Julian tells him it was all Faison, but Luke tells him he needs him.. now that he is back in business!
He admits the real Luke Spencer is still under lock and key! Faison was a diversion to keep the PCPD off his tail (the morons)… he was never Faison in a mask and Julian is going to work for him again. Julian wonders who he is..?

Sam suggests she tell Molly anyway, after what happened with her and Jason – she has the right to know. “Know what?” asks Molly.
Ric is free!
Carlos points his gun at a bound and gagged Ric, Shawn tells him to “drop it!” – Carlos accuses her of getting in bed with the other side.
