GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis’ Life Further Implodes, Olivia Vows Revenge, Nina’s About to Get the Truth

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it excellent performances, and continues to be the show in recent months that has given us the best cliffhangers week after week.

In story, Alexis, who has now been taken into police custody for attacking Franco, (but instead ends up injecting Dante with a syringe filled with an overdose of lidocaine), is with Mac who tries to make her see how her drinking has completely trashed her life, and on her birthday no less!  Mac says she’ll be charged with murder if Dante dies; even though Alexis says she was only trying to protect Sam from Franco.

Olivia, who is beside herself heads to General Hospital, where she learns Dante is in critical condition and that Alexis is the one who gave him the injection which put him in this state.  When she finds out more details of what happened to her son, she is even more confused as to why Dante would run-in to save Franco.

Now in the chapel, Robert joins her and tries to console her.  Ned shows up and Robert tells him to leave after figuring out from Olivia that Alexis and Ned slept together.  After praying for Dante, Olivia leaves the chapel and outside of it, swears she will get revenge on Alexis and make her pay for having an affair with her husband and now almost killing her son!

Back at the police station, Mac believes Alexis’ life crumbled to pieces because of Julian Jerome, and she is now throwing her life away, again.  Mac gets a call from the hospital where he learns that Dante will survive, but he tells Alexis she is being charged with aggravated assault and attempted murder.

Monica learns from Ned and Tracy what happened while she was at a medical conference and how Tracy framed Alexis.  Monica urges Tracy to hightail it out of the country.  It’s the only way Ned will forgive her for what she did.  Later, a police officer shows up with a warrant for Tracy, but Monica says Tracy is not at the Q’s and has left the country.

At the Metro Court following the Sasha/Jackie interview, Nina, who is reeling that Sasha had the other half of the necklace she believes was with her true bio-daughter, puts the two pieces together and Carly’s cover-up begins to become exposed.  Michael tells Nina that Avery found the necklace in the woods near the family cabin. He then shares that the last person to stay at the cabin, as far as he knows, was Nelle when she kidnapped Wiley.   Then, Valentin reminds everyone that Phyllis took Nina’s baby to Florida; which prompts Michael to share that Nelle was from Florida. Carly is really squirming now.   Nina wonders if Nelle is her daughter then.  Jax says he cannot lie to her anymore and needs to tell her the truth! Carly is busted, unless Jax says something else?  We won’t know till Monday’s episode!

Elsewhere, Phyllis takes Sonny (aka Mike) to get checked out at the clinic for his mental state.  Sonny is very manic and feels there is nothing wrong with him and he is on top of the world.  The doctor checks the blood work Sonny had previously and reveals there was a trace of lithium in it, leading to the conclusion that “Mike” has bipolar disorder.  Phyllis, who shares that she did a bad thing in her lifetime (the Nina baby ordeal) that she regrets, wants “Mike” to take the pill.  He apparently does, but with a smile. Did he swallow the pill?

Throughout the show, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), Lisa LoCicero, (Olivia) Jane Elliot (Tracy), Cynthia Watros (Nina) and Maurice Benard (Sonny) all had moments that kept us riveted to the episode.

So, what do you think Olivia will do to Alexis?  Will Nina learn the whole truth and nothing but the truth from Jax?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

All in for vengeful Olivia! You don’t scorn a girl from Bensonhurst and get away with it. (Okay, maybe Ava got away with what she did to Connie, but I digress). Hopefully Tracy will be cleared to return home for another annual visit at the end of the year. At that point, she can meet her great grandchild. One down, one to go… the Nina’s daughter reveal is finally unraveling. Next up, time for Heinrich to get his comeuppance. Really nice to see Carly squirm for a bit. She’s been on that high horse for quite a while. With Sonny… Read more »

Nancy/Alexis is giving us a powerful performance. She is bringing it home. Franco- he had zero control with 1st tumor and with the 2nd- I don’t believe that’s his problem, it’s the mind/exchange that’s the problem this time. As for that the heart necklace junk- well, I’d luv to put that heart where the sun doesn’t shine and get it out of my face. I’m waiting for the Cassadine, that Helena feared, to become who and what he is a true Cassisine and that Valentin will give me earthshaking chaos suspense. Dante’s story is junk- the writers could have done… Read more »

I agree with most of what you said except I think it would be more fun for him to find Carly and Jason together. They are all over each other as it is. Who does Sonny run to whenever he has a hangnail?

hi Violet 🙂 Hope you are doing well.

