Kim arrived at Charlie's, and Julian invited her to sit. As she told Julian that she wanted to try their specialty, the avocado toast, Julian's chef approached. He pulled Julian aside and informed him that their entire delivery of produce had arrived rotten. Julian had an idea of how that had happened.
Anna looked at Faison's WSB file and spoke into a recorder about Faison's two sons. Just then, there was a knock on the door. Anna grabbed her gun and cautiously approached the door. When she opened it, Liesl fell into the doorway. She got up and dusted herself off, and Anna realized that Liesl was drunk. Liesl sauntered in and demanded to know where Faison was. Anna insisted that Faison wasn't there, as she would have turned him in to the WSB had he shown up.
Anna wanted to "expedite the process," so she wondered if Liesl knew how to reach Faison. Liesl revealed that Faison had stopped responding to her. Liesl knew that Faison would be "coming for his son," for Liesl, and then for Anna. A few minutes later, Anna got Liesl a glass of water so that she could sober up and help Anna locate Faison. Liesl responded that she only wanted to protect Nathan, who had no idea what Faison was capable of.
Anna reminded Liesl that they were on the same side, but Liesl maintained that she knew nothing. Anna asked why Liesl had kept Nathan a secret from Faison. Liesl explained that Faison would have fashioned Nathan in his image and destroyed Nathan if he'd resisted. She knew because she'd seen how Faison had treated his other son, Heinrich. Faison had sent Heinrich off to boarding school as soon as possible and really considered him an annoyance. Anna wondered why Faison had treated his son like that after wanting a son so badly. "The boy was his son, but not yours," Liesl replied.
Liesl knew that Faison would want revenge on Nathan for his "public rejection," and he would want to punish Liesl for lying. Anna promised that Faison was done hurting people. A short while later, Liesl awoke on Anna's couch and found a note on her lap. In the note, Anna advised her not to leave, because she had reason to be afraid. Liesl muttered that she could take care of herself and left the house. Just outside the door, she was hit over the head. When she was unconscious on the ground, her attacker took a cigarette case out and picked out a cigarette.
Laura took down her posters at Charlie's and told Alexis that her campaign was over. She was Spencer's legal guardian, and she needed to put his welfare first. She thought that someone would step up and take her place. Alexis feared that Ned would run unopposed.
At the hospital, Kevin ran into Valentin while turning a corner and dropped his armful of files. Valentin helped Kevin pick them up while scolding him for texting and walking. Valentin revealed that he was there to talk to Monica about taking Laura's place on the hospital board. "Haven't you taken enough from Laura?" Kevin wondered.
At the hospital, Alexis assured Laura that she would take care of a press release. Laura instructed Alexis to stress that, while she was dropping out of the election for personal reasons, she was still committed to preserving Charles Street. She continued that people who supported that should vote "no on measure eight." Alexis thought that Laura would have made a great mayor and hoped that the voters of Port Charles had a choice.
When Alexis was gone, Laura noticed Kevin and Valentin arguing. Kevin thought that Valentin already had everything he wanted and wondered why he also needed to be on the hospital board. Valentin explained that his family had donated a lot to the hospital, and he believed he could offer some needed expertise. "As a thief and a kidnapper?" Kevin questioned as Laura joined him. Valentin replied that he had experience in logistics and finances, two things the hospital needed.
Kevin explained to Laura that Valentin wanted her seat on the board, and she wondered why he thought that he would be welcome. "My willingness to write big checks," he responded. Laura told him that he couldn't buy respect. Valentin stormed away from Laura and Kevin. Kevin couldn't believe that Spencer had broken both of his legs. Laura was planning to fly to France the next day, and Kevin promised to start rescheduling his patients. Laura thought that his patients needed him, so he promised to visit as often as he could.
Regarding the election, Laura informed Kevin that she would have to withdraw, but she hoped that the replacement candidate she had in mind would step up. "Me?!" a shocked Kevin asked. She thought he would be a natural and urged him to think it over.
