Emily's voice: When you leave without a warning, you miss your last chance to say "I love you."
Nikolas: Emily -- Emily --
Nikolas: Come on, you can breathe. Breathe for me, please. Will you just -- please, all you got to do is breathe. One breath, your heart will start beating, okay?
Nikolas: One, two, three --
Nikolas: No, you can't -- you can't leave me!
Sonny: It's clear.
Kate: Not that I mind a little privacy, but why exactly did we leave Ric's room?
Sonny: There's no reason to be in the room. Ric was getting stronger.
Kate: And that's the only reason?
Sonny: I was not comfortable in that room, okay? There was a lot of old hate and pain. I don't need any distractions. Trevor Lansing is a business problem that I have to figure out how to get rid of. And -- and Ric is the D.A., and all he wants to do is come after me -- you know that.
Kate: Yeah, Ric is also your brother, Sonny. Trevor hurt your mother deeply years ago and indirectly hurt you.
Sonny: You want to know the truth? You were involved with Trevor. That's what I hate the most, Kate.
Kate: Years ago, Sonny.
Sonny: Sometimes emotions cloud your judgment. I have to be clear, especially with what's going on right now.
Kate: But you have to feel something sometime.
Sonny: Sometimes in my line of work, when you feel something, it could get us both killed.
Lulu: Oh, God, you scared me half to death.
Johnny: What are you doing out here all by yourself? Where's Logan?
Lulu: He went to go find Anthony.
Johnny: And left you here alone?
Lulu: He's trying to protect me.
Johnny: What, by leaving you with no way to defend yourself?
Lulu: In case you missed it, I am still alive.
Johnny: The sun ain't up yet.
Lulu: Well, I don't care if your father gives me until sunrise to live. Someone is probably going to find him by morning anyway.
Johnny: My father enjoys killing. It's what he does best, and once he gets started, he's almost impossible to stop.
Jason: Have you seen Anthony?
Carly: No. We've been a little distracted. We thought we lost Jax in the storm.
Jax: Jerry and I got Alexis to safety, but -- well, we wrecked the boat on the way back.
Jason: Well, did you tell the cops what's happening here?
Jax: Police aren't allowing any rescue crews out of the harbor.
Jason: What happened to you?
Jerry: Oh, it's just an -- an old injury acting up.
Carly: Well, at least the gunmen aren't in the house, but that doesn't make much sense. If they wanted to get Anthony, why don't they just come in here and grab him?
Jason: The Zaccharas don't want to risk a formal investigation.
Jason: What -- what happened here? Is she still breathing?
Nikolas: No, no, she's okay. She's just resting right now, Jason, she's okay.
Jason: Nikolas, listen to me. She's -- she's got no pulse, okay?
Nikolas: No, no, no, she -- she's just resting!
Jason: Listen to me, she's not -- she's not breathing! You need to give her to me right now --
Nikolas: As long as I hold her like this --
Jason: Nikolas --
Nikolas: She'll be okay. As long as I hold her like this, she'll be okay.
Jason: Nikolas, I -- listen to me, I -- I need to start C.P.R.
Nikolas: No. She'll come back.
Carly: Jason -- Jason --
Nikolas: Jason -- Jason, she'll come back.
Carly: Give me a second.
Nikolas: She'll come back to me. She'll come back.
Carly: Nikolas --
Nikolas: You'll come back.
Carly: I need --
Nikolas: You'll come back to me.
Carly: To take her pulse.
Nikolas: Carly, she's -- she's just dreaming right now. Look -- look, see? See, she's just dreaming right now.
Carly: I'm just going to hold her hand, okay?
Nikolas: She's okay, she's okay, she's just dreaming.
Nikolas: She'll come back to me. See, we -- we always find our way back to each other.
Jason: Okay, listen -- listen to me. Nikolas, you -- you need to -- you need to tell me what happened, okay? How -- how did you get loose? How did -- why was -- why was Emily even here with you? Why? Who did -- who did it, Nikolas? Who did this?
Jerry: Don't be an idiot -- go after your wife.
Jax: No, she's fine, she's fine. She's with Jason, he'll protect her. God, you look like hell.
Jerry: Thank you. Now, go.
Jax: You can barely breathe, Jerry, you'd be no match for Anthony Zacchara.
Jerry: Don't worry, I'm an excellent shot.
