On Sonny's private jet Carly and Sonny become scratchy with each other as they dig up the past RE: their unhealthy relationship, etc. Carly admits that although they were toxic together, she never regretted making Sonny Michael's father or having Morgan. Sonny nods; he may not have gotten everything right, but he wants to protect Brenda's son like he tried to protect his own children.
Meanwhile back in Port Charles Jax and Brenda both react to their ex's taking off together to find Brenda's son. Jax is on the phone with Alexis to arrange Josslyn's homecoming while Brenda suggests they should find out where Sonny went and go there. Jax warns Brenda that could tip Suzanne off. He reminds Brenda that Sonny and Carly will always have each other's backs; they have this tendency to fall into bed with each other, too.
At the hospital Shawn confirms Jason's fear that Jax will take advantage of Carly's absence and take Josslyn to the Metro Court. Upset Jason offers to watch Josslyn while Shawn takes a break. As Shawn leaves, Jason enters Josslyn's room and promises the little girl that he will help her stay with her mother. Later Elizabeth is startled to find Jason reading to Josslyn. The sight brings tears to her eyes and Elizabeth has to pause to compose herself. Jason sees her and asks if she is okay. Elizabeth nods, explaining that seeing Josslyn happy and healthy has been helping her deal with the loss of Jake. Later Elizabeth finds her brother and thanks him for implementing the transplant program at General Hospital.
Jax arrives to find Jason with Josslyn. Angry he orders Jason to leave, but Jason refuses—as long as Jax plans to take Josslyn home with him instead of letting the girl go home with Carly. Furious Jax glares at Jason, who has the audacity to physically block Jax from his own daughter. Jax demands to know what Jason plans to do if Jax doesn't listen to him. Ooh, that sounded like a dare to us.
