Anna: Okay, no one fitting his ID, or the child's description? {Sighs] Okay. Keep me posted, yeah? Thanks.

Lulu: Nothing?

Anna: No. No one's seen Valentin or Charlotte.

Nathan: I've got a call into the commissioner. As soon as we put out an Amber Alert for Charlotte, the phones will start lighting up.

Anna: You can't put out an Amber Alert.

Lulu: What?

Nathan: Why not?

Lulu: Why? You have a warrant for Valentin's arrest.

Anna: Not for kidnapping. The warrant hasn't been served. Technically, he isn't under arrest. Plus he has full custody of Charlotte. Legally, he can take her wherever he wants.

Lulu: Oh, God. They could be anywhere, and no one will even look twice.

Dante: Lulu. Hey.

Lulu: [Crying] Charlotte's gone.

Valentin: Voilą. [Speaks French]

Charlotte: Where are we?

Valentin: This is a guest cabin, which is kind of like a hotel room, only there's no neighbors. We have it all to ourselves.

Charlotte: Why are we here? Are we on vacation?

Valentin: We are on vacation. Someplace you've always wanted to go. Can you guess?

Charlotte: No.

Valentin: I'll give you a hint.

Charlotte: Niagara Falls! Really?! Is --

Valentin: You've been asking to come here every night for like the last month. Isn't that great?

Charlotte: Thank you, Papa.

Valentin: Ohh, you're so welcome.

Charlotte: But where's Nina?

Valentin: [Sighs]

[Nina remembers]

Valentin: Will you promise me, no matter what... you'll remember I love you?

Jason: Hey, I just wanted to call and check in on Jake. How's he holding up?

Elizabeth: He's upstairs sound asleep. We spent the night in the hospital. He was restless. I'm hoping he'll sleep better in his own bed.

Jason: Well, when he wakes up, tell him I'm thinking about him, okay?

Elizabeth: Yeah, of course. I'll tell him.

Jason: And if he needs anything or if you need anything, just, uh -- just call me.

Elizabeth: I will. Thank you, Jason.

[Knock on door]

Carly: Hey.

Jason: Hey.

Carly: Is this a good time?

Jason: Yeah. Yeah, actually. You can help keep my mind off of Jake.

Carly: What happened to Jake?

Jason: Uh, it's a long story, and if you don't mind, I'd rather not get into all the details, but I'll tell you that it did start with Helena, and it ended last night at the Nurses' Ball. The important thing is he's okay.

Carly: Thank God he's okay.

Jason: Yeah. So [Clears throat] What's going on with you, huh? What's up?

Carly: You know how I kept saying that I needed to have the information about Morgan's death? I had to know how it happened and not just who planted the bomb but why Morgan spiraled the way he did? Well, I know. It was Ava. She sabotaged him.

Sonny: How do you feel about all that, huh? Everybody knowing the truth, what you did to Morgan. What you really are. You sealed your own fate. You're gonna deserve what you're getting.

Ava: Kill me. I... I want you to kill me.

Dante: I can't believe Valentin took off with Charlotte.

Lulu: It's all my fault. I went upstairs for a minute to grab something for Rocco, and when I came back, Valentin and Charlotte were gone. [Crying] God, I'm probably never gonna see my daughter ever again.

Dante: Hey. Don't say that, okay? We're gonna find Charlotte. I promise you that, all right?

Lulu: When you say it, I almost believe it.

Nathan: I've been coordinating the search with the department.

Anna: Yep. We have every available officer on the street.

Lulu: I just hope that's enough. And Valentin is a master at vanishing in plain sight. We saw that for ourselves -- that whole Theo hart persona he created on Cassadine Island.

Anna: He's not gonna make it easy for us. I am very concerned about finding Charlotte.

Lulu: We don't even know where to start looking.

Anna: No, we don't. But Detective West knows someone who might.

Nina: Yes, I'm checking in on my husband, Valentin Cassadine. He's on the 10th floor, I believe. It was a gunshot wound. His surgeon is, uh, Dr. Laughlin. What do you mean he checked out?

Valentin: You could be our official navigator for Niagara Falls. I need you to pick out all the cool Niagara Falls stuff you want to do.

Charlotte: What are you going to do, Papa?

