At Sasha and Brando's apartment, Sonny and Nina tried to comfort Sasha and Gladys. Sonny hugged Sasha, who thanked Sonny for his help. On Sonny's way out, Nina asked Sonny what Sasha would do about the guardianship without Brando. Before he could answer, Sonny received a call from Alexis, who told Sonny that Diane had been stabbed.
After Sonny left, Gladys showed Sasha old photos of Brando from her phone. Gladys was remorseful that she and Brando hadn't always gotten along. Sasha remarked that she was completely alone without Brando. Gladys took Sasha by the hand. "You and I became family the second you married my son. That doesn't change now. So, I got news for you, kid. You are stuck with me," Gladys said.
Sasha smiled, and she said she was glad that Gladys considered her family. Gladys suggested the two make plans for Brando's funeral. Later, Gladys revealed that the funeral home had refused to take Sasha's card because of a hold that had been placed due to the guardianship. Nina offered to give them her own bank card. Sasha and Gladys thanked Nina for her help, and Nina said that the two should get used to her help because Nina wasn't going anywhere.
In Jacksonville, Carly was surprised when Drew appeared outside her hotel room. Inside, the two talked about Brando's death. Drew assured Carly that her children were safe in Port Charles. Carly told Drew she appreciated that he'd flown to Jacksonville to check on her.
Carly told Drew about the city's plans to move Virginia's grave and others to make room for a new beach parkway. Carly shared that she'd been told she had no legal standing because she wasn't a resident of Jacksonville. Drew encouraged Carly to keep fighting, and he said there were other ways to enact change. Drew said that he would use Aurora to help Carly in her fight, and he and Carly toasted to the plan.
Drew remarked that it had gotten late and that he needed to find a hotel room. Carly invited Drew to stay with her as a guest on the couch. Drew was hesitant, but Carly pleaded, and Drew agreed to stay.
At the hospital, Portia told Curtis that Diane had been stabbed. Portia told Curtis that Jordan hadn't been pleased that Portia had condoned the hospital leak to the Invader. Jordan appeared, and she asked for Portia's help.
Curtis stayed behind by the nurses' station when Sonny arrived to ask for an update on Diane. Curtis said that Diane was in surgery. Sonny was surprised that Curtis had told him, given the recent thaw in their friendship. Curtis said that he owed Sonny because Marshall had told Curtis that Sonny had learned that Marshall was on antipsychotic medication and that Sonny had kept quiet.
In Portia's office, Portia told Jordan that Diane's wounds had been consistent with Ava and Brando's. Portia shared that the hook used on Diane had contained the same venom found in Brando's system. Portia added that Finn had located an anti-venom, but Jordan admitted she had something more on her mind. "The last time our victim survived, our assailant made sure the next strike would kill. I doubt this will be any different," Jordan said.
Outside Portia's office, Jordan called Rory, and she asked him to stand guard outside Diane's door.
Back in the hallway, Curtis shared with Portia that Jordan had said something strange. Curtis recalled that Jordan had wondered if a person could truly know another person, and he added that it had been as if Jordan thought that Curtis and Portia were keeping secrets from each other. Curtis said he was certain that Jordan had projected, and he declared that he and Portia were "as solid as it gets."
Curtis called Jordan a "poor thing," and he said that because Jordan had kept secrets from him, Jordan thought that everyone else had secrets, too. A nervous Portia said there was something she had to take care of, and she left to confront Jordan.
In the interrogation room at the Port Charles Police Station, Dante questioned Dex about Diane's stabbing. Dex said that he'd been outside the garage when Diane had been attacked. Dante wondered how Dex hadn't seen anyone enter the garage, and he suggested that Dex had lied.
Dante remarked that Dex had been in the vicinity of all three attacks, but an animated Dex swore that he was being truthful. Dex reminded Dante that Dex had given first aid help to both Ava and Diane. Dante left the room, and he encouraged Dex to call a lawyer. Instead, Dex called Sonny. "I'm in trouble. I need your help," Dex said.
Sonny arrived at the police station. Dante told Sonny that Dex had been at the scene during all three attacks. Sonny entered the interrogation room, and Dex proclaimed his innocence. Sonny stared at Dex, and he seemed to ponder whether Dex had told the truth.
Just then, Dante and Jordan entered. Sonny wanted to know if Dex was under arrest. Neither Dante nor Jordan said anything. "That's a no. Come on, let's go," Sonny told Dex.
Jordan was surprised the police had nothing to hold Dex on. Jordan shared her suspicion that there was something "off" about Dex, and she encouraged Dante to continue to dig into Dex's past.
Later, Jordan was in her office when an angry Portia stormed in. "Curtis told me about your little divorce chat. How dare you?" Portia snarled.
At the hatchet range, Cameron and Josslyn joined Trina and Rory on a double date. Josslyn said that she was happy Trina had ended up with Rory instead of Spencer. Trina replied that she was happier than she'd ever been and that she hoped for a "fun and uncomplicated" relationship.
The double date came to a halt when Rory received Jordan's phone call about Diane's attack. Rory gave everyone the news, and he shared that a suspect had been brought in for questioning. Rory made Trina, Josslyn, and Cameron promise they would all go home together. As Rory left, Josslyn begged Rory to tell him who the suspect had been. "All I can tell you is it's someone who's been questioned before and has been spotted at all three crime scenes," Rory said.
After Rory left, Josslyn remembered having warned Dex that the police had wanted to question him after one of the previous attacks. Josslyn went to leave for the hospital to get an update on Diane. Alone, Cameron called out Trina for having avoided him since Trina had learned that Cameron had covered for Spencer. Cameron said that Trina had every right to be mad. "Good, because I am," Trina shared.
Trina assured Cameron that she wouldn't hold on to a grudge against him. Cameron said that he'd been torn between two people he'd cared about, and he asked if Trina had ever experienced anything similar. Trina flashed back to when Josslyn had told her that she'd been alone with Dex. "Yeah, I guess I have," Trina said in response to Cameron's question.
Later, Josslyn arrived at the police station. Dante told Josslyn that Dex had been brought in for questioning and that Dex had already left with Sonny.
After Sonny had left the interrogation room with Dex, Sonny ordered Dex to go for a ride with him. Dex got into a car with Sonny, and he thanked Sonny for the ride home. Unbeknownst to Dex, Sonny had other ideas. "We're gonna make a stop first," Sonny said menacingly.
