“It 's ok, I know you two ca-”
A knock on Mike 's door interrupts their conversation. They all look over to see Chief Dodds by the doorway.
“I see you have company,” the elder Dodds quips. “Not interrupting anything, am I?”
“Mmm, actually we were about to leave,” Rafael side eyes Chief Dodds.
Sonny reluctantly agrees, “Mi-Sahge, if you need anything feel free to ask.”
“I will,” he says as Sonny and Rafael exit the room.
A few days later, Sonny was delighted when he found out Mike could eat other foods and he made sure to bring him homemade food whenever he could.
“I almost forgot how good your cooking was,” Mike digs into a slice of lasagna. “You have no clue how long I 've been wanting to have actual food.”
“I saw the look you gave every time they brought your lunch,” Sonny smiles.

It takes a couple of hours for Sonny and Rafael to decorate their apartment with “Welcome Back SGT Dodds” banners and other decorations.

Amanda arrived first with Jesse in tow then Liv, Tucker, and Noah and finally Fin. Sonny purposely had them come over an hour prior before Mike so they could truly surprise him.
“It smells so good in here, Sonny. Too bad we can 't eat now,” Amanda says.
“There are snacks on the other table,” Rafael points out before he eats a handful of plantain chips.
Noah looks up at Sonny and raises his hands to him, “Uncah Sonny!”
“Hey there,” Sonny lifts him up, grinning.
Noah giggles, “Are we gonna hide?”
Carisi shakes his head, “No, we 're gonna wait for Uncle Mike.” He puts Noah down.
“Ok,” Noah seemed satisfied with that answer as he goes back to Benson and clings to her leg.
Ten minutes later there 's a knock on the door and Sonny opens it. “Mike! Come on in!”
“Welcome back!” Everyone shouts as soon as Mike steps through the door.
“Hey,” Mike greets everyone. “You weren 't kidding about this at all, Sonny.”
