GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason/Six And Robin Come Face To Face On The Bridge!

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the on-screen reunion after five years of Steve Burton (Jason/Six) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin).  Through the years, fans of the soap opera have witnessed, first, the young love story of a young Jason and Robin and its transition on how they moved on to become dear friends, and at times, each other’s savior.

Now, where else to have the on-screen reunion, but on the now GH-famous bridge … that special place that has meant so much to key moments in their lives and relationships. When Robin sees Jason/Six on the bridge, she is surprised and confused, and yet not sure to believe if the guy standing before her is the real Jason Morgan.  This is especially complicated for her, because Robin says the man who has been known as Jason (Billy Miller) for the last few years took her place when she was almost blown to smithereens by a bomb at Crichton-Clark.

Robin goes on to say that the other Jason has the same memories as Jason/Six, after he explains that the other guy with Sam is indeed his twin!  Still she has doubts that he is the real Jason, and says perhaps the man with Sam (Kelly Monaco) is the true Jason.  However, that all changes when Jason/Six says to her if he would just believe him that would be “icing on the cake”. Robin then flashes back to the night of their first kiss as young loves, when she first explained to Jason what the expression “icing on the cake” meant … it means, “better, than the best”.

Looking at Jason/Six, and recalling that key memory forces Robin to admit that Jason/Six is the real Jason.  Next, in an emotional moment, Robin runs into Jason’s arms.  She says, “It’s you, Jason!”

Jason/Six goes on to say that Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) are attempting to dig up proof that he is the real deal, but he admits to Robin that in the end all he wants to do is find out who perpetrated these crimes against him and his brother.

It is always great to see soap vets, Burton and McCullough in scenes, and this was no different.  They have always had a very sweet and enduring on-screen dynamic.  So, were you glad to see the Jason/Six  and Robin scenes?  Do you feel you have any more clarity if Robin, Carly, and Sonny all believe Six is the real Jason … or… could all three be wrong?

MORGAN FARANTINO LOVE ROBIN JASON
MORGAN FARANTINO LOVE ROBIN JASON

I m loving SEEING these “TWO” EMMY WINNER’s as STEVE BURTON won his very 1st EMMY award for soap GH with 1 sl and the storyline was with ROBIN his onscreen SOULMATE JMHO IMO. I’m so happy BOTH are such great friends after how it ended and the way JASON “stare/with realistic/genuine happiness “relief” to see her/at the old infamous GH bridge was priceless. GOING TO REWIND IT AGAIN. another 1033 times. #ghrobinandjason #J&RForever

Grant Putnam

We were all routing for these guys back in the day and everyone wanted this scene to work out. There was just some awkwardness and I don’t know if it was the writing, the delivery or just something off between the actors and their chemistry. Something was just ‘off’ and I cannot explain it.

Soaphound

I suppose it was touching and well-acted, but it’s just another slap in the face to those of us who are team Billy. Lord, am I sick of people writing him off because the saint of Port Charles returns. At least Robin had the class to mention that newJason saved her life and has the same type of heart. More than he ever got from selfish Sonny, short-memoried Carly, or that harridan Diane (“I’ve already closed off YOUR file…I know who the real Jason is”). Ingrates! Heck, Patient 6 is handling it better than the rest of the town. Shame on Sonny & Carly!

Jeffrie

I so agree!!!The way they are all acting is so gross it makes no sense how they all forget the last few years I hate it!!!!

Rhonda

I hope for Billy Miller’s sake they let him be Drew.
He could shine as a new character all of his own. He really never was Stonecold to a lot of us.

Celia

Yes, yes, and yes……I do appreciate Steve Burton. He has been great so far….surprised me.
But, Billy is Billy….he will always be my fave, Soaphound.
TPTB should have never gone there—taking away the main substance of what makes Billy/Jason who/what he is, and just bounce it around…..in limbo.
Perhaps that is the reason Sonny and Carly never took to him……because he would not be dominated? Tamed by them?
Nevertheless, I cannot deny the impact Steve made on me. However, therein lies the crux of the matter…..this unfailing loyalty to Sonny and Carly seems to take over his better judgment, if he even has a sagacious thought in his head.
Six is the ‘puddy-tat’ to this heinous duo as Tweety is to Sylvester……so malleable in their hands.
The difference is; Tweety always outsmarts Sylvester. Duh!!

kym

Six needs to be Jason. I absolutely love the chemistry still after all these years.

