“By the time I’m through, I won’t be the villain of this story; I’ll be the hero.” Oh, that Liesl Obrecht knows how to connive her way out of corners with style, doesn’t she? The GENERAL HOSPITAL baddie had a master plan to evade prison and it was a whopper! Late, late into the night, Dante and Lulu were bringing baby Ben home for the first time to his new home. When they opened the door, Olivia jumped up with gigantic “welcome home” sign and more energy than the average person has at three in the morning. Rather than put the cutie patootie right to bed, they sat up with him, for a spell and grappled with the issue of whether or not to rename him. Finally, the verdict came in. “Rocco Falconeri,” it is.
Just as they were calling it night, Dante’s phone rang. It was Obrecht calling from behind bars, saying she had a statement for him and only him. Against his better judgment, he complied. When he arrived, she instructed him to drop the charges against her because she had something he and his wife desperately wanted. Dante and Lulu had their son back and, as he saw it, they didn’t need anything else. Obrecht smiled confidently and said cryptically, “How about your OTHER child?”
Since learning that Det. Sexypants was the son she gave birth to but gave to her sister, Madeline, when he was an infant, Obrecht was champing at the bit to tell Nathan that she was his mother. Madeline argued that nothing good could come from it, but Obrecht thought of a few practical reasons who he should know the truth. Like, what if Nathan and Britt met, hit it off and then slept together, not knowing they were siblings?
It was almost as if Obrecht had a hidden camera in Nathan’s apartment because that’s pretty much what was playing out at that exact moment! Oh, minus the slept together part. Not that it wasn’t heading in that direction, because it was! They were both drunk and hurting and about to lock lips when Maxie appeared in her jammies. Britt caught her up on the events surrounding Dante and Lulu’s biological son, which made her giddy with happiness. With “the mood” broken, they went to sleep, with Nathan in the bed and Britt on the sofa.
Although it was pushing three a.m., Luke was chatting it up with Sonny, weaving a white lie to cover his tush about a conversation with Ric. Little did he know that the doodie was about to hit the fan because Spencer was telling his father, Nikolas, that he heard his Uncle Luke telling some man (Julian) that “they had to get Uncle Sonny.” How far would Luke go to insure Spencer keeps his mouth shut? We’ll find out soon enough!
Next week on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Dante shares Obrecht’s news with Lulu, Nikolas makes Liz an offer she can’t refuse, and Ned returns to Port Charles. Don’t forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!
