At home, Curtis attempts to stand up from his wheelchair. He is able to fully stand, when Stella arrives, spots him and asks how long he’s been able to do this. He explains he’s been able to take a few steps, but needs practice. Stella wonders why he hasn’t told the family? He planned to tell them, just when he was better able to walk. Curtis just doesn’t want his family to witness him struggle with baby steps, he wants to be further along. Stella is beyond thrilled and proud of him, and she wants the family to experience this joy too. She informs him that they are all on this journey with him, and to let Portia have some of this joy.

Stella reminds him a secret almost ended his marriage before it started, and he needs to ask himself, if he was Portia, wouldn’t he want to know? Portia arrives, and Stella makes herself scarce and takes off.

Portia has good news and reveals Dante woke up. Curtis agrees that is good news. She remembers when he woke up after being shot, and knows Olivia and Sam are feeling the same way she did. Portia heads to the kitchen to get some cake Stella mentioned before she took off.

When Portia returns, she finds Curtis standing by the fireplace and is stunned. He takes a few steps towards her, while leaning on the fireplace for support. When he stumbles, she takes his hands and helps him. He walks into her arms, they embrace, and kiss.

At Crimson, Drew shows up to see Nina, skating by her new assistant Madison, to see what she’s up to. She’s been pulling Crimson back from the brink as Carly did major damage. Drew says Carly did fine, and there was a bump in circulation as people were interested in seeing what she did. She says he can bring Carly back then and she’ll walk. Drew knows she won’t, she is a rich spoiled brat who has everything money can buy, except love and this magazine. He says the magazine is his, and she wants it. She rubs it in his face that he can’t run it without her, and Carly is long gone.

Drew says they could continue playing chicken, or they could focus on getting the fall issue out. Nina says they aren’t getting the fall issue out, she is, she’s the driving force here. Drew is open to the possibility of working with her so they can both get something they want. Nina brings up his relationship with Carly ending and can’t believe he doesn’t want payback. He asks, “What has payback ever gotten you?” He says that is her problem, when things don’t go the way she wants, she focuses on the wrong things. She says right now she has a sanctimonious boss who wants to lecture her when she should be working. Drew says he forgot she also likes to play the victim, and reminds her of everything she’s lost. She reminds him of the same and doesn’t understand why he’s still defending Carly.

Drew says he’s trying to move forward and asks if she hasn’t heard that living well is the best revenge. He says Carly never wanted to be the editor, he talked her into it. He doesn’t want Carly to suffer, and he wins when he focuses on himself. He says if she could do that, then maybe she could be happy. Nina says she was happy, she had a job, a family, a husband, and now all she has is Crimson, which is all she had to begin with. Drew reminds her she had some responsibility for what happened to her. They argue about her keeping the truth about Sonny from his family, and turning him and Carly into the SEC, and he points out how she takes no accountability. Nina screams Carly committed a crime and wasn’t held accountable, and now she’s the one permanently exiled by everyone she loves.

Nina and Drew at Crimson GH

Nina says she might almost believe he is a new, kinder, gentler Drew. However, she thinks the rage he feels still might be in there. If there was a button he could push and Jason would disappear, and everything went back to how it was and nobody else would know, would he push it? They are interrupted by Madison, who says an email for her new wellness piece is waiting for her. She decides to get back to work, and he asks what this new piece is on. She says it’s about feeling well, it’s a buzz word in the industry of health and fitness right now. He asks her to forward it to him as he’d like to read it. She forwards it, and he says maybe they can work together after all. Drew leaves, and she says, “Stranger things have happened.”

Dex arrives at the PCPD to see Detective Bennet. They head into the interrogation room, and Bennet explains Anna asked him to interview him about the police academy. Bennet goes over his record in the army, working as a security and soldier for hire, but notices he left Sonny as an employer off his resume. Dex did as he doesn’t consider it official employment. Bennet asks for clarification. Dex explains he realizes Sonny’s world wasn’t for him, and he worked to get out of Sonny’s employment and he planned to leave Port Charles, but instead of run, Anna suggests he become a cop.

Bennet and Dex talk GH

Bennet asks why he wants to be a cop? Dex says he misses the feeling he had in the army, of doing good and serving others. Bennet knows he took an oath to serve his country and constitution, is he prepared to take the same as a police officer? Dex states he is, and he also liked being part of something bigger in the army, it gave his life meaning, to protect freedom. Working for Sonny was to make money, and a stupid reason to die. Bennet still has concerns about his time with Sonny. Dex says it’s why he wants this job, to make up for what he’s done, to do better, and to have a purpose.

Jason stops by Anna’s office, per her request. She tells him that even though he’s not facing capital murder charges, he’s still in trouble. She believes they have some mutual goals, and that’s Pikeman. She has a source that Sonny was working with them but stopped, so what can he tell her about Pikeman. He can’t talk about it. Anna says if this is about Cates, well he’s on his way over.

Anna has a proposal GH

Cates arrives, and doesn’t know why Jason is here. Anna said she invited him, and Jason explains she knows he’s working for him. John says that violates their agreement. Jason rants that Cates lied to him, he lied that he knew him in high school, he knew his mother and let her believe he was dead. John doesn’t give a damn how he feels, he only cares that Jason gets this job done.

John Anna and Jason GH

Anna says Jason’s cover is blown, which is why Cates explains he wants Jason to stay here and draw Pikeman out. He believes they’ll send someone to take him out, and they’ll nab that person and convince them to turn the tables on their boss. Cates asks if Jason cooperates, or they charge Carly with RICO violations and criminal conspiracy. Anna is stunned Jason says he’ll do what he wants if he leaves Carly alone. Cates has no interest in Carly if Jason does his job.

John and Cates GH

Cates tells Anna this is an FBI operation, so she is not involved. She reminds him this is her jurisdiction. Cates informs her that she’s WSB, and so is Pikeman. She wonders if she is part of his investigation. He says Pikeman’s ties with the WSB go back to her time there in the early eighties. Anna yells that she had nothing to do with Pikeman, and to ask Jack, unless he thinks she sent him to Petionville to take over Pikeman. Cates wants Pikeman, everyone involved, and wants to take them down. Anna wants that too, but how do they do it?

Cates and Jason GH

Cates hopes Jason can get them an answer. Jason knows a lot about Pikeman, but doesn’t know who is in charge, but agrees they’ll want to shut him up. Cates is sorry Jason has to be bait, but the mission is still about shutting Pikeman down. Cates excuses himself. Anna asks if Jason is okay with this? Jason says it has to be done. Anna realizes why he’s doing this now, it’s to save Carly. Jason tells Anna that Carly can’t know. She asks why? He doesn’t answer and walks out.
