GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nathan Comes Clean About His Past To Maxie!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Monday’s episode of General Hospital saw the launching pad for the upcoming summer storyline that will definitely feature Bree Williamson (incoming Claudette), Ryan Paevey (Nathan), Molly Burnett (as temporary Maxie) and most likely Matt Cohen (Griffin), by deducing the secret that Nathan spilled to Maxie (Kirsten Storms).

In story, Nathan confesses to Maxie about his past with Claudette, and that their relationship had been imploding.  He began drinking one night after believing she had been cheating on him, although he had no proof.  Another time, he got called into the police station unscheduled to work, and then went out afterwards with some of the guys and got wasted.  When he returned home he found Claudette in bed with another man.  Nathan took out his gun and blindly shot at the guy.   However, Nathan doesn’t remember much after that, because he passed out.  When he awoke he saw blood on the sheets, but the guy was gone and he never saw him, nor did anyone ever press charges agains him, nor did he report it.

Maxie is more than upset saying that Nathan is not the man she thought he was.  She needs to go spend the night elsewhere, and that this secret could come back to bite them.

From all likelihood it would appear Griffin has to be the man Nathan shot, who never pressed charges.  After all, Griffin recognized Nathan a few months ago with a knee-jerk reaction, and has that bullet wound scar to prove it.

Watch Nathan’s admission to Maxie after the jump!  Are you rooting for Maxie and Nathan to get through this rough patch in their relationship?  Does the reveal pique your interest for the emergence of Claudette on to the scene? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I’m surprised Griffin had the energy for a romp in the sack with Claudette, what with becoming a priest and a doctor at the same time- LOL.

That said I really don’t see where this story can go– Claudette comes back, then what? Is she going to have a relationship with Nathan or Griffin? If so who cares— are they going press charges now after all this time? What is the point of this story? There isn’t one except to provide a temporary obstacle in Nathan and Maxie’s relationship– it is such contrived nonsense– why can’t one soap couple have normal obstacles to overcome–sign. This is sounds like another one of these dead end stories that they will make up as they go along trying to make more interesting but never will be— like the whole fiasco that is Hayden Barnes

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

She will probably have had a child…is it Grif’s or Nate’s…and Grif is obviously the person he shot…and i dont really care!!!…and what makes the story less interesting is it will be a different Maxie dealing with Claudette!!!

Celia

Yeah, Jimmy. But, I find this story interesting because Griffin’s mysterious past attracted me from the onset. There is an enigmatic air about him. However, without Kirsten, the story’s complexion becomes pale in contrast. So, my interest may dissipate, albeit I like this story…….it holds promise.
I will say it again, I am not sure if Molly was the best choice here. We shall see. Maybe she’ll surprise us.

Justin

Exactly, Mary. Another new character (Claudette) to endure, in yet another storyline that has nothing to do with GH history or GH families.

nancy dillingham

Agree that it does seems contrived.

Celia

What you said, Mary.
All this has happened when? A decade ago? Maybe, the ‘mea culpa’ effect compelled Griffin to escape to the Seminary. Who came first? The doctor or the priest? Strand situation, Mary.
And, as you say, THEN WHAT??

Celia

Strange, not strand.

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

Griffen is ok and one of the better newbies…its just this bringing in more characters to move a story is a bit too much because they end up staying then other characters are introduced for them instead of utilizing the cast they have…the stories need more connection to regular cast members and some of their stories and better continuity instead of having some disappear for weeks like Brad and Lucas, Kristina and her male friend-its hard to stay interested in some of these characters when they aren’t shown for weeks who suddenly have a story then disappear for more weeks…same with Laura and Kevin-i dont think the writers even know what Laura’s mystery even is???

Celia

@jimn(leave it to beaver).
I love Griffin, too, Jimmy. But, I agree. Too many characters….too many stories to focus on….all over the map. Again, Jimmy; my head is a’spinnin’. I don’t want to see or spew green soup anymore. LOL.

