(This still needs extensive editing)
Oh, hey, Alexis. I need to talk to you. It's important.
What do you and I possibly have to discuss?
What else, Julian? See, I just got your attention.
[Elevator bell dings]
Julian's not a part of my life anymore. Well, he's in trouble. What kind of trouble? The big kind. [Breathing heavily] What the hell you doing in my house? You're out of earl grey. And really, Anna, as often as you've snuck into my house uninvited, I'm just returning the favor. As for this preliminary bloodwork, there's nothing jumping out at me. Your white blood count, your hemoglobin, your platelets are all within a normal range. Electrolytes, liver function panel, your immunoglobulins. No, I've heard this all before. I've seen specialist after specialist, I thought you would be different, Dr. Finn. Well, I am different. I have a few more tests coming in from the lab. They should be here in a couple days. But, uh... Cassandra, this is -- this is good news so far. Really, so whatever it is you thought I might have... based on these preliminary tests, I'm cautiously optimistic you are in the clear. In this case, I love being wrong as much as I love being right. Well, I'm relieved, but also a little disappointed. It means that I have no excuse to keep seeing you. Elizabeth, where are you? I went to your room. I heard you were discharged. I wanted to pick you up, you weren't there. Okay, I'm, um... I'm going to head to the art therapy room. If that's where you are, then wait there for me. Elizabeth? Elizabeth. Hey. Hi. I... I needed to see you again. Not just for a second like at the hospital. I really needed to see you... to see if this is even possible. It's me. It's Jason. I've been so focused on trying to get people to realize who I am, but, um... I didn't think about how this must be for you. I'm sorry. Oh, it's just -- it's definitely not how I thought our launch party would end up. Hey... listen to me. I promise you I'm going to figure out what's going on here, and to find out what this man wants. You realize that he's a fraud, right? With the way he looks. It's all part of the set-up. He's a stranger. That I'm your husband. Yeah. You are my husband.
You are the man that I love. We have built a life together. We have scout and Danny. That I have no doubt about. That means a lot. It does, but... I need to hear you say the words. I need to hear you say, "I know you're Jason Morgan".
I picked the lock and I let myself in. And I've been waiting for you, because I figured the chances of you returning my phone call would be pretty dicey. Okay, you have no business with me -- or to be here. And as a former police commissioner, I know I'm within my rights to shoot you as a trespasser. Oh, I sure hope you don't, because there's no sign of a forced entry, I haven't taken anything, and I'm armed with a cup of hot tea. So I hope you don't. Plus, it would mean that all of your hard work to entrap me would be for nothing. Just leave. Just go, can you? I'm sure Nina's missing you. Yeah, I'll be home soon enough. What about you? Is there a Dr. Finn out there missing you? I didn't realize you two were an item. Didn't even realize you knew each other. He treated me. You know, after I was diagnosed with PV. It's none of your business -- my personal life. Hmm, suppose it isn't -- unless this so-called "relationship" is just a performance to get to me. That's very narcissistic. You think that I'm trying to make you jealous with fin? No, I don't think that it's solely for my benefit. Just like I don't think it's a coincidence that your boyfriend is treating Cassandra Pierce. I hope I'm not speaking out of turn, but I heard that you and Anna broke up? Oh? Where? People in hospitals talk and one hears -- or overhears -- things. Yes, I imagine one does. If it's all the same, I'd prefer to keep my personal life separate from my patient's. I hope you can understand. Of course. Your professionalism is what captured my attention in the first place. Hmm. I'm sorry to have dragged you all the way here seemingly for nothing. I imagine you'll be heading back to Monaco once your final test results come in. Actually, no, I've decided to stay in Port Charles for the time being. Trouble has a way of finding Julian no matter where he goes or what he does. Now, this serious, okay? I just got a call from Pentonville and I take issue that I'm hearing about this now. But last week, Julian was beaten within an inch of his life. What? He's okay. He's okay. He's stable. They took him to the prison hospital, releasing him back to his cell. But they said he was lucky this time. This time? Yeah. This wasn't his first fight. Well, he's obviously being targeted. So why aren't the guards doing something to stop it? Oh, come on, Alexis! You know how this works. Somebody pays somebody off, they look the other way -- the official statement is they don't have enough guards. See? So, that's where you come in. Sonny and Carly -- that's one thing. That hurts bad enough. But... ...I need you to know that the man in that jail cell is not Danny's father. He's not the man that you vowed to live the rest of your life with -- twice. So can you tell me that, please? Jason.
