[ Knock on door ]

[ Panting ] Hang on a second.

[ Exhaling sharply ] Hey. Hey, aunt stella. Is this a bad time? No, not at all, if you don’t mind waiting for me to finish another set. Oh, not at all. Come on in.

[ Exhaling heavily ] Nobody else here? No, just me. You think they shouldn’t have left me alone? Did I say that? No. I know you’ve been on your own for a while now, and you’re doing just fine.

[ Grunts ] Keeping track of me, huh? Always have. I’m not gonna change now.

[ Chuckles ] Working hard there. Yeah, well, you know — very impressive. Just trying to keep it all together. Yeah, well, you’re doing better than keeping it all together. I am very proud of you, curtis. Thank you, auntie. You know, all these exercises — in fact, everything I do — it’s for trina and portia… and marshall. How’s that? Oh, you know, uh… every morning there’s a part of me that just — just doesn’t even want to get out of bed. You know? And then I think about my family. They need me. And I will not let them down.

[ Knock on door ] I’ll get it. I’ll get it. What do you want? I heard a rumor going around. Yeah, the buzz is totally positive. No, no, no, I have no idea what you’re talking about, dr. Ashford. Aw, come on, spill, spill. No, no, no, no, no, I don’t want to talk about it yet. I don’t want to talk about it yet, not until I get a chance to tell curtis. And I want to tell him in person. He’s gonna be so hurt if he finds out that everyone at gh knew before he did. So that’s why I’m trying to sneak out of here — so I can see him. He’s going to be thrilled. Can I help you? Hi, giles. You probably don’t remember me, but I’m josslyn jacks. I’m avery’s older sister. Of course. What can I do for you, ms. Jacks? I’m looking for ava. She never picked avery up from the nanny last night. Please come in.

[ Door buzzes ] Another visitor during off hours? Hello, cyrus. Austin: Medically speaking, cyrus renault is still recovering from his heart attack, a heart attack that has done irreparable damage to his heart and left him extremely weak. I do not believe that he is physically a threat to anybody. ‘Cause he’s weak, yeah. Weak, like a great white shark is weak. Austin: I have done exactly what you’ve asked me to do. Now you let ava go. Mason: Oh, you know by now. Neither one of us is calling the shots.

[ Knock on door ] Come in. I’m sorry to bother you, dr. Gatlin-holt. Have you seen ava jerome?

[ “Bridal chorus” plays ]

Gracias por venir a todos.

Bienvenidos. Welcome, everyone. We have been blessed with a beautiful day to witness the joining in matrimony of michael “sonny” corinthos and nina reeves. This is a joyful occasion. And a solemn one. Marriage, as the traditional ceremony, is an honorable one, not to be entered into lightly, but a pledge between two people to honor, support, and love one another for the rest of your lives. Sonny, nina? Is that a pledge you are willing to make? We are. Yeah, we are. I’m here to see my friend.

[ Scoffs ] You don’t have any friends here. And no way are you buying any with that gift basket. Curtis: It’s okay, aunt stella. Selina is A… business associate. Uh-huh. By all means.

[ Speaks chinese ] Your aunt is very protective. I admire that in family. Excuse me. Selina, what are you doing here? You’ve been back home for a while now. I thought I would give you some time to get accustomed to your new life. That was considerate. I hope now you’ve come to your senses and are ready to sell me the savoy. What an unexpected and wonderful surprise. I didn’t know you were back from your trip. We just got back. And you chose to come and see me. I’m — I’m touched. You cut your hair and you shaved and…

[ Sighs ] You know, since I found my true calling, I didn’t feel the need to hide behind appearances.

[ Chuckling ] Oh. I see. Well, uh, you look great. So, tell me — how are you feeling? Our brother told you about my little medical problem. I don’t know that I would call a heart attack a little medical problem. And I am very glad that marty told me. Did he also tell you that it was your aura that pulled me through in my darkest hour? It was drew cain who saved your life. Without the will to live, his cpr might not have been effective. But he is a good man. Yes, he is. He’s a very good man. That’s why it’s such a shame that he’s in here with… with men like me.

