Dante arrived at Pozzulo’s and knocked on Sonny’s office door. Sonny ended a call with Brick, and Dante thanked him for Thanksgiving dinner. Dante admitted that Michael had been right about Sonny having Dex abducted and beaten, and he admitted that he’d covered for Sonny. Dante said that the line between his love for his father and his duty as a cop was starting to blur, as he would have pursued Dex’s case more aggressively if the suspect had been anyone else. He added that he needed Sonny to know that he was aware what Sonny had done. Sonny didn’t see the problem because he had never asked Dante to cover for him and said that he never would.

Dante wanted to know about Sonny’s involvement in Anna’s escape. Sonny didn’t have a response to that question and Dante hoped that Sonny had been very careful. Dante said that he wasn’t out to get Sonny (like his brother Michael) but he intended to keep his oath to uphold the law. “I wouldn’t expect any less,” Sonny said. Sonny wanted Dante to know that no matter what happened in the future he wouldn’t love Dante any less.  Dante told Sonny that he loved him and then gave him a hug.  Dante then left.

At Dex’s apartment, Josslyn dressed Dex’s wound in fresh bandages and said that it was healing well. When she was done she told him he could put a shirt on. He apologized and remarked that he hadn’t noticed that it made her uncomfortable.  She had, after all, seen him in less. “You’ve even slept in my bed,” she replied. Dex said it was a shame that he had been so feverish that all he could do was sleep. “There’s always next time,” Josslyn joked. She advised him to take it easy and limit his activity, as she’d done some research on gun shot wounds. She promised not to bail on him before he was fully healed. Dex recalled his conversation with Michael about keeping Josslyn at a distance, and he told her that she needed to leave and never return.

Josslyn said that she needed to get more bandages and antibiotic ointment for Dex, but he insisted that he could order those things online. He said that he was trying to do the right thing, but she demanded honesty. “You want honest?” he asked, and he kissed her. At that moment, there was a knock, it was Sonny, who instructed Dex to open the door.

Drew arrived at Carly’s house, and Michael wondered why Drew had wanted to meet there. Drew confided that he wanted to have a confidential conversation about the potential criminal charges against him and Carly for insider trading. Drew thought that it was best for both he and Michael to reconcile their relationship with Ned. Michael agreed. Drew added that he and Carly needed to stop seeing each other. A surprised Michael admitted that it was the happiest he’d seen his mother in a while. Michael didn’t want to get involved in Carly’s personal life, but he did say that people usually got less time together than they thought they would. Drew wondered if Michael was worried about Sonny retaliating, but Michael replied that the feud with Sonny had made him value his family more. He told Drew to take advantage of the time he had with Carly, and then he left to return home to Willow.

Carly arrived at the Quartermaine gatehouse and found Willow screaming at Nina to leave. Carly entered the house as Willow passed out. Carly and Nina tried to revive Willow. When Willow finally woke up, Nina insisted on calling 911, but Willow refused. Carly asked Nina if they could speak outside and they walked out. Willow apologized to the baby, but she promised to get the baby into the world safely. Outside, Nina told Carly she didn’t want another lecture, as she’d only come by to ask a favor of Willow. Carly said she believed her, but she told Nina that her visit had a terrible effect on Willow and that the best thing for Willow and the baby was for Nina to stay away. Nina insisted that she never wanted to hurt them, and Carly told her she believed her. Nina left and Carly went back into the house with Willow and insisted that Willow see a doctor. A few minutes later, they returned to the living room after Carly had checked Willow’s blood pressure and the baby on the fetal monitor.  Willow appeared to be fine, but Carly pointed out that she was not an obstetrician.  

Michael arrived home, and Carly told him that Willow had collapsed. Michael promised his mother that Willow would be seen by a doctor. Carly advised Willow to rest, and she left. Michael messaged Dr. Randolph on his phone. A short while later, Willow thanked Michael for the soup, and she told him Nina had been a factor in her collapse. Michael was furious when Willow told him that Nina had accused her of being selfish. But, Willow assured him that Nina wouldn’t be back. Michael insisted that the entire situation could have been avoided had Nina known that Willow was sick. He told Willow that it was time to tell people about Willow’s leukemia so they could concentrate on finding a bone marrow donor.

Carly arrived home to find Drew there. He kissed her and told her that they needed to take advantage of the time they had together. She reminded him that they were supposed to stay away from each other, but he said that he couldn’t do that. Drew got a notification on his phone and Carly insisted that he check it. He looked at his phone and shared the good news that he’d gotten a lead on Willow’s birth parents. Carly was shocked.

At Rice Plaza, Sasha continued to decorate with Sam’s help. Sam said she hoped that the boys wouldn’t claim to be too old to help decorate. Sasha talked about how magical Christmas was for kids, but then she quickly changed the subject. Sam told her that she didn’t have to do that. Sam told Sasha that she could say whatever she was thinking. Sasha admitted that she was working on acknowledging her feelings in therapy. Sam told Sasha that her first daughter was stillborn.  Sasha was obviously moved and told Sam how sorry she was. She then shared her hopes of taking Liam to see Santa with Brando.

A short while later, Sasha talked about how good it felt to do something useful and positive. “Helping others is a great way to help yourself,” she said happily. After their conversation, Sam departed and Nina returned. Sasha could tell that something had happened, and Nina told her that sometimes she feared that she was just as horrible a person as Willow believed she was. 

Dante found Sam at Rice Plaza, and he advised her to pace herself, as they still had to decorate their place. Dante talked about Sonny, and how he hoped that his relationship with Rocco wouldn’t end up as troubled as his relationship with Sonny. Sam told him how much love she saw between Dante and Rocco. He thanked Sam for everything she had done for him, and they kissed.

At Pentonville, Victor spoke to someone on the phone and demanded an update on what had happened to the necklace. He and Nikolas then stepped into the visitation room. Spencer was led in by a guard, and when he saw that Nikolas was there, he demanded to be returned to his cell. Victor insisted that Spencer would need his father’s support once he got out of jail. “Not if you keep your end of the bargain,” Spencer replied. Nikolas demanded to know what that meant and Spencer revealed that he had agreed to keep quiet about Nikolas sleeping with Esme, in exchange for Victor giving him his birthright ahead of schedule. Spencer advised Nikolas that he would no longer need his support.

Nikolas told Spencer that if he would just give him another chance, he would never hurt Spencer again. Spencer replied that he would settle for never having to listen to any more of Nikolas’ empty words. “I told you this was a bad idea,” Nikolas told Victor, and he left. Victor seemed disappointed and demanded Spencer sit down. Spencer didn’t care that Victor was disappointed. He told Victor that while Victor might be “all-powerful on the outside,” inside Pentonville, he had serious competition. As he finished making his point, Cyrus entered and apologized to Spencer for being late to their chess game.

Victor was glad to see that Spencer had made friends, but Cyrus said that he was family. Spencer was grateful for all of his uncles looking out for him, including Sonny and Martin. Victor revealed himself as Spencer’s true, biological uncle. Cyrus, having found the remark to be an insult, revealed that Victor had ordered hits on Martin and Laura, which prompted a shocked response from Spencer. Victor then proceeded to announce all of Cyrus’ crimes.  “I don’t hear you denying it,” Cyrus said. “I don’t answer to you,” Victor hissed. “You will if you ever go near my family again, and that includes Spencer,” Cyrus countered.

Victor told Cyrus to exercise caution as he would not want to have Victor as an enemy. Cyrus asked if that meant that Victor was adding him to the hit list as well. Victor warned Spencer to not allow himself to be manipulated by Cyrus. Spencer advised Victor that he would never allow himself to be manipulated again. Victor reminded Spencer that he still needed Victor’s help and he left. Cyrus apologized that Spencer had to learn of his uncle’s guilt in that way. Spencer said, “could it be more obvious?”  He told Cyrus that he was no longer in the mood for chess, so he excused himself and returned to his cell.

Update written by Shane

At the Quartermaine mansion, Brook Lynn greeted Dante and provided him with the letter for the review board. Dante told her that it was too late.  The review board needed her letter by Friday of the previous week.  Brook Lynn was desperate to help Chase and said there must be something that she can do and rushed to get her coat.  Dante said that unless she had connections on the review board there was nothing she could do and even then Chase would not want her using her connections because she would be forced to lie.  Dante explained that Chase would not want his badge returned to him based on lies that were engineered by Brook Lynn.

Brook Lynn came clean to Dante and explained that she had been extremely selfish in her desire to take down Linc, and she had hoped that Chase would have eventually changed his mind and wanted to be a singer more than a cop. She told Dante that Chase had ended their relationship.  Dante appeared sad for her and said that he was sorry.  Brook Lynn said that there was no need for him to lie to save her feelings.  Dante explained that he wasn’t lying and that he thought that Chase had been happy with her. Brook Lynn was surprised when she heard this news.  Later, after Dante left she read the letter aloud she had written for the review board.  She then became angry and threw it across the room.  Suddenly, her emotions seemed to change and she vowed to do whatever was necessary to help Chase be restored to the police force. She made a call to an unknown individual and pleaded for “help.”

.At Rice Plaza, Nina and Sasha carried Christmas decorations to a table. Nina looked around and realized that she and Sasha had been the first to arrive, but Nina was confident the volunteers would be there shortly. Sasha was flattered that Nina had put her in charge of the holiday decorations for the plaza. Sasha assured Nina that she didn’t need her staying around to supervise and said she would not let Nina down. After Nina left, Sasha began to organize things when Chase arrived. Chase was curious what Sasha was up to, so she told him that Nina had put her in charge of transforming the plaza.

Chase thought it had been generous of Sasha to take on the project, but Sasha confessed that it helped her to stay busy, since the guardianship limited what she could do at Deception. Sasha invited Chase to help, and he took her up on the offer. He admitted that he needed something to focus on because he had broken up with Brook Lynn. Sasha felt bad for Chase, and offered to listen if he needed to talk. Chase explained the break up by saying that he and Brook Lynn simply had different priorities.

Chase accused Brook Lynn of acting in her own self-interest by putting his singing career ahead of his police career, but Sasha asked if it was possible that Brook Lynn had sincerely believed that Chase becoming a singer would be best for their relationship. Chase considered what she had said and said that she might have a point. 

Dante joined Chase and Sasha on the plaza. Chase wanted to know if Dante had heard anything from the review board. Dante told Chase that he had already given his testimony and hoped that it would help Chase. Chase thanked Dante. Sasha invited Dante to help them decorate and to her surprise, he agreed to help before going to work.

After Sasha went to fetch a box, Chase received a text notification. Chase read the text message. “It’s final. The review board turned down my appeal,” Chase said. Dante was obviously sympathetic to Chase’s plight. Chase’s tone filled with sadness as he realized that he was no longer a police officer — and would never be one again.

At Pozzulo’s, Valentin was escorted into Sonny’s office. Sonny asked about Anna, but Valentin revealed that Anna had decided to handle things on her own. Sonny was curious why Valentin had come to see him, so Valentin revealed that he had a business proposal for Sonny. Sonny wasn’t interested in doing business with Valentin. Sonny explained that his collaboration with Valentin had been for Anna’s sake because Anna was important to Sonny. 

Valentin asked if Sonny had heard of the Pikeman Security Group. Sonny was familiar with the mercenary group, so Valentin revealed that the group wanted to move “classified merchandise” through Port Charles — without interference from the government or law enforcement — and Sonny’s facilities would be ideal for the operation. Valentin acknowledged that he would receive a fee, but the group was prepared to pay Sonny $10,000,000 for every successful shipment. Sonny had reservations because it sounded too good to be true, and Sonny was curious how Valentin was connected to the group. Valentin explained that he had occasionally worked as a logistics contractor with Pikeman, and extending the offer to Sonny had earned Valentin a favor.

Sonny wanted to know about Valentin’s agreement with Pikeman, but Valentin would only tell Sonny that it had nothing to do with him or his organization. Valentin gave his word, but Sonny said that Valentin’s word was worthless to him. Valentin said that it would be in Sonny’s best interests to take Pikeman up on their offer. Sonny made it clear that he did not like ultimatums, but Valentin clarified that he was just the messenger.

Valentin explained that Pikeman would find someone else, but the group fully intended to move their merchandise through Port Charles because it was a shipping hub with access to the Atlantic and Canadian waters. According to Valentin, if Sonny wasn’t interested in working with Pikeman, then Sonny would be reclassified as a liability and obstacle, and Pikeman had a reputation for removing obstacles. Valentin told Sonny that he could either make a boatload of money, or gain a new set of powerful enemies. “Ball is in your court,” Valentin said as he exited Sonny’s office.

After Valentin left, Sonny called Brick. Sonny asked Brick to gather as much information as possible on Pikeman Security Group and to get back to Sonny as quickly as possible.

At Carly’s house, Carly entered the kitchen and said good morning to Josslyn.  Josslyn, who was seated at the island and focused on her open laptop, did not return Carly’s greeting. So, Carly repeated her greeting and made sure to get her daughter’s attention. Josslyn told Carly that she had decided to change her major to pre-med. Carly was taken aback, and was curious what had prompted the sudden change. Josslyn explained that she had hated feeling helpless when Dex had been shot, but Carly assured her daughter that Josslyn had done more than most people would have done under similar circumstances.

Josslyn admitted that she had felt a sense of fear both when Dex was shot and when Ava had been stabbed.  She said she did not wish to have that sense of fear anymore.  She wanted to know what to do in those situations. Josslyn was surprised at Carly’s lack of enthusiasm for her decision, but Carly had concerns because medical school was difficult and time-consuming.

Carly wanted Josslyn to be clear on her motivations.  She wanted to know if Dex had any role in Josslyn’s decision.  She cautioned Josslyn to admit her feelings for Dex with an awareness of the violence that was likely to plague Dex’s life. Josslyn promised that becoming a doctor was separate from Dex. Carly asked about Cameron and Josslyn’s mood saddened.  She said that things with Cameron just weren’t the same anymore and that she simply didn’t know how to end it.  She couldn’t stand the idea of hurting Cameron. Carly told her she understood, but that the longer she waited, the harder it would be to end things with Cameron.

At the Quartermaine gatehouse, Michael and Willow arrived home. Willow was weak and Michael helped guide her to the couch in the center of the room. He offered to make some tea, but Willow declined. She sat as Michael knelt at her feet and slid off her boots. Willow urged Michael to go about his day as usual because Michael and Wiley’s routine gave her a sense of normalcy. Willow lay down to take a nap as Michael draped a blanket on her. He promised to return soon, but he stopped at the door to look at her. “And he says he doesn’t hover,” Willow said. She smiled but her eyes remained closed.

At Dex’s apartment, Dex had a dream about Josslyn and their passionate kiss in her dorm room. He awakened and sat up quickly, but was overcome with pain from the gunshot wound. There was a knock at the door and Dex answered it to reveal Michael with his phone. As Michael entered the apartment, he handed the phone to Dex. Michael asked how the phone had ended up outside the gatehouse, so Dex told Michael about his role in Anna’s escape and the gunshot wound.

Dex explained that he had hoped Michael might get him patched up or at least to his apartment. Michael was not happy when Dex admitted that Josslyn had helped, but Michael realized that it had explained Josslyn’s strange behavior when Michael and Willow had arrived home. Michael was furious that Dex had made Josslyn an accomplice to a crime, and he was further angered when Dex admitted that Carly had gotten involved by getting him antibiotics.

Michael made it clear that he had no desire to dismantle Sonny’s organization at the expense of his mother and sister. Dex promised that this was an isolated incident and that it would never happen again, but Michael still wasn’t satisfied. Michael warned Dex that he would rather call everything off than put Josslyn at risk. “You need to find a way to keep her at arm’s length,” Michael said. Shortly after Michael left, Dex answered a knock at his door to reveal Josslyn standing in the hallway.

At the gatehouse, Willow woke up when she heard someone knocking at the door. She was confused when she saw Nina standing at the door. Nina explained that she had a favor to ask of Willow. Willow informed Nina that Wiley was at school, so Nina’s attempt to accidentally run into him would not work. Nina admitted that she had purposefully stopped by when Wiley was not home. “I was hoping you might want to help out a friend,” Nina said.

Willow poured herself a glass of water as Nina told her about the holiday project at Rice Plaza and Sasha’s role in getting everything done. Nina admitted that she had thought it might help Sasha to have Willow on hand to get the work done, but Willow told Nina that it was not a good day for her. Willow pointed out that Nina had not only taken on the project because Nina had decided it was what Sasha had needed, but Nina had put Sasha in charge of it without consulting Sasha about any of it. Nina was confident that she had made the right decision because Sasha had seemed happy when Nina had left the plaza. Willow was curious why — if Sasha had been doing great — Sasha needed friends to rally around her. “You are spinning your own narrative like you always do,” Willow said.

Willow accused Nina of not having consideration for anyone, and Willow advised Nina to pick a lane and stay in it. Nina grew  defensive. Nina claimed that she had hoped that Willow would be willing to set aside their differences to help a friend. “There goes that narrative again,” Willow said. “Willow Tait, you’re as selfish as they come,” Nina shot back. Nina insisted that Willow had everything, while Sasha had lost Liam and Brando, suffered several nervous breakdowns, and been put under a guardianship. Nina claimed that Willow’s life was perfect because Willow had graduated from nursing school, had plenty of time off from work for naps, and lived on a beautiful estate in a house with a man and son who loved and adored her. Nina also reminded Willow that she was pregnant with another child. As Nina ranted about Willow’s life being perfect, Willow lost it. 

