Maxie and Peter Get Trapped in an Elevator
Friday September 14, 2018: Dawson finds a possible connection between the body and Sonny, Mike tells Sonny it's time he went to a care facility, and Drew is given a surprise birthday party.
Drew meets with Curtis at the Metro Court bar and informs him he’s found out that Monica is planning a surprise party for his birthday, which he’s not keen on. Curtis tells him to go, enjoy it and act surprised. Curtis leaves him and runs into Valentin, who wants updates on the search for Nina’s daughter. Elsewhere, Nina meets with a jewelry appraiser to look over the locket. He confirms it was deliberately cut in half and part of a whole piece. Nearby, Valentin and Curtis continue to talk, and Valentin is eager for news to tell Nina. She walks in on them and asks, “Tell me what?” She immediately tells Valentin to forget it but asks to speak to Curtis about a pressing matter. She pulls him aside and points out a guy in the bar who she suspects is following her. After noticing the guy appears to be packing a firearm, Curtis pins him to the bar, only to learn he’s a bodyguard that Valentin hired for Nina. The bodyguard takes off, and Valentin admits he hired him because Cassandra is on the loose again. Curtis offers to give Nina some names of some bodyguards, but Nina thinks she can handle herself and walks off. Meanwhile, Maxie gets trapped in the elevator with Peter when it malfunctions. She calls Olivia, who puts technicians on the problem. Peter starts to panic, breaths heavily and admits he’s never felt like this before. Maxie suspects being held captive has something to do with this. He feels it’s getting hot and he can’t breathe, so he takes his shirt off. She tries to keep him calm and suggests they play “would you rather,” which leads to Peter opening up when she asks him about which memories he’d rather forget. He admits if he forgot all the bad things he’s done then he couldn’t make up for them. The elevator begins working again, and they stumble out into the restaurant and right into Nina. Nina looks at a shirtless Peter, says she doesn’t even want to know, and walks away. Maxie chases her to explain. Meanwhile, Curtis briefs Valentin on an update. One of the payments made to the lawyer Madeline used was from a single mother with a daughter the same age as Nina’s would be today.
