>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Ric: I met with Alcazar's real killer on the pier tonight. This bag contains a swatch from her coat, stained with Alcazar's blood from when they struggled.

Courtney: If you don't tell the truth and stop Jason from going to prison, I don't have anything to lose.

Brenda: I wanted to tell you that I'm sorry.

Jason: We were set up. 

Sonny: I knew it was a setup, but I didn't -- I couldn't stop it!

[Glass breaks]

Carly: Come here. Come here.

Brenda: I wish I was in Lisbon right now.

Jason: You'll be there soon enough.

Brenda: Right. You're going to break us out of here tonight --

Jason: No, the security is too good. No, we'd never even make it to the street. Our best chance is on the way to Pentonville.

Brenda: Are you serious? You really want to try and escape?

Jason: I'm not going to be locked up, Brenda.

Brenda: What if we're shot?

Jason: It hurts.

Brenda: Oh, are you insane? What if we die?

Jason: We won't die in prison.

Scott: Why come forward now? Who are you trying to save?

Woman's voice: You don't believe me? I stabbed Alcazar in the stomach. He backed away from me, and I pushed him over the railing. Then I dropped the knife where you found it and ran.

[Click]

Scott: Hello?

Felicia: You should listen to her. Brenda and Jason are innocent. Your so-called eyewitness perjured herself.

Scott: Oh, Felicia, the facts don't match up. It's a fairy tale dreamed up by Corinthos --

Taggert: No, it's not.

Scott: Because he's trying to save them. He'll do anything. He's desperate.

Taggert: Scott, she's telling the truth.

Scott: What are you talking about, Taggert?

Taggert: Check the file, Sir.

Scott: There was no third stab wound in the stomach or anywhere else.

Taggert: There's a 1220-a notice of a sealed document in there. The autopsy showed that there was a third stab wound to the stomach. Nobody knew about it except me, the coroner, and that woman on the phone. She's Alcazar's killer.

Courtney: I shot Coleman, and he wasn't even the real stalker. Why shouldn't I shoot you?

A.J.: You're not a killer. That's your brother, not you.

Courtney: Would you just tell the truth for once, A.J. admit that you framed Jason and that you paid that witness Ida to lie. Just say the words, A.J., or I swear I'll pull the trigger! I swear, I'll do it.

Scott: Why wasn't I told about this before?

Taggert: It's in the file, Sir.

Scott: The file -- look at all these files. There's boxes of files. I was supposed to find one little form?

Ric: Look, I think the sergeant here was trying to point out --

Taggert: Lieutenant.

Ric: Oh, my apologies. The lieutenant here was just trying to say that he was following proper procedure. I don't think it's his responsibility to let the D.A. know the contents of his own case file.

Scott: Let me tell you what I'm aware of here, Lansing, okay? First of all, when I laid eyes on you, I knew you were working for Corinthos. Now you're trying to move into the number one stooge position.

Ric: Oh.

Scott: You're bought, and this woman on the phone was bought by Corinthos!

Felicia: The only person that was paid was your eyewitness, Ida Warren.

Scott: Felicia, you're the one that brought her to me.

Felicia: You were set up. I was set up. The only difference is, is that I acknowledge the problem and I try to undo the damage.

[Knock on door]

Scott: I'm busy!

Officer: Ofc. Hernandez here to pick up the new evidence.

Scott: There is no new evidence!

Taggert: It's right here, Officer. Take this down to forensics. Have them check it for Alcazar's D.N.A. If you find anybody else's, we could use it to link it to the killer, all right?

Scott: Taggert, back up.

Taggert: I --

Scott: We got the killers, and they're downstairs locked up!

Ric: Lieutenant -- Lieutenant --

Scott: What?

Ric: Excuse me. Could -- could I have a minute, please?

Taggert: Be my guest.

