Hey. Is violet okay? Oh, yeah. Yeah, she, uh -- she fell asleep watching a movie. Thanks for getting her out of there. Oh, yeah, I could tell things were about to go south. What ended up happening? Apparently, anna knew that peter wasn't her son, and she didn't tell Finn, which I'm sure was really hard for her, and I'm trying not to judge, but... but? How can you plan on marrying somebody and keep something so major from them?

[ Knock on door ] Can I come in?

[ Door closes ] I'm sure you have a lot of questions. Just one. What else are you lying about? Okay, I'm getting a little nervous. Why haven't you answered me?

[ Sighs ] Because I just can't believe you still want to marry me. Of course I do. Peter, my love for you hasn't changed just because your mother has. Are you sure? Maxie, please be honest. I don't want your pity. Oh, you know who I pity? Liesl. She's so determined to wreck our lives that she made enemies out of everyone. What you do have is my love, my respect, and my heart. I hope I still have yours. You do, and I will marry you.

[ Chuckles ] This must be stopped. Peter is not who maxie thinks. The face he shows her, the pretense of morality and kindness, it's all a lie. He's a manipulator. He cannot be trusted. And he must not be allowed to go home to my grandson. I owe it to nathan to keep james safe. Mother, what are you doing? What must be done. Maxie and james must be protected. Valentin: I'm sorry, maxie. I cannot allow this wedding to continue until you learn who peter truly is.

[ Scoffs ] What is he talking about? I-I don't know. Valentin, what the hell are you talking about? This has gone on long enough. It's time the truth has come to light. Everything okay? Yes. Nina's not returning my calls. Ah. So I thought I would run into her downstairs, but it looks like she skipped out on maxie's wedding. Oh, at least that's one sacred ceremony she can't desecrate. I think I might know where she is. Or more accurately, who she's with. Really? Who? Wiley. Hey, nina. Hey. Come on in. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me come over. Yeah, I'm glad you could make it on such short notice. Are you kidding? I would have jumped off an airplane mid-flight just to be here. I'm just grateful, michael. Thank you for giving me a chance to get to know my grandson, to be in his life. It means the world to me. Hey, liesl. Um, it's me. So, I checked into the metro court just for tonight until I can check myself into shadybrook tomorrow. So if you feel like breaking into a hotel... or just, I don't know, maybe give me a call back.

[ Knock on door ] Hey. Hi. You all settled in? Uh, kind of. What are you doing here? Well, you didn't bring very much stuff with you, so we brought some things to help it feel like home. You didn't have to do that. Really, I-I would've been able to manage. Well, it was my idea. I got upset and I stormed off and I didn't have a chance to say goodbye. Valentin: Maxie, you need to listen to me. Peter: No, she doesn'T. Okay, everybody needs to just stop. It doesn't matter to me who peter's mother is. It doesn't change how I feel. It doesn't change how I feel, either. I'm not condemning peter because alex is his mother. Peter has condemned peter to the actions he has taken, the choices he has made. You are a liar, peter. Your redemption is a lie. You cannot have redemption if you lack the capacity to accept and acknowledge who you truly are. You clearly do not have the courage to do that, so I will do that for you.

Well, it's very generous of michael to allow nina to have a relationship with wiley. Yeah, I mean, are you surprised? No, of course not. Michael and that big heart of his. Well, I'm sure that nina really appreciates it. I'm sure. Why? Do you think that michael was wrong to do that? No, no, I-I think nina should get to know wiley and vice versa. She is his grandmother. And let me say that I'm still furious with nina for how she behaved at Sonny's grave. She was way out of line, and I would tell that to her face. But that is between me and nina, not wiley. I'm just worried for nina to spend too much time with wiley right now. I mean, once she's settled down and into this new reality of hers -- I mean, nina has had one shock piled on top of the other. And even before she found out that nelle was her daughter, nina was making excuses for her, trying to paint nelle out to be not as guilty as she really was. Sure, trying to redeem her memory. That's right. And if nina allows that to bleed onto wiley, what's that gonna do to that little boy? Nina, wow, that was fast. Yes, uh, apparently, hearing the name wiley puts a little pep in my step. Can I see him? Yep. He's just playing with some blocks. Follow me. Wiley, look who's here to visit with you. Nina: Hi, wiley. Hey, bud, you remember nina, right? Your grandmother?

