Say what you will of Katie Couric, but General Hospital fans, she delivered an extra special episode honoring the 50th episode of the soap on yesterday’s edition of her syndicated talker, KATIE!  Now, while some may say there was too much Katie throughout, after all it is her show!

But what an amazing array of interviews and guests and segments! From having Jason Thompson (Patrick) co-host with her, to bringing on the legendary trio of Tony Geary (Luke), Genie Francis (Laura) and Kin Shriner (Scott), to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) touching interview, to Jack Wagner’s (Frisco) emotionally re-telling the story of meeting his long lost daughter for the first time, to having everyone in the audience be superfans of GH and then three of them getting to play a trivia game with Kelly Monaco (Sam), Finola Hughes (Anna)  and Wagner, to the fantastic clip packages throughout, to Rick Springfield (Noah) performing, there was something for every one.  And yes, Katie gets into the action when tapes a scene on GH with Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) and Sonya Eddy (Epiphany), that will air on GH shortly!

Watch the entire episode after the jump of Couric’s GH extravaganza, and let us know what was your favorite part of the episode!

i hate to say this but i enjoyed katie couric with gh stars. she was funny perky and a joy to watch katie. i was a big fan pf katie couric on the today show. then i really got sick and tired of her. i thought getting her own daytime talk show will kill and cancel general hospital. when the revolution got cancelled. gh got renewed. by the way the revolution was a horrible show. katie got renewed for a second season good for you katie. i will start watching katie more now. she loves her soap stars. gh needs to get renewed for 3 years now. do it abc now.

I really had to push to get past my initial feeling of ick… because I wanted to see my GH cast!!! I would have liked to have them interviewed and to have the interviewer care what they were saying… but the show is called Katie and that is who it’s all about 200% of the time. I hope she listens and asks questions on the 20 20 show.

To the GH cast members who participated… thank you and I wish we could have heard more from you! Thank you for being the best cast on the best show!!! Congratulations GH!!!

Michael, thank you for sharing this video on your webpage. I live in South Florida and our ABC affiliate chose to pre-empt Katie for their own local weather forecasting because of some thunderstorms. Please, give me a break. Thanks again Michael.

For once I wish I’d watched KATIE. If I’d known it was in honor of GH I would have lifted my ABC ban.

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.
