THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
And oh. Hey, mac. Hi. Is it just you? Yeah. Uh, I mean, no. Felicia’s joining me. Are you sure?
[ Chuckles ] I’m sorry. Don’t mind me. Congratulations, by the way, on taking over kelly’S. Oh, thanks. Felicia told me that bobbie sold it to you for a dollar. Yeah, my mom’s great idea, and I couldn’t be more grateful. You know, it gives me something to concentrate on. Yeah, things must be chaotic after sonny’s arrest. Yeah, we were pretty shocked. I mean, they dragged sonny out of the metro court in handcuffs in front of michael and willow and wiley. Well, that must’ve been upsetting for wiley to watch the fbi arrest his grandfather. -Yeah. You’d think — -mac, I’m so sorry. Hello, carly. -Hi, felicia. You know what? I’ll grab you a menu. Oh, no, don’t bother. I’ll share mac’S. Okay. [ Chuckles ] Felicia. I know. I’m late. I dropped all this stuff that I downloaded for my online course as I was leaving the house, and now it’s all out of order. Felicia. There are two online units I have to complete to get my certification before I can do my practical training for the patient advocacy program.
[ Sighs ] Are you mad at me because I’m late or because I’m going to be volunteering? No, no, none of that. I think it’s great, and I think it’s great for you. Well, then, what’s got you all upset? Cody. He’s been locked up.
[ Sighs ] I can’t believe summer’s already over. I know. Time flies. I don’t even know how I’m going to fit all that stuff in that dorm room again this year. Ladies, hello. Sorry I’m late. I know. I’m late. I’m late. Gosh, spencer cassadine late again? What is the world coming to? Yeah, I get it. It’s kind of a pattern with me lately, but ace was really upset, so… oh, is everything okay with him? Yeah, everything’s fine now, but he was, like, really, really fussy before, and we were trying everything to get him to calm down, and nothing was working, so we put him in, like, this lavender bath. I don’t know. It was esme’s idea. It worked. It worked. Something about the smell just calmed him right down. Hmm. Hmm. Well, thank god esme was there. So have you heard anything about uncle sonny? Or what about dex? I’m sure he was arrested, too, right? Spencer. What? What did I say? Just the usual — something stupid. And by the way, no, dex was not arrested, I don’t want to talk about sonny, and I especially don’t want to talk about esme.
[ Knock on door ] I finished my piece on the weekend section. Blue pen, red pen, uploaded to the main server, and I’m going to head out now, unless you need me. No, I’m good. Thanks. Okay. Uh, if anything changes, just text me. I can always come right back. It appears that you don’t really want to leave.
[ Chuckles ] You don’t have plans tonight? Actually, i do have plans. Something I’ve put off way too long. Bucket list? No, just the opposite. Something I’ve been dreading. I’m going to tell chase about my illness. Good. With finn? No, I — I need to do this by myself. It’ll be fine. Good luck. Thank you. Chances are, I’m going to need it. This will crush him. Brook lynn. Hey. Hey, I’m behind the curve. I just finished a workout. And I would kiss you, but I’m a little sweaty. Oh, you’re not getting off that easy. I don’t mind. Then, come in.
[ Chuckles ] Okay. [ Grunts ] Is the rest of your stuff in the car? I’ll grab a shirt, and I can grab it. Oh, no need. This is all I brought. Wait, I thought you were moving in, not just spending the night. I am. This is all I need. It’s about time. What are we doing here? It’s too dangerous to be meeting out in the open like this. Hey, didn’t you get my message? Yeah, I did, but I didn’t have a chance to call you back. What did you want to talk to me about? Uh, I was talking to my mom, and she mentioned that cody had taken off a few days, and I was surprised to hear that. And then she said she heard that information from you, which I was even more surprised to hear. I did tell your mom that. Ah. So you want to tell me where cody is? Well
[Clears throat] Cody was going to be away for a few days, and he didn’t want your mom to worry or fire him… right. …So he wanted me to let her know to make alternate plans… hm. …So I did. Okay. But you’re not answering my question. So where’s — where’s cody now? Now? Yeah. Ferncliff. Sasha. Sasha. Sasha, hey. Can you hear me? Sasha. Sasha, hey, it’s cody. I’m here. Sasha, I’m going to need you to wake up. Sasha, hey, you got to wake up. Damn. What did they give you? Sasha gilmore. She was supposed to be released today. Okay, okay, then let me talk to her doctor. No, I’m not a reporter. God. Hey, carly. Ugh, what do you want, nina?
