sonny: Nina, what are you doing here? I-I was at charlie’s with aunt liesl, and she overheard someone saying that you were in a bad way, and I didn’t want you to be alone on a boat if you weren’t taking your medication. I’m taking my medication. I’ve been taking my medication ever since you took me to general hospital. This is something completely different, nina. Oh, I’m so relieved. I mean, I’m not relieved that you’re in a bad way. I’m just — I’m glad that you’re — I know what you mean. Charlie’s, huh? Is that how obrecht heard, through kristina? Yeah, she was on the phone with someone. Yep, yep. [ Sighs ] Hey. Want to talk about it? I was making A… a major play at… trying to save my marriage. Oh. I got the impression that you were alone. Listen, I-I’m so sorry. I’ll leave so I don’t cause any more trouble… no, you don’t have to go. …With you and carly. You don’t have anything to worry about, ’cause my marriage is over. Excuse me. Dante falconeri was brought in tonight. Can you tell me how he’s doing? Are you family?

The role of sam mccall is temporarily being played by lindsay hartley. You know, I’m not danny. You don’t have to hold my hand to keep me calm.

[ Chuckles ] I’m holding your hand to keep me calm.

[ Monitor beeping ] I’ll feel better once the ct results come back and we know for sure that you’re okay. Yeah, I’m gonna be fine. You can’t get rid of me that easily. I’m gonna hold you to that. Okay. Dante falconeri.

[ Clears throat ] That’s me. I have your test results. Mom, is there any word? Mac’s still in surgery. That’s all they could tell me. What about the kids? They’re fine. They’re fast asleep. Spinelli can stay with them for as long as we need.

[ Exhales deeply ] Why do you think it’s taking so long? Mom, mac is strong, okay? He’s gonna pull through this. He’s got an amazing team of doctors and he’s survived far worse than a gunshot. Well, he was younger then. But, yes, yes, you’re right. He’s strong and he’s resilient. He’s gonna come back to us because he has to. Yep. Any word on mac? No. Um… felicia…checked. Okay. Um, you were, uh — you were with her when she found him. Yeah. How’d he look? Leave nothing out. It was bad.There was a lot of blood. It took a bit, but they managed to stabilize him so that they could transport him. I wouldn’t count him out, though, not just yet. I should get you coffee. Uh, please. Stay. You’re late. And you’re alone. That wasn’t the plan. The plan hit a snag. Yeah, well, that much is obvious. Where’s peter august? Here name’s bailey quartermaine. She’s 8 months old. Yes, I have a recent photo. I’ll send it to you now. Oh, and I want every available man and woman out there looking for her. She’s nowhere to be found. The monitor was turned off. Someone broke into my car and took the car seat. This can’t be happening. Yeah, well, apparently it is. Damn it! Peter got her. He — he found his daughter. Ohh. He’s got bailey. Sorry for the delay, my darling. Sometimes daddy just needs a little downtime to think things through, you know? By now, the authorities, they’re probably looking for both of us. But don’t you worry. I won’t let them get you.

oing on with me?Your ct scan showed no evidence of a concussion or a traumatic brain injury. You should be fine to go home tomorrow. What about tonight? I’d like to keep you here for observation. Admitting will be in shortly. Thank you, doctor. Thank you. See, just like my mom always said, I got a hard head.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, okay, you guys are smiling. So you’re okay? Yeah, yeah, I’m fine. They want to hold me for precautionary reasons, but, yeah, I’m good to go. Alright. Well, I’m glad. Sonny’s gonna be relieved. Where is he? What do you mean your marriage is over? Did something else happen? Carly’s been distancing herself from me, shutting herself off. I wanted to, uh, show her how much she means to me and let her — let her know that… I’m 100% in this marriage, so that’s why I wanted her to show up here tonight. No expectations, no, you know — I wasn’t insisting she forgive me or forget everything that happened. I just wanted her to come here… so she could let me know if she wanted the marriage to move forward. Been looking at this, right, for hours, hours and hours and hours, just… no sign of carly. So I guess carly gave me the answer.

