(This still needs extensive editing)what are you up to? I just saw my first firefly. Really? Yeah.
[ Laughs ] Do you remember when morgan kept trying to get the fireflies to follow him in the house? [ Laughs ] He was so determined that he -- he didn't want to catch it 'cause he wanted the firefly to come to him, so that way, they -- they -- they could be friends. Yeah.
[ Both laugh ] Oh, he loved this time of year. School was ending. Summer was on its way. He'd leave the house, and he wouldn't come back till dinner. Mm. Josslyn's the same way.
[ Sighs ] But not this year. There's no excitement for her. There's no smile, no laughter, and I don't know what to do about it.
[ Sighing ] Oh, sonny.
[ Sniffles ] Josslyn: Hey, hey, hey. Listen, I, um -- I took a lesson online to help build on the chords oscar was teaching me, so listen.
[ Strums guitar ] And then... hey. Hey. Uh, I, um... I wasn't sure if you wanted me to keep the urn in my room or if you wanted it in yours or... or maybe that was just a -- a -- a silly question.
[ Chuckles ] Shouldn't have asked. Hey, whoa. Y-you think that's a good idea? Drinking more coffee? I think you need your sleep. We got a -- we got a long, hard climb ahead of us tomorrow. And I'll be ready. Yeah, but it'S... it's kilimanjaro. You know, the -- the biggest mountain in africa or... okay, you know what? I don't want to sleep. No, I-I can't believe that bastard won't give you his kidney. I mean, ryan has basically given you a death sentence. Thomas... if this is really it for me... I want you to forgive. I want you to forgive ryan, thomas. And forgive me.
[ Door opens ]
[ Monitor beeping ]
[ Beeping quickens ]
[ Alarm blaring ]
[ Gasping ]
[ Sighs ] I take it chamberlain refuses to save jordan?
[ Alarm blaring, monitor beeping rapidly ] Elizabeth: He's seizing. Okay. Hey, help me get him on his side.
[ Gasping ] Easy. Okay. Alright.
[ Grunting ]
[ Beeping slows ] Here we go. It's alright. Alright. I think he's coming out of it.
[ Breathing heavily ] Ryan? Hey. Can you hear me? It's dr. Finn. You had a seizure.
[ Softly ] What? Don't -- don't try to talk. Alright? We're gonna take you for some tests, try to figure out why this happened, alright? That way, we can prevent it from happening again. Don't let me die. Cameron: When'd you become a doctor? Not sure what you mean. I-I'm just wondering what you need those gloves for. Kim? Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Stop, stop, stop, stop. Hey. Can you talk to me for a second, please? Can you stop? Can you stop? What's wrong? Um [Chuckles] Aside from the fact that we're gonna scatter our son's ashes on mount kilimanjaro? Isn't that more reason to get some rest? Why don't you want to sleep? Because.
[ Voice breaking ] Uh, because when I sleep... I dream that oscar is still alive. It is so real, drew. It's so real that I wake up, and I get out of bed, and I go on into his bedroom, and I am fully expecting to see him there. And he's not. So I'd rather stay awake, you know? A-and as much hell as it is and as much agony as it is, I know he's gone. And it's so much better than having to lose him over and over again. I love it. You're making good use of oscar's guitar. I mean, I always wanted to learn how to play guitar. Oscar was in the middle of teaching me, but I'd get a little too impatient, and I'd -- I'd ask him to play for me instead, so we never really got
[Chuckling] Very far. Mm. I think you're a natural. Not really, but it's something.
[ Laughs ] But you know what? We're gonna get you lessons after you finish school. Thanks. Yeah, I'd like that. Plus, um, it's kind of what I'm supposed to do, right? Make plans, keep busy. You know what? You're just supposed to feel whatever you're feeling, and you -- you come to us whenever you need us, okay? It's gonna take a while to get on track. I keep thinking about, um... oscar's final words to me. How he told me that everything was gonna be alright, that I was gonna be alright. And I promised him I would be. It's a process. You're gonna get there. But you take it day by day, and you somehow remember to breathe. I don't want to breathe sometimes, mom. It's not that I want to be dead, but -- it's hard. But I'll do it... for oscar and... ...for everyone that's supporting me. Oh.
[ Exhales deeply ] You okay, carly? What? Yeah. Uh, it's the baby. What's going on?
[ Exhales sharply ] Is it? The baby's moving.
[ Chuckles ] It moved?
[ Laughing ] Yeah. Do you want to feel it? Do you want to feel your little brother or your little sister? Yeah. [ Laughs ]
[ Laughs ]
[ Laughs ]
Mom, that's amazing. It's also a little weird.
[ Both chuckle ] I mean, there's a person inside of your body. What does that feel like to you? Uh... it feels like I swallowed a bunch of butterflies.
