THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Part of this is missing due to news interruption; we’ll have it up soon.
what did scout do when she saw him? Drew’s alive after all this time. I know. It was… incredible to see him. What did scout do when she saw him? She didn’t recognize him. It was a lot for her to take in, but she’ll come around. Yeah, I’m sure she will. Jason is the one who saved drew. Well, britt westbourne and her mother as well. Say what you will about jason, and I have, he is reliable in a crisis. While jason was able to save drew… he wasn’t able to save himself. Mom, jason’s dead. Hey, there you are. What took you so long? Well, uh — never mind. Hey. You will never believe who showed up on thanksgiving. Drew. Well, so if you know that, then you obviously also know… about jason. Yeah. How’s monica doing? Oh, she’s coping. I mean, luckily, she has us all here to — to help her through. I just can’t believe that jason is gone. Yeah, his death touches a lot of lives. For a guy who kept all his feelings locked in a vault, you know, a lot of people are crying their eyes out today. How did you hear about this? I mean, your text was kind of cryptic. Where did you and rocco wind up? Uh, we spent the day with sam and her kids. Valentin was worried that peterwould use bailey to hurt him. That’s what yuri was for. And now that valentin’s out of the picture, bailey is off peter’s radar. Bailey is much safer with chase pretending to be her father. Really? Because, as I recall, peter poisoned chase and tried to kill him. That was an accident. Peter was targeting chase’s brother to get back at anna. Do you not get it? Peter doesn’t care who he hurts or who he kills. Maxie, you’re making emotional arguments out of fear. You’re damn right I am. I made the mistake of thinking peter was a rational human being. Now I know better. I will not underestimate him. And neither should you. Bailey isn’t yours? How’s that possible? Usual way. I was, uh, lied to, used, so brook lynn could take back the shares of elq that she’d signed over to me. Oh, I see. So do we know who the real father is? Yeah. Harrison chase, apparently. Brook lynn was living with him, wasn’t she, when… so I guess they… yeah, apparently. On the plus side, I’ve already reacquired the shares that brook lynn stole from me, and, uh, chase may have offered me an opportunity to exact revenge. All right, I’ll bite. How? I may have said some cruel and cutting things to brook lynn, and he may have hit me. And now he’s suspended from the force. So is that the end of the warpath for you? No, I’m just getting started. And when are you planning on dealing with what really is at the heart of all this? What’s that? Being lied to? Deceived, humiliated? The emotional trauma of losing a child. If
it were up to me, I’d saylet’s get you in a wheelchair and over to the nicu. Okay, great. Let’s do it. Unfortunately, it’s not up to me. Dr. Navarro has to sign off on it, and until she’s out of surgery… can’t I just go anyway? I’m afraid you’ll have to stay put. But I promise, I will keep you posted. Dr. Navarro could be in surgery for hours. Don’t worry about a thing. I am going to take you to see our son. Want to help? Donna’s all settled. Such a blessing, that one. So beautiful. Yeah. Yeah, we think so. Look, I, um — I can’t imagine how hard this is for you. Jason was so important to so many people, especially you two, and I know that I am just a reminder of — of that profound loss. Please don’t say that. You’re alive. And that is a great comfort. Don’t think that we’ve forgotten everything you’ve done for us. We’re relieved that you survived. The only reason I’m alive is because of jason. I’m so, so sorry, honey. I know jason and I were apart for almost a year, but — I know how much you loved him. I loved him a lot. And he was danny’s father. So… poor danny. Last night must have been hell for you, and I hate the thought that you had to get news like that while you were all alone. I wasn’t alone. Dante was with me.
