Happy New Year, General Hospital! Everybody who hasn't been abducted by Franco, take a celebratory sip of champagne -- not so fast, Sam! And Carly. And Lulu. Seriously, Franco goes on a kidnapping binge in the first few days of the year, and it's going to throw all of Port Charles into chaos. Not surprisingly, it's going to be Jason who takes it upon himself to save the day. This is what he does. And considering Franco's made this whole criminal crusade all about Jason anyway, it makes sense. He'll have some help in the form of Dominic, though. It'll be interesting to see how that partnership works.
In fact, the whole Franco affair is going to come to an explosive climax this month, and we sure do mean that literally. Look for a big warehouse explosion by mid-month -- we can tell you not everybody pulled out of the rubble will be alive. When it's all said and done, Jason will get a chilling ultimatum, one that may change everything we know about Jason, going forward.
Meanwhile, just because a psycho artist is kidnapping women and blowing things up doesn't mean the business of certain undercover cops doesn't continue. Dominic is still hot on Sonny's trail, and he's determined to get the proof he needs that Sonny killed Claudia. Of course, the closer he gets, the closer he comes to inadvertently revealing Michael as Claudia's real killer. You know Michael..his BROTHER. Except they don't know that..yet. But how much will it complicate things when Sonny tells Dominic he wants to give him the business?
