GH Looking to Bring Kristina Davis Back Home for Summer! But will it be Lexi Ainsworth?

It’s time for soaps to get ready to beef us those summer storylines, which means, to the dismay of many viewers, younger characters!   Still there are plenty of great young performers on daytime, that do help attract a younger audience when school is out.

Today, ABC Soaps In Depth  revealed that an insider is saying that there is a strong possibility that Port Charles’ Kristina Davis may be heading home from Yale for the summer break.   But while that may be good news for Kristina fans, it may or may not be good news for the talented Emmy nominated, Lexi Ainsworth, who last played this role, and who was sent packing by the previous GH regime!  (Remember, Lexi is also a pre-nominee for this years Emmy race, too) But with Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati in charge now over at GH, will they want to “mature” the character and bring on a new actress?  Or, bring back the popular Ainsworth? 

SID conclusion was:  Kristina’s return to GH is likely.  However, Ainsworth’s return, is up in the air.

So soapers, would you like to see Lexi back on GH? And if not, who would you like to see play Kristina?  Let us know!

    Lexi was the one who had chemistry with Ethan. Now that Ethan is gone they may as well bring Lexi back. No reason to age her.

    BUT, I think it would be a great idea to recast Kristina and EThan too if he wont come back and have them one the run together with Robert on their trail. He could of visit her at Yale, and instead of going home to PC to leave with Ethan for a summer on the run! 🙂

      There was ZERO reason to recast Kristina — even if Ethan were still on GH!!!

      Bring back Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina and give her the character development that the former regime refused to do.

      If NP ever decides to come back, maybe he’ll finally realize that Ethan was only likeable to many fans when he was hanging around Kristina. If he doesn’t want to come back, maybe they could recast Ethan eventually.

      There’s really no need for NP/Ethan or recast Ethan to be in PC in order for Lexi’s Kristina (the only Kristina I want to see) to return home.

      We know who her parents are and that she is not only a Corinthos but also a Cassadine. There are a ton of potential storylines for Kristina!

      Lexi’s Kristina is an organic GH character and should be back in PC!

    I would like to see Lexi back, I enjoyed her as Kristina. I also wanted to see the storyline between she and Ethan develop, but now that will not happen with Ethan in hiding. I would be curious and happy to see the storyline they would bring Kristina back for.

    • Emily

      April 9, 2012 at 6:30 pm

      I will always believe in my heart of hearts that Ethan and Kristina will eventually find their way to each other even if it’s never shown on TV.

      There are still a number of Ethina fanfiction stories being created and updated.

      Not too bad for a “non-couple”!!!

    If they are smart they will bring Lexi back. She has tons of potential if given great material to play. But I fear they will bring on some other former OLTL actress.

    If they are going to bring the character of Kristina back, why shouldn’t Lexi play her? Fans liked her and she was good enough to be nominated in her category. Lexi is 19 years old, the same age as a college freshman. What sense would it make to age her character? Who goes away for college for a year at 18 and comes back in their 20s?

    Lexi, she has great chemistry with her mom and sister, too bad they dumped her boyfriend, now tjere was chemistry.

  6. MBmomof3

    April 9, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    If they can get the actress to come back they should. She’s very talented, has great chemistry with other cast members, will mix in nicely with the summer young storyline they are surely planning, and from what I’ve heard the fans like her.

  7. Emily

    April 9, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Bring back Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina Davis! Cartini can correct JFP’s egregious error of firing Lexi in such a discriminatory manner.

  8. desiree willis

    April 9, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    I only want Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina. If Kristina is recast, I will tune out again. I quit watching after Lexi was fired but came back w the new regime to give them a fair chance. Well this is it boys! Either right the wrong that was done to Lexi or lose me again as a viewer! It’s really that simple!

  9. Joi

    April 9, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    They need to bring Lexi back as Kristina. I’m a huge ethina fan but after Nathan swooned and praised that debacle that was the trash in white he can stay where he’s at. First priority is to get Lexi back. If Nathan wants to come back and SUPPORT the ethina storyline than I’ll gladly accept him, if not then they can recast his butt. My loyalty is to Lexi. I will not watch that show unless she is on it, and a bunch of birdies told me I’m not missing a thing.

