Amy and Griffin rush into Nathan’s hospital room when he flatlines. Maxie is ushered to the hallway where Valentin, Nina, Mac, Felicia, Liesl and Dante encircle her. Maxie quietly pleads for Nathan to pull through. Griffin is unable to revive him and calls time of death on Nathan West. Griffin walks out to gently tell Maxie Nathan is gone. She sobs, but won’t let her parents console her. She returns to her husband’s side alone. Maxie wonders how to say goodbye to the man who helped her recognize she had the strength to save herself. She can’t find that strength right now. It doesn’t work without him. Nothing will. Maxie tells Nathan how much she loves him. She will always love him. She touches her belly and says, “We both will.” Felicia enters to help Maxie get up and walk out the door. Amy returns and pulls the sheet over Nathan’s hands. She thanks him for everything he did for her. Dante interrupts, offering to finish covering the body. She leaves Dante to tell his partner he was the best friend he ever had. Holding back tears, Dante promises he will take care of Maxie and the baby before pulling the sheet over Nathan’s face. Back outside, Nina breaks down, but asks Valentin to check on Charlotte. She needs her to know she won’t be there to tuck her in tonight, but she will be there in the morning. Valentin kisses Nina’s forehead and leaves to call his daughter. Nina walks over to thank Maxie for loving Nathan and then rushes away sobbing. Before leaving with Mac and Felicia, Maxie returns to Nathan’s room, which is now empty. She cries as she remembers Nathan feeling the baby kick.

Curtis sits with Lulu at Kelly’s as she takes a break from writing her article about Nathan. Lulu mentions she hasn’t heard anything about the detective yet. Curtis says he is there to pick up food for Jordan because he knows it’s going to be a long night. Lulu gets a call from Dante who tells her to get to the hospital. Lulu demands to know what’s going on, so Dante tearfully tells her Nathan didn’t make it. Curtis offers to drive a devastated Lulu to GH.
After Dante hangs up with Lulu from outside Nathan’s hospital room, Liesl blames his wife for putting the events of Nathan’s death in motion. Dante sticks up for Lulu and says everyone is grieving. Liesl points out he didn’t exactly disagree with her. Lulu arrives and cries in Dante’s arms, as Jordan finds Curtis and does the same. Later, Liesl reminisces about her son.
