Ava Jerome (Maura West) got an eyeful on Thursday’s episode of General Hospital when she finds Carly (Laura Wright) gagged and knocked out in the trunk of “Kevin’s” (Jon Lindstrom) car. Just then, Carly begins to open her eyes, but Ava is stunned when she finds “Kevin” standing behind her. When Ava is trying to process what she just saw and her groom’s reaction to the sight of Carly in the truck of his car, he tosses it off, and lets her know he has a handle on everything and to go back to their motel room and wait for him.
Later, in their motel room in Niagara falls, Ava considers calling 911, but in that moment decides against, and begins to think that “Kevin” has had a mental breakdown as he has in the past. When he shows up, “Kevin”asks Ava to trust him, But when Ava asks why Carly was in the trunk of his car, he responds that it’s a wedding gift for his bride-to-be.
Meanwhile, the manhunt is on for Ryan Chamberlain as the real Kevin Collins has now been admitted to General Hospital. Chase (Josh Swickard) fills Lulu (Emme Rylan) in on what is going down and she finally remembers it was Ryan, not Franco (Roger Howarth), who stabbed her, and she was his victim when Ryan hypnotized her to believe Franco was the serial killer.
Laura (Genie Francis)is on her way to Niagara Falls with Jason (Steve Burton), who is going to find Carly and bring her home as he is worried sick about his best friend. Cameron (William Lipton) who is in the Falls with Joss (Eden McCoy)and Oscar (Garren Stitt), who has had a major seizure, runs into Ryan, but doesn’t know it, until he has a phone call with Liz (Rebecca Herbst) who fills him in that Franco is not the murderer, but Ryan is. Cameron has the tip to help all, with the name of the motel where Ryan is at. Liz phones Laura and she and Jason head off to find the motel..
When Jason and Laura arrive at the cabin, Laura stays in the car as Jason grabs his gun and heads to Ryan’s room. When an unnerved Ava tries to tell “Kevin” that he must let Carly go and bring her back to Port Charles safely before they get married, he informs Ava there is nothing for her to worry about. He has already taken Carly five miles east of the motel. Next thing you know, the scene transitions to a shot of Carly lifeless on the ground. We go back to Jason, who kicks down the door to Ryan’s room with his gun drawn.
