Dante goes to the Metro Court and asks Carly where Michael is
and she says she has no idea.
Meanwhile on Sonnyís island, Max and Milo pass the time playing shuffleboard
while guarding Michael. Michael tells Max that Sonny has gone to all this
trouble to keep him out of prison but being stuck on the island makes him feel
like he is in prison anyway.
Sonny goes to see Alexis at her office. She asks him what he is trying to hide
by sending Michael out of the country to prevent him testifying.
Patrick and Lisa are stuck in an elevator at General Hospital. He suggests that
she arranged for the elevator to stop so she could be alone with him. She says
she doesnít know why he is making such a big deal about seeing her changing
clothes in the locker room. She says she has moved on since college and that if
he is bored with his minivan and picket fence, he should leave her out of it.
Ethan enters the Haunted Star dressed in a suit. Luke tells him he cleans up
nicely. Tracy comes into the bar and tells Luke they have to celebrate with
martinis because the casino is in the black. She asks why Ethan is dressed up.
He tells her he has a date with Jennifer to go to a new club called Pluto. He
says he has been a good boy for a long time and that is about to change.
Kristina is at home getting dressed up to go out. Molly tells her she looks like
she should be in a magazine or with a millionaire. Kristina tells Molly she
isnít going to the frat party. Molly wonders if Kristina and Keifer will sneak
into the city instead. Kristina asks Molly if she knows how to hack into Ethanís
email and send a message that appears to be from Jennifer saying she canít make
it tonight. Molly thinks she can. Kristina asks her to send a message from Ethan
to Jennifer cancelling their date, too so that Ethan can take Kristina out
At Alexisís office, Sonny says Michael doesnít need the stress of watching the
trial. She says he might as well get a neon sign that says Michael saw what
happened. He reminds her that she didnít want Kristina to go through a trial
when she ran Claudia off the road. He says Michael didnít see what happened so
he shouldnít have to go through it. Alexis tells Sonny that she took his case
because she doesnít want their daughter to think he is a monster but now that he
has taken Michael out of the country, she has questions. He tells her that he is
paying her and Diane to make the jury believe the truth that he killed Claudia
in self-defense and that if she has a problem with it, she should get off the
At the Metro Court, Dante tells Carly that Michael vanishing this close to the
trial looks bad. Carly says she doesnít see why since Michael has nothing to do
with Claudia. Dante says he wishes he could believe that. Carly says she used to
believe that Dante cared about her kids. He says he does care about Michael and
Morgan and he doesnít want their father to ruin their lives any more than he
already has. She asks him how sending Sonny to prison will help. He says Sonny
has to pay for what he did. Carly says Michael was in a coma for a year because
Claudia put a hit out on Sonny and now he might lose his father because of
Claudia too. Dante says that Sonny had no right to kill Claudia or to expect
Michael to keep quiet about what he knows regardless of what Claudia did. He
tells her that he saw her performance at the arraignment and it is clear that
she is going to defend Sonny because he is the father of her kids. He says he
supposes he can understand that but lying for Michael wonít help; it will make
things worse. She tells him he reminds her of Sonny because when he wants
something, he wonít stop no matter who is in the way or how many people get
hurt. Dante says Michael has been hurting for a long time. He asks her if she
doesnít think she should be putting a stop to it. She tells him he is twisting
her words just like Sonny does. She says she believes he wants the best for
Michael and wants to be close to him, but putting Sonny in prison isnít the way
to accomplish it. He tells her he is a cop and it is his job. She says she canít
help him. Dante says he knows Carly is trying to protect Michael. He says his
mother tried to protect him too, but now she regrets that she didnít tell him
the truth a long time ago. She tells him not to talk to her about regret when he
is trying to put his father in prison. He tells her that her stonewalling will
not help anything; they are going to find Michael. She tells him that perhaps he
should talk to Jax instead since the two of them work so well together. She
blames Dante for her split-up with Jax.
At General Hospital, Maxie says she is warm now and wants to go. Robin tells her
they are keeping her there for at least 24 hours to make sure she doesnít
develop fluid in her lungs. Mac comes to Maxieís hospital room and asks her how
she ended up spending the night freezing in the sewer.
In the waiting area outside of Maxieís hospital room, Spinelli laments to Johnny
his regrets about his poorly planned and executed attempt to recreate the
excitement of his first Maxie. Johnny tells Spinelli that Maxie is madly in love
with him; all he needs to do is trust in that and get out of his own way.
