Another dead end. All the safe houses are empty. Not that we should be surprised. It would be unlike jason to allow himself to be found. He’s in trouble, spinelli. That much is clear from the footage. So, think. You know jason better than anyone else.

[ Engine sputters ] Um, where — where would he hide out?

[ Engine sputtering ] Maxie? Uh-oh. Not only do you let me hide out in here, but you bring me provisions? Best son ever. The doughnut is from an actual bakery, by the way. A gift from a patient who was discharged earlier. Mm. So, you’re saying it’s edible? The coffee, on the other hand, is G.H.’S finest. Ah. I’ll proceed with caution. Smart move. So, why are you, anyway, hiding out? You know you can wait in the icu with everyone else. I know, but I want to give dante’s family some space. I don’t suppose you’ve heard any updates? Not in the last 20 minutes. God. They must all be going out of their minds. That’s exactly what I’m worried about.

[ Knock on door ] Hey, jake. Hi, finn. My mom’s not home yet. Oh. Her shift was supposed to have ended a little while ago. She texted. She’s running late. Ah. Must be some unforeseen hospital business. Um, it’s — it’s cool if you want to come in and — and wait. Yeah? You sure? Yeah. Ah. Thanks. How’s, uh — how’s school going? Uh, pretty good. Really? Yeah. Is this yours? Thank you so much. Good night. Danny! Hey. It’s pretty late to be out. What are you doing here? Sasha. What are you —

[ Exhales heavily ] I was so worried about you. Until 10 minutes ago, I thought jason was dead. How the hell do you have a warrant to search my house? We petitioned a federal judge. Based on your long association with the fugitive in question, we had reason to believe that jason would come here. And we had reason to believe that you would aid and abet him. Okay, well, you can show your warrant to my lawyer when she gets here. Until then, wait outside.

Oh, good. You found my game piece. It’s not a game piece. It’s from a vape pen. But you know that already. I swear it’s not what it looks like. Okay.

[ Sighs ] It’s — it’s not mine. Alright. Whose is it? Someone from school. And you have it because…? Because… I was — I was freaked out, you know? I mean, I took it from this person who was using it a lot, and, you know, I know it’s not — it’s not good for him. Right, jake. You know, we’re still learning about all the negative long-term effects. You know, vapes were originally designed to help people stop smoking, but now they’re being marketed to kids, and they’re highly addictive. How’d your friend react when you took it from him? He was not happy. Yeah, I bet. What makes you think he’s a friend? Well, if you didn’t care, you wouldn’t be worried, right? You must be really worried about dante. Me and scout and rocco are staying at the quartermaines’ so my mom could be with dante. Scout and rocco are asleep, so I snuck out and caught a ride share. I just wanted to check on dante. I totally get where you’re coming from. And your mom is doing the best she can in an extremely difficult situation. So let’s go talk to her, okay? She’ll be mad. No, she won’T. Trust me. Dante’s family is an agony waiting for him to wake up. And I’m worried, too. I like dante a lot. He’s a really decent guy, and I hate that this happened to him. That all goes without saying. I just wish… what is it, tj? Dante is kristina’s brother

and brother-in-law. He is an important to her on multiple levels, so of course she came to the hospital to see if he’s okay and to be with the family. Okay, you need to stop qualifying and tell me what’s going on. Judgment-free zone. Remember? What I’m about to say, you cannot repeat to molly. I won’T. Kristina’s our surrogate and egg donor. And on one hand, that is awesome. Molly’s gonna have a biological tie to our child, another davis boy or girl in the making. But on the other hand? It’s not clean, like getting the donor egg from someone you’ll never know or you’ll never meet. This is really, really close to home. Alright, but there’s something else. I can tell. Guess who else our child is going to be biologically tied to. Sonny corinthos. I’ve been trying to reach you ever since I heard about dante. I’ve been calling, texting. I even left a voicemail. That’s major. Right. Well, I-I mean, I’m sorry I didn’t call you back. My phone must have been on “do not disturb” or something — no. Don’t apologize. Don’t apologize. No, it’s — I’m just concerned. One of your oldest friends is in the hospital. Yeah. Yeah, sasha. He might not make it. Oh, cody. Why did you not call me? You knew I would have been here in a heartbeat. Yeah, that’s — I mean, that’s why I didn’T. He’s still unconscious. But stable? For now. I’ll take stable. Stable’s good. Danny, what are you doing here? Does drew known you’re here? I came by myself. You — does he know that you left? So you snuck out again. Sam. He’s worried about dante. Nobody’s telling us anything. I wanted to see how he’s doing. Thank you. Yeah. Of course. And know that dante’s in my prayers. We appreciate that. Good night, elizabeth. Good night. I am sorry you feel out of the loop. It’s just that we really don’t know anything right now. I’m touched that you came. I know dante will be touched that you came. But if you go home and just wait, come back tomorrow, you can sit with him then. Sonny: You know what? I’m gonna arrange for a car — no. I’m not leaving. Danny. I’m sorry. No, thank you. So, you want to stay here? Yes. So would it be alright if danny stayed with me here? And I will take him home. ‘Cause I could use the company. I don’t think you understand how a warrant works — okay, look, it’s obvious that jason is here. It’s equally obvious that you would swallow ground glass in order to give him a five-minute head start. So, you either get out of our way or you get arrested. It’s your choice at this point. Search. You’re not gonna find jason because he was never here. Alright, thanks for your cooperation. Don’t — stay here, out of the way. God. I’ll take the stairs. Just keep out of our way.

