[ Both chuckle ]

[ Gasps ] Oh, my gosh. So… …what do you think? I think… …it’s perfect. It’s hard to believe that we had to leave port charles just to come all the way down to nyc to spend some quality time together. Not that I’m complaining. Neither am I. Stop right there, partner! Unless you’re lookin’ for trouble.

[ Water sprays ]

[ Gasps ]

[ Laughter ] Gotcha! Not for long! You can’t get me here!

[ Gasps ] Aah!

[ Laughter ]

[ Water sprays ] Hey, joss. What’s going…on?

[ Laughter ] You must have pulled some serious strings to get a visit at this hour. The warden owes me one. I hope you’ve come to give me good news about drew cain.

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Sighs ] I love you, carly. I love you, too. So much. I’m gonna get you out of pentonville. I have to. Hey. Dr. Montague. Thanks for coming in on such short notice. Well, not a problem at all. Anything I can do to assist. Yeah. We just need to get to the bottom of a few things. I’m happy to help. Great. Follow me right in here. I’ll take your statement.

[ Door closes ] New intake.

[ Police radio chatter ] Uh, I will be recording this, just so you know. Would you like some water? Oh, no, thank you. Go on, dante. Get him. Well, gladys, will you do it? Will you confess and testify against dr. Montague? Please, sasha. If this comes out, sonny will kill me, literally. Like dr. Montague was planning to kill me? But I-I-I didn’t know he was gonna do that. I never wanted to hurt you! No. No, no, no. No. You just wanted me to be locked up and drugged so you could steal my money. Sasha. No. That is not how it was at all. I got in a jam. Things got out of control. You’ve got to believe me. I would never, never agree to that! I love you! Then prove it! Confess and help me put away dr. Montague for good! My frequent heartburn had me taking antacid after antacid all day long but with prilosec otc just one pill a day blocks heartburn for a full 24 hours. For one and done heartburn relief, prilosec otc. One pill a day, 24 hours, zero heartburn. Dr. Z!We love your skincare videos. Thanks! My daughter has sensitive skin. Same. Try using all free clear as part of your family’s laundry routine. It tackles impurities without leaving irritating residue for a clean that’s gentle on skin. All free clear. The number one doctor recommended brand for sensitive skin. Okay. Okay. I’m gonna run and pick up the tickets, okay? What? Yeah, I just have an errand to run, and then I’m gonna check on a few of those surprises that I have planned. You’re gonna abandon me? No. No, not at all. I just thought that it might be nice for you to decompress a little bit after the flight. Okay. Yeah. That — that works for me. Okay. But hurry back. Yeah, I am. Of course. It’s not gonna take long. I’ll see you soon, okay? Okay.

[ Door closes ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Chuckles softly ] Hey, mom, it’s me. We just made it to nyc safe and sound. Tell curtis and marshall I said hey. And I’ll talk to you tomorrow. Okay? Bye. Love you. Mommy, we got you! You did! It’s like the O.K. Corral in here, huh?

[ Chuckles ] Here. Thank you. Um, girls, I think we’re gonna have dinner soon. Why don’t you two cowgirls go upstairs and wash up, hm? Girls: Okay. Come on, avery. We’ll ride our horsies upstairs.

[ Laughter ] So, uh… what brings you by? I just wanted to say good night to avery. Yeah. I know that your mom is at the hospital with drew. I just came from there. Oh, yeah. That’s why I’m here holding down the fort. Um, is there any news? Is drew awake? No, not yet, but he’s out of surgery, and the doctors seem very confident that everything went well. That’s so good to hear. Thank you. Yeah. Of course. We’re all worried. Drew doesn’t deserve this. I owe him so much for everything he did to bring trina home. She really means a lot to you, huh? She’s like a daughter. You know, you’ve really done a lot for trina, getting her that internship at the chuck. You’ve taught her pretty much everything she knows about the gallery and the art world. I think that she’s really lucky to have you in her life. I know that she really appreciates you. I appreciate her, too. Okay, well, I better go up and be sure those girls and their horsies aren’t getting into any mischief.

[ Laughs ] Isn’t it a risk, us meeting here? I mean, we’ve been so careful. Relax, mason. The cats are asleep. I’m not worried about the prisoners, cyrus. But the warden? The warden is busy with drew cain. Alright. So tell me what you’ve heard about my friend. Nothing. All austin could find out was that cain was in surgery and… it wasn’t looking good. There are those of us who become casualties in god’s grand scheme. But when you choose the side of the devil, you willingly stake your life on a losing hand.