[ Chuckles ] Okay, that's enough of the goodbye stuff. Yeah, it's a temporary arrangement until the issue with the tumor is resolved. Or they aren't? Those are our only two options? Yep, those are the only two options. But, hey, you know, Terry says that while the tumor isn't shrinking, it's not growing, either, so that's good news. Elizabeth: Yeah, that's very good news. Buys us time to figure things out. What's this? I know you're protective of your brother, and you should be, but try not to be too hard on anna. Relationships are more complicated than anyone outside of them knows. Yeah, I'm starting to figure that out. Look, I'm -- I'm sorry, mom. For what? Not realizing how strained things were between you and dad. I mean, I-I had such an amazing childhood, so many fun memories of us together. I guess that's all I knew. And that's all you should know.

[ Sighs ] As a kid, um, of course, you -- you want your parents to be perfect, you want your world to be secure, and that's what your parents want for you. But the truth is, we're just -- we're all making it up as we go along, and, um, none of us are perfect. We're just doing the best we can. Sometimes that's enough, and sometimes it's not. Finn: So you've known peter wasn't your son since you got the lab results back. Yeah. And the plan was to never tell me? There was no plan. Um...

[ Sighs ] You know, when -- when we found out the truth, we just realized that everything had to be contained. "We"? Valentin and myself. So you trusted that little weasel more than you trust me? I don't know why you're doing this. Yeah, you do. Okay, can somebody get him out of here? Maxie, I really think that you should listen to him. All these years, I thought you cared about me. Oh, I do care. I do care. You are the man you are because of actions I've taken. Don't think that is ever lost on me. That's why I've promised to protect you from jason morgan. And I will not allow you to hurt anyone else. Definitely not maxie.

I mean, what phone is this? It's so three models ago. I know you don't need some old phone, but you might want what's on it. You said that you were experiencing some side effects from what shiloh did to you. Mm-hmm. Well, when you thought you were drew and you were about to do the procedure to bring you back, you -- or he -- asked for a phone to record something. It's the video that drew left you, the one you've been putting off watching for over a year. And I-I just figured that maybe there would be something on there that would help you understand the voices you've been hearing. Cool. Thanks. What, so you're not gonna listen to it, or...? No, I'd -- I would do anything to get drew out of my head. So... what else you got in here, though? I'm just really worried that nina is gonna tell wiley her version of who nelle was, and we both know that version is a lie. Okay, yes, but it's not like we can have an open conversation with wiley about nelle. No, no -- no kid wiley's age should know that their mother was insane and a killer, but he also shouldn't be brought up believing in a fantasy that's only gonna be shattered. Think about it, jax. What about when wiley's old enough to do the research and he finds out on his own who nelle was? It would be devastating. Yes. That's why I think, I don't know, while he's still young, we don't tell him much at all about nelle and then when he asks, we can just say, you know...she was troubled, she had some problems. We just keep it really vague. And then when he is mature enough to understand, we can tell him that she had a very terrible and abusive childhood and she grew up to do terrible and abusive things. Okay, so you don't think that nina's in a place right now where she understands that or would abide by it? Jax, I know she's not. And it's so hard because it's michael and Willow's decision, and I have to honor that. I'm just -- I'm scared. I'm scared that even with the best of intentions, this is gonna turn out awful for wiley. I know how this looks.

[ Sighs ] Um, when everything happened with jordan and curtis, I-I had this pit in my stomach that we were headed down the same road. It's not the same. No, I know. Hey, you know, I knew what I was getting into when I fell in love with you. I knew a certain part of your life existed in the shadows. What I didn't expect is you'd be keeping secrets from me and confiding in someone else. I'm sorry. I don't want your apologies. I want an explanation. Maxie: This is not news to me, valentin. I am completely aware that peter was coerced by helena and faison into kidnapping drew nine years ago. Except peter wasn't an unwitting pawn. He was actively trying to double-cross his father with the help of helena cassadine. He's lying. Why are you lying? Helena wanted it done. He orchestrated the whole thing -- the kidnapping, the memory swap. But you're right. It was a long time ago. My point is he knew what he had done was wrong, and he was working very hard to cover it up. So hard he did something much worse in the process. Like what? Maxie, you can't believe a word valentin says. You know he's a liar. No, I need to know what he's accusing you of. Go on. What is this horrible act that's so much worse than everything else? He brought down drew's plane. Are you saying he is responsible for murdering drew cain?

