Maya launches into the story of how she met Aaron, a cardiologist she met at the hospital while visiting her aunt. She cries as she says she won't be coming back to Port Charles. However, she loved being married to Ethan because he made everything fun. He was the best time she ever had, but being with him scared her to death. Although hurt, Ethan remains calm and understanding. Maya says their differences are too great because she is not wired for the adventure he seeks every day.

He says he's great and he's finally learning what it means to be part of a family. She feels bad he won't be getting Edward's money, but he doesn’t care about it. He just thought she needed it. She wants him to yell at her, but he won't. He says they had a great time, but every party has to end. He states she was the most fun he ever had too. He kisses her on the cheek and leaves, but pauses outside the door as he tears up.
