Finn Says Too Much to Chase and Warns Him That He Could Die
Tuesday, May 18, 2021: Today on General Hospital, Anna gives Robert the news about Sean, Maxie makes arrangements for the birth of her baby, and "Mike" recognizes someone in Corinth.
Nina and “Mike” arrive at the Corinth Mall site to check out Elijah’s property acquisitions. Nina did research and there used to be a thriving local community there once. She wonders what happened. “Mike” suspects Elijah happened.
They walk around a rundown park and run into one of the locals, Barb. When questioned, Barb explains that five years ago the town was beset by crime and petty theft. The tourists stopped coming, and the owners sold when they were offered buyouts. Nobody suspected a strip mall would go up. “Mike” notices a similar situation going on in Nixon Falls.

“Mike” is convinced they’ll find similar stories if they visited the other towns from Elijah’s records. Nina agrees that Elijah is no good, and thinks the real story she needs to tell in Crimson is an expose on Elijah using crime to wipe out these small quaint towns. However, she needs proof. Mike notices a guy in the background on a phone, and he thinks he knows the guy. He realizes it is the guy who tried to rob the Tan-O a few weeks ago.
Diane meets with Carly at the Corinthos mansion to discuss her latest plan to bring Jason home. Carly, under attorney-client privilege, tells Diane that Sasha is pregnant by Brando. Carly is positive they can use this to bring Gladys to their side by pointing out Brando could be in danger from a jealous Cyrus, who took a liking to Sasha. Diane ponders that if they can get Gladys to admit that Cyrus put her up to lying about Jason then they could have Cyrus brought up on charges. Diane departs, and Carly calls Gladys and asks her to come by the house because they have something important to discuss.
At a Canadian lighthouse, Britt found some playing cards and thinks she should probably check Jason’s stitches. He excuses himself to wash up. Britt pulls out a phone and makes a call, but Jason returns and catches her. She explains that she needs to get in touch with Maxie, and knows she has to keep it quick even on a burner phone.
Peter drops by Maxie’s place because she asked to see him. Maxie informs Peter that she needs to leave town. She explains she’s going for a few spa days to relax and process the loss of her godfather, who she just found out died. Peter insists that Chloe accompany her.
Just then, Maxie’s phone rings. She answers and it’s Britt, who wants to know if she’s okay and if she’s keeping Peter at bay. Maxie is able to signal to her friend “Trish” that Peter is there, and she made other arrangements when she found out she couldn’t help out with James due to having the flu. Britt urges her to be careful, and she’s confident she’ll keep her baby safe from Peter.