Carly and Jason, I dunno- they don’t have the
hot sex thing between them, in my opinion.

But- whichever, I’d like to have Carly with someone doing the nasty..

I always wanted Ava and Sonny as a couple.
Them as a couple would make for some good stories and Sonny, in ways, would have met his match (old Ava version).

Longtime couples are beyond boring, nothing new or different just ho-hum.

I want Valentin to come alive!!!
I need a true blood Cassisine wreaking havoc
I miss the spellbinding hanging on the edge Cassisines..

I agree with you with practically everything you stated: Valentin -agree ; Sonny catching Carly- agree ; irritating Sam – doubly agree . Oh wait a minute- I said practically ; I’m changing that to everything that you said! Good job!

Olivia on the warpath? That maniac Alexis finally getting the wakeup call? I’m looking forward to some fun. Carly being the center of Nina’s baby drama? Not so much. And I’ll be sorry if/when Chase is revealed as Finn’s son. Chase is so adorable when he’s around his big bro; he can barely stop smiling. It’s bad enough that smug, self-righteous Michael still punishes him for protecting Wiley.

And maybe Sasha is actually Jackie’s daughter which would make for Chase and Sasha to be half siblings, which is yet another reason for them to not have done anything other than fake make out on the couch to make Willow weep. I didn’t watch GH/Jackie back in the day, but I’m assuming there is a batch of time (9 or 10 months at least) after she left Port Charles before she ever met Finn or Gregory. I don’t think we have ever figured out Sasha’s DNA…

I feel sorry for Alexis. For such a smart woman, she sure can cause herself a lot of grief! Between her family and love affairs, etc. her drinking obviously making everything worse, she can’t win for losing. With her very big heart, I hope Olivia can give her a break. It’s not like Alexis and Ned set out to have this big night of romance. They were comiserating while drinking which led from bad to worse. Ned was hurt because Olivia left with Scorpio to see Dante, after his own daughter had just had her throat slit. He was trying… Read more »

Forgive Alexis? Violet, are you married? If your husband cheated on you would you forgive him? I hope not! Once a cheater, always.

I agree, Timmm. Ned didn’t even seem that sorry about it. He wanted Olivia to forgive, forget, and sweep it under the rug all in the same breath. Let him stew for a few months…then dump him.

Would you ,Timmm , want to be forgiven if you cheated? It may be a Soap; however , it ‘s a reality question.

I wouldnt expect to be forgiven. Once you lose trust in your partner, what is left? What is true, what is a lie? No, walk away, suck it up and know that who ever you cheated on will be a better person by you making this decision.

It’s not right to have Tracy return without Luke..
It’s only good if Luke is back with her.
I’d rather have Luke return than Tracy-

But- the writers don’t write what I want lol.

That’s the defense Alexis is going with. I get that will probably get her off, but it shouldn’t because Sam wasn’t in any danger from Franco. Sam and Alexis were actually at Franco’s workplace to go in on Liz at her workplace. Plus Alexis was already drunk when they went to GH. I kind of want them to do the unpredictable and throw Alexis in jail and charge her.

I think Nancy was phenomenal, especially in the scenes with John where she was crying over what Alexis did to Dante. It was intense! Lisa really brings it home as Olivia struggles with her growing rage. Can’t wait to see what unravels there. I wouldn’t mind if the whole “Nelle is Nina’s daughter” story had a final shocking turn and Nelle really WASN’T Nina’s daughter; that she stole the necklace from someone. It’s a story that is getting long in the tooth. It feels like all the pieces GH wants aren’t in place yet, so they keep dragging it out.… Read more »

Now that Nina is realizing she has a grandson, I hope they will do a DNA with her and Wylie so as we don’t have to drag this on for months.

Lock Alexis away with Blackie! Liv and Robert can fall in love. She seems more his type than Ned. Ned needs a new love. Maybe a new character with a corporate motive. What about Jessica Collins?

Jax is THE man!

