GENERAL HOSPITAL: The House Of Horrors That Is The Crichton-Clark Clinic … Stavros Cassadine Returns!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Oh-oh!  Looks like lots of demented and creepy people are running loose at the now infamous Crichton-Clark Clinic on General Hospital!

And today, while chained to one of the holding rooms, Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) are greeted by the resurrected and unfrozen … Stavros Cassadine (Robert Kelker-Kelly)!

This time, Stavros in his obsessive Shakespearean drawl has a surprise for Lulu!  He has fertilized one of Lulu’s eggs that he gleaned while she was his captive on Cassadine Island, and now all that is left to do is implant the embryo into Lulu!

And as Stavros exclaims to a chained Lulu:  “Our child will be of noble blood. Not a blood of some peasants from Bensonhurst!”  In addition on the episode:  Peter Harrell (Zachary Garred) walks into Victor’s (Thaao Penghlis) office, and is definitely thirsty for revenge too, and acting, shall we say, a bit off-kilter!

Watch Stavros’ return after the jump, and then let us know what you thought of it? Glad to see RKK back on your screens?  What do you think in the latest in the ongoing embryo drama for Lulu and Dante?

It’s a terrible story line does the writers want the show cancelled because I’m ready to stop watching

I can’t disagree with you, Susan. As much as I love The Cassadines and would welcome most veterans of the past back-not in this way, it’s such a ridiculous storyline. It’s such a waste of air-time and talent.

This is just more “recycling” of way too old storylines. Whatever happened to writers with creative talents? All this focus on horror (blended with the absurd) is annoying to some of us. I shut off the TV as soon as the talk about “you’re going to have my baby”, said the madman, started. I’d rather listen to elevator music than spend time following this storyline.

Stop watching. This is GH like it was in the 80’s and the Ice Princess. Its over the top but its entertaining. Thats why Y&R was always a good 2nd soap because their show is less campy and more character driven. Your choice.

Timm, you could not be more wrong. This is not at all what we had in the 80’s. Yes, the 80’s had stories which required a suspension of disbelief but it also had great characters like Luke, Laura. Robert etc. etc. We believed in these characters and rooted for them so we were able to follow these character driven stories into that land of suspended disbelief. We also had a sub text of excellent, solid and interesting characters such as the Quartermaine’s, The Kelly’s and the Baldwin’s. GH in the 80’s had over-the-top stories, yes, but they were leveled by… Read more »

MaxDaddee: I agree. I miss watching the Quartermaine’s (love having Ned back), stories based on medical drama at the hospital, friendships and relationships evolve, and romances.

Harry’s right! There was a real balance between the reality and fantasy storylines of the 1980’s GH. We had plenty of true-to-life, gripping drama…. relationships and friendships were explored and emphasized in detail, as well. Even the criminals had some sort of basis in the real world, for the most part, they were not completely cartoonish or totally over-the-top. For example, the original Stavros, while chillingly creepy, was still as composed and elegant as one would expect of a Cassadine. Now we have this leering lunatic played by RKK that is so off-the-rails insane that he is hardly amusing or… Read more »

I love every minute of it! I absolutely love Stavros, and Victor. So glad were getting to see more of the Cassadines again. Now if Helena would just pop up I would be one very happy person. I was not a fan I Levi at all. But this kidnapping storyline is AMAZING. I love how half of the town is involved in this story. I hope that RKK (Stavros) is on for more than just a few Episodes and I hope Victor continues to be on as well. I just love General Hospital it’s so AMAZING!!!

It is all repetition..been there done that. How many times can Frankenstein’s monster be recreated? Maybe as a spoof? ….because it is exactly what this is…no goosebumps about it..lol. There is no suspense. I couldn’t wait for the mad scene between Lulu and Stavros to be over…yeah, she looked really scared. I find more suspense in wishing Maxie a safe haven…awaiting for the cavalry to appear on the horizon and rescue everyone. Where is Prince Valiant? This would be an opportune and superman-sort-of-effect for Nicolas to show his princely prowess…he doesn’t do much for the soap…so, let’s give him this… Read more »

I think GH should be commended for taking big risks in the present by using past history (Aztec adventure, Cassidine craziness) to complicate current situations. I don’t watch other daytime soaps. But, with only four on air now & competition from online programming, it’s clear GH can’t just be run-of-the-mill and expect to keep an audience by rerunning past relationship tropes. The one thing that set GH apart from all the other soaps were the adventure stories started by Gloria Monty, the bromances, the over-the-top fantasy element, and the humor. Glad to see the current regime remembers these & is… Read more »

I think GH should be ridiculed for re-writing every classic story they touch. What is the purpose of combining the Aztec Treasure story with the Ice Princess. Its almost as though FV and RC are making a big mush of parody. It would be one thing if it weren’t so plot driven, GH was never like that in the earlier days this team is trying to filch from.

