[ Medical devices beep ] I th, I would see that this whole thing was just a horrible dream, something that we’d wake up from. But dante, you’re really here. And you’re not awake. And no matter where I look, someone or something is telling me that jason’s alive, and he could have done this to you. Sam? Hi. Laura, hi. Has there been any change? Dante’s the same, but the rest of my world is in pieces. No problem, dr. Robinson. Happy to do a consult for you. Who’s the patient? Oh, boy. You’re a nurse. Aren’t you supposed to do more than just stand there and watch me suffer? I’ve already taken your vitals. We’re just waiting for the doctor. Well, why don’t you write this in your notes — next time you touch a patient, wear mittens. Your hands are freezing. I’ll do that. Dr. Finn! Oh, it is so nice to see a friendly face. About the only warm thing in this place. My being here is not good news, heather. For you, you mean? For you. I wish there was something we could do for sam. She seemed beyond exhausted and so shaky. Seeing my big sister like that made me shaky. She’s always been a rock. She’s still holding up better than i would be. Could you imagine, your ex-husband comes back from the dead and could be the reason why your live-in boyfriend is fighting for his life in the icu? I’d be curled up in a ball somewhere. All we can do is support her — starting with getting her some breakfast. She’s got to keep her strength up. Your maternal instincts already kicking in. You’re gonna be such a good mom. This baby is lucky to have you. Blaze, hi. I didn’t know you were coming. My girlfriend needs me. Where else would I be?

[ Knock on door ]

[ Exhales deeply ] Hey. You didn’t have to knock. I wasn’t sure. I didn’t want to interrupt, in case my brother was here.

[ Groans ] Ahh…

[ Exhales sharply ]

Dr. Robinson asked me to consult because you’re presenting with a difficult case. We’ve taken a look at your test results and determined you have cardiomyopathy, which means you have a weakened heart muscle. Wow. No one’s ever accused me of having a weak heart before. It’s not really an accusation. It’s more of a fact, and it’s the reason why you fainted. Oh, that’s why you put me on those pills? Mm-hmm. Unfortunately, you’re not responding to the medication. I’m sorry, but I can’t possibly concentrate on your beautiful voice when I’m in agonizing pain. Could you possibly, you know, move this pillow since I obviously can’t? Yeah. Oh. Thank you. Now, I’m not a doctor, but I have learned the ins and outs of the medical profession by binge watching “grey’s anatomy.” And I’ve also had quite an education from being in and out over the years in various mental facilities. So I feel qualified to ask, why is the infectious disease department’s very own dr. Dashing checking out my ticker? Well, the two cardiologists that examined you before me, they came back with nothing. Dr. Robinson asked me to rule out everything else. And to that end, have you ever experienced any problems breathing in the past? Could you please, higher with the pillow already? No, no. To the left, baby. No, the other left. How many lefts do you have? Doctor, could you possibly get nurse elizabeth in here? I mean, she and i really understand each other, and I’m not vibing with this one at all. No offense. You know, I’m sure there’s a few people that really like you in this place. Heather, heather, could you please focus for a moment? This is actually important. Your symptoms are important. I wish I could, but I’m afraid I’m too distraught. I mean, my complete devastation is swallowing my every thought. In fact, maybe you can help me, and that way, I could help you. With what?

[ Voice breaking ] I really need to see my grandbaby. I’m gonna go see if I can track down tj and say hi. Okay. Bye. How are you holding up, really? How’s your brother? Dante is, uh… he’s out of surgery, but he’s still in critical. And, um, my family is just hoping that he wakes up soon and that he’s okay. Oh, thank god. Yeah, yeah, it’s a huge relief. Listen, um, my whole family’s here, so don’t feel like you have to stay. You’re disappointed. I’m sorry. No, that’s not it. I just know how busy you are, and I don’t want to be an inconvenience. My girlfriend is never an inconvenience — never, and not a minute goes by that I don’t wish I was with you. “Girlfriend.” ![ Chuckles ] It seems like that word’s getting much easier for you to say. I can’t believe how lucky I am that I get to say it. I’m lucky to hear it. Oh, believe me, if it were anything else, I would reschedule my morning to be with you. So what is it about this morning that’s so special? My mother. Jason’s not here. But he was last night. Yes. The invader article said that the police were concentrating their search on the shoreline area. Not coincidentally, you live on shoreline road, so… but even without that, I knew jason would come straight to you. Last night, at the quartermaines’, when you came to help with the kids, was… was he already here? Was he hiding out? No. No. Okay. Well, thank you for that. Because that was good last night, like you really helped out with the kids, and I just felt like we were in it together. I would have hated — I would have hated knowing that that was a lie. I — I didn’t lie to you. But you didn’t call me, either.