Celia

@Kym.
Hey, Kym,
Absolutely agree. This is why I have always believed Billy Miller should have been cast as his own individual being; that is; someone else.

MB

There is no slap in the face. No one including Sonny and Carly are dismissing the good things that Billy’s Jason has done. They have all praised him. But one is Jason and the other isn’t. If they believe Steve is Jason what are they supposed to do? Are they supposed to pretend he’s Jason out of some kind of loyalty? So he can continue to live someone else’s life?

This is all just nonsense from Billy stans who are desperate for him to be Jason and I can’t understand why that’s important. He’s nothing like Jason and can just be Drew Q. There is no difference moving forward. He wants out of the mob, wants to run a company, so he can. And he can have Sam, the two are a snoozefest. Sam putting on a suit and sitting behind a big girl desk. Please. They can have each other.

Patrick

i’m not interested at all.. what happens with Billy Miller character involvement WITH Sonny and Carly… and Sam. this has been… a snoozefest

AFTER – seeing Billy Miller and Leslie Charelson.. scene @the Quartermaine cemetary plot.

the scene ends with so much heart
the scene ends with so much sensitivity

the scene belongs to : BM Drew ? and HIS mother… Monica

yeah.. I watched the scene soonafter.. as she went to the hotel where Steve Burton Jason was staying.. and it was just as moving…

as Monica is telling SB’ Jason… “It’s so good to see you”

GAWD – we get to see Monica

the magnetic pull.. from Billy Miller and Leslie … MAGICAL

this is ALL – I want

OK – @GH , HIRE Robin Christopher to bring that girl power.. to the Q

let’s see BM as Drew and Liz.. do over and better… make that Jake Doe tryst with Liz.. more playful… sensual… DANCE

Francesca Bruno

Very well put, MB. Your description of Sam is painfully true.
I am a fan of both Kelly and Sam, but her sitting there behind that desk as a publishing executive does distort the character, as we know her.

The same could be said about Lulu, the journalist? Oh, my. I hope she will make her pronouns agree with the subject. Only in soaps could people become experts with a pen without formal training, or enter Medical School without a College degree and pre-Med experiences.

I think you have summed it all up very effectively. Everyone will fit into his place eventually. Move on is right. But some drama needs to go through all the necessary soapy steps before that happens.

Harry

You make some really good assertions, MB. I don’t quite understand this team business. Can’t you love Burton without that love negating your love of Miller? I think there is room for both of these fabulously talented men.
I have appreciated Miller since his AMC days and loved how he just brought that Billy Abbott character come alive with an abundance of natural effervescence. Miller is that guy who enters a room and party begins just with his entering the room. That is why I never felt he was the right fit as Jason Stonecold Morgan who could enter the room and become part of the wall paper if he so chooses. Let Miller have his own character, let him be himself, let him do what he does best, let him be Drew/

rebecca1

I don’t think Soaphound means it’s a slap in the face to Billy Miller; rather Billy Miller’s character. It’s painfully obvious that Sonny, Carly, Diane and today, Robin are pulling away from him. They’ve understandably been beyond ecstatic to have “their” Jason back, but haven’t been exactly reassuring or compassionate to the man (Billy’s Jason) that they all called friend and claimed to love just weeks ago. So, yes, the character has experienced a slap in the face, over and over again. If he’s not who he thinks he is, then it’s all the more important that he still feels the love and support of people he thought of as friends…who are rallying around his brother and have vacated from his life.

Soaphound

MB, Rebecca said it best in her response. I don’t want Billy to be Jason at all. In fact, I can’t wait for him to get away from the toxicity of Sonny’s “world”. But if my “friends” referred to me variously as Sam’s husband (Carly), the stranger (Spinelli), that guy (Sonny), or the lovely sentiments of dear Robin (whose life he saved), “You’re just NOT Jason”, I’d be as angry as Drew/Billy was. Call me overly sensitive.

