>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Sonny: Something happened last night, and I need to tell you about it.
Faith: Give Mrs. Corinthos a night to remember.
Minister: We've come together to witness the joining together of this man and this woman in holy matrimony.
Alexis: [As Kristina] Keep the secret, or the secret dies here.
Carly: Happy Valentineís Day.
Sonny: Did you see Carly? She disappeared. I think something's wrong.
Alexis: [As Kristina] I told you to leave me alone.
Cameron: I'm only trying to help.
Alexis: No, you're scaring my sister, and I can't let you do that. And don't you pretend that you're trying to care about me, because you donít.
Cameron: You're wrong, Kristina. I care a great deal if you'll let me prove it to you.
Cameron: First let me have the knife. You're too smart to use it. It'll only make everything worse.
Alexis: No, you would have made things worse, Cameron, because you wouldn't leave anything alone. You keep following her around, you keep trying to get inside her head and figure out what's going on, and you know too much now. So you're going to cause trouble and I can't let that happen, so I have to stop you.
Cameron: The way you stopped Alcazar?
Alexis: That was poetic justice. He killed me, I killed him.
Jason: Why would she take off without saying anything? That's not like her.
Sonny: Well, that's what I'm telling you. It's opening night and she wouldn't miss it for the world. She left. Something is not right. Can you go find her?
Courtney: You are so incredibly arrogant.
Sonny: Could you not do this right now, Courtney?
Courtney: Did you know that the whole time he's been playing God with us, ordering you to give me up and trying to send me away, he's been cheating on Carly?
Carly: Hey, can I get some more nuts?
Carly: Happy Valentineís Day.
Carly: Can I get another?
Bartender: It's been a while since we've seen you around here. Why tonight?
Carly: Why not?
Bartender: I thought you were opening up that new club of yours.
Carly: I did. The Cellar's open, and it's a raging success.
Bartender: Well, good. I get to say I knew you when.
Man: The Cellar's your place? I read a write-up on that in the "Herald." Sounds like it's the place to check out.
Carly: Yeah, well, it is. Want to know why? Because it's my place, my club, my vision, and it was realized.
Man: So why aren't you there basking in the glory?
Carly: I can't because my husband is there, and he's got something important to tell me.
Man: That's a bad thing?
Carly: That depends on what side you're on. He's going to tell me we're through.
Minister: Brenda, will you take this man to be your husband, to live together in the covenant of marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him in sickness and in health, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to him as long as you both shall live?
Brenda: I will.
Minister: Jax, will you take this woman to be your wife, to live together in the covenant of marriage? Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her in sickness and in health, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to her as long as you both shall live?
Brenda: What'd you say?
Jax: I can't marry you, Brenda. Not when your heart belongs to someone else.
Brenda: Where is this coming from? I don't --
Jax: I know that you were kissing Sonny last night on the pier.
Brenda: Yes. I was. But it's not what you think.
Jax: What I think is that you were making an attempt to hide your feelings for Sonny, in deference to me, if nothing else. Instead, you put it on public display. I waited for you to tell me. And then I thought, you know what, maybe it's not so bad. Maybe -- maybe I can pretend it didn't happen. Maybe I can convince myself that it didn't matter and maybe you planned to explain it all to me. But you havenít. And just now as I stood here in front of you, I realize that I can't marry you. I'm sorry, but I don't want to be second best. I don't want to be your fallback position. You'd only resent me for that, anyway.
Brenda: Jax --
Jax: Look, I can't love you the way you want -- the constant drama that you and Sonny crave. I'm sorry; I've been a part of this for too long.
Brenda: Jax, if you would have asked me about this before we walked out here in front of everybody, I would have told you that you're wrong about what happened between Sonny and I. I didn't go to him. I bumped into him, and I said good-bye. And I told him that I -- that I hoped he'd be as happy as I am with you. See, I'm marrying you with an undivided heart.
Brenda: Well, maybe you're not really interested in the truth.
Brenda: I think it's good that you don't want to marry me. It's fine. Because after this, I don't want to marry you, either.
Brenda: You sure you want to do this here?
Jax: This is the last place I wanted to do it. I waited all night and all morning for you to say something. But you didn't say a word. You were going to marry me and then, what, have an affair with Sonny --
Brenda: I'm not going to deny that I love Sonny, and I'm sorry that I'm not capable of shutting my heart off just because I feel betrayed or hurt by someone I love. But do you really think that I would come up here and say my vows to you if I didn't mean them, if I couldn't keep them?
