On today's episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL, Lexi Ainsworth brought Kristina Corinthos Davis back home to visit her father, Sonny, as he recovers from the gunshot wound that nearly killed him. Since it's been a few years since the character was last on the canvas, Soaps In Depth is here to provide you with a refresher on the storyline that led Alexis and Sonny's child out of town to begin with!
Yale brought out the worst in Kristina. When she returned to Port Charles two years ago, it was bitter and resentful that her father had pulled a few strings to get her into the prestigious university. She also returned with a boy named Trey. He was a budding filmmaker who followed Kristina home to produce their reality show, MOB PRINCESS. Small world that it is, Trey turned out to be Connie Falconeri's son, who was conceived during rape and later abandoned.
Even though Kristina was conned into marrying Trey (she demanded an annulment upon realizing that he was the son of her dad's mortal enemy, Joe Scully), the young couple eventually realized that they wanted to be together as a bona fide couple and decided to move to California for a fresh start. But while Trey said an emotional good-bye to his mother before moving across the country, Kristina became distracted by a rumbling in the trunk of Connie's car, unaware that Johnny was tied up inside! When Kristina pointed out the mysterious ruckus, Connie got in the car and peeled out! Concerned that something very weird was going on, Trey, Kristina, and their pals Michael and Starr hopped into a car and followed Connie in close pursuit. As a result of the car crash that occurred when Connie slammed on the brakes, Trey suffered a serious brain injury.
When Trey was declared brain dead, Connie ultimately agreed to take her son off life support. But Kristina blamed her father's ex for Trey's death and smashed Connie's computer with a bat, threatening that she would be next to die! Connie called the police and had her arrested, but during Kristina's arraignment, changed her tune and dropped the charges. Nevertheless, the judge sentenced Kristina to community service at Pentonville.
Kristina later left Port Charles and returned to college, this time at Wesleyan University in Connecticut.
