Martin Accuses Cam of Lying, Grills Elizabeth About Her Past
Wednesday, October 23, 2019: On General Hospital today, Franco's hearing gets underway, Finn treats his daughter, and Sonny and Carly bring Donna home.
At the hospital, Sonny, Bobbie, and Carly laugh thinking about Milo outside installing the car seat. They’re excited to bring little Donna home. Sonny steps away to sign a form leaving Bobbie to discuss Donna’s follow up doctor visits with Carly. Bobbie also asks if Carly’s experiencing postpartum depression. Carly assures her mother there’s been no signs of it. She’s feeling very prepared to face the unknown with her new baby. Elsewhere, Finn is stunned when Hayden confesses that his new patient is her daughter – his daughter too. Hayden knows it’s a lot to process but they have to focus on their sick daughter right now. Furious, Finn agrees and says they will deal with everything else later. Finn enters the room staring at the little girl until Epiphany snaps him out of his trance. He crouches down next to Violet, who has a 102-degree temperature and introduces himself as Dr. Finn. He’s going to do everything he can to make her feel better. Epiphany notes the tension between Finn and Hayden as Finn asks his ex to wait outside while they examine Violet. When he’s finished with Violet, he walks outside to tell Hayden he’s bringing another doctor in since there are strict rules against doctors treating their children. However, he questions Hayden about the last two weeks and what Violet was exposed to. If it’s a flu or other contagious illness they need to get alert anyone she came in contact with. Hayden urges him not to shut her out, but Finn curtly leaves to consult with the other doctor. Finn returns demanding to know why this is the first time he’s meeting his daughter.

Franco’s competency hearing gets underway at the courthouse. Cam sits with Liz at the table with Scott, as Kim sits behind Franco and Martin. As Scott and Martin present their cases, Cam gets a text from Joss saying she’s sorry she can’t be there.

He also recounts what happened with Shiloh and that Franco’s last words were to tell Elizabeth that he’d be back. Martin accuses him of lying about Franco’s last words, which upsets Cam. Franco stands up to stop Martin from badgering the boy. Elizabeth is next on the stand to talk about her deep love and intention of keeping her marriage vows no matter what.
