General Hospital Recap Highlights
In this episode, Carly had questions for her kids and Dex after Sonny’s arrest while Sonny wasn’t even allowed out on bail. At Pentonville, Cyrus gave Drew the Sonny news. Finally, Austin tried to convince Nikolas to reveal his alive status to Ava, and Lucy and Maxie argued about their Deception mess. Now, let’s dig a little deeper into the details.
Who Turned Sonny In?
Carly (Laura Wright) wasn’t surprised when Michael (Chad Duell) informed her that Sonny had been arrested the night before. However, they seemed to be more worried about Dex (Evan Hofer) than they were about Sonny. Carly then wondered if Michael was the one who turned Sonny (Maurice Benard) in. He denied it and Carly believed him, but they still had to worry about what Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dex might have done.
Dex finally showed up so Michael immediately asked him if he kept a backup of the Pikeman recording on another flash drive. Dex insisted he did not and that he deleted the original. When a hungover Josslyn walked into the kitchen, all eyes were on her. As expected, she completely denied having anything to do with Sonny’s arrest.
Finally, Dex had to confess he took the broken flash drive after Carly stomped on it. That’s when all eyes turned to Dex as Carly and her crew were all ready to turn on one another the first chance they got. They were stunned and appalled that he tossed it into a public trash can. Michael and Carly were sure the feds were following Dex, recovered the flash drive, and managed to fix it because the U.S. government could apparently do anything.
Drew (Cameron Mathison) and Cyrus (Jeff Kober) had a chat in the Pentonville showers as Cyrus warned him that Sonny had been arrested and his protection might be gone. They later took the chat to the library to play a game of chess. Cyrus explained it was a way to see how each other’s minds worked.
Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) told Sam (Kelly Monaco) all about Sonny’s arrest and wondered if this was the arrest that would do his dad in. Sam couldn’t imagine such a thing but Dante pointed out that Sonny no longer has a Jason (Steve Burton) to save him. As Dante wondered if ratting out Sonny was an inside job, Sam seemed sure whoever tipped off the feds was one of Sonny’s enemies.
As for Sonny, he refused to answer any questions from the feds until his lawyer was present. Finally, Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) arrived to talk to the self-proclaimed coffee importer. She informed him he would not be getting out on bail so easily.
Deception All Around Port Charles
Mason (Nathanyael) popped by Ava’s (Maura West) gallery to taunt her over the fact that he had Nikolas’s (Adam Huss) body. He didn’t mention that the body is alive and well and living with Ava’s boyfriend Austin (Roger Howarth). Ava tried to get more information out of Mason but was ultimately unsuccessful. He promised to deliver Nikolas’s body soon but would not say when.
Austin arrived home just as Nikolas was getting back from his morning run. Nikolas was feeling good and grateful that Austin saved him but wasn’t ready for Ava to know he was alive. Austin did his best to remind Nikolas that Ava clocking him over the head with a gargoyle was an accident. Nikolas wasn’t buying it and just wondered why Austin seemed to have such an affection for his ex-wife.
Nikolas explained that he wasn’t ready to go back to his real life because his real life was complicated. Austin wondered if he feared getting arrested because he kept pregnant Esme (Avery Kristen Pohl) in a tower for months. Nikolas knew all about his new son Ace and couldn’t wait to meet him. But, he had some things to take care of first.
Lucy (Lynn Herring) remained a hot mess as she worried about losing Deception, but was completely against Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) idea of giving in to Tracy (Jane Elliot) and handing over 75% of Deception’s stock. She wasn’t about to lose her income after moving into a large new house with her kids. This didn’t help Lucy’s nerves, and she didn’t even have her gummies with her.
They tried to figure out why Tracy insisted that the Deceptor was her idea. Maxie even wondered if Tracy just coincidentally had the same idea as Lucy but that made no sense to Lucy. If Enchantment’s Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) were suing them, then maybe Lucy could buy a coincidence but she didn’t buy it with Tracy.