I don’t want my friend to get in any trouble, but I don’t know how else to make him stop. That’s a tough situation to be in.

[ Sighs ] God. Maybe taking the vape was stupid. How so? ‘Cause now he’s mad at me and you know he’s just gonna get his hands on another one. Hey, look, jake, you can’t change someone else’s behavior, right? I think all you can do and what it seems like you’ve done already is you can tell your friend you don’t like this thing, alright? And you’re concerned about him when he uses it. Not that he cared… yeah, you know, it may seem that way. And maybe — maybe it’s true. Maybe he doesn’t care. But I guarantee he’s gonna remember what you said to him. Alright? And who knows what happens in time?

[ Sighs ] Listen, if you ever want to talk about this some more, I’m — I’m around. You’re gonna tell mom, aren’t you?

[ Chuckles ] Well, I think your mom probably needs to know, but I think it’d probably be better coming from you.

[ Door opens ] Hi. I’m home. Hi. I’m sorry I’m late, you guys. I was really rushing to get out of there and then we ended up having this minor issue and I’m just —

[ Sighs ] Is everything okay? You, uh, didn’t want me to come. What? No. No. No, of course I wanted you to come. It’s just, you know, we — we just started talking about… hanging out on purpose and — right. Yeah. I — I kind of thought that maybe it would be, you know, coffee or… a movie or a dinner, if I was lucky, not, you know, hanging out, spending the night in the hospital in plastic chairs with fluorescent lighting. I happen to love fluorescent lighting. Right. Sure. I am really looking forward to whatever comes next. But today we are friends and I care about you. Back at you. And that means that whenever you need me, I am always gonna be there. Got it? Yeah. So, next time things hit the fan, who are you gonna call? Ghostbusters. That was a dumb joke. Sorry. I apologize for that. Uh, no, I’ll call you. Thanks a lot, sasha, for coming. Always. Tj: In one night, sonny was the target of an ambush. Apparently, there’s a hole in his coat where the bullet almost hit him, and dante was shot twice and is fighting for his life. And a few weeks ago, sonny was shot at in puerto rico, which kristina told molly in confidence. Maybe I’m not supposed to know, so please don’t — don’t say anything. Understood. My point is, this is exactly what I feared. Have you told molly any of this? That I’m afraid of her sister being our egg donor because her family is a dysfunctional mess and frequently in physical danger? Well, maybe not in those exact words. Mom, what am i supposed to say? I agreed to it. Molly knew you had reservations at the beginning. Sure. So did she. It took a lot of soul searching for us to get to a place to where we chose kristina, but we did choose her. And once we did, molly was all-in. But you don’t feel the same way. I’m trying. But I look at dante in that hospital bed, and I’m like, “is this our life now?” Our child is born, someone else gets shot at, and we’re just — we’re — we’re holding our breath until they pull through. I don’t want that. I don’t want that for myself. I don’t want that for my child. Is that so selfish? No. No, tj, it’s human. If I stay, I could at least tell rocco I was here for a little while. I think it might make him feel better. Okay, I’m gonna call drew and — and let him know that you’re here. I’ll handle that. You just stay close to dante. How would you like a snack from the vending machine? Sure. Huh? Thanks, mom. Alexis: You’re welcome, honey. Sonny, I am — I am really sorry he spoke to you like that. No, you don’t have to apologize. Everybody’s on edge. I know what that’s about. You want to sit down? Yeah. You know, I keep thinking, “why?” Why did dante have to go after that guy? Because it’s his job. Yeah, but can’t he do his job and play it safe at the same time? And risk letting something happen to you? No. Dante would never. It’s just not who he is. I just feel like, for just tonight, I wish that wasn’t true.