He plays a great villain. I love Victor, too. Loved Spencer’s scenes with Emma, Patrick, and Sam. That little guy has star quality!

harry
Guest

Really? Because I think he’s just a terrible actor. I thought RKK was good back in the day on Another World but time has not been on his side
If they had to bring back a Cassadine back from the dead, why not Stavros who was at least fleshed out to be a multifaceted, and believable character?

harry
Guest
harry

I meant Stefan, not Stavros. Stefan was an interesting character whose internal battle between good and bad always provided an interesting story.
But I think Ron is a black and white thinker. His villains have to be mono chromatic black while his heroes have to be all goodness and light.
To me, his villains are not creepy or scary because they are not believable.
I’d rather read a Batman comic book.

dmr
Guest
dmr

I think he is supposed to be “over the top;” but, I agree-some of it is too much and it comes off as bad acting. I don’t think the terrible storyline helps matters. The actors must feel ridiculous having to say these dumb lines. It’s completely unbelievable. Tired of the rehashed lines-Lulu and her embryo-tired of listening to the same ol’ lines. I liked Stefan, too.

MaxDaddee
Guest
MaxDaddee

Harry raises a good point about Stefan. His character did struggle between doing good and trying to get what he wanted via the low road. He knew how to love and tried to deal with the Cassadine dark side in him (and his looney family). I think it takes strong writers to be able to develop and maintain plot lines with characters like that. It does make for much more interesting stories and more drama. GH lacks drama these days, it’s more like “here’s a quick glimpse at what’s behind door #1, then door #2…maybe we’ll get back to door… Read more »

harry, I also liked Stefan. The only thing I didn’t like was that, whenever he and Laura were about to get close, something would prevent it. Stefan is the only Cassidine I liked.

Harry, good point about Stefan. It takes a special writer to write for a complex character like that. I sure miss the days when Patrick Mulcahey wrote for Stefan’s character. Now there was writing. Add Stephen Nichols in as Stefan and it was pure gold. I love watching his old YouTube videos from those days!

The man is phenomenal. He puts the cray in crazy! If he hadn’t already been Stavros he would have more than filled the original Franco’s shoes had James Franco not been cast in the role. Love to shudder at Stavros. A great looking psychopath played with frenzy and finesse! Didn’t watch today’s episode yet…looking forward to it! Some may balk at his return…but I think it’s a great homage to GH history to have Laura’s daughter (once again) be the latest object of obsession. How thoughtful of Victor to serve Lulu to him.

I never thought of him as a possibility for Franco but that’s a great idea! To be honest, Roger Howarth as Franco really isn’t working IMO, I think he would have been much better cast as Jimmy Lee Holt or another Q or maybe even Valentin Cassadine (though I’ve always wanted Vincent Irizzary in that role). It’s just so hard seeing Roger Howarth call Kin Shriner “dad”.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

Hi Jimmy! Ha! Ya, it is funny seeing Roger with Kin but all the ages on soaps are skewed. Actors are parents of people ten years younger than them in real life in some cases…

I love Roger…and I like him as the “now” Franco…not the James Franco/Franco…or the infantile Franco they wrote for him until recently. I think…or hope…that the writers are creating a more intelligent…although possibly volatile/devious Franco…as well as someone capable of great love/loyalty…vulnerability…sorta like…guess who? Todd! But Roger plays that so well.

But, yeah, LOL, Robert Kelker Kelly is one hot maniac!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Yeah, the father-son thing is kind of kooky. It would have worked if Roger looked younger than his years, but he looks his age. No way could he pass as Kin’s son in reality.
But, it’s a soap, and as such, it is entitled to do as it pleases, no matter how far-fetched. Nonetheless, I love Roger Howarth and I fully expect him to linger as long as possible.

Jamesj75
Guest
Jamesj75

Jimmy, I couldn’t agree with you more. I think, despite Roger Howarth’s great acting ability, the character of Franco is not working. It’s all so contrived and unbelievable, particularly the father/son thing with Scotty.

It is indeed exceptional and absolutely not like the other 3 soaps, and that is a good thing..

