[Soft dramatic music]

Mom. Hi.

Hi. I’m sorry. I did try calling before I came over.

Oh. Um, I’m sorry. I’m on my way out. I promised michael that I’d babysit when they prepped for willow’s transplant.

Well, I’m glad I caught you before you left. Willow’s not having the transplant.



Oh, sasha. Come on in.

Brook lynn, hi.

Hi. Good to see you. Hello, you three. Where’s the man of the house?

Uh, wiley’s up at the main house playing with annabelle ii.

Excellent. And how about you? How are you doing?

You know, I’m hanging in there.


[Laughs] And look at this little one. Hi, amelia. Oh, she’s so beautiful.

She is, and she is working it.


So is this a good time?

It’s a perfect time.

Yeah, we just, uh-

just want to chill at home while we can because uh, once the pcpd finds liesl obrecht, which we hope will be soon, we’re gonna be back and forth from the hospital again. You know, first with the chemo and then the transplant, and then happily ever after.


That’s great.Thanks let g1me kno

any word from the coast guard?

Uh, they got a reading on the ship’s transponder, but by the time they got to it, all they found was a transponder sitting on a buoy.

Still, the “haunted star” can’t just disappear. Someone must have seen something.

Yeah, well, victor’s doing everything he can to make sure that boat can’t be found.

Commissioner, hi. I’m here.


[Laughs] To give my statement. I had a very expensive piece of jewelry taken from my person last night. Uh, dante, maybe you can help me?

Yeah, uh, can you come back later, gladys?

I’d be happy to.


Except gelhorn jewelers lent the bracelet to sasha, and they’re not letting it go until cody bell pays for his crime.

Ok, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Yeah, innocent until proven guilty, remember? Excuse me.

Uh, so do i give you my statement?


Do you ever plan on growing up?



Nothing? No word on anna?

The surgeon said it could take some time.

Yeah, we’ve been up all night. Not even an update?

He hates feeling helpless. We all do.

Yeah. And right now, I’m not just worried about anna. Victor has two of my grandsons. I would just give anything to find out where they are, but all I can do is wait and pray.



Dr. Robinson, we have been waiting all night for word on anna devane.

Someone from anna’s team will be down shortly.

No, that’s not good enough. There’s got to be a reason for this extended silence. Something’s gone wrong, hasn’t it?

[Tense music]


Hey. Shh, shh. Thank god you’re safe. Why did you risk coming back here?

The risk was worth taking. I think I found a way off this ship.


[Dramatic music]


Look, I just need to know about anna devane.

As I stated, mr. Cassadine, anna is not my patient.

Ok, so she’s not your responsibility, so I’m not your problem?

I didn’t say that.

No, you’re not really saying much about anything. If you could just maybe not give me a bunch of hospital policy, not give me a bunch of excuses, and just get me some answers.

Valentin, that’s enough, or you’ll have to answer to me.

Wait. Hold on. So when dr. Obrecht didn’t reappear in the magic act, that-

that was real? She disappeared?

It looks like someone kidnapped her. Sonny sent dex to go check, and he found this charm that looks like it belonged to a bracelet, and they know it belonged to britt, and they found it in the crawlspace beneath the stage.

God. Actually, I need to talk to you about dex.

Sonny told me that he knows about you two.

Yeah, he–he caught us, and he told us that he’s known about it for months and that he was just disappointed in dex for lying to him. I mean, thank god dex saved his life.

What are you talking about? What do you mean, dex saved his life? When?

They–they were both in a warehouse, and someone was taking shots at sonny, and dex stepped in, and he saved him. He–he got grazed on the arm, but-


I knew he was injured, but you didn’t tell me he was shot. Why didn’t you tell me?

I didn’t even know he was shot until the day after. And you knew that something was going on with sonny. I mean, he wouldn’t even let the girls up to the penthouse.

Josslyn, sonny’s security issues are one thing. But when my daughter’s seeing a guy who gets shot, I want to know about it.

Ok, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I should have told you. But I’m ok, really. And believe me, I’m gonna be more than thrilled when this whole thing is over, but right now, spencer, his little brother, and dr. Obrecht are all missing. And if dr. Obrecht is missing, that means willow can’t get this transplant.

