I-I have a lot on my mind. Okay, well, I got plenty of time here, so what’s on your mind? This is probably a stupid question, but…

two happenecarly. Hey. Hey. Hi. Hi. Hi. Hi. So, what’s in the box? Hopefully the answers to finding willow’s birth parents.

[ Sighs ] Hey. Willow, you okay? Sure you got enough to eat?

[ Sighs ] Does it matter? It’s not like it’s going to stay down. If you’re here to lobby for an invite to my party… I’m not. I’m not. Britt, I haven’t been honest with you, and I intend to fix that right now. Oh, is that the blq that saved christmas? Don’t hug me. I’m sick. Oh, no. With what? The flu? Bronchitis? Strep? My kids have had everything. I don’t know. But I feel like hell. Zero energy, and I can’t sleep. I have this huge headache. Hoping a doctor can prescribe something to get rid of it. What time’s your appointment? Not soon enough. Okay, well, I can wait with you. It’s the least I can do since you got me to georgie in time for christmas. With a major assist from your ex. You can say his name, you know. I’m fine. Really? Yeah. I mean, you know, breakups are hard, especially during the holidays. But I don’t have to tell you that, do I?

[ Cellphone chimes ] I’m telling you, when that engine came to life, it was like an actual christmas miracle. And then the fact that britt used it to get to the quartermaines’ to deliver a baby?! Brando would be so proud. I know. He would be so thrilled to know that his motorcycle helped someone.

[ Laughs ] I mean he would be proud of you. I know i am. Brando would be proud of you, too. No. Mnh-mnh. He would. Gladys, the way that you have stepped up for me… I don’t even know how to thank you and tell you how much it means to me. We’ve come a long way, huh? I bet you brando is looking down on us right now… smiling. God, I miss him. Me too. Will the party you’re meeting bring their own security? That’s why I brought you and frank here. Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst. If the worst happens? Then we make them regret they ever crossed me.

who exactly are we dealing with? A group that wants to run exports through port charles. That’s all you need to know, dex.

[ Knock on door ] Mr. Corinthos. I came alone. Roman hume. I know you’re a busy man, so I don’t want to waste your time. Should we get started? First and foremost, I don’t negotiate. You want to do business here, you follow my rules. Or what? You don’t want to find out. All checked in? What makes you think chase and I have broken up? Have you talked to him? Nina told me that chase ended up performing at gingerbread jam, from which I deduced that he was not hurt or sick, which led me to believe that something went down with the two of you for you to think that he wasn’t coming. Wow. That is some sleuthing. Unless my relationship radar is on the fritz? I wish. Unfortunately, it’s spot-on. So when did it happen? Sometime around thanksgiving? How did you know that? Well, you were putting on a pretty good face at work, but I could tell something was going on.

[ Sighs ] So what’d you do?

[ Scoffs ] What makes you think it wasn’t chase who messed up?

[ Chuckles ] Brook lynn, I love you, but chase is basically a boy scout in a man’s body. Oh, he’s not that innocent. Really? Yeah, he cheated on willow. That was fake to get wiley away from nelle.

[ Sighs ] You’re right. Chase is, like, the most selfless person on the planet. And I am… not. How delusional was i to think I could hold on to him? I still can’t believe I own actual diamond studs! What a christmas gift from the best daughter-in-law. They look fabulous on you. They really do, don’t they? Hey, I’m sorry to interrupt. I just wanted to say “hi.” Hi. Gladys, this is — harrison chase, former detective turned pop star. I saw your performance on the gingerbread jam. Downloaded the new single right away.

I’ll find a way to you catchy. I appreciate that. Would you like to join us? I’m just here to pick up a to-go order. Oh. Okay. Well, at least let me get you a mimosa while you wait… on my way back from powdering my nose. I won’t take no for an answer. I’ll be right back. Look at you, all famous. Guess I’ll have to say I knew you when.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Humming ] Selina: Gladys corbin. Just the woman I was looking for. I don’t have time for this conversation. I have important party prep to plan. Britt, just hear me out, and you’ll never have to see me again. Well, that is an offer I can’t refuse.