If I see her eat one more BLT I’m going to have to check myself into Miscavige. As for Nina and Stavros…Dr. O, Faison, Stavros…their evil/loony ways make up a lot of the adventure GH has always dabbled in. There is still enough romance, drama, crime, friendship, complicated relationships, divided loyalties , alliances, betrayals yada yada… I like that Ned is back. I’m… Read more »

Agreed, I love Roger too. I do hope he will not be either a devious or volatile Franco. Actually, he seems to be showing some backbone; the way he revealed his doubts to Carly says much,….so no deviousness there…he was upfront. As far as writing his role as volatile does not jive with this Franco. He seems determined as he strives to tackle whatever is thrown his way; focused with his “students” and the people with whom he deals on a day-to-day basis; nominally, Nina. ….which brings me to the end of my winded comment. But, not before saying that… Read more »

Ah…CeeCee…Franco is “trying” to be a better person. I believe he really wants to be and is maturing…finally finding a purpose again. He’s in love, he’s working, he’s made a friend in Nina. However, I also believe all that will change once he finds out Carly’s been cheating on him. Then we’ll see the volatile Franco…he’ll be hurt, angry and out for vengeance. He’ll tell Michael about Sonny shooting AJ…it’s the calm before the storm….

C’est vrai, rebecca…est-ce que tu parles francais? I’m still somewhat fluent, thanks to seven years of boarding school.

Of course, you’re right about the calm before the storm, rebecca. But, I would think that’s out of anger and hurt, as you say. It’s a human reaction, not necessarily mercurial. We have all been hurt some time or other, but we don’t all break into acts of violence. However, in this case, I just realized that you may have a point. Franco is a different breed…his ‘tumor’ may insidiously start reappearing (lol) causing him to throw caution to the wind, abandoning all the good intentions filed in his head. I don’t really want to see this happening…..I think he… Read more »

When you describe Stavros so eloquently, rebecca? Yeah, he excels in his portrayal of the dastardly, demented fiend. He reminds me of Jack Nicholson, in THE SHINING, with his crazy eyes…any minute, I was expecting Stavros. To yell out, ” Luuluu, honey, I’m ho-ome !”

It’ll be a REALLY BIG BLOW, CeeCee!

There’s going to be a lot of damage in all directions. He’s like a pot with the lid on…once he boils over is… Read more »

Ehh…same old, same old. Robert Kelker-Kelly should go back to DOOL and re-take the role of Bo Brady. …my mom’s words…
I really did not get into this scene….no drama, bad acting. This scene was not executed as well as it was probably written.
It seems that the Cassadines are coming out of the woodwork…I could have sworn Stavros had little icicles stuck to his brows.

Beth CP
Guest
Beth CP

@ CeeCee-Agree. This story, as well as RKK’s schtick is old and worn out. And really, how gag inducing is the thought of L being forcibly implanted with a child that is Nik’s half brother as well as his nephew. The legacy daughter of Luke and Laura deserves to be treated as something more than just a broodmare. As well, DZ deserves to have a story that offers him something more to do than rescue his kidnapped wife. I detested the character of Stavros when he was introduced and still detest him all these years later…….

GH50
Guest
GH50

Beth CP- I agree and I think it’s kind of gag inducing just the fact that Stavros “fertilized” the egg. That it exists even without implanting is just gross. I’m not sure if TPTB think that’s really edgy and sick enough to get attention but I think it’s just too much. I’m from crazy stuff going down with the Cassadines, but the thought of this stuff is uncomfortable for me, it borders a little to much on the incestuous.

Beth CP
Guest
Beth CP

@ CeeCee-Agree with your assessment here. The story as well as RKK’s schtick is getting old and worn out. Not to mention RC’s writing of this version of L to be little more than a broodmare and D to once again look ineffectual as he’s put in the position of trying to save his wife. Sad when you think how self sufficient both characters were on their own as well as together in the past. I also find it insulting overall to those of us who have family in law enforcement that much of the PCPD is made to look… Read more »

I don’t know how you differentiate “dumb” on General Hospital…

Poisoning the water?

Casey the alien?

Lucy the vampire slayer?

Walking around with other people’s faces?

Resurrecting the dead?

Marrying your rapist? (Luke/Laura)

Carly loving Sonny (after threatening to kill her)

Carly loving Franco (after orchestrating her son’s rape)

Weather machines that can freeze the world…

See a pattern? Dumb? LOL…It’s General Hospital. Love it or leave it…For me, it’s all fun/fiction/fantasy rolled into one.

