General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Julian Jerome’s (William deVry) criminal trial kicks off soon and this could land him in prison for the rest of his life. Julian wasn’t the mastermind of the recent crime spree – that was all his awful sister Olivia “Liv” Jerome (Tonja Walker). Julian wasn’t even a willing accomplice in her crimes. He was a hostage thanks to her threats against his family.
Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) has a great track record of keeping Julian out of prison for his past crimes, but this time she can’t defend him against the charges since she has no law license. But Alexis does have a lot of expertise in these matters and she could be the deciding factor in whether Julian goes to jail or walks out of the courthouse a free man, but will Alexis help?
Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) is a good lawyer but he already warned Julian that taking on his case could ruin his track record since the PCPD has tons of evidence against him that can send him to Pentonville for life. General Hospital spoilers say in fact, the DA might go really hard against Julian because he turned down their deal. It was impressive that Julian said “no” to the chance to go free if he set up Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).
Julian was raised in the mob and knows you don’t rat anyone out, but was that the only reason Julian turned down the DA’s deal? General Hospital fans are asking did Julian say no because he feels horrible that Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig) was murdered by his sister. Actually, both of Julian’s sisters contributed to Morgan’s death, so there is lots of bad blood there to make the rivalry between Julian and Sonny worse.
Alexis’ daughters want her to forget Julian and move on with her life, but that’s more easily said than done. Even when Julian was evading police and planning to skip town for good, Alexis willingly went to bed with Julian. Clearly, she still loves him and can’t let him go. Alexis will soon be faced with a dilemma. Can she let Julian go down in flames and take her love with it?
There is still hope for Julexis and the General Hospital writers have teased that Alexis won’t leave her man to rot in prison. Alexis might not be able to stand beside Julian as his lawyer at trial but she can help Scott out with the case. Alexis has tons of expertise dealing with criminal cases and almost always wins at trial. She can’t personally represent Julian, but Alexis can pull strings from behind the curtains.
Her family might hate her for it – and so will her baby daddy Sonny, but Alexis decides she can’t let Julian go down without a fight and steps up to help save him. Alexis knows Julian only helped Liv to protect her, their daughter and his other kids. Julian will walk and it’s Alexis that saves him, but what then?
