>> previously on "General Hospital" --
Judge: I hereby sentence you to life in prison.
[Judge pounds gavel]
Skye: I love you, and someday you are going to love me back.
Carly: So, is that his ship out there?
Sonny: He needs to know that we're not hiding. It's his move.
Brenda: Oh, God, please let this work.
Alcazar: It's going to sink. We have to find a way out there. She could be trapped onboard.
Luke: What do you think you're doing?
Lucky: I'm getting you out of here.
Luke: The hell you are.
Lucky: Come on, Dad. I got a car out front. Let's go.
Luke: I got a better idea.
Luke: Let's make a list of everything that could go wrong -- people stop us, I get recognized, you get shot.
Lucky: You think your plan's better? Let's hear it.
Luke: What plan?
Lucky: Dad, you told me you had no intention of going to prison.
Luke: Did I say that?
Lucky: I'm not letting you break out of here on your own. It's too dangerous.
Luke: Dangerous is you impersonating a cop, cowboy. Now, get out of here.
Lucky: No way.
Luke: You're in this much too deep already.
Lucky: I'm not leaving here without you, dad.
Skye: If I had known that we were going to be hiking, I would've worn more sensible shoes.
Jax: No, we're not hiking.
Skye: Well, no skinny-dipping, either, please. It's kind of chilly tonight.
Jax: You will remain completely dry, I promise. We're staying right here.
Skye: An overturned rowboat?
Jax: That's right. It's to sit on while you and I talk about stuff. Cold?
Skye: Yeah, a little.
Jax: I'll -- I'll get a little fire started.
Skye: Jax, is this all leading to you telling me something I'm not going to like?
Jax: Well, it's -- it's a possibility.
Carly: You think Alcazar was killed in the explosion?
Sonny: Jason's going to find out.
Carly: I thought only you and Jax hated Alcazar. I mean -- and Roy -- I guess he could've done it, like you said. But -- I don't know. Whatever it is, there a lot of people who want him out of here.
Sonny: Alcazar came to Port Charles to make enemies.
Carly: Yeah. Well, he got what he wanted.
Sonny: What'd you find out?
Jason: Alcazar's on pier 17.
Jason: He was not on the yacht when it blew up.
Sonny: Anybody killed?
Jason: They don't know yet. They're still evacuating the boat right now.
Carly: Well, do you think Alcazar would just give up now that he's got a chance?
Sonny: I doubt it.
Jason: No, Alcazar went through a lot of trouble to set this plan in motion. He is not going to bail the first time something goes wrong.
Sonny: Ok, you know what? I'm going to pay Alcazar a visit to offer my condolences.
Carly: No, Sonny, you can't. You can't. I -- I have a really bad feeling about this.
Alcazar: They have to find her. She was locked in the hold. Make sure they get to her before that ship goes down. I'm not done with you yet.
Sonny: I'll be back soon.
Carly: Wait a minute. This guy is out to kill you. What am I supposed to do, sit around eating bonbons?
Sonny: It's business.
Carly: Since when?
Sonny: It's business.
Carly: Since when? You told me yourself. You told me that Alcazar isn't after you for any reason that you know of except that one day he woke up and he decided he wanted to dismantle your life. What if tonight's the night he wants to finish that, huh?
Sonny: I will take precautions. Now --
Carly: Sonny, look, I'm sorry. I am sorry, ok, but I've got a really, really bad vibe about this, ok? It's a gut feeling. It's something that I have learned to listen to. What if I had that dream for a reason?
Sonny: I can't make decisions based on your dreams. Alcazar's yacht is on fire. I can't use it to run him out of town. We got to make a move right now!
Carly: Ok, well, what if that's exactly what he wants you to do? No, no, no. This could be a setup, couldn't it, Jason?
Sonny: Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. But it's my risk that I have to take! This is not a democracy.
Carly: No, it's not. It's a marriage, ok, and, excuse me. Excuse me for being selfish. But I'm not real enthusiastic about becoming a widow.
Sonny: I'll watch my back.
Carly: Sonny, listen --
Carly: What if he's got you -- you outnumbered? What if -- what if he takes you by surprise?
Sonny: What if, what if, what if, what if. What if I trip out of the car and break my neck? We can go on with worst-case scenarios. It's not going to change anything.
