Maybe it has to do with what you're wearing. There's no clock in here either, you know? There's -- there's never a clock in this room. It's like they freeze time, you know? It's like the universe and everything just wants to make you stop and wait for you to find out if your whole world is about to change.
[ Knock on door ] Come in. Hi. -Hi. -[ Laughs ] Hi. I've been asked to cover your appointment by your ob. I hope that's okay.
[ Horn blares in distance ] Hey. Hey. What's up? I had another chat with "shiloh." Yeah, sam said you were going to see him. Yeah. He made a point of reaching out. I want to know why. I mean, who is this guy? Shiloh or hank archer, sam's ex son-in-law. What's he want with her? Anyway, besides kim, he's the only person I know who remembers parts of my past that I don'T. So I want to know what type of game he's playing.
I've been spending half the time
[ Door opens, indistinct conversations ] -Hey. -Hi. Oh. Okay. Such a gentleman. Well, I like to say that "chivalry isn't dead -- just dazed."
[ Sighs ] Uh, well, I love the rib, so how could I say no? Well, thank you for meeting me. I -- um... I do have a question. Well, I don't have answers to everything -- I kn-- I know, but this...
[ Laughs ] ...This is about you. Oh. In that case, fire away. Okay, so as the leader of dawn of day, do you get a day off, or... ...are you playing hooky? Right now I'm just a guy having a coffee with a girl. Hey. Hey. Kristina, is it just me, or are you smiling? It does happen. Oh, it's -- it's just great to see the proof right in front of me. Well, it's why I asked you here. I want to talk to you about my new direction. Well, someone looks pleased with herself. Uh, someone is. I'm about to find out the truth about one sasha gilmore.
[ Eerie music plays ] You did a beautiful job. Thank you. Thank you so much. I love it! Hi. I have an appointment -- sasha gilmore. Actually, it's probably under "maxie jones."
[ Sighs ] D.A. Dawson. Hi, curtis. Is lulu available? Lulu: I'm right here.
[ Door closes ] What can i do for you? I'm here to prep you for your arraignment. Unless you're not up to facing franco today.
I started fishing for more information. Next thing I know, I'm doing all the talking. Turns out that shiloh -- he's very interested in what happened in afghanistan. Even though he knows that you don't remember? Oh, yeah, I went through that whole song and dance about how my memories were taken from me, transplanted with my long-lost twin'S. How'd he respond to that? He was caring. He was concerned. He was too anxious. The only real response I got from him was when I told him I wasn't having the procedure reversed. And then he relaxed. That seems weird. He always claims how close you guys were. I mean, why wouldn't he be disappointed? I wondered that, too. I mean, for all that talk how buddy-buddy we were and how I saved his life, he certainly seemed relieved that I... wasn't gonna remember anything. You know, your loyalty to your sister is, um... ...it's very compelling.
[ Chuckles ] Aren't sisters supposed to be loyal to each other? Well, ideally, yeah. Of course they are. But I find that most of the people that actually find us at dawn of day do so because their other support systems have failed them.
[ Sighs ] That is so sad. Why's that? I mean, it's just -- it's just sad in general just thinking about it. Mm. It makes me think that my sister wound up on your doorstep because of that. Well, it seems that both you and alexis are devoted to kristina's well-being. Oh. Yes, well, I mean, of course we're -- we're devoted. We're more than devoted. I think kristina's actually used the e-exact word. I-I expect that you -- you thought us to be distant or something, but we're not. We're actually kind of smothering.
[ Chuckles ] I must admit that my whole take on this thing might have been a little tainted. By? By the last time our lives intersected. Okay. I see. Go ahead. So, you're calling me out now?
