GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Reveals She Had A Child With Faison, But Is It Henrik or Someone Else?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital confirmed a bombshell revelation that had been highly-suspected by fans of the series.  Last week, following Faison’s (Anders Hove) death, Anna (Finola Hughes) visited him at the hospital morgue.  Once alone with her nemesis, she takes a lock of his hair with a scalpel, pockets it, and reveals that she had his child!

In a moment later, that was actually all in Anna’s mind, Faison wakes up and grabs her and asks if the child is Henrik? As of now it’s left unanswered, However, all roads seems to lead to Henrick being the son of Anna and Faison.

But not so fast! In this week’s issue of Soap Opera Digest on Newsstands now, GH co-head writer, Shelly Altman previewed that Anna has become very curious to figure it out. Altman says on Anna’s plight: “She doesn’t know whether this son of Faison’s is the child she gave birth to, but the idea that these two people could be one and the same is alarming to her.”

As to what’s next, Altman teased: “We will find out the back-story, and how this all came to pass – and why Anna has reason to think that this history would never need to be known, and that she could move on, having had this child, without making it a part of her daily life.”

As viewers saw, Peter August (Wes Ramsey) revealed himself in key scenes with Faison to be the son who was treated like garbage by the nefarious criminal, and who now basically holds all the cards via the flash drive to Drew (Billy Miller) getting his memories back, or does he?

Watch the scene where Anna goes to the morgue to reveal her secret to a dead Faison after the jump.  Then let us know, will Anna turn out to be Henrik’s mother, or will there be a twist? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

So you mean to tell me that Wyatt is actually Patty Halliwell’s son who just happen to came out from the womb of what we all thought to be his mother, Piper, who actually turned out to be a sister who unknowingly carried the child of her mother, which also happens to be her brother?

Whoah boy.

*Hopefully anyone got the reference. hahaha

Rose McGowan is beyond irritating. Cause or no cause I just don’t like how she comes off. She managed to say, quite bluntly, that she didn’t like her Charmed co-star, Alyssa Milano and proceeded to discredit her. Who knows the truth behind any of these personal attacks but it just comes off so petty. Which brings me to another thing…I have been known to say (as I think most of us have) how much I “love” an actor whether on a soap or otherwise. I submit a retraction…I don’t know ANY of these actors or what their real selves are… Read more »

Rebecca1…I think we all “love” actors at one time or another. Probably based on the characters they play. But after wiki-ing a few of them I don’t do that much anymore because sometimes I can change my mind based on what wiki says. And if i don’t like it, I can never enjoy their performances again without their thinking about what their “real selves” are like. As for Rose, she does have her own style whether you like her or not. It can be a little much for me as well. But she has been a major force behind the… Read more »

Rebecca, what you say about loving actors is how I feel about hating actors. Of course, it’s not the actor I hate when I rant and rave about how much I hate (fill in blank) because I don’t know the actor who plays the character. I hate Sonny but he seems perfectly lovely in interviews. Most notably, he was charming and vulnerable when Oprah Winfrey interviewed him on her show. And sometimes I hate certain choices actors make (lip chewing, adolescent posturing in a fifty year old woman, mumbling, sighing, shrieking, grabbing one’s temple, etc). I have no idea who… Read more »

Hi Rose Yes, I know that McGowan is very strong in the “me too” movement. Still don’t like her. Whenever I’ve seen/heard her interviewed she comes off very harsh, cold. Of course if I actually KNEW her I might actually like her, but from the aforementioned I just don’t take to her. We may share certain viewpoints with public people but that doesn’t always translate into “big hug.” I don’t really get a sense of an actor from wikipedia; it’s usually just their resume/accomplishments, personal background. But in reading interviews, anywhere…here, magazines, etc. or seeing a taped interview I always… Read more »

Hey, Harry… I realize you don’t hate the actor because you hate the character. I think, if I remember correctly that you really have like Roger in the past but just aren’t a fan of Franco. I get it. Don’t agree as you know, but I get it. It’s definitely a tribute to an actor’s skill if we can love him/her on one show and not on another because we’re so lost in the character. It’s just interesting…our ability to suspend disbelief. I look at Tamara and I don’t see Carly; I see Kim. I look at Tyler on DOOL… Read more »

“Kayk…”Oh that it would have been possible for real working women to get the attention they deserve that MeToo and it’s offshoots are getting. And whether you support a particular cause or not, or the personalities promoting them, it does take their “star” power and or money to get the attention to battle the Weinsteins of the world, etc. And just because they have the money you say Rose and Uma have that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t “bitch.” They just live in a ifferent kind of world.

