GH Rundown for March 22 – 26:
Last week, suspicions were finally thrown Kiefer's way, Luke and Sonny had it out, and a familiar face visited Maxie.
It's about time.
I'm so glad someone finally thought of Kiefer as Kristina's attacker. It's really about time considering his behavior has been off since day one and many have witnessed it. I was really happy with how Carly dealt with her suspicions and talked with Kristina, although I thought Jason was too quick to dismiss her theory. I've really been enjoying Carly lately and thought her gentle prodding of her former stepdaughter was well done. Her scenes with Michael were equally as good, as she persuaded her son to stay on the island instead of going home to help his sister. And the fact that Kiefer was the first person Michael thought of when he heard about Kristina's attack was perfect, considering he's had many run-ins with the angry young man.
Speaking of Michael, the character is being recast again. I don't know whose idea it is, the actor's or the powers that be, but I think it's a shame. Drew Garrett has done a wonderful job portraying Sonny and Carly's son and has believably run the gamut of emotions during his time on the show. Share your opinion about it in our poll about GH recasting Michael.
Luke's got Ethan's back.
Like Carly, I really loved Luke last week as he told his son he was there for him whether he was guilty or not. Ethan certainly needs someone in his corner and if anyone should understand where one can go astray, it's Luke, so it made sense he wouldn't pass judgment on his son. Furthermore, his exchanges with Sonny were compelling to watch, as they are two fathers protecting their offspring with no questions asked, yet old friends who are now on opposite sides. Say what you will about Kristina falsely accusing Ethan - this is a great story beat. I imagine we will also witness Luke and his other close friend Alexis getting into it after she learns he went to talk to her daughter on Ethan's behalf. I really like Luke and Alexis' friendship and wish we could see more of it.
