GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brooklyn Rae Silzer's Showstopping Performance! Jason Leaves Liz & Patrick and Sam Split!

It was an episode of broken hearts galore on Thursday’s General Hospital.

But while all the adults in the “A” storyline where acting their hearts out, so too was little Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma Drake).  We suspect the audience probably needed to wipe away some serious tears during the hour long broadcast.

In a tour de force performance of her own, Brooklyn’s Emma was devastated to learn that her father Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) were not going to be married after all … in fact, they were splitting up.  As a young girl who has had her home life torn apart by outside forces within Robin and Patrick’s marriage, and her now MIA mom, and then compounding that with counting on a life with Sam and Danny, and Patrick, Emma is rocked to her core to find out that Sam is not going to be at the Drake home anymore.  Getting more upset, Emma screams for her mommy! Patrick allows her to place a call to Robin.  As we find out, Robin (Kimberly McCullough) is being held captive now by the returning Jerry Jacks (Sebastian Roche) and has 48 hours to finish her research, or she will be killed.    Robin can barely comfort her daughter, because she cannot admit where she is, as Emma want her to go come and is still beside herself.  An emotionally drained Patrick tells Emma they will go to Paris to visit Robin.  How heartbreaking and touching was it to see the father/daugher scenes played to perfection by Thompson and Silzer?!

Patrick and Sam meanwhile said as an adult a goodbye as you can between two people.  Sam finally came to her senses that Patrick was right.  She can’t love him totally and completely like he deserves, now that Jason is alive, and that Jason (Billy Miller) is indeed the love of her life.  Again, Kelly Monaco and Jason Thompson delivered emotionally compelling scenes.

And then there was Jason and Liz (Rebecca Herbst)!  Jason has learned of Liz’s duplicity! She has now admitted it all, including Nikolas’ (Tyler Christopher) part in it.  She informs Jason she knew since the Nurses Ball and no matter how she spins it, and even admitting she didn’t want to lose him which is why she lied, Jason is fit to be tied!

Jason realizes that Elizabeth kept him from his son Danny, his wife, his family.  No matter how she tries to rationalize what she did, Jason ends up walking out on Elizabeth and tells her she broke his heart!  The episode also features compelling performances by both Billy Miller and Rebecca Herbst in scenes that fans have waited for over many months!

So, what did you think of the performance of Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma)? What did you think of Jason leaving Liz, and Patrick and Sam going splittsville?  What about Robin being held yet again in a lab?  Did you enjoy the work of Monaco, Thompson, Miller and Hebst?  Share your thoughts on this pivotal episode of GH in the comment section below!

    Kudo,s to all of the actors in today’s episode – everyone of them brought their “A” game. Special mention to Brooklyn Rae Silzer for her winning performance!

      I cried my eyes out. Even the words Olivia said to Dante were spot on. When she told him you will regret this for the rest of your life! Im not a fan of the new lulu. But everyones performance was exceptional especially Emma!!

    Stunning absolutely stunning performance. It was so believable it broke my heart. And so realistic because adults make all this poor choices and the it is often the children who have to deal with the fall out—kudos for GH for finally showing a child being a child. A little girl who needs her mommy– If the show doesn’t keep her around after JT leaves they may never get her back– if she wants to continue to act I think she has a bright future in the industry.

      You bet, Mary. I think it was so believable because those were heartfelt tears. The pain was real; palpable , touching, stirring the senses. Jason is leaving, thus everyone drew the sadness and emotion from that. I have never witnessed an actor cry such tears (in rivulets) before as Jason did today. There’s no doubt he loves Brooklyn almost as a daughter….she has played one for so long. Finally, Sam/Kelly had real tears streaming down her face; not just wet eyes, lol.

    1st-
    the performance of Brooklyn Rae Silzer /Emma- greatness ! BRAVA!
    2nd-
    I am still bewildered why some people like to feel depressed and cry and cry and feel broken hearted and praise stories that make them feel awfully gloomy sad watching hardcore sadness story; why they love that feeling of doom and gloom pain is masochistic , bwaha!

    Anyways..
    Jason will return to Liz and his/their family.. (Sam is enough to drive him psychotic lol.
    He needs to be alone to findhimself and while searching for himself to have some intriguing adventures during his discovering journey. get it on and going!
    ((it was insane to write him tied up with 2 crazy women from the gitgo, sigh .