best I can, but in the meantime, brook lynn and chase will get what’s coming to them. Oh, stop it, for god’s sake. That’s the man you used to be. No, that’s who I am. You and I both know it. And no amount of wishing on my better angels is gonna change that. Unh-unh, no. I-I have — I know the bookends of who you are, the man that you were and the father that you are to charlotte and to bailey. I’m not bailey’s father. Well, y-you — you were until you weren’T. And I saw you with that little baby. And your heart was so full. And that love or, look, the right to that love has been taken away. And I am very sorry for that. Brook lynn fooled me for the sake of the company to get her hands on some shares. I moved into the quartermaine house to be a proper father so that I could be there day to day. But she was not mine. And if I have to hurt over and over again by everything that I’m gonna miss about that little girl, then brook lynn is going to hurt, too. That’s fair. Isn’t it? Hey. Once peter hears that valentin isn’t bailey’s father, all it’s gonna take is a few little steps for him to figure out that bailey is his. Everything that led chase to the truth is going to lead peter right here. I’m a trained detective, maxie. It’s my job. And peter is a psychopath who is obsessed with finding this one little girl. You think he’s not gonna figure this out? She is not safe with you acting as her father. Okay, then. You got a better idea? So you spent the whole day with sam and her kids? Yeah. Mm. Well, how was that? It was great. Our kids get along awesome. Well, they certainly ought to. They spend enough time together here. Yeah. We were gonna come here after we watched the parade. Yeah. Then drew showed up. Yeah. Broke the news about jason. And, uh, you know, figured sam needed someone to be there for her. Of course she did. So of course you stayed and you comforted her and you helped her sort through her feelings, right? Yeah. Yeah, something like that. Aww. That is the man that I raised. Mm-hmm. What? Well, it sounds like things must be getting pretty serious between you and sam. I know that you and drew hadn’t been together for a while before his disappearance, and I know that you loved him, I know you loved jason, and I can’t even imagine how confusing this is for you. You see, now, that’s the strangest part, because it’s not confusing at all. I mean, if anything, it actually clarifies things. I am thrilled that drew is alive. I’m devastated that jason is dead. But I also realize that I am ready to move on. Well, if you’re okay, then I’m okay. I just want you to be happy. I am happy. Now, what about you? Peter knew how to activate the conditioning, and so he, um… he wanted to put on a demonstration for jason, for britt. He had me — had me hold a knife to jason’s throat. He had me cut open my own arm. Gosh. Sick bastard. I mean, I d– I don’t remember any of it, right? But jason was paying attention, and — and he took full advantage. He saw how peter put me under and then he saw how he brought me back out. He was — he was just so convinced that the two of us could take peter down. But I just wasn’t so sure, and I told him if things went sideways that I wanted him to stop me no matter what. You mean you — to kill me. If it came to that. But instead, jason was the one who lost his life.
[ Beeping ] What the… coast is clear. Let’s move. Ms. Reeves? Why are you pushing the call button if you’re not a patient and this room is not in use? Wonderful question. See, I have a great idea, amy, and I really needed to talk to you about it. But first I had to conduct a little experiment. Which was? Which is I wanted to see how quick your response time was. Mine personally? Yes. I want to do an article about the responsiveness of nurses. You know, how long it takes for someone to get a response when they use one of these. And, amy, I’m being completely serious. You were amazing. Oh! Thanks. Well, I should get back to the nurses’ station. No, no. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Amy, no, you can’t go yet. No sign of amy or anyone else who might want to stop us. I think we’re gonna make it.
[ Gasps ] Wait just a minute. Advanced non-small cell lung cancer can change everything. But your first treatment could be a chemo-free combination of two immunotherapies that works differently. It could mean a chance to live longer. Opdivo plus yervoy is for adult s newly diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread, tests positive for pd-l1, and does not have an abnormal egfr or alk gene. It’s the only fda-approved combination of two immunotherapies. Opdivo plus yervoy equals… a chance for more time together. More family time. More quiet time. Opdivo and yervoy can cause your immune system to harm healthy parts of your body during and after treatment. These problems can be severe and lead to death. See your doctor right away if you have a cough; chest pain; shortness of breath; irregular heartbeat; diarrhea; constipation; severe stomach pain, nausea or vomiting; dizziness; fainting; eye problems; extreme tiredness; changes in appetite, thirst or urine; rash; itching; confusion; memory problems; muscle pain or weakness; joint pain; flushing; or fever. These are not all the possible side effects. Problems can occur together and more often when opdivo is used with yervoy. Tell your doctor about all medical conditions including immune or nervous system problems, if you’ve had or plan to have an organ or stem cell transplant, or received chest radiation. Here’s to a chance to live longer. Ask your doctor about chemo-free opdivo plus yervoy. Thank you to all those in our clinical trials. No one can deliver your mom’s homemade short ribs. That’s why instacart helps deliver the ingredients. And you add the love. You’re the face of deception who became the face of conception. Can I get a selfie? Uh, just one real quick. Okay, here we go.
