Curtis brings her up to speed as to what happened at the reception and that Trina may be his daughter, which she knew already. Curtis wonders if she’s sorry for not telling him the truth, or did she enjoy leaving him in the dark again. She refuses to let him pick a fight and informs him that when she confronted Portia she told her to come clean, but Portia wouldn’t budge and told her to stay out of her business. Curtis asks how long she knew Trina may be his daughter.

Curtis wants answers GH

Jordan admits it was two years ago she first got an inkling, when she and Portia were trapped in that house. She explains Portia blurted out a regret about Trina’s father. She says when she later questioned her, Portia brushed it off. Jordan explains it wasn’t until a few months ago when she overheard Portia discussing genetic testing for Trina, around the same time he was tested for schizophrenia markers, that she put it together. She again questioned Portia, who warned her to stay out of her life. She explains Stella figured it out on her own and came to her, and she had to tell her the truth.

She gets a message that she needs to talk to the ADA, so Curtis says he’ll see himself out. She tells Curtis regardless of what happens, Trina needs to know she can count on him.
