GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Can’t See & Maxie and Nina Visit Nathan’s Grave

Photo: ABC

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, a now blind Ryan is freaking out, because as he is in the hospital (while Finn tries to figure out if the same virus that caused Anna’s temporary blindness caused his), he learns that Lulu is in surgery and still fighting for her life.  If she lives, she will name him as the culprit who stabbed her.

When Anna and Finn visit “Kevin”, Anna asks him if he ever worked for the WSB or DVX.  “Kevin” claims he did not.  Anna believes all of this is the handy work of a doctor who worked for the international spy rings.  Finn asks if “Kevin” had been in contact with something that wasn’t his recently, and it is then Ryan flashes to Lulu’s license, realizing he needs to find it and its in his coat pocket.

“Kevin” gets rid of Ava from his room, and attempts to get out of bed to get to his coat and locate Lulu’s driver’s license.  However, since he cannot see, the license goes under the hospital bed, and just as he is trying to grab it, Ava walks back in the room.

Meanwhile at GH. Jordan explains to Laura that the police found a bloody footprint going in the opposite direction from Lulu.  Valentin and Nina tell Charlotte that Lulu is in the hospital, and the little girl insists they go to her now.  Charlotte leaves with Valentin, Nina stays behind.

Elsewhere, Jason is underground trapped in some kind of built out setting to probably nefarious crimes. When Sam goes for help, the fire department shows up.   Sam calls her pal Spinelli!  She asks him to check the maps of pipes and tunnels under the city.  Spinelli reveals that the water system leads out to the harbor at Pier 55.  Jason also finds a small space that he is hoping to swim through to get to the other side of the pier.

Then, in touching scenes, Maxie goes to Nathan’s gravesite and reveals to her beloved late husband that she is getting closer to his brother, Peter.  She also admits she is scared to start a relationship with him.  She asks for a sign from Nathan if it is OK.  As she cries, Peter shows up with a handkerchief to wipe Maxie’s tears.  She admits she doesn’t know how to let go of Nathan and move on.  Peter assures her that Nathan will let her know when it’s time.

Later, Nina shows up and tells the duo about Lulu. They had to GH where Peter is then in question for the crime; being the last person they can substantiate that spoke to Lulu before she was stabbed.  Jordan also reveals to Laura that Lulu’s license is missing from her belongings.

I haven’t watched; however, I read online that the scenes were once again ruined, by propping up “the boyfriend.” Add Peter to Ryan’s list.

@DMR….Spoilers and recaps really are our friends!!! They save us countless time and aggravation by providing DEWS as to whom and what we don’t care to watch…which is sadly pretty much of anything and anyone on GH these days—-with rare exceptions, of course! As for adding Peter to Ryan’s “list?” Oh, yes, yes. PLEASE…along with so many other annoying Port Charles denizens, like Nina, Alexis, Lucy, Aunt Stella, Amy, et al….Let Ryan go out in a blaze of serial killing glory, and take with him as much GH deadweight as possible!!!

DMR

Agreed, Shay. It’s sad, because when I watch old episodes (80’s or 90’s), the show was so great. Nowadays, it’s unwatchable.

Shay

Oh, I hear you, DMR! Initially, I thought that maybe I was just thinking back to the GH glory days through rose-colored memories….like everyone sometimes does when they recall certain real-life aspects of the past…and that my recollections were simply overrated. But then, I began watching some of the truly iconic characters and their impressive storylines of the ‘80’s, like Laura’s return from the dead, Frisco’s debut and yes, Luke and Laura’s wedding, and you know what? They all stood the test of time and still gave me goosebumps…WE are not wrong in our contentions that the show WAS so great…and even though we obviously enjoyed it immeasurably the first time around, I believe we now have an ever-increasing appreciation for the classic GH that we knew and loved back in the day, particularly compared to its currently dismal modern state.

DMR

YES, Shay! Well-said. & I loved Laura’s return back in the early 80’s!!! #classicgh & I loved Frisco & Felicia!!

Me too! Just can’t understand the intense dislike of Peter by some unless it’s because he’s Laura’s boyfriend, they think he’s getting special treatment because of this, and add this to the fact many can’t stand Carly.

Wednesday episode was exciting the only thing that ruined the whole episode was Jason and sam, these two are so boring everthing about them bores me to no end.

I just cannot invest in any of the story lines that feature Peter. I’ve got nothing against the actor at all. It’s the fact that his character was introduced under a very specific set of circumstances and with a clear personality profile. He was not a “good guy”. Since then the writers have exhausted themselves trying to re-write and redeem him, using every trick in their apparently limited book. It’s exactly the same trajectory they have taken with Valentin, Julian and Franco. It’s as if they think we are not paying attention and they can play fast and loose with these characters. If the writers were really sharp they would make the character of Shiloh 100% sincere, and not take him down the cartoon rabbit hole for which he is heading. How refreshing would it be for viewers to have the usual sanctimonious favorite characters be proven wrong and maybe even learn something about themselves? Yet, every time I read quotes from Shelly Altman she seems so self-satisfied and promises so much more than she is capable of delivering. While there are a lot of good things to appreciate about the show (most certainly the acting), overall I find it frustrating and unsatisfying. Don’t misunderstand – I love GH and it is “my show”, but I think it’s we loyal, long-term fans who are the most ill-served. I want the show to thrive and continue, but these writers, especially Shelly Altman, are just not cutting it. Long live GH!

