Stella arrived at Sonny's, and Sonny wondered if he had forgotten about a meeting. Mike informed his son that Stella was there to see him, and they walked out onto the terrace. She wondered if he'd looked at the brochures she'd given him, and he responded by pulling out a handwritten list of thoughts and questions. He revealed that he'd decided to move in order to protect his family, and Stella thought that Mike had made a brave decision. He asked Stella for her help in getting Sonny to let Mike go.
A few minutes later, Stella and Mike looked through some brochures together, and he picked out three to show to Sonny for possible visits. He wondered if Stella would accompany them, and she agreed. He appreciated her friendship and all she'd done for him, and he tearfully asked her to promise that, "when I can't remember you, remember how much I wanted to."
Sonny wanted to send Jason to Charlie's with a check for Julian to cover the damage of the explosion. Sonny answered the phone when it rang, listened for a second, and begrudgingly said to "send her up." A few second later, the doorbell rang, and Sonny let Jordan in as Jason left with the check. Jordan informed Sonny that her ballistics team had traced the bullet found in the remains to a gun used in a "gangland shooting" in Brooklyn years before the victim had died. Through research, Jordan had found that Mike had lived in Brooklyn around the same time.
Sonny insisted that Mike wasn't a killer, and he was in a state that he couldn't even remember what he'd done the day before. Jordan didn't want to upset Mike, but she still had a case to solve. Mike and Stella returned, and Stella was clearly unhappy to see Jordan. Stella promised to talk to Mike soon, and she headed for the door. Mike walked her out, and she wondered if he wanted her to stay. He promised that whatever Jordan was there for had nothing to do with him, so Stella left.
Mike returned and offered to answer anything Jordan wanted to ask him, but Sonny interjected that Jordan didn't need anything from him. Sonny addressed Jordan and told her that Mike had no connection to the murder, and she was wasting her time. Jordan's phone went off, and she quickly answered it. When she hung up a few seconds later, she informed Sonny that the body had been identified, so if Mike was connected, they would soon know.
Ava complained to Julian about Kiki and her betrayal with Griffin, but Julian reminded Ava of her betrayal of Kiki with Morgan. He talked her down and jogged her memory of how Kiki had stood by her despite her mistakes. Julian related that he would give anything for one of his kids to even talk to him for five minutes. She realized that he had a point, and she left.
"At least the fridge works," Kiki remarked as she handed Griffin a beer. She told Griffin that she could go for a nice, cold, air-conditioned movie. She asked what his favorite movie was, but he admitted that he hadn't seen many. She informed him that the Port Charles film festival was the next month, so she retrieved a flyer for it and picked out movies to take Griffin to. She figured that she could work the dates into her schedule, and Griffin was happy that she was continuing with the shadow program. She told him that Finn had offered to have her shadow him, and she added that Finn and Griffin made her realize that "creeps like Bensch" were the exception, not the rule.
There was a knock on the door, and Kiki was shocked to answer it to Ava. Ava hugged Kiki and told her that they'd both gotten "carried away." Just then, Ava noticed Griffin and instantly became icy. Griffin explained that they were killing time, waiting for the super to fix the radiator, as he'd just moved in down the hall. At Ava's surprise, he spat that it was all he could afford after he'd lost his job, and he assumed that Ava had also been the one to talk to his Monsignor.
Kiki talked about how selfish and vindictive her mother was, and Griffin couldn't believe that he'd been naïve enough to think that love could change Ava. Kiki slammed the door in Ava's face and got two more beers. Kiki said she felt "free." Kiki answered her ringing phone. When she hung up, she relayed that the super was on his way. Griffin thought he would wait it out at his place, and he left, promising to see Kiki soon.
Jason entered Charlie's and handed the check to Julian, who wondered why Sonny hadn't sent someone at the right "pay grade" to drop it off. Jason replied that he was there to make sure that Julian kept the unspoken agreement to keep quiet about Mike. Julian assured Jason that, while there was a time Julian would have been a threat to Sonny, he had important things in his life that he didn't want to risk while "tangling" with Sonny. Julian wondered if Jason loved Sam enough, as Drew had, not to pull her back into the business. "What Sam does is up to Sam," Jason stated, and he left.
An angry Ava returned and told Julian that "my daughter is no longer my daughter," and the feeling was clearly mutual. She called Kiki just "another enemy who's taken something from me." She drank a shot and concluded that people who stole from her "pay the price."
At the hospital, Michael noticed a flustered Maxie and offered to help her with James. "Yes, please!" she replied, and she handed James to Michael as she got her things together. She observed that "you've got the touch," and she related that he would one day be a great dad. She commented on how much James looked like Nathan, and Michael agreed.
Maxie wondered if holding James was "too much" for Michael, but he countered that it made him feel closer to Jonah. He couldn't really talk about Jonah with his parents, because Nelle would inevitably be mentioned, and he didn't want to "overshadow" their grief with his own. Maxie observed that her babysitters were amateurs compared to him, so he could substitute anytime. She related that she understood the feeling of missing not only the person he'd lost but also the life he'd thought he'd live with that person, and she left with James.
A pacing Lucas hoped that Brad would arrive soon so they could talk to the specialist together about Wiley. Carly calmed her brother down as Brad rushed out of the elevator. Monica approached the trio and introduced herself as their cardiology consultant. They sat down in her office, and she informed them that there were "preliminary markers" indicating a heart defect, but they wouldn't know specifics until more tests were run.
A few minutes later, Monica, Lucas, and Wiley had gone to radiology for more tests, and Carly talked down a nervous Brad. She told him that uncertainty was a part of parenting, so he could either fall apart or "fake it" until a moment when he could afford to be vulnerable. A short while later, Lucas returned with Wiley and assured Brad that the baby had slept through everything.
Monica returned and informed Lucas, Brad, and Carly that Wiley had a "small abnormality in a major vessel" in his heart that would likely fix itself. Carly remembered Michael having the same defect, and Monica added that A.J. had had the defect as well. Lucas wondered what else they didn't know about Wiley's medical history, and he accused the birth mother of keeping secrets. Brad insisted that everything would be fine, but Carly agreed that they needed to talk to the birth mother. Monica assured them that they could call her any time, and she left her office. Lucas decided that he needed to talk to the birth mother out of medical necessity.
