okay, n’neka, I just got confirmation that the party is on their way. I can’t believe three guys booked the place for the whole night. Well, believe it, and let’s just make sure that the drinks are filled and everyone’s having a good time. Absolutely, boss. Alright. Hey, curtis. Hey. I have some news on drew’s plane crash. Okay. You know what? Let’s talk about this somewhere else. No, w-wait. We don’t have to go anywhere. It’s not gonna take long.

I don’t, but you might want to. Hey, hey, hey. Hey. I didn’t think you were working tonight. I’m not. I am on my way to carly’s bachelorette party. Oh. Bobbie asked me to help her set it up. I got a surprise [Laughs] That’s gonna blow carly’s mind.

[ Laughs ] So, you seeing sam tonight?

[ Chuckles ] Sure, boss. Don’t worry. I’ll do what you pay me for. Don’t I always? Sasha: Willow. Hi. Hi. I’m so glad to see you. I wasn’t sure you were gonna be here between nursing school and wiley and everything else you’ve got going on. When olivia invited me, I decided to treat myself to a break. Good for you. And I don’t know if anyone told you, but there is definitely good news. Chase can walk again. That’s fantastic. It is. I am so happy for him. Is something else going on? Chase learned that michael and I are together before we could tell him ourselves.

[ Sighs ] I’m so sorry. Me too. I put off telling him, and in the end, I only hurt chase worse. Hey, it was an impossible situation. You did the best you could. And if chase doesn’t realize that now, I am sure that he will eventually. In the meantime, please tell me that you and michael are happy. We are. Very happy.

[ Chuckles ] What about you and the baby? The baby is fine. And the mommy? I would feel better if I knew for certain that brando isn’t working for the mob again. Bobbie: Hey, willow. Hi. Okay, so, olivia just texted, and my mom’s on her way. So, everybody, get ready. Great. All: Surprise!

[ Laughter ] Okay, look, let’s go. Okay? Wait, wait, wait a minute. What’s this about? Why am I suddenly not welcome here? I’ll explain it all to you later, but right now, I got to get you out of here. I know he doesn’t want a bachelor party, but for once, he’s not getting his way, okay? A proper send-off is in order, and a proper send-off he shall have. Michael: That’s what my dad would have wanted for him. You are 100% correct.

[ Chuckles ] Greetings and felicitations, fair samantha. If you don’t mind me asking, what are you doing here? Why? Am I not supposed to be here? And this is why I wanted you out of here. Hey, look, just one drink, a couple of toasts, and then we’re gone. Right, spinelli? Maybe two drinks.

[ Sighs ] Okay, yes. One is perfectly acceptable. Just the point is to celebrate the impending nuptials. This is lovely, mike. Like a sidewalk café. We could be in paris instead of nixon falls. Yeah, that was my idea. My official date — my first one with nina. Well, how’d it go? Well, it was great. You know, it was great until we ran into a roadblock. And I don’t really think there’s any way around it. What could you possibly have to say to me about nina? Well, it’s about my visit to her in nixon falls. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I heard the highlights. You — you played the hero, stopped two robbers, got shot in the process. Well, I stopped one of the robbers, and her new boyfriend stopped the other. Yeah. The mysterious new boyfriend. The man who replaced you in nina’s heart. What do you know about him?

