Diane: I am warning you, Phyllis. Back off.

Phyllis: You’re warning me? Really? Diane, this is one of those teachable moments. Really, it’s teachable. I mean, “back off.” It doesn’t really have a lot of heat. “Back off or…” is really a threat. So you want to try it again?

Diane: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Back off!

Jack: Diane. I can hear you all the way down the hall. What is going on here?

Phyllis: Diane seems to be reconnecting with her authentic self.

Diane: No, I’m sorry, jack. I just — things got a little heated, and —

Jack: Well, try to cool things down would you? Kyle and summer just laid down the law. They made very clear boundaries about this kind of thing. If they’d walked in on this instead of me, you two would be out of a job right now.

******************************************

Traci: [Gasps] Oh. Oh. [Chuckling] Allie. Oh, my god. What are you doing here?

[Both chuckle]

Allie: Terrifying you, apparently.

Traci: No, no, no, no. I’m fine. I mean, my tablet is still dry, and my tea is still wet, so I’m good, but what about you?

Allie: I’m doing okay. Why do you ask?

Traci: Well because I’m used to having this couple of hours to myself in here. You know, I can spread out and I can work and I can procrastinate to my heart’s content because all of you are at jabot.

Allie: Working on anything interesting?

Traci: Yes, as a matter of fact, I am. It is about this brilliant scientist who loves being in the laboratory until one afternoon she’s home instead of at work.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Brando, can you hear me? Brando? Please tell me you didn’t leave me.

[ Door opens ] Brando? You look a lot better. Thanks.

[ Door closes ] I’m so glad that you are out of that icu. Yeah. If only I could get out of this hospital altogether. Can’t wait to get out of here. All in due time, right? Okay. Since you told me about nikolas sleeping with esme, kind of sounds to me like your marriage is over. So have you thought about where you’re gonna go when they discharge you?

[ Knock on door ] Come in. Hey. What brings you by? Just checking in to see how you’re doing. Yeah. Is that reiko? Yeah. Yeah. It was taken at — taken on the mariana islands a long time ago. I see. What’s got you thinking about your late wife? Oh — nurse andrea: Dr. Finn? Yeah? Mr. Sanchez is prepped and ready for you. Oh, I’ll be right there. I’m sorry, dad. This might take a while. That’s okay. I’ll — I’ll walk out with you. Yeah? Thanks. Who are you? Here’s to you. Thank you. First of all, you don’t have to toast me. And second of all, you don’t have to drink a plain iced tea just because I can’t drink. I wanted a glass of iced tea, just like I wanted to celebrate my best friend. Especially after that scoop. “Two victims, one hook.” Definite clickbait. Brava, madame editor-in-chief. I had my reservations at first, but it turns out there was a lot of traffic on the website. And well-deserved. So, how’s kristina doing? What did she think of the article? I don’t even think she read it. What do you mean? You said she walked in on the attack. Is she having a hard time? Just the opposite. She doesn’t think witnessing the attack put her in any danger at all. I did manage to keep her name out of the article. But what if the attacker saw her and didn’t realize that kristina didn’t see the attacker? I don’t like the fact that she’s taking this so lightly. Then again, I’m not surprised at all. She’s always been a very gutsy girl. Even witnessing an attack won’t bring her down. No. She has her mother to do that for her. Alone at last.

[ Sighs ] You’ve sent the waiter away. Does that mean the meal is over? Mm, not at all, my dear. It just means now it’s time to serve ourselves.

[ Sniffling, gasps ] Brando? It’s me.

[ Sighs ] Did you really think I was brando? No. I-I know that it’s impossible. I just can’t believe that he’s gone. Yeah, it’s hard to believe. He was one of a kind. Hey, come on.


I have been thinking a lot about what happens when I’m well enough to leave G.H. Proud as I am of the metro court, and I’m super proud of it, I hate the idea of you camping out in a hotel room, so you’re just gonna have to stay with me. Oh. Well, thanks. But I — you know, I don’t — I don’t want charity, nina. Definitely don’t want pity. Ava, come on. We’re way past that. We have so much dirt on each other. I think by now we’re firmly ensconced in the girlfriends zone. I feel the same way. And friends, they help each other. It’s not charity. There’s no pity. Yeah, I know. But I… you don’t really want to stay with me because you would prefer to go back home to wyndemere. But, ava, nikolas is there. I’m not sure how this happened, but somehow in my trying to warn kristina about potential danger she may be in, I sort of blurted out that she was not living up to her full potential. Music to her ears, no doubt. And then to add to that, I sort of blurted out that she was risking her life for a dead-end job. Well, I’m sure that worked. You didn’t bring up law school? No. Oh, no. She’s sharp. She knew what was happening. And that is just my point. She’s too smart to be spending her life making work schedules for the wait staff. I completely agree. But it is her life. I’m painfully aware of that. Mm-hmm. I will try to do better at keeping my opinions to myself.

[ Laughs ] Good luck with that. Alexis. Yes? Hey, I’m glad I ran into you. I need your help. Nurse andrea: Elizabeth? You’re off today, aren’t you? What are you doing here? Call gladys. We’re okay. We’re okay. How’d you find me? Well, there are two places that brando always wanted to be. One was with you, and the other is in his garage. So I figured if you were looking for brando, you would come here. He really did love this place. I think you giving it to him was the best thing that ever happened to brando. Not at all. You were.

[ Crying ] So there’s more. Whatever you desire. You deserve to be waited on hand and foot. So please, I am utterly at your service. Your wish is my command. Well, I can’T. I mean, this has all been so lovely, and to ask for anything else would just be horrible. No, no, please. Please ask. You must promise me you must always be honest with me, no matter what. Shoe. What? Give me your shoe. No way. Come on, these things are italian.

[ Shoe thuds ]

[ Water splashes ]

[ Grunts ]

[ Screams ]

[ Water splashes ]


Can we talk? What is this about? I’d rather speak in private. Ava.Ava. Fear not, nikolas. I have to be going anyway. Alexis, it was lovely having half a drink with you. Go easy on krissy and yourself. Prince. So, you know, there are therapy apps where you can find a marriage counselor, you can speak to them in person or do it virtually. That’s not what I want to talk about. You said that ava was too proud to forgive a stupid mistake. Do you remember that? I do. Well, I should have listened to you. You understand the way that ava thinks. God help me. Clearly, ava and I, we have a volatile relationship. But when she was attacked, everything crystallized for me. I want ava in my life. I don’t want to lose her. And I take it ava didn’t have the same epiphany. No. That’s why I need some straight talk. Is it time for me to give up on my marriage? Wyndemere is huge. You know? And nikolas and i have lived there together in the past when we were estranged. Is this like the strategy keep your enemies close? Something like that. Alright. You know what? You told me before that you wanted to wait to make nikolas pay for cheating on you. Is now the time? I mean, I’m sure scott is just chomping at the bit to file a generous divorce settlement for you. You know, I, uh — I haven’t spoken to scotty about this yet. Ava jerome, you’re stalling. You’re still in love with your husband. You spoke to gladys? She said to thank you for finding sasha. I, um — I guess I should go home. I just want to stay here. Stay. Go. I felt like — like brando was here, working, like any minute, he would walk through that door with some part that he had forgotten to order. And he would smile and kiss me and say “thank you for waiting.” Like any other day. But brando is gone. And no matter how many times I pretend or wish or try to convince myself that it’s just a horrible nightmare…

[ Crying ] …Brando isn’t here. He’s not anywhere.

[ Sighs ] You know what? It’s like my — my son morgan. Um, with my dad, it was different because I got to say goodbye to my dad, but — but morgan, he was like brando. It was unexpected. It was sudden. One minute he’s here. Next minute he’s gone. We didn’t even have a body to bury. I got to confess something to you. A lot of times I go into crowds, and I — I just want to see him, you know? Sometimes the phone rings… and I think it’s him. How long did you feel that way? Tell you the truth, I still scan crowds for morgan. I just want to be able to see him one last time, you know? My boy, my son. Tell me, lucy, what — what do you want from me? Just — just name it. No, I can’T. I mean, you asked me not to ask you, and so I just — I can’T. I won’t ask you. But you also told me to wait, and I’m so bad at waiting. I’ve never been good at it. And I’m just really brimming with curiosity. You know, I have always just loved a man with a big plan.

[ Chuckles ] So I’m just so excited. Come on. Couldn’t you just give me a teensy, weensy little hint, please?

[ Engine rumbles ] W-what is that? Are we stopping? Well, we certainly shouldn’t be. Mr. Cassadine. What is it? What’s going on? Someone went overboard. (Vo) when you live with moderate to severe crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, your day can be full of reminders of your condition. You weren’t made for uc or crohn’s, but entyvio is. In clinical trials, entyvio helped many people achieve long-term relief and remission. Infusion and serious allergic reactions can happen during or after treatment. Entyvio may increase risk of infection, which can be serious. Although unlikely, a risk of pml, a rare, serious, potentially fatal brain infection cannot be ruled out. Tell your doctor if you have an infection, experience frequent infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. Liver problems can occur. Ask your doctor about entyvio. Entyvio, entyvio, entyvio one prilosec otc in the morning blocks excess acid production for a full 24 hours. Unlike pepcid, which stops working after 9. 24 hour protection. Prilosec otc one pill, 24 hours, zero heartburn. It’s josslyn.

[ Clears throat ] Sonny. Go ahead. What do you want, diane? Gladys said that sasha was here, and I’d like to speak to her. She’s in the office. Brando’s office. S-she doesn’t want — you know, she doesn’t want to deal with anybody. Wants to be left alone. I can wait. I need to go over some legal issues that have arisen with brando’s death. Hell of a time, diane, to be doing business, don’t you think? I’ve been asked to serve as interim counsel. Martin grey is still out of town. We’re dealing with brando’s widow. Why should I trust you to represent her when you grilled me on the stand? Believe me, sonny, I could have gone a lot harder on you. Dex, go. Understand something, sonny. I liked brando a lot. I love the fact that he came into town and — and rescued carly. I love the fact that he became a father figure to — to dev cerci, that boy that you were trying to keep in the country. And then he infiltrated cyrus renault’s organization and saved sasha. All he wanted was to make an honest living. Brando corbin was a hero who deserved a much better hand than the one life dealt him. You’re not gonna get any argument from me there, diane. I am not trying to capitalize on tragedy, sonny. I’m just trying to do right by brando by helping his widow at the request of her lawyer and his grieving mother. And you — you expect me to ignore that you just pretty much — you grilled me on that stand at nina’s hearing. I mean, how could you do that to me? I was fighting for michael and willow. I was doing my utmost to win the case for them, as I would for any client, no matter how ungrateful. Sonny, I have been through thick and thin with you. I have been through good and bad. I have protected you and yours. And I have done pretty much everything except dig a grave in the pine barrens. You sided with michael. Because michael retained me to defend against the petition brought by nina for visitation. And if you will recall, you and nina were not a couple formally at the time, so there was no conflict of interest. And it was you who spontaneously volunteered to testify on nina’s behalf, asked scott baldwin to put you on the stand. I was only cross-examining you the way any halfway competent lawyer would. You laid out…

[ Scoffs ] …My life for everyone to see. That’s personal to me. How can I forget that, diane? In love with nikolas? Oh, hardly. No, I am not the sort of woman that’s gonna let somebody cheat on me and humiliate me and get away with it. Mm. Ava, besides me, who knows that nikolas slept with esme? Besides you, um… just spencer and victor. Well, I doubt they’re gonna throw it into your face if you decide to forgive nikolas. I mean, I won’T. Why are you pushing for me to get back with nikolas? I’m not pushing for you to get back with nikolas. I just — I just don’t want your pride to get in the way of your happiness. It is your prerogative if you want to expose nikolas’ bad behavior or if you want to forgive him. I just want you to be happy. I don’t know if I could live with myself if I gave him another chance. I would be worried, wondering if it could happen again. And I’ve lived with that kind of betrayal in the past. I lost my daughter because of it. I know. We both have made our share of mistakes, and we both have suffered. And we’ve paid terrible prices, haven’t we? But we’re still here. Just barely. No. Listen, you’re on the mend. You are. And it’s pretty amazing that we both found love after everything we’ve been through. It’s kind of like a miracle, isn’t it? So, ava, whether or not you want to forgive nikolas, it’s up to you. But if you still love him… did you know I blackmailed nikolas into this marriage in the first place? That is hardly a foundation for everlasting commitment. Well, your marriage may not have started as a love match, but it’s a love match now. Do you want to give up on your marriage? No. But I’m at the end of my rope. I mean, nothing I’ve said has budged ava even a bit. Well, that’s ’cause talk is cheap.

[ Scoffs ] Is that the best you can do? May I remind you that you came to me? You’re more than welcome to vacate that bar stool for a more nuanced commentary. Okay. I am sorry. I’m just trying to figure out what to do. Do you think that I need to take action? I don’t know what you need to do. I don’t know what you did, and I don’t want to know. I’m just asking you, whatever it was, will it cost ava her pride to forgive you? Definitely. Then you need to give something back. Like what? I don’t know. Something that shows ava that you value your relationship with her to put something on the line, to risk something for her. Just like you’re asking her to swallow her pride in order to take you back. So, I convinced kevin to hypnotize me again because I was on the verge of remembering something. I just didn’t do it in the session. And then I did. Finn, I remembered the face of the woman at the bottom of the stairs. That’s encouraging. Who is she? That’s the thing. I don’t know. You saw her face, but you didn’t recognize her. I cannot place her. I have no memory of this person except for the moment on the stairs. Except I feel like she wasn’t a stranger.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Thanks. That’s, uh — that’s reiko. That’s my late wife. Victor: Are you sure there’s a man overboard? Deckhand: Yes, sir. I saw a body hit the water and told the captain to stop. We’re circling back now. What? Well, what are you doing standing around here for? Come on. Help with the rescue operation, man. Victor, oh, my god! This man could drown! You need to go help. I mean, you’re so strong. Alright. I suppose I should go supervise. Listen, I promise I won’t be too long. Perfect. I’ll be right here when you come back. Go on. Go with the wind. Psst, psst. Come on. He’s gone. He’s gone. He’s gone. Okay, wait a minute. Did you — did you just throw a man overboard? Wait a minute. What happened to your shoe? Don’t worry about it. It was just johann. He never saw us. Don’t worry. No one knows we’re here. That could change any moment. What are you doing here? We’re rescuing you. What if I don’t want to be rescued?


We don’t have time for games, lucy. Victor could be back any moment. We have to go. I cannot go right now because then he’ll know that I am playing him. And he’ll know that you probably set me up to do this whole thing. He is just starting to open up to me. This is obviously the scene of a seduction. Champagne, petit fours. How do you expect this evening’s gonna end, lucy? Yeah, how? I can handle victor. He is putty in my hand. Well, that’s a very expensive gift. It’s really nice, isn’t it? Focus. Okay, listen. I haven’t felt this alive in years. I still got it. Okay, well, there’s no need to keep discussing this. I would like to speak with sasha, but if that is not going to happen, please, please have her give me a call. Diane, wait.

[ Sighs ] Sasha needs a good lawyer. Good?

[ Door opens ] Diane. Hey, honey. I am so, so sorry about brando. I was just telling sonny how much I admired him. Thank you. Now, I don’t want to intrude on your grief, but martin grey is still out of town. So he and your mother-in-law feel that there may be some pressing legal issues that require your prompt attention. So I’ve been asked to serve as interim counsel, if that’s okay with you. I guess. But what is so important that it can’t wait? It’s a confidential matter. It’s okay. You can talk in front of sonny. Alright. It concerns your guardianship. Oh, that’s settled. Brando — your agreement to avoid prison stipulates that you must have a legal guardian. Are you saying, diane, that the agreement is null and void? Am I going to prison? Well, if it isn’t the woman behind the headlines. How’s the response? Good and bad. I think the general public is glad that they were alerted to the fact that there’s a hook-wielding maniac on the loose. The police commissioner, that’s another matter. I’d like to hear more. Are you leaving? You have time to join me for a cup of coffee? Sure. Why not? Elizabeth: This is reiko? Finn: A long time ago. We were both with doctors without borders. It was our first post. She looks so young. Yeah. You don’t talk about her. I know. Never been able to make peace with how she died. Infected with the same disease I was trying to cure. Blackwoods disease. Uh-huh. What brings her up for you now? Um, a case — case I’m working on. It reminded me of something that reiko and I went through when we were posted on the mariana islands. Mariana islands? That’s near guam, right? Yeah. You amaze me. Most — most people don’t even know those islands exist. And when we were there, we had A… a good friend, good doctor, and he… he died of this poisonous snake bite. You okay? You got a headache? Yeah, just a little bit. From the hypnotherapy? Probably. I’m just so frustrated because I have all these little pieces that I can’t quite seem to put together to see the larger picture. It’s okay. It’s coming. Every day you’re learning a little more. None of this makes sense. I need to go home and just lie down for a little bit. I think you’re incredible. We’re gonna find the truth. You are in way over your head, lucy. You can’t underestimate victor. I know, I know. But listen to me. He actually told me that he has plans. Some kind of plans, big plans. And he wants to include me. What plans? I-I don’t know, because the two of you interrupted. But I am getting this close to it. Shh. Someone’s coming. Okay, look, this is your last chance. If you don’t come with us now, you’re on your own. I’m fine. I’m fine. I’m on my own. I got this. I promise. I’ve got this. Oh, oh, oh, oh.

[ Coughing ] Oh, my — oh, my goodness. What — what — what happened? This is awful. What happened? Well, I’m not entirely sure. Johann went overboard, but he isn’t able to tell me exactly how or why. I guess he must have got a concussion when he hit the water. Oh, dear. That’s horrible. Here, drink this. Drink this. Here. Take it. Come on, man. Focus. Tell me what happened. I was on the deck. Maybe I lost my balance? Well, could you have been pushed? I mean, did you see anyone else? I don’t remember seeing anyone. I was… you were? You were what? Having a drink. Oh, my goodness. You were drinking on the job? You know, that is really dangerous. I wasn’t drunk. Alright, come on. You better go back to your state room and dry off. Come on. I’ll call the captain and see if we have a medic on board. I’m sorry for the trouble, mr. Cassadine. Yeah, well, we’ll deal with this later. Oh, dear. Poor johann. You know, alcoholism is such a serious burden. Something’s off.


I only agreed the first time because I trusted brando. Now that he’s gone, it’s — it’s over for me. No, no, no, no. Legally, it’s not. Okay, but sasha should not have to be going through this right now, diane. I completely agree. That is why I am prepared to file a continuance, pending your approval. Do you — do you understand what that means? Yes. And that’s fine. You have my approval. Thank you. Now, do you know where brando kept his copy of your guardianship decree? His office. Or — or maybe our place. He didn’t say. Do you want — you want diane to go in his office and check for the papers and stuff? The sooner we get this sorted, the better. I mean, that is if it’s okay with you. Yes. Okay. Yeah, that’s fine. I should go home. I’m tired. Okay. I’ll take you. Okay. Um, the office is in the back. Copy that. I’m on it. Hey, diane. Thank you. Actually, I have it on good authority that the police commissioner is unhappy with our article. Does it surprise you? I’m not insensitive to her concerns. I just consider warning the public to be a part of the greater good. It doesn’t hurt that the readership is up, does it? 30%. Most people were glad for the warning, and a small amount thought

the invader was fearmongering. The article I read didn’t sensationalize the crimes. It just gave the public the facts. I was very impressed. Now I can sleep at night.

[ Laughs ] I know my opinion doesn’t really matter. Actually, it does. It matters to me. I could use some help. I found sasha. What? I’m confused. What — sasha was missing? Why didn’t someone call me? We’re here at brando’s garage. I’m gonna take her home. Can you meet us there? Yeah, of course. I need to be there. I’ll see you soon. What is that? Is sasha okay? No. I mean, considering. No. Sasha is definitely not okay. And I should be with her.

[ Knock on door ]

[ Sighs] Can we talk? Go. Help sasha. I’ll be okay. Well, say whatever it is you came here to say. But just know that it’s gonna take a lot more than words to make things right between us. I know. That’s why I brought this.


I need you to wait till ms. Miller’s finished. Make sure you lock up. I’m taking sasha home. She gonna be okay? She’s got her family to take care of her. Hey. You ready to go? Yeah, I’m done. Alright. Don’t worry. I’ll take care of things here. What is that? I’m done talking. This is proof of how much I love you. Okay. Zodiac’s docked. Are they coming after us? No, I don’t see any sign of a disturbance. I think we got away clean. Whew. Well, except for the shoe. You’ll live. You’re glowing, you know. Yeah, you smooth talker. You’re really in your element, aren’t you? It’s fun working together. Sorry our rescue attempt fell flat. Oh. Yeah. I mean, I-I wanted victor to be enamored with lucy, but I am still very concerned that putting her in his sights is just such a risk. Well, it was her call. She didn’t want to leave. No. We’re going to keep an eye on the situation. If she needs us, we can help her. I worry that it’s not if, but when. Why don’t we get back on track and resume this date we’re having? Date? Well, now, I’m surprised you call it a date. You seem determined to make it all about business. Well, I don’t know too many business meetings I’ve had where I’ve been presented with diamonds, so I can safely assume that this is a date. You don’t seem angry. Well, I am compelled to tell you that I’m spoken for. And I really am very much in love with marty. However, you are making it very, very difficult to stay true. And I find myself wondering, what would a future with mr. Victor cassadine look like? Well, let’s find out. This coffee is probably the last thing that I need. I’ll be up all night. Not that I need an excuse. I’m still really worried about kristina. She witnessed that attack, and — and that could make her a target. Have you given more thought to your idea about posting an open letter in the invader to try and draw the killer out, get them to give something away, some clue that might help the pcpd to catch them? Then kristina will be safe. I think if we engage the killer, keep them occupied, it might give the police more time to investigate. Start a dialogue, maybe provide a distraction. It’s a fine balance, though. Don’t want to give the attacker a platform. Just enough rope to hang. You know, I’ve been a lawyer for a long time, and I’ve seen cases like this, and I don’t believe for one minute that this killer is done.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

[ Indistinct conversations, down-tempo music playing ] Hey, you. Hey. Hey. Hi. You doing all right?

[ Sighs ] Brando? Anything else happen? Yeah. Well, alexis and i got into it with kristina. You both talked to her? Mostly alexis. Kristina witnessed the attack on brando, and we just — we were just trying to keep her safe, and, you know, it’S… yeah. You just express it differently, in different ways. Right. And she’s an amazing young woman. I-I-I love that she stands up for herself. But… yeah. I know. …I mean, it’s like… right? I know. I know. Hey, guys. I’m — I’m, uh… nina: Hey. …Sorry if I’m interrupting anything. I just, um… wanted to tell you how sorry I am to hear about brando. Thanks. How did carly take the news? I have no idea. I haven’t spoken to carly in a couple days.

[ Sighs ] Come on, come on, come on. All right.

[ Cellphone chirps ] Whew! [ Claps hands ] All right. Oh. Oh, gosh. Wow. That’s a lot.

[ Exhales deeply ] Hey, joss. It’s me. Um, well, I’m still in jacksonville, and I now have a phone. Gosh, I could have used you when I was trying to download everything from the cloud. But so far, so good. Call me when you get this, okay? I love you.

[ Beep ] Drew: Carly.

I’m sorry I missed your call. I’m here whenever you can talk.

[ Beep ]

[ Beep ] Sonny:

Carly, it’s me. Call me back.

[ Beep ]

[ Footsteps approaching ] Peyton: Why on earth are you still here? Was lucy expecting victor? She seemed surprised to see him, so I don’t think so. Do you know where they were headed? Oh, no. Sorry. How long ago did they leave? Maxie: I don’t know. A little bit ago. To be honest, lucy was definitely trying to get rid of him, but victor — just wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. Let’s just say he was…persistent.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, you two. What’s going on and how worried should I be? This — this is just too much.

[ Chuckles ] Nonsense, my dear. For a woman such as yourself, the whole world would not be enough. Well, I did used to believe that, and then I saw the whole world. But th– it — it’s — it’s amazing. You know, when you said a business lunch, I really thought…salads, arnold palmers.

[ Chuckles ] If that’s all you expected from an afternoon with me, then it is high time we got better acquainted.

[ Thud, metal creaking ]

[ Gasps ] Oh! Whoa! My g– my goodness. What was that? Oh, it was probably the — the ship unmooring. Oh. And — and why would the ship unmoor? Well, to — to set sail, my dear. Soon we shall be miles from port charles. Elizabeth. Hi. Are you all right? I’m better. Well, good. Um, I look forward to picking up where we left off. That’s why I’m — I’m here. I keep thinking about yesterday’s session and how I remembered that man who I think is my father being at the top of the stairs when that woman fell. I mean, that was a huge breakthrough. Yes, it was. We made a lot of progress. Unfortunately, memories can be a little tricky. The only way to really verify what happened is for you to reach out to your father. And I will if I have to. But for now, I have a better idea. But for it to work, I’ll need your help. Jordan: I’m only conferring with you about the results of the toxicology report because you were brando’s doctors and you could be of help to this investigation. So no discussing with family or friends. No leaking to the press. Let’s keep this between us. Are we good? Of course. Yes. Yes. Good. Now, someone killed brando with a poisoned hook. Any thoughts? May I see that? The toxin — it — it seems vaguely familiar. I just don’t know why. Because the assailant didn’t use just any toxin. Whoever you’re looking for has got a real imagination for murder.


You’ve mostly practiced in big cities, right? Yeah. Yeah. Why? What is this, a country poison? You could say that. It’s a kind of venom. Like from a snake? Well, you’d have to do further tests to determine the genus and species, but the origin is definitely a reptile. And you know this why? Well, I’ve never run into something like this in a modern clinical setting, but, you know, in the past, there’s been warrior cultures that used venom to poison their spears, some untouched indigenous cultures still do to this day. That’s right — to protect themselves from missionaries and interlopers. I watch the science channels. But we aren’t talking about ancient warfare or protected tribes. I’ll check the databases, but I don’t recall any serial-killer profiles that include any of this. So you do believe this is the work of a serial killer? I called carly yesterday a couple times, actually, and — and I just never heard back. I take it you guys haven’t heard from her, either. I called her. She — she never called me back. Okay. I’ll just check in with michael, see if his mom reached out to him, then. You got her involved in that — what is it called? It’s that, uh, seminar. The leadership-seminar thing. Yeah. You got contacts for that? I do. Yeah. I’ll call mia. S-she’s the leader of the whole program. She set the whole thing up. I’ll just tell her that it’s a family emergency. I’m only worried ’cause carly wouldn’t ignore me in a dangerous situation. No. You don’t — sonny, you don’t have to explain to me why you’re concerned about carly. Neither does drew. I’m a guest at this hotel. I have every right to be here. Oh. This place used to have better standards. You still working on your gala, or were you and the other ladies who lunch meeting about community resources? What’s next? Designated picnic area for those making under six figures? Oh, actually, the jacksonville beautification guild is known for our charity work. Yeah, when they’re not digging up souls from their eternal resting places. I had no idea virginia was buried in that cemetery. Great. That’s great. Since you have no vested interest, either way, you can reconsider. I’m afraid it’s too late. Why? The measure to move the cemetery wasn’t unanimous. All you have to do is hold another vote. No, I-I don’t think there’s anything to worry about. I’m just a little surprised. I knew lucy and my father were acquainted. I hadn’t realized they were lunching together these days. Can you reach her, please? ‘Cause she’s not picking up my calls, and I-I just need to have a chat. Is this about deception? Potentially. Yeah. Yeah. Mm-hmm. Um, do you know when she’ll be back? I don’t suppose you have any important business meetings she has to return for. Oh, I don’t, but lucy might. I can check with her assistant. That’d be great. Thank you. Thank you so much.

[ Telephone beeps ] Maxie: Does lucy have many appointments today? This is on me. This is just — I should never have done this — pushed her to get information from victor. He’S… he’s too dangerous. I think lucy can handle herself. What? Robert’s people wouldn’t take this, and they’re professionals. Also, check any sticky notes, scratch paper, napkins. Sometimes she writes things down there. Okay. Look. You know your father better than me. So…this unexpected lunch date — could it be because he’s figured out lucy has an agenda? Well, if I did… victor certainly could. So, what do you think of the venue? Ah! The, um, haunted star. It’s interesting. Oh. Just interesting? Okay. Rather inspired. Because isn’t this the very vessel that first brought you to port charles and — oh. Shh. Shh.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Chuckles ] Yes. So many, many, many years ago. I mean, that is before the dearly departed helena cassadine gifted it to your nemeses, luke and laura, on their wedding day.

[ Chuckles ] That’s right. Of course! You literally wrote the book on all this. You bet I did. So, here we are. And, you know, if I didn’t know better — which I’m not saying I do know better — I would think… that you just abducted me. Is that a bad thing?

[ Chuckles ] Well, I haven’t been kidnapped in a very long time. I suppose I could use a refresher. Hm. You are a charmer, aren’t you? Please.

[ Laughs ] Thank you. And you, sir, are a master of understatement. But, um, do tell, really — what are we doing here right now? I mean, on this particular vessel. Well, I have rented out the entire ship so we won’t have any interruptions. Ah! How very gracious of you, when you could have just taken it.

[ Chuckles ] Oh! And I see you also brought your goombah. Hello, goombah. Champagne? Oh! Uh, of course. Thank you so much. You know, I’m just curious, though — do all your business lunches include bubbly and…boat rides? Well, neither you nor I, ms. Coe, are what I would call traditionalists. That’s one of the reasons I feel we’ve been drawn to each other. So, shall we, uh, enjoy our champagne? We shall indeed. And we can watch the sun set over the water from the main deck. Sunset? Ah. How — how long is this lunch? Well, uh, I have taken the liberty of checking your schedule, and you are free for the rest of the day. Mm. Yes. You are correct. I don’t really have any plans. Except, you know, if you want to mention…work. And your lawyer acquaintance is still out of town? So it’s settled, then. You’re all mine.


Okay. No meetings written down in lucy’s day planner, sticky notes, scratch paper, or napkins. But that doesn’t really mean anything. She frequently doesn’t write things down and still manages to show up. Did her assistant catch where they were going, maybe? No. No. She wasn’t in the room when victor was here. But now that I’m thinking about it, it is really weird that lucy actually went with him. We’re kind of in crisis mode with everything going on with sasha, and it’s really not like lucy. Of course, you know, drew’s concerned. Him and carly are friends or — I don’t know what they are. Well, sonny, from the look of what happened at the picnic, they’re a lot more than friends. You’ve mentioned that before. And I’m just — I’m just saying it again, because maybe drew’s investment in carly’s well-being is more than he’s letting on. Wait. So carly never even checked in? Do you know what happened? Oh. Where did the plane land? Okay. All right. Well, um, thank you very much, mia. I’ll find her. Here’s hoping she didn’t get into too much trouble. The process of moving the cemetery has already begun. Oh, you were given ample notice. Same as all the other families.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

[ Sighs ] That’s not the point. The point is, my mom had one burial request — to be buried near the water in her hometown. Virginia also probably wanted to have her grave tended to on a regular basis. Well…we know what happened there. And I wanted a happy, healthy marriage. You spoiled that, too. I guess we can’t always have what we wanted. Okay. I was trying to be nice. But if you want to do this the hard way, that’s fine with me. I still haven’t been able to recall that woman’s face. That’s frustrating. I know. If you hypnotize me again and we revisit that memory, I think what I saw will become clearer. Well, we can concentrate on recognizing those faces during our next session. Can we do it now? I’m afraid not. I have an appointment in 10 minutes. Kevin, I-I know this isn’t an emergency, but I can’t sleep. I’m not eating. I haven’t lost time since our last session, but who knows when that’ll happen again? And I understand. This process can really take a toll. How did that woman get to the bottom of the stairs? And is that man I can’t see my father? Whoever it is, is that person still a threat to someone? I really feel like we should figure out these answers as soon as possible. Kevin, please. I wouldn’t ask if I wasn’t desperate. I’ll cancel my appointment.