I know. Calm down, all right? Police are looking for obrecht, and I pray that they find her.

[Soft dramatic music] Josslyn, we’re gonna have to prepare ourselves.


I’m gonna call dante and see if there’s any update.


Wow. He’s really holding it together, huh?

He is. He’s been my rock.


Oh. Uh, nothing. Sorry. Sorry. I, um-

I fade in and out sometimes. Sorry, baby.

Willow, we know that you and michael are being strong for each other.

Everyone needs to vent sometimes, even you. So whatever you’re feeling, just say it.


[Sighs] I know that michael believes that everything is going to be ok, because that’s what he has to believe. But at some point, we have to face facts. And the fact is the pcpd may not find dr. Obrecht. At least, not in time to save me.

[Somber music]

Did you call a lawyer?

I can’t afford to hire one. Public defender is just gonna try and get me to plead out, which I’m not gonna do because I’m innocent.

Well, the evidence says otherwise.

Dante, come on. You know me. Even if I did try and steal that bracelet, you really think I’d try and hide it in my jacket pocket?

Look man, I don’t know. But the thing is, I got three missing people. I just-

I don’t have time to help you.

Yeah, I hear you. I really do. But, look, I’m gonna sort this mess out myself, ok?

How? From inside a jail cell? Why don’t-

why don’t you call mac?

[Laughs] He’s the one who arrested me.

Well, maybe you should have told him to look for his son.

And then–and then what? He’d have the pleasure of putting his son in the slammer?



dude, it doesn’t really matter, ok? I–I already made my one phone call. Help’s on the way.

[Tense music]

Good morning.

How are we going to escape? We’re at sea, and we have no way of communicating with anybody.

Maybe we do, ok? I–I was in the utility closet, and there was all these maps of the ship. So I got to studying…

of course you did.

And it showed the communications room on the map, located at the front of the ship.

The bow?

Yeah, whatever. So I snuck out, and I did some snooping, and I managed to find the room. There has to be a radio there, right?

You didn’t check and see?

No. There was somebody coming, so I had to get out of there as soon as I could, but if there is a radio, I can-

I can call for help.

Well, you’d have to find a way to sneak back into that room without someone noticing you. And trina, if my uncle finds you, do you have any idea what he will do to you? He doesn’t need you as a hostage. He’ll throw you overboard.

It’s our only option.

[Sighs] So this is the plan.

[Suspenseful music]


So I stayed in the closet until around 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning. I figured victor would only have a skeleton crew on lookout, and I was right. He only had two on the left-


port side.

Uh-huh. And then three on the other side. There’s basically zero visibility of the communications room if they all go on their smoke break at the same time.

Ok. That’s how you found it. How are you gonna get back?

I’ll stay out of sight until-

until tonight. And then I’ll make a break for the office and then radio for help.


I’m sure my nephew

will come around soon.

We just have to make sure.



We finally, finally get a donor, and–and she’s gone?

I know, and it’s crazy. I can’t believe victor took them all, all three. He took spencer, the baby, and obrecht. And I know the police are gonna follow every lead, and they’re gonna talk to every witness, but, god, I pray they find her.

How long is that gonna take? Because willow gets weaker every time I see her. It’s like with oscar, you know? You–you try to stay positive, and you-

you pray for a miracle. But what if that miracle never comes?

[Somber music]


I know.


Excuse me, commissioner.

If you will have a seat over there.

Ok, I-

I am sure whatever everybody’s buzzing about around here is important, but I’m here about a very expensive bracelet.

Someone will take your statement. But we’re very busy, so it might be a while. Perhaps you should come back later.

Aren’t cops supposed to take statements from the victims while the details are fresh? Who knows what I might forget about cody’s crime.

What are you doing here?

Cody called me.


He said that he had no one to turn to.

I didn’t sound that desperate.

No, those were your exact words, actually.

Yeah, but I don’t think you accurately captured my tone.

Well, I’m here. So how can I help?

Maybe you could convince him to hire a cheap lawyer.

I believe she was asking me what I needed.

I believe you have the right to remain silent. Maybe you can help him out with that?

