He came back on February 3, 2017. ”Jason” and Curtis Ashford were there too as Brick helped to find Morgan Corinthos’ real killer. “Jason” was familiar with Brick but Curtis has just met him and asked questions about the equipment Brick was using which made Brick upset.

On September 26, Brick helped Sonny trace the mysterious call from Russia related to Patient 6 on Sonny’s private line. Griffin Munro gave Brick the name Piotr Boronsky to research since Ava Jerome was at his clinic.

On September 3, 2020, Brick meets Sonny at Turning Woods. Brick sees Cyrus Renault and tells Cyrus that he knows who Cyrus is. Cyrus claims he is volunteering at this facility.

On September 9, Brick confronts Valentin Cassadine and Martin Grey at the Metro Court Hotel. He later flirts with Carly and talks to her about how Mike is doing.

On December 16, Sonny and Jason meet with Brick at the Brooklyn Union Pub. He tells them they were lucky he was in the area. Also he was sorry to hear that Dev had died since he had helped Dev out with forged documents.