“Shut up!” Willow screamed. Willow repeated it two more times, each time gaining momentum and anger.  Stunned by the screams, Nina stopped speaking. Willow accused Nina of using Sasha as an excuse to scheme her way back into her good graces. Willow insisted that Nina had lost her mind if she thought that she would simply look past all of the lies that Nina had spread about Willow and T.J. Carly approached the gatehouse, but slowed when she heard Willow screaming. Carly got close enough to see what was going on through the window in the door. She paused to see who Willow was speaking to and was shocked when she saw that it was Nina.

When Willow ordered Nina to leave, Carly opened the door and stood in the doorway. Nina threw her hands up in defeat. Carly was ready for an altercation, but before she could say anything, Willow fainted, her head striking the floor.

General Hospital Updates

Update written by Shane

At the cabin where Holly has taken refuge, Jordan orders Mac to move in, the cabin explodes taking everyone by surprise.  Holly rushes out consumed by flames. Robert, who is at first subdued by Mac, rushes over with a blanket and extinguishes the flames covering Holly.  Robert screams.

The paramedics, after conducting their initial exam, explain Holly has third-degree burns over most of her body. They tell Robert that the burn unit at General Hospital is not equipped to handle such a serious case, so they plan to airlift Holly to a hospital that is better equipped. Robert goes with her. Jordan tells Mac she needs him on site.

The paramedics load Holly into an ambulance with Robert by her side. Later by the side of the road, the ambulance stops and the back doors open.  The paramedics exit and Felicia reveals herself as the driver. Holly sits up in the back of the ambulance without a hint of injury.

They all exit the ambulance and Holly thanks Felicia, who provides her with a new passport. Holly explains the events as they have unfolded over the past 24 hours. Felicia had shown up the previous night at the cabin and helped her fix the stove to explode when the time was right. She had also brought flame retardant clothing. Holly further reveals to Felicia that she and Robert staged his drugging, providing her the opportunity to “steal” the necklace. Holly explains that Ethan’s only chance at survival is if Victor thinks she is of no use to him. Felicia tells everyone that the official story will record that Holly was transported to a burn unit thousands of miles from Port Charles on the other side of the world. Holly is just sorry they had to keep Mac in the dark. Felicia says that under the circumstances she believes he would understand and says it provides him with plausible deniability.  As long as he is in the dark, he will not be lying to Jordan.

Holly then recalls meeting and giving Selina one of the diamonds from the necklace, in exchange for her drugging Victor.  Selina asked her what Victor did to her, and she explained he was holding her son hostage. Selina says that there is a special place in hell for men like him.  Holly says, “Yes, the 9th ring.” The drug will pay him back in kind, but it won’t kill him. She’ll never get Ethan back with Victor dead. Selina agreed to help her.

Once Felicia departs, Holly tells Robert she’s sorry that this must be goodbye. She notes this isn’t their moment, and he laughs, “It never is.” Before he can let her go, he asks for the necklace. She laughs, and hands it over. Holly tells Robert to be careful and blows him a kiss as she walks away.

Back at the cabin, Jordan tells Mac that it appears a faulty stove had caused the explosion. Mac is handed the remains of Robert’s briefcase, but there is no necklace to be found. He tells Jordan that the fire was so hot it could have destroyed the necklace.  Jordan says that the WSB is not going to be happy with the news.

At Portia and Curtis’ place, Marshall sits outside cleaning his clarinet when Trina tries to sneak out. He expected boredom to drive her out sooner or later. She admits she has cabin fever and needs room to breathe.

Inside, Portia and Curtis talk about the holiday. Curtis plans to make the most of his time with his father in case his disease returns. He asks what the chances are of that happening. Portia says she is not a psychiatrist and so she can not help Curtis in that regard. Curtis tells her Marshall claims he hasn’t had an episode since his arrest at the protest, and maybe he caught a break. 

Back outside, Curtis and Portia find Marshall with Trina. Curtis tells his dad the game is about to start if he wants to watch. Portia and Marshall head in, and Curtis offers Trina the last piece of the pie. She pushes it aside. Trina knows he posted Marshall outside, which Curtis admits he did, but only to watch out for Esme. She accepts the pie and cleans the plate.

Back inside, Portia hopes Marshall will play the clarinet for them tonight. She asks if his illness has ever affected his music. Marshall says it never did, just his ambitions. He wonders why all the questions. She says that genetic counseling wasn’t available back when he was diagnosed and he could get it now. Marshall says that it can not possibly tell him anything he doesn’t already know. 

In the kitchen of the Quartermaine mansion, Chase asks Brook Lynn if she had ever planned on telling him about the letter Dante asked her to write. She’s shocked Dante told him and explains she’s been so busy with his singing career she hasn’t had time to think about it. Chase wonders if she was ever planning on telling him or writing the letter. She swears she had every intention of writing the letter once they had taken Linc down. Chase grows angry and says that taking Linc down was never a certainty.

Brook Lynn says, “There is only one reason, us.” She cries and tells Chase that she’s never had anything like she has with him, and she didn’t think she was capable of finding it. However, he showed her that wasn’t the case. She says even if she never exposes Linc or gets her songs back, she’d be okay because they keep getting closer. She thought that given enough time he’d forget about the badge and simply want what they have together.

Chase admits that singing has been fun. However, he is not a singer. He explains she took away the choice for him to decide for himself what he wanted to do with his future. Brook Lynn understands and says she is fine with him “hanging up the mic.” Chase says, “Yes my singing career is over, but so are we.” She begs him to think about what he’s saying. Chase tells her that she kept him from the thing that makes him who he is. He says that they are over and leaves.

At The Savoy, Britt collides with Ava (at the bar drinking a martini) and orders herself a cosmopolitan. Cody shows up, as does Nikolas. Britt complains to Ava about how long it’s been since she had real “relationship sex.” 2014 was the last time and with her husband Nikolas, who approaches them and brags that he’s a “tough act to follow.”

Meanwhile, Liesl grabs Cody and drags him to another area of the club. Liesl tells Cody that Britt doesn’t have the time or energy for romantic distractions. She offers him money to stay away from Britt.  Cody says that he doesn’t want her money.

Cody says he originally wanted the necklace, but then he wanted Britt. He thought he could have both, but now he’s lost them both. He tells Liesl not to worry, he knows where he is not wanted and that he will not be bothering Britt anymore. Cody does ask Liesl to tell him what is wrong with Britt. Liesl tells him that answers were never part of the offer.

Selina finds Victor drinking by himself and joins him. Victor gets a text from Gavin that he’s at the location and trying to get the necklace. Victor texts Gavin and tells him that the necklace is key and that Holly is expendable. Victor and Selina discuss their recent family holiday.

Back at the bar, Britt orders another round for her, Ava and Nikolas. Britt suggests Nikolas be her wingman tonight.  Britt suddenly becomes woozy and can’t stand. She is caught by Victor and Selina who rush over to help.

Selina asks if Britt has been overserved. Britt says that she has only had one drink but becomes unstable again. Victor helps her to a table. Selina follows, and Britt continues to yell at them to get away from her as she can handle her alcohol. Victor soon realizes that Britt is sick and tells her that this has nothing to do with alcohol. Britt screams, “Don’t say that!”  Liesl appears and slaps Victor, and Cody forcibly moves Victor to another area of the club. Selina meanwhile recalls sending Victor a drink earlier containing the drug Holly had given her.

Later, Liesl tells Britt they should go home. She helps her daughter walk out of the club as Cody watches.

Elsewhere, Ava fills Nikolas in on Mac and Kevin believing she can convince Ryan to help them find Esme. Nikolas is understandably upset, and makes it seem he fears for Ava’s safety.

Alone, Victor finishes his drugged drink. He gets a text from Gavin that Holly is disabled and the necklace is missing. Victor smashes the empty glass that had contained his drink. He has consumed every last drop.

Update written by Shane

Carly arrived at the Quartermaine mansion and Drew told her that she looked absolutely beautiful.  She responded by saying that Drew looked pretty handsome himself.  Before they could continue the conversation, Willow and Michael arrived and Carly and Drew greeted both of them. Michael and Willow were pleased when they learned that Carly intended to help Drew with the search for Willow’s birth parents.

Olivia would not hear of any talk about the Quartermaine’s jaded Thanksgiving past and was determined that this year the Quartermaine family would have a turkey for Thanksgiving.  She informed Ned and Michael that she had ordered it herself from a farm with a French name, in Port Charles. But Olivia clearly doesn’t know French that well or she would have figured out that they were sending her a real, live turkey.  When it arrived, both Michael and Ned made fun of Olivia for not realizing that she was being sent a live turkey.  Michael suggested that they prepare the bird themselves when Olivia’s plan to bribe the Quartermaine chef to prepare the bird, failed miserably.  Ned said that preparing the turkey had been part of Thanksgiving since the dawn of the holiday.  Michael agreed and said that he would grab Drew and Chase to assist.

Leo was thrilled to see the turkey but did not like the idea of Ned and Michael prepping it and cooking it, so he set it free inside the house and then proceeded to run room to room screaming for everyone to get out of the house because there was a turkey on the loose.

Sonny hosted his own Thanksgiving dinner but found time for romance beforehand by giving Nina a pair of diamond earrings. Sam and Dante were the first guests to arrive. When they shared a private moment, Sam voiced her concerns about Cody, and Dante shrugged them off. Sam said she appreciated Dante defending his friend but she was curious if Cody was up to something concerning the Ice Princess.  Dante said that the necklace might actually be Cody’s property and he said that having come from nothing, it was perfectly natural for Cody to defend his interests in the necklace.

The conversation between Dante and Sam was brought to a screeching halt when they heard Gladys tear into Alexis from the other room for publishing the fact that Esme might be the prime suspect in the Hook killings. She felt she should have been the first to know, seeing how Brando was one of the killer’s victims. Nina was confused and asked Gladys if she had not been informed that Esme was a suspect. Gladys responded by saying she had not. Dante told them all that this was because the PCPD did not have a prime suspect because the investigation was ongoing and it was important that the press not release information prematurely.  Alexis glared at them all, knowing that she had already authorized the story to be printed.  Sonny asked everyone to remain calm and reminded them that Thanksgiving was about family.  Gladys reminded Sonny that Brando was her family.  Her only family.  Alexis then apologized for releasing the information.  She said that she thought that Gladys would be pleased with her decision because she was turning up the heat on the investigation at a time when it appeared to have run cold.  Gladys, however, was having no part of Alexis’ apology and retreated from the room.

Laura, Robert, Mac and Jordan gathered to track down Holly. They finally got a lead on her. But before they began discussions, Laura dispatched the duplicitous Deputy Mayor Ashby elsewhere, before she could overhear the details of the search.

Meanwhile, Holly modeled the Ice Princess necklace while hiding out in an abandoned cabin in the woods. She made herself a fire to keep warm without noticing that gas had been leaked onto the floor. When the authorities arrived, Robert begged her to give up and come out of the cabin. Holly asked if Laura was all right and told Robert to apologize to her for her actions.

Back at the PCPD, Felicia had brought everyone Thanksgiving dinner because she knew that they would be working. Felicia asked Laura how she was doing with everything that had happened in the last twenty-four hours.  Laura replied that she was fine.  Felicia said that she couldn’t believe that Holly would steal Laura’s car and leave her on the side of the road all for a necklace.  Laura told Felicia she believed the matter was far more complicated than just “a necklace.” Felicia said that she agreed, but that she still could not believe the events that had transpired.

The Q’s looked on in horror from the back windows of the mansion’s kitchen as the turkey tore the room apart. Brook Lynn congratulated Olivia on her valiant effort to create a perfect Thanksgiving for the family. She then named all the wonderful women who had tried and failed in the past to set the Quartermaine Thanksgiving curse right (including her grandmother, Lila Quartermaine). But, she said that at some point you have to accept tradition, as it is. Olivia agreed, but was out of ideas for what they would all eat.  The entire group said in unison, “Luigi’s.”  The pizza arrived, the Quartermaine’s sang, and once again, all appeared right with the world. 

Sasha stared out of the windows of Sonny’s penthouse, while she recalled the events of her wedding to Brando. Sonny came in and asked how she was doing. They spoke briefly and Sonny told her she was always welcome at his house.  Sasha thanked him and he then asked her if Gladys was still exercising her responsibilities as guardian with a “hands-on” attitude.  Sasha said that she believed that she and Gladys finally understood each other.  

Gladys, on the other hand, said that she had to make a call and excused herself.  She called the Savoy, told them she was having a bad day and needed some fun.  She then booked herself a seat at Selina Wu’s next poker game. 

Back at the cabin, Jordan instructed Mac to move in with armed police units as Robert begged her to give Holly more time to do the right thing.  Jordan said that Holly had already had enough time; but before she could finish her statement there was a large explosion in the cabin which nearly knocked everyone to the ground.  Shortly after, a woman, who appeared to be Holly burst through the front door, completely consumed by flames.

Update written by Shane

Jordan phoned Mac and instructed him to secure Ava’s cooperation in their quest to locate Esme. Mac looked over at Kevin and Ava, at the Metro Court and made his way to their table. Mac told Ava that he needed her help in catching Esme. Kevin backed Mac up and said that they believed Ryan Chamberlain was likely to know Esme’s whereabouts. They both believed that if anyone was likely to somehow get Ryan to slip up and reveal information it would be Ava. Ava listened intently to their plan and agreed to it without the slightest hesitation. Mac told her to take some time to consider it and she said that she didn’t need any time.  She said she wanted to protect Trina from Esme and added that she wanted Esme to “rot.”

At General Hospital, T.J. told Diane and Jordan that Robert was “sleeping it off” although he was waiting for the results of the tox screen. Jordan said that she was convinced that Robert had been drugged, and T.J. ordered a rush on the tox screen. In his room, Robert awakened, and Diane was sitting with him. Diane refreshed his memory about the tequila shots and the reaction she believed he had to them.  She also filled him in on his strange behavior and the trip to his room with Holly. Diane added that she had given the WSB his message. Robert suddenly realized that his briefcase was gone and Diane confirmed that he had not been in possession of it when he stumbled off the elevator at the Metro Court. He said, “get Ashford in here……now.”  Diane rushed to get Jordan.

Dante paid a visit to Heather at Spring Ridge. As he was led into her cell, he found her painting. Heather asked Dante if he wanted to model for her. Dante revealed that he was there to question her about the transport crash. Heather offered to tell him for a price. Dante admitted that he couldn’t make a deal, but he thought that if she provided information, it would help her later.

Heather refused, and Dante told her she’d have plenty of time to perfect her painting in prison. He knocked on the door for the guard to let him out, and Heather frowned. She later banged on the door and requested a phone call.

Elsewhere at Spring Ridge, a caregiver attempted to read stories of interest from the newspaper to Ryan. He noted that there had been no new developments on the hook killer, and that Anna DeVane was still on the run.

Laura and Scott chatted while standing in Rice Plaza. They talked about family, and Laura noted her intention to locate Lucy’s real shooter to bring them to justice. Holly sat on a bench nearby and overheard their conversation. Laura and Scott made their way to the bench, and Holly said she had seen a woodchuck floating up into the air. She noted that she was waiting for a ride-share because she had business to tend to. She said she hadn’t expected to see so much activity around her.  Laura and Scott were perplexed that Holly would be working on the night before Thanksgiving. Scott received a phone call from Heather and walked off sounding annoyed.  Laura insisted that she drive Holly to her meeting with her contact rather than leave Holly alone waiting for a ride-share.  Laura said that she would not take no for an answer.  Holly reluctantly agreed. Laura and Holly couldn’t believe that Scott had taken the phone call from Heather and agreed it couldn’t be good. 

Esme let out a scream but quickly apologized to “Ace” in her locked room at Wyndemere. The door opened, and Elizabeth walked in. She announced that she was there to help Esme. She checked Esme’s vitals and told Esme that stress was bad for the baby. Elizabeth instructed Esme to take her pregnancy seriously and gave her some prenatal vitamins to take once a day. Esme begged Elizabeth to tell Nikolas to let her go.  Elizabeth said that living at Wyndemere was preferable to life behind bars at Pentonville, which is definitely where Esme would be headed if she were discovered.

After Elizabeth had gone, Esme wondered what her daddy would do. She had a vision of Ryan sitting on her bed, and she complained and argued about her situation. “Use the baby,” he said. He urged her to toss the vitamins out and refuse to take care of herself. Esme thought she could lose her leverage if she lost the baby, but Ryan assured her that the baby was her only leverage. Esme dumped most of the pills and figured that Elizabeth would bring her more. Downstairs, Nikolas left a phone message for Ava and told her he loved her. The doorbell rang, and Nikolas was irritated to see Victor standing there with all his luggage. Victor announced to Nikolas that tonight was the night he had decided to move in. Nikolas tried to tell him it wasn’t a good time, but Victor stated that there had been a development. He said he needed some extra security and he wanted to prepare the family for what was to come. Victor said that Nikolas and Spencer were the only ones he could trust, and he wanted Nikolas to “get his house in order.”

Victor poured drinks and handed Nikolas a glass. He told Nikolas that he would pick out his suite in the north tower. “No!” Nikolas shouted. He quickly told his uncle that the ongoing renovations were nowhere near complete and that Victor would have to stay in the south tower. Victor complained about the views in the south tower, left the room and closed the doors. “What the hell, Nikolas?” Elizabeth said. She wondered if Nikolas was trying to get caught. Elizabeth told Nikolas that Esme was doing well, even though she should have had prenatal care. Victor returned to the room and Elizabeth departed because being there with Victor obviously gave her the creeps.