Son of a bitch!I knew it! I knew it was you! You killed scout's father! He's not worth it, okay? Stop! No, no, sam, I-it's not true, okay? It can't be true. It's why I was released, maxie. Peter framed me for his crimes. I've always suspected as much. Yeah, because you hate him. There's more. This is absurd. Maxie, let's get out of here. You're not taking her anywhere. First, drew's plane went down, and then what happened? And then I was kidnapped by shiloh. Shiloh knew... sam: What? ...That peter was responsible for drew's kidnapping. That's why peter arranged for shiloh to escape from prison. That's why peter was on a pier with a bag full of money. Peter wasn't buying an apartment, maxie. He was paying shiloh off. He was covering up one crime by committing a worse one in the process. So what's it gonna be? Am I buying a bunch of sunscreen and some visors to come visit you out in california?

[ Chuckles ] Well, first of all, no one wears visors, so... don't be so sure about that. Yeah, well, they shouldn'T. I love a visor. Mm? Mm-hmm, lots of people like visors.

[ Both chuckle ] You're not answering my question. Well, you remember how you said you wanted less drew inside your head? Mm-hmm. Oh.

[ Chuckles ] I get it.

[ Cellphone chimes ] You don't want anybody to pester you about your whole college situation. Ah, you catch on fast. Good for you. That's me. I'm super smart. Everybody says so. Right? Oh, it's the hospital. They're short-staffed. I have to go in. Okay, well, I-I'll hang out here for a minute, and I'll meet you back at home. Oh, yeah, you're right. It's not safe for you to stay here alone with me. Jax: I know you're in a different headspace where nina's concerned, but I feel terrible for her.Ugh. I mean, we -- we made a huge mistake by not telling nina that nelle was her daughter, and then an even bigger mistake because we forgot that wiley was her grandson. We didn't do that on purpose. No, I no, but it doesn't make it right. And you and i don't get to decide whether they have a relationship. You understand that, right? Yes, I agree with that 100%, jax. Okay, good. It's actually a blessing, when you think about it. Alright? Hear me out. Nina gets to have a relationship with her grandson, okay, without nelle around. I mean, she might not realize it right now, but that's actually the best thing for wiley. Amen to that. And I know I don't get a say in this at all, but you are right. Right now, I don't think that nina is capable of seeing nelle for who she really was 'cause she sees her as a -- as a victim. Yeah, a-and that's the picture she's going to paint -- nelle the way nina wanted her to be. Which would be okay now, but it would be sad if that's a pattern that gets laid down... mm-hmm. ...And that, without realizing, nina inflicts her pain and grief onto her grandson. Yay! Whoa! Willow: Whoa. Michael: Yeah, no, wiley's in that stage where the building part is just a means to total destruction. Yes. Exactly how it should be, you know, j was the same way at his age. He would have me spend hours -- thank you for this... yeah. ...Constructing these huge towers just so he could take them all out, like, I don't know, godzilla or something.

[ Cellphone chimes ] You want to do another one? Oh, great. What? What's wrong? Oh, just the stuff going down at aurora. Um, I'll be right back. Hey, bud, can mommy help you build? Wiley: Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] Your dad and I were happy for a long time, harry. I don't want you thinking you grew up in some kind of lie. No, I don'T. Good. Because for three decades, I had a wonderful family, including the most amazing son. Go on. I could.

[ Chuckles ] I could go on for hours about the joy you brought me, the joy you still bring me. Um, and I wouldn't give up those years with you or your father for anything. Look, were there times when your dad and i were on our own tracks? Yeah. Where a story was so tempting and I'd go after it when, you know, maybe I shouldn't have? Looking back, there's a thousand things I wish I'd done differently, but... that's just... life. Yep. Life. So, valentin came to me and he told me that, um, peter was way more culpable in this -- the kidnapping of jason and drew than he ever admitted to and that he'd gone to great lengths to cover it up, meaning that he'd had drew's plane sabotaged and he'd arranged that assassin to try to kill andre and franco. When was this? Uh, he told me a couple of days ago. And I realized that I could no longer be in denial about peter's guilt or pretend that his redemption was anything other than a show. And so we decided that, um, peter just couldn't marry -- marry maxie. So you has him abducted on his wedding day. Yeah. Um, look, I-I-I did this with valentin, not because I trust him more than I trust you, but because he understands the -- the complexities of my relationship with peter. And I don't? Well, 'cause he has the same relationship with him. I didn't want you anywhere near this. You're such... you're such a good man. I just -- I just didn't want you part of this whole tragic, sordid mess.