Hey, why don’t you do me a favor? I’ve got this. Please go out and find victor and those hostages.

Yes, ma’am. Bye-bye.

Thank you for coming, sam.

Yeah. So how can I help?

I need you to bail me out.

I can’t just post bail. You have to see a judge first.

No, no, I know. I’ve been arraigned before. But I promise I’m good for the bail money. I won’t go anywhere.

Says the guy with the hot bracelet?

Ok. That was a frame, sam. I don’t care what you’ve heard. I’m being set up.

Said every thief ever. Hell, I’ve even said it, I don’t know how many times, and I was guilty every single one of them.

Ok, well, allow me to be the exception that proves the rule. Someone planted that bracelet on me.

And that is when sasha noticed the bracelet was missing.


Nothing. It’s as though victor, the ship, and the hostages all vanished into thin air.

You know what? I think I know someone who might be able to help us.

[Soft dramatic music]


This is a private conversation. This doesn’t concern you.

It does when it concerns my wife. Now show some respect.

Let me, um-

let me see what I can find out.

Thank you.

I want you to keep a close eye on spence-


[Tense music]

Ambrose, search the ship.


Oh. Hello, uncle. Is something wrong?

She found it.

I am holding on to hope. But at the same time-


in my experience, blind hope can get in the way of saying goodbye.

Exactly. I don’t want michael’s last memories to be of me desperately waiting for the phone to ring. I want him to remember us as a loving family.

Of course, he will.

Amelia won’t remember me at all. And wiley’s so young.

[Soft dramatic music] I want michael to be able to show the kids my picture and say, “look, that’s your mom. See how happy she was?” It’s ok. It’s because she loved us all so much, and she always will.

We can make sure that happens.

See? Sometimes life does come with a guarantee.

That’s why we can’t wait until after the transplant to throw some big wedding. We’re out of time.



It’s ok.

When was the last time you saw trina?

Last night. Maybe she knows something that could help us track down spencer.

Thank you.

I have news. Anna is just out of surgery, and they’re getting her set up in the icu room as we speak.

Can we see her?

After a surgery like this, it might take a while before she wakes up, but yes. Yes, you can.

I don’t want to crowd anna. You go on in first.

I’ll let you know how she is. Dr. Robinson, I am sorry. I shouldn’t have spoken to you that way.

Apology accepted. Please, go. Go see anna.

Let me know if there’s anything else I can do, please.

Uh, portia, could you wait for a second, please? Excuse me.


What’s up?

I’m sure it’s probably nothing. Have you heard from trina lately?

[Tense music]

You were going over to michael and willow’s, so-

I think the more family, the better. It’s good for them. So why don’t I go with you?

Sure. I’d like that.

All right.


Hey, joss. Hey, carly.


Um, you guys seen trina?

Um, no. No, she’s not here. But come in.


What’s going on, dante?

Well, we’re looking for spencer, actually.

Spencer? I thought that victor cassadine had spencer and his little brother.

Well, we don’t know that he’s got spencer. But trina and spencer were together at the ball. They probably hung out after the ball. So I’m wondering, maybe she could help us, give us a timeline of his whereabouts.

I haven’t seen trina since the ball.

But she was staying here at the dorms, right?

Well, yeah. She was supposed to come back here. We were gonna go to a party together, but I–I remember she was worried about spencer, so she went to check on him and see if she could help him out with anything.


You haven’t seen her since?

No, but her mom came by here yesterday looking for her, but like I said, she wasn’t here.

So no one’s seen trina since the ball?

Not that I know of.


So you’ve been enjoying the sea air?

I wouldn’t know. I’ve been locked up in this stateroom.

Yes. Unfortunate but necessary precaution, till you realize that everything I’ve done has been for your own good.

[Laughs] That’s why you’ve kidnapped me and my brother? For our own good?

Oh, spencer. I didn’t kidnap you. I invited you here, and you accepted.

No, you asked me to join you on your ship, and then when I did, you stole the boat out of the harbor without asking me if I wanted to come.

I am the head of this family. I don’t need to ask anyone anything. And besides, even if I’d given you the choice, the outcome would have been the same. You want to be where your brother is. I need your brother to be with me. So here we all are.

