Valentin and Alexis on Metro Court terrace on General Hosptail

Alexis finds Valentin on the Metro Court terrace. He thanks her for checking on him the last time they were there – when he just found out he wasn’t a Cassadine. He declares he’s in a much better place since then. Alexis thinks he’s better off without the Cassadine name, but Valentin won’t give that up. He’s earned it. He notes the two of them are a lot alike before leaving. Inside, Maxie and Peter sit at a table. She didn’t invite Spinelli because she knows he has too many questions about Peter’s past. Peter defends Spinelli who isn’t the only one with questions about him. He tells her about Finn, Robert and Jason’s suspicions. But he only cares about what she thinks. Maxie believes in him and says no one can come between them. Obrecht arrives fresh from her trip from Switzerland. She says she found peace of mind and learned her loneliness is self-inflicted. She’s not unlovable; she just hasn’t forgiven herself for Nathan’s death. She apologizes to Peter. Her anger at him was misguided. She was really angry at herself for not leaving Faison earlier. Maxie steps away to take a call, as Peter presses Obrecht to elaborate. She goes on about all the lines she crossed to be worthy of Cesar. Like Peter, Obrecht has a past she’s trying to live down. There was a time she would have used his past to her advantage, but she’s not that person anymore. She sweetly smiles as she offers to listen if he ever feels the need to unburden himself.