Jax: That's debatable.
Jerry: Oh, come on, I didn't crash this party not to protect you or to keep you away from Carly when the killers were on the loose. So why don't you go? You've done enough damage on your marriage looking after me. Go!
Jason: Nikolas had some kind of, uh, rage attack earlier, and -- and we fought.
Carly: Did you put that bruise on his face?
Jason: Look, I don't know -- I don't think so. I tied him to the chair, I took Emily down to the stables, and when I came back, Nikolas was gone. Carly, I thought -- I thought Emily was safe. I didn't even know when she came back.
Carly: I'm so sorry, Jason, I'm so sorry.
Jax: Zacchara do this?
Carly: He had to. Nikolas has a bruise on his face. Zacchara must've knocked Nikolas out and killed Emily.
Jason: Nikolas? You got to tell me who did this. How -- how did -- how did you get loose? You need to tell me what happened.
Carly: Jason --
Jason: You need to tell me what happened!
Carly: Jason -- Jason, stop it. Look, Nikolas is in shock, he's- he's not going to talk to you right now. You have to find Patrick or Robin and get something from them.
Jason: No, no, I'm going to -- I'm going to take care of it myself.
Sonny: You remember when I told you that looking at Anthony Zacchara was like seeing myself in 20 years?
Kate: Sonny --
Sonny: No, no --
Kate: Sonny --
Kate: I've known you a very long time. You are not a violent madman just waiting to happen. You're bipolar. It's a brain chemistry -- nothing more, nothing less. It's manageable if you take care of yourself, take your meds.
Sonny: I -- all right, but it's -- it's not my illness that concerns me. It's what do, it's -- it's what I call "the business." It's actually my life, who I am. The money, the fancy houses, the private island, the power when I walk on the docks and I know that they're mine. The best tables at restaurants, knowing what I do influences lives that I'll never see.
Kate: I lived a version of that life. And while the differences may be obvious, I certainly understand the attraction. I loved it, I -- I still do.
Sonny: In my business, you fight real hard to get what you want. You've earned that respect and you fight to keep it -- kill or be killed. But beyond that, I have done some things in anger that I'll never be able to take back.
Kate: None of that means you're like Anthony Zacchara.
Sonny: Not yet, but if it keeps going, if the conditions are right, if I'm pushed too far Ė
Lulu: How do you know your father enjoys killing?
Johnny: The police report says my mother was shot and killed during a robbery. Trevor made sure no one ever found out what really happened. Afterwards, my life got back to normal, in a way. I went to school, I played baseball, hockey -- I even had friends, but they never came to the house. Over the years, my father became sicker. He shot one of his guards, a guy he trusted -- he'd worked for my father for years -- over nothing. Then he started to threaten to kill me. When I was 15, my father pulled me out of school, so I ran away. I went to live with my mother's cousin in Ohio. A normal guy -- an accountant with a wife and two kids. One night, my father showed up and killed all of them.
Lulu: Oh, my God.
Johnny: I never ran away again -- till now. Then he came after me. I should've known. I should've never stopped and offered you a ride, but I swear to you, Lulu, you won't be the one that dies at sunrise.
Jason: Elizabeth, it's me!
Elizabeth: Jason, what happened?
Jason: We -- we got to get up to the main house, Nikolas needs our help.
Elizabeth: Nikolas -- did Zacchara hurt him?
Jason: It's Emily. She -- she died.
Elizabeth: Jason, what do you mean, "Emily died"?
Jason: I -- I heard Nikolas screaming Emily's name. I went to the ballroom, and -- and he was holding her. She -- she wasn't moving, and I tried to take her away, but Nikolas wouldn't let go, but it didn't matter because Emily was already gone at that point.
Elizabeth: Jase, she probably -- she's in shock or she's unconscious, she's not dead --
Jason: She was strangled, Elizabeth. She's not breathing. There's no pulse, she's --
Elizabeth: No -- no.
Jason: Look, if you can't handle this, Nadine, will you -- will you help us, please?
Nadine: Absolutely, whatever you need.
Spinelli: I'll stay here with --
Elizabeth: What about Nikolas? Did -- did Zacchara hurt him?
Jason: No. Nikolas won't let go of Emily. Carly thinks he needs to be sedated.
Elizabeth: I can -- I can find something here.
