THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
so beautiful. Isn’t it? There’s no rush here. You just take as much time as you want. We can… …come back tomorrow if you want. No, it’s okay. I’m ready. My god! Hello, robert. Holly? It’s me. Is it really you? Don’t tell me I look so awful that you don’t even recognize me.
[ Exhales sharply ] It’s really you.
[ Exhales sharply ] You’re the most beautiful sight in the world! Sasha: No one matching lucy’s description was brought into the E.R. Yeah. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I don’t know. On the one hand, it means she’s not hurt. But where is she? Ever since I got that call last night, I’ve been worrying about her nonstop. Me too. Why would the police be looking for lucy? When I got the call from dante last night, he was being intentionally vague, giving me that whole “I can’t discuss an ongoing investigation” thing. He just wanted to know if I had heard from her. Hey. Hi. I got a weird text. What’s going on? Lucy’s missing. Is everything okay? I saw the patrol car out front. Well, willow found a woman in the boathouse. Well, that doesn’t sound creepy at all. Well, we were hoping it was lucy, since nobody’s heard from her since yesterday, but michael and willow were just here, and apparently it’s robert scorpio’s dead wife. I’m sorry. What? Just another day at the quartermaines’. I’ve missed you, too. But why do you look like you’ve seen a ghost? We all thought you were dead. Why on earth would anyone think that? Where have you been for the last two years, holly? This is so typical of anna devane. Everyone knows she’s made it her life’s work to send you to prison. Well, I’m counting on that. There’s lucy. She turns, reacts…
[ Two gunshots ] …And then she’s shot. By you. I wasn’t there. That screen says otherwise. That is you, is it not? But there is an obvious explanation. You’re a murderer. No, I’m being set up!
I don’t know. Everything is all mixed up. I was on a…boat, I think. I think I’d like you checked out for a concussion. No, I’m fine. Yeah. I’d like a doctor to tell me that. Shall we? How in the hell did holly sutton get into our boathouse? Your guess is as good as mine. Ambulance is on the way. -Ambulance? -Yeah. Ambulance. You know, hospitals, medical people, stuff like that. I just need some dry clothes and a shower. And a guy with “M.D.” After his name. Look, this is not negotiable, holly. Still as stubborn as ever. Look who’s talking. Uh, ms. Sutton, I’m detective falconeri with the pcpd. Do you know how you got to port charles? Your last known location was monte carlo. I honestly have no idea. G.H. — Now. Fine, but no ambulance. And, uh, where’s your car? Would you like to drive? Don’t be ridiculous. They drive on the wrong side in this country. If lucy’s brought in, I’ll let you know right away, okay? Thank you. You’re welcome. I can’t lose anyone else. Listen, it’s way too soon to be thinking like that, okay? Do we know anyone who’s tougher or more resilient than lucy? No. Right. She’s a survivor. We need to remember that and think positive. You’re right. Austin. Hey. I was looking for you. Mason. I didn’t know you were still in town. Oh. Sasha, this is mason, austin’s cousin from pautuck. Nice to meet you. Likewise. Hey, uh, why don’t you two head home, and I’ll let you know if there’s any change? I’ll give you the news. I’ll catch up with you later. The thought of going back to my apartment is… when was the last time you ate? I don’t know, but I’m really not that hungry. No, that’s not gonna work for me. We’re gonna find the cafeteria. You can’t be here. You keep saying that to me as if it’s my choice. We both know it’s not up to either one of us. I didn’t shoot lucy! We just watched you do it! That’s not me! The woman found at the quartermaine boathouse, it wasn’t lucy. Oh, no. Search and rescue was right. But if lucy is gone, it’s because you killed her! -Keep your voice down. -Why should I?! You’re a lawyer, martin. You, of all people, know that video footage can be altered. Ohh. It’s fake. It’s fake. Yeah, and of course you would say that. Do you really think that anna would shoot lucy at point-blank range? And then just stand here and watch a video of it? I think anna devane’s a lot more complicated, maybe even cold-blooded, than she gets credit for. And why not? She’s a trained wsb operative. I’m sure that “wrongfully accused” is the first song they teach you at spy school! Just stop. I know you’re upset. I am, too. But you need to take a breath. I would never do anything to hurt lucy! Do not tell me to calm down. The last time I saw lucy, she was storming off to confront you. Now you’re here and she’s not. So what happened on that pier, anna? What was it? She wouldn’t give you what you wanted? Or she threatened to turn things around, so you got rid of her? Don’t you see this is all victor? This is victor! Wait here. Roz: Finally! What did you do? Where is she?!
