Finn Realizes Liz Is Terrorizing Herself — and Snaps Her Out of a Sleepwalking Trance
Friday, May 20, 2022: Today on General Hospital, Marshall is rushed to the hospital after being stabbed, Bobbie has words with Carly, and Jordan remembers Portia's confession when they almost died.
At The Savoy, Carly and Bobbie grab a table and Bobbie glares at Nina and Sonny at the bar. Meanwhile, Sonny tells Nina not to worry about them. Nina sees Bobbie throwing daggers her way and tells Sonny that she’s caused him enough trouble and feels she should leave. Sonny tells her not to leave on his account, because her being around isn’t trouble.
At their table, Bobbie hates the way Sonny is flaunting Nina in public and wants to give them a piece of her mind. She stands up, but Carly begs her to sit down and not give them the satisfaction. Bobbie listens to her daughter.
Nearby, Portia and Taggert discuss Trina and the Title 9 case. Taggert blames their illustrious commissioner for this. Jordan arrives, and Taggert confronts her for allowing Trina to take the fall for a crime she’s innocent of instead of going after the real criminal. Portia tries to smooth things over and advises Taggart have faith in his former partner. Taggert feels there is little faith going around lately and walks off.
Portia offers to have Jordan join her if she’s off the clock. Jordan is, but she’s keeping an eye on Curtis’ club while he’s out of town. Portia asks if Curtis’ business is being targeted? Jordan doesn’t think there is trouble, and she may be overly cautious. Portia tells Jordan she’ll always be family to Curtis and she’s glad she has his back.
Sonny runs into Taggert and gives him some assurance about Trina. He then overhears Bobbie asking Carly about the test results. He walks over and asks what tests? Is Carly sick? Bobbie excuses herself, and Sonny sits down. Carly assures him that she’s not sick, but Sonny knows when she’s hiding something. She tells him he no longer has a right to know about her, but she’s not sick or hurt.
Bobbie approaches Nina, and Nina informs her it’s best they do not talk before the hearing. Bobbie responds, “Listen to me and there doesn’t have to be a hearing.” She urges her to drop the petition, but Nina refuses. Bobbie rants that she was the first one to see through Nelle and what a psycho she was, and now she sees where she got her entitlement and greed from. Nina reminds Bobbie she knows all about her messy and sordid past too as Scott loves to talk. Nina didn’t get a chance to help Nelle, but Bobbie got a second chance with her daughter. She snarks that Carly takes right after her prostitute mother. Bobbie responds by throwing a drink in her face. Nina warns her that she’ll pay for this when she wins visitation rights tomorrow. Sonny and Carly are forced to intervene and break them up before things get even more serious.
At their table, Carly tells her mom she loved that and it’s the least of what Nina deserves. Carly intends to give Nina hell tomorrow. Meanwhile, Nina tells Sonny that fight was a reminder of why it’s imperative she win tomorrow.
Taggert says goodbye to Portia before leaving, and lets Jordan know he trusts her. Portia talks about Taggert always being a devoted father. Suddenly, Jordan is hit with a memory and hears Portia saying, “I have to tell Trina the truth about her father.” Portia asks if something is wrong, and Jordan tells her, “It’s what you said when we almost died.” She suddenly remembered Portia had something to tell Trina about her father, and wonders if she ever told Trina what she needed to. Portia claims her brain was deprived of oxygen, so she’s not sure what she said. Jordan just knows secrets can hurt families, just look at Marshall. Portia is convinced Curtis and Marshall will work things out.
At Kelly’s, Finn tries to distract Violet with the headphones again, so she doesn’t hear the talk of ghosts. He tells his father that he thinks Violet is onto something, and what if Liz is harassing herself.
Gregory reminds Finn that he’s told him what a great mother Elizabeth is, so why would she do this to her boys? Finn recalls she was having trouble sleeping and was given a sleeping aid. He hypothesizes it may be causing her to sleepwalk, and it could be why she doesn’t remember anything. He decides to go talk to her. Gregory cautions him to be careful because she attacked Chase, so who knows what she’s capable of. Finn tells Violet he has to go for a bit to check on Aunt Elizabeth and gives her a kiss and hug.
At Liz’s house, she appears to be in a trance as she tears Finn and Violet out of the drawing the girl made. She then begins to cut the drawing up. Cam comes home and finds his mother still in a trance. He slowly approaches her and says, “It’s me, I’m home.” She says nothing and doesn’t even acknowledge him. He sits on the couch and sees she’s cutting up Violet’s drawing.
Finn arrives and Cam tells him that his mom is acting strange and he doesn’t know what to do. Finn sits next to her and tries to talk to her, but she doesn’t respond. He moves to take the scissors from her hands, causing her to jump. He promises no one will hurt her. Elizabeth snaps out of it and doesn’t know how she got to her house.
Finn asks what the last thing Liz remembers is. Liz recalls lying down at Laura’s. She doesn’t know how she got home. Cameron tells her that he found her in a trance cutting up Violet’s picture. Liz doesn’t know why she can’t remember any of this. She asks Finn if he knows what is going on. Finn believes the person who has been haunting her is herself. Cam argues his mom wouldn’t do that. Finn explains Liz wasn’t conscious when she did what she did, and it was a form of sleepwalking.
Liz cries if what Finn is saying is true, then she slashed her dress, set fire to Franco’s studio, and she hit Chase over the head. She cries, “What’s happening to me.” Finn hugs her and says it’s going to be okay. He promises her that they’ll find out what’s going on.

Michael and Willow head to their bedroom and make love.