, as I said, libationsare most certainly in order. Shall we continue on to the bar? Hey. May I speak to the man of the hour, please? Uh… can you just order me a beer, spinelli? Yeah, coming right up. Come on. So, tomorrow’s the big day. Yeah, it is. Well, I’m sure the wedding will be everything you and carly want. Well, you know, maxie, she’s working hard on it. I’m sure she is. Well, I, um — I wish you and carly the best. Thank you. I wish the same for you. Sam? Yeah. You okay? Yeah. Yeah, I’m gonna be fine. I’ve had a lot of time to process the fact that jason and carly are getting married. She was always really important to him. So was sonny. And, you know, most of the time, he chose her first. Now he doesn’t have to choose anymore. Spinelli: Apologies. It didn’t occur to me that fair samantha might be here. Spinelli, it’s fine. Still, it was pretty awkward. And I mean, you didn’t even want a bachelor party in the first place. You know what? Actually, uh… I was wrong. You know, carly and i are getting married tomorrow, and that deserves to be celebrated. Oh, my god. How did I not know you were planning this? You guys, we surprised carly corinthos. Give yourselves a pat on the back. Okay, olivia told me that the pool was reserved for a sweet 16 birthday party. Well, we didn’t want you to know what we were up to, and we needed an excuse to show you how much we love you. Aww. And how happy we are that you’re marrying jason. Yes. Okay. So, there’s no imaginary sweet 16 party that I have to take care of… no. …Or solve problems or something? No! All you need to do is relax and enjoy yourself. Well, with my favorite people here, how could I not? Mm-hmm.

[ Laughs ] Here you go. Okay. You guys, this is so lovely. And exciting. This is your last night before your wedding day. Yeah. I’m starting to feel like a real bride. [ Chuckles ] Why would you say that? Of course you’re a real bride.

[ Sighs ] Nina says she doesn’t want to get closer to me until I find out who I am, ’cause she says that when I find out who I am, I’m not gonna want to see her anymore. What do I do with that? Mike, your feelings for nina are real. Well, that has to count for something.

[ Door opens ] Hi, phyllis. How are you? Oh, wait. That — that’s a really dumb question. I’m sorry. Forget I said that. I’ll always be grieving for lenny, but I know he wouldn’t want my life to stop. He’d want me to live it to the fullest, to find joy where I can. And since he’s not here to ask you, I’ll ask you for him. Why can’t the two of you simply live in the moment? Please tell me everything you know about nina’s new boyfriend in nixon falls. Jealousy doesn’t become you, jax. Ohh. And I’m certainly not going to confide in the man who conspired to keep from nina the death of her daughter, a daughter she didn’t even know she had until after nelle was dead! You can’t imagine how sorry I am for my actions, but believe me or not, I am trying to help nina now. Just go, jax. We’re done here. Josslyn: Given your relationship with sonny,

you probably never tried his marinara,

but you have to believe me when I tell you

this tastes exactly like sonny’s sauce.


Where’d you get it? Trina picked it up at some bar in nixon falls.


Well, what was

the name of the bar? You know what? You’re right. I’m being ridiculous.

No, no,

I didn’t say that.

No, it has to

be a coincidence. I mean, this can’t be

sonny’s sauce.

It’s crazy, right? No, ava, I’m not leaving here until you give me some answers. Ma, how many times I got to tell you, my personal life is — well, it’s just that — it’s personal. That’s hard for you to understand, I know. So you are seeing sam. Mm-hmm. That’s great. I think it’s great. Well, great. I’m glad you think it’s great. We’re meeting here to investigate something, if you got to know. Mm-hmm. Right. Mm-hmm. Ma, stop. Okay. Look, I’ll leave you to it. I got to go take ce of carly’s party, make sure everything’s right, especially the entertainment. It’s gonna be such a surprise.

[ Laughing ] Oh. Oh.

[ Laughs ] Dante. Yeah. How’s it going? Brando, hey. Yeah, it’s going good, man. No complaints. Alright. By the way, congratulations. You’re about to become a father, right? Yeah. Thank you, thank you. Yeah. You got any tips? Yeah. Don’t mess it up.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. I think you just do the best you can, man. Trust your instincts. I met rocco a few times when sonny was still with us. He seems like a great kid. Thanks. Yeah, he’s a great kid. He’s psyched to have a cousin on the way, that’s for sure. I just know sonny, he would have loved to be here to see you become a father. Dante, hi. Hey. Brando, what are you doing here? I got to take this, but, hey, congratulations, you guys. Thank you. I’m on a job. One of those side gigs you mentioned? One of them. Care to tell me which one?