Ric: Thank you. Now, Mr. Baldwin, new evidence has come to light that casts serious doubt on both Jason and Brenda's conviction here. Now, I know that you're pragmatic in your heart of hearts -- a pragmatic and reasonable man who wants to do the right thing. But if you fail to advise the court of these developments, I'm afraid I'm going to have to go to not only the judge but the press as well.

Courtney: Guns are heavier than you think. I remember the first time Jason put a gun in my hand to protect me from your stalker. I remember thinking that it was so cold and awkward and how could I ever use it? So I hid it in the kitchen behind some pots and pans. And then I'd find it once in a while, and it would scare me to death. But then, you know, I'd think at the same time that Jason left if for me. He was still protecting me. I owe him, A.J. And one way or another, I am going to pay off my debt.

A.J.: Courtney, shooting me won't solve anything.

Courtney: Oh, they'll have to investigate, won't they? They'll have to figure out my motive. And that should be enough to check out your bank accounts, to figure out when and where you met Coleman and how you found Ida.

A.J.: It wasn't me.

Courtney: No, liar!

A.J.: It -- it was Coleman, all right? He found Ida. He put the whole thing together --

Courtney: Yeah, yeah, Coleman found Ida because you paid him, just like you paid him to stalk me. You needed a witness to prove that Brenda was the killer instead of Skye. But that wasn't enough, was it, A.J.? You had to get Ida to -- to make Jason look guilty, too. Why, why? So you could get revenge? For what, because he's better than you?

A.J.: Shut up.

Courtney: Just admit what you did!

A.J.: Fine. Okay, I was in on it with -- with Coleman and Skye, okay? Coleman found Ida. Skye and I paid her off, told her what to say.

Courtney: Ida never saw anything, did she? God, do you know how sick you are, A.J.?

A.J.: I'm sick? I'm sick? You're the one with the gun! What's happened to you? Why --

Courtney: You happened, A.J. You!

A.J.: Put the gun down, Courtney.

Courtney: No, we're not finished yet.

A.J.: Look, I've -- I've told you everything --

Courtney: No, no, you haven't admitted that Jason's innocent.

A.J.: Jason's the one that did this to you. Look -- he's the one who gave you this gun in the first place.

Courtney: Jason didn't kill Alcazar. You set your own brother up to send him to prison. Didn't you, A.J.? Didn't you?

A.J.: Fine. Look, yeah, I paid a witness, falsified evidence. They're innocent, okay? They're innocent. Is that what you need to hear?

Courtney: You know, I think that that's the first true thing that you've ever said to me, A.J.

Brenda: So, you've already made a decision about this? I mean, do -- do I get a vote about this?

Jason: Brenda, do you want to escape, or do you want to wait here in your cell until Jax comes and hires whoever he's going to hire to work on your appeal?

Brenda: No, no, no, I -- of course I'm going to go with you. And, you know, do whatever you think. I'd just like to be asked. I wouldn't mind you asking me. And I also wouldn't mind some sort of reassurance, you know, that I'm not going to --

Jason: Yeah, well, I'm not going to tell you --

Brenda: Get shot or die.

Jason: Okay, I have to tell you the reality of the situation. Anything can happen. What -- what do you want to hear? We could get shot, yes. Probably not. We're probably going to make it out of there. We're going to leave the country. We're going to wait somewhere until the real killer's found.

Brenda: All right, okay.

Jason: Okay? Brenda, I know how to do this.

Brenda: All right. Tell me what to do.

Jason: Okay. You're going to make a big distraction when I tell you to.

Brenda: Uh-huh.

Jason: Okay? We're not going to be alone. Sonny's going to do whatever it takes to set us free.

Sonny: Oh, man, I don't know why I do this stuff. I'm sorry if I scared you.

Carly: No. It's okay.

Sonny: It's a great way to help Jason -- just busting up my home, you know?

Carly: We can afford to replace everything that's been broken.

Sonny: He asked me to take you home.

Carly: He asked me to do the same thing for you. He wants us to take care of each other.

Sonny: Jason's on his way to prison for an order I gave him, and he's still looking out for us.

Carly: You know how he is.

