On today's General Hospital recap: Brook Lynn tells everyone that Austin delivered Maxie's baby and is now working at the hospital. Monica explains that Austin must be Jimmy Lee and Charity's son. Scotty declares Austin to be Edward's grandson. He claims he has all the DNA and all the proof that Austin is a Quartermaine descendent.
Valentin points out that Austin's status means he's entitled to some voting shares, but Michael disagrees. Ned says Austin has no claim since Edward cut Jimmy Lee and his descendants from his estate.
Austin explains how Jimmy Lee died six months ago, which is why he's here to stake his claim. Austin feels what was rightfully his father's is rightfully his. Ned says Edward's will was probated years ago and the Holt descendants have no legal standing.
Austin says he will contest Edward's will and let a judge decide his rights. Scotty says he filed papers challenging Edward's decision to split the shares the way he did.
Monica says it was Edward's right and Brook Lynn says they can't change Edward's wishes. Valentin says they can't continue with the vote until the issue has been settled.
Austin says he's here to vindicate his father and take his rightful seat at the table. He claims he wants to get to know everyone and spend time with his family.

Maxie says it's too hard to be around the baby, which is why she wants to leave town until Peter is caught. Nina still thinks they should bring Valentin into the loop, but Maxie disagrees. Nina says Maxie has an army at her side to fight Peter, but Maxie doesn't want anyone else in danger. Maxie thanks Nina for keeping her secret.