[ Exhales deeply ] I don’t want to jump to conclusions, especially since the weapon used in ava’s attack wasn’t poisoned — with venom or otherwise. But you do believe it to be the same assailant?

The invader’s “anonymous, well-placed source” certainly seems to think so. Regardless, it’s too soon to say. A serial killer may have as few as two victims but are usually defined by a cooling-off period in between attacks. These were very close together. Why would a perpetrator employ different methods between attacks? In my analysis, whoever did this was disappointed that ava survived. So they upped the ante to make sure their next victim didn’T.


Ant chatterhas given me the need to check on my daughter. And don’t worry. I won’t mention any details of the case. I want her to be able to sleep at night. Hey, look, commissioner. I’d like to — we’re likely dealing with a violent repeat offender whose modus operandi is growing more lethal. Which is why I believe that whoever furnished the quote to the invader was simply trying to warn the public. Yes. All any of us want is to mitigate risk and prevent injury. Of course. But crucial information needs to be kept under wraps. This helps us separate the lunatics who confess from the real perpetrators who might want to toy with us. No kidding? You got phony confessions? Since the invader article. But they don’t know about the venom on the hook. Hey, nor — nor will they. The last thing I want to do is compromise your investigation. We’re all worried about our families, dr. Finn. I imagine this must hit pretty close to home for you. I mean, I used to see tj and brando around the hospital. They got in a fight over there in one of the hallways one day. I remember. Yeah. But, I mean, they seem to have gotten pretty friendly. I guess they worked everything out. I suppose they did. Seeing a man so close to my son’s age cut down in his prime… that really makes it more personal for me. We can continue to escalate, or we could search for some common ground. So why don’t you let me buy you a drink and we can discuss this? Are you sure you can afford it? Excuse me? Oh, well, we have google here in jacksonville, too. It was nice! Uh, the hotel you…used to own. The kind of place that would attract visitors. I imagine at some point you were even a leader in port charles society, someone who would understand the need for civic improvement. And now — oh, just look — look how the mighty have fallen. Oh, lamont, uh, would you get the…lady a — whatever she wants. Don’t worry, darlin’. It’s on my tab. I want to discuss something with you. Okay. You need security. Oh, sonny. No. Until we catch the guy. I’m fine. No. Famous last words.

[ Sighs ] Okay. Can I just hire my own security, then? I’m gonna have to do the background check anyway, so just let me hire the people that I want. Come o– I just — humor me. You know what? I don’T… I, uh — I tried carly again. Still no answer. All right. Thanks for trying. Yeah. Of course. Of course. Um…I will see you two around. He never said if he talked to that mia woman who ran the seminar. It’s none of our business. Right. None of our business. But you know who is my business is sasha, and I’m really worried about her. Yeah. So am I. I mean, she’s gone through so much, and… now that brando’s gone, you know… she needs all of our support. If she needs anything — and I’m — I’m serious — if she needs anything, I’m here for her. And part of that support team is carly. So…do you know when she’s gonna come back from aruba?

[ Cellphone ringing ] Oh. Let’s — let’s find out right now. Hey, carly. I’ve been trying to get ahold of you. So, where are you? Uh, take one of the guys with you. Okay. Well, brook lynn has no idea where lucy could be headed. Well, thanks for checking. Thank you. She did say that lucy tweeted something like 20 minutes ago. “Follow your stars,” accompanied with a jack-o’-lantern emoji — not a pumpkin, a jack-o’-lantern — with no stars, in september, a month before halloween.

[ Chuckles ] I mean, what does that even mean? I don’t know. Thank you, though, maxie. I really appreciate it. Yeah. You’ve been a big help. Uh… halloween. Hmm. Valentin is a brilliant strategist, and I’m so fortunate to be working with him. I also think… that he’s extremely handsome and charming and savvy and even sometimes a tad bit ruthless. I can certainly see where he gets that from. I bet you’re so proud of him. Well, it’s true. Valentin does take after me in some respects.

[ Chuckles ] But I’m afraid even family can disappoint. Oh, no. That’s horrible. H-how? I can’t see how valentin could possibly disappoint you. That’s sad. Well, one would assume that blood would engender unwavering loyalty. But, sadly, that is not always the case. Which is why it is so important to forge other bonds — with, uh — with you, for instance.

[ Chuckles ] Oh. Thank you. No. I couldn’t possibly eat another morsel, really. You know, what I could use is a power walk to walk off all this amazing, delicious food. Will we be heading back to dry land soon? I certainly hope not. Our afternoon… is just getting started.


But that was your halloween costume last year, james. A pirate would be so much more fun. Yeah, of — of course you could wear a fake parrot. C-can we talk about this later? Your aunt nina just got here. Okay. Love you. Bye. Fake parrot? Geez. Like you’ve ever said no to james.

[ Laughing ] Never. Never. Hi! Hi. It’s so good to see you. Nice to see you. What’s up? Well, I actually need your opinion. Ooh. Okay. Uh, fall fashions — I’m your gal. Advice on your love life — you should know better. No, it’s not that. I’M… I’m just trying to figure out the best way to help sasha. Oh, well, in that case, I’m the last person you should talk to. If you’re in jacksonville, what took you so long to respond to your messages? I lost my phone. I left it on the plane. But you know our — our — our numbers. Why couldn’t you borrow a phone? I called josslyn after I landed. I figured everybody else could wait until I got my replacement phone. Why? What’s going on? Is everything okay with donna and avery? Yeah. The girls are fine. Uh…brando isn’T.

[ Indistinct conversations ] You know, in the spirit of full disclosure, the venom element makes this kind of personal for me, too. How so? How so? Just out of medical school, I accepted a doctors without borders posting to the mariana islands. In micronesia. Yes. That’s a very remote location. It is. It is, but I was, uh — I was with my wife. Uh…my — my late wife, reiko. She was also a doctor. And we both felt very strongly that we could do some good work there. While we

were on the island,we had a very good friend — good doctor. He died a very painful death from a snakebite. So what we just discovered about brando has… has brought all that back up. The person at the top of the stairs — are they still there? Yes. Can you see their face? No, not clearly. In our last session, you said you might know the woman at the bottom of the stairs. Can you try to see her face again? Take your time. Is she moving? No. I still can’t see her face. Can you get closer? I’ll try. Can you see her face now? Elizabeth? Elizabeth.


[ Grunts ] Whose boat was that we just took? It was a zodiac. Okay. Whose zodiac was that we just took? I know people. Really? What do you mean, “really?” Well, we just grabbed it so qckly, I assumed we hadn’t had permission. You sound disappointed. I am a little, yeah. We’ll steal a boat next time. I’m really worried about lucy. Well, listen. My father is a despicable human being and capable of horrible acts. But he’s not gonna take advantage of lucy, because he’s the type who prefers his conquests to surrender. Ew. You honestly think he sailed her out into the open waters with her permission? I think that this is a grand romantic gesture. And I think that as long as he hasn’t discovered her deception, she’s perfectly fine. But your father’s like a bloodhound, sniffing out people’s weaknesses. And lucy’s, you know… practically advertises hers. Right. He’s perfectly capable of exploiting her worst instincts. Victor: May I? Lucy: [ Exhales deeply ] It’s — it’s staggering. It’s simply stunning. And shiny and sparkly and some other “s” word. What have I done to deserve this? That remains to be seen. Oh. Oh — ohh. Oh. Oh, um…mr. Cassadine, I’m not sure what kind of impression you have of me, but, um, yes, I have had a very colorful and imperfect past. A real page-turner, if I do say so myself. But I am always and still will be always a lady. Oh, without question. And please. I apologize if I implied otherwise or if my intentions appeared anything other than — honorable? Please accept this gift as, um, merely a-a tangible token of the alliance that we are about to forge together. An alliance? Do tell. I’m sure you must have noticed by now, my dear, that I am not a man to do anything in half measures. And that includes my plans for the future. Hmm. What kind of plans? Something big is coming. One might even say… earth-shattering. Earth-shattering? Really? Well, uh, tell me. Are you going to be the man steering the ship, so to speak? Let me say just this right now. We’re heading into rough waters, and the only way we can save all souls aboard is with me at the helm. Now, I was hoping that my ship would be crewed by fellow cassadines. But it seems they can’t be relied upon. I need a first mate, lucy, and I think that could be you. Portia: Oh, jordan. I didn’t know you were still here. Is there, um, anything else that I could do to help regarding brando’s case? No. I wanted to thank you for requesting the tox screen. Without it, we wouldn’t have discovered the cause of death for brando, so… well, I’m just glad I followed my instincts on that one. This latest bit of information is so distinct. It’s like a signature. Hopefully, it’ll help us to identify who the killer is. Well, if there’s anything else I can do to help… I’ll let you know. Whatever it takes to get to the truth. I’m glad to hear we’re both on the side of truth. Elizabeth, answer me. Do you want to end this session? All right. I’m going to count backwards from five. When I get to one, I will clap my hands, and you’ll wake, remembering everything. In five, four, three, two…

[ Claps hands ] …One. Nod if you’re with me. Mm-hmm. Gave me a bit of a start there. You okay?

[ Exhales deeply ] Yeah. I know exactly what I need to do. Look, lately, all I’ve done is hurt sasha, not help her. Maxie, how can you say that? Well, things really started going downhill when lucy suggested it would be best for deception if sasha took a major step back — especially as spokesmodel. Look, I’m not — I’m not blaming lucy. I’m actually blaming myself. I wasn’t fully on board with the idea, but I went along with it anyway. Well, in all fairness, we know that sasha needs help — more than she’s willing to accept. So maybe not having to focus on work is a good thing. Yeah, but that’s not why we did it. We did it for the bottom line, not to help our friend. Yes, sasha needs help. But what if the help she needs is a purpose, not a kiss-off? I — maxie, you didn’t kiss her off. Yeah? How do you know that? Yeah. I know that because I know you, and you don’t kiss people off. Even so, we professionally pushed sasha away when she personally needed us the most. And I-I wasn’t even able to be at the meeting where we informed sasha. Lucy had to do it alone. Sasha was so upset. She had another public meltdown. And now, on top of losing a child not even a year ago, she’s lost brando. How many times is this poor woman’s heart gonna be shattered? Oh, my god. Poor sasha. And gladys. How are they doing? Devastated. We’re all doing the best to take care of them. It just doesn’t make sense. Brando was one of the good guys. I’m sorry, sonny. I’m so sorry. I know how close you guys were becoming and how much you both loved mike. At least they’re together now. First ava, now brando? Why? Jordan thinks this, uh, nutjob might be targeting people close to me. What? All right. That’s it.I’m on the first flight home. No, you’re not.


[ Exhales deeply ] Maxie, you… you couldn’t have known that this was gonna happen. You’ve been trying to help sasha through this really tough period. Yeah, but everything I do seems to make matters worse because of this company. I feel so cold-blooded. Okay. Look at it this way. You are protecting sasha’s livelihood during this crisis. There’s got to be something else I could do to help, something to show that I actively support sasha. There is. Just do whatever she needs, even if she pushes you away. Yeah, I know. Trust me. I know what it’s like. I mean, when nathan was killed… well, you remember. Yeah. There’s so much that needs to be done. Yeah. Maxie, there’s one thing that’s gonna be too difficult for sasha and gladys to do, something that requires a master planner like you. Right. This is horrible. A week ago, I was drafting a guest list for sasha and brando’s wedding reception. Now I’m gonna use that list for his funeral. The girls are safe. Josslyn too. I got around-the-clock security on all of them. What about michael?

Well, michael has

his own security

and doesn’t need my help. But I’m looking out for him. All right. Well, it’s just really hard not coming home when there’s a homicidal maniac targeting our family. Carly, you’re safer where you are. I’m in jacksonville, florida. I know I can’t stop you from coming back, and I know you hate jacksonville. Do me a favor. Do not come back until I give you the all-clear. You’ll keep me posted? Always. Thank you.

[ Indistinct conversations ] Homicidal maniac? Sounds like your family needs you. Oh, pity you must go. I’m not going anywhere until I’m sure virginia is staying right where she is in that cemetery. That’s not up to you. I know it’s been quite a few years since you knew me, mrs. Roberts… that’s no longer my name. …But I’m not impressed or intimidated by you. And the one thing that hasn’t changed? I’m still really good at raising hell. So if you think you regretted knowing me then… just wait. Hm. You know, I do so love a man with plans and a vision. Could you just perhaps share your nefarious plans with me? I mean… I’m so excited to hear them. You’ve got me curious, and i don’t even know what they are. Oh, I would like nothing more. I just wish I knew who I could trust. Oh, I see. I-I really did truly think we were building a rapport. And so we are, and I look forward to deepening our connection. But you have to understand. A-a man in my position, I… I need to be judicious. Mm. I see. Especially with your grand designs. Speaking of designs. Johann? Why don’t you, uh, enjoy some air outside? Yes, boss. Alone at last. I think we’ll find lucy and your father in the main room. Unless we find them in a stateroom. Ew. What? You said it yourself. My father’s very persuasive. Do you think we should split up? Oh. Door.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

[ Pop music plays ] Enough. He’s perfect the way he is.

[ Drum roll ] Curtis: Ladies and gentlemen, sisters and brothers, hold your hats or hold a hand, because coming to the savoy stage with a brand-new jam is a hot new star who’s on the rise. So kick back and enjoy what you see with your eyes or what you hear from his captivating production. And without further ado or any more introduction… put your hands together and let the music do the talking!

[ Cheers and applause ] They’re ready for you. Brook lynn… they can wait. Problem is, I can’t wait another minute to be with you. Lucy: Earth to brook lynn.

[ Slams fist on table ] Brook lynn? Yes. I’m — I’m so sorry.

[ Clears throat ] Can you please repeat that? Okay, where were you just now? Right, because you certainly weren’t here.

[ Chuckles lightly ] What are you doing? W-what’s wrong with you? You tell me. What happened to brando? Hey, uh, any word on brando’s cause of death? No, nothing yet.

[ Sighs ] Sorry, work. Uh, I assume, uh, you were up all night. Hard to stop the press when you have late-breaking news.

[ Papers rustle ] Anna: Yeah. Thanks for the use of your contacts. I have feelers out. I know. Let’s just say that I knew this wasn’t going to be easy. Yeah. I — it’s — it — it appears to be more dangerous than I anticipated. Yes, of course I’m being careful.


Stop worrying, robert, please. Why don’t you take that energy and focus it on finding the person that attacked ava and killed brando? Yeah, I’ll be in touch. Thank you. Bye. Oh, sorry for startling you. I don’t want to interrupt your phone call. Uh, you know, maybe in order to avoid any future misunderstandings, you might want to leave the sharp objects at home. I just picked this up from the marina shop. It’s the same brand and type missing from the quartermaine property. Mm-hmm. Like the weapon used on ava and brando? That’s the theory. I’m on my way to G.H. To speak with the medical examiner. Oh, okay. Well, if you need any assistance, you know how to reach me. Thanks.

[ Sighs ] But the matter I need off my plate is one I need to handle myself. As soon as I get this mess sorted out with jordan and my divorce papers… we will get married. Is there anything that I can do to help? Well, no. I spoke with jordan last night. And how did that go? Well, uh, let’s just say the divorce papers won’t be an issue.

You didn’t really answer my question. [ Chuckles ] Does jordan feel as you do? I don’t mean to be intrusive —

no, no, you’re not. My relationship with jordan isn’t only ours — you’re a part of that, too. I’ll tell you all about it

[Sighs] When I see you. Just be careful out there. Always. Selina: Mr. Ashford… it seems things are getting dangerous in port charles. Michael called me last night and said brando was attacked, but that he was gonna be fine. By the time I got through to sasha, brando was dead and she was in pieces. I know. I understand. Everyone here is in shock, as well. One — you know, one minute, brando was conscious and in good spirits, and the next thing you know, he was coding. How does something like that happen? I don’t know. Trying to find out. Dr. Robinson sent out his bloodwork. We’ll — we’ll try to find the cause. And until you do, if you do, brando’s family is suffering, and that mystery is only gonna add to their grief. The invader quoted an anonymous general hospital source, which means somebody here knows enough to talk to the press about the fact that ava and brando were attacked with a hook, and I want to find that person and talk to them myself. To what end? So I can find out who killed sasha’s husband. That’s kind of the job for the cops, and… you’re no longer a cop. Phew. I got the last sparkling water. You’ll have to tell the runner to get another case. I’m sorry. Ugh. Why can’t the fridge in the break room adequately chill a-a simple sparkling water? I mean, how are we supposed to be our best or most creative when we’re not even sufficiently hydrated? Speaking of our best… lucy and I were just discussing, uh, brando.

[ Sighs ] Poor sasha. Poor gladys. Yeah, it’s horrible — and poor social media response for deception — or lack thereof. Right. Well, I-I did — I did draw something up this morning, and I can send it right over, you know, before I publish it. No, no, no. You — you don’t have to send it to lucy or me. Just send it out now. Yeah. Don’t you want to weigh in on something this sensitive regarding a partner? No, uh — that’s the point. Something this sensitive, timeliness is crucial. Well, I just found out about brando this morning. And why is that? Because we called you last night. We texted you, we e-mailed you, and then we called you again. Well, I-I turn my phone off at 9:00 — you know, work-life balance, right?

[ Laughs nervously ] Okay, that’s — that’s true, but isn’t it kind of possible that maybe you’re focusing more on your life and not work? Yeah, like, maybe 101% for life and -1% for work. Okay, we feel like maybe your heart isn’t totally with deception. Like, maybe it’s totally with… chase. I’m sorry about brando. Yep, me too. How’s sasha? Is this on the record? Well, no — no, I’m sorry. I just don’t want to be blindsided. I meant to give you a heads up, and time got away from me. So what can I do to make amends? Sasha — she’s having a hard time. So if you just — you know what I’m saying? Keep that in mind. I will do my best. I mean, we’re always gonna, you know, agree on what’s best for our daughter. Absolutely. Speaking of which… let’s go. Oh. Victor: Well, you know, in england, if you mispronounce that word, you’re sent to the tower of london and your head’s cut off.

[ Kristina laughs ] Well, it’s true.

[ Chuckles ]


I think we should agree on a plan of action first.

[ Laughs ] No, no. You and i are going to stay out of this. What are you doing?! That’s my daughter. And victor is your uncle. That makes him kristina’s great-uncle. I’ve spent more time than I want to as my father’s lieutenant. It’s better to stay on his good side. Trust me — let sonny take care of the bad. You are so totally wrong.

[ Chuckles ] What’s victor wrong about? Hi, dad, hi, baby. I was just teaching great-uncle victor the correct pronunciation of the word “scoune.”

[Scone]

[ Sighs ] And I was telling kristina that in europe, we call it “sconn.”

[Scone] But in america, my daughter is correct. Back to work for me, uncle vic. Glad you enjoyed your scone.

[ Chuckles ] Well, always a pleasure, but I must be off. Victor, victor, victor. How many times do I gotta tell you?

[Whispering] Stay away from my family. Oh, well, I’m afraid, like it or not, kristina is my family, as well. Natasha. Ready?

[ Dramatic music plays ] Way to kick a guy when he’s down, bro.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, I’m sorry, bro. I don’t like saying it any more than you like hearing it, but the reality is, you’re not — you’re not part of this investigation. Sasha and I bonded when were trying to help michael and willow, and now she is going through hell, and — and there’s gotta be some way I can help her. Yeah, I-in a way the police can’T. I mean, do you got a lead? I mean, is there somewhere you can go that they can’t? Come on, bro, you know the drill. Alright, say you do some digging around and you find something. Without a badge, without a warrant, without jurisdiction — that piece of evidence gets invalidated, they could throw the whole case out, alright? And then you can really kiss your law enforcement career goodbye. If you are implying that I am trying to solve this, to make myself look good to the higher-ups, you could not be more wrong. I’m not angling to use brando’s death to get my badge back. I know that. Look, all I’m trying to say is the pcpd, they need a good cop like you back on the force, not out in the cold for good. And who knows when or if I will get reinstated? I mean, what am I supposed to do in the meantime? Be there for sasha. She’s got plenty of people there to comfort her. All I have is time and frustration. If I were you, I would spend time with someone I care about, and I would channel that energy into a cause that makes a difference. I know you have both. You’ re accusing me of shirkingmy work duties for a guy? Let’s see. Yesterday, all morning, you spent looking at chase wallpaper to select it for your computer screen. Oh, and somehow, our call waiting music — oh, it’s now chase’s demo. Yeah, and everyone who’s had to wait on hold has thanked me for it. You know, since when is it a crime to enjoy a relationship? Okay. Lucy and I, we are happy for you and chase. So, so, so happy, and it’s okay to focus on your boyfriend sometimes. But really, you are spending our work time promoting chase’s career and his music, okay? So if you don’t start promoting and taking care of deception and stop mooning over chase and doing everything about his work and his career, then we’re gonna just part ways — fire you. You want to fire me? No! No! We are not going to fire you. Okay, but you better

[Tapping on table] Get your head back in the game now.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Duly noted. I do have to run. What? No! Where are you going? Uh, to get my head back in the game. I’ll see you guys. Wait, wait, wait, wait. But — alright, so I’m guessing that the matter on your plate is the life-changing information you gathered on curtis that’s likely causing a lot of problems. My own problems continue to multiply, despite having kept the information to myself.

[ Sighs ] So when you took a long, hard look at why you wanted to disclose said matter, you didn’t like what you saw in yourself. My self-examination got derailed by a tough question from curtis. He asked if I’m trying to hold on to our marriage. What gave him the idea that you might be? A volunteer postal worker. And that’s all I’ll say about that. Okay. What did you tell him? Did you lie? I told the truth.

[ Sighs ] It just wasn’t the answer to the question he asked. Ms. Wu, is there a poker game going on in the back that I’m not aware of? It’s a bit early in the day for a high-stakes poker game. Then I can’t imagine a good reason why you would be in my nightclub. I do have a reason, just not a good one. Hope you know what you’re doing. Well, apart from a lesson in pronunciation, I was just offering kristina my professional assistance in the wake of her close brush with a murderer. It would be a mistake to provoke sonny corinthos.

[ Chuckling ] I can’t believe you’re intimidated by a local mob kingpin. Sonny pursues his own ends quietly, but he is dangerous when he’s provoked. Which is why I’m keeping you around. Amongst other reasons. Ah, nice seeing you. Let’s, uh, reconnect soon. No, no, no. You were gonna give me a date when I could visit charlotte. I will. But right now, I have a more pressing issue to attend to.

Adieu.


So what do you want from me now? Has curtis given you any trouble? Nah, just a misunderstanding. I, uh — I ran into a singer — harrison chase. You heard of him? The detective on suspension. Yeah. Uh, good singer, good guy. I thought he’d be a good fit for the savoy. I appreciate you thinking of us and making the connection. I’m sure curtis will, too. An apology.

[ Scoffs ] I’ve seen you twice since your engagement to dr. Robinson and you never said a word. I had to hear about it from my nephew. Apparently, that’s all anyone is talking about. Oh, you exaggerate, selina. Dr. Robinson is a very lucky woman. But I wish you had shared your intentions with me. Why? I could have connected you to a fine jeweler that I know. And, um, how much would that favor have cost me? No favor. A courtesy from one partner to another. You see, partners are equal, but clearly, we are anything but that. I’m open to expanding your role in my organization. No thanks, selina. I prefer my independence. If life has taught me anything, it’s that independence is an illusion. If you won’t take my gift, then accept another, to honor your engagement.

[ Sighs ] You’ve done enough. You don’t even know what it is.

[ Footsteps approaching ] Hi. I hope we’re not late. Jordan: Of course I still love curtis. It wasn’t my choice to end the marriage, but… he couldn’t forgive me for keeping too many things from him.

[ Buoy bell ringing, waves crashing ] Why are you still keeping secrets from him? If I told curtis what I know, it could destroy his relationship with portia. And where does that get me? Gratitude? A second chance with him?

[ Scoffs ] Unlikely to get either. What about your own self-respect, jordan? I wouldn’t feel proud of myself for hurting two people that are in love. So [Sighs] I’ve decided that curtis and portia’s relationship is no longer my business. Perhaps not. But is curtis’s happiness your business? Perhaps? I mean, you — you had a great marriage when you were together, didn’t you? You still love and respect him. You just said that. But by withholding this information from him, you’re basically deciding what he can and cannot handle, what he should and shouldn’t know. I mean, is that fair?

[ Sighs ] Thanks for listening. I’ll always listen. Uh, forgive me for intruding. Commissioner, is there something you want to tell us? Actually, I do. Be careful. We know the how of ava jerome and brando corbin’s attack, but we don’t know the why, which makes it harder to predict who might be the next target. Hi. Hey. Wait. Aren’t you off today? Oh, I-I don’t really know. Is it today or yesterday? Tomorrow? I-I have no idea. You never left the hospital?

[ Sighs ] Britt and, um, terry had their hands full with the police, and I volunteered to take over. I wish you would have told me. So you could stick around and relieve me? No, I-I know that you had a prior commitment with your daughter. It’s true. And besides, trina’s back in the dorm, curtis is working late, and with everything that’s going on around here… yeah, you prefer the hustle and bustle of the hospital. Focusing on work helps keep my mind off of things, like what really happened with brando. I went over everything, finn. I w– I went over all of his vitals, the post-op reports. He should have made a full recovery. I’m hoping the tests the lab ran last night is gonna provide some answers. And if not, maybe we can get some answers from the invader. I read the article linking the attacks and disclosing that a hook was used in both. I also happened to notice that they cited an anonymous G.H. Source. I wonder who spoke up. What went on with you and victor? Hold on. Hey, kristina. You okay? Yeah, I’m good, dad. Save your concern for sasha and gladys. Our concern is for you right now. You witnessed that attack. Honey, we have every right to be concerned.

[ Sighs ] Great-uncle victor thought so, too. And he had some pretty good advice. Victor was checking up on you? He offered to hire someone to protect me from whoever went after brando. I mean, great guy, but overreact much? In this situation, your uncle victor has the situation sized up correctly. Maxie: Okay, don’t choke on your gummies. Look, take nice, even breaths… right. …And breathe away your frustration over brook lynn. Mmm. Mm-hmm. Mmm. Blq might just be bfe. Bye forever. Brook lynn is in love, lucy, and that is not worth firing her over. Look, we’ve spoken to her. Let’s give her a chance to do better. Mmm! Mmm! Okay. Okay. But, mmm, maybe — maybe we should just check with the headhunters just to see if there’s some other social media talent out there, maybe? Can we put a pin in that and just give brook lynn one more chance? Think of all the mistakes we’ve made for love. And I’d hazard a guess you’re long overdue another chance.


Did I get the time wrong for chase’s audition? Because it seems like we’re interrupting. Apparently, there’s been a mix-up. I didn’t realize that there was an audition on the books today. I knew I should have come in person to confirm and not gone through our assistants. Uh, it looks like curtis is really busy, so we should come back another time. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Let’s go. I’m sure that a successful entrepreneur such as yourself can eke out 2 minutes to, you know, hear chase cut loose.

[ Sighs ] Well, I do know from the nurses’ ball that kid’s got a set of pipes on him. I could do with a refresher, but I always got time for a star on the rise. I even saw an item on the news this morning, which means that the national outfits are sniffing around, and that’s all thanks to the invader story. Well, whoever did decide to speak to alexis’s reporter may have been responsible for bringing additional attention to the case, which is such a good thing. Yeah, i really, really doubt the party in question was looking for any kind of attention. Well, otherwise they would have gone on record. Hmm. But I’m sure this civic-minded individual’s only goal was to alert the public to a killer in their midst. The best of intentions…

[Sighs] …If only they didn’t threaten to disrupt an investigation that’s barely started. If either of you has an idea as to the identity of this civic-minded individual… please let me know. Your mother and I are going to keep you safe, not victor. I’m grateful for the concern, but, I mean, focus on molly. She had a thing with brando. She must be feeling awful. Honey, molly didn’t witness the attack.

[ Sighs ] I can hardly be called a witness. It was dark and raining, and I’m not even sure if the attacker was male or female. Brando’s killer doesn’t know that, kristina. If I had gotten a good look, jordan would have made me sit down with a sketch artist and post the likeness on social media and on the news outlets and every lamppost and telephone pole in port charles. But there’s no posted likeness, so the attacker knows that I’m not a threat. You can’t read the lunatic’s mind. Neither can your father and I, which is why we talked about it. We agree. We think it would be best if you would just come stay with one of us just for a little bit.

[ Scoffs, laughs ] Hard pass. Yeah. It won’t matter if you take a little break here. Not quitting my job, folks. No one said anything about quitting. Pcu is back in session, and phyllis is slammed with students at night. I’m not going to leave her hanging. Phyllis will understand. O-of course she will. Just tell her you’re scared. She will understand. But I’m not scared. I have so much respect for your courage. I think it’s so admirable, honey, I really do — t-this has nothing to do about courage. This is an objective evaluation of the situation. For god’s sake, do you really want to risk your life for minimum wage slinging beer in a dead-end job?! Victor, you are such a flirt.

[ Chuckles ] Guilty as charged. But I was merely referring to your wayward companion — marvin, isn’t it? Martin.Martin. Any word on a return date? Ah. No, no, not quite yet. Oh, criminal to allow such a very beautiful woman to go unchaperoned.

[ Laughs, pretends to cough ] I’m sorry. Are you feeling alright? Sorry. Sorry. I’m just trying to wrap my head around the idea of lucy and a chaperone. Hey, wait a minute. No, don’t engage. Don’t engage. It’s not worth it.

[ Sighs ] Yeah — is there someone we can talk more privately? Oh, I would absolutely love that, but [Stammers] We’re in a-a huge, very important business meeting. We are? Yes, we are. Remember? We’re discussing the marketing of the cunning concealer. Oh, we had that meeting yesterday. Oh, yes, you’re right. But then we’re talking about the testing of the bluffing blush. Right. They, uh, passed with flying colors. Oh.

[ Chuckles lightly ] Lunch? Hmm. On me.

[ Laughs ] Enjoy. Should be fun.

[ Sighs ] I thought she’d never leave.

[ Sighs ] Now, at last, I have you all to myself. I’ve kept you waiting. I’m sorry. That’s okay. I figured you were with your father. Anything relevant to charlotte? No. He keeps putting me off. He’s more concerned with kristina right now. She witnessed brando corbin’s attack.

[ Sighs ] I know. Horrible. I heard. So victor’s playing family man? Oh, he’s — he’s very devoted to family, as the cassadines define the term. We eat our young. Not you.

[ Buoy bell ringing, waves crashing ] We’re going to bring charlotte home. Thank you. When you say it, I almost want to believe it’s true. The moment I decided to have a child… from the moment she was born, she was in danger.

[ Sighs ] Just because she was my daughter… …there were forces, people, enemies who would be tempted to use her as leverage against me. I had to be careful. I just wasn’t careful enough. My own father, victor cassadine — turns out he was more lethal than anyone.

[ Sighs ] She doesn’t even know to be scared of him. I’m so frightened. Good. Good? Yeah. To be brave, sometimes we need to be frightened. And right now, we need to be brave. Why? Anna, what’s happened?