    • Claudia Joy

      April 10, 2012 at 7:45 am

      I too am an Ethina fan but I’m a Kristina fan first and foremost. If NP doesn’t realize the potential of Ethina then I would gladly accept a recast! Or better yet, bring in another tall strapping young man who reminds Kristina of Ethan. SAH-WOON!!!

  10. Cath

    April 9, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    Lexi Ainsworth absolutely has to be back as Kristina. She is so talented & would be an asset to the soap if she was used properly. To this day, I still say she was unjustly fired.

    • Brandon

      April 10, 2012 at 7:41 am

      She was unjustly fired. I hope Cartini realizes that bringing back Lexi would also bring back a number of fans who stopped watching when she was fired.

      • Gina

        April 14, 2012 at 5:42 pm

        She didn’t have alot of fans, the majority of viewers hated her Kristina, she’s not a great actress, and she was a recast herself. She didn’t even have the looks to play Sonny’s daughter. She was fired so they would be able to retool the character later on because her version wasn’t working.

      • Charlene

        April 16, 2012 at 12:10 pm

        Lexi has alot of fans! Stay tuned because she might be back!

    I want to see her with the very handsome and devious Jack Manning

    • Joe

      April 9, 2012 at 9:36 pm

      WOW! That would be awesome!!!

    • david

      April 9, 2012 at 9:40 pm

      That is a very good idea. They would make quite an attractive couple. Andrew Trischitta has improved since first appearing on OLTL. It would be interesting to see their chemistry. Their potential pairing could boost summer ratings.

      • krktoday

        April 10, 2012 at 4:18 am

        not to mention how upset Sonny and Alexis would be over it.

      • Iakovos

        April 10, 2012 at 7:02 am

        They could SORAS Jack Manning some, too.

    • Schmitty

      April 10, 2012 at 7:51 am

      I have to respectfully disagree. Andrew is almost 3 years younger than Lexi in real life. She is 19.5 and he just turned 17. Kristina is the same age as Lexi but I believe Jack is younger than Andrew (15 or 16?). I’d much rather see Kristina with a slightly older gentleman.

      Sorry!

        April 14, 2012 at 8:44 pm

        Well, wasn’t a fan of Lexi, don’t know what the hype is all over. Could care less one way or another. I DO BELIEVE that she would be a good pairing for Jack, even though he may be younger than Kristina. Its not a BIG viserable difference. Plus Andrew/ Jack has screen presense and is dashing. Kristina with her being short, and with such keen features, makes her look younger, so in fact, they would look around the same age, and thus, it would be a PERFECT pairing, a ratings buster for the Summer months. I think it’s an EXCELLENTE idea, krktoday April 9th, at 7:58pm

        I just want Lexi back! Put her with a painting or a pumpkin — oh wait, they did those pairings with another character.

        Bring back Lexi Ainsworth!

  12. Emily

    April 10, 2012 at 8:29 am

    Lexi Ainsworth is great. She can act and she had chemistry w/every1. Sonny, her mom, sisters, etc… She had chem w/Ethan too, but the writers didn’t pursue that, not sure why? Not that ship has sailed. If I were casting I’d choose a good actress over aging the actress again (if they want a older look). THe fans like and know her as well as the characters she’s tied to on the show. Sounds like a no brainer if they want to bring “Krissy” back.

    • krktoday

      April 10, 2012 at 2:20 pm

      okay if Jack is to old for Kristina bring him on for Molly. He is a very good looking kid and would be good for adding younger viewer’s during the summer.

      • Sally

        April 11, 2012 at 6:48 am

        Yes, Jack is a bit young for Kristina but he’d be PERFECT for Molly!

        I still want Lexi Ainsworth back as Kristina Davis! NO recast needed!!!

  13. Lisa

    April 10, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    They should bring Lexi back.
    Ethan is gone ( too bad they chickened out on that one).

    • Sally

      April 11, 2012 at 6:49 am

      Yep, the former regime really did chicken out of putting Ethan with Kristina! They were adorable!!

      Bring back Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina Davis!!!