Nikolas claimed that Elizabeth had shown up to talk because she’d had a rough time. Victor didn’t believe Nikolas and said that he was at least pleased to see Nikolas acting like a single man again. Victor then received a message and left to make a call. He was angry to hear that Holly had vanished.

Scott visited Heather, and she cried about Franco’s death. She said that Dante had stopped by to question her, so she knew that she was valuable. She added that she knew who had helped Anna to escape.  Heather wanted to make a deal with Scott.  He would help her get paroled from the prison and then she would sue Port Charles for millions claiming the prisoner transport crash had caused permanent damage to her neck.

Scott assured Heather that no judge would ever grant her release and that no one would ever take her seriously because she was a “crackpot.”  Heather implored him to think twice because she never forgot her friends, or her enemies.  “Neither do I,” Scott replied and he knocked on the door to be released.

Ava and Mac bumped into Dante at Spring Ridge when they arrived to see Ryan, and they gave Dante an update. Ava spotted Ryan and headed over to him. She told Ryan that Esme had been her attacker. “The audacity!” she exclaimed. She wondered if Ryan would like to help her get back at Esme for trying to take what was his.

Back at General Hospital, Robert tried to unhook his I.V. and other lines while T.J. sat with him. Robert was in a full-on panic because he had lost the necklace and was worried for Holly’s safety. T.J. told Robert that he couldn’t leave. Diane and Jordan arrived, and Jordan announced that some footage from Metro Court had been reviewed, and Holly appeared to be fine. She asked why Holly would do such a thing. Robert appeared to want to say something, but Jordan received a phone call and left. Diane surmised that Holly had stolen the necklace and drugged him. She added that she knew he was in trouble. Robert denied everything and Diane begged him not to let Holly drag him down with her.

In the car, Laura and Holly discussed her mother and the fact that Kevin was working. She thought that Holly’s memory would return, and she asked what agency Holly was working for. Holly responded that it was classified. Laura received a phone call from Jordan, but before she could tell Jordan who she was with, Jordan began to talk over the speakerphone. Jordan said that Robert had been attacked and that the attacker had the missing necklace in Robert’s briefcase. Laura realized what was happening but before she could react, Holly disconnected the call and held Laura at gunpoint.

Laura admitted that she had suspected all along that Holly and Deputy Mayor Ashby were on Victor’s payroll. When Holly told Laura to exit the freeway Laura refused to follow any of Holly’s commands.

Later, Holly and Laura were shown standing on the side of the road by an exit sign. While Holly held her gun in Laura’s direction, she grabbed Laura’s phone and called Kevin. She tossed the phone on the ground and ran. Laura picked up the phone and told Kevin where she was. She told Kevin that Holly had stolen her car and advised him to tell Jordan that Holly was armed and dangerous.

Update written by Shane

At the Metro Court, Sam and Dante meet with Alexis for lunch. Nina interrupts and asks Dante how worried Ava needs to be about Esme. Alexis is surprised to hear Esme is back in town, and of the theory that the attacks are connected to Trina’s trial. Nina pretends to be worried about Ava but it is clear she is looking out for number 1.  Since Ava is temporarily staying at her place, she feels she may be in dangerous.  Dante can only say the investigation is ongoing and suggests they stay vigilant.

After Nina walks off, Alexis turns the discussion to food, and what Sonny will be cooking for Thanksgiving. Dante says a feast from what he hears. They all plan to go to Sonny’s, but Sam and Dante are later going to the Quartermaines for pizza. Dante says his mom even invited Cody, but he doubts he’ll come. Dante says he will probably have to go down to the stables to coax him out. Sam seems surprised. Dante messages Brook Lynn again about her statement to help Chase. She tells him that she’s in a meeting at Kelly’s. Dante tells them duty calls and excuses himself.

Alone, Alexis asks what the face Sam made was about when Dante mentioned Cody. Sam reveals Cody dropped hints that Dante may have done something illegal as a child, and she thinks she should find out what it was. When Sam steps away, Alexis asks Nina why she’s so certain Esme could be the hook. Nina says Ava seems very concerned about her return. Later, Alexis calls the PCPD and leaves a message for Jordan. Because she has not received her exclusive that she was promised she is going ahead with the printing of the hook’s letter on the front page the following day and would like a comment from the commissioner.  At Kelly’s, Chase and Brook Lynn arrive and meet with Blaze and Linc, who has issues with Brook Lynn’s song. Blaze loves the song, but she feels she’s singing too much back up to Chase. Chase and Brook Lynn believe they can work this out. Linc agrees as he caresses Blaze and says she knows how to play nice. Brook Lynn and Chase see this blatant sexual harassment but manage to keep their cool. Brook Lynn suggests she and Linc grab some coffee and let Blaze and Chase talk.

Brook Lynn says, “It won’t be just me.” She points out all the instances recently where one woman came out publicly against someone, which results in more coming out, and all she has to do is light the match. She says fortunately she doesn’t have a singing career he can hang over her head to keep her quiet, and she is going to destroy him. Linc says, “Or, you could get your songs back.”

Dante sits down with Chase and asks why Blaze is in Port Charles. Chase reveals they are working on a song together. Dante explains he’s been leaving messages for Brook Lynn and came to track her down. Chase relays that she’s been working around the clock promoting him. Dante says, “With this new career of his, maybe she doesn’t have to write that letter.”

In Britt’s office, Cody finds her on the floor holding the necklace. The office is a mess, and he asks if someone broke in and tried to steal the necklace. She tells him no. He can see she’s upset and asks if he can help. Britt cries to Cody that when she found out her father died, she thought it was finally over. However, his reach extends beyond the grave and he’s still hurting her. She can’t believe she wasted so much time seeking his approval. He tells her if Faison didn’t appreciate her then that’s on him, and she is worth loving. She asks, “Even with what’s been passed down to me?”

Cody initially assumes she’s speaking of the necklace and suggests she can give it to him because it’s basically his anyways. She can’t believe she didn’t see this before and screams she wasn’t talking about the necklace. She thinks that’s all he wanted. She tells him if he wants it so bad take it and get out! She hands it to him.

As Britt opens the door and demands Cody leave, Robert is standing there with a cop. He has a warrant for the necklace and demands Cody hand it over. Cody hesitates. Robert explains some of the diamonds in it are possibly stolen, Cody continues to stand there motionless so Britt finally grabs the necklace and hands it over to Robert.  Robert and the officer leave.

Britt again demands Cody get out, but he refuses. He wants to know if she wasn’t talking about the necklace then what was she talking about? He apologizes for making a mistake, and she knows he has a habit of putting his foot in his mouth. He asks what it will take for her to give him the benefit of the doubt. She says, “More than I have to give.”

Obrecht arrives and says, “What is going on here?”  “Absolutely nothing,” Cody says as he exits. Obrecht asks what is going on, and Britt breaks down and cries “I’m sick.”

In the lobby of , the officer cuffs the briefcase with the necklace to Robert’s wrist. He reveals he’s going to turn it over to some WSB agents at the Metro Court. One of Victor’s men overhears this and calls Victor.Elsewhere, Michael and Willow arrive for her first chemo appointment. They run into Carly, and soon after TJ appears. Willow whisks TJ aside to talk to him about her pregnancy. While they are alone, Carly asks Michael how everything is going. Michael reveals Willow wants to find her birth parents. Carly is stunned and asks what changed her mind. Michael simply says with the baby coming, they thought it could be important to have all the medical information available to them.  He makes no mention of Willow’s leukemia to Carly.

Nearby, Willow admits to TJ that she feels like a coward not letting anyone know she’s sick. TJ assures her that she’s not a coward. TJ and Willow rejoin Carly and Michael. Carly asks TJ if he and Molly have plans for Thanksgiving. He explains Alexis is going to Sonny’s, but they thought that might be awkward. Carly is confused, so Michael tells her about Nina’s accusations about Willow and TJ having an affair. Carly is livid and storms off.

At Kelly’s Diner, Linc asked Brook Lynn to help him salvage his less than stellar reputation. In exchange, Linc said he would give back to Brook Lynn the remaining contents of her catalog. Brook Lynn was incredulous.  She couldn’t believe that Linc was now suggesting she agree to rehabilitate his reputation in return for the songs that he virtually stole from her.

Chase joined them, and he asked Brook Lynn directly if she was okay with whatever Linc had proposed. Brook Lynn hesitantly said that she and Linc were on good terms, and Linc left. Chase told Brook Lynn that he trusted her to do the right thing. Brook Lynn appeared no where near as certain as Chase was as they walked outside.

Earlier, Chase was surprised to learn that Dante had asked for Brook Lynn’s help in getting Chase reinstated as a detective. Chase pointedly asked Dante how long ago he had made the request and Dante told him it had been weeks. Chase wondered if Brook Lynn had ever intended to send a letter on his behalf to the review board. Dante told Chase not to simply assume the worst about Brook Lynn.

In Britt’s office at the hospital, Britt told Liesl that her Huntington’s disease had advanced. She told her Liesl that the specialist had given her between five to 15 years to live. Britt said that within a year, she might require around-the-clock care. Liesl said that they were both intelligent, talented doctors and that they would not let the disease win so easily.  But, Britt was not having it.  She told Liesl that she needed a mother, not a doctor.  Liesl said that she could do that, but she stated that Britt deserved a better mother.  They cried together.  Britt asked Liesl to go home to Scott.  But, Liesl couldn’t stand the thought of Britt being alone.

At Volonino’s Gym, Drew told Sonny that he was searching for Willow’s biological mother at the requested of Willow and Michael. Sonny shared that he had heard the failed merger between Aurora and ELQ had recently caused trouble between Drew and Carly. Drew seemed surprised when Sonny said that Carly had felt the need to tell Sonny about her relationship with Drew. Drew asked how Sonny had reacted, and Sonny recalled that he had told Carly that he was happy for her. “Well, that was nice of you to say. Did you mean it?” Drew asked. Sonny said that he had been sincere when he had wished Carly well, and he added that he only wanted what was best for Carly because she was Donna’s mother.

At the Metro Court restaurant, Carly and Nina bickered at each other over Nina’s misinterpretation of Carly’s visit to Brick’s room at the Metro Court. The argument grew ugly and at one point, Carly took a bowl of soup from Trish, a waitress who had walked by. Carly eventually returned the bowl to the waitress after Sonny and Drew appeared. Carly said that she had been tempted to throw the soup in Nina’s face, but she claimed she had refused because she had too much respect for the hotel and its staff.

Sonny convinced Nina to walk away. Afterwards, Carly was surprised when Drew said he would help Willow search for her birth mother. Carly had yet another flashback to months earlier when she had learned that Nina was Willow’s biological mother. Carly then told Drew that she would help with the search for Willow’s mom.

At Pier 55, Valentin was surprised to find Martin, who was still grieving the loss of Lucy. Martin said that Anna had murdered Lucy. Valentin swore that Martin was wrong about Anna, but Martin said that Valentin’s judgment was clouded by his love for Anna. Valentin offered sincere apologies to Martin, who added that he wished Lucy hadn’t gone to the pier on the night of the gunshot. Valentin clarified that there had been two shots fired instead of one. Martin wondered what Valentin’s point had been. “If Anna was the shooter, she wouldn’t need two shots, especially at close range,” Valentine reiterated.

Valentin told Martin to come with him because the two had work to do. “Go where?” Martin asked. “To find out what happened to Lucy,” Valentin answered.

In the restaurant at the Metro Court, Robert waited for his WSB contact to appear. Diane joined Robert, who shared that the briefcase that was handcuffed to him contained diamonds from the Ice Princess. Diane was intrigued with being so close to the famed Ice Princess. Holly joined them, and Robert introduced her to Diane. Robert ordered tequila shots for the table. Robert said that Holly was someone he trusted with his life. Holly said that she and Diane had both cheated death, and then excused herself for a moment. When Holly was away, Diane told Robert that she was lovely and said she could see why Robert was so fond of her.  Robert warned Diane that she could be duplicitous. Holly returned to the table and found a way to drug Robert without he or Diane noticing.  Robert wanted Holly to do a shot with him, but Holly claimed she had to watch her salt intake. Holly and Diane had a conversation, and Robert grew quiet. Diane asked Robert a question, and suddenly, Robert’s head fell to the table.

Diane was concerned about Robert. Holly claimed that he just wasn’t able to handle his liquor anymore. Robert appeared to have been drugged, but he said he needed to stay at Metro Court to wait for the WSB contact. Holly convinced Robert to leave with her.

After Robert and Holly left, Diane left a voice message for Robert. Diane shared that she hadn’t had a good feeling about Robert being alone with Holly. Diane hung up, and she was stunned when Robert stumbled off the elevator. He appeared to have been assaulted and the suitcase that had been cuffed to his wrist was gone.

Elsewhere, Holly opened the box in the suitcase that had contained the necklace. She pulled the necklace from the box and held it in her hands.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

[ Indistinct conversations in distance ]

[ Breathing sharply ]

[ Cellphone ringing ]

[ Panting ] Drew cain. Lauren:

Mr. Cain. Lauren hart. I’m a reporter from the aurora affiliate in tucson. Yeah, I’ve been expecting your call. I tracked down the last known location of the friends for peace and love commune. Fantastic. Great work. Yeah, unfortunately, that community pulled up stakes years ago, vanished into the mojave desert. Well, um… thank you for the update, lauren, but you got to keep searching, okay? Somebody somewhere, they’ve got to know something. They’ve got to remember willow. Let me know.

[ Sighs ] Sounds like you hit a dead end. Yeah. It’s starting to seem, uh, impossible, actually. What do you mean? I’m looking for somebody — somebody, anyone that remembers willow when she was kali miller. Can’t you ask willow? Nah, it’s not… it’s not a question that she can answer. I’m, uh… I’m looking for her biological mother. Carly. Nina. Care to see the cocktail menu? I recommend the kir royale. No, just biding my time till my room is ready. You’re gonna need to run that by me one more time. What letter was brook lynn supposed to write? Wait, you don’t now? I don’t know what?

[ Indistinct conversations ] Look, I know you want to be a cop again, so I mentioned to brook lynn that the civilian complaint review board might be open to reinstating you if she wrote a letter kind of explaining what happened with the incidents. Punching valentin and linc. Right. Like, if she told them that you were defending her, if she kind of put some context around what happened, they would be open to reinstating you, perhaps. When did you suggest this to her? I don’t know. A few weeks ago. But, look, she’s busy, so… yeah, maybe. Brook lynn: Let me get this straight. You’re offering to return my music, the songs that I wrote from my heart that you’ve been profiting off of selling as — as commercial jingles for dog food and paper towel commercials? Those commercial tunes are non-negotiable. They’re sold forever. But the rest of your songbook can be yours. I see. As long as I keep my mouth shut about all those women that you sexually harassed, including me? Well, that’s a first. My mother is speechless.

[ Chuckles ] This isn’t funny, britta. Wh– when you say you’re sick, do you mean the huntington’s disease has started to progress? We’ve known for over a year now that I have the marker. Still, to hear the doctor tell me that it’s no longer theoretical, that the disease is affecting me… it was pretty shocking. But you can’t deny the truth. Then we’ll — then, uh, we’ll get a second opinion and a third. T-there’s a specialty clinic in zurich. I’ll fly you there. Mother, this isn’t a matter of opinion. It’s a fact. The symptoms have started… and they’re not going away. It’s here to stay.

[ Buoy bell ringing, waves crashing ] Martin. What are you doing here? I’m missing lucy. What’s with the cake? Once upon a time, I told her how much I loved hummingbird cake, how hard it was to find in upstate new york. So she threw herself into learning how to bake one. That’s thoughtful. Yes and no. Touch and go there for a while. Some of them were just dreadful.

[ Chuckles ] But she never gave up. And, eventually… she perfected it. So in answer to your question, that’s what I’m doing here — trying to remember, that your girlfriend murdered mine. Robert scorpio. May I finally buy you that drink, or are you waiting for somebody? Yes, yes, yes, and…yes.

[ Laughs ] Please, have a seat. Uh… oh, my. I’m waiting for my contact from the wsb to come and relieve me of this. You must have some very important papers in that. Oh, goodness. You ever hear of a kid’s game called “rock, paper, scissors”? Rochambeau. Yep. Um… paper covers rock, rock breaks scissors, scissors cut paper. But what does that have to do with that? Well, diamonds, they cut anything. You’ve got diamonds in that —

[ Whispers ] You’ve got diamonds in that case? Is that why you’re handcuffed to it? Not just any diamonds. You ever hear of the ice princess? You have the wrong idea. Damn it! You can’t talk your way out of this, kid! Yes, I’m doing victor’s bidding!