So, I engaged one of robert’s contacts to surveil the so-called school where victor is — is — is holding charlotte. Okay. Less than 24 hours after taking the assignment, the operative wanted out. Apparently, victor’s name, it — it produces a kind of chilling effect. So if robert’s people are gonna back out, then you and i may be on our own. We have lucy. Don’t you think that now’s the time for us to maybe reconsider her involvement? Why? Well, it was one thing when I thought maybe she could get us in the door, but if robert’s people are not going to take the job because they’re afraid of victor, I can’t in good conscience put a civilian’s life at risk. Then we may have to cut her loose. Before she gets in deeper. Yeah. You know, I have worn myself out trying to reach you over the last two days. Oh, is — is that so? Yes, I’ve left you messages. I’ve sent telegrams — both the written and the singing variety.

[ Laughs ]

[ Chuckles ] Oh, well, dear me, you know, I-I didn’t get any of that. I am simply gonna have to just fire my assistant. Oh, please. Let’s do that together. It’ll be a bonding experience. Oh, no. You know, I have a feeling that might be a bit of a violation of hr rules. Oh, well, then we’ll just have to rewrite the rules over our long-awaited lunch. You know, about that… uh-oh, I’m sensing bad news. Well, it’s just that sasha gilmore, um, her husband died. He was murdered.

[ Sighs ] So, you know, I-I think I would just feel very uncomfortable about having lunch with you. I mean, it would be very, very tempting, but under the circumstances, it’s not a great idea. I hope you understand. I understand nothing of the sort. That escalated quickly. Well, technically, moving a conversation from a threat to your life to your career would qualify as a de-escalation. We are not here to discuss kristina’s career. We’re here to discuss her safety — you know that, right? A subject that happens to provide mom with a segue into my life choices. Well, maybe if you had made different choices and taken a different life path, we wouldn’t be — okay, a-a path more reputable? One that’s less “dead-end-y”?

[ Sighs ]

[Stammering] I-I — limited. I meant limited.

[ Sighs ] This is a great job in the short term. Yeah, but it’s not law school. No one said anything about law school, kristina. Oh, well, here’s her chance. Go ahead, mom. Do I embarrass you? What? Well — no! Of — of course not. You just think that I should quit my job here and do something, you know, uh, more productive. Go ahead, mom. Say it. You’ll feel better. Kristina, that’s enough.

[ Stammers ] Here’s what I meant. I just — I just want you to live to your full potential. And working here at charlie’s, I’m doing anything but. If you want to know who the anonymous source is, why don’t you give alexis davis a call? So I can get a “freedom of the press” and “we protect our sources” speech from alexis? Why waste my time? And you think one of the doctors here leaked the story? Prior to that article, it wasn’t public knowledge that both brando and ava had been stabbed with a hook. I’m here to lay down the law with your co-chiefs of staff about disclosing important details. Huh. But, really, you must have bigger priorities than tracking down the source in some leak to a newspaper. Believe it or not, dr. Finn, I can juggle several priorities at once. I see. So h-h-how much damage could acknowledging that port charles might have a serial killer actually do to the investigation? We won’t know until the damage is done. Remember when the invader leaked franco’s brain tumor and alexis tried to kill him, but almost killed dante instead? I wanted to keep the perp guessing. Now this person has an edge — an edge they can exploit. Dr. Robinson, this is for you. Oh. Hey. Is it — is that — it’s the test results we ordered last night. This is brando’s cause of death. I hope you don’t mind if I stay. I’m considering renting the club for a private party. I’d love to get a sense of the acoustics and how the music plays. Yeah. That’s up to chase. Uh…

[ Stammers ] Whatever. I gotta get used to an audience at some point. Thanks. Excuse me. You hate me. What? Where’d you get that? It’s just, you’re distracted thinking about sasha, and here I am, dragging you to an audition you don’t even want. Look. Is now the perfect time to sing? No. But do I hate you? Absolutely not. Are you sure? I know there’s something that you wish you could do for sasha right now. Well, I can’t deny that. Okay. So then — then — then let’s go. We’ll forget the audition. W-we’ll go see sasha, and we’ll both feel so much better. Hey, hey. Look. Sasha’s got brando’s mom and nina hovering over her. Me foisting myself on her right now — that might be more for me trying to feel useful than of being of real use to her. Well, won’t know until you try. Later. Right now, I want to do something useful for you. For us.


Now is absolutely the right time for our lunch. Oh, well, you know, I — I don’t know if I’d be very good company. I’m so distracted, worrying about sasha. Well, fortunately, I am the master of distraction.

[ Chuckles ] I will keep your mind off these gruesome events and focused on our shared interests.

[ Chuckles ] Uh, business, yours and mine, and, uh, ways of increasing your profit potential. Well, I’m always looking for a good corporate partner.

[ Breathes deeply ] Well, I think I can do a little better than that. You give me your undivided attention, and I may surprise you with a more than satisfactory cassadine infusion… of capital, of course.

Feels like the sky is falling

shattered like a vase

I’m starting to think I’m falling into place

feels like the sky is crashing

crashing over me

I’m starting to think I’m falling into place

I’m falling into place

[ Applause ] So what do you think?

[ Sighs ] I think… there’s a savoy debut in chase’s future.

[ Laughs ] Really? Of course there is. You’ve got the voice and so much more. Kid’s got talent. And you have taste. And this private party you were talking about — place is yours for 50… thousand. Do you accept checks? Sorry. Cash is king. Anna: Hey, maxie. Hi. Hi. Uh, we’re looking for lucy. She’s not in her office.

[ Laughs ] You just missed her. Do you know where she went? Nope. They didn’t say. They? Oh, lucy and victor. They left together. Your mom and I only want what’s good for you. Does what’s good for me include my happiness? Of course it does. Does that go for you, too? What kind of thing is that to say? Okay, then the subject is closed. I don’t intend on working at charlie’s until I die, but working here right now makes me happy. And I don’t intend on dying anytime soon, by crook or by hook. She’s all you. Jordan: What do the test results say? Can we make a call on brando’s cause of death? The stab wound didn’t kill brando. The weapon was laced with a toxin — a poison.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

[ Sighs ] Been so long since I’ve been here. Too long. I mean, I’ve meant to come by many times, and, you know, something always came up and… excuses, excuses, right? Just seems so fitting. That after everything I’ve been through… that I would end up here in jacksonville. With you. I don’t even know how to respond to this. Uh, the truth would be a great start. You think I would sabotage your happiness, your upcoming wedding like that? If you still had feelings, maybe. Of course I still have feelings, curtis. They don’t just up and disappear. But you’ve moved on with your life. And you and your fiancée are sharing a new home now, so… so I’m still not hearing an answer. Yes or no. I’m scared. Kevin: I understand. It’s alright. I’m here with you. You were talking about the staircase. Is the woman still at the bottom of the stairs? Yes. I was so angry with her. I’m telling her to stay away from my father. But now she’s not moving.

[ Gasps ] Elizabeth, what is it? What do you see? Gregory: I know your thoughts are with elizabeth. She’s in really good hands with kevin. I know. I know. Look, you got your own stuff going on. Really. How is kristina doing? She’s unsettled. But she’s not hurt. And brando seems to be out of danger, so I’m grateful. Ah. But it won’t stop there, will it? Not if the same person who attacked brando was the one who attacked ava. The real question is, does the public have the right to know that there may be a lunatic out there with a hook who could very well strike again? Well, you can finally breathe a little bit. Brando got out of surgery. He’s gonna be okay, right? Yeah, he’s a strong guy. It’s probably in the genes. My dad loved brando. I mean, who wouldn’t love him? He’s just, like… amazing… yeah. …Loyal, generous. Gladys: And alive! My son is alive, and I’ve never been more relieved! I’ll bet. Ohh! I thought I lost him, sonny. I — th– thought lost my boy. You know what? Brando’s with us right now. That’s — this is where he belongs. Okay? You’ll be alright. Come on. Gladys: Ohh.

[ Alarms beeping ] Brando! Brando! Oh, my god! Please! We need help in here! Please, baby! Baby, it’s okay! Oh, my god. -Sasha, sasha, please. -What’s wrong with him?! I thought everything was okay! What’s happening?! Please! Get her out. I want to stay. Get her out of here! Sasha… we need room to work. What is happening?! Please, please! You have to save him! Portia: Let’s get him on his side. Please save him! Lorazepam going in. Easy, easy. Check his stat. Deanna: Pulse is 30 and dropping. Come on, brando.


I couldn’t wait to get away. From you. The condo. All the mistakes I made. And get to port charles and claim the life that I knew was mine. And I had it for a while. I did. I had a husband, a family… money, career. Even that social status that I was so fixated on, you know? I had the right car… I had the right clothes, and I had the right address.

[ Chuckles ] No condo for me, no. I had an estate on the lake. And then it all came crashing down like a house of cards. I mean, I’m fine. I’m not destitute or anything. But I’m here. Back in this place. It’s like a round-trip ticket to where I started. I signed the papers, sealed them in an envelope, and left them on my desk to be delivered to the judge. But they never got there. Stella: You think by now I would have learned my lesson! But there’s no fool like a old fool. What did you do, stella? I meddled in your personal business. How? Happened right here in this office. I took the envelope that contained your signed divorce papers. They were never filed. You are curtis are still married. I never saw those papers again. So let’s just sign the new ones and move forward. Yes. And that’s what I want. Okay. If you say you didn’t hold onto those papers, then, uh, I believe you. Hallelujah. But I do have another question. If there were no papers… if I did not ask for a divorce… would we still be married? So is this your dinner attire or is dinner off? Ohh. I-I meant to text you back, but it’s been crazy around here. Oh. Is everything alright? It is now. I mean, you know my friend brando corbin. Of course. Mike’s cousin. We almost lost him tonight. Ohh… but he pulled through. He pulled through.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, thank goodness! For him and his family, but also for you. Good friends are hard to come by. And so are wonderful aunts. Come here.

[ Chuckles ] On the one hand, there’s the people’s right to know. And on the other, there’s getting involved in a police investigation and everything that comes with that. And here I thought medicine was complicated. Go meet elizabeth. Yeah? Yeah. We’ve got this. Okay, I’ll — I’ll check in later. Who is this “we” you’re speaking of? Is she someone you know? I think so. But you still can’t see your face? No. It’s alright, elizabeth. You’re safe. And you’re doing great. Now look up at the top of the stairs. Is someone there, too? Yes. Yes. Someone’s there. No. “No” what? Elizabeth, who do you see? Hey, carly. Kids are fine. Listen. There’s a lot going down right now. And can you just call me as soon as you can? George: Bad news? No, no, no. Just the opposite. Really good news. Ah. At my age, you have to wonder if there’s a difference.

[ Chuckles ] -He needs another round. -His heart rate’s plummeting. Portia: We need to push atropine 0.5 milligrams. We need to set him up to be paced and prep a dopamine drip. Fight for us, brando. Remember what we mean to each other. Everything we’ve been through. The good and bad. If you’re sonny’s cousin, what are you doing working for the man who tried to kill sonny’s family? Sasha? Her pulse is racing. You gave yourself a heart attack, and you’re spending thanksgiving in the hospital. Look. This is your thanksgiving holiday, too. What are you doing spending it with me, trying to help me? Because! You’re the only one that i can help right now.

[ Sighs ] Mistletoe. Merry christmas. Brando: You know what I appreciate? What? That you just come right out and say you wanted to see me.

So breathe me in just want to say something about last night. I know. No. It shouldn’t have happened. Really? Because I was just about to say I’m glad it did. If you are pregnant with my child, I want you to tell me. Yes. The baby is yours. I feel that I have a chance at something amazing here. I want to be a part of this child’s life. And yours. Meet your son or daughter, brando corbin.

Here we are

holding on

[ Groaning ] Saa! Hey. You okay? Ohh! Brando, we have to hurry. The baby’s coming. Oh, my god! That’s our son! Can I hold him? Where’s our baby? Liam mike corbin. You were here for such a short time. But you made quite the impact. Brando: I love you, sasha gilmore. I love you with everything inside of me. I love you, too, brando.

Stay with me anyone ever tell you what a great guy you are? Let’s get married. Today!

[ Chuckles ] You are my family, brando. You’re all the family I need. With this ring, I thee wed.

[ Chuckles ] You deserve the world. I know that this wasn’t your fantasy elopement. This is my fantasy elopement. Because at the end of the day, you are my husband. And you’re my wife. For the rest of our lives.

Go on and breathe me

breathe me

[ Alarms beeping ] This makes no sense! He was trending up after surgery. It’s like his body’s been hit with something else that’s wrecking his entire system!

[ Flat line ] We’re losing him! The hell we are. Get him over on his back. Start chest compressions right now.

[ Flat line ] Okay. Come on, brando. Come on. Deanna: One, two, three, four… come on. …Six… one, two, three..


Never gonna escape it, am I? I mean, it doesn’t matter that I clawed my way to the top in port charles. In jacksonville, I’m always gonna be caroline benson from the wrong side of town. I mean, the tacky little wannabe who’s trying to pretend she belongs with the kids that go to the country club.

[ Scoffs ] I can hear you now. “Be content with what you have, caroline. It’s more than what you think.” God, as a kid, I used to resent that. I took it as though you wanted to hold me back. That you didn’t think I was good enough to want more or better. But I understand now, mom. What you meant was… “you’re wonderful just the way you are.” I’m sorry I couldn’t hear it. For your sake. And mine. Five, four, three, two, one.

[ Fingers snap ] Ohh. I’m sorry. I can’t do this. It’s alright. Are you sure you don’t want to try again? It seems like we were getting somewhere. I’m positive. Okay. We’ll pick it up again on tuesday. Look, I’m not accusing you of anything. This is legit curiosity. If things had been different… yes. As far as I’m concerned, we’d still be together. But I’m not the one who wanted to end our marriage, curtis. And that’s not an accusation or a condemnation. It’s just a fact. And despite all the things that pulled us apart… I still loved you. I loved you, too. It’s just… there were things that you couldn’t live with. Yeah. The lies. The secrets. I know what goes into being married to a cop, but it was bleeding into our personal life. Look. I guess I just… I never felt like I was on solid ground with you. And is that how you feel with portia? Like you’re on solid ground? Are you saying I’m not? -My treat. -Ooh. Big spender. Oh, yeah, that’s me. I’ll tell you what. You could spend a lot of money on me when we attend the panel at pcu. How’s that? I’m so glad you agreed to attend with me. Actually, I’m speaking on the panel. And just forgot to mention it? I’m mentioning it now. Of course you are. Always in a position of control. Look who’s talking. “Finn, go take care of elizabeth. We got this.” “We”? Who’s we? As in, we work on the paper, my paper together? You don’t value my opinion? When I ask for it. Alright. I’m asking for it. Don’t gloat. Stick to the facts. You don’t want to frighten your readers. Just inform them, appeal to their — to their reason, not their emotions. But that right there is the problem. This is emotional. Your son was this close to the boathouse where ava was attacked, and my daughter was in the alley where brando was hurt. So this is scary and it’s making people angry, so we need to channel those feelings into action. Such as? We write an open letter to whoever’s terrorizing the town. We appeal to that person’s vanity. And then what? We wait for them to write back. Hey. Hey.

[ Sighs ] Ooh. How’d it go? Learn anything new? I did. That I’m an excellent liar. Do I know you? You — you remind me of someone. Yeah. Yeah. I get that a lot. The name’s george. And you are? My friends call me sonny. You may know my old man. He used to bet on horses. Horses? Yeah. Oh, that? No. No. I just found that in the trash. No, I never actually been to a race track. So what was your old man’s name? Mike. Huh. Hey, you know what I said before about good news? Eh. Don’t mind me. I’ve overstayed my welcome. I should have checked out a long time ago. You shouldn’t say that. Life matters. Everybody’s life matters. What are you, a priest? What’s so funny?

[ Chuckles ] I’m not a priest. Oh. Want to go find sasha, join the party?

[ Gasps ] Yeah. Let’s do it. Come on.

[ Sasha exhales sharply ] We’ve wasted so much time together. No, actually

i have wasted it. Please, brando. Give me another chance. Stay with me, and I promise that we’re going to have a beautiful life together, making only happy memories. Please. Brando?


You’re never gonna believewho I ran into. Reese’s mom, mrs. Roberts. Of course, she goes by “mrs. Wade honeycutt” now. I didn’t even recognize her. You know? I mean… I mean, she has a different name and she’s older, but there was something familiar about her. God, I remember how I used to talk about her. Her car. And how great of a tennis player she was and the amazing parties she used to have. I pray that I never said the words “she’s better than you.” But that was the message. And I was so wrong. Oh, god. [ Chuckles ] Oh, my god. I was so wrong about so many things, mom. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry that I didn’t see how amazing you were.

[ Click ] Man: You want to tell me what you’re doing here? What the — I’m visiting my mom! Can you get that light out of my face, please? Who are you? What are you doing here? The night watchman hired by the developers. What developers? You’re not from around here, are you? The land has been repurposed. The city declared eminent domain. What are you talking about? You can’t just shut down a cemetery. It’s already happened. The graves in the north section have already been moved. They’ll move this section soon. Why? To put in a parkway for better access to the beach. That’s ridicul– I mean, can’t they just go around the cemetery to get to the beach? I guess not. That’s crazy… okay. Is the jacksonville beautification guild involved in this in any way? They got the ball rolling, yeah. Well, what’s gonna happen to my mom? You’ll need to move her. I’m not trying to cause trouble for you and portia. I’m just saying, can you ever truly know a person? To their absolute core?

[ Sighs ] Maybe not. But you can sure get damn close. Curtis. Believe it or not, I’m rooting for you. I really hope you get everything you want.

[ Scoffs ] And I hope the same for you. You want to elaborate on this lying thing? Kevin helped me reconnect with my memory. Of the staircase. Not only the one when I was a teenager, but a more recent one. Peter. As soon as my mind went there, I just — I shut it down because obviously it’s not like I can tell kevin about that. It’s kind of my fault. What? No. I pushed peter down the stairs, not you. Right? And if that’s preventing you from getting the help you need — no, no, no, no, finn. Y-you’re missing the point. I think the incident with peter triggered my memory from when I was younger. Right, so you think you witnessed this woman being pushed down the stairs, and what happened to peter has brought it all to the surface. Don’t you? My dad and brando understood each other. Despite the age difference. I mean — or because of the age difference. I mean, you know, that’s life. The longer you live, the… the more lives you touch, you know? Welcome back, george. What — what’d you say your cousin’s name was? Brando. Well, don’t ask me how I know, but you’re needed. No. No. I’m so sorry. No. No. They don’t get to take both liam and brando. They just don’t! We did everything that we possibly could. No, no. He was fine. He was fine. He was laughing and talking. Brando wouldn’t leave me. -What? Sasha. -No, he wouldn’T. He didn’T. W-what’s going on? I am — I’m so sorry, mrs. Corbin. But there were complications. -Mnh. -And your son didn’t make it. What?!

[ Sobbing ] I was telling sasha that we did everything that we possibly could. No! No! No!

[ Sobbing ] Gladys: My brando! Sasha…

[ Sobbing ] Oh, brando!


[ Sobbing ] Nina: Sonny. Brando? I’m so sorry.

[ Gladys sobbing ] I don’t understand. His eyes were open. He regained consciousness. How did this happen? There were, um, unforeseen complications. And we might never know what really happened. I can’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it. Oh, me neither. I know how much brando meant to you. And I wish there was something I could say or do… to help you. Give me a second. Portia. I want to see him. You’re actually going to invite a killer to write a letter to the editor? It worked for jack the ripper. Except they never caught jack the ripper. It’s the longest cold case in history. Well, think about it. His ego wouldn’t allow him to remain silent. He was proud of his craft, boasted about the killings. He taunted the police to the point where he practically dared them to catch him. And you think you can succeed where scotland yard couldn’T.

[ Sighs ] It’s different. It’s a different time now. Law enforcement has a lot more tools at their disposal. They’ve got dna. They’ve got digital footprints. That sort of thing. You’ll either win a pulitzer or…get indicted. I honestly don’t know which. But you’re intrigued. I’m intrigued. Tj: Everything okay? Yeah, we were just catching up. Yeah, we were consulting. Uh, which is it? Catching up or consulting? A little bit of both. I was just picking curtis’ brain, drawing up on those rusty pi skills of his. Rusty? Your mom is determined to find who tried to kill brando. And I will. Even the darkest secret can’t stay secret forever. Tj. Tj. I’ve been looking for you. What’s up? There’s something that you need to know. I’m so sorry about your cousin. Thank you. I know it — it’s cold comfort, but it doesn’t make it any less true — brando’s at peace now. I’m just — just worried about the rest of us, you know? We’ll give you some time with him. Thank you. You left us way too son, buddy. You, liam, mike. Y-you take care of each other up there. And I’m gonna take care of sasha and your mother. And everybody else. I promise you that.


 

I should call molly. I should, um — I should let her know what happened. Do you want me to? Nephew, we can take that right off your plate, man. No. She should — she should hear it from me. It just doesn’t make any sense. What doesn’t? The surgery was successful. The damage to his lung was repaired and all the bone fragments removed. And t-the symptoms that portia described weren’t even consistent with sepsis. What do you think went wrong? I don’t know. I could see the woman at the bottom of the stairs. I just couldn’t see who pushed her. There’s no pressure, okay? It’s — it’s like a hike or climbing a mountain, you know? You don’t race to the top. You take it one step at a time. What did you just say? You know. Mountain climbing. You put one foot in front of the other and all that. That’s how you — that’s how you reach the summit. What just happened up there? Um, I’m so sorry to interrupt, but I need a consult, please. Okay. Just wait one minute. I-it’s very important. It’s okay. We can finish this later. There’s something I have to take care of anyway. Yeah? Yeah. Oh. Okay. I’m sorry. This is insane. So my mom gets dug up like she’s some kind of potted plant? Most of the families have already made arrangements. Why wasn’t I notified? Virginia benson. Yes. Hold on. The records on file had the name jason morgan.

[ Groans ] They reached out but never heard back. Well, jason’s no longer with us. But I’m here. And these people aren’t gonna get away with this. I’ll be sure to bring it up at the next guild meeting. What on earth?! If you think for one second my mother is leaving her resting place, you have lost your mind.

[ Knocking ] Elizabeth. I remembered something. -What’s going on? -It’s about brando corbin. Yeah. How’s he doing? We lost him. What? And I’m hoping that you can tell me why. You can go in now. I don’t know if I can. No one’s — no one’s making you. Either — either of you. If you want to take your time before you go in — or if you don’t — if you decide you don’t want to go in, you don’t have to. That’s fine. I’m ready. Okay. Will you — will you come with me?

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

If Jordan would have told you the truth and been honest with you about everything, would you two still be together right now? But she didn’T. So what does it matter? I think it does. Portia. No, curtis, humor me here, please. Now, I know you might think this is silly, but whatever, I — look, I need to know this. Jordan and I may still be legally married on paper, but we haven’t lived our lives together for over a year now. That’s not what I’m worried about. Then what are you worried about? Trina: It was the best of summers. It was the worst of summers. I can’t believe it’s already over. It’s probably gonna start snowing next week. Joss? Hmm? Thinking about brando? Brando, ava, and whoever attacked them both. Hello, professor. Alexis. Good to see you. By any chance, are we here for the same person? I’m here to see my friend who is an infectious disease specialist. You? Coincidentally, I’m here to grab lunch with the same infectious disease specialist, and I’m early. Care to wait with me? Well, I actually have a — I — sure. I — I saw the news this morning about the attack on brando corbin. I gather he’s a relation. And what made you jump to that conclusion? Like any good journalist, I pay attention to details. Am I correct? No. He’s kristina’s cousin. I was sorry to hear about what happened to him. Um, I know all too well how it feels when tragedy strikes close to home. Well, this was a lot closer than you think. Nervous? I have no idea what to expect when I go in there. You’re gonna do great. Hey, look, I’m meeting my dad for a little bit of lunch, but before I do, I’ll check in, okay? Thanks. Can’t wait.

[ Chuckles ] Hey. You got this.

[ Sighs ] Man: Come in.

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Softly ] Brando! Oh, my god! You came back to me.

[ Laughs ] Hi. You and I both know the same person who attacked ava attacked brando. Sonny, you know I can’t discuss the investigation with you. Okay. Yo– you’re the one who told me that most of the victims are connected to me. Can’t you just give me anything? Anything you’ve found out? You have the resources to protect yourself and your family. Use them. You don’t need any help from me. Okay, we worked together in the past, didn’t we? And I made it clear when I came back to port charles that those days were over. Even if sharing information is the only way to stop a madman?


[ Monitor beeping ] How are you feeling? Tired. My throat hurts, but I don’t care.

[ Chuckles ] That’s the morphine. I thought it was from seeing you.

[ Laughs ] That is also the morphine.

[ Chuckles ] At least you’re awake. I love you so much. I love you.

[ Coughing ] I’m gonna go see what’s taking dr. Robertson, okay? Okay. Okay. I’ll be here. Right here. Oh, hey! Brando’s awake. [ Giggles ] Oh, my god!

[ Laughing happily ] Fantastic! Have you seen gladys? Uh, yeah. She was feeling a little lightheaded, so I walked her to the cafeteria. Okay. I’ll text her in a minute. I need to find dr. Robinson. No, no, no, no. You stay with your husband, okay? I will find dr. Robinson. Thank you. I feel like our prayers were actually answered. Yeah. Okay. If I bring you in on this and we catch this person, all a good defense attorney needs is one technicality to get a murderer back on the street. At least we know who they are. My people are working on it. I’m sure you have people on it, too. In the meantime, let’s just hope that brando wakes up soon and can tell us something. Nina: Hey, I have great news. Actually, brando’s awake. Is he talking? Uh, well, sasha didn’t mention that. I was actually looking for dr. Robinson. Okay, keep looking. I’m gonna go talk to brando right now. Hi! [ Chuckles ] I feel kind of silly. I asked for this appointment, and now I don’t know where to start. There’s no right or wrong way to do this. Take your time. My problem went deeper than I was admitting. And ever since I checked myself out of shadybrook, it’s only gotten worse. Josslyn: Thanks. Oh! Looks like your dumpster-diving partner is here. Isn’t he the reason you were in that alley where brando got attacked? You followed him out of charlie’s, right? Yeah, except I didn’t see him there. Finn is on his way to examine brando right now. And I suppose you want to go check in on him, as well. I got a few minutes before finn is done — long enough for you to answer my question. Is there any world where you and jordan would have still been together? Honey, you know, like I do, what it’s like being married to a cop. That you’ll have to accept that there are some things that you’ll never know. Right? Which is what I did. But [Sighs] What jordan kept from me, it wasn’t just some casual details about a case. The secrets she kept from me were personal. Right, no, I see that. If she would have just shared them with me, then it could have strengthened our foundation and brought us closer together. So you’re saying that if jordan would have been honest, you two wouldn’t have separated. Dr. Finn, nina went to get dr. Robinson. She found her. Dr. Robinson requested a consult. How you feeling, brando? Peaches, doc. Listen, I want you to take it easy, all right? You’re still at risk for sepsis and other post-op infections.

[ Knock at door ] Dr. Finn, may I have a word with mr. Corbin? As soon as I’m done with my consult. I’m afraid time is of the essence. The sooner we get his statement, the sooner we can get whoever did this off the street.

[ Coughing ] Commissioner, when I’m done here, he’s — he’s all yours. Thank you, doctor. Finn: You, uh, experiencing chest pain or shortness of breath? Nope.


Curtis: Nobody’s perfect. Babe [Sighs] We all have things that we don’t tell each other. If it’s an embarrassing situation from our past or a big mistake that we’re not proud of. True enough. But all of those things have no bearing on who we are now or where our lives are now. We — we — we — maybe we forget them, and we leave them buried. But what about the secrets that do have a bearing on our relationship and influence who we are to each other? Those have to be shared. Because every good relationship, the basis of it is honesty. And without that, we have nothing. You’re right. You have to tell the truth. You have to, no matter how hard it may be. I-it is how I feel, you know? In reality, jordan did lie to me, okay? Her secrets did break us up. All I can tell you is the truth of now. Do I regret the way things went down between jordan of me? Of course I do. But if you’re asking me if I want to be with her, the answer is no. I love you. I love our life together, and I cannot wait to marry you. Oh, honey, it’s the same here. Same here. Good. Now, can we stop with all the “what ifs”? That sounds good. Yes, I, um… now I — I have to go check on brando. Right. Uh… just [Chuckles] To be sure. We’re good, right? We’re good. Because if you need to hear it again, jordan and I are over. Does jordan know that? Alexis: I’m not going to lie. When I found out how close kristina was to that attack, my heart stopped. Mm. There’s nothing more terrifying for a parent than realizing you can’t protect your kids every moment. So, uh, how’s brando doing? Have you heard any word? Uh, kristina texted and said that he’s out of surgery. Well, that’s good news, right? Speaking of news, um, I was impressed with

the invader’s coverage of the attack. Do go on. Well, people have a morbid fascination about these crimes, and I commend you for resisting the urge to sensationalize it to sell more papers. Well, that w-wasn’t a difficult decision to make. I mean, these families of the victims have been through enough. It’s certainly not going to help if I turn their stories into sideshows. I couldn’t agree more. In fact, I have a proposition for you. I wanted so badly to believe that my problem was over. I checked myself out. But the behavior didn’t stop. You’ve had more incidents? At the quartermaine picnic, I blacked out. One minute I was alone, and the next… nicholas was asking me if I was all right. I mean, it was only, like 10 or 15 minutes.

[ Scoffs ] Only. But I can’t account for that time in between. I could have been doing anything.

[ Cellphone rings ] I’m sorry. I have to take this. Okay, now that it’s just us… I get why you don’t want the general public to have this information. But I’m not the general public. Now, you certainly are not. I need you to protect my family, just like you need me to figure out who did this. And why is that? Because we’re not just talking about a psycho. This person attacked the mother of my child and my cousin brando.

[ Whispering ] I’m not going to be left in the dark on this. I’m sorry. Because you were at the scene of the crime, you already know too much. And, sonny, I’m asking you not to tell anybody that ava and brando were attacked with a hook. I won’t tell anybody in the general public, but that’s it. Sorry to interrupt. Uh, brando’s all yours. Thank you, doctor. Brando, I’m glad to see you’re doing better. Mm. Are you up for a few questions? Fire away. I forgot to text gladys. She’s going to be so happy. I-I’ll see if I can track her down, okay? Okay, brando, let’s just cut right to the chase. Do you know who did this to you?


Is a big eventwith a lot of people, but right before you blacked out, you were alone. Why? Finn and I had just had an argument. What about? I felt like he wasn’t respecting my boundaries. Were the other blackouts also precipitated by an argument? Yes. Have you blacked out every time you’ve had an argument with finn? No. But a couple of times I’ve had this memory. I’m not entirely sure what it’s about. All I know is… it has something to do with my father. Alexis: What kind of proposition? Pcu is sponsoring a panel about the history of ethics in journalism. How niche. Yes, well, since you’re currently running a newspaper, I thought you might imagine yourself to be a part of that niche and accompany me. Jordan: Just tell me the first thing you remember.

[ Coughs ] Um… I — I walked into the alley. And, uh, s-someone else was there, their back was to me, and the sky opened up. Y-you know, when that happens, it’s a total downpour. I could barely see. And then that person turned around, and I saw the hook. The next thing I knew — I’m sorry. I know this is difficult for you, but I have to ask — did you see their face?

[ Coughing ] No. It was raining and [ Sighs ] They had their hood pulled down on their face. Even so, could you tell if it was a man or a woman? No. What color was the hoodie? Black. Could you tell how tall they were? It’s hard to say. I saw them turn, saw the hook — it was in my chest before I could react. Commissioner, if you’re done, I would like to examine my patient, please. Of course. Brando. Hmm? If there’s anything else you can think of, let me know. There was a noise. A noise? Like a jingling sound. Can you be a little more specific? Sounded like a — sasha wears these — these bracelets that clink against each other. Sounded like that. So you think this person may have been wearing jewelry? Yeah, sounded like that, anyway. You think this will help you find whoever did this?

