In the Quartermaine kitchen, Willow and Michael share a passionate kiss, which BLQ walks in on. She jokes it’s good to see some things haven’t changed. They ask about her trip. She says it felt good to get away, but now she’s back and needs to get her stuff out of the house. Michael relays that he and Chase did that last week. She thanks him, and realizes she must figure out what’s next for her.

Willow is snarky GH

Michael and Willow bring up Bailey and know she fell in love with that baby, and that’s understandable. BLQ admits giving Bailey up has been excruciating, but she’ll get over it and go back to that single carefree life she lived before. Michael doesn’t think she’s the same person anymore, and Willow concurs. Brook Lynn notes she didn’t go through it alone, and Chase was there for her.

Michael and BLQ talk about Chase GH

Willow realizes she’s late and has to observe rounds at GH. She rushes out, and BLQ tells Michael that the two of them are still nauseatingly cute. Michael brings up the fact that he couldn’t help but notice how she was talking about Chase earlier. Brook Lynn says they are just friends, and even if she felt something, it was probably a result of the situation. Michael thinks it looked like a lot more. BLQ fears if she tells Chase that she likes him and he doesn’t return the feelings, she would lose him as a friend. Michael suggests she focus on what she might gain.

Esme puts on a show

Esme sits down with them and asks if they are wedding planning. They are and reveal they’ve decided to invite the family to the ceremony. Esme suggests he not bother inviting Spence. Ava suspects this is about Spencer not accepting her, and Esme confirms it. Nikolas says Spencer will have to get used to Ava. Ava gets a call and excuses herself.

Alone, Esme tells Nikolas that he’s not the man she thought he was from Spencer’s description of him. Nikolas assumes it was all bad, but she says Spence worshiped him. He said as a kid that it was the two of them against the world. Esme explains Spence always described him as a man of singular focus, and Spence thinks now his focus is on Ava. She knows he has room for a lot of love in his heart, and she’s been speaking to Spencer on his behalf. She offers to talk to him about the renewal.

Ava returns and tells Nikolas the call was about Ryan. She fills him in on Kevin’s visit, and that he’s still locked in. Esme grips her fist under the table. Ava is just glad to know there is nothing that the monster can do to them from Spring Ridge. Ava must get to the gallery, and Nikolas thinks he should go. Esme was hoping to talk to Nikolas more about Spencer, so Ava urges him to stay. Nikolas at least offers to walk Ava out first.
