 trina: Thank you. Here you go. Sir. Appreciate it. Enjoy. Thank you. Oh, my god. That was amazing! The sets, the costumes, the music. I felt like I was actually at the moulin rouge! Didn’t you love it?! I did, though I did have a little bit of difficulty paying attention because I had a very pretty girl sitting next to me who I kept stealing glances at. Well, I’m definitely not as exciting as the can-can. Oh, I would disagree. To me, you are. I’m not sure toulouse-lautrec would agree. Well, it made me happy to see you so happy. Couldn’t take my eyes off you. Well, how can I be anything but happy? I’m in an incredible city with the most incredible guy. Who’s incredibly hungry. What do you think?

[ Laughs ] I’m starving. Hello, handsome. Ah. The door? I didn’t mean to wake you. No apologies necessary. I love waking up to you.

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Grunting ]

[ Grunting ] Bad dream? Unfortunately, it’s not a dream. It’s, uh — it’s my reality. -Mom? -Hey. What are you doing here at this hour? I need your help. I saw willow at G.H. She’s — she’s with drew. Yeah, she insisted on checking on him, so I stayed with the kids. H-how is drew doing? He made it through surgery. He’s lucky to be alive. They almost beat him to death. He shouldn’t even be in pentonville. I have no idea what the hell that judge was thinking. I do. Judge kim used drew to advance his career, and I need you to help me prove it. Nurse baldwin, where have you been all night? The first time I’m seeing you. It’s been so busy. I’ve been assisting in surgery for the past three hours. What about you? Why are you here so late? Well, I couldn’t leave without saying hi to you.

[ Rain falling ] You’re all wet, madam! Nothing gets past you, giles. Why is it only raining on this godforsaken island?! You know, not a single drop anywhere else! Spoon island is a microclimate. Oh. Well, thank you for the science lesson. Well, I’m not meant to be dry today, obviously, so in keeping with the wet theme, I’m gonna go and take a long, hot bath. No, you won’t, madam. Just stop it with the “madam,” giles, and tell me, why can’t I take a bath? I’m sorry, but the hot water heater isn’t working due to intermittent power outages on the island from the storm. Oh. Right. The microclimate, huh? Precisely. Well, please tell me that the vodka and olive situation hasn’t been affected by the storm. Not to my knowledge. Hot dog! Well, fix me a martini, will you? And I’m gonna get out of these wet clothes. How would you like your martini? Dry, giles. Very dry. Banker muller: Welcome, ms. Spencer. Oh, actually, it’s collins now. Oh, I’d love for you to meet my husband, dr. Kevin collins. Ah. Hans muller. Pleased to meet you. Mr. Muller. Have a seat. Thank you. I’ve known your lovely wife for years. Oh, yes. My gosh. How long have we been doing business? Wait. Don’t answer that. I don’t think I want to know that number. But he’s been a friend of the family for a long time. So what can I do for you, mrs. Collins? You can help me find my son.

I’m flattered. But I’m not buying it. What? There’s gotta be another reason you’re still here. Your shift ended hours ago. Oh, I am insulted.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, well, maybe I am waiting around for some lab results, but the thought of seeing you was an added incentive for sticking around. Oh, well, you won’t be seeing me around here at night anymore ’cause the kids are done with camp, school’s about to start, and I have to switch back to days. I like seeing you anytime I can, but I got to admit, these — these nights have been kind of special. I wouldn’t necessarily call a 12-hour shift “special.” I sort of meant spending time with you has been nice. Our talks on the roof. When you stole my spot? O-okay. I thought we pretty much cleared this up. That bench was always my spot. I’m pretty sure

you are the interloper. Interloper? I’ve never been described as an interloper. Well, if the bench fits. Hey, whoever gets there first, okay? That sounds like a challenge.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Pager beeps ] Ugh. Patient calls. Good night, dr. Finn. Good night, nurse baldwin. So how’d it go with charlotte? I’m sure she was excited, you know, spending the night at your place. Yeah, she was. She was. It’s just she’s going through a lot right now. It’s difficult for her. She’S…acting out. S-she’s, what, 14? It’s hard for me to believe this, but she’s 15. Well, acting out comes with the territory at that age. Yeah. You got to be, you know — have patience with her. I am. I am. It’s just… yeah? You know, when valentin and I were together, I was her stepmother for a while. And even though we’re not together now, I still think of charlotte as my family. Family is very important. It’s the most important thing. Yeah. Hey… since we’re on the subject of family… …we need to talk about yours. Not that I don’t appreciate the company, but what are you doing here, willow? Michael and I heard about the attack, and we were so worried about you. Hm. I had to come see you. So michael stayed home with the kids. Well, that is very sweet. But you didn’t have to come. It’s the least I can do.

