      Soap schedules give a lot of time off to do other things.

    He’s so cute. Hope this doesn’t negatively impact his role on GH, which is one of the few “new trash” on the show that I like.

    Griffen seemed to show promise in the beginning-he should had been Anna’s nephew and Nathan’s brother who shared the same father-Valentin…Anna’s sister and Valentin could had met which would blood tie him to many characters but this story with Claudette which i thought would be interesting with Bree just doesnt interest me-too predictable been there done that storytelling!!!

    He did come from prime time I think it’s great clearly his contract allows for him to work outside of GH and for a compitting network, I get to see him as an FBI agent now too, it’s win win for me as a fan. Just don’t leave GH anytime soon please!

    Congratulations to Matt on getting this primetime role. It doesn’t get much better than playing the son of Gary Sinise, one of Hollywood’s finest actors. I’m a fan of Beyond Borders, having watched the full first season. I think Matt will fit in very nicely with the rest of the cast, thought I think he’ll find the rate at which they tape primetime shows very slow compared with soaps. He’ll be great.

    The character Griffin Munro, is drab..
    He has no fire, no real purpose, no intruge, no nothing.
    He is simply eye candy .
    Griffin is a bore lol .. not the actors fault, not at all.
    It is the writing of the character and the persona of the character , and that is eehhh..

    I like ”Criminal Minds, Beyond Borders” and looking forward to seeing Matt in a hard drama role !
    (he is soooo wasted with GH))

      “Drab”? “No fire”? Again, are we watching the same show, you and I? Got those glasses at the ready–again? LOL 🙂

      Didn’t you think he was just great with Finola in their scenes??

        He has been great with Finola & Brooklyn as well as good with many others. I’m so happy they hired someone dedicated to his craft to be Finola’s stepson and a new doc on the show. His last rites scenes was nothing less than fantastic with so much fire.

    Is he leaving gh?

    Good, hopefully Beyond Borders will cast him as a series regular so he’ll be off GH. He’s not a good actor, and Griffin is not needed, nor is he an interesting character.

    The writers will make him the killer at GH

    Congrats to Matt; haven’t watched Beyond Borders but between Matt and the fabulous Gary Sinise I’ll check it out.

    They have completely wasted him on GH. He’s too mellow, lol. As for the story with Griffin, Nathan and Claudia, I think this is the worst GH has done yet in terms of dropping a story. They literally, FINALLY, had Nathan find out who he is…he slams him against the wall…and then nothing. Really poor mapping out their stories…too much break in continuity. Ridiculous.

    He is a very fine actor but GH hasn’t used him properly. They have cast him as a priest who is mild mannered and showing little emotion. I didn enjoy that kissing scene with Claudette. First time he showed any fire. That is the writers fault to misuse a real talent. He is from primetime and probably finds GH slow as molasses. They use him once every couple of weeks. I am happy he is finding work outside of soaps.

    I watch both Criminal Minds, Beyond Borders and General Hospital, so I am happy. Weird as it was announced at the end of season 1 that CMBB would not be renewed
    I really like him on GH. Griffin has me wondering and guessing– is Claudette going to show up with his child and who will he end up with, hopefully Maxie.
    Thank you Matt for not leaving GH and I ‘like be watching you on CMBB

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Part Three: Heartbreak, Revelations, A Surprise Guest!

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, it was the third installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018, which featured: three musical performances, a reveal to Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) that Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is Henrik Faison, Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) water breaking as she is in a car with Peter, and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) trying to cope with overhearing that Finn (Michael Easton) has deep feelings for Anna (Finola Hughes).

During the festivities, Ned (Wally Kurth) and his wife, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), take the stage and perform (What’s So Funny) Bout Peace, Love and Understanding, originally made famous by Elvis Costello. Later, in a tender performance Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Oscar (Garren Stitt) bring down the house performing, “I Never Knew” the most moving moment thus far at this year’s ball as Oscar’s parents, Kim (Tamara Braun) and Drew (Billy Miller) look on with pride.

While the performances are happening onstage, backstage the drama heats up after Finn admits to Anna that he has feelings for her and how he has never stopped thinking about her. Alexis overhears this whole confession to Anna.

Upset, Alexis heads out of the ball and past the stage, even though she was supposed to receive the Pioneer Award. She heads to the bar. Finn finds her, but Alexis would prefer to be alone. He leaves. Enter Julian (William deVry)! Will Julexis finally get back together, or will Alexis push Julian away? Elsewhere, Sam tells Jason about the lighter of Cesar Faison’s she found in Peter’s office and the P.K. Sinclair book. Jason realizes that Peter is Henrik. Meanwhile, Anna has texted Peter again to meet her. But Maxie. who is with Peter, tells him she wants him to take her home, because she isn’t feeling well. Later, her water breaks while driving in the car with Peter, and she urges him to pull over.
