel twice. Once after he threw her to the ground and said he would make her his. Carly yelled that if they were going to arrest Sonny, they had better arrest her as well. Dara made Taggert see that they had no real case and had to let Sonny go. Sonny left without reacting at all to Carly, but he immediately went to the hospital. He got rid of Sorel's police guard and closed the blinds in the room. Sorel opened his eyes to find Sonny looming over him. Luke couldn't believe that the man standing in front of him was really Stavros Cassadine returned from the dead. He laughed and said that Helena had hired a great actor, but he wasn't buying the act. Stavros ended his laughter when he recounted the events on the night that Luke "killed" him. When he repeated things that only Luke and Laura knew, Luke realized that he was the real deal. Stavros and Luke were ready to kill each other as they argued about who had been the better man for Laura. When Stavros made a sexual comment about Laura, Luke hit him and held a knife to his throat. With genuine panic in her eyes, Helena offered him anything to make him let Stavros go. Luke pronounced that it was an instance of checkmate and he had won. Just then, Lucky came in and the distraction allowed Stavros to get the upper hand. Luke yelled for Lucky to run, but Helena's programming stopped him. She handed Lucky a syringe full of biotoxin and commanded him to remove the king to protect his queen.

    Preview:Luke comes face to face with his mortal enemy. Recap:Gia tearfully confronted Nikolas and Liz after catching them in an embrace. She jumped to the conclusion that Nikolas had broken up with her in order to be with Liz. Though they both tried to dissuade her, Gia wouldn't listen. She took off the bracelet Nikolas gave her and handed it to Liz saying that his true love should have it. She warned them that she would tell Lucky everything since she couldn't believe how they'd both betrayed his trust. Liz panicked and told Nikolas that Lucky would never forgive her for betraying him again after what happened with Jason months before. Nikolas reminded her that just as he had to give up the love of his life to save Lucky, she had to be willing to make the same sacrifice. Liz couldn't handle the thought and she ran out to stop Gia. Alexis and Stefan cornered Lucky at the Port Charles Grille to ask for his help in figuring out what was wrong with Nikolas. Lucky countered that Nikolas didn't want his help and didn't even consider him a brother anymore. Alexis shared the story of how Helena had killed her mother when she was a little girl and how that had led to her long-standing hatred of her own family. She wanted to illustrate how dangerous Helena truly was and asked Lucky if he really wanted Nikolas to suffer the pain that she did. Before Lucky could answer, a package was delivered to him from Helena. Inside was a picture of Luke and a note saying that "it was time." Gia found Lucky just as he was leaving the Grille and confided everything she believed had happened between Liz and Nikolas. Liz showed up in a flurry to refute Gia's words, but Lucky was in the grips of dealing with Helena's order and he coldly asked Liz why she had been holding on to his brother. Nikolas strolled in and casually announced that Gia was right, he wanted Liz and always had. Felicia had eavesdropped on Alexis and Stefan's conversation with Lucky and she sidled over to ask them if they knew what was going on with him. They hesitated to answer her, but she changed the subject anyway and asked if either of them was missing a Cassadine crest necklace. She pulled out the one that had been left with Luke after Helena had him attacked. Stefan showed her that he was wearing his necklace and Alexis didn't have one, though she noticed that the necklace Felicia held had belonged to Stavros. Stefan dismissed Felicia's questions by saying that Helena was clearly sending Luke the message that she would make him pay for Stavros's death. Skye sauntered into the Quartermaine mansion after a walk with Edward to find Ned and Alan lying in wait for her. They confronted her with her lies about Emily and demanded that she admit to convincing Emily to try and leave town. Backed into a corner, Skye outlined everything she had done, but she blamed her actions on Alan's apparent lack of concern for her well-being. Disgusted with her, Edward walked away and told her that he wanted her out of the house and Ned gave her the brush off as well. Alan lit into Skye for being a selfish liar, but she turned the tables by claiming that he had only given lip service to welcoming her into the family. A.J. leapt to Skye's defense by telling Alan that he always chose to ridicule his children rather than accept their faults. He wondered if Alan wasn't reacting so badly because his stress made him want to pop some pills. Not dignifying that with a response, Alan left the house. Later, Alan walked into an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting was stunned to hear Skye confessing her shameful deeds. Alexis took a box out of her closet but before she could open it, she was surprised by a visit from Ned. He offered her a supportive shoulder to lean on since she seemed to be trying to solve the world's problems and neglecting her own. Stunned that he could still be so generous to her, Alexis thanked him, but said she would be fine. After discovering the secret elevator on the roof of GH, Luke managed to get it working and he ended up below the basement of the hospital. When he exited the elevator, he recognized the maze-like room from his dreams. As he moved forward, one of Helena's henchmen was waiting for him. Luke beat the man unconscious and slipped into his clothes in order to blend in with Helena's men. Unfortunately, Helena found him and led him into the lab. Luke projected a false sense of bravado as he and Helena bantered back and forth, but he was clearly leery of Helena's plans. She prodded him to figure out what her scheme was. Luke found the biotoxin and deduced that Helena was actually planning chemical warfare. She said that was only part of her plan and chided him for missing out on her real surprise. Luke admitted that he didn't have a clue and Helena ushered him toward the cryogenic chamber. She lifted the sheet and Luke was stunned to see Stavros inside. He nervously laughed over Helena keeping her son's body intact for so long. To his complete horror, the chamber opened and Stavros opened his eyes. Stavros laughed and told Luke that he was back.

    Preview:Liz watches as Lucky comforted Gia. Recap:Luke woke up in Laura's bedroom after Stavros cudgeled him on the back of the head. He called Felicia over to help him search for clues. He knew that one of Helena's men had attacked him from behind, but he hoped that they would have left some trail behind. They found footprints on the floor that had bits of gravel and tar embedded in them. Luke speculated that the gravel and tar probably came from Helena's lab. He raced to the hospital roof where he found a secret elevator. Alexis cornered Nikolas at the Cottage and was surprised to hear that not only had he broken up with Gia, but he was serious about returning to the Cassadines. She told him that she was there to support and protect him, but she didn't agree with his decision. Stefan came in and echoed her sentiment and Nikolas blew up at them both. He accused them of constantly poisoning his mind against his grandmother and demanded that they leave. Alexis warned him that whatever scheme he was pulling, it could backfire if he took it too far. Skye entered the Quartermaine mansion just as Ned told the family that he would call Emily to get proof of Skye's perfidy. Skye stopped him and covered by saying that Emily shouldn't be disturbed. She eventually did admit that she wanted Emily gone, but only because she was jealous of how beloved Emily was. She said that she would never have done anything to hurt her little sister. Alan, Edward, and A.J. berated Ned for trying to railroad Skye, but Ned maintained that he would make them see the truth. To that end, Ned went to the hospital while Alan was visiting Zander and he bluffed that Skye had told them about helping Emily leave town. Zander confirmed the story, including the letter that Emily had written to the family. Zander said that they believed Skye was only trying to help and they didn't blame her for the accident. Alan said he understood as his eyes met Ned's. A.J. thanked Skye for helping him with Michael and told her that he was happy she had joined the family. Skye didn't believe in his sincerity until A.J. tore up Emily's letter. With tears in her eyes, Skye thanked him for making her a real member of the family. At the Deception press conference, Lucky and Liz waited with the press for Gia's arrival. When Gia walked in full of attitude and false bravado, Liz realized that Nikolas must have gone through with his plan. They watched as Gia informed the press about her break-up with Nikolas and how leaving him was the best thing she could ever have done. Afterwards, she ran out to the terrace and collapsed in tears. Lucky found her and took her in his arms to comfort her. He told her that Nikolas wasn't worth her tears and that she was better off without him. Gia wanted to return the bracelet that Nikolas gave her because she wanted no further ties to the prince. Liz spied them and slipped away to the cottage. Once there, she soothed Nikolas by reminding him that his sacrifice would pay off once Lucky was safe. She also promised that she and Lucky would look after Gia. As she hugged him, Gia walked into the cottage.

    Preview:Stavros delivers a stunning blow to Luke. Recap:Luke visited Nikolas's cottage to demand that the young prince shadow Helena to find out what she was up to. Nikolas declared that while he was slowly regaining his grandmother's trust, he didn't want to rush the process. He then asked Luke if it was true that he could count on him for help if he ran into trouble. Luke confirmed that he would be looking out for Nikolas. Just then, Gia came in so they staged an argument for her benefit. Exasperated, Gia told them both that they were fools who weren't worth her time. When Luke left, Gia proclaimed that she was moving out of the cottage. Since he was moving to the yacht, he was willing to let Gia have the cottage rent free. Not wanting to be in his debt, she refused and went to pack her things. As she left, Nikolas turned away to hide his tears. During the traditional Quartermaine breakfast, Alan lost his temper when Edward suggested that it would have been a good thing if Carly and Zander had died in the Penthouse explosion. Alan took Edward out onto the terrace and warned him that if he continued to poison the children with his negativity, Alan would disown him. A.J. and Skye went over their scheme to get Michael back from Carly and Sonny. When Skye was alone, Ned sauntered in and told her that he had found a letter from Emily. Skye couldn't hide her panic as she asked him which letter. He reassured her that it was a current letter that Emily sent from rehab. Sensing her relief, he told her that he knew she was the one who had convinced Emily to run away and he was going to prove it to the rest of the family. Carly sat by Zander's bedside and helped him wake from a nightmare. Carly had come to apologize for treating Zander badly and to thank him for trying to save her life. He admitted that he had acted impulsively, but said he would do it again if necessary. Carly soothed him back to sleep and went across the hall to see Sorel. The police officer guarding the door wouldn't let her in and neither would Tony. She yelled at them both for harboring and helping a potential child-murderer. She was stunned when A.J. arrived and took her side against Tony. A.J. told her that he wanted Michael to be safe and with his mother and to that end, he showed her papers that declared his intention to drop the custody case. Certain that it was a trick, Carly demanded that he leave her alone. Skye took the letter from Ned that Emily had slipped in for Zander and visited Zander in the hospital. She read parts of the letter to him and reiterated her claim that she had never wanted he or Emily to be hurt. Zander told her that she wasn't too blame before he drifted into sleep. Hearing a commotion in the hallway, Skye stepped outside and saw A.J. arguing with Carly. Because it was part of their scheme, she immediately sided with Carly against A.J. who pretended to leave in a huff. Carly was shocked when Skye admitted that she was A.J.'s long lost sister. At the lakehouse, Angel found the angel Carly had given to Sonny. She looked up to see Sonny standing in the doorway. She was surprised that he had come back, but she knew that their relationship as she knew it was over. Sonny asked her why she had visited Sorel. Angel said that Sorel deserved to die, but confessed that she used to know a different side of him, even before he'd had her husband killed. She never explained how she knew Sorel and Sonny didn't ask. He also didn't answer her when she asked if he was going back to Carly. Stavros lurked in Laura's house and waited for her to come home. When he heard a noise in the hallway, he hid and prepared to jump out and surprise her. He was the one surprised when it was Helena. She had trailed him to Laura's and berated him for his foolish pursuit of Laura. Stavros declared that as much as he hated Laura for causing him pain and for betraying him, she was still his wife and the mother of his child. He promised his mother that he would kill her before he allowed her to come between them. Luke arrived at Laura's to check on things in her absence and reacted calmly when he found Helena in the bedroom. He intimated that since Laura was out of town, Helena had him all to herself. As the two bantered back and forth, Stavros came from behind and knocked Luke unconscious.

    Preview:Gia speaks to Stavros as Nikolas lurked behind. Recap:Alan and Monica delivered the good news to Alexis that Zander was going to be fine. Alexis was more concerned about Zander's proximity to Sorel's room. As an unseen Angel hovered in the background, Monica assured Alexis that Sorel wouldn't be a problem because he wasn't even expected to regain consciousness. Alan let down his guard enough to commend Zander on his bravery in trying to rescue Carly and Alexis. Zander expressed his gratitude for Alan and Monica saving his life. He was also extremely glad that Emily wasn't around to witness any of the fracas. Alan echoed that sentiment and wished Zander a speedy recovery. At the Penthouse, Carly was crushed when instead of welcoming her back, Sonny told her that he wanted her to move into the Brownstone. She insisted that her place as his wife was by his side, but Sonny said she had forfeited those rights when she betrayed him. Fed up, Carly stalked away, but ended up collapsing in Sonny's arms just as Bobbie and Roy had come upstairs to retrieve her. They rushed her to the hospital and once Carly regained consciousness, she asked for Sonny. After finding out that she would be okay, Sonny left without seeing her. Laura packed for her trip and confirmed her travel plans via phone with Lesley. She heard a series of loud noises in the house and hesitantly went into the hallway. Thinking it might be Luke, she called for him. No one answered, but a shadowy figure approached her and she screamed. To her relief, it turned out to be Nikolas. He was being careful in case Helena had someone following his movements so he had entered the house through the cellar. He told Laura about his painful break up with Gia at Helena's demand. His mother was heartbroken that he had to give up so much to save Lucky, but Nikolas was determined to keep his brother safe at all costs. He asked Laura if she would consider taking Gia on the Deception trip to keep her safe from the Cassadines and to ease her pain over his betrayal. Unfortunately, Laura had already scheduled Gia for several photo shoots in Port Charles, but she did tell Nikolas that she believed he would be able to work things out with Gia once the Cassadine feud ended. Meanwhile, Gia confided in Stavros/Lucien about her relationship with Nikolas. Stavros was the soul of kindness as he asserted that she was a beautiful and dynamic young woman who would soon have her pick of men. He questioned her about Nikolas's sincerity in breaking up with her and wondered if it wasn't a scheme against his family. Gia pondered that, but she ultimately believed that Nikolas was incapable of such a deception. As they spoke, Nikolas approached them from behind. Gia whispered that he was coming and Stavros took his leave. When Nikolas questioned her about the stranger she was talking to, she informed him that he had no right to care what she did. Her anger was exacerbated when Helena strolled up hurling her usual insults and Nikolas stood up for his grandmother against Gia. When Gia left in a huff, Nikolas told Helena that he had done his part and now he wanted back in the family. Helena gifted him with the Cassadine yacht and told him his fortune would be reinstated next. Laura crept into Scott's house to kiss him goodbye before her trip. He wanted her to stay and make love with him, but she thought it was a bad idea to do that on the cusp of her leaving town. She promised that she would keep in touch and admitted that she would greatly miss him. Back at Laura's house, Stavros had stolen inside and placed a red rose on Laura's pillow along with a sexy negligee. Alexis was extremely relieved to see Sonny alive and well at the hospital. She warned him that their friendship couldn't continue as long as he strapped bombs to his body. Sonny assured her that it was a one-time deal. The duo visited Zander who apologized for acting impulsively. Sonny praised Zander's good intentions and Zander in turn praised Carly. As Sonny prepared to leave, he looked in on Sorel and was stunned to see Angel sitting by his enemy's bedside.

    Preview:Carly is relieved to find Sonny alive. Recap:Luke studied blueprints of the hospital to try and uncover the secret that Helena was keeping there. He flashed back to the dream he'd had of the maze and Stavros and just as he got to the part where Laura held out his hands to him, he woke up from the daze. The real Laura was standing in front of him, holding a ring in her hand. She told him about what she believed was Helena's latest ploy and she confessed to Luke that she had been thinking of Stavros a lot of late. Luke admitted that he had as well, but he reminded her that it was simply because the war was heating up again. Laura recognized the truth in that and said that because of the feud, she was cancelling her Deception business trip. Luke urged her to take the trip in order to keep Lulu and herself safe from the Cassadine machinations. Laura worried about Nikolas and Lucky's safety and Luke assured her that he would keep an eye on them both. Laura hugged him in gratitude since she knew he really didn't like Nikolas. Helena found Stavros enjoying a gourmet meal and demanded to know where he had been since she had scoured the town looking for him. He coolly informed her that he had paid Laura a visit. Helena was stunned by his audacity and he assured her that he hadn't let Laura see him, though he had left her a gift. Helena warned him that his obsession with Laura was going to ruin their plans for world domination. Stavros laughed and reminded his mother that that was her wish, not his. He simply wanted to take back everything that belonged to him. He told her that her games with Luke Spencer were at an end because he was ready to win the final match. Zander was wheeled into the hospital and Monica decided to perform the surgery he needed. She was determined not to have to tell Emily that she had watched her boyfriend die. During the surgery--which Alan observed--Monica discovered an irregularity in Zander's heart that caused them a major problem. Alan suggested a tactic she could use to save him and she was highly relieved when it worked. After the surgery, she gave Alexis an optimistic report about Zander's recovery. Alexis was infuriated to learn that she had broken her left wrist and would have to wear a cast for six weeks. She yelled that she had too much work to do to be out of commission. Ned laughed at her arrogance and told her that maybe it would give her a chance to take a much needed break. Mike renewed his argument with Angel about her sticking around to find out about Sonny. He couldn't believe that his son had started a relationship with her while he was still married to Carly. Angel replied that her relationship with Sonny wasn't what Mike thought. She was merely a concerned friend. Liz demanded that Nikolas take a moment to explain himself and Nikolas finally outlined his plan to save Lucky. The only problem was, he didn't really want to have to lie to Gia and break her heart. Yet he knew that if he didn't leave her, Helena would never believe that his intention to rejoin the clan was sincere. Though Liz was sympathetic to his pain, she didn't feel that Nikolas had a choice. Saving Lucky was much more important than his relationship and she was certain that in time, Gia would understand that. Lucky provided a stable shoulder for Gia to lean on at the hospital as she worried about her brother. The two also discussed Nikolas and neither of them could figure out what was making him so crazy. When Liz and Nikolas came to the hospital, Gia refused to leave until Nikolas cleared the air with all of them present. Carly heard the watch on Sonny's alarm go off and she dug through the rubble at the Penthouse to try and find him. The watch was there, but Sonny wasn't. Bobbie tried to pull Carly away and told her that it was time to give up. Just as Carly neared a total breakdown, a battered Sonny emerged from the kitchen. Carly ran to him and Sonny allowed her to embrace him. He was angry with her for putting herself in danger when he had given her plenty of time to get out of the Towers. Carly responded that she couldn't leave while his life was in danger. Sonny promised her that he would never let anything happen to her and she gently caressed his face. While the paramedics looked him over, Bobbie took Carly into the hallway and suggested that since Sonny was alive, it was time for them to leave. Unbeknownst to them, Angel watched in the background as Carly told her mother that she would never leave Sonny, even if he didn't want her around. She went back inside and told Sonny that as long as they were together, nothing else mattered.

