A weekly column highlighting the Port Charles happenings during the past week on General Hospital. Read below to find out what you missed or to refresh your memory in time for next week.
Madeline (Donna Mills) was surprised by Valentin’s (James Patrick Stuart) arrival at Pentonville. Valentin told Madeline that as Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) mother she had information he needed. At Charlie’s Bar, Nina and Maxie (Kristen Storms) questioned Peter (Wes Ramsey) about how he was able to afford to buy The Inquister. Peter assured he was not without resources and vowed to make The Inquister the voice of truth in journalism. Michael (Chad Duell) told Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) how he hoped Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) would be able to keep baby Wiley. Meanwhile with Sam (Kelly Monaco) present, Alexis (Nancy Grahan) told Brad and Lucas that the judge would have to make the decision as to the best home for Wiley. Upset, Brad left. Peter tried to poach Maxie to join him at The Inquister, but Nina promoted Maxie to Creative Director at Crimson. Peter congratulated Maxie on her promotion. Valentin offered Madeline the legal services of Nora Buchanan if she told him the truth about Nina’s twenty year coma. Valentin read Nina’s medical file and believed that she had the baby. Madeline admitted that Nina had a daughter but she (Madeline) had gotten rid of the baby through an illegal adoption through a baby broker in order for the girl not to have claim to any of the Reeves fortune. Madeline told Valentin she could help him find Nina’s daughter but first he had to get that high power attorney of his to secure her release. Drew (Billy Miller) questioned Margaux (Elizabeth) about why she kissed him…was she using him to convince him to help her get Sonny? Margaux insisted that she kissed him because she liked him. After Julian told them about the birth mother changing her mind about the adoption, Nina and Maxie talked about the pain over losing a child. Brad arrived at Charlie’s Bar and asked Julian (William deVry) for his help; he told Julian that the birth mother wasn’t the mother of the baby. Sonny told Carly about the job he did for Joe, the body in Croatin and how it ended up in the foundation of Julian’s bar. Lulu (Emme Rylan) met with Peter, who offered her a position at The Inquister as an investigative reporter. He promised that with her talent he could give her the writing career she deserved. Peter told Lulu to meet him at The Metro Court on Friday and if she’s interested to prepare to negotiate. Valentin declined Madeline’s deal; he’d find Nina’s daughter without her. Drew and Margaux decided to give a possible relationship a chance. But after she left, Drew called Curtis (Donnell Turner) and told him he needed a background check on the new D.A. Michael joined Chase (Josh Swickward) at Charlie’s Bar and talked about how he regretted meeting Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and how he was burying his son tomorrow. Lucas’ arrival at Charlie’s Bar prevented Brad from explaining to Julian how the birth mother wasn’t Wiley’s mother.
At The Floating Rib, Drew (Billy Miller) talked more about Margaux (Elizabeth Hendrickson). Drew was convinced that Margaux was hiding something and he was determined to find out what it was. Curtis didn’t want Drew to possibly miss out on a romance with Margaux because he was burned in love in the past. Julian (William deVry) listened outside Diane’s (Carolyn Hennesey) office as Alexis (Nancy Grahan) and she discussed the adoption case. After Alexis and Diane left the office so Diane could pick up a file her paralegal was delayed in bringing, Julian came into Diane’s office and took photos on his cell phone from information in a file on Diane’s desk. At The Metro Court, Margaux looked at The Inquister’s front page story which featured a photo of she kissing Drew. Peter (Wes Ramsey) appeared and told D.A. Dawson that he is the publisher of The Inquister. August suggested they work together as Margaux was on the pulse of everything that went on in Port Charles, she could feed him news stories so he wouldn’t have the need to post stories about her. Margaux refused to work with Peter. Since the month was up for Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) to convince Nina to change her mind, she decided to go through with the divorce. After Nina left to meet with Diane to sign the divorce papers, Valentin told Maxie that as she couldn’t bring herself to be angry with Peter, he wanted her to stop using Nina against him (Valentin). Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Micahel (Chad Duell) talked about how to deal with grief over the loss of a child. Sonny encouraged Michael not to make the same mistake he (Sonny) did and lean on the people who love him. Lulu (Emme Rylan) declined Peter’s job offer of the chief investigative reporter position. But after talking with Drew and unable to get Cain’s help after she was demoted to doing puff pieces, Lulu reconsidered and accepted the job. Valentin told Curtis that he wanted to hire him. Cassadine explained to Ashford that Nina’s mother lied about the miscarriage; Nina had given birth to a daughter and Valentin wanted Curtis to help him find her. Brad called Julian to find out what Jerome was doing to help them keep their child. Julian told Brad he (Julian) had a plan. Then, Julian looked at the photo he’d taken on his cell phone of the file from Diane’s office and called the birth mother and told her that even though she didn’t know him, they should meet.
