On today’s General Hospital recap for March 24, 2023: Esme is skeptical, Sonny doesn't mince words, Spencer mulls over his strategy, Laura receives an unwelcome visitor, and, Cameron runs into Josslyn.
Esme is skeptical when Spencer makes her a tea that promotes lactation. He tells her that she's the one who drugs people. Laura interrupts and reminds him that she is their guest. Esme says she will not stay where she is unwelcome and neither will Ace. Spencer apologizes and answers a knock at the door. It's Victor and he says he's there to collect his nephews. Laura tells him to leave and threatens to call security but Spencer tells her that he will handle it and asks to speak to Victor in the hall.
After they leave Laura apologizes to Esme. Esme admits that Victor gives her a bad feeling. Laura tells her that her fears are justified because Victor is a bad man. She promises Esme that she is protected there and Esme wonders if that includes being protected from Spencer.
Out in the hall, Spencer lashes out at Victor for coming over the way he did. Victor insists that he and the baby belong with him because they are Cassadines and no one will get in the way of him taking who and what he wants. Spencer asks if that means him as well. He tells Victor that's a complicated situation but everyone wants to protect Ace. He shares his plan to put Esme back in jail and get custody of the baby. Victor asks if he still needs his help. Spencer says that he does but they can't talk about it there.
Spencer goes back inside and apologizes to Esme before leaving to go pick up Trina for Cam's party. After he leaves Laura tells Esme about Cameron getting into Stanford and Esme is happy she didn't ruin his life with what she did. Esme knows that her amnesia doesn't absolve her and doesn't understand why Laura is letting her stay there. Laura tells her that she wants Ace safe and not living in prison and tells her she knows how it feels to be separated from a child. Esme thinks that Spencer is still trying to take Ace from her and Laura tells her that he has a lot of reasons to distrust her but that she is trying to and hopes to get there. She asks Esme if she can accept that she really wants what's best for the baby and her.
Esme admits that she has doubts because Laura is Spencer's grandmother. Laura tells her that she will take the first leap of faith. She tells Esme that she is going out and gives her some money in case of an emergency. She reminds her that she's not a prisoner. Esme asks her how she knows she won't take off. Laura replies that she knows that Esme wants what's best for Ace and that is staying where he is. She wishes her a lovely morning before heading out. Esme talks to the baby about if they should stay or go. She doesn't know if she can trust anyone and fears they all want to take the baby from her. She decides to leave and packs a bag but as she opens the door to leave Cameron is on the other side!
Trina comes home and is surprised to see Marshall there. He asks why she is sneaking around her own home and she says she's not sure it is her home. He tells her that she will always have a home there. He agrees that it doesn't feel like home right now and talks to her about being proud of Epiphany and not knowing where he fits in. They talk about Cameron leaving but when she mentions Spencer she thinks it was a mistake because she knows how everyone feels about him. Marshall can tell she is upset about something and asks her to talk to him about it.
Trina admits that she is upset about Spencer living with Esme. She tells him the situation and that she doesn't trust Esme. Marshall thinks Esme should be in prison and is mad that she isn't.

She tells him that Spencer's worth it and that Spencer makes her feel like she is the best thing that ever happened to him. She admits that she doesn't like seeing him look like a family with Esme and tells Marshall that she and Spencer are more than friends. He asks if she has kept quiet because she's not sure it's what she wants.
Trina tells him that she's sure about wanting to be with Spencer but everything else is confusing and complicated. He tells her that she has her family and that it's not determined by DNA. He promises to be there for anything she wants to talk about even if it's Spencer. He advises her that she may want to remove herself from Spencer's life if it stays so complicated. The doorbell rings and Marshall is less than thrilled to see that it's Spencer.
