Sonny Begins to Doubt Dex’s Innocence — But Joss Prepares to Step up to Defend Him
Tuesday, September 27, 2022: Today on General Hospital, Nina offers help to Sasha and Gladys, Portia confronts Jordan, and Drew arrives to help Carly in Jacksonville
At Nina’s place, Sonny offers Gladys some tea to help her relax. Sasha comes out of a spare room but couldn’t sleep because all she sees is Brando in that hospital bed when she closes her eyes. Sonny has to head out, so Nina walks him to the door. He gets a call from Alexis and is informed about the attack on Diane, which he relays to Nina before taking off to GH.
Gladys and Sasha sit on Nina’s couch and look at old photos of Brando on Glady’s phone. Sasha realizes without Brando she has no family left. Gladys tells her they are still family, and she’s stuck with her. Gladys suggests if Sasha is ready they can begin making funeral arrangements. Nina thinks they don’t have to do this now, but Sasha doesn’t want to leave Brando in the morgue. She feels this would be good for them, and they’ll have somewhere to visit him.
Gladys makes a call and gets troubling news. The funeral home won’t take Sasha’s card because there is a bank hold on it. Sasha realizes it’s because Brando must sign off on her purchases as her guardian. She breaks down and doesn’t know what to do. Nina offers her card to pay for the funeral costs. Sasha thanks Nina, as does Gladys for all she’s done for them. Nina tells them that she’s not going anywhere.
At the hospital, Portia informs Curtis that Diane Miller was brought in as the latest victim and they are operating on her now. She texted Trina, who is out with Rory, and didn’t want to tell her about Diane that way. Curtis thinks it’s bound to get better, and thanks to the Invader article they are watching their backs. Portia notes Jordan isn’t too happy about it. Jordan appears and explains it’s making her job more difficult, but she needs Portia’s help. Jordan again reiterates the need for keeping important details under wraps. Curtis vents, “That was always your area of expertise.” He walks off to give them privacy, and Jordan suggests they go somewhere more private to talk.
Sonny arrives at the hospital to try and find information about Diane, but the nurse can’t give it to anyone who isn’t family. Curtis appears and tells him that she’s in surgery. Curtis also thanks him for looking out for his father and keeping his anti-psychotic meds a secret after he learned about them. Sonny says he wasn’t just looking out for Marshall, he also did it because he respects Curtis.
In Portia’s office, she tells Jordan that Diane was infected with the same poison as Brando, but Finn had an anti-venom ready. Jordan still worries that the killer made sure Brando didn’t survive, so she’s worried about Diane. Jordan arranges for someone to stand guard over Diane, and calls Rory.
Portia regroups with Curtis and asks about his talk with Jordan. He explains Jordan swears she didn’t deliberately sit on the divorce papers, but she said some strange things about them and as if they were keeping secrets from one another. He thinks Jordan assumes everyone keeps secrets just because she does. Portia thinks back about Jordan questioning her about the truth regarding Trina’s father. Portia tells Curtis she just remembered something she needs to take care of and takes off.
At the PCPD, Dante questions Dex in the interrogation room. Dex states he has no idea what happened to Diane, and when he entered the garage, she was already on the ground bleeding. Dante asks why he was there in the first place. He explains Sonny asked him to lock up after Diane while he took Sasha home. Dante doesn’t understand how he didn’t see anyone enter the garage, and he senses Dex is lying about something.
Dante notes Dex has been at the scene of all three attacks and that’s a pattern. Dex reminds him that he gave first aid to Diane and Ava to save their lives. Dante suggests Dex call his lawyer and leaves him. Dex makes a call to Sonny and says he’s in trouble and needs his help. Sonny says he’ll be right there.
Sonny arrives later and speaks with Dante about Dex and the attack on Diane. Dante tells his father that Dex has been at the scene of every attack and somehow saw nothing each time. He suggests Sonny ask himself how well he knows this kid.
