General Hospital

GH prepares viewers for tearjerker! Little Jake in hit and run!

Courtesy/ABC

Word spread over the past week that General Hospital is preparing viewers for a real tearjerker, In the middle of it is all is Jason and Elizabeth’s biological son, Jake, who is going to be injured in a hit and run. ABC Daytime has released a brand new promo, which is our featured On-Air On-Soaps Video of the Day, showing the history of Jason’s relationship with Jake, and how to keep his son safe, the mob hit man gave him up to Lucky and Elizabeth to raise as their own.

As the must-see week on General Hospital unfolds, the town of Port Charles will see a tragedy unfold like never before! Here is part of the set up….just as Elizabeth learns the truth about Aiden’s paternity, her other son Jake wanders off and he is hit by a car and immediately taken to General Hospital for urgent care.  In the meantime, Carly and Jax’s daughter, Josslyn becomes ill and the parents get a devastating diagnosis. GH promises that one way or another, a miracle will happen. Plus, who was responsible?  Everyone from Sam, Sonny and Brenda, Robin, Luke, Lisa, Theo or Carly could be guilty of running down the little boy!

So we ask you, the loyal viewers, are you upset by the set-up of Jake being mowed down? Do you see a story reminiscent of the legendary BJ/Maxie heart-transplant story coming down the pike? Let us know! We hear the performances from everyone are not-to-be missed!

I am disgusted that they are doing this to Jake. So much story yet to be told. He is part Quartermaine after all. In the 30+ years I have watched this show and now I am done. Thanks to GH writers and TPTB that have given me an extra hour to my day!

I, too, have been watching gh for 30+ years and if they play this lame storyline to the end and do not let Jake miraculously survive, then I am also through. I will no longer tune in. I watch gh because of all the connections to the characters. Jake’s story down the road has all kinds of possibilities. If they aren’t smart enough to see that, then they can stick with their lame story lines for others to watch but I won’t be one of them. They don’t mind saving the other “temporary” characters like Brenda, when Vanessa M is… Read more »

I pray they DO NOT kill off Elizabeth and Jason’s and I definitely hope they doNOT do a repeat of BJ/MAXIE. I like the fact that Jason has a beautiful boy in secret (for now) but has a wonderful connection. Besides ENOUGH of the baby’s death. General Hospital I hope he survives or else…

I am disgusted with this story as well, mostly because of the way it is written. It most deffinately is to pave the way for jasam baby, and it is obviousl they don’t want any scenes between jason and Liz that might make fans want the pairing or pull for them, The writing is so lopsided against Liz it is rediculous. I just want the writers to know It does not matter if Liz and jason are together or apart, If jake is dead or alive , I will never accept jasam as acouple or as parents. it will most… Read more »

The fact that GH has decided to hurt another child and if rumors are correct to have him die, is not going to be a smart move. This little boy is a Hardy, Webber and Quartermaine with so much potential story line for the future. The fact that no one in PC knows that he is Jason’s son because they are all blind is a travesty. The better story would be for him to live and have Jason and Liz co parent him and allow him to be around his grandma and great grandfather. Talk about lazy writing. Joss is… Read more »

This is going to be so sad. Why does it take the death of a child for the adults to get their priorities in order? These children in PC are unsupervized most of the time. it”s unfortunate, but not surprizing that this accident happens.

I know the performances will be great and it will be a heartwrenching story, but I do not appreciate the repitition of the BJ/Maxie storyline nor am I pleased to hear that Jake will die from this. There is so much story with little Jake and I think the same reactions of bringing characters together and characters realizing the important things life can be expressed by having Jake injured or in a coma to be aged later. I’m really tired of the writers killing off great legendary characters for the plot point of the week. It’s garbage I refuse to… Read more »

I’m on the fence. On the one hand I don’t want to see a child hurt or killed. On the other hand- it is a soap opera & this is classic soapy drama. On AMC Brooke’s daughter was killed by a drunk driver, on DOOL Bo and Hope’s son was killed by a hit and run, and BJ was killed on GH and a young Maxie was given her heart. They are terrible situations that we don’t want to see but they are stories that will give us good acting and the soap opera drama that we expect. I just… Read more »

This is going to be so sad. Jason should really be able to tell Jake that he is his father . No child should live with a lie about their paternity. Also I also think that the powers of be at GH should bring back Stavros. He had always been so kind to Laura and Lulu. So why shouldn’t he come back ? It make for a great storyline . Especially now that Leslie Lu is all grown up.

