>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Nikolas: I found the locker.
Lucky: What was in it?
Nikolas: A human skull.
Lucky: That skull is proof of murder.
Alcazar: You have to be eliminated, just like all the other bad memories.
Zander: You're twisted.
Jax: And you put this in a written contract?
Skye: I don't care about E.L.Q. I just -- I love you.
Sonny: The next move is mine.
Jason: He's acting like he has leverage against you.
Sonny: Find out what its.
Nikolas: Thank you for coming so quickly.
Alexis: You found something?
Nikolas: It's pretty bizarre.
Alexis: Everything about this case is bizarre. What is it?
Nikolas: Well, I'm hoping it's something that could get Lucky released.
Nikolas: Alexis, you could call it that.
Lucky: What's my grandmother and Lulu doing here?
Scott: Oh, I don't know. Maybe they heard you were arrested.
Lucky: Lulu can't see me. It'll upset her.
Scott: Well, now, that's not my problem, is it, Lucky?
Lucky: Will you listen to yourself, man? Lulu's all upset already. My mom and dad are missing. The last thing she needs to be doing is worrying about me.
Scott: You are right about that. Excuse me.
Lesley: We're here to pick up Lucky.
Taggert: Oh, hi. As far as I know, he hasn't been released yet.
Lesley: Scott Baldwin called me and said he would be, and Lulu's very excited about her brother coming home.
Taggert: You care to enlighten me there, Mr. Baldwin?
Scott: Oh, hi, Lesley.
Scott: I guess you misunderstood.
Scott: Yeah, I said there was a chance that Lucky might be released.
Lesley: I know exactly what you said, Scotty.
Lesley Lu: Isn't Lucky coming home with us?
Taggert: Ahem. Would you excuse me a moment, please?
Lesley: Yes, of course.
Taggert: Hey. How can you do this?
Scott: I'm doing my job, Taggert.
Taggert: No, you're not. You're using that little girl to make Lucky give up his old man.
Sonny's voice: He's pushing me. He thinks I won't end it? Watch. He comes to hurt me, I'll hurt him back. If he comes after me again, I will send that boat to the bottom of the harbor with him in it.
Carly: What you doing?
Sonny: Listen, Michael? I know why you're upset.
Michael: You do?
Carly: Yeah, I told your dad what happened today.
Sonny: Your friend had to go home, and his mother came and took him home?
Sonny: Okay. I want you to be clear on something. This had nothing to do with you. It's about me.
Michael: Me and Bryan were having fun.
Sonny: I know Bryan’s your friend, but you know what? His mother has ideas about me, and I can't change that.
[Knock on door]
Michael: You wouldn't do anything bad, would you, Daddy?
Zander: You're going to kill me because I know Sonny Corinthos?
Alcazar: You've become a problem, an obstacle to be removed.
Zander: So let me get this straight. The woman you love loved Sonny, and I remind you of that, so you have to get rid of me? Do you realize how stupid that is?
Alcazar: I'm glad you think this is funny. Maybe it's the drugs you're on.
Zander: You know, I imagined going a lot of ways, but this --
Alcazar: Throw him overboard to drown. Make it look like an accident.
Jax: Well, you -- you played it brilliantly, Skye. I mean, I consider myself a man of experience, but I never saw this coming.
Skye: Grandfather set me up. I -- I was hurt. I was angry.
Jax: Your facade was perfect.
Skye: Jax, I thought you were with another woman. I couldn't stand it.
Jax: Don't play the wounded little girl with me, Skye! I've heard it too many times -- that you had a bad childhood, that you're unable to trust, that you don't really know what real love is. When I -- when I fell in love with you, I wanted to change your life. I wanted to make up for all the hurts and betrayals you'd suffered.
Skye: You did. You did, Jax.
Jax: Well, I suffered, too, you know? I lost someone that I cared about deeply. And I shut myself off for years and I swore that I wouldn't open up again until I found you.
Skye: I know you put your faith in me, and that meant everything to me.
Jax: Oh, God, stop lying.
Skye: No, Jax, I love you. I do. I have never stopped. I swear it. You got to believe me.
Jax: Well, that's too bad because I never want to see you again.
