'General Hospital' Spoilers: Liz Drops A Bombshell, Julian Has Big Plans, And Robin's Fate Is Revealed [Updated]

Friday will bring fans a wild episode of General Hospital. Spoilers detail that there is more ahead on the Robin storyline as well as plenty of drama playing out at the Nutcracker Gala. What can everybody expect from the December 18 show?

The Nutcracker Gala is kicking into full gear and it is shaping up to be an elegant event. A lot of work has been put into pulling off this event, but that doesn't mean it will go off without any hitches. The event will carry over into the episodes airing during the week of December 21 and fans can't wait to see how it all comes together.

Jason, Elizabeth and Sam have all ended up at the gala, which is said to bring about some tense moments. While Jason has pushed both ladies away, at least for the moment, General Hospital spoilers tease that it may not stay that way for long. During Friday's show, words are exchanged and another juicy tidbit is revealed.

General Hospital spoilers indicate that Liz will tell Jason that Laura also knew his identity for months without saying a word to him. Laura has been holding this over Elizabeth's head for a while now, pressuring Liz to come clean, and now it looks like it may come back to bite Laura. There is going to be more drama at the gala on the Jason front in the episodes to come. Eventually, Nikolas and Jason will fight again, as well.

As viewers saw on Thursday's show, Robin had been taken away from the lab and Jerry had ordered his henchman to kill her. Anna, Robert and Patrick showed up looking for her and Jerry told them it was too late. General Hospital spoilers from She Knows Soaps share that viewers will learn Robin's fate in Friday's show.

While things do not look good for Robin at the moment, teasers from Soap Central indicate that Patrick, Anna and Robert will manage to get to her before she is killed. General Hospital spoilers indicate that Robin will have an opportunity to reunite with Emma at least briefly, though it seems that both Robin and Patrick will be heading off to parts unknown quite soon.

Friday's episode also has a big moment for Julian. General Hospital spoilers detail that he will be asking Molly and Kristina for a moment of their time, as he has a big question for them. The big promo for the Nutcracker Gala has teased an engagement on the way, and it sounds as if it is for Julian and Alexis. It would appear that Julian will be asking Molly and Kristina for their blessing or help before he proposes.

Celeb Dirty Laundry details that Ava will be dealing with some jealousy over Paul working alongside Tracy at the event, but she soon entices him to sneak away for some hanky panky. They will manage to get together for a quickie, but someone will be catching them in the midst of the act.

Carly will be confronting Sonny about not attending the gala, while Monica takes a look at the sonogram of Sabrina's pregnancy. General Hospital spoilers indicate that she will quickly see that something is amiss, and this will soon prompt Michael to confront Sabrina about whether he is really the baby's father.

There is plenty of drama coming in Friday's episode and General Hospital spoilers tease a big week ahead with the episodes airing during the week of December 21. Will viewers soon see Jason reunite with Elizabeth and Patrick managing to save Robin?

Update: Due to a press conference with President Obama pre-empting the show in some time zones, the episode slated to air Friday is being moved to Monday for all time zones.
