2011 may have been a dark year in Port Charles, but there were many great moments, both happy and sad, along the way. Soaps.com picked three turning points for a few beloved "General Hospital" characters. Feel free to share the moments that stood out to you this year in the comments below and vote in our GH Most Memorable Storyline Poll.
Jason and Sam's wedding:
After years of break ups and make ups, baby and fertility drama, brain issues and more than one mad man coming after them, Jason and Sam finally tied the knot. Of course, the couple did things a little differently and got married in a Chinese Restaurant, which turned out to be pretty perfect.
Luke's always had a fondness for booze, but things got out of hand when he killed Jake in a hit and run after having a couple of drinks. When he wouldn't admit he had a drinking problem his family tied him to a chair to try and make him face reality. It didn't exactly work, but it was a valiant effort.
Nikolas says goodbye to Lucky:
Thanks to Helena's DNA test swap, Nikolas thought Aiden was his son. When faced with the truth that Lucky was actually the tot's dad, he didn't exactly accept it, but agreed to step aside so as not to put Aiden through anymore turmoil. However, Nikolas couldn't stick around to watch so he took off, but not before sharing an insightful, humorous and heartfelt goodbye with his brother.
