In this week’s newly released promo for General Hospital from ABC/SOAPnet, it looks like Michael (Chad Duell) may have made it in time to break up Kiki (Kristen Alderson) and Morgan’s (Bryan Craig) “I do’s”, or did he?

Connie’s story and revelation that Kiki is not really a Quartermaine rocks Port Charles and turns it on its ears, and sest up what looks like people being pretty angry with Ms. Falconeri!

Now, since Kelly Sullivan is departing the show as Connie in the coming weeks, will the character meet her maker at the hands of someone in Port  Charles? Well, in this new clip, AJ (Sean Kanan) seems not to happy and chokes out Connie, and Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene with a gun!

Do you think someone will be responsible for Connie’s final exit in Port Charles? Do you want Michael to get his Kiki?  Share your thoughts after you watch this week’s General Hospital promo!

I hope this isnt going to be a ‘Who killed Connie?’ unless Morgan does it and is sent to prison…i really want Connie to leave alive in case KS can return in the future. However, i dont feel she will be unemployed for long. Maybe she could play Kristen on Days?

I can not stand Morgan, but don’t want him to be a killer, it would be too much. But he needs to get treatment for his gam ling addiction at a live in facility and come back with a more appealing personality and different actor

But if Morgan does go to prison…some inmate could attempt to beat him, and its Johnny(if Brandon B. comes back for brief story arc) who comes to Morgans rescue and protects him, winning Sonnys approval but can Sonny trust him…maybe, maybe not.

People said similar things about Chad Duell when he took over the role of Michael.

But, the difference was that people liked the character of Michael, and I can’t stand the current character of morgan. there are no positive attributes that I can see. There i s nothing to engratiate him to viewers.

Morgan really has become a whiny little puke….about the only positive thing he has on the show is his relationship with Alice……they have displayed such a cute rapport, especially during yesterday’s show. Love how she championed “Mr. Morgan,” plus “AJ,” too. Who needs a guardian angel when you have “The Dominator” on your side???? One scene I am soooo looking forward to is when Monica/Tracy finally bounce Ava’s sorry butt to the curb and Alice is the one doing the deed….hope that happens VERY soon!!!! She needs to leave the Quartermaine mansion NOW! It ain’t some cheap hotel that befits her kind…..

Alice is fun to watch…Tracy fired her but Monica will keep her around.

Connie is a great actress . It is a shame they didn’t just let her move to europe where she could of came back. I’m sure AJ is going to get blamed it will probably go on forever. Please bring Robin and Jason back. Recast Jason if u need to.

But who would be a good recast for Jason??? Especially given that he and SeanK always had such a great resemblance as half-bros? Would have been cool if SK had initially returned to PC as “Jason,” although I really like him as “AJ,” too. Plus, I am loving Sam with Silas…..just cannot see a place for Jason right now. Maybe a year or so down the road….after Sam (and Liz!) are firmly ensconced in committed relationships. By then, “Stone Cold’s” reappearance could seriously compromise both ladies’ new loves, and SB will most certainly have worn out his welcome in Genoa City….he doesn’t seem to be that big a hit there from what I have read.

I agree I really still miss Robin and Jason- their presence on GH was special. It is definitely different without them. I DO NOT like Patrick with Sabrina – they lack chemistry!

Totally agree with you on that last part…..simply cannot understand how the ptb’s ever thought that someone as lame, immature and irritating as Sabrina would be a character that viewers would take to….particularly with Patrick! It’s not as if there weren’t enough other more eligible and appropriate ladies with whom he could commiserate. This is one HUGE mistake that I truly wish they would just admit to and correct asap….I still think Dr. O. should eliminate her!

I think Dr. O is Sabrina’ mother…. ? yeah? No? the way she looked at Sabrina and perused her…. what was it… she said…. simple pretty.

too bad to see Britt being slapped by her own mother…

but… you can see the angst in Britt… and that she’ll be reformed… and could pave the way for Britt and Nicholas.

it’s sad to watch Patrick and Sabrina… he’s no longer the reason I watch GH.

as britt said to Dr. O…. it’s clearly not Patrick’ child… so… must be Dante and Lulu’.

anyway… back to Patrick…. he looks like he’s in pain… and or phoning in his scripts… there’s no excitement. Mother Theresa Sabrina… doesnt have all the answers.

