Luke goes to the hospital in Switzerland under the disguise of Dr. Von Scammerman, and tells the attendants that he is the psychiatrist of the mysterious patient inside the room. He tells the woman that his patient must have a rest so she cant go in the room before he does. She then gets a call and finds out that no psychiatrist by the name hes given exists. So she demands to know who he really is.
Back at the hospital, Jason reminds Patrick that Jerry Jacks attempted to kill Robin years ago and failed. He came up with a counter agent to kill Nicolas and many other people disappeared the last time Jerry was in town. Patrick then asks Jason why hes suddenly talking to him about Jerry.
Alexis tells John and Sam that all she remembers was going to Windermere and suddenly waking up on the couch at a later time. Sam reminds her mom that somebody injected her with a lethal drug.

Anna urges the young woman in the hospital room to look at the picture of her daughter and tell her if shes seen Robin there. The patient is non-responsive.

Her daughter is really gone. And she sobs in Lukes arms.
At the motel room, Joe Scully can see that Tracy misses her deceased brother and knows he would still be alive were it not for that man, Jerry Jacks. She tells him that Jerry held a large number of people hostage at the metro court and many got killed including Alan.

She asks him if Jason might have a justifiable reason.
Jerry announces on the television that he and his associates have released a deadly pathogen into the Port Charles water system.

Jerry announces that all people will feel the effects. And shortly thereafter, they wont feel a thing because they will all be dead.
At Ferncliff, Anna concludes to Luke that she got her hopes up for nothing. She needs to realize that their hopes of finding Robin are false. So they need to move on.

At the hospital, Jason tells Patrick he will find out what to do about Jerry.

Jason goes to find Jerry after John has cornered him. And they both hold guns on Jerry.
Elizabeth concludes that she cannot trust Dr. Keenan and Jason was right although he urges her to believe that he can explain. She must know that he did not know any more than she did about the water since hes also already consumed it. And he reveals that he knows that Jason has warned Patrick about him. He does not trust Jason but declares Patrick is a good man and a good friend and deserves better from him. Hearing that, Elizabeth demands to know what he is saying and what he may have done to Patrick.
Stephen and Olivia wonder what to do about the poisoned water. He tells her he knows that they cannot buy him off to give them the antidote that could save their lives. She protests that he will not give them the cure until he gets paid off. Stephen concludes according to federal law, it wont happen. He tells her he wouldnt be surprised if Jax would cover for his brother. But she protests she knows that Jax would never condone what Jerry is doing there. And Jax is the only person whos ever been able to reason with his brother.

Jerry tells Jason and John that as much as they would both like to kill him, they cant. Because if he dies then nobody will know how to find the serum. They need him to help them with that. But they are not going to be intimidated by that and are ready to rough him up.
Luke tells the doctor that his clinic relies on discretion. His patients require privacy. So if she tries to arrest Ms. Devane for trying to find her child, there will be a reign of publicity that the doctor will be very sorry for.

The doctor then reveals that she knows the secret about Robin Scorpio Drake and the mysterious man who reveals himself as Duke Lavery who has motives to protect Robin.
