General Hospital Recaps
GH Week of May 31, 2010
Happy Memorial Day! Today's episode was a repeat.
Per Brook's request, Lulu asked Carly to hire the songbird to perform at
Metro Court. Carly initially gave Lulu a hard time, but told her cousin to
have Brook give her a call.
Dante enjoyed having Brook over to fix him a homemade meal. "Damn, you make
me miss home," Dante smiled. "Good having you here, Brook." Dante then
opened up about Lulu's troubles with Carly.
Olivia warned Sonny that she'd turn him into the cops before she'd let him
kill Johnny. Claire wandered in and asked if Olivia would like to file a
complaint. Olivia played it cool, then left. Claire told Sonny that he was
delusional if he thought that she'd turn a blind eye to the brewing mob war.
At Pentonville, after being denied a conjugal visit, Sam asked Jason if he
wanted to get married. Jason replied that he would do whatever she wanted.
Sam thought the better of it, but was pleased that Jason was favorable to
the idea. She added that she was worried about Spinelli in Jason's absence.
Just as they kissed, a guard arrived and ended their visit. In his cell,
Michael got a letter from Morgan that made him smile. Jason returned, and
Michael reminded Jason that he's no longer a boy and that he's taking
responsibility for his own actions. Jason gave Michael another lesson in
self defense, and was pleased that Michael showed improvement.
Maxie pounded on the penthouse door in search of Spinelli. She burst into
the place to find the room dark and Spinelli glued to his laptop. Maxie
asked Spinelli to accompany him on a business trip to New York. He claimed
he wasn't interested. Maxie said if he didn't go, she'd be forced to take
someone else. "Is that a threat?" he asked. Later at G.H., Maxie arrived to
hear Matt give Maya a pep talk. After seeing her, Matt poured on the charm
with Maya. The effort wasn't lost on Maya, who said she wasn't working at
G.H. to make his girlfriend jealous. Maxie and Matt were both quick to point
out that they weren't dating.
Lulu came home to find Dante and Brook dining. Lulu joined them and broke
the news to Brook about the singing gig. Brook was thrilled. Lulu was
impressed with the meal, then shared a kiss with Dante as Brook looked on.
After the meal, Lulu and Dante got flirty and Brook bid them a good night.
Kate showed up at Jake's in need of a martini and complaining of her
underlings at work. Coleman gave her a few kisses to de-stress, which seemed
to do the trick. At a table, Diane joined Max, who was still feeling guilty
for Michael going to jail. Max confided in Diane that Michael asked Max to
get him a hooker for his 18th birthday. Max declined, but with Michael now
in jail without having ever known the pleasure of a woman's company, Max
felt like he let the boy down. Diane was not pleased to hear Max state that
he planned to remain chaste until Michael was released.
Carly arrived at the penthouse and told Spinelli about her visit with Jason.
She was grateful that Michael had Jason to protect him. Carly then went to
Sonny's and seeing Claire, asked her to leave. After Ms. Walsh left, Carly
told Sonny that if sleeping with Claire would get Michael out of jail
quicker, she advised him to go for it.
Leaving the hospital, Maya caught Lucky slugging a wall. He was still angry
with Nikolas, Lucky noted. Maya checked out his swollen hand and shoved it
into her cold drink. Lucky invited Maya over to listen to some music.
Back at Jake's, Olivia sat with Johnny and told him to get his act together.
"I'm not going to watch you get yourself killed," she huffed on her way out.
Meanwhile, Maxie and Matt arrived to blow off some steam and later shared a
kiss.... Brook Lynn entered and joined Johnny.... At the loft, Dante and
Lulu had sex.
Patrick wanted to take Robin out to lunch but she said she had an
appointment with the World AIDS Crisis Center. Patrick groused that he doesn't get any time with his wife anymore and stormed out. He went to the hospital, where his bad mood was evident to Matt. Patrick was surprised to hear that his bro agreed to help Maxie make Spinelli jealous. Meanwhile, Maxie admitted to Robin that she can't stop thinking about Matt. Robin told her cousin to focus on Spinelli and stay away from Matt. She then mentioned her renewed interest in AIDS work and Patrick's frustration with it. Maxie said maybe she should pay more attention to her husband.
