(This still needs extensive editing)are you with me? Huh? I -- we were talking about retaining your services for lulu's divorce, should that happen. Oh, yeah. Yeah, don't worry. Pro bono. But you got to do me a favor. What kind of favor? You got to get rid of that fortune teller, that scam artist over there. You asked me to meet you. Now you're glued to your cellphone. Yeah. I-I'm so -- I'm so sorry. I'm just trying to shut off my social media alerts here. That popular?
[ Chuckles ] You know, I thought that the frenzy over my crimson interview would have died by now, but it looks like my 15 minutes might last a little bit longer. Speaking of minutes, can we, uh, cut to the chase, please? Okay. Okay. I'm so sorry. Well, I, um -- I tried to do right by kiki and I went to see ryan. And I asked that he exhibit some remorse for killing her and that he let me go -- once and for all. Well, I don't need psychic powers to know how
that went over. Maxie: I printed out those pictures and -- alright, sustenance. Can't burn the midnight oil without it. Hey, maxie, can you take the food to set? As you wish. Thank you. Hey, listen, we need to talk about what happened last night. Oh, okay. Well, uh, I thought it was excellent, and I really enjoyed -- no, no, no. Not th-- I mean, it was amazing. Anyway, before that. What happened with hayden and jax.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Jasper jacks. Jax, it's hamilton finn. Listen, I'm sorry to call you like this. I got your number from bobbie spencer. What can I do for you, finn? Just, uh, wanted to check on hayden. I saw her early this morning, and I... I just wanted to make sure she was okay. Well, I'm looking at her right now. She seems fine. That's goo-- yeah, that's good. Thank -- thank you. Okay. Well, have a good night. You, too. Who was that? Uh, it was finn. No, please. S-stop it. Jason: Hey.
[ Screams ] Hey, hey, hey. No. It's okay.
[ Breathing heavily ] It's okay. I'm okay. I'm okay. Sam.
[ Sighs ] I-I'm not okay. Can you believe this place? Seriously. If only cameron cleaned his room this well.
[ Chuckles ] Speaking of, that kid was supposed to meet us here after community service, and he's late -- again. Cameron: Let me go! Let me go! Let me go! Let me go! Please, please, please, please, please! I can't be here! I can't -- you have to let me go! What's going on here?! Hey, doc. Meet your new subject.
I see two women having drinks. Well, I see a woman with a hook in her mouth being reeled in.
[ Chuckles ] Well, what would you like me to do about that?
[ Sighs ] My tax dollars at work? Scotty, I just don't think it's my place to tell a grown woman how to grieve. You're the mayor. A pillar, a beacon. A ray of sunshine? That, too. Look, ava lost her daughter in the worst possible way. How she wants to get through the aftermath, that's -- that's really her business. Yeah. I know a little bit about grief, laura. I know you do. Look, I got no problem with her getting on with her life. It's just who she's doing it with that bugs me. I thought...
[ Stammers ] What? I-I-I -- y-you came to elizabeth and franco's party with bobbie, right? We're in talks right now. You know, I'm -- I'm not -- I'm not trying to cozy up with ava, you know? She's a friend. You're a friend. If I saw vultures over your head, anybody's, I would shoo them away. So, I'm just asking, you know, for old time's sakes... can you do me a favor? You going to see ryan... I could have told you that he wouldn't give you any satisfaction or closure. That's not what lovelorn, psychotic killers do.
[ Exhales sharply ] But kiki -- I'm sure she appreciated the attempt. You need to make a different kind of amends if you want to reach your daughter. A kind that will test you like you've never been tested before. Well, what is it? Like I've told you, I will do anything. Be careful what... give a hoot, don't pollute. Hoot? What -- what are you talking about? We'll have to pick this up later. Wait, y-you're leaving? Oh, and it's $250 for the session. No, but -- but, chelsea -- and try not to be too mad at him. He means well. How did he even get your number? He said bobbie gave it to him. And that's it? Finn just wanted to know how I was feeling? Well, can you blame him? I mean, you were kind of out of it last night. I have never been so...obliterated. Speaking of which, where is the waitress? I need some hair of the dog right now. I don't get it. What? Well, unless you were drinking before I picked you up -- no. You had one drink. And that was the result?
