[ Sighs ] You’re gonna have to help me keep it together. I don’t want to cry in front of sasha and brando. Listen, we have to be there for them. We don’t want them to feel alone, and… I don’t want you to feel alone, okay?

[ Quietly ] Thank you.

[ Sighs ] A-are you here to see sasha and brando? I could give you an update. We don’t need an update. It’s just they’re trying to tough it out, but they’re pretty fragile, so please be gentle. No reason to worry just because the neonatologist has news about our baby. No, I’m not worried. Are you worried? Mnh-mnh. Of course not. I’m not worried. In fact, when the three of us get home, I am going to buy our son his first baseball mitt. You don’t think he’s a little young to start playing catch? Mnh-mnh, not with a name like liam mike. He is strong willed, and like — and like mike corbin, he will — he will defy the odds and live his life to the fullest. You know what the name brando means? Mnh-mnh. Sword or fiery torch. Oh, I will fight for our family with a sword or a fiery torch. I know you will. Hey. One day, we will tell our grandchildren about their heroic dad, who was strong willed and he defied the odds. Yeah. And they’re gonna say that we — we worried for nothing. They’re gonna laugh at us. Maxie’s emotionally exhausted. I mean, not that I blame her. But second-guessing is not gonna get us anywhere. We are in this thing now. We’ve got 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. And there’s no telling what else valentin might do.

[ Doorbell rings ]

[ Sighs ] We had enough trouble the last time you were here, don’t you think? So please just turn around and walk away. No one’s here for any trouble. Then what do you want?

[ Exhales sharply ] Oh, excuse me. I just wanted to get a glass of water. Hi, maxie. Long time no see. Drew. In the flesh. I’m not a ghost. I’m not a hologram or a figment of your imagination, don’t worry. I — I heard that you were alive. I just — I haven’t processed it yet. Until now? It’s processed. Mm-hmm. It’s so processed. I’m fine.

[ Chuckles ] Despite jason morgan’s best attempt to kill me. Yeah, you’re a lucky man. It’s good you were only shot in the arm. You might have some nerve damage, but nothing serious. Not like as if I had been shot in the chest, right? No. If you were shot in the chest, you’d be in the icu. Oh, so I take it you don’t believe the rumors, then. Mm, I hear a lot of rumors. Which one you talking about? The ones that say… I don’t have a heart. Oh, don’t be silly. If you didn’t have a heart, you wouldn’t be alive. Oh, how very clinical of you, dr… austin gatlin-holt. Now, where do I recognize… that name? Of course. You delivered my daughter.

I’m not here to hurl accusations or issue threats. Why not? Did plenty of that before you moved out. Don’t tell me you lost steam. Or maybe you found out I was suspended from the force for throwing a punch at you, and you came here to gloat. I regret that that happened. Do you regret feeding thanksgiving dinner to the family dog? Not really. I understand that passions were running high. It was thanksgiving. That’s what happens on family occasions. I’m not family. Yeah, I know this doesn’t help, but when I started to put it all together, I was totally blind-sided to find out I was bailey’s father. Well, brook lynn used both of us, I had my reasons. Alright, let’s not rehash that or the ramifications, ’cause that’s not why we’re here. What, are you here to talk elq business with my dad now that you’ve solidified your position as ceo? No. I’m just here because I want to say goodbye to my… …to bailey. Anna told me that you were back, but the story was too incredible to be true. Peter faked the plane crash and then held you captive for over two years? I wouldn’t have believed it myself if I hadn’t have lived through it. Unfortunately, others weren’t so lucky. Yeah. I still haven’t wrapped my mind around jason’s death. If only… if only what? If only I could go back in time to before peter was in our lives, when nathan was still alive. How would you change the past, maxine? Could you stop nathan from being killed? I would if I could. But I guess, at best,

[Sighs] I would go back to before I meet peter. Hmm. Before I fell in love with him. But we cannot go back in time, no matter how much we’d like to. Mm. When I was in prison, I just kind of kept focusing on the future, holding on to that, when I’d see scout again. And sam? Oh, wow. I should just keep my big mouth shut. No, it’s okay.

[ Chuckles ] It’s alright. I went to see them first thing, both of them. Scout and sam? Mm-hmm. How did that go? Dante was with them. Oh. Okay. Um… it’s been sort of a slow process with them. They…kind of got together trying to find you.