Sonny: Yeah. I got to go. I'm going to -- I'm going to go to the police station. I got to see -- I got to see him.

Carly: Okay.

Sonny: You go ahead and you leave this stuff. Graciella will clean it up in the morning.

Carly: You know what? I'll take care of it. You picked up after me enough.

Sonny: All right. I won't be long, okay?

Carly: Wait, wait, wait. Wait. Here. Give this to Jason.

Sonny: 20 bucks?

Carly: Yeah, well, you know, he made a bet with me when we first got married that we'd be happy.

Sonny: Yeah, you told me.

Carly: He didn't think -- he said we'd be happy. When we first got married, I didn't know how. And I loved you. And I think you loved me, but we fought, drove each other crazy. He knew. Jason knew. And, you know, it's his way of proving it.

Sonny: You're choosing now to pay up?

Carly: A different bet. Yeah, because if you break him out of prison, then he's going to have to run.

Sonny: It's better than -- it's better than prison, you know.

Carly: But I might not have a chance to pay him back, and this way, I can.

Sonny: It's only temporary, okay?

Carly: You think we can find the real killer?

Sonny: I don't know. You know what? It doesn't matter because I am not going to wait for justice to triumph. I'm going to get Jason and Brenda out of this. All right? All right?

Carly: Okay.

Sonny: Okay.

Ric: Now, come on. The truth is that you wanted Jason Morgan in the hopes that his conviction would help you bring charges against Sonny Corinthos, right? And you twisted the evidence to support the scenario that both Jason and Brenda were guilty. You fed it to the jury, and it was a masterstroke, I'll give you that. But it all falls apart in the light of the facts.

Scott: Here are the facts -- Jason chloroformed the security guard. Brenda went after Alcazar with a knife. The conviction stands.

Ric: You know what? I don't mean to burst your bubble here, counselor, but as an officer of the court, it is your duty to present to the judge any new evidence that you have uncovered.

Scott: What evidence? A crank phone call?

Ric: You --

Scott: A piece of fabric?

Taggert: The judge -- the judge will be notified as soon the traces come back from forensics. He'll also be given a tape and a transcript.

Ric: Thank you.

[Knock on door]

Scott: Go away!

Ofc. Hernandez: I'm sorry. She said it was urgent --

Courtney: I need to see you, Mr. Baldwin. I have new evidence about the Alcazar case.

Scott: Of course you do. Why wouldn't you? You're Corinthos' sister. Who's next, his kid?

Ric: Well, you know what, Courtney? There's a lot of new evidence that's been uncovered recently. Why don't you tell us what you found?

Scott: Hey, this is not a clubhouse for amateur detectives, all right? So you and you, get out. And I would go, too.

Courtney: No, not until you hear me out.

Ric: You know what? Why don't you come with us, Courtney? I'm sure Lt. Taggert here would love to hear anything that you have to say.

Scott: I'm the district attorney. If there's any evidence, I'll hear it. So, you two get out. You, stay.

Scott: You know what, Taggert? You get out, too.

Taggert: Oh, no, I'm going to stay, just in case there's some evidence you want me to follow up on.

Courtney: There will be.

Scott: Well, you know what? We'll be the judge of that.

Courtney: Okay. Well, A.J. and Skye framed Jason and Brenda. They got this guy, Coleman, to find Ida Warren, and they paid her to lie, and I have proof.

Courtney's voice: Admit what you did!

A.J.'S voice: Fine. Okay, I was in on it with -- with Coleman and Skye, okay? Coleman found Ida. Skye and I paid her off, told her what to say.

Jason: And the worst part will be when the judge gives his sentence. Don't panic, don't struggle, don't let them see that you're planning to fight.

Brenda: Yeah, but we can't get the death penalty for this, can we?

