THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Hi. Come in, please. Okay. I-I just got to get my keys. Hey, joss. Cameron, have you seen my — mom. Oh, mrs. Baldwin. Sorry. Didn’t mean to interrupt. Not that I’m complaining, but this is the second time we’ve worked remotely. You sure we can keep the gallery closed this much? If a client needs me, they can call me. Besides, before you know it, you’ll be off at pcu busy with classes. Really, you should take every opportunity to enjoy this time with friends. Spencer: I couldn’t agree more. Okay, bye. Sam: Hey. Sam. Hi. I keep meaning to call you and your sisters. That’s okay. Um, mom told me you went to visit her at spring ridge. What did you think? It’s not bad for a minimum-security prison. I mean, the facilities are infinitely better than pentonville. The focus is less on incarceration, more on rehabilitation. I think on the whole, it’s a good move for alexis. But? Ryan chamberlain is currently being housed there. Who wants to help me decorate? Well, valentin can’T. He’s actually missing bailey’s feeding for an important meeting. I thought you’d enjoy spending time alone with our daughter.

[ Scoffs ] What are you looking for? My phone. Um, would it be too much to ask that we don’t let wiley play with this? Ask michael or willow. Not my kid, not my problem. Is it, sweetie? ‘Cause you would never take daddy’s phone. Now I am late. Can we be expecting you for wiley’s birthday party today? Wouldn’t miss that for the world.

Au revoir, mon ange. Don’t miss daddy too much. Sorry about that. Please tell me this is not another toy for wiley. Trust me, between olivia, michael, and willow, we have that area covered. Willow said I only needed to bring myself, but wiley’s my stepson. I didn’t want to show up empty-handed. Thank you. Actually… what? I owe you an apology.

[ Knock on door ] Hi. Why you holding out on me?

[ Door closes ] I’m not. Really? Yeah. I thought we were sharing our information in our investigation into peter’s disappearance. We are. So what changed? It takes a certain kind of person to change the world. My great-great-grandmother, my great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather was that kind of person. He looked after his community. She built an empire. He protected this nation. They lived their lives in extraordinary ways. With ancestry, I learned the story of peter vaughters… william lacy… madam C.J.Walker. They are the heroes in my family.

Who are the heroes in yours?

From prom dresses

to workouts

and new adventures

you hope the more you give

the less they’ll miss.

But even if your teen was

vaccinated

against meningitis in the past they may be missing vaccination for meningitis B.

Although uncommon,

up to 1 in 5 survivors of

meningitis will have

long term consequences.

Now as you’re thinking about

all the vaccines your teen

might need

make sure you ask your doctor

if your teen is missing

meningitis b vaccination. (Drill sergeant) what a pleasant morning. It’s warm, but not too warm. (Private) why’s he so happy? (Buzz) he’s happy because found out that honey nut cheerios can help lower cholesterol. (Drill sergeant) so, I propose a quiet, meditative walk through nature. (Privates) yes, drill sergeant! At philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. You need only the freshest milk and cream. That one! And the world’s best, and possibly only, schmelier. Philadelphia. Schmear perfection. Still fresh unstopables in-wash scent booster downy unstopables

They can even change

the world around us.

change everything.

[ Heavy breathing ]

Allergies with nasal

congestion overwhelming you?

Breathe more freely with

powerful claritin-D.

Claritin-d improves nasal

airflow two times more

than the leading allergy

spray at hour one.

[ Deep inhale ]

Claritin-D. Get more airflow. What do you have to apologize for? Detective, I am the reason that peter was raised by his father, cesar faison. I turned a blind eye to his worst traits, and I was slow to react. I-I didn’t do anything until it was too late. Look, there is a lot that you should be sorry for. But peter putting me in this chair isn’t one of them. Only peter is responsible for peter. You’re a kind man. Thank you… for your willingness to let me off the hook. And almost dying did have its good points. It sped up my relationship with willow. That’s amazing. Congratulations on your marriage. Thank you. Now I’m just waiting for the day that I can get out of this chair and be willow’s husband in… every sense of the word. Well, they say attitude is everything. I have no doubt that your positive attitude will work wonders in your life. Just know that I deeply regret my part in the collateral damage in peter’s wake. Have a good day. I just saw you yesterday. If I’d found out anything more, I would have told you. Oh, yeah, just like how you told me that you and finn were gonna be in the sub-basement. Yeah, it was a spur-of-the-moment thing. Oh. It was a long shot. I didn’t know until we got down there that it was a legitimate lead. Did you hear anything from forensics? Yeah. They’ve been working through the night picking up partial prints. Okay? Mostly unusable. Oh. So, any fingerprints or dna that could help us identify peter’s companion? Just blood mostly, in the corridors and elevator. Mm-hmm. All belonging to peter. Oh. And this blood, is it… droplet or a smear pattern? It’s droplets. So that means that peter wasn’t dragged out of there. Yeah, it means peter was carried out of there, or he walked out under his own power. Either way, it means he’s still out there. Good morning, josslyn. Morning. Um, I’m gonna meet you at the pool. Sounds good.

[ Door closes ] So, joss and i are kind of together. Kind of? You guys looked pretty together to me. Are you mad at me?

[ Chuckling ] No. No, I’m not mad. Josslyn is a sweet girl, and she’s been a good friend to you. And you’ve known each other forever. I’m glad you have each other. Me, too. And I-I’m sorry for not telling you sooner. I wasn’t intentionally keeping joss and me from you. I guess I’m just kind of used to going to franco with these kinds of things. Once again, you’re criticizing my mothering skills. And once again, you are getting defensive over nothing. Honey, I was giving you a compliment. You’re always putting down your mothering skills, and I’m trying to tell you that the opposite is true. You’re amazing with bailey. I am?Honey, you’re a natural. And you were right, reminding me that I trusted you with leo when he was a newborn. I actually forgot how good you are with babies. Guess I keep forgetting, too. I know firsthand that you are capable of immense love and selflessness. Honey, and now with your own, I think maybe you’re being so generous with valentin because you’re afraid to let yourself really feel that overpowering mother love. Guess I never thought of it that way. Valentin’s just so good with her, I just figure, why wouldn’t i support that, right? Honey, it’s okay to be vulnerable. To let yourself love this baby. That tough shell of yours? Bailey already cracked it. I’m a firm believer in friends enjoying themselves. Old friends or new? It’s always more interesting hanging out with new friends. Don’t you think? You know, I wasn’t aware that the two of you knew each other — well, until the other day, when spencer exposed you for trying to get nikolas and me back together. “Parent-trapping,” I think he called it. I shouldn’t have gotten involved. It was my fault, too. Trina and i learned a valuable lesson — to stay out of other people’s business. Well, I hope you mean that, spencer. I do. I’m sorry you didn’t bring little avery with you. I would have loved to say hello. I’m sorry. Is she still living with aunt carly? Hey, trina, order whatever you want from the bar, as long as it’s nonalcoholic. My treat, okay? And I’m gonna go order myself a very bloody mary.

[ Chuckles ] Have fun. Thank you. That was generous of ava. You seem surprised. Ava’s actually been a really good friend to me. And I think I know how to be one for her. How? By finding out who’s been stalking her and nikolas. My mother didn’t tell me she was in the same facility with ryan chamberlain. She probably didn’t want to worry you. But you did? There’s nothing to worry about. Ryan is still locked in. He can’t move. He can’t talk. He’s not a danger to alexis or anyone else. No, no, I’m not buying anything about that raging psychopath. I wheeled him and parked him into a corner, literally. He couldn’t so much as twitch in protest. All he can do is blink. Uh, I’m sorry to say this, but I’m with ava on this one. I think ryan’s capable of fooling anyone, including you and his doctors. Well, whether it’s ryan or some copycat devotee, ava and i are getting divorced, since it’s what the stalker seems to want. But getting a divorce wouldn’t be your first choice? No, it’s not my choice. It’s ava. I mean, the stalker proved that he can get to avery, and that was it for ava. It’s a line she won’t cross. And how could I blame her? Um, enough about me. What’s going on with you? Okay, um… I’m working a case. And it’s no secret that shawn butler didn’t shoot hayden barnes, and he hired me to find out who did. And that’s why I tracked you down here to the metro court, because you’re gonna help me find him. We women are in the know about everything. So why don’t we know how much estrogen is in our birth control pill? Get to know lo lo. Lo loestrin fe provides pregnancy prevention with the lowest daily dose of estrogen. That’s so lo lo.

Serious risks of birth control

pills include blood clots,

stroke, and heart attack,

which can be fatal.

Smoking increases these risks,

especially if you are over 35,

so lo loestrin fe users

should not smoke.

Don’t take the pill if you’ve

had any of these conditions

or high blood pressure

that medicine can’t control,

certain cancers,

liver disease,

unexplained vaginal bleeding,

are taking hepatitis c drugs,

or if you could be pregnant. Ask your doctor about lo lo. The birth control pill with the lowest daily dose of estrogen. Are you in the lo? – Bedtime!! – Bedtime. I love bedtime.

The thin, sweet bite

to end the night.

Oreo thins. Not touching is still touching protection. Adding lysol laundry sanitizer kills 99.9% of bacteria. Detergent alone, can’T. Lysol. What it takes to protect. I’ve been telling everyone,the secret to great teeth… is having healthy gums.

Keep yours healthy with

crest advanced gum restore. It’s clinically proven to detoxify below the gum line. And, it restores by helping heal gums in as little as 7 days. Because you can’t have a healthy smile, without healthy gums. Advanced gum restore from crest.

The #1 toothpaste brand

in america. (Denise) my husband has lung cancer from smoking. Today, he’s being tested to see if his cancer has spread. He may be the one getting the test, but we both live with the results.

[Announcer]

You can quit. For free help,

call 1-800-quit now. Listen, kid, you’re cute, but I think it’s better if we keep our arrangement strictly professional. Look, I know you can’t do that with your daddy/papa, ’cause he doesn’t even know you’re not really his. And do I feel guilty about that? Yes…and no. Yes, because valentin is turning out to be a really good father. Aww, here you go, mama. And he’s actually a pretty decent guy, too. But no, and I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but your biological father is a wall-crawling psycho. So it’s actually much, much healthier for you to bond with valentin.

[ Sighs ] I mean, he would protect you regardless. But it doesn’t hurt that he absolutely adores you. Aww, here you go, sweetie. Shh. Shh, shh. As for you and me, I think it’s better if neither of us gets too comfortable with one another. So save your adoring eyes for your real mother. Real mother? What do you mean by that? I’m sorry you don’t have franco to talk to anymore. But he would be thrilled you and josslyn are together. He always just wanted to see you happy. Yeah, I think so, too. It’s tough, isn’t it? Getting used to not having him around. Sometimes when I have a really difficult day at work, I come home thinking I just can’t wait to tell franco about it. Well, you can always talk to me. And you can always talk to me. Thanks. I’ll see you later. Okay. And, mom? Yeah. Franco would want all of us to be happy. See, isn’t this nice — going for a walk, getting a little fresh air, soaking up the sun, little vitamin d? Have a private conversation? The last thing I want is for you to turn yourself in to protect me. And the last thing I want is for them to find peter’s body and your dna to be on it. I’d rather take the fall alone than implicate you in any way. The best thing for everyone is if this body’s never found. I just got some stuff I need to work through first, nothing you need to worry about. But then I promise, I will be as happy as franco would want me to be. Good. So, you, uh, expecting someone? You seemed surprised to see me. Valentin. Mm. Well, he wants to bring peter in as much as we do. I guess who you decide to collaborate with is your decision. Yes, it is. He doesn’t have the most reassuring track record, anna. I think he’s changed, dante. Well, people don’t change. And valentin is always out for himself. Doesn’t matter who gets in the way. I’ll take that under advisement. Hello, dante. Have you found peter? Not yet. Have you?

[ Sighs ] No. Not yet. See you. Were you exchanging information? Not all of it. Hayden went to see shawn while he was in prison, and she hinted that she might know the identity of her shooter. But she left port charles before shawn could press her for any information. This is the first time she left, correct? Months after the shooting? Yes, correct. I don’t know how I can help you. Come on. You were married to her. Yeah, the operative word being “were.” Our relationship was complicated, to put it mildly. I mean, technically, we were still married when I was presumed dead. Oh, is that what you’re calling it? How about the time valentin tried to kill me, and so I chose to go into hiding? For three years. When I decided to take back my life, I contacted hayden. She and jax, they worked with me to reclaim what was rightfully mine, and I intended to cut her in on a share of the proceeds. But she took off, because she was afraid of valentin. Leaving violet with finn. I mean, finn told me that hayden hasn’t been in contact with violet at all. Hey, I tried to track hayden down. It’s like she disappeared in a black hole. We’re trying to look for hayden’s mother, naomi dreyfus. Hopefully she could steer us in the right direction, but we’ve hit a wall there. Can you do me a favor? If you can find out any information on hayden, will you let me know? Of course. Just remember, hayden made toxic friends and questionable choices. My advice to you and shawn — stop looking for her unless you want trouble arriving on your doorstep. Now, if you’ll excuse me.

[ Spencer clears throat ] You still here? May I join you? It’s a free country. So, what shall we charge to ava’s tab first? Does a virgin piña colada sound good? How about a mai tai minus the rum? I don’t think you were included on my tab. Besides, can’t cassadines cover their own drinks? A cassadine can not only cover his own drinks, he can supply them, along with a castle and a state-of-the-art sound system. Is that an invitation? Are you accepting? Accepting what? Spencer just offered to throw us a party. The airport can be a real challenge for new homeownerswho have become their parents… okay, everybody, let’s do a ticket check. Paper tickets. We’re off to a horrible start. …But we can overcome it. We’re not gonna point out our houses, landmarks, or major highways during takeoff. Don’t buy anything. I packed so many delicious snacks. -They’re — -nope. Would you say, ballpark, when group two is gonna get boarded? 2 hours and 58 minutes.

Progressive can’t protect you

from becoming your parents,

but we can protect your

home and auto when

you bundle with us. Someone should’ve left home earlier. My nunormal? Fewer asthma attacks with nucala. A once-monthly add-on injection for severe eosinophilic asthma. Nucala reduces eosinophils, a key cause of severe asthma.

Nucala is not for

sudden breathing problems.

Touch after touch bacteria in

That’s why microban 24 doesn’t

just sanitize and stop.

Microban 24 keeps killing

bacteria for 24 hours.

Spray on hard surfaces

bacteria initially,

including the covid-19 virus.

Once dry microban forms a

Microban 24.

Touch after touch,

it doesn’t give up. The olympic games are on, and so is toyota’s national sales event! Now’s the time to get a great deal on the 2021s while they last. Like camry. Highlander. Rav4. And more! Ooh! She sticks the landing. Come in today! (Narrator) toyota. Let’s go places. Rink on my tab. Shouldn’t you be swimming in the pool instead of a bloody mary? Pool bar doesn’t serve booze before noon. And you should not be seen with me. Our stalker could be watching. Is that what has you so upset?

[ Sighs ] I was just reminded that I cannot be with my daughter until you and i are divorced. I’m sorry. Does it help that I saw ryan? When? I visited alexis at spring ridge. Ryan chamberlain is staying at the same facility. Why didn’t you tell me sooner? Because there is nothing to tell. Ryan’s condition is unchanged. He is completely locked in. I honestly don’t see how he could be stalking anyone or even communicating to someone to carry out his orders. Well, if that’s true, then it really just makes things worse. We have no idea who’s terrorizing us, just that they’re as sick as ryan, and their anonymity makes them even more dangerous. Spencer. God, it’s just so nice of you to throw us a party. Oh, we’ve got to have a photo booth. A deejay and a full lighting package. Bungee jumping from the parapet — slow down. I haven’t agreed to anything. So much for making it up to me. Ooh, what’s spencer making up for this time? First, he sabotages my plan to get ava and nikolas back together. Then he offers to throw a party to make amends. Now he’s backing out of said party. Dude, you got to throw that party. I thought you were the guy with no limits. I mean, didn’t you rent that yacht one time in, uh, “ibeeza”? First, it’s pronounced “ibitha.” Oh, right. Sorry. I don’t know what I was thinking. Second, I’m not backing out of anything. Whatever the lady wants, the lady gets. Hey, honey. Hey. Whoa, that’s a lot of glitter. But you got a lot of glitter in your hair, too. Uh, yeah, come on in. Come in. Hey. Charlotte thought it would be a good idea to make a birthday card for wiley out of glitter. Rocco and leo thought it’d be a better idea to throw glitter all over the backyard. Oh, he didn’T. No, and all over themselves and all over you? I’m very glad that the boys are good friends. They are very happy. Charlotte, not so much. I can imagine. Yeah. So, rocco told me that, uh — that you’re taking him to see lulu in the next couple days, huh? Yeah, yeah, that’s the plan. It’s good. That’s good. He should, uh — he should be seeing his mom. Why do I get the feeling you’re gonna tell me something I don’t want to hear? God, chase. You could give a girl a heart attack, sneaking up on me like that. Why are you telling your daughter you’re not her real mother? Because I don’t feel like her real mother. Look, I’m not an expert on babies, but I think you’re selling yourself short. I think you are a real mother to bailey. Come on, I-I was your roommate. I’ve seen firsthand how fiercely devoted you are to the people that you care about. Have you seen finn? I did. And? It was him. He was on the roof with peter. Anna, I am so sorry. Yeah, it is what it is. I just have to figure out a way to protect him. From what? Why does finn need protecting? Anna, what is going on? What happened on that roof? Finn pushed peter. And he fell down the stairs. And, um… he’s convinced he’s dead. Well, this is a surprise. Come in. Thank you. Did you bring more of jason’s stuff to burn? Oh, gosh, how embarrassing. No, I think that was enough danger to last me the rest of the year. Well, after finding out that jason and carly were engaged, I think we both needed to blow off some steam. Hope dante didn’t give you a hard time. Dante: You know, for what it’s worth, I think jason messed up. He had a chance at a lifetime. And he didn’t take it. If it were me, I would have chosen you. It turned out alright at the end. Well, if we’re not burning anything, what brings you by? Your sister hayden. I need to find her. A lot of people think dealing with copd is a walk in the park. If I have something to help me breathe better, everything will be fun and nice. But I still have bad days… flare-ups, (cough cough) which can permanently damage my lungs. My lungs need protection against flare-ups. So it’s time to get real. Because in the real world… our lungs deserve the real protection of breztri. Breztri gives you better breathing… symptom improvement, and flare-up protection. It’s the first and only copd medicine proven to reduce flare-ups by 52%.

Breztri won’t replace

a rescue inhaler

for sudden breathing problems.

It is not for asthma.

Tell your doctor if you have

a heart condition…

or high blood pressure

before taking it.

Don’t take breztri

more than prescribed.

Breztri may increase

your risk of thrush,

pneumonia, and osteoporosis.

Call your doctor if worsened

breathing, chest pain,

mouth or tongue swelling…

problems urinating,

vision changes,

or eye pain occur. For real protection, ask your doctor about breztri.

ohh, it’s yoplait time. (Vo) pack go-gurt frozen. Thaws by lunch. Hey, it’s me…your skin.Some cleansers get us clean – but take my moisture. I’m craving a balanced clean with cerave. Cerave cleansers, developed with dermatologists, help me maintain my moisture balance with hyaluronic acid, known to attract moisture, plus 3 essential ceramides to help restore my natural barrier. With cerave, cleansing can be about giving not just taking, so we can be a healthy-feeling clean – cerave clean. Cerave cleansers. From the #1 dermatologist recommended skincare brand. At philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. The recipe we invented over 145 years ago and me…the world’s best, and possibly only, schmelier. Philadelphia. Schmear perfection. We’re eating and drinking foods and beverages that are very acidic. It can soften the enamel. Pronamel repair, what it’s doing is driving more minerals deep into the enamel surface, that’s going to help actively repair. Pronamel is taking it to another level. Charmin ultra soft has so much cushiony softness, it’s hard for your family to remember they can use less. Sweet pillows of softness! This is soft! Holy charmin! Oh! Excuse me! Roll it back, everybody! Sorry! Charmin ultra soft is so cushiony soft, you’ll want more! But it’s so absorbent, you can use less. So it’s always worth it. Now, what did we learn about using less? You’ve got to, roll it back everybody! We all go, why not enjoy the go with charmin. (Vo) single-serve fancy feast petitesare just for her. Just the right size. Just the right gourmet flavor. No artificial preservatives or colors. Just what she needs. Just what you want. Fancy feast petites. Love is in

the details. Finn confronted peter on the roof when he was waiting for the helicopter, and he begged him for the antidote. But peter refused and chose to toss the vial off the roof, which just… infuriated finn. He lost it and shoved peter. He fell down the stairs, smashing his head open in the process. By the time finn got to him on the landing, he checked for a pulse, but there wasn’t one. And at that point, it was more important for him to save chase. So he took peter’s body and deposited it in a — in an abandoned lab, in the sub-basement. Helena’s lab. Yeah. Um… finn put peter’s body in a freezer. What, by himself? He’s vague about that. Meaning he had help. Yeah, possibly. Probably. But he refuses to admit it. But listen. This is the important part. He put peter’s body in the freezer because he couldn’t figure out a safe way to move it. And now he took me there yesterday to show me, but the body’s gone. There’s no sign of peter. Dead or alive? That’s the million-dollar question. The pcpd, they found traces of peter’s blood in the lab, the elevator, the access corridors. But it’s not clear yet whether the body was carried out of there. Or if he walked out. Yeah. What does dante know? Just that peter’s missing and hurt. He found a lot of the blood actually yesterday. But the pcpd, they obviously — they don’t know about finn’s connection to any of this. Yet. Yeah. Jordan says she wants to put most of her attention on the person that was on the roof with peter, which is concerning. And all forensics has proven is that, dead or alive, peter was removed from the basement. Brook lynn: This whole baby thing’s got me rattled. I mean, I was fine when olivia gave me leo to take care of, but here, I just feel like I’m under a microscope. Lots of people living under one roof telling you how to raise your baby? Yeah, and not enough space to get this mothering thing right, although, shock of all shocks, olivia told me I’m doing a good job. Well, if anyone can sense someone going through the motions, it’s olivia. I wish I could say the same for myself. What are you talking about? Going through the motions. I feel like I’m — I’m putting on a front for willow. It’s — it’s like I’m this optimistic guy who thinks he’s gonna jump out of the chair any day. You will. Yeah, I’m trying. I really am grateful to the quartermaines for asking me back to stay at the house. Trust me. They’re putting up valentin. You’re easy-peasy. It’s the perfect situation for me. The house already has wheelchair access because of lila, and willow’s just up the driveway. What more could I ask for? To walk. Yeah. Yeah, that. It’s like I’m faking it, or I’m bluffing until one day, I miraculously wake up, and I actually feel like willow’s husband. Meanwhile, thanks to, uh, nelle benson and her scissors of doom, I can’t even sing bailey a lullaby. Maybe I can help with that. Can I hold bailey? Of course. Come here, sweet one. Take this.

[ Bailey fusses, brook lynn clicks tongue ] Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Shh, shh, shh, shh. Aww. Hey, you. Hey. Oh, my gosh. You know, when my mom would rock me to sleep, she’d sing me this song. She’d sing…

lullaby and good night

you’re your mother’s delight

shining angels by your side

my darling, abide

soft and warm is your bed

close your eyes and rest your head

soft and warm is your bed

close your eyes and rest your head

[ Bailey fussing ] Yeah. Yeah. I-I don’t mean to pry. Well, but you’re gonna. Uh — every time you see lulu in that facility, it costs you. Now, and don’t get me wrong, I am so thrilled that you are back at the pcpd being a detective. But a job does not equal a life. Lulu was my life, ma. And now I barely even have a legal right to see her. Thankfully, laura allows me to. Oh, of course she does. But — but my point is, the — the divorce, I-I’m the one who insisted on that. And you’ve been beating yourself up about it for months. But it just seems like lately — I don’t know, maybe seems like you’re lightening up a little bit, trying to cut yourself some slack. I just wonder if — if maybe that didn’t have something to do with sam.

[ Sighs ] So, what, shawn was framed for hayden’s shooting. The judge who sentenced him is now being investigated for racial bias. And now shawn’s been released, and the governor commuted his sentence to time served. Yeah. That’s pretty much it. Now that the truth is out, whoever framed shawn could pose a danger to hayden. I know that you and hayden weren’t exactly friends at the time. We didn’t even know we were sisters. But you eventually did grow closer. And if there’s maybe some sort of information that hayden told you at some time that you didn’t think was important then that is actually important now, I mean, anything that could help us figure out who shot your sister. Elizabeth: Was hayden in the wrong place at the wrong time? Or was she shot because of you? Were you the one behind this? Was hayden… do you want something to drink or eat? I’ll put it on the cassadine tab. You can save ava’s offer for another time. I’m good, thanks. Okay. Spencer. Change your mind? Yes, about the party at wyndemere. If you don’t think your dad will approve, don’t have it. Joss and I kind of forced you into it anyway. Thanks. I know things are just getting back on track for you and your dad. I wouldn’t want to spoil it. Trina. Just get ready. For what? For the biggest rager port charles has ever seen. Until we figure out who is stalking us, who’s threatening us, threatening avery, there is no future for us, nikolas. Oh, don’t say that. Please don’T. Really, you j– you just make things more difficult. I don’t mean to. Don’t you know? There’s just — there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to make you feel safe. I do know that. And I hate seeing you hurting, too. Pool floaties are like whooping cough. Amusement parks are like whooping cough. Even ice cream is like whooping cough, it’s not just for kids. Whooping cough is highly contagious for people of any age. And it can cause violent uncontrollable coughing fits. Sometimes followed by vomiting and exhaustion. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about whooping cough vaccination because whooping cough isn’t just for kids. There are times, I wonder… why can’t I wear white after labor day? Something on your mind?

The only thing stronger than us, is you. We’ve got to find peter before the pcpd does, before he can hurt anybody else. W-we don’t know if he’s alive or dead. Finn is convinced that he’s dead. Anna, I say this as delicately as I can. I am not emotionally attached to finn like you are. I don’t have to give him the benefit of the doubt.

[ Sighs ] Where do we go from here? I mean, I-I’m lying by omission to dante and jordan. There are two possible scenarios. Peter is dead, and somebody has moved his body, or he’s alive, and he’s in hiding, and we’ve got problems. And I think it’s much more likely that he’s alive. Brook lynn: Shh, shh, shh, shh. Bailey’s sleeping like, well, a baby. My singing put her to sleep.Yeah. You know, maybe you could tell willow that. Can’t help but feeling that this version of me isn’t enough for her. Chase, any woman would be lucky to have you as a husband. And bailey is lucky to have you as a mom. I’ve seen the way that she looks at you and the way that you look at her. And I-I know I’m not a parent, but I think going all-in on loving your child, it’s half the battle. We have talked about this, okay? Sam and I, we’re just friends, okay? And we’re barely that after she threw us both in the harbor on the fourth, okay? You see? What? This is what I’m talking about. What?The — the — the spark! No. What spark? This is nothing. I don’t even know what you’re talking — rocco, let’s go, man! No, you’re smiling! You’re — you’re laughing! The other day, I saw you do a completely spontaneous rant about the yankees. Honey, you’ve got such an amazing capacity to embrace life. And maybe it’s got something to do with sam. Maybe not. I could be right. I could be wrong. I don’t know. But I know that if lulu was here, she’d want you to stop moping around. She would want you to live your life. I know. And I’m — I’m trying to, ma, to be in the present moment as much as I can, but it is — it’s really tough. Maybe I-I do have to start thinking about… letting go of lulu. So, I’m right?

[ Sighs ] Uh, yeah. Okay. As much as it pains me to say that, maybe you are. Elizabeth, can you think of anything that hayden told you that might be relevant? No. No, I-I can’t think of anything. I’m just trying to process what you told me. Shawn seems pretty convinced that she knew who was behind her attempted murder. Well, she didn’t talk to me about it. But there were a lot of things we didn’t talk about. She changed a lot once — once she became a mother. Everything she did was about violet. She was so loving and committed. That’s why it still doesn’t make sense she would just disappear and leave violet behind. Okay, so maybe she disappeared to protect violet. Or something happened, and hayden can’t come back. Josslyn: Were you and spencer finalizing details for the party? Actually, I was gonna let him off the hook, but he wasn’t having it. He swears it’s gonna be an epic party. Don’t get your hopes up too high, trina. Spencer’s a nice kid and all, but sometimes, he doesn’t deliver exactly what he promises. So you’re saying he’s a liar? More of a compulsive exaggerator. You see, spencer is capable of some incredible things, but he thinks he has to be all incredible all the time, sometimes to the point of being obnoxious. Are you warning me away from spencer? I miss you so much. And I miss avery. I want you both back. I know. Me, too.

[ Bailey fusses ] Yeah. Yeah. No, no, no, rocco, rocco, rocco, no, no, no! No glitter on your person bef– off before you get in the car, please.

[ Sighs ] What do you think the odds of that happening are? It’s going all over your car. Yeah. Yeah.Alright. I’ll see you. Bye. Hey. Come on back if you need any advice. Oh, yeah. I know where to go if I need someone to talk to. I think I’m good for now, though. But hey. And this is the only thing I’m gonna say about sam. Mm-hmm. Butt out. I’m sorry if my investigation has dredged up painful memories for you. If I learn where hayden is, you will be my first call. Thank you. Of course.

[ Cellphone rings ] Hello? You need to come over right away. Everything okay? We need to talk about hayden. What about her? About what you did to her. I’m not warning you away from spencer. Although that might actually be a good idea. I have a noninterference clause when it comes to other people’s relationships, or lack thereof. You know, if you want to be with spencer or victor or someone else or nobody at all, I am here to support, not to judge. Thank you. And besides, joss and I, we’re still figuring out stuff for ourselves. What’s to figure out? Well, cam’s mom, for one thing. Mrs. Baldwin walked in on us. Embarrassing. Yeah. Very. But after my mom and I talked, she was actually pretty chill about it. Lucky you. I would actually sink through the floor if my mom ever caught me kissing a guy.

[ Sniffles ] Everything okay? What do you want, spencer? I guess I deserve your suspicion. I wasn’t very subtle about my anger toward you. I know you have your reasons. I know that — that you needed me to testify to help you with valentin. And when your father came home, I practically blackmailed him into marrying me. No one’s perfect. Certainly neither of us. Since I’ve been home, I’ve seen how much my father loves you and you love him. Do you think that we can put the past behind us, start fresh? Is it possible that we could declare a truce? Why do you believe that peter survived? Who’s gonna move the body? What’s the point? I mean, unless finn has some unknown ally ready to cover for him. Come on. This is peter we’re talking about. He’s not the first dead man to get up and walk away in port charles. And now he’s had weeks to go to ground and cover his tracks. Yeah. That makes sense. I can’t help hoping that he’s dead. I know. I know. It would just be a relief to know that I wasn’t the one who had to kill him. See, this is how you and I are different. I’m ready to kill peter myself. I want him dead and buried, where he’s no longer a threat to anyone I love.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Well, I guess it’s time — I have to take these off.

[ Breathes sharply ] Only — only if you’re ready. I’m not. But it has to be done.

[ Sighs ]

[ Voice breaking ] I miss him. Yeah, I miss him, too. Carly: It’s beautiful. Hey. Hey! Oh, I’m sorry I’m late. I had some last-minute business, um, repairing potholes. Oh, well, you can’t talk too much about potholes.

[ Laughs ] I beg to differ.

[ Laughs ] But I didn’t come here to talk about business. I came here to celebrate your engagement to jason. Oh! Yeah, I just saw that the bartender set aside a bottle of our best champagne for you. That is not necessary. It absolutely is. Think about it — all the bad news that we had to put up with this year. It’s very important to celebrate the good times. Yes. [ Laughs ] I agree with the mayor. And please let me offer my congratulations. When’s the wedding date so I can put it in my calendar? I’ve already ordered us drinks. Ooh. Nonalcoholic. Just because I’m pregnant doesn’t mean that you have to abstain. I don’t have to abstain. I want to. I want to go through everything that you’re going through. You’ll share my labor pains, too? Yeah! I would if I could. Or is — is that too weird and stalkerish? Uh, from anyone else, yeah, kind of. From you… not in the least.

[ Chuckles ] Good. And, um, just so you know, I told carly that I’m not interested in working in sonny’s business. How’d she react? Relieved, I think. Yeah, but mostly happy that you and I have gotten together. Carly likes you a lot. I like carly a lot. When I was using, she, uh… really tried to help me. She was kind and supportive. But you still don’t want our baby anywhere near the corinthos business. Nor the baby’s father. Okay. So, two of your wishes have come true. What’s your third wish? To know where we go from here? Okay. Sparkling green tea infused with mango, specialty of the house. This is good! My mom’s idea. She wanted the nonalcoholic drinks to be just as good as the ones with booze. Mmm! This is so nice, so relaxing. Sometimes. You know, without spencer lurking around. He’s not so bad. Mm. He can be. Proceed with caution. Oh, my god. You sound like me talking to my mom. She told you to proceed with caution? Well, i almost did. My mom’s seeing someone. Like, dating him? Yep. And it’s the first time my mom’s ever been serious enough about a guy, other than my dad, to tell me about it. I can’t believe this is real. We’re really together. We are together.

[ Laughs ] Which is why I was able to tell trina. I mean, do you know what a huge deal that is? I’ve never spoken to trina about any man that I was seeing. Why’s that? Because no one was important enough. You wanted to see me? Yeah, I got your report on david hopkins, the medevac pilot. Yeah, we got some good info from anna. I’ve been going over the security footage from the, uh, hospital from the day the, uh, pilot tried to pick up peter from the roof. Any luck? No. Cyrus’ people disabled all the cameras from the stairwell leading to the rooftop. So, no update on peter’s potential accomplice? Mnh. Anna said the chopper pilot’s description was a bit vague. Yeah, I read that in your report. Did anna tell you what she’s doing to follow up? You ready? It’s empty. It’s impossible. Eh… I put peter’s body in here myself. Okay, you need to be really honest with me. Who else knows about this? Finn and I put peter in the freezer ourselves. If finn moved the body, he would have told me. Maybe it was anna. Maybe she found out. Somebody would have seen her. The cameras weren’t disabled until a few minutes before I made it down to the basement. Unless anna figured out a way around the cameras. I saw them together in finn’s office. The way they looked — I think finn was telling anna he killed peter. Alright, guys, no insurance talk on beach day. -I’m down. -Yes, please.

[ Chuckles ] Don’t get me wrong, I love my rv, but insuring it is such a hassle. Same with my boat. The insurance bills are through the roof. -[ Sighs ] -Be cool. I wish I could group my insurance stuff. -[ Coughs ] Bundle. -The house, the car, the rv. Like a cluster. An insurance cluster. -Woosah. -[ Chuckles ] -I doubt that exists. -It’s a bundle! It’s a bundle, and it saves you money! Hi. I’m flo from progressive, and I couldn’t help but overhear… super fun beach day, everybody. Your mission: Stand up to moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. And take. It. On… with rinvoq. Rinvoq a once-daily pill can dramatically improve symptoms… rinvoq helps tame pain, stiffness, swelling. And for some, rinvoq can even significantly reduce ra fatigue. That’s rinvoq relief. With ra, your overactive immune system attacks your joints. Rinvoq regulates it to help stop the attack.

Rinvoq can lower your abil ity

to fight infections,

including tuberculosis.

Serious infections and

blood clots, sometimes fatal,

have occurred as have certain

cancers, including lymphoma,

and tears in the stomach

or intestines,

and changes in lab results.

Your doctor should

monitor your bloodwork.