Sonny meets with Dex in the interrogation room, who swears he is innocent of the attacks. He asks Sonny if he believes him. Dante and Jordan enter before Sonny can answer. Sonny asks if Dex is under arrest. When they don’t answer, Sonny tells Dex they can leave. Jordan suggests dex not leave town. Alone, Dante informs Jordan that Dex swears he didn’t see anything. She thinks there is something off about Dex, and Dante agrees. She asks Dante to keep digging.
Portia storms into Jordan’s office later and can’t believe what she said to Curtis about her.
Cam, Joss, Rory and Trina arrive for a double date at the axe throwing joint. Cam and Rory go to grab the axes, and Joss tells Trina she’s happy she ended up with Rory. Trina says, “As opposed to Spencer?” Trina admits with Spencer out of her life she’s happier than she’s been in a while, and she just wants to have fun. Trina turns the conversation to Joss and asks if she and Cam are okay. Joss says they’re past the rough patch. Trina wonders if Joss told him about dumpster diving with Dex. She hasn’t and points out Cam didn’t tell her about Spencer’s lies.
After throwing some axes, Rory gets a call from Jordan informing him about Diane and asks him to come to stand guard over her. Rory tells Joss, Trina and Cam that he has to get to work and that Diane was attacked. He says the good news is a suspect was brought in.
Rory goes to leave, and Joss follows him and stops him. She knows he can’t say certain things, but asks who the suspect is given she’s so close to this case. Rory says all he can say is it’s someone who has been at every crime scene and has been questioned before. She realizes it’s Dex.
Joss leaves, and Trina asks Cam if they should get out of here too. Cam wants to air things out, and he knows she’s mad at him for covering for Spencer. She is angry, but it doesn’t mean she can’t get passed it. Cam explains he was torn between two people he loves, and it was difficult. Trina thinks about keeping Joss’s secret about Dex and understands.
Joss arrives at the station and questions Dante about Dex being a suspect.
Outside the station, Sonny offers Dex a ride home. They get into his car and he ominously notes they’re going to make a stop first.
Down in Jacksonville, Carly speaks with Olivia on the phone and feels bad she’s not there with her family, but Sonny believes it’s better she stays here. There is a knock at the door, so Carly says she’ll need to call her back. She answers to find Drew standing there. She’s surprised to see him, and he explains he called Mia to find out what happened to her. Carly invites him in.
Drew assumes Carly spoke to her family. She confirms she knows about Brando and feels terrible she was so out of touch. She also explains Sonny felt it was better she stays here and Drew agrees. He also says he’s got the kids well-guarded. Carly can’t believe he tracked her down to tell her about Brando. He notes it wasn’t the only reason. He wanted to be here to support her, which means the world to her.
Carly’s phone dings and she gets an update on the cemetery being moved. She explains what is going on to Drew and that she hired a lawyer to fight it, but she has no standing because she’s not a resident. Drew won’t let her give up and has an idea. He reminds Carly he happens to own a media company that they can use to raise hell. They toast to making Jacksonville sorry they ever crossed Carly.
Drew notes it’s getting late, so he’ll go find a hotel and return in the morning to meet up with her. She thinks that the couch in her room pulls out and he can stay here. He isn’t sure that’s the best idea considering… Carly says they are adults and can have a friendly adult sleepover. He agrees to stay.
Drew preps the couch, which as it turns out doesn’t pull out. She apologizes and suggests the hotel bring up a cot, but he reminds her he spent two years in a cell, so this is heaven. He bunks on the couch and Carly climbs into the nearby bed. Carly thanks him again for coming. He promises they’ll fix this situation with her mom.
On the next General Hospital: Cody warns someone to stay out of his way. Sam demands Spinelli spit out what he’s not telling her. Ava asks Trina, “Would that be so bad?” Joss offers evidence of her own to Dante. Maxie tells Austin she’s glad they are getting this out in the open. Sonny tells Michael to go home as this doesn’t involve him. A strung-up Dex begs someone to believe him.
