Meanwhile, Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) has escaped and put his twin brother, Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) in his place at Ferncliff.  Ryan’s first stop is General Hospital! Will anyone get wind that this is not really Dr. Collins?

Words cannot express how much I hate these evil twin tales. They’re stale, frustrating, and are nothing but a fun change for the actors. I enjoy the Oscar/Drew/Kim relationship so there’s that. But Ava on the warpath again doesn’t thrill me either.

Unless they bring some kind of miracle to save Oscar, I honestly think they are “killing” off this character to make way for what could be, in their minds, a better and more interesting SL with Cam and Joss and possibly a transgender side story with he or his younger brother, if the show with them and Franco was any indication. I for one would not be able to watch if that was to happen. I could not watch a child go through something so traumatic, and the child actor having to act it out.

At first I thought there was no way they would kill off Oscar! It shocks me that they even went there (out of the blue). Second, Drew already lost his two sons (in a sense) as they turned out to be his nephews, three: Oscar’s adorable, sweet and a real asset to the show! Love his relationship with Drew, he could be a future member of the almost defunct Quartermaine family. Just a horrible decision if that’s what they’re doing.

I agree with the reasons you gave; budget. Making room for more story with Cam, perhaps featuring Liz’s younger son more with Terry as his support (if they’re doing a sexual identity story with Aidan).

Regardless of how this turns out Oscar’s story will probably be the catalyst that brings Drew and Kim together, perhaps Drew and Jason and if Julian is once again single…Julian and Alexis.

I’m searching spoilers because I’d really like to know that there’s going to be some cure out there for Oscar, whether it be some DNA from Drew, some miracle cure from Finn or Griffin (perhaps this brings him back to the hospital).

Ugh. Can’t even think of them killing Oscar off. Terrible decision if they do.

Violet Lemm

I agree. I really think though, that they are striving to sensationalize the connection between Terry and the support and advice she’ll be giving whatever boy that has the sexual identity problem. I am also hoping for a miracle cure from Finn or Griffen, and a relationship between Drew and Kim. I do like them together. I won’t call this a spoiler, but more of a rumor on numerous sites that Kim is not Oscar’s birth mother, so if true, that should come into play fairly soon, and whether it will help or hinder Oscar’s chances.

I’ve heard that and think it’s just a rumor. At least I hope so. I think she’s a great mom to him and they’re incredibly close!

Oscar cannot die! Can’t some crazy soap opera doctor save him?

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Hey, they should send Oscar over to DOOL. They have someone that just injects something mysterious into someone that brings them back to life. In some cases, not such a good idea.

Harry

I disagree–love this psychological thriller! I just wish they’d pick up the pacing.

rebecca1

I agree with you, Harry. I’m really looking forward to the story for numerous reasons: love Jon. He hasn’t had his own story in decades and seems they originally brought him back to play grandpa to Laura’s grandma. Second, it’s a blast from the past which is sorely needed. With nary a vet left, this hopefully will bring in (we know it’ll bring Laura and Felicia) but I’m hoping Mac, Scott and Lucy, as well.

Sadly, does’t seem from what I’ve seen off this site that we’re in the majority. From a poll I saw it was 80/20/ Eighty percent against. But then again, I haven’t seen a character or story that most seem to like. There are more complaints than applause. When GH takes its last bow, perhaps many will realize “you don’t appreciate what you have until it’s gone….”

Rebecca–you know I am usually the one engaging in a bitch session party of one. So if I am happy about a GH storyline, you better believe it’s good(is this another comment which will make me hate myself? It doesn’t take much these days). However, how can folks not love this storyline? Even if one did not watch Ryan and Kevin in the 90s, they saw the recently played flashbacks which featured Kevin and Ryan in a battle of wits in a house of mirrors. I love the idea of Russian doubles–how the darker double is a reflection of the darker terrain of the so called normal and lighter twin. Ryan is a dark, psychotic killer for sure but Kevin, with his surviver’s guilt merging with his obsession with his brother’s psychosis, has a dark side too. (Shay–are you out there? You asked me about this and I never answered–having some Internet issues as well as personal issues and I am trying to catch up). This is some fascinating material here and it was written right in the 90s. Not sure if the current writers are up for the task. The pacing is certainly way off. But Jon Lindstrom? Yeah, the guy is brilliant. He can make this work. This could be fun.

