GH Scoops/Spoilers

By Mandy

SOD 5/2/16

Jason Starts To Remember His Past - With Franco! The once-roiling Jason/Franco rivalry, which dates back to Jason’s pre-amnesia days and Franco’s pre-tumor removal ones, has been reduced to a mild mutual dislike - but all that may change when Jason has a significant memory flash about his horrid history with the erstwhile serial-killing artist. Needless to say, the memory is not a pleasant one. A very intense confrontation ensues, which Sam and Obrecht try to break up. Later, Sam fills in some blanks for Jason, providing a recap of their Franco-laden past. Franco realizes he could be in big trouble, so he decides to try to make Jason realize that things have changed. Which may be easier said than done - and may trigger unforeseen consequences.

Ratings for 3/28: 2.1

*Hot Plots Preview* Trouble For “Julexis”! Alexis and Julian are feeling confident about her odds of getting the case against her client, Carlos, dismissed - but trouble is brewing on multiple fronts. Things get complicated when a surprise witness to Duke’s shooting comes forward.

Julian and Nina make a connection on 4/25, while a surprise witness steps forward.

SOD 4/25/16

Anna And Paul Are Arrested! Two Port Charles law enforcers end up in handcuffs this week when Anna and Paul are both arrested for their various crimes, including her attempted murder of Carlos and his fatal shooting of Sloane. Paul is understandably aghast when Anna spells out the details of Sloane’s demise, among other incriminating tidbits, to Jordan. Though neither is innocent, Paul’s crime is more egregious and he has more to lose. Once they’re in their cells, Paul explains to Anna that he’s confident that he can strike a deal with Carlos that will end up implicating Julian, while the two of them go free. The duo’s close quarters also prompt Paul to open up to Anna about his feelings for her, which are genuine. Paul understands that at some point he may have to pay for what he has done, but at least in the short term, it pays to have friends in high places, including his college buddy, Mayor Lomax.

Ratings for 3/21: 2.1

Shari Belafonte appears on 4/19 as Mayor Janice Lomax, who has something to say about Paul’s arrest.

Jon Lindstrom returns this week as Kevin Collins.

*Hot Plots Preview* Ned And Olivia Meet Again! The nascent duo once known as “NOlivia” reunites this week for the first time since Ned returned to Port Charles. The duo split on a bittersweet note last year after Ned begged off of continuing to pretend to be Leo’s daddy - a subterfuge that quickly ended anyway, when Julian found out that he sired Olivia’s baby.

Julian comes up with a plan that involves Alexis’s help on 4/18, while Kristina opens up to Sam. Sonny levels Julian with a threat on 4/19, while Nina finds herself in a bad state. Sam has a nightmare that she can’t shake on 4/20, while Felix and Michael work together to find Sabrina and Laura learns the meaning of Helena’s message from beyond the grave. Ned wonders if Tracy really is a changed woman on 4/21, while Andre is brought in to give a psych evaluation of a prisoner and Sonny warns Alexis about where her association with Julian could lead.

What Will Happen: Scott has an unconventional idea about how best to represent Anna. Michael finds a clue about Sabrina’s whereabouts. Franco’s attempt to make amends with Nina goes very wrong.

SOD 4/18/16

Sonny and Anna Track Down Carlos! Sonny and Anna travel to Ecuador this week in pursuit of Duke’s killer, Carlos, leading to an epic showdown. Getting out of town initially proves difficult when Paul tries to block Anna’s departure. Once she gets away from Paul (and dispatches Andre, another inconvenient visitor), Anna and her unlikely ally board a plane. En route to Ecuador, Anna reveals to Sonny that she shot Carlos on the docks last May. By the time their plane touches down, both Sonny and Anna are chomping at the bit to get to the fugitive.

Ratings for 3/14: 2.1

John DeLuca debuts on 4/26 as Aaron.

Jeffrey Vincent Parise appears this week as Carlos Rivera.

*Hot Plots Preview* Will Nikolas Lose ELQ? Several parties are gunning for Nikolas’s shares of ELQ, starting with Hayden, who tells her husband that if he doesn’t part with his stock, she’ll turn him in to the cops for trying to shoot her in the head. Jason and Sam are also hip on Nikolas’s 2015 hit on Hayden, and Jason comes to Nikolas with an offer he may not be able to refuse: Sell ELQ to him or else.

Maxie breaks a promise on 4/11, while Hayden has reason to celebrate. Valerie rethinks her feelings for Curtis on 4/12, while Franco and Carly have a run-in. Jordan and Andre’s jobs cause tension between them on 4/13, while Ava is surprised by Kiki’s declaration. Jason fills in the Quartermaines about the state of ELQ on 4/14, while Laura’s search for answers about her inheritance from Helena leads her in a surprising direction.

What Will Happen: Paul and Jordan wonder about Anna’s fate. Julian spills his guts to Ava. Nina’s words of advice evoke an unexpected reaction out of Nathan.
