GENERAL HOSPITAL: Just Look At What Facial Recognition Software Can Do!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Will Spinelli’s (Bradford Anderson) nifty new software program be the answer to all of General Hospital  fans long-suffering angst? Will everyone in Port Charles finally find out that “Jake” is really Jason (Billy Miller)? The answers seem to be on their way starting this week on the ABC soap opera.

When we last left off, (at the end of GH’s Friday cliffhanger) Spinelli needed to run back to Portland because Ellie has been  injured.  So, he tells Carly (Laura Wright) at the hospital that he has to leave, but he has the facial recognition software running and it should be just about completed which would give answers to “Jake’s” true identity.  Spinelli tells Carly to deliver the laptop to Sam (Kelly Monaco) once the program is done running and completed.

But what Spinelli and Carly do not see is that the recognition software is morphing the skeletal x-rays from “Jake’s” face (Billy Miller) to Jason’s original face (Steve Burton)!  Now it looks as if Carly will be the first person with this explosive information, just as Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is set to walk down the aisle with “Jake”.   What will she do with it?

According to Laura Wright in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, when Carly stumbles upon Jason’s face in the software, she teases: “It almost knock her over.  It’s just, “Wow, Oh, my God! It is not at all what she’s  expecting and she can barely speak!” Carly will want to get to “Jake” right away with the intel, but will she get to him? This is a  soap opera afterall, and there will probably be some massive roadblocks in her way!

Watch the final moments of Friday’s GH cliffhanger below with the pickup happening today! Tell us:  what did you think of the facial recognition software as the way to reveal the identify of “Jake”? Do you think Carly will succeed in telling “Jake” who he is before his wedding to Liz?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Something will come up…Carly will either get stuck in an elavator, or She is kidnapped or Sonny has a crises-he ran out of bacon grease to slick back his hair…lol

CeeCee

HaHa, Jimmy. Perhaps, you can answer this for me….what is the difference between Julian and Sonny? Is one person better than the other, morally? They are cut from the same cloth, yes? So, where does Carly get off telling Olivia that Julian is a loser father for Leo? Ummmm, didn’t she just marry, for the umpteenth time, a subway mouse from Bensenhurst turned rat killing for bigger cheese as payoff? Or bigger pizza slices , LOL. I ask, why is Sonny constantly put on a pedestal?
Then, the Oh-Wise-One himself told Olivia the same hypocritical words. What’s up with these writers? They are continuing to carry the torch for almighty Sonny; clearing the path to his altar; paying him homage with adoration. Let’s all light a candle for this sainted superstar. Amazing!!

Kevin

Still have to watch this, but perhaps it just further reflects the hypocritical view Carly & Sonny have of themselves?

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Funny…you made me think of that popular utube video with the mouse carrying a piece of pizza…maybe its Sonny…lol…cant stand those hypocritical Corinthos bunch…wish Days and GH could do a crossover with Ben fleeing Salem and he arrives in PC to knock off a few characters…would love to see Sonny wearing one of those ties around his neck and Carly too..lol

CeeCee

@jimh( leave it to beaver)
Lol, Jimmy. That is exactly why I said it…..are you a New Yorker? That rat actually made the news, here in NYC area. I bet it was Sonny in disguise. Ha! Later.

Anne

please please no delays. The reveal of Jake’s identify should have happened looooong ago.

Timmm

This effect was spectacular! I dont think Carly will spill the beans. I think Robin will have something to do with the reveal? You know whatever happens it will happen at the wedding! Liz will NOT have a nice Thanksgiving. Speaking of Liz, wouldnt it be funny if little Jake busted into Sonny’s hospital room and claimed he was taking over Port Charles’s territory!

CeeCee

I agree, Timmm. Finally, my interest is tapping me on the back. I like the suspense…will Carly spill? Will she keep the life-changing news to herself until she feels is the right time? sKnowing myself, I could never keep news like that to myself. But, I’m a real person; not a puppet.
Well, Timmm. How do we know that little Jake does not have a brain belonging to an adult? An evil adult, at that…maybe Stavros. Wasn’t he a child-like spoiled brat? By the by….how do we know Helena did not whisk Nik away and replaced him with a fake?
One never knows…Helena is mighty powerful. Hey, Robin could have performed the brain transfer. It would not be so shocking to have little ‘Damien’ attack Sonny….they’re almost the same size, anyway.

