General Hospital recap for Friday, May 5, 2023. In today’s GH episode, Willow forces Nina to call off her vendetta against Carly, Anna risks her life to be with Valentin, and Obrecht is saved.

In the rocks of Greenland, Victor waves the pathogen in the air, threatening to release it if Holly shoots at him.

She enters the room and wakes him. He reminds her that she’s just been infected.
