Fantastic news for soap fans and General Hospital peeps!  Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her dance partner, Val Chermkovskiy who went into last night’s Dancing with the Stars: All Stars Results Show with the lowest score on the ballroom dance competition leaderboard were deemed “safe”! So that means Kelly and Val are still in the competition, and will compete again next week in a very tricky routine combination!

During The Results Show, each couple had to pick a fusion style dance combination for each other to compete next week!  Kelly and Val ended up with the Cha Cha/Foxtrot which on paper looks to have a high degree of difficulty.

In a dramatic ending to the night’s proceedings, all of the top three leaderboard vote-getters landed in the bottom three … and the couple that was sent home was Sabrina Bryan and her partner, Louis Van Amstel, who the night before scored perfect tens in what was related by the judges as Sabrina’s best performance.  The irony:  last time Sabrina was part of the DWTS competition she was sent packing the same week!

So soapers, did the wrong couple go home?  Are you excited that Kelly and Val will dance again? And remember keep voting soap fans!  And if you are rooting for  Kelly and Val,  they need each and every vote in a very tough season with stiff competition.

Whew! That was a close one. Tried to vote but the voting was closed. Don’t watch the show, but I want to support KeMo and soaps in general. Also voted for Donald Driver and didn’t watch then either. No ABC for me except GH. So, sorry, but it’s all just a big popularity contest. LOL!

Well, I guess we know Todd Manning watches. I wonder who he votes for?

I definitely think Kelly and Val deserve to still be in the competition. I don’t think Sabrina should have gone yet. As much as I like her – it should’ve been Kirstie.

I think that the Judges didn’t do a good job scoring ….. on the View today they showed where Whoopie pointed out where Sabrina’s partner kinda let her slip …yet the jujges gave her a perfect score? I think that they have been under scoring Kelly & Val. They have been giving Kelly scores lower than Kirtstie Alley??? Really?? No matter what, I am so happy that she has been doing so well!

While I won’t watch ABC except for GH, I do watch clips online. I agree that Kelly puts all her effort into her performances and it shows. I like Kirstie too, but her skills aren’t as good. The judges scores are as skewed as the fan popularity voting. So I guess it equals out. I had no problem voting for DD as a fan after watching his dancing, just as I have no issue voting for Kelly, as a fan, after watching her efforts. I hope Kelly goes all the way, again. I just can’t watch the show because I… Read more »

i just don’t understand how the tptb & tiic could even have an elimination this week when 8 million households were without power & couldn’t see the show or vote – this is just another way abc shows how much they care about the fans who were effected by this historical storm………..smh

Yes, it is a popularity contest, not just for skill. But Kirstie?? and Max, they are both very popular, but Kirstie is not that great. From what I have seen of Kel/Val, they are very good and totally in sync with each other. Happy they are moving on!

Everyone deserves a vote. I think the person, that should have gone home was. Kristie Alley not Sabrina and Louis. Besides Kelly had the lowest scores, the next person that had, the lowest scores was KRISTIE. All of the ATHLETES, AND KELLY AND VAL HAS MY VOTE.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