[ Gasps ]

[ Cellphone clatters ] Uh, sonny. We’re done. I am so sorry. You know what, nina? There’s a lot of people who may not believe you are, but I-I do. I am. I — I’m so sorry. Al l I’ve ever wanted was for youto be safe and happy. I’ve been on this boat. And I’ve been thinking a lot about… …why carly didn’t show up. And she always said to me that — that part of her anger was because I was always defending you, and I didn’t see it. Maybe I was. You know, we’ve lost a lot of good people lately. Luke, sean. Maybe my brother. We haven’t lost mac. God forbid the worst happens, you know, we’ll get through it together like we always do. It’s just getting — getting harder and harder, anna. I know. I understand. But let’s not go down that path just yet. Okay? We have every reason to believe that mac is gonna pull through. So please don’t lose faith. You know, every time I turn around, seems like the bad guys are winning. My faith is getting hammered on the ropes. Then why don’t you borrow mine? Till you can come out swinging. Felicia: How are you doing? Right now, I just want to focus on mac getting through the surgery, okay? But I’m so happy you’re here with me, mom. Yeah. Hey. How are you guys holding up? Well, um, I checked on mac, and, um… yeah. …He’s not out of surgery yet. Oh. And it just — I don’t know. It just seems like it’s just taking forever. I got a chance to see him before they wheeled him off to surgery, and I pleaded with him to come back to me.

[ Sobbing ] But he was just so still. Oh, honey. Honey, listen. If there’s one thing I know about mac, it’s how much he loves his family. He’s going to do everything in his power to come back to you. Yeah. Okay? Mm-hmm. Okay, thanks. They got a bolo out on peter, and they’re working on a missing-child alert. But how do you know it’s peter who took her? Look at how all this went down. Okay, peter escapes tonight. He’s on the run. My car gets broken into. Bailey gets abducted. Th-that means someone — someone is worried about her safety, okay? It’s — it’s someone that’s — that’s improvising. It’s an unplanned abduction by someone willing to risk everything for that child. Like a father on the run. All signs point to peter. I need to call dante, and you need to call maxie. Sonny’s not here. I haven’t called him yet. How did you find out? I was with drew when anna called to tell him about the news that you had been injured in peter’s escape. What the hell’s it gonna take to stop that monster? I mean, after everything he’s done, even prison was too good for him. I know, and I wish I wasn’t in here. I could be out there helping hunt him down. Well, you need to rest. The pcpd and wsb have it covered. I need to let sonny know what’s going on. I am really glad you’re okay. Take care of him? Of course. Okay.

[ Monitor beeping ] Ah, we were so close. We were so close.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Here. Chase, what’s up? Hey, uh, bailey’s been kidnapped. Uh, we think peter did it. Whoa, whoa, you think peter kidnapped bailey? Are you sure? Well, we don’t have conclusive proof, but my — my gut’s at 100%. And I-I called it in. And — and I know you’re probably swamped with — with peter on the loose. But, man, I-I could really use you here.

I trust you, and if there’s

any possible way — yeah, yeah, okay, okay. You know, I’ll be there as soon as I can. Sit tight. Bailey’s been kidnapped? Yeah, yeah. He thinks it was peter. Why would peter want chase’s baby? I don’t know. I don’t know. But I-I got to find out. I got to get over there. No. No, you’re not. You’re not.