[ Laughs ] I don't know. I can't explain it. I wonder if someone else can. You really think that hayden and jax were looking for something at wyndemere? Well, don't you? Hayden was seconds away from confessing when jasper jumped in with that diamond nonsense. Yeah, but what were they looking for? I don't know. And I'm not overly concerned, either. Right, but you're keeping an eye out? Always. Hey, you're back! So, how was your weekend away with michael? It was amazing. I'm so sad it's over. Oh, man, I need one of those. So, a vacation together. You and michael must be getting pretty serious. I think I caught the bug. I thought I was gonna die in that freezer, jason. I did everything I could. I kicked, I struggled, I tried to scream, and... I couldn't breathe. There was no air. And... I thought that was it.
[ Sniffles ] That I was never gonna see you or danny or scout or anybody that I loved ever again and...
[ Exhales deeply ] And I-I know -- I know I'm here, and I know everything's okay. It's just...
[ Sighs ] You're scared. Yeah, it... it freaked me out. Mm-hmm. Whatever you need... whatever you're feeling, I'm right here. Okay? Because I know you. And I know how strong and resilient you are. And I know you can get through this. And I know shiloh cannot break you. He can'T. Mnh-mnh. You're gonna be okay.
[ Sniffles ] It's gonna be okay.
[ Sighs deeply ] Oh, cameron. Cellphone is a privilege, not a right. And if you don't start answering my calls, that right is gonna be taken away from you faster than you can say "minecraft." Oh, he doesn't play that anymore. Eh -- so, we are -- stop! We are here at, uh, rice plaza right now.
[ Chuckles ] Will you please hurry up? I don't want to be kept waiting too long. 'Kay, bye. I'm just trying to help you out here. He doesn't play it anymore. You would think the prospect of getting a car would instill a little bit of responsibility, you know? Yeah. Well, maybe he just lost track of time 'cause he's flirting with some girls. Picking up trash? Orange vests are hot.
[ Sighs ] I really don't want to be late for work. Go. Really? Yeah, I'll wait here and make sure he gets home safe. Okay. Here. Take -- no, no, no. We're gonna walk. Is this about what that psychic said? Yeah, maybe. She's psychic, and she said, "don't take that drive," because she knew it would be a beautiful night out. And maybe on a three-mile walk, cameron and I can bond. Yeah, if he doesn't kill you first. He won'T. Okay. Thank you. I love you. I love you. Please, let me go. This is insane. This is crazy! Somebody help me, please! Please, somebody! Hey, hey, hey! Stop, stop, stop! Hey, hey. Stop, stop. Hey, look at me. Look at me, alright? I already told you, okay -- nobody can hear you. Nobody knows you're here. Hell, nobody even knows you're gone. Okay? Please. Please. Come on, please! Hey, hey, hey. Please. Hey. Look at me. Hey. I'm in charge here. Alright? So I promise you, if you're a good boy, you're not gonna get hurt. But if you're a pain in the ass, all bets are off, you got it?
Are you feeling okay? Yeah, I'm just tired. As fun as it was, I think our whirlwind vacation has caught up with me. Aw. Well, I guess there are worse reasons to be under the weather. Sure. Okay. So [Chuckles] I'm just gonna say this.
[ Sighs ] Michael is the best. Like, the best best. And he's been through the wringer. I know. I guess what I'm trying to say is you're really lucky, sasha. Don't screw it up. I wish I had a better read on jax. Nina, the man obviously cannot be trusted. Well, not fully, anyway. And I am not ruling out connection with cassandra. Oh, please. Does jax seem like the type to team up with a drug dealer? Uh, nina, his brother is on the top of the wsb and interpol "most wanted" list. So? Equating jax with his brother is like, uh, saying peter is a murderer because his father was faison. Look, I do agree jax is up to something. But you're gonna have a hard time convincing me that it's evil or sinister. Hmm. But I have convinced you that he's not as transparent as he could be? Yes. You have convinced me of that. Well, then, I wonder...what else I could convince you of? Well, you'll never know until you try. What was going through your mind when you put it all out there for finn? I didn't put it all out there. You kind of did. I don't know. All of a sudden, I just felt the need to tell the truth building and building. I-I couldn't hold back. Which is exactly what you have been doing -- holding back. And one drink -- it just all goes out the window?
