Klein yelled at his two henchmen for letting Patient 6 get away, especially with their guns and money. One of the men explained that Patient 6 had caught them off guard, but they would know what to expect "next time." Klein hoped there would be a next time, as the patient knew the city better than all of them. He needed Patient 6 stopped before he reached his "dangerous friends," as his client wouldn't be happy. Klein suggested that they "switch tactics."
A short while later, one of the henchmen was gone, and Klein discussed with the other man how to get ahead of Patient 6. He thought it would work to take someone the patient cared about and "wait for him to show."
Olivia and Ned arrived at ELQ, wishing they were still on their Italian honeymoon. Olivia promised to return after she picked up Leo's prescription. They shared a kiss, and she left. Ned eyed Michael's office door.
In his office, Michael was on the phone, talking about a deal. There was static on the call, making it impossible to hear, so Michael promised to talk to the person at another time. As he hung up, there was a knock on the door, and Ned entered. Michael welcomed his kin back to the office after a long honeymoon. Ned talked about his ideas for new programs that would involve cutting back on some of Michael's green initiatives. He believed that the company was neglecting other good opportunities. Michael didn't like the idea, but Ned gently told Michael that he'd have to learn when to cut his losses. Michael had a board meeting at the hospital, so he left.
At the hospital, Monica was on the phone when Olivia appeared. Monica ended her call to ask Olivia about the extravagant Halloween decorations around the Quartermaine estate. Olivia thought it would be something nice to do for Leo and for her and Monica's grandchildren. Monica wanted to talk to Olivia about boundaries. She was happy that Olivia was comfortable, but Monica reminded Olivia that she was a guest in the house. Olivia reminded Monica that Alan had given her the house and run off.
A short while later, Michael entered the hospital and found Monica. He commented on Jason's surprise announcement. Monica replied that she was just happy he'd found something stable. Monica's phone rang, and she answered it to the secretary of the hospital board. She heard that the meeting was canceled, but she was forced to hang up due to static on the line. She explained the week-long problem to Michael, who offered to take it to the technology department at ELQ.
Olivia returned to ELQ, and Ned filled her in on his short and disappointing meeting with Michael. He figured he'd have to, as a former CEO, make peace with taking orders from his "20-something cousin." Olivia demanded to know why he would make peace with something like that. Ned wondered what was wrong, and she admitted to projecting. She filled Ned in on her conversation with Monica. She thought that they both needed to assert themselves, and Ned needed to "take back what's yours."
Griffin revealed to Ava that he'd left the priesthood. She expressed happiness for him, as long as he was at peace, but she wondered what that meant for them. Griffin didn't know, and he admitted that the only real commitment he'd made in his life had been to the church. She agreed that it was probably wise for him not to jump into a relationship and told him that there were no hard feelings. While he knew it would be easier to walk away, he admitted that all he wanted to do was kiss her.
Ava told Griffin that he'd made her feel wanted when she hadn't felt like she deserved it, but she suggested that they'd been using each other to "feel alive." She told him not to stop from kissing her "on my account," and they shared a passionate kiss. The broke apart and agreed that they should go no further while "sorting things out." They kissed again and made their way to the couch while undressing each other.
Later, Ava and Griffin sat on the floor under a blanket. He put his arm her around and confided that it had been better and "different than last time." They kissed, and she reminded him that it was getting late. She added that him staying over would imply a commitment, and he tried to hide his disappointment. They got dressed, and he figured he would get up early the next morning to "figure out the logistics of my new life."
Griffin thanked Ava for helping him figure out what he really wanted. He offered to call her, and she reminded him that they were keeping it casual. They said goodnight, and he left. On opposite sides of the door, both smiled.
Maxie arrived at Sam's, and she was borderline offended that Sam hadn't told her about buying Derek Wells Media. "Anything else I should know?" she wondered. Maxie had heard about the party and had taken the liberty of getting Sam a dress. Sam called Maxie a lifesaver and went to try the dress on. Since Maxie had done Sam a favor, she asked for one in return. She wondered if Sam or Jason could order Nina to rehire her at Crimson. As she walked out in a beautiful blue dress, Sam told Maxie that Crimson operated autonomously.
Noticing Sam's leather jacket, Maxie suggested that, with Sam as the head of a major media company, it was time to retire the jacket. Sam refused to get rid of the jacket, but she did promise to ask Jason about talking to Nina. Maxie complained to Sam about all the obnoxious visits to her apartment from Man Landers fans. Sam advised Maxie to embrace the attention. "You're a genius!" Maxie exclaimed. Maxie told Sam to hang the dress up immediately to avoid wrinkles, and she ran out of the apartment.
A short while later, Sam was dressed. As she picked up the jacket and put it on, one of Klein's henchmen prepared to break into her home.
At the hospital, Amy was just finishing up a phone call when Nathan approached her. She excitedly divulged that the rest of the book advance had arrived, so all of Chet's treatments were covered. Speaking of Man Landers, Nathan told her that he believed it was time to shut down the blog. He explained that it was hard on Maxie, and he refused to put his marriage on the line. Amy thanked him for going as far as he had. "Some things aren't meant to last," she said with a tearful smile.
Nathan hoped that Amy would continue writing, because she was good at it. She had to get back to work, but she promised to call Quinn the next day. Nathan walked away and found Maxie. He told her that he had news she would enjoy, but she would have to wait for it. Maxie informed him that she also had news, but then he would have to wait as well. Amy watched sadly as the happy couple got into the elevator.
Jason refused to let Sonny go to the footbridge alone, because he believed it was a trap.
At the footbridge, Patient 6 quietly hoped Sonny would meet him. He saw headlights approaching and hid in the bushes. He watched as Sonny walked onto the bridge with a gun drawn. The patient was about to reveal himself when he saw Jason follow Sonny onto the bridge. Sonny observed that no one else was there. Patient 6 turned to walk away, but there was a man standing behind him, pointing a gun to the patient's head.
The man demanded that Patient 6 put his hands on his head. The patient lunged at the man, and they fought over the gun. The patient finally overpowered the man, but there was a shot fired as they struggled over the gun. As the patient pointed the gun at the man, who revealed himself to be one of Sonny's guards, Jason ordered Sonny to go back to the car. When Sonny was gone, Jason began to investigate. He went into the bushes and found the guard, clearly beaten up. The guard explained that a guy had jumped him, but he wondered why the man had let him go.
When Sonny, Jason, and the guards were gone, Patient 6 stood on the bridge. He looked out at the water, thinking about all he'd seen and learned since he'd arrived in Port Charles.
Jason and Sonny returned to Sonny's house and discussed the incident. Sonny thought that, if killing him had been the goal, he could have easily been taken out while on the bridge. Michael entered the house and congratulated Jason on buying Derek Wells Media. He told Sonny about his and Monica's phones being plagued by static for a week or so. ELQ's technology department had found spy software on both phones.
Sonny wanted Brick to look at the phones, as Brick believed that someone was targeting him. Michael wondered why Monica's phone would be tapped if that was the case. Jason blurted out, "Sonny's not the target. I am."
