Carly visited with Michael at the Quartermaine mansion, and they both talked about missing Sonny. Carly noted that she sometimes woke up and reached out for Sonny, while Michael assured her that he talked to Wiley about Sonny all the time. Carly mentioned the incident with Nina at the cemetery, and she accused Nina of being in denial with wanting to turn Nelle into a "wronged innocent." Michael thought that the family had been through much worse.
Carly declared that the reason for her visit to Nina's office had been to set Nina straight, and she had been upset to see Nina with Wiley. Michael reminded her that Nina was Wiley's grandmother, and he wanted to move forward. Carly agreed that Nina should have a relationship with her grandson, but she didn't think it was the right time. She thought that Nina should get grief counseling and take a step back.
Michael thought it was a good thing for Wiley to have more people around who loved him, but Carly argued that Nina would only talk about Nelle all the time and sing her praises. Then, it would be bad when Wiley heard the truth. Michael replied that all kids should know about their biological parents, but Carly still disagreed. She thought it would be best if Wiley heard the truth in stages as he got older.
Michael insisted that Nina was Wiley's grandmother, and he wouldn't deprive her. Carly tried to talk him out of it, but Michael stood his ground. He said that Willow agreed with him, and he was Wiley's father.
Ava met with Nina at the Bistro, where they shared a table and had some coffee. Ava was chatty, and she wondered why Nina wasn't at Peter and Maxie's wedding. Nina divulged that she'd been disinvited after helping Maxie get ready. Maxie hadn't wanted to think of Nathan as she walked down the aisle, and she'd also thought that Nina had still been upset about Nelle.
Ava hadn't heard the details, and Nina revealed that Nelle had been her daughter. Ava was glad that Nina had learned the truth, even though there hadn't been a happy ending. Nina added that she had learned that Jax would always choose Carly. She proceeded to tell Ava all about Carly's version of what had happened on the cliff and the fact that she'd overheard Carly and Jax talking about the real version.
Nina said that she'd tried to talk to Jax, but he'd brushed her off. She knew that Nelle had been horrible, but she had been Nina's daughter. Carly had let Nelle fall to her death. Nina disclosed that she'd gone to the FBI, but Carly had gotten off. Carly had also threatened to keep Wiley away if Nina acted irrationally. Reluctantly, Ava said that she agreed with Carly, and she suggested that Nina put herself in Carly's place.
Ava reminded Nina that Carly had been at her husband's funeral when Nina had shown up and made a scene. Ava added that Nina had then gone to the cops. Nina could see that Ava was right, but she'd wanted to defend Nelle in death. Nina was upset that she had testified against Nelle at the custody hearing, but Ava replied that Nina had told the truth. Ava maintained that Carly felt attached to Wiley and would fight back.
Nina vowed that she intended to be a presence in Wiley's life, and Ava pointed out that Carly would do her best to keep Wiley away from Nina if Nina declared war. Nina replied that the war had already started, and she would not give Wiley up. Ava suggested that Nina be careful. She thought that Nina should apologize to Carly for the confrontation.
Nina disclosed that she had apologized to Michael and Willow, and they had shown up at the office with Wiley. It had been a good time -- until Carly had shown up. Nina was convinced that Carly hadn't been able to stand to see a happy Wiley with Nina, but Ava urged her to make peace for Wiley's sake.
At Metro Court, Curtis was confused, and he told Sam and Dante that he'd been on a call and had seen Violet being "hustled out" of the hotel with Jackie and Gregory. Sam revealed that Liesl had crashed the wedding.
Maxie declared that she was marrying Peter, and Liesl couldn't stop her. She accused Liesl of kidnapping Peter prior to the wedding. Mac shouted that Liesl was a fugitive. Liesl declared that it hadn't been her, and she had been released. As she began to reach into her pocket, Chase jumped at her to stop her. Liesl insisted she didn't have a gun, and Jordan urged her to move slowly.