Sonny, it’s me. I’m at the hospital. Um, peter august escaped being transported to pentonville. And dante and mac were injured. Look, don’t worry. Dante’s okay. I-I just left him, but I came straight here to general hospital because I thought you’d be here. Uh — [ Sighs ] Mac is in surgery, and look, I’m gonna do what I can to find out about peter, but I think we’re gonna have to do martinique another night. I mean, if we’re lucky, we could get the guy who killed jason and we could do it together. Nina: You were put in an impossible situation. You were just trying to do what was right. Yeah, I was. It was very difficult when I came home. My wife was married to my best friend. But I was trying to, you know, make the peace, ’cause I knew that was best for my family. All I wanted was to get back to that life before I — before I went into that river. My life was so good, nina. Yeah, I just kept complicating that. No, no, no, not at all. Listen. I was just focusing on trying to get my life back to normal. What I didn’t see… that I had an instinct… …to make sure you weren’t hurt, and even though I was genuinely trying to do what was right for my family, I acted on that instinct. My family was — was angry with me. Despite everything you did, there was — there was A… …there was a part of me… that cared about you. But because of that, I have now lost the person… …[Voice breaking] That I — that I love the most. I promise, I never intended for any of this to happen. I am so sorry that I just — I keep hurting you over and over again, and if I would, sonny, I would make everything alright. I would tell the world from the beginning that you were sonny corinthos. Even if it meant our time together never happened? Maxie. I heard what happened. Oh, my gosh, I’m so sorry about mac. Why are you here by yourself? Where’s your mom? She’s in the chapel with anna. Um, robert’s here, too, but he’s taking a walk. I know you’re exhausted. Sit down. Have you heard anything? No, we’re just waiting and hoping. Yeah, I know how that goes. Dante’s here. He’s downstairs in the er. But he’s okay. Oh, that’s a relief. Okay, thank you for letting me know. You’re welcome. Oh, I’m so sorry. Have you heard anything? No, not yet, but that’s a hopeful sign. I mean, if it were bad news, we would have heard. Okay, that’s kind of a backwards system. You should get regular updates if there’s good news. I’ll bring it up at the next staff meeting. Hello. Hi. I’m gonna go. Call me if you need anything. Okay. I didn’t get a chance to thank you for helping mac when he was brought in. No, it– no, I’m — I’m glad that you’re here. Yeah, me too. How you holding up? Well, I keep thanking god that louise is safe with brook lynn and chase. I’ve constantly been living in fear that peter was gonna evade law enforcement again. And here we are. It’s why I have to keep lying until peter is caught again or, hopefully, dead. Yeah, I still flinch a little inwardly when I hear you talk like that, but I’m beginning to understand. I can’t help but think if mac doesn’t make it through surgery… the last thing I will have done is lie to him. I don’t know if I can live with that. He shot kendall. He hit me in the shoulder, and I-I had to swerve off the road. I played dead while he dragged me and kendall out of the car. He left us on the side of the road and took off. Yes, well, he really must have been in a hurry if he didn’t stop to check your pulse. Like I said, he was desperate to get to the kid.

[ Sighs ] He’s probably figuring that I’d have no more use for him once he told me what I need to know about drew. Right now, he’s probably congratulating himself on outsmarting me and getting away. Well, he couldn’t be more wrong. There are other detectives on the force. Yeah, but chase is my partner. He and brook lynn must be losing their minds right now. Well, I almost lost — stop it. Listen to me. I almost lost you tonight. Look, I promise you, I will do my best to make sure you are never put through that again. But peter has hurt too many people. He has caused too much damage. I can’t just sit here and let him hurt someone else. Not if I can do something about it.

[ Sighs ] Alright. I’ll get the nurse. Hey. You’re something else. Remember that. Ma. Uh, two things. Peter’s transport didn’t go that well. I’m at gh. No. Calm down. I’m fine, okay? But the other thing… brook lynn is not. I just keep hoping that I’ll hear bailey cry and I’ll just go upstairs, and this will all be a bad dream, right? I, uh — I take it you haven’t called maxie yet. I can’t, chase. Mac’s been shot. She’s probably a mess. Brook lynn, she has to know. How am i supposed to tell her that her worst fear has come true, huh? How am i supposed to tell her that I left bailey’s monitor inside when I went out on the patio and… peter just waltzed in here and took bailey? How am I supposed to tell her that bailey is gone and it’s all my fault?

