(This still needs extensive editing)

Got himself a girl and i wanna make her min eyes

she's loving him with that body

[ Giggles ] Hey, portia. Yeah, I wish I was looking for my nephew. No, I'm here on a case, following up with a gh staffer. Well, if you don't mind me saying so, you're looking a little grim.

[ Laughs ]

[ Sighs ] What kind of case is it? Infidelity. Seems another Port Charles marriage is imploding.

Today, the role of

jordan ashford

is being played

by tiffany daniels.

[ Pen clicking ] Dante:

Complete the mission,

complete the mission,

complete the mission. Dante, you getting lunch at charlie's, too? Dante? Hey. Hey, jordan. You okay? Uh, yeah, I just, uh -- just doing a little thinking is all. Got a lot going on. I don't mean to be quick with you, but I gotta bounce. Well, actually, if you have a minute, we need to talk about your future. As chief of staff, I have a responsibility to my patients, and that includes protecting their privacy. Which I clearly didn'T. People will know what you did, peter, and they'll wonder why, and they will likely find holes in your reasoning. You are my sister, and I love you. But make no mistake -- if you push this, it may threaten my family. And you do not want to come between between me and maxie and my child. Jason: Or what? Jason! Dr. Westbourne. I heard franco was here. Actually, you just missed him. Good. You want to tell me why you're threatening dr. Westbourne? Franco: Wait. Just -- sam: I don't want to talk to you about this. If you would just let me say one thing to you, sam -- I-I just told you, I don't want to talk to you about this! Elizabeth: Will you just hear him out? Franco: I'm not gonna hurt you, sam. Not gonna hurt you or anybody else. I have made specific arrangements to make sure that never happens. What kind of arrangements have you made? Ok, we need to end this conversation, like, right now. This is a public place. Where franco and I work. I don't care! I'm going to have this conversation right now, elizabeth. Franco, what kind of "contingency plan" did you make in case you go back to being that sadistic serial killer who tormented me for years? Have some decaf. I know you're already wound up tight as a drum. Thank you, though I really should be making this for you. You were the one who was out all night searching for Mike. Might be for the best that I didn't find him.

[ Scoffs ] Don't say that. Now, phyllis, you have the kindest heart in the world. But we don't know anything about Mike or where he came from. And if your hunch is right and he has some mental issues going on, who knows what kind of trouble Mike could've gotten into.

[ Door closes ] Jackie: When you say you were "desperate for relief," you mean you started

using cocaine. What the hell? Sasha: Wow... you just dived right in to the deep end, didn't you? Well, it is -- it is a live interview, and we have a limited amount of time, sasha. Um, some context might benefit our viewers. Sasha gilmore first came to

Port Charles nearly three years ago,

pretending to be the long-lost daughter

of crimson editor

nina reeves. That's why you're here today...

[ Scoffs ]

...Right, sasha?

To be a lesson

to our audience

on how something

started so simply wound up taking control

over your life?

What happened to me

was horrible. What are you talking about?

But if even

one person learns... jax! Look what sasha is wearing. Look! It's a half-heart necklace.

...From my mistakes,

then it's worth it. Sasha knows what this means to me. She knows that my daughter is supposed to have the other half of mine.

I couldn't admit to... why would sasha do this? Is it mortifying to hold myself accountable? Yes, of course it is. But I made these mistakes, and now I have to make up for them.

[ Whispering ] What?

[ Whispering ] You need to stop the interview. What? What? Right now.

my client says that she believes her husband stepped out on her at some club. So you're doing surveillance at a nightclub.

[ Laughs ] Yeah. Doesn't sound so bad.

[ Laughing ] Oh, no, no, no. Trust me when I say that this, uh -- this nightclub's glory days are well behind it. Oh. I mean, like, a shadow of what it used to be. I'm really not looking forward to staking out this place a couple nights a week, trying to catch some -- some fool lying to someone he claims he cares about.

[ Sighs ] Do you want to talk about it? Portia, you've been great, but... I couldn't put you in that position again.

[ Scoffs ] All I did was listen to you vent about being disenchanted about your job. I -- [ Chuckles ] I mean, it happens to everybody.

[ Chuckles ] Nice try. I don't believe you'll ever be "disenchanted" about medicine.