    I will miss the Partick character.. I hope there will be no recast, sometimes things/characters need to end. Everything ends..

    I am tired of couples and their love gone wrong problems..
    watching them can make one feel like an ol’ biddy snoopy Gladis sticking their nose into everyone’s personal problems and demanding to know all their personal business then being an azz ..
    I hope soon the love and doom will end and their will new and exciting stories.
    I need at the least some adventure, intrigue, on the edge anything story. And– some humor.
    Looking forward to Scorpio and Jax and their adventure and hopefully some edgy excitement! 🙂

    (( great phenomenal performances from ALL this past week!! ( long applause !

    LONG LIVE GH !!!

      That is why I read your comments.

        I just got home, Harry….after a harrowing day at the shelter, feeding the homeless ( that should make su happy)…..dragging my feet and arse. And, here I am, reading your comment which sent me into peels of laughter. Now, I really and truly needed that!!

      • CeeCee

        December 12, 2015 at 12:19 pm

        PS.
        As I said, Harry. I really believe that this wonderful little child, Brooklyn, must be so very sad to see Jason go. Those tears; that pain were real, no acting.

      • CeeCee

        December 12, 2015 at 12:49 pm

        Oh, Harry. You wonderful man, you. I have been saying that Dante just needed an excuse to cheat. He already knew it was going to happen. He has known since Valerie moved in with him and Lulu, when she had nowhere to go. As a matter of fact, Lulu suspected as much also, if you remember. That was the reason Valerie went to live at Wyndemere. Now, we are human, and as such we have flaws and weaknesses. Dante felt the attraction, but instead of avoiding any hanky-panky, he looked for an opening to walk through to temptation. He should have made a turnabout. Valerie, the ‘ fille de joie ‘ that she is, opened that naughty door and ‘herself’ wider, no? I wonder if that fruit was any sweeter for Dante. She had complete disregard for family, friends and their generosity. The writers should have never gone there, in my opinion. Why? To show that marriages go through seemingly insurmountable mountains and come out the other side, forgiving and forgetting. Not I. NEVER!!
        Certain apples are forbidden Harry, which makes the taste that much sweeter, but, a real man/woman with healthy convictions should always keep his/her moral code in the pocket. Feel its weight once in a while, and get the big picture once that line has been crossed.
        Confucius say: “One should realize the necessity of concern for others”. In this case, the concern was not only for Lulu, but for Rocco, for Olivia….for anyone else his behavior may affect. But, the crotch is mightier than the mind. That’s all!

    If Jason and Brooklyn don’t get nominated and win Emmys for today’s performance, it would be major mistake and a insult to the talent of these two actors.

    • JUDY K

      December 10, 2015 at 8:36 pm

      TOTALLY AGREE…..THIS LITTLE GIRL IS AMAZING AND SHE DESERVES TO BE NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY WHICH SHE SHOULD WIN HANDS DOWN!!!!! ALL THE ACTORS WERE EXCEPTIONAL TODAY……THE SHOW WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR…..JASON AND BILLY MILLER BOTH DESERVE EMMY NODS!!!

      • Harry

        December 12, 2015 at 10:31 am

        This little actress is so good you forget that she is acting. I think she may be one of the best child actresses I have ever seen. She was really crying and reacting exactly how a little girl would act after losing her mother twice and after losing prospective step mothers twice.
        Yes, the little girl who plays Faith on Y&R is also a tour de force. However, you never forget that she is acting–there is a certain affectation which is discernible. You almost expect Faith to start belting out, “Tomorrow! Tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow!” You never get this feeling from Emma–you really feel that she’s a real little girl suffering from a whole lot of pain after suffering too much loss in her short life.

      • Eileen Hargis

        December 12, 2015 at 2:44 pm

        How do u nominate “Jason” for an Emmy? Billy Miller, yes, but a character????

      • CeeCee

        December 12, 2015 at 3:29 pm

        @Eileen Hargis:
        Again, Eileen you missed the mark. And, there you go again, making people feel stupid. Judy K is talking about Jason Thompson not Billy’s Jason. JT definitely deserves an Emmy. However, Robert Scott Wilson wins, by a longshot.

    Brooklyn was AWESOME. She should win an emmy.