[ Chuckles ] Okay, that’s enough. Thank you. How about an autograph? Ms. Gilmore needs to see her baby now. Oh, baby deception. Can I come? Absolutely not. I want to do a feature on you in crimson. You are such a great nurse, and we want to do a photo shoot with you. With me? You mean it? Absolutely! So I’d be like, what, a model? Be like a model nurse.
[ Both laugh ] Right?! So why don’t you just — just sit down here and we can talk about what the spread might look like. Okay. Let’s do this. Let’s see our baby. Um… I just need to prepare you first. Prepare me for what? Um, our baby is hooked up to a lot of equipment. He’s wrapped in a cooling blanket to give his brain a chance to heal. Lack of oxygen. But he is peaceful. Sasha, he is so sweet. Okay. Thank you. I’m ready. Jason knew the risk, and he chose to save you. With a man of his reputation, you know, a-a reputation that he’s earned, he — he — he valued the lives of other people that he cared about more than his own. If it wasn’t for him, I’d still be peter’s puppet. But you’re not, right? Not anymore. I mean, I don’t know. He wanted me to kidnap maxie for him. Maybe he could still flip a switch. What if maxie is in danger because of me? Okay, if we tell valentin that bailey is really louise and we were only doing this to keep her safe from peter, no matter how mad he is, he might just keep yuri and the rest of his security team here. W-well, if security is what you’re worried about, maxie, we’ll just hire guards, okay? And how will we explain that? At least valentin has the excuse that he’s on peter’s bad side. If we bring guards here, I mean, we might as well send peter an engraved invitation. Look, I’m sorry. There’s just no way to change this. Valentin’s already taken back his elq shares. He got chase suspended from the pcpd. What? How? Last night, he wasn’t very nice to brook lynn, so I punched him in the face.
[ Clears throat ] That’s great. So now you don’t have a service revolver or a shield or anything useful to keep my daughter safe? Have you told charlotte? No, I haven’t had to. She’s staying with friends out of town for thanksgiving break. Well, when she comes back and she sees that you’re at the metro court and there’s no bailey, she’ll figure it out. She’s a smart kid. You’re gonna have to tell her. I don’t know how I’m gonna do that. I don’t know how I’m gonna say goodbye to bailey. Because once I say those words, it’s all gonna become irrevocably, undeniably, and unbearably real.
[ Monitors beeping, respirator hissing ]
[ Gasps ] Oh, my god, brando. He’s so beautiful. Of course he is. He looks just like you.
[ Chuckles ] No, no. He — he has that little crinkle thing with this forehead. That’s you, brando. That’s you. Hi, baby boy. Hi, sweetheart. Did daddy tell you how much I love you? I did, all the time. I have loved you since the moment I knew you were on the way. And now you’re here. You’re real. You’re you. I love you so much. We need to give you a little name, buddy. A name that says exactly who you are.
He’s a fighter like you. I’m a soldier.
You are a fighter. He is strong, though, that’s for sure. We need to give him a name that tells the world who he is. We still want mike for his middle name, right? Yes, absolutely. Yes. It’s important to honor your cousin. Especially since he was so good to you when you were a boy. Okay, then what goes with mike? I was throwing around silly names when I was in labor. Since then, I’ve been a little unfocused.
