General Hospital recap for Thursday, May 25, 2023. In today’s GH episode, Sonny urges Carly to turn him in, TJ tells Stella his problems, and Curtis clarifies things with Portia.
We also have Wednesday’s GH recap where Carly realized she may have to take the fall, Molly snapped at TJ, and Jordan told Portia she was wrong about her.
Sonny arrives at Carly’s and Donna asks him to watch cartoons. He suggests she make the bed first.
After the kid skips off, Sonny tells his ex he has news. She already knows he’s getting married. “Your life,” she says, anxiously folding towels.
He wonders what has her so distracted. They talk about the SEC case against her. Even Diane will have a hard time defending her.
Sonny says they may have been pointed at her to get to him. There’s already been an attempt on his life so he suspects someone is threatening her to flip on him.
She understands that idea but is sure Ned turned her in. She adds that Diane has already suggested she could cut a deal with the Feds if she turns him in.
He tells her to do it but she refuses. Sonny can’t let the mother of his children go to prison. She says it will just be minimum security for a couple of year at worse. The other option is to turn on Drew.
She won’t consider that either. She reminds him she’s guilty. He points out that’s never mattered before.
Carly refuses to let someone else pay for her mistakes this time.
Donna returns, eager to make pancakes. Carly tells her they need to talk about some changes that are coming.
At the penthouse, Nina tells Ava it’s time for the gloves to come off. She can’t let Carly come between her and her family. She has to make sure she goes away for a long time.
Without Carly around, she has a clear path to happiness. Why does Carly get a storybook ending and leave everyone else with nothing?
It’s not like Carly isn’t guilty. Ava has no problem with Carly going to prison, but she worries that she’s blowing up her life.
Nina insists this isn’t about revenge but about maintaining her relationships. If the end result is her daughter turning to her rather than Carly, any ramifications are worth it.
She plans to exploit Drew and Carly having different legal teams to turn him against her. This seems like a longshot to Ava.
Nina says the only thing that matters is that Drew believes Carly would turn on him. She can think of someone who could plant that idea in his head.
At home, TJ calls Molly to leave another message apologizing and asking her to come home.
Stella drops by. She’s exactly who he needs to see. He explains that he and Molly have been trying to have a baby but it may not be possible.
She can see that’s breaking his heart. Sitting down, he explains they’ve been blind-sided. He feels like he keeps putting his foot in his mouth.
She tells him that Molly is likely in agony and it will take her a while to see he’s in this too. There’s nothing he can do but pray.
He feels like Molly is blaming herself. She’s sure she is. She’s mourning a dream and it’s hard for a woman to deal with this. He needs to be there and remind her he loves her.
They change the topic to Curtis. She still feels badly about everything that happened around the wedding. She’s sorry she ran off at the worst time.
He explains things may be thawing between Trina and Portia but the same can’t be said for Curtis. He still hasn’t moved back home.
It sounds to her like Curtis is on better terms with his ex wife than his current one.
He’s happy she’s back. She hopes his uncle feels the same way.
Molly (temporarily played by Holiday Mia Kriegel) arrives at Alexis’ in tears. She tells her mom and Sam that everything is falling apart.
Kristina joins them and her sister explains her endometriosis. They’re all sorry for her but she says there’s nothing to be done.
The pain is manageable but she may never be able to have a baby. Kristina is sure there are other options like surrogacy.
Alexis says this isn’t the time to discuss that. Kristina thinks her sister is a problem solver. Molly storms out, leaving her sister baffled.
Alexis goes after Molly and Kristina challenges Sam to tell her what she did wrong. Sam apologizes for raining on her parade earlier.
Sam tells her how hard fertility issues are to deal with. Molly shouldn’t be blaming herself but her body is betraying her and her reason is going out the window.
Kristina hates that she’s made Molly feel worse. She admires how resilient Sam is.
They agree to have Molly’s back like they always do.
On the porch, Alexis tells her daughter that her sister meant well. Molly is feeling overwhelmed in an unfamiliar way and hates it. She feels like a failure.
Molly knows this isn’t her fault but she doesn’t feel it. She’s screwed things up with TJ too by being too defensive.
Her mom knows this is raw and assures her they can figure this out. Molly says this is strange. A few months ago this wasn’t even something she knew she wanted.
Alexis can’t take her pain away but she can comfort her. Molly cries on her shoulder.
When they go back inside, Kristina apologizes. They tell her they will be there for whatever she needs.
They join hands and Molly tells them she’s grateful for the family she already has.
