Friday’s GH recap: Dante Arrests Sonny for Assaulting Cyrus, and Felicia Confronts Cody About the DNA Test as PC Mourns Bobbie

Kelly’s is closed and Carly stands inside the empty restaurant and thinks about Bobbie telling her she’s a good mama.

Someone arrives and she yells out, “We’re closed.”

They don’t stop so she stomps over and sees Liz, who heard about Bobbie and is sorry for her loss.

Carly thanks her but they’re closed.

Liz wanted to be there, closer to Bobbie.

She doesn’t want to intrude but would like to do something for her if she can. “I loved your mom,” she says. Carly tears up and asks her in for coffee.

It’s uncomfortable and Carly offers to make her food.

Liz knows they’ve never been close and it’s for the best but just wants to listen if she wants to talk.

She goes to get a pastry and swears. The sink in the kitchen isn’t working.

Liz gets a wrench and bangs something underneath and it’s fixed.

She reminds Carly she used to work there and this happened all the time.

“Thank you,” Carly says.

Liz chokes up talking about counting on Bobbie and wanting to feel that security.

Maxie tells Felicia she didn’t just cross the line, she ran over it and then torched it.

Cody never gave her a DNA sample. Felicia admits she took strands of his hair from the Home and Heart set.

“Looks like deception runs in the family,” Cody says.

Felicia defends herself. Sasha interrupts and Maxie asks her to go.

Cody allows her to stay since she knows about the DNA results.

Felicia tells the room that her instincts were wrong and that Cody is not Mac’s son. Cody looks guilty.

He asks why she told him.

She says he’s important to her family and she wants to do the right thing.

He appreciates that. “We’re good.”

Maxie and Felicia take off together and Cody wonders what the hell just happened.

Sasha admits she saw Felicia take the hair and got someone to take the hair to the lab.

She swapped out the hair with her own.

Cody appreciates it but she shouldn’t have done it, shouldn’t have committed a crime for him.

It’s a risk but Sasha says it was her call. He wishes she’d have given him a heads-up.

He almost confessed to Felicia. Sasha assumes she really cares for him.

He too is fond of them all and hates lying to them.

He wishes he had guts to spill it. She knows.

He calls her his partner in crime.

On a call, Lucy struggles with tears as she calls the florist, trying to get the flowers Bobbie liked.

She wants the arrangement to be epic.

They talk about how much she and Bobbie fought but likes to think deep down there was mutual respect.

She cries that she can’t make it right with Bobbie.

They both realize they’ll regret that the rest of their lives.

Lucy hates to speak ill of the dead but Bobbie was no saint. Scott knows.

When she brought her brother to this town, his life changed.

Lucy doesn’t want to judge but she does. People forgave Bobbie but not her.

Scott thinks if she was a nurse, she’d have been forgiven.

Lucy starts to cry and asks him to swear not to tell anyone this. They pinky swear and Lucy confesses she was jealous of Bobbie.

People looked up to her and she wanted that for herself. Respect and admiration.

Maybe she and Bobbie weren’t that different after all. Maybe they would have been friends if she had gotten over her pettiness. Scotty agrees. Lucy forgot the forget me nots and worries.

She needs to focus on marrying him off to Tracy Q and bringing her down. Scotty runs a hand through his hair with a sigh.
