At the PCPD Dante is interrogating Nikolas who he shares his thoughts with. Dante does not feel Esme in her current condition could do these killings alone. He feels that she has had an accomplice and that person is Nikolas.

Portia and Curtis meet up at the Coffee Shop in PC, Curtis tells her that Trina sent him. She is worried about how Portia is handling her bosses death.  Curtis wants her to know that he is always there for her. He tells her that Trina told him that she loved him the other day. They talk about their wedding and how they cannot wait to become husband and wife.

Austin finds Liesl in Britta’s office packing everything up. He tells her she does not have to do that now. She wants to preserve what is left of her Britta. Austin promises no one will touch a thing in Britt’s office and he will have it all packed up and sent to her. Obrecht thanks him for the beautiful birthday gift he gave Britt at her birthday party. Austin admits to her that Britt was leaving Port Charles for good, not just going on a vacations. He is sorry she had to find out this way but Obrecht says she could not be prouder of her daughter who just wanted to go somewhere and die alone. Britta did not have an easy childhood, she hopes that left this world knowing important and loved she really was.

Lizzie calls Doctor Collins. She thinks he can see through Esme and her claim to have amnesia. Everyone thinks she is faking it. Esme instantly says that he looks familiar to her, She cannot remember anything but she remembers evil as in her dad’s face. Dr Collins is just beginning a session with her when her lawyer enters the room. Martin Grey (looking like Tad the Cad) at your service Ms Prince. A new client indeed, stops the therapy session and tells Esme she cannot speak or discuss anything with anyone but him. She asks what does she need an attorney for? Martin informs her she is under arrest for murder in the first degree.

Martin is mumbling to himself as he leaves Esme’s room thanking the judge for this messed up client. Nikolas slithers up behind him and informs Martin that he is the one who asks that he represent Esme. She is carrying his baby. He wants Esme and his baby kept safe until she gives birth. He will pay Martin double his fees to do just that, after all he is family. Money talks and Martin is happy to oblige. 

Over at Spring Ridge the two troubled souls are talking when Ryan realizes Heather is the hook. He actually likes the idea and wants her to work faster. She admits she is doing it for her baby girl. Ryan informs her they will soon be grandparents, their daughter is pregnant. To Heather’s  delight she squeals that they will soon be one happy family. He quickly reminds her that she is forgetting Ava. Oh yes, we will be a happy family of five. Spring Ridge is exactly the type of place where you would want to be incarcerated. It is almost like a cheap hotel. Guards that let the criminally insane sneak out for the evening, Kevin has been walking and talking for months and no one at the facility has even noticed, therapy consist of just blinking your eyes once or twice, patients/criminals can go from cell to cell at leisure, the list of privileges just goes on and on.
