THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Louie I call you, you don’t call me back. Text you, you don’t text me back. So, here I am in person. Good. This is long overdue. Hey, josslyn. Hey. Oh. I’m glad you’re back. Hey. What’s up? Let’s study for next week’s organic chem exam. I really need you to quiz me on baldwin’s rules for ring closing. Oh, adam, I’m sorry, I-I can’t study tonight. I’m so tired. Oh, come on. Josslyn, you know I need to ace this. If I don’t, my — my parents will — will kill me. Yes, adam, I know. Your parents. I’m sorry, I just — I can’t tonight. Joss, I don’t think you understand. There’s a lot riding on this next exam. Adam, you got a 92 at the beginning of the semester, okay? That’s better than pretty much everyone else in our class. Trust me. You got this. Josslyn, please. Just….give me an hour. We’ll only go over chapter six. Hey, back off. Hey, handsome. Hey. I have been working on the colors for the den renovations for hours, and you are just in time to help. Hey, the kids around? Uh, danny and rocco are at a friend’s, and scout is with drew at the quartermaines’. Why? What’s going on? Uh, I got an update on charlotte, and I didn’t want them to hear about it.
[ Knock on door ] Hey. Come on in. Frank said that you were free. Do you have a minute? Can I get you a drink? Yeah, I could really use a drink. Scotch? Yeah. Thanks. Alright. That’s good. Thank you. You want to tell me what’s going on? I think you need to ramp up security. I was right. You were the target of the shooting at the metro court pool. Can’t do what, exactly? I can’t work with cody anymore. What? Why not? Isn’t it obvious? I have feelings for him. Oh, sasha, it’s okay if you have feelings for cody. He has feelings for you, too. Oh. [ Chuckles ] What? Hey. Moll. What’s going on? Hey, uh, come — come sit down. No, I-i don’t want to sit down. I want you to tell me what’s happening. Something happened? I can feel it. Tj? Andrea had a miscarriage. She lost our baby. Sorry, I know I shouldn’t have been eavesdropping. I was just passing by. I heard my name. No, no. Uh, I’m sorry. I should have picked a better time and place to talk about this with maxie. Okay. Yeah. So I got to go talk to haven about something. I’m gonna let you work this out amongst yourselves. I will say one thing, though. For what it’s worth, it would be a mistake to talk yourselves out of something that you are both clearly feeling. Huh. Okay, well… what maxie said about me, having feelings for you… she’s right. I do. How’s that cousin of yours doing? Is he still managing to hang on? Yeah. Yeah. He — he’s, uh — he’s recovering really well. Oh, good. Uh-huh. Yeah, they’re going to move him to the infirmary in pentonville, and the word on the street is that they’re working out a plea deal with him, and, uh… and that’s good, because that way, you don’t have to relive the trauma of a kidnapping in a trial situation, right? Oh, I would love nothing more than to testify against that creep. So, do you know the terms of his deal? Has mason agreed to give up his boss, cyrus renault? I’m sorry. I’m just… I’m really stressed out about our exam next week. Yeah, that’s still not an excuse to grab joss. You’re right. It’s not. But you’re not a student, so you can’t possibly understand the stress of being pre-med and the kind of pressure we’re under right now. Okay, okay, let’s all calm down. Adam, I think that you need to find someone else to study with. Alright? Your schedule and how often you need to study — it doesn’t really mesh with mine. Besides, I study better alone, okay? I’m really sorry. Josslyn, please don’t do that. I really need you. That’s what you’ve been telling me, but why are you so sure now? Well, up until this point, there’s always been the possibility that… the shooting was linked to the other incidents that have happened — the burning of my house, the break-in at the hotel suite. That’s not a possibility now? No. No, because the person responsible for those things could never have taken a shot at either you or me. Because the person responsible for the break-in and the arson… was charlotte? Wait a minute. We’re missing something here. Like what? What do you mean? Well, I accept the fact that charlotte vandalized anna’s hotel suite. I can even get behind the idea that she burned anna’s house down if she had a reason, but charlotte lived with us for what? Like, over a month? And I’ve been conned enough times in my life to know when I’m being played, and I just never got the feeling from her that she was playing us. Neither did I. It doesn’t make sense. I don’t buy that she would go to these extremes because she didn’t want anna dating her father. Yeah, I agree. So, there’s got to be another reason. Could this have anything to do with anna’s past in the wsb? When did you find out? Today. Andrea came to see me.
[ Voice breaking ] When? I-I mean, when did she lose our baby? She miscarried late last night. She was asleep at home, then she — she started cramping and — and was bleeding. There wasn’t even time for her to get to the er, and she went to mercy this morning, and the doctor there confirmed it. He confirmed the miscarriage.
