General Hospital recap for Tuesday, January 31, 2023. In today’s GH episode, Ava gives the video of Nikolas to Spencer, Stella comes to a huge realization and Carolyn can’t harm Esme.

We also have Monday’s GH recap where Valentin was reunited with Charlotte, Willow was prepped for her C-section, and Marshall told Curtis he had the genetic testing done.

Spencer looks at Britt’s photo at the memorial service when Ava comes into the church.

She asks if he spoke with Trina about getting custody of Esme and Nikolas’ kid. He did.

Ava asks if she convinced him to abandon the scheme.

Spence says Trina’s his friend…for now, but she hasn’t talked him out of anything.

Ava offers to increase his chances of getting custody without stepping foot in court.

He likes that. She says he’ll be blackmailed. If he doesn’t go to jail, it’ll harm his reputation.

She hands him a note, calling it dynamite. There’s a web address on there that’ll give him power over Nikolas.

She warns once he sees this, he can’t go back. “I can’t let him parent another child,” Spencer says.

Ava says he’ll know this came from her but she’s an expert at watching her back.

She helped Willow with her cancer diagnosis.

Trina didn’t know her well but is there as support for Spencer. Joss has a bag of food for her family which is about to get an addition.

They gossip about how Cam’s doing, and how he’s hurting.

Joss hates it and knows it’s her fault. Trina’s sorry. Spence thinks there’s more to her break up than growing apart. Joss says it’s too much to get into right now. She’ll reveal it all later. She asks what’s up with her and Spence. “We’re friends this time,” she says. She knows he’s changed. She asks if Joss and Cam will remain friends. Joss wants to but it’s up to Cam. She gets a text and has to go.
