In the upcoming episode of General Hospital (GH) on Thursday, January 4, viewers will witness a mix of emotions for Curtis Ashford. He is faced with an imminent experimental procedure that could potentially allow him to walk again.
However, Curtis is aware that there is also a chance that the procedure might fail, leading to disappointment. Meanwhile, Portia Robinson has exciting plans for the year 2024. She aims to kick off the new year in a positive way by spending some quality romantic time with Curtis. Little does she know that Curtis has a surprise romantic gesture planned for her. In another part of town, Ava Jerome is curious about Nikolas Cassadine's intentions regarding Esme Prince.
Ever since Ryan Chamberlain received the punishment he deserved, Nikolas has suggested to Ava that they should ensure Esme faces the consequences for her actions as well. While it is uncertain what Nikolas intends to do, it is possible that he might plot to put Esme in prison or come up with another strategy to get her out of the picture. Meanwhile, Laura Collins discovers something about Esme, potentially finding a glove that matches the one found at Wyndemere.
This revelation sends Carly into a rage, further aggravating the consequences of Nina's actions. At the church, Sonny unexpectedly encounters Cyrus Renault, leading to tense moments between them. Sonny tells Cyrus that now is not the time to push him, and Cyrus assumes that Nina confessed as he had urged her to. Sonny initially doubted Nina's claim that she intended to confess, but he may soon realize that Cyrus gave Nina an ultimatum after she inadvertently shared her secret with him. Lastly, Josslyn Jacks and Dex Heller come across an intoxicated Adam Wright. Adam is overwhelmed by the pressure from his parents, and the alcohol exacerbates his emotional state.
Tune in to General Hospital to find out how these storylines unfold and to witness the dramatic events that await the characters in Thursday's episode.