Jax: You know, let's just make this quick and clean. I'm going to go.
Skye: No, Jax, I will not let you cut me off.
Jax: You had a great plan, Skye, but it backfired, okay?
Skye: No, I didn't want it to work. That's why I went to Edward and I begged him to rip up --
Jax: You signed the papers. Your intentions were there in black and white.
Skye: You lied to me about going to Paris, and then Edward had that photograph. What was I supposed to think?
Jax: You assume the worst. I can't live like that, Skye, not knowing if you're going to jump at the wrong conclusions and then seek revenge.
Skye: I've changed.
Jax: You could've told me about that contract for how long? Instead, you go sneaking around behind my back, trying to snatch up copies like some madwoman.
Skye: No, I was afraid that if I showed it to you that you'd shut me out, just like you're doing right now.
Jax: You know, people told me what you were like. I didn't believe them. I -- I was certain that I knew the real you deep down, you know? But I guess there is no deep down.
Skye: No, Jax, you -- you do know me. You know me -- you know me better than anyone ever has.
Jax: You're a manipulator, Skye.
Skye: No, no, not anymore.
Jax: I fell in love with the woman I wanted you to be, not the woman you are.
Skye: You stop pretending that you don't care.
Jax: I'm not pretending. That's your game.
Skye: Then you be honest with yourself. You said you want to spend the rest of your life with me. You just can't shut your feelings off just like that.
Jax: I know when to cut my losses.
Skye: No, you don't get to walk away, damn it! Look, I was tricked into turning against you. And maybe I took it too far, but, hey, you know me. I never take anything halfway. I do it all the way, and that's one of the things you love best about me.
Jax: No, "loved," Skye, past tense. It's over.
Skye: Stop trying to convince yourself! I know the truth. I know that there is a bond between us that is much too strong to be broken.
Jax: I should've followed my instincts --
Skye: But you did, Jax! You followed your instincts, okay? You didn't want to fall in love again, but you did. God knows I didn't, but it happened. And we found love and happiness and a chance to start over again. Now, you know that. That is something worth fighting for, Jax, so fight for it, damn it! Fight for me! Fight for me! Fight for our love! Fight for it, damn it!
Alexis: A human skull?
Nikolas: I found it in a locker Rick Webber had a key to.
Alexis: Which came into your possession how, exactly?
Nikolas: The police were going through Rick’s personal effects. They had the key with them. It looked like a locker key. So I tried a few places -- the post office, the airport, the bus station -- and there it was.
Alexis: You stole police evidence.
Nikolas: To protect my brother, Alexis, and to see if you can use it.
Alexis: You have just interfered with a murder investigation --
Nikolas: Come on, Alexis! Alexis, come on. Scott may be guilty. He may have murdered that woman. He's now holding my brother for a crime he didn't commit, twisting these facts to whatever shape he wants, throwing his weight around. I'm not going to let that happen. If the D.A. can break the rules, so can I.
Alexis: You didn't break them, Nikolas. You -- you destroyed them. You mangled them.
Nikolas: What are you going to do, turn me in?
Alexis: I'm going to pretend that this conversation never happened.
Nikolas: Alexis, please, just give this to Scott. Please.
Alexis: I have a contact at the forensics lab. I will have him test it and see what we can find out about the deceased. And with any luck, we will see just exactly how involved Scott Baldwin really is.
Scott: Rick Webber was murdered, all right? If Lucky didn't do it, he knows who did.
Taggert: Oh, I see. So you bring in the little sister, huh? What is your plan, Mr. D.A., Huh? You going to get the little girl to burst out into tears and have Lucky shout out a confession?
Scott: Whatever works.
Taggert: No. Something else is going on here, okay? You may hate Luke Spencer, but you're friendly with the rest of the family.
Scott: Hey, stand down, Taggert. This is my investigation. I'll handle it my way.
Taggert: And if the little girl gets hurt in the process, huh? Why are you pushing so hard, huh?
Lesley: Excuse me, gentlemen. I would like to take my grandson home now.
Scott: I'm sorry, Lesley, but that's not possible.
Lesley: Then why are we here?