Patrick

I couldn’t believe the gall and disrespect by Diane

yeah.. she’s always out for the buku buck and high browing her legalese

granted… I LOVE HER

I just thought.. what the heck … what’s this obvious dump

I’ve seen Monica render her heart and home as his
I’ve seen Curtis befriend and support

even Sam isn’t believable… ? what’s she going to do… fantasize about her days of ole ? when she was tramping all over the globe.. with Steve Burton

it’s so dull and lame… as Carly is telling Sam… you are going to have to make a choice

I hope it’s that cut and dried – BAM just like that.. BM is Drew… and dances with Monica and Liz. oh.. and starts a new job @GH hospital

rebecca1

I think Sam’s been great, Patrick. I think she’s so confused that she’s almost repressed her feelings for Steve Burton’s “face.” Cassandra, Sonny, Carly, Michael, Monica, Robin…etc…all reacted way more than she did when she saw him. One would have thought she’d completely freak out and literally have to be sedated.

I just think her love for Jason was so strong…she mourned for him so long…and now she couldn’t bear the possibility that her current husband is not THE Jason. That would mean her entire relationship was based on a past that didn’t exist with him. At the same time, she loves her husband, whether he be Jason or Drew…and I think she’s afraid to admit she has doubts. Because then her love and loyalties would be divided and she’d be tortured. Which is understandable…

I AM curious to see how it plays out. If Steve Burton is Jason Morgan, the man she once thought was the love of her life, will she go back to him and his Sonny/Carly lifestyle? Or, will her love for THIS Jason be enough…with a more stable, safe, normal lifestyle, away from the business.

Dilemma. And then where does Oscar and the gorgeous Tamara Braun fit in? Will he remember his love for her? Accept Oscar as his son? (Which by the way would mean that Oscar is Michael’s cousin. Jocelyn’s brother’s cousin.) LOL…such a tight-knit community!

And, nope. Franco and Liz for the win. (Although Liz and Griffin were always such a cute looking could-be couple should Franco fall out of the running.)

rebecca1

oops! Not Cassandra…I meant Oscar’s mom, Kim.

Torrey

i’m done with GH after this story. I think it really sucks to do this to Billy Miller and his character…he’s been carrying the character of Jason Morgan all these years, and now Steve Burton decides he wants to come back and they just do this switch-a-roo?? I don’t like this, and won’t be watching anymore. The better twist would have been for Steve Burton to be Andrew, that way he could take on playing a new role. Oh well, I will strictly go back to just watching Y&R and Days!

Soaphound

I agree, Torrey. Did you hear Spinelli on Friday? Calling Billy/Jason “the stranger” and even implying he illegally obtained Aurora Enterprises and that Scout will now be part of SB/Jason’s family?! I’m surprised Diane didn’t have formal adoption papers ready for SB to sign and having Jordan arrest Andrew for corporate fraud! Oh wait, the year’s not over yet.

k/kay

All I know is Liz fell in love with Jake Doe treated him with respect the rest of the bunch including your precious Sam only decided to love him because they thought he was Jason and god forbid he stay with Liz. Just one day I would like to see someone anyone slap the holy you know what out of that screaming Carly and that husband who never looks anyone in the eyes

k/kay

As for the question I felt nothing!

Jimh

Those two do got on my nerves…i have to take an anxiety pill just to watch them!!!

aria

wow, i never thought about it that way, your right, liz did fall for him before she knew he was “jason”, and the “others” only gave him the time of day once they believed he was “jason”, although carly did like Jake doe too, in that obnoxious controlling way she tends to with anyone she “welcomes ” into her self righteous circle. Carly is the ultimate hypocrite.

rebecca1

Hi aria…I don’t remember it that way. As I recall, Sam was with Patrick (I actually loved them together) but she and Billy’s Jason started forming a connection BEFORE she knew he was Jason. If I recall she started knowing him when he worked for her father, he gave her a ride on his bike and it seemed to me there was a growing attraction/connection which both felt even though they didn’t act on it and each was in love with their respective partners.

So I do think by the time Sam found out it was Jason it all fell into place for her..the drawer, the pull, the attracton. Ironically, he probably won’t be “her” Jason Morgan…but still….the fact that he’s an identical twin and was programmed with the same memories would explain why she fell for him again.

In a way, the same can be said for Liz. I think there was enough similarities or familiarity that each woman felt that on a certain level they were drawn to him before his “identity” was known. And then, of course, their feelings only grew stronger when they thought he was the man each originally had loved.

I’m with you on Carly. Detest the character.

Celia

Agree, Kay…I said as much on a previous post.
Liz and Jake had everything going for them. The writers veered in the wrong direction.
The situation coulf have been remedied once she was caught in her own duplicity.
But, Sam “won”…. Why?…. Because she is Sam.

