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.
Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) made love in one of the staterooms aboard The Haunted Star. She was shocked when Laura (Genie Francis) and Curtis (Donnell Turner) opened the door. Lulu was so embarrassed and got dressed to find her mother to explain. Meanwhile, Curtis told Laura they had to come up with a reason for being on the closed for renovation The Haunted Star. When Lulu appeared, Laura assured her daughter with her divorce being final, it was okay for her to move on with her life. Curtis told Lulu that Laura was helping him with a case involving something being hidden aboard The Haunted House; he couldn’t ask Lulu because she’s a member of the press. Franco/Drew (Roger Howath) came to Kim’s (Tamara Braun) apartment to see how she was doing with losing another person she loved. Kim said Drew was a survivor so she was certain he’d be found safe. Chase (Josh Swickward) arrived to remove Franco’s ankle monitor as the judge dropped the charges. Before leaving, Chase told Kim both Drew Cain and Franco Baldwin deserved justice. Nina (Cynthia Watros) told Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) about Lucy (Lynn Herring) wanting Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) to be the Face of Deception. Liesl (Kathleen Gati) taunted Valentin by asking how he felt about Sasha becoming a public figure who’s life would be under scrutiny. Sasha told Michael (Chad Duell) she wasn’t Nina’s daughter and how she was provided with a DNA sample to give to PI Curtis so it would turn out she was Nina’s daughter. Sasha explained how her grandmother was ill and Medicare wasn’t enough to pay the medical bills so she did it for the money. She told him how Valentin found her and hired her to give Nina her heart’s deserve. But Sasha told Michael she couldn’t lie anymore. When Nina and Valentin entered, Nina noticed Sasha was upset and Michael said he and Sasha were done before leaving the room. Liesl approached Brad and warned he’d suffer the consequences unless he helped reunite her with her daughter Britt. Julian (William deVry) saw Brad talking with Liesl and asked what Obretch wanted. Later, Brad kept Liesl busy while Julian did something to her car. Kim told Franco he was her friend’s husband so she couldn’t go away with him. But she couldn’t say goodbye to him again. They shared another passionate kiss.
Curtis (Donnell Turner) found a woman’s scarf in a drawer in one of the stateroom. When he heard a noise, he opened a closet door and out came a gun toting Cassandra (Jessica Tuck). She told Curtis she knew who he was and that he was looking for a certain document that could bring down Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart). Curtis suggested they join forces since she wanted the same thing. But Cassandra asked them to tie each other up. Nina (Cynthia Watros) helped Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) to her room at The Metro Court. After Nina left the room, Valentin asked Sasha what was going on earlier between she and Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell). Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) had her second interview for pediatric teacher. She noticed Michael seemed down. He told her once again he saw something that wasn’t there in someone. Willow reminded that sometimes people lie and keep secrets for the right reasons. With Finn (Michael Easton) present, Andre reminded Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) of the possible ramifications of performing the memory procedure on Franco (Roger Howarth). Telling Dr. Maddox how Franco’s last words to Cameron (William Lipton) was he would find a way back to them, Liz decided to chance the procedure to bring Franco back. Meanwhile, Kim (Tamara Braun) and Franco/Drew were in a passionate liplock and ended up making love. Julian (William deVry) told Brad (Parry Shen) he checked around for security cameras in the parking garage then began work on Liesl’s (Kathleen Gati) car. But he decided he didn’t want to do that Kim so he set things back right. Valentin said he hoped Sasha didn’t tell Michael the truth as she knew how much that would hurt Nina. Michael arrived at Sasha’s hotel room. After Nina and Valentin left, Michael apologized to Sasha, saying he realized she wasn’t a liar like Nelle (Chloe Lanier). She took a job for the right reasons…giving Nina the daughter she so desperately wanted. Nina asked her Aunt Liesl to give her away at Nina and Valentin’s wedding. Curtis got the upper hand on Cassandra. After she was taken to the PCPD, Cassandra told Laura she could give her Valentin. Franco/Drew reminded Kim how they loved each other long before she met Julian. He asked her to come away with him again as Elizabeth arrived at Kim’s apartment door.