Carly: Ok, you know --
Sonny: We're wasting time.
Sonny: Help me out here.
Carly: Fine, you want to get ticked off at me and you want to tell me I am way out of line? It's fine, ok. But I have a feeling. I know this feeling, ok, and something is not right. Will you please do me a favor? Please do not go see Alcazar tonight.
Jason: Ok. Hold on. What if I go in first, just check it out, see if Alcazar's vulnerable?
Sonny: All right, go ahead. You do it. The operation's in chaos. We got to move, though, Jason! We got to move! We got to move now!
Carly: Ok, Sonny, I know what you're going to say, ok, but this danger -- this danger feels so real, it feels like it's in the room with us.
Sonny: It is in the room. It's your fear.
Alcazar: Take her back to the hotel.
Felicia: What's this about? Why are you holding me? What's Roy going to do?
Alcazar: I don't have time for this.
Felicia: I assume once Roy does this thing that he's going to do that everybody's going to know about it. Why don't you just tell me what he's going to do now?
Alcazar: Take her back to the hotel and lock her up. She gives you any more trouble, shoot her.
Felicia: Please --
man: We don't know how it happened.
Second man: There was an explosion in the engineer.
Alcazar: I don't care about the yacht. Where is Brenda? Is she all right?
Man: We haven't seen her.
Jax: See, you and I need to discuss something.
Skye: Always the diplomat.
Jax: This isn't easy, Skye.
Skye: Jax, I have made every mistake in the book -- I know that -- the worst being listening to grandfather when I should've believed in you. And I -- if you'd just give me a chance to prove to you --
Jax: No, it's not that.
Skye: Good, because that was my all-time low, I'll tell you that.
Jax: It's the fact that you had a drink.
Skye: Oh. That.
Jax: Yeah, you told me that you've been sober for years, going to A.A. meetings. The day we break up, you have a drink.
Skye: Yes, I did.
Jax: I understand how important your sobriety is to you, Skye. Perhaps this is too private for you to discuss, but we need to talk about it because it affects me, too.
Skye: It does, and you have every right to ask me about it.
Jax: I love you, Skye, but I don't want to be the reason you drink. You've worked so hard to stay sober. I need to know that you're handling it. You know, life has its ups and downs. None of them are predictable. And you managed to -- to stay sober up until the point where -- up until the point where I turn away from you. See, I can't be responsible for you to take that risk again. I understand if you don't have an answer ready, so maybe, you know, just think about it.
Skye: No, I don't have to. I have an answer for you right now.
Lucky: Come on, dad. You had a plan. You basically admitted it to me.
Luke: I'll tell you this much -- nothing's going to happen tonight.
Lucky: You're going to go see Mom, and it's going to be a hell of a lot easier if you let me help you get out of here.
Luke: You've already been arrested once for this mess.
Lucky: And it's not going to happen again.
Luke: You're impersonating a cop, lucky. The PCPD has no humor about that. They'll throw you in the slammer so fast, it'll make your badge spin.
Lucky: Yeah, I know what I'm doing. You drove it into me. If somebody spots me, I make eye contact, right, and I'm nice and confident.
Luke: Yeah, well, there's one snag.
Lucky: What's that?
Luke: Too many people know you. You'll get nailed.
Lucky: Not if we work together on this thing.
Luke: Look, son, I appreciate what you're trying to do, really, but it's too risky.
Lucky: Riskier than you making a break on your own with some rookie cop on your tail who will shoot first and think later?
Luke: Better me than you.
Lucky: You know, you can only dodge so many bullets alone, dad.
Luke: I've been dodging bullets since long before you were born, boy.
Lucky: Mom needs you. You can't take that chance.
Luke: I've got this thing covered.
Lucky: Dad, please. Just listen. Come on. You've got --
Luke: Lucky -- you helped me just being here, being who you are. It helps me more than you know. But I have to do this my way.
Scott: All right. Off we go, Spencer.
Luke: Stopped by to say good night? I'm touched.
Scott: I bet you are.
Luke: Shouldn't you be having a press conference or something? Making sure the reporters spell your name right or planning your "I sent Spencer to Sing Sing" celebration?
Scott: Guard -- I need some time with the prisoner.
Luke: You heard the man, guard. Get out of here.
