Over the summer of 1983, Celia grew suspicious of Grant's intentions. Why was he spending so much time in Dr. Jerrold's lab? Why did have scars on his face? Were the marks from plastic surgery? Celia's questions concerned Natalie and Gregory, and rather than allow her to jeopardize their mission, they threatened to have her "eliminated." As the assignment progressed, a tormented Grant began to question his motives. He loved Celia -- not the DVX! The turning point came in a showdown at the lab, when Grant, paralyzed by an internal conflict, could not carry out his orders to kill Professor Jerrold. Just then, gunfire erupted, and Professor Jerrold slumped to the floor, dying from a gunshot inflicted by DVX chief Gregory Malko! Gregory watched as Professor Jerrold died in Grant's arms, uttering, "keep the disc safe....."
The DVX ordered Grant to marry Celia
Under the threat of death, Grant carried out his orders to steal the valuable energy disc. In a wild chaotic scene, Luke got hold of the disc and ended up abducted, along with Holly and Celia, during an international exposition being held in Port Charles. Gregory killed Natalie, then threatened to murder the hostages unless a microfilm (containing the one-of-a-kind equation needed to create the Prometheus Disc) was turned over to him. Grant switched sides, and saved the day.