At the Haunted Star, Tracy asks Ethan if he can go to Pluto some other time with
someone not affiliated with the mob. Luke says it is better that Ethan will be
at Pluto with Miss Busty than hanging out with Johnny Z. Tracy says the bimbo
works for Sonnyís consigliere. Ethan says Jennifer is no bimbo. Tracy rephrases
that Jennifer is just an active participant in organized crime. Ethan says they
are just going clubbing. Tracy asks Ethan why out of all the beautiful women who
pass through the Haunted Star, he had to pick the one that could harm him most.
Luke interjects that it is genetics. Ethanís phone rings so he steps away to
answer it. Tracy asks Luke why his children are so drawn to the mob. Luke tells
her to leave Ethan alone because he hasnít seen him this happy in a long time.
Ethan returns and announces that Jennifer has to work tonight. Luke assures him
that Jennifer will be back. Luke says he has to leave early tonight because he
has a meeting in Vegas in the morning. Tracy wants to go too, but Luke asks her
to remain in Port Charles to keep an eye on Ethan.
Kristina calls Keifer and cancels their date, telling him she has a family
thing. Molly informs Kristina that she successfully sent messages to Ethan and
Jennifer cancelling their date. Molly wonders why Ethan doesnít just ask
Kristina out. Kristina says they have to be discrete for a while but that they
will figure something out. Kristina tells Molly that she will give her the
purple sweater that she likes if Molly will tell their mom that she is with
Keifer. Molly wonders why Kristina doesnít want to go to the party with Keifer.
Kristina explains that Keifer is leaving to go to Harvard and Ethan will be
local. She adds that Ethan is hotter than Keifer. Molly says Ethan is too old
for Kristina and their mother will never approve. Kristina says they will have
to sneak around for a while because Ethan is perfect for her.
At Alexisís office, she tells Sonny that she has told their daughter, Kristina
that Sonny is not violent towards women, and the only reason that he killed
Claudia was that he had to protect Carly and Josselyn. She says she is beginning
to doubt that story. She says she thinks Sonny doesnít want to put Michael on
the stand because he actually bludgeoned Claudia in a fit of anger and Michael
saw something he shouldnít have. He asks her if she really thinks he would beat
any woman to death. She asks him if he did.
At the Metro Court, Dante tells Carly that itís his job to get Sonny off the
streets. She only he can decide how to feel about his father but Michael canít
help him because he didnít see anything. Dante tells her that the Feds are
involved now, and they have jurisdiction almost everywhere. He asks Carly if she
wants Michael to return to the country in police custody and she asks him if he
really wants to do that to his little brother. Prosecuting attorney Clare Walsh
enters the Metro Court. She asks Dante about his progress in finding Michael
Corinthos. Carly tells Clare she can ask her about Michael. Clare says Michael
is an adult, they will find him, and he will tell them what he saw the night of
Claudia Zaccharaís murder. Dante says he has built a good case and he thinks
they can get a conviction without Michaelís testimony. Carly tells them that
they may finish their conversation if they do it quickly because Metro court
isnít a police station; itís a 5-star hotel. When Carly leaves them alone, Clare
asks Dante whose side he is on. Dante says Michael would be a disaster on the
stand because he is unreliable and emotional. He says Michael will do anything
he can to help Sonny. Clare observes that Dante protected Sonny when he shot him
and now he is protecting Michael. She tells him she is beginning to agree with
Agent Raynerís opinion that Dante is too close to them.
Epiphany takes Maxieís blood in her hospital room so they can run some tests.
She tells Mac not to stay too long because Maxie needs her rest. Maxie asks
Robin to tell Mac that the tests are just a precaution. Robin tells Maxie to
rest and she tells Mac to try not to worry. Robin and Epiphany leave; Spinelli
and Johnny enter. Mac says he knew Spinelli was responsible. Maxie tells Mac not
to yell at Spinelli. Spinelli admits that he is responsible and that he deserves
Stuck on the elevator, Lisa suggests that the Universe is trying to teach them
patience. Patrick says he doesnít have time for patience as he proceeds to bang
on the button bank. Lisa says she is hot and proceeds to take off the sweater
that she is wearing under her scrubs. Patrick is amazed that she doesnít get
tangled when she does that.
