Jordan goes to the Metro Court restaurant to meet with her son who has not yet arrived. She does, however, see Curtis and wonders why she just so conveniently happens to see him at the same place. She asks him if he is following her. He asks her how he could be following her when he was there first. She replies he may have checked her schedule at the PCPD. She knows his tactics and how he operates and she remarks this place is a bit pricey for him. He responds that first she tells him he has no right to contact his nephew. Now she tells him where he can and cannot go. She reminds him she could have him run out of town and arrested for crimes very easily, knowing his history and given that she is now the police commissioner. He then replies what if he was following her.
Tracy is on vacation, in what looks to be a spa resort while on the phone to Ned She tells her son she's really happy to be out of Port Charles rid of Paul and all the men who want to take advantage of her. She is contented until she hears something that causes her to hang up. She notices someone smoking and demands they have the courtesy to put it out. She notices it's Larry Ashton Ned's father. She tells him to go away but he clearly does not want to and wants to talk to her. He asks her what brings her to this place. Is it a second honeymoon with Luke? She replies no. She and Luke are no longer together. She also reminds him that, not long ago, he was in cahoots with Jerry Jacks. He responds that he had to make a living somehow. Again he asks her what she is doing there. She tells him she is taking a break and getting away from shiftless losers like him. Larry, however, tells Tracy that he is there for the same reason she is. He has had to find himself after suffering personal setbacks as she has. Suddenly she laughs with him and seems to enjoy his company. She realizes that maybe he needs to stop believing that she should have a man who can complete her. Maybe she should just be able to have some fun with someone as Larry reminds her how they used to really enjoy being together. For a while, she enjoys his company, smiles and laughs with him.

She asks if his main reason is not simply so that he can retain ELQ shares and so that she can't testify against him. He admits that he wants her to be able to help him with that.

At the metro court, Jason and Sam go out on the rooftop terrace when it starts to rain. Right then he remembers being with her in the rain on this very rooftop when they were falling in love. He tells her he remembers them kissing. He remembers the way he felt and what he smelled and all that happened. He does not remember why or how they were there or when or what was going on. He does, however, remember that it was very real somehow. Hearing that, Sam clearly indicates she is in awe and she responds that yes, it was real. She then realizes, as she walks him through all the details of that very encounter, that she consciously remembers it all even though he does not. Yet, she concludes to Jason that she has reservations. If he needs someone to help him get his memory back, she does not believe that person should be herself. Sam tells Jason she cannot be involved because his old life is her old life too. She realizes she cannot be impartial or objective and therefore she cannot be involved in his process or his journey right now.

Laura asks Nikolas what his motives are for wanting to marry Hayden. She questions whether he really has genuine feelings for her, like he says he does.