  6. Scoma60

    December 10, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    I just resent the hell out of this story. There was never any reason for Liz to know other than throwing the character on the bus. Everyone comes out clean (even Sam who toyed with Patrick/Emma’s emotions) except Liz. This lie was totally out of character. But it is what it is. I just want Liz to stand strong and throw everyone elses misdeeds back in their face. All the criminals/liars/cheats will come for her and she needs to slay them with their hypocrisy. I also want Liz to tell Jason she is the ONLY person who cared, supported and believed in him as Jake.

    • rebecca1

      December 11, 2015 at 3:35 am

      Sam didn’t toy with anyone. She loves Patrick; still does. But he and she both knew that she would always have an incredible love for Jason in her heart. That was acceptable to Patrick when he thought Jason was dead.

      Sam can’t help her conflicting feelings. Must have been simultaneously unparalleled happiness and heart shattering confusion for her when she found out he was alive.

      Patrick still believes Robin purposely picked up and abandoned him and Emma. He no longer grieves for her because of that…so it was easier for him to fully love Sam and move on. Sam knows Jason didn’t leave her…he was presumed dead…and now he’s back. She knew he “died” loving her…and needs him to remember that.

      What makes this story so poignant, powerful…is how hurt everyone is. And yes, because of Nic and Liz keeping the truth from Jason, Patrick and Sam. It’s their deceit that caused this trickle down effect…

      Not only was Brooklyn heartbreaking wonderful…Jason Thompson, Rebecca…though I had zero sympathy for Liz…but Kelly as Sam was amazing as well. She is so obviously torn…her love for Jason undeniable, all the while loving Patrick and Emma and trying to deny her feelings for Jason even to herself…wanting to return to the easy choice of the family she and Patrick had built. Ultimately…her pull towards Jason won. Gut wrenching stuff…

      • Harry

        December 11, 2015 at 5:42 pm

        Rebecca, I agree with almost everything you say here, except one–Patrick should know his wife better than to think that after fighting with every fiber of her being to get back to her husband and daughter she both so dearly loves that she would not leave yet again. Both Patrick and Anna should know there is something amiss with Robin and that she is not willfully staying away.
        I can apply the same reasoning of spousal knowledge and trust to Dante. Dante should know in his heart of hearts that Lulu would not have had an affair with Dillon and not used that as an excuse to cheat.

      • Jane

        December 11, 2015 at 6:08 pm

        Sam was misleading Patrick, her actions speak louder then her words. Telling him how she wanted a life with him, up to the minute Patrick finally said it’s over so lets not put Sam up as any saint. Sure Liz was totally wrong and probably should be committed. I do feel sorry for Liz and Jason probably should get custody of Jake.

    • maddiehayes

      December 11, 2015 at 5:32 am

      I agree. Everybody’s dumping on Liz, and now Jason. What a jerk he is, after being OH so in love with her. I hope he was just angry and will go back and apologize. Not that I want her to take him back! But this thing is NOT all her fault. He had a part to play in this. After all, with no memory, he asks Liz to marry him (in the sweetest way possible!). He KNEW he might have a family out there. But he was willing to quit looking for THEM. And drag Liz into quite possibly a terrible situation. Not to mention this jerk said to her about bouncing between him and Ric. Really?! MONTHS before she found out he was Jason, she had chosen Jake. But then Hayden came into the picture. As soon as Liz found out about Ric’s deception, she told Nicholas she could finally be happy with Jake. THAT’s when Nick told her he was Jason. Yes, she WAS deceptive to keep the secret. But she LOVED Jake BEFORE she knew he was Jason. And he loved her! And yeah yeah yeah, Jasam and all. I don’t care, idiot, go back to Sam for all I care. But Liz doesn’t deserve your hate.

      • CeeCee

        December 11, 2015 at 9:40 am

        That is exactly the reason I called Jason a moron. What fool jumps into ‘life’ so fast without knowing what the heck is in his past? You do have a point, maddie. I didn’t stop to look at it that way; that is, Jason has had a hand in fanning the fire. Great observation.

      • maddiehayes

        December 11, 2015 at 1:52 pm

        Thanks for being fair, CeeCee. The deck has definitely stacked against Liz, she’s been made to look like a desperate ninny. Guess we have another catfight to look forward to, once Carly gets her claws on Liz .. lol.

      • Jane

        December 11, 2015 at 6:16 pm

        Liz does deserve his anger, I mean who wouldn’t be yelling at her??
        Carly is another hypocrite but isn’t half the cast? Liz’s is the BIG the lair
        and Sonny a killer. Yes who asks some one to marry them NOT knowing who the heck they are? Jake Doe/Jason Morgan that’s who.

