Ava meets with Spencer at his boarding school in France. He rails at her for betraying his father, but she hopes he can forgive her when he sees all is not lost. Nikolas appears and Spencer can’t believe his father is alive. He asks where he’s been, and Nikolas explains he had to stay away to protect everyone until he could return, and that he found a way to get his inheritance back. Spencer is aghast to learn that his father chose to stay away. Nikolas says he hated Valentin for killing his father, but now he hates his father for staying dead. Nikolas excuses himself for some air, and Ava asks the boy to put his anger aside and let his father love him again. Nikolas returns and promises to make everything up to him. Spencer cries that he spent the past three years alone because of him and tells his father he’s just as heartless as Valentin because the Cassadine legacy is more important to his father than he is. He screams at his father to stay away from him and storms out.
At the Metro Court, Laura meets with Jax, who apologizes for not telling her about Nikolas. She accepts his apology and switches the topic to her plan to renovate the waterfront and make it safer.

Meanwhile, Gladys asks Carly if she could get a tour of Sonny’s coffee warehouse. Carly has to drop something off later and says she can tag along. Up in the Crimson offices, Charlotte hangs out with Nina working on a collage for school. Curtis drops by to check on Nina, so Nina sends Charlotte to search Maxie’s desk for more photos.

Charlotte shows Willow the collage she’s working on, leaving Nina and Sasha to meet. Nina tells Sasha she read her proposal and will move forward on the condition that Crimson does a cover story on Sasha and her life. Sasha agrees and heads out. Willow follows her, and Sasha cries to Willow that she just gave Nina permission to publicly shame her in print.
At Brad’s place, Nelle pressures Brad into letting her hold Wiley. Suddenly Michael and Chase arrive and Michael snatches Wiley from her arms and hands him back to Brad.

He offers to get her another place to live and thinks the place he has in mind will please her. Later, Chase asks Michael if he’s sure about his plan. Michael plans to keep Nelle close in order to drop the hammer on her when the time is right.

He explains he was visiting Jordan, who was an old colleague. He leaves, and Laura tells Jordan that Jax has agreed to help rebuild the waterfront if ELQ is onboard.
