Kim’s Des­per­ate Move!

ABC Soaps In Depth - - News -

GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL’s Kim has turned to just about ev­ery­one in Port Charles in her ef­fort to save Os­car… but how far will she re­ally go for her son?

The In Depth Story: With Os­car su­ing his par­ents for eman­ci­pa­tion, his lawyer, Alexis, seems to have the kid’s best in­ter­ests at heart… but that doesn’t mat­ter to Kim. With the De­cem­ber 1 start date fast ap­proach­ing for the ex­per­i­men­tal treat­ment that could save Os­car’s life, time is run­ning out for her teenage son.

“Kim’s big­gest fear is that he will die if he doesn’t get treat­ment — and her big­gest mo­ti­va­tion is to save her son’s life,” Ta­mara Braun says of her charac-

ter, who sud­denly finds her­self bat­tling the per­son she loves most in the world. “She hates that there is dis­tance be­tween them, since they have al­ways been so close. She’s been on her own with Os­car. He’s been the man in her life. It’s break­ing her heart!”

It’s also been dif­fi­cult for Os­car, who has flailed in the face of his ill­ness and his mother’s per­ceived be­trayal. Not only has he pushed away ev­ery­one who loves him, but the teen is risk­ing his life to prove his in­de­pen­dence and ma­tu­rity. “I think a lot of peo­ple can re­mem- ber their own youth,” Braun notes. “We don’t all act out in those ways, but one thing we have in com­mon is that we all want to es­cape our pain.”

That’s all well and good, but Kim isn’t con­cerned with Os­car’s emo­tional pain right now. When it comes to sav­ing her son, Kim will take this bat­tle “as far as she has to,” Braun prom­ises. “Os­car is her ev­ery­thing.”

This week, as Os­car ex­plores what fam­ily re­ally means, Kim de­cides that des­per­ate times call for des­per­ate mea­sures. But when she makes a shock­ing re­quest of some­one, will it bring about the re­sult she de­sires?

Os­car may want to divorce his mother, but Kim is de­ter­mined to save her son’s life, no mat­ter what the cost!
