GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena Spews The Cassadine Curse On Sam!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Rot-ro! Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) is in big trouble now, thanks to her egging on the treachery of a “dying” Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) on Friday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital. 

You got to love the performances of Constance Towers, who makes Helena the most delicious, vile, evil, woman on the soaps! As the story continued: Sam, Liz (Rebecca Herbst), Jason (Billy Miller) and Nikolas  (Tyler Christopher) are all on Cassadine Island at Helena’s bedside, and Helena is propped up with oxygen tubes coming out of her nose, and the stage is set for some vintage and creepy Helena!

As Jason tries to get answers from what happened from the night he was shot and left to die in the waters of the pier, to Helena’s henchmen sifting him out of and saving his life, we ultimately don’t learn that much from the Cassadine matriach.  But what did you expect, a full confession?

But while Helena has a mild distaste for her visitor Elizabeth, she has major one for Sam, particularily after Sam mouthed off to Queen B. Cassadine.  Sam was so fed up with Helena’s games, she went on a tirade and blurted out to her:  “She has no idea what it’s like to have a family.  Everyone who was ever around you was desperate to get away from you.   Isn’t that right?  You delight in causing misery, because you’re jealous.  Nobody ever loved you.  That’s why Mikos went off with my grandmother, because he couldn’t wait to get away from you.  You think there is this happy reunion in this afterlife.  You are wrong.  You are going to burn in hell. and I will gladly dance on your grave.”

Helena though was ready for a rebuttal, and she slapped the Cassadine curse on Sam. In fact,  it’s the same one  she threw on to Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura (Genie Francis) decades ago!  The exchange started with Helena responding to Sam’s word by saying:  “Brava! Brava! That is so dramatic.  Allow me to return the favor, but you won’t be happy.”   Sam says: “Oh yeah, well try and stop me.”  Helena then lays the smackdown on Sam with:  “I curse you Samantha Morgan. You, those who begot you, and those you begat, and all those who touch you.  You and yours will never know happiness in this life, nor any other!”

Looks Like Elizabeth may come up out of this visit with Helena pretty much unscathed, and Sam’s life will be forever changed! Is Sam’s entire life about to  implode?  Will Helena reveal if she can reverse any mind control she had or has on Jason to help him get back his memory?  Did you enjoy Sam getting the curse, or were you upset by it?  Will Laura and Sam team up and break their life long Cassadine Curses?  Is Constance Towers as Helena, the all-time best recurring character on daytime? Were you disappointed that the episode did not move story along?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

It was ridiculous how much time was spent on Sam yesterday. Its tiresome that she’s front and center in all scenes.

It’s not tiresome at all. The silent majority love her character and can’t wait to see what happens.

She’s awesome, and she’s helped Elizabeth and the gorgeous Jason have more screen time. Win-win!

jimh(“and Jerry Mathers as…the Beaver”): I kind of like Sam, but simultaneously find her kind of boring and monotonous in her never-ending angst. Even when she is happy, she is depressed and depressing. She and Jason will be our curse, and the whole show will be devoured by their “great, and humorless, love” (multiple-brain-injury, low IQ Jason, and his sad-eyed, perpetually depressed consort). Oddly enough, Kelly Monaco comes to life in her scenes with Becky Herbst. So…let’s “ship” Liz and Sam as a couple…of somethings! These two ladies sparkle together!!!!!

At least Sam brings some relevance and history to the canvas as a near-legacy character….much more preferable to all the time and energy that is unwisely devoted to the likes of such newbies as Nina, Jordan, Val-Chops, Sappy, Hayden, Ava, nuKiki, and God only knows how many more nonsensical creatures that have been—and are yet to be—introduced and imposed upon Port Charles!!!!

I sometimes wonder at the people watching this show. Sam was a dynamic character that brought life to GH. The writers killed her in 2012. Elizabeth has always been a devious, hypocrite who has confessed to purposefully ruining relationships. Especially, JaSam and her own, multiple times. ***For those of you with amnesia, re-watch the tryst between her and Nicholas in 09. She confesses her true motives with Jason to alleviate Nicholas’s guilt after having slept with the so-called love of her life’s brother on the same night Lucky asks her to marry him for the umpteenth time and whilst her… Read more »

What a fabulous rant, Tia. I hope you feel better for having written it. I know I feel better for having read it.
I especially liked your take on Morgan’s bipolar story line. As I have said before, if you cannot approach it correctly and realistically, do not approach it at all.
I also think you’re right about Lizzy although I find myself forgiving her time and time again.