[ Chuckles ] Well, thank you for making that decision for me. I know you're angry. I don't blame you. But I can assure you that I didn't know any of this. I didn'T. And -- and I -- I didn't want to accept how bad peter really was. I just -- I couldn'T.

[ Crying ] It's not an excuse, it's not, but it's just the truth. Because of you, I allowed my daughter to be around a murderer. Oh, god, I would never have let violet be in any danger from him. Because of you, the wedding that she thought she was gonna be a part of was never actually gonna happen... no, but I didn't want -- ...because you were too busy playing spy games with valentin! Look, it just happened so fast. I couldn't tell you. There wasn't time. Was I really that much of an afterthought?

Do you think you can build the tallest skyscraper ever? Yeah. Yeah? Show mommy.

[ Sighs ] Maybe he'll grow up to be an architect. Yeah, maybe. So this is kind of wild, huh? You and me, part of the same family, playing games together. Yeah, we've come a long way. I think we're both in better places now. I certainly am. I mean, nothing will make up for losing the child that I gave birth to, but it meant so much that michael wanted me to stay in wiley's life. Not only stay, legally adopt him. After all that heartache, I'm still a mom.

[ Doorbell rings ] Excuse me.

[ Chuckles ] Hey. Carly. Yeah, come in. I didn't know you were coming by. I didn't, either. I was texting with michael, and he said that nina was coming by to see wiley.'s it going? Great. I think this will be really good for both of them. Yeah, so, um, I am your grandmother. Like, you know, your grandma carly? But, um -- that's nice. I'm not your mommy's mommy, sweetheart. That's not how we're related. Mom. I can't get into this right now. I have to get to work. Okay, so go. I'll be fine here for a few minutes. Hey, cam, your mom's right. What? I woke up from a nightmare, and I attacked you. That's such an exaggeration. I don't think it is. It's -- it'S... it's not. My head's not right. I can't believe this. Fine, fine. So are you coming with me, or is it somehow okay for you to be here alone with him? I'll be up here for a minute, and I will meet you down in the lobby. Whatever. Hey, cam. Cam, wait. Just one, like...

[ Sighs ] Thank you for bringing the stuff, bud. I see you in a little bit. Okay. You shouldn't be here. What? You know it, too. If I'm a potential threat to him, then I'm a potential threat to you. Sweetheart, I know this is painful, but it all makes sense. Yeah, except one thing. Anna knew all of this? The supposed truth about peter? She did. See, no.

[ Scoffs ] Anna, she would never do that to me. She loves me. She would never let this happen. Maxie. She wouldn't, mac, okay?! I know she wouldn't! If what valentin saying is true, anna would have told me. I was wrong. I know that. I just couldn't see my way out, which makes me no different than peter. I was selling you on a lie, and I was sharing my life with you and I wasn'T. I thought I was protecting you. I think I was really just protecting myself. I was trying to avoid this -- this moment right now. I just...

[ Cellphone ringing ]

[ Sniffles ] Don't answer that.

[ Ringing continues ] It's robert. It's gonna be about peter and maxie.

[ Sighs ] Yeah? What is it? You better get down here, and I mean right now. All that information that you and valentin have been hiding is about to hit the fan. And I don't know how peter's gonna react when he's pushed into a corner. Okay, I understand. You need to go. I want to work this out. You have other priorities.

[ Crying ] I'm so sorry. I'm -- I'm really sorry. So am I.

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ] Everything will be okay, honey. I know. I mean, you've seen us. It's not like your father and I can't be in the same room. Just the opposite. It is weirdly cordial. Because we have too much mutual respect for it not to be. Aw, man, it's getting late. I don't know when Finn's gonna be good. Do you think I should take violet? Probably. I mean, I'd love her to stay here -- she's so sweet -- but we're still practically strangers. She'd probably be more comfortable with you. Okay, I'll go get her. Okay. Harry... I love you, son. I love you, too, mom.

[ Sighs ] I'm right, aren't I? Everything valentin says, it's all lies. Of course it is, and this is the man who lied to nina about her daughter for over a year, the man who literally trades in secrets. Now, I don't know what kind of game he's playing, but it doesn't matter. No game. All that matters -- maxie, you look at me. All that matters is that I love you, alright? You have absolutely no reason to believe valentin. You have every reason to believe me, though.

How lucky are you, wiley? Two grandmothers in one night? Yes, come here. Come give me a hug. Come here.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, it's so good to see you. Hey, hey, look at me. Are you having fun with nina? Yeah. Yeah? [ Laughs ] Wiley, why don't we go get you into your pjs? Some good? Ooh. Then we'll come back down and play after? Yeah, go ahead. Yeah. Go. Go with mommy. Go ahead. Okay.

