Graham is Ashleys half brother…

Celia

Yes, Jimmy. I surmised that soon after Graham appeared, and I did mention it. But, I, actually, thought he was Dina’s. I also thought he would be a good match for Ashley until we all became uneasy with his calculating attitude.
Graham became aware of that fact when Dina told him who had fathered Ashley. Graham’s expression visibly changed.
Graham was a looker in his youth (by his High School yearbook photo), I must say!!

I didn’t see the pic of Graham in his youth, but I think he is still very hot. Did you see the scenes with He and Gloria in the steam room?

I only watch occasionally but i like to see Graham become ruthless…take away the company from the Abbots…like i told su…Jack needs a new feud with someone other than Snicker Newman-lol

Boy was he ever hot in his youth. Reminded me of Steve Bond, who was on GH in the 80s. But, Celia, do you think his acting chops are up to this part? I find him very weak and expressionless. I loved the showdown scene, special kudos to terrific Eileen Davidson, but I really hope Graham is soon to be a bad memory.

Celia
Guest

@Soaphound. I did have great expectations of Graham, Soaphound. I really thought he’d be redeemed, somehow…..be part of the Abbott family. Yet, after today’s episode, leaving Dina for dead, on the floor, makes him a fiend, with indefensible actions. I detest him. I know it’s a soap, but I wouldn’t do that to my worst enemy ( if I had one). I find his acting lacking, as well. I do believe he will be a bad memory…..after today’s stunt, what can they possibly do with him? It’s obvious Graham wants Dina dead…..can’t change the will that way. However, I’m assuming… Read more »

hey Jimh..
of course Graham is family..
I like Graham, I wish they put a fire under him, fire him up !

Graham is a great CEO and he should have been hired at Brash & Sassy to take Ashely down, the Abbots down..
that would have made for some good stories. (but they put Lily in ahaaa!)

I believe Graham wants to take on Ashley but I think he has softened towards Dina.

Graham, it seems, su, has been brainwashed by his mother…rightly so, I guess, albeit I would never do that to a child of mine. Dina was a bed-hopper? She stole Graham’s step-father from him and his mother. He grew up with rancor and rage towards the Abbotts, in general, and sought revenge. I would have liked the story better if Graham had been Dina’s bio son, given away at birth and finally finding each other….. ……or, have him and Ashley be half-siblings. As Mary said, the plot would have had more merit and would have been more compelling. I do… Read more »

Take Ashley down? Why, su? She’s the best thing that ever happened to the Abbotts. She’s the glue that keeps them together–especially with the teo miscreant brothers with whom she had to deal for all these years.
No, sweet SuzieQ….take Jack down, but not Ashley.

I don’t want the secret to come out!

Graham sure has been biding his time. He’s been with Dina for at least a year. We still need to find out why Dina needs him.

Celia

You and stevie g are absolutely right. Graham still maintains his “hot” factor, Mo.

need to ask your opine: I liken Graham as a dastardly natural villain.. that every show needs.

JUST, like : Rob Scott Wilson’ Ben @Days : he’s blowing me away.

yeah, right ?

I read posts that “mentioned” the sauna scenes with Gloria

well whatayaknow… peaked my triggers

he’s hotted out! reminds me of Guiding Light Robert Newman. Yike

youtube spoiler – ” A devil among them ”

even Y&R needs some fresh doozy… Victor and Jack aren’t shooting

I think the initial storyline was a rewrite-at first, it was a storyline based on Dina’s failing health (Alzheimer’s or Dementia) and then at some point a rewrite took place, making Graham Ashley’s half brother, I think…it doesn’t seem as though Dina needs Graham as much as she did in the beginning.

Mo
Guest
Mo

I agree. I think they changed Graham’s story to make him Ashley’s half-brother. When he first came to town he was all hot to trot to return to Paris. If he wanted the secret to come out, he wouldn’t have wanted to return to Paris so badly. So I do think the writers decided (after Graham was on the scene) to make him Ashley’s half-brother.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Could be adina was bamboozled. But, you’re right, Mo….some stuff just doesn’t add up.
Nonetheless, something does add up…Graham has designs on Abby. All that money is like a magnet. And, we know his hunger for money—-a very persuasive cad.

