Laura finds Tracy at The Metro Court and tells her she wants to talk about their mutual ex husband Luke. She admits she cannot locate him nor knows how to get a hold of him. Tracy informs her that she has no way to contact Luke either and can't help her. Laura tells Tracy she wants to get the word out to Luke that his enemy is gone. Hearing that, Tracy asks her if, by that, she means that Luke's enemy is good common sense, responsibility and things of that nature. Laura clarifies the enemy that Luke no longer has to worry about is Helena Cassadine. Laura admits to Tracy that she just wanted to find out Luke's thoughts and feelings about that, given his history with Helena and otherwise would not have bothered Tracy about Luke, realizing she is not comfortable having to dredge that subject up. Tracy assures her she has no ill will toward Luke. In response to that, Laura remarks that it appears to her that Tracy has moved on when she saw Tracy happily with Paul Hornsby at The Nutcracker Gala. Hearing that, Tracy smugly remarks to Laura that she is clearly not up with the times, as she informs her she's now discovered that Paul Hornsby is nothing more than a slimy dishonest opportunist who will never again be in her life. She admits that her involvement with Paul Hornsby was a serious lapse in judgment and she wants to be done with that. Laura then tells Tracy maybe she needs to take a page out of Luke's book, to maybe assess why she keeps trusting the wrong people and maybe go off and find herself as Luke has. Tracy assures Laura she is fine but might consider that at some point.

Michael is serving them along with Jason. Nikolas notices the document alleges that Michael and Jason have the right to all of what was previously Nikolas' majority shares. Hearing that, Hayden concludes that could be one more reason why it's best for them to have Jason behind bars where he will not be able to have that power. Yet he is happy to be getting released from the hospital relishing the thought that she may have missed him. Before she can continue that conversation with him, however, she gets a call from Tracy urgently asking her to meet at the Metro Court. Hayden tells Nikolas she has some ELQ business to attend to but will return soon for his welcome home party. After she leaves, Laura comes by and continues to ask her son why he could be involved with that woman given that he had her shot and he needs to know it's only a matter of time before she finds that out. Laura tells him the lies and secrets he's keeping are eating his soul and urges him to tell her that it will end. She reminds her son he has been given a second chance to live and urges him not to waste that. She tells him he can now get his life moving in the right direction and be the man he wants to be. He asks her if she is implying he needs to give up control of ELQ because he will not. She agrees that she will not get involved in his feud with the Quartermaines and realizes they have done far worse to him than what he is now doing. However, she is concerned about the wrong path Nikolas is now taking. She reminds him that Hayden was hired by Ric Lansing to scam Jason into believing she was his wife. So, she urges Nikolas not to trust this woman and give her a chance to break his heart or worse.