Anne

love this prediction for Little Jake. could happen! I think he’s ready.

LT

nope, I think she will be kidnapped by the new commissioner to help out Ava with the baby custody hearing.

Mister Media

I thought this was a great device to reveal the truth. It was exciting to watch. Very cool! Long Love GH!!

CeeCee

Yes, it was, Mister Media. Very clever, indeed. This is why I think Liz, Nik , Hayden and the unwilling participant, Laura will escape the ‘hangman’. No one will be the wiser. Well, maybe??

Melissa

OK, but why in the world would Spinelli leave his lap top running a very important and confidential program in the middle of a hospital waiting area? I don’t care that he left it with Carly, she was too distracted talking to Sonny’s medical staff to even care about sticking close to the computer. If she really cares for Jake as a friend she would have stayed glued to that computer throughout, no matter how long it took. It’s like when people recap deep dark secrets in public spaces where they can be easily overheard.

Mister Media

You’re right of course, but I suppose the justification could be made that Spinelli never imagined that the results would reveal anyone familiar who would be recognized and would thus be of litte interest to anyone who viewed them.

jeremy

FINALLY!!!!!!!!# 🙂 😉

CeeCee

Yes, FINALLY, jeremy. I just hope and pray it is the end!! But, as intimated above, we could be facing more useless and senseless pit stops until the final destination. Who knows how long that will take. It’s been how long? We’ll have a new President and Jake will still be asking, “who am I?”

Ces

He’ll be up there with John Black in the amount of times he’s asked this question this month!

CeeCee

@Ces.
HaHa, Ces. Too funny! John Black! Our favorite. How long has it been for him? Finding his elusive parents is all in his head. Sometimes I think I see his weird facial expressions and hear his husky voice in my sleep….whispering, “Hey, Doc.”

harrylime

HA! Ces. I watched Days off and on about 25 years ago. Back then he was still wrestling with his identity.
Now we see him on Ancestor, com, and no one, not even Marlena, gives a damn.

harrylime

This was incredibly well done.
I saw the promo on Twitter and it looks like we fans are finally going to be rewarded.
But poor Patrick!
Now he knows how Sparkle Pony felt.

CeeCee

Right? It was ingenious, harrylime.

Timmm

Who knew they looked so much alike!

CeeCee

@Timmm.
I actually think it’s an illusion….the imagination works wonders. Billy is the SUN, Steve is the DARKNESS.

JUDY

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS STORY HAS BEEN DRAGGED OUT WAY TOO LONG, AND I BET TODAY WILL STILL NOT SEE ANY HOPE……..

su0000

That photo merg was well done.
there is free software, not the best, but to play with to do similar. It’s not easily done, but fun.
It has a lot to with speed so need need a good connection..
and not as good as studio done, for sure ..

I did not care for a computer reveal, hoping for something more climactic but at least the reveal is near, and that is good.

CeeCee

I agree, Su. At first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Carly will mess everything up. Darn!!

Lucy D.

Well the timeline is going to take a while. The actual wedding starts Wed I think and lasts about a week (I saw a Varni comment about it). I’m very sad about JT leaving at this time. I think from the preview Robin has NOTHING to do with it. Maybe Patrick calls her after since she told him Jason was dead.

I’m more curious why Robin is being held prisioner–only because I do now want to see Jason with Sonny or Sam.

Fanny

I have yet to see GH today… I’m sure Carly’s reaction will be priceless….
The Lulu /Halloween reveal on that Haunted tugboat should be equally interesting.

CeeCee

Hello, Fanny, sweet lady:
I do not want to put a damper on your excitement, but by the time you get this post, you will have, hopefully, already watched the Lulu-Dante-Valerie revelation.
Personally, I found it to be extraordinarily commonplace and redundant….reminiscent of Carly/Franco wedding. It was not surprising, but expected. I predict the same old, same old for the up-coming nuptials between Liz and Jake.

Timmm

Franco / Carly reveal was 10 times better! This Lulu is not good! He reaction was horrible. You probably didnt watch GH when Julie Berman was Lulu. She was 10 times better! Anyway, what I hated the most was Lulu’s standoff with Val Chops! The acting was horrible and Lulu didnt smack the witch upside her head! Seriously, if you were in Lulu’s shoes wouldnt you want to slap the bitch who screwed your husband in YOUR bed. Weak, very weak!

