Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) were shocked when Lulu (Emme Rylan) told them Dante was gone. She explained how Dante told her something was broken in him after his undercover assignment and he needed to get it fixed. When Rocco appeared and asked his mom about his dad leaving, Sonny took his grandson aside and told Rocco he had to be the man of the house and take care of his mom. Lulu expressed her fear to Carly that Dante wouldn’t be back. Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) was lead into court for his arraignment. When he saw Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) outside the courtroom, Kevin apologized for what Ryan did to Baldwin. But Franco reminded Kevin he should start by what he (Kevin) did to him. Franco reminded he trusted Dr. Collins but Kevin used him to help his psycho brother. Franco added he was through with him and with therapy. Lucy (Lynn Herring) overheard Franco’s remarks and assured Kevin although his intentions (to help Ryan) were good, his actions weren’t. Kevin told Lucy that he had to hire an attorney from out of town as no one in Port Charles would touch is case. Enter Llanview lawyer Nora Buchanan (Hillary Bailey Smith). Kevin told Nora he wanted to plead guilty. Nora discouraged against it. Heeding his attorney’s advise, Kevin pleaded not guilty. D.A. Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson) wanted bail denied. Lucy spoke as a character witness and Kevin was granted bail in the amount of $100,000 and had to surrender his passport. Maxie (Kristen Storms) told Nina (Michelle Stafford), Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) she (Maxie) ran a DNA test on Sasha; results proved she was Nina’s daughter. Peter (Wes Ramsey) admitted his suspicions were aroused Liesl (Kathleen Gati) had something on Valentin. Valentin lied to Nina that Liesl knew about Nina stabbing Cassandra Pierce with the syringe. Valentin encouraged Nina not to confront her aunt about the blackmail. When his bail was paid, Kevin thought Lucy posted it but she said she hadn’t. Viewers saw it was Laura who paid Kevin’s bail. Alexis requested Liz and Laura at GH as part of Gail’s final will request.
Residents of Port Charles have gathered at General Hospital at Alexis’ (Nancy Grahan) invite per Gail Baldwin’s (The late Susan Brown) will. Alexis handed each in attendance an envelope containing a piece of the original blueprint of the hospital from fifty-six years. They were to go to the location from the blueprint where they’d find another envelope. Laura (Genie Francis) greeted her mother Dr. Leslie Webber (Denise Alexander), who later traded barbs with Monica (Leslie Charleson) as they looked for their envelopes.

She decided to donate the items and money raised for the sale to the ball itself. She found an old handkerchief belonging to Alan and remembered the time Alan opened the ball with a song from Cinderella that made all the ladies there feel like princesses. She added that Monica was Alan’s queen and apologized for being young, greedy and stupid by taking Alan from Monica. In the hospital chapel, Laura and Sonny (Maurice Benard) reminiscence about the first time they met “I think you are a good guy in a bad guy’s clothes,” Laura said. Sonny smiled as he walked by the plague for The Stone Cates Memorial Wing. Bobbie helped Elizabeth find her envelope. Nurse Spencer said she was proud of the kind of nurse Elizabeth became as she knew Audrey was. Next, Bobbie ran into Carly, whose envelope was in the pediatric wing where the donation was made on Michael’s (Chad Duell) behalf. Carly told Bobbie she (Carly) was pregnant. Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) told Lucy there wasn’t a chance for them to get back together because he still loved Laura. Elizabeth thanked both Bobbie and Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) for helping to make her a good nurse. Once everyone have found their envelopes, they all gathered at the nurse’s station where Alexis instructed them to open their envelopes. Surprisingly, they contained confetti which Franco tossed in the air. Alexis read a letter from Gail, who apologized for having them participate in a scavenger hunt for confetti. The letter explained how Gail wanted everyone to come together to remember how important General Hospital was to them. Scott walked to Gail’s photo in the portrait gallery and removed the black cover.

Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) arrived at Laura’s (Genie Francis) and asked her why she paid his bail. Laura explained she felt he wasn’t a danger to society. Plus as he’d been locked at Ferncliff for months she didn’t feel it was fair for him to be in lockup. When Lulu arrived, she immediately though Kevin was Ryan. After Kevin left, Lulu told her mother about Dante going away for treatment because of what he went through in Turkey. Lulu said it was difficult going into the office thinking about Ryan’s attack.

Jordan (Briana Henry) told Ava (Maura West) and Julian (William deVry) that the Royal Mounted Canadian Police found a hand in the water they believed to be Ryan’s (Jon Lindstrom) so they’ve closed their investigation. Ava reasoned the left-handed Ryan cut off his own hand to make the authorities believe he were dead.

Valentin demanded Willow be monitored closely from now on and if her behavior towards Charlotte didn’t change, Cassadine warned they’d be hearing from his lawyers. Finn showed Chase the engagement ring he brought for Anna and told his brother of his plan to propose to Ms. Devane, adding if Roxie the bearded dragon was unavailable Chase could be his best man. Lulu told Nina and Valentin she was leaving town for awhile and that Laura would be helping to keep an eye on Charlotte as she wasn’t taking the little girl with her. Jordan told Laura about the right hand found by the Canadian police that they believed belonged to Ryan Chamberlain and how they were closing the case. After talking with both Maxie and her son, Anna realized each thought the other wasn’t interested in a relationship.
