Erica tells Jack she needs to attend to some “business” and goes to see Caleb and Jackson watches from afar.  Krystal consoles Jack over the Erica situation. Krystal worries about Annie’s downward spiral and warns her to stay away from both Marissa and the bar.  JR reassures both Marissa and Krystal that he has the Annie situation under control; he’s called Dr. Burke from Oak Haven. JR is disturbed when he finds the stolen jewelry in Annie’s room. Kendall and Greenlee bond; Kendall offers up her house to Greenlee for the wedding but she says she’d rather have the wedding at Fusion.  Kendall, Greenlee & Ryan all toast to Kendall’s return to Fusion. After Ryan takes David to the rooftop mayhem ensues. Ryan threatens him and says he will be arrested for appearing to escape; Ryan’s got all areas covered and leaves.  David’s cuffed after Jesse finds him and despite insisting his innocence all evidence (a helicopter, Ryan’s alibi) points to a planned escape. With David “missing” from his room, Erica heads off to find Kendall after Jesse says David might want revenge on the person who shot him. When Marissa threatens to quit David insists Ryan set him up. David uses his one phone call to call Kendall down to the prison.  He brings up the photo of her trying to smother him with the pillow but Kendall doesn’t seem concerned. As she walks out Kendall collapses to the ground. Annie admits to JR that she staged the burglary which is the last straw for him. JR insists they can’t be together until unless she talks to someone. JR tells Tad that he won’t cut Annie loose just because she is “broken”.   JR returns Marissa’s stolen belongings, claiming he found them in pawn shop. Brot & Natalia each take measures to be together. When Brot is unsuccessful in getting fired, he resigns, but after Natalia tells the group she got a job with the Philly PD Jesse admits he stopped Brot’s letter from going through. Before visiting with David at the prison, Kendall shares an awkward moment with Ricky when she thinks he’s asking her out but both admit they just want a friendship.  The two make a date for dinner the following week. Jackson walks in on Erica and Caleb in an embrace and jumps to conclusions. Erica tells Jackson that he’s got the wrong idea and admits Kendall shot David and that’s why she’s been so close with Caleb lately.

Cara becomes frustrated after Tad declines her offer of help on his investigation.  Knowing Jake was the one to put the kibosh on it, she asks him not to act differently towards her now that he knows the truth of her leukemia. Kendall barely survives her collapse and David is unlocked from his cell to help revive her. Madison’s pregnancy starts to show & Scott helps her to cover up her bump in front of Bianca. Madison drives Ryan to the hospital after learning about Kendall’s collapse and they share memories of their relationship.  Greenlee’s grateful Madison didn’t let Ryan get behind the wheel because he had been drinking at Krystal’s. Despite Ryan’s admission to Greenlee that they can get through anything she still holds back from telling him about Madison’s pregnancy.  JR wants to keep good ties with Marissa after the divorce and seemingly cut ties with Annie.  Marissa and JR agree to be good parents to AJ and remain friends. Annie gets worried JR’s breaking up with her when he says she just ruined everything and can’t take it anymore. Scott starts to take his relationship with Madison more serious than just a fling but when they’re by Kendall’s he notices the longing in her eyes towards Ryan.

As she’s rushing home she sees a hallucination of Marissa and winds up crashing her car into the ambulance carrying Kendall, Griffin, Jake and Cara.

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.
