Sonny and Todd get into a competition about who’s more dangerous, but when Sonny tries to leave the courtroom, Todd draws a gun. Meanwhile, Carly and Blair realize they share a common bond: scary ex-husbands. They drink and swap stories. Michael struggles to tell Starr that his father may be responsible for her loss, and Starr reacts angrily. She ends up checking out of the hospital and they both head to the courthouse. Blair and Carly head there as well, and at the end of the episode, everyone converges as Todd threatens Sonny, and a gun is fired. Dante and Lulu are puzzled by Delores’s behavior. Later, Johnny tries to get Delores on his side, hoping she’ll get him info on Sonny — but she turns him down. Ewen visits an agitated Kate, and they discuss his dissociative personality disorder theory. Could she have shot out Anthony’s tires during her blackout? Kate insists on her theory that it was Johnny. Later, Ewen sees Johnny arrive to Kate — or is it Connie? Steve confesses to Olivia that he murdered a scumbag patient back in Memphis so that his organs could save Maggie’s deserving child patient. Olivia reels from this bombshell.

The gunshot that rang out at the end of yesterday’s episode was fired by none other than John McBain. He gets everybody’s attention and ultimately directs the local cops to place Todd under arrest. Starr isn’t remotely ready to let Sonny off the hook for killing her family, however, and we also discover that there is a dark past between McBain and Sonny.  Despite Matt’s concern and Ewen’s counsel, Maxie remains guilt-ridden over Robin. Elizabeth shows up with some kind words that Robin told her over the years about Maxie, but Maxie flees in tears. Johnny gets deeper into Kate/Connie’s crazy, privy to both ladies in one sitting. Anthony tries to convince Johnny to take up Connie’s sex offer. But when Johnny begins to get hot and heavy with Connie, Kate emerges and chases him away in a panic.  Olivia stumbles onto a way to make Johnny take the squeeze off Steve after overhearing Tracy and Anthony discuss the car accident.

All of Robin’s family and friends prepare to their goodbyes at her memorial service. Jason is determined to see Robin after Spinelli slips up that something is wrong. Spinelli and Sam argue about Sam telling Jason that Robin has died – Spinelli thinks Jason deserves to know the truth, but Sam knows he’ll try to attend the funeral and that could compromise his health (and she doesn’t want to lose Jason). Later, Sam finds Jason putting his clothes on, ready to go see Robin. Despite Mac and Lulu’s best efforts, Maxie refuses to attend Robin’s funeral, still driven by her guilt. Edward briefly collapses, leading Monica to prevent him from going to Robin’s funeral. Edward, Tracy and Monica mourn Robin in their own way. Anna and Luke reunite, and he supports her as she prepares for the funeral. Patrick is haunted by visions of Robin as he prepares for her funeral. Liz and Matt do their best to support him. Liz tells Matt it’s nearly been one year since the death of her son, Jake, and she’s naturally thinking about him.

Robin’s funeral begins, and Mac, Elizabeth and Sonny all pay tribute to her. Determined to keep Jason in the dark about Robin and her funeral, Sam gets Alexis and Molly in on the ruse. Monica questions Sam whether that is a good idea, but Sam won’t budge – she thinks learning the truth could compromise Jason’s help. Carly has other ideas, and manages to sneak into Jason’s room by disguising herself.  Spinelli attempts to convince Maxie to come to Robin’s funeral, but Maxie – motivated by her guilt – refuses and won’t listen to Spinelli. We see that Maxie is really not in good shape, emotionally speaking.

Maxie melts down at Robin’s funeral in more than one way.  Sam searches for Carly, inadvertently catching full sight of Ewen. Sonny questions Kate on her involvement with Ewen.  Sonny takes a business call with a “surprising” visitor.  Carly tells Jason, Robin is dead.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.

GH’s Steve Burton, Laura Wright & Kelly Thiebaud Deliver The ‘Power Performances of the Week’

In a power play to show strength and solidarity against their enemies, a major move by longtime best friends, looks to shake up the canvas of General Hospital for some time to come, and within the framework of the story, three performers took the material they were given and broke our hearts throughout last week’s episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

Steve Burton (Jason) and Laura Wright (Carly) showed us the deep-inner conflict of their characters as after a remark by Ava (Maura West) about marriage being in-part a contract, but also part theater in the life of the mob, the two longtime besties come to a conclusion.

With the territory beginning to ramp up the violence again within the five families, Jason thinks if they got married it’s the best decision for the business with Sonny (Maurice Benard) gone.  He points out there is no going back from this. Then, Carly recalls their history, how they were once together, until she ultimately pushed him away, and Jason reminds her how she tests and tests things until they break, which is why her relationship with Sonny worked so well as a duo, and why with him it did not.  An emotional Carly thinks everyone will think she planned this given her history with Jason.  He assures her that all that is important is that the two of them know why they took this step.

Later in the week, Jason and Carly meet again, and it’s at that moment that Carly realizes she has to take off her wedding rings to Sonny. Jason says she doesn’t have to do that right now if she is not ready.  She bites the bullet and says that it has to be done.  As she removes her wedding rings, she breaks down in tears and notes how much she misses Sonny.

Throughout the week, there was another key player in all of this, Britt.  After admitting how much she is falling for Jason,  she is excited that Jason is coming by her room to see her at the Metro Court.  When he shows up, Britt knows something is up.  Jason tells Britt he is marrying Carly, and that it is the best move to protect the family and the business.  He is overcome delivering this information to Britt, just when things were starting between the two of them.  A devastated Britt tells Jason to get the hell out.  Jason tells her that she matters to him and that he will be there for her.  She cries as she tells him she doesn’t want his pity or support, and she should have known that Carly will always come first. Britt is completely blind-sided and shocked as Jason leaves.

Next, a heartbroken Britt visits Brad (Parry Shen) in Pentonville, where a stunned Brad learns that Britt slept with Jason, and she fills him on how they came together and how it’s now called-off between her and the hit man.  Brad is so sorry Jason hurt her, but then says, “Staying away from Jason probably will add years to her life expectancy.”  Sadly, Brad doesn’t know that Britt has the marker for Huntington’s Disease.

Throughout all of her scenes, Kelly Thiebaud played all the beats to perfection, and who knew we all would care so much for the “Britch”, but we do in the capable hands of this talented actress.

So, for all the reasons noted above Michael Fairman TV names Steve Burton, Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud work the Power Performances of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of the scenes featuring Jason, Carly and Britt, and where the storyline is heading?  What did you think of Steve, Laura, and Kelly’s performances? Let us know in the comment section.

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.