Scott: Well, you know, I thought things would be wrapped up, but there are some loose ends. If you'd like, you could have a visit with him.
Lesley Lu: There's Lucky! Hi, Lucky!
Lesley: Hey, sweetie.
Lesley Lu: Can he come home now, please?
Scott: I'm sorry. In a little bit, okay?
Lesley: Scotty, how can you let this go on?
Taggert: Mrs. Webber --
Taggert: I'm really sorry you had to come down here and waste your time.
Lesley: Yes. I am, too.
Lesley Lu: Lucky looks so sad. Please let him out.
Nikolas: What's going on, Scott? Why is my sister here?
Lesley: Because Scotty called us and told us that Lucky was going to be released.
Nikolas: Did he?
Lesley: Mm-hmm. It's all right, baby. It's all right. Lucky's going to come home -- soon.
Nikolas: Hey -- hey, you. Hey. I will take care of everything, okay? I promise you. I want you to go home with Grandma, all right?
Lesley Lu: Okay.
Nikolas: Let's go.
Lesley: Thank you, sweetheart.
Nikolas: You bet. Have you spoken with Luke?
Lesley: Not a word.
Nikolas: Okay, I'm going to call you later.
Nikolas: I'll come by, see how she's doing.
Lesley: That'd be great. Come on, let's go get some frozen yogurt. What do you say?
Scott: Where do you think you're going?
Nikolas: Don't touch me. To see my brother. This ends right now, Scott.
Carly: Hey, of course your father would never do anything bad. Okay? Look, Bryan’s mommy just doesn't know your daddy, and if she did, she'd know he's a very good person. Aren't you going to say hi to Jason? Look.
Carly: All right, we're going to let you go because you have some business --
Jason: No, no, it can wait. Michael is more important.
Carly: Well, of course he's more important. But Michael’s fine, right? And he understands that Bryan’s mommy made a mistake, right? Yeah.
Sonny: You got something on our European friend in the harbor?
Jason: Yes, I do.
Sonny: Okay. Got to go, but I'll come back.
Michael: You got to go?
Sonny: Yeah, I got to go, but you know what? When I get back, you can show me how to use that -- what is that?
Michael: Giant robot.
Sonny: Giant robot. All right. I'll be back.
Carly: See you. You still upset? Something still bothering you? You know you can tell me. It's all right.
Michael: Are there boats in the harbor?
Carly: Well, yeah, there's boats at the pier, like when we go and take a ride on your daddy's speedboat.
Michael: What happens if a boat sinks?
Carly: Well, hopefully, everyone's got a life preserver on.
Michael: What if they don't? What if --
Michael: The boat goes down to the bottom of the harbor and the people are on it?
Carly: Sweetie, are you worried about your daddy? Honey, you worried he might be on a boat that's going to sink? Let me tell you something. Your daddy knows a lot about boats, and he is very, very careful. And he's been on boats for years and years, and he's never had an accident, okay? So everything is going to be just fine. You don't have to worry, okay?
Carly: Here. Hello? Yeah, hey, Colette. Did you get the fabric for the guest room? Oh, you know, I'm not real into plaid. No. I'm going to be right upstairs, okay? Uh-uh. No, no, no. No, I have some swatches. Let me tell you what I have, okay?
Jason: Sonny wants to see you.
Jason: Do you have some time to answer some questions for him?
Elizabeth: Yeah. Yeah, sure.
Sonny: I understand you overheard a conversation between Roy DiLucca and a man named Alcazar?
Elizabeth: Yeah, that's right.
Sonny: Okay, I need you to tell me everything Alcazar said. He's a dangerous man, and I don't want him hurting anybody I care about.
Carly: Hey, sweetie, I'm sorry that took so long. How about we play with your -- Michael? Michael, you know you're supposed to ask before you go in the kitchen and make a snack. Michael?
Alcazar: Your guest is gone. I know all about him. Keeping him downstairs because she wanted to hear all about Corinthos and Jacks. So you ask the questions, gather as much information as you could.
Woman: He got on the boat. I didn't know what to do.
Alcazar: Report him to me, obviously! But you didn't because you thought you were helping your patient. Unfortunately, all you've done is hurt her.