[ Groans ] You know, I used to make that same wish. Not anymore? No. I’ve come to a place of peace and acceptance where dante’s job is concerned. But there will be no peace and acceptance for the person who did this to him. And I need you to make sure of that. The police commissioner are here, and so are the fbi. They have a warrant, and they’re searching the house for jason. They’re telling me he’s alive, and I don’t know how to fight them, diane. So I need you to call me back as soon as possible and find a way to stop them. No sign of him. You? Nothing. Doesn’t mean anything, though, because jason knows this house as if it was his own. He put in the security system. He could easily get in and out without a trace, especially with carly helping him, which clearly she is. So we missed him here. Where would he go next? Carly? Carly. Where are your cars? Am I required to answer that? Is that part of the warrant? Alright, you know what? We can take you down the station, and your attorney and the ada — they can figure it all out. Or you could just answer me! I have — I have two cars, and they’re both in the garage, an suv and a convertible. And there’s a space there for josslyn’s car, but she has it at school. I don’t have a gardener’s truck or anything like that that I could have given jason because he wasn’t here. Alright, alright.

[ Chuckles ] Alright, so we can assume that he’s on foot and he’s injured. Wait. Jason’s hurt? I thought you didn’t believe he was alive. What happened to jason? We believe he attempted to murder your ex-husband, sonny corinthos. He fled the scene, pursued by police, and shot detective dante falconeri twice in the chest. That’s insane. Murder sonny? Jason would never shoot dante. You know this, anna! Well, the evidence suggests otherwise. We’re out on shoreline. Where would he go from here? I think I know one place. Come on. I’ll tell you on the way.

I know more than anyone how you’re feeling. We just can’t jump to conclusions. What other conclusion is there? Dante was shot. And he might not make it. Don’t say that, sam. No, it’s the truth, sonny. I may look all calm and collected right now, but I am losing my mind waiting for your son to wake up. And I couldn’t say this in front of my mom or my son, but I need to know that there will be payback that this monster won’t get away with what he did. Do you understand what I’m asking you to do? Yeah, I understand. Thank you. I’m gonna go sit with dante. You need company? No, I think I need a minute alone. Okay. I’m here if you need me.

[ Sighs ] Go ahead. Finn found this. Hear him out. Does this belong to you? I took it from a friend because I was worried. And you kept it? I was going to throw it away, but then I got scared that, you know, you’d see it and think it was mine, so…

[ Sighs ] Okay. I trust you. I’m sorry you’re worried about your friend. Sounds like he’s lucky to have you. I, uh — I talked to finn about it a little, and he gave me some good advice. Oh. Well, then I guess we’re lucky to have you.

[ Chuckles ] I — I hate that we’re seeing more and more kids with these things. This is a much bigger conversation. Can we revisit this in the morning? Okay. Okay. Hey, uh… thanks, man. Yeah. I’ll see you around, jake. Oh, my god. I’m so relieved it’s not his. That was some serious composure right there. Wow! On the outside. Only on the outside. Inside I was panicking. But then you seemed so calm.

[ Stammers ] That’s ’cause I’m not the parent. Which begs the question — did I just overstep with your son? When you say you’re out of gas… my tank is on E. Right now? Mm-hmm. In the precise moment that we need the car to move? Yes. So, in essence, the worst possible time? Excuse me. How am I supposed to know sonny’s safe houses are so far apart? Yeah, fair enough, but in terms of your fuel level, did you not notice it was running low? They always say there’s more gas in there than you think there is. Who’s “they”?! A lot has been going on. I have been very distracted. I should have paid more attention. No, it’s — it’s okay. No, no, it’s not. I let you down. No, you could never. Maybe there’s a gas station around here somewhere. Unfortunately, there’s nothing for miles. Maybe that’s why jason likes hiding out around here. You know, if I could just understand what the footage meant. What was jason trying to accomplish? The police are gonna figure it out. But the police aren’t interested in those questions. As far as they’re concerned, he’s just a suspect on the run. And if they find him… they’ll treat him as such. Why’d you want to meet me up here?

[ Sighs ] ‘Cause something happened and I wanted to be alone when I told you. You saw jason, didn’t you? He was in my house. Is he still there? No. The police showed up. How did you know he was alive? I saw footage of jason on the roof of selina wu’s warehouse. Him and some other guy were trying to kill me. Federal agents. Hands where I can see them.

No, you didn’t overstep. Are you sure? You’re really sure? I’m grateful jake feels like he can talk to you. Well, to be fair, I did catch him red-handed. It’s not like he sought me out. Yeah, but when you confronted him, he actually stayed,

and he admitted to you giving him good advice. Oh, I guess that’s high praise from a teenager. The highest.

