On May 29, it was revealed that the real Luke is still being held at Miscavige. "Evil Luke" and Julian frame Ric Lansing as head of the Jerome mob family and leaves town to enjoy his honeymoon.


On June 19, Tracy returned alone from their honeymoon.

While "Evil Luke" is away, he has his associate, Mickey Diamond acting as his proxy. After Julian kills Mickey, he contacts "Evil Luke" and confronts him about the bomb that blew up Alexis' house. "Evil Luke" tells Julian if he gives up what he knows about Sonny Corinthos, then they will have a truce. Julian refuses and hangs up on "Evil Luke". Ava contacted "Evil Luke" and proposed a partnership between the two of them. She reassured "Evil Luke" that she had the means to bring Sonny down and would get a hold of it soon. "Evil Luke's" plans to gain control of ELQ were foiled when Alice Gunderson told Michael Corinthos III that Tracy and "Luke" were conspiring to take ELQ, so Michael fired her. In retaliation, "Evil Luke" ordered Ava to kill Michael. When Ava couldn't go through with it, "Evil Luke" sent his henchmen, Kobe, to kill Michael. The plan didn't work out for "Evil Luke" when Michael killed Kobe.
