He was still afraid to come out to his adopted parents, who assumed they were a couple.. the two got just to make his parents happy. They loved Rosalie and they were ecstatic when it happened – they lost touch over the years and didn’t even know they were in the same town.

She remembers that SHE broke it.. but can’t remember why. She remembers she was furious, Nik says it was typical of their relationship, which was volatile. She says a woman was there at the time.. who was she? He pretends he doesn’t know, maybe it was a maid, but Hayden says the woman didn’t like him… she asks what the three of them were fighting about? He admits he knows who she is.. it was a woman he was previously involved with, and Hayden was jealous as she had strong feelings for him! She asks if the feelings were mutual?
Sonny vs Jordan
Jordan insists on speaking to Sonny about the mob violence, and accuses him of getting to the suspect before the PCPD could. She says the dept is working hard on finding his “coffee” shipment, and he claims he doesn’t have people killed and reminds her of her betrayal of Shawn. He says she knows who killed the man, and why. He is convinced it was Julian – he has no honor and is trying to tie up loose ends. He thinks the second hijacker will end up dead – she needs to find the hijacker before Julian does. Sonny asks her to leave, and suggests she should go through his attorney. She asks about TJ, and tells him he won.. he has payback for what she did to him and Shawn. He says it’s her own fault, but it’s not payback – he promised Shawn he would look after him. He and Carly have been pushing him to have a relationship with her.. she deserves it.
Julian shares with Alexis
Alexis interrupts an agitated Julian while he’s on the phone, she asks what it’s about? He tells her Lucas and Brad have called off the wedding because Brad is already married. Julian blames himself for not checking up on Lucas and wishes he could have been there for him. Alexis assumed he was talking about the recent headlines, he thought she believed him when he said he was done with the mob? Alexis reminds me of his associate who died before he could talk, and would be a complete idiot if she didn’t question everything. She has faith in him, but she will still be weighing the evidence. He holds her hands and says this time is different – things have changed since he lost his baby and her. He doesn’t want to risk losing her again. He thanks her for sticking by him, and doesn’t understand what happened to his baby.. he assumed Olivia was making it all up, but he knew the baby was gone once Obrecht showed him the ashes. He never got a chance with the one child he would have a hand in raising. Alexis knows how hard it is on him, Julian says how amazing it would have been to raise him. He feels lucky to have Lucas and Sam in his life, but can’t help but dream about what might have been.
Dante and Lulu read to Rocco and tell him he has an uncle who is a baby.. she wishes Uncle Leo could be in his life, and hopes Olivia makes the right decision.
Alexis tells Julian she adores him and wants to be there for him – he says he never would have made it through losing the baby without her. There’s a knock on the door.. it’s Olivia!