Graham Cracker is Ashley’s half brother. I like it. The actor who plays Graham has loosened up and has gotten better on the show. I was thinking Ashley may be John’s after all but they decided to keep her a Davis. Great drama on its way!

Since Graham was Brent’s stepson, not real son, Graham is not related to Ashley in any way, shape or form. The yearbook said his name was Davis, Brent might have adopted him at some point– but Graham said Brent was his step father. it would have been more dramatic Graham was related to Ashley, but since he is now becoming a big A hole I am glad they are not.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yes, Mary….as we found out today, Ashley and Graham are not siblings……which strengthens the fact that a potential relationship may blossom between them.
Now that there is a rift between him and Dina, what purpose would there be for Graham? TPTB need to think of something fast !!
There will be a love triangle—Ashley, Graham and Abby. That’s a story!!

Maybe, just maybe, Graham is John’s biological son.

Hi, Judith,
I think many thought the same thing. I can’t remember when, but the subject was discussed a few times on the show since I’ve been watching.
I wasn’t born yet, but my grandmother told me that Ashley knew since the 80’s. I think Victor knows, as well.

Iakovos

I do like the idea of Ashley and Graham being half-siblings. It opens for Ashley to have some new story outside the holding-pattern Ravi romance. I wonder if the red herring (was it?) of Dina’s dementia is something that will develop or if she will be a grande dame for the future. (I like that.) And what of Graham’s chair-bound mother. I see no need to that character to be kept. That said, if Graham is staying around, then he needs something vital to do. Brash & Sassy is a perfect place for him and it give us some antagonism… Read more »

I completely agree with you about Greg and Camryn Grimes. They had terrific chemistry. It’s a shame Greg’s return wa a short one. He played his scenes for all they were worth. I would have loved him to stay on as a single parent as well. With him in town we would have hopefully have seen more of Esther as well as Gloria. I loved her bonding scenes with Kevin. I thought when they made such a fuss over Gloria’s return they were going to give her as wells the rest of the Baldwins a ax juicy story. I oobviously… Read more »

I must have missed the episode when Dina told Graham who Ashley’s father is!

Mo

She didn’t tell Graham who Ashley’s father is, but she did say John Abbott is not. Graham pressed who to tell him who her father is, but Dina refused. Of course, she already said too much.

classic y n r!!
love the slow build and big payoff climax!
So nice to see Tracey on screen and would ve been extra juicy if Graham seduced lonely Tracey. Ash would’ve flipped double time.
Vic was a big supporter of Ash s career and her secret about her paternity , it would ve been sweet to see him there for Ash and his daughter in wanting to protect both from not exposing the Abbott name inspite of his feelings for Jack.

Damien, I so agree, classic y n r for I also love the slow build and big payoff climax…I hope and pray that Mal Young continues with character driven stories and bring on some mystery and suspense…

All goods points, damien….but, Victor did not know what was about to go down; not to mention, good ole Vic was too busy playing havoc with his children’s lives.
The Ashley/Graham plot had all the ingredients a good, slow-cooking stew needs to savor the end result.
Your first sentence says it best…..almost describing the crescendo of a love scene. Bravi, writers.

I don’t see how Nick can give away money he doesn’t own currently. Is he supposed to force Victor’s hand so that Victor has to give it back to him or to charity on his behalf? I don’t get that part.

Yeah. This must be the worst storyline, T. Nick and Ckelsea are so out of sync, I want to puke.
It is so inconceivable for me to think a father ( Victor) would do that to his own child. But, we’re talking about Victor….everything goes. And, Nick…what the hey!!!! Is this a game? Stupid writing.
I love my Y&R—thank goodness the Ashley/Graham story added suspense. Looks like Y&R of old. Kudos.

