Rafe: Susie, listen to me, ok? This is your conscience calling. Now listen closely -- don't do it, all right? Just don't -- no, Susie, that -- that is your brother's favorite toy. No, don't -- don't flush it. Great.

Rafe's Voice: You can give me a lifetime on earth?

James: Of course, I can't control what you do with it. But I imagine you'll go straight down there and sweep that delicate young flower off her feet.

Rafe: Ok. All right, well, then what would this cost me?

James: We'll talk about that when you've made up your mind.

Rafe: Yeah, except I can read the fine print, and it says you want my soul. I know Alison needs me, but I can't. I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't.

Alison: Please, Rebecca. I know that you're mad at me for closing down the shop while Kevin tests the candles, but I didn't know what else to do. I want to make things right for the both of us, but I'm not -- I'm not really sure how to do that. Please. Please, please come out and talk to me, ok, because I -- I just feel so alone and I don't know what to do anymore. Please? Please come out and talk to me?

Jack: Jamal. Hey. Jamal. Wake up, man.

Jamal: Yo. Jack, what's going on?

Jack: I don't know, you tell me. You've been out for a while. I've been trying to wake you up. You all right?

[Jamal groans]

Jamal: Something's wrong here, man. Where's Ali?

Jack: She wasn't here when I got here. She must've bailed when you fell asleep. What's going on here?

Jamal: This is not me asleep, man. This is more like me drugged or something. Oh, my God.

Jamal: Or that?

Jack: What, the candle?

Jamal: It wasn't here last night. God, she drugged me with that thing, Jack.

Jack: No, calm down, all right? Alison wouldn't drug you.

Jamal: No, I never would've thought so either, but she hasn't exactly been acting herself lately, now, has she?

Jack: Well, hey, hold on one second. Where you going?

Jamal: Where do you think? Somebody's got to stop all this before something really bad goes down.

Livvie: "Warmth." That's a good place to start.

Livvie: After these candles test positive for this, there's no way Alison will be able to explain it away.

Livvie: And everyone will finally be safe.

Jack: Livvie? I saw your car in the driveway. I know you're home.

Jack: What are you doing out there?

Livvie: You know, something crazy, I'm sure.

Jack: Ah. So this is how it's going to be?

Livvie: You made the choice, Jack. You chose sweet, innocent Alison over crazy, paranoid Livvie.

Jack: Ok. I came to apologize.

Livvie: What?

Jack: I was wrong. I was wrong about a lot of things, and you had every right to be upset. Look, Livvie, there is something strange about those candles. Ok, Jamal tried to talk to Alison the other night and one of those candles basically knocked him out for hours. And that camera? There is definitely something strange going on with that camera.

Livvie: Why, did something else happen?

Jack: No.

Livvie: You saw Rebecca again, didn't you?

Jack: Well -- I don't know if it's an optical illusion or some trick or what, but, yeah, she disappeared again.

Livvie: Ok, what happened before she disappeared?

Jack: Here, let's sit down. I went to the -- I went to the barn the other night when no one was there and I took some pictures. And when I developed them, Rebecca was standing outside the candle shop, except it was Rebecca's from over a century ago.

Livvie: Oh, my God. So now you know what I'm talking about.

Jack: But there's more I want to find out.

Livvie: Yeah, like what?

Jack: Well, you know, those old plates -- I'm basically out of them, the ones that came with the camera, so I ordered some from this antique camera web site and I'm hoping -- I'm hoping that when I get these that maybe -- maybe that'll explain all this.

Livvie: And if Rebecca still shows up in the pictures, then you'll know it's serious.

Jack: Oh, no, I do know it's serious.

Livvie: So is that what you came over to tell me?

Jack: I came over to tell you I'm sorry for calling you crazy, and you had every right to feel the way you felt. And it's basically tripping me out, too.

Livvie: I don't think there's anything worse you could've said to me.

Jack: Hey, sweetie, I know, and I'm sorry. I just don't want us to fight anymore. I miss you so much and I want you to come home with me. I don't want to be apart from you. No matter what's going on, we have to be together. Livvie, I love you more than anything.

Livvie: I love you, too, Jack.

[Door slams]

Alison: Jamal.

