Willow vents to Carly about how angry she still is with Nina. Carly flashes back to reading the DNA tests again and then advises her not to let Nina live in her mind.

Portia is glad everyone is okay. She’s impressed Curtis saved the day. He’s not feeling like much of a hero and blames himself for what happened. Marshall was only trying to make things right and he gave him a hard time.
She points out his father didn’t give him a lot of reasons to trust him. None of this was his fault. He takes out Marshall’s meds but doesn’t ask her to explain them.
When Stella returns, she apologizes to Portia for keeping things from her. The doctor can’t blame her for doing that to protect her family. After she takes off, Stella asks Curtis when he will make Portia an official part of the family.

Laura visits Liz at Shadybrooke and warns her that she will likely go through withdrawals from all the sleeping pills. The nurse is annoyed she never saw this coming. Finn shows up with flowers.
She’s confused since she asked him not to visit. He didn’t want her to think he’d abandoned her. “You are hurting me more than you realize,” she says. The nurse worries she could hurt someone.
They remind her it was all caused by pills. She says there is a psychological element that can’t explain. Something is broken in her and she needs to fix it. She convinced herself to move on before she was ready.
Liz says that when they are together, she feels like everything is alright. If she keeps thinking that, she will never face what’s really wrong.

Laura walks him out. He beats himself up. She assures him this isn’t his fault. He hates this. The mayor tells him she had her own fight with mental illness and it caused a lot of trouble with her family.
Finn wonders if what’s happening to Liz has to do with more than just losing her husband. She tells him he needs to respect Liz’s request for space.
Laura returns to Liz, who worries that she will be charged with something. The mayor assures her that won’t happen. But she worries that there could be more going on than just the sleeping pills. Could something more recent have happened to trigger her behavior.
Liz declares she needs to lie down. Laura leaves her alone and the nurse thanks her for coming.
When Finn gets to General Hospital, Terry asks after Liz. He admits she wouldn’t tell him how she’s really doing. He relates what she said. It’s hard for him to stay away as she’s asked. Terry assures him they will find their way back to each other.
Finn thinks this might be about more than grief. Terry suggests that it could have something to do with her parents.
TJ runs into Portia. He hopes that Marshall will give Curtis the answers he needs, but doesn’t know what he could say.
