Janet tends to Dusty for the moment, as he’s still recuperating from his fights at Avalon Castle.  They kiss, but soon Janet’s having contractions.  He brings her to the hospital where the doctor does a sonogram.  Dusty has a copy and talks to John about it, speculating that the baby is bigger than expected because it’s actually Dusty’s. At EOD, John has Dusty’s cup tested against the DNA for Janet’s baby’s father. Liberty gets into F.I.T. from the waiting list, but is reluctant to go because of the baby on the way.  Faith encourages her to go, mostly because she’s jealous of Liberty’s and Parker’s relationship. She sees them at Al’s, Parker telling Liberty a secret of his own. Faith later tells Janet about Liberty’s having gotten in.  Janet is excited for Liberty and wants her to pursue her dreams despite the baby, because Janet’s done it before and moreover she’s not alone this time.  Liberty suggests to Faith that she be more honest with Parker, since that’s how she’ll win his heart.

Parker and Sage see that Jack and Carly are happy.  Sage hopes this means they’ll get married again, and wants to prod them in that direction.  Parker thinks if the status quo works, they shouldn’t mess it up by getting married again.  Sage leaves a picture of one of their earlier weddings on the couch, where Jack and Carly later find it.  They talk about how things have gone wrong in the past, but soon Jack is ready to propose.  But he gets a call that Janet’s having contractions.  They go to the hospital and later return, and Jack picks up where he left off, asking Carly to marry him.  It’s Carly and Jack’s wedding day. Carly’s nervous about the wedding. Gwen brings in Rosanna hoping her presence will help. Carly’s thrilled Jack tracked Ro down and the sisters reconcile. Gwen and Ro give Carly some alone time to collect herself. Carly leaves the house and goes to the Snyder pond. Carly accidentally drops the compass into the pond and Jack finds her in a tizzy unable to find it. Jack reassures her that they no longer need the compass to find each other.  Carly shares a warm moment with Gwen, Ro and Molly. They’ll all give her a flower for her bouquet.  Jack thanks Parker, Will and Holden for being there for him. He never thought, after Brad’s death, he’d feel this happy again. Carly and Jack are wed. Gwen, Rosanna, and Molly participate in the ceremony. Everyone’s thrilled when it goes off without a hitch – even with Craig present.

Lily and Gabriel warn Craig not to attend the wedding but he shows up anyway. Holden and Lily grow closer over their family.  Molly and Holden make up, in no small part because of Lily’s polite prodding. Parker tells everyone that he plans to be a cop, and go to police academy instead of college. Carly and Jack are nervous but supportive. Parker kisses Faith. Gabriel tells Craig he’s moving back to Montega. Craig flips out. Rosanna encourages Craig to let Gabriel go. Craig wishes Gabriel well and hugs him. Craig offers to buy Rosanna a drink and she accepts.  Liberty, however, is concerned about the whereabouts of her mother. Liberty tries to reach her, but the call goes straight to voicemail.

Dusty helps Janet decorate the cabin Jack and Carly will spend their honeymoon in. Dusty falls off a ladder, but is fine. Janet’s water breaks.  Carly and Jack leave their wedding and go to the cabin for their honeymoon. There they find Dusty injured and Janet having major contractions. With emotions running high, they all prepare to help Janet give birth in the cabin. With no time left, Jack, Carly, and Dusty pull together to help Janet deliver her baby in the cabin. Jack drives them to the hospital so Janet and the baby can be checked out. Jack discovers Carly weak, but before he can find a nurse to examine her they run into John telling Dusty that he’s the father of Janet’s baby. They’re all stunned. Dusty couldn’t be happier that John went behind his back and conducted a DNA test. Jack takes the news in stride and focuses on handing Carly off to a nurse.  Dusty goes to Janet and tells her the news. She feels for Jack, but she’s thrilled. Liberty and Teri arrive and congratulate the happy parents. Liberty finds Jack in the corridor and sympathizes with his loss. She encourages him to talk to Janet. Janet assures Jack that he’ll play a role in the baby’s life. Liberty says goodbye to her mother and the rest of her family, new and old. Dusty assures Teri and Liberty that he’ll close on the house he promised Janet and add a new addition to welcome all of them. Jack watches the happy family moment only to be pulled away by Carly who’s heard back about her tests. In private, Carly breaks the news to Jack – she’s pregnant.  They kiss passionately.

Lucinda consoles Luke over his loss. She assures him Reid will be remembered – she’ll also start a fellowship in his name. Luke’s further upset when he hears that Lucinda and Lily are fighting. Lucinda’s convinced there’s nothing she can do to win Lily back. She’s grateful when Noah interrupts Luke’s speech about how the loss of Reid has taught him that life is too short to waste holding grudges. Noah compliments Luke on finding his calling in his dedication to the hospital and Reid’s vision. When Luke realizes Noah’s at Java to work, he refuses to let him stay in Oakdale and give up his dreams in LA. Luke drags Noah to WOAK, where he gives him a piece of cinematic equipment. They realize they first met there. Luke and Noah acknowledge that they helped each other grow and come into their own. They share a warm goodbye.

