GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Wedding, A Serial Killer & The Heartbreaking Truth

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, several residents finds themselves at crossroads and one in instant peril, as Thanksgiving continues in Port Charles.

In touching scenes played by Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and Garren Stitt (Oscar), Josslyn confronts Oscar that she knows he is sick.  Oscar is furious with Cameron for telling her. Josslyn is saddened that he pushed her away, saying they will fight this together.  He reveals to her that he has an inoperable brain tumor and will die and has but a year to live. Oscar does tell her about the drug trial that could save his life, but he won’t to it, because of the potential side effects that could wrong with it, and that he wants to live out what time he has on his terms.

Laura (Genie Francis) walks in on who she believes is her husband, Kevin, but it’s Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) in a big smooch with Ava Jerome (Maura West).   Ryan tells Laura their marriage is over.  A shocked and devastated Laura tells him the fact that he is with a woman who sold out her son, makes this the ultimate betrayal.  She rips up Ava’s donation to her mayoral campaign, which is why she came to the Jerome gallery in the first place, and walked in on the lip-lock.  Laura also tells Ryan she see’s nothing behind his eyes anymore that remotely reminds her of the Kevin she married.   Can Laura figure this out?

After Laura leaves, Ryan and Ava admit they enjoyed that kiss . Ava suggests they spend Thanksgiving together.  Ryan reveals he is so glad she didn’t leave town. However, Ava says she still may have to leave Port Charles, because she can’t stand to be in the same town with Kiki.  When Ava suggests they go to her place, Ryan offers to meet her there because he has some business to take care of, first.

Griffin (Matt Cohen) and Kiki (Hayley Erin) are late to Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) wedding, after they decide to undress (after they get dressed to the nines for the nuptials) and have sex.  After they make love, Griffin gets a call from Monica (Leslie Charleson) saying that the boards results are in as to if he has been reinstated at the hospital. Those results are at GH, and he should pick them up there.  Since they are late for the wedding, Griffin heads out to the hospital, while Kiki gets ready to head to the wedding and meet him there.

At the Q’s Thanksgiving celebration, Kim (Tamara Braun) tells Julian (William deVry) that she wants his goons to kidnap Oscar if he wins his emancipation trial from his parents, and take him to Brazil for the treatment that will save his life.  Drew (Billy Miller) overhears this and is enraged that she would do such a thing to their son.

Curtis and Jordan are now getting ready to say their “I do’s” when the minister asks if there is anyone that has just cause that the duo should not be wed in holy matrimony.  Cue, Stella (Vernee Watson) who walks in looking very unhappy.  Will she unravel the wedding … or sit down and be a part of the celebration after getting some words of wisdom from Mike (Max Gail)?

At the end of the episode, we come upon a few key moments:  Oscar shows up at the Q’s door as his parents Drew and Kim are thrilled to see him, Josslyn comes home to the Corinthos’ and drops to the floor in tears over Oscar, and Ryan shows up at Kiki’s door, just as she is heading out for the wedding, and it looks like he has murder on his mind.

So, is this the end of the road for Kiki?  Will Stella stand down or bust up the nuptials?  Will Oscar have the treatment to try to save his life? What should Laura’s next move be? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I haven’t watched Monday’s episode. I am interested in watching all of the highlights, EXCEPT, Oscar, Kim, and Josslyn-not interest in Kim “Zero” or her offspring. I love Ava, and Kevin/Ryan.

I knew this was COMING!! Ava’s CRAZY unrelenting obsessive behavior with getting revenge on Kiki and Griffin… Would ultimately cost Kiki her life.
Ryan will use the white scarf to strangle her, Kiki will end up at the hospital with a slight chance but no real hope of surviving.

Ava is in no way responsible for what a psychopath does. All Ava did was vent her emotions to who she thought was a stable, safe, psychiatrist. In no way, in her wildest imagination would she ever think she was with a serial killer. Nor would she ever knowingly put Kiki’s life at risk.

Ava will be devastated, shocked, grief-stricken and hopefully full of rage. I’d like her to be the one that takes Ryan down.

Love Ava!

I noticed that Auntie Stella changed her outfit & was dressed up,so I bet she will be staying & finally accepting of the marriage.
As for Kiki/Ryan,he has something horrific planned, unfortunately.
After Sabrina’s murder, why do we viewers have to suffer through another death of a young person in such a terrible manner?Just write the character off in some way;enough violence.

