(This still needs extensive editing)

Okay, we're gonna have to talk about the plan to get you out of here. You know we could be having this conversation right now in a safe house. You know why? Why? Because if I wanted to get out of here, carly, I would get out of here. Then why didn't you? Because I don't want to make a bad situation worse. Computer trouble again, dr. Westbourne? The best thing you can do for me is just live your life, okay? And try to get along with your brothers and keep doing your art. And you hold on to the fact that I didn't do this. I would never hurt anyone if it meant hurting you. Laura: Elizabeth? Hi. Hey. Is everything all right? Jax, please don't toy with my emotions. I'm not. I've been laying the groundwork with michael. I'm confident that, if you come home, that there is a path for you to not only see wiley, but to have a real relationship with him. You seem lighter, more hopeful. Of course I am. I got anna to give maxie the necessary push she needed to be more...hospitable to me. Got or coerced? The point is, my plan is working, valentin. You took your best shot, and you failed, because, well, let's be honest, I'm smarter than you are, and now I'm getting everything I want. Oh, come on!

[ Sighs ] Michael: I think I got something better. You brought dinner. Yeah, I figured you guys would want something other than just hospital food. Michael, that is so thoughtful. So, uh, how's chase? He woke up for a second, but he's still so weak. Almost immediately lost consciousness again. And you're scared. I'm a lot of things. Most of all, I feel guilty. Why? Chase is so invested in the idea that we're getting back together, and I can't tell him that we're not. But it just... feels so wrong to lie to him.

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Door closes ] Willow just stepped away for a minute, but I'm sure she's gonna be right back. I know this all seems pretty scary. Hell, I'm scared, too. But we're not gonna lose you. Peter's ruined so much of my life already. He doesn't get to take one more thing from me. Especially not you. Finn? Yeah, I'm here. What did you just say? Okay, you clearly want something, so spill. What can I do for you? You've got it all wrong, maxie. It's not about what you can do for me. It's about what we can do for each other. Oh, yay. I love riddles. It's not a riddle, okay? Or a game.

[ Sighs ] It's as real as it gets.


Hoppla. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Well. Well, well, well. It's been a while. Has it? Yes, I've been calling you, and all I'm getting is crickets. I've been busy. Really? Too busy to keep me company while I was babysitting? I decided against darkening nurse webber's doorstep. Despite our shared love for franco, she would not appreciate me spending time with her sons. Yeah, that's probably best. But, you know, I started thinking that maybe you were avoiding me. Okay, you just hopped the train from cryptic-ville to crazy town. What is this? "I'll show you mine if you show me yours"? Maxie -- no, I get that you have never been pregnant. But this is weird by any standards. I'm not pregnant. I'm sorry. What, now? You get it? Okay, brook lynn, what the hell is going on? What is that? The answer to both of our problems. I was just talking to myself about what a scare you gave us. It's okay. Take it easy. What happened? Your body was close to shutting down. But we administered a new treatment, and that got you out of the woods. Thanks. Yeah, no sweat. So what does that mean? Am I better now? Am I cured? Look, you have to remember that this is an emergency, so you have to prioritize.

[ Sighs ] Prioritize. Yeah. You have to ask yourself what's more important -- feeling you were honest or supporting chase by giving him something to hope for? And, look, hope is a very powerful incentive, willow. You're right. And when you put it like that, there's no question. Chase needs me, and I have to be there for him. But just so we're clear, I am in love with you, michael. Nothing that's happened in this hospital has changed that. I know. And I'm not going anywhere. Look, what you're doing for chase... well, I was gonna say it makes me love you even more, but I don't even think that's possible. Is this real? It's as real as the bullet I took for you. Jax, please, don't joke. I'm not joking. You can be a part of wiley's life... if that's still what you want. Are you kidding? Of course that's what I want. But I guess I just don't understand something. Everyone was so furious at me after what happened at the quartermaines'. What's changed? I had a heart-to-heart with michael. I made him see how important this would be not only for you, but also for wiley. Thank you, jax. That was very sweet of you. But I can't imagine that went over well with carly. It appears that I've been locked out of the records regarding the pharmaceutical that was developed in-house. Oh. And why would you be trying to access those files? Well, because I found similarities between tobadryl and a substance found in a patient's bloodstream earlier. Obviously, it's a different compound, but I was hoping the records would help me develop a treatment for an overdose like that in the future. Well, see, the thing is, dr. Westbourne, now that the board has put the kibosh on the program, it's best that we keep our intellectual property under wraps. Wouldn't you agree? Of course. Oh, and a little birdie told me you've been spending a lot of time in jason morgan's room. Don't forget you're the chief. Wouldn't want anyone thinking you care more about him than your other patients. We talked about this. You're not going back to pentonville, jason. Now, look, my plan is... oh, your plan -- what, it's a lock? That's not fair. Nothing is a lock, okay?