Soaphound

Amen to ALL that, Mary SF. So dull and predictable. As Blanche once said to Rose on THE GOLDEN GIRLS after a story that was actually MORE compelling than the Nathan tale, “That is a big WHO CARES story.”

su0000

ahhhh ha!
Griff was doing the nasty with Claudette.
So, Claudette may very well be there for Griff not Nathan.

I wonder; was a Griff a priest then or after?
It’d be cooler if he was a priest at the time.

Dylan

You are a depraved man, Su.

su0000

hi Dylan..
You see to be confused..
I am 100% woman; born female and will die female.
I hope that clears up your confusion .. ..

Celia

Dyla, my friend,
Someone else decided that Shay and I were also men, on these boards.
I am WOMAN: HEAR ME ROAR!!!! I have also said to you that as a woman, I KNOW su is a girl. She’s SuzieQ….will always be SuzieQ to me.
There are certain expressions that only a woman can relay in a certain way, and it takes another woman to grasp it.
Be nice.

nancy dillingham

At the time, su0000, at the time! Much more soapy, eh? 🙂

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

Hey, God is watching you…lol

Celia

He would have been too young to be both a priest or a doctor, su…….I think?
Training can take between ten years for a priest….longer for a doctor who specializes in one certain area.
It is just too incomprehensible for me. But, it’s a soap. I like the story….so, I go with the flow.
I have trepidations as Mary suggested. So, I do hope the ‘then what?’ becomes, ‘Ah, that’s what!.

su0000

I think it will be fun to see the Maxie sub as Nathan’s Maxie.
It is time for their break up, yes?

Celia

@su0000.
Lol, su. I hope you’re right. But, if you are familiar with Molly Burnett, I just do not see her personality mesh with Nathan’s.
Then again, Molly is an actress and as such, one hopes she adheres to the role.
The Maxie-Nathan breakup was imminent, as far as I am concerned. The tell-tale signs became apparent as soon as the name Claudette and her history with Nathan was mentioned.

Letemeatc8ke

Yeah, Molly can have the tendency to over act and come across as more childish instead of acting like an adult. It takes a special person to bring out Maxie’s qualities. Jen Lilly did an excellent job because she wasn’t trying to impersonate Kirsten Storms as Maxie – she was portraying the character of Maxie. I hope Molly can tap into that and make her mark on the character. I personally think she would make a good Hope on B&B.

vinman

Boring……also…..sam/jason/nick/liz/”hatechel”….totally over Carson&family too…
Only possible s/l I like is weekly laura/kevin..

Brett

Agree, these terrible writers need to go.

nancy dillingham

MORE LAURA AND KEVIN–YES!

Celia

I love seeing those two together. Laura and Kevin have a very calming effect on the scene……easy going without dark clouds swirling around. We need that peaceful break amidst so many tempestuous relationships and anger.

Erick

One word: stupid….

Erick

And in a couple weeks it’s gonna be four newbies in this story, Nathan will have the longevity out of all of them. Lame-O….

su0000

I see it as something new to have the step in actors on screen.
At the least it’s new .. GH rarely has new anything so it will be interesting.
I’m looking forward to the newbies.

JK

THIS IS ANOTHER STORY TO FAST FORWARD….SOOOO BAD!

MT

This isn’t GH’s fault this time. KS is not her best, so let’s just hope she feels better and returns soon

Dylan

I love Bree!! What I dont love is this show casting big name talent in throwaway roles. This mystery Claudette is just pointless filler! Mark my words……she will be a distant memory a year from now. Paging Claire Labine!!!!!

