Episode #14287 ~ Ava ducks out; Willow does her best; Lucas connects the dots.

(This still needs extensive editing)

Ava. That was quite a number. Well, thanks. The audience seemed to like it. You know, I've always found that the nurses' ball audience are probably the kindest audiences in the entire world. They will clap for just about anything, no matter how obvious and cliché. Well, just keep in mind, lucy, that everyone here -- especially me -- is here to serve the greater good. I just saw my darling ava give the performance of her life. It was like she was... singing just for me. And soon, she will learn that reports of my demise are, again, premature.

Your demise, my dear brother, however, promises to be oh so timely. Milo says you stopped by the house, left an uber waiting outside. I helped oscar record a message, and I, uh... I promised I'd give it to joss before the ball. Oscar wants josslyn to sing their song without him. Joss. Hey. Your mother was wondering where you were. Mm-hmm. Of course, I was, too, but, you know... I'd never say that 'cause I'm the cool dad. Okay, I'm coming. Sasha: You didn't like that last number? No, objectively, it was -- it was great. So, it's not the song that left you cold -- it's the performer. I-I-I can co-exist with ava jerome. I just draw the line at clapping for her. I think that's mine. Do I sense something's amiss? That little friend of yours, she has a mouth on her. Excuse me. So, that woman nina said -- nina doesn't know what she's talking about. Nina seemed pretty convinced that you have a child. I was on the fence about changing from a manual to an electric toothbrush. But my hygienist said going electric could lead to way cleaner teeth. She said, get the one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head.

Go pro with oral-B. Oral-b's

gentle rounded brush head

removes more plaque along the

gum line. For cleaner teeth and healthier gums.

And unlike sonicare, oral-b is the first electric toothbrush brand

accepted by the ada

for its effectiveness and

safety. What an amazing clean! I'll only use an oral-b!


Brush like a pro. ( ) You can't be serious with twizzlers. New magnum ice cream. Double sea salt caramel. Carefully made to be broken. Magnum ice cream.

from l'oreal. I work hard to protect this tookus. To take care of any messy situations. And put irritation in its place. And if I can get comfortable keeping this tookus safe and protected... you can get comfortable doing the same with yours. Preparation H. Get comfortable with it. What have you got? Curtis and mayor spencer found the place where ryan was hiding out. When they first questioned the owner, she lied about saying that she was out of town. Later, she called them, told them to come back. It was a trap. Ryan had actually killed the owner and ambushed laura and curtis. He left them immobilized, the place rigged to explode. Are they okay? They got out right before the house was blown to bits. They're headed back on a chopper now. What's the rcmp say? The canadians are canvassing the area. They've closed down all the nearest border crossings. I'm hearing a "but." Ryan has a big head start. He could be anywhere. I think we all know where ryan is going. Hey. Huh? You lose something? Just -- I'm looking for my plus-one. Yeah, about that, um... how's shiloh's "self-help" working for you? I'm learning a lot at -- at the dod. Brad seems to be getting a lot out of it, too. Out of what? Dawn of day. Oh.

[ Chuckles ] Thank you. Remember how anxious he was when we first got wiley? Yeah, I was, uh -- I was a mess. Mm.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, not anymore. Nope. Thanks to shiloh. Yep. I mean, brad used to wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night almost every night, terrified that we were gonna lose wiley. So, y-you're talking about willow tait? She's a good person, you know. Well, apparently, she's not good at minding her own business. So, I, uh -- I hear she's not gonna be teaching at pc elementary next year. That's because of you? I hope so. Uh, willow has herself to blame. She has a habit of interfering. Yes, apparently, she doesn't feel that valentin and i are suitable parents -- which is rich, when she gave up her own chance at motherhood. What do you mean? Yeah, apparently, she gave up her baby. [ Scoffs ] If you don't want your information known, don't blab it at the nurses' ball. Which one is mine? Um, I-I'll be right back. I gotta go check on something. I don't answer to you! Nina reeves is a self-involved drama queen -- and you ran away. Now I get it. That's why you hid. That's why you ran away. That's why you changed your name.

[ Exhales sharply ] 'Cause you weren't just hiding yourself -- I am not the only woman to run away from you! You were hiding -- you were hiding our child! I was taking my life back! You were hiding my baby! Don't you lie to me! Don't you lie to me! Tell me -- right now! Were you pregnant when you left dawn of day? Yes! Yes, I was!

[ Breathing shakily ] When I turned my back on you, I took our child with me! Hey, there. We have a lot more surprises coming at you, because that is the magic of the nurses' ball. And we're so proud that our community comes together to fight hiv and aids every year. And this next act is a perfect example of folks that are generous, extremely talented, and they make sure to get out for a good cause. So please give a very loud and warm welcome to ned and olivia quartermaine! Whoo!

