Fans of both One Life to Live and General Hospital were in for an emotionally draining and riveting episode on today’s GH involving Florencia Lozano! The powerhouse actress who has been known to deliver some heart-tugging performance during her time on OLTL as Tea Delgado, such as when she survived her cancer and the loss of her husband, Victor Jr., now in Port Charles had to endure the loss of her thought-to-be baby boy, Victor. In key scenes, Tea is informed by Todd and John McBain that her baby died and the baby she had come to love was Sam’s!
Throughout the episode, Lozano’s Tea struggled to cope, grasp, and was taken to the depths of despair, until she has no choice but to say goodbye to the little boy she thought was hers one last time! Kudos also belonged to Steve Burton (Jason) and Kelly Monaco (Sam) for some very tender moments reuniting with their son!
And if that was enough, GH managed to touch us even further when it was revealed that today’s was Robin’s birthday, in a bittersweet and emotional scene between Jason Thompson and Finola Hughes as Patrick and Anna.
But at the end of the day, it was Lozano who broke our hearts. And even though we have all seen the baby-switch storyline played out before, where a mother says goodbye to her child and then has to hand a baby over to the bio-mom, and even though some of the dialog we have heard before in prior versions of this tried and true soap opera storyline vehicle, it certainly was a showcase for Lozano’s acting chops!
So soapers, what did you think of the performance on today’s GH? Let us know!
