(Trapped in the cave thinking they’re going to die, Sonny and Brenda make love; Jax leads the search to find them; Stefan assures Bobbie that he married her for love; Laura says goodbye to an angry Nikolas.)

Mac: Looks like some kind of letter to lily.

Jax: Let me see.

Mac: Read it out loud. Jason, listen for anything familiar. You guys keep looking.

Jax: What are these numbers?

Mac: Looks like some sort of distribution schedule.

Jason: Well, the person behind the drugs wanted sonny dead. Maybe that was harry, too.

Jax: You don't think he'd do to Brenda what he did to sonny-- shoot her up?

Mac: Just read it. Read it, or I will.

Jax: "Dear lily, you won't understand this. You want me to spare him, but I can't. He has to pay for what he did. You gave him everything, and he threw you away for his...whore. He killed you to be with Brenda. She wore a wire, she wanted him in prison, and you saved him. You shouldn't have. Sonny deserved to die screaming and afraid with Brenda beside him. She won't be brave, lily. She'll beg when she's in the dark, hidden away forever, down deep like you. It's where she belongs for what she did. And sonny's going to watch her die." This goes on forever and ever. What the hell does he mean down in the dark?

Mac: I don't know. Jason, look. Take a look. See if harry mentions anything concrete-- a place, something connected with sonny.

Jax: Never occurred to sonny this maniac was running around loose?

Jason: Harry wasn't crazy when he worked for him.

Brenda: [Panting] You know, of everything that's ever happened in my life... your love was the best. I couldn't let go of it, even when I wanted to. It's the strongest thing in my life.

Sonny: And now, you're going to die because of me, Brenda.

Brenda: You tried to protect me.

Sonny: I saw what I wanted, and I took it. You were this young, wild little girl. I was more trouble than you've ever seen.

[Brenda laughs]

Sonny: And you just had to have me.

Brenda: You asked me out.

Sonny: Yeah, but I warned you first, and I kept on warning you, 'cause I knew it'd be harder for you to stay away.

Brenda: So you played with me.

Sonny: Yeah. Yeah, for about 5 seconds. That's all that took me to know that I want to spend the rest of my life with you. You know, even now, I walk by your billboard, I see some guy staring up, and I think, "this guy's an idiot. What does he know? He doesn't have a clue how beautiful she really is." Not even Jax knows. Only me. And if we had grown old together, when you had lines on your face and gray in your hair, you'd still be the most perfect thing in the world to me.

Brenda: [Sniffles] You know, I can't even picture you old. [Laughs]

[Sonny exhales]

Brenda: Doesn't matter what happens to your face. I'll always look in your eyes and see a little boy, abused and scared, holding all the pain inside. You know, I wanted to be the one person that never did anything to hurt you, and I did.

Sonny: Oh, well, I hurt you, too. Come on. Hey. You know, I mean, the hard part is, I can't take it back. All the fighting, everything, you know, that I said to you...

Brenda: No, it's ok. Doesn't matter. Sonny.

Sonny: No, no, no.

Brenda: You ok?

Sonny: Yeah, I'm all right. I just--I don't... I can't. I don't want to do-- I can't do this anymore. I don't need--I--

Stefan: I'm proud of my name, Barbara. I can trace it back hundreds of years. I would never bestow it lightly, much less out of pity. Nor would I take a woman into my life and Nikolas' because I felt sorry for her. I married you because...I wanted you. In fact, I've wanted you for years.

Bobbie: Years?

Stefan: Yes. It's time you knew the whole truth.

Lesley: [Exhales] I'm packed.

Laura: Good.

Lesley: I think. Maybe you better check.

Laura: All right. In a second, all right?

Lesley: I want to look at the stars. Are the stars different in Switzerland?

Laura: I don't think so. Here, let me help you--

Lesley: No! I can do it.

[Laura chuckles]

[Door shuts]

Laura: She's doing so much better. I'm sure that once we get her to Switzerland--

Luke: She's going to make it all the way back, she is, with you there pulling for her, and the kids. But not me.

Laura: What?

