Before Lucky can visit Siobhan, Anthony visits her in her hospital bed.  Siobhan leaves a message.  Skye harbors Jax safely and in secret.  Carly faces off with Sonny for being a murderer.  Jackal, P.I., pauses over the bakery name “Luzetta’s.”  What is the gumshoe onto? Liz fears Lucky will blame her for some recent issues.  Will Lucky find Siobhan’s mysterious message?  Carly and Shawn discuss family as Sonny takes vigil in his greatest regrets at the GH chapel.  Sonny gets Michael on his side.  Maxie takes Jackal, P.I., to Georgie’s grave in hopes that will jog his true identity.  Abby calls Michael out on his irresponsible support of his father over Jax.

Skye delights when she discovers Tracy trying to cover her tracks about Gino Soleito.  Later, Skye meets up with Anthony to discuss the terms of their scheme as Johnny arrives to overhear.  Dante arrives to hear Sonny and Carly fighting about Jax.  An emotional glimmer of Spinelli shines through – and is gone again.  It gets ugly between Abby and Sonny.  Later, Abby runs into Johnny, and they discover they have a lot in common.

Despite his seizures, Jason tries to conduct business from his hospital bed.  Sam puts her foot down, and the two share a romantic moment planning their wedding.  Later, Robin arrives with a shocking explanation for Jason’s seizures.  Drugs threaten to take a place in Lucky’s life again.  Meanwhile, Steve questions Liz and Matt over missing drugs at the hospital.  Matt discovers Siobhan’s note and shows it to Lucky  – what does it mean?  Jackal, P.I., continues his stakeout of Luzetta’s, making himself at home in the dumpster.  Mac comforts Alexis as she mourns missing Jax.  Diane and Max break up.

At the hospital Patrick, Robin and Matt discuss Jason’s surgery. Robin would like Matt to assist Patrick, but Patrick bristles at the suggestion. He argues that his little brother would be too busy competing and would be a distraction. At the nurses’ station Elizabeth frets that Steve and Epiphany will discover she was the nurse who stole the drugs. Matt calms her down; she got them for Lucky, so she shouldn’t worry. Carly catches up with Michael to tell him that Sonny is manipulating him, but Michael accuses her of being one of her “I hate Sonny” rampages. He knows Carly will forgive Sonny sooner than later. Carly admits that was true in the past, but says this time is different. Matt and Elizabeth join Robin and Patrick as Patrick repeats that he does not want Matt assisting him in surgery. Matt argues that Patrick needs an extra pair of hands and eyes and Elizabeth agrees.  Meanwhile Jason and Sam debate on whether Jason should have surgery. Jason wants to make this decision with Sam; what does she think? Do they risk the time they have together now or try to buy more time later? Later Sam joins the group by the nurses’ station. She announces that Jason has decided to have the surgery. Carly overhears and slips away as Monica tells Sam that she made the right decision. Patrick and Matt continue to argue until Matt angrily agrees to stay out of the OR.

Carly sneaks into Jason’s room where she can’t help but dump her worries about Michael following in Sonny’s footsteps. Sam enters and chastises Carly for making Jason worry before his operation. Carly realizes Sam is right and leaves. Sam takes a moment to thank Jason for every day they had together and how she looks forward to the rest of their lives together. She leans down to kiss him, but a nurse interrupts. It’s time to head to the OR.

As Jason is wheeled away, Robin urges Monica, Carly and Elizabeth to not watch the surgery. Instead go home or somewhere safe and think of Jason. Patrick warns Edward that Jason may not wake up the same person, which gives Monica hope. She wonders if it’s bad to wish for the old Jason back. Edward grimly warns Monica to be careful for she wishes for.  Sam returns to Jason’s hospital room where she looks at a photo of them from their vacation in Hawaii. She has a fantasy where she and Jason are married and have moved to Hawaii. Jason spends his days surfing while Sam searches for sunken treasure. Her latest adventure includes a tribal mask that leads reveals the coordinates of an old World War II ship (that is rumored to have gold) when placed over a map of the area. Jason excitedly agrees to go with Sam as a stranger lurks nearby, listening. Elizabeth heads to her art studio where she remembers Jason seeking shelter there after he had been shot (many, many years ago). She has a fantasy where Jason is an architect and she is a successful artist. Jason announces he has to move to Tokyo for his next project. Elizabeth agrees to go with him as we learn they have no kids and live a very bohemian lifestyle. Jason urges Elizabeth to finish her last piece for her upcoming art show as he removes his clothes. It turns out Jason is also Elizabeth’s muse. Later Jason finds Elizabeth’s unopened package of birth control.