I am working to make sureour baby has everything he or she needs, and then some, once it’s born. Just promise me that whatever you’re doing, it’s not mob-related. Trust me, okay? What are you doing here? I thought you were supposed to be at carly’s bachelorette party. I am. Just taking a break to powder my nose. Uh, carly’s party’s here? Yeah. Out by the pool. Call me later, okay? Mm-hmm. After your mysterious side gig. Dante. I have a problem. I found some information on drew’s plane crash that I think you’ll find interesting. Okay, well, information is only as good as the source. Okay, well, dante and i were able to get a hold of the wsb files on drew’s plane crash. And? And it was a charter flight, not a private rental. And there was another passenger on board. It’s just the name wasn’t listed. It was paid for by a company called lethe unlimited. Why does that name sound familiar? Because it was a parent company for a clinic in scarsdale called crichton-clark. Why does — I know that name from somewhere. It burned down before you got to port charles, but drew was held captive there, nina was a patient, along with a lot of other people. That’s it. Now I know where I know that name from. From when I was searching for nina’s daughter. Okay, well, do you think you know anybody that worked at crichton-clark? Actually, I just might. I’m so glad to be out socializing. It is a welcome break from heartache. Ellie is adamant that our parting be permanent. So please tell me that you are luckier than I am in the romance department. You know, I hate to break it to you, spinelli, but, yeah, I can say I’m luckier than you. Okay. Yeah, willow and i are together, and we couldn’t be happier. Well, I’ll drink to that.

[ Chuckles ] Talk to me, willow. Chase moved out. There’s obviously huge changes in your relationship with michael. Brook lynn implied that there was some — some big developments, but she wouldn’t go into any detail, so I thought I’d come to the source. What’s going on? It’s really complicated, and I definitely could have handled things better. But let’s talk in the next day or two, after carly’s party. You got it, kiddo. But just — just so I’m clear, you and michael are a couple? We are. Oh. You know what? I — chase is a great guy, and I’m really sorry that things didn’t work out there. But — but honestly, between you and me, I’ve always felt in my heart that you and michael belong together. We agree. It just took us a while to figure it out. Well, you look happy, so I’m happy for you.

[ Both chuckle ] I can’t wait to marry jason. It’s just been a whirlwind trying to get everything ready. Is that all it is? Well, mom’s just been really busy. I mean, yes, maxie’s planning the wedding, but there’s still a million details to sort out and decisions to make. She’s helping me get set up for pcu. Her and my dad, there’s tension there. You and jax are having issues? Really? You said we were supposed to have fun. Why did you bring that up? I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I should have kept my mouth shut. You know, mom and dad fight all the time, and they work it out. They always do. Mm-hmm. Look, I still care about nina. Knowing that I hurt her was bad enough. I just don’t want to see her get hurt again. What is it you want to know? Well, when was the last time you spoke with her? I don’t hear from her all that often. Just a text here and there about how happy she is. With her new boyfriend? She doesn’t really say very much. The last time nina and i had a heart-to-heart, she was pretty evasive about him. Phyllis: Right before his diagnosis, lenny decided to live in the moment. He was gonna take me dancing. I was on my way to buy a new dress when dr. Ford showed up, and our lives changed. You know what, phyllis, I’m gonna do everything I can to honor… …lenny’s memory. I know you will, mike. And I hope you’ll try to do that, too. So… where were you? I was trying to reach you, but — I’m sorry that I just — I ran out on you like that last night. We’re supposed to be living in the present. Yeah, well, you are, but I’m still struggling. When I saw your watch last night, a piece of your past, it made me stop… …and think, for once — think. Did you come to any conclusions? Do I have to find out who I am in order for you to move forward with me?

[ Laughs ] What can I say? I was motivated. Besides, what’s the point of renovating the whole pool if you’re not gonna use it? And honestly, I really wanted to wish you happy. Honey, no one deserves it more than you. That’s sweet.

[ Chuckles ] I’m not sweet. Neither are you. We tell it like it is. That’s the first thing I liked about you. Well, since we’re telling it like it is… mm-hmm. …I thought you’d think it was too soon after sonny. Oh. You know, maybe if it was anybody else, I would think that you were acting out of grief or you were afraid to be alone, and then I would have been wrestling with myself, “should I say something or keep my big mouth shut?” But — but jason, you’ve known him forever. You know what you’re getting. Also, you’re getting the quartermaines as in-laws, so, uh…

[ Laughs ] Oh, god. …Good luck with that. Hey, they’re your in-laws, too.

