Spinelli began his day helping out Carly on her scheme to get out of town with Morgan. The whole event upsets him, so he goes to council with Maximista at Crimson about how he could possibly help in such a depressing situation. Sonny walks into the office and Spinelli tries to give his opinion on the subject of Sonny's paternal rights. Sonny doesn't take his advice kindly and throws The Jackal into a post, knocking Spinelli's head on the structure so hard he can't walk straight.
Maxie immediately jumps in to yell at Sonny for attacking Spinelli. She takes him back to her house and tells him that she will take care of him all night in case he has a concussion. Spinelli melts at the idea of being with her all evening.
When Spinelli awakens the next morning in Maxie's bed, the details of what transpired the night before are fuzzy to say the least. Spinelli asks what happened between the two of them and why he would be in her bed. Some things get...lost in translation. Spinelli thinks he and Maxie went "beyond friendship", when in reality nothing happened and Maxie had simply been tending to his possible concussion all night. Mac comes into Maxie's room and discovers The Jackal snuggled into Maxie's bed. Chaos ensues and Spinelli is thrown out of the house before he can get a more detailed explanation of what really happened.
Sam finds Spinelli confused and muttering to himself on the docks. She asks what is wrong and Spinelli explains to her that he thinks he might have slept with Maxie but can't remember. Sam goes to find Maxie and discovers that nothing at all happened. She meets Spinelli later at the penthouse to break the news to him that he didn't have any sort of "relations" with Maxie at all. He decides that he is pretty pathetic, being in the same bed with his love all night and not even kissing her. He fears it will be a hopeless task trying to get Maxie to see him as a guy, a love interest. Sam realizes that all Spinelli needs is a woman's perspective. She agrees to take him under her wing to help him get the girl.
Spinelli's hair gave Dillon Quartermaine's famous locks a run for their money.