[ Chuckles ] Well, like any profession, there's good and bad days. You know what, my shift here is almost over. Why don't I come with you to the nightclub? I heard you're running security for the invader. Yeah, it, uh, pays the bills. I'm sure it does. But I also know that you are a seasoned professional who can handle complex cases. Have you given any more thought to returning to the pcpd? I'm flattered, jordan, but I don't think I'm ready to handle that kind of stress yet. Well, maybe there's something we can -- did you not hear me when I said I got somewhere to be? Right. Sorry, it'S... it's just we all miss you. Just keep us in mind -- when you're ready. Yeah. Yeah, I'm sorry. Jordan, that's a generous offer. I'll keep it in mind. Britt and I were just having a sibling disagreement. It has nothing to do with you, jason. But it has to do with me. Peter used my gh login to access franco's medical records. He accessed privileged information about franco's tumor and then splashed it on the front page...

[ Sighs ] ...Causing panic inside the hospital and out. People are going to ask questions how peter got that access, and I'm the lucky one that has to give them an answer. I'm sorry. I just -- I lost my temper. That's all. And you have to remember, the last time franco had a tumor, a lot of people got hurt, including people maxie's very close to... like the woman we've chosen to name our daughter after. As soon as I heard franco's tumor may have reoccurred, I had to get the word out. Oh, come on. I can't be the only one who thinks franco is a potential threat. In fact, I'm quite sure you feel the same way. I mean it. Both of you. We are not doing this here. No! I want an explanation from him. I'm not the same person. Sam, I know that I hurt you. I know that. I know I hurt a lot of people. Which is why when I found out that the tumor was coming back, I made arrangements. What kind of "arrangements"? W-what do you -- w-what do you mean? What -- what kind of "arrangements" could possibly protect me and my children? At the first sign that I'm reverting to "bad franco"... if I think even for a second that that evil franco is going to run the show again... I'll be put down. What? Phyllis: Mike? Are you okay? Officer finchley, what happened? Uh, why do you have Mike? Mike was waiting outside the hardware store before it opened. I wanted a job, and that's what I told the owner of the place. When he was told they weren't hiring, Mike refused to leave. I'm handy. I'm good with tools, I'm good with people. It's not my fault that the owner of the place couldn't see that. I could have increased his business tenfold. So, what happened? When Mike wouldn't leave, you showed up and took him to the station? How did the drug use begin? It s tarted so...simply.So, um, gradual. I wasn't dealing very well with my emotions, and one night, I had, uh, way too much to drink. Drinking to cover the pain. That's not unusual. No, but I had a big photo shoot for deception the next day, and I wound up oversleeping.

I looked like hell.

And someone on set saw me

struggling and offered me... I-I just -- I can't wrap my head around it.

So I took it. Why would sasha wear that necklace?

And it did boost my energy. Well, do you remember what the jeweler told us?

The pictures turned out great,

and everybody was happy. He said that your necklace was a custom,

so... but the half-heart design is not. I mean, there's no -- no reason to think the necklace that sasha is wearing is the -- the one that belonged to your daughter.

[ Sasha continues indistinctly ] No, that's not the point, jax. The point is, why would she wear the half-heart design? She knows what that would do to me. It -- it can't be a coincidence. Well, there's nothing we can do about it now. She's in the middle of an interview.

[ Sighs ] You know what? Let me -- let me call carly and -- and see if she knows anything. Ah, went straight to voicemail. Carly, it's jax. Uh, it's important. Can you please call me back right away?

[ Button clicks ] In the short term... have you lost your mind? ...It seemed likean okay solution. We cannot stop. She's live. Jackie: The white-powder pick-me-up... live on "gma3." Jackie is interviewing sasha live. ...Didn't turn out to bea one-time thing, did it? We're not going to stop it! We can't shut it down! Whoa, whoa, whoa. We can't shut down the interview. That would be a pr disaster for deception. You don't understand. Sasha is having a wardrobe malfunction. She looks fine to me. Sasha: And, um...

and that is how

the habit started growing. Jackie: Can you describe how taking the drugs made you feel? When I was lost and lonely, one hit of the drug, and all my problems disappeared, or at least until the high wore off. And the more you do, the less it affects you, so you have to do even more to get that feeling again. And suddenly, you're in a really vicious cycle.