[ Dog tags jingling ] Forget something? Probably. Could you be more specific? You left these at charlie’S. I was wondering what happened to them. Thanks for getting them back to me. Well, I — I actually tried to get them back to you yesterday. I followed you out the back exit into the alley. But, you know, I didn’t see you anywhere. And it’s a good thing that I didn’t double back, you know? I barely missed watching, uh, brando get stabbed, so… I heard about that. I’m sorry. Well, I wanted to let you know that the police are looking for you, you know, to find out if you saw anything. Uh, thanks for the heads up. Dante already questioned me. It’s kind of scary, a near miss like that. Yeah, it is. So, did you? Did I what? Did you see anything? Uh, no. No, unfortunately not. But if I had, I would have intervened. It’s just so weird, isn’t it? I mean, we were both right there in the alley, and neither one of us saw anything. You know what they say, timing is everything. Yeah. I just — I feel so helpless and so surrounded. Surrounded? Two stabbings, both people I know. Both times I was so close to the scene, yet I couldn’t do anything to stop it. You saved ava’s life.

You saved ava’s life. Only because you were there. I couldn’t have done it without you. Yeah. Yeah. You couldn’t have done it without me.

[ Chuckles ] What is it? Um… nothing. Nothing. I thought — you know, I — I should go. I have to talk to trina. Okay. Thanks again. Yeah. Hey. You okay? I feel really paranoid. Like there’s someone watching me. I mean, you’ve had a couple of totally traumatizing very near misses. No wonder you’re freaked out. Right. Um… don’t look now. Don’t look at what? The man behind me — is he staring at us? You can look now. The good news — you’re not being paranoid, the bad news — that guy is definitely staring at us.


Any news? Dr. Robinson just went in.

[ Sighs ] That’s good.

[ Exhales deeply ] How you doing? I’m fine. Updating gladys has given me something to focus on. Great. So how you doing, honestly? I’m better than I was last night. You know, I’ve been so upset about the guardianship. First, at brando for wanting to do it at all and then accepting that it was necessary to get me the help that I needed. But then this happened, and… all I could think about was… what would I do without him? I am barely surviving losing our baby. How would I survive losing my husband too? Hey, hey. Do you know what I see right now? A train wreck? No, no. I see someone who’s shaken but deep inside of you, you’re solid. Last night, I was falling apart. But now, now brando is awake and all that matters is him getting better. I’m not going to give him any more reasons to worry about me. I know you’re going to do whatever your husband needs, right? But no one expects you to carry all of this on your own. So if you need a shoulder to cry on, I’m here. Thank you. Kevin: Tell me about the memory. It comes in fragments. I’m young, maybe a teenager. Like you were when you were estranged from your family? Yes. What happens in the memory? There’s this woman. I reach out and — woman: Elizabeth, what are you doing? Young elizabeth: Stay away from my father. Stay out of it. Your father wouldn’t want you involved. Don’t talk about my father. See what happens if you do. Do you know who this woman is? No. I don’t remember her face or anything about her, really. All I know is that I’m confronting her over my father.

[ Sighs ] Kevin, I don’t know where this memory came from or what it’s all about, but obviously it’s something that I buried for a really long time. And if grabbing and threatening this woman are the parts my mind is ready to show me, then how bad is the stuff I can’t remember? And why is this memory coming back to me now? You. Hey. Why are you staring at us? I’m not. Uh, yes. Yes you were. And you have 30 seconds to explain yourself before things escalate. What’s your problem? You! Was I not clear? Dex: Hey, I got this. No, no, no. I got this. If I wanted your help, I’d ask for it. You heard it, pal. This is none of your business. You just made this my business, pal. Trina: Okay. Speaking of businesses… your mother doesn’t own this one, okay? And you’re making a major scene. You really want to give nina a reason to throw you out? Fine. But I still want you gone. I’ll take it from here.

[ Scoffs ] What happened? You were supposed to be guarding her discreetly. I was. I don’t know how she caught me. She’s got good instincts. Well, you should head out, okay? I’ll keep watch. But you were up all night keeping an eye on her. It’s fine, okay? You’ve been made, and I’m already here. I’ll call sonny. Just go.

[ Scoffs ] He won’t be bothering you anymore. Great. What did you say to him? Curtis, wait. I’m glad I ran into you. There’s something I need to tell you.


Well, I concur with dr. Finn. You’re still at risk for infection, and we’re keeping an eye out for sepsis. But the fact that you pulled through surgery and regained consciousness so quickly, it’s a good sign. You see that? I’ll be home in no time.

[ Chuckles ] Just when I thought I was going to have some peace and quiet. With my mother around? Ah, I’d tune her out.

[ Chuckles ] Not possible.

[ Laughs ] I know. But wouldn’t it be great if it were? And you’re in good spirits, too. That’s even better. Now, I happened to notice that your blood pressure is a little bit elevated, so I’ve ordered something to bring that back down. And a nurse will be in shortly to give it to you. Goodie.

[ Chuckles ] Hey, dr. Robinson, can they have another visitor? You up for another guest? The more the merrier. Well, let’s not get carried away.

[ Chuckles ] Take it easy on him, okay? Yeah, you got it, doc. I was worried about you. Don’t do that again. If you’re willing, we could use hypnosis to try to retrieve the memory in its entirety. If we are able to unlock this memory, will I be able to remember what I was doing when I blacked out at the quartermaines’? It’s possible. But frankly, I’m more interested in the original memory because that seems to be the cause. Of your unexplained behavior. And the sooner we can uncover that, then the sooner you can begin to process it and heal. Right. Well… that is why I’m here, so… we don’t have to do this today. Yes. Yes, we do. I need to know. It’s the only way I’m going to get my life back. Busy or you’re just not interested? I’m fine. Happy to go with you. Excellent. I look forward to the debates we’ll have about it. Hey. Hi. Oh, how’s kristina? Hanging in there. Thank you. Good. Hey, look, I’m sorry I’m late. I got called into a consult for brando. How is he? He’s awake. Alert. He’s in stable condition. Kristina will be happy to hear that. Yeah, uh, commissioner ashford stopped by to ask him some questions. It’s a good sign if he’s able to answer some questions. If brando’s doing so well, what’s wrong? What? Oh, no, it just — it seems that both ava and brando were attacked with a hook. I’m sorry. What did you say? I just reminded him that sexual harassment is a crime, one that he didn’t want to find out the penalty. Well, thanks for having our backs. Joss had it handled. You know me, can’t help but get involved. Yeah, well… it ‘s nice to know thatthere’s still decent people in the world. You’re welcome. Did you see who did this? Like I told commissioner ashford, it happened so fast I could barely register. Wrong place, wrong time. What were you doing out there? I went looking for dex. I know you trust him. I respect your judgment. Yeah, well, I trust you and respect your judgment. Why were you following him? Eh, we were all at charlie’s and I saw dex talking with josslyn. He left out the back, and then not two minutes later, josslyn went after. I don’t know. Something was nagging at me to make sure she was okay. I appreciate you looking after joss. You accepted me into your family as soon as I came to port charles. You definitely are family. You didn’t have to bring me in the way that you did. It meant the world to me. I’ll always be there for our family and for you. I hope you know that’s — that’s a two way street. I do. Besides, I still owe you for bringing gladys back into your life.

[ Laughs ] It’s a lifetime debt. I hope you’re good for it.

[ Laughter ] I’m sure I am.

[ Coughing ] I’m listening. I don’t like the way we left things before. And I wanted to say I’m sorry. I accept. I already said that. Right. Look, I know you’re upset with me for misplacing the divorce papers, but [Scoffs] I don’t know what else I can say. What is there to say? We should just move on. What, the three of us? Portia’s mad at me, too. Portia has been busy all night. And between trina’s party and learning that you and i are still legally married, it’s been a crazy few days. There’s no hard feelings. I hope not. Because it means a lot that you and I can still be friendly, even though we broke up. And I really hope that we can remain in each other’s lives. If that’s the case, then, uh, can we clear the air? About? Just tell me the truth. Was it really an accident or did you hang on to those papers on purpose?


You’re standing in front of a door. I see it. When you step through that door, you’ll be in the stairwell. And you’ll remember what happened there. Now, that may come back a little bit at first, and then more, and then a little more. Or it may all come back at once. Are you ready? I’m ready. Okay. I want you to reach out. Open the door. Now step through. What do you see? It’s just like before. I’m on the stairs with the woman. I’ve grabbed her. We’re arguing. Young elizabeth: Don’t talk about my father. All right. What then? I don’t know. That’s okay. Just relax. We were talking about the stairwell. Feel yourself there. Feel the floor beneath your feet. I can feel it. Now, how do you feel emotionally? I f-feel… wait. The woman is at the bottom of the stairs now. Her arms and legs are sprawled out around her. She still unconscious. I think she’s hurt. Where are you? I’m standing right over her. Finn: Kristina didn’t tell you? Not that part, no. Police did tell her to keep some details to herself. So I guess that hook thing was one of those details. How’d you find out, son? I think I heard the commissioner talking about it, but I just — I figured kristina would have told you. Well, that’s a reasonable assumption to make. So what the police are keeping from the public is that the same weapon was used to attack both ava jerome and brando corbin? The same type of weapon doesn’t prove that it was the same assailant. Well, that’s a good argument to establish reasonable doubt. But what’s the most logical conclusion based strictly on what you now know? The most logical conclusion is that the same person was behind the attacks. And until they’re caught — it could very well escalate. This person will most likely do it again. Boss. We got a problem. What happened? Joss spotted norman. Oh, damn it. That’s because, uh, she, you know, josslyn’s just like a mother, suspicious. D-does she know that norm was working for me? No, I made sure.

Good. You got eyes on her now? I do. I’ll keep watch till she and trina leave. And you can have someone else pick up surveillance. Good job, dex. Thanks, boss. Any update on brando? Yeah, yeah. He — he woke up. Can you believe that? That’s great, sir.

All right, listen. I’m gonna — I’m going to get back to you when I — when I, uh, get out of the hospital. Keep an eye on things. You can count on me. Jordan: I’m sorry. Are you asking if I lost the divorce papers on purpose? I know you, jordan. You’re not a careless person. In fact, you’re very much the opposite. So even if you were going to a clinic out of town, you would have made sure every I was dotted and every t was crossed. Even if the carbon monoxide in that basement hadn’t scrambled my brain a little, why would I avoid filing the papers? Did you think I would change my mind about the divorce and try to hang on to our marriage? Hey, what was that call all about? I’m just trying to keep my family safe. And I’m, you know, I’m grateful that brando’s okay. But there’s somebody —

[Whispering] Somebody is out there trying to go after everybody that’s close to me. So I’m — listen, I’m going to have to beef up security. Yeah, of course you would. That includes you. I don’t want to scare you. Oh, you’re not. I don’t want, you know, I don’t want you to have second thoughts about my business and things like that. Sonny. I know what I am getting myself into. Brando, I know that you’re supposed to be taking care of me now. But I can handle my treatment while you’re recovering. You shouldn’t have to do this alone. Got it all figured out.

[ Laughs ] I’m not going to let you down, I promise. You never could. It’s me and you versus the world, babe. We’re a team. And I want to be the one looking out for you… …helping you get better, getting you back on your feet, standing with you. I promise you, I’m going to heal as fast as humanly possible and get back to giving you the amazing life that you deserve. I’m so lucky to have you. We’re lucky to have each other. So I’ve been thinking. Uh-oh.

[ Chuckles ] For our first wedding anniversary, and I know that we’re only halfway there, but I want us to take a long vacation somewhere beautiful. Anywhere with you is beautiful. Isolated. Mm. This — that would be a nice change.

[ Laughs ] Where we could just celebrate each other all day and all night. I like where your head’s at. March 10th can’t get here fast enough.

[ Coughing ]

[ Groans ] I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to ruin the nice moment.

[ Coughing continues ] Brando, what’s wrong?

[ Alarm blaring ] Brando!

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

[ Sighs ]Last day of pool season. Wasn’t it worth taking the morning off? We’ll see. This pool owes me at least one uneventful day.

[ Scoffs ] Hey, I think the pool did right by you. It gave you more than a tan this summer. So, will we be seeing cowboy cody ambling in this morning? Wasn’t I promised mimosas? Your wish is my command. You need only bask.

[ Laughing ] I see what you do there. Yeah. You see? Yeah, you did. Oh. [ Chuckles ]

[ Scoffs ] Prosecco, not champagne. Do you even have to ask? Selena: I pegged you as more bitter than sweet. Hey. Howdy. How was the first night in the new pad? Uh…cut short. My cousin brando was attacked last night. Oh, man. Brando… that’s, um, married to the model, right?

[ Horse neighing ] Yeah. I’m sorry about that. Uh, is he — is he gonna be okay? I don’t know. He’s in surgery. Well, I’m sorry to hear that. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help. Can you tell me where you were last night? Curtis. What brings you here? Breakfast for portia. She’s been at it all night. That’s very kind of you. Yeah. I’m guessing you’re here because of brando. That’s terrible news. Yes, it is. I’ve gotta catch this person before they strike again.

[ Elevator bell dings ] City’s already on edge. Yeah. Good luck with that. You, too. Luck? Do I need it? You tell me. Gladys: What is taking so long? Why haven’t they told us anything about brando yet? These things take time. You gotta — we’re gonna have to just stay positive. Well, I– I’d rather stay informed. I mean, can’t you do something? You’re a big-shot donor here. He’s your family.

[ Sighs ] Okay, listen, I’m going to go — I’m going to check, okay? See what I can find out.

[ Whispers ] I can’t believe we’re here again. What’s that, sweetheart? I can’t believe we’re here again. Dex: Boss. You stay out of sight like I told you to? Joss never saw me. The dorm was pretty secure, but I kept watch on her room all night. I’ll be damned if I’m gonna let that maniac hurt anybody I care about again.

[ Elevator bell dings ] Hi. Any word on brando? Uh… I was just going to ask the nurse. You — how are you? I’m not great. I mean, I’m worried about sasha. I’m praying for brando. I’m not great. I’m okay, though. And I want you to stay that way. You understand me? Kristina: Hey. I thought you could use this, gladys. Any news? Not yet. Thank you, kristina.

[ Footsteps approaching ]


Bye, basking. No need to stop on my account. Then let’s just get this over with. You don’t want me hanging out with brad. On the contrary, dr. Westbourne, I’ve come to realize that your association with my nephew has its advantages. Because I helped convince him to work for you? Not my finest hour. But look how bradley’s thriving. You’ve proved to be a good friend to him. One who caved under pressure. Because I mentioned lisbon in 2016? You were free to ignore my wishes and risk exposure of the incident in question. The fact that you chose the more prudent choice makes me more supportive of your friendship with my nephew. Miss wu, being your errand boy is only a temporary position for brad. You may have your hooks in him now, but I assure you, he’s his own man. Aunt selena, I — I wasn’t expecting you. Can I get you a mimosa? Hey, oh, have mine. All right, listen, I’m sorry about what happened to your cousin, but I didn’t have anything to do with that. You know that, right? Of course I know you didn’t have anything to do with it. Cody, I’m trying to see if you got an alibi. Probably not. You know, unless they can take statements from the horses. I made sure they were ready for bed, I did my walk through, and I went up to my room. No one can verify that. Nope. I don’t have an alibi for an attack on a total stranger that I’ve never even met. So what now? The chief of detectives going to interrogate me in person this time? Leo: Did you bring the lumps of sugar? Oh, I’ve got them. Maybe I should have worn different shoes for this. Like cowboy boots? Never! Except if they had fringes or maybe some studs. I bet chase would like that. You know, smarty pants, you’re right. I already feel lucky. I’d feel even luckier if we got those divorce papers resigned and filed. I, um, couldn’t help but notice some tension between you and sonny at trina’s party the other night. Everything okay? It’s nothing. I didn’t look like nothing.

[ Inhales deeply ] Uh, are you asking as the commissioner or as my wife?

[ Scoffs ] Neither. I’m asking as your friend. Sonny and I, we’re good. We just had a difference of opinion about favors. Why the interest? Just a renewed curiosity in the state of sonny corinthos’ relationships, friends and enemies. You may not be the only person sonny’s gotten on the wrong side of lately. Both ava and brando have close ties to sonny and both were attacked. Right. It could be a coincidence, or it could be that a pattern is emerging. I can’t speak to that. Portia’s breakfast is getting cold. I need to get going. Yeah, of course. But, curtis… are we good? Jordan a few days ago, I would have said absolutely. And now? You know what? I honestly am not sure anymore. Dr. Chang just finished operating, and he — he wanted me to let you know that your husband, he made it through the surgery. Thank god.

[ Exhales deeply ] How is brando doing? The damage, I– I– it was extensive. But the doctor, he — he was able to repair it. The good news is mr. Corbin is strong, and he’s in good health. And the bad news, dr. Robinson? What’s that?


There are always concerns after a major surgery such as brando’S. But I wouldn’t categorize it as — as bad news. These are just cautions. Like what? Well, one of the common concerns after a surgery like this would be sepsis — when chemicals released in the bloodstream to fight infection actually end up triggering inflammation. But it is highly, highly unlikely. We’re keeping a very close eye on him. Can we see him? Family only, a-and just one person at a time. Thank you, dr. Robinson. You know what, um, I got something I got to take care of, so I’ll be right back. Yeah, go. Sonny: Dr. Robinson, I want to thank you for the way you handled, you know, sasha and my cousin gladys. They were terrified. You were very calm. And I appreciate that. There’s no need to thank me, mr. Corinthos. That’s part of doing my job. Yeah. Yeah, I know. But you got a good way about you, and you’re very direct. So I’m going to be very direct with you right now. I want you to tell me — what are the chances of my cousin pulling through? Dante: So, what did you do here last night? Did you call anyone? Send any emails? I watched tv. Dante, what the hell’s going on, man? I’m trying to help you establish an alibi. Okay, I already told you. I don’t think you had anything to do with these attacks. Thank you. Now tell your boss to back off. Well, he’s my boss so he’s not going to listen to me, but he’s going to run the investigation how he sees fit. By turning it around on me? Man, I don’t need this aggravation. I don’t — I don’t need to be on the chief of detectives’ radar. All right? I just want to do my own thing and keep it moving. Brook lynn: Yoo-hoo, buckaroos. Hey, what’s going on? What’s up, little man? How’s comet today? He’s great. He’s missing his buddy, though. I’ll tell you that much. He’s out back. I was about to feed him. You wanna… help me? I got sugar cubes.

[ Giggles ] Let’s get to it. Brook lynn: [ Laughs ] Yay. Have fun.

[ Horse neighs ] I hope we didn’t interrupt. Dante: Nah! Brooke lynn, I’m always happy to see you. Oh, yeah, you liar. So anyways, what is this I hear about you and a change of address? Wh– how did — [ Sighs ] Chase. Well, I also — I do live with your mom, remember? That’s true. I’m up on all things dante. Oh, good, good. That’s good to know.

[ Chuckles ] But congratulations, though, really. I think it’s great that you and sam are moving in together. Thank you. Hey, back at you. You and chase, took you long enough, huh?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. All right, I gotta go. Uh, tell cody I’ll catch him later and not to sweat it. Okay. I’ll see you. Bye. I keep my mind sharp. Oh, uh, can I get you some coffee? Something to eat? A chaise? That isn’t necessarily, bradley. I’m just passing through. Right. The high roller from houston. Since you’re a cocktail aficionado, one day brad must introduce you to the green dragon. Always a pleasure, dr. Westbourne

[ Sighs ] The green dragon. Yeah, it’s a green drink, popular in china. Herbal liqueur makes it an acquired taste. Like your aunt.

[ Exhales deeply ] Well, on the bright side, I think she’s starting to warm up to you. She doesn’t like me any more than she likes you. We’re just useful to her. How are you useful to my aunt selena? I thought we were in a good place. So did I, until I realized we were still married. So this is about the divorce papers? I apologized, curtis. You seemed to understand. I accepted your apology. I never once said I understand.

[ Scoffs ] Jordan, how come you didn’t get back to me when you learned about those papers? You didn’t — you didn’t pick up your phone and call me. You didn’t send me a message. Nothing. Instead, I had to come to you. But bo ttom line, we discoveredthe mistake before your wedding. So it’s all good, right? Is it? Have I given you any other reason to think otherwise? Actually, yes. You forget, jordan, I know you. And I know how organized you are to a fault. But yet, one of the most important documents of our lives gets lost on your watch. You know good and well what kind of time I was going through. I was very ill. Right. Right. That’s what I keep trying to tell myself. That that’s all it was. What else would it be?

[ Sighs deeply ] Answer this for me honestly, jordan. How do you feel about portia and me getting married? I want you to be happy. You know that. That’s not what I asked you. Jordan, I need you to level with me, okay? You know how important honesty is to me. Does portia know that? What’s that supposed to mean?


First you tell me. What were you and aunt selena talking about? Just business. Mm. So, life as a foot soldier for auntie dearest is working out for you? It’s like I said before, okay? Things are going surprisingly well. I’m no longer feeling aimless, and I am definitely not bored. She hasn’t asked you to do anything you’re uncomfortable with, right? You would tell me if she did. I’m adapting, so far, I don’t hate it. I mean [Chuckles] What more can I say? Do you regret working for her? I’m fine. Why? I’m just checking up on my bestie. Where’s dante? He leave? Yeah, he said to tell you, “don’t sweat it.” What exactly are you sweating, cody? Yeah, what are you sweating, cody? I made a big mistake, bud. I broke something very important to me. But I think I might have fixed it. You be careful? Mm-hmm. All right. Here. Careful. Wa– um.

[ Horse neighing ] You won this?

[ Cellphone rings ] I did when I was about your age. Yeah, I think I need to change my shoes. If you gotta take off, I got leo.

[ Ringing continues ] You good here, leo? With cody? Yeah. Okay. Yeah, buddy. Hey, you. You won this in a competition? Well, you know, someone once told me that you, uh, you earn your trophies during practice. You just pick them up at competitions. What do you mean? It’s kinda like winning or losing. It all comes down to how well you prepare ahead of time. I never forgot that. I never will. Neither will I. Just give it to me straight. Should I be preparing sasha and gladys? Mr. Corinthos, you know I can’t tell you this. I’m — I’m not asking you to give up. I’m just — I just want to be ready. I get it. Okay. I’ll give you this. These, um, type of wounds can have complications. It’s not unreasonable to be prepared. Are you a praying man? Yes, I am. Prayer helps. And I have every reason for cautious optimism. Thank you. Now,

if you’ll excuse me,I’ve been here all night, and I’m gonna grab some breakfast. You know what? You’ve helped my cousin so much. Breakfast is on me. People getting married should be on the same page. We weren’t, and it was our downfall. And that’s why this time I wanted to do something differently. Portia and I have been completely transparent with each other. If you say so. You know, that’s the second time you’ve made a comment like that. Do you think because our marriage failed, that portia and i can’t succeed? Or do you just not want us to?

[ Elevator bell dings ]


Hi, babe. Any word on who attacked brando? Nothing new yet. So, uh, where you off to? Oh, I was just gonna grab a quick bite. Quick enough? Oh, my god. Yes. Thank you so much.

[ Elevator bell dings ] Ohh. Oh. Oh, uh, sonny, I’m sorry to hear about your cousin. Appreciate that. Good to see you, jordan. Mr. Corinthos. I’m not used to seeing you this way. What way is that? Rattled. It’s been a long night. Hey. Hey. How’s brando? Yeah, well, you know, surgery went well. Good. Glad to hear that. Are sasha and mrs. Corbin around? Yeah, they’re on their way to the icu. Okay. I’d like to ask them a few questions. Now — no. That’s not a good idea. They’ve had a rough night. You’re gonna have to… make do with me. So, what’s up with cody, hmm? Are you gonna give him a second date? We’re in a holding pattern since cody is considering leaving port charles. What? Why? H-he’s got a good job, a cushy living situation in the quartermaine manse, no less, and he’s dating a bombshell. Why would he want to leave? The pcpd has been asking too many questions about him. You got to sit upright, but you still got to look relaxed. So here’s a trick. You pretend that you got a string tied to your head that’s pulling you up. But then you got to relax your butt into the saddle.

[ Chuckles ] You’re a natural, bud. Then what? Uh, well, then you take your horse to go do some tests, like different gaits, which is like how they walk, in big circles with minimal aid. The point of these competitions is to show control and mastery of the horse. Who taught you all this? Um, there was a horse trainer on the estate that I grew up on. He, uh — he taught me everything he knew about horses, which was quite a lot. He was the closest thing to a father I had. My dad isn’t my birth father, either. But he’s kind, too. Then I guess we’re both lucky, huh, leo?

[ Imitates explosion ] So, are you gonna tell me what sonny and I walked in on earlier or what? Just some housekeeping with jordan. Hm! The divorce papers, huh?

[ Inhales sharply ] Among other things. Oh, no. No, no. Curtis, you didn’T. Look. Honey! I’m not saying jordan intentionally misplaced those papers, right?

[ Sighs ] But after talking with you and tj… I’m beginning to think it’s a real possibility. Wait a second. What did tj say? He didn’t say anything about the divorce specifically, but it’s clear that jordan is throwing herself into work and neglecting her personal life. Well, maybe she’s just not ready to get out there just yet. Right. I mean, with work, she probably has no time to even sleep, much less meet up with someone new for a coffee date. Hey. You okay? Hm. I guess I’m more freaked out than I’m willing to admit. I can’t believe I saw that psycho stab brando. You saw who did it? Not clearly. The alley’s not lit, and it was pouring down rain. Also, you were probably in shock. Has that ever happened to you? First couple times I saw action. Takes a while to learn how to focus in stressful situations. Well, it’s a good thing you were there when ava was stabbed. I heard you were calm and collected. You know how they say a swan glides along the surface but is paddling furiously underneath? So you’re not as unruffled as you seem? Half of keeping your cool is faking it. I’ll keep that in mind. I’ve definitely had my fill of horrible situations. That’s too bad. I hope you never have to see anything like that again, but if you do, just keep paddling. Alright. I’ll be right here. Are you also going in? Doctor said one at a time. I-I’ll go in after sasha. No. Gladys, it’s okay. You go in first. Thanks, baby.

[ Monitor beeping ] What can I do? Tell that it’s not gonna happen again… that I won’t lose brando, too. Well, dr. Robinson said that he — he’s doing fine. A-and think about everything that brando has to live for, with you being at the top of that list. Uh, it’S… it’s like when I brought you home as a newborn. I was so afraid to hurt you. This time, you’re already hurt. Tell me who hurt you, sweetheart. Tell your ma. Open your — your big blue eyes… and tell me who put you in this bed. So I can hunt them down and give them an ounce of the hell I’m going through now.


they don’t give out trophieswhere I go to ride. Are there any competitions in port charles? That’s a good question. I’ll find out if there’s a local chapter of the stirrup society. What’s that? Well, it’s an organization for kids that teaches riding and sportsmanship and how to take care of horses. You already taught me all that stuff. Yeah, but you could learn a lot more if you took some lessons with the stirrup society. They do events like riding events and competitions. I’ll, uh, maybe take you to one. Yeah! I’m gonna go tell comet! You’re so good with him. Oh, nah, he’s — he’s good with me. Leo’s one of the only people I don’t have to pretend with. You do a lot of pretending? Well, you know, new guy in town, it’s kind of hard to try and make a good impression. It seems like you’ve succeeded. Olivia adores you. Sam and dante. Britt’s not complaining — much.

[ Both laugh ] Yeah, dante and i go way back. Not too many people give me multiple chances. Sometimes it seems easier just to start over than to try to fix something that’s broken. Yeah, I’ve been there. I’ve run away. But wherever I’ve arrived, there I was. Damn, ms. Quartermaine. You’ve got layers!

[ Laughs ] That’s an understatement. Look, cody, I don’t know what you’re facing, but everyone in this house is really glad you’re here. Hope you stick around. Then he threatened to punch mac scorpio and maxie walked in. Ooh. Wait. Wasn’t maxie on team cody? Not anymore. Look, as a town pariah, I’m experiencing a sympathy cringe here. I mean, cody’s reaction makes sense. Hearing you’re a person of interest in a brutal attack would put anyone on edge, especially when you don’t know the victim. Which was my point to maxie, but she wasn’t having it. Now she thinks cody’s not worth my time. Maxie’s cool and all, but judging from her last fiancé, she might not be the best source for romantic advice. And we are? Hey! Speak for yourself. I just exchanged numbers with the guy over at the bar earlier. The mojo is back. Okay. Who says “mojo”? Whatever! Charisma. Magnetism. Uh…swagger. Hmm? You know who else has swagger? Don’t say it. No. Mm-hmm. Face it, britt. You are drawn to that big, brash bull of a man. So why not just cast aside all doubt and take cody bell by the horns?! Okay, granted, jordan is a busy woman, but whether or not she’s dating is not an indicator if she’s over me or not. But you seem to feel like she isn’T. Well, you brought it up first. You tell me. I’m wondering why it even matters at this point. Because it would explain why I get the sense that jordan is holding something back when it comes to those papers. Okay, look, I believe that jordan, you know, she does still harbor feelings for you, but I don’t get the sense that she’s angling, trying to get you back. Then why won’t she file those divorce papers? Okay. Okay. Let’s say that she intentionally “lost” the divorce papers and she wants you back. Would that change things for you? Uh, where’s kristina? How’s she doing? She’s on the 10th floor. Why don’t you go on up and I’ll meet you there? Okay. Yeah. Sounds good. I’ll see ya. Alright? Can you tell me anything about brando that might help? Any disgruntled employees? How’s his relationship with sasha? Everybody loved brando. He didn’t have an enemy in the world. What about cyrus renault? He used to work for him at some point. Are you looking at cyrus? I’m looking at every possible scenario, including a possible link to you. Have you been having any business problems lately? I mean, you know, just the normal ones. But brando doesn’t work for me. Ava doesn’t work for me. You want to help me find this maniac? Stop stonewalling. Because right now the only connection I can find between brando and ava is you. So, I usually go to perks, but this place is right around the corner from my building, so I figured, why not? Well, after waiting in line for nearly 10 minutes to overpay for a “pour over” coffee this big, now I know why not.

[ Laughs ] I know the place that you’re talking about. Corner of 8th and van ness? That’s it. The most pretentious, ridiculous — hey. Kristina. Hey. Hey. You been here all night or what? Where else would I be? Um, brando made it through surgery. Yeah, I heard. How are you holding up? I mean, it’s been rough, but dex has been helping me get my mind off of it and I’m just trying to chill. Oh. Yeah, dex. He’s a real great guy, this guy, isn’t he? You seem to be everywhere these days, huh? -It’s what I’m paid for. -Really? Did you know he works for sonny? I did. Yeah. Wait. Was one of your jobs to protect the family? Which I do when called upon. Huh. No one in your family is at risk for me. Oh, really? Well, we both know that isn’t entirely true, right? How’s he doing? Not in any pain that I can tell. Well, that’s good. Ohh. We’re taking it all for him. I would take it all if I could. How’s she? Desperate not to lose him. Makes two of us. You go to bat for everyone around you. Me. Gladys. Sonny and his family. I know that it must be exhausting for you. I know that

i must be exhausting. But I’m gonna have to ask you to rally one more time, brando. Fight! I need you to fight for me. I know that you’re tired. And I know that you’re hurting. But I need you to push through, okay? Fight. For me. And I pr omise you that you don’thave to worry about me anymore. I will do everything that I have to to get better… for you. You’re deserve the best. Because you are the best. And I believe in you, brando. I believe in you more than I have ever believed in anyone or anything.