[ Groans ] Ahh. Dad?

Laura brought little ace in last night. He’s sick. Even if your grandson was admitted, there’s no way I could just take you to see another patient, especially a minor. But my baby’s baby was brought to this hospital. He didn’t come here on a tour, so obviously, there’s something wrong with him, and I’m just worried sick about what it could be. Please. There must be something that you could do, doc. I’m asking you as a grandmother. I’ll tell you what, how about you cooperate with me, and I’ll see what I can find out for you. Oh. Alright. Um, so other than the awful, awful pain in my hip, um, I’ve been bloated for a couple of months, which, you know, kind of strange. Shouldn’t you be writing this down, ice paws?

[ Scoffs ] I’ll take it from here, nurse driscoll. Good luck. Thanks. My mom called me this morning and asked if I was free so we could get together for breakfast. Given the way she and I left things, I felt like I had to say yes. You don’t have to explain yourself to me. It’s perfectly reasonable you would want to see your mom. Just curious though. How did she sound? I’m not sure. Contrite, maybe. But our conversation was really short, so it’s hard to know for sure. Wow. Well, maybe she’s had some time to process, and maybe she’s ready to hear you out now. Hey, that’d be nice, but I’m not holding my breath. Well, if you need backup, I’m happy to go with you. Even after the way she treated you? I can only imagine how overwhelmed you must be by this whole situation. It’s got to be hard for you, too. I mean, you were dante’s mother-in-law. Yeah. I do know what a truly wonderful human being he is. I hope you know that you can talk to me. I just — I don’t know what to say exactly. It’s — it’s like I have all these thoughts roaming around in my head and I just can’t put words to them. I don’t know. These thoughts are swirling around in my head and — and I just can’t grab on to one thought or feeling for more than a second. Yeah, that sounds about right. I just don’t know what to do. Honey, it’s gonna take some time, and a little bit of rest will help a lot. It’s like one second, I’m really hurt because jason could be out there, a fugitive, and then the next second, I feel like I get all weepy because I’m so grateful that he’s alive. And then I have this voice in my head and it keeps asking me, like, where has he been all this time? Why didn’t he try to contact me? I don’t know. It’s very, very complicated. Yeah, but it shouldn’t be complicated, should it? Jason and I were long over before he disappeared. Yes, but that doesn’t change the fact that he was a very significant part of your life. You loved him. You had a child with him. You know, you share all of those experiences. But, honey, you can’t expect yourself to see things clearly right now, when you’re still in shock — and I think you are. Yeah. Wow. I mean, I feel like I have to keep it together, if only for my kids. I had to ask the quartermaines to keep scout home from school, and I’m sure danny has read the article in the invader. By now, he thinks his father is the one who shot dante. How am I supposed to help danny process this if I can’t even process it myself? I wish I had better answers for you, but I do know this. If you allow your love for your children to ground you and to guide you, everything else just has a way of working itself out. Thank you for saying that, and thank you for being here. Danny, wait. I know I have no right to ask you, but… I’m in trouble. I need your help. Why should I help you? And don’t say because you’re my father. Because the police are after me, and I didn’t do what they said I did. You didn’t shoot dante? No. Swear on it. Swear on something that matters to you. I swear on your life.