[ Chuckles ] No. No, actually. I'm -- I'm, uh -- I'm not calling you out. I'm calling me out for having preconceived notions... for thinking that perhaps you were still the same person who... who stole your father's inheritance? You see? I don't even have to call you out. You do it all on your own. You do a good job, too. Come on. Stop, please. I don't want to play this game. You know as well as I do that people change, and I have changed. I-I-I am certainly not the same person that I was before. I have no idea who you were before. But this person, this person that I'm seeing now? Sam, I'm becoming more and more captivated by you. So, I'm guessing this is about your caper with sasha? It's not a "caper." It's a mission. Which consists of... I've already said too much. I don't want to jinx it. -Oh, well, far be it for me to compromise "the mission."
[ Chuckles ] I'm just gonna go ahead in here and get some food, go visit lulu. I haven't seen her in so long, I hope she remembers what I look like. Yeah, 'cause you're so forgettable. I have an idea. Why don't i stop by lulu's when I'm done with my mission and I'll give you an update? I'll be waiting with bated breath. As well you should. Door closes ] Kim, you know, our situation isn't urgent. We can just reschedule. Okay, well, that's completely up to you, but it doesn't really seem fair for me to know and you to have to wait for the results. So, you're -- you're saying...? According to the blood work... congratulations. You are officially pregnant.
[ Exhales sharply ] You are not required to be at franco's arraignment. If you're not up to it -- oh, no. I want to be there. I want franco to see me standing on my two feet, and I want that judge to look me in the eye before she even thinks about letting that psycho out on bail. Well, I'm sorry that I underestimated you. I'll make sure to have you sit directly behind the prosecution's table. Um, my mom will be with me. The mayor, even better. Just remember that today is all about his plea and the bail. Given that we know that franco is still insisting that he didn't do it, we know that he is going to plead "not guilty." And when he does, it is very important that you do not react. Do not dispute the plea or engage with the judge. You'll get your chance when we go to trial. Any questions? No. No, I think you covered everything. I have a question. How's franco?
Franco? How is the manwho tried to kill me? Uh, miserable and preparing for a lifetime in solitary, I hope!
[ Sighs ] Just exactly what are you asking? You have an eyewitness. You have a mountain of evidence. And despite everything that's about to rain down on franco, the guy still maintains that he's not guilty. You're saying that like it's unusual. I just have to wonder if he's had a complete break with reality. Otherwise, what's the motive for him throwing away everything that he's struggled to build -- to randomly kill three people or -- or to attack lulu without provocation? Well, that is a question for dr. Collins. I don't care
why franco did it -- just that he did and that I can prove it. I'll meet you at the courthouse.
[ Door closes ] It's very libe -- leingo of al your preconceived notions about yourself and your relationships and just letting your guard bewa I mean, that may sound like a cliché to you, but it's true. Hey, no -- cliché or not, whatever you're doing is definitely working for you. Ank you. Foying that and for not foing d my choices don't let your longwear weigh you down. New infallible fresh wear foundation by l'oreal. Get longwear coverage from our most lightweight, breathable formula. Defies sweat and transfer. Stays fresh. Feels light. All day to night. New infallible fresh wear by l'oreal. Were you able to dig up anything else on shiloh? Yeah, he founded a dawn of day house in beechers corners with, uh, this woman. She calls herself harmony, but her real name's lorraine miller. In fact, she was shiloh's right hand until -- until he moved to port charles. Okay. Then what happened? Well, she, uh -- she stayed in beechers corners. I don't know, man. She seems like she's hung up on the guy. She seemed a little upset that he moved on without her. Or maybe to the city where sam lives, the woman who fleeced his father. Exactly. And we've got spinelli digging, so if there's anything out there, he's gonna find it. I want to help, so, if I, uh, find out anything else about shiloh, I'll let you know. All right. Obviously I want to get to know you better. But what I would really like is for you to see me for who I really am. Hm. Interesting. Who do you think that is? Someone who doesn't pose a threat to your little sister. Okay. Listen, I can understand what kristina sees in you. Hm. I really do.
