Very sad episode, I will miss both Emily and Bradford. Sad to see the Spinelli role go, he was such a quirky character and brought much needed humour:)

Is Bradford gone? I can’t believe I haven’t read anything about this!

Is he really not coming back? 🙁

I’m devastated that yet again one of my favorites is gone. Emily is one the the sweetest ladies ever. She took the time to meet me in CA after her event. I couldn’t get to go. I stood outside for 2.5 hrs to see her. She made sure I got my picture. I will miss the quirkiness of Ellie. But I will never stop being a fan of her ever. Best of Luck Emily!

I could not agree more, Blythe. Ellie was a breath of fresh air–she was smart, incredibly sweet, self evolved, independent and yes, lovely. I especially loved her when she told Spinelli why she did not want to put more kids in the world because it would only add to over population, not to mention giving them a future where the eco-system was being eroded by climate change. I mean, here we had an assertion of science over ignorance. So Eli leaves and we are left with who? Oh yes, Sparkle Pony whose IQ matches the size of her horse shoes.

I will miss Ellie and Spinelli. I loved the role of Ellie played by Emily Wilson. I want to wish Emily and Bradford the best of luck.

I loved the freshness and vivacity she brought to her role in addition to nailng the quirkiness. I had a sincere wish that maybe TPTB would ultimately write her as the missing Q heir. She more than held her own in the few scenes she shared with Jane Elliot and I found her to be a worthy rival for Maxie when it came to BAs Damian Spinelli. She truly had me indecisive as to who I wanted him to be with. Of the new characters introduced under this regime, she easily out distances any of the others. And that makes me sad, as much as BA leaving also. I’ll look forward to her appearance on “Castle” and anything else she books. All the best Miss Wilson!

always sad to see characters we’ve gotten used to go. if we’re to believe what we’re watching…if only for a moment in time…it’s like losing a “real” friend. that’s part of the addiction of soaps…getting immersed in a fictional world and “attached” to fictional characters. when they leave…it’s a loss. but, where there’s soap, there’s hope! LOL. maybe spinellii and ellie will pop in down the road.

I always thought Ellie shouldve been a Quartimaine or revealed to be someone else…she really didnt have much of a connection to the people of PC like she should of to make her more interesting but i liked her and i liked her with Spinnelli…GH needed cast trimming but not these two…they’ll e missed! She could be a big primetime star and Bradford too…he’d be good as one of the gang on The Big Bang Theory…imo.

Not really sad, as they weren’t favourite characters of mine. However, I think they were a bit under used.

Sorry to see her character leave GH. There’s about a dozen that I’d rather have seen go (starting with Sonny).

General Hospital

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