rebecca1

First, I think Ryan Paevy has improved so much as an actor. I always liked him…even when his acting was a bit stilted his gorgeous face/eyes conveyed emotion.
Second, I’m glad he’s finally getting a story
though are we ever going to find out who his father is???
Third, it’s ridiculous for Maxie to be so angry and distant. He tried and tried to tell her the truth but she kept telling him she didn’t want to hear it. He obviously has a conscience, he’s been troubled by this for a long time, he is still the same good guy and by her own admittance she’s had her own challenges with truth. Did she forget her flrtation and friendship with Johnny, a guy who kills for a living? By contrast Nathan’s act was a regrettable, drunken crime of passion. (Not sure if I could deal with that truth in real life but as far as soaps go it’s a comparatively low offense).
I’m looking forward to the story. Bree’s great; I’m hoping Mattdreamy Cohen steps up his game. I’ve seen him in other shows and he’s very good; he needs a little life injected into his current role. Not sure about the temporary Maxie…that unfortunately might lessen what could be a good love triangle (quadruple!) story….

Alan

This reveal — like all of Jean and Shelly’s writing — just left me with a feeling of “that’s it?”

It’s sad that after yesterday’s flashbacks the unseen Claudette became the most interesting character in this “story.”

(And while we’re on the subject of lackluster twists can we just get to the “big” reveal that Lucas was injected by Dr. Mays who is also probably the head of the black market organ ring that provided Jocelyn with her transplant?)

Celia

Love it, Alan. I do believe you said this before. Today, your words came to me as I scrutinized Dr. Mays (sp). He seemed so affable in defending Finn….but, I can see he has an agenda. He is cunningly trying to show reason to one and all.
I think you are right, Alan. Kudos.

Letemeatc8ke

Yup!

Brett

Another episode of newbie back story galore; Hayden and mom, this crap about Nathan’s past and even the attempted murder of Lucas (which I’m still not convinced won’t be finished) has been made all about Finn’s back story. Could this show get any more boring?

Kevin O.

I like Griffin but I’m not into this storyline at all. Just get Griffin and Maxie together already, and dump Nathan who is sooooo boring. (And I am loving Hayden’s mother so far.)

Justin

Who cares? I feel like I barely know Nathan, he hasn’t been on the show that long. Maxie, and almost every female on this show, has zero credibility with being angry at Nathan because of all the mob sympathizing that they do. I like Griffin, but I just don’t care about him yet. This is your summer storyline GH? What a contrived mess…..and add yet another newbie into the mix and this is a disaster.

Melissa

So much about the Claudette story makes no sense and is jarring to watch. Nathan shot someone in a drunken rage. Really? Nathan who’s been the steadiest and most moral person on the show? We’ve seen his jealousy before but he’s never once been drunk or acted inappropriately. And how does Obrecht, who only recently came into his life, know the story? Nathan would confide in her but not Nina, Dante or Maxie? And why have the writers chosen to make Maxie a hypocrite? Given her history of lies and deception she should immediately be understanding and willing to forgive Nathan. Instead her logic is — you always knew I was a liar so I’ve been consistent, but you never were a liar therefore I can ever trust you again. What? Nathan should totally call her out on that crap. I love the character of Geiffin and I hope at the very least this story explains how and why he became a priest.

Celia

I see your point, Melissa. Many ‘things’ about Nathan’s past do not jive with me. Firstly, Nathan’s involvement with Claudette, who, by the by, was supposedly an ingenue, happened years ago. So, how old was he? Twelve? I love Bree, but already there are discrepancies in the time frame, as Claudette looks so much older than Nathan.
I am guessing Nathan was the ‘ingenue’ mesmerized by an older, more sophisticated, wily woman? Double LOL.
Also, I am assuming Griffin knows exactly who Nathan is, and is biding his time? Why? Is he a good guy who is willing to let sleeping dogs lie….or, is he lying in wait…then pounce at the opportune moment? For what reason? Is Griffin still in love with Claudette? He has the advantage here.
Poor Nathan! Because of his drunken stupor, at the time, he is in such a vulnerable position right now.
As far as Liesl is concerned, you’re right. She did just come into his life as his mother. However, it is very possible that she was abreast of everything happening in his life. Did she keep in touch with MadMaddie?
Yes, the ‘being truthful and honest’ scene between Maxie and Nathan was a bit much….off the wall, as it were. So lame. Very well put, Melissa. You made me chuckle about Maxie’s logic. I suppose these writers think their audience is moronic. LOL.