Woman: Mr. Alcazar, I'm so sorry. I would've told --
Alcazar: What's done is done! Now, I want you to tell me everything she told you about Corinthos and Jacks. Has she mentioned anything about wanting to return to either one of them?
Lucky: Hey. What were Lesley and Lulu doing here?
Nikolas: They thought they were taking you home.
Lucky: What gave them that idea?
Nikolas: Who do you think?
Nikolas: Yeah. He used the bait of your release to get them down here.
Lucky: I know. I saw Lulu. It looked like she was about ready to burst into tears, and that's exactly what he wanted. You know, my dad's right -- Baldwin’s slime.
Nikolas: Yeah, he is right, but Lulu is upset. Her parents are missing. Her brother's in jail.
Lucky: He can't just keep me here on -- on bogus murder charges.
Nikolas: He's got your prints. He can fake it.
Lucky: Not for long.
Nikolas: Lucky, we are running out of time. Your family needs you. You're not doing them any good by being locked up here for a crime that you did not commit.
Lucky: Yeah, well, tell that to the D.A.
Nikolas: I know you're not going to want to hear this, but I think it's time you gave up Luke.
Lucky: You're right.
Jax: You're so beautiful when you cry. I almost believe you mean it.
Skye: I do.
Jax: I've just seen it too many times.
Skye: Jax, please. Tell me, what can I do? How -- how can I prove my love to you?
Jax: It's too late, Skye.
Skye: No, it is not too late. We can get back to what we had in the beginning.
Jax: What we had was sex and business. Is that what you really want?
Skye: Maybe, yes, that's how it started, but it changed. We -- we changed.
Jax: No, no, neither one of us changed.
Skye: No, that is not true. You -- you taught me what real love is, and that is why I didn't want to go through with Grandfather's scheme.
Jax: You can't stop lying, can you?
Skye: No, Jax, look at me. You know me. You know my heart.
Jax: Not only did you lie to my face, you jeopardized my entire family. You tried to destroy what they worked hard for.
Skye: No, I -- I wouldn't do that to you.
Jax: Roy stole that oil map, but Edward wanted you to take it, didn't he? That's why he kept calling the house when I had the map, right? That's why you kept looking over my shoulder every time I opened the safe. You couldn't wait to get your hands on that, could you?
Skye: No, Grandfather wanted me to get it for him, but I didn't.
Jax: Did you try?
Skye: I -- I told Grandfather --
Jax: Did you try?
Jax: Do you have -- do you have any idea what kind of damage that would've done to my family?
Skye: Jax, I wouldn't have let Grandfather do that to you. I would've found a way to tell you about it.
Jax: I don't want to hear it.
Skye: No, Jax --
Jax: I don't want to hear it.
Skye: Look, I didn't want to show you that contract, okay, because I was afraid that -- I was afraid you'd stop loving me.
Jax: It's always about you, isn't it, Skye? It's always about Skye. Me, my entire family -- we don't matter.
Skye: No, Jax, you matter. You do. That is why I told you about the contract. I swear I won't lie to you again. I swear it.
Jax: Well, you won't have a chance.
Skye: Jax, please, don't do this.
Jax: I don't want to see you. I don't want to hear from you. Okay? You're a mistake. You're a mistake I made. You can keep the necklace.
Bob: What'll you have?
Bob: You want a drink or not?
Skye: I always want a drink. Martini, dry with a twist. Ooh, just makes my mouth water to think about it. You know what life is? One, long karmic joke. All those really great things you think you're going to get someday -- well, you know what? You don't get them. No, they just kind of disappear right in front of your eyes. Today I -- I started on high, ended at rock bottom. Grandfather would just love the symmetry of it all. Took everything away from me when I was born, and now he's taking it away from me again -- the only person that I've ever really loved. "A mistake." He called me "a mistake." Sure would buy a lot of martinis, though. But I haven't had one in years.
Bob: Are you sure you want this one?
Skye: Oh, what the hell. Here's to a mistake making a mistake. It all fits.
Skye: Keep them coming.
Sonny: He says he has something I want more than anything?
Elizabeth: Yeah, that's right.
