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
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!

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!

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
