Elizabeth Hendrickson Says Goodbye To General Hospital

Photo Credit: JPI

On Thursday’s GH, the character of DA Margaux Dawson announced she is stepping down from her position after siding with the law against the manipulative and blackmailing Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin).  Margaux informed Port Charles Mayor, Laura Spencer Collins (Genie Francis) of her decision.

Around the same time, actress Elizabeth Hendrickson revealed on her Instagram account that she had wrapped her  run on the ABC daytime drama series, with a photo of her in front of the GH studio sign expressing: “It was an incredible year on @generalhospitalabc playing Margaux. Thanks to all my new friends, It was truly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. On to the next!”  Hendrickson began playing Margaux in 2018.

Now it will be interesting to see who becomes the new DA of Port Charles.

As for Hendrickson, rumors have been swirling that she may be returning to Y&R now that Adam (Mark Grossman is back on the canvas, and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and Kevin (Greg Rikaart) are coming back.  Could Chloe be far behind?

So, send your well-wishes to Liz on a job well-done, and let us know where you are hoping she turns up next via the comment section below!

GH saddled Liz with a terrible character and even worse writing. Margaux was not relatable at all, and her storyline left a lot to be desired. They tried pairing her with Drew but that fizzled quickly, especially when she tried to get him to turn against Jason. And the possibility of a Margaux/Sonny pairing was scary, because the last thing viewers needed was Sonny cheating on Carly again, especially after what everyone thought happened with Nelle not too long ago. This character never had a long staying power on the canvas, and frankly I thought she’d be one of Ryan Chamberlain’s victims.

I really hope Liz returns to Y&R, because Chloe will always be her best character and the writing on Y&R has improved lately, so I’m sure they could incorporate her back into the canvas quite well. And with Adam back and Chelsea and Kevin on their way too, it only makes sense to have Chloe return as well.

As for GH’s new DA, I’m really hoping they don’t introduce another brand new character to take on the role, and instead bring back Ric Lansing. Rick Hearst is phenomenal and the character has so many ties to the canvas, and so many storyline possibilities. Just look at what bringing Jax back has done; his current storyline is bringing together so many characters. Side note: can Laura hurry up and name Mac as interim police commissioner already?! It baffles me that Jordan has been in the hospital for weeks and this hasn’t been done yet.

Hearst would be phenomenal!

LOVE your idea on bringing back Ric Lansing. talk about a phenom! BRILLIANT actor. who . perhaps is so good he overshadows “his” brother @Maurice Benard’ Sonny. so this answers the audience question

Carly can forget about Jax as an adversarial w/Sonny. that’s long gone. @GH should make this more personal and familial.. and the heartbreak w/his brother be that much more intense, vulnerable, bring down the little man… stomp him out ?!?! You can clearly tell the writers are doing every thing they can to make Sonny that family man… town leader… the men @GH just TOWER over Sonny. AND, are better actors with intrigue. Sonny simply has to stop those “leers” that laser the other actors face off ? No? he should smile more… it’s still as natural as he can still try. Carly hospital visits alone by herself with no one caring… is doing her darndest to make this emote. NADA.

Sonny AND Carly have run their course… Josslyn without Oscar at this time… she needs to go backburner… I hope the mourning and cutesy cutesy schtick w/dear ole dad is limited. Michael is heading off to Martha vineyard w/ Sasha. do you like 8 seater planes? could this be ??? no? CRASH and BURN. dead Michael sounds like a treat.. we could all happy dance

suck the life out of any show when your sole focus has been front and center for YEARS.. and the 18-49 women demographic is flatline. CLUE?

You both were OLTL fans, yes..
Brody Lovett (is that real name or character?)
he is coming to GH, he’s been signed on, I read in mail..

Hey, Su. Yep! Mark Lawson who played Brody is coming over to GH. Love it! Gorgeous guy; good actor. Not sure who he’ll play yet or how long he’s staying. Personally, I think he’d make an excellent Lucky recast but I haven’t heard that they’re recasting that character.

Ric Lansing could be Ava Jerome NEW LOVE interest !!!!

stick it to and get the DIG IN w/Sonny… if the little man continues to keep Avery from

I’m so glad that Jax is distracted with… Cynthia Watros’ nuNINA and with Valentin as well. flesh Jax OUT and about… and not just supporting Joss, Sonny, and Carly… who are boring

A replacement DA would probably be appointed by the Mayor. Since Laura is the mayor, the obvious choice for a DA would be Scotty Baldwin. He’s had the job before so nobody would challenge his qualifications.

Ric Lansing would be a reasonable choice (he’s also had the gig before) but he can’t seem to stay in town for very long, so I doubt they’re going there.

I’m OK with either one. Just no more new characters and for the love of all that’s unholy, no more Nora Buchanan or any other OLTL characters!

I wish she would stay away, I hate her ass.

Fortunately, far too many people disagree with you.

Good Luck and God Bless You Elizabeth, you did a great job and I hope the future gets you many more good jobs.

Hoping every day in every way, that Chloe shot Adam and we see Kevin first to bring her back with another bang!

I know it’s often said, but they really did waste her at GH. She came on strong and then fizzled to next-to-nothingness. I wish her well in her next endeavor.

I thought Michelle Stafford was a big waste on GH. Whoa, Elizabeth was ten times worse! They had no clue on how to write her character! She and Billy Miller had mega chemistry on Y&R and all but ignored that on GH. Liz will probably go back to Y&R and thats a good thing!

