Jason finds Sonny moping in his bedroom. He is willing to talk business, but if Jason wants to talk about "that bitch Brenda" Sonny doesn't want to hear it. Jason urges Sonny to pull himself together. Anthony knows that Brenda is gone and will use this as a moment to strike. Sonny seethes at the mention of Brenda's name. Later Jason brings Sonny some water and a sandwich. He sees the unopened letter from Brenda as Sonny vents. He can't believe Brenda ran off with Jax! Jason corrects him. Brenda didn't leave with Jax, but she left Sonny behind. Sonny says he doesn't deserve anything good and doesn't care if he torches his life. This raises red flags for Jason, who asks if Sonny has been taking his meds. Sonny insists he doesn't need them, but Jason says this is no way to ruin an organization! Sonny finally calms down and gives a few orders to Jason. After Jason leaves, Sonny rips up Brenda's letter without reading it. He then grabs a bottle of water and his medication before leaving the room.

When Abby says they need to get back to work, Michael assures her that he took care of everything. Abby frowns; if she doesn't work, she doesn't get paid. Michael may take their jobs for granted, but she can't! Michael reluctantly agrees to return home if it means that much to Abby, but when Abby sees how disappointed he is, she agrees to stay one more day.
