(This still needs extensive editing)

Oh. I'm sure it's after 5:00 somewhere in the world you've written a story about. Well, thank you.

[ Glasses clink ] You know, I barely know either of these couples. I kind of feel like a wedding crasher, a little bit.

[ Laughs ] Well, you are, uh -- you're my plus one, so you're more than welcome, even if you are, um, separated from Finn's daddy.

[ Laughs ] I'm sure you're not intimidated by wedding bells, now, are you? You're late. I know, sweetheart. Do you know what day it is? It's our wedding day!

[ Sighs ] If you are having second thoughts, speak now or forever hold your peace, because once the plan's in motion... I understand how this works. Oh, god, valentin, this is going to affect a lot of people's lives, including Finn'S. I feel as if I should really just give him a heads-up. Well, then, you would be making him complicit. We have to do this ourselves because we are the ones who made peter the man that he is. So it's up to us to stop him. Yeah.

[ Door opens ] Oh, I thought I heard voices. Hi. What did I just interrupt? You're hearing voices? Just the one. The doctor in geneva thought it was a leftover drew memory, not the tumor. Okay, so, this voice -- do you recognize it? I sure do. It's peter August'S. What does he say? He talks about your brother drew... and he talks about you. Admit it, father. Wherever you are. Whatever corner of hell you're lurking in. You were so sure I would never see this day. Told me I was born to fail. Well, guess what? You were wrong. I won. [ Laughs ] Obrecht: It's time to strike

at peter's heart. I get the woman I love and the life I always dreamed of, and there's nothing you or anyone can do to stop me. Not spinelli. Not robert. Not even jason morgan.

[ Knocks on door ] Dante. I'm surprised to see you here. Mind if I come in?

[ Sighs ] She's not here. I told you. She'd never risk peter seeing her wedding dress before the ceremony. She's too superstitious. I know, but that still doesn't tell us where she is. You, uh, missing something? Yeah -- the bride. Uh, maxie. Not anna. So, how's maxie? Ready for her big moment? Uh, we really couldn't say. Maxie's not in her room. And we looked everywhere. We've tried texting her. Nothing. I hate to worry you, mac, but we really have no idea where she is. Oh, my god, what are you doing here? No, you're not seeing things. I'm really here. No, you are supposed to be in prison for trying to murder franco and andre maddox! I was framed, just as I said when I was arrested. I told everyone, and no one believed me -- not even my britta. But now, you must believe me before your wedding takes place and it's too late to turn back.

Kevin collins set up a visit for me in geneva to see a specialist named dr. Kirk. He's the doctor who treated dante for his ptsd and treated liesl obrecht for being liesl obrecht. And I only saw this guy once, but his theory was that the voice in my head was a side effect of the memory mapping. When drew's memories were implanted into franco's brain by shiloh and arthur cabot. I mean, that all kind of tracks for me, but how -- how does peter fit in? I don't know. I mean, I never had a second visit with the guy. Why not? Because dr. Kirk was murdered. This doesn't make any sense. If this was legit, why didn't you tell me? And how long have you been in Port Charles? Long enough to learn you're pregnant. Who else knows you're here, liesl? My britta, of course, and franco knows. I saw him in switzerland along with his father, scott. I can only assume your godmother, the queen of hypocrites, knows. And why did you wait so long to see me? Because I kind of can't believe your first stop when you got into town wasn't to see your grandson. It has been torture to remain in hiding. I can't wait to hold james in my arms again. But I knew people would be skeptical of my release -- just like nobody believed me when I was arrested. I was sure I'd get the same disbelief now. But events have overtaken me. It's your wedding day. That's why you must believe me, liebchen. Save yourself and save your children while you still can. Did maxie mention james' drawing to anybody? No, why?

