Alexis tells her how Helena saved Stavros and is helping him to get whatever he wants. Alexis explains that Helena is the capable one, and Stavros is the violent one. Anna asked why Nikolas didn't tell anyone about Stavros. Alexis explains that Nikolas try to stay close to them to find out what they were up to, but couldn't pull it off because he has a soul and a conscience. She tells Anna that Stavros wants Lulu, he took her and couldn't care less if anything happens to her, but if anything does happen, Nikolas will never forgive himself.
Nikolas tells Elizabeth how he and Lucky are patching things up. He tells her that he created business in Ireland to give him an excuse to go talk to Lucky. He says they talked about Laura and Lulu, but not about Elizabeth and the kids. He wonders if they didn't talk about her and the kids because of all the pain it caused. Elizabeth tells her that they made a mistake, now the three of them are paying for it. Nikolas says it is difficult for he and Lucky to be around each other, and asked if that's how it is for Elizabeth. She says she still doesn't completely know why he left. She does know that they could never find the love that they were supposed to have. Nikolas says that they may have found it if it wasn't for him. She tells him that Lucky would be the first to thank him for the risk he took for Lulu. Nikolas says he was still too late.
Anna speaks to the WSB on the phone, then hangs up and tells Alexis that she's not going to believe it. She tells Alexis how the WSB is working on advanced satellite footage of the Haunted Star. Anna says one of the bodies on the deck of the Haunted Star was just tentatively identified as Helena. Alexis tells her that's got to be a mistake. Anna says the only reason the identification is not definite is because they haven't been able to recover the body. Alexis can't believe that Helena is dead. She says that it has to be a decoy or something, because Helena isn't dead. She says she won't believe that Helena is dead until she sees the body, and even then she won't believe it. Anna tells Alexis that another person was seen leaving the ship. Alexis guesses Dante, but Anna tells her it was Ethan. Alexis asks why Ethan was there, but Anna doesn't know and Ethan will be questioned. Alexis asks about Luke and Laura. Anna tells her that Luke, Laura and Dante's signals were picked up and all three are on Cassadine Island.
Stavros tells Dante that Lulu isn't his anymore. He says he's preserved her the way she should be. Dante tries to convince Stavros that the computer isn't working anymore. Stavros says that it is functioning, and Dante tries to get Stavros to come and look. Stavros promises that Dante will regret interfering. Luke comes from behind, and knocks Stavros unconscious. He holds his gun on Stavros as Laura joins them. Laura tells Dante she's glad he's ok. She then goes to the door and pounds on it, calling out to Lulu. Dante and Luke drag Stavros over to the computer to use his thumb to open the door. Laura panics because Lulu isn't moving, and Luke looks in on her. The door opens and the three of them rush in. Luke lowers the table Lulu is on and they try to make her warm. Stavros comes to, steps in the doorway and orders them to stop touching her.
Alexis asks Anna to keep her informed on anything that Ethan says, and Anna promises to do so. Alexis says that Nikolas will be relieved to hear about Luke and Laura, but asks if there is anything about Lulu. Anna says nothing yet, then says that she needs to talk to Sonny and Olivia. Alexis says she'll be at the hospital if Anna needs her, then leaves. Sonny and Olivia come out of her office. Anna tells Sonny and Olivia that Dante's signal was picked up on Cassadine Island, and it appears that he's alive.
Maxie is worried that she just sounded selfish. Mac assures her that it's appropriate to wonder what will happen to the baby if Dante and Lulu don't return. She says she knows how badly they wanted the baby, and it would be sad if they never got to be parents. Mac encourages positive thinking that they will come back. Mac says if the worst happens, he assumes that Luke, Laura, Sonny and Olivia will decide custody. Maxie thinks they won't be able to agree on anything, but Mac has faith that they will be able to put their differences aside for the baby. Maxie wonders if she wouldn't be next of kin if anything happens to Dante and Lulu. Mac says that she's not the mother, so she has no connection after the baby is born. Maxie insists that she does have a connection.
Monica tells AJ that she's not trying to interfere, just trying to offer some advice. She says she can see that Elizabeth makes him happy. He tells her that he and Elizabeth like spending time together, and he hopes that continues.
Mac apologizes to Maxie, that she does have a connection because she's nurturing the baby and it's growing inside of her. He reminds her that she signed a contract that gives her no parental rights to the baby. Maxie says she's prepared to give up the baby, she was just counting on giving it to Dante and Lulu. Mac assures her that Dante and Lulu will be coming home, so there's nothing to worry about.
Olivia is relieved to hear that Dante is ok, and promises to read Dante the riot act for scaring her. Sonny reminds her of her not wanting to be a pushy Italian mother, but Olivia says she changed her mind. She tells him to stop acting so cool, she noticed how terrified he was. Sonny hoped that she didn't notice, and thanks Anna for everything. Anna is glad that she could give them good news.
Alexis returns to Nikolas' room, and he asks if she spoke to Anna. Alexis tells Nikolas that she passed her information along to Anna who gave it to the WSB. She then tells Nikolas about Ethan being seen leaving the ship. Nikolas and Elizabeth wonder why Ethan was there, since he wasn't likely working with Helena, Luke or Laura, but Alexis says Ethan was confirmed leaving the ship. She tells Nikolas that they will interview him, and get more information. Nikolas asks about Luke, Laura and Dante. Alexis tells him they are on the family island. He asks about Lulu.
Anna tells Sonny and Olivia that there's now word on Lulu. Olivia is confident that Dante will find her. Anna tells them that there's a complication: that Stavros is alive and that he took Lulu. Olivia asks if Stavros is dangerous, and Anna says that's the impression she gets. Sonny hopes that Luke, Laura and Dante are getting close to Lulu and Stavros before it's too late.
Stavros insists that Lulu is his. Luke forces Stavros further into the room as Laura and Dante get Lulu out. Once Luke is out of the room, they secure Stavros in the room to freeze. Dante is concerned that there's no pulse, but Luke wonders if the cold has slowed her heartbeat. Dante, Luke and Laura try to bring Lulu around.
Anna explains to Sonny and Olivia that they can't confirm Helena's death yet. Olivia asks if it's over when they get Lulu away from Stavros. Anna says she hopes so. Anna tells them how glad she is that Dante is ok. Olivia thanks her and leaves with Sonny. After they leave, Anna makes a call.
Mac gives Maxie some ice cream for her and the baby as his phone rings. He tells her that Anna is calling. Mac gets some news and promises to share the news with Maxie. He hangs up and tells her about Dante, Luke and Laura on Cassadine Island. Mac tells her that Dante and Lulu will be home soon to claim their baby.
Olivia and Sonny share their relief that Dante is ok and coming home. Olivia is sure that Lulu is coming home with Dante.
Nikolas asks Alexis to keep him informed when she hears from Anna. She promises to do so, and promises him a cupcake from Kelly's before she leaves. Elizabeth sits with Nikolas, asking if he feels better. He says he does. Elizabeth is confident that Luke, Laura and Dante will find Lulu and stop Stavros. Nikolas thanks Elizabeth for being there with him. They hug just as AJ arrives to see them.
Luke, Laura and Dante continue to work on bringing Lulu around. Luke and Dante are concerned that there's no pulse. Laura begs Lulu to breathe, but gets on response. Dante hold Lulu and tells her how sorry he is. From the next room, Stavros shouts at them to leave Lulu alone, because she belongs to him. Laura yells at Stavros that he killed Lulu.
