Fans of ABC’s hit drama General Hospital will be able to submit questions and receive real-time responses from Emmy winner and fan favorite Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis), who will be up on Twitter at @NancyLeeGrahn during the East Coast broadcast of the show on Thursday, June 7 from 3:00-4:00 p.m., ET.

In the episode tomorrow, Alexis is less than thrilled to find Kristina’s reality show “Mob Princess” cameras rolling when she wakes up.

Nancy Lee Grahn  is also nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series with ceremonies to be held live on June 23rd and to be seen live on HLN!

Now soapers, knowing the out-spoken, humorous, and honest Grahn, this is one tweeting event not to be missed!

I am looking forward to this. I missed the first showing of “Mob Princess” (what day was it?). I can’t think of a worse way for a child to get back at her parents than invading their privacy and humiliating them like this. Nancy’s live commentary should make it all the more entertaining.

Why tweet when general hospital is on? Why not do it after it’s over. The last thing I want to do is keep my eyes on other things while the soaps are on. I need to see this reality crap Christina is going to pull on her parents before I make a comment but I will say this again, There is no way a 18 year old daughter of mine that I will allow to blackmail me into taking over my home, her 18 year old ass would be out the door while I am holding the door open I would be preaching to her to get a job no more allowance, Who is supporting her now?

Today when Alexis heard that Sam lost the baby, If I was Alexis I would have grabbed that camera that moron was pointing at her and hit that idiot over the head with it. Off to a bad start with this reality garbage.

This is a really interesting plot twist if it is not carried on too long. Christina almost died because of Sonny, any number of times (most notably when he tried to kill Johnny with the car bomb). Alexis continues to support Sonny any # of ways. Ironically, he always gets on trial for crimes he didn’t commit, but she clearly knows he is guilty of crimes as bad or worse. Christina genuinely has reasons for her anger and blackmail that go far beyond the usual kids (wouldn’t having your father point blank shoot an unnamed cop in the chest even if he didn’t turn out to be your half brother do a number on you?)
That they all still love each other is very soapy and very human. But it only remains human if there are some consequences for people’s crimes and behavior.
The reality show is a neat device for both playing out those issues of guilt and forgiveness–Alexis is a mob lawyer and that she only thinks of that when she is embarrassed to have that said on tv might get her character back to the smart conflicted woman with integrity that she used to be.
If Sonny is to stay on this show and have a role beyond setting violence in motion, then at some point he has to face what is evil about his life that he doesn’t want to see the light of day. I think his redemption if possible is more likely to come if he can see that Connie’s “crimes” are in reaction to his violent life and not just from craziness.
And by showing how painful it is to have true sorry sensationalized, when the cameras kept rolling when they learned of Sam’s “tragedy”, Christina may have already learned a lesson, and maybe we as an audience can ask ourselves at what cost are we voyeurs to people’s real drama.
OLTL’s soap within a soap fraternity row was sheer entertainment, and the way it was revived toward the end of oltl’s run showed all the glories and absurdities of the genre.
This reality show within a soap has the potential to move character forward without the benefit of guns or car crashes. And it might be a context for commentary on our culture’s sick fascination with real people’s pain.

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?