[ Scoffs ] Weak moment? Harder to resist when the -- we're in the same room? I-I don't know. It was like an out-of-body experience. I started talking, and then for whatever reason, nothing was gonna keep me from telling the truth. You were going to, uh, tell them everything, weren't you? The reason why we were at wyndemere. Oh, 100%. If you hadn't jumped in, nina and valentin would've heard the whole plan. Which is exactly what they wanted. What do you mean? Oh, my god. You think they laced my drink? You know, you play that "old friend" card a lot. Well, now, that's the card I was dealt. I just don't think ava wants to hear what I think of her psychic. Well, then forget about ava. Go right to the psychic. Meaning what? Well, there's a -- there's a law in this state about crystal balls. So, you can just go to her and send her right back to the carny folk. That's where she belongs.
[ Sighs ] Okay, scotty, you realize this could backfire, right? It could end up hurting ava instead of helping her. Maybe she's getting some closure or comfort out of what the psychic has to offer. Well -- oh!
[ Cellphone ringing ] Hold on. I got a call coming in. W-wait a minute. I didn't agree to anything yet. Well, look at it this way -- she is one of your constituents, right? H-hello? Yeah. Uh-huh. Well... what? This was not the subject we agreed upon! Yeah, yeah. I know, I know. Jason morgan got the jump on me, alright? I had to clear out. But lucky for us, the universe dropped this kid and a spare set of car keys right in my lap. Did I not make myself clear? The procedure was designed for twins. So, improvise. What about drew cain? Drew's unavailable. I can't get ahold of him. Why? I couldn't get ahold of him. That's it, okay? We agreed that jason morgan would be in that chair. Instead, you've delivered me a child! Okay. Look, this is what we got. This is what we're working with, okay? I can't go back. The cops will be all over me. You understand? Then I'll take my leave. Hey.
[ Scoffs ] No one ever abandons me.
[ Electricity buzzing ] Hey, chelsea. Hi. It's franco. We met at the hospital. You told me to not take that drive, and believe me, I haven'T. I've been avoiding all cars. Golf carts, too. Not a big problem for me, though, 'cause I don't play a lot of golf. But it's getting to be difficult. So, if you could elaborate... okay, what's going on now? Forget what I said. You have to take that drive. Oh, come on.
Yes. Please, sit down. Um... is -- is there something that I can do for you, or... scotty's worried about you. Oh. Just not worried enough to scoot himself over here, huh? Yeah, I don't know. I-I guess he thinks the situation has progressed beyond that point. What situation? Do you think nina and valentin tried to drug me with some kind of truth serum? I doubt that nina had anything to do with it, but poisons are a cassadine trademark. That's outrageous. Well, we knew there was an ulterior motive, them inviting us to wyndemere, right? Yeah, but I didn't think that. Oh, my god. I could've told finn that... I mean, I-I-I could've done something really stupid, like demand he break up with anna and get back together with me or something. Well, was that not inferred? Sorry. Just --
[ Clears throat ] Is it so bad that finn knows how you feel? Well, I was gonna get there, eventually. But now...
[ Sighs ] I don't know what I'm gonna do. Do you want my advice? No, but you're gonna give it to me anyway. I think you should let finn go.
[ Sighs ] So, what'd I miss? Oh, you know, the usual death-defying acts from jason and sam. Are they okay? You ever heard of this shiloh person? Yeah, from dawn of day, the cult? That's the one. Oh, my god. Possible respiratory infection caused by nearly suffocating? Trapped in a freezer? She's gonna be okay. They sure know how to keep things interesting, though.
