Nina Instructs [Spoiler] to Turn Carly and Drew Into the SEC — Plus, Holly Tells Anna and Robert About Victor’s Plan
Tuesday, April 25, 2023: Today on General Hospital, Tracy is informed of Michael and Willow's nuptials, Carly and Michael break bad news to Willow, and Diane fumes over Robert and Holly's using her.
In Robert’s office, Holly interrupts Robert and Diane as they are about to kiss. Robert is surprised to see Holly and rushes over and embraces her. Holly fills them in on going to South America, where she ran into Felicia and Tracy, and they worked to save Ethan. Diane asks Holly who her plastic surgeon is as she looks good as new. Holly says she knows she had some explaining to do.
Diane assumes she fooled Victor into believing she was burned to a crisp, just like she faked drugging Robert to steal the Ice Princess, and they cast her as their stooge witness so Victor would believe everything. Robert says they never intended to use her. Holly explains this bought her time to find her son and kept the necklace out of Victor’s hands. Diane notes their plan still failed, as Victor has the actual Ice Princess, and taken hostages. Diane suggests next time Robert trust her a little more, and use her a little less.
Diane storms out, and Holly feels like she took that personally. Robert says a lot has happened since she left, and he and Diane were talking about a dinner they had last night when she interrupted them. They sit down and Robert brings her up to date on Laura going after Victor. Holly says both he and Anna need to hear what Ethan told her.
