GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Julexis Christmas!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Friday’s Christmas episode of General Hospital, it was the duo, Julexis, who have had a year of debauchery between them somehow manage to come together in a kiss on Christmas Eve (even though Alexis  (Nancy Lee Grahn) was becoming quite schnokered in the process).

How did that moment come about?  While camped out at Alexis’ house, Julian (William deVry) is questioned by her about the sketchy phone call he just received. Instead of answering her, he sidesteps the question.  And that sends Alexis, who was prepping an icebag for Julian’s wounds, to use the ice to pour herself a stiff drink as her only way to deal with the situatiom, especially after Julian tells her there are some things she doesn’t know. As they become the “bickerstens”, Alexis is panicked by a knock at the door.  She knows her kids would let her have it if they knew she was hiding Julian!

But lo and behold it turns out to be a delivery man with a Christmas tree in tow.   An emotional Julian asks Alexis to decorate ithe tree with him and try and make a real Christmas out of this, and to somehow put aside all the stabbings, killings, attempted murders, and hit and runs between them!

As Alexis hears this and continues to drink, she flashes on a happier time when Julexis had their nuptials.  She recalls how happy she was then and how she believed he was a changed man.   Julian with tears in his eyes assures Alecxis that he deep down, loves her and always will.  Alexis says “Cheers!” to that and boozes it up, yet again.

Julian, who didn’t miss a beat here, offers her an Xmas gift. When Alexis opens the present, an ornament with their wedding photo emblazed on it is the gift.  A sorrowful Julian apologizes again for hurting Alexis so much.

He tells her, “You are my breath, you are my heartbeat. Alexis, you are my life.” Finally their eyes lock on each other.  Alexis, albeit drunk, says she sees Julian she fell in love with through him and whispers, “There you are.  I see you.  I see you.”  Cue the kiss!

First, let’s say that we could not have loved William deVry’s performance in this episode more.  Emotional, tender, strong, contained, but so sad, he played all the right beats as Julian.. And as for Nancy Lee Grahn, what can you say that is not been said.  Her portrayal of a woman with a battle with the bottle, and playing Alexis’ push-pull of her feelings for her man has continued to be riveting throughout this storyline.

So, what did you think of the Julexis Christmas scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I guess the only excuses I can come up with for Alexis’ weakness is that she was drunk (ish) and that Mr. DeVry is really sexy. Other than that, the knife to the throat thing is normally a turn-off for me.

The scene with Alexis and Julian was pure love. They love each other. I love their love. I am probably among a few who wants to see them back together. Make the explanation something that we can by bc Julian did try and kill her.

I loved them! Both the acting and writing were spot on. So many emotions played throughout these scenes and WDV/NLG played them perfectly. Outstanding performances. They are one of the best pairings GH has.

Ya…the ultimate killing each other love story-ba humbug-ill pass…oh, i have been visited by the ghosts of Super Couples past-Felicia and Frisco of GH…Doug and Julie of Days…Bob and Kim of ATWTs-those were the Christmas memories i rather have than watch these two morons!!!

JMER

Agreed, it is an insult to me as a Feminist and Julian was never anything but another guy from a crazy mob family who likes murder, control, manipulation. He never truly changed and apologized to core characters. Even NLG’s acting cannot rise above the many reasons this isn’t working.

Besides that, “I see you,” is eerily close to the Classic GH scene where Stone says those words to Robin before he dies. Have a little respect and don’t use those exact words for a drunken, abused woman looking at her abuser.

Marzy Dotes
Guest
Marzy Dotes

Eh I’m a feminist who knows not to look at soaps for that. Julian wasn’t someone who tried to kill the women he loved, Cheryl or Alexis until just recently. They did a 180 on Julian because his evolution made him more rootable than Sonny’s, period. Julian NEVER harmed or fantasized about harming the women he loved whether that be Cheryl or Alexis. IMO they destroyed him overnight to prop up Sonny. Too bad, because the show’s ratings during the summer were the show’s lowest ever.

I LOVED the Julexis scenes. The acting, as you said, was outstanding, and they showed, once again, how much chem they have. Plus I loved how emotional the writing was. Especially Julian’s dialog. This was the Julian I loved before the crazy 180 earlier this year. And now that we know Julian never intended to kill Alexis, I can’t wait for the revelation of what really happened.