Tell your doctor about

any infections…

and if you are or may become

pregnant while taking rinvoq. Take on ra. Talk to your rheumatologist about rinvoq relief. Rinvoq. Make it your mission. If you can’t afford your medicine, abbvie may be able to help. We don’t use just any wipe, we use dawn disinfecting wipes. They’re tough enough to cut through greasy messes, yet gentle enough to clean the surfaces that matter most. All while killing 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. Get the grease fighting power of dawn in a disinfecting wipe. We’re changing our look. We’re changing to make a difference… for a more inclusive future. But one thing we’re keeping the same… is our great rice. We’re ben’s original. Did you know diarrhea is often caused by bad bacteria in food?Try pepto diarrhea. Its concentrated formula coats and kills bacteria to relieve diarrhea. See, pepto diarrhea gets to the source, killing the bad bacteria. So, make sure to have pepto diarrhea on hand. On’t know why I’m so weirded out by my mom dating. Maybe because it feels like life is changing so fast, and I just want her to stay the same. I know what you mean. I mean, we’re going to college soon, and it seems like our moms are taking advantage of our new lives to start new lives of their own. Your mom is marrying jason. And your mom’s getting serious about dating. It’s hard seeing my mom other than a mom and a doctor. Maybe that’s partly why I’m so confused. What’s the other part? I think it’s the man my mom is seeing. What’s that look about? You know, I’m just touched that you told trina about me. But I’m also surprised. Why? Uh, because I know that trina’s happiness is your priority. Mm, thank you. Mm-hmm. But I gotta know — what was her reaction? Trina admitted that she felt a little weird — her word… okay. …Talking about it. But in the end, she says she just wants to see me happy. Alright. So, if her reaction about the news had been different, would I be sitting here right now? Probably not.

[ Laughs ] That’s fair.

[ Laughing ] Yeah, I know. But I would have done my best to convince her, you know, to see the man that I see. And we know how convincing you can be when you want to be. And don’t you ever forget it. That said… when you’re ready, can I convince you and trina to let me treat you to dinner? Oh. Okay, thanks for letting me know. I’ll handle it personally. That was monica quartermaine. Some of the security cameras at G.H. Are down again. What, the ones that were just fixed? Afraid so. Well, cyrus is in jail. That means, uh, his network is still intact. Maybe they want to continue to operate out of the hospital. Let’s go. There is no way anna and finn made it to the basement before me. But I’m sure finn was telling anna everything when I barged into his office. I even gave him an excuse to leave, and he didn’t take me up on it. Right. No, I-I heard your — I heard your voicemail, but I was already on my way down to the freezer. We would have crossed paths. Okay, so if somebody else found the body and stole it, then why haven’t they contacted finn or me? I-I don’t know. Maybe somebody’s trying to protect you. Peter had a lot of enemies. There’d be a lot of people very glad that he’s dead. Glad enough to be our guardian angel? To cover up finn pushing peter down the stairs? Elizabeth, there’s hundreds of people coming in and out of this hospital every day. It’s possible somebody stepped in. Well, is there a way to find out? There is.

[ Groans ] I already told you, no one else knows that I killed peter and put his body in the freezer. Someone could have seen you without you knowing. Maybe. Maybe. Even if I was watched, why would someone move his body? To protect you? Wouldn’t they tell me? It depends who this person is. There is, of course, another explanation. Which is? Well, are you absolutely certain that peter was dead? If you were granting me the “where do we go from here?” Wish, I’d say I want to spend more time with you. You think we should get to know each other better before the baby arrives? That would help with co-parenting, don’t you think?

[ Cellphone chimes ] Am I keeping you from something? Ah, no, I, uh… I set a reminder on my phone to go check for apartments. My studio is so tiny, even i can barely fit into it, never mind adding a baby. Mm. Which reminds me, I need to baby-proof my apartment for when you and the baby come over. A-and maybe someday the three of us will move in together. N-no pressure. The three of us, as in you, me, and our baby? Or you, me, and gladys? Jason and I have not set a date yet, so invitations are not an issue. Mm. Well, I-I hope they won’t be where I’m concerned. Remember, sonny — may he rest — was my dear cousin. And my dear friend. Yeah. Yeah, so then you realize he’d want people at the wedding who remember him fondly, instead of dancing on his grave. Gladys, you will not be on the guest list. After I risked my life to exonerate the groom. After you perjured yourself to make sure he was arrested in the first place. Hey, ma, just saw you were here. Want to grab a drink? Oh, can you afford it? I mean, the prices here are so high, and you chose not to join the lucrative corinthos coffee business. I’m sure that he had good reasons for that. Yes, like a successful garage to run. Not as successful as the family business. Okay, that’s enough. Come on. Sasha’s waiting. Oh, my god.

[ Laughs ] I’m so sorry. Oh, my god. I’m sorry you had to listen to all that. I mean, brando’s a sweetheart. That’s the only reason I don’t have her thrown out of my restaurant. Mm. How do you feel about what she said? What, when gladys said I was dancing on sonny’s grave? Just gladys — petty, nasty, and dead wrong. Can you be free of hair breakage worries? We invited mahault to see for herself that new dove breakage remedy gives damaged hair the strength it needs. Even with repeated combing hair treated with dove shows 97% less breakage. Strong hair with new dove breakage remedy. – Bedtime!! – Bedtime. I love bedtime.

The thin, sweet bite

to end the night.

Oreo thins. Ice cream is like whooping cough, it’s not just for kids. Whooping cough is highly contagious for people of any age. And it can cause violent uncontrollable coughing fits. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about whooping cough vaccination because it’s not just for kids. Hey, it’s me…your skin. Some cleansers get us clean – but take my moisture. Cerave cleansers help me maintain my moisture balance with hyaluronic acid, plus 3 essential ceramides to help restore my natural barrier. So we’re cerave clean. Cerave hydrating cleanser. At philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. The recipe we invented over 145 years ago and me…the world’s best, and possibly only, schmelier. Philadelphia. Schmear perfection. We were alone when my husband had the heart attack.

Question your protection. Try always discreet. (Roosevelt) I always thought that cigarette smoking just messed up your lungs. I never thought that at only 45 it would give me a heart attack. My tip is; do your heart a favor, and quit now.

(Announcer) you can quit.

call 1-800-quit-now. Your mom is seeing curtis ashford? I know, right? I mean, on the one hand, I spent months hating curtis for not doing more to save my dad. Then I realized my dad wasn’t actually dead, so I had to take a step back to apologize to curtis and reassess. And that was before curtis saved me and my mom from cyrus renault, so it’s already completely complicated. And now on top of everything, he’s dating my mom. Well, do you think that’s why your mom and he got together? Because of what happened when renault took you guys hostage? I think that’s part of it, but I suspect it started before then. For a while, I thought my mom was the reason that commissioner ashford and curtis split up. So, dr. Quartermaine said that there was an issue with the new security measures that she put in place, specifically the cameras installed in the stairwells leading up to the roof and the hallways in the basement. I thought it was best to let dr. Quartermaine know so she could bring in the pcpd in case renault’s people are involved again. How do we access the hospital’s basements? This way. I love that you want to get to know my daughter better, and I promise you that I’m gonna take you up on that offer… after we spend a little bit more time together, get a little bit more comfortable. And after you… after I tell jordan about us, of course. I know speaking with her is not gonna be easy. That’s not what worries me. Then what is? Exactly how much did you tell trina about you and me? Did you mention that we had an affair while you were still married to her father? How’s my grandchild? You taking good care of him or her? Of course. This baby is my number-one priority. Mm. Like — like brando is mine.

[ Chuckles ] You know, if my grandchild is anything like his dad, you be prepared for changing lots and lots of diapers. Mom, what? I’m prepared. And I am sure brando will be prepared, too. Right. Of course. But, um, you know, you and the baby can’t move in with us. There’s no room. Actually, mom, I wanted to talk to you about that. I think it’s time you moved out. You and jason are planning a future together, and that is something to celebrate. Thank you. Mm-hmm. Mm. You don’t think it’s too soon after sonny, do you? Oh, come on, now, carly, don’t let gladys get to you. I’m not. I’m not. I mean, I know — I know gladys makes anyone a target. I get that. You know, I have to admit that when I heard that you two were engaged, I was a little surprised, too. You wanted to know how, so soon after sonny’s death? Carly, I’m not passing judgment on you.

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I know that. It’s — it’s not you.

[ Chuckles ] And it’s not gladys. It’s me. Spinelli confirmed that he disengaged the cameras in the stairwells leading to the roof and the stairwells below the parking garage. So, hospital security couldn’t see you taking the elevator to the sub-basement. Or entering it, either. And when I didn’t find peter’s body in the freezer, I had spinelli check the footage to see if anybody was heading down to the basement before the cameras were disabled. And? I mean, did he see someone?

[ Cellphone chimes ] It’s spinelli. He’s got an answer. I imagine that things were moving really fast, and could you have been mistaken about peter’s death? I think I’d know if somebody was dead. Yeah, okay, so conditions were less than ideal. Chase was in a critical condition. You needed to move peter’s body before it was discovered. You wouldn’t be the first doctor to make a mistake.

[ Footsteps approaching ] Anna? Finn? What are you doing down here? Oh, hey, sorry to catch you off guard. Um, I just was following up on what we talked about. Dante: Right. Uh, well, we got a call from dr. Quartermaine. Some of the security cameras in the stairwells and corridors leading to this sub-basement were also turned off. -Oh. -Now it’s your turn. What are you doing down here?

I went by one night a little while ago. I saw curtis’ stuff in boxes waiting for him to pick them up. But I had a good talk with commissioner ashford, and she said the reason she and curtis split up was because she kept too many secrets. So my mom had nothing to do with it. So you have nothing to worry about. I don’t know. I still feel bad for commissioner ashford, especially after I went to curtis’ nightclub right after. Why? What happened? Curtis was taking off his wedding band… with my mom’s help. That’S…strange. I know! And I told ava, and she said not to worry. But now that my mom and curtis are dating, I can’t shake the feeling that they’ve been involved… earlier. Well, how much earlier? That’s what’s freaking me out. What if curtis cheated on commissioner ashford with my mom? No, I definitely did not tell trina that you and I were a thing when I was married to her father. That would break her heart. Okay, but trina forgave taggert for faking his own death, right?

If she can handle that, then maybe she can handle this. Look, I-I understand how you feel about secrets, and I’m usually right there with you. I get it. But how is this something trina needs to know? Portia, what if our history blows up in our faces? Secrets come out. Just ask jordan. You’re kicking me out? You put my son up to this, didn’t you? No, it was my idea. Okay, mom? I need the second bedroom for the baby. Is sasha moving in, too? We’re not ready for that yet. But there will be times when the baby stays overnight with brando. And can sleep in his room. You’re gonna need my help for changing diapers and getting up for late-night feedings. I think I can handle that. The baby needs a nursery, though, which means you need to find a place to live. You can’t afford to pay my rent, especially since you won’t be working for jason and carly, which is where the real money is. I’m not going to be paying your rent, okay? You will. How do you expect me to do that? The same way everybody else does — by getting a job. Are you having second thoughts? Uh, no, not at all. I mean, jason and i made this decision together, and we’re committed. You know, there’s no one else I’d rather spend my life with. Well, I can think of one other person. I loved sonny for so long. You know, I, um… I still do. I miss him so much, laura. I think about him a thousand times a day. Sometimes I start to text him a picture of donna, or I wake up thinking I heard him climb into bed next to me. Of course. Of course you do. Love do-doesn’t go away overnight. Oh, jason gets that. You know, he does. He’s grieving for sonny, too. Yeah. Listen, carly, a part of you will always be with sonny, and he with you. And that’s okay. It really is. And it’s only natural that the friendship that you have with jason would develop into something more now that he’s gone. Spinelli saw nothing on the security footage that would indicate that anyone took the elevator down to the lab before I did. Cyrus had the cameras turned off when he was head of G.H. There was no surveillance when finn confronted peter on the roof and pushed him down the stairs. Or when you and finn put peter’s body in the freezer. And then the camera stays off for the next several weeks. There’s no way to know who took peter’s body. Well, like I-I told you, dante, um, david hopkins, the chopper pilot — he was supposed to pick peter up from the roof. Yeah, I let, uh, jordan know. Yeah, someone else was on the roof with peter. Right. So, I thought I’d retrace peter steps, because we know he wasn’t picked up by the helicopter. Took me to the roof, and then I found the abandoned elevator shaft, came down here to the sub-basement. I was vaguely familiar with this place. Dr. Finn? How did you get involved? I saw anna on her way up to the roof, and when she told me what she was doing, I offered to help. I thought maybe I could find some… hidden exit that peter used. Dante: Hey, jordan. What is it? Blood.

Mr. Clean clean freak a job? What kind of job? You have tons of work experience.

[ Scoffs ] Oh, you mean slingin’ hash, sellin’ perfume at department stores, cleaning houses? It was honest work, ma. It was hard work. Sometimes mike would hit the right pony and send a few bucks my way just so I could put food on the table and not send you to school in torn shirts. I know. And I appreciate that. And didn’t I send you money when I was in the military? Before you told everyone brando was dead? Okay, look, the point is, my kid deserves the best life that sasha and i can give them. And that means turning the spare bedroom into a nursery and filling it with a crib and toys and a changing table. Well — well — okay. Where am i supposed to live? And who would even hire me? I’m not as young as I used to be.

I will hire you, gladys. Work at deception. I guess I just haven’t gotten used to the idea that I’m marrying my best friend. Kevin was my friend long before we fell in love. Those are the best marriages. Okay, well, did your friendship change after you got married? If anything, we just got closer, you know, because we started out as friends. Kevin gave me this amazing sense of stability, you know, that no matter how crazy life got, and it did, I knew that kevin would be there to catch me if I fell. And we can disagree, you know, and we still like each other, and — and we respect each other. We work well together.

[ Chuckles ] We complement each other, you know? And over time, our feelings for each other just deepened. You’re very lucky, laura. I am. I give thanks every day for kevin. I don’t know how I would have gotten through this tragedy with lulu without him. When I was a kid, I used to think my parents were perfect. But then I grew up, and I realized they make mistakes just like everybody else. Do you think my mom lied to me about when she started seeing curtis? I don’t know your mom like you do. I mean, does it seem like something she’d do? Blow up someone else’s marriage? My mom’s not like that. Then she probably didn’T. You’re right. It’s just unsettling because if something sketchy was happening, and curtis could do that to commissioner ashford, he could turn around and do it to my mom. Yeah, but at the end of the day, I mean, your mom and curtis are adults. What they do is their business, not yours. Wrong. The secrets that jordan kept from you have nothing to do with what I choose or don’t choose to tell my daughter. I respectfully disagree. See, secrets are alike in one pivotal way. They’re like — they’re like ticking time bombs, and they’re ready to explode, hurting everyone that’s close to them. There’s already too many people who know about the affair that we had while you were still married to taggert. Marcus would never, ever tell trina, and neither would jordan. And I know your aunt stella likes to stick her nose where doesn’t belong, but I don’t even think that she would want to hurt trina in that way. Okay. I know laura wouldn’t say anything. But when this many people know about a secret, it’s bound to get out, intentional or not. I’m really surprised you’re not worried about this. And I’m surprised how hard you’re pushing me to go against my better judgment…

[ Sighs ] …And tell my daughter something that — that serves no purpose and that I don’t think she should know. Hold on. Are we having a fight? Not very much. Yeah, well, we’ll get forensics in here. If peter made his way down here from the roof, he could be hurt. Or did he hurt the person that he was on the roof with? Check the corridor, see if there’s any other evidence. Yeah, you check the west side of the sub-basement. I’ll check the east. Will do. Hey, this is officially a crime scene, so don’t touch anything. Oh. We already did. Yeah, we were in such a rush that neither finn or i thought to glove up. So you’ll just — you’ll have to tell forensics to account for our fingerprints and dna. I’ll let them know.

[ Footsteps receding ] Thanks for covering for me. But what happens to you if jordan finds out you’re withholding information? The camera was off for weeks after peter disappeared. I mean, anybody could have made it to the basement without being seen. That’s the point, jason. Nobody goes down there. Most people don’t know the sub-basement even exists. It’s not even on the hospital floor plans.

[ Sighs ] Okay, just take me through what happened again. Alright? Not — just what you saw, not what finn told you. I just need to know everything that you remember. Okay. I was worried about finn. When I got to the 10th floor stairwell, I found peter’s body lying on the landing. Elizabeth: Peter? He was bleeding from the back of his head, and it was obvious that he had fallen. So I went to check his pulse, couldn’t find one. Can you hear me? I looked up, and I saw finn standing in the doorway to the roof, and then he came down the stairs. Peter was dead. Finn couldn’t risk a police investigation while chase was critical.

[ Sighs ] And that’s when I remembered the elevator on the roof that goes straight down to helena’s lab. So we dragged peter’s body… up to the roof and into the elevator and… down to the lab, and put him in the freezer. And then I went back to the stairwell to clean up the blood and make it look like nothing ever happened. Okay, you sure you checked peter’s pulse? Yes! There was no pulse. He wasn’t breathing! Okay, what about finn? Did he check peter’s pulse? I think so. I — honestly, I don’t remember. I don’t — I don’t know. Why? Maybe he wasn’t dead. Of course he was dead, jason. Finn and I know what dead looks like. You guys were panicked, and you were rushed. Maybe you made a mistake. So you think peter climbed his way out of the freezer and just walked away? Either that or someone saw you and finn put peter in the freezer, and somebody came and took his body. I think anna and finn may have some answers, so I’m calling finn. Don’t worry about me. They believe that peter’s still alive, and with no body, there’s no evidence of a crime. Except for this blood. They can’t connect that to you. So we just let them assume that peter’s alive. We can’t be sure he’s not. At philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. You need only the freshest milk and cream. That one! And the world’s best, and possibly only, schmelier. Philadelphia. Schmear perfection. Hey, it’s me…your skin. Some cleansers get us clean – but take my moisture.

Aleve it, and see

what’s possible. Work at deception? As…a model, like elizabeth hurley? I was thinking something more administrative. We have an assistant position open. You would be answering phones, helping with scheduling, handling e-mail. Mm. That sounds tedious. Mom. Gladys, what do you think of when you think of deception?

[ Sputters ] Glamour, beauty, uh, perfect women. And that is what people will think of you when they hear that you’re working for the company. They will know that you have a glamorous job dealing with beautiful people. They will be in awe of you, knowing that you are part of deception’s world. Um… can I have free makeup, all the products? Of course. Then I’ll take it. But the first person who asks me to make coffee — will be told to make their own coffee.

[ Laughs ] When michael was a baby, all I wanted was to marry jason. And now I’m actually marrying him. I know it’s the right thing for me and my family. I do. Why do you sound so unconvinced, carly? Because I’d just — I’d like to — I’d like to think that sonny would approve of my marrying jason. Or is that just wishful thinking? Something I tell myself to feel better about moving on so soon after sonny’s passing? Oh, honey. I know that sonny just adored you, and I believe that he would understand. In fact, I think that he would be grateful that jason is there to look after you. With no body and a potential blood trail, we have to at least consider the possibility that peter is still alive. Maybe you want to believe that because it exonerates me or, at the very least, reduces the charges. The only thing that you can be certain of is that you put him in this freezer, and he’s not there. Mm. So we have to figure out what happened to him. Where do we even begin? That is the question of the hour. I think we divide and conquer. I’ll take the police, and you go and find elizabeth. She clearly wanted to say something to you when she interrupted our conversation earlier. Okay. Okay. Anna. Thank you. Finn and I have been torturing ourselves ever since this happened, afraid to leave peter’s body in the freezer in case somebody finds him, unable to move it, and… what if we’ve been worrying all this time for nothing? What if somebody actually came in and moved the body the minute we left the lab? It’s the best thing that could happen. Peter’s gone. No body, nothing to cover up. It’s like it never happened. Right.

[ Knock on door ] Finn: Elizabeth, it’s me. I got your message. Hey. Oh! It’s okay. Jason knows everything. So does anna. Well, then, did you find the body? Did you move it? There was no body. There was nothing in the freezer. It was empty. And the pcpd are investigating. Do they know? Anna covered for me. What about elizabeth? I left her out of it. No one knows you were involved. Anna. I’ve called in my top crime-scene investigators and forensic specialists to investigate what happened down here. What about the k-9 unit? They were my first call. Hey. Found something.

[ Chuckles ] Sasha, you won’t regret hiring me. See you at home. Bravo, ms. Gilmore.

[ Door closes ] Bravo. You deserve the gold medal in handling gladys corbin. That — that — that takes years of hard practice. What — do you know what you got yourself into? Keeping your mom busy and out of our lives. Now we can finally have some privacy before the baby comes. Yeah, before our lives explode into a million pieces of joy mingled with dirty diapers.

[ Laughs ] I think the joy will outweigh the dirty diapers. I’m counting on it. So, what are you going to do about your mom and curtis? Well, first thing on the list is keeping an eye on curtis, and if he isn’t treating my mom right, he will know pain, and a lot of it. Well, I almost feel sorry for that man. Remind me to never get on your bad de. I can’t think of any situation where that would

ever happen. Same here. No, we’re not having a fight. We’re having a disagreement, and it’s over. Okay, well, fight or disagreement, I just don’t want you mad at me. Trina’s anger was scary enough. Oh, where do you think she got it from?

[ Both laugh ] Do you want to have some more wine? Well, now, that just depends on you. Um… why don’t we save the wine till after you speak with jordan and after our first official date? Mm. And what does that date look like to you? Well, definitely dinner, some candlelight, a little bit of soft music, and we’ll see where the night takes us from there. Found more blood in the corridor. How much? If it belongs to peter august, he’s hurt pretty bad. Well, we’ll find out. I just told anna I’m throwing everything at this. What’s your first step? Finding the man who was on the roof with peter. You know, I-I do think sonny would approve of my marrying jason. But it doesn’t make you miss him any less. No.

[ Sighs ] No, it doesn’T. You know, the thing about marriage is that it’s not a sprint, you know? I-it’s definitely a long-distance race that’s made up of a million different moments shared between two people, big and small. I personally think it’s a huge advantage to go into that with someone you already know and you trust. You know? Yeah. [ Chuckles ] And I think over time, jason will just take more and more of your heart. That’s how it was for kevin and me.

[ Sighs ] Thank you for keeping me off jordan’s radar. Of course. I think anna suspects someone helped me move the body, but she’s keeping quiet, and the police believe peter’s alive, so we have that working for us. What do you think? I mean, as long as the cops don’t know you guys put peter’s body in that freezer, I think you’re off the hook… for now.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Anna: Is this where Peter went? Did he hide down here before escaping? Did he escape, Finn?

Finn: No. He’s in there.


[ Indistinct chatter ]

Hmm. Ugh, you and that phone.

Well, it’s not like you’re free from your own, Mom.

Hey, I only use my phone to make calls, texts, and send e-mails.

Oh, and to spy on your children.

No, I would call that monitoring my children.

Oh.

So, what’s going on with you? How come you’re not hanging out with Trina and Cameron?

[ Sighs ] Thing is, uh — is there’s something that you should —

Sorry to interrupt a mother-daughter moment, but I wanted to say hello.

Hello, spencer. Josslyn told me you were back in town. So did a few of my hotel staffers.

The attendants here were very helpful after I took an unexpected swim.

Oh, my gosh. You really should be more careful this close to the pool edge.

Oh, I definitely learned my lesson.

Oh, one can only hope. Hey, mom!


[ Door creaks ]

[ Sighs ] I thought we were getting that thing fixed.

Oh, the carpenter said he’s gonna come by to repair it.

On second thought, maybe we shouldn’t fix it. That thing is better than an alarm system. I even heard it screech last night when you finally came home.

The hospital is working you really late these days, huh?


[ Upbeat club music plays over speakers ]

So, when do we take this leap of faith?

There’s no time like the present.

[ Upbeat music resumes ]

Checking out the competition.

Man, I have to admit, the sunset views here sure look better than mine at the nightclub.

Yeah. Good to see you, man.

Good to see you, too.

[ Laughter, chatter ]

So, how does it feel to be a free man?

Uh, hard to describe. The short answer is that it feels damn good.

[ Chuckles ] Alright. What about the long answer?

Well, freedom doesn’t always mean free from problems or challenges. I’ve still got plenty of those. Starting with my search for whoever shot Hayden. I was hoping you can help me out.


[ Knock on door ]

Officer: Commissioner? Someone’s asking to see you.

I know the officer’s only doing his job, but can you please tell him that I’m family?

It’s all right. She is family.

Yes, commissioner.

Stella… [ Sighs ] What can I do for you?

You can tell me what you are doing to salvage your marriage before you lose my nephew altogether.


Elizabeth: Scott! Hi. Thank you for meeting me.

Hey. Sure, my pleasure. But — but it sounded really urgent on the phone.

Yeah, um… how does the law define justifiable homicide?


Spinelli. Hacking into the security cameras bought me a little time.

Thank you.

Are you still there? There’s something else I need you to do.


Peter’s in the freezer.

That’s right. Peter august is dead. I killed him.


When did you get back to port Charles, spencer?

A few days ago, but that’s no excuse. I should have come to see you before now to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I really admired uncle sonny. In my opinion, he was a great man. I’ll miss him.

Thank you. And the flowers you sent were beautiful.

I only wish I could have delivered them in person, but the situation with, uh, my father marrying that woman… I know you understand.

I do understand. I do.

[ Chuckles ] And I understand congratulations are in order. You and Jason are engaged.

We are, yeah.

Well, I must say, this is the happy ending you both deserve.


I only stopped by to grab my tablet and head back out to the pool, so I’ll make this quick.

Okay. The hospital’s working you way too hard. Last night, they kept you until after midnight.

Actually, I-I, um… I wasn’t working last night. I went out.

Out? Like, out-out? For fun?

Is it that impossible to believe?

Yes! By yourself?

Well, no. Terry…[ Sighs ] She invited me to go out, and I said yes.

That’s great! Better than great. Where?

Oh, here, there.

You know. Imagine if you asked me where I was, and I said that.

Okay, fine. Um, eventually, terry and I ended up at the savoy… with Curtis.


Yo, man, you know, I’m no longer in the pi game, right?

Yeah, TJ told me. But the fact is, your ex-partner is helping me with the actual investigation.

Sam? Okay. Yeah. Um, well, Sam’s one of the best. If anybody can help you find Hayden’s shooter, it’d be Sam.

Yeah, I’m counting on it. But I also know you did a deep dive on the case.

Yeah, and I got exactly nowhere. You do know Hayden and i were friends before she left?

I remember.

Well, um, I never found a smoking gun. If I did, I would have immediately notified the cops.

Well — but we never really could find who Hayden’s shooter was.

Well, I know you were thorough, which is why I’m wondering if there was something in, you know, your old files — something that may not have even clicked back then that might mean something now.

I’ll revisit my old records, see what I can find. It’s the least I can do.

Thanks, man. Look, I just want you to know that I know you’ve already done plenty, and I’m grateful.


My marriage is not open for discussion, and this conversation is over.

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry, Jordan, but if it takes a little tough love to get you to follow your heart —

I followed it. Just like you encouraged. I went to go find Curtis to tell him that if he wanted to roll up his sleeves and make this marriage work, that I would be right beside him.

Oh, now you’re talking. Did you find him?

Oh, I found him alright. At the savoy. I also found the answer I was looking for… and it wasn’t the answer that you or I wanted.


Alright, Elizabeth, just a little piece of advice — if you’re gonna talk about justifiable homicide, you should do it when there’s, you know — there’s — nobody’s near you. I mean, to your lawyer.

Okay, well, nobody’s near us now, so — yeah, I think it should still be a little hush-hush.

[ Sighs ] Oh, my god. Now, just between you and me… what kind of trouble are you in?

No, this isn’t about me. This is about —

Oh, right.  [ Sighs ] A friend, right? 99% out of 100%, when somebody says, “it’s about a friend,” there never is a friend.

Well, this time, there is.

Okay, alright. You’re gonna stick to your story. You want to take me for a buggy ride? Fine. So, this friend — why did they kill whoever it was that they killed?

Desperation. Uh, outrage. The thing is, is that my friend didn’t mean to kill this other person, so it was self-defense.

Well…[ Stammers ] No. Okay, okay, okay. First things first, Elizabeth.  [ Sighs ] You didn’t kill anybody?

Scott, no! This isn’t about me.

Yes, it is about you, Elizabeth. I’m sorry to snap at you, but if you know that your friend killed somebody or anything about it, that makes you an accessory to murder.


Finn: After all the lives that Peter destroyed, is it really that hard to believe he’d meet a violent death?

Anna: No, I mean, I’m not having trouble believing that he was killed. I’m having trouble believing that you did it.

Finn: [ Sniffs ] Believe it, because it’s true. I’m the one who found Peter on the roof waiting for a helicopter to try to help him escape. I pleaded with him.

Peter: Stay out of my way, Finn. My daughter’s out there.

Finn: And my son is dying downstairs. Give me what I need to save him.

Finn: I confronted him about chase.

Peter: I don’t know what to tell you, Finn… except if chase dies… blame Anna.

Finn: His answer was to throw the antidote off the roof.

Finn: No!

Finn: And then he tried to leave, and I…

Finn: You’re not walking out —

Finn: I couldn’t let that happen.

Peter: Get off of me! Aaaah!

Finn: So, yeah. It’s all true. I killed Peter august. I threw him face-first down a flight of stairs. He hit his head hard on the way down. He died.

I’m sorry.

Finn: That I killed him?

Anna: No. That you’ve had to bear the weight of what you did.

Finn: Yeah, well… it goes against everything that I stand for. But if I had to face Peter on that roof again… under the circumstances… I wouldn’t do a damn thing different.


You and Jason will be perfect life partners. And I hope it’s not presumptuous of me to say that I think that uncle sonny would have approved.

Thank you.

I guess there’s something safe and familiar about falling in love with a friend. How to explain how joss and cam wound up together.

Spencer!

Joss and cam? What?

Well, yes, that’s —

I know, I can’t believe it, either. I mean, it’s certainly true that they’ve known each other most of their lives, but I’ve always credited joss with a more adventurous spirit. I would figure that, you know, she’d be drawn more to someone that’s… what? You haven’t told your mother?

[ Gasps ]

[ Sighs ] Josslyn!

God, I wish he’d stayed in Italy.

[ Gasps ]


Oh, so you and terry had a drink with Curtis?

No. No, sweetheart. Um, terry encouraged me to seek out Curtis, and I did.

Oh, so, you and Curtis…

It’s a new thing — for both of us.

[ Laughs ] You know I haven’t really dated that much since me and your father split up — at least never seriously, right?

And never, ever talking to me about it.

Did you want me to stop?

I didn’t say that.

Well, Curtis and I, we really enjoy each other’s company. You must have noticed that.

I knew you were close. I mean, Curtis called the night Cyrus took us hostage and wound up coming to our rescue. And when Curtis was shot, we kept vigil at G.H. So, I mean, it makes everything make sense.

But my interest in Curtis, I-I mean, it’s not because he risked his life to save us. It’s because of the man that he is. I like being with him, and I’d like to spend more time with him.

So…?

How are you feeling about all that?


Shawn: You know, one of the toughest things about prison was being locked away from TJ. Sure, he was on the right track and doing well in school, but he was also at a pivotal point in his life, and it’s easy for a young man to lose his way, you know, turn down the wrong road. TJ needed guidance and a strong role-model, and since I wasn’t able to be there for him, you were.

[ Sighs ] Man. I’m just thankful you came to port Charles when you did.

One of the best moves I ever made.

Nah, man. You’ve always been a real good friend. You know, someone I can count on and turn to. Despite what happened with tommy.

Uh, we all made a lot of mistakes back in the day. I don’t know anyone blameless.

Man, those mistakes could have easily put a wedge in between us, but you didn’t let it. No, you made the friendship more important. You made it a point to always be there for me and TJ… and I just want to say thank you, truly. You’re a good man.

That means a lot coming from you. Much respect.

Cheers, brother.

Cheers.


Uh, Elizabeth, for it to be justifiable homicide, the person that committed the crime would have to prove that he was in a situation where it was kill or be killed.

I see. But what if —

I also recall coming to visit a friend of yours that, uh, was afraid that they were gonna be hauled in for questioning on the disappearance of Peter august. And I know that that friend was very important to you.

Okay, um, so, what if that friend needed your help?

It would be a conflict of interest.

What conflict?

Elizabeth, you are my top priority. I will do everything in my power to protect you. So, now, you’ve got to tell me what’s going on so that I can help you out of this mess that you’re in before it’s too late.


Spinelli. Did you find it?

Whatever happened, I-I know you’re not a murderer.

A jury of my peers might disagree.

You confronted Peter. You shoved him. He fell down the stairs, and he hit his head. You tried to help him, didn’t you?

I checked for breathing. And a pulse. There was nothing. There was… nothing I could do. He was gone.

And you’re certain?

Yeah, well, you know, I didn’t spend a lot of time lingering over the body, alright? I had other priorities, like trying to keep chase alive.

And you didn’t feel you could come to me?

Knowing Peter was dead wasn’t gonna bring you any closer to finding Louise. And I couldn’t risk leaving violet without a father. Her mother already abandoned her. How could i leave her, too?


Josslyn: [ Sighs ] This is getting annoying.

Oh, tell me about it.

What the hell is wrong with you?

How was i supposed to know that you were keeping your romance a secret from your mother?

Mm.

I thought you two shared everything.

Oh, we do. In fact, I was just about to tell her before you had to open your big mouth! God, remind me to tell Trina to not even waste her time with you. She is so out of your league.

Okay, here.

Thank you.

You’re in town five minutes and you’re already causing trouble?

Yeah. Excuse me, please. I want to talk to my daughter. Sit down.

[ Sighs ] You have got to stop pushing that kid in the pool.

Yes, I know.

I’m serious. It’s a safety regulation, okay? Stop.

I’m sorry. And I’d love to promise that it won’t happen again, but if spencer is sitting close to a pool edge running his mouth about something that is none of his business —

Find another way to shut him up, okay? Because if spencer hits his head, Nikolas will sue me.

Okay. But he is a jerk, and he totally deserved the dunking.

I agree with you on that.

[ Sighs ] I hope Trina stays away from him.

Okay, what do you want to talk about first? Trina and spencer, or you and Cameron?


Okay, I’m not sure what’s happening here. Are you asking me for dating advice? Because that would be weird.

Oh, don’t worry. I’m not asking for your advice. And I’m definitely not asking for your permission. But I do want to know how you feel about it. I mean, do you have a problem with me dating Curtis?

Uh… [ Stammers ]

You can be honest with me.

Mom, all I want is for you to be happy.

[ Chuckles ] But?

It’s just, how long have you and Curtis — I-I mean, I saw the signs and thought something was there. Was I right?

Well, Curtis and I — I-I-I mean… yes. Yes, we have feelings for each other. But it wasn’t until last night that we decided to own up to those feelings and see where this is gonna go.

Any idea where that might be? Going, I mean.

Not yet, but I’ll keep you posted.

[ Chuckles ] Thanks.

You know, I just wanted to tell you first. I don’t want you hearing it from anybody else, you know?

I’m glad you told me.

What?

What?

What is it?

It’s just, does commissioner Ashford know? Because I thought you two were friends.


I walked into the savoy just in time to see Curtis and Portia in…a close moment.

Oh, I see. How close?

Close enough that their lips were touching.

I see. [ Sighs ] What did you do? What else? I left. You just walked away?

What was i supposed to do? Pull out my sidearm and tell them to freeze?

[ Sighs ] Jordan, I understand you’re hurt, angry. But let’s face it, Portia and Curtis share a past, and that can be a powerful draw. On second thought, maybe you did the right thing by leaving. This way, I can have a talk with Curtis — or Portia. Maybe I’ll just sit them both down.

Stella, stop. Please, just let this go. Our marriage didn’t work. Curtis moved on. And now I need to move on, too.


Look, I could never replace you. Or — or tommy, for that matter. But I did the very best I could to be a father figure to TJ for as long as I could. That is until, you know, things between Jordan and I.

Yeah, well, I was, uh — I was sorry to hear you two were splitting up. But just because the marriage is ending doesn’t diminish the family you helped create. Hey, you want proof? Look no further than TJ and molly. I wouldn’t be here now if molly hadn’t called out judge Carson for targeting defendants of color.

[ Chuckles ] Those kids are a hard act to follow.

You got that right. Sometimes, I think, uh — I think TJ is the man I’ve always wanted to be.

[ Chuckles ] All we can do is try, right?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. Well, in the meantime, besides running the hottest club in town, now what else is new in your life, man?

The nightclub has me busy most nights. So, in the afternoons, I come here to recharge.

Yeah, uh, there are definitely worst places.

[ Chuckles ] You know, Shawn, tell me if I’m out of line, but, um, after you track down the person who’s responsible for Hayden’s shooting, what happens next?

