Across the room, Trina demands to know what’s in the letter and takes Spencer outside to explain. Though Trina sees her name on the envelope, Spencer corrects her —he addressed it to “Trina, his friend” and according to Trina, that’s not her. She apologizes but reminds him how toxic their friendship became. She hopes he understands. Spencer does and says since they’re sharing, he has something to share too.

Back inside, at a table, Jordan and TJ talk about how Stella found her cousin in London when they all thought the person was in Port Charles. TJ admits the whole thing never felt right to him.

When Portia appears to say hello, Stella spies the engagement ring and asks, “What is this?” Curtis and Marshall join the group. Stella hugs Portia and welcomes her to the family. When Curtis and Portia ask Stella to marry them, Stella thinks back to taking Curtis and Jordan’s divorce papers before they were filed.