Hello again, Sir Timmmbo!!! The problem with GH is that most of its “soap get vets” are totally wasted in their new Port Charles roles….once they arrive with much ballyhoo on the canvas, nobody seems to know what to do with them, so we have to suffer through many a lackluster character and storyline to justify the high-cost of bringing these “big names” to the show. Very rarely do the results justify the expenditures….all we are left with are more and more people inhabiting space that have nothing to do with the true nature of GH….it’s both frustrating and off-putting for longtime fans of the soap. No wonder we celebrate when these characters are finally sent packing….

It’s time for Chloe to come out of hiding!

Don’t know if she’s really hiding, or if Adam has really had her taken, as Kevin seems to think.All the posting he’s been doing, seems very incriminating.

Love Elizabeth, but not Margaux. From the get-go, I knew she wouldn’t last considering how many new characters GH keeps coming up with. I wish they would use the actors they’ve always had. She’s much better off on Y&R.

Will be waiting for you over in GC. Kevin’s already there kidnapping Phyllis. Esther will be glad to see you, especially since she thinks you are dead. Also, hope to see you bust Adam’s chops some more. You may be small, but you’re mighty!

they wasted her

The DA Margaux was mostly backburned..
She will do much better as Chloe Y&R..
Looking forward to her return at Y&R, that will be much better for Hendrickson ..

Hi sOOO, the little run in with Margaux and Drew, reminded he how good they were together. Too bad it was wasted on GH.

this is another one of those heart wrench disappointment – PERIOD

having nothing to do with Ms. Hendrickson’ talent. NEVER FULLY UTILIZED. THAT is such a disgrace to @Frank, Shelly, AND Chris. SHAME the three of you are racking up

the excitement alone… will she or won’t she – LOVE INTEREST for either Billy Miller and even Jason ???? the weak story she shared with Maurice Benard. GOD what junk.

All I can say is that I’m glad she had that one year of employ… just like Ingo Rademacher had @B&B. TALENT hidden and left by the wayside.

Character had lasting potential but then again the writers never really made her fit in and give her anything really interesting-she should be the one who murders Shilo but i think it will be Willow’s mom who bumps him off!!!

Another character never developed. And the beat goes on. . . and on. . . and on . . . . !

I was not a fan of Chloe’s, at first…. but I did gradually changed my mind, as I did for Margaux. Perhaps, it’s the fact that I love Elizabeth, the actress.
Contrary to what most Y&R fans feel, I want her to return to the show……which puts me in a quandary right now. Who shot Adam? Chloe or Kevin? Who else? I still think Tessa is untrustworthy?!?!
Who took Phyllis? It could not have been Chloe….the perpetrator was taller than Phyllis, with masculine hands. Kevin? But why?
Is it to truncate any alliance budding between her and Adam? Furthermore, if Adam knows his assailant, then why is he not more guarded? —-he seems to move within GC without missing a beat.
Whatever Elizabeth’s next venture is, I wish her the best❤️.

Change–not changed….
PS. If she were to come back to Y&R, how would the writers explain Chloe’s return—-a feasible explanation, I hope.

Hi there. I just wondered if you caught the last scene between Margaux and Drew? I think there could have been a lot of chemistry or romance there, if they had paired them together. I liked them together on Y&R, before she went nuts, after Delia’s death. I agree with your other post about Billy leaving the child in the car. I remember having bad thoughts about that, when it happened.
I also, still do not like Tessa. She’s as dull as dish water, and she holds Mariah back. I usually fast forward through their scenes, and at least they should get Tessa a new guitar. Also, I’m not liking Ana, and really don’t know why.
P.S I am having an awful time getting on to Michael’s blog. Do you know why? When I clicked om it today, I got some really weird. stuff. I only got here, because I answered an old comment that came to my email days ago.

Hi, Violet,
I’m with you. ….do not like either Tessa or Ana. I actually did Like Ana at first, but something happened…..As yourself, I can’t put my finger on it. I assume some characters lack charisma—-that certain “je ne sais quoi” characteristic that pulls the audience in. I am getting that ‘rejection’ feeling for the new Nina…..this woman looks old enough to be Valentin’s mother !!!!! Good grief!!!! Couldn’t the PTB find a closer-to-the-original copy?
Yes, Billy and Elizabeth had that vibe going on in Genoa City—–I think Billy is being wasted as Drew, to be honest with you….Wonder of all wonders if Thompson would simply transform into Billy.
Okay….about your problem getting on the sites. I had a similar experience….I thought it was my new iPad—-but, it was something I did.
Sometimes, when I’m in the midst of typing ( always in a hurry—like right now, getting ready to walk out the door, LOL), I accidentally scroll down and inadvertently type a letter or two within my email address or add a letter to my name. Am I making sense? In other wirds, check your email address.
I wasn’t receiving any feedback…..I had to go directly to the sites to look for any comment anyone had left for me.
Good luck—if all else fails, start from the beginning by giving yourself a new email address and a new moniker. I had to do that, as well…..Someone got into my account(s)—-I actually use my sister-in-law’s email, with the number 4 after the name!! LOL..
Later, my friend. Enjoy your day…❤️

Hi Celia
Your reply is a good case in point. I was just lucky to have seen it today. I was not notified of this reply. While liking your ideas, I am very technically challenged, and trying out any of your ideas might send me into utter chaos, but I’ll try . Just read that Billy Miller may be leaving GH for greener pastures, so who knows, maybe he’ll be grazing in the pastures of Wisconsin. I do like J.T, but would welcome Billy back. What do you think of the new Adam? I mean the character, not the actor.

