GENERAL HOSPITAL: Emotional Friends & Loved Ones Speak At Sabrina's Funeral Service!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital saw friends and loved ones of murdered nurse Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo) share their memories about her life and times at the funeral service led by Doctor/Preist Griffin Munro (Matt Cohen).

When Griffin asks if anyone has some kind words to share about Sabrina, it is none other than Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) who is the first speak to those gathered.  Lucy reminds everyone that it was Sabrina’s tenacity that resurrected the Nurses’ Ball, along with Sabrina’s best friend, Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel).  Then, Felix is next to speak to tell everyone about Sabrina, but he is afraid to do so because it will have to come to an end, because her life was cut short. He is in tears.  An injured Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) also pulls herself together to show up at the service to say goodbye to her friend.  Liz told Franco (Roger Howarth) earlier, that she has lossed all her good friends: Emily, Nikolas and now Sabrina, and she feels alone. When Liz speaks in the church she says she will try to live by the lessons Sabrina taught her.

Next, it’s a devastated Michael’s (Chad Duell) turn to speak.  He is overcome when speaking of how Sabrina got him through a rough time and helped him care for baby Avery.   When Michael struggles to continue, his mother Carly (Laura Wright) gets up and tells the attendees how Sabrina encourared her son to make peace with the Corinthos family (When Michael he was so bitter after A.J.’s murder).  Michael says he is so grateful to have loved Sabrina.

But it was Epiphany as played by Sonya Eddy, who not only grieved and shed tears for the loss of her friend, Sabrina, but sang, “You’re Not Alone” the signature song from the Nurses’ Ball as the proper send-off for Sabrina.  As everyone in the church pews looked on, it was shocking when Tracy (Jane Elliot) grabbed Sabrina’s murderer, Paul Horsnby’s (Richard Burgi) hand during Epiphany’s rendition.  Horsnby looks stunned.

After the funeral service is over, Tracy thanks Griffin for presiding over it, and sees that Paul is still inside looking at Sabrina’s picture.  He relives the moment he killed her and says he is ‘sorry’ and apologizes to her!  When Tracy walks in and says, “What are you sorry for?”  Paul blurts out, “I killed her!”  And the episode fades to black!

So, were you touched by Sabrina’s funeral service?  If so, which one of the mourners that spoke or sang delivered your favorite moment?   And what about Paul blurting out that he killed Sabrina?   Will he do some fancy doubletalk when Tracy confronts him about what he just said?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Monica should smell Paul’s cologne and know he is the killer…Monica is able to text this to Tracy as Paul confronts her…realizing the police know, a frantic and desperate Paul kidnaps Monica and hides out at the closed General Hospital for several days,,,Paul ties up Monica in her office as she begs him to let her go…Paul attempts to kill Monica who has fainted but the ghost of Alan Quartermain appears frightening Paul who flees…Monica awakens and sees Alan’s ghost realizing he protected her… Monica uses her cell phone to contact police telling them she is trapped in the hospital… Read more »

Lucas is too ashamed of having a father such as Julian, to show up. And, of course, Brad supports his husband.
What really sets me a-kilter is how The halo-wearing Sonny condemns Julian and THE KILLER as murderers. Wow!!!!
As evidenced by Julian, today….he and his ‘mob-squad’ roosters prey on those weaker than they. Well, Julian has found his perfect adversary in one female: Nina. Don’t mess with Red— er, Nina.

It was an emotional episode. I thought Carly getting up to say something was a little bizarre considering how she had downplayed Sabrina’s character to MIchael. I thought she was just going to stand by MIchael for emotional support.

“Lossed”?