I appreciate it. Really, I do, but right now, you need to be with your family. I can deal with my own. You sure? I’ll be fine. Just knowing I have you will get me through whatever it is my mom has to say. Okay, well, I’ll be here when you get back. I’m counting on it. Bye. Bye. So the last, uh, last few months, you said you had ringing in the ears, mm-hmm. Some tingling in your extremities, and brittle nails? Right, which is strange, because I used to have really strong nails. I’m not saying I had a future as a hand model or anything like that, but do you think maybe that has something to do with my heart? I think I need to run some further tests, heather. Okay, you can poke, prod, draw all the blood you want, but after you find out what’s going on with my grandson. That won’t be necessary.

[ Scoffs ] With all due respect, your mayorship, the good doctor and I have a relationship that is working just fine without you. Hi, finn. Hi. Would you mind giving me a moment alone with heather? We’re long overdue for a talk. Of course. Look, the only person I called last night was diane, and that’s because anna devane showed up with agent cates, and they told me that jason was alive and they had a warrant, and they wanted to search my house. And so that’s the first that you heard of jason? No. No, when i when I got back here after I left the quartermaines’, he was waiting for me. I walked in the house and he said my name, and I recognized his voice, and I turned around. He was standing right there. And, I mean — all I could do was hug him. And then I realized he had been shot, so I ran upstairs and I grabbed a first aid kit and I came down. I was trying to bandage him up, and that’s when anna started banging on the door. He didn’t even know my mom had died. So you told them — told them about bobbie? I was just doing such a bad job at cleaning the wound, I just mentioned how I wished I could call my mom and ask for help, and he said not to. And that’s when I realized he didn’t know. And then when I told him, I could see it hit his face, and I went to tell him what happened, but that’s when anna and john showed up, so… did he tell you how he got shot? No. No, we didn’t talk about it. Because the police think that he shot dante. The police are wrong. Well, how do you know that if you didn’t even talk about it? Because I know jason. Yeah. That’s what I thought you were gonna say. Are you okay? Just a little dizzy. I’m gonna sit over here. What do you need me to do for you? Can you bring me a first aid kit from the house? You were shot, right? Yeah. Well, then, wouldn’t you need more than a first aid kit? Should I go grab grandma’s medical bag? Is monica up there at the house? I don’t know. She might have gone to the hospital. Uh, no. No, don’t — don’t get the medical bag. It’s gonna draw too much attention. Just get a first aid kit from the kitchen or the bathroom and just — just bring it down here. Sure. I’ll be right back. Danny? Close the door.