Re: “Patrick”-I think Dr. O was just perusing Sabrina to see what on earth could be attractive about her to Drake Jr….the “simple” “pretty” comment was almost a putdown…obviously Britt is much more beautiful in the conventional, model-like sense…her eyes are very intriguing!!! And I also think it was a backhanded slap to her daughter that such a lesser creature was able to wrest Patrick’s affections from her…”Mutter” is always sizing up the situation and plotting her next move: God in heaven, I hope it is to remove Sabrina from the equation…by whatever means necessary!!!! Been praying for her removal since Day One……

I totally agree about Kelly Sullivan bei g great and much as I’m not a AJ. Fan I hate. Trials and the wrong person being blamed. They should not kill Connie . She should just leave town because so many are mad at her. So she can come back

Hope AJ doesn’t kill Connie. We know Sonny would kill AJ then. So happy Kiki is outted as not a Q and hope Michael stops the wedding. Then gets to talk to Kiki about the truth. But Michael doesn’t know that his bro knows that already. So I’m guessing Kiki will still marry Morgan (the disaster). Loving Alexis and Julian together.

I had a strange vibe that Connie was a goner the minute it was revealed that Derek was Julian Jerome. She has to be murdered—- there are too many suspects for her not to be. AJ, Morgan, Ava, Julian to hurt Sonny– even Sonny, I mean she betrayed him right? I guess even poor old Olivia could be suspected– jealousy over Sonny. I would even say Franco if he wasn’t so laid up. So yeah I think poor Connie’s goose is cooked.

I’m sooooo loving GH!!!! I THINK A WHO KILLED CONNIE WOULD B GREAT!!! THIS IS MY FAVORITE
SOAP!!!!!

this show is just to good 4 words,,,the people at young and restless should sign up for classes,,,,,how to keep a soap opera interesting..

jmh, well its rumored that connie gets murdered dies in sonny’s arms. of course sonny going blame aj for her death. i bet julian murders connie. cant wait for showdown between julian and sonny. that will be emmy worthy. love connie and derek scenes. go elizabeth slapped tracy 4 betraying your man.

Only Sonny has the right to be upset with Connie. I believe she did the right thing. Carly and Sonny are wrong to stay quiet so Baby Boy Morgan feel better. They have no passion or concern over the fact that Kiki is marry to the man she doesn’t love. What a loveless marriage that will be. I will be missing Connie. I hope they don’t killed her off. But I do want Sonny with her cousin Olivia.

GH IS ON FIRE THIS WEEK!!:) CANT WAIT TIL TOMORROW

I think it is a shame that Connie is being written off the show, she is a fantastic actress and I would have liked to see her and Sonny actually have a real relationship. I hope they do not “kill her off!” So she can come back in the future.

This is soap land and if and when her character is needed again in the future they will find some way to bring her back to the land of the living, if they do kill her off– I mean how many supposedly dead people are wandering around PC right now? Franco, Julian–for example. I never believe anyone is actually dead on a soap anymore. LOL.

although gh has been rocking lately, this is not a storyline i’m looking foward to, i’m so upset gh chose to get rid of Kelly sullivan, its a big mistake!

I hope they don’t kill her so Connie can come back some day. She is a great actress and has great chemistry with many of the actors. She would make a great Phyliss on Y&R!

I am afraid you may be disappointed.( Possible Spoiler alert!!!!!!) there are several websites that are claiming Connie will be killed and it will be a who done it storyline.

They can “kill” Connie off, just as they killed off AJ, and how many other characters on how many other soaps? The ultimate shot at Sonny by the Jerome’s would be to make him think Connie is dead only to hold her captive. They can bring her back anytime!!!!!

C’mon Liz, give it to Tracy, that bitch needs a beating!!!! I miss the real hell cat Liz!!!!

LOL.

love YOUR quip about Tracy….

LOL! “…that bitch needs a beating”.

as good as she is…. Jane Elliott.

and she is the backbone…. comedic timing… and she’s all that…

ponder’ing… what if she did something else? quipping her hilarious read of scripts is one thing… but… when was the last time she had some meaty substance… ie: other emotional context… outside of ELQ and Luke?

it was what I was hoping for, when she was paired with Joe, Scully Jr.

i’d like to see her reach in to her self…. insecurity… loveless… loose her steely resolve…. something… she’s that talented…. not waiting in the wings with Luke… whilst he’s emmy realed.

