Thursday, Nov 16, 2023: Today on General Hospital, Joss worries Adam could snap, Anna tells Sonny Charlotte has been targeting her, and Dante and Sam try to figure out what’s really happening with Charlotte.

Wednesday’s GH recap: The Surrogate miscarried, Cody joined Sasha as spokesmodel on Heart & Home, and Sasha admitted her feelings for him.

Austin shows up at the gallery since Ava hasn’t been responding to his texts. She says this is overdue.

ava and austin talk mason

They chat about Mason’s recovery and the likelihood he will plea rather than go to trial.

She wonders if he’ll give up his boss, Cyrus. He doesn’t know what the terms are.

Ava notes that he and his cousin have been working for Cyrus all along.

ava angry at austin

She screams about him for pressuring her into spying on Sonny and giving her sleepless nights over Nikolas.

He could have told her months ago who he was working for and that her husband was alive.

Why didn’t he?

ava agitated

The doctor claims he was only trying to protect her but she thinks he was manipulating her.

He insists he got close to her because he likes the feeling of being close to her.

His feelings for her are real and powerful.

austin won't make excuses

All he did, he did because he wanted to save her.

Many years ago, Cyrus went into business with his family in trucking. He paid for his medical school and that means that he owns him.

He explains that Cyrus forced him to help him get out of prison using Ava.

His feelings for her were leverage.

Ava doesn’t find this convincing and points out he had other options. She accuses him of just trying to save his own skin.

ava getting upset

He keeps saying he was only trying to help.

She says Dex, Dante, and Joss saved her while he’s a skulking coward.

Austin tells her he knows what will happen if Cyrus doesn’t get his way.

She hates him. He knows and he’s sorry he dragged her into all of this.

Ava orders him out.

She thinks the pressure they put on him could break him.

joss tells dex adam could snap

He says everyone has different levels of stress to deal with.