William deVry’s performance was excellent with this script. I so wish the storyline writing of him attempting to kill Alexis had never happened. I think Julian and Alexis were a couple that seemed to belong together, but his twisted love for power and revenge seemed stronger. I don’t know if he can ever redeem himself and if they can get back together. It may make for an interesting storyline as there’d be plenty of reaction from family and friends. Nancy has done a great job playing Alexis struggling with alcoholism. But, I’m ready to see that storyline be moved on… Read more »

They better explain Julian’s previous actions away– like he was forced to try to kill her by this mystery boss of his– otherwise need to do a proper story about women trapped in abusive relationships– because right now that is Alexis is– the husband beats the wife, nearly murders her and then he says he is sorry, he loves her, she is everything to him, and she forgives him and makes rationalization for his abuse and the cycle starts again. I know Julian never hit Alexis, but he try to kill her and now he is abusing her emotionally by… Read more »

Hi Mary…this is a tough call. I wouldn’t’ t call what happened between Alexis and Julian as abuse. Crime of passion perhaps…an act of desperation born out of devastation. I truly don’t believe Julian would have actually killed Alexis. I think he loved her then and loves her still. He was enraged, scared, betrayed (in his mind), about to lose everything and everyone…and snapped. Other than this “episode” and I say this rather tongue and cheek…there was never any abuse; they were devoted to each other. So for whatever reason the hideous chain of events unfurled it was isolated. I… Read more »

This is exactly what i think!!! I think they will say he acted on orders but was never gonna do it since they’ve had him say repeatedly that he wasnt going to go through with it…and then if they say that its fixed! He was never going to do it. And I agree with you that Julian was not abusive before….he’s always been sweet to her and they arent portraying him as anywhere near abusive right now.

Marzy Dotes

Like most 180 overnight rewrites to destroy a popular character or couple, this one likely had an agenda attached. Usually you see this type of abrupt shift in writing after a HW and/or EP regime change and the priorities in story writing changes with a new showrunner or team coming in. A shame because the show’s just hanging on and needs everything that makes it more likely to remain on the air. Obviously a rewrite’s been done to try to undo the damage that happened earlier this year thorough in my opinion clearly poor decision making (esp given the dismal… Read more »

I try to like Alexis, but except for her lawyer skills and loyalty to friends and family, there is a part of her that is self destructive when it comes to her taste in men…except Jax and Ned. But she didn’t have kids with them. Her relationship with Julian has always been denial as to what he was about, and then she enabled him or looked the other way re: Duke and Carlos. Right now I’m frustrated by her refusal to get help for her drinking problem…I don’t care if she looses her law credentials if what she does do… Read more »

Rebecca1
Guest

I do agree, Rose, that it’s ridiculous and not believable that no one can detect alcohol on Alexis when they’re close. Perhaps she’s popping mints! Though, don’t they say there are some alcoholics and drug users who are able to hide their addiction? She’s not slurring her words, walking zigzag or falling down. Her ruddy face or sometimes teary eyes can be explained away because of her stress, depression, mental exhaustion: she’s always coherent when her kids confront her. They don’t know about the accident so…. Jax had to leave; his mom was in the hospital. Alexis swore she’d get… Read more »

Rebecca1
Guest

One more point, Mary. I also don’t think he’s abusing her by “forcing” her to look after him. I think he’s genuinely concerned about her drinking and this way he accomplishes two birds with one stone…keeping an eye on her and trying to get her help (as per her drinking) and hoping to win her back….

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

I think that is what the writers want us to think– but for me, until they can explain the knife to the throat — not rationalize it away — he was under stress, he was cornered– he snapped– those are all excuses abusive men use to explain their conduct, and then they are so sorry and so sweet trying to get the woman to forgive him, to question her own ideas of what is right and wrong– so she will take him back and boom he does it again. I don’t think the writers are inferring Julian is abusive– but… Read more »

Genuinely concerned”! Was he “genuinely concerned” about her welfare when he took the knife to kill her? I repeat: “Come on!”

Rebecca1
Guest
Rebecca1

Again…it’s a soap. So, yes, I think he loved her, loves her still…and lost his mind. I think he’s doing her a favor by not turning her in…she’s about to get her law license back and an arrest now would destroy that. I didn’t see today’s episode yet but I hope he tells Sam instead and she can get Alexis help…discreetly. And yes, Mary, I do agree. I hope they come up with something convincing…or at least make us believe he would never have killed her. I choose to believe he never would have.

I love Julexis & believe the writers will find a way to bring them back & make it work. William DeVry was given the best lines yesterday & he played them beautifully…moved me to tears. Exceptional work by both actors. They both gave everything they had in those scenes. DeVry & Grahn have that once in a lifetime kind of chemistry that you don’t just toss away. They’re pure gold together & an asset to ABC Network & General Hospital. I look forward to seeing where this story goes & I’m confident that Julian’s actions will be explained & Julexis… Read more »

Couldn’t agree more. Julexis had the misfortune of being a victim of an out of nowhere story that didn’t make any sense. They add so much to GH. Bring on the explanation and let these two do what they do best…rock GH

nancy dillingham
Guest
nancy dillingham

Yes indeedy, it surely is a “rocky” relationship–premeditated murder is apt to “rock” and couple–and it DID “rock” GH. Once again GH is doing what it does the “best”–taking a character way too far–then trying to redeem that character–doesn’t work–never has, never will. That’s precisely what has angered so many long-loyal fans–including me.

