Provided By SuzanneI think these days um, I only have a few minutes, okay? I know you're busy, but this couldn't wait. You said that you didn't like the way we left things? I'm hoping that you're still considering us friends, because I do. Well, there was a moment there where I thought we were onto something more. Portia... I need to be sure that you backed away from me for your own reasons and not because of my well-meaning but meddling auntie. Wait, you know that stella spoke with me? Yeah. And I-I'm sorry. She thinks it's her god-given right to stick her nose into the private lives of her loved ones. Pay no attention to what she said. It's a little late for that, because I actually agree with stella. Hi. Can I help you? I hope so. I joined the staff like 30 minutes ago, so I'm a little confused. Welcome. I'm amy driscoll. Hi. I'm austin. If you need help orienting yourself, just let me know. G.H. Is going to be a big change from pautuck. It sure is. How did you know where I'm from? Uh, rob in administration might have mentioned it.
[ Chuckling ] Right. Of course he did. I forgot how good news travels fast in a hospital. Yep. [ Chuckles ] I hope you like working here, anyway. Ha. [ Chuckles ] Yeah. Oh, I will. I'm gonna have the time of my life. Yuri, she's almost down. Just keep rocking her. Constant motion.
[ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ] Maxie, what are you doing here? We said no unscheduled visits. I saw monica at G.H., And I came right over. Okay, but there are other people who live here, like valentin and michael and willow... never mind them. We're in huge trouble. He's back in port charles!
[ Breathes sharply ] Solid!
[ Chuckles ] What's molly been feeding you? You wouldn't believe it if I told you. And I'm t-trying to keep up with you. Ah, I think I need to be like you, dr. Ashford. Look at you, man!
[ Door closes ] So, I set molly up with someone that's going to be able to walk her through the process of filing an official complaint against judge carson. Thank you, jordan. Tj: And so it begins. After years of unfairly sentencing people of color, judge carson is finally going to face true justice.
[ Door opens ] I, uh, I talked to the nurse. The doctor should be in here shortly. Thanks. You should probably hide all the syringes and the sharp objects.
[ Laughs ] Yeah, they did a sweep of the room for me. Mm-hmm. How you doing? Great. I'm still in prison, and the warden hates me. Mm. Mom? Molly called me.
[ Sighs ] A hug from my daughter will do me good. Britt: Now that I know what's coming, it makes everything -- and I mean everything -- between now and then look better. Well, what if between now and then is like, you know, 30 years or more? What if it's six months? It's still time you could have lived. It's your choice. But, you know, for what it's worth, I'd really like to still know you... six months from now.
[ Voice breaking ] I would like to know you, too.
[ Knock on door ] Come in. Hey. Is this is a bad time? No, not at all, no. What brings you by? I just wanted to see how you were doing after seeing carly and jason on the fourth.
[ Clicks tongue lightly ] Yeah, I'll have to get used to it, won't I? Hey, hey, are -- are you going to tell me or not? I just had a conversation with britt. Why? Because I had a few things to say that she needed to hear.
If you have postmenopausal
and a high risk for fracture,
now might not be the best time
to ask yourself...
'are my bones strong?'
Life is full of make or break
moments. That's why it's so important to help reduce
your risk of fracture
Only prolia is proven to help
strengthen and protect bones
with 1 shot every 6 months. Do not take prolia if you have low blood calcium,
are pregnant, are allergic
to it, or take xgeva. Serious allergic reactions like low blood pressure,
trouble breathing, throat
tightness, face, lip, or tongue swelling, rash, itching, or hives have happened.
Tell your doctor about dental
problems, as severe jaw bone problems may happen,
or new or unusual pain in your
hip, groin, or thigh,
as unusual thigh bone
fractures have occurred. Speak to your doctor before stopping, skipping, or delaying prolia,
as spine and other bone
fractures have occurred.
Prolia can cause serious side
effects, like low blood calcium, serious infections,
which could need
skin problems and severe bone,
joint, or muscle pain.