K/kay

If the writers really are up for this because everybody thinks he is Jason just because he has the old face me thinks Billy might be the true Jason especially the way Franco talks today and doesn’t he know the truth? Oh well hope everybody doesn’t kill each other over it before it is solved!!

Patrick

@ K/Kay , @Celia – PLUS

exactly… posts are always spouting clamoring.. for that story line original

when two hearts meet and wallah a love story for the ages

it was never forced… it was a natural progressive story that let your imagination LIVE through this newbie coupling

it was hot it steamed me out.. woah MORE please

jeremy

🙂 Awesome Episode 🙂

su0000

I’m getting tired of everything becoming stupid..
And– people being trolled into buying it..

Quote
” However, that all changes when Jason/Six says to her if he would just believe him that would be “icing on the cake”. Robin then flashes back to the night of their first kiss as young loves, when she first explained to Jason what the expression “icing on the cake” meant … it means, “better, than the best”.

Ok–
They BOTH have the same memory, that is fact.
So.. If SB/Jason has the memory of “icing on the cake” so does BM/Jason..
Both Jason’s have the memory of their first kiss with Robin and her explaining the expression of “icing on the cake” ..

That absolutely does Not prove SB is Jason. so, calm down … lol

Satan

Seriously, who is signing your paychecks to continuously spread the disinformation. Get over it.

su0000

hi Satan ..
what I said is Fact, they both have the exact memories, their minds are one.
They BOTH have the same memory, that is fact.
So.. If SB/Jason has the memory of “icing on the cake” so does BM/Jason..
Both Jason’s have the memory of their first kiss with Robin and her explaining the expression of “icing on the cake” ..

Again.. their minds are on and both have the same memories.
And as of now, nobody, which is which..
Also.. when we are told who is whom don’t take it to heart, many twists and turns on the way before this story ends..

Celia

As far as I can see, they do have the same memories, su. I said this from the onset….obviously, whoever toyed with them, namely Helena, transmitted the real Jason’s memories into the other’s brain.
So, who’s the real Jason? They are both so convincing, It’s kind of nuts…..very talented. Bravi.
Again, a person has his/her individual nuances….the tilt of the head, the walk, the VOICE etc…..
Seriously, I am intrigued by the story, but, really? ….I will follow along; it’s a soap.
All these people who have been close to original Jason, should know him inside-out…..it’s not that difficult.
I will throw all logic and perception to the wind, and play along.

Yvonne

You are completely right Su. And now Robin is joining the Sonny and Carly team, sad. Separately, no one writing on this sight should be personally insulting like Satan was to you. We’re all entitled to our opinion about the soaps and the characters, that’s what this sight is for.

Celia

Thank you, Yvonne…..but, there are the select few who will attack if one’s opinion does not live up to theirs.
I always respect su’s opinion….she’s usually right….more oft than not…

Teena

I think its about time things got really shook up & Jason & Robyn became a couple again!! Imagine all those possible story lines!?!

Darnell

Everyone knows that SB Jason, no matter how many twists and turns, is Stone Cold. Which leads me to my original statement. BM should want to be Drew. This characters history so far is untold and could detonate the entire city of Port Charles. There’s so much the writers can do here by giving BM something beefy to chew on. Wouldn’t it be great is they someone work the Loving murders into this chaos leaving Gwyneth Alden as Alexis’ biological mother with BM working in the background. Talk about a vendetta- Sam, Jason, Drew, Alexis, Robin, Luke, Lucky, LuLu, Laura and her mother. People have forgotten the day Leslie was found in that house sitting in a chair in front of a window. She was in the same catatonic state Laura was placed in. It was the same drug. Obrecht was the chief overseeing the Loving project for Ceasar Faison and Helena. This was all apart of this mind controlling experiment she used on several PC characters. Bring Helena back so Laura can kill her for what she put her family through. Come on GH, explore this and tie it all in and be done with Helena once and for all.

Rhonda

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Darnell.
Billy Miller and his fans (and I happen to be one of them) should want Miller to have his own character.
It wasn’t fair to make this naturally bubbly and bouncy actor try and fill Burton’s shoes.
Let him be Drew and everyone will like him better than Stonecold. Otherwise, he’s just a poor man’s Jason. Miller deserves better.