Kim (Tamara Braun) held her apartment door opened for Franco/Drew (Roger Howarth) to leave. Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) arrived at the door just in time to overhear Franco asking Kim to leave town with her. Elizabeth entered, saying Detective Chase (Josh Swickward) told her “Drew” got his ankle monitor off. Franco/Drew apologized for the pain Liz was in reminding he wasn’t the man she loved so it would be better if he left town. He told Kim he’d be waiting for her on Pier 55 at 10:00PM. “We need to talk,” Elizabeth told Kim after Franco left. Maxie (Kristen Storms) came to The Metro Court as Lulu (Emme Rylan) ended her call with Dustin (Mark Lawson). Ms. Jones wanted to hear all about “Hot Dustin.” Lulu told her friend she and Dustin kissed and had sex. Jason (Steve Burton) showed Sonny (Maurice Benard) the police sketch of the man who attacked Dr. Maddox. Meanwhile, Peter (Wes Ramsey) met with that same man on the pier and paid him for the job on Andre. Because he didn’t complete the job but due to his track record, Peter gave the man seventy percent. Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) called Jason and put Peter on Morgan’s radar by mentioning the article The Invader was doing on him (Shiloh). Seeing the pillows and blankets tossed in disarray on the floor, Elizabeth realized Kim slept with Franco and slapped Dr. Nero. Liz called Kim delusional if she believed Franco was Drew, while Kim told Elizabeth she couldn’t get Franco back anymore than Kim could get Oscar back. At Kelly’s, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) asked Cameron (William Lipton) how he was doing. Cameron said he was worried about his mom with Franco being gone and how much Franco completed their family. As no one came out to take their order, Josslyn went inside where English teacher Mr. Phillips told her he was just reading her essay. He said she would get an ‘A’ for the well written piece but it left him wanting more. Dustin said he felt Josslyn was holding back and was looking forward to seeing her work the rest of the semester. Peter went to Pentonville to visit Shiloh. When August’s phone rang and he saw it was Jason Morgan, Shiloh said he planted a seed in Jason’s head because he sensed Peter stalling. Peter assured he’ll put an escape plan in place for Shiloh, who warned of the consequences what would happen if Peter didn’t get him out. Since Peter didn’t answer the phone, Jason and Sonny came over to Maxie and asked her about the article on Shiloh The Invader was doing. Elizabeth reminded Kim how she was hurting Julian (William deVry). After Liz left, Kim called Julian but had to leave a voicemail. Then, she wrote a note to “Charlie.” Franco/Drew ran into Cameron at Kelly’s. Before he left town, the teen wanted to tell “Drew” about the kind of man Franco was. Peter met with Andre’s attacker again promising him the thirty percent he owed him and a bonus to get rid of David Henry Archer. Kim met Franco/Drew on Pier 55. Before they could leave for the airport, two men grabbed him to commit him to a 48 hour hold. Kim realized Elizabeth was responsible.
