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.
Laura (Genie Francis) thanked Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) for the bouquet of tulips he sent even though he couldn’t sign the card because of the plan. Speaking of the plan, Kevin had to hang up because it was show time at The Metro Court when Ava (Maura West) arrived. Lucy (Lynn Herring) and Scott (Kin Shriner) were discussing The Nurse’s Ball. Spotting Ava and Kevin together, Lucy came over to their table. With Scott standing next to her, Lucy suggested Ava go to the ball with Baldwin, but Kevin said Ava were going with him. Robert (Tristan Rogers) ran into Laura outside of Kelly’s and asked her to go to The Nurse’s Ball with him. Laura declined and Robert reasoned she wasn’t ready to move on from Kevin. Scott pulled Ava aside and asked what she was up to with Kevin. Curtis (Donnell Turner) asked Jordan (Briana Henry) whether she was keeping anything from him about her medical condition. Anna (Finola Hughes) told Finn (Michael Easton) she was ready to move on with her life. Finn thought about when he practiced proposing to her with the skeleton. Maxie (Kristen Storms) told Lulu (Emme Rylan) about her (Maxie) non-date with Peter (Wes Ramsey). Anna ran into her son. Peter told her being Faison (Anders Hove) was making him pulled back from Maxie. He talked about how Faison raised him and his fear of hurting Maxie. Anna assured he wasn’t giving Maxie enough credit. Finn told Curtis and Jordan her kidney was failing and she needed a donor immediately. But he was optimistic someone in Port Charles could be a match. Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) told Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) how she escaped from Dawn of Day and the story of meeting Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) when she was eighteen. She and her mother lived at different communes until they discovered DOD. Her mother was good at outreach and soon became Shiloh’s right hand. Her mother joined The Trust. Then, Shiloh wanted her. She recorded her pledge and was initiated. Willow showed Kristina her DOD tattoo, explained about being drugged and had later had sex with Shiloh. After Willow left, Dr. Burns told Kristina she reached a crossroad in her treatment and had to make a decision based on the information she was given. Kevin received a text from Dr. Finn asking him to meet in Jordan’s hospital room. Finn entered and announced Kevin had the genetic to be Jordan’s kidney donor. Robert said Anna had to consider Peter may be Alex’s (also Hughes) son. Maxie met Peter at The Metro Court and whisked her off for their date. Dr. Neil Burns left the door to the safe house opened and told Kristina it was her decision to return to Shiloh or stay with her family.
Jax (Ingo Rademacher) enters the Corinthos house. Carly (Laura Wright) was surprised to see him. She told him how happy Josslyn (Eden McCoy) will be to see him and how much she needs him. Anna (Finola Hughes) told Finn (Michael Easton) she realized Peter (Wes Ramsey) wasn’t her son. Maxie (Kristen Storms) and Peter were aboard a plane. Peter told her they were going to Paris. Dr. Neil Burns left the door to the safe house opened and told Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) it was her decision to return to Shiloh or stay with her family. Chase (Josh Swickward) entered and told Kristina she was a hard woman to find. He said how worried Valerie was about her after receiving Kristina’s phone call. Krissy didn’t admitted her family had taken her against her will but instead said she had some things to work about with them. Neil introduced himself as the doctor helping the Corinthos family. After Chase left, Kristina assured Alexis she was returning home. Jax thanked Jason (Steve Burton) for looking after Carly and Josslyn. Jason received a text from Sonny telling him Kristina was okay so he could get Sam (Kelly Monaco). Meanwhile, Sam came to DOD and gave her recorded pledge to Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin). Since she’d already paid the fee, Archer told Sam her initiation could take place right now without anyone present but him. In the DOD attic, Sam said she didn’t need anything to drink to calm her as she was already calm and wanted to be alert to fully experience everything about the initiation. Anna didn’t want to tell Peter that she wasn’t his mother. Finn commented there wasn’t proof yet that Alex was Peter’s mother. Chase ran into Michael (Chad Duell) and told him what happened with Kristina. After the detective left, Willow told Michael she would have risked anything to tell Kristina the truth about Shiloh. Meanwhile, Jason arrived at the DOD house to retrieve Sam and found the door locked, which was unusual as the door was always kept unlocked at the DOD house. He kicked down the door and made his way upstairs.
