(This still needs extensive editing)

[ Footsteps approaching ] Oh, I've read that one, too.

[ Sighs ] And what did you think? Well, whoever wrote it comes down pretty hard on jason, so... oh, just like you did with jake yesterday? I apologized to jake. And hopefully, he feels better now that you got to take him to see his dad. No one feels better, cameron. Not jake, not me -- and I'm pretty sure not you. And I think we need to talk about this. There is nothing to talk about. I will watch what I say around jake. But jason killed franco, and now it's time for him to pay. Thanks for meeting me here. Oh, like I'd want to do this with anyone else. Have you heard anything? Not yet. You? Oh, I can't believe this day is finally here. What happens next will change the rest of our lives.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

[ Footsteps approaching ] Jackie: [ Sighs ] You must be pleased with yourself. That editorial may be unsigned, but it has your fingerprints all over it.

The invader is independent and always will be. Right. What you call "independent," I call "indefensible." I want no part of you or your so-called journalism. Yes, I'm well aware. Lucky for me, you get no say in the matter.

[ Footsteps approaching ] Finn. Chase. How are you? I'm okay. You? Hanging in there. I'm glad I ran into you. Uh, violet's been missing you. She's been asking a lot about when she can see her uncle chase. I -- I miss violet, too. She's been going through a lot of upheAval lately, and I've just been trying to keep things as normal as I can, especially now that we're living here. Wait, what? You're not at anna's anymore? No. [ Sighs ] No, anna and I... split up. What are you doing here? Oh, I had to see you before the arraignment.

[ Chuckles ] Come to give me a pep talk, huh? No. I've come to ask for your help.

[ Groaning ]

[ Grunts ] Huh.

[ Inhales sharply ] Dr. Obrecht: Good morning. Oh.

Guten morg-- morning. I trust you slept well? Uh, I-I-I slept like a potato pancake. However, I, uh... I-I didn't mean to hang around, uh... a-are you sorry you did? Are you? I asked you first.

Nein. Me nein, too.

[ Both chuckle ]

The moonbeam that fell

from above like a tear

the starlight everyone told me

would disappear

why, when everyone said

it was true... ah! Lenny and I danced to that song... yeah? ...At our wedding.

[ Chuckles ] Bet you were quite a couple. Uh, we still are. Why don't you show me? Here? Why not? Now? [ Laughs ] Yeah! Come on.

[ Both laugh ] You are crazy, you know that?

[ Chuckles ] Well, I don't know, 'cause I don't know who I am. Oh!

[ Laughs ]

The songbird that captured

my heart and is gone do I look ridiculous?

[ Laughter ] No. You look... happy. Yeah? How about a dip? I was born ready. Alright.

[ Gasps ]

Why, when you were

so beautiful, too one more. One more. Whoo! Yeah!

[ Laughs ]

[ Slow music plays ]

[ Carly sighs, footsteps approach ] Did you see this trash? It should be peter sitting in front of a judge, not you. Okay, just -- diane, you're gonna get him out on bail, right? It's gonna happen? Easy. Easy. It's not gonna happen.

 I'll make it up to jake. Okay? But I won't apologize for knowing that jason killed franco. You were there, mom. You saw him standing beside franco's body. And now there's a witness saying that they saw him ditching a gun. I know what the witness claims they saw, but -- "claims"? Like -- what? They made it up? We don't have all the facts. And until we do, we shouldn't jump -- I don't have time for this. Cameron!

[ Door opens ] I'll see you later, okay? And as for jason, I hope he gets what he deserves.

[ Door slams shut ] I'm glad Ava let me open the gallery this morning. Keeps me from checking my e-mail every two seconds.

[ Chuckles ] Hey, have you heard from cameron? Uh, no. He's meeting us here. Why? No reason. I'm just wondering.

[ Cellphones chime ] Is it...? It's from pcu. Omg. It's happening. Okay. Here goes nothing. I got in. Yeah, you did! Okay. Your turn, your turn! No, you open it. Absolutely not. This is your moment. But what if it's a bad moment? Okay, well, there's only one way to find out.

[ Sighs ] "Dear Trina, on behalf of port charles university, congratulations on your admittance"! You did it! I did it! Hey. It's not like anna and i stopped loving each other.

