Sonny comes in and Jennifer praises him for now being one of two families left in town. Sonny says he doesn't need a distraction from her and wants her to leave town immediately. Laura notices that Sonny's wound a little tight, but he claims he's fine.
Jennifer calls someone and tells them that Sonny isn't interested in the West Coast, which will allow them to do what they're planning.

Britt and Austin share a drink and discuss Maxie. Britt explains how she originally planned on delivering the baby and giving her up for adoption, so Peter couldn't get his hands on her.

Ned approaches them, thanking Austin for looking out for Leo. He says the family didn't do right by Austin, but he's trying to rectify it. He asks Austin to join him for the renewal of vows, but Austin declines. Britt wonders why Austin worked so hard to have Leo assessed for autism.

Maxie shows up at Brook Lynn's to spend some time with her daughter. Bailey cries for Maxie, but settles down when Brook Lynn talks to her. Maxie complains to Chase about how her daughter doesn't know her. Chase reassures her that Peter is going to jail and she'll get her baby back. Maxie says she carries the baby's sonogram in her purse every day.

Maxie mentions she's going to Pautauk with Austin to answer Anna and Felicia's questions. She thinks it might be just as easy to tell Austin the truth, but Brook Lynn and Chase disagree.

Valentin makes small talk with Victor. Victor claims he knows why Valentin has been spending so much time with him and mentions Anna's curiosity with him. Victor's just happy to spend time with his son any way that he can. Victor says he's determined to bring the Cassadines together again and is cryptic about something sinister on the horizon. Valentin pulls out money, along with a sonogram of Bailey. He tells Victor he can't let go of it.

Victor inspects the sonogram and makes note of the patient ID. He tells Valentin he'll hang onto it to spare him any pain. Victor literally runs into Maxie, causing her to drop her purse, where her sonogram photo falls out.