[ Sighs ] But it has been carefully set up with minimal risk for you. Okay, I know that you need to believe in your plan. But the more people that are involved, the bigger the chance something goes wrong. I've been avoiding jason because I don't know what to say to him. It's like I'm no longer protected by my absolute conviction that he's guilty. Do you want my opinion? Always. Okay, from the first moment I heard about this, it didn't make any sense to me. You remember when ryan chamberlain kidnapped carly? Oh, who could forget? Well, during that time, jason and I were working together on something. And what I remember the most about him is how level-headed he remained through the entire insane ordeal. He is not a person who panics. He doesn't react out of the heat of the moment. So it just didn't sit well with me. And it still doesn'T. I mean, the idea that he got so worked up that he shot franco in his own art studio...

[ Scoffs lightly ] Mm. I mean, look, did he hate franco? Yes. Is he capable of killing someone? Absolutely. But... in the way that it happened? I know. I know, and I just keep going back to the idea that maybe I saw what I expected to see and not what was actually right in front of me. I mean, maybe -- maybe jason was kneeling next to franco because he was helping him and not because he had hurt him. But then there's this witness. And their testimony could be wrong, too. Like you said, people think they see something, and it ends up being very different from reality. Yeah. Elizabeth, the truth will come out. It always does. Okay. Thank you. You're welcome. I have to get back to my patients. Okay, take care, sweetie. It's so good to see you. You too. Hi, sis.

 If maxie accepts you back into her life, knowing who you are and what you've done, then you and I have no further trouble. Already happening. She's starting to realize that these allegations against me are just one big misunderstanding. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Why do you keep saying that? No. Because this doesn't make any sense. You were in the hospital the same night I was. Britt would have noticed if you weren't pregnant. Yeah, thank you for that, by the way. For what? Well, I may have pocketed your sonogram and passed it off as my own.

[ Gasps ] I said, "thank you"! Oh! -Wha-- -[ Breathes sharply ] Okay, can -- can you please start from the beginning? It's a long story. Elevator pitch. Okay. Ever since I got back to port charles, I have been trying to find a way to make things right with my family. Yeah, because you completely screwed them over by giving valentin control of elq. I did not "give" valent-- yes, yes, yes. Because of all of that. I thought your father forgave you. Oh, he said he did, but who knows? I mean, these are quartermaines we're talking about. Elq's absolutely everything to my family, and I knew I had to get it back. And that's when it hit me. I slept with valentin, so why not pretend to be knocked up with his kid and use it to my advantage? How? Well, valentin is a lot of things, but a crappy father he is not. I knew he'd want to have a relationship with the child, and if I threatened to keep that from him... you could use it in exchange for control of elq. Except he called my bluff and now won't give me the shares until after the baby's born. And that is where you come in. I'm glad we bumped into each other. Mm. Well, that makes one of us.

