The General Hospital recap for Thursday, August 22 features a confrontation between uber villains, a deceleration of love, and a major revelation.
At Pentonville, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) overheard Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) taunting Peter (Wes Ramsey) with his secret. Later, a riot erupted and the prison is sent into lockdown so coincidence of coincidences, Nelle was ushered into the visitor’s room and handcuffed to a table right next to Shiloh.
The black widow took the opportunity to play cat and mouse with the man trying to disrupt her plans for baby Wiley. She asked him a number of pointed questions and revealed every bit of juicy gossip that Harmony has provided about the disgraced cult leader.
Nelle’s interest was piqued when Shiloh revealed he owns ELQ stock. When the guard came to collect her, Nelle threatened that their conversation is not over yet.
Hayden (Rebecca Budig) did her best to alleviate the tension at Elizabeth’s (Rebecca Herbst) when her sister had to explain to Aiden why Franco (Roger Howarth) was no longer at the house.
When Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrived for a pow-wow with Liz, Hayden made a hasty exit. The P.I. came bearing some good news: Dr. Maddox has been located and Drew has agreed to track him down and get him back to Port Charles.
At the Metro Court, Ava (Maura West) ran into Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) and they discussed her dream about Kiki’s spiritual visitation. They were interrupted by Draco whom Ava offered a sympathetic ear. She cautioned him not to waste the opportunity he has been given to reinvent himself and start anew without any past baggage.
Peter called Maxie (Kirsten Storms) away from a wine tasting that she was attending with Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Dustin and he was poised to tell her everything about his past including his partnership with Helena.
However, Maxie didn’t allow Peter to get that far and she surprised both of them when she declared that she is in love with him. Peter reciprocated her feelings but decided to keep quiet. He returned to the prison and agreed to help facilitate Shiloh’s release.
Hayden made her way to Charlie’s to make a call to a mystery person. After making contact she asks them to put “her” on the phone and then expressed her love to her daughter! General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