[ Sighs ] James drew a picture that said, "happy wedding day, mommy & daddy" on it, and it really unsettled maxie that james called peter "daddy." Well, that's not surprising. It probably reminded maxie that james' real daddy is nathan -- my good brother. Oh. Peter can live to be 100 years old, and he's never gonna live up to nathan. Um, I am gonna go and keep looking for maxie. You know, I-I don't disagree with britt. Look, nathan is a hard act to follow, and if maxie's having second thoughts -- may-- maybe she just needed a little space. You know weddings can be overwhelming sometimes. Maybe she just, you know, thinks that she can't smile through it right now -- has the jitters. It's gonna be okay. I mean, you know, you -- you try to talk yourself down and say that it's just a fancy party, but... you get to saying those vows, you know, "for better and for worse," it's committing to a lot. And it's a lot to live up to. Weddings don't intimidate me. They just don't impress me the way they used to. You know, fairy tales, uh, don't have quite the same appeal when you've suffered a few disappointments in the real world. Yeah, well, I guess I've taken a few hits in that area myself, but... like to think that I'm still optimistic. Besides, this time around, you get two shots to catch the bouquet.

[ Laughs ] You look so beautiful. Hey, you know, I just want you to know -- all the stuff going on here today -- you're always gonna be number one to me. But how did you get here? Whe-- where is every-- my niece insisted you needed her help getting ready. I believe the word she used was "hopeless." And she'd be right.

[ Chuckles ] I know you've been looking forward to this. This day is important to you -- almost as important as it is to me. But... you know, I -- I -- I know you already have a mommy, and she loves you very much, but I was hoping maybe you'd start to think of anna as kind of a -- a second mommy.

[ Whispers ] Yeah? Don't tell anna, but I already do. I love you. I love you, too. Mm. Where did she get this big heart? Not from you.

[ Laughs ] All right, violet, your nanny's waiting for you to come check out the wedding cake and make sure that everything is comme il faut. Excuse me? That's french for "perfect."

[ Chuckles ] Oh.

Au revoir, boys.

Au revoir.

[ Blows kiss ] Man, I --

[ Door closes ] I don't know what I did to deserve all this. I mean, beautiful daughter, beautiful bride. It's more than any man can ask for. You're right. You don't deserve any of it.

[ Laughs ] Anna: What, us? My cop instincts are almost never wrong, so spill. You two are up to something, aren't you? That depends who's asking -- if it's my close friend or the police commissioner. And that depends on your answer. I say we confess. The truth is, I love her, I've always been in love with her, and I'm trying to get her to ditch Finn to run away with me. Oh, okay, well, the best thing you could do is -- is leave now. All right, well, you still have some time to change your mind. Commissioner. Okay, so I am definitely getting "former colleagues collaborating" vibes off of you and valentin. Oh. And since you guys were spies together, that's a little alarming. Fortunately, I am off the clock, and I really need someone to have a happy ending. Are you here because I let you go from the invader? No, peter, I'm not here to get my job back. Maxie's happiness is everything to lulu. And because she can't be here for obvious reasons, I thought I'd step in on her behalf... and give you a friendly warning. If you ever... do anything to make maxie regret this day...'re gonna answer to me. You seem a bit on edge, dante. I hope you're not harboring any resentments toward me for alexis' drunken attack. No, you know, alexis was going for franco. I just got in the way. But now that you bring it up, you had to know that something like that could have gone down when you decided to publish that story on franco. Just doing my job. I can appreciate that. You know, we all have jobs to do. Sometimes people get hurt. Dante: [ Thinking ] Ready to

complete the mission.

Dante, what is it? I was just thinking about when you first came to Port Charles. You were on a mission... to tear down your parents -- faison because he was a sociopath and anna because... why, again? I blamed my mother for a lot of things that weren't true, dante, but I was able to put down my resentments, find a better path. Instead of obsessing over vengeance, I decided to make something of my own life. Hmm. Become a man that maxie could be proud of. Yeah, well, you know, I have a -- a mission of my own.

[ Knock on door ] Hey! Hello, dante. Didn't expect to see you here. Everything okay? Yeah, I was just talking about my mission to say what lulu can'T... and wish peter and maxie nothing but the best.