[ Chuckles ] You literally saved my life. If you hadn’t rescued liesl, I wouldn’t have gotten the bone-marrow transplant, and I might not be here. A visit from me certainly can’t compare, but I wanted you to know that I’m thinking about you. Thank you. Is there anything you want or need to talk about? The attack? No. No. Well, there is — there is one thing I need to know, and it’s — it’s pretty important. Anything. I need to know how wiley’s tee-ball team is doing.

[ Chuckles ] My son has been missing for months now, and I’m afraid that something’s happened. He hasn’t contacted you at all? No. No. And he left behind two sons. One of them is just a baby. And I don’t believe that he would just abandon them. So I’m actually kind of afraid that maybe he’s being held against his will. Kevin and I have been searching for him for weeks now, but we haven’t come up with any leads. We’ve been to all the cassadine properties in russia and greece, but there’s no sign of him. I’m happy to try and help any way I can. But what makes you think nikolas is in geneva? Because his money is here. Ava: Thank you for making this fire, giles. I know it’s a bit early for it, but I was so damp. I feel better already. And, you know, I’ll feel even better once I get the martini.

[ Electricity crackles ][ Thunder crashes ]

[ Gasps ] Ohh! Oh!

[ Gasps ] I’m so sorry. Let me get you a napkin. No, no, no, no, no. It’s quite alright. I told you I wasn’t meant to be dry tonight. This came from the real-estate agency. Oh, thank you. Well, thank you so much. I’m off this evening, but there’s plenty of food in the kitchen. Well, I’ll be having a liquid dinner. Thanks so much. And get home safely.

[ Thunder rumbles ] I cannot wait to move off this island. What a beautiful night. Thank you, spencer. There’s no reason to thank me. All I did was place a few phone calls, one to the hotel, another to the restaurant, and then to the ticket concierge. It’s not a big deal. Well, though everything has been wonderful, I’m not talking about the reservations. I know how hard it is for you to get away, and you have to deal with esme and be there for ace. And I just want to let you know how grateful I am that you made time for us. I love us. Me too. And… I love you, spencer cassadine. So very much.

God. I can’t believe this is all my fault. This is not on you, mom. Oh, michael, it is, too! I’m the one who insisted on investing in aurora. I’m the one who took my chance and I put all my money into that stock. That’s what led to the insider-trading charges. You had no idea that was gonna happen. Yes, someone is to blame, but it’s not you. Whoever called the sec, they’re to blame. Do you still think it was ned? There’s no way to know. Now that he thinks he’s — he’s eddie maine, we may never know, but I’m — I’m working on it. What do you mean, you’re working on it? I may have a lead on the whistleblower, okay, but — really? Yes, but that’s not gonna get drew out of prison any sooner. I’ll fill you in later, but right now we need to focus on getting him home. Okay. Okay. I reached out to diane. And she thinks that our best strategy is to put pressure on the judge to either reduce or commute drew’s sentence. Okay, well, how do we do that? I have some information on the judge, and I’m gonna use it. And these days, all the kids get a trophy. And wiley didn’t understand it at first, since, you know, they lost every game. He said, “mom, I thought only winners get trophies.” So I told him everyone is a winner at tee-ball. Ah. Well… has he maybe tried soccer? Oh, no. Young mr. Corinthos wouldn’t even consider it. I’m afraid wiley takes after his dad. He is so stubborn. He will not give up no matter how many times he strikes out. Aww.

