Sonny and Brenda’s romantic evening is interrupted when Carly arrives with news that Jax plans to call Michael and Morgan to the stand at the custody trial. Sonny turns on Brenda when she tries to defend Jax. Working at the brothel gives Lulu a psychological window into Luke’s motivations, but Dante is concerned that she is just hurting herself. Lulu is about to leave the brothel when Luke calls Javier. Spinelli, believing he is the fictional Jackal, P.I., nearly goads Sonny into losing it, but Maxie diffuses the situation and assures Sonny that Spinelli will get Sonny back his frozen $20M. Later, Jackal, P.I. puts the moves on Maxie, then vows to settle the score after Anthony Zacchara roughs him up. Anthony threatens Kristina – but Ethan comes to her rescue to her romantic delight.

Later, Abby offers to pretend to be dating Ethan behind Michael’s back as a way to convince Kristina that she and Ethan are only friends. Edward loosely threatens Carly as he tries to reclaim Michael as the ELQ heir. While Jax warns Shawn he will be eviscerated on the stand, Carly confides in Jason that she never wants to marry again now that Jax has shown his true colors in winning custody of Josslyn. Carly screws up big time when she loses her temper in front of the court-appointed mediator, to Jax’s delight. Anthony reveals his plan to kill Brenda to destroy Sonny and “make him bleed.” Liz confesses to Siobhan that her error almost resulted in Siobhan’s death. Meanwhile, Patrick, Robin, Matt and Steve prepare for questioning from the board on Liz’s competence. Jason and Sam continue dodging the topic of getting married as they discuss what is happening to Carly and Jax’s marriage and family. Blindsided by Abby and Ethan’s purposeful flirting, Kristina vents to Michael and remains ever more determined to win Ethan. Meanwhile, Ethan warns Johnny to keep his father away from Kristina and admits he cares for her.

Sonny bursts in on Carly, Jax and Eileen (the mediator), only making Jax’s point clearer that Josslyn is in danger. Sonny threatens Jax. As ordered by Anthony, Brenda and Alec come under gunfire. Carly begs Jason not to escalate a mob war since it would threaten custody of Josslyn. Meanwhile, Sonny asks Brenda not to discuss what happened at the custody hearing. Alexis feels ambivalent about Jax’s case and her involvement and resigns. Sam protests too much against marriage as both Jason and Sam try to figure out each other’s feelings on the topic.

In judge’s chambers, the mediator makes an important decision for Josslyn. Brenda testifies that she and Alec have experienced physical mob violence since she married Sonny. Siobhan levels Liz with a hospital malpractice suit – claiming she purposefully tried to kill her so Lucky would be available. Meanwhile, Lucky returns from a camping trip with Cam and Aiden. Later, Liz asks Lucky for help with Siobhan. Steve resigns as chief of staff with a surprising decision of who will replace him.

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.

General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Leave it to a beloved MVP of General Hospital, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), to pull out all the stops in the culmination of Maxie’s storyline with Peter August (Wes Ramsey), and that’s what viewers witnessed this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Maxie manipulated the manipulator during a stunning sequence of events.  In story, while recovering at General Hospital after giving birth in the woods, Maxie lays it on thick to ensure that Peter never gets near their baby Louise – who is actually being passed off as “Bailey”, the baby of Valentin and Brook Lynn – not kidnapped by the naughty nurse, Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown).  But in Maxie’s chain of events to Peter, she tears into him and tells him that Chloe kidnapped her, drugged her to induce labor, and took off with Louise.  Peter is stunned.  Maxie goes on to explain that Chloe said she was working for him and that Peter planned to take her and the baby out of the country,

At that point, Maxie plays on Peter’s psyche, telling him she wishes the dark side of him would return to get the nurse for what she did.  It is then she gets Peter right where she wants him when he admits that Chloe isn’t the nurse’s real name.   Maxie then turns up the heat on Peter and reveals that Chloe must have been fed information on her from Peter! And that the only explanation is that Peter is horrible person.

Then, Maxie tells Peter their baby is gone, it’s all his fault, and he hopes he is terrified, and that she is repulsed by him, especially every time he touched her.  She then confronts him about killing Drew Cain, Franco Baldwin and anyone else who got in his way.   He says it’s not too late for them, and that he did it all for her and Louise.

Boom! Maxie has got Peter’s confession taped on a file on her phone which she immediately sends to Mac.  That sends Peter running and well, we know, or we think we know where that led, to Peter’s fall down the stairs thanks to Finn (Michael Easton).

Later when Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives at GH with baby Louise, she sits outside Maxie’s room as emotional Maxie sees her daughter in the arms of another mother, and is heartbroken that she can’t be with the little girl she just gave birth to.

Over the last three episodes. Kirsten Storms has reminded us all of why she has the innate ability and combination to play strong, determined, vulnerable, loveable and devastated with such ease.  Storms gave us a bravura performance to remember, slicing Peter’s charade in half, playing beats of Maxie’s fictionalized account, with Maxie’s real account of life with Henrik Faison aka Peter.   For all of this and more, Michael Fairman TV names Kirsten Storms work, The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Kirsten in the pivotal scenes with Maxie and Peter, and the emotional fallout that followed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, check out some moments from Maxie giving Peter a piece of her mind!

Roger Howarth Returns to General Hospital and Debuts His New Character

Thursday was a special day for longtime fans of General Hospital and those of fan favorite Roger Howarth.  Today, Howarth returned in his new role on the ABC daytime drama series, who’s name is “Austin” and that viewers learn is a doctor, and that is all we know thus far.

General Hospital and Howarth previously noted that even though he was killed-off a few months ago as Franco Baldwin after he was shot in a struggle with Peter August (Wes Ramsey) that he would make his re-emergence on the canvas sometime in May.

Now with summer right around, Howarth is back.  When we first see his new soap incarnation of “Austin”, he comes to the rescue of Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms), who has gone into labor and found her way into the woods to escape the clutches of evil Nurse Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown) and Peter’s machinations.

And … as she just so happens to need a doctor, lo and behold there is Austin in the woods from what appears to be a hike, who ultimately helps deliver Maxie’s baby girl.  Trouble is, at the end of the episode, it appears that baby Louise might not be breathing.

In a summer preview for GH, in the brand new issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands this weekend, GH head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor teased, “Roger’s new character has an interest in a prominent Port Charles family.  He’ll shake up the canvas in surprising ways as summer unfolds.”

So, were you happy to see Roger back on GH today? Do you like that he is seemingly playing a doctor? Share your theories on his new character”Austin” via the comment section. But first check out, Howarth’s debut as Austin in the clips below.
