Ashley then added in her own tweet: ” Good to be back in Port Charles.”

So, excited to see Parker back in Kristina’s orbit? What do you hope happens next in their relationship? Comment below!

Personally, would rather see Aaron back in the mix, but if it gets me some Lexi scenes, I’m happy.

I believe this.

just a happy trio… oy : Kristina / Parker / Aaron. till Kristina makes that decision

just a fun loving trio who are not bogged down by any thing or “any one” in all of Port Charles.

isn’t that a relief. PLUS this trio ALL have acting skill

bring this back long term… so we can forget about the NUmob.

I also liked Aaron. However, as someone who works in higher education, I can’t tell you how distasteful it is to see a storyline where a professor sleeping with a student is treated like a grand romance. In the real world, this is called sexual harassment, and university employees (especially instructors at ALL levels – even grad students) have to go thru seminars before stepping foot in the classroom that will outline the HUGE conflicts of interest that even the *suggestion* of a relationship could cause.

I really don’t want to see a connection as I don’t see any chemistry berween them. She is too old for her and not a great actress. I would rather not see her back as too many actors come and go just for a limited number of episodes. Slow down the returns and give the seasoned actors the best storyline. This is what keeps viewers watching for years.

Yes, Parker and Kristina look like they could be mother and daughter. I was happy when this story dropped away.

Shay
Guest

Perhaps that’s the point, Carrie…Krissie’s sudden crush on Parker after having been involved with and even previously married to only males always screamed “Mommy issues” to me. We never saw any indication prior to this storyline that the character had any attraction whatsoever to females when she was mixing within her own peer group as a teenager….this sudden switch came out of nowhere in the form of a sensational storyline centered around Professor Parker and why this angle was never explored is beyond me. If Krissie had been doing the dirty with an older male college instructor, you can bet… Read more »

The older woman thing was a boring and somewhat ridiculous storyline. I thought the young guy Aaron seemed to portray a character that would be kept around. No need to put Ashley on the GH payroll, at least from this viewer’s perspective…

I cannot help but feel that Kristina is trying on lesbianism as one would try on a new Hermes scarf. This storyline certainly doesn’t resonate with reality the way Bianca Kane’s did on All My Children. Also, if Parker were a man they’d be calling him a sexual predator. Anytime a professor makes a move on a student, it’s pushing the boundaries because the professor is in a position of authority. It’s clear Kristina is troubled and that she has issues as she always seems to be in a state of petulant histrionics. For Parker to put the moves on… Read more »

I’m with you on this one, Sandy…The current Kristina with anyone is not my cup of tea, but the age difference between these two characters is far too great and really does not make for a very inspiring coupling by any stretch of the imagination. Why this storyline is even back as a retread is really mystifying when the Aaron aspect to Krissie’s relationship roulette was never played out to a logical conclusion. Moreover, I’m still not accepting this particular actress in the role of Sonny’s daughter…I would like to see the former one back in the role…she was much… Read more »

Lexi Ainsworth assumed the role of Kristina after the character was SORASed in 2009. She played her until her contract was not renewed (under JFP/Wolf). Her youthful appearance may have made it hard to put her in romantic situations (such as her flirtation with Ethan). FV cast Lindsey Morgan as Kristina in 2012. Many viewers made note of the strange chemistry between her and MB, She might have got a bum deal with Carlivati’s “Mob Princess” reality show storyline followed by the Connie/Trey (mother/son) relevation. Shortly after Trey’s death, Kristina unceremoniously slithered off to college. Ainsworth resumed the role in… Read more »

@Steve….For me, it’s never been the “youthful appearance” that doesn’t work…it’s the attitude, the personality…I just cannot get over the obstinate, wicked child vibe that the current actress brings to the role….I felt the same way the first time around with her and the ensuing years did not make a whit of difference in how I perceive her as this character, regardless of storylines, Emmy, whatever…With Lindsey Morgan, the rebellious nature was still there, but it was sexier and more mature in keeping with the supposed age of the character. Although I never paid that much attention to MB, the… Read more »

Shay, I couldn’t agree more. I know there are many Lexifans out there, and I’ll concede she is a decent actress. But that snarky, spoiled brat vibe of hers gets old very quickly and I don’t have the patience for it. And, frankly, Ashley Jones deserves better than a May-December non-romance with this whiner.

