Is it so long Epiphany on General Hospital?  Well sort of. General Hospital’s Sonya Eddy who has played Nurse Epiphany has been bumped to recurring status by the series.  According to ABC Soaps In Depth, Eddy tweeted, “There’s a rumor out there that I’m off GH. It’s true to a [point]. I’m recurring now, so we shall see.”

The actress also posted the news on her Facebook page as well, writing, “So, the question has been asked. Here’s the answer… It is true, I have been taken off contract with GH. And so it goes…”

It would appear the latest tweets from Ingo Rademacher (Jax) announcing he will be seeing much less airtime, and Eddy’s annoucements that this is where some of the necessary budget cuts are being made at GH at this time.  Stay tuned.

Guza gotta go, storylines have to improve and not repeat themselves over and over and who is freakin left on the show, dirty lisa, uggggly terrel, and nik is thinking of leaving in the spring due to no air time when brook was the main star of y&r as coleen she is an awesome actress and her and nik could have a great story, they only get 5 mins a week, trust me i wait and the video is just under 5mins, wow they are so going off the air and this is due to having franco show up or adrean b or that weird guy playing balkin, stupidest storyline, i only watch for robin &patrick, my jasam, and nookie*(brook and nik) and I am praying for ethan and Kristina. oh, lucky & shiobon and my sonny and brenda, dante and lulu and maxi and mat, now steve and olivia would be awesome! sick to make baby jos die of stage 5 cancer and wow when drew garrett was up for an emmy and it made national tv how people were protesting, hell of an actor, but liz who has no story, same one since zander,whhhhoooo going back and she is still repeating same story! Gloria Monte is probably rolling over in her grave, R.I. P. God love her, way bf this Guza’s time. So worried bout production, can’t produce no material, oh yeah u guys blame it on people not watching soaps, lmao! Wow, my 13 year old comes up with shocking stories, a gh fan for 40 years and this is the most disappointed besides liz having jason’s baby as sam take s bullet for him and he turns into a monster,lying scum bag, thank God steve reclaimed his rep by being the honest loyal jason with his trusted partner in crime solving sam! “and that’s all she wrote” wow, felt good to vent!

i really like her on gh.i hope they dont drop her from the show. i love the way she always tells the nurses and doctos straight forward how it is.lol its like shes the mother hen of the hospital. if they get rid of someone get rid of LISA, save Piffany!!!

what?
what?

Gh has really lost it’s mojo, even entertaining the idea of Ethan & Kristina is a total yuck fest, Nik & Brooke suck, Sonny with annoying Brenda is painful to watch, Carly & Jax need to be 2gether!!!!, Patrick & Robin are tolerable, Ethan & Maya play well off each other, Lucky & Siobhan are not bad, but her fake ancient makes me gag!, Jason & Sam are Hottt!!!, I even like the thought of Johnny & Lisa?, Luke & Tracy are fun to watch, Alexis & Mac really work, stop playing around and let these two hook up! Last but not least Michael & Gabby, kill me now please, Gabby is just plain annoying, her voice makes me cringe, I’m sure some people out there thinks she’s eye candy, if so, Sour Patch comes to mind, in my opinion.

sorry
sorry

Feel bad for Epiphany & Jax, I know people where fighting for Liz to stay (not me), is this the reason for two great actors to go on recurring status? Rebecca should be put on recurring status, they where going write her off?? GH once again you break my heart with your crazy decisions.

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?

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.