[ Laughs ] Yes. We’ll be allies. Always. Sasha, everything okay? I ran into brando in the restaurant. He is on a job. Wouldn’t tell me what it is. And you really think brando’s working for the mob again? Carly: What? He’s not. Brando made it very clear that he is done. But there was a part of brando that liked the excitement of working undercover for sonny. What if he is revisiting that part of his life, getting in deep again under the guise of wanting to support me and the baby? You’re kidding, right? No, I wish I were, man.

[ Laughs ] Got any advice?

[ Clears throat ] I’m sorry. Um… you got to bite the bullet. Do what you were hired to do. Make that money. Pay for that baby, man.

[ Sighs ] Can you just arrest me instead? Not unless you break the law.

[ Sighs ] Hey, n’neka, I got some business to take care of. You okay by yourself? It’s all good. Okay. Look, I know that you and my mom never expected to get to this place, but now that you’re here, I know that you’ll be good for each other. Perhaps it’s fate. Destiny. And if it is, how wonderful that it’s carly.

[ Footsteps approach ] Incoming. We found it. Here’s the groom. And a bachelor party that is crying out for some action. I told brando that if he wanted to be part of my life and the baby’s, he couldn’t work for you and jason anymore. He’s not. I heard you and brando at his garage the other night. He was promising to let your business associates know that he was open for business, and you thanked him for helping you. Brando offered to listen, that’s all. He’s not gonna put himself in danger. Well, what if the danger shows up anyway? What if brando just can’t say no? Brando is crazy about you and the baby. You have to trust him. I mean, how else will you have a family if you don’t? I just got a text. The entertainment is here! Oh, god. Hey, owen! Cut the lights!

[ Light switches click ]

[ Laughs ]

[ Chuckling ] Oh, no! -Oh, my god. -[ Laughs ] Oh!

Only thing on my mind

hey, yeah

everyone’s on the floor

hey, yeah

that’s what I’ve been waiting for

who might be able to give us a little bit morhe and drewwere such good friends. I’m sorry I’m late. I filled curtis in on the information we got on drew’s plane crash, and I figured he’d want to know since he and drew were such good friends. Anyway, I mentioned crichton-clark to him, and he said the name sounded familiar, and it turns out that he knew someone who worked there who might be able to give us a little bit more information on what went down at the clinic. That’s good. It’s great. Dante… you haven’t been listening to a word that I’ve said. I have, I have. I heard everything. No, no, you haven’T. I’m sorry. I’m just a little distracted by a story I heard. No kidding. About what? About what’s going on at the metro court pool right now at carly’s bachelorette party.

Nothing wrong with just a little fun

[ Cheering ]

And I know the deejay’s bobbie: Go get ’em, tiger!

[ Laughter, cheering ]

Hey, hey, yeah

Everyone’s on the floor olivia: Hey! And that’s how it’s done, ladies and gentlemen! There you have it!

I want some more

when the party is finally over -whoo-hoo-hoo! -[ Laughs ] Josslyn: Don’t get too close.

[ Laughter ] This is a private party, sir. I’m afraid you and your friends need to come back another night. Aw, come on. There’s plenty of room for us. We promise not to disturb the private party. I’ll take care of this. Just like you took care of me? Strong-arming my uncle into sending me out of the country? A round of top-shelf whiskey for the room. I want to toast the groom since I won’t be at his wedding tomorrow. I’ll be in…siberia. Hey, joey, aren’t you going to poland? To the lucky groom and his gorgeous bride, carly, who is as hot as they come. Okay, that’s enough. You agree with me, right? Carly corinthos is quite the babe. Stop this vulgarity at once!

[ Laughs ] We were just on our way out. We were? Mr. Novak and his friends hereare gonna drink on me.

