Things are getting interesting on “General Hospital” this week, especially when it comes to the Jerome family. On the September 17 episode of GH, the man known as Derek Wells drew some suspension while Franco feared his life was ruined due to Heather Webber.
Derek/Julian (William DeVry) is a little over confident as far as his true identity goes. He believes his new face and new identity is enough for no one to be able to connect him as his true identity of Julian Jerome. The one thing Derek/Julian is worried about is the loose cannon known as Ava Jerome (Maura West). On Tuesday’s episode, Ava told Derek/Julian about her visit with Sonny (Maurice Benard) and her plans to throw a party with him. Derek/Julian is worried that she will blow their cover but Ava assured him that she knows what she is doing. She also told him about Sonny’s bipolar disorder which Derek/Julian felt could be used as an advantage. Not only is Sonny depressed but his is mentally vulnerable and right for the taking.
At the Greystone Manor, Shawn told Sonny about Julian Jerome which caused him to lose it once again with Shawn. Olivia (Lisa LoCiero) was there to calm him down. He told her about the Jerome family and how Ava and Kiki (Kristen Alderson) had no connection to the Jeromes. When Sonny mentioned that he met with Ava and she convinced him to throw the party for Morgan (Bryan Craig) and Kiki, she became suspicious of Ava’s intentions, but also felt concerned about Sonny and his current state of being.
Meanwhile, Morgan and Kiki became homeless as Monica kicked them out of the boathouse. Morgan told Kiki to ask for help from her new father Silas (Michael Easton). Kiki said she had no interest in getting to know Silas and does not want to bond with him. She questioned his judgement since he was once involved with her mother who she is still upset with for lying about who her father really was in the first place. As they talked about Silas, he showed up at the boathouse and told Kiki that he just wanted to reach out and say hello. He seemed awkward in the moment but also seemed to realize that his daughter needed space and time to get use to him as his father. Ava then showed up and told both Morgan and Kiki about the party that is being planned for them. Kiki still doesn’t want anything to do with Ava, but agreed to the party as long as she could invite Silas, who agreed to the invitation.
At the Metro Court, Franco (Roger Howarth) caught Carly (Laura Wright) and Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) trying to sneak into his hotel room. When confronted, they told him that they heard someone in his room. Franco, in order to protect Heather, told them that hey had someone in the room who they were led to believe was a prostitute. The information made Carly show some jealousy and caused Franco to later blame Heather for ruining his life and any chance he thought he had with Carly.
Later at the docks, Carly and Felix overheard Derek/Julian and Ava talking which made Carly suspicious of what Mr. Derek Wells was up to, especially after he confronted them and told them that his conversation with Ava was innocent.
Elsewhere in Port Charles, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) had some reservations about Silas, but later told Sam (Kelly Monaco) that she had no objections with her going out on a date with Silas and Heather finally got to take a bit of her BLT.
Who will be the first to unmask Derek Wells as Julian Jerome?