[ Gu[ Elevator bell dings ] For the last time, I don’t need a wheelchair. For the last time, I want a doctor to tell me that. And I think I found one. Hi. Can I help you somehow? Uh, yeah. This woman was found wandering the quartermaine grounds. Oh, now I’m “this woman”? And I wasn’t wandering. Then what were you doing there? I don’t know. Memory issues. I’m concerned that there might be… a bit of damage. Hmm. I don’t want to be examined. Why not? Because I’m scared. Hey. Look. I’m gonna be with you every step of the way. And if there’s something wrong or if there’s a problem, better that it happens in here. Yes, no? Yes. Right. Hello. Hi. I’m holly sutton. This is my mother’s favorite spot. Yeah? Yeah. She would sit here and watch me down below catching hermit crabs.
[ Laughs ] I see it. No, you can’T. Sure, I can! Little caroline, running around on the beach, not a care in the world. Yeah? Well, that much is true. Scrambling over the rocks. Little bucket. Did you ever try to take one of those crabs home as a pet? No. No, I always would show them to my mom, and she always acted so impressed and amazed. Oh. But then we would always put them back because she said this was their home. And then she would joke, saying that she… …might live here one day. And now she will. Now she will. This feels right. You know? It really feels right. I’m glad. Laying my mother to rest at the ocean. There’s nowhere she’d rather be. Where do you think holly came from? Did the coast guard find a boat nearby? I don’t know. Hi? Hi. That’s more like it. Less out there and more in here.
Capiche. So why couldn’t you talk this morning? I had an engagement with my niece. A.K.A. A tea party? Yep. Well, I hope violet realizes she was having tea with a rock star. Okay, okay. Let’s not go overboard here. No, that’s not an exaggeration. Have you been following your social-media accounts? No. No, not really. Does that mean my set at the savoy went well? Uh, it didn’t “go well.” The people loved it. Look, the video that I posted, it has over 100,000 views already. Wow. “Wow”? That’s it? Chase, this is huge! You’re gonna be the next big thing! So what’s happened? Oh, no. No. Please don’t tell me you found lucy’s body. Did you actually kill her? Watch your tone with my client. There’s no sign of lucy’s body in the harbor. Tell us where she is. I don’t know! You’re lying! We watched the footage. Yeah, your little show. I’m — I’m sorry… that was very smart of you to arrange for a drone to fly over the docks precisely… what?! No! Ms. Devane is sounding completely unhinged! Please, will someone tell me what’s going on here?! We have a video that shows what appears to be a woman firing a gun twice at lucy coe. Oh, my god. Oh, no. So it was lucy that was shot. Oh, my god. Stop! Oh, I was clinging onto some hope that maybe she’d be found alive. Stop… officer!
So… how you doing?
[ Sighs ] I don’t know. Some days I feel like it’s gonna be okay, and others, I — I hang out at the hospital because I don’t want to be home without him. I remember that feeling. One of the worst parts about grief is that it’s not a straight line. It ebbs and flows. And, god, I just wanted an end date, you know, someone to tell me, “just make it to day whatever, and you’ll feel better.” That would be amazing. Yeah, it would. It’s unfortunate it doesn’t work like that. But I’m here for you, if you ever need to talk. Thank you, maxie. Oh. Excuse me. I’m sorry. I don’t want to interrupt. Um, I was hoping we could chat before I leave. I-I need a favor. So holly has zero memory of what happened? Mnh-mnh. She doesn’t even know how she got to the U.S. Chase, come here. Check this out. Look. What am I looking at? These are the comments from your latest performance. Look. “That voice, those eyes. I’m officially dead.”