Sonny told Jason that once they drew Faison out, it was best to kill him, but it wouldn't give Jason back what he'd lost. Jason confided that, while he didn't approve of Carly's methods, his time with Sam on New Year's Eve had given them a chance to be together with no pressure and no one else's opinions. Jason remembered her saying that she'd changed in the past five years, but Sonny didn't think so. He knew that she'd love Jason forever, just like he loved her.
A short while later, Jason was gone, and Sonny told Spinelli on the phone not to email Sinclair again. He didn't want the author to think that they were too eager and become suspicious. He advised Spinelli to deal with the technology, and he would deal with the negotiations. When Sonny was off the phone, Julian entered and asked Sonny to stop the harassment. He explained about his rotted delivery, and Sonny commented that the neighborhood would be better off without Julian. Julian stated that Jim was the problem, and if Sonny wasn't careful, he would become a stranger in his own city.
Later, Anna arrived and found Sonny on the phone, trying to get information about Jim. When he was off the phone, Anna wanted to talk about Faison. Sonny offered to "trade notes" but didn't want to have to worry about incriminating himself. Anna didn't care how Sonny got his information and believed that, in Faison's case, the end justified the means. Anna explained her conversation with Liesl about Heinrich. Sonny suggested using Heinrich to get to Faison. "Like hell you will," Anna shot back.
Sam returned home with her wedding dress in a garment bag. She informed Drew that the florist would be there soon, and so would the movers to move some furniture out of the way for their homebound wedding that night. A short while later, the doorbell rang, and Sam ran down the stairs in a robe. Expecting workers, she called out that she and Drew were running late, but she was surprised to open the door to Jason.
Jason entered and told her that he had something important to tell her and Drew. Right on cue, Drew descended the stairs. Jason informed them that he and Sonny were close to getting Faison out of hiding, so he wanted to give them a heads-up that things could get dangerous. Drew wanted to hear the plan, but he revealed that it wasn't the time, as he and Sam were getting married that night. Jason advised them to take the kids on their honeymoon and stay away for a little while. Jason congratulated the couple and left.
A short while later, Drew was on the phone, asking someone to messenger tickets to his home. When he ended the call, he revealed that he was taking Sam and the kids to Tahiti. He claimed to want to have a good time with his family, but she believed he wanted to get away because of Faison. He reasoned that he would always choose Sam over danger. While she was excited, she reminded him that they still weren't ready for the wedding, so they went upstairs.
Later, Drew answered the door to the messenger. Drew signed for his package and checked to make sure all the tickets were there. He wondered aloud if he'd ever been to Tahiti before. Upstairs, Sam looked at her dress. She sat down at her vanity, took a deep breath, and thought about her and Jason's wedding.
Jason was playing pool at the Floating Rib when Kim entered and asked to join. As they played, she remarked on how much he looked like Drew had looked before, but she observed that their personalities were completely different. She wondered if he'd tried to get back home for the five years he'd been gone. He admitted that he could only account for the last six months of that time, and he hadn't been able to believe so much time had passed when he'd returned.
Kim asked how Jason dealt with Sam being with someone else. He replied that he trusted her to make the right decision for herself and her children. He mentioned that Sam and Drew were getting married that night, which flustered Kim. He apologized for blindsiding her and knew that sometimes the heart took a while to catch up to what the head already knew. "How's your heart? Still catching up?" she asked.
Julian entered the bar and asked to buy dinner for Kim, since he hadn't been able to provide her with dinner at his own bar. She wanted to finish her game with Jason first, but he told her to go ahead, and he sat down at the bar. Julian was thankful that Sam was with Drew and not Jason. He explained that, while he and Sam were estranged, he still worried and cared. He told a shocked Kim that Jason was "a mob enforcer. A professional killer." She looked toward Jason, who drank a beer at the bar while remembering his wedding to Sam.
