Sonny vows to get answers from Shawn on Brenda’s whereabouts. Dante troubleshoots how the Balkan set up the car bombing. Michael and Morgan return home as Sonny bursts into the guesthouse where Carly is helping Shawn recover. Jason receives a second phone call from Franco indicating his involvement with the car bombing and potentially the Balkan. Theo turns lethal on Suzanne. Brenda wakes to find herself in the Balkan’s clutches. Jason notices something is wrong with Sam – she has lost her hearing. Lulu puts her faith back in Dante. Patrick and Robin work together at the hospital. Alone with Ethan, Kristina discusses her own experience with the car bombing. Luke and Tracy call a brief truce in the wake of Luke’s kindness towards rattled Edward, who is still in shock over the wedding car bombing. Sonny is prepared to torture Shawn for information. Carly and Michael try to talk him down, but Dante finally convinces him not to use mob boss tactics in front of his children. Michael wants to help his father find Brenda in any means, while Dante offers help with legal resources. Jason remains by Sam’s side as she gets tested for permanent hearing loss. Patrick and Robin grow closer given the aftermath of the wedding, and they inch closer to reconciliation when Patrick offers to drive Robin home. Kristina admits her feelings and long-term plans for Ethan. Luke and Sonny lament the downside to having a police officer for a son and not being able to live up to their offspring’s expectations.

Held captive by Theo, Brenda tries to get help but is shocked when Theo interrogates her about his grandchild. Theo evades Suzanne’s probing questions about Brenda’s whereabouts. Shawn barely dodges a Balkan assassin who attacks him at General Hospital. After being questioned by Lucky, Theo tries to make a run for it but is blocked by Jason. The Davis Family converges upon Sam, as they give loving support to her recovery. Kristina witnesses Sam take a turn for the worse. Spurred by Lisa, Terrell presents the perfect reason for Robin to have less free time with Patrick – partner with him on an AIDS grant proposal. Nik works up the courage to admit his feelings to Brook Lynn.  She confesses it is mutual, and they start to combust when Nik storms out. Nik admits to Lucky that he feels obligated to try again with Liz. Brook Lynn and Liz see right through each other’s motives – and it’s a bitch fight call out. Dante urges Sonny not to use his mob boss tactics to find Brenda. Brenda reveals to Theo that Suzanne was present when her child was stillborn. Brenda tries to escape as we realize that the baby may still be alive. Shawn convinces Jason to let him get info on Theo. Molly recognizes Shawn’s hospital attacker, and Michael goes after him only to be held at gunpoint as Dante arrives. Sam makes a full recovery. Sonny asks Lulu to help keep Dante away from the search for Brenda. Kristina grapples with the similarity of Ally’s death to Sam’s collapse. Michael confides in Abby of his conflict between upholding the law and following in the footsteps of his father.

Sonny continues his fear campaign to get a lead on Brenda. While he gets no help from Jax, Dante finds a clever way to cooperate with his mob boss father when they take the Balkan assassin into custody. Dante and Jason warn Michael not to get involved with the criminal world, but Michael feels he is his own man with goals to prove. Carly admits to Jax that she wants her sons to follow in his footsteps – not Sonny’s. Brenda escapes her confines – running desperately into the woods, still in her wedding reception gown. Jason hovers, and the couple shares a romantic time together at the hospital. Looking at photos, Liz wonders again the true paternity of Aiden.

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.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julian & Sonny’s Showdown Ends Tragically; Cyrus Reveals His Past; Curtis & Jordan on the Rocks

Friday’s General Hospital left viewers in a free fall, literally, following the conclusion of the long-awaited final confrontation between arch enemies; Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Julian Jerome (William deVry).

Sonny tracks down Julian to the footbridge with gun in tow. He tells Julian the only way for him to get out of this alive, and for all his crimes, is to help him take down Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) and implicate him as the person behind the bombing a the Floating Rib. Julian says if he talks Cyrus will kill him, anyway.  Sonny says Julian will finally have some redemption if he does the ultimate sacrifice in order to bring down the drug lord.

Next, Julian seems to agree and then collapses, and we are to believe, at that point, that he has died, but when Sonny reaches down to check his pulse, Julian lunges at Sonny! Then a fight ensues and the gun goes off.  We don’t know whether it was Julian or Sonny who was shot.

 

However, it is Sonny who is alive and Julian has been shot dead in the stomach.   Next, Jason (Steve Burton) comes across the two on the footbridge.  As Sonny and Jason see each other, the bridge collapses underneath Sonny and Julian … and they go overboard!  Jason yells “Sonny!”

Back in Port Charles, Curtis (Donnell Turner) is hurt and betrayed by Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry), because she hid the truth from him that Taggert was alive.  She says she is sorry, but she did not want anything to happen to her husband, so she kept him out of the plans and to not let him in on what she was doing to protect Taggert.  Curtis says she never gave him an option and it is not OK about her consistent lies when comes to Taggert and her feud with Cyrus Renault.  There looks to be real trouble in paradise here.

At the long-term care facility in Vermont, Laura (Genie Francis) is an for an earful once Cyrus enters Florence’s room and he and his brother Martin (Michael E. Knight) go at it, reliving old wounds about their father.  Cyrus admits to Laura he figured out she was his half-sister and knew if he fed her bread crumbs she would make it to Vermont and figure it out.

Next, things get heated as we learn Cyrus was the odd man out in his relationship with his father, Gordon Gray.  Martin tells Laura that Cyrus intentionally ran down their father with a car.  Cyrus says it was accident.  in these scenes,  Jeff Kober delivered a top-notch performance revealing not only Cyrus’ inner pain and past, but leaving the audience and Laura still not trusting him and still fearful of him.

This episode seemingly marked the end of William deVry’s run of Julian Jerome who throughout his time in the role gave viewers memorable performances. William showed us the complexities of man caught up in the mob, but who loved his children in his own way, even through countless mistakes, bad decisions, and criminal moves.  And let’s not forget, Julian was one-half of the former fan favorite duo, Julexis with Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis).  Kudos to Will for a job well-done.

So, what did you think of the ending of Friday’s GH?  Will you miss Julian? What do you think will happen next to Sonny? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