[ Inhales deeply ] But [Inhales] I know there's got to be more to you than this dawn of day guy, isn't there? I don't know. How bad you want to find out? I -- [ Laughs ] Well, let's just say that I'm the one who's compelled now.
[ Mug thuds ] Take a trip with me. What? A trip? Mm-hmm. I mean, w-- where do you want to go? You want to go to hawaii or fiji or something? No, I'm serious. I'm serious. Take a drive with me because there's something that I think you need to see to understand. Okay. You're not gonna give me a little hint as to what this "something" is? No. Nothing? No. Really? Mnh-mnh. Okay. Well, you seem to be pretty sure. I don't know. I don't know. Well, then follow your instincts. Whatever the right decision is, it'll help you make it. Lulu, I got to say... I do admire how you survived and how you're determined to move forward. To see justice done. Thank you. I got to say, though, I do know a little bit about criminal prosecution. And at some point, they're gonna want to know how you got away. Honestly... ...I have no idea. You don't? I thought hypnosis brought back the entire event, and not just the attack. I don't know how it works. But apparently I got so upset reliving franco attacking me that kevin brought me out of it before I could remember the rest. It's understandable. Do you think someday you'll want to see the rest of it? I've been thinking about that, actually. Um, I think that when franco is put away for good and I'm sleeping through the night, I am gonna ask kevin to put me back under. I think that remembering every moment of what happened that night will help me recover. Yeah. Well... good on you. It's very brave.
[ Doorbell rings ] No. Curtis, I'm sure it's fine. That depends on who you ask. -Peter. -Curtis. -Peter! Hey! -Lulu. It's so good to see you. Hey. I wanted to come visit you in the hospital, but apparently you had to be immediate family or maxie.
[ Laughs ] -For you. -Oh, wow. They're beautiful. Thank you. -Well, hey, look, I'm sure you guys want to catch up, so I'm gonna take off. -Thank you for everything.
[ Door closes ] So, you're okay? All things considered. Well, I'm not 100%, but... I'm standing here. And I have an incredible story to tell. I know it seems hypocritical of me. After all, if it weren't for valentin, I wouldn't even be in nina's life. When I first met valentin, he admitted that his greatest regret was losing nina. He made it sound like this lost love was the most romantic thing ever. Yeah, I'm sure it is, to him. Oh. No. Uh, could I have a tissue, please? Thanks. Uh, the thing is nina is just... too honest and too trusting. And she expects other people to be the same way. Just a polish change for me, please. Well, in all fairness, valentin admits to everything that nina's called him out on. All of his crimes and his mistakes. Yeah, that she knows of. Right. If only valentin was as good at changing his behavior as he is at apologizing for it. I mean, the second you think that guy's turned over a new leaf, he just has another dirty secret up his sleeve. Well, you appear to be spot-on about your conception date. New year's eve makes it a little more than six weeks, and the sonogram confirms it. Oh! That's our baby.
I did my best to discourage nina from accepting valentin's proposal. I threw everything that she had told me about him right back at her. All of her doubts, her history,
his history... how could that possibly backfire? Nina claims that hearing me saying it out loud made her realize that the past is the past. And her future is with valentin. Apparently, I put everything in perspective. I hate perspective.
[ Chuckles ] Perspective is the worst.
[ Sighs ] Who knew it would inspire her to run right back to him? It's classic nina. I have to say that... I have never met anyone like her. And I mean that in the very best way. Nathan was a lot like nina. I mean, they were total opposites in some ways. Like, nina's very impulsive, nathan was a planner. Nina leads with her emotions, nathan was really rational most of the time. But... he had her big heart. And her stubborn streak. Sounds like they made quite a pair.
