THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
[ Screams ] You got this.
[ Straining ] Hey, you got this, ok? Before you know it, you’ll have a baby in your arms and we’ll be a family.
[ Groans, panting ] I like the sound of that. Me, too. Mm-hmm.
[ Groans, inhales sharply ]
[ Exhales sharply ] Dr. Navarro, I’ve been trying to track you down. Talk to me. It’s sasha gilmore. I’ve been keeping an eye on her vitals and the baby’s, but I’m worried something is seriously wrong.
[ Grunting ] Willow. Willow. Willow. Hey.
[ Panting ] Michael! Hi. I was just… working out. Yeah, you were. I just — I’ve never seen you hit the heavy bag before. Yeah, this was my…first time. I didn’t know what I was missing. Punching things can be fun. [ Grunts ] Brook lynn: And as my, um, due date got closer, the more unsure I got. And I knew I couldn’t back out of the deal, but I just — I couldn’t share the birth with valentin. It was just too intimate. I would be too vulnerable. So I told everyone I was going to brooklyn. My friend cece helped me cover, and I-I got a room in a hotel. In ithaca. Why a hotel and not a hospital? I couldn’t risk valentin being able to track me down, so I had the doula meet me in the hotel, and I ended up giving birth that night. Story doesn’t add up. What are you hiding, brook lynn? If it was me — if it was just me, fine. We could keep things the way they are, but there are two other people we have to think about… please, valentin — …charlotte and bailey. And for them, I need to know. Bailey’s isn’t mine, is she? This is so much more complicated than you think. The hell it is. You just need to look in my eyes and tell me that bailey is my daughter. I’m so sorry. I can’T. Brook lynn, it’s me. Call me back. I need you to tell me gladys hasn’t ruined everything.
[ Elevator bell dings ] Hey. What are you doing here? Well, ava tipped me off that sasha was in labor.
[ Sighs ] What is it? What’s wrong? No — is it the baby? I don’t know anything about sasha or the baby. Ok, then what is it? Me. And my plan to protect louise from peter. It’s falling apart. Carly. Don’t worry about it. It was an accidental meeting, nobody got hurt. Not tonight, but you got hurt. I did, too. Our whole family was hurt. Don’t you get that? Why are you defending nina? I’m not defending nina. I know people got hurt. I’m just preventing any more hurt that — now that it’s over. It’s not over, sonny, and it’s never gonna be over so long as there’s no consequences for what nina did. You get that right? Please help me understand here.
[ Water dripping ] At what point are you going to admit we’re hopelessly lost? At what point are you gonna shut your mouth? So that’s a “never”? I know what I’m doing. Britt: Why is there so much loose dirt down here? What’s going on? I’ll tell you what’s going on. Of course you will. This tunnel is dangerously unstable. Ok, we got a problem. Just one? Spinelli gave me the layout of the island, but it’s a satellite view and I know that the tunnels exist, but… but as far as which one is which… I have no idea where peter went.
They used this one. How do you know? Look, you may be an expert hitman, but I got a little experience tracking people. The department of the navy made sure of that. My contribution to this adventure. Alright, lead the way. Obrecht: One false move or a particularly loud noise? We’ll all be buried alive. Are your dire warnings intended to discourage me, liesl? They’re intended to save our lives. Listen to her, peter. You may hate my mother, but you know she’s smart. Thank you, tochter. Smart. She’s determined to stop me. She’ll tell any lie to slow us down. She’s not lying about the loose dirt. Come on. Think about it. This island belongs to the cassadines. So? So not well known for planning. They want a tunnel, they dig a tunnel. They don’t — they don’t think about shoring it up or maintaining it, for that matter. The cassadines were fleeing the russian revolution. This tunnel could be more than 100 years old. I know you’re arrogant, but even you can’t argue with geology or gravity. We have to leave. Chase: Yeah. Hey. Y-yeah, no, I-I know I’m still on desk duty, but I was hoping you could, uh, do me a solid and look something up for me. Awesome. Uh, I need the easypass records brook lynn quartermaine’s vehicle. The date is may 27th of this year. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’ll hold. I’m so sorry. I lied to you. No. No, I need to hear you say the words. Bailey isn’t your daughter. I never meant for this to go so long. For months and months and months, you have watched me pour my heart into that little girl! I swear, valentin, I thought it would be over before you fell in love with her. Before —
[Crying] I was in love with her the moment I knew she existed. That child is everything to me. And now gladys is gonna open her big mouth and let valentin know that bailey is not really his.