If the point of bringing me along was to make sure that I could spend some time with my brother, how about you let me see him?

Ok, in good time.

Listen to me. I do not work for you, and I sure as hell don’t take orders from you.

I suggest you change that attitude. My son knows what I’m capable of when crossed. I’d hope for you not to have to learn the same lesson the hard way.


[Devices beeping]


Gladys set you up?


[Sighs] God, she is a piece of work.

So you believe me?

I mean, I just-

I–I wouldn’t put it past her. But why?

Uh, ok. I–I told gladys that I was going to tell sasha that she-


was not to be trusted.

Ok, what did gladys do that you needed to warn sasha?

I can’t tell you that.

Why not?

Because I like my kneecaps exactly where they are, you know? They help me to walk, kneel, stay on a horse.

Oh, ok. I get it. You’re being threatened.

No, I’m not the one being threatened. Let’s just say that sasha needs to be really careful about whose hands she puts her life in.

Of course, you don’t want to wait to marry michael. This is your family. You want them to know forever and ever how much you love them.

And the best part is, you don’t have to do a thing. We will make sure this wedding happens.

Thank you both so much. But I haven’t even discussed re-rescheduling the wedding with michael.

[Sighs] I know he would have married me at the hospital months ago. I was the one who insisted on coming home. We were going to be married at the main house. Then we found out dr. Obrecht was a match. I told him I wanted to wait until after the transplant, to dance at my wedding, to really celebrate, and, of course, he agreed. He always wants to give me whatever I want. And now I’ve changed my mind yet again. I want to get married immediately. Isn’t that the same as telling him I’ve given up hope?

[Soft dramatic music]

May I speak to her surgeon?

The procedure was very long, so she’s not available for several hours.

Well, is there anybody else I can talk to?

The doctor did instruct me to inform you that she was able to remove the bullet. It missed the major organs and arteries. However, ms. Devane lost a considerable amount of blood. About an hour into surgery, she went into cardiac arrest.

Again? She coded in the ambulance.

Fortunately, the team was able to get her heart back to sinus rhythm and complete the surgery.

How long do you think it’ll take before she wakes up?

There’s no way to predict. She was under a long time.

So she should be awake right now? She isn’T.


How are you doing?

Mm. To be honest, I feel really uneasy. Just unsettled, you know? It’s like everything that’s happening right now is strangely familiar.

Like a déj vu?

It’s more than that. You know, when I was a kid, the cassadines had me trapped on that boat. Only back then, it was called the “titan.” Is history repeating itself with my grandsons?

Well, I had an extremely strained conversation-

no, no, no, I wouldn’t even call it a conversation-

a moment with trina at the nurses’ ball.

Ok. And after that?

I stopped by her dorm room to talk and check on her, but she wasn’t there, and she never showed up.


So she didn’t call or leave a text saying why she wasn’t gonna be there?

No, no, but she had no idea that I was going to be there. And it’s not like she’s calling or texting me that much nowadays anyway. Curtis, why? Why all the questions? What’s going on?

I know it’s probably nothing-


yeah, you keep saying that, but it’s clearly something.

You can’t ask me all these questions about trina and not expect me to ask why.

I don’t want to worry you.

It’s too late for that.

I texted trina last night that her mom was here, so maybe that’s why she never came back. Let me check something.

Look, I don’t mean to worry either of you. There’s really no reason to believe that trina is in any danger, ok?

Well, you showing up here looking for trina isn’t really giving off that vibe.

Dante, look at these texts.

It says they weren’t delivered.

Yeah, I know.

Can I call her?

Yeah, you can. I didn’t notice last night that they hadn’t delivered. Of course she’s not gonna respond. She never got them.


This is going straight to voicemail. I got to get out of here.

Well, no. You have to tell us what’s going on.

I’ve told you guys literally everything I know.

Victor cassadine has spencer, ace, and liesl obrecht. Does he have trina, too?

I know exactly what you’re capable of, and I have seen the damage that you have done.

[Tense music]

Uncle victor, you kidnapped me-

sorry, you relocated me-

without my consent because the only way that you can have a relationship with another human being is if you are in total, complete control. For god’s sake, you abducted an infant.