Don't wait for a break. Call your doctor now and ask how prolia can help you. Your skin isn't just skin, it's a beautiful reflection of everything you've been through. That's why dove renews your skin's ceramides and strengthens it against dryness for softer, smoother skin you can lovingly embrace. Renew the love for your skin with dove body wash. Not touching is still touching protection. Adding lysol laundry sanitizer kills 99.9% of bacteria. Detergent alone, can'T. Lysol. What it takes to protect. If you think all pads are exactly the same,...think again. This is always ultra thins reinvented with the new always triple protection system. This pad wicks gushes 50% faster... absorbs even more so you can feel dry... and, locks odors in. Re-think your pad for up to 100% leak-free and odor-free comfort... with the totally reinvented always ultra thins. This is always like never before.
From prom dresses
and new adventures
you hope the more you give
the less they'll miss.
But even if your teen was
against meningitis in the past they may be missing vaccination for meningitis B.
up to 1 in 5 survivors of
meningitis will have
long term consequences.
Now as you're thinking about
all the vaccines your teen
make sure you ask your doctor
if your teen is missing
meningitis b vaccination.
Goes to molly. Once shefigured out what was happening, she couldn't be stopped. I wanted molly to know so she could hand it off to diane and be safe around carson herself. I didn't want her to go charging in on an undercover sting. Well, you made the right call, and so did molly and tj when they came to me. Will the deputy warden face action for doing favors for judge carson? Well, he'll be investigated like carson. Investigations take time, mom. Does this deputy warden have responsibilities at pentonville? I've spoken to warden alvarez. He's starting an inquiry at pentonville. In the meantime, you and alexis will stay here at the pcpd jail. Never thought I'd be so happy bunking at the pcpd.
[ Both chuckle ] Thanks again, jordan. Stop thanking me. You took tj in when I needed him to be safe, and you took really good care of him and changed his life for the better. The best thing I've ever done. You agree with my aunt? You think jordan and i should get back together? Mm, that's not for me to say.
[ Chuckles ] You know what's best for you, just like I know what's best for me. And stella made some strong points. Oh. Did she, now? Curtis. You're barely divorced. You need time to regroup. And anything that we may have is going to be transitional. And I'm certainly not interested in a rebound relationship. But you are interested? In a relationship? Well [Scoffs] Honestly, curtis... of course I am.
[ Door closes ] Who's back here? Oh, my god. Peter. Is peter back? No, no, thank god. It's austin from pautuck. Wait, that hiker/doctor guy who helped deliver bailey?
[ Chuckling ] What's he doing back here? He got hired at G.H. That's weird. No, it's more like dangerous. Brook lynn, he was there when I gave louise to you. Oh, no, he never saw me. He was unconscious. No, we think he was unconscious. No, he was out cold. That's what a fire poker to the back of the head will do to you. Okay, what if he woke up and got a glimpse of you? A-and when he runs into you around town o-or sees you at a pediatrician appointment, it all comes back to him? And then he realizes that your baby is really my baby. And then the truth comes out, and then peter finds out, and he comes after me and louise. Hey, what happened to your wrist? Did an inmate do that to you? No, I freaked out when a guard tried to send me back to solitary and, uh, he grabbed my wrist, and crunch. Ow! Do you think it's broken? Yeah, I'm gonna go see when that doctor's --
[ Knock on door ] Hello. Ms. Alexis davis? Present and accounted for.
[ Door closes ] What are you doing here? Yeah. I mean, isn't it strange how our paths keep crossing? Before, maybe. Now not so much. I'm on staff here. Let me start that again. I'm not here to talk about carly and jason. Good. I am happy to rewind.
[ Chuckles ] Good. Um, thank you for helping me take my mind off of things the other night. Yeah, well, I didn't want to be alone, either, so... our night was... fun. It was fun. Yes.
[ Chuckles ] Yes, it was. It was fun. And -- and that's all it -- it, uh -- it has to be. Then we're on the same page. Yes, absolutely. And definitely not ready for a-a new relationship right now, so... yeah. Agreed. [ Laughs ] Yeah. So, friends? Friends, yes. Alright. Then, as your friend, I need to rewind our rewind. Um [Chuckles] You never got a chance to tell me what carly said to you on the fourth. Oh, it was -- it was nothing much, really. You seemed pretty upset. I mean, you don't have to be honest with me, but at least be honest with yourself.
