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.
Franco/Drew (Roger Howarth) woke up in a hospital bed and found himself restrained. “How could you?” he asked Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) when she entered. He told her she had no right to keep him there. Scott (Kin Shriner) entered and told Franco/Drew that Elizabeth had every right. Franco/Drew realized Scott had no intention of representing him; his real client was Elizabeth. Scott told his son Elizabeth had legal guardianship over him and could make medical decisions. Before leaving, Scott said he hoped one day Franco would forgive them. Kim (Tamara Braun) was on the phone talking with someone about Franco when Julian (William deVry). He commented how she was all packed and ready to begin their new life together. Julian told Kim how he almost made a bad choice. But wanting to be the man she believed him to be and thinking of her beautiful face convinced him to make the right choice. Julian found the letter Kim wrote when she planned to leave town with Franco/Drew. When he learned Kim not only kissed Franco/Drew but “got busy” with him and planned to leave town with him, Julian realized that she never got over Drew so he’d never be good enough for her. Elizabeth told Franco how part of loving someone involves making hard decisions. She added that she knew the real Drew Cain who was a hero so Franco needs to be like him. At The Metro Court, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) showed Jax (Ingo Radmacher) the brochure for boarding school and told him her mom and Sonny (Maurice Benard) wanted to send her away. She asked whether she could move in with her dad. Jax said Josslyn could spend the night with him. But he didn’t think moving in with him was a good idea as he didn’t have a permanent residence. Later, Jax told Carly and Sonny that Josslyn believed they were sending her to boarding school. Also at The Metro Court were Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Finn (Michael Easton). Peter asked about Dr. Maddox restoring Franco’s memories. Chase (Josh Swickward) told Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) about Shiloh’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) escape. There was an APM out on Archer with the bus and train stations being checked. Jason found it doubtful Shiloh would take public transportation. Meanwhile dressed as a cop, Shiloh approached Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) while she was in her car. Once he removed his sunglasses, she recognized him. Bobbie pleaded with Shiloh to leave, promising she wouldn’t tell anyone. But seeing Wiley in the backseat, Shiloh took her car and Wiley. Dev (Ashton Arhad) stowaway aboard The Haunted Star since he couldn’t leave for Canada until the morning. When he saw Shiloh with Wiley, he called to speak with Jason but got Sam instead. He managed to tell her he was aboard The Haunted Star before Shiloh knocked him out. “Is it done?” Peter asked when he received a call from the burner phone of his hit man. But it was Shiloh calling. Archer told Peter he knew the plan to liberate him from prison was actually a plan to have him killed. But as he was a man of forgiveness, Shiloh demanded that Peter come to The Haunted Star with all the man August “could get his greedy little hands on.” And oh, he (Shiloh) had hostages, which now included Sam. Jason found Bobbie unconscious on the road and took her to GH. When she woke up, Bobbie told Jason and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) that Shiloh took her car and has Wiley. Jason worried when he couldn’t find Sam. Meanwhile, Shiloh revealed he had Wiley and told her she would help him take care of his son.
