Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital had the character of Julian Jerome (William deVry) in a tailspin.
He is becoming quite clear, via the events that are unfolding in his life, on who is behind the car bomb meant for him that killed Morgan, and who was responsible for his young son, Leo being taken to GH in an emergency situation. As Julian is about to come clean with Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Billy Miller) at GH, and after Sam presents Julian with a photo of a young boy who she believes is him, the mobster says that everything that has happened has to do with family. As it turns out, Ned (Wally Kurth) saved Leo from taking aspirin when a bottle was left open and brought him to GH where Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) was beside herself.
Rudge meets the lady in red in their new location and reveals that a special message is being sent to Julian for not killing Jason. At the end of the episode, Julian back peddles on divulging the truth of who was behind the car bomb to JaSam and leaves hastily from GH. Later, Julian bursts through the front doors of the location Rudge and his boss are in. Out from the shadows and the desk, comes none other than Olivia Jerome (Tonja Walker) alive and well, where she says to brother Julian: “If you can’t make time for family, who can you make time for!”
Elsewhere, Naxie finally got married! Yes, there was a pesky interruption via Liesl (KathleenGati) at the ceremony. However, we did have Mac in tow (John J. York) walking Maxie down the aisle. When word came that Lucy Coe was delayed getting back to Port Charles, the nuptials came to a screeching halt. But with Spinelli in attendance (temp recast, Blake Berris) and Robin’s (Kimberly McCullough) good memory that Spinelli officiated Sam and Jason’s wedding, he could actually make their union valid. A skittish Spinelli doesn’t want to jinx anything for the happy couple, but reluctantly, and then happily agrees to officiate their ceremony. During their personal vows, fans of the couple were treated to a montage of the history of their relationship. In the end, Maxie and Nathan finally tied the knot. As the reception began, Spinelli looked wistful, surely a part of him was sad to see Maxie move on with Nathan, although he supports their union.
During the wedding, Anna (Finola Hughes) who is a guest as is Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), has a startling flashback where a man says to her “I waited so long for this!” She looks shocked as she inches closer and closer to her connection to Valentin.
