Is there anyone left in Port Charles that doesn’t know who Jake really is? Check out these “General Hospital” spoilers for the Tuesday, July 21 episode of the hit ABC soap. Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) will greet Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) who is just back from Portland where she was visiting her baby girl with Damien Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). Be sure to keep an eye out for Nathan’s arm bandage and an explanation – Paevey had a nasty motorcycle accident recently and smashed his wrist requiring surgery!
Nathan has an extra-special welcome home planned for Maxie, but his romantic plans go awry once his evil mom Madeline Reeves (Donna Mills) shows up. Maddy has two motivations for interrupting the date. First, she doesn’t think Maxie is good enough for her precious baby boy and second, Maddy wants to involve Nathan in the plot to gaslight his sister Nina Clay (Michelle Stafford).
Of course Nathan wouldn’t knowingly participate in the scheme, but Madeline will tell him that Nina is off her rocker again, hearing babies cry and going off the deep end. Nathan’s buy-in will be necessary when Maddy and rat fink Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) try and remand Nina back in the Shadybrook nuthouse so they can steal away her money. Maddy is laying groundwork, but annoying Nathan.
PCPD Commish Jordan Ashford (Vinessa Antoine) calls Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) in and tells him she’s had enough of his dad Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) doing mob business unchecked in her city. Jordan tells Dante to bring his dad in but will also chastise Dante for fooling around with co-worker Valerie Spencer (Brytni Sarpi) and causing strife in the workplace.
And speaking of strife, Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) shows up to confront Valerie. Not only does she want to rake Val over the coals for kissing her husband, Lulu wants to make sure that a kiss is all it was. Valerie will try to hold her own against Lulu’s rage, but will end up breaking down and Jordan will step up to help Valerie deal with the scrutiny.
Dante is feeling the heat and will confess to Nathan that it was far more than a kiss he shared with Valerie. Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) is thrilled when his spanky buns Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot) shows up to the Haunted Star and hopes it’s to reconcile. He’s so excited he proposes again but Tracy can’t let him back in her heart setting the stage for his final farewell on Monday 7/27.
Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) and Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) talk about the recent attack on Sonny’s syndicate and the shooting and Sam questions whether her dad Julian Jerome (William deVry) has really gotten out of the biz or if he’s lying to them and making a big move on his rival. Sonny confronts Julian on the issue and Julian vehemently denies it was his him and offers to prove himself.
Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) will take Josslyn Jacks (Hannah Nordberg) to GH for another checkup now that she’s wondering where the kidney came from that was transplanted into her daughter. And Liz Webber (Rebecca Herbst) has questions for Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) about how he couldn’t have known all these years that her son was alive and on Cassadine Island. Expect more denials.
