Finally, Sonny Corinthos [Maurice Benard] realizes that Carly Corinthos [Laura Wright] is missing and he tells Ric Lansing [Rick Hearst] and Lucas Jones [Ryan Carnes] that he’s worried about her. Sonny will feel powerless to help find her since he’s stuck in his wheelchair plus he’s got the custody battle to worry about that afternoon – but the afternoon will stretch over into Monday’s show.
Jake Doe [Billy Miller], thankfully, found Carly and she calls him Jason. Jake thinks Carly hit her head and is addled. He’ll tell Carly that her former BFF is dead and that she needs to finally let him go like Sam Morgan [Kelly Monaco] has done. Carly will clarify for Jake that she’s not loopy and has the proof that he’s really Jason. We noticed her car has been smoking – hope those DNA results don’t go up in flames.
Meanwhile, an angry and frustrated Ava Jerome [Maura West] has no faith in her lawyer Scotty Baldwin [Kin Shriner] for the upcoming custody case and goes to see Paul Hornsby [Richard Burgi] in desperation to plead for him to help her. Can Paul lean on the judge? Paul will offer Ava some tips to play dirty pool of her own and drive Sonny into a fit in court so he looks like a violent raging mob boss – which he is…
How will Ava set him off? Will she bring up murdering Connie Falconeri? Or maybe talk about bedding his son Morgan Corinthos [Bryan Craig]? Heaven knows Sonny has a short fuse and Ava has enough dirt to spill that she should be able to easily drive him into an apoplectic fit of anger just in time for the judge to see him raging and out of control. Good thing Sonny’s in that wheelchair and can’t choke her!
Anna Devane [Finola Hughes] will be introduced to her new shrink Dr Andre Maddox [Anthony Montgomery] by her former shrink Dr Kevin Collins [Jon Lindstrom]. Looks like the good Dr Collins is exiting stage left – at least for now – and sexy Dr Maddox will be offering counsel to the numerous and varied troubled people of Port Charles. Let’s hope he helps little Jake Spencer [James Nigbor] soon.
Also, Hayden Barnes [Rebecca Budig] will give Liz Webber [Rebecca Herbst] a good dressing down and will tell her she knows who Jake really is and about Liz’s lies. After petrifying Liz, Hayden will reveal to Patrick Drake [Jason Thompson] that her memories are coming back to her. Nikolas Cassadine [Tyler Christopher] will run Hayden off and reassure Liz that she’s going to get her happy ending.
Finally, there have been persistent ‘General Hospital’ rumors that Patrick and Sam have eloped but then, on Thursday, they talked about “setting a date.” Is this a red herring from the new writers to make us think those two are not married? Perhaps they really are but are setting a date for a reception or renewal of vows. We’ll find out soon enough but it looks like, either way, Sam will choose Jake…
Be sure to check back with Soap Opera Spy for more ‘General Hospital’ spoilers every day – the wedding action will carry over through to Monday and the real fallout from the ‘Jake is Jason’ reveal will begin next week.
