At Metro Court Restaurant, Luke threatened to drop the vial of life-saving serum unless Jerry released Bobbie. Jerry saw the helicopter approach to rescue him, so he agreed to Luke's terms. Bobbie immediately ran to her daughter as Luke ordered Jerry to drop the knife that Jerry had been wielding. Jerry reluctantly complied and then demanded that Luke hand over the serum. Luke refused because he intended for the cure to go to Sean Donely.
Furious, Jerry advanced on Luke, and a brief struggle ensued. Carly and Bobbie looked on in horror as Luke and Jerry suddenly tumbled over the side of the balcony and disappeared. Bobbie was too terrified to look, so Carly ran to the edge of the balcony to check on her uncle. Bobbie was relieved when Carly quickly assured her mother that Luke had managed to grab onto a protruding ledge, so Bobbie raced over to help her daughter pull Luke to safety.
Luke brushed off the dust as Carly angrily demanded to know why Luke had refused to turn over the serum when Bobbie's life had been on the line. Bobbie assured her daughter that Luke had been bluffing but conceded that Luke had gone a bit too far. Appeased, Carly asked about Jerry. Bobbie doubted that Jerry could have survived the fall from the top of the building, but Luke wasn't so certain, so he decided to have a look at Jerry's body to make sure Jerry was dead.
After Luke left, Carly led Bobbie to the bar for a drink. They chatted for a few minutes until Carly suddenly realized that Patrick and Sabrina's wedding guests hadn't arrived for the reception.
In the hotel's lobby, a waiter dropped off a drink for Julian and politely referred to Julian as "Mr. Wells." Annoyed, Julian insisted that he be addressed as Mr. Jerome. The waiter quickly apologized and complied. "Was that necessary?" Ava asked as the waiter walked away. Julian ignored the question and asked where Morgan was. "Studying for the SATs?" Julian snidely asked.
Ava wasn't amused, so she reminded her brother that they were there to discuss how to deal with Duke Lavery. Ava thought that it was odd that Duke hadn't confronted them yet, so Julian suggested that Duke was on vacation and hadn't heard the news that Derek Wells was Julian Jerome. Ava scoffed because she was certain that Duke knew unless Duke had been locked up underground, which she insisted was unlikely. Ava suspected that Duke had been intentionally keeping a low profile to bide his time before taking Ava and Julian down.
Julian warned Ava that there was another enemy to worry about, but Ava pointed out that Sonny couldn't make a move against Julian in case Danny needed another bone marrow transplant. Julian pointed out that the same was not true for Ava, so Ava should watch her back. Ava was rattled at the realization that she wasn't safe from Sonny's wrath, so she jumped with fright when she suddenly heard a loud thump outside.
Julian and Ava went to the alley to investigate the noise and were shocked when they saw Jerry Jacks unconscious and bleeding on the ground. Ava wondered if Jerry was alive, so Julian checked for a pulse. Julian was surprised when he found one, so he said his former associate's name until Jerry slowly opened his eyes. Julian wryly noted that Jerry was a hard man to kill. "I can say the same about you," Jerry weakly replied.
Moments later, the waiter appeared in the alley to find out the source of the loud disturbance. The waiter became alarmed when he saw Jerry on the ground, so he quickly offered to call an ambulance. Jerry refused and then begged Julian for help by promising to do anything that Julian wanted. Julian accepted Jerry's offer, so he sent the waiter to fetch a towel and plenty of ice to stanch the bleeding. Ava had reservations about getting involved with Jerry again, but Julian ignored her.
Later, Julian and Jerry sat in the back of Julian's limousine as Jerry was whisked to Julian's boat. Julian made it clear that he intended to collect on Jerry's promise.
Meanwhile, Luke arrived in the alley. He was stunned when he realized that Jerry's body had disappeared. Moments later, Ava rounded the corner, so he demanded to know what had happened to Jerry Jacks. Ava feigned innocence as she claimed that she had no idea who Jerry Jacks was.
At Pozzulo's, Sonny was looking at a picture of Michael and Morgan during happier times when Shawn knocked. Sonny invited Shawn to enter the office, so Shawn was curious why Sonny had asked to see him. Sonny explained that they had to find a permanent solution to take care of Julian because Julian had caused too much damage to Sonny's business. Shawn was curious what Sonny had in mind, so Sonny suggested that they target someone close to Julian, since Julian was untouchable.