Tracy is as Tracy does, she simply cannot help herself!!! She has her brief moments of introspection, then bounces right back to her default setting of mirthful malevolence….hey,.if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!!!!! Still, I have to admit it was oh so satisfying to see little Nurse Liz gather her gumption against La Quartermaine during the b-slap showdown. That being said, I was equally ecstatic over Ava’s epic expletive-laden (and most unladylike!) meltdown on yesterday’s ep. It really was quite gratifying to see her finally getting her long-awaited comeuppance after all that pathetic scheming, although it does make one question whether a ride on the cray-cray train to “Heatherville” is booked for Ms. Jerome’s near future…then again, perhaps she has already been, and is a previous acquaintance of the “BLT Queen” herself…she did recently mention that she had heard about Kellys’ most famous and beloved sandwich!!!! Hmmm….on another subject, love your usage of the word “whilst!” So veddy British and erudite….

My guess is if they kill her off– if she does return in the future they will say that they faked her death in order to put her into protective custody somewhere so Ava wouldn’t kill her for real for revealing Kiki is not a Q. Lots of way to die and come back on a soap. LOL

Actually Mary, on GH there is a saying ….. NO ONE IN PORT CHARLES EVER DIES… MAAA HAAAAA HAAAAAAA .

Dont think she will die….she will survive and leave town…

GH is ROCKING! The show today was great.

Looks great!!! Looks like Connie may go out with a flame rather tha a flicker! GH is the best and can get past some of these annoying characters when we get some real story and drama and emotion. Let’s keep Franco quiet in his hospital bed for a few more weeks and Taylor and Brad and Brit can be wherever and let the games begin!

There is no need to kill Connie. Except for a who-done-it story line. Booooo.

GH.

#1. What happens to Daniel Edward… is still, thus far… my only reason to watch GH.
#2. What TPTB do with the talented Kelly Sullivan. “Please don’t kill her off”. SHE makes everyone around her look good. intelligent, charismatic… sensual… a keeper. if this is for a ratings ploy – that bait and hook. at the expense of not having connie and or Kate in the future… I’ll be so dissapointed in the production of GH. DAYs are you interested?
#3. Julian Jerome. his presence is giving Port Charles a much needed adrenaline. va va voom – smoking hot. if they play this right… it would make Ava more bearable? likeable. reason to stick around… now that she has no more stake in the Quartermaines… altho… I thought she had potential with Franco. I certainly hope Julian doesn’t fall for Carly like every man does. I do agree with Shay – that Alexis may now find her MAN in Julian… dang he’s mine.

Alice is a dream…. her mother hen’ing AJ and Morgan.

Olivia – finally… you’re looking hot… no more wash and wear…. loved your hair and that green dress.

Sonny. Oh! this smarts… very atypical, of what happens to the women on soaps… so reminds me of Y&R… ie: bland so over Victor and even just jack. Sonny, declares… it’s for my kids and family comes first… he’ll justify… and we’re to accept that at the expense of Connie… she clearly told him the facts… and it’ll still be our loss.

Patrick….Dare I ask, but does it seem that the most glowing reactions to “Derek/Julian” seem to be coming from a certain segment of the male population???? As a female, he simply doesn’t do anything for me, but he appears to be quite a hit with the boys!!!! Hope you don’t mind the question. P.S. He’s ALL yours! ; )

I cannot think of anything that would make Ava more bearable, except her assuming room temperature. That being said, she did have a smashing dress today…great color, style, etc. And it was nice that she finally covered her arms…for once!

It was just as I thought… after seeing yesturdays epi….

“Sonny”….. the man…. reeling at Connie…. for putting the magazine first…. and telling her… you don’t have kids…. blah, blah, blah…. it was so obvious… and just made this so dumb for Kelly Sullivan….

she told him the truth from the get go…. and i have to even add Carly said the same as well.

this isn’t how you raise your kids… pit one over the other…. Sonny’s poor excuse… Michael is capable of handling this…. Morgan’s losing it… blah, blah, blah…

it was agonizing to watch…. and of course,,,,,AJ showing up at the door…. it was Tracy who told Connie to print the truth.

I love a good murder mystery. Just dont drag it into 2014 then it tends to become boring.