[ Cheers and applause ]

[ "Get closer" plays ]

Darlin', if you want me to be closer to you

get closer to me

darlin', if you want me to be closer to you

get closer to me

darlin', if you want me to love, love only you

then love only me

darlin', if you want me to see, see only you

then see only me

there's a line

I can't cross over

it's no good for me

and it's no good for you

and there's a feelin'

deep down inside me

and I can't explain it

and you're wondering whyyyy

you say we've been like strangers


but I'm not the others you can wrap 'round your fingers


darlin', if you want me to be closer to you

get closer to me


if you want me to be closer to you

get closer to me

darlin', if you want me to love, love only you

then love only me

darlin', if you want me to see, see only you

then see only me

there was a time

yeah, baby

when I would come runnin'


and drop everything

for the touch of your hand in mine

and you were blind

and now you regret it

'cause I can't forget it

it's locked in my miiiiiind

and I can't go on livin'

day to day

wondering if we'll be here tomorrow

people change, and you're changin'

and I've given you my all


there's no more to borrow


darlin', if you want me to be closer to you

get closer to me

[ Cheers and applause ]

I have a child. Are you sure about that? What are you saying? How does it feel to be in the dark? Lied to, manipulated, powerless? Is it a boy or girl? How does it feel? Is it a boy or girl? You don't deserve to know. You tell me where my child is. I want to know where my child is. Beyond your reach. Where's my -- where's my child?! You tell me where my child is! There is no baby! I lost it! Alright? I had a miscarriage! I swear! I-I know you.

[ Whimpers ] I know you. I can see it on your face. I can see it in your eyes. Now you are gonna tell me... no. ...Where that child is. Do you understand me? There is no baby! Tell me where that child is right --

[ Breathing heavily ] You want willow? You come through me. Come on, darling. Don't let ms. Tait ruin your evening. The show has been absolutely incredible. Maybe next year, we could perform together. If, uh, I can make it, that is. Of course. Why wouldn't you make it? Make the cut, I mean. You would make the cut. There's nothing I'd rather do than perform with my daughter. That would be so much fun. Listen, I'm sorry about my mood. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm not gonna let ms. Tait ruin the nurses' ball for me, so... I think I know how I can salvage the evening.

[ Smooches ] Josslyn! Hey! You made it! It's so good to see you. I knew you'd make it because nothing keeps a jacks down for long. You want to go get backstage? Come on. I-I'm sorry. I can't sing. When I e-mailed you, you said it was okay. Y-yes. That is what I said, and it is okay. Really, really, it is. Don't worry. I-I'm just glad you're here, 'cause you look absolutely beautiful. I'll -- I'll -- I'll see you later.

[ Chuckles ] Um, could you excuse me? Carly: [ Sighs ] Hey, hey, you know, I think joss might need a minute. Oh, I'm not going after josslyn. I'm gonna go have a word with lucy. Uh, maybe that's not such a good idea, either. Why? 'Cause it might embarrass joss. That's why. Sorry. This is my fault. I'm sorry. I thought I did the right thing by delivering oscar's message. But I-I guess it was too much pressure. Sonny: Oscar trusted you with that message. You had to give it to josslyn. If she doesn't want to sing, she doesn't want to sing. It's up to her. Carly: [ Sighs ] Mm. So, what happens next? An apb has been sent out. We're setting up checkpoints on all roads into town. Hopefully, ryan knows better than to come back to port charles. We're working on getting you protection. Until then, you shouldn't be alone. Do you have somewhere you can go after the ball? There's a place I can go.

[indistinct conversations ] Oscar:

It's your turn now.

You still have

everything ahead of you.

And I want you to live life

to the fullest.

Starting tonight.

So, when you sing our song

at the nurses' ball,

just know you're singing it

for the both of us.

I love you.

[ Footsteps approaching ] Sorry, oscar. I just can'T. Hey.

[ Sighs ] Please don't tell my parents that I was crying. No, no, I'm not gonna do that. But I'm pretty sure they already know. I thought I was stronger than this. Are you disappointed in me? No. Not now, not ever. Oscar wouldn't be, either. How do you know? Because oscar loved you. And all he would want is for you to smile and... be happy. You want to know how I know? I had a friend who died a while ago. And I know tonight's about helping people with aids and hiv, but h-he... he didn't get the -- he didn't get the help. It was too late. Stone. And it took me -- it took me a long time to figure out that he never really left me. He's always there when I need him. He inspires me when times get tough. Oscar's doing the same thing for you. You just don't know it yet. But you will. Ava. Does it bother you that your date was a no-show? Scott, I don't have time for this, okay? Okay, when -- when you came offstage, who was there? Me. Where was kevin? Where's he now? Asleep in his soup. You deserve better, ava. You do!

