In the ambulance Griffin gets the ok from Kendall to operate and promises he won’t let her die.  In need of assistance, Griffin wants David who is granted permission to guide him through the surgery. Jake notices Cara’s wedding ring when her necklace falls off. Jesse, Bianca, Caleb and Jackson console Erica as she worries about Kendall’s roadside surgery. After talking with Dr. Burke alone, JR decides he is going to help Annie.  When Annie arrives for the session, she claims the cut on her head is a result of slipping on ice but then blurts out she didn’t mean to hurt anyone.  Annie tells JR she would like some time alone after he says he’d like to take care of her. Colby is cuffed to a table in the cottage and tries to get her hands on Annie’s cell phone.  She finally does and sends a text message to JR. Annie returns and when Colby admits everyone thinks she is visiting her father, Annie’s pleased since no one will notice she’s gone.

Kendall and Griffin both realize that when she said, “I Love You”, she thought he was Zach. David tells Griffin he can breathe a sigh of relief now that he’s saved Kendall’s life. Griffin tells Cara that he had to tell Kendall his secret in order to get her to trust him. After Kendall confesses to Erica that she remembers shooting David, Erica says she kept the secret to avoid Kendall getting all stressed out. Kendall confides in Ricky that she felt like Zach was in the ambulance trying to tell her something.  He says it must have been Zach telling her she’s going to pull through. When David tells Erica that Kendall won’t suffer for what she’s done if Erica helps him out, she sets up a meeting between David and the governor for the next morning.  Despite being put back in jail, David feels confident freedom is right around the corner. Trying to avoid any further problems between Erica, Jackson and Caleb, Bianca asks Caleb to come back to Kendall’s house to help her out.  Caleb admits he’s tried to keep his distance from Erica but she was in a crisis and he couldn’t walk away. Jackson expresses his frustrations in his relationship with Erica to Krystal. Jackson flips out on Erica when he learns about the meeting she set up for David with the governor.  He wonders what about his daughter in all of this.  Angry, he tells Erica to go lean on Caleb. After Jake sees the ring on Cara’s necklace she admits that she still loves him and only left him to save his life since the repercussions of her actions in Sudan could have killed him. After being released from prison, David tells Ryan he wants to be a better man.  He admits to wanting to be a doctor again which angers Ryan but Greenlee tells him not to worry about David. Tad becomes protective of Liza when David offers to buy her a drink. Griffin tries to hide his feeling for Kendall but after overhearing Ricky suggesting they get dinner one night he questions him about his relations with Kendall. Ricky tells someone on a one way call that his feelings for Kendall will not get in the way of his mission. Scott tells Madison she has one more chance to tell Ryan about the pregnancy before the wedding tomorrow.  Greenlee tells Scott to keep Madison busy because she doesn’t want her wedding day ruined.  Scott downplays when Madison questions him on whose idea it was when he asks her on a date. Asher decides he’s going to find where Colby went and after hearing an odd conversation that JR has with Annie, he decides to go to the cottage. JR finds out from Asher that Annie was holding Colby hostage and despite giving her a hug he plans to take action.  He calls Dr. Burke and tells him that he will talk to Annie about committing herself before she becomes more of a danger to herself and others. Tad tells JR he knows it was his car that hit the ambulance carrying Kendall and JR realizes that it was Annie driving.

As their relationship continues to stand on rocky ground, Erica decides not to attend Ryan & Greenlee’s wedding.  When Ricky questions them on their own nuptials the couple covers. Fusion, Greenlee catches Madison holding a bouquet of flowers and after apologizing profusely, Madison runs out but winds up leaving her cell phone behind.  When she goes back to get it Ryan notices her having trouble bending over and Greenlee blurts out that Madison is pregnant. JR convinces Tad to let him handle this situation with Annie but Tad draws up commitment papers as Plan B just in case Annie spirals. Annie tells a hallucination of Marissa that she is getting married tonight and as JR leads up to telling Annie that he wants her to commit herself, they’re interrupted by the police. After Brot takes JR down to the station because his car was involved in the accident he’s arrested. Annie finds the commitment papers and is convinced that Marissa’s behind it.  When Marissa shows up looking for JR, Annie says he’s in the attic.  The girls get into a scuffle when Marissa catches Annie trying to knock her out.  Marissa falls after being pushed and winds up unconscious. Caleb tries to distance himself from Erica and her family.  He turns down Bianca’s invitation to a big family dinner claiming he is not family.

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.
