Here are some “General Hospital” spoilers just for you for the Wednesday May 27 episode of our favorite ABC soap! First, Shawn Butler’s (Sean Blakemore) hearing is on and all the important players are there. Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) will confront Jordan Ashford (Vinessa Antoine) in the courtroom about being a snitch and landing her lover in the slammer. There will be a shock for both Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) and Sonny when Scotty Baldwin (Kin Shriner) announces that the DA has offered Shawn a deal. But will Shawn rat out Sonny for a chance to be with son TJ Ashford (Tequan Richmond)?
Either Shawn will take the deal and witness protection and head out of town with TJ but, more likely, he’ll refuse to roll over on Sonny and be sent to jail. This will be an important lesson for TJ that may determine whether, later in life, he will pursue law and order like his mother or the mob like Shawn. TJ seems more inclined to admire the Port Charles mobsters and see his mom as the scumbag – could be fun character development for later.
Yesterday, we saw “Denise” aka Ava Jerome (Maura West). The question is, have GH show runners created a new character for West to play or is Ava faking or is her brain scrambled from the chemo? FYI, strong chemotherapy really does scramble your brain significantly, so they could certainly push that plot line. Either way, Commish Sloane (Grayson McCouch) has her in custody. “Denise” claims she’s innocent, but fingerprints don’t lie.
Wonder if Ava somehow rigged her records to change out her fingerprints. Hmm… Glad West is back, Ava is alive and well (in whatever form) and that her plot line is moving forward. Also, isn’t it hilarious that one of Denise’s first instincts was to hit on juicy young stud Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig)? Can’t imagine Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) will like a reminder of her BF shagging her mom since Kiki and Morgan have just reconnected.
Franco (Roger Howarth) will come to tell Nina Clay (Michelle Stafford) that Ric is after her money and up to no good. Now we know Nina is already having doubts about her new hubby, and Franco’s testimony can only further convince her. Problem is, Nina isn’t one who likes to admit she was duped, so she may stubbornly cling to this fake marriage rather than admit to Franco that she screwed up when she said I do to Ric. Will be interesting to watch!
Also, Valerie Spencer (Brytni Sarpi) heads to the PCPD to apply for a job. She’ll run into Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) who will be happy to see her because he’s a nice guy. Once he mentions to wife Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) that Valerie is looking for a job at the cop shop, though, it will not be so nice. Lulu is throwing jealous rage tantrums, Dante won’t like it and this will put some kinks into their perfect little relationship.
Lulu will also go visit Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) and they will have a little spat. Is she angry at him for letting Valerie go job hunting in Port Charles or did she find out some of the other shenanigans her recently-more-evil half-bro Nik is up to? I’m enjoying Nikolas stretching his Cassadine wings and getting darker all the time – as evidenced by his recent attempted assassination against Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig).
Plus, looks like Liz Webber (Rebecca Herbst) will chat on the phone with Nikolas and offer an update on Hayden’s medical condition. She’ll reassure Nik that Hayden is out of commission for now because of the post-surgery coma. Nik will let her continue to think that Hayden took a bullet meant for Jake Doe (Billy Miller) rather than admitting he was the one who had her taken out. Liz will tell him their secret is safe for now but will Jake overhear and ask what’s going on and how will Liz cover?
And, very exciting, Madeline West (Donna Mills) will be back this week. Can’t wait to see what trouble she’ll start. Will she mess with Nina? Will she put her sticky fingers into Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) and Maxie Jones’ (Kirsten Storms) relationship? Either way, wherever Madeline goes, mischief follows.