Nadine: Are -- are you sure you don't want me to do it?
Elizabeth: No, I'll do it. Let me take care of Nikolas. Emily would want me to.
Anthony: Nice shot! Now it's my turn! Show yourself, let's see if I miss!
Anthony: Is that you, Johnny? Come out and face me! You know how I hate it when you run away!
Lulu: You've been a prisoner your whole life?
Johnny: I'd be free if I killed him. If I'd walked into that room years ago and pulled the trigger, a lot of innocent people would still be alive.
Lulu: But you pulled the trigger tonight.
Johnny: Even then, a part of me was relieved when that gun wasn't loaded. Because no matter what my father does, is it right to kill someone for being insane?
Lulu: Does he ever come out of it, is he ever normal?
Johnny: He used to be, part of the time. Who knows if he'd gotten help years ago, but he's beyond help.
Lulu: My mother's in a mental hospital. She stares out a window all day and she doesn't talk, and the doctors don't think she can hear anything, either.
Johnny: I didn't know.
Lulu: But she revered for a little while, thanks to this experimental drug. It didn't last, but I can't help hoping that she'll come back. She'll be my mom, even if it's for a short time. So I understand -- you'll always want your dad, but --
Logan: Of course -- what are you doing here? What happened to looking for your father, huh?
Kate: If you're truly concerned that you'll end up like Anthony Zacchara, why don't you just retire?
Sonny: I tried years ago -- I disappeared on my wedding day, left my bride at the altar. I broke her heart to protect her from the violence that surrounds me, so I went, hid out on an island in the Caribbean. And I drank myself to oblivion waiting for my enemies to show up.
Kate: So leaving the business isn't an option?
Sonny: It's what I do, you know? I'm as ambitious now as I ever was, and where I am now, I'm a lot further than I ever imagined I would be.
Kate: Sonny, did it ever occur to you that you might be just as successful legally?
Sonny: I like what I do. I mean, you know, I know it's wrong, but I'm willing to, you know, do everything I can to get what I want, and I -- I do everything in my heart to protect the people who are around me. I -- I don't want to -- I don't want to stop, I don't -- whatever it costs.
Kate: Just for the record, should you ever decide that it's too dangerous for us to be together, I would prefer that you just told me instead of breaking my heart for my own good.
Sonny: Whoa --
Carly: Can you carry her over here?
Jax: I don't think he's going to let her go.
Carly: Can't leave her there. Hey, Nikolas?
Carly: Can Jax help you carry Emily over to the bench?
Nikolas: Oh, no, thanks, we're fine, we're fine. She's just resting right now, we're -- we're okay.
Carly: What happened, Nikolas?
Carly: How'd you get that bruise on your face?
Nikolas: You know she wanted to cancel the ball? Or, well, at least -- at least postpone it? Because -- because I -- I haven't really been feeling that well, you know? And she was really concerned about that. But -- but I insisted.
Nikolas: I insisted. I just wanted to make you happy, that's all. That's all I really wanted, baby. Okay. Okay. It's time for you to wake up now, will you, please? Will you please just wake up for me now? Okay.
Carly: He's not going to let her go.
Nikolas: Will you please just wake up for me now? I promised -- and I will love you forever. And I will. I will. I will die for you, and you know that.
Nikolas: Oh, Elizabeth, hi. Can you -- can you help her?
Elizabeth: I brought you some medicine.
Nikolas: Oh, good, good. See -- see? She brought you something to help you wake up, see? She can help you. Thank you.
Jax: I need to check on Jerry, he's pretty badly hurt.
Carly: I want to come with you.
Jax: No, no, no, you stay here, you're safer here.
Carly: I almost lost you once tonight. After all that's happened, I want to stay with you.
Jax: Okay, come on.
Elizabeth: Nikolas? Hey, it'll be easier for me to help Emily if you let go of her, okay?
Nikolas: No, no, no. As long as she's here with me like this, it'll be okay, she'll be okay. She'll be all right, just please --
Jason: What is it?
Elizabeth: It's a horse tranquilizer.
Jason: We got -- we got to do something.
Elizabeth: I'm going to need your help, okay?
Jason: Hey, Nikolas? Nikolas --
Jason: Let me take care of my sister, okay?
Nikolas: No, no --
Jason: Let me take care --
Nikolas: No, no -- no, no --
Sonny: Where are you hit?
