Friday’s episode of General Hospital was filled with guest stars, touching moments, a welcome return, the debut of Kirsten Storms (Maxie) and Brandon Barash’s (Johnny) daughter, Harper Rose Barash, in the role of little Georgie, couples coming together for Valentine’s Day, and a shocker at the end of the hour for one of the residents of Port Charles.
Baby Daddy’s Melissa Peterman arrives in Port Charles in a fun turn as Mel, a long time childhood friend of Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero). While the two reminisce, it’s evident to Mel that Olivia has got it bad for Ned Ashton (Wally Kurth) as Liv thinks she is nursing the flu. Ned is preparing Valentine’s Day dinner at the Q’s for Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) with the famous chef JL, who later turns out to be Mel’s son! When Alexis arrives, all hell breaks loose between the duo, when Ned questions her about being by Julian’s (William deVry) side at the hospital. Alexis leaves after having Gazpacho soup spilled all over her in her haste to get away from Ned.
Meanwhile, in very touching scenes between Ryan Carnes (Lucas) and William deVry, Lucas explains that he was afraid to give Brad (Parry Shen) an answer, when Brad told Lucas he loves him and wants him to move in with him. Julian says if he is scared it must be love, and urges Lucas to follow his heart, before he loses Brad. After Brad complains to odd-man-out Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) about Lucas, and wishes Britt was around to give him advice, Lucas shows up! And in a grand gesture, Lucas jumps on to the nurses station counter, and in front of hospital staff admits to Brad that he loves him, and would love to move in with him. Brad and Lucas share a major liplock! Meanwhile, Julian gets a visit from Alexis who tells him that this is where she wants to be … with him!
Maxie is at home when Spinelli (Braford Anderson) arrives with Georgie. She relates to Spinelli that Nathan (Ryan Paevey) is upset with her for aiding and abetting Johnny in his escape, which has temporarily caused a rift in Naxie’s relationship on Valentine’s Day. Back at the PCPD, Nathan is confronted by Assistant D.A. Natalie (visiting guest star Cristela Alonzo) on what happened between Johnny and his girlfriend. Nathan, to save Maxie, claims Johnny broke into Maxie’s apartment and stole her car. Natalia then questions Nathan as to why he isn’t with Maxie tonight. When he explains they had a fight, she encourages him to patch things up with his lady love. Meanwhile, Spinelli comes clean with Maxie. Ellie broke up with him … over Maxie!
Elsewhere, Patrick (Jason Thompson) is called away to surgery and can’t begin his Valentine’s Day dinner with Sam (Kelly Monaco), quite yet. Sam is taken to the Metro Court by Baby Daddy guest star Derek Theler, who plays a plastics doctor Derek, whose date is also delayed. The two chat and Sam encourages him to go to his date and surprise her! Patrick eventually makes it to his date with Sam!
After Mel shows up at the Q’s and confronts Ned about how he is treating her girl, Olivia, Ned gets a clue! He heads over to the Metro Court to see Olivia. Meanwhile, Olivia is on the phone with the doctor about her flu symptoms where the doctor informs Liv she is pregnant!
