Dev strolls into the Metro Court and spots Laura’s purse on a table. He knocks it on the floor and is about to pick it up when Jason catches him reaching for the wallet. Carly interrupts and says that Dev will be working in the kitchen. After the teen wanders off, Jason asks Carly what she thinks of him. She says he’s basically good and he’s important to Sonny. Jason’s not sure that Dev can survive being undercover for years and worries he’ll be caught doing something stupid. Dev returns after Carly exits and tells Jason the purse was on the floor and he was only picking it up. Jason knows that’s a lie. He points out that robbing Laura would have been a bad choice, especially since he doesn’t need the money. Dev doesn’t want to squander the chance Sonny is giving him. Across the room, Hayden sits with Laura and they chat about Spencer, his changing voice, and the shadow Valentin has thrown over his life. Hayden tells her about being the CFO of Aurora. They talk about people making mistakes and how Nikolas could have come back to the good side if he’d had the chance. Ava interrupts to say what a lasting impression he made on her. They get up to leave and Laura says he is always in her heart.

He knows but he still owes him.
Finn runs into Alexis at General Hospital. They discuss therapy and she offers to listen to him talk about Hayden. He says they almost made things work and now he must face the failure. She explains she gets that feeling around all her exes too. He’s moved on but the woman he moved on with has disappeared. The lawyer advises him to just focus on the facts, not his fantasies about what might be. She then rambles about digging into people’s personal lives and being fired by her own therapist. Peter arrives with Maxie and is wheeled into an operating theatre. Finn finds Maxie looking at the blood on her hands. She tells him that Peter getting shot was her fault. He could have died and Dante would be a murderer. “What is wrong with me?” she wonders. They sit down and he tells her how rough dating someone in the WSB is. He guesses she had good intentions and says Peter is responsible for going with her. A doctor comes out and explains there was no need for surgery. They have closed the wound. Maxie and Finn go to see the patient. She apologizes and Peter insists he’s fine. He’s glad he got shot instead of her. Later, Lulu arrives at the hospital and Maxie tells her that Dante shot Peter.

She insists that she’s felt her daughter’s spirit. Kristina thinks Sibley is the real deal, but Julian thinks it’s a scam. Ava tells him to stay out of this and heads for the door, bumping into Alexis on the way. They chat about her Crimson story and then Ava exits. Alexis surprises her daughter with a hug.
