At the Quartermaine mansion, Brook Lynn complained to Lois that Gloria had gone on a "tirade" about marriage while she'd been in front of Chase. Lois seemed to imply that marriage was the next natural step for Brook Lynn and Chase. Brook Lynn said that she and Chase were happy with the way their lives were.
Chase appeared, and he presented a bottle of wine ahead of dinner. As Lois worked to prepare dinner, she admitted that Gloria could be a bit much. Brook Lynn spat out her drink when Lois mentioned that Gloria was old-fashioned and held strong beliefs about marriage. Lois received a call, and she stepped away.
Embarrassed, Brook Lynn apologized to Chase as she recalled her family's belief in marriage and big weddings. Chase said that Brook Lynn was being dramatic. Brook Lynn and Chase agreed that they were both lucky to have one another.
Chase surprised Brook Lynn when he asked her to name the three most important moments in her life. Brook Lynn grew serious as she recalled the last time she had seen Edward, as well as when she had gained Leo as a brother.
"I want this moment, right now, to be on that list," Chase said. Brook Lynn asked what Chase was talking about. Chase dropped to his knees. "Brook Lynn Quartermaine... will you marry me?" Chase asked a stunned Brook Lynn.
At Kelly's Diner, Carly met a gray-haired man with an Australian accent who said that he was in Port Charles on business. The man struck up a friendly rapport with Carly, who soon noticed a homeless person lurking outside the diner. Carly invited the homeless person inside. The Australian man stared at Carly.
Moments later, the Australian man gave Carly a large bill, and he told her to hand it to the homeless person. When Carly returned with the man's check, she noted that his last name was Brennan. As Brennan prepared to leave, Carly said that she hoped to see him again. "I can practically guarantee it," Brennan said confidently.
At Pozzulo's, Sonny and Dex prepared to meet with a Pikeman representative. Sonny told Dex about Austin's murder, and he asked if Dex had ever had physical contact with Austin. Dex recalled having placed Austin in a chokehold at the hospital weeks earlier when Sonny and Dex had suspected Austin of Ava's kidnapping. Sonny said that Dex could be in trouble, if anyone had witnessed the attack on Austin.
Sonny instructed Dex to say nothing to the police, including Dante. Moments later, a slender man with finely combed, salt-and-pepper hair entered. Sonny reminded the man, a Pikeman representative, that he wouldn't do business with Pikeman until he learned the identify of the Metro Court shooter from months earlier.
The representative ignored Sonny's request, and he opened a briefcase filled with cash. The man said that Pikeman was willing to pay double their previous arrangement with Sonny. Sonny slammed the briefcase shut, and he told the representative to tell his bosses at Pikeman to find another avenue for the company's business.
After the man left, Sonny noted that Dex had something on his mind. Dex admitted he believed that Sonny should have accepted Pikeman's offer. Dex reasoned that it was better for Sonny to play along than to make himself an obstacle that needed to be removed. Sonny said that he appreciated Dex's insight. Sonny added that his best move was to disassociate himself from Pikeman altogether. "I'm betting that they think I'm more trouble than I'm worth... and move on," Sonny said.
Back at Kelly's, as Carly turned to head back to the kitchen, the man who had just met with Sonny and Dex moments earlier entered and approached Brennan. "We have a problem. Corinthos refuses to move any more of our shipments," the representative said. Brennan nodded his head in acknowledgment.
At Wyndemere, Ava showed Nina the anonymous photo she had received of Austin's dead body, as well as the note that included the words, "You're welcome." Nina encouraged Ava to take the photo and the note to the police, but Ava vowed that going to the police was the last thing she would do.
Nina asked Ava to fill her in on what had happened. Ava confided that she had been blackmailed by Mason, and she disclosed her belief that she'd killed Nikolas months earlier. Ava recalled having tried to hide Nikolas' body in the stables at Wyndemere when Austin had found her, and she noted that Mason had eventually taken Nikolas.
Nina was taken aback when she learned that Nikolas was alive. Ava noted that Austin had been working with Mason. Ava added that she believed Austin had known all along that Nikolas was alive. Nina asked what the "endgame" was. "Per usual, in this underworld at least, all roads lead back to Sonny," Ava said.
Ava revealed Austin and Mason's connection to Cyrus. Nina was in disbelief that Cyrus had been responsible for Ava's kidnapping. Nina tried to assure Ava that she had meant something to Austin. Ava recalled her fight with Austin at the Jerome Gallery, and she added that it was the last time she had seen him. Ava fretted that she had no alibi for the night of Austin's murder.
A short while later, after Nina had left, Ava placed the letter and the photograph of Austin into the fireplace as she watched them burn. Ava's face bore a worried look.
Back at Pozzulo's, Dex stepped outside when Nina appeared. Nina told Sonny that she had learned from Ava that Cyrus might be after Sonny. Sonny groused that Ava had had no business telling Nina the news about Cyrus. "No, she doesn't, really. The person I should hear it from... is you," Nina told Sonny.
At Kristina's apartment, Kristina welcomed Molly, who realized that she had never been inside Kristina's home. Kristina poured wine for her and Molly, and she said that Molly had an open invitation to visit any time.
Molly showed Kristina a file that contained a list of potential surrogate candidates. Molly said that T.J. didn't know she was looking at the list because he wasn't sure that he was ready to explore the possibility of being a father again. Molly broke down in tears again over the possibility that she would never be a mother.
Kristina sympathized with Molly, and she held her hand as she led her to the couch.
Kristina grew serious. "T.J. will come around, okay? I know he will. And when he does, let me help you, Molly. Let me carry a baby for you and T.J.," Kristina said.
Kristina said that bringing Molly's child into the world was something Kristina wanted. Molly said that she would talk to T.J., and she thanked Kristina for her offer. The two sisters said that they loved one another, and they hugged each other closely.
At Cafe Chérie, Finn claimed that General Hospital intended to "sacrifice" him because of the malpractice suit. Elizabeth did her best to reassure Finn, and she again said that nothing about the suit was his fault. Finn said he needed people to like him. Elizabeth said that she liked Finn. He grinned from ear to ear.
Elizabeth rambled with endless praise for Finn. She claimed he had "saved hundreds of lives." Finn complained that a jury just wouldn't understand him. Elizabeth held Finn's hand again as she assured him once more that he had done his best. Elizabeth agreed to help Finn become more likable. They kissed.