Willow’s biological mother? Why are you interested in finding her? Willow’s actually looking for her biological father as well, uh… for her own reasons. Okay, so that’s none of my business, is that what you’re saying? I’m not trying to be mysterious about the whole thing. I mean, everybody knows it’s no secret willow was raised on a commune by a woman she believed to be her mother, right? Lorraine miller, A.K.A. Harmony. The way that willow explained it to me is that she knew that harmony wasn’t the best parent, but she was still her mom, and that gave her life a little bit of structure. Now her life is just… one big mystery, so she’s made the decision to try and track down her birth parents. Said that I would help, for willow. And for your son. I’ll be right over here. Let me know when that room’s ready. Carly, carly, you’re s– you’re staying here in my hotel? I’m surprised you don’t know. I booked the honeymoon suite. Honeymoon? Yeah. Only the best. Brick’s on his way. And I’m sure you’d love to know he’s gonna stay the night. Oh, you’ve spoken to sonny, have you? Yeah, I spoke to sonny, and you and I need to have a little chat. No, I don’t think it’s necessary for us to have a little chat, carly. We need to get a few things straight before you tell any more lies about me and my family. Look, um, maybe she doesn’t want to get your hopes up, man. Maybe that’s why she didn’t tell you about writing the letter. Yeah, that’s one explanation. Maybe she was waiting for the right time. Although, uh, time is of the essence, because the review board meets every quarter and the next meeting is, well, it’s next week. Does brook lynn know? Yeah, as far as I know. I mean, I-I feel like I tried to convey that to her, yeah. Which makes me wonder if she changed her mind about sending the letter, or ever intended to send one at all. You’re entitled to your opinion. Then, so am I. We don’t live in a corporate world with hr departments. We’re artists. We live by a different set of rules. Oh, please. Don’t give me that tired old line. We’re both adults here, and what we’re talking about is a “he-said, she-said” situation, and in those situations, no one usually wins, which is why my solution benefits us both. Once you sign an nda, I’ll continue to develop blaze, and you can focus on making chase the next big thing. You can hear him perform your music the way you always dreamed it to be. Now… do we have a deal? Or don’t we? I know that you need somebody to blame for lucy’s disappearance, but I’m telling you, you’re wrong about anna.

[ Scoffs ] Am I, hmm? In spite of all that evidence, the drone footage of anna shooting lucy. It was enough for the police, enough for commissioner ashford to have anna arrested, arraigned. And let’s not forget when her prison transport miraculously crashes on the way to pentonville, what does she do? She escapes. Well, forgive me, valentin. I’ve been around enough courtrooms to know innocent people don’t run away. They do if they’ve been framed. If you’re gonna start singing that old song, I’m not — listen to me. She wasn’t just thinking about herself when she crawled out of that prison van. She wanted to find lucy, hopefully alive, and bring her home. She wanted to identify the real perpetrator. More than anything, she wants to make sure that justice is served. That’s why I’m down on the pier. I’m doing my part to help anna by retracing the steps of whoever the real shooter is. Do you hear yourself? You’re in love with the woman. Your judgment’s questionable at best. Hell, they’ve got video, for god’s sakes. Even your own father thinks she did it. That’s because it’s in victor’s best interest that the world thinks that anna is guilty. How? Are you gonna make a wish or what? For lucy. For lucy.

[ Blows ] And I hope your wish comes true, marty. I really do. It’s me. Robert’s in the metro court restaurant with the briefcase handcuffed to his wrist. I understand. We can’t let robert hand off the briefcase to the wsb. Yes, victor, I know. If the ice princess falls into the hands of the wsb, then ethan pays with his life, I know. Okay, uh, but you better get that to me soon. That’s what I need to get the diamond. Sooner rather than later.

Everyone has heard of the ice princess. It’s the stuff of legend. There’s a necklace in this case made from diamonds taken from the ice princess. Oh. May I have a look? Just a little one? I won’t tell anyone. Absolutely not. The less you know about this, the better.

[ Sighs ] Robert, mind if I join you? Have a seat. Uh, diane miller, attorney extraordinaire and a frequent opponent in court, meet holly sutton, ex-wife, and a woman I trust with my life.


[Phone vibrating]

[Elevator music plays]

[Music gets louder] And tonight’s winning numbers are 18, 18 55, 39, 71, and 43 we won! Yes! Noooo… noooo… noooo… quick, the quicker picker upper! Bounty picks up messes quicker and each sheet is 2x more absorbent, so you can use less. I’ll hold onto that. Bounty, the quicker picker upper. Diane miller. That name sounds familiar. Didn’t you just… cheat death?

[ Laughs ] Yes. Yes, I did. And I think that’s one thing you and I have in common. Yes, but make that two, because clearly we’re both quite fond of this chap, even if he is a little paranoid. I’m not paranoid, just cautious. Nothing’s gonna happen in the middle of a restaurant. Um, if you’ll excuse me, I’m just gonna go powder my nose. Ooh, why don’t you order a round of tequila shots on me for old time’s sake? Okay. She’s lovely. I understand why you fell so hard for her back in the day. Yeah, well, don’t be fooled. She can be quite lethal. I guess it’s a combination I find irresistible. Oh, trish, a round of tequila shots for the table here, and, um, something off the top shelf, I think? Okay, coming right up. Thank you.

[ Chuckles ] Have you got it? Yeah, just what you asked for. This should do the trick. You and brook lynn are both my friends. The last thing I wanted to do was cause trouble for you two. Well, I-I appreciate your honesty, dante. I just wish brook lynn would have done the same and told me about the letter. Okay, but don’t go dredging up trouble like that. You know she cares about you. I’m sure she’s been meaning to tell you, but… yeah, I know. Show biz always just seems to get in the way.

[ Sighs ] Yeah. Sam says the same thing to me about police work. I’m offering you what you’ve been asking me for months — ownership of your songs, your music, your way. With the bonus, they’ll be sung by the guy who rocks your world. Tell me that’s not a win-win situation for everyone. Tell it to blaze and to the next girl who comes off of a flight from the midwest with her own artistic dreams, but who has the unfortunate luck of meeting you as her first contact in the music business. Yeah, I’ve met a bunch of those women. They all come here with their eyes wide open.

[ Scoffs ] I’m just giving them what they want. And you’re just gonna keep treating all those future women the same way you treated me as long as I keep my mouth shut. Did I say that? No, no, brookie, you misunderstand me. I don’t want your silence. You don’t? Isn’t that the whole point of this deal that you’re offering? To close this little deal of ours, I’m gonna need much more. Time is of the essence. As it happens, there’s a conference taking place in toronto and one of the leading experts on huntington’s is attending. Dr. Talone? You know her name? Yeah. Thanks to austin, I was examined by dr. Talone earlier today. And? And it turns out while I was on the run with dear old dad and serving time in prison, I was experiencing stage 1 huntington’s without even knowing it. What I thought was just fear and anxiety was the opening stages of the disease. And now I have progressed to stage 3. I — I-I just wish you told me you were seeing dr. Talone so I could have been there to support you. Well, thank you, mother, but austin was there. He’s become a really good friend to me. I’m glad you weren’t alone. Was dr. Talone able to give you a prognosis? Mm-hmm. Anywhere from 5 to 15 years.

[ Chuckles ] Well, you must be so relieved, britta. It’s not all good. Oh. Dr. Talone said, being realistic, a year and a half from now, I could be in assisted living, requiring full-time care. O-okay. Okay. Um… now that we have your prognosis, w-we can begin experimental treatments. We will — we will engage a nutritionist, do whatever it takes. Stop. Please, I don’t need a doctor. I need a mom.

[ Both crying ] And that, you shall always have. Sonny, you’re still here. You know, I feel — I just — I’m curious why willow feels the need to search for her birth mother when she didn’t want to be any part of her life at all. Yeah, I mean, that’s true. Willow felt like that. Right? Yeah. But now that she’s pregnant, I think the doctors would use any kind of family history that they can get their hands on. Medically speaking, I think that would help. I’m also interested in why michael wouldn’t come to me to, you know, help him look for willow’s parents. And he — he — he comes to you, like he’s comfortable asking you for help. Sonny, michael’s my family, too. Yeah. And we’re business partners. I mean, that is if the elq and aurora merger had gone through. The merger that didn’t happen. I hear it caused problems between you and…my ex. I don’t need you, carly, to tell me that I misinterpreted some things. Misinterpreted, my ass. You saw what you wanted to see, and you couldn’t wait to accuse willow of cheating on michael. I apologized to willow, okay? And you know what america’s sweetheart said in return? And I quote, “drop dead.”

[ Chuckles ] Of course you think that’s funny. I don’t think it’s funny. Willow has been struggling since her pregnancy began, and your kind of gossip isn’t helping. But you don’t give a damn, do you? No, I was thinking of wiley growing up in a broken home. Really? Because the only home-wrecker I know is standing right in front of me.


I don’t care about sonny. You’re welcome to him. And you can spread whatever malicious lies you want about me and brick, I could not care less. You want to come at me? Bring it on. But when you go after my son and his family, don’t pretend that you’re thinking about wiley, because you’re looking for payback because they don’t want someone like you around their son. How’s that working for you, nina? Are you spending any time with wiley? When I brought josslyn back to the house the other night, you were there. Um, and it — it’s no surprise. Look, you were — you weren’t there for a family visit, and — and carly confirmed as much today. Carly told you about us? I know you got to be discreet because of the, uh, you know, trading issues and all that, but, carly, I don’t know why, but she had the need to tell me, and she pretty much, you know, told me all about you guys. Huh. Yeah. She did, huh? Mm-hmm. Carly, well, honest to a fault, huh? Well, I don’t know anybody that knows carly would describe her as “honest to a fault.” Right. So after she told you about us, what, uh… I mean, how’d you react? Well, you know, with ex-spouses, I-it takes a little while to find your way forward with each other. So I just told her that you’re not a threat to me and I’m — and I’m happy for her. Well, that was nice of you to say. Do you mean it? Sam makes a good point. If and when I’m lucky enough to wear the badge again, the last thing I want to do is take work home with me. Yeah, brook lynn wouldn’t like that any more than you like her keeping things from you. I mean, maybe she’s just being careful not to make things more complicated by writing the letter. Assuming I agree to keep my mouth shut about what a miserable misogynist you are — unfortunately, I know from firsthand experience that you do, in fact, sexually harass women — what else could you possibly want? Like I said, I’m not interested in your silence. I’m looking for a different narrative. Because like you said, we’ve worked together in the past. You’re uniquely qualified to tell the world what kind of man I am.

[ Scoffs ] I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry. You can’t be serious. You want me to paint a good picture of you? In every interview you give, in every pr release you write, you’ll sing my praises. Ooh, poor word choice, ’cause you can’t sing now, can you? All I’m asking is that you speak from your heart. Oh, well, my heart says that you are a loathsome dirtbag who preys on vulnerable women. You mean something like that? Alright, fine, don’t speak from your heart, speak from your head. Because at the end of the day, you know you’re not gonna get a better deal than this. All you have to do is swallow your pride and paint a picture of me that’s so warm and winning, that it’ll counter any false accusations that are already out there… or those yet to come, like from blaze or anyone else. So you’re saying, think defensively, because if there’s a bad narrative about you, I could be dragged down with you? You have a reputation for being strong, brook lynn. Some might even say “feisty.” So if you go on the record in my favor, you’ll be extra motivated to help me nip in the bud any outrageous complaints about my less than gentlemanly behavior. Otherwise, you look like a traitor to your sisters, or just a sellout who only cares about herself. Make no mistake, linc, I see you for exactly who you are. Great. Then this is a no-brainer, right? If you really believe in chase, you can go this extra mile, can’t you? I ordered those shots for the two of you to enjoy. What are you waiting for? Well, I have just come from an extended stay at general hospital, so thank you, but my doctors put the kibosh on alcohol for the next three weeks. Me, I’m just a gentleman awaiting your return. Oh, well, wait no more. Cheers. Oh. Your turn, robert. Look, I know you’ve got a few holes in your memory over the last couple of years, but surely you haven’t forgotten our ritual. Oh, you’re absolutely right. Well, it’s not too late to remedy. Go on. You see, there’s only one way to drink a tequila shot. I was on this cruise once, and this rather loud-mouthed woman who lived in orange county taught me a phrase I’ve never forgotten. Ahh. Now, lick it. Mm. Slam it. Ahh. Suck it. Oh.

[ Laughter ] Bleh. Mm. I still got it, kid.

[ Laughing ] You certainly do.


I wouldn’t say I’m happy for carly if I didn’t really mean it. No, I don’t mean to be questioning your word. It’s just that I also know that you and carly obviously had a very long, complicated history, so… wouldn’t be a huge surprise if you had mixed emotions about her moving on. Like you have mixed emotions about sam and dante living together? Alright, I guess I walked right into that one. Carly’s always gonna be donna’s mother, and I only want what’s best for her. Carly, you can’t just waltz in here insulting me like you used to. Have you forgotten that you don’t own this hotel anymore? I do. Have you really looked around? I not only hired a new chef, but I’ve added subtle but significant touches to every aspect of this hotel. It’s thriving, from the restaurant to the spa. But I wouldn’t expect you to appreciate such things, hm? Oh, trish, come here. Please, let me see this. No. P– no, carly! Put that down! Hey. I want to see for myself the subtle changes you’ve made. Now this, this looks like soup. No, carly, it’s potage with a dollop of white truffle cream, so put it back. Do you want it? Because you can have it. Brook lynn wants you to have it all, man. She wants you to have the star on your door, the badge on your chest, everything, okay? I — I should have kept my mouth shut. No, I’m happy you told me about the letter, and I’m just gonna have to trust that brook lynn, you know, she knows the right thing to say and she knows the right time to send it. You bastard. Here I thought you couldn’t sink any lower. Now you want me to cover for you? I’m just asking you to present a counter-narrative. I don’t care how you spin this. I’m not gonna do it. Your choice, but then my offer goes away, and all you have left of your precious songs is more dog food jingles and a singing cop without a badge or a future. Hey, what happened to our ritual? I know, I know. But times change, and I have to limit my salt intake. But it’s your turn. Go on. No, I — I think I’ve had enough. Okay, you’re my witness. Excuse me? Well, I noticed it as soon as I got back to port charles. Our dashing and daring aussie is in a bit of a rut. I mean, the right diet, the right exercise, a straight and narrow job, even got the right friends. Personally, I think he needs to indulge in a few more unpredictable evenings like tonight, and even with a hint of danger or a few acquaintances that are slightly unreliable? Such as? My english accent always fools people into thinking that I am posh and proper.

[ Chuckles ] But, ms. Miller, I have never claimed to be respectable.

[ Chuckles ] Have you? Well, first off, call me diane, please. And second, I was involved with someone who worked for the mob, so there are a few people out there who would say I was less than respectable. But I think robert deserves a say in this, hm?

Damn, man. I got to go. Duty calls. Alright, get out of here. But, hey, I’m glad we had this talk. Yeah? Are you sure about that? Because I don’t know. Maybe you’re lying to me and you’re not happy I brought all this up. No, you just being a true friend to me and brook lynn. Alright, good luck. Yeah, see you. I’ll see you around. I’m so sorry, britta. It’s my natural instinct to fix something, not — not necessarily to nurture it. My training, my — my medical knowledge, that — that comes so easily to me. But being a good mutter? I was given two children to love, and twice, I’ve failed. You deserve so much better, liebchen. You deserve a mutter who knows how to say and do all the right things, not me. Not the woman whose obsession with cesar faison did this to you! Okay. Okay, mother. Please stop. My huntington’s disease isn’t your fault. It’s not. And as much as I hate to admit it, it’s not my father’s fault, either. Sure, I inherited it from him, but he inherited it, too. It’s just the luck of the genetic draw. No, I won’t let it win that easily. We’re both doctors, intelligent and well-trained. We have to fight back. We can’t let it win this easily. There is something I need you to do. Of course. Anything. Go home to scott. Absolutely not. I’m asking a favor, please. You unexpectedly found love at this stage in your life with scott, and I want you to embrace that, okay? Just like in this moment, I need to embrace being alone. Well, either you’re all in or — is everything okay over here? Your conversation looked pretty intense. We’re just getting the details of our agreement nailed down. Right, brook lynn? I wasn’t talking to you, linc. I was asking my manager. Are you okay with his terms? Well…so much for the hummingbird cake. I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel any better. Lucy’s still gone. Anna’s still out there on her own. Yeah, well, at least you know she’s alive. I’ve got people offering unsolicited advice about how unless and until they find a body, there’s reason to hope. It’s getting harder and harder to keep hoping. Guess I just miss her too much. I’m sorry, marty. I am. Yeah, so am I. If only she hadn’t come down here the night that shot was fired. Two shots. There were two shots fired, weren’t there? What’s your point? Why were there two shots? I mean, if anna was the shooter, she wouldn’t need two, especially at close range. In the heat of the moment, nobody’s perfect. No, no, no. Think about it. The police only found one bullet casing from anna’s gun. The second casing was never found. Yeah. So? So I don’t know. But if I figure it out, that’s how I’m going to save anna. Robert? Robert? Sh-should we call an ambulance? An ambulance? No, he’s just passed out after doing a shot. I guess it’s true. We’re not as young as we used to be. I’m gonna order him some black coffee.

