Jordan arrives at Wyndemere and examines the crime scene. Jason notes something is not right with the furniture in Nikolas’ room, but before he can say anything else, Jordan tells everyone to head downstairs. In the living room, Jordan begins questioning everyone about when they arrived and what they saw. Rachel feels this is pointless and accuses Jason of killing Jason killed her husband. Jordan says they have no evidence, yet. Laura walks in and asks what is going on. She is filled in by Jordan, who assures her that she has men looking everywhere for Nikolas, though they have no idea if it was really Nikolas that Sam and Jason saw on the rocks. A cop arrives with evidence found on the beach, and Rachel recognizes it as Nikolas’ phone. Jordan wonders if anyone else was here tonight. Rachel says nobody was here, but that Nikolas had surveillance cameras set up after the last time they had uninvited guests, so they can examine them. Rachel looks through Nikolas’ phone and cries, while Jordan warns Jason that he is the prime suspect if a murder occurred here. She tells him not to leave town.

At the Quartermaine mansion, Tracy refuses to let Sabrina hold her son, and takes her to task for disappearing on her and not saying goodbye. They argue back and forth about what both Sabrina and Tracy have gone through over the past few weeks. Sabrina begs Tracy not to keep her from her son, but Tracy says she’s doing what she has to do. Michael says no, that Tracy is doing to Sabrina what was almost done to her. He reminds her that she fled to Europe with Dillon when she feared Paul was going to take him from her. Tracy tells Sabrina that she can’t give Edward back to her. Sabrina is shocked since she also chose the name Eduardo, after Edward Quartermaine, but she calls him Teddy for short. Tracy likes Edward better and eventually lets Sabrina spend time with her son.

In the hallways of GH, Brad calls Sam and leaves her a voice message asking him to call him as soon as possible. Julian arrives and heads into Lucas’ room with Brad, where Obrecht is accusing Finn of doing whatever was done to Lucas. Finn denies this. Julian wants to know what happened to his son, and Obrecht chimes in that the hospital has lost some patients under suspicious circumstances, and rats out Finn as their doctor. Julian asks Finn if he did this to his son, and almost attacks him, but Brad stops him and tells him that Griffin and Finn worked to save Lucas’ life. Brad tells Obrecht and Finn to take their squabble elsewhere, so they leave. Out in the hall, Finn and Obrecht continue to argue. Obrecht tells him that he better hope Lucas does not become his third patient to die. Back in Lucas’ room, Brad leaves Julian and Lucas to check on the lab results. Julian finally calls Alexis and tells her that he needs her. Back in the hall, Brad shows Finn and Obrecht the lab results that shows Lucas was given a muscle relaxant used in surgery, enough to kill him. Meanwhile, Alexis arrives to support Julian, and he hugs her.