Either Sonny is going to know a nurse at this hospital or someone will recognize him as the “Godfather of PC!” I hope he finds Morgan but it is a new actor.

Seems inevitable now that Nina knows about Nelle. With Nelle still playing dead, Nina would feel like she has to somehow “confirm” this story with Phyllis, even though Phyllis previously said that she didn’t have detailed information about the “adoptive” parents of Nina’s child, other than them being from Florida. In any case, Nina will probably go looking for Phyllis, hoping she’s got some piece of useful information that will give her a definitive answer, and she will walk into the bar and see Sonny at work….. and then because she’s pissed off at Carly, probably keep that information to… Read more »

I heard what you said may happen, Nina spotting Sonny and keeping it to herself. They say Sonny will stay away from PC for some time. Probably showing up just in time to spoil Cyrus’s evil takeover! GH keeps a much better pace with their stories compared to Y&R!

GH was on-fire last week! Loved the necklace reveal with Nina, Carly, Ava, Nicholas, Michael, etc. Also, Tracy fleeing the country! Alexis arrested (yay–she can write her “memoirs” in prison, heh)! What a great week!! I normally don’t care much for Sonny, but I like his storyline with amnesia and the bar-family (Phyllis and husband).

I am really enjoying the show again but I wish the storyline about the “half hearts” would just go away and hoping Nelle does not come back. Nelle’s storyline is old and I am not feeling her drama again.

I want Nelle back ; yet, I feel that the writers should bring it to an end with heavy fallout for Carly and Jax.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What’s Up With Elizabeth?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, finally moved the story of the haunting of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) along a bit, after it has been a very slow build for the audience. As it turns out, and with the new developments, it appears that Liz has been going in and out of a catatonic state, while sleeping walking.

With a tip from Violet (Jophielle Love), Finn (Michael Easton), who is chatting with Gregory (Gregory Harrison), recalls Liz was having trouble sleeping and was that she given a sleeping aid. He thinks he may be on to something so he decides to go to Liz’s house to talk to her.

Meanwhile, Liz comes to her house and tears Finn and Violet out of the picture that Violet drew, and then gets a scissors and starts cutting pieces off of the drawing, bit by bit.

Cameron (William Lipton) comes home and see his mother.  She does not respond to him and appears in a trance-like state. He is getting more upset by the moment, and then Finn arrives on the scene.

Finn is able to get the scissors from Liz, and also get her to snap out of her trance.  Liz talks with Finn and wonders what is happening? She doesn’t even remember how she got home.  When Cameron fills Liz in on what she was doing … cutting up the drawing and all … Finn tells Liz he believes she is the one who is haunting herself.

In tears, if what Finn is claiming is true, then it is she who is responsible for slashing her dress, setting fire to Franco’s studio, and hitting Chase over the head.  In that moment, a teary-eyed Liz recognizes that something is terribly wrong, saying, “What’s happening to me?”

Finn promises Liz they will get to the bottom of this as Cameron looks on.

So, what is happening to Liz and why? Is this just a case of another sleeping pill storyline on soaps, where someone does not recall their actions or where they are going in the middle of the night a la Nighttime Hope on DAYS? Is someone controlling Liz to make her do these things?  Is something else physically wrong with Liz causing her behavior? Share your thoughts on this storyline … and where you think this is all heading via the comment section below.

GH Alum Sydney Mikayla Talks On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination, Decision To Exit & Her Former Co-Stars

It’s been quite the banner year for Sydney Mikayla (Ex-Trina Robinson, GH) thus far, and she topped it off with her second Daytime Emmy nomination, when a few weeks ago she landed in the Younger Performer in a Drama Series category.  That means, Mikayla will be vying for the gold statuette, but also against some of her dear friends and former co-stars from General Hospital.

Back in March, Mikayla revealed she was leaving the ABC daytime drama series to focus on college full-time where she is a freshman at UCLA. With Sydney’s departure came recasting the role of Trina and the part went in to the capable hands of Tabyana Ali, who is currently appearing on the soap and carrying on the Trina Robinson torch.

