GH Recap: Drew is Determined to Get Revenge on Nina, Esme Goes to Cyrus for Help, and Jordan is Abducted

Thur Jan 18, 2024: Today on General Hospital, TJ and Jordan discuss the surrogacy, Drew and Anna commiserate, and Carly tells her son that he’s just like her.

Wednesday’s GH recap: Michael was confronted by Carly and Drew after Nina exposes him, and Esme was livid Spencer gave Ace away.

At the Quatermaine estate, Carly reminds her son that he accuses her of playing god with Willow’s wife a year ago. He was right about that.

michael tells mom he's a hypocrite

Michael knows he did the same thing with what he knew about Nina. She knows they all have tunnel vision about protecting family.

He admits that he chose his dad’s happiness over hers and is a hypocrite. “I think that makes you your mother’s son,” she says.

Michael just wanted everyone to be happy and his mom reminds him that keeping things buried always has unintended consequences.

carly talks about consequences

They sit down and worry about Drew’s state. He’s sorry he’s put his mom in this position.

She says he’s struggling since what happened to him in Pentonville. Michael says no one comes out of there the same and it will take time.

She’s sure that she can talk to Drew. Her son thanks her for her forgiveness.

She’ll always forgive him but the apology tour isn’t over and he needs to make things right with Willow and stop Nina from hurting the family.

The nanny interrupts to say the kids need to be tucked in. Michael goes up to do it.

She calls Drew to leave a message saying she loves him.

Michael returns and they get back to venting about Nina.

The silver lining of all this is that Nina is out of the family and she no longer has to co-exist with her or listen to her sappy speeches.

She may want payback, but she wants peace of mind more.

Losing Bobbie taught her it’s best to move on and suggests he do the same.

Jordan sighs as she sits with TJ at the Metro Court. She says this meal was long overdue. They talk about how busy she is with her new job.

He hopes she’s leaving room for a person life because they may need a babysitter soon. If all went to plan, her grandchild was conceived today.

His mom congratulates him. He never thought this would happen, especially with Kristina. They had a talk about it.

He asks his mom if she’d comfortable with this.

tj asks jordan if she's comfortable

She avoids answering. When he admits that her opinion won’t change his mind, she doesn’t see the point in giving it.

She makes it clear she will love his children no matter what and she’s proud of his ability to determine his own destiny.

jordan and tj catch up

Her phone keeps going off. She explains she’s digging into Curtis’ shooting and assures him she is being careful about it.

When her phone keeps going off, he tells her to take care of it and she leaves.

Outside, Jordan takes a call and agrees to meet someone about the gun.

Two men pop up and corner her.

She orders them to identify themselves. They shove her in a car.

Blaze drops by Kristina’s place to ask if she can come out and play.

Kristina was planning an easy night in.

blaze surprises kristina

The singer offers to keep her company and enters.

She apologizes for not calling first but it hasn’t been easy to get her on the phone.

“Why does it feel like you’ve started pulling away?” she asks.

Kristina claims she’s been really busy.

blaze asks kristina about finishing things

Blaze assumes she’s done something to hurt her. The Corinthos says she pulled away first.

They held hands and then Blaze dropped hers when BLQ and Chase came.

Blaze is sorry. Kristina asks if that’s because she’s not out to her family.

Blaze isn’t big on public displays and wants to keep her private life public.

Can she wait for her to be comfortable with being more public?

Kristina’s not sure she can do that. It took her a long time to authentically live her truth and she won’t go back.

She adds that her life is about to change a lot. She might be pregnant right now.

This complicates things. Blaze reminds her they talked about juggling this but it does seem more difficult now that it’s real.

Kristina assumes that’s an end of it.

They like each other a lot, but she doesn’t think that’s enough.

blaze likes kristina

Blaze feels stupid for not picking up on the distance earlier.

Kristina thinks they should call it and the singer leaves, wishing she hadn’t let go of her hand.

blaze kristina end

Alone, Kristina eats an apple and talks to the baby that might be there, asking if she did the right thing or not.

kristina apple

Blaze comes back and tells her she may be right about anything.

But how will they know this won’t work if they don’t try.

She’s not a quitter and asks her to take a chance.

Blaze brought groceries to make her dinner. Kristina lets her in.
