Jason arrives at Spinelli’s door, asks for help tracking down Helena - the only person who can answer his questions.

Jason manages to overtake a guard on Cassadine Island. He almost gets to Helena – but is knocked out. When he awakens, he’s confronted by Nikolas. Nikolas informs him that his grandmother’s dying. Jason doesn’t believe him. But when he grapples with Nikolas and then gains entrance to her room, he finds a frail, diminished Helena. She confirms that it’s true, she’s at the end of her life, which is why she gave Jake back to Luke when he was here. And she intends to give Jason what he wants, too.
Meanwhile, Liz and Sam are shocked to find themselves not only on the same flight to find Jason, but sitting next to each other. Sam tries to dissuade Elizabeth from this mission, insisting she is ill equipped to handle the dangers. Elizabeth takes offense and calls her on her seeming disloyalty to Patrick. Eventually, they call a truce. They both end up finding Jason with Helena.
