Michael wards off Abby’s attacker before he can rape her.  Dante convinces Jason not to cover up the crime to allow for Michael’s psychological healing as a hero. Michael breaks down and admits to Jason what really happened at Pentonville. Alexis discovers that Jax went to London to play “hero” for Brenda.  Brenda twists the knife by telling Carly, and Carly asks Jax for a divorce. Robin supports Brenda in overcoming Carly’s threats to ruin her wedding. Siobhan falls for Lucky’s trap – and Lucky catches her red-handed.  But Siobhan reveals why she is working for the Balkan, and what he holds over her as Lucky turns to Theo for answers. Lulu unknowingly faces the wrath of the Balkan.

Carly is floored when Michael tells her the truth of what happened in prison.  Michael agrees to seek professional help after discussing with Jason and Carly. Brenda admits the truth about the baby (and its whereabouts) to Dante. Maxie convinces Lulu to talk reconciliation with Dante – only to find Brenda in Dante’s arms. Believing Siobhan, Lucky sets a plan of entrapment to outwit the Balkan.  But of course, the Balkan sets a counter trap.

Michael and Abby share gratitude for one another as she heals in the hospital. Michael reveals the truth about his prison experience to Dante, setting his brother reeling with guilt and despair. Carly points a gun at Dante – she wants him to pay for what he did to Michael. Brenda is sick of secrets and threatens to come clean with Sonny.  Suzanne seems to know more about Brenda’s baby then she has let on. Brenda and Carly throw down and Brenda is poised to tell Jason about the baby. Jason and Dante are hesitant to trust Siobhan as much as Lucky does. Siobhan is in a sticky position when Molly inadvertently comes to the rescue. Lisa lets her cool façade slip when Terrell fails to make more headway with Robin. Nik gets jealous when a business partner shows interest in Brook Lynn. Dante blames himself for what happened to Michael.  Even though his brother forgives him, Dante considers resigning from the PCPD, but Lulu tells Dante he would be a fool to quit. Michael takes Abby to the Metro court to rest and relax after the attack, and they find themselves in a romantic but confusing moment. Before Brenda can tell the truth, Sonny arrives and reassures her that nothing will stand in the way of their wedding.  They go to their woodland dream house and make love. But Sonny has his nightmare premonition of their wedding day again – and awakens to find Brenda gone. When Lucky’s trap goes awry, he arrests Siobhan. Lisa sabotages Robin and Patrick’s plans to attend an AIDS benefit. Steve gets suspicious of Lisa’s odd behavior.

Carly tells Sonny the truth about Michael. Michael implores Jason not to tell his father – only to discover that Sonny already knows. Lucky makes plans to head to Ireland, but Jason tries to stop him. Brenda discovers that her wedding dress has been torn to shreds. Sam commiserates with Maxie about the road she did not take, admitting she has been thinking about having Jason’s child. Sam becomes nauseous and dizzy – and Maxie thinks Sam may be pregnant. Luke returns home only to witness Tracy getting arrested for Luke’s gem stash.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Marcus Learns He’s Not Trina’s Biological Father

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Trina (Tabyana Ali) opened the DNA test results that would conclude who is her actual bio-dad. Would it be the man who raised her, Taggert (Réal Andrews) or, the man she more recently has come to know, Curtis (Donnell Turner)?

At GH, Marcus, Curtis and Portia (Brook Kerr) gather to learn the results.  It turns out that Curtis is Trina’s biological father, not Marcus.

However, are these results, correct? Are DNA results ever correct on soaps? Did Selina Wu (Lydia Look) have something to do with switching these in favor of Curtis? Are we digging into this too much?

After the revelation, Trina tells Curtis. they will need to take some time need to figure out their relationship.  Trina makes it clear she’s not looking for a replacement father, and hopes he can understand and accept that.  Curtis promises he will let Trina take the lead on things.

Meanwhile, Taggert, who promised Trina no matter what happens that nothing will change between them, decides to take off and breaks down in the elevator.  Marcus is devastated and in tears, and is left using the elevator as a punching bag for his fists.