John tries to compel Lily to forgive Lucinda. Lily won’t budge and Holden supports her. John runs into Lucinda at the Lakeview Lounge and admits that he spoke to Lily, to no avail. Lucinda’s downtrodden, even when John offers to take her with him to Amsterdam. Lucinda jumps at the opportunity to make amends when Lily invites her over, but when she arrives, Lily confesses that she’s didn’t invite Lucinda over to patch things up between them. She wants her mother to get her own life. Lucinda decides to take John up on his offer. Holden’s proud of Lily. They talk about growing up and starting their lives anew – and so, for a start, Holden kisses her.

In this final episode, Bob spends an otherwise ordinary day at his office, packing up his things before he and Kim move out to Arizona.  As he packs, he reflects on his life and long career as a doctor in this town.  He’s seen love and loss, birth and death, as many others in Oakdale have.  Alison wakes Casey up on this, the day they move to Carbondale.  Chris proposes to Katie, and she accepts.  Holden goes fishing with Ethan.  Tom and Margo, and Chris and Katie, agree to swap houses, one for a hopefully growing family, one for a pair of new empty-nesters.  Dusty and Janet introduce Jack and Carly to their baby, Lorenzo Dustin Donovan.  Jack and Carly are themselves almost a trimester into Carly’s pregnancy, and Sage can’t wait to tell the world.  Faith gets Parker to supervise her driving, but she speeds and gets them into trouble. Parker tries to take the heat for it, and Jack and Carly recognize themselves in the teens.  Luke is bereft after the loss of Reid, but he finds some solace in his family, especially Natalie, and in being there for them.  Paul wants out of business with Barbara, but he and Emily are surprised when Henry and Barbara meet them for dinner and Barbara has paperwork of her own that she wants Paul to sign.  She wants out, too.  It looks like Lily and Holden will find their way back to each other.  Craig wants the same for him and Rosanna, whom Johnny is excited to see.  Susan says goodbye to Bob.  Lucinda and John are themselves once again a couple, as Lisa supports them.  Kim gives Bob all the time he needs in his office.  Bob pockets his nameplate.  He spins the globe on his desk and leaves, but it lights up and keeps turning.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Leave it to a beloved MVP of General Hospital, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), to pull out all the stops in the culmination of Maxie’s storyline with Peter August (Wes Ramsey), and that’s what viewers witnessed this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Maxie manipulated the manipulator during a stunning sequence of events.  In story, while recovering at General Hospital after giving birth in the woods, Maxie lays it on thick to ensure that Peter never gets near their baby Louise – who is actually being passed off as “Bailey”, the baby of Valentin and Brook Lynn – not kidnapped by the naughty nurse, Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown).  But in Maxie’s chain of events to Peter, she tears into him and tells him that Chloe kidnapped her, drugged her to induce labor, and took off with Louise.  Peter is stunned.  Maxie goes on to explain that Chloe said she was working for him and that Peter planned to take her and the baby out of the country,

At that point, Maxie plays on Peter’s psyche, telling him she wishes the dark side of him would return to get the nurse for what she did.  It is then she gets Peter right where she wants him when he admits that Chloe isn’t the nurse’s real name.   Maxie then turns up the heat on Peter and reveals that Chloe must have been fed information on her from Peter! And that the only explanation is that Peter is horrible person.

Then, Maxie tells Peter their baby is gone, it’s all his fault, and he hopes he is terrified, and that she is repulsed by him, especially every time he touched her.  She then confronts him about killing Drew Cain, Franco Baldwin and anyone else who got in his way.   He says it’s not too late for them, and that he did it all for her and Louise.

Boom! Maxie has got Peter’s confession taped on a file on her phone which she immediately sends to Mac.  That sends Peter running and well, we know, or we think we know where that led, to Peter’s fall down the stairs thanks to Finn (Michael Easton).

Later when Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives at GH with baby Louise, she sits outside Maxie’s room as emotional Maxie sees her daughter in the arms of another mother, and is heartbroken that she can’t be with the little girl she just gave birth to.

Over the last three episodes. Kirsten Storms has reminded us all of why she has the innate ability and combination to play strong, determined, vulnerable, loveable and devastated with such ease.  Storms gave us a bravura performance to remember, slicing Peter’s charade in half, playing beats of Maxie’s fictionalized account, with Maxie’s real account of life with Henrik Faison aka Peter.   For all of this and more, Michael Fairman TV names Kirsten Storms work, The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Kirsten in the pivotal scenes with Maxie and Peter, and the emotional fallout that followed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, check out some moments from Maxie giving Peter a piece of her mind!

Roger Howarth Returns to General Hospital and Debuts His New Character

Thursday was a special day for longtime fans of General Hospital and those of fan favorite Roger Howarth.  Today, Howarth returned in his new role on the ABC daytime drama series, who’s name is “Austin” and that viewers learn is a doctor, and that is all we know thus far.

