(This still needs extensive editing)thank you for coming back. Sounded urgent. It is. So... we've reconsidered your offer. Oh, I'm sorry, but that offer ended the moment I walked out that door. It's too late now. I couldn't agree more. Peter.
[ Peter chuckles ] Oh, this is brilliant. What are you going to do, valentin? You're going to shoot me in front of anna devane -- the one person in port charles who doesn't want me dead? I wouldn't be so sure about that.
[ Knocking ] Hello. How's the patient? Uh, better. Finally feeling like I can breathe again. Breathing's good -- for you and the baby.
[ Chuckles ] Your idea was inspired, by the way. It was, of course. I also told peter that if he keeps bothering you, it will be dangerous for the pregnancy. Add to that a few nights here on bed rest and that should convince him that my condition is serious. Laying the groundwork for him to believe us when we tell him the baby died. Is it weird to fist bump on that? It is a little, but maybe we should do it anyway.
[ Laughter ] Curtis, are you here? Jordan. Hi. Hi. This place looks so good.
[ Sighs ] Yeah. You look so good. So do you. Hello, I am dr. Robinson. Taggert: Don't look now, it's not just your next patient. It's your ex.
[ Knocking ] Come in. Hey. Willow? Hi. Hi. I'm -- you know, I'm happy to ignore the mattress in the room, but, uh, there's a mattress in the room. It came in this weirdly small box. I should have brought it upstairs immediately, but I was curious, so I opened it. I thought it would sort of, I don't know, unfold gradually. But it didn't? No, it exploded in the middle of my living room. Yeah. So, as usual, your timing is perfect. Do you think you could help me lug it upstairs? Uh, yeah. Yeah, of course. I'd be happy to help. Thank you so much. Yeah. Alright. Uh... ready? Yep. Okay. Here we go. Ready?
[ Exhales sharply ]
[ Sighs ] Um... you know, before we do this... willow, there's something important I need to tell you. Chase, wait up. I know that didn't go as planned. Look. Dinner's over, okay? We all survived. Can't we just leave it at that? Right. Are you okay? Huh? Are you okay? Yeah, I'm just tired. And hot. Are you -- are you hot? No. You look pale, a little clammy. My stomach's kind of hurting, too. Why don't you sit down?
[ Sighs ] You don't think I got food poisoning at the restaurant, do you? What if we all got it? That'd suck, wouldn't it? Valentin's not going to do anything to you. I am.
[ Taser crackling, peter groans ]
So... this is the new club. Can't believe I haven't been here yet. What do you think of the new name? The savoy. I like it. Yeah. This place looks so beautiful, curtis. Oh. Congratulations. Thank you. So, uh, you holding out on me? Your plumbing skills?
[ Laughs ] Yeah, if I had any plumbing skills at all, I probably wouldn't be soaking wet. Well... I think you, uh, missed a couple spots.
[ Sighs ] Jordan... what are you doing? When you stopped by the other night, I could tell that you wanted to talk to me about something. But then taggert was there, so you left. So I was just hoping that you would tell me now... since we're alone. I figured you would need a guard or something with you while you were out. I've got this guy keeping tabs on me till the trial. So are you sick or what? Nah. Just had a follow-up on my gunshot wound, making sure there's nothing that might cause me grief. Cause grief. Hmm. Kind of like the way your death did to me and Trina. Should I apologize again? No. It's forgiven.
[ Sighs ] But I'm more than happy to get you another doctor if it would make you feel a little bit more comfortable. You got a problem drawing my blood? No. And if I remember correctly, neither one of us had a problem with that. Um... hey, c-can we put this down? Uh, of course. Right. Yeah. Alright.
[ Sighs ] Michael, what's going on? Um...