[ Chuckles ] He’s warming up to you in a way he didn’t before. And I don’t know if it’s because he’s more mature or he sees how happy we are. But I really like that he’s inching his way closer to you. I like it, too. So, what about me? What about you? Well, if there was an issue with violet, would you mind me stepping in, not just as her aunt, but as A… parent? Parent-adjacent, let’s call it. Okay. Okay. Um… well, now, you already have three kids of your own. Are you sure you even want that responsibility? I love her. For more than a million reasons. Plus, she brings a little girl energy into my life. Girl energy. Violet is nothing if not that. Our families are meshing, finn. Mm. In a very fun and healthy way. Cam did add me to his premier league group chat. See?

[ Laughs ] And, uh… well, aiden did say he was happy to offer me any baking advice as long as I returned the favor. What does aiden need advice on? Ah, somebody he likes. Their name is tobias. All the things you pointed out were true, but there are other truths, too, really wonderful, beautiful ones. Kristina is having your baby. Yeah. They’re both healthy. The pregnancy is going well, right? The baby’s developing beautifully. A gift kristina is giving to you out of love for her sister. And, I mean, come on. Who’s more motivated than her to make sure everything works out okay? I hate hospitals. Me too. I hate waiting even more, but unfortunately that’s what we’re gonna have to endure. Beats being at home. This way, if something happens, we’re close. Wait. That sounds dumb, doesn’t it? Why? It’s not like there’s anything we can do to help him. You know what? A long time ago, I was in the exact same circumstance you’re in right now. Your mom was hurt and I was desperate to do something to try to fix it and all I could do was wait for the doctors to fix it. And they did. And they did. And I think that’s what’s gonna happen for dante. Why aren’t you waiting with dante’s family? ‘Cause I’m not family. I don’t want to intrude. Do they even know you’re here? I don’T… cody! You are dante’s oldest friend. I am sure they would welcome your support. They — they have each other. And who do you have? Well, you know, that’s — that’s just it, sash. Like, pretty much most of my life, it’s just been me, so I’ve gotten good at taking care of myself. So that’s just the way it is, huh? Pretty much. Well, I think it’s about time that you learned a new way. You know jason wasn’t trying to shoot you. No, I don’t know, carly. What are you talking about? This is jason! He’s risked his life for you so many times. Why would he try and kill you? I don’t know. I don’t know where he’s been the last two and a half years. I don’t know why he showed up tonight. All I know is he was on a roof with a guy trying to kill me. And I also know that when he left the roof, dante went after him. Don’t do anything stupid. Anna: Jason! Jason — oh, god. I don’t know what’s going on, but you can’t keep running. Just let me take you into custody, and then we can sort this all out. Please. Come on. No! Jason!

[ Water splashes ] Jason! He’s gone. Son of a bitch!

Aiden told you about tobias? Yeah. Came up when he was helping me with one of my burnt brownie situations. Wait. Please tell me you knew because aiden already told you. Yes. Yeah. No, no. Yeah. Yes. Oh, my… he confided in me over christmas. Whew. But he said he wasn’t ready yet to tell anyone else. Oh, well, I guess he is now. Or ready to tell me, at least. Brownie bonding’s a real thing. Yeah, apparently.

[ Both chuckle ] Anyway, no big deal, right? What, that aiden’s gay? No. But the fact that he felt comfortable enough to tell you… I think my heart just exploded. Well, we can’t have that. That heart’s very important to me. I think what it all boils down to — do you trust kristina to do what’s in the baby’s best interest? Yes. Then, in my opinion, the good outweighs the bad. You can’t control everything. Why not? Wouldn’t it be nice if we could?

