It’s been awhile since, almost six weeks since we have been able to name a Power Performance of the Week on daytime television, but given the incredible display of acting talent given material worthy of them by Ron Carlivati and the GH writing team this past week, we can honestly say, we think this may be the kick-start daytime and certainly General Hospital needed!
While so many in the cast of GH have had heartbreaking moments surrounding the demise of the beloved Dr. Robin Scorpio, there were three this past week that really took our breath away, and we are sure next week the big Tristan Rogers and Tony Geary’s scenes may be included in next week’s “Power” announcement.
But for sheer understated simplicity that to us just feels so realistic in such an unrealistic set of circumstances, Finola Hughes as Anna Devane, the grieving mother, reminds us why she is a Daytime Emmy winner, and why she has been sorely missed from the Port Charles canvas for far too long. In the scenes with Luke in the diner, where she talks about her beautiful daughter, and her concern for Robert, they stunning moments. However, there were scenes throughout the week with Patrick and Robert, and debating whether to go into the morgue to see her charred daughter, all were just sensitively and touchingly portrayed. BRAVA!
Next, Jason Thompson (Patrick), what can we say? Tears flowing, a man trying to come to grips with the death of his wife, in which for all intent and purposes he witnessed. Then Patrick has to go perform life or death surgery on Jason, and then he attempts to figure out how to tell his little girl her mother is never coming home. It was all very well-done. And of course, the scene that has everyone is talking about where Epiphany had a heart to heart with the good doc, has become an instant GH classic.
And then we have Maurice Benard who as Sonny sat with Sam while waiting for Jason to come out of surgery and remembered Robin, like a sister. He recalled all that she and Stone had gone through and what she meant to him, and he made us at home reach for the hankies! It was great to see Maurice being given material that was subtle and introspective, instead of a gun-toting mobster for a change!
