Nina walked into the cabin and tried to wake Peter up. She thought he was dead until he finally struggled to open his eyes. He exclaimed that he had been in pain, hadn't eaten, and had passed out. Nina accused him of lying about the flash drive because she'd checked, and it hadn't been found. Peter insisted he'd had it when Liesl had rendered him unconscious and dragged him to the cabin.
Nina thought Peter should just confess, and no one would try to kill him. Peter argued that his confession wouldn't be admissible because it would have been made under duress. He stated that only Liesl and Nina would face charges. He believed that Liesl would kill him after his confession. Peter thought that Nina knew he was right, but she accused him of trying to get into her head. She didn't believe him.
Peter was certain that Liesl wanted revenge, and she wanted to blame him for his father's crimes. He was aware of Liesl's suffering as well as Nina's, but at least Nina still had a career, family, and life. She would lose everything if she continued to help Liesl and not him. Nina looked thoughtful as she considered Peter's words.
Anna and Finn sat at a table in the Floating Rib. Finn pointed out that they'd successfully hidden all day long while Anna retorted that they'd been "hanging out." They made out until Liesl walked in and over to their table. "Look at the lovebirds," Liesl said. She suggested that they show proper behavior in public because it wasn't Inspiration Point. She walked off, and Anna and Finn both declared they had something to do.
Anna walked over to Liesl at the bar and asked if she had something to say to her. Liesl noted resentfully that Anna seemed happy and had been able to go on with her life. She criticized Anna's public behavior, and Anna replied that she was sorry for Liesl's loss. Liesl accused Anna of patronizing her, but Anna declared that she had been trying to reach out to Liesl.
Liesl reminded Anna that they were not on the same side, and her lies had led to Nathan's death. Liesl said that Anna was her enemy, although she agreed that Nathan would want her to forgive Anna. Liesl added that they had something in common. Neither of them would see their sons again.
Anna was confused, but Liesl clarified that Henrik had fled Port Charles. Anna refuted that and stated that no one knew his whereabouts. Liesl doubted he'd return. Anna thought that Peter could have a decent future, but Liesl thought that Anna was delusional because Peter had to face his punishment. "We still have our own score to settle," Liesl said.
Valentin barged into Nina's office at Crimson as Nina's secretary tried to stop him. He declared that he wanted to surprise Nina, and the woman thought that Nina was a lucky woman. Shortly after, Finn walked in and announced that he'd been looking for Valentin.
Finn revealed that he and Anna were together, and Valentin was happy but was not sure why Finn wanted to tell him. Finn accused Valentin of playing God with Anna's son's life and other lives. "Get involved with Anna's life again, and it'll be the last mistake you ever make," Finn threatened. Valentin couldn't believe that Finn had threatened to kill him. Finn argued that that had been Valentin's own interpretation.
Valentin warned Finn to "tread lightly" because he wasn't an amateur like Finn. The doctor added that he had access to things that could make it look like Valentin had passed away, but Valentin replied that he and Anna were familiar with taking lives. Finn suggested that Valentin focus on his own marriage "or whatever's left of it." He walked out.
Liesl returned to the cabin and was surprised to see Nina, who wondered if she and her aunt were on the "same page." Nina wanted to make certain that Liesl wouldn't hurt Peter. Liesl responded that she would do what she had to do, and she said that Peter was whiny and would say anything to turn the women against each other.
Nina declared that she wouldn't help Liesl if she were violent, but Liesl wanted Nina's trust. "Unlike Henrik, I'll only stab you in the front, not in the back," Liesl stated as she walked toward Peter.
"Alone at last, " Liesl declared after Nina had gone. She wore a Floating Rib plastic bib and pulled a BBQ sandwich out of a bag. She described it to Peter, who was desperate for something to eat. Liesl took a big bite of the sandwich as Peter salivated. She noted that she would enjoy watching Peter crawl to "death's door."
Nina returned to her office and heard Middle Eastern music playing from the other side of the door. She opened it and found the office decorated in Middle Eastern décor. "Welcome back to Morocco, darling," Valentin said enthusiastically. Nina was speechless.
Finn returned to the Floating Rib. Anna explained to him that she understood that Liesl had been grieving, but the woman had said something peculiar. She thought that Liesl might know something about Peter. Finn related his experience, and Anna couldn't believe that he'd confronted Valentin. "He's lethal," Anna proclaimed. She had just let Finn into her life, and she didn't want to lose him. "Certainly not to Valentin," Anna added. Finn assured Anna that he wasn't going anywhere, and the two began to kiss again.
At Charlie's Pub, Julian made sure he understood Alexis' request. She wanted to go over the details of their life together in front of her therapist. Alexis confirmed it, and Julian thought it could be too intimate. He wanted to ask Kim first. Alexis was surprised to learn that Julian and Kim were in the "asking" stage. Julian admitted that things were going well, and he didn't want to make the same mistakes he'd made in the past. Alexis thought that she needed to grow as Julian had.
