12/28- Johnny bristles when Trevor preps him for his meeting with Moreau, a powerful drug trafficker. Jason knows the implications of Johnny's meeting and realizes it doesn't bode well for Sonny. Johnny makes it clear he means business as he asserts his newfound power.  Jax is disappointed when Jerry doesn't take him up on his offer to go into business together. Alexis tells Jax that Jerry is different from the man he was before. We see that Jerry's keeping a big secret from Alexis and Jax: He's actually Moreau, the drug trafficker.  Sonny gets a taste of Kate's high fashion world, including a co-worker of Kate's that hits on him!  Nikolas reveals to his family his medica condition, a brain tumor, which he indicates could be genetic. He's happy to once again be visited by Emily, who didn't appear to him while he was in Switzerland.

12/31- Sonny is out of his element as he suffers through an art gallery opening in Manhattan with Kate. Try as he might, Sonny can't escape his reputation and is arrested after assaulting a man he overheard badmouthing Kate.  Jax and Carly are miserable when a flu bug prevents Jax from attending the New Year's Eve party they're hosting at the Metro Court. At the party, Carly suspects Jerry is up to his old tricks when she overhears part of his phone conversation. Not wanting to spend the holiday without the man she loves, Carly leaves the party early to be with Jax.  Elizabeth's plans to spend a romantic evening with Jason are dashed when he calls her to say he needs to take care of business.

Epiphany is on the phone with Stan when her son gets into a fatal accident.  Sam confides in Lucky that Nikolas' brain tumor is genetic and remains uncertain about getting herself tested for the potentially deadly condition. Ric tries to charm Skye into selling Alcazar's property to Johnny Zacchara (and thus hurting Sonny), but Skye holds her own and remains non-committal.  Jason is frustrated in his attempt to find out where Sonny is being held after being arrested on assault charges. Spinelli and Max find themselves on the receiving end of the Health Inspector's ire after Spinelli is caught hacking into their system.
Once alone, Luke lights up one of his contraband cigars and promptly collapses.

1/3- After collapsing, Luke finds himself in purgatory court where he acts as judge, prosecutor and defender. Luke is sure he's done for when the string of witnesses, including his own family, don't pull any punches. Surprisingly enough, Tracy is the one who comes to Luke's rescue but he still isn't off the hook. Epiphany gets the news every parent fears: Her son Stan is dead. Jerry is privately pleased that things are working out the way he intended regardless of who gets hurt in the process. Although seemingly sincere in his desire to pursue a relationship, Ric may still be planning on taking advantage of Skye. Sonny is impressed when Kate goes to bat for him.

1/4- Carly desperately wants to have Jax's baby but her plans for romance are interrupted when she and Jax must deal with Michael, who got in a fight at school while defending Sonny.

Jason and Elizabeth are able to have their romantic rendezvous at the safe house after all. Looking to cause trouble, Sam tells Carly that Jake is Jason's son. Sonny and Kate are miserable being away from one another. Lulu is being held against her will--and the culprit is Jerry.  Alexis and Diane make unlikely seatmates when they're forced to endure each other as they wait for their plane to take off (they are heading to the Female Litigator of the Year awards, for which they are both nominated). As her patience wears thin, Diane takes her frustration out of the flight crew but Alexis surprisingly comes to her rescue. Unfortunately, the flight crew isn't happy with them and kicks them off the plane. Skye comes to Ric's rescue when he has his hands full babysitting Molly and Kristina. They grow closer and kiss, but Ric ruins the moment when he suggests the two use Skye's piers to become power players.

At the same time, Lulu is held against her will.  Unlikely seatmates Alexis and Diane are forced to endure each other as they wait for their plane to take off. As her patience wears thin, Diane takes her frustration out on the flight crew. Surprisingly, Alexis comes to Diane's rescue.

Carly confronts Jason about Jake being his son.  Skye sees the similarities between her and Ric and tells him she's scared by them. Although tempted to see what could develop between them, Skye decides to protect herself and walks away from Ric.  After getting kicked off the plane, a bickering Alexis and Diane set off for the award ceremony in Chicago in a rental car. The car breaks down and soon the two find themselves stranded in a biker bar in the middle of nowhere.  Trevor warns a defiant Johnny that they need to form an alliance with Mr. Moreau. Johnny has an unsettling visit with his father, who we see is slowly recovering from his paralysis.

Sam defends her actions, recalling how much Jason has hurt her in the past. Jason warns Carly not to get involved in his situation with Jake. Jax tries to make time with Carly, but she's too focused on Jason. Elizabeth can't help but be touched when Lucky tells her he wants to make sure that Jake is always loved and safe, regardless of any problems between them. Cameron plays with some matches, starts a fire in the trash can, then runs out of the house. Elizabeth chases after him, then gets locked out--just as the living room catches on fire. Elizabeth freaks, because Jake is upstairs. Sonny can't stay away from Kate. Tracy tells Luke she's going to monitor his every moment to keep him alive. Skye says goodbye to the Quartermaines, Jax, and Luke. Skye helps Luke escape from the hospital, and the two share a poignant goodbye. Skye leaves Port Charles. A man and his pregnant wife are turned away from GH because they lack proper insurance. The man returns with his wife, demanding care--or he'll set off the bomb strapped to his chest.

1/14- Jason pays Anthony Zacchara a visit to try and determine if he's getting his sanity back. Zacchara, who clearly is not sane, claims he'll be mobile again and will come after Jason. Anthony also states he did not kill Emily. Trevor has no intention of letting Johnny call the shots. Spinelli finally shakes off the effects of the cold medicine and hears the message Lulu left for him. Having no other choice, Spinelli tells Logan and Johnny about Lulu's message as the three unlikely allies join forces to find her. A determined Lulu refuses to give up until she finds a way to free herself. Tracy covers her worry with anger when Luke goes missing from the hospital. She drowns her sorrows in alcohol, and Jax has to help her after she passes out. Jerry makes mysterious plans. As the flames spread, a frantic Elizabeth races to Jake after crashing through the window and saves her baby from the fire. In the process of the rescue, Elizabeth cuts herself. An arriving Jason takes off like a shot when he learns Elizabeth took Jake to the hospital. At GH, Sam tries to calm Joe, who's threatening to detonate the bomb strapped to his chest unless his wife Angie gets the treatment she needs.

1/15- As Joe remains a literal ticking time bomb at the hospital, Mayor Floyd manages to call Scott and orders him to take care of the situation discreetly. Scott brings Lucky in on the case and tells him to take Joe out. Lucky enters through a stairwell and prepares to shoot Joe. Meanwhile, Joe, suspicious of Jason, grabs Monica and puts his finger on the detonator. Jason and Sam realize that Joe's bomb will go off if he removes his finger from the button—just as Lucky prepares to shoot him. Leo tends to Elizabeth after she collapses from blood loss due to the cut on her leg. Leyla, and later Robin, don't pull any punches when they let Patrick know they think he's disrespectful of women. Even Emily's presence isn't enough to calm Nikolas during another one of his episodes in which he ends up pushing Robin, who falls and bangs her head. Patrick tells Robin he believes he can help Nikolas' condition if he gets a blood sample during a rage episode. When Robin questions how he'll do that, Patrick states his plan to provoke Nikolas. Nadine seems very intuitive where Nikolas is concerned. Sonny, who's breaking the restraining order by being in Manhattan, barely avoids detection when an overzealous cop arrives at Kate's door. In the aftermath of their road trip, Diane and Alexis have formed a newfound kinship of sorts. Ric informs Alexis that he's leaving town for a while to think things through and admits he doesn't know what he'll decide to do with the waterfront properties Skye gave him.
