Coby Ryan McLaughlin Is GH’s Hank aka Shiloh; What Do You Think Shiloh Is Ultimately Up To?

Courtesy/ABC

Viewers of General Hospital over the past week have seen the debut of the character of Hank. First, on the December 27th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, but it turns out there is more to this story.

When Hank arrived in Port Charles he mistook Jason (Steve Burton) for Drew (Billy Miller), claiming he knew Drew from his time in Afghanistan.  Jason thinks something is fishy with this guy.  Jason told his brother about Hank, and gave him his contact info, but warned Drew to be careful.  Drew has no memory of the guy.

Later, when Drew ran into Hank, the guy filled Drew in on the supposed back-story.  According to Hank, Drew had saved his life after an explosion in the war, and wanted to locate him to say, “thank you.”

Then, on today’s Thursday, January 3rd episode, things get a bit more intriguing.  As it turns out, the house (or is a cult?) that Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) is living at is run by the Dawn of Day’s group leader, Shiloh.  When Jason and Sam (Kelly Monaco) take Kristina up on her offer to check out the place, they do.  Once there, they meet Shiloh, who is actually Hank.

Sam and Jason are perturbed and not-trusting of this guy’s intentions.  Shiloh tells them and Kristina, that he changed his name to evolve and make changes in his life.  Shiloh explains to Sam that he is a life coach.  She questions how people can afford to live there in the house.  He responds by saying people pay what they can.

Coby Ryan McLaughlin is the actor who is playing this new villain in town.  Y&R fans may recognize him from portraying the DNA “expert” who helped Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) dupe her brother, Jack (Peter Bergman).

As for McLaughlin, he has also appeared on numerous primetime series including: Parenthood, Castle, NCIS, and Graceland.

So, what do you think Shiloh’s end game is?  What does he want?  Could he be working for someone?  What are your impressions of Coby Ryan McLaughlin thus far? Comment below.

STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT! The show is bloated with actors as it is. When one leaves, or dies, another takes their place. Please put a moritorium on adding ANY new characters. I’m tired of so many stories bouncing around the screen with most of them never going anywhere. It’s unsatisfying and unnecessary, and most of the new characters are boring, as are the storylines (Willow, Daisy, now Hank) ‘nuf said. General Hospital has unfortunately been so dumbed down over the years, that it’s barely a shadow of its former self. I always try to find something redeeming about… Read more »

Why am I thinking Helena Cassadine is going to be involved in this somehow?

Celia
Guest

Hmmmmm–sounds good to me, James. And, this also, directly connects Drew, Sam and Jason.
Perhaps, the obscurity about Hank/Shiloh will compel Drew to use the disk-drive Margaux gave him?

Shelly AND Chris : could you just let a story play out some… before you insert your dullards ? case in point… about Jason running to Sam, and sharing with her something fishy and not right ? blech ! already the story has dropped to little or no interest.. as this sleuthing twosome.. with help from Spinelli and then Sonny interject… and it’s the dullard all over again.. is this an attempt by the writers to include Billy Miller.. to give him story ? to embarrass us all .. because we knew their was some religious “right” and CULT on… Read more »

1st, Shiloh is Not a villain. There are few true villains. A bad person is not necessarily of villain level. S0 far he might be bad and conniving but not worthy of the villain badge. I like him.. He is handsome and that gives him points lol. He has a cult but it doesn’t seem its a killer cult but a self-help thing that is totally stupid but not lethal. I like new characters so I’m cheering him on.. And Ray pppffftt for being a serial killer it’s a Fail.. not drama, suspense no nothing BORING DULL. he’s on the… Read more »

He’s Ray eehhh Rey.. lol

Harry
Guest

Suoo, are you willfully gas lighting me? Or does it just come to you naturally? I think you mean Ryan. Rey is the police officer from Y&R, and last time I checked, Rey was not a serial killer. As far as Ryan is concerned–the Ryan storyline is horrific, grisly, macabre, sinister. These aforementioned adjectives are all things you normally cherish. How is this achieved? I’ll tell ya. It is achieved because Jon Lindstrom manages to pull this off with a nuanced understatement but you can see the full frontal rage, the psychotic urge being resisted as Ryan pretends to be… Read more »

Wow, good comparison , Billy Clide Tuggle I forgot that name till you brought it up! I’m not as you about expression my thoughts on paper but hit it right on about Jon Lindstrom. He’s a superb actor and I have said several times that he’s much better st playing the killer than the psychiatrist! I almost forget that he’s acting when I watch him, he’s so intense!

There were many Actual chill binding shocking villain back when. Now there are no villains just bad guys and powderpuff serial killers.

The guy is both a cult leader and a mercenary. Don’t see how he could have any redeeming qualities with that mixture. After observing humanity for several millenia, it’s easy to recognize certain patterns in you mortals. Shiloh/Hank is checking a lot of those boxes, and he ain’t even been around a week yet. Hell, if we didn’t already know Ryan was the serial killer, this guy would be at the top of my suspect list for that too. And he’s obviously going to be behind whatever plot against Sam is in the works (regarding her ancient history with that… Read more »

GH needs to bring Kris Kardashian and Kim Kardashian and sign them to contracts, they will be related to Sonny. The ratings would spike up and also bring back John Stamos as Blackie.

