Monday’s episode of General Hospital provided many stellar two-person scenes and plenty of drama. First, Sam (Kelly Monaco), is reeeling after having kissed and trying to jog her husband Jason’s (Billy Miller) memory after he visited her at the Drake house. Later, she comes clean with her fiancé Patrick (Jason Thompson) about Jason’s visit. When Patrick tries to cope and figure out what Sam was hoping for; was she hoping by kissing Jason that he would recall their lives together, Sam is conflicted and tries her best to answer the difficult question. Clearly, Patrick knows that things just took a major nosedive in their relationship.
Next, Patrick is blindsided by a urgent phone call from Tracy (Jane Elliot), who stumbled upon a horrifying scene in the park. Emma was about to be kidnapped by some woman who is clearly working for the people (Helena?) that are holding Robin (Kimberly McCullough) hostage in a lab/room somewhere, while she works on some mysterious medical cure. Is it for Helena? (Remember Nikolas’ (Tyler Christopher) claim to Jason within this episode? Could that be another lie, or the truth?) Robin from afar is watching the harrowing circumstance as her daughter fends over her kidnapper! When Patrick happens on the scene in the park, Emma is in tears, afraid, and upset. Patrick is devastated. Emma is also upset to learn that she may now lose another mommy since Sam and Patrick’s relationship might have just tanked, and she already had Robin leave her, too. The scenes were played to perfection by Jason Thompson and Brookly Rae Silzer. When Thompson leaves GH, this will be a major duo whose on-screen magic will not be captured or repeated again, and that is heartbreaking to think about. Jason and Brooklyn portray the best father/daughter duo on daytime drama, period.
And in the first round of showdowns between Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Sam, the woman are both clearly letting each other know where they stand. Elizabeth is trying to ensure that Sam will not push Jason to try to remember and let him be. Of course, Sam does not know Liz has been conspiring for months and keeping her from her husband. Liz stands firm that Jason is in love with her now. Sam snaps back and let’s her clearly know that Jason is her husband, and she is not going to let it go. She wants Jason to rememember who he is, and then let him decide on an even playing field, if he loves Liz … or Sam? This was also a very solid scene delivered by Rebecca Herbst and Kelly Monaco.
And then there was CarSon: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Laura Wright (Carly). Sonny is now pushing Carly further and further away, and lashing out at her. He is upset with her still for missing the custody trial for baby Avery, even though she brought Jason back to him in the process, and did not know about the moved up court date. When Carly tries to have rails installed in the Corinthos house to assist Sonny to get around via his wheelchair, he is not having it. Clearly, Ava’s (Maura West) dispicable words to Sonny in the courthouse about him being less of a man has gotten to the mob boss. As always, the CarSon scenes were nicely played by this dynamic duo.
So, what did you think about the scenes between Patrick and Emma? Sam and Elizabeth? Carly and Sonny? Do you think Patrick and Sam are over and done for good? Will you miss Jason Thompson’s scenes with Brooklyn? Who are you rooting for Jason to end up with … Elizabeth, or his wife Sam? Share your thoughts on yesterday’s episode below!
