Lucy is Found, Joss Threatens Cam, and Nikolas Asks Carolyn to Make Sure Esme Never Recovers Her Memories

General Hospital recap for Tuesday, January 24, 2023. In today’s GH episode, Laura encourages Liz to make amends with her mom, Maxie and Sam talk about the hook, and Anna and Valentin enter the catacombs.

We also have Monday’s GH recap where Cam confronted Joss for cheating on him, Nikolas brought Carolyn to town, and Esme agrees to let Sam go looking for her father.

Dex walks into Sonny’s penthouse and admits he hasn’t been able to stay away from Joss.

He explains that he interrupted the hook attacking Britt and Joss. Sonny wonders why he’s hearing about this a month after it happened.

Dex reminds him he’s had other things on his mind. He didn’t go to the police because he didn’t want his gun traced. Britt covered for them.

He explains that he took Joss back to his place. After flashing back to having sex with her, he glosses over that and claims she just stayed a few hours and then he took her home.

Sonny isn’t thrilled Carly already knows all this. Dex offers him his gun but Sonny tells him to keep it and get more practice in.

The boss orders him to look in his eyes and vow he’s told him everything.

Dex insists he has. They chat about the Willow situation and Sonny thanks him for looking out for Joss.

“You’re doing good. The sky is the limit for you,” Sonny tells him.

As soon as Dex is gone, Sonny calls someone to check on him.

In Joss’ dorm room, she asks Cam to keep her seeing Dex a secret. She’s afraid of what Sonny would do if he finds out.

Sobbing Joss says she would never hurt someone else for the sake of payback.

“Maybe you don’t know me as well as you think,” he says. He’s outraged that she’s been lying to him. He’s not doing a favor for her and her boyfriend.

He’s looking forward to the day when Dex cheats on her. Their friendship is dead and that’s on her.

She tells him to blame her, not Dex. Cam won’t keep Dex’s secrets for him.

Joss hates seeing him this hurt. She’s sorry since he’s a good guy, but she asks him for this favor.

He’s not sure he will ever be able to find it in his heart to forgive. “Then I’m going to have to tell Dex before this gets back to Sonny,” she threatens.

As he heads out, he says her secret is safe. He’s not about to post on the internet about her dating a mobster.

When she’s alone, she calls Dex and tells him she just lost her oldest friend. But she doesn’t think they are in trouble.

He says they are all good and he’s convinced Sonny nothing happened between them.

Sam joins Maxie at The Savoy. They miss Britt. Maxie has been planning her memorial. She’s released her party was a goodbye party.

Sam hopes it’s consolation that Britt died saving someone’s life. They talk about the hook investigation.

Maxie assumes that Mac has been chatting to her about it. She also assumes that Dante tells Sam stuff.

Sam admits they are working together and explains that she went to see Esme and is now searching for her nanny because she might have information on the hook attack.

When she mentions she and Dante are planning to go to London, Maxie squeals in excitement.

She admires the way she has moved on with a new man. Sam says it was easy. They fit really well together.

“That’s awesome and dangerous,” Maxie says. All that domesticity can get in the way of romance. In London, they will be alone together and can have some romance.

Sam hopes they get the chance. It will be their first trip together and she’s excited for that.
