GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason-Centric Episode Filled With Hallucinations & Memories!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s General Hospital, the ABC series delivered a standalone episode set to have lasting ramifications.  Director Bill Ludel, who just received a Daytime Emmys for his work of last year’s 52nd anniversary episode, was at the helm of this one which was billed as the “Jason-centric” show.

And Jason-centric it was led by Billy Miller (Jason) as Jason tries to survive a horrific accident where the van transporting Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) has smashed into his motorcycle.  Jason also needs to help save the life of Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) who is bleeding from a stab wound, and dangerously close to the van.

Bleeding, disoriented, and with yet another head trauma, Jason starts to hallucinate and first sees Robin (Kimberly McCullough) who tells him he knows what to do in the form of taking some risks to save Dante.  Between the hallucinations of various characters in Jason’s life, Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking about Jason in scenes juxtaposed against the Jason moments.   Now Carly (Laura Wright) has “visited” Jason, and clues him on that in order to save Dante he must move the van.   But then as Jason stumbles with his headache getting worse and worse, he sees the van is leaking which means it could soon explode.

Next, it’s Helena’s (Constance Towers) turn to mess with Jason’s head as he starts to fight out of the mind control, which has locked away his memories. Helena lets him know he will never regain them and calls him once again her, “Soldier Boy.”

She advises Jason to just get on his bike, ride away, and leave town.   Jason finds a broken route marker and decides to use that to lift the van away from Dante. But it’s Sam, who visits Jason next.  She tells him to not let Helena win and have his memories.  Then in the touching moment in the episode, played by Miller and Monaco, Jason tells Sam that he loves her, and is so worried about losing his memories again, and so he wants to make sure she knows how he feels about her right now.

Next, Jason gets the vision of Sonny, and it’s a key one to the story, as Jason is about to get on his bike and give up.  But then Jason recalls the night he and Sonny met that changed his life course forever.  Jason remembers Sonny helped him learn to survive and that “actions have consequences.”   Through Sonny’s word’s, Jason gets off the bike and does the superhuman feat – he forces the lever and somehow manages to lift the van. Jason gets Dante out of the way just seconds before the van explodes, and the episode fades to black.

So, what did you think of the Jason-centric episode?  What did you think about the performance of Billy Miller? Are you glad Jason is FINALLY getting his memories back?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.  But first watch the moment between Jason and Sam where he confesses he loves her.

Let me preface this by saying that GH is my soap and it has the best cast in all of daytime drama. I think I understand what the writers were trying to do today, but they did not accomplish what they had hoped to. I found the writing cringe-worthy. It did not ring true on an emotional level and descended into gimmickry. Despite all of the hoopla that went on there was no core of truth that was explored or revealed. I guess it was all just a means to an end, that of having Jason recover his memory. I… Read more »

I believe; that finally, people are realizing that Jean & Shelly are not the correct writers for GH..
GH is not a traditional soap, it never has been and never should be traditional..

GH needs new writers, the correct writers for GH are badly needed before GH can not come back from J&S’s dismembering of all that made GH great/different/unique and awesome!

Note; Since J&S- I have NOT laughed once, not even a chuckle..

What an absolutely on point assessment!!!! What most fans want, and have for decades now, is for Jason to return being the golden boy, the doctor, the leading man, the hero, not a heartless brain damaged murderer for hire. I get that it’s obviously a mandate from above that Sonny has to be the epicentre of all things, but that is where the hypocrisy ends any chance of the show having ANY kind of emotional core of truth. I cannot relate to murderers, and therefore, trying to present them as heroes just kiboshes and ruins the show for me! Jason’s… Read more »

the episode did not deliver, its overrated, its going to be satisfying to those who love him as stone cold, w/ sam, and his friendship w/ sonny or is it bromance? and bff carly. so that half of the audience is going to be thrill, yet, the other half it completely leaves us out and uninterested because this new team is doing exactly what the old team did, wish is just concentrating on the awful 4some we had to endure and watch bully their way with other characters, its sad because the audience at least a great part of us… Read more »

Just because Danny and Michael are cousins, with the age difference I can understand Sam tell Danny to say “hi” to uncle Michael.
I come from a big Italian Fanily and have cousins in their 70’s to 100 years old, I’ve always called auntie or uncle. It’s a sign of respect.

Despite the good acting, the appearance of Helena, whom I love, and my desire for Jason to get his memories back, I didn’t think it was a particularly interesting episode. Too much time spent trying to rescue Dante, and I kept wondering why Nathan would go off and leave his partner in such a bad predicament..

I found this episode very frustrating mainly because of Billy Miller’s mumbling through his lines. The background music didn’t help. I had to rewind each scene with Miller at least once to try and make sense of what he was saying. Billy is a terrific actor but his poor enunciation in my opinion is holding him back. My partner who watches GH with me rather reluctantly has often complained about Billy’s mumbling in fact today he said “I think he needs some voice coaching”. Again, I genuinely like Miller and am not meaning to cast him in a bad light… Read more »

I loved this episode! It’s so good to see Jason with the people that have mattered the most in his life. It was even better to see Sam and Michael interacting and talking about Jason. The two people that he loves unconditionally. Can’t wait to see what else Jelly have in store for Jason and Sam!