Liesl removed the paper from her pocket and handed it to Robert. He looked it over and pronounced the document legitimate. Liesl had been exonerated of Drew's murder and the attempted murders of Andre and Franco. Sam wondered why Dante wasn't surprised at the scenario. He declared that nothing surprised him. Jordan wondered if the document could be forged, and Liesl encouraged them to call the WSB.
Robert placed the phone call, and he announced that it was true. Liesl had been exonerated. Maxie wondered why Liesl had wanted to ruin the wedding. Liesl indicated that there had been new evidence that proved that she hadn't committed the crimes. Curtis asked who the suspect was, and Liesl clearly looked over at Peter. So did Anna and Valentin. Liesl maintained that the WSB was investigating a suspect.
Lucy accused Liesl of creating a nuisance, and she ordered Liesl to leave. Liesl insisted that no one would be getting married. After Anna ordered Liesl to leave, Liesl stated that Maxie had been fed "a pack of lies by those you trust most." Maxie also wanted Liesl to go, but Liesl declared that she objected to Maxie's wedding. Chase threatened to arrest Liesl, but Liesl wanted everyone to listen to Anna's twin sister, who had left a gift behind for Anna and Peter. She switched on a nearby television monitor.
Curtis and Sam went off to try to stop the video as Alex spoke on-screen. She stated that she wanted to tell the truth. Anna saw no need for the video to play in front of everyone, but Liesl proclaimed that she had also texted everyone a copy. Liesl wanted to protect Nathan's widow and his son. Alex went on to say that her ex-husband Dmitri had sent the flash drive, and she had something important to say that would change Peter's life. It was something that Anna had already known.
Alex exclaimed that she had been the one to sleep with Faison, and she was Peter's mother, not Anna. Peter broke down and began to sob as everyone looked at him. Sam and Curtis returned, unsuccessful in their efforts to stop the video. Maxie declared that Alex was crazy, but Anna acknowledged that it was true. "You knew," Finn said in dismay. Peter asked Anna why she hadn't told him, but Valentin spoke up. He said that Alex had hated what she'd done, and she'd given her memory to Anna.
Peter flipped out. "You knew this, too?" he asked Valentin. Maxie turned to Liesl. She realized what Liesl had meant when she'd stated that Peter wasn't the man he thought he was. Liesl nodded. Finn guessed that Anna had known the truth since she'd received the results of the DNA test. Anna was sorry, but Finn was furious that she had told Valentin and not him. Finn stormed off, and Chase ran after him. Finn demanded to be left alone.
Britt was annoyed with Liesl, but Liesl insisted that she couldn't allow Maxie to marry the liar. "And Saint Anna's halo needed to be removed," Liesl added. As Liesl looked over at Dante, she admitted that her mission hadn't been completed yet. Liesl shouted at Robert that he had promised to keep Maxie safe, and he had broken his promise. She thought that he should have proven Peter guilty, so she'd had to take control. Robert looked around and noted that he saw no justice, only broken hearts. "More is coming!" Liesl declared.
Jordan explained to Chase and Willow that she had no authorization to arrest Liesl. "Lies, even for the right reason, will end up hurting someone," Chase said. Jordan was aware of that, although Willow declared that there was always forgiveness. Chase wanted to hang around for Finn, and as Willow prepared to leave, Chase promised to call her.
Sam and Mac tried to comfort Maxie while Anna went over to Peter. He was still in tears and asked her why she had lied. Anna replied that he had needed to believe that she was his mother, but Peter told her she'd had no right to make that decision. Anna admitted that she had thought she'd been protecting him.
Peter asked how long Anna had known, and she replied that while she had always suspected, it hadn't been proven until the fall. Anna didn't think the news had to destroy Peter, but he lamented that he would never be the man he thought he was or the man that Maxie wanted him to be.
