General Hospital recap for Wednesday, March 8, 2023. In today’s GH episode, Ashby’s surprised to see Anna and Valentin and makes a reveal, while Cam lashes out at his mother.
We also have Monday’s GH recap where Drew told Carly they should go public, Marshall and Portia cleared the air, and Willow talked to Nina about her condition and seemed to thaw toward her.
Cam lets himself into the house and finds Liz on the sofa. She assures him she’s not sleepwalking.
She waited up for him. He’s glad. He says he’s going to play soccer for Stanford. They embrace happily.
Liz is proud. She admits that she knew where Esme was for a while and that Nikolas held her hostage at Wyndemere.
Cam’s stunned into silence for a moment before he freaks out. Why didn’t she tell anyone?
She says they thought they were doing the right thing until Rory died.
She struggled and didn’t want to go to jail and leave those guys.
She reveals she got an immunity deal from the cops. She asks for forgiveness.
He’s not sure what to think and needs time alone to consider it. He loves her and is proud of her.
It must have taken a lot of guts to confess to the police. Liz cries as he calls her a good person. She feels lucky to have a son like him.
Laura visits Esme in General Hospital. She’s sullen and now knows the truth about Laura’s son and says none of you can be trusted.
She’s done listening to her lies. She just heard Nikolas held her prisoner. Laura’s sorry.
She only just learned that recently. She says she’s on the baby’s side since she’s his grandmother. Esme softens.
She couldn’t have gotten through Ace’s birth without Laura, who says she’ll ensure she’s treated fairly.
Esme asks why she cares. Laura has a good idea of what she might be feeling right now.
She was her age when she had her first baby and was frightened and trapped, surrounded by enemies.
Esme’s startled. Laura says she was separated from her son. Esme worries that’ll happen to her.
Laura says not necessarily. But she needs to ask herself if prison’s really a place for a baby.
Trina finds Spencer outside Esme’s room.
He flashes back to that hot kiss and they embrace.
She wanted to be there for him and gifts him a baby blanket for his brother.
He’s grateful but tells her that Esme says his father kept her prisoner at Wyndermere. Liz helped.
Trina’s shocked he believes it.
He also shares that Esme’s lawyer filed a petition and she wants to take the baby back with her to Spring Ridge.
Nearby, Curtis arrives as Portia asks Marshall if there’s hope for her and Curtis.
Marshall goes to check in and urges his son to talk to Portia.
He won’t so she begs him not to go.
Marshall leaves and Portia says Curtis hasn’t been home since the wedding.
He’s staying at Metro Court. She asks him to come home.
She’ll stay in the guest room. He’s not ready.
At Metro Court, Victor approaches Liesl who tells him to get lost.
He invites her to tell him off. She’s just trying to eat.
He reminds her she enjoyed the love of her children.
Valentin came into his life late and they barely had a relationship.
He was taken from him before he could fix the damage between them. It’s still hell.
Liesl understands. He wants to comfort each other.
He asks after Scott and learns she doesn’t know where he is and doesn’t care.
Vicor’s tickled. Was it his horrible clothing choices or abysmal table manners? She refuses to tell him anything.
He laughs, calling her feisty. She finally reveals Scott lied to her so Victor tries to hold her hand.
He thinks they can keep each other company. She pulls her hand away. He’ll never touch her again. “I’d rather be alone,” she says before stomping away.