Fanny

@CeeCee sweetie,
You R correct dearest… Unfortunately the writers missed the “BOAT”
on this one. I didn’t feel or see the emotional devastation one would
feel during such a shocking revelation… Dante looked half asleep at
the helm, Lulu was crass, Val-chops tearful, Dillon constantly
threatening Dante…was semi glad it happened…as if he’d planned
it this way. Paul had told him earlier never to give up on the woman
you love…
Most likely the same thing will occur with Jake’s unveiling
hoping there R a few good aftershocks after such a weak quake.
We still have Hayden and possibly Robin…. Surprisingly Carly chose
to think things through, get as many facts together before blowing
everything sky high. They can ALL tell Jake he’s Jason till the cows
come home but if he doesn’t remember or feel what they feel, than
right now not much can change for HIM. Till next time Sweets.

CeeCee

@Timmm.
Hey, there, Timmm.
Of course Franco’s surprise ‘revelation’ was better….that’s why the repeat of the same does not phase anyone. IT HAS BEE DONE. So incredibly amateurish. I’m beginning to think Su is right about the new writing team. What? Do they copy from one another?
Now, let me tell you that I left the room to get an apple without pausing. That’s how unimpressed I was. Lol. Am I whining? Ah, who cares, right? Someone will comment expounding how ungrateful and bitchy I am. Later, my friend.

CeeCee

@Fanny.
I cannot top what you just wrote, my love. It is perfection. Great expose’, pardon the pun!

harrylime

Julie Berman would have pulled this off. She would have portrayed a betrayed wife whose worse fears about marriage (after watching what happened to her parents’ great love story) had been realized.
Instead, we get mini-Lulu marching around the docks in her five inch heels while in a state hysteria. She just seemed like an angry muppet.

CeeCee

@Timmm.
Lol, Timmmbo. I think I once told you what I would do if my husband ever cheated on me. I would do a ‘Bobbit’ on him. The woman? Just look her up and down as the piece of trash she is. I would not dirty my hands.
I do believe that Valerie’s embarrassment will last her a lifetime. I just cannot believe Dante’s excuse. ” I thought you were cheating on me”! Really? Lulu’s ‘heartbreak’ acting got better…she did ok. And, yes, Juliw was still on when I started watching. So, I know what you mean.
I hope Lulu finds new lodgings….the idea of living in the place my husband did another woman would make my skin crawl.
Also, the truth needed to come out, but what Dillon did was really low and crass. What does that tell us about his persona? His integrity? The Apple does not fall far…..
What a complete jerk! So what foes he think? That Lulu will now go running to him? Such child’s play. There is probably a sandbox behind the scenes and the writers carry their little beach pails and shovels.
By the way, I never thought Dillon was a looker. Now with that Brylcreemed head ; I don’t know, even worse!…..maybe if he parted his hair on the other side? HaHaHa!!

Alan

That is one AMAZING computer program! It even knew that Jake had a mullet before his reconstructive surgery…

Ces

Haha! Good one!

CeeCee

That is so hilarious, Alan!!!!

Mateo

Carly will be delayed but she will get the information to Jake/Jason. I can’t wait to see Liz get her bubble burst. All those secrets she is hiding. And it doesn’t just affect her. It directly affects her kids and Jason’s kids. She is a good woman overall, I truly believe that, but her obsession with Jason grew out of control. She needs that ugly reality check. I am looking forward to seeing what happens.

CeeCee

Yeah, Mateo. Liz looked a little apprehensive as Carly told Jake she wanted a private conversation with him. But, Carly is not aware that Liz knows who Jake is. There is a chance no one will ever find out Liz even knew the truth. Unless Nik, Hayden and Laura come forward with the info. And, by doing so, they will shoot themselves in the foot. I guess it depends where TPTB want to go with it. Oh, what a tangled web…..

Fanny

@CeeCee Love…you know Liz is not walking away unscathed …
Unfortunately all of it her own doing, as if standing in front of an on
coming freight train is going to miss it’s target. Liz, Liz, Liz …. Misery
will be the only thing she gets from all the lying and covering up she’s
done since she found out Jakes true identity. Will it have been worth
it in the end.

