THIS WEEK ON: GENERAL HOSPITAL

On Tuesday, May 26, Maxie tries to convince herself Spinelli is the right guy for her despite her attraction to Johnny. Claudia supplies Johnny with a gun to protect himself from Sonny. A threatening Sonny orders Johnny to stay away from Olivia. Johnny and Olivia continue their flirtation but agree to put things on hold as they both don’t want to be together for the wrong reasons. Believing she’s carrying his child, Ric asks Claudia to take off with him. Lucky and Elizabeth grow more suspicious of Rebecca. Elizabeth faces off with Rebecca on Wednesday, May 27. Rebecca places a cryptic call. Carly turns to Kelly for help (and proof) when an overly-cautious Jax refuses to be intimate with her for the baby’s safety.

Jax pleads with Michael to give his mother a chance on Wednesday, May 27. Claudia subtly probes Michael to see if he remembers any of her visits. Michael learns that Sonny and Claudia are married. Michael turns to Jason for answers about his accident on Thursday, May 28. Jason later teams up with Sam to get the truth once and for all. Carly balks when Jax implies that it would be best for her to give Michael the room he needs…away from her, for now. Michael is clearly fond of Claudia. Carly is hurt when she overhears Michael’s enthusiasm over Claudia’s pregnancy. Sonny thinks Claudia could be just the medicine Michael needs. Jason and Sam track down Fredo.

Robin has no trouble bonding with Emma on Wednesday, May 27 and is obviously thrilled to have her daughter in her arms. Patrick is ecstatic to have his family back.