As the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are just around the corner (they air live next month on June 24th on CBS), Michael Fairman TV caught up with the very busy Mikayla, to get her take on all things Emmy including: the scenes she chose for her nominated reel, working alongside with Nicholas Alexander Chavez and creating what would become the popular “Sprina”, the factors that led to her departure and more. Here’s what Sydney shared below.

 

Your former co-stars and fellow ‘Younger Actor’ nominees, William Lipton (Cameron) and Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer) appeared on my Daytime Emmy Nominations livestream special, and both share how thrilled they were that that you got nominated.  I know you’re friends with them, but they just could not have spoken more highly of you.

SYDNEY:  That’s so sweet!  I’ve loved working with them for so long.  It just feels so great to know that they said that.

Photo: ABC

What was on your Emmy reel submission that landed you the nomination?

SYDNEY:  I was a little bit nervous this year, more than last year, because last year was the first time that I ever had a storyline.  So, for this year, I was definitely like, “I’m not really sure how this is going to go,” because there’s just so many new elements that were happening with everything that was going on, for example: Trina getting a more acclimated relationship with her mom, and then we had Cyrus (Jeff Kober) come in for a little bit.  I chose the best moments that really showcased my acting, even though it wasn’t a cohesive storyline from start to finish on my reel.  I’m really glad it worked!  I was a little more on pins and needles for this one, and ultimately, it turned out great.

Photo: IG

Was Nicholas Alexander Chavez in any of the scenes you submitted?

SYDNEY:  He was! I got to show that soft side of Trina, which I really didn’t think we got to see, especially in my first Emmy reel, and her being vulnerable.  We never see Trina really make a mistake, so that was really fun.  Not that her relationship was a mistake, but more that we never get to see her slip up or say the wrong thing, or just put herself out there, and put her heart on the line. I enjoyed being able to play that and then being able to put it in my reel.  Nicholas just made it so easy … what an amazing co-star.  He just made me feel so comfortable.  It was just really fun to do and to include.  I also had scenes with the teen scene …there’s five of us! Of course, I had to include Trina’s standoff with Esme (Avery Pohl).  I think, it was actually the last clip I put in on my reel.

Which was a great scene!

SYDNEY:  Yes, and Avery is so sweet, but she plays evil so well.  So, that was also so incredible to do, just that standoff of: ‘Who’s going to win!?  Trina?  Esme?  What’s going to happen?  What’s going to go down?’  No one knew, so that was really fun, too.

Photo: JPI

Did you include scenes between you and Eden McCoy (Joss) as bff’s Trina and Joss on your Emmy reel?

SYDNEY:  Oh, of course, of course! It was some of those heartfelt bestie moments of her just kind of consoling me, and making sure everything was okay between Trina and Esme. I like those heartfelt moments that Trina had with one of her closest friends on the show, and a great friend in real life, as well.

When you found out you were nominated, who was the first person you called … or was your phone blowing up and you were receiving lots of congrats?

SYDNEY:  This year, with being on a college campus and being in person for the first time, it’s really easy to get sick.  So, I was not feeling too great. I was sleeping in my dorm when the nominations came out.  I still keep in contact with my makeup artist from the show, Ali, and she’s so sweet.  We were texting, and she was like, “By the way, congrats”, and kind of kept texting me, and I’m like, “Congrats for what?” I looked, and I was like, “Oh my gosh!  I got nominated!”  So that was pretty funny, and I screamed through my whole dorm!  I posted a video on Instagram because I wanted to keep everyone in the loop, and I really do feel so grateful.  I feel all of the support from my friends, and family, and the fans of the show. I always try to make a video every year to try to just be grateful, or say ‘thank you’ because I really want to key everyone into this journey.  It was a little bit of a shock, but definitely in the midst of not feeling too well, it was the highlight of my day, for sure!  Now, I am feeling that heat of finals at school, but I am so excited. The Emmy definitely breaks up the stress a little bit, so I’m very grateful.

Photo: ABC

Was there somebody you called to let them know you were nominated, though?

SYDNEY:  I actually called Nicholas and William, first, to say congratulations.  William had called me before I had woken up, and then I called him back, and then of course, I called my mom and dad.  It was also a surprise to them.  I think it was just because I had been so laser-focused on school that looking at the Emmy nominations really wasn’t the priority this year.

