Alexis woke up and turned her head to the side. She was shocked to see Finn lying beside her. When he opened his eyes, his own shock was apparent. Alexis jumped up to get dressed and assured Finn she'd be out of his place quickly. Their interaction was awkward as they realized that, apparently, they'd had sex. Finn promised that he hadn't been "high or strung-out," and Alexis agreed that she hadn't had a drop of anything. Finn wondered if it counted as a mistake if they'd both been sober.
Anna and Finn were startled when someone knocked on the door. Alexis went on a search for her shoes, and Finn found Anna standing on the other side of the door. "Success, found them!" Alexis shouted as Finn asked Anna to return in a little while. Anna insisted it was important. Finn asked her to wait, closed the door, and told Alexis that maybe he'd see her at a meeting. Alexis hoped that Anna had "come to her senses," though she wished it had been ten minutes from then. She thanked Finn for not allowing her to be alone after the election, and Finn acknowledged that he'd been happy for the company.
Anna was waiting by the door as Alexis rushed out. Anna walked inside and stepped over the mess on the floor. Finn stopped to feed Roxy as Anna explained that there was some kind of trouble with Cassandra. The WSB had contacted Anna, and they were sending someone to meet with them at the police station. She was concerned that perhaps they thought that Finn had compromised the mission, and she would protect him. Finn shouted that he didn't want or need Anna's protection. He had volunteered and had insisted on being involved himself, and he was able to take care of himself.
Anna was ready to leave, but Finn wanted to take a shower first. She gave him a difficult time and noted that they were late, but Finn didn't care.
Oscar and Josslyn sat at a table at Charlie's Pub. Josslyn mentioned that, while her parents were dysfunctional and all of her siblings had different parents, they had been connected through Morgan and treated each other as siblings. With that being said, she wanted Oscar to be aware that she knew as much about Julian as the others. None of it was good, she added.
Kim ran into Julian outside the pub and told him how sorry she was about Alexis losing the election. She knew that Alexis' heart had been in the right place. Julian agreed that, politically, that was true. Kim realized that Julian still cared deeply for Alexis. He thanked Kim again for helping him out at the Quartermaine house. She told him that Oscar and Josslyn were inside and were waiting to ask him something.
Julian headed over to the teens' table, and Oscar told him about the bullies at school. Julian noted that there were bullies everywhere. Oscar explained about the alternative dance that they wanted to have, where everyone could attend and be themselves. He wanted all LGBTQIA kids and their friends to attend. "Can we have it here?" Oscar asked. Josslyn glared at Julian, who suggested they have the dance at the Metro Court. Josslyn assured him that Carly had offered but rudely figured he either didn't want to be inclusive or it had something to do with Sonny. Julian sat down as Alexis walked in and sat at another table.
Julian explained that he had gotten beaten up in prison for defending others who hadn't fit in, and he had almost died. That had been the reason that Alexis had defended him. He'd experienced both sides because he had been a bully too. He stood and offered the pub free of charge. Oliver stood, too, and shook Julian's hand. Josslyn and Kim added their thanks.
Oscar got his mother alone and asked her what was going on between her and Julian. She said nothing, but Oscar didn't believe her. He wondered if she was okay with Julian's past with the mob and the fact that he was an ex-con. Kim insisted they were just friends, and Oscar advised her to be careful.
Julian sat with Alexis and told her how sorry he was about the election. Alexis assured him that his life had been worth more to her. She'd overheard what he had been planning with the kids, and she couldn't believe it was the same Julian she had known. He informed her that he had taken a page out of her book. Alexis rose and announced that she had to close down her headquarters next door, which meant she would no longer have a reason to stop into the pub. She headed to the door.
Julian went back to Oscar, Josslyn, and Kim and suggested a menu for the party. Alexis turned, gave a last look, and walked out, slamming the door.
Maxie spent some time on her sofa, thinking, but finally got up and began to pack up Nathan's belongings into boxes and bags. Sam arrived with some food and expressed dismay at Maxie's actions. Maxie admitted that she couldn't leave her apartment as it was because it only reminded her that Nathan wouldn't be returning. Sam suggested a break, but Maxie wanted to finish.
Sam began to help Maxie pack, and going through Nathan's nightstand, she found some items that she thought Maxie should keep. Maxie mentioned that the Jeter-signed baseball was something she'd given Nathan for a wedding present. She was adamant that nothing remain. Sam commented on several of the items and suggested again that Maxie keep some items. She thought that one day, Maxie would want to "dive into" her memories.
Maxie insisted that she couldn't keep replaying her life with Nathan, and it wasn't good for the baby. Sam related how she'd gone through the same thing when she'd thought that Jason had died, but she'd saved a few things. She still thought that Maxie and the baby would want them. Maxie called Sam clueless, though Sam insisted she'd gone down the same path, and she understood. Maxie reminded her that Jason was alive, and Sam had only thought he'd been dead. Maxie had watched Nathan die, and she'd watched him be buried. She knew where he was and where he'd be forever. He wasn't going to be back.
The women finished packing, and Maxie thanked Sam for her help. Maxie had to get ready for work, and she went into the bedroom. Sam quickly snatched a small box before she headed out the door. Maxie emerged from the back and removed the photos from the mantel. She placed them in a box and sealed it up.
