(This still needs extensive editing)hey. It's finally happening.
[ Chuckles ]
Bond we share,
it's just --
it's like nothing
I've ever felt before.
[ Sighs ] Okay. What did I miss? Just got started. Shiloh: I'm looking forward
to this, sam. I'm looking forward to completing this transition and sealing your bond with me.
[ Sighs deeply ] This is why willow went off about us letting wiley near shiloh. You -- you get that, right? Lucas, will you calm down? How can I calm down, brad? Just enough to think this through. Yes, willow may have had shiloh's baby. But what are the odds that baby just happens to be our son? Well, it's -- it's not as odd as it sounds. I mean, if you add up everything that I just laid out, the only logical conclusion
[Sighs] Is that the child that willow hid from shiloh is wiley.
[ Monitor beeping ] Mom? Hey. Hey, it's T.J. What happened? The infection on top of dialysis knocked you out. But you're on the mend now. How are you feeling? I've been better. Yeah. Where's curtis? I'm sure we'll hear from him soon. Felicia: You got that last buckle? Lucy: I'm almost there. I'm almost there. Wait. Alright, his, uh -- his pulse is strong, he's breathing steadily. Hang in there, doc. Hang in there. Thank god. Got it! Got it! Got it! We need paramedics in the main ballroom of the metro court. A man's been attacked. He's unconscious, and we don't know the extent of his injuries... oh, my god. What happened?! Detective chase is still in the hotel -- I'll go find him. Kevin! Oh, my god. What happened?! We were breaking down the stage. The crew was helping me. They opened the curtain, and there was doc hanging from the rigging. Who -- who would do this to him? It's ryan. Kevin. Kevin? Is that you?
Hey, hey, hey. Look at you. Look how tense you are.
[ Chuckles ] I mean, not that I, uh, blame you...
[ Sighs ] ...After finding out. What, finding that the person that you trust most in the world is hiding your child from you? Yes. Yeah. And you have every right to be upset, okay? Hmm. Even outraged. But I-I don't think outrage is your thing. You know, it's not -- it's not that. It's bad enough that willow...was doing that. It's bad enough that willow hid my child from me. It's bad enough she did that, but it's not just that. It's all of the things that willow and I could have accomplished,
all the things
that we could've done. Willow? That's michael's friend, the one who helped out kristina. No wonder she's so terrified of shiloh. Yeah. Just one thing at a time. Come on, sam. Get him back on track. Hey, willow has taken so much from you already. Don't let her ruin this night for us. Please. Why don't we go home so we can talk this all through? So you admit there is something to talk through. Wiley is not willow's son. Or shiloh'S. He is ours! Open your eyes, brad. H-how many times did we just happen to bump into willow? Lucas, she's friends with michael, wiley's very doting godparent. There was bound to be some overlap. W-what about the way that she reacted when she found out that you wanted to take wiley to dawn of day? She was on the verge of a panic. Okay, what if you're right and I'm wrong? What if wiley is her biological child? Legally, he still belongs to us. Nothing can change that -- no, no, no, no. No, no. That's wrong. If she knowingly kept wiley's existence from his biological father, we could lose our son.
[ Sighs ]
[ Groaning ]
[ Grunts ] Laura? Yeah. Oh, thank god. I was afraid something happened. Ryan. Ryan's here! Yes, I know. We figured that out when we found you literally hanging from the rafters. Come on, now. Lay back down.
[ Groans ] Come on now. Just rest and wait for the paramedics.
[ Sighs ] Here you go. Thanks. Yeah, things were pretty garbled on that phone call. Can you take me through it again? Yeah, well, long story short, laura and I were able to track down the woman that hired the kid to steal the drugs for chamberlain. Her name was april tremblay. We believe that she was harboring chamberlain in her home. When we went back to talk with her, man, she was dead -- stabbed right in the chest. The next thing we know, we're waking up. I got a massive headache. We're tied to chairs in a room that's quickly filling up with gas.
[ Sighs ] Well, at least you guys got out okay. Yeah, well, just barely because, as soon as we got out the door, the whole thing exploded. Alright, thanks. Yeah. Look, as soon as, uh, chase releases us, I can take you home. Don't worry. I'm fine. Willow, it's okay if you're not. Shiloh is a threat, and he has to be dealt with. But you know what? You're not in this alone. I'm starting to realize that.
[ Sighs, grunts ] He must have been waiting in the dressing room. I ordered two dozen roses to present to ava when she finished her number... ava. Where's ava? Oh, kevin. Thank god you're safe. When I heard ryan was back, I -- you...what? I was just so afraid I might have lost you, too. Would you have been lost without me, my love? Of course I would be. You know that. Kevin, what is the matter with you? You have no idea how much I've missed you. Ryan...? I hope you're not too disappointed, "sweetheart."