[ Laughs ] Wow. Stuff just got real. There's a little life in there. Yeah. It scares me to death. Really? I don't know. It's just like -- there's a little person in there waiting to be born -- needs to be loved, protected. I don't want to fail. It's, like, the most beautiful thing in the world... and the most terrifying thing in the world. So true.
[ Laughs ] So true. Having a baby is, um, a crazy leap of faith. It's a reminder that... ...life goes on. I was cleaning up some paint I got on my hands in the art-therapy room, and I was using this, like, high-powered acetone, and it eats at the skin. Sounds nasty. It is. Cleaning up is nasty business. Tell me about it. Hey, cam. Um... how are you? How you doing? With? Oscar's death. You must miss your friend. Franco, if I want to talk to you about oscar or about anything, I'll let you know. Franco. Hey, light of my life. What is it? Ryan had a seizure. Finn sent him for some tests. Good. I hope that's the end of him. What did you do that needs forgiveness? I try not to waste time on my regrets. To dwell on what I'd do different. But I'm sorry for the secrets I kept. And for the time that I missed with you. It's time I talk to mr. Chamberlain. Oh, auntie. Leave it be. I most certainly will not. Don't you realize I'm your secret weapon? Yeah, I-I-I just don't want you in the same room with that twisted freak. If you tell me you're afraid he's gonna manipulate me, I just might be offended.
How am I supposed to not think about oscar? How am I supposed to get used to him not being here? Oh, baby. You never get used to the absence of someone you love. You just kind of grow around it. And then other people come into your life, and they take up space in your heart. And then...one day, you're gonna find yourself with friends or family, and you're gonna look up, and you're gonna realize that -- that you didn't think about your loss. For just a minute, you know, you're able to let go. And then that minute stretches into another minute, and then it turns into an hour. The hole in your heart is still there. It just aches a little less. You got to keep oscar's memories tucked away 'cause... eventually, they're gonna be there to comfort you. Yeah. I promise. And until then, your family will be here for you -- michael, your dad, us. We're always gonna take care of you. Always.
[ Sighs ] You know, I knew that... losing oscar was going to be the most painful experience of my life.
[ Sniffles ] The most unimaginable. But I didn't know how to prepare myself for it. You know, I'm not the kind of person who likes to get caught off guard. I-I am a doctor. I like to traffic in procedure, in facts. But this isn't about me being a doctor. I'm a mother
[Chuckles]... ...Who lost her son. And I honestly don't know how I'm gonna feel from one moment to the next. I don't know if I'm going to burst out into tears while I'm pumping gas, or if...I'm gonna come across one of oscar's coats in the hall closet and smile... 'cause it still smells of him. And I don't know how I'm gonna do this. I don't know how I'm gonna make this journey with you up that mountain... to scatter our son's ashes.
[ Cries ] Let me tell you how you're going to. Because you are a great mother.
[ Sobs ] But I thought this was gonna help. And I just don't know how to do it.
[ Sobbing ] I don't know how to say goodbye for the last time to my only child. I don't know how to say goodbye, either. But you want to know something? I don't think you ever get to say goodbye. But I'll make you a promise.
[ Sniffles ] As long as I'm alive... you don't have to do it alone. Okay? Neither do you.
[ Crying ] You know, when the alarms went off in ryan's room, I couldn't help but think, "this is what he deserves." Yeah, I don't know how you managed to be such a kind and healing nurse in that moment. I would not have been able to do that. It's my job. Yeah. I spent some time with jordan earlier. Yeah? I thanked her for the award she gave you. It still kind of blows me away that, as sick as she is, she managed to find the energy to acknowledge me. Because you did something heroic. Because you made a sacrifice that saved a lot of people's lives. It's not like I w-went willingly or easily. I wasn't a volunteer. I was pretty much bitching the whole time. I'm glad, though, that she managed to coerce me because sometimes the ends justify the means. Aunt stella, I love you for trying, but it ain't gonna do no good. How will we know until I've tried? What we do know is that we need to fight for jordan with everything we have. Okay, I've done everything I can and more. Except let me have a go at ryan. Dr. Finn. Has something happened? I have news about ryan chamberlain. I've come to grips with what you had to do and why. Yeah, it -- it isn't a pretty story, but somehow, through it all, you, me, curtis, and aunt stella... we're a family. My family. Thank you. That gives me some peace. No, mom, I can't lose you. I can'T. I need you to -- I need you to see me become a doctor and hold your -- your grandbabies... and to make you proud.
[ Voice breaking ] Thomas. You've already done that a million times over.
[ Sniffles ]
[ Smooches ]
[ Knock on door ] Stella.