On Sonnyís island, Michael isnít interested in playing shuffleboard with Max and
Milo. He doesnít want to go to the beach either. He just wants to go home. Max
tells him he will go home, but mot before his fatherís trial is over. He
encourages Michael to take advantage of everything the island has to offer.
Michael suggests they order room service. He goes to the other room and calls
someone, but itís not room service. He tells the person that he wants to
surprise a couple of his fatherís men at the cabana.
At the Metro Court, Dante tells Clare that Michael has brain damage and anger
issues. He says Sonny may have sent Michael away because of his fragile
emotional state and not because he knows anything. Clare is certain Michael
knows something. She asks if Dante has considered removing himself from the
case. He tells her to feel free to remove him from the witness list. She says
she canít afford to put him on the stand if she doesnít know whose side he is
on. She says that it will compromise the case if the jury senses that he is
protecting his family. He asks her how she thinks the jury will respond to her
trying to destroy a kid who has already been through hell. She says she can tell
that Carly will favor her testimony toward Sonny so Michael is their best
witness. He tells her it is obvious that she doesnít have kids because she
doesnít see that putting Michael on the stand against his father will do to him.
Danteís phone rings. Lulu tells him she needs to see him immediately.
In Maxieís hospital room, Mac asks Maxie how she ended up in a storm drain with
Spinelli. She says they were on an important case. Mac is annoyed that Spinelli
is dragging Maxie along on mob assignments. Maxie clarifies that it had nothing
to do with the mob. Mac wonders why Johnny is there, then. She explains that
Spinelli texted Johnny to come save them. Mac asks her if it had occurred to
them to call 9-1-1. He thanks Johnny for saving his daughter but tells him he
needs to leave now. Maxie says that was rude, but Johnny says itís ok; he is
glad she is alright. Johnny leaves and Mac tells Spinelli to get out now. Maxie
says she needs Spinelli and she asks Spinelli to stay.
Dante enters Crimson and Lulu is surprised that he is there that quickly. He
explains that he was in the lobby and she saved him from Clare. Lulu says she
thought he and Clare were on the same side. He tells her that Clare thinks
Michael should be a witness but he thinks they should leave Michael alone and
focus on Sonny. She reminds him that he hasnít started working for the police
department yet. He says he knows, but he wants to help Michael and Morgan as
much as he can. She tells him she followed up on a favor he asked for and takes
him to show him what she has.
On Sonnyís island, two beautiful women arrive at the cabana to occupy Max and
Sonny goes to the Metro Court. Carly tells him that Dante had been there and
asked her where Michael is. Sonny says Dante is just doing his job. Carly says
she thinks Dante is changing his mind about it because she overheard him telling
the Federal Prosecutor that she doesnít need Michael to make her case. Sonny
says he had a feeling that Dante wouldnít hurt his brother.
On the elevator at General Hospital, Lisa tells Patrick that when they were at
school, she always admired his focus. He tells her it wasnít hard; he just set
out to be nothing like his father after watching his drunken father squander his
career. He says he didnít commit to anyone; he just focused on being the best he
could be. She observes that since he has been with Robin he wants to be the
perfect family man because his father was such a disaster. She tells him he must
know that he left his father in the dust as a surgeon years ago. Patrick says he
doesnít know about that; Noah Drake was good. He says his father was also a
shameless womanizer and he lost everything. He says he still thinks some people
expect that to happen to him too. She says that is a lot of pressure to put on
himself. He observes that she puts a lot of pressure on herself too. She
supposes they have something to prove. The elevator doors open. Epiphany asks
them how long they were stuck. Lisa says not too long. Robin says she became
concerned when Patrick didnít answer his page. He asks if they didnít notice the
emergency signal. The elevator maintenance man tells them that that car was
scheduled for maintenance today and that there was a sign in front of it.
Patrick says he didnít see a sign.
In Maxieís hospital room, Mac tells her that he isnít going to argue with her
because she needs her rest, but he says Spinelli would not have dragged her into
that sewer if he cared about her. She corrects him that it was a storm drain.
Mac tells her that she is skipping out on her own life to be with Spinelli and
he is going to get her killed one day. Mac leaves and Maxie tells Spinelli that
Mac didnít mean what he said; he was just worried. Spinelli tells her that Mac
was right. He confessed that everything except the original case was fiction. He
tells her that the chef was cheating on his wife but she was never in danger. He
tells her that he enhanced the facts so that they could solve a mystery
together, and then he could come up with a brilliant solution and be her hero.
