If you caught Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, the show opened up with a melancholy Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) strumming his birthday gift  …  an acoustic guitar.

The gift was given to him by his current lady love, Sam (Kelly Monaco).  Earlier, Sam turned down Patrick’s marriage proposal saying she is not ready quite yet and that the timing was bad.   Sam related she had to through the next few days, because it would have been her and Jason’s (Billy Miller) fourth wedding anniversary.  So with that, Patrick wrote a new song on his brand new guitar, while Sam was remembering Jason as she went through a box of their shared belonging.

As Patrick sang the song, which contained the lyrics: “I can’t tell you what hurt first.  The regret of my question, or the truth in your words.  Love has shown me there’s always an open door.  So be careful what you wish for, ” Sam overheard the good doc singing it, and noted its content.  The tune was also played over the action of other scenes at the beginning of the episode.

Many fans took to social media since the episode aired asking Jason Thompson whether or not he penned the tune that he sang? And the answer was a resounding, “Yes” as he clarified on Twitter.   Today, Jason posted the lyrics to the song which is entitled “Sailor Short on Wind”.

So, what did you think of the song and it’s lyrics? Did you enjoy seeing Jason sing on GH again? Do you think Patrick should be more upset with Sam turning down his marriage proposal?  Share your thoughts below!

The song is okay but Jason isn’t much of a singer and needs to stick to acting.

I actually like the intonation of his voice. He is better than a lot of bellyachers out there who pose as singers. And, I do love his hair.

The song was a nice touch and made for an effective opening. I think Patrick’s reaction has been appropriate and, happily, has not been written in a cliched way. Jason Thompson is so good in the role – really natural and completely believable.

Only if they have a new actress who can make a commitment to GH. Get tried of Kim coming and going because of her other career ambitions.

The way he’s been acting lately, when I saw him with the guitar I expected to hear Dr Drake sing,”I am Woman” by Helen Reddy.
All kidding aside, the song was very nice.

Good one, Harry! With it being GH, we know it wouldn’t be another Reddy hit, “Peaceful.”

Since we’re getting to know who Jake is very soon it’s funny how Sam can’t commit to Patrick. I’m guessing she’s going to find that out real soon too.
I don’t like when actors write and sing on their soaps.
Frisco however was so different.

Ooooh Frisco can sing anytime!!!

Wow, terrific lyrics! Funny, Shay and I were just talking about the lack of A song on a soap like they used to do on soaps in the 80’s. [“Lady of my Heart”, ode to Felicia from Frisco.] Its nice to see and I couldnt help but see Dr. Noah Drake in that scene. Patrick and Noah really could pass for father and son and I’d love to see them perform together. Some of the fans complain about the mob element and want the hospital in GH to return. Well, hire Dr. Drake as Chief of Staff.

The lyrics of “Sailor Short on Wind” are profound & poetic.
J.T. did a really beautiful job on the song.
I enjoyed his sincere performance. The song suites mood & atmosphere of
what was going on between Sam & Patrick.
Sam, as always looked beautiful & compassionate.
I love the dynamic between these two engrossing characters.
(Don’t get how anyone would call them boring!
I’ll miss Samtrick with J.T. & K.M. When they’re over!)

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Makes The Heartbreaking Decision About Mike In Episode With Touching Performances

For anyone who has gone through losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s Disease, Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital would bring them right back to the place they found themselves in when faced with the difficult decision of what to do when there is no more hope, when the disease has progressed to its most advance stages, and wanting the person they love to die with what dignity they have left.

Through Sonny’s journey played beautifully by Maurice Benard, we see a son who wants to do what he can to prolong his father’s life, holding on to the moments where there seemed to be some signs of life within his dad, and not wanting the guilt of being the person to make the ultimate decision – in this case to put Mike (Max Gail) on a feeding tube, when he no longer has the desire to eat.

Wanting to move forward with the procedure to have a feeding tube put into Mike, Sonny runs into Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) who tells him about Yvonne, and how she is at GH on a feeding tube and a ventilator and strapped to a bed.

When Sonny sees how Yvonne is hooked to machines, it is a real awakening for him,  That, coupled with one of the most important talks and moments in the Alzheimer’s storyline when Sonny speaks to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  – who tells him how she sees Mike, who is now a shell of himself, who doesn’t smile, doesn’t eat, and so forth – Sonny is aware of what he truly needs to do.  These scenes they were played to perfection by Rebecca Herbst and Maurice Benard, and couple that with Laura Wright and Steve Burton as a concerned and emotional Carly and Jason; seeing how this situation is ripping Sonny apart, and also facing that Mike will die, they too are devastated and delivered hankie-filled moments in their scenes.

The final minutes of the episode featured father and son in a simple, quiet, and powerful scene where Sonny tells his dad, he is not going to have a procedure, and that it’s OK for him to go.   Mike, in tears, hears what Sonny is saying and is relieved.  Sonny has set him free to die, and now Sonny must face his decision – a selfless one that any of us who have been in this position know has to be done for their loved one; so there will be no more suffering and no more pain.  Kudos to GH for today’s scenes in this storyline.

Watch the scene between Sonny and Elizabeth below.

Now let us know via the comment section, how do you think GH handled this major moment in the telling of the Alzheimer’s storyline? What did you think of the performances?