Yes, this another BJ/Maxie, b/c they want to end the relationship between Jason/Elizabeth. Why is it always saving Carly or Sonny children? So all the children are Sonny’s. Why doesn’t Jake have to die so Carly child live? Why can her child die. I’m asking the question but I do know why. They want to make us feel for Jason but I don’t and well not, he gave Jake away but was involved with every other child on that show. With Jake they had so many stories but of coarse Jake isn’t Sonny,Carly or Alexis. What happen with the Q’s… Read more »

Well then maybe they should do this story if you think its gonna kill everyithing between Liz and Jason. Just done with everyone thinking they are doing this so Jason and Sam can have a baby. That doesnt even make sense.
If this is the way the writer are gonna go, to kill that relationship that went way over what it should have then go for it.
I dont want to see a child die, but this is a soap!!! TV, Drama not real life.
Who knows, it just may redeem Lizs character

I hate this storyline already. Why does Jake have to be sacrificed for Joss Jaxs? ABCD/Disney/GH keep making the same mistakes. GH is the only soap fixated on the constant violence against women & children. They don’t consider that most of their audience are women with young children and won’t want to see a young child violently mowed down & the devastating outcome that follows. Jake has ties to 2 legacy families and it makes no sense to kill him off -he has so much more story to tell. It’s like ABC/Disney/GH mission is to kill of all of their… Read more »

Hopefully there’ll be no tragic end. Keep Jake alive with his many links to the familial ties he has with the Webber, Hardy, and Quartermaine. He has the potential to show the safe side of General Hospital instead of those continuous mob centric stories. Let Jason, Liz, and Lucky lead him and teach what it is right & good. We all know how Michael’s life is going to be, Sonny’s right hand man just b/c of how Jason, Sonny, & Carly have raised him. Look how Y&R are using the next generation of Newmans (father vs offsprings). This show knows… Read more »

I am so very upset. And I am hoping for a miracle. I am hoping that GH will not kill off Jasn and Elizabeth’s son, Jake. It makes no sense to me really. Why kill off the possibility of future storyline for Jason and Jake…and Elizabeth. Why? If GH is hoping to sever the connection between Jason and Elizabeth then they are sadly mistaken. Jason and Elizabeth were connected a long time ago and the death of their son will not end it. If anything a tragedy like this will make it stronger. If GH does indeed go this route,… Read more »

I am disgusted on many levels. One being that Jake has never known his father or the Q’s as a family. Two the storyline potential for Jason and Jake, Jason Elizabeth and Jake is throught the roof. Three we loose Jake a legacy child that connects Hardy/Quartermaines and continues GH history, and are stuck with Pablo/Aiden/baby pointless a kid NO ONE cares about unless they are Lucky/JJ fan. It’s annoying and contrived and agenda ridden. They always drag out Jake when they want a ratings boost. It’s pathetic that they need that little boy for ratings when the featured “everyone’s… Read more »

I can’t believe TPTB will kill Jake to spite the fans who got Becky back to work. I haven’t watch GH since 2008 but if Jake is kilkled to give Sam a kid that will be the end of GH for me and my friends. I want the Liason family and in 2011 but it’s all about Sonny and his family that is the show why can’t Joss die and give Jake a body part why kill him to same Joss, is she more important than Jake or is TPTB just don’t care about Liason and spit on our face… Read more »

I personally like the Mob part of General Hospital. I mean what are we supose to have white picket fence stories all the time, that would be very boring. Jason can have a family and that is a family with Sam and her family and hes starting to connect with the Qs a bit more, and yes, that is because of Sam who always engourages that in Jason.

I can’t believe that GH would kill off a character with so many historical ties to Port Charles, while Sonny has enough children to start his own commune.

I haven’t been happy with GH’s writing in a long time, but this story, which is incredibly myopic, sounds like a tease to bring in old viewers.

GH needs an overhaul — starting with writing.

Just my humble, but accurate opinion.

