Starr visits a delusional Marty at St. Ann’s. As Marty’s memory starts to clear up she begins to remember Natalie’s secret. Jessica and Brody decide to marry right away. They convince Natalie and John to join them in a double-wedding. As Aubrey is about to tell the Buchanan family about Clint’s treachery, Clint stops her and apologizes for having disowned Joey. Cutter visits Dorian on a pretense and while he’s there the yearbook from the Paris boarding school Aubrey supposedly attended arrives.  He hides it from Dorian. The yearbook photo reveals that Aubrey Wentworth isn’t who she claims to be. Dorian surmises Aubrey has something on Clint.  Echo discovers that Shane is being bullied and he begs her not to tell his folks. When Rex and Gigi arrive, Echo keeps the problem to herself.  Rex questions Echo about his paternity, and that he’s considering getting another DNA test.  Echo warns him to leave it alone. Dorian and Kelly are worried that the requested boarding school yearbook hasn’t arrived so they can prove Aubrey is a fake. Dorian tells Kelly she thinks Aubrey had something on Clint. Dorian suggests Kelly tell Joey the truth about her feelings.  Kelly thinks if they don’t find something in the yearbook, it’s a lost cause. Aubrey and Cutter doctor the yearbook and Cutter slips it back into Dorian’s house on the pretext of a date with Kelly. Kelly and Dorian see nothing amiss and Kelly decides to give up on Joey. She kisses Cutter to seal the deal. Rex hints to Joey that Kelly has feelings for him. He tears off to find Kelly but sees her kissing Cutter. Clint gets a visit from Vimal who requests invitations to the double wedding. Clint instead intimidates him to find out who he told about the DNA switching and fires him. Vimal finds Rama at the spa, and she doesn’t tell him it was she who told Aubrey. Clint has a camera planted in Aubrey’s room. Bo and John try to get Clint’s men to flip on him but they don’t. Brody walks into it and John & Bo end up telling him about their suspicions about Clint.  Brody is troubled but won’t say anything to Jessica. Rex comes to Bo, troubled about Clint maybe being his father. Bo tells Rex all the horrible things Clint has done. Rex calls Dorian and lies, saying he did the DNA test and Clint isn’t his father. Jessica and Natalie try on wedding dresses and are excited about their bachelorette party.  Rex tells John and Brody they’re having a bachelor party. Natalie and Jessica have a bachelorette party while John and Brody say goodbye to their bachelorhood. Dorian and Viki clash with Echo. Joey and Kelly separately confess their conflict about each other to Shaun and Vivian. Aubrey admits to Rama that she used privileged information to blackmail Clint. A chance meeting with Todd gives Vimal the confidence he needs to stand up to Clint.

On their mutual wedding day, Natalie wakes from a nightmare about Marty telling John he’s not the baby’s father, while Jess has a nightmare in which she wakes up in bed with Ford. The girls put aside what they assume are pre-wedding jitters and get ready for the big day.  John and Brody also get ready at John’s place, where Starr shows up to tell John about her visit with Marty.  Hearing that Marty’s more lucid, Brody goes to see Natalie and suggests they tell John and Jess they slept together before Marty can. Marty flees St. Ann’s and shows up at John’s door. Kelly and Joey remain locked in the storage room, where Kelly finally admits to her feelings for Joey. Their near kiss is aborted when they’re rescued. Aubrey and Cutter review their plans and discuss their relationship, unaware that they are being recorded. Cutter discovers the hidden camera only after Clint’s man has retrieved the damning tape. With Langston’s help and the knowledge that James is longing for her, Starr finally realizes she must tell Cole she has to move on. She heads to Statesville, looking forward to starting a relationship with James upon her return, unaware that at that very moment things have heated up between James and Michelle.  Ford vows to be employed before his Valentine’s Day date with Langston.

As the double wedding fast approaches, Marty tells John it was Natalie who kidnapped her. John thinks Marty is still in the throes of derangement, but Marty insists it was the other way around. Marty’s foggy, though, about why Natalie abducted her, saying only that it had something to do with Brody. Natalie convinces Brody to keep quiet about their one-nighter. Rama plots her husband’s revenge on Clint Buchanan. Aubrey and Cutter freak out about the camera, fearing that Clint knows everything. Joey arrives and is forced to tell Aubrey that he and Kelly were locked up together in a storage closet all night. Kelly tells Blair about the night with Joey.  Bo threatens to expose Clint’s wrongdoings to the rest of the family.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Must Say Goodbye to Mike As Maurice Benard Delivers Heartbreaking Performance

Any of us who has watched their loved one slip further away from Alzheimer’s disease could relate to exactly what Sonny Corinthos (Mauice Benard) was feeling on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.

It is always a tough and horrific decision when families contemplate what to do with (in this case) a parent, and where is the best place for them to live out the remainder of their days.  Sometimes, it’s clear cut and easy, and sometimes it’s difficult.

In the case of Mike Corbin (Max Gail), Sonny and Carly (Laura Wright) gave him a home and safe place to be, but as the disease progressed and as Mike’s reality becomes his own, and has he has been losing more self-control. it becomes apparent that they need to be able to give him the best life they can now.

In story, Griffin (Matt Cohen) points this out to Sonny and Carly when they discuss the progression of the disease on Mike.  It is apparent that Mike wants to go live with, and be with his “girlfriend’ Yvonne at Turning Woods.  Sonny and Carly struggle to come to term with that fact, but know they must let him go.   It is tough for them to put Mike permanently at the care facility.  Sonny thinks he may have been too selfish by keeping Mike with them so long.  Ultimately, he arranges a room for his father at the facility.

