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!!!

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part One: Nina’s Red Carpet Arrival Commentary And Locking Eyes With Jax

On Friday’s first installment of the 2019 GH Nurses’ Ball episodes, it was red carpet time in Port Charles as all of the most famous and infamous residents got dressed to the nines and to impress.

This year, Nina Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) is back for her on-camera hosting duties covering the arrivals on the live-stream, but is joined by Crimson’s New York fashion editor, Sydney Val Jean played by guest star Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy.  And as you’d expect, these two fashionistas battle it out at times on the carpet for attention.

Throughout the arrivals, and through this episode, this one really belonged to the talents of Michelle Stafford, who through her comedic, romantic, and dramatic timing, made for some of the best moments.  In a surprise, when Nina begins to choke after interviewing Peter (Wes Ramsey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan),  she excuses herself and ends up outside where Jax (Ingo Rademacher) appears and offers her some champagne.  The two seem to be clearly smitten with each other! Nina accepts his drink, and thanks him, and then goes back inside to her hosting gig, while Jax looks very intrigued by Nina.  Previously, Nina gave a major kiss to Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) when he appeared on the red carpet.

Some of the more shocking …. or interesting red carpet arrivals included: Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) showing up with Sam (Kelly Monaco) on his arm, and then getting into words with Sonny (Maurice Benard), who tells the cult leader that family means everything to him and that there is nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he loves.  Shiloh is convinced Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) will come back to “Dawn of Day”.

When Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) stroll down the red carpet, they get distracted when a dapper Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) shows up, clearly intent on wooing back Anna, to which Anna looks caught by her feelings for both men while Finn is pissed at the game’s Robert is playing.  Later, Finn confronts Robert about his ring.

Everyone was shocked when Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) showed up arm and arm with Ava Jerome (Maura West).  We later learn that this is an attempt to smoke out Ryan, who Ava believes will show his face at the ball.   Lucy (Lynn Herring), the hostess with the mostess, comes up with a plan to get Kevin away from Ava, not knowing they are not romantically together and tries to, perhaps, rekindle their romance up in a Metro Court hotel room.  Meanwhile, Scott (Kin Shriner) wants to get Ava away from Kevin, so he heads up to Lucy’s room with Ava to show her and to catch Kevin and Lucy together, but we don’t know what they saw when the door opened!

Meanwhile in Toronto, Canada, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Laura (Genie Francis) come to realizing they have been tied up and there is a gas leak in the cabin.  Laura realizes Ryan is trying to kill her in an explosion just as he was supposed to have perished in at the fun house years ago.  It appears Ryan set a trap for Laura and Curtis and fled the scene.  The two extricate themselves before running from the cabin just as it blows up!

Back at the ball other notable couples have arrived from: Chase (Josh Swickard) and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), to Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha (Sofia Mattson), to Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), to the GH nurses crew.

The episode ends with an announcer telling all the guests to take their seats as its just about showtime!  And of note:  Is the opening title sequence music changed to a new theme for GH, or is it just for the Nurses’ Ball episodes? That’s one of the buzziest questions today.

So, what did you think of the red carpet arrivals?  Michelle Stafford’s performance?  Jax meeting Nina? What do you think will happen next with Ryan?  Comment below

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Oscar’s Memorial Brings With It Remembrances By Those Who Loved Him

On Monday’s emotional episode of General Hospital, Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) summoned family, friends, and loved ones to honor Oscar Nero (Garren Stitt), since he just past away due to his battle with brain cancer.  Oscar had his own way he wanted everyone to mourn his death and Ned and Olivia carried out his wishes.

When everyone gathers together, Ned and Olivia announce that Oscar wanted this to be a celebration.  After everyone arrives they sit picnic-style and some get up to speak to remember the amazing young man that Oscar was.  It turns out to be Michael (Chad Duell) who starts the tribute by saying that Oscar was brave to date his intimidating sister.  Next, Cameron (William Lipton) touches on his journey to friendship with Oscar.  Joss (Eden McCoy) finds the courage to go next and remembers how she had a crush on Oscar and how he wasn’t easy to talk to but how she was intrigued because he was mysterious. She then tells show she eventually fell in love with Oscar, and how she will never forget him.  When Drew (Billy Miller) gets up next, he breaks everyone’s heart by stating that he will be eternally grateful to have known his son and will always carry him in his heart.

Next, Ned asks everyone to follow him to the meadow.  Once there, Ned and Olivia hand out seeds to the attendees.  Then, Ned and Olivia reveal a plaque dedicated to Oscar, as everyone throw up seeds that land in the grass for it to grow.

Finally, Kim (Tamara Braun) speaks. She talks about how she raised Oscar on her own, and how after she learned he was sick, she brought him to Port Charles so he could meet his true family.  And with the analogy of the seeds, she says it helped Oscar blossom and how it enriched his young life.  In a heartbreaking moment, she thanks Drew for giving her son courage and being his dad when he needed it, and to Joss for being her son’s first love.  Kim hopes that Joss will come back to the meadow often and think of him.  They share an emotional hug.

