Valentin is determined to keep Victor away from Anna, and on the Thursday, Aug. 18, episode of "General Hospital," Valentin will try to make a deal to protect her.

In the ABC promo video, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) asks what it will take to make Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) stand down. "GH" spoilers reveal Valentin tries to convince Victor that Anna (Finola Hughes) is no longer a problem.

Victor believes Anna needs to be taken out so she stops trying to figure out the shady dealings between him and Valentin. However, Valentin has been enjoying his blossoming romance with Anna and doesn't want his father to harm her.

It appears Valentin will do his best to convince Victor that Anna isn't a threat, but will his words be enough to save Anna, or will Victor require more proof before he is willing to leave Anna alone?

Elsewhere in the promo video for the ABC soap opera, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) demands that everyone stay out of her business. "General Hospital" spoilers reveal Elizabeth is triggered by another disturbing memory.

Elizabeth has insisted that she's fine after leaving Shadybrook Sanitarium earlier than she should have. Although Finn (Michael Easton) believes she needs further professional help, Elizabeth doesn't want people meddling in her life.

It appears Elizabeth will be caught off guard by another disturbing memory, but will it convince her that she needs to return to Shadybrook, or will she continue to deny that she needs help?

Other "GH" spoilers tease that Anna concocts a plan with Lucy (Lynn Herring), Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) helps Chase (Josh Swickard) with his career, Scott (Kin Shriner) wants to tell Lucy about Cody (Josh Kelly), and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) encourages Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) to give Cody a chance.

"General Hospital" airs weekdays at 3 p.m. ET on ABC.
