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.

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!

And, Franco (Roger Howarth) just may trip upon the lock box in Kevin’s office, that holds the clues to everyone Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) has murdered!  How does that come about? 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.

When Franco makes his exit, Ryan tells Ava that they should leave Port Charles together and never look back.  Then, Franco breaks in to Kevin’s office at GH, and goes looking for his patient file and that is where we see the lock box.  Will Franco figure out what is going down?
