Brenda tries to convince Dante of Sonny’s innocence in the car bomb case. Sonny pursues Brenda further only to have her reiterate that they have no future. Spinelli reveals that the Balkan has gone out of his way to be invisible even on cyberspace. Luke meets with Jason to talk about the Balkan. Brenda asks Jason to help keep her away from Sonny and breaks down emotionally. In only her underwear, Lisa appears to Patrick in the GH locker room. Lisa continues to push Robin’s buttons, and Robin slaps her. Robin incriminates herself with Steve when she thinks Lisa has told on her. After having sex, Siobhan convinces Lucky to take her with him to find Brenda and they discover she is in Port Charles. Luke asks Carly for a favor – a room at the Metro Court until Tracy takes him back. Ethan tells Luke about being beat-up by Johnny’s men loaned to the Balkan because of his father’s international activities with “Ronan O’Reilly.” Mayor Floyd asks Ronnie to do whatever it takes to push Dante off the police force. Conflicted over his past decisions, Dante takes out his guilt on Michael. Brenda finds herself close in a kiss with Sonny and breaks away, demanding that Sonny go away. Sonny decides to give Brenda space, but he is not giving up on them. After discussing with Luke, Jason updates Sonny on Brenda’s status with the Balkan. Brenda calls Robin and begs her to help keep Sonny away. Jason and Sam get passionate, but Sam refuses to have sex with Jason in the same apartment with Brenda. Ordered to kill Siobhan by the Balkan’s men, Lucky bluffs to save their lives. Later, Lucky insists Siobhan come back to Port Charles with him for their safety and to keep up their cover to the Balkan. Steve comes to Lisa’s defense with Patrick, who argues that Lisa is as crazy as ever. Lisa takes a room at the Metro court on the same floor as Patrick. Ronnie warns Dante that Mayor Floyd has it in for him.

Carly once again challenges Jax on his feelings for Brenda, only to discover he is remodeling the Metro Court to accommodate an apartment for Brenda. Michael admits that he finds Brenda attractive. Charmed by Brook Lynn, Nik continues to pay her to be his social escort to events. Epiphany warns Robin that if she keeps lashing out at Lisa, the crazy stick is going to point at her and no one else. Considering Lisa’s impeccable hospital record so far, Steve doubts Lisa is guilty.  Robin freaks when she thinks Lisa is messing with her patients. Tracy tells Luke she’ll consider marrying him if he returns her $10 million. Ethan concocts a plan to get his father back into Tracy’s good graces. Carly revels telling Claire that Brenda dumped Sonny. Claire asks Dante to investigate Brenda’s background for her personal reasons. Spinelli comes to Maxie and Lulu’s defense when Kate lays into them for not getting Brenda on the cover of Crimson.

Both Jason and Suzanne separately press Brenda to reveal the truth behind the Balkan’s attack on her, but Brenda refuses. Carly plants a passionate kiss on Jason to incite jealousy from Jax. Robin falsely accuses Lisa and starts to spin out of control as Lisa hoped she would. Robin confides in Maxie and then attacks Patrick for the end of their marriage. Just as Ethan and Maya kiss, Luke collapses in front of Tracy, convincingly feigning a heart attack. Ronnie sympathizes with Dante but tells him to focus on convicting Sonny. Sonny and Claire arrive for dinner at Chez Loire – each having received an invitation from the other in a setup.

Lucky meets with Jason, and they realize there is an opportunity to lure the Balkan with Brenda for both their benefit, but a hidden Balkan minion photographs them. Carly is convinced that the only way to save her marriage is to sleep with Jason, thereby motivating Jax to pursue her over Brenda. Brenda admits to Spinelli that she always hurts the guys she falls in love with. Sonny confronts Dante about Brenda, just as Brenda is visited by Lulu. Lucky asks Nik for Siobhan’s asylum at Wyndemere while Lucky tries to find Brenda for the Balkan. Tracy is convinced Luke is faking, until Lulu makes an emotional plea and Maya doctors Luke’s test results so it appears he really had a massive coronary. Tracy’s faith is renewed, and she promises to take care of Luke. Thinking the other sent the dinner invitation, Sonny and Claire realize Carly set them up. Sonny apologizes for breaking things off with Claire, and they agree to start dating again.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brando Dies … But Not From His Wounds

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, poor Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) was hit with yet another punch to the gut.  After losing her baby, Liam, back in December of 20201, she has now lost her husband, Brando (Johnny Wactor), in s shocking turn events that played out in Brando’s hospital room.

