Lucky rescues Elizabeth, who’s suffering from hypothermia.  After an encounter with Nikolas, Lucky makes the decision to sit vigil by an unconscious Elizabeth’s bedside and apologizes for the way he’s been treating her.  Wanting to deliberately hurt him, Carly allows Jax to think she slept with Sonny but later sets the record straight when she shows up at his hotel suite where he’s moved with Josslyn.  Jax tells Carly he’s reached his limit where their relationship is concerned.  Jason and Sam return to the penthouse from the police station to find the place decked out in Valentine’s Day décor, courtesy of Molly and Kristina.  Lulu and Dante’s kiss heats up, setting off the alarms on his monitors.  Maxie and Spinelli declare their love. Elizabeth, Lucky and Nikolas are blindsided when Kelly tells them Elizabeth’s pregnant.  Lucky and Nikolas both vow to stand by Elizabeth no matter who the father turns out to be.  After finding Elizabeth on the hospital roof looking ready to jump, Steve, Lucky and Nikolas agree she needs to go to Shadybrook.  Dante begins to let go of some of his anger towards Olivia.  Sonny asks Lulu to try and help him forge a relationship with Dante but she refuses.  Lulu tells Sonny that Dante accepted Mac’s offer to join the police force.  Sonny confronts Dante, who doesn’t hide the fact he’s still going to work to bring Sonny down.  Neither Jax nor Carly want to give up on their marriage but both are too stubborn to admit it and plan on forcing the other’s hand.  Molly and Kristina are thrilled to find Mac and Alexis making out.  Lucky and Nikolas manage to convince Elizabeth that it’s in her and her children’s best interests if she went to Shadybrook for treatment.  After Steve gets Elizabeth settled in her room, Helena makes a surprise appearance.

Lucky tells Luke he believes the best thing for Elizabeth would be for them to get remarried and raise the baby together even if Nikolas is the father but Luke points out the flaws in his thinking.  Nikolas stuns Lucky when he tells him he plans on asking Elizabeth to marry him.  Helena menaces Elizabeth, causing her to unravel even further.  Luke confronts Nikolas after learning Helena is back in town.  Carly thinks she knows a way to help Sonny and goes to see Dante.  Jason refuses to allow Sonny to plead justifiable homicide. Lucky warns Helena to stay away from Elizabeth.  Lucky tells Elizabeth what he thinks she needs to hear.  While an angry Lucky speeds down the highway, he ends up on a collision course with Maxie.  Olivia clashes with Carly when she finds her with Dante.  Sonny points out to Olivia that things might have turned out differently had she been honest with him from the very beginning.  Johnny makes a move against Sonny.  Dante wonders if Jason is planning on silencing him permanently.

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis’ Life Further Implodes, Olivia Vows Revenge, Nina’s About to Get the Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it excellent performances, and continues to be the show in recent months that has given us the best cliffhangers week after week.

In story, Alexis, who has now been taken into police custody for attacking Franco, (but instead ends up injecting Dante with a syringe filled with an overdose of lidocaine), is with Mac who tries to make her see how her drinking has completely trashed her life, and on her birthday no less!  Mac says she’ll be charged with murder if Dante dies; even though Alexis says she was only trying to protect Sam from Franco.

Olivia, who is beside herself heads to General Hospital, where she learns Dante is in critical condition and that Alexis is the one who gave him the injection which put him in this state.  When she finds out more details of what happened to her son, she is even more confused as to why Dante would run-in to save Franco.

Now in the chapel, Robert joins her and tries to console her.  Ned shows up and Robert tells him to leave after figuring out from Olivia that Alexis and Ned slept together.  After praying for Dante, Olivia leaves the chapel and outside of it, swears she will get revenge on Alexis and make her pay for having an affair with her husband and now almost killing her son!

Back at the police station, Mac believes Alexis’ life crumbled to pieces because of Julian Jerome, and she is now throwing her life away, again.  Mac gets a call from the hospital where he learns that Dante will survive, but he tells Alexis she is being charged with aggravated assault and attempted murder.

Monica learns from Ned and Tracy what happened while she was at a medical conference and how Tracy framed Alexis.  Monica urges Tracy to hightail it out of the country.  It’s the only way Ned will forgive her for what she did.  Later, a police officer shows up with a warrant for Tracy, but Monica says Tracy is not at the Q’s and has left the country.

At the Metro Court following the Sasha/Jackie interview, Nina, who is reeling that Sasha had the other half of the necklace she believes was with her true bio-daughter, puts the two pieces together and Carly’s cover-up begins to become exposed.  Michael tells Nina that Avery found the necklace in the woods near the family cabin. He then shares that the last person to stay at the cabin, as far as he knows, was Nelle when she kidnapped Wiley.   Then, Valentin reminds everyone that Phyllis took Nina’s baby to Florida; which prompts Michael to share that Nelle was from Florida. Carly is really squirming now.   Nina wonders if Nelle is her daughter then.  Jax says he cannot lie to her anymore and needs to tell her the truth! Carly is busted, unless Jax says something else?  We won’t know till Monday’s episode!

Elsewhere, Phyllis takes Sonny (aka Mike) to get checked out at the clinic for his mental state.  Sonny is very manic and feels there is nothing wrong with him and he is on top of the world.  The doctor checks the blood work Sonny had previously and reveals there was a trace of lithium in it, leading to the conclusion that “Mike” has bipolar disorder.  Phyllis, who shares that she did a bad thing in her lifetime (the Nina baby ordeal) that she regrets, wants “Mike” to take the pill.  He apparently does, but with a smile. Did he swallow the pill?

Throughout the show, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), Lisa LoCicero, (Olivia) Jane Elliot (Tracy), Cynthia Watros (Nina) and Maurice Benard (Sonny) all had moments that kept us riveted to the episode.

So, what do you think Olivia will do to Alexis?  Will Nina learn the whole truth and nothing but the truth from Jax?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.