Why would I agree to a second date with someone who’s ready to run as soon as there’s trouble? But he hasn’t, right? Cody’s still in port charles. For the moment. But they all leave eventually. Cody might be different. Maxie thinks cody’s up to no good.

[ Chuckles ] Like that’s a deal-breaker. No disrespect to maxie or anyone else, but come on. If you like the guy, if you think you two might be good together, then take a shot. Don’t freeze him out. Bradley! Are you advising me to give him the benefit of the doubt? Yeah. Novel concept. I know.

[ Laughs ] Brad. Hmm? Thanks for saying I’m a bombshell.

[ Scoffs ] Don’t be so modest. Go get your swagger on, girl. You know you can melt dry ice.

[ Laughs ] And besides, you’re always looking out for me. Least I can do is thank you for it. I told comet we’re going to join the stirrup society! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on there, partner. I said we could go watch. There’s a big difference. Besides, you’re gonna need your parents’ permission to participate. They’ll say yes, especially after I explain why they should.

[ Chuckles ] I thought I was the only one who could play my dad like a fiddle. Well, leo, a competition takes a lot of training and practice. You sure you’re up for that? Cody will train me. Well, have you asked him? He might have stuff to do. Cody, will you train me? I already know where I’ll put my trophy, but I can’t do it without you. You won’t have to, bud. Well, this is not the conversation I expected to have this morning. Neither did I. But we’re in it now. What if jordan wants you back, curtis? Jordan and I loved each other and we fought hard to be together. And that type of love doesn’t just vanish when you move on? No, it does not. I will always care for her. We built a history together. But, baby… that’s exactly what it is. It’s history. It’s in the past. You…are my future. My beautiful, exciting new future. You once viewed a future with jordan, though, didn’t you? That was before I realized we had fundamental differences, before I learned of all the secrets she kept. Baby, this is not about how jordan feels about me. This is about how

we feel about each other. I couldn’t be with someone like jordan because I could never build a future with someone who would have a problem being truthful with me. But… what if jordan was truthful with you? What if she was honest with you about everything? Would you two still be together? Both victims are related to you in some way. True. Brando’s my cousin, and ava’s the mother of my child. But that could just be a coincidence. I don’t believe in coincidences. Do you? Look, sonny, I’m doing my best here, but you got to help me out. How? Tell me what’s going on. I’ve heard things haven’t been going right with your business. You know what? The regular up-and-down, you know? Nothing major. Sonny. Is it possible your family could be under attack? Okay. Listen to me. Do you have any evidence to suggest that? No, but why else would the person who targeted ava also attack brando? What if this is just the beginning? So, brando and i caught dex here, uh, threatening michael in the quartermaine stables. Is that true? I misinterpreted something that your father said about michael, and I decided to follow up. Hmm. I thought I was showing initiative, but I thought wrong. Initiative. Yeah, so he got upset that we intervened, and then he got upset that brando mentioned it to sonny. Mr. Corinthos and i worked that out. So did brando and I. Well, good. Well, if dad trusts dex, then that’s good enough for me. It’s j– it’s funny. Like, this guy is literally everywhere something happens. At the picnic right after ava gets stabbed. It’s a good thing. I saved her life. In the alleyway right after brando gets stabbed. Are you accusing me of something, detective? Dex, is that offer for coffee still on the table? That depends. We’ll go to perks, not the place on van ness. We good here? Yeah. Yeah, for now. Great. Let’s go. I’m sorry for pushing you away. And I’m sorry for… wasting time that… that I should have spent being with you. I’m sorry for every time I didn’t tell you how much I love you. I can’t lose you, too, brando. Please. Please come back to me.

[ Sobbing ] I can’t do this without you.

[ Gasps ] Brando? Brando?

[ Exhales sharply ] Brando. Hi.

[ Laughs ] Hi.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

 I downloaded the syllabus, and I’m already psyched. The reading list sounds super interesting. Are you sure you guys don’t want to take this class with me? “Technology and ethics”? I feel like I can practically teach that class. I’m just surprised you signed up. Well, as a victim of revenge porn, I don’t want to pretend that it didn’t happen, you know? I — if anything, I want to learn as much as humanly possible about ethics and technology. Yeah, that’s how I feel about music theory. Like, I love singing and playing guitar. I just feel like, you know, there’s so much more to learn about what goes behind making music. Yeah. Hey, have you reached out to your out-of-town… I’m glad you joined us. I know you have work later. Well, nowhere else I’d rather be. So, uh, what classes are you excited about? Um, we don’t have to talk about that. Too bad about the rain. We could have gotten here earlier. Uh, trina, do you really want to talk about the weather? Or do you think that talking about college will make me feel bad because I never went? No, I j– I — I — yes. Maybe. Would it? I want to talk about what you want to talk about. Except the weather. Okay, then. Um, how about we talk about spencer? Carly, why aren’t you calling me back? Woman: May I say how much I admire you? Uh, thank you. But I’m not sure why. Oh. [ Chuckles ] I-it’s rare to see someone reading an actual book. Usually folks are just scrolling on their phone. Well, I can’t take the credit. I lost my phone. I won’t get a new one till tomorrow, so I bought the book at the airport. Although I am enjoying the digital detox. Oh. Well, I — I apologize for interrupting your reading. It’s okay. Thank you for the compliment. I’m mrs. Wade honeycutt. Please call me peyton. Nice to meet you. I’m carly. Carly corinthos. Carly… got your message. What’s up? Is there a progress report? You told me to take it slow, make sure sonny doesn’t get suspicious. Has he? I don’t think so. He wants me to hang around the docks, make sure the wus are sticking to their agreement. Right, making sure they’re not moving drugs through port charles. That’s right. I know keeping an eye on the wus doesn’t put me in the inner circle, but it’s a step up. Yeah, a small one. I mean, come on. You saved ava’s life. What else do you have to do to earn sonny’s trust? Well, come on, sonny. Do your worst. And not that this matters to you, but I’m not the one that tried to kill ava. I know that. Uh, you believe me? I don’t believe a word that comes out of your lying mouth. But you can’t be in two places at the same time. What does that mean? There’s been another attack. Did tj say how long brando will be in surgery? A few hours, at least. It’s only been a few minutes since we brought him up to the or, and it already feels like an eternity. The G.H. Surgeons are the best. Brando is in good hands. And I’m positive he knows we’re here waiting for him. He won’t let us down.

[ Elevator bell dings ] Nina: Hey! Sonny called me and told me. So, what’s the latest on brando? He’s in surgery. And I feel like I’m falling apart. We’ll make sure that that doesn’t happen, sasha. Okay?


I can get something incriminating on sonny, but I need more time. Well, um, look, I, uh — I never had a chance to thank you for what you did. Look, I-I can’t stand ava, but her daughter avery is my little sister, so… joss gets more than half the credit. She was with ava when I got there. I’m aware. And what happened? What were you even doing there? I had some paperwork for sonny’s signature. The front drive was plugged with cars, so I took the access road to park by the boathouse. I got out of the vehicle. I just heard someone screaming for help. And josslyn said that you were the one who insisted on getting ava to the hospital. She was on the verge of bleeding out. I had to drive like hell, but… joss was good. She held it together, managed to keep pressure on the wound. Those were extreme circumstances, and you and josslyn had no choice but to work together. But that can never happen again. So, how’s your mom doing? She doesn’t tell us much. She wants me and my brothers to think that she’s okay, but I can tell that she’s not. Is she getting help? Finn’s been around a lot. It’s been good for her. Is there anything that I can do to help? You just being here helps a lot. Couldn’t imagine going through this without you. Trina: So, I never got the chance to tell you why I was at the pcpd looking for spencer. Uh, you don’t have to explain. No, I-I want to. So, I learned that spencer was trying to help me the whole time. He lied about his feelings for esme, stayed with her, hoping that he can find some proof that she framed me for joss and cam’s sex tape. Wow. So is that why spencer showed up at your party? To tell you the truth? I think. But in the end, he didn’T. So how did you find out? Ava told me. She also told me that spencer had feelings for me. I figured he might. I mean, no guy is gonna risk returning to prison to give an alibi to someone he doesn’t care about. I was trying to talk to spencer about it, but it was too late. He left for pentonville, as you know. Now that you know the truth… does this change things between you and me? Well, w-what brings you to jacksonville? Business? Pleasure? Well, I’m not supposed to be here. I was on a flight to aruba, but our plane was grounded because of thunderstorms in the area. Well, on behalf of our city, I apologize for our inconvenient weather. Well, I wasn’t very happy that my flight was canceled, but I found a great hotel, I have a good book, and I met you, so… so far, so good. Well, I hope before you hurry off to the airport tomorrow, you might have a chance to look around our city. Yeah. I think I might. It’s been quite a few years since I’ve been in jacksonville. Oh, well, then you have no idea what you’ve missed. Oh, the guild has sponsored a number of very successful projects in the last 10 years alone. The guild? I’m so sorry. It’s the jacksonville beautification guild. We just call it “the guild.” I’m a board member. That’s impressive. Well, improving city spaces benefits everyone who lives here, especially the property owners. And, oh, we are getting ready for our fall gala when we take over the ballroom and the hotel grounds. It’s our biggest fundraiser, and I don’t mind telling you, it’s an awful lot of work.

[ Laughs ] Oh, good lord. That — that’s joshua clark. He’s married to a friend of mine. That young woman is most definitely not his daughter. Someone else was stabbed? Where? W-who was it? My cousin brando. He was… attacked in an alley behind charlie’s pub. He’s in surgery now. How bad?

[ Sighs ] He’s strong. He’s gonna make it. Did they catch the guy? Not yet. What makes you think it was the same person who attacked me? There’s rumors that the cops say that the person who attacked you had a large hook, and a witness saw a similar hook used on brando. A witness? Who? Kristina. Thanks for coming. And please thank sonny for letting you know. Oh. Yeah. Of course I will. So, how are you g– how are you? I’m pretty freaked out. I mean, why would anyone want to attack brando? I have no idea. Why was he in that alley? I don’t know. He just said that he would be right back and he left. Maybe he saw something suspicious and went to check it out. Knowing brando, you’re right. He’ll always help someone in trouble. That’s who brando is. He has to help, no matter what the cost to him personally. I just hope the cost isn’t too high. Oh. Come sit, sasha. Yeah. Surgery’s gonna take a while. Tj? Tj? Why aren’t you at brando’s surgery? What’s wrong?


brando’s still in surgery. I just came to update you on his progress. Dr. Chang confirmed that the hook shattered one of brando’s ribs, and a piece of that rib punctured his left lung. That’s why my boy was struggling to breathe. Right. Now, the good news is that brando’s heart wasn’t affected, but the surgical team has to make sure they retrieve every shard of bone, and that takes time. How much time? We don’t know yet. Well, a-at least we know something. We — we were going crazy waiting for an update. Thought you might be. I’m headed back to the or. You’re all by yourself? Where’s sonny? Kristina witnessed the attack on brando? Did the attacker see her? He ran off as soon as kristina started screaming. And, uh, look– looks like she saved brando’s life. He was gonna… stab him a second time. Sorry, sonny. Ava and I will be praying for brando’s recovery. Yeah, and thanks for letting us know. I’m sure that you want to be with your daughter now. Yeah. Take care of yourself. I’ll tell avery that you love her. Nikolas. Don’t move from this spot. Don’t let anybody in unless ava says so. Copy that, boss. Do you feel better now that you know that I didn’t try to kill you? I guess so. You guess so? Do you want me to be guilty? My feelings for you haven’t changed. Despite knowing spencer was “team trina” all along? It means a lot to me that spencer believed in my innocence. But he still hurt me… still lied to me every time he defended esme. But he didn’t mean it. I didn’t know that. Spencer didn’t trust me enough to tell me the truth! And that is so typical of him. He’s always getting in his own way. I would much rather be with somebody who respects me enough to be real with me. And I’m real? Really real. Oh. Sorry. Am I interrupting? No. No, no. I was just — I was just checking some messages. Long day? I saw that yawn. Actually, I just woke up from a nap. Oh, I didn’t know a busy nurse and mother like you had the luxury of naps. Well, I asked for a reduced schedule at the hospital, and melanie agreed to stay late to keep an eye on wiley, so… nice. In that case, I’m gonna make you some tea. How about that? You have a seat. Your body is going through so much right now. I know — I know it’s got to be so hard. Who told you? Look, I hired you to infiltrate sonny’s organization because of your combat experience, your willingness to take risks, and you’re comfortable with “situational ethics.” Look, josslyn, she doesn’t know that you work for me, so every single time you have an interaction with her, it implies a lie of omission, and I hate lying to my sister, and I hate keeping secrets from her. Alright? So the less she sees of you, the better. Nina: I could go to your apartment. You know what? I’ll get you a sweater. It’s always cold in hospitals. Or something for brando when he gets out of surgery? Alright. It’s alright. You saw ava? Yeah. Uh, I filled frank in, and he’s guarding her, yeah. So you still have a 24-hour protection over her? Well, brando’s attack makes it less likely that ava’s stabbing is personal, but… you don’t want to stop her protection. Better safe than sorry. Right? How’s sasha? She’s scared. She’s worried sick. I know brando was appointed her guardian. It’s a long story. I don’t think that sasha’s in any shape to deal with his attack. I mean, who would be, dad? Sasha. If you need anything, if brando needs anything, I’m here, okay? Gladys: Dr. Ashford just gave us a progress report. Gladys: Commissioner ashford. Did you catch the monster who hurt my son? Not yet. I just came from the crime scene. Forensics is still gathering evidence. I won’t ask if you’re alright. I’m sorry, but if you’re here to ask sasha anything, now really is not a good time. I’m not here for sasha. I need to speak with kristina.

[ Exhales sharply ] Well, I-I have to speak to the manager. About what? Clearly she’s a call girl. Plying her trade at one of the best hotels in town? It’s a disgrace. Yeah, but joshua didn’t seem to have a problem with it.

[ Chuckles ] Men are weak. Trash like that can’t wait to take advantage. In what universe was that young girl “taking advantage”? And if you’re right and she’s a professional, it’s not like she was forcing joshua to do anything he wasn’t willing to pay for. My dear, solicitation and the sex trade are a blight on any city. They drive down property values. They erode civic pride. Oh, now, one of the most successful projects of the guild was when we got to re-zone chestnut street and finally were able to tear down ruby anderson’s house of ill repute. Did you say ruby anderson’s? You had her house torn down? Oh, yes. And good riddance. Well, ostensibly, it was — it was a boarding house. We all knew exactly what went on there. I think there was a real ruby once upon a time. It was decades ago. Ruby anderson was real. I should know. She was my great-aunt.


go down to the garden and get something to drink? Oh, I don’t really want to leave the pool yet. Is there any chance that you can get the drinks? Sure thing. I’d love an iced tea. Me too. Okay. Well, then, I guess I’ll be right back. Here. Sit. So…things looked pretty intense between you and rory earlier. Yeah. I told rory that secretly spencer was on my side all along. And you don’t owe me another apology. It was up to spencer to tell me how he really felt about me. Which he never did. And you’re with rory now. So how much does the truth about what spencer thought really matter? The truth always matters. But I don’t have feelings for spencer. They’re gone. So is he. I was found not guilty by a jury. And I’m getting on with my life without spencer. Wait. Told me what? That — that pregnancy can be hard? I-I really hope I didn’t overstep. No. That’s — that’s not what I meant. Oh. Okay. Sorry. What — what did you mean? I have no idea.

[ Chuckles ] Ugh! I have pregnancy brain. And not helped by still feeling half asleep. Aw. I’m sorry you’re going through such a rough time. It’s worth it. I just need to get through a few more weeks, and then my first trimester will be over. Good. You know what? Tea sounds great. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey. Are you okay? Yeah. Yeah. It’s just that the baby likes to mess with my equilibrium. Uh-huh. He or she is definitely a handful already. Alright. Okay. You have a seat. Come on. Sit down here. Let’s sit down. I’m gonna get you that tea. No, no. You really don’t have to. What? Come on! You’ve got a future quartermaine in there. You deserve to be waited on hand and foot. And there it is. She’s smilin’.

[ Chuckles ] Well, I was just thinking that wiley and this baby are so lucky to have such a great family. You are all so strong. Maybe sometimes a little too strong. But I know that, as their mother, wiley and his little brother or sister don’t have to worry about that. You’re gonna make sure they don’t get caught up in old quartermaine squabbles. It’s unbearable to think that the man I love, my husband, might be capable of attacking me. You were so angry that night. Y-you blamed me for spencer finding out that you slept with esme. You wanted to spencer to know about esme and me because you wanted to hurt me. Maybe I was just tired of all your secrets. All I wanted was a life with you, ava. To be happy. To love you. Instead, you blew it up. You were wrong and weak… and stupid. I was all those things. When esme fell off the parapet… I believed you when you told me that you didn’t push her, despite the staff hearing you guys argue. I protected you without hesitation because I love you. I have, from the moment we met. I always have and I always will. I know you made a statement to the officer on scene, but I want to hear it for myself, just in case he missed anything. Start with when you entered the alley. I arrived at charlie’s for my shift, and I cut through the alley to the back entrance. Do you usually enter through the alleyway? Sometimes. Okay. Anyone else there? Sometimes. When one of the busboys takes out the trash. And people in the neighborhood know that phyllis always gives out any remaining food at the end of the night, but it was too early for anyone to be around. Okay. Continue. There was a sudden downpour. The sky just opened up. So it was really hard to see, but… I saw movement… and this guy in a dark hoodie. He raised his arm up and… that’s when the hook caught the light. Hey, baby, you don’t have to continue if you don’t want to, okay? No. I’m okay. Are you sure? And you’re sure the attacker was a man? Well, I just assumed. Did this person see you? I don’t know. Maybe. Did you see their face? I-I don’t know. It was raining really hard. And I was so focused on the hook and seeing brando on the ground. And I-I was screaming. And then the guy just took off. Okay. You know what? Take — sweetie, take a break. Okay? Okay. Is my daughter in danger?


O believe the assailant would target kristina. We’re talking about the same guy who went after ava. Now what? He’s up to two, right? He can go after anybody. And that includes my daughter. Anything’s possible. But the attacks appear to be crimes of opportunity. I just wish that I could stop my head from spinning and thinking of everything that could go wrong. Yeah. Yeah. It’s just — it’s — it’s the waiting that’s challenging. I just wish that I could do something. Huh. [ Chuckles ] Is that cam? No, it’s avery. She’s saying good night to — and I quote — “the best sister ever.” Oh! Well, that’s quite an endorsement. She’s just happy I found her bracelet. Well, only the best big sister would go dumpster diving. But? But you shouldn’t have gone in alone. What if you had gotten stuck and couldn’t have gotten out? Um… what? You got stuck? No. I wasn’t alone. Dex was with me. Are you sure you’re the right man for the job? Of course I am. But the job is to pretend to work for sonny. So I have to play the part of a loyal minion, right? As long as you remain clear on the ultimate goal. To tear down sonny’s organization from the inside. And don’t get sucked into my father’s world. I won’T. But I got to admit. I don’t hate the guy. You know, when I first approached you, you said that you wanted to take a dangerous man off the streets. And I still do. Taking down sonny will make up for… for my mistakes. Okay? I am not going soft. I can still do the job you hired me to do. Commissioner. Detective falconeri sent me. What can I do? How can I help catch brando’s attacker? Take notes. Do you know why brando left charlie’s pub via the back entrance? No. We were eating dessert, and suddenly brando said that he would be right back. Where was he going? He didn’t say. Was anyone else in the pub tonight? Uh, your guy, sonny. Dex. He was talking to josslyn. Pcpd didn’t get statements from either one of them. I was just with ms. Jacks, and she never mentioned the attack. Uh, if memory serves, josslyn left before everything got crazy. Wait a minute. Josslyn left before brando was attacked? Your great-aunt was ruby anderson?

The ruby? The one and only. And were you employed at her “establishment”? No. I met ruby years later when she left florida and moved to port charles, new york. Port charles’ loss is jacksonville’s gain.

[ Chuckles ] Where do you get off judging ruby? Or anyone? There are such things as “standards,” and clearly you have no idea what I’m talking about, so allow me to explain. There’s a way to behave. There’s a way to conduct yourself that determines what circles you move in and who finds you acceptable. You said your last name was honeycutt. That’s right. Mrs. Wade honeycutt. He’s your second husband. How do you know that? Because your first husband’s name was daniel. And your daughter’s name was charlotte reese roberts. And you lived on bedlow drive. And you had a big, beautiful house with a swimming pool. And you drove a mercedes convertible. And I thought it was so cool. Oh, my god. You’re caroline benson?


Peyton: Caroline benson. You call yourself carly? My daughter is dead, and you’re using her name? My name is carly. I chose it, and I’ve been using it for most of my adult life. You weren’t born with it. Carly was reese’s nickname, my sweet, my trusting daughter. Worst day of her life was when she met you! Ah, she came home so excited, made a new friend, wanted you to come over. The instant I talked to your mother I knew it was a mistake. She said she was a secretary. She’d be unable to supervise the girls ’cause she had to work. You didn’t supervise very much, mrs. Roberts. You were always off at some luncheon or committee meeting. It was the housekeeper who drove us around until reese was old enough to do it herself. How many afternoons did you spend at our house? How many sleepovers? Little caroline, always so eager to fit in. Couldn’t quite manage with your discount clothes and the wrong shoes. But my reese was so happy to share.

[ Voice breaking ] Oh, my god. You wore the same size. You could almost pass as a girl from a decent family, so I let you tag along. It made reese happy, and I didn’t see the harm. I didn’t see the harm. Until it was too late. Until you betrayed my generosity. Until you seduced my husband! I’m glad you’re back with your family, drew. You’re a good influence. Oh, I don’t know about that, but… thank you. Hey. There you are. Why didn’t you respond to any of my calls?

[ Stammers ] Because I left my phone at the gatehouse. What’s wrong? Um, I just heard from kristina, and brando is in surgery at G.H. What do you want from me, nikolas? I want you to believe in me. The way that I believe in you. Our marriage, it started out in blackmail and suspicion, but it grew into something, a true union of our souls. And I thought that you understood me like no one else could because deep down we’re the same. We know each other’s heart, and we accept each other the way we are. And we’ve both made mistakes. But now the person that I thought knew me the best believes that I would stab them and I would leave them to die? I’m not the one who broke the trust between us. I thought when something broke, you fixed it. Not always. Are you saying there’s no way back? Cam made it seem like you were alone in that dumpster. Cam assumed, and I didn’t correct him. Because you were with dex. Look. I don’t understand what the look is for. Alright? Dex was doing something nice. He helped me find the bracelet. It’s no big deal. Uh, if it wasn’t a big deal, then why didn’t you tell anyone that you were with dex? Because I knew that people would do exactly what you’re doing now and make it something that it wasn’T. I’m not bothered that dex was helping you. I’m bothered that you lied about it. I didn’t lie. I just didn’t tell anyone. What’s the difference? Uh-oh. What did I miss? Do I even want to know? Rory. Did you leave your phone or something? It’s police business. Josslyn, I need to talk to you. Why? What happened? Brando corbin was attacked tonight. Sasha. Is brando out of surgery? How is he? I’m sorry, but there’s been a complication.


and the attacker fled after kristina screamed. And then sonny showed up a few seconds later. They called paramedics. And, yeah, brando’s at G.H. Poor sasha. I mean, she’s already struggling emotionally. And now this? I’m going to the hospital. I’ll come with you. I just got to call my mom first. No, no, no. You go. Go, go, go. I’ll call carly right now. Alright. Thanks, man. Okay.

[ Line ringing ] Come on, carly. Pick up, pick up, pick up, pick up. I had known your husband since I was 12 years old. I didn’t know how to say no to him. I don’t make excuses for my daniel. As I said, men are weak. And you, you were only too eager to give him what he wanted. That’s not true. He could see what you were, what you are. A greedy piece of trash. You envied reese. You wanted her life. And you thought you could get it by sleeping with her father? You ridiculous tart. I could laugh about it if — if you hadn’t have broken reese’s heart, if she hadn’t have found out. She should never have been driving the day of the accident. She was so upset. It was all — all of it was your fault! I was 16 years old. Your husband was in his forties, so by definition, it was his fault. Ah. And your family meant so much to me. I was too afraid to stop him. But I’m not caroline benson anymore wearing the wrong shoes. I’m a grown woman, and I don’t owe anything to anyone, least of all you. I advise you to get on your plane as quickly as you can, caroline. You don’t belong in jacksonville. You never did. You are not the injured party here. I’m the one betrayed, right? I’m the one in the hospital bed. It is not my fault that I don’t trust you anymore. Is that trust gone forever? I don’t know. You need rest. I’ll go.

[ Door closes ] Glady: Complication? What complication? Where’s my son? Brando is still in the or, but his surgery has been suspended to get his blood pressure stabilized. I want to see my husband. I’m so sorry, sasha, but that’s not possible. Brando will remain in the or so dr. Chang can resume surgery as soon as he’s stabilized. We’re doing all we can. You were at charlie’s pub earlier? Yes. When you left, which exit did you take? I went out the back. Why? Um, I was following dex heller. Hold on. Dex was there? Sonny’s man? Yeah, yeah, he was at charlie’s with sonny. He left his sunglasses behind, I grabbed them, and I tried to follow him out and give them back to him. And did you find him? No, actually. I still have his sunglasses. Did you see anyone in the alley? No. It was empty. Wait. Do you think the guy with the hook was there when joss was? I don’t know. I hope not. Huh. That’s not creepy. Alright, well, I’m sorry that I couldn’t be more helpful. No. It’s okay. Maybe mr. Heller saw something. Tj: I have to return to the or. Just have the nurse page me if you have any other questions. Nina: Let’s find you a place to sit down.

[ Indistinct conversation ] I got your text. What’s up? Yeah, I saw you talking to josslyn at charlie’s pub. You guys seemed friendly. It was totally innocent. Oh, I know that’s true. Because if you tried anything, I’d kill ya.

[ Laughs ] From now on, I’ll stay away from josslyn. That’s not what I want. Um… you guys seem like, you know, friendly, and she seems to like you a little more. Can I — can I trust you to discreetly… keep an eye on her? You can count on me, boss.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Faye: Passengers on flight 214, originally nonstop from port charles to aruba, due to severe thunderstorms, all flights out of jacksonville have been delayed at this time. We apologize for the delay. Hi. I’m on the flight to aruba and I just heard the announcement that all flights are delayed. Do you know for how long? Is there an estimated time of departure? I’m sorry, but until this storm passes, you’re not going anywhere.

[ Sighs ] Carly, hey, it’s me. I just finished a meeting at the grill, and I thought I’d give you a shot. But the fact that I’m getting your voicemail probably means you’re still bound for aruba with no wi-fi. Carly, your message said that you wanted to talk, so I’m here. Just as soon as you can, give me a call, okay? Hi, dad. Hi! Wow. Oh, my goodness. You look so beautiful! How did you know this is exactly what I needed? Lucky guess. Yeah. Lucky guess.

[ Sighs ] Again, this is a procedural question. If your service informed a subscriber that they had a genetic match and the other party removed their identity from the database, is there a way to contact the individual to confirm the match? Hey, the, uh, the sergeant said you wanted to see me? Oh, you’re on a call. I can come back if it’s important. I know that you’re anxious to talk to jordan again [Sighs] But are you sure that that’s the best tactic? Sure. Not having the divorce papers signed, sealed, and delivered is inconvenient. But your lawyer has a copy. You and jordan can sign them again. The judge can make it official, and… then you and i can plan our wedding. Well, you’re right when it comes to the paperwork. But it’s not a matter of when or how, but why? Why would jordan deliberately lose that paperwork? But why do you think that it was intentional? Accidents happen. She could have misplaced them. Jordan didn’t get to be commissioner by skipping details, and I don’t, for one minute, believe that that paperwork magically disappeared off of her desk while she was away recuperating. There has to be a reason why — why — why she got rid of those papers. Well, I can think of one reason, but we’ve been down that road before. Try me. Jordan lost the papers because she doesn’t want a divorce. She’s still in love with you. Are you sure you want to leave sonny’s bodyguard outside. I mean, aren’t you afraid that your loving husband is going to try to kill you again? You say that like it’s a joke. Even though the alibi you gave about being with elizabeth the whole time turns out to be a bold-faced lie. I explained that — I want the truth. Are you the one who tried to kill me the night of the quartermaine picnic? Gladys: Talk about true love.

[ Chuckles ] My brando’s been gone less than a minute and she misses him already. Sasha, hi. I know you’re still getting used to the idea of guardianship, but it could have been a lot worse.

[ Thunder rumbling ] Um, you love brando. You trust brando. You’re going to make decisions together, instead of some court-appointed officer. You can rely on brando, always. I do know that.

[ Thunder crashes ]

[ Suspenseful music plays ]

[ Chain jingling ]

[ Thump ]

[ Shouts ]

[ Screaming ]


Rse, I understandthe need for confidentiality. When it comes to someone’s identity, you can’t be too careful. Thank you so much for your help. Sorry about that.

[ Exhales deeply ] I was just following up on a lead. Uh, desk sergeant said you had an update on the ava jerome case. Possibly. Walk me through the inventory you did at the quartermaine boathouse. Anything missing? Yeah, there was, actually — a gaff, you know, like a slaughter hook? Used in fishing it. It’s, uh — you know, if a fish is too large or heavy to get out of the water and into the boat, they use the hook. Um — there’s a rack with fishing equipment and room for six hooks. There were five hooks there, and one was missing. Quartermaines say the sixth one that was missing is the largest. I just got confirmation from the surgeon and csi. Ava’s injuries were consistent with a curved implement with a barbed head. She wasn’t stabbed. She was speared with a hook. Brando:

[ Grunting, groaning ]

[ Screaming ]

[ Crying, breathing rapidly ]

[ Screaming continues ] Stay here. Kristina: Help me!! Brando! Help! Help!

[ Screaming, crying ] Sonny: Kristina! Please! What happened?!

[ Sobbing ] Do you really think that I’m the one that tried to kill you? Here’s a name you might remember. Hayden barnes. My relationship with hayden has nothing to do with what happened to you. Why did you lie about your alibi?

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Exhales sharply ] I was protecting elizabeth. She’s been having some mental-health issues. Yeah, I heard that she was at shadybrook for a time. Yeah, she had some kind of a blackout the night at the quartermaines. She had no memory of where she was when you were attacked. I do not believe for one second that elizabeth baldwin attacked me. Neither do I. But if she would have told the truth, it would have looked very suspicious. And I didn’t want her to get a third degree from the cops. Not after the hell that she’s been through. So what you consider a lie, I call protecting one of my oldest friends. Ava. Now, deep down in your heart, you believe me, don’t you? I believe you concocted an alibi. The question is, was it to protect elizabeth, or was it meant to save your own skin? What are you two doing here looking so elegant? This was actually scout’s idea. She got really high marks at lila’s kids.

[ Gasps ] Congratulations. Thanks, dad. I was the best swimmer in my age group. Really?! Mm-hmm. That’s my girl. No surprise to me. Yeah. And as you know, tomorrow is her first day of school. So I promised her a special mother-daughter dessert of creme brlE. Ooh! And if you didn’t know, this place comes highly recommended. Hm. First day of school. Will you take me? Absolutely. Cross my heart, okay. Aww. Hey, scout, honey, I think this is our special table. Do you want to sit there while I talk to your daddy? Okay, you go ahead. Okay. All right. I’ll be right back. What’s going on? As you know

[Sighs] Our daughter adores you. I am so thrilled to see her. You have no idea. I adore her, too. And that is no secret. But what did you want to discuss that you couldn’t say in front of scout? Carly: Okay, just so we’re clear, I’m okay with being rerouted. I’ll even take a connecting flight or two. Whatever it takes to get me to aruba so I can attend this seminar that I’m booked for. Do you understand? Ma’am, the weather here in jacksonville is the issue. No flights are currently taking off, and they won’t until the storm passes. Okay. Well, can you keep us posted? I will.