[ Sighs ] Let’s go. Hey, morgan, how’s it feel to be hitting your dead boss’s wife? Feel good? Like you won a stuffed toy at the fair? You cretin!

[ Punch lands ]

[ Cheers and applause ] I honestly had no idea I was performing for carly. My boss only told me to show up at the metro court pool. Well, I’m the one that called the agency, ordered a stripper. I had no idea it was you who was gonna come and entertain us. How badly did you want to die when you saw all of us? I was hoping the ground would swallow me up.

[ Laughter ] Bobbie: But we’re glad it didn’t ’cause you were really good. I’ll second that. I’m sure you need a drink after your performance. We both do. Well, here you go. You deserve it. Hey. Hey. Are you okay? Sure. Why wouldn’t I be? Who knew brando was so gifted, huh? Well, you know, I’m not urging any scandalous behavior at a party where your daughter is present, but I thought you might just want to relax and cut loose a little, considering you are marrying your best friend. That’s true. I am. So what’s the problem, honey? Mike, you’ll never really… you’ll never really know how much I want you in my life. But it doesn’t seem right that you cannot remember who you were before. You have flashes of that other woman, and you know she means something to you. I don’t even know if that woman is real. But you won’t know until you learn who you really are. I’m mike. That’s who I am. I’m the guy who cares about you. I get that you, you know, you don’t want my past life crashing down on you. You don’t want to be hurt again. That’s why you came to nixon falls — to let go of your past. So you understand? Well, yeah. And I’m gonna do everything I can to prove to you that I do. I don’t know how I’m gonna do it. But I will. Because I’m in — I’m in love with you. Nina probably wants to keep the new part of her life separate from the old one. Does it really surprise you that she might want to make a fresh start with mike? Mike? Does he have a last name? Well, I’m sure he does, jax. I don’t know what it is. And you didn’t ask? Nina has made an art out of skillfully avoiding my questions about him. Now, here you are, interrogating me about a man neither of us has ever met. Do you want to tell me what this is really about?

ms. Caulfield, my name is curtis ashford. I’m not sure if you remember me. Of course I remember you, mr. Ashford. You’re the private investigator who tracked me down and put me back in touch with nina reeves. How can I help you? Um, well, I’m not a private investigator anymore, but I’m looking into something for a friend. It involves the facility where you worked when you were nina’s nurse. Oh, crichton-clark?

That’s the one. By any chance, are you still in touch with anyone who worked with you there? I wasn’t there that long. Besides, I was a private nurse, so I didn’t really know any of the other staff. Okay, well, maybe you can think on it and give me a call?

Wait. There is someone. He friended me on social media a while back. Olivia hires a random stripper from some agency that happens to be brando? That is priceless. Come on, the guy’s just making some extra money for his baby. No, no, I’m not laughing at him. I think he should be proud. I think there’s something really charming about a guy who’s willing to do whatever it takes to provide for his child. I mean, you would, wouldn’t you? Well, thankfully, I have a job where I get to keep my clothes on…

[ Groans ] …And provide for my kid just fine. That is too bad. Too bad? Mm-hmm.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

[ Groans ]

[ Sighs ] Damn it. Mm-hmm. Work. I got to go to work. Mm-hmm. Hmm. I, uh… I hope to see you again soon, sam. You can count on it. I’m worried about nina. That’s all. And I know that you tried to steer her in the right direction when it came to dealing with carly, so… I did. I did try. But apparently, nina did not take my advice about making nice with carly. Apparently, she did the opposite. What do you mean? Well, something happened some time ago. I was mad, and I told carly that as a grandparent in the state of new york, nina has the right to sue for visitation with wiley. And then I guess, shortly after that, nina called carly, and carly was all fired up and went for the jugular. That’s what nina told you? Words to that effect. Everybody knows that nina was wrong to tell wiley about nelle. She knows it. She regrets what she did. But carly is carly. She rarely gives anybody a second chance. Believe me, I know. I guess I threw you a curveball. I’m sorry. Just — it’s the way I feel. You know, I-I really couldn’t go another minute without telling you. I don’t know what to say. You don’t have to say anything. Now you see why I was being mysterious about my new job? Yeah, I didn’t think you’d be a fan of my dancing. But no worries, it’s just one of my side gigs. Oh, what are the others? Centerfold modeling? Escort service? Ha ha ha. Try cleaning the deep fryer at kelly’s and after-hours custodial work at a bunch of offices downtown. Um, I’m sorry if I embarrassed you tonight. Bet the money’s good. Oh, it’s really good. But if you don’t like it, I will — I will quit right now, because what you and I have is a hell of a lot more worth it than this performance tonight. I hate myself for enjoying brando’s performance so much.