Maxie and Peter=predictable…Sam and Jason are only good together when my sleeping pill isnt working=terrible acting and as boring as ever…likes Sam better with Drew…im all for the Qs but Jason hasnt felt like one since he fell in love with Sonny!!!

But Dave, if they put GH on the radio, I will no longer be able to use the closed captions when Sam speaks.

Lol. I guess they could employ some sort of tap code for captions. It couldn’t be anymore time consuming or confusing than the -“why did i just lose an hour for that”?- time already spent On a daily basis.lol.

You know what would be even better and still give you your captions Harry? Broadcast it daily in the style of Mystery Science Theatre 3000. Oh i wish, i wish,i wish. It would be hilarious.

YEP = sans Lulu… Jon Lindstrom ‘ Ryan really came on strong with the chill

his speech “telling” lulu the truth is standing right in front of you… with a bit more daring research… after he tells her their were two more victims that never came to light… and he just put one step forward and never let up

it’s aching to watch him with Ava… knowing she doesn’t even have a clue what she’s dealing with.. because it’s so much fun watching Jon/Kevin/Ryan machinations with any one.. and the tantalize of watching the dreamy “Jon” Kevin/Ryan with Ava.. is so real enough that its going to be a fallout… and go back to the staid missionary hot chocolate innocence. effin what ? blech

A fire has been lit searing tantalize @Shelly and Chris you can’t back down from the quality you have at your disposal… yeah.. disposal of a gifted cast left for dead because you can’t even write all your stories because you are limited with the dullard

you cannot ring up an effin thing using the same cast over and over and over: they are not gifted enough.. after all this effin time.. they are BORING

Sonny and Carly ; Jason and Sam ; Michael / Finn / Franco / Peter have run their course

Frank Valentini MUST be fired

Laura Wright
Maurice Benard
Wes Ramsey are not deserving of the pre-nom emmy

Please, no more scenes which involve people talking to gravestones. Those scenes are deadly boring. Jon Lindstrom is positively chilling playing Ryan pretending to be Kevin. He has more than made up for the holes in the writing. That said, I am still beyond irritated that the writers went out of their way to not involve Felicia and Mac in the “Ryan Returns!” story. Ryan was always obsessed with Felicia (she was his muse)and he hated Mac with a passion–he had some unfinished business with the both of them. But for some inexplicable, out-of-character reason, Ryan orbits around Frank’s pets–Ava, Sonny and Carly, all of whom have nothing to do with Ryan’s back story. Indeed. When Lucy was reading from her “Port Charles Tales” at her book launch party we should have been treated to Ryan’s reaction. Now that would have been interesting. Instead, he’s sequestered in his office administering therapy to Sonny and Carly which invariably leads to Sonny going back to Morgan’s grave to mumble some more. I suppose Lucy’s book was a way to appease fans who wanted a character driven story but instead we were force fed more Ava, Sonny and Carly. It’s a case of Frank throwing crumbs at the long time viewers.
More holes:1. After Lulu is almost murdered by the serial killer, the police do not station an armed guard outside her hospital room. Surely the police commissioner and Lulu’s mother (who happens to be the mayor) would be worried that the serial killer would come back to finish the job before she could identify her attacker. 2. Maxie is all gleeful when Peter is released from the police station. Lulu is her best friend and she doesn’t once ask how Lulu, who was nearly killed, is doing. She just wants to spend time with Peter. This is another mistake. 3. Robert comes to town and one would think he’d be by his old friend Laura’s side giving her comfort at Lulu’s bedside. Instead, we have Sonny giving her comfort. Why are Sonny and Carly suddenly Laura’s best friends? 4. No one has once mentioned Luke or Lucky. Wouldn’t someone mention trying to contact them in order to let them know their daughter/sister was viciously attacked and hovering on the threshold of death?

Thank you, Harry!!! You have made so many salient points here regarding the numerous shortcomings of the current Ryan/Kevin storyline. It were as if the history of these legacy characters never happened in the first place…God forbid GH show some fealty to the events and people who were actually involved in the original tale of these twin brothers’ mirth, merriment and murder! It’s simply not logical…and totally expected given the present regime’s main objective to very obviously highlight the usual suspect Frankenpets at any cost! Having said that, the most egregious oversight in this storyline was not having Robert there for Laura in her hour of need….that’s simply unthinkable for the loyal Scorpio! As for Lucy and her trashy book, the less said, the better! I cannot stand that woman and her self-centered bluster….it’s always, always about her…no matter what!

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?