[ Clears throat ] I want to talk to you about sonny. I’m concerned. Okay. About what? Well, he’s in custody. He’s facing prison time. I want to do whatever I can to help. And alexis said the whole family could be in danger, including the children. We all could be targeted for revenge. It’s definitely a possibility. Well, wait. What — what are you going to do about it? What am i going to do about it? What are you going to do about it?
Never seen you pack so light before. Well, there’s a first time for everything. I was very efficient. Brook lynn, when I asked you to move in, I wanted you, the woman I love. That’s exactly who you got. Except it kind of seems like you’re trying to reinvent or restrict yourself to please me. Chase, let’s be clear, okay? I appreciate that you accept me exactly who I am, but guess what. I am adaptable, and I can use this as a chance to see myself in a whole new light. To become a zen master of order. Yeah, fat chance of that happening. Seriously, chase, part of being in a relationship, especially when you’re living together, is accommodating one another. I don’t have to move in here with every single one of my things. I’m still going to spend time at the mansion. I want to go see leo and olivia and check in on willow and my dad, whoever he is at the moment. Whoa, no. Okay, hold on. I’m worried about uncle sonny, too, but I will shut up, and I won’t bring up esme anymore. Okay? Good. Okay, great. I guess we’ll… I’ll go for a swim.
[ Sighs ] I’m sorry. Sometimes spencer can be a jerk, but he’s my jerk. Why doesn’t it bother you more that he’s spending all of this time with esme? Who said it doesn’t? As I said, do not underestimate chase’s ability to handle your diagnosis. And you can’t shield your children from life. I know. You’re right. I guess I’ve just gotten caught up in the protecting-chase mode since he was a little boy. Finn never needed it. He was like an ancient tree — tough, sturdy. Never cried, always inscrutable, kept everything inside. Hamilton finn, a mystery wrapped in an enigma.
[ Chuckles ] Chase, on the other hand, pure id. You always knew exactly what he was feeling just by looking at him. Always full of wonder and laughing and singing his heart right there on his sleeve. Well, great. Then you’ll know exactly how he feels. And then you’ll look out for him, he’ll look out for you — piece of cake. As usual, you cut right to the heart of the matter. I don’t know. I’ve just always been amazed at how my two sons could be so completely different. Right? I mean, two unique people raised under the same circumstances. My children, kristina and molly, couldn’t be more different.
[ Knock on door ] Hello, you two. Talking about me?
[ Sighs ] Cody’s in ferncliff? Yes. Oh, my god. I mean, what the hell is wrong with him? I told you he was going to do this, right? That he was acting all crazy so that he could set the stage to get put it in ferncliff to be close to sasha, but you obviously knew this because you’re the one who gave the message to my mother, right? Yes. I — [ Clears throat ] I knew about it, and I, um… I helped him get committed. You’re the new mrs. Corinthos. At least, you’re going to be. I don’t understand how any of this is my responsibility. Without jason here to step in for sonny, there could be a power vacuum here in port charles. I know. I still don’t understand what this has to do with me. You stepped in before. You held everything together. You kept the peace in port charles last time that sonny was gone. Oh, you mean when we all thought sonny was dead, but you knew he was alive, and you didn’t tell his family? That time? You to ld me how erratic cody wasat the pcpd the other day. Did he violate gladys’ restraining order? No, nothing like that. Cody wasn’t arrested. He was committed. Committed? Does this have something to do with how he was at the stables? I had a feeling something was going on, so I checked up on him. Cody’s been admitted to ferncliff. That’s where sasha is. You worry too much, gladys. It’ll give you crow’s feet. There is no problem with us being seen together. I’m sasha’s doctor, and you’re her concerned mother-in-law. What the hell does that mean? I am concerned. And I share that concern. Like hell you do. Why don’t you just drop the sweet-doctor act? All you care about is bleeding me dry to line your pockets. Sasha’s well-being is my sole focus. Okay, so when do I get her out? I wired the money to the offshore account, like you said. And I got the notification earlier. Okay, so let’s go pick sasha up, and I’ll bring her home. Not so fast. Cody: [ Sighs ] Oh, please wake up, sasha. Hey. Oh, thank god. Hey, sasha. Hey, it’s me — cody. You remember me? No. No. No, please. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Please don’t hurt me! Please! Hey, no. Hey, it’s me. It’s cody.