[ Groans ] Look, scott -- oh, hello. Hi. Uh, this is ava jerome. I'm the owner of the cedar mountain property. Hi. I'd like to ask the caretaker to open the place up. Well, no, I know it's late, but I'm more than happy to pay quite generously. Thank you very much. I'm on my way up. You know, sometimes I wake up in the dead of night just to go check up on my kids. I mean, just to make sure they're there and they're -- and they're breathing. That's really what -- what's called being a parent. So you -- you two, you're -- you're doing just fine. You don't need anyone to tell you how to be a parent, especially someone who's never held their own kid before. You okay? Yeah. Look, you have pushed my family too far. If I were you, I'd leave port charles and never come back. No, I'm not going anywhere. Turns out I'm a father. I'll see you soon.

[ Crying ]

[ Applause ] Thank you so very, very much. Depending on who you ask, our next act is either the -- hm -- second, third, or maybe fourth most infamous cassadine. But what I definitely know is he is the most talented. So please welcome valentin cassadine.

[ Applause ]

[ "Nothing without you" plays ]

It's the quiet night that breaks me

I just can't stand the sight of this familiar place

it's the quiet night that breaks me

like a dozen paper cuts only I can trace

all my books are lying useless now

my maps will only show me how to lose my way

call my name, you know my name

and in that sound, everything will change

tell me it won't always be this hard

I am nothing without you

but I don't know who you are

it's the crowded room that breaks me

everybody looks so luminous and strangely young

it's the crowded room that's never heard

no one here can speak a word of my native tongue

I can't be among them anymore

I fold myself away before it burns me numb

oh, call my name, you know my name

and in your love, everything will change

tell me it won't always be this hard

I am nothing without you

but I don't know who you are

[ Song ends ]

[ Applause ] Uh, hold on, kevin. You and I are gonna have a little talk. Lucky for you, I'm in a hurry. No, you not going anywhere --

What the hell is this? Ryan?!

[ Thud ]

[ Grunts ] Well, scott, never let it be said you didn't have the upper hand.

[ Metal scrapes ] Lucy: This is a complete disaster! We are one number short. Now, of course, I don't really blame poor josslyn -- epiphany: You better not blame her, or you'll answer to her mother and her father and her stepfather -- and if that isn't enough, you'll answer to me. Did shiloh hurt you? No. Well, you know what? Chase is here somewhere. I'll find him. He can arrest that son of a bitch. Shiloh didn't do anything. Did you hear what he said? About my baby? Okay, why don't we just go inside, sit down. You can have some water, take a breath. And you can tell me everything, okay? Okay. Come on. Are you okay?

[ Exhales deeply, clears throat ] I just learned that someone betrayed me in the worst way possible. Mm. What do you mean? What happened? It turns out a woman had my child, and she never told me about it. Now, that's horrible.

[ Clears throat ] She claims that she lost the baby, but I know that she's lying. And my child is out there somewhere, and I'm gonna find it.

[ Footsteps approaching ] Hey. Did uncle sonny tell you where to find me? Yep. Then your mom and i flipped a coin to decide who would come and get you. And I won, because I've always been lucky like that. How you doing?

[ Voice breaking ] I feel like I'm letting everyone down. First of all, you're not letting anyone down. And secondly, the only opinion that you should care about is your own. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, joss. Just follow your heart, and you'll know what to do. What if the right thing is really, really hard?

[ Inhales deeply ] Well... I will be in your corner no matter what you do. Oscar will be, too. Lulu, when was the last time you talked to your mom? Why? What's going on? You'd better sit down.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

[ Piano music playing ]

The ball's almost over. Things are gonna get a little dicey as people are leaving. I don't like the setup -- all of ryan's most likely targets in one place. Yeah, I think we need to -- shiloh, please. What's that about? You know what -- I don't even care, as long as that sleaze is away from willow right now.

[ Footsteps approaching ] Detectives. My hotel is crawling with cops. My guests are starting to get nervous. What is going on? It's just a precaution, for their safety. From who? We've got confirmation from the rcmp that ryan chamberlain is alive and presumed to be on his way back to port charles.

[ Groans ] Oh!

[ Groans ] Scott, come on. Let me help you.

[ Groaning ] Oh, boy. Ow, my head is -- oh, you had a little too much fun tonight, huh?

[ Laughs ] Alright, I will call you a car. No! I've had no cocktails! Look, you are drunk! No! No! Okay, okay, okay. Hey, hey, hey. Look at me. Look at me.

[ Exhales sharply ] Breathe through the stillness. And let the peace roll through your body. There you go. Okay. There you go.

[ Inhales deeply ] Okay. Okay? I'm okay. Okay. I'm okay. No, no, no, no, no. No, no. Stay. Stay. Just give yourself a minute. Okay?

