Courtesy/ABC

Port Charles rings in 2019 with a night of celebration, love in the air, and a serial killer striking again.  Many residents are gathering at the Metro Court for the New Year’s Eve party hosted by Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) that benefits pediatric cancer research.

Meanwhile, Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) is heading over to the producer’s studio and edit bay where Peyton has been working on the documentary about the serial killer.  Previously, after Peyton had made mention that Ryan could be alive, because he visited the site where Ryan died and no DNA was ever found. Ryan clearly wants to shut him up for good and alter the footage.  We see Ryan with rubber gloves going into the bay, and later checking Peyton’s phone to see who might be looking for him.

Curtis (Donnell Turner) is heading over to meet Peyton. and promises Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) he will meet her at the NYE party by midnight, after getting a text to move up their get-together from tomorrow to now! When Curtis arrives on the scene, he opens the edit bay door, and finds blood splattered everywhere, but no body.  He calls Jordan to tell her there is a crime scene and to meet him.

At the hospital, Drew (Billy Miller) and Kim (Tamara Braun) share a tender moment, when Kim recounts that New Year’s Eve was when Oscar was conceived, and how she decided to be a single mom, but it was apparent how much she loved Drew, although he has no recollection of it.  However, in the moment the two share a kiss which is witnessed by Julian (William deVry) who has returned from the Metro Court party to be with Kim to welcome in 2019.  He sees Drew and Kim kissing through the window and hightails it back to the Metro Court.  Will he end up in a smooch with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn)?

Ava (Maura West) is at her place lamenting over Kiki’s old New Year’s resolution and grieving her daughter.  Ryan shows up vowing to not let anyone hurt Ava, and if they do they will have to contend with him.  The two share a kiss.  When will Ava realize she is cozying up with her daughter’s killer?

Inside the party, Michael (Chad Duell) is smitten with Willow (Katelyn MacMullen),  while Willow shared a kiss with Chase (Josh Swickard), and Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) and Valerie (Brytni Sarpy) have an awkward moment between them, while Scott (Kin Shriner) and Laura (Genie Francis) chat it up about how “Kevin” is sleeping with Ava.

On the balcony of the Metro Court, Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) share a moment and a kiss to ring in the New Year.  However, Jason notices something off about the plastic snowman placed behind them, and sees some blood.  When he kicks it over, Peyton falls out dead.

So, as 2019 begins, which duo’s are you rooting for to be together?  Who will be next on Ryan’s murderous spree?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

An actor looks at the script, remembers his/her lines and delivers those lines. Jon Lindstrom makes his lines crackle and spark and he does it without resorting to mugging it up. His art is subtle and the result is powerful. Watching Ryan pretend to be Kevin is fascinating. Jon Lindstrom is the most talented actor on daytime period. This is why he’s getting so much work on the big screen, on Amazon. GH is lucky to have him.

Sasha is Nina’s sister…Daisy is Sam’s daughter…no dna found at murder scene?…Ava pregnant by Ryan…Val obviously gay…Chase the only cop-so commisioner Jordan has to be called when he too busy with Willow…Micheal also likes Willow…Willow Nina’s daughter…Nina and Willow dislike each other…Willow’s baby died but thinks her child is with Brad and Lucas but baby really is Nelles and Micheals…Mike has many forgetful moments due to his Alzsheimer and sometimes forgets Sonny is his son but never forgets Yvonne’s name…Jordans husband Curtis is really the son of his aunt stella who had an affair with Yvonnes husband Marcus…too many long… Read more »

Jimh, kudos to you, and Happy New Year! You have hit every nail, soundly on it’s head! Please explain why you think Sasha is Nina’s sister and Willow her daughter.I guess because Nina doesn’t think Charlotte is perfect, the way she does. I have always believed that Curtis is Stella’s son, but Marcus doesn’t seem to have as fond memories as Stella does. It is funny how Mike remembers Yvonne and Stella’s names. He likes his ladies. Now, tell us who the next victim is.

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..