[ Chuckles ] Hi. I'm so glad you're here. There's a lot I need to tell you. Save it. Dr. Finn has something he wants to tell us about ryan chamberlain.
[ Strumming guitar ]
[ Footsteps approaching ] Cameron: You're getting better. You think? How are your fingers? Really sore and tender. Yeah, you'll get a couple blisters, but once you build up your calluses, it'll be much easier to play. Oh, says mr. Stealth guitar player.
[ Chuckles ] When did you start playing seriously? Seventh grade. I got detention and had to sit in mr. Cho's class. The music teacher? Yeah, he, um... he said it would be in both of our interests to keep my mind occupied and my fingers busy, so he started to teach me guitar. And I loved it. I kept on coming back even after my detention was over. Why didn't you tell anyone? I don't know. I guess I thought it didn't really fit my image. Oh. Anyways, uh, mr. Cho gave me the guitar at the end of the year. He said new ones were coming in for the district. I've been playing ever since. Just noodling around in my room, mostly. I didn't get serious until... until oscar got sick. That's why you should stick with it. Music lets you say the things you don't have the words to say. Ryan had a setback earlier. It seemed like he was headed towards a life-threatening situation. But it turned out to be an allergic reaction to one of his medications. Is his kidney still good? Yes. Thank god. Is he conscious? Yes. I -- I gave him a mild sedative. Chamberlain came back from his ct scans as charming as ever. Thanks for the update. Ryan's cuffed, isn't he? Under guard? Yes, to both. He's -- he's weak. He can't hurt anyone. I'll be back soon. Stella, where are you going? Curtis: Auntie -- I'm going to get jordan that kidney. I was looking for you earlier. Where'd you go? I went to kiki's grave. Today would've been her birthday. Oh, my god.
[ Smooches ] I'm so sorry. Nah. If I had known, I would've gone with you. Oh, no. No, it was like a spur-of-the-moment thing. I just thought, now that ryan's in custody, that I might be able to find some kind of serenity, some way to accept what happened. And did you? No. Not at all. Talking to ava -- ava was there -- made me realize just how much rage I still have about all of this. Kiki had so much to live for. And she had so much to give. Ryan -- the only value that he has, the only reason he's still on this earth is that maybe he helps save jordan's life. I need to see chamberlain. You're wasting your time. It's mine to waste. Chamberlain is the only one who can save my mom, so you can either argue some more or you can wish me luck. Good luck.
[ Monitor beeping ] Come to see the wounded animal, revel in my suffering? Oh. No. You're here for the most predictable, mundane reason of all -- to beg for your mother's life. Save it. I've heard it all. T.J.'S in with him. I tried talking him out of it, but he was determined. T.J.'S a wonderful young man, but he's no match for that filth. You think you are? Watch me. Please, dr. Chamberlain. She's my mother. Kid, listen. Nothing less than my unconditional release and subsequent freedom could convince me to give up a kidney! Not your mommy, not the queen mum, not even the mother of dragons, alright? It's useless. My, my, my. Listen to you. All that posturing and attitude. Knock yourself out. Rant and rave all you want. But I promise you, mister, there will be no rest for you tonight 'cause I'm not leaving this room till jordan gets that kidney -- one way or another.
What's going on? I know the kids at school are weird, but that'll all soon stop. It's -- it's not that. Okay. I just had a deep conversation with my mom and sonny about oscar. And, uh...I got to feel the baby move, which was -- was pretty cool. That sounds all good. Yeah. I was all, "hey, life goes on." But it felt like I was outside of my body watching myself pretending to be a functioning person, pretending that, someday, I'll be okay. And it's not exactly that I was lying to myself, but... ...I just don't feel that way. I don't want to be okay. I don't want to stop thinking about oscar... ...because that would just be like losing him all over again. First lilacs of the summer. He always knew that when he saw them that summer was coming soon. Yeah.
[ Sighs ] Morgan, I wish you were here. You were such a great big brother. Josslyn puts up a good front. She doesn't want us to hover. She hates it almost as much as you did. She says the right things, asks the right questions, but, you know, deep down inside, she's in a lot of pain. And you could always get her to open up. Josslyn could always be herself with you, you know, no matter what was going on, and...
[ Sighs ] She had that with oscar, too.
[ Sighs ] You would've liked him, buddy. Keep an eye out. Keep an eye out for him up there, will you? He's gonna need a pal.
[ Sighs ] Oh, no, the dreaded social worker. Please, god, spare me the bleeding heart. I don't give one wit if you mock me, mister. I'm a believer.
