Maxie finds out about Peter

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Kiki and Griffin arrived in his hotel room, and he offered to get some coffee for her. She declined the offer in favor of more Champagne. As she opened the bottle, she asked if he could dance. "Some," he admitted. She talked about how every woman dreamed of waltzing with a man when they were little, only to grow up and realize that no guys ever learned to dance. "That's life. Even the dreams that come true can be disappointing sometimes," she sighed.

"I don't know if I've ever had Champagne straight from the bottle," Griffin said as he laughed. She clinked her mug to his bottle, and they toasted "to first times." Kiki confided that she'd been forced to go to cotillion when she'd been younger, so she'd learned to waltz. Griffin confessed the same thing. "Prove it," she said, holding a hand out to him, and they waltzed around his room. They moved closer and closer until they shared a kiss. A short while later, they were in bed.

Nina collected herself outside of Maxie's room then entered the room cheerily. She assured Maxie that the nurses had said Maxie's baby had good vitals and was "well developed for his age." Maxie admitted that she felt like Nathan had been there that night, especially to help Peter along. She briefly wondered where Peter was, but she acknowledged how lucky she'd gotten that Peter had done so well. "If nothing else, I'm grateful to him for that," Nina replied.

Maxie wondered what Nina meant, as she'd thought Nina was fine with Peter. Nina blamed the phrase on being "emotional and tired," and she left so that Maxie could rest. When Nina was gone, Maxie was watching her son on the tablet when Drew entered. He congratulated her and asked if there was anything he could do for her. She teased that it wasn't his job to look after her, but he thought it was "good business practice" to look out for his best employee. She promised to keep an eye on Crimson while she was on maternity leave, but he advised her to focus on the baby. He promised to "run interference" between Nina and Peter if he needed to.

From the doorway, Valentin told Dante and Lulu that he was there for Nina and Charlotte. Lulu informed him that Charlotte was asleep and Nina was gone. He needed to find Nina, as he believed she'd "misinterpreted" things she'd overheard. Dante and Lulu threw accusations at Valentin. He decided not to wake Charlotte, but he would pick her up from school the next day. Lulu advised him to figure out where he and Nina stood first. He told Lulu to enjoy talking to her "pen pal," and he stormed out.

Dante asked Lulu what Valentin had meant by "pen pal." She revealed that she'd gotten a lot of emails from people claiming to be Henrik, but one had seemed credible. She admitted that Henrik had wanted to meet to tell his side of the story. She assured him that she'd been working with Anna, but he was still angry that she hadn't told him. He informed her that Peter had been setting her up, and he turned to leave for work.

Lulu thought she and Dante needed to talk, but he didn't agree. He accused her of not learning anything from Nathan's death. He informed her that Peter had probably been arrested, so she could write a story about that. When he was gone, Lulu cried while typing on her computer.

Robert entered the police station with Peter, who was handcuffed. He quickly updated Chase, who followed them into the interrogation room. Jason and Sam entered, and Peter yelled that he wanted to press charges against Jason for trying to kill him. Chase wanted some answers from Jason, who refused to talk without an attorney present. Chase informed Robert that they couldn't hold Peter without pressing charges, but Sam announced that Peter had committed fraud by filling out his Aurora employment papers with a name other than his own. She added that she was willing to press charges.

Chase talked about how Jason might want to press charges for Peter allegedly holding him prisoner, but Peter claimed he'd saved Jason's life. He'd been coerced into participating in the memory-writing procedure, but he'd betrayed his father and risked his life to keep Jason safe. Jason remembered that he'd been drugged and restrained for five years in a Russian clinic.

Peter claimed that he needed medical attention after Jason had hit him in the head. Chase reluctantly agreed and instructed an officer to have a cell ready for when they returned. When Chase and Peter were gone, Jason and Sam speculated on why Peter had requested medical attention -- until she remembered that Maxie was at the hospital. The two booked it out of the police station.

Anna kicked herself for not seeing that Peter was Henrik, but Finn reminded her that no one else had seen it either. She revealed that the existence of her child with Faison was the reason she'd pushed Finn away. He didn't think he had a right to judge. She told him the story of how she'd ended up where she was, and she regretted not keeping track of her child.

Anna's phone rang, and she answered it to Robert. He informed her that Henrik was going to the hospital, and he believed it was a stall. Anna relayed the information to Finn, who promised to go to the hospital and look after Peter. He made sure that she was all right, and he left. Anna told Robert that she would be there, but she had something to take care of first.

Jason and Sam arrived at the hospital, and Jason surmised that Peter would want to tell Maxie his own side of the story. As if on cue, Deanna pushed Maxie, followed by Drew, down the hall in a wheelchair to go see her son. Just then, Peter entered in cuffs, flanked by Chase and Finn. Peter asked for a minute to speak to a shocked Maxie, and it was eventually granted to him. He knelt next to Maxie and told her that he hadn't disclosed his real name. "My father named me Henrik," he said. "No, you're not," Maxie cried. "Maxie, I'm Henrik Faison," he replied.

Peter knew that Maxie would probably question every minute she'd spent with him, but he promised he'd never had an agenda with her. Maxie realized that Peter was why Faison had been at Crimson the night Nathan had died. He confirmed it, and Maxie anxiously asked Deanna to take her back to her room. When she was gone, Finn and Chase accompanied Peter on the elevator to get some tests run. A few minutes later, a doctor checked Peter out.

Sam informed Drew that Peter most likely had the flash drive with Drew's memories on it, but Drew refused to rely on Peter. He divulged that he and Andre were "taking matters into our own hands." He wanted to be Drew Cain, and he didn't want any trace of Jason. When he was gone, Sam told Jason, "he may not want that flash drive, but I sure as hell do." She got into the elevator and motioned for Jason to join her, which he did.

Back in her hospital room, Maxie was curled up in bed, crying. She thought back to Peter helping her deliver her baby, and she cried more.

Nina returned home and found Valentin. She informed him that she was only there to pack, but he asked her to listen to him. He was only asking her for empathy for Peter's circumstances. He explained that he'd been doing freelance work for Faison when he'd met Peter. Peter had been desperate for attention, and he'd asked his father to see him in a school play. While Faison had mocked Peter in front of Valentin, Valentin had decided to attend the play. "And so began our lifelong friendship," he said.

In response to Nina's skepticism, Valentin added that Peter had always tried to escape his father's shadow. The two had lost touch "for years," but Peter had reached out to Valentin one day for help in changing his identity. When Peter had moved to Port Charles, Valentin had protected Peter's secret because he'd owed Peter.

Just then, there was a banging at the door, and Anna called out for Valentin. Valentin offered to make Anna leave, but an unsurprised Nina got up to let Anna in. "You got what you wanted. My son almost shot me tonight," Anna growled at Valentin, shocking Nina. Anna told Nina a brief version of her story, and Valentin's part in it. Valentin admitted to threatening the family that Peter had been given to. He'd taken Peter straight to Faison as revenge on Anna. She agreed that he had every right to hate her, but he'd had no right to use her child to get back at her. She lunged at him.

Valentin knew he'd made a mistake, but Anna shot back that some mistakes couldn't be taken back. Nina stormed out of the room, and Valentin revealed that he'd never told Peter about his mother so that he didn't become Faison's obsession. He added that he was haunted every day by his "terrible mistake." "Go to hell," Anna said, storming out of the house. "I'm already there," he said tearfully. Nina returned with a suitcase as he tipped his drink. When she was gone, he let it spill.

Anna arrived at the police station and shared a knowing look with Dante. She entered the interrogation room and tearfully reached out to Robert. He gave her a hug as she cried in his arms.