Valentin: Oh, I'm just gonna get situated. Aah, I got to meet with a friend. He's just gonna come over for a second, and then after that, we'll head right to the Maid of the Mist. Won't that be fun?

Charlotte: But Nina wanted to see the Maid of the Mist, too.

Valentin: I know. Nina was gonna come on this trip, but Nina's a little angry with Papa right now.

Charlotte: Why? Because of what happened with Jake?

Laura: I hope it's not a bad time. I just wanted to stop by and check on Jake.

Elizabeth: It's never a bad time for you to stop by, but that boy is sound asleep.

Laura: I figured as much. After that night that we all went through, I -- he could really use the rest.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I know I could.

Laura: Yeah.

Elizabeth: And I know you didn't have an easy night, either.

Laura: Mnh-mnh. Lulu and I tried to distract Charlotte and Emma as much as we possibly could. We even played charades with them, but --

Elizabeth: Oh! [Chuckles]

Laura: I know. But it didn't work 'cause, um, Charlotte was really worried about her father.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I can imagine they were both pretty scared.

Laura: But you know something? They both woke up in pretty good spirits this morning.

Elizabeth: Ohh.

Laura: [Chuckles] Kids. So resilient. I know. Yeah. It'll be the same with Jake.

Elizabeth: I wanted to show you something. This is the shipping receipt from the -- the gift that Spencer sent. Or so we thought. Jake was so excited to get that magic kit -- I mean, beyond excited. He was more, like, obsessed, which I-I did think was a little odd, but I was just thrilled he was excited about anything. So I-I left him alone with that box sent from God knows who. Laura, does it make me a bad mom?

Carly: So on one of her visits with Avery, Ava snuck in to Morgan's room, and she replaced his lithium with placebos. So basically, for the last weeks of Morgan's life, he was walking around un-medicated, which explains why he was drinking at The Floating Rib and explains why he stole Julian's car.

Jason: I don't know what to say. That's, uh... that's sick.

Carly: It's sick.

Jason: Do you know why she did it?

Carly: Because she thought Morgan was bad for Kiki, and she wanted to drive Morgan to have a nervous breakdown so Sonny and I would commit him. I couldn't hate her more, Jason. I mean, I can't believe what she did to my kid.

Jason: Where's Ava right now?

Carly: She's at the burn unit at GH.

Jason: She's what?

Carly: Sonny and I went to confront her at her warehouse. We called her out for what she did to Morgan. And can you believe that she was upset with us? I mean, she set out to destroy our son, and he wound up dead. I mean, really?

Jason: How did this fire start?

Carly: Ava started it. There was a kerosene lamp sitting right next to her, and she threw it at me. And then she pulled a gun on me and Sonny. We were able to get out of there, but Ava was trapped.

Jason: And not because of anything you did.

Carly: No.

Jason: And the cops believed that?

Carly: Yes. We've been cleared of everything, Jason.

Jason: Are you sure?

Carly: Yes.

Jason: Listen, you didn't ask for it, but I'm gonna give you my advice. Stay clear of Ava.

Carly: Well, I don't know if Sonny will be able to do that because he wants Ava dead. And I'm not gonna stop him this time.

Ava: Do it. Do what you came to do. Kill me. [Wheezing]

Sonny: It's what you deserve. I should have done that a long time ago. That night on my island. Remember?

Ava: Hmm.

Sonny: When I finally found out the truth about who murdered Connie. That's when I wanted payback. But then you told me you were pregnant. I'm bad, but I'm not that bad. I let you live.

Ava: For Avery.

Sonny: I don't regret that little girl for one second, but I tell you what, I regret every minute that you've been breathing since. Now, there's nothing I can do to save Morgan, but I can still save Avery from a lifetime of pain. I mean, who knows? You could end up killing her just like you killed my son.

Ava: You got me right where you want me, Sonny. Put me out of my misery. Sonny, come on. Do it.

Sonny: No!

Ava: Wh-- why?

Sonny: The fire did a number on you, just like you did a number on Morgan, and I'm not talking about the explosion that killed him. I'm talking about the weeks before. When his mind was on fire, he couldn't think clearly. He couldn't control himself, and he did not know why. He was taking his medication.