[ Chuckles ] Okay. Um, well, look, the marriage is not that much of a surprise, really. If you've been watching carly and jason over the years, they -- they've had a bond, and... you know, the funny thing is, I always blamed Sonny for bringing danger and violence into carly's life. But now that he's gone, I-I thought that carly would -- would walk away. And instead, she -- she doubled down with jason. I guess carly's always been drawn to danger. Are you worried about josslyn? I-I do whatever I can to keep josslyn safe. But I don't have any influence over carly's life and who she is with. I mean, marrying jason is like, uh... putting carly on a high wire without a net. I-I don't understand why you had to talk to her and hurt her more. I did it for britt's sake, to make sure she wasn't holding onto hope.
[ Sighs ] Hope? Yes, jason, that you would come back to her. Hope is cruel, and we both know that. Hell, I held out for hope that Sonny had survived the fall from that bridge long after we knew it was too late, which only made it worse when we found out he was really dead. Yeah, but this is not the same thing. It's close enough, because britt has to mourn the relationship she thinks she might have had with you, and she needs to know that it's over. She knows. Okay? I told her. You didn't need to tell her again. You don't want britt holding onto hope that you two are going to get back together. Are you hoping for the same thing?
[ Baby fussing softly ] She's just shifting. She whimpers and then puts herself back down. She's actually a really good sleeper. I hate that you know that and I don'T. You will. I'll share everything with you. Look, we have to get back to this guy austin. Look, you don't have to worry. He's already seen me with bailey. He has? Yeah. The night that you delivered, I ran into him at G.H., And he saw me holding the baby, and nothing, not a hint of recognition. I was a complete stranger to him. Are you sure? I mean, he said there was another reason he's in port charles besides his job at G.H. Well, was he making veiled threats, letting you know that he knows? Yes! Uh, no. Maybe? It's hard to tell. Because you are completely paranoid, maxie. Oh, my gosh. Everything that you hear makes you think that we're one minute away from being found out. Look, you have to stop this. It's not going to be austin who's gonna blow everything up -- it's going to be you. Pautuck to port charles, that's a -- that's a pretty good commute, huh? Detective, you seem awfully interested in my living situation. Hi. Patient here. Hi. Doctor. Doctor. Yes. Please, call me austin, though, if you don't mind, I like to keep things informal. Is it okay if I call you alexis? Okay. Great. Um, I guess you're going to examine me and not get the third degree. It's really fine with me. It's one of my favorite degrees. Oh, you're so laid back. Life just happens, right? Can't stop it. Don't want to. Alexis? Yes. Can I ask you something? Yes. I understand from your chart that you have osteoporosis and you've hurt that wrist before. Uh, dr. Portia robinson was her, um, doctor previously. Would you like for me to see if she's still Available? Oh, I... yeah, that would be great. ...Don't think that -- no problem. Thank you, alexis. Mm.
[ Door opens, closes ] What was that? I'm not some starry-eyed teenager, curtis. I already know how good we can be together. You're the one that walked away from me, not the other way around. And we both know why. Yeah. Yeah, we do. And it took a lot for us to build trust again. But we did it. I mean, here we are on our way to this nice, wonderful friendship. And then I kiss you, you pull away, and I instantly -- I instantly realize I made a mistake. But I was caught off-guard. Portia, don't you think we owe it to ourselves to see how far we can take this? We already had a relationship at the wrong time. I don't want to go through that again. Neither do I. But I never go into anything expecting to fail. Why don't we focus on the possibilities instead of focusing on the drawbacks? Not when one of the drawbacks is me losing you from my life completely. I feel like I've been given a second chance with you, and it's meant the world to me that we can actually be friends again. Maybe it even makes up for the mistakes of the past. And I can't ask for more than that. What happens if judge carson is found guilty of judicial misconduct? Shawn's sentence will be reviewed, right, and he'll be released? Well, that's the way I understand it. All of carson's cases will be reviewed. But at least she'll be suspended during the process. Well, the best-case scenario is shawn is released with time served. He still might have to serve the rest of his sentence, even if it was unfair? I pled guilty to attempted murder, tj. But you didn't shoot hayden barnes. No, I didn'T. And if it falls my way and I'm released, my first priority will be finding the bastard who did it. I hate to break it to you, jax, but you might have to cut the cord. Accept that carly will always do carly, and you cannot stop it. Yeah. Yes, I will -- I will try my best. Well, at least josslyn's not traumatized about carly marrying jason, so maybe that's -- that's a plus. Mm.