Luke: I'll take you there, and I'll get you settled, and I'll make sure you're safe. But then I have to come back. I have to stay here.

Laura: I don't want to be there without you.

Luke: I know. It's painful to be separated. But honey, we don't have a choice. The DA's office told me that until this Katherine bell thing is all tied up, I have to be available. They've give me just a few days to get you to Europe and get you settled. And then, I got to come back. And there's another reason. I can't leave my sister like this. When Stefan finds out that Lesley's on the way to recovery, he's going to start twitching, and I've got to keep the upper hand.

Laura: Stefan won't try anything. He's finished with us.

Luke: Oh, baby, you don't believe that.

Laura: I want you with me. We have to be together. That was the whole point.

Luke: I know. We will be. But right now, it has to be like this. Don't fight me now.

Lucky: Ahh. What's going on?

Laura: There's been a chance in plans. We're going to Switzerland.

Nikolas: Since when?

Carly: Welcome home. Wow. What a beautiful place.

Katherine: Yeah. A bit over-decorated.

Carly: I think it's gorgeous. I mean, just a little out of season. We had this old neighbor back at home, and she used to leave hers up till Easter.

Katherine: That's how I want to be known-- crazy lady in the wheelchair.

Carly: Not for long.

Katherine: Because the tree's coming down, or because I'm going to walk again?

Carly: Both.

[Doorbell rings]

Carly: Hi. Nurse Shaw: Hello. Ms. Bell.

Katherine: Nurse Shaw. Nurse Shaw: I brought your bag.

Katherine: Good. Could you maybe put it down the hall there in the guest room? I'll be staying there for the time being. Nurse Shaw: Of course.

Carly: And do you want me to get started on the tree?

Katherine: No, that's ok. I think I just want to be alone for a minute and take a breath and realize I'm home.

Carly: Sounds like a plan. So I'll help Dolores. In case you want to call a friend, let them know so far, so good.

Katherine: Thanks.

Carly: Yeah. Just yell if you need me.

Katherine: Yeah. Don't do it.

Stefan: You're right. There is something in me that wants to fix things. You touched it the first time I saw you.

Bobbie: That awful birthday party. I was such a wreck-- crying on my friend's stoop.

Stefan: You were standing under fluorescent lights performing a difficult duty for a friend.

Bobbie: I don't know what you mean.

Stefan: You came to the morgue to identify Lesley Webber's body. Her husband wasn't strong enough. Neither was Amy. So it fell to you. Lesley Webber was your friend. It hurt. But you saw it through. I doubt you remember the morgue attendant. He wore a mask.

Bobbie: That was you?

Stefan: I was standing 4 feet away. I saw you. I saw how brave and compassionate you were. And I never forgot you.

Mac: You heading out of here?

Miranda: Well, those of us who aren't helping are in the way. Look, I know he's being obnoxious, but he's scared, so just try to be patient. And please, keep him safe.

Mac: I'll do my best.

Miranda: Thanks.

[Cell phone rings]

Mac: Scorpio. Yeah. Yeah, I got it. All right. Jason, the cab dropped sonny at main and federal. Does that mean anything to you?

Jason: Maybe. I don't know. Harry keeps saying he's going to do to sonny and Brenda what they did to lily, and how it's not fair that sh-- that she's in the ground. He could mean the caves.

Mike: What, the catacombs?

Jason: Well, no, not the ones by the river north of town. I mean, there's an entrance in this field.

Mac: North?

Jason: North, yeah. Right near main and federal, within a mile or so.

Mac: You're sure harry knows about them?

Jason: Yeah. Sonny does, too.

Jax: Some kind of mob hangout?

Jason: A place they both know, Jax.

Mike: Look, who cares as long as we find them?

Jason: Look, harry is going to know we're coming. The tunnel echoes, so it's easy to keep watch.

Mac: How many entrances?

Jason: One. But when we find him, we can't go anywhere.

Mac: No, not we. Listen, you can go back to the station. You can wait there if you want. But I can't take you to the site.

Jax: The hell you can't. It's my wife, Mac.