      • maddiehayes

        December 12, 2015 at 7:21 am

        Oh yeah Jane, I agree, I knew Jason would be angry. But after he cools off, he needs to realize a few things. Mainly, that Liz has loved and cared about him for over a year, most of that time she didn’t even know he was Jason. And she hardly “trapped” him. He wanted to stay with her even after he found out who he was. He loved her VERY dearly. She lied, yes, and that was reprehensible. But she didn’t “trap” anybody.

    • Angela

      December 11, 2015 at 5:32 am

      It is not true that Liz is the ONLY one who cared, supported and believed in him. Sam helped him find out who is was, worked with him to prove Helena and Nik held his secrets. She also forgave him for breaking into her home, trying to kill her and blow up the Haunted Star. Carly fought for him, protected him from Sonny and PAID for his attorney. Just because Liz is the one who invited him to bed, doesn’t make her the only one who cared. Liz has never been an honest person. She has lied to every single man she has been involved with repeatedly, so no, she is not a perfect person. The problem with this story is that she didn’t just cheat Sam out of her husband, she cheated the entire family out of their father/son/cousin etc. Heck, she even lied to her own son!

      I agree I think they did this to get the fan wars as I call them going again and getting people to tune in. Poor Liz living in denial Patrick nailed it when he basically said once Jason remembers Sam he would come back to her. I am a viewer though that now it is over so am I because I won’t watch the Sonny & Jason hour again they have other characters on that show that can tell a good story also.

      • Harry

        December 12, 2015 at 10:34 am

        Simply put, Lizzy played God with Jason’s life and we all know only Carly is allowed to play that role.
        Kay, I don’t subscribe to those fan wars and think it’s actually possible to like both Sam and Lizzy at the same time

      yet… at the very minimum… and least ??? !!!!! GH PRODUCTION… layer; and give; Rebecca Herbst that much more… and give her that backbone and steely resolve to put herself even moreso… because … she… as a woman… will not be denied ignored and will BE

      am I coming from a character that should be fully realized ??? !!! of course… why not!

      the men certainly know this… character wise… and … from the audience… she is HOT!

        Ah, Patrick…I admire your loyalty. I love Rebecca. Liz looks like an angel. But an angel she ain’t. You know that Elvis song? DEVIL IN DISGUISE? That’s our Miss Lizzie. And so is Carly and so is Sam and so is Valerie and so is Hayden. What to do, Patrick? Let Jason go everybody!! Give him the chance to regroup. At this point, to be fair, Sam is the only one who wants to give Jason the space he needs. Sam is his wife. I know….but, he may still want to be with Liz. He is angry. Liz deserves his anger. But, I don’t know how Jason will be able to turn off his feelings in a snap. What will happen when his singer fools off is up to the writers. We may wish this and that; ultimately what we want to see happen is inconsequential.
        Yes, Patrick. Lizzie is flawless of face. Sultry? No. There is no sex appeal emanating from her whatsoever. She just does not have it! Hayden? Yes. Sam? Yes. Lizzie? No. Just my opinion, my friend. Later.

    Rarely in ANY medium is there a performance that makes the viewers forget that they are just watching an actress. Today, Brooklyn Rae Silzer crossed the line from cute tv soap child, playing pretend, to embodying a soulful, gut-wrenching, heart-breaking agony that I could feel burning inside of me. I’d challenge the best “seasoned” actresses to give that quality portrayal. Emmy for Miss Slizer, PLEASE!!!

  8. aria

    December 10, 2015 at 9:21 pm

    omg, ok, first,little emma broke my heart, she was just so heartbroken, Brooklyn Rae Silzer stole the show.
    i can’t believe Jason Thompson wants to leave GH to go play this other characters, thats all i got to say on that. Sam, well, i don’t know, she annoys me no matter what(the character not the actress).
    my liz, its time you pay for being so weak, this is not who i wan’t you to be, so its going to be difficult watching the likes of carly and sam no so much anymore, but still it will be hard watching them smirk, but the sooner we get through this the faster we can get to you redeeming yourself. I will still have your back over sam or carly.
    jason, oh boy i understand your anger and if you want to get back to Sam, go ahead, i’m not sure your right for liz or she’s right for you.
    Robin, i hope all the people in your life finally get a clue, and when they rescue you, you need to ask your parents to train you extensively in hand to hand combat, weapon training, in fact ask your friend jason to train you so that when jerry tries to kidnapp you again you can kick his sorry ass.

