Friday’s GH recap:  Nikolas Returns with Ace as News of Spencer’s Death Spreads, and Jagger Returns to Raid Anna and Jordan’s Gun Deal

At home, Sonny barks at Eladio on a call, angry that he hasn’t found out who tried to take him out on his island.

He gives the man 24 hours to figure it out or he’s getting a new head of security.

Sam and Dante arrive, sorry to hear about Spencer.

They sit and talk about that and how happy they are that he’s living with Ava right now for comfort.

He tells them the trip went well and when Sam goes, Dante thinks his father’s hiding something. He has extra security.

Was there a threat? Sonny opens up about the shooting on the island.

Dante wants to help but Sonny’s in a bad mood and accuses him of not caring since he arrested him.

Dante didn’t have a choice. He should have thought about that before he beat someone up in a church!

Alexis keeps herself busy at work. Gregory finds her in her office and tells her he’s going out.

When he notices her sour mood, she fills him in on Spencer’s death. She feels terrible since she gave Esme a job.

Gregory calls her generous of spirit. “No good deed,” she says.

He doesn’t think she made a mistake but she thinks it is and she helped this along.

Nikolas is who knows where with Ace and Spencer’s dead.

Alexis feels shame

On set, Lucy complains to a PA about the hay on set and how it’s too rustic for romance.

She asks if Martin called. She says no, which worries Lucy.

lucy complains to the pa

She goes to call when Scotty walks in.

She asks how it went with Tracy and the flowers.

He doesn’t know and refuses to call her since it’ll look desperate.

Lucy whines about how Martin’s upset with her and puts the pressure on.

Scott grabs an apple from the cart and calls her.

scotty agrees to call tracy

From Metro Court, Tracy sees “Ambulance Chaser” is calling.

She thinks Scott will have to wait a little longer.

She approaches Martin who bitches about Lucy and Scott.

Tracy says Scott abandoned her after their public dust up to comfort her.

She asks if they broke up but he says no, he’s sorry to disappoint her.

Tracy rubs it in that the duo can’t keep themselves away from one another.

In her room, Anna introduces Jagger to Jordan.

He likes to go by John now, says he outgrew the nickname and tells them they should have stayed out of this.

They’re not even in law enforcement anymore. Not even deputized.

He tells them to stop and refuses to deputize them when Jordan asks.

It’s an FBI investigation. Curtis’ shooting is part of something much bigger.

He decides to bring them up to speed. The rifle is one of a large number of unmarked weapons stolen from the WSB.

Other weapons from the same cache have been used in a string of shootings throughout the USA.

They want more and he refuses. Anna asks him to bring them in on it.

Jagger gets a call and learns that they ruined his biggest lead.

Mr. O’Neil, the gunrunner was providing the unsub with weapons and now he’s asking for immunity, which his boss won’t sign off on. Anna’s sorry.

He asks if they got anything useful from the meeting and Anna makes a deal.

She’ll tell him if he tells them everything he knows about the unsub. They think the person was after Sonny.

Jagger assumes they want to tell Sonny what they learn and says the man should have been in prison, years ago.

He only cares about himself. Anna says he’s not the same man anymore. Anna thinks she can put a leash on him.

Jagger decides to arrest both women for obstructing his case and tells them to get a good lawyer. 

anna wants intel

Laura cries and hugs Nikolas and Ace when they arrive at her door.

He asks if it’s true, that Spencer’s really gone.

She explains what happened. Nikolas cries and holds his son closer.

He blames himself for taking Ace. “My son is dead because of me.”

nikolas and ace return

Laura holds his cheek as he cries, then puts the child to bed. She thinks her son should be glad to have Ace, and is glad he’s home.

He needs to be with his family.

Nikolas thought she’d slam the door in his face.

She could have and says he shouldn’t have taken the child. He agrees.

laura glad to see grandson and son

It caused Spencer’s death. Laura denies it. Esme did this. She was going after Trina. He knows.

Laura tells him she loves him when he’s unsure of how she can even look at him.

He tells her he can’t stay because he’ll go to prison. She thinks he deserves it since he held a pregnant woman captive for months.

When Nikolas says he can’t stay, Laura flies off the handle, thinking that maybe Ace is better off without him as a father.

nikolas can't stay

He agrees, which is why he’s leaving his son with him.

Laura urges him to face his mistakes.

Later, she jumps on a call with Dante, telling him that Nikolas is going to turn himself in and that he needs to come over immediately.