Scott: I know what you're up to, Spencer.
Luke: You read minds now, Kreskin? Is there no end to your talent?
Scott: Life in prison. No booze, women, nothing. But, see, you're acting like you're going to the dog track for the afternoon.
Luke: Look, I confessed. You got your sentence. What the hell more do you want?
Scott: Aw, cut it out. You're planning to escape. I know it and you know it.
Jax: Look, I'm not looking for promises that you'll never take a drink again.
Skye: But you need to know that I'm not relying on you to keep me sober.
Jax: I understand if you don't have a clear answer for me.
Skye: But I do, Jax, because it's so simple. I love you, but I love being sober even more. My sobriety isn't dependent on anyone but myself. It's about me alone, about my decisions, how I feel inside, how I choose to live my life. And if I thought for a minute that you would jeopardize my commitment to my sobriety, I couldn't be with you.
Jax: Yeah, but you had a drink right after we broke up.
Skye: I am the one who picked up that drink, ok? No one else is to blame.
Jax: Yeah, but you hit that low because of me.
Skye: Jax -- the things you said to me -- it broke my heart, it's true. But it was about -- it was about everything else getting me to that point, you know -- my anger at my grandfather, my shame at my own behavior. I'm not saying that's an excuse. I'm not. I'm just -- I'm trying to get you to understand what a fine line it is that I walk every day.
Jax: It's been a long time since you've crossed that line.
Skye: And I wasn't going to. When I was walking out of that bar, the recovery room, I got up and my shoe broke. The sandal strap came off. And in that moment, I lost my resolve. In that moment, I turned around, I picked up that drink, and I downed it. It was that easy.
Jax: I'm sorry.
Skye: Don't be. I have nobody else to blame but myself. I -- I just got lazy about my A. A. Meetings. I need them. I'd just forgotten how much.
Jax: But you're back now?
Skye: When I was on the run, I went religiously, two, three times a day. It was all I had to hang on to -- just 90 meetings in 90 days. 90 meetings in 90 days. Just don't take a drink today. I guess I'm scaring you, huh?
Jax: No, no, you're helping me understand this.
Skye: Jax, there's a monster that lives inside me, and it's not going to go away, and I can't ever ignore that.
Jax: That sounds like bravery to me.
Skye: I don't know. Sometimes I feel like I'm just too frozen to move inside, like I'm just afraid to give, to -- to love, to trust. But you've helped me so much.
Jax: I'm not so sure about that.
Skye: No. You make me want to be a better person, to reach for my better self, to pull back when my baser instincts just want to take over. I know it might sound a little odd, but it gives me great faith in myself that I was able to pick a man that's so good for me.
Jax: Well, you know, you're pretty good for me, too.
Skye: No. I don't know. I'm no saint, Jax. I never was, and I never will be.
Jax: Well, I mean, living with a perfect person -- it'd get quite boring after a while.
Skye: I'm glad you feel that way.
Jax: The fact is that I've never admired a woman as much as I admire you.
Jax: Yes. I mean, you face a monster every day. You're a savvy businesswoman. You're a survivor of emotional abuse. Well, you're extremely passionate. They're all parts of you, Skye. They're all parts of a woman that I'm falling deeper in love with every day.
Skye: You sure you know what you're getting yourself into?
Jax: You know, perhaps you were right. Perhaps this is one, big test. This happened for a reason. And that reason was so that I could realize what a treasure I have sitting here right in front of me.
Alcazar: Where's Brenda?
Man: The explosion knocked me out. When I came to, I tried to open the door, but the door wouldn't budge.
Alcazar: Did you hear her? Was she inside?
Man: I didn't hear a thing. It was flooded, though. There's no way she would've survived.
Alcazar: You left her in there to die?
Man: No, no, I -- no. I tried to open the door, but it was jammed.
Alcazar: Corinthos did this?
Sonny: You're letting your imagination run away with you.
Carly: I am telling you that my dream felt like a premonition.
Sonny: Carly, you know me. You know the life I lead. You know all the ways I keep myself safe. I am alive today because I know what I'm doing. I think before I act. I take precautions, right?
Carly: Ok, ok. Two years ago, you were shot in front of the PCPD and your heart stopped. And I stood over you in I.C.U., screaming at the doctors not to give up. And I begged you to come back to me, and you did, and I want you to come back to me this time, too, Sonny.