      December 11, 2015 at 6:53 am

      I am sure JFP over at Y&R made him a better offer and the actor has had a hard time having another grown up relationship on the show because everyone was yelling about Robin being the only one for him. I am glad the reveal is over good acting from everyone involved.

      ie: Robin : “…you need to ask your parents to train you extensively in hand to hand combat ”

      so the truth

      WOW! just knowing… GH production… will carry this lovestruck fan… SCRUBS LIVES! in to the sunset and beyond… will settle any unresolved and fastidious nature unbecoming… LOL

      I’m so glad the character actress who plays lil Emma… with such fiest… as to roar with… Gramma Anna; is all the rest I’ll take

      I like that you lot: “… I will still have your back over sam or carly ”

      I will steadfastly reel Rebecca Herbst

    Brooklyn did an absolutely awesome job. She is a truly amazing actor. Kudos to the writers as well, who gave her very believable and moving dialogue. I loved it when she said, No more girlfriends Daddy”. It really drove home how deeply a parent’s relationship affects a child. A brilliant day on GH all around.

    Oh my goodness, that little girl tore my heart out! Brooklyn was absolutely phenomenal in Thursday’s performance [and she’s totally believable the rest of the time as well]. I’m so glad that she’s staying on the show and that Emma will be living with Anna, though I’m not sure how that will occur.

    Since we don’t know exactly where Robin is being held, my best guess is that it’s definitely not in Paris. Perhaps Anna will talk Patrick into going there alone to look for Robin, perhaps never to return, and leave his daughter with her grandma.

    Brooklyn’s closest competition, acting-wise, is the little girl who plays Faith on Y&R, and who did an exceptional job on Thursday evening’s Dolly Parton biography, right down to the Tennessee accent. Let’s just hope that TPTB on both of those soaps choose not to SORAS these characters in a year or so in order to make them teenagers. They have terrific young actresses already, and I think fans are really tired of the unrealistic aging of core family children just to create love stories. Yucch!

    If the Daytime Emmies continue next year, I think they should create a special award for exception performances by children under the age of 10, in which case Brooklyn Rae Silzer would be shoo-in as the current year’s recipient. What a talented little girl, just as her TV mom was at the same age. Another star has been born.

    Good stuff today. Random observations….

    Emma was incredibly moving…hope her real life is way better and as a child actress she has very supportive parents.

    Billy is finally getting to show his range as an actor on GH…put his smitten, lovey-dovey face with Liz against the face we saw today as he confronted Liz and walked out. Wow! And if Liz didn’t get it, part of the strong bond with Jason and Sonny were the absolutes…loyalty and trust…and she betrayed both. Don’t know if there is a path back from that. I know some say she stood behind Jake/Jason, but it was because of her own selfish reasons.

    Another big black mark against Liz…she is also a major architect in Emma’s distress. If she had revealed Jake was Jason from the get-go, Patrick and Sam probably wouldn’t have gotten as far into their relationship, lived together as a family, and then got engaged…making it all that harder for Emma today.

    Still can’t believe Anna, Robert and Patrick haven’t done more to unravel Robin’s leaving and track her down.

    Kinda wish Olivia and Johnny had bumped into each other at the Haunted Star to see where that could go…again. At one time they had quite a relationship…along with her homemade cannolies, etc.

    Soooo bored with Lulu, who has never been one of my favorite characters no matter who played the role, Dante, except when he’s playing cop, and Valerie. Feel bad they couldn’t have found a better role for her than femme fatale.

    This was a great episode, soapy, tear filled, heartbreaking, beautifully acted and written. Jason, Billy, Kelly and Rebecca were wonderful. But it was Brooklyn that destroyed me. Amazing acting for such a young lady. I love GH, but I am rarely in tears. Today I was constantly in tears. Beautifully done. I smell Emmys!

    Who is Elizabeth’s mother?

    • sue

      December 12, 2015 at 6:52 am

      Interesting question! She and her sister came to live with Audrey as teenagers. I think Jeff (McGyver) was her dad (hoped he’d visit but never did) and I thought he and mom were missionary doctors or something but never mentioned her. maybe that’s why Liz is messed up….being dumped by her parents….

      • Elizabeth

        January 1, 2016 at 8:42 pm

        I believe Liz’s parents worked for Doctors Without Borders, stationed in Yugoslavia at the time Liz came to live with Audrey in 1997 (?)