[ Door closes ] What was that about? I'm not sure. But I was right to terminate dante's employment with the invader. He seems a bit off. Yeah, I think anna would agree with you. He hasn't been the same since he got home. You've been talking with anna. I talk to her from time to time. But you haven't been disclosing anything we discussed? My errors in judgment. Peter, you can count on me. I will do what's right. You know, it was a relief for me to be able to confide in you and, uh, to know that you would keep my confession between us. I wish there was some way I could show you my gratitude. You can. Forgive me. You came back into town to blame this on peter, didn't you? Accuse him of being the one to try and murder franco and andre. There's a problem with that theory, liesl. He's the one who saved their lives. So, how do you explain that? I never said peter wasn't clever or cunning. He's both. What he lacks is courage. But then... if you didn't have any doubts about peter, what brought you here when you should be getting ready to walk down the aisle? You came here to ask nathan's approval, yeah? Did you get the answers you came looking for? My dear, brave son. Don't worry.

Mutter has come back to finish what you began. Bring the guilty to justice. Oh, liesl, stop! Please! For your sake, for james' sake, stop! Peter is not the man that you think he is! No, my dear, you've got it turned around. Peter isn't the man

you think he is. Hell, he's not even the man he thinks he is. Hey, there, curtis. I was actually looking for you. I wanted to apologize for earlier. I had no idea I would be stepping in it when I mentioned buying out your part of the business in front of... yeah, don't -- ...jordan. I am -- don't even worry about that. You know what? I'm more excited that -- that you're willing to buy my half of the pi business. I get to live out this dream that I didn't even know I had a month ago. Speaking as your friend and not your business partner, we haven't signed any paperwork yet. So if you're having any second thoughts -- I know running a nightclub is a -- a big deal and there's a lot to learn. I have faith in you. Just, my advice -- make sure you're running towards something and not away from someone. So, I have something for you. What? This was a gift from aunt stella on my wedding day. Oh.

[ Chuckles ] That's really beautiful, jordan. I could never take it from you. No, we're just following wedding protocol. You're borrowing it for the day. This takes care of something old, borrowed, and blue. Yeah. Hey.

[ Chuckles ] Is everything okay?

[ Sighs ] I just have a feeling that this wedding isn't going to happen.

[ Chuckles ]

 really upset at the thought of you moving out, so, um, I'm just gonna go check on him, okay?

[ Retreating footsteps ] All right, let me see if I -- if I have this straight. Dr. Kirk treated dante and liesl obrecht. You have one meeting with him, and he ends up dead. Yeah. Swiss police said he was the victim of a mugging. And, no, I'm not the one who mugged him, if that's what you're thinking. Actually, I have no idea what it is you're thinking. Are you being treated by a doctor at gh right now? Mm-hmm. Did you tell them that you're hearing peter's voice? Yes, I did. Why wasn't that a part of peter's