[ Gasping ] Brook lynn, brook lynn, hey, hey, hey. You’re having a panic attack. Here. Come here, come here, come here. Put your hands on my chest. Okay. And just take slow deep breaths. Okay? Yeah. Match your breaths with mine.

[ Inhales deeply ] In through your nose.

[ Both exhale deeply ] Just let it out. Okay. That’s it. One more time.

[ Both breathe deeply ] You’re good. Hey, this isn’t your fault. Okay? It’s not your fault. You have been protecting bailey for months, and you are going to keep doing that, but the best way to do that is to call maxie, and then we’re all gonna figure out a way to bring bailey home together, okay? Okay. Alright? You can do this. Okay. Brook lynn, hi. I was just about to call you. Look, I-I know about peter. Mac has been shot, and he’s in surgery. Maxie. What is it? Bailey’s gone.

What do you mean, bailey’s gone? Dante called chase to tell him about mac, and he mentioned peter’s escape. And by the time we ran upstairs, we were too late. She was already gone. It was peter. He took her. I don’t want to believe that. No, he did, brook lynn. I can feel it. But how did he figure it out?

It doesn’t matter. We kept the secret for as long as we could, but peter is smart and he’s connected. All that matters is he has my daughter, and she’s in danger.

[ Doorbell rings ]

[ Sighs ] That’s the pcpd. Chase called it in. We are doing everything we can to find her, maxie. I promise you, we will not let that son of a bitch get away with our girl. I’m gonna get there as soon as I can. How can I help? He took louise. He has her. Come here. Hey, listen, I-I know that you’ve probably heard a lot of awful things about me from your mom — or should I say your mommy’s friend. Regardless, I want you to know she’s a liar. They’re all liars, louise. I’m not a monster. I just want to be… the father that you deserve, my darling. Unlike the poor excuse that I had.

[ Chuckling ] You are so beautiful. And I spent so long looking for you, too. Now that I found you… …I want to give you the world. So what did they say? They said you can leave already? Well, yeah, I’m — I’m checking out against medical advice. This is too important. What? Chase and brook lynn’s baby was kidnapped. What? They think it was peter. Why? Why is he doing this? I don’t know, but th-that’s what I’ve got to find out. You’re all set, detective. Great. Thank you. Take it slow. Yeah. Not a chance. Okay, so look, the wsb is conducting a massive manhunt for peter right now. So essentially, we’re looking for the same person. I say we join forces so we can find him faster. Sounds good. There’s no way in hell peter’s getting away this time. Alright, come on. Take it easy, okay? So what do we have on this baby? When was the last time that it was seen? Honestly, you know as much as I do. Carly: Dante, what are you doing? I thought you were staying overnight. An emergency’s come up. Yeah. Did they find peter? No. He’s taken bailey. Oh, my god. This whole thing is a nightmare. But I will find peter and I will bring that baby home safely. Can you swear to that? Because jason warned you over and over again about peter and you didn’t listen. I want peter captured. I need this to be over. I hope so, because peter august needs to be stopped once and for all. I hear you, carly, but you hear me. When I find peter, I will stop him this time for good. I only stopped in nixon falls on a whim because I remembered that phyllis lived there and at that time in my life, I really needed someone who was gonna be on my side, someone who would support me, someone who understood me. Nixon falls ended up healing me. I found peace and happiness I hadn’t known were possible. And you — you were a large part of that. I never expected to fall in love with you. As strange as this sounds, considering the circumstances… …I developed real feelings for you. Mike never expected to fall in love with you, either. So to answer your question, would I give it all up if I had a do-over, and the answer is yes.