[ Knock on door ] Mother. I didn't mean to interrupt. Well, I-I will let you -- um, I'll -- I'll, uh, let you get back to whatever. Um, britt, you take care of yourself, okay?
[ Laughing ] You, too.
[ Chuckling ] Alright. I'm going to go. I'm going to go. Liesl, it's great to see you. And you, too, jasper. I did not realize you and herr jacks were intimate friends. Mother, I do not have the time.
[ Scoffs ] Then I'll get to the point. I'm here to apologize. For what? For encouraging you to follow your heart and giving jason morgan the chance to stomp all over it. Carly: Are you not ready to let britt go? I mean, 'cause this is happening, right? I mean, this is real. Yes, I know what has to be done, okay? I just hate what it's doing to britt. I understand that, okay? But -- but... when you only give the explanation that "this is how it has to be," you leave britt without answers. And the unknown is always more painful than the known, so I just -- well, you just -- you just lied. I-I only lied about the "being in love" part.
[ Sighs ] Maybe this will help britt move on and let go, because this is hard for everyone, jason. I'm sorry that britt's hurt. I'm sorry that you're hurt. Okay, we know why we're in this situation.
[ Scoffs ] We chose this. Britt didn'T. Nothing we say can make it better, so just -- just leave her alone. Okay. What can I du with less asthma? With dupixent, I can du more....beginners' yoga. Namaste... ...surprise parties. Aww, you guys. Dupixent helps prevent asthma attacks... ...for 3!... ...So I can du more of the things I love. Dupixent is not for sudden breathing problems. It's an add-on-treatment for specific types of moderate-to-severe asthma that can improve lung function for better breathing in as little as two weeks. And can reduce, or even eliminate, oral steroids. And here's something important. Dupixent can cause serious allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis. Get help right away if you have rash, shortness of breath, chest pain, tingling or numbness in your limbs. Tell your doctor if you have a parasitic infection, and don't change or stop your asthma treatments, including steroids, without talking to your doctor. Are you ready to du more with less asthma? Just ask your asthma specialist about dupixent. We don't use just any wipe, we use dawn disinfecting wipes. They're tough enough to cut through greasy messes, yet gentle enough to clean the surfaces that matter most. All while killing 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. Get the grease fighting power of dawn in a disinfecting wipe. We're eating and drinking foods and beverages that are very acidic. It can soften the enamel. Pronamel repair, what it's doing is driving more minerals deep into the enamel surface, that's going to help actively repair. Pronamel is taking it to another level. You're okay with settling? I seriously doubt that you've settled for anything in your life. I'm trying to protect something good. Yeah, our friendship is good, but you're letting your fears shut you off from something that could be better.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Um, this is dr. Robinson. I-I'll be right there. I have a patient in the E.R. Portia. Look, just...please. Think about what I said. Do you want to regret not taking the chance? Because...I don'T. You know, it's strange being here with the two of you like this, mom, shawn -- I mean dad. Hey, look, whatever makes you feel comfortable. I know thomas is still your father. You're my father, too. I'm sorry I kept the truth a secret for so many years. Hey, what's done is done, right? No need going backwards. We can't change anything, anyway. I learned that being inside. I have to focus on who I am and what kind of person I want to be going forward. That is mighty enlightened of you. I'm still hung up on the fact that you shouldn't be in prison in the first place. True, I didn't shoot hayden, but... I did a lot of other things. You know, working with Sonny corinthos calls for a lot of moral compromises. I was loyal to the man, to the organization. Who knows? I might have never gotten out if I hadn't gone to prison. You've always been a good man, shawn. Mother, I don't blame you for anything. I let jason in all on my own. And he didn't want me. So now I'm moving on. With jasper jacks?