invader story on you? Maybe he didn't think it was newsworthy. Or maybe he just missed that part in the file. No, peter didn't get any of this from a file. I'm -- I'm the one who told him that I could hear his voice in my head. Peter: I don't understand. Why would you need me to forgive you? You've been my friend -- oftentimes my only friend -- since I came to Port Charles. I will always regret what I've done. I'll always regret my part in your childhood. I took you as a baby and delivered you to your father because I was furious with anna. She'd wronged me, and I wanted her to hurt. And if not for me, you'd have never met faison. So I'm responsible for your toxic childhood. I'm not gonna say that my childhood wasn't traumatic... but you've more than made up for it in my adulthood. You've mentored me, supported me, and you've kept my most closely guarded secrets. I wouldn't be marrying maxie today if it weren't for you, valentin. And anna... all the darkness that my father wanted to instill in me, and in the end, it was all outweighed by the goodness of my mother. And to think, when I first came to this city, I wanted her dead. We can't change the past, peter. We can just shape the future. It's not too late. Too late for what? Okay, e-enough. I am not listening to this anymore. I'm not listening to any more dire warnings or -- or cryptic comments! I've gotten an earful from britt and all the other haters. Guess what? I love peter, and that's all that matters. If you won't listen to me, listen to nathan. Nathan is dead. He can't talk to me. Nonsense. His spirit lives on inside you -- his courage, his goodness. If you can't trust me, trust him. He's telling you peter isn't worthy. Peter -- why don't we talk about the real reason that you're doing this, huh? I don't think it's to get back at peter. I don't think it's to save me. I think it's because you hate anna. You want to punish her because peter's father loved her and not you. I hate these things. They're ridiculous. I feel like I'm a monocle away from being the monopoly man. Why are you being so grouchy? You have nothing to complain about. You, sir, are about to marry the woman of your dreams. Do you know what I would give to say that? And if you stop to think about how today is affecting dad -- I mean, yeah, he's putting on a big smile for violet, but we both know he wishes he was sitting hand-in-hand with my mom. Yeah, I don't know, chase. From what dad told me, he and jackie have been drifting apart for years. Yeah, he said something similar to me, which really shocked me, because I always thought that they had a perfect marriage. But earlier today, he said that mom was radio silent 24 hours before the wedding. He wondered if she was backing out. You know, I -- I got to admit that it took a while for me to accept Finn in anna's life. Mm. But now, I want nothing but the best for them. And the other couple at the altar? Well, let's put it this way. If this double wedding should happen to become a single wedding... ...I would consider it a victory.

[ Chuckles ] I know mac said they can't find maxie, but do you really think it's possible that she would get cold feet and not show? Do we have a runaway bride situation going on with maxie? Someone should look in the bride's room, see if she's looking for that right pair of shoes or having a wardrobe malfunction like you on our wedding day. You stayed in that bride room so long, I thought you might be a no-show. That was a long time ago. Hmm. Lucky for me, she made her way up the aisle in time to say "I do." Whoa, whoa. Easy, my man. The reception comes afterthe ceremony, remember? Yeah, uh, I guess I'm not as ready for this day as I thought I was.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] You thinking about lulu? Lulu and maxie.

[ Sighs ] Well, still no sign of maxie. Maybe she listened to me and came to her senses -- decided to cut her losses while she still could. Oh, well, you -- you're not a fan of peter's? I'm just cynical about the institution of marriage. Maybe maxie skipped the wedding and all the heartache that's likely to come from a messy divorce down the line. Hmm. I have seen the way that Finn looks at you, anna. Nothing is going to keep him from standing by your side today, and we know nothing is going to stop maxie from marrying peter. So I think it's a safe bet that the wedding is going to happen. Yeah, you're right. I know I'm just being silly.

[ Inhales deeply, sighs ] I've got these earrings, you know. Um, I can't choose. Maybe you can help me. Okay. I think, uh -- I'm thinking these ones. You never usually give up this easily. Maybe I was right before. Maybe you and valentin are really planning something. Anna, talk to me. If someone is planning on throwing high explosives instead of birdseed, I need to know about it.

Psst! Psst! You're good. Jordan, I think you've been in the game too long. Now you just suspect everyone of having deep, dark secrets. Oh, god, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean that to come out the way it did. It's okay. You're right.

[ Sighs ] The reason I am solo tonight is because of all the things that I didn't, um... or couldn't share with curtis. I'm gonna give you a minute alone, okay?

