Dillon is pouring orange juice at the Q house. Edward reminisces about Lila singing when she was younger as he hears Brooke sing outside on the terrace. Both agree that Brooke has a great voice. Dillon heads outside and makes another plea for Brooke to sing. He argues that it would be a waste of a great gift if she did not use her talent. To his pleased surprise, she agrees.
The Cassadine Prince is talking with Mary at Wyndermere. Nikolas shows his frustration at his stubborn lack of memory. At this point, he tells Mary, he is seriously considering giving up trying to remember his past. He wants to get away from all the expectations of those who loved Nikolas. This suits Mary just fine, because it dovetails nicely with her plan to isolate him in a foreign country where only she can reach him. Alcazar and Faith arrive with a job for Nikolas.
At GH that morning, Carly finds Sam up and around and not doing a good job of faking problems in her pregnancy. She warns Sam about Ric finding out. Carly is puzzled; why wont Sam stay quiet and do what shes told since Jason and Sonny have promised to do everything they can for Sam, delaying and then clearing her charges. She cautions Sam against talking to Ric. Sam is nervous, shes afraid that if her case comes under scrutiny she will be sent to South Carolina and prison immediately. Ric appears and confirms that Sam is not going anywhere.
At the Q house, Heather is tending Lilas roses and doesnt hear Edward; she is momentarily scared by his arrival. They sit on a bench and Edward tells Heather that he feels hes been getting signs from Lila all morning. Heather tells him that all the things hes seeing and hearing are a living testament to Lilas presence here on earth, Lilas scent or Brooklyns song, or Lilas flowers. She also tells Edward she sees vulnerability in his eyes.
Tracy arrives: shes on to Heather, and tells her that she heard her going through Lilas things. Heather is wearing Lilas bonnet. Edward protests to Tracy that all he is doing is getting some fresh air; Tracy snaps that fresh air is well and good he just needs to get some somewhere where Heather is not. Heather stands and asks Tracy why shes upset. After all there is nothing inappropriate going on. Tracy goes on that Heather is courting Edward and his money, and that the two of them plan to build a place to tryst right there in the rose garden. Heather hauls off and slaps Tracy sharply.
L+B is not making beautiful music this morning. Georgie is trying her best to sing to a tape, but singing is not one of her talents. Sage hears the racket and cuts Georgie down for even thinking of trying to sing to impress Dillon.
On the terrace at the Qs Brooke admits to Dillon that singing at Lilas memorial made her realize how much she wanted to sing and that not singing to spite Lois was not her smartest move. They bond talking about Lila and Lois; Brooke lets Dillon read her latest incomplete lyric. It inspires him and he grabs her and they head for the studio.

Over at the hospital, Ric tells Sam he will do everything he can to keep her in the hospital and away from prison time. Sam is understandably skeptical; just why does Ric want to do this now, when just a few hours prior he was doing his best to extradite Sam? Ric advised Sam he doesnt want her pregnancy to be at risk. He believes Sams child deserves a better start in life than being born in prison. Carly heads him out of the room and says she doesnt buy this act for one second. She knows the only reason he has suddenly decided to care about Sam has to do with his need to ruin Sonnys life. She asks him why he is pretending to care about what happens to Sams child. Ric admits that he still thinks Sonny has to pay for his life and crimes. Carly tells him that hes just angry that Sonny will not acknowledge or connect with Ric as a brother. Ric repeats that he is concerned for the child. Carly reiterates that the child is Sonnys responsibility not Ric's.
Brooke, Dillon, Sage and Georgie are in the studio. Sage tells Georgie she has a rotten voice, and makes fun of her amazing talent. Georgie responds by telling Sage that her voice is too ordinary and that the only reason anybody watches her is because she makes her body the centerpiece. She also called Sage a witch. Lois arrives and announces that she has cut a demo for a girl band contest, using Brookes voice for all four voices. They like the sound and Brooke likes Lois plan.
Tracy rises in the rose garden and asks Edward to make Heather apologize to her. Heather apologizes to Edward and Edward accuses Tracy of having no clue about what is going on.

Tracy advances on Heather and accuses her of being a money hungry piece of trash, wanting all the trappings of the rich and preying on Edward. Heather says, What if you are exactly right?
Faith wants a decision in a hurry about whether Nikolas and Mary will help her leave town. She doesnt have much faith in the prince and the pauper, and Alcazar and Faith leave; Alcazar asks Nikolas to contact him when she has made up her mind. Mary tells Nikolas that she did not set him up, that she just wanted to help him leave behind his stress. Nikolas tells Mary that perhaps this time away is the answer to his problems. Emily arrives and asks, answer to what? Mary tells Emily to leave and that Nikolas does not want to see her, and states that Nikolas has feelings for her. Nikolas tells them both to wait and stop fighting as if he was not there. Nikolas asks why Emily has come since he has made it clear he no longer wants to see her. Emily affirms that she will never give up on Nikolas. Mary tells Emily that she and Nikolas are going away. Emily asks Nikolas if this has anything to do with Alcazar. He tells her he doesnt want to get into that. She wishes them well, but puts them on notice that she will wait the rest of her life for Nikolas if necessary, and leaves the room.
At GH Ric wonders why Carly cannot understand the idea that someone can change since she and Jason have clearly done so. He also mentions the fact that Jason ostensibly always truthful has recently begun to lie. Alexis is shown waiting. Carly asks Alexis if she thinks Ric has changed. Carly walks away. Alexis is very aware of Rics psychotic panic room past. Ric makes an earnest plea, advises the only emotion left over from his psychotic period is grief over his lost child. Alexis wont come down on whether or not Ric has changed but she admits to understanding having lines and crossing them. Alexis says softly that she would like to think that Ric could change.

While she admits shes got control issues she agrees to Brookes conditions for a girl band consisting of Brooke, Georgie Sage and Maxie. (All the others will lip synch.) Only problem, Maxie cannot be found. Lois gets a phone call and panics: the audition in front of the producer has been moved up from tomorrow to one hour from now.
Tending Lilas roses. Heather is so confident she admits to Tracy what shes doing. Heather tells Tracy Edward will believe her over Tracy since Tracy has such a history of lying to her father. She says she listens to Edward and understands his feelings; that will give her an inside track over Tracy.
Tracy tells her she wont allow it. Heather calls Tracy a jealous woman who treats her father more like a love she is jealous of than a parent. Tracy turns angrily away and trips and falls right into the roses.