Do you think it doesn’t bother me that spencer and i barely ever get to see each other? Of course it does. I thought we’d be spending the whole summer together, but it’s already over, and now I have to go back to school, and the gallery’s already getting busy, and whenever I do see spencer, we spend half the time catching up. He’s talking to me about ace and, of course, esme, and then spencer and I have never even, like — you know, we just… you know what I mean. We barely ever get any alone time. That must be so hard. And I’m not complaining. Especially with everything my mom is going through with curtis, and I just want to be strong for her. Plus, my dad, taggert… …he’s still hurting. And I don’t want us to lose our connection ’cause I love him so much. I know, I know. But you have so much on your plate right now. Yeah. And I try to remind myself that it’s not going to be like this forever. And even though sometimes spencer messes up, he’s mine, not esme’S… mm-hmm. …So I can’t let her get under my skin like that. Well, that was beautiful.
[ Chuckles ] Are you taking philosophy this semester?
[ Laughs ] Always good to see you, kristina. And you. We’ll talk later. Yes. And good luck. He’s a great writer. So smart of you to add him to the editorial board. He adds a lot to the table. Yeah. So are you free for a bite? My treat. Yes, I’m starving. Great. Alright, what’s on the agenda? My dad. How much trouble do you think he’s in? Carly. Carly, wait. I’M… I’m new to this. And we have to figure out what’s best for the family. You have experience. I’m asking you to help me. Please. Brick’s been in touch. Everything’s under control. And everything is stable in the business right now. And the pact with the families is strong, especially since sonny got rid of joey novak, so I don’t think anyone’s going to make a move just because sonny’s been detained. You still seem pretty informed with sonny’s dealings. You should be grateful for that. It’s not glamorous carrying around this kind of burden, and it’s not a competition. We do have to work together to keep the family safe. Okay. I get it. I hope so. Brick will be in touch, and he’ll go over everything with you but you have to stay calm. For sonny’s sake. It sends a bad message when his inner circle is running around upset. Okay? Okay. I’m more concerned with who gave credible information to the feds. That means someone broke rank and they turned state’s evidence against sonny. Wow. Mac, do you really think cody lost it?
[ Sighs ] I don’t know what to think. You know, cody’s situation reminds me exactly of what I went through years ago. Dominique. It’s just so eerie. Cody is convinced that sasha is in danger and he has to rescue her from ferncliff. Yeah, just like what you went through when leopold taub had dominique stashed away at shadybrook. Yeah, and he’s willing to do anything to get himself past the restraining order and into sasha’s orbit. Gladys: What? Are you trying to double-cross me? Of course not, gladys. We’re friends.