    The caliber of acting on GH has been outstanding. Little Emma is most talented. She’s a keeper. I hope GH keeps her on.

      The acting on GH is always top-notch..
      GH is home to the best of the best actors..
      When they get the material to strut their acting, they all do ”emmy” performances..

      Sad, but Emma no longer has a connection on GH but Anna and the Anna charter lives a dangerous life, and not a good thing for Emma// Anna is not an at home mother character..
      Emma will leave with Patrick.. It will be a good thing 🙂

    How did Sam toy with anyone? She found out her husband was alive and living in the same for a yr. What is with these ELIZAHOE FANS? Seriously the only ones at fault for all of this honestly is Nik, and Liz so don’t blame Sam for any of this. Y’a
    ll can never get over the fact that Jason choose to marry Sam and not that Elizatwat wench! If that skezer Liz would have said something Patrick and Sam would not have gone this far.

        I love Lizzy, but yes her actions were selfish and atrocious. She should have listened to Laura. Laura is ALWAYS right.
        And yes, I don’t understand why some folks are being critical of Sam. She gets to be upset with Lizzy and is well within her rights.
        I just hope little Miss Lizzy picks herself up from her boot straps, dusts herself off, and walks into the sunset as a strong, self actualized, confident woman who doesn’t need any man to make her feel complete.
        She’s been a work in progress since the day she showed up unannounced at Grandma Audrey’s as a teenager ordering pizza on her Grandma’s credit card, drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and armed with nothing but an attitude.
        Let her get back her feisty spirit and man, let her stop with the sniveling desperation which obliterates her sense of right and wrong. That’s not out Mizz Lizzy!

      Agree with you Pina, a million times over. Nik is the root of all evil, which threw me for a loop since he is supposed to be the ‘good’ Cassadine. I still maintain that Helena hypnotized his brain, stole his real brain and replaced it with Victor’s or Stavros’s. Lol.
      By the by? Is your full name Giuseppina? Italians always use the end of a name as a nickname/moniker. Just curious, forgive me.

    December 11, 2015 at 8:25 am

    Shes a little dreamboat and I wish she could stay but she needs to be with her parents. We can only assume shes acted this way off camera, wanting her mommy back and now that SHAM has hit the road, Emma is crushed and needs stability. This little girl is a great actor and I want to see her grow-up on GH but for now it would be wrong to ship her to grandma’s house!

        We finally have Robin and Patrick back together and soap or no soap Emma should be with her parents who are unfortunately off the show. What I think is best is having Emma visit Anna a lot and also she can stay with Uncle Mac so she can stay on camera and grow up on the show like Kim did.

    Amazing all around Brooklyn was phenomenal better than some adults she deserves an emmy. I wish Sam and Patrick stayed together I use to be a total Jasam fan but I started to love these two as a couple breaks my heart a little. I hate Liz but Rebecca is always a powerhouse preformer.

    December 11, 2015 at 1:30 pm

    All the performances were excellent. Brooklyn is a great little actress and I hope she stays on GH when Patrick leaves. I wish Robin would come home to her as she is so troubled by not having a mother and father living together. When GH ended today I wondered if Jason was going back to Liz to give her a second chance. I cant wait until Monday to find out!

    • Eileen Hargis

      December 12, 2015 at 7:33 pm

      Nope, hes going back to blast her again. No reunion for Jason and Liz.

  24. Christy

    December 11, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    I’m hoping Jason will remember 2006-2009 – back when Sam and Carly were terrible towards Elizabeth… actually Carly has been terrible for a lot longer. Remember after Lucky “died” in the fire above Jason’s cycle shop? Jason allowed Elizabeth a slow dance while she tried to imagine Lucky being with her… it only lasted a short moment, but Carly spied at them from the window and thought Jason was cheating on her and so she ran to Sonny and then they proceeded to both betray Jason, by sleeping with each other.

    Liz has stood by Jason, saved his life a few times after he was shot and passed out in the snow… they had a secret hideaway to met each other (after Jake was born), they wanted to be together as a family, but his dangerous line of work was too scary to put baby Jake in the the middle of. He even proposed to Elizabeth, but then Michael got shot and it was a deadly reminder that mob kids really aren’t safe. Sam on the other hand, watched as baby Jake was kidnapped and did nothing to stop it. Then she hired a couple of guys with guns to confront Elizabeth and her two boys, to scare her away from Jason. She went to Carly’s and taunted her to tell her Jason & Elizabeth’s secret… that Jason was Jake’s real father. Naturally Carly started up with the hating Elizabeth and went on a typical rampage.

