Britt suggests they go to The Savoy tonight and work on finding him someone. Brad passes as he still needs a job, and asks if she’s heard from Terry. Britt tries to steer around the topic as she recalls Selina’s blackmail. She asks if he really wants to be an orderly, and perhaps he should hold out for something better.
Britt jokes with Brad that working as an orderly will be a crappy job, but Brad feels he has no other options other than working for his aunt. Brad knows that won’t lead to anything but trouble. Britt’s phone gets a message to remind her to check her matches and turns the conversation back to the app. Brad thinks she should just pick one guy and jump in, but Britt comments under her breath, “It’s not like we’ll have a future.” He asks what she means by that?

Laura arrives at Anna’s place to find Robert and Felicia already in her living room. Anna and Felicia reveal they found the Ice Princess and a suspect has been arrested in Luke’s murder. Anna explains it’s Jennifer Smith and the WSB suspects she stole it to try and lure Luke back, and when her plan failed, she killed him.
Laura doesn’t buy it and feels Jennifer truly was in mourning for Luke at his memorial. She doesn’t see rigging a cable car and killing innocent people as something Jennifer would do. Laura calls that a Cassadine move. Anna agrees, but they have no evidence linking Victor to the crime, and the WSB is content with Jennifer.
Since they are on the subject of Victor, Laura reveals he tried to sell her on combining forces to protect the family from some future threat. Felicia wonders if whatever Victor is up to is not connected to the Ice Princess. Anna doesn’t think so, so Robert has a sure-fire way to prove Victor is involved. Robert suggests Anna use her relationship with Valentin to find out what is going on. Felicia laughs, “What relationship?” Anna notes they are getting off track, and tells them about Jennifer flirting with a French Captain Francois Olivier and it’s possible he’s connected to all of this.