    Preview:Port Charles is rocked by the Penthouse explosion. Recap:Port Charles was rocked as news of the explosion at the Towers was broadcast around town. In Alexis's Penthouse, Alexis, Taggert, Zander and Carly lay unconscious on the floor. Across the hall, Sonny and Sorel were seemingly buried beneath debris. Taggert was the first to wake up and he valiantly tried to rouse the others, but he eventually collapsed in pain. A.J. and Skye were in the midst of arguing about the best way to retrieve Michael from Sonny and Carly when Alan came in with the news about the explosion. While A.J. made calls to get more information, Alan confessed to Skye that he was worried about Emily hearing about the explosion and worrying about Zander. Skye was startled by her father's vulnerability when he said that he felt that life as it related to the family was moving out of his control. Skye did her best to reassure him that everyone was fine and that he was doing the best he could. Later, Skye and A.J. continued their scheming against Sonny and Carly, even going so far as to imagine both of them dead and therefore, unable to protest the custody case. Nikolas and Gia raced to the Penthouse to make sure that Alexis was unhurt. Ned, Liz, and Lucky arrived for the same reason. Lucky offered to help his brother find Alexis and wanted to give a show of support. He was crushed when Nikolas coldly rejected his offer and told Lucky that he wasn't a part of his family. An irate Liz demanded an explanation for Nikolas's behavior and accused him of lying about loving Lucky. Nikolas asserted that she would never know how much he loved his brother, but he didn't have time to give her details on what was going on. Gia worried about Taggert's safety when she heard that he was inside of the building. Carly eventually woke up and her first thought was of Sonny. She checked on Zander and tried to revive Alexis, but had no success. She practically crawled across the hall and searched for Sonny to no avail. Bobbie and Roy arrived on the scene and ran into Melissa who told them that she couldn't get into the building to try and help. Roy led them through a back staircase and they first found a traumatized Carly. She begged them to help her find Sonny, but Bobbie advised her to let Sonny go. Carly screamed that she loved Sonny and wouldn't leave without finding him. Mike attempted to get information on Sonny's welfare, but no one would tell him anything. When Mike saw Angel, he berated her for being there since he didn't feel it was appropriate. Angel countered that she had every right to be there because she had saved Sonny's life once and she wanted to make sure he was still alive. Melissa and Bobbie patched up Zander's gunshot wound as best they could and tended to a conscious Alexis. The paramedics were finally able to get through and they wheeled Zander, Taggert, and Sorel out of the building. Ned expressed his relief over Alexis's safety, but her main concern was for Sonny. Ned convinced her to let him take her to the hospital and since she didn't want to leave Zander, she agreed. As Carly looked around, she discovered a hand sticking out of the rubble. She uncovered Sorel and demanded that he tell her where Sonny was. Sorel told her he didn't know what had happened to Sonny, but he begged her to help him. Enraged that he was alive while Sonny was missing, Carly started to strangle him. Bobbie and Roy pulled her off of him and tried to calm her down. Carly heard Sonny's watch alarm go off and Roy helped her dig through the mess to get to him.

    Preview:Sonny is strapped for his meeting with Sorel. Recap:Luke held Tony at gunpoint on Helena's yacht and begged his ex-brother-in-law to give him information about Helena. Luke was certain that Tony had been coerced into working for Helena somehow. Tony asked Luke if he could make a promise that no one would be hurt if he told the truth and when Luke couldn't promise, Tony said he couldn't talk. He did reveal that Luke was headed in the right direction when Luke asked about the freight elevator. He also let Luke know that the maze was a part of things. Laura was unaware that Stavros was behind her on the stairs. She tried to turn on the lights and call for help, but all of the power was off. She screamed when a shadow loomed at the front door, but was relieved when it turned out to be Stefan. He checked the house for her and turned the power back on. Laura showed him the photo of Stavros and the ring and rose and she accused Helena of messing with her mind. Stefan wasn't sure what his mother's motives were, but couldn't disagree that she might be behind it. He changed the subject by telling her that he had come to make amends for all of his past misdeeds. He knew that she couldn't offer him a blanket forgiveness, but he wanted her to know that he was trying to change because of his love for Chloe. Laura was pleased that he was making such an effort and agreed to give him the benefit of the doubt. On the steps, a hidden Stavros smirked at his brother's words. Helena stunned Nikolas with her demand that he give up Gia to return to the Cassadines. Nikolas refused to let Helena have that much control of his life and reminded her that his father had been the same way about Laura. Helena used that relationship as an example as to why Nikolas needed to leave Gia behind. When Helena left, Nikolas held Gia close and promised to never let her go. They made love and he pledged his love to her, but he was clearly tortured by his grandmother's words. Mike banged on the lakehouse door and demanded that Sonny come out and talk to him. Angel opened the door and told Mike that Sonny hadn't come back. Mike deduced that not only had Sonny gone to rescue Carly after all, he had also lied to Mike to protect him. Mike wanted to call the police, but Angel refused to let him. She said that Sonny needed to fight this battle with Sorel and it wasn't their place to interfere. Mike was incredulous at her temerity, but Angel wouldn't be moved. She later tossed her cards and came up with the card of death. Sonny arrived at the Penthouse and calmly told Sorel to let Carly, Alexis, and Zander leave. Sorel wouldn't hear of it and told Sonny to get rid of his weapons. Sonny said he didn't have a gun, instead, he revealed a bomb strapped to his chest. A nervous Sorel wanted to believe that Sonny was bluffing, but Sonny was convincing in his willingness to die. He forced Sorel to let the others leave so they could settle things one on one. Alexis took everyone to her place and called the police, but Carly didn't want to wait for them. She ran back to Sonny who yelled for Alexis to take her away. Alone again with Sorel, Sonny gave him the choice of dying when the police caught up with him, or going straight to hell when the bomb went off. Taggert showed up at Alexis's door and they told him what was going on. Just as Alexis said that Sonny had a bomb, an explosion rocked the building.

    Preview:Laura is unaware that she is alone with Stavros. Recap:Laura played along with Nikolas's scheme to outwit Helena. As Helena lurked in the shadows, Nikolas accused Laura of loving Lucky more than she did him. He reminded her that she had abandoned him as a child and told her that she probably hated him for being Stavros's son. Laura tried to assure him of his place in her life, but Nikolas said he would be better off with the Cassadines. He made Laura leave and Helena came out of the woods to talk to him. She praised him for finally realizing the truth about his mother and Nikolas pretended to be torn between the two of them. Helena told him that she had always hoped Laura would become a proper mate for Stavros, but she believed that it took a special woman to love a Cassadine. As she said that, Gia returned from yoga and demanded that Helena leave. Nikolas sent her back into the cottage and promised they would speak later. Helena told Nikolas that if he planned to return to the family, he had to give up Gia. Luke speculated to Felicia that Tony knew more than he was saying about what was going on with Helena. In order to lure Tony into a trap, he called him and pretended to be Helena's henchman. He told Tony to meet Helena on the yacht. Meanwhile, Tony was finishing his examination of Stavros. He gave Stavros a clean bill of health, but was annoyed by Stavros's questions about Laura. When Tony refused to answer him, Stavros reminded him that something bad could happen to Lucas if Tony didn't continue to cooperate. On Helena's yacht, Tony called out to Helena and found Luke instead. Luke pointed a gun at Tony and demanded to hear the truth. Stavros broke into Laura's house and rifled through her things. He found a letter she had written to Luke while on the island in Greece and it enraged him to read of Laura's love for another man. Laura arrived at the house and was preparing to go inside when Scott showed up. They spoke on the porch since Laura told Scott she really needed some time alone. She confessed that she was worried about Nikolas and had been reminded a lot of the past lately. Scott wanted to stick around and cheer her up, but she gently asked that he let her have an evening to herself. Once inside, Laura found the photo album and a picture of her and Stavros fell out. Shaken, Laura ran out to the porch and called for Scott, but he had already left. Her terror increased when she found a red rose on the porch with her wedding ring from Stavros inside the petals. As she stood in the doorway, Stavros loomed behind her from the stairs. Carly was terrified when she picked up the phone and Sonny called out to her. He asked her if Sorel was in the Penthouse and told her to say yes or no. Carly said no and told him that she didn't want him coming around to see her. She hung up the phone and lied to Sorel that it had been Bobbie on the phone. Sorel bought her story until Carly remained adamant that Sonny wasn't going to show up. He realized that Sonny had been on the phone and Carly admitted that she had told Sonny to stay away. She would rather die than see Sorel hurt him. Outside of the Penthouse, Zander heard Sorel threatening Carly's life. He crept around to the side doors and managed to sneak in. Unfortunately, the closing door alerted Sorel and he whirled to see Zander there. Zander tried to get control of Sorel, but Sorel shot him in the chest. A tied up Alexis couldn't get to Zander so Carly threw herself in front of the teen. She begged Sorel to take her and leave Zander and Alexis alone. Mike burst into Sonny's office and was happy to see his son there. He told Sonny that his men had informed him that Sorel was holding Carly hostage. Sonny pretended not to believe him and told him he didn't care what happened to Carly. Telling Mike to stay away from him and to especially stay away from Carly, Sonny left. Mike later went to the lakehouse after leaving a message for Alexis to call the police. He banged on the lakehouse door and yelled for Sonny to come out. Sorel pointed the gun at Carly and told her that he was going to see to it that she paid for everything she had said to him. Before he could pull the trigger, a voice called out to him. He turned and saw a calm and collected Sonny standing in the doorway. Sonny casually asked Sorel what he wanted to see him for.

    Preview:Zander and Emily said a painful goodbye. Recap:Mike questioned Alexis's feelings for Sonny as he believed there was more going on than professional concern. Alexis protested a little too much and an amused Mike listened to her hem and haw about her relationship with Sonny. When Mike alluded to the fact that Sonny was with another woman, Alexis refuted that by saying that Sonny took his vows too seriously to cheat on Carly. She also said that if by some great chance Sonny did find someone else, she would wish him well. At the lakehouse, Sonny pulled away from Angel and told her that he couldn't get involved that way with her. Angel said that she didn't want a physical relationship with Sonny, she just wanted to know that he was safe. She also wanted their peace to continue and believed the best place for them was Greece. Sonny thanked her for looking out for him, but decided against going to Greece in favor of taking care of business in Port Charles. He had a cab waiting outside and Angel asked if he planned on returning to her. Sonny couldn't make any promises, but he said he would be careful. Alone, Angel burned pictures from her wedding, including one of Sorel. Though Sorel warned her to keep quiet, Carly yelled out to A.J. With Sorel's gun pressed to her side, Carly answered the door. She told A.J. that Sonny was dead and that she needed him to be sensitive to her grief. A.J. showed her the newspaper and asked how a dead man could threaten him. Carly knew nothing about the paper and said that Sonny's men had probably done it. A.J. didn't believe her, but Carly was desperate for him to stay with her. He pulled away and told her she had finally lost it. When A.J. left, Sorel warned Carly that she had made a grave mistake. Carly told him that she would die before she let him hurt her husband. Sorel admired her loyalty and wondered if she would be willing to give it to him instead of Sonny. Johnny and two of Sonny's other men debated on letting Sonny know that Sorel had Carly. While Johnny was in favor of telling Sonny, the other two thought Sonny wouldn't care because Carly was dead to him. Johnny ignored their orders and went in search of their boss. A few minutes after he left, Sonny strolled in and wanted to know what had happened in his absence. Neither of his men said anything about Carly. Later, Sonny and Alexis met on the docks and Alexis berated him for worrying her with his unexplained absence. Sonny apologized and she filled him in on everything that had happened with Zander and A.J. Then she told him that she had been spending a lot of time with Carly and asked if he wanted to know how his wife was doing without him. Zander finally got through to Emily and she agreed to leave town without him to go to rehab. It was a very difficult decision for them to live with, but Zander promised that they would only be apart until Sorel was captured. Alan and Monica thanked Zander for getting Emily to leave willingly and Edward grudgingly offered his thanks as well. In a moment alone, Skye confessed to Emily that she had initially been jealous of her, but she had come to realize that Emily was a wonderful and special person. Skye said that she felt very lucky to have Emily as a sister. Zander and Emily shared a final private moment where they pledged their love to each other. Alan and Monica wheeled Emily away with the family in tow. Zander's pain overwhelmed him as he watched her leave him and he cried alone.

    Preview:A.J. is sent a special message from Sonny. Recap:A.J. was horrified when he received a mock newspaper sporting a headline that he had died in a fiery car crash. He immediately accused Skye of creating the paper to spite him, but she was completely innocent. When she pointed out that the paper further stated that A.J.'s dying wish had been for Carly and Sonny to raise Michael, they realized the paper was a message from Sonny. Skye told A.J. she had a plan to get Michael back, but before she could unveil it, Ned walked in. Believing that he and A.J. were still working together, he asked for information on Skye. A.J. suggested that they back off Skye for a while which made Ned realize that A.J. had switched sides. When Ned left, Skye tore up A.J.'s court papers and told him that the way to get Michael was to lull Carly into a false sense of security. A.J. mulled that over for a minute before deciding to do things his own way. Zander procrastinated on telling Emily about her solo trip to a rehab clinic. Alan and Monica demanded that he tell her or they would. When Zander eventually confessed the plan, Emily cried in denial. She blamed the whole thing on her family and believed they had made Zander turn against her. Zander assured her that he was only thinking of her safety. Emily asked if he was dumping her because she was a cripple and Zander broke down in tears. He told her how much he loved her and how much she had changed his life. He was determined to honor her by doing one unselfish thing. He and Emily cried in each other's arms as the reality of the situation set in. Carly attempted to get to Sorel's humanity by asking him about his wife. She was surprised when he tearfully told her about his wife's death and how it changed everything for his family. He said that once his wife was gone his children turned against him until all he had left was the business. The galling thing for him was that he wasn't as good at it as Sonny, but he believed that Sonny's death would change all that. Carly overplayed her hand by telling him how sorry she was and he noticed that she was holding her hand funny. He forced her to reveal the paperweight she was hiding. Carly quickly recovered by telling Sorel she believed he had killed Sonny after all. Her pain and tears were so real that Sorel started to believe that maybe Sonny was dead. He decided he had no more use for her and planned to leave when a knock sounded on the door. A.J. called to her from the other side. Alexis ran into Mike at Kelly's and asked him if he could tell her where Sonny was. She promised not to tell anyone, especially Carly. Mike wondered why she needed to know so badly and Alexis simply implored him to tell her the truth. Sonny stunned Angel by telling her that he had changed his mind about going with her to Greece. He had been thinking about her behavior when they saw the newscast about Sorel and he felt that something more was going on with her. He wondered if she was secretly working with Sorel to trap him. Angel angrily admitted that she did know Sorel intimately because he had killed her husband. She told him that her husband had gotten in the way of Sorel's business and Sorel had him killed. She didn't want that to happen to Sonny and that was why she wanted him to leave with her so that he would be protected. Sonny believed her, especially when she wrapped her arms around him. He pulled away to look down at her and their mouths moved closer together until they were almost in a kiss.

    Preview:Nikolas finds Lucky and Gia in a compromising position. Recap:Laura confronted Luke about the argument between him and Nikolas. To relieve her worries, he told her about Nikolas's plan to infiltrate the Cassadines to feed Luke information. Laura strongly disapproved of that plan since she feared that Nikolas would be hurt somehow. She also worried about the tension it would put between Nikolas and Lucky. Luke assured her that he would look out for Nikolas, but reminded her that her son was a grown man and she couldn't exactly tell him what to do. Laura agreed, but asked Luke to be careful. Changing tunes, she told Luke about her dream of Stavros and he surprised her by telling her about his Stavros dream. He chalked it up to the stress the Cassadines were putting on their family and bade her not to worry. Nikolas walked into the cottage and spied Lucky and Gia playfully rolling around the couch. He used the situation as an opportunity to alienate himself from Lucky and he yelled at his brother for fooling around with his girlfriend. Lucky and Gia assured him that they had just been practicing for a photo shoot, but Nikolas claimed not to believe them. Liz came in and suggested that if Nikolas was having a problem, maybe she and Lucky should leave the cottage. Nikolas agreed and told them he wanted them out immediately. They left, but not before Lucky admonished his brother for living up to Luke's expectations. Nikolas tried to reach out to Gia, but she angrily shunned him as well. In the underground lab, Helena gleefully reported to Stavros that she had spied on Nikolas and saw him kick Lucky out of the cottage. She believed that her grandson was one step closer to returning to the fold. Stavros warned her that Nikolas was every inch his son and was probably deceiving her. Helena told him that she had devised a test to find out the truth. Alan brought Ned and Zander into his office so that they could discuss Emily's situation in private. Zander stuck to the notion that Alan had to send Emily away for rehab and for her own protection, Zander didn't want to know where she went. Although Alan reiterated that Emily wouldn't be in danger at all if not for Zander, he was pleased to see that the teen was being selfless for once. He agreed to make the arrangements and planned for Emily to leave the next day. Ned convinced him to let Emily and Zander have one last evening together and promised to keep guard outside the door. Zander pretended to Emily that wall was well, but his pain was evident in the way he looked at her. Angel asked Sonny if he was truly finished with Carly and Sonny told her that he had no plans to return to his wife. Angel played a game of cards where she pretended to tell his future. She turned over one card and said it meant that Sonny wasn't being truthful to himself. She believed that he did have unfinished business with Carly. Sonny changed the subject by asking her to tell him more about her life. She told him a story about her aunt, but revealed nothing more. Angel turned the tables again by telling him about an island in Greece where they would be safe from anyone trying to hurt him. Sonny agreed to go to the island with her. As they spoke, a bulletin came on about Sorel's escape and Sonny stared at a clearly shaken Angel. Carly was horrified when Sorel burst into the Penthouse and trained a gun on her. He told her that he intended to bring Sonny out of hiding by holding on to the one thing he held dear. Carly tried to get away by hitting him with a fireplace poker, but Sorel overpowered her and knocked her to the floor. A knock sounded at the door and Taggert called out to Carly. Sorel warned her that if she attempted to get help, he would make certain that Michael and Bobbie died. Carly opened the door, but Sorel was pressing a gun to her side. She shrugged off Taggert's warnings about Sorel and quickly got rid of him. Sorel praised her quick thinking and called one of his associates to give them instructions. While Sorel was on the phone, Carly slipped a paperweight from the desk into her pocket.

