TODAY: John Reilly Tribute Episode Airs on General Hospital

Courtesy/ABC

Friday on General Hospital, it’s time for all of us to say goodbye to the beloved John Reilly and pay tribute to him and the character he portrayed for many years, Sean Donely.

In story, a mystery is woven into the episode, and the story, as Robert (Tristan Rogers), Anna (Finola Hughes), Robin (Kimberly McCullough), Mac (John J. York) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner) as well as Reilly’s real life daughter, Caitlin Reilly, appear.

John Reilly died at the age of 86 back in January of this year and since that time the ABC daytime drama series has promised this installment of the iconic soap opera to honor him, but in very “Sean Donely” style given the character’s history with the WSB and espionage.

The veteran actor appeared on GH in the show’s hey day of the 80’s debuting in 1984 and staying on till 1995 and then making two more appearances in 2008 and 2013.

Watch the promo for today’s GH below.

Now let us know in the comment section if you are looking forward to seeing it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the episode and seeing so many great GH vets. Loved the setting, the eerie hallways, and watching Anna and Felicia have some quality screen time together. The only downer was having Peter Puke scenes interspersed, though Bobbi’s arrival rescued us. A great reminder of GH’s halcyon days.

Only real complaint I have about the episode is the fact that Whiny Heiny was involved at all, even if only for a scene or two. Aside from that, it was very well done, and focused on classic GH characters who actually knew Sean. Didn’t expect to see Tiffany on screen, given her health issues, but it was great that they managed to bring her voice in by telephone. Wouldn’t have been right to not include her in some way. Minor complaints about the people who were NOT there, but should have been. Frisco Jones & Lucky Spencer come to… Read more »

Lucky was not close to Sean, neither was Laura actually but I’m sure she was there in support of Tiffany. Sean and Tiffany left town about a year and a half after Lucky arrived with his parents. Frisco was friends with Sean but given the fact he didn’t show up for his own brother’s (Tony) and daughter ‘s funerals (Georgie), why show up for Sean’s? He’s being consistent.

Dennis M… At first I was worried how GH would handle this. I didn’t want anymore sad goodbyes. So like you I enjoyed it as well. And Frisco is always missing in action. Wouldn’t mind seeing Annie /Caitlin make an entrance into Port Charles. Be definitely not as Lulu.

John Reilly was fantastic as Sean and I remember him a bit with Tiffany and I’m sorry to hear of his passing. And, I’m sorry but I was heavily disappointed in this tribute, the only thing I truly enjoyed the most was the various flashbacks especially at the end with Sean & Tiffany’s wedding! That was a hoot and a holler. The story where most of GH’s veterans hop-skip and jump to County Kerry, Ireland from New York in less than a day… really? (well, it is a 7+hour flight)… But, wouldn’t it have made more sense for the memorial… Read more »

Excellent show! GH always does these tribute episodes well. It was wonderful to see all the vets together, so much of GH’s rich history on the screen at the same time. And I got a kick out of the story they told. It was a nice tip of the cap to the old days of GH, and the type of stories that Sean was involved in for so many years. I’m glad Kristina Wagner decided to return. Felicia was conspicuous by her absence for Maxie’s wedding. She looked great. Loved her scenes with Finola. So much history there. It also… Read more »

I absolutely had no idea who those people were (outside of the regulars)
I had no idea as to what it was about-
It made no sense to me, none at all.

Same for me, but glad the others enjoyed it so much.I had seen J.R on other soaps but wasn’t watching GH at that time. Someone suggested his daughter for a Lulu replacement but I think they are poised for a Dante and Sam pair-up.

Oh, I forgot that Lulu and Dante are no longer married, so it wouldn’t make a difference.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