Jordan told Lucy and Curtis that she would have loved to have arrested Liesl. She had never trusted Peter, though, and she'd always believed him to have a "secret agenda." Curtis agreed that he had been suspicious, too. Jordan stressed that Peter had made Maxie happy, and Curtis thought that the wedding could still happen. He wondered if it really mattered who Peter's mother was. Lucy felt that it mattered most to Peter -- and to Finn, who hadn't known Anna's secret.
Lucy was glad that the event had played out before the wedding. Curtis excused himself and went to the bar. Lucy sensed that something was wrong. Jordan disclosed that she had lied to Curtis, and he had walked out on her. She had tried to fix her marriage, but Curtis no longer trusted her. Lucy admitted that she was not the right person to give relationship advice, but she hoped that Jordan would be able to get Curtis to return. Lucy walked away, and Jordan spotted Curtis at the bar. They made eye contact, but Curtis turned and left.
Liesl tried to explain that the man Maxie had intended to marry didn't exist. "Back off!" Sam shouted as Liesl tried to get close to Maxie. Robert thought that Maxie should give herself some time away from Peter, but Mac made it clear that it was Maxie's decision.
Anna and Valentin were happy that Maxie wasn't getting married, and Valentin confirmed that they'd tried to save Peter. "Too little, too late," Anna sighed. Valentin cited the fact that Peter had committed his own crimes and had lied to Anna and Maxie. He would deal with Peter in order to minimize the pain to their loved ones. Again, Anna said that it was too late, but she would trust Valentin. She had to look for Finn.
Maxie went over to Peter and assured him that she still loved him, and he was still Peter. She grabbed his hand and placed it on her belly. She noted that their daughter had kicked in agreement. Maxie wanted to get married, and she loved Peter for better or worse. Valentin sorrowfully closed his eyes as Maxie proposed.
Robert couldn't believe what he'd heard. "Doesn't this girl know when she's dodged a bullet?" he asked Mac. "Get over yourself!" Mac snapped. He accused Robert of having skeletons, and he pointed out that Peter had been shocked at the news. He thought they should wait, but his first priority was Maxie's happiness.
Sam and Britt agreed that Maxie was making a mistake, and she was better off without Peter. "I think everyone in this room knows that," Britt retorted. Maxie was nervous as Peter remained silent. Finally, he said that he couldn't believe that Maxie still wanted to marry him. She assured him that it didn't matter who his mother was, and there was to be no pity. Peter had her love, respect, and heart. They hugged.
Liesl turned to Valentin and declared that the wedding had to be stopped. Peter was a manipulator, and she had to keep James safe. Liesl was ready to click her pen, but suddenly, Valentin began to shout. He yelled that he could not allow the wedding to continue until Maxie learned who Peter really was.
Finn retired to his hotel room and finished up a phone call with Jackie in order to check up on Violet. He revealed that the wedding wouldn't be happening. There was a knock at the door. It was Chase, who announced that he wasn't leaving because Finn shouldn't be alone. Finn insisted that he wanted to be alone. Chase understood. "I love you, brother," Chase called out. Finn closed the door and began to cry. Shortly after, Finn stood and looked out the window. There was another knock at the door. It was Anna.
Willow returned to the Quartermaines' and told Carly and Michael about all that had happened at the wedding. She had felt terrible for Anna and reported that Finn had walked out. Chase had been worried. Carly was aghast as Willow indicated that she needed a "dose of Wiley." Carly asked about the gatehouse, and Willow joyfully told her how adorable it was, especially with all the renovations that Michael had insisted on.
Willow invited Carly to visit, although she pointed out that Chase had been her first guest. Willow added that she had her own life in the place when she wasn't spending time with Wiley.
At the Bistro, as Nina and Ava chatted, Nina received a phone call from Michael. He invited her to visit with Wiley, and Nina was thrilled. She readily accepted his invitation and told Ava that Michael understood the importance of family. Nina was the only part of Wiley's mother to remain. Ava reminded Nina that Willow was Wiley's mother, and Nelle was the birth mother. Nina promised to remember and said that she would apologize to Carly.
