(This still needs extensive editing)so you're telling me you planning on leaving my son out in the cold? No one said anything about leaving him behind. Then tell me I'm wrong. Tell me that you got the okay to go find my son and bring him home. Shiloh wants me to meet him at the metro court. Did he give you any indication of where you might be going? No, he still wouldn't say.
[ Sighs ] He's testing you. Okay, which is good because if I go with him with no questions asked, he'll trust me. I know that you hate this -- y-yeah, I do. But this is the way we have to play it. Okay, we got to make sure that shiloh is not playing you. That's fine, T.J. Your mom is not even here yet. Look, we both know how busy you are.
[ Chuckles ] There you go. Look here, we'll see you when we see you. All right. Tell you what, if T.J. Thinks he's busy now, wait till he's chief of staff. Yeah, right? I was hoping I could grab a quick cup of coffee with him while I was here dropping off lulu. How's she doing? Physically, she's fine. But I got to tell you, that arraignment really got the better of her. Yeah, well, she's not the only one.
[ Breathing heavily ]
[ Footsteps approaching ]
[ Knock on glass ]
[ Gasps ] Oh, god. Terry! Sorry, biz. I was on my way out, and I saw you sitting here. I didn't mean to scare you. I guess I should have known better than to sneak up. Is everything okay?
[ Exhales deeply ] No. No. Far from it. You're gonna have to talk me through this one more time. You are going to grant one lucky reporter a no-holds-barred interview. You're gonna give the performance of a lifetime...
[ Sighs ] ...Describing each murder. You'll boast about your achievements, your brilliance, your art. You'll hit the killer in the one place that he's vulnerable -- his ego. He won't be able to keep from revealing himself to you. Hmm. That's a good idea. Mm-hmm. Turn the tables -- manipulate the manipulator. It will be a very effective tactic. Mm-hmm. There's only one problem. What's that? I'm not doing that. Carly! Kevin. Good evening. A bottle of your best champagne, please. We are celebrating a major event. Ava and I are getting married. How's your wife feel about that? Hello?! Can you hear me?! Laura. Laura, please. Rest. You've been at it for hours... I've looked everywhere in this room for another way to get out. Our best hope is that someone is going to hear me. Well, if they could hear us, they would have been here by now.
[ Sighs ] I think we need to just take a step back and regroup. Besides, I miss you.
[ Sighs ] Yes, well, I guess that is the silver lining to this very, very dark cloud. We may be in the basement of ferncliff and held captive by a madman, but, hey... we are together.
[ Chuckles ] So you're confirming that anna was a subject in your study? No, he's lying. It never happened! You don't remember participating in the study because you weren't supposed to.
Okay. Your phone's set up, my phone's set up. I can track you while you're with shiloh, even though I can't see you. And I'm gonna have to keep a distance. I can handle myself. Shiloh may just want to get me alone so he can brainwash me with some more of the dod propaganda. Well, that's -- that's what I'm worried about. We don't even know what you're walking into. Which is why I'm gonna keep my eyes open. And if something goes wrong, I know you've got my back. I regret to say, you were drugged and abducted. A necessary evil to advance the cause of science... you're lying. Are you saying there are no stretches of time when you can't remember what happened to you? Anna? I don't know. I don't know. How else to explain your exposure to hn-242? I adapted the virus to facilitate the protocol. There seemed to be no adverse reaction at the time. I-I consider blindness an "adverse reaction." The virus was an important ingredient in the serum. Whoever was exposed to the serum was infected with the virus, which remained dormant for many years, but has recently begun to manifest, causing sudden blindness. You son of a bitch! When was I taken?! -No, no, no. No, no, no, no. -How long was I held?! -No, no, no, no, no. Easy, easy. Okay, okay. Easy, easy. All right.
[ Breathing heavily ] I need answers from him! I know you do. I know you -- but what -- let's just take a minute and calm down before, you know, we -- we strangle our only lead. I want to smash his face! I understand. I know. But before -- before you smash his face, we need to keep him talking, all right? We need to get more information out of him, right? Let's consider that we got confirmation of our suspicion, right? T-that -- that you were, in fact, infected with the hn-242. Okay. Okay. Okay? Okay.
