(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — For the second time in a week, ABC has decided to air a different encore episode of one of their daytime soaps on Memorial Day than what was originally scheduled. 

This time around, the network has opted to re-air the May 4th, 2010 episode of “General Hospital,” in which Michael admits in court that he murdered Claudia, in place of the earlier announced encore of the January 29th, 2010 episode (in which Sonny shoots his own son). 

Last week, ABC has changed their mind about which episode of the soap to show on Monday, May 31st. In place of the originally scheduled repeat of the conclusion of “AMC’s” 40th anniversary, which first aired January 5th (and was supposed to be converted to HD for the airing), ABC has decided to re-broadcast the February 15th episode instead. That is the episode where the residents of Pine Valley learn of David’s marriage to Greenlee.

The encore episode of “One Life to Live” scheduled to air that day remains unchanged.

In case you missed these episodes the first time around, here is preview of what to expect:

  • “All My Children” Episode #10331 (original air date 02/15/10) — Greenlee’s sudden return from the dead sends shockwaves through the assembled guests, who soon take their leave with the exception of Ryan. Ryan’s speechless over Greenlee’s intention to marry David let alone on Valentine’s Day of all days. Ryan tells Greenlee he never stopped loving her and is dismayed she kept the fact that she survived the accident from him. Greenlee defends David, insisting he’s the one who’s going to take care of her now. Jack wants nothing more than to see David behind bars but Jesse points out he hasn’t really committed any crimes. Annie crashes the now non-wedding and is stunned to see Greenlee.
  • “One Life to Live” Episode #10656 (original air date 04/02/10) — David hides while Kim tells Clint she cheated on him and is leaving. Kim vows to get Clint back and find a way to destroy David. Starr reluctantly keeps Langston’s secret when Cole and Markko question her and Langston. Schuyler lures Gigi up to the cabin as Bo and Brody realize that Allison’s gun is missing. Bo tells Rex that Oliver is Sierra Rose’s father and Rex tells Bo he doesn’t know who his parents are. John tells Natalie that Marty is moving in with him. Allison tells Kelly and Todd that she went to California to murder Melinda but Melinda was already dead when she got there.
  • “General Hospital” Episode #12050 (original air date 05/04/10) — Michael delivers compelling testimony in the courtroom as his anguished loved ones look on. Judge Carroll reprimands Michael to jail, saying he’ll announce his sentence at the end of the week. Luke cautions Lulu that she’s headed down a rough road for standing by Dante. Johnny is determined to get revenge against Sonny. Spinelli tries to point out to Jason that no good would come from him killing Dante. Carly shares an emotional visit with a jailed Michael. Sonny arrives outside Michael’s jail cell.