Jason: It's possible they'd give it to me, not to you. Look, don't -- it doesn't matter, okay? We're going to be gone. Now, once you get in the van, I need you to watch me and focus on me because your adrenaline's going to be high, you're going to be nervous. You need to watch me because when I say go, you do exactly what you just said -- you're going to kick, you're going to scream, you're going -- you're going to freak out. Act like you're going to die if you don't get those cuffs off, okay? But once you start, do not stop. And in the commotion, if you're lucky enough to get your hands on a gun --

Brenda: Yeah, but I -- wait, wait, wait, I don't --

Jason: You're going to point it -- you're going to --

Brenda: I -- I can't even shoot anyone.

Jason: That's good because if -- if we kill a guard, it's really not going to matter if we -- if we killed Alcazar.

Brenda: Okay. I'd like this plan a lot better if, you know, maybe you could grab the gun --

Jason: I just --

Brenda: And --

Jason: That's -- I'm hoping that's how it's going to work. You just need to know what to do just in case.

Brenda: So you want me to just --

Jason: Scream.

Brenda: Scream and fight?

Jason: Right.

Brenda: All right, I can do that.

Jason: I know you can. You can do it.

Brenda: Did - did you know that I used to really go out of my way to be nice to you all the time because I just hated that you didn't like me? You know, you used to treat me like I was your worst enemy, and I had never done anything to hurt you. And now -- I blackmail you into marrying me. It's basically my fault you've been convicted of murder. And now you just say these nice things to me. I just don't understand.

Jason: Brenda, most things you do don't make sense to me. But I do understand why you went after Alcazar with that knife. He was going to hurt someone you love, and you fought. And when things went wrong, you owned up to it. You didn't run, you didn't -- you didn't testify against me, which would be the easy way out. You stood up. And I respect that.

Brenda: Am I supposed to feel better now that you respect me?

Jason: No.

Brenda: I do.

Mac: Brenda, we're ready to process you. Jason, a guard will be here in a few minutes to take you to your cell.

Brenda: All righty.

Jason: See you tomorrow.

Brenda: Bye-bye.

Mac: Go change into your denims, and we'll take you to your cell. You'll have a little privacy, though. You'll be the only one on your row.

Brenda: Thanks.

Mac: I'm really sorry this happened to you.

Sonny: Hey. Can I speak to her for a second alone?

Mac: You've already had your conversation.

Sonny: Mac --

Mac: I got two forms on that desk over there waiting for my signature. When I'm finished, so is the conversation.

Sonny: How you doing?

Brenda: Fine. I need you to find Jax. He's out of the country.

Sonny: Oh. Yeah, you're doing fine, okay? Everything's going to be all right. I'm going to get you and Jason out of here.

Jason: Is Carly here?

Sonny: No, she's home sweeping up what's left of the penthouse. I lost my temper.

Jason: I don't blame you.

Sonny: Yeah, well, you never do. You can make all the excuses you want, but we both know why you're in here.

Jason: I knew the risks. I accepted the job. It went wrong. That's the business we're in.

Sonny: You'd have been clear of that building before Alcazar went over the railing if you hadn't gone back in and got Brenda --

Jason: What was I going to do, Sonny? Technically, she's my wife.

Sonny: Exactly. You married a woman you can't stand because I asked you to, you know, take care of her.

Jason: I was trying to help. We're friends. You taught me that.

Sonny: What I taught you got you convicted of murder.

Jason: If you're trying to take the blame for this, you're saying that my decisions don't count. You've never treated me like I was brain-damaged, Sonny. Don't start now.

Sonny: You're not damaged. You're the best friend I ever had. But now you're convicted of murder. It's not your choice. Baldwin framed you.

Jason: Right. He did. That's why I need your help. Brenda and I want to run.

Sonny: I'm already working on it. My men are going to stop the van on the way to Pentonville, and they're going to get you and Brenda across the border into Canada. I'll have a passport, money, and a jet waiting for you wherever you decide you want to go.

Jason: Thank you.

Sonny: Please don't thank me.

Jason: You know, Carly once told me you don't have to thank the people who matter.

Sonny: Well, maybe she changed her mind because she wanted me to give you --

Jason: What?

Sonny: This.

