Kristina writes in her diary her thoughts and feelings about how she loves and appreciates being close to her family as well as how important Parker is to her. She admits that she made a serious mistake trying to bribe her professor for a grade and lying to her parents about it. Yet it is very complicated to be gay. She hears the doorbell ring. She opens the door and notices Sonny at the door. He takes his daughter by surprise by Hearing that, she wonders what specifically he is sorry for, to which he reveals it's unlikely he has any clue that she's had a same sex encounter. He tells her he realized that in their most recent heated discussion, he made her cry. He never wants her to feel bad or ashamed or like her father is insensitive to her. He hugs her and she is happy that he's there for her. However, at that point, Sonny tells his daughter there is just one more thing. He tells her he's first to admit that he had a bad reaction to hearing that she offered sex to a professor for grades. Yet he now realizes it takes two to tango. Clearly, he (the assumed male professor) had a part in this also, Sonny reminds her. She got suspended. Yet, shouldn't an educator who's paid to teach students at an accredited university have some accountability and consequences for his actions.? Sonny informs his daughter, he did some investigating and had Max go and find him and get some information about this guy so that maybe the school can find out more about this him. Hearing that and realizing she cannot have her dad knowing her secret (the professor is a woman), Kristina urges her dad to call off the search, if he loves her. Hearing that, Sonny asks his daughter if perhaps this guy is threatening and intimidating her and that's the reason she's so adamant about not having him take action against her professor. She tells her dad that is not the case and she does not want to rely on him or Max to fix her problems for her. It's her life and she needs to fix it herself. Hearing that, Sonny concludes that he will always be into her problems but respects her wishes to fix her own life. She asks if that means that he is going to call Max and ask him to call it off. He tells her she may call Max. She immediately gets on her phone, thanks Max for his help but urges him to get out of the campus immediately and stay away from all of her professors, informing him that she has agreed with her dad that she is going to handle her own problem without the help of others. As soon as Sonny leaves and she is alone in the house, she continues to write in her diary, her close call of her dad getting ready to investigate her professor. She talks about a 14 year old girl whom she heard declaring she is so certain of her sexual orientation. She wonders how anyone that young can be so sure when she is not. She has known herself to be heterosexual all her life yet she has this very strong attraction to a female. She writes she knows it's not what she wants in her life to be crushing over Parker, like a lost puppy. Unexpectedly, the doorbell rings. She rushes to get it. It's Parker. She smiles at Kristina smiles back, mesmerized.
At the hospital, Tracy firmly lays down the law to Obrecht that she will not hesitate to get her fired and overthrow her position of authority if she thinks she can prevent Tracy from getting the consultation she wants with Dr. Finn. She demands that the chief of staff find Dr. Finn and get him there now. She asks Obrecht what her reservation about Dr Finn is about in the first place, to which Obrecht replies that she knows nothing about Finn, his background, record or practice history and she can't authorize him to practice in her hospital. Yet Tracy continues to demand that Obrecht find him and get him there. Monica concurs that Tracy's diagnosis is very uncertain. Nobody in GH has come up with any conclusive answers when they should have by now. And so they need a specialist. Monica knows about Finn's expertise with the very issue they've now detected Tracy may have regarding the conditions of visiting Mexico recently. Tracy continues to remind the chief of staff that she and her family fund the hospital and everybody's paycheck who works there and they can end Obrecht's position and revoke her license to practice medicine if she stands in their way with having Dr. Finn work on Tracy's medical case. Monica reminds Obrecht that her family can file a law suit against her. Hearing that, Obrecht is motivated by the very real threat of consequences which she does not want to experience, and so she promises to authorize Dr. Finn to work with Tracy, as they demand, without further argument.
While Dr. Finn stays at The Metro Court, Carly comes to see him in his room and is surprised by what she sees. She wonders why he's crawling on the floor looking for his lizard. He asks Carly why she wants to make a personal visit to his room. She then informs him that not long ago, her partner almost got arrested for public breastfeeding and the mayor or someone threatened to shut them down, claiming the health department had a claim against The Metro Court. For that reason, she needs to know why Roxie (the lizard) is in the hotel room with him. Hearing that, he informs Carly that Roxie is his service lizard and asks why Carly or anyone would find that strange. When she protests that he must realize most people would wonder why he'd have a service lizard, he lets her know if she does not respect his rights to have this type of service animal, he could press charges against her. Hearing that, she listens to what he tells her regarding his relationship with Roxie, characterizing her as though she's his dog, cat or a human being in his life. Yet Carly senses there may be a reason for his having Roxie around other than his chosen pet or service animal. He tells Carly the true reason is he likes lizards. He has Carly make contact with Roxie from under the table e to which he assures her he can tell that his companion likes Carly and perhaps they can be friends. At that point, Carly concludes she can now put on her bucket list that she has bonded with a lizard. She happily ends her conversation with Dr. Finn and encourages him to enjoy his stay, offering him champagne. As soon as he is alone, Finn pops open the bottle and celebrates with Roxie.

He reminds her that if Helena could see them all running around like fools obsessing about her and trying to figure out what she's up to, she would be very happy. They both know they do not want that. She admits to her son she definitely sees his point. Yet, she informs Nikolas that she took they key to an antiquities dealer who informed her it was used by Russians on a steamer. Nikolas tells his mom that they already know about Helena's and her ancestors' ties to Russia and that it could very well be that she gave Laura a key that means absolutely nothing, reminding her that the way they've always known the way his grandmother always wins is by having one believing they need what Helena has given them. Yet Laura maintains to her son that they need to know that Helena does everything for a reason as she continues to advise him not to be so fast to throw out the painting Helena gave him.