[ Laughs ] Nina came last week, and she could not believe how committed our slugger is. Wow. Well, that must mean that you and nina are getting along, huh? It’s going better than I ever imagined. Nina’s been respecting boundaries. She always calls to make sure it’s okay to come over. She’s great with the kids. And wiley loves his grandmother. Lights up when he sees her. I’m so happy that things are going better. That’s great. And how’s michael doing with all this? I mean, has his opinion of nina changed? Like I said… michael’s stubborn. Something happen between you and michael? No. No. It’s not michael. It’S…gladys. What did she do now? Well, sonny, she’s in serious debt. She owes a lot of money to selina wu. Well, that’s somebody you don’t want to mess with. How’d you find out? She came to me. She came to my office. She asked me for money. She wanted me to bail her out because she was too afraid to approach you. Let me guess how she got into this hole. Gambling. She lost a lot of money. Apparently she’s been playing for months. Damn it! The hell is wrong with gladys?! Didn’t she see what gambling did to mike? It pretty much destroyed his life! What was she thinking?! Well, that’s the point, sonny. She wasn’t thinking. And I hate to tell you this, but it gets worse. Before she came to me, she found another way to get the money. How? Gladys was stealing money from sasha. Here’s to the end of the wyndemere era. Good riddance to this place and everything that happened here. Is this how it ends between us, ava? You turned my own son against me? You saw fit to weaponize spencer! I can’t take credit for that. You did it all by yourself. When avery is gone, I guarantee you will feel an emptiness in your soul like I will for the rest of your life.

[ Grunts ] Unh! We have a saying in the U.S. “Follow the money.” That’s what led us here. Is there anything you can tell us? Nikolas indeed has a substantial amount of money with us, but it’s separate from the cassadines’ estate. As you know, the assets are entailed, so they belong to the estate and can only be used by the designated heir. Nikolas has several separate accounts. A large amount was sent to him by his uncle victor. My condolences on his death. Oh, that won’t be — are there… has there been any recent activity in nikolas’ accounts? Yes, as a matter of fact, there’s been quite a bit. There have been several withdrawals at this bank. Well, have you seen him, then? No, but let me print out all the records for you. I’ll be back in a second. Thank you. Thank you very much. This could mean that nikolas is alive. Oh, kevin. I hope so. I do not believe you. What? That I’m in love with you? You better believe it. No, no, no. It took you so long to say it. I was just professing my love to you back in the hotel room, and then you didn’t say anything back, so I just assumed that — that I didn’t feel the same way. Well, I didn’t know. Why didn’t you say anything back then? Well, I learned a thing or two from aunt stella. She said good things come to those who wait. Okay, well, I would have waited an eternity to hear you say those words. And I’m so glad that you finally did. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’m not exactly the most patient person in the world, trina. Oh, no. You?!

[ Laughs ] What are you thinking about, spencer? How I am the luckiest guy in the world. I’ve loved you for so very long, trina. Since the day that I met you. That was a long time ago, wasn’t it? We’ve certainly been through a lot since then.

Just the way you say my name trina!

[ Gasps ] Thank you for catching me, mr. Cassadine. Well, I’ll always be there to catch you, ms. Robinson.

You make me catch my breath

I knew the night we met

I was never leaving trina: They’re beautiful. Spencer: Every time I look at those figurines, I think about how much I missed you last christmas. Just like these two doves, we are a matched pair. We belong together. Do I make your life better or just harder? Seems like you’re there for me when it’s important. No, it seems like I’m always the one who is getting you into dangerous situations. That’s okay. I wouldn’t change it. Spencer!

Ohh, I need yes! Yes! Yes!

Here and now, kiss me now

baby, you’re my everything trust that I’m not going anywhere.

Hold me close

all I know, here’s where I want to be the best is yet to come.

So you’re telling me that gladys is stealing from her daughter-in-law. Yeah, gladys has been siphoning money from sasha’s bank account for months until she drained it. And she was desperate because she still owed selina wu a lot of money. And then when sasha came to gladys and said that she wanted to end the conservatorship, then she panicked. Gladys doesn’t want anyone to know what she’s been doing. Sasha came to me months ago and said she felt stronger and she didn’t need a guardian. Gladys told me that… she was against ending the guardianship. Are you trying to tell me that she… tried to make sure this didn’t happen? Sonny, gladys did a lot more than just that. I get where michael’s coming from. I really do. We all know how carly feels about nina, but, man, I just keep getting reminded. Not only is life short, it is so fragile. We shouldn’t just waste our time arguing with people and holding grudges.