[ Sighs ] You know, james is gonna be really excited to see you.

[ Chuckles ] I can’t wait to see him, too. How’s he doing? Great. Good. Maxie, you don’t have to protect my feelings, okay? Sam and I were done long before peter abducted me. So you’re saying you’re okay with sam and dante? I’m trying to be. I mean, it’s not like I have any other choice. Well, it must have been great to see scout. It made everything that I went through to get home absolutely worthwhile. I know what you mean. You know, if I could go back in time, I-I don’t think I would, because then I wouldn’t have louise. You found your daughter? Is louise finally home? Please — please tell me about the circumstances surrounding louise’s birth. It kills me that I wasn’t there to welcome my daughter into this world. No, you certainly were not. You were too busy running from the police. You didn’t make it to the cabin, to my cabin, and the nurse that you hired to kidnap maxie tried to induce birth. You know, you put maxie and your own child at great risk. Who’s been feeding you all of this? I was there. You know that. Thank god I was. I was hiking in the woods. When I found maxie, she was already in labor. Then you may have been the last person to see my daughter before she was abducted. It’s a possibility. So what? So you were in the right place at the right time. Perhaps… you know what became of my daughter. Why don’t we take turns visiting sasha? That way, she’s not overwhelmed. No, there’s no need. You guys go ahead. I just got done seeing sasha and brando. Why are you still here? Carly, it — it’s fine. It’s fine, sonny. I know that carly is upset over the loss of jason. Don’t say his name. You know nothing about me and jason. Hey. I can’t do — I’m — I’m gonna go for a walk. Okay, let me go with you. I’m just gonna go see monica. I — hey. The… baby’s fine? Yeah, sasha should hear an update today. Alright. How can anything possibly be wrong with our baby? I mean, look at him. He’s adorable. It’s — it’s just that… I know, all those tubes that are hooked up to liam. I know. Hey, you have to remind yourself, those are making our little boy healthy. Yeah, yeah, like — like the cooling blanket. Exactly, and the love of his mommy and daddy. And what else does the little guy need?

[ Door opens ] Sasha, brando, I want to introduce you to dr. Fleming, your baby’s neonatologist. I’d say it’s nice to meet you, but, um… I understand. We were told that you had news about our baby.

Anna: I promise you, he is not here to make a scene. What, you come here to vouch for him? Anna’s my friend. This isn’t easy for me. Of course it’s not easy. None of this is easy. Especially for valentin, wouldn’t you say? I mean, you allowed him — you — in fact, you encouraged him to fall in love with your little girl, knowing that he wasn’t her father. You expect him to throw a switch and just not love her any longer? No, nobody is thinking that. But first, he showed up mad as hell, lashing out at brook lynn in the most hurtful way imaginable, and now he’s just here asking for her understanding? What do you want her to believe? Brook lynn feels guilty enough. How much longer are you gonna pile it on? I’m not here to pile on anymore guilt. That’s not why I’m here. Then you want closure with bailey? I don’t believe in closure. You think just ’cause I say goodbye, I’m gonna stop loving her? Then why are you here, valentin? Anna: That’s my fault. I insisted that he needed to do this. No, anna, nobody makes me do anything I don’t want to do. Listen, bailey’s far too young to understand any of this, but I haven’t told charlotte that she doesn’t have a sister, and I’m not going to be able to do that until I say goodbye to bailey. Brook lynn. My god, I knew this is how she would react. I knew that this is — she’s not gonna let me see bailey. No, no, she’s not back yet, but I’m just holding out hope that one day she will be. Are there any breaks in the case? I’m just hoping that now that peter’s in custody, whoever has taken louise will feel it’s safe to bring her back. So you think that someone took louise to protect her from peter? You think I’m deluding myself, don’t you? No, I think — I think you want your little girl back more than anything in the world, and if I could help, if I could make that happen, I would. Thank you. But I know in my heart that louise will be home one day, and it’ll make all of this worth it. All of what worth it? Things that I had to do because of peter. Things I never thought I would be forced to do. I know what you mean. Even if I did know where louise was — and I don’t — you’re the last person that I would tell. Make a fist. Yeah. That way, I can draw blood. This won’t hurt a bit. Oh, goodness me. I’m so sorry, I seem to have missed the vein. Let me just try that one more time. Oh, yeah, there we go. Success. Sorry about that. Ordinarily, I’m not so clumsy. Oh, you’re enjoying this, aren’t you? Yeah, absolutely. I love my job, always. And that hippocratic oath you took to be a doctor? Oh. Yeah, right. “Do no harm.” Yeah, it’s sticky, though. That’s the question. I mean, who gets harmed and who does not? Well, I suppose it’s the patients who are not to be harmed, though you couldn’t tell by the way you just stuck me. But you see, that’s my point. Maxie’s also my patient. So do no harm should apply to her, as well. And what is maxie to you, doctor? Monica, it’s, um…carly. I went by your office, but you weren’t there, and…

