Jerry pays Ric a little visit, Helena pays Nikoklas a little visit and Carly's 'little visitor' is over a week late.
Helena tells the crowd gathered at General Hospital that they should enjoy the improvements funded with the Cassadine money while they can. Then she speaks directly to Nikolas and tells him that she is looking forward to their reunion. As the lights go back up, Nikolas tells everyone that he had no idea that his grandmother was back. Edward and Monica want to get Rebecca out of there as soon as possible and she agrees, but only because she can see how upset Nikolas is.
When they're gone, Alexis lets Nikolas know that she suspects that Rebecca is part of Helena's plan. "How else can you explain a woman who looks exactly like Emily and just happens to end up in your proximity?" Nikolas believes that it's too far-fetched, but Alexis warns him to beware of when Rebecca finally warms up to him.
After Patrick is chastised by Robin for making sure that she's okay, he leaves her alone. When Kelly joins her Robin asks if she can prescribe something different for her than the antidepressants that Dr. Brown ordered. Kelly tells her that Dr. Brown's professional opinion needs to be respected and that she needs to give the meds time to work. Later, Robin finds Patrick talking with Elizabeth about his problems and Robin explodes at him for not respecting her privacy. The entire lobby is listening to their dirty laundry. Finally, Robin pushes Patrick far enough for him to explode with, "You're the one who drove to Rochester and slept with some stranger!"
Jason is over at Sonny's house talking to Claudia. She explains that she got close to Ric a few months ago in an effort to team up against Anthony. She says that he didn't let go after she married Sonny and that he's been pressuring her to get dirt on the business as a kind of revenge. Jason is listening intently as she says that Ric is the one who's responsible for Michael's shooting. Jason reminds her that it was a hit on Sonny and at the time she had more reason to want Sonny dead. Claudia challenges him to find proof! Jason assures her that he will and if he finds out that it was her, she's going to pay. The second he's gone, Claudia reaches for her home pregnancy test.
Luke and Tracy are commiserating over martinis at The Haunted Star. He tells her about his visit from Lucky and says that he's not sure what happened to the son he was always so close to. He can't help but to draw comparisons to Ethan whom he barely knows but feels more akin to. Tracy tells him that Ethan could be pulling the biggest scam of his life on him and points out the coincidence that he knows Holly Sutton. Ethan comes in and asks why she's so threatened by the guy who once knew 'Luke's English Rose'? While on the subject, Tracy asks what Holly and he talked about when they happened to cross paths. Before Luke can object to their arguing, Lucky rushes in to tell Luke that Helena is back in town!
After Lucky leaves and Tracy goes home to make sure that her family isn't giving Rebecca the keys to the kingdom, Luke tells Ethan that they need to crack out the good booze because Helena will likely be by shortly. "We have this sick psycho sexual connection that involves scorpions and piano wire," he explains. Instead, it's Alexis who drops by. She accepts a drink and asks Luke for his thoughts about Rebecca's connection to Helena. Luke says that she could be a clone of Emily if he knows anything about Helena.
Over at The Metro Court, Olivia reminds Carly that her period is already late and the sooner she finds out if she's pregnant the sooner they can get answers. Carly doesn't want to deal with it yet and says that she has too many things on her plate right now.
Later, Diane stops by to tell Carly that the plans for their new home are being held up by a zoning committee. As they talk, Carly suffers another dizzy spell. Max comes in and notices how pale Carly is. After she goes upstairs to lie down, he tells Diane that she was that pale when she was pregnant with Morgan. They start to speculate on the baby's paternity and guess that if Jason shows up that means Carly is worried that Sonny is the father. Sure enough, Jason shows up.
Ric is in his office telling Johnny to hand over the DVD, but Johnny says that it was already gone when he got there. Ric calls a fellow lawyer named Claire in, who assures him that the DVD was logged according to procedure and locked in the safe. After Johnny leaves, Ric urges her to remember everyone who came into his office today and tells her that his life depends on getting the DVD back. Since they are old friends, he tells her about Michael's shooting and what's on the DVD. Slowly, she grasps the situation.
Johnny goes to Sonny's house and tells Claudia that the DVD was missing from Ric's safe. He tells her that Ric's story is blown, but Claudia worries about who has it! He tells her that she doesn't have to get pregnant anymore, but she says that she wants to.
Ric quickly slips into his front door and bolts the door behind him. He turns and finds Jerry sitting in the dark waiting for him.
Rebecca has slipped away from the Quartermaine mansion and found Nikolas. She says that Edward and Monica filled her in on how awfully his grandmother has treated him through the years and that she's going to stand by him. She accompanies him to Wyndemere, all the while Nikolas tells her that Helena knows his home like the back of her hand and comes and goes as she pleases. At that moment Helena appears, takes note of Rebecca and asks, "Who is this amazing creature?"
