General Hospital on 6/26/2015 – Dante is upset, Denise & Franco fake it, Madeline seduces Ric, an unexpected kiss!
An upset Dante is at home when Lulu calls from B.C., with Dillon in the hotel room – she likes and says Lake Cuomo is very Italian, but he catches her off-guard when he asks to speak to her grandmother. She pretends she is sleeping, and he continues to ask her questions.. she doesn’t know when she will be back. She tells him she loves him and is furious with herself when she hangs up! She hates lying to him, but Dillon reminds her the kidnappers said no cops. She thanks him for keeping her grounded during this stressful time.
Dante and Lulu – miles apart!
Lulu and Dillon search the hotel database, and they talk about both Spinelli and Georgie – they admit they have both grown since then. Lulu finds Luke and Laura’s room under an old alias, they knock on the door and she confronts her parents! They’re still waiting for further contact, and Luke tells them to get the hell out! They are probably being watched and may not get in touch if they see them.. she agrees to go back to their room to wait.
Dante throws his phone across the room when Valerie arrives.. he tells her Lulu and Dillon took a flight to Vancouver, and checked into a hotel together where they are sharing a room. Valerie doesn’t know what to tell him, and he thanks her for checking up on him. He asks if she could watch Rocco while he goes to confront his cheating wife and kick her boyfriend’s ass! Valerie tells him to sleep on it, just one night… stay here, with her. Over dinner, he thinks there has to be an explanation…
Morgan tells Sonny he needs to fight his attraction to Denise, he doesn’t want to hurt Kiki but Sonny reminds him she is trouble! TJ arrives and Sonny tells Morgan that he is moving in.. and he has given him Michael’s old room. Carly returns home and he tells her the new arrangement, which makes them both a little sad as they miss Michael. Sonny wistfully says the house if full of empty rooms, including Avery’s.
Michael and Sabrina
Sabrina suggests Michael can repair the rift with his parents if he gives Avery back to Sonny. If he isn’t happy, the baby will sense that, but Michael worries if she will be okay. Sabrina understands, she thinks by taking care of AJ she is making up for what she did to Ava. Plus she isn’t her mother. Michael knows he isn’t her father, but he is worried about the danger and it would send a message that killing AJ was ok – it still feels wrong to let it go. She says the longer he holds on to his anger, the more it will hurt him – she knows that first hand. She knows how much he loves Avery – but if he gives her back he will put down the anger and vengeance and allow himself to move on. She thinks AJ would want the same and tells him to sleep on it, it’s a big decision. She will support him no matter what.

Carly and Kiki explain that she is now a couple with Franco – Denise says they bumped into each other and hit it off. One thing led to another, and the rest is history. Nina stares daggers at the pair, she still doesn’t buy it. Franco says Denise is fun, and where’s her husband..? She leaves to go find Ric, and Franco drags Denise away from Morgan, Kiki and Carly.
Franco thanks Denise for backing him up, but why would she do it? He admits she could have been anybody, he just needed Nina to think he was with someone. She admits she needed the same thing, he asks who??
