(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Desperate crimes calls for desperate measures.

THIS WEEK ON: GENERAL HOSPITAL

“If I am pregnant, I need you to claim to be my baby’s father,” says Carly to Jason while awaiting results of her pregnancy test (Carly had sex with her ex-husband, Sonny Corinthos, and her current husband, Jasper “Jax” Jacks, on the same night). Jax confronts Carly after an argument with Sonny in which Sonny claims he could be the father of Carly’s baby as well. Jerry holds Johnny at gun point in an effort to get Anthony to back off Alexis. Nikolas threatens to reveal Claudia’s secret involvement in Michael’s shooting to Jason if any harm comes to Alexis or her family. Carly eases Jax’s mind about her and Sonny. Leyla and Spinelli grow closer. Anna and Patrick discuss how Robin’s childhood may have effected her views on marriage and parenthood. Anna stuns Robin with her new view.

The Inside Story: Introducing Dr. Matt Hunter

Just days after joining the staff of General Hospital, Dr. Matt Hunter (played by “Days of our Lives” alum Jason Cook) takes a liking to Lulu after her visit with Spinelli in the hospital. After a brush off from Lulu, Logan lets Matt in on a business proposition, but Maxie warns Matt to stay away from Logan. Nikolas, Leyla, Matt and Nadine work together in figuring out if the drugs given to a patient treated at the clinc were actually placebos. Matt informs Nikolas that counterfeit drugs were a lucrative business for organized crime.