[ Chuckles ] You and me both.

[ Laughs ] Honey, honey, when I was your age, it was considered empowering for women to go to a strip joint. It was like women could enjoy a good striptease just as much as the men did, you know? I can only imagine the men back then — the hair. Oh, the fake tans, the screaming women. It was — well, it sounds like you did a lot of clubbing, olivia. Bite your tongue, honey. I was a very good catholic girl. Mm. The only thing that I knew about strip joints and what went on inside of them was — was what I read about.

[ Laughter ] Okay. You know, when I think back to you and jason when michael was just a baby, it was just the two of you. I used to get so worried and frustrated with you at times, I wanted to tear my hair out.

[ Both laugh ] Can’t say I blame you. Jason was always there for you. He always believed the best in you. And to be fair, no matter how much the rest of us doubted you, you justified that faith. And now, after all these years, you and jason are getting married.

[ Chuckles ] And tomorrow, you’re gonna step into your new life as husband and wife. Honey, that is the sweetest kind of love there is. Thank you, mom.

I am calling my boss right nowand telling him this was my last gig as a stripper. Don’t you dare. Compared to working for cyrus renault, this is the safest job in the world. Oh. So, um, you’re okay with women stuffing bills into my costume?

[ Chuckles ] They can stuff as many bills as they want, as long as you always come home to me. Who was your friend, and what did he do at the clinic? He worked in the records department. Would he be able to help you? He just might. Um, text me his contact information and tell him to expect my call. Of course. If your friend can help, ms. Caulfield, this could be a very big deal. Michael: Here. You did most of the heavy lifting — or, should I say, heavy punching. Party’s over. Let’s go. Come on. If that’s not enough to cover everything, just let me know. I’m sorry this happened on your watch.

I’m sorry. Once the fight started, I had to follow the rules. Uh, what rules? I got called about a disturbance. What the hell happened here? I was raising a toast to my pal jason, and this little dweeb went off on me. Oh, come on. You deliberately baited him. You denigrated the bride-to-be. I did nothing of the kind. I was complimenting her. Alright. Alright. Alright! Shut up! I’m just gonna take you all down to the station. Actually, we have a wedding to attend tomorrow. Oh, well, then maybe you’ll think more clearly in the morning. There was a time when all I wanted was to marry jason. I lied and schemed. Left a trail of wreckage. And now, years after I have more than let that fantasy go, it’s really happening. It’S…

[ Sighs ] Yeah. Well, you know, you and jason have something magical. And jason would do anything for you. And I don’t know why that is. I never have. I just know that jason has always been there for me. And even when he thinks I’m wrong, he’s there. Loving you as you deserve to be loved. I’m a lucky woman. You’re a lucky bride.

[ Both laugh ] You don’t have to pretend you have feelings for me if you don’t have them. I mean, maybe you will one day, maybe you won’t, but I… it just feels good for me to tell you how I feel. So I’m gonna leave you with that, okay? Okay. I guess nina and carly have been able to smooth things over since nina has been able to see wiley again. But I get the sense that it is a fragile peace, which is another argument for nina to stay in nixon falls. She’s much less likely to cross paths with carly there. Yeah, it certainly seems that way. Well, thanks, ava, for taking the time to talk to me. Appreciate it. So, what are you gonna do? Well, what can I do except to try to make sure that nina is happy and safe? Get the jet ready. We’re going to nixon falls, pennsylvania.