Jax: Until -- until the next time Sonny comes to you and he tests your feelings once again.
Brenda: You could've come to me this morning, and you could've confronted me about this, or you could've simply said that you changed your mind, but you didnít.
Jax: So could you.
Brenda: No, you let me walk down this aisle and let me believe -- when you know how hard that is for me -- you let me stand up here. You let me say my vows, knowing that this has happened to me before and knowing what that did to me. I mean, what is wrong with you? Have you really changed that much? Have we really changed that much?
Jax: No, you haven't changed, Brenda.
Brenda: Yes. I have changed. This is my fault. Maybe I was just gone for too long and it just destroyed something between us that can't ever be fixed. I will not be in any kind of a relationship with someone who I can't trust.
Jax: That's my point, exactly.
Brenda: And you know that you could have ended this in a way that respected what we meant to each other. And you didn't. So there you go. That's it. You made your choice. Bye.
Sonny: So that's what this is about? Carly thinks that I've been unfaithful?
Courtney: Carly saw you kissing Brenda on the pier. So what happened, Sonny? You and Brenda got so hot for each other, you know, with your big, scary love, you couldn't find someplace private?
Sonny: No, it wasn't like that.
Courtney: God, you are such a hypocrite. Telling Jason to leave me alone so he won't hurt me. What about the way that you're hurting your own wife?
Sonny: Okay, see, you don't know what you're talking about. See, Carly misinterpreted what she saw.
Jason: Hold on. Tell me what's going on. Were you kissing Brenda or not?
Sonny: Yeah, I kissed her.
Carly: And it was no ordinary kiss. It was -- it was a reunion.
Man: You ever hear the expression "turnabout's fair play"? See, your old man cheats on you, you get to return the favor.
Carly: Get off of me, all right? What do you think I am, a slut? I love my husband. Get off me. What are you doing? Get off me!
Man: Listen, I'm taking you outside.
Carly: No, I don't want to go anywhere!
Man: You look like you could use some fresh --
Ric: Hey, hey! Hey, you heard the lady! She said she doesn't want to go.
Cameron: Did Alcazar threaten the baby?
Alexis: [As Kristina] You know the answer to that. He's the reason that she was -- she was born too early. I mean, he got my sister all upset and then he left her in the snow to die when she went into labor. And then, not only that, he went to the hospital. He went to the hospital because he was going to hurt her and he was going to hurt the baby, and I couldn't let that happen.
Cameron: It was your job to stop him?
Alexis: Protecting my sister is why I'm here. I'm so surprised that you don't get that by now, Cameron. I have to do the things that she's afraid to do. And above all else, I have to protect the baby. I have to protect the baby, which is why I have to get rid of you!
Cameron: Let's not be precipitous. I'm really quite harmless.
Alexis: You're going to tell. You're going to tell, Cameron. I know you are. You're going to tell about Alcazar, and then they're going to take the baby away from Alexis. They're going to give Kristina -- they're going to give her to somebody that we don't even know, and I can't let that happen! I can't let that happen! Ow.
Cameron: Fair warning, Kristina. I'll take on all comers to keep Alexis intact, including you.
Cameron: This isn't like the night with Alcazar. All my faculties are fully engaged. I'm not on a balcony, not distracted by a bunch of people who mean to do me harm. So you can stop struggling.
Cameron: That's better. And as long as we're here, mind answering a few questions?
Alexis: [As Kristina] You're going to ask them. I don't have to answer.
Cameron: How did the murder happen?
Alexis: There was a knife on the floor. I picked it up; I walked out to the terrace. I stabbed him, he backed up, he fell over the railing. That's when I got Alexis out of there. I left, and that's when Alexis found the body.
Cameron: Why did you contact Ric Lansing?
Alexis: Because I knew that Alexis would never want Jason, Brenda, or anyone else to pay for a crime that they didn't commit, and I was wrong. I should have just left things the way that they were, but I was afraid that she would be upset with me. I was afraid that she would be ashamed of me. And you know what, it probably all would've worked out fine if you hadn't just been around asking questions and asking questions and wanting answers, and I hope the answers are worth what it's going to cost you.
Cameron: Do you really want to kill me, Kristina?
Alexis: I don't have any choice, Cameron.
Cameron: Sure you do. Here, let me help.
