Patrick tells Carly the truth
Carly is sitting at the bar at the Floating Rib, when Patrick sits down beside her and orders a double. She asks if it’s about Robin? Nope, it’s Sam. He tells her they were becoming close but Sam shut it down because he lied about Jason. He tells her Jason wasn’t dead when he was kicked into the harbor. She is angry at herself for bailing.. and upset that Robin couldn’t save him. What she wouldn’t give to see his face again! Carly understands why he didn’t tell anyone.. it was to protect Robin. He tells her maybe Sam was right that it wasn’t his place to keep it from her.. Carly tells Patrick he and Sam understand each other. She tells him not to give up.. he asks just like she is not going to give up on Sonny?
Sam is grabbed from behind and dragged out of the station, held just out of sight where Faison is being loaded into the van to Pentonville. Anna supervises the transfer, and asks Nathan if he has heard from Liesl, surprised she isn’t there. Just then, shots ring out and the masked man drags Sam behind the van. He tells them to do what he says or the next bullet is hers! They ask what he wants.. Sam yells at them not to give in. They tell him to let go out of the hostage – a shot rings out, Nathan falls back, hit in shoulder! He demands the keys to the van, then drives away while the police continue to shoot.. Anna has Sam put pressure on Nathan’s shoulder, while she wants the van found.
At Elizabeth’s house, Nik calls for protection against Helena, and wonders why she would have talked to Jake? He asks Liz what she is doing, allowing a complete stranger to stay with her?? He knows she has a huge heart, it’s why he loves her.. but what if he is a homicidal maniac? She insists she knows what she’s doing – and he’s one to talk as he put his faith in Britt again, and was taken in a second time. He leaves to return back to the island..

Britt tells him she doesn’t live with Brad anymore, he replies he will join the merchant marines.. see the world.. “over my dead body” says Helena. Spencer tells her to butt out… “who’s this broad?”.. Liesl tells her she is his great-grandmother.. she chides his manners and tells him to stand up straight, he is her heir! He won’t be leaving town. Britt says he has to go back to Windermere. Family belongs together, he needs to make up with his dad as she is going away. She loves him, and will miss him and his excellent taste in jewelry! She gives him back the engagement ring and tells him to give it to some lucky girl one day, and to be happy. She promises to come back one day and they hug..