[ Sniffles ] But what does that really tell us? You know, it doesn't explain kevin, what happened to him, because he wasn't part of a twin study. His brother's been dead for, I don't know, 25 years or something. Last I heard, you were still married to laura. Well, you sure know how to spoil a moment. Plenty of other restaurants in town. As you well know, laura and i are getting divorced. It's merely a formality at this point, and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with ava. Be a part of her family, and, of course, you'll find this beneficial, as well. In what universe? I'm an expert in conflict mediation. I can help you and ava navigate co-parenting with avery, and avery will find it beneficial to have one more stable person in her life. You helped me when I was in ferncliff, so all I'm gonna say is that you're anything but stable right now. We reserve the right to refuse service, so mind your manners. Well, as much as I enjoyed that, you may have just kicked the hornet's nest. You know, you make an enemy of sonny and carly, they'll just cause trouble for us. Well, I could just kill them. I know I've been awol for a few weeks. I'm sorry.
[ Sniffles ] I didn't mean to be a bad friend. Don't be silly. Your patient list is full, and oscar needed you. I can still find time to be a friend. When franco was arrested, you were confident it was a mistake and that he'd be exonerated. I know. I know. I was so sure everything was gonna work out, and [Exhales deeply] I don't know. All that changed today. What hap-- I was really hoping that I could just pull it together before my shift started.
[ Sniffles ]
[ Exhales deeply ] What happened? Franco pled guilty at his arraignment. Oh, my god, biz. I -- I don't know what to say. He's not guilty. That much I know for sure. Something else is going on.
[ Sighs ] Pleading guilty in front of elizabeth, without being able to explain to her what was happening -- that felt horrible. That was awful. And now you want me to spread that lie in front of the entire world? So, what exactly did you think that the plan was here? You sit back, get evaluated, and hope for the best? You said you needed time so you could catch the real killer. I've given you some time. The killer wants you to take the blame for those murders, but he wants the credit. His ego will betray him. That's why you need to get under his skin so that he'll confront you. How do you know he's not just gonna kill me?
Dante did the wsb a favor. They wanted him to track raj. He did that. Now what? You're gonna -- you're gonna leave him dangling? It's a political issue. We just can't risk violating sovereign borders. Since when? I promise, I'm not gonna stop until I get dante back here. But I need a bit of time. Also I don't need you out there making waves. We can't afford to alert hostiles as to dante's whereabouts. You understand? Yeah. I'll be in touch.
[ Elevator bell dings ] Brick. It's me. I need your help. Where have you been hiding this delicious wit, dr. Collins? What can I say? You bring out the best in me. Mm. Well, I plan to do that for the rest of our lives. Mm. But, you know, carly did have a point. We can't move forward until laura signs those divorce papers. So maybe we're getting a bit ahead of ourselves celebrating like this. No! I mean... why should we put our happiness on hold? Tell you what. Order whatever you like. Just make sure it's the best. I'll be right back. -What? We just -- we just got here. Where are you going? Wrapping up a few loose ends. Laura, I'm so sorry. It's not your fault. I should have known better. I should have thought it through. I should have taken precautions... you had to be shocked to discover that your brother was still alive. That's probably why he was able to get a jump on you. Well, it must have sucked to hear franco plead guilty. Yeah, it sucked.
[ Sighs ] But I can't shake the feeling that maybe it was some sort of maneuver. I don't know, maybe franco has an agenda somewhere, some ulterior motive. Or maybe I'm just kidding myself. No, you're not. There's just more going on than you realize. Ferncliff is a secure facility. If someone is unauthorized to be here, we'll know. Well, what if the killer's authorized to be here? Take this. It's a burner. Hide it from the staff -- they don't know that I'm giving it to you. If you're in a jam, call me. But understand, this is a last resort, so don't just -- what are you doing? I'm doing what I should have done from the start. I'm calling elizabeth, and I'm telling her the truth. I know franco is innocent. I know there's got to be some other reason he pled guilty. Okay. You think I'm crazy, don't you? For believing in him? The truth is, I-I don't know franco all that well. So I don't share the same faith in him that you have. But... I have faith in you. And if you believe there's more to this story, then I trust you. Thanks.
