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: Sonny Must Say Goodbye to Mike As Maurice Benard Delivers Heartbreaking Performance

Any of us who has watched their loved one slip further away from Alzheimer’s disease could relate to exactly what Sonny Corinthos (Mauice Benard) was feeling on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.

It is always a tough and horrific decision when families contemplate what to do with (in this case) a parent, and where is the best place for them to live out the remainder of their days.  Sometimes, it’s clear cut and easy, and sometimes it’s difficult.

In the case of Mike Corbin (Max Gail), Sonny and Carly (Laura Wright) gave him a home and safe place to be, but as the disease progressed and as Mike’s reality becomes his own, and has he has been losing more self-control. it becomes apparent that they need to be able to give him the best life they can now.

In story, Griffin (Matt Cohen) points this out to Sonny and Carly when they discuss the progression of the disease on Mike.  It is apparent that Mike wants to go live with, and be with his “girlfriend’ Yvonne at Turning Woods.  Sonny and Carly struggle to come to term with that fact, but know they must let him go.   It is tough for them to put Mike permanently at the care facility.  Sonny thinks he may have been too selfish by keeping Mike with them so long.  Ultimately, he arranges a room for his father at the facility.

Mike comes downstairs after packing his bags, and thanks them for taking him in.  Hey says, that they are nice people, but that Yvonne is waiting for him, so he is moving in with her.  Sonny tells his dad, he has a room at the Corinthos’ home any time he wants it.

In the most touching moment, Carly offers to drive Mike to get to Yvonne faster.  He really appreciates it, and Sonny decides to just let Carly do this alone, because it would be too difficult on him to watch his father check-in and have to leave him behind.

Before he heads out, Mike forgets his gloves and he goes upstairs to look for them.  Sonny decides to check Mike’s suitcase to see if they are in there, and begins to break down.  He sees the framed photo of himself and his father from the Nurses’ Ball last year, and packs it in Mike’s suitcase.  After Carly drives off with Mike, Sonny begins to cry.

We have to give kudos to Maurice Benard in these scenes.  Anyone who has been witness to watching a parent go through this most dreadful disease, could feel his pain.  It was a heartbreaking and raw performance.

So, what did you think of the scenes where Sonny must let his father leave his home and move into the care facility?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And in case you missed some of the scenes, check them out here.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Can’t See & Maxie and Nina Visit Nathan’s Grave

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, a now blind Ryan is freaking out, because as he is in the hospital (while Finn tries to figure out if the same virus that caused Anna’s temporary blindness caused his), he learns that Lulu is in surgery and still fighting for her life.  If she lives, she will name him as the culprit who stabbed her.

When Anna and Finn visit “Kevin”, Anna asks him if he ever worked for the WSB or DVX.  “Kevin” claims he did not.  Anna believes all of this is the handy work of a doctor who worked for the international spy rings.  Finn asks if “Kevin” had been in contact with something that wasn’t his recently, and it is then Ryan flashes to Lulu’s license, realizing he needs to find it and its in his coat pocket.

“Kevin” gets rid of Ava from his room, and attempts to get out of bed to get to his coat and locate Lulu’s driver’s license.  However, since he cannot see, the license goes under the hospital bed, and just as he is trying to grab it, Ava walks back in the room.

Meanwhile at GH. Jordan explains to Laura that the police found a bloody footprint going in the opposite direction from Lulu.  Valentin and Nina tell Charlotte that Lulu is in the hospital, and the little girl insists they go to her now.  Charlotte leaves with Valentin, Nina stays behind.

Elsewhere, Jason is underground trapped in some kind of built out setting to probably nefarious crimes. When Sam goes for help, the fire department shows up.   Sam calls her pal Spinelli!  She asks him to check the maps of pipes and tunnels under the city.  Spinelli reveals that the water system leads out to the harbor at Pier 55.  Jason also finds a small space that he is hoping to swim through to get to the other side of the pier.

Then, in touching scenes, Maxie goes to Nathan’s gravesite and reveals to her beloved late husband that she is getting closer to his brother, Peter.  She also admits she is scared to start a relationship with him.  She asks for a sign from Nathan if it is OK.  As she cries, Peter shows up with a handkerchief to wipe Maxie’s tears.  She admits she doesn’t know how to let go of Nathan and move on.  Peter assures her that Nathan will let her know when it’s time.

