They got a tip from someone in the Cassadine compound; a nurse named Misha. Alexis has never heard of her. Luke tells Alexis that Helena had him bludgeoned on the head here at his bar and he woke up in a cell. He tells her that one day the guards changed to a more lethal, serious group. Someone left his cell door open and when he found Helena, she was sick in bed, barely hanging on and she warned him that her illness and his incarceration were the work of one of Alexisí siblings. Alexis concludes that it must be Valentin. Luke asks her if she can tell them about him. Alexis tells them that she has never met Valentin, but she has heard that he tried to do bad things to her father. She says her dad never actually saw Valentin doing anything. He was like a ghost. Alexis says she thinks Valentin is a front for Helena.

Nikolas orders the orderly to take Helena to her room. Once she has left, Nikolas tells Lucky that the person who held Luke captive poisoned Helena. He reveals that it was his uncle Valentin who everyone thought was dead and who according to Helena, is determined to take out every Spencer and Cassadine that he can find. He explains that the reason he needs his grandmother healthy is that she is the only person who knows Valentin well enough to keep him at bay. Lucky tells Nikolas that Helena is a disaster waiting to happen and if Nikolas doesnít get her out of there, Lucky will do it.

He tells Jax he is a lucky man. They shake hands and Sonny departs. Carly tells Jax that she knows that wasnít easy for him and thanks him for putting his bitter history with Sonny aside.
In the Laundromat, Ronny tells Dominic that whoever called the Senator cares more about busting Sonny than he does about Dominicís life. He says Dominic needs to bee off the case now that Sonnyís wife knows his identity. He tries to persuade Dominic to ask for a transfer and let someone else deal with Sonny. Dominic says he will not step aside and let Ronnie take the credit. He says Claudia knows his real name but she doesnít know that he is a cop. Ronnie says there is another complication.

time to think clearly and see if she could live her life under different
circumstances. He asks if she means remarrying Lucky. She clarifies that she
means remarrying Lucky despite her guilt over sleeping with Nikolas. He tells
her he is just as guilty of that. She tells him that they both need to protect
their relationships with Lucky. He asks her if she wants them to pretend it
never happened. She tells him she can keep a secret if it means a life with
Lucky and the boys because she can make them happy. He tells her he wants Lucky
and the boys to be happy too. He will respect his decision and he guesses he
will try to make it work with Rebecca.

He apologizes telling her it is over his head and she will need to take it up with the commissioner or the senatorís office. Ronnie says he is getting out of there before his cover is blown. Olivia tells her son that they cannot make him risk his life like this if he says no. Dominic says he didnít ask to be put back on the case but he is grateful to whoever made it happen. Olivia asks him how many people know about the assignment. He tells her that whoever it was is pretty powerful and knows he is the best chance for bringing Sonny down. Olivia asks him if he is sure that there arenít other people who are doing worse than Sonny is who deserve to be in prison more than Sonny does. He tells her that he knows Sonny is an old friend and he has kids. He knows that it will be tough on them growing up without a father but Sonny knew all that and still chose to do what he did. He tells her he has to go back to work and leaves the Laundromat.
At the motel, Sam tells Jason that it is cheaper to pay for the room than it is to pay bail. He hands her some cash and she goes to the office to pay for the room. A woman comes up to Jason and tells him that whatever Sam will do for him, she will do it better.
At Lukeís bar, Ethan says that if Helena is using Valentin as a front, she poisoned herself and that doesnít make sense. Luke says that it is unlikely but not impossible; Helena is crafty and twisted. It is possible that she could create a monster to do her dirty work and then poison herself to make the story stick. Rebecca enters and asks them to guess who just checked into General Hospital. Ethan tells her that Nikolas mentioned that he might drag Helena pack to Port Charles. She tells them that they obviously donít need her warning. Ethan suggests that she warn Nikolas that his grandmother is up to something or better yet, avoid Nikolas altogether. He tells her that Nikolas is using her; he wants to hurt her just to watch her suffer. She tells him she doesnít need this. He says Nikolas told him he wouldnít believe him. She tells him that her life is none of his business. He reminds her it used to be and she says a lot of things used to be as she turns and leaves. Ethan turns around to discover Luke is staring at him. Luke tells him he is wearing his heart on his sleeve. Ethan reminds him that before he disappeared, Ethan told him he might stick around for other reasons. He reveals that the reason was Rebecca. He tells Luke he met her long before they came to Port Charles and he convinced her to run a con with her to bilk Nikolas and the Quartermaines out of millions. Luke, upon hearing about the Quartermaines concludes that Ethan was trying to move in on this territory and tells him he is not to be trusted. Ethan says like father, like son. Ethan says Nikolas found out and now he is bent on breaking Rebecca. Luke tells Ethan that it is never a good idea to go up against the Cassadines. He tells her that heíd better make sure that Rebecca is worth it before he tries to take her away from Nikolas because it is possible that he could revert to genetic predisposition and ďgo all Cassadine on his ass.Ē
In the private room at the hospital, Elizabeth asks Nikolas how his being with Rebecca helps her and Lucky. Nikolas tells her that since he cannot be in the same room with her without wanting her, Rebecca is the distraction he needs right now. Elizabeth asks Nikolas if he honestly has feelings for Rebecca after the way she betrayed him. He admits that he no longer hates Rebecca. Elizabeth asks if it isnít wrong to use her like that. Nikolas says Rebecca never needs to know how he feels about Elizabeth and that leaves her free to be with Lucky. Nikolas leaves.
Sonny arrives home and Claudia asks him where he was. He tells her he was at the hospital; Carly went into early labor. She says John told her about it. Sonny tells her that they were able to stop the labor and the baby will be ok. Then he apologizes, telling her that that was insensitive. She tells him that women will be pregnant around her for a lot of years and she is ok with it. She says she is still waiting to find out if she is pregnant. He tells her they need to stabilize the business situation to ensure no sudden moves or unnecessary risks.
In the prison, Joseph Limbowski thanks Anthony Zacchara for arranging his early
parole. Anthony tells him that the only thing he wants in return is that he
wipes out Sonny Corinthos and his organization. Anthony says it is critical that
everyone believes Joey acted on his own and not be able to trace it back to
Anthony. Joey tells Anthony that Sonny will never know what hit him.
Outside the motel, Jason tells the woman he is not interested and she tells Jason that he is a beautiful guy and she appreciates that in more ways than he will ever imagine and way more than that low-end trick he walked in with. Jason asks her to go away. Sam returns, tells the woman that this one is already spoken for, and tells her to move along. The woman leaves and Sam gives Jason the room key.
Rebecca meets Nikolas at the hospital and he tells her she needs to know something. She tells him she already knows about Helena; Lucky asked her to try to convince Nikolas to send Helena somewhere else. Nikolas says he would if it werenít so complicated. Rebecca says she knows Nikolas would not have brought Helena here without good reason and she trusts him to do what is right. He warns her that pain always follows where Helena goes. She tells him she is prepared to stand by him and not let him face it alone.
Alexis enters Helenaís hospital room and tells her she looks awful. Helena tells her that aging has not made her any sweeter.