    Preview:Sorel corners Carly in the Penthouse. Recap:The fragile peace between Ned and Alexis died a quick death when he began berating her again for her dealings with Sonny and Carly. Exasperated, Alexis asked if he could please sing a different tune. She wondered when he had become so narrow-minded and judgmental, but Ned believed that her judgment was cloudy. When she passionately defended Sonny and her relationship with him, Ned hinted that her feelings for Sonny went deeper than she was saying. Alexis told him he was ridiculous and stalked away. In the park, Stavros told Carly that he was more than willing to divert her attention from her problems. He grabbed her and kissed her, but Carly slapped him and pulled away. Though he tried to make it seem as though she had wanted him, Carly assured him that nothing was further from the truth. Alexis saved her just in time and naturally, Stavros disappeared before she could see him. Helena upbraided Stavros for taking so many risky chances, but he told her to essentially mind her own business. Mike made a final attempt to persuade Sonny to if not forgive Carly, to at least come home. Sonny said he would think about returning to Port Charles, but he wouldn't go back to Carly. He recognized that Carly's intentions were good if misguided, but he maintained that she wasn't trustworthy. Mike wondered if Sonny wasn't mistakenly trusting Angel just to rid himself of Carly. Sonny said that Angel had proven reliable thus far and that's what he based his trust on. After Mike left, Sonny found Angel's photo album and rifled through it. Angel caught him and yelled at him for snooping through her things. Sonny apologized and offered her a game of truth instead. He asked her generic questions about her life, but she turned the tables and asked him if he was planning on returning to Carly. Emily and Zander were in shock when her bodyguard Harry pulled a gun on them. Zander surmised that Harry worked for Sorel and he tried to bargain with the man. While he spoke to Harry, Emily tried to press her call button for help. Harry spotted her and pointed the gun toward her. Zander convinced the man to take him and leave Emily behind. In the hallway, Zander jumped Harry and tried to get the gun away. Ned and a legitimate bodyguard rushed in to help subdue Harry. Zander asked one of the male nurses to call the police and he went to check on Emily. He found her crying on the floor and called for a doctor. Alan came in and Emily yelled in frustration that she hadn't been able to help. Alan soothed her by saying even that movement was encouraging. Meanwhile, Ned asked Zander what his new plan was to keep Emily safe. Zander refused to walk out on Emily, but he surprised everyone by asking Alan to send Emily away from him. A.J. told Skye that he would be willing to make Emily's letter disappear if she would help him in his quest to get custody of Michael. Even though he had her over a barrel, Skye was reluctant to help A.J. because she didn't think very highly of him. A.J. won her over by talking about his deep love for Michael. He told her that he didn't want Michael to grow up resenting him the way that Skye resented her parents. Putting her mistrust of him aside, Skye agreed to help him. Taggert and his police force burst into Sorel's motel room hoping to nab him. Instead, they found one of his associates dead and no trace of Sorel. Mike went to the Penthouse to check on Carly and found her in the same desperate state he'd left her in before. Without telling her that he had spoken to Sonny, Mike told her that he believed Sonny would come home--just maybe not to her. He assured her that he knew Sonny would take care of her and Michael, but Carly didn't want to be a burden, she wanted to be a wife. Before leaving, Mike advised her to be patient and rational. Carly heard a noise at the door and thought it might be Sonny. Instead, Sorel came through the door and smiled at her.

    Preview:Gia runs into Stavros in the park. Recap:Roy visited Melissa to make certain she was safe after he had such awful dreams of her. He got to her apartment and called out to her in fear when he heard what sounded like gun fire outside. He threw her to the floor when she came out and she laughed at him because the noise was just fireworks. Later, Roy told Melissa that his dream was the reason for his bad nerves. Melissa told Roy that she had dreamt of him as well, but she wouldn't give the details of her dream. When he pressed her, she kissed him and said she had dreamt of doing that. After a night of dreaming about the Cassadines, Luke was more determined than ever to break through the elevator shaft and see what was in the basement. Melissa and Roy stood by as he used a blow torch to create a huge hole in the floor. Tony came along just as Luke prepared to move the wires and see what was below them. He tried to hide his panic and told Luke to leave well enough alone. Luke refused to listen and he moved the wires. He was disappointed to see another layer of cement. It didn't look new so they all surmised that this was the foundation of the building. Tony breathed a sigh of relief, but Luke remained certain that there was more the basement than met the eye. Emily was thrilled when her family came in with picnic baskets of food and decorations. At Skye's suggestion, they had decided to bring the Fourth of July to Emily. Lila saw the way Emily looked at Zander and told the family that Emily probably wanted to spend time with him. Emily thanked them all for thinking of her, but admitted that Lila was right. Respecting her wishes, they took the party to the park. Alone with Emily, Zander leaned down to kiss her and she saw the gun sticking out of his waistband. In the park, Skye set up an elaborate picnic replete with tables, fine china, and flowers. Monica chided her for making the picnic such a production, but Alan and Edward thought Skye had done a fine job. A.J. made several snide remarks about Skye and in a toast to her, he thanked her for being such a good sister to Emily. Ned asked him what he was trying to say and A.J. declared that he knew who had helped Emily run away. Gia reeled when Nikolas told her that he was considering returning to the Cassadines. He thought it might be the best thing for Lucky considering the damage he was doing to the Spencer clan. He figured that Lucky needed his father more than his brother at this time. Gia reasoned with him and told him that he shouldn't give up his freedom at any cost. As much as she cared about Lucky, she loved Nikolas and knew that his family would hurt him. Overcome, Nikolas took her in his arms and told her how much he loved her. He promised her that he would be careful no matter what happened. Helena was annoyed by Stavros's cocky attitude about regaining Nikolas and Laura. She accused him of being careless and endangering their plans. Stavros reminded her that he was the one in control and he made Helena laugh in spite of herself. In the midst of their talk, Helena received a call from Nikolas who wanted to meet with her right away. Helena met him in the park and was shocked when Nikolas wanted to know more about his father. Meanwhile, Stavros wandered through the park and Gia accidentally bumped into him. He grabbed her by the arms to steady her and said he was happy to see her.

    Preview:Nikolas dreams of returning to the Cassadine fold. Recap:Luke was determined to drill down into the basement to see what Helena had hidden there. Melissa and Roy tried to dissuade him because he didn't have the proper equipment and it was very late in the evening. Luke agreed to take a rest and he fell asleep in a chair. He dreamt of Laura leading him to a hole that already existed in the floor and he jumped through it to find himself in the maze. He came upon a coffin and was shocked to see that he was inside of it. Yelling that he refused to be defeated, he turned to see a strange man holding a crimson rose. As he chased the man, he called out for Lucky and Lulu. Luke turned a corner and came face to face with Stavros. Though he tried to run after him, Stavros disappeared and he heard Laura's voice and saw her holding out her hands to him. He reached for her just as he woke up. In Los Angeles, Scott and Laura put together their photo album and Laura thanked him again for making the day so special. He kissed her goodnight and left before he lost his self-control. Laura slept and dreamt of making a movie with Scott with Luke acting as director. In the dream, she was professing her love to Scott, but Luke thought the scene wasn't genuine so he took Scott's place. Laura said the lines to Luke and then asked him why he had left her. Luke told her that he had never stopped loving her and they danced happily. Just as she turned to kiss him, Luke disappeared and Stavros was there in his place. He reminded Laura that she was his life and was meant to be with him. Laura screamed for Luke and woke up to see a crimson rose on the table. Felicia had a fantasy dream where she cracked the code of the Cassadine disks and managed to de-program Lucky. When she told Luke everything she had done, he declared his love for her and told her he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. As they kissed on the docks, a crimson rose floated in the water beyond them and Luke decided to retrieve it for Felicia. She begged him not to leave, but he disappeared into the water. Melissa had the beginnings of a sweet dream in which she and Roy were back in Chicago at a bar called Rosie's. Roy played her a song on the piano, then took her in his arms and told her that she meant everything to him. Before their lips could meet in a kiss, she noticed crimson roses on the piano. When she turned to ask Roy about them, he had become Stavros and she couldn't get away from him. Roy also dreamt of being with Melissa, only in his dream, she was being dragged away by Stavros, who held a crimson rose. Melissa cried for Roy to save her, but Stavros dragged her into the elevator. Roy banged on the door when he heard Melissa scream. When the door opened, Melissa lay at the bottom of the elevator shaft with blood coming from her mouth. Roy shouted in horror and woke up in a panic. A tortured Stefan drank from a bottle of vodka and took out a picture of Chloe that he placed on his nightstand. He fell into a deep dream where he and Alexis were children playing with a boat his father had given him. A young Stavros came into the picture and demanded that Stefan give him the boat. When Stefan refused, Stavros smashed it into pieces. He told Stefan that he would never have anything that Stavros wanted. The dream changed and he and Alexis were adults. She told him that the only way to defeat Stavros was to let him go. Chloe was also in the dream and she told Stefan that she loved him and she was the one thing that his brother couldn't have. As he moved to make love to her, the dream changed again and he was watching his brother make love to Chloe. Stefan woke to see a vase of crimson roses on the floor. After talking to Nikolas about Helena and his father, Gia had a dream in which Helena had bound Nikolas's hands and refused to let him go. Using a magical diamond ring, Gia forced Helena to release Nikolas. He pledged his love to her and thanked her for saving his life. As they kissed, they were interrupted by a man holding a crimson rose in his hand. Gia tried to make him go away with the ring, but he wouldn't leave. Instead, he took Nikolas away from her. Nikolas was also caught in the grips of a nightmare. He dreamt that Gia and Laura were trying to save him from Helena's clutches, but the Cassadine grip was too strong. Helena, dressed as a queen, sat at the head of a table and told Nikolas to take his rightful place beside her. Gia begged Nikolas to look in the mirror and see who he truly was. When he looked, he saw his father staring back at him, holding a crimson rose. Nikolas woke up in a cold sweat and wrapped himself around Gia. Helena found Stavros on the roof of GH clutching a crimson rose in his hand. He told his mother that even though she was really to blame for him losing his son and his wife, she had properly atoned for her sins. However, his days of waiting for her plan to take affect were over. Stavros had decided to get what he wanted no matter who he had to destroy in the process. He let the rose fall from his hand and he laughed devilishly as he walked away.

    Preview:Melissa happily falls into Roy's arms. Recap:Melissa and Roy remained trapped on the elevator in the GH basement. Roy boosted Melissa up to the ceiling so that she could try and climb out. Melissa screamed at the darkness of the shaft and slipped and fell into Roy's arms. The tension mounted between them and yet they pulled away before anything could happen. The elevator started moving again and when it opened, Helena was standing there. Melissa and Roy covered and said that they were looking for a private corner to spend time in. Helena didn't believe them and told Stavros that they were going to be a problem. Stavros said he knew just how to handle them. Roy called Luke who wanted to find out exactly what was below the basement. Kevin spoke to Lucky about continuing his therapy sessions. Lucky didn't see any point when it seemed that he would never be free of his problems. Kevin convinced him that seeking help was the only way he would ever be in control of his future. Lucky finally agreed to keep seeing Kevin. Stavros stood behind Luke with a garrote in hand, ready to take his life, but he stopped himself in time. Instead, he listened to Gia's conversation with Luke. Gia confronted Luke about his treatment of Nikolas and reminded him that his son loved his brother. Luke told her that Nikolas was poison and she would do well to stay away from him. Gia declared that Luke had better stay away from Nikolas or she would do him serious damage. Luke was amused by her threat and told her she was pretty when she was angry. Gia stormed away and found Helena attempting to coerce Nikolas back into the Cassadine fold. She pulled Nikolas away, but not before he told his grandmother that he would think about what she said. Later at the cottage, Luke secretly visited Nikolas and congratulated his performance at the Grille. He reminded Nikolas to tell him everything that happened between him and Helena. Alan and Monica rejoiced when they ran tests on Emily and discovered that sensation had returned to her legs. They warned her that she had a long road to recovery, but they predicted that she would regain full use of her legs. Emily thanked Zander for staying by her side and helping her through such a scary time. The two kissed and were only interrupted by one of Emily's guards. He told them he was going on break, but instead he called Sorel. Sorel told the man to get rid of Zander immediately so that Sonny would be drawn out of hiding. Angel and Sonny couldn't deny the attraction between them, but neither of them was willing to act on it. Angel told Sonny that she wanted him to stay on the island, but things had to remain platonic. She was pleased when Sonny told her that he felt peaceful for the first time in a long time and owed it all to her. Later though, Sonny called Benny and reminded him to keep investigating Angel until he found something. Johnny and another of Sonny's men cornered A.J. and warned him to drop the custody case for Michael. They strongly suggested that it would be in his best interest to let Michael stay with Carly. A.J. said he wasn't frightened of them or of Sonny, but he looked uncertain when they left. Alan and Monica questioned Emily about the money they found in her backpack. In front of Skye and A.J., Emily lied and said that she and Zander needed to leave town and she had stolen money from Skye's purse to finance their travels. Skye didn't refute Emily's statement, but she later asked Emily why she had lied for her. Skye was genuinely overwhelmed when Emily said she was grateful to Skye for trying to help. Skye started to cry when she realized that Emily cared about her. She ran into Alan who held her and thanked her for being a good sister to Emily. A watching A.J. didn't buy Skye's sudden sincerity and he listened as Zander asked Skye if she still had the letter. At the mansion, A.J. snooped through Skye's things and found the letter Emily had written to the family. He realized that Skye had been in on the scheme from the beginning. Nearing the end of their vacation, Scott wanted the evening to be special for Laura. He told her that he loved her and that he wanted to make love to her. Laura gently told him that she wasn't ready to take that final step yet, but it didn't mean that she didn't have feelings for him. She just needed to move slowly. Scott agreed to take it slow, but promised that he wasn't giving up.

    Preview: Helena tentatively reaches out to Nikolas. Recap: Laura was overwhelmed by how thoroughly Scott had planned their Hollywood vacation. He rented a soundstage so that they could make their own movie and even had costumers on hand to outfit them. They had a hilarious time as they re-enacted scenes from a Charlie Chaplin film, Cleopatra, Gone With the Wind, and Casablanca. Scott ended their day by taking Laura to a fantastic hotel suite. Once there, he told her that he loved her and was ready to move forward toward a future with her. Luke decked Nikolas at the PC Grille much to everyone's shock. Luke yelled that Nikolas was Cassadine poison and had been working with his family all along to betray Lucky. Initially, Nikolas balked at Luke's words, but something in Luke's face alerted him and he changed his attitude. He played along with Luke's scheme and said that he hadn't sided with the Cassadines, but he certainly had no further intention of being a Spencer. Helena was encouraged by his words and asked if he was considering returning to the family. Nikolas said that he wasn't, but he allowed her to see his hesitation. On the terrace, Lucky confronted his father about constantly berating Nikolas. Luke warned him that Nikolas wasn't as loyal as Lucky believed, but Lucky would hear none of it. He told Luke that either he accepted Nikolas in his life or he stepped aside. When Luke refused to welcome Nikolas, Lucky walked away. Stavros, who had listened to the entire conversation between Luke and Nikolas, approached Luke from behind with a garrote in hand. While investigating things in the basement, Melissa came across men delivering strange boxes to GH in Helena's name. She told Roy about the shipment and wouldn't allow him to look into without her. When they went back downstairs, the boxes had disappeared though Roy saw traces of something large having been dragged across the floor. They took the freight elevator to try and find the boxes, but it stopped between floors. While they waited to see if it would move again, they reminisced about being stuck on an elevator together in Chicago. Just as things heated up between them, the elevator started moving again, but it started to go down instead of up. They looked at each other in shock, wondering what could be below the basement. Angel slipped in the mud while checking on one of the trees outside. Sonny helped her back inside and cleaned her up. There was a strange intimacy and attraction between them that surprised them both, but they didn't act on the feelings. After waking from a nightmare where she couldn't feel her legs, Emily asked Zander if something was really wrong with her. She started to panic just as Alan and Monica came in. Not wanting to lie to her, they told her that there was a danger that she was paralyzed from the waist down. As Emily grew increasingly upset, Zander sat beside her and forced her to think of happier times. He reminded her of prom night when they danced in the lamplight. Emily smiled at the thought and her leg jumped. Everyone watched the movement with joyous astonishment.

