End of show!
I loved hearing Monica talk about her history with Alan and Jason today. It got me choked up and GH hasn't genuinely moved me in a long while! I loved GH so much in the 80's & 90's. I was just a kid myself, but I remember so much of the show's history. Not too mention the terrific Liz, Jake and Lucky scenes. I'll take more scenes like that any day. Good episode today!
Have a great night!