[ Chuckles ] Look at this one. “Where can I get this song?” Reply — “never mind the song. Where can I get him?” Chase: Oh, wow. That’s embarrassing. What?! This is incredible! Look, we’ve got to release a single by the end of the week and an entire album by the end of the month. We got to give these people something to buy. Don’t worry. You’ll be able to perform live still. Man, do I miss that feeling — being in the spotlight, you know, in front of hundreds and thousands of people.
[ Cellphone rings ] Okay, I think this is the studio calling about the session I booked. I’ll be right back. Hi. This is brook lynn.
[ Footsteps depart ] Brook lynn’s, uh, really in her element. Brook lynn is having the time of her life. How about you? Hey. How’s holly? Gatlin-holt’s with her now. And how about you? How are you doing?
[ Door opens ] Oh, hey. Yeah, come on in. Hi. Uh, well?
[ Monitor beeping ] I think she’s great. Yeah. No — no double vision, no headaches. Mild case of hypothermia. Yeah, but this blanket’s doing the trick. Well, when’s she gonna be admitted? No, I’m not. I-I wasn’t asking you. How about this? How about I order an mri, and then when I get the results, we can discuss? That sound fair? Fair. Great. I’ll do that. So…
[ Door closes ] …Has anything come back to you? No, not yet. What’s the last thing you remember?
[ Sighs ] It’s all so foggy. Um… I was working for the wsb. Mm-hmm. And I was…investigating a casino in… monaco. Monte carlo. Hm. Yeah, ethan and I turned the place upside down looking for you. Ethan. How is he? Well, last I heard, he was pretty good. Mind you, he’ll be a lot better now that he knows his mother’s alive. I want to hear his voice. Well? I’m just realizing I have — I have no way of reaching him. On me. I’ll be outside. I got to talk to olivia about something. Okay?
[ Door closes ] Jordan: Let’s go. Thank you. You need to pull it together! Unless you want to be arrested for assault. I just couldn’t look at his smug face for one more second. You’re a professional. You know better. Cool down. Where do you think you’re going? In there. Unh-unh. After that little display? You’re out of this. Now. I want anna devane arrested! For? Did you not see what she just did to my client? Roz, not now. No. Now is not the time. A woman’s missing and might even be dead. The shooter was a female? It looked that way. But we still need to analyze the footage. Well, your tech experts are working on that, I assume. I — lucy’s attacker has to be identified! Robert. Hi. It’s me. You need to call me back as soon as you get this, because victor has made his move. He’s trying to frame me for lucy’s murder. No! Anna! Stop! That’s tampering with evidence. For god’s sake. Is this the surveillance footage? It is. Watch it. And have this woman arrested. For murder. Don’t get me wrong, I hate that we lost our fight to save the cemetery, but I think virginia would love being a part of the ocean that she loved so much. Two things can be true at the same time. Yes. I’m beginning to see that. Life. It’s quite the ride. I hate that my mother’s life was cut short, you know? I didn’t have the opportunity to say so many things that I’d want to say. Hey. It’s not too late. Say them now. You go ahead. I’ll be right here. Okay. Oh, virginia. You were a good mom. You were a great mom. And I’m so sorry that I didn’t always make you feel that way. I wish I could say this to your face.
[ Chuckles ] I wish you could know my kids. I wish you could be a part of our lives. But we can’t go back, no matter how bad we want to. I hope you’ve been at peace. And I hope you continue to be. I love you, mom.
So you’re alleging that I followed lucy all the way to a public pier, and then I shot her in full view of anyone who wanted to come by. And as you pointed out, I went to “spy school,” so surely I would have a more clandestine method to eliminate someone at my disposal. I basically put myself out there to get caught. Do you see that this doesn’t make any sense? I see the woman who blackmailed me, the same woman who, when I refused to spy for her, threatened to destroy my life. That’s a bit of an exaggeration. You use people, anna, any way you have to, to even the score in your own petty grudges. With people like you and victor, that gets dangerous real fast. And I should know. I watched my own brother do it for years. The stakes get a little too high, something goes wrong, someone like lucy gets in the way, and then you’ve got to get rid of the problem, permanently.