Patrick

is this going to be a knowing he’s Jason Quartermaine, with no memory coming back?

and Liz wll have to delay the wedding… and can she get out of this unscathed

well… Nicholas should stand up for her… and swear Hayden and mom Laura to secrecy… to let Liz off the hook

CeeCee

@Fanny.
No, dear friend, nothing is ever worth over losing one’s soul. Sadly, we find such people in the real world. I agree, Liz should pay for the misery she is causing for everyone. But, so much evil and crime is swept under the rug in soaps.

Aria

Why does Carly have to be in the center of every thing? I hope Liz herself stops the nuptials to tell jake the truth, unlickly though, still I they make Carly the center of this story I’ll puke .!!! And the computer reveal was neat I liked it. Glad this story is finally playing to its conclusion, I hope Liz moves on, jake isn’t worth it neither is nick so hope she gets someone new.

Wil

Carly is the lead actress on GH. She therefore should be involved in the major stories. She’s been the most interesting character on GH for 20 years. I love Laura Wright!

Timmm

I agree and her and Jason are best friends!

su0000

hi Aria..
Of course Carly would be involved with Jason’s reveal.
Jason and Carly were very close, much like brother and sister..

Sam is not right for Billy/Jason, I hope they do not get back together..
Billy Miller is a heap of charisma and the Sam character is much like a blah stone..
Sam will drag Jason into blah land with her.
I want Json free..
Jake will be reborn into a Jason, he needs to be free to work on his life not be in a love triangle.

CeeCee

Much like brother and sister, su? I thought Jason and Carly had been lovers for a while, back in the day. Golly, I would hope brothers and sisters would not do that. Ewwww. Was I misinformed?

su0000

hi CeeCee,, right, back in the day love stuff with fake sex! lol
but now, brother & sister type of whatever..

I just want Jason free of Liz and Sam 🙁 poor guy being stuck with either of them.

CeeCee

Hi, Su.
Yes, we have always agreed on that, Su. Jake/Jason should be untethered for a while; no tug-of-war games. These particular hens will peck him to death.

rebecca1

Hi Aria…I actually love Jake-Jason and Sam together. I think they have great chemistry and fit like a glove. Or…black leather jacket!

Mary SF

Carly will get delayed somehow– and although it is a standard soap opera device to have someone come in and break up the wedding with the “news” whether it be Carly, Hayden or Robin, I am hoping that Liz will have the decency not to go through with it, and bolt from the altar– please give Liz a little wiggle room for redemption and not marry a married man. I want the truth to come out finally, but lets not do it at the wedding –let Liz do the the decent thing and then have the truth come out afterwards.

Timmm

My biggest problem with Liz’s lie is she hurt Monica. I thought she could have told her that Jason is alive.

Martin

I love how people complain about Spinelli’s tech when this is the show that has cryostasis chambers for Jason and hoe Robin can bring the dead back to life..

Tima

LOL so true at least the facial reconstruction is based in reality since they got Jason’s X-rays pre and post surgery.

CeeCee

Lol, Martin….and, mess with people’s brains!!

Ces

Now Carly, you were supposed to give that damn thing to Sam! And why is Sam just hanging out when Spinelli left her messages to pick up? Carly alwsys gets the big reveals but I guess I should be glad she didnt leave it on the table for snot face Liz to steal. can we hurry this up already?

Timmm

These people on soaps NEVER answer their damn phones!

CeeCee

Neither does one of my sisters, or her husband, Timmm. Very frustrating.

ces

sure don’t. Stupid because Sam was waiting to hear from Spinelli. Anything to drag this out further and make Carly the hero again.

CeeCee

Right? Ahhh, ces. I must sound like a broken record by now; but these writers are testing our intelligence and what’s within the realm of reason. Perhaps I was expecting too much from this new team.
I know you notice these subtle things, ces…….so;….have you noticed that Sam also wears black to bed? Some sleeping gear, eh? Leggings and wife-beaters.
Boxers are so much more comfy. LOL

Ces

CeeCee, you always crack me up!! Sam’s bedtime wear cracked me up!! How does Dr. Drake get in therrr? lol!!! 😉
I just think someone else should play the hero once in awhile. Geez… let’s drag this out until Friday; not sure I can handle one more minute of that nauseating duo Liz & Jake DOE.

