“Mike” and Nina return to the Tan-O and talk about how all the people of the town came out for Lenny’s funeral. “Mike” says love is the thing that matters most. They remember how much Lenny loved to dance and say how lucky he and Phyllis were to be together. Sitting on the floor, they rummage through Lenny’s trunk to find things for a memorial wall. As “Mike” looks at a wedding photo, he gets a flash of Carly. He snaps out of it and tells Nina about the blonde woman with a wedding bouquet. He wonders if it’s a vision of his future. “Mike” talks about the afterlife and tells her that what they have will live on. They kiss, but she pushes him away and says it’s wrong. He’s apologetic.

At the Quartermaine house, Chase sits in the corner and watches giggling Michael and Willow stroll in. Michael gets called away to see his mom. Chase asks if she wants to go with him. Valentin and Brook Lynn breeze in, bickering about Austin. Chase confuses all of them by saying he’s on Austin’s side since he’s been kept in the dark. He wonders if there is any proof to back up Austin’s claims. Valentin leaves for lunch with the doctor and Brook Lynn returns to the baby. The married couple starts bickering about the basis of their relationship. He insists that he’s never stopped loving her and she says that nothing has changed. “Nothing?” he asks.

Brook Lynn wheels the baby around and wonders what will happen when the truth comes out. After she leaves the kid with Yuri, she’s shocked to walk into the living room and find Chase’s chair empty. He hobbles back in, calling Austin to tell him he’s found the proof he needs. Brook Lynn demands to know what’s going on.
In the Corinthos kitchen, Joss quizzes her mom about what was happening last night and who she was meeting. Carly claims she was just with Jason. When Michael arrives, his mom announces that she and Jason have set a date. Excited Joss hugs her and rushes off. Michael wonders if his mom is rushing this.

Martin sits next to Anna by the pool and asks about her relationship with Valentin. He makes it clear that he hopes they are friends. He’s fascinated by her ‘mystique’ and wants to get to know her better. “Marty, are you hitting on me?” she asks. He flirts. Valentin arrives and watches this for a while before interrupting. After Anna leaves to make a call, Valentin asks Martin if he’s “getting ideas” about her. He thinks she should be off-limits. Martin agrees after he threatens to take away his retainer. The lawyer gets a call and runs.