Jason: Come on.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah.

Jason: Did she -- did she tell you that we had this -- this bet that everything would turn out okay?

Sonny: Now, you let my men take the risk. Your job is to get you and Brenda out of the country alive.

Jason: You have my word.

Sonny: This is not over. I will bring you back home. You have my word.

Felicia: Brenda?

Brenda: Hi.

Felicia: I've been working on your case.

Brenda: Oh. What's up?

Felicia: Well, I'm close to proving that Ida warren lied. But more important, Ric Lansing has got some new evidence that points to an unknown woman as the killer. He has her coat with Alcazar's blood on it. Would you happen to know who this woman is?

Brenda: Is it Skye?

Skye: Daddy! It's me, the prodigal. Scratch that. Jason's the prodigal. I'm unwanted. No fatted calf for me.

Skye: Well, here's to you, little brother, and your beautiful bride. You had it coming.

Scott: When we play that tape back to the part that you fast-forwarded through, what are we going to hear?

Courtney: That I was holding A.J. at gunpoint.

Taggert: Okay, that's enough. You don't want say anything --

Courtney: No, you know what? Go ahead. Arrest me. Arrest me if you want. You're going to have to investigate why I did it, and that's going to prove that I'm telling the truth.

Scott: I'm going to do you a favor and forget you were ever here. Now, give me the tape and get out.

Courtney: Yeah. Yeah, sure, so you can destroy it? You know, I think I'll take my chance with the press.

Taggert: No, you don't want to do that. You play it for the reporters, it's going to come out you holding A.J. at gunpoint. Then we're going to have to arrest you. We don't want to do that.

Courtney: Yeah, well, I do if it's the only way to prove that Jason and Brenda are innocent.

Taggert: You don't have to ruin your life if you want to reopen this case. It's already happening, okay? Felicia Jones came in here just now. She told us the same story about Ida Warren lying. Ric Lansing came in, presented some new evidence that points towards another killer.

Courtney: Why should I believe you?

Taggert: Because it's my job to find Luis Alcazar's killer, and that's what I'm going to do.

Courtney: What if you get fired first?

Taggert: I won't.

Scott: Taggert, that part about not getting fired -- don't be so sure.

Skye: What? No heartfelt greetings for your big sister? Or should I say partner?

Brenda: Skye blames me for her breakup with Jax. She was in the room the night Luis died. And she did lie and say that she saw me do it.

Felicia: Why would she confess if she's getting away with it?

Brenda: Wait -- she confessed?

Felicia: Ric Lansing met with that woman. He didn't actually see her face, but she managed to give him the bloodstained cloth to prove that she was the killer. Then she called Scott Baldwin's office and confessed. She said that she stabbed Alcazar in the stomach. Taggert said that the forensic report was sealed and no one would have known about that unless they were the actual killer.

Brenda: Then it wasn't Skye.

Felicia: Maybe she had an attack of conscience. Maybe she wanted you convicted and not her brother.

Brenda: No.

Felicia: And when Jason was found guilty --

Brenda: No. Skye doesn't care about Jason. And she hates me. She wouldn't confess to save us. I don't think Skye's the killer.

Max: Ric Lansing's here to see you.

Carly: Then send him away.

Ric: Carly, this is important.

Carly: Oh, really? Is it more important than you hating Alcazar, forgetting to tell me? Is it more important than being disqualified as Jason's lawyer and leaving him in the hands --

Ric: No, Carly --

Carly: Of unstable Alexis in his time of need?

Ric: Listen to me, all right? I have a way to make this right.

Sonny: Oh, this should be good. This have anything to do with your little meeting with your friend, Scotty Baldwin, in his office?

Ric: Yeah, as a matter of fact, it does.

Sonny: Because unless you confessed to killing Alcazar yourself, I'm not interested.

Ric: You know what? I didn't kill Alcazar. But tonight I met the woman who did.

Guard: Take your time. There's a problem with his paperwork. Can't move him to his cell yet.

