Tuesday, July 27, 2021: Today on General Hospital, Liz turns to Scott for advice, Stella makes a move to save Jordan and Curtis' marriage, and Portia confides in Trina.
Finn leads Anna to Helena’s lab under General Hospital and tells her that Peter’s in the freezer. He admits, “Peter August is dead, I killed him.” Finn explains what happened, but leaves Liz out of the story. Anna asks why he didn’t come to her. He says it wouldn’t have helped her find Louise, and he couldn’t leave Violet without a father. He apologizes for being so hard on her for keeping secrets given he did the same.
Anna realizes Finn couldn’t have transported Peter to the basement alone. Finn says what happened was on him and no one else, but Anna reveals if she could connect him to what happened, then the PCPD won’t be far behind. She understands him wanting to protect someone but Finn swears it was only him. Anna always feared one day she’d have to identify Peter’s body. They open the freezer, only to find it’s empty!
Up in the hospital, Liz meets with Scott and asks him how the law defines justifiable homicide. Scott explains it comes down to a situation of kill or be killed. He recalls a friend of hers needing legal advice recently involving a disappearance, and he can’t help them because it would be a conflict of interest seeing that she is his priority. He asks her to tell him what is going on. Liz would if she could, but other people are involved. Liz says her friend needs help and she can’t turn on them. Scott advises she stay quiet and not talk because justifiable homicide doesn’t apply here. He advises if the police come to her that she stays quiet and to call him.
Elsewhere, Jason calls Spinelli and asks for another favor, to locate something. Later he finds Liz and Scott, and Scott hopes Jason isn’t the friend Liz spoke of. She swears he isn’t. Scott departs, and Liz fears Anna knows about Peter. She hopes Jason got to Peter before Anna did. Jason reveals he got to the freezer but Peter’s body wasn’t there.