I need to go to brook lynn’S. Okay, no one’s gonna be mad about that. But my mom, what if she needs me? I’ll take care of your mom. I’ll stay here. Maxie, I think you need to talk to your family and tell them what’s going on with you and your daughter. No. I think they’ll understand. What if it’s too much? You told me, right? I understood. It’s up to you, whatever you want to do. I’ll be right back. I never want to see another cup of tea. Maxie, what’s wrong? Is it mac? No. Um… bailey quartermaine’s been kidnapped, and we’re sure that it’s peter who took her.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, that’s horrible. I just got a text here from anna about that. She’s headed over to brook lynn and chase’s house right now. Yeah, I’m gonna go there, too. Felicia: While mac’s in surgery? Okay, I have an update. Mac has come through the most critical part of the surgery with flying colors, and there’s still a long road and there’s no guarantees, but everyone’s optimistic. Oh, thank god. Thank you, austin. Okay, that makes this easier. Why are you leaving? I’m sure brook lynn will understand that your mother needs you here. I know you do, mom, but my daughter needs me more. The baby that peter took is not brook lynn’S. She’s mine. She’s always been mine. I was hiding her. Bailey is really louise. Look, I know you probably have a lot of questions. And they can wait. So you go to your daughter, my grandbaby. You just be safe, okay? Thank you, mom. And until I’m back, um… I’ll take care of it. Yeah. Austin can tell you what’s going on. Alright, you two. Why don’t you have a seat? This is a hell of a story. Brook lynn. Dad. Oh, my god. Sweetheart. Oh, my god. Dante just called us. Olivia sends her love and support. She didn’t want to get in the way. I’m sorry to interrupt your night. First granny, now us. No, no, no, look. Look, nothing is more important than you and my granddaughter. Liv feels the same way. You know, I know — i knew it was a mistake for you to move out here. What? This wouldn’t have happened if you had just listened to me and stayed put. Dad, that’s not fair. Mr. Quartermaine, we’re all scared, and emotions are raw, but you cannot blame brook lynn for any part of this. I don’t blame brook lynn. I blame you. You are the reason my granddaughter is missing. Dad! You’re the one who insisted that you move out here to this beach house with no security. We did have security. I’m — I’m a cop. Yes, a cop who just got himself suspended for exercising poor judgment. Dad, stop it. Okay, I made the choice for the two of us to move in here because it was the best choice for bailey. And there is no one I trust more to keep me safe than…chase. He has been wonderful. So if you want to blame someone, blame me. Look, I can promise you one thing, okay? There’s absolutely nothing you could say that’s gonna make us feel worse than we already do. We just have to focus on finding bailey, okay? Yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. You’re absolutely right. And I’m sorry. I’m trying to get a handle on my temper when I get upset or worried. And right now I am terrified. So I apologize. I know. Sam: Did you get ahold of sonny?Carly: No. No, I-I guess he’s still waiting at the haunted star. The haunted star?

[ Chuckles ] Long story. Yeah. Something to do with your separation?

[ Sighs ] Sonny planned this big romantic gesture tonight at the haunted star, and he wanted me to show up as a signal that I am willing to try and make our marriage work. Dante is gone, so there’s nothing keeping you here now. Oh, you sound like drew. I was with him when I found out about dante. I was really torn about showing up for sonny tonight because it felt less like an invitation and more like an ultimatum. But then drew helped me see that it’s not a line in the sand, right? I mean, it’s — maybe it’s something that sonny really needs. Drew called it, um, a cry for help, and that really resonated with me. It did. And I thought maybe I could do this for sonny, you know? I could show him that i am willing to try. I admire that. But I get your hesitation. You two have some, uh — some real issues. We do.You don’t have to forgive him just because he wants you to. No, I know, I know, and look, my — my faith and my trust in sonny are really shaken right now. And I know that everything is not going to be repaired because I show up, you know. That’s gonna take some time. No, tonight would be about affirming my desire to at least try, and i can meet sonny halfway on that. Good. Just make sure he’s meeting you the other half of the way.

[ Laughs ] Absolutely.

[ Sighs ] Okay. Thank you. You know, I-I really — I really do think that sonny and i can have a fresh start after all. I do. I shouldn’t have done that. I am so sorry. Hey. Don’T. I’m not.

