General Hospital Update Wednesday 4/21/99 by Suzanne Lanoue
Jason tells Emily about Lucky. She breaks down crying in his arms and won't go for awhile.
She insists on details but he doesn't have too many. She asks about Liz and wants to see
her, but he suggests she wait. She talks about what good friends they were, and how Lucky
helped her laugh after mom died. Jason wishes he could have protected him, but she tells
him not to blame himself. Carly comes in and asks "what happened" so he fills
her in. Carly is shocked and upset. She expresses sympathy to Emily and wonders why Jason
blames himself. Carly wishes she had gotten to know her cousin better. She leaves them
alone and Emily wonders if Carly was sincere. Em keeps going on about Lucky and wonders,
"Is it worth it all?" Jason invites her to stay with him. She's rather be alone
but thanks him. He leaves.
Carly asks Reginald where AJ is but is told he left early for work. She phones Taggert's
office but Jason hangs up the phone. She tells him AJ set that fire and she picks up the
phone. They struggle and he reminds her about their talk, that she has to be calm. He
tells her that AJ will pay if he did it, but they need to get proof. She reluctantly
agrees. Jason says AJ didn't intend to kill Lucky, so when he finds out, "he'll
panic" and they'll catch him. Jason doesn't trust cops, he says. Carly asks about
Bobbie and wants to call her--and AJ, so she can start to prove he killed Lucky. AJ rushes
home and Carly tells him about Lucky and the fire. Aj says that's terrible and gives her
sympathy, but she won't let him hug her. She blames Jason for AJ's sake, because this is
the second fire. AJ goes to call his lawyer. Carly opens his briefcase to search for proof
but he comes back in the room and catches her.
Liz goes into her room and sees all the momentos of Lucky. She has a flashback to the last
time she saw him and fingers the ring he gave her. Nikolas arrives; she says she is about
to take a bath but lets him in. He has Lucky's shirt that he had left when they went
rollerskating. She talks about Lulu learning to skate for a minute. She thanks Nikolas and
reminds when Lucky bought the shirt. Nikolas holds her close and she cries into him and
the shirt. She talks about her plans for the future and how they're gone now. Nikolas
tries to comfort her. She lists all the reasons she loved Lucky and says she can't live
without him. Nikolas tells her what Laura told Lulu and how Lucky is in heaven.
"Lucky will forever be with you--right here" he says, touching his heart. she
rehashes their past w/Sarah, the rape, and how they fell in love. Nikolas regrets that he
never told Lucky he loved him. She says the important thing is to remember how they loved
him and he loved them. She asks him to stay while she takes a bath. He stays and
afterwards suggests she get some sleep. She asks him to stay so he agrees. he tucks her in
and she falls asleep with the shirt.
Jax calls for help on the radio but gets nothing. Alexis is negative as usual. He
compliments her to raise her spirits. His pep talk works so she offers to help and calls
for "mayday" herself. Ned, V., and Jerry search for Jax and Alexis in the
helicopter. They hear Alexis on the radio and talk to her and then Jax. Jax gives them the
coordinates but the radio gives out. Jax keeps trying but it's very dead. They cuddle for
warmth. To keep Alexis' mind off their plight, he asks her to talk about where she'd
rather be. They end up joking around and laughing hysterically. Just then, Ned rushes in
with his flashlight. He stops, stunned to see them laughing.
Luke takes a gun out of his drawer. Sonny walks in and looks concerned. Sonny asks if he's
going after Moreno, but Luke replies, "What makes you think I'm not looking for
you...partner?" Sonny talks to him, says if he wants to kill him, it's okay, but
don't do it now because he'll go to jail and his life will be ruined. Luke puts the gun
down and says he doesn't want to kill him, he wants him to live with what he might have
done. Sonny asks about Moreno again so Luke blames Sonny for not taking care of Moreno.
Sonny vows that if Moreno did it, he'll pay. Luke has no doubts it was Moreno.
