We also have Monday’s GH recap where Holly and Felicia found Ethan as he was being auctioned for execution, Gregory collapsed, and the CCRB came to a decision on Chase’s case.

Robert and Diane have to pull over when his car starts smoking. He apologizes and they discuss cars until road side assistance text her to say they’ll be two hours.

He claims he can fix it faster than that. She’d like to see that.

As he works on the engine, he asks why she works for Sonny. She says it’s for the astronomical money. But representing Spinelli for him made her feel appreciated and confused.

Representing Sonny has been interesting and she’s like a lot of the work she’s done “navigating” the legal system. Jason was a great help with that. But she knows where the line is and won’t cross it.

Robert admires her and her strong personality. He thinks he has the engine fixed.

He gets her to put her finger on it while he starts it up. When he does, it shoots oil at her.

He explains that his father called and offered to talk but he had nothing to say to him. Willow won’t tell him what to feel but she thinks they should invite him to the wedding for the sake of his sisters. It would cement that they are all in this together.

She’s sure even Nina would know she’s not welcome. But she can handle her.

Willow tells him he’s the centerpiece of his family, the one who anchors them all. Donna and Avery need him more than ever.

Michael agrees that they need to set an example for them. That’s more important that anything going on between him and his dad.

She beams. He thanks her for reminding him of what matters.

Willow admits she’s jealous of his bond with his siblings and how natural it is. She makes him promise to foster that with their kids. He makes her make the same promise.

She knows they have a scary thing looming over them, but she doesn’t want it to get in the way of what this marriage means.
