Alexis asks what her chances of being reinstated are. He informs her given her recent antics with Julian they aren’t good. He leaves, and Alexis spots Julian in the interrogation room. She quickly checks on him, and he thanks her for getting the kidnapping charges against him dropped. However, he won’t let her ruin her life for him. Alexis tells him she only told the truth.

At GH, Hayden leaves Tracy a message wishing her luck. Brad overhears and is thrilled to learn Tracy won’t be back for a while, so she can’t protect Finn. Hayden tells Brad that Dr. Finn’s recovery is going well, but Brad says not to count on it. He goes off on Finn for being a liar and swindling him out of the profits from the sale of the Blackwood Syndrome cure. Brad guarantees that Finn will go down now that Tracy isn’t here to save him. Obrecht walks up and hears that Tracy is gone and is intrigued. Hayden warns her that she won’t get herself back on the hospital board if that is what she’s thinking. Hayden leaves to meet Finn, and Brad tells Obrecht that something big is about to hit the fan regarding Finn. Finn meets Griffin in his office and learns his second test came back positive. Finn swears he is clean and insists someone is tampering with the results. Hayden walks in and insists Finn is being set up, and has an idea how to catch the person behind it. Later, Griffin, Hayden and Finn go out into the hallway where Brad is still talking to Obrecht. Griffin agrees to give Finn one last chance with a third test. Brad throws a fit, and Obrecht backs him up. Griffin suggests Brad get back to work, but Brad swears they will all see that Finn is an addict and a loser. Later, Griffin, Hayden and Finn reconvene in Griffin’s office. Griffin remarks this isn’t going to end well for someone, either Brad or Finn.
