(This still needs extensive editing)
[ Sighs ] Oh, hi, scott.
[ Door closes ] What are you doing here? Oh, for crying out loud, ava. I'd heard over the police scanner that you'd been arrested. Well, I don't need a lawyer this time. Well, I got a little news flash for you. You are not gonna walk into that arraignment alone. So... I'm here. Let me help you. You want to help me? Then bring me confirmation that I killed ryan chamberlain.
[ Monitor beeping ] Hey, baby.
[ Sighing ] Baby.
[ Sighs ] I don't know how you do it. Do what?
[ Coughs ] You wake up every morning looking so beautiful.
[ Scoffs ]
[ Chuckling ] Liar. Facts. I love you for saying so.
[ Sighs ] Whoa, whoa, careful. Look, why don't I get a nurse in here, let them know that you're awake, okay? I'm gonna get a nurse. Wait, what happened? Curtis... talk to me.
[ Sighs ] What do you remember? You... you came back from canada. But I need to know for sure. Did chase find ryan chamberlain? Chamberlain is still in surgery? Okay. Alright. Then keep me posted. Thanks. Hey. Oh. Hope I'm not interrupting. No, not at all. You know, you left the house so early this morning, I never had a chance to ask you just... how are you doing? Ah, well, um, that's kinda why I'm here. I've got a lot to take care of before kim and I leave town. You and kim are going away together? Hey, is that it? Hey, uh, yeah. Yeah, paperwork just arrived. You and drew will have no problems clearing customs when you land in tanzania. Thank you so much for helping me with this. No. It was nothing. I know how much this, uh, trip to mount kilimanjaro means to you. Yeah. Uh, I hope that -- I hope it brings you some peace. Me, too.
[ Sighs deeply ] I just wish I could make it easier for you. Oh, you are. Mm. And I know that oscar would want me to do this, so... oh, my passport.
[ Chuckles ] It's on the bureau, so I'll be -- I'll be back. Good. Yep.
[ Sighs ]
[ Cellphone rings ] Julian? Hey. It's me. I just wanted to thank you for expediting the paperwork that kim and drew will need, you know, for, uh, bringing oscar's ashes to mount kilimanjaro. Oh. Kim got the paperwork? Yeah, just now.
[ Chuckles ] I never thought things could move that fast. Well, I'm glad that I could help. Yeah, listen, I also owe you for, uh, getting me out of jail. Oh, you should really thank kevin for dropping the charges. Hmm. I suppose. I just wish all my problems were so easily solved. Wish kim a good trip for me. I will. I'll see you. Hey, I was just thanking alexis for greasing the wheels for your trip. Charlie, you got arrested? Why?
[ Sighs ]
[ Monitor beeping ] Hey.
[ Sighs ] How you feeling? I don't know. I guess like a huge weight has been lifted. Jason, I got to tell you. That was one of the hardest cons that I've ever had to run. And I hated pretending to believe in everything that shiloh said, because he is... disgusting. You know what? I'm gonna -- I'm gonna see if I can find monica and get a rush on this toxicology report. Okay? Okay, good, yeah. Good. The more leverage we have, the better.
[ Sighs ] Come in. Didn't expect to see you this morning. I am anxious to see how the plan to neutralize shiloh played out. Oh, well, uh, jason just called from general hospital, and he -- he said that, apparently, shiloh drugged sam, and they kept her there for -- overnight for observation, but she's fine, and she'll be coming home today. Yeah, I'm glad sam's okay, but -- but you didn't say -- how did the plan work?
[ Monitor beeping ]
[ Inhales deeply ] Sam? Hey. Please tell me jason failed. No matter how hard he tries, he can't keep us apart.
Well... is ryan dead or not? I-I don't know. I've been monitoring the news, you know. I don't know whether he died on the operating-room table or not. If he's dead or alive, I -- we live in hope. Ava, what happened? Justice happened. I put a knife in ryan's back, and my only regret is that I didn't twist it. Okay, listen to me. You can think that, but you can't say it. 'Cause if you say that in court and ryan dies, you're gonna be facing a murder rap. You make it sound like I've done something to be ashamed of. If ryan dies, I will be proud that I finally avenged my daughter. Okay, well, you call it what you want -- revenge, justice -- but when you go in the courtroom, you are going to plead "not guilty"! Tell me what happened with ryan. Baby, let's just make sure you're good first, and then we'll talk about work -- curtis! I need to know. Baby, relax. Relax, okay? Okay, um... ava used herself as bait. She was able to lure ryan to a remote cabin. I caught up to him there. Chase's team took him into custody. He's in a cell? Not exactly. Ava stabbed him in the back. He's here still in surgery. Will he make it? Don't know.