Peter (Wes Ramsey) entered his hotel room where he dumped a large sum of money out of a paper bag and put it in a duffle bag to give as a payoff to Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin). Maxie (Kristen Storms) asked Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) about Georgie’s next long break. She wanted her daughter to spend time with her, James and Peter, who Maxie wanted permanently in her life. Carly (Laura Wright) told Jax (Ingo Rademacher) the information for boarding schools were for Dev (Ashton Arhab). Sonny (Maurice Benard) said he would respect Josslyn’s (Eden McCoy) decision if she wanted to live with her father. When Josslyn told Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) how her mother and Sonny wanted to send her to boarding school, Krissy gave Joss the pros of attending boarding school. Jason (Steve Burton) went over the timeline of Shiloh taking her car with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman). At GH, Chase (Josh Swickward) told Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) that Shiloh escaped. Lucas (Ryan Carnes) gave them worst news by revealing to Chase, Willow and also Brad (Parry Shen) that Shiloh had Wiley. Brad said it was his fault because he set the whole thing in motion. Dev regained consciousness. Sam (Kelly Monaco) tried to convince Shiloh to let Dev and Wiley go and she’d get them to Canada. Saying she was right he had too many hostages, Shiloh let Dev take Wiley. He pulled out his gun and reminded Sam she said she’d get them to Canada. Jason called Spinelli and told him he and Sam had each other’s phones. Jason asked The Jackal to trace the location of where the last call came from his (Jason) phone. Spinelli told Jason a call came from Pier 55 so Morgan rushed there. Chase assured Willow that Wiley would be good. Josslyn realized her mistake in assuming the board school information was for her. Talking with her daughter alone, Carly told Josslyn she’d never sent her away. Jax and Sonny discussed their truce for the sake of Josslyn, who announced Dev wasn’t in his room. Maxie interrupted Peter as he was about to leave to meet Shiloh. She told him about Georgie’s October visit and suggested it was time he got a permanent place. After Peter left, Maxie found a withdraw slip from Peter’s account for $35,000 on the floor. Jason found Dev on Per 55 carrying Wiley. Peter hid and saw Dev telling Jason that Shiloh had Sam aboard The Haunted Star. Meanwhile, Shiloh reminded he knew how to operate autopilot from those years on his father’s yacht so he didn’t need her.
Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) told Cameron (William Lipton) she had Franco (Roger Howarth) committed in order to get him the procedure that will restore his memories of being Franco. But Cameron worried the procedure could cause Franco to lose all his memories, or worst, become a vegetable. Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) helped Franco drink his water. He asked her to remove his restraints but she said she couldn’t. Although Epiphany knew Drew Cain, she told Franco the only person cared about in all this mess was Elizabeth. Jax (Ingo Rademacher) questioned Sonny (Maurice Benard) about why he’s not notifying the police about Dev (Ashton Arhab) being missing. While Peter (Wes Ramsey) hid and listened, Jason (Steve Burton) told Dev to bring Wiley to the hospital…he was going to go get Sam (Kelly Monaco). Meanwhile aboard The Haunted Star, Sam told Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) he wouldn’t get away. Then, she taunted him about how his father rather have her have his money than his own son who he despised. Shiloh laughed that people like his father are always underestimating him…he wondered what his father’s thoughts were as he tumbled down that hill after Shiloh cut dear old dad’s brake line. Brad (Parry Shen) prayed in GH’s chapel for Wiley’s safe return. After she gave Aiden (Jason Frank) money for the vending machine, Cameron questioned Laura (Genie Francis) about being in a mental hospital. Aiden saw Franco in a hospital bed and came into his room and gave his stepfather Franco’s favorite candy bar. The little boy was sad Franco didn’t remember him and told him about all the fun times they spent together. Elizabeth discovered her son in Franco’s room and after Aiden left assured she would never use her children to get to him. Carly (Laura Wright) learn Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) was in the hospital and was a little angry with Jason for not telling her. Dev was a hero when he arrived at GH carrying Wiley. Willow hugged Wiley and thanked God for his safe return. Brad and Lucas were also relieved. When Dev came back to the Corinthos house with Josslyn, she called his rescue of Wiley iconic. And Sonny told Dev he was proud of him and he wasn’t leaving because he couldn’t get rid of them so easily. Laura questioned Peter about what he was doing on the pier to give Dev and Wiley a ride to GH. Before Shiloh could rape Sam, Jason appeared and shot Archer. But after Sam left the boat, Shiloh came behind Jason and got the upper hand. With Jason on the deck of the boat, Shiloh was determined to finish him off.
