GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Accepts Julian's Proposal, Patrick Fears The Worst Has Happened To Robin, Sam Admits Her Feelings To Jason!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Let’s start by recapping two of our favorite lines on Monday’s episode of General Hospital!  Just before hitting the red carpet at the Nutcracker Gala, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) says to Franco (Roger Howarth):  “Hi. Who are you wearing  … and do they know you are discreating their brand?”  This is followed up by Franco, who whispers into Elizabeth’s (Rebecca Herbst) ear while he and Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) are posing for a photo opp, and Liz despite herself  joins them:  “See, all you have to do is show up with two people that everybody hates more than you and you end up looking like Malala.”  While those were some more lighthearted moments, there was plenty of drama going on and even a marriage proposal!

Courtesy/ABC

Patrick (Jason Thompson), Anna (Finola Hughes) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) are shown a poloraid photo no less, of what looks to be a very dead Robin (Kimberly McCullough) by Jerry Jacks (Sebastian Roche).  After he explains to the Scorpios and Dr. Drake how Helena (Constance Towers) held Robin to find away to give her some sort of eternal life through her research, a duplicitious Jerry is soon surrounded by his henchmen.  After a fight with Jerry’s goons, Robert gives Patrick a gun and tells him to go search for Robin.  At the end of the episode, Patrick finds her, but we don’t know what he sees on the other side as the show fades to black.

On the couples front: in a heartfelt proposal at the Nutcracker Gala, Julian (William deVry), after getting permission from the Davis girls, asks Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) to marry him.  She answers in true Alexis-fashion, but is overwhelmed with joy and accepts Julian’s proposal telling him she has never loved a man like she has loved him.  It was nicely played by Nancy Lee Grahn and Julian Jerome, and we are sure the Julexis Army was cheering loudly.

Meanwhile inside the gala, after a tipsy Liz lashes out at Laura (Genie Francis) in front of Jason (Billy Miller), he leaves to get some air. He happens upon Sam (Kelly Monaco) also outside the gala having a drink since she was upset seeing Jason looking at Liz.   After Jason and Sam start-up a conversation, he notices she doesn’t have a ring on her finger from Patrick.   Sam says, “We mutually decided to end things.”  Jason asks, “Why?”  Sam responds, “Because I loved him, but not the way I love you.”  How will Jason respond to Sam’s admission?

Courtesy/ABC

And in a nicely played moment by Laura Wright (Carly) and Maurice Benard (Sonny), Sonny is clearly uncomfortable going with Carly to the Nutcracker gala, because he can’t dance with her while he is stuck in a wheelchair.   Carly is understanding and in touching moments tells Sonny she loves him.   She then goes to the gala and Sonny stays home.  Later, we learn something must be up with Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) when she visits Sonny, and takes  a selfie with her dad.  That moment seemed to indicate she had some ulterior motive for doing that. What is Kristina up to?

The episode also featured Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) in a Santa disguise to get close to Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), and Michael (Chad Duell) realizing from key intel from Monica that Sabrina must be lying about the patenity of her baby! Additionally, while the gala continued on, Paul (Richard Burgi) and Ava (Maura West), who can’t seem to keep their hands off of each other are getting busy with one another in a hotel room.

So, what was your favorite moment from Monday’s episode?  Did you like the major Julexis scenes?  Sonny and Carly? Jason and Sam? Patrick, Anna, and Robert against Jerry?  Liz being tipsy?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I really don’t like this.. Married couples get back burned because they are boring and hard to write for outside of love problems.. The vivid Julian and Alexis will be grandma and grandma lusty sex and excitement gone.. Married couples are written one way= boring. We have to wait the usual 3 months to their break up / same old stuff from the 80’s…. J&S are a horrible match for GH.. They are grandma’s writing the same scripts from the 80’s.. GH needs young blood writers, men in their 30’s, modern guys that can write 21st century media/stories.. GH needs… Read more »

Again, your facts are way off. Big shock. LOL. Nearly every one of those stories you mentioned were penned by Josh Griffith. He handed over a MESS of a show to the ladies, and they were just starting to make it really good when Pratt took over. Similarly they were handed an unwatchable steaming pile from Carlivati and have been faced with the DAUNTING, Hurculean task of turning GH around. Take your own advice Su….a) It’s only a soap b) If you don’t like it, don’t watch.

Hi Dylan.. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
well,
I went by the dates.. 2013 to 2015

Passanante was named head writer of The Young and the Restless, working alongside Shelly Altman. Passanante’s tenure was from December 23, 2013 to March 18, 2015,

To be fair not all those stories you mentioned were J&S, many of them were Josh G. but cling to the hope if the ratings for GH continue to drop no doubt a change in head writers will soon follow. I know it is my Christmas soap wish that Pratt is lure away from Y&R so he can inflict his brand of writing on a soap, by your own words needs his ‘manly’ touch.

Regardless of who wrote what, your point is well taken, the stories were horrific! I will give Jean and Shelly credit on writing Julian’s proposal. It was sweet the way he asked all of Alexis’s daughters for permission and then popped the question. We hadnt seen ANY of that with Ron. su0000, have a Merry Christmas!