[ Chuckles ] Well, uh, sasha and I, we -- we broke up. I guess that's not really the -- the right way to put it, considering we were never really fully, you know, back together. But you were trying. Yeah. And we decided, you know, mutually that, um... there wasn't a future for us. I'M...so sorry. Yeah. Yeah, me too, you know? I mean, sasha, she's a -- she's A... she's an amazing person. And we really tried to make it work, you know? Tried to find what we used to have. You just couldn'T. No. So we moved on. And now sasha, she's a -- she's a good friend and I'm hoping I can -- I can be that for her, too. Wow. I think that's awesome that you guys were able to figure that out. Yeah, it's good to know where we stand. Is there something else? Yeah. Okay. Um... last night, I almost kissed you. I remember. And I completely respect that we are in different places in our lives. But I'd be leaving something major out if I didn't tell you that a part of the reason I realized things weren't going to work with sasha is, uh... ...is because of you. And what started out as a friendship, taking care of wiley, it's -- it's still both those things, but, uh... it turned into more for me. And a lot more. I'd -- I'd be a coward if I didn't tell you how I felt. And this -- I want you to know this is not me, you know, putting pressure on you. I'm not asking you to choose between me or chase. It's -- it's not that at all. You know, we can -- we can go on and act like this conversation -- michael, stop. Just stop. Listen, I want to take your, uh, temperature. You got a thermometer back here or something? I want to make sure you're not coming down with something. Hey, I just -- I need some sleep, okay? Really. I'm -- I'm exhausted. Alright. Alright. I can take a hint. Thank god.
[ Chuckles ] Alright, listen, you promise to call me if this gets any worse? Mm-hmm. You promise? I promise. Drink water. I got it. Drink a lot of water. I got it. Feel better, okay? Thanks.
[ Door closes ] I would much rather have you arrested and tried for your crimes, but... sadly, you're so skilled at covering your tracks that that just isn't an option. Brings us to this situation. You need to know my priority is to keep maxie and the baby safe.
[ Strained ] I would never hurt maxie.
[ Groans ] Oh, I heard that stuff from faison all the time. You're turning into your father. This obsession with maxie, y-you're mistaking it for love. It isn'T. It isn'T. God, this didn't have to happen. But it did, and it's on me -- my refusal to see who you really are. And it's my responsibility to fix this. No. I'm not going to let you do that. Have you thought about what happens next? Yeah, it's all I think about. What's the plan after you give birth? Who are you going to give the baby to? Actually, I think I have the perfect solution.
I will send this off to the lab, then. Great. So, how are you otherwise? What? Like in general? Yeah, in general. I'm just trying to get some semblance of my life back. I'm meeting with my lawyer, seeing Trina. Did she tell you that she got accepted to pcu? Can you believe it? Yeah, I believe that she got in. But the fact that she's old enough to even go to college? No. I... it is a trip for sure.
[ Sighs ] I'm really grateful for the job you did with her, and I'm so proud of her. Yeah, me too. I guess we did something right. Um... so how is it with jordan? Beats hell out of lockup. Yeah, I bet. Kind of reminds me of old times, you know -- two of us working all those hours together on the job. Well, I'm glad it's working out for you. Maybe for me. Not so sure about curtis. When we decided to separate, you asked me to figure things out, what was next, not just for me, but for us in general. And you were right. I was due for a change. So I got out of the pi business and I -- I bought this place. I got to tell you, I'm excited about -- about prepping it for opening day. I can tell. I had finally found my stride, you know? And I needed to see you just [Sighs] To see what was up between us. But then taggert was there. Yeah. We could have gone somewhere else, curtis, had a private conversation. You didn't have to leave. Yeah, I did. Look, I'm sorry. Don't be sorry. I'm sorry I interrupted you, but I needed you to stop so I could say this... while I had the courage to say it. From the moment we slept together in the nursery... that day changed everything for me. For me, too. And I haven't had the guts to say it until now, to even admit it to myself until now... I do not want to let go of what we have, michael. I don't want to be friends and co-parents. I want us to be together... for real. I'm sorry, it sounded like you said spinelli. I did. You want to stash your baby with spinelli? Yes. The father of your other child, georgie. Correct. It's the perfect solution. H-hello, maxie. You're not getting one over on the mean girl in high school. Hey! I was the mean girl in high school. This is peter! And if you haven't noticed, his creepy faison obsessive button has been pushed. Oh, I've noticed. He's locked in on you like a heat-seeking missile. So the idea that he's just going to buy the fact that the baby is -- he'll buy it 'cause we're selling it! Of course we'll sell it! We'll sell it for all it's worth! But peter will still be suspicious. We need to make sure this baby is nearly unfindable. That's not a word. And spinelli, someone you love and trust, will be the first place peter will look. Come up with someone else. You're being really bossy right now. I'll wait. Did you see what you wanted to see? Yes. I did, too. I knew what he was capable of and I still let him manipulate me. But at the end of the day, it does not matter, anna. How can you say that? Because he's the reason that we're here. He chose to kill those people. Peter: [ Strained ] No. He takes no responsibility. He lies. He lies. He lies. He's trapping and manipulating maxie, and he's proclaiming his love for her. No, anna... shut up! Anna, we're family. I know you're not okay with this. I know you. I can see so clearly now how you played us. No, anna. Listen. You know wt? "Poor me" act. I'm really not. What I am interested in is the fact that the man you held prisoner for five years is now sitting in a jail cell for something he didn't do. I have to make that right. Ready? Let's do this. You don't understand me. Yeah, we understand everything perfectly.