Helena Cassadine was spectacular in those scenes. I think Elizabeth will get some nastiness from the Queen Cassadine. She deserves all of the wrath of Helena considering all she has done to keep Jason in the dark about who he is. Nikolas will also not be spared completely. GH is swinging hard these last 2 weeks. So much to enjoy. Nina and Franco. Maxi and her attacks on Valerie and the magazine she will end up saving. Sonny and Epiphany kicking his sorry ass. Love her battling and putting Sonny in his place.

Mateo…you really summed it up for me, too. Worlds of difference since the Fluke fiasco. Would have been fun to see the off-camera between Kelly and Rebecca after their airplane scenes. They were probably cracking up. Loved Epiphany kicking Sonny to the curb. Hope they keep writing for her. Even liked her part in Liz’s shower and wedding. Am looking forward to Maxi help Nina turn Crimson around and throw a wrench into Julian’s plan in the process.

I never thought of the Laura/Sam teaming up. I am hoping this leads to a great story for Sam if Laura is thrown in there all the better. I loved the exchange between Helena/Sam, the only Sam was missing was the letter opener.

I absolutely loved these scenes. There is no-one more deserving of the curse than Sam, she has been a vile con artist & burden to this show for far too long. Constance Towers was phenomenal as always, I love her as Helena. Billy Miller & Rebecca Herbst have the most amazing facial expressions & chemistry in daytime. These scenes showcased the great talents these actors have & made for soapy goodness. I’m truly hoping the new writers keep up the incredible momentum they have going. It’s been years since I’ve been this invested in the entire show.

Lucy D.

totally agree. Sam thinks she’s above it all–she deserves it all–Patrick & Jason. Like she dared announce when Jason asked why they were there that Spinelli said you needed backup from the woman you love. As if Jason hadn’t told her to move on, he remembered nothing and he loves Elizabeth. I cursed Sam then and am glad Helena did one as well :). Constance Towers is the best villian in daytime. Because despite what Sam says she does have a soft spot for some–Nik for one–and she absolutely adores Spencer. I don’t think Laura would ever turn her back… Read more »

I agree. I follow the chemisty. UnJason BM and he should still be with Becky on screen. it’s not about ships. it’s about two actors playing well off one another and just seeming so natural. that’s Becky and Billy for me.

Tristan
Guest

It is amazing just how boring BM and KM are as “Jasam.” And even if they had chemistry, the whole concept of this “great love” — brain-damaged amoral dum-dum killer and sad sack amoral gal — is unappetizing to me. Kelly M. has more chemistry with Becky Herbst. Make of that what you will! Re: BM and BH? BH has a spark and seems awake. KM, not so much, thus BH makes Mr. Miller seem more exciting than he actually is at this point. Although the character of Jason is just awful. I stopped watching for 10 years specifically because… Read more »

Yes Tristan, you are absolutely right. There’s nothing interesting about Sam & Jason & there never has been. She blindly follows him, she thinks she’s independent and she’s not. She called Liz a damsel in distress, but how often hid Jason have to save her?

Good Lord, B.J. and others…everyone’s got a rap sheet on GH that makes them “deserving,” not just Sam. Including once sweet ? Liz…heroic killer? Jason… and as much as I “love to hate” Helena and can’t imagine GH without her, the dark queen herself has outdone them all.

Ash
Guest
Ash

I don’t diagree Rose. but Liz is the one that gets all the hate. when others, including hypocrites Sam and Carly have done far worse. I think that BJ’S point. Liz seems to be the one that “has to pay”. for what? for lying? ive me a break Sonny, Ava, Jerome all commited murder and are prancing around PC like they own the town.

And I’ll beleive Sam has learned from her mistakes when the while town knows that she did in the past instead Liz, Lucky and Jason kept it a secret.

