Will Ava risk ev­ery­thing to help a stranger?

ABC Soaps In Depth - - News -

There’s a new man in the pic­ture for GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL’s Ava, and he could cost her ev­ery­thing! Will she make a huge sac­ri­fice to help the mys­te­ri­ous stranger known only as Pa­tient 6?

Dan­ger Ahead?

“Ava is in­trigued by this man,” pre­views co-head­writer Shelly Altman, “be­cause he seems to have some re­ac­tion when she men­tions that she is from Port Charles!”

Adding to Ava’s cu­rios­ity is the fact that Pa­tient 6 is clearly be­ing kept at the fa­cil­ity against his will. Mind you, all of this is be­ing re­vealed via non-ver­bal com­mu­ni­ca­tion, as Pa­tient 6 seems un­able to speak! “Ava sees the way the at­ten­dants are treat­ing this man,” says co-head­writer Chris Van Et­ten. “He seems re­ally sort of down and out and un­re­spon­sive, and yet it seems to her that he might be strug­gling against that.”

Pa­tient 6 isn’t much help when it comes to his iden­tity. “He knows he is there against his will,” says Altman, “and be­comes in­creas­ingly aware of this. But he’s in the dark as to some of the mo­ti­va­tions that landed him there.”

This week, Pa­tient 6 gives Ava some-

thing which might un­lock his se­crets… but pur­su­ing the truth would come at a high price! “She has been warned that if she in­ter­feres with the other pa­tients, her treat­ment will end,” says Altman. “She made a deal with the devil to get here. But this is a chance for her to do the right thing!”

The se­cret that GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL’s Nathan has been keep­ing from the world will fi­nally come out this week… and when it does, it’ll be at the worst pos­si­ble mo­ment!

The Truth Comes Out!

With the launch party for the book sup­pos­edly penned by Man Lan­ders get­ting ever closer, Nathan is more than a lit­tle bit ner­vous! “He wants to be a good friend to Amy and con­tinue to help her,” says por­trayer Ryan Paevey, “but this has grown far be­yond what he ini­tially signed up for.”

And while his wife now knows the truth, she’s still not thrilled with the sit­u­a­tion. “Maxie has mixed feel­ings,” says co-head­writer Chris Van Et­ten. “She’s im­pressed by Nathan’s hero­ism and will­ing­ness to help Amy, but his in­volve-

ment with this girl with whom she has a scratchy past rubs her the wrong way.”

De­spite this, Maxie doesn’t want to see her hus­band charged with fraud if the truth comes out! “Maxie comes up with an idea that they hope might save the day,” says Van Et­ten. “Then again, this is an idea that Maxie came up with!”

By week’s end, things will go spec­tac­u­larly wrong in a way you’ll have to see to be­lieve… and the truth will be re­vealed at the worst pos­si­ble mo­ment! Once Nathan’s se­cret iden­tity comes to light, will he wind up in hot wa­ter?

Quinn has sug­gested Nathan ap­pear shirt­less at the book launch. How will she feel about the naked truth com­ing to light?

Maxie asked, “What could pos­si­bly go wrong?” Af­ter the party, they’ll all know the an­swer.
