On Cassadine Island, Luke was shocked when Tracy came into his room disguised as a guard. She told him about Olivia's vision of him in a casket calling for 'Spanx' to help him. He was impressed but wasn’t eager to leave with her. She told him that she didn’t want him to be a guinea pig for a madman, but Luke wouldn’t leave empty handed but tried to dissuade Tracy from procuring the cure on her own. She boasted that Jerry hadn't caught her yet and left. Meanwhile, Robin opened the lab door with Obrecht's finger before grabbing Ben to escape, but Jerry stopped her at the next exit door. Robin refused to let him near the baby, placed her hand on the cryo-chamber reactivation button and threatened to send the lab into a deep freeze, destroying all the research. Jerry reminded her about Obrecht being inside also and said that he didn’t think she could take someone's life but dared her to do so. Robin then pushed the button but was surprised when nothing happened. Jerry then told her that the cryogenics lab was moved to make room for her work. Suddenly, Obrecht rushed out looking for her grandson and to clobber Robin. Jerry thought she was lucky he was there to stop Robin. Meanwhile, Tracy approached and stayed hidden as Jerry sent Robin back to work. Jerry ignored Obrecht's plea to let her kill Robin believing she could complete the research and he said that he would deal with Robin. Then, Obrecht agreed and told Robin that she “needed to go see someone she loved just as much as she loves Patrick.” Tracy, who didn’t see Robin, then returned to Luke's room to wait for Jerry to bring the cure to them.
In Switzerland, Anna thought Robert was confused but he swore that he’d seen Robin…alive! Anna wanted him to stop because he’d only make things worse when he had to face the truth.
