says he has his own plan, to use her dreams to find a more effective way to lure
helena to the island. She tells
Stefan that she hasn’t been sleeping well enough to dream because she keeps
worrying about whether she can dream about Helena.
He suggests she find a boring book to make her fall asleep.
They look for one and she finds his journal from when he was a boy.
He remembers hiding it there years ago from his mother and big brother. He reminisces about his brother Stavros.
He said he was usually kind to him and Alexis, but Helena managed to ruin
most of what was good in him. Chloe
continues to read the journal. Stefan
angrily tells his man that he was supposed to remove everything that showed he
owned the house and island. The man
promises to check everything again.
goes to see Alan at his office and runs into Bobbie. She taunts Bobbie about Luke’s affair and how it could
affect Laura’s mental state. Bobbie
assures her that Laura is stronger than ever.
Helena says, “Well, the hospital will have to make that decision.
An employee who suffers from emotional instability is a substantial
risk.” Bobbie makes a crack about
the hospital getting funding from Helen, who “murdered her own son and framed
an innocent man” and calls Laura a “good, caring person”.
Helena sees Gia and asks to speak with her. She apologizes to Gia for jumping to the wrong conclusion the
other day, that she and Nikolas are only friends. Gia says it’s none of her business what they are to each
other. Nikolas comes up and starts
defending Gia again. Helena
threatens to cut off funding for the hospital.
Gia can’t believe she would do that but Nikolas assures her that Helena
would do it in a second. Still, he
isn’t going to let her tell him who to date.
Gia assures him that he can’t go out with her, anyway.
He says he wasn’t planning to.
plays soccer with Lucas and jokes around. The
ball goes over and Sorel picks it up. He greets Roy and says, “It’s been a while”.
Roy sends Lucas a little ways away to play.
Sorel asks Roy to work with him but Roy tells him to go away.
Tony finds Lucas and then goes over to chat with Roy. He tells him to keep “that thug away from my son”.
They argue about it. Bobbie
arrives and isn’t happy to hear they’ve been fighting.
Tony tells them that he never wants Roy alone with his son again and
takes Lucas away. Bobbie asks Roy
what happened. He tells her that
Sorel barely spoke to Lucas, that he wants Roy to work for him.
He assures her he won’t work for anyone that would put her or Lucas in
danger, so she accepts that promise.
visits Laura at home. Lulu is still
in North Carolina with Lesley. He
offers his sympathy about how she’s been lately.
He apologizes for pushing her away since he’s been back and says Faison
programmed him. He explains how he
knows and how Elizabeth helped him, and how he is going to go to Kevin for help.
She asks about Helena. He
says he doesn’t care what she did, he just wants it over.
She agrees. He hopes Luke
will get past it without trying to punish Nikolas’ family.
She consoles him and tells him he wasn’t “weak” for being
brainwashed by Faison. They’re
glad to be back together. She
pleads with him to make amends with Luke and says they love each other, too.
visits and they tell the girls about the divorce. Felicia admits it’s her fault but Mac says it’s his
decision, too. They plan to stay
friends. Despite the girls’
pleas, they say they will live apart, but they will still be a family.
Maxie asks if he is filing for custody again. Mac says they belong with their mom but he will be there all
the time. Georgie wonders if she
made them mad but they assure her it’s not her fault.
After Mac leaves, Felicia has another discussion with Maxie about the
future and how things will get better. Felicia
asks Maxie if she wants to go out for ice cream, but she declines, so Felicia
goes out with Georgie. Maxie packs

She says she had decided to leave town but now she’s not sure because
of Lucky. He tells her about his
divorce. He thinks Laura should
Lucky runs into Nikolas in the hallways of GH. Nikolas warns Lucky that Helena is “prowling the halls”. He keeps Lucky company while he waits for his appointment with Kevin. Nikolas tells him about the runin with her and Gia. Lucky says that Nikolas really controls Helena; she does everything she can to please him, in her way. He suggests that Nikolas should pretend Helena is winning him over and to use that as a weapon. He is repelled by the idea. Lucky goes to his appointment and Nikolas goes to get lunch. Helena snoops and finds out about Lucky’s meetings with Kevin.