[ Sniffles ] But if franco doesn't trust me, I'm not sure we stand a chance. Excuse me. Carly: Yeah? I'm supposed to meet someone -- shiloh? Hey. Sam. Hi. How are you? Good. Uh, this is shiloh? It is, yes. Shiloh, uh, this is -- carly corinthos. Hi. How are ya? Hi. Well, I heard about all the good work you're doing in the community. My daughter helped with the clothes drive last fall... oh, fantastic. So you're kristina's stepmother? I am, yes. Kristina's very important to me. Well, I guess we should get going. It's getting pretty late already. Yeah. Yeah, it is. Well, it was such a pleasure meeting you. Yes, you, too. Take care. Mm-hmm. Been meaning to ask you, you still haven't told me where exactly you're taking me. Well, it's because it's a surprise.
[ Chuckles ] That's -- that's great and all, but... I do have children. And they're with their grandmother, and it's probably a good idea I tell her where I'm going. Well, by placing trust in others, we learn to further trust ourselves. Look, sam, I know you've got reservations about what it is that we do here at dawn of day. But I promise you, once you see what I have to show you, all your doubts will disappear.
So we think kevin collins may have been used in these experiments, too? I don't know if he would remember. You know, it's possible that -- that this study took place back when ryan was still alive. Hmm. Well, it's a good thing we have access to someone who can give us all the answers. Dr. Cabot: Have you all calmed down? We have more questions for you. I'd like to point out that there's no immunity deal for you here. So, uh, it would go a long way towards softening your sentence if you were, say, cooperative. Ask away. What do you want to know? Your superiors at the dvx -- they would never have signed off on a study like this unless it had a real-world purpose. So, what was your objective? To transfer memories from one person to another. I put all my faith in franco, from the moment he was even considered a suspect. I trusted him, and that trust never wavered. So much that I... you what? I married him. Last night, at the police station. Because I wasn't gonna let the world tell me what kind of man he is!
[ Sighs ] Married, huh? Guess my invitation got lost in the mail. No present for you. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm a mess. But I just [Sniffles] Thought I could sit here for a few minutes and cry it out, but it's not helping. That's because you don't want to cry, biz. You want to scream.
[ Sighs ] Franco, stop. Nope. Nope. If I'm putting my face out there as the real killer...
[ Dial tone ] ...I have to warn elizabeth. What is that sound? What's wrong -- your phone sucks. It's blocked from making any calls that aren't to my number. I guess you thought of everything, didn't you? I know this is tough, but I promise you, the less elizabeth knows, the safer she'll be. It's ironic. I spent months having conversations with you, what I would say, how I would say it, if I ever had the chance. And now here you are. You're -- you're warm, and you're real, and you're right by my side, and... I can't find the words. Don't try so hard. Just say how you feel.
[ Lock disengages ]
[ Whispers ] He's back. Ryan: So... ...how's the big reunion going? Isn't laura a sight for sore eyes? Oh, oops. Guess not. This isn't like you, brother. Every time you come visit us, you risk being seen. Why would you take a chance like that unless things on the outside aren't going as planned? Unless your elaborate charade is beginning to unravel? Laura: Yeah, I think you're onto something, kevin. He does look sort of harried and flustered, but would you say nervous? On the contrary. I'm totally committed to this course of action. I've come to finish what I started.
[ Door opens ] Shiloh: And...
[ Switch clicks ] ...We're here. -I see. And where is "here" anyway? Burke lake. I've never heard of it. Well, there's really no reason why you should have. It's a small town, located in a tiny corner of lake ontario. Really is beautiful, though. Guess I'm gonna have to take your word for it. See, this tower -- this tower used to be operated by the harbormaster, but it's been vacant for years. Well, when I left afghanistan and I made my way back to the states, I was looking for a way to change my life, but I had no idea how to do it. So I wandered around aimlessly until I found this town, until I found this tower. It's, uh, cozy. You know, I mean, I'd never heard of this place. I'd never been here. I had no idea it existed. Can only call it fate. Well, why do you think you were led here? Let me show you.
