General Hospital recap for Monday, December 19, 2022. In today’s GH episode, Joss and Carly have a heart-to-heart, Ava confides in Nina.

We also have Friday’s GH recap where Trina wept for Rory when he died, Laura wanted to know why Spencer is out of jail early, and Valentin and Anna got pretty frisky in a windmill.

Chase hits the heavyweight bag at the gym and BLQ interrupts, hoping he’ll listen to something she has to say.

He’s angry with her and puts a shirt on before telling her they’re done. He says the PCPD lost one of their own last night and he can’t be there for him. He blames her.

She knows shes’ made mistakes. She admits she wrote the letter to support his dreams but as usual, she was too selfish to give it to them sooner.

Chase admits he’s not giving up. She offers to help with the music since it’s already working. Chase says it was never about the money for him.

He wants to be a cop. He’ll do whatever it takes so he’s not tethered to her. “We don’t work.”

She reminds him of Blaze and asks him not to let her down. She says to record the single and use the royalties to pursue a career in law enforcement.

Nikolas finds Liz at the nurses’ hub at General Hospital to ask if she’s going to turn him over to the cops.

She calls him self-centered and drags him into the chapel.

He says they need to figure this thing out now that they know Esme isn’t the hook. They argue.

Nik says if she calls the authorities, Esme will be captured and have no use for their baby. Once the baby is born, he’d love to turn her over to the authorities.

He promises to keep her on Cassadine Island to keep others safe. She accuses him of emotional blackmail but thinks she’s in too deep.