[ Gasps ] Disappointed? Do you have any idea how much I've prayed for this moment? And you know me. I-I -- you don't pray.
[ Both laugh ] Desperate times. Oh, god.
[ Glass thuds ] It's you. I just can't believe you're her-- not so fast... my darling.
[ Laughs ] Something funny? No! I... I've just missed you so much. Ever since that awful night, I -- ryan... will you please put the knife down? Why would I do that? Because I want you to hold me. I want you to put your arms around me. I want you to kiss me -- you mean the way my brother did? I mean, it's been his arms that have been holding you. It's been him that you've been kissing all over social media.
[ Sighs ] You saw that? Yes, I did. And it made me sick. Tell me... did you find comfort in his weakness? Were you happy with someone who could never,
ever challenge you? Why, ryan chamberlain. I do believe you're jealous. Oh. Is he what you want? I think it's pretty obvious what I want. If you would look past your own jealousy and into my eyes, I think that you could see it. Your brother was a poor substitute for the man that I love.
[ Voice breaking ] But he was the next best thing to you. Hey. Take back what is yours, shiloh. Don't let her or anything ruin this night. This is for -- for us to be here tonight. You're right. You're right. It's time. It's time for your induction into the ceremony, into the trust, tonight. I forget how good sam is. She's playing it perfectly. But this is where it gets complicated, because if -- if shiloh follows his pattern... he's gonna drug her. This tea will help you relax. It'll also dull the discomfort while I give you the tattoo. You know, I-I told you, I don't -- I don't need it -- i want to experience everything. I know. I know how brave you were with the pain last time. But this shouldn't be a fight. And this will ensure a peaceful transition. I don't know. I re-- I really don't need it. Sam, it's for the best. You trust me, don't you? Yes [Chuckles] Of course I trust you. That's why I'm here. She's gonna drink it.
[ Sighs ]
[ Monitor beeping ] How are your pain levels? Manageable.
[ Cellphone chimes ] Thank you. Well, hit the call button if you need another dose. Okay. Okay, uh... this is interesting. Uncle curtis just texted me from michael corinthos' phone. "Back in pc. Be there asap. Tell your mom I heart her." Why didn't he just call? He probably thought you were sleeping or didn't want to tire you out if you weren'T. Which means he's a smart man. Well, did he say anything about ryan chamberlain? I just read you the entire text. Okay, well, I need to know if ryan's still alive. Call detective chase. Mom. You need to rest, okay? I'm sure uncle curtis will answer all of your questions when he gets here. Pupils are equal and reactive, but I recommend that you go get checked out by a doctor and have a ct scan. Duly noted. We can transport you. No, thanks. I need to stay here. Kevin, are you sure about that? I'm not the one at risk. Ava is. Ms. Jerome assured me she had a safe place to go. Yeah, but he's right. We do have to know where she is. Maybe she'll kill him. A girl can dream.
[ Indistinct conversation ] Excuse me. I'll be right back. Hey, I am so sorry for deserting you. It's all right. I don't think it is. Something's bothering you. No, it c-- it can wait. You're dealing with a case. Come on, it's me. Just tell me. Shiloh knows about the baby. How? I was on the phone with my lawyer, and nina reeves overheard. Then she and I got in a fight -- and she made a dig about me not keeping my child, and shiloh heard her. Willow, don't worry. We're gonna make sure shiloh goes nowhere near your baby. Thank you. Listen, with chamberlain still at large, I don't know when I'm gonna be able to take you -- hey, I-I-I'll make sure she gets home safely. Guys, it's -- it's fine. I can take care of myself. You've told us time and time again how dangerous shiloh is. How, if he ever found out, he would stop at nothing to get his hands on your baby. And now he knows, so I'm -- I'm with michael. I think you should let him escort you home. That's very generous -- no, it's selfish. I very selfishly want you to be safe. Okay. I guess I'm outvoted.