[ Dramatic music plays ] The reason crying hasn't worked for you is because you're not sad. Um, my husband just pled guilty to multiple murders. I-I'm pretty sad. You can feel sorry for franco, but it's okay to be furious with him for keeping you in the dark, too. I just wish I understood -- you're angry, biz. You need to feel it. You need to let it out so you can get on with your day. So, if you need to scream, go ahead and scream! No, I don't want to scream. Why not? Because.
[ Sniffles ] You're embarrassed? Who cares? It's just me. Scream. Terry... feel the anger, biz. Scream at everyone who's let you down or underestimated you. Come on! Do it! Let it out!
[ Screams ] Feeling better?
[ Sniffles ] Yeah. Got any more in you? Yeah.
[ Sighs deeply ] I'm going to loop in one of my other detectives -- one that I can trust, but until then, you need to do your part. Okay. What's that? You're due one official phone call on ferncliff's landline. Call your lawyer and set up an interview. Yeah, my father's my lawyer. He's not gonna be happy about this whole interview thing. Well, convince him.
[ Sarcastically ] Oh, okay. Another good plan. You are just
so full of good plans. I'm going to be late to dinner with my son.
[ Cellphone rings ] What? It's my only contact with the outside world. I had to make sure it worked.
[ Door closes ] Do you know something about franco's guilty plea? Did jordan tell you something? No. She's, um -- she's holding her cards close. But let's just say that, um,
my hunch is that
your hunch is correct. But why is that? I can't see the big picture yet, bro, okay? It's just pieces. I know that's not much. -No, but it's something. Laura: Don't get any closer to me. -What's happening? -He's got a knife. Well, not quite, but... it will do the trick. You leave her alone, ryan. You'll have to go through me to get to her. Aren't you jumpy? Listen, I'm not here to take your lives, as satisfying as that sounds. No, there's something I need from you first. He has an envelope. Which I am using my letter opener to open. This is my signed duplicate of our divorce papers. Or I should say your divorce papers.
[ Paper rustles ] You know, my lawyer wanted me to mail these to you, laura, but we both knew that you wouldn't be at home. So, if you don't mind... go to hell. Well, that's tempting, but there's someplace else I'd rather be. I wish you weren't so obstinate... you want to sever ties with me so that you can marry ava jerome. I'm not gonna help you to hurt her any more than you already have. Let's review this, shall we? I'm armed. I'm stronger than you. And, unlike your husband, I can see. Now we can play this out to its logical, bloody conclusion -- or you can cooperate. What's it going to be?
[ Indistinct conversations ] What is she doing here? Celebrating her engagement. With kevin? That's right. You're not stressing, are you? No, not at all. Not one bit. What about you? Where did you go? Uh, met with robert scorpio. It's not good news. The wsb can't go after dante without a diplomatic incident. So you're planning on going to find dante, aren't you? Of course, I could just forge laura's signature and kill you both right now. Stay the hell away from her. Listen to you! Where's all your calm, shrink-y demeanor? Laura, get behind me. Yes, laura, do that. That way, I can mortally wound kevin, leave him lying on the floor and bleeding out while I end your life. What could be a worse torture than that? I'll sign it. Thought you might.
[ Pen clicks ] You forgot the little yellow stickies in the back.
[ Papers rustling ]
[ Pen scratching ]
[ Pen clicks ] Thank you.
[ Whispers ] Come here.
[ Ryan chuckles ] He's gone.
[ Lock engages ]
[ Breathing heavily ] Dr. Cabot: The study could produce a painless, efficient way to extract information. No need to intimidate, coerce, or torture. Memories are simply transferred into the mind of someone else... you and your sister were in the first trial. What are you saying? That you -- you tried to extract memories from me to give to alex? The other way around, actually. The experiment was something of a bust, then. Anna doesn't have alex's memories. Y-you failed. No, he didn'T. Wow, it seems like there hasn't been a person in this place for years. Yeah. No one lives here, but... it's far from empty. I understand, um, this place is special to you. What happened to you here?
