THIS WEEK ON: GENERAL HOSPITAL

Lulu asks Carly to hire Johnny at the Metro Court. Maxie and Spinelli find Johnny working at Jake’s as a janitor.

Nikolas pays his respects to Monica on Emily’s birthday.

Afterward, Claudia plans on seducing Ric in an effort to find out what he’s been up to with her father. Meanwhile, Sonny is looming nearby while Claudia and Ric enjoy their intimate moment. Will Sonny catch Claudia in a lie or does fate hold all the cards? Claudia puts the pressure on Anthony. Sonny leaves Kate with a promise. Olivia warns Sonny to stay away from Kate or else.

A Closer Look: Reunited Acquaintances
Sam and Jason are back in good graces, and this week the two work even closer than ever to bring down the Zacchara organization.

Jason, however, is not completely sold on the idea and warns her to be careful. Later, Sam meets up with a concerned Ric, who informs Jason that life isn’t as safe with Sonny around as he thinks.
