Ned goes to the station and demands Taggert give him any news. There isn't, so Ned harrasses him. Alexis tries to calm him down. Nikolas arrives and says he has an idea. He wants to go to th eraves and ask for information (HUH? Last time we saw him, he was helping an injured Lucky and listening to Sorel tell his men to kill Zander and Emily! What happened to that?).

He gets a call from someone and rushes out, Hannah following. Taggert is told by Monica that his mom collapsed in the airport with heart problems. Taggert goes in to see her. She awakens and smiles at him.
Nikolas and Alexis visit Helena, who has been named Nikolas' trustee (in charge of his fortune). They protest. Nikolas says he'll challenge her status and if she does anything to interfere with his getting his money or helping Emily, she'll pay. Helena agrees that he can have access to his money but says they should spend time together. No way, he says, and storms out. Helena and Alexis trade barbs before Alexis leaves.
Luke and Roy disguise themselves as Englishmen in London. Roy thinks it's a bad plan for them to dress up in costume and get Luke's money out of the bank. They argue. Roy worries that he'll go back to prison. Luke phones and finds out that Helena has returned to PC. Roy argues some more against Luke going to the bank.

They are interrupted by Alexis, who says the cops are planning to get Carly's deposition tomorrow, so they must get married tonight.
