Lots to see and do this week in Port Charles with the focus on the impending Silas Clay murder trial and the mob wars. Here’s a stack of “General Hospital” spoilers to get you ready for the rest of the week from August 18 through August 21.
Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig) isn’t faking amnesia – what? But she is getting her memories back once she’s snug at Castle Wyndemere again. She tells Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) that her brain is healing and Nik fills in Liz Webber (Rebecca Herbst) who freaks out and has a hissy fit. Now that Liz is about to get Jake Doe (Billy Miller) down the aisle, she doesn’t want anything in her way.
Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes) hears out Brad Cooper (Parry Shen) about why he had to marry Rosalie Martinez (Linda Elena Tovar) and once Brad explains it all, Lucas thinks he can get on board. Lucas admits he understands why Brad took on the arranged marriage and while it’s not the happily ever after he pictured, Lucas still wants to be with Brad so they’ll reconcile tentatively.
Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) make overtures of friendship to Valerie Spencer (Brytni Sarpi) but is Maxie for real or just trying to keep a close eye on Valerie after she freaked out when she thought Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) was shot? Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) and Dillon Quartermaine (Robert Palmer Watkins) get closer working on the movie – this is not a good thing…
Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero) wonders if Julian Jerome (William deVry) really is out of the mob and can be a father. To confirm, she goes to see her other mobbed up baby daddy Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) but rather than making her feel better, Sonny shares his suspicions that Julian is far from having clean hands. This makes Olivia think she should keep the secret despite the guilt.
Julian is angry at Brad for messing with Lucas’ mind and also has to reassure Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) that he’s really out of the mob. Alexis is increasingly uncertain. Julian also catches Denise DeMuccio (Maura West) talking to Dr Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) and figures out that Denise is Ava. His sister is forced to come clean to him but Ava leverages him to keep quiet and help her out.
Jordan Ashford (Vinessa Antoine) is back at Sonny’s place bugging him about the mob violence and blaming him. Sonny tells her it’s Julian at fault and Jordan is getting frustrated all around. Nothing productive comes from this talk. Molly Lansing-Davis (Haley Pullos) is concerned about TJ Ashford (Tequan Richmond) living with Sonny and then TJ turns spy for Sonny – is he watching Julian?
Sonny and Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) are distracted from their wedding planning worried about Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig). Carly chats up Michael Quartermaine (Chad Duell) about Morgan and then Michael in turn talks to Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo). Michael tells her that Morgan might be bipolar like their dad and they wonder if that’s why Morgan has been so erratic.
Carly runs into Madeline Reeves (Donna Mills) and they talk about their kids. Who knew they had anything at all in common? Carly shares her concerns about Morgan’s mental health while Maddy tells her how tough it’s been for her to have a mentally unhinged kid in Nina Clay (Michelle Stafford) setting aside the fact that Madeline is the one who drove her nuts…
Franco’s (Roger Howarth) trial for killing Silas Clay (Michael Easton) will start this week and Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) wants to nail him. Nina is ready to sacrifice herself to save Franco and she and Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) keep working the case. Nina and Nathan find some evidence that may indicate that Madeline killed Silas and they can exonerate Franco.
Scotty Baldwin (Kin Shriner) isn’t waiting for them, though. The trial starts and Scotty gets Denise on the stand and will force an admission from her that she’s really Ava. That will be okay so long as Ava got the evidence implicating her in Connie Falconeri’s killing away from Ric out of his DA desk. Is that what Julian was going to help with? The Ava unveiling is happening!
