Nina tells Michael she expects nothing from him, but he can at least show some respect for his father. Michael screams that Sonny broke their family. She tells him that he sounds like a broken record, that he seems to get off on being down on people, and no wonder Willow turned to someone else. She quickly realizes her mistake.

Sonny says Willow has been on edge lately, and Nina urges him to find out what is happening with Willow and TJ. He yells at them both to stay away from his family and storms off. Nina apologizes and didn’t mean to tell Michael. Sonny knows his son has a way of getting under people’s skin.
In her office at GH, Britt makes an appointment over the phone with her doctor as she fears she’s having more symptoms. Sam enters and Britt asks if she knows where the necklace came from. Sam reveals the necklace is worth at least 35 million dollars and was a high-profile piece in the eighties. She explains the legalities of the necklace’s ownership are murky, and the last known owner was Leopold Taub.
Sam learned the last time the necklace was seen was on a runway in Paris in 1989, Leopold allowed it to be worn. Britt wonders if he could have sold it to Faison. Sam doesn’t know, but it’s also possible Dominique took it after Leopold died. Britt says, “Or my father stole it.” Sam also tells her that four of the gems in the necklace are from the ice princess.
Cody, Mac and Felicia all arrive to read the paternity test results. Dione tries to get them sent up, but there is a backup in the lab. She offers to go down and get them herself. Felicia excuses herself to get them some coffee, and Cody and Mac make small talk.
Later, Britt walks by, so Cody excuses himself to say hello to her. He reveals the results of his paternity test are in. Britt fills him in on what Sam found out about the necklace, including its worth and that it may have belonged to Taub, and that her father stole it from him. She notes he may have more claim to the necklace than her if he’s Leopold’s son.

Anna is brought to the hospital on Finn’s orders for a phlebotomy treatment. Valentin enters the room she’s in, wearing glasses and a fake ID badge with Finn’s name on it. The guard gives them privacy, and they kiss. She asks what the plan to get her out is.
Valentin explains she will be the only prisoner in the transport, and one of Sonny’s men will be the driver. They will drop her off at a rest stop where he’ll be waiting for her. He just hopes Sonny’s people don’t screw this up.
After a nurse administers Anna’s treatment, the guard returns and tells Anna it’s time for her to go.
In the hospital garage, Anna is signed over to Dex, who is driving the transport van. Suddenly Heather is brought out to the van by another driver and Dex is informed another prisoner needs transport. Heather sees Anna and thinks they’ll have time to catch up on the ride.
In Terry’s office, she informs Willow that her cancer is now in stage four. Willow says she’s in her second trimester, so she’s ready to start treatment. Terry says remission is still possible, and they will start chemo right away. Terry explains she will also need a bone marrow transplant, and living relatives work best, but unrelated ones can work too. Willow says that’s good as she doesn’t have any known relatives. Terry says they will test her HLA levels and rush them through the system to find a match. Terry excuses herself to put in for the test while TJ stays with Willow.
Willow admits she never thought it would get to stage four so soon, and she knows there is no stage five. TJ tells her to let out what she’s feeling. She cries that she can’t die, she can’t leave Wiley or Michael, and she doesn’t want her baby to die. Suddenly Michael walks in as TJ and Willow embrace.

At Liz’s place, she invites Finn in. Liz admits there was no medical conference, she went home to get answers from her parents. Finn knew something was off, and he figured if she needed him that she’d reach out. She explains she confronted them about everything in her memory, the stairwell, and that woman. She explains to Finn that when she was 15, she found her father having an affair with another woman doctor. They argued, and she fell, and she didn’t mean for it to happen. Liz explains the woman died and it was her fault.
Finn assures her it wasn’t her fault and it sounds like a horrible accident. Liz explains the woman didn’t die from the fall, but from complications from an infection at the hospital. She goes on to reveal how her parents went out of their way to keep her from remembering, and that they stayed away so the sight of Jeff wouldn’t retrigger the memory. Finn is dumbfounded and tells her how sorry he is. He suggests she talk to Kevin to sort this out, and Liz thinks that is a good idea.
Liz thanks Finn for being so supportive, and she has no right to his kindness. He’s confused because he loves her, and she’s not to blame for the accident. Liz tells him there is something else, something she’s afraid to tell him because he’ll never look at her the same again. Liz confesses this happened on the Mariana Islands when her parents were there with Doctors Without Borders. Finn realizes that was around the same time that he and Reiko were stationed there. Liz admits the doctor she argued with was Reiko.