[ Sighs ] I can't blame ava for wanting ryan dead. Badge or no badge, I would want the same thing. Yeah, well, we need ryan to live. Curtis. What aren't you telling me? So, we leave today for tanzania. Oscar and I -- we never made that trip to kilimanjaro, so kim and I, we're going to take his ashes up there -- spread them. Make that his final resting place. And I wanted your blessing, because, uh, I know that the quartermaines are usually buried in the crypt, but... oh, no. Unh-unh. Not this time. I think kilimanjaro is just perfect for oscar. But if you don't mind, we -- we'll put his plaque in the crypt with the rest of the family. I'd like that. Oscar, he, uh -- he loved being a part of this family. Pretty special, you know? I feel like his spirit belongs on top of a mountain. Well, you know where he got that spirit from, don't you? I don't have a clue.
[ Chuckles ] It came naturally -- from his father. Uh... don't know about that, but I appreciate you saying it. I think it's a good idea. Hey, jason. What are you up to? Uh, got a second? Uh, don't want to interrupt. No. Oh, you're not interrupting. We're family, right? So, what we need now is the proof that shiloh actually drugged sam. We're gonna get that, and then that'll force him to return kristina's pledge. Well, that may lessen some of the self-criticism and self-blame kristina's carrying, but she still has a long way to go. You know, I really appreciate all that you're doing. You are clearly going beyond -- I'm still your therapist, and you're still my priority. It's been a long time since I've been anyone's priority. I'm not sure that, uh... I'm the one with the problem. No. That would be me. Jason's envy -- that can't hurt us. Hmm.
[ Chuckles ] My heart is so full. It is so full, knowing that you are still a true believer, that you are still listening to your own inner voice. You are so in love with yourself, aren't you? I mean, it -- it's you. You are the one who's in love with your own "inner voice." What? What? What are you saying? What am I saying? Game over, shiloh. Or hank. Or david. Whatever you want to call yourself. You -- you lose.
We've got you covered. "Guilty," "not guilty" -- what difference does it make as long as the bastard who killed my daughter is dead himself?! Because it makes a difference to me. I'm not gonna ruin my reputation here and let some snot-nosed district attorney win. This -- a first-year law student could handle this. It's called temporary insanity. Wow. Scott, you're wasting your breath.
[ Sighs ] If the D.A. Says that my actions were premeditated, she's absolutely right. I had every intention of killing ryan. And it didn't play out the way that I initially planned, but still, I'm hopeful and -- and reasonably sure I got the job done. Okay, ava. If you're into confessions, how about this?
You matter to me. Okay? Now, if you've given up on yourself, so be it. But I am never, ever gonna give up on you, ava. It was one night in lockup, no big deal. You spent a night in jail, and you didn't want to tell me, and it's no big deal? I don't -- I... okay, okay. I made the mistake of defending my sister's honor, and I took a swipe at kevin. But the charges were dropped, so it was a non-event. And you chose not to tell me because...of oscar? Kim -- c-come on, charlie. I heard you say that there were other problems. What else is there that you're not telling me? Listen to me. I'm a big boy. I can take care of myself. I know you can. But, listen, honey, no matter how much I'm hurting, I-I want to know if you're in trouble. I want to know if you need me.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Look, I --
[ Sighs ] Ah, it's baldwin. This might be about ava. Okay. Cops were looking for her last night. Hey. Baldwin, what's up? Julian, where are you? Have you heard the news? What news?
Ava's been arrested. What are you talking about? She's here at the pcpd. I need you down here -- now. I'm sorry. I have to go. Ava's been arrested.
[ Sighs ] Okay. I'll come with you. No, no, no. Hey, hey. Listen to me. You have a plane to catch and a mountain to climb in honor of your son. Okay, charlie, I -- no, no, no. Listen to me. When you're -- when you come back, I will be here. And I will be waiting for you, okay? You better be. Something else happened last night. I was relieved you were okay, but my heart was beating so fast, and I-I couldn't catch my breath. Baby, you had a cardiac episode. You mean a heart attack? But [Exhales sharply] Everything's under control. Just say it. Please. The dialysis -- it put a strain on your heart. If it continues, your heart will be compromised. But without dialysis... my kidney will fail. Is there anything I can do for you while you're gone? Mm. No, thanks. Well, maybe one. Uh, take those plans for the quartermaine tree house that oscar wanted and maybe, uh, get a head start building it. E-excuse me, but oscar expected the two of you to build it together. Oh, yeah. Okay, well, I'll order the supplies, and we can start to work on it when you get back. See you soon. Thanks. See you soon.