It would be most unfortunate for Jake to die without ever knowing that Jason was his biological father, and that is just one of the major differences that makes this storyline reek as opposed to the BJ/Maxie storyline that was truly compelling. IMO Jake should survive, and this story should result in his paternity being outed with Jason and Elizabeth raising him together. If Jake doesn’t survive, it’ll be hard to convince most people, including myself, that his death, on the heels of Rebecca Herbst’s firing (I’m happy that was reversed) and the radio show clip of Jackie Z (GH’s… Read more »

It is going to be a tearjerker and great drama I am sure. I know that Becky Herbst, JJ, and S. Burton will be fabulous and bring their A game to this. I am particularly sad for Elizabeth. She has had a horrible year. I hope there is some happiness for this character soon. I have to say I think it is short-sighted if he does die. There is so much storyline potential with this character and so mnay ties to the canvas. FYI GH writers, you wouldn’t have to spend half a commercial showing Jakes ties to Jason if… Read more »

There is absolutely no good reason to end Jake’s existense on GH. This little boy has so much storyline potential. He is a Q/Morgan and a Hardy/Webber. He has ties all across the canvas-hospital side and mob side. I hope this show makes the right decision and lets Jake recover. I would love to see this bring Jason and Elizabeth closer together and they work their way back to each other.

I am looking forward to this story. Lucky and Jason are going to break my heart. Loved the scene with Lucky and Luke hugging. I’m just glad that Jason has the love of his life Sam to confort him like she had him when her baby died. They will come full circle. As for Liz i don’t feel sorry for her it will be her fault. What kind of a mother leaves their door wide open with a child sitting there with all those toys around him. Also looking forward to Carly scenes with Jason.

How can one say that Sam will be a good mother? Is she somehow removed from all the others currently in PC that never know what is going on with their children or hardly ever with them? All we know is that Sam found it very easy to watch Jake be kidnapped and then to put him in peril when she hired the 2 thugs to pull a gun on them in the park. Sam does what is best for Sam, and she’s been doing that since before she strolled into PC!

Really?? Hmmm.. I know that Liz does what is best for Liz. I dont see Sam that way though not at all. She is the most selfless person on the show really. She doesnt judge people that is for sure. And the writers got that wrong with Sam watching Jake get kidnapped but after all the love of her life kinda just dropped her for ummmm what, someone that constantly asks him to Lie. Sam has always (before the kidnapping) watched out for Michael and her sisters so whatever. Liz is a liar most of the time and she uses… Read more »

Sam is extremely selfish. Sleeping with her mother’s husband hello…Sam is only out for sam.
They don’t want Elizabeth and Jason together which is fine. But Sam and Jason are a Joke also. Liz lies to protect her children, works her but off for her kids and is constantly helping people ie having courtney and jax’s baby. You just don’t like her which is fine …. I don’t like Sam. lets leave it at that. 🙂

Well, I’m a Liason fan, and personally, I don’t think this will bring Liz and Jason closer together, I think it will bring Lucky and Liz closer together since they were the custodial parent’s of the child, and if I cannot have Liason, I would rather have Elizabeth with her first love. So I wouldn’t speak for all of us. It would be different if Liz and Jason still shared screentime, but they don’t. Therefore, I see it more about Liz and Lucky coming back together down the line.

We’ll just have to agree to disagree on this topic. The BJ/Maxie storyline was one of the best in GH’s history and GH has given me no reason to believe this one won’t be as well. No character is indespensible, the deaths of both Alan & Emily proved that. Most of the comments I’ve read have been the point of view of a Liason or JaSam fan but I’m not looking at it from that angle but as a GH fan. When looking at potential storylines I don’t look at them as a couple fan (I’m a JaSam fan btw)… Read more »

As a 10 year fan of GH, I’m disgusted that they continue to use violence against a child as a plot point. The character of Jake has been through enough. GH has wasted 3 years with Jake and Jason. I wanted a real story with the paternity reveal and I wanted Jason and Elizabeth to raise their son. This is purely agenda driven. They are keeping Becky on but have plans to kill the one child that has so much potential for future stories?