[ Thunder rumbles ]

[ Sighs ] I can’t believe this. They’re not even trying to get us out of here. Honey, you are in florida during hurricane season. Those airline folk are doing the best they can. But I have to say, in my experience, when a person is as eager to move out as you seem to be, it usually means they’re trying to run away from something or somebody.


Kristina: [ Sobbing ] A man has been stabbed, and he’s bleeding really badly. We’re — we’re at charlie’s pub, but we’re not in the pub, we’re in the alley behind it!

[ Groans ] Hurry! Please. It’s bad. No! No, brando!! Sasha: [ Screaming ] Brando! Oh, my god! Sonny: It’s all right. Go inside. Brando!! Gladys: What happened?! It’s all right. Kristina: He was stabbed! Oh, god.

[ Grunting ] Oh, my god. Sasha: [ Sobbing ] So ava was stabbed with a slaughter hook? Wow.

[ Inhales sharply ] Okay, so next question is, is was this a crime of opportunity — someone saw the hook and someone to use it on? Or was ava the target and the hook was the best available option? Let’s start with the second theory. Ava was the intended target. All right. Well, she’s got a ton of enemies, which means there’s a lot of possibilities. Well, we only need one. The right one. Okay. Well, you think about how many people were at the quartermaine picnic and the size of that property, I– it’s virtually impossible to figure out who was where when the attack happened. That means we going to have to do this the hard way. Go back over everyone’s statements and see which ones hold up and which ones don’T. Okay, I’ll, uh, I’ll do that and get on it right now.

[ Clears throat ] We don’t both need to pull an all nighter. I know you just moved into a new house. Don’t you have some unpacking to do? Yeah. Yeah, I do, actually, but… sam, she’ll — she’ll understand.

[ Scoffs ] Take it from me, that is a very slippery slope. First, it starts out with understanding, then it’s wondering what’s taking so long, until one day it — well, you already know how my story ends. What jordan and I had ended a long time ago. For you, maybe. But I wondered about it when trina was first suspected of the revenge porn against josslyn and cameron.

[ Inhales deeply ] Right. I remember you were worried that there was something personal about jordan’s investigation. Right. But I was mistaken. And in fact, thanks to jordan’s help, trina is free now. But… maybe jordan doesn’t really know how she feels about you.

[ Breathes deeply ] Maybe she thought she had put you behind her and that she had moved on. But I once thought that I had done the same thing, too, remember? Trust me, curtis ashford is a hard man to forget.

[ Chuckles ] Tj: Portia. Hey, I hate to interrupt, but mr. Ferguson is asking for you. He says you’re the only doctor he trusts. Can’t blame him.

[ Sighs ] Hopefully it won’t be too long, okay? Sorry to interrupt your conversation. No, don’t, t, actually, uh, you’re just the person I wanted to talk to. It’s about your mom.

[ Labored breathing ] Sasha: Brando?

[ Sobbing ] Brando, don’t leave me. What can I do to help? Kristina called 9-1-1. The ambulance is on the way. Put some pressure right there to stop the bleeding. I’ll take over.

[ Labored breathing ] You’ll be okay, brando. I’m here. I’m right here. What is taking so long?! Where’s the ambulance?

[ Sirens wailing in distance ] Can you hear that? Help I– help is on the way! Sasha: You’re all right. Hold on, all right? Hold on, dear, okay?

[ Labored breathing ]

[ Shakily ] Just hold on.

[ Sobbing ]

[ Sirens approaching ] Just hold on.

[ Panting ] Stay…


do you mind if I join you? Please have a seat. Okay.

[ Exhales deeply ] All right. Well, you know, you implied earlier that I was running from something when actually, I’m running to something. I’m on my way to a seminar in aruba where I’m going to learn how to shape my future and discover what opportunities are out there for someone with my skills and experiences. Oh. If you say so. What’s in the carrier? Is it a dog or a cat? Oh. That’s my — my rescue dog, gretel.

[ Laughs ] She — aww. She travels with me wherever I go.

[ Laughs ]

[ Sweetly ] Hi. She’s a great judge of character. Oh, she likes you. Yeah. Yeah? How can you tell? Well, we’ve been together a lot of years, and if gretel doesn’t like someone, I know right away.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] Come on. You know, nobody likes to have to wait here, but you seem downright, uh, unsettled. I grew up in jacksonville.

[ Gasps ] Well, then you already know — 42 miles of beaches.

[ Chuckles ] The best fish on this side of key west and the gator bowl every new year’s eve. Ohhh! [ Giggles ] If you don’t mind my asking, what made you leave? Just looking for something else. Oh, did you find it?

[ Thunder crashes ] Yeah. Yeah, I think so. I have three beautiful daughters, an amazing son, the most adorable grandson, friends and family. Yeah. And yet, here you are, right back where you started. Life’s kinda funny that way, isn’t it? Hmm?

[ Chuckles ]

[ Chuckles ] You know, I have a weather app. I bet you it will show me when the storm’s gonna end. Oh, well, I don’t need a weather report to tell me what’s going on. Like I said, this is florida and hurricane season.

[ Scoffs ]

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, jacksonville is great and all, but I had a tough time here, so when I left, I was really happy to go. Ohh. Oh, my god. I left my phone on the plane.

[ Sighs deeply ] Sam: Cards on the table? I heard you’ll leave that message for carly. Yeah. I was just returning a call. Ooh. She’s on her way to aruba… ooh, that’s a romantic destination. …To attend an executive leadership seminar. Okay. That doesn’t mean you can’t mix business with pleasure

if the right guy shows up. Don’t you have enough on your plate with dante and rocco moving in? Congratulations, by the way. Knowing you, you probably had a thousand justifications for putting it off. Ugh. You do know me well, don’t you? I think what happened was dante was trying to do what he thought I wanted, and I was trying to do what I thought he wanted. And you were making each other miserable.

[ Exhales deeply ] Really? Okay, the — the misunderstanding was miserable, but the resolution was… not. Mm. I’m not miserable. Sam. What? It’s okay. What? You can just say it — you and dante are happy. Yes, we are.

[ Giggles ] And I’m really happy for you. Come here. Give me a hug. Thank you. Aww. That’s so great. Scout: Why are you guys hugging? Oh. Oh, why are we hugging? Um… baby, he is always gonna be your dad, and we are always gonna be family. And we are… friends. We’re the best friends. Yeah. And we always will be. But I gotta finish this conversation with your mom. Would you mind playing your game just a little bit longer? Is that okay? Yeah. Maybe I can convince your mom to bring home some

[Whispering] Extra dessert. Thank you.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I got it. Don’t you worry. You’re gonna spoil her. That’s what we do, right? I mean, we love ’em and care for ’em and set rules and boundaries, but then, yeah, [Whispering] We spoil ’em little bit. Yeah. You do all of those things. Well, scout makes it easy. Mm-hmm. Adult relationships — yeah. Man, those are the tricky ones. Those are a bit more complicated. Really? Anyone I know? You and sam are two of the lucky few who get another ride on the merry-go-round. So go on, get out of here, and live your life. I wa– that’s an order. Okay, I will. First, uh… I heard curtis and portia got engaged. How you doing with that? I appreciate you asking, but really, I’m fine. I mean, it hardly comes as a surprise, you know? They did buy a house, after all. And as for me, I — I’m just ready to start the next chapter of my life. So… anything else, detective? No, I’ll, uh, get out of here. Oh, uh, dante. Yeah. Sometime, I’d like to pick your brain. But definitely while we’re off the clock. Okay, about what? A case of mistaken identity. Or it could be… there was no mistake at all. Curtis: In general, how’s your mom? You know my mom. She is working 24/7 ever since the night of the quartermaine picnic. Unfortunately, they don’t have any leads, from what I understand. Well, I know how dedicated your mom can be and sometimes work, you know, it– it’s a convenient excuse. Excuse for what? Well, you know, not getting back out there, risking getting hurt again. Uncle, I don’t — I don’t — I don’t know what you want me to tell you. My mom doesn’t cue me in on her personal life. You’re divorce was barely final when she got injured, and she was away for months recuperating. And since then? Why are you asking me this now? What’s going on, uncle curtis? If elizabeth has no memory of where she was or who she was with when I was attacked, then she can’t incriminate you. Nor can she exonerate you.

[ Sighs ] You and I… we’re both hot blooded people, okay? And our marriage has left us with more than a few, shall we say, love bites. Is that what we’re calling a brutal attack now? But no matter how much we’ve hurt each other, there is no way in hell that I would ever try to kill the woman that I love, and you know it! Maybe you love me too much to try to kill me yourself, but we both know that wouldn’t stop you from hiring someone else to do the job, just like you did with hayden barnes! There’s a difference with hayden. I never loved her.

[ Breathing shallowly ] Sasha: Brando, I’m right here, okay? You gotta stay with me.

[ Sirens wailing, ambulance horn blaring ] Do you hear that? Listen to me, I love you so much. I love you so much. Man: Step back, please.

[ Sobbing ] Stay with me. Everything will be fine. Sasha, we — we have to give them space. Brando!

[ Gasps ] Oh! You have to save my son! Please, don’t let him die! Please! Sonny: Come here. Lis– listen to me.

[ Breathing shakily ] You did good, okay? Thank god you’re okay. Just tell me what happened. Talk to me. He– okay. I was — I was on my way to work, and I cut through the alley, like I do sometimes. And — and, um, it — the sky opened up and it started pouring rain, and [Inhales sharply] Um, I saw something moving, and it was a hook, and someone was swinging it at brando!

[ Crying ] And I saw brando fall to the ground and I started screaming. Sweetie, listen. Did you did you see the attacker’s face? No! It was pouring rain. And it all happened so fast. And — and [Inhales sharply] It was like a shadow that just suddenly came to life and — and — and that — that thing that — that — look, I saw it flash right before he– okay, okay, okay. It’s all right, it’s all right. Come here. Come on, come on. We’re losing him. Sasha and gladys:

[ Sobbing ] No! Brando!! Brando. Brando.


Okay. Excuse me. I don’t mean to bother you again, but I left my phone on the plane, so I have to reboard, search around my seat, and I need to find my phone. I’m sorry, but the plane has been moved. You can’t reboard. But I need my cellphone. You’ll have to look for it in the airline lost and found.

[ Thunder rumbling ] Only in jacksonville. I left my phone on the plane, and they won’t let me back on to get it. Oh, you young people and your cellphones. It’s like you’ve forgotten how to use your imagination. You have no good memories of jacksonville. Fine. But certainly you can, uh, close your eyes and think of something that makes you smile. You have no idea how many times I’ve pictured this. You have? You haven’t? About every 30 seconds. Mm. Think I’m at about every five. Sam: Drew. Drew. What? Yeah, no. Sorry. What were you saying? Wait. [ Mockingly ] What was I saying? Wait, no. What is that smile on your face? And I already know the answer, so I don’t even know why I’m asking. Uh…

[ Mockingly ] Uh… what?

[ Stammering ] Look, let’s just say… that… [ Sighs ]

[ Giggles ] There’s a lot at stake. Uh-huh. And a lot depends on timing. Okay, well, why don’t you just say it? We’re talking about carly, aren’t we? This case of mistaken identity — is that the call you were on when I walked in? Yes, it was. Listen, you want my opinion as a friend… what’s this about?

[ Telephone rings ]

[ Sighs ] Hold on. Yeah. Commissioner ashford. Dante, wait. Okay, thanks. I’m on my way. There was another stabbing in the alley behind charlie’s pub. According to an eyewitness, the weapon appeared to be a hook. Same thing that was used on ava. I’ll fill you in on the way. All right. I — t, I’m sorry, man. I don’t mean to pry. I just want to, you know, see that jordan finds genuine happiness like I found with portia. Or, you know, like you found with molly. Right. I know you want good things for my mom, but it’s been almost a year since the divorce, and all of a sudden you’re asking me questions. Do you know something that I don’t know? Woman: He’s got a pulse. Oh, thank you, god. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Sasha: I’m his wife. I’m coming with you. Gladys: I’m his mother! Hey, can you let them go? I have my daughter here. We’re going to stay back and answer any questions you want to ask. Man: Yeah, that’s fine. Woman: Okay, let’s go. Don’t give up hope! Brando’s a fighter. I know you said that for their sakes, but… no, I meant it. Your cousin brando survived addiction, combat, everything cyrus renault through at him. He’s going to make it. He has to.


So you did find a happy memory to think about.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Laughs ] It’s like I said, it works every time.

[ Both laugh ] You’re a very wise woman, and I bet you’re speaking from experience, and that you have a special someone in your life.

[ Inhales deeply ] Ooof. Well, yes and no. I had several attempts at love.

[ Chuckles ] But none of them could ever really stick the landing. I learned a long time ago I was better off loving animals. Never met a man as loyal as a dog.

[ Both laugh ] They never disappoint you, and they certainly never bounce a check. Oh, but you young people don’t even write checks anymore, huh? You have everything on your phones.

[ Chuckles ] Well, since my phone is on the plane, I should focus on my surroundings more. You know? Maybe there is something good in jacksonville. Thanks to you and gretel.

[ Chuckles ] Faye: For passengers traveling to aruba, I have an update. Is it that obvious to people that, uh, carly and I are circling around each other? Well, I am not most people, so I can’t speak for most people, but… I think I — I do know you better than most, and… don’t worry, your secret, not so secret — is safe with me. All right. So she hasn’t — I mean, she hasn’t said anything to you? No, not [Chuckles] Not a word. Okay. But, hey! When I see the two of you together, I see that there’s — there’s a spark. There is a connection. I — I just hope that that connection isn’t going to be, um, an issue for you. Oh! I mean, as long as you and carly can get your timing right. No worries. It’s no issue for me. You know, for the longest time when people would ask me about carly, I would always say that she was jason’s friend, not my friend. But in jason’s absence, carly and I have gravitated toward each other. Nice. Yeah, well. Mom. Yeah? I can’t get past this level on my game. Let me see. Okay, let me help you with that. I’ll be back. Okay.

[ Ringing ]

[ Beep ] Hi. You’ve reached carly corinthos.

I’m sorry I missed your call,

but leave me a message

and I’ll call you back.

[ Beep ] Hey, uh, it’s me again. I just thought maybe your flight might have landed by now. Um… just give me a call when you get a chance. Okay, bye. Look, ava. We’re both flawed people with serious errors in judgment in the past. And you can keep throwing hayden barnes in my face just like I could throw you swapping morgan corinthos’ bipolar meds with placebos, okay? Are we on a level playing field now? I suppose we are. Then let’s be honest. If you know me at all, you know that if I wanted to kill you, I wouldn’t job it out. And I wouldn’t use a weapon. I would do it with my bare hands. Wow! Finally, an honest conversation between us. Even if it does have fatal implications. Well, isn’t that what made us different from the very start? Is now what we always had? Isn’t that what — what makes us so damn crazy about each other? I think a lot of people would say that we’re just plain crazy. Well, who cares what other people think? You and I were made for each other. Don’t look at me like that.

[ Whispering ] Why not? ‘Cause I — I don’t want to want you. So… you still want me? Of course I want you. And do you think that the — the pain of being stabbed hurts me more than knowing that you couldn’t keep your hands off esm prince? Yes! I am a man capable of sleeping with my son’s girlfriend. I’m not proud of it, but I own who I am. I am a cad, a rat, a liar. But would you believe me if I said I was anything else, if I — if I tried to convince you that I was some kind of a hero on a white horse? It’s not who I am. I know it. So do you. But we could still make some good out of this nightmare, ava. But we can’t do it apart. We can only do it together. What about the attacker’s height — over or under six feet? I don’t know. Can we stop? Look, you’ve asked, like, 100 different ways, you know, for her to describe the attacker, and she’s already given you everything she knows. Okay. Thank you for cooperating.

[ Sighs ] Thank you for that. I just — I want to go to the hospital and check on brando.

[ Door opens ] Okay, well, we’re — kristina, I heard you’re the only eyewitness. Sonny: Yeah, that’s true. But she’s already given her statement to that cop over there. And if — if you need me to come down to the station to answer any more questions tomorrow, I’m happy to do that. But I need to get to the hospital to check on my cousin. You know brando was the victim, right? Dante: Yeah, yeah, I heard. So we’re very tired, so we just want to go to G.H. I get that. You’re both free to go. Hey, wait, wait, wait. Just, uh… I just — I don’t — I don’t know — I don’t know. Tell sasha and gladys I’m thinking of ’em? Yeah, I will. Come on. Tj: We need a set for a central line and get the rapid infuser. I want three more units of 0-neg to fly in. And let me know when the blood gases come back. His trachea is deviating to the left. Portia: He has diminished breath sounds on the left side. His lung is collapsing. Hand me the 14-gauge needle. I need to decompress his lung till we get a chest tube.

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Sniffling, beads jingling ] Hey, I know you’re both scared, and you have every right to be. The main thing to focus on now is that brando is getting medical care. Portia and tj are two of general hospital’s very best. He’s in good hands. He’s just so pale. I need him so much. Brando can’t die. He just can’T.

[ Breathing shakily ]


Okay, well, it was really nice meeting you. And it was nice meeting you, too, gretel.

[ Chuckles ] You have a great mommy, but I think you already know that. It was nice meeting you, too. See ya. Faye: For those of you on flight number 214 to aruba, that flight has been officially canceled.

[ Scattered moans and groans ] Canceled?

[ Groans ] Now what am I gonna do? Well, looks like you’ll be spending the night as a guest of the airlines.

[ Chuckles ] Welcome home, hon. Sam: There. That should do it. Well, I got to get going, but I am so happy for you. Your family just keeps getting bigger. Now, you and danny, you have mom, and you have dante and rocco, and you’ve got me. Who do you have, daddy? Scout. Daddy has us. That’s right. Always. I’ll see you, sweetie. Tomorrow — first day of school. Okay. Dante: Okay. That’s good. Thanks, matthews.

[ Camera shutter clicking, indistinct chatter ] So… kristina saw the attack, but not the attacker’s face. She saw the weapon. It sounds like it was this hook. The same thing that was used on ava jerome. But how does an attack on brando corbin fit together with ava? I don’t know. I don’t know. We got means but no motive. We may not have the time or luxury of knowing why. We need to find whoever did this before they attack again. You’re not playing fair. I’m being honest. How’s that not playing fair? If you’d come in here and sworn your undying love, I’d have called security and had you thrown out. But when you own up to what a lousy rat you are, how you can’t be trusted, it almost makes me trust you. Almost.

[ Door opens ] Cassadi– ava! What the hell is he doing here? It’s okay, sonny. I — I — I told frank to stand down. Nicholas and i had something to settle. And we’ve done that. Come on, sonny, do your worst. Not that this matters to you, but I’m not the one that tried to kill ava. I know. I just heard from the or. The team is ready for us. Portia: You heard the man. Let’s go. Let’s go! Sasha: Brando. Brando, I love you so much, okay?

[ Sobbing ] You’re going to be okay. You hear me? You’re gonna be fine! I’ll be right here. Listen to me. I love you so much, okay? I love you!

General Hospital Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

How could there be no record of our divorce? We — we — we filed that paperwork over a year ago, and I brought them here to you in this office. What exactly did your attorney say? He said because the papers hadn’t been filed, according to the state of new york, that [Sighs] — That we’re still married. But that’s impossible. Nothing’s impossible. What does that mean?

[ Grunts ]

[ Breathing deeply ] Hey, marshall, wait. Wait, wait, wait, wait.

[ Breathing heavily ] Look — yeah, look, uh, I can’t talk right now. I’m on my way to meet epiphany. If I could just slow you down for one second, honestly, I owe you an apology. Thank you so much for meeting me. I know you got a lot going on with school starting. Mom, my dorm’s almost unpacked, okay? And you never bother me. Hm. Stop. So, is this about you going to aruba for the leadership executive seminar? You know I’m in full support. I got you. I know. And I don’t want you worrying about donna and avery because pilar is going to be with them around the clock while I’m gone. Yeah, well, I plan on spending time with them, too. And I appreciate that. But I know you have quite a few distractions.

[ Scoffs ]

[ Door closes ]

[ Door closes ] You changed your mind? You’re — you’re thinking of telling the police you weren’t with nikolas at the time of ava’s attack? I don’t know if I was or wasn’T. Okay. You were… pretty determined

not to tell the police you’ve been losing time. I’m just curious — what changed?

[ Groans ]

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Grunting ] Help… help me.

[ Door opens, knock on door ] Ava?

[ Beeping continues ] You up for a visitor? Hm. Depends.

[ Elevator bell dings ] I don’t think you have any business here. My wife is my business, and I’ll damn well see her if I want to. If you get within five feet of ava’s room… you’re not gonna like what’s gonna happen. The judge has already reviewed dr. Rubin’s recommendation and the legal documents. Mr. Corbin, you will be in charge of your wife’s finances and medical care, and you will have her power of attorney. The judge agrees there will be no prison time so long as sasha agrees to the guardianship and commits to attend outpatient rehab and therapy. That’s very important. Sasha, once you’ve entered into this guardianship, only brando has the power to terminate it. Do you understand? Babe, this is completely up to you. It’s your choice. If it does not feel right, we won’t do it. But that’s the deal. If — if you don’t take the deal, sasha will go to prison. Yes, but she can change her plea and go to trial. Sasha, you still have options. You understand that, right? So? What do you want to do?

[ Breathes sharply ]

Tide pods ultra oxi

one ups the cleaning power of

liquid. Can it one up whatever they’re doing?

For sure. Seriously?

One up the power of liquid,

one up the toughest stains.

Any further questions? Uh uh!

One up the power of liquid

with tide pods ultra oxi. The day of the heart attack, I was scared.I didn’t know what to do. Seeing my daughter have a heart attack, it shook me.

Aspirin helps

reduce the chance

of another

heart attack by 31%.

Be sure to talk

to your doctor

before you begin

an aspirin regimen. Do you want to go say “hi” to him? Oh, no, it’s fine. Are you sure? I mean, you guys saved ava’s life together. That’s kind of a big deal. Josslyn: Okay. Okay. Okay, I got it. Good job. Good job. It’s around. Okay. Now what? You keep pressure on the wound. Okay. My suv is nearby. I parked it in the back. We’re gonna carry ava to my car. You’re gonna ride in the back and keep pressure on the wound. I’ll drive. Okay, but won’t all this movement hurt her more? We do this or she dies. Carly: Joss? Hmm? Hello? Sorry, um, no, mom. It’s — it’s all good. We– we’ve talked since everything happened, and it’s all good. Okay. All right. Yeah. Um, so, back to you…

[ Chuckles ] Is there anything else you need me to do to facilitate your trip? Sasha: According to my attorney, martin grey, this is the best way to keep me out of prison. Correct? Yes. Hey. If you want to call this off, I will back you completely. Okay? We will find another way to fight the charges against you. I know I need help. And of course, I trust you, but…

[ Breathes deeply ] It’s just not easy signing my life over. I know, sash. Brando only wants to keep you out of prison and help you heal. It’s what we all want. And this is not a permanent solution, you know? Yeah. I-if you decide to go ahead with — with the guardianship, then we will schedule a formal check-in with dr. Rubin and the hospital administrator every month to see how you’re feeling. And we will decide together when to terminate the guardianship. I won’t let it go on longer than it has to — not one day. Won’t be soon enough for me. Bring back mr. Taylor.

[ Door opens ] You have no jurisdiction over this hospital or my wife. For whatever reason, ava thinks you tried to kill her, and that concerns me. And I’m trying to figure out how to deal with it.

[ Scoffs ] I would never hurt ava that way, and I have to make her understand that. And you keeping her away from me — that’s not helping. Why don’t you write her a note? Let me tell you something. If I get any proof that you had something to do with this, not even your uncle victor is gonna be able to help you. You coming? Go to hell. One look at ava, that’s where you’re going to go. Your bp is slightly elevated. Still a little anxious, I see. [ Chuckles ] Uh, no, I-I’m just a little distracted by that…

[ Monitor beeping ] …Giant bauble on your finger there to think about much else. Oh. [ Chuckles ] Curtis proposed.

[ Chuckles ] Congratulations. So why do you sound like you’re about to recite the changes in the tax code? Are you excited? No, really, I’m — I’m over the moon about it.

[ Chuckles ] It’s just that trina told me that you blocked nikolas from seeing you, and — I don’t know, I just didn’t feel like it was the appropriate time to share the news, considering everything else that you’re going through. That’s thoughtful of you. Thank you. And it’s true — things have gotten pretty bad. Portia, I’ve even wondered… …if nikolas was the one who stabbed me. Ava, no. No, no, no. That’s horrible. I mean, no, no. To even have to entertain the notion of your husband trying to kill you — oh, he — he says he has an alibi, but I still have unanswered questions. Like what? For one… would elizabeth baldwin lie to the cops to cover for nikolas? I was talking to dante, and it’s looking less and less likely that ava was targeted at random. He thinks the attacker knew her. That’s interesting.

[ Sighs ] Just say it. You think it’s suspicious that nikolas provided me with an alibi so quickly. No, no. Just wondering if that changes anything for you. I do wonder why he leapt to my defense so quickly. I mean, he said he doesn’t believe I did it, so why would I need an alibi? Unless the alibi was meant to protect nikolas. It’s just that impossible things happen all the time. I mean, you never know what to expect. Right? Right. I suppose, uh, it was just filed improperly because I can’t imagine what else it would be. But if either of you have a theory, I would love to know what it is. Well, we’re all human. Nobody’s perfect. And I know that you have experienced the power of forgiveness with your father. Auntie, what is this have to do with marshall? Someone at that clerk’s office made a mistake, and there should be consequences. Lives were affected, right? And I’m sorry that I just can’t let this go. I know what happened, curtis. Time. It’s life’s most precious commodity, especially when you have metastatic breast cancer.

For free help,

call 1-800-quit now. Look, I’ve been wanting to say this for some time. I’m — I’m really sorry for setting you up on that fake job interview. I re– I — I should have apologized long before now. Nobody likes being fooled, right? So I felt like a sucker, and that ain’t me. But I had a lot of time to think about it, and I realized you were just trying to be a good friend to my son. Curtis has been a very good friend to me, sir. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can see that. You know, but I guess maybe if I — if I had been honest with curtis all along, you wouldn’t have gotten dragged into his mission to find out what I was hiding. Mm. So, there it is. I guess it’s on me. So no hard feelings? Yeah, man. We all good. I don’t like what you did, but I appreciate why you did it. Did it for my family. Yeah, and you were there for curtis when I couldn’t be. Okay, so I emailed you the emergency numbers for the girls’ pediatrician. Mm-hmm. Sonny already has all this information. It’s just in case he needs help from you, you should have it. Okay? Right. You know I know most of this, right? You know… this is a bad time for me to go away. It is. Because school is just starting. Ava’s still in the hospital. I mean, what am I thinking? Mom! Donna and avery are gonna be fine. They have me. They have pilar. They have sonny. Fingers crossed, I don’t need to visit them at sonny’s penthouse. If I do, oh, well. I’ll live.

[ Chuckles ] Stop stalling. What do you mean “stalling”? This is your time. Focus on you and your career.

[ Sighs ] I really want to go to this seminar. I really do. You know, I’ve just been so untethered since I lost my half of the hotel, and I’m not used to feeling aimless. So, yeah, I really want to go, and I want to get my life back on track… in every way. There’s something underneath that scares you. And I’m here to tell you… you don’t have to be afraid of me. Josslyn: Mom. Yeah? Where’d you go? Uh, just thinking about my next step, yeah. Great. Keep the focus on yourself. Everything’s covered here. I promise. Okay. All right. So, lunch is on me. Oh. And here you go. There’s a little extra just in case something comes up. Oh, okay. I have to get out of here because the day is getting away from me. All right. Here, give me a hug. Oh. I love you so much. I love you so much.Thank you for being you, okay? Have a wonderful trip.

[ Squeals ] Okay. Bye. Okay. Bye. Hey. Aren’t you supposed to get going? Yeah. I was just meeting with josslyn, giving her some, you know, last-minute information — that’s all. Yeah, but you know what? Don’t worry about it. ‘Cause pilar is at the penthouse with donna and avery. We — we got this. Yeah, I know, I know. I-it — I’m probably going to call every night before they go to bed just to check in, okay?

[ Chuckles ] I’m sure you will. Okay. Hey, um… good luck. Thanks. Nikolas seems to really love ava. I can’t see him trying to kill her. Yeah, you know him better than I do. Why do you think he insisted on making you his alibi? I told him I lost time. And maybe he couldn’t vouch for his whereabouts, either. You know, the thing is, there was a lot of people on the property that night. You don’t know what one of them may have seen or what they said to the police. I guess the concern is, the longer you hold out, the more it will cast suspicion on nikolas…or you. A situation has come up I need you to get to G.H. Right away. Nikolas told me that he was with elizabeth when I was attacked.

[ Monitor beeping ] Well, then it sounds like he has an alibi. They’ve known each other since they were teenagers. If anybody would lie to protect nikolas, it’s elizabeth. I just don’t think that elizabeth would lie to the police about something like that, ava — I really don’T. Maybe she doesn’t know she’s lying. Maybe she’s being manipulated. My husband is capable of very bad behavior. Surprisingly bad behavior. It’s true what they say, portia — the ones you love the most, they can hurt you the most. You should keep that in mind before you march down the aisle. I understand you’ve made a decision. Yes, I have.

[ Breathes deeply ]

[ Breathes deeply ]

[ Papers rustling ] Jordan, you were there when portia and I got engaged. It never occurred to you to say something then? I only just found out about it.

[ Scoffs ] It’s my fault. I am very sorry, curtis. Help me understand, jordan. You said you filed those papers. I thought I had. I signed them, and I put them in my outbox. After our conversation at trina’s party, I looked through all the mail I received when I was at the clinic. It wasn’t there. And that’s when it hit me. I was going to take the envelope to the courthouse personally, but [Sighs] There was so much going on during that time, and I got called on another matter — I didn’t go. I guess I lost track of it, and [Sighs] It probably wound up getting covered in stacks of mail and documents on my desk. Okay, so you still have the divorce papers. We can file them. Can we look for them? Thanks. – Whoa. – Jake from state farm, I really need to know. Uh, go spicy or go home, right? What? No. What if I’m not sure I have the right coverage for my car?

[ Line ringing ] Drew:

Hey, you’re reached drew cain.

Leave me a message, and I will call you back as soon as I can.

[ Beeps ] Keep an eye on the docks. You make sure that the wus are sticking to their agreement. You got it, boss. Anything else? That’s it for now. Hey, sonny.

[ Chuckling ] Hey. What’s going on, buddy? Not much, man. Care to join us for dinner? Or have you already eaten? Uh, uh, no. I got some business I gotta take care of, but thank you. Any– what’s — what’s — what’s going on here?

[ Inhales deeply ] Uh… how ’bout you two catch up, and I’ll go put in an order for the table? Skipped lunch, so I’m starved.

[ Chuckles ] I know what everyone likes. So do you mind if I make the selections? Might as well get used to it. We, um, actually just reached a decision with the courts. Um, sasha doesn’t have to serve prison time. That’s great, right? Sasha: Yeah. Yeah. Excuse me. I will be right back. What’s the agreement? Well, to avoid a prison sentence, sasha had to agree to a — a guardianship. She just signed over her entire life to me. Hi. You got a minute? Sure. Good. Uh, there’s something that we need to get straight. You know, if the police are going to catch whoever did this to ava, they — they probably need accurate information. You have a good point. And, hey, look, if nikolas is innocent, he’s got nothing to worry about. Except fabricating an alibi to begin with. What’s going to happen when I tell the police that nikolas and i weren’t together the whole time? We’re both going to become suspects. You know, it’s your call. Whatever you decide, I’m in your corner.

