Carly And Jason Reunite!
Carly has had a rough entry
into life at Ferncliff, but finds comfort in the form of a familiar face: Jason,
who has gotten himself hired as a janitor to keep an eye on his bestie. Carly is
grateful to have therapist Kevin on her side. When Jason reveals himself to her,
Carly’s head is spinning. However, Jason’s cover is nearly blown when Kevin
spies him with Carly.

The Verdict Is In For Carly!
When testimony in
Carly’s trial wraps up and her fate stands to be determined by a judge, the mood
in the courtroom is anything but jubilant for the defendant and her husband,
Sonny. The judge doesn’t take long to deliberate, and Carly, Jason, Sonny,
Michael and the “victim”, Nelle, are present when he renders his verdict: Guilty
by reason of insanity. Sonny and Carly are relieved that her strategy worked.
But the celebration is short-lived, as DA Margaux makes a strong case for why
Carly should not be sent to Shadybrook, but rather a state facility for the
criminally insane. Carly is dragged off to Ferncliff, leaving her loved ones
shocked and horrified. When Mrs. Corinthos arrives at her new state-mandated
home, she realizes she won’t find friends at Ferncliff and possibly already made
an imposing foe. Ferncliff has tightened security, so it won’t be as lax for
Carly as it has been for some previous inmates. Which puts the onus on Jason,
Michael and Sonny, who each resolves to find a way to get Carly out of Ferncliff
Dante pays Sonny a visit.

Peter Is Kidnapped!
Peter escaped from the PCPD only
to be assailed and taken hostage by an unknown someone - and his travails end up
making trouble for Nina, as well. Nina finds herself in a dangerous and shocking
situation, when she is summoned by text to the cabin where Peter’s kidnapper is
stashing him. The identity of the kidnapper will be revealed quickly. The
kidnapper also has plans for Nina, who will be forced into a co-conspirator role
in Peter’s kidnapping. Nina ducks out of the cabin to deal with another pressing
matter: Her divorce from Valentin. While seeking legal representation, she also
pokes around to find out what the consequences might be for not coming forward
with Peter’s location. The answer gives her some pause because she might have
already stepped into something. Meanwhile, Peter’s absence from his jail cell
becomes an urgent matter for a variety of Port Charles citizens.

Spinelli helps Michael.
Nina is done.

Carly Pleads Not Guilty!
Though Carly did not
intentionally push Nelle down the stairs at the epically disastrous baby shower
at the Quartermaine mansion, her attorney, Diane, convinces her that her best
chance at freedom is to enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.
Believing herself to be very much in her right mind, it’s a hard sell on Carly,
but she ultimately acquiesces to Diane’s counsel. Carly expects, as a result of
her plea, to be sent to a mental institution rather than prison. While Sonny
supports his wife’s decision, he’s also anguished by it. But when Carly’s
arraignment arrives, their plan may not bear the fruit she, Diane and Sonny were
expecting, as Diane faces off with a tough adversary: Port Charles’s newest

Despite his major misgivings, Andre prepares to move
ahead with the high-risk request Drew has made: to strip him of Jason’s memories
in hopes that he will recover his missing life experiences as Drew Cain. Since
Andre doesn’t have the flash drive containing Drew’s memory map (because Peter
swiped it), he doesn’t know if it will work. When Franco gets wind of what
they’re discussing, he advises Drew to rethink his eagerness to put his life in
Franco isn’t entirely supportive on 5/29, while Peter

Peter has a card up his sleeve
that could grant him freedom, but fate - or certain individuals - may thwart
that plan in an unexpected way. Maxie has come to grips with her feelings about
Peter, who befriended her and betrayed her. Anna is torn between trying to
reconcile herself with Peter’s actions and making peace with Robin, who has
questions about Anna’s early behavior. Valentin desperately tries to smooth the
waters with Nina, but may need some other intervention to successfully win her