Jason: Why'd you come back?

Courtney: A.J. admitted that he paid Ida to frame you and Brenda, and I got it on tape.

Jason: How?

Courtney: It doesn't matter --

Jason: No, it --

Courtney: Taggert believes me. They're going to reopen the investigation.

Jason: No, it does matter. You got to tell me how you did it. Tell me.

Courtney: You left your gun at the loft. Jason, A.J. deserved it, okay? He's a liar. He paid --

Jason: You promised to me you would never try to save me.

Courtney: Yeah, but I couldn't do nothing.

Jason: You had to. You had to, Courtney. That was the deal. The only way that we could be --

Courtney: We -- we are together, Jason, and that is why I had to go after A.J. and stop this.

Jason: You could've killed him. It could be you in here.

Courtney: Yeah, and what if it was? What would you do? Would you just stand around and let it happen if that's what I told you I wanted? I mean, no, you would -- you would fight for me, Jason. I know you would. So I get to fight for you, too.

Jason: You sound like Carly. Every time -- every time she would lie, every time she would blow my life apart or Michael's or her own or Sonny's -- you know, she does what she does because everything she does she thinks it's right. I can't -- I can't trust her. I love her. And I know no matter what, she's going to be on my side, but I don't -- I don't trust her to ask what I do. I don't trust her to keep my secrets, to understand that sometimes you just have to wait. I want to trust you. Courtney, I need to, or we've got nothing.

Courtney: What you're asking isn't fair.

Jason: You're right.

Jason: You're right, it's not.

Courtney: I can't leave you here, Jason, and I can't wait for you to come back. And I am trying to save you because I love you.

Taggert: Get me Judge Thomas.

Scott: You're going to be wearing a whistle for the rest of your career, Taggert.

Taggert: Don't you threaten me, all right? You are the one who stepped outside the law. You are the one who are violating people's rights, suppressing evidence. It stops right -- good evening, your honor, this is lt. Marcus Taggert. I'm calling on behalf of D.A. Baldwin. There's been some new developments in the Luis Alcazar murder.

A.J.: Skye, you shouldn't be here.

Skye: What? You afraid Mommy Monica's going to call the police and have me arrested for trespassing because she kicked me out for the 50,000th time?

A.J.: Don't underestimate her love for Jason, okay?

Skye: Kills you, doesn't it? Kills me. Jason's a bastard. I'm a bastard. So why is he the golden child? Why is he the heart of this family when I'm not even allowed in the house?

A.J.: Well, look, when you figure that out, fill me in. In the meantime, put down the drink and let me take you home, okay?

Skye: Oh, no, no, no, no. A.J., we are going to celebrate right here in this very house where we are not wanted. Don't you get it? We won. We have sent our little brother and his beautiful bride to prison for life.

A.J.: No, stop it. Stop it right now, okay? Look, you need to stay sober. This isn't over yet.

Skye: What, it's just occurring to you now that no one's going to let Jason and Brenda rot in prison, that Daddy and Granddaddy and Sonny and Jax will move heaven and earth to get them out?

A.J.: Skye, you want to keep Brenda and Jason where we put them, all right? You need to clean up your act and stick to your story.

Skye: Or what, little brother, fellow outcast, Quartermaine son who isn't Jason? If everyone gets their hearts' desire and Jason and Brenda go free, who do you think -- who do you think Scotty Baldwin's going to go after next, huh? And when he does, what do you think I'm going to tell him, huh? Better yet, what are you going to tell him?

A.J.: I had nothing to do with Alcazar's murder.

Skye: And? "My sister is innocent." Four very important words that you better practice over and over again. Because I'm telling you, if I'm going down, I'm taking you with me.

Carly: Well, are forensics running tests? Do they even know if it's Alcazar's blood?

Ric: They sent the fabric to the lab for testing.

Sonny: What if the evidence disappears, Ric? That's usually what happens --

Ric: If Scott -- look, I gave the evidence to Taggert myself.

