Frisco's music tour is a cover for his WSB work. Felicia, who doesn't know her
hubby's back in the secret service, is being kept prison at a french chateau.
Sean and Frisco are led around on a series of wild goosechases before being led
to Felicia's whereabouts.
There, Frisco dressed up as a waiter and Sean in
knight's armor, find the rather drunk princess and escape. They don't realize
that they were allowed to escape by her captor, the supposedly-dead Cesar
Faison. Still believing the WSB was behind the kidnapping, Frisco tells Sean
he's quitting and not to tell Felicia the truth.

Katherine decides to but Duke's Club,
renaming it Delafields, and takes Frisco on as a singing partner. Anna

and meet up with Casey.
After seeing a news report that
showed Robin holding a crystal fragment she found on Spoon Island, Faison
decides to go to Port Charles. He's looking for the crystals himself. An asian
woman named Desiree arrives in town and manages to rent Spoon Island, much to
Ned and Dawn's chagrin. Her lover, an author named P. K. Sinclair, joins her.
Sinclair is Cesar Faison's plum de nom and he writes a series about a heroine
named Davnee. Davnee looks just like Anna Devane. Cesar assigns Desiree to get
the Wellington collection from it's owner, Sean. "Never underestimate him.
He mustn't know I'm even remotely involved," Cesar instructs her on his old
foe, Sean. When Sean won't sell, Faison shows up and reminds him that he could
tell Anna and Robert the truth about their old friend Donley. Sean agrees to
sell, once he figures out what Cesar's game is.
Where are the Crystals?
On Spoon Island, Cesar's men are
digging around looking for more crystal pieces. He's also writing his next
Davnee installment called the Crystalline Conspiracy. Noticing Robin's
resemblance to Anna, he has Jacques do a background check on the little girl.
After finding out that Robin is indeed Anna's child, Desiree puts the pieces together
and figures out that Davnee is really Anna. "She's in every book I've
written," he confesses. [transcript]
Robin and Casey sneak onto the
island looking for crystals. Anna figures out where Robin went and arrives to
find her errant daughter. Cesar hides, though Anna almost sees him on the
staircase, and Desiree helps her locate Robin. Desiree almost gets Robin's
crystal but Anna insists she give it back so that Robin won't return to the
island looking for it. Robin's dragged home by her furious mother while Desiree
bemouns not bumping Anna off. Cesar had ordered her not to hurt Anna or Robin.
Arriving on the docks, Anna grounds Robin and angrily throws away her crystal.
Anna becomes worried after discovering Casey isn't the security repairman.
Learning that a man is using
Robert's badge, which was in the pocket of the suit Robin stole from her father,
the girl locates a very sick Casey. Anna then finds them both after Robin's
friend Rowdy tips her off that Robin's lied again. They take Casey to the
hospital and an upset Robin is openly hostile to both her parents.
Casey's illness baffels everyone, as it appears that he's dying of old age despite the
fact that he's a young man. Robert and Anna are thrown by Robin's devotion to Casey
and her shutting they out. Robin retrieves the crystal from the cafeteria, and as
she and Casey are holding the crystal, Anna and Frisco burst in the room. The blue
glow surrounding the two scare Anna and she begs Robin to come away from Casey. She
wearily accepts the alien story, and though Frisco isn't biting, the two sneak Casey out
of the hospital, hiding him at the Anna's house.
Harrison's fit to be tied, as he
saw Casey as the ultimate genuine pig to glorify Harrison's career, and he calls in the
Air Force. Anna, Robin, and Frisco lie to Robert about Casey, but Robert knows
Anna's lying to him. He pointely reminds her that he hates being lied to, and what
losing his trust will cost her. Casey tells Anna and Frisco that one of his planet's
spaceships crashed on earth years ago, leaving the crystals behind, and Casey needs the
crystals to return to his planet, which is dying. The crystal gives life in Casey's
hands, but in someone else's, it could cause annihilation of earth.
