The heart always has its own way of thinking, even when the mind knows what’s right and what’s wrong. On the September 10 episode of “General Hospital”, Carly (Laura Wright) wondered if Franco (Roger Howarth) is really a changed man or wether he is just playing more mind games.
While Carly informed Kiki (Kristen Alderson) at the Greystone Manor that Franco was a free man, Franco broke the news to both Tracy (Jane Elliot) and Ava (Maura West) at the Quartermaine Mansion. Both were shocked and even more surprised when Franco revealed that his tumor got him off because Diane was able to convince the court that the tumor made him do the things that he did. He then kicked Ava out of the Quartermaine mansion and when she tried to use the leverage she thought she had over him, he confessed to Tracy that he was the one who poisoned the relish. He told Ava that he never cared about her and that his heart belonged to someone else just in time of Carly to walk in and overhear him. Later, in private, Carly told Franco that she doesn’t believe he could have romantic feelings for anyone. Franco wants to prove he is a changed man and told Carly he needed her to believe in him, but Carly is hesitant because she doesn’t know wether Franco is playing another game or wether he actually feels something for her.
There was a lot of internal conflict at the Greystone Manor when Olivia (Lisa LoCiero) Morgan (Bryan Craig) and Michael (Chad Duell) brought Sonny (Maurice Benard) home. Sonny was still depressed and didn’t want anyone taking care of him but Olivia was persistent as she took him to his room and convinced him to take his medication. She told Sonny he could hate her all he wants, but she doesn’t want to lose someone else she cares about. For Morgan, he is feeling guilty for Connie’s death and told Sonny in a father and son bonding moment. Morgan feels Connie’s death is his fault because he asked Sonny to keep the secret about Kiki. Morgan realized that Kiki does not really want him and realized how much Sonny does have his back. Sonny told his son that he needed to be there for his son to prove that he will always be by his side. And for Michael, he is realizing how important family is and told Kiki that he knows how much Morgan really cares about her. He will not jeopardize his family bonds for any feelings they have towards one another.
Speaking of family bonds, Sam (Kelly Monaco) encountered a distracted Silas (Michael Easton) at the hospital. She asked him about his daughter Kiki. Silas told her that he doesn’t know if Kiki wants a relationship with him and has given her the space to talk to him when she is ready. Sam was also surprised that Silas would be involved with a woman like Ava. Silas implied that he was dangerous which sparked Sam’s curiosity as to why a man so good with children could be considered dangerous.
Meanwhile, at Wyndemere, Britt(Kelly Thiebaud) instantly sensed something was wrong with her baby. She reluctantly allowed Sabrina to take the baby to the hospital. She was very concerned about the baby and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) was there by her side as she began to question her motherhood because she allowed Sabrina to take the baby to the hospital and wasn’t there herself. Back at the hospital, Silas was there to work on Britt’s baby as Sam watched on and admired his work as a doctor. Britt was finally able to arrive at the hospital in time for Silas to tell her the baby was okay.
Elsewhere in Port Charles, Ava got desperate with Tracy after Franco kicked her out of the mansion. She told Tracy that she needed ELQ, Tracy responded by telling her that her family and company were better off without her. Felix showed concern for Britt and wanted Brad to step up as a father. Brad slipped and said he had no connection to the baby and was just a sperm donor. Later Felix made an observation that the baby looked nothing like Brad. At Kelly’s, Taylor returned and asked TJ about his relationship with Molly. TJ told her he still had hope and later when Molly and Rafe showed up to see TJ wiping water off of Taylor, TJ got his wish as Molly agreed to get back together as both Rafe and Taylor jealously watched the happy reunion.