The Abbott’s are now beating the Newman’s on the excitement richter scale. I love it! I barely got through Nicholas mumbling away on the Hillary Hour because I was too excited about the Abbott action. I guess we all knew Grant was Ashley’s half brother. Loved it when Grant said to her,”You will find out I am not the bastard here.” I loved the clever word play. I do like Graham and I adore Dina. That woman cracks me the hell up. She manages to be adorable and conniving at the same time. And the Jack vs Billy war? Well,… Read more »

“Another bone of contention–Traci has always been the invisible Abbott. Her mother favored Jack and her father favored Ashely calling her “my beauty.” This always bothered the heck out of me.” Me too! Not to mention they had to KILL OFF her only child. Yet, Traci just keeps picking herself up again and again especially for the insipid, Abby. I cannot WAIT until Abby turns her mother’s situation into a “poor me” one now that she is NOT Abbott blood. Besides, once the truth comes out about her sex ring boyfriend, she is going to have a whole world of… Read more »

Yes, Chrystie. I like Abby, but she does have a knack of turning everything on herself.
You make me laugh, my friend…..she will have a breakdown….right about the time Melissa leaves ( maternity ).
Notice how “Abby” always carries something to hide her growing tummy?

Harry
Guest

Abby is so adept at making everything all about her. As she watches drama unfold you see her brows furrow as she ponders,”How do I make this all about me?” I swear, Abby’s only purpose seems to be to bust into an interesting scene, suck the oxygen out of the room by boring everyone half to death. Her mantra seems to be,”I am so sick of being stuck in the middle of the Abbott and Newman war.” I half expected her to make that redundant plaintive wail upon learning that her Grandpa is not John Abbott. But of course that… Read more »

I was floored on how bad the acting was in the big scene today at the end of the show. Was this the crack that broke the head writers back, and got them fired?? It was a big letdown, especially from Max Shippee (Graham.) And even Beth Maitland (Traci) whom I always love seeing looked so bad with her mouth wide opened as she realized that Ashley is now only her half-sister. I have to hope that Friday’s show has a different director. To have such a big build up, only to have it as a big letdown, is disappointing… Read more »

I do not disagree with your summation but maybe that it why I liked it!
I could use some good old fashioned escapism right now.
The Northern California fires have gotten me really down—2017 has been a lousy year so yes, I could use a little campy, soapy, old fashioned fun.

dmr

I agree. I thought Beth Maitland’s acting was “off”-she appeared to be, well, (fake) acting. I think the storyline just turned out to be so stupid (IMO).

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yes, dmr. The storyline is nothing to gush about. But, I cannot deny the superlative acting by a select few, as I have mentioned.
I think that the fact we already knew Ashley was not an Abbott killed the climax at first breath.
Again, as Mary SF said….the plot would have been much more impactful had Graham and Ashley been siblings.

Agreed! I was very under-whelmed by the climax! Eileen and the others always rock it, but Shippee was pretty rough. Hopefully he’ll loosen up as time goes on?

I am very involved in this whole storyline. Even though I have watched Y and R since it began, I don’t recall how Dina proved to Ashley that Brent Davis was her real father.. was there a DNA test, or blood test? Can anyone help me out with this. All I remember was Ashley was involved with Marc Mergeron and that he turned out to be her half-brother, right?

Is there proof that Brent is really Ashley’s father?

Either way, I hate to see Graham leave the show. I really like the character.

I don’t know why everyone is so shocked because Ashley found out years ago that Brent was her father and that John wasn’t . No bit whoop

I thought the episode was sort of lackluster. As much as I love Eileen Davidson, I wish the TPTB would find a suitable love interest for her. I would love to see an old-fashioned love story for Ashley. I can’t stand Graham. He’s so creepy. The actor must be doing his job well because I find the way that he delivers his lines creepy and slimy. If I were Ashley and I saw a photo of Graham in a yearbook with my biological father’s last name, I would have automatically thought that he was my half brother. Not sure that… Read more »

DMR, there is a rumor out there that Michael E Knight is coming back as Doctor Neville. The rumor mill is saying that it will be Victor Newman who summons this miracle doctor to tend to his very sick daughter, Victoria Newman.
I really hope this turns out to be true.
I really like Ravi but he doesn’t quite fit with Ashley. I thought Simon and Ashley were a great pair and would like that to see that relationship realize its potential.
Moreover, I am a huge Michale E Knight fan.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
