Elizabeth woke Franco from a bad dream, and after realizing where he was, he leaned over and gulped some water from a bottle at the side of the bed. He turned over and snuggled with Elizabeth, who informed him that after getting the boys off to school, she'd gotten back into bed. She asked Franco about his dream, and he related that it had been about a little boy calling for help. He said it hadn't been Drew but just a kid. "Like I was just a kid," he added.

Franco pulled a sheet of paper out of his bedside table and handed it to Elizabeth. It was the paper that he had given to Harvey to use to write down the names of all the children Harvey had accosted. Elizabeth wondered if Harvey could have made up the names, but Franco was certain they were real. He declared that Harvey had known the names by heart. Elizabeth couldn't believe how many names were listed, and she wondered how all of them had dealt with it and been able to trust people. Franco called himself lucky and said maybe the others had been lucky as well.

Elizabeth reminded Franco that he had been the one to stop Harvey, although Franco replied that it hadn't been soon enough. Elizabeth suggested that the others might be grown and healed, or they could all be haunted and suffering. She asked Franco what he was going to do with the list. Franco admitted that he wasn't ready to do anything with it. Elizabeth offered her help, but Franco stated that he didn't know how to find the other boys -- and perhaps they didn't want to hear about it anyway.

Franco didn't want to remember Harvey, much less talk about him, and he questioned how he could be the voice of all the others. Elizabeth understood and told Franco how she had felt after she had been raped. People had helped her, and she was there for Franco, but there was no rush. She also reminded Franco again that he hadn't been born evil, had not tried to kill Drew, and had been lied to and manipulated. The one person who should have been there for Franco had failed him. "I love you," Franco said. He knew that all of the horrid details would be behind them some day. Franco and Elizabeth made love.

Curtis paid a surprise visit to Jordan at the police station. He had a cup of coffee for her and breakfast sandwiches, and she confided that she'd been working all night. He gently massaged her shoulders as she sat at her desk. She informed him that she had no leads or luck in locating Avery and Mike, and Ava had been pacing the interrogation room all night. As a parent, Jordan understood how worried Ava had been.

Jordan admitted that she hated everything about the case, and Curtis revealed that he had been investigating Peter August at Nina's request. He didn't think that Peter was what he seemed to be. Jordan was confused over Curtis' investigation, as Peter had been cooperative. Curtis stated that Nina had had some suspicions about her boss, and Curtis had found a discrepancy. The investigation was because of Nina's sister-in-law.

Curtis explained that there were no records of a previous address for Peter, and he hadn't appeared to exist before the age of 21. Jordan suggested that people moved around, and perhaps Peter had belonged to wealthy parents who had kept him sheltered and protected. Curtis suspected that records had been doctored instead, especially since he hadn't even been able to find birth records. He thought that maybe Peter was in the Witness Protection Program. He asked Jordan if she might be able to find out, and she agreed. She quickly made a phone call.

At the hospital, Kiki thanked T.J. for putting up flyers about her missing sister, and T.J. noted that his mother had been working with the FBI all night. Kiki thought that she should go to her mother, but T.J. asked if she could do that, since it was the first day of her shadowing program. Kiki admitted that she had wanted to turn down the program because "it didn't feel right." She had been warned that it would be unprofessional and that she would look ungrateful if she bowed out of it.

T.J. declared that Kiki had to have a lot more to offer than he did because he had thought that he would have been the one selected because of his grades. He would have jumped at the chance if selected. He assumed that with Kiki working at the hospital already, she had known many of the people involved. Kiki had forgotten that T.J. had applied, also, and she wasn't very happy. She attributed it to her missing sister, although she flashed back to her meeting with Dr. Bensch and his kiss.

Shortly after, Dr. Bensch approached Kiki and asked if she was ready. Kiki explained that her sister was missing, and she thought that her mother needed her. She asked if she might be able to postpone her first day of shadowing. Bensch was rude and told her he was sorry there was a conflict, but she couldn't allow it to get in the way. He asked if she might be essential in the search for her sister. When Kiki replied that she was not, Bensch demanded that she put her career first. She couldn't have the day off to hold her mother's hand.

"Are you doing this because I rejected you?" Kiki asked. Bensch exploded and told her to start acting mature and that everything wasn't about her. He told her that there was work to be done unless she wanted to "wallow in your personal problems." He stalked off angrily, and Kiki rushed after him.

Maxie and Nina sat at a table at Charlie's Pub. Maxie admitted that she hadn't been sleeping well. Nina said that she wanted to speak to Maxie in private about Peter, and Maxie admitted that she wanted to discuss Peter also. Just then, Peter arrived, and he was surprised to see both of the women. Maxie revealed that she had arranged for them all to meet without telling them ahead of time in order to get them to know each other better. She accused both Peter and Nina of "smiling through gritted teeth" whenever they saw each other.

Maxie wanted no more awkwardness between them, and Peter offered to dispel all of Nina's doubts. Nina noted that Peter had never talked about himself, but Peter insisted that he'd always been a listener. Nina wanted him to talk. She wanted to hear his stories. Peter joked that he had never been good on first dates, and Maxie reminded him that it wasn't a blind date. Peter tossed the ball back into Nina's court and noted that he didn't know anything about her either. Maxie urged Nina to talk as they all enjoyed breakfast.

