General Hospital Spoilers tease Heather Webber (Alley Mills) has had her plan mapped out for months, and Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) wasn’t entirely unaware of it either. He knew he couldn’t trust her, and he suspected she was always angling to throw him under the bus. He can tell she wants to have their daughter, Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) all to herself. Will he allow that? It’s hard to say. This jaunt out of Spring Ridge might have been just enough to satisfy his itch to see Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West) and Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner) again.
For a psychopath like Ryan, that might be enough for him. He’s spent months ruminating over what it would be like to confront Ava. He could spend years reveling in the memory of this moment. So when Heather makes herself and Esme out to be the victim of Ryan’s crimes, he just might take the bait. Besides, Heather is going back to prison, too. This could work to his advantage.
General Hospital Spoilers — Heather Claims She’s a Victim
When Heather tells the PCPD that Ryan forced her and Esme to come with him as his hostages,they’re probably going to buy it. They might want to corroborate that statement with Esme though, which is going to be rather tough seeing as how she has fled the scene. The police can’t be certain that she ran off because she was trying to escape Ryan; she could have fled because she knew the police would be coming to collect her.
GH Spoilers Hint Esme Gets Away
Esme doesn’t want to be involved with Ryan or Heather. She didn’t want to break out of prison either. It’s starting to look more like the Esme she was prior to losing her memory may have been under a heavy spell at Daddy’s hand. Perhaps his love came with the price of coercion and a fragile and vulnerable Esme took the bait.
This time around, he doesn’t appear to have that effect on her; she doesn’t remember her emotional attachment to him at all. This Esme just wants to do the right thing and secure a stable future for her child. Esme is going to book it on foot the first chance she gets to get away from these crazed maniacs.
General Hospital Spoilers — It Won’t Stop There
Of course, throwing Ryan to the police as the mastermind behind this jailbreak might look genius on Heather’s part, but Ryan saw it coming. He knew she would pretend she didn’t know he wasn’t locked in, and he knew she would blame him for having the knife that killed the officer at Spring Ridge and forcing them to come along for his crazy ride to Ava’s. What he didn’t know was Ava’a husband, Nikolas Cassadine (Adam Huss), was dead in the stables outside of Wyndemere. Heather discovers his body while scoping out the grounds before she heads into the main house, and she’s going to pin it on Ryan. Ava won’t dare clear his name; will Esme? Stay tuned for more GH news and spoilers just ahead.
