If you caught last night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars: All Stars it was one of the most challenging evenings for several of the performers and their dance partners who had to deliver routines chosen by their competition!

For General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy that meant they had to perform a contemporary dance as chosen last week by Cheryl Burke! Given the fact that Kelly and Val had the most difficult task of the night to pull off in front of the judges, the live audience, and the television viewing public, Kelly and Val wowed with their modern dance.  What was additionally noteworthy was that Monaco had broken her middle toe earlier,  and was suffering from a fever prior to hitting the dance floor!

However, with all that going against her Kelly and Val’s routine was emotional, electric, and sexy! The judges comments reflected major kudos to Kelly and Val; Len Goodman noted that Kelly has been the biggest revelation.  Guest judge Paula Abdul said their dance was beautiful.  Bruno noted that their dance was the hardest and Kelly  nailed it. Carrie Ann Inaba felt the routine was  stunning, and gave the only negative comment from the judges that when Kelly and Val danced side-by-side that some of the moves were above Kelly’s level of dancing skills.  However, Inaba also said that it was something that takes years of training.

After the show, ABC Soaps In Depth caught up with Monaco where she revealed she did not admit to Val she had broken her toe until the dress rehearsal citing  “I don’t want to hear, ‘Oh, that’s an excuse’.  I don’t want any excuse not to do well. I want to suck it up and do it.”

At the end of the night, Kelly and Val were in third place on the  leaderboard! Topping the judges scores for the night were: Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd and Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough!  At the bottom of the leaderboard was Kirstie Alley and Max Chermkovskiy! Who will go home tonight on the Results Show?  What did you think of Kelly and Val’s performance?  If you have not seen it, watch it after the jump!

For the first time, her BF was not smiling at all. The “package” before the dance was very reveling.

Shawn & Derek are the best this season! I like the way Shawn is so mature for her age. She’s always professional, never overly emotional or hysterical. She’s a winner!

Team Vally has been kicking some major butt! Theirs was my favorite dance of the night, it was so stunning and emotional, just as Michael Fairman’s headline reads. I really want them to be the ones holding the mirror ball at the end.

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..