[ Sighs ] It’s a lose-lose no matter what I do. I just need to think about it for a minute. I understand. There might be one other thing to consider — as long as ava’s attacker is on the loose…

[Sighs] She could still be in danger. Yeah, you’re right. Ava deserves to know the truth. Are you gonna tell her? I don’t actually havethe divorce papers, curtis. Wha– you just said you had them in a stack of documents on your desk. That was a year ago. Just before I wound up spending several months recuperating in albany.

[ Sighs ] That envelope’s probably long gone. Jordan, this is all really irresponsible. My caseload was immense during that time, but that’s no excuse. Those papers were important, and I should have dealt with them immediately. I’ve complicated things for you and portia, and I’m sorry. Stella: Hey, life happens. You know, you — you should understand that, don’t you, curtis? I feel terrible about it. And I promise to do whatever I can to make sure your nuptials go as planned. I’ll have my attorney issue new copies, and we’ll refile. That’s probably the fastest way. I’ll sign them as soon as you have them. You have my word. Talk to you later. Jordan, why on earth did you do that? Portia: Curtis is, uh, well, he’s certainly nothing like nikolas, so… oh, no. No, of course he’s not. I’m — I’m so sorry. I’m — I’m not feeling very warm and fuzzy about marriage, but that definitely does not mean that they can’t — frank: You can’t come in. Nikolas: I’m going in there to see my wife. There’s nothing you can do to stop me. So I said, “yeah you’re saving hundreds with the home and auto bundle from progressive, but there’s no saving that casserole!”

[ Both laugh ] I just love that word “bundle.” It’s so fun. Two things coming together like a force of nature, like it was really meant to be, y’know? Yes, yes, I do. And I’m so glad you wanna save money. Rodney, set up a bundle for jon hamm. Mm! Of course! Jon, is it still cool if I catch a ride home with you? I never said it was. But technically you didn’t say it wasn’T. It’s not. Yet. A dental tool is round for a reason.So is an oral-B. Round cleans better by surrounding each tooth. So clean, you’ll feel like you just left the dentist. Oral-B. Brush like a pro. I have moderate to severe ulcerative colitis. So I’m taking zeposia, a once-daily pill. Because I won’t let uc stop me from being me.

Zeposia can help

people with uc

achieve and maintain

remission.

And it’s the

first and only

s1p receptor modulator

approved for uc.

Don’t take zeposia

if you’ve had a heart attack,

chest pain,

stroke or mini-stroke,

heart failure in the

last 6 months,

irregular or

abnormal heartbeat,

if you have untreated

sleep apnea, or take maois.

Zeposia

may cause serious side effects

including infections

that can be life-threatening

and cause death,

slow heart rate,

liver or breathing problems,

increased blood pressure,

macular edema,

swelling and narrowing

of the brain’s blood vessels

and increased risk of

pml–a rare brain infection

that usually leads to death

or severe disability.

Tell your doctor if you

are pregnant or plan to be.

Don’t let uc stop you

from doing you.

If you’re living with moderate

to severe ulcerative colitis,

ask your doctor about

once-daily zeposia. I’m aline and I live in castle valley, california. My husband, barney, and I have been married for 32 years. I think the most important thing in life is to stay healthy. I noticed I was having some memory losses. I discovered prevagen. Since I’ve been on prevagen, I’ve noticed more clarity, more sharpness. The recall mechanism is a lot more concise. I’ve been taking prevagen for almost 10 years. It’s wonderful.

Prevagen.

Keep it quilted means

you keep it the best.

Three layers of plush comfort

you can see and feel.

Keep it quilted because

the best parts of your life…

deserve the best. Huh! They’re here!

So, don’t settle

for anything less.

Keep it quilted with

quilted northern. Step aside or my associate will move you out of the way. Frank: Try me. Mr. Cassadine, please leave. I won’t be barred from seeing my wife. Ava doesn’t want to see you. Now, if you don’t leave, I will have G.H. Security escort you out. Call them. You have no idea what I’m capable of. Is there a problem here? I know I didn’t just hear you threaten my fiancéE. My wife has been badly injured, and they’re keeping me away. What would you do? Well, the way I understand it, she doesn’t wish to see you. Ava’s blood pressure was spiking. That’s why I came out here.

[ Sighs ] You hear that? So, do you wish to pick a fight in the icu just to convince ava that you care? Look, the police are already on their way, okay? So if you don’t want them involved…

[Whispers] I suggest you leave. This isn’t over. Let’s go.

[ Sighs ] I’m gonna go check on ava.

[ Sighs ] Are you doing okay? Do you want to give you something to — to help you settle down?

[ Inhales deeply ] Well, you know, I doubt it would matter. I — I don’t think I’m gonna get any sleep now. You were furious with me, and you had every right to be. Why on earth would you take the blame for me? I’m not excusing what you did.

[ Sighs ] I know taking those papers was way out of line. I’m surprised you would do something like that. It’s so unlike you. But curtis has moved on. I don’t see any reason to undo all that progress now. But still, I — I can’t let you take the blame for me. You’re not. I volunteered. Curtis will be mildly annoyed with me, but he’ll accept it was an accident. I’ll sign the papers, he and portia will get married, you’ll officiate, and everything will be all right. I just don’t see any reason to cause problems between you and curtis or you and portia.

[ Chuckles softly ] I meant what I said when I told curtis that you are still family.

[ Chuckles softly ] And you always will be. Thank you, again, for helping me find avery’s bracelet the other day. It was an adventure. Yes. It — it wasn’t quite as heroic as saving ava’s life, but you stepped up. Literally.

[ Chuckles ] I’m grateful. You’re welcome. I judged you…hard. And that’s really embarrassing because I hate judgy people. So, basically, that makes me a hypocrite. I didn’t make the best first impression.

[ Chuckling ] Yeah, well… I still think that you’re an idiot to work for sonny. Duly noted. Yeah, well, I figured you’d say something like that, but believe it or not, I’m not telling you this because I despise him. I’m telling you this because sonny wrecks people… …and I don’t want you to be one of those people. Just because I don’t take your advice doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate you giving it. I didn’t — I didn’t tell anybody, um, about you helping me out the other night. Not even cam. Your boyfriend? Yeah. It’s just really complicated to explain, so… I would appreciate it if you kept that just between us. Can you do that for me? I’m sure being sasha’s guardian is not easy for either of you. You know what? You’re gonna do right by sasha. You know that. Thanks, sonny.

We all go, why not enjoy

the go with charmin. You’ve been quiet since that little dustup with nikolas.

[ Sighs ] Yeah. I’m okay. Are you? Oh, I’m highly annoyed.

[ Scoffs ] But I don’t even know why I’m surprised by another one of nikolas cassadine’s little stunts. But at least my strong, handsome fiancé showed up when he did.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] Everything’s fine. Oh, by the way, did you talk to your attorney about the divorce papers? Yes. That’s, uh, actually why I came here to talk to you. Apparently, there’s no record of the filing. How is that even possible? Babe, I wondered the same thing. So I went and talked to jordan. She said she thought she’d filed it, but as it turns out, she’d forgotten, and the paperwork must have got thrown away when she was at the clinic in albany. Wait, wa– [ Chuckles ] So you’re telling me that you’ve been married to jordan this entire time? Looks that way. But, baby, don’t worry.

[ Sighs ] Don’t worry. Okay? The attorney is expediting papers as we speak.

[ Sighs ] Well, that’s a relief, I guess. Uh. [ Scoffs ] Isn’t it? Babe? Uh, no, yeah. It is. It is. Definitely. Okay, something else is going on. Something is obviously still bothering you. Just tell me what it is. It’s jordan’s story — just doesn’t add up. And it reminds me of — it reminds me of how she dragged her feet to sign those papers in the first place. It means the world to me that you feel this way. I consider you family, too, stella.

[ Chuckles ] Who’d have thunk it?

[ Both chuckle ] I know what it’s taken for us to get this far. We had to work hard for our relationship. But I have grown to admire, respect, and care about you, jordan. And not just because you tj’s mother, but because of the wonderful person that you are.

[ Sighs ] And now, while I’m still happy for curtis and portia, I hope that you and i can continue to be in each other’s lives. I’d really like that. Besides, I don’t have a lot of family. We’re not all lucky enough to find lost cousins in england. Well, you know what? If you want to know more about your family, you should try a dna test, too. Uh, maybe I will. What was the site you used? I’m going to forward you the email that they sent with my results. Aside from that error saying I had another relative here in port charles, they’re fantastic. You — you gonna follow up? ‘Cause you never know what you’ll find.

[ Chuckles ] Dinner order’s in. Hey, hey. I figured we’d start with dessert first. Something fun and sweet to perk up the mood. Yeah. Where is everybody? Uh, sonny stepped away, and then, um, uh, sasha had to take a moment for herself, so she went to the ladies’ room. I hate that it’s come to this. Yeah, me too. But I am gonna do everything in my power to show sasha that she has the strength and that I have faith that she can get through this. What? What? Can’t a mother admire her son? Brando, you’ve become such a good man. I know we’ve had our differences — yeah, that’s one way of putting it.

[ Chuckles ] I know. I… handled a lot of things badly.

[ Sighs ] But despite my mistakes, you overcame your struggles and grew into this big-hearted man who not only looks out for his wayward mother, but all the people you care about.

[ Voice breaking ] I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you when you needed the support you’re giving sasha. And I’m so grateful to you for letting me back into your life and letting me be part of the family that you’re building.

[ Chuckles ] And I’m just so damn proud of you. I’m proud of you, too, mom.

[ Sighs ] And, listen, the past — that’s the past. I really appreciate you stepping up for sasha. I mean, you helped get us through our darkest times. I’m so glad you’re in our lives.

[ Sighs ]

[ Mouths words ] I love you, mom.

[ Whispering ] I love you. Sonny: Sasha? Hi. Brando, he, uh, told me about the guardianship. How you feeling about that? I, um, I can’t even describe it. It’s — I love brando, and I trust him. But I feel like an intruder in my own life. You know, your circumstances are — are different than mine, but I gotta tell you something — I’ve felt that before. I get it. You just gotta be — you gotta be strong. You gotta believe in yourself. You know [Sighs] Brando came into my life… …late. But he’s — he’s — he’s family, you know? And if he’s family, that means you’re family. And I want to let you know that if you need anything ever in your life… …I’m here for you. Thanks, sonny. Well, it looks like she got some [Laughs] — A lot of desserts and stuff, right?

[ Laughs ] You want some? Let’s do it. All right. Yeah, I hear what you’re saying. You talking about giving people — giving people time, not pushing them too fast. It’s just hard to know. Like, are you giving somebody time to figure things out, or… are you waiting too long? Like, what if you miss out on something amazing? I don’t know. I don’t know. If something’s meant to be, there’s always a sign. Mm. Hell, I’m glad I was finally able to see my sign before it was too late. Late. Man, I gotta bounce. Epiphany should be off by now. Okay. See you around. Yeah, definitely. You can count on that. All right. Okay. Good talking. You, too.

[ Cellphone vibrates ] Um, I’ll make this quick before I lose my nerve.

[ Breathes sharply ] There’s something you need to know. What’s that? I can’t guarantee that nikolas was with me when you were attacked. Why wouldn’t you know that?

[ Monitor beeping ] It’s, uh — it’s complicated. Is it? Did you lie to the cops or not? No. No, no, no. We were together, just not the entire time. Nikolas’ whereabouts can’t be fully accounted for. Were you just going to sit on this? Elizabeth was hoping to gather more information before amending her statement, but she thought you should know now. Although, it does seem like you have more than adequate protection. I just want you to be safe. But I would appreciate if you can give me some time so I can figure out all the facts. Well, it sounds like there’s a lot more to the story. I — I hope you find it. Thank you. Take care. You, too. Feel better. Oh, um, would you send frank in, please? You wanted to see me? Yeah. I need you to do something for me. (Vo) when you live with moderate to severe crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, your day can be full of reminders of your condition. Never knowing.

Infusion and serious allergic reactions can happen during or after treatment. Entyvio may increase risk of infection which can be serious. Although unlikely, a risk of pml, a rare, serious, potentially fatal brain infection cannot be ruled out. Tell your doctor if you have an infection, experience frequent infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. Liver problems can occur with entyvio. In clinical trials, entyvio helped many people achieve long-term relief and remission. Ask your doctor about entyvio.

[ Beeps ] Carly, hey. I’m — I’m sorry I missed your call. I’m here. All right? I’m here whenever you can talk. What? Come on.

[ Rumbling ] Flight attendant:

Attention.

The captain has instructed

all passengers

to secure your loose items

and make sure your seatbelts

are securely fastened.

[ Passengers murmuring ] Flight crew, prepare for

an emergency landing. I’m looking to clarify some test results. Initially, there was a match that was supposedly a close relation, but it disappeared. I’d like to find this person. Woman: We’re not allowed to disclose

our customers’ personal information. This is a procedural question. How is it possible that there was a match and now it’s gone? Is that a glitch in your system? I assure you, a glitch like that wouldn’t happen. Then how did the match disappear? The only reason a match

would disappear

is if the person withdrew their identity from the ancestry database. I’m sorry. Sorry. My patient is now fine and resting comfortably.

[ Sighs ] Still thinking about those divorce papers, right? Something doesn’t feel right. What do you mean?

[ Sighs ] Jordan wouldn’t forget something like that. And the idea that — that — that the police commissioner’s paperwork would be removed or thrown away, I find highly unlikely. Yeah, I see your point. But the question is, why would jordan tell you that if it’s not true? Maybe jordan made sure those papers weren’t filed. -[ Sighs ] -I think that went better than expected. I’m not sure how much time we bought. This partial memory I’ve been having is at the root of everything. I need more information on it and the blackouts before I go to the police. How do you plan on getting to the bottom of things? I think I know what I have to do. Sonny: Tiramisu. I love it! Here you go. Mm-hmm. Thank you. I have no intention of telling your boyfriend or anyone else about our little dumpster-diving adventure. Thank you for understanding. Um, so… so, we’re good?

[ Thunder rumbling ] We’re good, joss.

[ Rumbling continues ]

[ Beeping continues ] Thank you, frank. You can step outside and close the door. I need to have a chat with my husband.

[ Thunder rumbling ] Uh, I need to step out for a second. You gonna be okay? Hurry back, though. Okay. You got it.

[ Chuckles ] Mmm. Cherry?

[ Thunder crashing ]

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

 grandpa, did you see my backwards somersault? I sure did. You were great. Uncle chase taught me. Yeah, and you know who taught me? Your grandpa. I did indeed. You look a little out of practice, son. Maybe violet should give you a few pointers. Ha ha. Hey, just ran into, uh, a buddy of mine. Dad, this is curtis ashford. Uh, curtis, this is my dad, gregory chase. Nice to meet you, curtis. Nice to meet you. Finn has told me all about your club, the savoy. Not that he’s ever taken me there. Not taking you there. Well, feel free to drop by any time as my guests. Drinks will be on me. Finn — finn can fend for himself.

[ Grunts ] What about me?

[ Laughs ] Well, I tell you what. I will open my place at lunchtime. And you can have all the shirley temples you can drink. Yay!

[ Laughter ] All right. Congrats on your engagement, by the way. Finn told me. Oh, the, uh, good old G.H. Grapevine, huh? Portia might have let something slip. You’re getting married? Can I come? I love weddings.

[ Laughter ]

[ Sighs ] Oh, lord, forgive me, but it’s for a good cause. Okay.

[ Exhales deeply ] Stella. Are you looking for me? Ms. Wu.

[ Chuckles ] I’m sorry. We’re closed. The club is always open for me. I’ll have an iced tea, no sugar, while I wait for my guest to join me. We don’t have any iced tea. I’m sure it won’t take you long to make some. Ms. Wu, thank you for meeting with me. I’m, uh, cody bell. Called you earlier. I’m not bleeding, so maybe that’s why you don’t recognize me. I assume you’re not back for another beating.

[ Chuckles ] No, definitely not. Uh, in fact, I have a proposition for you. Thank you for having lunch with me, dad. Thank you for inviting me.

[ Chuckles ] What’s up? Why does everyone always assume that I have an ulterior motive? Fine. I have something to tell you. Let’s hear it. Chase and i are dating. Wow. That’s great. It is? Isn’t it? Of course, it is. I just…

[ Scoffs ] Never mind. Are you happy? What do you think? Brook lynn, if you’re happy, that’s all that matters to me. So, has chase decided on who his manager is? What are you talking about? I’m chase’s manager, just like we planned. Uh-oh. Hey, elizabeth. Hey. What can I do for you? Uh, I need to see the E.R. Intake records for the night ava jerome was stabbed. I need to see if anyone else checked in with similar wounds. You think someone’s running around port charles attacking people? I don’t know. I mean, I doubt it. We didn’t get any other calls at the pcpd, but, uh, just thought I’d double check. Yeah, yeah, sure. Uh, but if no one else was attacked, does this mean that — it would mean that ava wasn’t the victim of a random act of violence. I think her attacker knew her. You have any idea who attacked you? I don’T. Why do I get the feeling you’re not telling me something?

[ Monitor beeping ] Who am I protecting you from, ava? I have no idea. You’re too smart to play dumb with me. Now, frank says you don’t want nikolas to visit. You were staying at the metro court before you got attacked. Obviously, you and nikolas were going through some problems. Do you think he would try to kill you?


What just happened here? You were happy that chase and I are dating. You seemed supportive of the idea of me managing chase’s singing career. So what changed? The other day, when you and leo were looking at all those photographs of eddie maine, I started to remember what it was like to work with your mom, when lois managed me and the band.

[ Chuckles ] It was really tough on our relationship. Mom left you because you chose elq over family. Sound familiar? Then I wish you well. Look, chase and I, we share a common goal, okay? To make him a star and rub linc’s nose in it. Sharing common interests bring people closer. Like when chase and i worked together to protect bailey lou from peter august. That’s when things changed between us. And look, I admit it, at first we couldn’t stand each other. That probably had something to do with me hitting him two or three times. You think? But we got past it. But there still is potential for friction, brook lynn. Okay. Like with all couples. Look, my point is, trying to maintain a romantic relationship while also conducting a business relationship is hard, sometimes impossible. Dad, chase and i make a good team, okay? We can succeed at anything we try. And if you don’t? You know, look, I-if this is a bad time, I can just come back at another time. No, not at all. Why did you want to see me? Um, it’s about curtis… and his engagement to portia. Oh. I hope you’re not angry you weren’t told right away. No, no, I understand. Um, but you and I, we didn’t even speak about the engagement last night. Are you avoiding? No, not at all. I almost witnessed the proposal myself and then got a chance to congratulate curtis and portia. Were those sincere congratulations? How much pain were you hiding? Their engagement was hardly a shock. I mean, they did buy a house together. Still, it had to be difficult. You loved curtis so very much. Curtis has moved on, and I need to do the same. Our marriage has been over for a while, after all. About that… I like my shirley temples with two cherries, not one.

[ Laughs ] Okay. [ Laughs ] Duly noted. Yeah.

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh. Excuse me. Yeah. Hey, n’neka, what’s up? N’neka: Hey, boss. So…ms. Wu is here meeting someone at the club. I told her we’re closed, and she said the club is open for her. Okay, thank you. I’ll be there as soon as I can. I can’t imagine what you could offer that I might want. Well, I’m sure you remember that I am really good at poker. Mm. You fleeced my high rollers, leaving me with very unhappy patrons. As I explained that night, my players come to relax, have a good time, not lose their shirts in a few hands. Right. So your associate worked me over after you got your money back

[Chuckles] And left me with a pathetic $50 — not even enough to feed a horse in oats. Your point? I want in on the next game. You have the $10,000 buy-in? Okay. Hear me out. So you stake me, and I can pay you $15,000 on the back end. I promise I won’t clean anyone out. I’ll just lighten their wallets a little bit, even though your players can afford to lose. Just the one game? Why? Well, I need to ride off into the sunset permanently. Couple bucks in my belt will help set me up in a new place. Don’t you earn a salary working for the quartermaines at their stable? I’ve got a lot of debts that I got to pay off.

[ Exhales deeply ] I’m still broke. There’s no guarantee you’ll win. What if you lose my $15,000 and more?

[ Chuckles ] I won’t lose. No, I’m a sure thing. So what do you say? I wanted to go back in the water and practice my somersault. Please? You be careful, okay? Well, I guess that’s my cue.

[ Laughter ] Let’s go. Come on.

[ Grunts ] You’re getting bigger. I’ll grab an iced tea with you.

[ Sighs ] When you were in first grade, you had the biggest crush on this little girl that sat next to you in class. Gretchen? W-wait. Where is this going? She wouldn’t give you the time of day, and you couldn’t understand why. You thought about her all the time. You did everything you could to get her to pay attention to you. And the look on your face then was just like — the look on my face now. Something going on with elizabeth?

[ Inhales deeply ] I though things had gotten better between you two. The other night at the quartermaine picnic… elizabeth finally admitted she has a problem. No one else with a stab wound came in the night of the picnic. Hmm. All right. Well, thanks for checking. How’s the investigation going? Ah, you know, it’s, uh, early days. It’s too bad that ava couldn’t identify her attacker. Yeah. I mean, we’re still talking to everyone who was at the picnic. Something will come up. And no one suspicious has crossed your radar? Dante: Not as of yet. How about you? Anything of importance from that night that you can remember? Nikolas would never stabbed me. Really? Then why you acting like you think he’s guilty? And if he is, why are you protecting him?

[ Monitor beeping ] A little thing called love. Really? You don’t love anybody but yourself, ava. So much for playing nice. If it wasn’t for avery, you being her mother, I would let you and nikolas just, you know, tear each other to pieces. Please leave. Really? You want me — you want me to, uh, take frank with me? I didn’t think so. You gotta come clean, ava. What happened with esme?


you don’t think I can make chase a star. Brook lynn, I’m just trying to manage your expectations. You know better than anyone that only a small fraction of hopefuls make it in the music business. Thanks for the support, dad. I’m just being realistic. Come on, be honest with yourself. The things that you like about chase as a boyfriend may drive you crazy as his manager, or drive him crazy as your client. Just saying. Well, that worked out for the best, didn’t it? You’ll have a gig in no time. Brook lynn, you went way too far tonight.

[ Sighs ]

[ Singsong voice ] Violet’s got a crush. No, I don’T.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Normal voice ] I saw the way you were just looking at him getting out of the pool. I don’t have a crush on tommy richardson. He’s not my boyfriend.

Violet and tommy sitting in a tree

k-I-s-s who are you sitting in a tree with, uncle chase? Who is your girlfriend?

[ Chuckles ] Finn: It’s been hard. I just — I hate seeing elizabeth suffering. But she’s opened up to you, right? She thinks there’s something in her past that’s adversely affecting her and… she’s asked for some help. That’s progress.She’s not going alone anymore. I just — I wish I knew how to help her, dad. If you need to talk, here I am. Thank you. I — I appreciate you. What about elizabeth? I mean, besides you, she has a ton of family and friends. So she has a great support system, yeah? Yeah, she does. Although, I’m not sure everyone in her life has her best interests at heart. Was there anything you forgot to mention when jordan took your statement? No. Sorry. I have nothing else to add. Is the pcpd any closer to finding my wife’s attacker? The investigation is ongoing. Thanks, elizabeth.

[ Scoffs ] What? Why we need to talk… in private. How about it? Will you give me a seat at the table? Okay, fine. I’ll let you in the game, provided you work for me. What does that mean? You talk like you can control the game’s outcome. Can you ensure that another player wins big, too? Sure. I mean, as long as they’re not completely hopeless at poker. I’ll stake your buy-in if you follow my orders. You’re allowed to win, but I may ask you to help or hinder another player along the way. Losing your nerve? We’re not just talking about one game anymore, are we? You might want to reconsider your desire to leave town, at least for now. You’ll be making more than you ever dreamed of.

[ Exhales deeply ] Maybe so. I’m not crazy about taking orders from anyone, though. Think it over. But don’t take too long. I’m not known for my patience. I realized how hard I was on you at first. So bullheaded, I refused to attend your wedding to curtis. But you did come. And that meant so much to the both of us. After that, I was team jordan all the way. You refused to give up on our marriage, even when curtis and i separated.

[ Sighs ] Unfortunately, it was already too late. I kept too much hidden from him, and I couldn’t walk it back. You two were so good together. Except when we weren’T. But why are you bringing this up now? Are you opposed to curtis’ engagement? I thought you liked portia. Oh, I-I do. I do. But — but…

[ Inhales deeply ] It’s not about portia. It’s about me. What I did. How sorry I am. Stella, what did you do? Why are you asking about esme? She’s gone, isn’t she? To europe. Isn’t that what the cops are saying? Come on, ava. You know more about esme’s disappearance than the cops. Now you’re a mind reader, huh? Is that more lucrative than selling coffee… among other things? Well, you know what? I remember when you came to me and you wanted me to make sure that, uh, trina’s jurors found her not guilty. I said, “it makes more sense if I — if I talk to esme.” And you said, “no, no, no. Your guys aren’t gonna be able to find her.” So when you were in surgery… and we all thought you weren’t gonna make it, nikolas was a little strange. Strange how?

[ Whispers ] Like he was hiding something. That’s funny. ‘Cause — ’cause I heard that nikolas was frantic, that he was the picture of a devoted husband. We both know better than that. The world is full of make or break moments. Especially if you have postmenopausal osteoporosis and a high risk for fracture, it’s time to make your move to help reduce your risk of fracture with prolia. Only prolia is proven to help strengthen and protect bones from fracture with 1 shot every 6 months. Do not take prolia if you have low blood calcium, are pregnant, are allergic to it, or take xgeva. Serious allergic reactions like low blood pressure, trouble breathing, throat tightness, face, lip or tongue swelling, rash, itching or hives have happened. Tell your doctor about dental problems, as severe jaw bone problems may happen or new or unusual pain in your hip, groin, or thigh, as unusual thigh bone fractures have occurred. Speak to your doctor before stopping, skipping or delaying prolia, as spine and other bone fractures have occurred. Prolia can cause serious side effects, like low blood calcium, serious infections, which could need hospitalization, skin problems, and severe bone, joint, or muscle pain. Don’t wait for a break. Call your doctor now and ask how prolia can help you. Frustrated with occasional digestive upsets? Align women’s probiotic naturally helps promote a balanced gut and soothe occasional digestive upsets. Plus, it supports vaginal health. It’s recommended by gastroenterologists two-times more than any other probiotic brand. Try align. Finally. I told you I was on the clock, man. What’s so urgent? Why is your boss out to get me? Remember when I had that last stroke and I — I felt like I had forgotten something that was really important? Vaguely. Isn’t that common among stroke victims? Yeah, it is. But I finally remembered what it was, what was bothering me. And I am so sorry. I — you’d think by now I would have learned my lesson. But there’s no fool like an old fool. W-what did you do, stella? I meddled in your personal business — yours and curtis’. How? Happened right here in this office. I took the envelope that contained your signed divorce papers. They were never filed. You and curtis are still married. Thank you. That didn’t take you long. I saw your bartender call you. What are you doing here, and who did you have a meeting with? My meeting is none of your business. I stayed because I want to deliver a gift. Oh, that you’re gonna take your poker game somewhere else.

[ Laughs ] You have a wonderful sense of humor, curtis. No. This gift is my way of thanking you for the continued use of the savoy. I’m upgrading the club’s audio board. Not necessary. Your live music nights are very successful. An advanced audio system can only enhance your customers’ experience. Have you thought about focusing more on local artists? I’ve been hearing about a singer. You know what? You can stop right there. Ms. Wu, need I remind you that the savoy is my business, not yours. Mr. Quartermaine. Hey, chase. Is, uh, brook lynn here? I texted her that I was coming over. Yeah, she is here. I’m sure she’ll be back soon. Um… would you like some iced tea? I’m — I’m good. Thanks. And thanks again for helping me find the right look for… me being a professional singer.

[ Chuckles ] So, brook lynn tells me that, uh, you two are a couple now. Yeah. Is this the part where you tell me if I hurt your daughter — I hurt you? Yeah. I’m thinking about it. Like, I promise, I — I only want to make brook lynn happy. Mm-hmm. You know, it’s not always possible in relationships. But brook lynn is an adult, and I’ve never been able to keep her under glass. But I will hurt you very badly if you ever hurt her, in addition to what she will do to you. I-I know better than to cross brook lynn. If I’ve learned one thing, she can be ruthless. Elizabeth is friends with this guy — nikolas cassadine. They were together years ago. Sounds like you don’t trust the guy. Did their relationship end badly? Think he wants to hurt her? No. No. But he’s the reason hayden left town. Kind of guy that’s always in it for himself first and doesn’t care if the people around him get hurt. There’s a chunk of time I can’t account for after I left finn and before you found me — possibly the time when ava was attacked.

[ Scoffs ] I don’t believe for one second that you’re the one that stabbed ava.

[ Sighs ] Okay, so then when you lied to jordan about being with me, was that to protect me… or you? Ava: Nikolas couldn’t have stabbed me. He was with elizabeth at the time. That’s what he told the police. Well, I’m sure they confirmed his alibi with elizabeth. Yeah. Nikolas and elizabeth have been friends since they were teenagers. You really believe that pure-as-the-driven-snow elizabeth baldwin would lie to the cops to protect nikolas? Well, elizabeth is loyal to her friends. She thinks the best of everybody. But, you know, now that we establish that, you know, she could cover for nikolas, why do you think he stabbed you? Come on. Something happened with esme.


Chase, hi. What are you doing here? I texted you I was coming over. Oh, you did? Really? Oh, not that it matters. I can come back another time if it’s more convenient. Actually, chase, I’d like to continue our discussion. So brook lynn told me that she’s now officially your manager. Dad. You know, there’s a hell of a lot of pressure involved with getting a music career off the ground. I mean, it could lead to a lot of arguments. Don’t you have somewhere else to be? I suppose I’m not telling you anything that you don’t already know. It’s good to see you, chase. And I am sure brook lynn will take very good care of you. Alone at last. Yeah. Is your dad, right? Are you gonna take good care of me? Oh, you can count on it. I will. I hope he didn’t get in your head. No, he didn’T. Although, I have been thinking the same thing about what the music business can do to relationships. Oh, no. Magazines are right. Women end up dating their fathers. Okay. [ Chuckles ] First, be serious. I’m being serious.

[ Clears throat ] Okay. And second, now that we’re dating… do you think going after linc is still worth it? My boss commissioner ashford? No. Mac scorpio. He’s chief of detectives, right? Yeah. What about mac? Well, he’s asking a lot of questions about me, treating me like a suspect in this attack at the quartermaines’. Mac thinks you stabbed ava jerome? Never even met her. But, you know [Chuckles] Rich people, they always blame the help. I’m working that case. Mac hasn’t said anything to me about bringing you in for questioning. No, he didn’t talk to me directly. But he asked britt a whole bunch of questions, which is ridiculous ’cause we’ve only been on one date, you know? Picnic didn’t count. All right, okay. Hold — hold on. Britt said mac thinks you’re a suspect? Well, she said that he asked her a bunch of questions. It’s — it’s pretty easy to fill in the blanks, you know? Media’s been all over this attack on the ava jerome woman and [Sighs]… Is your boss trying to pin it on me so he can say that he solved it? No. No, mac wouldn’t do that. I’m being paranoid? Depends. Have you done anything that would be considered illegal? No, no. Hell, no. All right. Okay. That doesn’t seem defensive at all. Okay, well, I’m the new guy in town, right? People tend to blame the outsider as soon as something bad happens. Okay, look. I’m here telling you relax. Mac’s gonna follow the evidence. That’s all he’s gonna do. I don’t want any more trouble with the police, man, had enough already. Well, that proves my point exactly. Back then, you were guilty. I wasn’t the only one. I would never presume to tell you how to run your business. I just want to lend a helping hand. Why? I’m invested in the savoy’s success. My players have grown fond of the club. They feel safe and comfortable here. Why your sudden interest in music? Selina: Has curtis given you any trouble? Nah, just a misunderstanding. I, uh, ran into a singer — harrison chase. You heard of him? The detective on suspension. Yeah, uh, good singer, good guy. I thought he’d be a good fit for the savoy. I appreciate you thinking of us and making the connection. I’m sure curtis will, too. I know what I like. Harrison chase brought the house down when he played at open mic night on the haunted star. I booked harrison chase. His contact canceled and said that he was no longer chase’s manager. Would you be willing to rebook mr. Chase? Why do you care? I know a thing or two about business and how to keep one profitable.