Sonny: I will. I'm going to come back.
Carly: All right. Well, what -- what if --
Sonny: No, no, no. Listen to me. No -- no, don't -- forget what ifs, ok? You're a strong woman. You need to be strong now.
Carly: Ok, being strong is -- is telling you what I'm thinking and speaking my mind, telling you when I think you're walking into a trap.
Sonny: Ok, I heard you now, and you've got to hear me out here. I can't have -- I can't have distractions. Ok? I got to be able to follow my instincts. I can't be always thinking about what you're doing or what you're thinking or whatever.
Carly: Ok --
Sonny: I -- I can't make -- I'll make mistakes that way.
Carly: Ok. Well, you know what? That's exactly it -- I think you're making a mistake right now.
Sonny: I asked Jason to go, didn't I? Ok? When he gets back and I make the decision to go, don't fight me on this. Can you do that for me?
[Knock on door]
Sonny: Come on in.
Taggert: What do you -- what do you know about that yacht exploding out there in the harbor?
Sonny: You tell me. I saw it from the window.
Officer: Lt. Taggert, we caught this guy coming up the back stairs.
Scott: Whatever plan you're hatching, Spencer, it ain't going to work.
Luke: Ah, you know a hell of a lot more than I do, don't you?
Scott: Yeah. What I do know is that you were arrested, convicted, and sentenced, but you never so much as blinked an eye because you think you have no intention of spending a single minute in prison.
Luke: You know, you ought to see a doctor about this grandiose paranoid streak.
Scott: No, you're the one who's delusional because you actually think that you're going to escape and that you're going to go run to Laura.
Luke: That would be pretty difficult, wouldn't it?
Luke: She's across the ocean.
Scott: Yeah, it would, but you don't comprehend this. See, you've got this bizarre belief that you and only you, Spencer, can bring Laura back to reality.
Luke: And I could if she were here.
Scott: Well, she's not. She's in the best facility in the world.
Luke: Surrounded by strangers.
Scott: Surrounded by doctors and specialists that know and understand her condition.
Luke: A condition you put her in.
Scott: No, I didn't put her in that condition. In fact, when she -- when she saw you, she begged anyone to get you away from her.
Luke: Because you destroyed her, you bastard! Get out of here!
Scott: You're not giving orders anymore! You're a convict, you're a lifer, you're a convicted -- here's how it's going to happen, Spencer. You're going to be picked up at an undisclosed time, put in a van, and transported on a route that only I know.
Luke: Ooh, this is a big mystery.
Nikolas: Hey, Luke.
Luke: Hey, Nik. Be careful, now. I'm unarmed and dangerous.
Nikolas: Scott, I'd like a few minutes, please.
Nikolas: You lied. You did all this to cover up for Mom.
Luke: It's done.
Nikolas: Well, whether it's done or not, I should've seen this coming a long time ago.
Luke: Oh, it doesn't matter --
Nikolas: It does matter, ok? Lucky believed you would never hurt Mom. I told him that he was just being loyal to you and that he couldn't see the truth. I owe him an apology, and I owe you one, too. I'm sorry.
Luke: Don't worry about me. But there is something you could do for Lucky.
Nikolas: What's that?
Luke: Make sure he doesn't pull any crazy stunts trying to get me out.
Nikolas: Ok. I'll do my best.
Luke: Thank you. There's -- there's something else you could help me with.
Alcazar: Corinthos set that explosion as a warning. You know I'm not --
Jason: Sonny had nothing to do with this.
Alcazar: You tell Corinthos if he sank that ship, he's destroyed the one thing he cares most about in this world.
Jason: What are you talking about?
Alcazar: Let Corinthos figure it out.
Jason: If it's destroyed, you have nothing to lose by telling me.
Alcazar: Tell Corinthos this isn't over.
Jason: Sonny didn't do this, which means you must have some enemies you don't know about. So whatever you're hoping to accomplish here, it's falling apart. So cut your losses and get out of town.
Alcazar: I don't take orders from Sonny Corinthos -- or his flunkies.
Jason: So far, all you've lost is a yacht. Next time you might not be so lucky. Leave town while you can walk.
