Performer of the Week: Sarah Brown as Claudia Zacchara. We've known for a long time what a great actress Sarah Brown is. We've known it since long before we ever knew who Claudia Zacchara was, actually. But this week was pretty special considering Sarah was able to have Claudia actually tug at our heartstrings. And we were pretty sure our heartstrings were well out of Claudia's grasp, seeing as how erratic, needy, and kind of sad she's been in the last few months. But she always brings us back and reminds us that Claudia's crazy is rooted in some serious, identifiable pain. And her frantic concern -- and ultimate grief -- for her baby really got to us.
Runner-Up: Aaron Refvem as Morgan Corinthos. We've been impressed by this kid before, but that scene where he tearfully confides in Johnny about his mom's health scare and Michael's culpability in Claudia's accident really blew us away. For one thing: he cries REALLY well. And he reminded us how overwhelmed poor little Morgan must be. This kid's a real find.