    Preview: Scott creates a fantasy vacation for Laura. Recap: Angel asked Sonny if he planned on returning to Carly. Sonny revealed that a part of him wanted to go home and yet a part of him never wanted to see Carly again. He asked Angel what she wanted him to do and without hesitation she asked him to stay. Without answering, Sonny went into the kitchen and started to prepare dinner. Angel watched him from the doorway later on as he fingered his wedding ring. It appeared that he was going to throw the ring into the lake, but he pocketed it instead. They stood together on the porch as a storm started and when the lights went out, they drew closer together. Carly couldn't believe that Bobbie suggested that she divorce Sonny. She accused Bobbie of projecting her feelings for Roy onto Sonny and she told her mother that she had no intention of giving up on her marriage. When Carly went upstairs, Mike advised Bobbie to stay out of it. He told her that Sonny needed time to forgive Carly and Mike was certain that he would, no matter what Sonny was doing or who he was with. Bobbie took that statement to mean that Sonny was with another woman. Carly appeared at the top of the steps and asked what woman Sonny was with. Mike assured her that Bobbie misunderstood him and reminded her that he hadn't seen Sonny for weeks. Bobbie finally left after she realized she couldn't get through to Carly, but Carly asked Mike if he would stay with her because she was lonely. Scott whisked Laura away to Los Angeles to recreate their long-ago honeymoon. Laura was stunned that Scott remembered everything they had done down to the last detail. He bought her a memory book and hired a photographer to capture all of their special moments. As he outlined his plan, Laura told him how special he was to her and admitted that she wanted to do everything all over again with him. Encouraged, Scott took her to a soundstage that he had rented for the day. He planned to make a movie with her as his leading lady. Nikolas demanded that Luke help him to save Lucky from Helena. He outlined a plan to Luke whereby he would go back to the Cassadine fold and do damage from the inside. Luke appreciated the sentiment, but he told Nikolas that he was too green to be of use. Nikolas thought that maybe if his family believed that he hated Luke more than them, they would accept his return. Luke told him it would never work and Nikolas stormed out in anger. Helena passed him and asked Luke what he had done to her grandson. Luke grabbed her face in his hands and said he was changing the game. He was willing now to trade Nikolas for Lucky. After saying that, he planted a loveless, but angry kiss on Helena's lips. Chloe met Stavros for dinner at the PC Grille. As she sat down, Stavros had a fantasy in which he told her that he was Stavros Cassadine and she screamed in terror. In reality, he told her that he was in town on business and did know a few people in town--including Stefan Cassadine. Chloe was surprised that he knew Stefan and began to get a little uncomfortable with some of "Lucien's" remarks. She told him that she would be in touch and left quickly. Gia, Lucky, and Liz arrived at the PC Grille and had a friendly argument about Liz and Lucky's wedding plans. Gia couldn't believe that they hadn't started to plan anything and she decided to take matters into her own hands. She approached the manager about holding the wedding reception at the Grille, but he told her the reservations needed to be made at least a year in advance. A lurking Stavros listened as Gia tried to play on her Face of Deception status to book the room. She struck out, but Stavros approached her and played on her vanity to charm her. Nikolas soon came in and Stavros slid away. He had another fantasy of Nikolas coming to him and telling him how proud he was to be Stavros's son. As the fantasy ended, Luke rushed in with Helena on his heels. In front of Lucky and Gia, Luke called out to Nikolas and hit him without warning.

    Preview: Luke finds a corpse that bears his name. Recap: When Carly showed up at the lakehouse to confront Angel about their fender bender, she was initially hostile until she realized that she was simply taking out her anger on Angel. She apologized for her behavior and explained that she was distraught over losing her husband and potentially losing her son. She told Angel about the custody suit over Michael and said that if her name turned up in a court case, it would give her ex-husband ammunition against her. Angel agreed to have her insurance company drop the claim and Carly was extremely grateful. She also gave Angel a quick recap on her love for Sonny and how she had caused such a great mess between them. Angel listened without saying a word about Sonny. On the porch, Mike found Sonny's wedding ring and realized he was probably in the house. He told Carly that he knew where Sonny was and she immediately demanded that he take her to him. Rethinking his position, Mike covered and said that he thought he had an idea, but he was wrong. Carly thanked Angel again for being understanding and went back to the Penthouse with Mike. Once there, she was determined to do whatever it took to find Sonny and bring him home. Bobbie showed up and told Carly that the best thing for her to do was to leave Sonny for good. Sonny came out of hiding after eavesdropping on Carly and Angel's conversation. Angel made the observation that Carly loved Sonny very much. Sonny countered that Carly only thought she loved him because the proof of the truth was in her actions. Angel didn't question Sonny any further until it appeared that he was going to leave. She asked him if he was going back to Carly. Liz visited Emily and told her that she and Lucky had set their wedding for the end of the summer. She told Emily that she had to recover by then because she was going to be Liz's maid-of-honor. Emily agreed and promised her friend that she would walk down the aisle for her. At the hospital, Ned told Zander that there was a good chance that Emily was paralyzed and asked Zander how that would change his feelings. Zander told Ned that Emily had been the only person in his life to stand by him and even if he wasn't in love with her, he would stand by her. Both Ned and a nearby Alexis were touched by Zander's sentiment. Zander went back inside to sit with Emily after Chloe completed her visit. As Chloe spoke to Ned and Alexis, Stefan came up and offered his assistance with anything that Emily needed. Ned tried to warn Chloe not to trust him, but Chloe said she would make up her own mind. Alone with Ned, Alexis asked him whether or not he believed Stefan could change. Ned revealed that he didn't think a Cassadine could truly change their colors. Alexis reminded him that she was a Cassadine so he probably didn't believe in her either. Stavros introduced himself to Chloe as Lucien Cane, an international businessman. He smoothly charmed Chloe by telling her that he was a big fan of her designs and he was interested in working with her and furthering her international career. Intrigued, Chloe agreed to have dinner with him at the PC Grille. Melissa discovered Roy snooping through the GH basement and told him that if he was planning on investigating Helena Cassadine, she was going to help him. Luke came in and outlined all the reasons that he didn't trust Melissa and refused to let her be involved. Melissa defiantly told Luke and Roy that she didn't take orders from either of them and she was going to help whether they liked it or not. Lucky was shocked when Helena had her men knock Nikolas unconscious. She told Lucky that she didn't want to hurt her grandson, but she couldn't allow him to interfere with her special friendship with Lucky. Holding up the diamond, she reminded Lucky that he was to always come to her secretly, but never let anyone know about their relationship. Nikolas woke up long enough to hear Helena giving Lucky instructions. When she left, Lucky didn't remember a thing. When Gia saw Nikolas on the ground, she immediately suspected Lucky of hitting him. Nikolas lied and said that Lucky's tripod had fallen and hit him in the head. Liz came by to get Lucky and told them about her visit with Emily. Nikolas suggested that they all go to dinner at the PC Grille, but he told Gia that he would meet her there because he had something to take care of first. Nikolas tracked down Luke at the hospital and told him that they were in danger of losing Lucky.

    Preview: Gia has a blast at her Deception shoot. Recap: Though the two women were still at odds, Melissa offered Bobbie her admiration for the way Bobbie handled the ER during the Nurses Ball accident. Bobbie reluctantly told Melissa that she had done a good job as well. Melissa also told Bobbie about talking to Carly that same night and suggested that Carly really needed her mother's help. Bobbie sarcastically thanked Melissa for comforting Carly. At the docks, Luke discovered a Cassadine shipment that was due to be delivered to GH. He enlisted Roy's help in finding out what the shipment was and they went to the hospital to ask Bobbie for help. Bobbie searched the computer and found out that while several shipments appeared to be headed for the hospital, no inventory was ever logged in. As she and Luke tried to solve the puzzle, he used the opportunity to ask her if she had changed her mind about Roy. Bobbie informed her brother that although she had forgiven Roy for his mistakes, she really didn't think he was the right man for her. She wanted a man who would have booted Melissa out of town immediately. Satisfied that she was okay, Luke let the matter drop. Stavros listened incredulously to Chloe and Stefan's conversation at Wyndemere. Stefan told Chloe about his affair with Laura and how so much of his life had been about competing with his brother. He confessed that when he'd learned that Stavros was dead, he had hoped it meant he would finally have a normal life. Unfortunately, that hadn't happened because Helena had picked up where Stavros left off. Stefan revealed to Chloe that he was trying to overcome his birthright and become a decent person. He asked her if she would find a way to give Nikolas the money in his trust fund without letting on that the money came from Stavros. Touched by his apparent sincerity, Chloe agreed to help him with Nikolas, but she told him she couldn't act as his conscience. Encouraged, Stefan kissed her hands and thanked her. Later, Chloe boarded the elevator at GH and found herself alone with a handsome stranger--Stavros Cassadine. Alexis found Laura and Scott on the docks and asked Laura if she would consider letting Carly back into the company. She knew that Carly's actions had been wrong, but she argued that Carly had made a positive contribution to Deception. Scott countered by reminding Alexis of the custody case for Michael and told her that if Carly couldn't even be a parent, she shouldn't try to be a businesswoman. Alexis refuted that and said that A.J.'s record was even worse than Carly's and assured Scott that Michael would remain with his mother. Laura interrupted and said that while she felt sorry for Carly, she also felt that Sonny wouldn't have given her the company if he hadn't wanted to. She decided against letting Carly back into Deception. Scott asked Laura if she would give him twenty-four hours of her life to take a trip with him. She was tempted to say yes, but worried about leaving Lucky at such a critical time. Scott brought up the fact that Lucky had an entire clan protecting him and he grudgingly admitted At Wyndemere, Alexis came in just as Chloe left and asked her brother what he was doing to Chloe this time. Stefan assured her that he had no intention of hurting Chloe again. He was convinced that this time, his love was pure and he would actually do whatever it took to protect and care for Chloe. Gia was blissful at her Deception photo shoot. She responded well to Lucky's direction with the camera, but she really blossomed when Nikolas showed up. Nikolas congratulated her success with a kiss and Lucky snapped photos of the happy couple. While Gia changed, Nikolas sat with Lucky and his brother chided him about being a bodyguard. Nikolas was in the midst of responding when he was hit from behind. Lucky turned to see a smiling Helena standing over Nikolas with two of her goons.

    Preview: Sorel has new orders for his henchman. Recap:Stavros questioned Helena about the Spencer family's undue influence over Nikolas. He wanted to know how such a thing had been allowed to happen. Rather than admit that she couldn't control Nikolas, Helena blamed everything on Stefan. She told Stavros that Stefan had an affair with Laura and was obsessed with making a family for himself with Laura and Nikolas. Stavros exploded with rage and was ready to find his brother and kill him immediately. Helena calmed him by reminding him that with their plan, everyone would suffer. Eager to begin, Stavros went to Wyndemere and spied on Stefan. Gia took a reluctant Nikolas to dinner at the PC Grille to discuss a career change for him. After hearing him sing at the Nurses Ball, she was convinced that he could have a bright future as a singing sensation. Nikolas wanted no part of such a career, though he was pleased that she thought he was talented. Gia wasn't quite finished coercing him and had a music representative come to talk to them. Nikolas was flattered by the man's attention, but revealed that he had no interest in a music career. Gia and Nikolas were surprised when Stefan came up to them and was polite to them both and wished them a pleasant evening. Gia thought it might be a trick, but Nikolas hoped his uncle was sincere for a change. At the Grille's bar, Stefan sat with Chloe and observed Gia and Nikolas. He confessed to Chloe that seeing his nephew so happy made him realize that he had been wrong to try and thwart the relationship. Stefan declared that he wanted to start again, not only with Nikolas, but as a person. To that end, he asked Chloe if she would be willing to consider him a special project and help him regain his humanity. Though wary of his motives, Chloe decided to believe he was being genuine. She went with him to Wyndemere so they could further discuss things in private. Carly was on the phone demanding help from Benny when A.J. barged into the Penthouse. He had a court order demanding that Carly reveal Michael's whereabouts. Alexis came in and Carly shoved the paper at her and asked for help. After perusing the document, Alexis coolly reminded A.J. that he had given up all rights to Michael and therefore had no right to make demands about his son. A.J. left, but not before warning Carly that he would get Michael back. Alexis agreed to help Carly deal with A.J., but only for Sonny and Michael's sake. Before she could leave, Carly was served with more papers, this time about her accident with Angel. Exasperated, Alexis said she would take care of everything since Carly served as a great distraction in her life. Livid that Angel would press charges against her, Carly asked Mike to drive her to the lakehouse. Angel woke up after having spent the night next to Sonny on the loveseat. She apologized for keeping him awake, but he told her it was the peace and quiet that had disturbed him. Angel asked about the quality of his life and he told her that he was constantly at war, especially with his archenemy Sorel. At mention of Sorel's misdeeds, Angel stood up and looked off into the distance. Angel confessed that she had been married and had been betrayed by someone she loved so she understood how Sonny felt about his wife. Twisting off his wedding ring, Sonny asked her if he could stay with her a little longer. Angel told him he could stay as long as he wanted. Zander kept guard by Emily's bedside and refused to leave even when Alan demanded it. Ned took Zander outside when A.J. arrived for a visit and asked Zander to tell him the truth about what was going on. Zander finally admitted that Sorel had sent men after him and Emily and Zander didn't trust anyone to watch out for her. Ned promised to put guards outside of Emily's door, but Zander didn't feel that was good enough. He asked Ned what he would do if Alexis was in danger and Ned reluctantly said he would do whatever it took to keep her safe. Zander spotted Sorel's henchman and tried to catch him but couldn't. Ned told him to sit with Emily and later commanded Alan and Monica to let Zander stay. Meanwhile, Sorel raged at his man for not being able to kill Zander and Emily. He wanted to make an example of Zander as to what happened to someone who testified against him. He also felt that killing Zander and Emily would lure Sonny out of hiding. Disgusted by his associate's failure, he put him on a new assignment. He told him to follow Carly because the surest way to hurt Sonny was to hurt the woman he loved.

    Preview: Carly reaches out to Melissa for comfort. Recap: Holding her by the throat, Luke demanded that Helena tell him what game she was playing with his family. Helena naturally claimed innocence and told Luke that she didn't have time for his paranoia. Lucky happened upon them and Helena bade him to tell Luke that she was a friend. Lucky stared her down and told her that she was powerless without her ring to control him. He threatened her life if she approached him or anyone in his family again. Helena was clearly rattled, but she left smiling slyly. Lucky was ecstatic that he had triumphed over Helena, but Luke didn't share his son's confidence. He declared that Lucky was a fool if he believed that he had won the battle with Helena. She had simply walked away for the moment. Luke softened when Lucky thanked him for trying to protect him and Luke asked him to simply be careful. As Stavros listened on the other side of the door, Laura told Nikolas how proud she was of him for being such a good brother to Lucky. She also told him what a fine man he had become. Nikolas expressed doubts about his own nature as he worried that he was more like Stavros than he knew. Laura assured him that he was nothing like his evil father and that the only thing she saw when she looked at him was goodness. Nikolas surprised her by saying that he was grateful to Luke for killing Stavros and insuring that he had grown up without the poisonous influence. Stavros seethed as he listened to his "wife" and child discuss him so hatefully. Helena found him and realized that he was one step from announcing his presence to Laura. She reminded him that they had a carefully crafted plan that they needed to stick to. Stavros was hurting because he wanted Nikolas to love him, not despise him. Helena faulted the Spencers for turning Nikolas against the Cassadines. Stavros told his mother to stop trying to turn him against Laura since Luke was the real culprit. He held out the vial of biotoxin and talked about using it against Luke. He decided though that his first order of business needed to be reclaiming his son--and then Laura. He knew that he could make Laura love him again because he would take away everything else until he was all that was left. Melissa went outside of GH for fresh air and ran into a sobbing Carly. She sat down and listened as Carly cried out her woes. Carly finally realized that she alone was responsible for Sonny leaving her. She had tried to blame everyone and everything under the sun, but ultimately, she knew it was all her fault. Recognizing her pain, Melissa soothed her by saying she had been in a similar place after Roy betrayed her. Desperate for hope, Carly asked how Melissa got past it. Melissa advised giving Sonny time and holding on to her love for him. Carly asked if Melissa still loved Roy and Melissa confessed that she probably always would. Feeling better than she had in days, Carly thanked Melissa for helping her. At the lakehouse, Sonny awoke from a dream having heard a woman calling his name. Unbeknownst to him, it was at the same moment that Carly was crying out to him. Angel emerged from the lake after a swim and Sonny asked if she had called him. She replied in the negative and sat down beside him on the loveseat. He thought it a dangerous pastime to swim in the dark, but Angel felt safe and protected on her island. Drawn into her description of the peace she found there, Sonny offered her his admiration. Angel fell asleep next to him with her head on his shoulder. Zander took the gun from Sonny's office and was ready to find Sorel when Alexis showed up. She saw the gun and demanded to know what he was thinking. He told her about Emily being in the hospital and was determined to seek revenge. Alexis tried to talk him out of it, but he wouldn't be swayed. After Monica had asked him to find Zander, A.J. burst into Sonny's office and told Zander that Emily needed him. Unwilling to be stopped, Zander left. A.J. turned on Alexis for protecting Zander at everyone else's expense--especially his sister. Later, A.J. left a message for Ned asking him to come home. Unable to ignore Emily's needs, Zander raced to the hospital. He overheard Alan telling Edward that Emily might be paralyzed and he ran past everyone to get to her. When it was clear that she didn't know how serious her situation was, Zander assured her that she would be fine. When she fell asleep, Zander cried by her side.

