Call me crazy, but this was a great episode. I counted 23 characters and several different stories, which means this column will be rather long today.
Robin finds herself at the bottom of the well, digs deep to find her Scorpio genes and tries to climb out, all the while telling absent Emma that she’s doing it for her. Unfortunately, she falls with several attempts.
Lucky decides to stick around long enough for the police to catch a glimpse of him and know that Ronan was responsible for killing the two goons. Dante agrees to meet him later. Lulu and Siobhan discuss Ronan and Lulu asks if Siobhan has ever heard of the Balkan, but Siobhan says she hasn’t. Lulu gets the call to meet Dante and leaves with Siobhan.
Later on, Lucky and Lante return to the apartment and Lucky explains how he got away from the police. They all discuss the fact that he isn’t really Ronan, but an undercover cop helping Interpol catch the Balkan. Siobhan, hiding in the closet, hears every word.
Jason tells Brenda that they should go back to Port Charles, so that he can protect her better there. She wants nothing to do with that idea. Jason says he has a life to get back to and he can’t protect her as well where they are. She says she doesn’t trust herself there. She doesn’t want to be around people who have the power to hurt her and doesn’t want her decisions to hurt someone else.
Sonny asks Claire to go away for the weekend. She wonders what his agenda is, but he says he just wants time away. Molly shows up with something from Kristina, so Claire leaves. Molly is angry with Sonny for dating the woman who sent Michael to prison. Sonny defends Claire’s actions. Molly asks if he’s in love and he assures her that he isn’t, but that he wants female companionship. Later on, Claire returns with her suitcase, ready for their weekend together. In a funny moment, Max rolls his eyes when Sonny claims that Claire is one of a kind.
Patrick and Steven continue to bait Lisa with talk about Robin taking off and Patrick not caring, but she’s looking at them rather suspiciously.
Johnny and Olivia are toasting their reunion and both agree to avoid topics that will upset the other. Maxie shows up, asking for a new hairdresser. No wait, that’s what I wanted her to do! No, she tells Johnny that Robin’s missing and asks for his help with his mob resources, since her go to guys, Jason, Lucky and Dante are all out of town. Olivia gets snotty with Maxie, wondering if she’s exaggerating, since Miss Thang Bensonhurst figures she knows Lisa better and doesn’t believe her to be crazy. I say, shut it Miss Thang and butt out. Johnny promises Maxie that he’ll do what he can.
Nik and Brook are on their way to France. He’s grilling her about their host and she’s getting all the answers right, but eventually she starts to have an anxiety attack and freaks out. Nikolas eventually calms her down.
Mac tells Ronnie that he’s waiting to arrest Lisa, that he’s letting Patrick play his game first, but asks that Lisa’s car be impounded and her apartment checked for any evidence. Ronnie questions the legal aspect, but Mac doesn’t care, he wants to find Robin at all costs. Ronnie tells Mac not to wait for Patrick to get results, because that wait could mean life or death for Robin.
Mac shows up at the hospital, arrests Lisa and brings her down to the PCPD to interrogate her. She denies everything and tries to play Mac, who’s having none of it.
Line of the day:
Mac to Lisa: “You’re not the first whack job I’ve ever dealt with – Ryan Chamberlain, Faith Roscoe, Jerry Jacks. You’re an amateur compared to them. So your little innocent act doesn’t fly with me.
Patrick goes to Spinelli, tells him the whole story and asks for help in finding Robin. Spin hacks into Lisa’s email and bank accounts to find evidence.
Robin has given up hope at the bottom of the well. When she looks up, Stone is there, asking her why she’s in the well.