[ Chuckles ] I get the feeling that checking on my health isn’t the only reason you’re here. Um, I heard about your application for early release. I see. So, are you here as my sister or as the mayor? I’m also concerned about ms. Jerome’s whereabouts. So she hasn’t been here? She was home when I left, but that was the night before last. She didn’t mention any plans to be away, but when I came to work yesterday, she wasn’t here. She never came home. So, no maid, no housekeeper has seen her? No one on the staff has seen or heard from her. But I did find a broken martini glass on the floor here. Could have been an accident. Perhaps she’s staying with her friend ms. Reeves? No. No, nina’s in puerto rico getting married. Dr. Gatlin-holt’s been a frequent guest recently. We were all under the impression he and ms. Jerome might be close. Recently? No, I — no, I haven’t — I haven’t seen ava. Do you happen to remember the last time you saw or heard from her? Two or three days ago. What, uh… yeah, why are you asking me this? She hasn’t been to her art gallery, and no one has seen or heard from her. You work for sonny corinthos. Am I right about that? Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So, I mean, a couple of days ago, ava mentioned that she was thinking about maybe taking a trip to new york. She said there was an artist that she was interested in signing. That could be very helpful. Thank you for your time. No problem. Ugh!

[ Gasping ] Sonny has a daughter with ava jerome. So he cares about her. If he finds out you had something to do with hurting avery’s mother, I’ll be back. And I won’t be asking questions.

[ Gasping, groaning ]

[ Panting ]

[ Cellphone ringing ] Joss? Hey. I think I found something. Minister caballero: It’s my understanding that you have elected to say your own vows, hmm? I guess you want me to go first? Yeah.

[ Both laugh ] Um… well, I’ve been — been spending all morning writing my vows. And they’re in my pocket. But when I looked in your eyes, I felt like I didn’t need to write my vows ’cause… I can always speak from my heart to you. I want to — I want to thank you for trusting me, for loving me, and for seeing the better man in me than… I ever saw in myself. I appreciate your kindness and your strength and your willingness to just fight for our love… yeah. …Even though… everybody was against us. And when we doubted whether we should be together, we did everything we could to get through that, and here we are. And I’m — I’m convinced more now that we belong together because how I feel right now, in the moment, how I always feel with you, you make me secure. I know you love me. And I love you that much more. And I always will. Curtis, just hear me out. I will keep the entire staff of the savoy, and the name of the club will remain. You and your entire family will have vip memberships for life. And I will increase my original offer to twice what you paid for the club. That’s an extremely generous offer. I agree. So, what do you say? Why are you determined to buy my club? Why not start your own, find a new location at half the price? Good question. In case you’re wondering, I have no idea how the judge is going to rule. I haven’t heard anything yet. Now that you’re back, will you oppose my release? You know, you look just as strong and healthy as the day you got in here. But that said, I’m not a doctor. And as the mayor, I don’t interfere in judicial decisions. I suppose putting in a good word for your brother would be out of the question. Yes. Did marty also tell you that I gave away all my money? Good afternoon. Oh, hey, hey. This is giles, ava’s butler, and he says ava hasn’t been home since the night before last and that nobody on the staff has seen or heard from her. Okay. You said you found something. Yes. Her cellphone and this lollipop. The cellphone was under the coffee table. The lollipop was kind of just sticking out of the couch. And giles found a broken martini glass on the floor. Miss avery must have dropped the lollipop last time she was here. No, no. This isn’t avery’S. How do you know? Because it’s grape and avery hates grape. So somebody else had to have been here. And ava would have never left her cellphone in case avery needed to get in touch with her. I saw cameras everywhere as I walked up to the house. There have to be more, right? Yes. I need to see the footage from the minute you left ava. To be honest, I never imagined that I would be here right now with you. It’s actually the last thing that I ever expected or wanted. And I fought it for a very long time. I kept telling myself that we would never work. And as I was doing that, my heart has kept falling deeper and deeper in love with you. And I couldn’t fight my heart anymore, could I? Or you. Your charm, your humor, your compassion, your courage, your loyalty, your dance moves. I mean, what more could a person ask for in someone they love? And then I saw you parent your children… how you fiercely love, how you are willing to fight for them, for their protection. I’ve always wanted a family, since I was a little girl. My daughter is finally part of my life. And the two of us are part of your family. You have given me so much. You have given me a family. And I want to give you something. I am gonna surround you with love for your entire life. I promise you that. And we can leave all our mistakes in the past. I will walk with you, hand in hand, right beside you, loving you… for the rest of your life.

