In Switzerland, Franco and Scott went to see Dr. Kirk for answers about his tumor and the mysterious voice of Peter August he keeps hearing in his head. Kirk felt the tumor could be a response to the memory transfer Franco was forced to undergo, and the voice is lingering memories of Drew Cain’s. Unfortunately, when Dr. Kirk realized Obrecht was using him to further her vendetta against Anna and Peter, a knife was drawn, and Scott saved Obrecht from Kirk, only for Dr. Kirk to fall on the knife and die. How will they get themselves out of this mess?

Even though Michael and Willow finally know the truth, that Sasha and Chase didn’t have an affair, they have developed feelings for one another, complicating matters. It also appears Michael isn’t ready to forgive Chase, and the two get into an altercation at Sonny’s gym.