[ Groans ] I-I-I’m okay. I’m — I’m — I’m okay. You’re hardly okay after one shot doing you in like this. Come on, I’m gonna take you downstairs and let you sleep it off. Wait a minute. I-I — I got to wait for my contact. He’ll be here any minute. No, you’re in no shape to do any business. Um, could you do us a favor? Could you wait here for robert’s contact and then, uh, just direct them to robert’s room? I still think he needs black coffee. Yeah — oh, no, I-I know what he needs. You’re so good to me, honeybunch. Oh, I know when — when he calls me honeybunch, then I know he needs a nap.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, where are we going? I don’t feel…


I hate to do this to you,but I’ve got to leave. So if someone shows up asking for either robert scorpio or a man with a briefcase, would you please have them call the front desk and ask for robert’s room? Of course. I’ll take care of it. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. Diane, diane, diane, nice to see you up and about. Oh, it’s nice to be up and about. Yeah. Hey, nina. Hi, diane. All right, well, I’m gonna — I’m gonna call it a night. Okay. Good to see you. See you. Hey, hey, hey, hey. Just — you just got to let it go. Yeah, I know. I’m trying. But…someone needs to tell carly that. You sound surprised that I’m helping willow find her birth parents. You’re — you’re not opposed, are you? Oh, my god, it’s true. Nina’s willow’s mother. I heard from the lab. And? Nina’s not willow’s mother. No, no, I-I have no objection. I just think it’s gonna be like finding a needle in a haystack, and you’re gonna need all the help you can get. Sounds like you have someone in mind. Yeah. You’re looking at her. Yes, everything is very clear to me now. You and me, we’re good. Terrific. I knew I could count on you, brookie. Now to let blaze in on the good news. You know, it’s not too late. For what? I trust you to do the right thing for both of us. You know that, don’t you? I can’t leave you at a time like this. I mean it, mother. I need some time alone to…gather my thoughts. From the time you were tested… we’ve known that huntington’s disease would be a — a part of your life. But there was no way to know the timetable. It could have been decades before you showed symptoms. But now that is happening… well… if you need a mom, then I need my daughter more than ever, please.

[ Sobs ] All gone, just like lucy. Oh, no, not gone, just missing. There’s a big difference. Anna was set up to take the fall. Come on, marty, we got work to do. And where are we going? To find out what really happened to lucy. Robert, hi. It’s diane. Listen, I don’t feel right about leaving you alone with holly. I’ve got a bad feeling about all of this. So would you please call me when you get this? Robert! Oh, my god, what happened to you?

General Hospital Updates

GH logo

Update written by Shane

At Pozzulo’s, Sonny continued to try to reach Dex by phone. He left a voicemail demanding that Dex call him. Brick arrived and told Sonny that he had also been unable to locate Dex. Sonny informed Brick that he was not cool with Carly visiting Brick’s hotel room, and Brick assured him that he would never disrespect Sonny. He added that he would tell Sonny if he insisted but to do so would be to violate Carly’s trust. Sonny’s guard came to tell him a supplier needed to speak with him. Brick was left alone in Sonny’s office.

After finishing up a run, Drew ran into Carly and Carly told him that they still needed to be super careful.  She informed him that Josslyn had seen them kissing, but she told Drew that Josslyn could be trusted. Drew agreed and then told Carly that he was trying to locate Willow’s birth parents or even possibly some family members.  Carly looked stunned for obvious reasons.

Olivia arrived in the plaza and greeted them but Carly quickly made her exit when she received a message from Brick. He told her that Sonny was aware that they had met, and Sonny had had some wild ideas.

In Josslyn’s dorm room, Dex awoke and grabbed a sleeping Josslyn’s hand as she slept in a chair next to the bed. She opened her eyes and checked his fever, which she said had broken. Dex said that he felt better, but he groaned in pain when he began to move. She handed him a bottle of water and urged him to stay hydrated. Dex asked her to get him some clothes so that he could leave. Josslyn reminded him that he couldn’t walk, let alone stand, but Dex struggled as he got out of the bed and stood up by himself. Josslyn thought that Dex was too weak to leave, but he didn’t want to take a chance of her getting into trouble with all the people around the dorm.

Sonny returned to his office, and Brick told him that he wouldn’t disclose discussions that were about private matters. There was a knock at the door, it was Carly. She announced that she’d heard that Sonny had gotten the wrong idea about her meeting with Brick, and said she was there to set him straight. Carly told Sonny that the entire matter was none of his business, and Sonny looked toward Brick, who stated that Sonny had been curious. Carly told Sonny that she and Drew were seeing each other but that had to keep it quiet for the time being. She claimed that she had gone to Brick and asked him to conceal any digital footprint that she and Drew might have left.

Sonny asked Brick to leave him and Carly alone, and Brick left. Sonny told Carly that he was happy for her. Carly said she didn’t want Sonny getting the wrong idea, and he disclosed that Nina had been the one to inform him that Carly had gone into Brick’s hotel room. Carly was not at all surprised, and she noted that it was time for Nina to get a life and stay out of hers.

Back at the dorms, Josslyn returned with clothing for Dex. She told him he could not take the antibiotics without food and grabbed a granola bar for him. Dex was surprised to see a pair of socks in the bag, and Josslyn explained that she wouldn’t dig through his bloody things for the pair he’d been wearing. He was unable to put them on himself, but Josslyn helped him. He also asked for help with his pants, and she slid them over his legs. He managed to get out of bed and pull them up himself. Josslyn packed a duffle bag of odds and ends for him to carry to avoid suspicion and told him she’d burn all the bloody clothing and rags in the fire pit at home.

Dex said that she had gone through an awful lot of trouble for him.  Josslyn agreed. Suddenly, Dex grabbed her, and they began to kiss passionately. “Damn!” Dex muttered when they finally separated. He told her that wasn’t supposed to have happened. “Well, it did!” Josslyn replied. She smiled broadly as Dex left.

At General Hospital, Austin informed Britt that Dr. Talone, a leading specialist in her field, was on the way. Britt appreciated Austin’s help, and while he didn’t have to stay, she admitted she’d like his moral support. When the doctor arrived, they all sat down. Britt admitted to a family history and symptoms as the reason for her pursuing Huntington’s disease further. She admitted to having given a false name with incomplete information when she’d had the hospital visit while on the run.

The doctor suspected that Britt could be further along than originally thought. She explained that the symptoms could have been masked by her carpal tunnel syndrome. Austin urged Britt to be honest, and she admitted to various symptoms such as tremors and irritability. Dr. Talone then stated that she wanted to run more tests. Once Dr. Talone left, Britt and Austin joked about the doctor’s lack of bedside manner and made a comparison to Britt.

Britt thanked Austin for treating her no differently. She admitted that her disease was easier to discuss with someone she didn’t know well because she wanted her loved ones to remember her and not her disease. She stated that she knew how her story would end. The doctor returned and announced that Britt had Stage 3 Huntington’s. Austin grabbed Britt’s arm as the doctor explained that while it was probably a low to intermediate stage, the symptoms would increase, including those of cognitive impairment. She thought that Britt could survive another five to 15 years, although she could need full-time care in as little as 18 months.

Scott met with Cody and sat down with him at a table in Metro Court. Cody said that he wanted legal advice because he might be coming into an “absurd amount of money.” Scott suggested that it was illegal, but Cody assured him it wasn’t. Cody told Scott about the necklace that belonged to either the heirs of Faison or those of Taub. Scott had advice for Cody. “Run for the hills!” he exclaimed. Scott said that the diamonds being cut from the Ice Princess were cursed. 

At Pier 55, Robert shouted at Holly. He yelled that he had baited her with a phony address for Anna, and Agent Whitten had appeared there after an anonymous tip from Holly. “How long have you been working with Victor?” he demanded to know. Holly admitted the truth, although she insisted it was not by choice. She grew hysterical and informed him that he would be a target if she told him anything. Robert replied that everyone was a target with Victor around, and he wanted to hear all of it.

Holly told Robert of her lies, she remembered the past two years. She took a deep breath and explained that she had been investigating Rudge and his casino, and she’d heard that he’d been working with Victor. She went on to say that her cover had been blown, and she’d been taken captive. She recalled being able to phone Robert for help, and he remembered the call. She said that Victor had threatened her, and he’d forced her to watch as he killed her sister, Paloma.

Robert recalled Paloma’s body being found on the casino grounds. He noted that she’d resembled Holly. Holly recounted that Paloma had been wearing Holly’s wedding ring, and dental records had been falsified. She continued that she’d been moved from Crete to somewhere else and then to Port Charles. She explained that Anna had been in the way of Victor’s plans, and she had also been ordered to distract Robert. Holly admitted to being the one to have shot Lucy, although she maintained that she’d used one rubber bullet. She added that a second bullet had been fired into the water, leaving behind residue and casings.

Holly assured Robert that Lucy wasn’t dead, and he was skeptical. She said that Victor had never wanted to hurt Lucy. She explained that she had been wearing prosthetics when she’d committed the shooting, in order to resemble Anna. She said that Victor’s guards had retrieved Lucy from the water. She told Robert that  Victor couldn’t know that she’d told Robert anything, or her son Ethan would be in danger.

In Sonny’s office, Carly finished rebuking Sonny when Brick returned with Dex. Carly hastily departed. “Where the hell have you been?” Sonny asked. Dex told him about the bullet graze, how he’d been lying low and lost his phone. Brick and Sonny exchanged looks. They agreed it was all less than professional, but Dex insisted he could be counted on.

As Josslyn packed away all the bloody clothing and bandages, Carly arrived and announced that she’d seen Dex in Sonny’s office. Josslyn was annoyed, but Carly reminded her that Dex was working for Sonny of his own volition and it was his choice to continue to do so. Carly wondered if Josslyn would even see Dex again. Josslyn announced that she needed to get to the fire pit.

After Dr. Talone left Britt’s office, Britt told Austin that she wanted to be alone. She closed the door and wandered around. She picked up her diploma and her business card. Her quiet weeping turned into rage as she threw things and swiped the items off her desk with a vengeance. She looked at her trembling hand and sobbed. She picked up the necklace from the floor just as Cody knocked on the door.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

All right. No sign of linc or blaze. Linc said there were some issues with the song, a song that I wrote. Did he say what those issues — does it matter? I’m not taking notes on a love song from a perv whose idea of romance is plying women with booze and sticking his tongue down their throat. Did he try that with you? Of course he tried it. Fortunately for me, I have an excellent sense of communication and delivered a clear and concise message with my knee. What a sleaze. You know, I can’t wait to ruin him. Expose him for the predator that he is. Remember, no punching. Yeah, I’m not making any promises. No, it was very subtle, but you could tell none of the furniture was where it was supposed to be. Oh, no. The boys were — were pulling a full-on coup. No, and scout refused to spy for us. I even tried to get her to be our ci. She wasn’t, uh, too interested in that. Can’t imagine why. Mm. They’re basically on a power play all the time. It’s three on two. Mm-hmm. Yes. We’re — we’re outmatched. In any case, I’m glad that we have this opportunity to get together ’cause we’re all so busy, right? Mom… I’m not gonna ask any questions about the hook killing thing, and I’m not gonna ask you anything about the investigations about your pcpd, present or past. Okay, good. So… great. I’m sorry to interrupt. I’m so sorry. Uh, hello, alexis, sam. Nina. Nina, is everything okay? Uh [Sighs] That depends. Dante, I will not ask for any details about the case. I just need to know this — how worried does ava need to be about esme prince? Are you all right? Uh, did someone break in and try and steal the necklace? What? No. Okay. So… you want to tell me what happened? There’s no point getting into it. Just humor me. Pretend that I’m useful. Please…let me help. Hey, willow. You okay? We’re early, that’s all. Can we wait down here? Yeah, if you want. I don’t want to wait by the chemo treatment room. I know it’s silly. No, not at all. Whatever makes you comfortable, that is what we’re going to do. Hey! Hey, guys. What are you doing here? You know [Sighs] I’m beginning to wonder if robert is quite as trusting as you led me to believe. I’ve done everything I can to convince robert that I have no memory of the last two years. And as far as I can tell, he completely believes me. Stop it! Stop lying to me, holly.


Esme has been seen in town, right? And didn’t she attack elizabeth baldwin? Really? I didn’t know that. Uh…y-yes. Um, but elizabeth is — is doing fine. But if esme is behind these hook attacks, dante, that would make sense, right? Because it fits in with the pcpd’s theory that these attacks are connected to trina robinson’s trial. It wouldn’t be the first time esme went after trina. I mean, given the victims… yes. Starting with ava… …who was a mentor to trina — or is a mentor — is that correct? Yeah. Right? And diane — she defended and represented trina. And diane also told me that oz haggerty sold esme the phone that she used to record josslyn and cameron. Wow. That’s right. And guess what — elizabeth is cameron’s mother, right? So she would be targeted, too. Annnd the investigation is ongoing. Okay, okay. Can you at least tell me this — is ava safe? Or should I expect esme to be showing up at my door with a giant hook? No, I — all I can suggest is that you stay vigilant. But, yeah, you go ahead and live your lives. Okay, dante, okay. I’m sorry again for interrupting. No worries. That’s okay. Have a great night. You, too. You, too. The investigation is ongoing. Got it. It’s not that I don’t like your song, brook lynn, I do. What an honor. I mean, the lyrics? Terrific. But the arrangement… I’m not singing backup for chase. Look, no one’s asking you to. The song is perfectly balanced. Look, each of you, both you and chase, get a solo verse before singing the chorus and a third verse together. When we do sing together, I’m always the melody while his part really shows off his range. My part is… it’s a little boring. It’s an excellent point, babe. Blaze deserves her time to shine. This sounds like a rehearsal issue. Okay, look, this is a collaboration. We communicate, and we fix it. After all, we’re on the same side, right? I just want the song to be good. Well, we can certainly figure out a way for this song to showcase us both. Linc: I’m sure we can work something out. Blaze knows how to play nice. Don’t you, babe? Sorry, I’m just, uh… going through a tough time.

[ Sighs lightly ] Yeah, um, you know, I’ve — I’ve had a few of those.

[ Chuckling ] You know what’s funny? My father…

[ Voice breaking ] When he died, I thought… “it’s over.”

[ Chuckles ] “I’m finally done.”

[ Chuckles ] Little did I know the reach that man had. You know, his brain is, like, in a jar in the wsb somewhere? And his body is literally in the wind.

[ Sniffles ] We scattered his ashes, and now a man who spent his life trying to destroy the world is spending eternity polluting it. He’s dead and gone, and he’s still hurting me. And I wasted so much of my life striving for his approval. But no matter how much I accomplished, it was never going to happen. Hey, he must have been delusional to not see how great you are. Yeah, maybe he was. Hey, that’s the spirit, you know? If your old man can’t appreciate you, that’s on him — that’s not on you. Is it really that easy for you?

[ Chuckles ] You know, kind of. Honestly, I wasn’t very close with my family, you know? My mom, who — the woman I thought was my mom, she had to work to — just to put food on the table. So she didn’t really have time for me, you know? It was, uh — it was only, uh, if I outgrew my sneakers or to tell me I wasn’t allowed to play hockey ’cause she couldn’t afford the pads.

[ Chuckles ] Thanks, but… it’s not the same. No, I-I — I know — I know it’s not the same, but I-I know what it feels like to be overlooked, you know, to feel like you’re a burden. You’re not. [ Sighs ] Worth loving? Hey, you… …are definitely worth loving. Even that’s what’s been passed down to me? For god’s sake, victor. You’re the only person I’m not lying to. I’m completely betraying robert, my friends, probably several countries, because you’re holding my son ethan’s life in your hands. I have worked too hard, come too far for… one more life means nothing to me. I will kill luke’s son as easily as I killed luke himself. Though perhaps not quite as quickly as I killed your sister, paloma. Believe me, you don’t have to remind me of everything that you’ve already taken from me. Oh, trust me, you have a lot more to lose. And if you are sloppy and arousing robert’s suspicions… miraculously, robert still trusts me. Then why was anna not at the safe house? I don’t know. She’s an expert at evasion. If she doesn’t want to be found, you won’t find her.

[ Sighs ] Yes, well, wasn’t that lucky for you? Otherwise, robert wouldn’t have given you a second glance all those years ago. Does it still sting to know that you’ve always played second fiddle to anna? Didn’t expect to see you here. Everything okay? Yeah, everything’s great. Just keeping busy. What about you guys? Are you working, or do you have an appointment? Tj: Hey, everyone. Hey! Happy thanksgiving. Back at you. Tj, I have a question for you. Um, it’s a nursing thing. Excuse us. Yeah.

[ Sighs ] How’s willow doing? Has her pregnancy gotten any easier? Uh [Sighs] Actually… uh, willow and i are kind of nervous. ‘Cause she decided that she was gonna try and find her birth parents.


This duet is an opportunity for both blaze and chase. I mean, blaze is the one with the following. How many followers you got, babe? A few million. Since you’re the one riding her coattails, I think it’s on you to make this work. You know what? Here’s an idea, linc. Why don’t we grab a coffee at the counter and we’ll let the talent talk? Ooh, a little one-on-one time with blq? I’d be…happy to suss things out. I hope you don’t mind my saying so, but you seem a little… uncomfortable around linc.

[ Chuckling ] Uncomfortable? Yeah, with how touchy and handsy he can be. That’s the business. I mean, we’re artists, not accountants. It’s all hugs and kisses instead of handshakes. Like, I’m not talking about schmoozing. Linc — what he’s doing is so far beyond that. But you can fight back. Sit there. Why? You know why. I’m not letting you grope me.

[ Sighs ] You always were dramatic. And you always were a sleaze. And judging by the way you treat blaze, not much has changed. You don’t hear blaze complaining, do you?

[ Scoffs ] What linc is doing is, at the very least, sexual harassment. So? I have a contract with linc. And I’ve worked hard to get where I am. I’m not going to blow it now.

[ Scoffs lightly ] It doesn’t matter how talented you are if you get a bad rep for being difficult. We’re here to talk about the song. So…let’s do that. I wonder if esme’s been living in port charles all this time. I think she posted on social media a few days after the trial from the south of france, but it could have been faked, I suppose. Well, either way, she left and came back, or she never left at all. But it is possible that she could have attacked ava way back in — in august.

