Anna meets Henrik

Monday, May 21, 2018

Cook Two emerged from the kitchen and found Olivia offering her a large bouquet as a thank you for saving the Nurses Ball. Olivia proposed that Cook Two become the house chef at the Metro Court, since she had done such a great job. Cook Two realized that then, Olivia would get the Quartermaines' kitchen to herself, but Olivia claimed to have never thought about that. Cook Two revealed that she'd gotten a job offer in Rome, as the recruiter from the Hotel Elysium had been there that night. Cook Two left to pack as Olivia realized, "Monica is gonna kill me." "Probably," Cook Two added, and she walked away.

After Valentin's performance, everyone at the Nurses Ball stood and clapped until Robert emerged from backstage and punched Valentin right in the face. Nina yelled at Robert to leave her husband alone, but Robert slapped a pair of handcuffs on Valentin and pushed him out of the room. Lucy ran onstage and stammered that everyone should sit and calm down, and she ran back off the stage.

Kiki and Felix noticed that she was having a "wardrobe malfunction" with the strap of her dress, so she figured someone backstage could fix it. As she got up and walked away, Dr. Bensch watched her leave.

Sonny figured that the arrest couldn't have happened to "a nicer guy." Stella asked if Sonny had seen Mike, and Sonny spotted his father on the stage. Mike picked up a microphone. He introduced himself and declared that he had Alzheimer's, but "the show must go on." He gave a nod to the accompanist, who began to play Frank Sinatra's "Summer Wind." There were smiles and tears in the audience, and as Mike sang, a big band appeared behind him.

Suddenly, Mike froze, and the band disappeared. Sonny had to help his father, so he jumped onstage and grabbed another microphone. He nodded to the accompanist, who began to play the song again. Sonny sang the next lyrics until Mike found his place in the song again, and the duo finished the song together. When the song was over, there was a standing ovation.

Ava wondered how she was supposed to follow that act as she got up to get changed. Bobbie hugged Mike and complimented his "wonderful" performance. She thought Mike and Sonny made a great team, and Mike joked that they were taking their act on the road. Drew shook Sonny's hand and commended him on what he'd done for Mike. Stella commended Sonny's performance, as well, but he touted Mike as the star.

Backstage, Kiki thanked Amy profusely as Amy left a dressing room with Kiki's dress to fix. Kiki was standing in the dressing room in just a slip when Dr. Bensch entered the room. "What are you doing here?" she demanded to know as she tried to cover up. Griffin entered and asked if there was a problem. Bensch claimed that he'd gotten turned around on the way to the bathroom, and Griffin pointed him in the right direction. When he was gone, Kiki began to cry, but she blamed in on the stress. She sobbed on Griffin's shoulder as Ava walked by and caught sight of the two.

Robert pushed Valentin into the hall at the Metro Court and pointed a gun at him. As Nina approached, Robert said that he knew all about Valentin's involvement with Henrik. Valentin advised Robert that Anna was about to walk into a trap. Robin emerged from the ballroom and made sure that Robert was all right, because she thought he looked terrible. She informed him that Anna had gotten a message on her phone, and she'd taken off. Robert took off, leaving Valentin and Nina alone.

Nina quietly demanded to know how long Valentin had known about Henrik, and if Nathan would still be alive had Valentin spoken up. Valentin insisted that it was impossible to say if his silence had changed anything, but Faison's appearance had been inevitable. Nina believed him, and he promised to tell her the rest of the story in Morocco. Robert returned to take Valentin away.

Peter told Maxie that he would take her to the hospital, but she screamed that there was no time. Peter called an ambulance as she made herself comfortable on a blanket outside the car. She breathed in between screams of pain and finally asked him to check for the baby. He saw the head and instructed her to push. After a few pushes, she heard the cries of a baby. Peter wrapped the baby up in his jacket and handed Maxie her son.

Peter and Maxie heard sirens, and the ambulance finally pulled up. She wanted him to accompany her to the hospital, but he promised to meet her there. She asked him to call Spinelli, as her parents were out of town. As Maxie was pushed away on a stretcher, Peter advised her to "take care of your beautiful baby. I'll take care of everything else." Peter got into his car and pulled out a gun.

Spinelli sat down at Peter's computer and wondered what he was supposed to be looking for. Jason shared a knowing look with Sam and admitted that he wanted proof that Peter was Henrik. A shocked Spinelli began typing and quickly got into Peter's inbox. He read the emails that were supposedly from Henrik's mother, and Jason realized that Anna had cut him out of her communications.

Just then, Spinelli's phone rang. He answered it, expecting to hear Maxie's voice, but instead heard from Peter. He informed Spinelli that Maxie had asked Peter to call Spinelli, as she'd had the baby and was on the way to the hospital. He told a confused Spinelli that he'd delivered the baby, and Peter hung up. A stunned Spinelli told Jason and Sam that "Nathan's brother just delivered Maxie's baby." Jason asked for one last look before Spinelli went to visit Maxie, and Spinelli found the email about the meeting place and time. Spinelli left for the hospital, and Jason rushed off to the pier.

At the ball, Lucy introduced Ava, and Ava took to the stage. She sang Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me," directing most of the lyrics at Sonny. When the song was over, those who didn't consider themselves Ava's enemies stood and clapped. Bobbie kicked Scott out of her table after he gave Ava a standing ovation. Lucy apologized to Sonny for the performance, as it hadn't been what Ava had done in rehearsal. Sonny replied that the night was too important to let Ava ruin it.

Ava returned to her table after the performance, and Griffin wondered what had happened to the song he'd seen her do at rehearsal. She revealed that she'd had a "last-minute inspiration," thanks in part to Griffin and Kiki.

Kim told Drew that she had to get to the hospital after a patient had prematurely given birth, but her ride had left. He offered to give her a ride, and they left.

Lucy got back onstage and thanked Olay, the ball's "generous" sponsor; the performers; the support staff; and the crew. She also thanked everyone who'd donated, as they'd broken the Nurses Ball record for money raised. She revealed that the nurses had one more song, and Bobbie, Deanna, Epiphany, Amy, and Felix took to the stage, eventually being joined by the rest of the nurses.

When the inspirational song was over, there was a standing ovation. Kiki gave Ava a bouquet for her performance. Ava thanked her daughter and took Griffin's arm so they could make their way up to Griffin's room for the night. When they were gone, Bensch approached Kiki and promised to see her "bright and early" the next morning.

In a bed at the hospital, Maxie asked Kim about the baby, and Kim replied that the baby was in "great shape." Maxie wanted to see her son, and Kim revealed that she had an idea. A few minutes later, Kim returned to the room with a tablet. She couldn't take the baby to his mother's room, but there were webcams in the nursery for "virtual visitation." Kim commended Maxie for the great job she'd done. "Except that my water broke all over Peter's car," she joked. Just then, she wondered where Peter was.

Anna arrived at the pier and called out for Henrik. She looked around and paced back and forth while thinking about the various warning-filled conversations about Henrik that she'd had with Robert and Jason. She heard footsteps and called out for Henrik. "Peter?" she asked as she caught sight of him. "You were right the first time, mother," he growled. He accused her of posing as his mother for the WSB in order to flush him out, but she insisted that she had something to tell him. He took out his gun and pointed it right at her.
