An eavesdropping Dominic misinterprets Sonny and Michael’s conversation and comes to the wrongful conclusion that Sonny murdered Claudia.  Dominic feels conflicted after witnessing Sonny’s caring paternal side.  Ronnie tells Dominic they now have enough evidence to bring Sonny down.  Sonny’s alerted when Olivia suggests he should leave the country.  Jason continues to blame himself for bringing Franco into everyone’s lives and confides to Sam that Franco promised to kill someone for every person Jason killed, thus making Jason feel unable to do his job.  Spinelli gives Jason the distressing news that the hair the cops found at the cabin belongs to Sonny.  After making love, Nikolas and Elizabeth resolve themselves to the fact that this is their final goodbye.  Devastated over seeing Nikolas and Elizabeth together, Lucky returns home and begins destroying everything in sight.  Patrick makes it perfectly clear to Lisa that he has no intention of being unfaithful to Robin. Lucky clearly has his own private agenda when he convinces Nikolas to stay in town.  Alone at the Haunted star, Lucky begins drinking.  Sonny tells Jason he can no longer trust his judgment as he believes Franco has left Jason too rattled to make the right decisions.  Jason cautions Sonny not to try and implicate Franco in Claudia’s murder for fear he’ll expose the incriminating photos he has of Michael.  Dominic struggles with the idea of using Michael’s testimony to send Sonny to prison.  Johnny warns Lulu and Dominic that Lulu will be facing some serious fallout when people realize she knew Dominic was out to nail Sonny and didn’t say anything.  Dominic forces himself to push Lulu away for her own good.

Dominic and Lulu face a difficult dilemma with both realizing that they probably won’t be able to have a future together once Dominic busts Sonny.  Lulu admits to Maxie that she loves Dominic while he makes the same admission about her to Johnny.  Carly asks Lulu and Jason to be Josslyn’s godparents.  Jason is initially reluctant to have Josslyn drawn closer into his life but Carly refuses to take no for an answer.  Kristina turns to Sam for advice about Kiefer and the conversation leaves Sam slightly troubled for her younger sister.  Patrick and Lisa are reminded of their own past while tending to a young couple who’ve been injured in a car accident.  Edward informs Monica and Tracy he’s going to invite his great granddaughter Maya Ward and her half-sister Zoe to move in with them because they’re in financial straits.  Michael goes ballistic when he learns Sonny wants to turn the business over to Dominic when he decides to retire.  Michael accuses Dominic of trying to take what he believes is rightfully his and vows to bring him down.  Lucky alerts Jason to the fact he’s removing himself from Claudia’s murder investigation and warns him that Maxie saw Sonny the night Claudia disappeared.  Jason realizes he needs to make sure Maxie doesn’t say anything that could jeopardize Michael.  Lucky unrepentantly admits to Lulu that he’s drinking again.  Lulu tells Nikolas and Elizabeth about Lucky’s drinking and thinks it’s because of Nikolas’ feelings for Elizabeth.  Carly invites the Quartermaines to Josslyn’s christening. Michael remains hurt and angry over his belief that Sonny is choosing Dominic over him. Michael overhears a conversation between Johnny and Dominic.  Jason asks Maxie to lie and not tell the cops she saw Michael with Sonny the night Claudia disappeared and she agrees to do so.  Lucky apologizes to Luke.  Luke admits to Tracy he’s afraid Lucky is turning out to be just like him.  Lucky confronts Nikolas and Elizabeth about sleeping together.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Learns The Truth, Finn Is Reeling, Mike is Too Hard To Handle, Julian Sets A Trap

On Thanksgiving day, General Hospital aired a brand new episode … and it was chocked-full of cliffhangers that will have fans waiting on the edge of their seats till next Monday, when the next new installment of the ABC daytime drama series airs.

In story, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) who is now uber-suspicious of Kendra (Michelle Argyris), receives a visit from her as she is preparing to leave GH and go home after being poisoned. Kendra offers to bring Alexis more supplements, but Alexis tell her she will contact the distributor herself.  Kendra says the distributor only speaks Italian, and Alexis counters that she also speaks Italian.  At that point, Kendra’s plan may have gone up in smoke.  Later, Alexis has checked out of the hospital  on her own.  Neil (Joe Flanigan) is concerned for her, and bumps into Julian (Willam deVry) and it is Julian who says he saw Kendra with the supplement jar retrieving it from the garbage.  The two men look concerned.

Next, we see Kendra visiting her brother, Kiefer’s grave where she places flowers on it, and tells him she promises to make Alexis pay for killing him.  However, Alexis has followed her to the gravesite.  Once Kendra walks away, Alexis goes to the grave, lifts up the flowers and is shocked when she sees Kiefer’s name on the headstone.  Then from behind, Kendra smashes Alexis in the head with a rock.

Julian is ready to snuff Brad (Parry Shen) out of his and his son, Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) life once and for all, and he cuts a wire in Brad’s car.  Problem is, everyone assumed Lucas would be working on Thanksgiving at the hospital.  So first, Brad lets Michael (Chad Duelle) take Wiley to the Corinthos family Thanksgiving,  and tells Michael he does not want to attend, because of Carly (Laura Wright) and the family’s issue with him visiting Nelle (Chloe Lanier) in prison.  Next, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) tells Lucas to go home – that she got his shift covered by Terry.  Lucas goes home to confront Brad.  He tells his husband, to please tell him what he is keeping from him.