Well, I’m keeping my options open. Why?

Because of the savoy. That’s my baby, and I’m working to assemble a team that I can trust.

Mm-hmm.

And I could certainly use a man with your skills.


So, if your friend killed who I think they did, they should be given the keys to the city. But it’s not about what’s right. It’s about the law.

Shouldn’t those two things be the same?

[ Sighs ] Well, theoretically. But, Elizabeth, the longer you stay quiet, say nothing, you know, you’re committing a crime. So, you need to tell me what’s going on so I-I can help you here.

Don’t you think I would if I could? There are other lives involved, other people who would suffer if I came forward.

Really? So, this friend, he really means a lot to you?


Think I probably owe you an apology.

For what?

Being so hard on you about keeping things from me.

[ Scoffs ] I never imagined myself living in a glass house and throwing stones. It’s — it’s not the same thing. Don’t let me off the hook.

I really wish I could. So, I-I — I need to ask you a question. Go ahead.

So, you — you confronted Peter on the roof, and you pushed him. He fell down the stairs, and he hit his head. And then what? You — you transported him here?

Yeah, that about sums it up.

Okay. How? You couldn’t have done it alone.


cam and i just started… you know, seeing each other, and I didn’t want to say anything until I knew there was something worth saying something about.

Okay. That’s weird — and great! And I’m happy for you.

You’re happy, right?

As long as you’re happy.

Yeah.

Does your dad know?

Not yet. And, please, you know, let me tell him.

I’m not gonna say anything. I won’t. I won’t.

Great.

You know that you can come to me about anything, right?

Yeah, I know. I know that. And I want you to know that this came as a surprise to me and cam, too. I mean, Trina’s told us that we were the last people to know.

Yes, that does happen sometimes.

[ Laughs ] Is that what happened between you and Jason?


I don’t want to hurt Jordan. And I hope that we can find a way to remain friends through this. But before I speak with her — which I most certainly will do — it was just so important that I speak to you about it first.

I’m glad you told me. I was expecting to get my tablet and be on my way, but this was kinda nice.

I’ll take “kinda nice.”

[ Both laugh ]

Well, I hope everything works out for you. Or, I hope everything you want to happen, happens. Is that good?

That’s good. I’ll take that, too.

Well, I texted joss I’d meet her, so…

Yeah, no, no. Go, go, go. Have fun. But you know what? I just — I just — I’m just so glad we were able to have this talk. You’re gonna be living on campus soon, and it’s just important that we keep this line of communication open. Right?

Right.

[ Door closes ]

[ Exhales sharply ] That went better than I thought it would. [ Sighs ]


Well, what kind of, uh, skills are you looking for? A bouncer for the velvet rope?

[ Laughs ] Nothing like that. Ah. But I’m pretty sure you’d be good at that, too.

Mm-hmm. I’m looking for somebody to help me run the place, and I hear you have managerial experience. At Kelly’s.

A diner, not a nightclub.

Okay, obviously, there are some differences, but the way I see it, what you don’t know, you could learn on the job.

Oh, man, I — look, I appreciate the offer.

I-I know what you’re gonna say. But I’m telling you this right now — this isn’t a handout. You would actually be helping me, because I need somebody that I can trust.

Ahhh… I want to say yes.

Then say it.

But, look — if you’re looking for something long term, I can’t give you that. My plans are to find whoever shot Hayden, and after that’s done, I need to figure out what kind of work I really want to do. You know? What kind of life I want to lead. But all I do know that’s for certain is, I’m my own boss, man.

I get it. Having owned my own pi firm, now owning a nightclub, both mean one thing — I’ve been my own boss, so I see why you want the same. But, um, what you’re talking about, these are future plans, correct?

Well, there’s no actual plans yet.

Right. So, until you put those plans in place, I could sure use you at the savoy. Just a couple of friends helping each other out, huh?

That’s what friends are for.

Ehhh… then I accept.

Alright. Welcome to the team.

Alright, alright. When I should start?

Brother, you can start when you get ready.

Damn, man. I wasn’t expecting to get out… [ Sighs ] …For a long time. But all of a sudden… here I am.

And I’m here for you, when you’re ready.


My friend needs help. I’m not gonna turn on him.

Okay, Elizabeth. I mean, I-I admire your loyalty. I do, I really do. But I — my advice to you is to just stay quiet. Don’t talk to anybody, because justifiable homicide does not apply in this particular crime. So, if the police come knocking at your door, dummy up and call me. Is that understood?

Understood.


Peter and i were alone on the roof when I confronted him. What happened after that is on me, and no one else.

I hear what you’re saying. But, um, like I told you, if my instincts led me to you, odds are the PCPD won’t be far behind. And the more I know, the more I can help you.

I told you everything.

If you did have help, it’s understandable that you’d want to protect them.

There’s no one else. So there’s nothing left to say. Once you open this freezer, you’ll see what I did.


Well, it was a little different for me and Jason.

Well, I know you guys have been friends forever.

Yeah, for more than half our lives.

If we’re talking percentages, cam and I have been friends pretty much all our lives. And, I mean, if it took you guys that long to figure it out, I guess it’s kind of the same.

Yeah, we could, like, all wear matching outfits and stuff.

Oh, my god, no.

[ Laughing ] Thank you for the offer, but I’ll pass.

It’s too bad you two don’t get along.

Oh! Never have. Never will.


Oh! I wanted to come say hi, but you and Curtis seemed like you were having a very important discussion.

Oh, it was. Okay. Well, I’ve gotta run, but not before I do this.

[ Both chuckle ] Yeah. Please don’t tell me I’m all grown up now.

Well, even if you are?

[ Stammers ] I know. It has been a while. A minute or two, yeah. Stop, you’re gonna make me cry at the pool. Okay, bye. Bye.

[ Laughs ] Well, she has grown all up.

Oh, god, you don’t know the half of it.

Well, I’d love to hear what I’ve missed.

And I would love to share that with you. But first, I want to talk about you and your future and hoping that it has something to do with me and my family. Where have you been? What’s going on?

Oh, my god, joss. You’re not gonna believe this.

Believe what?

[ Sighs ] I’m already enthralled.

On second thought, maybe this was a bad idea.

Huh. No argument here.

[ Sighs ]


[ Door creaks ]

Please. [ Chuckles ] Hi. Um, what the hell is that?

Oh, just a little souvenir from when you kicked the door in.

Oh, right. Sorry about that.

Don’t be sorry. You saved our lives.


Signed, sealed… and on its way to be delivered to the courthouse. Feel better now?

Actually, yes. I do. Curtis is free.

[ Sighs ] I’m free. And now there’s no more looking back, no more asking myself what might have been.

[ Sighs ] I thought my nephew meant more to you.

Stella.

[ Scoffs ] I love Curtis. And at one point, he loved me, too. But our marriage didn’t work. So, once those papers are filed… the rest of my life can finally begin.


Elizabeth, can I, uh, talk to you for a second?

Whoa, wait. Whoa, whoa. Hang on a second. Is this your friend? ‘Cause he’s got his own lawyer.

No, no, it’s not Jason.

Okay, that’s good. W-we need to just — we need to talk about something else.

Okay. You do know, Jason, if anything happens to her, I will —

I know, I know. I’m gonna have to answer to you.

Yeah, you will.

Thank you for meeting me. I’ll call you.

Okay. Bye, Elizabeth. Okay.

[ Lock clicks ]

Elizabeth: Did you get my message? I think Anna knows about Peter. Please tell me you got to his body before she did.

I was afraid someday that I was going to have to identify Peter’s body. You know, that is, if I… I didn’t end his life myself. Really is the only two ways… that this could have played out.

I guess I saved you the trouble.

For as much as he hated Faison, he turned out the same way. Choices he made… led him here.


Well, Curtis and I had a conversation, and I think I’m gonna help him out at the savoy.

[ Sighs ] Okay. Well, I’m really happy for Curtis, but I’m sad for Jason and me. We could really use your expertise.

Okay, I have no doubt you can handle whatever comes up.

[ Laughs ]

Especially since you and Jason are, uh…[ Clears throat ] …In it together?

Yes, we are, and we’re very happy.

[ Laughs ] And while I’m sure you will make the savoy even more successful, I want you to know that you always have a place with us.

Well, I’ll remember that. And thank you for stabbing Jason.

Oh, anytime.

[ Both laugh ]


You know, I promised my mom I’d stop pushing spencer in the pool because it’s dangerous, but I can make an exception.

What did he do to you?

I tried to prevent Trina from making a fool of herself by attempting to “parent trap” Ava and my father.

“Parent trapping”? How?

I sent them each a drink and had the server tell them they were from each other.

That’s a great idea.

I know, right? And it would have worked if Mr. I’m not a fan of my stepmother hadn’t outed me and ruined it. That’s it. I’m done trying to help people.

Au revoir.

Ciao, loser.

[ Sighs ] So, how did spencer try to help you? Or am I reading that wrong?

Oh, no. He helped me alright. He told my mom about me and Cameron literally seconds before I was going to.

Oh, how did she take it?

I mean, it was fine, but it’s awkward.

I feel you. You know what’s even more awkward? When your mom opens up to you.


And Trina was okay with it?

She seemed to be, yes.

You told her it was me?

I did.

I mean me, not some other Curtis.

No, no. She knew the Curtis I was speaking of, yes.

Okay, so, when you told her that we were gonna start “seeing each other,” are you sure she knew what you meant?

I was very clear.

Huh.

Which was, I don’t know, kind of new.[ Chuckles ] Not just because I haven’t really dated much since Marcus and I split, but because she’s my little girl, you know?

And yet, she’s not anymore. She’s a grown woman.

Mm-hmm.

And instead of, like, her always confiding in me, it’s — it was kind of like we’re confiding in each other, you know?

Right. And how does that make you feel?

Good. It felt really good. Like my daughter and i are actually, I don’t know, becoming friends. And I could really use one of those right about now.

[ Sighs ] I assume you’re thinking about Jordan.

Aren’t you?

Yeah. Uh, I’m thinking that I’d better tell her about us before she finds out some other way.


[ Knock on door ] Commissioner, you’re wanted in interrogation.

Thanks. And thank you, Stella, for your concern.  [ Sighs ] But I do have to ask you to just —

I know, I know. You want me to mind my own business.

I do.

Then I will. And, please, don’t worry about me. I’ll show myself out.  [ Sighs ] One thing you should know by now, Jordan… my family is my business. Oh, lord, forgive me. But it’s for a good cause.


I knew this moment would come. The whole end of the road, getting caught thing. But now that it’s here, I’m almost relieved. I’m glad it was you.

Yeah. Let’s not put it off any longer, then. Ready?

Yeah.


Yes, I did get your message. I did not cross paths with Anna. Spinelli was able to take care of the security cameras so I could get to the basement unseen.

But once I got into the lab —

Just tell me what you did with the body.

Nothing. I opened the freezer, Peter’s body isn’t there.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

How long are you staying? Well, as long as I’m needed. Mm. That could be a long time. Could be. I wouldn’t want to cramp your style or anything, because I can just go if — you take another step towards the door, I might have to do something drastic. Well, I wouldn’t want that. Uh-huh. Hey, why don’t you bring us some more beer? We got a lot of catching up to do. Hey, I hope you don’t mind a splash of rum with your pineapple.

[ Chuckles ] Shades of negril. Have you been? Um, yes, actually — a long time ago. I hear you. Well, cheers to your new office. And a broad-minded parole officer.

[ Laughs ] Cheers. Cheers. Mmm-mmm-mmm. That sure is good. You know I do my best thinking on a lounge. Oh, no justification needed. Ah. We’re not slacking on the job. We’re working. Yeah, that’s right. In fact…there’s our target now. Oh, my god. Ryan? Fancy meeting you here. We have narrowed the candidates down to the two of you. It is imperative that we turn the page on cyrus renault. He nearly ran this hospital right into the ground. Agreed. [ Chuckles ] And who better to do that than the woman who led the covert effort against him? The woman whom he didn’t handpick in the first place? Just tell me what happened to peter.

[ Sighs ] Jason, I’ve got a lot going on. I’m trying to get my family back to some semblance of normalcy. Cameron is starting pcu, jake is taking a summer animation class, and aiden signed up for a baking competition. Okay, look, I don’t want to push you. Then don’T. But I can’t ignore what I just overheard. And it wasn’t just the words. It was the tone of your voice. I’m pretty sure you’re in trouble. Let me help you. You say you might have a lead on peter? It was more of a theory, really. You know, evidence is inconclusive, but it’s the best line we’ve got right now. Everything starts with a hypothesis. You think it might bring you any closer to peter? It’s difficult to say. I hope not.


Hey. How’s it going? Hey, sam. It’s been a while. You know, I’ve been better. But I just heard that you and i are part of the, uh — the same exclusive club. Your ex and my ex? Oh. Together at last. Yeah. Well, I am definitely not looking forward to that bridal shower.

[ Laughs ] I was thinking of making plans that coincide visiting day at spring ridge with my mother whether she is or isn’t available. Yeah, how is alexis? I h-heard that she earned a reprieve by exposing a biased judge. I wouldn’t exactly call it a reprieve. I mean, just because she’s not in a maximum security prison, it’s still prison. She’s just with less dangerous convicts. How the hell did you get assigned to this facility? Are you even in there? There you are. I see you. I just really wasn’t expecting that this place would have such a variety of inmates, you know? I know it’s a minimal security prison, but I was kind of expecting white-collar criminals and some maybe drunken ragers. But — but not a locked-in you. Didn’t see that coming. Just how recovered are you?

[ Gasps ] Oh! I had nothing to do with cyrus bringing me in as chief. But when I discovered what he was up to, I risked my life to stop his corruption — not only for this hospital, but for port charles. When I saw what his drugs were doing to this town, I wanted to take him down. And what I was doing was a hell of a lot more significant than gossiping at the desk with nurse baldwin. I-I don’t dispute your dedication, doctor. We were all very worried when you went into hiding. Thank goodness you had jason morgan to satisfy your needs — for safety. This hospital is trying to salvage its reputation. Cyrus renault was running drugs out of G.H. Under your watch, and one has to wonder whether you looked the other way. The board could hardly be faulted for addressing this perception with a clean break. Uh, excuse me, doctors. The lobbying is all done. We have made our decision. So, do you want to hear what it is? All ears. I’m sorry, dr. Quartermaine. While both of you are eminently qualified doctors, any hospital would be privileged to have you as chief of staff. And what about this one? Especially this one. So, congratulations, dr. Westbourne. And congratulations, dr. Randolph. You are both chief of staff. What’s that smile all about? What? I can’t smile? No, I love it when you smile. Smile all the time and preferably in my direction. But what is prompting that smile? I’m just happy to — happy to see you. I am really happy to see you, too. Hey, stubble never looked so good. I was actually gonna shave. No, because, you know, this rugged look, it really suits you. Yeah? Yeah. Maybe in nixon falls, but, you know, a little rough around the edges is not gonna go well in a big city like port charles. Oh? Yeah. You don’t know how close I came, I got to tell you, driving all the way out there… and bringing you back to me.

[ Door closes ] I’m confused. You — you went to new york to find peter. You were hell-bent on finding peter, and — and now you’re dragging your feet. What happened? Did valentin get in your head? No, he’s not in my head. Okay. Well, he’s not without guilt, right? I mean, he more than anyone shaped peter into the man he became. A-and he does regret his actions when peter was a baby. He’s as motivated as I am to make amends, protect the people we love. So if he’s all in, what has you dragging your feet? You said you would do whatever it took to bring him to justice. Well, I meant that. But when I said those things, I-I couldn’t know where the hunt would lead me or what it might — might cost when I got there. Jason, please, I-I can’t talk about this with you. If you can’t talk to me, how soon before you think you’re gonna be talking to the cops? I’m thinking of the boys. Jake, aiden, cam — elizabeth, they need you, so whatever you’re mixed up in, I can help if you just tell me what’s going on. If I tell you, I’ll make you responsible, too. Okay, I’m the one pursuing this. I accept the risk. Okay, the truth is, I’ve been wanting to tell you pretty much since the beginning because I trust you and I know you would understand. Peter august is dead.


You were on your way to port charles? Yeah, I, uh — well, I got very close, and then I restrained myself ’cause I-I thought that you — you know, I don’t want to interrupt you and your grandson. I mean, I know how important that is to you. Did you guys have a good time? You had fun? Yeah, it was a really great time. You know, he’s doubled in size and he’s tripled his vocabulary. I was — I was teaching him how to swim, and get this. He loves the pool, hates the ocean, and he — he prefers jam over jelly on his toast. Right. And, oh, and the world stops if we see a dump truck or a dog or — or… or anything under construc– am I going on a little bit too much about this? No. What are you talking about? I like seeing you happy like this. So it was a success with wiley. What about the family? They get in the way again? Wiley’s father is being very accommodating. What about the other grandmother? She — she’S… she get in the way, too, or not? You know, I was expecting a little pushback, to be honest with you, but she has — um, she has found some compassion for the situation. That’s a switch. Yeah. I mean, we’re — we’re doing it. We’re getting along. You know, I’ll give her credit where credit is due. Does that extend to your ex? ‘Cause he paved the way, right? Yeah, he did. So he’s in your good graces now? I mean, you guys — you guys working it out? You know, I would actually love to see alexis. You think she’s up for a visit? Yeah, sure. Go and try. I’m sure you’re welcome. ‘Cause I tried to visit her early on in pentonville, but I was turned away. Oh, do not take that personal because when she was at pentonville… okay. …She kept us all at bay. She didn’t want to see me, kristina, or molly. Really? Yeah, but thankfully, she’s found some sort of a purpose. She’s helping other inmates out with their parole and appeals. Although some of her prison clients leave a lot to be desired for. Well… I’m sure glad I made the cut… or I’d still be behind bars. But maybe that’s where you think I should be. Abuse of power by a bigot judge is wrong, but I also believe the person who shot hayden barnes deserves the appropriate punishment. Then we’re in complete agreement. What if I told you that shawn was not that person? Nikolas! Oh, god, I’m glad to see you. And don’t ever sneak up on me like that again. This place is not conducive to surprises, and I just got a big one. We can’t both be chief of staff. How would that work? She’s chief of staff mondays, thursdays, and sundays, and I have the rest of the week? Oh, so four days to my three.

[ Sighs ] No, I’m offering you a position of co-chief of staff. We need someone with institutional, organizational, and leadership skills. We also need someone with a fresh perspective, someone who can rally an already demoralized staff. It’s an unconventional leadership framework. Well, I’m sure the two of you will make a very good team. I can’t imagine a better duo. Maybe I spoke too soon. Finn caught peter on the roof. There was a helicopter circling above. Peter had a vial of the antidote that was keeping chase alive. He wouldn’t give it to finn. Instead, he threw it off the roof and turned around to go back downstairs, and finn just lost it. He pushed peter down the stairs. And when I got to the stairwell, peter was lying on the ground bleeding. No pulse. Finn wanted to confess, but chase would have died if finn hadn’t been around to save him. So…we did the only thing we could. You got rid of the body. We thought about telling a million times. Not because we feel guilty. Peter august was a monster, and god forgive me, I feel no remorse for what happened to him. But maxie — maxie — I feel terrible that she’s terrified that peter’s out there and might come back. But if we go to the police and we confess, a-at the very least, there’s gonna be an investigation. Yeah, I mean, the fact that you guys initially covered up what happened, that might work against you. And finn has violet to think of, and I have my boys. And we still don’t know what happened to maxie’s baby. I mean, obviously, she’s not with peter, but she’s out there somewhere. Where’s peter’s body? Helena’s lab. In the subbasement, there’s a freezer. Peter’s inside. We located peter’s helicopter pilot in new york. We hoped that they would lead us to peter or the baby or both, you know? And? I mean, any news on the baby, at least? Not peter? Well, I figured you didn’t have any news on peter ’cause you said you didn’t want to find him. Right. Um… as regards to the baby, t-the pilot had very little to offer before we arrested him, other than the fact that the original plan was to pick up maxie, the baby, and the kidnapper, but that plan fell through. Mm-hmm. I was told the police have cellphone records suggesting that the fake nurse met with somebody in the woods. Was it the pilot? Did she give the baby to him? No. No, if — if he knew where she was, he would have given her up in a heartbeat to mitigate the trouble he’s in. The irony is that if he had picked peter up, he would be dead by now because we both know peter doesn’t like loose ends. Not landing was the best thing that ever happened to that pilot. I suppose. So he was denied clearance to land, and he was circling. And he saw peter on the roof. But peter wasn’t alone up there.


back to work. And if anybody… saw us together and questions you, all you got to do is say we were talking about the animation class that jake is gonna take this summer. Okay. Jason, what are you gonna do? I’m gonna make this go away. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity, but I have to ask, since dr. Westbourne didn’t take the deal, does that mean it’s off the table for me, as well? Well, she didn’t turn it down. She just hasn’t accepted it yet. Do you think she will? Since she is the daughter of liesl obrecht and obrecht is nothing else if not pragmatic, I think she’ll see the wisdom of the choice. And if she doesn’t? It really is in her best interest to. Look, terry, cards on the table, um, I presented this as a package deal. Either you both accept it or neither one of you gets it and I go looking for another candidate. You won’t have to do that. I will put my superpower people skills to work. Think of this as your first test in your diplomatic ability as co-chief. And if diplomacy doesn’t work, you can always go for flattery. It ain’t pretty, but it gets the job done.

[ Sighs ] Jax went all-out for me, and I am greatly appreciative. Why wouldn’t you be? He made me remember why I fell in love with him, but that was then. And I’m not that woman anymore. When I’m away from port charles, I don’t think about jax. And when you’re there? I think about you. And that’s a bad thing? I should know better. Know better than to get together with a man like me? I should know better than… to think I could make it work here. But I do dream about it. I dream. Mike, I think about you all the time. And when you called me and said for me to come home, it just seemed so right. But how could I possibly stay here? How could i make a life here? How could you not? Can’t be certain about what you know… but I am certain I wouldn’t be very good at lying to you. Nor do I want to, so here we go. No, don’t say another word. Just let me speak. Peter was supposed to be alone on the roof, but he wasn’T. And it spooked the helicopter pilot, and he backed off. But not before registering peter’s companion — tall man, dark hair, wearing a suit. No one fitting that description has come forward. No one’s admitted to being on the roof with peter. So valentin and I, you know, we — we threw around a couple of theories. First theory is that person was a-an accomplice, but if that was the case, peter would have insisted that the pilot land and he would be gone. That didn’t happen. Second theory is we’re not looking for an accomplice but an adversary, someone who went to the roof to confront peter, stop him from escaping. But then why didn’t that person come forward, help law enforcement track him down? Perhaps there was an altercation. Perhaps things got out of hand. Perhaps something happened to — to peter, something unintended that put this witness in an impossible situation. Maybe he can’t come forward because it will put his future at risk… and the future of everyone who relies on him.

[ Door opens ] Finn, I just spoke to — yeah, the cameras covering the roof and roof access. I need them to go down for about an hour, starting now. Can you, uh — can you hack them? Alright. Thanks, spinelli.


I know you have your whole life in port charles, and… if you don’t want to walk away from that, I understand. But that’s — that’s not what I’m asking. You know, wiley — you can visit wiley anytime you want. It’s only like, what, a couple hours’ drive? Yeah. Are you making a case for me to stay here? How am I doing? Oh, you’re doing great. It’s very sweet. Alright. But it’s — it’s not really necessary because… mike, I’M… not really concerned about keeping and maintaining my life in port charles. I’M… I’m really worried that my life in port charles is gonna come here… taint what I have with you. Well, you know, I know the feeling ’cause I’ve been wondering when that… old me is gonna show up, and I got to be honest with you, I don’t want — I don’t want him to. When I grabbed that gun… it was — it was a-a feeling that I had inside. It was very uncomfortable, and it scared me. I will risk losing my old life if it means… having you in my life. So you turned down a plea bargain because you refused to give evidence — state evidence against sonny. You chose prison so sonny could stay out of it? Given how things ended for sonny, I came out ahead of the game. And how many years did sonny get to enjoy his life while you were stuck behind bars? Look, sonny wasn’t the only person to walk around free while I was in pentonville. I didn’t shoot hayden. Someone else wanted her dead. That person was never charged, never even investigated. I’m gonna find them. Sam: And that’s where you come in. Shawn thinks that hayden knows who was behind the shooting. If you help us find hayden, we can finally put the right guy behind bars.

[ Sighs ] Enjoy the view, you son of a bitch. Oh, that’s mature. Just so you know, he didn’t approach me. I approached him. I was relieved that you were transferred out of pentonville. Had I known that this is where you would land, sharing quarters with ryan chamberlain, I would have broken you out and been done with it. You should probably know that talk about jailbreaks is not a good idea in here. Not even in jest. Was I joking? You’ve already done enough for me, and I appreciate it. I may have one string left to pull. I don’t like you in close proximity with ryan. Look at him. He can’t move, can’t speak. He’s probably not gonna be able to murder anybody. Anyway, I don’t want to talk about him. I want to talk about you. Hi. How you doing?

[ Chuckles ] I’m up and down. Spencer’s home.

[ Gasps ] That’s great. Yeah, I’m so glad to have him back. Unfortunately… I might be losing my wife. You’re still here. Something came up. Like a conversation with my boss? You said you were going to see her. You didn’t say something about me, did you? Because that would be really crappy of you to interfere with my work like that. No, I haven’t talked to monica about you. Why would I? I don’t know. I don’t get why you do half the things you do.

[ Elevator bell dings ] I have to go. Of course you do.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] You owe me $19.97 — for the toothbrush head on my electric toothbrush. I bought a pack when I thought you might stay over. Just give me $5 since it was a pack of four and one was for you. I didn’t need a replacement head yet. I was trying to think of your comfort. I got — I got $20. Just venmo me. Dr. Finn, I need you for a consult. Dr. Goodman’s on duty. I’m dealing with something right now. Is everything okay? Yeah, everything’s okay. Hey. Don’t worry. So, now what? I don’t know what happened on that roof, but if peter was trying to escape and he was somehow prevented from doing so, I think the person who prevented him would be given a great deal of consideration. That is, if an accident occurred during that encounter. It’s too bad you’re not in charge of doling out considerations. There’s no telling what, uh, the police or a judge might do. I know. What I also know is that if I followed peter’s trail here, the police won’t be far behind because they have the pilot in custody and he’s going to have given them the same description of the man on the roof that he gave me. Whoever encountered peter that day has one chance to get out in front of this… and one chance to have me stand by his side.


If I can remember correctly, when hayden first came into town, the two of you were seemingly close. Oh, no, no, no. No, she was just trying to make finn jealous. We were never more than business associates.

[ Sighs ] You didn’t reach out to hayden when she took off? She didn’t reach out to you? No, I did. I tried, but all communication was cut off. Look, hayden wasn’t my favorite person, but she was trying to create a better life for her and her child. They seemed really close. She just met finn, and — and suddenly, he was her only parent. I mean, I-I tried everything to — to find hayden and bring her back. But no luck. None. It doesn’t make any sense. Why wouldn’t hayden at least try to contact her daughter or reach out or communicate somehow? Well, maybe by staying away, it somehow protects violet. I’m sorry about ava. I didn’t know things had gotten so bad. Is there any hope? Ava’s adamant about going through with the divorce. Well, what about a compromise? Legal separation? Ava won’t consider it. How can I blame her? I mean, the stalker — he’s broken into wyndemere, our hotel room, ava’s gallery. He’s even targeted little avery. That was the deal-breaker. Do the police have any leads? They’re working on something, but they refuse to keep me in the loop. All they know for sure is that the stalker is exploiting ryan’s obsession with ava. Ryan? It can’t be him. Yeah, so it would appear. What if it’s a-a fan or a wannabe or a familiar, someone who is just trying to impress ryan by, uh, following in his footsteps, doing his dirty work? I have to find this bastard before it becomes too late for me and ava. You know, you’re not gonna get anywhere until you can rule out a connection to ryan. I mean, it’s too bad that you don’t have anybody that’s close enough to this to suss it out. Oh, wait. Jason, I went to see finn to tell him that we talked, and anna was there. I have a really bad feeling she knows. Crazy question, but is it possible britt westbourne doesn’t entirely deserve her reputation? That is crazy. It goes against conventional wisdom, maybe, but I don’t know. Maybe beneath her snarky exterior lurks a woman who’s desperate for companionship and compassion, hoping someone will hear her cry. She once made flambé out of a little girl’s doll. No coming back from that, huh? I have better things to think about than britt westbourne. Why are you suddenly trying to unearth compassion for her, anyway? I’m just looking for a way to charm and disarm her, but you’re right. There are better things to talk about, like what’s going on with you, biz? I know my word counts for very little these days, and I wouldn’t blame anyone for being reluctant to put their fate in my hands. I’ve broken a lot of people’s trust, and I can’t apologize enough. Hey, you don’t have to do this. No, I do. I do. ‘Cause I can’t let peter… or whatever’s happened to him… I can’t let it ruin another person’s life. It was you. You were on the roof with him. Tell me what happened. Better…if I show you. There’s that smile again.

[ Laughs ] I’m just happy to see you. You know, last time you left, I had to do everything I could to — to memorize your face. Yeah. Yeah. It’s too bad, like, phones don’t have cameras and stuff like that. Oh, that’s a nice little, uh, way to kill the mood. I’m sorry. I couldn’t help it. Forgive me. Forgive me. But you don’t have to memorize my face. I’m gonna be around. I’m happy for that. Why don’t I just take a selfie for — just for — you know what I mean? Alright, let’s do it. Let’s see. You know how to use it? I’m — I’m — yeah, I do know how to use it. Okay, ’cause I’m here to help you.

[ Laughs ] Okay. Wait. Okay, ready? Cheese.

[ Camera shutter clicks ] Perfect. Oh, you look great. Thank you. You know what? What? I should have had some coffee instead of these beers because I’m just getting so tired. You know, it’s that drive back here. Maybe I should go and settle in before we have to take lenny to his treatment tomorrow. Oh, I know. That’s not gonna be fun, right? Mnh-mnh. Yeah, you should go. You’re probably tired and the whole thing.

[ Groans ] So, uh, this is better than coffee. Huh? Remember last time you left, we made a deal? And I said, “why don’t — w-why — I’ll give you my — my sauce, my special sauce, in exchange for a dance,” when you came back, right? I remember that. Alright. Well, I’m ready to collect. Mm-hmm? Yeah. How can I resist?

In your eyes

is where I wanna…


Oh. Ooh. Smooth. You didn’t miss a step. I’ve been practicing. Oh, you’ve been practicing. Yeah. I think you’re kind of a natural. One of your many, many talents. I should go.

[ Sighs ] Now I should go.

[ Chuckles ] You better go. Yeah. I’ll, um… I’ll see you tomorrow. Alright. Forget something? Hey, mike.

[ Laughs ] I let it simmer until it was hot. Mm. Best sauce I’ve ever had.

[ Door closes ] Well, if you pick up hayden’s trail again, my resources are at your disposal. Thank you, jax. Appreciate that. Yeah, absolutely. We knew it was a long shot that you had a way to contact hayden, but we had to take it. Have you tried elizabeth, hayden’s sister? I mean, if there’s anyone that hayden would feel safe communicating with, it would be her. Okay. And just one more thing — hayden and I were working together with nikolas. He brought us all together on some scheme to regain his family fortune. Oh. So you might want to start with him. Nikolas: Forget it. I don’t want you putting yourself in ryan’s sights. I’m just gonna keep an eye on him. What’s the big deal? He’s a psychopath. Look at him. He’s just staring at the corner. He’s gonna continue to sit there and stare at the corner until somebody comes in and turns him around and wheels him out of here. Alexis, you were fortunate to be transferred from pentonville. Quit while you’re ahead. Don’t go looking for more trouble. I’m not looking for more trouble, so don’t worry, okay? I think I can handle a deactivated serial killer. Sorry. I’m just distracted. Distracted or upset? Because there’s a difference. Nurse baldwin! Dr. Randolph. Excuse me. I have to pick up some labs. You and your bestie catching up on the hot goss? Actually, I was about to ask elizabeth a question about dental hygiene. How often do you change your toothbrush, dr. Westbourne? Manufacturers do recommend between three and four months, but I can only go one. Call me extravagant, but nothing short of a good, stiff bristle will do.

[ Laughs ] Were you eavesdropping on me? When I was choosing where to go to med school, I almost turned down my first choice because my ex was going there, too. The thought of taking gross anatomy with that cretin was almost more than I could bear. But then I got a grip. Hell if I was gonna turn down one of the best schools in the country and let my ex think I was floundering because of him. If I turn down a demotion, it won’t be because of jason. One — it’s not a demotion, and two — are you sure?

[ Knock on door ] What is it, robert? The security cameras, the ones mr. Renault had turned off to cover his illegal comings and goings? Yes. You — you re-installed them. So what is it? We installed software to alert us to future tampering. The alarms are sounding. Someone’s trying to get in. It’s elizabeth. I need your help. Whoa. Haven’t been down here since olivia jerome took griffin. Yeah, it’s been here a long time. The hospital tried to keep it sealed off without much success. Yeah. Is this where peter went? Did he hide out here before he escaped? Did he escape? No. He’s in there.

General Hospital Updates

GH logo

Update written by Deb

Nikolas and Spencer enter Metro Court pool area. Spencer tells Nikolas to chill out and enjoy the sun and hanging out with his son, unless that isn’t what he wants. Nikolas says he does, so Spencer tells him to get something to drink while he goes and changes into his suit. As Nikolas strolls up to the bar, Ava and Trina enter and head to the bar. Nikolas looks please to see Ava.

Shawn enters the police station and greets Jordan, telling her he brings some news. Sam is with Alexis in the interrogation room and talking how much nicer it will be for her at the new facility, being able to walk outside. Alexis walks away and Sam realizes how difficult things are for her. Sam apologizes to Alexis and Alexis tells her not to worry, that at least Sam is putting a positive spin on everything.

Lenny enters the Tan-O dining area with Phyllis’s, carrying a beer keg. “Mike” is at the bar and goes around and grabs the keg from Lenny. Phyllis is telling Lenny he needs to take it easy, as that was the instruction from the doctor. Lenny tells Phyllis that he wants things in order before he goes into the hospital. Phyllis looks frustrated and sighs. There is a knock on the outside door, and Phyllis, exasperated, says, “We don’t open for another hour.” “Mike” tells her that he’ll get the door. Phyllis and Lenny exit the dining area as “Mike” goes to answer the door. As he opens the door he says, “Sorry, we’re closed.” Nina is standing at the door, and they both smile. They say hello and they hug each other.

Anna and Valentin are in the Quartermain drawing room. He apologizes to her for not being with her last night. She tells him he needed to be with his daughter, who is an angel. Valentin says, “She doesn’t get it from me.” Anna replies, No.”  He asks her about her new theory, and she reluctantly tells him they should be looking for Peter’s enemy.

Elizabeth and Finn greet each other in the hospital hallway. They discuss how much fun it was to watch Violet at her T-ball game, to do something normal and not over think about Peter Austin. Terry walks around the corner and asks, “What’s this about Peter Austin?”

Britt is walking down the stairs in the hospital, thinking about her time with Jason in the gym boxing ring.  She shakes her head and whispers to herself to get it together. She turns as she hears Jason asking for Dr. Quartermain. She turns her head and sees Jason speaking to a nurse at the nurse’s station. The nurse says she isn’t in her office, but she can have her paged. Jason thanks her and sees Britt on the stairs. Britt continues down the stairs. Britt stops at the nurse’s station and turns toward the desk. Jason asks her if it is okay if he says hello. Britt defensively says, “It’s okay to say hello, as long as you know where we stand.” Jason replies, “As long as you know where to find me if you need me.” Britt replies, “I won’t need you.” Austin enters the nurse’s station telling Britt he understands she has to sign off on everything, and he places a folder down on the desk at the nurse’s station. Britt tells him she’s a little busy, and he says it will only take a few seconds. She tells him, “So will this,” as she looks at Jason. He lightly says okay, then turns toward Jason and says, “Hi cuz.” Jason doesn’t respond and Austin says, “Okay, not there yet. I understand.” Jason turns to leave saying he has to find Monica. Austin watches as Jason leaves and says to Britt, with a small smile on his face, “So, what’s going on with you and that guy?”