[Papers rustle]

Sonny: Why don't I replace... some of your medication with placebos? Why don't I switch your morphine to sugar water so you can have a taste of what Morgan went through? I've got plenty of time. You're gonna be in here for a long time. Months, maybe years. You're gonna be trapped in agony. Death is too merciful for you. [Whispering] You need to live a long, painful life.

Nina: So good to see you, J.

Nathan: Thanks for meeting me.

Nina: Yeah. Um, listen, I'm -- I'm glad you want to meet because... Valentin checked himself out of the hospital.

Nathan: Yeah, I know. That's, uh -- that's kind of why I wanted to talk to you.

Nina: I didn't know what was going on. I figured he went back to Wyndemere, so I called the house, and I called his cell phone, but I can't get ahold of him. Because Valentin is a fugitive, and you need to help us find him.

Valentin: Yeah, things got pretty scary with Jake last night, didn't they? But he's fine, [Strained] And I'm fine.

Charlotte: Are you in trouble?

Valentin: Why would you say that?

Charlotte: Every time I asked Lulu about you, she would talk about something else.

Valentin: You know, it's a -- it's a misunderstanding. Like that game "Telephone," where one person says something, and by the end, it's completely different.

Charlotte: I love that game.

Valentin: So do I. Well, I think everyone's just heard the wrong thing. So it's important we just go away for a while until everyone straightens it out.

Charlotte: Wouldn't it be better if you helped and told them what you really said?

Valentin: No, I don't think so.

Charlotte: Or we could tell Lulu.

Valentin: I think that would be a bad idea.

Charlotte: But I never said goodbye, and that's rude, Papa. You said I should always be polite.

Valentin: You're right. So why don't we send Lulu a postcard? You can explain why we had to leave, and you can thank her for the sleepover. And when you're done, spread the maps out. You pick everything we're gonna do in town, okay?

Charlotte: Okay, Papa.

Valentin: Okay.

[Door closes]

Valentin: Yeah, it's me. Listen, I'm at the Canadian border. I need you to meet me right now.

Dante: Okay, Jordan has every available unit out looking for Valentin. She's gonna keep us in the loop every step of the way.

Lulu: All right, well, I have to be out there.

Dante: No, no, no, no, look, I know -- I know -- I know you're frustrated just sitting here, okay, but the PD is gonna find Valentin quicker than you can. You have to let -- you have to let them do their job, okay?

Lulu: They wouldn't have to do this if it wasn't for me. If I hadn't told Valentin he was about to be arrested, none of this would even be happening.

Dante: The guy sold a classified weapon to Helena Cassadine. He had to know he was gonna be taken into custody at some point.

Lulu: Yeah, but I'm the one who gave him the heads up. I just -- I-I thought he would do the right thing by Charlotte. I honestly never thought that he would run.

Dante: You can't blame yourself for trying to look after your daughter, okay? You knew that if Valentin was arrested without a custody arrangement in place between you two, she would become a ward of the state.

Lulu: Instead my daughter is now out there with a fugitive. I-I can't even blame Valentin. He thinks that he is the best person to take care of Charlotte. If I were in his position, I'd probably do the same thing.

Dante: No, you wouldn't do the same thing. You would have signed over custody to the parent who could take care of her better.

Lulu: But I'm not taking care of her! I'm not even out there looking! I-I need to be searching for her.

Dante: Okay, okay, stop. Stop. There is a reason -- there is a reason why the police don't involve families in official searches, okay? We want the best possible outcome for Charlotte. That means we got to do this by the book.

Lulu: [Sighs]

Dante: Valentin took Charlotte from our house, okay? Maybe she'll try to come back here. M-maybe she'll even try to call you.

Lulu: Dante.

Dante: What?

Lulu: I know how to find her.

Deanna: Plastics needs you to know they're going to do an assessment of Ms. Jerome.

Griffin: Right, uh, yeah, I'm headed there now. Thank you.

Ava: You're just gonna watch me suffer?

Sonny: After what you did to Morgan, it would be my pleasure. You're gonna be wishing every day that I had ended you, and if there's a time that you don't, if there's a minute that you don't spend consumed, suffering, then I will kill you.

Ava: Do it.

Griffin: What's going on here?

Carly: [Sighs]

Jason: Listen, I know that you're upset, but I don't think you mean what you're saying.

Carly: Why, because I'm the one who wanted to trust the legal system and hold out for justice? Morgan's dead. Ava's alive. What kind of justice is that?