[ Sighs ] What about you? Well, I may have looked up a few between here and your bedside last night. I did find one that I really like. ‘Cause it means “strong-willed warrior.” I’m out of prison. Happy. Freedom. Happy. Well, what’s better than freedom? The world is your oyster. You could do anything. What’s your passion, mom? Other than the law? Okay, well, then, like, legal system adjacent, then. I’ve been a lawyer. I’ve been a convict. What’s the happy medium? You’re looking at it. I don’t follow. Okay, how do I say this? Un, you are a meddler. You like to stick your nose into other people’s business, getting to the truth and doing something about it, which is what I do. And I get hired for criminal cases all the time. You want me to be a private investigator. Curtis opened a nightclub, so I am down a partner, and it would be a huge help to have someone that knows the ins and outs of the legal system. And who knows that better than you? You are just trying to cheer me up. You want to work with your mother? Yes, I do. Mom, come on. Work together for truth and — and justice. What do you say? I know peter. And now that he’s back in the country, back in port charles, he will find louise or die trying. Maxie, I will give up my life before I let peter anywhere near that little girl. Peter’s no match for us, maxie. And you either. You said it yourself. You’re not afraid of him anymore. So don’t be afraid. Be the fierce person I know that you are. Maybe what I need is to confront peter in person. Yes. He’ll be locked up, helpless, and you’ll see that he — he doesn’t have power over you or your daughter anymore. Okay. I just need a minute. Okay. You really are a good guy. Thanks. But I think a lot of what maxie said is true. I’m sorry, I didn’t, uh — I did not mean to go there. Hey. Who else can you go there with than your friends? And that hasn’t changed just because you’ve been gone. If you need anything, just say the word. I know that, sonny. Thank you. Right now, I, uh — I really just want to make sure I get to know my daughter again. How did scout react when she saw you? She’s a little shy. She just knows me from pictures, so… well, she’s a kid. You know they adapt pretty fast. That’s right. Speaking of kids, I got to say congratulations again, man. Donna is so beautiful. Thank you. Thank you. How about your other girls? How — how’s josslyn? Uh [Chuckles] In college. Not possible. It is possible, as much as I hate to believe it. And what about avery? How’s she? Smart, sweet. Just beautiful. We’re so lucky to have our daughters, aren’t we? Absolutely. Truly. Well, I better get going. I just want to, uh… I just really want to say thank you to both of you for everything. Yeah. Please don’t be a stranger. Mm. I won’T. I won’T. Poor drew. I mean, what a burden. Surviving when jason didn’T. At least he has his family and his daughter. We have our kids, too. I mean, even though we’re grieving, we — we really need to count our blessings. Yeah, and take care of the people who love us. Which is why we need to get to the hospital. We need to support brando and sasha. Will I have to wear scrubs in the photo shoot? Well, you can wear scrubs showing what you’re like at — at work and then you can wear your street clothes just showing what you’re like when you’re not at work. But truly, amy, what’s important is showing you in the hospital because I truly believe that nurses are the heart to any hospital. I want to show the world how truly noble your profession is. Welcome to the world, liam. Liam mike. With a big, strong name like that, you will be out of here in no time. And we will take you home and we will give you the best life that any baby has ever had in the whole wide world.
It means a lot to me that you’re happy. I am happy, ma. Good. Anyway, I got to go to work. Yeah, me too. Especially since I doubt that carly’s gonna be coming in today. You’re gonna check on your dad, right? Yeah, I will. Okay. That’s my boy. Mm. See you. Okay. Hey, ma. I love you. I love you, too, honey. You don’t have to decide right now. You can think about it. I will do that. Good, because I think we would make a great team. Davis-mccall agency. Mccall-davis. Yeah, no, but, see, davis comes before mccall alphabetically. Yeah, but I’m already established in the field. Whatever. Okay. Um, if it’s a deal breaker, then I will think about it. Mom, this could be a great second act for you. If we partner up, I’m worried that you will get sick of me. I mean, yeah, we’re definitely gonna get sick of each other. We’ll butt heads and therefore probably fight a lot, but, I mean, that’s what it’s all about. It’s gonna be great. Great. Can we not do that? Okay, well, we can try. Just think — somebody might discover us and we could have our own reality show. Mother-daughter P.I. Agency. Good luck with that. Oh, excuse me. I just — I wanted to get a glass of…water. We’re in this thing now. We have to see it through. I don’t know. Maxie made some strong points. She did, but we are committed, which means we have to deal with it, especially now that valentin is furious with me, with us. There’s no telling what else valentin might do.
[ Doorbell rings ] Come in. Thank you for the assist. Oh, yeah. How’d you do it? Well, it was just some old-school flattery which turned into a really great idea for a feature. So, how’s the baby? Amazing. We named him. Liam. It means “strong-willed warrior.” Yeah, with a name like that, he’s got to pull through, right? Well, now that you guys are here, I’m just gonna go check in with my office, okay? And just when I thought you couldn’t be any more beautiful, I saw you with liam. And what can I say? I was wrong. Excuse me. Sorry to interrupt. I received word from your son’s doctor. Dr. Fleming’s on her way here now. There’s news about your baby.
On the next “General Hospital” —