Alexis: Nobody can help her but me!
Cameron: Think about what Alexis would want. We both know what that is. She would want you to let me help. Can you do that, Kristina? Can you trust me?
Alexis: [As herself] What?
Alexis: Oh, God. Oh, please tell me that I didn't hurt you.
Cameron: No, I'm fine. But you need to know Kristina can and will do anything to protect you, including murder.
Jax: I apologize for keeping you all here while Brenda and I resolved our situation. Elton Herbert has put on a beautiful reception for everyone, so I ask you to please stay, drink some champagne, rehash the events. I know that you all -- that you all came here today because you want the best for me and Brenda. And as awkward as it may seem at the moment, this appears to be it.
Brenda: What are you doing here?
Skye: Oh, hello. Such a beautiful dress, and it looked so good on you. It's such a shame it went to waste.
Brenda: How'd you get in here?
Skye: Oh, my family owns the hotel, remember?
Brenda: Well, enjoy the room.
Skye: You know, it is so ironic. I mean, my whole life I've been called selfish and destructive, yet I can't hold a candle to you. No, you stole Jax, and you didn't even want him. So tell me, what was the point of destroying my marriage when you knew you were going back to Sonny all along? Well, I guess what goes around really does come around. Getting slammed at the altar is exactly what you deserve.
Brenda: You know, I really do love Jax. Which means that I do want him to be happy even if it's not with me. So I hope that he finds someone who he can share his life with, someone he can trust. I can guarantee you that won't be you.
Sonny: What happened with Brenda is a one-time thing. I have not been unfaithful to Carly, and I am not leaving her.
Courtney: So, what, you think it's better to just stay with Carly and keep breaking her heart over and over again? Why don't you just admit, Sonny, that love is just a word to you? You don't feel it. That's why it was so easy for you to take it away from Jason and me.
Jason: All right, Courtney, I want you to go.
Courtney: I will not.
Jason: Yes, you will. You and everybody else. Hey, Charlie, that's it. The club is closed. That's it, it's closed. Everyone goes -- staff, guests. Everyone, out! Max, Marco, help him.
Charlie: All right, you heard the man. Everybody out!
Max: Come on, guys.
Charlie: Come on.
Marco: Get, let's go.
Jason: I'm just asking you to leave.
Courtney: I don't understand.
Jason: I need to speak to Sonny alone.
Courtney: If you need anything, call me. Or don't.
Jason: What the hell are you thinking?
Ric: Get your hands off her.
Man: Look, she came on to me, pal.
Carly: Oh -- I couldn't make him go away. Oh, I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm so dizzy. I hardly had anything to drink.
Ric: You know what, why don't you let me take you home?
Carly: Oh, no, no, no, I can't see Sonny. I'm not -- I'll call Jason. Jason will take care of me. No, no, what are you -- why did you do that?
Ric: Okay? Don't worry, I'll call Jason.
Carly: Why -- why are we -- why are we here? What -- what are you doing? Where's Jason?
Ric: Just sit down, sit down.
Carly: Did you call him? Is he coming to get me?
Ric: Hey, everything's all right. Don't worry, okay? I called him. He's on his way.
Carly: I can't live with Jason because it's going to hurt Courtney. And I can't live across the hall from Brenda and Sonny, while that witch lives my life.
Ric: Wait, Sonny's -- Sonny's leaving you for Brenda?
Carly: Uh, yeah. Any fool could've seen it. I saw it.
Ric: Carly, are you sure?
Carly: Well, did you hear me? I said that I saw it. And then he stays out all night. Now he's got something important to tell me. You connect the dots.
Jason: You know, I would tell anyone who would listen to me how much you've given me. But I gave you something, too. Carly and Michael were my family, and I turned them over to you because I trusted that you could make them happier than I ever could. I trusted that you would love Carly and that you would honor her.
Sonny: I do.
Jason: You think it honors Carly kissing Brenda in public?
Sonny: It wasn't like that! Courtney and Carly -- I guess they misinterpreted a situation that they didn't understand. You're supposed to because you know me.
Jason: I understand, Sonny. Let's be honest.
Jason: You've been lying to Carly ever since Brenda came back.
Sonny: Okay, now I'm a liar. I'm a liar now.
Jason: Well, haven't you been?
