Rupert thinks it is a good idea, but Mary Pat scolds him for buying into Carly’s delusions and injects her. Carly warns Mary Pat to remember the name Sonny Corinthos, because he will bury her. Later Sonny finds Rupert and demands to see his wife. Rupert can’t help him and walks off.

At GH, Liz worries to Griffin about Franco, who she hasn’t heard from since he left for the police station. Meanwhile, Sam and Curtis run into Maxie, who just finished seeing Kim. They question her about Obrecht and Nina, and admit they suspect Obrecht has done something with Peter and Nina may know. Maxie is positive that Nina would never be a party to any scheme of Obrecht’s. Curtis reassures her that Nina is his friend too, but they need to find both of them as soon as possible. Maxie admits Nina has been distracted and AWOL from work a lot and moved off of Spoon Island just as it became quarantined with West Nile.

In the stables at Wyndemere, Obrecht finds Nina trying to free Peter. Nina pleads with Obrecht to release him because it’s over. Obrecht brandishes a Molotov cocktail and states Nina’s betrayal is a silver lining because she owes her nothing anymore, and she can finish things her way. Nina begs her to see that Nathan would not want her to do this, but Obrecht cries that Nathan is buried in the ground while Faison’s other son lives and breathes. Obrecht feels it’s time to end Henrik’s story and brandishes Faison’s lighter. She recites the end of The Severed Branch, where Peter waxes about keeping Faison’s lighter as a memento, but possibly having to burn his own life down one day. She lights the cocktail and tosses it at Peter as Nina screams.
Back at GH, Curtis gets an alert that Franco’s been attacked. Later Liz rushes to a room where Griffin works on stitching up Franco, who is still unconscious.