[ Chuckles ] But we both need to be smart about this. Sasha needs to be weaned off the medications that you asked me to administer — I never asked you to drug sasha, and I want her out now. If sasha recovers too quickly, people will ask questions, and sasha herself may become suspicious and ask for a toxicology report. And that’s not going to look good for either of us. It’ll take at least 24 hours for it to clear her system. So you’re saying she can’t be released for 24 hours? No, I’m saying the weekend at the earliest. Absolutely not. Come on, now, gladys. We both know you’re not holding a royal flush here. It’s time to fold your hand and start playing by my rules. There’s too much at stake if we don’t move forward with caution. Sam, why would you help cody violate a restraining order? I mean, you helped him break into a secure mental hospital… I had to. …And disturb a woman who’s in recovery? No, dante. It was to help her. Cody thinks that sasha is in serious danger, and I believe him. And the only way around gladys and the restraining order was to get him committed as a patient in ferncliff. Gladys is a pain, for sure, but she’s not the one who stabbed cody. Sasha is. What happens if you get him in ferncliff and then she goes off on him again? Hey, hey, hey, sasha, sasha, I promise, I promise. I’m not here to hurt you. It’s the opposite. I’m here to help you. No. No, no, no. That — that — that doesn’t make sense. Nothing makes sense. Cyrus — cyrus was coming after me, and I had to defend myself. But then — then — then everyone… everyone said that it was you, that I stabbed you, and I don’t know what happened. I don’t know what’s real! Hey, hey, hey. You don’t have to think about that right now, okay? Are you real? Are you really here? I’m very real, sasha. I — I promise. Here. Here. See for yourself, okay? Just take my hand. I promise I won’t grab you. So will you please take my hand?
[ Exhales sharply ] Dad, what a pleasant surprise. Come in. I’m glad to find you home, son. Since you got back on the force, I never know your schedule. Yeah, it’s been a little hectic, but, hey, anytime you want to hang out, just shoot me a text. I appreciate how you always make time for your old man, son. “Old man”? Please, you could outrun all of us. Look, I know finn teases you about being a bookworm, but I remember those camping trips. No, I can’t wait for you to teach one of my kids the cross hitch. Chase, the reason I stopped by — babe, what do you think of these new sheets that I brought for — oh, gregory, hi. I didn’t realize you were here.
[ Sighs ] I’m not going to lie to you. Your father is in trouble. The fbi would not have detained him if they didn’t have compelling evidence against him. Mom, they swarmed in there like he was el chapo. I can’t do anything this time. Diane is on it. She’ll do everything she can. In the meantime, we’re just going to hope and pray that it’s not as bad as I think it might be. Molly. Molly. I was just going. Oh, no. Get back here. Get back here. I know I said I wouldn’t micromanage this, but I am really tired of it. Now, you got into a fight. Get over it. Because you are sisters. Mom, this isn’t the time. This is the perfect time, because life is too short for you two to be at each other’s throats. Now kiss and make up. You both have way too many other things going on. If I were you, I’d be more concerned about what happens when sonny is released and he finds out who went to the feds because it’s not going to be pretty. What do you mean? Sonny values loyalty more than anything else, and if someone out there crossed him, he’s going to find out who it is, and he’s going to make them pay. Just stay under the radar, and take care of yourself. Hopefully, sonny will be out soon. Cody already tried to break in to see sasha once. And that just got him a restraining order, which if he violates… I’m just worried cody’s bitten off more than he can chew. He must think he has no other choice. Whatever the reason, what he’s doing is extreme. If anything bad happened to him, I’d never forgive myself. Mac, what are you thinking? I’m going to go and see him. Oh, no. You’re not. This wasn’t the deal, montague. I kept my end of the bargain. You have your money. And I appreciate it. We’re both betting on the same suit here, gladys. Stay steady. Sasha will go through her diva detox by the weekend, the tabloids will have their stories, you can retain your cash cow, and everything will be hunky-dory. Cody’s convinced that sasha didn’t mean to stab him. Right, yeah, she had a breakdown. No, she’s being drugged.
