Randi deflects when Frankie brings up pregnancy but gives in to passion and the two make love in the elevator. Jake promises Amanda that everything is going to be ok between them. For their “auction date”, Cara brings Ricky to the hospital to cheer up some patients. She picks up on his barrage of questions regarding Griffin and defends her brother; she won’t tell him to back off Kendall. Ricky momentarily snaps but she holds her ground until Tad shows up and whisks her away. Kendall and Griffin go to the park on their date and as she plies him with wine and asks question after question. Ricky watches when Griffin drops Kendall back home. JR takes Marissa over to see Bianca so she can deliver some good news that Reese has agreed to joint custody. JR promises AJ that they will be a family again. After Colby invites Asher to sit and join her he assumes that she is the one who bought him for the auction date. When she says it really wasn’t her, Asher suggests they still have the date but Colby insists she can’t because he isn’t Damon. Caleb swears to his son he didn’t set up the date and Asher believes him. Alone, Colby tells her online viewers that she doesn’t want to risk loving again. Caleb admits his feelings to Erica but she claims to not feel the same and asks him to stop. Erica lashes out but Caleb says he will wait for her. After Erica interrupts a fun moment between Krystal and Jack, she warns Krystal that she’s wasting her time trying to move in on Jack. Erica says she wants to get married tonight. Jesse takes Angie to the Justice of the Peace Parlor where they got married and they envision how it used to be. Angie feels a contraction but claims she’s fine, until another pain hits and she realizes something is wrong.

Erica admits to Jack the reason why she wants to get married immediately, to prove to Caleb that she does love Jack and plus there’s no point in waiting and he agrees. Jackson plans a trip to St. Barts and tells Erica that once they get there they’ll get married. As the couple embrace, Erica ignores a call from Caleb. Bianca tells Erica that she wishes she could believe that she wants to be with Jack completely but she knows she’s trying to challenge Caleb. Caleb learns from Erica’s maid that she has gone off to get married. Jesse is unsuccessful in getting an ambulance as Angie continues to suffer contractions and it’s up to him to help deliver the baby. When Marissa comes over to the mansion to try and calm down AJ, she sees a contract for Reese that was drawn up by JR. He explains that he did it so Reese would speed up the custody case to work on a big project. In a phone conversation with Bianca, Marissa says that she doesn’t need to be talked out of spending more time with JR as she is having fun. After hanging up she returns to JR and AJ to play one more game which leaves AJ happy. Kendall admits to Greenlee the reason she can get close to Griffin is because she just needs a friend and he realizes that. Griffin tells Cara he had a great time with Kendall but defends that it wasn’t a date. When the two bump into each other at Confusion things seem a little awkward until Kendall says she is going to try and get him the money from Zach. Griffin covers that he’s thrilled and they both realize once he gets the money he will be able to leave town. Both hide their disappointment over the thought. Amanda assures Jake and Cara she is unaffected by their partnership and urges them to get to work.

Kendall notices a woman outside Griffin’s office when she shows up for her checkup and he claims she’s the one who bugged him to take her out to lunch. The two shares a bit of awkwardness and Kendall admits the doctor/patient relationship was a bit blurred but she doesn’t mind because she had a nice time with him. When a persistent Sara won’t leave Griffin alone, Kendall comes to his rescue. Ricky tells Kendall that he’s got tickets for them (including the boys) to go and see a game. He’s a bit unhappy but covers it up when Kendall says that she plans on expediting the sale of the casino. Ricky reveals to Diana that he is working on the next part of his plan to seduce Kendall but will handle her the way he wants. Amanda makes it clear to Cara she didn’t appreciate her early morning call and says she should remember which Martin she’s married to. Tad lightens Cara’s bad mood and gets her to laugh it off, just as Jake and Amanda seem to get on the same page about Cara infecting their personal life.

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.
