General Hospital Spoilers: High School Drama On Full Display, Willow Faces Off With Valentin and Nina
Apparently when Jordan Ashford (Briana Nicole Henry) claimed Ryan Chamberlain (AKA: Not-Kevin, played by Jon Lindstrom) was found, she meant his hand. Ava shows she’s smarter than others by asking what hand. Julian Jerome (William DeVry) is present for this and totally confused as to what Ava means. When she explains the reasoning (Not-Kevin isn’t dead if it’s not his dominant hand), Julian thinks that’s totally sick. Ava’s basically, “Duh! This is Not-Kevin we’re talking about” and insists that he is still alive out there somewhere, and she’s going to be ready. Jordan, for her part, seems to confirm Ava’s assumption and says she’ll do what she can, but it might not be in her hands much longer (no pun intended). With the US/Canadian authorities satisfied that the hand was definitely Not-Kevin’s, it’ll ultimately be up to the DA to decide if the investigation goes on in Port Charles. Julian, by the way, is worried about Ava and thinks she’s setting herself up for trouble in more ways than once. Besides, it’s not like she can just sit around armed and waiting at home all day. Ava’s response is basically “watch me.” She’s determined Not-Kevin will pay.
Anna needs hazard pay
It seems that Anna has now become a bit of a matchmaker in Port Charles. At least, where it comes to Peter August (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms). She gets alone time with each of them, where the subject of their possible love connection dominates the conversation. This is, of course, not cool with either of them. They do, however, each admit their feelings for the other to Anna, both insisting it’s pointless because the other’s already made it clear there’s nothing there. Anna looks like she can’t even with the stupid after Peter echoes what Maxi had just told her and pushes him to make a move. It almost backfires, as Maxie gets asked out by Chet Driscoll (Chris Van Etten) at Peter’s advice. She, keeping Anna’s words in mind, turns Chet down and says as much to Peter. Give this woman some bonus pay for dealing with that kind of middle-school drama.
Who’s the problem here?
Speaking of childish drama, poor Willow has to face off with Valentin and Nina after their last conversation. They’re upset to learn Willow will have a union rep there, and suggest maybe they should get a lawyer there, too. Things eventually get worked out so only the union rep is present, but things still turn ugly. This is despite Willow’s efforts to apologize and smooth things over. Nina twists Willow’s words during their last confrontation and Valentin isn’t happy that Charlotte can’t be moved into that advanced program sooner. The bottom line? They believe Willow is letting her feelings toward them dictate her behavior with Charlotte and it’s all on record, so they want people keeping a closer eye on classroom happenings. Willow is distressed and denies to the principal later that this is the case. He tells her it happens to the best of them, but she’d best exercise caution from here on out. After all, donors like Valentin are very important to the school. Something tells us Willow doesn’t have much to worry about, though.
After Lulu’s breakdown, Laura Webber (Genie Francis) tells her it might be best if Lulu takes a vacation. She offers the use of her flat in France, but Lulu thinks this is just running away. Plus, Valentin wouldn’t approve of taking Charlotte Cassadine (Scarlett Fernandez), even if Lulu wanted to disrupt Charlotte’s routine. Laura puts her foot down and insists that she will take Lulu’s place here with Charlotte until Lulu is ready to come back. Mom’s apparently persuasive, so Lulu agrees.
Later on, Lulu meets with Valetin and Nina to let them know what’s up. Well, not the personal drama part, but just the “I won’t be there a while” part. Valentin objects, but she says she’s obviously not planning to bring Charlotte along. Nina looks like a kid at Christmas, which Lulu snarks about. She informs them that just because she’s gone, doesn’t mean they’re having total free reign. Grandma will be her official stand-in for the duration of her trip. And Valentin’s look at that bit of news is totally priceless. We can’t wait to see Laura put them in their place.
