Jason rescues Sam, only to realize that he played into Franco’s hands by being tricked into having saved Sam at Lulu’s expense.  Lucky accuses Jason of letting Lulu die when it appears as though she and Dominic might not have survived the explosion at the warehouse where she was being held.  To everyone’s relief, Dominic and Lulu stagger out of the rubble unharmed.  Sonny credits Dominic for saving Lulu’s life.  Jason warns Lucky he’s walking into trap as he’s about to enter Franco’s studio.  Franco sends someone a DVD.  Johnny realizes the body found in the wreckage at the warehouse is probably Claudia.  Elizabeth races to stop Nikolas from leaving town, fearing she might never see him again.  Kristina turns to Kiefer after her ordeal with Sonny and they have sex in his car.  After returning home, Kristina tells Alexis there’s no bond between her and her father and there never will be. Sonny warns Michael that Claudia’s body may have been recovered.  Jason knows Franco isn’t through with him yet.  Sonny tears into Jason for letting Franco get under his skin.  Sonny tells Jason and Carly they all need to work together to protect Michael.  Ronnie confesses to Dominic that he and Franco had once been friends.  Michael’s temper flares when Kristina makes disparaging remarks about Sonny.  Lucky confronts Nikolas about being in love with Elizabeth.  Lulu has trouble dealing with her emotions in the aftermath of her near death experience.  Carly attempts to help Lulu but Dominic is the one who gets through to her.  Patrick jumps to Lisa’s defense when Steve reprimands her and ends up clashing with Robin.

Johnny reveals to Dominic he knows Dominic’s an undercover cop but won’t blow his cover because he wants to see him bust Sonny for Claudia’s murder.  After reading the results of Claudia’s autopsy online, Spinelli informs Johnny and Dominic that she died from a blow to the head.  Lucky continues to struggle with his anger over Nikolas’ admission that he’s in love with Elizabeth.  Nikolas asks Elizabeth to give them a chance to have something together and tell Lucky the truth.  Jason remains unsettled by his “duel” with Franco.  Jason tells Sam he has no regrets about choosing to rescue her before Lulu because he loves her.  Lisa privately takes pleasure in watching Robin and Patrick bicker but her smile fades when they go into each other’s arms for a kiss.  Robin leaves for London with Emma to visit Anna.  Jax makes plans to take the family on a ski vacation. Dominic confronts Olivia for not telling him that Johnny knew he’s an undercover cop out to nail Sonny.  Olivia and Johnny grow closer.   Sonny plans on setting the stage to frame Franco for Claudia’s murder.  While at the ski cabin, Michael’s disturbed by memories of the night of the murder.  Sly, a forensics technician tells Mac all they need is a DNA match to the hair sample they found at the cabin to ID Claudia’s killer.  Lulu confronts Elizabeth, implying she must have led Nikolas on in some way.  Steve tries to offer advice to a distraught Elizabeth.  Lisa ends up in Patrick’s arms after taking a tumble while arranging furniture in her apartment.

Michael convinces Carly it would be best if he left the cabin and returned home.  Once back in Port Charles, Michael heads to the morgue with the intention of seeing Claudia’s corpse but is intercepted by Sonny.  Dominic overhears Sonny and Michael talking in the morgue.  Jason is adamantly opposed to Sonny’s plan to implicate Franco for Claudia’s murder.  Nikolas takes Lulu’s advice and decides to leave town, probably forever.  Lucky severs all ties with Nikolas but Lulu convinces him to say goodbye to his brother before he leaves.  Lucky goes to Wyndemere and gets a surprise.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.

GH’s Steve Burton, Laura Wright & Kelly Thiebaud Deliver The ‘Power Performances of the Week’

In a power play to show strength and solidarity against their enemies, a major move by longtime best friends, looks to shake up the canvas of General Hospital for some time to come, and within the framework of the story, three performers took the material they were given and broke our hearts throughout last week’s episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

Steve Burton (Jason) and Laura Wright (Carly) showed us the deep-inner conflict of their characters as after a remark by Ava (Maura West) about marriage being in-part a contract, but also part theater in the life of the mob, the two longtime besties come to a conclusion.

With the territory beginning to ramp up the violence again within the five families, Jason thinks if they got married it’s the best decision for the business with Sonny (Maurice Benard) gone.  He points out there is no going back from this. Then, Carly recalls their history, how they were once together, until she ultimately pushed him away, and Jason reminds her how she tests and tests things until they break, which is why her relationship with Sonny worked so well as a duo, and why with him it did not.  An emotional Carly thinks everyone will think she planned this given her history with Jason.  He assures her that all that is important is that the two of them know why they took this step.

Later in the week, Jason and Carly meet again, and it’s at that moment that Carly realizes she has to take off her wedding rings to Sonny. Jason says she doesn’t have to do that right now if she is not ready.  She bites the bullet and says that it has to be done.  As she removes her wedding rings, she breaks down in tears and notes how much she misses Sonny.

Throughout the week, there was another key player in all of this, Britt.  After admitting how much she is falling for Jason,  she is excited that Jason is coming by her room to see her at the Metro Court.  When he shows up, Britt knows something is up.  Jason tells Britt he is marrying Carly, and that it is the best move to protect the family and the business.  He is overcome delivering this information to Britt, just when things were starting between the two of them.  A devastated Britt tells Jason to get the hell out.  Jason tells her that she matters to him and that he will be there for her.  She cries as she tells him she doesn’t want his pity or support, and she should have known that Carly will always come first. Britt is completely blind-sided and shocked as Jason leaves.

Next, a heartbroken Britt visits Brad (Parry Shen) in Pentonville, where a stunned Brad learns that Britt slept with Jason, and she fills him on how they came together and how it’s now called-off between her and the hit man.  Brad is so sorry Jason hurt her, but then says, “Staying away from Jason probably will add years to her life expectancy.”  Sadly, Brad doesn’t know that Britt has the marker for Huntington’s Disease.

Throughout all of her scenes, Kelly Thiebaud played all the beats to perfection, and who knew we all would care so much for the “Britch”, but we do in the capable hands of this talented actress.

Now let us know, what did you think of the scenes featuring Jason, Carly and Britt, and where the storyline is heading?  What did you think of Steve, Laura, and Kelly’s performances? Let us know in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