Well I didn’t like Julian moving back in with Alexis and now is making her life a living hell when he try to kill her and she run him down and now they are living together again and kissing one another but what will come for next week Monday and what will they both do next can’t wait to watch

Marzy Dotes
Guest
Marzy Dotes

Those scenes were pretty brutal. But I think MF captured in his article what played into them. Yes she kissed him after drinking copious amounts of liquor. It doesn’t mean that she’s going to take him back. I think if anything she’ll lash back at him. The Monday sneak peak looks good and it seems they’ve got much more material coming up. I saw spoilers of Franco factoring into it (b/c of Tom?) and other stuff.

What amazing Julexis scenes! Nancy and Wil were superb. Twitter is still abuzz. I wish they had never gone this route with Julexis, but since they did, I think they should provide an explanation. As much as some say Alexis should not take him back, I say Julian never would have tried to kill her. THAT is the unbelievable part that requires an explanation. Perfectly played yesterday by Grahn and deVry!

Cassie

Exactly. Exactly. Julian would have NEVER done what they showed him doing months ago. So I have NO problem with this change of direction. It makes a heck of a lot more sense than their first 180. Bring on Julexis.

You see, that’s the thing. Alexis isn’t in her “right mind” while she is drinking alcohol, and this sucks because Alexis has this drinking problem now… because of whatever situations that she has been put through and into in her life… including with Julian… but Julian is also not the sole base of her problems. It goes into her familial history with The Cassadine’s and the death of Alexis’s mother and how that all went about way back when.

No way would she be kissing him if she weren’t drunk and there wasn’t this nostalgia going on. I think it’s a combo between the two. I think her history plays into what seems to be a driving factor more than fear for her which is betrayal. Looking forward to seeing it play out. I’ll take that over a story where a woman’s shot up with lizard blood or the latest attempt to “redeem” Franco. Or a bunch of 20 something couples with zero story, because those along with Carson,appear to be the designated pairings the show’s reluctant to damage.… Read more »

Ell, I feel as you do but with all the viewers wanting these two back together, they have to write some feasable excuse for all the craziness and Julian’s reason for trying to kill Alexis or the even crazier excuse they will give Julian like ” they were watching to make sure I did the deed, or at least tried” Meanwhile, she’s turned into this drunken sot, right in front of her daughters, who don’t even seem to notice. For God’s sake, don’t their noses work, if not their eyes? The whole thing is utterly nuts!

They seem to want everyone to be good people. Turning delicious villains into Monks and Nuns.. C’mon.. we all seen it coming, we knew Julian and Alexis would reunite..

Christmas was all about plot points in terms of who spent it with who a sharp contrast to the holidays last year. None of Alexis’ kids spent it with her. Two spent it with Sonny. In part to ensure Julexis would be alone. In part to try to sell Carson as the core family in PC (even ensuring Ava wouldn’t attempt to spend time with Avery for Christmas). That was especially true with all these people inexplicably spending Christmas with Valentin. This Krissy is all about her father, unlike where in the past she struggled with his mobsterism and getting… Read more »

Kristina wanted to spend the holiday with Alexis; she told her she was worried about her and didn’t want her to alone. It was Alexis who talked her into being with Sonny. We know why she wanted Kristina to go to Sonny’s…because she was planning on drinking. But her reason to Kristina made sense to Kristina and to the viewer; .Kristina and Sonny were mourning Morgan. Even if Alexis was doing well it would make sense for Kristinato be with her grieving father on their first Christmas without Morgan.

I’ll refer to Friday’s episode as the nightmare before Christmas.

Otherwise, we had a new murder, fake memories of a dead character and finally the town’s former most intelligent woman boozing it up and kissing the man who almost slit her throat.

Eh, Julian didn’t do that. He always respected Alexis’ boundaries sine his return to canvas in 2014. He NEVER abused a woman he loved. Not Cheryl back in 1988-90 and not Alexis in 2013- early 2016. Not until the riduculous rewrite that was done because Julian leaving the mob for his family made GH’s hero Sonny less sympathetic for staying in the mob. So Julian and thus Julexis had to be ruined to prop up St. Sonny as the hero of a low-rated GH. Far from ruined Alexis has got great material. NLG who plays Alexis is in the top… Read more »

I immediately stopped the episode(s)-I have no interest in the ridiculous stolen embryo of Lulu’s, her child with Valentin, Nina’s incessant, ongoing rant about wanting a child, Kiki-enough said (useless character), Carly and Sonny’s rehashed and rehearsed on-again/off-again “love” storyline, or boring/monotone Sam and Jason and having to endure the… Read more »

Are you all set for “Burns Night?” (Hope ’tis a fine one for you and yours….)

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
