On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, it looks like even more skullduggery was pulled by DA Paul Horsnby (Richard Burgi), who’s heinous acts are stockpiling up in short order!
It was time for Alexis Davis’ (Nancy Lee Grahn) testimony against her husband Julian Jerome (William deVry) to send him to prison for good for his crimes. While Alexis had been jittery, and had one glass of wine before she took the stand in the key to the case against the treacherous mob boss, something was clearly amiss. As question after question DA Horsnby posed to his witness seemed to confuse her, Alexis flashedback in a fog to key moments from: the wiretapping, to Julian dragging her to the pier to kill her, and his confession to murdering Carlos Rivera, and ordering the hit on Duke Lavery, etc.
While Alexis stammered through, the judge and others in the courtroom seemed to think Alexis was under the influence. When they took a short recess for Alexis to gather herself, Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) was beside herself thinking Alexis was deliberately trying to throw the trial to free her husband. Alexis doesn’t know what is happening to her. When she retakes the stand, Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) brings up the past when Alexis ran down a teenager and left him to die as well as stabbing Alcazar. Alexis continues to be dazed. Sam (Kelly Monaco) leaps up in the courtroom and declares that Julian did try to kill her mom. The judge calls for order and the lawyers finish their questioning with Paul leaving Alexis hanging by a thread. Alexis steps off the stands and collapses into Julian’s arms. Paul is smug! His plan seems to have worked! Let’s not forget that water in a styrofoam cup, Alexis was sipping out of before she took the stand! Obviously, something was in it. Paul had to make sure that Alexis’ testimony would go awry, so the trial would be thrown, and Ava (Maura West) could not turn Paul in as the hospital killer!
Meanwhile, as everyone learns of the death of Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) at the hospital, and after Michael (Chad Duell) finally says his last goodbyes to Sabrina, it is her bff’s Felix’s (Marc Anthony Samuel) turn to have a moment with her, before she is carted away for an autopsy. And in that moment, Marc Anthony Samuel broke many viewers hearts as Felix breaks down. The capper, the heartfelt Sabrina/Felix montage, which featured moments between the best friends as Felix thinks back to their friendship over the last four years.
So, what did you think of Alexis’ botched testimony? Will Julian go free? How will Paul be caught for his crimes? Did Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) statement about the cologne, or after shave of a guest in the Quartermaine that she smelled while being attacked be the key to Paul’s undoing? What did you think of Felix’s goodbye to his bestie, Sabrina? Weigh-in via the comment section below!