Alcazar: Tell Corinthos he's out of time. We need some divers. Tell them to search between the yacht and the shore. I want Brenda found tonight.
Taggert: What were you doing on the stairwell there, DiLucca?
Roy: I was coming up to see Sonny.
Taggert: Oh. Well, wouldn't it be easier to take the elevator to the penthouse? That's a lot of stairs. Unless, of course, you didn't want Sonny to know you were going to pay him a visit.
Roy: I'm just looking for some answers.
Taggert: To what?
Roy: Well, Sonny and I -- we both own property on the waterfront. There's a yacht on fire out there. It's bad for business. I was hoping he could shed some light on it.
Taggert: How about it, Sonny? You got any thoughts about that?
Sonny: Yeah, I've got a thought. I was -- I was going to call the police to see what was going on.
Taggert: You two are going to have to do a lot better than that.
Sonny: Oh, you lost me there, lieutenant.
Taggert: Hostilities are escalating between you. You see, DiLucca -- he doesn't have the resources to come after you on his own, so, you know, I'm sure he's got somebody backing him.
Sonny: What about it, Roy?
Roy: I'm just a businessman. No crime in that.
Taggert: Businessman. Kristina Cassadine -- she already got caught in the middle of this. Her death is on your heads. What about you, Mrs. C? You prepared to be the next casualty? Get yourself a nice, little headstone right next to the first wife there at St. Joseph's cemetery?
Carly: I'm prepared to testify in court that you came in here without a warrant, that you're harassing my husband, and that you're using your authority as a police officer to terrorize me. I may not be able to stop you, but I certainly don't have to listen to this. I'm going to the store.
Sonny: Ok, honey. Can you pick up the yellow peppers? The fresh ones, please? Thank you.
Sonny: Yeah, yellow.
Taggert: That's nice. You making her a nice, little meal, just in case it's her last?
Sonny: Charge me or leave, lieutenant.
Taggert: You want to stonewall me? Fine. That's your choice. You made a mistake tonight, Sonny. If somebody was on that yacht when it blew up, that's going to come back to haunt you.
Roy: That yacht going down doesn't change a thing.
Alcazar: Search every inch of the shoreline.
Man: She was locked inside when the yacht went down. There's no chance --
Alcazar: Brenda didn't drown. The coast guard divers are searching the harbor. You're looking here. Find her!
Skye: I was so sure it was over between us, that I'd never be with you again.
Jax: Here we are.
Skye: I have a confession to make.
Jax: Yeah, what's that?
Skye: Remember when I finally told you about the contract I signed with Edward and you said that we were finished?
Jax: You said that we weren't.
Skye: I fought so hard to get you not to leave. I begged you to admit that you still love me. But truth is I thought that you were right to leave. In my heart of hearts, I didn't think that I deserved you.
Jax: I have a confession to make, too.
Skye: What's that?
Jax: You know, I was hurt. I was angry with you, with myself. But I never stopped loving you.
Skye: Oh. Oh, my God, Jax. This is a miracle that we're back together. It is. It -- it's just going to take me time to trust it and for you to trust me again.
Jax: That's ok. We've got all the time in the world.
Jason: What did DiLucca want?
Sonny: We'll talk about it later. What happened at the dock? What happened --
Jason: Ok, the woman who left the yacht yesterday was not Alcazar's girlfriend. His girlfriend was still onboard when it blew.
Sonny: Where is she now?
Jason: She's trapped onboard.
Man: Next Saturday at 10:00? I'll pick you up on the way.
Brenda: Hi. Hey. Listen, can I use that phone just for one second?
Man: What happened to you?
Brenda: Oh, it -- there was an accident on the lake, and I just --
man: I'll call 911.
Brenda: No, no, no. No, you don't need to call the police. I just need to use your phone for one second. Please, just one phone call I need to make on your phone.
Man: If you're hurt or something, I --
Brenda: No, no, I'm fine. Just need to make one phone call, please? It'll just take a second.
Man: Not on my phone. Whatever you're into, I don't want to be involved.
Brenda: Hey, listen. Uh -- uh -- oh, hey, look at this watch. Come here. See this watch? It's covered in diamonds. It's worth $3,000. You want this watch? Look at that. Let me use your phone. Come on. Please? Thank you.