[ Sighs ] Would've been easier if we had. But it was just, the harder we tried... we just couldn't make it work. I'm sorry, Finn. I know what it's like to lose the woman you love, and I wouldn't wish that on anybody. Not even me? No. Not even you. Jackie templeton, you signed a two-year contract with the invader -- no one forced you. And I'm not letting you out of it. Yeah, your lawyers have made that crystal clear. You know where I stand with all this -- peter killed franco, and he framed jason for it. Look. Nobody wants to lock up henrik more than I do, but I can't just drop the charges without proof. I'm not asking you to do that. I need you to buy me some time, get jason out on bail. Oh, anna... no, come on. You know it's possible. Not only do the police have two witnesses and the murder weapon... yeah. ...But we have jason morgan, with a rap sheet longer than a didgeridoo. Now, if I don't argue for remand without bail, I set myself up for charges of bias. Well, if you were the ada, yes. But your reputation stands for something. It's got weight and integrity.

[ Sighs, groans ] Come on, robert. If anyone can do this, you can. Flattery will get you everywhere. I know. Please. I really need jason out on bail. And -- and it's not just because peter framed him. It's this whole situation with cyrus and the five families. I mean, that's a powder keg waiting to blow. And the only stabilizing force in all of this, like it or not, is jason. Ooh! [ Laughs ] I haven't danced like that in years. You know what? If lenny doesn't take you to the firehouse dance, I will. You like country and western? Yee-haw! Then don't waste your time on me. Take nina.

[ Dramatic music plays ] Oh. [ Laughs ] No, no, no. Uh, why not? Yeah, why not? Because...I-I don't even know if I'm gonna still be here after elijah takes me on the insider tour. There's really no other reason for me to stay. Mm. I can think of at least one. And his dimples... are something else. Why would you give up before you let diane fight to get you released? Why? Look, carly. Of course I am going to fight for bail. But the fact of the matter is, the police have an eyewitness who says she saw jason get rid of the gun.

[ Scoffs ] And lo and behold, when they go to search, there's the gun, right where she says it is. It's gladys! Are you kidding me?! Can't you discredit her? Can't you prove that she's a grifter that comes in town and takes bribes? It's obvious that cyrus has paid her off. Don't get your legal procedures confused. What does that mean? This is an arraignment, not a trial. And if this were a trial, I would happily rip gladys to shreds on the stand. But ultimately, jason is going to go free because ultimately, there's no case. But right here today, now, carly, you're not going to get that instant gratification that you so crave. He's got a record of alleged criminal activity dating back to 1996. He's got his own room in the pcpd hall of records. Okay, every single one of those charges were dropped except for one. You know that -- it doesn't -- it doesn't matter. They're going to paint him, carly, as a flight risk with a long history of criminal behavior. So I could pull out every legal trick I know, throw it all at that judge, and the likelihood is he's not gonna go for any of it. So, carly, you have to prepare yourself -- barring a miracle, jason is going to remain in custody until the trial.

Ever accused you of being subtle, have they?

[ Laughs ] Aren't you due at the clinic right about now? Alright, alright. I can take a hint. Uh, but one last thing. The firehouse chili is to die for. Okay, really? I'm just saying.

[ Chuckles ] Uh, I'm sorry. You know phyllis -- sometimes I think she -- she wants everybody around her to be as happy as she is. Yeah, I get it. Just for the record, though, I'm not looking. Yeah, me neither. So, now that we got that straightened out, you want a cup of coffee? Yeah. Only if I can get it myself. Oh, if you insist.

[ Sighs ] I got to admit, though... ...I do love chili. So do I.

[ Both laughing ] I can't believe we both got in. This is amazing. Yes, but as much as I'd love to celebrate and plan our freshman year together, we both know that you're going to southern coastal university. Well, I haven't heard anything yet. Oh, come on! It took you forever to settle on your top choice, and now that you have, they'd be idiots not to accept you. You think? I know.

[ Both laugh ] Hey. So, any word yet? Oh, nothing major. Just that joss and i both got into pcu! Shut up! Really?! College, here I come!

[ Laughs ] Oh, I'm so happy for you guys. The thought of peter leading the charge against jason when franco's blood is on his hands...? Ugh! It boggles the mind. Yeah. Yes, yes, I know. I was kind of excited to see morgan -- look him in the eye when the judge denied bail. And now? Well, now the, uh, mustard is off the hot dog because everything you told me about peter, it's just not... as satisfying. Because it would be wrong. Peter is the one who needs to be sent to pentonville to rot. And he will. That schleim will suffer for taking franco from us. I will make sure of it. Um... do you want to talk about it? Our plans for peter? No, um.... about... what happened... here. And here. Oh. And, uh, over there. Ha! Maybe we should, uh, figure out what that means. Having a tough time of it, huh? When we moved out of anna's, her life got upended. I will never let that happen again.