Of course, we wish her the best in her new(or old) adventure. The actress also did mention that viewers should look for her on ” another network “(hint).

Man, what a pointless character for a wonderful actress.

Isn’t she going back to Y&R so we can relive 2013 and hear about Delia 685 times and Billy never admit his role in leaving a child in a car alone .

Hey, Kay……what an irresponsible thing for a parent to do!! Leave a kid alone in a car!!
I still have a hard time coming to grips with that absurdity –yet, the PTB chose not to make a big deal about it. And, Billy’s life goes on.
I wish Thompson would leave as Tognoni. One out, one to go.
Great thespians in the wrong role.

I cant get over Josh Griffit and why on earth after Mal Young are subjected to him again after his last mediocre run?
Were the fans ever waiting for resolution to Dehlias death?
Josh scrapped Kyle and Summers marriage when it looked like Kyle was really being torn and it made for such a realistic complex triangle inwhich I was enjoying both relationships!..aswell he ditched the Rosales brothers triangle when all it needed was less airtime so viewers werent bombarded with daily screentime.
Chloe and Kevin are a joke and not the drama y n r needs right now. If Chloe does return keep her away from Kevin because the two dont work.

Trying to stay positive but tough you can’t go back to the past you just have to make some adjustments and pray to move forward but we don’t revolving door since 2006 with head writers I do not blame them they just lack talent when Kay and Sally came back for what ten months I had faith yes it was slow for some but it takes time to correct mistakes ! Absolutely no need for Adam to return how many times can you die? I like the new Adam but JG is forgetting the past I realize Prat ruined the character not JH fault but was never a Romeo! The best thing this show has going is Tracy writing her new novel and the black and whites done very clever plus Beth is a favorite of mine ! I use to adore this show I wish them the best you also might want to rethink MO Abby weak at best no chemistry at all with anybody

The new Adam has the anger of CE and MM versions he was never a lover boy and JM just is not up to the challenge he has only had two styles of acting a horney kid or a mad brat he has never grown in twenty plus years and the thought of him and MS crawling all over each other and calling it acting is repulsive

NICE !!!! Marquee – APB – STAT ie: Joshua Morrow ^^^

what you said

No I don’t think anybody was asking for her character back or Kevin put a fork in it

I know, Damien!!——one of the worst couplings on soaps; Kevin and Chloe. As with Franco and Elizabeth ( GH) I like both, but separately.
I will probably get kicked in the proverbial arse for this, but I was really getting into Summer and Kyle. She has come out of her stuck-up-rich-girl universe—-I like her honesty right now.
I still think Kyle is going through a phase—-One that is a novelty to him? Has he ever been involved with anyone other than the Summer-type? Lola is, also, starting to get on my nerves. Miss Little-Goody Two-Shoes….So unnerving. No one is that perfect. Not even me. HaHaHa and LOL.
I get creepy vibes from her. For someone who was soooo virginal, timid, fearful and ignorant of all-things-sexual; she surely jumped into it without much hesitation—too much of a pro!! ….not how it works–ask any girl on her first encounter.
Lola is just too good to be true. The writing belies the actions manifested some of these characters. I am still very confused and on the fense about Rey. What is his purpose? Lola? To introduce an Hispanic family into the mux. That’s fine, but it isn’t wirking. I think the purpose of Eva LaRue coming to Genoa City is to put some life into the storyline—-as it is, it is very dormant and boring. What dies Sharon see in Rey? He’s so stiff, for lack of a better word—-he’s ramrod straight—I guess he only bent the rules for Mia. Hypocrisy abounds. Wake up, writers!!
Later Damien….lunch break is over….thanks for listening to my rant❤️

I think she is a fine actress. The character was not well written. But she did a great job. I wish her well!

Good riddance to Margaux.

The new DA will be Anna..
She has no purpose, as of now.
So- it will be Anna.
I am not liking it, but—–

Well, suOOO, she had better get her butt back soon, because Hayden will be there any day now to take Finn back, I hope!

Anna’s not a lawyer, so she’s not eligible to be a district attorney. She could be the police commissioner again if necessary though.

I think Mac is going to be brought back as the commish. Way too long. He never should have been booted off the show in the first place. I’d love for it to be permanent and Jordan to join Curtis in his PI work

rebecca1…looks like sanity has prevailed and Mac is back where he belongs as the commish, at least temporarily. Hope it ends up full-time. Things got done and solved back when he used to head up the department.

rose…love Mac. I’m hoping both he and Robert stick around; seems like they’re FINALLY bringing back actual GH characters! I’m still hoping Peter turns out to be Robin’s twin!

Rebecca1…Yesterday was happy to hear the WSP fired Robert, even though I think he is really deep undercover. You don’t just fire intelligence people with a good track record. But for now Port Charles can have him back.

