In a room in Beecher’s Corners, Brook Lynn runs through the list of things she was supposed to bring to Maxie and wonders where she is.
In the woods, Austin holds up the baby. Maxie worries that Louise isn’t crying so he rubs her until she does. Cradling the baby, she thanks the doctor for being there. When Austin wants to call an ambulance, she asks him not to because Peter will find her. She says she needs to get to Beecher’s Corners and begs him to take her there. He agrees, but only if they swing by a hospital first. Before he can call an ambulance, Chloe knocks him out. Maxie kicks her in the leg and walks off with the baby. When Maxie finds a boarded-up shaft, she pushes some rocks on it and steps back to wait for Chloe. The nurse immediately steps on the rotten wood and falls down the shaft. Finding her phone on the ground, Maxie picks it up and calls Brook Lynn as she looks down into the hole.
Liz drops by Finn’s office at General Hospital and tells him he needs to get some rest. He’s worried that he’s not capable of solving this in time to save Chase. She has faith in him.

He doesn’t have time to talk but thanks her.
Sasha arrives with a bodyguard, looking for Brando. He tells her Gladys was shot. Dante and Jordan pop up and ask about that. Brando tells them what happened with his mother and why. The cops leave it at that for now. Sasha and Brando sit down and she says that Cyrus can’t dictate how they live. He admits that he’s always thinking negatively about his mom, but he’d be lost without her.
Jordan and Dante run through what they have on Cyrus now. She gets a message about the shootout on the pier and then informs Brando and Sasha about it. The commissioner admits that if Gladys dies, the case against Cyrus will fall apart.
Willow walks Chase back into the Quartermaine house. He wishes Finn would be honest about what’s actually wrong with him. Michael joins them and they help the detective to a couch. When Willow and Michael step away, they agree this is harder than they thought it would be. She doesn’t think Michael should be putting his life on hold for this. He insists it’s worth it. Chase stands in the doorway and overhears them. He thanks them for being such great friends and the sacrifices they are making. Chase collapses.
Michael and Willow rush Chase to the hospital. Finn gets him to bed as his vitals drop. He asks Anna to find Peter and get another dose of the antidote. Willow confronts Finn about what he’s been keeping from Chase.