Sabrina should not have been taken off the canvas this way. I never liked how she came out of nowhere and was put on frontburner as a Carlivati pet, followed by uninspired Ugly Betty Blossoms into beauty. However, the actress Theresa Castillo could actually act, and made the role work, and I came to love her friendship with Felix, Epiphany, and everyone at the hospital, and she and Carlos were great onscreen. When they weren’t trying to force her into romances with Patrick or Michael she really shined in her friendships, with Tracy, Liz, the whole hospital. She was one… Read more »

I guess this means that when the Nurse’s Ball returns her face will be right next to Robin’s, and I can see why long time fans would be upset by that, but if you get murdered at a hospital you work at you deserve to be immortalized forever in the halls of those hospitals and all of their functions. I hope they show more of Lucy, Felix, and Epiphany. They are the ones that deserve the airtime, NOT Finn and Haytchel, who is this writer’s Sabrina.

You have to know that on Monday’s episode Tracy will ask Paul what he means and he’ll snap out of it and say something to the effect of he didn’t stop the killer in time. The funeral was lovely, but IMHO, it just never should have come to this. When I think back over the character of Sabrina’s time on the show, I can’t help but wonder how absolutely brutal this has been for some poor soul who has been facing a lot of hard times like she did. Sabrina started as the “ugly duckling turned into a swan” storyline,… Read more »

That’s exactly what I thought when Paul “confessed” to the murder. He will cower and back-up with an excuse; exactly as you suggest, Rodd.
Yes, the service was beautiful. I cried because whoever cried, such as Epiphany and Felix, ….well, those were real tears…I am assuming they felt ‘sorry’ to see Teresa go. Good show!! Too sad not to see Sabrina’s sunny smile again.

Oh, you will see Sabrina’s sunny smile…her portrait at the memorial service will be hung on that GH wall right next to Steve Hardy…anyone in a gloomy mood passing by the portrait will feel that beautiful smile shine upon them-they will suddenly feel all warmness and good…they will all go all Julie Andrews on us dancing and sing, ‘The Halls of GH are alive with Sabs beautiful smile!’-lol

No. not one bit. Shows have to stop killing characters just to get rid of them. Sabrina could have easily received word she’d family needs her or been approached to take a job out of town OR even just walked into her kitchen never to be seen agin until 2 or 3 years or more when they could bring her back.

The hospital killer story is stupid and without merit.

While not a huge fan of the character, I thought it was quite odd the only “flashback” was of the murder scene. I know they did the touching Felix flashback the other day, but since they were paying TeCa by using the murder scene, why not throw in a flashback or two?

Time will tell if the writers place Sabrina with the rarely mentioned dead (AJ) or those mentioned numerously (Connie).

Harry
Guest

Sabrina was on GH for two New York minutes and they dedicate almost the entire show to her funeral? Moreover, she barely was on since the Disney on Ice fairy tale wedding crashed and burned. AJ was legacy character, we watched him grow up and he’s given no service?
Everything about Sappy has been handled badly and that includes her funeral. She was an unimportant character and I will not miss her even a little bit.

@Harry…..Thank you for not mincing words! I blessedly skipped the official Sabs Sobfest, but it sounded every bit as puke-inducing as I would have expected from this production team. As you so correctly pointed out, the showrunners couldn’t even wait for legacy character AJ’s body to cool before they excitedly stashed him—with as little fanfare as possible—in the Q crypt so Ava and Sonny could lewdly desecrate his final resting place, yet, all the stops were pulled out for this nobody from nowhere who was nothing special. The only fitting aspect to this entire St. Sabs scenario was that her… Read more »

I missed the beginning of the service so I thought the priest in vestments sitting there in the corner not saying a word was a bit odd since Griffin was running the service– also the purple sash is for Lent and Advent– not for funerals, you would think there would be one Catholic on the show that would point out that error. I give them credit for at least having it done in a church set– most soap memorial services are either outside or in some bar/restaurant —- — and that is why they killed Sabrina– you cannot have a… Read more »

That is so true about happy soap characters…i remember on AW when Jim and Mary Mathews, the show’s patriarch and matriarch going to St. Croix or wherever and saying something like how much they love each other and the next scene Mary died from heart failure if i recall…of course the actress was fired so they killed her off!!!