[ Sighs ] He’s looking for an explanation. I mean, this guy’s trying to find some kind of tangible thing that he can latch on to that he can save her from. So he’d rather imagine that gladys is pumping sasha so full of drugs instead of face the truth that she had a serious mental breakdown because then he can’t save her from that. Dante, I would’ve said the same thing a few weeks ago, that — that he would be doing more harm than good. That’s my point. But then cody asked me to stop for a second and just consider if he was right, how I would feel if I was in sasha’s position. And I did that. I thought about it. I thought, “what if it were me or one of my sisters stuck in ferncliff?” I would pray that — that — that there was someone out there that would come in and get me, and admit it, dante. You would be that person. Cody was willing to fight for sasha. I had to help him. Sasha, hey, hey. It’s not your fault, okay? You can’t think clearly because someone’s been drugging you. No. No, that’s what they say. They say that I’m using again, but I’m not. I wouldn’T. Not after what I went through with brando. I got clean, okay? I thought that everything was okay, but then it wasn’T. The nurses keep asking me where I got the drugs, but I didn’t want them. The doctor, he — he made me. Hey, hey, hey, hey. Don’t worry about the doctor, okay? He’s not here right now. I am, and I’m on your side. Please trust me. Will y ou please take my handso I can prove it?
Well, hello, hello. Who is this? Good lookin’.
[ Chuckles ] Oh, you like to carry people in the pool, huh? I like to carry you in the pool, yeah. And ace. I saw you two swimming together. Yes, he’s a very good swimmer. I think he might go to the olympics one day. Because he couldn’t just do it for fun. No, if he’s going to do it, he’s going to be a champion. Of course.
[ Chuckles ] Hi. Why is your phone off? I haven’t heard from you in a minute. Um, anyway, just calling to say I love you and I miss you. I’ll see you soon? Hello there, sir. It’s good to see you.
[ Chuckling ] Same here.
[ Chuckles ] Sheets, huh? Yeah. Brook lynn is moving in. Well, partially. Well, fully. Just with less parts. Just with everything I need. Congratulations. That’s wonderful news. Let me buy you dinner to celebrate — for the two of you, I mean. Oh. No way. You pay, you stay. Alright, if you’re sure. You know what sounds yummy? Gino’S. Yes. Yes. Please sit. So, uh, what made you decide to take the next step? Well, chase was being chivalrous. Was not. I’m having a little conflict with my grandmother. Why am I not surprised?
[ Chuckles ] I actually agree with you, mom, but, unfortunately, molly’s made it perfectly clear how she feels about me and that she wants no further contact. -Kristina, don’t — -oh, that’s a lie. What? It is not. You know full well what this is really about. You’re just choosing to play the victim. Molly, that is not true, and I think I know a little bit more about being a victim. Strangely, this feels so much worse because you are intentionally cutting me out of your life. For what, molly? Because I take up too much attention, too much space, too much air? All of the above. Mom, I’m — I’m sorry. I-I can’t do this. I’ll call you later.
[ Scoffs ] She’s ridiculous. Can you believe that? I can’t believe any of this. Felicia, there’s no harm in me going to ferncliff. Mac, please leave it alone. You are the acting police commissioner. So? Cody made a public spectacle when he accused gladys of exploiting sasha. You said yourself that you almost arrested him for harassment. Cody has no proof of anything. Sasha stabbed him. Cody swears there was something else going on. Maxie was there. She was on record as a witness saying that sasha suddenly went crazy. You can’t get involved, mac. You can’t go there. Listen to me, doctor.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
[ Sighs ] Nina. Gladys, what is going on? I am waiting for word on sasha. When can we go get her? Soon. I called ferncliff. They won’t give me any information. Everything’s on track.
What does that mean? I’m going to have to call you back. No, you are not calling me back. I want information, and I want it now. I’m at kelly’S. I will wait for you here. I’ll be right over. That’s your benefactor. You better hope she doesn’t blow a fuse about your timetable. That’s your job, gladys, to make sure she doesn’T. We’ll be in touch.
[ Cellphone rings ] You have excellent timing. I was just about to call you. I need something so good it’ll make you forget you ever met someone. As soon as possible.