Hey Har…

Not sure if they’re fliriting…if they are it’s two ways from what I see. But, rather, I think they’re allowing these characters to FINALLY befriend someone other than the small circles they inhabit. It makes perfect sense for Finn and Alexis to become friends as they bond over addiction and get to swap stories at the meetings. I think it’s nice… And, both like to speak in ironies and wit so I think they play well off each other. I like their friendship!

Shay, correct me if I am over reaching here, but I think you might not care for the character Alexis Davis? I am pretty adept at picking up on subtle cues. I once loved Alexis. Loved her when she first appeared in Port Charles and had to use a paper back to breathe in and out of it for her anxiety attacks. She was quirky, funny, stuffy, frazzled–like a female Frazier Krane. But watching her fall for one bad boy after another while acting like a virgin for the very first time became redundant, tiresome even. The first time she… Read more »

@Harry…You are most gifted in the art of perception! Why, yes, Alexis definitely ranks as one of my all-time least favorite GH characters, and her placement has shot ever more progressively toward the top of that list with each passing day. (Along with Nina….) Quite frankly, I was never taken with this woman and her snooty sense of condescending moral superiority, but in recent years she has become utterly unbearable, especially given her own immense personal failings. I used to simply ignore her or ff through her scenes, however, as she’s become ever more inexplicably omnipresent on the GH canvas,… Read more »

Faison is dead and it shows just how awful these writers are. Instead of writing an ongoing story for Jason and Drew with Faison as the villain who still has a goal to achieve with the two of them, he is brought back, not even lured back by Jason, but for something totally unrelated, Nathan, and he’s dead in a couple of episodes. Instead of using the great villainous Faison and providing some real intrigue for Jason, Drew and others he’s gone. Now I’m sure Van Etten and Altman think they’ve done something brilliant here, using Faison’s brief return and… Read more »

Very well written! I tuned out after they let Genie Francis go, but this is preposterous! It’s another re-write of history! I remember when Finola first appeared on GH and have followed her stories. There is NO way that Anna Devane would allow Faison to touch her and now she’s suddenly had his child??? i know there were visa issues with the guy who plays Faison so he could not be in the US long term, but they could have done block taping. It would have been more interesting to make Finn his son and not another newbie. Anyone BUT… Read more »

This was after his brain was removed. No shaved head. No scars or stitches on his head. Stitches all over his chest though from the surgery.

The stitches on his chest were the autopsy cut to remove the organs..
They are exactly how they look..

The dead guy in the morgue is a creation of Faison a double that replaced him, yup .. The double was shot operated on as Faision was and put in Faison’s place in the morgue. Faision has ‘people’ taking care of these things. The writers would never commit the sin of killing Faison or Helena, never happen. If they actually killed either off—… Read more »

And for STUPID.. The lock of hair is problematic: the hair locks were cut and don’t have the roots, so have little if any nuclear DNA. That’s the kind you’d need for much of the relationship testing. Dumb Anna needed to pull his hair to get the root, not cut it.. And– She/Anna said- ”CHILD” not son. Faison asked if Hendrick in Annas in her crazy head.. Anna is jackedup crazy.. She needs to be commotes, she needs help.. The only reason Anna had such hate and fear of Faison was – he would discover her secret that Robin is… Read more »

Oh, my gosh, su!!!!!!…you are on to something…Robin is Faison’s?
My grandmother said something about Anna ( when she appeared on AMC) giving her daughter to someone named Filomena? ….that Robin did not ‘meet’ her mother until she was 6, 7, or 8?
My Gran only watched GH spiradically, due to the ‘sharing’ of characters….she would follow them from AMC to GH, LOL.

hey Celia.
The writers are timid, they would never be excitingly brave enough to have Robin as Faison’s and her CHILD.
RC would go there he is a brave writer, but not Shelly and Chris they are in fear of fans ((a reason GH is so blah in comparison to its glory days)

And– Faison is not dead.. it was a clone/double in the morgue. yuppers!

Celia, as I recall Filomena was the caretaking woman of Robin when they and Anna first appeared on GH. Robin grew up those first 8 years knowing Anna as “Love” until learning Anna was actually her mother on the show.

Faison is really dead. You can take my word for that. He’s escaped Hell before, but this time we put a little extra security on him. And of course it would be more difficult for him to run around up there without a brain.

The timeline and how Anna came to have Faison’s child is of upmost important to us loyal Anna fans and GH viewers who have kept tuning in to watch her story on screen since her conception. We will not accept a child born before Robin, it was clear and forever captured on film that Robert was the first man Anna slept with. So hope GH has done their homework on this matter.