Elizabeth tells Terry that Finn was updating her on Anna’s search for Peter. Finn tells Terry that Anna hit a dead end. Terry says she’s so sorry, considering that Peter took Franco away from Elizabeth, and what he did to Finn’s brother. Terry says that if there were any real justice, someone would finish him off and be done with it. Finn looks off to the side with guilt.

Anna is saying to Valentin that they were looking for Peter’s ally, but if it was the opposite, then it all adds up. Anna reminds Valentin that David Hawkins, the helicopter pilot, said that the other man on the roof with Peter scared him off from landing. Valentin says that David was denied clearance, and Anna replies that it doesn’t seem likely that would stop him, given what Peter was paying him. Anna adds that Hopkins assumed this other man was trouble, and he wanted to avoid that. Peter didn’t call Hopkins back to say it was okay, that the man wasn’t a threat. Valentin says, “Because he was a threat.”

Nina enters the Tan-O. “Mike” asks Nina if it was hard to leave her grandson, and she replies that it was, but that this is where she belongs right now. “Mike” tells Nina that it will do Phyllis a world of good with Nina being here. Nina says she hopes so, but to be completely honest, Phyllis isn’t the only one she is there for. “Mike” and Nina look at each other.

Alexis tells Sam she is really happy that she’s being transferred, but she needs to remember that she has to serve her time, like everybody else does. Jordan and Shawn walk in, and Jordan announces that Shawn has some news to share. Shawn tells Alexis and Sam that it is official, all the paperwork is signed, and he is a free man.

At the pool, Nikolas tells Ava, as Trina looks on, that he didn’t know she would be there. Ava asks if that will be a problem, and Nikolas tells her that it won’t be. Trina says she will find her and Ava a spot and walks away. Ava explains that the gallery was slow, it was a beautiful day, and she and Trina decided to play hooky. Nikolas offers to leave it will be easier for Ava, and Ava replies, as she touches his chest with her sunglasses, “Oh Nikolas, what about us has ever been easy?” Ava walks off to join Trina and Nikolas watches her walk away. As Ava arrives at the spot Trina arranged for them, Trina says she will be right back. As Trina approaches the entry way near the pool bar, Spencer is entering. Trina tells Spencer he owes her one. He says, “Hello to you, too.” Trina tells him how it would have been so easy to let Nikolas know how Spencer had been in town for weeks before showing his face. Spencer tells her he is grateful and asks if he needs to thank her again. She says he doesn’t, especially now that she knows how he can make it up to her.

“Mike” asks Nina what she meant, and Phyllis enters and is excited to see Nina.  Phyllis tells Nina she should be with her family, and Nina tells her that she is family, too. Lenny approaches and says that Nina and he have a lot to say to each other.

Shawn lets Alexis and Sam know that the governor signed off, there is no more jail time, no parole conditions, and Judge Carson has been urged to resign or risk the consequences of a judicial review. Alexis asks about the other prisoners that Judge Carson sentenced, and Shawn tells her that the governor is reviewing all of them. Alexis asks him what is next, and he says that his focus will be on finding out who really shot Hayden.

Nikolas looks at Ava as he takes his drink to sit down near the pool. Trina grabs Spencer and tells him she has a plan, she intends to “Parent Trap” Nikolas and Ava, because they are miserable.  Trina tells Spencer that a couple on the brink of divorce who love each other, need to know they belong together. Spencer asks her, “What if they don’t?” He points out that someone hates them so much that Ava is terrified for her daughter’s safety. Trina says they shouldn’t give in, that Nikolas and Ava are stronger together. Spencer points out that the incidents have stopped since they broke up, which means this creep is willing to leave them alone now. Trina responds, “Cool, we’ll just give in to a terrorist.”  Spencer lets Trina know he was never really a fan of her boss to begin with. Trina walks off and says she will do it herself. Spencer looks frustrated.

Britt and Austin are at the nurse’s station. Britt asks for Austin’s support for the Chief of Staff position. He asks her what he gets in return. She tells him whatever he wants. He asks, “Whatever I want?” She replies, “Yes.” He tells her that okay, he is in. Britt walks away from the nurse’s station as Austin smiles.

Monica enters her office to find Jason there and they greet each other. He tells Monica that Spinelli did a deep dive on Austin, and that Austin seems to be everything he claims. Monica thanks him and Jason asks if there is anything else she needs. She tells him that he is able to read her very well, and that she would like to talk to him about his engagement.

Valentin and Anna, still in the Quartermaine drawing room, continue to discuss what Anna has begun to realize. Valentin says there were plenty of people at the hospital that day that wanted Peter brought to justice. Anna says that whoever was on that roof, Peter knew a clean getaway was impossible, there would be a witness. Valentin asks if she thinks Peter took out the other person on the roof. Anna replies that no, because nobody else was reported missing. Anna says, “The only reason that person didn’t come forward, is because they had something to do with Peter’s disappearance.” Valentin replies, “So you’re saying Peter didn’t leave the hospital because he was incapable of doing so.”

Lenny and Nina go sit at a table to talk alone at Lenny’s request. Lenny tells Nina he is so grateful for her connections that he is able to get the surgery tomorrow. Lenny tells her he still has reservations, but it is not about the cost.

Shawn says he owes it to Hayden and himself to get to the bottom of whoever shot her. Jordan tells them she and Alexis need to et going to take Alexis to her new prison. Sam hugs Alexis and Alexis tells Shawn to go live his life, and all that goes with it. Shawn tells Alexis the same.

Nikolas strolls into the pool area, and a waiter brings him a drink, saying “Compliments of the beautiful blonde on the last lounge chair.” Nikolas looks toward Ava. Spencer sits up and looks, while Trina looks on from the other end of the pool next to Ava. A waitress brings a drink to Ava, saying “Compliments of a certain gentleman.” When Ava asks which gentleman, the waitress points toward Nikolas, and Austin is standing right behind him. Ava smiles and Austin looks toward the pool.

Valentin, still in the Quartermain drawing room, asks Anna if she thinks the man on the roof with Peter that day incapacitated him, or worse. Anna replies she does. Valentin says, “And he’s been covering his tracks ever since.” Anna replies, “Yeah.”  Then Anna comments that, as Valentin said, there were any number of people at the hospital who wanted Peter dead, so it could have been anyone. Valentin replies that it could be, but that it is obvious that Anna has zeroed in on one. Valentin says it seems Anna is there because she wants him to talk her out of it, but he can’t do that. Valentin says there was one person at the hospital who had every reason to want Peter dead. Anna says, “Don’t say it.” Valentin says, “Finn.”

In the hospital corridor, Terry apologizes to Elizabeth and Finn for losing her cool about Peter. Finn tells her they appreciate it. She asks if she can still count on their support for the Chief of Staff position. Finn tells her she doesn’t even have to ask. Terry walks off and Elizabeth tells Finn she has an idea.

Elizabeth and Finn are walking outside, getting fresh air and have a private conversation. Finn says they are trapped, and Elizabeth responds that maybe not, if Terry gets the chief of staff position. Terry could make sure the cameras are turned off so they could move the body. Finn doesn’t like the idea of involving Terry. Elizabeth tells Finn that the last thing she wants is for Finn to turn himself in to protect her. Finn tells her the last thing he wants is for Peter’s body to be found with Elizabeth’s DNA on it. Finn says the best thing is if the body is never found. Elizabeth tells him there is a way, but Finn won’t like it. Elizabeth says they should get help from Jason.

Monica and Jason sit down on the sofa in Monica’s office. Monica tells Jason she isn’t trying to stop him from marrying Carly. She reminisces about AJ and how things were with Carly, and that Carly always used AJ. Monica wants Jason to know how hard it has been for her. Jason tells Monica that he wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t for Carly.

At the pool, Ava decides to thank Austin for the drink, as she assumes he was the one who ordered it. Trina tries to stop her, to no avail. Ava approaches Austin and thanks him. Nikolas jumps up and tells Ava he appreciates the gesture of good will. Trina approaches behind Ava and Spencer approaches behind Nikolas. Ava is confused, and Nikolas thanks her for the drink. She tells him she didn’t and says that Austin bought her one. Austin says he didn’t buy anyone a drink. Spencer speaks up and says that the only one buying any drinks right now is Trina. Ava turns to look at Trina, who looks guilty.

Monica and Jason, still on Monica’s sofa, Monica is letting Jason know she doesn’t judge him. Jason expresses regrets about his behavior back then, all the lies by everyone, and that he understands how things were for AJ. He tells Monica they have all grown, and that Carly understands life better now, that she has learned to trust others. He reassures Monica that Carly and he know exactly what they are doing. He lets Monica know that he understands that this is hard for her and wants to know if she can accept it. Monica tells Jason she just wants him to be happy. She asks him if this was his choice, that Carly isn’t maneuvering him into it. Jason reassures her that it is. Monica tells him that she is happy for him. She does tell him that it will be difficult for her to be in the same room with Carly, but that she thinks it is the same for Carly. Jason lets her know he appreciates that she makes the effort form him. Monica tells Jason she loves him, and that her love for him and Michael are the two things she and Carly have in common. Jason and Monica hug. Jason leaves Monica’s office.

Lenny and Nina are still sitting at a table in the Tan-O. Lenny tells Nina that there was another reason that he was against her paying for everything, that she was offering Phyllis hope, because the growth that was found is on his pancreas. And that is often a death sentence. Nina responds by saying often isn’t always. Lenny tells Nina that he can get over someone providing the money for the medical treatment, but he can’t get over someone providing his wife hope, when there isn’t any.

In the hospital hallway outside the elevators, Britt and Terry are walking in opposite directions and greet each other cordially, “Dr. Randolph.” “Dr. Westbourne.” They each mention that they notice the other having talks with their individual supporters. Britt asks Terry what she needs to do to get Terry to drop out of the competition. Britt says that since Terry is “team Elizabeth,” maybe Britt could give Elizabeth a raise. Terry responds that that is exactly why she wants to be chief of staff, that she doesn’t double deal or get into bed with scum like Cyrus Renault. Terry says she wants what is best for the hospital. Britt says she does too. Monica walks up to ask if everything is alright. Terry says yes and Britt says, “Just peachy.” Monica replies good, because she wants to see both of them in her office. Monica walks away, and both Terry and Britt gesture for the other to go ahead, both gritting their teeth.

Still in the Quartermain drawing room, Anna tells Valentin she went to the hospital to let Finn know about their progress in the search for Peter.  Valentin, caringly, asks, “And?” Anna, shakily replies, “It was all there. In his body language, the way he spoke, an uh, it just made sense suddenly.” She continued, “The description; male, tall, light suit, dark hair to the collar, it was Finn.” Valentin looks on Anna with a pained expression.

Finn and Elizabeth continue to discuss the situation while outside. Elizabeth is telling Finn that getting Jason involved will solve all their problems. Finn expresses concern that any goodwill they may have with the cops will go right out the window if they collaborate with a hitman. Elizabeth tells Finn that Jason doesn’t get caught. As Elizabeth and Finn are having their animated discussion, Jason comes along, out of sight of Elizabeth and Finn. He moves closer to hear their discussion. Jason hears Elizabeth tell Finn that Jason has dealt with people just like Peter, and he doesn’t get caught because there isn’t any evidence. Finn tells Elizabeth that he doesn’t think they can involve anyone else, that Peter was a threat, now he isn’t. They need to deal with the situation themselves.

Nina, still sitting with Lenny, tells him she believes in hope, and she believes in him. Lenny asks Nina to promise that when it becomes clear there is no more battle to fight, she won’t let Phyllis continue to hope. Before Nina can respond, Phyllis approaches and asks if they are finished. Nina wipes away tears and Lenny tells her he is so grateful. Phyllis and Lenny go hand and hand to sit at the bar, “Mike” approaches Nina and asks her if she is okay. Nina tells “Mike” she is so sorry they are going through this and that she is happy she is there, that she is…. “Mike” says, “You’re home?” Nina smiles.

Alexis and Jordan walk into a room with tables, chairs, a counter with cups, a bulletin board, and a guard standing by a window.  Jordan explains that everything is separated by gender, except for the communal recreation area, as she gestures around the room.  Alexis comments it is similar to her freshman room. Jordan reminds her that it is still a prison. She cautions Alexis that the warden will make things difficult if it appears that it is anything other than rest and rehabilitation, and she could even end up back at Pentonville.

Shawn and Sam are talking in the police station, and Sam asks him about the voice message he left her asking if she was still doing P.I. work. Shawn says he has a job for her, and Sam says she guesses it is about finding the person who committed the crime he went to prison for.

At the pool, upon hearing that Trina had planned to “Parent Trap” Nikolas and Ava, Austin asks her if she is a twin. Spencer says that Trina is trying to convince Nikolas an Ava that they are still in love with each other. Nikolas replies that she isn’t wrong. Ava turns to Trina and asks if she has anything to say. Trina apologizes. She says she realizes it was juvenile, but that she hates what all this is doing to Ava, and that Ava is supposed to be happy. Spenser says to Nikolas and Ava that it obviously can’t be easy, and to Trina he says, “But you can not play with people’s hearts like that.” Trina looks Spenser in the eyes and says, “you mean like you are?” Nikolas looks at Spenser.

In the Quartermaine drawing room, Valentin tells Anna that it is going to be difficult for her to prove that the man she loves killed Peter. Anna replies that they don’t know that Finn killed Peter. Valentin responds that if Finn was on the roof with Peter that day, Finn would know how and if Peter left the hospital. Valentin supposes that possibly Peter extorted Finn to help him escape by giving him another antidote. Anna surmises that if that did happen, Finn would have come clean to her about it. Valentin adds that it is possible that Finn did something to Peter. Anna replies that there is only one way to find out.

Outside, Elizabeth is telling Finn that she hears him, but they are not equipped to handle it on their own, they have no plan. Finn says he’ll think of one, he just needs more time.  Finn tells her everything is going to be okay as he looks at his watch. He tells her he has to get back to the hospital. Jason is still standing out of sight and listening to their conversation.  Finn walks away. Jason steps out from behind the trees and says, “Elizabeth, we need to talk.” Elizabeth looks at Jason.

At the Tan-O, Lenny, Phyllis, Nina, and “Mike” are at the bar, smiling. Lenny passes out the beer and Phyllis asks him about drinking the night before surgery. He comments that fasting doesn’t start until nine. They all lift their bottles in a toast as “Mike” says, “To Lenny.” Lenny responds, “To hell with that, to Family, the chosen one.” As they enjoy their beers, Phyllis says it’s time to open up, and Phyllis and Lenny walk off. “Mike” asks Nina how long she is going to stay, and she tells him as long as needed. He tells her it could be a long time. She replies that it could be.

At the Port Charles police station, Sam and Shawn are still talking. Sam tells him there is no way she could say no to his request, but she will have to check with her parole officer since it could violate her probation if she were to be associated with him since she still has about three months on her probation.

At the pool, Spencer tells Trina that his father already knows all about how he tried to push him and Britt together. Trina apologizes to Ava again and goes off in tears. Ava starts to go after her, but Spencer says he will. Nikolas asks Ava where that leaves them, and she tells him right where they were, in the midst of a divorce, and for her family’s safety, six weeks can’t pass soon enough. Ava walks over to Austin and offers to buy him another drink. They walk toward the bar together.

Alexis says goodbye and thank you to Jordan as she leaves the communal recreation room at the new prison. As Alexis walks over and picks up a magazine, the wheels of a wheelchair are seen being pushed along in the room by an attendant. Alexis looks up with recognition as the wheelchair is moved to within a few feet of her. The attendant locks the chair into position as Alexis continues to stare. As the attendant walks away, we see the face of Ryan Chamberlain. Alexis slowly lowers the magazine. Ryan does not look up.

Monica is meeting with Britt and Terry in her office. She is telling them that she wants them to know that she has made her official recommendation as to who should be chief of staff. Britt and Terry look at each other.

Finn is sitting in his office, toying with a pen and staring off into space. There is a knock on his door and Anna is there. Finn says, “Hi, do you have an update on Peter’s whereabouts?” Anna replies, “I just might.” Finn nods his head.

Jason approaches Elizabeth on the walkway outside and asks her what is going on. Elizabeth replies that she is fine. He tells her that if that was true, he would be glad. He then tells her things he knows, “About a week ago she told him that Peter was something we didn’t need to worry about anymore. You were about to tell me something else when Finn walked up. Now, you and Finn are in the park in the middle of a workday talking about Peter and a mess that needs to be cleaned up. Now I understand you are trying to protect Finn. You don’t have to protect him with me. Okay? Now if you know what happened to Peter all you have to do is tell me, and I will help you.” Elizabeth looks at Jason.

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Spencer: Would you cheer up already?  Sun’s out. We’re spending quality father-son time. Isn’t this what you wanted?

Nikolas: No, yeah, yeah, of course it is.

Spencer: Right. Well, why don’t you grab us something to drink while I go change into my suit?


Shawn: Hey. This a bad time?

Jordan: Uh, seems like there’s never really a good time in here. I didn’t know you were stopping by.

Shawn: Well, I didn’t know I was, either, but I just met with my lawyer. And I have news.


Sam: I’ve got to say, I’m really happy it worked out this way.

Alexis: Thank you.

Sam: A rehabilitation-based facility. They’ve got to have vocational training, therapy.

Alexis: AA meetings.

Sam: AA meetings. And just think, you can walk the perimeter without having to worry about getting chopped up by barbed wire.

Alexis: [ Sarcastically ] Hey! Sounds like heaven.

Sam: Mom… [ Sighs ] I’m so sorry.

Alexis: Don’t be. You’re putting a positive spin on it. You know, I’m really grateful for the shift, but it’s still prison, no matter how you look at it.


Phyllis: You really think this is what Dr. Kishore meant when she said to take it easy?

Sonny: Lenny. Let me have that.

Lenny: I’m fine.

Phyllis: You should be resting.

Lenny: For what?

Phyllis: Oh, I don’t know. Your exploratory surgery in Llanview tomorrow?

Lenny: Where I’ll be lying on a hospital bed. Plenty of time to rest then. Look, come on. Business is finally booming, and I want things in order if I’m gonna be laid out.

Phyllis: [ Scoffs ] An answer for everything.

Lenny: That’s why you love me.

Phyllis: No more heavy lifting.

Lenny: Deal.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ]

Phyllis: We don’t open for another hour.

Sonny: I’ll get rid of ’em.

Phyllis: Thank you, Mike.

Sonny: Sorry, we’re closed.

Nina: Hi.

Sonny: Hi, yourself.

[ Both laugh ]

Sonny: Dang.


Valentin: Sorry I couldn’t meet you last night.

Anna: Oh, don’t be silly. You wanted to spend time with your daughter. Who can blame you? She’s an angel.

Valentin: She doesn’t get it from me.

Anna: No.

Valentin: You want to tell me your new theory?

Anna: Yeah. We’ve been trying to figure out who Peter’s accomplice was.

Valentin: You think we should be looking for an enemy.


Elizabeth: Hey.

Finn: Hi.

Elizabeth: How’s Violet? Still celebrating her big hit?

Finn: Oh, yeah. According to my daughter, she’s ready to go pro.

Elizabeth: Oh, knowing her, she just might.

Finn: Right?

Elizabeth: [ Chuckles ] It was so nice doing something normal, wasn’t it?

Finn: Mm.

Elizabeth: I’ll take watching a T-ball game over thinking about Peter August any day.

Terry: What’s this about Peter?


Britt: I just want to have a good time. You remember what that is? A good time?

Jason: Vaguely.

Britt: [ Chuckles ] Top down, wind in my hair.

Jason: Oh, so, what, now — now it’s a convertible?

Britt: Obviously. Maybe I’ll take you for a ride, if you’re not too scared.

Jason: Speed doesn’t scare me.

Britt: Even with me behind the wheel?

Jason: I said you were an awful driver. I didn’t say you were unsafe.

Britt:  Oh, I am definitely unsafe.

Britt: [ Sighs ] Pull it together, Westbourne.

Jason: Hey, is Dr. Quartermaine around?

Nurse: She’s not in her office, but I can have her paged.

Jason: Thank you. Is it okay if I say hello?


Britt: You want to say hello, you can say hello. I don’t tell you what to do. Just as long as you’re clear on where we stand.

Jason: As long as you know where to find me if you need me.

Britt: I won’t need you.

Austin: Dr. Westbourne, I understand you have to sign off on everything in this hospital, so I brought you a pen.

Britt: Uh, I’m a little busy.

Austin: Okay. It’ll take like two seconds.

Britt: So will this.

Austin: Gotcha.  Hey, Cuz. How are you? We’re not there yet?  Okay, I understand.

Jason: I got to find Monica.

Austin: What’s going on with you and that guy?


Elizabeth: Finn was updating me on Anna’s search for Peter.

Finn: That’s right. She — she hit a dead end.

Terry: Oh, Biz, I’m so sorry. That monster took Franco from you, not to mention what he did to your brother. You know what? Prison would be too good for Peter. If there were any real justice, someone would finish him off and be done with it.


Anna: So, we were looking for Peter’s ally. But if it’s the opposite, then it all adds up. David Hopkins. He said he saw another man standing on the roof with Peter and that this man scared him off from landing.

Valentin: Now, Hopkins was denied clearance to land.

Anna: Yes, he was denied clearance. But do you think that would really stop him, given what Peter was paying?

Valentin: No, probably not.

Anna: Because Hopkins assumed that this other man was trouble, and he wanted to avoid that. And why didn’t Peter call him back, you know, and explain, “it’s okay. This man isn’t a threat”?

Valentin: Because he was a threat.


Nina: Surprise.

Sonny: Was it hard for you to leave your grandson?

Nina: Um, yeah, it was, but we have all the time in the world to be together, he and I, and this is where I belong right now.

Sonny: It’s good to see you.

Nina: It’s nice to see you.

Sonny: It’s — it’s gonna do a world of good for Phyllis that you’re here.

Nina: Yeah, I hope so, but… if I’m completely honest, she’s not the only one I’m here for.


Alexis: I’m really happy that I’m being transferred. I just can’t forget that I pled guilty because I am guilty, and I need to serve my time like anybody else.

Jordan: I hope you don’t mind, but Shawn has some news that he wants to share with you.

Shawn: It’s official — all the paperwork filed. As of today… I’m a free man.

Alexis: Oh! Oh.

Sam: Nice.


Nikolas: I didn’t realize you’d be here.

Ava: Is that a problem for you?

Nikolas: No, of course not. It’s always good to see you.

Trina: I’ll find us a spot.

Ava: Thank you, Trina. Uh, the gallery was — was slow, you know, what with the… beautiful weather and all.

Nikolas: Beautiful is the word.

Ava: We decided to close up shop and play hooky.

Nikolas: I can leave if it’d be easier for you.

Ava: Oh, Nikolas. What about us has ever been easy, huh?


Trina: I’ll be right back.

Ava: Okay.

Trina: You owe me one.

Spencer: Hello to you, too.

Trina: I could have blown your spot, told your dad all about how you were in town for weeks before you decided to show your face.

Spencer: But you didn’t, and I’m grateful. Do I need to say thank you again?

Trina: Nah, especially now that I know how you’ll make it up to me.


Phyllis: Nina! Oh! What are you — we weren’t expecting to see you so soon.

Nina: It’s so nice to see you. What, did you think I could stay away? I wanted to be here for you and Lenny.

Phyllis: You’ve already done so much as it is. And your family needs you in Port Charles.

Nina: Phyllis, you’re my family, too.

Phyllis: [ Laughing ] Oh.

Nina: Hey, there he is!

Lenny: You and I have a lot to say to each other.


Alexis: So the governor signed off?

Shawn: According to the powers of his office, my sentence was commuted and the appropriate paperwork was recorded and finalized.

Sam: And that’s it? No jail time?

Shawn: I’m out, time served, with no parole conditions. As for Judge Carson, the governor has urged her to resign from the bench or risk consequences from the judicial review board.

Alexis: So, what about the other defendants that were treated unfairly?

Shawn: Those sentences are being reviewed, with the governor putting pressure on the board to expedite the process.

Alexis: That’s it. It’s over.

Jordan: We’re gonna make plans with Molly and TJ to tell the other defendants tonight.

Alexis: They did right by us.

Shawn: Yeah, they sure did.

Alexis: I’m happy for you.

Sam: I’m really happy for you, too. Kind of jealous of the whole no-parole thing, though, but I’m — I am really happy.

Alexis: So what’s next? You got your whole life ahead of you.

Shawn: Uh, I’ve got time to think about that.

Alexis: Yeah, you do.

Shawn: But for now, my focus will be to make sure whoever shot Hayden be brought to justice.


Trina: Ava and your father are completely miserable.

Spencer: And?

Trina: And there’s really only one solution. We need to “Parent Trap” them.

Spencer: You have a twin?

Trina: What? No. We need to convince this couple on the brink of divorce that they belong together.

Spencer: Okay, but what if they don’t? I mean, someone hates them so much that Ava is terrified for her daughter’s safety.

Trina: Which is why Ava shouldn’t give in to him. Nikolas and Ava are stronger together.

Spencer: I don’t know. The incidents have stopped since they broke up. Tells me this creep is willing to leave Ava alone now.

Trina: No, that’s cool. We’ll just give in to a terrorist.

Spencer: Can I be completely honest?

Trina: I don’t know. Can you?

Spencer: Even if I agreed with you on the terrorist thing, I was never really a fan of your boss to begin with, so…

Trina: Whatever. I’ll do it myself.


Britt: I’ve been meaning to seek you out.

Austin: I’m flattered.

Britt: As I’m sure you’ve heard, things are in flux around here.

Austin: Right, the chief of staff thing.

Britt: Yes. And to retain my position, I’m going to need as many allies as possible.

Austin: Yeah, I understand.

Britt: And since I am the one who hired you, I would appreciate your support.

Austin: I’m sure you would. What do I get in exchange?

Britt: Other than the fact I’m the reason you have a job?

Austin: Right, other than that, correct.

Britt: Advocate for me to Dr. Quartermaine, and I’ll sign off on whatever you need.

Austin: Whatever I need.

Britt: Mm-hmm.

Austin: Whatever I need.

Britt: Whatever.

Austin: Okay, done.

Britt: Good.

Austin: Great.

Britt: Thank you.

Austin: You’re welcome.


Monica: Well, hi.

Jason: Hey. I hope you don’t mind I stopped by.

Monica: No. I mean, I’m always happy to see you. And I have a feeling that you are here to give me an update.

Jason: Yes. Uh, I had Spinelli do a deep dive on Austin. Seems legit. Son of Jimmy Lee Holt and Charity Gatlin. No felonies. I mean, he is who he says he is.

Monica: Well, thank you and Spinelli for looking into it.

Jason: Mm-hmm. Uh, did you need anything else?

Monica: You can read me very well. Actually… I’d like to talk to you about your engagement.


Valentin: Anna, there were plenty of people at General Hospital that day that wanted Peter brought to justice.

Anna: Yeah. Whoever was on that roof with him, you know, Peter knew that a clean getaway was impossible, because this person was a witness.

Valentin: A witness. You think Peter took him out?

Anna: No. There’s no one else reported missing. No. The only reason that that person didn’t come forward is because… they had something to do with Peter’s disappearance.

Valentin: So you’re saying Peter didn’t leave the hospital because he was incapable of doing so.


Lenny: Is it okay if Nina and I have a minute alone?

Nina: I would love that. It’s been a while since we’ve been able to catch up. Come on, you want to — yeah. Over here? Okay. Thank you.

Lenny: I just want to make something clear. I am incredibly grateful for your connections. The fact that I’m getting this surgery tomorrow so close to home… [ Chuckles ] That’s all because of you.

Nina: Well, thank you, Lenny, but it’s really all because of my late ex-husband. You know, he was very close to Dr. Hartman. Dr. Hartman was very happy to do it, as was I. Lenny, you’ve always been so kind to me. And Phyllis, you know how I feel about her.

Lenny: I do, which is why I need to level with you.

Nina: Okay.

Lenny: I’m going into this with a lot of reservations.

Nina: Yeah, Mike told me that you had some hesitation about the cost.

Lenny: [ Sighs ] It’s not about the money, Nina. It never was.


Shawn: Someone tried to kill Hayden. They’re still out there, thinking they got away with it. Well, maybe it’s connected to her subsequent disappearance, maybe not. But I owe it to her, and myself, to uncover the truth.

Alexis: Of course you do. And you should.

Jordan: Okay. I hate to ruin the celebration, but we’re due at the new facility.

Alexis: Wow. I get an escort from the commissioner. I’m honored.

Sam: Do you — just —

Jordan: Of course.

Sam: I love you.

Alexis: I love you. [ Chuckles ]

Sam: Me and the girls are gonna come up and visit as often as we can, okay?

Alexis: Okay. You go live your life and all that goes with it.

Shawn: You, too, Alexis.

Alexis: And you do what you have to do to nail that son of a bitch.

Shawn: On it.


Waiter: With compliments from the beautiful blond in the last lounge chair.

Waitress: Compliments from a certain gentleman.

Ava: Oh, thank you. How nice. Uh, which gentleman is that?

Waitress: Right over there. Enjoy.


Valentin: You think maybe the man on the roof with Peter that day incapacitated him or worse?

Anna: Yes.

Valentin: And he’s been covering his tracks ever since.

Anna: Yeah. But like you said, you know, there’s no shortage of people at the hospital who want Peter gone, dead, um, so it could be any number of men that night.

Valentin: Yeah, yeah, it could be. But I think it’s obvious you’ve zeroed in on one. And that’s probably why you’re here, because you want me to talk you out of it.  But I can’t do that. I think you and I both know there was a man at the hospital that day with every reason in the world to hurt Peter.

Anna: Don’t say it.

Valentin: Finn.


Terry: I am sorry. Me losing my cool about Peter probably isn’t helping either one of you.

Finn: No, no, we — we appreciate it, Terry. We do.

Terry: I can still count on your support in my bid for chief of staff?

Finn: You don’t even have to ask.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Terry: I have to see about a patient. See you later.

Finn: Yeah. See you.

Elizabeth: See you later.

Finn: What?

Elizabeth: I have an idea.

Finn: Yeah?

Elizabeth: See, isn’t this nice — going for a walk, getting a little fresh air, soaking up the sun, little vitamin D?

Finn: Have a private conversation?

Elizabeth: Exactly. We need to figure this out. We can’t leave Peter’s body in the lab forever, nor can we risk moving him while the cameras are running.

Finn: So we are effectively trapped, like we’ve been for weeks.

Elizabeth: Maybe not. If Terry becomes chief of staff, she can make the security cameras go dark again.

Finn: You really want to involve Terry in this?

Elizabeth: We’ve been friends since we were little. If I asked her to do it, she would. We wouldn’t even have to tell her about Peter.

Finn: No.

Elizabeth: No? That’s it, just no?

Finn: Pretty much.

Elizabeth: I feel like we’re tripping over each other here.

Finn: I know.

Elizabeth: The last thing I want is for you to turn yourself in to protect me.

Finn: And the last thing I want is for them to find Peter’s body and your DNA to be on it. I’d rather take the fall alone than implicate you in any way. The best thing for everyone is if this body’s never found.

Elizabeth: Which — and you’re not gonna like it — brings us back to Jason.


Monica: Well, first of all, I want you to know that I’m not trying to stop you. I learned a long time ago that I cannot control your life. Actually, I just wanted to — to let you know what’s in my heart and… why it hurts every time I think about what Carly did to your brother.

Jason: Okay.

Monica: Now, I know A.J. was a very troubled and very flawed man, but there was a time when I — when I really had hope, Jason. In spite of all the bad decisions he had made, I thought maybe this one time, he can turn his life around. He can — he can be better. He can do better. But Carly made sure that that never happened.

Jason: [ Sighs ]

Monica: Because Carly always used A.J. as a stepping stone to you. So that destroyed whatever was left with A.J. And, good heavens, I know this was a long time ago. Michael was just an infant. And Carly has grown up and lived her life. I’m just trying to tell you… just how hard it’s been for me.

Jason: I respect you. You know that.

Monica: Yes, I know that.

Jason: And obviously, you get to feel how you want to feel. But the truth is… I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Carly.


Ava: This is so nice. I should go thank him.

Trina: No, no, Ava, wait. Wait, wait — Ava. Wait.

Ava: Hi.

Austin: Hi.

Ava: Thank you so much. I-I’d like to return the favor, so, um, next round’s on me, huh?

Austin: Uh, sure. I’m not really entire–

Nikolas: I appreciate the gesture of good will. Does this mean you’re open to talking?

Ava: Huh?

Nikolas: The drink you bought me.

Ava: Uh, I didn’t buy you a drink. But he bought me a drink.

Austin: Oh, I didn’t. I didn’t buy anyone a drink. Not that I wouldn’t. I’m not cheap.

Spencer: Uh, the only one buying any drinks right now is Trina. She’s trying to “Parent Trap” you.


Monica: I know you owe a lot to Carly. Why do you think I’ve cut her so much slack all these years? And you love each other completely. So I’m — I’m not judging you.

Jason: I know. Looking — looking back at that time that you’re talking about… you know, everything around Michael’s birth, just all the lies, nobody wanting to give an inch… we were all wrong. How A.J. treated Carly, how we treated A.J. I can see how A.J. wasn’t all that bad.

Monica: You can?

Jason: Yeah. I mean, he was just trying to get access to his kid, and it was — that was his right. But not in the way he went about it. But I get it. And I have no excuse for my actions.

Monica: But Carly does?

Jason: Carly lied because A.J. said he was gonna take the baby as soon as it was born. And when Carly gets threatened, she — she comes out swinging. And that hasn’t changed. But what has changed is that she’s learned to — to love people, to trust people. You know, and now she understands that there are some things worth fighting for, and there are some things that aren’t worth fighting for. But we know exactly what we’re doing by getting married, okay? I just, I-I understand — I really do understand why this is hard for you, but I’m — I’m just asking you, can — can you accept it?

Monica: I just want you to be happy. So one more thing.

Jason: Yeah. Okay.

Monica: [ Chuckles ] This was your choice, wasn’t it? It wasn’t some maneuvering of — of Carly’s? It was your decision, right?

Yes. Yes, Carly and I made this decision together. It’s what we both want.

Monica: Okay. Then I am happy for you. Oh, but just to let you know, it is never gonna be easy for me to be in the same room with Carly. But, in all fairness, I think it works both ways.

Jason: Well, I appreciate you making the effort for Carly. Because I-I know you always make it for me.

Monica: I love you.  See, that’s the one thing — no, Michael makes it two — that Carly and I have in common.

Jason: I love you, too.


Lenny: Mike told you what I told him. And yeah, the bills from all this are on my mind. But the truth is, as soon as the doctor saw that spot, there was another reason I fought against you paying for everything. Because you weren’t just offering money to Phyllis. You were offering her hope. The — the growth they found that they want to biopsy and explore… [ Chuckles ] …It’s on my pancreas. Everyone knows that’s often a death sentence.

Nina: Lenny, often isn’t always.

Lenny: True. But if this surgery confirms what Dr. Kishore saw, the numbers aren’t in my favor. Money and pride, I can get over that. What I’ll never get over is… someone giving my wife hope when there isn’t any.


Britt: Dr. Randolph.

Terry: Dr. Westbourne.

Britt: Chief Westbourne, for now, at least.

Terry: Speaking of, I can’t help but notice that you’ve been having lots of talks with Dr. Gatlin-Holt and Dr. Navarro.

Britt: You’re collecting your people. So am I. You know, Terry, I don’t like this competition much, either. So give it to me straight. What do I need to do to get you to drop out of the race?

Terry: Excuse me?

Britt: Well, I know you’re only digging your heels in ’cause you’re team Elizabeth. So, what can I do? Give her a raise? Add more funding to your department? What?

Terry: And this is the exact reason why I want to be chief of staff. I’m just as qualified a physician, yet I don’t double-deal or get into bed with scum like Cyrus Renault.  I just want what’s best for the hospital.

Britt: So do I.

Terry: [ Scoffs ]

Monica: Hello. Is everything okay here?

Terry: Perfect.

Britt: Just peachy.

Monica: Good, good, because I would like to see both of you in my office, please.


Anna: I went to see Finn today at the hospital just to — just to update him.