[ Sighing ] It's been rough. On all of you. I'm not looking for your sympathy, by the way. God knows I don't deserve that. But maybe you could just carve out a little bit of time to see violet. Yeah. Yeah, of course. Yeah? You know I love that little girl. Thank you. I should, uh... I was gonna go see elizabeth. Oh. Yeah, just -- you tell her, uh... tell her I'm -- I'm thinking about her. I will. I mean, does peter really think this is gonna work?

[ Laughs ] Are you kidding me? Let's just hope judge pierce doesn't read the tabloids.

[ Sighs ] Excuse me.

[ Clears throat ] Da, a word.

[ Door closes ] I, uh, take it you decided to trust anna? Yeah, well, it's not like I had a choice. But I will say -- so far, so good. And let me be clear -- no matter what happens, I will be damned if you spend one more day in here than necessary. Carly, what are you -- what are you gonna do? Whatever I have to.

[ Dramatic music plays ]

You know, you really should think about telling your story to the invader. Oh, my god. Well, jason morgan's been arrested -- like he's been arrested 100 times before, and damn near every time, he walked. Do you want him to get away with what he did to franco? Leave now before you get thrown out on your ass. I mean, that should make a great front-page story for one of your rivals. This case against jason morgan will be tried in the court of public opinion. Elizabeth: Okay, jason knew that the tumor was back. He was convinced that franco was a threat. In jason's mind, killing franco was protecting me and the boys. Okay, is that what was going through your mind when you saw jason kneeling next to franco? Is that what shaped your perspective? I mean, is it possible that you saw what you expected to see? And then maybe, if you think about it, if -- if you go back there again, you will see that jason was just trying to help franco, not hurt him. Congratulations. Thanks. Joss still hasn't heard from southern coastal university. You'll get in. That's what I said!

[ Sighs ] Well, you know how competitive it is. And there must be a thousand other girls just like me. There's no one like you. Yeah. Anyway, we got to celebrate in some way, right? Yeah, definitely. But first I have to call my mom. So, how's jake doing? He's, uh... still angry with me, but I know he'll come around eventually. I hope you know that I didn't come by yesterday to cause problems. No, I know. I was just there as a friend. Joss, I understand. And you were right. I mean, jake's a little kid. I-I need to think more about his feelings. But you have to understand, when you started defending jason, I-I-I -- cameron. Think about it. Really think. Jason's hated franco for forever, right? Okay, so why, after all that time, would jason -- a professional killer -- wait to do it in the sloppiest way possible? It just doesn't make sense. Joss, I understand that you love the guy. He's your brother's father. And I am so sad for jake. I really am. But the sooner people like him and people like you realize that jason killed franco in cold blood, the better. Is this seat taken? No. It's all yours. Okay, yes, we are still on for the insider tour. Uh, yeah, comfortable shoes and a good attitude. I think I can do that. Great. I-I look forward to it.

[ Laughs ] You know, I'm all for you writing for nixon falls, but why is eli so interested? Well, maybe he's proud of his town, he just wants to show it off. R-right. Well, before you got here, you know, he tried to buy property on the cheap. So why would he, you know, want all this attention? Mm. Because it would raise real estate prices. You're right. Ah, you see that? Always on the lookout for enemies.

[ Chuckles ] Out of curiosity... what makes you think you know me so well?

[ Dramatic music plays ] Just stick with the plan, keep working with anna, and don't even think about going rogue. Okay, this was meant to influence the judge. So, if peter can play dirty, so can I.

[ Dramatic music plays ] Don't react.

[ Chuckles ] What's he doing in here? Oh, haven't you heard? Peter's the voice of the people. Not on my watch, he's not. Press corps. I didn't expect to see you here. Oh? I was certain I'd see you.

[ Scoffs ] Jason is extremely important to robin. I'm here on her behalf. Bailiff: All rise. Court is now in session. The honorable judge pierce presiding. Judge pierce: Be seated. Alright. I'm ready to hear arguments for and against bail. Mr. District attorney? What says the state?

[ Clears throat ]

 Hi. Hi. Morning. Morning. That's so weird. I was just on my way to G.H. To find you. You were? Oh. Come in, please. Okay, I figured you probably saw the cover of the invader. Yeah. Yeah. I did. Are you okay? I...

[ Keys clatter ] ...Don't know how I am. Has something happened since we last talked? I took jake to see jason in lockup. He's positive that his dad couldn't have killed franco. And cameron is convinced more than ever that he did. Okay. What about you? What do you think? Cameron: It blows my mind. What does? I was hurt and our friend dev was killed in an attack where jason was the target. How many people have gotten hurt because of him? That lifestyle catches up to you. The same way it caught up to Sonny. So maybe it's time you stop defending jason and realize the type of person he actually is.