Ryan murders Kiki to keep Ava from leaving…Stella reveals Curtis is her son…the Qs eat pizza as usual-why not just go to Dennys!…Laura wonders if Kevin is really Luke in a mask-lol

Jimh, Your remark about Curtis being Stella’s son, would make sense in so many ways. One is why she is so possessive and doting, among other things. She was a young woman, her love affair went bad, so she has the baby, and gives it to her sister to raise with her own son. Seems like she’s been watching out for him since birth. If this turns out to be true, she’ll be the mother-in-law from hell! What you said about Laura and Ryan is so true. Its like she knows he’s not Kevin, but her brain can’t figure it… Read more »

Hello, Jimh! So n ice to hear from you! I apologize for taking so long to reply……and I’m sorry you have not been well. Hope you are feeling better by now!!! I’m too far behind on GH to really comment on the most recent episodes, but I will say I’m so glad Britt is back…she is only one of a handful of newer characters that has really ever shown any charisma, along with her “Mutter,” of course! May they have an epic Christmas reunion, and you a happy, healthy holiday season! Take care!

Hey, Shay, Hmmmm…. That could explain her dislike of Jordan…..Stella, the ugly duckling turned the sophistique’ swan overnight, is suffering from a good dose of self-loathing. If she is, indeed, Curtis’ mother, she has ‘indulged’ in that of which she accuses Jordan….. slept with her sister’s husband? How wonders never cease!!. …..Unless, Stella was very young when she had Curtis and her married sister adopted him? Perhaps, the man we met, a few weeks ago, as Stella’s past love, is the father? Amazing how Stella’s wardrobe changed from drab to fab in a NY minute. Suddenly she is this well-spoken,… Read more »

Absolutely, CeeCee!!! I picked up on Stella’s maternal vibe almost immediately! I figured back then she was once a young gal who got into trouble and her sister stepped up to rear “Baby Curtis” for her…It would seem that the new dude in town could very well be her babydaddy….and why she has taken special pains to sharpen up both her wardrobe and image!!! Only time will tell….Later!

Hello, Shaybelle, We’re in sync where Stella is concerned…..every day is a new revelation ……I hope her story unfolds as you predict…❤️ PS….We finally went to see FREDDIE’s story ( girls-night-out)….What can I say?? It was a pretty good rendition, yet I could not get into it…..my sisters thought Malek was incredibly en pointe…..hmmmm, well….that’s because they have never been true fans.

@CeeCee….I totally “get” your reaction to BR…I told you before that I found it to be a well-made nostalgia trip back to another time and place, but there was really not one minute that I bought into the notion that Malek “was” Freddie Mercury, despite the fact he did a very credible acting job. In all candor, he seemed a bit too soft and pretty to fill the role….not nearly as powerfully masculine, physically imposing or charismatically charming as the original issue. (In fact, there was a split second early on in the band’s history when a poutily-posed performing Rami… Read more »

Hello, my Shay, I have a two-hour class-free break, LOL. I do believe you have described my feelings exactly…..another soapland friend who gets me. I like your remark on Malek’s trying-to-imitate- Freddie’s pout. Hilarious…..considering Freddie’s pout was not deliberate….his teeth gave him that “pouty” look….. To me, Shay? Even his ‘jutting’ teeth looked fantastic….they were part of his persona. Actually, the story behind his teeth is that his dentist had advised Freddie not to tamper with his teeth because any work would affect his vocal chords.

I admit that GH has had issues as of late. However, this episode was so spectacular. It was restrained yet powerful. Watching Joss and Oscar was like a sucker punch at the heart. No one says this enough but the actor who plays Oscar is so good. And the actress who plays Joss has really been doing so well. She was great in her fight scene with Nelle and then this with Oscar….SUPERB! I am all for drama like this. GH is lost lately, but the actors make it work. All of them. Let’s keep up this kind of work… Read more »

I agree, Mateo. Oscar is underrated because he sounds and acts naturally, not “actorish”. He accomplishes a lot with very little histrionics. Most of the other stories now are either unpleasant (Ryan & Ava) or dull (the wedding, Nina’s fake daughter). Killing Kiki is a big mistake if that’s where they’re heading.

Hi, Mateo,
I agree about Oscar. I have been forever singing his praises. He is one of my favorite new, young actors…..and Joss, as well. I love them together….each showing a maturity, so unlike kids that age.
I appreciate how the PTB are ‘handling’ ( for lack of a better word), Oscar’s struggle and acceptance of what has befallen him at this tender age.
And, I love Joss’s solicitousness…….what will become of them? It would be a shame if the soap gods decided to “do away” with Oscar…..