    Preview: Alan tries to comfort Emily in the hospital. Recap: The Nurses Ball was a mix of triumph and tragedy as the nurses and doctors were called away to the ER. A train collided with a bus and left several passengers critically injured--including some denizens of Port Charles. Still, the show did go on as Lucy rallied the troops to perform. Felicia was getting dressed for her act, "Way Down Upon the Swanee River" when Mac had to help out with the situation at the accident site. Left partnerless, Felicia and Lucy teamed up against Luke to persuade him to step in. Luke agreed, but changed the number to "Old Time Rock and Roll." Laura watched their spicy performance with a pained, but tolerant smile. When the number was over, Luke returned his attention toward watching out for Helena whom he was certain was lurking around. Instead of Helena however, Stavros was doing the majority of the lurking. He spied on Laura as she sat at the table with Scott. Nikolas, Gia, and Lucky presented their rendition of "Up on the Roof" much to the audience's delight. Back in the dressing room, the trio congratulated each other and they were jubilant until Helena strolled in. She was disappointed that Nikolas felt it necessary to perform like a commoner and asked to speak to him alone. Gia decided to take Lucky out of the room so that Helena couldn't get to him. Helena barraged Nikolas with her usual complaints and coercions, but he remained strong against her. On her way to congratulate Nikolas and Lucky, Laura saw Helena leave the room. She rushed in and engulfed her son in a hug. Neither of them realized that Stavros was watching them longingly. Alan and Monica rushed around the ER trying to help as many patients as they could. Everything came to a halt when Emily was wheeled in. They were stunned to see her and couldn't understand how she came to be injured until Zander explained. Alan tried to force Zander away from Emily so that she could be examined, but Emily cried out for him. Monica tested Emily's reflexes and was dismayed when Emily couldn't move her feet or feel any sensation in her legs. Alan ordered a series of immediate x-rays to determine the damage. Zander assured Emily that she would be fine and he waited for answers outside of her room. Alan sat with Emily and sang to her to comfort her and calm her down. Feeling guilty for her role in Emily's condition, Skye watched them from the hallway. When Bobbie showed Monica the x-ray results, Monica broke down in tears in her friends arms. Zander had a brush with Sorel's henchman who warned that next time Emily and Zander wouldn't be so lucky. Zander attacked the man, but everyone pulled him off and the man got away. Zander tried to explain to the police what had happened, but no one would listen. Determined to seek revenge, Zander broke into Sonny's office and stole a gun. As Helena walked down the corridor, she spied Stavros and hid from him to watch what he did. She was ready to follow him when a hand reached out and pulled her into a room. Luke wrapped his arms around her from behind and whispered that he had been waiting for them to have a moment alone.

    Preview: Edward and the men perform for the Nurses Ball. Recap: Carly came face to face with Angel after they were involved in a minor fender bender. She took Angel's information, but Angel never revealed that she knew about Sonny. Carly stormed into Alexis's Penthouse and demanded that Alexis represent her in a variety of lawsuits. She wanted to sue Laura and Scott for stealing her Deception shares and she wanted to sue Angel for hitting her car. Alexis examined the Deception contract and confirmed that the deal had been legitimate. As Alexis was berating Carly for her selfishness, Mike came in. He told Carly that he had heard from Sonny. Carly cried in relief that he was alive and she wondered if he had asked about her. Mike gently told her that Sonny wanted nothing to do with her. Carly finally realized that Sonny had left her and she collapsed in tears in the hallway. Angel returned to the lakehouse and told Sonny about running into Carly. He was surprised when Angel assured him that she hadn't told Carly anything about where he was. Angel said she had figured out that Carly was the woman who had betrayed him and she assumed he wouldn't want anything to do with her. They sat together outside and Sonny was clearly enchanted by his angelic rescuer. Zander and Emily waited for their bus to take off at the station. Sorel's henchman spotted them and called Sorel for instructions. Sorel believed that if something happened to Emily and Zander it would draw Sonny out of hiding. He told his man to take care of things on the bus. Lucy had superhuman energy in preparing for the Nurses Ball. She almost lost it though when she had a premonition that something terrible was going to happen at the ball. She found out that the ball couldn't be held in the Versailles room as it normally was so she moved everything to the roof of the hospital. Mac rallied the troops to help her get everything ready and before she knew it, the roof was decorated. Things were almost settled and perfect when all of the nurses pages started going off and they were all called to the ER. Since they were supposed to perform the first number, Lucy panicked. Lila suggested that the men perform the number instead--with Edward as the lead singer. The performance went brilliantly and everyone laughed as the men danced with purple plumes. Lucy made a poignant speech about everyone pulling together to combat the AIDS disease and she received a standing ovation. The ER was overflowing with victims from a terrible accident. A bus had stalled on the train tracks and the train couldn't stop in time. Alan was called in to help and Skye tried to get his attention to give him the letter from Emily. She already felt guilty because Alan had showed her such compassion and attention. Alan didn't have time for her though as the people kept coming in. Meanwhile, Zander woke up with a bloody head and searched for Emily at the accident site. He finally found her unconscious and buried under some wreckage.

    Preview: Carly refuses to believe that Sonny has sold her shares. Recap:An improved Sonny ate dinner at the table with Angel. The two bonded as she told him bits and pieces of her life--including the fact that she had been married. When she tried to ask about his wife however, Sonny clammed up. Because they were low on supplies and Sonny needed more medicine, Angel decided to take a trip into town. When she left, Sonny called Benny to give him instructions about the business. Mike happened to be in the office looking for word on Sonny. He snatched the phone away and demanded that Sonny tell him he was okay. Carly headed to the Deception offices and found out from Laura that Sonny had sold her shares of the company. Rather than believe that her husband sold her out, Carly chose to believe that Scott and Laura had concocted a scheme against her. Laura offered to let Carly work at Deception anyway, but Carly wouldn't hear of anything except a full partnership. Scott told her that she had ruined her own business and marriage and Carly stormed out. Her luck went from bad to worse when she tried to get her driver to take her someplace and he refused. He told her that Benny had given him strict orders that he was not to work for Carly again. Carly took the keys from him even though she couldn't drive and started the car. As she backed up, she hit another car. A woman emerged and Carly came face to face with Angel. Emily and Zander prepared for their trip out of town. Emily bought them disguises so that Sorel and his men wouldn't recognize them. As they tried the costumes on and laughed, Edward heard them in the boathouse and burst in. He was ready to call the guards to have Zander thrown off the property when Skye hurried in. She told Edward that she had invited Zander over. Stunned, Edward allowed her to drag him off. She persuaded him to let Emily and Zander have time alone since they were on the grounds and not in any danger. When he left, Skye gave Zander and Emily a lot of money for their trip. Emily embraced her and thanked her for being a supportive big sister. She asked Skye for two more favors. She asked Skye to deliver a letter of explanation to Monica and Alan. She also asked Skye to perform in the Nurses Ball with Alan. Overwhelmed, Skye agreed. Lucy ran around frantically trying to prepare for the impending Nurses Ball. She interrupted Alan and Monica's conversation to beg them to be on time. The doctors were discussing Alan's performance with Emily and Alan expressed doubt about not including Skye. Monica assured him that he would have plenty of time with his daughter once Emily was in college. Lucy was shocked to hear that Alan had yet another illegitimate child, but her main concern was just that Skye not ruin the ball. Luke headed for Felicia's with flowers in hand. He attempted to explain why he had hung up on her the day before, but he could barely get the words out due to constant interruptions. Finally, he was able to tell her that though he couldn't make a firm commitment to her, he did want to try again.

    Preview: Luke kisses Laura goodbye. Recap: Gia was stunned to see Nikolas and Liz in the same shower together. She demanded to know what was going on and wasn't satisfied with their explanation that it was a mistake. She called Lucky in who did believe them. Gia offered to make things fair by disrobing in front of Lucky, but Liz put the kibosh on that plan. Gia pretended to make peace, but drew Liz a cold shower as retribution. She told Nikolas that she wouldn't stand for any "hoochie mama" coming between them. Nikolas laughed and assured her that she had nothing to worry about. Mac and Felicia kissed, then gently pulled away from each other. They mutually realized that there was no fire left between them and decided it was time to end their marriage for good. Maxie and Georgie saw them and asked if they were getting back together. Mac sadly told them that he and Felicia were finished, but he told them that he would always be their father. He kissed them goodbye, hugged Felicia and left. Chloe stopped by with Felicia's dress for the Nurses Ball and Felicia told her about ending things with Mac. After calling Luke, who didn't have time to talk to her, Felicia was ready to swear off men for good. She later stood by the window and cried over the state of her relationships. The girls came downstairs and held onto their mother, offering her comfort. Scott waited for Laura at the PC Grille, but she never showed up. Mac came in after leaving Felicia and the two men commiserated over the sorry state of their lives. Both realized that Luke was at the crux of their problems with their women and tried to figure out the man's strange appeal. Mac wished Scott luck in winning Laura back, but Scott said he didn't need it. Mac sat outside in the rain and cried as he realized his marriage truly was over. Luke stalled on signing the property settlement papers when he realized that signing them would signify the end of the Luke and Laura era. They both reflected on how they had come to a point where they were ending their lives together. Laura assured Luke that she had had a wonderful time on the road with him, but it had never been enough. She had always wanted to come home to Port Charles. Luke understood and marveled that they had made a go of it for as long as they did. Laura told him that she would always be proud that he had been her husband. Luke told her that he no longer saw a little girl when he looked at her. Instead, he saw a magnificent woman. She declared that he had taught her all the magnificence she knew. Knowing that they would always be connected through their children and that a divorce couldn't erase the memories, Luke agreed to sign the papers. Laura cried as he signed them and handed them to her. He watched her walk away in the rain and she looked back at him one last time. He raised his hand in a final farewell and with tears streaming down her face, she waved goodbye.

    Preview:Laura delivers the final divorce papers to Luke. Recap: Felicia was stunned when she ran into Luke at the hospital and he told her that he wanted a second chance with her. Though she appeared to be tempted to say yes, Felicia told him that she had made her choice and her choice was Mac. At home, Felicia rehearsed her Nurses Ball number with Mac, but he sensed that her heart wasn't in it. She confessed that Luke had approached her about getting back together, but she claimed that she was determined to remain true to starting over with Mac. Mac felt that their trial period really wasn't working out and Felicia immediately sat next to him and started kissing him passionately. Gia expressed her reservations to Liz about being able to help Lucky and retain her relationship with Nikolas while they were all under the same roof. Liz snapped at her and reminded her that she had agreed they could stay. Nikolas and Lucky came in and witnessed the tension between the two girls. Gia later asked Lucky to explain more about Helena pushing him to get Nikolas and Liz together. Lucky confessed that though Liz was resistant, Nikolas had admitted to having feelings for Liz at the time. Lucky assured Gia that those feelings were in the past, but Gia had her doubts. Those doubts came rushing to the surface when she caught Nikolas and Liz in the shower together. Unable to stay away, Emily went to see Zander at Jake's. After receiving the death threat, he was less than pleased to see her. He told her that he was leaving town to keep her safe, but Emily begged him not to go. She read the note he tried to hide from her and told him that they had to stick together no matter what. Zander eventually agreed and took Emily back to the mansion to prepare for her graduation night. They talked it over and decided to take Skye up on her offer to help them leave town. Edward enlisted Skye to help him win Emily's favor again. Telling Skye that Emily was the light of the family, he asked her if she would keep mentioning Edward's good qualities to soften Emily's attitude. Skye reluctantly agreed, knowing that she was trying to send Emily out of town. Alan later commended Skye for deciding to attend the graduation party. He promised her that he would be there for her and gave her a long hug. Touched, Skye tried to rescind her offer to Emily, but the teens were insistent so she gave in. Her decision was easier to swallow when she saw Alan and Monica fussing over Emily. Scott picked Laura up for their date and was surprised when she kissed him. She thanked him for helping Lucky and being such a good friend to her. Before she could go any further, Scott told her that time was running out on her and Luke's divorce. Since Luke hadn't signed the property settlement papers, their divorce wasn't final. If Luke didn't sign within twenty-four hours, the divorce would be null and void. Laura took the papers to Luke and gently asked him to sign them. As he searched for a pen, Luke found all sorts of reminders from their life together. They reminisced about all the good times they had had and marveled at how far they had come. Luke was poised to sign the papers, but he turned to Laura in anguish and told her that if he signed, it would mean they were over and that was like seeing the end of an era.

    Preview: Sorel finds Carly in the cemetery. Recap: Edward hired security guards to surround the mansion and make sure that Sorel and his men could not get to Emily. While Monica found the measures excessive, she did agree that Emily needed to be more careful. A commotion outside disturbed them all and Zander was dragged in by two of the security guards. Edward wanted them to take him away, but Emily's suggestion was that Zander move into the mansion where everyone could keep an eye on him. Zander told her that he wasn't going to do that despite her objections. On the patio, Skye slyly suggested that Emily and Zander should run away to be safe and to be together. Sticking to his and Ned's plan for A.J. to get closer to Skye, A.J. had a private moment with her where he commented on how alike they truly were. He surmised that it might be better for them to work together on being accepted into the family instead of working at cross-purposes. Skye contemplated his proposal and agreed that she would give it some thought. Worked up over the possible threat to Emily, Alan went to Sonny's Penthouse to warn him that he wouldn't let anything happen to his daughter. Sonny wasn't there, but Alexis heard him and told him that Sonny had nothing to do with Sorel or Emily. At Lily's grave, Carly was devastated when she found Sonny's briefcase and blood stains on the bench. A shadow crossed over her and she quickly turned, hoping it would be Sonny. Instead, it was Sorel. She begged him to tell her where Sonny was and promised that she would do anything if he would take her to her husband. Sorel appeared to be interested in her offer, but then one of his men called him away on urgent business. A distraught Carly returned to the Penthouse to find Alexis and Alan lying in wait. She kicked Alan out and asked Alexis what they were going to do about Sonny. Alexis made no bones about the fact that she blamed Carly for whatever had happened to Sonny. In fact, it was Alexis's hope that Sonny would never return to his wife. Meanwhile, Sonny grew increasingly feverish and dreamt of Carly trying to help him. He kept trying to push her away and woke up to see Angel. Needing a distraction, he asked her to tell him her story. She told him that she lived alone and supported herself, but she didn't tell him how. He ended up knowing nothing more than he did at the start of the conversation, but felt that he could trust her anyway. When his fever raged out of control and turned into cold shivers, Angel slipped into bed with him. Melissa asked Roy point blank if he had any feelings left for her. When Roy hesitated, Melissa was embarrassed and tried to leave. Roy stopped her and admitted that he did have feelings for her, but given their past, he was determined not to hurt her. Melissa felt that they should start fresh as though they had no past. Nikolas worried over his financial straits when tons of bills came in that he couldn't pay. He was annoyed at Gia for racking up a huge phone bill, but she shrugged it all off as daily reality. Nikolas admitted that he wasn't ready for the responsibility of being a penniless person. Gia promised him that they would deal with everything together and the last thing she wanted him to do was return to the Cassadines because it was easier. Nikolas was grateful for her support and unconditional love, but still fretted over the future.

    Preview:Sonny wonders if he can really trust Angel. Recap: Under hypnosis, Lucky revealed that Stavros's ring was connected to Helena's programming, but he didn't have true knowledge of her plan. Lucky became agitated when Kevin's questions probed too deeply and he called for Liz. She ran in and calmed him down and Kevin brought Lucky out of his trance. It pained him when Kevin told him that he had admitted to being programmed to destroy. Luke wanted Lucky to stay with him at the club where he could be watched, but Lucky preferred to stay at the cottage with Nikolas. Laura was hopeful that Lucky was making enough progress to end all the craziness once and for all. Luke wasn't as certain and he believed they hadn't even scratched the surface of the nightmare. While he went to take care of some business, Laura rifled through her bag looking for something. Behind her, Stavros entered the club and watched her from the shadows. He flashed back to a memory of her on the island and it made his knees buckle. When Laura went back into Luke's office, Stavros prepared to follow. Helena and her men came in just in time to stop him. She urged him to use caution because she didn't feel he was strong enough to confront the Spencers just yet. Back in the lab, she assured him that she had a plan whereby he would be ruler of the free world. She had access to a biotoxin that would put the world at his mercy. Stavros agreed to her plan as long as his mother swore that it would happen. After having a nightmare about Carly, Sonny resolved that it was time to leave Angel's lakehouse. Against her better wishes, she got him some clothes and told him she would provide transportation off the island. When Sonny weakened, she assured him that she wasn't out to hurt him and only wanted to help. Having little choice in his condition, Sonny decided to trust her and he allowed her to help him back into bed. Carly asked Roy to help her find Sonny because she was worried that something had happened to him. Roy refused to help her because he felt she was better off without her husband. Carly told him that she would find Sonny with or without him. Roy advised caution knowing that Carly could potentially lead Sorel to Sonny. Carly went to Lily's grave and knew from the fresh flowers that Sonny had been there. She was horrified when she also found his empty briefcase and a blood stain on the bench. Melissa finally explained to Bobbie that she and Roy hadn't slept together. Bobbie told her that her relationship with Roy was over and therefore Melissa could do what she wanted with him. Melissa admitted that she wanted Roy, but she wanted to make sure Bobbie had no more attachments to him before she pursued him. After receiving Bobbie's scornful assurance, Melissa went to Roy at the club and asked him if he had feelings for her.

    Preview:Helena finally embraces her golden child. Recap:With his family standing by, Lucky agreed to see Kevin to try and reverse the programming Helena had instilled in him. Scott showed up determined to take Lucky to the police station to deal with the charges he was facing. Laura managed to convince him that it would be better for Lucky to have treatment first. Luke seethed as he watched them talking, but his focus switched when Kevin came in. He asked to sit in on the hypnosis session because he felt he could help Kevin ask important questions. During the first session, Lucky revealed that Helena had told him to hurt Luke. When Luke asked him if he had hurt Lucas, Lucky said he would never hurt his cousin. The last thing Luke did was ask Lucky to look at the engagement ring. When he asked what it meant to Lucky, Lucky replied, "Stavros." Laura sat Liz down to talk about the Spencer/Cassadine war. She wanted to make sure that Liz understood what she would be getting into if she remained involved with Lucky. Liz maintained that her love for Lucky was too strong to break and she would stand by him no matter what happened. At the cottage, Nikolas and Gia rejoiced that Lucky had been found and were prepared to do whatever they could to help him. Stefan made an unexpected appearance and though Nikolas initially asked him to leave, Stefan begged him for just a moment of his time. After having been chastised by Chloe, Stefan realized that he had made a mistake. He told Nikolas that he had dropped the charges against Lucky and that he required nothing in return. All that he wanted was for Nikolas to try and welcome him back into his life. He said that Nikolas was the only thing he had left in the world and he desperately didn't want to lose him. Touched by his uncle's seemingly genuine pain, Nikolas embraced him. He later assured Gia that he would be careful, but that he couldn't just dismiss the only father he had ever known. Bobbie was surprised to see a towel-clad Melissa come out of Roy's bathroom. She snidely congratulated Melissa on finally getting what she had really come to town for. Melissa tried to tell her that nothing had happened between her and Roy, but Bobbie wouldn't listen. Roy asked Bobbie why she was there and she said she had come by to let him know that Carly had explained what had happened and she understood the situation better, though she still didn't forgive him. Realizing that there truly was nothing left between them, she left. Roy put a picture of the two of them in a drawer. Back at the hospital, Melissa attempted again to explain the situation to Bobbie, but Bobbie countered by saying that Melissa was welcome to Roy. With all of the other nurses watching, Melissa said she was glad that Roy was available again. Though Tony thought it was too soon, Helena insisted that he release Stavros from the cryogenics chamber. She rejoiced when she was finally able to embrace her son after twenty years. After Tony examined him and pronounced him medically sound, Helena started to fill Stavros in on everything that had happened in two decades. When she asked if he had any questions, he wanted to know where Laura was. Helena was incredulous that they had been separated for so long and he only cared about Laura. Furious though she was, she turned it to her advantage by telling him that Laura was with Luke. She left the room for a few minutes and when she came back, Stavros had disappeared. He made his way to the elevator out of the maze and spoke only one word, "Laura."

