Yesterday’s episode of General Hospital offered, a thrill-a-minute behind every locked and buzzing door, at the compound that is the Crichton-Clark Clinic! It was action-packed and brought the promise of new romance, danger, a walking Jason, new secrets, and lots of bullets! It was as if an episode of Batman had come to the soaps!
Nathan (Ryan Paevey), our hero, and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) had their major first kiss cementing them as a couple to root for! He even taught his new girlfriend how to shoot a gun, after the duo seemingly rid the world of Peter Harrell, and Peter Harrell Jr. (Zachary Garred).
Moving over to Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) – way to go Lante! Didn’t you love the fight scenes with Lulu and the bitchy nurse and Stavros (Robert Kelker-Kelly) and Dante, where for once, Lulu and Dante came out victorious? Stavros looks to be finally “dead” on the ground after expounding, in his Shakespearing tones, his demented desire to have Lulu have his child via that embryo!
Meanwhile, Jason is on the loose! How do we know? That black t-shirt! Looking much smaller in girth than Steve Burton, this stand-in, unfrozen, brought-back-to-life Jason, who for now remains faceless (Billy Miller to fill in that face), seems to have the smarts and the “killer instincts” to attack, dismantle, and wander the facility! And who does he stumble upon? Robin (Kimberly McCullough)! Remember when we last saw her, we didn’t know where Victor (Thaao Penghlis) and his goons took her! Robin sees that it is Jason, who can’t talk yet (Billy Miller to fill in voice), and he shoots her handcuffs attached to the railing and frees her!
But back in Port Charles, the moment finally arrives after flirting and flirting! Patrick (Jason Thompson) plants a kiss on Sam (Kelly Monaco)! They start to make-out and Sam puts on the brakes. She does tell Patrick she has wanted to kiss him for awhile now, too. However, she isn’t sure where their lives are heading right now as it’s all so complicated, with Patrick’s divorce from Robin, and the anniversary of Jason’s death and his birthday coming up! The two seemingly put a pin it and hold for now on their romance, and have decided that they will go back to being sleuths trying to uncover the truth of who was responsible for running Patrick, Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) and Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) off the road that ultimately led to the death of baby Gabriel. Will they be able to fight their feelings?
Back at Crichton-Clark, the shocker came when none other than Liesl (Kathleen Gati) was holding at gunpoint Anna (Finola Hughes) with Victor standing there! As we have just learned, Victor is not the bio-dad of Nathan as all had thought! Liesl does not shoot her nemesis Anna, but instead shoots Victor! Anna is stunned. Liesl said she had to do it! When Anna goes to find the others, Liesl says her goodbyes to Victor, who is bleeding out on the floor, but he has a pulse! Next thing you know, Liesl admits if only two people have a secret, one must die, and she wants to snuff out Victor’s life with a pillow! She utters that Nathan can never know who his real father is! Which begs the question, than who the hell is Nathan’s real father? As Liesl goes to kill Victor, he pulls a device out of his suit jacket which sets off alarms throughout Crichton-Clark! Victor says if he is going to go, then everyone is going down with him!
In the final moment of the episode, Anna, while searching through the hallways of Crichton-Clark, uses a security card to open a door and on the other side of it is Robin trying to also get out of said room! Will mother and daughter finally comes face-to-face?
Kudos go must go in this episode to Thaao Penghlis who was riveting as Victor, the ringleader and villain in this story arc. The scenes where Victor is lying on the floor on his seemingly “last” breaths reminded us all what a fantastic actor he is!
