This past week’s events in Port Charles started with a goodbye and ended with a stabbing and death.  Let’s see what else happened in town this week.

Luke was on the docks and Sonny‘s men thought he may be a danger to Sonny. They called Sonny and he met with Luke who told him he was leaving Port Charles. They talked about Frank Smith and how they met. Luke gives Sonny the gun he used to kill Frank this last time. Will Frank escape death another time? After talking, they hug, and Sonny wishes Luke good luck. He asks Sonny to watch over Rocco and Lulu and tell Lulu that he loves her. Lulu appears out of the mist asks him to tell her himself. A tearful goodbye between Luke and Lulu required tissues for Luke, Lulu, and me. When Luke said “Goodbye Port Charles and Good Luck to you”, even I needed a tissue for the end of an era.

Franco and Denise talk with Kiki. Denise begs Franco not to tell Kiki about her and Morgan. Kiki says she knows that her aunt and boyfriend would not hurt her in anyway. After she tells them she is going out of town for a few days, Franco tells Denise to stay away from Morgan. Denise calls Nina and invites her to breakfast the next morning.

Nina comes to see Denise at Julian’s apartment. Denise tells Nina that Franco is not over Nina. She tells Nina that she should go get Franco before he goes to someone else.

Nathan sees the baby blanket and wants to take it in for evidence in Avery’s kidnapping case. Ric refuses to give it up without a warrant. He also wants to keep everyone away from Nina so he and Madeline can continue to torment her. Nathan goes to see Jordan and tells her that he feels Ric is framing his sister. Jordan tells him that he needs to get a warrant so they can either find Nina innocent or guilty.