[ Sighs ] I admit, he's quite the handsome specimen -- very easy on the eyes, as they say -- but drowning your sorrows in bed isn't going to make you feel better about losing jason. So I've discovered. Uh, excuse me. I'm looking for my nephew, dr. Tj ashford. Could you tell me what floor he's working on? Oh, hi. Sure thing. Dr. Ashford didn't come in today. It says he had a family emergency. Okay, pilar, thank you. And just tell the girls that they can just play at home today, and I'll take them to the park tomorrow with josslyn. Yeah, hopefully she'll go. Okay. Uh, thank you. Alright. Bye. Hi. Hi. Can I help you? I hope so. I just started here, and they told me that my office was near the "corintos" center. Oh, corinthos? Corinthos. It's on the fourth floor. You know it. Yes, I hope so. Michael's my son. Co-- that corinthos. Corinthos. Um...okay. I take it you like our coffee.
[ Chuckles ] That's, uh -- that's very generous of you. Thank you for putting it that way. Uh, yes, I do. I like your coffee. Um, I'm really sorry. I think that your family is -- they give a lot of money to this hospital. I hope I didn't offend you in any way. Oh, it takes a lot more than that to bother me. So you're new here? Yes, uh, I am. And apparently, I have some really big shoes to fill, because dr. Jones was beloved and totally well-respected. And I'm just hopeful that I can spend a little time with him... mm. ...You know, after he gets settled in his new position. Lucas jones is my brother. Really? Is everyone in this town related to everyone else? After he was knocked out by the woman who took maxie's baby, he and maxie were brought back here to general hospital. I would think that would make dr. Austin a hero in everybody's eyes. Maybe on the surface, but something with him just doesn't add up. Dante, I -- you think so, too, don't you? Uh, uh, you know, I'm reserving judgment until he's cleared as a person of interest in the kidnapping. How can he be a person of interest if he was unconscious during the kidnapping? We're exploring every avenue. Any leads? The kidnapper dropped a pin at the location where it seems that they handed the baby off to an accomplice. But the problem is, since that point, the baby has pretty much vanished into thin air. Poor maxie. She must be frantic without her baby. You feeling any better? Sorry I went spinning out like that. You're under a ton of stress. Yeah, and I will be until peter is caught. At least I know louise is safe and happy and healthy here. Yeah, um, about that. Monica's already worried. She'd flip if she heard you calling her that. Yeah, but monica's not here. Yeah, but the more that you call her louise in private, the more likely you are to do it in public. You already did it in front of valentin, and he definitely noticed. I think it's just safer if we call her bailey from now on. Of course. Yeah, you're right. Okay, um, since I'm here, could I see bailey? Sorry, but no.
what do you mean I can't see my baby? I'm not trying to keep you from your baby, if that's what you're thinking. I would never do that, maxie. But we made a deal that you could see your daughter at deception on workdays. Monica's not even here. Neither is valentin. Okay, but yuri is, and so is the staff. And any one of them could tell them that you were here again with bailey. I don't even know why this is a big deal! Monica -- I know! I know! She's worried. She wants to discuss this with felicia and mac. No, no. The last thing I need is my parents getting worked up over this. Do you want everyone hovering over you, determined to make you face the reality that your daughter is missing? But she's not! I hate lying like this.
[ Sighs ]
[ Voice breaking ] Anna said to me she wasn't going to stop until louise was found. What am I supposed to say to that? She's a skilled investigator, brook lynn. I am terrified she is going to stumble on the truth. You're the only person I can be real with. And we're not even supposed to be friends. Do you want to just call it quits? Just tell everybody that -- that bailey is louise and take your daughter home? Hey. Oh. I, um, just went to the hospital to see tj. They said he had a family emergency. And now I see what it was. Shawn butler. Good to see you, man. It's good to be seen. I appreciate what you tried to do for me. And, tj, my man. Uncle. So, what's going on here? Is this, like, a family reunion? Nobody told me. I'll let, uh, jordan explain it to you. I think I have to go. Officer hendricks will take you to your cell. I think I'd like to go with him, if that's okay. Yeah. It's okay. We are in the process of bringing a biased judge in front of the review board. And this affects shawn because...? Well, said biased judge gave shawn the maximum sentence, so we're hoping that we can alter that. As you can see, I'm -- I'm really busy right now, so... okay. Well, I'll leave you to it. But after I apologize. You slept with herr jacks? Of course you did. Of course I did?
