Here’s a list of some of the best plots on General Hospital in the previous 10 years.
Port Charles Hotel Fire (2004): The Quartermaines and Cassadines had agreed to share this old treasure worth millions of dollars. The treasure was auctioned off at the Port Charles Hotel, owned by Edward Quartermaine. Before the auction, additional security was installed in the hotel but the hotel’s old wiring couldn’t handle it. Edward was informed by the electrician that it could possibly spark a fire. After the auction, it was discovered the treasure had been stolen and everyone was trapped when the old hotel’s wiring started a fire in the basement that spread through the walls. Many of the main characters were trapped in the hotel and some had to be rescued by helicopter from the roof.
Metro Court Hotel Hostage Crisis (Feb. 2007): Wanting something in the hotel’s safe, Jerry Jacks and his hired band of thugs took the people hostage who were inside the Metro Court hotel. Jerry Jacks shouldn’t be confused with his brother Jasper Jacks, who goes by Jacks instead of by his first name Jasper. Alan Quartermaine had a heart attack inside the hotel, and after some time Jerry finally released him, but Alan collapsed outside the hotel. Not getting treatment soon enough, Alan later died in the hospital.
Michael goes to live with the Quartermaines (2009): After Carly tried so hard to keep Michael from the Quartermaines, she actually sent him to go live with them after he woke from the coma. She did this because he had uncontrollable anger issues that seemed to be directed at her and she couldn’t handle it since she was having a high risk pregnancy. She didn’t want Michael living with Sonny since he was married to Claudia, so the Quartermaines seemed like the safest choice. Since Michael didn’t grow up as a Quartermaine, it was interesting to see him living there. It was rather funny to see Sonny, Carly, Kristina, and Morgan all come and go in the mansion as much as they pleased. At one point, Michael drove his new car even though he didn’t have a license yet with Morgan with him. It brought back memories of A.J. and Jason’s car accident, especially since Michael pointed out to Morgan the tree that A.J. hit, but surprisingly Michael and Morgan arrived back at the mansion safely.
Elizabeth‘s son Jake dies (2011): Jason was the biological father of Jake, but Elizabeth and Lucky raised him. Jake snuck out of Elizabeth’s house and before she knew it he was hit by a car. It was later determined that Luke was the driver, that he never saw Jake, and was unaware that he’d hit a child. Carly and Jasper Jacks daughter, Josslyn, needed a kidney transplant, and finding organs for small children can be very difficult. Elizabeth and Lucky decided to donate Jake’s organs since he was brain dead, and Jake was a match for Josslyn.
