Last week on “General Hospital,” Patrick (Jason Thompson) was fired from GH after reporters claimed that he let Rafe die. Sam (Kelly Monaco) immediately became suspicious of Nina (Michelle Stafford). Maxie (Kirsten Storms) surprised family and Nathan (Ryan Peavy) with an announcement that she is marrying Levi (Zachary Garred). Ava (Maura West) convinces Julian (William deVry) to help her escape from Sonny (Maurice Benard). Danger led to passion for Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) and Silas (Michael Easton) and Sam broke up.
The week of July 28 will be explosive as confessions are made and truths are exposed. As Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) continues to worry about the disappearance of Spencer, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) is tempted to come clean about her plan. Brad (Parry Chen) of all people tries to convince Britt to do the right thing. Has Britt’s plan to win back Nik backfired?
Silas and Sam’s breakup is Nina’s delight. After Sam catches Silas and his wife in a close moment, she assumes he has moved on. Nina has a big surprise for Silas, which involves more deceit as she drugs and rapes him. Sam turns to Sonny for help in finding out who was on the roof the night she and Patrick had their conversation. Sam enlists the help of Patrick to expose Nina’s lies. But will they be successful?
Franco (Roger Howarth) continues to be an issue for Sonny and it looks as though he will be pulled into one of Ava’s plans. Ava begs Franco to help her get her hands on the incriminating recording. She throws Franco’s jealousy of Sonny’s relationship with Carly in his face. Franco is caught doing something.
An explosion rocks Port Charles this week and the aftermath leads Julian on a wrath of revenge. Jordan finds her life in danger when her cover is blown. Julian has a secret and he shares it with Jordan. She then shares her lead with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna). Ava informs Julian about her latest deal with Franco. Sonny gets a major surprise when Julian confronts him with the truth about A.J.’s death.
Elsewhere in Port Charles, Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) get closer. Nina encourages Nathan to fight for Maxie. Ned later overhears Tracy (Jane Elliot) talking to Luke. Alice gets a surprise visit from WWE star David Otunga.
Down the road: Julian confesses to Alexis. Will she still stay with him? Nathan shares his feeling for Maxie with her in an attempt to stop her from marrying Levi. Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) returns, but will her return lead her back into the arms of Patrick? The person responsible for putting Rafe up to causing the accident is revealed. The identity of the person will be surprising.
