    GH Recap: Escape Plans.

    Monday, January 26 2015

    At Pentonville Franco is busted by a guard who finds Sonny’s cellphone in his bunk and gives the guard an original Franco sketch in order to avoid another stint in solitary. Franco also gets to keep the phone and gives Nina a call to check on her. He’s shocked when Nina hands the phone to Heather. Elsewhere, Ava talks with Julian about Sonny, who she suspects tried to have her killed. Julian doesn’t think Sonny was behind the hit on her, but that it was their old boss Fluke. He informs her that Fluke was not Faison after all, and he may actually be Bill Eckert. Julian also tells her about his plan to escape in order to protect Lucas. Ava informs Julian that she has a way out and says that Madeline is being transported to the PCPD jail until her trial and she plans to hitch a ride on the van. Julian says he will too and convinces Ava that she needs him for protection. Before Julian can tell her that he’s working with Sonny a guard catches her and drags her back to her cell. In another part of the prison Shawn meets with Sonny and says that Eckert’s grave was empty. Sonny isn’t surprised and plans to handle Fluke himself but orders Shawn not to tip Fluke off as he could snap. Shawn confesses to Sonny that Jordan happened to trail him so she knows what’s going on. He swears that Jordan is loyal though. Later Sonny fills Julian in on Eckert’s grave being empty.

    Back at Shadybrook, Heather talks to Franco on the phone. He’s shocked to learn his mother is there and warns her to stay away from Nina. Heather tells Franco that she’s going to punish him by crushing Nina. Franco begs her not to do this, but Heather says there is no way he can stop her and hangs up the phone as she hands it back to Nina. Nina thinks they must have gotten disconnected. The phone rings as Franco tries calling back, but the guard takes it from Nina as she’s out of time.