[ Sighs ] Well, I-I wanted to talk to you in person. But it’s probably better that this is on voicemail, because then you can just hang up if you want. Really hoping you don’T. I’m so sorry about jason. I’m so sorry you have to grieve him all over again. I mean, he was my best friend, but he was your son, and…

[ Sighs ] I know what that kind of pain feels like. Look, in all the years of squabbling and fighting, I don’t know if I ever… thanked you for jason. For the incredible human being he was. He loved you…so much. And I know you know that, I just thought that… I thought you might want to hear it. That’s all. Is this about liam’s hypothermia therapy? Is it working? Can liam come home soon?

[ Pager beeps ] I’m sorry. Oh, there’s an emergency in nicu. Not your baby. It’s okay. I got this. So getting back to your question, hypothermia therapy can take up to 72 hours, as you know. We still need to give your baby’s brain time to cool. What dr. Fleming wanted to tell you was that the eeg had been scheduled. And then what happens? We won’t know until we get the results. But you have an entire team dedicated to caring for liam, and I’ll be the liaison between them and you. Okay, good. Um, what — what can we do to help?

Just keep doing what you’re doing — sending a lot of love to that beautiful baby boy. And let the team at G.H. Continue to give him the best possible care. The waiting is so excruciating. I know. But we have to take it one day at a time. Let the therapy run its course. In the meantime, your baby needs you to take care of yourselves. Liam’s strong.

We have to be stronger. We will be. I know this is gonna sound ridiculous, but I kind of envy you. I’m not sure why. No, listen, you — you got the chance to confront peter. You let him take his best shot and you survived. You actually came out on top. At the cost of jason’s life. Yeah, I know. I hate that part. But at least peter doesn’t have power over you anymore. I mean, I would give anything to take away peter’s power to frighten me. You know what I used to tell scout and danny when they have a bad dream? I’d say, “look under the bed. Look in the closet, and when you see nothing but dust balls and clothes, then you’ll know… that the bogeyman has no power over you anymore.” Well, do tell. Just how friendly are you with the mother of my child? Maxie has a lot of friends. I’d be happy to be one of them. Oh, but you’re not? May I suggest you keep it that way. Is that a threat? I’m clearly in no position to threaten anyone, doctor, but I am a born romantic, and I do believe the fates will conspire to reunite my family. Yeah, I don’t believe in fate. I do. Sometimes fate needs a helping hand. Bye-bye. Such fun meeting you today. Carly: Hey, britt. Carly. Sonny’s around here somewhere. I just — we were just coming to see sasha. I just came from her room. How is she? Sasha’s good. Strong. I’m sure she’d love to see you. Yeah. Well, maybe in a few minutes. I don’t want to walk in there with my baggage.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] How are you?

[ Chuckles ] I just want to say fine. I came here because I wanted to support sasha and brando, but it’s not like there’s anything I can do for them. Just like there’s nothing I can do for jason. Right? How am I? I’m sad. And I’m scared. Because I don’t know what the rest of my life looks like without him. You know? Well, you know what? You’ll figure it out.

[ Scoffs ] You will. You know how I know? Jason told me. He had complete faith in you. And you know jason doesn’t say things just to be nice. He said it because he believed it, that you are strong enough to get through anything.

[ Sighs ] I was, when I had him to back me up. I didn’t have to be good enough or strong enough for jason. I could just be me. That’s an amazing feeling, you know? To have someone you can count on, no matter what. And jason gave me that feeling. And now he’s gone.