    Preview: Lucky finally agrees to let his family help him. Recap: Liz went to the boxcar and found a dazed Lucky inside. When she questioned him about his whereabouts, Lucky had no idea where he had been or how he had gotten back to the boxcar. Liz gently told Lucky about all of the strange incidents he'd been involved in. Showing him the ring, she asked him again where he'd bought it. Lucky's lack of memory about the ring and everything else made him realize that he really was being programmed again. Liz promised him that they would defeat Helena, no matter what it took. Luke and Laura failed to break through more levels of the disks. Frustrated, Luke went to GH to find Tony. He begged his former brother-in-law to tell him if he was working with Helena. Tony feigned ignorance and told Luke that he had nothing to do with Helena. Luke went back to the club and Laura had received a call from Liz saying that Lucky was with her and they were on their way over. When Liz and Lucky arrived, Lucky admitted to his parents that he needed their help. They all embraced in a group hug and pledged to make Lucky whole again. Alexis barged into the Penthouse and was shocked to see Carly. She advised Carly not to make any more trouble for Sonny and Carly accused her of having feelings for him. Alexis thought Carly's jealousy was misplaced and the two would have argued about it more except that Ford and Taggert came in. They told Carly that they would help her make the deal happen if she turned in evidence about Sonny's crimes. Carly refused to work with them and though Alexis was glad, she told Carly that Sonny was still in danger because of her actions. Sonny woke up and saw the mysterious woman sitting beside him. She told him that her name was Angel and she had found him in the cemetery. She knew who he was so she hadn't called the police or told anyone that she found him. Sonny asked where they were and she revealed that they were on a private island that she lived on. She promised she would take care of him and though Sonny was suspicious of her motives, he had no choice but to trust her. Bobbie told Felicia that Carly was back in town so that she and Mac could halt their investigation. Bobbie also told her how Carly had tried to convince her that Roy's intentions had been honorable toward her. Felicia agreed with Carly's assessment and advised Bobbie to give Roy one more chance. Melissa woke up in Roy's bed and didn't know where she was until he came out in a bathrobe. Worried that something had happened between them, Melissa asked him for details about the night. Teasing her a little, Roy let her believe for a while that she had acted out of hand, but he eventually assured her that nothing bad had happened. He offered her the use of his shower and told her to hang out at his place for as long as she wanted. Later, as Melissa came out of the shower, Bobbie was standing in Roy's bedroom. Helena ordered Tony to release Stavros from the ice chamber. Tony didn't think it was the right time, but he knew Helena didn't care. He completed the last of the computer sequences and opened the lid on Stavros's chamber.

    Preview: Melissa reveals the depth of her affection for Roy. Recap:Emily called Zander in the middle of the night and asked him to come over. Zander met her on the patio and the two embraced passionately. Monica found them locked together and discreetly interrupted. She wasn't angry, but she asked Zander to go home. Alone with Emily, she asked how far her relationship had gone. Emily didn't come right out and say she and Zander had sex, but she intimated that she was being careful. Monica disapproved of Emily having sex with anyone, but she ended up just telling Emily to make sure she was safe. Sonny woke up on a boat and realized from the bleeding wound in his side that he had been stabbed. He dreamt of a woman in white who asked him to come to her. When he woke up, the woman was sitting next to him and he realized that she wasn't just a dream. Bobbie visited Carly in the Penthouse to make sure her daughter was safe. She was stunned to hear that Carly still believed that she could win Sonny back. Bobbie tried to make her see that Sonny would never forgive her and she urged Carly to move on. Carly refused to give up on Sonny and reminded Bobbie of her love for Roy. When Bobbie confessed that she and Roy had broken up, Carly told her that Roy had been a real friend to her. Bobbie wasn't as convinced that Roy's motives were so pure, but Carly advised her mother to give love a second chance. Roy took Melissa back to his apartment after her drunken night out. She kept bringing up their past in Chicago which prompted Roy to remind her that they weren't in Chicago and they weren't involved. Melissa entreated him to make love to her, but he wouldn't take advantage of her. Still, when she kissed him, he had a hard time pulling away. He eventually got her to go to sleep by promising not to leave. Alan found Skye sitting alone in the living room and sat down with her. He worried that she was thinking about drinking, but she assured him that it would take more than a lonely night to push her toward alcohol. He admitted to his own problems with addiction and offered his assistance in dealing with it. Skye appeared to be genuinely touched by his sincerity, but told him that her problems were her problems alone. Before saying goodnight, Alan told Skye that he would be honored if she would call him her father. Though she was hesitant, she eventually wished him a goodnight and called him dad.

    Preview: Luke and Laura celebrate breaking through the disks. Recap: Gia and Liz crept around Wyndemere searching for some sign of Lucky. They panicked when they heard a noise and accidentally knocked over the fireplace andirons. In trying to find a place to hide, Gia tripped a wire in the bookcase and got trapped in a strange room. On the other side, Liz was caught by Stefan who wanted to know why she was in his home. Gia tried to find a way out when someone came out of the shadows. She was relieved to see Nikolas who got them back into the office. Stefan pretended to be amused by their escapade and told Nikolas the only way he would help find Lucky was if Nikolas returned to the fold. Nikolas refused again and told the girls they were leaving. Before they could go, Gia stopped and told Stefan that he was a pathetic and evil man. As Luke and Laura spoke about Lucky, Roy came in and told Luke how Stefan had tried to steal the disks. Roy gave them back to Luke and reminded him to watch his back. Luke and Laura attempted to break through more levels of the disks. They celebrated their success when Laura managed to get them to another level. When Laura started to worry that they would never find Lucky, Luke held her and promised her that nothing would happen to their son. Melissa's car broke down at Jake's and one of the men inside volunteered to help her get it fixed. As she waited, she had several drinks and made friends with some of the guys there. Roy came in and found her playing a drunken game of darts. She reminded him of all the good times they used to have together and wondered if they could ever have them again. Roy decided it was time for her to go home, but Melissa couldn't remember her address. Having no other option, Roy prepared to take her to his place. Carly pleaded with Sonny to take her upstairs and make love to her. It appeared that Sonny was going to give in, but he ended up pushing her away. Carly offered him an angel that she bought for him in Martinique, but Sonny refused to take it. He gave Carly a set of the new keys to the Penthouse and then prepared to walk out. He told her she could stay, but he wasn't going to stay with her. Dissolving into tears, Carly screamed for him not to leave her. Sonny went to Lily's grave and asked for her help in learning how to forgive. He told her that he wanted to forgive Carly the way Lily managed to forgive his betrayal. He reached in his pocket and pulled out the angel that Carly had slipped in. As he fingered it, Sorel snuck up behind him and wished him a happy belated birthday before stabbing him in the back. Sonny collapsed in the cemetery.

    Preview: Carly tries to win Sonny's forgiveness. Recap: Sonny opened the Penthouse door to find Carly on the other side. Though he initially tried to make her leave, she insisted that he hear her out. She apologized profusely for betraying him, but told him that everything she had done was out of love. She begged him to understand and try to forgive her. Sonny reminded her of his past with his parents and how that set a life course that he had never been able to steer away from. He couldn't forgive her because he saw her as a constant reminder of her lies and betrayal. Carly took him in her arms to show him that their love was too powerful for him to dismiss. She asked him to make love to her and waited for his response. While at Kelly's with Gia and Liz, Nikolas thought of a way that he could help Lucky. He told the girls to stay put, but Gia was terrified that he was putting himself in a dangerous situation. He promised her that he would return and that he would be fine. Gia railed at Liz for not stopping him and Liz reminded her that Nikolas and Lucky were best friends as well as brothers. There was no way Liz could have stopped him. Calming down, Gia confessed that she knew about Lucky's programming and asked if they could talk about it. Liz filled her in on what she knew of the Cassadine's history with the Spencers, but neither of them could figure out what Helena wanted Lucky to do. Rather than sit around guessing, Gia suggested that they leave and take action. Determined to do something to help Lucky, Laura went to Helena's yacht and found Luke there with Felicia. Though she questioned why Felicia was there, her main concern was finding Lucky. Luke's plan was to murder Helena or at least threaten to in order to get their son back. Felicia was shocked when Laura agreed that it was a sound plan. Fortunately, Luke backed down and said he had to figure out what to do on his own. Felicia asked Laura why she was still so involved with Luke when she was supposedly over him. Laura reminded her that she and Luke were parents and their son was in trouble. She suggested that Felicia stop blaming her because things weren't working out with Luke the way she wanted them to. Bobbie found Scott lurking outside of Laura's house. He told her that Laura was with Luke and admitted that it was driving him crazy. Though Bobbie didn't believe that a past love necessarily equaled an enduring love, she encouraged Scott to fight for Laura. To that end, he went to the Cassadine yacht in search of her and found an embittered Felicia instead. She told him that Luke and Laura were together somewhere and it looked as though they would stay that way. Nikolas barged into Luke's office and offered himself as an exchange for Lucky. He wanted Luke to kidnap him and use him to get Lucky back from Helena. Though Luke balked at the plan at first, the more Nikolas explained, the more he agreed that it made sense. Laura came in and overheard their scheme and put a halt to it. As much as she appreciated Nikolas's offer, she refused to trade one son for another. Luke went so far as to thank Nikolas for trying to help and Nikolas said he would do whatever it took to get his brother back.

    Preview:Helena exerted her control over Lucky. Recap: Mac and Felicia shared a kiss, but Mac could tell by her response that she wasn't quite ready for it yet. Felicia later gently told Maxie that while she and Mac were trying to reconcile, Maxie and Georgie shouldn't put too much hope into it happening. Maxie assured her that she and Georgie just wanted their mother to be happy. While everyone searched the jail cells for Lucky, he went to Helena's underground chambers to see her. Holding out the Ice Princess to control him, Helena told him she had new orders for him. She played a game of chess with him and holding up the king piece, she ordered him to take the king to protect his queen. Knowing the king was a substitute for Luke, Lucky hesitated to take it. Gia and Nikolas raced to the police station after hearing about the fire on the radio. At the station, Liz freaked out when the police captain questioned whether she had aided Lucky in setting the fire. Everyone, including Taggert, told the captain that Liz would never have anything to do with a fire because of what happened to Lucky in the past. Gia and Nikolas offered to wait with Liz at Kelly's in case Lucky had escaped and was looking for her. Luke ran into Felicia on his way to the Cassadine yacht. She was shocked to hear that Luke was preparing to kill Helena. Luke wouldn't be swayed from his course because he wanted Helena out of their lives once and for all. As he waited for Helena on the yacht, Felicia crept in to try and stop him. Joining the party moments later was Laura, who was surprised to find them together. Alone with his constant visions of Carly, Sonny started to get antsy. He asked Alexis to have dinner with him and realizing that he didn't need to be alone, she agreed. As they ate, a sexy woman approached their table and hit on Sonny. Alexis accused him of trying to bury his feelings for Carly. She told him that if he still loved Carly, she would advise him to reconcile with her in spite of her misdeeds. Their talk was interrupted by Taggert who told them about Sorel's escape from jail. Back at the Penthouse, Alexis begged Sonny to call his guards back, but Sonny said he had the situation under control. Alexis called Benny and asked him to take care of Sonny. Meanwhile, Sonny had another vision of Carly that he tried to erase. A knock at the door distracted him and he opened it to see Carly standing there in the flesh.

    Preview:Stavros awakens from his long sleep. Recap:Felicia attempted to enlist Mac into performing with her at the Nurse's Ball. Mac was wary of performing and resisted all of her attempts at luring him in. When she said that it was a way for them to take a step toward a reconciliation, Mac became more interested. In the midst of their playing around, Mac got serious and told Felicia that he missed the more intimate aspects of their relationship. He pulled her into a kiss that she didn't break away from. Laura finally told Scott the truth about what was wrong with Lucky. She was surprised by Scott's calm acceptance of the mind control and she was grateful that he was willing to help in whatever way he could. She gave him a quick history lesson on the Spencer/Cassadine feud and told Scott how much all of their lives had been damaged by it. Scott promised her that they would deal with everything together. Keeping to her promise to do anything to save Lucky, Liz begged him to continue his therapy sessions with Kevin. She assured him that she didn't think he was crazy, but she wanted them to start their life together without any worries. Lucky was extremely resistant to the idea, especially after seeing that Liz wasn't wearing her engagement ring. Liz asked him again where he bought it and Lucky made a vague attempt at explaining, but it didn't make much sense. He told her that if she wanted to prove her love for him, she would never take the ring off. Under those conditions, he would agree to see Kevin. After she left, Lucky poured lighter fluid on his cell mattress and lit a fire. Luke and Kevin discussed Lucky's condition to try and figure out a way to break through the programming. Luke told Kevin about his maze dream and how much it disturbed him. Kevin suggested that the dream might be Luke's way of channeling his fears about his children's safety. Kevin thought that the woman Luke heard in the dream might not even be real. Luke went to Laura's house because he needed to see Lulu and be certain she was alright. He stroked Lulu's head as she slept and related the tale of how the Cassadines came back into their lives after her illness. He didn't blame her, but he realized that a chain reaction had been set in motion that was having deadly consequences. Laura was furious to learn that Luke had planned to kidnap Lucky from his engagement dinner. Her anger quickly evaporated after she received a phone call about a fire at the police station. She and Luke rushed out to see what had happened. Nikolas was furious with Gia for manipulating Emily into telling her about Lucky's programming. Gia calmed him by telling him that the only reason she did it was because she wanted to help him and Lucky. He confided that in addition to keeping Lucky's secret, he had also been afraid that she would leave once she found out how truly twisted his family was. Gia promised him that she would never leave him no matter what happened with the Cassadines. Helena sent her assistants off to make sure that nothing went wrong with Lucky at the police station. She sat with Stavros and whispered that all the plans were in motion for his return. At the sound of her voice, Stavros opened his eyes. Helena broke down in tears at this sign of life, but she bade him to go back to sleep because he would need his rest for all that was in front of them.

    Preview:Bobbie caught Stefan in the act. Recap:Bobbie walked into Luke's office and caught Stefan stealing from Luke's safe. He claimed to be trying to help the Spencers, Lucky in particular. Bobbie didn't buy his story once she saw the disks in his hand. She tried to wrest them away from him, but he overpowered her. Just then, Roy came in and slammed Stefan against the desk. He took the disks back and warned Stefan to keep away from Bobbie. Stefan left, but told them they had made a huge mistake. Finally having a moment alone with Bobbie, Roy took the opportunity to discuss their relationship. He believed that if she could place her trust in him and forgive him, they could work things out. Bobbie told him that her trust was broken because of his constant lies. She admitted that she hadn't always done the right thing, but she had tried to stay honest with him. Though he begged her for another chance, Bobbie told Roy that their relationship was over. Laura and Nikolas sat Liz down to try and convince her that Lucky was still programmed. Nothing that they said got through to her until Laura told her that her engagement ring belonged to Stavros. Nikolas told Liz that Helena had always said that the ring was meant for his bride. Faced with the truth, Liz crumbled and blamed herself for not seeing the it sooner. She told them that she would do whatever it took to save Lucky from Helena. Luke brought in Kevin to hypnotize Lucky and see if he could break through the programming. Kevin put Lucky in a trance and got him to answer a few basic questions. When he asked about Helena, Lucky froze. In his mind's eye, he was seeing Helena holding the Ice Princess. Kevin realized that he couldn't get beyond Lucky's mental wall. He told Luke and Laura that it might be dangerous for him to try again because he wasn't certain what he would trigger. Luke felt that there weren't many other options. Kevin told Liz that if she could get Lucky to admit that it was possible he was being controlled, they might have a chance to save him. Tired of being left in the dark, Gia sought answers from Emily. After apologizing for interrupting Emily and Zander as they kissed, she told Emily that she was concerned about Nikolas. She pretended to know about the programming and said that whatever happened to Lucky was upsetting Nikolas. Emily played into her hands by revealing the mind control and how they had all tried to help Lucky deal with it last summer. Nikolas, having figured out where Gia was, showed up and asked Gia to leave with him so they could talk. After Laura left the cell when she couldn't get through to Lucky, Helena came out from her hiding place. Holding up the Ice Princess, she told Lucky it was time for him to get out of jail. She handed him matches and lighter fluid and told him that he knew what to do.

