The Evidence Against Cameron Comes in as He Discovers Who Killed Franco
Wednesday, May 5, 2021: Today on General Hospital, Carly makes a show of strength for the five families, Dante goes looking for Jason, and "Mike" tells Nina what he thinks of her.
At the PCPD, Scott encourages Liz to be calm. She’s having a hard time doing that since Cam has just been arrested. Jordan comes in and uncuffs Cam, who insists he didn’t shoot Jason. Scott tells him not to say anything and a cop leads him off for booking. He’s being charged with reckless discharge of a firearm. Scott explains to Liz that the surveillance footage will determine if it was intentional and that could change the charge. Jordan returns with Cam and Liz is left outside to watch through the window. When questioned, Cam insists he can’t remember what happened and Scott ends the questioning.
Liz confronts Jordan about interrogating her son. The cop asks her if Cam has been looking to make Jason pay. She suggests Cam could have shot Jason and then blocked it out. Liz refuses to believe that. She goes in to see her son and assures him she’s proud of him and they will get through this. A cop takes him away for the residue test. After Jordan checks the security footage, she turns to Liz and Scott, explaining that the shot that hit Jason appears to have come from behind Cam. The charges will be dropped. That’s a relief to them. When they are left alone, Liz tells Scott they need to get therapy for Cam and tell him that Peter is the one who killed Franco. Cam returns just in time to hear this.
