While we see the check on the coffee table, Hayden and Finn are kissing and ready to move to the next level. Right then, Tracy knocks on the door and although they don't want any interruptions, she reminds Finn that after the huge favor she's given him, he owes her the courtesy of letting her in. He then gets up to open the door although Hayden does not want him to do so. When she walks in and notices Hayden in her robe, Tracy remarks that it appears last night's social engagement took an unexpected turn. She asks them what happened regarding what Finn might have done with Hayden's date for the previous evening. She assesses to Hayden that, the previous night Finn was very concerned about her leaving with that guy. She told him he needed to stay out of it but he clearly did not listen, she informs them, to which Finn admits she's right. He found Hayden, he admits, to which Tracy asks what happened. Did he knock the guy out and drag her out? They both admit that Hayden got the guy intoxicated and also got herself drunk. In response to that, Tracy reminds Finn, and assumes Hayden already knows, that he called her while Hayden was sleeping, and asked if she could give Hayden a job at ELQ. Right away, Tracy concludes that Hayden must have seduced him in order to get him to make the call for her. Yet this is the first time Hayden has found out he's done that and she angrily tells Finn she does not want the job and now concludes that he merely did that in order to get rid of her. Tracy concludes to Hayden she does not trust or respect her and goes out the door. At that point, Hayden immediately suspects Finn for his part in this and announces he need not worry because she is gone. He urges her to wait and asks why she is accusing him of wanting to withhold from her, protesting he is concerned about her doing reckless things and it scares him. She then assesses to Finn that he will not allow himself to get close to anyone because he's afraid of losing them like he lost his wife. He then sensitively admits that may be true although he wants to get past that. Hayden assesses to him that even if that is true, his wife is still there and keeps him in limbo so that he no longer has to commit to anyone nor have a future with her.
Elizabeth and Franco meet at the police station although she has to wait for him to obtain something needed. Jordan enters and asks the two of them why they want to meet with her, to which Franco replies that he and Elizabeth want to clear up the last remaining reason that is causing General Hospital to stay closed, and how this new bit of information can enable it to re-open once and for all. He gets straight to the point and informs Jordan that the person who attempted to inject and kill Lucas and Bobbie Spencer was his mother, confirming that this should give them reason to re-open the hospital and enable himself, Elizabeth and all of their staff to get back to work. In response to that, Jordan assures them she will look into Heather Webber's culpability yet, she asks her if they expect her to believe Heather could have escaped from her maximum security facility in order to enter GH, attack Lucas and then conveniently returned to where she's staying, unseen and unquestioned. Franco replies that is exactly what he expects her to believe, reminding her this is his mother they are talking about who is the combination of Houdini and Lizzy Borden all rolled into one insane person. Yet Jordan declares to him that there is no credible proof that his mother committed those crimes. Yet he pulls out an envelope with evidence on the means and motives for a guard to help his mother escape from the institution the night in question. He has proof that his mom paid a guard a 6 figure check and shows it to Jordan. Right then, she starts listening and asks Franco how he obtained the information, to which he answers and asks her if she does not want to look into it and believe there's enough evidence for GH to re-open. Right then, Jordan goes off and asks them to wait there. Alone with Franco, Elizabeth is in awe that he did this and he admits he could not see her moving to another town and be without her.
Jordan later returns and confirms that there is sufficient evidence to prove what Franco told her about his mother. Shortly thereafter, Tracy rushes in and asks Jordan if the cops have found the killer and admits she cannot wait for the hospital to re-open because urgent things need to be done there. Jordan then informs Tracy they have good news. She thinks they've found the perp. Tracy asks who, to which Jordan replies Heather Webber. Tracy then asks Jordan whom her source of that information is, to which Jordan replies it was Franco Baldwin. Tracy is dumbfounded to learn that the person who has done this heroic deed would be that man.
Elizabeth and Franco go off together and she praises him for being her hero in getting her job back and saving the day. She asks if he could tell her how he got the drug dealer who helped his mom escape, to talk. He hesitates but admits that he sometimes knows how to revert to his old ways in order to get what he wants. He admits that man believed Franco was a very very bad man and that is how he trusted Franco. She admits that she may be falling for him.
