General Hospital Recap: Esme Prince And Ace Together Again
Laura (Genie Francis) called Esme (Avery Kristen Pohl) and told her to get down to the hospital to see Ace as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) spent more time bonding with the baby in an exam room. After Laura brought Spencer a lollipop, he admitted Esme had every right to come see her son, but was not happy when she burst in the door and grabbed the baby. Esme was grateful for everyone’s help in taking care of Ace, including Trina’s (Tabyana Ali). When Ace was finally given a clean bill of health by Austin (Roger Howarth), Laura, Esme, and Spencer left for home while Trina and her family looked on.

When Trina reunited with Portia (Brook Kerr), she told her she would never have made it back safely if Spencer wasn’t there for her. Curtis (Donnell Turner) interrupted before Portia could say anything against Spencer, but Trina then asked to talk to Taggert (Réal Andrews) alone. She told her dad she wanted to take a DNA test to see who biologically fathered her. She didn’t want secrets anymore, plus seeing Spencer with Ace made her understand how important family was.
Portia and Curtis had a few moments alone in which Portia thanked him for rescuing Trina, but the WSB agent who Scott summoned last week interrupted them. He took Curtis aside and offered him a job as a WSB asset. Curtis said liked his job owning and running The Savoy but agreed to think about it.
GH Recap: Tracy Drove A Hard Bargain
Tracy (Jane Elliot) reminded Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) that she owed her a favor for helping Chase (Josh Swickard) get his job back. Oddly enough, that favor was getting her old job back at Deception. BLQ insisted that wasn’t what she wanted as a career, but Tracy didn’t care and insisted that Brook Lynn do it anyway and keep her eyes and ears open at research and development. Tracy refused to tell BLQ why she wanted to know what the next big thing would be. After Tracy reminded her that Chase might learn the truth about what she did, BLQ had no choice but to agree to Tracy’s demands.
To prove she was willing to rat out her granddaughter, Tracy called a curious Chase and suggested they have lunch. After the call, Brook Lynn finally agreed to work at Deception again.
Chase was also thrilled to be welcomed back to work at the PCPD, with applause and a standing ovation. Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) happily gave him a full caseload, including the Cody bracelet case. Chase didn’t seem to believe that Cody was the culprit. Neither did Dante, who didn’t think Cody would hurt Sasha like that.
The subject soon turned to Brook Lynn and Chase admitted that sometimes a person does the wrong thing for the right reasons. Perhaps both Cody and Brook Lynn were examples of that.
General Hospital Recap: Sasha’s Big Step, Cody’s Big Problem
Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) couldn’t believe that Maxie (Kirsten Storms) wanted her to appear on the Home and Hearth channel again after having a mental breakdown on live TV last year. Sasha was ready to say no when Maxie stepped in and told her that she’d never forgive herself if she didn’t take a leap of faith and do this. After more coaxing, Sasha was ready to agree but Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) stepped in as her guardian and said no.
As Sasha listened to Maxie and Gladys, argue, Sasha made her own decision. She was going to go on TV and take charge of her own life. She also hoped to be a help and inspiration to other women watching.
Cody (Josh Kelly) and Selina (Lydia Look) met up at The Savoy, where he asked to get in on her latest poker game, but she was disgusted with him for allegedly stealing that bracelet and getting caught. Cody claimed innocence, but Selina didn’t buy it, so he insisted that Gladys set him up. Gladys soon showed up and told Selina to get rid of Cody, so she just threatened to get rid of them both. After some hemming and hawing, Selina finally agreed to give them both a place at the poker table.