Made me kinda sad; sort of signified the end of an era; our characters/actors are getting older and so are we. Gone are the young Scorpio, Anna, Frisco, Sean Donelly, etc..and those adventure-packed GH days.
But, yes, that’s what I’m thinking. I’m HOPING that Tristan Rogers wants to stick around and that they make him DA. I’d love that.

rebecca1…”Oh” I so agree about the end of an era.. and it’s not just with soaps and GH. It’s all things and people. Maybe that’s why many are so tuned into Downton Abbey. It stands still for a long while, but even it’s characters and circumstances are changing, too. I get a lot of this from older customers at the bookstore I work at who find so much disappearing. Sometimes I feel like a hairdresser whose customers tell you all kinds of stuff “in confidence.” And even the younger, college aged staff are concerned where life is going. Like “Do I really want to be a teacher anymore based on all the responsibilities they have beside teaching?” Even the Willow story on GH is touching on this.

Hey, Rose…Is Frisco still running the WSB??? I’m so remiss in my GH viewing these days, I’m not sure, but if he remains in charge, there is NO way he would fire a superspy like his old pal, Robert Scorpio! Me thinks he may be working deep cover as an ex-WSBer….but any excuse to keep him in Port Charles works for me!

I don’t know what Frisco is up to. But I did see he was on a Hallmark production. Better he come back to Port Charles for a while and straighten out Maxie. Saw a show on PBS fundraiser a couple of weeks ago about the upcoming Downton Abbey movie. Just watching familiar characters and scenes just put me in an good mood as I anticipate the movie. I read the first book of Discovery Of Witches to get me through the waiting period until season 2. The book and season 1 are alike with lots more info in the book. I’ve made it my mission to have this book be my staff pick at the bookstore I work part time at. And have sold a few!

I do think they mentioned that Frisco was still heading up the WSB. Didn’t Felicia mention that when Scorpio told them? I don’t know…I feel like someone said that in the dialogue.
You may be right; maybe he wasn’t fired but is really deep undercover and has to let on that he’s been let go. Seemed strange that after he told them he’d been fired he got a phone call from the WSB…so, not sure.

Hello again, Rose! I love your suggestion that Frisco returns to PC to “straighten out Maxie,” as it’s obvious neither Mac nor Felicia are doing that job. Of course, any reason for Jack Wagner reappearing on the GH canvas works for me! As for the Downton Abbey movie preview on PBS? I saw that, too, and my regional stations are still showing the reruns of the original program, so I do tune in whenever I can to get my “Dame Maggie” fix…It’s amazing how even when you already know exactly what Violet is going to say before she says it, the result remains as hilarious as the first time one heard her utter those gems from the fertile imagination of Julian Fellowes!!!! I cannot wait for more…Did you know that the buzz is so good on the upcoming film that there is talk of doing another? Yes! And on another Downtown note, this week, there is a live orchestral concert being held on the grounds of Highclere Castle where the show’s magnificent soundtrack, along with its best highlight reels, will take center stage. Even better, the event is to be hosted and narrated by Jim Carter, aka, “Carson the Butler!” What a joy would it be to attend this one-time soiree??? (I do so hope it will be recorded for later worldwide distribution…) At any rate, I did answer your other reply regarding the DOW, at al…alas, it didn’t post. However, I can certainly appreciate your enthusiasm for this newest TV franchise from a popular book….it has beautifully translated to the small screen! Hold on, season two is just around the corner! I’m also looking forward to getting my latest “period piece” fix from a new ITV series entitled “Beecham House!” It is just beginning and features Lesley Nicol (aka, DA’s “Mrs. Patmore,” who has finally made it upstairs!!!!) as the matriarch of a wealthy English family settling in 18th century India right before the British Raj….it certainly looks promising enough to carry me through to September for the DA movie premiere! Later, Rose!

Shay…look forward to seeing “Beecham House.” Thanks for letting me know.

@Rose…You’re welcome. If you do a search, you should be able to locate episodes 1 and 2 on Dailymotion. I have already watched both, although I must confess that Beecham House will never match Downton Abbey in terms of charm, heart and charisma, Still, it is nicely done, as are all British period dramas, which really go all out on gorgeous costumes and scenery. Be forewarned that BH does get off to a bit of a slow start, and it’s admittedly quite difficult to get used to “Mrs. Patmore” as a lady of means…but she’ll get there in the end. Oh, and there is another “Downtown” connection I forgot to mention: Bessie Carter, daughter of Jim Carter and Imelda Staunton is part of the “Beecham” cast. She is a real chip off the old Carson! Same tall stature and unique features….you’ll know her when you see her! Lastly, I do believe you will like the lead male character…he is strikingly similar in looks to Tom Ellis! (Aka, “Lucifer”) Hope you find the episodes, Rose!….Enjoy!

Shay…Thanks for the followup. I may have to change my access to these kind of shows. I am still on a regular network type packages, and have resisted the Hulu, HBO, Netflix, etc. etc, etc. that are out there now. I know I’m missing some good programming, but I just want to keep my life simple and have been stubborn to change.

Not at all, Rose!!!!! I’m much the same…I’ve never been one for subscriptions either, and I’ve rarely even had any TV packages, as I don’t watch enough programming to bother with them. (I have used Amazon Prime, but that’s it…) Most of my foreign vehicle viewing is simply down to finding the right websites online….I’m loathe to mention others beyond DM because I don’t know that is permitted here, but just searching for any given show you desire will almost always yield some sort of viable video link. Once you find those few reliable go-to-sites, you will see that they often have what you want to see time and time again. Having said that, I also just finished up another great period piece, “The Spanish Princess,” which told the early story of how Catherine of Aragon became Henry VIII’s first wife. Again, it was beautifully done…sumptuous Tudor era costumes and breathtaking locations. i cannot wait for the second season! Oh, and this series also had connections to “Downton Abbey!” It featured Dame Harriet Walter (Lady Shackleton) as the Queen Mother from H#!! and Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith Crawley) as an equally strident Maggie Pole….I think you would also very much enjoy this historical biopic, Rose! Good luck in your search….