[ Sobs ] Why didn’t andrea tell me herself? She couldn’T. She knew how much you wanted this baby. She knew how… devastated you’d be. And she could — she could barely even face me.
[ Sobs ] But fortunately, andrea is alright. Fortunate? What’s fortunate about us losing our baby? I didn’t mean it. I didn’t mean it like that. I’m sorry. Molly, I am hurting just as bad as you are, okay? I know. I didn’t mean to snap at you like that. Obviously, I’M… I’m relieved that andrea is okay, but…our baby’s gone. I’m so sorry. Tj. I’m so sorry. I’m sorry. I can’t believe this is happening.
[ Knock on door ]
[ Knock on door ] Alexis: Hey, moll? Honey, it’s mom. You left your tablet at the restaurant. I have it, sweetie. Mom.
[ Sobs ] I’m not sure what the terms are of mason’s deal. Why am I not surprised? I’m not even sure there’s a deal at all. I mean, it’s just a rumor at this point. I didn’t hear you deny it. Deny what? That mason is working for cyrus renault. Which means you are working for cyrus renault. All that time I was being blackmailed with threats, I thought if I just do what they want, then the body of my husband will be returned to me! It turns out, though, he isn’t even dead. But that’s great, right? All the pressure that you put on me to do things that I didn’t want to do! To spy on sonny. To hire that — that con artist, betty, to spend time with my daughter! All the sleepless nights believing that I had killed nikolas, thinking that I would go to prison for it. And all of this because of your — your boss or your — your bosses who are too dangerous to cross! Does any of this ring a bell to you?! How many times did you refer to these people?! Well, it turns out there was just one person, right? Cyrus renault! And you could have told me that months ago! You could have told me nikolas was alive! Why didn’t you tell me?! I’m so sorry, honey. Tj, I-I can’t even fathom how upset you two must be right now. I still don’t understand how this happened. I mean, we were so careful. We reviewed all of andrea’s medical records. She had no trouble with her first pregnancy. There was no reason to believe she wouldn’t be able to carry our baby to term. So traumatic for both of you. I-I don’T… well, there aren’t any words. You — I just want you to know that I’m here for you. Whatever you need, honey. Whatever you need, tj. I know, mom. Thank you. Alexis. I was looking forward to putting my hand on andrea’s belly, feeling our baby kick. We were almost to the point of ultrasounds and imaging, finding out if we were having a boy or a girl. Now our baby’s gone. Alright. Okay. It’s okay. I’m really sorry, but obviously, you need someone with more availability than me, okay? I mean, helping my mom out at kelly’s, I have volleyball practice, volleyball games, a heavy courseload. I’m barely skating through. But you helped me pass the last exam. No, I didn’T. That was all you. Look, you’re so smart. There’s, like, 100 kids in our organic chem class, okay? And 90% of them fail their first time around. That means you could probably find someone who’s taking it for a second time to help you. But that’s just not me. But you’ve already helped me. Remember your handwritten notes? Yeah, I started doing that. You’ve helped me a lot in — in ways you don’t even know. I’m really sorry. No worries. It’s cool. I’ll see you later. Oh. That was a lot. Yeah. I feel really bad. So, what’s the deal with him? He thinks he’s going to fail this class, but he’s not going to. I mean, he’s — he’s so smart. He understands the material. Okay, so, then, what’s his problem? His parents, from what he’s told me. I mean, last time we were studying together, he said they were putting immense pressure on him, and I think that the pressure is crushing him. I don’t know how much more he can take. Where are you headed with this? Okay, I’m just throwing it out there, but think about it, okay? Anna and valentin first met in the wsb, and charlotte’s first act of vandalism was to paint “murderer” on anna’s front door after she was exposed in the media for being a traitor. Right, and valentin had at least one brush with prosecution over the crimes he committed, right? Yes, and charlotte would remember that. She’s a smart kid. So, maybe she thinks it’s unfair that anna got to walk free. Yeah, exactly. If charlotte believes that anna’s guilty, she probably thinks that she deserves to be punished for her past crimes. There is no evidence that charlotte burned my house. Has anyone tried to find any? No. No, she’s not an official suspect. She’s not even a person of interest for the pcpd, and if I have any say in the matter, she won’t be. She needs help, not prosecution. She’s just a kid. I understand. But there’s video footage of her breaking into my hotel suite. Valentin — he managed to get rid of it. So, valentin knew? Yeah. He knew. He’s known for the past month that his daughter was stalking me. He chose not to tell me, and because of that, I had absolutely no reason to even imagine that the intruder in my apartment was a child. He said he was keeping silent to protect us. Honestly, I think him keeping silent has just destroyed us. Did valentin