Reach Up for the Sunrise
People may have written AJ off – and maybe they can’t be faulted for it, as he’s been lurching and leaning all over Port Charles for the last few weeks, bottle tucked securely in his pocket as he meanders around the cemetery. But lucidity and recall are tentatively making overtures, poking holes in the whiskey-laden curtain on his brain. Unbalanced and shaky he may be, but there are certain things about that night Connie was killed which are coming back to him with shocking clarity, and this return to sentient life is not good news for Ava.
However, she’s in a bit of a pickle, because she can’t take direct action to solve her problem – so she meets up with an old friend and cajoles him into helping her. So, being the pal is, he agrees, and goes off to beat the living daylights out of AJ. This may end up being a grave miscalculation though. An addict AJ may be, but he’s no fool – and he almost immediately begins to wonder who’s behind the attack – and why they’re so rattled as to want him removed from the earthly plane.
All I Want
to come together for Sonny Corinthos, who is also not stupid or lacking in cognitive ability. Shawn’s dogged research has yielded some extremely interesting results, as he was able to trace the funding for Julian’s rival operations, and the results are illuminating. Julian switches over from grandpappy mode to throw his arm around an unnerved TJ, buttonholing the kid for an overdue chat about the warehouse shooting. Rattled, TJ beelines right for Sonny and Shawn and informs them of the encounter, whereas in turn Shawn beelines for Alexis and lets her know about it. This is of course unsettling for Alexis; she’s begun to trust Julian despite herself. Quite understandably, she begins to question that decision.
Over in the Big Apple, Silas and Sam have concocted a new plan to clear his name, albeit a tentative one with more than one sticky widget. Unexpected circumstances arise, and Delia frantically attempts to warn Sam. However, since Sam and Silas are…otherwise engaged, and Sam doesn’t get the message.
Later, the Three Amigos sit down to strategize and review their plan for the erstwhile pharmacist, Mr. Nakamura, but before they can put it into play, they receive some stunning news. Silas finally realizes he needs to deal with some things he’s had on the shelf for far too long, and makes a crucial decision about his life and his future.
Don’t Forget Me When I’m Gone
Back in Port Charles, Patrick and Robin have some devastating choices of their own to make – choices with far-reaching consequences, and which may be irrevocable. A distraught Patrick, worried sick for his daughter and bereft at what is about to happen, confides to Sabrina about what’s happening with Robin, while Robin herself braces to tell friends and family the news. Predictably, her announcement is received with a mix of shock, sadness, and anger – and not a little suspicion on Anna’s part. Mum knows her daughter better than anyone, and knows when something is being held back.