[ Chuckles ] In what? A higher power. A higher power we sometimes appreciate and sometimes beg for mercy. One we sometimes question and sometimes curse. Curtis and T.J. -- They don't understand how the stars can align to spare your life and take jordan'S. But I understand it. "Only the good die young"? You've cheated death more than a few times, mister. And it was all leading to this --
this moment. All the hurtful, horrible acts you've perpetrated, all the victims you've killed or damaged, every move you've ever made has brought you to this one pivotal moment. Fire couldn't kill you. Neither could water. And you know why?
[ Chuckles ] I have a feeling you're going to tell me. Uh-huh. 'Cause you're obsessed with yourself. You can't bear the thought of ceasing to exist. You don't want to die. Few are as tenacious at holding on to life as you. But if you refuse this, if you ignore fate and don't do what the cosmos is telling you to do and help jordan, then those forces are gonna come together and finally painfully kill you. You'll take your final breathand go straight to hell! No more quests for victims. No more chasing after ava jerome. Give up your kidney and live or withhold it and die. Choice is yours. These last few years with you and T.J. Have been the happiest of my life. Everything changed when I moved to port charles. I-I felt the same way about you when I moved here. It's been a bumpy road getting here. Yeah. But I finally think I found my joy and peace... as your wife, as T.J.'S mom. I told you that I should get my affairs in order, but I don't need to. Everything is where I want it to be.
[ Sighs ] Hang on, okay? Don't give up. I don't have much choice. My body can't keep going. I don't know what's next, but I love you. I will die loving you. Baby, I love you. I always will. I want you to pick up the pieces, okay? Go on living. Find someone else. No, no. Don't even talk like that. I'm not trying to hear that. Please. Please, curtis. You can't ask me to do the impossible. T.J.: Mom. T.J. What is it? Ryan said yes. Ryan said yes. He's giving you his kidney. No. A-aunt stella got through to him. Do you think that he means it? I don't know. I-I'ma go find out. This might be a cruel joke. This could really be happening.
[ Chuckles ] Mom, you're gonna be okay. You are consenting to the surgery? Yes! And don't get any ideas. I'm not doing it because of that nonsense about fate or higher powers. I'm doing it to get her to shut up. Whatever works. Having a kidney removed without anesthesia would be less torturous than listening to you. So, you'd like to forgo the anesthesia? It's called hyperbole, doctor. Just promise me that once I sign the forms, I never have to see her again.
[ Scoffs ] Nothing would make me happier. Auntie...is it true? You worked your magic? It would seem so. How? By being the most annoying person that ever crossed my path.
[ Sighs ]
[ Laughing ] Yes! Yes! That's my auntie.
you were right. He was no match for you. Yeah, well, save those words till he signs the consent. Here are all the papers you need to sign. It won't take long.
[ Sighs ] Let's get this ball rolling.
[ Monitor beeping ] Drew: Let's get some sleep. I'm right next door if you need me, okay? You really think that oscar's on that mountain? A spirit like oscar's? I can't believe that it would just be gone. So he's out there. He's somewhere. He's wherever he wants to be. I just really want to see him one more time. I know. I just want to know he's okay. That my good, sweet boy -- that he's out there somewhere. Well, that's why we're here, right? All you got to do is believe. When I was singing at the nurses' ball and my voice was getting all thin, I thought I would have to stop. But I looked into the crowd, and oscar was there, and he helped me through. You were amazing. I could tell you were thinking about him. My mom and sonny tell me that, in time, I'll ache less and I'll grow around oscar's absence. What if I don't want to? No one's asking you to forget oscar. I don't want to feel better or move on or get over oscar. I want to remember him exactly the way he was and the way he is. Does that make any sense?
[ Chuckles ] Yeah. Look! [ Chuckles ] Fireflies. And in the middle of everything... we got some incredible news. Now, look, nobody could take your place, buddy. But, um, we have a new baby coming to the family.
[ Sniffles ] That's right. And we are gonna tell
[Sighs] This little baby all about you. So maybe those fireflies that you love so much will come around, and, uh...
[Voice breaking] Light this place up. Look. There they are.
[ Chuckles ] Cameron: Did you get it? Yeah, I think I did. You know, um, oscar said that if you catch the last firefly of the season and you make a wish, that it'll come true. So, maybe it works for the first one, too. Maybe.
[ Sighs ] Okay. Ready? You know, when I first did this with oscar... ...I wished that we'd fall in love. And it came true. How lucky am I?
[ Monitor beeping ] You know, I realize that I'm the most loathed man in port charles, but I'm about to sign papers that will allow you to put me under and remove a vital organ. I'll be vulnerable. And I wouldn't put it past some people in this hospital to mess with my anesthesia. I assure you, you'll be treated with the same care and respect with which we treat every patient in this hospital.
[ Scoffs ] And I will speak up for you at your sentencing. You have my word.