[ Sighs ] I could have told you using kip wouldn’t end well. A little too late. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Ok, maybe there’s no reason to totally panic yet, right? I mean, gladys doesn’t know everything. She doesn’t know that bailey is really louise. Yeah, that’s right. The crucial information is contained. Ok, so this could be a good thing, right? I mean, you were the one that tried to convince me to pull valentin in on the secret. You said he could actually be an ally. I did, but maxie — I know it’s going to be a huge blow, finding out that bailey is not really his. Monumental. But maybe after he processes it a-and realizes that brook lynn and i only did this to protect louise from peter, he’ll — he’ll want to help me. He’ll understand. Wouldn’t that be great? That would be great, but I’m afraid it’s highly unlikely. There isn’t anything to understand, carly. We — there’s been so much pain in the last year with our family as it is. I know, but the pain isn’t gonna go away as long as nina has a relationship with wiley. And clearly, she’s gonna stake her claim as his grandmother. So accidental or not, this just proves that michael was right to push to have the charges against nina in pennsylvania. Yeah, but if he would asked me, I would have said to him, he’s just making things more complicated. Ok, um… I don’t get it. This isn’t you. The one thing we have always agreed on is that if someone comes at us, we’re gonna come back twice as hard to make sure nobody comes at us ever again. And I’m not talking about sending a message here. I’m talking about justice, sonny. Why would you deny yourself or your family that kind of justice after what nina did to you? Because if we destroy nina… I would be… denying who I’ve become.
[ Breathing shakily ] There you go. Just breathe.
[ Whimpers ] Breathe. You’re doing great, babe. There you go. Hello, everyone. Just breathe. I hear things are progressing in here? Yeah, it looks like it. Ugh, feels like it, too.
[ Inhales sharply ]
[ Monitor beeping ]
[ Whimpers ]
[ Inhales sharply ]
[ Groans ] Ok. I’d like to run some tests and do a quick ultrasound to see how things are going. Tests? Is everything ok? That’s what we want to confirm. W-whatever you think is best. Great. You’ll get her prepped? Elizabeth: Yes. It’s ok.
[ Groans ]
[ Whimpers ]
Hold up. Wait, wait. Hold up. They s topped hereand may have, uh — looks like they stood around for a little bit and then kept going. And there is another man, because there’s extra boot prints. Peter picked up a guard to help him. Well, we got another problem. This tunnel is in a really bad shape. Yeah, I noticed. Loud noises like, say, gunfire is gonna up the chances of a total collapse. So we have to take peter and the guard hand-to-hand. Ok, what if — what if it’s not hand-to-hand? Well, every gunshot is just gonna… make this place more unstable. So, uh, what brought on the sudden urge to go to town on the heavy bag like that? I thought you were taking wiley to the fall fair in rice plaza. I did take him. That’s what brought on this sudden desire for a workout. Ok?
[ Sighs ] Nina was there. Did she approach you? Wiley made the first move. He saw her, he wanted to go to her, and… I let him. Go ahead. Tell me how much you hate that. Well, I hate the idea of nina being anywhere near our son, but, uh… I wasn’t there, so… thank you. But I-I — I tried to keep it low key. Wiley and I had a hot chocolate with nina, then I sent him off to be with cindy. Cindy — he knows her from day care at the hospital. And when nina and i were alone, I told her that…
[ Sighs ] I hate what she did, and I don’t think she should see wiley for the time being, but that I wasn’t going to confuse wiley by dragging him away from her — you know, punish him for her bad choices. And how’d — how did she take that?
[ Sighs ] She was… appropriately remorseful. Now, at the same time, I don’t think nina even begins to grasp just how selfish and horrible she was or how much damage she’s done.
