Congrats to Cameron Mathison (Drew, General Hospital) who was selected as the performer of the week. Learn more here--->>
Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) finally made it back home to Port Charles this past week and fans were excited to see Drew interact with his family and friends again. First up was a reunion with Sam and his daughter, Scout. Cameron Mathison and Kelly Monaco (Samantha McCall) definitely have chemistry and fans are excited about a possible Dream (Drew + Sam) reunion. When Scout doesn’t recognize Drew and turns to Dante, Cameron perfectly expressed the pain yet, understanding Drew felt at Scout’s reaction.
Drew later showed up at the Quartermaine mansion (with pizza in hand for Thanksgiving) and had a bittersweet reunion with his mother, Monica (Leslie Charleson). Monica was pleasantly surprised to see Drew and was hoping to spend Thanksgiving with both of her sons. Drew had to be the one to break the news to her, and the rest of the family, that Jason passed away while saving his life. Cameron displayed the guilt Drew felt spot-on: his pained face, clenched jaw, sunken and teary eyes, etc. Even when Monica hugged Drew after telling him one (Jason) doesn’t count more than the other (Drew), Cameron showed just how completely gutted Drew feels about the whole situation through his eyes and body language. That continued with his conversation with Ned; when Drew realizes he won’t have any more opportunities to bond with Jason. The Quartermaine’s make a toast to Drew returning home and Drew redirects the toast be for Jason; Cameron yet again showed the pain and guilt Drew feels through his eyes and tone of voice.
Drew reunites with Carly and Sonny, and Drew meets their daughter, Donna for the first time. Whenever Cameron smiles, it lights up the whole room. Drew, Carly, and Sonny have touching scenes discussing Jason and also their love for their children and how their children motivate them.
Also in this past week’s shows, Drew reunited with Maxie. Fans couldn’t help but speculate if this was a possible chemistry test between Cameron Mathison and Kirsten Storms (Maxie). Did they pass the chemistry test? A number of fans seem to think so! Drew lit up when he saw Maxie for the first time (as did she) and Cameron displayed Drew’s charm and charisma with her extremely well. Drew may feel like he has to protect Maxie since he knows Peter wanted to use him to hurt Maxie to get to baby Louise. During Maxie and Drew’s conversation, she almost let it slip that she knows where Louise is and Drew definitely catches on. Will Drew be able to put the pieces together?
Being a recast is never easy, but Cameron Mathison is making it seem effortless. He has been on the show on and off since the summer and he finally got to interact with a good portion of the cast just in this past week and knocked all of his scenes out of the park! Fans are looking forward to seeing more of Drew, where his story will go next, and how Cameron will take fans along Drew’s journey!

Alexis host Thanksgiving at her house and the Cassidine’s Thanksgiving could give the Quartermaine’s a run for their money in terms of dysfunctional family reunions. Valentin showed up which upset Spencer. Then Ava and Nikolas showed up, which made things tenser. Victor shows up and it is revealed to the rest of the family that Valentin is a Cassidine after all (since Victor is his father).
Valentin tells Anna that he is not Bailey’s biological father. She convinces him he needs to say goodbye to her for closure and he does.
Maxie doesn’t think Chase pretending to be Bailey’s father will work and that they need a new plan.
Austin meets Peter for the first time in the hospital when Peter is his patient. Peter picks up that Austin might be interested in Maxie as more than friends. Austin tells Britt he would like to continue to be Peter’s doctor to keep an eye on him.
Peter and Nina run into each other and he’s shocked that Carly hasn’t chased her out of town after finding out Nina and Mike/Sonny were romantically involved and then he realizes it’s probably because Carly doesn’t know yet; Carly then appears.