[ Sighs ] Hm.

[ Sighs ] And everyone gets to speculate about that except us. No, don’t drag me into this. Okay. Everyone gets to speculate about that except me because of you. No, you could speculate all you want.

I’m not allowed to join in, but you guys go ahead. You know what, dante? What? You’re no fun. Ooh. No kidding. At all. You are. Thank you. Thank you. All right, if we can’t talk about the case, let’s talk about food. Ooh. I like food. What’s sonny cooking for thanksgiving? Uh, it sounds like he’s cooking a whole bunch of stuff, like, way too much food. Yeah. There’s gonna be leftovers for weeks, so it’ll probably go bad. Um, you’re good with the kids spending thanksgiving eve with you, right? I’m not cooking. I know. The oven will be off. Okay. I’m ordering in. We’re gonna have a little picnic on the floor in the living room. Nice. And you’re not disappointed that the kids are gonna be at the q’s for thanksgiving? Why would I be disappointed?

[ Breathes sharply ] Alright, besides, I get to have them all to myself tonight. What are you guys doing? We are gonna go to sonny’s after we drop the kids off at the q’S. And then after we go to sonny’S…

[ Chuckles ] …We’re gonna go back to the q’s for pizza. I guess there’s gonna be, like, a big crowd at the quartermaines’, huh? Sounds like it. The usual. Plus, my mother invited cody to go out, which is — I don’t think he’s gonna be into that at all. So I’ll probably have to go down to the stables and take a beer to him so he doesn’t spend the holiday alone. Cody’s not spending thanksgiving with britt? I don’t know. He didn’t say. So is britt spending tomorrow with you and scott? Unless she gets a better offer. Oh, you’re talking about cody. So, are things getting serious between them? Well [Clears throat] Not yet, but it is inevitable. What do you mean? I don’t know how to say it. I never have. I tried to make it go away. I — I figured if I just didn’t acknowledge it… “it”? You —

[ Sighs ] My father’s legacy. The only thing he ever gave me. You’re talking about — I-I — I’ve tried to, you know, put faison out of my mind. And it — and it actually worked. I mean, of course, he’d pop up every now and then. But he’d never linger. Now I’ll remember him for the rest of my life. However long that is. Don’t talk like that. Your dad’s dead and gone. Yeah, but he left some things behind. Okay, well, then throw them away. I can’T. Sure you can. You can just give it to me. How will you and sonny be spending thanksgiving? Sonny’s hosting. Is he? I confess I’m surprised. Why, aunt liesl? Family’s very important to sonny. I don’t mean this to sound harsh, but who in his family’s still speaking to him? His daughters. Ah, yes, the, um — the toddling ones. No, and kristina… tj and molly. But I am sure they have other plans already. Anyway, all family are welcome. Even that ingrate michael. Willow wants to find her birth parents, huh? Yeah, and any other relatives who might be out there. Carly: Oh, my god, it’s true. Nina’s willow’s mother. I-I’m curious. What changed her mind? I feel like such a coward leaving michael to deal with his mom when I’m the one who wants to keep my condition private. Hey, michael can deal with his mother. And you’re facing leukemia. You should feel free to handle that any way that works for you. I know that everyone would be supportive if I told them, but I cannot risk wiley finding out that I am sick. It would scare him too much. Okay, well, we will tell him when the time is right. And if that is many years from now, even better. Here’s hoping. Right now [Sighs] I want to keep this as quiet as possible.


Good news?Uh, it could be. If brook lynn would get back to me. How are things with you and brook lynn? Uh, w-well, it’s pretty good, but this — this isn’t really about us. It’s, uh, the civilian complaint review board. They’re gonna re-evaluate chase’s case. Oh, that’s good. Is he gonna get his badge back? Well, I’m hoping he does. Mm. Well, I hope he does, too. You know, it’s not easy to lose your job. It’s hard to bounce back. Yeah, and I thought you were happy at the invader. I’m okay.

[ Cellphone chimes ] You know, I’m very lucky that I had a second chance at a career. Uh, you know what? I’m sorry. But I — I gotta go deal with this. Mm-hmm. Well, duty calls? Yeah, something like that. Anything you’d like to add? Mom! On or off the record? Thank you for lunch. See you. Perhaps the reason you’re not the distraction I hoped you’d be is because robert is busy waiting for anna to tire of valentin.

[ Waves crashing, buoy bell ringing ] As valentin has tired of you? Why is it that your one and only son isn’t by your side, aiding and abetting your crimes? You’re gonna be so lonely when you finally create whatever ridiculous world it is that you’re forging and you have absolutely no one to share it with. Careful how you tread, missy. Lest I teach you the true meaning of loneliness. Oh, I’m very sorry. I take it back. You know how loved you are… as I know how much robert loves me. As you love him? Doesn’t matter how I feel about robert. The only person I care about at the moment is my son ethan. And I want to talk to him. Oh, well, I’m afraid he can’t come to the phone right now. If I don’t speak to him, how do I know that the worst hasn’t already happened? Oh, come on, holly, don’t be so melodramatic. You get that proof-of-life photograph of him every day, don’t you? Photos prove nothing. Well, I’m afraid you’re just gonna have to trust me, then. As you’re going to have to trust that I will take care of robert. Give it to you? Well, I mean, yeah, you — you didn’t want it anymore, and it probably belongs to me, so, you know, win-win, right?

[ Chuckles ] What are you talking about? Your father’s legacy. The necklace.

[ Scoffs, chuckles ] You think this is about a necklace? Well, I mean, it’s hardly just a necklace, but, you know… of course. Wait, wait, wait. Of — what else could you be talking about? Of course! It’s about the $35 million in jewelry on my desk! I mean, after all, the only thing you care about is getting rich, right? Wait, wait. No, no, I — I — I can’t believe I’m even surprised. It was the necklace you wanted! I was just here! Wait, hold — okay, all right, britt, this is — I don’t — t-this conversation just took a massive wrong turn. What — I didn’t mean t– y-y-you didn’t mean what? You didn’t mean for me to let my guard down? You didn’t mean for me to be vulnerable for five minutes after you’ve been grilling me for months?! Yeah, I wanted to get to know you! Oh, sure you did. So you could get that stupid necklace! Well, you know what? You want it so bad? Here you go. Here you go and get out. I’m not sure what you think is missing. I mean, you’ve got some huge vocal moments in here. It’s — you — right here and — yeah. It’s — it’s not the song, per se. The song is actually great. So when you were complaining before… totally posturing.

[ Both chuckle ] I love it. But when linc talked about taking me in another direction… this is not what I had in mind. What’s wrong with the direction that you’re on?

[ Laughs ] Please. Between the wigs and the costumes… half the time, I don’t recognize myself. Fair enough.

[ Chuckles ] And what direction did you want to take this? Honestly? I wanted a folk song. You like folk?

[ Chuckling ] Yeah. What’s wrong with it? No, not a thing. It’s just a 180 from your usual songs. Ah. My first manager came up with my look, and I went along with it. Linc signed me as a pop singer. Now, linc says that my fans won’t accept me singing anything else. But I want the chance to try new things, don’t you? No, not really.

[ Both laugh ] I — I like things that I know. Ah. Singing standards. Like being a cop. Like in the village people?

[ Laughs ] No, no. I-I was a detective with the pcpd. I kind of fell into singing. ? Uh, I wouldn’t say that. Well, with, the, um — you know, the baby coming, we — we decided that it’s, um, it’s important to know as much as possible about willow’s family medical history. Mm.

[ Footsteps approaching ] That makes sense, yeah. So how are you going about finding your birth parents? Well, um, willow and I’ve been doing our own research. But, uh, also, drew offered to help. Did he? Sorry, I’ve got to run, but happy thanksgiving, everyone. Tj, what are you molly doing tomorrow? Yeah, um, m-my mom’s coming over to our apartment to celebrate, and alexis is going to sonny’s, which would be super awkward, so we won’t see her until friday. Why would that be awkward? I-I — I th– I thought you knew. Uh, knew what? What? All right. What now?

[ Sighs ] Nina accused willow of sleeping with tj, and sonny believed her. What are you waiting for? Congratulations, your plan worked.

[ Chuckles ] Now get out of my office, out of my life. Ah, dr. Westbourne. Oh, sorry to interrupt. Looks like you’ve had a break-in. No. I wanted it like this. Yeah, well, your call, I guess. What’s in the case? None of your business. If it’s a $35 million necklace recovered from peter august, yeah, it’s my business. And, uh, I have a warrant here for it. Hand it over.


You and brook lynn?

[ Scoffs ] And you were giving me a hard time about linc. That is completely different.

[ Chuckles ] Brook lynn is more than just my manager. Well, clearly. She’s also my best friend. We’ve helped each other through a lot. And this whole…business arrangement between you two. From what you’re saying, it seems pretty one-sided. No. We’re both committed to this relationship. But you’re still doing what she wants, not what you want. Well, singing may not be as fulfilling as police work, but I’m happy to do it for brook lynn. I would do anything for her. And I know that she’d do anything for me. What you need to accept, brook lynn, is — can’t wait for this pearl of wisdom. You’re old news. What do I need you for when I have blaze? And when I’m this close to signing magdalena perez. Magdalena perez? She can’t be more than 17. She’s 18. And don’t let the name fool you. She’s no virgin. You’re disgusting. I thought I could stomach working with you, but nope! Wrong. Fine by me.

[ Sighs ]

[ Chuckling ] Oh, no. This definitely will not be fine for you. Because from this moment on, I will not let you harass one other person. Oh, is that right? Whatcha gonna do, blq? I’m gonna expose you for the creep that you are. I’m gonna tell everyone how you treated me when you were my manager. I just have one question — if I was so awful back then, then why are you working with me now? Hm? Do your worst, brook lynn. No one’s going to listen to a bitter has-been. Oh, linc… it won’t be just me. So what was t-the face about? What face? The face you made when dante mentioned cody. Cody hinted that dante may have done something, maybe something illegal, when he was younger. You mean like egging cars or going on a spree of bank heists? Mom, I don’t know. He didn’t get into details, but he made it sound serious. Okay. What age are we talking about? Dante said that they lost touch when they were like 16, so I imagine it would have to be before that. Well, did you ask dante about it? No. Why not? What are you thinking? I don’t know. It’s cody. He’s probably exaggerating. Yeah, yeah, there you go. But I — I have this instinct that I need to know what happened. Nina lives to cause trouble. And sonny knows you would never do something like that. Well, at least he should. Nina claimed she was worried about how my affair would

[Breathes sharply] Affect wiley. Of course nina used wiley as an excuse. That woman never stops. She tried to make sonny think there was something going on between me and brick. Hey, what? Oh, my gosh. Yeah. I’ll explain later, I got to go. See you later. So you engaged in a little gossip and got it wrong. Really wrong — like twice. Did you destroy michael and willow’s saccharine union? No. [ Sighs ] Then they have no cause for complaint. And if they try, let me know. No, no. No, thank you. Mnh-mnh. I think I can handle it. It’s just… the tension with michael — it really upsets sonny, and I don’t like to see him hurt ’cause he feels things very deeply. And sonny is treating you well, as he should? I’ve never been happier. Maybe next year, we —

[ Laughs ] What? No. No! This — I was — I was gonna say maybe next year we could have thanksgiving together. But, you know, with sonny and me and britt and cody and [Chuckles] You and scott. But we both know that’s never gonna happen. You can’t just walk in here and take my necklace. It’s my necklace, jackass. You just gave it to me. It was a futile attempt to shame you. Were you really gonna take it? No. But you can’t have it. This warrant says I can. And as per the state of new york, we have reason to believe that the diamonds in that piece were obtained, uh, unlawfully. So, until this is resolved, it stays in our possession. Officer. Hand over the necklace, sir. Best not to resist. Robert scorpio, your friendly neighborhood da, and, uh, until recently, almost your uncle. Yeah, close call. Apparently. Sir? For pete’s sake. Here, take it. Hm. Yep, fits the description. Britt: Well, come back any time. You’re on the wrong side of my door. Get out. Wait. If you weren’t referring to the necklace, what’s this legacy you were talking about? Now, from here, I need you to escort me around to the, uh, metro court hotel, then I want you to head back. Maybe I should stick around? You know…I think I can handle this. Besides, I’ve got the bureau guys coming over for the, uh, diamonds here. But, you know, uh, why don’t you cuff this to my wrist? Good idea. There we go. Good. Figure that ought to do it.

[ Cellphone rings ] Yes? The package has changed hands. Scorpio has the necklace. What? Well, how? He came to westbourne’s office with a cop. But don’t worry, I know where he’s headed. Excellent. .


once I go public, other women you’ve harassed over the years will come forward. I mean, we’ve seen it happen time and time again. All I have to do is light a match. And your reputation, your career, your family will go up in flames. You are kind, sweet, and genuinely easy to work with. Well, I thank you.

[ Chuckles ] Get out of this business. While all of that is still true. I’ve gotta run. New costume fitting. I have to make sure I can breathe in it.

[ Both chuckle ] Well, it’s good working with you. And think about what I said, okay? Oh, thank you. Oh, hey. Uh, hey, you’re, uh, you’re blaze, right? I am, indeed. Oh, cool. My — my son is — he loves you. He’s a big fan. But you don’t? No, I-I do. I am. I-I just didn’t recognize you without all of the stuff. Disappointed? No, not at all.

[ Laughs ] Thank you. Yeah, have a good one. Hey, did you get her autograph? No, but I should have. Rocco would have loved that, man.

[ Chuckles ] What is blaze doing in port charles? We’re actually working on a song together. What? Dude, that’s amazing. Look at you. [ Chuckles ] We’d better head upstairs. First day of chemotherapy. You’re gonna do great. If you need anything at all, do not hesitate to call. I won’T. Thank you, tj, for all the support. Yeah, thank you. You, um — you’ve been a great friend.

[ Sighs ] You ready? Absolutely. Okay, let’s go. Nina, uh, do you have a second? Um, uh, sure. Uh, how can I help you? I was just wondering, um, why are you so sure that esme is the hook killer? Well, that’s really something you need to talk to ava about, not me. But you’re living with her, right? Yeah. So I-if esme were to attack again, you could be in danger. Well, how about this? I’ll talk to ava about it, and she will give you a call. Good? Okay. You okay here? This hook story keeps getting bigger and bigger and more dangerous. And people keep promising me information that they’re not giving me. All the while, I’m sitting on what I know that could be helpful. You’re talking about the letter the killer sent to you? Yes, I am. I held back and didn’t print anything in exchange for jordan giving me an exclusive. She’s giving me the runaround, and I’m worried about waiting. What are you gonna do? What are you still doing here? Leave! No. No. No, no, no. I-I want to know about this — this legacy that faison left you.

[ Scoffs ] Why? It’s not anything you could sell.

[ Chuckles ] I made a mistake. Okay?

[ Laughs ] I was truly just trying to help you, though. How? By — by — by taking $35 million off my hands? Well, it didn’t seem like you wanted it. And if I’d known that you were talking about something else, I would have — I was.

[ Sighs ] Goodbye. For good. Okay, so what? What? Are we at that point where you’re gonna slam the door in my face? Again, britt, I made a mistake. I’m sorry. Look, I know…that you have a hard time opening up, just like I have a hard time not putting my foot in my mouth. But I can’t be expected to have the perfect reaction all the time. I wasn’t expecting you to have the perfect reaction. I-I-I would have taken… hell, somewhat less mercenary. Please, just tell me, what will it take for you to give me the benefit of the doubt? More than I have to give.

[ Knock on door ] Come in.

[ Sighs ] What is going on here? Absolutely nothing. Do you understand? Good. Well, holly. Your time has come. Meaning? Meaning robert has acquired something I want. It’s in a briefcase. He’s on his way to the metro court. Your job is to intercept him and get the briefcase. Sounds easy enough. One little wrinkle — briefcase is handcuffed to his wrist. Well, he’ll have to uncuff at some point. No matter. Tonight, when he’s asleep, I’ll steal it. Ah, yes, but, you see, the wsb are on their way to recover the contents of that briefcase as we speak. How the hell am I supposed to get around that? Well, I don’t know. You’ll think of something. Let ethan be your inspiration.


This is alexis davis, editor-in-chief of — of the invader. If you would be so kind as to give commissioner ashford a — a message for me. Yeah. Tell her that I will be printing the letter that the hook killer sent to me in full — it’ll be on the front page of the paper tomorrow.

[ Breathes deeply ] Ask her if she has any comments.

[ Monitor beeping ] I did nothing wrong. No woman ever told me “no.” I did, several times. You overreacted. The only reason women keep quiet about you, the only reason women hold their noses and let you touch them is because you’ve convinced them that, if they don’t, their careers will go bye-bye. Well, fortunately for me, I don’t have to worry about my singing career anymore. And fortunately for them, they won’t have to worry about you anymore. Not when I become their manager. Oh, what, you’re going to poach my clients? That’s right, linc. Not only am I going to expose you — I’m going to completely ruin you. I will destroy you. Or… you could get your songs back. I’ve been leaving all these messages for brook lynn. I had to come here to track her down. Cut her some slack, okay? Brook lynn has been working 24/7 — promoting my new single, booking gigs — you name it. Hey, man, that’s — I’m really happy to hear how well everything’s going for you. Thanks. I can’t complain. Well, I bet not. I mean, look, this new career you got. Maybe she doesn’t have to write that letter. What letter?