[ Sighs ] Anyway, cindy brought wiley back. All I wanted to do was take him home, and just as we were saying our goodbyes, your mom showed up and…
[Inhales deeply ] Jumped to the wrong conclusion. How wrong? Carly was gonna call the cops on nina for stalking wiley. Well, go mom. Michael! They — look — ok, I-I know, I know, it would have just made a bad situation even worse. It’s just that — I mean, I could — I could still enjoy the fantasy, can’t I? Sure. Yeah, you can enjoy it. You weren’t the one standing in the middle of rice plaza trying to stop your mom from having nina dragged away in handcuffs in front of wiley. Ugh! I need more time on the heavy bag. No, actually, uh… I have a better idea.
[ Monitor beeping ] Dr. Navarro: Ok. Looks like it’s time to get moving. Have the or prepped right away. Got it. Or?! What’s going on? Is something wrong with the baby? Sasha, we need to prep you for an emergency c-section. What?! No, no, I’m fine to continue to labor, I —
[ Yells ] I know this wasn’t your plan, and under normal circumstances, we’d do everything we could to avoid surgery, but you’re suffering from a placental abruption and the baby needs to come out now. Ms. Spencer! Oh. It’s good to see you again. Thank you. Uh, y-you know, forgive me for making a beeline for the coffee, but I’m headed to rice plaza and I just came off a double shift at gh. Where — oh, and everyone was raving about your wife, by the way. I think you mean my ex-wife.
[ Gasps ] Oh! And that’s why I need caffeine. I am so sorry. Don’t be.
[ Sighs ] Clearly, my mind isn’t as sharp after a long day. No, it’s ok. Really. Thank you. You know, just for the record, I love the way willow makes michael happy, but I hate the way you got hurt in the process. You’re a good man, detective chase. And you have been a particularly good friend to maxie and lulu. I hope that coffee works its magic. Me, too.
[ Cellphone chimes ] Can I get a large coffee to go? Beechers corners? What was she doing there? Oh! Hey, I don’t know who you’re referring to, but beechers corners happens to be a lovely place. You’ve been? Yeah, right before memorial day. I know you’re upset. You have every right to be. Don’t! Don’t tell me how I can feel. But you have to understand, this was never my intention. I don’t care about your intentions. This is where we are now. When I think about the sleepless nights, the stories, the shared moments — that was all real. How? How is it real?! Because it happened. You’re not who I thought you were. I don’t even know what you are. You watched as I bonded with this child. My 12-year-old daughter thinks she has a sister, and for what?! Some stock! The brook lynn I thought I knew would never have done that. She didn’T.
I’m not tryingto burst your bubble. You were the one who advocated for me to tell valentin the truth. I did. I did. But if you told him back then, months ago, when I told you that, then I am sure valentin would have been supportive. Not only would he have kept that secret, but he would have made sure that it was airtight. But maxie! You and brook lynn made valentin fall in love with that baby.
[ Telephones ringing in distance ]
[ Sighs ] What? Just like I made sonny fall in love with me. Ok. Not ideal or advised, but when it comes to the truth, isn’t it, like, better late than never? That’s what people say, right? Tell the truth. But I learned the hard way, they’re only talking about the immediate truth. Hidden truths become secret, and those only leave pain and chaos in their wake.
[ Sighs ] I want to understand what’s going on with you, but you’re gonna have to walk me through it. Ok, how can nina facing justice for what she did to our family be denying who you’ve become?