You should venture out of these walls and you’ll find plenty of company “partying” with you. I have never seen such a bunch of complainers in my life! It’s a wonder that the show lasted this long.

As for this story, the comments range from “yawn” to “boring” to “not interested” to “can’t the writers come up with anything new?”

Yep. That’s our fellow “travelers.”

Sorry you’re dealing with stuff. I can relate.

Shay

I’m here, Harry!!! But please don’t beat yourself up over your repeated use of the word “brilliant!” It can so seldom be applied to anything regarding GH these days, that when there is an appropriate moment, character or actor derserving of such praise, I say go for it!!! Ryan’s return is one of those rare occasions! Even though the buildup to his ultimate reveal was excruciatingly slow from the moment we simultaneously suspected Kevin’s darker half had resurfaced earlier this past spring—-either in spirit or the flesh—-it has been well worth the wait! I have to admit I laughed uproariously when Ryan triumphantly walked into GH for the first time in decades….such a promising and tantalizing possibility for some first-rate mirth and merriment Chamberlain-style!!! I cannot wait!!!! Plus, the prospect of the lovely Laura walking into this hornets’ nest of utter insanity should finally provide Genie Francis with a dramatic storyline commensurate with her undeniably abundant wellspring of talent, and that is indeed something which is to be celebrated! P.S. Hope both your cyber and personal issues have been addressed and put to rest….it’s simply not the same here without your “brilliant” commentary! (There, I said it…)

Steve

Agreed about the pacing. Lindstrom is recurring (as is James Patrick Stuart who is often seen twice a week).

As Ryan has presumably been out of society for 25 years, it would be interesting to see him react to tech advancements like the smartphone, starting a car with a button and flat-screen TVs. Also, the hospital has been entirely rebuilt since he was last in there. These are the beats we’ll probably miss out on.

Harry
Harry

Steve–exactly! It ‘s enough to make me wish the old head writer from the 90s would come back.

Patrick

dang ! TWO Jon Lindstrom … OKAY sensation (s) he’s handsome – AND – acts

i’m certain the writing will – not – do this and any storyboard on the canvas justice. my one hope… is that this features , Mac and Felicia… TOP OF THE LINE front burner PLEASE

I’m just waiting with baited breath… another “trio” that can act their arses off: Kevin/Laura/Spencer … with Drew / Kim / Oscar … With Brad / Lucas / and son…

Harry

Jon Lindstrom is so good. How good was he telling the orderly as Ryan about Ryan’s sociopathy? Then Ryan shows up as Kevin in the lobby of GH. You see Ryan looking around the lobby with a self satisfied smile on his face. He winks coyly at the nurse. Kevin would never have winked at a nurse! The bad pacing is daunting the intrigue of this story, however. We see Ryan enter the hospital lobby on Monday and then don’t see him all week! Previews and spoilers don’t show him making an appearance next week either. I mean, really, do we need to see Mike screaming and yelling over and over? I loved Mike at first but frankly, he’s now getting on my nerves. They have ruined his Alzheimer’s story line with the body being buried in the basement of Charlie’s bar. But back to the brilliance that is Jon Lindstrom, Michael E Knight once spoke of how good his co star, David Canary was playing Adam pretending to be Stuart. MEK said he always appreciated the subtle brilliance of David Canary playing Adam impersonating Stuart. I feel the same can be said of Jon Lindstrom playing Ryan impersonating Kevin.

I think your comment is brilliance personified! 😉

OH heck. Sigh. Rebecca! Ha ha! I know you’re responding to my earlier, unedited, comment. I love Michael Fairman’s new format but it also makes me kind of hate myself. When my unedited comment came back to me I was mortified about how bad it was. It was self conscious, idiotic and full of purple prose. At one point I apologized for mixing my metaphors but I had not even utilized one metaphor so there were no metaphors to mix. I probably wrote “brilliant” about 12 times, hence your sardonic response. All I can say is I attended a friend’s wedding and over indulged in the spirits which I do not normally do. Again, I hate myself. Sincerely, Idiocy personified.