You can watch the final moments of the scene, featuring a heart-tugging performance by Réal Andrews below.

Now let us know, are you glad Trina’s bio-dad turned out to be Curtis and not Marcus … or were you hoping it would turn out the other way around? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Trina Leaps Into Spencer’s Arms, Valentin Says ‘Goodbye’ to Victor

After Monday’s episode of General Hospital aired, soap twitter was abuzz with the climatic final moment before its end.

For Sprina fans, it was a ‘must-see’ moment, cementing the already popular duo into the history of young supercouples on the long-running daytime drama series, currently celebrating its 60th year on TV.  Of course, we are referring to when Trina (Tabyana Ali) leaps into a very much alive Spencer Cassadine’s (Nicholas Chavez) arms and they passionately kiss.

How did we get there? Let’s recap. Following the drone attack of the Haunted Star and its wreckage, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) informs Trina they need to return to Port Charles.  She is not going anywhere without Spencer. Trina tells Valentin and herself, she knows Spencer is alive, and she can feel it in her heart and soul. Cue a montage of the relationship between Spencer and Trina.  Meanwhile, Valentin attempts to get her to take Ace back to his mother, Esme.

The agent tells the two that they have recovered a body. Fearing the worst, the two head to check out the body bag.  When they unzip it, Trina is overjoyed and relieved that it’s Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) not Spencer.

Next, Valentin remains in the room with his dead father. He wonders what he’s supposed to say.  He says he’s grateful that Victor stayed away from him most of his life. Defiantly, Valentin promises to make sure future generations of Cassadines are proud of their name. Before he leaves, Valentin is happy to say, “Goodbye father.”

As they are led to the departing plane, Trina with Ace in tow, Valentin, and Laura (Genie Francis) are somber. But all of a sudden, a hand is seen behind the rocks, and Trina catches it.  She cries out, “Spencer!”  Then, Laura gasps in joy, and finally, Trina leaps and runs into Spencer’s arms and all is well for Sprina, for now.

What did you think about the final moment of the episode? Victor’s death? Share your thoughts in the comment section below, but first watch the scene and make sure to check out our latest interview with Nicholas Chavez here.

General Hospital’s James Patrick Stuart Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Last week, was not a good one for GH’s Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart).  His father, Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy) made him a guinea pig for his insane science project by having Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) inject him with the pathogen, while blackmailing his son for answers (to if he came alone to Greenland, or not) if he wants the antidote to save his life.

Strapped to a chair, Victor and Liesl watch the virus take a hold of Valentin as blood drips from his nose. Victor yells at Valentin that he can end his torture at any moment by talking and admitting who his companions are.

Cue James Patrick Stuart to delivering the gut-wrenching drama in the next series of scenes which has earned him Michael Fairman TV’s pick for the Power Performance of the Week.

As the pathogen is rendering Valentin delirious and messing with his vision, he believes he is seeing his mother, Helena Cassadine (in a return from Constance Towers).  Valentin begs his mother to help him.  However, Helena laughs and reveals she is not there to save him but to drag him down to hell with her.  Fighting her, Valentin spouts he is not going anywhere, let alone with her.

Helena continues her torment telling her son that everyone he loves will be better out without him, which crushes Valentin. Next, Helena tells him not to fight the pathogen as soon it will be all over.  Suddenly when he looks up, Valentin sees Anna (Finola Hughes) through the observation room window.

Delusional and thinking he is not really seeing her, Valentin cries out that it’s not Anna, as she fights to make him believe it is.  When Anna finally makes her way into the observation room to be by his side, Valentin is worried that she will become infected with the virus. Next, the scenes between Finola Hughes and Stuart were just so heart-tugging, honest and raw. The two discuss their flaws, their bad sides, their history and why they are drawn to one another, and more.

Throughout all the scenes and in these harrowing moments in the life of Valentin Cassadine, his portrayer, James Patrick Stuart, brought the intensity, the suffering, and the confusion while exposing the emotional root of his character flawlessly.

So, what do you think of our pick for James Patrick Stuart as this week’s ‘Power Performance’? Share your thoughts on the scenes via the comment section below.
