At Wyndemere, Anna is taken aback by Valentin’s knowledge that she and Faison had a baby. Valentin brings up their time at spy school with she being a beautiful girl and him a crooked man. He recalls a midwife who delivered the girl’s child. At first Valentin thought the girl was Anna’s sister Alex, but says, “It was you… that child was yours.” Anna demands to know how he knows any of this. He wasn’t there! Valentin admits how much he loved Anna, how much she wanted to bring down Faison even back then. He followed her one night, she was dressed as a call girl. He watched her get Faison drunk and leave with him. Valentin knows she got a lot more than she bargained for that night. Anna turns to go, but Valentin taunts, “If you leave now, you’re missing the best part of the story.” Anna remembers how Faison used to pay women to impersonate her. She tried to beat him at his own game. Valentin learned of Anna’s whereabouts during her leave from school. When he traced her to Brussels, there was no sign of the woman who’d given birth. Anna wonders how he knew it was her. He didn’t but she just confirmed it. “No child should have that monster for a father,” Anna seethes. Valentin agrees, that’s why he kept the secret. Anna sobs, “Do you know what happened to that child?” The midwife told Valentin Anna couldn’t look at the baby, for fear she couldn’t let it go and how Anna asked the midwife to find ‘her’ a good home. Anna’s stunned to learn she had a baby girl and is happy to hear the baby had a good home and Faison never knew she existed. Anna thanks Valentin and leaves… Valentin calls Peter and learns he’s leaving Port Charles. “That would be a mistake,” Valentin warns.
