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?

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 lost children here…Scotty attracted to Ava but why when we rarely get to see him…Felicia should be involved more in Ryan’s story but of course it all goes to Carly…Carly and Nina has their own stories but thats not enough so lets get them more involved and practically take other characters stories and make them more theirs!!!!

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.

Carly will be next but survives…Maxi could be one-Peter will rescue her but gets stabbed himself…Peter will survive but its Maxi who wills him to live when she realizes she loves him and tells him so-BIG SNOOZE alert here!!!

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