Melissa

I’m so glad you liked the post and agree and I love your point about the timeframe for the Claudette / Nathan relationship.

Celia

@Melissa.
I’m glad you see my point, as well, Melissa. I always enjoy your posts.
Ain’t it grand when we agree? LOL.

Anne

I join the chorus and say this story is disappointing. There’s no suspense in what could happen. I love the actress coming to play Claudette but who cares what her arrival will mean. Nathan is belatedly indicted? If griffin hasn’t come forward by now chances are he won’t. Claudette could go after Nathan or griffin? So what? And yea when did Doctor-father griffin find time to have an affair? Between mass and brain surgery?

Celia

Right on, Anne! Perhaps Griffin’s reluctance in coming forward and making himself known means that he, himself, has something to hide?
I think all this went down before Griffin even entertained joining the priesthood. He may have been in Med School, at the time, though. Still, we are talking YEARS here.
These guys are just too young for all this to have happened long, long time ago, as Nathan said to Maxie. That’s what bothers me the most about this story. The time frame. Was it specified?

Letemeatc8ke

Lol!!!!
Maybe in the confessional booth?!

Celia

Too funny, Letemestc8ke!!

Lauren

This episode was a mess. If Hayden and Liz are sisters, then I hope they take their mother and leave town.

Letemeatc8ke

I think that would be awesome. They are noth atellar actresses and it would “be on!!!”

Letemeatc8ke

“They are both stellar actresses”

#ihatetypos

Celia

With all due respect, Lauren…I disagree. When Mrs Berlin walked in on Liz’s and Hayden’s ‘scuffle’, the scene was too coincidentally palpable. Almost comical. There was a definite intent by the writers for having both women call out “Mother”, albeit Liz was mockingly parroting Hayden.
That is the reason I suggested they were sisters. From what I have gathered, Liz has never known her mother? Is that true? Wouldn’t that be a twisted, cruel irony of fate, if true? So, I do not think my assumption is too far-fetched.
I love both Rebeccas. Yeah, Liz makes my blood boil sometimes. So, if she were not the true thespian she is, she could not draw out any feelings from the viewer.
The same may be said for Hayden.
No, I do not want either to leave. And, now that ‘Mother’ flew in like a whirlwind…..feathers will definitely be stirred and plucked.

dmr

The outcome of this storyline is what most people predicted. Another new character, Claudette, will be on-canvas, and we’ll probably never see her and lose even more interest in this storyline. Storylines are dropped on a regular basis; characters are not seen and forgotten about. Also, I thought Maxie was being hypocrite, chastising Nathan for keeping a secret and lying to her, when that is how Maxie rolls most of the time.

Mister Media

I’m loyal to GH and am always willing to give a story line a chance. I just wish I had more faith in the current writing team. To begin with, Maxie’s reaction to the news didn’t ring true for me. Too many stories have a predictable payoff but no lasting impact or consequences. Also, many stories meander and mutate as if there is no long term vision and, in some cases, no completion at all. I am excited to see Bree Williamson on my screen again however.

Celia

Meander and mutate….Words that would not come to me, Mister Media. Perfect fit!!!!! I tried expressing the same refrain. But, you say it best!!!! How true. A beginning…but, no middle or end. Everything is left in limbo. The stories never ripen. Why? Just as you say….” …no vision…”.

denisefan

Who writes this crap…. seriously… how do they keep a job?

Soaphound

Now let me get this straight. The Nathan who first showed up in Port Charles, the one who could make Dudley Do-Right blush , and hunted down Cyrus Clay for the unforgivable sin of putting Nina in a coma (which we now see would have been FULLY justified had he ACTUALLY done it) is the same Nathan who shot a man in a drunken rage and never owned up to it and continued on as an officer of the law in at least two different precincts? Right. And MORGAN is the one in a mental hospital?