Jason: Killing Ava, no matter how much she may deserve it, it's not gonna honor your son.

Carly: That's easy for you to say. Both of your sons are alive. One of mine is dead.

Elizabeth: Oh, my goodness. You did not have to do all of this. You're a guest in my house.

Laura: Oh, come on, now. I think this is one time when we don't need to stand on ceremony, do we?

Elizabeth: Thank you. Jake is still sound asleep.

Laura: Well, good. I'm glad to hear that, because it will give us a little chance to talk. Uh, there is something that I need to make absolutely clear. You are not a bad mother.

Elizabeth: I appreciate you saying that.

Laura: It's the truth. You had no way of knowing that Spencer didn't send that package. And I think that your -- your maternal intuition is -- is fabulous, but you would have had to have been a psychic to know what was inside that magic box.

Elizabeth: I just still can't believe all of this happened. When I saw Jake up on the s-- on the stage holding that canister, I just felt completely powerless.

Laura: But you weren't powerless, Elizabeth. Anna told me all about it. She said that you talked to him. You asked him to trust you, and he did. And that's because no matter how deep Helena's programming was buried in Jake, there's something that goes even deeper inside him, right to the very core of his soul. And that's your love for him. That's what saved him. Jake knows that he can depend on you, that you will be there for him no matter what. You, honey -- you brought your son back from the brink of disaster. And you know what, when you did that, you didn't just save Jake. You saved a lot of other people, too.

Dante: What do -- what do you mean you know how to find Charlotte?

Lulu: Valentin -- he gave Charlotte a cell phone last week. Uh, it was in case of emergencies so she wouldn't get stuck at the school again. But she can only call her dad, but the phone can receive calls.

Dante: Wait, you have the number?

Lulu: Uh, yes, but I didn't program it in my phone. I didn't want to be too tempted to call her.

Dante: And violate your visitation agreement.

Lulu: Exactly. I-I wrote it on a piece of paper, and I threw it in... found it. [Sighs] Here goes nothing.

[Cell phone ringing]

Charlotte: Hello?

Lulu: Charlotte! Sweetheart, hi! It's your -- it's Lulu.

Charlotte: Lulu, are you okay?

Lulu: Yeah, I-I'm fine.

Charlotte: You sound scared.

Lulu: Well, that's -- that's because I am. Why? Well, um, sweetheart, I was supposed to take you to school this morning, and when I came back downstairs after getting Rocco's book, you were gone.

Charlotte: I'm sorry. Papa said I couldn't say goodbye. Are you mad?

Lulu: No. No. I-I was worried about you. Are you with your papa right now?

Charlotte: No.

Lulu: Uh, where is he?

Charlotte: In the other room.

Lulu: Okay. You know, if you want, I could come pick you up.

Charlotte: No, thank you.

Lulu: Charlotte, I know that your papa told you that you had to leave with him this morning.

Charlotte: 'Cause it's a surprise. We're finally going on our trip.

Lulu: What trip? Charlotte? Charlotte, where are you?

Valentin: Charlotte, who are you talking to?

Anna: So Valentin is going to be arrested in connection with the theft of classified materials.

Nina: That's not really my problem, is it? You set me up.

Nathan: Nina, come on. You're our best chance to find him.

Nina: J, you set me up.

Nathan: You're our best chance to find him.

Nina: Come on. Well, I -- you're out of luck. I-I don't know what to tell you. It wasn't until a few minutes ago that I found out that he wasn't even in the hospital.

Anna: He took Charlotte.

Nina: He took Charlotte.

Anna: And unless we find them, they will be fugitives for the rest of their lives. Is that what you want for that little girl? Is that what you want for her future? Because honestly, I-I-I honestly don't believe that that is what Valentin envisioned for her, if he were thinking clearly, which obviously, he's not. So if you have any information that can help, you need to tell us.

Nina: I don't know where he is, Anna.

Anna: Would you tell me if you did?

Valentin: Why are you on your cell phone?

Charlotte: I'm sorry. I know you said it was only for emergencies.

Valentin: It's okay. Give it to me.

Lulu: Charlotte, are you there? What's going on?

Valentin: Hello, Lulu.

Lulu: Valentin, where are you?

Valentin: I think calling this number is a violation of our visitation agreement.