[ Sighs ] I didn't want to worry drew any further, but how is sam? She's, uh -- she's clear to go home. Oh, good.
[ Sighs ] I need you to expedite the toxicology report on sam's blood work. Can you do that? Because I need proof... that shiloh drugged her. Hey, honey. Uh, you don't look like you've had much sleep. I had a rough night. I can't stop thinking about sam. I know for a fact that she only got involved with dawn of day because of me. Kristina, your concern for your sister is admirable. More than that, it shows that, despite what shiloh wants to believe, he no longer has a hold on you. But he does. There's something about dawn of day that I haven't told you. Sam, how could you do -- I am so sick of listening to your voice! Do you know how hard it's been for me to stand there and listen to your self-serving garbage all the time? All I ever did was try to help you. Oh, really? That's all I ever did, and for that, your beloved jason threw me down a flight of stairs. Now that is called "attempted murder." Is it? Yeah. Do you have a witness? No, I don't think so. Because you abducted me, and we were alone in that tower, and I was too drugged-up to resist. Do you remember that?You willingly drank that tea. You willingly committed to the ceremony, and you willingly signed that pledge. You remember that?
[ Laughs ] That pledge? Yeah. That pledge is as bogus as that book that you wrote. What did molly call it? "Cliché and derivative"?
[ Door opens ] Do you have it? Sure do. What? What is that? Toxicology report. Proof that sam was drugged by you. No, she willingly drank that drink. Yeah, we have a recording that says different. You didn't record me -- I didn't give you my consent to record me. I did. And guess what. In the state of new york, that's all you need. Assault. Attempted rape. And who knows what else once the cops start to investigate. You are going to prison for a long time.
What the hell happened? Ryan chamberlain tried to resurrect himself, and the police think that ava tried to put an end to him once and for all. Why would they think that? Well, when he was handcuffed, she allegedly stuck a knife in his back. So, good for her? Well, did I mention that she's pleading guilty? That's crazy talk. Why would she do that? Yeah, it is crazy talk. I'm trying to go for temporary insanity, but she won't budge. Now, you need to go in there and talk to her while I try and change her arraignment. Okay? Yeah. You will be able to rest, kiki. Your killer is gonna pay.
[ Door opens ] Let me guess. Scott called you.
[ Door closes ]
[ Chuckles ] You know, I have to hand it to you. You really had me fooled with this whole "I love kevin" routine. I can only imagine how it messed with chamberlain's head, believing that you'd fallen in love with his twin brother. It's nice work. Just tell me, is he dead yet?
[ Sighs ] There have been no media alerts, so I'm guessing no. However, if that should change... premeditated murder. I know. I know the drill. You cannot plead guilty. Why shouldn't I? I set out to avenge my daughter, and that's what I did. I'm not gonna hide that. I'm proud of it. Josslyn.
[ Chuckles ] Hi, honey. Hi. Mm. Come on in, hon. I, um... I got your message. It's been weird, you know? We were together practically 24/7 before oscar passed, and, um... now I haven't seen you since his memorial. Yeah. I'm sorry, honey. I just -- I couldn't -- I couldn't face the nurses' ball.
[ Scoffs ] That's okay. I almost didn't go myself. But, um, cam brought a message to me from oscar. It was a video he had pre-recorded, and, in the message, he said that he wanted me to live my life -- and to start at the nurses' ball. By singing. Wow. I can only imagine how hard it was for you to get up on that stage. I know it sounds weird, but just when I thought I couldn't do it... oscar was there. I saw him. And, um... I didn't want to let him down, so I sang. It's not weird, honey. I'm sure he was there. He loved music. He loved you. Which is why [Chuckles] Drew and I are sure that oscar would want you to have this. We will get through this. I need a kidney transplant. Now. This isn't a quality-of-life issue anymore. This is life and death.
[ Sighs ] Now I know why you want ryan chamberlain to live. Kevin collins is a match. And ryan's his twin. That's it. Don't you see? If ryan lives, I... i will convince him to donate his kidney. And if he dies? I can't imagine that he's an organ donor. I'm going to save you, okay? And I don't care what it costs. I don't care how many favors I have to call in. I don't care where I have to go. I'll go there.