General Hospital – Is now one those shows, that you love or Hate. THE NUMBER 1 THING THAT I HATE MOST OF ALL: FRANCO, AND BRAD. If they can find a new character, for Roger Hwarth to play in the Quatermaine Family. I don’t find it interesting. The show has gotten better, but it’s sloppy when it comes FRANCO. The character. I mean. If they could loose FRANCO, some way within the show. Instead of killing off Connie, and keep Kelly Sullivan her acting is superb, excellent, amazing. I would let Connie stay on and kill off Franco, FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL. Then we could do a WHO DUNNIT. MYSTERY STORY. AND WHAT I LOVE THE MOST: is the the New Couples, with 1.) Nikolas and Britt, 2.) Patrick and Sabrina, 3.) Silas and Sam, 4.) Sonny and Olivia, and a possibility 5.) Alexis and Julion again. I think he might be the guy, that could pull Alexis out of her funk with her bad luck with guys. IM HOPING FOR:
1.) Lucy and Scotty 2.) Luke and Tracey or 2.) Luke and Laura. I wouldn’t mind either one, with Luke. And if it means a recasting of Jason: The show needs Jason back ASAP. I had the biggest crush, on Jason more than any other character. On the show. I wouldn’t mind a recast, just as long we have a Jason. And ROBIN NEEDS TO COME BACK ON, JUST AS MUCH AS JASON NEEDS TO BE ON THE SHOW. ROBIN can finally be with her family. What if the male character, that’s being held hostage by the same people is Jason, that have had Robin all along. Then these 2 can come back together.

Omg !!! I totally agree. I hate Franco . Didn’t like him when James Franco was playing him, I can’t stand him now that roger Howarth , a great actor, is stuck playing this ridiculous character. Kill off Franco, bring back Jason and robin. I do like that they are making Britt more likeable. I love her with nikolas . I wish Kelly Sullivan was staying !

REALLY! I totally cannot stand Franco-never have been able to. Awful character from the beginning. I speed thru his scenes-I don’t care who plays the part. Get rid of him. Bring Todd back to GH for Carly. I am loving Julian! Didn’t he play Storm on B&B? He seems so much sexier now! I would LOVE for him & Alexis to figure it all out & get together.

I have always liked Julian Jerome… The one sane member of the Jerome family… He was originally played by Jason culp . And yes he did play storm Logan on B&B. I REALLY wish they would get rid of Franco and Morgan .

Michael has already lost two loves, please let him win this one. Morgan is a spoiled brat, send him packing!

Totally agree. Can’t stand Morgan. Send him packing and please bring back Nathan parsons as Ethan , or Jason, and Kristina. I find Morgan a whiner, very unlikeable .

it just doesn’t make sense….

#1. Morgan asking his dad… Sonny… to let him keep the secret..

Connie and Carly… both…. spoke up to Sonny… and now the fallout is losing connie…

however, that happens.

to pit one son over the other… ok it’s a soap.

I hope this hangs over Sonny forever.

ie: this doesn’t bode well… for Sonny and Olivia as well…. too much baggage.

Actually think of Michael and Morgan as the “Dumb and Dumber” brothers. Neither one sets the world on fire, and Morgan has become a major, major annoyance…his thing with Kiki is bordering on obsession, and I have a feeling it won’t be pretty if/when his scheme for the quickie marriage doesn’t come to fruition. As for Michael, I have always found Duell’s single expression to be one of “frozen stupidity,” so I try not to pay too much attention to him, and I truly believe that if it were not for his real life relationship with KA then we wouldn’t even have to consider their current characters as potential partners…the whole thing was just pre-fabricated from the beginning to please the actors who obviously want to work together in a very bad way…the best idea would to be to free “Kiki” from her present persona/storyline and give her an entirely new direction based upon the discovery of her real identity. Let her go back to blonde and find someone new for her….maybe a returning “Ethan” if he sticks around awhile or who knows??? Just a thought…..

Good thoughts. I agree. Laughed out loud over the “frozen stupidity” comment but OMG IT IS SO TRUE! Ha! Michael pretty much has that same expression no matter who is talking to or what they are talking about. Seriously. I would love to see Ethan come back. I love Alice & Tracy-anything to do with the Q’s & the happenings at “Monica’s house”

I hope michael gets to his Kiki in time !!! But seriously, can we please call her Lauren ? I find the Kiki name annoying.

I think Connie might be killed off. So many of the characters are angry at her ; a.j, Morgan, sonny , Ava , Olivia, and lets not forget about her alter………..