[ Sighs ] I gave you something old, borrowed, and blue... so here's the something new. Don't repeat my mistakes. In our work, secrets and lies are a given. Unfortunately, so are failed relationships. If you can't trust me with whatever you're planning with valentin, at least trust the man you're about to marry. Chase, I think it'S... it's very difficult to know a marriage from the outside looking in. But none of this is your fault. You know, and you shouldn't beat yourself up trying to figure out what went wrong between dad and jackie. You ever get bored being right? I mean, even dad gets it wrong from time to time, but you always seem to know the right thing to say to make your little brother feel better. But, hey, today is your wedding day. My issues with mom and dad have nothing to do with you. So, come on. It's showtime. Yeah. Come on, let's go. Phew. Oh, hey, uh, you got the rings, right? Rings? What rings? The rings I gave you to hold so i wouldn't forget them. Yeah, yeah, I got the rings. Oh, my gosh. You're an easy mark. You got something here. Sloop! Wait till you see violet in her flower girl dress. She's totally adorable. Oh, yeah, I'm sure she is. Um... but we... can't keep ignoring this forever. Ignoring what? You, me, us. So, there's stillthe possibility of an "us"? If so, then this trial separation has been well worth it. I'm not trying to be cold or cruel here, just -- just honest. This isn't a trial separation, at least not for me. Um... these are the first steps on the road to divorce, and the sooner we both accept that, the sooner... the wounds heal and we can all move on with our lives. And that's including harry. I know that having faison and obrecht as your parents didn't make you an optimist, but... are you really that cynical? Hey, hey, hey, hey. Oh, I -- I got it. I got it, thanks. I guess weddings just give me the shakes. I despise anna devane, but that doesn't mean I'm lying or that I want to hurt you. Far from it. I had hoped you would have come to this realization by now yourself. Peter is playing a game. The man he is underneath is desperate and dangerous and no one you should be with. Okay, I -- I wouldn't listen to this from britt. I'm certainly not gonna listen to it from you. Britta is just trying to help you, maxie, out of her loyalty to nathan. I'm begging you, please trust her. If you can't trust her, trust yourself. You knew real love with nathan. Peter can never give you that. You're wrong. Liesl, peter does love me... and I love him. Anna loves him, too. We see the good in him, and if I am forced to choose between believing you or believing peter's mother, I will choose anna and the man that I am going to marry. Peter, what I meant was, no matter where life takes you, I will never turn my back on you.

[ Scoffs ] Well, you make it sound like goodbye. Well, after today, your life will be very different. Yeah, I'll -- I'll be a husband, and soon, the baby will be here. Before long, I won't have nearly as much free time, but I will always make time for you, valentin. So no more talk of forgiveness or what might have been done differently, all right? It's like you said -- we carve out our own futures. That's very true. Before you and maxie exchange wedding vows, I have to give you something. Peter, you've earned this.

So, you told peter that you were hearing his voice in your head. Yeah, I did. I-it's not like I was, you know, talking to a priest in a confessional. It just kind of came up in casual conversation. I d-- I don't see what the big deal is. I don't -- what does it matter if I hear his voice in my head or bruce springsteen? What -- what does it matter to peter August? I couldn't tell you what goes through peter's head. What does that even mean? You only care about what's in franco's head because he's the threat? Okay, I -- I don't -- I don't think that's what jason was saying. Honestly, jason, did you come here looking for answers? Or did you come here with your mind already made up? I couldn't let the day go by without a gift for the groom.

[ Chuckles ] Charlotte helped me pick them out. Ah, well, you have taught her well. She has excellent taste. You know, valentin, there was a time when I wasn't sure if I could trust you. But the truth is, you have stood by me through nearly every phase of my journey. And here you are, now, today, standing by my side on the most important day of my life. I wouldn't be anywhere else. The bride is almost ready. Well, that makes one of them. Maxie is still awol, so I'm gonna go look for her. Sam, wait. Uh, the news about curtis selling his part of the pi business and buying a nightclub was a surprise. But you've always been a good friend to him, and if curtis is starting a new life, I'm just glad that you'll be by his side. Well, thank you. And for what it's worth, I think he's gonna do great. Yeah. Excuse me.

[ Chuckles ] Thank you for being so gracious. You sure about this? Not because I don't think you'll be great, but it'll be a big adjustment. I have to admit, I, um -- I was beginning to have some doubts. But I feel really solid about my decision. You know, it just -- it just feels right. It's time for me to make a change. Well, obviously, you don't need my support or approval. I just really hope that this makes you happy. I'm not gonna fight you on this, jackie. I'm never going to stop loving you. But I also understand that sometimes... love isn't enough. You're not gonna believe this. Caught this guy trying to sneak out. But don't worry -- I told him that he missed his chance, and he can't turn back now. But you tell him, dad. Too late. Yes, that -- that seems to be the case. I think I could use a glass of champagne. Join me? Mm.

