Silas Reveals His Secret Past To Sam On General Hospital!



It looks like the couple now known as “Siam”, none other than Port Charles Silas (Michael Easton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) are headed for some relationship troubles and more … given the long awaited reveal on today’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital!

For several weeks, Silas has been getting phone calls from newly implanted PCPD Detective Nathan West (Ryan Paevey).  And if you have not seen today’s episode you may not want to read on, but if you do, here is what was revealed!

In key scenes where Sam confronts Silas, viewers learn that Silas has a wife named Nina!  She has been at a special care facility for over 20 years and is for all intent and purposes brain dead.   As much as Silas wanted to take his wife off life support, Nina’s well-to-do parents forbid him to go anywhere near their daughter, and have been in charge of her care.

However, that’s not all folks.  Silas tells Sam that when his marriage to Nina fell on some rocky times, which is when he visited Ryan’s Bar and met Ava Jerome and had an affair with her.   When Silas’ wife found out about the affair she  overdosed and tried to kill herself.  Sam asks Silas one last question, “Why are the police involved?”  And next we learn when the scene cuts to Nathan West talking to Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) at the PCPD that he is investigating if Silas had anything to do with his wife taking the pills, in other words … is Silas being investigated for attempted murder… or murder?

So GH fans we ask you, what do you think of the story set-up?  Is it intriguing to you?  Do you like what the secret is?  What do you think will happen next? Will Sam and Silas bond together or break apart as this story continues to pick up steam? Let us know!

I Love GH

This is not what I expected, but it’s juicy. Sam prizes honesty, something Jason did well. This may hurt Siam… I think I’d be okay with that. I like Silas with Carly or Alexis better; even Ava. I’m not sure why because those two have greeaat chemistry – loved them as Caleb & Livvie and Sam & John McB.


Sam does not value honesty. Sam values Sam and what’s good for Sam. If honesty suits her purpose, Sam will be honest. If lying works better, she goes that way.

The woman is a con.


Ok..Silas told his secret today….

I’m glad he told her…..But why did he had to wait for the Police come in
Hottie Cop Nathan!!!!

I think Sam is going to bust the case….+ Silas….

It would be great for Sam and Silas bond over his secret….

But I wonder what Nina might look like…..I betcha she’s gonna look like Sam!!!

But I hope Silas and Sam stay the course!!!!!

but Nathan is a Fine Young Man!!!

How can it be 20 years ago? How old is Silas anyway?


Yes! That was exactly my thought reading this reveal. He was married 20 years ago? And his history with Ava goes back two decades ago as well? Oooookaaaay.

That’s the problem with stretching out a secret the audience isn’t originally in on for so long. Expectations are higher as the “hype” gets built. Then you finally (at long, drawn out, last!) find out and unless it’s really, really good, it’ll bust.

Conspiracy Theorist

Kiki is 21.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

M.E. is 46 so Silas could be the same age…his daughter Lauren(kiki) is like 21…so Silas had to be around 25 when she was born…so Silas was perhaps 23 or 24 when he married Nina. Maybe Nina learned of Silas’s affair with Ava and attempted suicide which left her in a coma but her parents believe Silas and Ava tried to kill her or Silas practice a medical procedure on her without yet earning his medical license and as a result Nina fell into a coma…the possibilities! In any case i bet Silas wont become the Chief Of Staff and Monica will get her old job back!


Well, Michael is 46, so it’s entirely possible that he was married 20 years ago. Sounds like it was a short marriage before she went into the coma.


Kassie de Piva may play Nina…..that’s what I heard..

I might be wrong!!!


Oh, gosh!

wouldn’t that be something…

could this rescue Roger Howarth…

no matter what they seem to try… it’s lost spark and interest is waning.. faster than “paint drying” LOL that is: filler… Carly and Franco

giving Roger a whole new someone… character… would reunite the sizzling through the roof… pairing… ex Todd and ex Blair

heck… make it Tea Delgado


It make sense to make her Tea…..Tea and Sam do have the look…

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Hope your right…then if she wakes up she can come to PC and have an affair with Franco!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

And maybe she really hasnt been in coma as long as Silas has thought and her parents kept this a secret…now Nina has recovered but has no memory of what happened to her…and thats one of the reasons Nathan is investgating…also perhaps Nathan is Ninas secret son and his father is Franco…then K.D. and R.H. could reunite on the show!


I’m pretty sure you’re wrong.


I find this to be very intriguing. I didn’t expect the story to go in this direction. I have read comments that many think Nina will wake up and cause angst for Silas and Sam. I don’t think so because it would be very unrealistic for her to wake up after 20 years and be able to function and communicate well. I definitely feel there is more to the story…Why is this so important to Nathan? Sam needs to forgive Silas! I know she is upset but she has a very sordid past, did she forget? Perhaps she is acting this way because she really cares more for Silas than she thought.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe she hasnt been in coma that long…maybe she woke up years ago and her parents kept the news a secret from Silas!


I can’t help but roll my eyes watching the righteous indignation coming from Sam.

She’s slept with married men, including her mothers husband, almost from her entry on the show – I count three. She’s killed people, watched children be kidnapped, then taunted their mother about it. She’s married men and conned them out of their money. She hired men with guns to threaten children and their mother just to keep them away from Jason, then as recently as last year she got involved and was kissing all over another man who was involved with someone else, while she was married.

So is what Silas did any worse than her list of sins? Has Sam told Silas about her past?


You don’t like Sam right!!!!

Sound a Liasion fan

…..I got it….


Thank you MC! I think we need to be reminded from time to time about Sam’s past (and many other character’s pasts, too!).
It always strikes me as hilarious when these people get up on their high horses, and spout their righteous indignation, when they live in glass house!.


