In an office, Stella tells Jordan that she can’t officiate Portia and Curtis’ wedding knowing that Trina could be his daughter. It’s not right.
Portia walks in and Jordan announces she has to attend the memorial.
Stella and Portia leave to pick up the wedding dress.
Curtis bumps into Jordan and tells her she’s brave to face Britt’s family on a day like today. They are both sure they would feel the same way Obrecht does.
She asks about the wedding and tells him she wants him to be happy. “That’s why…” she starts but drops it.
He guesses something is wrong but she evades answering and says she hopes for a happy ending.
Carolyn tells Liz that she has finished consulting on a case and is leaving town. She doesn’t want anything to do with the person who requested her help and neither should she.
She explains that Nikolas brought her to town. Speaking to him made it clear that the prince roped her into doing something wrong, even illegal.
Nikolas asked her to use her skills to suppress Esme’s memories. She refused and tells her daughter that the Cassadine does not have her best interests at heart.
Carolyn hopes she can earn her forgiveness one day. Liz thanks her for telling her this and for not calling her “Lizzie.”
Trina is confused when Spencer shows him the video confession that his father made.
She assumes he will use this to blackmail his way to custody of Esme’s baby.
Trina reminds him Esme is a monster and his father was acting in a rage. If he goes down this path, he will be deliberately destroying his father’s life.
Spencer wonders if she thinks he should let him get away with this. She urges him to think about why his father confessed and why Ava gave it to him. It could just be another game between them.
He thinks that’s fine if it saves his brother or sister. Trina doesn’t want to be in the middle of that mess.
Spencer remains confident that his plan will work. She wonders why he doesn’t just go straight to the cops.
They head into the chapel and he explains that he doesn’t want to turn this into a legal matter.
She tells him that by keeping this from the police, he’s not completely shutting the door on his dad.
He insists he only wants to protect his sibling. Jordan interrupts.
Trina leaves them alone to talk. She’s surprised to hear they have something to discuss.
Portia and Stella go to pick up their gowns. The doctor says that her butterflies have butterflies.
Stella wonders why she is particularly nervous. Portia guesses something is bothering her.
She tells her that she used to just think she needed her medical degree and daughter, but now she has Curtis and his family. This wedding is about all of them.
Stella tells her those are some beautiful sentiments. Sobbing Portia gives her an heirloom bracelet and asks her to wear it to the wedding.
She’s surprised when Stella refuses. Stella tries making an excuse but Portia pleads.
She reminds her of how she lied to Curtis for years. She’s not sure she would make the same choice again.
After Stella tries on her dress, Portia says now she knows everything will be perfect.
At Spring Ridge, Esme tries to swallow her boyfriend’s father being her baby’s father. Nikolas tells her there’s a lot to explain but she should trust him.
He claims that before she lost her memory, she told him about their strength of their bond. She wonders why his son is claiming the baby is his.
The prince says his son is lying. Besides, they have more important things to face like her precarious legal situation.
He hands her a document to sign, assuring her it will make sure her baby will be waiting for her when she is freed.
She assumes a lawyer should look at it but he claims it’s just a formality. Esme has a lot to process so he offers to come back tomorrow.
Once he’s gone, she asks her baby if they should trust him. She wonders why she doesn’t want to sign the document.
Nikolas heads to GH and bumps into Liz.
