At Kellys, Bobbie, Lulu and Lucas remember Auny Ruby on the 16th anniversary of her death. She orders heart-shaped pancakes for them.. Carly can’t make it as she’s looking after a sick friend, Bobbie is glad she has something else to focus on. She thinks Luke changed his mind, and finds out about the clinic party at the Haunted Star. Lulu thinks it’s strange that Luke hasn’t joined them to honor Aunt Ruby and phones him.
Fluke visits Luke in the basement on Elm Street, he’s excited about the party.. especially when the boat explodes. He will watch all those people go sky-high – Luke is terrified for his loved ones, why is he doing this? Luke says they’re family, but Fluke denies being Bill Eckert.

He agrees, and leaves Luke to ponder WHY is he doing this..?
Jeromes plan an escape
At Pentonville, Ava visits Julian – she thinks Sonny is trying to kill her, but Julian says she’s blaming the wrong person, it could be their boss. Julian needs to fill her in on who’s been running the show since they’ve been locked up, she hears all about Bill Eckert – he may have sent the guard to kill her. He tells her he got himself locked up for protection – he needs to get to Lucas, but doesn’t have a way out. Ave replies that she does! Madeline is being transported by prison van back to Port Charles tonight at 6:30pm. She is going to be on the van, and Julian says he is coming with her. He insists she will need protection, “let’s do this together”. He has something else to tell her, when a guard appears and drags her away.
Franco make s a call!
Guards visit Franco to check his cell and find the phone! The guard wants to send him back to solitary, but Franco offers him a deal. He draws him a sketch.. a priceless Franco that is worth a fortune, it’s psycho-art! The guard takes it, and leaves him with the phone. He makes a call…
At Shadybrook, Heather brings Nina a jelly donut and Nina secretly tells her the call was from Franco, not her lawyer. He’s in prison but has a phone in his cell.. he cares about her, and will find his way back to her. She also told Franco all about her new friend Diana.. he’s happy and grateful to her, and hopes to meet her one day. Heather suggests that next time he calls, she can say hello? Nina receives a call from her “lawyer” again – it’s Franco and she tells him her friend Diana wants to talk to him… “hello Franco”.. he knows it’s Heather!
Nina sits down to eat her donut, while Heather explains she is now in Shadybrook – he warns her to stay away from Nina. She says she seems SO alone and vulnerable, but now she is her new friend Diana. She can think of no better way to punish him than crush his little bird. He betrayed her after she did everything he asked, and will get her revenge. Franco begs her, but Heather reminds him there is nothing he can do to stop her. Nina gets back on the phone, but the call has been disconnected. The phone rings again, and Nina tells Heather to give her the phone – before Franco can say anything, the guard says time is up! Heather pats her head and says everything will be alright.