Later, after Drew thanks Ned and Olivia for putting this all together for his son, Sam (Kelly Monaco) finds him and tells him he was a great father … and is a great father.  He wants to make sure that Scout knows he loves her.

Back at the meadow, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds Kim in tears alone at Oscar’s plaque. He tells her he understands the deep pain and void she is going through, but she has to hold on to how Oscar touched so many lives.   Once Sonny leaves, Kim in tears looks up to the sky and says she’ll always love her baby boy.

The episode featured touching performances by Tamara Braun, Billy Miller, Eden McCoy, and William Lipton, who all carried the Oscar dying storyline so beautifully along with Garren Sttit.  Additional kudos go to Lisa LoCicero and Wally Kurth, who as Olivia and Ned, kept Oscar’s memorial moving forward, and were also emotional throughout.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Oscar Dies Leaving His Family And His Girlfriend Grief-Stricken

In two emotional episodes of General Hospital, Oscar’s battle with brain cancer came to a devastating conclusion, when he passed away at the end of Wednesday’s episode and the aftermath played out on Thursday’s installment of the ABC daytime drama series.

The episodes provided heartbreaking material to play for Tamara Braun (Kim), Garren Stitt (Oscar), Billy Miller (Drew), Eden McCoy (Josslyn), William Lipton (Cameron), Leslie Charleson (Monica), Wally Kurth (Ned) and more.  When it comes to deep and moving moments that pull at the heartstrings and when directed by ace, William Ludel, it’s GH at its best.

On Wednesday’s episode, Oscar looks back at this life, and gets premonitions of what is ahead for his loved ones, as Lila Quartermaine comes to take him to heaven and to be with other members of the Quartermaine family.  In the final moments of the episode, Oscar looks out the window at Charlie’s, and has a vision of Sonny and Carly with their new baby. He sees Olivia promising to take Monica to the tropics.  He turns and sees Kim showing off her engagement ring between Julian (William deVty) and Drew, which means none of the viewers know which guy actually ends up her fiancé.  Sadly, Oscar sees Josslyn with a new young man hand and hand as they are graduating.  Oscar tells Josslyn he can’t leave everyone in limbo and needs to move on.  Lily and Edward pass by him.  Then, when Joss wakes up in Oscar’s room after she had fallen asleep reading him a book, she looks over and sees Oscar, and he has died.   We see his body leaving him, and going with Lila and Edward.

On Thursday, Joss calls out Oscar’s name and goes to the bed to touch him but he is cold.  Kim and Drew rush in and Kim rushes to be next to her son and cradles him knowing it is the end.  Joss runs down the stairs and sits at the stairwell, as Monica and Ned come in.  Ned consoles Joss, while Monica goes to be with Drew upstairs.  Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) learns  that Oscar has passed, and she wants to be the one to tell Cameron.  When she and Franco (Roger Howarth) tell Cam what happened, he says that he and Oscar weren’t close and that Oscar was more Josslyn’s friend.  Liz is worried by his reaction, but he insists he’s fine.  Cam heads to the hospital stairwell where he breaks down.

In a heartbreaking moment, Ned finds a devastated Drew at the bottom of the stairs and tells Drew that Oscar was lucky enough to have him as a father.  In another five-hankie moment, Ned hands over to Joss, a copy of Oscar’s finished song that she and Oscar had been working on for the Nurses’ Ball.  He tells her that Oscar asked him to help him finish it.  When Carly (Laura Wright) arrives she finds Joss who holds on dearly to her mother.  In another major moment, Drew sits by Oscar’s bedside and tells his son, that he is a better man now because of him.

Jason (Steve Burton) shows up to the Q’a when he learns of Oscar’s death. Drew announces to everybody that Oscar wanted to use part of his inheritance to start a fund to help teenagers apply for grants so they can go mountain climbing in Kilimanjaro.  Jason set it up at the request of Oscar.

When they come to take Oscar’s body, Joss wants to spend some time alone with him, where she tells him she wants him to go somewhere that doesn’t hurt. She says she heard him say she loved her before he died, and she loves him too, and will love him forever.  Joss texts Cameron about Oscar, but Cam is too upset to reply back to her.

Then, as the heartbreaking episode concluded, we watch a mother and father lay their son on a gurney to be wheeled out by the coroners.  Michael (Chad Duell) has shown up to be there for Joss and hug her.  Each section of the family holds each other tight and in despair as Oscar is gone.

There were wonderful performances throughout these episodes from:  Billy Miller, Tamara Braun, Eden McCoy, William Lipton and Garren Stitt who brought this difficult story to life.

So, what did you think of the episodes surrounding Oscar’s death? Did you need the tissues for this one?  Comment below.
