She insists that this is her second chance with Peter, and she needs to take it. Finn walks upstairs. Soon, he comes down with Violet and some bags.

Across the room, Maxie tells Brad that Spinelli and Ellie are moving back to town. She walks off and he heads over to Nelle in the corner. He tells her that he and Lucas are moving away. She tells him that’s not happening. He’s worried that Lucas might remember him confessing the truth about Wiley to him. She doesn’t think moving away is going to stop memories from returning. Meanwhile, Lulu runs into Maxie and Peter. Lulu tells them she’s taken a big step in her relationship with Dustin. The topic turns to Spinelli’s impending permanent return and how suspicious he is of Peter. Finn and Violet arrive and chat with Peter and Maxie, explaining that they are moving into the hotel.

He worries that Brad will take his stress out on her but agrees to support her. The cop is afraid that boundaries will be blurred the more time she spends with Wiley. She says he needs her help right now and she’ll step back when the time is right. They make out.
At the Jerome Gallery, Valentin eavesdrops as Nina tries to convince Ava not to tell anyone about her kiss with Jax. Valentin interrupts. He explains that he’s not a Cassadine and he doesn’t know who he is anymore. Nina sends Ava away. She encourages Valentin to turn his situation to his advantage. Upset, he exits. Ava returns, sure that Valentin has realized Nina has moved on and he’s going to kill Jax. Nina doubts that because it would cost him his daughter. Ava encourages her to move on with Jax since no one else is available.