You must be a bitter liz fan, cant talk bout your fav since shes been backburned so you have to hate on sam


What is intriguing for me is why it is so important to Detective West. He looks like an grown up Rafe… could he be Nina and Silas’ son?


Or maybe the dark-haired, blue-eyed look is purely coincidental. Seems the latest handpicked himbo (Detective West) is but the latest in a long line of “Cartini Clones.” As some one who is a fan of “fair-haired boys,” this personal penchant of theirs is driving me crazy….doesn’t anyone else find it extremely odd that there are practically no blond men in Port Charles?????

Beth CP

Just guessing here. Between D and Nathan’s “trading notes” sequence about their respective Bensonhurst and Manhattan birthplaces, along with Silas dropping that he and Nina met at Columbia University which is located on the upper west side of Manhattan (I believe), there may be a tie-in that Nina is Nathan’s older sister. She was with Silas and went into the coma when Nathan was a kid and now as a detective, wants to find the truth about what and who put her in that coma. If Ava gets taken down too that’s a bonus. Only with the solving of the case will Nina be removed from life support. If by some chance they don’t share the same name, Nathan could be a half brother, an adopted sibling, or a close cousin.


Interesting theory but that would mean that Nathan has lied to everyone about just recently being assigned to this cold case. If he’s Nina’s brother on a mission, what took him so long? I think maybe Nathan is either Britt’s brother or ex-husband. Her last name is Westbourne, his is West. They look similar, too.

Sandra Norcross

She’s so going to wake up! When she does we will find out Nina didn’t try to kill herself. Ava forced her to take the pills! When Nina didn’t die Ava got scared. She wanted to protect herself & her unborn child so she stayed away.


I am so sick of them dredging up OLD news from another show and stuffing them down the throats of REAL GH fans. I have been watch GH for
Or over 40 years and don’t give damn about Silas old love life. It is not SAMs problem. Trying to keep an old dead show alive by putting its characters in to choke down. GH will most likely bring reason to eventually hill off general too and replace it with another nauseating intelligence insulting talk show ôrworse a reality show.

GH is the only soap I watch. I am disabled NOT stupid. Please start another NEW soap with its own characters. Not people who are wrapped up in other shows.

We NEED Jason back no matter what he costs!!!

as I read this back I see many problems with spacing, pun


I loved it! Michael Easton is so excellent as Silas. Great acting with both Easton and Kelly Monaco…I was completely thrown off with the story line can’t wait to find out what happens next 🙂


I had the same theory but two things worked against it; Nathan do not seem to have the mannerisms of a person who would have been taught in elite private schools and who would have access to world travel, that you would expect from a person born or raised in wealth and power. I get the feeling Nina’s family is old money New York. Silas would have recognized Nathan’s last name or at least Nina would have mentioned her brother or had some photos of him in all the years she was married to Silas.


There’s no such thing as a dead wife on soaps!


Will it be found that Ava is the cause of Nina’s coma ?

Connie Delle Donne

I’m hoping Silas and Sam make it through this roadblock. Their chemistry is so DAMN HOT! Sam and Silas belong together. I hope Sam forgives Silas and they can move with their relationship. I really would like to see how their love story unfolds. As actors they are wonderful to watch! Their New Years love scene was smoking HOT!


I agree with you .. on the chemistry with Sam and Silas

I loved that Silas… put his foot down… “before you kick me out… and want nothing to do with me… YOU are going to HEAR me out”

they may not feature them… as much as we’d like… but.. the writing does reel me back in… good for ME’ Silas… by Sam reaction… I think she needed that and liked his strong backbone

which begs the question… all the couples on GH are on the outs… I was a little surprised, that Lulu was telling Luke that she left Dante

Maxie and Spinelli are a bust
ellie and SPinelli are gone
no more Connie and Sonny
will AJ and Liz heat up?

don’t even get me started on Patrick and Robin… more out than in

even Ava and Morgan are missing.. thanks to Julian

i’m sure there’s more…

save for Britta and Nicholas.. and I thank the heavens for this pair.. LOVE them

so… the writers.. are wringing out all the ethos pathos and logos for … pushing.. Carly and Franco…for the audience to accept them… I will give them, so cute looking together

Heather nuts up and we all rally around Carly… as she tears up…

just saying


This storyline has potential. I’m finally warming up to the Silas and Sam pairing and I think it finally got interesting.

But PLEASE do not make him GH’s Chief of Staff! That is Monica’s job and I need my Quartermaine fix. The Qs are hardly ever featured anymore 🙁


reminds me of Sunny_von_Bülow‎ and her doctor husband Claus.


whoops – got that case mixed up with Dr. Herman Tarnower’s murder case! well, reminds me of both cases! 😀


This is not so much a story as it is just a feeble attempt to create problems and drama. Sam was involved with a career murderer for years and she pegged him as a saint. This should make Silas look like a major hero in Sams eyes using her warped logic.

Lucille Johnson

I think Ava Jerome gave Silas’ wife the pills to overdose because wanted to get her out of their lives. Ava wanted Silas all to herself. But they still have not revealed that Ava killed Connie ( Sonny’s fiancee) and framed AJ Quartermaine.


Best storyline on gh right now. Lots of ways this can go. No doubt that when Sam cares about someone…she goes the distance for them, and I expect she will unravel this mystery. I don’t think Silas or Ava tried to kill Nina. i do think Nathan is related to Nina…maybe he’s even Silas and Eva’s son. She could have been pregnant when she went brain dead. I totally believe Silas was telling the truth when he said he didn’t do it. This is a mystery, and I love a good mystery. I also love a good love story, and it looks like Siam have fallen for each other.


ooops….Meant to say Nathan could be Silas and Nina’s son. My mistake.

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.”


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.

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.

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.
