Willow Loses Her Bone Marrow Donor, Sonny Discovers Something in Britt’s Papers, and Martin Tells Esme To Find An Alibi

General Hospital recap for Monday, January 9, 2023. In today’s GH episode, Nikolas asks Alexis for advice, Dante tells Jordan he doesn’t think Esme is the hook, and Spencer moves into Sonny’s penthouse.

We also have Friday’s GH recap where Liesl almost killed Esme before learning she’s pregnant, Spencer was rocked to learn Britt is dead, and Willow found a donor.

On an elevator at General Hospital, Willow tells Michael how excited she is about what the future holds for their family since she got a bone marrow donor.

They wait in the corridor and she looks forward to being able to tell people about her condition once it’s been solved.

He tells her she doesn’t need to protect his family. They love her too.

“Even your father?” she asks. He says Sonny can be her family if she wants but he wishes people would start pressuring him to reconcile with him.

He can’t fake respect for the man. He’s not the man he once was.

She’s sure he’s infatuated with Nina because she just reflects back what he wants to see. She thinks Sonny needs him to remind him of who he was.

As Dante and Jordan head to Esme’s room, Martin stops them and explains they are not allowed to speak to his client.

Dragging them over to Terry, he tells the doctor to explain why. She sides with the cops and then offloads the issue on Finn.

Once he, the lawyer and cops walk off, Terry breaks down to Liz about the sudden death of Britt.

She gets called away to an appointment and thanks Liz for being a friend.

Terry joins Michael and Willow in her office. Willow’s bloodwork shows the chemo has not had the effect they’d hoped for.

The baby is still strong, but what’s next will be hard. It would be best to deliver the baby before the bone marrow transplant.

Terry leaves them to talk it over.

Willow isn’t sure she can go through with this.

Terry returns with bad news. Their donor’s doctor did not clear them for the operation. They have to keep looking for a match and consider other treatments.

Down the hall, Finn checks Esme over and then lets the police question her. Martin reminds her she doesn’t need to say anything.

Dante shows her pictures of her victims and lists her crimes. Esme has no idea what they are talking about.

The cops exit and Martin promises he will set her free. She’s skeptical.

He points out the evidence against her is very weak. If she had an alibi, he could probably persuade the police not to charge her.

In the corridor, Dante points out that just because she doesn’t remember anything doesn’t mean she’s innocent.

They still have lots of evidence on some crimes, but h doesn’t think she’s the hook.

They go over the evidence and how unlikely it is that Esme did the killings. If they could figure out where she has been hiding, they could eliminate her as a suspect.

Down the hall, Finn corners Liz and tells her he knows how hard it must be to see Esme.

She doesn’t think he should pretend to care. He explains that just because things didn’t work out between them, doesn’t change how he feels.

Before she can tell him something about Esme, Jordan interrupts and asks for a statement.

She and Dante admit that they think Esme may not be the hook. Britt’s statement about the attacker didn’t suggest it was a pregnant woman.

If they are wondering where she’s been, Finn suggests they search Wyndemere.

Liz looks worried. Finn points out Spoon Island would be the best place for her to hide.

Alexis arrives at Kelly to meet Nikolas. She brings up Spencer but he wants legal advice. Martin is busy defending Esme.

Alexis wonders why he cares about Esme’s legal trouble. He explains he’s the father of her unborn child and needs help protecting the baby.

She’s appalled. He’s heard all the lectures already.

The prince wants full custody. She refuses to help take a child away from any mother.

He admits he’s not a sterling father, but he’d be a better parent than Esme.

She accuses him of just wanting to atone for his mistakes.

He admits he wants to give his baby what he couldn’t give Spencer.

After lecturing about giving up on his son, she agrees to find him a lawyer who specializes in difficult custody cases.
