He remembers he has a cousin who is a priest and goes to make the call as Lulu realizes her own family won't be a part of her special day.

Back in Port Charles Sonny urges Jason to confide in him. What is going on? Instead of revealing that Franco raped Sam, Jason says that Abby died. Michael and Sam flew to Chicago to identify the body. Sonny nods; he understands now why Jason is so edgy. He was worried about Michael! Sonny leaves to find Michael as Jason has a memory of Michael telling him about his rape in prison—the one that Franco had arranged.
Michael finds Carly waiting for him outside of Abby's apartment. Carly wants to talk to him, but Michael cuts her off. Abby is dead—and it's his fault! Carly comforts her son as Michael tells her what happened. He shows her a picture of a field of lavender and says that is where he will spread Abby's ashes. Sonny arrives to offer his condolences. Carly advises him to be the father that Michael needs right now and leaves. Sonny does his best to comfort Michael, but things become tense when Michael asks to continue to work for Sonny and Sonny declines.