Michael asked Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) how she slept. Sasha appeared worried and commented her phone notifications were blowing up. Nina (Cynthia Watros) told Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) with Cassandra (Jessica Tuck) now in custody it wouldn’t be long before she joined her. Nina worried whether Alexis (Nancy Grahan) would represent her or if she should just stick with Diane (Carolyn Hennessey). Jason (Steve Burton) and Maxie (Kristen Storms) were having coffee at Kelly’s when Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) entered. Maxie commented how Sam (Kelly Monaco) must be looking forward to helping to send Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) to prison. After Maxie left for Crimson, Jason told Spinelli how Shiloh called him (Jason) and made a point to throw Peter August’s (Wes Ramsey) name. Meanwhile, Peter met with Andre’s attacker. The man pulled out his gun and assured after today Peter’s old friend Shiloh will be no more than a distant memory. In the courtroom, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) practiced how it felt being on the witness stand. When Shiloh was brought in, he taunted Willow how he was confident he would be acquitted and they (he and Willow) would be together. At The Metro Court, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) practiced her testimony. Alexis (Nancy Grahan) told her daughter that she (Alexis) was dating Neil (Joe Flanigan). At the PCPD interrogation room, Cassandra (Jessica Tuck) was cleaning the table with disinfectant. She demanded of Jordan (Briana Henry) to see her consulate. “Will I do?” Sonny (Maurice Benard) asked as he entered the interrogation room. Once they were alone, Sonny threatened Cassandra for putting Michael (Chad Duell) in danger when Cassandra drugged Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson). Sasha worried Nina would have her arrested when they learned the truth. Michael assured her everything would be okay. He told her all about the mistakes Maxie made and how Ms. Jones was able to climb out from under her past. Valentin came to see Cassandra at the PCPD. She reminded how she called him last night. But Valentin taunted she had no leverage as no one would take her word against Nina that Nina tried to kill her. Jordan (Briana Henry) told Laura (Genie Francis) that Cassandra was worse than Valentin and that the mayor’s connection to Cassadine was clouding her judgment. Alexis arrived to represent Cassandra, who insisted Ms. Davis stall the WSB’s plans to expedite Cassandra. An ADA would be asking the questions during Shiloh’s trial. Robert (Tristan Rogers) wondered why Peter was in the courtroom. Willow, Harmony, Kristina and Sam all testified to Shiloh’s misdeeds of extorting money, drugging and sexual assault. After the prosecution rested its case, the defense called their first witness: David Henry Archer.
Sonny (Maurice Benard) was talking with Carly (Laura Wright) on his cellphone, telling her he left trial because he couldn’t stand looking at Shiloh’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) face anymore. Carly was looking into private schools for Dev (Ashton Arhab). Dev and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) were at Kelly’s working on The Scarlet Letter essays. Dev was distracted remembering overhearing Carly telling Sonny that he (Dev) should go away. Sonny approached them as he was going to Kelly’s to pick up food for Carly. Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) came to visit her daughter and asked Carly about her birth plan in place. Bobbie was surprised Carly had a C-Section scheduled. Bobbie commented they’d know if something was wrong with the baby. Carly said there was something Bobbie didn’t know about the baby. But when Sonny returned home, Carly decided not to tell her mother about the baby having spinal bifada. Instead, she said she and Sonny knew the sex of their baby but decided to keep it a secret until after their child’s birth. After Bobbie left to pick up Wiley from the babysitter, Carly talked with Sonny about a boarding school for Dev. Sonny suggested that perhaps Josslyn should go live with Jax. Carly reminded Sonny how’d Avery (Ava and Scarlett Scarola) would feel if she woke up and Josslyn wasn’t there, commenting she hoped Sonny wasn’t choosing Dev over Josslyn. Sonny assured that wasn’t the case. Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Maxie (Kristen Storms) were having lunch in the Crimson office when Peter (Wes Ramsey) arrived. Lulu was tired of doing lifestyle pieces and wanted to write about crime again. Peter said he’d talk with her editor if she promised not to go after criminals and just write about them. Lulu learned Maxie was considering starting her own magazine one day. Josslyn found the brochures for the boarding school. Dev searched online for the quickest way to get from Port Charles to Canada. Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) took the stand and testified that he was the founder of Dawn of Day, which wasn’t a cult. He explained how he helped Kristina Davis (Lexi Ainsworth) through a difficult time with her family and saw her blossom into a confident young woman who helped with DOD’s community outreach. Shiloh further testified how Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) came to him under false pretenses and was working with her the father of her son, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) a man who tried to kill him. When the DA questioned Archer, she asked Shiloh about The Trust and the drugging of multiple young women in order to have sex with them. Court was adjourned for the day. A second police officer told the first one that the warden had requested a two man transport to take Shiloh back to Pentonville. Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) arrived at Crimson and caught Peter finishing up his call. After August left, The Jackal asked for a trace of a call that came from the tower of the building to find out who Peter had contacted. Robert (Tristan Rogers) warned Jason if something happened to Shiloh, Morgan would be the first place they’d look, Chase (Josh Swickward) told Sam and Jason that Shiloh was gone. Meanwhile dressed as a cop, Shiloh approached Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) while she was in her car.