Shay..A bit of a soap break… I am a casual tennis watcher. Love Federer since he came on the scene, so am watching the Wimbledon finals. But leave it to the Brits. They don’t just call it a tennis match. It’s The GENTLEMAN’S Championship Finals. With some royalty and others in shirts and jackets. Almost a formal event compared to their sports.

Oh, yes, Rose! Wimbledon is a fond reminder of a long lost world, where and when every event warranted “dressing to the nines!” It’s so nice to see men wearing suits and ties and females actually attired in ladylike finery! (Save for a few embarrassing Americans who apparently thought they were too special to follow the time-honored dress code…) Anyway, I was rooting for Roger, too, so I was sad to see him lose, but I conversely loved the outcome of the ladies’ final! By the way, did you know our beloved Dame Maggie was seated in the Royal Box a few days prior to the grand finale??? How I would have loved to hear “her” take on all things currently happening in Old Blighty! (Given some of her hilarious real life comments, me thinks she is not that departed from her Dowager Countess Violet! What a wit!) At any rate, I see that you are still enthusiastically awaiting the return of the “Witches!” From what I’ve read, new episodes should be hitting the UK by the end of the year…and there is going to be a time-traveling element in Season 2…sounds fine by me! As soon as they begin, I’ll give you a heads-up so you can search them out online! Until then there is the countdown to the “Downtown” film….less than two months to go…Can’t wait! Later…..Stay cool!

Well here you are. I’ve been looking for you. Why haven’t you come to PC to take out Shiloh?

You think I want him down here in Hell??

Pretty bad, when the devil doesn’t want someone!

Hey, SusieQ,
Anna is not an attorney….one must have gone through the rigors of Law School for that—how can she possibly prosecute without that extensive knowledge and experience? Then again, you may be right….anything, where soaps are concerned, goes, albeit I do agree with you about her.
I am done with Anna. As you say, she has no purpose—-one of the worst couplings is Anna and Finn–neither has a purpose.
I used to be such a fan of both, but these two offer absolutely nothing, except nonsense.

Even though I was initially all for it, I can certainly relate to your disappointment in the Anna-Finn pairing, CeeCeeGirl! To think that that ultracool superspy, “The Divine Devane,” has fallen hard for a meek dude with a service lizard does rather beggar belief! And that is a shame because I really like both Hughes and Easton, too! Instead of Anna bringing Finn up to her previously fierce, daring level, she seems to have become much more gooey and immature around him, which is not what one would have ever expected of her. I do hope that if this couple has a future, they become more engaging and less silly, which would befit both the long-established character of Anna and the two excellent actors who are playing out this strangely unappealing romance.

I suspect it would have been an even better experience if she had been involved in a storyline.

Good. Take that ugly red blazer they always put you in

On the contrary, DMRR…..It will be recycled for the next unlucky character who has the misfortune to be stuck wearing it non-stop. Just like Alexis and her few well-worn suit jackets….you really would think that a highly-paid lawyer could spring for a few amazing designer statement pieces that would stand the test of time, but not in Port Charles!

Best of luck to her…This character just never caught on..It was just dull from the very beginning..All of the new characters that the show has added the last couple of years have just been so WRONG, except for Oscar and he gets killed off and Hayden, and she gets written off SMH..Glad to see Jax back..Also looking forward to the return of Hayden to the show..Anna and Finn just do not do it for me!! Make Anna a bad ass again and reunite her with Scorpio with an spy adventure storyline.

Michael Easton is so out of his league w/Robert AND Anna

so he’s providing another miracle… this time w/Jordan

AND this amounts to ??? how much more exciting can Finn bear ? watching him w/Anna is a tragic spiral that’s going to continue… for all time.. till they split up. no matter how you spin

it’s just never going to fly

RUN – do not walk – do not hesitate

we don’t need you here

I don’t think Michael Easton is out of his league. He’s as much of a soap vet as Finola Huges and Tristan Rogers; always loved Michael. With that said, I’m not a huge fan of Finn and Anna. Like Finn much better with Alexis…but now I’m LOVING the new shrink, Neil, and really hope they go for a pairing with him and Alexis.
Hayden? Can’t stand her; couldn’t stand her then and hate that she’s coming back. I’d like her to drop off Finn’s child and exit left.

Next stop – Y&R!

I dont care, not connected enough to gh core, and acting was so so, compared to stars like maura west, lauraWright, finola Hughes, Nancy Lee grann, genie francis,and soon cynthia watros. Gh has been more focused on it entire history and the hospital, trying to reshape the quatetmaines, and having spencercassadines with w s b in the mix, the mob stuff is kinda just sonny’s occupation now and should be now the haters who said there was to much mob stuff should be happy, but they are the same group that need fireworks an fluff to be entertained. Gh is GH again if your not happy go drink the koolaid over at days where Ron c is I’ll enjoy my tea.

Maybe she’ll be involved in Ava’s Crimson cover; an advisor??? I’m REALLY hoping Jax, Nina and Maxi’s plan to sabotage Ava backfires and she becomes the new media darling. Oh how I’d love that. Ava needs something good to happen and Carly would be outraged…livid…sneering her way into a miscarriage! Please; that baby cannot happen.