[ Sighs ] Good. Thank you for doing this. And I'll text you tonight or call you tomorrow. If things go well, maybe both. Be careful. I will. You ready? Yeah. I'm fine. No concussion. Yeah. That's what we know now. But sometimes the symptoms don't show up for hours. I was hanging from the rigging? Yeah, in a straitjacket. Your brother is nothing if not consistent. How'd you get me down? Teamwork. O-o-o-okay, okay. Wait a minute. Excuse me. Why is no one surprised that ryan is still alive and that he tried to kill kevin tonight? Why?! Excuse me, uh... oh! I sent a text to T.J. He told me that jordan is awake, so if...oh. Yeah, yeah, go. Go, please. And give her my love. And thank you so much. You saved my life. Back at you, partner. Madame D.A. I heard ryan chamberlain is alive and well and back in port charles. Detective chase. What exactly are we doing to catch him? Damage control, margaux? With all due respect, madame mayor -- with all "due respect," D.A. Dawson, a woman is dead because of you!
[ Sighs ] Let's just go home and call alexis. She'll be able to tell us what our options are -- that's my point, brad. We shouldn't even be having to have a conversation about options. Wh-- do you have any idea how badly you've screwed us? Okay, wait. Hol-- just calm down -- wiley is our son. And because of your unwillingness to even bother to let the biological father know that you were gonna give him up, now we might lose him. Lucas, please. For the sake of our child, stop. Wait, h-- wait, wait, wait. The baby you gave up for adoption is my godson? Yes.
[ Stammers ] How -- how -- how long did you -- okay. Obviously, I knew that brad and dr. Jones were going to adopt my baby. But it was only after we'd gotten to know each other and you told me your godson's name that I realized. Why didn't you say anything then? Shiloh. Shiloh. T-t-this doesn't make any sense. Why would you keep your baby a secret from shiloh, of all people? If anyone would make a great dad --
[ Scoffs ] Shiloh is a monster! Dawn of day has helped a lot of people. They've helped me so much. Dawn of day is a cult, brad! So just to be clear... you gave up wiley so shiloh wouldn't know about him. That's right. But now shiloh knows. You called off the search for ryan chamberlain, and now at least one woman is dead in canada, that I know of. I made an educated decision. Is that what you call it, really?! The canadian officials had already called off their search and declared ryan chamberlain "presumed dead." That is not an educated decision -- it's an arrogant assumption. You must've seen the records at the pcpd. You must've known how many times ryan was believed dead, but somehow survived. Curtis ashford and i nearly died in an explosion because you called off the search. Well, I'm going to need all of your full statements as soon as you're ready to give them. You're going to get them. Detective chase?
[ Sighs ] The roadblocks and checkpoints haven't turned anything up yet. Two of ryan's last three victims before his disappearance have been accounted for -- lulu falconeri and carly corinthos. We do not have a location on ava jerome. Well, we need to find her before ryan does. I warned you all this "plan" to lure ryan back could be dangerous. Well, great, it worked. Now he's back. Kevin, laura, and curtis were almost killed. For everyone's safety, it's time to bring the authorities up to speed. Wait, wait. W-what plan are we talking about now? My husband and ava jerome were pretending to be in a relationship to make ryan jealous and hopefully bring him out into the open. Oh! [ Laughs ] I knew it. I knew doc would never fall for that sleazy tramp. I have to hand it to you. If you're lying... you put on one hell of a show. I'm glad you find my heartbreak so entertaining. There is one thing you can do for me to convince me of your sincerity. Tell me about kiki. What about kiki? I killed her. So, as my brother would ask... how's that make you feel?
[ Monitor beeping ] Hey, T. T.J.: Good, you're here. How's she doing? Her infection's better, but her stress levels...
[ Scoffs ] I'm sure that's all on me. Let's just say she's been very worried about you. Curtis? Baby? Baby, I'm right here. Ryan chamberlain. Did you catch him? Oh, honey, we'll talk about that later. No, tell me now. I need to know what's happening. He, um... yeah, I found him, and he got away. But -- but don't worry, okay? Chase has the whole force on it. So, wait. He's here?
[ Monitor beeping rapidly ] Ryan chamberlain is in port charles?! Baby...
[ Gasping ] She's in v-tach! Jordan! Mom! T., What -- baby...
[ Needle buzzing ] Usually, harmony does this. She likes to make them large and ostentatious. But I figured since it was you, a smaller, more intimate emblem... would be appropriate. Does it hurt?
[ Slurring ] N-n-- not as bad as it did before. Okay, good.
[ Buzzing stops ] Well... you are my most prized student. After all... I figured it's only right that... only my hands would touch you.
[ Sighing ] Wow. It's time, sam.
[ Groans ] Oh, t-- that tea is a lot stronger than I thought. It's time for me to show you a new dawn. That's it. Time to move.
