Liz Tells Franco About Oscar’s Brain Tumor
Monday September 17, 2018: Dawson questions Mike, Robin gets a visit from Jason, and Franco talks with the man he thinks is Kevin.
At Anna’s, Jason stops by to check on Robin. Talk quickly turns to Peter, who stole five years of his life and is now just living free thanks to her parents striking deals for him. She thinks Jason should be angrier than he is, but he won’t retaliate against Peter out of respect for her and Anna. Switching the subject, Jason asks Robin why she never told him that Patrick and Sam almost got married. She admits the two of them were all kinds of wrong on so many levels and suggests they never speak of it again. Jason agrees.

Inside, the DA and Jordan want to question Mike about Charlie’s and the body in the basement. Carly can’t believe they are accusing Mike, and Sonny assures them that his dad had nothing to do with that murder. Dawson finds his choice of the word murder interesting and notes it is only a matter of time before they identify the body. She asks Mike why he was at Charlie’s before the explosion, and he claims he was there to try and get his daughter Courtney a job because it looked like a wholesome place and she’s had a string of bad jobs. Mike wonders why everyone is looking at him so strangely. The DA states his daughter is dead, which sends him into a tailspin. Carly insists they will bring Mike to the station with a lawyer for any further questioning. Jordan apologizes for upsetting Mike, and she and the DA leave. Once they are gone Mike laughs because he faked the whole incident to get rid of them. He promises to fix things for Sonny and won’t be a burden anymore. He wants them to go visit some of the facilities.