Sam, I think I know you well enough to be able to say that, when you make a decision and you think it’s for the right thing, there is no stopping you. This is the right thing. Yeah, but you lied, and then you pretended that cody was sick to get him into the mental hospital. But it was our only option. “Our only option”? Who? You and cody? I mean, what am I?
[ Chuckles ] I mean, I’m — I’m — you… you’re the woman I love, the woman I share my life with. Yeah, I am. I mean, you just — you’re keeping things from me. And I know you’re going to tell me that it’s because you want to protect me. Dante, your father is in fbi custody. That’s what you should be focusing on. I didn’t want to add on to that. I know, but I never gave you a reason to keep me on the outside. Okay. Okay, maybe not. But would you really want me compromising your integrity as a cop? Cody believes a woman’s sanity is at stake, and you’re worried about my standing as police commissioner? Mac — I don’t care about the optics if cody is right. Mac, that’s not — if only someone was there to help me years ago with dominique. Mac, you misunderstand. I don’t care about any of it. I just don’t want you to ruin it for cody. Listen, I need to talk to sasha gilmore’s doctor right now. What is his name? If you won’t even tell me the doctor’s name, I promise you I will be there tomorrow with the police. You will do no such thing.
[ Scoffs ] Hello? Hello? See? I’m real. I’d probably be more convincing if I was wearing my own clothes, but, you know, they made me put on these — I don’t even know what they’re called. What are they? Like, pajamas?
[ Chuckles ] We can’t stay here, though. We have to go. Will you come with me?
Hey, joss, I’m sorry for what I said about dex. I’m just worried about sonny, and I know we both love him. Thank you. Okay, joss, I’ll talk to you later. Okay.
[ Cellphone chimes ] You know, I would give my right arm to have my sister back. And the two of you are busy arguing over semantics. Whose — whose position is superior? Who’s more aggrieved? It breaks my heart. I am not going to micromanage this. You’re both adults. But I am begging you, think about what’s at stake. I think I know a little bit more about being a victim. Strangely, this feels so much worse.
[ Sniffles, crying ] I don’t have a law degree, and I obviously wasn’t going to ask my mother, but I’m guessing that getting someone checked into a mental facility so they can see another patient is probably frowned upon, if not highly illegal. Sam. No, dante, stop. There was no way you could be involved. I was not going to put you in a position where you either had to try and stop us or look the other way. Sam… I trust your judgment. A hell of a lot more than I trust cody’S. But for the record, I just, uh… I don’t want to be kept in the dark. Noted. And if you think this is the right thing to do, then I’m backing you 100%. Thank you. Yeah. If cody is right and sasha is in danger at ferncliff, we can’t interfere with his plan. What if cody’s in over his head? I-I know that he’s hotheaded, but he is smart, and he’s capable. Look how far he’s managed to get already. I think we need to trust that he knows what he’s doing. You’re, like, impressed with this little adventure, aren’t you? It’s like one of your old capers. Mac, what is the worst thing that could happen to cody if he gets exposed at ferncliff? What the hell, gladys?!
[ Sighs ] Nina, there is no need to threaten some overworked nurse at ferncliff with the police. Well, then you — you stop. You need to tell me what is going on right now. Now, I know the money was transferred. So what is the holdup on sasha being released? There’s — there’s no holdup.
[ Chuckles ] The doctor promised she’ll be out tomorrow. Well, why tomorrow? Why can’t it be tonight? You’re driving me crazy. Listen, I want her home, and I want her home now.
[ Indistinct conversation ] We need to go? Go — go where? Away. We have to leave ferncliff. I mean, I’ve been here for less than 36 hours, and that is more than enough. You — you’ve… you’ve been here way too long, okay? You do want to leave, don’t you? Yes. Yes, more than anything, but they said that I couldn’T. We can’t just walk out. Yep, yep, yep. That’s no problem. I’m very creative. But you’re going to have to trust me. That okay? You trust me? Alright.
[ Door opens ] Let’s see what we have here.
On the next “General Hospital” —
