General Hospital (GH) spoilers recap for Wednesday, January 29, reveal that Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), and Mike Corbin (Max Gail) stopped by a bar in Brooklyn while on their trip to take Mike to the clinical trial. Mike took an immediate liking to the bartender and sat with her, talking happily.
Sonny and Jason chatted at length about various issues, including how Mike would react to the clinical trial. Jason told Sonny that he was doing a lot for Mike, and that whether Mike knew realized it or not, he was a great son.
After a couple of hours at the bar, they decided to head on their way, but Jason noticed that a man at the bar was hiding a gun and yelled for everyone to get down. Jason shot at the guy with the gun, while Sonny, Mike, and everyone else ducked for cover.
Meanwhile, Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) talked with Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) at the docks. He had texted Josslyn to meet him, as he wanted to explain in person that he invited Nelle Benson Archer (Chloe Lanier) to move into the Q mansion.
Josslyn strongly protested, but Michael insisted that it would protect Wiley Cooper-Jones (Theo and Erik Olson) from Nelle.
Josslyn wondered why Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) couldn’t just revoke the adoption, but Michael said that the adoption was final and by law couldn’t be undone.
Josslyn persisted, noting that Michael was Wiley’s godfather at Lucas Jones’ (Ryan Carnes) request, so Michael should think about what Lucas would want given everything that’s happened.
Next, Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) sparred with Nelle at the Metro Court. Carly noted that Nelle would surely end up back in prison, and Nelle fired back that she could blow Carly’s world apart. Carly had then had enough of Nelle’s delusions and left to go run errands.
Across the room, Willow ranted to Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) about how she’s afraid that Lucas may never wake up and Brad Cooper (Parry Shen) will be left to raise Wiley. Sasha did her best to calm Willow down and reassure her that they would all help look after Wiley.
As Willow was on her way out, Nelle approached her and needled her about how hard it must be to see Wiley all the time and basically relive giving him up. Willow then piped back that while she’s sorry that Michael lost his child, she’s increasingly glad that Nelle isn’t a mother. This unnerved Nelle.
At Crimson, Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) arrived to pick up Charlotte Cassadine (Scarlett Fernandez) from her visit with Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros). Lulu noticed the sliced-up picture of Sasha and quizzed Charlotte about it, but Charlotte lied and said it was Nina who cut the picture up. Lulu seemed to accept this.
After Charlotte and Lulu took off, Jasper “Jax” Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) arrived with champagne and cheeses from Switzerland to share with Nina, all to help her focus on the good things in life and move on in a positive way.
They chatted happily, toasted to moving forward, then danced. One thing led to another, and they kissed passionately.
At the courthouse, Laura Collins (Genie Francis) arrived ahead of Valentin Cassadine’s (James Patrick Stuart) arraignment. Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) then arrived and Martin Grey (Michael E. Knight) announced that he’s filed a motion to dismiss the attempted murder charge against Valentin, which would let him out on bail.
Laura balked at that and exited after some sparring with Valentin, and later Lulu arrived to find out that Valentin made bail. Lulu was infuriated and when Valentin reappeared, Lulu raged that she was going to file a restraining order against him to protect Charlotte.
After Lulu left, Martin and Valentin then had an interesting conversation. Valentin said that Nelle was proving to be a good distraction, and that the Quartermaine and the Corinthos families were awfully distracted right now. Martin then assured Valentin that Nelle didn’t know that he was really working for Valentin.
Meanwhile, Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) and Ava Jerome (Maura West) chatted on the airplane home from France, with Ava urging him not to give up on Spencer Cassadine (Nicolas Bechtel).
They chatted at length about what it was like to be estranged from one’s child, but after a while, Ava started pressing him about signing the post-nuptial agreement.
After some back-and-forth, Nikolas said he’d sign the post-nup on one condition: she needed to remain faithful to him. He said that a man whose wife cheated on him looked weak, and she understood. They agreed to a platonic marriage but agreed to not cheat on each other.
At the Corinthos Coffee warehouse, Carly arrived with Gladys Corbin (Bonnie Burroughs) in tow. Carly had some signed papers to drop off for one of Sonny’s men, but after they arrived, a man with a gun started shooting and everyone ducked for cover.
Sonny’s guy got Gladys hidden in a back office, and Carly nearly got shot but ducked behind some coffee bags.
Finally, back at the docks. Laura met up with Michael, wanting to talk about the riverfront revitalization plan. He balked at some of her plans, and when she stepped aside to take a call, Sasha appeared and told Michael that she had decided to move in with him.
Josslyn then reappeared to retrieve her journal, then saw a man with a gun and shouted for everyone to get down. Everyone ducked while the man kept shooting. Michael covered Sasha, and Laura ran for cover, but got shot.
