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

Courtesy: ABC

If you caught Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, you witnessed Cynthia Watros (Nina), well, being what she does best, delivering a performance that only Cynthia Watros can do!

Everyone knew the nuptials of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina were potentially cursed with all of the secrets looming, especially the major one that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not Nina’s biological daughter.  After overhearing as conversation between Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Sasha in the women’s bathroom, Lulu (Emme Rylan) just had to tell the truth right in the middle of the long-awaited wedding of the  lovebirds.

After dropping the bombshell during the the ceremony, at first, Nina could not believe this at all, especially coming from Lulu; who is still dealing with the fact that her marriage to Dante is over, so why would she want anyone else to be happy? Problem was when Nina asked Sasha to just set the record straight,  she didn’t the way Nina had thought she would.  Sasha goes into the story on how she duped Nina for money, but then became so fond of her, and loved her like a daughter would.

Valentin is freaking out, because he knows he could be implicated in this mess, and while there was no proof on hand of how three DNA tests were all switched to make it look like Sasha was a DNA match for Nina’s bio-daughter, he looked the guilty party as well.  A betrayed and angry Nina feels in her gut that Valentin had something to do with this, and is rocked to her core that he lied to her again.  Nina screams she has to get out of the chapel.

Then, who should just be coming by at the right time outside the nuptials, that knight in shining armor, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher).   They make a exit together, where Jax takes Nina back to his brand new home that is barely furnished at this point, but there is a couch! And there is some scotch!  When Jax tries to calm Nina down, so she will talk about what has happened, all that she says so far is that Sasha is not her daughter, and that she never had one.

Back at the wedding, Valentin vows revenge on Lulu. Liesl lies to Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that she had no idea that Sasha was not Nina’s daughter, and Valentin makes a call to someone.

When the smoke clears from this one .. we predict these possibilities:  Jax and Nina share more than a kiss … Nina go back to Valentin and this charade of his involvement in bringing Sasha to town remains a cover-up and she gives him yet another chance .. or is it 100% curtains for Valentin?  Stay tuned.

Whatever happens next, Cynthia Watros reminded us all why she is a force to be reckoned with on daytime screens, or any acting medium for that matter.

    I think Staff and Jax would have had more chemistry than Waltros but I do like her away from Valentin. He is a wimp and a liar! He deserves nothing! Maybe he kills Lulu and Nick resurfaces and kills Valentin!

    nope sorry… no offense to Cynthia Watros… but I still prefer Michelle S. in the role of Nina

      I like both. Michelle brought a softness & vulnerability to Nina, coupled with crazy!

    Soapy! Cynthia Watros is growing on me. Please, oh please, get rid of the newly permed Parking Lot Flop. He is the worst actor. Am I the only one who thinks he salivates over every male he encounters. NO chemistry with Kirsten, and she has become just as awkward as The Flop.

      @DMRR…Your posts regarding your most favorite “bete noire” never disappoint! When even a character’s mere hairstyle grates upon one, you know that it’s truly time for them to go…asap! I felt the same about “Old Nina,” although “NuNina” doesn’t grab my fancy either. Quite frankly, I’m all for the “NoNina” option!

      Not a fan of the actor either and the new hair is really bad, but why do you call him parking lot? Just curious.

    I can’t help but wonder what’s happening to Lulu as she deals with her divorce; who’s she becoming. And there’s something about her teacher-boyfriend that makes me wonder if he’s as good as he seems.

    How these folks are gonna get out of this mess remains to be seen but I hope it’s messy and takes a while; not a one day show where all is forgiven and forgotten.

    Totally boring! I’m sorry but it was totally predictable and the acting was lackluster. NuNina may be a good actress but she is wrong for this role.

    Would love for Nina and Jax to become a couple. They look GREAT together!

    I know a lot of fans have strong feelings on this subject, but no matter how you feel about this recast or this character, you must admit Cynthia Watros has some acting chops! I have really enjoyed her in the character and I thought she acted the hell out of this episode. It was very soapy and worth the wait!

      Yep. It was as if Annie Dutton walked through a painting in Springfield and came out in Port Charles.

        @Channing Capwell…How very well put…In fact, that is how most of GH’s endless parade of soap retreads strikes me…they are just playing a continuing version of their previous characters. (Especially the vast majority of those from OLTL and AMC..in those cases, they’re not even “thinly veiled,” but “in your face!”)

    I can’t wait for Valentin to kill Lulu, and well he should, I insist.
    But- that won’t happen, sigh..
    He brought this on himself nonetheless Lulu needs to be taken out by Valintine, yup.
    Lulu irks the bejeezus outta me so her being taken out would be a good thing.

    I knew Nina and Jax would be hooking up that was a given.
    So– I hope Valentin will finally become a true Cassadine and do what a revengeful Cassadine would do and give me some spellbinding drama!!