General Hospital and Howarth previously noted that even though he was killed-off a few months ago as Franco Baldwin after he was shot in a struggle with Peter August (Wes Ramsey) that he would make his re-emergence on the canvas sometime in May.

Now with summer right around, Howarth is back.  When we first see his new soap incarnation of “Austin”, he comes to the rescue of Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms), who has gone into labor and found her way into the woods to escape the clutches of evil Nurse Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown) and Peter’s machinations.

And … as she just so happens to need a doctor, lo and behold there is Austin in the woods from what appears to be a hike, who ultimately helps deliver Maxie’s baby girl.  Trouble is, at the end of the episode, it appears that baby Louise might not be breathing.

In a summer preview for GH, in the brand new issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands this weekend, GH head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor teased, “Roger’s new character has an interest in a prominent Port Charles family.  He’ll shake up the canvas in surprising ways as summer unfolds.”

So, were you happy to see Roger back on GH today? Do you like that he is seemingly playing a doctor? Share your theories on his new character”Austin” via the comment section. But first check out, Howarth’s debut as Austin in the clips below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sean Donely’s Funeral Brings Unexpected & Emotional Moments for His Friends and Loved Ones

If you caught Friday’s emotional episode of General Hospital, it was the airing of the highly-anticipated tribute episode to the late John Reilly with an homage to his beloved character, Sean Donely.

What made this such a well-conceived hour of television was it truly harkened back to the 80’s hey day of GH, had a built-in story that brought Reilly’s real-life daughter, Caitlin Reilly, into the fold, found ways to integrate classic clips of Sean and his spy friends and colleagues, and viewers even got to hear the voice of the one and only Sharon Wyatt as Tiffany Hill Donely.

The episode starts in Ireland where Sean’s gravesite service has concluded and things are icy between Anna (Finola Hughes) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner).  As Anna tries to reach out to Felicia she is not having it, but Mac (John J. York) hopes the two longtime best friends will find a way to work this out.

Meanwhile, Annie (Caitlin Reilly) points Sean’s friends (who have traveled all the way from Port Charles to Ireland to be there for the funeral) to the Inn where they will be staying.  Robert talks to Annie about applying to the bureau. She says she went through the training program, took the oath, but was never called for the final test. She just assumed she didn’t make the cut.  Robert also explains they need access to some of Sean’s old files on another matter of dire consequences, but Annie won’t give up the code.

As Laura (Genie Francis) goes outside to call Tiffany, we hear the voice of Sharon Wyatt talk to her dear friend, the Mayor of Port Charles, and Laura tells Tiffany how much she misses her old friend, as Tiffany recall her life with Sean and viewers see a montage of Sean and Tiffany scenes through the years.  Next, Laura is grabbed and a clue is left behind in her room – a Mexican flag and a toy gun as a remembrance of when Sean ran illegal arms and was on the wrong side of the law.  Next, Monica (Leslie Charleson) is seemingly grabbed, and a clue is left behind, a trinket from Mount Rushmore.

Later, Felicia rips into Anna for allowing Peter into their lives and not protecting Maxie. Anna promises Felicia she’s trying to put Peter behind bars for good and to find justice for Maxie.  As Felicia and Anna flashback through moments in their lives with Sean, Felicia tells Anna that he would not have wanted them to be at odds and so she forgives Anna, and the two women hug as Mac looks on.

Mac is the next friend of Sean’s to apparently get kidnapped. That is followed by Robert (Tristan Rogers) getting conked over the head.  Annie finds Robert’s phone, and she finds a magnet in Anna’s purse which wiped out the computer earlier that Anna and Robin (Kimberly McCullough) were trying to access to check the security footage at the Inn.

Annie now believes Anna and Robert are in on what’s happening. Anna again says she wants access to Sean’s file, but Annie refuses to grant access to her. She says she’s loyal to the WSB. It is then Anna tells Annie that this was her final test for the WSB and she passed it!  As all of Sean’s friends who ‘disappeared’ return to watch, Robert gives Annie her dad’s WSB badge number and they congratulate her in a very hankie-inducing moment.

Later, everyone gathers to toast Sean, as they raise their glass it is Tristan Rogers, who broke our hearts when he says there will never be another one like Sean.  In real life, Tristan was close to John Reilly and publicly had admitted how devastated he was by his former castmates passing.

In Port Charles, it was nice to see Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) part of the tribute episode to, and in a touching scene BJ’s heart that beats inside Maxie was brought up reminding everyone of that emotional story as well.

The episode was filled with several hankie moments and how wonderful was Caitlin Reilly as Annie!  Her dad would be so proud.  And as for Finola Hughes, Kristina Wagner, Tristan Rogers, Kimberly McCullough, Leslie Charleson, Genie Francis, Sharon Wyatt by audio, how touching it was for longtime viewers to see all of these GH veterans together to remind us all of what brought us into GH in the first place.

Kudos to head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and their team for a clever way to honor Sean Donely with the passage of his daughter into the WSB.
