Lucy observed as Ava finished going through her number for the Nurses Ball, and Griffin praised the performance. He gave her a bouquet and invited her to breakfast. She had an appointment, but she promised to see him later. They shared a kiss, and he left.
Lucy was lecturing Alexis about practicing when Finn entered. He revealed that he was introducing her as the first recipient of the Port Charles Pioneer Award. She thought it was a "consolation prize" for losing the mayoral election, but he reminded her of all the social justice work she did. He invited her to go to the ball with him.
A few minutes later, Finn was onstage, rehearsing his introduction. When Alexis walked up to the podium, Lucy deemed the entrance "boring." She advised Alexis to "saunter, sashay, or strut your stuff." She twirled as an example and knocked Alexis' purse over. Finn bent down to pick it up and was stunned to see that a copy of Anna's will had fallen out of the bag. He replaced the contents of the purse and handed it back to Alexis.
Sonny vented to Diane that Carly had been at the police station all night. Jason entered and asked Dante what the charges were. Dante revealed that it depended on whether or not Nelle and the baby survived.
Chase entered the interrogation room in order to give Carly her anxiety pills. Sonny, Jason, and Diane entered after him. Chase informed Carly that Nelle had said that Carly had pushed her down the stairs, and Carly accused Nelle of setting her up. She mentioned the blanket, but Chase revealed that no blanket had been recovered from the house. Diane suggested that Carly had imagined the blanket. "Absolutely not," Carly snarled, and Jason backed her up, proposing that someone else had grabbed the blanket.
Diane asked to speak to Sonny privately so that she could talk to Sonny about the details of Carly's arraignment while Carly and Jason brainstormed. When they were gone, Carly said she knew they didn't believe her. Jason assured her that her theory made sense, and they would figure everything out. Jason thought that Nelle had to have left a trail somewhere. He also offered to talk to Sonny on her behalf, but Carly reminded him that Sonny didn't trust Jason's judgment of Carly. He promised to always believe her.
Outside the interrogation room, Dante and Chase discussed how the statements from the guests at the baby shower showed Carly as the aggressor. Dante instructed Chase to finish questioning the Quartermaines' staff while he went to "find answers."
Diane wondered what Sonny thought about Carly, and Sonny replied that he thought Carly was going through a "breakdown" due to grief. He knew that Jason didn't feel the same, but Jason had a "certain relationship" with Carly. Jason emerged from the interrogation room, and Sonny advised him to "take a step back" from Carly.
Nelle awoke in her hospital bed and saw Michael asleep in a chair across the room. She pretended to be asleep and started yelling, "No, Carly!" over and over again. Michael shot up from the chair and "woke" her up, assuring her that it was "just a dream." Kim entered the room to check up on the baby. A few minutes later, she found the baby's heartbeat and assured Nelle and Michael that the baby was fine. Ava looked on from outside the room.
Kim wanted to keep Nelle overnight for monitoring as a precaution. Kim left the room. Dante approached her as she left the room, and Dante questioned her about Nelle and the baby.
Nelle caught sight of Ava outside her room and asked Michael to get her some orange juice. When he was gone, Ava entered and marveled that it had been "quite a shower." She assumed that falling down the stairs hadn't been in Nelle's original plan, but it had worked in Nelle's favor "all because of a blanket. Guess who's got it now?" Ava put forth, taking the blanket out of her bag. She remarked that the blanket was so good that Nelle should consider starting an Etsy shop.
Nelle said that the blanket didn't look familiar to her, but Ava informed Nelle that Ava had found the blanket on the landing of the stairs at the Quartermaines'. She'd sneaked it out while everyone else had been worried about Nelle. She thought that Sonny and Diane would be grateful to have the blanket in order to back up Carly's story. Nelle asked for it back, but Ava suggested that she hold onto it for "safekeeping." She thought that Nelle had enough to keep track of, like the photo on Nelle's phone of the DNA test Griffin had run.
Dante bumped into Michael outside of Nelle's room and said that he wanted to get Nelle's statement while it was still fresh in her mind. The two entered Nelle's room, and Dante asked for Nelle's version of events. Nelle started that it had been tense after Carly had blown up at her and Ava after Ava had given Nelle a mobile that had been off of Nelle's registry. Carly had said such awful things that Nelle had run to the nursery to calm down.
