He tells her that he feels the same way. He sees John everywhere he goes and has to keep reminding himself that hes gone. She tells him that all they can do now is hope that Nikolas will reconsider and let them see him again. He then gets up and tells her that he cannot keep doing this. She asks him what he is talking about. He tells her that this is not fair to her or to the baby. He tells her that if he is not around, then its possible that Nikolas will let her see the baby. He tells her that Nikolas is angry at him and not at her. She asks him what he is talking about when he says if he was not around. He tells her that maybe he should leave Port Charles.

From outside the window, Maxie observes them and looks disappointed.
Edward tells Skye that Justus was the son of a child that he barely knew and the grandson of a woman whom he loved more than anything. He tells her that Justus real father died from violence. And he regrets trying to push Justus into what he wanted him to be. Maybe if hed just let Justus develop his talent his own way, then Justus might still be alive today. He had to join forces with his gangster cousin. And he tells her that hes now learned that criminals will never change. And anybody who gets mixed up with them is in trouble. He concludes if she loves that child, then she will get away from Lorenzo Alcazar.
Lorenzo tells Diego that he knows that whoever killed Justus was probably after Jason. Justus is Jasons lawyer. And they had motive to pin the crime on him so that Jason would blame him for it. Diego remarks to his father that he is amazed at how good he is at this and he asks Lorenzo whom he believes would have done this. Lorenzo says he believes that it would be Manny Ruiz. Diego tells Lorenzo that he thought that guy was dead. Lorenzo admits not yet.