Lulu: Listen to me. I don't know what games you're trying to play, but this is not going to end well. Anna will find you, and when she does, it will not be good for Charlotte.

Valentin: No, you listen to me. If you truly care about what's best for Charlotte, then don't contact us again.

Lulu: Valentin! Hello? Damn it! Anything?

Dante: Did you get it? All right. I'm sorry, Lulu. We weren't able to trace the call.

Elizabeth: I still have so many questions about what happened. Like, how did Helena get her hands on that chimera in the first place?

Laura: Anna brought us up to speed on that, too. Apparently, Valentin sold it to Helena years ago.

Elizabeth: So Valentin put all this in motion? Is there anyone's life that man hasn't turned upside-down this year?

Laura: Yeah.

Elizabeth: [Groans]

Laura: And far be it for me to make excuses for him, but there's something you don't know. After you talked Jake down and the two of you left, two other men showed up, and they wanted the Chimera. They actually took Nina hostage to get it.

Elizabeth: Oh, my God.

Laura: And Valentin wouldn't give it to them. And, uh... he got shot saving Nina's life.

Elizabeth: Is he -- did he --

Laura: No, no, he's -- he's alive, and he's wounded, but, um, he's expected to survive.

Elizabeth: Well, that sounds...heroic.

Laura: [Chuckles] Uh, uh, one good act doesn't redeem him in my eyes. [Sighs] Even though I know, I can't quite just -- just dismiss him as being this evil, unfeeling monster anymore, you know?

Elizabeth: I'm sure it would be a lot easier if you could.

Laura: Mm-hmm. Valentin raised my granddaughter. Charlotte loves him. And [Sighs] I don't know how my daughter is going to reconcile all of this, you know? She has this daughter who she loves so much by a man she hates.

Elizabeth: But you loved Nikolas, and you hated his dad, right?

Laura: Yes, I did. I loved him. Mm. But by the time Nikolas came back into my life, Stavros was long gone, and Valentin is just so present in her life.

Elizabeth: I can't imagine being in Lulu's position, but I will tell you this. People can surprise you. People who we believed were past redemption -- they can find the strength to change for the better. I don't know. Maybe Valentin can do that for Charlotte.

Laura: All I can say is I don't envy my daughter these next several years. She's gonna have to navigate her way through being a good parent to Charlotte while trying to find some way to honor her relationship with her father. Fortunately, Valentin is facing criminal charges for his involvement with the Chimera.

Elizabeth: Because he originally sold it to Helena?

Laura: Yes, and that should put him in prison for a very long time.

Elizabeth: Oh.

Laura: I know. I know that's not going to erase all the problems for Lulu, but, um... it should make things a little simpler. [Sighs] And after all the things we've been through, I think we could all use a little bit of simple.

[Both chuckle]

Sonny: Dr. Munro, I didn't -- I didn't know that Ava was your patient.

Griffin: You should know. I'm listed as the consulting physician on the chart that you're holding in your hand.

Sonny: Oh, right there. I didn't -- I'm sorry. I didn't -- I didn't see it.

Griffin: That is confidential information. I could have you arrested just for reading it, or banned from the hospital, at the very least.

Sonny: Well, uh, no, I -- you don't have to do that. Um, look, I-I just came here to check on Ava and see how her condition is.

Griffin: I am very aware of your past history with Ms. Jerome.

Sonny: Are you aware that she switched my son's lithium to a placebo and used his bipolar disorder as a weapon to destroy him? And it ended up killing him?

Griffin: That's -- that's a matter for the police. I can't have you threatening any of my patients.

Sonny: I'm not threatening. I can tell you that right now. My wish came true that -- that Ava is gonna live a long, long life.

Carly: I'm sorry. I am sorry.

Jason: No, you don't have to be sorry. I'm here for you. You know that.

Carly: I'm sorry about what I said about both your boys being alive, because I don't ever want to make light of what you went through with Jake.

Jason: You didn't make light. Look, when we thought Jake was dead, to get him back, I know we got a miracle. So, like I said, I'm here for you, so...

Carly: Thank you. I know.

[Knock on door]

Jason: Always, right?

Carly: Always.

Jason: Just a sec, okay?

Carly: [Chuckles]

Jason: [Clears throat]

Sonny: Hey, Jason.

Jason: Hey.

