Monica comes to visit AJ at the police station. Monica wants AJ to tell her that he didn't kill Connie. AJ tells her that he doesn't know what happened, because he drank and can't remember. Monica is furious and scolds AJ. She tells him she risked everything to give him a second chance and now he's thrown it away. AJ says he is sorry and claims that he isn't as strong as Monica. Then Monica asks what Michael will do now and all of a sudden Michael walks in and replies, "I'm gonna stand by my dad!" Monica says she can't see AJ in jail and walks out. After, AJ and Michael discuss his case. AJ tells Michael that Diane plans on pinning Connie's murder on Sonny. Michael isn't happy to hear that. He asks AJ if he really believes that Sonny is responsible. AJ replies that it's not about getting Sonny arrested, it's only about creating doubt. Michael tells him that Sonny is suffering and tried to kill himself. AJ softens and tells Michael that he is sorry. Michael tells AJ that there is no way that Sonny killed Connie and asks AJ to tell Diane to back off. AJ wonders if this is his only shot at avoiding a life sentence. Later at the hospital, Monica gets called to speak with one of the hospital board members. He tells her that they had an emergency board meeting about AJ's arrest. Then he asks Monica to step down as chief of staff in the interest of the hospital's reputation.

Dante calls Olivia to check on Sonny. Olivia is at Sonny's house and sees the newspaper with a headline about AJ pleading not guilty. Sonny hears her on the phone and asks what she is talking about. Olivia gets off the phone and encourages Sonny to take his pills and eat. Olivia steps away for a minute and Sonny slips the pills in his pocket. Then Olivia returns with food and they talk about what happened. Sonny takes some food to show her that he is better. So Olivia decides it's a good time to ask what he wants to do about Connie's funeral. Before he answers, Sonny answers a knock at his door. It's the paparazzi there to ask him questions about Connie. One of the reporters asks Sonny if he killed the woman that he claims to love. Sonny freaks and starts punching the reporter viciously. Olivia intervenes and pulls Sonny back into the house, but not before the entire scene was captured on video. Once inside, Sonny tells Olivia he has to get revenge for Connie.

Enjoy the final scene of today's show, plus tomorrow's preview below!
Have a great night!
P.S. Does anyone else think it's possible that Britt's baby is actually Dante & Lulu's child? Maybe Dr. Obrecht stole their embryo and that's what she implanted in Britt with Brad's help?!?
