Jason (Steve Burton) woke up in General Hospital to find Carly (Laura Wright) sitting by is bed. Sam (Kelly Monaco) thanked Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) for helping her get Danny and Scout’s fathers to the hospital. She covered when Shiloh questioned her about how Jason knew where they were. Finn (Michael Easton) told Drew (Billy Miller) he contracted a virus that caused his blindness. Drew asked whether he hit anyone. He learned he hit Jordan with his car. Meanwhile, Curtis (Donnell Turner) sat by Jordan’s bedside and asked his Aunt Stella (Vernee Watson) whether she’d heard anything about his wife’s injuries. Stella told her nephew that Jordan’s injuries were being monitored because she sustained broken ribs and damage to her kidneys. At The Metro Court, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) checked her phone as she awaited lab results on Sasha’s (Sofia Mattsson) DNA test. Anna (Finola Hughes) came to see Jason and told he and Carly about the virus that caused the retinal blindness. She explained that Dr. Cabot was the original developer of the serum and Andre obtained the information through Cabot’s notes. Anna told them how she and her twin Alex (also Hughes) were the first test subjects. Anna assured Jason she wasn’t given any of Alex’s memories. While Nina (Michelle Stafford) tried to get Sasha to stay in Port Charles until the wedding, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) asked Peter as his oldest friend and someone who knew how much Nina meant to him to be his best man and August accepted. Drew apologized to Curtis for accidentally hitting Jordan with his car. Valentin told Nina he asked Peter to be his best man. Peter explained to Maxie that serving as Valentin’s best man will enable him to keep an eye on him. Carly told Jason she’s pregnant and Jason later told Sam. When the DNA confirmed Sasha wasn’t a match but indicated Subject B as an African American woman. Stella sat by Jordan’s bed and offered apologies on how she’d (Stella) treated her in the past. After Carly left his hospital room, Sam told Jason how relieved she was he was okay. Then, she kissed him. The kiss was witnessed by Shiloh, who stood hovering outside Jason’s hospital room.
Lulu (Emme Rylan) learned from Chase (Josh Swickward) the police didn’t know about any meeting or where Laura (Genie Francis) was; she asked detective to keep her posted. Lulu and Peter (Wes Ramsey) were at Ferncliff as Ms. Falconieri was the reporter that was interviewing Franco (Roger Hogwarth). Peter reminded Lulu she didn’t have to be the person conducting the interview, but Lulu wanted to find out from Franco why he killed those people. Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) played Chase’s voicemail to Laura and smirked. “Happy hunting detective,” he said as he went to meet Ava (Maura West) at Charlie’s Pub. He apologized for keeping her waiting, but Ava assured she has been waiting for a man like him all her life. Seeing Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) watching she and Jason (Steve Burton) kissing, Sam slapped Jason and accused him of not taking a hint they were broken up. Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) entered and asked whether everything was okay. Sam left to talk with her sister alone and told Kristina that Jason refused to understand they’re over. Alexis (Nancy Grahan) had another session with Dr. Neil Burns. Elaborating what was discussed in their previous session about her attraction to dangerous men, Neil asked Alexis whether she herself was dangerous. Alexis explained about her past crimes and how she got away with running down Kristina’s boyfriend with her car and faking being crazy in order to avoid going to prison for murder. Dr. Burns reasons that perhaps Alexis is dangerous. Jordan is taken into surgery and afterwards the surgeon told T.J., Molly (Haley Puollos) and Curtis (Donnell Turner) as Jordan’s blood pressure spiked, they had to remove her kidney. Chase interrupted Ava and Ryan. While Chase asked “Kevin” whether he heard from Laura, Ava defended her decision to marry “Kevin” to Julian (William deVry). Ryan used Laura’s phone to send a text to Detective Chase. Franco’s interview with Lulu was streamed live. As Ava, Ryan and Julian watched, Franco told Lulu how he killed for art and it was nothing personal. Ryan seethed as he listened to Franco call Ryan Chamberlain nothing and a poser. Ryan told Ava he had to go. Shiloh warned Jason that Sam had the protection of the house now that she was part of the Dawn of Day family. Kristina thought Jason was always holding Sam back and now that she (Sam) was ready to move on, Jason again wanted to stand in her way. Ava blamed herself for bringing Franco into Kiki’s life. Lulu told Peter there’s something about the interview and Franco’s confession that felt off. Before she, Sam and Shiloh left General Hospital, Kristina told Jason that Sam was better off without him. Chase asked Curtis about message Jordan left about having a special assignment for Chase. Ava told Julian as she had been wrong about Franco and everyone else in her life, “Kevin” was the only thing that made it bearable. Franco urged the killer to come after him as Ryan entered.
An encore episode aired. Per General Hospital’s Official Twitter : “Unfortunately, due to breaking news – today’s episode of
#GH will not air as scheduled. Because we want to make sure no one misses a second of the action, all-new episodes will return tomorrow. Expect an encore in markets where the live-coverage won’t affect our time slot.”