[ Chuckling ] Okay. Look. I get that you are grieving and that you feel the need to blame someone or you'll explode -- you're not listening to me. I blame jason because he killed franco! He did it! Okay? W-why can't you understand this?! Open your eyes! Okay, that's it! No more "poor cam, he's grieving, so he gets to say whatever stupid, hateful things he wants." No more! Part of me is so hurt and angry and disappointed that I-I don't even want to deal with it. I don't blame you, honey. I want to stick it in a box, bury it in the ground, and never open it again. But that's the mistake that Finn made. He ran away. He built this huge wall to keep us out. And I'm not gonna do that. Especially 'cause it's not just my family. It's dad's family, too. Are you saying you're willing to try and get past this? I'm not making any promises. I'd never ask for them. But, yeah. I think I am. It was...a need. An itch. Ehh, I don't know about an -- an itch. I think it's, uh, you know, the usual suspects, all of the things -- anger and grief... loneliness. Who are you calling lonely? In any case... well, it won't happen again. Unless... you -- you want to...? Well, I... can think of worse things. You flatter me. Well, no, no. Uh, no. I-I-I would be in. Sometime. You? Sometime. Chop, chop! Whoa! It's time to go. Oh! Go where? You want to be at the hearing, ja? No, not after we found out about peter. All the more reason to be there. For franco's sake, we must see that justice is done. Hm? Come.

[ Groans ] You're right. I'm not an expert on you. But I saw how protective you were of -- of phyllis and -- and lenny. Didn't you step in when a thug was trying to rob them? Mm-hmm. Yeah, but normal people, other people, they would just turn and run away, but not you. And in that vein, I don't need protection from elijah. I can take care of myself.

[ Door opens ] Phyllis: Oh. I got all the way to the clinic and realized I left my I.D.

[ Both chuckle ]

[ Sighs ] Go ahead, Mike. Mm?

[ Romantic music plays ] Show the lady how it's done. Oh, phyllis.

Clouds come in you know, it's -- it's kind of hard to say no to phyllis.

[ Sighing ] Yeah. You can say that again. It's kind of hard to say no to phyllis. You're funny.

[ Chuckles ] Um... well, I mean, you know, I mean... might as well, right?

We should be free

as the rain that drips

from the leaves of a tree I mean, look, uh, we -- we don't want to embarrass ourselves at the dance, so... we might as well practice.

...Stay the same if you insist.

Walking in the rain

hold my hand,

I'll show you the way

we have no trouble

on this rainy, rainy day

let's stay together in this rainy kind of weather

today robert: Uh, your honor, we would like to save ms. Miller the time and trouble of requesting bail for mr. Morgan. It's, uh -- it's absolutely no trouble at all. The state has no objection to bail. Mr. Morgan has been a part of the port charles community for the better part of his life. His business is here. His children are here. We don't see him as a flight risk. Your honor, in light of the da's sound and sensible attitude, we would like to request that mr. Morgan be released immediately. We will post whatever bond the court deems necessary. Court is in recess while I make my decision.[ Gavel bangs ] All rise.

My first priority is to make sure that dad's okay. Mm. I need him to know that as -- as far as I'm concerned, he's always gonna be my father. That's how I look at him. That is how I feel about him. And nothing is ever gonna change that. Of course. As far as you and Finn... I really don't know where to start. Maybe the best way for all of us to heal is to do it as a family. A flawed family, but still. It wasn't always like this, harry. There was love and trust.

[ Sighs ] See, that's what makes this so hard. I-I have to believe we can get back there again. But it has to be a group effort. Me, you... hamilton, and even gregory. We all have to put in the work. Maybe you're right. Maybe the only way to do this is together.

[ Sonny and nina laugh ] N

] Oh.

[ Laughs ] Mm? You're good at this. Are you surprised?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I kind of am, because... you always seem so serious. But when you dance, a -- a whole other side of you comes out. Maybe I was a dancer in my past life. Yeah, I doubt that. Yeah, me too. You know what? Um... I, uh... I keep thinking about the dream, uh... you know, that I have. The -- I told you about that, right? The faceless blonde? Yeah, I mean, I thought she was you when you walked through the door, but how can that be if we -- if we n-never met? Right. Right? But I just wonder if I'll ever see that face.