Carly (Laura Wright) thanked Jax (Ingo Rademacher) in advance for his attempt in getting along with Sonny (Maurice Benard). Jax said his feelings for Josslyn (Eden McCoy) was the most important thing. Joss came downstairs. The teen was surprised to see her dad and ran into Jax’s arms. At the Quartermaine mansion, Drew (Billy Miller) was sleeping on the couch and was startled when Kim (Tamara Braun) woke him. She asked whether he’d like something of Oscar’s (Garren Stitt). Drew looked through the box and commented on the handmade ashtray and the telescope. Kim told him that before the telescope was Oscar’s, it was hers and before it was hers, it was his. Neil, Alexis and Sonny bring Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) home to Alexis’ house. Kristina asked about Sam (Kelly Monaco), commenting that Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) was even more interested than Sam than her. Sonny assured they were looking out for Sam. Jason arrived at the DOD house to retrieve Sam and found the door locked, which was unusual as the door was always kept unlocked at the DOD house. He kicked down the door and made his way upstairs. He knocked Shiloh out with his gun before Archer could finish tattooing Sam. But Sam refused to leave with him until Jason got Kristina’s pledge. Brad (Parry Shen) refused to hear anything against Shiloh and DOD. Valerie (Paulina Bugembe) came into Kelly’s Diner and told Chase (Josh Swickward) and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) her cousin Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) husband was involved with Dawn of Day. Detective Spencer realized that they had to get legal evidence against Shiloh soon and now they had a witness to what goes on inside DOD. Willow warned Brad and Lucas against DOD, Lucas ordered her to stay away from their son reminding it was none of his business. When Shiloh woke, Sam lied that he was knocked out by some disgruntled man who came in and she threw a vase at him and chased him away. Josslyn told her dad about Oscar and Jax talked about before his mother passed. Then, he sang Joss a lullaby that Lady Jane (Jax’s mother) used to sing to him. Curtis came to see Drew, who offered to pay for Jordan’s (Briana Henry) kidney transplant (once it’s verified the donor is a match). Curtis thanked Drew. Valerie came over to Alexis’ and Kristina asked her hypothetically what she should do if someone had something of hers but refused to give it back and threatened to use if against her. Valerie reminded that was blackmail and urged Kristina to report it. Sonny returned home and he and Jax exchanged small talk. When Corinthos learned that Jax planned to buy Kate ‘s old house, Sonny decided he would buy it first so Jax couldn’t be his neighbor. Jason arrived and told Sonny that Shiloh moved the pledges and replaced them with blank paper before he (Jason) could get Kristina’s. Chase questioned Willow about why she never sought out to protect the children at DOD from Shiloh’s influence. Chase said he could be wrong but Willow’s special interest in Wiley but doesn’t think so. Willow said that Chase was right in what he was thinking and confirmed that Wiley was her son.
