In his office at General Hospital, Finn assures Jake that no matter what he’s done, his mother will want to help. Liz joins them, eager to learn what is going on. Jake explains that he has an alibi for the time he was supposed to be at the studio. He was using the computers at school because he was doing something that he didn’t think his mom would want him doing. He was talking to grandma Carolyn and grandpa Jeff. They got in touch after they found out his father died.

Liz asks what her parents want. Her son explains they just wanted to get to know him. Finn tries to keep everyone calm. Jake doesn’t understand what the problem is. He talks to his grandparents about art. “Do you hate them so much you want me to hate them too?” he asks. She claims she doesn’t want him to hate anyone and orders him to go apologize to his therapist for walking out of his appointment. Once the teen walks out, Liz tells Finn that her parents going straight to Jake like that is unacceptable. He points out this means Jake hasn’t been behind all the strange things that have been happening. Now they have no clue.