[ Sighs ] Carly… I was gone for 9 months. I know. And… [ Sighs ] You know, at that time, I was — I was living another life. We both were. And I can’t just believe that it — it’s just gonna go back to normal and nothing, you know, has changed. I —
[ Sighs ] It’s hard for me, you know what I mean? Yes, but things — things have gone back to normal. We are the same people that we were. I mean, we’re the same couple. I — I — I — for the better part of the year, I was — I was another person. Ok? And that — that time doesn’t just vanish from my mind. In nixon falls, I didn’t know about sonny corinthos, but here I know that I was “mike,” and he’s still part of me. And for 9 months, what kept me alive, centered, and safe was the friendships that I had with… with lenny, phyllis, and nina. And I just can’t change the fact that… for just, you know — up until a couple of weeks ago, nina was…
[Voice breaking] T-the one friend that I had in the whole world. You spent time in beechers corners last may. Was it a vacation? N– no — uh, well —
[ Sighs ] You know, I suppose there’s no reason to be keeping it a secret at this point. I was supposed to meet maxie there. Like a final hurrah before the baby was born? No, not exactly. Um… maxie had figured out the truth about peter, but she knew if she tried to end the relationship, there would be… issues. That’s putting it mildly. Yeah. So she asked me there in a professional capacity. As a nurse? Yeah. The plan was for me to deliver maxie’s baby in secret. You know, this took me by surprise, too. Don’t you compare our experiences. They are nothing alike. I know! I’m just — I’m trying to explain myself. Can I do that? Please? It started out with like, “oops, I’m pregnant, and valentin thinks he’s the father.” You led me to believe I was the father. So I did something I’m not proud of. Ok? I used the situation to my advantage so that I could get
elq back. But I was clueless. I had no idea how you’d be as a father, I — I had no idea how you’d be as a partner. I thought that you’d just give me child support and leave. Which, by the way, if you’d accepted, would have been fraud. But go ahead. Do you remember moving in? Do I remember moving in to the quartermaine mansion?! I mean me. How opposed to it I was. Why do you think that is? What started out as a stupid means to an end turned into you and your daughter moving into my home
[Crying] With my family — our family, the four of us, and I was like, “what am I doing?” But it was just — it was too late. And then gladys found out the truth and she started blackmailing me, and I-I had to let her. I had no choice. I never intended to hurt you. Congratulations. This is new. I don’t suppose you know where we are. Oh, for the millionth time, stop talking! Or I will kill one of you! Ok, on that note, will you please stop antagonizing him? I’m not antagonizing him. I’m telling him the truth. This whole place could come crumbling down at any time, and this dummkopf is leading us nowhere. Britta was right. We must turn back. No! We’re not going back. We’re getting the hell out of here. We’re going to the harbor and we’re getting on a boat. And then we’re going to the rendezvous point, where drew will be bringing maxie to me and I will be getting everything I want! Drew: Yeah, that is not gonna happen. What is placental — abruption. It means the placenta is separating from the uterus. Sasha: When?! I’m guessing right before your water broke. Wait, wait, wait! The — the placenta is how the baby eats and gets oxygen. Yes, that’s why we need to do a c-section. Is — is our son ok? We’re doing everything in our power to make sure of that. We can give you an epidural, but you will be conscious. Just take care of the baby. The plan is to take care of both of you.
[ Sighs ] Which or? Elizabeth: Four. Let’s go. You made a real point about saying “both of you.” Is sasha in danger, too?
Doctor, hey, level with me. Is sasha’s life at risk, too? It’s too early to say, but obstetrical hemorrhage is a very real complication from placental abruption, which is why we can’t waste any time. Well, maybe it would help if I went with you. As in “valentin might go easier on me”? Well, he won’t kill you ’cause there’s a witness.
[ Chuckles ] It’s possible.
[ Sasha groaning, stretcher rolling ] Brando, hey. What’s wrong? Is sasha ok? No. Sasha could lose the baby, and I could lose them both. What the hell are you doing here? I’m taking britt and her mom off this island, and if I kill you in the process, that — that’s just a bonus.
[ Gunshot ]
[ Screaming ]
[ Gunfire ] How you wanna handle this guy? Whatever peter’s paying you, is it worth dying for him? I don’t think so. Go, get out! You guys ok? We are now.
[ Clears throat ] That was my perfectly normal response to the fact that you’re not dead. Where — where’s peter? I hate being stuck in the middle. It’d be so much easier if nina just moved far away, like new zealand or… at least california. Prison works. Even if nina goes to prison, she will still have legal rights as wiley’s grandmother. Well, it’d be hard to exercise those rights if she’s in prison. Uh, nina has money and lawyers, and if she lands in prison, she will have nothing but time. Think about it, michael. Do you really want to take wiley to go see nina in some prison visiting room? No, of course not.
[ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ] The fact is, nina is wiley’s grandmother, and she will always have those ties to him unless she chooses to sever those ties. And an all-out visitation war over wiley can only hurt him. So for his sake, I just want to find a way for all of us to coexist. Is that so impossible to understand? Hey, no, I — I understand. I just — I don’t agree.
[ Sighs ] Maxie didn’t want to have her baby in the hospital? Well, it wasn’t so much about the venue. Because of peter. Yeah, well, peter was watching her like a hawk at the time. My guess is she wanted to keep her options open. Your guess? Look, all maxie told me was she was determined not to let peter raise her baby. So whether that meant going on the run or putting louise up for adoption… best laid plans, right? I mean, all that strategizing to try and keep peter away from her baby and now maxie has no idea where she is. It’s good to see you. I gotta go.
[ Crying ] I’m just — I’m devastated. I just don’t know how else to put it. I’m sorry. Because I love her so completely, and if I’m not her father,
[Sobs] What do I do with that?! Oh, god. I wanted to watch her grow up so bad! Well, you could still do that. How?! As what?! I’m not her father! I don’t know how I’m gonna tell charlotte. We can do it together. No! I don’t want you anywhere near my daughter. Valentin — charlotte and i will mourn what you have stolen from us, and then, by god, I will mourn you, too.
[ Sighs ]
Ok, I… knew that nina was a presence in nixon falls, for months. And, of course, that…
[ Sighs ] …You saw her. But this is the first I’m hearing that… you consider nina your friend. Nina is — no, no, no. Nina is not my friend. I didn’t say that. She’s like — you — look, I — when I didn’t know who she was or what she did to me or my family when I was mike… listen — bobbie: I’m sorry I’m late. I ran into — oh. Am I interrupting? No, that’s alright. I know that you guys have plans, right? Yeah. Um… yeah. I’ll let you guys… I’ll see you later, ok? Alright. Hey. Hey. Is everything ok? I don’t know. So, nina is — is counting on you to coexist. Counting on you to put all of her mistakes in the past. That way, when anybody, you know, approaches her — holds her accountable, like my mom o-or me, you know, we’re — we’re — we’re unreasonable, right? W-we’re vindictive. And then just like that, she flips the script. She flips the script and then she goes from being a-a borderline psycho, liar — someone w-who kept my dad a virtual prisoner for 9 months to —
[ Both sigh ] You know, I-I don’t — I don’t — I don’t want to go down — I don’t wanna go down this rabbit hole. I-I don’t — [ Sighs ] I don’t wanna waste this moment with you. You are beautiful a-and sweaty
[ Laughs ] And — and — and throwing punches. I-I don’t wanna waste it on — on anyone, least of all nina reeves. Who? Exactly. I don’t wanna — I don’t wanna… think so much about the things that I hate that I-I miss —
[ Sighs ] I miss what I love. And what I love is standing in front of me. I’m trying to act brave for sasha, but I am terrified. Of course you are. What if something happens? What if they can’t get to him in time? What if something — what if she doesn’t — no, stop. You cannot think like that. Maxie’s right. Sasha is incredibly resilient. And so are you. You know what that means? Your baby is a badass, too. Did you find baby names yet? Well, you know what? Badass corbin has a really nice ring to it. Um, I-I guess I should, uh, head to the or, because they said I could be there for surgery. Hey, can I walk with you? I’ve had an emergency c-section, so maybe I can tell you what to expect. Yeah, I’d appreciate that. Please keep me updated, ok? And… tell sasha I love her.