know that? We want deception to commit to another appearance by sasha and cody. That’s interesting, ’cause two hours ago, you didn’t even want cody on your stage. Honey, I am a businesswoman first and foremost. Alright? “Selling” is my middle name, and selling means you have to connect to an audience, and you have to have a special kind of chemistry, and sasha and cody have that in spades. In the beginning, when I found out what gladys was doing to you and I tried to stop it, it — it wasn’t about you. What was it about? Well, I — okay, obviously it was — it was about you, but it was — it was more than that, you know? It was about justice. It was about helping someone in trouble. But then I started caring about that someone. Everything that I did, I did to try and protect you. A-and I know… okay. I know how this might sound, but I-I just thought that the less you knew about what was happening, the better. The better for you. The less I knew, the easier it was for you to manipulate me. The less I knew, the easier it was for you to pretend to be my ally, pretend to be my rescuer, pretend to be my friend. I didn’t pretend to be your friend. I was such a fool, right? I am your friend. The whole time, you were just playing me. No, ava — you were following orders from cyrus, and you were lying to my face. I assure you, this had nothing to do with cyrus. I didn’t get close to you because cyrus told me to get close to you. I got close to you because I really like the way it feels to be close to you, and I don’t like the way it feels to not be close to you. The feelings that I have for you, ava — they’re very real. They’re very powerful. I’m not going to stand here and deny that. Everything that I did, I did because I wanted to save you. You just might be on to something. Everyone close to anna knows that there were extenuating circumstances around the things she did in her past, but over the years, she’s worked really hard to overcome and redeem herself. Yeah, but charlotte is just a kid, and she sees things in black and white, and she tends to take things to the extreme. So, in her mind, maybe she thought she was doing something that would help her father. I don’t know. Are you sure it was charlotte that burned anna’s house down? Is there any physical evidence? Nope. At this point, it’s just a theory, and it’s going to stay that way because anna does not want charlotte being looked at as a person of interest in this investigation. I haven’t spoken to valentin since… since he said that his daughter had been stalking me. Has he reached out to you? No. His focus is on charlotte, obviously, as it should be. I mean, if this had happened to robin or emma, their well-being would have been my priority, too. Me, too, if it was any of my kids. I have other things that really concern me. Just trying to piece them together. Like what? Charlotte thinks that — that I shot her on purpose. Like, a child actually believes that I intentionally tried to kill them. Anna, charlotte won’t always believe that. Eventually, she’s going to know the truth. Oh, god, I don’t even know what the truth is anymore. I swear, I don’T. My mom’s alzheimer’s never changed how much we love her thank you, mom. You couldn’t have showed up at a better time. I’m glad I did. I’m just a phone call away if either of you need me. Thank you. Have you told your family? I was in a bit of shock after andrea told me. Like, my head was spinning, so I-I went to see portia. I just — I needed someone to talk to, and I know she’ll keep my confidence. She won’t tell anyone. After I talked to portia, I called you and asked you to come home. I knew something was wrong. I could hear it in your voice. I just [Sighs] — I never imagined it was this. We’ll have to tell our families. Mm-hmm. You know, you do that when you’re ready. You both have suffered a big loss here right now. Okay? So just take your time. I want to get it over with. Will you tell everybody, sam and kris? I-I don’t think I could tell them. I’ll take care of it for you if you want me to. I do. I should tell my mom myself. But… everyone else, I… I will take care of it. Alright? As long as you two take care of each other, you don’t need to worry about anything. Yeah. Thank you. I don’t think I could face anybody right now. Not even my sisters. I guess that adam is doing the best he can, considering all of this pressure his parents are putting him under. I would probably crack. You, on the other hand, do well under pressure, maybe even thrive off of it. But not everybody is wired like that. I think we all have different levels of stress that we can deal with. It’s about learning how to deal with it and not allowing it to consume you. Yeah, well, that’s probably where your military training kicks in. But I know that adam doesn’t know how to handle it. He actually equates a 92% with failure. It sounds funny, but it’s actually really sad. He can’t enjoy what he’s learning. He can’t celebrate his accomplishments. He has these tough parents. He’s stressed out all the time. I mean, he’s probably been that way since he was a kid. It’s really too bad. It explains a lot about him, though.
