Monday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured some emotional moments as a few key stories took a step forward.
First, kudos to the performance of Kelly Monaco (Sam) as a conflicted Sam, who finally reveals to Jason (Billy Miller) that she is pregnant with their child, but comes clean about why she withheld the info from him. Yes, Sam iks scared for the health of the baby because of her potential exposure to Malaria while they were on Cassadine Island. Sam goes on to list the possible complications that might happen to the unborn child if that were to be the case.
In a tender moment Jason tells Sam, that they are in this together. Sam recalls the mistake she made when she became pregnant with Danny and did not admit the truth to Jason. The duo vow to not make the same mistakes, and be honest with each other. Jason tells the woman he loves that whenever she is need to grab his hand and he will never let go. Later, Jason surprises Sam with a marriage proposal! He tells Sam he wants to keep all the promises he made to her before, but couldn’t keep, alluding to him “dying” and leaving her a “widow”. He gets down on one knee and asks Sam to marry him.
And in another touching moment, while Carly (Laura Wright), Jax (Ingo Rademacher) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) do their usual bickering as Nelle (Chloe Lanier) is being tested by Monica (Leslie Charleson) to see if she could be the kidney donor match for Josslyn. After she is done with her tests, Nelle chats with Carly about her life. Just then, Monica returns with results. The tests reveals it’s possible Nelle could be the donor but the only way to 100% be sure is for Nelle to have a risky kidney biopsy. Carly, Jax, and Sonny will not allow Nelle to subject herself to a test like that. Nelle says she needs to think about it. When she steps away, Sonny lets Carly and Jax know that he put Spinelli on the case and looked into Nelle’s story and background, and the timing and the wherabouts of the clinic where Nelle’s kidney was taken makeit higly likely Nelle is indeed Josslyn’s donor. When Nelle returns ready to have the biopsy, Carly, Sonny and Jax tell her that it won’t be necessary, and that they have enough corraborating evidence that she is Joss’ donor. Carly calls Michael (Chad Duell) to bring Josslyn (Eden McCoy) to the hospital. Once there, they tell her that Nelle is her kidney donor and the woman who saved her life. Joss wells up in tears.
Elsewhere, Nina (Michelle Stafford) seems hell-bent once again on finding a baby that she can call hers! After getting kind thoughts thrown her way from Carly for helping find Nelle, Nina tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) she has another project for him and money is no object … find her a baby! Curtis fueled this proclamation when telling Nina since she can’t have a baby of her own, she can always have good friends! It looks like Nina’s desire to have a child are back in full swing.
So, what did you think about the JaSam scenes? Were you glad that Sam told Jason she’s pregnant? What did you think about Jason proposing to Sam? Do you think their baby will be OK, or not? If Nelle is truly Josslyn’s kidney donor, what is Jax’s connection to all of this since he had been less then forthcoming about Joss finding the identity of her true donor?