[ Sighs ] Any day now, cody.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I’ve asked you to hear me out, and… I don’t even know where to start. The beginning works. Okay. All right, then. Uh… when we first met, I was playing you. I had zero romantic interest in you. Wow. Don’t sugarcoat it. No, look, all right, you were just this uptight drunk girl that I crashed into when I was parachuting into a pool. I-I mean, you were beautiful, obviously. You are beautiful. But I do tend to date girls with a little more chill. Okay. Can we — is there a point in here somewhere or… okay. But… then I found out something that did make me more interested in you. Your father. Suddenly you became the key to changing my life — in more ways than one. You remember brian, the guy I told you about, right? Your reporter from clairborne county? Right. Well, he did a deep dive through the county’s records, and he managed to find a photograph that was actually taken on the commune. Oh. I’m surprised they are any photographs of that place. Yeah, well, there’s not many, but there was a photojournalist who was trying to do a whole story and got shut out, but managed to get a photo of josiah, the commune leader. So I had brian do a whole background check on all the josiahs in the tri-state area that matched around the same age. And unfortunately, there’s no evidence that any of them were part of the commune. So our best bet is to take their photographs and compare it with the one that we have of josiah. And see if any match. Yeah, I mean, that’s our best bet of finding this guy and seeing what he knows about willow’s birth. Mommy, are we going sledding? Not today, sweetie. But you promised. We will go sledding another day. Okay? It’s just, daddy and I have to go to the doctor right now. You’re always at the doctor. Hey, wiley, how’s this? I will take you sledding when mommy and I get back. Okay? But I want mommy to come, too. I know. I know you do, wiley.

[ Knock on door ] But…I-I can’t today. No, no! No doctor! I want to go sledding now!

the name faison,but I had no clue he had kids. I just knew he was an associate of my father’S. Leopold taub. I realize that your father may have had some of taub’s possessions, and if that were the case, they belonged to you. So I decided to get close to you. And was this before or after we matched on society setups? Before. Spinelli matched us up because I asked him to. And he just did that out of the goodness of his heart. I didn’t really give him a choice. Aka you blackmailed him. I knew that you wouldn’t give me a chance if I didn’T. Okay, so this proves more or less what I already knew. And it certainly doesn’t change anything. So — so what is the point of this big confession? Okay, look, I’m not condoning what you did, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t get it. Really? You don’t think I’m a horrible person? Brook lynn, come on. You know I would never think that about you. Especially after what you did for bailey and me. I bet chase would disagree. Yeah, well, playing god with his future — probably not the best idea. Now the universe is paying me back. I probably have some rare disease. I think you’re being a little hard on yourself. Did you make a mistake? Yes. Are you human? Also yes. I just kept hoping that chase would come around, you know? He still might. No. Chase has made it abundantly clear that our relationship is strictly professional. Dude, karma is real. My mystery fever got way worse after that. You don’t feel hot. I meant it metaphorically. So no fever? I’m actually having super-weird symptoms. This is more serious than I thought. It was really good to see you again on christmas eve. It was good to see you, too. How have the holidays been? You mean without brando? That time of year can be hard in general. When you add in what you’ve been through… it’s been a struggle. I’ll bet. But I’m okay. It [Sighs] It’s funny. While brando and liam have been on my mind constantly, I’ve also been very aware of how lucky I am, how just surrounded by love I am from friends and family. I’ve barely even had a chance to feel lonely. I’m glad. And I hope you include me in those friends and family. I do. Because if you ever need to talk, or if you need anything, I’m here. Thank you, chase. I-I hope this doesn’t sound out of bounds… what? You seem good. Like, in a more stable place. I am. You know, I’m — I’m really trying to get better. Not just for me, but for brando. He only ever wanted the best for me. For me to be whole and happy, healthy, to pursue my dreams, whatever they may be. No, brando didn’t care if I was a model or a veterinarian’s assistant… as long as I was happy. So little by little, I am finding my way. Learning to trust myself again. And I admit — it feels good. Does that mean your guardianship could be over soon? How was your, um, holiday?