Yes, Shay, this Kristina does act as the spoiled, privileged daughter of “il padrino”.
But, there’s always a ‘but’, LOL. I thoroughly enjoyed the pent-up anger she regurgitated upon her mother’s deaf ears, and senseless puppy love.
Alexis should have known Julian’s presence would agitate everyone in question, regardless of the fact he is Sam’s father. Actually, coma or not, she could care less.
I agree with you and Soaphound, yes….but, we needed this scene….and, Kristina’s petulance and angst was soooo germane here.

Fans have waited a whole year for Parker to make her return. So happy Pristina will be back! I love their relationship because it is so complicated. The best ones always are. Clearly, Kristina has feelings for Parker which are still unresolved. I hope GH gives them the air time they so deserve. Both Ashley and Lexi are phenomenally talented and have amazing chemistry together. Hoping Parker is back for good and not just swinging by again.

Kat
Guest

I agree with you. They have fantastic chemistry and bringing more awareness in every day issues that people desk with. They both did an outstanding job portraying their characters. Definitrky waited far too long for GH to wake up and bring this SL upfront and center. Too many unanswered questions and it’s time to resume their attraction & journey together.

I was at Pier One Imports and could have sworn I saw him shoplifting. I thought about following, but they were having a great sale. Is there any chance you are miffed that Alexis is somehow living the life you so fervently are desirous of? Teensie-weensie? I tire of Sonny, but suppose I would let him in to use the phone if his car broke down and he didn’t shoot me. Even slip into Alexis’ shoes. If they weren’t ten sizes too small. But I asked you. If I am Donna Beck, albeit without her amenities package and no upgraded… Read more »

I was never too invested in Parker as a character and her relationship with Kristina was undeveloped, so I’m not too thrilled to see her back. I would much rather Ashley Jones return to B&B as Bridget because I’ve missed her (and the whole Jackie M crew for that matter) since their exits. The upside is that Lexi Ainsworth will hopefully be utilized more because she has been back-burned for far too long. As for GH, it would have been nice to keep Serena Baldwin in town permanently and have her turn out to be lesbian or bi-sexual, and develop… Read more »

I wish she would come back to The Bold and the Beautiful. I think Eric needs his daughter now. I think she’s a wonderful actress, but I wasn’t to thrilled with this story.

It’s about time #GH brought this SL back. I think Kristina and Parker’s chemistry was natural & undeniable. They really brought this to life.

I was never interested in the Parker/Kristina relationship. It seemed forced, thrown in by the writers to see if it would stick, and not too believable to me with a theme I just don’t care for. Plus, I’ve just never liked the Kristina character. She always seems to have little hissy fits about one thing or another compared to sister Molly. Must means Lexi is doing her job well for me to feel this way. But it does seem they could be setting up Kristina to work her way into Sonny/daddy’a buniess.

Rose, what a great idea, can’t believe it hadn’t occurred to me! Kristina would be a perfect replacement for Sonny. Similar smugness, erratic to the max (and she does it without having a bipolar reason). I like It! And by the way, if they’re trying to catch up with the 21st century, we already have a same-sex couple with chemistry that blows the roof off…and we NEVER see them. Let’s fill in that blank before adding more superfluous characters. Bring back Brad and Lucas!

Would not be surprised if Parker shows up just long enough to realize Kristina is bipolar. Because we can never have too many bipolar characters. I’d opt for bedwetting or folie a deux-you know I can not recall schizophrenia on daytime but surely have forgotten but would enjoy seeing that play out.

I’m up for this, because I feel like the Parker/Kristina storyline got dropped far too soon. Though, low-key, I was hoping for Ashley to return as Bridget on The Bold and the Beautiful, because I miss that character and how different she was from the rest of the Forrester/Logan clan.

So excited to read this! Ashley Jones is a very good actress and hot! This storyline had great potential and was abruptly dropped. No one would blink an eye at the 15 year age difference if Parker were a man. Kristina is no longer her student and these two sizzle together. Bring it on!!

I beg to differ, Trish…As you may already know if you are a regular follower of this website, age is always a BIG issue here whenever character relationships are discussed and dissected!

I’m just not interested in this storyline. I think its because the storyline has been dropped many times; and I think the storyline is too mature for the likes of Lexi Ainsworth. I’ve just never been a big fan of hers. Her portrayal of Kristina is much like Bryan Craig’s portrayal of Morgan’s. Kristina is a spoiled, immature brat, IMO. The less air-time, the better. I don’t see what someone like Parker, who appears confident, evolved, and mature would see in Kristina.

Hopefully, they will not make this a once a week episode. When TPTB drag out a storyline too long, people lose interest.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