After Alexis had gone, Kim and Julian discussed Alexis' request. Kim thought it sounded like couples' therapy, and Julian agreed. He said it was all about Alexis "making sense of past relationships." He had wanted Kim to know, and she appreciated it, although she didn't think he needed her permission. Julian could think of other things he'd rather do -- like darning his socks -- and he was afraid they'd go around and around.
At the hospital, Mike and Sonny got the word from Francesca that Mike's medications had seemed to be having a positive effect. Mike wanted to set the nurse up with Michael, and Sonny awkwardly interceded. He suggested that Mike talk to Michael at dinner. Francesca had to get back to work. Sonny suggested a trip to the old neighborhood before dinner.
Kim had to shower and get ready for work. She urged Julian to make his own decision, and she would support him no matter what. As she left, she ran into Mike and Sonny, and they exchanged greetings. Mike was eager to see the new establishment, and Sonny stopped at the bar to order his coffee. He expected it on the house along with Julian's July payment for his coffee supply.
Julian delivered the coffee to Sonny's table, where Sonny was short with the bar owner. Mike assumed it was a good story, but Sonny wanted to talk about other things -- like Croton. Mike couldn't remember ever being in Croton, and Sonny tried to jar his memory. He mentioned that Mike had gotten him out of trouble in a field, but Mike drew a blank. He looked around and decided to get up and look at the old photos on the walls.
Brad arrived to thank Julian for the information he'd provided to him and Lucas on family histories. Brad knew that Julian wasn't happy with the agreement to have no communication while Brad and Lucas pursued the adoption. He added that he knew nothing about the woman who would be giving birth, while she even knew his school GPA. Brad stressed that he and Lucas were taking a "leap of faith" that the woman would not change her mind before the 30-day grace period was up.
Brad mentioned that Alexis was his attorney, and she knew all about the pertinent facts of the adoption including information on the pregnant woman. He was confident that she would look after them. Brad said that Julian's research had meant a lot to Lucas, and he left. Julian gave Sonny his payment envelope. Mike stared at a photo of a man and identified him as Charlie Delaney. Sonny stated that he didn't know him, but Mike recalled having known the man when Sonny had been about 18 years old.
Back at the hospital, a doctor stopped at the nurses' station to ask Elizabeth about some labs. Kiki was standing there and offered her help, but the doctor refused. Kiki noted that Bensch had advised her that the male doctors would be uncomfortable around her, and it hadn't been the first time. Elizabeth was sure there had to be other victims.
Lulu walked in and told Elizabeth and Kiki that while her article had received great attention, she hadn't been able to locate any other claims or victims against Bensch. Lulu confirmed that Amy had volunteered to talk about sexism at the hospital. Kiki was afraid that she would not have a chance to win her suit. Francesca stood nearby at the nurses' station while the others chatted, and she listened intently.
Lulu promised that Bensch's days would be over. She received a phone call from her editor, who needed her attention, and Elizabeth had to run a file to Kim's office. Once they were gone, Francesca walked over to Kiki. She expressed her admiration for Kiki after having read the article, and Kiki was appreciative. Francesca returned to her desk, Lulu finished her phone call, and Alexis found the young women. She asked if they had heard from any other victims. Kiki was sure that someone else would step forward. Alexis stressed that they needed to have "corroborating witnesses" because she was afraid "there may be no way to win."
Kiki grew upset, and Alexis tried to reassure her. Lulu thought they could let a jury decide but Alexis stated that it boiled down to a "he said, she said." Bensch could turn around and sue Kiki for defamation. She was behind Kiki and wanted to let her know where they stood. Alexis wanted Lulu and Kiki to think about their next move. She left, and Lulu stated that a lot of women would thank Kiki for what she had done.
"Someone could come forward about Bensch before you have to make a decision about the suit," Lulu said. "Someone is," Francesca declared as she walked back to the women. Francesca admitted that Dr. Bensch had harassed her. Kiki grabbed her hands.
Elizabeth sat in Kim's office. Kim was embarrassed but she asked how Elizabeth and Franco dealt with each other's exes. Elizabeth joked that it was "mutual coexistence." Kim admitted that she had been having issues with Julian's ex. She explained the situation, and Elizabeth declared that Kim should have been honest with her feelings about the couples' therapy. Kim thought it sounded strange and intrusive.
Elizabeth agreed that Kim didn't want to sound jealous, but it was a normal feeling. Kim stated that she was out of practice, but she'd learned her lesson. She didn't want to mention it at that point because Julian had decided against it anyway.
Julian got off the elevator and ran right into Alexis. He was there to give Kevin his decision about the therapy. He'd decided to do it, after all.
• “I’m not an invalid,” Mike shouts.
• Carly can’t make it without Jason.
• Sam thinks Valentin knows more.
• “Because of you I’ve had to take justice into my own hands,” Nina yells at Valentin.