Tina… I completely agree with you on Anna and Finn; have loved their coupling from the start for just the reasons you gave. I wasn’t a Finn/Hayden fan and if they do bring her back at some point with Finn’s child I’m hoping it doesn’t come between Anna and Finn if they finally get real.

I disagree though about Anna’s history. i’m curious to see if Peter/Heinrich is hers with Faison and how they weave the story. If they can add without detracting I’m all for it.

Hey Rebecca! We agree once again. I was not a huge fan of Hayden’s either.
I didn’t hate her, I was merely apathetic about her.
I do detest this Faison story as I am tired of new writers trying to erode the steadfast strength and stoicism of the great Anna Devane in order to prop up the newbies who still have not found their footing.
Finala Hughes will rise above it as she always does but I am tired of watching her act apologetic to folks who owe HER a huge apology.

As for Anna, I’m in the “wait and see” category as to where they’re taking this story. So far, I’m enjoying it. There’s absolutely no way Anna can be exactly as she was when Scorpio, Frisco, Sean Donnelly, Holly, “Casey the Alien” ;), Tiffany, etc were around. Those days are gone. Now, Anna is older, has a chronic illness and is no longer an international/traveling spy! I accept that…sadly…but, ya know, we can… Read more »

Alan, I agree with a lot of your points in your post. This is another futile attempt at a history rewrite (Anna/Faison). The PCPD and their guards are inept in most scenes. The mob solves most of the crimes in Port Charles and takes down most of the criminals. Carly also spent time in a sanitarium, I believe, and you are right about her “saint” of a son and husband. “Parking Lot Pete” (Wes Ramsey) remains flat to me.

Love your post, Alan. I especially love the part about Lulu going all Jughead on us when narrating the Faison story. I’d love to see Lulu start wearing a crown knit cap.
How did Lulu, with no college education and no news reporting experience, suddenly become a seasoned investigative journalist?
Did Lulu see The Post at the Port Charles Theater over and over and thought that qualified as experience and education?

Any viewer that knows Anna’s history knows she didn’t have sex with that monster. She’s been brainwashed into believing she did. If she had a child post-tanker explosion ’92, it was Robert’s .

Given that Faison is/was(?) an expert in hypnosis, he could have had his way with Anna and impregnated her years ago wiithout her even initially realizing it…….she could have found out her child and its origins much later either through WSB records or repressed memory therapy. I’m not saying I would necessarily wish this to be the case, but there are enough spaces of time in Anna’s backstory to allow for such a scenario.

@CeeCee….There are so many holes in this scenario, that we could debate them until the cows come home, but yes, if Peter, Peter Parking Meter were truly Anna’s offspring, I should think that Cesar would have named him “Crown Prince of Faison”….and treated him accordingly. So there is one mystery yet to be addressed.

Finola being a boss in acting doesn’t mean it’s enough. The story needs to be good too and acceptable to most long term Classic fans.

I don’t suspect Heinrich is Anna’s son, he’s a snake in the grass…deceptive,
manipulative, he’s played everyone like a chess piece w/ little or no regard
to human life,,,definitely his fathers son. Anna would have shielded her
child from Faison’s evil clutches at any cost, including not raising that child
herself for his or her protection much like Liesl tried to do with Nathan.

I don’t think Peter/Henrich is a “snake-in-the-grass”, Fanny. I actually think he’s a good guy (as well as extremely intelligent, sophisticated) who, like Anna, hated Faison. I don’t think he intended to hurt anyone other than Faison…

I’m hoping he stays with the show. I’ve vacillated on who I think he “romances” but I’ve gone through Lulu, now Maxi (the family he longs for) and now I’m thinking Kiki! (But then I think they’re going to have a Kiki/Griffin/Ava web so that might be out.

Anyway, there’s something about Wes and his delivery that’s very smooth…can’t explain it but I like it.

when anna said she had a child w/ faison, it made me sick to my stomach, it took a while for me to process this, was she raped? the back story on this is going to be interesting , lets see what the shows comes up with. it made me think of Laura who had nikolas w/ that psycho starvos, and we all love nikolas, but still i sure hope its not peter August, for some reason i’m not into the character. hope its someone else.

Before I post on the absurdity of a Devane/Faison offspring, let’s take a look at this overused storyline. The Never Before Mentioned Child Syndrome has been used with various degrees of believability on GH through the years:

Monica/Dawn
Laura/Nikolas
Bobbie/Carly
Alexis/Sam
Holly/Ethan
Connie/Trey
Heather/Franco

I might be forgetting some. Dawn was a dud. Nik and Sam probably made the most sense time period wise. Bobbie and Holly were supposedly devastated that they could never have children. Connie created another personality to forget Trey. Fitting Franco in the Heather/Scott timeline was just another forced way for the audience to accept Franco.