Beth CP
Guest
Beth CP

@ rebbecca1-Yes many things are “dumb” but at least with many of those examples you cited there were other stories going on that counterbalanced the “dumbness”. That Laura married Luke was a gymnastic piece of “dumb” story telling that ultimately was addressed years later. And just because my little musings indicate I’m less than thrilled with the show doesn’t mean I should be given an ultimatum to “Love it or leave it….”. If my honest, from the heart views make me one to be scorned and mocked, so be it.

I have a feeling that we’re not going to be seeing that much of Milo or Epiphany so it was just a good-natured comical exit for the two. They’ll probably pop up occasionally but I doubt they’ll have any storyline devoted to them. As for the age difference doesn’t bother me…if guys can date much younger then I’m all for the other way around.

I see RKK ditched the beard and goatee this time, and somehow that makes him look even more creepy in this role. He’s a riot as Stavros Cassadine, a totally over the top villain in the mold of soap opera villains from the past. And this scheme to get Lulu pregnant with a Cassadine heir sounds like something a psycho like him would come up with.

I agree with CeeCee…he shouldve went back to Days as a recast Bo…some threads ago i said Stravos would return after Levi included Lulu in the kidnapping…i too thought Stravos’ return was a little overplayed-too campy but the episode was still entertaining…not as good as Mondays…love Dr.Mutter and Anna in scenes together!

Well, if for no other reason, it gives Lulu and Dante something to do and maybe Starvos’s obsession with Lulu will bring Laura back on? What a big hole with all her loved ones in major story lines and no Laura.

I don’t blame him for not wanting to work with Days considering how they treated him unfairly by bringing Peter back. Not that I dislike Peter, since he is the original Bo, however … RKK was doing a fine job in the role at that time. He just didn’t have much chemistry with K. Alfonso.
I’m just happy to see RKK back and hope he stays on awhile longer this time …

I thought they took Lulu to help unfreeze him, since she survived her thawing, but lo and behold he was already alive and kicking. But now what? Are they going to kill him off again– I mean each time he returns from the dead he is bit more crazy– I swear he is one death away from becoming full fledged zombie—

Watching him yesterday I kept thinking all he needs is long mustache to twirl and some railroad tracks to tie Lulu to— LOL ( a reference to a classic silent screen villain from the twenties)

CeeCee

Funny you should say that, Mary. I can clearly envision Lulu being tied to the railroad tracks as Stavros furtively looks this way and that making sure no one sees him or stops him…haha…hilarious. My grandparents have an extensive collection of ‘oldies’. As a little girl I would always play these records. One of the 45’s has a song by George Jones titled “Along Came Jones”. I used to play it over and over again. When I read your post, it brought it all back…so funny.

and your point is???? They still fired RKK and brought PR back for no reason OTHER than the original actor had nothing else going on that year.
He’s gone again and perhaps RKK would have still been there …. !!

Ces…y-e-s…where B-O-T-H of your posts are concerned, I was thinking the e-x-a-c-t same thing. Like…DUH!!!!! Also, I always thought that Robert Kelker-Kelly was a WAY BETTER ACTOR than Peter Reckell. Guess what…I still do!!!!! Ces…I can just imagine PR playing the role of Stavros Cassadine on GH…as in N-O-T!!!!!! Nope.

Take care, Ces. Peace.

This story is so ridiculous. Really isn’t there enough real events in the lives of these characters to write a believe able story. All this coming back from the dead! All we need is a good vampire to complete the nonsense. I can barely watch anymore. So sick of recycled stories/characters. It’s bad enough to be mob invested but now ghouls too. Can’t get behind this crap.

Well-
Soaps have never been ”believable ” they are make-believe fantasy BS ..
and GH does it greater and better than any other soap..
GH does have a Vampire, Caleb , he is just resting now..
I like the dead coming back/unfrozen.. (what if they are zombies ahahaa..

((it all worked for Dark Shadows that still has a great fan following 😉 lol

GH has a variety of characters and all types of stories, something for everyone ..

I am lovin the Cassadine’s !! the most vivid family of all the soaps..

Crazy Eyes Cassadine is back and I couldn’t be happier! I love Stavros and Robert Kelker-Kelly is great! I thought he did really well in this return scene, he was creepy and scary and everything a Cassadine should be! His return scenes last year with Luke and Laura were equally as good. And even though this plot is ridiculous and kind of gross, I’m really looking forward to seeing the rest of it plays out!