So nice that you think a known murderer should be the toast of the town, while Carly, although being the meddlesome pain in the butt that she is, should lose her baby. Also being pregnant in real life, is like sending bad wishes. Can you please tell me why you think Ava ” needs something good to happen”? The old question of, why do bad things happen to good people, does not apply to Ava. Although she has a strong following, and I attribute this to the actress, I think that everything bad that’s happened to her, has been of her own doing, except for Nina forcing the birth of Avery and kidnapping her. I think we disagree on more things than one, huh?

It’s a show Violet.

..and, am I to understand you’re pregnant? I thought you said you were in your 70s? Or am I remembering that incorrectly…if not, not sure what you’re referring to with your statement, “also being pregnant in real life is like sending bad wishes…”

I hate Carly. Couldn’t hate a character more than her. Carly’s way more than a “meddlesome pain in the butt. She’s a witch, a bitch, vindictive, self-righteous, a cheater, took Michael from AJ, still lying that he pushed her down the stairs years ago when she was pregnant, covered up his murder, years before, she drugged him and poured alcohol all over him so he and the town would think he’d gone back to drinking; she and Sonny threatened to kill him if he ever even spoke to his son…so, “meddlesome” is her “good” side compared to all the horrific things she’s done/is. And she needs to back off Ava’s baby. And, Carly attempted murder twice: Franco, after he saved her from Heather and almost died for her and Tony Jones, who she drove crazy after stealing him from her mother. So I’ll say it again; hate Carly. I would have been happy if Ryan killed her off; just can’t bear to watch her scenes or hear that “giggle.” Therefore, I have no desire to see the Corinthos clan expand. We already see too much of them; Michael should have stayed a Quartermaine, Avery should be with her mother, and the soon-to-be adored Jonah will be in Sonny and Carly’s orbit. (That’d be AJ’s grandson rightfully). So, no. they don’t need another baby.

Ava? Love Ava. She is no worse than Sonny and Carly. Actually, I find her a much better “person” than Carly. Ava has a conscience; she’s reflected on her life, she has regrets and she keeps trying to evolve. The “she killed Connie” is laughable. She killed her because Connie found out who “Derek Wells” and his sister really were” Julian and Ava. It was “business.” Sonny would have done the same and has killed way more…including AJ.

What has Ava done lately that’s been so “evil?” Who has she killed other than Connie? All she’s been doing for years is trying to get back Avery while looking for love.

Carly and Sonny need to be less seen and less heard. Or, at least take a nice, long trip to “the island.” Preferably enjoy it so much that all we get is postcards for a few months.

Wow, Rebecca. Ava killed Connie in cold blood and got away with it. And while I am no fan of Morgan’s, what she did with his bipolar medication was beyond the pale and it was really hard to watch. Yes, her sadistic actions did lead to Morgan’s death. Moreover she was a horrible mother to Kiki and competed with her every step of the way. I like Maura West a great deal but Ava is just a horrible person. I am no fan of Sonny’s or Carly’s either but for you to use their history to negate Ava’s crimes just seems illogical.

Well, hello, Harry. Long time…
As said, could care less that Ava killed Connie. Why? Because Connie was no innocent. If she was okay marrying Sonny, who’s killed many a human being “in cold blood” than apparently her value of others lives wasn’t that exemplary. She was engaged to a mob boss! A man who kills for power! A man who shot Dante, (albeit he didn’t know that he was his son at the time) in cold blood..same as Ava. For the same reasons. Dante had dirt on him since he was working undercover and Sonny wasn’t going to let him get out alive. So Ava killed Connie because she was going to expose “Derek Wells” aka Julian and herself to Sonny..which would have been dangerous for her and Julian. So, in light of the “business’ they’re in…Connie was a piece in the war. If she didn’t want to be in it she should have not been okay with what he did or become engaged to him.

No. Ava was not “sadistic” when she switched Morgan’s meds. She didn’t do it out of malice, nor jealousy. She did it because at the time, Morgan had been erratic. Yes, when on his meds he was improving, but in the meantime Kiki was a wreck. She was monitoring Morgan’s meds, making sure he took them, checking to see if he was okay, worried that she said or did something that would hurt him…and was basically a mess. (you can watch those scenes if they’re available online if you have any interest to do so and don’t remember.) I still recall a scene where Ava was sitting with Kiki in a restaurant or something and told Kiki that she was worried about her; that this should be the time in her life she should be enjoying herself..and that she needed to focus on her studies for her future. She felt that all her worrying over Morgan was interfering with that and tried to persuade her to get out of the relationship and date Dillon, who she thought would be better for her. (Ava had zero interest in Morgan at this point so this wasn’t some “plot” to get him for herself, etc). So, though what she did was terrible (but, again, no more terrible than screaming mimi Carly who drugged and doused a recovering alcoholic, AJ) and not thought out… she truly believed there’d be no lasting harm. She literally thought she could prove to Kiki how up/down life would be with Morgan, Kiki would realize it and date Dillon (which she eventually did) and that Carly/Sonny would see Morgan’s mood and get him back on track. She was devastated when she found out what happened to Morgan…about the accident. That’s when she went into her “I’m ugly on the outside as well as the INSIDE” self-reflection. Ava is a multi-faceted character who is essentially vulnerable and looking for love…with an insecurity and desire to lash out when hurt. But we’ve seen no violent acts from her after that first year. And I DO think she was a good mother (other than her “Denise” period). If you’re interested in why I think that it’s below in my reply to Violet.
So, again, what Ava did with Morgan’s meds wasn’t good (far, far from it)…but it wasn’t done with a “sadistic” intent. Her goal was to protect Kiki from a life with him.
To compare her to Carly is like comparing arsenic to ice cream. Arsenic being Carly.

