This week, Alexis Davis and her new husband, Julian Jerome have quite a rocky time. Julian finally comes clean when confronted with Alexis’ accusations. Alexis already knew long before that Julian ordered that Carlos Rivera kill rival Duke Lavery, but Alexis thought he’d given all that up when they’d married. Alexis confronts Julian and he finally admits that he did indeed order a hit on the witness who recently came forward who saw Duke’s murder take place, AND admitted to having killed Carlos himself with the cursed dagger that Helena Cassadine left to Alexis in her will; the weapon Helena used to slit the throat of Alexis’ mother decades ago.
Rival mob-boss Sonny Corinthos arrives in the middle of this emotional wreckage, and Alexis defends Julian. Sonny tries to cajole Alexis into leaving with him and going to the police, disowns Alexis when she refuses, and also beats Julian against the backs of the knees with a fireplace poker.
After Sonny leaves, Alexis helps Julian up the stairs, assures him she’ll burn the blood spattered shirt; the one piece of evidence linking Julian to the crime, but at the last minute, stuffs it away, hidden.
Dr. Kevin Collins and Laura Spencer continue their hunt for the meaning behind the cryptic message left in what Helena Cassadine bequeathed to Laura.

The realtor tells them that the owners of the property are Lloyd and Lucy Johnson, old aliases used by Luke and Laura. What does it mean?