[ Softly ] That's nina's necklace. And even when some really kind people in my life called me out on using, I denied that I had a problem.

The officer and I, we met before -- the night that that hiker found me in the woods. That night, he claimed not to know who he was. I asked if he remembered... I told -- I told him my name's Mike. That's all I remember. I don't remember anything else, and I have two people to vouch for me. That's when I realized -- Mike is another one of your strays, right, phyllis? Yes. Mike has been staying with us. He doesn't mean any harm. There's no reason for you to take Mike to the station and charge him. I can explain things to mr. Harper. And lenny and I will take full responsibility for Mike's actions if you release him into our care. We will? You can trust us -- you know that. I know your word is your vow, phyllis. You just be careful who you trust.

[ Footsteps receding ] Tell me about your heart attack. I, um, went to the restroom to sample a new batch. I don't know if it was too strong or I did too much, but it felt like my heart was exploding. It was crazy. But do you know what's even crazier? What's that? I actually thought that I might be dying. But the other part of my brain was scrambling. Trying to come up with some explanation... I see it, too. ...Of what was happening. The necklace she's wearing. Anything other than the drugs. You would do surveillance with me at some run-down club? Well, it may be less conspicuous if you're half a couple. Blend in better, and clearly, you could use the company. You know what? I don'T... I don't think it's a good idea. Yeah. Oh, please, curtis. Are we not friends? I know you and jordan are gonna work things out.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, I sure hope so. We don't seem to be making any progress. She keeps pushing for me to come home, and I don't want to give her false hope that we -- we could just paint this over and move on. Bu t would you begiving her false hope? I mean, you do want to work things out with her... don't you? I don't care how worried you are about maxie -- no one threatens me! I have half a mind to call the pcpd and make a statement about how you manipulated me into giving you access to franco's medical records. Obviously, it's, uh -- it's your call. You wanna let it slide this one time? You may not be able to grasp the concept of accountability. Just know my butt is on the line here, okay? It is against the law to publish a person's medical information without their permission. Is there any way the files can be traced back to her login? I'm a professional. I cover my tracks.

[ Sighs ] My sister will never take the blame for my actions.

[ Scoffs ]

[ Inhales deeply ] Fine. I will not come forward with what I know. This time. But if it happens again, family or not, I will not only throw you under the bus -- I'll be driving it.

[ Sighs ] Thank you. We're not friends. But maybe we could be allies. It's a great relief to me to know that as much as you may dislike me... I know you hate franco even more. To set the record straight -- I do want things to work out with jordan. I love my wife very much. That much hasn't changed. But something has. I just don't think I can get past all the lies she's told me. I'm not gonna defend jordan. The secret she kept about taggert damn near destroyed Trina. But if I'm being real here, I also lied to you once upon a time. And when I confessed, you were gone before I even had a chance to try to make things right with you. So it seems to me that you... have a hard time with people that keep secrets. So, you're saying this is my issue?

[ Elevator bell dings ] What I'm saying is that relationships are a two-way street. What do you mean, "put down"? What is that supposed to mean? Okay, franco, you've said enough. L-let's just go home. Please. No. Peter: Meet drew cain. What's happening? Stop. Are you okay? Are you okay? Shut up!

[ Indistinct shouting ] Stay away from me! Franco? Franco! Let go! Listen! Franco!

[ Screams ]

[ Gasps ]


[ Gasps ] Mom, what did you just do?! Oh, my god. Dante? Okay, alright. Alright, alright. Okay. Dante! Dante. Dante? Are you okay? Dante, can you hear me? Stay with me, okay?

[ Groans ] Stay with me. He's got a pulse.

[ Groans ] It's okay.

[ Whispering ] I'm so sorry. Mom. What were you thinking?!

