General Hospital: Week In Review, August 13-17, 2012. Impending Mayhem

General Hospital was rife with angst and the portent of mayhem during the week of August 13-17.  Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Josslyn were admitted to General Hospital after Jerry (Sebastian Roche) injected them with a possible lethal substance.  The attorney and little girl, both recovered from previous serious illness, were on the brink of death from the injection.  Eventually, they began to recover.

Jerry’s latest plot against Port Charles residents is foreshadowed when it is revealed that the injections were a vaccination.  With the assistance of Ewen (Nathin Butler) and Joe Jr., (Richard Steinmetz) Jerry plots to release germ warfare in the city, but the vaccination will save Alexis and Joss.  If Jerry does not recover from his deteriorating health condition, he may end up in General Hospital along with his victims, soon.

One relationship dissolves while others evolve.  Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton), still estranged over the loss of Sam’s baby and her friendship with John (Michael Easton), plan for divorce.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) pops the question to Kate (Kelly Sullivan), despite her DID.  Lulu (Julie Marie Berman) and Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) find out that they are pregnant, and Joe pushes Trey (Erik Valdez) to propose to Kristina.  Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) reach a new high in their friendship when the head nurse does not report Patrick’s drug thefts to Monica.

Heather (Robin Mattson) blackmails Todd (Roger Howarth) to get her released from Ferncliff.  Todd counter-blackmails her into silence by threatening to expose Steve’s involvement in the Memphis death.  They reach a compromise.  Heather will not tell the truth about the baby and Todd’s involvement.  He will not inform on Steve (Scott Reeves) to the Memphis Police.

Luke (Anthony Geary) remains a patient at General Hospital after being shot by Heather.  While discussing his abduction and shooting with Dante and Lulu, Lulu is touched to learn that Luke’s thoughts were of her as he contemplated death.  Luke divulges important clues about Heather’s co-conspirator who brought food to the cabin.  The man in the mask probably has a daughter, judging from his reaction to Luke’s comments about Lulu.  Also, the masked man was likely wealthy because he wore expensive shoes… two observations that describe Todd perfectly.  (And as everyone knows, the important things in life are all about the shoes.)