One more thing, Harry. I honestly think you don’t quite get Ava. She’s not a “horrible” person. Even Maura West has laughed and seems perplexed when some viewers think she’s “evil” and didn’t love her daughter. And some fans blamed her for Kiki’s death and said she wanted it. Maura’s reaction? “Preposterous!”

Ava is not “horrible.” Most of our characters are flawed; Sonny slept with Ava who Morgan, his son, was in love with. Carly stole Tony from her mother. Sam slept with Rick while he was married to Alexis AND while she had lung cancer! Liz slept with Lucky’s brother; Nicolas slept with Liz, the love of Lucky’s life. My point is, and this is very interesting…because I’m going to deviate for a second. Over at B&B, not sure if you watch that show…one of the most popular characters is Bill, aka Dollar Bill. He slept with his daughter-in-law. Literally while she was married to his son…and then pursued her and talked her into not going back to his son…very long story..not going to rehash the soap but there is no “hate” or the “vitriol” that some viewers feel for Ava because she slept with Morgan. And the irony is when Ava first fell for Morgan it was after Kiki told him she wanted the marriage annulled…and basically…Morgan was second choice for Kiki because after meeting Michael it’s him who she really wanted and him who she went back to.
The ONLY time I faulted Ava was when she came back as Denise, and even then it was a gray line for me. She literally only came back to check on Kiki and Avery to see if they were okay but had to be disguised because she was thought dead and I don’t remember if it was Sonny or someone else who wanted her dead..there was some reason she couldn’t let anyone know she was alive. But, she did love her daughters and that was the only reasons she came back. With no intention to stay.
When she saw Morgan I guess her love came back and she reacted; he was no angel either because he fell right back into his attraction for her; They slept with each other. But no one seemed to blame Morgan; just Ava. It’s not like she was set on stealing her daughters’ boyfriend..this was a man (even though younger than Ava) that both Kiki and Ava had loved. So, to say it was “complicated” is putting it mildly. I think she felt like she needed to be with him one more time and then she’d be on her way…
Kiki? I honestly couldn’t stand her. She sided with Sonny and Carly over her own mother, she and Morgan drugged Michael to get Avery from him, she sided with Carly and Sonny to keep Ava from her own daughter. The fact that she could be friends with a couple who want her mother dead was enough for me. And then? She steals Griffin? AFTER she and Ava were in a good place? Yeah; I know. Ava broke up with him…three minutes before it took Kiki and Griffin to jump into bed with each other. And why did Ava break up with him? Because she’d caught the two embracing every time Kiki was upset; the last straw was Kiki wearing only her bra crying into Griffin’s arm. Sorry, but a hot 20-something crying into a hot 30-something’s arms when he could have offered her his jacket or gotten something from the costume rack was a tad inappropriate. And the fact that they had sex less than an hour later only reinforced Ava’s suspicions that there was a mutual attraction there.
As for Ava being a good mother to Kiki? When we first met them in their scenes in NY, they seemed quite close. Living in luxury…and I remember when Kiki implied somemthing about some gamblers Ava stressed that in no way was anyone to come to their house. Kiki was never in danger all her years with Ava; Never once exposed to violence. Ava pulled stunts, yes. But there was never a doubt that she loved Kiki, and in the end if you remember the scenes after Kiki died Ava was reading all the cards Kiki had made for her as a child…cards of a little girls’ love for her mom.
So…I’d say a woman who kept her child safe and raised her as a single parent was a better parent than Carly who raised her kids with Sonny and put her love for him over their safety time and time again.
It was Michael who got shot in the head, almost died, was sent to jail and raped because of Carly’s decision to be with Sonny. Kiki? Not a broken fingernail under Ava’s care…

Reality of AJ’s death is that Ava was far more responsible for it than Sonny was. Sure, Sonny happened to be holding the gun when it went off. But it was Ava’s gun, and she had already pulled the trigger, but the gun jammed up on her. You would think a Jerome could afford a better gun than a $1.98 Wal Mart special, for Hell’s sake!

Sonny picked up the gun and it went off. He probably didn’t even have to do much with it. The round was in the chamber. Laws of physics say it had to go somewhere.

Of course, given the history between AJ & Sonny, nobody’s going to look innocent in that scene. Especially since Sonny walked in on this ugly scenario where Ava’s guilt in killing ConKate was made obvious and AJ, in understandable anger, was attempting to strangle this murderer who had just tried to shoot him.

Then there’s the final reality here that AJ didn’t even actually die from the gunshot, but appeared to be recovering from his wounds in the hospital, and then suddenly crashed. Probably from the old “somebody shot something into the IV” trick. Naturally nobody bothered to investigate, because the whole storyline was really all about ReRon’s animosity for Sean Kanan. But I’ve talked to AJ here in Hell, and he seems to be convinced that it was Ava who finished him off in the hospital.

Actually, Sonny shot him. Point blank. As I recall AJ turned around, hands up in the air and begged Sonny to believe him…to no avail. It is because of that, and the guilt Sonny felt for breaking his promise to Michael to not kill AJ (who told him that AJ was set up) that after AJ’s death Sonny began to see AJ’s ghost.