[ Chuckles nervously ] Could have been better. Seeing as how you owe me money. About that. Um… don’t worry. I understand. You do? I’m not an unreasonable woman, gladys.

[ Laughs nervously ] Well, I really am sorry. The last couple poker games I was at, well [Stammers] Things just got away from me. I swear, it was just bad luck. Your luck is of little concern to me. Your debt, on the other hand… so should we discuss when you intend to pay me back? Wiley is in his room in time-out. I told him he can’t talk to his mother that way no matter how disappointed he is. -Mm. -What a welcome, huh?

[ Laughs ] Hi. Oh! Hi. Thanks for coming on such short notice. Melanie, she’s having a family emergency. It’s okay. You know I cherish any time I can have with my grandson. Even when he’s acting out? I remember how you were when I was pregnant with morgan. Oh, I was angelic, I’m sure. Oh, yeah. I think wiley sees all the attention the baby’s getting, and he’s wondering if there’s any left for him. I think it’s pretty normal. Oh, well, that…makes sense. I come bearing good news. Yeah? Yeah. While you guys are at the doctor, carly and i are gonna be working. We’re gonna be working to find your birth parents. I couldn’t believe it when you gave me the news. And I can still hardly believe it now. My birth family may still be out there. Thank you, drew. I really appreciate everything you’re doing. Both of you. Yeah, no thanks needed. We should get going. Okay. Alright. How long is wiley in jail? I told him 30 minutes. Just text us if you need anything. Okay. Take your time. Drew: See you. Bye. Time to get to work.

No disrespect intended,but there’s always room for negotiation in business. All right. If you’re gonna move potentially dangerous materials through my territory, then I’m gonna need assurance. We acknowledge the corinthos organization holds these ports. The goal isn’t trouble with you — merely to ship our goods via your facilities. And my superiors need assurances from you, too. Tell me what they are, and I’ll see if I can accommodate. Their biggest concern is discretion. We need to know the details of our operation won’t be leaked. Discretion is mutual. I don’t want any blowback to me or my organization. And I don’t want anything to happen to any innocent civilians. Meet those conditions, we won’t have a problem. Is this assurance enough for you? It’s a start. Like I said, it was a streak of bad luck. I can recoup my losses in no time, um, if you’ll just have my back. Of course I will. You will? I’m thrilled you’re enjoying my poker games. Oh. The other players say you have a knack of livening up the room. Oh, well, I-I love those guys. We — we have a lot of fun. So I’ll see you at the next one? Um… truthfully, I’m running low on cash. So add that to what I already owe you, and — perhaps we can work something out. I’m definitely headed in the right direction, but I don’t think I’m quite at the finish line yet. And shockingly, things have been pretty good with gladys at the helm. Really? I was nervous at first. You know, the thought of a guardianship without brando seemed impossible. He was pretty much the only one I trusted to control my life. But gladys is doing a good job? Better than good. It’s actually brought us closer together. Wow. Who would’ve thought? Not me. I just wish it didn’t take a tragedy to make it happen. Yeah. Life is kind of bizarre that way, isn’t it? Sometimes it takes something horrible to make you appreciate everything you had to begin with. Well, just so there’s no misunderstanding, you have me. Okay? I’m always in your corner. Right back at you. This definitely isn’t the guy either. Carly: No.

[ Sighs ] Okay, what if we’re wasting our time? Even if we do find this josiah, what are the odds that harmony told him anything? I don’t know. I don’t know. But we’re running out of options. I already did a search on babies and pregnant women that went missing in the tri-state area, and I got nothing there. I-I don’t understand. How does a child disappear without any record of it?

