Give Yourself To The Experience.Friday, July 23 2010
Both Franco and Warren's time runs out.
Nikolas, Lucky and Maxie see Franco's video in the hospital who tells them to give themselves over to the experience. He adds they have no choice if they want to find the baby. Franco mentions the number 66 and Nikolas realizes his son's ID bracelet included the number 66 and that's why Franco took him.
Maxie comes to Shirley's room, but learns from Elizabeth she passed away. Maxie then updates Elizabeth on what's going on in the rest of the hospital.
Elizabeth finds Nikolas and Lucky and watches the video of Franco with them. She's not sure what his cryptic comments mean and wonders what he's done with her son. Lucky says they need to figure out what they do know and thinks they need to find anything in the hospital with the number 66 on it. Nikolas tells Elizabeth they can handle it if she wants to go sit with Shirley. She lets him know Shirley is gone, but hopes she's looking over Aiden until they can find him.
Near the nurses' station, Warren shoots Mac and Ethan. Michael gets protective and Kristina cowers as he turns his attention to her. Before Warren can shoot Kristina, Mac garners enough strength to shoot him from behind and then falls back to the floor.
Carly and Patrick hear the shots and Carly is desperate to get to Michael. Patrick agrees to go with her in case someone needs help.
Steve and Matt tend to Ethan and Mac respectively. Maya cowers in shock as Olivia rushes to help Steve with Ethan. Steve instructs Michael to get to the ER to tell them people have been shot and they need gurneys stat. Patrick and Carly come to the scene and tend to Warren. Carly then goes to Kristina as Warren whispers to the girl, "This is all your fault," and then dies. Michael returns with Lisa and more hospital workers. Robin and Maxie come to the shooting scene and panic over seeing Mac. Patrick consoles Robin, as Matt assures Maxie he will save Mac. Maxie follows Matt to urge him to do better than his best because Mac is the only family she has left and she needs him. Olivia gets dizzy as she talks with Steve. After Steve walks away, Maya thanks Olivia for stepping in when she couldn't. Olivia notes Ethan wasn't the first person Maya's seen get shot.
Carly brings Kristina and Michael to another hospital room as they try and process what just happened. Both Carly and Michael try to convince Kristina none of this was her fault.
As Patrick and Matt operate on Mac, Maxie and Robin discuss the man who raised them. They know they haven't been around for him lately, but they are confident they will get the chance to show him how much they love him.
In L.A., Jason and Dante peruse Franco's exhibit and run into the museum curator who is with Kalup. Dante and the curator go to look at security footage, as Kalup tells Jason Franco is waiting for him to find him. Jason sees Franco who grabs a woman and holds a gun to her head. The crowd gathers, thinking it's all part of the show, as Franco tells Jason he can help him take a life or help him save one. Things intensify as the woman finally realizes it might not be performance art anymore. Franco mentions Michael and the prison showers. He directs Jason's attention to a video of Carter, who he says will live on through his work. Franco takes off while Jason is distracted. When Franco's cameraman privately questions Franco's actions, Franco kills him. Back in the middle of the show, Dante sees Lulu and Jason takes off after spotting Franco. Lucky calls Dante to update him on what's going on at the hospital. Lucky tells Dante Jason can't kill Franco or else they might not find the baby. After hanging up, Dante approaches Lulu wondering what she's doing there. Lulu explains she's there to protect him from Jason. She doesn't think he will do anything to Dante as long as she's there because then he'd have to answer to Carly.
Kalup performs as Jason follows Franco into a stairwell and chases after him. Franco goes up to the roof and seemingly falls over the edge. He lies in a pool of blood on the number 66 in front of Dante, Lulu and the rest of the crowd, as Jason peers over the ledge.
