General Hospital (GH) spoilers recap for Wednesday, August 18, reveals that Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) fought for a Scout Cain (Ella Ramicieri) reunion while Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) chose to blast boogeyman Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) and ultimately missed the mob meeting.
At Wyndemere, Carly got updates on Nikolas causing all the party mayhem and was furious.
Meanwhile, Nikolas confirmed to Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Chavez), Laura Collins (Genie Francis) and Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) that Ava Jerome’s (Maura West) car had just been set on fire, so he assumed he was wrong about the stalker.
Spencer felt the neglect he’d dealt with was bad enough, but now his father had resorted to punishment. He teared up over Nikolas using his mother’s memory against him and stormed out, so Trina Robinson (Sydney Mikayla) chased after Spencer to offer comfort.
Spencer wondered if Trina could forgive him if he hypothetically was responsible for what Nikolas claimed.
However, Trina acted like it didn’t matter since Spencer wasn’t to blame and couldn’t have been capable of all that.
After Trina told Spencer was sorry for what he was going through, he wondered if that was all she had to say.
Spencer hinted for Trina to tell him what to do, but she joked that she wasn’t Yoda and felt he had to decide for himself how to handle Nikolas.
Trina mentioned something about being friends, so Spencer wondered if that’s what they were – implying they could be more. Cameron Webber (William Lipton) interrupted the close moment briefly, but Trina turned down the offer to leave and chose to stay with Spencer.
Back with Nikolas, he faced Carly’s wrath since she had something important to do and had to race over all because he was playing boogeyman.
Nikolas offered a weak apology for the inconvenience and refused to take parenting lessons from Carly of all people.
Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) stole a moment alone with Carly to quiz her about what was going on that was so important.
As for Laura, she ranted about Nikolas letting his rage blind him and didn’t want him to follow down the same dark Cassadine path as his father.
At The Savoy, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) asked to join Jasper “Jax” Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) – though she made it clear it was as a friend only since she was happily taken these days.
When Liesl found out Jax had been trying to get leverage on Carly, she suggested there was an art to gathering covert evidence and added that he should’ve come to her for tips.
Obrecht pointed out that she’d love to watch Carly squirm and would enjoy messing with Jason even more. She was interested in helping Jax out with his mission.
As for Jason, he took some heat at the five families meeting since Carly wasn’t there. Jason insisted something came up, but the other heads of the families seemed offended that Carly couldn’t be bothered to show up.
When they started to leave, Jason suggested he’d take that as a sign they were uncooperative and would react accordingly.
That convinced everyone to stick around, but concerns remained since Carly said she was in charge last time – now here was Jason claiming he was in charge instead.
Jason shut down the idea that Carly should be eliminated and insisted she wouldn’t go to the feds, but the other mob leaders considered her a liability until she was actually Jason’s wife.
Carly showed up right as the meeting was breaking up and learned she was too late. She could tell there was a tense vibe as Jason sat there brooding.
Meanwhile, Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) opened up to Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) about the phone call she received that was supposedly from Drew.
They debated whether it was legit, but Sam ultimately felt she owed it to Scout to look into this. In the end, Sam grew more certain of the voice she heard and decided Drew was alive.
As for Drew in his foreign prison cell, he hoped Sam would ask questions and look deeper into his disappearance.
Drew had a flashback of when Scout was a newborn and was eager to get back to his little girl. He knew he’d missed years with Scout and wondered what she was like now.
The guard taunted Drew and warned him that if Sam did go poking around, she’d end up dead. There was talk about the boss who plucked Drew out of the ocean and went to a great deal of trouble to extract him from his old life.
Drew wound up attacking the guard, who overpowered his captive and threw him to the floor.
Once Drew was alone, he looked pleased with himself since he was able to score the guard’s ink pen. Drew pulled out the inside and planned to use it to pick the lock of his handcuffs.
General Hospital spoilers say Drew’s fight to get home will come with some twists and turns, so stay tuned.