At The Floating Rib, Carly (Laura Wright) and Jason (Steve Burton) shot pool. Lucy (Lynn Herring) found Kevin drinking at the bar at The Floating Rib and thought Kevin was down because Laura had forgotten to help him celebrate his birthday. Meanwhile in Ferncliff, Ryan (or is it really Kevin?) screamed for help. An orderly named Gordon opened the padded room door. Ryan told Gordon that a dangerous man was on the loose and Port Charles taking away everything he loved. Franco (Roger Hogwarth) assured Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) he could handle taking her boys shopping for clothes and school supplies. Robert (Tristan Rogers) met with Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) and updated her about the missing Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton). Meanwhile, Anna and Finn’s captives brought them to Cassandra (Jessica Tuck). At first, Finn refused to treat her but then told the men that Ms. Pierce’s virus had mutated and they all had to wear masks because Cassandra was contagious. Finn gave the men a list of medical supplies to get. At the park, Aiden announced that he wanted Princess Calinda of Everwood pencils for his school supplies to which Cameron (William Lipton) told him he couldn’t get because they were for girls.Cameron insisted that he was only trying to protect his little brother, but Franco followed after Aiden when the eight year old ran off. Jake (Hudson West) said that Cameron was in trouble now. Carly told Jason that Sonny (Maurice Benard) had filled her in on the body in the foundation of Julian’s (William deVry) bar and expressed concern that Julian could find out. Jason decided to wait and watch, but Carly reminded that if he waited to long, the bad situation could get worst. Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva) gloated to Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Elizabeth that he would appeal the sexual harassment verdict. He received a text to come to the Chief of Staff’s (Monica) office. Later, an angry Bensch returned to the nurse’s station and announced to Kiki and Elizabeth that he’d been fired. Chase (Josh Swickward) interrupted Jordan and Robert and expressed his worry about his missing brother (Finn). Kevin assured Lucy that his birthday was the last thing on his mind. Then, he thanked Jason was getting Carly out of Ferncliff and told her that because of her the medical and administrative staff had been replaced. Lucy returned with a peace offering: a birthday cupcake. Jordan made Chase the PCPD liaison to the WSB. Cassandra awoke and Anna told her about their captors. Ryan warned Gordon not to tell anyone about what he told him about his doctor’s true identity. Franco tried to make Aiden feel better by telling him how no one could tell another person what they could or couldn’t like. Cameron’s apology to his little brother was less than comforting. Franco told Cameron what he had done wasn’t cool, Cameron reminded at least he wasn’t apologizing for committing murder. Poor Aiden, because of his big brother he decided that he didn’t like the Princess Calinda of Everwood pencil anymore. Dr. Bensch vowed that he’d sue Kiki for defamation of character and get his job back even if he had to bring General Hospital to its knees. While Carly told Jason she trusted Kevin, he went to Ferncliff and presented Lucy’s birthday cupcake to his brother and told him to make a wish.
Mike (Max Gail) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) enjoyed watching a baseball game on television. Mike left the room. Sonny told Felix how as he never had moments like this with his dad as a child, he’s enjoying spending time with his father something he couldn’t do if he put Mike in a memory care facility. Sonny added Mike had everything he needed at the house and that he (Sonny) had given Mike a tracker with GPS. Mike returned with a catcher’s mitt and suggested he, Sonny and Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) toss around the ball. As Carly (Laura Wright) and Jason (Steve Burton) continued shooting pool, Drew (Billy Miller) and Margaux (Elizabeth Hendrickson) entered The Floating Rib. Carly showed Jason the photo of The Inquister’s front page where Drew and Margaux kissed. Jason told Carly he was sure Drew knew what he was doing. Margaux thought Drew’s questions about her past felt more like an interrogation. While Ava (Maura West) and Julian (William deVry) were in the park with Leo hunting for butterflies, they saw Griffin (Matt Cohen), who was out for a run. When Julian took Leo to another part of the park, Griffin confronted Ava about telling Monica about the unauthorized paternity test he ran on Peter (Wes Ramsey). Ava admitted not only did she tell Monica but she showed her the photo of the results she had taken on her phone. Jason warned Drew that D.A. Dawson was using him to get information on him (Jason) and Sonny. Carly accused Margaux of using her (Margaux) sexuality to get what she wanted. Ava told Griffin she showed Monica the test results because she wanted him to hurt like she did. Chase (Josh Swickward) got a lead via security footage from parking lot and a counter at a pharmacy in Canada where Finn’s prescription pad was used to pick up drugs. Meanwhile, Cassandra (Jessica Tuck) agreed to pretend she was still in a coma so she could get a peak at their captors while they weren’t looking to see whether she could identify them. When the men returned, Finn tricked them into drinking a drug compound (Finn and Anna drank water) that rendered them unconscious. Leo asked Griffin whether there were toys in Heaven for his cousin Jonah. Later, Griffin treated Leo when the boy fell out a tree hunting for butterflies. When Leo mentioned Julian putting a yellow blanket back in the drawer of Jonah’s nursery, Griffin asked Ava whether it was the blanket Nelle (Chloe Lanier) used to set up Carly. After Drew squirted barbeque sauce on Margaux’s blouse, they returned to her hotel room at The Metro Court for her to change tops. Drew found the flash drive. While escaping, Anna and Finn ran into Chase and Robert. But when they returned to the room to retrieve Cassandra, they found her gone. Meanwhile, a man wearing a Cassadine family crest ring had Cassandra in a car. Mike panicked when he found himself alone in Sonny’s living room. But pushing his alert button made a loud noise that frightened Mike. Soon, a guard, Sonny and the entering Jason all pointed their guns at Mike.