[ Inhales sharply ] It just takes too much energy. I know. After losing my mother, I realized how important family is. I mean, harmony was never really my family, but the quartermaines are. Mm. I feel so blessed to be a part of them. They are so generous and loving and — and crazy. And stubborn. And combative. And —

[ Laughs ] I know, I know. But I wouldn’t trade them for anything. Neither would I.

[ Faucet squeaks ]

[ Thunder crashes ]

[ Screams ] Okay. Here are the current records for mr. Cassadine’s accounts. Thank you. Thank you so much. Oh. Wow! Ha. There are quite a few withdrawals, aren’t there? And these dates line up. They started just a few months ago. Yeah, right after nikolas went missing. And my colleagues tell me the withdrawals were made in person by mr. Cassadine. Uh, as you can see, there’s a recent transfer for a substantial amount. Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] I will leave you with these records. I have to attend to another matter. Thank you. I — you’ve been so helpful. I can’t thank you enough. Always a pleasure, laura. And nice meeting you, dr. Collins. We appreciate you looking into this. Thank you. Of course. He’s alive. My son is alive. Oh, thank god! And this might lead us to him. Ohh. Would you like to see our dessert menu? No, thank you. We have to get going. I’ll take the check. Thank you.

What are we thinking?

[ Laughs ] I’m not thinking. I’m tired of thinking. I don’t want to think anymore. Me neither. Gladys insisted that sasha needed to leave ferncliff now. I mean, she needed to get away from this so-called doctor that was taking care of her, and the only way to do that was to pay this guy off. Son of a bitch! Yeah, well, a lot of stuff happened, but the bottom line is, cody bell broke sasha out of ferncliff. Dante’s friend? Yeah. I mean, somehow he got into ferncliff and he took her with him. Gladys said that cody kidnapped her, but I don’t buy that. I am sorry that gladys put you in this position. No, I-I’m sorry that I didn’t tell you earlier. I was just trying to fix it myself. Anyway, you do not need to apologize. Gladys is family. I’ve put up with this way too long. That’s on me. Gladys will be dealt with. Thanks for coming to see me.

[ Monitor beeping ] So, diane said this judge is hoping to get a seat on the circuit court, and it’s really important because it’s a stepping stone to the supreme court. What does that have to do with drew’s sentence? He was hoping to look good. I mean, he may have given drew a harsher sentence because he wanted to look good to the justice department. I don’t know, michael. I don’t know. I know it’s all speculation and it’s gonna be really tough to prove actual misconduct. What if we don’t have to prove it? What if the appearance of misconduct is enough? What do you mean? Well, let’s say that we get this story out in the press. Maybe drew’s case gains some traction. Yes! We could get alexis to run a piece in the invader, and that would put pressure on the judge! We have to tread lightly, though, because alexis is a former attorney and she’s scrupulous. Alexis wouldn’t run a hit piece on judge kim just because you ask her to. She wouldn’t do it for me. But there’s someone else she’d do it for. What the hell are you doing here? Did giles let you in? What? The guy in the penguin suit? Oh, he’s long gone. What do you want, mason? Well, it depends. What are you offering? Nothing. I said my piece yesterday, so get out of here! I said get out of here, or I’ll call the cops! Go for it. We’ll be long gone before they even get here. We? Yeah. Spencer…