Jason: Something's going on. I don't know what it is, but Carly came to me right before I married Brenda, crying, saying, "Jason, he's going to leave me for her." I said, "No, Carly, he's not. He doesn't love her. He loves you. Trust me"!
Sonny: I never lie! I love my wife!
Jason: How could you -- how could you let this happen?
Sonny: I don't seek out Brenda. You don't understand what happened. I'm going to tell you what happened.
Jason: Tell me.
Sonny: Okay. I was on the docks. I'm fighting with Carly. She walks away. I turn around. There's Brenda. One thing leads to another. She comes to me. We kiss. Now, the reason I kissed her is because I needed to find out for myself, once and for all, and I did. It's over. And the fact that Carly saw me kissing Brenda kills me inside.
Jason: Well, I think that's going to be a little hard for Carly to grasp right now.
Sonny: Okay, wait a minute. She's my wife. I hurt her. I have to fix it.
Jason: Fine. Go fix it. I'll wait here in case she comes back.
Sonny: Okay, you know what? I didn't betray your trust. Your instincts were 100% right. I love my wife even more than she loves me.
Ned: Reconsidering your options?
Jax: You're still here. I thought you left with the rest of the family.
Ned: Well, I remembered that I have something that belongs to you.
Jax: I'm starting to think this is cursed.
Ned: Why is that?
Jax: You know, because this is the ring to my first marriage to Brenda. The one -- the one that turned out to be not legal. I kept it all these years. I didn't throw it away until the night I married Skye.
Ned: I remember.
Ned: And then you said something about letting fate take it.
Jax: Yeah, that's right. It took it straight to Brenda, amazingly enough.
Ned: I know how much you love her, Jax. So why -- why are you giving up now?
Jax: You -- you heard what I said, Ned, right? You were here. You heard what I said.
Jax: Carly came to me last night devastated. She told me what she'd seen, what Brenda already admitted to -- that she was kissing Sonny. You know, I waited for her to tell me. I waited for her to tell me, and she pretended like nothing happened, and that scared me, Ned. It scared me. I realized right then and there that there is -- there's no trust. There's no trust left, and you can't build a future without trust.
Ned: You heard what she said. She's done with Sonny.
Jax: I'm not going to analyze this too much. I did the right thing.
Ned: You're walking away from the love of your life.
Jax: There's nothing else I can do.
Alexis: Would you please pick that up and get rid of it?
Cameron: Alexis, listen to me.
Alexis: No, no, no. Cameron, please, I cannot deal with this right now. Please.
Cameron: You have to deal with it now, Alexis. You have to understand what your alter is doing so that we can treat your condition and achieve integration.
Cameron: Kristina considers herself your protector. She emerges when you feel that you or child have been threatened.
Alexis: I don't have any idea what you're talking about, Cameron.
Cameron: Alexis, you need to brace yourself. Kristina confessed to killing Luis Alcazar.
Alexis: What do I do?
Cameron: You have an illness, Alexis. We'll treat it.
Alexis: I killed -- I killed a man, and when they find out, they're going to take my baby.
Cameron: The more panicked you get, the more likelihood that Kristina will re-emerge. She's designated herself your protector, remember? She takes action when you feel powerless, and clearly, she's not bound by your moral code. Now, you have to actively work at staying calm and rational, or God knows what else could happen.
Alexis: How did this happen? How did this happen? What, are you telling me that my mind is broken?
Cameron: No, not broken. Split.
Alexis: I killed a man!
Cameron: No, not you.
Alexis: Not me? What, the person who was inhabiting my body? Do you really expect a jury to believe that? Do you know how hard that's going to be to sell to a jury or a social worker? I have a daughter! I can't -- please, please, you can't tell anybody. You can't tell anybody what I did. Please, please, help me. Please.
Skye: Sorry. You just missed her. My guess is she's on her way over to Sonny's, so if you want to catch her, you'd better hurry up. That is, if you changed your mind.
Brenda: What are you doing here? I thought you'd be at Carly's club opening.
Sonny: Change of plans.
Sonny: Aren't you supposed to be getting married?
Brenda: Yeah, change of plans. Jax found out that we were kissing last night, and he got a little upset.
Sonny: Well, you should've just told him we were saying good-bye.
Brenda: Yeah, I told him that. He didn't believe me. You can't really blame him. I've had a hard time staying away from you in the past.
Sonny: I'm sorry. You okay?
Brenda: Yeah, I'm all right. I love him. I was walking down the aisle, and I really thought I was going to be happy forever.