[ Sighs ] Harrison chase could be your big discovery and give the club the reputation of spotlighting new talent. Think about it. Yeah, uh, jermaine, did you find it? What? You really think that I stabbed ava? Nikolas… no, no, I don’t — I don’t want to think that. But then why were you so quick to give us a false alibi? How can we be sure it was false? The police don’t know the exact time of ava’s attack. Maybe it was when you and I were together. Then why didn’t you just say that? Come on. You’ve been acting very suspiciously. Have I? Elizabeth, what have I done since ava was attacked? I protected you. I’ve worried myself sick whether my wife was gonna live or die. I mean… I have been nothing but frustrated and concerned because the person who attacked ava is still out there. And I feel damn helpless because there isn’t anything I can do to try to catch him. And instead of understanding, you’re gonna think the worst of me? Is that — is that because… what you’re going through so much lately? Because your nerves are frail. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a minute. Are you saying that I’m imagining your sneaky behavior? You know, if elizabeth had a — a known infection, I would track it down, I would identify it, and then I would design a protocol to treat it. Like you did with harry. Yeah. But this psychology thing, dad, I… I’ve made a real mess of it at times, you know? And please, please don’t tell me some story about when I was 5 and I went through every encyclopedia in the house trying to find a cure for the common cold. Why would I tell you that story? Yeah, to remind me that I have this way, that I always have to try to find the right answer. I will tell you what I told you then. You have to learn to read before you tackle the encyclopedia. So, in other words, don’t rush. I’d imagine there’s a reason why elizabeth repressed her memories. She can’t work through them until she’s truly ready to face what they are. Esme was a manipulative, spiteful, little viper that nikolas let into our home without consulting me. And she did everything she could to come between us. Even spencer saw her true colors. But nikolas is so stupid. Keep going ’cause it’s really interesting. Uh, but nikolas was stupid. Stupid ’cause he’s a man… like you. Like you with carly — alienating her and your family. Okay, this isn’t — this isn’t about me. It’s about you, nikolas, and esme. Something’s going on with esme. Why are you and nikolas covering it up? And why haven’t you told the cops that you think it was your husband who attacked you?


ah. I’m sorry. I shouldn’thave brought that up. You did me a solid back then. No reason to mess up both of our lives. Put all that behind you, though? 100%. Cops don’t like me. Never have. [ Chuckles ] Never will. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey, hey. I’m a cop. All right, true. Okay, other cops have an aversion to me. Well, you know, uh, mac scorpio’s one of the fairest cops, fairest people, I know. And he was a friend of dominique stanton’s when she was in portugal. Yeah, yeah. So he told me. So maybe that’s why he’s got interest in you.

[ Sighs ] Maybe. Still, might be time for me to move on. Yeah? And you really think you’re ready to go? The divorce was never finalized… because of you? I just wanted to give you and curtis a chance to work things out. It was an unconscionable act of hubris. You had no right to play god with our marriage! What happened to the divorce papers? I don’t know.

[ Sighs ] I suffered the stroke at kelly’s and everything after that is — is still a blank.

[ Scoffs ] This is unbelievable. You are unbelievable! I know. I — and I realize there are not enough apologies in the world to make this right. I would have never let it go this far. But I lost track. I lost memory of — of taking the envelope from your desk. And then after…

[ Sighs ] …Hearing about curtis’ engagement to portia, some of it came back. Does curtis know? No.

[ Sighs ] I wanted you to know first. And…

[ Sighs ] …If sometime in the future, if you could just find it in your heart to forgive me — but, jordan, I understand if you can’T.

[ Knock on door ] I’m in the middle of something. Can it wait? I am sorry to interrupt, but it’s important. Auntie stella, what are you doing here? Don’t act like I’m the crazy one when I know you’re hiding something. I don’t think you’re crazy, but I do think you’re overreacting. Okay. All right, maybe — maybe I am. I don’t know. Maybe I am just crazy. You wouldn’t be the first one to think so. What are you — what are you talking about? I thought when you signed out of shadybrook everything was okay. Nikolas, something is happening to me. I can’t explain it, but my life is out of control right now.

[ Sighs ] How can I help? It will be okay. I promise. Did I hear what I think I just heard? Now that we’re dating, you want to back out of our deal? No, I’m not backing out. I’m just asking the question. Brook lynn, you and I could have something really great, but you working as my manager didn’t get off to a great start. What do you mean? When you asked sonny to use his influence to book me at the savoy. Well, I thought we got past that. We did. But I know you. And I know we’re not always gonna see eye to eye. Oh, so any friction that’s between us will be my fault? No, no, no. It’s — it’s — um… [ Sighs ] It’s just, I don’t want to do anything that could jeopardize our relationship. So maybe we should just drop this plan to get revenge on linc.


Okay. So, you’ve got concerns. Our romantic relationship is new. We don’t want to do anything to mess it up. We sure don’T. But you’re being an idiot. What? Just because we’re kissing doesn’t mean we can’t get past an argument or two. Chase, it’s not a myth. We can have it all, and we will. Okay, brook lynn…

[ Chuckles ] …I want you to be honest with me. Do you really think we can make linc look bad without letting revenge destroy us as a couple? Of course! Look, neither of us are fragile flowers, and we’ve got a bond that can’t be broken. Certainly not over a dirt bag like linc. Gotta love your passion. I mean, I love my job at the quartermaines’. And, you know, it’s been great getting to reconnect with you, make new friends, even if [Chuckles] Some of them are driving me crazy. So honestly, nah. I’m not ready to leave port charles. Yeah, it’s good. You want me to stay? Yeah, man. It’s been good reconnecting with you, too, even if I have had to arrest you a few times.

[ Laughs ] Well, I’ll try and behave from now on. Yeah, well, I will hold you to that.

[ Scoffs ] Meanwhile, I gotta get back to work. But, uh… listen, I promise you I won’t let you take the fall for the attack on ava jerome. I have faith in you, bro.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone rings ] Hello? Yeah, ms. Wu, it’s, uh, cody bell. Do you have an answer for me, mr. Bell? I could use some extra cash. This means you’ll be my ringer in the poker games? Deal me in. I need a reason to visit jordan? She’s still family.

[ Scoffs ] What brings you barreling through my door, curtis? I just got off the phone with my attorney. Apparently, there’s no record of our divorce. How does something like that happen? You think it’s easy wondering if nikolas attacked me, that I enjoy having so little faith in him? Here’s the deal, ava. I-I’m not gonna allow… for avery to lose her mother.

[ Monitor beeping ] If I find out that nikolas stabbed you, I’m not gonna let that stand. Oh, I’m not gonna let nikolas get away with hurting me. I promise you that. I should get going. Okay. Finn. Finn: Nik. I’ll talk to you soon. Yeah.

[ Door closes ] You okay? I totally lost my cool with him. Was he being an ass? No, I was. I asked him why he lied to jordan about us being together when ava was attacked, and he insisted that he was just trying to help me out. But…? But I can’t shake this feeling that there’s more going on. How does that make you an ass? I’ve known nikolas for a long time, and I know when he’s hiding something. You didn’t accuse him of attacking ava? I came close, even though I don’t really think he did it. And then I-I… totally overreacted when I thought he was calling me crazy. Elizabeth, you’re not crazy. Thanks. But we both know something is happening to me. I’m losing time. And I think I have to tell the police that I don’t know if nikolas and I were together at the time of ava’s attack.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

why is mac so interested in you? Your guess is as good as mine. Okay. If that’s your story, stick to it. What? What? You don’t believe me? Why should I? I barely know who you are! I need to learn more about this guy before potentially blowing his world apart and letting him know that I could be his dad. Well, then do some research into his life, his background. And if you need some help, you have my P.I. Skills at your disposal. It might be better to forget the whole thing. Can you do that? Come on, mac. Just do the research. And if it turns out that cody is not your son, I mean, at least you know. I don’t need to know. As far as I’m concerned, whoever cody bell really is can remain a mystery. Forever.

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh. Hang on one second. Okay. Yeah. Hello? Connor. Yeah, what’s up, man? You guys miss me already or what? Say that again. Jordan: I need you to process the prisoners awaiting transport to pentonville. No problem, commissioner. There is one you’re familiar with. I need your assurance that you can maintain your professional distance. Yes, ma’am. Mr. Cassadine. Officer cabrera will take it from here.

[ Door closes ] Nikolas: What do you mean I’m not on the list? That’s my wife in there. Those are my orders. Well, your orders have nothing to do with me. Sonny may be your boss, but he’s not mine. Actually, mr. Corinthos did not suggest that you cannot go in. Ms. Jerome did.

[ Chuckles ] Nice of you to join me. Join you? I’m the one who called the meeting. You did. And, yet, you are — oh, no — now 6 minutes late. Okay. Let me cut to the chase. You’ve made a lot of messes, victor. I want to know how you’re gonna clean it up.


You’ve caused nothing but trouble since you’ve come back to town — my town. It would really help me if you could be a little more specific. See, everyone thinks I leave a path of destruction everywhere I go, yet no one seems to come up with any evidence to support that notion. That’s because you’re good at covering your tracks. That makes two of us. There’s a difference between us. I don’t let my family go down for crimes I committed. Just your employees and best friends. What are you gonna do for spencer now that he’s going to prison to protect you, victor? Don’t you worry, sonny. I can protect my family. Like you protected ava? Are you saying that ava asked you to keep me out? Yes. Maybe ava’s not up for visitors. Why don’t we go get a coffee and maybe try back later? Oh, you can go right in, miss robinson. She’s expecting you.

[ Exhales sharply ] Uh, trina, will you please tell my wife that I’m gonna see spencer off to pentonville? Yes. Of course. Hopefully by then, she’ll have reconsidered. Put your personal effects into the envelope… anything of value you want kept here. You can take your chances with intake at pentonville, but items often go missing. Thanks, but this isn’t my first rodeo. Well, this is different. Coming from a famous, wealthy family helped you at spring ridge, but in pentonville, it can make you a target. I talked to my C.O. Buddy. He’ll see what he can do about getting you a work detail in the library. Thank you. But I can take care of myself. I hope that’s true. Not just for your sake… but for people who care about you. Ahh. Ahh! Trina! Oh, I’m so happy to see you. Oh, my gosh. I thought I almost lost you. What?! Never! No. I’ll always be here for you, trina, no matter what. Uh, yeah. Thanks, connor. I’ll be in touch. Everything okay? That was my neighbor. I guess his brother was visiting, and he saw the moving truck outside. He wants to put an offer on my house. Ooh! A good offer? Yeah. Like 20 grand over whatever market value is. That’s good. You wouldn’t even have to list it. I mean, that’s great, isn’t it? Yeah. No, it is. I just — honestly, I hadn’t even thought about putting it on the market yet. Oh, no? Why? You keeping your options open? Oh. Oh, no. No. I am all-in. But that is the house I shared with lulu. Oh, it must be weird thinking that if you do sell it, other people will live in there. It’s not even that. It just feels like it’s a decision… you know, I should be making, you know, consulting with her. Yeah, and it’s a huge decision. And once you decide to sell, it’s final. Right. It’s a good thing that you don’t have to decide tonight. Think about it? Sleep on it? Okay? That’s an excellent idea. Okay. Wait. I have — I have one more… oh, my gosh. What is it? …Favor. It’s not gonna be that hard, but… will you top me up, mister? Oh, yeah. Why don’t you want to know if cody is your son? After all these years, what difference would it make? It makes a huge difference for both of you! And just because cody is an adult doesn’t mean he’s not entitled to the truth. And this is your chance, mac, to, you know, have a child with your very own dna. You are more than enough for me. Oh, mac, I’m sure most of the time, I was too much. I mean, you’ve been such a great father to me and georgie. There isn’t a second that goes by that we’re not all grateful for that. So, you know, if cody is your son, I’m okay with it. I’m not gonna feel threatened. Can we just drop the subject?! We just want to make sure this is really how you feel. It is. I still want to know why. If cody is my son with dominique, just knowing that might be too high a price. Price? W-what are you talking about? I’m talking about what it could do to our family. Okay, so what was this mac guy asking you about me? General stuff. How we met, your movements at the party. My — my movements at the — w-why was he asking that? Probably to eliminate you as a suspect. He has to account for everyone’s whereabouts at the time ava was attacked. Fine. So you just told him I was with you, right? I’m not sure it came up. I probably forgot. Yeah. You forgot. You kissed me.

[ Laughs ]

You kissed me! Okay. Fine. You know what? Whatever. It’s just my luck. Every time a stranger comes to a new town, they get accused of murder. Has this happened to you before?


Answer the question, claire! How many murder investigations have you been questioned in? Britt, I have been a lot of things in my life. A skydiver, stuntman, stable hand. Hustler. Card shark. Yeah, well, one thing I am not is a cold-blooded killer. You know that, right? I wouldn’t be standing here if I thought you were. Think I need a lawyer? I don’t know. You know how expensive lawyers are? I do. On a stable hand’s salary? Maybe it’s time to pull up stakes and just get out of dodge. It — yeah. Maybe it is, if you have something to hide. I don’t understand, mac. What risk could cody possibly pose to our family? Okay. I have an appointment I need to get to. This is for you. Okay. Mom, thank you so much for babysitting. I appreciate it. Okay. Mac. Mac, honey, what are you so afraid of? I don’t know. Change? Felicia, I love the life we’ve built together. And it wasn’t easy. Oh, yeah, I know. After everything, losing georgie and nathan, gaining three beautiful grandchildren. We have endured so much. I finally feel like we have a little bit of peace. I just don’t want anything to disrupt it. Well, you know, life is change. And I wouldn’t begrudge you the opportunity to be there for cody if he turns out to be your son.

[ Sighs ] Well… at least we won’t be strapped with dirty diapers and those awkward conversations of adolescence. Oh, there’ll be plenty of awkward conversations. But just like you loved georgie and maxie just like your own, I don’t need blood ties to cody to welcome him into our family. Rory: You can hand over your phone now or just before prison transport leaves. I’ll hang onto it. Thanks. No problem. Just be sure to memorize your point of contact’s number and leave your attorney’s info with that person. It was my grandmother before, but she’s out of town. Pick a new one. Your grandmother’s husband maybe? Yeah, maybe. Spencer, when I walked in on you and trina at her party, I got the sense that, uh, you weren’t really finished, that there were things you both still needed to say. You’re mistaken. Trina and I are done, and we’re both moving on. So you have nothing to worry about. I’m not worried. I just don’t want you haunting us from prison.

[ Door closes ] Did you have any trouble getting in to see me? Uh, frank let me come right in. Great. I’m glad that you have protection, but I hate that you’re still in danger. That makes two of us. What did the police say? Do they have any idea who could have done this to you? Police are following leads. They’re — they’re ruling people out. As for me, I have some thoughts of my own. Who? Oh. You know what? Never mind. Just forget it. It turns out my personal prime suspect has an alibi and couldn’t have done it. So, um, I saw mr. Cassadine when I arrived, and frank wouldn’t let him in. Ava, you don’t have to tell me, but… why don’t you want your husband to come and visit you? Tell ballistics I need a hard copy added to the file. I want to see my son. Mr. Cassadine. Glad you stopped by. I have a few follow-up questions for you about your wife’s attack. I don’t see what help I can be. You already know I was with elizabeth at the time. Yes, I know you couldn’t have physically carried out the crime. What are you implying? I’d rather not imply anything. I just need facts so I can get closer to what happened and who’s responsible.

[ Sighs ] Okay. After I see my son. Where’s spencer? You know, most spouses in your position would be more cooperative. And I’m happy to cooperate after I see my son. Spencer’s in interrogation. Feel free to go in. Thank you. But before you go… be sure to leave your information with the desk sergeant so they can arrange a interview. You’ll want to have your lawyer present. Ava has a lot of enemies with threats coming at her from every corner. It’s almost impossible to keep her fully protected. Maybe somebody was targeting her that’s close to home. Just what are you insinuating? Everything copacetic between nikolas and ava? It’s a little volatile at times, I grant you. But nikolas and ava love each other fiercely. If you think nikolas could ever… my nephew is completely devoted to his wife. Really? Uh, so devoted that ava, uh, was staying at the metro court? ‘Cause I dropped avery off the other day, and I was surprised to see that, uh, ava was there. Maybe she was just tired of staying with — with esme. But that didn’t make any sense because esme’s gone. She’s vanished. Do you know anything about that, victor? I could ask you the same. After all, you snatched esme off the street. Okay. Let me tell you something right now! If I find out that you or nikolas had anything to do with hurting ava… …you’re gonna answer to me.


Be adversaries, surely. After all, we share family, as well as vision. Does anybody in your family actually talk to you? Does anyone in yours? I answered your summons. I’ve tolerated your baseless insinuations. Cast aspersions on my family again, and I’ll cease being a gentleman.

[ Sighs ] Alright, victor. Stay away from avery’s mother. And don’t let me have to call you again. Old pal. Ava: You know me and nikolas. When we’re getting along, it’s magic. When we’re not, it’s a curse!

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. But enough about me. I want to hear about you. How are you enjoying your vindication? Well, for starters, pcu reinstated me as a student. Ahh! That’s great news. Oh, good. I’m so happy for you. Thank you. I felt guilty meeting with the pcu administration while you were here in the hospital. What? Oh, no, sweetie. No. There’s nothing that you could have done for me. I’m happy that you’re taking care of yourself. I just thought you’d be one of the first people to celebrate my returning to school. Oh, damn straight, I would.

[ Both laugh ] And my parents did throw me a party. Oh. Well. I hate to miss a good party. How was it? Fun… that didn’t sound very convincing. What happened? An unexpected guest showed up. Get out! I know you hate me. When did you figure that out? Before or after you slept with my girlfriend?! Spencer, please give me five minutes. Was I unclear when last we spoke?! We are done! You are about to go to prison, and I am terrified! I do not care. I do not care. If you do not get out of here in the next 10 seconds, I will march out there and I will tell commissioner ashford exactly what you and ava were arguing about at the picnic. Uh, hey, let me know if you come across rocco’s gaming console. T-that would be the key to peace and happiness in this house. Okay, didn’t cody buy him some horse-race game when he was staying with you? Yeah. Yeah. He did. Those things are expensive. Well, he’s a pretty generous guy. Seems to be. Hey. What do you think sonny was talking to cody about? Who knows. Cody seems to take chances sometimes. But I don’t know. He seems like a pretty harmless guy, yeah? Yeah. You know, looks can be deceiving. What’s that supposed to mean? Nothing. Just, you know, like I’ve told you. When we were kids, he didn’t like to follow the rules. Yeah, but that’s when you were kids. Mm-hmm. And that was a long time ago.

[ Chuckles ] That’s true. People do a lot of living from adolescence up to being a grown-up. Oh, don’t I know it. I’ve done a lot of things that I regret. And I’m sure, back in the day, yes, cody played some tricks on some camp counselors, but that doesn’t mean that he’s up to something now. Hm. I’m human. We all have something to hide. I’m sure you have plenty. I used to. Mm-hmm. But all the bad, wicked criminal stuff, it all came out. I’m practically an open book. I bet there’s something. There isn’T. Anyway, this is about you. And, I mean, come on. “I can’t afford a lawyer. I got to leave town.” Overreaction much?

[ Mockingly ] Well, I wouldn’t have had to consider leaving town if you had given me an alibi. Oh, sorry. I only provide alibis after the third date. And since we’ve only been out once [Clicks tongue] You know, you’re right. You owe me nothing. See ya. Wait. You’d really just… up and leave port charles? Do you not want me to leave town? Oh, I mean, your buddy dante will probably be relieved that you escaped “the britch.” As for me, you know, I-I’m good either way. I think you’d miss me. For several minutes. A few, maybe. “Several” is pushing it.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Possibly I overreacted. It’s just… ever since I was a kid, I’ve been operating on fight-or-flight mode. Then why not stay and fight? You want me to fight?

[ Chuckles ] As long as you don’t sucker punch mac like you did scott. I make no promises. It sounds like that guy deserves it. What did you just say?


Hear you threaten my stepdad? Hey, maxie, we were just — no, britt. I’d like to hear this from cody. Why do you want to hit mac? Cody: From what I’ve been hearing, he thinks I gutted the woman at the picnic. Ava jerome. Yeah. Who, to the best of my knowledge, I’ve never even met. So why would I try and kill her? I can assure you mac does not think you attacked ava. Then why is he asking all these questions about me? ‘Cause he’s the chief of detectives. It’s his job to ask questions. Just answer directly and honestly, and you’ll be fine.

[ Chuckles ] So y-you’re suggesting that I talk to a cop voluntarily?

[ Chuckles ]

[ Sternly ] Yes. Oh, maxie’s right. Just call mac. I’m sure he’ll put your mind at ease. Cops lie. Mac is not a liar! How did you know my mother? Um, well, I didn’t know her very well, but mac… dominique and i were friends. I met her when she was married to your father. Maxie, try to look at it from cody’s perspective.

We know mac is a good guy and that he’s just doing his job. But cody doesn’T. Cody could be leopold’s son. Maybe that’s best for everyone. Not for cody. Everyone deserves a loving, compassionate father. Like me? Like you. I know it’s not scientific, but when you met cody, you saw yourself in him, didn’t you? You see a resemblance? His eyes. Similar twinkle. His is mischievous, while yours is kind. Even if cody is mine, I mean, he’s an adult. How much parenting could he need? How much does maxie still need? Good point. You know, you keep seeing cody as a liability rather than an asset. Besides change, is there another reason why you are resistant to welcoming him into our family? No matter whose son cody really is, he’s a stranger. How do we know what kind of person is? Well, here’s a thought. We get to know him. And not just a person of interest and not necessarily even as a son, but just get to know him as a friend. Maybe I’m setting myself up for disappointment. What if this all goes south? What if it doesn’t? You would implicate me in ava’s attack? As the townies might say… damn straight.

[ Door closes ] You will do no such thing! You will continue to remain silent, spencer. Is that understood? Unless, of course, you’ve already let something slip while three sheets to the wind at that unfortunate party. Don’t worry, uncle victor. I have not sold out my faithless father yet. I haven’t even given him a second thought. How is your wife, nikolas? I hear she’s recovering. Oh, you “hear”? Sonny’s henchman wouldn’t let me in to see her. Is that right? Maybe everyone’s finally onto you. Onto me? Uh-huh. We are not having this discussion here. Whoa, whoa. Yes, we are. Spencer, do you think that I’m the one behind ava’s attack? Because you’re incapable of hurting the people you love? Let’s ask hayden. Alright. That’s it. Enough! Stop this! Right now. Now, listen, I know — I know we are playing on a bit of a sticky wicket right now, but it’s nothing I can’t fix if you two get yourselves together! Jordan: Good job, officer cabrera. You maintained your professional demeanor as you carried out your duties with spencer cassadine. Not an easy task. Thank you, commissioner. Uh, I feel you should know I did talk to him about trina. Well, there was no altercation, no raised voices. It was all very calm. Then it’s fine. Thank you for telling me. Uh, commissioner… at the risk of overstepping… you know trina’s dad very well. Do you have any tips for how I can get on his good side? I almost forgot to tell you. I sold a sculpture to an overseas collector through simone. Hm! Asking price? Of course. You know, maybe we should — we should close the gallery just temporarily. Why? Because I don’t want you spending what’s left of your summer behind a desk. That’s why. I can balance my social life and work at the gallery. Okay. But let me know if it gets to be too much for you. Or even if you just — you need a break, right? I will. Promise me that you won’t be at the gallery alone. Okay? Especially at night. Maybe rory can keep you company if you need to work late? Do you think who did this to you could come for me? I don’t know who, and I don’t know why, so I don’t know what they’re capable of. I think it’s best to take precautions. Okay. I’ll figure something out. Good. But, you know, I didn’t ask you about work. I asked you about your life. Let me guess. This, um, unexpected party guest… it was spencer, wasn’t it? I just don’t get him, ava. He wrote me a letter, then he tried to leave before giving it to me. He dropped it, and then after I picked it up, he wouldn’t even let me read it. Why not? Because he said we weren’t friends. But then he admitted that he still had some sort of connection with me but he’s been lying this entire time. Like, what am I supposed to do with that? Especially now that rory’s in the picture. Alright. I-I’m gonna stop you right there, okay? Okay. I’m sorry. I-I shouldn’t be talking about something so silly when you almost just died. No, no. No. Not because of that. I’m gonna tell you something. Because you only live once and you deserve to know. What is it? Sweetheart, according to spencer, he knew all along that you were innocent. But that doesn’t make any sense. He told me to my face. It was all a ruse. He only stayed with esme to help prove that you were innocent.


Look. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not judging cody for what he did when he was a kid. But that was just me back then. Now I got a family to protect. And that includes you and danny and scout. I appreciate that, but I do consider myself a good judge of character. Oh, yeah? And, yes, cody may be the guy who thinks he can take a walk on the wild side. I do, however, think he is a decent guy. Oh, okay. So you’re saying you like the guy. Yeah, I do. So sue me. Oh, good. But…? But sonny’s not the only one keeping an eye on him. Maxie, I am not trying to offend you, but your stepdad, he’s treating me like a suspect. I’m not just gonna wait around and let the pcpd build a case against me. What part of “that is not what’s happening here” do you not understand? And I’m just supposed to take your word for it? Yes! I gotta go. I’ll talk to you later. I’m starting to think I was wrong. I do not think you should give that guy a second chance. Jordan: Trina’s father? Uh, yes. Mr. Taggert has been pretty distant. Any advice? You’re right. This is overstepping. Uh, sorry, commissioner. But since you asked… just be yourself. Taggert values authenticity. And the buffalo bills. Thank you. Good to know. Someone tried to kill my wife. You’re calling it a “sticky wicket.” I apologize if I sounded glib. I simply meant that there is no hurdle that we as cassadines can’t clear. Even if I hurt my wife, which I didn’t, it’s nothing compared to what you’ve done, uncle victor. I know you’ve had a trying 48 hours, so I’m going to overlook that remark. But I still think you should respect spencer’s wishes and leave right now. Fine. But no matter how many times you push me away, spencer, I will not give up on you. Prison transport’s almost ready. Time to say your goodbyes. Victor: What is it? It’s just, um — I had hoped more people would be here. Spencer carried a torch for you for a long time. Why didn’t he tell me? Because, in his boneheaded way, I think he thought he was protecting you. He figured if he was honest about his feelings then esme would make you suffer even more. And knowing esme, I shudder to think what she might have done. And he told you all of this? In a rare moment of openness. Maybe I’ve been wrong about him. Look, spencer is a spoiled, entitled young man, and I am in no way vouching for him. But he does seem to genuinely care for you. That’s what was in the letter. Probably. He’s reporting to pentonville today! That’s where nikolas is, at the pcpd saying goodbye to spencer. He wanted me to tell you that, by the way. Oh. Thank you. Great. Do you think I should go see spencer? I think you’re the only one who can decide that. But, trina, if you do see spencer, first I think you need to think long and hard about what you want, about what you need. I can’t believe spencer really has feelings for me.

[ Chuckling ] Oh, sweetheart. Of course he does. Anybody with half a brain and working eyes would feel the same. Sweetheart… thoughts, feelings, words, it’s one thing. Action, that’s another thing. Whoever you choose needs to be worthy of you and act in your best interest. Thank you. Will you be okay? Oh, yeah, I’m fine. Just make sure you tell me how this all works out. Okay? Okay.


You know I’ll support any decision you make. Even if you don’t agree with it? It’s not for me to agree or disagree with. If you don’t want to find out whether cody is your son, then don’T. It’s your call. I appreciate that. Of course, I can’t stop maxie from collecting dna samples from you and cody and running them off to the lab. And that would just be like her.

[ Chuckles ] She loves you. She’ll feel compelled to meddle, mac. This all could be a moot point. Cody may not be interested in getting to know me, even if it turns out that i am his father. That’s true. He may not. But how will you know unless you try? I like you around cody. You loosen up a bit. What are you saying? That I’m uptight?

[ Chuckles ] Who? You? You are the guy who billed me for slashing your tires. I only did that ’cause I wanted to see you again. You did? That’s really cute. Yeah, yeah. But I — wait. I-I’m saying that it’s — it’s o-okay to be cautious. Mm-hmm. I just — I kind of like the vibe you have going on with cody. I approve. You do? Do you approve? Yeah. Okay. And that’s very generous of me. Yeah! It is, it is. But maybe it’s actually just because, you know, we moved in together and now you’re worried you’re gonna get sick of me. Oh, you’re right. You know, I’m actually regretting that decision… yeah. …By the second. Right. Mm-hmm. And you just want to make sure you can pawn me off on my friend whenever you need space? Mm-hmm. You know, I think it’s really healthy to have outside friendships. Yeah, it is. You’re right. Mm-hmm. I know. I just like when you say that. You’re right. Oh. You’re right. Can you do me a favor? You’re right. Can you move that box off the couch? Mm-hmm.

[ Chuckles ] What is up with you? You liked cody, like, an hour ago. Yeah, well, that was then. Okay. Yes. Things got heated. Look, britt, you said you wanted for me to look at things from cody’s perspective, so I’m gonna do that. If I were a wandering cowpoke, why would I want to punch the chief of detectives? Oh, please. Like the authorities have never accused you of something you didn’t do. Maxie! I’m thinking. No, no, the authorities always knew what I was up to. They just never had sufficient evidence.

[ Chuckling ] That’s the story of my life. Anyway, if cody’s not a suspect in ava’s stabbing, then what’s the big deal? This will all blow over. I don’t think so. Cody was so defensive just now. He might not have attacked ava, but it’s pretty clear he’s up to no good. Yeah. Hi. It’s cody bell. We met recently, and I clearly did not make a good impression. Can I have a second chance to change your mind about me? Why are we here? Given what we are about to discuss, wouldn’t it be best to meet somewhere private? Privacy is overrated. In private, people tend to raise their voices. Next thing you know, a priceless ming vase is in pieces on the floor. No, here at least we’ll, uh — we’ll be forced to be well-behaved, speak in civilized tones. And if we should break anything, it can easily be put back together again with a dollop of glue. So why don’t you go first? I can’t believe that you and spencer think I’m capable of doing that to ava. Of course you’re capable. Everyone’s capable of anything. But regardless of that, we have bigger problems. Yeah, like my son going to pentonville. Like sonny corinthos asking questions about esme. Sonny: Ava. Hm. Hello. You look better. You’re sounding good. You’re able to say “I love you” to our daughter. That’s a great thing. Thanks for that. And for the security. Knowing that he’s out there, I… can actually feel safe when I close my eyes, so… what are your dreams like? That’s a different story. But thankfully I don’t remember too much of them when I wake up. And the pain meds help with that. Do you have any idea who attacked you? No, I don’T. I just get the — I get this feeling that you’re — there’s something you’re not telling me. Who am i protecting you from, ava? Jordan: Trina. Can we help you? Am I too late? Sorry. You missed him.