Yes; at that time Ava was not a fav of mine because I was a big AJ fan and hated that she set him up. But the bottom line is Sonny hated AJ for years, threatened him for years, hated that Michael came to see AJ as his dad, took the Quartermaine name and this gave Sonny the perfect excuse to finally do what he’d always wanted to do.

As for AJ dying, as I recall when he got to the hospital and lay dying he told Carly that Sonny shot him…asked her to stay with him and then he died seconds later.

Oh, for the record. I don’t think that hoping a FICTIONAL, as in MAKE BELIEVE “person”…a character on a TV show, loses her FICTIONAL, as in MAKE BELIEVE baby is like sending “bad wishes.” LOL.

I wasn’t even going to bother getting into this with you, as we are so opposite in our ideas. First of all unless you are on another planet, you know darn well I was referring to Laura Wright who is pregnant in real life. I just felt that wishing someone to lose their baby, while on screen when the actress is really pregnant was in poor taste. You were right about one thing though. You thought it was laughable because I noted that Ava killed Connie in cold blood, and you replied that she only did it because Connie found out who she and her brother were, like that was an ok excuse? Then you go on to compare she and Sonny. Here is where I say , there is no comparison. He at least loves his family, and tries to protect them, and certainly not so jealous of his sons that he sleeps with their girlfriends.

Violet Lemm…I haven’t been on this site for about a year…maybe three visits including these last few days. Last I was..we were friendly on here so I don’t know where all this hostility is coming from and frankly, at this point with your nasty replies; I could care less.
I didn’t know who you meant was pregnant because LAURA WRIGHT IN NOT PREGNANT! No one would know what you were talking about; it wasn’t even a thought in my mind because I repeat, Laura Wright is not pregnant in real life. I was talking only about “Carly” a fictional character.

As for our other fictional characters, you don’t understand Ava if you think she didn’t love Kiki or doesn’t love Avery. To refresh your memory, Ava had leukemia (or some fatal blood disease) and was about to die. No cure. No hope. Silas gave her one; stem cells/bone marrow from Avery. GUARANTEED to NOT HURT AVERY! Ava REFUSED because even with that guarantee..she was still worried that there was a slight chance Avery could get hurt so instead, she told Silas to let her die. Ava slipped into unconsciousness and Silas went behind her back to take what he needed from Avery and saved Ava. That’s a mom. She was willing to die rather than risk her daughter’s life.
As for Kiki? She loved her. Ava was a single mom who never brought violence into their lives. Carly? She married Sonny over and over again even after Michael was shot in the head and in a coma because of Sonny’s business. She went back to him again after Michael was jailed and raped; back to him again after Joss said she didn’t want to live with Sonny after he had Jax deported. Loves her kids? Yeah; but puts their welfare behind her love for Sonny.
Sonny? He slept with Ava when she was with Morgan; knowing that Morgan loved Ava. Thus…Avery! So I guess a father sleeping with the woman his son loves is okay. Or is it just Ava who was at fault here. Cracks me up how people seem to forget that ol cliche, “takes two to tango”…among other things.

rebecca 1
I feel like I am beating a dead horse here but, oh what the hell! First an apology. Myself and many others wrongly assumed that L.W was indeed pregnant.
Secondly, I apologize for being “hostile and nasty” for calling out a killer, who is also a bitch. My final apology is for ever trying to communicate with you.

I tried several times to respond to your over-the-top hostile comments to me over nothing…from my liking beards on men to liking Ava to not wanting Carly to have a baby. Why you went off the deep end is beyond me; but check your lunacy at the door. Thanks!

On Friday’s, May 17th episode of General Hospital, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding reception was the focal point as the touching celebration for the newlyweds got underway.

Sonny (Maurice Benard) was seething over seeing Dex mingle with the guests. With Dex becoming a cop, and ratting him out to Anna, previously Sonny feels betrayed by his former hit man. However, Sonny’s growing paranoia and mental stability is in question, in particular, because he has been off the proper dosage of meds for months now.

Later, when Sonny sees Dex talking with Gio (Giovanni Mazza) about serving in the military, and later chumming it up with Cerullos, he is about to go postal.

Outside the ballroom. Sonny confronts Dex about chatting it up with the Cerullos, who he says are his people. He warns Dex to stay away from his family. Dex says he was invited to the reception.

Next, Sonny calls Dex a snitch, a spy, and lets him know he is “lucky to be breathing.”  Sonny issues Dex a warning to stay away from his family, or he may not be breathing much longer.

As Sonny turns to walk away., Dex grabs him by the arm to try to reason with him and to and say he’s not his enemy. However, Sonny throws a punch. In the pickup, Sonny continues to bloody and beatdown Dex, until Jason (Steve Burton) arrives on the scene and restrains Sonny.

Kristina (Kate Mansi) walks in on the moment. She sees her father is yelling that both Jason and Dex are traitors. Sonny screams that they are both dead and he’s going to put a gun to their heads.

In happy news, Brook Lynn and Chase finally begin their wedding night when they jump onto of their bed in their honeymoon suite. Chase says now they have a great wedding night, which will be followed by a great honeymoon, and that will be followed by their entire life together. They share a kiss.

So, what did you think of Sonny’s explosive words and actions against Dex and Sonny? Will Kristina figure out what is going on with her dad, once and for all? Comment below.