[ Chuckles ] Now that nathan's gone, it'S... so much more important that people who love her, like you and me, that we protect her -- protect her against people who want to use that big heart of hers against her. Over the past few years, I've been more than a little frustrated and confused. I've realized this role that I've been playing of the "family screw-up" is -- oh, hey. Come on. Hey, hear me out. It's this role that I've created for myself -- always setting myself up to be a disappointment. Well, you know what? Just for the record, I have never been disappointed in you. That's because you've taken on the role of my protector. Okay. Well, I was trying to be supportive and sincere, but -- no. Don't get me wrong. I love you for that, and I always will. But I'm hoping instead of "protecting" me, you can invest in my future. I have a business proposal. Huh. Well, I thought you might. Unfortunately, I don't have access to my trust fund until I'm 30...
[ Papers rustle ] ...Which is why I'd like to borrow some money. Even though the gesture might be lost on yvonne, I couldn't give up my valentine's tradition of buying her candy. So instead of one large box, I sent a couple of cases of small boxes to the home.
[ Exhales sharply ] Enough for all the nurses and the patients. And from what I hear, they were a big hit. That was a very thoughtful gesture, marcus. And a -- and a healing one. I don't feel that "healed." Keeping that tradition alive was a healthy way to honor what you and yvonne shared. I didn't look at it that way, but you're right. Sending that candy made me feel better. A little bit, anyway. Well, a little better is still better, right?
[ Chuckles ] I like the way you look at the world. Well, you of all people know that I am not always rainbows and sunshine.
[ Chuckles ] Don't I, though?
[ Laughs ] Curtis. Hi, baby. Auntie. Hi.
[ Chuckles ] Mr. Godfrey. Marcus. Marcus. Your aunt here is a ray of sunshine today. Today? Isn't she always? We all know the answer to that.
[ Laughter ] I'm glad to see you, curtis. I owe you a long overdue thank you. How's that? If you hadn't sat me down to talk, your aunt and I might have missed an opportunity to close an old chapter in our history and become the friends we are today. And I am lucky to have her for a friend. For you. A little more practical than flowers. That's not my laptop. It is now. The police impounded your old one.
[ Sighs ] Fortunately, I was able to persuade them to clone your hard drive so you would not lose your work.
[ Exhales sharply ] That is amazing! Thank you! The whole time I have been away from this, it's felt like my right arm was missing. Now that I have it... bye-bye. I'm gonna get back to work. Oh, lulu. Absolutely not. No work until you're 100%, please. Okay. You have to stop thinking like a friend and start thinking like a publisher -- I have a great personal story for you to run on the front page. I'm not gonna profit off you reliving this attack of yours. Murphy will write the story. Um...no. Murphy can report on the events surrounding the crime, while I will be writing my firsthand account of how the attack felt. Lulu, it's one thing if you want to sort through it yourself. But to put it all out there publicly -- something so personally disturbing, it's -- my story will only be told through my eyes, with my voice. Of course, if you don't want to publish it, that's okay. There are plenty of people I can sell it to.
[ Sighs ]
[ Knock on door ]Uh, come in. -So... -hi. ...I have some, um, follow-up information. I have reviewed your chart, and there are a lot of factors here. Like my age. Okay, well, there are many women older than you who have babies. But your age coupled with your previous history means that... this pregnancy is -- high-risk. Right. What are the odds of carly having a stroke? Uh, right now, they're relatively low -- but that could change without warning, so I need you to be very careful about monitoring your blood pressure. Managing your stress, eating a healthy diet, managing your stress, sleeping, managing your stress. Did I mention -- managing my stress? I got it. I got it.
[ Laughing ] Okay. I'll make sure she takes it easy. Okay. Great. So, listen, though -- if anything -- anything feels off, just, please -- just call right away, okay? Yeah. Thanks, kim. Sure. I will schedule, um, another sonogram for a couple of weeks, and I'll fill your doctor in on -- on this visit. And, really, that's -- that's it. Okay. -Congratulations. -Thank you so much! [ Laughs ] -You're so welcome. -Okay. -It was my pleasure. -[ Sighs ]
[ Door closes ]
Maxie, help me out. Tell peter how difficult it is to get me to change my mind. Oh, god, he doesn't know that already?