[ Chuckles ] Don't make me arrest you. Look, as ruthless as he was in hate... I'll be that in love, okay? I will find a way to get you that second chance at life that you deserve. From your lips to god's ears. There's really no point in reliving this nightmare anymore, so... okay, mom, just let me say this, please, while I still have the courage to face it -- let's let kristina say it in her own way. It's not what shiloh did. It's -- it's what I did. Before I could join the trust, I had to make an offering -- something secret, something deeply personal and important. You mean the pledge. You know what I gave him? No. Not unless you want to tell us. Sonny said he spoke to you last night. No, sonny threatened me last night. Sonny doesn't make threats.
[ Stammers ] Hold on, please. Um, y-you have no idea how hard I had to work to convince sonny to let me deal with you myself. I mean, yes, kristina is my sister, but sonny -- he is the father, and he's a very over-protective father. You know what? I would not be surprised if sonny dealt with you himself after all. I mean, not right now -- there's too much scrutiny. Yeah, after you're, uh, convicted and sent to pentonville, when everyone's forgotten about you... ...accidents happen. What do you want? Kristina's pledge. Or we give you up to the cops.
The truth is, I ought to be getting a medal. Yeah, I'm not sure the D.A. Would agree with that. The D.A. Who called off the search? The D.A. Who gave a serial killer a free pass? I never believed that ryan was dead, and I out-manipulated him. I had the son of a bitch at gunpoint, and the only reason I didn't pull the trigger is that curtis showed up and told me about his wife needing a kidney and ryan being a match. Well, there you go. We have curtis ashford testify to your state of mind. Curtis said that kiki would want me to help save jordan. And he's probably right about that. Kiki was too generous for her own good, but I know better. I know the only way to get justice in this world is to take it! Okay, ava, I need you to see, okay? Please. If you flush your life down the drain... chamberlain wins. Is that what you want? Does this mean I have to start taking lessons? Well [Chuckles] What do you think oscar would say? That I should start working on my calluses. Let's see if I can remember what he taught me.
[ Guitar strums ]
[ Knock on door ] Oh, that must be drew. Excuse me.
[ Sighs ] Hey. Hey. Ready? Hey, there. Josslyn: Hi.
[ Door closes ] Looks good on you. Thank you. I wanted joss to have that before we left town. Oh, where are you going? Well, uh... we're taking the trip that I was never able to make with oscar. You're going to mount kilimanjaro? Yep, that's where we're going. To say goodbye to our son. Hello. Hey, doc. Um...I was just explaining to my wife that, uh, we're gonna get a new kidney for her. We're gonna find one. That's the plan. Do you have any questions for me? Is ryan chamberlain out of surgery? Jordan... no. Now, stand down, commissioner. You've had a very serious cardiac episode, and you can't afford to have any more strain on your heart. So, you need to take a leave of absence and let somebody else do your job. You heard that? Doctor's orders, baby. I mean, after all, you helped save port charles from a monster. The least we can do is help give you back your life. When shiloh asked me to reveal something important and personal, my first thought was to share how I tried to blackmail parker, but that's not what shiloh wanted. It wasn'T... neil: Useful enough. He wanted something he could hold onto to cash in later. Yeah, although I was too stupid to see that at the time. Kristina, you were betrayed by someone that you trusted. Yeah, and now we're all going to pay the price. Why? What exactly did you tell him? Something about my family. So, if I turn over the pledge, that's the end of this? I mean, it's already over. You will never bother kristina again. It's up to you if you want to walk away from this or not. Okay. Fine. Sam: Huh? I'll cooperate. Wise decision. Where are they? The pledges. The place where you almost killed me.
I lured a man to a cabin with every intention of killing him, and then I stabbed him in the back in front of police witnesses.