Nelle continued that Carly had followed her and told her that everyone would be better off without Nelle. Nelle had left the room, not wanting to subject the baby to any stress, but Carly had caught her at the top of the stairs. She'd shaken Nelle, screaming about how she would never get to Michael, and then she'd pushed Nelle. Dante mentioned the blanket, and Nelle claimed to not know about any blanket.
When Dante was gone, Michael instructed Nelle to get some rest. She told him to go to the Nurses Ball, but he promised to stay by her side all night. Kim entered and informed them that Nelle's room was ready, and Kim would be on call if Nelle needed anything during the night. Nelle regretted having to miss Ava's debut and suggested that Griffin record it on his phone. Ava told Nelle that the hospital got chilly at night, so Nelle should get an extra blanket. When Ava was gone, Nelle wondered what Michael thought would happen to Carly.
At the station, Chase told Dante that the statements from the Quartermaines' staff didn't contradict Nelle's version of events. Dante informed Chase that Nelle had said there hadn't been a blanket. Chase wondered what their next move was.
Inside the interrogation room, Diane revealed that Carly's arraignment wouldn't be until the next day. Carly assured Diane, Sonny, and Jason that she could make it for one more night just as Dante and Chase entered. Dante announced that Nelle and the baby were fine, but it was time for everyone to go. He cuffed Carly, and Sonny wondered if that was necessary. Dante answered that it was "standard procedure" for someone being charged with two counts of attempted murder. Carly instructed Sonny to go home and take care of the family. Jason promised to do as Carly asked, and Dante and Chase led her out.
Valentin's phone went off while he waited at the Nurses Ball rehearsal, and he saw a text from Peter saying, "Are you sure AD is under control?" Valentin wondered what was going on with Peter and replied that the situation was "under control." Lucy told Valentin that she was ready to see his number, but Valentin blurted out that it wasn't needed. He promised to see her later and took off.
Peter sat at the Metro Court restaurant and watched Anna. When he saw Valentin's text that the situation was under control, Peter said that that he'd "better make sure." He sauntered over to Anna just as she sent Henrik an email asking for a response. Peter jokingly asked if Anna was working on a "covert operation," and Anna seriously responded that it was none of his business. He asked a few questions about her career, and she wondered if he was interviewing her for one of his news outlets.
Peter revealed that he'd heard that Robert might have linked Valentin to Cesar and Henrik Faison, and he added that Nina and Maxie's safety was very important to him. Anna advised him to leave Nina's protection to Valentin, who had a "mean jealous streak," and Maxie's protection to Anna, who was Maxie's godmother. He wondered if Anna could put him in touch with Robert, and Anna promised to try to get a message to Robert for Peter.
As Peter walked out, Griffin entered, glaring at Peter. Griffin warmly greeted Anna, and he wondered if she was still searching for Henrik. She answered that she was, and she'd accepted the risks that went along with the search. She invited him to join her for breakfast, but he claimed to have a patient that needed him. They promised to catch up at the Nurses Ball, and he left.
Anna left a message for "Director Jones" of the WSB to get Robert in contact with her. A new email popped up on her computer from Henrik. He wanted to meet that night and promised to follow up with a time and place. He looked forward to the meeting and added that they had lots of catching up to do.
Andre approached Drew at Metro Court, and Drew revealed that he'd thought of a way for Andre to "make amends." He wanted Andre to "make me 'me' again." Andre replied that he needed the flash drive, but even if he had it, Drew's mind might not be able to withstand another procedure. Drew said that he was tired of letting Jason's past define his life, so he suggested that Andre just wipe Jason's memories from Drew's mind. He thought that, if there was a chance it would work, he was willing to try.
Griffin burst into Peter's office and warned Peter to leave town while he still could. "Leave or come clean," Griffin spat, and he left. Valentin saw Griffin storming away from Peter's office and went in. A clearly worried Valentin demanded to know what was going on. Peter admitted that Griffin knew who Peter really was, and he explained how. "You idiot," Valentin growled. "Do you know what you've done? You've screwed us both!" he yelled.
Peter explained that, as long as he upheld his promise to be a "law-abiding citizen," Griffin had promised to stay quiet. Valentin reminded Peter of how close Anna and Griffin were, and he realized how crushed Nina would be when she realized that he'd known Peter's true identity all along.
Valentin stormed through Metro Court on the phone, buying "one-way" tickets for himself, Nina, and Charlotte. "We're not coming back," he said into the phone.
Drew entered Peter's office, asking if Peter had seen Sam. He hadn't, but he asked if everything was all right. Drew divulged that he might have found a way to get back "everything I lost," and he left the office.
