We also have Wednesday’s GH recap where Maxie asked Cody for a favor, Sasha kept her eyes on Gladys, and Portia urged Marshall to contact his original medical team.

Eileen is brought to the safe house by Anna and Valentin.

Valentin opens the box holding the Ice Princess and Eileen tries to touch it.

Valentin smacks it closed on her and they say she’s going to set up an appointment with Victor. She vows not to betray them.

They’re giving Victor what he wants. “Or so he thinks,” clarifies Anna.

She’ll meet him today so he has no chance to have the necklace appraised.

alentin also wants to wire her. “Are you insane?”

She asks, knowing she’s dead if Victor figures it out.

At Laura’s, she asks Spencer to ensure Esme feels welcome.

Esme will not stay in a place where she feels unwanted. Victor arrives.

He’s come for his nephews. Laura looks concerned and tells him to leave.

She threatens to call security but Spencer takes his uncle outside and asks him to back off.

Victor refuses to back down no matter who gets in his way.

They both hate the name Ace and talk about both of them wanting Esme behind bars.

Spencer wants custody and says he won’t keep Victor from the boy.

He needs his uncle’s help but they can’t talk about it here. Inside, Laura offers Esme coffee.

She’s concerned about breastfeeding but it’s fine in moderation, Laura says.

Laura calls her protected. “Even from Spencer?” She asks.

Spencer arrives and apologizes for the intrusion. He talks to the baby and goes to pick up Trina for Cam’s party.

Esme asks about Cameron and is glad she didn’t ruin his whole night. Laura says she caused damage.

She says, “Yeah damage. I can never forget.” She’s hurt people and isn’t absolved.

Laura’s letting her stay there so her grandson is safe and cared for and she knows the pain of the separation of her child.

Spencer has good reasons to distrust Esme. Laura knows being a new mom can change someone but she believes in redemption.

laura wants what's best for esme

Laura is trying to believe in Esme and asks if Esme believes in her.

Esme’s not sure who to trust and wonders why anyone would trust her. Laura’s willing to take the first leap of faith.

She lets Esme stay home alone to bond with Ace while she goes out. Esme’s shocked she trusts her but Laura says she’s no prisoner.

She hands her money in case of emergency.

laura leaves esme alone

Esme says she could take the money and run but Laura thinks she’ll stay, knowing it’s best for Ace if she does.

She goes and Esme plays with Ace and vows not to let them part her from her son. She stares at the money.

At home, Trina is stopped by Marshall who asks why she’s sneaking around.

She’s not sure if this is her home.

Doesn’t feel like it. She half expected to find a tumbleweed.

Marshall laughs.

He says Epiphany is out of town. She got accepted to a load of medical schools out of state. John Hopkins is the first one.

They’re happy for her. It only takes 9.5 hours, Marshall mopes.

He could do it but everything there is what bothers him.

He doesn’t know where he fits in.

Trina snuggles him and gets it.

marshall talks about spencer

She brings up Spencer living with his ex-girlfriend again. Trina doesn’t trust the woman.

Marshall thinks she should be in prison. He’s shocked it was her idea to get the DA to stop pursuing the case at least for now.

Marshall asks what the heck possessed her. She knows.

She’s having second thoughts.

They discuss Spencer’s life being complicated and Marshall asks why she needs his friendship.

trina talks to marshall

She sighs and talks about her jealousy and then family and what determines that. It’s not DNA but connection, Marshall says, holding her hands. She can come to him to discuss anything, anytime.

Even Spencer, though he thinks she should stay away from him.

Spencer arrives and they stare at him.