Dante says that you believepeter took bailey. Why do you think that? Who knows what rationale that maniac has for anything? The important thing is that we find them as soon as possible. Where did those cops go? They’re doing a search outside the property. Peter has to have an end game. There has to be a reason that he thinks he can use your baby as leverage. What, does he want something from you or… okay. …Or from the quartermaines? What is it? Hold — hold on. First things first. We got to find out — d-does peter still think that valentin is bailey’s father? Because if that is the case, we got to send a protective detail over to him and charlotte. Right. Yes. Don’t waste the manpower. This isn’t revenge on valentin. Okay. Well, why do you say that? Do you know something, chase? We can’t keep this up anymore. Wait, what is going on? Honey, if you know something, you need to tell the police.

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ] It’s not my secret to tell. She’s right. It’s mine. Austin: I know it’s a lot to take in. It is. I’m just so happy that my granddaughter has been safe and nearby all this time. I even know what she looks like. I just hate that she’s with peter, but it’s just a small window of time, which gives us a better chance of finding her. The trail hasn’t gone cold. You spent months searching, chasing after… …fake chloe. And she doesn’t even exist. Robert, what must you think? What do I think? I think that your daughter is absolutely brilliant. You know, pretty soon, we’re gonna have to ditch this car, louise. Won’t be too long before someone recognizes me driving it.

[ Sighs ] I want you to know, I’m not this disorganized usually, either. Left too many loose ends this time, although small price to pay for finally getting to hold you in my arms. Although unfortunately, it also means your daddy’s gonna have to make another deal with the devil one last time to get us out of here. Let that be a lesson, louise. Your daddy will do anything for you. Move the men into position and await my call. I’ll send the coordinates momentarily. As long as he stays in your car, we’ll be able to track him. I installed a gps device for that very reason. Oh. [ Scoffs ] I can’t wait to see his smug little face fall flat when we finally catch up with him.

[ Cellphone rings ] Ah. Oh, wait a minute. This is from bruce’s burner phone. Hello, peter. Hello, friend. Bet you thought you’d heard the last from me. So sorry to disappoint.

[ Both chuckle ]

An, maxie? I wasn’t gonna say anything, I swear. I’m just — I’m so worried about bailey. And there’s no point in keeping this a secret anymore, maxie. Ned: Wait, wait, wait. What the hell’s going on? You’re right. It’s time. It’s the only way we’re gonna find louise. Honey. You mean bailey. No, anna.

[ Sniffles ] Bailey is louise. Bailey is my daughter. Thank you so much for telling us about this and being such a good friend to maxie. Oh, it’s a pleasure. I just wish there was more I could do. I’m just sick knowing that peter has louise. I just hope they don’t vanish before we get a chance to find her. Okay. I’ve alerted the team. Much easier to track a guy traveling with a baby than it is a guy alone. So we’re gonna get this bastard, felicia, and when we do, we’re gonna put him away. Unless, of course, I accidentally shoot him. Anna’s on this. Right now mac needs us. Listen, if there’s anything else I can do, just let me know. Will you stay a minute? Uh, yeah, I can do that. Thank you. What? Aren’t you happy to hear my voice? You should be. I’m ready to tell you everything you need to know about drew cain. But first, I just need one more small addendum to our deal. How many times do you think I’ll let you play me, peter? Well, come, now, victor. It’s always been my intention to uphold my end of the bargain, but I just couldn’t let you detain me, not when I needed to get to my daughter. But now that I have her, I just need one small favor from you, and then I’ll give you the information, and then you’ll never have to hear from me again. Won’t that be nice? Oh, save it, peter. You’re of no further use to me. Tell the men there’s a baby in the car. Goodbye, peter.

Oh, one more thing, victor. If you’re planning to track me using that gps device that you installed, I’ll have you know, I threw it into a ditch. What is it you want this time? Safe passage out of port charles for myself and my daughter so that we can begin our new lives where no one can find us. Sonny?
