Thursday, April 1, 2021: Today on General Hospital, Cam fights with Joss after upsetting Jake, Elijah is suspicious of Sonny and Nina, and Britt changes her mind.
Joss brings Cam some chocolate chip cookies at his place. Jake and Liz are arguing. He wants to visit his father and tell him he knows he would never kill Franco. Cam erupts and tells him he’s being stupid if he believes that. Jake accuses him of lying and runs off upset. Joss tells Cam he shouldn’t have done that. It was cruel.
When Liz catches up with Jake, he asks if she thinks his father is guilty. She says he’s innocent until proven otherwise. Jake heads back to the living room. His brother apologizes to him, but Jake won’t accept it because he refuses to admit Jason is innocent. Left alone, Cam and Joss continue arguing about Jason’s guilt. She makes it clear they aren’t on the same side and she won’t be friends with someone who can’t consider they might be wrong.