Definitely more May Sleeps than May Sweeps. I do not think I’ve seen a GH show so boring in quite some time. It’s sad because while I’m happy they brought back Robin and Helena, it was a wasted effort. Maybe it’s about time for people to really rally around the idea that Jason-centric episodes (or a show centered primarily around Sonny/Carly/Jason/Sam) is really not in the best interest of the fans and the show (even though some of us have been rallying around this for years). I understand that there should be leads who drive story, but how many more… Read more »

I liked this episode. It wasn’t just Jason’s breakthrough with the past…but some of the positive things about himself from his relationships with key figures in his life… Robin, Kelly, Carly, Sonny (yes, even Sonny, but that doesn’t mean he has to fall into his criminal orbit again)…that gave him the extra push he needed to free Dante. And a chance to break Helena’s “Soldier boy” mind control spell over him. But I do wish the writers would find other ways to have big stories happen than accidents on the dark roads around Port Charles. And I’m not going to… Read more »

I’ve noticed that many comments to this article and the previous one about Robin appearing to Jason seem to think just because Sonny “offered his advise” that Jason was back under Sonny’s wing. If you listen to what Sonny actually said it was “how to survive, and actions have consequences” among other things. Nothing wrong with that, no kissing the ring from Jason. I don’t want Jason back in the mob, but I’m going to hope that he takes some of the good from wherever he got it and moves on with his new life. For me, hopefully more Quartermaine,… Read more »

Rose, I loved this episode. Billy Miller moved me very deeply, especially in the exchange with Sonny. He looked up at Sonny like a lost son; it was a heartbreaking moment. And the next episode he was so kind and gentle with the injured Dante. I know I’m biased as a Billy-addict, but it does not diminish the greatness of his work lately. Maybe all these months of torture are about to pay off?

Due to the hype my expectations were high for this Jason-centric episode. They were not met. This time last year GH had their “Best show” Emmy episode in the can. I hope they don’t submit this one. Yawn. With the exception of Laura Wright and Constance Towers the acting was not on point for me…..and this is from a lifelong GH super fan.

I’ve said this before, but Sonny, Carly, Jason and Sam are legacy characters–vets. I do want Jason to connect with the Quartermaines. But I want him to connect with the Corinthos’ too.

Hi Wil. Just wondering…what do you consider to be a legacy character? I would DEFINITELY not consider Sam a legacy character! She has only been in town for 12 years. She came on as a con woman with ties to NO ONE, and was eventually shoehorned into the Cassadine family through Alexis after several rounds of rewriting her so-called history. Carly, okay, but only because she is Bobbie’s daughter, and Bobbie has been on the show for 40 years. Sonny….sorry, I just can NOT correctly call him a legacy character. Yes, he has been in town and on the show… Read more »

Legacy characters for me are those who were introduced first year, their relatives, and offspring. The rest, like Anna, Sam, the Cassadines and Corrinthos, have made enough of a presence and mark on the stories that they become supporting legacy. Sort of like Henry VIII through to current Queen Elizabeth. But you can’t ignore Diana, Camille and many others that have woven into the fabric over the years and have had some staying power. Just too bad the Q’s didn’t leave as many heirs. This may not work for everyone, but it’s good enough for me unless the writers really… Read more »

I think that requiring ties back to the 70s is a little extreme. LOL. Sam, to me, having been on the canvas for 12 years straight, was with Sonny, who’s been on for 23 years, has kids with a legacy character, adopted Michael, a legacy character. A combination of time on the show, and how deeply they’ve become invested into the Port Charles canvas makes a legacy character. The Quartermaines, who I love, have been decimated by previous regimes. I’ve been waiting for the writers to resurrect some of them, but they’re not interested in that it seems. New characters… Read more »

where’s human emotion… man up buck up… get near women and children… fight for “world peace”

care about healthcare

focus… emotion that’s relative

Patrick…I’m finding holding on to legacy anything is hard,,even 20 years out. We can all have our ideas about who should be with whom, what profession, crime lords or not, etc., but regardless it’s especially comforting for our soaps to keep to their roots as much as possible…using my real life example Queen Elizabeth, family, Tudors…even with their scandals over the years which can rival any soap.

As far as real world stuff, I’m sure we both have a lot to say…but not for MF.

Personally because of the recast and the fact that no matter how much Billy Miller tries we will never be Steve Burton’s Jason I think it is a big mistake to have Jason get his memories back. As Jason with no little memory to his past, this version of Jason had a chance to go where the old Jason character could not. I realize some fans of the old Jason might be thrilled that the character will get his memories back, but frankly I think it would have been better for the long term development of the character that he… Read more »

ooops I posted this wrongly below;
problem is;
Jean & Shelly should have never put Billy/Jason with Sam; not working.
I believe RC had no intention of reuniting Sam and Jason, that is why he put Liz in Jake/Jason’s orbit.

Sam and Jason are no longer, without Steve B there is no Sam and Jason..
RC had it right- J&S messed it up forcing Billy/Jason with Sam..

As I have stated more than once, when Jason picks a memory and goes with it as his character, Billy Miller’s contract will be up and we will all have wasted 3 years on this story and have to replace our speakers on our TV’s because we had to turn them up so loud when Billy was on screen!

I miss the good old days of soaps when real stories were carefully crafted with emotional payoffs instead of these ridiculous “very special episodes” that the writers think will gain them an Emmy.

As for Sonny pointing out that “actions have consequences” — what a joke! Sonny murdered AJ Quartermaine and then served twenty minutes behind bars before having his sentence commuted for an “act of bravery” he committed after HE ESCAPED FROM PRISON. Oh wait — maybe Sonny meant that actions have consequences if you’re not a Corinthos…

As I began watching the episode, and knowing from the spoilers that it was about Jason getting parts of his memory back, my hope was that he would remember his medical training (way back when, while a Quartermaine) and attempt to save the lives of those hurt in the accident (with his past knowledge/use of medical skills). A few minutes in, and it became the Jason, boring/monotone Sam, Sonny, Carly, and Michael show and I was completely turned-off by the episode. I had it on in the background as I cleaned my kitchen, barely paying attention to it. Then, I… Read more »

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