[Cell phone rings]
I... yeah. You know, uh, I should take this. No, but you didn't even give me a chance. This is important. So are you. And so are you. Hey, Curtis. [Clears throat] What'd you find?
Sam: It was real.
It is you.
Elizabeth: So it's true. Jake did see someone who looked exactly like his father the other night in the park. Yeah, I was cutting through the park when I saw you with him. You know, at first, it didn't -- it didn't make any sense because he called you "Mom", but he was too young to be Cam, and too old to be Aiden. He said he -- he heard someone say his name. That was me. I mean, I couldn't -- I couldn't believe it. But when I saw him, I knew -- I just -- I knew it was Jake. You let him see you? Just -- just for a second. I mean, he was carrying a tray of hot chocolate. He said you smiled at him. He's beautiful. It was like -- it was like nothing ever happened to him. It was Helena. She staged the whole accident to torture Luke. That's what Sonny said, yeah. Is Sonny going to get you out of here? Um, Diane's working on that right now, but they want me to plead temporary insanity. If she thinks that's a good idea. I'm not -- I'm not crazy, Elizabeth. I meant to go after Franco, and I'd do it again. That door was not open.
[Knocks on the door]
We need to talk. No, not now, Diane. I'm kind of in the middle of something. Too bad. I will be brief. You are pressing charges against a man who's risked his life to save Sam Morgan last night -- actually saved her. Wait, hold on. Are you representing him? I am. Huh? Just like I represented you. Only unlike you, he is not walking around a free man. He's stuck in a jail cell -- unnecessarily. Oh, unnecessarily? He blindsided me. He was provoked. How -- I provoked him, how? I was just standing there. The next thing I know, he had both of his hands around my throat. Fine. We will call it a "momentary outburst of rage". Completely understandable given your history of targeting him through his family -- his wife, his nephew. Huh? Both of whom have suffered grievously at your hands. Yeah, but I was exonerated for all that. You're the one who made sure that happened. Yes, the "tumor" defense -- as if I'd forgotten. He's been gone for the last five years. He has no idea about your diagnosis, your treatment. He saw you as a threat and he acted accordingly. Oh, okay, good. Good luck selling that to a judge. Given your history -- long, long history -- of transgressions, I would think you would be willing to drop these charges. Yeah, well, you thought wrong, okay? As far as I'm concerned, Jason Morgan is a guy who has a beard now and lives with Sam. And that other guy is an impostor. And for all I know, he attacked me to make his act look convincing. He has anger issues. He's a bad person. He should be in jail. He should rot there. That's where he belongs. Yeah, sure. Send it right over to me. Thanks, man. Send what? What's that all about? I asked Curtis to look into the man who's pretending to be me. And? Did he find something? Possibly. I told him to start with Franco. [Cell phone chimes] Let's see what he's turned up so far. Okay.
That a lot has changed in the past five years. Life has gone on. People have, too. A lot has happened in Port Charles. A lot has changed -- including Franco. Yeah, Carly told me he had a brain tumor. And that she almost married him. Yeah, I think it's safe to say that relationship was a mistake on both their parts. Yeah, well, Carly doesn't make the greatest decisions when she's hurting, but she usually figures her way out of it. As opposed to me? You implying that being with Franco is my bad decision? You don't know him. You haven't seen the way he is now. You're right. I haven't. All I know is Franco had Michael raped in prison. He made Sam think he raped her. That was before the tumor... I don't care if Franco had a tumor. I care that he hurt them. Methinks he doth protest too much. Hmm? If this were a courtroom, I would say "you are deflecting -- you're hiding something". I have nothing to hide. I'm not hiding anything. I just don't really care that there's a guy out there that may or may not have Jason Morgan's old face. Well, you're warped up about something. That's for sure. Oh! I know you well enough by now to understand your quirks. You resort to rage when you're backed into a corner. So, as my former client, what are you up to with my current client? I really don't have time for this right now, Diane, so I need for you to buzz off. Okay. Absolutely. I'm going to suggest that you reconsider dropping these charges. Okay? Save the taxpayers a lot of money -- everybody else time, trouble, grief -- especially you. Because if I have to drag your ugly past into the light to defend my client, don't think I won't. You have my number. Just like I have yours.
