Jesse lets JR off to deal with “internal issues” but makes him promise that he will give a statement. Annie has reached her final breaking point. She smashes a gas pipe and locks Marissa in the attic.  When JR brings up her going to Oak Haven Annie comes clean about locking up Marissa. Marissa struggles to free herself and eventually passes out.  JR knocks on the door and tries to save her. Ryan is shocked to learn Madison is pregnant and Scott covers by saying the child is his.  Ryan tells Greenlee he is fine, he just wants to go on with the wedding and by day’s end they are pronounced husband and wife. Scott covers and acts surprised when Madison tells him that Greenlee knew she was pregnant.  Madison admits she is glad to no longer have to hide her pregnancy. JR rescues Marissa from the attic and when they search Annie’s room at the Yacht Club, Marissa realizes that JR was staying there with her.  He admits to a relationship with Annie and she realizes the lengths he went to in order to get custody.  Marissa’s sick over the fact she believed in him. Annie convinces Emma to leave the wedding with her and claims they are going on an adventure.  David helps her get away and says he will take care of everything.  Ryan freaks out when he realizes his daughter is missing and demands JR tell him where Annie went. Bianca admits to Erica the reason she is pushing her to do something about Jackson before it’s too late is because Reese decided not to get on the plane and come to PV. Erica sees Jackson and Krystal about to share a piece of cake and points out that maybe he didn’t miss her as much as she thought. Liza tries to avoid having a drink with David on Valentine’s Day; he tells her that he’s turned over a new leaf and is no longer holding onto people who don’t love him. Asher tries to pursue Colby but she makes it difficult. Colby approaches Liza about prosecuting Annie and tells her mother that she’s going to see Damon.  Asher overhears and thinks it’s a bad idea.  Liza tells Asher she’s learned to let Colby make her own decisions and thinks this one will fade.

After getting some relationship advice from Kendall, Bianca calls Reese to tell her everything.  She leaves a message and decides if she doesn’t hear back in 24 hours then she knows it’s really over. Cara confronts Griffin about his feelings for Kendall. Griffin tells Kendall to forget about the secret he told her about sending drugs oversees and to just concentrate on recovering. Insecure over Cara and Jake, Amanda questions Jake on what he felt when his ex admitted she still loved him.  Jake reassures Amanda that he only loves her. Cara refuses to take the wedding ring off her neck after Amanda asks her to, claiming it got her through tough times and Amanda’s just going to have to accept that Jake loved another woman. In the hopes of getting closer to his son, Caleb asks Asher to move in with him and out of the Chandler mansion. Asher doesn’t want to leave JR especially after he helped him when needed it most and now he wants to return the favor; JR is family to him. JR tries to apologize to Marissa for everything but she wants him to leave her alone.  Asher offers JR his support. Ryan listens to a message from Annie and Emma and Greenlee comforts her husband who is beside himself. As he tries to deal with Emma’s disappearance, Ryan blames those close to Annie for turning a blind eye to her craziness. Along with Jesse they find Marissa’s car near the woods which Annie took and now abandoned.  After getting a call from Opal about Spike’s concern for his sister, Ryan reassures the boy that Emma has gone on an adventure. Tad informs Jake of the danger Cara faces if she goes back to Doctors without Borders. Amanda calls the immigration department to report possible fraud on Cara’s passport.

Both Griffin and Ricky try to establish a relationship with Kendall while trying to knock down the other.  Ricky consoles Kendall about Emma and they share a kiss. Scott and Madison discuss whether or not he will maintain the lie that he is the father of her baby. Greenlee is grateful to Scott for covering in front of Ryan and he admits that he’s happy to help Madison since he thinks highly of her. In an effort to protect Cara from the dangerous warlords, Tad sets a fake funeral in motion. Both Griffin and Cara agree to the idea and Cara thanks Tad for trying to help her. Amanda admits to Jake that she was upset at Cara for wearing the ring but believes in their love.  After Tad tells Amanda about the funeral plan she tries to tell the USCIS that the passport fraud was a mistake but it’s too late, Cara is taken away by two men in suits which Amanda witnesses from afar. Ricky admits his feelings to Kendall and then insinuates Griffin is keeping her in the hospital longer than necessary. In the park, Diane tells Ricky that he was sent to PV to find out the evidence Zach had on the casino/mob situation not play “footsies” with his wife.  She makes it clear that any risk is too much and makes a veiled threat against Kendall which Ricky will have to implement if the evidence is not found.  Just as Griffin’s about to open up to Kendall she asks him if she can go home already. Ryan continues to look for Emma and combs through security footage with Greenlee by his side.  Jesse gives Ryan a photo of David talking to Annie before she fled. Kendall consoles Bianca when she says that she and Reese are divorcing. Marissa says she will be Bianca’s lawyer but going off her own experience warns her to be prepared for anything from Reese regarding the children.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Must Say Goodbye to Mike As Maurice Benard Delivers Heartbreaking Performance

Any of us who has watched their loved one slip further away from Alzheimer’s disease could relate to exactly what Sonny Corinthos (Mauice Benard) was feeling on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.

It is always a tough and horrific decision when families contemplate what to do with (in this case) a parent, and where is the best place for them to live out the remainder of their days.  Sometimes, it’s clear cut and easy, and sometimes it’s difficult.

In the case of Mike Corbin (Max Gail), Sonny and Carly (Laura Wright) gave him a home and safe place to be, but as the disease progressed and as Mike’s reality becomes his own, and has he has been losing more self-control. it becomes apparent that they need to be able to give him the best life they can now.