At G.H., Elizabeth walked in to find Shirley trying to sell her jewelry to Nikolas. Elizabeth accused him of trying to make inroads with her friend, but he told Liz to get over herself. He bought a necklace and left, and Shirley couldn't understand why Elizabeth chased such a hunk away. Liz was not pleased with the interference and walked out. Later, Shirley apologized to Liz for butting into her affairs and had some wise words about forgiveness. Liz apologized to Nik, who was grateful.
Sonny told Diane that he had a plan to get Johnny out of the way. She advised him to leave Johnny alone, but Sonny vowed that Zacchara would pay for lying on the witness stand. Sonny said he made a deal with Claire Walsh about a shipment coming in and he'll arrange to have Johnny take the fall. Diane wasn't excited about the plan and advised Sonny to just seduce Claire. He insisted that he wasn't interested in Claire, but admitted he would do anything to get Michael out of prison.
Claire wanted Johnny to help her nail Sonny, but he ranted about not getting any justice for his sister's death. She arrived at Casa de
Corinthos, where Claire and Sonny debated about whether Claudia got justice. Sonny called his dead wife "a hateful woman," and asked Claire if she believed he has ever hit a woman. "I defer," she stated, "But prefer to think you're innocent."
At the lake house, Kristina was shocked to find Kiefer standing over her bed. "You're not here," she chanted to herself and as he angrily swung at her, she woke up from her nightmare. Molly came in to check on her sister. Kristina mentioned her fears that Sonny had been abusive to women. Molly checked online, but came up empty. Kristina then called Johnny and asked him for the truth about Sonny's relationship with Claudia.
Diane asked Alexis how Kristina was doing with her therapy. Alexis stated that it was going to be a slow, arduous process. Diane pointed out that Kristina was frightened by Sonny's behavior towards women. Alexis insisted that Sonny needed to deal with this matter to help Kristina get past her issues. "I hate my life," she muttered. Alexis asked Sonny to participate in Kristina's therapy. Sonny agreed, but Alexis warned him not to lose his temper or he'd scare their daughter. Sonny rebuffed the remark and said maybe he shouldn't participate.
Trapped at Helena's compound, Tracy's condition worsened. Luke screamed furiously for help, to no avail. Luke was frustrated that he couldn't break them out of their cell and told Tracy she could drop the act. "You live for this crap, don't you," Tracy sighed. Luke realized that Tracy really was ill.
Back at G.H., Patrick made a snide remark to Lisa and Steven, then Robin called. He apologized for their fight earlier. She asked if they could talk. He came home with Thai food for lunch. Robin broke the news that she was helping open a clinic in South Africa for three weeks. Patrick was angry that she accepted without speaking to him first.
At G.H., Elizabeth and Nikolas agreed to co-parent their baby, but Liz insisted that he doesn't crowd her. Nik pointed out that there was no way to avoid his wealth, and he was not going to deny his own child. After Nik left, Cameron asked his mother if he could attend an expensive summer camp. Liz said no, and Cam got upset. Later, Steven mentioned to Lisa that he knew someone working on an experimental procedure who was looking for investors, as a cash-strapped Liz overheard.
At Crimson, Maxie warned Lulu about Brook Lynn, just as Dante walked in. "Brook is trouble, and coming from me, that says something," Maxie told them.
In the Metro Court lobby, Edward approached Brook Lynn with a hug, and an invitation to return to live in the mansion. Carly told Edward that she gave Brook a job and a room at the hotel. Brook asked Edward for a loan, which he granted — if she moved in and went back to school. Carly told Brook to go for it. Brook thought about it and told Edward that she'd like to make it on her own. Edward said he understood, and that she will always have her family. Then, Dante showed up and mentioned the great meal Brook made for him. Dante told Carly that he was going to visit Michael. She held her tongue until he left, then ordered Brook to get in Olivia's good graces. Brook met with Olivia and said she wanted to surprise Lulu and Dante with dinner. Olivia offered to help, which made Carly smile.
In the prison yard, Jason trained Michael in self defense, but Michael lost his concentration when Carter walked by. Jason noticed that Carter had an effect on Michael, making him nervous and jumpy. Jason asked Michael if Carter was the guy who beat him up. Michael dodged the question. The guard then told Michael that he had a visitor, but Jason interceded and said, "I have a request." Jason showed up to meet with Dante instead.
At the lake house, Kristina asked Johnny if he lied about Sonny hitting Claudia. Johnny admitted he never actually saw him attack her, but he did manhandle her and used his words like fists. Johnny stated that people don't hit the ones they love. Alexis entered and asked what Johnny was doing there. Krissy said she invited him. Alexis asked to speak to him alone. Johnny made no apologies for what he said.