Jamal: You want to tell me what you did with Alison, because whoever you are, you're not the Alison I know.

Alison: Well, you kidnapped me.

Jamal: So that makes it ok for you to drug me with some crazy candle?

Alison: Jamal, I didn't drug you!

Jamal: What? Is that why I pulled a sleeping beauty all night long without being able to wake up?

Alison: Well, I just happened to light a candle so that you could relax a little bit.

Jamal: A little bit? Relax a little bit? Alison, I was out all night long.

Alison: Well, the candles only enhance what you're already feeling.

Jamal: You have no idea what you're dealing with here, Alison. You don't!

Alison: That is not true! Yes, I do! And pretty soon, everyone else will find out that there is nothing wrong with my candles or with what I'm doing.

Jamal: What are you talking about?

Alison: Kevin came by earlier to get some candles and he's going to have them analyzed, and do you want to know what he's going to find? Nothing. Zilcho.

Jamal: Well, you know what? Maybe there's some things in there that you don't know about.

Alison: No, that's impossible, ok? I've already started making --

Jamal: Oh, my gosh.

Alison: The candles myself. And I told you, there is nothing dangerous about my candles or Rebecca's candles. I've already told you that and you won't listen to me.

Jamal: Alison --

Alison: None of you will! The only thing maybe you're going to find in there is maybe some baby's breath or some dragon's blood or angel tears --

Jamal: Actually, Alison, you're starting to sound like a witch, you know that?

Alison: Well, what's the matter with magic? I've had magic in my life and it's wonderful!

Jamal: What? What are you talking about?

Alison: And now I have a gift! I have a gift and I can open up people's hearts. She showed me how to use it.

Jamal: Ali, come on.

Alison: Rebecca told me that I had a gift!

Jamal: So you were serious. You think that she talks to you. You think that lady in that picture talks back to you.

Rafe: Ok. It kills not to be with Alison. It kills to know that she's hurting, and I would do anything to be with her, anything to make her feel better. Anything. No, no, almost anything. Almost anything. That's your soul, Rafe. You can't give them that! But Alison is my soul.

Rafe: My wife. God, I love the sound of that.

Alison: Hmm. So do I.

Rafe: I wish this could go on forever.

Alison: I didn't mean that Rebecca talked to me --

Jamal: No, no, it's exactly what you meant, and it's the second time that you've said it. Alison, you think that she talks back to you.

Alison: You wouldn't understand, Jamal. It's --

Jamal: Hey, try me. Come on.

Alison: I can't.

Jamal: Alison, look, we were -- we were together for a long time. Ok, I loved you more than anything in the world. I still love you. And I know there's a part of you that still cares for me, too. Ok, so, come on, look at it from my point of view. All right, if I was in a barn, making candles, talking to a picture, and hearing her talk back to me -- come on, what would you do?

Alison: Jamal, sometimes you just need to trust people and trust what is in your heart.

Jamal: Well, my heart is telling me that you're in trouble right now. You're pushing away everybody that cares about you and you're cutting yourself off from the real world.

Alison: I'm not hurting anybody.

Jamal: Yes, you are. You're hurting yourself, Ali. Rafe is gone and he's not coming back. Losing yourself in some fantasy world is not going to change that.

Alison: That's not what I'm doing.

Jamal: That's exactly what you're doing, Alison. Look, why don't you just get rid of all of this stuff. All right, just give it up, ok, starting with that picture over there.

Alison: Jamal, there was once a time when you would've just believed in me.

Jamal: I don't -- I don't know what to do.

Alison: Maybe if you can't believe in me, then maybe there's nothing for you to do except leave.

Jamal: You can't live like this.

Alison: What are you going to do, you going to kidnap me again?

Alison: I know that you -- you think that me closing down the shop was wrong, but -- but what if what we're doing isn't right? What if it would be better for us and for everyone else if we just stopped? Would it just be better if -- if we got rid of everything?

Rebecca: Do you really want to get rid of everything, Alison? Do you really want to get rid of me?

Alison: I thought that you were never going to talk to me ever again.

Rebecca: I didn't think you wanted to hear what I had to say. You once told me that the world in this century was different from when I lived, that the people -- your people -- were more open, more accepting. If you destroy all this, if you destroy me, then all you'll have proved is that the world hasn't changed at all.

