General Hospital on 9/21/2015 – Morgan vs Julian, Paul’s plan for Ava, Sonny asks for Jake, Sam hesitates…
Sam is stunned by Patrick’s proposal but admits she has been thinking about it too! He doesn’t have a ring as he didn’t plan it, but seeing her when he came home made it feel right. He talked about it with Lucas and also Elizabeth, who wants them to get married! She’s a little puzzled by that, and Patrick wonders if she’s ready for the next step? He thinks their life is perfect together, he loves listening to her, and how she is with Emma.. and they’re on the same page. It’s the best feeling in the world. She hesitates.. and admits it’s because of Jason. She tells him how much she loves him, but the timing feels strange as tomorrow is her anniversary. He asks if tomorrow was just a regular day, would she say yes? She doesn’t want to answer now, it’s too important to her – she wants it to be about them, not past relationships. She has butterflies with him, and he gives her a feeling of permanence. She believes in them and their family, and leans in for a kiss.
Paul needs Ava
Ava opens the door to Paul, who says he can help her… and shows her a flash drive with her murder confession. She tries to snatch it from him, and asks who is.. he asks her to invite him in, like the civilized adults they are! He pours himself a drink and tells her the recording could put her back in jail.. she assumes it’s about money, but he says it’s a little more complicated. It’s not about money or sex.. it’s about power! They will run the Jerome organization together.. and he’s been going up against Sonny for months now. It hasn’t been Julian, it’s him.. and admits he shot Sonny, and framed Julian! It’s a perfect time for them to snatch up his territories. Ava says no, but Paul shows her the flash drive – she has no choice but to do his bidding. She asks why he needs her?
Dillon is thrilled that Paul was able to help him out, and Maxie points out she noticed the sparks flying between Tracy and Paul. Maxie insists Tracy tell her about the history between her and Paul. Tracy explains he was involved in some shady deals.. organized crime! He was involved in a cartel to gain economic control of the harbor – they used violence, and the motive was greed. He was strong-armed by the cartel, but Tracy says he’s grateful he got out. Maxie wonders why she’s reluctant to get involves, but Tracy says she has been burnt too many times – Dillon agrees that she should proceed with caution. Maxie says life is so much better when you have someone to share it with, Dillon and tells her that Paul is very different from Luke. But all they have in common is him (their son) and a broken marriage. Maxie reminds them that sharing a child creates a major bond, and she notices that Tracy smiles when she’s with Paul. She thinks she should jump in with both feet.