Later, Nina shows up and tells the duo about Lulu. They had to GH where Peter is then in question for the crime; being the last person they can substantiate that spoke to Lulu before she was stabbed.  Jordan also reveals to Laura that Lulu’s license is missing from her belongings.

Back at Nathan’s grave, a grieving sister, Nina, shares heartfelt moments with her late brother, missing him, and filling him on the latest in her life and Maxie’s.  One again, Michelle Stafford delivered in these scenes.

Finn shows up with results for “Kevin”.  He tells him the tests shows he has the same virus as Anna and he will need surgery to correct his sudden loss of his eyesight.  Finn also tells “Kevin” this good news: Lulu made it through surgery and will make a full recovery.  Ryan is in trouble and he knows it.

At the end of the episode as Sam makes it over to Pier 55, she spots Jason’s body in the water and jumps in to save him.  We fade to black.

Now, check out the emotional scenes performed by Kirsten Storms and Michelle Stafford below. Then, let us know, do you think Maxie and Peter should move forward with their relationship? How can Ryan get out of the predicament he finds himself in now? Will Lulu come to and identify “Kevin” as her assailant ? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Aiden Continues To Be A Target For Bullies; Oscar Receives His Death Sentence

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, the long-running ABC daytime drama series, is certainly taking a look at some key issues of our time in regards to young children and teens.

When Liz leaves to meet with Willow, about Aiden, Franco and Aiden bake some cookies, where Franco is impressed and surprised to find out how excellent Aiden is in the kitchen and baking assorted kinds of cookies. When Franco asks why Aiden never told anyone that he liked baking so much, Aiden said he just didn’t want to be laughed at again.

At Charlie’s, Liz meets up with Willow. The teacher informs Liz that Aiden still prefers to avoid the other students and may not feel safe around them for a very long time.  Liz questions and ponders why Aiden has a target target on his back. Willow explains how kids can be cruel in an understatement, she adds that Aiden needs to find his true identity.

After Cam’s emotional day surrounding Joss and Oscar, he heads home.  Liz and Cam get their around the same time and are astounded by Aiden’s cookies! Franco tells Liz they just need to let Aiden be Aiden. Then when Cam and Aiden hang out on the couch, and after asking for the password to the iPad, Cameron opens it, and there is a heartbreaking message that reads, “Get Lost Gayden.”   Cam immediately closes it and hugs his little brother.

What happens when you are a teenager who should be living life and having fun with years to look forward to?  That is the other storyline, GH has been taking at look at.  Kim tells Terry that Oscar has questions now that the medical trial has failed, and he needs the truth, no matter how difficult it may be to hear.  On is way to meet with Terry and his mom, Oscar runs into Alexis and tells her he needs to finish his will.  Alexis is heartbroken to hear this news.

Once with Terry and Kim, Oscar asks a few questions about the what to expect as his condition worsens before his death, how to prepare for it, and how long he has to live. Terry explains n some cases headaches get worse, and that he may have difficulty with his balance. Then, Terry delivers the devastating news, he could live as long as 6-7 months … or as little as 6 more weeks.  Oscar is shaken.

Kim hands him a bucket list to-do book and calendar to go to set up all the things he wants to do before he dies.  He heads to meet Josslyn in the hospital chapel, where they pen in things in the book to do together.  Monica and Kim share a moment about losing their children, before they pass away.  Kim does not know what to do next.  She decides to head to the “Charlie’s” to see Julian; while Alexis has already told Julian to help Kim through this tough time, no matter his feelings towards her kissing Drew on New Year’s Eve.

Finally, Griffin removes Anna’s bandages and her eyesight has returned following her surgery.  Finn tells Anna the virus that caused the blindness has never been seen in North America.  Anna wonders if it was given to her while abroad?  Could this be something Cassandra did to her, or something, or someone else?

So, if GH does this story right about Aiden being bullied for his differences, it could definitely send a powerful message to many in the viewing audience and bring attention to young LGBTQ youth who are trying to be their authentic selves, if this is the story.   What do you think of Aiden’s plight now?  What did you think of how Oscar’s death sentence was handled?  Who or what caused Anna’s temporary blindness?  Share your thoughts on these storylines via the comment section below.