[ Water running ]
[ Monitor beeping ]
[ Thud ]
[ Paper crinkles ] I admired you. I felt lucky — like we were kindred spirits, like we understood one another. And you were gracious to charlotte. I thought you were a good influence to her, but I was wrong. It was all a lie. You’re smoke and you’re mirrors, that’s all you are. You’re just smoke and mirrors. You saw the damage you were doing and you just stood by and did nothing. You just let it roll and go on and on and on — that’s not what happened! Yeah, it is. There’s a huge piece of this that you don’t understand. That schwein peter must have run away during all the commotion. Yeah, we know he’s not headed toward the house. Peter doesn’t know where he’s headed. He was hopelessly lost. Well, which isn’t so surprising. This place is a maze. How did you find us? Drew was able to track you. Of course. Congratulations on overcoming the conditioning. Nah, credit goes to jason. No, actually. Credit goes to britt. She found a way to give me the card from peter, and… I know. I was just trying to be inclusive. Drew, can you pick up peter’s trail? We need to find him. Yeah. Can you guys find your way back? You all may not know this, but one of my minor phds was in geology. Way to slip that in, mother. These tunnels are on the brink of collapse. Yeah, and that gunfire did not help the situation, it made it exponentially worse. If we want to get out alive, we need to go now. Ok, let’s go. Let’s go, come on. Get down!
[ Gunfire ] Drew: Down, down down! Now!
So you can bounce this has nothing to do with jason. O pry… please, mom, I need you to pry.
[ Sighs ] Honey? Yeah? I’m not trying to pry… please, mom, I need you to pry. I am concerned. Things seem so tense between you and sonny. Is it so awkward because of what happened between you and jason? No, no. We…talked about that. We’re all on the same page. This has nothing to do with jason. Well, that is a relief. ‘Cause take it from me, there’s nothing worse than feeling like there’s a third person in your marriage. We are so lucky to have each other. And wiley. We should just focus on that, and just be here now, and not worry about everything else. Or at least until the next time nina comes calling? Ugh! What if she shows up on thanksgiving? Just drops by to give something to wiley?
[ Sighs ] Well, what if — what if wiley’s not home? I me, what if — what if he’s in new york city with us. We’re going to new york city? We could. You ever been to the thanksgiving day parade? Not in person. Well, this could be the year, yeah? You, me, and wiley, we can — we can go to the parade, rockefeller center, and central park. We could go see a show. Yeah, we could see a show. Any — any show that you want. Your pick. Are we really doing this? Yeah, let’s — let’s just get away from this — this miserable situation, you know, and just… have an amazing thanksgiving weekend. You, me, and wiley. All you gotta do is say yes. Yes. Yeah?
[ Giggles ] Hey, johnny. I think I’ll mix it up today, have a vodka soda with lemon. You got it. Nina: You are gonna be a fantastic mother. I hope so. I know so.
[ Laughs ] Well, if that is true, then it is in large part because of you. It may not have been real… but you showed me what it looked like to be a kind and loving mother. And even after you knew what I had done, when you should have despised me, you still showed me compassion. Hey, uh, is phyllis around? She stepped out, but she should be back soon. Oh, ok. Thanks.
[ Monitor beeping ] Brando! Hey, I’m right here. How you feeling?
[ Groans ] Numb. You know, you’re the bravest person I’ve ever met.
[ Laughs weakly ] This is it. What does that mean? It’s time for your baby to be born. Sasha, here we go. You may feel some pressure. You got this.
[ Laughs ] I’m not doing anything. You know what I mean.
[ Laughs ] He’s here! Oh, my god! That’s our — that’s our son! That’s our son. Can I hold him? What’s happening? Hey, what’s wrong with our baby? What’s wrong with our baby?!
[ Breathing heavily ]
[ Crying ] Am I a screw-up?
[ Crying ] Yeah. Am I short-sighted and selfish? 100%. But there’s a legitimate reason why I couldn’t tell you the truth.
[ Knock on door, door opens ] Well, now, detective chase, just in time. What for? The latest bombshell. It turns out brook lynn’s been lying to me. I’m not bailey’s father after all. Yes, I’m aware. You told him? No, never. I-I didn’t tell anyone. I know you’re not bailey’s father… because I am.
[ Gunfire ] Stop shooting or this place will cave in! Drew, get ’em out of here, now! Go! We gotta go now! No! I’m not leaving jason! Please!
[ Shouts ]
[ Rumbling ] Jason! Jason!
On the next “General Hospital” —