Valentin: And?

Anna: Oh, it was there. It was all there — in his body language, the way he spoke. And, uh… then it just made sense suddenly, the description — male, tall, light suit, dark hair to the collar. It was Finn.


Elizabeth: Looping Jason in could be the solution to all of our problems.

Finn: No, thanks.

Elizabeth: Finn.

Finn: Look, if we get caught, any good will we might have with the cops goes right out the window when they know you collaborated with a hit man.

Elizabeth: That’s the point. Jason doesn’t get caught. This is literally his profession. He’s been a suspect in multiple murders and disappearances of really bad people, by the way, people roughly on par with Peter. But Jason has never been convicted in any investigation. Why? Because there’s never any evidence. If anyone could get rid of this problem, it’s Jason.

Finn: Elizabeth, I don’t think we can risk involving him or anyone else. Peter was a threat. Now he’s not. Whatever mess that created… we clean it up ourselves.


Nina: Hope is a very powerful thing. I believe in that. And, Lenny… you’re very strong. I believe in you.

Lenny: And I appreciate all the good energy. But I need to ask something of you. And I know that’s a lot on top of everything else you’ve done.

Nina: You can ask me anything.

Lenny: Make me a promise?

Nina: Name it.

Lenny: When it becomes clear… that there’s no more battle to fight… you won’t let Phyllis hold on. It’ll just make it that much harder for her when the worst happens.

Nina: If the worst happens.

Lenny: Please. Can you do that for me?

Phyllis: You two finished yacking it up?

Lenny: Yeah. [ Chuckles ] I just needed to say a proper thank-you. I’m so grateful, Nina. For everything.

Nina: [ Sighs ]

Sonny: You okay?

Nina: It’s just really em-emotional. I just — I feel really bad that they’re going through this. One thing I’m happy about is I am happy that I’m here. I’m happy that I’m —

Sonny: You’re home.


Jordan: So, someone will take you to your housing soon. That, the cafeteria, and most other sections are segregated by gender, well, except this communal recreation area. Visitations also happen here.

Alexis: I got to tell you, this isn’t much worse than my freshman common room.

Jordan: [ Chuckles ] This facility has infinitely more privileges than Pentonville, but it’s still a prison, so you need to be on guard.

Alexis: So the rules that my, uh, consultant gave me still apply.

Jordan: Well, don’t let these cushy accommodations make you forget your place. If the warden senses that this is about anything other than restitution and rehabilitation, she will make your stay here difficult at best.

Alexis: And at worst?

Jordan: She’ll make it all go away and send you back to Pentonville.


Sam: So, I got your voicemail last night, asking if I was still in the P.I. game?

Shawn: I have a job for you.

Sam: Let me guess — it is to find the person who committed the crime that you went to prison for.

Shawn: And get them off the streets before they hurt someone else.


Austin: “Parent Trap.” Are you a twin?

Trina: Oh, my god.

Spencer: She’s trying to convince you that you’re still in love with each other.

Nikolas: Well, she wouldn’t be wrong.

Ava: Trina, do you have anything to say?

Trina: I’m sorry. I know it seems kind of juvenile.

Spencer: Kind of?

Trina: But I hate what this is doing to you. I just want you to be happy.

Spencer: Look, this isn’t easy for either of you, obviously. But you cannot play games with people’s hearts like that.

Trina: You mean like you are?


Valentin: Anna, this is going to be difficult for you… if you have to prove that a man you love killed Peter.

Anna: We don’t know that. We don’t know that Finn killed Peter.

Valentin: Okay. Okay, but if we assume that Finn was on the roof with Peter that day, then he would obviously know how and if Peter left the hospital. I mean, it’s n– it’s not impossible that maybe he extorted Finn, forced him to help him escape in exchange for one final dose of the antidote.

Anna: No. I mean, yes, yes, that is a possibility, but… once Finn had developed the antidote, then he would have come clean to me about that.

Valentin: So it’s possible that Finn did something to Peter.

Anna: There’s only one way to find out.


Elizabeth: I hear you, I understand what you’re saying, but we are not equipped to handle this on our own. We have no plan.

Finn: I’ll think of one. I just need some more time. Hey. Everything’s gonna be okay. I have to get back to the hospital.

Jason: Elizabeth. We need to talk.


Phyllis: Uh, drinking the night before surgery?

Lenny: The fast doesn’t start until dark.

[ Laughter ]

Lenny:  Oh, come on. Don’t deny me this. How long before my next one?

Sonny: To Lenny.

Nina: Mm.

Lenny:  Oh, to hell with that.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]

Lenny:  To family.

Phyllis: Ah.

Lenny:  The chosen kind.

Phyllis: Mm.

Nina: To family.

Phyllis: To family.

Nina: Mmm. Mmm.

Sonny: Mmm.

Nina: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: Time to open up. Lenny, why don’t you give me a hand?

Lenny: I thought you told me to take it easy.

[ Sonny laughs ]

Sonny: S-subtlety is not one of Phyllis’s strong points.

Nina: Mnh-mnh, god love her.

Sonny: So, uh… we got a lot of catching up to do. How long you staying?

Nina: As long as I’m needed.

Sonny: Could be a long time.

Nina: It could be.


Sam: After what you just did for my mother, there is absolutely no way I could say no to you, so, yes, I will — I will do whatever you need.

Shawn: Yeah?

Sam: Yeah. I’m just gonna have to ask my current parole officer, because I still have like…three months left before I can spend time around another convicted felon.

Shawn: Uh, do you think it’ll be a problem?

Sam: Uh, I don’t — I don’t think so.  Pretty lenient, considering. It’s a long story.

Shawn: So, when can we start?

Sam: How about now?

Shawn: Sooner we get the ball rolling, the sooner we get Hayden’s shooter.


Spencer: Don’t bother, Trina. My father knows all about how I tried pushing him and Britt together.

Trina: Oh. Well, as long as everyone’s being honest with each other. Again, I’m sorry.

Ava: Oh, Trina.

Spencer: I’ll talk to her.

Nikolas: So, where does that leave us?

Ava: It leaves us right where we’ve been, Nikolas. In the midst of a divorce. And for my family’s safety, these six weeks can’t pass quickly enough.  Ah, perfect timing. [ Chuckles ] Let me get you another drink, huh?

Austin: Okay.


Alexis: I’m well aware this is not a vacation. I still have a lot of work to do on myself. A lot.

Jordan: Hey. Good luck, Alexis.

Alexis: Thank you very much. Really.


Monica: I wanted you both to be the first to know that I have made my official recommendation on who should be chief of staff.


[ Knock on door ]

Finn:  Hi. You have an update on Peter’s whereabouts?

Anna: I just might.


Jason: What’s going on?

Elizabeth: I’m fine. Really.

Jason: Uh, if that was true, I would — I would be glad. But here’s what I know. About a week ago, you told me that Peter wasn’t anything that we had to worry about anymore. And you were about to tell me something else, and then Finn walked up, and now you and Finn are in the park in the middle of a workday talking about Peter and a mess that needs to be cleaned up. Look, I understand you’re trying to protect Finn. You don’t have to protect him with me. Okay? If you know what happened to Peter, all you have to do is tell me. I will help you.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Britt: Are you eavesdropping on me?

Shawn (to Sam): There’s our target now.

Alexis: Fancy meeting you here.

Monica: We’ve made our decision.

Nikolas: I could lose my wife.

Anna (to Finn): If I follow Peter’s trail, the police won’t be far behind.

Jason (to Elizabeth): I’m pretty sure you’re in trouble. Let me help you.

Nina (to Sonny): We got a lot of catching up to do.

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

N’neka:: Cheers, Curtis. You couldn’t ask for a better opening night.

Curtis: Right. Yeah. Well, I can think of a few other things.

Portia: Hi.

Curtis: Hi.

Portia: Um, I know you’re busy. This is probably a bad time with your opening night and all.

Curtis: Actually, um, your timing couldn’t have been any better.

Portia: Good, good. Because I was thinking about what you said at the pool earlier… about how you would be here tonight if I —

Curtis: If you were interested. And here you are.

Portia: Yeah.


Jordan: Stella, what were you thinking, telling Portia to back off Curtis?

Stella: I was thinking you and Curtis need more time to work out your differences and remember how much you love each other. I gave you an opportunity to fight for your man. Why didn’t you take it?

Jordan: I don’t owe you an explanation.

Stella: You’re right. You don’t owe me. But you owe it to yourself to be honest. Why are you walking away without a fight?


Sam: Olivia. Hey, hi.

Olivia: You meeting someone, or you flying solo?

Sam: Uh, well, I was supposed to be meeting Spinelli, but he just texted me and said he had to reschedule.

Olivia: Oh. Mamma mia. The things I do for this place. Hey, hey, hey. Ms. Corbin, what can I do for you?

Gladys: [ Chuckles ] We’re practically family. Call me Gladys.

Olivia: Ah, Gladys. What’s your pleasure?

Gladys: Oh, another mai tai. [ Chuckles ] Plus the inside scoop on what your partner Carly is willing to do for my son.


Brando: Sasha?

Sasha: Brando. What’s wrong?

Brando: Nothing’s wrong. No, for the first time, I’m sure everything’s gonna be alright.


Anna: Dante, hi.

Dante: Anna.

Anna: So, you know that I’ve been working on behalf of the WSB and, uh, trying to find Peter and Maxie’s baby. Yeah?

Dante: Yeah, we got the memo.

Anna: Great. So, uh, Valentin and I, we just got back from New York, where we — we found the helicopter pilot. And we questioned him, and he admitted to being involved in Peter’s plan to take Maxie and the baby. And then when that fell through, he had been ordered to airlift Peter off the roof at G.H.

Dante: This is the one who claimed that he couldn’t make the pickup because he wasn’t allowed to land?

Anna: Yeah, yeah. He was denied clearance.

Dante: Mm.

Anna: But there’s an added factor.

Dante: Okay.

Anna: He told us that there’s another person on the roof with Peter.

Dante: Mm. Someone we know?

Anna: Man. Vague description — uh, tall, dark hair, street clothes. Yeah.

Dante: Okay. Something to go on.

Anna: Yeah, actually, we need to keep that information confidential.

Dante: Why? And why are you working so closely with Valentin Cassadine when it feels like you — you barely trust me?


Valentin: [ Whispers ] Hey! How’s my angel?

Brook Lynn: She’s fast asleep.

Valentin: [ Sighs ]

Brook Lynn: Did you just get back?

Valentin: I did. I just came right from the airport. I had to see Bailey. It was just a short trip, but I can’t tell you how much I missed her.


Elizabeth: According to Cameron, Violet wolfed down three slices of pizza and couldn’t stop talking about how her dad showed her how to get a hit. Well done, coach.

Finn: I refuse to take any credit for Violet’s T-ball triumph.

Elizabeth: Well, I’d like to think the cupcakes had something to do with it, but, you know, you were the main source of inspiration.

Finn: You know, my time with Violet is the only thing that helps me forget what I have hanging over me.

Elizabeth: You mean Peter August? May I remind you, he poisoned Chase and destroyed the antidote right in front of your face. You rid this town of a monster.

Finn: Yeah, see, that’s the thing. You see enough horror movies, and you realize monsters never really die. They haunt you forever.


Elizabeth: Peter’s already taken enough from you. Don’t let him rob you of your joy in Violet.

Finn: Violet is my joy. She’s my reason for living, which just makes me realize how painful it would be to be without her.

Elizabeth: That’s not gonna happen.

Finn: Nobody gets away with murder.

Elizabeth: Don’t…call it murder. Peter got what he deserved.

Finn: Doesn’t justify throwing a man face-first down a flight of stairs. You know, if they were to give me a polygraph, if they were to put me on the stand, I’d have to admit I wanted Peter dead.

Elizabeth: Yeah, so did a lot of other people.

Finn: They weren’t up on that roof, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: You pushed him in the heat of very justifiable anger. I’m sure if a jury understood the circumstances, they’d acquit you. Not that we’re gonna find out. We’re gonna find a way out of this.

Finn: [ Sighs ]

Elizabeth: We are.


Anna: If I didn’t trust you, I wouldn’t be giving you that information. And Valentin has a vested interest in finding out what happened to Peter. Right?

Dante: Okay. So, is the idea that this guy on the roof was an accomplice of Peter’s, there to help him find a way out when the helicopter couldn’t pick him up?

Anna: Yeah, maybe. Entirely possible, though. And it could be someone that was working at the hospital, so you can see the need for secrecy. Probably someone affiliated with Cyrus. They maybe knew that some of the security cameras were disabled.

Dante: Maybe even someone on staff, someone who was handpicked by Cyrus.

Anna: So, I’m gonna head to the hospital and have a discreet conversation with Monica Quartermaine and ask some questions.

Dante: Okay. I’ll have, uh, our people go over the video footage from whatever cameras were working that night and see if we can find someone who matches that description.

Anna: Thank you. It’s good to be working with you again, Detective Falconeri.

Dante: Yeah, same. Hey, um… I’m sorry if I got on you there. We both know it wasn’t too long ago that, um, you didn’t know if I was a — a friend or an enemy.


Gladys: After all my son and I did for that family, I shouldn’t even have to ask. You know, on rainy days, I still ache from the bullet I took to help bring down Cyrus. I hope Carly and Jason don’t forget that.

Sam: How can we forget when you keep reminding everyone?

Gladys: Your only connection to that family is through your ex.

Sam: Ooh.

Gladys: Mine are blood ties, and so are Brando’s.

Sam: Ouch. So, I guess, uh, Jason and Sonny proves that sometimes water is thicker than blood.

Gladys: Put my drinks on Carly’s tab.

Olivia: Thank you for that assist. And I will repay that favor, and I — and I do use that term loosely — to fill you in on the latest Quartermaine drama. Tell you what, watching those people close ranks against an outsider, that is something to behold.

Sam: Wait a minute. Close ranks? Against Valentin?

Olivia: Ah, different outsider.


Brook Lynn: Can’t believe how quickly Bailey went down tonight. She has been so fussy the last few days.

Valentin: She must feel more comfortable with both her parents under the same roof.

Brook Lynn: So, um, tell me about your adventure with Anna.

Valentin: It was interesting. At least the investigation is on the right track.

Brook Lynn: In other words, it’s none of my business?

Valentin: Not really. It’s nothing personal. Anna and I are —

Brook Lynn: I know, I know, you’re a team.

Valentin: Yeah. We’re a damn good team, if I have to say so myself.

Brook Lynn: And what does Anna say?


Jordan: Portia and I have become friends, and I have no intention of telling her how to feel or asking her to back away from something or someone that she really cares about. Same goes for Curtis. Stella, our divorce is sad, and it’s painful, but I just want what’s best for him.

Stella: [ Sighs ] Me? I guess I’m just old-school. When you took the vow until death do you part, I believe in those words. You don’t simply quit when the going gets tough.

Jordan: Marriage is a two-way street. I can’t fight for something all by myself. Like our vows said, it takes two, and Curtis is done with this marriage.

Stella: You never gave him a chance to fight alongside you. You always kept Curtis on the outside looking in.

Jordan: Yeah, okay, you’re right. I hurt him. And do you want me to do it again by fighting him on a divorce that was his idea, that he clearly wants?

Stella: I want you to be honest with yourself, Jordan. Do you want this marriage to be over? Or are you throwing in the towel because you feel guilty?


N’neka:: You look great. I love what you’re wearing.

Terry: Thank you. I thought it felt right for a grand opening.

N’neka:: Are you meeting someone?

Terry: You never know. [ Chuckles ] The night is so young, after all.


Portia: You know, uh, maybe this was a bad idea, coming here tonight. See, the thing is, is I like Jordan.

Curtis: I like Jordan, too.

Portia: And I like you.

Curtis: Okay, well, in my book, that’s a — that’s a good thing, right?

Portia: I mean, y-yes and no.

Curtis: So, you don’t like me?

Portia: I’m usually not at a loss for words, but all of a sudden, I’m just all… tongue-tied right now. [ Chuckles nervously ] Everything I’m saying is even sounding more confusing. Yes, Curtis, I like you. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t like you.

Curtis: Nothing confusing about that. Because I made it abundantly clear that I like you. So now that that’s been established, is there something else you’re trying to tell me?


Portia: Look. [ Chuckles ] You were honest with me at the pool today, and — and I heard you. And I want to be just as honest with you.

Curtis: I would really appreciate that. Honesty is the best policy, so they say. Where’s my manners? You came to the opening of my club, and I haven’t even offered you a drink. What can I get you? It’s on the house.

Portia: No, no, no, no, no, no, it’s okay. I-I-I actually would like a clear head, because I want to get this right.

Curtis: “This”? Damn, is it that serious?

Portia: I mean, what can I say? [ Scoffs ] I was telling Terry earlier that… I haven’t dated really seriously since Marcus and I divorced.

Curtis: Mm. Well, I’m not gonna trot out the “it’s like riding a bike” metaphor. I’m pretty sure it’ll come back to you naturally.

Portia: Right. I mean, I don’t want you to think that I’m a prude or super old-fashioned or anything like that. I-I mean, I am a doctor. I’ve seen everything. But… I’ve had two pretty epic back-to-back failures with Marcus and then with you. So it’s easy for me to be a little gun-shy or oversimplify and — and assume that things are gonna be easy and uncomplicated just because we knew each other from back in the day. I mean, how much of that is nostalgia? H-h-how much of that is actually real? And I’m saying this all wrong, aren’t I?

Curtis: No, no, I-I wouldn’t say you’re saying it wrong. Perhaps you’re talking in circles, because it seems like you’re saying everything except for what you came here to say.

Portia: You’re right. I had this all down perfect in my head on the way over here. But I’m sitting with you face-to-face, and… I can’t get a coherent word out. [ Chuckles ] I think that’s my cue to leave, so…

Curtis: Wait, wait, wait, wait, Portia. Don’t go.


Stella: I know my stubborn opposition to the two of you as a couple made things even harder. I still carry that guilt, and every Sunday, I pray for forgiveness.

Jordan: I forgave you a long time ago.

Stella: That’s very kind, but I wasn’t praying to you.

Jordan: [ Scoffs ] My mistake.

Stella: Jordan, the mistake would be for you to let that man, who you obviously still love, walk out of your life without fighting for him. If you feel there is anything left unsaid, you need to go to Curtis and say it.

Jordan: No. It’s too late.

Stella: Oh, please! Have you even signed the divorce papers yet?

Jordan: No.

Stella: Why not?


Brando: When I asked you to meet me here, I had no idea how romantic they make the pool look at night. It’s almost as if I had planned it.

Sasha: Planned what?

Brando: You. Me. The baby. Us. Look, I-I know that you don’t want to raise our baby in a world that’s owned and operated by people like Cyrus Renault.

Sasha: Carly and Jason are in that life. A-and I know it’s complicated ’cause Sonny was your cousin —

Brando: Yes. Yes. I’m sorry to cut you off. They — yes, they will always be my family. But that doesn’t mean that I have to live in their world. I don’t want that for our baby, either.

Sasha: What are you saying?

Brando: I’m saying that… sometimes you have to make choices in life. And I’ve made mine.


Sam: Wait a minute. You’re telling me that Austin, the country doctor who happened to be in the woods to deliver Maxie’s baby, is a long-lost Quartermaine?

Olivia: How random is that? Hmm?

Sam: I don’t — I don’t know. I actually — I don’t think it’s that random at all.

Olivia: What are you talking about?

Sam: Well, Dante and I went to the — the house in the woods where the fake nurse took Maxie. And it turns out that Austin not only owns that property, but he rents it out. I mean, he totally claimed his innocence. And I knew there was something fishy about that guy. So if he was planning on coming out as a Quartermaine, I’m sure he loved that he was getting all this inside information on people from Port Charles.

Olivia: Well, listen, whatever this Austin guy is trying to pull on ELQ, I know that Michael and Ned can right that ship. I-I just hope they do it without too many fireworks. Had enough of those on the fourth, huh?

Dante: If it were me, I would have chosen you.

Sam: Dante told you about that?

Olivia: Told me about what?


Anna: When you first came back to Port Charles, I was really worried that you were still struggling with PTSD.

Dante: I was.

Anna: Yeah.

Dante: So you had every right to feel that way. [ Sighs ] I was doubting myself. You know, when Jordan asked me to come back to work, I said no, ’cause I didn’t know if I was right. I didn’t know if I was still in control of my mind or if Kirk was or… anyway, I’ve been continuing to see Kevin Collins and, uh… just making sure I’m staying on track.

Anna: It takes guts to do that, to admit that you have an issue and just work to overcome it.

Dante: I had some help, too, from… someone other than Kevin.

Sam: Think about everyone who loses if you pull that trigger — your mom, your sisters, your brothers, and your son. Think about Rocco right now. He needs his father. You’re all he has. Hey, come on. It’s okay. It’s okay. I’ve got you.

Dante: Sam, she, uh — she found a way to talk me off that ledge.

Anna: I’m glad.

Dante: Yeah, me, too.

Anna: [ Chuckles ]

Dante: Anyway, I’d like to repay her by tracking down Peter August and bringing him in.

Anna: Alright, I’ll head over to the hospital and, uh, see what I can find out about Peter’s accomplice. If I hit pay dirt, I’ll let you know.

Dante: Thanks.

Anna: Yeah.


Jordan: Stella, I’m in charge of a police department. I have multiple ongoing investigations happening —

Stella: All in need of your attention. I agree. But are you really expecting me to believe that in your very busy work day, you can’t find time to sign a few papers? Or in your heart of hearts, are you hoping if you put it off long enough, Curtis is gonna change his mind, he’s gonna declare that he never stopped loving you, and rip up the divorce papers right in front of you?


Curtis: I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have pressured you.

Portia: You shouldn’t have.

Curtis:  It’s a classic case of me thinking because I want something, that everyone else must want it, too.

Portia: Curtis, I-I —

Curtis: No, I — no, I get it. I get it. We had something once, something in the past. It was bound to end. So we should keep it where it belongs, in the past. That’s what you want, right?

Portia: Well, let me ask you, Curtis. Do you want to leave us in the past?


Brando: You have to remember who I am, Sasha. I’m — I’m a military guy, and I own a garage. So words and — and feelings, those aren’t my strong suit. I-it took you being strong and making a decision about what’s a deal-breaker for you to give me perspective on what it is that I truly want. And that — that isn’t working for Corinthos Coffee and all the rest of the life that comes with it.

Sasha: Are you sure?

Brando: Okay, so maybe I-I don’t have everything figured out just yet, but — but I do know this much. I choose you, Sasha Gilmore. I choose you and our baby, our family. That’s what I want. And I hope you want that, too.

Sasha: [Chuckles ] I think that you don’t give yourself enough credit. Those were some pretty nice words.


Sam: You are talking about the Fourth of July fireworks, of course.

Olivia: What did you think I was talking about? And what’s it got to do with Dante?

Dante: Me? Hey.

Sam: Oh.

Dante: Hmm. You, um — you, um, told my mother?

Olivia: Could someone please explain to me what we’re talking about here?

Dante: Oh — yeah. Yes, yes. Of course. Um, myself and Sam and I and, um…

Sam: Finn.

Dante: …Finn and Elizabeth, uh, were on the pier waiting for the fireworks to start, uh, on July the 4th and, uh —

Sam: Some fireworks, huh?

Dante: Yeah. I was giving someone a, uh, lecture on what a public disturbance was.

Sam: He was.

Olivia: Really? Really?

Dante: Yeah.

Sam: Yeah.

Dante: So, uh, it kind of led to, uh, I guess you could say, a bit of a fiery exchange… I — …where Sam almost fell into the water and —

Sam: I did, actually.

Dante: You did. And I tried to stop her…

Sam: So I pulled him in after me.

Dante: …From falling, and she pulled me in, so we both ended up —

Olivia: Both of you?

Dante: Yeah.

Sam: Yeah.

Dante: [ Clears throat ] It was funny.

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Olivia: Well, you know what? I don’t know what to make of this whole story. But I got a restaurant to run.

Sam: Hmm.

Dante: Oh, man.

Sam: [ Sighs ] Thank you for the save.

Dante: Oh. Don’t worry about it. The last thing I want is my mother to know anything about my private life.

Sam: Wait, what — what’s that supposed to mean? What, are you saying you’re embarrassed that you kissed me?


Valentin: Anna and I have a long, strange, complicated history. We trained together as spies at the WSB years and years ago, and through a series of unfortunate misunderstandings, we wound up on opposing sides.

Brook Lynn: Sounds painful.

Valentin: It was. But we found our way back to each other and we trust each other — not completely by any stretch of the imagination, but we do work well together.

Brook Lynn: So, what changed?

Valentin: Peter. Peter changed things. For our own individual reasons, we gave him the benefit of the doubt. We protected him. We shielded him when we shouldn’t have. Now we are working together to stop him and mitigate the damage. We work well together as a team.

Brook Lynn: And you’re sure that’s all you are? A team?

Valentin: My personal feelings for Anna aside, what’s important is that we find Peter and hopefully Maxie’s baby.


Anna: Elizabeth? Hi.

Elizabeth: Hi.

Anna: Um, how are you? Is Dr. Quartermaine still here?

Elizabeth: Monica? No, she’s gone for the day. Can I help you with something?

Anna: Um, well, actually, yes, maybe. You have access to all the hospital records, don’t you, on your computer?

Elizabeth: Well, it depends.

Anna: Oh, um, no. I-I don’t want any private medical records or anything. I-I’m just looking for a list of everyone, all the staff members who were on duty the night Peter disappeared.


Curtis: I think the reason that we’re stumbling over ourselves and making this harder than it needs to be is because we’re trying to figure out what the other person wants, when we should just speak for ourselves.

Portia: That’s what I’ve been trying to do, but it just keeps coming out wrong.

Curtis: How could it be wrong when we’re being honest with each other?

Portia: Okay. Okay. Okay, here it goes.

Curtis: Alright.

Portia: Now, I-I told you… that I’m afraid that you’re still on the rebound.

Curtis: Portia, you’re not —

Portia: No, no, no, please. Just let me finish.

Curtis: Okay.

Portia: And even if you’re not and you’re ready like you say you are, what if we’re just trying to rewrite history here, you know? Make up for mistakes of the past? It’s been almost 20 years since we met. I need to know that we’re not just, you know, picking up where we left off.

Curtis: Is that how you feel? Because… I sure don’t.

Portia: I’ve been thinking myself in circles ever since that kiss. And the only thing that I know for sure is that I could never forgive myself if I didn’t at least try.


Jordan: Stella, Curtis was the one who asked for the divorce. I agreed because I didn’t think it was fair that he get stuck in a marriage that he didn’t think was working.

Stella: I know you agreed to the divorce for his sake, but does Curtis know that you wanted to stay and fight?

Jordan: I tried. But at that point, we were both too hurt to talk it out anymore.

Stella: [ Sighs ] Baby, don’t you owe it to Curtis, owe it to yourself, to at least start the discussion and see where it goes? Do it now. Tonight.


Dante: I don’t regret that kiss. You, on the other hand, you ran away from me when we were standing outside of Charlie’s, and you’ve been kind of avoiding me ever since.

Sam: [ Scoffs ]

Dante: So if anyone were to be embarrassed, I would have assumed it was you.

Sam: No, no, hold on. First of all, I did not run away from you.

Dante: Yeah, you did.

Sam: I’m not 5 years old. And secondly, I’m — I wasn’t — I’m not embarrassed. If I was so embarrassed, why didn’t I keep it to myself?

Dante: Wait, uh, you did keep — you didn’t keep it to yourself, or you did keep it to yourself? You told somebody?

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Dante: Well, who did you tell?

Sam: Maxie.

Dante: Whoa, man. You told — you told Maxie that we kissed?

Sam: Well, I didn’t give a name. I just s– I just said “some guy.”

Dante: Oh, right. So now I’m just some guy.

Sam: Whoa, wait a minute! You can’t have it both ways. Wait. I mean, did you tell anyone that… we…kissed?

Dante: Uh, you know, I might have mentioned it to someone in passing, but…

Sam: Oh, in passing. Mm-hmm. Oh, I see. So, what am I, just an afterthought?


Brando: Is that a yes?

Sasha: Yes.

Gladys: Well, what a nice surprise. [ Chuckles ] I came down for some night air, and, lucky me, I found you.

Brando: Yes, the very definition of lucky.

Gladys: [ Chuckles ]

Sasha: Hi, Gladys. It’s a beautiful night, isn’t it?

Gladys: Mm. Yeah, it’d be even nicer if the lady who owns this place would be a little more generous with her family.

Brando: Mm. What’s Carly done now?

Gladys: Nothing. And that is my point. I was just telling Olivia Carly should be down on her knees begging you to take the top spot in the family business.

Brando: Let me be perfectly clear. If Carly or Jason offer me a job, I’m turning it down.


Elizabeth: Sure, I can help you with that.

Anna: Okay.

Elizabeth: Can you remind me again of the date Peter disappeared?

Anna: Oh, um, yeah. I-I’ll text you that, the date, and then the approximate time that he dropped out of sight.

Elizabeth: Okay. I’ll, um, get on it and get you that list.

Anna: Thanks. Hey. Hi, Chase. Finn.

Chase: Hey.

Anna: You’re still in the chair. When are you gonna get back on the job? Or are you gonna let everyone else pick up the slack?

Chase: [ Chuckles ] Thank you, Anna.

Anna: For what?

Chase: Being one of the few people who isn’t treating me with kid gloves.

Anna: Oh.

Chase: I may be in this chair now, but I’m still a cop.

Anna: Yes, you are.
[ Elevator bell dings ]

Chase: Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna — I’m gonna head home.

Anna: Ah, as a happily married man.

Chase: [ Chuckles ] And damn proud of it. Thank you.

Elizabeth: Mm-hmm.

Chase: We’re good, right?

Finn: We’re good.

Anna: How’s he doing, really?

Finn: Making progress.

Anna: Oh, good.

Finn: Not as fast as he’d like, but progress nonetheless.

Anna: Awesome.

Elizabeth: Anna is also making progress.

Finn: Mm?

Elizabeth: I’ll get you that list.

Anna: Thank you.

Finn: What’s that all about?

Anna: Um… so, my search for Peter has brought me right back here to G.H.


N’neka:: Sure you don’t want another drink?

Terry: No. I think my work here is done.

Curtis: There are no guarantees, you know.

Portia: Taking this risk, it does terrify me. But what’s the alternative, right?

Curtis: Playing it safe.

Portia: Well, that’s not you.

Curtis: It’s not you, either, or else… you wouldn’t have come here tonight.

Portia: So, when do we take this leap of faith?

Curtis: There’s no time like the present.


Dante: You are not an afterthought, Sam.

Sam: Okay, then what am I?

Dante: Uh, y-you’re — you’re you. You’re — you’re Sam.

Sam: [ Laughs ] Oh, my god. Wow.

Dante: What?

Sam: That’s so kind of you. “Sam, which rhymes with spam,” which is so flattering.

Dante: Listen, that’s not what I meant, and you know that, right?

Sam: Then what is it that you meant? What?

Dante: I meant — I mean I — I do not, um… think of you that way.

Sam: Oh.

Dante: Mm-hmm.

Sam: Okay, I see.

Dante: W-why? What — what are you — what are you saying? Y-you think of me — oh, god.

Sam: No. I mean, you’re —

Dante: Oh, wow, okay.

Sam: You’re just, um — what? You’re — you…

Dante: Yeah?

Sam: …Are Dante.

Dante: Oh.

Sam: Uh-huh.

Dante: Great. That sounds good. Um… it’s funny, though, you know? When I said it, it wasn’t cool, but when you say it, it’s totally fine.

Sam: It’s just because —

Dante: It’s a bit of a double standard, I guess.

Sam: You — you know what? I don’t owe you an explanation, so…

Dante: No, you know what? You don’t owe me an explanation, and I don’t owe you one, either, so then we’re even.

Olivia: Hey. Hey, you two.

Sam: Good. Fine.

Olivia: I don’t know what’s going on between the two of you.

Dante: Nothing.

Olivia: But it doesn’t look good to have a couple arguing at the bar. It makes people uncomfortable. So whatever you’ve got to say to each other, say it in private.


Gladys: [ Sighs ] I’m all for playing hard to get. I think it’s a good negotiating strategy.

Brando: Mom, listen to me. This isn’t a negotiating strategy. I’m — I’m not holding out for more money or a better job. This — I’m just not interested in working for the Corinthos organization.

Gladys: Why not?

Brando: I got a better offer.

Gladys: I see. [ Scoffs ] I mean, it’s not as if I care for myself. But as a mother, I want what’s best for my son, and you deserve more, Brando. You’ve earned it.

Brando: Well, thank you, Mom, but maybe you can look at it from my point of view and realize that the life that you’re proposing isn’t the life that I want. Everything… that I want is right here.


Valentin: If Peter has the baby, we can return her to Maxie or at least narrow down the search.

Brook Lynn: Maxie will get her baby back. I can promise you that.

Valentin: Okay, why so intense? What did I just say?

Brook Lynn: [ Sighing ] Sorry. Just thinking. Look, um, Valentin, you’ve been so great. Been an unbelievable, conscientious baby daddy. But, um, right now, I could really just use a friend.

Chase: The lady ordered a friend. Would you like a side of fries with that?

Brook Lynn: Side of fries, always. [ Chuckles ]

Valentin: I’ll leave you two alone.

Brook Lynn: Hi.

Chase: Hey.

Brook Lynn: Oh.

Chase: What did Valentin say to upset you?

Brook Lynn: Oh, nothing. We actually just had a nice moment.

Chase: Then what is it?

Brook Lynn: [ Sighs ] Did you ever go into something with the best of intentions and then later discover that it was just way too hard to follow through with?

Chase: Uh, hello? My fake affair with Sasha?

Brook Lynn: Right. Of course you understand.

Chase: Come on, Brook Lynn, I can tell you’re upset. And I’m not going anywhere. So talk to me. What’s wrong?


Finn: What about Peter?

Anna: Uh, Valentin and I, we just got back from that, um, trip to New York. We were following a lead. Might pan out, might not help us find Peter and the baby.

Finn: What if Peter never got his hands on Maxie’s baby? What if she’s somewhere safe? There would be some consolation, wouldn’t it?

Anna: Yeah. I don’t think it would fill the emptiness in Maxie’s heart. But… sometimes I think I would have done everyone a favor if I’d just put a bullet in Peter before any of this happened.

Finn: You don’t mean that.

Anna: Don’t I?

Finn: You’d have to live with what you’d done.


Curtis: So, um… I guess this is the start of…something.

Portia: A new beginning. But, Curtis, just —

Curtis: I know, I know, no. We’ll take it slow and…see where it goes.

Portia: Thank you. And good night.


Jordan: [ Crying ]


Gladys: I need another mai tai. Brando, be an angel.

Sasha: While you’re there, I would love a lemonade. Don’t worry, Gladys. Brando will never regret his decision.

Gladys: Isn’t that a coincidence? I made that same promise to myself. And I don’t know about you, but I always keep my promises.


Dante: Sorry, Ma, we were — we weren’t fighting.

Sam: No, we were actually just, um… agreeing to disagree.

Olivia: If you say so.

Dante: [ Sighs ] Man. She doesn’t miss a thing.

Sam: Hey, there’s… nothing to see here, right? I mean, one little kiss means… next to nothing.

Dante: Right.

Sam: Right.

Dante: Okay. Yeah, that was just, uh, just one of those, uh, one-off sort of things, then.


Brook Lynn: It’s been an emotional day, but, um, nothing for you to worry about. How was physical therapy?

Chase: Ah, not so bad.

Brook Lynn: Look, I know you well enough to know your private code, okay? When Harrison Chase says “not so bad,” that actually means something’s changed — for the better, am I right?

Chase: Let’s just say I-I broke a sweat today.

Brook Lynn: Okay. Keep being all cryptic on me. But, uh, whatever it is, just know it’s really good to see you smile again.


Finn: There’s something that —

Elizabeth: Here’s the information you asked for.

Anna: Oh. Thanks. Thank you.

Elizabeth: Everything okay?

Finn: Yes. Um, if you’ll excuse me, I have a patient to see.

Anna: Mm-hmm.

Elizabeth: I also have a patient I have to check on.

Anna: Oh, sure.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Anna: Hello?