Were you upset blaze couldn’t stay? No, it was, you know — I mean, it was a little surprised at first, but she explained it, and it’s fine. It’s not a big deal. Are you sure? Because you went from elated to deflated in like, three seconds. What? I’m your sister. It’s hard to miss. She went to see her mother, and that’s bad? Well, it’s not exactly bad, but her mom’s not my biggest fan. Okay, well, that’s ridiculous. Anybody who spends five seconds with you loves you. Well, not her mother. Not since she found me in her daughter’s bed. Hi, my love. Good morning. Ohh. So what’s good here? Oh, well, they’re known for their blts and their burgers. Uh, seems a little bit early for a burger, but, um, I don’t know. A blt might be too salty. Well, let’s see. That’s it? You wanted to get together to discuss the menu? No, just — if we’re gonna end up having something to eat, we should probably look at it, right? This is a port charles institution. Everything on the menu is good, really good. So there, we’ve covered the menu. Why are you acting like this? I’m not acting like anything. You’re the one pretending that everything is the same as always, and it’s not. We need to talk. I know, and I have been doing some thinking. And I know things have changed. There’s something that I want to say to you. Please, laura, don’t keep me in suspense. It’s not good for my weakened heart muscle. Is ace alright? Yes, ace — ace has an ear infection, but other than that, he’s going to be perfectly fine. Fine for a child whose mother’s dead, you mean? Heather, we all agree — no, we don’t all anything, laura. My daughter is gone, and you’re telling me that her child, my grandson, is fine? Just how fine can he be? Especially with you having cyrus renault and ryan’s twin in his life. Laura, you’re a mother. How could you not know how critical these early years are to a child’s development? I am well aware of that. And you think exposing him to the dregs of his gene pool is a way to a happy and healthy childhood? Good lord, laura. I might as well have him with me in pentonville. Actually, a better caliber of people. That’s actually why I came here — to discuss this with you. You mean keeping ace with me? No, heather. That will never happen. I assumed that you actually came here to apologize for clocking me over the head, but you’re taking your sweet time getting around to that, so that’s probably not the reason for your little drop-in. Don’t worry about it, laura. You don’t need to apologize. I’m fine. I came to discuss pentonville with you. Uh-huh. Heather, you are soon to be someone else’s problem. I had a conversation with robert. Scorpio? Uh-huh. Mm-hmm. And how is our dear little da? Good. And he agrees with me that given your history of escaping and assaulting, we no longer feel that pentonville is an appropriate place for you. What, you’re sending me back to d’archam? No. San quentin women’s federal penitentiary. Hey, sam. Is everything okay with dante? He’s in critical but stable condition. Oh, okay. I just saw you sitting out here instead of in there with him. I just, I thought that — doesn’t matter. Um, how are you? I’m not entirely sure. Because of jason? Amongst other things, but it’s a lot, and it’s nothing I was prepared for. Yeah. None of us were. And add to that, worrying about dante. Yeah. It’s kind of why I came out here. I needed a couple of minutes just to clear my head. Right. I came and I took those away from you. Um, I’ll go grab a coffee. I’ll leave you to — hey. No, no, no. Michael, don’t go. Stay. Please, stay here. Come on. Welcome to my world. There’s always room for one more. Jason would never shoot dante. So the police said that, um, dante was in pursuit of two suspects. What if — what if jason shot at the man that was chasing him without realizing that it was dante? No, no, no. There were two suspects, like you just said, so obviously, the other guy shot dante. That’s only obvious to you, carly. I’m — like, you can’t even allow for the possibility that maybe jason made a mistake, let alone the fact that maybe he shot dante — why are you doing this? Why are you so convinced that jason’s guilty? I’m not convinced. I don’t know if jason shot dante, and the truth is, neither do you. You don’t have any evidence. You don’t even have jason’s account on what happened that night. Carly, all you have is how you feel for him, and that’s enough for you. It’s the two of you, jason and carly. You come first with each other. You always have and you always will.

San quentin, california? It’s our professional opinion that that is the best placement for you. Please, please do not do this to me. I had no choice. You gave me no choice. You have proven time and again that you are a danger to this community. As a matter of public safety, I have to put as much space between you and port charles as possible to make it highly unlikely that you will ever come back again. You’re letting cyrus’ whispers get into your head. I know you, laura! Come on, you are better than this. We used to be friends. I know, heather, I remember. That’s what makes this so hard. Honestly, I’ve been struggling to try to understand — try to understand what happened to you. You know, when we were young, I mean, you did some pretty horrible things to people, but you weren’t this. You weren’t a killer. But everything I’ve done, everything, I swear, was out of love for my family. When you’re a mom, you just — you sometimes do things that you’d never even think of otherwise. You’re — you’re a mom, laura. Come on. I mean, you, of all people should understand. I don’t understand, heather, and I never will. All I care about right now is making sure that you can never hurt my family again. And there it is —

your family. Oh, god. [ Laughs ] This was never about a professional decision between you and the da. It was always a personal one. This doesn’t have anything to do with me being a danger to our community. My family is part of the community. And I am your family! Ace has brought us together again. I know you don’t like it, but he is binding us together as grandmothers. And what about ace? That poor little boy has lost so much already. You cannot send away the only connection to his mom that he’s got in the world. Laura, I’m begging you now, please. Please don’t separate me from the only family that I have. No, no. Ace is no longer your concern, heather. He is not. Kevin and i are going to adopt him.