Mike comes downstairs after packing his bags, and thanks them for taking him in.  Hey says, that they are nice people, but that Yvonne is waiting for him, so he is moving in with her.  Sonny tells his dad, he has a room at the Corinthos’ home any time he wants it.

In the most touching moment, Carly offers to drive Mike to get to Yvonne faster.  He really appreciates it, and Sonny decides to just let Carly do this alone, because it would be too difficult on him to watch his father check-in and have to leave him behind.

Before he heads out, Mike forgets his gloves and he goes upstairs to look for them.  Sonny decides to check Mike’s suitcase to see if they are in there, and begins to break down.  He sees the framed photo of himself and his father from the Nurses’ Ball last year, and packs it in Mike’s suitcase.  After Carly drives off with Mike, Sonny begins to cry.

We have to give kudos to Maurice Benard in these scenes.  Anyone who has been witness to watching a parent go through this most dreadful disease, could feel his pain.  It was a heartbreaking and raw performance.

So, what did you think of the scenes where Sonny must let his father leave his home and move into the care facility?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And in case you missed some of the scenes, check them out here.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Can’t See & Maxie and Nina Visit Nathan’s Grave

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, a now blind Ryan is freaking out, because as he is in the hospital (while Finn tries to figure out if the same virus that caused Anna’s temporary blindness caused his), he learns that Lulu is in surgery and still fighting for her life.  If she lives, she will name him as the culprit who stabbed her.

When Anna and Finn visit “Kevin”, Anna asks him if he ever worked for the WSB or DVX.  “Kevin” claims he did not.  Anna believes all of this is the handy work of a doctor who worked for the international spy rings.  Finn asks if “Kevin” had been in contact with something that wasn’t his recently, and it is then Ryan flashes to Lulu’s license, realizing he needs to find it and its in his coat pocket.

“Kevin” gets rid of Ava from his room, and attempts to get out of bed to get to his coat and locate Lulu’s driver’s license.  However, since he cannot see, the license goes under the hospital bed, and just as he is trying to grab it, Ava walks back in the room.

Meanwhile at GH. Jordan explains to Laura that the police found a bloody footprint going in the opposite direction from Lulu.  Valentin and Nina tell Charlotte that Lulu is in the hospital, and the little girl insists they go to her now.  Charlotte leaves with Valentin, Nina stays behind.

Elsewhere, Jason is underground trapped in some kind of built out setting to probably nefarious crimes. When Sam goes for help, the fire department shows up.   Sam calls her pal Spinelli!  She asks him to check the maps of pipes and tunnels under the city.  Spinelli reveals that the water system leads out to the harbor at Pier 55.  Jason also finds a small space that he is hoping to swim through to get to the other side of the pier.

Then, in touching scenes, Maxie goes to Nathan’s gravesite and reveals to her beloved late husband that she is getting closer to his brother, Peter.  She also admits she is scared to start a relationship with him.  She asks for a sign from Nathan if it is OK.  As she cries, Peter shows up with a handkerchief to wipe Maxie’s tears.  She admits she doesn’t know how to let go of Nathan and move on.  Peter assures her that Nathan will let her know when it’s time.

Later, Nina shows up and tells the duo about Lulu. They had to GH where Peter is then in question for the crime; being the last person they can substantiate that spoke to Lulu before she was stabbed.  Jordan also reveals to Laura that Lulu’s license is missing from her belongings.

Back at Nathan’s grave, a grieving sister, Nina, shares heartfelt moments with her late brother, missing him, and filling him on the latest in her life and Maxie’s.  One again, Michelle Stafford delivered in these scenes.

Finn shows up with results for “Kevin”.  He tells him the tests shows he has the same virus as Anna and he will need surgery to correct his sudden loss of his eyesight.  Finn also tells “Kevin” this good news: Lulu made it through surgery and will make a full recovery.  Ryan is in trouble and he knows it.

At the end of the episode as Sam makes it over to Pier 55, she spots Jason’s body in the water and jumps in to save him.  We fade to black.

Now, check out the emotional scenes performed by Kirsten Storms and Michelle Stafford below. Then, let us know, do you think Maxie and Peter should move forward with their relationship? How can Ryan get out of the predicament he finds himself in now? Will Lulu come to and identify “Kevin” as her assailant ? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS IS US Delivers Stunning Episode As The Big Three Meet Their Uncle Nick

If you caught Tuesday night’s episode of This Is Us, you saw television drama at its best, and one of the best installments of this heart-tugging series, doing what it does best – intertwining past and present day storytelling, and revealing a shocking truth that will have a ripple effect for the Big Three and Rebecca.

The episode was a beautifully scripted hour of TV called, “Songbird Road Part 1”.  The title refers to the address of where the very much alive Nick (brother of Jack) is living 166 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

In the past, we see Jack receiving postcards from his brother under the alias “Clark Kent” or “C. K.” and reaching out to him over an extended period of time, trying to reconnect.  Jack hides all of the postcards.  When one of them shows up at his home mailbox, and it reads “Last one”, Jack decides to take a Saturday trip to see his brother, and lies to Rebecca as to where he is headed.

In the present day, the Big Three set out on a road trip to find their Uncle Nick, now that Kevin’s journey to Vietnam and back has revealed that Jack lied to everyone – telling them that his younger brother died, when he is actually alive.  Seeking the truth and to locate him, Randall, Kevin and at first a reluctant Kate, set out to the address on the postcard Kevin has.  Rebecca does not want to go, obviously, struggling with the fact that Jack never let on during their marriage that his brother was alive.