Soaphound

Sorry for the typo, should say SILAS Clay. My bad.

imasoapfan

I’m rooting for Maxie to be in a relationship with an interesting character. Nathan is a bore.

http://imasoapfan.blogspot.com/

Kevin O.

I completely agree with this. Maxie should have a boyfriend as interesting as she is.

Celia

Ah, but what a hunk, Nathan is!!!! Love his easy-going personality. He’s HOT….from any angle. LOL.

Rose

Snooze! The only thing saving this story is how much I always enjoy KS as Maxie. RP as Nathan is doing the best he can with this story, but I just don’t care about his stupid past. Maybe if Griffin had been hitting on Maxie more than this would be more interesting but it is falling so flat for me.

rebecca1

Griffin backed off when he realized Maxie had a boyfriend. If I remember correctly that was before he found out about and recognized Nathan. But he said he didnt want to get close to a woman he couldn’t have…a lesson learned when he was shot??? Thus, he’s been trying to not hit on Maxie even though he seems attracted to her.

Celia

Let’s not forget Griffin is a Roman Catholic priest. Lol, Rose….what we may want to happen between Maxie and him is taboo. Then again, Griffin is first and foremost a man.
He must have incredible willpower, if he is attracted to Maxie. Plus, imagine the torture he will go through when Claudette shows up. Chances are he is still hung up on her. I think that’s why he became a priest…to make amends for whatever he’s hiding.
Are his regular visits to the hospital’s chapel meant to ask God for forgiveness for his unholy thoughts and the strength to resist temptation? Is that feasible?

paul connolly

This is exactly why this soap never really moves up in the ratings and stays up. It tells such stupid stories. So Bree will arrive as his ex-lover and a forced love triangle will ensue with no real need for it being forced. Nor does ANYTHING EXCUSE THE USE OF A GUN ESPECIALLY BY A COP!

Sorry, it was attempted murder that Nathan essentially covered up. Its not a story thats new because we constantly see Sonny, Jason and the Corinthos spawn pull out their guns and use them instead of brains! I don’t get why the writer on this show still has a job when he cant tell compelling story without it involving a gun.

Does he not read the paper? Police violence? Gun control? etc. is not something that papers in this upstate New York hamlet ever write about and it would be amazing if the show actually had Molly lead a “GUN CONTROL” story and eventually see the likes of Sonny, Jason, Julian, Ava etc give up their weapons for stories that we can all relate to.

Just sick and EFFIN tired of the only story GH can tell is with an old character, GUN McPISTOL-LOADED.

GET ORIGINAL

Soaphound

I find myself getting really confused also, Paul. With so much violence and so many bad deeds, where are the nice people and good deeds to balance things out? Even our supposed “heroes”, like Dante, Lulu, Nathan, Michael, Sabrina….they’ve all done underhanded things lately. And don’t even start on how Nikolas has been trashed. Carly & Sonny are beginning to look angelic in comparison. I’m starting to feel depressed when each show ends.

Letemeatc8ke

I’d like to ask a question – without inciting a riot. Why are some fans so stuck on core characters and so objectionable to new characters getting established on a soap? In your real life are you only limited to your nucleus family members? Don’t you have friends. People you know from work? Friends of relatives that you get introduced to and you hit it off with them and they become a part of your life. I just don’t get why new characters get so much hate-o-rade. I do understand when core characters are put on the back burner for a seemingly long time, but I think it’s just to give the new characters roots and fill in their background. Some writers are good at coming back around to core characters and balancing the mix. Other writers, well not so much. I guess I just like new faces on the scene sometimes. And GH is hiring the world so….

Celia

Oh, I’m with you, Letemeatc8ke. I welcome new characters, young, old and in-between. Your point is well-taken. Plus, new characters are necessary tools/foils to mold a story and another character; core or not.
However, I think, at least for me, that said characters are continuously thrown in, sometimes all at once, and at a fast pace. Most of us would love to see a storyline, once in a while, reach a climax and an end before being inundated by new faces and storylines.

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.

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.
