Sonny sits down in the waiting room with Elizabeth. She wonders if Mikes procedure didnt go well. Sonny saw a patient that is here like his father. It is no way of living. His father wouldnt have wanted it. He cannot do nothing for his father. Sonny thinks up until the last few days his father is still in there. Avery came to visit him and they watched baseball together. If he doesnt do everything he can to make sure to keep him alive then he will feel like he failed him. Like he failed himself. Elizabeth doesnt think that this is the worst choice he could make.
Neil was trying to process losing his license. He is angry of himself for taking advantage of her after she was his patient. Neil saw himself as the opposite of impulsive. Alexis will not accept this.
Sam thinks that he must have something that he thinks she wants. Valentin knows that she is not allowed to associate with any known felons. Her parole officer enforces that very strongly. Sam wonders how he knows this. Valentin has a way to help her out. That is all that matters.
Nelle will let the judge know that they arent letting her see Wiley. Michael never said that she couldnt see him. Willow thinks that they just want what is best for Wiley. As his parents they thinks that his schedule is more important than her own. Nelle thinks that this house is not a safe space for her. She will not stand here for hours. Michael guesses they can get a new day set up then. Nelle asks if they can give him this bear. It can remind him of her. They tell her that the kangaroo is his favorite. Nelle can only imagine what they tell Wiley about her. She is some wicked witch. It really isnt about her though. It is about Willow and how she wants to be a perfect mother. Nelle is Wileys real mother and that will never change ever.
Sonny knows that she and Jason have spoken about what goes on with Mike. He is just asking what she thinks personally. Elizabeth thinks that he needs to make the best choice that he can for Mike. It isnt selfish if he thinks that it is the right choice. Sonny just doesnt. Elizabeth thinks that all he saw was a shell of a man. There was no spark left inside. He cannot feed himself or enjoy his food. He cannot even smile. He will not go to another baseball game. He will not enjoy his grandchildren or his son. Sonny thinks that he has moments like with Avery. He fed him pasta. Elizabeth thinks that even with a feeding tube his dad is going to die. Elizabeth thinks that his heart will eventually give out. His heart is suffering. He should know what his dad should want. This is about Mike. Elizabeth knows years ago that Lucky told her something that Mary Mae Ward used to say. She would say that grace is not something that you get when you win. Grace comes when you are forced to make difficult choices. Ones that often hurt them but help their loved ones.
Alexis lost her license and a career that she loved. She is having a hard time dealing with it. She needs time. Alexis cannot deal with this. Neil wonders if they could see each other on occasion. Alexis will think about it. She thanks him for the DVD. He wants her to enjoy it. He leaves. Alexis sighs.
Valentin knows people that can get her a new parole officer. Sam asks if all she has to do is give him Danny and Scouts voting proxy. Sam wonders why she should believe him. Sam thinks that there is a catch in here somewhere. Valentin tells her to think about it. He will be speaking with her soon.
Carly and Jason find Sonny and Elizabeth. Sonny tells Carly that he changed his mind. He wants the doctors to keep his father comfortable. No feeding tube. He needed to figure this out on himself with a little help for his friend. Carly thinks that Mike would thank him. Sonny needs to go speak with the doctors. Carly thinks whatever Elizabeth said she thanks her. Elizabeth will miss Mike. Jason thinks they all will. Carly guesses they have to figure out how to say goodbye.
Nelle has the tracking device on Wiley now.
Willow thinks that a day in the park will be a perfect antidote for things.
Nelle takes out an envelope with new passports.
Willow thinks that they could go on the big slide after that. Willow is not fearless. Michael thinks she is brave enough to do the right thing even if it scares her. Michael thinks that she will always be Wileys real mother.
Carly and Jason watch as Mike and Sonny sit together. Sonny asks Mike how it is going. Sonny talked with the doctor. There is not going to be a procedure. Whenever he chooses to go to sleep it will be because he chooses. His family loves him a great deal. He loves him too. His love for him will last forever. If he doesnt want to stick around he doesnt have to. Sonny tells him if he is ready to go then he can go. Mike cries and nods.