Finally coming to (following being ‘hooked’ by the mysterious figure) after surviving hours of surgery from his wounds, he goes coughs up blood and then goes into a massive seizure right in front of Sasha.

Panicked, Sasha calls for help, where Portia (Brook Kerr) and her team run in to try to save Brando.  Next, we get a montage of the love story of Brando and Sasha, which is never a good sign on soap operas – as it more often than not – signals the end of the line for a character.

After Portia is completely rattled by why Brando is dying when the surgery is a success, eventually he passes away.  Portia comes out of his hospital room and tells Sasha they did everything they could.  Just then, Brando’s mom, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) along with Nina (Cynthia Watros), come by and all the women are struck with heartbreaking grief.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene and asks Portia what happened and she reveals there were sudden complications.

Wanting a moment alone to say goodbye to his cousin, Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Brando to take care of Liam and Mike when he sees them in heaven. Sonny also promises to take care of Sasha and Gladys. Next, Sasha wants Sonny to go into Brando’s room with her, and they are joined by Nina and Gladys, who all stand over his bedside in tears.

Elsewhere, Portia finds Finn (Michael Easton) to look over Brando’s medical reports and case, and relates that Brando’s symptoms don’t track with what happened to him when he was brought into the ER and what happened in surgery.  She ponders if there is a more sinister explanation for his death, hoping Finn (even though he is an infectious disease doc) can help shed some light.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Linda Purl Guest Stars as Peyton and Carly Open Old Wounds

Thursday’s episode of General Hospital featured a guest star turn by TV and film star, Linda Purl taking on the role of Mrs. Wade Honeycutt aka Peyton.

In story, while delayed in Jacksonville on her way to Aruba, Carly (Laura Wright) is blindsided by a woman who comes up to her saying how refreshing it is to see someone reading a book and not on their cellphone. Carly shares she lost the phone on the plane she was on before she was grounded due to bad weather in Jacksonville. Being in Jacksonville is the last place that Carly wants to be; given this is the place she grew up in and was then known as “Caroline Benson”.

When the woman named “Peyton” joins her at her table, they talk about Jacksonville. The very-opinionated Peyton shares that she is a member of the city beautification board.  Then, she looks at the bar and sees a married man she knows with a young woman who is not his daughter, which sets her off.  Peyton calls ‘her kind, trash’, alluding to that the young woman is a call girl.  Carly is taken aback by her comments.  Shockingly, Peyton reveals how Ruby Anderson’s boarding house was torn down by her beautification board, because everybody knew it was a brothel. Next, Carly reveals Ruby was her great aunt.

All of a sudden, a horrified and emotional Carly realizes who Peyton is!  Peyton was married to another man before her current husband Wade. Peyton realizes Carly is Caroline Benson, and knows that Carly has been using her daughter Reese’s nickname.  At that point, Peyton lets Carly have it as she blames her for Reese’s death.

We then learn that Carly seduced Peyton’s then-husband Daniel. Carly defends herself as a 16-year-old teen and that her husband was an adult, so he was at fault for everything.  Peyton calls Carly ‘trash’ who just wanted Reese’s life and tried to get it by sleeping with her father. When Reese found out about the tryst, she was devastated and got in a car, and wound up in the accident that killed her.

Carly tells Peyton she is not having this; she is a grown woman and owes her nothing.  Peyton tells her to get out of Jacksonville as soon as possible because she doesn’t belong there and never did.

The scenes between Purl and Laura Wright were outstanding.  However, many fans have referenced that the back-story of Reese and Carly was altered.

So, what did you think of the scenes between Linda Purl and Laura Wright as Peyton and Carly drudge up the past? Comment below.