Valentin: Hello. You make any progress in the search for Peter’s accomplice?

Anna: We’ve got this all the wrong way around.

Valentin: How so?

Anna: We’re not looking for Peter’s ally. We’re looking for his enemy.


On the next “General Hospital” —

Shawn (to Jordan): I have news.

Valentin (to Anna): Do you want to tell me your new theory?

Elizabeth (to Finn): If anyone can get rid of this problem, it’s Jason.

Trina (to Spencer): There’s really only one solution.

Nikolas (to Ava): Beautiful is the word.

Austin (to Britt): What do I get in exchange?

Jason: I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Carly.

Nina (to Sonny): She’s not the only one I’m here for.

Finn and Violet on GH 7/20/21

Best Lines provided by Suzanne

Violet: These aren’t snacks, Daddy. They’re too healthy.
Finn: Well, I’m a doctor, remember? I believe in a healthy snack.
Violet: My team is going to hate me.

Valentin: You’re not making your life any easier by walking out, chopper-head.


Elizabeth: Aiden actually made them for his Little League team, so I set some aside, because I remember you saying that you’re responsible for the team snack.

Finn: Mm-hmm. And you figured I’d bring something like orange slices and carrot sticks.

Elizabeth: Mm, something like that.


Josslyn: Oh, well, I focus more on volleyball now.

Spencer: Mm, such a waste.

Josslyn: Excuse me?

Spencer: Volleyball is a team sport. Wouldn’t you rather shine as an individual?

Josslyn: Mm, no, I’d rather play the sport I love.

Spencer: Mm. Well, if you ever want to get back into tennis, I’m more than happy to give you a tutorial. I won’t bother asking you, Cam. You swing a racket like a sledgehammer.

Cam: Oh, thank you.


Josslyn: Yeah, I know. You know, Trina seemed mad at Spencer, which is strange since they’ve never met. But, you know, then again, you don’t really need to know Spencer for very long for him to rub you the wrong way.


Violet: I’m glad you’re here, Daddy. I got the hit because of you.

Elizabeth: Aw, hey, what am I, chopped liver?


Spencer: I honestly didn’t mean to mislead you.

Trina: You have no right to use the word “honestly” in a sentence.


Alexis: You are amazing. Did you promise the governor your firstborn son?

Laura: [ Chuckles ] No, I merely pointed out that his poll numbers might slip if he didn’t correct this horrible injustice. He is coming up for election.

Jordan: Mm. Finally, a politically savvy move that also achieves justice.


Trina: Spencer and I were just talking about…art. He’s really interested in my job at Ava’s gallery.

Cam: Mm. I could see the movie title now — “Spencer Cassadine, Man of the World.”

Spencer: And I can see yours — sorry. What are your interests, besides Josslyn?

General Hospital Updates

GH logo

Update written by Suzanne

Finn is watching Violet play T-Ball in the park. He brought her team snacks of carrots and orange slices, which disappoints her because they’re “too healthy.” Elizabeth arrives just in time to share Aiden’s cupcakes with her team instead. Finn is very grateful. He thanks her for saving from his daughter not speaking to him for a week. They wish their other problem could be solved so easily – disposing of Peter’s frozen body. Finn regrets that Elizabeth was involved, but she doesn’t. In a very cute scene, Finn reviews with Violet how to hit the ball with her bat. Finn and Elizabeth talk about how to get Peter’s body out of General Hospital without anyone seeing. At the same time, they’re watching the T-Ball game and cheering Violet on. Finn thinks it’s terrible that they’re talking about a human being this way, but Elizabeth counters that Peter deserved what he got. Meanwhile, Violet hits her ball and runs the bases. Elizabeth tells Finn that if anything happened to him (such as getting arrested), she would take care of Violet. He’s grateful to her. He worries that someone saw them, but she thinks that someone would have come forward by now. They can get on with their lives. Violet catches the ball and her team wins. She goes to celebrate with her coach and teammates. Finn just wants to give Violet a safe and stable home. Elizabeth assures Finn that they’ll deal with their big problem together.

Jordan runs into Laura at the PCPD. Laura asks how Shawn and Alexis are doing. Laura is worried about the calls that they’re making (because they might be too optimistic when they talk to their kids).
Alexis and Shawn are at the PCPD, talking to Molly and TJ on the phone. TJ and Molly are out celebrating their domestic partnership at the Metro Court. Alexia and Shawn tell them to make sure to have fun. Shawn and Alexis worry that they’ll get sent back to Pentonville. Someone leaked to the press about the investigation into Judge Carson’s sentencing bias, so they wonder if that will help their situations. Alexis admits that being in solitary was really awful. Laura and Jordan walk in. Laura tells them that the AG is going to make investigating Judge Carson her top priority. However, she cautions them that politicians can sometimes work at a very slow speed. Laura tells them that the governor will take action after the investigation. Jordan tells them that Alexis will be going to a facility right outside Port Charles called Spring Ridge, which is a nicer place (described as a spa with guards). They’re glad to hear it, but Alexis is still worried about Shawn and the other people that the Judge sentenced unfairly. Laura gets called away by the governor. Alexis texts Molly to give her the good news. Laura returns to tell them that the national press picked up the story about Judge Carson and her biased sentencing. He is commuting Shawn’s sentence – he can go free. They’re all very happy to hear it. Shawn wonders about the other people that the judge has been unfair to. Laura assures him that the governor will be speeding up the process of reviewing all the sentencing, but it’ll take some time. Alexis praises Laura’s skills. Laura relates that she just pointed out to the governor that his poll numbers might slip in the upcoming election if he didn’t correct this terrible injustice. Alexis then praises Shawn for helping her, and being a model prisoner. Shawn wants to call TJ, but instead, Jordan gets the idea that Shawn should surprise TJ in person instead.

Alexis is thrilled that Laura has brought her some coffee because the coffee in Pentonville is so bad. They talk about how Nikolas helped Alexis out when she was in prison. Laura admits that he does seem more like his old self now. Alexis is shocked when Laura mentions that Nikolas and Ava have a stalker.

Nikolas sends some Champagne over to TJ and Molly’s table. They invite him to sit down with them, so he does. They all catch up on what’s been going on with Alexis in prison. Nikolas is saddened to learn that Alexis was put into solitary. He’s shocked to hear that Shawn might be getting out of jail. In fact, he looks a little panicked. They toast Molly for helping to expose Judge Carson’s bias. Nikolas looks like he’s feeling guilty when TJ talks about his dad being denied parole and that they hoped he would be back in time for TJ to graduate from medical school. TJ is overjoyed when Shawn walks in, a free man. They hug. Nikolas congratulates him. Shawn tells them all that he plans to find out who really tried to kill Hayden. Nikolas looks very worried.

Cam is applying sunscreen to Josslyn’s back at the Metro Court pool when Spencer shows up. They’re surprised to see him after all this times. Spencer assures them that he’s back for good. Cam, Joss and Spencer catch up, with Spencer and Cam trading insults. Spencer is being very snooty (especially about Josslyn playing volleyball), so Josslyn pushes him into the pool (fully dressed). Trina comes in and wonders who they’re talking about. Josslyn introduces Trina to Spencer after he climbs out of the pool. Trina stares at him, stunned. Spencer pretends that he’s never met Trina, so she plays along. When Cam brings up her friend, “Victor,” Trina insults him, saying that Victor is a “total jerk.” Spencer invites Trina over to the bar so that he can dry off and she can tell him about Ava’s art gallery. Joss wonders if Trina is interested in Spencer. Cam and Josslyn say sweet things to each other.

Spencer apologizes to Trina for lying to her, but she yells at him for pretending to be Victor. She demands the truth. He tells her that Victor was his great uncle. He didn’t want anyone to know that he was in town. He explains about some of his past history with Ava. He whines that if his father finds out that he was here, it might undo all of the progress they’ve made. Trina knows what it’s like to be angry with your father and not speak to him. She agrees not to tell anyone Spencer’s secret as long as he’s honest with her.

Joss and Cam come over and wonder why Spencer and Trina have been having such an intense conversation. Trina lies that they’ve been talking about her job. Cam and Spencer trade insults.

At Ryan’s Bar in New York City, Anna and Valentin continue to question Hopkins, the pilot that Peter hired to pick him up from General Hospital’s roof. He tells them that he wasn’t able to land and pick Peter up but lets them know that there was a man with him. They ask for details, so he tells them that the man was tall and was wearing a blue or grey suit. He thought the man was a detective. After that, they bring in some police to arrest and book him. Valentin and Anna wonder who that man was, and whether he was a friend or foe of Peter’s.

GH logo

Recap written by Suzanne

Anna and Valentin, still interrogating Peter’s helicopter pilot in New York, learn that there was a man on the roof with Peter. They wonder who it could be and why he was there. Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Finn and Elizabeth watch Violet’s T-ball game while worrying about how they’re going to get rid of Peter’s dead body. At the Metro Court pool, Spencer catches up briefly with Cam and Josslyn. Trina “meets” Spencer and is furious that he’s been telling her that he’s “Victor.” He begs her not to tell anyone that he’s been lurking around town for weeks.

At the PCPD, Alexis and Shaun phone TJ and Molly to tell them to enjoy their night out of celebrating. Thanks to Laura’s intervention with the governor, Shaun is freed and Alexis gets to go to a much nicer prison, Spring Ridge. TJ and Molly fill Nikolas in at the Metro Court about what’s been going on with Alexis. He’s not pleased to hear that Shawn might get out. Later, Shaun comes by to surprise TJ and says he’s determined to find out who really tried to kill Hayden.

GH Transcript Wednesday, July 21, 2021

General Hospital Transcript

GH logo

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Ava: Paul, I appreciate the protection. You know I do. But could you please maybe be just a little less obtrusive, like maybe 10 feet back, perhaps?

Paul: Sure, Mrs. Cassadine.

Ava: Jerome, okay? Ms. Jerome.

Paul: Jerome.

Ava: Trina.

Trina: Hey. How are you doing? [ Chuckles ] Thanks for meeting me.

Ava: Oh, no, it’s my absolute pleasure. Tell me, what’s going on in your life? How’s the new guy? Any developments?


Spencer: Looking for a chair? I saved one for you.

Britt: That line doesn’t work when I can sit anywhere.

Spencer: Come on. You know you want to sit next to me.

Britt: Spencer? [ Gasps ] Oh!


Shawn: First dinner as a free man. My compliments to the chef and the lady who made it happen.

Jordan: Oh, the chef and I thank you. Watching you eat that meal was truly a sight to behold.

Shawn: Why? Because I barely stopped to breathe?

[ Both laugh ]

Shawn: I’m glad you convinced TJ and molly to continue their romantic evening instead of hanging out with us.

Jordan: It took some doing, but did you see the smile on TJ’s face when he saw you walk in here?

Shawn: Well, he’ll get sick of me soon enough, since I’ll be staying with them at Alexis’ house.

Jordan: I don’t know, they both keep pretty busy schedules. I doubt you’ll see them much.

Shawn: Still, I want to get up from out of there, find my own place, get a job, and get on with what I need to do.

Jordan: That being…?

Shawn: Jordan, you know what I’m talking about. I intend to find out who really shot Hayden.


Terry:  Finally.

Portia: I’m so sorry. It’s just all this paperwork.

Terry:  It never ends, does it?

Portia: [ Sighs ]

Terry:  I just have to change, but I’m so excited that you’re coming out for a drink tonight.

Portia: Me too. You know, I’m actually looking forward to a relaxing, uncomplicated evening. So, where do you want to go? Do you want to go to the Port Charles Grill or Metro Court?

Terry:  Oh, no. The only place to be is opening night at The Savoy.


Curtis: Wow. How we doing?

N’neka: The Savoy signature cocktail is a definite hit.

Curtis: Well, hiring a mixologist was one of my smarter moves.

Brando: Curtis Ashford.

Curtis: Uh, Brando.

Brando: Yeah. Nice to meet you. I’ve heard nothing but good things about you.

Curtis: Well, thank you. And enjoy your time at The Savoy.

Brando: I will, man. And congratulations. This place is great.

Curtis: Thank you. I now leave you in the capable hands of my bartender, N’neka.

Brando: Hey.

N’neka: Hey. Try our signature Savoy?

Brando: Actually, house craft beer will be fine. And start a tab. This could be a long night.

Spinelli: Oh, I second that. Um, another vodka orange soda, barkeep. [ Clears throat ] Mr. Corbin. Have you too come to drown your sorrows?

Brando: Something like that.

Spinelli: Ah. Allow me to speculate. An affair of the heart.


[ Indistinct conversations ]

Michael: Oh, oh, hey! Sorry! Sasha, I’m so sorry. One second. Uh…

Sasha: Thank you.

Michael: Oh, hey. “Infant nutrition,” “what to eat while you’re breastfeeding”? I’m sensing a doctor’s appointment.

Sasha: Close — nutrition class. Got to start this little person off right. What about you? Board meeting?

Michael: Close — visiting my grandmother. Well, you know, you got things figured out since our last conversation.

Sasha: I’m trying. I intend to give my baby everything he or she needs.

Michael: You know, you don’t have to do it all on your own. I’m sure Brando would want to be there.

Sasha: I’m sure he would. I’m just not so sure I want him to be.


Chase: Hey.

Willow: Hey.

Chase: Are you finished with class?

Willow: Yes. How about you? You almost ready to go?

Chase: Almost there.

physical therapist: You put in some good work today. Soon you’ll be over there walking.

Chase: Well, why wait? Let’s do this.


Jordan: I know how important clearing your name is to you. I’m just concerned about how you intend to do it.

Shawn: Carefully. Look, Jordan, I pled guilty even though I knew I was innocent because I knew I had things to atone for. But attempting to kill Hayden Barnes was not one of them. And taking responsibility for something I did not do, I inadvertently covered up a would-be murderer, someone who really wanted Hayden dead — and damn near succeeded. That person should be brought to justice.

Jordan: I know. But because you confessed and pled guilty, the D.A. suspended the investigation into Hayden’s shooting. Five years is long enough for a case to go cold. I mean, there is still a chance that the perp that made the attempt could be found.

Nikolas: I apologize for interrupting, but I need to know, has the PCPD made any progress per the search for Ava’s stalker?


Portia: You know, I’ve been looking forward to the Metro Court zucchini sticks all day.

Terry: I love them, too. Let’s go there for dinner after. The Savoy is drinks only.

Portia: We can get dinner and drinks there. You know, one-stop shopping.

Terry: It’s The Savoy’s opening night. I want to be where the action is.

Portia: Yeah, but that’s just it. It’s gonna be all crowded and noisy.

Terry: Who doesn’t love crowded and noisy?

Portia: Let’s just go another night. After all the hype and everything has gone down.

Terry: Okay, spill.

Portia: What?

Terry: What’s the real reason you don’t want to go?


Britt: When did you get back? Wait, is this why you ghosted me months ago? You were planning a surprise?

Spencer: I didn’t ghost you. I was busy with graduation. And then I took some time afterwards touring Europe.

Britt: Britt: Wow. Listen to you sounding all continental.

Spencer: Mm-hmm.

Britt: Let’s sit. I want to hear all about the crazy things you did to celebrate graduation.


Ava: Oh, no, don’t tell me that — what’s his name again?

Trina: Uh…

Ava: Victor.  Please don’t tell me this Victor turned out to be some kind of creep.

Trina: Undecided.

Ava: What did he do?

Trina: He’s charming and fun, but he’s also totally unreliable. Plus, there’s some weirdness between him and his family, and I’m not sure what to do about it.


Chase: [ Grunts ]

Willow: There you go.

physical therapist: Now, I’m gonna let go of you. Let’s see if you can stand on your own.

Chase: Okay.

Willow: Chase!


Britt: Does Nikolas realize you’re home? Or does he think you’re still wandering around Europe?

Spencer: Father knows. I surprised him at Wyndemere.

Britt: So, things are better between you?

Spencer: Eh, define “better.”

Britt: Look, you had every right to be angry with him.

Spencer: But I should be over it by now?

Britt: He let you believe he was dead for three years. You thought you were an orphan. Those aren’t things anyone just gets over. And if you said you did, I’d be worried about you.

Spencer: Then you don’t have to worry.

Britt: But getting through anger is a process, Spencer. It is possible to come out the other side if you keep moving forward.

Spencer: Do you speak from experience?

Britt: Yeah. I mean, I’m not always successful at letting go of my anger, but I understand it’s necessary and it’s a goal I’m working toward.

Spencer: And you think that I should do the same?

Britt: I think…if you don’t rebuild the relationship with your father, it will hurt him, no question. But it will also hurt you.

Spencer: I’m here, aren’t I? Supporting Father in his time of need.

Britt: Are you referring to the divorce from Ava? Because Nikolas has definitely been on edge, making wild accusations. Did he tell you about the stalker?


Nikolas: This has been going on for a month now. The threats are escalating. Ava’s gallery was trashed. The stalker was able to leave a toy in Avery’s room. It is unacceptable that there’s been —

Stella: Shawn Butler?

Jordan: Stella, whatever you have to say, just —

Shawn: I’m okay, Jordan. Yes, ma’am, I’m Shawn Butler. And you’re Ms. Henry, Thomas’ aunt. I can’t tell you how sorry —

Stella: I’m not interested in your contrition. But I do have a few things to say to the man who killed my nephew.


Brando: Put it on my tab. It’s the least I can do after you helped rescue my mom and me from Renault.

Spinelli: Well, it was a — thanks — it was my honor. [ Exhales sharply ] Gratified that someone appreciated my efforts.

Brando: You were taken hostage. I mean, Renault was gonna trade you for my mother. I’m thankful that we got out okay.

Spinelli: Sorry. Physical safety is cause for relief. But, unfortunately, my — my heart became collateral damage. See, my partner, Ellie, became increasingly alarmed by my association with the Corinthos organization and the ensuing threat of — of danger and violence. And she wanted me to get out. And when I balked, she walked.

Brando: She left you?

Spinelli: Ellie realized that if she wanted to make a change, to build a new life, maybe have a future with someone else, that she had to start now. So she did. [ Chuckles ] She’s gone.

Brando: Sorry. That’s rough. Were you together long?

Spinelli: Nine years. We were — we were — we were raising my daughter together, mostly in Oregon. We were a happy family unit. But when we relocated to Queens Point, I became more involved with my friends and their business. And, at one point, Ellie said, “can you be a friend and not participate in the ancillary activities?” But it’s just not possible. With my area of expertise, my area of expertise is so invaluable to my friends, but not only that, I… I savor the challenge. I like doing what I do and knowing that I’m good at it. Alas, it has cost me a relationship that I greatly treasured.


Michael: Did something happen between you and Brando?

Sasha: Brando is a great guy. I like him on almost every level.

Michael: Almost.

Sasha: I think we want different things for our lives.

Michael: Okay. I’m not sure I follow exactly, but sometimes guys take a beat to process and fully embrace what parenthood might mean for their lives, so that might be it.

Sasha: That is not it. Brando definitely wants to be involved. I’m the one who’s not sure how that’s gonna look.

Michael: Noted. Alright. I’m gonna take my two cents and just be on my way, then.

Sasha: No, you don’t have to leave. All I’m saying is that I am ready to do it alone if I have to. Be a single mom.

Michael: At the — at the risk of wading back into deep water — here, have a seat. Look, being a parent isn’t always a picnic, let alone being a single parent. And I have all the confidence that you’ll manage. But I just — I want you to go into it with your eyes wide open. Okay? Also, I’m available for any, you know, new-parent freakouts you may have. I’m pretty sure I invented some of them, so I’m at your service.

Sasha: [ Laughs ]

Michael: Also, just so you know, I — I still consider you a good friend.

Sasha: Thanks, Michael. Same goes for me. I am just as invested in your happiness as you are in mine. That includes talking about someone you can’t talk to anyone else about. Willow. If you ever need a sympathetic shoulder with no judgment, I’m here for you.


Chase: I want something more effective than hydration and stretches.

Willow: Hey, the fact that you’re here and working toward recovery at all, it’s a blessing, right? It’s just going to take some time.

Chase: This isn’t what you signed up for.

Willow: I seem to remember a clause about sickness and in health.

Chase: Well, I don’t think that vow can apply when I can’t be your husband. Not really.

Willow: That is not true.

Chase: Willow, you know what I mean. We can’t even share the same bed. I don’t want to wake you up when my legs are cramping. I know you need your rest because you’ve got school and you’ve got Wiley.

Willow: And I’ve got you. Listen to me. I don’t care about sleeping in separate beds.

Chase: But I do. This — this is not who I am. Okay? I am sick of our relationship revolving around my health. I just — I want to be your husband, not your patient. God, I want your love, not your pity.

Willow: I do love you, Chase.

Chase: Then let me do what I have to do.

Willow: Chase, I understand your frustration.

Chase: How can you? All I want is to live a normal life with the person that I love, and that seems impossible right now. [ Scoffs ] I’m — I’m sorry, Willow. I shouldn’t be railing at you. This is exactly what I didn’t want to happen. I don’t want to take my frustrations out on my wife.

physical therapist: Ready for some stretching?

Chase: Yeah. Hey, I’ll call you when I’m done, okay?


Portia: So they decided to get a divorce, and I don’t even know if it’s gone through or anything, I have no idea, but it’s just too soon to be getting involved with anyone.

Terry: Says who?

Portia: Everyone. Conventional wisdom, common sense.

Terry: Oh, and you want to live your life by conventional rules?

Portia: Terry, nobody wants to be on the other end of a rebound relationship.

Terry: Right. Better to nip it in the bud, especially when there’s chemistry.

Portia: I mean, when things were good between us, they were really good. And, yes, that old chemistry is still there.

Terry: Sounds dreadful.

[ Both chuckle ]

Portia: Okay, okay, fine. Yes, yes. I’m still attracted to the man, yes. If anything, even more so. I mean, Curtis back in the day, I mean, it was clear that he was just piecing his life back together. But Curtis now, I mean, he’s grounded and stable.

Terry: And still sexy.

Portia: I certainly think so.

Terry: Yeah.

Portia: And he’s definitely interested.

Terry: Uh-huh.

Portia: And he told me where I could find him tonight.

Terry: So, what happens if you don’t go?

Portia: I don’t know. My fear is that I will lose him in my life as a friend.

Terry: You make it sound like you’re gonna lose him no matter what. Stop me if I’m being intrusive, but I think you want a chance with the man, so what’s holding you back?


Shawn: Would you like to talk privately, Ms. Henry?

Stella: I suppose that would be best.

Shawn: I’ll be back.

Nikolas: That is tense.

Jordan: And none of your business.

Nikolas: The investigation into my stalker is definitely my business. Did the bootprint that your team found at the scene lead to anything?

Jordan: Yes, we’re making progress.

Nikolas: Can you be more specific? I need details.

Jordan: Why? So you can set another trap? Take matters into your own hands? I’m afraid not. That’s all you’re getting.

Nikolas: But I have a right to know.

Jordan: You do not have a right to interfere with an ongoing police investigation. Stay out of it, Nikolas. Leave it to the police. End of discussion.


Spencer: I’ve heard all about Ava’s trials and tribulations. I just wish I could have been there to see her face when she saw that roach.

Britt: You should have seen my face when Nikolas accused me of being the stalker.

Spencer: You have to admit, though, some of the stunts are clever enough to be yours.

Britt: They’re not stunts, Spencer. They’re malicious acts designed to cause fear. And they worked. Ava is terrified.

Spencer: Well, it’s over. Now that Father and Ava are divorcing, the gifts have stopped, right?

Britt: Again, not really gifts.

Spencer: You know what I mean.

Britt: [ Laughs ]

Spencer: You’ve always understood me.

Britt: Likewise. Oh! It’s so good to see you. Can you hang for a bit?

Spencer: Yeah, for a bit. I’ve been here practically all day.

Britt: Okay. Well, I’m gonna get a drink. Do you want one?

Spencer: Gin and tonic.

Britt: Ha! One iced tea, coming up.

Spencer: In Europe, the drinking age is 18.

Britt: This ain’t Europe.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Spencer: Father?

Nikolas: I’m heading home. I’ll give you a ride if you want. Still at the pool?

Spencer: Yes. I just need to change. Why don’t you come have a drink at the pool while you wait for me?


Sasha: Chase, I heard you were here. How’s it going?

Chase: It’s going.

Sasha: You know, physical therapy takes time.

Chase: That’s what they tell me.

Sasha: I would say my experience is with a different type of rehab, but if you ever want to talk…

Chase: Thanks, but I’m all talked out. If anything, I wish Willow would talk more.

Sasha: About what?

Chase: What’s going on with her. I wish she would say more than the obligatory “keep it up” and “don’t lose hope.”

Sasha: I’m sure she means every word.

Chase: Yeah, but I feel like there’s something that she’s not telling me. Has Willow said anything to you?


Michael: Willow. Hey. What’s wrong?

Willow: [ Sighs ] It’s nothing.

Michael: It’s definitely not nothing.

Willow: [ Sighs ] Chase is in physical therapy. He’s working hard, but he’s frustrated with his progress and… he’s lashing out.

Michael: At you?


Stella: Thomas was my nephew. I lived with my sister the whole time he and Curtis were growing up. I helped raise him. We were very close.

Shawn: He always spoke very highly of you.

Stella: I don’t need you to tell me about Thomas. I knew him down to the soles of his feet.

Shawn: With all due respect, ma’am, what do you need from me? You want to unload on me? Fine. I’ll stand right here and take your verbal lashing. I owe you that at least. I know what I took from you.

Stella: [ Scoffs ] Please. You can’t possibly understand what you took from me. What my family lost. Thomas was a good man and a good father. He should have lived to see his son grow up and become a doctor. What? You gonna tell me you’re TJ’s father now? Because a father is more than DNA.

Shawn: Look, you’ll get no argument from me. TJ accepts that, and so do I. Thomas was TJ’s father, but so am I.


Britt: So, besides the legal drinking age… [ Laughs ] Did you miss France? Did you leave someone special behind?

Spencer: France will always be there. What about you? Have you found someone who even slightly deserves you?

Britt: [ Chuckles ] You know, not many people would consider me a catch.

Spencer: Au contraire. If you haven’t found someone worthy of you, then you’re not looking in the right places.  Father! Hey. Look who’s here.

Nikolas: Hello, Britt.

Britt: Nikolas.


Portia: I was married when I first met Curtis, and I didn’t tell him. Marcus and I were on the outs, and I had no business starting anything with anyone. [ Sighs ] And when I finally did tell Curtis, he just walked away. I’m sure he was just hurt and felt betrayed.

Terry: So what are you saying? You really think Curtis is out for revenge?

Portia: No. God, no, of course not. No, I’m just, um… I don’t know. I guess I’m just a little scared. You know, what if I open myself up to him and then he has a change of heart and he walks away again, you know? [ Clears throat ] I haven’t really let myself be vulnerable since.

Terry: Since Curtis.

Portia: I mean, I’ve dated and stuff, but… you know. [ Stammers ] I just had other priorities, you know? I got to make sure that Trina’s okay and my career. Right?

Terry: Fair enough. Fair enough. That was then and this is now. Trina’s on her way to college, and your career is well-established. Sounds like it’s been a long time since you’ve let yourself be happy with a man. And things with Curtis sound promising. But what do I know? I’m just an oncologist, not a psychologist.

[ Both chuckle ]

Terry: Tell you what. I’m going. I’ll meet you at The Savoy in a few or at the Metro Court for dinner later. Your choice.


Curtis: Alright, you having a good evening? My bartender, N’neka, taking care of you?

Brando: Yes, she is. Everything’s great. House beer — first rate.

Curtis: Glad to hear it.

Brando: Can I ask you something?

Curtis: Uh, yeah, sure.

Brando: Have you ever had a woman give you an ultimatum? Said, “do this or you can’t be in my life”?

Curtis: Okay, it sounds like your lady, and she must have a good reason.

Brando: Eh… Sasha thinks that… she doesn’t like certain aspects of my life. She thinks they’re dangerous.

Curtis: Sasha. Oh, okay. Well, it sounds like she’s concerned that something might happen to you. Does she do this all the time? You know, ultimatums, giving orders?

Brando: No, no, no. She’s great. I mean, we respect each other.

Curtis: So are you sure it was an ultimatum or was she just being honest with you about what she can and cannot live with?

Brando: Yeah. Yeah, okay. I hadn’t thought of it that way.

Curtis: And to answer your first question, I don’t recall a woman ever doing that to me, but I’m sure I’ve done it. Sometimes you’ve got to say what you want, even if it means you might lose what you have.


Sasha: Willow is a pretty honest person. What do you think she’s holding back?

Chase: When Willow and I got married, we thought I only had a few hours to live. And now she’s stuck with an invalid husband.

Sasha: You’re recovering, Chase. And I say this with love, but you are an idiot if you think that Willow is anything but profoundly grateful that you survived.

Chase: Yes, Willow is grateful and so am I. I know I’m lucky to be alive, but… I know Willow. And there’s something behind her eyes, something she’s holding back.


Michael: Chase is going through hell right now, but that does not give him the right to take his pain out on you.

Willow: No, Chase is mostly taking his anger and frustration out on himself. I just feel so inadequate. All I can seem to offer are platitudes. “Be patient. You’ll get there.”

Michael: Willow, Chase is strong. He will come back from this. And you’re gonna be a big reason why he will.

Willow: I pray you’re right. I’m being selfish. Chase is the one struggling to get his life back, and I’m sitting here feeling sorry for myself.

Michael: Hey. You have to stop beating yourself up. You are doing an incredible job supporting Chase.

Willow: No chance you’re biased? No, not at all. And I’m the one who truly knows what this is costing you.


Stella: You compare yourself to the man who was there for TJ until he died?

Shawn: No, you are. I know Thomas loved TJ, but I love him, too. I couldn’t be his father because up until recently, I didn’t know I was his father.

Stella: And until recently, you were behind bars. Where you should have been a lot sooner for killing my nephew.

Shawn: Thomas was my best friend.

Stella: [ Scoffs ]

Shawn: But he snapped. He threatened to kill me. I shot on self-defense. I’ll carry the pain and weight of that for the rest of my life.

Stella: Oh, sure, sure. He was your best friend. But that didn’t stop you from sleeping with his wife. He snapped because of your betrayal.

Jordan: It wasn’t all on Shawn, Stella. We both know that.

Stella: [ Sighs ] Jordan, you and I have made our peace, but don’t expect me to offer it to the man who ended my nephew’s life. He’s lucky to be out of prison. If it were up to me, he’d rot there.

Jordan: You’re not being fair, Stella.

Shawn: Just…let Ms. Henry say her piece.

Stella: I have nothing more to say to you. Just please stay out of my way.

Shawn: I’ll do my best, ma’am. Jordan, thanks for dinner. Good night.

Jordan: Are you all right?

Stella: [ Exhales deeply ]

Jordan: You look shaky.

Stella: It’s been a long time coming. But I confronted him. I did it. And I stand by everything I said.

Jordan: Did it make you feel any better?


Ava: So, what did Victor do that has you on the fence?

Trina: Basically, he lied to me.

Ava: I don’t like the sound of that.

Trina: Well, it was more of a lie of omission, which is still technically a lie, but it didn’t directly affect me. So I guess I shouldn’t care.  It’s still bothersome. I don’t know. Maybe I’m overthinking it.

Ava: And maybe you’re making excuses for him, giving him a little wiggle room. Sounds to me like you like this guy.

Trina: Yeah. He’s interesting. Not like a lot of the guys around here.

Ava: Oh. So are you gonna go out with him?

Trina: Oh, we’re not dating. We’re just hanging out as friends.

Ava: Oh. Oh. Friends.


Nikolas: I thought you were gonna change.

Spencer: I was, and then Britt and I got to talking. I’ll go right now. I, um… my clothes should be back from housekeeping. Please, Father, help yourself to my iced tea.

Britt: Uh, Spencer. [ Sighs ]

Nikolas: I’m sorry, Britt, for accusing you of being the stalker. I was at the end of my rope.

Britt: I was sorry to hear that you and Ava are getting a divorce.

Nikolas: It’s not over yet. I’m surprised that Spencer is trying to matchmake. He and I have been cool toward each other since he’s been home.

Britt: But he is home in your hour of need. That’s something.

Nikolas: It is. I’m so glad to have him back. I mean, at least one thing is going right in my life.


Brando: Thank you for your advice.

Curtis: Look, man, you know what, sometimes I just like to hear myself talk.

Brando: Yeah, well, you said exactly what I needed to hear. Did I tell you I’m gonna be a father?

Curtis: Ohh. [ Laughs ] Well, now I understand the ultimatum, huh?

Brando: Yeah, yeah. I’ve been an idiot. I mean, there’s no choice to be made. How can I walk away from someone as wonderful as Sasha?

Curtis: Well, congratulations. I’m really happy for you.

Brando: Thank you.

Curtis: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no. Keep that away, all right? This one’s on me. Consider it an early baby shower present. And good luck to you, brother.

Brando: Thank you.


Sasha: I think that you are holding Willow to a higher standard than your own.

Chase: What?

Sasha: Do you share all your doubts and moments of weakness with Willow? You might think that Willow is perfect, but she’s not. She’s human, Chase, and she’s scared and worried and just trying to figure things out as she goes.

Chase: I get it. I do. But she doesn’t have to hold it all in.

Sasha: Like you do? Loving someone doesn’t mean that you have to share every single thought with the other person, especially when you’re trying to protect the other person. And you’re both doing that.

Chase: And I’m not protecting her by snapping at her, which is exactly what I did today.

Sasha: I think that Willow understands how frustrating this is for you, and I know that she’s committed to helping you through your recovery. You don’t need to doubt her.


Michael: You’ve put your entire life on hold to literally help Chase get back on his feet. And I see you burning the candle at both ends while still managing to keep a smile on your face. I just — [ Sighs ] I don’t know, I wish there was something that I could do to help.

Willow: Michael, I know I’m — I’m putting more than my life on hold. I’m putting us on hold. Our family, our future. And that’s not fair, either. How long can I ask you to keep waiting for me?


Ava: It sounds to me like you’re willing to overlook Victor’s lie of omission.

Trina: I want to.

Ava: Well… then do it. Take a chance.

Trina: You still believe that? Even after the way things ended with you and Nikolas?

Ava: Yes. I believe in living life, you know? Not just watching from the sidelines. Get out there and enjoy yourself.

Trina: Yes, ma’am.

Ava: And be careful. And if this Victor crosses the line, he’s gonna have to answer to me.

Trina: Get in line behind my dad.

Ava: [ Laughs ] Yeah, right. And your mom. You have quite a lineup of protectors. Really, overall, Trina, trust your instincts. This Victor, he sounds — sounds like he might be a bad boy. They are exciting. But they can be trouble, too.


Spencer: Where’s Father?

Britt: He had to make a call. Not cool, Spencer.

Spencer: Huh?

Britt: “Huh?” Nikolas and I are over. He loves Ava. And I don’t have time for distractions.

Spencer: Things change. It’s only a matter of time before Father puts Ava and his farce of a marriage behind him.


Shawn: I heard you were still in the game. How about we work together?


Stella: I admit, lashing out to that man didn’t — didn’t ease the pain of losing Thomas, but I needed to do it. [ Scoffs ] You know I speak my mind.

Jordan: All too well.

Stella: Go on. Say it.

Jordan: Stella, what were you thinking? Telling Portia to back off Curtis?

Stella: I was thinking you and Curtis need more time to work out your differences and remember how much you love each other. Jordan, I gave you the opportunity to fight for your man. Why didn’t you take it?


Michael: Hey, you never have to ask. I’ll wait forever if I have to. But you’re my future, Willow. So take that worry off your plate, okay? I’m not going anywhere. As much as I want to hold you and make love to you, I’ll go on being your friend and co-parent as long as it takes.

Willow: Michael, I love you. So much my heart hurts. I want you, too. And I’m so sorry. I wish things were different.

Michael: I understand your commitment to staying with Chase. So we wait. As long as Chase needs you.

Chase: [ Grunting ] Come on. You can do this. Do it for Willow. There we go. All right.


On the next “General Hospital” —

Brando (to Sasha): Sometimes you have to make choices. I’ve made mine.

Finn (to Elizabeth):  Monsters never really die. They haunt you forever.

Brook Lynn (to Valentin): And you’re sure that’s all you are? A team?

