General Hospital on 1/23/2015 – Mothers & daughters, Haunted Star party, Shawn goes grave-digging!
In Pentonville, Ava wakes up from a nightmare.. to find Madeline standing there. What’s keeping her from her beauty sleep? Ava replies she can’t be with her baby, and it’s HER fault – she blames Nina for her premature labor with the drugs Madeline got for her. Madeline cries and claims she was forced to do unspeakable things as she feared for her life.. then laughs and says that will be her testimony tomorrow! She even has a witness. She gloats that she’s about to walk out of the joint, while Ava is stuck there forever. Ava accuses her of selling out her daughter to protect herself, but Madeline accuses her of doing the same. The guard lets Madeline out, and pulls out a knife.. he can’t have a witness to what’s going to happen next!
Kiki at Kelly’s
At Kellys, Morgan runs into Kiki and Avery.. on his way to shoot pool at the Floating Rib. He cradles Avery, while they talk about Michael – she didn’t think he was capable of being so cold. Dante and Lulu stop by to coo over the baby, Lulu wonders how Kiki is doing..? Dante mentions Sonny’s side of the family, she isn’t alone – Morgan mentions he is still looking for a job, when Lulu offers him one at the Haunted Star. They leave together. Kiki and Dante talk about Michael, he thinks they will figure it out – Kiki says it didn’t help that Morgan kissed her. Being more than friends would be complicated, and Michael would hate them more than he does now.
Hauted Star – a party!
Michael and Lucas arrive at the Haunted Star to see Fluke, who’s carrying the baseball bat he found in the basement on Elm Street. So what’s the big surprise? He apologizes and supports Michael’s idea to level the house and build the clinic there. He was using his bad memories against Michael – turn a negative into a positive. He won’t stand in their way anymore.. and wants to throw a party! To wine and dine the fat cats for their donations… Michael agrees when Lulu and Morgan walk in.

He’s surprised the two have become pals and wants to talk… he threatens to tell the guards about the contraband phone and escape attempt. He’s willing to keep his mouth shut for a price. He wants to use the phone to protect his people as well. He just wants to check up on someone.

Heather perks up, but claims to know him only as the famous artist. Nina smiles and remembers how he watched over her.. too bad he isn’t there to protect her now, Heather responds. Franco tried to get sent to Shadybrook with her, but the judge didn’t buy it.. she thinks about him all the time. everything she loves is gone.. that’s what she gets for trusting her mother. She tells Heather her mother put her in the coma as she wanted her baby to die.. Heather thinks she sounds horrible. Nina asks why would a mother do that to a child..?