I’m lovin’ the edit button, too. We can curse each other out and attack with abandon and then go back and erase it all. Ahhhhhhh!!! If only that had been an option on the old site. I would’ve been slinging mud at my detractors in various different forms and editing accordingly! And I could have caught that blooper I made when I posted with a different name that one time and forgot to change my name back!!! It was soooo funny! And the shite I took…the “gotcha!” that was flung…oh, the “good old days.” But I digress.

See! Can’t win for tryin’. You, Harry, don’t need to back peddle, apologize, go into any lengthy explanation about your original post (pre-edit). You’re way too self-conscious! And too hard on yourself! We’re here to beat the crap out of each other if someone disagrees with our individual “brilliance”; no one cares about mixing metaphors (unless they’re used to sling crap during a “feisty exchange”; then one could point out the errors and request that the attack be at least grammatically correct). Ahem.

I do have to correct you though…not on metaphors! You said I gave you a “sardonic response.” That would imply it was negative when it was a playful response. A compliment purposely using the same word you thought you overused.

I’m currently walking on water. Not in that “regal” sense of self but had a flood under my sink which has collapsed the floor of the cabinet which has caused water to seep under the floor into parts of the living room. If you see a cute chick with curly hair and a black cat floating past your house, that’d be me and my baby girl.

The flood is just a minor part of what’s happening in my life right now; oh, if we could just hang in a cafe and chat for a bit the stories we could tell…

I like Mike.Anyone that has had to deal with with this disease knows it can be horrific. Mental disease is horrific in general so don’t get rid of Mike he is a very good actor playing a difficult role.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Three: Trouble Looms For Ava, Cameron’s Heartfelt Song, A Liesl & Franco Duet

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the third installment of the Nurses’ Ball 2019 and this time there were several musical numbers to discuss, as well as story points moving forward.

Obrecht was back and in her full glory and that meant great news to GH fans to see Kathleen Gati appear on the Nurses’ Ball stage again.  However, Dr. O brought with her a friend, none other than Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) who joined Frau Liesl in a rendition of the Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb duet “Guilty”.   The combo, obviously a play on how they do bad things to others (or have), and they have nothing to feel guilty about!  Then, there was that drop the mic moment, literally!

Cameron (William Lipton) has shown up at the Corinthos’ home to give Josslyn (Eden McCoy) a video message from Oscar (Garren Stitt) that he was holding on to per Oscar’s dying request to give to Joss.  Before he leaves, she asks Cameron to stay and watch it with her, but he tells her she should do this alone.  Later, Josslyn watches the video on her laptop.  Contained in the video is Oscar saying how grateful he was for their time together and that he hopes she will lives life to the fullest, starting with singing their song at the Nurses’ Ball.   Next, Josslyn comes down the stairs of the house in her gown ready to honor Oscar and she heads out to the ball.

When Joss arrives, Cameron is now taking the stage.  William Lipton performs a song he wrote called “North Star” against the backdrop of emotional images of the friendship between Cameron, Josslyn, and the late Oscar.  (You can watch it below.  It was one of the highlights of the ball thus far)

Lipton took to his Twitter account after the outpouring of kudos and support after his performance aired expressing: “Thank you so much for all your kind words for the song Cam was singing at The spotlight should be at the GH writers who inspired me to write this song. Their words in the script were so beautiful.”

Ava Jerome also took to the stage as the marvelous Maura West performed “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” as only Ava J. would do! A sultry chanteuse is this Port Charles bad girl, whose night may go from a cool performance to a nightmare now that a gloved figure has knocked out Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), which only leads to one conclusion .. serial killer Ryan is back.  Will Ava get her vengeance and kill the guy, or will someone else?

Elsewhere in story, Finn (Michael Easton) proposed to Anna (Finola Hughes) on-stage at the ball, and though it was a typical bumbling clumsy moment from Finn, it was all the same endearing, especially when Anna says “yes” to his proposal.  Later, the two spend some alone time where Finn explains why he chose the ring he did; harkening back to when she was blackmailing him in Europe (It was a Monaco blue sapphire he chose, and Monaco was the place where they started their unlikely pairing).

Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) tries to warn Sam (Kelly Monaco) about Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but her parents Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) come to her aid, and then Sonny once again threatens Shiloh.  Later, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) gets a call from Diane Miller that Nina (Michelle Stafford) overhears.  On the call, Willow mentions her baby’s father is in Port Charles.  Nina learns Willow had a baby, and Shiloh looks at Willow.

Laura (Genie Francis) and Curtis (Donnell Turner) are rescued in Canada, and Laura calls Kevin’s cellphone but it goes to voice message to warn him about Ryan heading to Port Charles.   Meanwhile, Curtis calls Chase (Josh Swickard) and tells him that Ryan Chamberlain is alive. and on his way to most probably the Nurses’ Ball.

So, what musical number did you enjoy the most on Tuesday’s Nurses’ Ball?  What did you think of Anna and Finn getting engaged?  Shiloh overhearing the news about Willow?  Josslyn receiving the video message from Oscar to perform at the ball? Comment below.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Two: Cameron and the Llama, Anna’s Speech, Chase Dazzles

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, it was day two of the annual Nurses’ Ball, and things kicked-off with the opening number by the GH nursing staff, (except Elizabeth) performing the classic hit “Best of My Love” by the Emotions.   After the number, the drama started to unfold as the GH Nurses’ Ball always intersects storylines with the event.

Scott’s (Kin Shriner) plan goes awry when he opens Lucy’s (Lynn Herring) hotel room door hoping to find her making out with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), but only Kevin is there, as Ava (Maura West) figures out what Scott has been up to.  Kevin and Ava are continuing their ruse to try to lure Ryan out of hiding, but seem to be enjoying each others company more than they admit.

When Mike (Max Gail)  and Yvonne (Janet Hubert) arrive. they show off the engagement ring that Mike gave to Yvonne, which Finn (Michael Easton) sees and realizes that is his engagement ring to Anna (Finola Hughes) that he has been looking for.  Finn talks to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and they come up with an emergency plan to get the ring back, which goes off without hitch by Finn giving Mike the fake one Robert (Tristan Rogers) had.

Watching the ball at home, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) is with Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth), and Kris flips out when she sees Sam (Kelly Monaco) with Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) at the festivities.  Meanwhile, Peter (Wes Ramsey) lowers the boom on Shiloh telling him that Molly (Haley Pullos) will be doing an expose on “Dawn of Day”.  At the same time Jason (Steve Burton) and Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) hatch their own plot to nab Shiloh, and are setting up surveillance cameras at DOD.

Backstage, Cameron (William Lipton), who is ready to perform solo finds Lucy’s llama. and in the most touching moment of the episode has a heart-to-heart with the animal about losing Oscar.  William Lipton throughout the episode was terrific.

Now we come to Anna and Robert.  Anna wants to set her ex straight by telling him that she will always love him, but she wants to marry Finn, and she doesn’t know what he is up to … but to stop it – since it appears Robert is trying to be the interloper in Anna’s romance with Finn.  Later, Finn tells Robert he has his ring back and will propose to Anna

Courtesy/ABC

Next, after a rousing intro by Lucy, Chase (Josh Swickard) performs “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay and brings the house down and brings his gal, Willow (Katelyn MacMullan) to the stage with him to dance and finish the musical number.

As the episode comes to its conclusion, three plot points emerge:  Kristina shows up at the ball ready to confront Shiloh, as Sam looks horrified.

Cameron shows up to the Corinthos’ home to talk to Josslyn and convince her to come to the ball with him and perform, because the song is a duet, and he says to her that he has a message from Oscar to give her.

Lastly, Robin could not make it to the Nurses’ Ball this year. The annual moving speech falls to her mother, Anna to deliver about surviving and living with HIV (touchingly delivered by Finola Hughes).  Robert says he will join her on stage, because Robin is his daughter too.  From the sidelines, Robert and Finn start to watch Anna’s emotional speech,  Robert finally tells Finn he better make Anna happy. but knocks him in the arm in the process.  Finn drops the engagement ring and it ends up at Anna’s feet onstage.  She looks to the sidelines and sees both men.  Can she figure out who just proposed?

So, what was your favorite moment from the second installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019? Comment below.
