As toxic gas is released in the lab, Robin saves unconscious Patrick, dragging him to safety. She manages to also save Jason’s drug protocol but gets trapped inside the secure glass doors of the lab. She manages to get the drug to Patrick, but although Patrick tries desperately to get Robin out, with their hands meeting on either side of the glass, the lab explodes. As Carly searches for Johnny on the roads, we realize someone is about to murder Dante. At the last minute, Sonny jumps in the line of fire, saving his son’s life. Later, Dante gets help, but Steve, Mac, and Kate only find a pool of blood. Michael discovers an unauthorized party at the lakehouse — and a drunk, unconscious Molly! All fingers point at TJ. Maxie tries to keep Matt from getting drunk with Elizabeth. Meanwhile, Maggie blurts out a lie — that she and Steve had an affair! — to keep Olivia from finding out their secret.

As Patrick battles to get to Robin, Sam and firefighters force him to give up when they discover her charred ID and body in the debris. Later, Sam holds Jason’s antidote as Anna asks Patrick about Robin’s whereabouts. Meanwhile, Jason asks Spinelli to dig deeper into Franco’s recent DVD gift. Carly accompanies Johnny home to face a bleeding, angry Sonny. Dante arrives ready to prevent a mob war, and Johnny implicates Anthony in more than one attempt on Dante’s life. Meanwhile, Tracy questions a suspicious acting Anthony on his whereabouts, though Anthony tries to deflect suspicion onto Kate, who is having a total meltdown about Sonny’s whereabouts and whether he’s dead or alive. Michael watches over a recovering Molly until Alexis comes home. Furious, she bans TJ from ever seeing Molly again, but Molly defends TJ.

Sam makes a decision on whether or not to tell Jason about what has transpired at the hospital.  Patrick speaks to Anna, and pain turns to anger.  EOD, Sam has an important request for Patrick.  Dante and Sonny discuss their vying allegiances to family and to law.  Meanwhile, Olivia realizes Kate is more shaken by the events than she lets on. Carly and Johnny get close, only for Shawn to interrupt at the door.

The last thing Patrick wants to do is save Jason’s life, and he tells Sam flat-out that Jason doesn’t deserve to live while Robin has died. By the end of the episode, Patrick all but declares that Jason Morgan is as good as dead. Meanwhile, Anna breaks the news to Mac and makes a call to find Robert. Mac then runs into Sonny at the hospital and tells him about Robin. The two men argue about how Robin’s life was affected by her getting caught up in Sonny’s world, and Sonny ends up devastated. After interrupting her rendezvous with Johnny, Shawn admits his romantic interest in Carly, but she is at a loss for words. Later, Carly and Johnny have a heated and passionate moment. Tracy, Edward, and Anthony discuss the Soleito mob past and Sonny Corinthos. Tracy thinks Anthony was the one behind the shooting. Later, Sonny appears at the Quartermaines, thirsty for Anthony. Cassandra and Ethan fall deeper in love, and she fires Ewen as her psychologist. But soon enough, Helena Cassadine appears with a dagger. Meanwhile, Ewen discovers Kate in the storm, wearing her bloody wedding dress.

Anna manages to bring Patrick to reason — Robin would never forgive him for letting Jason die. Finally, Patrick tells Sam he will save Jason. Starr Manning and Cole Thornhart are driving through Port Charles with their baby daughter, Hope, on their way to finding a place to settle down and keep Cole away from the law. Cole professes his love and devotion to Starr just as a car swerves into their direction. Sonny holds Anthony at gunpoint, eager to take out his vengeance on the old man. Tracy surprises everyone and protects Anthony from Sonny’s wrath. But as Anthony speeds away, he thinks he sees Sonny chasing him, and he drives into oncoming traffic when his tires suddenly go out.  Kate is just as confused as Ewen about why she is standing in the storm in her bloody wedding dress. Did she blackout? What is going on with her? She tells Ewen about her recent instances of losing time. We realize Helena has mastered a plan all along for Ethan to fall for Cassandra — only for her to betray him. Worse yet, Luke is helplessly bound and gagged. Helena intends for someone to die. Dante and Lulu discuss Sonny’s sacrifice in saving Dante’s life, and Dante breaks the news of Robin’s death.

I am so proud to be a fan of Kimberly and Jason…so proud to be a Scrubs fan. Monday’s scenes made me cry so hard, and I am not a cryer when it comes to watching soaps…except for when I watch Jason and Kimberly in the happiest and saddest moments. Their last “I Love You” ‘s, telling one another how they were each other’s “whole life…my whole world,” tore my heart into shreds. Watching Patrick fight to save the love of his life, and break down completely when he was told Robin was gone, and that all that was left were her wedding and engagement rings, and then telling Anna the horrible story about what had happened, saying over and over again: “I couldn’t save her. I’m sorry,” and wondering how he was going to tell Emma about her mother. Jason Thompson and Finola Hughes were absolutely stellar in these scenes, and Jason played the enraged, grieving husband to perfection as he ripped into Sam when she discovered he had the protocol to save Jason in his hands no more than ten minutes after he was told the love of his life was dead! It was great to see Patrick unleash his fury about Robin’s death and Jason’s indirect role in it each time Sam would give him reasons why he had to save Jason.