CeeCee

Well, ces, the feeling is mutual, since you just cracked me up…about, Patrick’s maneuvers? Between Sam, Summer, and “hey Doc”, we’re all set.
Ah, yes, Liz and Jake! This is so not Billy Miller. He capitulates to Liz’s every psycho whim.

su0000

I want to give Laura Wright/Carly a big BRAVO!
She is a phenomenal actor!

CeeCee

Ok, y’all…listen up! I have been saying that Kiki will get into a car accident for, ummmmm, forever?!?!?!
Will we find out Nina is her bio mother, now? Will Kiki need plasma/blood which only Nina can provide?
Will the computer with Jason’s/Jake’s digital image be destroyed? Will the wedding be postponed because Carly is hurt? Will Carly and Sonny share the same hospital room? The same bed?

Ces

Unfortunately drunks rarely get hurt; just the victims. Alas, Kiki is A-Okay and on her couch … sigh …..

CeeCee

Yeah, how true! I keep calling it perpetually wrong concerning Kiki. She is crying out for help. Morgan is doing a bit of a turn-around. He is trying with her…..Which brings me to this query; what happened to his possible bipolar disorder?

Fanny

@CeeCee Sweetie… I’m glad you brought that up…Morgan possibly
being bipolar, seems to me (new) writers thought if ignored it may go
away… Really!!

CeeCee

Right, Fanny….why introduce a topic, and a very delicate one at that, and not pursue it? I bet they have other ideas for Morgan. But, I just can’t picture him doing anything constructive or relevant because I can’t get the lascivious image of him out of my head. I cannot take this character seriously. This is how the previous writers molded him. It will take a while and something monumental to change Morgan’s guise and how he is perceived. I must see pigs fly to sway me, my lovely lady.

sexyjlo

Liz should tell that her and Nicholas knew about the identify of Jake all along &they need to pay for all the people they hurt &all the lives they turned upside down !! It is way over due Sam&Jason need to have their Family back together again & They have Great chemistry Love Them Together!!!

Newmanwins

Laura Wright just may be the best actress in the business. She gave one excellent performance on Monday’s show. It was as close to perfect as it can get.

CeeCee

I love Laura; not the character.
She surely is the best actress, besides Maura. Now, I see why she was nominated. I hope this is Laura’s year because she is outdoing herself. Love her impeccable skill.

janet

Just what I wanted to see. SB on my screen NOT ! glad I don’t watch any more.

Ces

yet you post here. lol..

janet

I read the boards, .I want to know if there is any reason to watch. So far I see none. .I will see Robins return, Tristan’s and if not tooo disgusting Genie Francis. maybe just on you tube. no one on the show is of intrest to me anymore. All evil killers.

gilbert104¥

I don’t care how much “prove” they show, Jake Doe will never be Jason Morgan. I always wanted Franco to be the real Jason!

CeeCee

No one is saying Jake Doe will be Jason Morgan. Jake is Jason in name only. Don’t you know that, Gilbert? No actor, regardless how good he/she is, can ever duplicate another’s idiosyncrasies. And, I doubt that is what the writers are trying to do. His head injury will accommodate the ‘problem’ perfectly. Ain’t fiction great??

sharon fox

what i hope happens is that liz gets dumped on and him and sam find away to fall back in love and stay married/ as much as i love patrack you can never be fully happy as you were with your firsf love/ its never gonna be the same as what you loved about your first love, some thing will aways get in the way of your second love u never forget. awful hard to move on cause your always wondering if your doing the right thing or do u feel like your cheating w/ your new love huh

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.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

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.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

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.

What do you think of Laura and Wes’ love connection? What do you think of the latest developments for GH’s Carly and Henrik? Comment below.

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.

On yesterday’s GH, viewers saw the tender moment when Maxie (Kirsten Storms) delivered her baby, who is the bio-son of her late husband, Nathan West.

When Maxie finds out she had a boy to carry on the legacy of her beloved husband, she is overcome.

Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan), who left the series earlier this year, took to Twitter upon seeing the episode and the image of the little baby that is his on-screen offspring.

He expressed: “Welcome to the world, little one …. it’s a scary place sometimes, and i so wish i could have been there to show you all the good stuff. Your mother loves you,and will take care of you and teach you …. watch out for her her for me will ya?”

Aaawww.  So many GH fans have been touched by the gesture, and how nice it is that it makes the whole journey and end of Nathan’s West story heartbreaking and bittersweet.