[ Sighs ] All you can do is hope and believe that the outcome will be positive. Otherwise, you’ll be paralyzed. That’s exactly how I feel when the anxiety creeps in. It’s like I’m frozen. Yeah. And I don’t blame you one bit. You’re still dealing with the trauma of the last surrogate’s miscarriage. This is scary. And things don’t always go as planned. I really need this to go as planned. I know. In a perfect world, every pregnant woman would be sitting in a garden with their feet up, surrounded by beauty and calm, ingesting the perfect combination of nutrients. Exactly. But that’s not reality for most people. It certainly wasn’t for me. And guess what. I survived. And so did you. We did, didn’t we? All by way of saying, the odds are actually in your favor. Are you having second thoughts? About what? Letting jason go to jail instead of me. No. It’s okay if you are. No, maxie, I would do anything for you. You know that. And being here with you right now is the only place I want to be. Stranded in the middle of nowhere with an empty gas tank. Yes. So, no, I don’t have any second thoughts. But that doesn’t mean I don’t feel guilty. The fbi now knows who they’re looking for, and that is “on me,” as they say. No, spinelli, you were backed into a corner. You know I love him, but jason is the one who decided to let his face be seen. So whatever happens next, it’s on him, not on you. Whatever happens next. Any guesses what that’s gonna be? Well, I do know that jason won’t give up without a fight. So neither will we. Would it horrify you if I said that I thought we were a little bit alike? Why would that horrify me? Because I’m comparing a teenage boy to his grandma. You’re the coolest grandma I know. Aww! You know, I think that when you and I see an injustice, we want to do what we can to make it right. Right? That’s why I think you should go back to the quartermaines’ — because scout is a night owl and she’s gonna need you when she wakes up. And that’s a good thing that you can do tonight. It may not make it right, but it’ll make it better. Yeah. Let’s go. Jason didn’t shoot dante. Did he tell you that? No. No, we — we didn’t talk about dante. We didn’t have time to talk about much at all. What’d he say? He said my name. I walked in the house and I was going up the stairs and he said my name. And I turned around and he was standing there and I thought I was hallucinating, but I wasn’T. He was right there. What happened next?

[ Scoffs ] I hugged him, sonny. I realized he was shot, and I went to get him a first aid kit. Did he tell you who shot him? No. Okay. It could have been dante shot jason by mistake, not knowing it was jason, and jason shot back at him, shooting to kill. You don’t know that any of that’s true! No, what i do know is that my son is in a hospital bed with two bullets in his chest. And jason is an expert shot who never misses.

[ Sighs ] I want search teams, both sides of the river, from here to the lake. You find him and you bring him back. Go. Thank you. Why come here? Oh, jason built this bridge. What? Yeah. Don’t you remember? This used to be an ornamental bridge, like the pont neuf in paris. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Kids used to dare each other to come out here. You know, after stone died, jason and robin, they became close, and they used to meet out here. Robin told me that. Anyway, the bridge was unsafe, and eventually the city tore it down. I guess maybe 10, 15 years ago, jason donated money and they rebuilt it on the same spot. Seems like an odd time to check out his public works project. Well, having spent a lot of time out here, I’m assuming that there is a structure, somewhere where he could hide and regroup that’s nearby, and that’s why he headed here. Well, now he’s in the river.

[ Sighs ] And probably dead.

[ Sighs ] I should get going. No. Stay. Early morning surgery. Mnh. Right.

[ Sighs ] Well, thank you for coming over. And I’m sorry I was late. I’m not. Oh, thanks. No, no, not because I didn’t get to spend more time with you, but because I got to spend some time with jake. He’s a — he’s a really good kid. I know he is. You know, you have a lot to do with that.

[ Chuckles ] This parenthood thing — it is not for the faint of heart. We’re doing okay, aren’t we? It’s a lot easier now that I have you.

[ Sighs ] Goodnight, elizabeth. Night.

[ Door closes ] If I haven’t said so, I really appreciate your willingness to work with me, despite my subterfuge vis–vis moving in with you. You don’t have to keep bringing that up, you know. Yes, I was hurt and angry that you lied, but your heart was in the right place. With you. My heart is and always has been with you. Why are you the sweetest? I don’t know.

[ Laughs ] So, all’s well that ends well? Yeah. So, when can you move out? I don’t care how uncomfortable it makes you. A lot of people in this town care about you. I’m one of them. Noted. So no toughing it out alone, okay? If you insist. I do. Okay. Uh, should I get us some coffee? It’s probably gonna be a long night. Yeah. Uh, cream, no sugar. No sugar. Yeah. You know my coffee order? I pay attention. You are kind, compassionate, incredibly gifted. I tell anyone who will listen about my son the doctor. I love you, tj. I love you, too. And I cannot wait to meet my grandchild and see what kind of dad you’re gonna be. Let’S… let’s hope a good one? I have no doubt.

[ Door closes ]

[ Monitor beeping ] Hey. I didn’t mean to pull you away from dante, but there’s something you should know. What’s up? We were able to get an id of the guy on the roof. You mean someone who was involved with dante’s shooting? Who? It’s jason. He’s alive. Oh, jason. Wherever you are, please be okay. Isn’t that one of the first rules of police work? Never assume anything? You think jason survived the fall? I think that’s why he jumped. He thought he could survive the fall. He’d rather take his chances with the river than be taken into custody. Makes sense.

If he put two bullets into dante falconeri, better to jump than be charged with killing a cop.