Jack: Livvie, I missed you so much.

Livvie: Oh, Jack, I missed you, too. And now that I know you're on my side, we can make this right together.

Jack: Yeah. For everyone. And I want to help Alison, too.

Livvie: Yes, and the best way to do that is to stop all this.

Jack: Hey, what are Alison's candles doing here?

Livvie: Oh, my dad's sending them off to the lab to have them checked, and I'm sure he'll find the proof we need to end all this.

Jack: Yeah. You know, I just can't imagine Alison putting something dangerous in these candles.

Livvie: You know, I was thinking that maybe --

Jack: Oh.

Livvie: I could take -- we could take your advice and forget about the candles for at least one night and -- oh, yeah, yeah, yeah -- and concentrate on each other. How's that sound?

Jack: Oh, that sounds good to me.

Livvie: Yeah?

Jack: I'd like that.

Livvie: All right, well, I'm going to pack and I'll be gone -- mmm -- for two seconds. Two.

Jack: Ok, two.

Livvie: I'll be right back.

Jack: Hmm.

Jack: "Warmth." Hmm. That's interesting. Think this is probably the one Lucy had. Here we go. Well, what the heck? It can't be too harmful. Let's try this baby out. All right.

Jack: Let me feel the warmth. Ah. It does make you feel kind of warm.

Jack: What's happening? What's happening?

Rafe: Please give me the strength to fight this. I am so tempted to trade my soul to be with Alison again. I'm so worried about what's going to happen to her. Please. Please just give me the strength. Please give me the strength.

Alison: But, Rebecca, the world has changed and things are different. My friends, they're not -- they're not trying to hurt me. They're just really worried about me, and I think that maybe they're right. I mean, what if I am using you and these candles to make up for what I feel in my heart, the loss of Rafe?

Rebecca: And what's wrong with that? Do you really believe that you should let go of people you love, as your friends are asking you to? Oh, Alison. Because I believe that you should take joy in the love that you had and let it continue to enrich your life. You learned to open your heart more than you ever believed possible with Rafe. You always had that gift, but he made you realize it, and now you can do that for other people.

Alison: I want to do the right thing. I just -- I don't know what to do. I'm just so confused.

Rebecca: It's because you're doubting yourself, listening to what everyone else tells you, believing everything except that which you feel. But I still heard you, Alison. I heard you defend me. I heard you defending what we're trying to do here for other people. Why can't you hear yourself anymore?

Alison: I want to bring love alive in my heart again and I want to bring it to others. It's just that --

Rebecca: It's a blessing and a burden, I know. People fight it, you fight it because love is work. Oh, and it can be so painful. But now you're doubting yourself and listening to other people. Now your blessing has become a burden, and so you're letting it go.

Alison: Where are you going?

Rebecca: I'm saying goodbye, my sweet. No longer believing means no longer believing in me. We won't be speaking anymore.

Alison: What will happen to you? Where will you go?

Rebecca: I'll go back to where I came from. And I'll hope that someday, people will know what my life was all about and I'll finally be able to rest in peace.

Alison: But I just -- I want to do the right thing, I do. I just -- I don't know what that is and I don't know if what we're doing is the right way to do it.

Rebecca: What does your heart tell you?

Alison: It tells me that what we're doing is good and that we don't need to stop this.

Rebecca: Then stand your ground and fight the fight that I couldn't.

Alison: Ok. I can. I'll do that. I will. I'll do that, Rebecca. Just -- just stay, ok? Just stay. I won't disappoint you, I promise. I won't.

Livvie: Jack, I'm ready to go!

Jack: Get them off me!

Livvie: Jack? Jack, what's wrong?

Jack: Get them off!

Livvie: Wait, wait --

Jack: Get them off me!

Livvie: No, no, no, no, no! Why did you do it? Why'd you light the candle, Jack? Jack, come on.

Jack: Get them off me! They're crawling all over me, Livvie! Get them off!

Livvie: It's ok, it's ok, it's ok.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Ricky: You think this candle's making you crazy, Frank? Well, let's see if you're right.

Kevin: What is it? What happened to him?

Livvie: I came downstairs and he had lit one of the candles!

Kevin: Come on, let's get him to the hospital!
