Britt wakes up in her Metro Court room hung over. Brad offers her some hair of the dog or water. Britt asks for aspirin instead for her pounding head. Obrecht appears and tells her daughter she’s about to bring the real pain. Britt wants to sleep and orders them to go away, but they refuse. Obrecht tells her that she’s lost her way, and Brad welcomes Britt to her intervention. She asks how they even got into her room. Brad explains he created a distraction and Obrecht swiped a housekeeper’s keycard.

Britt has a hangover GH

Obrecht fears Britt’s performance at the mixer will affect her reputation at the hospital. Britt notes it’s not her fault she got dunked by a himbo falling from the sky. Obrecht is speaking of her drunken performance before that, about the failings of love. Britt doubts anyone will care, but Obrecht tells her that she’s become a meme.

Obrecht brings the pain GH

Obrecht shows Britt the viral video of her, and Britt asks who recorded her? She looks over at Brad, who admits he did it. He thought one day that she and her husband would laugh at it. He also calls Cody a prayer answered as she had just said something about love falling out of the sky. Obrecht thinks they are getting off-topic, and Britt hasn’t been herself. Brad points out she’s been mopey and aimless. Britt calls it one bad day, but Obrecht says she has had a string of them. Britt screams she doesn’t have many days left, so they are hers to do what she wants to with.

Brad calls her strong and resilient and thinks she’s going to outlive them all. Obrecht asks Brad to leave them, so he departs. Britt tells her mother she appreciates her help, and she knows she means well. However, she gave Society Setups her best shot and it didn’t pan out. She is taking a break from putting herself out there. Obrecht only wanted her to feel the happiness she’s discovered with Scott, and she worries that Britt is flailing. Britt explains she wants a man who not only could save her life, but she can tell she has Huntington’s and will have a horrible and debilitating death. The only man she knows like that is buried on Cassadine Island. Obrecht hates the idea that she will outlive her children. She cries Nathan is gone, and every morning she feels grateful for every day she has with Britt. Obrecht wonders when Britt will feel the same about herself and storms out.