Hi, T, I don’t dislike Franco…I simply do not understand him. Perhaps Kevin ( if he is Kevin) will shine a light on his brain? LOL…Will Kevin turn out to be a psychopath, as a few suspect? Everything seems to be sooo convoluted, all around….Peter, Faison, Anna, Andrew, Jason….this brain ” switch” is so out of the realm of reality that we either go along with it, or bust…aha!! It’s extraterrestrial…..or Frankenstein-esque… As we both questioned…. how could Sam not ‘know’ her newfound husband did not have the same body-parts as Jason? You even equated the ‘situation’ with fake-Jack and… Read more »

What bothers me is that Franco is a terrible character and always had been, just like Nina, and yet the writers see more value in keeping Roger Howarth and Michelle Stafford around than Genie Francis. That to me is ludicrous because of how important Laura is to the canvas.

Shay

Amen, Jimmy…..It really does beggar belief that we’ve suffered through year upon year of Franco and Nina with nothing of any positive value to show for their prolonged presence on the GH canvas, whilst Laura, Robert and a slew of other legacy players we’ve been clamoring to see back in Port Charles on a permanent basis remain—at best—-infrequently recurring characters in a town they helped put on the proverbial soap opera map. “Ludicrous” doesn’t even begin to adequately describe that situation!

It’s a reasonable assumption that a man could never know he fathered a child. For a woman to know about a child and never mention that child in 20-40 years is ridiculous.

Steve

I’m going to give it a week or two to see how it pans out, but I can’t imagine Anna ever carrying a child of her sworn enemy, let alone have relations with him. Are they saying the child is older than Robin (as the dude from the parking lot is)? Or, did this happen after Robert, her and Faison were assumed to be dead in the early 90’s?

Regardless, this is a horrible rewrite of a beloved character that combined with the treatment of Genie Francis has me close to removing GH from my DVR.

I am hoping Peter August is not her child. If Anna had a child with Faison, I hope it is someone else and that would be another great story. It would be interesting to see how Peter would react to that!

How about Drew’s old girlfriend who is the mother of his child…forgot her name.

Jimmy

Her name is Kim. That would be a great twist because it would tie Kim and Oscar to more core characters, and there is a resemblance between Kim and Anna. Plus, I’m not sure if it’s just me, but it seems like there is a side to Kim that she is hiding. Potentially a repressed crazy side or something she is ashamed of, which could be her lineage.

Tamara Braun (Kim) is only about eleven years younger than Finola Hughes. I can see child/parent relationships if the actors look years apart even if they’re close in age in reality. For example, although Kelly Monaco is only about 8 years younger than William DeVry, to my eye she looks young enough to be his daughter. Tamara doesn’t look that much younger, to me…than Finola. I guess it’s subjective but Kim being Anna’s daughter would be a stretch for me. Personally, I like Peter/Heinrich and though he, too, is close in age to Anna I think he has a baby… Read more »

oops! correction…one that makes more sense to me now. Wes Ramsey (Peter/Henric) is only 40 in real life thus 18 years younger than Finola…which explains why he looked younger to me than Finola!

Not interested in this story. It’s as stupid as the fake mask storyline-brain swapping/mapping, memories saved on a flash drive. Send “Parking Lot Pete” back to the parking lot and write a story that actually has depth and romance. The writers are capable of this, they gave Nathan a beautifully (albeit devastating) written send-off.

Am over GH right now. The never-before-known/never-mentioned-it-child trope is as overused as preposterous resurrections. Daytime dramas do stretch credulity but I find it weak that so many new characters coming to Genoa city are forgotten children. Sigh. This on top of the reprehensible behavior and violence that no one seems to make amends for. I like complex characters that cross the line between good and evil as much as the rest of us, but…

I really dislike this story idea. I’m sure it may make for some interesting scenes, but on the whole, I think it detracts from the moral core of Anna. It’s a contrivance. I really don’t need to see another lost-child-I never-knew story on another soap. It’s tired and so predictable.

GH has such wonderful talent (and I really like most of what this writing team is giving us) . Just not a fan of this twist.

We never saw Faison actually die. It happened off screen at the end of an episode, caused by going into cardiac arrest when he was talking with Peter. So how are we supposed to know for sure that he actually died, and wasn’t replaced by someone else? My theory with the lack of scars on his head is that the man who died isn’t Faison at all – it’s someone that Faison (or possibly a very much alive Helena) hired to impersonate him, and is wearing a mask to look like Faison. Helena or Faison could have also hired the… Read more »

Well if they don’t want to pay Anders Hove’s salary anymore then possibly they think they can replace him with this Peter/Henrik dude. That’s sort of FV’s territory and he doesn’t have a good record on bringing our faves back, especially lately with Genie.

