General Hospital (GH) spoilers recap for Thursday, August 6, reveal that Dante Falconeri (Dominick Zamprogna) did pushups at the WSB facility in Geneva while plagued with memories of his nightmare of killing Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan).
A doctor came in, saying that Dante had been refusing to engage in therapy, and that if he doesn’t cooperate, he could risk being in WSB care for life. Dante lamented that he couldn’t control his actions, and he said that he had the nightmare of killing his ex-wife every night.
The doctor said that Dante could recover, but only if he faced what happened to him, and that hat alternative is oblivion. Dante said that at least this way, he knew that his family was safe.
The doctor pledged not to give up hope on him, and he noticed the pencil and pad of paper on Dante’s table. The doctor said he’d leave the pencil and paper with Dante in case there was someone he wanted to reach out to. Dante flashed back to his goodbye with Lulu.
At Brando Corbin’s (Johnny Wactor) garage, Lulu had just had a flat tire repaired when Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) walked in the place. Lulu and Cyrus bantered back and forth, with Lulu blasting Cyrus over wanting control of the hospital. Lulu took off, and Brando asked Cyrus if he had a problem with his car.
Cyrus said no, that he was there on another matter.
At Deception, Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring), Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson), and Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) looked over photos from Sasha’s photo shoot. Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) walked in and wanted to see the photos, then he said that they needed a “voice” and that he had found one in Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Briana Lane).
Brook Lynn walked in, and Valentin talked up Brook Lynn and all the good she could do for the Deception brand.
Maxie said no way, that she wasn’t going to have Brook Lynn involved in Deception. Lucy tried to get Maxie to pipe down, but Maxie and Brook Lynn proceeded to argue over Lulu, who’s Maxie’s best friend.
Brook Lynn and Maxie rehashed Brook Lynn and Lulu’s history, and Dante and Dustin Phillips’ (Mark Lawson) names were mentioned. Lucy then took Maxie into the hallway to talk some sense into her and to keep her from angering Valentin.
Soon, Lucy and Maxie came back, and Maxie agreed reluctantly to work with Brook Lynn. Lucy and Maxie left, as did Brook Lynn, and Valentin talked briefly with Sasha to see how she was doing. Sasha said she was just trying to throw herself into her work. Valentin related.
At the hospital, TJ Ashford (Tajh Bellow) talked with Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner). Curtis cautioned TJ not to overdo things with work, but TJ said he wasn’t going to take time off because he didn’t want special treatment after his kidnapping incident.
Curtis warned TJ not to burn out, and then TJ mentioned that Jordan Ashford (Briana Nicole Henry) had been largely out of touch lately. Curtis said that he’d talk with Jordan.
Elsewhere in the hospital, Maxie walked in and talked to someone at the nurses’ station about seeing her OB-GYN. And in another area, Lulu talked briefly with Lucy, who filled Lulu in on Maxie’s earlier argument with Brook Lynn.
Lulu learned that Dante’s name came up during the argument, and Lucy said that while she didn’t know Dante, she was sure that he’d want Lulu to be happy.
At the Metro Court, Sam McCall (Lindsay Hartley) talked with Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) at the bar. Sam thanked Carly for being Jason Morgan’s medical power of attorney, and the two women discussed how being moms changed their perspectives on life.
Sam lamented about how she had made the decision to go after Shiloh Archer (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) instead of thinking about the consequences for her kids. Carly could relate to that.
Sam told Carly all about what happened with her parole officer, and how the parole officer now has more control over Sam than ever. Sam was frustrated with herself for trying to manipulate her parole officer, and she noted that it all backfired on her.
Talk turned back to Jason’s power of attorney, and Sam said that she’s glad Jason has Carly. Carly was touched, and she said that they don’t have anything to worry about because nothing’s going to happen to Jason.
At the courthouse, Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and Jason bumped into each other. Chase quizzed Jason about the warehouse explosion, but Jason had nothing to say.
Jordan then walked up and dragged Chase away, admonishing him for antagonizing Jason and risking a lawsuit. Chase seemed puzzled by this. Chase took off, and Jordan went to talk to Jason.
Jordan lamented to Jason about being under Cyrus’ thumb, and Jason counseled her to ride it out and let Cyrus think that he controlled her for now. Cyrus then called Jordan, demanding that she go to his new residence for a visit.
Jordan agreed, then turned to Jason and recalled how he came to work for Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) – that he had an accident and had cognitive issues. Jordan quipped that Jason would have made a good cop.
Back at Brando’s garage, Jason walked in to pick up his motorbike. Brando said that he went ahead and installed the part on Jason’s bike himself, even though he knows that Jason liked to do the work himself.
Brando shared that Cyrus had visited earlier, and Jason said that if Cyrus comes back there, then he wants to know about it. “You will,” Brando said.
At Jordan’s office, Curtis arrived to see Jordan, but she wasn’t there. He encountered Chase, who said that he’d just seen Jordan at the courthouse with Jason. Curtis said he’d track Jordan down.
Back at the courthouse, Sasha ran into Chase and they talked briefly about the custody hearing and how Wiley Quartermaine Corinthos (Erik and Theo Olson) was doing.
Sasha seemed upset and emotional as Chase said that everything they did will be worth it. After Sasha and Chase walked off, Curtis came along and tried to call Jordan but got voicemail.
At Cyrus’ condo, Jordan arrived and asked Cyrus why he wanted to gain control of GH. “Why does a man like you want with a hospital?” Jordan asked. Cyrus said that it would demonstrate he’s a good person. “But you’re not a good person,” Jordan said. Cyrus then said that the best insurance policy was having good allies in law enforcement.
Finally, viewers saw a quick scene of Jason lying in the road after an apparent accident on his motorbike. Jason wasn’t wearing a helmet.