[ Sighs ] I know… god, I know how grief works, and the only way… out is through. And then someday, when I say, “I’m fine,” I’ll mean it, you know? I-I know. Yeah. Right now…you can’t even imagine that day. Nope. Me neither. Which probably sounds ridiculous. It doesn’T. Not to me.

[ Whispering ] Thank you. Take care of yourself. I’m sorry, brook lynn — she wanted to be alone. You know, I did warn you that honor is in short supply in this house and so is compassion. So if I were you, I would take that beautiful daughter of yours and I would go far, far away before brook lynn turns her into a quartermaine. Let’s go. Brook lynn: Not yet. Yeah, somebody misses you very much.

[ Bailey coos ]

Chase: Maybe we should give the guy some privacy. No, that’s not necessary. Bailey and i have no secrets. We’ll leave that to others in this house. You are a beautiful little girl. I have to go. And we may never see one another again, at least not for a long, long time. But I wanted to say goodbye. And I don’t know… how to find the strength to do that. So what should we call this? Hey, have you been in to see sasha? No, I was just waiting for you. Thank you. Um…I’m ready. Okay, let’s do this. Can I get you anything? Hmm? You want water? Another blanket? The only thing I need is for our baby to get healthy. And he will. I know he will. No child made by “sword” and “defender of man” can be otherwise. Sasha means “defender of man”? I looked it up when I looked at brando. Hmm. Strong-willed son, daddy, who’s a sword, and mommy, who defends us both. We are quite the family.

[ Exhales sharply ] Family. I can’t tell you how good that sounds. A family. People that I-I-I can lean on. People that can see you when you’re scared and vulnerable.

[ Sighs ] Not the face of deception. So, yeah, I’m your family. You’re my family. And liam is our family. Small. But plenty big in heart.

[ Knock on door, door opens ] -Hi. -Hey. Well, rumor has it you guys are up for visitors. The more, the merrier. Sonny: [ Chuckles ] Ohh. Let me tell you something, if, um… we got your back. If you need anything, you just ask. Dr. Westbourne, I just met your brother. Uh, peter is not a brother to me. We share a father, that’s all. Well, he’s my patient now. Let me guess. You want to be taken off his case? No, not at all. I want you to keep me on it. How about I take a pass on that ct scan? I’m feeling a bit claustrophobic since that tunnel fell on me. No? Alright. Well, in that case, I’ll take a very large muscle relaxant. Bridget, just push my meeting back until tomorrow, okay? I’m running late at the hospital, and I’m probably not gonna make it to the office and — wait! You know what? Let me just call you back. Darn it. Nina reeves, look at you. So alive and well. Looks like we’re both extremely hard to kill. I brought you something. This is the oldest thing I have. This was mine. And it got me through some tough nights. I want you to have it. And then, one day, you’ll ask your mommy and daddy where it came from, and they’ll have to tell you it came from someone who loved you so…much.

[ Bailey coos ]

Will you? That will never work! You guys, we came here to cheer you up, not get all emotional. We were just saying how important it is to have family to lean on. It is, and you have us, and you have each other. Sonny and I know how terrifying it is to wait for word on your baby’s health. Brando told me donna had spina bifida. You both must have been scared out of your minds. Yeah, that’s an understatement. Yeah. How’d you two get through it? We just — we leaned heavily on each other. Yeah. And when I was scared, sonny let me be scared. You really were strong for me. And you were for me. You know, as frightening as it was, it really brought us closer together. I’m sure it’s the same for you, right? I’m sorry the three of us missed thanksgiving at your place. Must have been wonderful to have everyone together. You know what? Next year, are three of you are coming. Looking forward to it. So…have you named your son yet? Yeah, we did. Liam mike. Short for michael, after the man who was so good to me when I was growing up. My dad would have been very honored. You want to see him? Yeah, I’ve been waiting for you to ask me.

[ Laughs ] Carly: [ Sighs ] He wants to be so strong for me.

[ Bailey coos ] Chase: I know he said otherwise, but let’s give the man some privacy. Anna, please don’t go. Look at this little gift he’s giving you. It’s so beautiful. Hey, what’s wrong? It just — it upsets me to see someone separated from a child that they love. I know, but couldn’t be helped. Valentin thought he was bailey’s father, but… you are, yeah. Yeah, I know. Monica told me. Hey. I know that valentin and the quartermaines have had their issues, but I may not even be here right now if it wasn’t for valentin and anna and… my brother jason, may he rest in peace.