Sam (to Olivia): Dante told you about that?

Anna (to Dante): We need to keep that information confidential.

Stella (to Jordan): Do you want this marriage to be over?

Curtis (to Portia): Your timing couldn’t have been any better.

General Hospital Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Finn:  Hey, sweetheart! Are you and your team ready for some snacks?

Violet: Mm-hmm. We’re starving.

Finn:  Yeah, a big-time game of T-ball will do that to you. Okay, here you go. Have at it.

Violet: These aren’t snacks, Daddy. They’re too healthy.

Finn:  Well, I’m a doctor, remember? I believe in a healthy snack.

Violet: My team is going to hate me.

Finn:  Oh. Well, we don’t want that.

Elizabeth: I hope it’s okay. I brought Aiden’s cupcakes for your team’s snack!

Violet: Thank you, Aunt Elizabeth!

Finn:  Yes. Thank you, Aunt Elizabeth. You saved my life.


Hopkins: Why are you so interested in my sister? What the hell is this? Aah!

Valentin: Move, and I break your wrist.

Anna: Alright. I want you to tell me about the baby your sister helped kidnap and the father, Peter August.


[ Telephones ringing in distance ]

[ Jordan sighs ]

Laura: Jordan. How are Alexis and Shawn doing?

Jordan: And good evening to you, too, Mayor Collins. They’re both in the interrogation room making a few phone calls to loved ones.

Laura: You’ll need to cut that short.


Alexis: Yes, I’m absolutely sure.

Molly: But, Mom —

Alexis: Don’t “but, Mom” me. I mean it. And the same thing goes for — for Kristina and Sam. The three of you, there’s nothing that you can do at this juncture. And if anything changes, I’ll let you know.

TJ: Is my dad with her?

Alexis: Yeah — uh, yeah. Tell TJ that — that he’s right here, and — and I’m going to hand the phone over. But I want to say one more thing. You have fun tonight and — and don’t worry about me for a second, and I love you.

Molly: I love you, too.

Alexis: Okay, here.

Shawn: Hey, TJ, you there?

TJ: You’re going to tell me the same thing Alexis told Molly?

Shawn: You got that right. Look, you and Molly enjoy yourselves. If I get any updates on my situation, you’ll be the first to know.

TJ: It’ll be good news. I know it.

Shawn: [ Sighs ] I hope so. See you soon, son.

TJ: See you soon, Dad.

Shawn: Ah, TJ’s hopes are up so high. He’s gonna be devastated if I get sent back to Pentonville.

Alexis: I think it might be unavoidable. For both of us.


TJ: Should we take our parents’ advice and spend the evening having fun?

Molly: Well, that was our intent when we came here. And it does make sense. I mean, after tonight, I may never see you again. You’ll be so busy doing rotations at the hospital, Dr. Ashford.

TJ: And you will be studying for the bar exam, Counselor Lansing-Davis, while continuing to work for the D.A. So let’s eat, drink, and indulge in each other while we can.

Molly: Oh! Did you order Champagne?

TJ: I’m afraid that is not in my budget. You have the wrong table.

Waitress: The Champagne is from the gentleman at the bar.

[ Indistinct conversations ]


Cam: Hey, do you need more sunscreen?

Josslyn: Oh. Yeah, actually. That’d be great. I can feel myself starting to roast.

Cam: Do you want me to…?

Josslyn: Please.

Spencer: Watch the hands, townie.

Josslyn: Spencer?

Spencer: Live and in person.

Josslyn: [ Chuckles ] Um, how are you? What made you decide to grace us with your presence? It’s been forever.

Spencer: I thought it would be forever until you two got together. How’d that happen?

Cam: Just lucky, I guess.

Josslyn: Mm.

Cam: So, how long you in town for?

Spencer: Oh, I’m back for good.


Anna: Well, I’m confused. I don’t know — I don’t understand. You just said that you were hired by Peter to take him off the roof at G.H.

Hopkins: That was the plan. But I couldn’t get the chopper close enough, so I had to abort.

Anna: If you didn’t airlift him out, how did he escape?

Hopkins: I have no idea. And I’m done. You have any more questions, talk to my lawyer. I don’t have to tell you or you squat.

Valentin: You’re not making your life any easier by walking out, chopper-head. In fact, you’re making your life a hell of a lot worse.

Anna: Because you have one shot to help yourself. Mr. Hopkins, are you listening? I need you to tell me what happened to Peter August.


Valentin: I think you agreed to work for Peter August ’cause your sister asked you to.

Anna: And the money was good. We know he wired you funds.

Valentin: So you can talk nice with us here, or we can charge you with obstruction of justice.

Anna: Have you fingerprinted. I don’t think the New York Methodist is going to be all that happy to have one of their medevac pilots arrested. Come on. Come on! What happened on the roof?

Hopkins: I couldn’t land. The hospital wouldn’t give me clearance.

Anna: So how did Peter escape?

Hopkins: All I know is that August told me he’d be alone on the hospital roof, but he wasn’t.


Violet: My cousin Aiden made cupcakes!

[ Children clamoring ]

Finn: You just made my daughter’s day.

Elizabeth: Oh, well, I’m happy to help. Aiden actually made them for his Little League team, so I set some aside, because I remember you saying that you’re responsible for the team snack.

Finn: Mm-hmm. And you figured I’d bring something like orange slices and carrot sticks.

Elizabeth: Mm, something like that.

[ Both laugh ]

Finn: Well, thank you for saving me from a week of my daughter not speaking to me. Too bad our other problem isn’t as easily solved.

Elizabeth: You can’t stop thinking about it, can you?

Finn: I’m funny that way when I… kill someone and hide them in the hospital freezer.

Elizabeth: Well, you didn’t do it alone, Finn.

Finn: I wish to god I had.


Cam: Well, last I heard, you were taking a gap year, touring the world.

Spencer: I didn’t realize you kept up with my activities.

Cam: Grandma gives me the updates.

Spencer: Mm.

Cam: And Aiden is all kinds of jealous. You know, with your studying in France, I’m sure he would love to study pastry cooking in Paris.

Spencer: [ Chuckles ] My school didn’t offer culinary courses. It was more focused on the traditional curriculum — languages, mathematics — and the extracurriculars, of course — riding, theater.

Cam: Oh, yeah. Grandma said you were the lead in every show.

Spencer: She exaggerates. I was the lead in most of them.

Cam: Mm.

Josslyn: Mm-hmm. So, Spencer, how’s your tennis game?

Spencer: Better than ever. Yours?

Josslyn: Oh, well, I focus more on volleyball now.

Spencer: Mm, such a waste.

Josslyn: Excuse me?

Spencer: Volleyball is a team sport. Wouldn’t you rather shine as an individual?

Josslyn: Mm, no, I’d rather play the sport I love.

Spencer: Mm. Well, if you ever want to get back into tennis, I’m more than happy to give you a tutorial. I won’t bother asking you, Cam. You swing a racket like a sledgehammer.

Cam: Oh, thank you.

Josslyn: [ Chuckles ] Wow. You have not changed.

Spencer: Did you want me to?

Josslyn: No. What I’d like for you to do is… cool off.

Spencer: Oh —

Cam: [ Laughs ]

Josslyn: [ Laughs ]

Spencer: Ah.

Cam: Well, Spencer’s still annoying.

Josslyn: Oh, I don’t even think he can help it.

Trina: Who’s this annoying Spencer you guys are talking about?

Josslyn: Oh.

Cam: He’s an old friend. “Friend” might be stretching it.

Josslyn: No, Spencer is most definitely a friend. I mean, we’ve known him since before you were even in Port Charles.

Trina: Mm, well, I can’t wait to meet him.

Josslyn: Well, you know what? I think this might just be the perfect opportunity for that. Trina Robinson, Spencer Cassadine.


Nikolas: I don’t want to interrupt your night out.

TJ: You ordered the champagne. It’s only fair you share it with us.

Molly: And congratulate TJ and me on our domestic partnership.

Nikolas: I’m really happy the two of you made things official.

Molly: Thank you. And not to be a downer, but I hear that you and Ava are dealing with a stalker. The PCPD keeps the D.A.’s office posted.

Nikolas: Oh, I’m glad they’re taking it seriously. Any news on your mom? I saw her a couple times early on, but I haven’t been able to visit lately, which is remiss on my part.

TJ: Guess he hasn’t heard.

Nikolas: Heard what? Well, please tell me you have good news.

Molly: Well, it — it wasn’t good for a while. In fact, it was torture for my mom. She was locked up in solitary.


Shawn: Jordan told me someone leaked to the press about the investigation into Judge Carson’s sentencing bias.

Alexis: Is that good or bad for us?

Shawn: I doubt it’ll make a difference in my case. I pled guilty to shooting Hayden Barnes. I’ll probably end up back in Pentonville.

Alexis: After everything Jordan’s done for you, why would you say that?

Shawn: Because I know how the system works — slowly, very slowly. The investigation into the judge could take years. And in the end, they could determine that Carson did nothing wrong.

Alexis: Carson’s the one that should be in Pentonville, not you.

Shawn: Well, thanks for the support. But I worry more about you.

Alexis: [ Sighs, clears throat ] I’ll be okay as long as they don’t put me back in solitary. Honestly, I-I can’t do that. That was humbling. I-I mean, I was not prepared for that. That’s a tiny cell and — and — and no —

[ Door opens ]

Alexis: What happened? Any news?


Spencer: Sorry I’m all wet, but my old pal Josslyn is still a prankster.

Trina: Mm.

Spencer: What was your name again? Tina?

Trina: Trina.

Josslyn: Oh, uh, Trina, you actually have a connection to Spencer. Trina works at Ava’s art gallery, and Spencer here is Ava’s stepson.

Spencer: Not for much longer. Ava and my father are splitting up. Soon he’ll just be my father, and Ava won’t be my anything.

Josslyn: Mm, Spencer hasn’t forgiven Ava for forcing his dad into marriage.

Trina: Mm.

Josslyn: Spencer has been in France at boarding school for the past — I don’t know how many years.

Trina: Boarding school? France? You’re just full of surprises. I bet you left a trail of broken hearts behind.

Josslyn: Oh, well, he hasn’t taken the time to fill us in on his love life. But, uh, don’t get any ideas about Trina, okay, because she is all about her mystery man.

Trina: Victor. But he’s never met Cam or Joss. And when he and I took a selfie on his phone, he never sent it to me to show them. I wonder why.

Cam: Joss and I are starting to believe that this Victor guy doesn’t even exist.

Trina: It’s no great loss. I thought Victor was cool. Turns out he’s a total jerk.


TJ: To my beautiful, intelligent, and courageous domestic partner, for exposing Judge Carson’s bias to the world.

Molly: Well, my mom deserves credit for researching the judge and her biased sentences. And Martin Grey got the recording of Judge Carson admitting that she sentences people of color more harshly than she does white people.

Nikolas: Your mom must be incredibly proud.

Molly: Yeah, well, proud of me and relieved to be out of Pentonville. TJ’s mom made an arrangement to transfer my mom to the PCPD lockup for the time being.

Nikolas: God. I wish I’d known about the tough time that Alexis was going through.

Molly: Hopefully the worst is over.

TJ: Now that Judge Carson’s biases have been leaked to the press, the Attorney General’s office is under pressure to start an investigation.

Nikolas: Is there a chance that Alexis could go free?


Alexis: When the two of you get all sphinx-like, I get nervous. Are Shawn and I going back to Pentonville?

Shawn: Is this about the media leak you mentioned?

Laura: Uh, let’s just say that the Attorney General has called me to let me know that she is going to make the investigation into Judge Carson her top priority.

Alexis: Great. Do you know who leaked the story so I can send them flowers?

Shawn: Oh, I’m sure they have no idea.

Jordan: Well, Judge Carson’s rulings are in public record, so the leak could have come from anyone.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Jordan: It’s the A.G.

Laura: I told her to call you from now on. So, um… the A.G. and the governor are both very nervous about the amount of press around Judge Carson.

Shawn: Well, that’s good for us, right?

Laura: Not necessarily. That’s why I wanted to talk to you first, before you talk to your kids, before you get anybody’s hopes up. It’s just that I know how politicians operate. They need to talk out every single issue, and sometimes, it takes months. Even years. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. But it is still a waiting game.


Anna: There was another person on the roof with Peter?

Hopkins: Yeah. I was supposed to take only August to Pautuck. This other person could have implicated me in August’s escape, so I was relieved when G.H. wouldn’t give me the clearance to land.

Anna: Can you describe this other person that was on the roof?


Elizabeth: Finn, you really need to hear me when I say I don’t regret in the least helping you hide Peter’s body.

Violet: Hi.

Finn: Oh, wow. Let me get that for you.

Elizabeth: Looks like Aiden’s cupcakes are popular!

Violet: Mm-hmm. My team voted that he should make them for all our games.

Elizabeth: Oh, well, you’ll have to ask him if he wants to.

Violet: Okay.

Finn: Hey, are you ready? It’s almost your turn to bat.

Violet: Um, can you show me one more time just in case?

Finn: Yeah, yeah. Come here. Let’s do this right here. We’re gonna do it just like we practiced, okay? See, you take the bat. We’ve got our feet — we got our feet kind of shoulder-width apart like that. Stay like that. Uh, grip up a little bit here. Alright, and then we keep the eye on the ball. We imagine the ball right in front of us, right? And who are we looking at? Are we looking at the other players?

Violet: No.

Finn: No. Are we looking at the coach?

Violet: No way. We’re looking at the ball.

Finn: That’s right. We’re keeping our eye on the ball. We’re looking at the ball all the way in. And when everything feels right in the universe, we’re gonna swing. We’re gonna swing nice and level with our eye on the ball, okay? Just like that. That is perfect, right? You ready?

Violet: Thank you, Daddy. I’m ready now.

Finn: Alright, sweetie. I love you. Go get a hit.

Elizabeth: I wish we could watch our kids’ games all summer long.

Finn: Me, too. Without having to worry about a body in a freezer.

Elizabeth: And no way to get him out without someone seeing us.


Spencer: I seem to be, uh, dripping. Trina, you want to come tell me a little bit about, uh, Ava’s gallery?

Trina: Sure, why not?

Spencer: Right. Excuse us.

Josslyn: Do you think that Spencer is interested in Trina?

Cam: Well, if he is, he’s got a tough hill to climb. She doesn’t seem interested at all.

Josslyn: Yeah, I know. You know, Trina seemed mad at Spencer, which is strange since they’ve never met. But, you know, then again, you don’t really need to know Spencer for very long for him to rub you the wrong way.

Cam: As long as you’re not interested in Spencer, I don’t really care what Trina thinks.

Josslyn: Jealous already? Don’t you know? You were always the guy I wanted the most when we were kids.


Spencer: Trina, I am so sorry about lying to you —

Trina: I’m not interested in your apology, Spencer. I just lied by omission to my best friends because of you. Why would you pretend to be some guy named Victor? And before you lie again, you should know I’m very perceptive. If I suspect you’re being anything less than truthful, I’ll tell Cam and Joss all about how we really met.


Molly: In a perfect world, yeah, Mom would go free.

Nikolas: But this isn’t a perfect world.

Molly: Well, in Mom’s case, her sentence makes sense for the crime that she pled guilty to. I mean, she nearly killed Dante.

TJ: Which she admitted to.

Molly: Yeah. I-I just hope that Mom doesn’t have to go back to Pentonville.

TJ: It sounds like Judge Carson has influence with the deputy warden who’s in a position to make things difficult for Alexis.

Molly: Well, technically speaking, Mom did have an altercation with a guard. But, I mean, you guys know my mom. She’s not a very physical person, so it couldn’t have been much.

TJ: Alexis still got sent to solitary, and not just for a few hours. She was there for three days.

Nikolas: If I can help in any way…

TJ: Well, the thing is, Alexis didn’t go after Judge Carson on her own behalf. She did it for my dad. She was trying to get him out of prison.

Nikolas: Is there — is there a chance that Shawn could be released?


Laura: The governor is going to wait until the investigation reaches a conclusion, and then he’ll take action.

Shawn: But what about Alexis? She shouldn’t have to go back to Pentonville. The deputy warden is definitely biased against her. There’s no other explanation for a three-day sentence in solitary for such a minor infraction.

Alexis: What did the Attorney General say?

Jordan: A lot. Said your sentence is suitable for your crime, meaning you won’t go free. However, you won’t be returning to Pentonville.

Laura: Thank goodness.

Shawn: Well, that’s good news.

Alexis: That depends. Where am I being sent?

Jordan: Spring Ridge.

Alexis: I know that place. That facility’s right outside of Port Charles, and I advocated for my clients to be sent there.

Jordan: Spring Ridge has a low prison population with nonviolent inmates.

Alexis: Lots of opportunity to volunteer there.

Shawn: The guys at Pentonville called it a spa with guards.

Laura: Congratulations, Alexis. You’ll be much more comfortable there.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Laura: Oh. Oh, my goodness. Speak of the devil. It’s the governor. Excuse me.

Shawn: You don’t look very happy.

Alexis: No —

Shawn: I guess a prison is still a prison.

Alexis: I’m — I’m happy, and I’m really grateful. What about you and what about the others like you that were unfairly sentenced by Carson? I actually committed the crime I’m being sentenced for. You didn’t. And I’m benefiting. It’s not fair.


Elizabeth: So, how do we get Peter out now that the Cameras in the stairwell are working?

Finn: Thought we might borrow a gurney and a… body bag from the morgue, get Peter out of the hospital, and dump him in a landfill. Hey, sweetie, you got this!

Elizabeth: Yes, go, Violet, go!

Finn: Alright? Keep your eye on the ball!

Elizabeth: At least in a landfill, his body will decompose quickly.

Finn: Listen to us talking about another human being like this. A human being who I killed.

Elizabeth: Yeah, who deserved to die. You did the world a favor by pushing Peter down the stairs. He can’t terrorize anyone else.

Finn: I’m not sure the authorities are gonna agree with you.

[ Bat hits ball ]

Finn: That’s it!

Elizabeth:  Yes, Violet! Run!

Finn: That’s it! Go! First! Go to first! You got it!

Elizabeth: Run, Violet! Run, run!

Finn: You got it! Yes! Yes! Yes! Keep going!

Elizabeth: [ Laughs ]


Hopkins: I was distracted. I was attempting an unauthorized landing and was taking all kinds of heat for it.

Anna: Male, female? Height, build?

Hopkins: Male, tall.

Valentin: Was he dressed like a hospital employee?

Hopkins: He was dressed in street clothes.

Anna: Okay, what — jeans, t-shirt?

Hopkins: A suit, like… blue or gray. Uh… I thought he was one of you guys.

Anna: A detective? No. What else can you tell us?


Elizabeth: Yay! Good job!

Finn: Yeah! Good one!

Violet: I got the hit.

Finn: I saw. I was watching. Your hit was spectacular,

Violet: I did it just like you showed me.

Finn: Yeah, I know. You kept your bat level, and you kept your eye on the ball, and you ran so fast to first base.

Violet: The running was all me.

Finn: I know it was. But you know what? Game’s still going on. There’s no left fielder. Your teammates need you.

Violet: I’m glad you’re here, Daddy. I got the hit because of you.

Elizabeth: Aw, hey, what am I, chopped liver?

Violet: I’m glad you’re here, too, Aunt Elizabeth. This is my best game ever so far.

Finn: Ooh.

Violet: I love you.

Finn: Oh, I love you, too, sweetheart. I love you to the moon and back. Okay? You go get ’em, alright? Go get a hit.

Elizabeth: Good job, Dad.


Valentin: So, how old was this guy? What color was his hair?

Hopkins: His hair was dark. I’m not sure about his age.

Valentin: Dark. Was it long, short?

Hopkins: Long, ish.

Valentin: In a ponytail?

Hopkins: To his collar maybe.

Valentin: Anything else you could tell us, anything distinctive?

Hopkins: All I remember is that August was with a guy on the hospital roof. That’s it. Can I go home now? Oh, what is this?

Anna: You aided and abetted a murderer.

Hopkins: What are you talking about? I was contracted to fly a client. I didn’t even pick him up! I’ve done nothing!

Valentin: Peter August was implicated in a string of murders. We can prove that you’ve received money to help him escape. That’s a serious offense, certainly one that’s arrestable.

Anna: Okay, thanks, guys.

Hopkins: This is crazy! You got no proof! ‘Cause I did nothing!

Valentin: Do we believe him?

Anna: What, about the other person on the roof? I don’t know why he would make something like that up.

Valentin: I agree with you. But if Peter has another ally aside from the helicopter pilot and the nurse, that’s someone we know nothing about.


Cam: Something to cool us down?

Josslyn: Thank you. Huh. You know, Spencer and Trina seem to have a lot to talk about.

Cam: Yeah, well, Spencer has a lot to talk about with anybody.

Josslyn: Hmm.

Cam: And the only person I want to talk to is you.


Spencer: I honestly didn’t mean to mislead you.

Trina: You have no right to use the word “honestly” in a sentence. And who the hell is Victor anyway?

Spencer: My great uncle.

Trina: And why would you pretend not to know my best friends? And my boss? Why would you pretend not to know Ava?

Spencer: It’s complicated.

Trina: Is this the start of another stall? Don’t bother. Cam and Joss are right over there.

Spencer: Okay. Okay. I lied because I didn’t want my father to know I was back in Port Charles.

Trina: Why not?

Spencer: For three years, he let me believe he was dead. When he resurfaced, I didn’t take it well. And when he married Ava, I didn’t take that well, either.

Trina: Why did you even bother coming back?

Spencer: Because Dad is divorcing Ava. I wanted to show my support, but I wasn’t sure how he’d feel about me, so I laid low for a while.

Trina: He knows you’re back now?

Spencer: And he’s really happy I’m home. If he knew that I waited a few days before seeing him, it could destroy all of the progress that we’ve made towards fixing our relationship.


Molly: Shawn only pled guilty because he thought he shot Hayden Barnes. But he didn’t. Hayden was shot by someone else. No one knows who. Shawn was literally in the wrong place at the wrong time.

TJ: Diane miller plans to assemble a legal team to have Hayden Barnes’ shooting reopened and prove my dad wasn’t responsible. But my dad keeps telling me it’s going to take time. A lot of time. So we shouldn’t get our hopes up.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Molly: Or maybe we should.


Alexis: Thank you for letting me text Molly the news.

Jordan: Yeah.

Shawn: You just made her night out with TJ even sweeter.

Jordan: Well, let’s hope the next text is to TJ from Shawn.

Shawn: That won’t be for a while.

Laura: I wouldn’t be so sure about that.

Jordan: The governor?

Laura: Yes. The national press picked up the story about Judge Carson and her biased sentencing.

Alexis: I’m sure the governor was thrilled about that.

Laura: That’s why he was calling me. He told me he was going to make Shawn’s case his priority.

Alexis: Uh, w-what does that mean? A priority in politics, is that five years instead of five days.

Laura: Let me finish.

Shawn: Remember what I said about patience.

Jordan: Oh, I’m with Alexis. What did the governor say about Shawn?


Anna: What makes you think that this person on the roof with Peter is an ally?

Valentin: Okay, that’s interesting. Well, the hospital was searched from top to bottom. Everybody that was there the day that Peter escaped has been interviewed, so if this man isn’t an ally, why hasn’t he come forward?

Anna: Okay. So who is this person?

Valentin: I don’t know. Could be anybody. Could be affiliated with the hospital. Maybe not. But this man did meet Peter on the roof. Peter is Faison’s son. He has access to any number of support personnel. Could be a courier. Or maybe he was the one facilitating Peter’s escape.

Anna: Then why bother with Hopkins?


Finn: That’s it, Violet. Keep your eye on the batter. That’s it, sweetheart.

[ Bat hits ball ]

Finn: The thought that someone could have seen what happened with Peter keeps me up at night.

Elizabeth: If someone had seen you, they would have come forward by now. Yes, Violet, you got this!

Finn: You know, Anna could find a witness that the police missed. And if Peter’s body is discovered and traced back to me… it’d be devastating to Violet. I’ve — I’ve tried really hard to provide her with a sense of security and stability. Her mom’s been off the radar for a year and a half now.

Elizabeth: I still can’t believe that Hayden would voluntarily abandon Violet for so long. Finn… if something were to happen, if — if you were to get arrested, I want you to know that the boys and I would take care of Violet.

Finn: Thank you. Thank you. But what if someone saw you helping me hide Peter’s body?

Elizabeth: If they did, then why haven’t they said something? We just have to have faith that we’re in the clear. We can continue on with our lives and not let Peter take that away from us.


Laura: I saved the best for last. The governor has decided to commute your sentence to time served.

Shawn: Okay. W-what’s the catch? Uh, how long will the paperwork take?

Jordan: I mean, it can take weeks, sometimes months.

Laura: But in this case, the paperwork has already been handled. So effective immediately, you’re a free man!

Alexis: Oh. Oh! Oh! Gosh!

Shawn: [ Laughter ]


TJ: Congratulations, Mols.

Nikolas: I think we should order another bottle of Champagne to celebrate Alexis’ move out from Pentonville.

Molly: Well, I’m only sorry that her text didn’t include any news about your dad.

TJ:  My dad should have never been denied parole when it came up a few months ago. They said he was a model prisoner.

Molly: TJ and I were convinced that Shawn would be out in time to see TJ graduate from med school.


Spencer: Is there any chance that you can forgive me for lying to you?

Trina: For a while, I wasn’t talking to my dad. And when I finally did, it felt really good.

Spencer: So you understand why I didn’t tell him that I was back in Port Charles at first?

Trina: I get the anger. But do you really work at the Savoy?

Spencer: Um… no.

Trina: Then why were you there the night of my graduation party?

Spencer: I was thinking of telling Cam and Joss that I was back in town. But then when you came in all bloody and stuff, I realized that the timing wasn’t right.

Trina: Why did you pretend not to know Ava?

Spencer: Ava couldn’t know about my return, either. She would’ve told my dad.

Trina: And your mom?

Spencer: I would never lie about her. Ask Cam and Joss. Better yet, look her up online. Courtney Matthews. She died the day I was born.

Trina: I’m sorry. I just don’t know what to believe about you anymore.

Spencer: I get it. I do. And I’m really sorry. And if you want to tell Ava and Cam and Joss that I pretended to be some guy named Victor, I’ll understand.

Trina: But you don’t want me to, do you? You want me to trust you.

Josslyn: Okay, what’s going on? You two have been in intense conversation forever.


Jordan:  Hey. Mm.

Shawn: Thank you. I know you did a lot to convince the governor to commute my sentence, but what about all the other inmates of color Carson handed unfair sentences to?

Laura: Don’t worry, the governor is going to speed up the process of reviewing all of the sentencing. Uh, it’s going to be a long road. But I’m very glad it began with you.

Alexis: You are amazing. Did you promise the governor your firstborn son?

Laura: [ Chuckles ] No, I merely pointed out that his poll numbers might slip if he didn’t correct this horrible injustice. He is coming up for election.

Jordan: Mm. Finally, a politically savvy move that also achieves justice.

Alexis: You deserve this. You have been a model prisoner. You — you’ve been a rock star with the other inmates. And god knows you saved my life and my sanity.

Shawn: And you saved mine. Now I need to call TJ.

Jordan: Wait, wait, wait. I have a better idea.


Trina: Spencer and I were just talking about…art. He’s really interested in my job at Ava’s gallery.

Cam: Mm. I could see the movie title now — “Spencer Cassadine, Man of the World.”

Spencer: And I can see yours — sorry. What are your interests, besides Josslyn?

Cam: Mm, that’s — that’s funny. Mm. On that note, I think I’m going to head out. Can’t be late for work.

Josslyn: Yeah, I have a P.T. appointment. I have to work on my ankle. Um, can I give you a ride?

Trina: Thanks, but I think I’ll stick around.

Cam: Mm, have more to talk to Spencer about art?

Josslyn: Uh, call me later.

Cam: Welcome back. It’s good to see you.

Spencer: Thanks for keeping my secret.

Trina: I’m just glad you and your dad are talking again. But so we’re clear, lie to me again, and I’m out, and so’s your secret.


TJ: I suppose if there were good news about my dad, I would have heard by now.

Molly: I’m sorry.

Nikolas:  So am I. I have some calls to make, so I’m going to say goodbye. Enjoy your night out.

Molly: Well, thank you for the champagne and the good wishes.

Nikolas:  Least I can do.

TJ: I don’t believe it. What?

TJ: You’re out.

Shawn:  A free man.

[ Both laugh ]

Shawn:  It’s good to see you. Good to see you.

TJ: [ Laughs ]


Alexis: Mmm. Compared to the swill they serve in Pentonville, you have — have no idea. This tastes like the perfect café au lait from a sidewalk cafe in Paris.

Laura: [ Chuckles ] I’m sorry things have been so hard on you.

Alexis: Oh, Laura, you have no idea.

Laura: Mm.

Alexis: I cannot thank you enough for intervening in Shawn’s case.

Laura: Oh, please. It was you and Molly and — and Martin did all the heavy lifting.

Alexis: And Nikola– Nikolas gets credit for an assist, because he saved me from Cyrus Renault’s people. And I don’t even know how to thank him.

Laura: Mm. Well, his methods were dubious, but it was for a worthy cause.

Alexis: You have to admit, Nikolas has really redeemed himself.

Laura: [ Sighs ] It’s a huge relief to be able to recognize my own son again. I only wish that he and Ava didn’t have to deal with this stalker in their life. But anyway, you’re right. You’re right. My son has turned into the good man that I always knew he was.


Nikolas: Congratulations on the release, Shawn. Well-deserved.

Shawn: Thank you. Yeah, freedom feels good.

Jordan:  Well, what’s the first thing you’re going to do to celebrate?

TJ: Champagne?

Molly: Ooh, the Metro Court’s filet mignon?

Shawn: I wouldn’t say no to either, but my focus will be to repay my debt to Hayden Barnes. Someone tried to kill her, and they came damn close. I’m going to find out who.


Finn: Hey!

Violet: I caught the ball!

Finn: I saw! You won the game for your team! I’m so proud of you.

Elizabeth: Your cousins will be so impressed.

Violet: Can I go celebrate with my team and coach?

Finn: Of course, sweetheart. I’m gonna be right here. Okay? That’s the most important thing in the world to me. I owe her love and security. I owe her everything. And for her sake, I’m going to keep going. It’s not fair to ask you to —

Elizabeth: Finn, I’m not going anywhere. We’ll deal with this together.


Anna: If Peter had someone waiting to transport him, why would he book a helicopter to fly him out of there?

Valentin: Diversion? Contingency plan?

Anna: No, no, no, no, ’cause why would he go to the roof if he wasn’t going to board the helicopter?

Valentin: Well, Peter’s walls were coming in. He’d killed Franco. He’d arranged for Maxie’s abduction, his child to disappear. He needed to get out of G.H. He needed to disappear himself. But if Peter’s helicopter couldn’t land, then that just leaves our mystery man on the roof.

Anna: Yeah, you’re right. No, that person’s very important. But there’s something that we’re — we’re — we’re not seeing clearly. You know? Something doesn’t add up.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Chase (to Willow): I can’t be your husband.

Britt: It’s so good to see you!

Nikolas (to Jordan): Can you be more specific?

Terry (to Portia): The only place to be is at the Savoy.

Ava (to Trina): How’s the new guy?

Curtis (to Johnny): You gotta say what you want even if you might lose what you have.

Sasha (to Michael): I’m just not sure I want him to be.

Stella (to Shawn): Get out of my way.

Josslyn and Trina at the Metro Court pool

Best Lines provided by Suzanne

Valentin:  We’re hanging in an Irish bar. I’m not drinking a domestic beer.

Anna: Oh, god. Is it warm?

Valentin: Oh, yeah.


Deanna: I can’t decide who she looks like — you or Mr. Cassadine.

Brook Lynn: You know babies. One minute they look just like you, and the next they’re a dead ringer for Winston Churchill.


Josslyn: Was that your mystery man?

Trina: Don’t know why I gave that guy my number. I guess I felt sorry for him.

Josslyn: Oh? And what did he do to deserve your pity?

Trina: It’s not pity. Victor — he grew up without a mom. There’s something lost and lonely about him.

Josslyn: You like him.

Trina: Yeah. Same way I like stray puppies.


Brook Lynn: Oh, you just figured because you claim to be my family, which, by the way, we’ve heard a thousand times before, that somehow my business is now your business?

Austin: Really?

Brook Lynn: Okay, well, it isn’t. Maxie and I were just talking, so you can run along. Shoo. Don’t let my footwear hit you in the butt on the way out.


Josslyn: So, tell me more about Victor.

Trina: Uh, he’s excessively fond of the park.


Hopkins: Let me take a shot. Mm… you’re from London.

Anna: Oh, wow, you’re good. For an American.


Maxie: Oh, don’t tell me you’re a Quartermaine.

Austin: Guilty as charged.

Maxie: Oh, first thing you need to know about that family — never admit guilt unless you already know you’re getting away with it.

Austin: Getting away with what?

Maxie: Mm, doesn’t matter.

Maxie: Well, um, good luck with the Quartermaines. I really wish I could be around to see the fireworks.


Austin: That might be the case. Bye, cuz. I’ll see you when I see you. Unless you see me first.


Josslyn: So you’re not mad.

Trina: Why would I be mad that my two best friends finally wised up and realized that they’re meant to be together?

Josslyn: Well, because for a while, you and Cam —

Trina: Joss, please. That is so high school. We’ve matured since then. We’re four years away from being college graduates.

Josslyn: So you’re genuinely happy for me and Cam?

Trina: I’m happy for Cam. I feel nothing but pity for you.


[ Both chuckle ]

Cameron: Hey, so I got us some Shirley Temples. We can get sodas anywhere, so… a-are we good here?

[ Both laugh ]


Brook Lynn: And we all were quite shocked when he made his big announcement… except Monica. I swear, that woman, she has ice in her veins.

Maxie: Okay, well, can she give me a transfusion? ‘Cause I’m kind of freaking out right now that Austin’s gonna recognize you from that night in the woods.


Ava: I’m mortified. F-f-for the other night.

Austin: Oh, don’t be. No, it was fun.

Ava: It was fun?

Austin: Yeah, it was fun. I’m from a small town. It’s quiet. Not much happens in Pautuck. For me to be a-a part of a public matrimonial drama, that’s a big night out. [ Chuckles ] It’s like diving in the deep end.

Ava: Mm, off the deep end, I think.


[ Both laugh ]

Austin: So, how are things with you two?

Ava: Divorce. We’re — we’re getting divorced.

Austin: Sorry to hear that. Some differences are irreconcilable.

Ava: Actually, it’s a matter of life and death.


Spencer: It seems like your wife has found a friend.

Nikolas: I don’t know. Last time I saw her with that guy —

Spencer: This isn’t the first time? Interesting.

Nikolas: Spencer, don’t.

Spencer: Don’t what? State the obvious.

Nikolas: Don’t try to stir things up.

Spencer: Sorry. Old habits. Ah, speaking of which, you should kick this one.


Cameron: So, you told her.

Josslyn: Oh, she already knew. Apparently, we were the only ones who didn’t.

Trina: Don’t think this changes anything, Cam. Sisters before misters always. Capiche?


Cameron: Hey, do you need more sunblock?

Josslyn: Oh, uh, yeah, actually. I can feel myself starting to roast.

Cameron: Do you want me to…?

Josslyn: Oh, please. Yeah.

Spencer: Watch the hands, townie.

Our Opinions

5 Reasons why Sonny and Nina in Nixon Falls Is a Good Story By Suzanne

I just started watching the show again after an absence of a few years. It’s not that I intentionally stopped watching…I just watch a lot of TV and fell behind. I was slowly, ever so slowly, catching up, but I’m still back in 2018. I’ve decided to try to watch the new ones so that I can edit our daily GH Transcripts and write some of the GH Updates while our regular writer Anthony catches up on past episodes. He’s behind, too. It’s so easy to fall behind in these busy times.  The pandemic slowed some people down, but for those of us who worked at home (as well as essential workers and others), we never slowed down.

Even though I haven’t watched many episodes in the past 3 years, I do still regularly read the GH news and spoilers, and I read other fans’ posts about it on Twitter and Facebook, so I know what’s been going on.