Lulu accompanied Dante to the police station. She wondered if he was ready to work again. Dante picked up Nathan's Yankees travel mug and looked at it forlornly. Lulu wished she could be there for Maxie, and Dante reminded her that Nathan's death wasn't her fault. Lulu informed him that she had submitted resignation letters to her editor and to Peter. She was going to give up her career and try to get back with Maxie. She wasn't happy, but she had her family to love. Dante hugged her, and she wished him luck for the day. He walked her out.
Dante returned to his desk and saw a new man unpacking his things at Nathan's former desk. He was not happy, but Jordan told him that she had been the one to direct the man there. Dante asked to speak to Jordan in private, and they went into the interrogation room. She informed him that the new cop's name was Harrison Chase, he had been highly recommended, and he was new to Port Charles. She thought that he could benefit from Dante's experience. Dante retorted that he didn't want a new partner. They argued briefly, and Jordan suggested that he take bereavement leave.
Dante wondered if that was an order. Jordan reminded him that it was his right, and she suggested that he do so. Dante refused. She ordered him to go to counseling, and after admitting that she had gone herself, Dante agreed. She confessed that she missed Nathan too. "No one can replace Nathan," she added. Dante agreed to say hello to the new cop. He found Chase looking through some case folders. Chase announced that he wanted to familiarize himself with recent cases.
Finn and Anna rushed into the interrogation room to meet with the representative from the WSB. They apologized for being late. Anna immediately tried to stick up for Finn and told the man that Finn was an innocent civilian. She had pressured him to be an asset. Finn jumped in and told the man that he himself had decided to be more involved, and he had been the one to initiate things with Cassandra. He had known what he was doing. The man assured them that everyone in charge knew the story.
Both Finn and Anna were confused, and Finn asked if he was being reported to the AMA. The man was confused, too, and announced that, at an upcoming ceremony, the pair would be receiving a high honor for their achievements. "Thank you for your service. And try to have a nice day, will ya?" the man said as he fled the room. Finn and Anna looked at the paperwork that the man had left behind for them. They were in shock. They rose to leave, and Anna awkwardly started to ask if Finn and Alexis were involved. She stopped midway then asked if it had been what she'd thought she'd seen. Finn hummed yes.
Anna said good then stormed out of the room. She walked quickly past Jordan and Dante. Jordan asked if she was okay. Dante offered to go after her, but Jordan stopped him. She introduced him to the new cop instead, and they shook hands. The cop informed Dante that everyone called him Chase. He pulled out his own mug from a box. It was a Red Sox travel mug. Dante glared at it.
Peter spied Valentin and Nina sitting at a table at Metro Court. Peter didn't think that Nina could possibly be ready to work, and Valentin revealed that he had said the same thing to his wife. Nina insisted that Nathan would want her to go on with her life. Peter was sorry that he hadn't known Nathan, but it sounded like he had been a "best brother." Nina confirmed that was true. Nathan had been the best brother in the world. Valentin shared a smile with her.
Peter pointed out that Nathan had been shot in the Crimson office, and Valentin agreed. Nina noted that she had the privilege of going to work and going home, unlike Nathan, who couldn't do that anymore. Her voice cracked, but she stood up and headed for the elevator. She got to the office and looked around at the disarray. The police tape was still there, along with overturned chairs and flower vases. Nathan's blood was still on the rug. She thought she'd make Nathan proud and began to clean up.
Peter sat down with Valentin, who admitted he was glad that Peter had stayed in town because it was probably safer for him. He thought that Peter was at risk from Jason Morgan, who would have questions for him. Peter declared that he had stayed behind for Maxie because they'd had a connection. Valentin told him to be careful, especially after Maxie learned that he had encouraged Lulu. Just then, Lulu arrived and was curious that the men knew each other.
Peter stated that he'd met Valentin through Nina, and they were concerned that Nina had gone to work. Lulu couldn't believe that Nina had returned to the office, and sarcastically, Valentin suggested that Lulu sounded like she cared but hadn't been responsible for showing Faison to their doorstep. He tossed some money onto the table and left. Peter apologized for Valentin but Lulu had to admit that he had been right. She was responsible, and she was resigning. She didn't want Peter to try to talk her out of it. Peter stated that if she took responsibility for Faison showing up, then she also had to take credit for his capture.
Lulu insisted that she had to make things right. Peter revealed that he had handed in a resignation, also, because he'd felt responsible that he hadn't been able to stop Faison from shooting Nathan. Peter insisted that if they left, it wouldn't give them peace of mind. Lulu wanted to concentrate on her family. Peter told her that was all good, but it wasn't journalism, and she needed the spark that she got from that. She would lose herself if she quit. Peter didn't think that she should allow Faison to take anything else away, and she should use her skills and talent for the good of everyone.
Valentin stepped off the elevator at the Crimson office and found Nina on her hands and knees, frantically trying to scrub the blood from the rug. She was sobbing and breathing heavily. "I can't fix it. I can't get it out," she wept. Valentin got down and wrapped his arms around her. Eventually, he covered the stain with a cloth and promised to buy a new rug for the office. He wanted to take Nina home, though she insisted that she had work to do. "It broke me," he said of the way he'd seen her on the floor. Nina thought it would be worse if Maxie saw it, and she wanted the rug replaced before Maxie got there. Valentin wept.