Sam: Where did this come from? Curtis found it in Franco's art therapy room. It's a bit odd that Franco would be sketching this face, don't you think? I don't know. It's possible that Franco could have just heard about this guy's arrival and started sketching the way you used to look. Could be a trigger of some sorts. And there it is. Is that a death certificate? Yeah. Curtis thought it would be interesting and he sent it. Andréw Moore... Moore's my birth mother's last name. Wait a minute. Date of birth -- November 11th. Jason, that's your birthday. Listen, I'm working on getting Julian out of general population, but that could take some time. So this is where you come in. You need to talk to him... mm! ...And tell him to stay away from these people that are targeting him. No more fights! H-how do I know that I'm not being played? How do I know that he didn't instigate the fight to try to get me over there, to try to get himself transferred out of Pentonville? How do I know the two of you haven't cooked this whole thing up? Because he didn't even want me to talk to you. He -- he said that he doesn't want you to worry. He wants you to forget about him. Okay, well, -- well, why are you telling me this, then?! Because I'm worried about him and he won't listen to me. Whatever trouble he's in, he won't back down from it. Well, I don't know what you think I can accomplish because Julian does what he feels that he needs to do, and there's very little I can do to convince him otherwise. Alexis, listen. Right now, Julian thinks he has nothing to lose. So if you were to give him a sliver of hope for the two of you. Sorry, fresh out. Oh, come on! He has nothing to hang onto right now. He needs something that's going to motivate him to stay safe that he doesn't have to stand up to these people and prove anything. He needs to stay alive.
To be determined. Depends on certain variables. Variables? There's a business opportunity I'm exploring. Oh. What kind? I thought you liked to keep personal and professional separate. Oh, that is my credo. Doesn't need to be your credo. Forgive me. I completely understand. Oh, no. It's fine. I deal in imports. And from what I've seen of this lovely town, there's a whole market that is yet to be tapped. Oh, I've met ms. Pierce. Why would fin give me any of her medical information? Why would he do that? How do you know her? Don't lie to me. What's the point of lying to my face? You obviously know about my history with Cassandra Pierce, and I think you're using your boyfriend to get to me through her. That's good. That's -- okay. Does she report to you for some reason? Or, you know, do you two have, like, something going, and that's what's prompted this visit here? Okay. I see. I've misread the situation. You know I really did hope that we had reached a détente of sorts, Anna. Neither one trusting each other, but at least we have some limited cooperation. Well, then, maybe you shouldn't have broken into my house if you wanted to have a conversation. So you've got 30 seconds to leave or I'm going to call the cops. Okay, no, there's no need for that. Show myself out. But I am curious to know what Cassandra Pierce will say when she learns her doctor is up to no good. Okay. Okay. Wait! I don't know what you think that I can accomplish. In fact, you should call Ava and ask her for help. Listen, we both know that the person that has the most influence on Julian is you. So you need to keep him safe. I hope I didn't just hear what I thought I heard. Well, I don't know what you heard, but it's none of your business. [Chuckles] Is he harassing you? No, he told me that Julian as badly beaten a week ago. Oh. Well, that's sad. Yes. My advice is that you take it up with the warden. Ask that your client be moved to special holding, perhaps, solitary. At least when Julian's alone, he can't provoke anyone. [Sighs] I said what I had to say. The rest is up to you. [Sighs] You okay? It's going to take a lot more than Scott to get under my skin these days. You do realize that you're being manipulated, right? That Julian wants you to worry about him. I thought about that. It's just Scott said that Julian doesn't want me to know anything about this. "This"? It's happened before. It's just this last time almost killed him. And the guards aren't doing anything. Yes, well, that's very sad. But this is a situation that Julian brought on entirely himself. Up to and including asking the judge to throw the book at him during sentencing. Tell me you're not actually thinking about going to visit him. I'm not going to deny anything that Franco did, but he had a medical condition. And once the tumor was removed, he changed. It took a while, but we became friends. And then more than friends. It started because of Jake. [Exhales] Jake was really troubled after everything he went through with Helena. And Franco helped him. He's been really great with Jake. He's been great with all of my boys. He lives with us now. Does that change anything for you? No. Well, I didn't come here to defend my relationship with Franco. Then why'd you come? [Exhales sharply] There's something you need to know. Franco's been digging into his past and he recently came upon some information that he didn't know what to do with. And I just feel that you and Jason need to-- I -- I just feel that you both need to know. Heather Webber lied about Jason and Franco being twins. Franco is Heather's son by Scott Baldwin. Yeah, that's what Carly told me. But Susan Moore did give birth to identical twin boys. She was afraid the Quartermaines would find out and take them both, so she hid one away. So you think that explains Sam's husband? That he's my twin? [Clears throat] Hey, uh, Elizabeth. It's me. Weird question. Have you been in my art studio? Where are you? What? You know what? Start talking. Right now. Start talking!