I know that a lot of fans are not happy with the fact that Sonny has been stuck in a small town with amnesia, away from his friends and family (who think he’s dead).  It’s not usually a good idea to stick one or two characters off on their own for too long because the fun of a soap is seeing everyone in the cast interact.  I’m not saying I’m a huge fan of Nina and Sonny’s “romance,” but here are a few good reasons to have this story.

#1 It keeps Maurice Benard happy. He’s the star of the show, as we were reminded recently when the shows EP said it. He obviously wanted to do something different than playing the same mob boss every day. It’s good to keep him happy so he doesn’t decide to retire. I know that not everyone loves him, but he’s very popular, so I do believe the show would suffer without him.  Even though they had to create a different town and set of characters, I give them props for doing a pretty good job of it. Lenny and Phyllis are very likable.  Maybe Maurice just got tired of wearing suits every day….he might be enjoying wearing those blue collar shirts. 😉

#2 It was a good choice for the Cyrus storyline because getting Sonny out of the way created a lot of problems for the other people in Port Charles, and they had to band together to get rid of him.

#3 It’s forcing Jason and Carly together. Now, most of us don’t really want to see them in a romantic relationship at this point. It’s been too long since they were together (1996, to be exact). They’re great friends, and they shouldn’t screw that up. I believe the writers are only putting them together to create more conflict for Jason and Britt (not to mention, Jason and Sam) as well as making it worse for Sonny’s eventual return. Hopefully, Jason and Carly won’t actually sleep together. Thank goodness she’s too old to get pregnant, too. Well, never say never in Soap Land…

#4 Having one of the characters leave town, lose their memory, and then everyone thinks he’s dead… that’s a soap trope by now. In fact, Sonny did something similar years ago when he was stabbed and nursed back to health by Angel (who was really boring). Micky Horton on Days did it way back in 1973.  Victor on Y&R has done it a few times. It happened to Tad on All My Children, too. Those story memories are just off the top of my head, so I’m sure there are many more examples.

#5 The eventual reveal will be great – when Sonny gets his memory back and finds out that Nina kept his existence a secret from his family. I’m sure Carly will have a few slaps to give, too. With a real mobster, Nina would be dead from that kind of thing, but Sonny rarely kills anyone, so most likely Nina will just be persona non grata for a while around Port Charles. It would be really great if Sonny just forgave her because he still loves her, but I’m not going to hold my breath. Will Jason and Carly be sleeping together by then? Maybe. There will be a long list of people just waiting to yell at Nina (or worse).

The only thing I don’t like about this story is that Nina is the perpetual victim. She always makes the worst choices when it comes to love: Valentin, Franco, Jax and now a married mobster. Soap characters often have these problems, but hers seem to be worst than most.  She was in a coma for 12 years because her evil mother put her there to steal her money, and she stole her baby, too. She can’t have more children, and the one she did have was dead by the time she learned about her.

It’s not only too sad to have her go through so many horrible love affairs, but it makes her look really dumb to keep making such poor decisions.  This time it’s not just her romantic heart on the line, but she’ll probably also have a hard time getting permission to see grandson Wiley again, too. It’s great for Cynthia Watros because she’s outstanding in the role, but I just wish that Nina would have a nice, fun fling once in a while.

Most people hate change, but life – and daytime drama – is all about change. Fans want their favorite couples to stay together forever, and that’s just not what these shows are about. I can’t wait for the fireworks when Nina is found out!

GH Update Monday, July 19, 2021

General Hospital Updates

Update written by Suzanne

Sonny phones Nina to let her know that he’s at a New York hospital with Lenny and Phyllis. They need her because Lenny has a tumor. She panics at first when he says “New York,” worried that he might be in Port Charles. She is shocked to hear about Lenny and immediately offers to help out. He tells her they’re going back to Nixon Falls, so she’ll meet them there and help Lenny pay for any cancer treatments he might need. Sonny tells her that he misses her. Nina is spending time with Wiley but tells Willow that she has to leave for a while to help her friends. She wonders if Willow and Chase might want to have more children, but Willow admits they haven’t really talked about it. When Nina mentions Mike, Willow says she hopes to meet him one day. Nina tells her that Wiley is the only man in her life right now.

Lenny and Phyllis sit in the waiting room at the hospital and reminisce about their first meeting, when he was finishing. Sonny arrives and lets them know that Nina will be meeting them and that she’ll pay for any treatment Lenny needs. He objects, but Sonny tells him that they owe him a lot, and his life and health are more important than his pride. Sonny’s voice breaks when he pledges that they’ll fight the cancer together. Lenny gets called in to see the doctor, so Sonny consoles Phyllis.

Valentin and Anna hang out at Ryan’s Bar (ha!), waiting for the helicopter pilot that supposedly helped Peter escape with Maxie’s baby. The man comes in, so Anna goes over and makes small talk with him. He starts talking about his dead sister, but then he realizes that Anna is a bit too interested. He tries to get rough with her, but Valentin slams him down on the bar. They question him about what happened. He tells them that he never picked up Peter because he couldn’t get close enough to the roof of General Hospital. Anna wonders where Peter went, then.

Brook Lynn takes baby Louise/Bailey to GH to get a checkup. She’s arranged for Maxie to casually run into them as well, so she she can say goodbye to her daughter. Austin walks up to say hi, but Brook Lynn tells him to go away. She’s suspicious that he’s not really a Quartermaine. He seems mildly amused at her attitude. While Brook Lynn takes the baby in to the doctor, Maxie asks Austin about his background. He tells her that his parents were Jimmy Lee Holt and Charity Gatlin. She knows all about them from reading Lucy Coe’s book, and Edward’s unauthorized biography. Austin is surprised to hear that Maxie is leaving town, so she confides that being around little Bailey when she misses her own daughter has been too difficult for her. When Brook Lynn returns, Maxie demands to know why she didn’t tell her that Austin was her cousin. She’s worried that he’ll remember that her baby didn’t get kidnapped, but Brook Lynn assures her that he won’t. In a sad scene, Maxie says goodbye to Louise.

Meanwhile, Nikolas and Spencer are chatting at a table at the Metro Court about Cassadine Industries. Nikolas sees Ava and takes her aside to tell her that the fastest divorce they can get is a “no fault divorce,” which will take two weeks. She’s not happy to hear that it will take that long, and she’s worried about Avery. Nikolas gets a little suspicious when Spencer mentions a detail about Ava’s stalker. Spencer tells him that it was posted by someone on social media. Spencer keeps needling Nikolas about Ava.

Ava and Austin run into each other at the Metro Court bar and catch up. She tells him that she and Nikolas are getting divorced. He’s sympathetic. He can tell that she and Nikolas are pretending to ignore each other but still keep looking over at each other. She tells him about the stalker and about why Avery is with Carly. He says it’s a shame whenever parents are separated from their child. When he inadvertently mentions Maxie losing her child (in comparison to Ava being away from Avery), she gets a bit annoyed, saying it’s not the same thing.

Josslyn and Trina are hanging out at the Metro Court pool. Trina just got off the phone with Spencer, whom she knows only as Victor. She has sympathy for him because he grew up without a mom. Josslyn tells her that she and Cam kissed on the Fourth of July. Trina tells her that she could tell they were together, but she’s not mad because she’s no longer interested in Cam. Josslyn is relieved. Cam was with the girls but then went to get drinks so they could chat. After he comes back, he’s rubbing lotion on Josslyn’s back when Spencer arrives, calling him a “townie,” like old times. They’re shocked when they look up to see that Spencer has grown so tall.

General Hospital Transcript

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Sonny: I know you’re busy. I didn’t mean to bother you. I just — I didn’t really want to make this call.

Nina:  Mike, what’s wrong?

Sonny: We need you. Lenny, Phyllis, and me. Is there any way you can come home?

Nina:  I don’t understand. What’s going on?

Sonny: I promised Lenny back in Nixon Falls that I wasn’t gonna say anything.

Nina:  Wait, back in Nixon Falls? Where are you?

Sonny: We’re all in New York.

Nina:  New York?


Valentin: Thank you.  We’re hanging in an Irish bar. I’m not drinking a domestic beer.

Anna: Oh, god. Is it warm?

Valentin: Oh, yeah.

Anna: [ Scoffs ] Did you get anything else from the bartender?

Valentin: That the nurse at New York Methodist is right. The medevac pilot, he’s a regular here.

Anna: Okay. So when he gets here —

Valentin: I know, I know. Subtle. It’s your show.

Anna: Yes. It is. Because right now, this — this could be the way to track Peter down and maybe find Maxie’s baby.


Brook Lynn: Hi, Deanna. Bailey and I are here for her checkup.

Deanna: Why, hello, Bailey.

Brook Lynn: [ Chuckles ]

Deanna: Are you extra pretty today? [ Chuckles ] I can’t decide who she looks like — you or Mr. Cassadine.

Brook Lynn: You know babies. One minute they look just like you, and the next they’re a dead ringer for Winston Churchill.

Deanna: I’ll see if the doctors are ready for you.

Brook Lynn: Great. Thanks.

Maxie: Brook Lynn.

Brook Lynn: Uh, what are you doing here?

Maxie: I hope everything’s okay with Bailey.

Brook Lynn: Oh, yeah, just a checkup. Look who’s here, Bailey.

Maxie: Thank you for arranging this meet-up.

Brook Lynn: Yeah, of course. You said it was your last chance to see her before you have to leave. And with Monica working from home, today was our best shot.

Maxie: Oh, yeah. The last thing I need is another gentle conversation with Monica about my fixation on “your” baby.

Austin: As I live and breathe. What are you two up to?


Josslyn: Was that your mystery man?

Trina: Don’t know why I gave that guy my number. I guess I felt sorry for him.

Josslyn: Oh? And what did he do to deserve your pity?

Trina: It’s not pity. Victor — he grew up without a mom. There’s something lost and lonely about him.

Josslyn: You like him.

Trina: Yeah. Same way I like stray puppies.


Nikolas: So, anyway, that is what’s happening with Cassadine industries. Are you sure this isn’t boring?

Spencer: I find it all fascinating. I especially love seeing you back in charge.

Nikolas: I’m flattered, but I have to ask, shouldn’t you be spending time with friends?

Spencer: I plan to, but right now, there’s no place I’d rather be.

Nikolas: Back at you, son. I feel exactly the same way.

Spencer: Even if it means your wife isn’t part of it?


Nina: Uh, wait, where in New York?

Sonny: Uh, somewhere in Manhattan. New York Methodist hospital. Lenny is sick.

Nina: Oh, no. How sick?

Sonny: It’s bad. He, uh… he doesn’t have much time. He needs you. I need you.


Brook Lynn: How is what we’re doing any of your business?

Maxie: Brook Lynn!

Austin: I was just —

Brook Lynn: Oh, you just figured because you claim to be my family, which, by the way, we’ve heard a thousand times before, that somehow my business is now your business?

Austin: Really?

Brook Lynn: Okay, well, it isn’t. Maxie and I were just talking, so you can run along. Shoo. Don’t let my footwear hit you in the butt on the way out.

Austin: How’s my former patient?

Deanna: The doctor is ready to see Bailey.

Brook Lynn: Thanks, Deanna. Excuse me. Private family business.

Maxie: Um, so you and Brook Lynn are related? How did I miss that?

Austin: I don’t even know where to begin.

Maxie: How about why you left your cozy country practice to join the staff here? Let’s start there.

Austin: Okay, well… Maxie, you of all people know just how quickly life can change.


Josslyn: So, tell me more about Victor.

Trina: Uh, he’s excessively fond of the park. How about you tell me what I missed on the Fourth after I took off?

Josslyn: You’re deflecting.

Trina: You’re right. I am. Glad you got that. Did you and cam do anything besides stay and watch the fireworks?

Josslyn: Actually, I’ve been waiting for the right moment to tell you.

Trina: Tell me what? Please, no. “Please, no” what? Please, no you and Cam. Don’t tell me you guys are at it again.


Nikolas: Ava, join us, please.

Ava: No, no, I don’t — I don’t want to intrude. Besides, we’ve — we’ve said everything that we need to say at Wyndemere.

Nikolas: T-that’s not quite true. I have something to tell you that’s gonna affect us and our future.


Sonny: So, what happened was we came here, um, for a second opinion on Lenny’s heart. And… instead, they found a tumor.

Nina: A tumor? Well, I wish I would have known. I would have dropped everything to be there.

Sonny: That’s why Lenny didn’t want me to tell you, ’cause he didn’t, you know, want to interrupt you with your grandson.

Nina: Well, as it happens, I’m with him right now. And his mother.

Sonny: As you should be. I’m gonna let you go, okay?

Nina: No, no, Mike, she’s helping Wiley get ready. I have a lot of time. I can talk to you.

Sonny: Nina, listen, there’s one thing I need to ask you, and I hate to ask you, and I know Lenny would hate that I’m asking you.

Nina: Well, you don’t need to ask. Cancer treatments cost a fortune. I would love to help.


Anna: Okay, so if our Mr. Hopkins makes a move, or he heads for the exit —

Valentin: He’s not getting past me.

Anna: Yes, but subtle. He’s — oh, I think we’re a go.

Hopkins: The usual. Thank you.

Anna: Oh, I just don’t have any bars in here at all. It’s like — do you have service? Hmm.

Hopkins: Let me take a shot. Mm… you’re from London.

Anna: Oh, wow, you’re good. For an American.


Maxie: I was surprised to learn that you had moved to Port Charles. You seemed so at home in Pautuck where you delivered my baby in the woods. Thank you again for that.

Austin: Oh, right time, right place. Just wish I could have been able to stop whoever took your baby. Any word about little Louise?

Maxie: No, not yet. Um, anyway, we were talking about you. No evading this time. How exactly are you related to Brook Lynn?

Austin: She’s my cousin.

Maxie: Oh, don’t tell me you’re a Quartermaine.

Austin: Guilty as charged.

Maxie: Oh, first thing you need to know about that family — never admit guilt unless you already know you’re getting away with it.

Austin: Getting away with what?

Maxie: Mm, doesn’t matter. So back to how you’re related to Brook Lynn.

Austin:  My full name is Austin Gatlin-Holt. My mother was Charity Gatlin.

Maxie: Oh, that — what? That makes your father Jimmy Lee Holt, one of Edward Quartermaine’s illegitimate children.

Austin: How’d you know that?

Maxie: It’s all in Lucy Coe’s book, “The Travel Guide to Port Charles.”

Austin: [ Chuckles ] That’s a thing?

Maxie: Yeah, you can buy it online.

Austin: Oh.

Maxie: It’s also in Edward’s unauthorized biography. So, how are your parents, anyway?

Austin: Well, my father died about six months ago.

Maxie: Oh, my god. I’m so sorry. Wait, so is that why you’re here in Port Charles? To connect with your family?

Austin: Yeah. Why? You thought I was here for some other reason?


Cameron: Hey, guys. Am I butting in on some girl talk?

Josslyn: Oh, no, actually, Trina and i were just talking about the Fourth of July.

Cameron: Best day ever.

Trina: The Fourth? Really? Not birthdays or Christmas?

Cameron: What about them?


Nikolas: Spencer, would you excuse us for a moment?

Spencer: Gladly. Whatever the two of you need to, um…

Nikolas: Stay put. I-I won’t be long. I’ve spoken to Martin. He’s suggesting something called a “no-fault divorce.”

Ava: Okay. What do we have to do?

Nikolas: Both parties have to agree that our marriage has “broken down irrevocably” for at least six months.

Ava: And you’ll agree to that?

Nikolas: If that’s what you want. But it will take at least six weeks to be finalized.

Ava: Six weeks?

Nikolas: It’s the quickest option we have.

Ava: No, I — it’s just that the stalker can do a lot of damage in six weeks.

Nikolas: I’ll make sure that the bodyguard is ever present and out of sight, just like he is today.

Ava: What about Avery?

Nikolas: Avery is safe with Carly.

Ava: For another six weeks. But okay. A no-fault divorce it is. And the sooner our lawyers get started on it, the better for everyone.


Lenny: I was fishing in the river.

Phyllis: I remember.

Lenny: When my line got tangled.

Phyllis: You were so mad.

Lenny: And I lost the flathead I’d been trying to catch. And then I heard you laughing.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Because it was funny.

Lenny: Not to me, it wasn’t.

Phyllis: I could see that, too.

Lenny: I was about to give whoever was laughing what for. Then I looked and saw you.

Phyllis: Mm, and you forgot about that fish.

Lenny: Now, you know that’s not how this story goes.

[ Both laugh ]

Phyllis: I would like it to go that way just once.

Lenny: The story is not as good if I’m not mad at you about rooting for the fish.

Phyllis: You got a point there.

Lenny: And why were you rooting for the fish?

Phyllis: Because I always root for the underdog.

Lenny: I was the underdog. That fish had the upper hand, and it doesn’t even have hands.

Phyllis: When I asked what you’re gonna do when you caught that fish, you said “bring him in, weigh him, throw him back, and catch him again.” That’s how I knew you had respect for life and much more patience than anyone could ever guess.

Lenny: Don’t tell anybody.

Phyllis: Your secret’s safe with me.

Lenny: [ Chuckles ]


Anna: So, I-I’m new in town, you know — oh, thank you. Big Apple. [ Chuckles ] Does anybody call it that anymore?

Hopkins: No.

Anna: No, I didn’t think so. Can be quite intimidating, you know. I mean, unless you have somebody that can, uh, show you the ropes.

Hopkins: You get used to it.

Anna: Are you a newcomer as well?

Hopkins: You could say that.

Anna: Oh, something that we have in common. So, what brought you here? Um…a job, a-a new life? Trying to reinvent yourself?

Hopkins: Trying to forget.

Anna: Ah. A woman.

Hopkins: Sort of. My sister. She’s, uh… she’s dead.

Anna: I’m sorry.

Hopkins: Thanks.

Anna: Well, I guess… something else we have in common. My sister died recently as well.


Sonny: Thanks, Nina. I-I knew you’d want to help.

Nina: Of course I want to help. Thank you for asking me.

Sonny: Now we just got to convince Lenny and Phyllis to accept.

Nina: Yeah. Yeah. Well, this is Lenny’s life that we are talking about. Of course I would always help. And pride be damned. After all the kindness that Phyllis and Lenny have shown me, I want to do something for them in return.

Sonny: They’ll be very happy, eventually.

Nina: Well, you’re just gonna have to convince them.

Sonny: After they give me hell for calling you in the first place.

[ Both laugh ]

Nina: So I could probably get a plane ticket to New York tonight.

Sonny: No, you don’t have to do that ’cause we’re heading — we’re heading home tomorrow.

Nina: Okay, great. Well, then I’ll see you in Nixon Falls tomorrow. In the meantime, if there is anything else that you need…

Sonny: Just you. I mean, you know what I mean.

Nina: No. I know what you mean, Mike. I miss you, too.

Willow: Somebody can’t wait to hit the water.


Nina: Just — just one second, okay?

Willow: Take your time. We’ll be outside.

Nina: No, uh, you don’t have to — you don’t have to go anywhere. Just one second, okay? Um, hey, I-I should run. The man of my dreams just walked in.

Sonny: Competition, huh? I know who’s gonna win this round. I’ll see you later.

Nina: Yeah, just give Phyllis and Lenny my love, okay? And, um, remember, don’t take no for an answer.

Sonny: Done and done.

Nina: Goodbye.

Willow: Sorry for interrupting.

Nina: Are you kidding? Your timing — it was perfect. It was perfect. Hey, Wiley. May I?

Willow: Yeah.

Nina: Wiley is just the medicine that I need. How are you, my man? I am so blessed to have you in my life.

Willow: Nina, what’s wrong? Bad news or…?

Nina: It’s, um — I found out a friend of mine is — is sick. And so just when Wiley and i are getting to know each other again… …I’m gonna have to leave him.


Maxie: Well, um, good luck with the Quartermaines. I really wish I could be around to see the fireworks.

Austin: Why won’t you be around? You going someplace?

Maxie: It’s been difficult to see Brook Lynn with her baby. She’s been very nice about it and has been letting me spend time with Bailey. We both thought it would help, but —

Austin: But every time you see Bailey, you see Louise.

Maxie: You have no idea. Hey, how was Bailey’s checkup?

Brook Lynn: My little angel passed with flying colors. So, did I miss anything?

Austin: Just tragedy. Miss Maxie’s leaving as soon as I’m getting settled into town. Best of luck.

Maxie: Yeah, you too. I think maybe you’ll need it more than I will.

Austin: That might be the case. Bye, cuz. I’ll see you when I see you. Unless you see me first.

Brook Lynn: Okay, spill. What does he know?

Maxie: More than I do. How come you didn’t tell me he was your cousin?


Trina: You know what would be totally fun and awesome to do right now?

Cameron: Go for a dip in the pool?

Josslyn: Yeah, I’m in.

Trina: No, this is even better. Let’s look at our classes.

Josslyn: Right now?

Cameron: I mean, we have all summer to do that, Trina. The pool, it’s like —

Trina: Is the pool going anywhere, Cam?

Cameron: Well, no.

Trina: But we are. To PCU. Oh, did you know that you can shop for your classes? Sit in on whatever you like, and then decide whether you want to take it or not? Isn’t that wild?

Josslyn: Yeah.

Trina: Like this humanities program. It says here this course presents readings from various countries and cultures. And I think we could all agree we could all use more exposure to other people. Or have you guys already decided what you want?

Cameron: Pretty much.

Josslyn: Cam, could you, uh, go get us something from the bar?

Cameron: Sure.

Josslyn: Thanks.

Trina: Well?

Josslyn: Do you remember when we vowed to never, ever let a boy come in between us?

Trina: Yeah, I remember. Why?

Josslyn: Well, first off, I need you to trust me when I tell you that that is still true.


Ava: Spencer is looking a little antsy. You shouldn’t keep him waiting any longer. Thank you for the update. And… just have Martin call Scott, okay?

Nikolas: Ava.

Ava: Broken down irrevocably. Remember?

Spencer: I’m sorry this is upsetting you, but maybe it’s better this way.

Nikolas: Better how?

Spencer: Ava might not be my favorite person, but if someone is trying to freak her out with something like a cockroach in Plexiglas…

Nikolas: How do you know about that?


Anna: What was your sister’s name?

Hopkins: Marie. My baby sister. Just a few years younger than me. Such a beautiful girl. And so smart. Too smart for her own good.

Anna: How so?

Hopkins: She was a risk-taker. Could… get herself into trouble. This time, she died doing the right thing, trying to save a baby.

Anna: Oh. She was a hero, then.

Hopkins: Mother was trying to run off with the kid, keep her from the dad. What kind of person does that?

Anna: I don’t know. So your sister, she rescued this baby from the mother and… what, gave her to the father?

Hopkins: Well, like I said, she tried, but… never got the chance. She fell, literally fell into a hole and… wait a second. What’s it to you?

Anna: Nothing. I’m just lending an ear.

Hopkins: No. Something’s going on here. Who the hell are you?


Sonny: Can I come in?

Lenny: Of course.

Phyllis: We’ve been wondering where you’ve been.

Sonny: Well, I just — I talked to the doctor and I told them to get started while I talked to you. We need to get a-a jump on fighting this thing.

Lenny: Well, thanks for taking charge, but —

Phyllis: But there’s no way we can afford it.

Sonny: Now, listen. You don’t have to worry about that. We — we got this.

Lenny: Who’s “we”?

Phyllis: You called Nina, didn’t you?


Wiley: [ Speaks indistinctly ]

Nina: Yeah, my friend in Nixon Falls. Not the one I was talking to, but another friend, he was just diagnosed with cancer.

Willow: Oh, my god.

Nina: Yeah, and if they don’t throw everything at it, then…

Willow: Of course you’d want to go to them. Look, Wiley will be disappointed about missing your pool date, but if you have to go —

Nina: No, no, no. I don’t have to miss the pool day. I-I want to spend as much time as I possibly can with this little guy. Mike is gonna take care of things on their end, and he’s gonna keep me posted.

Willow: I think I like this Mike person.

Wiley: Look at this red thing.

Willow: Yeah, look at that. Maybe we’ll get to meet him someday.

Wiley: It’s broken.

Nina: Well, the only man in my life right now is my grandson.


Josslyn: There we were, thinking about everything we got wrong. I mean, all of the signals that had gotten crossed or misinterpreted. And then we were… well, you know, it was… yeah.

Trina: Well, Joss, I have to say, I’m a bit shocked.

Josslyn: Trina —

Trina: Shocked that it took you guys so long.

Josslyn: Wait, so you knew?

Trina: When you and Cam were at my graduation party, I thought you guys were acting a bit different, but I didn’t want to say anything.

Josslyn: So you’re not mad.

Trina: Why would I be mad that my two best friends finally wised up and realized that they’re meant to be together?

Josslyn: Well, because for a while, you and Cam —

Trina: Joss, please. That is so high school. We’ve matured since then. We’re four years away from being college graduates.

Josslyn: So you’re genuinely happy for me and Cam?

Trina: I’m happy for Cam. I feel nothing but pity for you.

[ Both chuckle ]

Cameron: Hey, so I got us some Shirley Temples. We can get sodas anywhere, so… a-are we good here?

[ Both laugh ]


Brook Lynn: I didn’t tell you Austin claims to be my cousin because I don’t know if it’s true. Quartermaines get pretenders all the time. And we all were quite shocked when he made his big announcement… except Monica. I swear, that woman, she has ice in her veins.

Maxie: Okay, well, can she give me a transfusion? ‘Cause I’m kind of freaking out right now that Austin’s gonna recognize you from that night in the woods. He could blow our whole story wide open.

Brook Lynn: Maxie, we have been over this. Austin was completely unconscious in the woods. He doesn’t remember a thing. And how do I know this? Because he’s already seen me quite a few times and hasn’t made the connection.

Maxie: Doesn’t mean he won’t.

Brook Lynn: He’s way too busy trying to vindicate his late father to pay attention to anything else. Don’t worry about Austin, Maxie. He might be a minor problem for the Quartermaines, but not for your baby.


Austin: Hi. Can I get a rye Manhattan on the rocks, please? Hello.

Ava: Hi. Austin.

Austin: Hi, Ava.

Ava: [ Chuckles ]

Austin: You remember me. That’s a good sign.

Ava: Oh, yeah. Well, I may have been, shall we say, “spirited” the night we met, but I was not unconscious. It’s nice to see you again.

Austin: Likewise. I’m glad to see you. I’m glad it’s not an unhappy reunion. So, your husband’s here. You two are still doing that thing.

Ava: What thing exactly?

Austin: You know, where you try and prove to yourself and everybody else that you belong apart by showing up at the same time at the same place. How’s that working out for you?


Nikolas: Stop trying to change the subject. How did you know about the cockroach that was sent to Ava? You were half a world away.

Spencer: It happened at a restaurant. Some customer posted it online and people freaked out and it blew up on social media. And I saw it.

Nikolas: Did it? Can I see?

Spencer: You could have at the time. I think someone from the Port Charles Grill got in contact with the poster and had it wiped. It’s not there anymore.

Nikolas: Is that right?

Spencer: I’m kind of glad, too. It was disgusting. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. Not even Ava.


Ava: You would know that everybody runs into each other at the Metro Court. I mean, there are other restaurants, of course.

Spencer: Father.

Nikolas: Hmm.

Spencer: Don’t.

Nikolas: I don’t know what you mean.

Spencer: Except clearly you do. Maybe it’s time to turn the page. It certainly looks like Ava has.


Anna: I just was pointing out that we both lost sisters recently.

Hopkins: Why are you so interested in my sister? What the hell is this?

Valentin: Move and I break your wrist.

Anna: Oi, this isn’t subtle.

Bartender: Hey!

Valentin: No?

Bartender: I don’t know who the hell —

Valentin: NYPD! Go clean some glasses! Apologize to the lady.

Anna: Stay where you are.

Hopkins: I’m sorry.

Valentin: You gonna talk now, flyboy?

Hopkins: Fine, I’ll talk. What do you want to know?

Anna: I want to know about the baby that your sister helped kidnap and the father, Peter August.


Brook Lynn: Okay, hurry up and say your goodbyes before somebody sees us and tells Monica. I hate gossip.

Maxie: You live for gossip.

Brook Lynn: Yeah, about other people. Start talking.

Maxie: I know you’re not gonna remember this, but it’s okay. I will. I’m gonna remember your sweet little face, your tiny little fingers, and that brand-new baby smell. I’m gonna remember this moment and take it all the way to Texas with me. You know, they say things are bigger in Texas. That means I’m gonna miss you that much more. Love you that much more. And be your mommy that much more.

Brook Lynn: I hate to do this —

Maxie: I know. Time’s up. I won’t say goodbye to her. I can’t.


Ava: I’m so sorry.

Austin: Why?

Ava: I’m mortified. F-f-for the other night.

Austin: Oh, don’t be. No, it was fun.

Ava: It was fun?

Austin: Yeah, it was fun. I’m from a small town. It’s quiet. Not much happens in Pautuck. For me to be a-a part of a public matrimonial drama, that’s a big night out. [ Chuckles ] It’s like diving in the deep end.

Ava: Mm, off the deep end, I think.

[ Both laugh ]

Austin: So, how are things with you two?

Ava: Divorce. We’re — we’re getting divorced.

Austin: Sorry to hear that. Some differences are irreconcilable.

Ava: Actually, it’s a matter of life and death.


Spencer: It seems like your wife has found a friend.

Nikolas: I don’t know. Last time I saw her with that guy —

Spencer: This isn’t the first time? Interesting.

Nikolas: Spencer, don’t.

Spencer: Don’t what? State the obvious.

Nikolas: Don’t try to stir things up.

Spencer: Sorry. Old habits. Ah, speaking of which, you should kick this one.

Nikolas: Ava is not a habit. She’s the woman that I love.

Spencer: Well, she’s awfully interested in that guy at the bar.

Nikolas: They’re just talking. No big deal.

Spencer: Yes. Well, [Clears throat] I am gonna take off.

Nikolas: You don’t have to go, do you?

Spencer: You’re preoccupied.

Nikolas: [ Sighs ] I’m sorry.

Spencer: It’s alright. I-I really do have somewhere to be. I’ll see you at home, Father. Father, I can’t help wondering…

Nikolas: Yeah?

Spencer: …If Ava and company are having a real conversation, maybe it’s a bigger deal than you think.


Cameron: So, you told her.

Josslyn: Oh, she already knew. Apparently, we were the only ones who didn’t.

Trina: Don’t think this changes anything, Cam. Sisters before misters always. Capiche?

Cameron: I totally get that. I’m just wondering if those same rules apply to your imaginary friend.

Trina: He’s not imaginary, Cam.

Cameron: Okay, well, then how come we haven’t seen his Instagram or a single photo of him?

Trina: Because some people prefer not to have a social media presence, Cam. Right now, I don’t blame him. If you’ll excuse me, I left my cover-up in the changing room.

Cameron: Trina, I was just joking. Did i put my foot in it again?

Josslyn: What else is new?

Cameron: Us.

Josslyn: Yeah, I guess we are.


Willow: I promise to post lots of pictures of Wiley so the next time you see him in person, you won’t be too surprised by how much he’s grown.

Nina: Alright, I’ll hold you to that. And I hope next time I see you that Chase is back on his feet.

Willow: We all want that.

Nina: And maybe you guys can start thinking about a little brother or sister for Wiley. If that’s any of my business, which I don’t think it is my business.

Willow: [ Chuckles ] It’s fine. We just — we haven’t really thought about that yet.

Nina: Okay. Yeah. You know, Chase is probably — I know he will be a really great dad and you’re already a wonderful mother. I just hope that you get exactly what you want. My fingers are crossed.

Willow: Thanks. And hey, you never know. If you and Carly can start to get along, anything’s possible.

Sonny: Never leave me behind again.

Nina: I won’t.

Willow: Nina? Did I say something wrong?


Sonny: I’m sorry, Lenny. I broke my promise, reached out to Nina. She’s coming back to Nixon Falls.

Lenny: I wish to hell you hadn’t done that. As if this disease hasn’t cost us enough, n-now it’s gonna cost Nina precious time with her grandson.

Phyllis: Nina can make her own decisions. And since we’re all being open and honest, I’m glad you called her. And I know as much as she wants to be with her grandson, we need all the love we can get right now.

Sonny: She’s offering more than love, Lenny.

Lenny: No way.

Sonny: Why not?

Lenny: I won’t take one dime of her money.

Sonny: This is not about keeping the tan-o afloat or paying your utility bills. This is your life. It’s more important than your pride or — or a bank account.

Lenny: I don’t want to be indebted to anybody.

Sonny: Yeah, but listen. Nina and I, w-we owe you gu– we love you. You’ve given us so much. You’re gonna let us repay our debt. [ Voice breaking ] We’re gonna fight this cancer together. You got it?


Hopkins: [ Groans ] I-I swear, I don’t know what happened to the baby. It was my job to pick up the father.

Valentin:  The father Peter August?

Hopkins: Yeah. I was gonna fly him to the rendezvous point, pick up my sister, the baby, and the mother, and take them wherever he told me to.

Anna: Which was where?

Hopkins: Everything was need-to-know. He was very clear he’d give me the new destination when we were back in the air.

Anna: Okay, so you were hired to pick up Peter from the roof of General Hospital. After you picked him up, where did you take him?

Hopkins: I didn’t!


Austin: A stalker? That’s horrible. And — and you feel somehow that the stalker is forcing you toward divorce?

Ava: Yes. But we do what we must do for the sake of our children, right? And in my case, that means handing my daughter over to Carly Corinthos for safekeeping.

Austin: Oh, I just met her. She seems nice. Friend of yours?

Ava: No. No, she was married to my daughter’s father. And if I’m being honest, my daughter is… [ Sighs ] She’s happy there and she’s safe.

Austin: It’s just awful. Parents separated from a child.

Ava: It is indeed.

Austin: I mean, I don’t know firsthand, but I’m just thinking about Maxie Jones and her baby.

Ava: Well, that’s not the same thing. That’s not the same thing at all.


[ Cellphone rings ]

Nikolas: Yes, Martin. Yes, I told her. She says a lot can happen in six weeks. No, I’m not holding out hope that she’ll change her mind. I’m hoping that the stalker will slip up and we can bring him to justice of the Cassadine variety.


Cameron: Hey, do you need more sunblock?

Josslyn: Oh, uh, yeah, actually. I can feel myself starting to roast.

Cameron: Do you want me to…?

Josslyn: Oh, please. Yeah.

Spencer: Watch the hands, townie.


Maxie: You’re a little superhero, you know. You have a secret identity. To the world and to you. You’re gonna be Bailey Quartermaine now. But here and here, you’re always gonna be my Louise.

Brook Lynn: Maxie, I want you to know that, um, I promise this amazing little creature will always be cared for and loved, okay?

Maxie: I know. If I had any doubts, I wouldn’t be able to do this.


Nina: I already miss Wiley, and I’m not leaving until the morning.

Willow: Well, if you’re not heading back too early, maybe a quick breakfast visit?

Nina: Well, I’m — I’m leaving first thing in the morning, so that’s why we have to make the most out of today. Okay, little guy? Come here, handsome. Let’s go. Okay, wave to Mommy. Alright, let’s get out of here. Thank you so much. We’ll see you later.

Willow: Bye. Have fun.

Nina: Okay.


Nurse: Mr. Caulfield, the doctor’s ready to discuss your treatment plan options with you.

Lenny: Looks like I’m outnumbered. Let’s do this.

Sonny: One day at a time, right?

Phyllis: I know, Mike. It’s just that…some days are harder than others.

Sonny: Yeah, I hate that. There’s never enough time.


Anna: Okay, I’m confused. Alright, you said Peter hired you to take him off the roof of General Hospital.

Hopkins: That was the plan. I couldn’t get the chopper close enough, so I had to abort.

Anna: Well, if you didn’t airlift him out, how did he escape?


On the next “General Hospital”

Alexis (to Shawn): I think it might be unavoidable for both of us.

Nikolas (to TJ and Molly): Please tell me you have good news.

Cam (to Spencer): So how long are you in town for?

Laura (to Jordan): You’ll need to cut that short.

Trina: You’re just full of surprises.

Anna (to Valentin): Can you describe this other person that was on the roof?

Finn (to Elizabeth): I’m not sure the authorities are gonna agree with you.