[ Sighs ] You checking up on me? No. Actually, um, well... I want to acknowledge that I-I may have been a little too blunt the other day. Well, that doesn't sound much like an apology. 'Cause it wasn'T. We both have good reason not to trust each other, but I assume we both want what's best for wiley. Yes. Okay, let's just leave it at that. I'm not just trying to be honest with you, I'm trying to be honest with myself. There's a realistic possibility that these violent outbursts...

outburst. One. There was only one. ...Will continue, and they're not gonna stay the same. They're gonna get worse and worse. Ugh, ooh, you sound like jason. He's not wrong. Uh, yes, he is, when it comes to you. He doesn't know you like I do. He doesn't know us. I'm scared. Come here. I know. I know. I'm scared and I'm terrified. Yeah, me, too. And I just want to make things perfectly clear that I will never give up on you. It doesn't matter how dark things get or how dismal things are. I will always be your champion. And not just because that's what you would do for me, but... ...but because I love you. I love you, and nothing will ever change that. Nothing. Okay.

[ Chuckles ] Good to know.

[ Sighs ] Thanks. Okay, I'll call you later. Good. Anna. Everything valentin said is true. Finally, she shows her face. Mother, not now. Let me guess. You've known peter was guilty this whole time and you just allowed me to rot. Can someone just get this woman out of my face before I lose my mind? Your mind isn't the only thing you're about to lose. Okay, let's go. Let's go. Let's go.

[ Grunts ] I'm sorry, maxie. No. No. Because if this was true, if peter really did all those horrible things and you knew, you would've told me. I didn't know, not until recently.

[ Sniffles ] I mean, I had my doubts, but I thought I was being paranoid and that peter had changed, like you said, but he hadn'T. When? When what? You said that you had your doubts. When? For how long?

[ Sighs ] Really, too long. Too long. I'm sorry.

You heading out? Yes, michael, it's getting a little crowd-- late. Uh, uh, thank you for inviting me. Hey, perfect timing. Come here, little guy. It was wonderful spending some time with you. You want to go over here? Just 10 more minutes, okay, then straight up to bed.

[ Chuckles ] Thank you again for thinking of me. Michael: Yeah, yeah, we'll do it again soon. You okay?

[ Voice breaking ] I'm just a little surprised. About what? Wiley just said I'm not his real mommy.

[ Knock on door ]

[ Sighs ] What happened? What happened? Did violet forget something?

[ Sighs ]

Hi, franco.

It's andy.

I need to tell you

a few things. Thank you. For? For interrupting the wedding. If you hadn't, I would've had to.

[ Sighs ] I'm shocked you abandoned peter at the end. I didn't have a choice. Anna was willing to go through with it. If she'd let maxie marry peter, she would never have been able to live with herself. While I find your devotion to that scarecrow annoying at best, this time, it worked to my advantage -- and maxie'S. At least now she'll finally be free of peter. Let's hope so. I knew last year that peter was closely associated with the company that sent the assassin. The assassin. Yes, the man that made the attempt on andre and franco's life. I stopped that attack, remember? Yes, it's amazing that you just happened to be in the O.R. At that exact moment. Luck. It wasn't luck! Oh, just stop. Can you just stop? You knew the assassin was there because you hired the assassin to be there. Maxie, I-I chose to cover that connection up because I didn't believe it, I -- for the same exact reason that you don't believe it. You can't -- you can't bear the fact that peter is guilty, and he is, because he confessed everything to valentin and valentin told me and I confronted you. You're lying. You're both lying. You're in on this together. Valentin -- no, I confronted him, and I gave him every opportunity to tell me the truth, and he didn'T. He lied, which made me realize that he will always lie, maxie. And I don't even think that that's his fault. What I'm S... the man you love, he just never existed. Okay, enough of this. Maxie, let's get out of here. I'll explain everything. Hell you will. Let -- you son of a bitch! Mac! Don't -- don't give him what he wants. No, no, no, no, no. Sam: Hey, here, sit down. Hey, hey, hey. Maxie, what's wrong? The baby. Okay, okay. Just breathe. I'm gonna feel around your belly, okay? Just breathe. Shh, shh, shh, shh. It's okay. Shh, just breathe. Just breathe. I'm gonna check your pulse.

[ Breathing heavily ] It's okay. Shh, shh, shh, shh.
