Why isn’t Chandler Massey going to be on??? I only watch Days of Our Lives, so will not be tuning in for this. Unless Chandler turned it down, he should be on with the rest of the winners.

I watched and I thought I was going to cry. A show dedicating an entire hour to the Daytime Emmys (when they didn’t even win!), honouring the winners and gossiping about the ceremony’s happenings was so appreciated! Moreover, they didn’t spend the hour talking about GMA VS Today, the Judge shows or other talk shows, they mostly stayed on the topic of soaps and actors and I for one loved it! While it was too bad for any DAYS representation, maybe their strict schedules just couldn’t be adjusted to spend some time away to film on the show (though Deidre… Read more »

Sorry , but no show that has taken over the spot where a soap was will never be watched in my home, no matter who is on, all the networks killed the soaps so we should kill there afternoon ratings whether we watched or not. Daytime is for soaps not trashy, Talk, food, news, or that self help crap.

I’ve never watched The Talk and don’t plan to in the future. That said, I feel they need to be commended for having soap actors on as guests, especially the ones from ABC. At least they were willing to honor the Emmy winners and celebrate the soap genre. That’s a hell of a lot more than ABC has done!

I have to respectfully disagree with you Mary fergan, abc has had soap stars on there dumb shows, Laura wright showed up on the chew and we were not to happy about her little visit to a show that replaced a soap opera like the talk did, the talk replaced as the world turns, so no one should have showed up emmy win or not. However I do agree with you that abc has shunned the soaps and they are paying for it in the rating games.

I apologise, I did not watch As the World Turns, so I wasn’t thinking of that aspect of it. I was just making a point about how pathetic ABC is when it comes to promoting and congratulating GH, the only soap left to us on that network.

I never watched as the world turns either but I know a few people that did and they are crushed like we are, Until the soaps were canceled at abc I didn’t care one way or the other but now I feel different and feel any soap that was let go and replaced by a dumb talk, food, or news show I won’t watch no matter what network they were on. And I really wish the soaps stars would do the same, when they show up on those shows I could just scream at them nooooooooooooooooooo don’t do it, but… Read more »

All I know is hes tears seemed genuine in that one scene with Geary brought me to feel Lucks intervention if I’m not mistaken for his dad.
Jackson drew you in and you felt that heart wrenching reaching out, you really did.

Christel Khalil (Lily)…please! She couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag!

Really enjoyed seeing Christel, one of the Best Actors on that horrid Dead Show Walking Y&R, along with Jonathan and Heather Tom on TheTalk! Smart move by the show to also have GH cast on, since neither of their Shows were Emmy worthy in the Writing/Production Department, but I would have loved to have seen Chandler as well.

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