I don’t have the time or theinclination to open a new club. It’s too much work, and I have a busy schedule. The savoy is already established. That’s why I’ll be paying you top dollar for it. Did you hear how she made it sound like it’s a done deal? Good afternoon, dr. Robinson.

[ Door closes ] Portia: Oh. Hello. You got here just in time. Ms. Wu brought us a basket filled with treats. Why don’t you have a seat, portia, and I’ll make us some tea so we can all get to know each other better. What kind of tea would you like, ms. Wu? That’s kind of you, but I have another appointment. Oh, that’s just too bad. Maybe another time, then.

[ Speaks chinese ] I’ll be in touch. Thanks for the basket. Amen. Giles: You can see the front entrance is well covered by several cameras. Alright. There you are leaving. And this is the night before last? Yes, sir. And she was alone when you left? Yes, sir. Feel free to examine the rest of the footage. I must check on a delivery. Please help ms. Jerome. Dex: There. Someone’s coming in. Yeah, I see him, but I can’t see his face. He’s wearing a hood. Around 20 minutes later… oh! Okay. There’s ava. She’s with him. I just — [ Sighs ] I can’t tell if her hands are tied or if she’s just walking super close to him. Here, let’s check the dock camera around that time. He didn’t use the launch. Well, he would still have to go back to port charles, no? Wait. Right there. Right there. He has his own boat. That’s what they left on. But if we want to see where they came ashore, we need to see the harbor security cameras and traffic cameras from that time. We can’t do that without going to the cops. Oh, there’s another way. Spinelli: Who knocks? Spinelli, it’s josslyn. You’re watching us through the security camera. Greetings, clever girl. And friend. What brings you to my door? Yeah, so I, uh —

[ Clears throat ] I examined the patient right after you, and I have to say, your prognosis was spot on.

[ Clears throat ] It was very impressive. Excuse me. Thank you. Uh, doctor, are you alright? Uh, yeah, I’m fine. I, uh — I went to a concert last night, and I was — I was vocally very enthusiastic. Ah. What was the band?

[ Door opens ] Mason: So — oh. Sorry. My cousin here needed to see me. I have seen so much suffering in here. I felt my money could do more good trying to help these poor souls. Mm-hmm. Yes, marty did mention to me that you’d given some of your money to a recidivism organization. Not “some” of my money. Every dime.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Chuckling ] Oh, you don’t believe that? Well, I-I guess we’ll see, won’t we, uh, if you are granted your early release. How little faith you have in your brother. They were ill-gotten gains. I have come to realize and appreciate that. I hope so, cyrus. You don’t seem to doubt the generosity of your friend sonny corinthos when he gives away his dirty money. Your vows were so clearly from the heart. Now, please repeat after me. “I, sonny, take you, nina…” I, sonny, take you, nina… I, nina, take you, sonny… …to be my wife, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer… …in sickness and in health, forsaking all others… …till death do us part. …Till death do us part.

[ Laughs ] Oh!

[ Laughs ] With this ring, I thee wed. With this ring, I thee wed.

Having made your vows, each to the other in the presence of god and these witnesses, you are now husband and wife.

[ Chuckles ] What god has joined let no one put asunder. I think you know what happens next.

[ Laughter ] You’re supposed to kiss!

[ Laughter ] What was that about? That woman was trying to — selina, uh, came to talk business, but, honey, what are you doing here in the middle of the day? Oh! Oh, well, I wanted to tell you something in person, but I wanted it to be official. Wait. For what to be official? I’ve been named co-chief of staff at general hospital.

[ Laughs ] Congratulations! That’s great, sweetheart. Whoo! It’s gonna be a lot more administrative work, meetings, a ton of e-mails, but… and you know you can handle all that. Yeah. Yeah, you’ll be great. Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] And it’s gonna be a little extra money. Oh, well, as it should be for all that extra work. Thank you. They will be very lucky to have you, dr. Robinson, and I couldn’t be more proud of my intelligent, accomplished, and very gorgeous wife. Mm! Oh, honey.