Sonny: Wait a minute. You were walking down the aisle?
Sonny: He left you at the altar?
Brenda: Yeah, well, at least he showed up and told me the truth to my face.
Brenda: We just lost trust. Without trust, love means nothing.
Carly: I don't know why I feel like this. I've never felt like this before.
Ric: You said you had very little to drink?
Carly: Yeah. One, maybe. Maybe two drinks -- I don't know.
Ric: All right, you know what? You need to rest.
Carly: Did you call Jason? Did you give him the right address?
Ric: Yeah, of course I did. He'll be here any minute.
Carly: You know what? Jason doesn't like you. He thinks you're smooth and always with an angle. And you know what? The joke's on you because -- because Sonny is never, ever going to like you. See, you spent too much time trying to suck up to the wrong woman. You should've been trying to score points with Brenda. I'm waiting for Jason in the parking lot.
Ric: You know what? You know what, Carly?
Ric: I said you need to rest.
Carly: I know, but Jason's coming to get me.
Ric: Shh, shh.
Alexis: Thank you.
Cameron: The rest of this won't be so easily solved.
Alexis: Are you going to keep my secret?
Cameron: Alexis, your alter committed a murder. We've got to get you into intensive therapy so we can integrate these personalities.
Alexis: None of which will matter if I lose my baby. I -- I know that this is a lot to ask, and I know that it's horribly unfair. But please don't turn me in. I'm an excellent attorney. I would never let anyone else be acquitted for something that they didn't do. And if I can't accomplish that, then you can step forward and you can do whatever you want.
Cameron: No one's been arrested yet. We still have some time.
Alexis: Please don't let me lose my baby.
Cameron: We'll find a way. You're not going to lose your baby, Alexis, or yourself.
Cameron: I won't let that happen.
Courtney: I -- I took a chance that you'd still be here. Is Carly coming back to meet you?
Jason: No, Sonny went to look for her. I'm just waiting here in case she comes back.
Courtney: Well, I'd like to stay here with you.
Courtney: Does it hurt you to see me, Jason? Because it hurts me to see you, to know that you're in so much pain, and I can't hold you or make you feel better.
Jason: Courtney, just -- just go.
Courtney: God, Jason. You're the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I'm not going to just let that go. And I realize that I may be fighting you every step of the way, and I know that there will be times when one of us will be hurt and angry, but I also know it'll be worth it because I'll be fighting for us.
Courtney: I love you, Jason.
Jax: I can understand why you'd enjoy this moment. You believe that I couldn't make our marriage work because of Brenda, and now my marriage to Brenda is over before it even began. You want a drink? Because I'm sure going to have one.
Skye: Jax, I'm sorry. I don't mean to gloat. I don't. Believe it or not, I only wanted you to be happy. Just trying to figure it all out for everyone's sake, you know, so we can finally put it behind us.
Jax: Well, when you figure it out, you be sure to let me know.
Skye: God. It's all so terrible, so sad, and ironic. All these years, you carried the mythical Brenda in your heart, the woman against whom all others were measured and found lacking. And then Brenda returns, and even she can't fit the bill. You have very high standards, Jax. I certainly couldn't meet them. It's comforting to know Brenda couldn't, either.
Sonny: I -- you know what? I'm sorry Jax hurt you. I can't stick around. I got to find Carly.
Brenda: Of course. I'm going to stay here and wait for Jason, unless you think that's going to be a problem for him or maybe for you guys.
Sonny: No, no, it shouldn't be a problem. Uh-uh. No.
Brenda: Everything okay with Carly?
Sonny: She -- she saw us together and decided that I've been lying to her about my feelings for you from the start.
Brenda: Yeah, well, that -- that explains a lot. Sorry about that.
Sonny: She disappeared from the club, and I've been looking for her. My men are trying to find her. Nobody can find her. I guess she's out there hiding somewhere, thinking that I'm going to tell her I don't want to see her anymore.
Brenda: You really love her.
Sonny: Carly's my life.
Brenda: Well, you'd better go find her so you can tell her that. Everything will be okay.
Brenda: See you.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Skye: Leaving so soon?
Jax: You're out to ruin Sonny Corinthos, Edward, and I want in.
Courtney: You should give Carly a little time and let her get in touch with you first.
Jason: She could be in trouble.
Sonny: Where is my wife?
Faith: Back off.
