Wednesday, July 14, 2021: Today on General Hospital, Spencer faces his family, Anna gets closer to the truth, and Austin stakes a claim on what his father lost.
Maxie assumes that Nina thinks she’s lost it since she sounds like she’s going to snatch Brook Lynn’s baby. She makes Nina promise to keep a secret. With some prodding, Maxie explains that Bailey is actually her baby. She gave her to Brook Lynn to keep her safe from Peter. Nina’s mouth hangs open. Maxie recaps everything that happened and swears she didn’t kill the nurse deliberately. Nina asks if Valentin was in on this, and Maxie assures her that he wasn’t. Although Nina agrees to stay quiet, she thinks that if she brought Valentin into the loop, he could help, and his heart wouldn’t be broken. Valentin and Anna would back Maxie up with Peter. Maxie, however, isn’t willing to take that risk.

Ava explains the marriage began for the wrong reasons and is ending for the right ones. She walks out and soon returns with a bracelet that Nikolas bought for her. After Spencer makes some sarcastic remarks, Ava tells Nikolas she’s glad he has his son back and exits. Father and son argue about Ava before Spencer says he’s come back because he’s missed him.

Scott and Austin announce that he is contesting Edward’s will and a judge will have to decide that. They argue until Valentin calls the meeting to order. He says they can’t vote today while things are unclear. The meeting is adjourned. Austin apologizes for the melodrama and insists that he’s not there to take anything away from the family. He’s sad that he never knew his grandfather and is looking forward to getting to know the Quartermaines.