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh, this is aurora. I got to take this. Okay. I’ll be here. Hey.

[ Muttering ]

[ Door closes ]

[ Sighs ] Well, hello, josiah. I’m telling you all this because… I was hoping that maybe it’d convince you to give me another chance.

[ Laughs ] Wow. Sorry. That — that just came out.

[ Chuckles ] What I meant to say was, why would I? You lied to me. You manipulated me. I know. I know. And I am so, so sorry for all of it. Britt, I know people say this all the time, but it’s true — if I could go back, I would, becau– the more time I spent with you, the more I started enjoying it, the more I started enjoying you. Who wouldn’t? You’re incredible, britt. There’s no excuse for my actions. No, there isn’T. But I did start to develop real feelings for you. By the time we found the necklace, I almost didn’t even care about it anymore. Almost. No, no. Hey. Whoa, whoa. What I really cared about was you. Okay, I didn’t know what to do. All of a sudden, the thing that I had been chasing was standing right in front of me and…

[Sighs] …To just let it go didn’t feel right. And I didn’t want to lose you either. I didn’T… yeah, you wanted your cake and eat it, too. Well, you know, joke’s on me because I ended up losing both. Unless I didn’T. Britt, I see now how wrong my actions were. How my agenda got between us and what we were building. The real thing that I think that we could… I think we could get back to if you just let us, britt.

Less I’m totally off baseand you disagree that… what happened between us was real. No, it was. Okay, then. And there is a part of me that wishes we could get it back. Well, then just listening to that part, you know? Forget about the rest. I can’T. Cody, you used me. And that is just… it’s messed up. I know, I know. But doesn’t it count for something that I’m owning it? It does. The fact that you came to me, heart on your sleeve, that takes guts, and I really do appreciate it. Yeah, but that’s not enough. Look…

[Sighs] …Just so we’re clear, I… I know what it’s like to make mistakes, okay? Like, huge, life-altering ones. So I’m not — I’m not being hypocritical here. It’s just… I can’T. See, you keep saying that. You keep saying “can’T.” Like there’s something that’s keeping us from giving this another shot. From where I’m standing, britt, it’s just you and me. All right? So what is it? Tell me. What’s keeping us from trying to see how good we could be together? How long have you not been feeling well? It’s actually been quite a while. I remember feeling particularly bad the day chase ended things. As if life wasn’t crappy enough, I had to go and get sick on top of it. What are your symptoms? Aside from no energy, headaches, and lack of sleep? Well, I’ve lost interest in basically everything. Even things I used to love, like my job. Good to know. What else? Well, my chest is all tight, I have a stomachache, and my eyes are all watery. I’ll just start crying out of nowhere. You know, I read online that that could be a sign of pesticide poisoning. Do you think olivia’s sneaking in non-organic products? I don’t think olivia is your problem. Well, I’m not pregnant, if that’s what you’re thinking. I wasn’t gonna go there. Then what’s wrong with me? You’re not sick, brook lynn. You’re in love.

[ Scoffs lightly ] So are you gonna tell me what happened between you and brook lynn at the gingerbread jam? What makes you think something happened? Well, I mean, we were all worried that you weren’t gonna show for the performance. And then there you were, last minute. Very astute. I try. I found out that brook lynn did something for me. Very vague. I try. No, brook lynn finally submitted a letter on my behalf to the ccrb. But I thought the meeting already happened, and the board made their decision. They did. But apparently they read the letter anyway, and they agreed to revisit my case. Chase, that’s amazing. Mm-hmm. I mean, it’s no guarantee, but who knows? At least there’s still a chance. Thanks to brook lynn. Yeah, it appears that way. So… does that change things for you, knowing what she did? You’ve dug quite the deep hole for yourself, mm? In debt with no means to repay it. Um… what about… these should cover part of it, right? I trust these aren’t cubic zirconia? No, no, no, no. They’re the real deal. And if you’ll just extend my credit for one more game, I will win back the rest. I’d be happy to. You would? Of course. How else will you break that bad luck streak? But be warned — your line of credit is only good for one game. After that, all bets are off… pun intended. Mm?