Regarding your conflicted feelings for Julian. And I'm not going to make light of that. Thank you. I appreciate your trust in me. You know I will always be there for you. I'm just worried you're not taking care of yourself. This is like detox. Julian's finally out of your system. You going to visit him -- tantamount to taking one sip. This one visit will become a few, will become many -- next thing you know, you're devoting your entire career toward getting him freed. And God forbid you should succeed. What then? Another round of toxic love where Julian tries to destroy everything that you are? I know what you're saying is true. I do. I have no illusions about Julian or what our life was like together. And I could think of a thousand reasons why I shouldn't even care what's happening to him in Pentonville. But just because I don't want him in my life anymore, doesn't mean I want him dead. The guy out there who has your old face, he already worked me over. And he's in lockup. So if you want to join him...
Jason: You knew about that guy before he got to town. And you're going to tell me everything you know about him. I'm just as much in the dark about who this guy is as you are. Franco, you really need to stop lying to me right now. Hey, what do you say we get Elizabeth down here now? Well, h-h-hold on. Put that down. Andréw Moore. What do you know about him? Franco... I-I'll tell you everything that I know. There's no easy way. Just spit it out! All right. [Chuckles nervously] Andréw Moore... is a twin brother of -- well, of you.
Elizabeth: I understand why you might think that you and Sam's husband are twins. I thought that at first, too, but more than likely, neither of you is Andréw. I don't follow. The only reason why we know about Andréw is because Franco found the death certificate. Andréw died when he was a child. Look, I know this is a lot to process. Franco didn't want me to say anything, but I just felt like you had the right to know. Well, thank you. I appreciate you going out of your way for me. I made a mistake by keeping the truth from Jason once before, and I promised myself that I would never do it again. So I actually have a twin brother. Susan Moore gave Betsy a kid to raise as her own. Betsy hid the kid from the Quartermaines until they could sort out a custody agreement. That never happened. And I thought the kid was my brother. And then one day Drew was just gone, and my mother convinced me that he was my imaginary friend. That's it. I didn't even know the truth until recently. And what truth is that. Well, you saw the death certificate. The kid died of a heart defect before -- before the age of four.
Okay, will you be straight with me now? Can we drop the whole cat-and-mouse stuff? Oh, you didn't give me much choice. But if I'm going to be honest with you, you have to be honest with me. That sounds fair. So, yeah, yeah. I mean, I know your association with Cassandra, yeah. I'd be disappointed if you didn't. I'm sure your dossier on me is pretty thick. It is, yes. Very. And I also know that you were running this, uh, ring of jewel thieves -- smash and grab -- out of central Europe. Well, then you also know that I was never charged not one time. Point being is that I know of your past connection to Cassandra. That's the point. Tell me something, Anna. With all that's going on in the world, the WSB has nothing better to do than to look at old robberies. No, it's not the robberies. I think she's funneling her profits into a more lucrative enterprise -- synthetic opioids. That's very good. She may have invited me to join that operation. Are you admitting something? But you're being honest with me. I'll be honest with you. Are you up to your neck in this? Anna, I'm a thief, I'm a traitor, a killer sometimes. I'm not a dope dealer. And no matter what you think of me, I would hope you would know I would never be involved in a business like that. You prove it. When it comes to stocks, I wouldn't know a blue chip from a poker chip. Tell me, this business opportunity you have, is this something a humble doctor like myself should get in on the ground level? Wait. I just crossed my own line, didn't I? Well, if I have to choose between a personal and a professional relationship with you, Dr. Finn, I would choose personal, especially now that I've been given a clean bill of health, and I'm going to be in town for a while. I see. No stock tips from me. Perhaps you could take me out for a drink and we could talk about it. Unless, of course, the hospital gossip is wrong and you and Anna aren't finished as a couple? I will most certainly call you... oh. ...When you're final lab results come in. Well, you know where to find me. Either way, I'll be around. Mm. Look, Julian and I both know that there is no future for us because too much has happened and it can't be undone. And -- and I can't forget it. Or forgive. But I -- sorry, I can't help being upset that he's being severely beaten in prison. Yes, it's a shame. Sorry to sound so harsh, but prison's a very dangerous place. You and I both know it. Don't let your compassionate heart lead you back onto that roller coaster called "Julian Jerome".