I tell you what. Why don’t I send for breakfast? I’m sure you’ll think more clearly on a full stomach. And then we can discuss the future, and I promise I’ll answer any and all of your questions.

Not here.

Another complaint about your accommodations? This is a stateroom.

I have been cooped up in it all night. We are surrounded by open water. I think you know damn well that I’m not going anywhere without my little brother, so you can trust me as far as the dining room.

Perhaps for lunch, hmm?

You say that I’m destined for greater things, and yet you keep me locked up in here, and I can only think of one reason why that might be.

I think that you’re afraid of me. Is that it? Am I right? Are you afraid of what I might do?

[Devices beeping]

You’re a fighter, you hear me? You can do this. I need you to do this. May I hold her hand?

Of course. I’ll give you some privacy now.

[Tender music]


Wherever you are… come back to me.


I have known michael most of our lives, and yes, he’s been through a lot. But that also means he’s survived all of it. And right now he is surviving this, out of love for you and wiley and princess amelia over here. Because he loves you more than anything.

Thank you. I know-


that’s why–now, michael, as we all know, is quite the multitasker. So he can believe with all his heart that dr. Obrecht will get back in time, so that you can have this transplant that you need for a long, long life, and at the same time, understand that you need to-


that you need to tell him and wiley and amelia how much you love them, how much you will always love them.


Even if I’m gone?


Ok. Say your story is true. I need to know all of the players. Who’s threatening gladys corbin?

You don’t want to know. Dante really doesn’t want to know. The cops cannot be involved.

All right. Now here’s where I-

I don’t understand what’s going on here. Because you are being threatened by some lowlife, and you would rather skip town than ask your friends for help? You don’t have to do this alone. Just give me a name.

This isn’t about me.

Um, you’re the one in custody, so I would say it has a little something to do with you.

[Sighs] It’s about sasha, ok? Gladys is in trouble. It could blow back on sasha.

Ok. Not that you shouldn’t, but why do you care what happens to sasha?

I don’t know. I guess we’re kind of friends. Please, just let me handle this my way. I know these people. I know how they operate. All I need to do is get out of this police station, and I can help my friend. I promise I won’t go on the run.

[Soft dramatic music]

Cody bell, time for your arraignment.


Please, sam. Back me up with the judge. Swear I’m not a flight risk.

Ok. You have literally given me no reason to trust you, like, ever.

There’s exactly one reason-

dante trusts me.

He does, doesn’t he?

Look, if I have any more questions, or either of you have any more information you want to share with me, we can talk then, ok? But otherwise, I really should go.

Come on, dante. Where else could she be? She’s not just gonna disappear.

Joss, I-

I don’t know what to tell you, other than you’ll know something when I know something, ok? In the meantime, keep your phone on. And if you do hear from her, please let me know.


I mean, what if she was with spencer when victor grabbed him?


Jordan. Hey, uh, no sign of trina.

Do you have anything else? Any physical evidence to connect her to spencer or victor’s disappearance?

No. Nothing yet. I’m going to go talk to portia. I’m gonna head to the hospital now.

I’ll meet you there.

As it turns out, spencer went missing last night, along with his little brother. And since trina was with him at the ball, she may have been the last person to see him.

Ok. I need to call trina.

It’s going straight to voicemail. Maybe she has her phone off. Trina? Honey, it’s mom. I–I just want to check and see if you’re ok, all right? So give me a call. She’s not gonna listen to that. I’m gonna text her, too.

I’ll call the university, have them do a safety check.

Curtis, the texts, they’re not-

they’re not going through. They’re going as not delivered.

[Tense music] What do I do now? I can’t-

I can’t reach my daughter?


I have this feeling that the answer to all of this lies in the past, you know? Like, some part of my history that I haven’t been able to connect with yet.

Well, let’s break it down. Victor finally has everything he’s after. He’s got the ice princess necklace, the decryption key. He’s got spencer and ace. Where would he go?

I don’t know. Some place that’s isolated where he could protect himself, I guess, if someone were to come after him.

So if someone did come after him-


I guess it would have to be a place where he has some kind of pull with the authorities.

Exactly. So thoughts?

