Still on the island, Lulu urges Nikolas not to let Helena get inside his head. It's not what's inside his head that concerns him. It's what's inside his heart. Nikolas recalls how he was an inconvenience when he first came to Port Charles. He begged for acceptance with the Spencers for years, but with Aiden he finally had a family of his own. Now, he is expected to give that up so Lucky can be happy. Lulu reminds him he chose to walk away. Nikolas wonders if it were the other way around, would people rush to make sure Aiden ended up with him? He thinks not. Nikolas wants to move on now. No Spencers and no Cassadines. He does not care what people think of him or his motives anymore. He notes the only one looking for approval right now is her. She asks if he knows something about Luke. He retorts he knows that she should leave there and never come back. He pours himself a drink and toasts to eternal damnation. She notes he's drinking what her dad drinks. He thinks Lulu is acting desperate for Luke's attention. Dante returns as Nikolas tells his sister she is putting her boyfriend's life at risk all to be a hero where Luke is concerned. Just like their mother. Dante makes his presence known and Nikolas walks away. Lulu tells Dante she needs to grow up and suggests they pack up and leave. She knows she can't save anyone. She's not her mom. Dante knows she loves her family. Lulu tells him he's her family now. If Luke has something to say to her, he'll find a way to say it.
Elsewhere on the island, Helena meets with Luke, whose face we don't see. He shows her the diamonds, but doesn't give them to her. She tells him he has a very interesting visitor. Helena later finds Nikolas. She asks him to stay, but he declares he is not the image of his father or anyone else in this family. He forcefully say no one, including her, should bet on what he does next. After he walks away, Helena makes a call and says they are alone in this, but the Spencers have never been more vulnerable.
