Tuesday, February 28, 2023: Today on General Hospital, Curtis and Trina discuss getting a DNA test, Jordan and Portia have a talk about Curtis, Nina gets news, and Willow asks Sasha for a favor.
Curtis stops by Trina’s dorm room to talk, as he assumes she’s been processing the news he could be her father. She invites him in, and he asks where the two of them go from here.
Curtis says he was there last year when Trina’s life blew up, and he knows she may have resented him at times. She says she never resented him, he was a little pushy, but then they set boundaries. He points out those boundaries have had a hole blown in them that they can do something about. She realizes he wants to do a DNA test. She feels she doesn’t need a DNA test and knows all she needs to know about her family.
Curtis knows Trina probably feels she’s betraying Taggert. Trina doesn’t know if this is fair to her dad, but she knows the not knowing will cause damage, and somewhere down the line a medical emergency could occur and she’ll need to know. Curtis wants to know the truth, but it’s her call. She is adamant she doesn’t need a DNA test, she loves her dad and she’s come to love Curtis too, just in a different way. Curtis says if she decides to take a test, then let him know. She tells him no matter what a DNA test says, Curtis interrupts and says he knows Taggert will always be her father.

Finn runs into Obrecht, who is waiting on test results. She also wonders what is keeping her Scott and can see Finn knows something. Nina encounters the two of them just as Finn tells Obrecht that Scott is helping a client.
Obrecht vents about the failures of the PCPD, and that someone had to know the truth that Esme wasn’t the killer, which cost her daughter her life as the police weren’t looking for the real killer. She wants a key to Heather’s cell or time alone with the person who helped hide Esme. Nina suggests to her aunt they go sit down so she can pull herself together.
Finn calls Scott and asks him how Liz is. Scott suggests he turn around and ask her. Scott and Liz walk into the hospital, and Scott proclaims Liz an innocent woman. Scott leaves them to talk, and Finn tells Liz she did a good thing by coming forward. She’s not so sure, but he says to think about what Nikolas might have done to Esme if she stayed silent.

Nina thanks her aunt for what she’s done. Scott approaches them as Obrecht tells Nina if she can save Willow’s life it will also be sweet revenge against Carly.

She senses he’s not telling her something. He confesses that Nikolas held Esme captive thinking she was the killer, and Liz helped him, even though they learned Esme wasn’t the killer in time.

Ava notes she wouldn’t fault him if he wanted to get back to GH and leave her to deal with this. Suddenly there is a knock at the door, and Dante identifies himself.
Dante and the police enter, and he gives them orders on where to search. Ava asks if this is necessary given that Heather is in prison and Ryan is in the morgue. Dante explains this is about some new information that Nikolas held Esme captive here. Ava acts shocked and says Esme was no saint, but nobody deserves to be locked in a tower. Dante asks, “Who said anything about a tower?” Ava covers and explains Nikolas declared the North Tower off-limits to everyone, even the staff, so she assumes that’s where Esme was. Dante relays they checked out the tower before, and it looked like Nikolas was hiding something, so they’ll check it again. Suddenly, Dante gets a call from an officer and says he’ll be right there.
