After a Disturbing Encounter at Wiley’s Birthday Party, Willow and Michael Have Sex — Unaware That Chase Is Nearby
Monday, August 2, 2021: Today on General Hospital, Stella tries to warn Portia away from Curtis, "Mike" has Nina in a panic, and Jason and Carly worry about Harmony.
At General Hospital, Portia asks Jordan to get together. The commissioner already knows she and Curtis kissed. She saw them at The Savoy. Jordan is taken aback when the doctor admits they have been seeing each other. Portia apologizes; she hates hurting her. The cop insists it’s had nothing to do with her, but she doesn’t see how they can be friends. If she makes Curtis happy, they are good.
At Kelly’s, Curtis asks Stella to stop inserting herself into his relationships. Trina comes in and he invites her to join them. Stella takes off and Curtis guesses that Trina is not happy about what’s going on between him and Portia. He explains that it’s new and started after he split with Jordan. She’s skeptical. He insists they weren’t sneaking around behind Jordan’s back and she’s relieved.
After Trina leaves, Jordan arrives and tells Curtis that she has signed the divorce papers. She knows he’s moving on and she won’t hold him back. He wonders if she would have signed the papers if she didn’t think he was moving on.
Stella tracks Portia down at General Hospital and tells her she doesn’t want her and Curtis to get hurt. She suspects that’s destined to happen if they keep seeing each other. Stella flashes back to swiping the divorce papers and then explains she doesn’t think the marriage is over yet. Trina arrives around the corner as Stella reminds Portia about her affair with Curtis.