[ Doorbell rings ]
[ Groans ] Are you expecting someone? No. Don't answer it. I have to. I have to. The lights are on. My car's in the driveway. They know I'm here.
What's wrongwith robin? Where do I start?
[ Scoffs ] She and patrick are amazing parents. She's your cousin! Yeah. So?
So if spinelli is the first place peter looks, robin will be the second. And besides -- do you really want your child to be raised in that sanctimonious household? Hey! Robin is like a sister to me. Okay, yes. She can be a little bit judgy sometimes. Thank you. But I love her and patrick and they would be great to louise. No! No, it will not work. It cannot be someone that you know.
[ Sighs ] You know? It's too bad you came late to this party because you could have just impregnated yourself and then no one would know. Wow. The gloves are off. We were never on. First of all, I miss rocco, who i think of as ben, every day. And even though you're being a snarky bitch right now, I don't want you to go through that. Not only will you spend the rest of your life missing your child, you'll spend it pulling out your hair if peter gets his hands on her. So can we put on our thinking caps? Okay? Fine. Fine!
[ Sighs ] And I'm sorry. I know. Finn. Hi. I'm sorry to bother you. Okay. Violet really needs bella. Bella? Her stuffed pig. Oh, the stuffed pig. Yes, no, I know. I'm so sorry. I -- I meant to bring her to the metro court because we decided that it was a bad idea for you to come get it, right? Mm-hmm. Maybe it wasn't such a bad idea. Can we talk? What a joke. Anna lecturing me about obsession. There you are, drooling all over her the whole time. You've been obsessed with that woman your entire adult life. You should be thanking me. Yeah? Why? Because I finally gave you your in, valentin. Anna's turning to you. She's leaning on you now. She couldn't even stand the sight of you before. And now look at you -- you're her little sidekick. So tell me, how long is it going to be before you bed her, huh? Oh, and by the way, when you do, you'll know you owe it all to me. How are you? Okay. You? Yeah. Okay. I had a strange night. You did? Um... I feel like -- oh, yes. Ah. Ah. Bella. Yes, bella. Strange how? Like with a patient or something? Family strange. Oh. I guess you don't read the paper. No. I've been a bit distracted. Ah. Yeah, peter's rag put us -- and by us, I mean jackie, chase, myself, our whole story -- on the front page. Oh, wow. Why? What happened? Chase is my son. I'm sorry I woke you. No, that's okay. What's going on? I was... wondering if I can move back in. Here? With me? I want to pick up where we left off before everything went wrong. Is that possible? The thing with chase -- you don't -- you don't have to explain it. It might be more for me than for you. What he and sasha did, misguided as it was... was still a sacrifice. A noble sacrifice. Chase was trying to help because he is a good person. And I wanted...
[ Sighs ] I guess I wanted to make it okay for him. But the truth is...
i had changed in the time that chase and I were apart. My heart had changed. The way I saw you had changed. And there was no going back. Because when I'm alone and... daydreaming about the future, I don't see chase's face. I see yours. It's you, michael. You're the one. So we were going over renault's case file. Curtis showed up, and he seemed...surprised. Well, yeah, it makes sense. You're living in what until recently was his home with, until recently, was his wife. They're still married. You know exactly what I mean. That had to be extremely difficult for curtis. It did seem like he had something he wanted to say, but he backed off.
