General Hospital (GH) spoilers for Thursday, July 9, tease that fans will see another exciting GH classic. The ABC soap will throw it back to an episode that originally aired on January 6, 2011. General Hospital spoilers say there are some schemes and showdowns in this encore, so here’s what to expect.
For starters, Diane Miller (Carolyn Henessy) consults with Theo Hoffman (Daniel Benzali) on a case. A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil) and Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna), but Diane suggests Brenda clearly shot Anton Banovic in self-defense. Diane feels like it should be easy to prove that.
However, Theo thinks it’s complicated since Dante and Brenda are tied to Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). Once Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) arrives, he irritates Theo by sneezing and spreading his germs. Theo isn’t sure he’s willing to do the case anymore, but Diane assures him that Spinelli won’t be a pest.
At GH, Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) receives some words of encouragement from Robin Scorpio-Drake (Kimberly McCullough). Although Patrick feels guilty about not being able to save Ali after the bus accident, Robin doesn’t think Patrick could’ve known how serious Ali’s condition was. Ali wasn’t presenting symptoms before her health went downhill fast.
Patrick feels a little better thanks to Robin and reflects on the family moments they had with Emma Scorpio-Drake (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) at Christmas. After Patrick brings up the idea of a date, a flattered Robin takes the cautious approach and thinks he should ask another time.
Lisa Niles (Brianna Brown) grins deviously as Terrell Jackson (Khary Payton) scores a position at the hospital on a trial basis. Terrell chats with Robin about how she manages to balance marriage with work before Robin admits she’s separated from Patrick.
In a moment alone with Lisa, Terrell’s curious why he was summoned. Lisa needs someone to seduce Robin – and that someone is Terrell! Next, Kristina Corinthos (Lexi Ainsworth) is glad to see Sonny when he arrives for a visit. It’s clear that Kristina’s having a rough time following Ali’s death. Kristina feels responsible for what happened since she pushed her friend to go on the trip.
Sonny makes a speech about loss and his experience with it. After Sonny opens up about Stone Cates (Michael Sutton), he suggests that time will help heal Kristina’s heart. Sonny also thinks Ali will live on inside Kristina, so she’s comforted by the thought.
Meanwhile, Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) wants to make sure Morgan Corinthos (Aaron Sanders) didn’t suffer more injuries besides his broken leg. Morgan thinks Carly’s going overboard, but Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) feels like it’s best if Morgan just goes along with it. Since Michael saved Morgan’s life, Morgan thanks his brother.
Later, Carly brings up Abby Haver (Andrea Bogart) to Michael and riles him up in the process. After Carly suggests Abby and Michael are more than friendly, Michael senses the judgment in his mom’s voice. Michael suggests that Carly isn’t in charge of his life and won’t decide who’s in it.
Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) is busy fretting by unconscious Olivia Falconei’s (Lisa LoCicero) bedside, but Lulu Spencer (Julie Marie Berman) insists there’s still hope. Theo pesters Dante about the case, but Dante can’t deal with him right now. Sonny agrees and feels like Theo needs to leave Dante alone.
Johnny Zacchara (Brandon Barash) stops by, so Dante suggests he could spend some time with Olivia. Since Johnny and Olivia broke up, Johnny opts to head out. After Dante makes a sweet speech about how much he loves his mom, Olivia stirs awake and reaches up to touch him.
At Kelly’s, Abby catches up with Michael and reveals that Sonny’s in the loop on her occupation. Michael’s pleased that Abby and Sonny have met. When Michael admits he wants to buy Abby breakfast, she’s on board with the idea.
Back with Carly, she voices her concerns to Sonny. Carly rants about the age difference between Abby and Michael before pointing out Abby may be after Michael’s money. Sonny doesn’t think so and reveals that Abby’s a dancer at a local strip club. Carly reels as she finds yet another reason to be concerned!