    Watros/Nina gave an absolutely stunning performance BRAVA!!

    • Channing Capwell

      October 10, 2019 at 3:34 am

      I would love for Valentin to kill Lulu and then Laura to kill Valentin, in very quick order.

    • DMRR

      October 10, 2019 at 9:54 am

      Yes! Kill Lulu and shut her up!

      • Davy

        October 10, 2019 at 2:50 pm

        Amen Lulu is horrible!

    • Satan

      October 10, 2019 at 12:28 pm

      There will be no killing Lulu! She’s the only one of Luke & Laura’s kids currently in Port Charles, and one of two people that actually uses the Spencer name (Bobbie being the other one. I can’t really count the recast “cousin Valerie” since she’s had about 30 total seconds of airtime.

      Now on the other horn, if Lulu was to be injured and woke up with Julie Berman’s face again, I wouldn’t have any problem with that at all.

    • rose

      October 11, 2019 at 6:51 pm

      su000/Channing/DMRR…Why do you have to use “killing?” There’s enough of that going on in the “real” world. Just send Lulu on her Haunted Star to somewhere else far away.

      • su000

        October 12, 2019 at 2:27 pm

        GH is beyond dull, it’s empty of drama.
        Killing Lulu would blow some life into GH..
        A whodunit, and hopefully some intrigue and suspense; like during the ol’days.

        putting Lulu on a boat to nowhere has no purpose in creating the desperately needed drama..
        GH is Empty of all a soap needs to be a soap of quality.

        heh yah– kill Lulu !!
        ‘sides she irks the H outta me.

          Su000…I just refrain from using the words hate and kill. But that’s me. Like you Lulu irks me, too. So to try to put a little “drama” into her story because we still have to have some Spencer’s, let her sail away for a while during which time she discovers Drew on a desert island where he parachuted when his plane crashed. The way things are back home he’s not so sure he wants to come back to Port Charles. But since he is an honorable man of course he will return. Just having some soap fun.

            Hi Rose 🙂
            GH does not need a Spenser.
            That family took a death dive when Luke left..
            Soaps lose families, especially when their purpose has gone north.

            Lulu has no real purpose, she is filler to irate me lol

            The Quartermain’s died off and had a need to bring in Michael to be a predominate Q..
            not to mention others
            (for one, Oliver)brought in to hold the Q name, and it all failed.

            Lulu needs to go. Sorry 🙁

            Su000…I guess we just have to adjust to the fact that all legacy families in both soaps and real life pass away. Seems they never have enough kids with the same dreams, guts or smarts to carry on the family traditions the way the originals did. Maybe that’s why many really like Downton Abbey. It’s a time and place frozen in time where even the advent of the telephone was like the equivalent for many of us now with tech and apps. And I’m not so sure I would want to see what the Crawley’s, etc are up to now.

      Deborah…I like Michelle way better as Phyllis on Y&R. I wasn’t sure about Cynthia at first, but she is starting to grow on me in the role of Nina. And I like her with Jax. Of course this will set up real problem with Valentin. So between Jax, Laura, and maybe Spenser hope to see some real Cassadine drama.

        What will it take to open Nina’s eyes? Maybe if she’d take off those rose colored glasses she wears around Valentin. I know she wants to believe him, but the constant lying drives me nuts. Maybe Nicolas returning will force her to face the truth. I have no patience or pity for her

    Cynthia’s getting better in the role and making it her own. Would Michelle been better? Of course!

    But with the situation that was handed, we got one good actress for another that was equally good.

    This should be a turning point for Cynthia as her interactions with key players will finally reveal if she was truly the right choice to takeover the role.

    I’m still giving Cynthia a chance as she’s coming into a heavy storyline and so far, she’s working with what she’s got while having to continuously multitask of creating chemistry with key characters within her storyline.

    This whole story is getting stupid. How the Hell does Sasha get arrested for “identity theft”?

    Fraud, yes. Since she did go along with the scam of pretending to be Nina’s daughter, and gained financially from that lie. Granted, Val the Bastard was behind that fraud, and he should be going to prison for it before she does…. especially as he’s already a convicted international felon.

    But – as far as we know – she used her real name, isn’t impersonating any other mortal human being known to actually exist, and thus, isn’t stealing anybody’s identity.

    There’s only one person currently committing identity theft in Port Charles, and that would be Drodd. When does he get arrested?

    While not a topic I would generally opine on, Cynthia looked absolutely stunning in that dress. However, I regret to inform you that lightning does not strike twice—must have blown the budget with the first dress, as the second go-round was an uninspired choice.

    Speaking of choices, while disappointed to see Michelle Stafford leave the role of Nina (thoroughly enjoyed having her on GH), the show hasn’t skipped a beat with Cynthia. Less impressive was their handling of Billy Miller (Drew), but I digress…. Today’s post is about a dress and shoes and Cynthia has filled them admirably!

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