Sonny: Nothing more? No specifics?
Elizabeth: Uh-uh. That's it.
Sonny: Can you think back? Was he talking about money?
Elizabeth: To me it sounded like something more personal.
Sonny: Okay. Something that I want, huh? Was it a person?
Elizabeth: Yeah, maybe a person.
Sonny: Nothing else? Nothing -- you know, no comments, nothing you could --
Elizabeth: No, I'm sorry. I wish I could be more helpful, but that's it.
Sonny: No, no, you were. Thank you.
Jason: Not much to go on?
Sonny: Well, if Alcazar is talking about a person in my life, that means he could be going after my family.
Carly: Michael? Michael! I've looked everywhere. He's gone. He's gone. How could you let him get out?
Johnny: I just stepped away to get the mail.
Carly: You aren't paid to get the mail! You are paid to protect us! Why weren't you watching?
Johnny: It was only a moment, Carly.
Carly: You know things are dangerous. Sonny told you that. You knew it! Oh, my God. What if somebody took Michael?
Johnny: Look, I'll search the building.
Carly: No. Now, you call Benny. Call him right now. Get on the phone with him! You tell him I want every single one of Sonny's men looking for him. Oh, my God, if somebody hurt my son --
Johnny: He's probably just hiding somewhere.
Carly: No, he's not. Something's wrong. I feel it.
Lucky: Yeah. Yeah, you're right. Mom and Dad would want me to take care of the family, especially Lulu. I can't quite do that from a jail cell.
Nikolas: So you'll tell Scott what you know, then?
Lucky: I'll make him think that I am.
Nikolas: I don't -- I don't like the sound of this.
Lucky: No, no, hey --
Nikolas: I don't like it.
Lucky: Trust me.
Nikolas: I do trust you. But Scott -- he's going to know when you're lying.
Lucky: I don't care -- he brought Lulu down here to get me all torn up so that I'll spill my guts about my dad. Now, if he wants me to buy into his ego, I'll do that. I'll make him believe that he succeeded.
Nikolas: You hope, you know? You hope.
Lucky: He'll release me. Do me a favor. Tell him I'm ready to talk.
Nikolas: It's worth a try. We have nothing to lose, right?
Nikolas: Lucky wants to talk to you now.
Scott: Good. Glad he came to his senses.
Nikolas: Not so fast.
Scott: What do you want?
Nikolas: Well, his attorney has to be present.
Scott: Oh, come on. Give me a break.
Nikolas: It's the law, remember?
Scott: He knows the truth. Let him spit it out.
Nikolas: Scott, what's the big rush, huh?
Scott: You know what? Call Alexis.
Nikolas: I will.
Alexis: Alexis Davis.
Nikolas: Hey, it's me. Look, Lucky's ready to talk to Scott, tell him everything.
Alexis: Tell him not to say anything till I get there.
Nikolas: Okay, that's what I just told Scott.
Alexis: Good. Scott Baldwin’s day is about to take a turn for the worse.
Taggert: Lucky's phone records.
Scott: Well, what do we got?
Taggert: Well, we got 11 calls placed to his phone an hour apart for the past 12 hours, all hang-ups.
Scott: Glasses. Well, I'd say that Spencer’s trying to get ahold of his son.
Taggert: Lucky will find a way to spin it.
Scott: Well, he's about to come in and give a statement.
Alexis: Hi, Scott.
Scott: Where's your client?
Alexis: We have a certain matter to discuss first -- alone. Thanks.
Scott: Come on, come on. Stop stalling.
Alexis: Oh, now, you relax. This will only take a minute.
Scott: Well, Lucky's ready to talk, and I'm ready to listen.
Alexis: Good idea. Meet Theresa Carter. Although -- that's right -- you already know each other, don't you?
Ned: Skye told you?
Jax: I guess I have you to thank.
Ned: You needed to know, Jax. I couldn't let you marry her without finding out.
Jax: Yeah, well, the wedding's certainly off now, that's for sure.
Ned: Look, I'm not going to pretend that I'm a big fan of my cousin Skye, but I know what you two had.
Jax: What I thought we had.
Ned: You were going to spend the rest of your life with her, so you're certainly allowed to have second thoughts.
