Laura (Genie Francis) is still dealing with the revelation that Cyrus (Jeff Kober) and Martin (Michael E. Knight) are her half-brothers. What does this news mean for Laura's job as mayor? Van Etten teased:

The people of Port Charles have always seen Laura as a person who will generally do what will result in the most good for the most people. But there is always the potential risk that Cyrus might get his hooks into Laura the same way that he has gained leverage over and curry favor from other people in town.

Meanwhile, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) will continue to struggle with honesty, compromise, and trust in their marriage. Another struggling pair, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth), will have their faith in their marriage tested.

Finally, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) and Michael (Chad Duell) have developed feelings for one another. What does that mean for their former significant others, Chase (Josh Swickard) and Sasha (Sofia Mattsson)? 

Van Etten dished:

Michael and Willow developed strong feelings for each other during this marriage of convenience, and those feelings won’t be easy to shake off. At the same time, Sasha has found a connection with Brando [Johnny Wactor], who helped her through her recovery. So the goal of repairing those two couples might be more difficult than anyone anticipated.