[ Squeals ] Congratulations. Thank you. Sorry. We couldn’t download the footage directly from the wyndemere system, so all we have is this video that I took of the tablet we had access to. It’s pretty degraded. Okay, perhaps, but your ingenuity is impressive. Um, we also found ava’s cellphone at wyndemere, but I don’t know the pin to get in. Do you think you could break into it? I’m afraid it would take time that ava does not have. Let’s get back to what we know. The butler departed the house at 10:57 that night. At 11:18, an unidentified figure, likely male, entered the house. Now, there’s no footage from the interior, so we don’t know what happened inside, but at 11:39, the unidentified figure left through the front door with ava. They were close together. He appears to be leading her. And from her posture, it’s likely her hands were tied. They arrive at the docks at 12:03 A.M., And they leave in a single-engine outboard. That’s what we have. Well done. You’ve certainly given a briefing before. Yeah, I have. Spinelli, what we really need to know is where they docked the boat in port charles. So, do you think you could get access to the harbor security and traffic cameras? Dr. Ashford, I apologize. My cousin is unaware of hospital protocol. You could have just now interrupted a consultation with a patient. I’m sorry. I’m just a truck driver. I don’t know anything about hospital protocols. So, I hope you can forgive me, dr. Ashford. No, no problem. We’re — we’re finished. Thank you, doctor. Mm. So, you’re a truck driver? Used to be. Now I kind of do a little bit of everything. Well, it was good to see you again. You too. Do not get high and mighty with me about manners. Look, you said you needed to see me right away. What’s going on? Sonny corinthos knows. Sonny has nothing to do with the way I view you, cyrus. Oh, I am well aware of that, dear sister. Sonny and I were in the same kind of business for years, and I never thought much about him. But then I see him treated with such reverence, an honored member of the port charles community, with a respected family, when he is no better than I am. Congratulations! Welcome to the family. Aww! It’s official. Thank you so much, kristina. My turn. Come here, girl. Give me a hug. And I want you to know something, okay? Okay. Daddy always loves you. You know that, right? I love you, daddy.

[ Chuckles ] Give me another hug.

[ Chuckles ] Can I call you mama nina now? Aww!

Here you go I would love nothing more.

Congratulations. Ah. You know, your mother’s the best thing that ever happened to me. And I just want you to know that… you mean everything to her.

[ Laughing ] Congratulations. Thank you, willow. You know, it means so much that you are here.

[ Sighs ]

[ Indistinct conversations ] Well, good job, dad. Well, congratulations, nina. Welcome to the family. Thank you.

Before it’s too late this news definitely calls for a celebration! Yes!I’m taking the two of you out to dinner tonight to celebrate. Alright. Marshall and trina, too. Well, you know what? We could actually have dinner in here tonight. You know, have some champagne. It’ll be a little bit more relaxing, right? No, mnh-mnh. Auntie’s right. This is a big deal, and we should celebrate it. Right, auntie? You said it, baby. I suppose sonny and i have a sort of friendship that I guess, uh — well, it surprises some people. But I had no idea that it upset you that much. I’m sorry. I am not upset at sonny. I suppose I just envy his life and the fact that he seems to have a much closer relationship with my sister than I do. I have known sonny for a very long time. Yes. Yeah. Look, I know it’s unlikely, but if I do get my release, perhaps you and i can build a bond even stronger than the one you have with sonny. It’s time, renault. Wish me luck. Good luck, cyrus.

[ Laughs ] Thank you so much for coming, dear sister. I hope to see you again very soon. There. That was the boat. How did you see that? It was so fast. Unique powers of observation. Okay, uh, here we are. Pier 17. Yes. So, the abductor, if that’s what he is, chose his landing spot well. You see the area around the pier? It’s all warehouses. It would be deserted at that hour, so even if ava were to call for help, she wouldn’t likely be heard. Wait. Look. He took off his hood. Can you tighten that image? Yes, of course, but the cameras are not high res. It might be a little grainy. I know that guy. That’s austin gatlin-holt’s cousin — mason. One of sonny’s guys was here, and he was asking about ava. So?

[ Sighs ] What do you mean, “so?” Nobody’s heard from her in a couple days.

[ Scoffs ] ‘Cause she’s locked in a basement somewhere. Who cares? I care. I care very much. Oh, how sweet. Cuz is in love. I’m not joking around here, mason. Don’t you hurt her. You know better than to threaten me. Isn’t it enough that she spent all this time thinking that she killed nikolas and nikolas is alive and well in — he’s fine. He’s in europe. Hey, I didn’t tell the guy to take off. And it was cyrus who wanted him kept alive in the first place. Nikolas is his nephew. Oh, forgive me. Cyrus just never struck me as the sentimental type when it came to family. Yeah, well, maybe we’re wrong about that.