[ Scoffs ] Why? Because I'm so pathetic, I fall in bed with the first man who looks my way? Not at all, liebchen. I meant of course jax would be attracted to you, a brilliant, accomplished, beautiful woman. Wow. Thank you. I'm sorry you're surprised to hear me say that. Perhaps I should say it more often. Mm. I didn't come to judge you. I came to comfort you. I thought jason morgan had genuine feelings for you, but I was wrong. It's not his fault -- he loves someone else. Yes, it is.
[ Breathes sharply ] Because...
[Chuckles] He'll never find a more incredible woman than my britta. Jason. Jax.
[ Elevator bell dings ] Something on your mind? Britt's been through a lot. Don't hurt her. I'm not the one that hurt britt. So, michael corinthos is your son, right? And -- and his grandmother is my new board chief, dr. Monica quartermaine, right? Yes, she is. Michael is a corinthos and a quartermaine. Yeah. Yeah. Well, if you'll excuse me... yeah, I keep putting my foot in my mouth. I get it. You're all connected. No, I -- I didn't mean it like that. Is it really necessary to have it all figured out? I think you'll do just fine. What's dr. Quartermaine really like? That was mac. Jordan's cleared the way for you and shawn to spend the night at the pcpd jail. Oh. Then what? I'll take it. Uh, it remains to be seen, but jordan's on it.
[ Knock on door ] Hello, alexis. I'm here to take a look at that wrist for you. Okay. Would you two mind excusing us? Yeah. Of course. Uh, be right outside. Yeah. Mm-hmm. Something bad? No, no, no, no, it's just, um -- it's -- it's been a day. Tough case? Um, yeah, you could say that. I'm -- I just can't decide how to move forward with treatment. So...
[Sighs] Do you want anything? You know, for what it's worth, I think jason messed up.
[ Fireworks popping ] He had a chance at a lifetime. And he didn't take it. If it were me, I would have chosen you.
[ Clears throat ] I'm sorry, what?
[ Sniffles ] Perks. I'm making a coffee run. Mm. Wanted to see if you wanted a cup or maybe if you want to tag along. Y-yeah, I-I would love to, but I-I gotta stay here with your mom. Oh, okay. So, um, I'll just pick you up a cup. Yeah, that'd be great. Okay. You just... text me what you want. Will do. Be great if we could talk about that kiss, also. Um...
it's your call. You're emotional, and -- and I don't blame you. We could call it quits if that's what you want.
[ Voice breaking ] I want nothing more than to leave here with my baby in my arms. To call her by her name. To stop the lies and be honest with my friends and family. But that can't happen, not as long as peter's still out there. He can't know where she is. Then why are you here, maxie? Why are you in this house when peter is still out there and could very well be having you followed? And by doing this halfway, you're adding to your misery. You don't get to have your daughter, but you're also not keeping her safe, either. You're right. Uh, you're right. It's, um, stupid and self-indulgent for me to keep showing up here. I have to do what's best for my little girl. And I will. Are you sure? Because from where I'm standing, it seems like you're at the end of your rope.
[ Sighs ] Almost a clean getaway. Yeah, I'm, uh -- I'm terrible at clean getaways. So I guess you want to talk about that night. Um, listen, on the fourth, I was, like, really, really, really drunk, and I set fire to a few things, and I assaulted a police officer... mm. ...And I would rather not think about it. Can we just forget that ever happened? Yes. Cool. I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page. Yes. The same page? That -- that's good. Yeah.And my mom is in the hospital with a broken wrist from a prison guard, and that's kind of all I can think about right now. Well, hey, you know, as far as your mom goes, don't worry about that. There will be an investigation.
[ Sighs ] You see, that'S... what I'm afraid of.