Could you believe how popular ‘Sprina’ became so quickly?  They weren’t even a bonafide duo yet!

SYDNEY:  I could not!  I was really shocked, but I was excited to see how much the fans loved it, and how much the fans kind of lived through it. That in turn, gave us more of that ammo to really build that story and build that tension, and to always kind of play those moments in between.  Nicholas did a really great job of that, and of challenging me to always have that subtext, under the lines.  I was really shocked to see how quickly the popularity of Sprina blew up, but I’m grateful that the fans loved it for as long as they.  I hope that they continue to love it with Tabyana Ali playing the part.  She is such an incredible actress and powerhouse.

Photo: ABC

You were so popular in the role of Trina, and now Tabyana is bringing her take on the role.  Do you check in on GH? 

SYDNEY:  Don’t cancel me, but no! (Laughs) I don’t have time to watch TV!  I’m very serious.  I’ve just had so much going on here.  I’m also part of clubs, and leadership is also something that’s very important to me.  I love planning things, and when you’re planning things, that also takes up your time.  So, doing that along with school and just trying to keep my GPA up, I just don’t have the time to check in on it.  I think that was kind of part of it for me too.  On a spiritual level, I always believe that you can’t receive other things in your life, great things, acting or otherwise, until you are able to let things go, and so for me, I knew when I was leaving, I really would have to leave mentally and physically. As much as I love General Hospital (and I really cannot wait to see everyone in person, I really can’t wait to have that big reunion!), I really don’t feel like any part of me is still clinging on to General Hospital. I’m so grateful that the audience has also received Tabyana so well, because that’s exactly what I’ve always wanted.  So, I’m really happy for her, and I’m really happy for both of us.  I think we are both in a great place.

Was making the decision to leave GH a difficult one for you?

SYDNEY:  Honestly, no.  I always kind of knew in the back of my mind that it would have to come at some point because as much as I love General Hospital, I’d really been working for college for all of my life.  I wish someone had told me that colleges really don’t look at anything past high school because I was working really hard in elementary and middle school too!  But that’s my point, I’ve always had this dream of, “I’m going to go to college.  I’m going to get that second education.  I’m going to do really well.  I need to get my degree, and possibly even get my doctorate.”  We’ll see if I even want to go that far, but I know for sure that going to college and getting that bachelor’s was really important for me.  So, I knew that took precedence over anything else in my life.

Photo: ABC

What are you studying?

SYDNEY:  Right now, I’m studying sociology.  That might change.  Honestly, as a freshman it’s just been really general classes, still kind of general science, general math.  We’ll see as time goes on if I still want to stick with sociology. So, that’s also been really fun, and just meeting people, and experiencing the college life.

You’re in a gender-neutral acting category at the Daytime Emmys …   Outstanding Younger Performer. How do you feel about that because you’re actually competing against your former castmates, Nicholas and William, in the same category?

SYDNEY:  Coming to college, you meet a lot of people who are non-binary. I’ve always wondered how that would work when we are going to have more actors who identify as non-binary as our generation starts to get older and as we start getting cast in these movies. I actually think we are kind of moving towards the future and in the future, it will all be smooshed together for all of the categories.  We are going to eventually do away with the Best Actor and Actress because a lot of people don’t identify as either.  I think either way, whoever wins is going to win.  I’m just really glad to be nominated, and it works for me!

Courtesy/ABC

If a role came up in a movie or project that interested you, would you do it, or are you just only concentrating on your studies?

SYDNEY:  We’ll see kind of where life takes me.  It would definitely depend on so many things, of course, but if an opportunity were to present itself, it would definitely just be by a case-by-case basis.  Of course, I’m definitely open to doing things in summer too. During the school year, like I mentioned, it’s really important for me to get this degree.

Photo: SMikaylaIG/ABC

Is there any favorite moment you had from your time on General Hospital as Trina that you wish you could have included in your Emmy reel, but didn’t?

SYDNEY:  There were so many good moments!  If I could include any moment, I would include one of the blood scenes.  I had never worked with fake blood, and it was sticky, but ultimately a good experience.  I was acting, but there wasn’t much of me talking.  It was more everyone being concerned for me, like, “Why is she covered in blood?  What’s going on?”  So, I don’t think I included that as much, but if they just wanted me to include amazing makeup, then I could have put it in there!  So, it’ll always be in my heart.  It’ll always be in my personal reel, and I hope that counts for something!

