Esme is delivered to  Spring Ridge.  Heather tells her everything will be ok.  The scary one tells her that she is a friend. They are all in the same boat here.  Esme has no memory of her past and does not have a clue why she is there. She tells her new friend Heather that the judge called her a menace to society and had her delivered at this shady place. Heather tells her she is better off here then at Pentonville Prison. This place is a piece of vanilla cake with chocolate icing. You can come and go as you please, you can visit all your new friends in their room, lock the doors so the guards can’t get in. Heck they are criminals themself.

me tells Heather that she has been treated like a criminal herself, everyone tells her that she is the she-devil.  Heather will not let anything happen to her. Esme doesn’t know why she should trust Heather or understand why she is so protective of her.  After all they just met, they do not know each other. She asks Heather how she ended up there. Because she loved too much, was her reply. She tells Esme about her family, that she has two sons, one is in the big house and the other is six feet under. She then shares that someone took her baby girl. Esme says she wishes someone would take her baby. Heather grabs her arm and tells her not to say that, which scares the hell out of Esme when she tells her that she is hurting her.  

Esme cannot wait to get away from this scary woman  asking when her room would be ready. Next Heather offers up a warning for Esme to avoid Ryan Chamberlin.  He is as sick as they come.  The guard finally shows up and tells Esme that her room is ready. She cannot get aways from this scary person fast enough. Heather sees her.bracelet that she forgot on the table.  She  yells down the hallway at Esme and her guard that she will be right there when Esme needs her.  No worries Heather you have a creepy way about you of getting into rooms and scaring the hell out of patients including Ryan Chamberlin.

Spencer is sitting at a table in Kelly’s waiting on Ave to arrive.  He is looking at the news on his phone about Esme. Ava arrives and he explains his plan to her, admitting   He wants someone he can trust to help him.  He apologies to Ava for being so mean to her when he returned. He was totally wrong about her. It was never her, it was always his father. Ava tells Spencer that Nikolas wronged both of them with Esme.  He is hoping to hire Diane to sue for custody.  He tells Ava it’s a long shot but if  she will consider going to war for him he may have a chance.  She tells Spencer that his father will figt dirty and he will need to get down in the gutters with him. As Ava puts it, no one can do dirty like she can. She agrees to help. 

Before they get started she has two things to say to Spencer, after realizing he has not told Trina, she encourages him to do just that first, do not keep her in the dark like before as he sees where that lead him. Also she needs him to know that she plans to make Wyndemere her grand prize in her divorce from Nikolas. Spencer is a-okay with all that.

Nina and Sonny arrive at the hospital so she can get further tested to see if she is a match for Willow.   Nina is all giddy and Sonny tells her to calm down.  She is amped up.  She tells Sonny that she can not lose Willow. .  Nina tells Sonny to be happy for her.  Nina said this is an incredible gift and I get to be a mother.

TJ is in Willow’s room.  She is moving forward to deliver the baby.  She wants the transplant and she hopes Nina is a match.  TJ tells her to keep the faith.  Willow says to  Michael, it all depends on Nina.  Carly is looking in.  She said she took the cowards way out but that she is back to fix it.  Willow tells her to come in and ask Michael to give them some time alone. He heads to the chapel.  

Carly wishes she could go back to the night she found out about Nina being her mother. She tells Willow if I would’ve known what you were facing, I would have never kept it from you.  Willow tells Carly  even if it was Nina?  Carly replies that  she has her family and she would have never put her at risk. Willow understands why she protected her but it wasn’t her choice to make.  She prays that she has not waited too long and that  she has the strength to live for Michael, Wiley and her baby.  Carly loves her like her own daughter.  Carly hopes Nina comes through for the baby.  She forgives Carly. Realy?

 Sonny comes into Willow’s room, he needs to see for himself how she is holding up. She says I cannot believe I am asking this question but how is Nina doing?

She asks Sonny to promise that if she doesn’t make it he will do whatever he has to do to work things out with Michael.  He needs you and you need him.  He promises Willow he will do whatever….it takes to bring his family back together. 

Michael is in the chapel praying. Carly is peeking  in.  She slips in behind Michael.  Carly asks if there is room in his heart for her.He accuses Carly of holding the information about Willow and Nina out of revenge and that he cannot deal with her right now. He leaves her in the chapel and returns to Willow’s room.  He tells her that he just cannot forgive his mother.

Carly is still in the chapel as Sonny walks in….fade to a very intense stare. Something tells me this is not going to be pretty!