Well said, Mary. I thought the speeches were en pointe, as I said above. I was so moved….maybe because I loved Sabrina/Teresa., and am disappointed to see her go. Again GH, as a whole, takes too many liberties. If this was supposed to have been a Catholic service; it would have been a High Mass in full ‘priestly’ regalia…….not sitting in the sidelines like an altar boy…….absolutely sacrilegious, and offensive. The Funebral Mass is a MUST in the RC faith. I know I keep overstating this fact, but I am passionate about my faith, and will not apologize. They should… Read more »

Lighten up, folks. There are far worse things going on with the writing and plots of this legendary program than Sabrina meeting an untimely demise. Though she was by far not the most irritating character on GH…fill in the blanks with whoever you feel this is, but Kiki out distances them all in my estimation…these particular writers are committing heinous acts on a near daily basis with their particular version of storytelling. These two really need to go. ABC: shred those new contracts and find some writers that know how to actually write. GH and its loyal audience deserve better!

Marc Anthony Samuel has really delivered in the aftermath of Sabrina’s murder. Poor Felix – he has an off-camera relationship, he’s been back-burnered forever and his sister evaporated into thin air.

The writing lately has been so perfunctory it’s as if it’s only done to give the best cast in daytime something to do while they appear on screen. Individual scenes can be great but the overall stories are lackluster. Long live GH!

J&S near destroyed Y&R.. Y&R fell to its’ lowest ratings, a viewer loss as never before. They are horrible writers. (the over a year Music Box story) Most of what they write makes no sense.. The serial killer story makes little sense, has no intruge, no twists and turns, not one intense moment, absolutely void of climatic drama. Their couples are terrible. NO romance, no nothing. The couples are empty. J&S are without a doubt the worst soap writers, ever. They are totally wrong for GH .. GH is being destroyed. If, they were to be fired there is not… Read more »

Thanks Cee. I think Tyler thought he was irreplaceable and they said otherwise. Nick Stabile was great and I’m sure he works cheaper. Having said that, I wanted Tyler back. He worked at ABC for almost twenty years, he deserved a pay raise and a nice new lengthy contract. And we dont know any of the details. What if Rebecca Budig who has been on the show for two years and a FOF’s [Friend of Franks!] is making more? If I were Tyler I would pound my fist on the desk and say NO!

Elizabeth

Nick Stabile may have been great but he wasn’t Nikolas Cassadine, any more than Jacob Young was ever Lucky Spencer. It’s fairly apparent that FV was planning on trimming the contract budget by getting rid of William DeVry (Julian) …. then when the show lost 100,000 viewers in the demo in one week by having destroyed Julexis, the writers turned around on a dime and decided to make Paul the hospital killer so they could write off Richard Burghi. But then, when the unversal response was “WTF, why get rid of one of the better actors on the show?” FV… Read more »

Surprise! Not. There should have been a funeral for Jason/SBu and Nik/TC with full montage of their 20 plus year history. Don’t get me started on the crap that was done for AJ’s funeral where Sonny and Ava had sex on his grave. The blatant disrespect for veteran GH characters has been appalling under this current regime.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Missy, thats ONE of my points to “Sonny Haters” I bring up. Sonny is not a good guy BUT neither is AVA! What they did to AJ’s grave was despicable! I dont know how Monica can even begin to stomach Sonny! He has reeked havoc on her family for years! And this version of Jason, it started out okay but it just lost its momentum very quickly. Billy Miller’s Jason should have been back as a Q. He and Monica actually are kind of sweet together in what very little scenes they share.

FV’s bloated cast means we can’t see too much of GH characters that were around years before he came on the show. Felix and Taylor could have been Piph’s nephew and niece that come to town to stay with the older woman after their mother dies or how about any number of health related issues that could plague the woman?

I, too, am so tired of that stupid song that Sabrina sang on this show. Ugh!

Ava is the personification of Saccubus, I know; but, man-oh-man—-those two set ‘the set’ ( again, pardon the pun; just happens, inadvertently) on ‘fiyah’!!!!

I empathize any soap writer for certainly by reading comments it is impossible to make fans happy. People are constantly saying the cast is too bloated and get rid of people and focus on the core cast members. So they get rid of a character whose actor’s contract is up and has only been on the show 4 years and not even related to any core family and nothing but complaints. I liked Sabrina and the actress, but her time was up.

