General Hospital recap for Monday, January 30, 2023. In today’s GH episode, Valentin is reunited with Charlotte, Willow is prepared for her C-section, and Marshall tells Curtis he had the genetic testing done.
We also have Friday’s GH recap where Victor was tricked into thinking Valentin was dead, and Willow agreed to an early birth to harvest stem cells.

After she takes off to get ready, things get uncomfortable when Stella starts asking about the music for the wedding.
Curtis changes the subject.
Trina and Stella get ready to go out. Stella explains how she found her cousin on a genealogy test.
Trina wishes she’d followed up on the match she had in Port Charles. They chat about Jordan look into a match as well. Something seems to click for Stella.

Curtis is proud of him for doing it. His father is tired of running and being afraid. He wants to share everything with his family. He’s ready to let them in.
His son is glad he feels comfortable with them. Marshall tells him he’s the reason he did it. He’s not sure he can perform until he knows the results.
Curtis tells him the only thing that matters to him is having him at the wedding.
Maxie and Sasha are getting a pre-memorial manicure at the salon. Feeling like she looks good gives Maxie the strength to get through things.
Sasha pays her condolences. Maxie pays hers.
“I feel like all I do is say goodbye to people,” Sasha admits.
Maxie thinks they need to stay positive about Lucy and not give up on her being alive.
The topic turns to Gladys and Sasha explains that she’s determined to sell Brando’s garage whether she likes it or not. It’s really hard for her to let it go.
She apologizes for making this about her but Maxie says there’s no right or wrong with grief. Sasha wonders how she keeps going without giving up on life.
Maxie assures her that her memories of her loved ones will stay with her forever, regardless of whether or not she keeps the things she associates with them.

At General Hospital, Portia makes some wedding arrangements on the phone. She gets off and chats about it with Terry until they spot Jordan.
She’s there for Britt’s memorial. Portia gets a text about her wedding dress and Terry takes off for a meeting.
Jordan and Portia catch up until the doctor makes an excuse to leave. Jordan stops her to say she and an intense conversation with Taggert earlier about security at the wedding.
Portia gets defensive and tells her this is none of her business. Portia accuses her of trying to use Trina as a wedge between her and Trina.
After flashing back to all the laws she’s bent to protect her, Jordan tells Portia she has no idea what she’s done for her. If she was planning to go after Curtis, she’d have said so months ago.
Stella and Trina arrive. Stella wants to know what’s going on.
Jordan explains the divorce papers have all been sorted out and walks off. Portia admits that things are tense but she’s happy to see them.
When Portia goes off for a consult, Stella corners Jordan and asks her about the genealogy test that Trina took. Does she think there’s something suspicious about it too?
In Willow’s room, she and Michael talk about how they will see their child today. The stem cells will save her and all will be well.
After he jogs off, Sonny comes in and Michael immediately returns as Willow announces she’s having the baby today. They explain they are taking stem cells to treat the leukemia.
Sonny can’t wait to see his granddaughter and is sure Nina will be overwhelmed. Unless they aren’t welcome…
Drew joins Carly in the hallway and she tells him Willow will be okay. They hug and then back away, hoping no one saw them.
Nina did and hides around the corner. Carly tells Drew they need to keep practicing restraint.
“Aren’t you two cosy,” Nina says, stepping in front of them. She’s surprised by how quickly he forgave Carly after she lied to him.
As the women gear up to fight, Sonny interrupts. Carly and Drew take off. Sonny tells Nina that there may be a way to save Willow after all.
He explains and says Willow is anxious. Nina realizes there may be something she can do for her daughter after all.
Nina goes down to Willow’s room and asks to speak to her alone. Michael gives them a few minutes.
Nina tells her she doesn’t have to put on a brave face for her like she does for Michael and the family. She doesn’t need to worry about her feelings and can be totally honest.
Willow needs boundaries. She appreciates the effort but can’t deal with this now.
Terry interrupts and announces it’s time for the C-section. Nina wishes her good luck.
Sonny finds Michael in the corridor. He just wants to be there for his son.
Nina joins them and explains Terry just went into Willow’s room. He takes off. She hugs Sonny and tells him her daughter doesn’t want anything to do with her.
She starts venting to him about Carly. He tells her they need to focus on Willow. Fighting will not help anyone.
“Sometimes war are unavoidable,” she says. That makes him worry about what she’s planning.
She claims they just need to worry about Michael and Willow right now.
Down the hall, Drew asks Carly if Nina has figured out they are together.
She doubts that and is sure Sonny wouldn’t say anything. Drew reminds her of what could happen if Ned and his allies discovered their relationship.
Michael and Willow go past with the nurses to surgery.
At their safe house, Valentin, Anna, and Felicia discuss how they will nail Victor eventually.
They need to keep laying low until they get irrefutable evidence against Victor. But this is getting to Anna. She didn’t get to see her family over the holidays.
Anna assures Valentin that Laura will tell Charlotte enough that she won’t believe he’s dead. He’ll manage to stay away from her to make sure she’s safe.
Felicia makes an excuse and takes off. Valentin wonders if she just decided to give them some alone time.
He and Anna make out until Felicia returns with Charlotte.
Sitting alone with her father, Charlotte tells him she confronted Victor about him going missing.
He’s proud of her but asks her not to do that again. He promises he will always come back to her. Anna is important to him, but not as important as her.
Sitting in the breakfast nook, Anna thanks Felicia for being so nice. Felicia knows how much it hurts to miss so much of your child’s life.
Valentin wanders over and thanks Felicia.
Anna tells Charlotte she’s sorry her papa hasn’t been around for months. Charlotte just thanks her for bringing him back and gives her a hug.
