At the hospital, Anna and Finn prep a sickly Britt to get her mom on the phone. Britt worries they may be killing her in the process by deliberately infecting her with a virus. Anna planted a story about her sickness yesterday but Obrecht still hasn’t called. Anna follows Finn into the corridor and asks if he’s heard from Hayden again. He admits she wants to see him in two days. The doctor asks Anna to go to Europe with him but she’s not comfortable with that. He assures her he has no plans, but would feel better with her around. The phone in Britt’s room rings so Anna rushes in. It’s some dude who tests her knowledge before handing the phone over to Liesl, who immediately asks Britt if she’s colluding with Anna. Britt is sarcastic and rejects this. Liesl doesn’t believe she’s actually ill and must be running a scam. Britt coughs. That convinces her mom the sickness is real. Britt begs her ‘mutter’ to come and get her. Liesl is reluctant and hangs up. Anna explains the call wasn’t long enough to trace and it was scrambled but from sounds in the background, she knows where she is. Meanwhile, Finn stands by the elevator, re-reading the text Hayden sent him. Anna comes over and says that Obrecht is in Havana. He’s eager to go. Anna says they aren’t. She’s going alone and tells him to resolve things with Hayden.
Peter takes Maxie home. He’s worried that Kiki’s killer is on the loose and asks if she wants to be alone. She doesn’t. They talk about family and he admits he now understands why his mom gave him up. He has a lot of regrets, especially about Nathan. Maxie assures him he doesn’t need to feel guilty. They toast to today and nearly kiss but the baby starts crying. She awkwardly runs off as he apologizes. When she returns, she suggests he leave. He sits outside her door.