    Preview:Nikolas and the girls conspire to help Lucky. Recap:Scott accompanied Laura to Wyndemere so that she could ask Stefan to to drop the charges against Lucky. Stefan was unimpressed by Laura's plea and told her that just as she had no compassion for him, he had none for her son. While visiting Lucky in jail, Gia forced Nikolas to tell Liz and Lucky about Stefan's blackmail scheme. Lucky commanded Nikolas to stay away from the Cassadines and asked him to protect Liz if anything happened to him. Before Lucky could stop them, Nikolas and the girls went to see Stefan. Stefan believed that Nikolas was returning to the fold, but Nikolas turned the plan down. He told Stefan that he would testify against him instead. Stefan was shocked when Gia and Liz said they would lie and say they witnessed the fight as well. Ned relayed Skye's plan of deception to the family. Monica and A.J. were jubilant at this proof of Skye's perfidy. Alan was more understanding and laid the blame at Edward's feet. Skye wandered in and tried to play the innocent, but no one bought it. Alan took her outside and warned her that trying to destroy the family was never going to win their support and love. He promised her that he loved his children and that he would love her as well, but she didn't seem too moved by his words. Emily and Zander basked in the afterglow of making love for the first time. Overwhelmed with love for her, Zander told Emily that he wanted to marry her. He knew they weren't ready for such a major step now, but he wanted to be sure she knew he was in it for the long haul. Emily was touched by his devotion and returned his words of love. Their afternoon was interrupted when a sulking Skye spotted them. After pretending to be friendly, she rushed back to the house. Emily and Zander hurried to get dressed since Emily was certain that Skye planned to rat them out. Sonny had another vision of Carly telling him that she loved him and asking for another chance. Before he could react to it, Taggert and Ford forced their way in. They had procured search warrants for the Penthouse and the warehouse and intended to find evidence to nail Sonny. Sonny told them to go ahead and do their worst and he left them alone. At the police station, Sonny spoke to the captain. He reminded the man of some past misdeeds and suggested that they would come home to haunt him if some of the heat wasn't taken off of Sonny. The captain agreed to take care of it. Sonny also asked the captain for one more favor and later, Sonny approached Sorel's cell without any guard present.

    Preview:Sonny is appalled by Skye's plans. Recap:Taggert interrupted the engagement celebration by placing Lucky under arrest. Lucky asked Scott to be his lawyer and they all went down to the police station. Luke stayed behind to have a word with Stefan. He threatened severe retaliation for Stefan's acts against his son. Stefan didn't seem bothered by Luke at all. Nikolas also attempted to talk to his uncle. He asked Stefan to drop the charges against Lucky. Stefan agreed to do so if Nikolas rejoined the Cassadine clan. Nikolas told his uncle that he was despicable and he had no intentions of being a part of the family again. Stefan's day got even worse when Chloe sat down after hearing his discussion with Nikolas. She told him that he was his own worse enemy and because of that, he would always be alone. Back in his office, Luke raged against all the Cassadines and declared to Roy that he intended to blow up the Cassadine yacht with Helena on it. Roy managed to calm him down by reminding him that if Helena died, whatever she had planned for Lucky would probably get worse. Luke eventually agreed not to kill her, but was still determined to help Lucky in whatever way he could. Sonny remained calm as Skye outlined her plan to destroy the Quartermaines. When she was finished, he called her a schemer and told her that he wanted no part of her plan. He was disgusted by someone who would openly plan to betray her family. Angered by his words, Skye raised her hand to slap him, but Sonny warned her that the consequences would be deadly if she did so. Ned, who had been listening to their conversation, also halted Skye's actions. Alexis dragged Sonny away from the cousins, but Sonny told Ned to teach Skye some manners. Ned promised Skye that now that he had proof of her machinations, he was going to be her worse nightmare. At the police station, Liz begged Taggert to go easy on Lucky, but Taggert claimed that the charges against him were serious. Laura asked Scott what would happen if the charges proved to be true, but Lucky couldn't remember attacking Stefan. Scott asked her what was really going on, but Laura couldn't tell him. Since they were unable to secure his release on bail, Lucky was placed in a jail cell next to Sorel's. Alexis and Sonny sat at the bar and she tried to get him to open up about his feelings now that Carly was gone. Sonny insisted that Carly meant nothing to him because she had betrayed him. Alexis hedged that betrayal wasn't absolute since she was considering forgiving him. Alexis eventually admitted that she still considered Sonny her friend and she was definitely his. As Emily and Zander swam in the Quartermaine pond, they were almost caught by Edward. He didn't spy them and they celebrated their good luck. Things turned passionate as they kissed and Zander pulled back, fully prepared to stop. Emily put her hand in his and told him that she didn't want to stop. The two made love for the first time. Helena lovingly spoke to Stavros and promised him that he would awaken soon. She was upset when one of her henchmen told her about Lucky's arrest. She told Stavros that as soon as he came back to her, they would take care of his insignificant little brother. As she put her hand against the glass chamber, Stavros's hand raised to meet hers.

    Preview:Bobbie confronts Sonny about his treatment of Carly. Recap:The PC Grille was the place to be for evening fun. Bobbie and Scott were there for dinner as were Mac and Felicia. The Spencer clan along with Nikolas, Gia, and Audrey were gathered for Liz and Lucky's engagement dinner. Sonny showed up with a group of his mob friends. Chloe met Alexis there. And Stefan camped out at a table for one. Bobbie grew increasingly angry -- and increasingly drunk -- as she watched Sonny laughing with his friends. She lamented to Scott that it wasn't fair that Carly's life was ruined while Sonny merrily rolled along. She stumbled over to Sonny's table and demanded that he tell her where Carly was. When he didn't answer her, she tossed her drink in his face and called him cold and unfeeling. Roy attempted to intervene, but she spurned him with a glacial glance. Luke took Laura outside when she was visibly upset by Liz's engagement ring. He assured her that he wasn't going to let anything happen to Lucky. He mentioned the word that had come up on the disks and Laura told him it was a Greek word that meant awaken. She suspected that it had something to do with Lucky's programming. Lucky followed them out onto the terrace and accused his father of starting trouble when he saw Laura crying. Laura told Lucky that she had been crying because he was growing up and she was afraid of losing him. Buying her story, Lucky hugged her and promised that would never happen. Things took a strange turn when Lucky and Liz stood up to say goodnight to Audrey. Lucky went into a trance and though everyone called to him, only Liz was able to pull him out of it. Luke and Laura exchanged a look of concern. Meanwhile, Helena forced Tony to speed up the process of Stavros's awakening as she wanted to see immediate progress. Tony reluctantly did as she asked though he warned Helena that once Stavros woke up, he might not be the same man she remembered. Helena ignored his warning and was thrilled when Stavros's hand moved, indicating that he was responding to the treatment. Emily and Zander arrived at the prom and Zander promised her it would be a magical evening. They immediately ran into friends of Emily's who took Zander aside and asked him for drugs. Zander insisted that he wasn't holding and asked them to leave him alone. Emily's girlfriends asked Emily what it was like to be dating someone who worked for the mob. Fed up, Emily and Zander got back inside the limo and took off. Wanting to make the night special anyway, Zander asked the driver to stop the car and put on some music. He and Emily danced under the lamplight. At the Quartermaine mansion, Ned and A.J. were stunned to learn of Edward's plan to have Skye get the ELQ shares back from Sonny. Ned followed her to the PC Grille and watched as she charmed Sonny. Sonny took her out onto the terrace and she told him that the Quartermaines had sent her to retrieve his stock. Sonny had guessed that and asked Skye what her plan was. She told him that she wanted to destroy every single Quartermaine and she wanted his help to do it. Stefan watched the Spencer's dinner progress in spite of Luke's earlier demand that he leave. He made a mysterious phone call and told someone that he wanted "it" taken care of immediately. Luke and Roy went over their plan to kidnap Lucky to make sure they had everything covered. After toasting to Lucky's future, Luke asked him to step outside for a father/son talk. Suspicious of Luke's motives, Lucky still went along with it. Before they could get to the door, Taggert showed up. He declared that Lucky was under arrest for assaulting Stefan.

    Preview:Zander and Emily prepare to go to her prom. Recap:Emily helped Liz get ready for the engagement dinner and Liz wondered why Emily wasn't going to her school prom. Emily revealed that she didn't think Zander would want to go, so she hadn't mentioned it. Unbeknownst to her, Zander was listening on the other side of the door. He asked Lucky how important prom was to a girl and was dismayed when Lucky told him it was extremely important. Gia wowed Nikolas by wearing an amazing dress for Liz and Lucky's engagement dinner. When they went to Kelly's to pick the other couple up, they found Zander stressing to Lucky over taking Emily to the prom. While Gia went upstairs, Lucky and Nikolas decided to help Zander make the night special for Emily. Lucky loaned Zander his tuxedo and Nikolas arranged for a limo. When Liz saw Gia's fabulous dress, she took her out in the hallway and played on Gia's guilty conscience to get Gia to let Emily borrow her dress. Gia eventually agreed and the girls worked together to make Emily beautiful. An excited Emily left with Zander for the prom. Luke waited at the PC Grill for everyone to arrive for the dinner. Roy came after receiving a call from Luke. Luke wanted him to help kidnap Lucky. Luke believed that the only way to keep Lucky safe from Helena's machinations was to keep him under lock and key. Roy didn't agree that it was the best course of action, but he felt that he had nothing left to lose so he said he would help. Scott was stunned when Laura came into the Deception offices looking as though she'd stepped off a fashion runway. He wanted to take her some place special, but she said she had plans with her family. Scott was a little put off when she wouldn't give him details, but she promised to see him later. Scott went to Kelly's for coffee and ran into a depressed Bobbie. Both lamented on the state of their love lifes and then decided to go out on the town to forget their troubles. Mac and Felicia shared a lighthearted moment while they spied on a woman who they suspected was Carly. The woman caught them and threatened to call the police. Felicia talked her out of it and Mac congratulated her for thinking quickly. The two almost kissed, but Felicia stopped and said she wasn't quite ready for them to go to that next level. Mac suggested a romantic dinner instead. Luke complimented Laura's flashy new look when she joined him at the PC Grill. Before all the kids could arrive, Luke warned Laura that Lucky had given Liz the ring that Stavros had given to Laura years before. Though Laura was shaken by the news, she was determined to keep her cool. As she and Luke spoke, they looked up to see Bobbie, Scott, Mac, and Felicia standing in the doorway.

    Preview:Stefan contemplates saving or slaying Luke. Recap:Luke woke up after being knocked unconscious to find himself on the ledge of the hospital roof. As he tried to orient himself, he slipped and was dangling from the ledge. He shouted for help and the only one to hear his plea was Stefan. Stefan was cool and casual as he watched Luke struggle for his life. He said he would save Luke in exchange for information about Helena's disks. Luke agreed and Stefan pulled him to safety. Luke laughed in Stefan's face and refused to tell Stefan anything. He did eventually say that Helena had stolen the disks from him before he could decipher them. Melissa and Roy were in shock after Bobbie practically threw them together and said she was finished with Roy. Though Melissa didn't want to talk, Roy wanted her to tell him about Bobbie setting her up. He wondered why she hadn't come to him with the truth. Melissa said that she didn't want Roy back by default, she wanted him to come to her of his own free will. Bobbie confronted Felicia about her part in the plan to find Carly without Bobbie's knowledge. Felicia declared that she, Mac, and Roy had Bobbie's best interests at heart. Bobbie couldn't forgive being kept in the dark about the welfare of her daughter. She was also angry when Felicia defended Roy's actions. Felicia was simply trying to get Bobbie to see the truth, but Bobbie was too hurt to listen. Roy asked for Felicia's help in understanding Bobbie. Felicia suggested that Roy needed to give Bobbie more time if he really felt that their relationship was worth fighting for. Roy wanted to fight for Bobbie, he just didn't know how to win her trust back. Bobbie found Stefan and Luke on the roof and after upbraiding Stefan, she asked for Luke's help in finding Carly. Luke thought it would be better if Carly and Michael stayed gone. He briefly told her about Helena's new war against their family and advised Bobbie to watch her back. The Quartermaines gathered for a board meeting and the first order of business was Edward offering Skye a position in the company. Sonny sauntered into the meeting and the chemistry between he and Skye was instantly apparent. When they voted on Skye's position, everyone except for Alan and Edward voted against her. Sonny didn't vote at all. Alan dragged Monica into the hallway to ask her why she was turning on Skye after she'd promised to give her a chance. Monica eventually caved and voted in support of Skye as did Sonny. They next voted on a development that Sonny thought would interfere with his business. Using his and Tracy's shares -- given to him via proxy -- Sonny voted against the development. The meeting fell apart within minutes when everyone stormed out in a huff. Edward asked Skye to use her wiles against Sonny to get his ELQ shares. She pretended outrage that her grandfather would use her in such a way, but she ended up agreeing to Edward's request.

    Preview:Lucky and Nikolas re-cement their relationship. Recap:Lucky and Liz stopped by the cottage to invite Gia and Nikolas to the engagement dinner. Nikolas halted potential chaos when Stefan unexpectedly showed up. Nikolas made his uncle leave and then warned Lucky not to make any more trouble. Gia and Liz left the brothers alone to talk and Lucky apologized for his behavior. He told Nikolas that the stress of worrying about Lucas had made him crazy. Nikolas pretended to buy Lucky's story, but his skepticism was clear. Meanwhile, Liz showed Gia her engagement ring and the two again agreed to a truce for their boyfriends' sake. Helena paid Laura a visit at Deception. She fingered her stiletto and threatened to repay Laura for destroying property on her yacht. Sonny walked in and offered Laura his assistance. After making some cutting remarks about Carly, Helena left. Sonny offered Laura a legal document naming her the sole owner of Deception. Laura didn't want to accept Carly's shares of the company until Sonny told her that he would sell them on the open market. An eavesdropping Scott told Laura that if she didn't take them, he would just buy them and give them to her. Laura was stunned to hear about Sonny's break from Carly, but she eventually accepted Carly's shares. Bobbie confronted Roy about his betrayal of Carly. He told her that he had good intentions and just wanted to keep Carly and Michael safe from the dangers of Sonny's life. Bobbie said she understood Roy's motives, but maintained that it wasn't his decision to make. She was convinced that Roy's actions had destroyed Carly's life. Melissa stepped into their conversation and angered Bobbie to the point where Bobbie admitted to setting Melissa up for a fall. She told Roy that she was finished with him and he was welcome to be with Melissa. Chloe found a lonely Stefan on the roof. He told her that he didn't want to be alone, but he couldn't change the course of his life. He also revealed his love for Chloe. She didn't want to trust in anything he said and essentially told him to lie in the bed he had made. Luke went to the lab and tried to convince Melissa to give him the sample of Lucas's virus. Before Melissa could refuse, Luke nabbed the keys to the drawer where the sample was. They were both surprised when the sample was gone. Tony came in and told them that the sample was on its way to a medical center. Luke didn't believe him and when Melissa left, he questioned Tony about his dealings with Helena. Tony coolly insisted that Helena wasn't involved. Luke followed Tony, but was clubbed from behind before he could see where Tony was going. When Luke woke up, he was lying on the ledge of the hospital roof.

Edward was proud of A.J.'s initiative and ran to tell Lila. When A.J. and Scott went to the Penthouse, however, Sonny told them that Carly had taken Michael away and he had no idea where they were. A defeated A.J. went back to the mansion only to have Edward berate him. A.J. was tempted to take a drink, but he hurled the glass against the wall instead. Bobbie reeled when Sonny told her about what happened between him and Carly. She attempted to remind him of Carly's mercurial nature and asked him to forgive her. Sonny refused and told Bobbie that Carly was dead to him. He also revealed Roy's part in Carly's destruction and suggested that Bobbie talk to her boyfriend. Ford and Taggert approached Roy about helping them by naming his source of information about Sonny. Roy refused, even when Ford threatened Hannah's job. Melissa listened from the hall as Roy told them that he would never allow them to use him as they did in the past. Melissa was stunned to hear that the Feds had used Hannah against Roy. She believed that it changed everything to know what his motive had been. As they lovingly spoke to each other, Bobbie came in and asked Roy when he was planning on telling her that he'd ruined Carly's life. An excited Liz showed Nikolas her engagement ring from Lucky. Though she was excited, Nikolas seemed less than thrilled. He said that the ring reminded him of something he had seen before. Later, Nikolas argued with Gia about the secrets he was keeping from her. Gia hated that he was keeping her in the dark, and she also hated that he had been out all night without checking in with her. Nikolas apologized for worrying her and told her that he loved her. She surprised Nikolas by saying that she loved him, too. Luke watched in horror as Lucky smashed Luke's laptop into pieces. Lucky went completely over the edge when he threatened to hit Luke with the paperweight he held. Luke slapped Lucky and eventually, Lucky came out of his trance. He warned Luke that continuing his vendetta against the Cassadines would bode ill for them all. Before things could get worse, Liz walked in to invite Luke to the engagement dinner. Luke masked his shock when Liz showed him her ring.

    Preview:Luke watches as a hypnotized Lucky freaks out. Recap:Luke had another nightmare about being trapped in the dark maze. As before, hands reached out to him and a female voice led him out of the darkness. He woke up to find Bobbie shaking him. She excitedly told him that Lucas woke from his coma and appeared to be cured. Everyone gathered around Lucas's bedside and celebrated his return to good health. Luke took notice of Tony's distraction and followed Tony out of the room. He asked his former brother-in-law if Helena had something to do with Lucas's illness, but Tony insisted that Lucas had a complex virus and that was all. Laura overheard their conversation and prayed that the Cassadine war wouldn't affect the children. Liz returned to the boxcar and this time, Lucky was there. She professed her concern for Lucky and told him that she and Nikolas were worried that Helena was programming him again. Lucky assured her that he was fine, he was just distracted by everything that was going on with his family. He declared that they should concentrate on their happiness and to that end, he produced the ring that Helena had given him. Liz was stunned by the ring's beauty and when Lucky slipped it on her finger, she didn't notice his odd reaction to it. Alexis gingerly stepped into Sonny's Penthouse when she saw that the door was open and the mirror shot out. Sonny appeared and pretended that everything was normal. Mike also showed up and he and Alexis were puzzled by Sonny's behavior. His demeanor became icy when Taggert and Ford came in and asked about their witness -- the man Sonny had tied to the chair days earlier. They accused him of witness tampering, but Sonny naturally denied it. When they finally left, Sonny asked Mike and Alexis to leave as well. He also asked them to leave the door open. Luke went back to his office to try and break into the disks. Needing the proper password, he typed in a series of words that Laura had suggested. He finally came to "Pandora" and that was the one that worked. It got him to another level that was guarded by a Greek word. As he was looking it up, Lucky came in. He wanted to invite Luke to his engagement party. Luke tried to hide the computer screen from Lucky, but Lucky looked at it anyway. Luke watched in horror as Lucky went into a trance and smashed the computer to pieces. Having been dragged back to the basement by Helena, Tony resigned himself to helping her restore Stavros to life. Helena gave him a series of disks and passwords that would aid him. One of the first passwords was "Pandora." After following the disks instructions, Tony told Helena that he had broken through the first level. She rushed into the freeze chamber, but Stavros remained the same. She railed at Tony and promised retribution for his failure. Suddenly, they heard the heart monitor beep. Stavros's heartbeat had returned.

