The General Hospital recap for Thursday, May 23 features accusations and action as characters try to pass the blame for Ryan’s return and Sonny and Jason storm the Dawn of Day house.
Lucy (Lynn Herring), Mac (John J. York) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner) managed to lower Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) to the stage and untie him just as Curtis (Donnell L. Turner) and Laura (Genie Francis) arrived in the ballroom.
Kevin came to a worriedly asked about Ava’s (Maura West) location. Margaux (Elizabeth Henderickson) arrived and Laura laid the blame of April Tremblay’s death at her feet –as the D.A. Margaux NEVER should have called off the search for Ryan.
Hardly one to accept blame, Margaux dressed her serious faux pas as an “educated decision” and later took Chase (Josh Swickard) aside to authorize lethal force if necessary to bring Ryan down.
Curtis arrived at Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) beside but upon learning that Ryan was alive and at large Jordan had a serious cardiac episode. She had to be intubated and Monica (Leslie Charleson) arrived with some very unsettling news.
She told Curtis and TJ (Tajh Bellow) that Jordan’s heart will not be able to continue suffering under the dialysis treatments for much longer. Curtis, after learning Kevin is no longer a viable donor, comes to a startling realization: if Kevin was a match surly his identical twin brother is as well!
Lucas (Ryan Carnes) was able to put two and two together and realized that Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) and Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) were Willey’s biological parents and berated Willow for putting their adoption of the child in jeopardy by not getting Shiloh’s consent.
However, Michael (Chad Duell) and Willow were quick to explain her reasonings. Brad still remained unconvinced that DOD could have such a dark side.
Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Shiloh arrived at the DOD attic where she agreed to sip from the ceremonial cup and submit to the tattooing all while Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) sat and listened in a nearby car.
When they felt they had enough to bust Shiloh they burst through the door and duked it out with two henchmen only to discover that Shiloh had absconded with Sam.
Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) made his presence known to Ava (Maura West), who had to sweet talk him into putting down the large carving knife he arrived with. With the weapon down Ava drew her own — a loaded handgun- – and prepared to shoot the devilish doctor!