[ Laughs ] I just wanted to let you know that my mother is settling very nicely at her new facility. That's wonderful. Congratulations. You won. Which begs the question. Why not use this as a turning point? I'm not sure I follow. Well, you say you've gotten everything you claimed to have wanted. You've got your mother, you've got your freedom, you got this hospital, not to mention jason in prison. Now would be the time, cyrus. Go legitimate. You say I have everything I want. That's just not true, laura. What else is there? You. I know you hate this, but I've looked at the situation we're in, and I can't do this alone. You're not alone. When you're in pentonville, I am. I'm alone. Carly, this goes to trial, and that's gonna be the end of it. You just want me to be patient? Yes. They have nothing to convict me. It is different this time. You don't get it. The business, it's like a runaway bus, and there's no one driving it. Sonny is gone, and I'm not qualified. That leaves you. We can't wait for diane. We can'T. We have to move now. And, no, you cannot go back to pentonville because cyrus' men will kill you. I'm telling you that I can handle it. Sonny said he could handle it. Okay? So I'm asking you to do something that's really hard -- trust me, and please do it my way. Since you've been in prison, I know more about this than you do. And even if I'm wrong, do this for me. Please. Jason. I would do anything for you. We have a problem. Carly wasn't too thrilled that I went to see michael. Yeah, that translates to "carly was furious." Yes, but it doesn't matter because she doesn't get a say. Oh, carly always gets a say. No, legally, I mean. Wiley's not her son. He's michael and willow'S. So it's their call. And? And what? What was their call? Jax, what exactly did michael say? So this might not be the best time to bring this up, but I want to be completely transparent with you. Okay. So -- so jax, he approached me the other day, and he asked me to consider giving nina another chance at a relationship with wiley. And what did you tell him? Well, I told him I'd talk to you before I made any decisions. Am I open to it? Uh... are you? Finn: The toxin causing the underlying damage is still in your system. What about the treatment you gave me? A temporary solution. Not a cure. What are you saying, Finn? I'm not getting out of here? How's my favorite patient? You say that to all your patients. Yes, she does. I'm gonna let nurse webber check your vitals. Then I'll touch base in a second. I'll be right back, okay? Don't worry. Apparently, I'm not going anywhere.

[ Chuckles ] Finn. Finn. We need to talk. I don't want to talk right now. I need to know -- what was in that vial you gave chase?

I want morethan for wiley to have both his grandmothers in his life. Even if they're at each other's throats? Look, I know my mom. I can go to her and ask her if she can get along with nina for wiley's sake, and she will. And I'm not worried about that. Then it's nina. Yeah, look, I can't have what happened last time happen again. How do know she has her head on straight? That's fair. Actually, jax went to go see her. He did? Yeah. And I've always trusted jax's judgment. And if he can tell me that she's in a good place, I mean, that goes a long way with me. Michael told me that he would be open to allowing you to visit with wiley. Open? Yes, it's better than closed, right? So he didn't actually promise anything? Formally, no, but I know michael. I've known him since he was a little boy, and he's -- he's very fair. And if I work on him a little bit, I guarantee you he will come around. Thank you, jax. I know where your heart is. And I appreciate, I truly appreciate, you going to michael and speaking on my behalf. But what you're describing sounds more like a vague, open-ended conversation. No. It definitely doesn't sound like a promise. And, jax, I can't set myself up for another crushing blow. I won't be able to take it. I've been locked out of all records pertaining to cyrus' drug. Why? Probably for the same reason cyrus just commented on the amount of attention I'm giving jason. He must already assume we're working together. Which makes you a potential target. Lucky me. Britt, seriously, first thing you need to do is make sure that cyrus can't use anyone that you care about against you. That's assuming there's anyone I care about. Well, what about your mom? Is it perverse that there's a small part of me that kind of wants to see a liesl/cyrus showdown? Yeah. Okay. I'll handle it. Okay. Hey. Wait, wait. This doesn't change anything, does it? You're still gonna help me get jason out of here? No, carly. She won'T. Maxie will come full circle and realize that i am what's best for her and our baby. Am I supposed to be happy for you? No. You're supposed to stop focusing on my family and start paying attention to your own. I suggest you get your head out of your arsch. I don't think that requires any translation. If you believe I was avoiding you because of our one night together, you are sorely mistaken. Well, then why don't you prove it to me and have a cocktail with me? Scott. Liesl. You know, I like this. I really do. This is great. The two of you have lost so much over the last few years. It's really wonderful to see that you've become such good friends. You listen to me, you murdering son of a bitch! You killed my son, and you're gonna pay for it. Do you understand that? Yeah, I don't understand how any of this has anything to do with me. Are you or are you not planning to let peter believe that your baby is dead and then stash her away somewhere? Oh, my god. How could you possibly know that? Apparently, when you were spilling your guts to nathan's grave, olivia happened to be there. She overheard everything.

