Anna And Peter: Showdown On The Pier!
Anna ducks out
of the Nurses’ Ball to make the rendezvous with Henrik on the pier. But
unbeknownst to her, Henrik - better known as Peter - is one step ahead of her.
It is Lulu who tips Peter off to the fact that the emails he’s received “from
his mother” were actually a trap laid by Anna. Peter is confident that he can
outmaneuver Anna. One thing Peter isn’t aware of, however, is that Sam has found
Faison’s lighter in his possessions and summoned Spinelli and Jason to hack into
his computer, bringing them yet closer to discovering his true identity. Peter
is also in the dark about the fact that Anna actually is his mother, and takes
offense that she would use his missing mama as bait. And when they come face to
face, there’s going to be a reckoning and it will all finally come to a head.
Nelle welcomes Michael’s support.
Drew learns valuable information.
Monica is sympathetic.

to them, Ava walks by the door and sees them in an embrace. Ava misconstrues
what’s happening and later confronts her beau, leading to them basically

After extracting a key piece

there - Robert presents Anna with his theory that it was Valentin who delivered
young Henrik to Faison. As Anna and Scorpio hash it out, he wants to go after
Valentin directly, but she shoots him down. Valentin, meanwhile, is doing some
slight shaking in his boots. Between Scorpio’s interrogation and Curtis’s
investigation into Henrik, the walls are closing in on Valentin. He warns Peter
about both Scorpio and Curtis, but Peter waves away his concern - about Curtis,
at least. Robert is less concerned for his own safety than he is for Anna’s when

through with the scheme.
