Instead of short-term vindication, Carly opts for her information bomb to come out publicly – at the wedding. Jason tries to call off the wedding since the Balkan is not dead, but Brenda and Sonny push plans forward. Brenda and Dante continue to discuss the civil case with Theo. The Balkan discovers how his son Aleksander died – and exactly who is responsible. He squeezes his leverage to exert further force on our traitor. Abby is intercepted by Brandon, who solicits her and taunts her for the recent prostitution bust – just as Carly walks by overhearing. Carly again challenges Abby to do the right thing and stay away from Michael. Abby tells Michael she is in fact a hooker (a lie) in hopes he will stay away for his own good, and Carly confronts Sam for introducing Michael to a stripper. Sam discusses the fertility procedure with Dr. Kelli Lee. Johnny warns Lisa that Patrick is onto her regarding the syringe. Lucky is blindsided by Siobhan’s break up wish and demands an explanation. Theo inadvertently stuns Lulu, informing her of Brenda and Dante’s murder cover-up in 2007.  Furious at his lies, Lulu breaks up with Dante. Jason comes to Sam’s defense as Carly rips into the genesis of Michael and Abby. Michael lashes out at Carly.  Jason counsels him, as Michael struggles to talk about his past. Jason asks Abby to be honest with Michael. Molly has a nightmare than an emotional hissy fit, shocking Kristina with behavior so unlike her. Steve checks on Olivia’s recovery, with a hint of romance. Nik and Brook Lynn continue to grow closer.

Sonny awakens again from the nightmare premonition of the wedding day, leveling a gun at startled Brenda. Lulu feels cursed with the Spencer prophecy: doomed to lose love. Michael discovers Dante a mess at home. Dante tries to convince Lulu of his love, but she no longer trusts him. Brenda and Robin gossip together about Terrell and the upcoming wedding plans. The Balkan makes plans to kidnap Brenda on her wedding day. Sonny agrees to bring on Claire to help Theo defend the civil suit. Unaware of the recent development, Molly questions Sam on her reason to not have kids. Terrell makes inroads with Robin when he volunteers to help the understaffed AIDS wing. Thinking she is suffering from bi-polar disorder, Molly investigates the illness online and then resolves to see Uncle Sonny. Nik and Brook Lynn share their first kiss. But later, Liz throws down against Brook Lynn, using Aiden as bait. Brenda blames herself for Dante and Lulu’s break up, and she resolves to make things right. Lulu tries to distract herself with work, but is shocked when Brenda arrives to convince her to take Dante back. Diane brings Carly legal proof that Brenda and Dante had a baby together, just as Dante catches them in conversation. Obviously tweaked by Terrell’s attention on Robin, Patrick tries to hide his jealousy as Lisa revels in. Patrick finds Lisa and Terrell enjoying drinks together. Sonny and Molly discuss bi-polar disorder.  Leaving the office, Molly has a PTSD attack as she is overwhelmed by the sounds of a local road car accident. Lucky confronts Siobhan, demanding to discuss the abrupt ending of their relationship.  He remains concerned for her safety.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Goes Blind … What Is The Cause? Franco Is Kicked To The Curb As “Kevin’s” Patient

Viewers of ABC’s General Hospital were in for a twist on Friday’s episode, when Anna Devane suddenly and inexplicably goes blind!  It is a terrifying moment for Anna and throughout the first part of this new arc, played beautifully by Finola Hughes.

But what is the cause of her sudden blindness? After Anna is brought to ‘General Hospital’ by her son, Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Finn (Michael Easton) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) are there to try to calm her down and to try to figure out what is wrong with her, Griffin runs some tests.

Meanwhile, Griffin and Finn get into a tiff over Griffin’s lack of bedside manner and his losing his faith. Griffin says its all now about the data, as he is still reeling from Kiki’s murder.

Later, Griffin reveals to Finn and Anna that the tests show that she has experienced a vitreous hemorrhage.  However, he doesn’t know what caused this … or if her vision can be restored.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH co-head writer, Shelly Altman previews of this story for Anna, “What has happened to Anna will lead us to uncover a mystery that affects not only Anna, but several surprisingly unrelated people.”

Meanwhile, Peter meets up with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) at Kelly’s and tells him what happened to Anna and that she suddenly went blind, but to stay away from his mother.. He also has a warning for Valentin, that whatever Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) has on him will come back to bite him sooner than later, and we all know that Valentin hired Sasha to pose as Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) long-lost daughter, and Obrecht knows it!

After, Franco runs into a gun-toting Ava (Maura West) on the pier, “Kevin” shows up.  He tells Franco he can no longer be his doctor and he will refer him to someone else.  Franco does not want to end his therapy with Dr. Collins, but it’s of no use in changing “Kevin’s” mind.