    Preview:Sonny and Roy spoke about Carly. Recap:Helena held Lucky in her thrall by dangling the Ice Princess before his eyes. Lucky told her of his plans to marry Liz and leave Port Charles. Helena gifted him with a special ring -- the same ring that Laura reacted badly to earlier -- and told Lucky to give it to Liz. She promised that every time he looked at the ring, his mission and his future would become clear. Lucky slipped the ring in his pocket and Helena woke him from the trance. An unaware Lucky blasted Helena for interfering in his family and told her to stay away from them all. When he left, Helena laughed triumphantly. Nikolas and Gia returned to the cottage after futilely searching for Lucky. When Liz showed up, Nikolas took the opportunity to tell her that he thought something was wrong with Lucky. He alluded to the programming without openly saying it since Gia didn't know about it. Gia fumed against their secrecy, but decided to respect their silence. Liz didn't believe that Lucky was being programmed again. She suddenly thought of a place where Lucky could be and she and Nikolas raced to the boxcar. Lucky wasn't there, but they did find a photographic shrine to Liz that freaked them both out. After Skye alerted them to someone being in Emily's room, the Quartermaines raced upstairs to find Zander and Emily kissing on the bed. Zander apologized for disrespecting them, but he maintained that he and Emily were in love and they wouldn't be torn apart again no matter what. Alan told Zander that he didn't approve of him and was still concerned about Emily's safety, but he was willing to allow Zander and Emily to date. The conditions were that Emily could only see Zander with their approval and Emily had to move back home. She agreed to everything. Ned and A.J. threatened to destroy Skye if she ever hurt Emily again. They warned her that she could do what she liked to the rest of them, but Emily was off limits. Having received a similar lecture from Rae, Skye told them that she didn't take to threats very well. She suggested that they call people in Llanview and Pine Valley to find out the level of damage she could do. Having received a missive from Carly saying that things went bad with Sonny, Roy rushed to the Penthouse to confront Sonny. He asked where Carly was and was stunned when Sonny said that Carly didn't exist to him anymore. Sonny accused Roy of playing on Carly's fears and using her just to get to him. Roy countered that he helped Carly because her husband refused to. He tried to get Sonny to see that everything Carly did was right because she was trying to protect her family. Sonny felt that Carly had betrayed him and betrayal was unforgivable. Roy prepared to leave, but he first told Sonny that he hoped he would be happy alone with his gun since that was all he had left. Roy later asked Mac for help in finding Carly. Alone in the Penthouse, Sonny took out his gun. He paced back and forth restlessly and looked up when he heard Carly's voice. Carly told him that she knew he loved her and that as much as he wanted to hate her, he couldn't. She reminded him of the promises they had made before God and she promised to never leave him. She asked him to put down the gun and be with her. Sonny raised the gun and shot at the mirror, realizing that he had just had a vision of Carly. She really wasn't there at all.

    Preview:Zander and Emily finally reunite. Recap:Melissa went in to see Lucas and quietly slipped him a St. Jude's medallion. Roy saw her do it and thanked her for caring. After speaking to Melissa, he received a note that made him run from the hospital. Though Tony valiantly tried to resist Helena's machinations, he eventually gave in and asked for her help with Lucas. Helena gave him a needle full of a strange liquid and Tony wondered how he could be sure it wouldn't kill Lucas. Helena offered him no guarantees, but told him that if he didn't try it, Lucas was certain to die. Tony took the needle and raced upstairs. He went straight to the lab where Melissa was studying an analysis of Lucas's blood. She said that Lucas had a virus that she had never seen before. After receiving a call from Bobbie that Lucas was doing worse, Tony took the needle up to his son's room. He injected the solution into Lucas's IV and sat with Bobbie to wait for a result. Luke and Laura were surprised to see Lucky turn up on Helena's yacht. They questioned his presence, but Lucky turned the tables and wanted to know why they were there. He told them he had come to let Helena know that he wanted no part of her schemes against his family. He advised his parents to let go of their vendetta. Neither Luke or Laura bought his story and they were even more disturbed when Lucky told them of his plans to marry Liz. They begged him to let them help him, but he railed against all of his family and told them to leave him alone. Monica was disturbed to find Skye in Emily's room. Skye liked Emily's room better than the one she had been given and wanted to move in. Monica told her that she wasn't welcome in the house and she certainly wasn't welcome to Emily's space. Alan walked in and agreed with Monica, but he told Skye she could have any empty room that she wanted. Just then, Emily walked in and Skye watched as Alan jubilantly greeted his youngest child. A.J. and Ned impatiently waited for Edward in the living room. Once the whole family except Lila was gathered, Edward announced that he was giving Skye two percent of ELQ stock. Ned and A.J. were furious as they surmised that Edward was trying to get back at them. Edward claimed that Skye seemed like the only grandchild who was actually interested in the family business. Rae was furious that Edward was trying to buy Skye, but Skye willingly accepted the gift. Rae later told Alan that it might be a good idea for her to persuade Skye to leave town. An eavesdropping Monica heartily agreed with that statement. As Emily gathered things from her room, she was startled when Zander climbed through the window. He begged her to listen to him as he told her that he had been wrong to leave her. He revealed that he hadn't completed the drug deal because she had taught him that he was better than that. He told Emily that he loved her and that she was the only thing that mattered in his life. Convinced of his feelings, Emily kissed him. Skye lurked in the hallway and overheard their reunion. She smiled and went downstairs to announce to the family that a man was in Emily's room.

    Preview:Helena shows Tony her miracle child. Recap:Felicia and Mac were thrilled when Maxie came to the hospital with a present for Lucas. She wanted to give him BJ's teddy bear which Bobbie had given to her. Bobbie considered it a sign of hope that Maxie was there and she knew that Lucas would be alright. Alexis visited Sonny to try and offer him comfort about the FBI deal. She knew that someone had betrayed him, but didn't know who. When she asked where Carly was and he didn't answer, she figured out that Carly had been the snitch. Carly ran into Roy while looking for Bobbie and he asked her not to disturb her mother. Carly was sorry to hear about Lucas, but needed someone to talk to. Roy suggested that she wait for him at the Brownstone and he would talk to her later. Carly went back to the Penthouse and pounded on the door, begging Sonny to let her in. Alexis came out of her place and tried to get Carly to leave, but Carly rounded on her furiously and told her to stay out of their business. Carly collapsed into tears on the doorstep. Lucky and Nikolas continued to argue in the stairwell and Nikolas was stunned by the ferocity of Lucky's anger. Lucky blamed the Cassadines and Nikolas for all of his troubles. Nikolas tried to get his brother to calm down, but Lucky unexpectedly attacked him. Stefan happened upon them and pulled Lucky off of Nikolas. Lucky speculated that Nikolas was working against him with Stefan. Nikolas made Lucky leave so that he could cool off. Stefan used Lucky's behavior as an example of why Nikolas needed to rejoin the Cassadines. Nikolas still wanted no part of his family and demanded that Stefan tell him what Helena had done to Lucky. Luke tore apart Helena's yacht as he searched for some clue about Helena's actions. As he looked around, the sound of footsteps alerted him and he hid in the shadows. He came out when he realized it was Laura. She told him that she believed that something was wrong with Lucky and wanted to find proof. She recognized a chest that was in Helena's office on the island. She opened it and inside was a journal that she recalled Helena writing in to record all the major happenings in the Cassadine clan. Luke was stunned that Helena had recorded all of Stavros's life moments, but she hadn't written down the date of his death. Luke found a ring and showed it to Laura. It freaked her out and she started recalling specifics of her time on the island. She burst into tears and Luke finally realized how hard it had been for her to be with the Cassadines. As they held onto each other, Lucky walked into the room. Tony struggled against Helena's men and tried to get away from them. Helena wouldn't let them hurt him and she urged Tony to come closer. She showed him a cryogenics chamber and Tony initially thought it was for Lucas. Helena laughingly corrected him and told him that Stavros was in the chamber. An incredulous Tony looked down and saw that Stavros was indeed inside. He tried to tell Helena that Stavros was dead and whomever told her that he could be revived was lying. Helena told him that she was willing to save a son for a son. If he could bring Stavros back to life, she would give him the cure for Lucas. Though Tony was clearly tempted, he eventually refused to help her.

    Preview:Sonny rejects Carly and orders her out of their home. Recap:Sonny accused Carly of setting him up with Roy and the FBI. Carly denied his accusation, but Sonny said they were finished and ordered her out of the Penthouse. Later, after Sonny said goodbye to Michael, Carly finally admitted to setting him up. Carly argued that she did what she did out of love for him, to keep him and their family safe. Later, Carly put on her wedding dress and reminded Sonny of the promises they made on their wedding day. Sonny gave Carly a goodbye kiss, then watched as Johnny led her out of the Penthouse and out of his life. Nikolas tried to talk Lucky down from the edge of the hospital roof. Liz arrived moments later and the sound of her voice brought Lucky out of his daze. As he stepped off the ledge, Lucky denied he was about to jump off the roof. Later, Lucky overheard Nikolas argue to Luke that something was seriously wrong with Lucky. Nikolas pointed to Lucky's strange behavior in the jewelry store and on the roof. Luke placed the blame for Lucky's behavior on the Cassadines and ordered Nikolas to stay out of it. Lucky blasted Nikolas for telling his father that Lucky was on the verge of jumping. Nikolas countered that something was wrong with Lucky, who ordered Nikolas to stay out of his business. Bobbie kept vigil by Lucas's bedside, promising him Tony would find a cure. Meanwhile, Helena's henchmen led Tony to a futuristic lab in the bowels of the hospital. Tony realized Helena had poisoned his son when she said she would save Lucas if Tony saved her son Stavros. Meanwhile, Luke convinced Roy that Helena was behind Lucas's illness. As Roy and Luke visited Melissa in the lab, she found an anomaly in Lucas's blood sample. Later, Luke searched Helena's yacht, tearing it apart.

    Felicia gathered the girls to help celebrate Mac's birthday with him. In addition to a special breakfast and dinner, they planned a day on the ski slopes. Mac thanked Felicia for planning everything and she reminded him that he was her best friend and she always wanted him in her life. Ned was at the mansion when the Quartermaines got the call from St. Catherine's that Emily had run away from boarding school. Ned was horrified and admitted to them that Zander had skipped town. Edward and Alan were in a panic and Edward called the police. While waiting to talk to the Quartermaines, Taggert and Hannah discussed their relationship and Hannah was surprised when Taggert was understanding and compassionate about Emily and Zander's situation. Chloe ran to tell A.J. who showed up and provided the only voice of reason. He suggested that Emily hadn't been abducted by Zander, he figured she had run away because her family hadn't tried to understand her. Alexis was furious with Ned when she received a call from the police station and Ned told her he had informed his family about Zander. She reminded him that he had promised to keep it quiet and he exploded with anger and told her she was putting Zander and her career ahead of Emiy's safety. Bobbie lied to Roy about the nursing conference and told him that it was a good trip, but it had stressed her out. In truth, she had to hide the case files from him as they were tossed around her bed. Roy reassured her of his love and promised that nothing would come between them, but Bobbie couldn't help but re-read Melissa's statement that Roy had used her. Acting on Gia's advice, Nikolas confronted Stefan and demanded that his uncle tell him the truth. Stefan gave Nikolas the usual rhetoric about all of his actions being on Nikolas's behalf. Nikolas would have none of it and finally got Stefan to admit his misdeeds. Stefan begged Nikolas not to leave before hearing every detail of what had happened.moreless

    Laura gave Carly the news that there was trouble with their business associates in Paris and she needed to go there to take care of it. Carly was understanding and thanked Laura for handling the business so that she could be with Sonny. In a frenzy, Alexis told Sonny about Zander jumping bail. They both surmised that he had gone to California to get Emily. Alexis urged Sonny to put some of his men on finding Zander, but Sonny was confident that the teen knew he needed to return to PC and would do so on his own. Carly gave Sonny better news when she told him how much she loved him and how happy he made her. Stefan cornered Gia in front of Kelly's to advise her to stay away from Nikolas. Though she pretended to be unaffected by his words, she was happy when Lucky and Liz interrupted. Gia asked Lucky if he thought that she and Nikolas were as inappropriate as Stefan and Helena seemed to think. Lucky told her to stand by Nikolas and not listen to the Cassadines. Lucky went upstairs to find Liz in his bed waiting for him. They made love and pledged their love to each other. Liz made Lucky promise that they wouldn't let anything tear them apart. Helena went to the cottage to tell Nikolas the truth about Stefan's supposed kidnapping. Though Nikolas did not want to believe anything she said, he eventually had to concede that she could be telling the truth. Helena tried to use that to her advantage by saying that Stefan had misled Nikolas about her evilness as well, but Nikolas asserted that he knew that neither of them were good people. Helena suggested that Nikolas start fulfilling his destiny as the Cassadine heir and give in to what his heritage demanded of him. Filled with hurt and rage, Nikolas threw her out. Zander gave Emily a present of a bus ticket and told her that he had one as well. He told her that they could go anywhere she wanted, or he could cash his in and return to Port Charles. Emily asked him what he wanted and he said that he only wanted to be with her. She confessed that she wanted to be with him too and they left St. Catherine's together. After her confrontation with Stefan, Gia returned to the cottage to find a distraught Nikolas playing chess by himself. He told her what Helena said and Gia tried her best to comfort him. When it fully hit him how he was betrayed, Nikolas broke down in tears and Gia took him in her arms, giving him solace.moreless

    Felicia covered for Bobbie and told Roy that she thought she remembered Bobbie telling her about the medical conference. Felicia and Roy had a long conversation about he and Bobbie's relationship and how his past had affected it. He told Felicia that his life as a double agent had cost him many of his personal relationships, including his love for Bobbie. Meanwhile, Bobbie was in Chicago trying to find Melissa's testimony against Roy. Using subtle flattery and charm, Bobbie convinced the clerk to let her look through the files for the testimony. She finally found it and read a portion where Melissa stated that Roy had lied to her that he loved her in order to get to her brother. Helena tried to convince Alexis to stand with her against Stefan. Though Alexis agreed that Stefan's actions were reprehensible, she told Helena that under no circumstances would she ever side with Helena because of how dangerous and murderous Helena was. Alexis's calm demeanor deserted her when she found the note from Zander saying he skipped town. Suspecting that Zander ran to Emily, Ned wanted to call Monica and Alan. Alexis asked him not to do that until she had a little more time to work the situation out. Emily was caught by the headmistress as she was headed out of the window. The headmistress advised Emily that if her parents took her out of St. Catherine's, it would probably be for someplace worse. A bummed Emily accepted her fate and was lying on her bed when Zander knocked at the window. Ecstatic to see him, she flew into his arms. Stefan interrupted Gia and Nikolas who were on the verge of kissing. When Stefan started berating Nikolas for being with a woman beneath his station in life, Gia accused him of being a racist. She left them alone but listened as Stefan forcefully reminded Nikolas that as crown prince, he could ill afford to spend time with a woman he could never marry. He also brought up Nikolas's disastrous relationship with Katherine Bell as an example of how Nikolas didn't make wise romantic decisions. Having slipped into Sonny's hospital room undetected, Sorel was ready to smother Sonny with a pillow when Carly walked in. She freaked out and started beating Sorel with her purse, then threatened him with a chair to make him leave. She was incredulous when Sonny didn't want to call the police, but Sonny explained to her that he didn't think Sorel was working on his own. He needed to keep Sorel alive so that he could find out who Sorel might be working with.moreless

    Zander visited Sonny to thank him for all of his help and to ask him for a loan. He said he wanted to rent a room at Kelly's so that he could give Ned and Alexis their privacy.

Bobbie went to Chicago to look at the case files on Melissa and Leo. Back in Port Charles, Felicia asked Roy where Bobbie was and he told her that he thought she knew that Bobbie was at a nursing convention. Stefan asked Alexis if she would agree not to tell Nikolas the truth about Stefan's misdeeds. Alexis refused to lie for him anymore and told him that either he told Nikolas or she would. Ned comforted Alexis when she moaned about her twisted family. He assured her that she was nothing like the rest of them and told her she was the love of his life. After Gia had to hide when Stefan came by the cottage, she and Nikolas argued over when he planned on telling his uncle the truth. Fed up with her attitude, Nikolas told Lucky he was ready for Gia to move out. Lucky suggested that his brother was sexually frustrated and advised him to kiss Gia and see what happened.

Bobbie booked a flight to Chicago and lied to Roy that she was going to a nursing conference.

    Roy believed Melissa's letter was a forgery because she would have no reason to write him or to forgive him. Bobbie thought that Melissa might be working with Larkin, but Roy was certain Larkin was acting alone. Wanting to keep Bobbie safe, Roy told her he had to investigate by himself.

Ned was furious that Alexis was considering letting Zander stay with her. Alexis believed it was her job to ensure Zander's safety, but Ned didn't see why she had to be the one to take a risk. He understood her reasons though he hated the idea. Felicia overheard the cop who was on the take talking about his crimes, but he walked away before she could see him. Mac gave Felicia full access to the personnel files to try and find the crooked officer.
