On Wednesday’s General Hospital, Laura (Genie Francis) is devastated about the disappearance of her son Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) and the ramifications of that, which include he could be dead. It was nice to see Genie Francis play the mama bear concerned for son and grandson. When Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel) arrives at Wyndemere, she has the difficult task of telling him what happened to his father. Spencer takes the news rather calmly, and wants to try to solve the mystery of where his dad could be, but he also acknowledges his dad could be dead. Hayden (Rebecca Budig) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) look on as they are all concerned of Spencer’s reaction. Laura believes he is in shock and denial. Spencer wants to go to see the police detectives and so Laura accompanies him.
Lulu (Emme Rylan) who has just told Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) she is ready to have another baby (since they still have the one frozen embryo left), while the two are discussing buying a house for the Falonceri family, receives a call from Laura, while Dante gets a call from the police station. They both learn the situation and developments of an MIA Nikolas.
Once alone at Wydemere, Elizabeth and Hayden have it out, with Liz telling Hayden she knows she murdered Nikolas and is trying to frame Jason. Hayden counters that Liz can’t get over Jason or Nikolas, as the two continue their bitchfight. Lulu and Dante come upon the scene and are told that Laura and Spencer are talking to the police so they should find them. When Spencer, Laura, Lulu and Dante return to Wyndemere, Spencer tells Hayden that if his father never comes back, she still has him, and then he hugs her.
Meanwhile at the PCPD, Jason (Billy Miller) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) arrives to be questioned by Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), but Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) shows up as Jason’s legal counsel. In the interrogation room, Jordan shows surveillance tape at Wyndemere of Nikolas coming home at 12:02am, followed by Jason at 12:28am, and then Sam arriving on the scene seven minutes later. Jordan believes Jason is the guilty party and had plenty of time to throw Nikolas through the window. She tells her prime suspect not to leave town because when the evidence turns up that points to him, he will be arrested. Alone, Jason tells Sam he’s leaving, after she confesses she’s worried he will face trial. Later, Elizabeth shows up at the police station with key information for Jordan about Hayden AKA Rachel and Nikolas.
Carly (Laura Wright) has learned from Bobbie that Lucas is in the hospital in stable condition, but has faced a harrowing situation. An upset Carly is heading to the hospital to find out more of what happened to Lucas, and more on his condition. As she decides to leave, Sonny (Maurice Benard) is about to tell him about the arrangement he made with Ava (Maura West) in regards to baby Avery, when unfortunately the doorbell interrupts him. Who should be there? Yup, a snarky Ava to pick-up her daughter. Carly is clearly shocked. Ava is rude to Carly and Sonny demands she apologize to his wife, or this is the last time she will take baby Avery out of his home. When Ava leaves with Avery, a very upset Carly asks Sonny why he went this route and let her take the baby. Sonny explains that he cut a deal with Ava, and a lot of that was influenced by what happened with Michael. Sonny explains: “We cut AJ out of Michael’s life for good. Then he was believed dead. Then he returned. Then he worked on Michael, made himself look like the victim, rewrote history, made us look like the bad guys, and him like a saint. Michael didn’t know any better, because Michael didn’t know AJ. He was vulnerable to his lies.” Sonny doesn’t want his daughter falling victim to Ava’s lies and thus turning on them, like Michael did. An emotional Carly says she knows Sonny is right. These scenes offered nicely played moments by Laura Wright.
Ava brings baby Avery to see Kiki (Hayley Erin) at the Metro Court, who has been hanging out with Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) while she was on a break from her shift. Kiki takes Avery into the kitchen to get something to eat, which gives Ava a moment to slyly thank Dillon for helping Kiki get over Morgan.
What do you think about Spencer’s reaction to his father’s disappearance and possible murder? Who do you think will turn out to be the culprit in Nikolas’ going through the window at Wyndemere? Will Dante and Lulu’s attempt at having a second child go south? What did you think of Sonny’s account of his past with Carly and AJ, and how it affected Michael, thus he doesn’t want the same fate for Avery? Are you digging Dillon and Kiki as a love match?
