Michael tells him he has his back and asks how he ended up at Sonny’s after he dropped him off at Carly’s place? He explained he stayed out all night and had too much to drink – he went straight to Sonny’s, and he was amazing. He talked him down and really came through for him.. he reminds Michael that he isn’t going to give up on either of them. And Sonny still loves him. Dante returns, worried there’s no sign of Charlie.. or their father. They find it odd that he didn’t take any men with him.. Morgan says it’s a bad sign.
Drama at the docks!

Charlie claims he said Julian gave him orders so the DA would let him go back out on the street. Sonny tells him to stop wasting his time, get Julian in here! He tells Carlie to untie TJ and let them leave, otherwise they will keep playing the game until Julian does or doesn’t show up. He snaps and yells “are you gonna shoot me.. or not??”. He continues to question Charlie, who says he’s going to be dead, then he turns the gin on TJ, maybe that’s the only option left to him. Sonny tells his to wait for further instructions, but Charlie notices Sonny is more nervous when he points the gun at TJ! Sonny tells him he wants to walk away with his life – he will untie TJ and let him leave, and Sonny will be his only hostage. He lunges at Charlie to grab the gun and the two men struggle.