Sonny: Hey, Carly.

Carly: Hey. I was, uh, telling Jason about what Ava did to Morgan.

Jason: Look, uh, I'm sorry. I thought it was enough to just find out who planted the bomb. I guess I should have been looking into why Morgan stole that car in the first place.

Sonny: There was no way you could have known. Ava covered her tracks really well. If Morgan's pills hadn't surfaced at The Floating Rib the night of the robbery, she'd have gotten away with it.

Carly: But she didn't because of you. Sonny's the one who put all the pieces together.

Sonny: Well, all the good it did. I thought if -- if I had answers, when he went out of control before he died, that me and Carly would have closure, some kind of peace. But I don't feel like I have peace right now.

Carly: No. Any update on Ava?

Sonny: Yeah, I went to the hospital, and I decided that the best punishment for Ava is for her to live.

Griffin: Your vitals look good, and we don't think there's any permanent nerve damage, which is very good news. If the burns had been so severe that they did damage to the nerves over 50% of your body, this could have been catastrophic.

Ava: That does not seem like good news to me.

Griffin: I could see about upping your medication, but as I said before, given your current respiratory condition, this might be as high as we can go.

Ava: I cannot live like this.

Griffin: Plastics will be down here soon to assess you for skin grafts.

Ava: When?

Griffin: It would be a few days before we could start. Burns this severe will take dozens of surgeries over the next few years with a risk of higher complications each time.

Ava: So... what you're saying to me is that there isn't any hope?

Charlotte: Papa, did I do something wrong?

Valentin: No, no, ma petite. No, it's my fault. I should -- I should tell you more about this trip.

Charlotte: You mean the boat ride on the Maid of the Mist?

Valentin: No, not just that.

Charlotte: Can we see the Bridal Veil Falls, too?

Valentin: Oh, you betcha. And then after, we're gonna go to Canada.

Charlotte: Are we going to see Nana?

Valentin: We're gonna try, if there's time. We're gonna -- we're gonna be busy.

[Knock on door]

Charlotte: Who's that?

Valentin: Um, that would be my friend. The one I told you about, remember?

Charlotte: I remember. Uh... but I want to go to the Falls.

Valentin: Well, I do, too, but we're gonna be talking about some grown-up stuff -- very boring. So I need you to go into the bedroom. Here, this is all about the Maid of the Mist. Go circle some boat times for us, okay?

Charlotte: Okay.

Valentin: All right. It's about time.

Man: You called. I came.

Valentin: You got what I need?

Nina: All right, I'll answer your question. You answer one of mine. You answer my question. Do you think that Valentin deserves to be arrested?

Anna: I just have the authori--

Nina: I didn't ask you that. Do you think that Valentin deserves to be arrested? When he was at the WSB with your sister, who was pretending to be... you, she convinced him to steal a weapon. It was her idea. It wasn't his idea. He did it to help her.

Anna: Yes.

Nina: Yes. She double-crossed him. He went on the run with a life-threatening condition 'cause we both know... [Voice breaking] The scoliosis would have killed him eventually, right? We both know that. But the only thing he had was a weapon, Anna. So he sold it.

Anna: To a dangerous criminal.

Nina: To a dangerous criminal, yes. We all know that Helena Cassadine is a dangerous criminal, but he had no choice. He was desperate. He didn't know what he was doing, and he was young. He -- he should go to prison for that?! Seriously?! He's not the one that kidnapped Jake Webber or got a weapon to him so that this little kid would set it off. He didn't do any of that. In fact, he saved the day by getting the weapon from those men that -- that were in suits who had me hostage.

Nathan: Nina, it's not that simple.

Nina: He -- he didn't -- what if it's that simple? What if it's that simple? Look at me. What if it's that simple? What if he was just somebody who made a mistake when he was younger, and he changed? And he changed his life. What if he's that guy? 'Cause you believe that people can change, don't you, J? You think people can change, right, Anna? Don't you think that they deserve a second chance?

[Cell phone ringing]

Anna: Yes? Hello?

Lulu: Anna. It's Lulu. I just talked to Charlotte.

Anna: What?! Where is she?

Lulu: I don't know. Uh, we just called her cell phone.

Dante: We had the PD trace the call, but Valentin hung up before we could do it.

