The General Hospital recap for October 14-18 features the ineptitude of the Port Charles prison system and proof that, despite her prowess as a businesswoman, Nina is not a very smart person.
General Hospital Recap: Weekly Highlights
After last week’s meticulous frame job, Sam (Kelly Monaco) had one single shot at gaining her freedom. Jason (Steve Burton) laid the groundwork by getting Andre (Anthony Montgomery) to positively identify Bryce Henderson (Brian Gross) — Sam’s accuser — as the man who attempted to stab him to death.
When confronted by Stone Cold, Bryce seemed to really contemplate flipping on his boss — Peter August — but he wanted a little more time to ruminate on his options. The Pentonville guards then escorted Bryce back to his cell and left him with his new bunkmate — serial killer Ryan Chamberlin (Jon Lindstrom).
It might seem strange to a normal, well-functioning adult that a prison would house serial killers in the same cell as a person remanded on lesser charges (like arranging an escape from the law) but in Port Charles, it’s apparently not strange at all.
And since Bryce was the only thing standing between Sam and her own incarceration at Pentonville he, of course, had to die. His crime? Making lewd and suggestive comments about Ava (Maura West).
You would think that this incident would be enough to make the prison rethink their housing policy but alas, the bureaucrats haven’t learned their lesson.

After he spun one heck of a yarn that threw everyone and anyone under the bus except for himself and Liesl, Valentin emerged victorious. Not only did Nina buy his tale hook line and sinker but she pulled him in for a big ole celebratory kiss!
Poor Sasha however, wasn’t going to receive an olive branch from Nina anytime in the near future. That was made perfectly clear when Nina called up Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) and had the PCPD issue a warrant for the girl’s arrest on a charge of fraud! Ever the martyr, Sasha refused to divulge Valentin’s role in the con.
The one positive to come out of this week is that crazy Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) parole was flatly denied. For some reason, the board didn’t buy the sociopath’s apologizes or …continue reading on the next page —>