Alexis (Nancy Grahan) and Neil (Joe Flanighan) talked about dating. Sitting outside Kelly’s, Hayden (Rebecca Budig) asked Curtis (Donnell Turner) whether he had any luck finding the codicil to Mikos’ will. At Charlie’s, Julian (William deVry) told Ava (Maura West) he was going anywhere “Least of all with Kim. We’re done.” Julian told Ava that they broke up because of Kim’s (Tamara Braun) past and not his. Also at Charlie’s were Nina (Cynthia Watros) and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). Nina thought their wedding announcement drew Cassandra (Jessica Tuck) out of hiding and Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) paid the price. At GH, Sasha watched as Michael (Chad Duell) comforted Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) about what happened with Wiley. Peter (Wes Ramsey) told Laura (Genie Francis) it was just the right place, right time for him to be on Pier 55. Maxie approached them. After Laura left, Maxie also questioned Peter about what he was doing on the pier and why he withdrew $35,000. Thinking quickly, Peter was able to come up with a plausible lie: He wanted the money to be able to pay for an apartment down payment in cash. He’s been looking for apartments big enough for James and Georgie when she came to visit and had been doing this even before she suggested it. Hayden let it slip to Laura about the will codicil which would leave everything to Spencer. When Sasha and Michael arrived at Charlie’s, Julian learned how Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) kidnapped Wiley. Ava confronted Nina about the negative comments online from the Crimson cover. Then, Ms. Jerome came to Dr. Byrnes’ office for a therapy session. She asked Alexis to go see Julian. Shiloh came behind Jason and got the upper hand. With Jason on the deck of the boat, Shiloh was determined to finish him off. But Sam (Kelly Monaco) returned a fired a flash gun at Shiloh, who fell overboard and was no where to be seen in the water. Jason thanked Sam for saving his life. When they made it to the pier, Sam and Jason ran into Chase and Laura and told them what happened to Shiloh. Jason wanted to get Sam to GH to get the cut on her arm taken care then agreed to cooperate and answer the police’s questions. Ava told Neil about how Nikolas (followed by Morgan and then Kiki) was the first in losses for her. Chase came aboard The Haunted Star to investigate. Later at GH, the coroner brought a body in. With Chase, Sam, Jason, Maxie and Peter present, Willow identified it as David Henry Archer a.k.a Shiloh.
At the PCPD, Jordan (Briana Henry) entered the interrogation room. She thanked Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) for coming to give their statement. But they told her they had to wait for their attorney. Diane (Carol Hennesey) arrived with Dev (Ashton Arhab) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) and urged Corinthos to instruct Dev on how to answer questions. Jason gave is statement about finding Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) standing over Sam and firing his gun into Archer’s chest. Then, Sam gave her statement how she found Jason about to be clobbered by Shiloh with a gaffing staff, shooting him with the flare gun and he falling into the water. Diane commented how from both Mr. Morgan and Ms. McCall’s statements, this was a clear case of self defense. Jordan agreed. Sam and Jason overheard Diane’s phone conversation with Kim (Tamara Braun) where Dr. Nero told the attorney that Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) planned to have Franco (Roger Howarth) committed to Shadybrooke to have the medical procedure to restore his memories. Dev gave his statement and provided his account. When she asked what he was doing aboard The Haunted Star, Diane quickly answered for Dev that the teen was seeing to the renovations for Sonny. Olivia stormed over to The Haunted Star when she learned Julian (William deVry) was trying to back out of selling the bar. Then, she overheard Lulu (Emme Rylan) telling Laura (Genie Francis) that she (Lulu) slept with Dustin. The high school teacher took his student out to the park for class. When Josslyn walked away upset, he followed her to Oscar’s Meadow where he encouraged her to keep a journal to write down her feelings. Franco reminded Elizabeth that one of the options for having the memory restoring procedure would leave him a vegetable and told her no court would allow that. The nurse who bandaged Sam’s arm remembered overhearing Sam vowing she’d done anything to protect Jason from Shiloh. Sam encouraged Elizabeth not to let Franco have the procedure because of the risk. While she was in the kitchen with Jason, Carly (Laura Wright) went into labor 2 weeks early and he took her to GH. The nurse came to the PCPD and told Commissioner Ashford she needed to speak with her. Later, Jordan called Sam back to the station for more questions. Sonny arrived at GH and Jason got up so he could take his place by his wife’s bedside.