I agree with Liza, The Kardashians are well loved. They are good people, who give back to the community. They give money to the homeless and other charities. I want to see Kris and Khloe and Kim sign contracts with GH. Sonny will have his hands full with his love children lol

He was so intense with Drew at GH that I thought he was gonna kiss him and say they had been lovers. Whatever’s going on with him, I find that there are a bunch of holes in this story already. Shiloh/Hank didn’t just arrive in PC when he ran into Jason, he had to have been there for months. Daisy was introduced months ago and was already living “at the house” when she met Christina. So what was Hank up to all this time? I’m not sure where they’re going with this story or if I want to care. The… Read more »

Shiloh is up to no good. He did his homework……he is informed on every aspect PC-residents’ life; past and present. No way did he know Drew…..a fabrication. He will use said info to his own benifit. He is the one behind Sam’s phone “teaser”. The question is. What the Hank for? Kristina–when will she be allowed to grow up? She acts like a fouteen-year-old….why is this girl/woman not given any ambition? A goal in which to strive? Aspire? Instead she’s thrown hither and yon without purpose. Now, it seems, that all overgrown ‘teens’ gather in “Shiloh’s House of ill reFUTE”.… Read more »

Good to see you post, too, my dear friend. Thank you—means everything coming from you.

Hey, Celia. I agree Shiloh is up to no good (but, he’s FINE lookin’! 😉 I don’t think Kiki and Willow are twins. I think Kiki (who I couldn’t stand) was definitely Ava’s but I do think Willow is Nina’s (who I usually like but she’s getting on my nerves with her Charlotte cheerleading and her trying to tell Lulu how to raise HER daughter.) As for Kristina, I think it’s interesting that they have her searching for herself. Many people in real life do…and don’t find themselves for years. Sometimes never. Makes her realistic, and sets up her as… Read more »

Hi, Rebecca, Yeah…I guess it does take a lifetime for some of us to find ourselves…..I am soooo on the fence about Kristina….should I pity her? ….or bolster her defiance? I was never one to rebel against my mother….. Subconsciously, she does seem to blame her mother for whatever goes wrong in her life. There’s such a fine line between wallowing in misery by whining and acting like an adult, regardless of one’s parenting. I supposed it boils down to my “disenchantment” of her. I am not into Kristina. What will happen? Hmmm….maybe she’ll sleep with Shiloh and decide she’s… Read more »

@CeeCee…..You are so right regarding the perpetually-childish Krissy blaming her mother for all her woes in the world,,but then again, I have to say she is probably pretty spot-on in that assertion! The wanton, weak-willed Alexis was certainly not an appropriate role model for any of her daughters…she bore three different offspring—two illegitimately—each with a separate father, none of whom could be termed as a good, decent or honorable man! To have been exposed to the constant chaos and moral morass which are the cornerstones in the life story of Alexis Davis is hardly a healthy environment for any child… Read more »

Let’s cut to the Chase. Just had to mention the self-defense class today. My goodness, Nina is more awkward in her sweats than regular attire. Throwing those legs and arms around, looking so uncomfortable. I kept waiting for that half heart necklace to pop out of Willow’s shirt. We know its coming soon , these two women that can’t stand each other, winding up mother and daughter. I think Willow will be able to hold her own with Nina, and not let herself be overpowered. If we didn’t know better, we could see where Charlotte gets her bullying from.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

Cute word play there, Violet 🙂 And I agree with your post. If we didn’t know Charlotte was Lulu’s her behavior would indicate a Nina mini-me. LOL; I’ve always liked Nina but her Charlotte obsession and overbearing mama bear (which would be great under the right circumstances) is annoying.

Chase? I’d chase him anywhere; he could chase me anywhere. Too much? LOL; he’s just so gorgeous! (And just got engaged to an equally stunning actress.)

Violet Lemm

First of all, I’ve missed your posts, or have I just MISSED them? Honey, if I were about sixty years younger, I’d chase him, until he caught me! He’s a cutie alright, and dimples you could drown in.

LOL; Hi, Violet; no you haven’t missed my posts. I haven’t been around “these here parts” for a while. Thought I’d pop in and see if some of my ol’ buds were still here, you included. 😉

Sigh. I’m afraid neither one of us would have a chance even if we were 20; his fiance is gorgeous! Striking couple.

But, hey! Soaps are all about the make believe/fantasy, right? 😉

Nina was jumping up and down like a 13 year old! How embarrassing!

Shay
Guest

For some reason, GH thinks it’s cute to have “women of a certain age” act like silly, giddy teenagers, whether it be Nina’s strangely adolescent behavior, especially with men, or Alexis with her repeatedly gross tendency to play the schoolgirl in uncontrollable heat like it’s the first time she’s ever experienced such overwhelming physical urges. Not only are such displays humiliating and repulsive, but they are an absolute insult to mature, sophisticaled females who left that childish conduct behind when they graduated from junior high!!!

as I said… watching Sam and Jason “storm” in to “camp enlightenME first” I believe 1/2 the audience PLUS is already caught UP in – that – doozy Hank. Kristina : “Do you have to be such a bitch” Sam is *the little miss know it all” as she searches Jason “face” or EYES for sex or guidance even Jason has dulled that much more… as his paranoia for the safety of Kristina and his “relationship” with Drew ALL in question… Jason HeMan is on it then you have Hank reassuring Kristina that she will find herself.

I think Shiloh is a smoke screen used by DA Margeaux to keep Jason busy so he doesn’t see what’s going on with Sonny.And please Ryan/Kevin make Christina your next victim she is the dumbest 25 year old I’ve ever seen on the soap planet. Why do they always have to make her a easily lead AIR HEAD.