Soaphound

Rhonda, you speak truth! How i miss the goofy, devil-may-care quality that Billy brings so naturally. There was one moment, way back when Jake Doe was first recovering…he and Elizabeth were standing on the stairs above the nurses station, waving and carrying on with silly abandon and with Billy’s megawatt smile lighting up the room. That was vintage Billy! My only immediate concern is that now he’ll be grumpy and vengeful toward Jason, which is unfair and pointless. Let’s skip that phase and jump to an original, funny Andrew. Oh, and PLEASE let him grow that gorgeous hair back!

Lisa

I remain unconvinced P6 is the real Jason.
However IF he is the real deal – I still want Sam with Billy’s version.
I’m just more a Miller fan than a Burton fan.

Rhonda

Right, Lisa. I honestly don’t care whom Sam ends up with–the only thing I care about is that the actor we saw flesh out Jason Quartermaine and later, Jason Morgan, turns out to be the real Jason. He doesn’t have to end up with Sam.
Sam is kind of boring to me.

Jacob

My hope:

BM/Jason is original jason Q kidnapped in the 90s and have been somewhere for 20 years, partially studying as a doctor (maybe in iraq as a medic where he saw combat at one point thus Helenas grating “Soldier Boy” name). Is a businessman, aligns with the Qs, has clashes with…

Patient 6/Jason is Drew but became stone cold when replaced original Jason Q by Helena (or whomever, who cares) and is the person that we’ve been watching since the 90s. All his relationships stay in tact. Where has he been for five years? who knows/who cares but he’ll probably take over Sonny’s operation.

Thus there is a clash of brothers of business vs the mob as well as over Sam, Liz etc.

I’m giddy that I am in love with this storyline as much as I am and a little bit too.

Jacob

sorry, meant to write that as a doctor, original recipe jason q is able to move from business into medicine (this is a soap, it happens all the time) and Monica is able to finally have Alan’s son be a doctor at GH.

Fanny

Jason/6 & Robin have known each other since their teens, been through so
much together …Love, Life, Death…betrayal, forgiveness, hope.. A deep
abiding friendship that has lasted decades deserves to be true.
Patient 6 has to be Jason Morgan, otherwise this has all been another
“FLUKE-ISH” joke.

Harry

I could not agree more, Fanny.

rebecca1

But is he Jason Quartermaine??? THAT is the question…

Caroline Taylor

If Jason/Six isn’t the real Stone Cold I’m done

Satan

If Jason isn’t the real Jason, this entire SHOW is done. One look at the recent ratings tells that story. All those people didn’t come back to watch a bait & switch. Especially not one engineered to prop that piece of shit character laughingly named Frodd “Baldwin”.

Yvonne

It was a really great scene and emotional flashbacks are always great. However as Robin said BM/Jason has the same memories. GH should be fair and do flashbacks for BMs Jason having those same memories. It’s very unfair that they only do it for SB because he has the same face…making it easy for Robin, Sonny, etc., to say SB is the real Jason. Even if BM turns out to be Drew he shouldn’t be thrown under the bus as they’re doing. SB could very well be Drew because he would have been brainwashed BEFORE BMs version was hit by Ava’s car and lost his memory, thereby having the same exact memories. It’s not hard to think after living with Elizabeth and realizing he had been a slave to Sonny and Carly that BM/Jason would want to put his family first…even though he still continued to put his life on the line for them, which they have conveniently forgotten (the writers should be ashamed for omitting that and minimizing BMs Jason). Whether SB turns out to be Jason or Drew Carly and Sonny will hold onto him because he’s the version that puts them first before his own life and family….why would Sam want that guy. Now BMs Jason should use the “icing in the cake” line and have the doubters/traitors eat their cake, lol!

rebecca1

Good post, Yvonne. Not sure if you’ve read some other theories; mine included. That Steve Burton IS Jason Morgan…but was originally Drew. When Jason Quartermaine ( Billy) was in the car accident with AJ all those years ago…”Drew” was put in his place…and his new identity was formed aka Jason Morgan. Meanwhile, Jason Q was whisked away…probably lived his life as Drew…until he was taken by Helena and re-programmed once again. When he was hit by the car by Ava, he lost ALL identity, had no memories…but suddenly Jason Morgan and Jason Q’s memories started flooding back.

Convoluted; I know. But I think it’d be interesting. (If the years/time frame) all made sense.

