She looks at him, stunned.

Ava then tells AJ that it's between her and Tracy. AJ guesses that it has something to do with Franco's daughter. Ava feigns ignorance as to who Franco is. AJ thinks its interesting that Ava doesn't know who Franco is since he was a big deal before he lost his mind, and started to kill people. He figures that Ava would know that since she knows the art world. Ava says that she does remember Franco as something as a self-promoter and conceptualist. She says that the value of his art went up after he died. AJ says that the value went down again, because Franco is still alive.

She tells him how he used Claudia's body as part of his game with Jason when he blew up his studio and left Claudia's body behind. Carly tells him that he must have been happy the day Michael went to prison, because he could use Michael to hurt Jason. Franco continues to insist that he didn't intend to hurt Michael, only Jason. She assures him that he did hurt Jason, because there's nothing worse than watching your child suffer.

She asks why he is sorry now, after all the time and energy he used to make Jason suffer.

Michael wants to stop talking about it. He says that AJ nearly killed the guy.
AJ asks Ava if Tracy is paying her to put Tracy in touch with Franco's daughter. Ava says that her business with Tracy is confidential.

Franco tells her it's because life is an amazing adventure. He let Jason "kill" him, then Franco was able to get back to his life and his work.