[ Exhales deeply ] You just found out that you're a father, and I'm -- I'm worried about you. Thank you. Thank you, sam. Thank you so much for your commitment to me and for your commitment to dawn of day. Thank you so much. Hey, you know what? I know what it's like to have a child taken away from you. And I don't want you to go through this alone. I appreciate you. Sam, now -- now more than ever, I need you. I need you. I need you by me. I need you to be in the trust, okay?

[ Piano music plays, indistinct conversations ] Lucas: Brad. I just had a terrible thought. About michael's friend willow... and your guru, shiloh. Is josslyn not coming back? Well, she had something she needed to do first. Lucy: Ladies and gentlemen, I'm so excited to say that our next performer, she is no stranger to the nurses' ball stage. I'm excited, I'm proud, and I'm so happy that she decided to return again. Please give a very, very warm welcome to miss josslyn jacks.

[ Applause ] Did you know about this? I had a feeling.

[ Applause continues ]

[ "A list of things to do" plays ]

There's just a list of things to do

words on a page we wrote for you

but now you're gone, and only these words remain

life is short, but the list is long

and they say hope lives on and on

but it's a cheating world that took you away

I want to erase the list we made

forget all the plans we never played

but that's all that I've got left of you

so what should I do

when I'm thinking of you?

Remember the good times and cry

I think I'll take that list

I'll take it for a ride

remember the good times and try

it's never goodbye

it's never goodbye

I'm tired of this sympathy

tomorrow's a word with no guarantee

but yesterday's words are still alive

so there's this list of things to do

and I'm gonna do them, I promise you

and if I get lost, I know you're by my side

so that's what I'll do

I'll keep thinking 'bout you

remember the good times and cry

yes, I'll take that list

I'll take it for a ride

remember the good times and try

it's never goodbye

it's never goodbye

[ Song ends ]

[ Applause ]

[ Insects chirping ]

[ Keys jingle ]

[ Latches click ] Come and get me, ryan. I am so proud of you. You were so amazing. Thank you. That was beautiful. So beautiful. You were right. He was there when I needed him. Lucy: Wow. That was so beautiful and amazing and heartfelt. And thank you. That was so gorgeous.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Applause ] You know, um... it reminds of why I am so very honored to be a part of this event every year. We make you laugh and we make you cry. The nurses' ball is about great big feelings -- and I hope great big money, big donations.

[ Laughs ] Um, we are getting to our closing number. Before we do that, I just -- I want to thank a few people. First off, you performers -- oh, my goodness. The performers were absolutely amazing.

[ Applause ] And I-I truly want to thank our backstage crew, because without all of these people, we couldn't do what we do. They keep us moving. They're the unsung heroes. Yay, crew!

[ Laughs ]

[ Applause ] And a very, very special thank-you to donna and to dale, and they know exactly why we're thanking them.

[ Laughs ]

[ Applause ] But most of all, I gotta thank all you guys. You actually showed up. You came with your pocketbooks and your cash and your compassion, and you care and you want to see change. And we are going to beat hiv and aids very soon, because every year, we get closer and closer.

[ Voice breaking ] So, thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. Thank you, lucy! Awesome, lucy!

[ Applause ] Sam, come with me. Come with me tonight. Come with me back to the house. It is time to initiate you in the trust. It's time to complete it. Come with me to the dod house tonight. Now? Yeah. Tonight? Yeah, tonight. Sam, there is a fight coming, okay? There is a fight coming. I can feel it. And I need your strength. You understand me? Samantha, give me... okay. ...Your strength. Okay, okay. Okay. Let's do it.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Chuckles ] I lied to shiloh. I-I told him that I lost the baby, but he obviously didn't buy it. He's gonna come for our child.

[ Inhales deeply ] C-come on, lucas. Uh, let's -- let's go home. W-willow used to be a member of dawn of day. And shiloh said he just found out that he has a kid. Willow went off on us about letting wiley near shiloh. You know, speaking of wiley, uh, we better get home brad, brad, brad, brad, brad, brad! And make sure he's sleeping soundly. You know what this means? Willow and shiloh are wiley's birth parents. I need an apb on ava jerome, and get a unit over to her penthouse. Alright. Mrs. Quartermaine, my guys are working with --

[ Groaning ] What happened here? Mr. Baldwin overindulged and fell down backstage. No, no, no, epiphany. That's not what happened. Well, no concussion, but he needs to go home. No. I'm -- I'm not liquored up. I was clubbed over the head by ryan! Look, I'm gonna, uh -- I'm gonna talk to chase about getting you some police protection while ryan's still at large, okay? Lucy: Hey! Kyle, rob, craig -- listen, guys, the metro court needs the ballroom back. How soon can we get the rigging down? Guys!

[ Gasps ] Oh!

[ Gasps ]

[ Cellphone ringing ]

[ Ringing stops ]
