At the Haunted Star the countdown to the new year concludes. Todd and Carly wish each other Happy New Year and kiss. Dante and Lulu wish each other Happy New Year as well as Lulu calls it the year of the baby. She suggests calling Maxie to wish her a Happy New Year, too. She calls Maxie who's phone is on the couch in her apartment, going unanswered.
At GH Maxie is with Britt who tells Maxie that she has miscarried Dante and Lulu's baby. Maxie doesn't believe it and asks Britt to tell her that she is still pregnant. Britt tells her that she can't because she has lost the baby.
At the Drake house, Patrick and Sabrina are watching TV before the look at each other and move in to kiss.
Maxie tries to understand how the miscarriage happened. Britt expresses that she is sorry for the loss. Maxie tells her not to be sorry for her because it wasn't her baby.
On the roof of GH, a drunk Spinelli is waiting for Ellie and calls her. On the road, Ellie is walking and hears her phone ring. She is happy that she is where she gets a signal now. Speeding down the road, Connie calls back to Johnny that the fog is lifting. She turns back to see Ellie right in her path. Michael drives in a car with Starr, Trey and Kristina. Starr tells a distracted Michael to look out.
As he opens a bottle of champagne, Spinelli leaves a voicemail for Ellie that it is after midnight, and he is alone which proves she doesn't wish to be with him. He asks where she is and pours the champagne over the side of the building.
Ellie has been it by a car and is unconscious by the side of the road. In one of the cars, Michael, Starr, Trey, and Kristina are also unconscious. The four of them bring each other around and think that they are ok. Michael says they spun out, trying to avoid hitting Connie's car. Starr is concerned for Johnny.
Todd and Carly continue to kiss and Todd asks Carly if she wants to leave. She says she does and they leave. Lulu and Dante leave Maxie a voicemail to wish her a Happy New Year. They assume she's asleep and promise to see her tomorrow.
Maxie asks Britt how the miscarriage happened. Britt tells her that its common in IVF pregnancies. Maxie asks if it was something she did and Britt assures her that it wasn't. She says that the embryo wasn't strong enough to survive and it's not Maxie's fault. Maxie wonders how she's going to tell Lulu. Britt offers to call Lulu but Maxie says it needs to come from her. She tells Britt she needs air and needs to think, then rushes off. Britt makes a call on her cell phone.
Patrick and Sabrina are about to kiss when they are interrupted by Patrick's cell phone ringing. Its Britt. Patrick asks her what's up.
Spinelli continues to ramble on the voicemail, letting Ellie know of all he had set up for her that will go unused, accusing Ellie of ending their relationship over his friendship with Maxie. He hears footsteps and calls out for her to disregard the last message he sent. Maxie comes through the door. Spinelli asks what she is doing there.
Ellie wakes up with a start but is unnoticed as Michael and Starr rush to Connie's car. She's not inside. They hear Connie's voice calling out for help. Michael wants to go to Connie and Starr wants to help Johnny first. Connie calls out for help again. Starr runs to the edge of the cliff to find Connie hanging on for dear life. Ellie calls out weakly for help but is unheard and unnoticed.
Maxie tells Spinelli she forgot about his plans. He says he didn't tell her but Maxie says Ellie did. Spinelli tells her that Ellie didn't show up. Spinelli tells Maxie that he and Ellie are over. He notices Maxie in tears and asks if the news that he and Ellie are over upsets her. Maxie says it doesn't but she messed everything up and doesn't know how to make it right. Spinelli suggests that she tell him what's wrong.
Britt called Patrick to apologize to him because she really wanted to spend New Years with him. He says he wanted to spend it with her, too. Sabrina packs up and heads out, telling Patrick she left a noisemaker for Emma as he hangs up. Patrick stops her, then tells him that he didn't pay her yet. He is short money to pay her and asks her to stay a few minutes while he goes to get more from the bedroom, check on Emma and return. Sabrina agrees to wait and he leaves the room.
Todd and Carly return to Todd's suite. More kissing before Todd offers her a nightcap. Todd suggests a toast to 2013 and to Connie kidnapping Johnny. Carly wonders what Connie will do to Johnny.

Carly asks if he always hears from her on New Years Eve. He says he hoped that she would call after she was so cold to him for Christmas. Carly tells Todd he never told her why Starr was so upset with him.
Starr looks down at Connie who can't believe Starr isn't helping her. Starr asks if she tried to run. Connie asks so what if she did, she obviously couldn't see anything through the fog. Her foot slips on rocks and she nearly falls. Michael gets the trunk of Connie's car open and finds Johnny bound, gagged and unconscious. Connie asks Starr for help again. Starr tells her that she killed her daughter and boyfriend so why should she help Connie. Connie's foot slips again and she loses a grip with one hand but is able to grab hold again.

Maxie tries to tell Spinelli how she screwed things up but he tells her that it was far from true. He tells her how she is doing something so selfless for Lulu and Dante. He then points to his set up and asks who he failure is. He grabs his bottle and tells Maxie that he will take her anywhere she wants to go. She just wants to go home. He agrees to go with her and they leave the roof.
Ellie again weakly calls out for help. She talks to herself, stating that she must stay awake and starts reciting the different things she believes are wrong with her. Connie tells Starr she has to help her up and can't leave her there as Starr starts to walk away. Starr reminds her that she killed her family at the very spot they are at now and that Connie deserves to die there, too. Connie reaches up and grabs Starr's wrist.
Carly accepts that Todd hasn't told her what happened with him and Starr but doesn't push it. She says that Michael hasn't called her but that's not unusual and even if it was, there's nothing she can do about it anyway. Todd can't stand it when Starr doesn't talk to her.
