Rot-ro! Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) is in big trouble now, thanks to her egging on the treachery of a “dying” Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) on Friday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital.
You got to love the performances of Constance Towers, who makes Helena the most delicious, vile, evil, woman on the soaps! As the story continued: Sam, Liz (Rebecca Herbst), Jason (Billy Miller) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) are all on Cassadine Island at Helena’s bedside, and Helena is propped up with oxygen tubes coming out of her nose, and the stage is set for some vintage and creepy Helena!
As Jason tries to get answers from what happened from the night he was shot and left to die in the waters of the pier, to Helena’s henchmen sifting him out of and saving his life, we ultimately don’t learn that much from the Cassadine matriach. But what did you expect, a full confession?
But while Helena has a mild distaste for her visitor Elizabeth, she has major one for Sam, particularily after Sam mouthed off to Queen B. Cassadine. Sam was so fed up with Helena’s games, she went on a tirade and blurted out to her: “She has no idea what it’s like to have a family. Everyone who was ever around you was desperate to get away from you. Isn’t that right? You delight in causing misery, because you’re jealous. Nobody ever loved you. That’s why Mikos went off with my grandmother, because he couldn’t wait to get away from you. You think there is this happy reunion in this afterlife. You are wrong. You are going to burn in hell. and I will gladly dance on your grave.”
Helena though was ready for a rebuttal, and she slapped the Cassadine curse on Sam. In fact, it’s the same one she threw on to Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura (Genie Francis) decades ago! The exchange started with Helena responding to Sam’s word by saying: “Brava! Brava! That is so dramatic. Allow me to return the favor, but you won’t be happy.” Sam says: “Oh yeah, well try and stop me.” Helena then lays the smackdown on Sam with: “I curse you Samantha Morgan. You, those who begot you, and those you begat, and all those who touch you. You and yours will never know happiness in this life, nor any other!”
Looks Like Elizabeth may come up out of this visit with Helena pretty much unscathed, and Sam’s life will be forever changed! Is Sam’s entire life about to implode? Will Helena reveal if she can reverse any mind control she had or has on Jason to help him get back his memory? Did you enjoy Sam getting the curse, or were you upset by it? Will Laura and Sam team up and break their life long Cassadine Curses? Is Constance Towers as Helena, the all-time best recurring character on daytime?