In Helena's dungeon, Luke screamed for help, as Tracy's condition worsened. Tracy began to hallucinate, and had a vision of her in jail for tax evasion and Luke living high on the hog. Then, Luke said he hired her an attorney, who turned out to be Alexis. Alexis sashayed in, and she and Luke engaged in a passionate embrace. Tracy screamed and woke up, and shouted at Luke that he has cheated on her for the last time. Now awake, they fondly reminisced about how they always one-upped each other. Then, Tracy threw water in Luke's face.
Olivia and Brook arrived at Dante's loft, and they had some girl talk. Olivia was pleased that her son had such a good friend. Lulu surprised them by coming home early, and felt a little inadequate in the kitchen.... Back at Metro Court, Spinelli told Carly that he needed to keep Maxie at a distance, as she'd tell Lulu if she knew of Carly's plan.
At their home, Patrick was furious that Robin didn't talk with him first about going to Africa. Patrick accused his wife of shutting him out of her life. Robin made no apologies, and Patrick countered by saying she's walking out on Emma. Robin said that wasn't true, and stated that he's just jealous of her connection with Stone. The claim agitated Patrick, and Robin walked out. Later, Robin returned and Patrick said he was going to join her in Africa. Robin was touched, but told Patrick that she pulled out of the trip. Patrick insisted that she go, and he'd accompany her the next time.
At Pentonville, Jason ordered Dante to stay away from Michael. Jason
returned to his cell and they had a discussion about fathers and sons.
Michael said he was jealous of the way Sonny treated Dante.
At the loft, Lulu wished she could be more helpful in the kitchen like Brook
Lynn. It made matters worse when Lulu bought flowers that Dante was allergic
to. Then, Lulu smiled through her teeth as she listened to Olivia's stories
from the old days about Dante and Brook. Later, Olivia reassured Lulu that
Dante loved her, and Liv was thrilled about their relationship. After Olivia
left, Dante was thrilled when he arrived home and smelled the meal. Brook
was ready to leave but Dante insisted she stay. After dinner, Dante and Lulu
praised the meal. Then, Dante and Brook recalled a story from their teens
where someone thought they were having sex. Lulu was not amused.
At the Haunted Star, Lucky warned Ethan about going after Sonny with Johnny.
Then, Lucky stated that he was concerned about Luke's absence. Maya arrived
and mentioned Tracy's gone missing, too. Lucky said, "This has Helena's
fingerprints all over it." Maya thought Lucky was blaming the Cassadines
because of his beef with Nikolas. Just then, Lucky got a text from "Luke"
saying they took a trip, but Lucky wasn't buying it.
At the lake house, Sonny arrived for his therapy appointment and Alexis
warned him not to get angry during the session. During their session, Sonny
was irritated that Kristina believed Johnny over him. Kristina told her
father he's got a bad temper and that she stayed with Kiefer because it
seemed familiar. Sonny accused the therapist of brainwashing Kristina and
walked out. Kristina hesitantly went with him. Sonny took Kristina home and
said he'd call her the next day. Kristina then made a call asking to see
someone. Ethan arrived and Krissy opened up about her appointment. She added
that liking a good guy like Ethan was a positive step for her.
At Metro Court, Carly remained devoted to making Dante pay for what he did
to Michael. She discussed with Spinelli framing Dante for laundering money.
Olivia walked by and heard Spinelli mention "The Deceitful One" and asked
who they were talking about. Carly lied and said that she no longer blamed
Dante for Michael's dilemma. Carly took responsibility for what happened and
Olivia walked away. Spinelli noted that Carly was an impressive liar. Carly
replied, "It's a gift."
Still trapped in Helena's dungeon, Tracy's condition worsened. Luke promised
to take his ailing wife on a trip to the Amalfi Coast when they got out of
captivity. A guard said that he notified Helena of Tracy's illness, and
reported that Helena was on her way.
At G.H., Elizabeth asked Steven about the medical investment opportunity.
Steven said he invested in it, but Liz was crestfallen to learn she'd need
to put up $100,000.
Spinelli visited Jason in prison. Jason was concerned about him ‹ and was
worried that Carly dragged him into one of her schemes. During their visit,
Carter visited Michael in his cell.
Sonny stopped by Carly's and asked her if he was abusive. Carly said Sonny
shouldn't ask questions that he doesn't want the answers to.