Jason and Sam were a couple long before Elizabeth and will be long after… Elizabeth and Jason had zero appeal and no sizzle as a couple… Don’t blame Frons or Guza for that….Sam wanted a baby with Jason long before Jake came along and she would never want him sacrificied… so they could have a baby… Two years is not long enough for this couple… they have staying power… Let Elizabeth go back to Lucky who is the father of her baby and had her heart on a permanent lock… remember… GH does give the fans what they want….JASAM

All I know is I will watch the show in the next couple of weeks and if they kill of Jake, 3 weeks later Sam is pregnant then I have my answer how this soap is run. If it isn’t political then why did they fire Becky? Why are they killing off Jake? I think it stinks and someone is making this happen knowing full in well that there is Liason fans out there who want Liason to have a chance. I think Jasam have had many years of Chance as a couple. All soaps end couples and it is… Read more »

OMG I can not agree more brenda. It is not the writers fault that Jason and Liz have no chemistry. Ok, they have chemistry, but freind chemistry, nothing more. But then again, Jason has chemistry with a lot of people, like Robin, Maxie, tracy (love them), Ephiphany, Sonny, Lucky, and so on. And for everyone that says they are doing this for a jasam baby is just crazy. Said it before and I will say it again, even if they didnt do this story, and Jason and Sam had a kid, the Liason fans would be all over that too.… Read more »

Another thing, TPIC do not look the history of the show at all. Jason and Elizabeth have so much HISTORY ON GH AND YET they refuse to bring in their history. Jason has always loved and respected Elizabeth and always cared for her. But for 2 years GH has done everything in their POWER TO GET ME as a fan to forget they did. They have not allowed very many scenes with Jason and Elizabeth at all. I have had to endure 2 years of waiting and LONGING FOR A SCENE with my favorite couple. I have watched them for… Read more »

Actually I think the do get it. Liz and Jason DO Not have the history you like to think they do. Ive been watching longer than 10 years and watched when Liz first came on. For her it was always someone else, she never knew what they hell she wanted. Lucky left the show, robin left the show they tried Liz and Jason, didnt work then and it doesnt work now. Please…. Well for the majority anyway.

Well it is my opinion that I think Jason and Liz do have history and I have watched for 30 years and I don’t like someone telling me I don’t know anything about a couple that I love. I didn’t say anything about a Jasam post and how you don’t know anything. I beg to differ about the majority because I do have a lot of Liason fans who do want Liason. I don’t think Liason have been written to have a chance. And all couples don’t last on any soap. What makes you think Jasam are it. I still… Read more »

Well I never said they didnt have a history, yes they do. Not as a love affair that you all think they do. Searioulsy. Shenn never knew who the hell she wanted. She wanted Jason, oh but wait she slept with Zander, she wanted Jason, oh but wait luckys back. And your right all couple dont last, but I think Jasam will. Like Monica and Alan. They have potential to carry a long way. And if they do break up, it wont be for Liz that is for sure. They shold have just got rid of the character, legecy name… Read more »

You are spot on Laurie… they have a history as two people who cared about eachother but for whatever reason never quite made it work and had no chemistry… Elizabeth was wishy washy and still is … engaged to ucky and then sleeping with his brother nicholas for example…more than once. Sure Sam messed up big time and slept with RIC ONCE… and immediately regretted it and came clean to Jason even before he had a chance to tell her he saw. Elizabeth lied to Lucky for months. And Sam made that mistake … AFTER jason kept repeatedly rejecting her…… Read more »

Im sorry I even came in here and posted my opinions. I just think this killing off Jake is so sad and pathetic. If this is the direction they are going then it is so hurtful and sad. I have watched for 30 years. Fell in love with Liason. Longed for Liason to be a couple and be with Jake and family. All to watch them end and for TPIC to give it all to Jasam. I stopped watching when they made a MOBSTER who gave up his son for Danger and then went back with a woman who allowed… Read more »

Well it just goes to show you what kind of person jason is to be able to forgive sam. Afrter all all the lies and deceipt that Liz started to protect her little image started the chain of events. And Jsaon realized that. Just like he realized that Liz could never live in his world whether he stayed in the mob or not. You dont just get out of the mob!! They tried that. Sam was so much in love with Jason , (and Liz saw that many times, with the baby loss and her brother, and the poison, and… Read more »

Inez said it all…this s/l is not about Liason vs Jasam…it’s about the violence against yet another child on GH. It’s about the rehashing of a singularly touching and breakout s/l from years ago…between 2 close knit cousins that CANNOT be compared to 2 children who don;t know each other, of two mothers who HATE each other. Will it be great acting? Yes. Will it be great storytelling? Yes, if written correctly, but only short term. TIIC would have had sooo much more great storytelling if they let this little boy live and grow up…the stories of a legacy child… Read more »

I agree. But people need to stop sayying that they are doing this so that Jason and Sam can have a baby, that is just stupid. So when I see that Im gonna defend it. A baby for Jason and Sam could happen either way. And if Jake lives, or they never did this story, they liason fans would have a problem with that as well.