    Wish he would remember how long he’s know Elizabeth, how long he’s loved her and all the times that Carly and Sam were just hateful. The two of them have done so many horrible things. I know Elizabeth kept this most recent secret too long, but I hope Jason can remember all the times she tried to tell him “something”, and remember how long she loved Jake Doe before knowing he was her longtime love, Jason.

    And wish he’d remember Emily too. 🙂

      Its NOT love when you lie to a person, no matter what the reason for it.

      • Christy

        December 13, 2015 at 1:49 pm

        Ha! True. But Carly and Sam have lied and cheated wayyyyy more times than Elizabeth, and Jason always seemed to get past it. Just like Sonny told Jason, that Carly has done a lot of bad things, lying to Sonny and he would be so angry at her, but always seemed to get over it and get back together with her because he loves her.

      • Christy

        December 13, 2015 at 1:52 pm

        Majority of people who love each other always seem to lie about one thing or another, especially on a soap, and they seem to get over it. What Carly and Sonny did with each other all those years ago, betraying Jason, he seemed to get over it, as Sonny was still his boss and best friend, and same for Carly.

    • CeeCee

      December 13, 2015 at 6:53 pm

      Wow…I learn something new all the time, Christy. Another good reason to make me despise Sam and Carly a little bit more. I guess compared to those actions, Elizabeth’s lie doesn’t sound as ominous. However, it still does not absolve what Lizzie did. One should never be afraid of the truth.

    Brooklyn gave an performance not normally expected for her age. It was outstanding! Can’t remember what the last time a child actor her age performed that well. Hope the people in charge at General Hospital do whatever is necessary to keep her on the canvas. The kid pool at GH is going to get thin pretty soon. Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer) might not be available too much longer if his Disney show does well. And GH already let go of Hanna Nordberg (ex Joss). She proved last night in The Coat of Many Colors that she could play a wider range.

    Emma really brought it, she didn’t hold back, she REALLY let the waterworks, the pain, the anguish, just GUSH out of her! On rewatch, I noticed even a pro like Jason Thompson couldn’t hide his pride in her with a little smile. I am so sad this father-daughter team will soon be no more.

    Just watched the episode… I so would like to see Robin & Patrick in witness protection but unable to fathom Brooklyn leading such a life on the run & in danger. Abandon Emma, leaving her with Gramma Anna for her own good. And watch what happens to the girl dealing with her abandonment issues as she grows up in Port Charles!

    Kudos to that little spitfire actress! Nicely done & genuinely portrayed – hoping you stick around, but if not on GH at least in the public eye! 🙂

    Brooklyn could certainly give lessons to the other actors on GH. She made me cry. She really tugged at my heartstrings. I want mommy !. I can’t wait to see her and Patrick go to Paris, discover Robin is not there get Anna and Robert to come and they can rescue her. I don’t know who coached this beautiful child but she certainly brought it. Great work. Patrick, ?Jason always can bring the tears , Sam and Lizzie here we gio again. Liz may have been at the heart of emma’s pain, today but she kept Danny and Sam safe with no mobster hit man to live with. Carly , I hope falls off her high horse if she says a word. Remember carolie, all the pain you caused Bobbie and Tony. The pain she has caused Michael, Monica , AJ. etc etc, etc.Carly’s middle name is liar. Jake/Jason was a killing machine for the mob. Wonder if jake will be happy about that, and jump back in the middle of Sonny’s mob ? I will watch the end of scrubs, than its over. Toooo much mob for me. Plus I don’t care about the rest of the show. Laura came back a year to late. I did enjoy Emmas performance. and loved seeing carlos back. Anna didn’t kill him in cold blood but. The intent was there. Someone needs to tell TIIC to wake up and give us a soap not mobs are us.

    Yes, Carly and Sam have lied and behaved badly in the past, but Liz hiding Jason’s true identity not only hurt him and so many others, it was life changing. It would have gone on a lifetime if she’d had her way. That kind of lie is unforgivable. And, she is still talking crap to Sam, who should slap her face. That kind of lie if unforgiveable. So sorry JasonThompson is leaving. His scenes with Sam and little Emma were heartbreaking. Such a talent.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.

Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.

Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