She tells him he didnít need to do that. He confessed that there was no reason
to go into the storm drain. He says it was a stupid, dangerous ruse. He says he
wanted to remind her of how they got together and he wanted to save her. She
tells her that he did save her by texting Johnny. He admits that Johnny just
happened to find them by chance and that if he hadnít, Maxie could have died in
that storm drain.
Lulu takes Dante to look at an apartment she found. She tells him that he has
until tomorrow to decide if he wants it. He tells her it is amazing and that
when he asked her to look online, he didnít expect anything like this. She says
she was motivated because his room at Kellyís and her apartment both have so
much traffic. She says she thought this one might remind him of Brooklyn. He
tells her that it is perfect and she is too. They kiss.
At the Metro Court, Sonny reveals to Carly that Alexis is beginning to put
together her own scenario about Sonny killing Claudia. Carly recommends that
Sonny fire Alexis. Sonny says he doesnít want to upset Kristina, but he doesnít
want Alexis to tell Kristina about how she thinks he killed Claudia either.
Carly asks him what Alexis thinks happened. He reveals that Alexis thinks he
bludgeoned Claudia in a fit of rage. She says Alexis always thinks of the worst
possible scenario. Sonny says he doesnít want his daughter to think he would
ever deliberately hit a woman Ė not even Claudia. He says he is considering
telling Dante the truth because he doesnít want his son to think he would ever
bludgeon a woman to death.
Alexis arrives home and asks Molly is ready for their night out. Molly says she
has been looking forward to it all day. Alexis notices that Molly is wearing
Kristinaís sweater and molly assures her that she has Kristinaís permission to
wear it. Alexis tells her to be careful not to spill anything on it. She asks
Molly if she is sure that she wants to see The Princess and the Frog a third
time. Molly says yes and asks if they can go to the Pizza Palace afterwards.
Alexis says they can do whatever Molly wants to do. She asks if Kristina went
out with Keifer. Molly lies and says Keifer picked Kristina up.
Ethan is working at one of the poker tables at the Haunted Star since his date
was cancelled. Nearby, Tracy observes to Luke that Ethanís cancelled date worked
out well for their profit margin. Luke says he is surprised that Jennifer
cancelled because she seems so taken with Ethan. Lukeís phone rings and when he
looks at the caller ID he says it is for Tracy and hands her the phone. Her
father needs her so she tells him she will be right there. Tracy leaves. Luke
overhears the gambler at Ethanís table telling Ethan he is a shark. Ethan tells
the gambler that he was close. The man stands up and says he isnít buying that
line. Luke steps in and tells Ethan to take a break, comps a drink for the
customer, and takes over as dealer. Ethan goes behind the bar and pours himself
a drink. Kristina comes up to the bar and asks her to pour her one too.
Lulu and Dante are walking through the apartment. He says it is great and he
loves the location. Lulu tells him he isnít supposed to take the first one he
sees. He says she was the first into his heart and he took her. He kisses her
and tells her this apartment has everything he needs. She observes that it lacks
a mattress and he says mattresses are overrated. They kiss again; she drops her
purse on the floor and says, ďWelcome home.Ē
On Sonnyís island, Max, Milo, Michael, and the two local women play limbo.
At the Metro Court, Carly warns Sonny that Dante may be his son, but he is still
a cop and he canít risk telling him about Michael. Sonny says he hates that his
son thinks the worst of him. Carly reminds him that Michael and Morgan donít.
Clare Walsh enters with a subpoena for Michael to testify at Sonnyís trial.
Keifer goes to Alexisís house, bangs on the door, and yells for Kristina to open
At the Haunted Star, Luke observes as Ethan tells Kristina that whatever she is
trying to do isnít cute anymore. He tells her she is underage and cannot be
there. She asks him if he is going to card her. He tells her she could get the
place shut down. She tells him to admit that he would rather be with her than
with Jennifer. He asks her how she knew about his date with Jennifer. She coyly
says she has her ways. He demands to know if she had something to do with
Jennifer cancelling on him. She shrugs. He comes around to the front of the bar,
grabs her by the arm, and tells her she is out of there. She says no, she isnít,
as she picks up his drink from the bar and throws it in his face. He calls her a