Jax: Look, I -- I want to see the contract.
Ned: Are you sure?
Jax: "I agree to take whatever steps are necessary to bring about the financial ruin of Jasper Jacks." No room for misinterpretation, is there?
Ned: I'm sorry, buddy.
Jax: Yeah, don't be. You did me a favor. And one good turn deserves another.
Ned: What's this?
Jax: I've consolidated all of my E.L.Q. stock. I am offering you a chance to buy me out.
Ned: You're serious?
Jax: Well, you've always wanted full power of E.L.Q. Now's your chance.
Ned: Actually, there were plenty of times when I wanted absolutely nothing to do with Grandfather's business empire.
Jax: And that's because he was at the wheel.
Jax: Come on, Ned. Don't tell me your sole purpose for showing me that contract was to fix my personal life.
Ned: No, you're right. It wasn't the only factor.
Jax: Because I intend to distance myself from your entire family -- you and Lila excluded, of course.
Ned: Well, that's understandable.
Jax: So you'll take it?
Ned: Yes, I will, because I'm going to need all the resources I can get.
Jax: What for?
Ned: To pay back the people who got Kristina killed in that warehouse.
Jax: Well, E.L.Q. will certainly give you the leverage to hurt Corinthos.
Alan: I'll take care of you, Father. I swear on my life.
Skye: I hate you, old man. Can you hear me? Are my words sinking into your brain? I hate everything that you are, everything you've ever done to me. Kept my parents apart with lies. Got rid of me -- the dirty little secret. Sold me off to a baby broker. My adoptive parents treated me like some prized pony who didn't quite live up to their expectations. That's how I thought people were. You do one thing wrong, love just goes away. But maybe, maybe if you play your cards right it'll -- it'll come back. That's what I thought love was -- until Jax. I found out what love really was, and I trusted it was real. And you took it away from me. Now I need to take something away from you. Something equally precious.
Alexis: Forensics has positively I.D.'d this as the skull of a missing woman named Theresa Carter. She died more than 20 years ago. She was killed by a blow to the head.
Scott: Why are you bringing it to me?
Alexis: Because she was murdered, Scott, and I think you did it.
Elizabeth: Hey. Where have you been?
Man: I found him in the water. He's in shock or something.
Elizabeth: Hey, Zander? Hey.
Zander: Who -- who are you?
Michael: Where's the pier?
Woman: Are you lost?
A.J.: Hey, Michael, how you doing? It's okay. I know him.
Woman: Do you know this man?
Michael: Yes, I do.
A.J.: Thank you. Hey. It's good to see you.
Michael: I have to go.
A.J.: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You know what? I know where the pier is. I just want to help. Why do you have to get to the pier?
Michael: I have to find my dad before he hurts someone.
Jason: Here are the first surveillance photos, okay? And from what we can tell, he's got a standard crew. He's got three or four bodyguards.
Sonny: Okay, like I said, I want him under surveillance at all time. Move the boats in the area. That way we can -- you know, you can watch him from the water, too.
Jason: Okay. Got it covered.
Sonny: I can't take any chances with Alcazar. If he's coming after me through my family, then we got to -- we got to bring him down now.
Sonny: All right.
Jason: Here we go.
Jason: One of his couriers.
Jason: One of his men.
Sonny: The woman.
Sonny: You got a picture of her face?
Carly: Sonny? Sonny, is it you?
Skye: Why? Why would you take away the most precious thing I've ever had in my life? The man that I'm going to marry. My future. My happiness. Do you really hate me that much? Or is it just you, Grandfather? The way you love to hurt people. The way you feed off their pain. The way you like to hurt people even when you claim to love them. You've done so much damage, left so many dreams in ruin. Why don't you do us all a favor and just die.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
A.J.: I'm your father.
Michael: Leave me alone.
Scott: If I don't release Lucky --
Alexis: This skull ends up on Mac’s desk.
Sonny: She could be one of Alcazar's weaknesses.
Elizabeth: Zander, what happened to you?
Man: Zander Smith is still alive.
Alcazar: Eliminate them both now.
Skye: I think I did something terrible.