Sigh…I’m enjoying the stories…the lot of them…and going along for the ride. Longtime viewer/fan, but I find the twists and turns fun. To stick to history as many want/remember would mean the show might as well go into reruns.

There’s nothing wrong with adding to history. So…if you don’t remember something happened or you remember something a certain way…many times they’re ADDING history that we’re just finding out about now. IF Anna had a child with Faison, it’s not changing history…it’s adding to what they never told us before. Works for me!

No, Faison is not dead. This supposes individual who is alleged to be the son of both Anna and Faison is not so. There will be a chain of events that will take place there is definitely another individual who will turn out to be the son of Anna and Faison, Stay tuned!

I don’t watch much, but Anna having a son with Faison kills GH. Anna had an affair with Faison years ago, but now a son, The real joke would be Faison hated the child of the women he desired for years ? I like Finn with Anna, which is something because I am Scorpio all the way. Maybe its just I dislike so many of the characters, maybe this couple is a last chance for me. Laura screwed again,.

@janet……..That sums it up quite succinctly! Just when I thought this soap was finally getting its act together after years of having lost its heart and soul, we’re back to the same convoluted mob-centric mess that GH was before the re-emphasis upon legacy characters that initially seemed to be happening with Steve Burton’s return. Now that the situation has suddenly done a U-turn with Laura’s abrupt departure and more of the same old, same old forcefeeding of long-failed characters and more unappealing newbies, I’m once again fed-up with this show….especially due to the utter contempt I harbor for the current… Read more »

Maybe Anna’s secret child is Damian Spinelli? Here’s the soap opera logic: (1) If it’s someone previously known to her, then that leaves it open to a lot of what if’s such as what might Anna have been able to do to influence Damian NOT to have ever worked for Sonny? (2) Spinelli is intelligent as is Anna, and as was Faison. (3) Spinelli like Anna walks the line between law abiding and breaking the law. Sometimes he is more one and sometimes more the other. (4) He is close in age to Robin and both were raised in part… Read more »

I like your theory, however Anna Devane, super spy, would never willingly carry a child of Cesar Faison. If Spinelli were the long-lost child of Anna and Robert, that would be hilarious— and make him Mac’s nephew.

Hoo boy. What happened to this show? Just a month ago I wrote in praise of Chris Van Etten and the stories he and his team were presenting… and now we find out that Anna has a love child with Faison? Nathan is dead? Sonny’s boring dad is back? and yeah, I am sure that Kevin is really Ryan (there’s no other reason for it to come up so many times in the past couple weeks other than to remind old viewers and introduce new viewers to a character that we thought had died in the mid 90s).. and so… Read more »

I’ve been watching GH since I was a little boy, back in the 1960’s with my Mom. Ok, I still love GH, but YOU have to come out with it, Please please let Anna know that Henrik is actually the Boy that She delivered and not a girl. Also, how is it that Valentin is so young that he was actually there when Anna gave birth about 30 years ago, only in Soap Opera Land is this possible. Also, please get Maxie and Lulu back to being Friends, because Lulu seems to help hold Maxie together. I think, Peter aka… Read more »

Hi Mark,

I, too, would love for Anna to find out that Henrik/Peter is her son. I’m sure she will…when is the question. And, why is Valentin lying to her…did he raise Peter? Faison rejected him so perhaps Valentin was keeping tabs on him…since he was in love with Anna.

And, Valentin is not that much younger than Anna. I’m not sure how old either is supposed to be in the show but in real life James Patrick Stewart (Valentin) is almost 50. And they were peers back in the WSB days so it works…

Actually, I hope that Drew discovers who he really is and that somehow he remembers Franco and how they were friends when they were little. I know somehow Kim and Julian belong together and please put Finn back with Anna, they were so good together, or bring back Hayden with Finn’s baby.

Anna is Kim’s mother. Faison’s son and the Traitor are NOT the same person. Yeah, Peter August is Faison’s son and Nathan is also his son, but that’s simply an aside. Valentin said Anna had a daughter and the plot never said the Traitor was a male. Drew disappeared from the Navy Seals in San Diego around the same time Jason was ‘killed”. Coincidentally right after he met Dr. Kim Nero. Peter August and Kim Nero showed up in PC at about the same time – around the time when Jason was escaping and then finally free from the clinic… Read more »

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