[ Sighs ] It’s what’s so special about you. You’re always sticking up for people. Yeah, well, it doesn’t seem like anyone’s in adam’s corner. Well, he has you. If there’s anyone that can help him, it’s you. Yeah, yeah. I’m studying, dad. No, no, I am. Yeah, I have a great group of friends that I study with. Yes, mom told me how important this semester is. I know. Yes, I agree, it’s — it’S…
[ Sighs ] Look, I-I’m doing everything I’m supposed to be doing. No, I-I’m not doing — no, dad, I promise. I promise I’m not doing that anymore. Look, I-I’m fine. I’m fine, really. Yeah, but I’m just — I’m gonna tell you the truth. Are you capable of that? As it turns out, ava, yes, I am. Many years ago, cyrus showed up in pautuck. He — he — he set up an operation to import merchandise. He went into business with my family. He was a legit — he seemed like a legitimate businessman. He even gave mason a job. As the local kidnapper? As a distrib– well, okay, it’s just trucking, really. He was a trucker. And cyrus paid for my medical school. And that’s where things started to get a little dicey, because in cyrus’ mind, he was in business with my family and he foot the bill for my medical education. So he owned me. And so, when the opportunity came up for him to get an early release from pentonville, he wanted me to testify on his behalf. And you jumped at the chance, right? So your big boss could be free? Of course not, ava. I did…
[ Sighs ] He forced me to. I had to do what cyrus wanted me to do, because he got mason to kidnap you. So he knew I would do whatever he asked, because he knew that I care about you. My feelings for you were his leverage. And so, yeah, I told the judge what he wanted me to tell the judge, because the deal was that if I did that, then mason would let you go. Mason wasn’t supposed to try and kill you. Look [Sighs] Everything I did, I did because I wanted to save you. Please, ava, you — you really have to believe me. You know, sasha did great today, but she didn’t do it alone. And I doubt she would have done half as well without that hunky cowboy. Cody: The time that we spent hiding out at the cabin together, it changed the way that I think about you, sasha. I mean, obviously, I liked you before, ever since we shared biscotti at the quartermaines’.
[ Chuckles ] And I was furious about what gladys was doing to you. But at the cabin, I got to see what a strong and powerful, wonderful woman you are. And the time that we’ve been spending together is fun, but there’s more to that. Every time I see you, I just keep thinking, “when am I gonna get to see you again?” Just stop. Stop, please. You have to stop. Anna, I know if you had any idea that charlotte was in the apartment, you would not have pulled out your gun and shot a child. No, of course not. God, no. No. But I tell you, I was ready to shoot the person that I did think was inside there. Why were you so convinced that the person inside your apartment was a lethal threat? Evidence I found. Evidence that could be really damaging to someone high up in intelligence circles. This person does not want his past screw-ups to see the light of day. And I worked with him back in the wsb. And I documented everything, and I kept it. Where is this documented evidence? And do you still think he’s a threat? Overactive bladder? I’ve been there.I also used to plan my days around finding a bathroom, in fear of an embarrassing bladder accident. You’re not alone , and you don’t have to live like this. U know, I have been on with sasha three times now, and the difference between sasha alone and sasha with cody is night and day. Cody, everything you just said was so sweet and so reassuring, and I appreciate everything you’ve done for me so much. I know that I would still be at ferncliff if it wasn’t for you. But? But…I am still mourning liam and brando. I have rushed past my grief before, and I realize that was a mistake. And I can’t make that mistake again. I have to be a whole person again before I can be with someone else. I was deeply disappointed in myself for falling for your lies. And now I see that maybe you have fallen for them yourself. Do you really think that you did everything you could to save me, because you testified on behalf of cyrus? Did you ever think about maybe going to sonny? Maybe you could have even gone to the cops. You could have come clean, you could have told them that — that cyrus was running the show and — and mason was following his orders. Ava, no, I couldn’t do that. No, you could! You wouldn’t! You wouldn’T. You wouldn’t risk going against cyrus, because you cared far too much about saving your own skin than you did about saving me! He needs to stop blowing up my phone. Who? Adam? No. Spencer. Is it about trina? Yes. She won’t respond to any of his calls or texts, so now he’s asking me to mediate. But I don’t want to break trina’s confidence. I also don’t want to lie to him. I don’t think you should get in the middle of it. Well, I’ll try, but they’re both my friends. I mean, I care about them both. Just hate to see them like this.
[ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ] Freeze! Anna has made it clear she doesn’t want charlotte being investigated. Even though she possibly burned down her house, nothing justifies anna shooting her. No, there’s no justification for the shooting. It was a tragic accident. I know, but it’s all conflated for anna, right? And so she wants to protect charlotte and make sure no more harm can come to her. Which I don’t blame her for that. No, I-I-I agree.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Oh, it’s anna. Anna, hey, what’s going on? You alright? No. Can you meet me at maxie’s apartment? It’s important.