[ Breathing heavily ] He's having a seizure. I don't think I'm being unreasonable. Shouldn't we all be honest with each other? In a perfect world, yeah, of course. But people aren't perfect, curtis. Haven't you ever lied before? Well, yeah, when I was using. I would hope for a higher standard now that I'm not. Everybody lies. And if they didn't, you'd be out of a job. So a-all I'm trying to say to you is that maybe when the pain isn't so raw, maybe you can find forgiveness for some of the people that have hurt you. Okay. Elizabeth! What happened? He was stabbed with a loaded syringe. Give him midazolam, 2 milligrams, and we need a backboard and a gurney right now. Okay. We need to get him to a trauma room, stat. Okay. Okay, come on, dante. Stay with me. Portia: Stay with me, dante. It's okay. Stay with me. Jackie: So even though you almost died, you were more focused on the cover-up. That necklace that sasha is wearing... do you think you're addicted? ...Looks just like my daughter'S. Sasha: I think I was abusing the drugs, for sure. Nina, wait. You don't want to do this on national television. But I was defensive and in denial. I couldn't admit to myself that I had an issue. Jackie: Ms. Gilmore, we're just about out of time. I'd really like to thank you for sharing your story with me,

and the country.

And as you said, hopefully you being brave enough to tell it

can help someone.

Thank you for allowing me

to share my side of the story.

This is jackie templeton

from "gma3."

Back to you, amy and T.J. Staffer: And we're out.

[ Sighs ] I bet deception's social media is blowing up. Let's go check! Okay. Jackie: Really nice job. Sasha: Thank you. Feel okay about it? Yeah. Sasha. How could you do this? You know how much that necklace means to me. What are you talking about? Oh, my god. How could you be so heartless? You two are the best. Really. You're gonna wake up one day a-and not know who you are, I sure did pick the two most kindest people in the whole world to help me out. But that state trooper did not know what he was talking about. Why'd you take off, Mike? You had a job here. Don't get me wrong -- I'm grateful. But I heard you guys talking about me. And, uh... you said something was wrong with my brain. Why don't you go upstairs, Mike, and clean up? You've been out all night. Nah, that's alright. I -- I -- I just need to go someplace where, you know, people are willing to listen to my ideas. I may be a kind woman, Mike, but I have my limits. I am more than willing to call the trooper back here. You need to take care of yourself. Alright, I'll... I'll wash up.

[ Sniffles ]

[ Sighs ] Phyllis. You know I love how big-hearted you are, but this has gone too far. Sure, Mike --

[Sighs] If that's even his real name -- helped us out one time, but we have more than repaid him. If he has mental issues, like you suspect, he could be dangerous without even knowing it. I don't think Mike is dangerous. But he does need help. I know how this works. You help every person you can. It's your way of doing penance for that private adoption you helped out with. You still feel guilty about giving that woman's baby away.

[ Sighs ] Sasha, you know how much that necklace design means to me. Why would you choose to wear it? I thought this interview was about owning up to the mistakes you've made, not compounding them. I'm so sorry, nina. I-I have no idea why they put this on me. Nina. Nina, I get that the cameras are off, but this is not a good idea to do in public. There's still a reporter here. Oh, don't stop on my account, please. Uh, jackie. Chase was just about to drive me to the hospital so I can sign my last few forms before I start my first day in the nursing program. Why don't you come with us? I've barely had a chance to talk to you.

[ Chuckles ] I know you're trying to distract me, but I will take any excuse to spend time with my son. I want to do a follow-up with you soon. Good luck, sasha. All right, sasha, the reporter has left the room. I'm still waiting to hear why you're wearing that necklace. Nina, i swear, wardrobe picked out my accessories. I genuinely didn't even see the necklace until you pointed it out. I have no idea why they chose it. I think carly might.

Portia: He stopped seizing, but his pulse is racing and thready, and his breathing is shallow. Get him to trauma room one right now. Do we know what he was injected with? The syringe is right here on the floor. Okay, no one touch it. We need security and a lab tech down here right now -- I need a full analysis on what's in that syringe. I need security and a lab tech on one. There's been an accidental injection. What were you thinking? I was trying to protect you. I thought he was gonna hurt you. And then dante came out of nowhere. I didn't mean to hurt him. [ Sobs ] You were trying to hurt franco! I thought he was gonna hurt you. [ Sobs ] Mom, you can't take the law into your own hands. And can you honestly tell me that if you were sober, you would have picked that syringe up?

