He confirms he was job-hunting, and starts naming employers when she asks for names.. but not, she doesn’t really think it was him. He gets ready to leave when she says he hopes Carly doesn’t keep him waiting.. he jokes “it’s not like I haven’t got all day”. She remembers the masked gunman repeating the same phrase to her! Jake asks if she is okay?
Fluke meets Helena at the docks.. “partner”. They gloat that their plan worked perfectly – Anna unmasking Faison, Julian and Alexis setting Luke free.. everyone now believes he IS the real Luke. It went perfectly, except for Faison’s escape – Helena wanted it to be more public, the hostage was intentional, even though Liesl was upset Nathan got shot. Luke expresses concern about that, but she made sure her operative didn’t fire a kill shot. he is a total professional. Her man had the PCPD immobilized, and was spectacular.. Luke asks who “soldier boy” is..? She says he is a skilled operative who has been conditioned by a professional team.. he take orders, but has no memory. He is the perfect weapon.
Fluke laments that Michael rebuffed his offer to work for ELQ, but Helena says they have something to build on with the 15% from Jerry Jacks. She reminds him they have Soldier Boy at their disposal.

Carly arrives at the Metro Court very upset, is about to pour herself a drink when Jake says he can help her with that!
A nurse interrupts Nathan and Maxie, and tells Maxie to continue her rounds. He thanks for her for the visit.. and the kiss.
Delia thanks Betsey, who says Ava is a louse.. they agree they both love their children, but it breaks Betsey’s heart that Franco keeps committing such vile crimes.
