On today's General Hospital recap: Spencer tells Cameron and Joss he's back in town for good. Spencer gets a little flirty with Joss, so she pushes him into the pool to cool off. Joss introduces Trina to Spencer, both pretending not to have already met, though Trina is seriously angry.

When they're alone, Spencer apologizes to Trina, but she wants an explanation. Spencer says he lied because he didn't want Nikolas to know he was in town. He's back because of the divorce and asks if Trina can forgive him for lying to her. Trina warns him never to lie to her again.

Anna insists the pilot tell her what happened to Peter. The pilot says the hospital didn't give him clearance to land so he couldn't. He says Peter wasn't alone on the roof. Anna asks for a description of this other person. The pilot describes the person as a male in a suit. Police arrive to arrest the pilot for aiding Peter in his crimes.

Valentin figures the other person on the roof could be another of Peter's allies. Anna feels something doesn't add up.

Finn continues to worry about Popsicle Pete, but Liz says she doesn't feel badly for what happened. Liz wonders how to get Peter out of the basement now that the cameras in the stairwells are working again.