Carly: Oh, great. Well, he hates Jason.

Ric: Yes, but he also fashions himself to be an honest cop. Now, my guess is that his conscience isn't going to allow Jason to be convicted at Brenda's expense.

Sonny: So you and Taggert are friends now?

Ric: He's -- I'm saying that he's going to do his job.

Sonny: Based on what? Your years of experience with the man? Huh? You guys are best friends now and you forgot to mention it -- along with everything else you neglected to explain? It's always a surprise with you. You drop out of the sky. But wait -- no, no, no. You used to work for Alcazar. You want to defend Jason. But you're a witness and even murder suspect, maybe. And now, all of a sudden, right, you, out of all the people involved in this case -- the killer decides to contact you. Why is that, Ric? She likes the cut of your suits? Your trustworthy face? Or maybe you're just in the wrong place at the right time? See, it goes back to where we started here. You're too damn good to be true.

Ric: You know what? Maybe you're right. Hmm? Maybe you're right. Maybe she -- she does like the cut of my suit. Maybe I'm the most accessible conduit of information, considering the fact I live above Kelly's and you live in a penthouse surrounded by armed guards. Obviously, she wants to keep her -- her identity a secret, right? Look, maybe she's too afraid. Maybe she's too afraid to come to you because she knows how smart you are and I'm the easier mark.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah. You're smart. And you're slick, Ric. But you know what? You make this up, you're going to be cutting your own throat.

Ric: Well, it's a good thing that I'm not. The killer called Scott's office tonight. She gave him the information that the police had kept from everybody else -- information, incidentally, that only the killer would know. Now, Jason and Brenda's lawyer is filing a 440 motion to vacate the sentence. If it is granted, both Jason and Brenda could go free.

Carly: Well, they have to grant it, right, if the evidence checks out?

Sonny: If the evidence checks out. If Ric is telling the truth. If the judge is fair. If Baldwin gets out of the way. A lot has to go right here for this to work!

Carly: Okay, well, it will. It has to.

Mac: Hi.

Brenda: Hi. Did you come to tell me I'm free to go?

Mac: I don't think Scott's going to make it that easy. We were cataloging your personal effects, and this started ringing. It's been ringing every five minutes since. Whoever is calling seems pretty determined.

Brenda: Thank you.

Mac: As far as I'm concerned, this never happened. I'll be back in 10 minutes.

Brenda: God.

[Phone rings]

Brenda: Jax? Hey. No, no -- I'm -- I'm in my cell. Mac brought me the phone. No, I'm fine. I'm okay. Listen to me. Listen to me, please. I don't want you to come here. We're sticking to the plan. I'm going to meet you. I know -- there's a whole bunch of new evidence. And even if that doesn't work out, Sonny and Jason have a plan and -- hello? Hello?

Courtney: I didn't mean to tell you here. I mean, you probably think that I'm pressuring you.

Jason: No, I don't.

Courtney: I told you that I've never been in love before and that what I felt for A.J. was mostly something that I made up. But now I know how love feels. I pulled that gun on A.J. because, Jason, I couldn't imagine spending my life without you. And if that means that you can't trust me --

Jason: We have to trust. We have to. Everything's not always what it seems. You aren't in my business, so you don't really know what's going on, like right now. I have a way out. And I'm going to take it. I just -- I just need your help. Will you just wait for me and stay quiet?

Courtney: I'll do whatever you need.

Jason: I am not going to be the reason that you hurt yourself. If you try to save me again, I'll walk away. I don't -- I don't ever want to walk away, Courtney. Please promise me you won't do this again.

Courtney: I promise. You have to promise me something, too -- that you're going to find a way to come back to me so we can be together again.

Jason: I promise.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Summer: What are you doing? Where have you been?

Jason: Carly just said something about new evidence.

Alexis: Your attorney will fill you in. It's not me anymore. This farce ends today, and I came back to make sure that happens.

Sonny: What did you have to do to get A.J. to admit the truth?

Jax: Did you kill Alcazar?
