Janet assures her daughter that she will survive this then praises her mothering. Jake suggests that they adopt many children. Janet asks Jake to do what she can't -- be there for her Mandy.

Ryan angrily demands that David tell him where Greenlee is, then makes a deal to leave him alone if Hayward tells him all about his Project Orpheus. David admits he's been experimenting illegally with stem cells, which made it possible for Greenlee to walk again. Griffin arrives with news of Janet's hospital stay for burns and asks David if it's true that Dixie Martin is alive. Ryan stops David from leaving and grabs his cell phone to seek evidence that he was talking with Greenlee. After David leaves his apartment, Ryan assures Griffin that they will get answers because he slipped a GPS tracking chip into Hayward's phone, so they can find Greenlee.

OLTL Recap Written by Jennifer S.

Destiny declares to Shaun and Vivian that she believes she should get an abortion. But Vivian tells her that since she's not going to turn 18 until she's too far along in the pregnancy to get it done, she has to get parental consent from her legal guardians, whom she's recently found out are her grandparents who lied to her about her brother Greg actually being her father. Nobody knows when or if Matthew will recover, and he has no way of knowing that he got Destiny pregnant. He also cannot tell anybody what has been discovered regarding Nate assaulting and putting him in the hospital and the circumstances surrounding that. Nora emotionally tells Bo they must put Nate in a cell for assaulting Matthew and realize there's no reason to absolve him when they've also found out Nate is a porn star. But Bo has talked to Nate who told him how he was blackmailed to do the porn film and that he was angry justifiably at Matthew when he learned Matthew killed Eddie and let him take the rap for it. He knows it was an accident that Matthew wound up in the hospital and not Nate's intent. She does not care when it means that Nate will go free and get to have a future when their son does not. But he tells her that the very reason Nate assaulted Matthew is because Matthew had not yet confessed until it was too late, due to the fact that they told their son not to when they remember he was going to come clean against their wishes. So, Bo concludes if anybody is to blame for what happened to Matthew, it's them and not Nate.
