General Hospital

GH's Dominic Zamprogna's Power Performance of the Week!

© JPI Studios

On yesterday’s fantastic episode of General Hospital, where parents and their children are reunited after the tragic and serious General Hospital Ski Trip bus accident, it was Dominic Zamprogna as Dante Falconeri who delivered another nuanced and stirring performance with his mix of trying to hold himself together while being fearful of the loss of his mother, Olivia, who is still in critical condition following surgery from her internal injuries suffered in the bus accident.

The episode was also filled with little nuggets especially from Steve Burton (Jason) getting to spend a few moments with his son, Jake ( thanks to Liz), Chad Duell (Michael) for playing the understated hero, and Jonathan Jackson (Lucky) for his monlogue about fatherhood to Siobhan.

But in the end, it was Zamprogna’s scene while at Olivia’s bedside that made many reach for the hankies!  And so,  On-Air On-Soaps names Dominic this week’s Power Performance of the Week. You can watch the entire episode at ABC.com or view our Video of the Day on the MF Soaps Homepage of Dominic’s scenes.

The Jan 5, 2011 episode is one of the best episodes in a long time! While Dante’s scenes were wonderful as were others, the scenes with Jason and Jake and Sam and Elizabeth were the best! Dante’s performance was emotionally powerful but so was Jason’s. The emotion in Jason’s face, eyes and finally smiles was so very powerful and more subtle and deeper. They all did an amazing job with this episode! Want more!

I really could not agree more. The actor, Dominic Zamprogna, is amazing. I literally cryed along with him. The pain and fear he showed for his mother was so heartwarming and, for me, it stole the whole show. There is nothing more beautiful than the relationship between mother and child and Dominic (Dante) and Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) show it perfectly on screen, perfection. He’s one amazing actor and General Hospital is lucky to have him on board.

I think DZ is the only actor on the show that will be nominated for a EMMY because he is that good but also because he is the only actor that the writers care about and really write for.

I just love Dominic, and I started even crying the thought that Olivia could die. I can almost relate to Dante’s worry, because one time I was worried about my mother when she had to go to work and the roads were horrible. After an hour my mother still had not gotten to work yet, and I was scared that something bad happened to her. In my relief my mother finally made it. I think that Dominic deserves an emmy because of his good acting. I started crying when Dominic did at his mother’s bedside. I’m glad though that Olivia pulled through. Dominic makes Dante seem so real and he is the best actor in ABC daytime. I love you Dominic.

I love Dominic and he makes Dante so real. I don’t understand whey he did not get an emmy nomination, but he should of. Dominic plays his part so well, and I cried as well when he was crying at his mother’s bedside. The fact that Dante was so heartbroken at the thought his mother could die made me sad. Dominic is the best actor in ABC Daytime and I simply love him.

I do like Dominic’s acting as well. I don’t know if he is my favorite actor though, because I still like Steve Burton. I did feel for Dante when the thought of his mother could die. It broke my heart. I think that my two favorite actors in daytime are Steve Burton and Dominic Zamprogna. It is hard to tell though, if I think that Dominic deserved an emmy. It depends on the votes, and he may deserve one. Maybe he will get one next year.

I like Dominic too, and I think that he is the best actor on the show. I do not usually like short guys, but he is something else. I love him with Lulu and I hope that they stick together. Lante is my favorite couple on the show. I loved it when Dante stuck by his mother, knowing that she could die. The tears he showed touched my heart, and he is the best guy on the show.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Aiden Continues To Be A Target For Bullies; Oscar Receives His Death Sentence

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, the long-running ABC daytime drama series, is certainly taking a look at some key issues of our time in regards to young children and teens.

When Liz leaves to meet with Willow, about Aiden, Franco and Aiden bake some cookies, where Franco is impressed and surprised to find out how excellent Aiden is in the kitchen and baking assorted kinds of cookies. When Franco asks why Aiden never told anyone that he liked baking so much, Aiden said he just didn’t want to be laughed at again.

At Charlie’s, Liz meets up with Willow. The teacher informs Liz that Aiden still prefers to avoid the other students and may not feel safe around them for a very long time.  Liz questions and ponders why Aiden has a target target on his back. Willow explains how kids can be cruel in an understatement, she adds that Aiden needs to find his true identity.

After Cam’s emotional day surrounding Joss and Oscar, he heads home.  Liz and Cam get their around the same time and are astounded by Aiden’s cookies! Franco tells Liz they just need to let Aiden be Aiden. Then when Cam and Aiden hang out on the couch, and after asking for the password to the iPad, Cameron opens it, and there is a heartbreaking message that reads, “Get Lost Gayden.”   Cam immediately closes it and hugs his little brother.

What happens when you are a teenager who should be living life and having fun with years to look forward to?  That is the other storyline, GH has been taking at look at.  Kim tells Terry that Oscar has questions now that the medical trial has failed, and he needs the truth, no matter how difficult it may be to hear.  On is way to meet with Terry and his mom, Oscar runs into Alexis and tells her he needs to finish his will.  Alexis is heartbroken to hear this news.

Once with Terry and Kim, Oscar asks a few questions about the what to expect as his condition worsens before his death, how to prepare for it, and how long he has to live. Terry explains n some cases headaches get worse, and that he may have difficulty with his balance. Then, Terry delivers the devastating news, he could live as long as 6-7 months … or as little as 6 more weeks.  Oscar is shaken.

Kim hands him a bucket list to-do book and calendar to go to set up all the things he wants to do before he dies.  He heads to meet Josslyn in the hospital chapel, where they pen in things in the book to do together.  Monica and Kim share a moment about losing their children, before they pass away.  Kim does not know what to do next.  She decides to head to the “Charlie’s” to see Julian; while Alexis has already told Julian to help Kim through this tough time, no matter his feelings towards her kissing Drew on New Year’s Eve.

Finally, Griffin removes Anna’s bandages and her eyesight has returned following her surgery.  Finn tells Anna the virus that caused the blindness has never been seen in North America.  Anna wonders if it was given to her while abroad?  Could this be something Cassandra did to her, or something, or someone else?

So, if GH does this story right about Aiden being bullied for his differences, it could definitely send a powerful message to many in the viewing audience and bring attention to young LGBTQ youth who are trying to be their authentic selves, if this is the story.   What do you think of Aiden’s plight now?  What did you think of how Oscar’s death sentence was handled?  Who or what caused Anna’s temporary blindness?  Share your thoughts on these storylines via the comment section below.
