Everyone of the great soapers that regularly visit On-Air On-Soaps, and that have expressed their concern and well wishes over the last several months for General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie), finally got a message from the talented young actress via her Twitter account yesterday!

Storms, who has been on medical leave since September, tweeted: “I hope everyone is having a great holiday season w/the ones they love…fingers crossed you’ll see more of me after the New Year!! ;)”

This is somewhat encouraging news! Recently, Jen Lilley who has replaced Storms as the temporary recast of Maxie Jones, told her hometown newspaper at Roanoke.com about her experience while in Storms place, and her contract status with the soap, stating,  “The entire GH cast and crew are such warm, amazing, kind, and talented people. At the same time, I sincerely hope Kirsten gets well and comes back. They can always write me in as a new character, it is a soap after all.  Right now, I’m under contract through Christmas, and if she is still feeling ill, I will do another 90-day contract that ends in March of 2012.”

We hope 2012 brings Kirsten home to Port Charles!

I rather like Jen Lilley… she’s Storms and the late Shell Kepler (Amy Vining) rolled into one! She’s done a fantastic job!

Agreed, she does remind me of the late Shell Kepler’s Amy Vining as well – excellent comparison Rickie. I think Jen Lilley is doing a fine job, but I still look forward to the return of Kirsten Storms.

Kristen IS Maxie Jones and she can’t be replaced. I’m having a hard time buying you’re replacement as Maxie, she just does’t work. Come back and give Spinelli a little more attention!

I think Jen is doing a pretty good of job as Maxie Jones, considering she has some major shoes to fill. Still, nobody can play Maxie like Kristen

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
