PCPD, Kate admits to Alexis her fears that Connie is responsible for Cole and Hope’s death — as Todd overhears. Meanwhile, Tea and Carly face off. Later, Todd informs Tea of his discovery, but she refuses to listen. So Todd tells Carly.  Patrick remains stuck in his grief and requests Epiphany reassign his patients. When Elizabeth finds out he has refused to operate on Ewen, she pays a visit herself.  McBain comforts Sam as she spends her birthday alone, missing Jason. Meanwhile, Jason finds support from Liz as she cares for Emma. Later, Sam returns to her room and encounters Jason, who has come to with her happy birthday. Luke and Anna encounter Liz with Emma and Aiden, and they end up babysitting their grandchildren together. Later, Heather witnesses the happy domestic scene. Olivia finds the timing of Maggie’s death and confession to be disturbing, but Heathers insists they concentrate on Steve.

Despite the betrayal, Sonny asks Alexis to help defend Kate. Meanwhile, Johnny tries another tactic to win back Carly, only for Todd to intervene. Later, Johnny and Sonny almost come to blows — but in an attempt to do right by Carly, Johnny tells Sonny he should forgive Kate instead. As Starr confides in Kate about her recent loss, unaware Kate may have caused it, Michael insists to Sonny he has no qualms testifying against Starr, as Todd overhears. We realize, along with Michael, that Molly and TJ have been secretly dating behind Shawn and Alexis’ back.

Carly gives Michael good advice about his motives to testify against Starr. Meanwhile, Tea tries to convince Starr to discredit Michael, but she refuses. Todd attempts to emotionally blackmail Sonny – if Michael backs off Starr, Todd will back off Kate. To Elizabeth’s relief, Patrick pulls himself together to operate on Ewen. Despite his promise, Spinelli names Matt as Lisa Niles’s murderer in court. Meanwhile, Maxie breaks the same news to Matt, who has been wholly unaware.

Kate prepares to confront Connie with the help of a psychiatrist, and Sonny admits to Kate he hired Alexis for her. Later, Kate demands to know if Connie is guilty. Kate almost comes clean to Starr but can’t bring herself to it. Later Starr is arraigned for the attempted murder of Sonny, and she pleads … not guilty. As Maxie admits her cover-up for Matt, Spinelli is forced to name Matt in the courtroom. The judge agrees to free Maxie if she signs an oath confirming Matt as the killer. Later, Mac and Felicia hope Spinelli will get through to Maxie. Luke stops Tracy from making a messy murder of Anthony. Later, Anthony overhears their plot to get rid of him.

Anthony overhears Tracy asking Luke to whack Anthony. Luke will get Anthony out of Tracy’s life in exchange for Tracy promising not to try to kill Anthony herself. Tracy wants to know what Luke’s plan is. Luke admits he doesn’t have one yet, but will handle him in own way.  Alexis and Sonny enter the other side of the lineup room and see Kate yelling at the two-way mirror, yelling at Connie, demanding to know what she did. Sonny rushes in to comfort Kate but meets Connie instead! Connie is able to keep Alexis out and proceeds to tell Sonny everything: she needed to get Sonny to dump Kate. Sonny knows it was Connie not Kate that slept with Johnny. Connie knocked out Ewen. Sonny grabs Connie: what did she do the night of the accident?! Later, Connie tells Sonny that it was her that night that tried to kill Anthony!

Anthony shows up at Johnny’s place and tells him that strange things have been happening. He now has proof that Tracy is trying to kill him; he’ll have to give Tracy her divorce and move back in with Johnny. Johnny isn’t cool with that. Anthony snaps, grabs Johnny, and tells him he’s tired of the whining about his childhood. Johnny falls to the ground as Anthony pulls a gun on him. Anthony is ready to shoot Johnny, but Johnny laughs, tells him to go ahead, it would make them even. Ultimately, Johnny tells Anthony it wasn’t Sonny that tried to kill him, it was Johnny!

Todd tells Tea he knows who killed Hope. Todd tells Tea about Kate and her split personality. Todd explains the offer he made to Sonny, but admits that it would appear that Sonny does not care for Kate like he used to. Maxie is grateful to Spinelli for getting her released without revealing Matt. Spinelli has to admit that he did reveal that information and Maxie now has to testify against Matt for her freedom. Maxie feels like everything is falling apart and it’s all Spinelli’s fault.  Meanwhile, Matt is talking to Elizabeth, and before he can admit he was the murderer, Patrick joins them with the news that Ewen’s surgery went well. Elizabeth moves off to check on him. Patrick is there for his brother, but Matt decides not to admit he’s the murderer.