[ Sighs ] Apparently not. Well, why don't you tell me what's going on here? Lulu wants to write a firsthand account of her attack, which I think might trigger some post-traumatic memories, which in turn could take a toll on her health. Throw in the towel, peter -- you've already lost. Thank you. I'm gonna go plug my new laptop in. I will be right back. You really think that lulu putting all of this down for posterity is a good idea? I think that if it's too much for her, she'll stop. And if it's not, you're gonna get an amazing story.
[ Chuckles ] So you're covered, either way. Well, I suppose you're right. So, what about you? How did it go with sasha? Did you get -- an amazing manicure and a bonus? Why, yes. Yes, I did. Nail clippings, baby. Dna samples from sasha gilmore. If you lend me the $1,500 I need, and I make payments
with interest, as I've written out right there -- I see it. If all goes according to plan, which it will, I should be able to pay you back in a matter of months. Well... I, uh -- I appreciate how well thought out your proposal is... but you won't lend me the money. I mean, come on, kristina. A loan with interest? You know you can go to dad and ask him for money for school, and he -- and he'd give it to you. Exactly. But that would be a gift -- or a handout. And that's the last thing that I want. You gonna say "no" to free money? But it wouldn't be "free." It would come at a cost -- namely my guilt and the feeling of failure for sponging off my parents again. I need to pay my own way.
[ Laughs ] I'm afraid I have to get going. Good to see you, curtis. -You, too, marcus. -Stella? -Yes? Coffee again soon? I'd like that. I like this color. It suits you. Well... it's nice seeing you have a friend. Friends are good to have. Hm.
[ Telephone ringing in distance ]
[ Elevator bell dings ] Kim. Hey. Hey! Long time no see. I think it's been, what, 48 hours?
[ Chuckles ] Wow, that long. Imagine.
[ Both laugh ] It's been nice to have a little reprieve from worrying about oscar, though, isn't it? I mean, not -- not that I'm not worried about him, of course, but... today I got to give people good news, so that was nice. Oh! Which [Laughs] I've been meaning to show you... okay.
[ Chuckles ] Wow. Look at that face even then. Yeah. Huh. Oscar's so much like you, drew. Hm. You ever wonder...?
[ Softly ] Never mind. What? Nah. Never mind. It's -- it's silly. No, no. Do I ever wonder what? Ms. Dawson? Hey. So good to see you. Hi. After your bereavement and loss seminar, I think it's safe to call me margaux. Margaux. I, uh -- I see that you signed up for a bunch more seminars. I, uh -- I can see they're resonating with you. It's very good. Yeah. Your... your
seminars are really helpingme reconnect with myself. And not a moment too soon. Well, that's good, but I find that people find dawn of day when they need it. So that timing that you're talking about -- it's, uh -- it's all you. Well, however the "timing" works, I was very lucky. So, um... what led you to dawn of day? I was... I was so desperate to achieve this certain outcome, and I-I betrayed a friend in the process. Betrayed? How so? If you don't mind me asking. No. Uh... no, I don't mind, but... you know what? It's, uh -- it's so out there, I don't think that you'll believe me. Try me. Okay. Um... basically, I was in possession of... I don't really know how to put this.
[ Both chuckle ] I was in possession of...information that was the key to my friend's past, a past that he couldn't remember. And... ...I valued my endgame more than his trust. I tried to use that information as leverage to get him to do something that he didn't want to do.
[ Cellphone chimes ] Jason. -Hey. -What are you doing here? Just -- just getting some air. What -- uh, what -- what are you doing? I lost something, and I think it was -- lost -- lost? What'd you lose? Uh, does it -- does it really matter? Uh, can i help you look? Okay. So, what did shiloh want? To chat me up. He wants me to go away with him. That would be a bad idea.