[ Door opens ] Oh. I’m sorry, ms. Spencer. I didn’t know you were still here. Oh. I-I, um… I wanted to stay until he woke up, you know?

[ Monitor beeping ] He looks so vulnerable hooked up to all this. He’s been through a lot. We have to monitor him closely. After the trauma he experienced and the surgery, he’s likely to be out for the night. Let me know if you need anything. Oh. Um, the doctor said the surgery was a success. Yes. He’s very lucky. Could there be complications at this stage? Try not to worry. How is he? Really. I mean, how is he?

[ Weakly ] He’s doing pretty good.

[ Groans ] Better because

you’re here. Hey. Warden, you really didn’t need to come all this way just to visit drew. I would have been happy to report his condition. Not at all, jordan. This attack should have never happened. I pride myself on the security at pentonville, and this was a major fail. I had to make sure for myself that mr. Cain was okay. You’ve brought so many reforms to the prison. It’s impressive. But we can’t rest on any laurels. Something brutal like this means we have a lot more work to do. I’m eager to see if mr. Cain can shed any light. It’s certainly suspicious, though. The severity and duration of the attack suggest there might have been some coordination between prisoners and guards. Dr. Montague, thank you for coming in. We want to get to the bottom of this. As I’ve told your detective, I’m glad to assist and help recover ms. Gilmore. She’s at risk out on her own.

[ Beep ] This is dr. Damon montague’s statement on the assault by cody bell and the events that happened at ferncliff. Well, um, I found cody bell in one of my patients’ rooms, and he attacked me. Attacked you why? I was making my rounds, and I heard some animated voices coming from a room. When I opened up the door to check it out, cody bell went crazy and he jumped me. So why didn’t you call security before you entered the room? It was a room for one of my troubled patients. Sasha gilmore’S. Yes. Yes, she’s very vulnerable, and I was afraid for her life. I’ve been treating her for some time, and, frankly, I’m quite shocked with how much she’s declined since the stabbing episode. And you think cody bell is the one who attacked you? Yes, he jumped me, and we fought. But mr. Bell was crazed, and he knocked me out. When I came to, I was in the bathroom, tied up, and he had taken my clothes. When cody was arrested, he was wearing the clothes you say he stole from you. And in the pocket, we found these. Can you explain those? H-how — how can I prove it? I-I didn’t know what montague was planning to do! But you knew him from your card games. You got him to give me pills that messed with the antidepressants I was already taking. You and dr. Montague did that to make me look unstable so that you could keep the guardianship going. I was desperate. I am so sorry. Well, if you’re really sorry, then there’s only one choice. Help me put an end to dr. Montague. He has to be stopped. Okay. Okay. I will do whatever you want.

[ Sighs ] You will? I will go to the police, tell them everything dr. Montague did. Okay. Well, I have to wait here. But this is your last chance, gladys. I am trusting you. Of course. Of course. I won’t — I won’t let you down. I feel so terrible. Hey, hey. Make sure to not tell anyone that you saw me, okay? This has to come from you speaking from your own conscience. Okay?

[ Sighs, sniffles ] Hello. I have information about an escaped fugitive.

So, dr. Montague… what do you have to say about these pills? I have never seen those before in my life. But it makes sense. How so? Well, it appeared that sasha was getting drugs from inside ferncliff. Maybe cody was her dealer.

[ Sighing ] Alright. Well, uh, that definitely does help us clarify some things, dr. Montague. Thanks for your cooperation. We may need to speak to you again. I’m at your disposal. Okay. We’ll be in touch. Oh, no, no, no. H-hold on. Y-you’re letting him go?!

[ Grunts ]

[ Knock on door ] Gladys?

[ Knock on door ] Sasha gilmore? No. No. No. Please remain calm. We are only here to escort you back to ferncliff. No, no, no, no! I can’t go back there! Please. Please. You’re making a mistake. I cannot go back to ferncliff. Please. Please.

[ Gasps ] Gladys. Why? Why, gladys?! Why?! You’re awake. Oh, my god. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. No. I’m sorry. No. Come back. Get over here.

[ Laughs ] Welcome back, mr. Cain. How are you feeling? Uh…good. I mean…I’m here. Okay, but you’ve been through a rough surgery. You have to be very careful not to exert yourself too much.

