On today's General Hospital recap: Tracy wakes up on Laura's couch the next day and explains what happened to Luke. Apparently Luke was in a cable car crash in Austria. Laura mentions checking in with Lucky. Tracy says the authorities identified his remains and gave her his personal effects. She blames herself for Luke's death and explains he got a tip about a scam in Austria.

Tracy says she told him she didn't want him to go back to that life. Kevin and Laura try to reassure her, but Tracy heads out to see her family. Laura breaks down in Kevin's arms. Laura apologizes, but Kevin says he understands her grief and how Luke was a large part of her life.

Bobbie stops Valentin from getting access to Peter, but he says he needs information. Bobbie tells him that Victor visited with Peter, which angers Valentin. Bobbie refuses to let Valentin in, then Alexis arrives and offers to keep an eye on him. Valentin tells Alexis that Victor paid Peter a visit and she agrees that it's concerning. Alexis mentions almost falling off the wagon the night before and he offers to be there for her if needed.

Curtis and Portia wake up together the morning after. Portia says it feels right this time, versus when they were together 20 years ago. Curtis wonders how they would have done things differently, but Portia says she wouldn't have changed the past. She feels everything they've done led them to now. Curtis tells her he's falling in love with her and Portia reciprocates. She wants them to focus forward and leave the past behind.

Nikolas notices an article in The Invader that makes him and Cassadine Industries look bad. Shawn interrupts to let Nikolas and Ava know he's now in charge of the paper. After Shawn leaves, Victor comments that Shawn's become a nuisance and asks if Nikolas wants him to handle things but both Nikolas and Ava refuse.

Kevin finds Nikolas and tells him that Luke died and he should check in with Laura. Kevin says they need to find Ethan, so Nikolas promises to reach out to him. Victor offers his condolences, which don't sit well with Kevin. Victor makes a comment about how he thought that Luke would go out in a blaze of glory.