[ Laughs ] Carly: Yeah, it’s definitely him.

[ Sighs ] Carly? I love my hardwood floors. But honestly, I didn’t really know how to take care of them. That’s until I found swiffer wetjet wood. It’s specially made for wood floors with a microfiber-like pad that’s really soft. And it sprays with a light mist that dries in half the time. That dirt and grime gets absorbed and locked away. The coolest part… it prevents streaks and haze better than my old mop. Yeah, this is definitely the way to go. Wetjet wood with a money-back guarantee. Also try new sweeper wood cloths. Nicorette knows quitting smoking is freaking hard. You get advice like… just stop. Go for a run. Go for ten runs. Run a marathon. Instead, start small with nicorette, which will lead to something big. Introducing… weightwatchers simplified program. With an easy to use app and over 200 zero-point-foods you’ll never go hungry.

Just one dose starts to relieve 9 of your worst cold and flu symptoms, to help take you from 9 to none. For max-strength nighttime relief, nyquil severe. St getting my lipbalm because my lips are dry, you know, from the cold. Really? Mm-hmm. Because they felt pretty soft to me. Well, now they’re better. Mm. I do believe they are. How long did michael say wiley’s time-out was? 30 minutes. 30 minutes. Really? Yeah. Mm. Mm…

[ Chuckles ] I don’t want wiley to come down and see something he shouldn’T. Yeah. You’re right. We really need time together where we are just completely and totally alone. We really, really do. Meanwhile… any luck while I was on my call? Did you find anything? No. Unfortunately, no. Okay. Well, hail mary time, then. Well, you know, we knew it was gonna be a long shot. Yeah. It just doesn’t make any sense. How does a baby go missing and nobody files a report? That’s what happens. If it was me and it was my child, I’d be banging down doors. I’d be blowing up news stations trying to find my kid. It’s as if this baby vanished and nobody gave a damn. Okay, well, our theory that harmony took willow from her parents is just that. It’s a theory. Maybe something else happened. Yeah, like what? And this guy. This guy is the only guy that may have any answers, and who knows where he is? It’s almost like there’s another angle and we’re just not seeing it. Okay, I’m gonna have to put a stop to this. Michael, I just — I really want to go home. I’m exhausted. I know, but this is important. What is? Look at that those newborns.

[ Monitor beeping, baby fussing ] They’re beautiful. Yeah. And in the not-too-distant future, one of them is gonna be ours. And we’re gonna be standing here not thinking about cancer or chemo, but about how perfect our little girl is. She’s going to be perfect, huh? Oh, yeah. Just look at her mom. That is ridiculous. Isn’t it? I am not in love.

[ Scoffs ] Okay. Sure. I’m not! Look, do I care about chase? Yes, a lot. But we haven’t been together long enough for me to have fallen in love with him. It doesn’t take long. A couple months. You guys have been together longer than that. Hello? You faked having his baby. You guys lived together. He punched out two guys for you. I remember. And now he’s gone. And you feel terrible. This is the hardest I’ve ever taken a breakup.

