As someone who recently lost my motherin-law to Alzheimer’s, I want to commend GH’s Maurice Benard [Sonny] and Max Gail [Mike] for their brilliant recent scenes together. Their acting was superb and very realistic. They have made this story so true. Sonny trying to feed his dad and Mike just not responding, then out of nowhere he responds; Sonny wishing he could do more, not accepting what is happening in front of his eyes ... it is hard to let go and just let the disease take its course. At least in endstage Alzheimer’s. Emmy nods to both. I am going to miss Max Gail’s performance as Mike when he is gone, because if they want realism, he will pass away. Just brilliant!

SPARK OF INTEREST
I am intrigued by the dynamic between Laura and Cyrus on GH. There is an underlying tension that keeps you guessing and makes you wonder what’s going to happen next. He taunts her, but also clearly respects her power. She stares him down, but knows how dangerous he is to the people in her town. Laura has said it is up to her to protect Port Charles. A showdown between the mayor and Cyrus Renault would be must-see TV!