[ Sighs ] I don't know about you, but I am really grateful for my boring, blissful, uninteresting life. I went to shiloh's hotel room, like I told you I was gonna do, to look for the flash drive, and...I found it, and I just wanted to get the hell out of there. And, jason, I opened up the door, and there he was. And I-I can't remember what he did to me. But the next thing I knew, I was in a freezer and I-I couldn't get out. I don't know how this... something happened, but it was a setup. You were bait. Shiloh was after me. You? Why? Drew has information that shiloh needs from their time in afghanistan. And it's on the flash drive. Right. So shiloh wanted to imprint drew's memories onto me because we're twins. But it wouldn't have worked. Isn't that what faison said? Because of the brain damage, there could be no memory mapping with you? I mean, to be honest, I don't -- I don't think shiloh cares. He's lost it. And that's why he's not gonna win. What you mean to say is
don't take that drive, right? No. You have to. No. But you said -- I know what I said. I was wrong. You're a psychic. How can you be wrong? It kind of defeats the whole purpose of being a psychic. It'll be an easy decision. The easiest you'll ever make. But what happens after... that will be the hardest thing you ever do. Yeah, now you're not making any sense at all. I'm sorry I didn't get it right the first time. Yeah. And I'm even sorrier for what's to come. Not ominous at all.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Don't go anywhere. Stay right here. It's not a good time. Cameron's in big trouble.
[ Sniffles, breathes shakily ]
[ Electricity buzzing ] Don't quit. Don't quit.
[ Grunting, breathing heavily ] There's no need for violence. No one said anything about violence, okay? But the fact is, in the eyes of the law, you and i are co-conspirators. I go down, you go down. The only way we are getting out of this is downloading the information from that flash drive, okay? Now, from that, you and I, we can fund our escape, we can disappear forever. I beg of you to see reason. The procedure has only been performed on twins. Well, y-you were looking to branch out, right? The idea was eventually to apply the procedure to unrelated subjects. Okay. But only after further research. Great. I'm just speeding up the timetable, doc. The procedure was never meant for someone so young.
[ Sighs ] There's no telling what consequence the mapping might have on his still-developing mind. The boy could be altered in a way we don't intend. Rendered insensate -- even killed.
What's up with cam? Well, that kid just got me a parking ticket. I'm not sure I follow. Okay, so this meter maid I used to date, uh, wrote a ticket. He was parked illegally on, um... 721 dewitt street. Wait, cam parked illegally, and you're dating a meter maid? Since when? Well, you know, she let me park my convertible wherever I wanted, but, you know, she saw my extra parking garage permit in the window. Cam's not supposed to be driving. He lost his license. Well, I guess he didn't get that memo.
Yeah. And dewitt? What's he doing in that neighborhood? Uh, well, whatever he was doing, he wasn't parked in the right place. And if the judge finds out about this... listen, I'll buy the meter maid a big t-bone and take care of it, so, uh... don't worry about anything. I -- just find cameron and get that car up on blocks. Yeah. Proceeding with that boy is dangerous, at best. At worst, lethal.
[ Sighs ] Okay, well, then you know what? Let's shoot for the best. Because right now, our alternative is life in prison. So, what's one more crime? Get on with it.
[ Laughs ] Look at that. Junior almost worked himself loose. I got to tighten those guys up. You freak! You let go of me! It might be prudent to restrain his feet, as well.
[ Exhales deeply ] That's a good idea. Just layer by layer, things are building up on shiloh. Losing willow, losing the cult, losing his baby, and -- and as his options are getting smaller, he's starting to fixate on -- on whatever happened in afghanistan, the information that drew has as his way out. It's like he's got tunnel vision. That doesn't make any sense. He doesn't -- he doesn't care. Sam, this guy is losing it. Now, that could be a good thing, because the more desperate he gets, the sloppier his mistakes will be. No, jason. The more he loses it, the more dangerous he will be. I'm not saying that we shouldn't be on guard, okay? Because...we know what he's capable of. We -- we know that. I'm just saying that he's not playing to his strengths anymore. Ordering people around to do what he wants -- that's done. This guy has no one to hide behind anymore.