Hey CeeCee… The Cassadines and Spencers have a looooooooong history! They’ve always been at war…many of the stories focussed on kidnapping, revenge, etc. The thing about Lulu is that Stavros and his mother Helena kidnapped Laura, Lulu’s mother. Stavros was obsessed with her…and it was later learned he fathered Laura’s son, Nicolas (Cassadine.) Thus, Stavros has always been obsessed with Laura (again, Lulu’s mother). He kidnapped Lulu and in true psycho form thought Lulu was Laura! She escaped obviously…and now he has transferred his obsession with Laura on to Lulu. I can see for those who never watched the show… Read more »

This is the stuff General Hospital was built on! I love how the Cassadines are responsible for all the havoc in town and Happy to see the Good vs Evil storylines return.

Only GH can give its audience goosebumps!! GH truly is unique!!

GH is not for everyone.. it is out of the soap box unique!!

It seems General Hospital has more of a cult type following than just ordinary fans..

Hello, CeeCee! I don’t know that I have necessarily “softened” toward Nathan as much as I have discovered a new appreciation for the direction in which his character has been taken.

However, since he magically became Mutter’s son and Levi’s nemesis, I have found him much more appealing and animated….RP has diligently been working on his acting skills and it shows!

Hi Mary SF,
Hey…the “Scooby Gang” comments (especially yours…thanks) has me thinking (aka an idea): I think that Scooby Doo And The Gang should take a little road trip in their Mystery Machine van and head on over to the Y&R set. And…once they get there, Scoob & Co. should TRICK AND SCARE the following Y&R-ers into leaving:
1. Jill Farren Phelps
2. That SNOOZE-FILLED Dylan
3. Y&R’s current so-called writing staff
4. That O-L-D DINOSAUR Victor

10. Nu Abby

@soapbaby…it’s interesting how you don’t like Nathan or think the actor who plays him is good. He’s actually become one of (or perhaps is) my favorite character! I am beyond impressed at how much his acting has improved since he first walked on set; I find him so sincere with just a glance…to me he shows more realism than anyone on the show! There’s a naturalness…an easiness…a sincerity…that just floors me! Throw into the mix his stunning looks…and, well…swoon.

Even though I am one of those rare females not completely besotted with “Studly Do Right,” I am the first to admit that RP’s acting abilities have vastly improved since first he hit the GH canvas. He is extremely credible and likable as Nathan. He’s absolutely adorable with Maxie…so sweet, and I am thrilled that with their new pairing, her passion for fashion is once again becoming apparent. I’ve been waiting forever for her to shed all that “New Age” nonsense and get back to her old, but fabulous self!

CeeCee

Ditto. All he has to do is stand there…he exudes masculinity . But, looks aside…I don’t see why so many posters think he’s wooden. His acting has gotten so much better. He does not have the seal of ‘par excellance’ as yet, but he will get there. His facial expressions, as he performs, are spot on…and, he shows emotion which throws this ‘wooden’ notion right out the window…or stage, lol.

My big problem with this story line is the lack of Luke and Laura, as well as Frisco (given how Jack Wagner felt about his return, it’ll be a cold day in hell before sets foot on the GH stage). Although it’s kind of appropriately creepy that Stavros would fixate on Lulu since he can’t have Laura. Every time they unfreeze him, he’s just crazier and crazier. I would like to see at least another semi-normal Cassadine like Valentin. I’m sorry that they dropped that idea, unless they revive and it turns out that he’s the son of Alexandria Quartermaine… Read more »

For two days last week, General Hospital was nothing but four sets of two talking heads blathering on between commercial breaks. I was screaming at the TV. “PLEASE!

I am not sure if she is on contract… but I think they will use her for revenge against Ava and the baby…she may take the baby or some other cray cray storyline. I just don’t see how they can write Ava having Morgans baby, so it will have to be Sonny’s. That storyline is warped, as Morgan is just a kid.

I do not see her tied to the canvas in any other way for longevity so maybe that’s how she will be written off… Cinderella story turned Psycho Revenge Kitty.

Hi, again, Elite. Imagine if the baby is Sonny’s and Sabrina is also his daughter? What irony! Suppose Sabrina tries to do this baby harm…her own sibling!

I am not too comfortable with the idea of hurting babies. If she entertains the thought of hurting the baby., that thought will dissipate in seconds.

Some of the audience may want a reunion with Laura but Anthony Geary has made it clear that he does not. He loves the idea of Luke and Tracy. And I think he’s right.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