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt Dies, Josslyn Breaks Up with Cameron, Ava Finds Out Esme is Pregnant

Wednesday’s General Hospital featured a heartbreaking death and an emotional break-up.  Although fans knew that Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) was leaving the daytime soap opera, we all thought that she would exit the canvas alive, especially given the set-up of her goodbye/birthday party, and that Britt was leaving those she loved behind to go live out her days with a new identity why she battled Huntington’s Disease.

However, the surprise was on us.  When Britt returned to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother Liesl (Kathleen Gati), she collapses. Eventually, Britt starts coughing up blood and Liesl finally realizes she needs to call 911.  But, it’s all too late.  Britt tells Liesl she won’t make it to the hospital as she was poisoned by ‘The Hook’.  As she draws her last breaths, Britt asks her mother to hold her.   The scenes featured touching performances by Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud.

Later, Liesl is alone at the hospital and Scott (Kin Shriner) joins her, and that is when Scott learns Britt dies.  He phones Nina.  Meanwhile, Liesl says one final emotional goodbye to Britt.

In another tearjerker. Josslyn (Eden McCoy) realizes she has to break up with Cam (William Lipton) tonight, especially after having sex with Dex (Evan Hofer).  She says it was wrong of her to give into her feelings for Dex, without breaking up with Cam, first.  Joss heads to Kelly’s with Dex outside for protection from ‘The Hook’.  Inside, an emotional Joss tells Cam things have changed between them, and that they can’t go back to how they were.  She apologizes to a gut-punched Cam but she’s not in love with him anymore.  Cam tells her they cannot go back to being friends.  Eden McCoy and William Lipton were excellent in these break-up scenes.

At GH, Esme (Avery Pohl) apparently has some form of amnesia from her hypothermia and can’t remember her name, that she was pregnant or where she was.  Is it another trick … or did Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) just get off scot-free for their roles in kidnapping her?

When Ava (Maura West) arrives at GH and learns that Esme is pregnant, Nikolas approaches her so they can have a word in private.  Then, in front of Laura (Genie Francis), Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and more, Ava asks Nikolas if he is Esme’s baby daddy, to which he replies, “Yes”.    Then, as only Ava can do, she hauls of and slaps him as his mother looks on in horror over the entire situation!

So, were you shocked that GH decided to kill off Dr. Britt Westbourne? What did you think of the break-up scenes between Josslyn and Cameron? Now that Ava knows Esme is pregnant with Nikolas’ child, what do you hope she does next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section, but first, check out Josslyn trying to let Cameron down easy that only backfires on her in the clip from today’s GH below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: The Identity of ‘The Hook’ Revealed

In the first all-new episode of 2023, General Hospital made a ‘killer’ reveal on Tuesday as several characters were put into turmoil in life and death situations.

Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who is waiting at Pier 27 for her way out of Port Charles to enact her plan to disappear, instead winds up being at the right place at the wrong time.

Elsewhere at the pier, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) is fending off ‘The Hook” who is taking swipes at her.  Josslyn manages to push ‘The Hook’ away, but ends up tripping on her high heels!  ‘The Hook’ moves in to kill Josslyn, but in comes Britt to save the day! She and ‘The Hook” go at it and just when the killer is going to strike Britt, a shot is fired.  It’s Dex (Evan Hofer)! He has arrived on the scene. ‘The Hook’ takes off.

Next, Britt wants to call the police, but Dex stops her.  When the detective and the cops eventually show up, Britt tells them she fought off ‘The Hook’, who was attacking someone else. Britt says she doesn’t know where the other victim went to, as we cut to Dex who has taken Josslyn to his apartment.  Then, one thing leads to another, and Dex and Josslyn can’t resist their attraction to one another and have sex.

Back at the ‘Haunted Star’, just as Trina (Tabyana Ali) and Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) are about to kiss, Esme (Avery Pohl) shows up and passes out! She has hypothermia from jumping off the parapet at Wyndemere and landing in the steely waters below.  When Spencer gets Esme to the hospital, he calls Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) who is with Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), and they realize they are in big trouble with Esme landing at GH alive, pregnant, and with hypothermia. Will she implicate Liz and Nik as her kidnappers? Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) shows up at GH, and wants to question Esme, believing at this point she is more than likely ‘The Hook’.

Next, we see ‘The Hook” with a bloody arm, who then takes off her mask revealing herself to be … wait for it … Heather Webber!

After the shooting and almost being killed by ‘The Hook’, Britt decides to go back to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati).  The two down some shots.  However, when Britt removes her coat, Liesl sees blood on Britt’s chest, and the next thing you know, Britt crashes to the floor …  and we fade to black.

So, what do you think of the reveal of Heather Webber as ‘The Hook’? Do you think GH just killed-off Britt since Kelly Thiebaud is exiting the series? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