Lulu: All we got is that Charlotte thinks that she's taking some trip that she wanted to go on.

Anna: Okay. Thanks for keeping me updated. Thank you.

Lulu: Anything new on your end?

Anna: I'm working on it. Okay, bye. So Lulu got through to Charlotte on her cell phone. And they tried to trace the call, but it wasn't long enough.

Nina: This must be difficult for Lulu.

Anna: Yeah, so Charlotte believes that her father has taken her on a trip, somewhere that she's always wanted to go. Do you know where that might be?

Nathan: Nina. Nina, if you know anything, I really need you to tell us.

Carly: How is it punishment for Ava to recover and then move on with her life?

Sonny: It's gonna take a long time for Ava to recover, and if she does, she'll be tried for what she did to Morgan.

Carly: When did you start trusting the legal system?

Jason: I think Sonny made the right call. This way Ava pays, and neither of you have to get blood on your hands.

Carly: There are ways to get rid of Ava without implicating Sonny.

Sonny: Ava's in agony. She begged me to kill her, but that would have been too easy. Ava's gonna suffer for the rest of her life.

Carly: She has a life, Sonny! Morgan doesn't, because Ava took it from him! And once again, Ava gets away with it.

[Door slams]

Griffin: I didn't say there was no hope.

Ava: Didn't say there was.

Griffin: In med school, they teach us to speak as clinically as possible. They don't want emotions getting in the way. It keeps things from getting confused. If you want... I could speak to you not as a doctor but as a priest. I-I-I don't know if you're Catholic or even religious or -- or even if that even matters at this point, but what I -- what I do know is that in difficult times, I've found my faith to be of comfort. This is probably breaking several regulations, but if you want, I could pray with you.

Ava: Thank you. [Whimpering]

Griffin: Hail, Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.

Both: Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death, amen.

Ava: Amen.

[Door opens]

Laura: Hey!

Lulu: Mom.

Laura: Why are all those squad cars out front? Did -- did something happen? You guys okay?

Lulu: [Crying] Mom. Valentin went on the run, and he took Charlotte with him.

Laura: [Gasps] What?!

Lulu: What if I never see her again?

Dante: We are gonna find her. I promise you that.

Anna: So do you know where Valentin might take Charlotte?

Nina: He's been all over the world -- South America, uh, Europe, Central America, um, Bulgaria. You should try Bulgaria, maybe.

Nathan: Come on, Nina. Do you really expect me to believe that he's gonna talk to Charlotte about Bulgaria. There's got to be some place closer to home than that.

Anna: If you know where Valentin is, you have to tell us!

Nina: Seriously? And be the reason why my husband spends the rest of his life in jail? I can't do that.

Nathan: I understand what Valentin means to you, okay, but you're not doing this guy any favors by keeping him on the road, okay? That's no life for him, and that's certainly -- that is certainly no life for Charlotte.

Anna: The WSB will never stop looking for him. You understand that? And they will send other agents after him. People that don't care about him, that aren't old friends like me.

Nina: Old friend?! Are you kidding me?! An old friend? When did this happen? All I know about you and your sister is how you ruined his life.

Nathan: That's enough. Enough. Think about Charlotte, okay? Do you really want her to watch as a bunch of WSB agents break in, kick down the door, try and take Valentin -- what if he gets shot? Do you want this little girl to watch her father die? 'Cause that could happen, Nina. If we don't take him in peacefully, while we have the chance, this is not gonna end well, okay?

Nina: Niagara Falls.

Anna: What?

Nina: Niagara Falls. Char-- Charlotte wanted to go to Niagara Falls. We said that we'd take her there this summer. If he wanted Charlotte to think that she was on a vacation, he would have taken her to Niagara Falls.

Anna: Hi, this is Anna Devane.

Man: Two sets of Canadian documentation. Border patrol won't look twice.

Valentin: My daughter thinks we're on vacation. She doesn't know that once we're across the border, we're gonna disappear... forever.

On the next "General Hospital" --

Jason (to Sonny): If Ava hadn't thrown that lantern that started the fire, what would you have done?

Alexis (to Sam): Are you okay?

Lucas (to Julian): You lived this long without my approval. Why is it so important now?

Anna (to Lulu, Dante, & Laura): I think I know where Valentin has taken Charlotte.

Valentin (on the phone): I need a car, and I need it now.
