Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital certainly had a lot going on. First, let’s start with wonderfully acted scenes between Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) and Ashley Jones (Parker), as two strong women who from the first looks of it, are about to take it each other down, but in the end find some resolution and understanding. For Alexis, she gets clued in and learns how she can handle the situation with her daughter’s sexual identify better than she has.
At a cafe’ near the university in which Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) was suspended, Parker tells Alexis that she only wanted to be a friend to Kristina, and that Kristina’s version of the situation might be skewed. She also tells Alexis that Kristina fears being gay will alienate Alexis and Sonny (Marice Benard). Alexis explains that her husband Julian (William deVry) has a gay son, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) and they came to an understanding and ultimately Julian’s acceptance. Parker asks Alexis to just to make sure that matter what Kristina decides about herself and her sexuality, that Alexis will love her unconditially. Alexis thanks Parker for enlighting her, and for putting up with her accusations. Kristina calls Parker after Alexis leaves, and Parker informs her that her mother came to see her. Kristina looks panicked.
Elsewhere, it’s a very bad day for Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher)! He returns to Wyndemere where he finds Curtis (Donnell Turner) moving in! Hayden (Rebecca Budig) reminds Nikolas that she is calling all the shots now, and Curtis lets Nikolas know he has safeguarded the evidence that Shawn Butler (Sean Blakemore) is innocent, and that all roads lead to Nikolas having Hayden shot. Curtis tells the dark prince has no problem having the investigation of the case re-opened if he doesn’t comply to what he and Hayden say.
And as that is going down, Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Billy Miller) discuss the fact that she cannot believe that Nikolas would have Hayden shot to keep the secret from her that “Jake” was really Jason! A livid Sam takes off and heads to Wydemere where she rips into Nikolas, and tells him she is going to call the cops on him! As Nikolas tries to take the phone out of Sam’s hands, Jason busts through the door and beats up Nikolas! Hayden and Curtis also come upon the intense confrontation.
Later alone, an emotional Sam tells Jason that since Nikolas already stole a year from them she doesn’t want to lose anymore time with him. The du0 make love for the first time since Jason returned to Port Charles! Meanwhile, Hayden and Nikolas get into bed together post-Nikolas beat down, and each grab a knife out of their nightstands and put it by their side of the bed.
And last but not least, Ava (Maura) gets a bloody surprise in her bed when she finds what appears to be bloodied blackbird under the sheets! Is Sonny responsible for this threat as it appears … or could it be Paul (Richard Burgi), Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), or someone else?