Mac: And I've got a hostage situation here, and the man with the gun is obviously unstable. I don't want family and friends hanging around.

Mike: We're going, Mac.

Mac: It's not up for debate. Now where's the field?

Jason: I'll take you.

Mac: You don't know the address?

Jason: Mac, I said I'll take you.

Mike: We're going, Mac. Now, I can't speak for everyone here, but my son's life is on the line, and I have every right to be there.

Mac: All right. All right. But the same rules apply. You do what you're told when you're told. If we're going to get sonny and Brenda out of this alive, I've got to know that you're not going to get in the way. All right. Listen, radio ahead. Tell them we're on our way. I want 2 squad cars and a swat team. Mr. Morgan will show us the way.

Brenda: Better?

Sonny: You know how much I hate you seeing me like this?

Brenda: Sonny, why do you keep on blaming yourself for what your stepfather did to you?

Sonny: Because I let it happen.

Brenda: You were a child. What were you supposed to do?

Sonny: Kill him. I knew where the gun was. I knew how to fire it.

Brenda: Well, if you would have done that, then who knows what would have happened to you? You never would have met me.

Sonny: No. We would have never-- as long as we were alive, it was going to happen between us. Oh, boy.

Brenda: You sure you're ok?

Sonny: Ehh. The...attacks, whatever you want to call them, they wear me out. I could just fall asleep right here.

Brenda: No. I'll sit with you. I don't want you to sleep. You're freaking me out with this dying thing.

Sonny: Yeah.

Brenda: I don't want to lose you yet.

Sonny: You won't. Even in hell, I'll be thinking about you.

Brenda: You're not going to hell.

Sonny: How would you know? You never even go to church.

[Brenda and sonny laugh]

Brenda: 'Cause people who beat up little kids go to hell, not good men who've done some bad things.

Sonny: For almost a year, I wanted to die, but I couldn't kill myself because suicide is a moral sin, and that would hurt too many people. So you know what I did? I drank myself to sleep, and I would pray that I wouldn't wake up in the morning. And now it's finally happening, I'm not ready for it. I'm not ready for it because... I never had a chance to love you like I should have. I never had a chance to thank mike.

Brenda: No, mike knows. He loves you.

Sonny: That's something, huh?

Brenda: Yeah. Love's never wasted.

Sonny: Yeah. Yeah. [Grunts]

Brenda: Wait. [Sighs] Hey.

Sonny: What?

Brenda: It's your ring.

Sonny: [Coughs] Oh, right. When I didn't find it on harry, I thought I'd lost it. Thank you.

Brenda: I wonder how long Jax will wear my ring. You know, we're not even really married. Just in our hearts. You know... the last thing I ever wanted was to hurt him. I wanted so much to love him back the way he loved me.

Sonny: Someone comes into your life and loves you, you don't expect it, you didn't earn it. But they say you're better than you know. Hey, maybe they're right.

Brenda: I hated that lily could give you peace.

Sonny: I hated that Jax made you feel safe.

Brenda: [Chuckles] I almost lost myself so many times in you. I always stopped myself.

Miranda: Hi. I'm looking for Katherine bell.

Katherine: Hi. Come in. This is Carly Roberts. She's my new physical therapist and resident angel. She's helping me recover from the holidays.

Miranda: Well, better late than never. I'm Miranda Jameson.

Carly: Nice to meet you.

Miranda: Hey. So, this is where you live.

Katherine: Well, not recently. How on earth did you find me?

Miranda: Oh, you forget. I've been to this building before.

Katherine: Oh, that's right. So, did you see Jax today?

Miranda: He's busy, which is why I'm here.

Katherine: Oh, I always love being second choice.

Miranda: No, I'm here to make sure that you're ok. I know it can be exhausting and traumatic coming home from the hospital.

Katherine: Well, the first thing I thought was that I wouldn't be able to climb those stairs... and that he won't be visiting me anymore.

Miranda: Did you get a chance to see him before you left the hospital?

Katherine: And I was strong and cool until my heart was so loud, I was sure that he heard it.

