GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Tells Drew The Devastating Truth About Oscar

Courtesy/ABC

We love seeing one of the finest actresses in the genre, Tamara Braun (Kim) getting an opportunity to have an emotional storyline and to become more front and center stage.  On Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, after Oscar (Garren Stitt) suffered from seizures and was taken to the hospital, an overwrought Kim is asked by Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) what is wrong with Oscar?  Kim tells her he has a kind of cancer, but does not say what kind. and is clearly not ready to talk about it yet.

Oscar’s dad, Drew (Billy Miller) arrives at GH.  When he finds his son, Oscar tells Drew that it was just low blood sugar that caused him to land in the hospital, but Drew looks disbelieving.   Josslyn (Eden McCoy) who has been waiting in the park for Oscar on their 1-year anniversary of dating, but spent time with Cameron (William Lipton) instead (who tried to kiss her), gets a call from Drew’s phone.  Oscar informs her he is the hospital but is OK.  When Josslyn arrives he shares a photo album he has kept of their time together over the past year, and we hear as an emotional back-drop Josslyn’s performance at the Nurses Ball, “I Never Knew”.

Elizabeth tries one more time to talk to Kim, and to tell her she must level with Drew about his son’s condition. Kim informs Liz; she does not want it to color the time Drew and Oscar will have left together.

When Drew confronts Kim, she tells him this has happened with Oscar before.  After demanding answers, Kim finally opens up and breaks down and admits that their son has an inoperable brain tumor, and nothing can be done for him.  She has been dealing with this for the last two years, and has consulted with doctors and no one knows just how long Oscar will live.  Drew gets more shocking news; Kim has never let on to Oscar that he is dying.  She wants him to get up and look forward to the next day for whatever remaining time he has left.  Drew is in tears, as the two parents share a hug.   Touching work by Billy Miller and Braun, as well throughout from Garren Stitt.

Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) is back in Port Charles, explaining to her parents that things went south with Parker, and that she needed her own life. She says that the two of them have broken up and she is home to stay and moving in with Sam (Kelly Monaco)!

Thanks to Chase (Josh Swickard), Anna (Finola Hughes) is reunited with her son, Peter (Wes Ramsey)   Chase warned Peter not to hurt Anna, or he would be arrested.  Finn (Michael Easton) is worried Anna will be heartbroken.  He also thanks Chase for all je has done and the brothers bond, while Chase also gives an update that Cassandra (Jessica Tuck) is nowhere to be found.

Anna has now come to see Peter to tell him that she is his mother, and if there is anything he needs to please come to her.  Peter is still taking a hard-line when it comes to Anna; not letting his guard down, but keeping his distance and his anger towards her for abandoning him as a child,

So, what did you think of Oscar’s diagnosis that he has an inoperable brain tumor? What did you think of today’s performance by Braun, Miller and Hughes? What do you think will happen next in the story?  Comment below.

Yikes!!! I think we’re in for another tear-inducing story the way we got it when stone was diagnosed with AIDS. As heartbreaking as it is to see on the screen, these things happen in real life and in this case as it was with Stone, it makes for very good drama which is what soaps are supposed to be about as opposed to all these stories that center around the mob or coming back from the dead. I’ll be tuning in especially for this story!!!

THIS is the kind of story daytime dramas do so well and what keeps me coming back (even when I say I won’t!). And this cast of actors is meeting the challenges. Mr. Miller and Ms. Braun never disappoint me. Great episode and turn of events. Considering GH’s history though, I have to wonder why there is not some way to resurrect Oscar after he dies.

We’re going to hope he doesn’t die. Just keeps them worrying long enough until they find the miracle cure to get Kim and Drew together, Drew and Jason bonded, maybe the DA deciding to give Drew his memories back, with Kim gone Julian and Alexis perhaps back together.

I would be truly heartbroken if they killed off Oscar. On a lighter note, he can wind up in Salem over at Days. They have some secret potion that brings people back to life.

oh please, lets not kill off Oscar , I’m all for the heartbreaking story but lets have a happy ending, isn’t Griffin an oncologist? great acting all around, oh I forgot, didn’t liz say her friend terry is a specialist in that field? hopefully Terry will save Oscar..

Another brain tumor. Another evil twin. Another baby switch. SSDD Wow, these writers are original, aren’t they? And poor Drew another woman lying to him. Just what this Drew fan wants to see. BORING

I got a bit of whiplash with this sudden story turn. I felt like the writers didn’t have anywhere to go with these characters and decided to rush into this. Why couldn’t there have been some clue weeks before that Kim was keeping a secret about Oscar? Yes, they haven’t been on very long and the story is completely plausible. What bothers me is that even Kim was acting nonchalant about Oscar when he nearly froze to death during the earthquake; being more concerned about his hypothermia than a brain tumor taking him. It would have been an excellent time… Read more »

“…I got a bit of whiplash with this sudden story turn ” so agree on your read. the hypothermia .. so well done, back then… threw me all over the place and cemented this threesome way back then on what a solid family this is and coulda woulda shoulda …. with Kim, Drew, and Oscar. which is just fodder for MORE please on this solid trio of actors. but to throw in he’s dying ??? !!!! argh! who knows… since Julian “paid” off his son’s surrogate . I thought it odd that Kim even hesitated to tell Drew. knowing HER… Read more »

I don’t like Oscar he’s a wimp.as for Terry GH had better change the actor I could not stand the episode where this man/woman whatever spoiled the whole show. It must have been a shock to many viewers to see this because the Terry character has not been seen since.

So true Patrick. Tamara and Billy are dynamite together and great actors as well. Finally a plot that will let them shine brightly again!

This story could involve a lot of different characters on the show.For example since Oscar is dating Josslyn Sonny and Carly could be drawn into this story.Then Sam and Jason could be drawn into this story too since Oscar is the half brother of Sam’s daughter and Oscar is Jason’s nephew.Plus since Oscar is a Quartermaine Monica, Michael and Ned and other members of that family could get involved in the story too.So this story could encompass a lot of characters if told the right way.

It will encompass many and probably be the catalyst for a Drew/Kim relationship, with Kim with Drew maybe Julian back with Alexis, Drew and Jason bonding; Franco should be in the mix since he’s a cousin but I think the writers forgot that! However, PLEASE let it NOT involve Sonny and Carly. We need to see less of them; not more.

Oh, rebecca1, if only! But since Joss is Oscar’s girlfriend, Carly will make it her moment somehow. God forbid she drop in on her “business” that Olivia apparently runs singlehandedly or goes to Payless to find some shoes that fit properly.

I think Oscarshould have a good life. Not only days or months to live. I think Griffin should be consulted. And he finds a cure for Oscar’s condition. And the two gay guys should admit that the baby they want to adopt is micheal abd nell’s baby. And then they should both go to jail.

Well Lucas doesn’t know the baby he and Brad have is really Michael and Nelle’s baby.So he shouldn’t be punished for something he didn’t know.However if Lucas does find out and he say anything then he should be punished along with Brad.

Well after Monday’s show, we just know that poor Oscar will find out he’s dying, before his parents can tell him. As Drew said, too many people know, and now add Franco to that list, Cam will probably overhear him and his mother talking, and run and tell Joss, who will somehow slip it to Oscar. Knowing this boy, he will not want his parents knowing that he knows. Old, but sad story. I do hope Brad finds out and does the right thing for once, looking into the idea of baby Wylie saving Oscar, maybe by stem cell or… Read more »