You must hate me. I'm the one that killed her... the one that you loved most in the world. And then I took you to bed so I could use you as my alibi. I did love kiki. I grieve for her. I always will. But you had no way of knowing that. All I ever talked about was how much pain her betrayal caused me. But I'm the one who did it. I murdered her. I know you did. And I know why you did. You just -- you -- you did what you thought needed to be done to stop my pain. Pain that she caused. And the truth is, as much as I wanted to love kiki, in the end, all there was left between my daughter and me was pain. So, you see, you didn't take away what I love the most. You freed me. And now I realize what I love most in the world is you. I hope you feel the same. No one will ever love you as much as I do. No. I don't think they will. Ms. Coe, it appears you were not part of this plan to lure ryan out of hiding. You know, you're right. Apparently, I was not privy to this conspiracy. Then I'm going to have to ask you to leave. What? You're not directly involved. Therefore, you can't supply me with relevant information. So, please, I need you to clear out the ballroom.
[ Sighs ] Fine. But let me just say in passing -- you botched this horribly. Ta.
[ Sighs ] Okay, does someone want to give me the details? It was my idea. I know firsthand what it's like to be the center of ryan's obsession. So I knew if he was still alive, he wouldn't be able to stay away from ava. And since the search was called off, we had to go on the offensive. So, you took the law into your own hands? Well, somebody had to. And it's not illegal to lie about your relationship. Ryan killed ava's daughter, presumably out of his love for her. He tried to take ava over the falls with him. It wasn't a great leap to presume that he might come back here to find her. Especially if he found out that she was with you. Exactly. That's why part of the plan involved ava and kevin keeping their relationship as publicly visible as possible. Look, we established clear ground rules. If ryan appears, we contact the police. That's great. That'S...just great. Detective chase, you're with me.
[ Sighs ] Yes, ma'am. What do you need? This is not just a mess. This is a mess with a rising body count. And I need you to get the job done. We're taking all available measures. Okay, great. If you can bring in chamberlain, excellent. But...if anyone is in immediate danger, you are authorized to use full lethal force. I don't think you can do that. I'm prepared to take the responsibility if I have to. I don't need another kiki jerome. So...I just need you to get this job done. Yes, ma'am. Understood. Why the hell did I tell your mom about ryan? Because she asked. You know how stubborn my mom is. She makes her own choices, and no one can tell her different. Not me and not you. Yeah, well, I guess you make a strong point. Yeah.
[ Sighs ] Your mom is about as strong and stubborn as they come. And that's why she's gonna get through this.
[ Elevator bell dings ] Oh, curtis, T.J. I'll be out in a minute with an update. Dr. Quartermaine? Why the hell is the chief of cardiology here? Shiloh doesn't want you here. Jason: Sonny -- I got this. Go! How are we supposed to protect wiley when his biological father hasn't even given up his rights? He was never supposed to find out. Then how did he? I thought that I had gotten away from shiloh. I started a new life here in port charles. I didn't realize that dawn of day founded a branch here. And then when shiloh found me, I made plans to leave town. Okay, why didn't you come to me for help? You know, I didn't think there was anything you could do to help. Because shiloh's some unstoppable monster?
[ Sighs ] Have you ever met someone who is so good at getting around the rules, getting around the law that he literally gets away with murder? Yeah, I know the type. That's shiloh. He never even knew I was pregnant. If I had left town when I wanted to, then he would've never known about the baby. Then what stopped you? You did, brad. Me? Why -- why would I -- I learned that you were getting involved in dawn of day. That you were going to take wiley to the dod house. To shiloh. I didn't know shiloh was -- a-and I certainly wouldn't let him do wh-whatever you think he was gonna do to my own son. And from what I've seen at dawn of day, with my own eyes, I'm sorry, I'm having a really hard time wrapping my head around the whole evil shiloh thing. I mean, w-what has he done that's so bad? Well, blackmail, extortion, drugging, and sexual coercion -- for starters. Where did they go? I think I know. Alright, you go. I'll stay here. I'll try to get some answers from one of his dawnies in his "trust."
Jordan is stable, and you can go see her as soon as nurse is finished. But first, uh, we need to talk. Okay, when you say stable, how long do you think that will last? I really, really don't know, but listen, it is not uncommon for a dialysis patient to go into cardiac arrest. Especially if there's an underlying heart condition. N-no, jordan's in excellent health. I mean, she -- she takes amazing care of herself. Well, I'm sure she does, but as I said, there is an underlying arrhythmia. Now, that -- that's common. It's not life-threatening. T.J.: Unless you're on dialysis.