I dont wont Connie to leave at all 🙁 Mabey Morgan could leave he so annoying, kid this kid get a job, I am however enjoying GH it’s been so great and was excited to see Sean Donley and Holly on the same day, i cant wait to see what is going to happen next.

ok, this isn’t going to win any praise from most, but as a mother of 4, I have to wonder if there is a more pathetic parent ANYWHERE besides Sonny Corinthos???? Really? your son needs to know you love him so you give in to his ridiculous plan to marry Kiki??? Wow. What parent hasn’t had a sibling say at one time or another, you always liked my brother/sister best??? Never fear, Sonny. You can always give that brat an unlimited line of credit at his online casino of choice — he would definitely love you then. And give your blessing to a nineteen year old kid who hasn’t made a responsible decision in his life, is living in his fiancee’s home, no source of income WHATSOEVER.

Just add that judgement call along with Sonny’s cowardice (always needs someone else to do his dirty work, unless he can shoot them while they are unarmed), and the fine example he sets for all his children (by the way, has he ever visited one of them EVER without some sort of agenda?), make him one of daytime’s poor excuse for a character.
Just my opinion.

You are not wrong!

Glad you enjoyed the “stuck on stupid” reference regarding Michael’s omnipresent facial expression….I have been carrying that observation around with me for ever so long and really needed to unleash!!!!! You know how that is…..!

I watched extra carefully yesterday’s GH, haven’t seen today’s yet but OMG Michael had THAT SAME DAMN FACE thru the whole show!

Let’s just say you won’t be surprised when you check out CD’s face in the latest episode….I have NEVER seen a whit of difference, and I’ve been watching pretty carefully since he joined the show….it was something that I picked up on right away, and in all this time I have yet to see any change of expression whatsoever!!!! It’s actually quite amazing….LOL!!!!

sonny fires at AJ and hits Connie instead…. that’s my guess. He’s perfecting his ‘aim at the bad guy, hit my gal instead’!

did the same for aiming at who, was it Alcazar?, and hit Carly, while she was giving birth

he needs one of those guns with the red dot, so he can actually hit the one he thinks he’s aiming for. te he he

You know, that was one of the creepiest scenes in daytime & that is saying a whole lot-the scene when Carly was giving birth on the floor of some mansion & got shot in the damn head! Yuck. Thanks (I guess, ha) for reminding me!

On direct tv I am not going to watch Disney Jr I amnot watch ing it all I care is my past and present soap operas I am not going to lose them ever again leave them alone o the woman’s entertainment channel is 260 I sure miss them a whole lot some people don’t care but the rest of us ladies do want soap net so we can catch up with them

There has been an outpouring of grief, sadness and remembrances for former General Hospital actor, Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin 2020-2022), who the world learned was shot and killed on Saturday in a senseless theft and act of gun violence.

As previously reported, Wactor was only 37-years-old. The incident, as told by Wactor’s mother to TMZ, which ultimately took his life, occurred when three individuals attempted to steal the catalytic converter from Johnny’s car. Once alerted to the situation. Wactor did not try to stop or interfere in the theft but the unidentified suspects shot him anyway and then got a way.

Many of Johnny’s former GH castmates took to social media in the last several hours with heartbreaking and touching words on the loss of Wactor. Here are just some below, and Michael Fairman TV will continue to update these remembrances as they are posted.

Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) – My heart is so utterly broken… Johnny was the absolute best. So genuine. So caring. Incredibly hard working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy. He always made sure everyone around him felt seen, heard and loved. I admire the man he was so much and I’m a better person for having known him. We shared so many special moments, both on and off screen, and I will forever cherish them deeply in my heart. You will be so incredibly missed Johnny… I’m sure you’re already busy taking care of everyone up there.”

Chad Duell (Michael): “Some POS scum taking the life of someone who’s making something of themselves, and an amazing person. So disgusting and infuriating. Don’t know what else to say.. just so wrong.”

Photo: ABC

Jon Lindstrom (Kevin): “When the tears slow down, I am literally sick to my stomach at this news. Johnny was one of those rare young men in this business who was kind, unassuming, humble, and always thought about other people. A talented young guy who just wanted to share that talent with the world. I wish I had enough love to fill the hole that his loved ones must feel right now, but I know that’s impossible. Johnny will be missed on this plane. For a long time to come. R.I.P.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis): “An absolutely inconceivable, enraging & senseless tragedy. Johnny was a lovely man. Condolences to his family & friends. May they find eventual peace & may his memory be a blessing.”