Uh, I don’t know. A lot of the old cassadine haunts come to mind. They’re all pretty similar, you know? They’re fortresses and compounds and islands. They’re places where victor could go and just do whatever he wanted.

Think, where would the “haunted star” sail?

I know that the cassadines had some hideouts in, I think, uh, panama, ecuador.

There was one on the coast of venezuela, and that one was completely isolated because it was cut off from everything by miles and miles of tropical rainforest. In fact, you couldn’t even get to it, except by boat.

That could be it. We might have a lead.


All right, spencer. Tell me, what might you do?

Anything, if it meant being free. Wouldn’t you feel the same in my position?

You make a good point. But spencer, freedom is not a right. Freedom must be earned.

All I’m asking is to have breakfast in the dining room and to see my little brother and to not have a deadbolt on the outside of my door.

Well, I don’t suppose there’s any harm in you getting a little air and nourishment. But that’s only because we’re in the middle of the ocean.

Believe me, the sweet release of drowning is not the freedom that I long for.

Hmm. Very well. We will breakfast in the dining room. It’ll take a few moments to make arrangements. Can you bear your confinement a little longer?

Oh, I’ll survive. I always do.

I’ll send for you shortly.

If I find this deadbolt unlatched again, you’re gonna find yourself in some very deep, cold water, attached to a very heavy weight.


You ok? All right?

Yeah. You were right. We are so trapped here.

[Laughs] No, we’re not. No, we’re not. My uncle victor thinks that he has me all figured out, but he just made a terrible mistake.

I can’t reach my daughter, curtis.

Portia, trina is one of the most practical, level-headed young people we know.

Yeah, except when it comes to spencer cassadine though. That’s the problem.

Hey, maybe-

maybe her phone is dead.

That would explain the voicemail, but not the texts going through.

Ok. Maybe it’s just out of range.

[Tense music]


No. No. No, no, no. Not trina. No.

[Breathes sharply]

[Soft dramatic music]

I always knew cody bell couldn’t be trusted. I bet he’s done time behind bars before.

Hmm. Yeah, maybe he has. But not today. He’ll make bail.

Wait, what? Are you going to-

you bought his act? Are you nuts?

[Door clicks]

[Tense music]


Look at it this way, what you really want is a celebration.

That really is all you’re asking for.

Yeah, so my best advice is just rip off the band-aid, ok? Because you really can tell michael anything.

Brook lynn is right. Michael will understand.

Understand what?

[Soft dramatic music]


What we have is a theory with no real evidence to back it up. We can’t show that to the authorities.

So we have to find something.

Yes, but how? I mean, come on. We’re not gonna be able to infiltrate that compound. Venezuela is a very different country now. It’s tough to get into-

and more importantly, tough to get out of.

Not to worry. I know exactly who can help us.


Trina is important to spencer.

Yep, and victor would use trina as leverage against spencer.

In a heartbeat. But why would he have to do that? Spencer will do anything that victor tells him to do.

Ok, well, maybe he doesn’t have her then.

Then where is she?

I don’t know. I don’t know. But I do know that dante has the entire port charles police department searching for her. So at the very least, wherever she is, maybe she’s not alone.


Ok. You ready?

Yeah. Let’s just go over it one more time anyway.

Ok. I’m gonna cause a diversion with my uncle, and that’s gonna draw attention away from the deck.

Which will enable me to go to the communication office and radio for help.

That’s right.

And spencer-

oh my god, this-

this better-


it’s gonna be epic. The diversion is gonna be epic, ok? You don’t have to worry. Baby, I got plenty of practice causing a scene.

[Both chuckle] In case I don’t get another chance to tell you this, I, um-

I want you to know that you are the best thing that has ever happened-


[Dramatic music]


This is not the end for us. We got this.


I’ve been negotiating…

[Devices beeping] Maybe with god, fate, the universe. I don’t know, maybe with myself. But, uh, I’ve been making a lot of promises in my head, and one promise I can make you… my father will pay for this. I promise you that no matter what it takes, I’ll bring my father down.

[Tense music] But right now, I need you to wake up, darling.

[Somber music]

I just want you to wake up.

[Sobbing quietly]
