She assures him she is not judging him, reminding him she has had and still has connections, through her father, to many resources on the black market. Yet he does not want to further discuss that, rely on her or have her privy to his business. He angrily tells her she is, once again, making a cause to make herself feel better because her old man robbed people blind.

While Spencer is in a private hospital room and Laura has found out her grandson has been making secret calls form a phone he's been hiding, she tells him she needs to know what is going on. Kevin is with them while she reminds her grandson that she can clearly see he's been making and receiving calls from one specific number. She demands he tells her the truth yet he tells his grandma that she cannot handle hearing the truth. Kevin assesses to Spencer that he can clearly see the boy is hiding something from his grandma. Spencer replies that it's none of his business because Kevin is not family. Laura then, firmly instructs her grandson not to talk to Dr. Collins that way, as she takes the phone out of his hand and calls the number on his call log.
In the abandoned house in Greece, Nikolas is with Ava. In another room, Jason is with Sam. They all know there is something going on that nobody is aware of and a mystery they have yet to solve. Right then, we see an unidentified person watching them from outside wearing black gloves. They wonder what it is that caused Nikolas to get hit over the head. Sam tells Jason she would not be surprised if Helena is still alive and out there not far away. She bets that Nikolas could very well be in cahoots with her and it might not be a bad idea prevent both Nikolas and Ava from leaving the house because they cannot be trusted, as she reminds him they now know, for a fact, that Nikolas has faked his own death.
Jason tells the others that he has locked them inside the house so they cannot escape. He and Sam go into the other room leaving Ava and Nikolas alone in the room, where Nikolas admits he was desperate to find a way to get Sam and Jason out of earshot before Spencer calls him and they find out his secret. Right then, his phone rings. Instantly, Jason comes through the door, revealing he can hear it and asks Nikolas if he wants to give him the phone or if he should take it from Nikolas. Laura gets on the phone when Jason takes the call yet neither can hear the other and the connection is breaking up from the storm and the call drops. Spencer clearly wants his grandma to believe his stories although she tells him she will keep his phone. He argues but she tells him she will take this phone to his uncle, the police detective if he does not come clean with what he is doing. The choice is his, she tells him. Either the police can answer the question or he can. At that point, Spencer admits he was calling his father and that Nikolas is, in fact, alive.
Hearing that, for the first time, she urges her grandson to tell them further details. He then informs them the night of the Nurses Ball, his dad told him something will happen. He informed Spencer that others will believe he's gone but he assured his son he will be just fine while he's on the lamb. When Laura assesses that her son has been using bad judgment for a long time, to which Kevin is surprised realizing that is not like Nikolas, Spencer protests they should not blame his dad. He's been doing this for a good reason, he tells them. When Laura finds out, from Spencer that his dad wanted everyone to believe he died, she asks what Nikolas' plans might be regarding him. Who did he want to have guardianship of Spencer? Or did he have other plans? Spencer is a bit uncomfortable answering that, knowing he's been put in the middle of this. He protests to his grandma that he is sorry, to which she tells him he's not as sorry as his father is going to be when she finds him. When they are alone, outside Spencer's hospital room, Kevin asks Laura if she's ok, to which she admits she's not really certain. She realizes she should be happy and relieved that her son is alive. But she cannot believe that he could do what he has done. He informs her that she can trust him with sensitive issues involving the situation with her son. She assesses that Nikolas could be up on criminal charges if he comes back to Port Charles. Yet she does not want to see an innocent man get charged with murder, now realizing that Jason Morgan has been accused of Nikolas' murder when Nikolas is alive. Kevin then asks her what she plans to do. She replies the first thing she intends to do is get Spencer back.
After Jason has been unsuccessful in finding who is attempting to call Nikolas, he tells both Nikolas and Ava they need to take off their shoes so they cannot go anywhere. They grudgingly do so. Not far away, we see............ Jason and Sam take the shoes from the two of them, close the door behind them and go into the other room. Sam walks down the stairs with Jason assessing that locking them up was a good start although they still have not unraveled their mystery. Right then, she can clearly see that somebody has been inside the house walking around.
Ava lies down in a bed when Nikolas informs her that is the very bed his grandmother, Helena Cassadine died in. At that point, she gets up from the bed, no longer comfortable. Right then, she notices a journal with information and dates noted and written by Helena. He does not want Ava to have access to that but she reads that Helena talks about how her family is there to escort her away from this place into the next life. Helena further writes she knows someone from her staff has been poisoning her. She declares she will die but will not go quietly. Right there, she reveals the involvement that her grandson has had in this. Discovering that, Ava remarks to Nikolas she never thought he had it in him. She asks if he does not see that they may be kindred spirits given their adventure together. She admits that she is in a similar boat as he is, regarding her daughter who may never forgive her for the things she's done. They both admit that they are not certain what they should be to each other. She admits maybe she had to find out what was ultimately in store for the two of them. Right then, she kisses him. He does not stop her and it gets heavier. However, at that point, she reveals that she has been playing him while she takes a little pouch out of his pocket and opens it to find the hidden diamonds.
When Jason and Sam are alone in the other room, he discovers a male spy in the room, dressed in black and he physically overpowers him to get him to admit who he is and why he's there. He sounds desperate, afraid, pleading and protesting as he informs them that someone has threatened and put him up to something. When the man is alone, we see a noteworthy tattoo that may reveal who he really is or who he is affiliated with.