[ Sighs ] The guilt I feel over hurting chase is, like, next level, and this feeling of emptiness, I just — I can’t shake it. Oh, god. I’m in love with chase. She says, like I didn’t just say that exact thing to her. Have I never been in love before? I guess I haven’T. That’s so sad. It is. But I think you’ve been waiting for the real thing. Yeah, so that I could finally find it and promptly throw it away. Do you think chase was in love with me, too? Brook lynn and I are done. So you showed up at the gingerbread jam just as a thank you? And because it’s the right thing to do. I made a promise to brook lynn to help take down her ex-manager — not just for her sake, but for every up-and-coming artist that he intends to prey on. And I’m committed to seeing that through. Sounds like the chase I know. So is brook lynn clear on where you guys stand? I told her that our relationship was strictly professional and we will never be in a romantic relationship again. Never say never. We’ll be in touch about getting things under way. Looking forward to it… as long as the conditions are met. You know to do with this. Yes, sir. That is not how I expected this meeting to go. What were you expecting, dex? For starters, I didn’t think the guy would show up alone. These guys are confident. They’re smooth. That’s why we have to keep an eye on them. Yeah. I was also surprised to see the guy was ex-military.

[ Sighs ] How do you know that? I didn’t even want to use a stupid matchmaking service, but my mother got a subscription to society setups and then nagged me until I used it, so I just finally caved. Do you regret it? If you’re asking if I regret meeting you, no.

[ Voice breaking ] But this… us — it just wasn’t meant to be. Maybe if things were different. No, I get it. I made one too many mistakes. Maybe more than one too many. For the record, it really means a lot that you came here to me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Goodbye, cody. Bye, britt.

I can’T. I can’t stop. I promised willow that I would find her birth parents. Okay, I don’t mean stop for good. I just mean maybe we take a little break, right? And then we come back to it with fresh eyes.

[ Sighs ] What kind of break we talking about? Well, I remember a certain someone gave me a key for christmas. Mm. That does ring a bell. I say we use that key and we get away, go somewhere where we can be alone and do whatever we want. I am seeing real wisdom in this plan. Yeah? Yeah. I have to go check on wiley. Yes. Okay. Brian. Hey. Drew cain. Yeah. I wasn’t able to determine josiah’s identity, so I’m gonna need you to question every josiah in the area. And do not stop until you find the right one.

[ Monitor beeping, baby crying ] Look, I know we’re going through a dark time right now. But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. When you say it, I actually believe it. Well, believe it. Willow tait, I love you. I love you, too. And wiley loves you. Our daughter loves you. Are you sensing a theme here? That’s a whole lot of love. Right. And there’s nothing more important in the whole world. Yeah, the four of us… we have a long life ahead of us… full of — full of joy, hope, laughter. And I need you to not lose sight of that. Okay? I won’t if you won’T. You got a deal. You’re late. Sorry. I was held up. Did you get it? I did. But it’s going to cost you. I’m just saying that it’s not outside the realm of possibility that you and brook lynn get back together. Look, I’m not there yet. And honestly, I don’t know if I’ll ever be. Fair enough. Well, whatever the future holds, I have faith that it will all work out for the best. You deserve it, chase. So do you. Well, I can’t speak for chase, but as an outside observer, he did step up for you time and time again. So if he wasn’t in love with you, he certainly cared — a whole lot. I’m the worst. There is a silver lining. What? Well, now that you know how you feel, there’s only one thing to do. Go to the store and stock up on ice cream. No. If you really love chase, you got to win him back. That was a long trip to the bathroom. Is everything okay? Oh, right. Yes. Yes. I got sidelined by a phone call, that’s all. You ready? Yeah. I’m just gonna check on a friend real quick, and then we can go. Okay. I’m prepared to hold up my end of the bargain. After tomorrow night, you have my word — I will never see brad again. You’ve given me your word before, and you’ve turned on me. How do I know that won’t happen again? You have that information over me, right? If I double-cross you, you can release it. Everything you asked for. All the documents you need… …to disappear. Trust me, I know ex-military when I see it, and that guy was. Pikeman does private military contracting. Maybe they’re promoting from within. Pikeman security group? You know them? Among others. We encountered a lot of private contractors when we were in the service. We knew to steer clear of them. You worried about me, dex? Don’t be. ‘Cause we’re gonna get everything under control. And the payoff is gonna be huge. You’ll see.