Monica returns home where she gazes at an old photo of Jason. She has a fantasy where Alan (who is alive in this alternate world) brings Jason into the living room. Here’s to the new Chief of Staff! Tracy and Edward join them in a toast as Monica subtly removes the champagne flute from Jason’s hand, indicating he could have a substance abuse issue. Sure enough, later Monica sees Jason snorting cocaine. Carly enters Jake’s where she has a fantasy of Jason as the new mob boss. He enters Jake’s to play some pool with Carly. Jason tells Carly he couldn’t have secured all those territories without her and almost kisses her. Carly smiles; the sky is the limit as long as they are together! Later Michael walks in and barks at his mother. Back at the hospital Patrick goes to remove the foreign particle in Jason’s brain, but he begins to bleed.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brando Dies … But Not From His Wounds

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, poor Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) was hit with yet another punch to the gut.  After losing her baby, Liam, back in December of 20201, she has now lost her husband, Brando (Johnny Wactor), in s shocking turn events that played out in Brando’s hospital room.

Finally coming to (following being ‘hooked’ by the mysterious figure) after surviving hours of surgery from his wounds, he goes coughs up blood and then goes into a massive seizure right in front of Sasha.

Panicked, Sasha calls for help, where Portia (Brook Kerr) and her team run in to try to save Brando.  Next, we get a montage of the love story of Brando and Sasha, which is never a good sign on soap operas – as it more often than not – signals the end of the line for a character.

After Portia is completely rattled by why Brando is dying when the surgery is a success, eventually he passes away.  Portia comes out of his hospital room and tells Sasha they did everything they could.  Just then, Brando’s mom, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) along with Nina (Cynthia Watros), come by and all the women are struck with heartbreaking grief.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene and asks Portia what happened and she reveals there were sudden complications.

Wanting a moment alone to say goodbye to his cousin, Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Brando to take care of Liam and Mike when he sees them in heaven. Sonny also promises to take care of Sasha and Gladys. Next, Sasha wants Sonny to go into Brando’s room with her, and they are joined by Nina and Gladys, who all stand over his bedside in tears.

Elsewhere, Portia finds Finn (Michael Easton) to look over Brando’s medical reports and case, and relates that Brando’s symptoms don’t track with what happened to him when he was brought into the ER and what happened in surgery.  She ponders if there is a more sinister explanation for his death, hoping Finn (even though he is an infectious disease doc) can help shed some light.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Linda Purl Guest Stars as Peyton and Carly Open Old Wounds

Thursday’s episode of General Hospital featured a guest star turn by TV and film star, Linda Purl taking on the role of Mrs. Wade Honeycutt aka Peyton.

In story, while delayed in Jacksonville on her way to Aruba, Carly (Laura Wright) is blindsided by a woman who comes up to her saying how refreshing it is to see someone reading a book and not on their cellphone. Carly shares she lost the phone on the plane she was on before she was grounded due to bad weather in Jacksonville. Being in Jacksonville is the last place that Carly wants to be; given this is the place she grew up in and was then known as “Caroline Benson”.

When the woman named “Peyton” joins her at her table, they talk about Jacksonville. The very-opinionated Peyton shares that she is a member of the city beautification board.  Then, she looks at the bar and sees a married man she knows with a young woman who is not his daughter, which sets her off.  Peyton calls ‘her kind, trash’, alluding to that the young woman is a call girl.  Carly is taken aback by her comments.  Shockingly, Peyton reveals how Ruby Anderson’s boarding house was torn down by her beautification board, because everybody knew it was a brothel. Next, Carly reveals Ruby was her great aunt.

All of a sudden, a horrified and emotional Carly realizes who Peyton is!  Peyton was married to another man before her current husband Wade. Peyton realizes Carly is Caroline Benson, and knows that Carly has been using her daughter Reese’s nickname.  At that point, Peyton lets Carly have it as she blames her for Reese’s death.

We then learn that Carly seduced Peyton’s then-husband Daniel. Carly defends herself as a 16-year-old teen and that her husband was an adult, so he was at fault for everything.  Peyton calls Carly ‘trash’ who just wanted Reese’s life and tried to get it by sleeping with her father. When Reese found out about the tryst, she was devastated and got in a car, and wound up in the accident that killed her.

Carly tells Peyton she is not having this; she is a grown woman and owes her nothing.  Peyton tells her to get out of Jacksonville as soon as possible because she doesn’t belong there and never did.

The scenes between Purl and Laura Wright were outstanding.  However, many fans have referenced that the back-story of Reese and Carly was altered.

So, what did you think of the scenes between Linda Purl and Laura Wright as Peyton and Carly drudge up the past? Comment below.