[ Exhales heavily ] Yes, ma’am. I’ll let the doctor know you’re awake. If you need any help with pain management, just buzz me. Make sure he doesn’t overdo it? Oh. I will.

[ Monitor beeping ] Hey. I’m so glad you’re awake. It was so hard w-watching you lay here like this. I’m so sorry. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s not okay. You were only in pentonville because of me. Carly, come on. You’re not to blame. I’m fine. How can you say that? You were only attacked because of me. And sonny.

[ Beeping continues ] Warden garten: You think there could have been collusion between prisoners and my staff at pentonville? It’s certainly suspicious. Drew’s injuries indicate a lengthy fight. I’d like an investigation into who was on duty during the attack.

[ Elevator bell chimes ]

[ Cellphone ringing ] Ready to help me? Put that over there. Donna. Okay, sweetheart. I have to take this. Yeah. In. Nice job. Trina! What are you doing? Where’s spencer? He went to go pick up the tickets for the theater. But we’re here! Look at this place!

Oh, my god. It’s amazing.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Wait. Tell me everything. How was the flight? I’m assuming you flew first-class.

Joss. Oh, come on. Enjoy it.

[ Sighs ] Okay. It was amazing. Spencer has this special key, which meant that we get to board first.

And they treated us

like royalty. They gave us these heated nuts, and then they gave us little mints and fresh-baked cookies when we landed. Was there a driver waiting for you? With the sign — “cassadine.” And the driver took us directly to the car, and we didn’t have to wait for the luggage.


Say what you want

about spencer, but that guy’s got game. Yeah, he really does.

So…? So, what? So, are you excited? I mean, this is huge! You and spencer haven’t really been able to explore your relationship since greenland. I mean, tonight’s the night. Josslyn!

Trina, it’s your first time with spencer. Okay? How are you feeling? I mean, I know that you’ve thought about it. You still feel ready? Absolutely.

[ Sighs ] I’ve been ready for a while now, and we’re never alone. Well, you’re alone now. Yeah, we are. I feel really good about spencer. We’re in a really great place right now. I’m so happy for you!

Okay. Go. Go. Get ready for your night.

But call me later

with every detail.

Maybe not all

of the details. Just know that I’m here for you, okay, no matter what.

Okay. Oh, is that ava? Is she there with you? Yes, she — she came by to say hi to avery. Um, listen. Have a great night. You know it. Tell ava I said hey. Okay. I will. Love you. Love you more.

[ Breathes deeply ]

[ Door opens ] Okay! We are all…set. I picked up the tickets, and everything else is running on schedule. “Everything else”? Mm-hmm. What else do you have in store for us? Oh, you’ll see.

Well, don’t keep me in suspense. I could tell you, but then it would ruin the surprise, so… mm. Okay. Well, don’t ruin the surprise. No, I’m not going to. That would take all of the fun out of this. But I’ll tell you what. We are in the capital of the western world, so what would you like to do? What would I like to do?

[ Sighs ] Everything! Uh, I want to see soho. There’s a couple of galleries that we deal with there. Then I want to go shopping, I want to go eat, and then I really want to see the big four. Oh, the big four? Yeah. Moma, guggenheim, whitney, and the met.

[ Sighs ] I am so glad that you said that. What? Why do you have that smile? I thought we weren’t ruining surprises. You didn’t say it had something to do with a museum. Okay, okay. I’ll tell you.

[ Both chuckle ]

[ Knock on door ] Oh. Saved by the bell.

[ Chuckles ] Cody! Cody! Get off! This isn’t helping! Cody! Get off! Let go of him! Get off me! Okay. Okay. Sorry. Sorry about this. Alright? Dante, you can’t let him walk! Hey! Take him to his cell. -Mac! Mac! -Man, no, we can’t — sasha? What are you doing? You have to be careful. Carly. You are not to blame, okay? It was — it was my choice to help sonny. It’s not your responsibility to fight sonny’s battles. It’s not just sonny’s battles. It’s other injustices, too. But you don’t have to fix everyone’s problems. Look at you. You know that I can’t stand by and I can’t watch all that stuff happen. The — the drug problem itself is heartbreaking enough, okay? If I can help root out the corruption, I am going… to do it every time.

