General Hospital 3rd Commentary January 14, 2024
BJ, Michael Corinthos, Felicia Scorpio

This week, my heart resonates with the poignant tribute to Bobbie Spencer and the indomitable actress, Jacklyn Zeman, who brought her to life. GH deserves applause for bidding adieu with such grace. I anticipated maintaining composure, but the actors effortlessly pulled me into the vortex of their characters’ sorrow, prompting a few unexpected tears. Moments that left an indelible mark:

  1. The heartfelt embrace between Carly (Laura Wright) and Lucas, reuniting with Ryan Carnes stirred nostalgia, leaving me yearning for his continued presence.
  2. The GH Open ending on Jacklyn Zeman was a trigger for instant tears, encapsulating the essence of her contribution.
  3. Jane Elliot’s portrayal of Tracy, with her ability to elicit laughter and tears, resonates back to her days as Carrie on Guiding Light. Tracy’s conversation with Carly was a tearjerker.
  4. Brighton Hertford’s portrayal of BJ and the connection to the powerful storyline left me emotionally moved.
  5. Laura’s (Genie Francis) eulogy, a poignant ode that struck the right chords.
  6. Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) sharing memories of Bobbie and the Nurses Ball with Lucas, a touching testament to the character’s impact.
  7. Every glance at Kristina Wagner turned me into a puddle, a testament to her enduring presence.
  8. Felicia’s flashback to Maxie and BJ’s hospital moment added a poignant layer to the farewell.
  9. The revelation that the reporter was indeed BJ brought a profound sense of closure.

Honoring an actor of Jacklyn Zeman’s caliber and the significance she held for both the soap and its fandom is an art perfected by GH. Even compiling this list brought tears to my eyes.

In the realm of soap musings, Spencer’s revelation about Old Esme and the return of his father stands out as the best cliffhanger. The anticipation of seeing it all unfold next week adds an extra layer of excitement.

Witnessing Lucas and Felix’s return to the canvas raised questions about their absence and fueled a desire to see them play a more significant role in Port Charles, especially with Aiden’s recent revelation to his mom.

The decision of Gregory (Gregory Harrison) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) to remain friends is a commendable move, adding a layer of maturity to their dynamic.

A standout soap conversation unfolded at Kelly’s, now Bobbie’s, with Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly reflecting on their relationship with Bobbie. As a Sonny and Nina (Cynthia Watros) enthusiast, any mention of her name was conveniently overlooked.

As General Hospital continues its daily saga on ABC, it’s a testament to the enduring allure of soap operas. For the latest GH spoilers and a front-row seat to the emotional roller coaster, tune in and let the drama unfold in Port Charles.