[ Chuckles ] Because you were there. Don't forget, jordan and curtis split up because she lied to him about you. So what? That makes it my fault? No, it doesn't make it your fault. It just makes it messy. Look... I don't want to do anything to get in the way of them patching things up. But it does make me wonder. Wonder what? Would you feel the same? I have no idea what you're talking about.
[ Chuckles ] I know you cheated on me, portia. And I'm pretty sure it was with curtis. Baby, if you think there is something going on between me and taggert, you're wrong. It is just all work between us. And that's the problem. Look, you and taggert, you share a closeness, you share an easy intimacy that I know has nothing to do with sex or romance. Just...two people with the same goal with their eyes on the same prize. What's wrong with that? Nothing. But there's a stark contrast, okay? You don't have to keep secrets from taggert. There's nothing the two of you can't share with each other. And I started to realize that that was never going to happen with us. I mean, yeah, we love each other, but that level of trust and ease? I don't think that I've ever felt that with you. What are you saying?
[ Sighs ] I'm saying... ...I think it's time that we got a divorce.
You knew about me and curtis? I suspected. Y-- but for how long? I mean, since the divorce? The curtis piece just kicked in recently. I -- remember back then when I took that last trip when I was still undercover? Yeah. Yeah, um... right before we ended things. You were different when I got back. I knew in my heart you had been with someone else. Marcus, I... I don't blame you. Fact is, I wasn't a good husband. Even when i was with you, I was...absent. I never got the best part of you, you know? I left it open for you to look elsewhere for what you needed. You never said anything. Put the blame on you for our split? No, no, no, no, no, no, no. It was my fault. Marcus, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, too. Please do not let my work come between us. We have everything else. Everything else isn't enough. Haven't we proven that? Our marriage can't withstand the secrets that you're forced to keep. Or the ones that you choose to keep because you think you're protecting me. I love you, and that will never change. But your trust in me has.
[ Sighs ] It's gone, and I don't see another way around that. Look, if we're being perfectly honest, you never trusted me either, because if you did, you wouldn't have shut me out all those times. Do you think I liked doing that? No, I think you hated it. But I also think that you'll do it again the first time something big pops up, and it will. And you'll keep whatever it is from me and it will torture both of us. So you see, for both of our sakes... it's best if we just end it. Wow, that's quite a situation. It's been interesting. How do you feel? Chase is your son. I should get this back to violet. Okay. Yeah, I want her to have it before she goes to bed. Sure. Okay. Somebody lose a wallet?
[ Sighs ] Never mind. Listen to you. You really are faison's son. Go to hell. Climbing in my head, finding what I love, weaponizing it. You believe in a lie, peter. You think you're the good guy? You think you're going to get away with it? Not this time. You're going to pay the price. Oh, you think you've won. But you're about to learn you're going to lose in a very big way. And when it all falls down, anna's going to blame you, valentin, because I have an insurance policy. This changes everything, but it doesn't have to change anything. Does that -- does that make sense? I mean [Chuckles] We have all the time in the world. But could it change everything if we wanted it to? Or do you want to take it slow? I just want to be with you... in whatever way works for you. You didn't answer the question. No, I -- I don't want to take it slow, but, uh, I can. I think we've both proved that. But now we don't need to anymore. We don'T.
