General Hospital Recap: Willow Tait Is Down For The Count Again

Michael (Chad Duell) and dying Willow settled in for their quiet wedding night in the living room, but Michael had one last thing he had to do. He brought Willow outside with her bouquet and then carried her over the threshold. The newlyweds talked about their future and what Sonny (Maurice Benard) did for Carly (Laura Wright). Michael still blamed Ned (Wally Kurth) for turning his mother in as Willow reminded Michael that Sonny has been supportive of her and is still supportive of Michael. She just wanted his family to get along and hoped that could happen if she did happen to die. She just wanted Michael and Sonny to get along again.

So, Michael decided to show Willow the video of Sonny making the Pikeman deal so she could see what a mean and horrible ogre Sonny really is. Willow was confused and surprised, so Michael explained what he had been doing for the last year. The shock of it all caused Willow to pass out.

Josslyn (Eden McCoy) returned to her dorm after the wedding and the incident with her mother and thought about Trina, but only in terms of what Spencer said about Dex (Evan Hofer). Finally, she wondered what could be going on with her best friend until Dex arrived at the door. They quickly fell into bed, and in their post-sex state, Josslyn told Dex all about the wedding and what happened to Carly once the ceremony was over.

Despite the fact that Drew (Cameron Mathison) is looking for all of Victor’s hostages, like Trina, Josslyn was only thinking about Drew rescuing Willow. She told Dex it was Sonny who made sure the SEC didn’t know that Drew was heading to Greenland. Dex told her that he finally had the goods on Sonny, and Josslyn was all for bringing him to justice because he broke the law. Carly also broke the law, but Josslyn didn’t want to acknowledge that fact.

Josslyn started feeling a bit of guilt over what was going to happen to Sonny when the feds got wind of what he was doing but she was more worried that Dex would go down with his fake boss.

GH Recap: Valentin Is In Big Trouble

Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) came face to face in the elder Cassadine’s underground humanity-destroying bunker. Victor demanded to know who he was on the island with, but Valentin wasn’t saying. Liesl (Kathleen Gati) just wanted to know how Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) was and breathed a sigh of relief to know she was still alive. Victor assured his son that Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Trina (Tabyana Ali) were also still alive before he told a horrified Valentin of his plan to save the world by killing off 80% of humanity.

Victor went on to explain climate change to Valentin and pointed out that 80% of Earth’s problems are caused by man, and his pathogen would wipe out 80% of mankind. Valentin told Victor he would be his loyal son again if Victor just called off his crazy plan and hired sane scientists to save the planet without killing so many people. Victor didn’t want to hear of it and said he would never be foolish enough to trust Valentin again. So, Valentin then offered to be Victor’s test subject as long as he set his other hostages free. That was another no-go for Victor as he ordered his goons to drag Valentin away to be an unwilling guinea pig.

Liesl was tasked with injecting him with the pathogen but made one last plea to Victor, telling him this was his son. Victor said he wasn’t his son anymore, so Liesl gave Valentin the shot. Not long after, Valentin’s nose started bleeding.

General Hospital Recap: Curtis Finds Trina

Victor’s goons kept watch over Spencer and Trina on a docked Haunted Star, but Spencer did his best to break free by attacking the men. They didn’t take too kindly to that, so they tried to beat him. Suddenly, Curtis (Donnell Turner) appeared to stop them but was undercover as another goon. Spencer knew why Curtis was there and said he was just worried about Trina and mentioned where her room was. When a real goon became suspicious of fake goon Curtis, Spencer caused another distraction so Curtis could go find Trina.

Curtis made it to Trina’s room and knocked out the guard. Trina was relieved and thrilled to see Curtis appear. Trina apologized for getting into this mess and then told Curtis how hard it would be to find Spencer and Ace. Curtis wanted to get her off the boat first, but she refused to leave without Spencer. As the goons gave Spencer a good beating, Trina ran into the dining room and demanded they stop.

Back in Port Charles, Robert (Tristan Rogers) spent his time standing guard over a sleeping Scott (Kin Shriner) while he tried to reach Diane (Carolyn Hennesy). Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) then knocked on the hospital room door to see Anna (Finola Hughes), who had already made a beeline for Greenland with Holly. Robert tried to head Liz off at the pass, and she was suspicious as to why. She didn’t believe any of Robert’s excuses for why she couldn’t see Anna. Liz knew Robert wouldn’t try to stop her from seeing Anna for no good reason, and she agreed to give him a little bit of time before she entered the room.

On the other side of the door, Scott finally woke up and called the WSB. He apparently managed to get through quickly because an agent soon appeared and burst into Anna’s room, allowing Elizabeth to finally see why Robert was stalling her. After Scott started rambling about Victor destroying the world, Robert called Scott an idiot and told him he just managed to kill the woman he loved.

Finally, Portia (Brook Kerr) tried to keep herself distracted by work, but all she could think about was Trina. Marshall (Robert Gossett) soon popped in so they could worry about Trina together and was surprised to hear that Trina called, and Curtis went off to rescue his maybe-daughter.