[ Door closes ] Here, let me help you. Please don’t! Britta, what has happened?

[ Voice breaking ] Nothing! Nothing. It’s just one more mistake is all. Oh, meine tochter. Couples argue. That doesn’t mean it’s over. We’re not a couple! Not really. But you were well on your way. Perhaps, in time — I-I don’t have time, mother. Britta, please. You have to tell me what’s wrong. Then I can help you. There’s nothing you can do.

[ Scoffs ] I’m sick.

[ Breathes deeply ] What you’re asking is impossible. Nonsense. You’re ideally placed to retrieve that necklace from your ex-husband, provided you’re not lying to me and robert still trusts you. It’s not a question of trust. It’s a question of logistics. Then what are you waiting here for? You better get going, holly. Before the wsb get their hands on that briefcase.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

[ Breathing heavily ] Hey, there. Carly, hi. Hey. Out for a run? Yeah, just finishing up. Lucky me. You being here when I just happened by. Yeah. Quite the coincidence, isn’t it? Mm. Yeah. Hi. We have to be really careful. Somebody knows about us. Easy. You’re awake. Unless I’m dreaming.

[ Exhales sharply ] Your fever’s going down. How do you feel? Much better.

[ Inhales sharply ]

[ Groans ] How’s the side? Only hurts when I move. Okay. Here, hydrate. First of all… thank you. If you hadn’t taken care of me,I’d be totally screwed. You’re welcome. What’s the second thing? I need you to do something for me. Dex, it’s me. Three days is too long to go dark. One email is not enough. Get back to me. Now! Hmm. No word from dex on my end, either. I haven’t been able to track him through my sources. Thanks for the update. Yeah. That — that’s not the only reason I asked you here. Mm-hmm. Last night when I said that I was all cool with everything that went down with you and carly… I’m not.

[ Knock on door ] Come in. Hey. Hey. Dr. Talone’s on her way. Oh, joy. She’s a leading specialist in huntington’s disease, and her waiting list is usually months long, so… I appreciate the strings you pulled to get me a consult with her. But you don’t have to stay. I know.

[ Chuckles ] I mean, I can stick around if you want me to. Yeah, sure. It would be nice to have some moral support… if this really is the beginning of the end.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, here. Now, I’ve come to meet you.

[ Clears throat ] Okay, being dominique’s son can only get you so far. What do you want? Some legal advice.

[ Exhales deeply ] I may be coming into an absurd amount of money. Robert: The game’s over. I-I don’t know what you’re ta– enough! I baited you with a phony address to anna’s hideout 15 minutes ago. Whitten, from the agency, descended on that property, acting on an anonymous tip. You supplied the tip! How long have you been working with victor?!


Dex, I’m not getting you clothes. I bled all over what I was wearing. I’m sorry about your brother’s shirt. I told you. Michael won’t miss it. And that’s not the point. Right. The point is, I can’t just walk out of here in bloodstained clothes and hope no one notices. The point is, you can’t walk. You can’t even stand. Yes, I can.

[ Groans ] Dex, don’T.

[ Groaning ] See? Josslyn saw us kissing the night sonny brought her home. Ah, and she didn’t say anything until now? Well, she’s got a lot going on. She’s fine. And josslyn can be trusted. Yeah, that’s definitely true. I mean, even when she was a kid, she had my back. Mm. She always made me feel like family. You are family. That reminds me. Michael and willow asked me to look into something that could be important to us. “Us.” I like the sound of us. Mm.

[ Exhales deeply ] Well, well, well. Fancy running into you two here. You have the wrong idea. Damn it. You can’t talk your way out of this, kid! Yes, I’m doing victor’s bidding. But not by choice! Not by choice! And the more that I tell you — oh, god, it’s so complicated. The more that I tell you, the more there will be a target on your back. Oh, damn it! There’s a target on everyone’s back as long as victor walks around. What? We got luke murdered, anna framed. And from what I’m hearing, we’re all in danger, and you included! Look, I can help you. But you gotta tell me everything. And I mean everything. You’re coming into money, huh? Illegal money, no doubt. Nope. Nope. I’m coming into this honestly. Turns out serena… may not have walked away with all the taub fortune. How do you mean, “may not have”? Well, there is some dispute as to whether or not the fortune belongs to leopold taub’s heirs or cesar faison’S. Dr. Talone, thank you for making the time to see me. It’s an interesting case, but I’ve got to leave for toronto soon, so let’s just dive in. I’ve asked dr. Gatlin-holt to sit in for moral support. That’d be me. Thank you for coming, doctor. I’m the one who forwarded you her records. Yes, I’ve looked them over. You tested positive for the gene two years ago? That’s correct. What made you get tested? Family history? That, and I thought I was experiencing symptoms, but it turns out it was just my carpal tunnel acting up. The details from that visit are vague.

[ Clicks tongue ] I was, in a way, incognito at the time. I gave a false name to the doctor. I’m sure what the doctor told you was accurate, but without a full medical history, it may not have been complete. The swallowing symptoms you described, if they are what you fear, would imply that you’re further along. How much further? It’s possible that a secondary condition of carpal tunnel was masking over tremors caused by chorea… a symptom of stage 2 huntington’S. If you weren’t up front with the doctor about your identity, I assume you also withheld details of your life, say, 5, 10 years ago? I was essentially on the run for most of that time, except for the year I spent in prison. Were you experirritability, depression, restless limbs while sleeping?

[ Scoffs ] Did you not just hear me? I was on the run and then a prisoner. So, yes, I was quite restless and anxious and — and depressed. It’s entirely possiblethat at that time, you were experiencing the first, harder to detect, stage of the disease.


I would never disrespect you by making a move on the mother of your kids. I believe you, brick. But when carly meddles with my business, with my people, usually ends up with disaster. You know what I mean? Give carly some credit. She handled herself well and took over the reins while you were missing. I get you. But whatever she’s into now could be conflict for my kids. I can’t have that, brick. If — if the situation was dangerous, I’d tell you. I give you my word on that.

[ Knock on door, door opens ] Supplier wants to meet you outside. I’ll be right back. All right. Hey, um, well, I was just, um — I was just walking by when, uh, drew — yeah, I was just finishing a run. Do a little stretching. Yeah, yeah. So I see. I see. Yeah. Yeah, I was just taking a stroll in the park since I have so much time on my hands since I’m not at the metro court anymore. Mm-hmm. What about you? Oh, I just dropped leo off for his first basketball practice. It’s just a little — little intramural thing, you know, with other kids on the spectrum to practice their, uh, team-building skills before the big season starts. Oh, I love that.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh. Hold on one second. Mm-hmm. Um… I have to go. Something has come up. So I will — I’ll — I’ll talk to you guys later, all right? Okay. Yup. Leo had quite an adventure last night.

[ Exhales deeply ] Yeah. Yeah. Leo’s such a — he’s such a great kid. I think so. He can’t stop talking about that cellphone he found outside the gatehouse.

[ Breathing sharply ] Are you gonna sit down? Or am I just supposed to watch you fall over? I’ll admit I can’t run any marathons, but I can make it back to my place. The last time you tried that, you popped two stitches and the wound got infected. Well, that’s ’cause I was trying to sneak out of your brother’s house at night, okay? I was in a hurry. I brushed up against a tree. That’s when I popped the stitches. Fortunately, it’s broad daylight now. Look, I just need you to go get me some clean clothes, and I’ll be out of here. You — you can’t leave yet. You’re still too weak. How many people live on this floor? 30. How many floors are there? 10. Okay, so that’s 300 ways to get caught. Um, if you go out there and collapse, that’s another way to get caught. Right, and if I do that, I’ll be on my own and you won’t be implicated. Joss.

[ Groans ] I didn’t come to you for help, but you helped me anyway. I’m not gonna repay you by getting you charged as an accessory after the fact. An accessory to what? You still won’t tell me what you did. Correction. What sonny ordered you to do. Look, I only stayed last night ’cause I was too messed up to leave. Okay, but I’m better now. So if you won’t go get me the clothes, I’m gonna have to put back on what I have and take my chances. Britt: What are you saying? That I could have been showing symptoms while I was on the run? I mean, that was eight years ago. I’m trying to make the symptoms you have today align with what we know of the disease.

[ Exhales sharply ] Trouble swallowing is your main symptom? Dr. Westbourne, if you’re honest with dr. Talone, it might help her make an accurate diagnosis, right? I’ve been more irritable lately. The tremors still show up every once in a while. Define “once in awhile.” Okay, fine. Fairly regularly. But I keep them in check. I’d like to conduct some tests. Cody: Leopold taub, he bequeathed several pieces of jewelry to his direct heirs, one to include a necklace that somehow ended up with peter august. Right. That britt found that necklace in a safety deposit box? Mm-hmm. But it’s funny that the girl who had the necklace was now hooked up with you through society setups. Yeah, well, I-I guess it was fate. Or not. Anyways, the necklace contains diamonds cut from the ice princess. Oh, yes, the ice princess, the diamond the cassadines, they were gonna freeze the world. Yeah, that’s what I heard. Well, look, I got a little piece of advice for you. Run for the hills! I’ve been lying to you. My memory of the last two years is anything but hazy. It’s seared into me. Let’s take it from the beginning, huh? Come on.

[ Inhales deeply ] I was investigating rudge and his casino. That much is true. And the rumor was that victor was alive and well and working with rudge. Given his — he still had allies in the bureau. And word must have got out and my cover was blown. And rudge kept me captive in the casino for weeks until… you managed to call me.

[ Cellphone rings ] Scorpio. Holly: Robert! Hey.

Help! Speak up. I can’t hear.

[ Static ] Hello?

Robert! Hey, talk to me, will you? I need you. Look, I can’t — robert. Holly? Please! Well, I just knew you’d be on your way. That’s when victor revealed himself to me. He wanted me to know what would happen if I tried to contact you again, to make an example of someone I cared about.

[ Gun cocks ] That’s when he brought in paloma. Victor: Goodbye, paloma.

[ Screams ] Paloma? Your sister?

[ Sobbing ] The bastard made me watch while he m-murdered my sister in front of my eyes.


En if I tried to escape. Paloma — she looked just like you. It was her body we found on the casino grounds. Holly’s wedding ring. Wearing my wedding ring. Add some f-falsified dental records… voil! Everybody in the world thinks I’m dead. Evidently, paloma was expendable. But victor… thought he might have some use for me someday. Open the door! You bastard! Let me out of here! It was kept in the lap of luxury till my temper got the better of me. Let me out! What are you doing?! Help! Help! Victor moved me from crete to… god knows where. And then he did find a use for me. Brought me here. Anna was getting in the way of his master plan, whatever the hell it is. And he wanted me… …to distract you… …after framing anna. Tell me… tell me you didn’t shoot lucy. Ohh! It was me. How? I don’t believe it! H-how could you? She was your friend! And you kill her! I did no such thing! You just told me you shot her! I said I shot her! But lucy’s not dead. Hey. You’re supposed to take that with food. Hold on. Here. Thanks. Did you have any trouble? No. I was in and out in less than five minutes. As far as I know, nobody saw me. Socks? Well, I didn’t think that you’d want to wear your old ones, and I wasn’t about to dig through your bloody bag of clothes to find the other ones. Right. Okay.

[ Groans, breathing sharply ] Okay. Stop. Give me those. You know, the fact that you can’t get dressed by yourself may tell you that you are still too weak to go. Ah. Can you help me with the pants?

[ Groans ]

[ Grunts softly ] Hey, here, give it to me. I can — I can take it from here.

[ Groaning ]

[ Exhales deeply ] Ta-da! It’s impressive. What are you gonna do about the shoes? All right. [ Sighs ] Where were we?

[ Cellphone thuds ] Look, I respect you, sonny. And if what happened was about business, I would tell you. But I prefer to leave other people’s private matters… private. Doesn’t our working relationship, our friendship, allow for that?

[ Knock on door ] Boss. I hear you got the wrong idea about me and brick. I’m glad you’re here while I set you straight.

[ Sighs ] What are you doing? Well, it’ll look weird if you’re carrying around an empty duffel bag. Just put my stuff in it. Oh, right. And if somebody happens to open your bag and it’s full of bloody clothes, that’s not gonna make you look guilty at all. What are you gonna do with them?

[ Sighs ] I’m gonna take it to my mom’s and burn everything in the fire pit, along with the sheet and everything that I brought from my michael’S. You’re going to a lot of trouble for me. Yeah. I am. So, don’t get caught.


Damn. What? Oh, this, it wasn’t supposed to happen.

[ Chuckles ] Well, it did. I have to go. Well, I-I’ll drive you. No, no, you’ve done enough. I’ll take it from here. Dex, wait. Um… your keys. Bye, joss. So, now leo wants his own cellphone. And I said, “ah, na, na, na, not till you’re 12 years old,” which, as you can imagine, really didn’t go over so well. I tried to explain to him that he’s about 20 years younger than I was when I got my first cellphone. So, it was a — uh [Whistles] You here? I’m sorry. I ju– [ Laughs ] I was just, um… thinking about carly? I don’t suppose things between the two of you have progressed, have they? So, you’ve been asking questions about me being in brick’s room. Not that it’s any of your business. I just told her you were curious. Here’s the deal. Drew and I are seeing each other, and we havere are some insider trading issues at play. I asked brick if he could cover up our digital tracks. Will you give us a minute? Gladly. Okay. I’m sure you got a lot to say. I’m ha– I’m happy for you. Hey. Still here? Yeah. How’d it go? Hell if I know. Dr. Talone isn’t exactly the warm, cheery type. Her bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. Right, you wouldn’t know anything about that.

[ Both laugh ] Thank you. You’re welcome. Oh, you mean

[Chuckles] For dissing your bedside manner? Yeah, you’re welcome for that, too. For not treating me any differently now that you know the truth. It’s a lot easier to talk about this with people I don’t know very well, like you. I’m touched. Right.

[ Scoffs ] I just mean…

[ Exhales deeply ] …It takes a lot more energy to get into it with people I’m closer to. Of course. Like cody? Brad? I know…how my story is gonna end. It’s one thing to hear the gory details in front of an er triage doctor — that’d be me. It’s another for my loved ones. And… I want them to remember me. You know, not what thishorrific disease does to me.

[ Knock on door ] Hi, dr. Talone. What did you find? Okay. T-the ice princess, I-it’s cursed. All right? That’s a fact. Look it up. No, I-I’ve done some research, yeah. Yeah, well, anybody that’s claimed that diamond has died. Including luke spencer. You know what? I don’t want anything to do with this. Okay, so you won’t help me? I am helping you. I’m telling you to walk away. Fine. You know what? I’ll handle it myself. Ah, so forget about the curse. You’re gonna go after this inheritance and you’re gonna screw over the girl that you allegedly care about. Is that really worth it? Lucy’s alive? It was never victor’s intention to kill her. Lucy’s just another person he can use as leverage against the people of port charles. But how did he manage it? There were two shots fired that night. The first — the first one I shot was a rubber bullet. Victor, we obviously got our… what are you doing here? Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Please. No. No.

[ Gun cocks ]

[ Groans ]

[ Gunshot ] The second shot I fired was a real bullet. I fired it into the water, leaving casing and residue on the pier. But the video, it showed anna. During victor’s tenure at the bureau, he perfected the art of prosthetics, which he made me wear. Just like duke and faison. Got it. Lucy was retrieved from the water almost immediately by victor’s guards. Lucy: [ Groaning ] Wait. What — what happened? Wait, wait, wait. What happened? Wait, where are you ta– taking me? Wait.

[ Exhales deeply ] She’ll be in good hands for the time being. But you. Oh, you still have more work to do, ms. Sutton. Robert: I don’t understand. Why not run to the cops there and then? I mean, with lucy alive, anna’s cleared. Please, robert. Victor must never know that I’ve told you this. Nobody must know that lucy’s alive. I don’t think he’d harm her. He — he seems to have a soft spot for her. It’s not about lucy. There’s another reason that victor can never know that I’ve betrayed him. What has victor got on you? Not what. Who. My son.


I mean, it’s never gonna be easy seeing you with another guy. But you know what?

[ Exhales deeply ] Uh, drew’s a decent enough guy and, uh… …I’m not threatened by him at all, so… but, you know, I’m not surprised ’cause h-he’s around you all the time. Right. Thank you. Yeah. I didn’t come here to get your approval. I came here because I didn’t want you getting the wrong idea about me and brick. Right. How did you know that I was in his room? ‘Cause nina said that she saw you walk into his room. Nina. Ah! Of course. What? I mean, it is her life’s mission to make me miserable. C-carly. Carly, listen. I mean, I-I said I was happy for you.

[ Scoffs ] Can’t you be happy for me? I will be happy for you when your girlfriend learns to mind your own business.

[ Door opens ]

[ Sighs ] Found a friend of yours waiting to see you. All right. I’ll leave you to your business. Where the hell… have you been? You’re showing all the signs of entering stage 3 of huntington’s disease. If my timetable is correct, you’re in the low-intermediate stage of the disease. Your current symptoms will increase along with eventual significant cognitive impairment. How much time do I have? The average life-span of a patient in stage 3 is anywhere from 5 to 15 years. But as for living your daily life, it could be as soon as 18 months that you would need full-time care and assisted living. Victor has ethan? After your adventure in monte carlo, ethan found some evidence that I might still be alive, and he came looking for me. Why didn’t he bring it to me? I don’t know. Maybe he was trying to find confirmation first. I don’t know. But unfortunately for all of us, victor’s people caught him. Now victor’s holding him to secure my cooperation.