[ Door closes ] A.D.A. Arden. What’s going on here? Commissioner ashford, nice of you to join us. I was questioning a suspect. I heard. Now tell victor cassadine he’s free to go. How long did dr. Gatlin-holt say that the mri would take? He didn’T. You didn’t answer my question from before. How are you holding up through all this? You mean with my deceased ex-wife turning up alive and well? Yeah. That. Well, it’s a little overwhelming, but in a nice, warm, fuzzy way. It’s a miracle, robert. Now you are gonna get the chance to say all of the things that you didn’t think you’d have a chance to say. Hey. Austin. Uh, was wondering if I could get an update on holly sutton. Are you family? No. I’m not. Then you know I can’t tell you anything. Right. It’s f-for the investigation. I don’t need details or anything like that. I just — is she gonna get admitted or…? I’m recommending she stay for observation, but… okay. Can’t make a patient stay against her will. Right. What about that memory-loss thing? Anything to explain that? Oh, so much for no details. Ah, come on. Eh, there doesn’t seem to be any…physical reason for holly’s memory loss. Singing at the savoy was great. Connecting with the audience, getting lost in the music. I’m sensing a “but.” The whole time I was on stage, I was just waiting for it to be over. I enjoy singing. But it’s not your passion. I enjoy making people happy. And who doesn’t love a crowd cheering for them? But at the end of the day… it’s not making a real difference. Like you would be if you were on the force. Exactly. I want nothing more than to be a part of that investigation to find out who’s running around attacking people with a hook. I want to take that killer off the streets. Does brook lynn know about all this? Managing me means so much to her. And let’s be honest. I can’t be a cop right now. Which is entirely on me. I lost my cool, I punched linc, and now I am paying the price. And thank you for defending my daughter’s honor, by the way. No thanks needed. I regret the outcome. But, honestly, I can’t say that I wouldn’t do it again. Which is why the suspension is totally merited, but it doesn’t make me miss being a cop any less. God! It is pointless focusing on something that I can’t have. I need to focus on something that I can control. For brook lynn’s sake. Brook lynn: Sounds great. We’ll be there.
[ Cellphone chirps ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Beep ]
[ Cellphone rings ] Hello, linc. What can I do for you? I’ll help you if I can. Um, what is it that you need? Talk some sense into austin. Can you convince him to come home to pautuck for thanksgiving? We miss him something fierce. Oh. I didn’t mean to take you away from your family. You’re not taking me away for anything. I’m exactly where I want to be. You’d be welcome, too, of course. And your kids. Um, georgie, james, and bailey, right? That’s impressive. Why don’t we talk about this later? Didn’t you say you have to be on the road? Always looking out, aren’t you? Yep. Think about turkey day. I will. Walk you out. Gobble, gobble! Interesting guy. Yeah… A.D.A. Arden, thank you for taking an interest in this case. As soon as I was made aware, I knew it required my attention. I got to get out of here. If victor set me up, which I believe he has, he’s not gonna have stopped at the drone footage, and there’s gonna be other false evidence out there against me. I know. Go. Thanks. Martin: Oh, no! No, no, no. There’s no way you’re gonna let her walk out of here. Agent devane isn’t under arrest. But don’t leave town. No. Understood. Oh, isn’t that sweet? You give all your friends preferential treatment? Or just the guilty ones? Wait, wait. Sorry. I-I’m not following. A-are you saying you think anna did something to lucy? I know she did. You can see her plain as day on that video. The commissioner failed to mention that. Commissioner ashford, since your judgment is clearly compromised by your relationship with ms. Devane, it’s my opinion that you be removed from this case. You okay? Yeah. I’m feeling… so many things. Mostly free. You know, I mean, when I think about that emergency landing in jacksonville, I was so frustrated because I just wanted to get to where I was going. And that’s exactly what happened, right? I mean, my mother needed me to be here. And I needed to be here for my mother. Divine intervention.
[ Chuckles ] Yeah. It gave me closure with virginia. And it reminded me… of who I am… what’s important to me. My family. My friends. Hermit crabs. Hermit crabs.
[ Chuckles ] You.
I’ve been so focused on everything I’ve lost these past couple years. And it’s been a lot. But I’ve also gained something. What’s that? You. You dropped everything to help me. You slept on a really bad couch.
