Cam thinks the cop should question Peter. He worries the fire could hurt the case against him. Dante assures him there are so many charges against August that he will never walk free again. Cam wants him to pay for what he did to Franco. Upset, he walks off. Dante promises Liz he will find who did this and leaves.

When Cam returns, he says that he’s been imagining Franco was in his studio painting. Now it’s all gone. “Kinda feels like we are losing him all over again,” she says. They hug. He tells her how weird the timing of this is considering what happened with her ring. She takes it out and looks at it.

Ned shows up as flustered Maxie runs out the door. He asks to speak to his daughter alone so Chase exits. “Why does your grandmother think you’re in trouble?” he demands. She claims she just moved out for privacy so Chase could have easier access. Her father asks if she’s falling for Chase. She insists she’s not. He reminds her he was just rejected by Willow and she kept his child from him. His daughter insists they are getting along and asks him to stop glaring at Chase. He admits that he could see them as a couple. They have a child and will always be bonded.

anna valentin discuss brook lynn GH

Sitting with Anna at Kelly’s, Valentin tells her how beautiful she is. They’ve both been thinking about their kiss on New Year’s and how they’ve been to busy to revisit it. He assures her there’s no rush. He’s not going anywhere. She asks him to exploit his relationship with Victor to find out what’s going on. Laura asked him the same thing. He agrees to help and has already started attempting to get to the bottom of why his father is trying to unite the family.

valentin wants to be feared GH

He explains that he and his father have been getting along famously. They’ve been playing a game. She doesn’t doubt that Victor wants to get to know him better. He concedes he and his father share a desire for revenge on Brook Lynn. Anna wonders if that’s necessary. He won’t forgive the way she hurt him and his daughter. She’s surprised to hear it’s important for him that the world fears him. She didn’t think that was who they are anymore. He reminds her that’s exactly who they are. Propriety is overrated and they don’t need to respect the rules.

Before he leaves, he says, as her friend, that he doesn’t want to see her get hurt. If she is getting involved with Valentin, he hopes she’s careful. After he leaves, Valentin assures Anna that he will stop things if Victor’s plan goes too far. She’s not sure she trusts him.