[ Sighs ] Do you see where I'm going with this now? In order for your plan to succeed, you need your baby to disappear. And in order for my plan to succeed, I need a baby. And why would I care about your plan? Or valentin? Or whether or not stocks change hands at elq? Because it's why I'm so motivated to take care of your baby for you. No! No. My baby is not some prop. She's a human being. You know, why don't you go to a talent agency or try and convince someone else to let you use their baby? I can't believe how bitchy and snarky you are when -- when this is clearly your best option, just because it might do something good for me. Oh, I'm sorry... you're having some scheming problems, brook lynn. It really breaks my heart. Let me tell you about my problems. I was in the room when chase almost coded. We were losing him. And then anna showed up, and you injected whatever she gave you into his I.V., And he stabilized. I think you must have gotten mixed up. There was a lot going on. I mean, why would anna be giving me medicine? I think we should just be grateful that the protocols worked and we were able to save chase's life. Okay, I get that you don't want to talk to me about this, but you need to remember that I am part of the medical staff who is saving your son's life, and I cannot properly do my job if I don't have all the information. Elizabeth! Leave it alone.

I'm sorry. I'm just exhausted. I haven't slept, and I know that's not an excuse. It's been a trying couple of days for both of us, for everyone. And if you just give me a moment to exhale, I will bring you up to speed on the new treatment. I'll go check chase's vitals. Doctor. Dr. Zapson. Uh... do you have a minute? You know, I should beat the hell out of you, but you know what? I'm gonna let the courts deal with you for killing my son. -Now get out of here! -Scotty, scotty, scotty! I don't know who could have put such an idea into your head, but it's just not true. So why don't we chalk this up to a little misunderstanding, yeah? There's my ride. Be good, now. I hate that rodent! With the fire of a thousand blazing suns. What? Nothing. What? Did you like that? I've seen worse. If you want to have a relationship with me, be someone I can have a relationship with. Have you ever considered, laura, that you're putting the cart before the horse? How about instead of lecturing me on how awful I am, we get to know each other? Who knows? Perhaps your good influence will change me. I just love when people talk for me. Don't you? Mm-hmm. Carly, you told me you want to do this your way, and I told you I'm gonna do that. But she's not risking her career or her life just to get me out of this hospital. Jason, I know you're concerned about my safety -- I don't want you risking anything for me. Okay, here's the deal.

I'm asking. Okay? I'm asking. Carly. Because cyrus is gonna destroy port charles, and jason is the only one who can stop him. And if jason goes back to pentonville, cyrus' men will kill him. So I'm asking you to help me. Britt, you don't need to do this. Please help me. You don't need to do this. Excuse you. This is between carly and me. I know it's difficult for you to accept help from other people, but this isn't your call to make, okay? I'm in. Can you even imagine how lost and betrayed I feel? I loved peter. I believed in him, and he was lying to me the entire time. And now I just keep asking myself, "how could I fall for it? How could I not see it?" I could -- I could blame anna, and I did blame her. But it's not her fault, because when it came to peter, I dove in headfirst and I didn't stop to check the water. Everyone I trust told me to be careful, to slow down, to remember why peter came to port charles in the first place, but I refused to listen. Why, do you think? Because I couldn't bear to face what that meant, that I was really alone, back grieving for nathan, and I couldn't face that. So, instead, I clung to peter like he was a life raft, and the thing that I thought was keeping me afloat was really dragging me down. And if it were just me, brook lynn, that would be okay because I could handle it. But now I am pregnant with this baby that I love with all of my heart, and her father is a monster. So no matter how much it hurts or how hard it is for me... ...there is no way that peter will get his hands on this baby -- ever.

[ Elevator bell dings ] There are no easy answers when it comes to nina. But we are wiley's parents, and it's on us to decide this together, okay? Michael: Together. That sounds good. I should get back to chase. Okay. Do you want to take this with you? Thank you. I couldn't help but overhear. Is it true? Are you reconsidering letting nina into wiley's life? So you won't come home? For an empty promise? No. It's not empty. But it's not full, jax, and you know that. I'm just trying to make things right. I know you are, but you can'T. Can't you see that? When michael seriously decides that I can be part of wiley's life, you tell him to give me a call. But until then, I can't go back there. Are you ever coming home?

[ Monitor beeping ] How you feeling? My whole body feels numb, but I guess that's better than having a seizure. That's good. Still cracking jokes. Progress. You should mark that down in your little tablet. Don't do that. Hmm? Don't write me off yet. I'm not writing you off. I'm just thinking about all the time I wasted... ...and all the things I let come between us. Well, we're here now, aren't we? Yeah. We're here now. To peter august getting what he deserves. And much, much more.