[ Cell door shuts ] Well, it was good while it lasted. This is only temporary. Once the investigation proves judge carson showed bias during her sentencing, they'll have to review your case. Maybe you'll get out with time served. Is that what molly thinks? She said that would be an equitable solution that the powers that be in albany might be open to.
[ Sighs ] In the meantime, how do you want to go about finding out who really shot hayden barnes? Whoa. Slow your roll, tj. As you can see, I'm not completely free. It was aunt stella who warned portia away from me. Hmm. Stella strikes again. Yeah. But this
time,she was on your side. Well, we've come a long way. Yeah, look. I-I-I'm sorry that I thought you would do something like that. I know you wouldn'T. It's just, when I found out you hadn't signed the papers, I thought I was putting two and two together. And you came up with three.
[ Sighs ] And I'm sorry I doubted your intentions. Curtis, I just want you to be happy. And if that's with portia... I really thought it was the start of something. But he must have just been lying. About what, britta? Me. [ Scoffs ] Jason said he didn't feel sorry for me. Why would he? Because I have the gene for huntington'S. The day that I found out was the day that we made love. I guess it was just pity.
[ Scoffs lightly ] Is that why you slept with jax? To prove to yourself that you were still desirable? Is that what I was doing? It is when we are at our most vulnerable when we share ourselves with someone else, yes? The idea that jason was with you for reasons other than mutual desire is -- is very painful. It could drive you into the arms of another just to prove... you're desirable. Yeah, well, that's over. Trust and vulnerability are vastly overrated. I don't want to hurt like this again. I think monica will be a fair boss. She's exactly what G.H. Needs after cyrus renault. Oh, yeah, heard about that guy. Bad news. I don't really understand. The board must have been really desperate to go to him for financial backing. And there are other influential, powerful families in this town, right? I mean, we got the cassadines and the quartermaines. They're not interested in local issues? For someone who claims to know nothing, you sure seem to know a lot.
We got to take this thing one step at a time. You know, molly's cheerful prediction aside, we don't know for certain that exposing judge carson will result in me getting released soon. Yeah, well, the system needs fixing.
[ Scoffs ] Molly and i are here for that. I'm going to do whatever it takes to bring you home, dad. I like the sound of that, son. Whatever happens, I just want you to be happy. You deserve it. Thanks. I'll work on that. And I'll sign the papers, and I'll put them in the mail asap. Well, look, as, um -- as long as things are... clear between us, there's no rush. I know you got a lot on your hands. Take care. Yeah. You, too. Now, this is going to give you more support. And I was able to rush your test results. It looks like your bone density is down. Thanks to all that lovely, vitamin-enriched prison food. Well, I'll make sure to talk to the warden personally and make sure you have proper access to your supplements. Talk to jordan, because right now, I'm headed back to the pcpd jail, and I-I don't know for how long, though. I mean, who knows w-what kind of contacts that judge and assistant warden have back in pentonville? Probably now my mom could be targeted for retaliation. Uh, you know, maybe, uh -- maybe I can help with that. You caught me. And you're not wrong. And I'm sorry. I'm being really nosy. It's just that when I found out I was interviewing here, I tried to figure out everything I could about this place -- how the place was run, the achievements, the ratings, the press. I come from a really small town. Everybody knows everybody. And here I am in the big leagues, and I just want to know what all the players are. I'd really like to succeed. I would. I think maybe the first thing I need to do is figure out how to make a better first impression. Thank you for giving me directions. I appreciate it. I have to do whatever it takes to protect my daughter from peter. I mean, lying to everyone is one thing, but it's torture, knowing she's within reach and I can't see her. And you're right about me adding to my own misery. At this rate, I'll be the one to undo everything. So what can I do?
[ Scoffs ] Nothing. I'm the one that needs to do something.
[ Voice breaking ] I think I need to leave port charles. I know you're very busy, so I'll let you get back to work. Perhaps we can have dinner this week? Yeah, I would like that. Good.
[ Door opens ] Britta... I am so very proud of you. It's only because your heart is so strong that you feel such pain.
[ Crying, sniffles ]
[ Sniffles, sighs ] My heart may be strong, but it hurts so much.