Shawn realized that Sonny intended to go after Ava. Sonny pointed out that Ava was up to her neck in Julian's business, but Sonny couldn't kill Ava because he had promised Kiki that he wouldn't touch her. Sonny refused to risk further alienating Morgan and Michael by killing Ava, so they had to find someone else. "Duke Lavery," Shawn suggested.
Sonny explained that there was a "river of bad blood" between Duke and Julian. Shawn was surprised because Julian had hired Duke. Sonny suspected that it was part of a strategy similar to Julian's move to pull Morgan to Julian's side. Sonny was certain that Duke wanted Julian taken down as much as Sonny did.
At the police station, Duke was waiting for Anna when she entered her office. Anna immediately apologized for not calling him sooner, but Duke assured her that it was okay because he knew that she had been busy. Anna seemed uneasy as she told him that Liesl Obrecht had been booked and processed. Duke asked if Robin had gone to the church, so Anna nodded and explained that she hoped that Robin had made it in time to stop the wedding.
Duke admitted that he was still amazed that Robin was alive, but he insisted that what Jerry Jacks, Liesl Obrecht, and Cesar Faison had put Robin through had been unacceptable. Anna's eyes filled with tears of anger as she agreed that Robin had suffered unimaginably at the criminal trio's hands. Duke quickly reminded Anna that Robin's ordeal was over, so Robin deserved nothing but happiness from that moment on.
"With her husband and child," Anna replied in agreement. Duke's eyes narrowed with concern as he asked if Anna was okay. Anna explained that she had been in Robin's shoes before, so she knew what it was like to return home only to discover that everything had changed. Duke pointed out that he also knew what that was like, but he assured Anna that they would work together to help Robin settle back into her life.
Duke was curious why Anna hadn't gone to the church with Robin, so Anna avoided eye contact with Duke as she cryptically explained that she had remained on Spoon Island with Robert to deal with Faison. Duke feared that Faison had hurt Anna because he sensed that something was amiss. Anna quickly assured Duke that she was fine, prompting Duke to wonder where Faison was. Anna carefully revealed that she had left Faison with Robert.
Duke assumed that Robert had returned Faison to Steinmauer prison, so Anna didn't correct him. Duke remained concerned about Anna because he continued to pick up on her tension. Anna assured him that she was okay, but she made it clear that she didn't want to talk about Faison anymore. Duke respected her wishes because he knew that Faison had put Anna through "hell."
Duke was eager to celebrate Robin's homecoming, so he decided to take a few extra days off from work. Anna suddenly recalled what Robert had told her about Derek Wells, so she broke the news to Duke that Derek was really Julian Jerome. Duke's shock turned to fury when Anna revealed that the World Security Bureau had aided Julian and had put the mobster into the witness protection program.
Duke was certain that Julian had hired Duke as a joke and that Julian had been laughing behind Duke's back the entire time. Enraged, Duke started to storm out of Anna's office, but Anna demanded to know what Duke planned to do. "I'm going to kill him," Duke answered between clenched teeth. Anna implored Duke to reconsider, but Duke reminded Anna of everything that Julian had taken from them, including their child. Anna tearfully argued that she couldn't lose Duke again, so she begged him to let the police handle Julian.
Anna wanted Duke to focus on Robin and the second chance that they had been given. Anna beseeched Duke not to go after Julian, so Duke reluctantly agreed. Relieved, Anna thanked Duke and then announced that she had to get to the church to check on Robin. Anna reminded Duke that it was a happy day for their family, so she asked Duke not to allow Julian to take that away from them. "I love you," Anna added. "I love you too," Duke replied.
After Anna left, Duke sat down to read the online edition of the Port Charles Press about Julian Jerome's return. Moments later, Duke's cell phone rang. It was Sonny requesting that Duke meet him. Duke wondered why Sonny wanted to see him. "I think you know the answer to that," Sonny replied and then ended the call. Duke looked at the picture of Julian that had accompanied the article about Julian's resurrection from the dead.