[ Laughs ] The couch. The couch was not so bad. Thank you for helping me. It meant so much to me. It meant just as much to me. I’m serious. Watching you face your past has made me take a good look at my own life. What did you see?
[ Indistinct conversations ] How’s the head? Still attached.
[ Both chuckle awkwardly ] Why don’t you give ethan a call? Maybe he’ll pick up now. Not exactly the kind of message you can leave on a — on a voicemail, is it? No. Uh, s-sorry. You — you are? Oh, I’m so sorry. Olivia quartermaine. I-I was at the boathouse earlier. That much I remember. I brought you some clothes for later when you get out of here, so… that’s really thoughtful. Thank you. There you go. Yeah. Of course. I got to tell you, it is — it is so wonderful to meet you. Although I feel like I already know you. Oh? Oh, ’cause I was — I was in monte carlo with — with robert and ethan when — when — when they were trying to find you. You should have seen what he went through to find you. It was really — I mean… well, I’ll let you tell her. But I got to tell you, it was really something else. You did all that for me? I don’t know why you’re so surprised. I’d do it again in a heartbeat. We did it! We’ve got him! Did what and got who? I knew this would work! I just knew it! Feel free to fill me in anytime. Linc called. He took the bait. Do not involve maxie in this. I’m not involving her.
You are. ‘Cause you’ve deluded yourself thinking that you can keep pautuck separate from your life here. You can’T. In all honesty, maxie and her kids would do better to just stay as far away from you as possible. I’m following the evidence without making assumptions. You saw the video. Can you say without question that the shooter is anna devane? Without question? No. Okay. So I’m sending the footage to I.T. They’ll do their best to determine if the video’s been altered in any way. Look, I think it might be worth mentioning at this point that whenever I was with lucy and anna’s name came up, lucy would get visibly uncomfortable. I agree. I didn’t think anything of it at the time, but now, well… I-I’m beginning to wonder if lucy might have been… afraid of anna? Add that to the evidence you’re “following.” Are you willing to make an official statement? Uh, yes, I-I suppose so. Does that mean you’ve changed your mind? If the person on the video proves to be anna devane, I will reassess. I can’t listen to any more of this. Until then, there’s nothing that links anna to lucy’s presumed death.
[ Beep ] Alright. Where would one plant evidence in my car?
The life that I came back to a year ago, that — that wasn’t the life that I-I left, and it took me a while to see it. But there’s beauty in that. And new beginnings. A new beginning for both of us. New beginnings can be scary. They can. But they can also be exciting and hopeful and… and full of possibility. I like the sound of that. So do I.
[ Both chuckle ] Is this okay? Yes. And you don’t have to ask me that ever again. Sasha: Mr. Grey? Ah. Sasha. Hi. I didn’t realize you were back in town. Yeah.Have you heard from lucy? No, nothing. And I’m not gonna give up until they find her. Uh, I was actually gonna check in with the E.R. You know, I know it’s futile, but, uh… better than sitting around waiting. Yeah. So, my young friend, how are you holding up? I am taking it day by day. It’s hard to think beyond that. Yeah. I heard from the judge. I have an update on your future. Right after I got off the phone with the studio, linc called. He said that he wants you to do a duet with one of his rising stars. I’ve actually heard her. She’s pretty good. And she’s got a pretty big following. And I think I have the perfect song for you two to sing together. Look, this will be a huge boost for your career. And one step closer to exposing linc for the predator that he is. Right! That, too. It’s really happening. Yeah. I’d like to change into these clothes now. You won’t be needing them, because you’re gonna stay here for observation. Uh, no, I’m not. Uh, I think that I will leave this between the two of you.
[ Chuckles ] Dr. Gatlin-holt said I’m fine. Dr. Gatlin-holt never said anything remotely like that. Or i will be once I’ve had a long bath and a decent meal, neither of which I’ll get here. I’m not gonna win this one, am I? Robert. Do you ever win with me? Anyway, I assume that the metro court is still around? It is. Perfect. I need a full english breakfast and some tea, preferably with some whiskey in it. I’m very sorry the police wasted your valuable time. Oh, look, all that matters is justice for lucy. As the commissioner said, just follow the evidence.
[ Suspenseful chord strikes ]
On the next “General Hospital” —