[ Sighs ] Yeah. I'm afraid her heart can't sustain continued dialysis. But without dialysis, she'll die. And if she stays on it, her heart will give up. She is at the top of the transplant list. And I'll put in a-another alert request. Look, look. I just don't understand, okay? We already have a match. Kevin collins tested positive, and he already agreed to the surgery. Oh. My uncle hasn't heard yet. He just -- just got back into town. What? I'm sorry, but, uh, dr. Collins has a separate medical condition that rules him out. At the moment, there is no viable donor for your wife. Val, I need you to send uniforms to ava jerome's art gallery and to her house. See if there's any indication of where she might be. Also, put a bolo out on her. Thanks. I'm worried about you. We really should get you to the hospital. I will if you will. At least I wasn't in an explosion.
[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I guess when all this is over, we should both go together and get checked out. I don't think it's an accident that we can't reach ava. I think this was her plan all along. Which is what, exactly? Same as it's been from the start. Justice for her daughter. Ava deliberately chose to lose contact with us so s-she could go after ryan and no one would be around to stop her. You know... I saw you perform tonight at the nurses' ball. You were magnificent. I'm glad you enjoyed it. You know, the whole time I was up there, I imagined I was singing that song for you. Of course I never dreamed that you could make your way to me so quickly. Hmm. But you believed that I would be back. Oh, yes. Well, that's why you jumped. That's why you took me with you. You never intended to die. You wanted us both to live. And once I realized that, I knew that you would find me. And here I am. How did you find me, by the way? I will always find you. Is that a promise or a threat?
[ Chuckles ] Why can't it be both?
[ Chuckles ] You're incorrigible.
[ Chuckles ] You know, that night in niagara falls, you told me that we could travel the world, that we could leave port charles and everybody in it behind. Is that still possible? Is that something you want? More than anything. Because you said you'd never leave avery. Well, that's how I felt at the time. But truthfully... as much as I love that little girl, I know that, inevitably, she will disappoint me. And that love will end. The only real, true, permanent love I have is right here. Ryan, I never loved you more than I did that night in niagara falls. When you told me that we could make each other whole, do you remember what I said? That I was your gift. You were. I can be that again. Well, that's the question, isn't it? Can you really give me what I need?
Look, ms. Tait, I'm really sorry for whatever you went through with dawn of day and shiloh, but if he is as bad a guy as you say he is, then we've got -- which I still haven't heard any specifics --
[ Sighing ] Oh, my god. B-brad, brad, I've witnessed firsthand the kind of damage shiloh can do. He did it to my sister. And I saw him threatening willow. And there's no mistaking it.I didn't say anything -- you're still trying to defend him. Look, look, look, okay? Shiloh will do everything he can to get his hands on wiley. We need to work together to protect him.
[ Sighing ] Okay. What the hell? You know, it's funny. When you called and demanded that I meet you here, I wondered if I'd find a body. And, lo and behold, there were two right at the front door when I walked in. Yeah, they were just taking a nap. You know what, margaux? For -- for a place that keeps its door open to the community, they didn't really, uh, welcome me with open arms.
[ Scoffs ] Well, in case you haven't heard, I have a serial killer on the loose, so... oh, the -- the search you called off? One in the same. I'm here. What do you want? Your fearless leader. Where's shiloh? Shh.
[ Exhales deeply ]
[ Weakly ] Where are we? In our special place. The place we get to see our first new dawn together. That's what you want, isn't it? No. No. Oh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. This is what we've been planning for. It's that final moment when you become mine.
[ Ventilator hissing ] I-I don't know how to do this. How can we tell my mom that -- that s-she may only have a week left to live? We won't have to, T. 'Cause she ain't gonna die. Yeah. Yeah, not -- not on our watch. Kevin was a match. So is ryan chamberlain. I would like to advise you all if you see ryan chamberlain, please let us know... and then keep as far away from him as possible. Do not follow. Do not engage. Is that understood? Has there been a change, detective? The parameters of the manhunt have been escalated. What does that mean? It means they're no longer trying to catch him. The pcpd has been directed to take whatever action necessary to "stop" ryan chamberlain. You think ryan chamberlain can save mom? Maybe. I just need to get to him. And then maybe your mom will have a chance. I love you. All I've ever wanted is to fulfill your dreams. Oh, you are. Just by being here. You found your way back to me. Ryan, we can be together, but I -- what? What's wrong? It's the knife, ryan. It's a little disconcerting.
[ Chuckles ] Sorry. Mm. Force of habit. Now... where were we? Right here. Right at the start of our happily-ever-after. The one we deserve, because you and I... we really are two halves of a whole. Same sides of the same coin, right? We understand each other better than anyone else ever could. And finally, I know why that is. Why?
[ Gun cocks ] Because neither of us is afraid to watch the other die.
[ Engines shut off ]