I didn't leave you for curtis. He took off when I finally told him that I was married. We ran back into each other when I transferred here from mercy. How did you figure out it was him? Well, uh, I am trained to notice these things. Well, we are, um, friends now. And I would never come between him and jordan. I'm actually rooting for them. I want them to make it. So do I. I adored being married to you. And it kills me to know that you weren't happy. I'm sorry, jordan. But I... don'T. Even if I disagree, you see our problems as insurmountable. And since I'm not going to be letting go of my career... I would never ask you to do that. I truly believed by switching jobs and changing my life around that it would be the fix that we needed. But when I saw taggert at our house... it just hit me that it... [ Sighs ] That it's not you. [ Voice breaking ] It's me. Well, maybe love's not as hard as it seems and maybe this is how it's meant to be so we took a walk just to talk about it you asked to hold my hand and I forgot how to breathe I tried to say that we should wait but you kept walking anyway you smiled, and that said everything to me love, this love came easy you asked to hold my hand and I forgot how to breathe I tried to say that we should wait but you kept walking anyway you smiled, and that said everything to me love, this love came easy love will get hard now and then but I'll remind you when you asked to hold my hand I forgot how to breathe I tried to say that we should wait but you kept walking anyway you smiled, and that said everything I have been dreaming of this moment. So have I. What about wiley? I can still be wiley's mother from here. It's just a few minutes away. And besides, it'll be good for him to have a mother who's truly settled and in love. Well, I can't argue with that. Welcome home, willow.
[ Sighs ] Is he here? No, he's not. Well... he'll probably be missing that. You should let him know. I will. I will. Um... so, um, we've been working on a plan to stop peter, to -- to just prevent him from doing any more harm. That's good. Um... I'm sure that's as specific as you're going to get. Oh... you look pretty. Finn. Hmm? Um, just tell violet that I miss her and I'm sorry about bella. I didn't mean to disappoint. Don't worry. She's getting used to it. Okay.
[ Clears throat ] Here's the deal.
[ Inhales sharply ] When louise is born, I will take her. Oh, that's perfect. Are you insane? Peter will see right through that. Would you let me finish? I will make sure she goes to a good place, somewhere far away from here and with someone that knows this is not an adoption, that at some point they'll have to give the baby back. But most importantly, someone no one in port charles knows. Where? Who? How do you even find that kind of person? I don't know yet, but I'll figure it out. And when I do... I won't tell you. You can't know, maxie. You can'T. That's the only way that you can answer peter honestly if he suspects the baby survived. Okay, and what about you? You will know, and peter will strangle the truth out of you if he has to. Peter, anna and I are good at making things disappear and having them stay gone as long as we need them to. You are going where someone's not gonna find you.
[ Items clattering ] All clear? It was Finn. I covered. Here. He found this. Must have fallen out while he was struggling to come down here. Did you explain our plans to him? I did. He had some objections. Did you tell him what he could do with his objections?
[ Muffled ] You're making a fatal mistake. You're making a fatal mistake. What? Think your plan is foolproof? It's not.
There never was a chance for us, was there? No. [ Sighs ] Just too many nights alone, you know? And even when you were there... I wasn'T. But at least I had Trina. And -- and I just want you to know I'm so happy that you're back in her life. For now. Despite our history, despite everything, I truly just want what's best for you. I want you to be happy. Back at you, kid. So... I guess this is goodbye. I wish it wasn'T. But... I don't see any other way.
It's just that part of me that always stays the same jordan, wait. Can we have one more dance before we go our separate ways?
I ain't gonna lie
but what I know is that I'm always gonna try
don't let this pass you by
I know I messed up, but our love is worth a try
[ Crying ]
I know it's hard for you, but give me one more chance if peter even suspects that louise is alive, he's going to know that you were in on it. What are you going to do if he comes after you? Do you trust me? It shocks me to say this, but, yes, I do. Peter will never know where your baby is. I will never tell him. Okay, I don't -- I don't think you're quite grasping the point I'm trying to make. Peter will kill you if he has to. Then the secret dies with me. So, what did we forget then? That you're not the only one that can make plans. What does that mean? It means that if you go through with this, someone you care about... will die.
[ Ringing ] Hey, it's, uh, detective chase. Uh, I'm not feeling so hot. I'm going to have to use a sick day tomorrow. Yeah. Alright.
[ Sighs ]
[ Shivers ]
[ Sighs ] Well, we're still compatible. Even more so, if that's possible.
[ Chuckles ] What? You know, I almost didn't buy this mattress. I went back and forth and then finally decided to go for it, and I'm so glad that I did because this has just become my most favorite mattress of all time. Yeah, mine too.