Walking in weather

only if we're together

things will never

stay the same

walking in the rain

hold my hand,

I'll show you the -- hey. What did you say to robert? Well, I asked him to buy us some time. I didn't know what he was gonna do until he actually did it. Oh, wow. Well, he must really hate peter. Uh, I think he wants justice. Well, we all do. Mm, all of us except peter. Well, do you think the judge is gonna buy it? I have no idea, carly. I don't know. Okay, game face on. Like you actually have another one. Anyway, this is good. This is more than we could've hoped for. It's not a lock. No, it's not. So, we wait. We wait.

[ Sighs ] When I got to franco's studio and jason was kneeling by his side... what if I saw what I expected to see? What do you mean? Well, I just automatically assumed that jason shot franco. But if I walked in not knowing the players, I would have thought that jason was kneeling next to franco checking his pulse. He was trying to help him. What if he was? I just can't believe that something I was so sure about a couple days ago is now up in the air. And I'm really starting to worry that I was wrong. I've got news for you, cam. You wouldn't be standing here, screaming for jason to be convicted if he hadn't saved your life! So... because he saved me, that somehow gives him a pass to kill my stepdad? He doesn't need a pass! Jason didn't kill franco, okay?! He said he didn't, and that means he didn't! So, that's it? It's just a fact. So all you're doing with this hateful behavior, besides hurting the people who love jason -- which, by the way, includes your little brother -- is helping whoever did kill franco. Because they're out there. They framed jason and they're expecting people like you to buy it. And I'll give them this -- it's working. So I'm buying into a lie. That's what I'm doing? Yes. And I hope when you finally realize you're wrong and that you're demonizing a man who's done nothing but good things for you... I really hope people can accept your apology. Judg and I understand why the state would think that mr. Morgan is not a flight risk. But that is not the only reason to deny bail. There's also the argument to hold him for community safety. This man has a record that goes back decades. He has been a person of interest in multiple murder cases. And while he is innocent until proven guilty, public feeling is running high against allowing someone to walk free who may have killed another human being. So, in light of public feeling and his record -- which is undeniable -- I am remanding mr. Morgan to pentonville to await trial. You know, grief can poison us inside. It's understandable to feel strongly one way and then... when the dust settles, to walk it back. But I keep going aro undand around, ending up in the same place. Where is that? If jason didn't kill franco... who did? You know what? What? I've been really conflicted and trying to make up my mind, but now? Now I am so glad I'm going to southern coastal. It means I'll get away from you. Wow. No, I mean it, cam. It's like you're so deep in this fantasy land I can't even talk to you anymore. And that is not a solution to your grief. And it sure as hell won't make you feel better. Trina: Everything okay in here? Yeah. I need a minute. What's goi ng onwith you two?

[ Sighs ] I don't -- I don't want to get into it. Well, i got into it. College, that is.

[ Laughs ] Yeah, I see what you did there. That's funny. And so did you. What's going on with that? Are you headed to the redwoods? Cam, you have to go. It was your dream. My mom needs me home. And I'm gonna stay home until jason pays for killing franco.

[ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone chimes ] Southern coastal university. Okay. "Thank you for your interest in southern coastal university. At this time, we'd like to offer you a spot on our... waitlist." I have to clear it with dad first. Yeah, sure. But if he's willing to go along, maybe we find a time to sit down as a family, figure out where we go from here. If anywhere. What can I do to help? Nothing. This is between me and dad. And we'll let you know what we decide.

[ Humming ]

Day hey! Oh!

[ Laughs ] Yeah! Now, that's what I'm talking about.

[ Laughs ] You two will blown 'em away at the firehouse.

[ Laughs ] Thank you for the dance. Alright, well, I mean, if you want to practice some more, you know where to reach me -- the tan-O.

[ Laughter ] Anyway, I got -- I got work to do. Okay, bye.

[ Both laughing ] You see that smile? Yeah. What about it? It's because of you. Oh, come on. I mean it. You're good for him, nina. How can you tell? I just can. Get started with the appeal -- whatever it takes. Hey, what happened? Bail was denied. Jason was remanded to pentonville, where he belongs. Enjoy your victory. I assure you it is temporary. Oh? You thought you got away with it, pinning your crimes on me. Didn't work then, and it won't work now. I don't know what you're talking about, liesl. As far as I can see, justice was served today.

[ Sighs ] Excuse me. I'm so sorry. This must be an incredibly painful time for you. I think you'll find port charles is much safer with jason morgan in prison. You know what your problem is? You've gotten away with every lie you've ever told, so you keep lying. But at the end of the day, the truth and facts will win out. And the truth is, jason is innocent. And when that's proven, your whole world's gonna come crashing down. And I cannot wait.
