At the hospital, Chase swears to Willow that he and Sasha never slept together, and it was all a lie. She refuses to have this conversation in public, so they go to a meeting room. Willow asks why she should believe he’s telling the truth. Chase explains that he and Sasha knew Michael needed to win full custody of Wiley and marrying her would improve his chances. He and Sasha realized that she and Michael would never have married for each other though, so they had to take themselves out of the equation to push them into it. She is devastated that he made such an important decision without including her and asks why he didn’t come forward with the truth earlier. He wanted to, but he could see that she and Michael were falling in love. However, when she came to visit him while Finn was in surgery, he realized he couldn’t deny the fact that he still loved her any longer. In Sasha’s room, Carly tells Michael that Sasha and Chase lied about the affair to push him and Willow together to win custody of Wiley. Michael can’t believe she knew and never told him the truth. She thinks what Sasha and Chase did was smart and noble, and she kept her mouth shut so he would win custody of Wiley. She knows he’s angry, but he hopes he sees that Sasha’s intentions were good. Michael doesn’t know what comes next because things are more complicated now. She wonders if that is due to Willow. Elsewhere, Britt asks Jason what is to stop her from telling Cyrus his theory. He says he’s taking a chance on her and suspects she didn’t sign up for these overdoses. Whatever she may be, he knows she’s not a drug trafficker. He wants her to let him know if she sees or hears anything, he needs a source inside General Hospital. Jason gets a text from Sam wondering where he is. He ignores the text and tells Britt that he’s sure she’ll do the right thing when the time comes. Jason leaves, and Britt orders an inventory of their pharmacy.

Julian calls his bluff and says he’ll be long gone by the time Cyrus gets to Sonny. Cyrus reminds him he’d be leaving behind a lot of loved ones he won’t be able to protect.
