In the first of two shows live from the GENERAL HOSPITAL sound stage, executive producer Frank Valentini and headwriter Ron Carlivati left viewers with not one, not two, but four Friday cliffhangers!
The walls at Wyndemere have ears! Liz was letting Nikolas know in no uncertain terms that she wasn't going to "let some bit-con [aka Hayden] ruin my happiness!" Right on cue, Hayden marched in with a smile of a piranha on her face and said, "Oh yea? What are you gonna do about it?" A verbal catfight ensued with Hayden threatening to tell Jake that he was really Jason Morgan. "Go ahead! Do it!" Nik urged her.
Meanwhile, Sam headed to the garage to give Jake a sizeable piece of her mind! "Tell me you didn't kill Duke!" she shouted over and over again. But he couldn't say it. Out of frustration, she slapped him. (Side note: without the quick edit and sound effects added, it was more like she was wiping mustard off his cheek.) Finally, Jake screamed back, "I didn't do it!" Minutes later, Hayden arrived, ready to spill the truth to Jake!
Twenty-four hours after promising Sonny he'd reveal the name of Duke's killer, Julian showed up to do just that. After a shoving match and some broken barware (no surprise there), Julian told Sonny that Jake was the shooter and he was alone in the garage! As Sonny was telling Shawn, "Jake dies tonight!" Julian stepped outside and called Sloane. It was all a set up so Sloane could catch Sonny in the act of murder!
Fresh from Duke's funeral, Anna paid Sabrina a visit. Sabrina admitted that she let Carlos hide in her apartment, but the minute she knew he shot Duke, she was horrified. "He told you, did he, that he had killed Duke?" Anna asked. "Yes," Sabrina confirmed. Anna had the proof she needed. She handed Sabrina her phone and told her she must find out where Carlos was. "It's the right thing to do," Anna said. Through tears, Sabrina spoke to a repentant Carlos and learned he was on Pier 54 waiting for a boat.
Shortly thereafter, Anna found Carlos on the dock. She pulled her gun and said he was under arrest for the murder of Duke Lavery. He toyed with her, saying he'd never go to jail because of reasonable doubt. She regretfully agreed... and pulled the trigger, shooting him in the chest!
Franco came knocking on Nina's hotel suite door, begging for forgiveness, but her ears were closed. Nina stepped out of the room for a few seconds and, when she returned, she was decked out in a wedding gown, veil and all! She announced that she couldn't sit around after he broker her heart so she moved on... and was getting married that day! Franco thought she was either delusional or trying to stick it to him. Then there was a knock on the door. Was it Nina's "fiancé"? From the look on her and Franco's faces, it wasn't housekeeping with fresh towels!
Live, Monday on GH, what does fate hold for Carlos, Jake, Hayden and Nina? Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!