[ Laughs incredulously ] I will die before I let you and ryan chamberlain’s brother raise my daughter’s son! Her mother came in. She saw me in alley’s bed. Alley told her mother that she was gay, and her mom’s response was — was like — “the room is messy.” And then she just started, like, folding. It’s like you could practically see her brain short-circuiting because of the cognitive dissonance. It was wild. That must have been — I don’t even know. How do you feel about it? Well, we had talked ahead of time about her family, so I guess it wasn’t totally unexpected. Yeah, but experiencing it up close and personal is different. Yeah, it was tough. But, I mean, her mom called her today to talk, so… I mean, that’s a good sign, right? What? What are you thinking super loud and not saying? No, nothing, I swear, I just — I hope you’re right. I know what you’re doing. Of course, you are thinking that I’m being way too optimistic, and that this is a setup for ally to fall and that that is going be bad for her, which is bad for us as a couple, which is bad for me, which is bad for the baby, and it’s bad for you, because it’s your baby, right? Wow, how did you even get there from — no, think, kristina. Have I said anything like that? I’m sorry for my behavior when I found you with kristina, for — for when you tried to explain. I’m just, I’m sorry, honey. You really mean that? I do. I mean, you have to know that I was totally caught off-guard, and my response was just to completely shut down. But, I mean, I’m not a fool. I know what I walked in on. And I heard you when you were trying to explain to me. I did. I don’t know what to say. I was afraid I’d go my whole life without you ever saying anything like that. Well, I also feel like I should have known what was really going on, and why you would feel more comfortable with a woman right now. What do you mean? Well… what happened with linc brown, that was so traumatizing. An experience like that would make almost anyone want to experiment. I can’t believe that jason shot dante. You don’t want to believe it. I don’t — I don’t want to believe it, either. But we won’t know who shot dante until dante wakes up… … if he wakes up. Yeah. Sam, what… what you and dante have, it’s something really special. You don’t just love each other, you’re partners in every sense of the word. You work as a team. You co-parent. You have each other’s backs. You’re each other’s best friend. It’s inspiring. It really is. And that that sense of support and reliability just makes your love that much more powerful. You came back. Said I would.

It’s already been done, heather. But I will make you a promise. Ace will always be safe, and he will always be loved, and you can rest easy knowing that I will always take good care of him. But you can never see him again.

[ Gasps ] You asked me to give you the benefit of the doubt, to trust that you’d be responsible and healthy and do what’s right for the baby, so maybe I can ask you to do the same for me. Don’t assume I’m always judging you, because I promise, I’m not. I can do that. We got into this whole thing because we trust each other more than anybody. Let’s not forget that. I promise. I love you. I love you. And that trust extends to blaze, so if you think she’s worth fighting for, so do I. That’s not what this is about, at least not for me. I’ve been with women before. Honey, if this is what you need to heal, being with kristina, then I support you.

[ Scoffs ] I can’t believe you. What? What did I say? Who I am, my entire being, has nothing to do with what linc did to me. The fact that you can’t accept that — I can’T. Honey, where are you going? What are you doing? Come on, honey, please just sit down. Let’s just figure this out. I’ve lost my appetite.

[ Sighs ] Drew, jason’s my friend. No, that’s — that’s not true. I don’t know if there’s a word to explain how I feel about jason, but that doesn’t change how I feel about you. I know you love me. I do.

[Tearfully] I love you so much. And you love jax. And you love sonny. You love sonny a lot. But none of us, none of us will take jason’s place in your life, let alone — let alone in your heart. Jason is the one that you turn to when you’re afraid, when — when you’re in trouble. He’s the one that keeps your secrets, carly. He’s the one that you count on. He’s never failed me. What about the last 2 1/2 years when he let you think he was dead? That doesn’t count as failing you? I have gotten so used to you being there that I don’t think I’ve ever realized how much I actually rely on you. And I’ve got this huge news… and you are the only person that I want to share with. So I’m gonna need you to do the thing that only you can do, you know? Where you back up my feelings and you give me a new perspective all at the same time. Can you do that now for me? Please/ you thought about calling the cops. Yeah. Why didn’t you? I guess because you said you didn’t do it. Thank you. The safety’s on. It’s that little switch right there. If you ever have to handle a gun, you always make sure the safety is on, okay?

[ Exhales deeply ] Do you need me to help you? No. But I do need you to do something for me. You cannot tell your mother about this, that you saw me, or where I am. Why not? I can’t explain that. Danny, I just need you to trust me. Okay.