[ Cellphone rings ] Britta, what's wrong? How did you know something was wrong? You don't call me otherwise. Well, I don't have a lot of time, mother. See? I knew it. Are you in trouble? Hard to say, but you might be. So I need you to stay low for a few days and away from your hotel room. Is there anyone you could stay with? I think that could be arranged. I thought this pit stop to visit phyllis was gonna be just that -- a pit stop, but... I'm finding out that the longer I stay away from port charles, the easier it is to forget all the pain that I endured there. Out of sight, out of mind. But some things are a little harder to forget than others. What about all the wonderful things? I mean, don't they count for anything at all? Of course they count. They count a lot. I-I don't know any other way to describe this, jax. I'm happy here. Forgive me for not understanding this, but what is so compelling or life-altering about nixon falls that makes you want to stay? If I have reconsidered my position on nina, it's none of your business. Okay, look, michael, you have every reason to resent me, but you're wrong. I do have a stake in the game because not only is nina my friend, but I'm a part of wiley's family. You're gonna have to face it -- we're all connected. Thanks to brook lynn's baby. You know, I... I'm doing my best to string peter along, but my plan is getting staler by the day. And he is pushing harder all the time. Wow. I got it in the abstract, but... now I really get it for real. How freaked out you are. How you're prepared to do anything for your baby. And I'm telling you, maxie, you don't need to look any further than me. Okay? Valentin actually thinks we're having a baby, and if I sell it, and you know I will, he will think that your baby is his. And if there's one person on the face of the earth who is equipped to keep that baby from peter, it's valentin. It's the safest place for your little girl to be. No. No? That's it? No. Brook lynn, I'm sorry. No, you don't really care about me or my baby. You just want to save your stupid stocks. Well, can't it be both things? You know, this is why lulu really didn't like you. You are just all about yourself. And you're not? Well, I used to be. 100%. But something changes when you're a parent, brook lynn, and you are not a parent. If I never trusted you before, why, when it is more important than anything, would I trust you now? Because I'm the best option you got. You're smart enough to know it.

I think we're at a stalemate. Not for long. The tide is turning in port charles, battle lines are being drawn. Pretty soon there won't be any room left on the sidelines.

[ Elevator bell dings ] So it's best that you choose a side, sister dear, lest one be chosen for you. She's right, you know. What? This time you're the one who needs help, and you hate it, and that's why you're giving me so much pushback. Okay, none of that matters. We are moving ahead with your plan. Okay? Whether it's a good idea or not, we're gonna find out, but we're doing it. It's gonna work, jason. It better. I hope I won't be too much of a burden. Oh, no. You were quite a nice roommate over the holidays. Yes? Yes. And I have to admit, it's been rather lonely for me. It's been rather lonely for me, too. Oh. Oh. After you.

You just walk away, walk away

walk away I need you up on 10 to assist dr. Jones. But I'm assigned to harrison chase right now. Not anymore. Dr. Finn requested you be transferred. You're awake. I'm awake. And I was just leaving.

[ Door closes ]

[ Sighs ] I see how it is. You choose the one moment I'm not in the room to open your eyes, huh? Don't worry. If I have anything to say about it, I'll have a whole lifetime of waking up next to you. You know, I guess it doesn't matter what's keeping you here, as long as you're happy. I am. Good. Because that's all I ever wanted for you. You might not believe that. I do, jax. Well, good, because if anyone deserves happiness, it's you. You make me sound like some kind of saint. I'm not that. I'm far from it. I'm the answer to your prayers, maxie. Sorry it's not in the package you wanted. You are not my savior. You know what? You brought up lulu. Let's talk about her. Let's not. She despises me, okay? I was a bitch to her. She was a bitch to me. But if we presented this to lulu and she knew just how much it would protect your baby, what do you think she would tell you to do? Knowing she hates my guts? Huh? She would tell me to get over myself and make the best choice for my child.

[ Cellphone rings ] Hello? Hey, it's me. Hi, peter. I did some research on those live-in nurses. I'm happy to send over some names. I appreciate that, but I'm already on it. Are you sure? Yeah. Yeah, I think I found someone that can help me. I'll -- I'll tell you about it later. Bye.

[ Sighs ] Okay. Alright, if we do this, we play by my rules. I'm trusting you with my child, so nothing can go wrong. Understood? Completely.