Comment after comment on here for months, years in some cases, about how bloated the GH cast is, they kill off a character that never caught on in my opinion, and very few people will miss, and now people are complaining about that.

I agree with you 100%. I think if GH is looking to trim its cast, Sabrina (and Joe, for that matter) would have been on the list of characters to get rid of. I think the problem that most viewers have is how they handled her exit. Not only was her murder brutal, but she didn’t have to be killed at all. Many fans wanted Sabrina to run away with Carlos back when he was still alive. But instead, they brought her back seemingly just to kill her off.

I think they know they messed up when they killed Sabrina. Especially with all of the fan backlash they are receiving because of it. The unnecessary 3 days it took to kill her-ridiculous! She could have been reduced to a recurring character. I don’t know what Amy and Felix are but they could have gotten rid of them instead of TeCa. What was the point of bringing her back just to kill her?!?! I think they know they messed up because they’re trying to give her a big send off to appease the fans, but it was just a mistake.… Read more »

I agree, Letemeatc8ke.
Perhaps, ‘Joe” was brought in specifically to take Teddy away. A baby, at his point, would have been too much of an incumbrance. More important storylines need to be wrapped up, or explored.
I doubt any of us was expectantly waiting for a ridiculous custody court-battle.
So, in a fashion; there was a bit of order in the game-plan.
However, the question as to why was Sabrina brought back just to kill her???? Is this story not over? Will teddy come back in a few months as a teen? LOL.

Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo) was a great character that was played with emotion by a fine actress. She reminded me so much of the Nola character from GL days – hoping for a brighter future with a nice guy. Shame on GH for letting her go so violently. Who cares whether she had any relatives on the canvas? Sometimes it is just nice to have good friends at work. GH could use a lot more of that! The former scenes of Sabrina showed just why she was fun and was someone to root for. Instead, we are left with a… Read more »

This could easily be repaired if they wanted too. Sabrina’s body whisked away quick. Joe takes baby away very fast and with a smile which was odd. Like I mentioned before, this could be a storyline of the decade. Joe is really Carlos. They switched lives when Sabrina was being held in Puerto Rico. But Sonny and Michael saved her first. Carlos in the meantime is working on his revenge against Carlos and Sonny. He’s the one that found Sabrina first and injected her with a serum to lower heart rate to appear she was dead. Sabrina is hiding out… Read more »

As I’ve posted before, I’m probably in the minority here, but Sabrina’s death wasn’t much of a loss for me. Sure, she was a good character and Teresa Castillo is a good actress, but I would have much rather seen Sabrina die as opposed to Elizabeth or Monica. She’s not a core character, and her absence for the past few months (due to TC’s paternity leave), was barely noticeable, because she didn’t bring much to the show. However, the way they handled her exit was appalling. First of all, it was clear that Joe still had feelings for her, yet… Read more »

Sabrina’s exit is OK with me as well. If the sparsely attended funeral was any indication, it’s pretty clear that Sabrina’s potential was limited over the past 2 years to the Quartermaines & the hospital because of her frequent absences. If they’d wanted to really develop the character, they could have with creative costuming & good writing. Look at how much Tony Geary’s frequent absences impacted the writing for his character of Luke Spencer – NEVER! The guy racked up multiple Emmies for his powerhouse storylines, and was gone 2 months of every year IIRC. Also, look at how much… Read more »

Elizabeth hasn’t had family or friends for years now. Her sister Sarah hasn’t been on for decades, Nic is gone (temporarily), Gran (Audrey) is gone, Steven Weber is gone, Emily is gone, Jason dumped her…so…Franco’s been an anchor. In “real life” there are people who marry after a few months and stand the test of time…and others who are together for years before even getting engaged, decide to marry…and divorce. So, I find his feelings and sensitivity toward her credible. As for the scarcity of the funeral, I thought it was rather packed for today’s GH budget. More so than… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity.