You know, something I, uh -- I learned from my bereavement group is how important it is to feel responsible for your own healing. So with that being said... yes, I will lend you the money, and I will let you pay me back with interest. Oh, my god, michael! Thank you so much! Yeah, yeah. I have one condition, though. You and I, we have to get together for lunch a lot more often. It's a deal. All right. Sasha. Nice to see you. You sound surprised. Uh, I am a little bit. You were so opposed to the idea of any mother than yours being the one that raised you. And yet, here you are in port charles. Yeah, well, you're not half as surprised as I am. When I first agreed to come here and meet nina, I promised myself that it was gonna be a drive-by. But then... nina. Nina. It's like she dares you not to care about her, and you just -- you just can't stop. Yeah. Well, I'm glad you feel that way. Look, I am the one that tracked you down, so that gives me a personal stake in this. I sure would hate to be the one that put nina in a position to be hurt. No one wants that. No. You know, when valentin hired me to find nina's daughter, I was skeptical. I mean, it was all too perfect, you know? He came up with the one way guaranteed to make nina forgive him. So naturally, I was on guard for a setup. But everything about you seems legit. You know, not just the dna test, but... you -- the connection with nina, the bond she feels with you. I really hope you're as genuine as you seem. Sasha's dna sample was the hard part. It shouldn't be a problem to get a sample from nina, and then we can find out if nina and sasha are really mother and daughter or if this is all some plot of valentin'S. Wow. Valentin is a formidable guy. But he's never gone up against anyone like you. Don't you forget it. Well, the temperature has certainly gone up since i left the room. Enough about me. Can we talk about the two of you? You know, sometimes I just -- I wonder what it would have been like if... we had raised oscar together. I mean, haven't you? The thought has crossed my mind. Yeah? So, um, what do you think? Think it would have been a disaster? [ Chuckles ] You being stationed all over the world, and me still sort of having to raise him by myself anyway? I don't know. Hey, look, you knew me then, you know me now. What do you think? Honest answer or wishful-thinking answer? Oh, let's go with honest.
[ Chuckles ] I think you would have been a wonderful father to our son. You sure that's not the wishful-thinking answer? It's both. Okay, so... what are you thinking? I know that's a lot to take in. Well, it's not like we haven't talked about it or thought about it. I know, but hearing it from a doctor, hearing out loud -- I mean -- kinda brings it home. Yeah.
[ Sighs ] So, what are you -- what are you thinking? What do you want to do? I believe that we have so many people in our lives who love us and who we get to love. I believe this baby's a blessing.
[ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ] Okay, so this -- this friend that you, uh -- betrayed? "Betrayed's" an awfully strong word. It's the right one. He trusted me, and I tried to take advantage. Tried and... failed? Yeah. I-I had this information, the key to his past -- the -- the life that he had lost -- literally in the palm of my hand. And he -- he refused to take the deal. Okay, now, when you say -- when you say "literally in the palm of your hand," you mean -- it was a flash drive. A file with everything. His life. Business records and stuff like that? That but mostly his personal memories. I mean, his whole life. So, what happened to this flash drive? My conscience got the better of me, and I gave it back to him hoping...
[Sighs] ...Hoping that maybe one day he would want to look back into his past, and maybe one day he will. I don't know. It's up to him. I don't -- I don't want you going anywhere with shiloh. It's too dangerous.
[ Stammers ] There's no way he can hurt me, not physically. I-I wouldn't be so sure. Spinelli got more info on dawn of day.
[ Inhales sharply ] I am going to go on this trip with shiloh. I'm gonna call monica and see if she can take care of the kids. You should call spinelli and figure out what's next. Okay. Hold on, hold on. Let's just -- what? Let's just slow down a second and -- and have some kind of plan. We have a plan, jason. To get all the information we can out of shiloh. Yeah, but that doesn't mean you have to go on this trip. Listen to me -- I know what I'm doing. This guy, he likes to run his mouth. He likes to talk. I'm gonna go on this trip and get the information we need so we don't have to pretend anymore and we can be together.