Sunny
Guest
Sunny

yeah, I’ve noticed that you keep defending it…ad naseum! But ya know what…it is true that this will pave the way for a Jasam baby…because the writers are too stupid to realize that you don’t need to kill Jake for Jason and Sam to procreate. The writers want every fan out there to love the pairing of Jason and Sam…it’s clear in the total disintergration of Liz’s charater over the years that they do not like Liz and want her unhappy and alone. They thought they finally were going to get rid if her until the huge backlash by the… Read more »

So if they do decide to let jake live and Jason and Sam have a child anyway people would have a problem with that to. And there is a huge Jason and Sam fan base. Huge.. And you dont know, this may be the story to make her strong and independent and respectful. Im sure Liz can do much better than jason too, someone that in her same league. And Sam does have him for a very long time now. Minus the summer of Liz and Jason sneaking aroung and lying. But again, this stuff happens everyday, kids die. ANd… Read more »

it’s obvious they are. It’s storyline dictated, let’s get real. Jason can’t voluntarily give up his child and have another and raise it so openly. Sorry, defend it all you want, it’s the writers insulting all the fans’ intelligence. Let Sam and Jason be together, who cares?! But why kill a kid in the process?? And a hit and run too, that’s pretty bold.

Dee

I don’t think people would have a problem with Jason having a kid with Sam regardless if Jake lived or not. It’s stupid and painful how obvious the writers are about their intentions. Why not have Jason and Sam TOGETHER have the BS reconstructive surgery to HELP save Jake via stem cells because he was ill??? Carly has enough storyline on her plate. This would be a great way to shut up JaSam and Liason fans once and for all. And really, who cares who either chicks end up with at this point. Regardless, yesterday’s episode was horrific and heart-wrenching… Read more »

I am so upset with this, I cannot believe that Jake is going to die….Sam can have a baby with Jaison without having to kill Jake. I strongly believe that Jakes role could be a very important one…..PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE dont make him die, maybe a coma or something but dont write off his character.
I love to see Emma Cameron and all the kids but theres something so special about Jake that makes me get so emocional.

I have watched GH since the 70’s. There were times when I would run home to see what was happening and my world would just stop revolving until the show was over. Nothing else mattered for that hour. I looked forward to it. I rooted for couples! I embraced them and so many storylines! Luke and Laura. Leslee, Rick and Monica. Robin and Stone. Frisco and Felicia. Lucky and Elizabeth. Scotty, Lucy and Dominique. Anna and Duke. I keep watching GH in the hopes that I will get some romance and love in the afternoon. Instead, I get Nikolas and… Read more »

I think what they should do is redo the paternity test for Jake and if Jake is Jason’s then they should just come right out with it. Lucky will be sad and hurt, but who gives a shit about Lucky, Jason will regret keeping this secret from Jakewhen he’s older. Of course, it’s dangerous for Jake’s paternity to be exposed, but it already has. There are multiple people who know about Jake being Jason’s, so what difference would it make? Elizabeth watches over her boys well and if it comes out he’ll be safe. Jason has enough money to get… Read more »

In regards to the continued comments against this storyline, once again, I agree. The sad thing is, the current regime just doesn’t put enough heart into storylines such as this. If Joss had been sick for quite awhile the same as Maxie had been, I could understand, but according to spoilers, it doesn’t happen that way. Too much is happening too quickly to digest it all overtime. We’re expected to take it as is within a matter of days of these tragedies unfolding. I play wait and see with all of these stories, but so far, the writing just isn’t… Read more »

I think that this will be a good story with far reaching impact if told well. Soaps re-tell classic shoddy lines all the time. I think we will see some powerful acting from Rebecca, Steve, Jonathan, and Laura. I think that revisiting the BJ/Maxie story can be very meaningfully retold with Jake/Joss because of the very close and unique relationship between Jason and Carly. Jason is Joss’ god-father after all. I will be very interested to see how this changes their relationship. I also think that this decision is a vehicle to push forward Jason/ Sam and Liz/Lucky.