Even with the same memories, all close to Billy Miller’s Jason felt he had changed; not so much the memories but his personality. So I feel it’s not just the pinpoint memories but his demeanor, attitude, gestures…his personality. That’s why I’m pretty sure Steve is Morgan. If it turns out that’s not the case that’d be an interesting twist…

I do agree that Billy’s character, not Billy, as been thrown under the bus by his “friends.” I and several others have felt that, as well. It’s heartbreaking to see how lost Billy’s Jason is…how rejected, confused, frightened, threatened. Monica, Sam and Curtis have been the only ones to stand by him.

Soaphound

Again, I agree, Rebecca. Spinelli’s betrayal was the most upsetting. I loved when Billy smiled sadly at him and said, “What’s wrong, Spinelli, don’t have time to say hello to an old friend?” Heartbreaking. And your theory is actually quite compelling. Certainly better than a lot of the dreck we get asked to swallow!

Timmm

To bad Jason and Robin didnt reunite last year, they might have spotted Sam at the bottom of the bridge!

Celia

HaHa…..and there goes that subtle humor, again.
I regret to say the scene means nothing to me, as I am ignorant of their past relationship.
But, I can, certainly, identify with the fans who have an emotional tie to their history.
Happy Thanksgiving, my T. Blowing you a kiss…..hurry up, catch it!!!!

Timmm

Caught it, back at you dear! Hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving!

Shay

@T and CC!!! Hope you both had a Blessed Thanksgiving! Sorry for the belated greetings….busy, busy!!!!

Peggy

My hat go off to GH writing staff. Believe style of this storyline be far more twist as turns to come ! Looking forward see were going lead next weeks head . something tells me few old faces about show up in town. myself been thinking of shocking ways that tell who real Jason Morgan . believe my way would tear Jason Morgan life apart . lead into quiet new storyline . looking forward next weeks head !

Sandie

I absolutely HATE this storyline,,,all this because SB wanted to come back?? I wasn’t a fan before,,,now,,definitely NOT

Patrick

General Hospital

GH’s Laura Wright and Wes Ramsey Talk Their Love Connection & The Demands Of Daytime

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

After presenting for the first time together, at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmys since they’ve been a couple, Laura Wright (Carly) and Wes Ramsey (Peter aka Henrik) of General Hospital have certainly been in the throes of a romantic, fun, and cherished relationship. The two former stars of Guiding Light reconnected last year at Emmy time. Now, sharing their over one year anniversary, Michael Fairman TV caught up with Laura and Wes to get some insight into what makes their relationship work amidst the hustle and bustle, and pace of both being on a network television daytime drama series, and with the pressures of Hollywood where often relationships between two actors seem to start hot and heavy but then fizzle out.

If you caught this week’s GH, you witnessed that the town of Port Charles has found out that Peter is the notorious Cesar Faison’s son, and the ramifications that will be felt for weeks and months and potentially years to come. Meanwhile, Carly is in all sorts of trouble, thanks to naughty Nelle (Chloe Lanier). Nelle is making Carly look awfully unstable and what happens next could change Carly’s life forever.

So, what do these two lovebirds have to say about their relationship and their passion for working on the soaps? Check out what they had to share below. 

Wes, you had met Laura originally years ago on Guiding Light.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Yes, 15 years ago in New York.

And what did you think of her then?

Wes: Well, I was smitten, but I had to keep it to myself.

You had to keep it under wraps, huh?

Wes: Yep!

Laura: I was married then.

Wes: She was pregnant with her second child.

Laura: And he’s a good Kentucky boy.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Uh-huh! But we would run lines in the green room and I would try very hard to make sure she didn’t catch me staring at her… too often. But we laughed, and had great conversation.

Laura: I would always say, “Wes, will you run lines with me?,” because I would want to run my lines.

Wes: We never had story together, but she always knew I was game to hang out with her for a moment.

It’s good when you’re in a relationship with someone and you can laugh with them. You seem to be able to do that a lot!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Laura: Oh, gosh. I think that’s all we do.

Wes: Yes, yes, yes, yes…

Laura: Like, we belly laugh. It gets to the point where people would think we were ridiculous. We’ll say things and just think it’s the funniest thing ever and people would be like, “You guys have a problem …” and we’re like, “Yeah.” (Laughs)

Laura, and then he comes back into your life years later…

Wes: That’s right, it was Emmy weekend 2017.

Laura: I totally was not expecting it at all. Even when I gave him my number I walked away going “huh…”

You mean you thought he wouldn’t call?

Laura: No, I didn’t feel that… because he hit on me hard. He’ll tell you that.