Killing Kiki is over the top–just as the “headless” nurse in the gallery. GH does not care about the fans–just the gratuitous violence. It seems bent on losing its viewers–not nurturing well-established characters.

Nancy, guess they think that all this violence will ultimately prove how crazy Ryan really is, but I think we’ve figured this out already.

I like Haley Erin as Kiki. I was not a fan of the original Kiki (ex-Starr). Haley has really grown into the role and has made it her own. I agree with you, the writers do not nurture characters or storylines. They just throw a bunch of $%$% against the wall and hope something sticks.

Agreed, Nancy. This upsets me also. We get enough mindless violence on the news. They ruined Helena Cassadine for me due to her love of sadism. We don’t need more.

Helena was always sadistic, cruel, crazy. That was the fun of Helena! And Faison, Stavros… Ryan is a serial killer. If he doesn’t kill anyone…why do the story? Violet: (hi!) “Violence will ultimately prove how crazy Ryan really is, but I think we’ve figured this out already???” We didn’t need to figure it out; we knew it from the start. He’s Ryan the serial killer. So, of course they’re going to show at least one murder; probably more. It’s the story of a killer! If you watch a crime drama or film…there’s going to be…murder (s)!!!!

Yes–and to kill Kiki on Thanksgiving is just too much irony for me.
Btw, re “Kevin”–I think Laura is being depicted as just too passive; she should be the one to find the real Kevin, not Carly–where the writers are obviously headed with the storyline.

I am beyond disappointed how GH has taken their stories. I have already mentioned before that there are no happy stories anymore. And now they add this gruesome Ryan killing Kiki story. Kiki had grown on me over the years thanks to the actress, and the fact that they finally had a younger character who took on a doctor who had tried to seduce her and won, as well as working to become a doctor instead of some airhead. And they kill her off. This is a copout when you can’t think of any other creative way to write the… Read more »

Ava is a character that should have gone a long time ago–specifically, when she committed murder. It’s confounding why the writers or TPTB are so enamored with the character of Ava.
Pure evil is no fun at all. A flawed character CAN be fascinating if written well. Doesn’t apply to Ava.

Ava is one of my favorite characters! Not only do I not find her pure evil, I don’t find her evil at all. Has she done hateful things? The only one I can’t forgive her for was framing AJ. The other things? Meh. She’s done way less than Sonny and Carly. Ava is a muti-faceted character. She’s not Helena, Faison, Ryan. THEY are pure evil! She’s of the criminal element, but in actuality hasn’t been in the mob in years. She feels remorse, regret, hurt, rage…lashes out when wounded. I love her and don’t even get me started when Carly… Read more »

“Has she done hateful things?” Well, yeah! How about killing Connie, for starters?! And she plotted to kill her brother! Not multi-faceted, just oh-so-predictable–thus B-O-R-I-N-G–the death (pun intended, here 🙂 knell of a good, multi-faceted villain. That said, I’m not excusing Sonny nor nor Jason, etc, etc, etc. The whole show is skewed, “bent,” that way–has been for a long time, ever since TPTB became enamored with killers, evil persons whom they kept on the show when they were written in a corner–taken too far–then the writers tried to “redeem” them. Anecdotally, one thing that is particularly repugnant is when… Read more »

To each his/her own, Nancy. I could care less that she killed Connie. Connie was no saint (though I liked when Megan played her). She agreed to marry Sonny…and he kills people! So, ummm, if she’s okay with that then I guess she accepted the risks. And was okay with others getting killed. Ava didn’t just randomly shoot her; she found out Ava and Julian were Jeromes and was going to expose them. It was a “business” move. Oh, well. Don’t remember Ava trying to kill Julian.