At the Corinthos home, Mike (Max Gail) comes to Thanksgiving dinner from Turning Woods.  When he comes inside he is confused, wondering when his own parents are coming.  Carly tells him that his parents left him with them to take care of him for Thanksgiving.  Later, Mike is holding baby Donna, which scares Michael, Carly and Sonny (Maurice Benard).  When Carly is able to get the baby in to her hands, Mike loses his temper and gets upset and pushes Sonny right into the Thanksgiving food, which falls to the floor.  Sonny can’t seem to calm Mike down and tells Carly he needs to take his father back to Turning Woods where they can take care of him. Sonny is devastated.

At Anna’s (Finola Hughes), Finn (Michael Easton) comes upon the letter Hayden wrote for him, when Violet asks for her doll, which is inside her bag.  Alone, Finn opens the letter and is heartbroken, and shook, when he reads that Hayden is in serious trouble and had to leave town to protect Violet. She tells Finn she knows he will take good care of their daughter.  Finn is reduced to tears, trying to cope with what is in front of him.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Needs Fatherly Advice From Tony As Ryan Carnes and Brad Maule Deliver Tender Scenes

Friday’s highly-touted episode of ABC;s General Hospital featured the return of Brad Maule in the role of Dr. Tony Jones, the adoptive father of Lucas(Ryan Carnes) and former husband to Bobbie (Jackie Zeman).

It has been years since fan favorite Maule graced the GH screens, but the writers found a way to conjure him up in Lucas’ mind as Lucas is in a pivotal moment in his life; his bio-dad Julian Jerome (William deVry) is blackmailing his husband, Brad (Parry Shen), and Brad is keeping secrets from Lucas.  All spell bad news to Lucas for raising his son, Wiley.  But as GH fans know, Wiley is not the baby that Lucas thinks he is raising with Brad- he is actually raising Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) child, which Brad knows!

So, needing some clarity and visiting his adoptive dad’s gravesite, Lucas sees the vision of Tony, and the former father and son have a heart to heart.  Tony tells Lucas how raising him as  little boy gave him the strength and courage to go on through the hard times, and how to be their for his little boy.  Lucas is just emotionally overwrought and so burdened by the lies those who say that they supposedly love him have been telling.

At the same time, Julian is searching for Lucas, and happens upon Bobbie at the hospital. She really does not like Julian and the two land at the GH hospital wall where plaques of the beloved doctors and nurses who have passed away are seen.  Bobbie knows Julian could never be the kind of father, Tony was to Lucas.  Julian says he can never replace Tony, but he is Lucas’ father and wants to somehow do right by him.

Later alone, Bobbie talks to Tony’s photo and we see a heartfelt moment where Tony touches Bobbie’s hand and touches her on the cheek. Something Bobbie feels as she remembers this once great love of hers. At the end of the episode Julian finds Lucas at Tony’s gravesite. What will their confrontation bring?

Kudos to Ryan Carnes, who was the emotional heart of this episode and who made us feel every moment of Lucas’s anguish. And … how wonderful to see Brad Maule again!

So, what did you think of Tony’s visit to Lucas and Bobbie on Friday’s GH? Comment below. But first watch some key scenes between them.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Checks Into Shadybrook, While Laura Is Unconvinced That Nikolas Is Alive

For months now, viewers have seen the downward spiral of Ava Jerome (Maura West).  It began following the death of her daughter Kiki, and realizing the man she fell in love with was not her therapist, Dr Kevin Collins, but none other than his serial killer twin brother, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) – the man that murdered her daughter.

Trying to get back on her feet has been difficult for Ava.  She finally found some purpose in going back to work at the art gallery she loved so much.  Along the way, she has been sipping one too many martinis.  So, if you add all that up, and if you are other denizens in Port Charles, you might think that when Ava professes she saw the real Nikolas Mikhail Stavrosovich Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) in the flesh, when the man supposedly died a few years ago, then she has really lost it!

Thing is – Ava did see Nikolas, and he is back in Port Charles, alive and well, only know else knows except for Hayden  (Rebecca Budig) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which we learned at the end of Friday’s episode.

Earlier, after Ava passed out seeing Nikolas, she comes too, and he is not at the gallery anymore.  She panics and looks everywhere for him. Ava is convinced there has to be security camera footage of him in the gallery.  Nikolas’ mother, Laura (Genie Francis) happens to head over to see Ava to discuss Helena’s portrait, which has been the key to the codicil mystery, which is now at Ava’s gallery,

When Laura arrives, she finds Ava with drink in hand, and professing to her that Laura’s first-born son Nikolas is alive and he was just here at the gallery! As she tries to produce the physical evidence to show Laura, it’s not there.   Ava questions her sanity after Laura suggests she really needs professional help; something Laura knows a thing or two about

What happens next is shocking:  Julian (William deVry) is called and he meets Ava and Laura at Shadybrook sanitarium.  Viewers watch as Ava takes off all of her jewelry and her high heels. She hugs Julian and Laura before leaving them behind to get the help she “needs”.

Kudos to Genie Francis and Maura West, who’s unlikely on-screen friendship as Laura and Ava has been a delight to watch; especially when these two powerhouse actresses share two-person scenes together.

Watching Francis’ facial expression when Laura entertains for a moment that her son could be alive and then feels sorrow was masterful, as was West when as Ava she leans on Laura realizing she is in a worse way than she even imagined.  Will Ava get out of Shadybrook soon?  Will Laura get to feel joy that her son is truly alive and in Port Charles? Stay tuned.