Wes: I still am hitting on her.

Laura: I remember I walked away quick after he got my number. I was like, “Oh, my God … I gotta go.”

Courtesy/Instagram

Wes: There was an assertiveness on my part that was for sure 15 years in the making. I did not expect to run into her. I also did not expect for her to tell me that she was recently single. In that split second, it was one of those, “stop the presses!” moments. Like, you need to give me your number, I’m taking you to dinner.

Laura: I go, “Oh, be quiet! Are you like, 32, because I can’t do that.” (Laughs)

Wes: And I said, “Far from it.”

Laura: He’s like, “I’m getting ready to be 40.” And I’m like, “I can do that!”

Then, on top of all of this, Wes, you land a primo role on General Hospital. That of Henrik aka Peter, Cesar Faison’s son.

Photo Credit: Courtesy/ABC

Wes: Yes, a dream come true.

Laura: I’m going to jump in and say it’s a role that he worked all on his own for. He had to screen test against 8 plus guys, 3 different auditions, 2 different days.

Wes: That’s true.

Laura: I can’t say strong enough that the best actor got the role. Meaning, Wesley is so talented and has the ability to give this character the depth, and emotion, and layers that it needs to tell the story that needs to be told. I just think he’s incredible.

So, did you know from the get-go who you were going to be playing?

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: I did not.

Laura: I did! (Laughs)

Wes: I’m thrilled that the writers have been giving me such incredible material to dive into.   Each month that goes by, it becomes more and more complex, and more and more layered and intense. I love the depth… I love the conflicts… I love the humanity… I love the desperation… I love the psychology behind it. It’s a very interesting story and a great journey to tell.

Laura: I was getting ready to say, where you mentally have to go to be the son of Faison and Anna Devane (Finola Hughes)! To blend that together is amazing. It’s incredible to watch.

You used to run lines together on Guiding Light. Do you run lines together now on GH? It’s like a full circle moment.

Laura: We do, and we carpool.

Wes: Something we were trying to manifest together. We thought it would be a lot of fun to work together one day.

Laura: The last week we worked, we didn’t. He worked all afternoon. I worked all morning. I was like, “Are they doing this on purpose?” I was so mad! I was like, “Why are you in the afternoon everyday?” (Laughs)

Wes: She lost her chauffeur. (Laughs)

Laura: I did! He always drives us to work. I also love when we both have afternoon calls, because we love having mornings together. So, I didn’t get my morning, nor did I have my chauffeur!

So, two actors can have a good relationship? You see so many Hollywood relationships with actors and they go bust. But that’s not always the case …

Wes: Oh, my God, yes.

Laura: I’m going to say this; I think I can see it being more difficult for daytime

actors, because the work we do is so intense. I know the weeks he’s getting ready to go into, and I’m getting ready to go into. Where we go emotionally and psychologically to tell these stories, on the level that we tell them, as quick as we tell them, you kind of have to become really in a headspace. The fact that we can …

Wes: … the long hours …

Laura: Yes, and exhaustion! You really have to go, “Wow! It’s not about me right now. It’s about us individually as actors.” Thank God, we know the workload. I know what he’s getting ready to go through.

Wes: I have always had so much respect for Laura’s work. On Guiding Light, I’ve always been in awe of what she’s capable of doing. So, the level of respect is obviously there. But also, the understanding whatever it is that you need from a personal assistant in one moment… or a life partner in another moment … or a best friend in moment … or whatever it is in order to get through the day-to-day and the week-to-week, so we can do what we love to do. We know we’re very lucky to have the opportunity to do what we love.

Laura was such a great co-host on my Soap Nation Live! Daytime Emmy Nomination Specials, in particular when she talks about acting. It’s so rewarding to hear the other actors who are guests on the show listening to what Laura has to say about her craft and respecting the hell out of her.

Wes: Without a doubt. You can’t watch her work and not be in awe. It speaks for itself.

Laura: I just love the journey of going to the places that we go; to bleed for it.

Wes: Leave it all out on the floor.

Laura: I know that process. So, when I see another actor that’s bleeding, I just bow to them, because I know what it takes to go there. I know the work that Wesley does. When I see that he’s spent at the end of the day, I’m like, “Babe, I so get it.” So, I can see where it could be really difficult for people that haven’t been there, because it’s a lot of work and you’re spent. It’s hard! For us, that works.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.

Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.

Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