Miranda: Well, then what happened?

Katherine: He started to tell me that...

Miranda: Ahem.

Katherine: You know, Carly, the housekeeper can get that later. I don't know why she left it up. Could you do me a favor and look in the kitchen for some tea and maybe some biscotti or something for us?

[Miranda laughs]

Carly: Oh, yeah. Sure.

Katherine: Thanks. Thank you. I don't know what I was thinking.

Miranda: Well, it's not like you said his name or anything.

Katherine: Carly is Tony Jones' girlfriend.

Miranda: And?

Katherine: Tony Jones, Bobbie Cassadine's ex?

Miranda: Oh.

Bobbie: You know, when we thought Laura had died, you told me what you did for Lesley. Why couldn't you tell me the rest then?

Stefan: Because I was afraid of losing you. That day in the morgue, I stayed with Lesley to make sure she was safe. Barbara, how could I be certain that you would believe me? I know it was just one more doubt, one more weapon, for your brother to use.

Bobbie: And why tell me now?

Stefan: Because you're my wife, and I trust you. How could you think I pitied you? You're one of the strongest people I've ever known. I saw it that day at the morgue, and I saw it the night of the party.

Bobbie: Why were you really there?

Stefan: I told you, I came to see Alan Quartermaine. And I also came to see you. And you were the same as I remembered.

Bobbie: [Chuckles] Drunk and crying?

Stefan: No, brave and resilient and even more beautiful. I was attracted to you from the first. And it was inconvenient, to say the least. But then, circumstances changed, and when I saw the opportunity to have you for my own, I took it. And I've never regretted it. I hope you don't.

Bobbie: No, of course not. It's a lot to take in, though.

Stefan: I know. But I needed to tell you. It was my last secret. Now you know everything.

Bobbie: Then so should you. There's one thing I haven't said.

Laura: Hello, Nikolas.

Nikolas: May I come in?

Laura: Yes. Yes, of course. You've already met your grandmother, I understand.

Nikolas: Yeah, for the second time.

Laura: Mother, you really should rest before we go to the airport.

Lesley: Ok. Thank you for the good news.

Nikolas: My pleasure.

Lesley: Go on.

Nikolas: Night.

Lesley: [Sighs]

Lucky: Ok. You can go.

Nikolas: Well, so much for the truce, huh, lucky?

Lucky: No, no, no. Cooperation is not an invitation to visit. You can--

Laura: Lucky, I'd like to speak to Nikolas.

Luke: Lucky.

Laura: What was the good news you gave your grandmother?

Nikolas: My uncle's going to provide her with her medical records.

Laura: And the truce?

Nikolas: The truce was Lucky's idea. We were going to cooperate with each other to help her. However, I did most of the cooperating.

Laura: That was very generous of you.

Nikolas: She's my grandmother. Not that I'll get to know her anytime soon, since you're leaving for Switzerland. May I say good-bye to my sister?

Laura: Yes, of course. I was going to call you and--

Nikolas: Just like you did the night you died?

Laura: She's right upstairs. Let me get her for you.

Lucky: [Sighs] Dad?

Luke: Hmm?

Lucky: You ever think mom will just drop it?

Luke: Probably not.

Lucky: So where are we going?

Luke: Switzerland.

Lucky: That's what mom said for him.

Luke: Well, it's the truth. That's where we're going. That's where you're going. You're going to watch your mother and your sister and your grandmother.

Lucky: Well, what are you doing?

Luke: I'm coming back here.

Brenda: Remember when I told you that I didn't love you? I lied.

Sonny: I know. I know.

Brenda: I love you. It's the only thing of my life I've ever really known. I don't even know whether it's right or wrong, but it's real. I do love you.

Nikolas: Just remember--remember that I love you.

Laura: She will know that, I promise you.

Nikolas: Don't. Every promise you made to me, you broke. Good-bye.

Laura: Nikolas, wait. Nikolas, it's not wrong to love. Please don't be afraid of it.

[Nikolas sighs]

[Door opens]

[Door slams]

Laura: Oh. Hey, come here. [Cries] Oh, my baby.