[ Sobbing ] Carly was very concerned about that necklace. Tried to get lucy to shut the interview down halfway through. Nina, you showed me that necklace months ago, and I knew what you'd think when you saw it. And I was trying to stop exactly what's happening now. I don't know. It looked like you were serving your own interests. Nina: Valentin, please, I can't handle any more of your lies. Carly... I trust that you will tell me the truth. Do you know where that necklace came from? I think it's really commendable that you decided to switch careers. It's not that I want to give up on teaching. My goal is to someday combine my nursing and teaching skills. Maybe teach the student nurses. Or run an allied health program in schools. I mean, after I [Scoffs] Work really hard for a very long time.

[ Chuckles ] Of all the things harry told me about you, he never mentioned you were so ambitious. I like it. Learning something about you all the time. Me too. That's not a bad thing, harry. Keeps the relationship fresh.

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh, it's the station. I need to take this.

[ Sighs ] You want to tell me what just happened? All you've been doing is warning me to not trust peter, and now you're defending him?

[ Sighs ] I just think you're safer if peter thinks that you're his ally.

[ Sighs ] Okay, that makes sense. But I don't need you to protect me from peter or cyrus or anyone else. Hell, there are plenty of people who would say that

i need protection from you. Wait, dante was attacked? Actually, I'm at gh now. I'll head down to the first floor.

When I took that baby girl to florida all those years ago... ...I had no idea madeline reeves was conning me. I always thought I was helping nina. I know that. And from what you've told me about your conversation with nina, she understood that, too. I think it's noble that you keep wanting to balance the scales. But it could backfire this time.

[ Clears throat ] I want to thank you again for handling the state trooper. I'm gonna be getting out of your hair here real soon. But lenny and I promised state trooper finchley we'd responsible for you. If you don't stay here, he could toss you in a jail cell, and we all know you can't make bail. But, Mike, if you're gonna stay here, there are going to be some conditions. Which are? I want you to come back with me to the clinic, so you can speak to a mental health specialist who volunteers there from time to time.

[ Chuckling ] Mental... mental health expert? I don't have a lot of experience with psych patients, but I know enough to recognize the symptoms. It seems you may be having some sort of mania. Carly, if you know anything about that necklace, you have to tell me. Avery: It's mine! I gave sasha the necklace. Hey, avery, sweetie, what are you talking about? I didn't mean to make everyone mad. I gave it to sasha to wear for good luck. Oh. No one's mad at you. But can you tell me where you found that necklace? I found it outside when mommy took me to the cabin. So what, they, um, called you to investigate? Dispatch sent a detective, but I was close, so... decided to have a look.

[ Sighs ] Apparently, there was an assault? Yeah, um, I arrived after the fact, but apparently, um, alexis davis stuck dante falconeri with a syringe full of something.

[ Scoffs ] Was she drunk? Sorry, forget I asked. I'll wait for the detective's report. Alright. Good seeing you. Can we please not do this? Make small talk? Exchange pleasantries? Could we try to have an actual conversation? We're both entitled to our feelings about what happened and what I kept from you. But you can't keep us in this limbo forever. It's been over a month, curtis. If you want us to work this out, then we have to try to work this thing out. You need to come home. Either that, or tell me to stop waiting for you. I deserve that much. Dante was injected with a near-lethal dose of lidocaine. We could be looking at a local anesthetic systemic toxicity. We need to start him on a rapid infusion of lipid emulsion at 1.5 milliliters per kilogram stat to bind the medication. Elizabeth: Will there be lasting damage? His pressure is starting to bottom out, and he's had two runs of v-tach. If we don't start him on that infusion, we could lose him.

[ Monitors beeping ]

[ Elevator bell dings ] I heard somebody attacked dante. No, it was an accident -- alexis was trying to kill me. Dante just got in the way. What have I done? Ms. Davis. We received reports that you attacked dante falconeri. Care to shed any light on that?

[ Voice breaking ] I didn't mean to do it. It was an accident. Did you witness the incident? I'm -- I mean -- I don't -- I, um... I don't know. It all happened so fast. Okay, just tell me what you remember. Come on, sam. You can tell me here or at the police station. It's my understanding that dante is in bad shape, and you said you were a witness to the attack. I saw the whole thing. My mother stabbed dante with a syringe while she was trying to attack franco baldwin.