[ Sighs ] Tell me, doctor, do you feel this kind of loyalty to all the mothers of all the babies you’ve delivered? Oh, given the circumstances of louise’s birth and her bizarre disappearance, can you blame me?

[ Sighs ] Maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea for you to keep an eye on peter. Right. Your enemy’s enemies and all that. Let’s just say you have a peculiar habit of being around when things go wrong, whether it’s maxie giving birth in the woods or peter showing up to G.H. Or when you lose a dear friend? Dr. Westbourne, I don’t think things could get much worse, so let’s hope they get better soon. What is this man doing here? Why isn’t he locked up in pentonville? Oh, you didn’t hear about jason morgan nearly killing me? Because of him, I require medical attention. What a shame. Too bad jason’s aim wasn’t better. Ms. Reeves and i are practically family. You know how heated family squabbles can get. So tell me, did your friend mike finally fly to your rescue or what? You son of a bitch. There’s a place in hell reserved just for you. You know, people keep telling me that. But I venture to think you’ll beat me there.

I made a vow — no more waterworks. My baby and brando need me. Oh, brando and liam need you to get better, which means you have to rest. Also means, whether you like it or not, you have to do what the nurses tell you. Yeah. Epiphany and elizabeth have had great fun bossing me around.

[ Laughs ] I bet they have. Look, I know this isn’t the experience that you’d hoped for, but it sounds like to me, you’ll be able to go home soon. And we will be taking liam mike with us. I like the way you think. I’m gonna go… and let you rest.

[ Whispering ] Alright. Carly, thank you. Thank you for being such a good friend to me. My pleasure. I’m always here for you. Always. You hear that, liam? You will be coming home with us. The tubes, they feed liam, and — and there’s a special blanket that helps cool him down to help his brain recover from the lack of oxygen. Sounds backwards. Yeah, I know, right?

[ Both laugh ] You’d think they were meant to keep him warm, but it’s the opposite effect. You know, you’re never more raw and vulnerable as when you become a father. How do you do it, sonny? How do you handle the constant fear? You just don’t let it dominate your life. I always picture, like… donna’s smile, avery’s laugh. I know my — you know, kristina and michael and dante, they’re grown up, but I still worry about them. And I’m not josslyn’s biological father, but I consider her my daughter. I’m her dad. Let me tell you something, nothing’s scarier than a teenage girl.

[ Both laugh ] But one thing I’ve learned from, you know, raising kids is… you — you have absolutely no control. Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] That — that is a lesson that’s tough for me to learn. But you did a great job. Gave him a great name. Liam mike. Little irish charm. My dad’s, uh… my dad’s fighting spirit. You know? What makes you so sure he’s got it? What do you mean, why I think he’s not gonna be a quitter? Because it runs in the family. I have a feeling you don’t want to keep tabs on peter out of some sort of professional interest. I am concerned about maxie’s physical well-being and her emotional well-being, especially now that I met the father of her child. No one is underestimating the harm peter is capable of causing. But he is being guarded 24/7. And once he is released from the hospital, he’ll be locked away for the rest of his unnatural life. Maybe. But having just spent a little bit of time with him, he doesn’t sound like a guy who’s giving up on getting his family back. What does he sound like? Sounds like a high-stakes poker player who’s very pleased with himself that he still has an ace up his sleeve. In france, they say “au revoir,” mon ange, which means “until we meet again.” Au revoir, mon ange. Come on. Let’s go. Excuse me.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Exhales sharply ] It’s done. Okay? You ready to go? Too many lies. Too many hearts broken. Too many lives destroyed. This has to stop. Would it be possible if we just had a second? I mean, he’s — he’s not gonna go anywhere, right? Just, please? Really, officers. It’s fine. I’ll be fine. You can go. What do you intend to do? Me? Yeah, you. Oh, I don’t have to lift a finger. No, nina, you sealed your own fate back in beautiful nixon falls when you fell in love with another woman’s husband, and not just any woman. That feisty carly corinthos. Frankly, nina, to tell you the truth, I’m quite surprised to see you here in town. I would have thought carly would have run you out on a rail by now, right after tarring and feathering you first, of course. Or doesn’t she know?