Some of the best and most memorable soap storylines of the past featured deaths and murders….first of all, they were great ways to pare down top-heavy casts and often get rid of annoying and unpopular characters, plus the fallout provided by such dramatic losses made them the gifts that kept on giving even months later. I can get that there are viewers who are attached to certain characters and are sad to see them go, but what is the point of soaps if they don’t reflect the vicissitudes of real life? That means portraying the good and bad, happy and… Read more »

Hi Shay…Yes there good and bad, happy and sad days, and people who die in real life. But I thought soaps were supposed also there to pick up our spirits, at least for a few hours a day. But GH has been miserably, consistently, depressing lately. And they don’t need Ryan to “kill” off characters in his grizzly manner to accommodate actors other opportunities or just pare down the cast. They can go somewhere else in the world, or get another job elsewhere, join the military. Haven’t the writers learned that even years later it nice to have someone like… Read more »

I partially agree with you, Rose. I, too, loved walking down memory lane watching that classic GH Thanksgiving. I miss those days, those characters, relationships… that complete feeling like you were walking into a familiar home and families. It was a time for soaps that we’ll never get back. Many of the characters we loved are passed, retired or fired. The core families gone. Just a massacre. With that said, I love the Ryan story. Jon Lindstom is amazing. I’ve been looking forward to the show again and I can’t wait to see what happens. I’m much more upset by… Read more »

Rebecca1…Good to hear from you. Where I do agree with you on the Ryan story is that Jon Lindtrom is great in the role. And we still have his better half having to be recused from Ferncliff. But I wish his killings weren’t so awful. This time i don’t mind Carly being involved, but I hope it’s Laura and Spencer who find Ryan out. Or even Ava? Now this would make an interesting twist. Maybe another step in her redemption which will take much doing. She’s been very, very bad, and the writers have really painted her into a corner.… Read more »

A ho-hum yawn wedding with a ho-him Boring couple.
A serial killer that is a cream-puff ppphhttt
A guy that I knew wouldn’t die from day one moping around eeerking everyone

GH is totally empty of drama.. soaps are dramas, but GH lost itself after everyone was turned into saints, even the bad guys are sweethearts and that gives us BORING TO DEATH stories.

that Ryan guy is the worst soap serial killer dud in soap history.. I never saw a boring lame serial killer, before Ryan.

no one to root for no one to hate to their deaths, its so mundane.

Have to disagree, su. I am loving this story! I think Jon as Ryan is playing his part to the hilt. Quiet, reserved, ironic…you can feel his “darkness” and his difference from Kevin (as a viewer). LOVED the Mary Pat bobbing head/apple…hahah..was so hideous and freaked me out…well done! And Kiki? I can’t stand her but I still think her murder is sad. But a great story! Lots of good scenes, stories to follow from this as Ava, Franco, react…

It’s getting good! Go grab an apple and watch the fallout!

nancy dillingham
Guest
nancy dillingham

Hi Rebecca, I agree that Jon is playing the sociopathic Ryan well–understated but pure evil–and those eyes that drill through.
BUT the pace is way too slow and the “chopping up” (no pun intended! 🙂 of the scenes drains the story of any real momentum and thus of drama and suspense.
AND there there should be more scenes solely with Laura so that Genie Francis can work her skills as SHE fingers Ryan and confronts him. What a scene that could be! I’m thinking “Midnight Lace” and “Wait Until Dark,” etc.

Agreed…with such a large cast, it’s hard to focus on a specific character or storyline. The focus will be on a character or storyline for a week or two, then nothing. I often forget about characters and storylines. Strangely, we haven’t seen much of Lucy, Felicia, or Mac during the Ryan’s reign of terror. It’s such a shame. So many missed opportunities.

rebecca1
Guest

Oh, I totally agree with that, AVP. One of the things I was looking to the most was bringing back and really featuring Lucy, Felicia and Mac. But these writers have no interest in the history or what older viewers remember. They brought him back but took his story to the characters that are already on the canvas. One, they’re always trying to attract younger viewers and they could care less if Felicia died or was still Ryan’s focus. They don’t really know “her.” No history with her, Mac or Lucy. There’s no emotional investment there. I think she and… Read more »

I am sorry, but Hayley Erin is far from the best actress on the soap. Is she good in the context of the role? Yes. But the best? No. And I think quitting a show — whether daytime or primetime — because an actor/character is killed off is sad. Many have left prior, and many will continue to leave. Clearly, you are not a loyal viewer for the long-term.

Best actress on the show? That’s a bit of a stretch. Though she was admittedly miles ahead of the completely untalented Disney princess whom she replaced, who could neither act nor sing, despite ReRon’s insistence on forcing the belief she could do both.

Kiki actually became tolerable, once she was completely freed of the OLTL baggage.

As for Days….. that show is now suffering the same fate that GH did after 2012. And ReRon is treating Will & Sonny just like he did Jason & Sam… and it’s getting old already.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