Please, please do not let Jake die…as others have posted, down the road as Jake grows up this would make a great storyline. I have watched GH for 30+ years and if the writers choose this route, I am not going to watch the show anymore..
I hope the writers get enough response to this and that Jake will survive..

Please do not let Jake die! He could have such a good storyline now or years to come with his father (Jason). I have watched this show for many years. If they kill him off, I will never watch it again. They want to do another BJ/Maxie storyline. One time was enough. Please save Jake! They should get rid of Cameron. He has no use for the show, no storyline, no dad. Cmon people! Lets save Jake!

The writers dont care wht the fans think, thats obvious! Call the GH Comment Line 1 323 671 4583 and leave a message , let them know how you feel. I have already stopped watching and I have been a fan since Laura and Scotty’s honeymoon. There is enough tragedy in this world we dont need to see a little boy tragically die.

I’ve been watching gh for 16 years and never have i been more disgusted with a storyline and the writers. There is no need to kill Jake off. There are endless possiblities for Jake and kill him off is not one of them. This is the last straw. if they don’t change this, i know they are gonna lost MANY viewers. The Liason fans have put up a lot of bull but this is the worst. they’ve destroyed rebecca’s character and now they want to kill off a child for a STUPID reason. the bj/maxie storyline was legit and believable.… Read more »

I agree with many of the above comments about not killing off Jake due to the family line and the potential storylines. However on a much more superficial level I don’t want him to be killed off b/c the casting of the current Jake is soooo great. He looks like Jason’s kid and is adorable too. His smile and acting that day in hospital was adorable. Of all the kids around his looks and paternity is believable. Jake would be the last of the kids I would kill off. It reminds me of when LuLu was a baby, she was… Read more »

Jake had better survive this Guza! They kept Maxie cause there was more story there then Bj but now there is more story with Jake. What stories could be waiting with josslyn that couldn’t be surpassed by the possibilities that Jake’s stories hold? If Jake dies I’m so thru with gh I said I’d stay cause they kept Becky but this is like strike 3. Why put stories on the show that people just dread to watch! Put stories on that we can’t wait to watch. If Jake dies my 25 yrs of watching is all for not because I’m… Read more »

i think that is a good twist to the story because he is jasons son and something bad always happens to him but i sort of knew something was coming because nothing bad has happened to any of the young kids in a long time. but if one of the kids die i will be mad but i will not stop watching gh.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Family Says Their Goodbyes in Emotional Episode Filled With Touching Performances

For anyone who has been watching the emotional Alzheimer’s storyline play out on General Hospital, Wednesday’s episode was a key moment in the storytelling and for the Corinthos family.  To say that the cast delivered in this episode is an understatement; everyone had their moments, and of course, chief among them, Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Mike’s (Max Gail) life is coming to an end as his body is shutting down from the disease.  Stella (Vernee Watson) comes to Mike’s room at Turning Woods and tells Sonny that Mike is waiting for permission to let go.  She explains to Sonny that Mike is torn between this world and the afterlife.   Stella helps Sonny prepare for the final moments of Mike’s life, dimming the lights, giving Sonny ice chips to put on his father’s lips, and for Sonny to put on some of Mike’s favorite music – jazz.   She also gets Mike a blanket because he is getting cold.  Then in a touching moment played to perfection by Vernee Watson, Stella says her own goodbye to Mike and hugs Sonny and tells him how grateful she was to know Mike.

Carly (Laura Wright) had been by Sonny’s side every step of the way in the final days of Mike’s life.  At one point in Mike’s room with Sonny, she has a dream where Mike tells her she is his daughter.  It was another heartbreaking moment – this time played beautifully by Laura Wright.  Earlier, Michael (Chad Duell) said goodbye to his grandfather and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) had also come to Turning Woods, as has Brando (Johnny Wactor) to be there for the end of Mike’s life and to support Sonny

Sonny tells Mike, (who can hear, but cannot truly respond as the disease continues to shut down his body), that he has made peace with what went down between them when he was a child.  He tells Mike, “I just want you to go in peace and go with love.”  Later, Sonny had a recollection seeing his father pray in the back of the church when he was a child, which sparked an idea for him.   Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny know that Mike wants to be forgiven for his sins.