Luke: "Darling -- when you look at the stars at n know that I'm looking at those same stars, thinking of you, longing for you, loving you. We've had years behind us, and we have years ahead of us. I swear it. One day we'll look back and see this period of time as just a bump on the crazy road trip that's been our life together. And we will be together again, soon. Until then, know how much I love you. Know that I will always love you. Luke."
Nikolas: This will -- ahem -- this will mean a lot to her.
Luke: I hope so.
Nikolas: I will take it to her when I see her in London.
Luke: Nikolas, make sure you give it to her directly. Don't let some stupid nurse or doctor think that it would not be helpful for her to see it and --
Nikolas: I'll -- I'll take care of it.
Luke: Thank you. Thank you.
Nikolas: Listen, Luke, don't give up. You will get out. Ok? Alexis is doing everything she can. She'll find a way.
Luke: Nik -- you love your mother, don't you?
Nikolas: Yes, very much.
Luke: You want to help her, don't you?
Nikolas: Yeah, but, Luke, this is --
Luke: Then tell Alexis to stay out of this. It's done now. I don't want her messing around with anything. I mean it. Do you understand?
Nikolas: Yeah. Yeah, I do.
Jax: Welcome home.
Skye: Hmm. I'll disappear more often if I'm guaranteed a homecoming like that.
Jax: No, no, no. I think once -- once was enough.
Skye: I agree.
Jax: You seem happy.
Skye: Oh, Jax, I feel like -- I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. The burden is gone. No more lies or secrets or hidden agendas.
Jax: No more threats hanging over your head.
Skye: I can be completely honest with you.
Jax: Well, let's try to keep it that way, shall we?
Skye: I will if you will.
Skye: You know, I just -- I just realized something. I'm not afraid anymore. That nagging feeling that I was on the verge of losing the best thing I ever had -- it's -- it's gone. Vanished.
Jax: Good. Because we have all the time in the world.
Alcazar: Have you found her?
Man: Not yet.
Alcazar: Did you search the entire ship, the water around it?
Man: Our rescue divers were able to make their way through the wreckage into the hold, but it was empty. No sign of the woman.
Alcazar: Then she got out.
Man: None of the crew saw her come off.
Alcazar: They could've missed her. Most of my crew were evacuated within minutes of the explosion.
Man: It's unlikely she was able to swim free. The yacht would've pulled her down, and there's burning fuel everywhere. The chances of her survival are slim.
Alcazar: She's alive. Somehow she got out. I'm certain of that. I just have to find her.
Jason: Alcazar thinks you're behind the explosion.
Sonny: No surprise there.
Jason: He said if you sank the yacht, you destroyed what you love.
Sonny: What is he talking about?
Jason: I don't know, but he is losing his mind. He is shouting and yelling at his crew.
Sonny: So he's vulnerable.
Jason: If we're going to move against him, now is the time.
Alcazar: I want Corinthos dead now, or I eliminate Felicia.
Roy: It'll happen tonight.
Brenda: Listen -- um -- I need you to make this phone call for me. Ok, all you got to do is push talk and ask for Sonny.
Man: Sonny who?
Brenda: Just Sonny.
Man: I don't know --
Brenda: Listen, all you got to do, you just push talk, you ask for Sonny. You tell him that a friend is calling and that I have information on -- listen -- Alcazar, all right? Push talk, ask for Sonny. Please.
Man: Are you getting me into something illegal?
Brenda: No, no, I'm not getting you into trouble, I promise. Just pick up the phone and ask for Sonny. It'll just take one second, I promise you.
Man: It's a nice watch.
Brenda: It's a really nice watch.
Man: Where should I tell him to meet you?
Brenda: St. Timothy's Church.
Sonny: Who's this?
Man: A friend of yours has information about Alcazar. She wants to meet with you.
Sonny: I need a name.
Man: I'm just delivering the message for the lady. Meet her at St. Timothy's Church.
Sonny: Put her on the line.
Man: She -- she doesn't want to talk. She'll see you at St. Timothy's --
Sonny: Put her on!
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Alcazar: I don't want reassurances. I want results.
Roy: I will finish Sonny tonight.
Sonny: Unless I have a reason and a name, I'm not going to meet anybody. Who is this?
Alcazar: Brenda's obviously trying to contact Corinthos and Jax. We have to find her before she does.
