Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) might have come back from his near death experience a temporarily changed man, but it's easier for a leopard to change his spots, than for a sleazy lawyer to go legit on General Hospital!
I'm hearing Ric will hatch a nasty plot to keep "Jake" (Billy Miller) away from Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst). Could it involve Rebecca Budig's new mystery character? Let's just say if you play that hunch at the ponies, you'd win the purse.
Prince Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) knows the truth about "Jake's" identity. Will he come clean? Look for the newly dark royal to have a chat with his cousin Sam (Kelly Monaco) about the amnesiac.
Just what happened to Pat, the eldest Spencer offspring? Not quite sure, but her biracial daughter is on her way to town and she wants revenge.
Avery's custody will be decided this week. Can Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Michael (Chad Duell) ever go back to being father and son after the fallout? Watch for Carly (Laura Wright) to keep playing mediator.
Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and Ned (Wally Kurth) tell their loved ones about the baby this week. Will Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and the Quartermaines actually buy Liv being knocked up by the preppy rocker?
One thing is certain, this baby better make it to term. LoCicero was explicit in the most recent issue of ABC Soaps in Depth about not wanting to play any sort of "pregnant mama in turmoil" arc, since she's preggars in real life!
Julian Jerome (William deVry) should be concerned with the paternity of Olivia's baby. Instead, he's all about protecting his infant niece from being used as a pawn in Michael's war against Sonny. Didn't Julian plan to kill Ava a few months back? Siblings.
Silas (Michael Easton) and Ava (Maura West) will continue to grow closer as he nurses her back to health. Could old feelings resurface for the doc and the gallery girl?
Those two entertaining wackadoodles, Nina (Michelle Stafford) and Franco (Roger Howarth), will continue their nuthouse romance. Can they actually have a future together?