Bobbie: Even on the night we met--met again, I mean--I looked into your eyes, and I felt that we had some kind of past. But I never felt comfortable saying anything to you, and maybe I should have, because maybe if I would have, we'd have been--

Stefan: No, no, no, Barbara. The mistakes were all mine. I've made more than my share. But marrying you wasn't one of them. You're my wife, Barbara--not out of pity or a desire to rescue you, but because lives do intersect. And it was time for ours to cross again.

Bobbie: Mmm. Maybe you're right. Maybe we're together because we already knew each other.

Stefan: That kind of connection only comes once in a lifetime.

Mac: Jax.

Jax: What? Officer: It's blocked. The cave-in looks recent. There's footsteps leading inside.

Mac: Any idea how it happened? Officer: Some kind of an explosive device.

Jax: A bomb?

Mike: Like lily?

Jax: No.

Mac: Jax...

Jax: She's still alive, Mac.

Sonny: [Exhales] You all right?

Brenda: Yeah.

Sonny: Ahh.

Brenda: I was just thinking about... [Exhales] When we first met.

Sonny: Ah.

Brenda: [Chuckles] At that car dealership. You remember.

[Sonny chuckles]

Brenda: You smiled at me. I knew that I would follow you anywhere.

Sonny: I'm sorry.

Brenda: I'm not. [Grunts]

Sonny: Go to sleep, sweetheart. [Grunts]

Stefan: Oh. Hello, Nikolas. Where have you been?

Nikolas: Saying good-bye to my little sister. The Spencers are moving to Switzerland.

Bobbie: Are you sure?

Nikolas: Well, they discussed it in front of me. Of course, that probably means they're moving to Sri Lanka.

Bobbie: Why?

Nikolas: I don't know. Do you?

Stefan: No. Their latest strategy, I assume. Did Laura ask to see you?

Nikolas: I went there to tell my grandmother that you were going to release her medical records. And Laura let me say good-bye to my little sister. I suppose I should be grateful. Whatever. Good night.

Stefan: Nikolas... Nikolas. God. That woman's capacity to hurt that child never ceases to amaze me.

Bobbie: Well, I'll go talk to him. I think he probably just needs to tell someone how much he's going to miss his baby sister.

Stefan: Thank you, Barbara. [Sighs]

Lucky: So, dad's not going to stay in Switzerland, huh?

Laura: No. Wish it could have been different.

Lucky: So do I.

Laura: We'll be all right, though. I mean, your grandmother's a lot calmer now, and lulu's a great little traveler.

Lucky: Yeah. I know. She's better than me.

[Laura chuckles]

Lucky: I think it's a good thing, though. I'm not going to stay there either, mom.

Jax: Brenda is down there alive. Now, we have to find another way in.

Mac: Jason said there was only one way--

Jax: I don't care what Jason said. He can't tell the difference between murder and loyalty. He'd keep his mouth shut if it killed Brenda and sonny both. Now, there's another way in, and I'm going to find it.

Mac: Listen, I want you to call fire rescue. Have them clear a pathway through this tunnel. Tell them we could have possible survivors.

Jason: I don't think he's dead.

Mike: I mean, come on. Who could live in that?

Jason: Look, if you were in one of the back chambers--they're still alive. Mike, that's what harry wanted. The letter said sonny should suffer, and harry knew--

Mike: Knew? Knew what?

Jason: That sonny doesn't like small places.

Mike: So you think that harry trapped them in there to torture sonny?

Jason: He'd be in the ground like lily, right? In the dark, hidden away?

Mike: You're right. You're right. Mac. Mac. Harry sealed up the entrance to the tunnel on purpose. He buried them alive.

Mac: That's what we're all hoping for, but we don't know for sure.

Mike: Look, that's what the letter meant. They're alive, Mac. You have to get them out.

Mac: Ok. That's what we're going to try to do.

Jax: Brenda! Don't you die on me! No one leaves, remember? Brenda! Brenda! Answer me! Brenda! Are you alive, Brenda? Brenda! Brenda!