Helena tells her that she is not the only bastard Cassadine who is an ongoing inconvenience. Alexis tells her she is not convinced her threat is real. Helena tells her to ignore her half-brother at her own risk. Alexis asks why he would come after her; she doesnít have anything to do with the Cassadines. Helena says Alexis was raised in her fatherís house, which is more than Valentin was given and he wants revenge. She says he is insane and will destroy any Spencer or Cassadine that he can. She says she should have killed him when she had the chance. Alexis concludes that Helena is really scared. Helena says Alexis should be too.

Olivia says it must be nice to have people he can count on to take care of the people that he loves. She says she thought they were friends. She thought she could trust him but now Dante is back on the case risking his life. Jax tells her that being an undercover cop is a dangerous job. She screams that he did this. She says he called in favors to get Dante back on the case because he doesnít care about anything but getting Sonny behind bars. Dante is just a means to an end. Jax says that is not true. Carly enters as Olivia tells Jax that this is between him and Sonny.
At Sonnyís house, Claudia tells him that she understands they need to keep a low profile at least until Carly has her baby. Sonny says he is trying to make up for what he brought down on her when Michael got shot. She shouldnít have to worry about the boys and he is doing everything he can to keep his kids safe. She says she knows, and that is why she respects his choice not to have any more kids. He reminds her that when they got married, he did not intend to have any more kids. She says she wonít try to change his mind, unless she is already pregnant. She says that she hopes she is but if sheís not she will just focus on being a good stepmother to the kids he already has. Dominic enters and apologizes for interrupting. He tells them that he just found out something that is likely to change all of their plans.
At the hospital, Nikolas tells Rebecca that he usually avoids his grandmother but she is the only one who can offer insight into this relative who is determined to blow up his life. She asks him if he is exaggerating that Helena is a dire threat. He says no, and her gullibility can get her killed. Rebecca asks what Helena can do to hurt anybody when she can barely lift her hand. Nikolas warns Rebecca not to underestimate Helena. He tells her that the fact that Helena is terrified of Valentin only make the threat more serious. She concedes that she may be downplaying the danger but says Nikolas may be blowing it out of proportion and the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. She tells him that he can count on her. She is not afraid. He tells her she should be afraid. She should run as far away from him as she can.
Elizabeth enters Helenaís room and Helena asks Elizabeth why she didnít ask to
have someone else take care of her. Elizabeth tells her to be grateful she
doesnít kill her. Helena tells her she wouldnít because she is a dedicated
professional. Elizabeth tells her she can always be poisoned again. Helena
commends Elizabethís fierce stance. She says it is a refreshing change from her
usual banal declarations of eternal love for Lucky. She asks if Lucky has any
idea that she and Nikolas are becoming lovers.
Jason and Sam enter the motel room and begin looking around. Someone knocks on the door. Sam answers the door and finds the woman who approached Jason earlier. She identifies herself as a police officer and says they are both under arrest for solicitation.
At Sonnyís house, Dominic reveals that Joey Limbo is being released from prison today. He says that is like sticking dynamite into an already unstable situation. Sonny asks Claudia if she knows anything about it and she says this is the first she has heard of it. She says Joey is an independent. Dominic says Joey has been allied with the Zaccharas in the past. Sonny asks Dominic if he has worked with Joey. Dominic tells him no, Joey was already in prison, but he knows that Joey is cocky and is a loose canon. Claudia says there has always been as much friction as friendship between Joey and her family. Sonny says the timing is not good; he doesnít need this trouble right now, so he will have to strike first before this Joey guy takes care of Sonny or his family. Claudia thinks Sonny is right. Sonny asks Dominic if he has a problem with this since Joey has never done anything to him. Dominic says his past screw-up is behind him; he will do whatever needs to be done. He asks Sonny if he wants him to kill Limbo.
Jax asks Carly what she is doing in his office; she should be home resting. She says Dr. Lee called her in for more tests and she thought he would want to go, so she stopped by to pick him up.