it’s your love

it’s your love

I’m caught up in the midst of it

feel my touch, such a rush

right here in the thick of it

now I see you’re all I need

here and now, kiss me now

baby, you’re my everything

hold me close, all I know

here’s where I want to be

just the way you say my name

it pulls me closer in

you make me catch my breath

I knew the night we met

I was never leaving

and now I see you’re all I need

here and now

kiss me


Ahh. Alexis just doesn’t write a story at anyone’s request, so who are we talking about here? I’ll let you know when it works. But you — you said you had a lead on who tipped off the sec. Yeah. You know how I was convinced that it had to be ned. But then before eddie surfaced, ned said that he had nothing to do with it. Yeah, and olivia insists that ned is innocent. And until ned knows who he is, we’re not gonna get any information there. I know. I know. So I’ve taken other steps to get to the bottom of this. I was able to cultivate a contact at the sec. We are going to find out who turned you and drew in. That’s a promise. You know, honey, we can’t fix anything tonight, so why don’t we just — why don’t we go to bed? Okay? Come on. Yeah. What’s all that? Oh, this is just a few things that olivia said she was gonna send me for wedding planning. I thought it was a few things and not “war and peace.” I mean, meghan and harry had less paperwork. It’s gonna take me forever to get through all this stuff. You know, I just — I’m just not in the right head space for any of this. You got a lot on your plate. I do. I do. I’m up to my neck in the december issue of crimson. And get this — we were supposed to have a photo shoot. No, we are gonna have a photo shoot tomorrow, but my model, she bailed on me last-minute, so we’re in a scramble to try to find somebody el– you know what? It doesn’t even matter. The most important thing is us. The only thing that matters is planning our wedding. No. Actually, the only thing that matters… is getting married. How can — what are you doing here? I came looking for you. Why? I came to warn you. Warn me? About what?!

[ Mouthing words ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Chuckles ] I have no words for you.

[ Laughing ] Wow.

[ Sighs ] Yeah. Wow. Ohh… you see anything? I’m looking for a pattern, some clue as to where nikolas might be now. But, you know, it’s this one very large withdrawal. Do you think maybe he opened another account so that he could maybe hide what he’s doing or where he is? Maybe. But we’re not gonna figure out anything right now. Let’s take these back to the hotel for champagne. For champagne? Yes, champagne. This is information worth celebrating. Yes, it is, isn’t it? Oh, yes! My son’s alive, and that is worth celebrating. Oh, my goodness. And our search was not in vain. I’m not going anywhere with you. I wouldn’t do that if I were you. You stay away from me. You ratted us out, ava. Wasn’t smart.

Amy, have you checked on mr. Lamming in 1002? I have, and he’s fine. Good. You look tired. You want me to get you one? Nothing like a little caffeine to help get you through the night shifts. Ooh. No, no, no. I will never sleep tonight if I have one of those. Dr. Finn! Here are the labs you’ve been waiting…for. Thank you. Uh, wait a minute. Why do you both have wet hair? Hey. You know when I’m happiest? When? When I’m with you. Really? Really. I mean it. Hello. I assume you’re here for more money. Yes. I need to make another withdrawal. You just missed your mother. Oh. Did I? Yeah. She was here with her husband. They’re looking for you. See, nikolas, your mother is a very gracious woman. She loves you. And your disappearance… gave her a large amount of pain. Be a good son… and do the right thing. I plan to.

[ Thunder crashes ] Carly: Why aren’t you sleeping? You should be resting. I got some sleep. And then willow came to visit. And I’m sure that I’m going to — I’m gonna nod off again. So I’m good. You — you should go home. You should be with the girls. Josslyn’s with them. They’re fine. I’m not gonna stay long. I just needed to be with you. Even if it’s just to watch you sleep. I love you. I’m so sorry this happened to you. Don’t worry. Everything is gonna be okay. You’re damn right it’s gonna be okay… because I’m gonna make sure of it. Is drew okay? Yeah, I-I think so. It looks like drew will recover. The surgery went well. We had a good visit. I’m really glad I saw him. Willow, what’s wrong? It — it’s — it’s nothing. Willow, if you’re not feeling well, you have to tell me. No, no, it’s — it’s not that. After I left drew’s room, I sat in the lounge for a bit and nodded off. Willow, you’re pushing yourself too hard. You should have waited before going back to work. Okay. I guess I was a bit more tired than I realized. But that’s — that’s not what’s bothering me. I… had the strangest dream about my mother. What, nina? No. Harmony. But it was only a dream. I don’t care about the dress and the flowers and the — the cake. It doesn’t matter! Well, it seems like it matters to you ’cause you’re doing a lot of planning. Yeah. Right. Yeah, I mean, I have, but, you know, it’s all so insignificant right now with everything that has happened this last few months, with sasha being committed and curtis getting shot. I mean, planning a big wedding, I feel really guilty about that because a lot of people that we love are suffering. Yes. I got an idea. You do? What? Why don’t we elope? I’m serious. Listen. All we care about is to say our vows and become husband and wife. You even said that you don’t want to deal with this right now. I know, but — but — sonny, elope? No, it’s — the planning’s gonna be out of control. Olivia’s gonna keep coming to you with, you know, more options. Do we really care what icing is on the cake?

[ Chuckles ] I don’t know. It’S… we will fly to the island tomorrow. We will get married. What do you say? I say yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!