  14. JustSaying

    April 10, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    And what storyline would they have for Kristina? It would have to be something super (or at least decent) for Lexi to return. Otherwise, just bring in a recast.

    • Sally

      April 11, 2012 at 6:50 am

      I don’t want a recast at all. If they don’t have a decent storyline for Kristina then don’t bring her home from Yale.

      That was easy!

      • JustSaying

        April 12, 2012 at 7:04 pm

        True!

    They should bring back Lexi, Ethan or not. GH handled things with her so badly and with no class. She deserves better.

  17. Steve

    April 10, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    Please bring back Lexi!! She was sooo much fun to watch!! What a great actress!!! The idiots who sent her away from the show are stupid!!! I pride myself on seeing talent, and she had it all!! I would say Hell yes! Bring her back!! Lexi only, not a replacement!!

  18. Donna Ward

    April 10, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    I would love to see Lexi back as Kristina! Please, don’t recast her, especially with another OLTL actor! She’s a wonderful actress and has great chemistry with Haley, Nancy, and Mo.

  19. tim

    April 10, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    If Lexi does return as Kristina she will eventually need a new love interest.My choice would be a slightly aged Jack Manning.

  20. Rusty

    April 11, 2012 at 4:57 am

    I don’t know about Lexi. It may not have been her fault, but the character came across as a whiny brat. I think if Lexi can’t play the part without whining, then maybe they should recast the part.

    • Wallace

      April 11, 2012 at 9:34 am

      That was how the character was written. I’ve seen Lexi in other roles and she never came off as whiny or bratty.

      The character Kristina should be matured but not at the cost of losing Lexi. Lexi Ainsworth is capable to portraying a young woman because she is one!!!

      Good night and good luck!

  21. Scott

    April 11, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    I’d love for another recast of Kristina. Lexi is a cute girl, but she looked 14 trying to act 18/19. I wasn’t found of her acting, and feel like there are stronger actresses out there to portray the role like she should be portrayed.

    I’d love to see someone like Natalie Hall (ex-Colby, AMC) come in as Kristina or Valentina de Angelis (ex-Faith, ATWT) as Kristina.

    • Chachi

        I’m sorry but I didn’t find that Lexi could act. I would not support her coming back. Never got the hype.

      April 14, 2012 at 5:05 pm

      • Scott

    • Bakula

      April 17, 2012 at 7:20 am

      I disagree too. I’d take a QUANTAM LEAP if Lexi came back as Kristina.

      Why so negative, Scott? Do you always attack actresses you don’t like? Ever hear about KARMA?

      • Scott

        April 17, 2012 at 9:56 pm

        I’m not attacking her Bakula. Lexi seems like a sweet girl. But she was not right for the role of Kristina Corinthos Davis. The role needs to be bold and sassy and she portrayed her as sweet, annoying and whiny.

        She wasn’t strong in her portrayal. And my karma is AMAZING. It’s beautiful in fact. No need to worry here.

  22. Brenda

    April 12, 2012 at 4:35 am

    Bring Lexi back. I loved her as Kristina.

  23. lee

    Eww don’t bring that girl back, she was horrible with her mean look and lopsided mouth, her only chemistry was with the front door.

    Lexi could not act. Her voice was like nails on a chalk board, only knew how to play bratty and crying and nothing else. Plus she looked 12 years old and was not buyable in an adult romance. They need to hire someone else as her smugness WAS NOT APPEALING!

    • Adam

      April 15, 2012 at 11:53 pm

      You do understand that her voice, bratty attitude and crying was how the writers wanted Lexi to play the part right? Just checking. Lexi is a great actress and if they decided to mature the character a lot (like lose the attitude and dress her like an average college student) then I say bring her back as her character has a lot more to tell and offer to P.C.

        April 24, 2012 at 1:47 pm

        Her voice was not instructed. That was Lexi’s regular speaking voice. Those smug looks were not instructed either. She couldn’t act and failed at trying to be sexy.

      April 16, 2012 at 12:14 pm

      Will you tune out if Lexi returns? Probably not!

      No brainer there! Bring Lexi Ainsworth back as Kristina!

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.