[ Sighs ] And that makes him more vulnerable. Scotty is concerned about the company you're keeping. Who? Chelsea? Yeah, she's the psychic, right? Yeah, so? So... he's convinced that you're being taken advantage of. I can take care of myself. I know that, ava. I do. I-- but you are still grieving, you know? And nobody wants to see you get preyed upon again. Well, I'm -- I'm pretty confident that chelsea's not a serial killer. And I'll be honest with you -- she's helping me. Well, I hope that's true. But you don't believe it is. I don't know. I-I-I really don'T. I just know that you deserve peace. Well, there is no peace for me. And that's okay. I just want peace for kiki. And I know that if you thought nikolas was as restless as I think that kiki is, I know that you would do everything in your power to unburden him. From one business partner to another, you know, it's been a while since you and finn have been together, and he's obviously moved on, so... you probably should, too. Wait. Is that why you agreed to work with me? Because you saw it as a -- as a chance to fight for finn? I'd be lying if I said the thought didn't cross my mind. But... things have changed. And in the meantime, this thing with valentin just got seriously personal. That eurotrash and his park avenue princess poisoned me. Oh. I'm afraid that was meant for me, not you. And they have no reason to suspect you, do they? But nina has brought up cassandra pierce's name once too often, and she is the key. Do you know anything about cassandra? Not much. The question is, why are valentin and nina so worried what I might know about cassandra? You're right. I am lucky. Michael -- sometimes he seems too good to be true. Probably because he is. I want to take it slow and make sure that michael and I are on the same page about where we are and where we're going. And I want us to get there, wherever that is, whenever we get there. So...did I pass? Oh, with flying colors.
[ Chuckles ] Mm. I am so glad I am on your team. It's funny you should say that. Yeah, how's that funny? Well, ava's issue is done and on the stands... hallelujah. ...And we have a relatively good handle on the jax situation. Proceed with caution. So I think we need to turn our attention back on us. We set the wedding date in september, we made the preliminary arrangements, but we got to ramp it up, valentin, 'cause september is just around the corner. And I don't want to waste one day or one minute before marrying you.
Delivery... whoops. Don't mind us. Hi. Sasha! You're back! Honey, how was your island getaway? Mm, it was unreal. We had the best time. Yay! I thought I'd pop into the office and catch up on some work, but I'm beat, so I'm gonna head home. No, no, no, no. Wait, wait, wait. Uh, valentin and i want to... give you our big news. Drumroll, please. We're getting married. We already knew that. Oh, but you probably assumed that we were gonna postpone the wedding date again. A reasonable assumption, I admit. But no. Valentin and i are fully committed to our september wedding date. It's just gonna take a lot of work. September? That's next month. Do you know how many details there are for me to pull together? Well, I'm the one getting married, so I thought maybe I would help. No, that's okay. I'll do it. Congratulations. Thank you. I'm so happy I get to be here. And all the days after that. It was always a long shot, anyway -- uncovering valentin's, uh, connection with cassandra. And if we press the issue, it may cause him to up the ante. Higher than drugging me? Don't be fooled by his respectable fašade. There is nothing refined about valentin cassadine. And now that he's onto us, well, we're in a dangerous position. It's gonna make it that much harder to get back to wyndemere, too, and snoop around his office. Or that creepy trophy room. Unless... what? We exploit one of his two weaknesses -- charlotte... out of the question. ...Or nina. Doubtful she knows anything. All she needs to know is that you're a good guy she wants to bring back in her home again. Befriend her. Let her take the message to valentin that you're harmless after all. He lets down his guard, and then we get him. After nikolas died, I, um... I didn't know how to go on. I wasn't even sure if I would. So, how did you do it? H-h-how did you even get out of bed in the morning? Spencer. I knew he needed me. I feel that way about avery. And, you know... when she asks me if kiki is happy where she is now, I lie when I say yes, because I don't know. You've got to look inside yourself to find some peace. What if I don't find it? Then you keep looking. And not with a psychic, 'cause they can prolong your pain and they're making money off your pain. Yeah. Well, I am in pain. But I'm also still me.