[ Sighs ] You've -- you've made your father proud today and your brother very happy by including his whole family. You know that's harry's dream. Mm.

[ Chuckles ] You know, every time I see you, you make a point of saying that chase is my brother. It's who he is. Unless he's my son. Look, hamilton, it's -- it's your -- it's your wedding day, right? Can we just drop the subject for 24 hours? Yeah. Dna tests can wait. Today's not the day for family secrets. Oh, my god, I turned my phone off on my wedding day? What was I thinking? It makes sense to me. You wanted to be with your true love -- my nathan. I totally lost track of time, and now everybody wants to know where I am. I'm gonna be late for my own wedding. Maxie, please, don't go. You can't stop me. And for your sake, I wouldn't try. Very well. You must do what you must do. Bye, liesl.

[ Sighs ] And I will do what i must do.

 If your financial situation has changed, we may be able to help. For your sake and the boys' sake, I hope franco gets better. I'll be in touch. Franco: Hey, jason? Um... if dr. Kirk is right and the voice in my head is just a leftover drew memory, then what? What are you gonna do about it? Just take care of your family... ...and I'll take care of everything else.

[ Sighs ]

[ Door opens, closes ] Oh, thank god! You're not ready yet either. Okay, where have you been? Okay, I know, I know. I got like a hundred texts asking me where I was. I guess it must've been important enough for you to delay getting ready. You know what? It doesn't matter. Let's just get ready. I want everything to be perfect. I want to remember this day for the rest of my life.

[ Sighs ] I think we both will. Liesl: I tried my best, nathan. Britta tried. But no mere words were going to change maxie's mind and convince her to let peter go.

[ Sighs ] He so does not deserve her, hmm? No. The only person who can stop this wedding...

[ Chuckles ] ...Is the mother of the groom. Well, all I need to do now is add the cufflinks, and I'll be good to go. I guess I'll, uh, let folks know you're ready, huh? Valentin. Thank you. Not just for the cufflinks. Thank you for believing in me. Hey, it's my wedding day.

[ Laughs ] Come on, I'm the one that's supposed to be getting emotional. I know, I know.

[ Door opens ]

[ Sighs ] It's on.

[ Sighs ] Franco. Franco. You don't have to leave the house. Yeah, but I do. I don't want this. I do. The boys don't want this. Yeah, nobody wants this. This is the hardest thing that I have ever done in my life. But whether it was a reflex or a nightmare or the tumor growing back, I attacked cameron, and it was violent, it was awful. And what if that had been jake?

[ Sighs ] What if that had been aiden? I would never forgive myself. You would never forgive me. We talked about this... and I'm never gonna risk hurting someone I love as much as I love you and as much as I love these boys. And I'll be back. I will be back as soon as I know that I'm not a risk to any of you.

[ Door slams ]

[ Hitches breath, sighs ] Dante, my son's told me a lot about you. Good to meet you. So, are you ready to walk maxie down the aisle? Y-- I'm ready [Sighs] But I'm not sure about maxie. No one's heard from her, and I'm getting concerned.

[ Cellphone rings ] Hey. Anna. Yeah, have you, uh, found maxie? No one's seen her. Yeah, maxie's here. She's in the suite. Oh, glad to hear it. Is she okay? Why was she so late? I don't know why she was so late. Everything's back on track, though. Glad to hear it.

[ Inhales deeply ] Okay, both brides are in the building and should be down soon. Jordan: Great. Both brides, but I'm only seeing one groom. Finn: Uh, hey, excuse me? Um, I want to thank you all for coming, and we're gonna get started, uh, very, very soon. I understand that, uh, maxie's officially in the building, and she's getting ready. And as for peter... well, I think it's safe to say he wouldn't miss this day for anything.

[ Peter shouts ]