[ Sighs ] So, um…victor’s got anna on the run. He’s got lucy and ethan as prisoners.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

[ Sighs ] And he’s got me over a barrel. Is that him? And he’s coming here. You have to go. Put him off. I can’t provoke him! Or he’ll do the same to my son that he did to my sister.


Carly and I decided that it would be best if we just, uh, stayed friends. Oh. Well, hypothetically speaking, if that situation were to change, you know, you and carly would have a good reason to keep things quiet. Such as? Such as a lot of questions that ned was asking about the merger between aurora and elq. Mm. You know, who knew what and when they knew it. The merger that never happened? Oh, sure, sure, of course. But — but — but hypothetically speaking, someone, um… even someone that I’m married to, could raise a pretty big stink with the sec. And if that were the case… …you should know that you can count on me to not say anything. Carly is my best friend. And you’re family.

[ Knock on door ] Uh, just a sec. Carly: Joss, it’s me. Oh. Come in. Dex is gone. Yeah, I know. I just saw him in sonny’s office. What?

[ Scoffs ] Unbelievable. I almost kill myself trying to save him, and he runs back to sonny? You can’t save him, josslyn. I didn’t mean it like that. Dex is working for sonny by his own choice, and as grateful as he is that you helped him, that job is gonna be his top priority. You want me to say that this was a one-time thing, and that I’m never gonna see dex again? Will you be disappointed if it is a one-time thing? I need to go home, and I need to use the fire pit. All right, well, now is a good time. The girls aren’t there. Let’s go. The bullet grazed my side. It bled a lot, and it got infected. Then I found a place to crash until my fever broke. Why didn’t you call in? I lost my phone. That’s not professional. No, I was really out of it the first night, okay? I wasn’t sure if the cops were looking for me. I kept my hat on the whole time. I kept my face in shadow. But there’s a chance the guard could still I.D. Me. What do you think, brick? Out of contact for three days, conveniently lost his phone. I can see why you’d be concerned. Look, I stayed away because I didn’t want to bring any trouble back to you. Okay, I want you to, no matter what, you can count on me.

[ Sobbing ] I’m trying my best to save everyone. Anna and lucy and ethan. But…something has to give! You’re right. Something does. Thank you, dr. Talone, for going out of your way to meet with me. I’m sorry it wasn’t better news. Okay.

[ Exhales deeply ] Wanna go for a walk? Thanks, but I need to be alone. You want a drink? Austin, you’ve been great. But I need to handle this by myself. Okay. You know where to find me.

[ Exhales shakily ]

[ Sniffles ] Damn it.

[ Screams ]

[ Exhales deeply ]

[ Grunts ] Damn! Damn! Damn.

[ Sobbing ]

[ Screams ] I just got word from eileen ashby. Anna devane has escaped. How is that possible? You tell me. I saw the text on robert’s phone. Anna was at the address I gave the marshal. Robert may be on to you. Best be on your guard. Meanwhile, I have another assignment for you. One that involves an old friend of yours.

[ Groans ]

[ Sniffles ] Gee, peter. Thanks.

[ Chuckles ] Did you get this from dear old dad? Guess what I got.

[ Knock on door ] Britt.

GH Update Friday, November 18, 2022

General Hospital Updates

GH logo

Update written by Shane

At General Hospital, Spinelli told Sam that he had found a juvenile arrest record for Cody. Spinelli said that Cody’s record hadn’t been uploaded to any databases, and he added that he was more than ready to find out what was in the records.

Maxie confronted Austin regarding the odd number of surgeries he has been performing.  Austin explained that the hospital is simply understaffed but Maxie thought Austin had been avoiding her. 

In her office at the hospital, Britt received a visit from Sam. Britt asked if Sam had come to talk about the necklace. Sam was leery of sharing information about the necklace because Cody was present but Britt gave her blessing, so Sam shared what she knew..

Based on what Sam has uncovered, the necklace had been in Leopold Taub’s possession, and Cody was likely its rightful heir. Sam added that the necklace could have been obtained by Faison and that if a sales receipt were to surface, the necklace could belong to Britt.

Austin knocked, and he asked Britt to step outside with him. Outside Britt’s office, Austin informed Britt that he had located a Canadian expert on Huntington’s disease and that she was driving into Port Charles to discuss the matter with Britt.  Britt began to give the same excuses about how she could possibly meet the doctor today because she had so many things to get done.  Austin implored Britt to meet with the doctor to put the issues to rest.   

Alone in Britt’s office, Sam told Cody that she knew why Cody had forced Spinelli into matching Britt with Cody. “It’s the necklace. That’s what you’ve been after all along, isn’t it?” Sam asked.

Sam said that it was convenient that a necklace worth millions had turned up in Britt’s safe deposit box not long after Cody had arrived in town. Sam also pointed out that Cody had used blackmail as a way to get closer to Britt. 

Sam asked what Cody meant, but Britt reentered before Cody could answer. Sam left, and Britt remarked that Cody had just inherited “some major coin.” Just then, Victor appeared outside Britt’s office, and he overheard Britt say that Cody had inherited part of the Ice Princess diamond.

Later, Sam asked Spinelli to hold off on looking into Cody’s arrest record. When Spinelli asked why Sam had changed her mind, Sam said that she had her reasons, and she asked Spinelli to promise to leave the matter alone.

At the Metro Court, Robert wondered why Holly looked so grim. Holly said that Lucy and Anna were both on her mind. Holly told Robert how much it had meant to her that Robert had never lost hope in finding her. Holly changed the subject back to Lucy and Anna. Robert said he knew that Anna was somewhere safe. Robert’s phone rang, and he asked the caller to text him the address to Anna’s safe house. Holly spilled her drink (on purpose), and she asked Robert to bring her a club soda. When Robert left, Holly looked at Robert’s phone, and she saw the address that had been texted. Robert returned, and Holly left with the excuse that she had made an appointment with Kevin to help treat her memory issues. On an elevator, Holly phoned Victor to ask for a meeting.

At Pier 55 on the Waterfront District, Laura ran into Victor. Laura had been on her way to visit Nikolas at Wyndemere, and Victor offered to share a launch. Laura refused. Victor asked Laura to drop her “pointless vendetta” against him. Laura said that when she sorted everything out, she would take Victor down.

Victor claimed that he was saddened by Laura’s “stubborn refusal” to let the past be the past. Laura accused Victor of having framed Anna for Lucy’s murder. Victor said he wanted Lucy’s killer brought to justice. Laura agreed that it was something they both had in common, and she left.

Later, Holly met Victor at the pier, and she reluctantly gave Victor the same address that had been texted to Robert. Victor was surprised by how easily Holly had volunteered the information, and he said that Holly would have to alert the police to Anna’s whereabouts herself. Victor left after he received a text.

At the Port Charles Police Station, Mac and Dante overheard Agent Witten tell someone over the phone to keep an eye on Valentin because Valentin could lead the Marshal’s office straight to Anna. Mac and Dante returned to the interrogation room. Mac shared that Cody wasn’t his son. Dante sympathized with Mac, and Felicia entered with food for Mac and Dante. Dante left to get coffee.

Felicia thought that Mac had been lying about his true feelings about the results of Cody’s DNA tests. Mac said he had more pressing issues to worry about, and he referenced that Anna was being framed for murder and that a serial killer was on the loose. Felicia pleaded with Mac to be honest with her about his feelings about Cody’s DNA results.

Mac acknowledged that he did wish he had a biological child so that he could share the bond that Felicia has with Maxie.

Dante returned with coffee, and moments later, Witten entered the interrogation room with Laura. Witten announced that he had a lead on Anna’s whereabouts, and he offered to let Mac and Dante ride with him. 

Felicia received a text from Mac, and she shared that Witten’s van had pulled up outside the suspected safe house. Felicia added that Witten wouldn’t hesitate to “take Anna down” if Anna refused to surrender willingly. Laura hoped that Mac and Dante could get Anna out of the house safely.

At the safe house, Anna was surprised when Valentin had appeared. After Valentin entered, Anna pulled him close for a kiss. Valentin told Anna that it was no longer safe for her to be at the safe house, and he wanted to get Anna out of the country.

Afterwards, Valentin held Anna, and he swore that he would always fight for her. Later, Anna walked down the stairs with a suitcase. She and Valentin heard the sound of an approaching car. The two prepared to say goodbye, and they swore to bring Victor down.

At the same time, in an outdoor area near a house, Witten announced to his men that he had two SWAT agents stationed near the back of the house, and he instructed Dante to get in position to take a shot if necessary. Witten’s team entered the house with a battering ram. Once inside, Witten was stunned to find the place completely empty. Witten yelled for his men to find out how Anna had escaped. Mac asked Witten what he thought had happened. “Either the anonymous caller got it wrong and gave us a bad tip, or they got it right and we got here too late,” Witten snapped.

Dante wondered who had called in the tip. Mac said that Witten had learned a valuable lesson, not to underestimate Anna Devane.

Alone at the docks, Holly flashed back to the sound of two gunshots. Holly was startled when she turned to see Robert. “You’ve got some explaining to do,” Robert told Holly.

 

At the hospital, Spinelli told Sam that he had found a juvenile arrest record for Cody. Spinelli said that Cody’s record hadn’t been uploaded to any databases, and he added that he was more than ready to find out what was in the records.

Maxie confronted Austin regarding the odd number of surgeries he has been performing.  Austin explained that the hospital is simply understaffed but Maxie thought Austin had been avoiding her. 

In her office at the hospital, Britt received a visit from Sam. Britt asked if Sam had come to talk about the necklace. Sam was leery of sharing information about the necklace because Cody was present but Britt gave her blessing, so Sam shared what she knew..

Based on what Sam has uncovered, the necklace had been in Leopold Taub’s possession, and Cody was likely its rightful heir. Sam added that the necklace could have been obtained by Faison and that if a sales receipt were to surface, the necklace could belong to Britt.

Austin knocked, and he asked Britt to step outside with him. Outside Britt’s office, Austin informed Britt that he had located a Canadian expert on Huntington’s disease and that she was driving into Port Charles to discuss the matter with Britt.  Britt began to give the same excuses about how she could possibly meet the doctor today because she had so many things to get done.  Austin implored Britt to meet with the doctor to put the issues to rest.   

Alone in Britt’s office, Sam told Cody that she knew why Cody had forced Spinelli into matching Britt with Cody. “It’s the necklace. That’s what you’ve been after all along, isn’t it?” Sam asked.

General Hospital Updates

Update written by Shane

Sasha and Gladys were sitting at a table at the Metro Court restaurant when Sonny came in. Sasha thanked him for the flowers on what would have been Liam’s first birthday. Sonny said that it was important to remember birthdays.  Gladys joked that Sonny could go right ahead and forget her next one if he liked.  Sonny asked Sasha if she would allow him to say a few words that he knew that Brando would have wanted him to say.  When Sasha nodded, Sonny told Sasha and Gladys that there is nothing more important than family and that Liam would always be in their hearts. 

Sonny asked how the guardianship arrangement was going, and Gladys told him about the deal she had to approve for Sasha at Deception to appease the investors. Sonny wondered if Sasha had seen the changes that the new chef had made in the kitchen yet, and he invited her along for a tour. 

After the tour of the kitchen, Sonny took Sasha aside and admitted that he’d wanted a “one-on-one” with her to check in about how Gladys was really doing as guardian. Sasha responded that, after she and Gladys’ had their initial disagreement over the recent deal, Sasha had realized that Gladys was only trying to protect Sasha’s share in the company. She told Sonny that Gladys’ intentions were genuine and she knew that she was only trying to watch out for her in the long run.

Britt took a sip of her drink at the Metro Court bar and immediately launched back into coughing fits. Brad approached and advised her to do something about the cough, and she snapped, “Which one of us is the doctor?” She apologized and said that she’d had a bad day. She then remarked that she would “never get into heaven” so on that night she wanted to raise hell with Brad. He saw right through the act and wondered aloud what was going on with her.  At first, he quizzed her about Cody, but when Britt asked if he saw Cody, he changed the topic. Selina approached and in typical Selina fashion interrupted their conversation. Selina was pleased to see Brad enjoying a night out after a hard day at work and she was also happy he had a reliable friend. Britt pointedly promised that she had Brad’s back if anyone ever tried to hurt him. Brad looked at Britt like she had officially lost her mind. Selina advised the bartender to put their drinks on her tab, and walked away. 

Brad was shocked at the way Britt had talked to Selina, because as he said no one spoke to Selina like that, at least no one who expected to live long. Britt replied that Selina didn’t scare her anymore and then dropped another bombshell when she casually admitted to Brad that Selina had blackmailed her into insisting that Brad work for her and not for GH. Brad insisted that he actually liked working with his aunt, so both she and Britt had actually done him a favor. He knew that she was dealing with something big and asked how he could help her out in return. She replied that it was nothing that alcohol and music wouldn’t fix. She grabbed his hand, and the two ran out to go to the Savoy.

Gladys approached Selina at a table and said that it was nice to see a “fellow investor.” Selina expressed her sympathy about Brando. Gladys commented that she and Sasha were looking after each other,  after the court had made it clear that what was Sasha’s was Gladys’. Seeing an entrance, Selina mentioned her “private party” she held occasionally at the Savoy, and she wondered how Gladys felt about Texas Hold ‘Em. “I’m not disinterested,” Gladys replied. Selina handed Gladys a card with information about the game and advised her to keep it private.

Sonny and Sasha approached Gladys and Selina, and Sonny mentioned that he  didn’t know that they were acquainted. Selina replied that they were “potential business associates.” “What kind of business?” a suspicious Sonny asked. Selina was glad to see Sasha doing better, and Sasha replied that she was getting help from friends. Selina hoped that Sasha would consider her a friend, as well, and she left as Sonny glared at Gladys. Sasha hugged Gladys for always having her best interest at heart. “Of course. Always,” Gladys replied as she held the card behind her back.

At the police station, Dante was talking with an officer when he spotted Sam. She’d decided to visit him at work, but she insisted that the surprise she had for him should be “private.” They went into the interrogation room, and he was delighted to open the bag she handed him and find “a hoagie from Sal’s.” As he ate, he vented about his assigned investigation into Anna. Sam was surprised when he mentioned that Sonny could be involved, and he asked about any safe houses she could direct him to. Sam said that Anna was a “super-spy” and would be far away from Port Charles by now.

After Dante’s sandwich, the two of them dreamed about winning the lottery and taking the kids on a vacation to Iceland before they became too old to want to go anywhere with them. 

Nikolas let Elizabeth into Esme’s room, and they found Esme passed out on the floor. Elizabeth examined Esme and lied to Nikolas that the baby was in distress, so they needed to call an ambulance or risk a miscarriage. Because Nikolas didn’t like either of those options, Elizabeth advised him to get a knife from the kitchen so she could sterilize it and do a C-section.  “Without anesthesia?” Nikolas replied in disbelief.  “That just seems so inhumane.”  Elizabeth, continuing with the ruse, told Nikolas he needed to get his priorities straight and then she began to “prep” Esme for the procedure. But, at that moment Esme had reached her limit, “Get your grubby paws off me and my baby!” Esme screamed as she came off the floor.

Elizabeth smiled  and gave a sideways glance at Esme, saying she knew that playing Esme would be the only way to cure her. Esme yelled that Elizabeth was supposed to help her, but Elizabeth had zero sympathy for Esme because of what she had done to Cameron. As Nikolas and Elizabeth left the room, Elizabeth was put off by Esme’s cries for help. Esme couldn’t believe she had been outsmarted by Elizabeth.  Esme realized the baby was kicking. She wondered if the baby would be a soccer player. She began to laugh uncontrollably and then the laughter eventually turned to tears.

Downstairs at Wyndemere, Elizabeth asked what Nikolas’ endgame was. Nikolas thought that he would fly Esme to Cassadine Island, where she would live out the rest of her days after giving birth. He begged Elizabeth not to say anything to the police, and when she agreed, he replied that he owed her. Elizabeth insisted that Esme have the baby at Wyndemere, and she would serve as the nurse.

On the phone with Martin, Laura insisted that she was getting some take-out for the two of them, as they were family. She didn’t want to get his hopes up, but she revealed that there were a lot of people risking their lives trying to find Lucy.

Inside Haven Bistro, Robert and Holly were enjoying some private time together without people coming up to tell Holly how pleased they were that she was back. He talked about how worried he was about Anna, who he hadn’t heard from since her escape. Laura arrived and sat down with them while she waited for her take-out order. Laura explained to Holly that she had discovered she had two brothers, and Martin’s relationship with Lucy. Laura continued that Martin was convinced of Anna’s guilt because of the video “evidence.” Holly went on a passionate tirade against gaslighting. When she calmed down, she claimed that she knew what it was like to lose someone, and how many ways there were to lose them. She said she just knew that Anna wasn’t responsible.

Laura commented that Holly sounded sure of herself, and she wondered if Holly knew something that they didn’t. Holly abruptly excused herself to get some air. Laura was suspicious of Holly, but Robert thought that it was a big jump to think that Holly was working with Victor. Laura knew that Robert loved Holly, but she believed that he knew deep down that Holly was hiding something.

Outside, Holly ran through the evening of Lucy’s shooting in her mind: Lucy looking worried, begging for her life, shots being fired, Lucy falling into the water, a woman discarding the weapon and a wig in a bag, and then the woman turns to reveal her true face, it is Holly.