Jason Thompson has been amazing as Patrick Drake for the past six years, but this week, and in the weeks to come as Patrick deals with Robin’s death and the aftermath, he will be nothing short of brilliant.

This week has also seen an amazing performance by John J York. Mac’s reaction to Anna telling him about Robin’s death was heartbreaking….just as heartbreaking as he was when Georgie died. This storyline is bringing out the absolute best in Jason, Fiona, and John, and I can hardly wait to see the scenes with Tristan, Rick, Jason Cook, Jen Lilley, and Becky Herbst.

It breaks my heart that Kimberly’s exit was done this way. As a Scrubs fan, I was hoping for some sort of happily ever after, especially after the issue with Robin’s viral load was squared away. I can only say that the bright spot in this storyline…if there is any, is that Jason Thompson, Kimberly McCullough, Finola Hughes, and John J York have shown their not-surprised fans, and the fans of GH, what amazing talents they truly are.

PLEASE PLEASE don’t kill Starr’s daughter Hope off. Starr can still date even if she’s got a child. That should NOT MATTER anyway. Cause it’ll be bad enough if Cole dies. Hope DOES NOT NEED TO DIE!!! She’s a baby!!!! What did she do to deserve getting killed off?!!!
THAT DOES NOT NEED TO HAPPEN!!!! PLEASE let baby Hope LIVE!!!!!
And get Natalie and baby Liam on GH!!! John needs them!!! They need each other!!!
PLEASE!!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin’s World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

Yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured emotional performances by James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) as it looks like a significant shift may be coming for their characters on the Port Charles canvas, or is it?

Valentin has overheard Nina (Cynthia Watros) telling Ava (Maura West) that she kissed Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which further sends him into a tailspin.  He is still reeling from the fact that the DNA results, that he had run, proved that he is not a Cassadine, as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had claimed and revealed.

When Valentin enters Ava’s art gallery, he gets a moment alone with Nina where he tells her he doesn’t know who he is anymore.  Nina tells him he is free now to start over and concentrate on his daughter, Scarlett, but that she will no longer be a part of his life.

You can tell Nina still has feelings for Valentin and cares about him, but is it more? Or, is she now going to move on with Jax? Well, after a pep talk, of sorts, from Ava, looks like she may just go after Jax and see where things may lead with him.

Later, Valentin is drinking and gets his gun and is ready to kill Jax, or so it seems.  He heads out to go confront Jax in his office.  Next, we see Valentin shoot Jax with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) looking on.  However, we soon learn that this scenario was all in Valentin’s mind, as we come back to present time and Jax, Dustin, and Josslyn are all talking and wondering what Valentin wants.  He covers and tells Jax he just came to tell him he wasn’t a Cassadine.  Still later, Lulu is filled in about Valentin.

THE BACHELOR: A Telenovela & Four Contestants Sent Packing

Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) meets up with Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and tells her that he and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are moving away from Port Charles.  He admits to her that he told Lucas before the accident, about baby Wiley being Michael and Nelle’s bio-son.  She is pissed.  Nelle realizes he wants to move Lucas and Wiley away to keep from triggering Lucas’ memory of the car crash.  Later, that prompts Nelle to leave Valentin a message that she is ready to sell her ELQ shares to him as she needs to leave town ASAP.

However, when Nelle places her call, Vakentin does not pick up; instead he is on the floor drunk, and opens a box with the Cassadine ring in it, and lo and behold, we see a woman appear, who by all accounts will be Helena (Constance Towers) since we know Towers is making a visit during February sweeps.  Will Valentin be talking to a dead Helena about the lies perpetrated on him … or is something else going on? Stay tuned for today’s episode.

Elsewhere, Anna is angry that Finn betrayed her with confirming information to Jason (Steve Burton) and his stance on her son Peter’s dirty deeds.. Finn says she’s just so blind to the truth about Peter and he is a dangerous man; after all, Peter kept Jason locked up for years.  Anna says Jason will now retaliate and try to kill Peter.  She is overcome with terror and upset that no one will give Peter the benefit of a doubt.

It’s clear she wants a second chance at being Peter’s mother and can’t see past that. With that, the duo is at a crossroads. Finn goes to get his daughter, Violet and packs a bag and moves of their place and heads to the Metro Court for the night.  He tells Anna he has to protect his daughter.  Of course, when they get to the Metro Court, they run into Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Finn is not happy.   Will Anna and Finn reconcile? Will Peter finally, finally get his comeuppance?