How Liz is considered more nasty than any other character on GH is beyond me, but to each their own. II loved it, Hellz Bellz at her very best & the reactions from TC, BH & BM were spot on & hilarious. I personally think this will give Sam a much better storyline than she’s had in years cause we know what happens when one “aquires” the Cassidine curse. Even Liz had to endure it by just being with Lucky. Then again, Liz & Laura are the ONLY ones to ever foil the Evil Ones plans! That being said, I’m… Read more »

As for the reveal of the Jason story = LACKLUSTER!
There is no high drama, no suspense, no surprises, no intrigue, no twist & turns, no on the edge, no wow moment; the big reveal it bottomed out. C’mon!
No plot to speak of, no conspiring mystery, nada ..
not even a flare-up of impassioned excitement.
J&S never have and never will accomplish writing on the edge suspense..

((the past years 2014-15 Y&R= comatose. I wanted better for GH 🙁

Well, I thought it was pretty good!

hi Harry..

”’pretty good” <– lol yah nothing notable for this huge awaited reveal..

Laura having a curse as a legacy ehh..
A good many never seen the 1st curse play out so nothing there and it sounds like Sam never see the 1st curse play out, either lol (before her time too?
but– CT/Helena delivered the curse flawlessly awwwesome!

for the huge Jason reveal I felt no excitement and never an on the edge moment just everyday soap stuff..
Nobody is going ''ooooowww ahhhhhhhh!!'' over it……………lol

Su…you don’t necessarily specify a curse. That’s the spooky thing, even if you don’t believe in such things…they just hang over you…forever.

You seem to have a vendetta of your own about the GH writers from the beginning, just like some do or don’t like Sam, or Liz, or Sabrina, etc. I really don’t understand why you even watch soaps. In most cases they just don’t seem to be as gory or violent as you would like.

Suggestion…just finished watching the first season of ‘TwinPeaks.’ Think you would really like it.

Thanks for cursing Sam, Helena. Now the viewers will be tortured with endless scenes of Sam delivering that patented “I’m just trying to process things” line that she serves up for everything from cold coffee to a dead husband.

As for all-time best recurring character in daytime, Helena is really good but I’d have to give the title to ONE LIFE TO LIVE’s sexy cult leader Mitch Laurence.

Helena would have spilled all the truth tea, if Sam had shut her big mouth. I could not believe how Sam made that all about her. Jason is the one who lost 3 years of his life, Elizabeth is the one whose child was kidnapped for 4 years. Sam needed to take a seat and shut her mouth. the “Jason had me. I went into the water. I would have saved him” made me laugh out loud. does Sam think Jason can hold his breath for hours. lmao. I loved the curse. and what’s more I loved how nobody seemed… Read more »

Exactly. Sam just kept blabbing like this was about her. Here’s what we know though. Jason’s memory was intact when he left the clinic with Robin. He recoginized her and knew he was headed home. So it’s likely Helena cannot help him recover his memory at all–unless she subsequently wiped it out after the auto accident. And for those who think once he remembers he goes back to being a murderous thug–I seriously doubt it. For one, he’s likely to remember being Jason Q as well. And he won’t forget being Jake–who is disgusted by the actions of Jason Morgan.… Read more »

I couldn’t agree more Ash! Sam really tried to make it about her as per usual. She has become insufferable with her constant whining & me, me, me attitude. Jason & Elizabeth deserve answers about their son, and he should get answers pertaining to what happened to him.
It was very telling that Jason jumped to Liz’s defence when Helena merely spoke to her, yet said nothing when Sam was cursed. He has no feelings for Sam & is finally where his heart has always wanted to be with Elizabeth.

Sam’s a jealous child? Seriously? He’s her husband! The man she lo@ved more than herself, the man she mourned, the husband she prayed would come back to her. And now she discovers he’s right there…oh wow…amazing how differently people see things! To my mind she’s exercised incredible restraint…her love for Patrick and Emma..the conflict and guilt…against her undeniable love for, I repeat, her husband. Liz is the jealous insecure terror who kept Jason from his love, his wife, Sam.