Jerry: I'm not, actually. Call it karma -- Nikolas stabbed me two weeks ago, and I think the wound has reopened. And I also think I'm bleeding internally.
Sonny: Why are you walking around?
Jerry: Well, Anthony Zacchara came after me in the entryway and I shot at him, but I ran out of ammunition, which is quite embarrassing. And Anthony seemed to be enjoying himself very much.
Kate: How can we help you?
Jerry: You can leave. While I eluded Anthony Zacchara, I'm clearly not at the top of my game, and he might show up, or he might be going down to the ballroom to admire his handiwork.
Sonny: What does that mean?
Jerry: Oh, I was with Jax and Carly and Jason, of all people, and we heard Nikolas scream Emily's name all the way from the ballroom. They left and they didn't return, which makes me believe that Emily's in a very bad way.
Johnny: Did you stop my father? Did you save us all?
Logan: Why, are you worried about your daddy?
Johnny: The plan was for you to protect Lulu.
Logan: Yeah, well, I plan on it, so you can take off now, all right?
Lulu: Okay, look, I get that you guys hate each other, and -- and I don't blame you, but I've learned a lot tonight, especially about who I can trust, and that's you, Logan, but that's also Johnny. So from now on, I'll -- I'll play this your way. I'll do whatever you want.
Nadine: Did you know Emily very well?
Spinelli: Well, I and the devoted sis-- we had a passing acquaintance, but Emily was deeply loved by Stone Cold.
Nadine: I'm sure.
Spinelli: Do not be deceived by his uncaring manner. Stone Cold is grieving for his lost little sister.
Nadine: One of the first things they teach you in medicine is to detach, or at least put your feelings on hold until you finish the job.
Spinelli: Well, that is the Stone Cold way. But a precious life has been taken tonight, and Stone Cold will not rest until Emily's killer is hunted down.
Nadine: Don't take this the wrong way. You seem like such a smart and compassionate and totally amazing guy.
Spinelli: How could I take such a welcome compliment in the wrong way?
Nadine: I just don't understand how vengeance-dude Jason can be your best friend.
Jax: Careful, it could be a ruse.
Carly: He's gone.
Jax: Zacchara or the gunmen must've come through here -- those are the shots we heard. Jerry was in no condition to fight anyone off; I should never have left him.
Carly: If Jerry were killed, his body would still be here. And if he were in that bad of shape, he wouldn't be able to get very far.
Jax: What are you saying -- that he wasn't really hurt?
Carly: It's possible.
Carly: What if he were milking it, Jax?
Jax: Why would he do that?
Carly: Why do you think?
Jax: So he could ditch me and go after Zacchara on his own. Of course. Well, maybe Jerry found Zacchara after all.
Sonny: Come here. We're going to the ballroom.
Kate: No, you should go, Sonny. I'm going to stay here --
Jerry: That's completely -- that's completely unnecessary.
Kate: Look, I can't leave him like this.
Jerry: Of course you can. Go.
Sonny: You're not going to be safe here.
Kate: Jerry has a gun.
Jerry: I'll protect her.
Sonny: Okay, listen, Emily's important to me and to my children, and if there's anything I c do for her -- but I don't want to leave you here -
Kate: Sonny, I understand, I understand.
Sonny: Okay, you -- you be careful.
Kate: I will, just go. I'm fine.
Jerry: Wow. Your courage and compassion are most impressive, but I'm afraid it's wasted on me.
Kate: And why is that?
Jerry: Because for one thing, I don't deserve it, and secondly, I'll almost certainly take advantage of you before the night is over.
Elizabeth: Nikolas, we have to take Emily now.
Nikolas: No, she needs to stay with me, please! No --
Elizabeth: Come on. We're going to go sit down in that air over there, okay? You'll be more comfortable.
Sonny: She's dead?
Sonny: She was strangled. Do you think it was Zacchara?
Jason: Nikolas didn't say anything; Elizabeth just gave him a sedative.
Sonny: Hey -- can you tell me what happened? Was she dead when you found her?
Nikolas: She -- she was on the floor, this cord -- this cord around her neck.
Sonny: Where'd you get the bruise? What, somebody hit you?
Nikolas: I -- I don't remember.
Sonny: Did you see Zacchara?