[Cell phone chimes]
All right, I have to go. Stay strong. Head up. You're making the right decision not to go visit him. How do you know Andréw's dead? Aside from seeing a death certificate, Betsy told me. This is a hard copy of what you already have on your phone. Okay, well, we'll have to authenticate this. Look, you know what? I know this is a lot for everybody to process. Believe me, it took a lot out of me to put all of these pieces together. The picture? What picture? The picture of you as a boy with the boy who looked like me. I know you still have it and I want to see the picture. Franco, show me this picture. That's me... and that's my imaginary friend. And for what it's worth, Jason, I'm sorry that you're not getting the ending that you want. But you should at least have the peace of mind of knowing that Drew's dead, and that that guy -- whoever he is -- is not your brother. I can't stay in this room any longer. I'm going to kill him. Give me my picture. That's my picture! You know what, if I were you, I wouldn't worry about that picture. I would worry about all the things you did to the people that Jason loves. I would worry about that man with Jason's face might want to make you pay. And I'd worry that what's happening to you right now is just the start. Does your husband know that you think that that other guy is Jason? [Scoffs] What I think is none of your business. I do think that other guy will dismantle you. I can't wait to watch. When Jason came back to Port Charles, he called himself "Jake Doe". He had no memory of his past. But Nikolas knew because Helena told him, and then he told me. And not only did I choose to keep that secret, I made Nikolas promise not to tell anyone. Now it seems... inconceivable that I would do that, but I had felt like I had lost so much with Jake and Lucky. And so I clung to Jason like a life-raft. I convinced myself that keeping the secret was the right thing to do. I was going to marry Jason, knowing he was married to Sam. I will always regret that decision. I mean, you were hurting. You made a mistake. You can't blame yourself forever. Maybe the real reason you were able to keep it a secret... ...was because deep down... you knew he wasn't me.[Sighs] Deanna? You okay? I just need a moment to clear my head. I just came from the ER. Yeah, what happened? A pretty scary opioid OD. That's the third one this week. I am long since past having to prove anything to you. You say you're clean in all of this, but clearly something I said struck a nerve. Was it the thought of all those drugs out on the street? Did that get to you? 'Cause it should. I look at things through the eyes of a father. And this is an epidemic that makes no distinction who it strikes. So, no, I don't want these drugs in our community. Well, you can do something about it. What do you propose I do? Go to Cassandra, right, and say... you'll take her up on that offer to join her operation. You can be my spy. When Nikolas told me Jake doe was Jason, I believed him. I still believe it. The DNA test proves it. Then how do you explain me? How do you explain the things that I know -- the things we just talked about? I don't know, I don't know. I don't know what to think. I just know that I came here to tell you what I know and that's it. Okay. Well, thank you for telling me about the twin. At least I have a place to start looking. I will talk to Franco about getting you out of here. Maybe you're home and you're in bed and you're asleep and that's why you're not answering the phone. I hope that's why. I'll be there soon. Yeah, hope everything's okay.
If Elizabeth learns the truth, then Elizabeth will be learning
that I was a monster
even back then.
And then everything
that I've done since then --
all of the torturing people,
all of the persecuting people,
all of the ghoulish
and disturbing art --
that wasn't a byproduct
of the tumor.
That was my actual DNA. Yeah... that's not going to happen. Not now. Not yet anyway. Hey. Hey. Are you okay? Yeah, I'm fine. I just needed to get out of there. I wasn't quite sure I could control myself. [Sighs] You know this is crazy, right? This guy's laying claim to my -- my life, my kids... my wife. And then I find out that I had a twin brother but he died. His existence just wiped away, but I guess it wasn't because, hey, here's proof. Hey, we'll get to the bottom of this. And we will find out the truth. And Jason...
I have your back. No matter what, okay? Yeah, okay. Come here. [Exhales deeply] [Door opens] [Footsteps approach]