I have type 2 diabetes,
but I manage it well.
it’s a little pill
with a big story to tell.
I take once-daily
at each day’s staaart.
As time went on it
was easy to seee.
I’m lowering my a1c. Jardiance works 24/7 in your body to flush out some sugar! And for adults with type 2 diabetes and known heart disease, jardiance can lower the risk of cardiovascular death, too. Jardiance may cause serious side effects including ketoacidosis that may be fatal, dehydration, that can lead to sudden worsening of kidney function, and genital yeast or urinary tract infections. A rare, life-threatening bacterial infection in the skin of the perineum could occur. Stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of this infection, ketoacidosis, or an allergic reaction, and don’t take it if you’re on dialysis. Taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may causee retailers
or find other retailers
near you at abrysvo. Com. Me testifying on cyrus’ behalf was — was me trying to save you, ava. I-I was really just trying to help. Do you want to know who saved me? It wasn’t you. Josslyn jacks, dante falconeri, and sonny’s guy dex heller. They realized that I was missing when I didn’t pick up avery, and they tracked me down. If it had been left up to you, I would be dead at the bottom of a ravine! You are no hero. You are a skulking coward, following orders you knew were wrong, and all the while complaining that it wasn’t your fault. I did what cyrus asked me to do, ava, because I know firsthand what will happen if cyrus doesn’t get his way. I hate you. Yeah. I know. I’m sorry. I am. I’m — I’m truly sorry that I dragged you into all of this. I really care about you, ava. Oh, get out. Get out! Get out, get out, get out, get out!
[ Sighs ] Oh.
[ Sighs ] Sasha, just to clarify, is that a — a “no, never” or a “no for now”? It’s a “no for now.”
[ Chuckles ] But I don’t know how long “now” will last. And — and it’s not fair of me to ask you to wait for something that may never happen. You deserve better than that, cody. You’re not asking me to wait. I’m offering. Cody, no. My decision to make. I just made it. Look, if — if — if nothing ends up happening, that’s okay, too.
[ Sighs ] Sasha, I don’t consider myself a hopeful person. But you’ve given me hope that better things are coming for me. So, the next time that maxie calls me for a modeling gig, I won’t pick up the phone. Okay?
[ Chuckles ] Deception stands firmly behind the renewal of sasha’s contract. I have no doubt she can handle her spokesmodel duties solo. But you are right about one thing. And what’s that? Sasha and cody do make a great team, and deception has big plans for them. Mom! What’s wrong?
[ Sighs ] Come inside. I just came from molly and tj’S. Andrea, their surrogate, had a miscarriage. They lost their baby.
[ Sighing ] Oh. I’m so sorry. You haven’t put your tablet down since your mom left. Do you want to talk? I am deleting all evidence of websites where I looked for baby clothes, baby furniture, read about early childhood development. I want it gone. There’s no need to keep websites bookmarked for decorating a nursery. Moll, don’T. I got ahead of myself, tj, and I knew it, too. I should have just listened to my instincts, but I just — I got so excited, I couldn’t help but get caught up in the fantasy. Next time, I’m going to wait. I am not going to look at one website, order one stick of furniture, or so much as a onesie until the baby is born and in my arms. Well, if there is a next time, it will be without andrea. Are you blaming andrea for the miscarriage? Of course I’m not, no. I know it wasn’t her fault. But I saw her. She was devastated to lose our baby. And she told me that she — she can’t go through this again. So if we want to have a child, we’ll have to look for another surrogate. Yeah, brick, I need you to do a deep dive into this guy named jamison forsyth. He worked for the wsb years ago with anna devane. Hey. Oh, hi. Thank you so much for coming. What have you got here? Okay, so, all of this are reports and documents from my early days at the wsb. As you can see, I recorded everything. Uh, including incriminating information on a man that was pretty high up at the bureau. He ran the intelligence circle. So I, uh, made this initial discovery on halloween. I found an incriminating memo, and then an entry in one of my personal notebooks that backed up this memo, so I wanted robert to see it, and I took them over to show him. And then I thought, well, I should come back and see if there are any additional documents — documents that I knew were in this trunk when I went to robert. Obviously, I — I couldn’t look through it that night because of, um, charlotte. So, uh, I-I came back right now, and I thought I’d have a look through any of these reports, and…
[ Sighs ] And — and now they’re — they’re gone? Yeah. All the documents I took over to show robert and anything else that I might have had on this man is gone.
On the next “General Hospital” —