Finola Hughes (Anna): “Gutted…. 🕊️ sending my deepest condolences to his family 🤍 I feel I must add to this post. The shock is so terrible, for such a genuine young man to be taken so violently. I am incredibly sad for his family. He was a very hardworking person, kind and extremely respectful to his fellow cast members. I am so sorry for his loss 🤍 Johnny Wactor xxx”

Kirsten Storms (Maxie): “I’m in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don’t typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there. To Johnny’s mother and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Johnny was one of those rare “real individuals” that you almost never come across. I was fortunate enough to have some really good conversations with him where we discussed things I don’t typically open up about. For some reason, we talked about the deep stuff. He was a safe space for those conversations and, in turn, he would talk about his life. He genuinely cared about people and their journeys in life. During his time on GH I witnessed him work hard and truly have respect for every single person in our building. I just cannot believe that his life was stolen from him the way it was. My heart hurts. RIP Johnny”

Bonnie Burroughs (ex-Gladys): “I am heartbroken and sickened by this terrible loss. Johnny I love you. My heart breaks for your real mom and your whole family. The world is darker now.”

Perry Chen (Brad): Johnny Wactor was a beautiful, beautiful soul. So talented. As you can see from the promo clip, always up for anything. Funny as all heck. Fit as all hell but also loved ice cream and ate all the junk I did as well. We all were cheated of many years with him.

Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt):  “Johnny Wactor, you were one of the good ones. I’m so sorry this happened to you. RIP”

Photo: ABC

William deVry (ex-Julian): “Honestly, words can’t begin 2 express the sadness with which 2 convey my feelings towards losing another GH Alum. The senselessness of this lose is beyond description.

General Hospital’s Michael Easton Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Last week over several episodes, General Hospital, handed the ball to one of their longstanding MVP’s Michael Easton (Finn), and he took it all the way in for a touchdown. The backdrop was the lead up to, and then the heartbreaking death of Finn’s father, Gregory Chase (played by Gregory Harrison), and its aftermath.

Through it all, Easton gave every scene its weight, made every scene compelling, and brought us, and we are certain many viewers, to tears throughout it. There is no question come Emmy-time 2025, this is one of the performances that must be remembered, and Michael has the scenes for his reel to back that up.

The set-up was coming off of Finn’s brother, Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding to Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton). Gregory asked the nuptials be a bit fast-tracked to ensure he could be present for it, for he was suffering from the illness for which there is no cure, ALS.  At the wedding reception, Finn slipped and took a sip of a glass of champagne, which began to break his seven years of sobriety.

Once back from the reception, Finn and his dad, have the ultimate father/son talk, knowing they are on borrowed time. Finn and Gregory have also had a very strained relationship at one point; due to both’s involvement with Jackie Templeton. But with all that behind them, and in the present, Gregory was able to tell Finn how proud he was of him, and Finn said the same to his dad. There were tears, we all bawled, and then it was time to get Gregory ready for bed. Due to his symptoms from ALS, Gregory needs help getting undressed. Finn helps out his dad, before telling him goodnight. Gregory flashes back to his life and seemingly falls asleep, but he never wakes up.

Courtesy/ABC

The next morning, Finn finds him cold and dead in his bed and sits on the floor at his dad’s bedside and weeps. Overwhelmed and alone, Finn pours himself a drink from the bottle left as a gift by the Cerullos. He has now lost his sobriety, completely. Things get even tougher for Finn when his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love) comes home from school and he has to tell her that her grandfather died. He also had to call his brother, who was about to leave on his honeymoon, and tell him the bad news.

Courtesy/ABC

After having a bit more to drink, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) stops by and they have an argument over his drinking and his unwillingness to let her take Violet with her for the night, which puts a strain in their relationship. Later, when Chase and Brook Lynn show up they can both see that Finn hit the bottle. When Chase finally gets some one-on-one time with his brother, he is able to get through to him.

While mourning the loss of his father, Finn realizes he needs to get cleaned up and get to a meeting. For Finn, as he recounted, having to witness the paramedics taking Gregory’s lifeless body with them was something no son wants to see and was more they could bear.

It was all heart-wrenching, beat by beat. Easton gave us all the layers and complexities and took us inside what Finn was feeling and how he was trying to cope with this terrible loss and tragedy. For all of these reasons, and those cited above, Michael Fairman TV names Michael Easton’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.