[ Sighs ] Not temporary insanity. I was never more sane, never more sure of anything in my life. So how the hell could I get around that? Look, I can deal with those questions. What I can't deal with is you giving up. So, from here on out, you need to keep your mouth shut and do exactly as scotty says. Together, we're gonna find a way to... get you out of this. You and scott. My knights in shining armor. Look, ava, you wanted revenge for kiki's death, right? Then you need to plead "not guilty." Because if ryan lives and he ends up in ferncliff while you're in prison, you'll never be able to finish what you started. Well, um... as you guys know, oscar talked a lot about kilimanjaro. Yeah. Especially after he got really sick. Talked to me about the geological features and the different paths to the summit, and... he'd, uh... he'd want you to take him there. He wouldn't want to be in an -- in an urn in a vault somewhere. He'd want to be under the stars... and if he knew that you guys were doing it
[Voice breaking] Together, that'd make him even happier. Um... hey, can we, uh, drop you off at home on the way to the airport? Yeah. Um, actually, I think I'm gonna stop by the park -- oscar's meadow -- and see if I can remember the chords he taught me. That sounds like a lovely plan. Thank you for this. You know, I -- I'd say, I hope you think about oscar when you play it... I'm always thinking of him. Well, you guys, have a great trip. Uh, take lots of pictures. Oh, we will. Bye, sweetheart. Bye, honey.
[ Door closes ] You know, josslyn has been through so much, and she stays so strong. Yeah, well, she's not the only one.
[ Monitor beeping ] How is she? Well, she has elevated blood pressure and a low-grade fever, and I'm gonna be honest with you -- the sooner we find you a kidney, the better.
[ Sighs ] We just need chamberlain to make it through surgery. Oh, actually, I was gonna check on him now. Dr. Quartermaine? Yeah. Thank you. Well, like I said, we owe you. I don't know what's harder -- accepting that my heart nearly stopped or agreeing to a leave of absence.
[ Sighs ] Baby, you will be back to fighting for truth and justice in no time. But until then, all you got to do is just get better. Okay? And let me pamper you. Let me fluff your pillows. Let me, uh... spoon-feed you rocky road ice cream... or absolutely whatever you need. I've got everything I need. Right here. Honey, I-I don't want you to worry about it. Whatever you said to shiloh about the family, we'll deal with it. I'm gonna go because, if this is a family matter, it's best to keep it that way. Thanks for understanding, and thank you for all the help that you've given me. Well, there's more where that came from. I'm just a phone call away. I'll talk to you later. Thank you.
[ Door opens ] Okay.
[ Door closes ] You were very brave to come forward. Whatever secret you told shiloh, your father will take care of it. Wait, dad? It's -- it's not about him. With you by my side, I can do anything. I know that now. I know that now. We were destined to be together. We were destined. We fulfill each other on every level. We fulfill each other, sam. We were destined together. It starts tonight. No. Yes. Yes. Yes. Are you okay? Yeah, I'm -- I'm sorry. No, don't -- don't apologize. I -- you can wait downstairs. I-I can do this. No. No, no, no. I'm -- I'm gonna be okay, jason. I just -- I-I look at this table, and I thought I could fight him off, and I couldn't, and I just keep thinking about kristina, and she... she wouldn't have had anyone. I had you to come get me. And she would've been alone. No, she wasn't because you were looking out for her. That's right. Let's get this done, huh? Yeah.
I promised myself I wasn't going to cry on your shoulder anymore. Why would you do that? What else am I good for? I'm gonna need all your strength to climb up that mountain. Probably a whole lot more once we make it to the top. That's why we're doing it together. We got a plane to catch. Yes, we do. Let's go.
[ Door opens ] Thanks. You know something? It never occurred to me that ryan might live. The bastard. And he would. He would just end up back at ferncliff or some other institution for the criminally insane. And kiki's murder [Sighs] Goes unavenged.
[ Door opens ] Alright, listen. I spoke to judge biel. I moved your arraignment to this afternoon. I hope you've convinced ava to fight. I'm convinced. "Not guilty" it is. Okay. That's my girl. Well, don't just stand there looking good. Start earning your fee. You know, we've never even taken our honeymoon to fiji. In fact, why don't we start looking up, uh, hotels and flights?
[ Monitor beeps ] What? I mean, after everything we've been through, some sun and some sand might do us some good.
[ Chuckles ] I love you. I love you. Well, ryan is out of surgery. So, he's -- he's gonna make it. I wish I could be more reassuring, but, uh, at the moment, it's too early to tell. Even if he makes it, why would ryan consent to giving me a kidney? So, shiloh needed leverage that he could use against you or against someone that you love. I'm so sorry. So, if the secret isn't about your father... ...it's about me. Found them. Oh, are you sure? Well, they look just like the ones I found at the dawn of day house. Okay, well, uh, how do we know if they're real? We're gonna have to open one. I pick her. Okay. Looks real to me. Alright, well... better find kristina's, then. That's it.
[ Chuckles ] Shiloh is finally finished. Not yet. But we're close.
