(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Fantasies become realities?

THIS WEEK ON: GENERAL HOSPITAL

Maxie and Johnny are “dating,” at least that’s what appearances are for when the two attend the Campbell’s Go Red Gala in Manhattan. Spinelli and Lulu know better, but it isn’t easy. Lady Jane is back in Port Charles and boy does she have a shock for Jax and Carly. She’s getting married! His name is Percy though. Lady Jane and Percy met while traveling abroad, but Jax is suspicious of their union and enlists Carly’s assistance in proving it. Rebecca likes to play with brothers it seems as she enjoys spending time around one Lucky Spencer. As if Nikolas’ obsession over her wasn’t enough. Luke and Ethan go to jail, but Tracy only bails one of them out. Gee, wonder who? 

The Inside Story: On Our Way to Florida
Sonny and Jason: Friends Again? On Monday, February 23, look for Jason to inform Sonny that he can have his business back once Spinelli is free and clear. In return? Jason is back to being an enforcer and that means its time to vacation in Florida. Well in the mob world a vacation is code for “It’s time for a killing.” Sam and Jason head to Florida after Sonny gets a lead on Anthony’s whereabouts. The cover? The duo pretend to be newlyweds at a tropical resort. The kicker? Anthony is still in Port Charles.  The target? Claudia.

A Closer Look: A World Without Maxie Jones
Can you imagine a world where Carly and Patrick are married? Robin’s living the life of a lonely spinster still mourning Stone? Or how about Mac being a downright drunk and Johnny being the big mob boss of Port Charles? Me either, but that is exactly what happens in Maxie’s dream in which she never received a not-so-dead BJ’s heart. In the special episode airing Tuesday, February 24, Maxie falls asleep in Spinelli’s bed and wonders what life would be like if she hadn’t lived. Would things be for the better or for the worse?