Then in the tearjerker, Father Ramos arrives to bless Mike and cleanse him from all of his sins, as Sonny, Carly, Michael and Josslyn witness it.

Afterwards, Jason realizes that Mike probably does not want to die in front of Sonny and tells Sonny to take a break, but Sonny does not want to – so Jason whispers to Mike that he should not worry that he will take care of Sonny. The two hope Mike will meet up with Morgan in heaven.

At the end of the episode, alone with his father, Sonny tells Mike not to be afraid, or to worry about him, and then remembers the night Mike walked out on him and his mother when he was a kid.  He says he knows his father always loved him … maybe too much.  We fade to black.  Maurice Benard’s work was again outstanding throughout these moments, making Sonny’s life-long pain, and love for this father, palpable.

As someone who went through this horrible disease with his mother, I can say, that GH played the beats of the story to perfection, honoring those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and the family members they leave behind.

So, what did you think of this emotional episode of GH and the performances by the cast? Comment below.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Let’s just make this official as we tweeted about it last week when these scenes aired on Tuesday.  And let’s just say, that Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) could very well receive another Daytime Emmy nomination next year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, if these moments are part of her reel.  LoCicero was previously nominated in 2015 in this category.

Now on to that performance that had everyone a-buzz on social media after it aired.  In the scenes, Robert (Tristan Rogers) has worked his WSB contacts to get Olivia to Geneva to secretly see her son, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), who is suffering from severe trauma and PTSD and is at this facility for treatment.  After traveling half way around the world to get there, with anticipation and wanting to hold her son and be there for him – when she arrives the doctor (Christopher Cousins) tells Dante his mother is here to see him, but Dante refuses to let that happen.

When the doctor tells Olivia that Dante will not open the door to his room to talk to his mom and come face-to-face with her, she goes into momma bear mode, releasing such heartache and anguish, just wanting to see Dante, but she is met with a steely shut door instead.  But as viewers saw, the scenes were made all the more poignant by the split screen; where Dante is on the other side of the door – heartbroken hearing his mother’s cries.  Dominic Zamprogna, who is always stellar, was also moving in these moments.

However, it was LoCicero’s ability to call up such deep rooted love and pain for her child, that any parent could relate to, which broke our hearts, rang so true, and showcased Lisa.

Later in the week, we also see how Liv was there for Robert in return  – and the two are now off on a mission of their own to find Holly (if she is indeed very much alive) which is sure to put a further wedge in her marriage to Ned (Wally Kurth).  That begs the questions, too.  How would you feel about a Robert and Olivia pairing…or would you be rooting for Olivia and Ned to work through their issues?

Through it all, it was Lisa LoCicero who grabbed our attention, brought out the hankies for all of us, and truly compelled the audience.  For all of these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Lisa’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

So, what did you think of Lisa in these scenes with Dominic? In case you missed them, you can check them out below, then share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt is the New Chief of Staff; But Who is the New Head Nurse?

On Friday’s General Hospital, the staff at the hospital was in for a shock when none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) waltzed in and announced that she was in the new Chief of Staff.  That left Finn (Michael Easton), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) and Portia (Brook Kerr) reeling.

Apparently, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) believes in Britt, and since he is now running the hospital and already pink-slipped Monica (Leslie Charleson) and Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), putting someone with a sketchy past in that position, who might do his bidding for him, was the perfect move for the drug lord.

Britt tells the crew that she is horrified by the mismanagement that has been happening at GH.  She then tells Elizabeth and Epiphany to check their new schedules as outlined by the new head nurse.  When everyone fires back at Britt that Epiphany is the head nurse, Britt reveals that it is Cyrus’ decision since he is now Chairman of the Board at GH.

Then, in a shocking moment for each of them, Elizabeth finds out that Epiphany has been put into an administrative position, where she will not be with the patients, while Liz has been cut back to only two shifts a week demoted to the satellite crew.

Finn is also in hot water as Britt tells him they need to set up a meeting, while Portia’s fate seems to be that she is safe, when Britt says she believes in her, and so too, does Cyrus.

What did you think of Britt arriving on the scene as the new Chief of Staff?  Who do you think might be GH’s new head nurse? Share your thoughts on the staffing changes via the comment section below.