Nikolas: Zacchara? He was here in this house? Why was he here?
Sonny: Did Zacchara hit you?
Nikolas: Where -- where is Emily? Where is she -- she?
[Knock on door]
Lulu: It's Lulu!
Spinelli: Oh, thank you, gods and goddesses. Greetings, fair Lulu, and deepest gratitude that you're safe and well.
Lulu: Same to you. Where is Elizabeth?
Nadine: She -- she's up at the house with Jason.
Lulu: Why? Spinelli, what's going on?
Spinelli: There's news of the saddest nature.
Lulu: Did my dad have another heart attack?
Spinelli: No. Uh -- no, not as far as we know, but --
Lulu: Oh, is it Lucky?
Spinelli: No, fair one, um -- Emily died.
Lulu: Are you sure?
Nadine: Ja -- Jason came to get Elizabeth to help with Nikolas.
Logan: What happened to her?
Spinelli: According to Stone Cold, she was strangled.
Carly: So what do we do now? Do we go after Jerry?
Jax: Of course I want to, but I think Luke had the right idea. I think we should just stay in one place, stay put, you know? I think it's safer than walking around these hallways.
Carly: Yeah. We could go back to the ballroom.
Carly: I don't want to. That's awful, isn't it? You know, I hate feeling helpless, and there's nothing I can do for Jason and -- I just can't believe this night, and I can't believe I almost lost you.
Jax: Yeah, but you didnít. Okay? I would never leave you, I love you too much.
Carly: I guess we're stuck with each other, huh?
Jax: Yeah. I'm okay with that, no complaints.
Carly: I love you. And I don't know what's going to happen here tonight, but I want you to know that you have made me happier than I ever thought I could be, and I love you so much.
Sonny: Hey -- don't look over there. Don't look over there. Everybody told me, "Leave Zacchara alone." What do I do? I provoke him. And I don't want to hear you say it isn't me because I don't want to hear any excuses.
Jason: You didn't know.
Sonny: I brought him down on every-- now he's killing people. And now Emily's dead.
Jason: Trevor's the one who lost control.
Sonny: Look at me. I'm sorry, okay? Emily was never supposed to get caught up in something like this.
Sonny: She was going to be a doctor; she was going to heal people.
Sonny: She was going to live a good life. All I ever wanted was for her to be safe.
Carly: Oh, God. I just want this night to be over. I want to go home to my boys. Oh. They are going to be so upset about Emily. They just lost Leticia. How do I tell them that Emily is dead? How do I do that?
Jax: We'll tell them together.
Carly: How? What are you going to say to them?
Jax: I don't know, but we'll figure it out. Okay?
Carly: What the hell is that?
Jax: What? Oh. That's a --
Carly: What is that?
Jax: That's a device used to piggyback cell phones.
Carly: That means the person who's been texting me and the person who killed Leticia is here tonight.
Lulu: Nikolas loves -- loved Emily so much. Huh.
Spinelli: Elizabeth told us their story.
Lulu: Emily was always so nice to me. Even when I was little, I can't remember a time that I didn't know her. Her and Nikolas and Lucky and Elizabeth were best friends. How can Emily be gone?
Logan: Hey, you want to go back to the main house? Huh?
Nadine: Okay, I don't mean to be disrespectful, but can we all agree that taking Lulu anywhere leads to trouble?
Spinelli: You can't blame fair Lulu for being targeted by the uber-demented denizen of darkness and his legions of doom.
Logan: Spinelli, could you give it a rest, huh?
Nadine: Okay, you know what? Either show the Jackal some respect or shut the hell up.
Spinelli: Thank you, Nurse Nadine, you are most kind.
Lulu: You aren't to blame for what your father did.
Johnny: We both know that isn't true.
Lulu: How did you cut your hand?
Elizabeth: I love you.
[Waltz music plays]
Nikolas: Get away from him.
Nikolas: No --
Nikolas: No! No! No! Get away! Get away from -- no, Emily!
Sonny: Kate! Kate! Wake up, Jerry! Where's Kate?
Kate: Think about it, Mr. Zacchara -- if you kill me, Sonny will kill Johnny.
Anthony: I warned him. The day he barged into my house, I told Corinthos he would play my game, and now he will.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Carly: Who's been texting me?
Sonny: Where's Kate?
Jerry: Zacchara took her.