In story, Griffin (Matt Cohen) points this out to Sonny and Carly when they discuss the progression of the disease on Mike.  It is apparent that Mike wants to go live with, and be with his “girlfriend’ Yvonne at Turning Woods.  Sonny and Carly struggle to come to term with that fact, but know they must let him go.   It is tough for them to put Mike permanently at the care facility.  Sonny thinks he may have been too selfish by keeping Mike with them so long.  Ultimately, he arranges a room for his father at the facility.

Mike comes downstairs after packing his bags, and thanks them for taking him in.  Hey says, that they are nice people, but that Yvonne is waiting for him, so he is moving in with her.  Sonny tells his dad, he has a room at the Corinthos’ home any time he wants it.

In the most touching moment, Carly offers to drive Mike to get to Yvonne faster.  He really appreciates it, and Sonny decides to just let Carly do this alone, because it would be too difficult on him to watch his father check-in and have to leave him behind.

Before he heads out, Mike forgets his gloves and he goes upstairs to look for them.  Sonny decides to check Mike’s suitcase to see if they are in there, and begins to break down.  He sees the framed photo of himself and his father from the Nurses’ Ball last year, and packs it in Mike’s suitcase.  After Carly drives off with Mike, Sonny begins to cry.

We have to give kudos to Maurice Benard in these scenes.  Anyone who has been witness to watching a parent go through this most dreadful disease, could feel his pain.  It was a heartbreaking and raw performance.

So, what did you think of the scenes where Sonny must let his father leave his home and move into the care facility?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And in case you missed some of the scenes, check them out here.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Can’t See & Maxie and Nina Visit Nathan’s Grave

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, a now blind Ryan is freaking out, because as he is in the hospital (while Finn tries to figure out if the same virus that caused Anna’s temporary blindness caused his), he learns that Lulu is in surgery and still fighting for her life.  If she lives, she will name him as the culprit who stabbed her.

When Anna and Finn visit “Kevin”, Anna asks him if he ever worked for the WSB or DVX.  “Kevin” claims he did not.  Anna believes all of this is the handy work of a doctor who worked for the international spy rings.  Finn asks if “Kevin” had been in contact with something that wasn’t his recently, and it is then Ryan flashes to Lulu’s license, realizing he needs to find it and its in his coat pocket.

“Kevin” gets rid of Ava from his room, and attempts to get out of bed to get to his coat and locate Lulu’s driver’s license.  However, since he cannot see, the license goes under the hospital bed, and just as he is trying to grab it, Ava walks back in the room.

Meanwhile at GH. Jordan explains to Laura that the police found a bloody footprint going in the opposite direction from Lulu.  Valentin and Nina tell Charlotte that Lulu is in the hospital, and the little girl insists they go to her now.  Charlotte leaves with Valentin, Nina stays behind.

Elsewhere, Jason is underground trapped in some kind of built out setting to probably nefarious crimes. When Sam goes for help, the fire department shows up.   Sam calls her pal Spinelli!  She asks him to check the maps of pipes and tunnels under the city.  Spinelli reveals that the water system leads out to the harbor at Pier 55.  Jason also finds a small space that he is hoping to swim through to get to the other side of the pier.

Then, in touching scenes, Maxie goes to Nathan’s gravesite and reveals to her beloved late husband that she is getting closer to his brother, Peter.  She also admits she is scared to start a relationship with him.  She asks for a sign from Nathan if it is OK.  As she cries, Peter shows up with a handkerchief to wipe Maxie’s tears.  She admits she doesn’t know how to let go of Nathan and move on.  Peter assures her that Nathan will let her know when it’s time.

Later, Nina shows up and tells the duo about Lulu. They had to GH where Peter is then in question for the crime; being the last person they can substantiate that spoke to Lulu before she was stabbed.  Jordan also reveals to Laura that Lulu’s license is missing from her belongings.

Back at Nathan’s grave, a grieving sister, Nina, shares heartfelt moments with her late brother, missing him, and filling him on the latest in her life and Maxie’s.  One again, Michelle Stafford delivered in these scenes.

Finn shows up with results for “Kevin”.  He tells him the tests shows he has the same virus as Anna and he will need surgery to correct his sudden loss of his eyesight.  Finn also tells “Kevin” this good news: Lulu made it through surgery and will make a full recovery.  Ryan is in trouble and he knows it.

At the end of the episode as Sam makes it over to Pier 55, she spots Jason’s body in the water and jumps in to save him.  We fade to black.

Now, check out the emotional scenes performed by Kirsten Storms and Michelle Stafford below. Then, let us know, do you think Maxie and Peter should move forward with their relationship? How can Ryan get out of the predicament he finds himself in now? Will Lulu come to and identify “Kevin” as her assailant ? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS IS US Delivers Stunning Episode As The Big Three Meet Their Uncle Nick

If you caught Tuesday night’s episode of This Is Us, you saw television drama at its best, and one of the best installments of this heart-tugging series, doing what it does best – intertwining past and present day storytelling, and revealing a shocking truth that will have a ripple effect for the Big Three and Rebecca.

The episode was a beautifully scripted hour of TV called, “Songbird Road Part 1”.  The title refers to the address of where the very much alive Nick (brother of Jack) is living 166 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

In the past, we see Jack receiving postcards from his brother under the alias “Clark Kent” or “C. K.” and reaching out to him over an extended period of time, trying to reconnect.  Jack hides all of the postcards.  When one of them shows up at his home mailbox, and it reads “Last one”, Jack decides to take a Saturday trip to see his brother, and lies to Rebecca as to where he is headed.

In the present day, the Big Three set out on a road trip to find their Uncle Nick, now that Kevin’s journey to Vietnam and back has revealed that Jack lied to everyone – telling them that his younger brother died, when he is actually alive.  Seeking the truth and to locate him, Randall, Kevin and at first a reluctant Kate, set out to the address on the postcard Kevin has.  Rebecca does not want to go, obviously, struggling with the fact that Jack never let on during their marriage that his brother was alive.