Nina proceeded to tell Peter her life story in one long monologue without breathing. She told him she'd been pregnant, and her mother had told her about her husband's affair and had injected her with something that had put her in a coma for 20 years. She'd lost the baby, woken up, induced another woman into labor, kidnapped the baby, and been institutionalized. She'd loved a man who everyone hated, they'd broken up, and then she'd been with another man who everyone hated. They were divorced. Then she had gotten the job at Crimson, and she'd turned it around. She then had her career, her husband, and their daughter. Her brother had been shot to death. "You're next," Nina said to Peter as she drew a long breath.

Maxie looked uncomfortable, and Peter was aghast. He admitted that his story wasn't as dramatic. He'd had an unhappy childhood with no mother and a father who had shipped him off to boarding school in Europe. Then he had traveled to the United States. Every time that he made mention of something, Nina stopped him to ask specifics. Peter did not provide any specific details and continued to speak in general terms. No names of schools, as there were many, he said. When he finally mentioned a place where he'd worked, Nina asked him a trick question. Peter weaseled his way out of it. Maxie continued to shake her head in silence.

Peter insisted that he'd never stayed in one place long enough to care for another person. Suddenly, Nina received a phone call, and she had to leave. Peter sarcastically said it was a shame. Both Nina and Peter agreed that they had no problem with the other, although Nina thought that Peter's budget was out of line. She left, and Maxie made it known that things hadn't really gone well. Peter appreciated the "Maxie move" to try to smooth things over.

Peter picked up the check, but Maxie grabbed it out of his hand. She wondered if Peter wanted to leave Port Charles, since he'd mentioned that he had moved around a lot and not stayed in any one place for too long. Peter admitted that he had no real friends because he'd never stuck around anywhere, but he had been getting a life in Port Charles.

Nina got to the police station and saw Curtis. He advised her that there was no record of Peter before the age of 21, and he was not in the Witness Protection Program either. He thought that there could be both legitimate and illegitimate reasons for records being suppressed. He wanted Nina to keep her suspicions to herself and especially not say anything to Maxie or Peter about her doubts. Nina admitted that she sort of already had said something.

Anna and Emma arrived at the last of the boarding schools on their list in Switzerland. Anna was unhappy when Robert showed up behind them, although Emma was thrilled to see her grandfather. As they waited in the headmistress' office, the little girl announced that she was happy to help and had loved pretending to be interested in the various boarding schools they'd visited in order to try to find something on Henrik. Robert wondered if Anna would give up if they found nothing relating to Henrik.

Anna accused Robert of trying to control her, and she insisted that she was not obsessed with Henrik. She wanted Robert to take Emma and keep the headmistress busy so that Anna could hack into the computer. Emma noticed that the computer was already up and running, so Anna wouldn't need to hack into it. The headmistress arrived just in time to see Emma by the computer behind her desk, and she demanded to know what the little girl was doing. Anna asked why the woman had been so harsh, but a wide-eyed Emma jumped right in and confessed to looking at the operating system that the school had been using.

The headmistress was impressed and calmed down. She introduced herself as Madame Levoie, and Robert introduced his family. He was Roger Everett-Ashton, the little girl was Amelia, and his wife was Alice. Emma stated that she loved computers and the theater, and Robert mentioned a large contribution they'd be willing to make if the little girl attended the school. Emma declared that she was ready for boarding school, and she wanted to see the dormitory. The headmistress revealed that the recruiter would be there shortly to take them on a tour, but the family was disappointed. Anna clarified that the heads of the other schools had personally taken them on tour.

Anna and Robert declared that they couldn't wait for the recruiter, and they got up to go. Emma announced that she had enjoyed the last school they had visited. The headmistress agreed to cancel her meeting and take the family on the tour. As they headed to the door, Anna announced that she was feeling dizzy and, due to her rare blood disorder, would like to stay behind and rest. She urged the others to take the tour without her, and once they were gone, she rushed to the computer.

Anna searched the records, but without much success. Suddenly, she heard voices. Everyone had returned because the headmistress had insisted on checking up on Anna. Enthusiastically, Emma related that they'd seen the library, dormitory, and dining room. Anna stated that she still didn't feel very well, but Emma insisted that they'd seen enough. Anna was beside herself and wanted to return to the computer. Emma stated that she had gotten what she'd needed, and they could leave.

Once they left the office, Anna disclosed that she'd needed more time. Emma revealed that while Robert had kept the headmistress busy in the library, Emma had found a program from a Julius Caesar play that had probably been performed during Henrik's time. She wondered if the person named Henri Francois, who had played Brutus, could be Henrik.

"Does it not bother you that our granddaughter is so cunning and can lie her way out of a tight spot so easily?" Robert asked Anna. Anna called it a useful talent, and Emma suggested that it was in her DNA. "I come from a long line of spies," Emma said. Anna noted that Emma did have a "flair" for it.

Anna studied a photo on her phone and agreed that the date of the play matched up with Henrik possibly having been there. Emma stated that the headmistress had said that all students had been encouraged to be in the theater, and Caesar was similar to Cesar. Anna was sure she could find Henrik in the photo.
