Spencer And Esme Have Quite A Day
After learning that Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) is the one who pushed Esme (Avery Kristen Pohl) to get close to him so that he could destroy Nikolas (Adam Huss) and Ava’s (Maura West) marriage, Spencer blamed himself for everything bad that has happened between him and his father. He tearfully lamented his woes to Laura (Genie Francis). Of course, Laura told him it wasn’t his fault and that she was also furious at Nikolas for faking his death for three full years. He hated that he is the one who let Esme into their lives and wondered why Nikolas was not there to meet his new son.
Esme also had her own family problems as Heather (Alley Mills) stood before her, trying to act like a normal mother giving her daughter newborn advice. Heather was also promising that they could all be together at Spring Ridge since New York law would allow Esme to have her baby there with her. Esme angrily informed her that she would not allow Heather anywhere near her baby. She told her mother she was as dead to her as her father was.
Outside the elevator, a hysterical Heather encountered Laura and accused her of wanting Esme’s baby for herself. She warned Laura there would be hell to pay as the cops dragged her off, and Laura rolled her eyes.
Spencer used the distraction Heather was causing to sneak into Esme’s room. When she asked him how Ace was, Spencer told her he was just fine and would be coming home with him and Laura. Esme then panicked at the idea of not having her baby with her in prison.
GH Recap: Elizabeth’s Confession Becomes Ava’s Problem
Before she told the PCPD anything, Molly (Haley Pullos) presented Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) with an immunity deal to sign that allowed her to walk free as long as she informed the authorities where Esme was for months. Liz told Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Molly everything, including how she and Nikolas realized Esme wasn’t The Hook, but that Esme jumped off the parapet before they could decide what to do with her. Liz was shocked when everything went smoothly, and she was allowed to just go home. However, Nikolas is now under investigation, and a team was being sent to Spoon Island.
Ava (Maura West) paid Austin (Roger Howarth) a visit, and he convinced her they would eventually move Nikolas’s body, but not just yet. However, when Finn (Michael Easton) popped in to give Austin an update on his health, he told Ava that he was sorry Nik skipped town. She immediately knew that Elizabeth had been telling Finn things and wanted to know where Liz was. When Finn wouldn’t answer, she pressed him some more in the hall and asked if Elizabeth was visiting the cops. He just wished her luck, so Ava waltzed right into Austin’s room and informed him he would be checking himself out so they could move the body ASAP.
General Hospital Recap: Curtis Berates Jordan, Trina Leans On Joss
Curtis (Donnell Turner) was still big mad over Portia’s (Brook Kerr) big secret, as well as the fact that Jordan (Tanisha Harper) knew what was going on and didn’t tell him anything. To that end, he paid Jordan a visit to take her to task for not telling him another woman’s story. Curtis was more dismayed to learn how long Jordan had suspected things. Jordan just informed her ex she had better things to do than stand around and listen to his man pain.
In their dorm room, Trina (Tabyana Ali) told Josslyn (Eden McCoy) all about how her mother kept the secret of her possible paternity from her for her entire life. Joss was shocked, but when she asked her if she knew who her real father might be, Trina emphatically told her that Taggert (Réal Andrews) would always be her dad, and that was that.
Joss said she wished she had been there for Trina when she found out, but Trina informed her friend she was fine because Spencer was with her, and he was everything she needed. After Joss left, Curtis showed up to finally talk to the young woman who might be his daughter.