[ Door opens ] Drew. You’re awake. Drew: Mm. You had us so worried. Aw. Thank you, jordan. How you feeling? I’m sore, but I-I’ll be okay. Warden, I’m kind of surprised to see you here. Warden? How the hell could you let this happen to drew? What kind of prison are you running?! I sent you with a message to my nephew’s ex-wife, mason. It’s been more than a handful of days. So, what was the dear lady’s response? Um, well, she’s not the one that we have to worry about. Betty’s the problem. What are these?! Um, t-those are chopsticks. You eat with them. Chopsticks!

[ Laughs ] Thank you for getting the delivery. Oh. Yeah. Of course. So, h-how was trina? Oh, I mean, she’s great. She says hi, by the way. Her and spencer made it to new york. Mm. That’s great. I hope she has the time of her life. I’m sure she will. Well, joss, thank you for being here with avery. I know things haven’t been easy. I-I’ll get out of your hair. Ava, we have way too much food for three people. Would you like to stay for dinner? Well, I would like that very much. Thank you. Okay, cowgirls! I think we need some more chopsticks ’cause I’m staying for dinner! Hooray! Yay!

[ Cork pops ] Champagne? Yes, please. There you are. And we’re done.Hm, what about these? Looks right.

You’re supposed to be protecting the inmates! Carly. Warden garten’s on the same page as us about getting justice for drew. She’s here to help us brainstorm on how we can reopen the case and maybe get it before another judge. Sorry. I — I am really upset about all this. I understand perfectly. And, mr. Cain, I owe you a deep apology. The warden wants to drew out of pentonville just as much as we do. I’m just as upset as you are, miss spencer. Drew ending up in a hospital bed was never the outcome I wanted for him. I feel terrible. And I wanted to see if you could shed any light on the situation. The only important thing is to get drew out of pentonville. I couldn’t agree more. Listen. I’m — I’m sorry, boss. I really thought we could trust betty. She may have gotten too cocky and let down her guard and showed corinthos her cards. Is that what you think happened? Well, it’s possible she turned on us. You know, sonny’s a very powerful figure. Um, and persuasive. So she may have decided to strike a deal with him. Sasha! What happened?! Gladys! What did you do to her?! Dante, you better see to getting miss gilmore back to ferncliff. No! No! I can’t go back there! Please. Mac. Mac. Hold on. Dante, don’t do it. Make sure nothing happens. They’re expecting her. You can’t take her back there! Dante, please. Ferncliff? Sasha, it’s okay. It’s just for a little bit just so we can sort this out. No! No! Please, dante! Sasha. Sasha. It’ll be okay. I will get you out of there somehow! Um, listen. Would you mind waiting? Um, I need to take cody back to processing, and then I’ll be back to follow up with you. Thank you for calling and letting us know sasha’s whereabouts. I was just trying to help my poor daughter-in-law. Mac, do not trust her. She’s behind all of this. Please. Please. Cody, let’s go. Come on. -Mac, I’m telling you. -Let’s go! You have to look more into what gladys is doing! Mac: Go! Oh, my gosh. Look at all of this. Is that really caviar?

[ Chuckles ] I know it’s a little bit cheesy, but I just couldn’t resist. I figured, why not go all-out? Well, let’s go.

[ Chuckles ] I’m really happy that you were able to come along this weekend. I know you’re really busy right now, what with school starting and finishing that paper. Which I finished, no thanks to you. Well, I can’t help wanting to spend all of my free time with you. And I’m really glad that ava was able to give you some time off from your duties at the gallery. Yeah. Of course. I mean, it’s no trip to turks and caicos like you wanted during hurricane season, when probably we would have been stranded on some island for some weeks before we got rescued. So you discovered my master plan — being marooned, just the two of us, on an island. Mm. Well, when you put it like that, it does kind of sound nice. Just the two of us. I am sorry that it’s taken us so long for us to have some alone time with each other. It’s okay. No, it’s not. I just had to be sure that esme wasn’t going to run away with my little brother. But I’m glad that she turned out to be dependable. Did we come all this way just to talk about esme?

[ Chuckles ] No. No, of course we didn’T.

We do have a dinner reservation to get to. Hm. Yeah. Okay, well, let’s get to it.

[ Chuckles ] We don’t have to go so fast. We haven’t even done a proper toast yet. Then let’s do a toast. To the woman I love. To us. To us. Okay. Okay.

[ Clears throat ] Dinner. A quick shower.