[ Laughs ] You know? And I would laugh chelsea off if she hadn't given me reason to believe. Laura, she knows things that no one could possibly know. You don't believe it? Try it yourself. So, the pcpd has an apb out on shiloh and his accomplice. Sam, I just heard what happened. Are you okay? Yeah. Thank you. How are you feeling? Wait. Uh, I'm -- I'm sorry. You -- you just said "accomplice"? Jason: Yeah. Do you think it's anyone to do with dod? No, it's the doctor who developed the memory transfer -- dr. Cabot. Arthur cabot? Yeah. Andre's work was based on his technique. Anna and her sister were his initial subjects. Yeah, d-did you know he was in town? Yeah, I just found out. I-I literally ran into him earlier. I warned drew, but i had no idea about the shiloh connection. Oh, if shiloh's -- if shiloh's working with him, maybe -- maybe dr. Cabot stands a better chance of getting something off that flash drive than we thought. Yeah, but he would need you or drew to make that work. Not necessarily. Hey, cam. It's franco. Listen, I know you're out on a little joyride and it's concerning me because your license has been revoked. So please stay put, and I'm gonna come get you. And then you're gonna owe me big-time, kid. Let me go and I won't say a word to anyone. I won't tell a soul. Please, you got to let me go. Ah. Sorry, kid. No can do. Do you know who jason morgan is? He's my half-brother's dad, and if you do this, he will kill you. You're connected to jason, huh? That's even better. Please, please don't do this. Please don't do this. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Please don't do this! Please don't do this! Look at me. Look at me. Relax. Relax, okay? Drew cain survived this. You will, too. What? Yeah. You're gonna... you're gonna make me forget everything? No, no! You can't make me forget everything! It won't hurt. No, you can't! Please! Please! No! Hey, hey. Look, look, look. No! Please! No! Look at me. Relax. Because when you wake up, you won't even remember this. You're not even gonna remember being scared. Don't worry about it. That's a good boy.
[ Breathing shakily ] Oh! Oh! Oh!
You know, your pal already took a crack at me. Well, now, ava, if laura was willing to sit down with you and try and talk some sense into you, maybe it was for good reason. I think the reason is her friendship with you and not necessarily any compassion for me. Well, then fasten your seat belt, 'cause you're in for a bumpy ride, ava. Well...my eyes are wide open. Okay, fine. If you're not gonna listen to me, do me a favor and keep that palm reader away from my son. He doesn't need any of that, okay? Hey. Uh-huh. Thank you. For what? You know what. Chelsea lam? It's me. I've heard an awful lot about you. I understand that you have a special way of helping people. I think I might be in need of that kind of help, too. Oh, I have every -- every intention of, uh, gaining nina's trust. But not only is it good business sense, I, uh, genuinely like her. Hmm. Hmm. She's, um -- she's creative, intuitive, smart. Don't tell me. Tell her. I'm way ahead of you. Maxie: They were just messengered over. How beautiful. Right? How did you know that we were gonna have something to celebrate? Uh, I didn'T. Those aren't from me. Huh. "Dear nina, thanks for making my early days at aurora memorable ones. Here's to many more. Warmly, jax." Well, how about that? Yeah, how about that? Sasha! Oh, my god!
[ Gasps ] Cameron!
[ Door opens ] I thought dr. Cabot and andre's work was supposed to be used on twins? Yes. W-what shiloh is looking to do, he'd have a better chance of success with you. But theoretically, the procedure could be performed on anyone. Wait a minute. T-that's dangerous, though, right? Mm-hmm. I mean, the real concern is rather than ending up with someone else's memories, that the subject would end up in a vegetative state. Dr. Cabot: I wanted to complete my life's work, not muck about with felons! Shiloh: Would you just stop whining and get it done? You really are an odious son of a bitch, aren't you? The dvx was much more to my liking. Better facilities, too! What's going on here?
