And finally, Alexis had a warning for Gregory. Now, let’s dig a little deeper into the details.

General Hospital: Cyrus Has A Reckoning

As Cyrus (Jeff Kober) gasped for breath in the prison library, he entered a red light, which seemed to be his own version of hell. Laura (Genie Francis) was there as his judge and jury. She was forced to tell him that he was dying, and Cyrus refused to accept it. She told him he should have made different choices in life, but he insisted he tried to change for Laura’s sake.

Laura explained that he was given chance after chance to love and threw them all away, but Cyrus regretted his chance for love with his sister the most. Cyrus thought he and Laura were kindred spirits making large life mistakes. He felt if Laura could recognize how alike they were, he could truly be a better person. Laura hugged Cyrus and made him see that his actions resulted from deeply hurt feelings, but still pointed out that the things he did might be too horrible to forgive.

Cyrus admitted he planned to kill Laura the night he took her hostage so they could die together, but he couldn’t go through with it and allowed himself to be shot and go to jail. He explained that he wanted to protect Laura from him. Imaginary Laura believed her brother, so she asked Cyrus if he wanted to finally save himself. The answer was apparently yes because he finally opened his eyes back on Earth.

General Hospital Recap: Sonny’s World Of Troubles

Ava (Maura West) stopped by Carly’s (Laura Wright) to say goodnight to Avery (Ava and Grace Scarola) while she was at her sleepover. When Avery went to watch a movie, Carly had a lot of questions, but Ava didn’t want to answer them clearly. Carly was unhappy with the new nanny situation, mainly because Josslyn didn’t like Betty even though Avery did like her.

Too bad Ava couldn’t answer whether she liked Betty (Ella Lentini) or not because that made Carly even more suspicious. She accused Ava of being up to her old tricks without any awareness at all that she also plays tricks regularly. When Ava decided she would just take Avery home, Carly threatened to tell Sonny (Maurice Benard) when she just knew Sonny sent Avery to Carly to keep her safe. Ava finally relented and let Avery stay.

At the Metro Court, Anna’s (Finola Hughes) ears perked up when Sonny mentioned the Pikeman Group, but she didn’t get to ask too many questions because Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) interrupted them. He wanted to discuss the body Dex (Evan Hofer) called in, but Sonny did his best to change the subject. At least Kristina (Kate Mansi) became the next visitor, so it was a full house as Kristina asked them if they knew who shot them.

When Kristina went to the ladies’ room, the subject turned to Sonny and Anna’s various vague theories on what might have happened. Sonny felt the timing of everything just felt off, from the exposé on Anna, right to the shooting at the pool. Anna finally had to admit to Dante that she wasn’t sure she wanted to still use herself as bait to draw out the shooter.

GH Recap: Kristina And Molly Have Realizations

In the restroom, Trish, the Metro Court hostess, thanked Kristina for opening up her youth center because her brother was kicked out of the house for being gay at age 15. This made Kristina realize how important the work she was doing really was.

TJ (Tajh Bellow) brought home dinner and drinks for Molly (Brooke Anne Smith), but she couldn’t wait to show him her stuffed horse. The horse was symbolic of the newfound closeness between Molly and Kristina. Molly soon asked TJ some hard questions, and he had to admit he wanted a child more than anything, and he’d prefer the child to have his DNA. They both wanted a baby now, but they did not want Kristina to be their surrogate — mainly for Kristina’s sake.

Kristina and Molly’s mom also had a busy evening. Gregory (Gregory Harrison) and Alexis met up in her office, and she told him that Tracy (Jane Elliot) was starting to suspect he was sick. Gregory was glad that Alexis lied to her, but Alexis wondered how much longer he could cover his condition. She warned him he might be unable to hide his condition much longer.