At the Quartermaine mansion, Sam (Kelly Monaco) assured Jason (Steve Burton) that Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) didn’t know Jason was the one who broke in. Jason told Sam about how Shiloh switched the pledges with blank pieces of paper but said she (Sam) was out of it. Jason reasoned that even if they couldn’t get Kristina’s pledge back there was no way Sonny would ever be convicted of a crime without evidence. Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) asked Alexis (Nancy Grahan) how much freedom she’d have living there. Alexis assured her daughter she was a prisoner and she trusted her to make the right decision. But urged her to stay away from Shiloh. At Charlie’s Pub, Kim (Tamara Braun) thanked Julian (William deVry) for the way he’s taken care of since Oscar’s (Garren Stitt) passing. Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) told Chase (Josh Swickward) her fear Shiloh would find out about Wiley. Meanwhile at the DOD house, Shiloh performed a relaxation exercise on Brad (Parry Shen) who told him Wiley’s birth mother has been giving him trouble. Shiloh suggested Brad bring Wiley’s birth mother to DOD. Kim arrived and Brad left. She thanked Shiloh for forwarding the emails and letters from the DOD members. Kim then asked about Oscar’s time in the house. Shiloh shared a memory of how a full course meal at DOD turned into a potluck dinner due to Oscar’s concern the homeless didn’t eat as well. Shiloh then talked about Drew (Billy Miller) sharing stories of the beautiful woman he knew in San Diego and asked whether Drew had sent him anything. Did Drew have something evidence against Shiloh that Archer was worried he had given to Kim? Robert (Tristan Rogers) suggested to Anna (Finola Hughes) that he’d help her prove “Henrik” was Alex’s (also Hughes) son. He contacted Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner) at the WSB and Frisco gave him information on Alex’s former husband All My Children’s Dimtri Marick (Michael Nader). After Anna and Robert were gone, Finn (Michael Easton) left a voicemail for Scorpio demanding his engagement ring from Anna back. Mike (Max Gail) forgot Michael’s (Chad Duell) son died and asked Sonny (Maurice Benard) to promise to remember Courtney for him when Corbin forgets his daughter. Chase suggested that Willow contact her lawyer to find out her legal rights if Shiloh discovered Wiley was his son and attempted to sue for custody. Willow left a voicemail message for Diane (Carolyn Hennesey). Lucas questioned Julian about whether he knew what was bothering Brad. While Sonny talked with Robert Scorpio about Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) outside of Kelly’s, Mike found Finn’s engagement ring for Anna that Robert had left on the counter. Knowing that Kristina would feel guilty about betraying someone she loved if they didn’t get her pledge back, Sam told Jason her plan to allow Shiloh to drug and attempt to have sex with her and to get it on tape as evidence. Shiloh was surprised when Kristina returned to DOD. Kristina asked Shiloh for her pledge back.
TJ is excited when he came to his mother’s hospital room and overhead Finn (Michael Easton) talking with Jordan (Briana Henry) about the kidney donor. After Finn left the room, TJ questioned his mother about Curtis going to look for Ryan. In Toronto, Laura (Genie Francis) and Curtis (Donnell Turner) canvassed a neighborhood in search of Ryan’s (Jon Lindstrom) female accomplice. At Charlie’s Pub, Ava (Maura West) commented Kevin’s (also Lindstrom) attitude could be considered a lover’s spat. Ava learned Kevin was waiting to hear whether he could donate a kidney to Commissioner Ashford. Sonny (Maurice Bernard) came to Alexis’ house and asked how she knew Kristina was going to Charlie’s to ask for her job back and not to see Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin). When Dr. Burns arrived, Neil assured Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) got through to Kristina. Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) came to Dawn of Day and said as she decided not to be a member of DOD. Krissy asked for her pledge back, accusing him of drugging her to rape her. Shiloh wanted to know who put the idea in her head. “David Henry Shiloh Archer” Kristina answered. Shiloh told Kristina that he hoped she’ll come back to DOD and told her she always had a place in the Dawn of Day family. Ava took a selfie of she and Kevin kissing to post on his social media accounts. Finn delivered the disappointing news Dr. Collins couldn’t donate his kidney to Ava, Kevin, TJ and Jordan. Kevin was disappointed he couldn’t be Jordan’s kidney donor. Ava reminded that he couldn’t make up for the lives his brother took by donating a kidney even though his intentions were good. Then, Ava attempted to kiss him and a startled Kevin pulled back. Dr. Finn asked Jordan whether she had any other family members like siblings who could be tested to see if they were possible donors. Jordan said she hadn’t stayed in touch with her other family members. Finn suggested she considered giving a DNA sample to see whether a match could be discovered through the National Registry. Kristina returned home and admitted to her parents and Dr. Burns she went to DOD and Shiloh said some things she didn’t want to hear. Ava apologized to Kevin, explaining she fell in love with a man she thought was him who loved and accepted her for who she was. He reminded he loved his wife Laura and that he was only pretending they were involved to lure Ryan out in the open but the next time she forgot it was all an act, he would shut it down. In Toronto as they were snowed in on their way to Paris, Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) hopes for a romantic evening with Maxie (Kristen Storms) were dashed when she brought back Laura and Curtis. Neil told Alexis and Sonny it was a win Kristina confronting Shiloh. Meanwhile, Shiloh told someone on the phone Kristina’s pledge was safe until he needed it.