[ Door closes ] Rest assured diane and I are exploring all legal loopholes and case precedents. We’re doing everything we can. Thank you, jordan. I know you’re really going above and beyond. No, drew. We’re just doing what has to be done. You shouldn’t be in pentonville, and we’re gonna solve this problem and get you out. -Thank you. -We’re in this together. Warden, I’m sorry that I can’t tell you anything helpful about the fight. The attack! You were attacked! Don’t worry about that, drew. You just focus on your healing. And I’ll see you soon. Or hopefully not. Okay. Wait a second. Isn’t there something we can do to make sure drew doesn’t go back to pentonville? Some kind of medical exemption? We’re looking into that. Don’t worry, miss spencer. We will do everything we can to make sure nothing like this happens again. You have my word. Thank you. Carly: Okay. That’s good. You know? I mean, thank god we’re not in this alone. Hopefully diane and jordan — they can come up with some kind of a miracle, right? Hey. What? Come sit with me. Please? Okay. We’re alone. Together. No talking about prison or trials or any of that. Just — just…

[ Groans ] Just the two of us. God. I mean, I was so worried, dex. Why was drew a target for such a brutal beating in the first place? I mean, thank god he’s awake.

[ Clears throat ] I — um, I got to go. I’ll call you in a little. The girls are all washed up, ready for bed. Okay. The playroom is still a bit of a mess, though. Oh, well. That’s nothing new. And they’re waiting for the bedtime story that you promised. Okay. So is there any — any word about drew? Yes. My mom called. He’s awake. Well, that’s a relief. Drew shouldn’t have gone to prison in the first place. I mean, who the hell tipped off the sec? They could have gotten him killed. You okay, gladys? How can I be? Thanks to you, my daughter-in-law has completely lost touch with reality! Yes, it is really sad. But she’s gonna be taken care of in ferncliff. I’m gonna see to it personally. No! No, dante, please. Sasha. We’re gonna get you out of here, okay? I promise you that. No. Please. I-I don’t belong here. Okay? I-I-I shouldn’t be — no, no, no! Orderly: This is for your own good. Come on. Is that really necessary? Hey, it’s part of the intake order. Please, please, dante. Do something. Look. It’s best that you leave. Sasha, we’re gonna get you out. We’re gonna get you out. Okay? I promise you that!

[ Exhales heavily ] Wow. Trina. Oh, my goodness. You look amazing. You don’t look so bad yourself, mr. Cassadine.

[ Chuckling ] No, no, no. This is one battle you’re not gonna win. Trina, you are breathtaking. Can I help you with your necklace? Necklace? Oh, my gosh. Spencer. It’s beautiful. May I? I wanted you to have something permanent. That way, you would always be able to remember our weekend together. Ohh. Perfect. Okay. Dinner awaits. Let’s go to dinner. You think it’s possible that betty was unable to fool corinthos and instead chose to join forces? It’s possible. No, it’s not possible. And you’re an idiot for thinking that. It was an easy job. Betty had no reason to betray me. Sonny accepted her too quickly. Which means ava’s the one who did it. And for that sin, she’ll have to face divine retribution. Oh. But what about cassadine? He — he was very clear about not hurting her. I don’t care what my nephew said. He’s not the one running the show. I am! Get it done!

[ Door slams ] I’m glad to hear that drew’s awake. Well, I’m glad that you came tonight. I think it made things much more normal for the girls. You know, joss, I couldn’t help but hear that you were on your phone with dex. H-how is it having a boyfriend working for sonny? Why do you ask? You may not remember, but I am the daughter of a man whose business dealings weren’t always… “inside” the law. We probably have more in common than you think. And if you really want to know why I want to know, it’s because you’re trina’s best friend. And what affects her matters to me. And I want to be sure that you’re taking care of yourself, that you’ve got your eyes open wide. Because you will need crystal clarity to navigate a relationship with someone in the business. Well, the girls were hoping for “hoppity moppity kuddly kangaroo.” Okay. Take care, joss. You too.

[ Door opens and closes ] Oh, hey, nina. It’s me. I just found out that — that drew woke up. So you won’t have his death on your conscience. I hope if anything good comes out of all of this, it’s that we can finally get justice for drew and push for a retrial. Drew doesn’t belong in pentonville. I’ll help in any way I can to ensure an early release. Thank you, jordan. Mac, you can’t let sasha stay at ferncliff. Dr. Montague — dr. Montague isn’t gonna do anything to sasha. She is not safe there. It’s only for a little while. We’ll get sasha out but going through the proper channels. Mac. Don’t worry. We’re doing everything we can. Let’s go.

[ Sobbing ] Cody…
