The baby Wiley custody hearing takes center stage, but Brad’s (Parry Shen) secret that baby Wiley is really Nelle and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son is still safe at the moment, but for how long?  And … what will happen when the original Wiley’s birth mother is MIA?

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

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.

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.

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…)

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.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nikolas & Spencer’s Reunion Leaves Ava Attempting To Bring Peace: What Did You Think Of The Key Scenes?

The long-awaited and highly-anticipated reunion of Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and his son, Spencer aired on Monday’s episode of General Hospital.  And it reminded us all how much we love Nicolas Bechtel as the young Cassadine.

While Ava (Maura West) first talks with Spencer in order to prepare him for his father’s appearance and that he is alive; when Nikolas shows up and receives a hug from Spencer, it appeared all might be OK between them, but how could it be? Nikolas let his son believe he was dead for over three years!

Next, Spencer lays into his father for choosing claiming the Cassadine fortune and keeping hidden over telling him that he was alive; leaving Spencer alone with two broken legs, in a boarding school in Europe, and grief-stricken.

The best scenes were actually shared by Maura West and Bechtel, when Ava tries to reason with the disappointed and disillusioned young man over his father’s return, which has a double meaning for her.  She says, “The person you love most in the world just came back to you. That makes you the luckiest boy on the planet. Can’t you see that?”  For Ava, she is obviously drawing a parallel to her losing her daughter, Kiki and wishing she was alive.

Then, it’s the return of Nicolas Bechtel as Spencer Cassadine as Nikolas with Ava in tow, finally tells his son that he is alive! Looks like Spencer will not be as forgiving as one thought. Will he seek revenge on his father?

The end of the teaser, reveals gun-fire and a shoot out that goes down on the pier that could change the course of lives forever, with it looking like Mayor Laura has bee shot.  How will this all turn out?