At The Invader, Lulu (Emme Rylan) was reluctant to go into her office. Maxie (Kirsten Storms) told her friend she didn’t have to go back into the office. But as she felt she was missing a crucial piece, Lulu told Maxie she had to go in. At Charlie’s Pub, Ava (Maura West) read a transcript of Franco’s (Roger Hogwarth) interview to try to make sense of it. Scott (Kin Shriner) assured Ava he didn’t know why Franco admitted to murder. Baldwin refused to believe his son was a killer because that meant he lost everyone…Lee, Gail and now Franco. Cameron (Will Lipton) read the transcript of the interview and announced to Oscar (Garren Stitt) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) he was right all along about Franco. Drew (Billy Miller) came to see Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and they discussed Franco’s interview. Meanwhile at Ferncliff, Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) demanded Franco tell the truth about the murders. Franco said the truth was he (Franco) was the killer and “Kevin” just couldn’t accept that he failed as a psychiatrist and was wrong about him. Ryan became agitated and insisted that Franco unveil himself to him in order to feel better, promising what Franco told him would stay confidential. Franco then admitted he was working on a plan with Jordan (Briana Henry) to catch the real killer by getting him jealous over the fact that he (Franco) is taking the credit for the murders. Ryan told Franco about Jordan’s accident and Franco blamed “Kevin” for botching Lulu’s hypnosis and told him he’d have to fix it. Lulu remembered the conversation of about Ryan Chamberlain’s nine murder victims but couldn’t remember who she was talking with. Ms. Falconieri recalled the two women’s names and an internet search found information on the stabbing and unsolved murder of one of the victims. Elizabeth and Drew read the transcript of Franco’s interview and wondered why he said he tried to kill Drew when they were children since that was an obvious lie. The question was why did Franco lie? Meanwhile, Ryan stabbed Franco and got him to realize “Kevin” was really Ryan Chamberlain and he was the killer. When Nurse Kay entered the room, Ryan lied that Franco tried to attack him and he defended himself. Franco got the upper hand and locked Ryan in the room. When she returned, Ryan told Nurse to get help. Josslyn told Oscar, Cameron and Trina about an adventure fund Jax set up for her she wanted to use for their trip to Niagara Falls. Franco used the burner phone to leave a voice mail for Jordan saying the real killer fell for the plan and is Ryan Chamberlain.
Jason (Steve Burton) had to show Carly (Laura Wright) his hospital release papers to assure her the doctor signed off on him leaving. He told her how he and Sam (Kelly Monaco) had to stage a fight after she left his hospital room because Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) saw them together. Nina (Michelle Stafford) came to the hospital to offer Curtis (Donnell Turner) her support. Finn (Michael Easton) appeared and told Nina and Curtis that Jordan needed a kidney transplant. At The Metro Court, Robert (Tristan Rogers) confronted Peter (Wes Ramsey) about not holding up his end of the bargain with the WSB in exchange for his freedom. Scorpio questioned August about holding back with information on Patients 1 through 5. Anna (Finola Hughes) announced she was Patient 1. Peter insisted he only knew Drew (Billy Miller) and Jason were Patients 5 and 6 and had no idea about the others. But August thought Dr. Andre Maddox would be the best place Anna could look for answers. Mac (John J. York) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner) arrived at Lulu’s (Emme Rylan) office. Ms. Falconieri questioned Felicia about Ryan’s other two murder victims Debra Jones and Suzanne Smith that was on a list Laura (Genie Francis) saw in Kevin’s office. If the names of these other victims weren’t public knowledge, Mac wondered how Kevin knew. Ryan was treated at General Hospital for an injury he sustained to his hand, which he said he got from attempting to stop Franco from escaping. Meanwhile, Franco appeared at Elizabeth’s door and fell to the floor from blood loss due to his stab wound. Liz rushed to get towels to stop the bleeding and called 911. Although weak, Franco muttered he lied about committing the murders and said Ryan Chamberlain was the killer. Meanwhile, Ryan told asked Ava to run away with him to Canada and get married in Niagara Falls. Ava accepted and Ryan asked her to go home, grab her passport and pack and a bag of warm weather clothes for the tropical honeymoon he’d plan to take her on. She said she’d meet him back at the hospital. But Ava being Ava couldn’t help gloating to Carly about her upcoming nuptials, adding that her nemesis wasn’t invited. Anna (Finola Hughes) shared with Finn her conversation with Peter and then asked Jason questions to determine whether Dr. Klein was alive and how to find him. Robert vowed to bring Peter down when he reverted back to the bad guy he was hiding under the good guy facade. Mac and Felicia arrived at GH to talk with “Kevin” and Carly told him he was marrying Ava tonight. Nina gave Curtis the burner phone from his wife’s coat pocket, it had an urgent message for Jordan (Briana Henry). Chase arrived at Elizabeth’s with the police and paramedics and she told him Franco said he didn’t kill anyone; Ryan Chamberlain did. Chase wondered how a dead man could be a murderer. In the General Hospital parking lot, Ryan looked at his driver’s license souvenirs when Carly appeared behind him.
