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.

Friday’s, March 25th episode of General Hospital, brought with it the on-screen debut of Tabyana Ali as Trina Robinson.  As viewers know, Ali replaced popular actress Sydney Mikayla in the role.

Mikayla had decided to leave the ABC daytime drama series to go to college full-time.  With that, GH auditioned her replacement and Tabyana won the part.

In her debut episode, Ali was thrown into the mix with key characters and actors in Trina’s storyline including parents, Portia (Brook Kerr) and Marcus Taggert (Réal Andrews).

Additionally, Tabyana appeared opposite, Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), where Trina gave the guy a giant brush-off, and later had a run-in with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Cameron (William Lipton) over everyone believing Trina is responsible for the video showing Joss and Cam making love going viral and in the their classroom.  Of course, the audience knows Esme (Avery Pohl) is framing Trina for it.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: The Ryan and Esme Connection Revealed

Putting the ‘creep’ into some scenes with a big revelation had soap fans chatting on the Twitterverse yesterday and today. On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers learned what some had suspected that it appears that evil Esme (Avery Pohl) is actually evil Ryan’s (Jon Lindstrom) daughter.

It call came out when Esme, while at Spring Ridge, sneaks into Ryan’s room and sort of admonishes him for speaking out loud where people could hear him, when for months he has been feigning locked-in syndrome, unable to talk, and blew all their months of plotting,

Then, Ryan says, “Actually, I was thinking about you and how you’ve failed me.”  Ryan reveals the plot was about breaking up Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), and she’s been wasting time on Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and the teen scene drama.  Esme drops to her knees and begs ‘daddy’ to believe in her and she adds, “that he likes it when she calls him ‘daddy”.  Ryan responds, “Be careful what you wish for.”

Esme goes on the offensive and threatens to tell Ryan’s twin, Kevin, that he’s been able to talk for months. Next, Ryan grabs Esme arms and reminds her that he is the one in control here and calling the shots … not her.

Ryan insists it’s time for them to go back to the objective, Ava.  He tells Esme she needs to get on the good side of Spencer’s parents, especially Spencer’s dad, Nikolas.

“You know what they say, like father like son,” Ryan gloats.  Esme is at first not sure where this is going, but then seems to smirk.

In the end, Ryan tells Esme she will get everything her heart desires.  Next, Ryan stands up out of his wheelchair and tells her that what’s his is hers … and then adds, “My beautiful, gifted daughter.”  We fade to black.

So, if Esme is Ryan’s bio-daughter who is Esme’s mother … or is Ryan lying to Esme to get her to do more of his dirty work? Share your thoughts on the scenes via the comment section below.

GH’s Finola Hughes Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Once again, as she has many times previously, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna) is our pick for the Power Performance of the Week. This time, Hughes, brought the emotional heartbreak, guilt, the steely resolve of super spy Anna Devane, all rolled into one as Anna helped end the life of super villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey) aka Henrik Faison.

It seemed fitting that in the end, as Peter is near his last breaths (after being clubbed over the head by Felicia and taking a fall), that it was Anna who was by his side, but not how you might expect.  Feigning that she called for an ambulance and the paramedics to help Peter, when she in fact didn’t, proved once again Anna can be as tough as they come as she was going to take care of Peter once and for all, by simply preventing anyone from coming to save him.

Peter, knowing the end is near calls Anna a killer, and she responds, “Depends on your perspective.”  What Hughes does so well is give Anna the appearance that she often has it all under control, when we, the audience, know she’s conflicted and she is breaking inside.  After all, Anna had believed for quite some time that Peter was her son with Faison, only to find out later it was her twin sister, Alex, who was his bio-mom.

When Anna showed Peter some understanding as he is dying, she expressed, “No one deserves to die alone, not even you.” Anna did take Peter’s hand in his final moments. Later, walking away from his dead body, and in tears, and she says goodbye to him in a full-circle moment. Finally, the bad guy had been apprehended and he can’t hurt anymore people that Anna loves or feels responsible for.

Next, a guilt-ridden Anna returned to Port Charles, and Robert (Tristan Rogers) was there to catch her in her emotional time of need.  In wonderfully played scenes between Finola and Tristan Rogers, Robert says to Anna, “I see him (Peter) sitting on your shoulder, dripping doubt into your ear.”  Anna responds, “Will you answer me something honestly? Do you not think that I bear some responsibility for the way that he turned out, and all the blood he spilled?” Robert tells Anna that no, she does not, and she nearly got herself killed for it.   The emotional high point occurred when Robert tells Anna that the “next time she gives her heart to someone, give it to some guy that deserves her love.”  Hughes’ reactions as Anna listens to Robert intensely, and is overcome with tears, was beautifully played.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH’s co head-writer, Chris Van Etten shared on Peter’s demise, “We always knew that the final moment had to be between Anna and Peter.  There was no other consideration.  The story started with Anna, and it has to end with Anna.”

So, what do you think of our pick for Finola Hughes as the Power Performance of the Week? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