Photo: TimSchaeffer

I’m assuming you like picking out a dress, and then walking the red carpet?

SYDNEY:  I do!  It’s actually funny because I don’t usually enjoy hair and makeup on a day-to-day basis, but I do think I enjoy the creativity of doing my own look for the Emmys.  I get to be somewhat a little different, like a super awesome version of myself.  I wonder, for celebrities who have to go to red carpets every week if they really like it, but for me to do it a few times a year, I really love it.  I love choosing the aesthetic that I’m going for.  This year, I’m definitely trying to do something classy and stylish.  I’m super excited for you guys to see because I’m beaming even as I talk about it now!

The Daytime Emmys are back to being in-person, after two years of being virtual.  Didn’t you have to tape an acceptance speech last year when you were nominated, in case your name was called?

SYDNEY:  Yes!  It was so funny, one of our producers, Nneka Garland, called me, and she was like, “Oh, it’s going to be in person,” and it just like, snapped for me: “Oh, this is going to be live!” I’m looking forward to that this year.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone, giving everyone real, in-person hugs!  I can’t wait!

So, are you rooting for Sydney to take home the gold in the Outstanding Younger Performer category at this year’s Daytime Emmys? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GH’s Michael E. Knight Chats On: Taking on the Role of Martin Grey, Friendship with James Patrick Stuart, and All My Children’s Tad

Last Thursday night during a livestream interview, General Hospital’s Michael E. Knight chatted with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel about returning to daytime in the role of legal eagle Martin Grey, and mixing it up with some of the most famous notables and actors that currently and historically have graced the screens on the ABC daytime drama series.

In case you missed it, the replay of the conversation with three-time Daytime Emmy winner is now available.  During the chat, Knight reveals what is has been like to play the on-screen half-brother of Genie Francis (Laura), if he enjoys the courtroom scenes in which Martin had to defend some of the most notorious in town including Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), and more.

Courtesy/ABC

Fans of GH are also enjoying the romantic pairing of Lucy Coe and Martin, pairing Knight with another soap vet, Lynn Herring.  Michael shares that it’s nice to see, and appreciates, the writers creating a fun relationship for a couple that is middle-aged instead of always seeing the younger sets escapades all of the time on daytime TV.

All My Children fans, of course, recall Michael’s memorable performances through the years as Tad Martin, where he became synonymous with Pine Valley.  After AMC came to its conclusion in 2011 on ABC and 2013 with Prospect Park, Knight finally returned to soaps in 2015 in the recurring role of Dr. Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless before joining the cast of GH in 2019.

During the interview, Michael shares behind the scenes stories of working with his on-screen parents, Mary Fickett (Ruth) and Ray MacDonnell (Joe), his enduring on-screen love story with Dixie (Cady McClain), and the heyday of AMC in story, with his on-screen sister, Jenny played by Kim Delaney. When Michael came to GH, viewers recall he actually got to share an inside moment with Kim and the fans, when Martin met Jackie Templeton, then played by Delaney.

During the livestream, Michael recalled several of Tad’s wives, and when one fan asked if Cady McClain might come to GH as Dixie, and that maybe she could be a woman from Martin’s past, Knight shared that it could be interesting.

Photo: ABC

In a surprise appearance later in the livestream, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin, GH), who has an enduring friendship with Michael, and happened to be at Knight’s house, shared some memories of his time as Will Cortlandt on All My Children. Now decades later, things have come full-circle for the good friends as they share screen-time on General Hospital as Valentin and Martin.

Stuart is a Daytime Emmy nominee this year for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category at the upcoming 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and we took a moment to congratulate him on being acknowledged by his peers for the second year in a row.  Currently, James is pulling double duty shooting his Disney+ show, Villains of Valley View, while also taping GH.

Watch the replay of the livestream with Michael E. Knight below.

Then let us know, are you enjoying Martin and Lucy together? What do you think of the idea of Cady McClain coming to GH? Do you want to see more Valentin and Martin scenes? And, what are your favorite memories of Michael’s time as Tad on All My Children? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
