He asks if they’re coming or if they’re going.

Gladys practically falls over. “Excuse me?!”

She runs to get her water and Chad asks if she’s pushing her to sell the garage. Sasha says yes but that’s just her.

She trusts her. She talks about the holiday distractions and now that they’re over, it’s just her. No Brando or Liam.

She knew that was coming. Chase can see she just felt unprepared.

She starts stretching and says having a goal was helpful.

She’s felt stable and stronger the last few weeks. Chase thinks that means she’ll get her case reevaluated.

She admits she hopes so but once Gladys is in bed, the apartment is quiet. She cries that she’s listening for Brando’s humming while he brushes his teeth.

She wants to dream of him and is afraid if she does, she’ll get lost in the fantasy.

Chase thinks she’s grieving like any other widow. He thinks she’s doing the best she can and offers to listen if she needs to talk. Day or night.

From home, Brook Lynn plays the keyboard, a little frustrated. Cody comes in eating biscotti.

He finds them dry. She tells him they’re supposed to be dry. You dip them in coffee. She says she’s working on a new song for Chase and Blaze and it’s not working.

Cody eats the biscotti even though he doesn’t like it. He tells her Leo’s happy that she and Chase won’t be kissing anymore.

She’s hopeful that it’ll change. Cody mentions them working together. She shrugs. Chase is being honorable. Cody suggests she use this.

She’s thought of it, but she can’t use lies on him. She calls Chase who is still at yoga. She fixed his song.

He tells her they can discuss it tomorrow but she wants to change the song he’s singing tomorrow.

She wants him over to learn it now. She railroads him and disconnects before he can say now, and then Cody high-fives her after.

He says Willow swore her to secrecy. He asks for her honesty.

She snarls. Was she going to tell Wilow that Nina was her mother? She says she never would have.

He thinks she was getting back at Nina but Willow wanted to spare her the pain.

Drew asks why she lied to him. She claims she didn’t want him involved but he thinks it’s because she knew what she did was wrong.

She says he’s acting like she’s a puppetmaster. He gasps. She’s known since May.

He knows a lot was going on but she’s had months to come clean.

She knows but didn’t intend on hurting Willow, who didn’t want to know.

Drew yells that Carly keeping this secret has almost cost Willow’s life. 

She barks that her son didn’t tell her the truth. Drew says like mother like son.

He tells Carly that he thought they had something special and it’s a wake-up call to know that they don’t. Carly cries.

He doesn’t want her secrets and lies.

In Sonny’s office, Joss starts yelling at Sonny, prepared for a lecture.

He stops her. He didn’t call her there for a lecture.

He just wanted to see if she could make Michael understand that if he and Willow need anything, he’s there.

Nina arrives at Michael’s.

She knows how sick Willow is and wonders where that leaves Wiley if she dies.

“How dare you?” He asks.

She reminds him she’s his grandma. She knows about Willow’s leukemia. 

She saw a memo that wound up in her living room and knows she’s been sick for months. Months where she had no chemo which means her chances of survival got worse.

She judges Willow for waiting and worries how Wiley will take this if she dies.

Wiley rushes in. “Grandma!” He rushes her and hugs her. He wants to play.

Gladys goes to see Sonny. Her daughter-in-law needs his help. She needs to sell the garage. Sonny shrugs her off.

It’s not a big deal. It’s not as if she needs the money. Gladys squirms. Sonny asks what the issue is.

Is there a problem with Sasha? Gladys says it’s nothing specific.

He tells her they’ll look after each other and shakes her hand.

Later, he calls Brick to see if he’ll find the best oncologist for Willow.

He’s sure she did a lot for Oscar just by reading to him for the pain.