I agree, Rebecca.
I kind of like Sam.
I have always loved Lizzy but think her actions are beyond the pale. She didn’t just lie by omission, she went out of her way to keep Jake’s true identity a secret.
She actually emotionally blackmailed sweet Laura who has always had Lizzy’s back. Moreover, she knows how it feels to lose a child so she should have run to Monica with the news that her only living child is in fact, alive.
Yes, sorry MIss Lizzy but I really want you to get your comeuppance.

Rose
Guest

I’ve always seen the chemistry between Jason and Sam. It’s just different than Liz. I like that the Sam character is more adventurous and confident. Liz is just to unsure and needy for my tastes. think it boils down to something you said earlier…”funny how people see things differently.” Some viewers love the Liz character, probably because of Rebecca. Others just don’t like Sam or Kelly’s acting style..I do, as well as Sabrina. Even Kiki and Valerie are starting to interest me…a little…because they are getting better writing.

I agree with you too Rose though I actually liked both Sabrina and Valerie from the start. Sabrina has always been sincere and a welcome departure from the many hardened, manipulative women on the show…and Valerie’s story was a nice way to shake up Lulu and Dante for a bit. I never saw Valerie as duplicitous or scheming…she was raised by and took care of the sweetest of moms…or so it was implied. I hope we’ll find out who her father is…that has been conspicuously left out. Sean perhaps???

Well, if Sam had shut up and not made it about her, the story might have been moved along some. But Fridays are cliffhanger days, right, so they “had” to leave us hanging. We did learn how Jason got out of the water–and survived until Robin supposedly revived him. We also know that Thanksgiving happens next week–so they leave Greece. I don’t thin Helena wiped out Jason’s memory (as I said–he recognized Robin when she woke him). So she can’t bring that back. I hope we do find out WHY she look little Jake.

Hi Ash…followup to our other comments. Don’t mix chemistry with what’s right. It’s not just Liz lying…it’s a HUGE, terrible lie when you withhold someone’s identity and past…not just to Jason, but his wife, mother, son and other’s who were close to him and have felt deep loss. And then go on as if things were normal and plan a wedding. This behaviour seems to have followed her since she’s been a teen, unfortunately…she’s told lies in the past, committed infidelities, and had her share of “comfort’, one-nighters. As for Sam, she’s no angel, but this isn’t new to her… Read more »

Honestly is this was SBu as Jason then I’d be fore Jasam. but BM and KeMo do not work for me. they have zero chemistry.. from the moment Jake Doe grabbed Liz’s are in that hospital room, I’ve been team #MillerHerbst He could be playing Franco and I’d be shipping Lanco.

I do not get all the Sam hate…I do think BM has chemistry with BH and do prefer Sam with Patrick now, but Elizabeth and Jason do not belong together. Elizabeth could never handle Jason’s life. She always wanted to change him. She always wanted to keep them a secret, remember the hotel meetings and lying under oath about who Jake’s father is, she is afraid of him (or his mob life) she does not get who he is… and now she is lying to him and making decisions for him, something Jason NEVER liked when people did to him.… Read more »

umm, everyone’s actions are the writer’s fault.

And no one knows what or who “true” Jason is. Jason Q morphed into Jason M. But Jason M is no longer who he was. He now has Jake’s (or Jason Q’s) sensibilities. So we have to wait to see what the writers create. Which Jason emerges. But at the moment Sam doesn’t understand a thing about Jason.

she said she blamed the writers (she left out the “new”) for Jason’s behavior and I said all the actions of all the characters are from the writers.

And in answer to your remark above–I think Jason will forgive Liz anything. It might take a while–but I don’t think he could stay mad at her. I’ve seen some pretty remarkable footage Liaison fans are posting on Twitter (I didn’t watch then–and forgot some of the stuff I’d seen) but it’s pretty clear that Jason and Liz will always be tied together is some significant way.

I personally can’t stand Sam. I don’t want he back with Jason, she’s mouthy and repulsive. I hope they play out the Cassadine curse on her, because frankly GH is becoming quite boring. I want Liz and Jason together, always have. They actually need to write Sam out of the show. She’s been with every man on the show and the only reason why she hasn’t slept with Nikolas is because he is her cousin! I want to see the curse play out on Sam.

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..