[ Scoffs ] Mason, you need to convince cyrus to leave ava alone. If that guy comes back for me… put him off. No. I thought I already had. He punched me in the gut. He grabbed me. He had me in a chokehold. He said if anything happens to ava, he’s coming back for me. Looks like you got a problem, cuz.

[ Cellphone vibrating ] Oh, uh… got to take this real quick. Be right back. Wiley. Can I dance with my little girl? Yes. Hey, wiley, why don’t you ask your grandmother to dance, hmm? Want to dance?

[ Gasps ] Do I! Yes! Hey, look, I’m at a family function. I can’t talk long. So, you have the name of the person who turned drew cain in to the sec?

Now, what have you got? The sec was contacted by a lawyer named martin grey, acting on behalf of a client. Grey was just the go-between. I need the name of the person who pointed the sec to my mom and drew. Stella: Oh, let me help you with that. Oh, no. No, I got it. Hey, don’t you have to head back to the hospital, co-chief of staff?

[ Laughs ] I do, actually. Well, I’m gonna go take a shower, and I will see you tonight. I can’t wait. Alright. Portia, why don’t you come on over here and get this gift basket and take it to the hospital for the nurses to enjoy. Oh. Okay. You don’t have to do everything, portia. What? You have this wonderful, well-deserved job, and you’re making more money. Right. And the savoy is — it’s making money. Yeah, but curtis isn’t there. And in his mind, he’s not making a dime. He needs you — he needs all of us to live out our lives as normally as possible and not walk on eggshells around him. He can go out to the restaurant and have a fine time. I just was thinking maybe he would be more comfortable here, that’s all.

[ Sighs ] If something is making curtis uncomfortable, he’s a grown man and he can tell us himself. And, believe me, I know curtis. He will. Okay? Okay. Thank you. Okay. Thank you. Good. Now, here, take this. The whole thing, stella? Really? Absolutely. You don’t want nothing that woman has to offer in your house. Are you sure that’s the same guy? Positive. This guy mason has ties to someone who’s working against sonny. I’m not sure who yet. I mean, but how can you tell from this picture? When I was following him, he always had a lollipop in his mouth. Oh, my god. Well, that would explain the grape lollipop at ava’S. Here we go. Alright, the vehicle that ava and mason got into that night is registered to a pautuck trucking company. Pautuck, new york. Okay, I’m gonna need a list of all the employees employed by the trucking company and their addresses, as well as any properties owned or leased by the trucking company. That’s where we’ll find ava. You’re right — I have a problem because for some reason, cyrus hates sonny corinthos. Can you please explain that to me? Because I don’t understand. Isn’t there enough to go around for everybody? There’s plenty there, right? There used to be. Look, I don’t get it either, alright? Honestly, I think the whole thing started when the boss found out that mayor collins was his sister. What does that have to do with anything? I don’t know. I’m just telling you. Look, that — that’s when cyrus started mentioning sonny more and more. Then he would rant on and on about corinthos and the life that he had. What life? They have the same life. They’re both mob bosses. Yeah, but he calls sonny “respectable.” Like, it’s almost as if it was something that he wanted for himself and he doesn’t have. Great. So, my life is in danger because cyrus is jealous of sonny corinthos. Honestly, you know what? I think it goes deeper than that.

[ Breathes deeply ] That guy comes back, sonny’s guy, and I’m gonna spill my guts. And their next move is to come after you. And then you’ll be as dead as me. Look, don’t do anything stupid, austin, alright? You’re only protection from sonny is the boss, so just do what you’re told. Let the boss handle corinthos. Alright?

[ Door slams ]

[ Kids chanting “cake!” ] Kristina: Come on. Cut the cake. Cake, cake, cake. Cake, cake.

[ Laughter ] Guard: This is it. You’re free to go. Thanks. Well played, renault. You know your way out. Oh, I certainly do.

[ Laughter ] Sonny: Here we go. Yeah!

[ Cheering ] Yay.

[ Laughter ] Let me see. That’s a huge piece. Oh, my gosh.

[ Laughter ] Go ahead. Ahh!

[ Cheers and applause ] Yeah!

[ Door buzzes ]

[ Laughs ] Here.