[ Window creaks ]
[ Cellphone vibrates ]
Well, I came across
when I was looking
for some purpose. I remember being drawn to the shore, and I remember standing, and I was looking at this -- this -- this vast expanse of water, you know. And in the moonlight, I saw -- I saw this. I saw this tower, and I thought to myself, "yeah, okay, that's gonna be my shelter." So, I came in, and I found this room, and I curled up right there on the floor. And I fell asleep -- cold and alone. But a few hours later, I was -- I was awakened.
I was awakened by this
This brilliant light,
this... this powerful, powerful light. It was -- it was the break of dawn, and it was the most beautiful thing I ever saw. Dawn of day. Precisely. You see, that was it. That was it. That was -- that was my moment of clarity. And right then, right then, I knew -- I knew what I had to do. I knew that my job and my calling was to bring that light to as many people as I possibly could. Now, that's, uh -- that is a beautiful story. I just don't know why you couldn't have told me that back in port charles. Because you have to experience it. You have to experience it personally because it's very intimate. And once you see that dawn break, sam, you'll know your path.
I-I spoke with brick to figure out a way to get me across the turkish border. I have no doubt that brick can get you in. The question is, can he get you out in one piece? He -- brick's a professional. He's gonna make the arrangements. I just, uh... I don't want to leave you, but it -- it's not gonna be long. No, you should go. Go. And bring dante home so he can meet his new brother or sister.
[ Laughs ] Thank you. Thank you for forcing me to get that out.
[ Engine starts in distance ] I think I can handle going into work now.
[ Keys jingle ]
[ Car beeping ]
[ Beeping stops ]
[ Sniffles ] Terry: You sure? I can always cover for you. Make a big show of how sick you looked. It'll be like high school.
[ Chuckles ] Remember those absence excuses I used to write for mrs. Durant...? Yes. Thank you, but no.
[ Sniffles ] I should get to work. I mean, I actually need to work. Well, I'm still a night owl. When your shift ends, if you need a friend to grab a drink with or just talk or scream again...
[ Laughs ] ...I'm here. Thank you.
[ Sighs ] Franco: Hey, pops. It's me. I need to ask you a favor. I need for you to get in touch with somebody at the invader for me, please. I just -- I think it's time I tell the world my side of the story. All set? Absolutely. Well, what -- what are these? I had a hunch, so I went back to my office. Those were waiting for me. Laura signed them? I guess she finally decided to put our marriage to bed. To us. Nothing can stand in our way now.
[ Glasses clink ] Are you disappointed in me for caving? No. I'm glad you did. Nothing would delight my brother more than to take the person I love more than anything away from me, knowing I was powerless to stop it. Is this what it was like to live with ryan? I mean, did he always just take everything you created and destroy it? No part of my life was safe. Oh, kevin. I'm so sorry for everything you've been through with this man.
[ Sighs ] And now our marriage is officially over, and that leaves him free to do god-knows-what with ava. God, I'm so sorry. I wish I could have figured this out, but it never occurred to me that -- I mean, everybody thought that ryan died 25 years ago. It doesn't matter. We're together, and we're going to get out of this. And I'm gonna marry you all over again, laura collins. You know, sunrise is hours away. You didn't say anything about spending the night. Well, you said the children are with their grandmother, right? -Yeah. -So no harm there. I mean, it's not as if you have anyone to go home to. Sam, only a select few make the pilgrimage. And when they see the light, they are forever changed. Um... you know, this is just moving a little too fast for me. Sam. Spend the night with me. You'll see. Hey, elizabeth. It's drew. Uh, stopped by G.H., But you hadn't started your shift yet. We need to talk, okay? Call me. It's about franco.
[ Seat belt clicks ]
[ Engine starts ] Are you saying you have some of alex's memories? No. No. He wasn't able to transfer any of her memories to me. But your work didn't stop there, did it? Andre maddox took your study, and he used it as a basis to develop his procedure, right? As I understand it, dr. Maddox was able to build on my work to achieve a fully effective procedure. -Right. -A-and this means what? It means that there are two other unwilling participants in this study!
[ Groans ]
[ Gun clatters ] Did you hear that?
[ Footsteps approaching ] J-jason! Hey, jason. Can you hear me? Hey, chase. It's jordan. Hit me back. I want to loop you in on an operation that I've been working.
[ Horn honks ]
[ Screams ]
[ Engine revs ]