At the church, Lucy was about to pronounce Patrick and Sabrina husband and wife when Emma spotted her mother standing in the doorway of the church. "Mommy?" Emma asked. Emma took off running into her mother's arms when Robin turned to look at her daughter. All heads turned to Robin as Robin swept her daughter up into her arms. "Mommy's here," Robin tearfully whispered to Emma as she held her daughter and Emma tightly wrapped her arms around her mother.
Robin looked at Patrick as he continued to stare at her with disbelief. Next to him, Sabrina swayed on her feet, so Felix reached out keep her from collapsing. Behind Patrick and Sabrina, Lucy whispered to Elizabeth that it was a true miracle that Robin was alive.
Nearby, Mac started for his niece, but Felicia stopped him with a reminder that Emma needed time with Robin.
Meanwhile, Robin tearfully assured her daughter that she had thought about Emma every single day and that she had never stopped loving Emma. Emma promised Robin that she had never stopped loving Robin either.
At the altar, Patrick's eyes filled with tears as he whispered Robin's name. "Patrick," Robin quietly replied as her voice cracked with emotion. Patrick approached Robin and asked if she was real. Robin placed her hand over his heart as she confirmed that she was indeed alive.
Sabrina leaned on Felix as Felix wondered if the woman in the doorway was truly Robin. Lucy joyfully assured Felix that it was.
At the back of the church, Patrick desperately tried to make sense of everything because he had seen Robin perish in the explosion with his own eyes. Robin explained that she had been kidnapped and that a body had been left in her place. She admitted that it was a long story, but she wanted him to know that she had spent every single day trying to get back to him and Emma. She pointed out that she had finally made it, only to discover that he had been about to marry another woman. Patrick glanced at a heartbroken Sabrina, but then turned his attention back to Robin as Robin revealed that she had made several attempts to reach him.
Robin told him about her phone call on Emma's birthday. Emma quickly reminded her father that she had told Patrick that her mother had called, so Patrick wondered if Robin had called him several weeks earlier. Robin confirmed that she had, but she hadn't thought that Patrick had heard her.
At the front of the church, Sabrina's eyes brimmed with unshed tears as Robin told Patrick about recently working in the hospital's laboratory. Robin explained that she hadn't been able to let anyone know that she had been alive because it had been too dangerous and lives had been on the line. Overwhelmed with emotion, Patrick leaned down to kiss Robin.
Sabrina crumbled to her knees and wept. Patrick was oblivious to Sabrina's crushed heart as Robin admitted that she had dreamed of reuniting with Patrick and kissing him. Robin confessed that the reality had been better than the fantasy. Patrick admitted that he had dreamed of it too, but he had never thought it would ever happen.
Emma quietly told her father that Sabrina was crying, so Patrick turned to look at Sabrina. Sabrina fled the church in tears as Felix followed, so gently Robin urged Patrick to go after Sabrina. Robin promised Patrick that she wasn't angry at him, but she knew that he truly loved Sabrina. Patrick was afraid to leave Robin's side because he might lose her again, but Robin assured him that he wouldn't. Patrick ordered Robin not to move and then left.
Moments later, Mac approached his niece and then hugged her tightly as he confessed that he couldn't believe that he was holding Robin. Next, Felicia hugged Robin.
Anna appeared in the doorway, so Emma ran to her grandmother to share the wonderful news. Anna joined her family as they enjoyed a tearful reunion. Mac suddenly realized that Robert and Anna had left the clinic in Switzerland because they had known that Robin was alive. Anna confirmed his suspicions and then explained that they hadn't told Mac that Robin might be alive for fear of needlessly getting his hopes up.
Nearby, Elizabeth felt terrible that she had talked Patrick out of the idea that Robin was alive, but Epiphany pointed out that no one could have known. Lucy admitted that she was happy for Mac, but she felt terrible for Sabrina. Elizabeth confessed that she couldn't imagine what Sabrina was going through.
In the bride's changing room, Sabrina wept inconsolably as Felix tried to comfort her. Sabrina realized that she should be happy for Patrick and Emma. "This is their dream come true," Sabrina explained, but Felix argued that it wasn't fair to Sabrina. Sabrina insisted that it was clear that she had been a placeholder for Patrick's true love, Robin. Felix argued that Sabrina shouldn't assume that it was over between her and Patrick, but Sabrina pointed out that Patrick hadn't even wanted to see her. Just then, Patrick entered the room.
