To which Nikolas mumbles to himself ‘never say never’.

Laura visits Esme in the hospital.  Esme doesn’t recognize her.  She tells her she is connected with crimes.  Laura grills Esme about about where  did you go when you were missing? She tells Esme she is the mayor of Port Charles and the grandmother of the baby she is carrying.  Esme says that Spencer is the baby’s father.. by a picture that Laura showed her.  He came to visit her and told her they use to be boyfriend/girlfriend and he may be baby daddy. She is so confused.  Esme doesn’t think many people likes her from the cuffs to the bed and that attitude of most when she meets them, .  Dante walks in to question her.  He asks if she recognizes the picture of the Christmas ornament.  She said it means nothing to her.  Dante says she may not be under investigation as the hook killer but other many other things. Laura tells Dante, “We can’t let her go without consequences.”  Dante asks Laura if she thinks Esme is faking it.

Meanwhile back in Willow’s room Michael tells Willow that she  needs to hear what Nina has to say.  Nina tells Willow that she is her daughter.  Michael says it’s true.  Willow cannot believe what she is hearing, she wants to know what happened.  Nina explains she had twins.  Nelle is her sister.  Wylie is actually your nephew. Nina hopes they could have a relationship. They were both robbed. She never gave permission for anyone to take her. Willow explains the fact that we are related changes nothing. Willow tells her that she tormented her.  Nina said a crime was committed against you and me.  Willow asks Nina what do you want in exchange if you are a match?  Nina says I want nothing. I’m going to the lab.  I want to save your life.  Willow says to Michael why couldn’t it be anyone but Nina?

Dante joins Sonny, Drew & Carly in what looks like a very tense moment. He tells them he just left Nina in Willow’s room. Carly begrudgingly  tells Sonny that Nina is Willow’s mother.  How long have you known, Sonny wants to know? He then realizes that  Drew also knows, you knew about this too?  Dimples is no longer smiling. He insists,  this is a vendetta?  Sonny argues you were doing this to get back at Nina.  As Drew, Carly and Sonny are arguing, Michael wants to talk to Sonny in private.  He shares his anger on Carly staying silent but asks that Sonny deal with his feelings at a later time.  Sonny can and will do that, he just wants to know how Michael is holding up. Michael says that Willow is his priority.  She is devastated.  Sonny is consoling him even though Micael cannot get over himself. He tells his son that he is doing all the right things as a partner, as a father. Michael needs to get back to Willow. 

Nina comes out and hugs Sonny.  She said Willow doesn’t want anything to do with me.( Nope those two would rather continue their ‘I hate Nina movement’ instead of saving lifes. Just sayin!