J&S Interview with MF- The first time since 2002 that a GH head writing team is women. When asked if they feel their take on the GH canvas will be different because they are women, Altman responded: “I don’t necessarily. I think each individual writer brings his or her own experience to the table. Jean and I are both women and we are both mothers. You can’t help but have some of that influence your ideas, your thoughts. We will approach everything from a woman’s sensibility because we are women.” Again; ”We will approach everything from a woman’s sensibility because… Read more »

Actually, THAT is GH. GH has been revitalized and restored in its long history mainly by women! First of all, as the show was nearing cancellation, Gloria Monty came in and turned it around and made it number one. Then in 1993, two women named Wendy Riche and Claire Labine came in and turned the show into the hallmark, the Gold Standard for what soaps were, are, and could and should be. The ratings soared, it was critically praised, and won Emmy’s galore. After that, Phelps came in, and love her or hate her, she helmed the show for over… Read more »

Dylan, thank you for saving me from having to write a history lesson for Su000. I don’t understand the disdain for female writers. They are the reason that GH became the cultural institution it did. J&S are trying to restore that tradition and salvage what had become an unwatchable macho mess. It was Gloria Monty who created the template for action/adventure in daytime. A woman did this. Not a man. A woman!

Yes. GH has had women writers, and they were above snooze
No histor need simply observation.
The few other women writers brought on action, climactic build up and suspenseful endings, and GH was entertaining..
J&S are far writing anything entertaining. And far from the women writers before them on GH.
I said nothing of other women writers, I am not concerned about them they are not writing, now.

su0000

hey DYLAN..
Jean and Shelly together are nowhere near to being as good as ”Gloria Monty ”.
No comparison. Gloria was in a class of her own but J&S can never be as Gloria Monty .
J&S stink writing for GH.. YAWN ..

(I would give a piece of gold to Gloria Monty back) but- not going to happen.

Tony Geary is daytime royalty and he couldnt put Gloria Monty on a high enough shelve in regards to her talent and place in daytime history so that there says enough for me. Its not the gender, its the talent!

I did like Guzza, he mixed it up, np yawning..
GH has some great male writers..
Thing is.. I believe J&S are the only female HW left from the 20th century, and they are a bad match for GH..

RME at the speed Sam went from begging Patrick to not end it to pretending her engagement ended my “mutual agreement.” Also how can she spend a year around a person, feel nothing for them and then suddenly declare to be in love with him. She loves a memory, not a man–and certainly not the man Jason is now

I just HATE that we’re recycling old fan wars and storylines. And the energy between Jason & Sam is SO low, that the only chemistry created is the kind that will induce sleep.

Anne

ITA about Sam and Patrick. She changed almost instantaneously. Writing like this cheapens the show. It’s like they are stringing together scenes with no continuity.

Lucy D.

That’s what I think. It’s like the childhood game of telephone. Someone writes one day, someone writes the next day and no one knows what the other is doing.

There is something seriously wrong with this show.

Ces

I agree Lucy. She doesn’t even know this Jason and they have limited chemistry. I don’t know if it was the whole year he spent with Liz or the fact that Kelly M. seems half asleep in most her scenes, but the two together are making me sleepy too.
Kelly M. had way more energy & chemistry with Jason T. IMHO

Lucy D.
Guest
Lucy D.

On another board someone named them Sambien. That’s so true.
There’s no chemistry, no energy–no engagement.

And I know they can’t be blissful forever, but I hope for a while they can take on life’s challenges together, the way Dante and Lulu used to…..

I loved the Julexis stuff. The love of a good woman has redeemed a man. How refreshing and inspiring. It was great to see the Scorpio clan together, if a little familiar. FH and TR are so good. I guesS Sabrina is in trouble now that Monica spilled the beans about the baby being due in a few weeks. That SL is so OOC and whack. aNother budding family I enjoy is Tracy and Paul. Not crazy about her being played. Again. Julian asking the Davis Girls if he can marry their mother was brill. Kristina’s moment with Sonny was… Read more »

They don’t fit, so you must acquit! For me, Alexis and Julian just don’t jive as a couple. William deFry is a pretty boy and clearly spends a lot of time making himself look younger. Nancy Lee Grahn is ten years older than he is and she looks her age. Do not call me an ageist,–Nancy looks terrific, but she looks her age, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, the ten year disparity in their ages looks to be close to fifteen years due to the TLC William gives to his body and his face (he’s so vain,… Read more »

You have it exactly right, even if I don’t harbor the same amount of animosity for Julian that you do. (Mine is solely directed at that over-sexed slave to her libido, Alexis!)

One other note Harry…how is Alexis a hypocrite? First and foremost, she is and always has been a great mom. Whether it was pressing her daughters to get a great education…akwsys emphasizing the importance of school…completely there for Christina when she was attacked by her boyfriend…always a sholulder to lean on when any of her daughters is upset…she’s all maternal. As for “bad boys” every woman on GH has slept wifh one or more, married or dated one or more…including Anna and Laura. The only reason Alexis is FINALLY with Juluan is because for now at least, he really is,… Read more »

Compare him to Roger Howarth…they’re about the same age but Roger has a much more youtful appearance. So does Tyler (NIC)…Sean Kanan, Steve Burton, etc. All these guys are in their forties and look younger…facially…than William DeVry. I have no problem seeing DeVry as… Read more »

Am I the only one who misses Ron Carlivati? This show is so blah without him. I just want to see the end of Jason Thompson’s episodes and then I’ll probably stop watching. The only thing that would keep me watching is if Lucas and Brad had a front burner story, which I know will never happen.

Ehhhh…sorry, Monday’s show could have been excellent but missed the mark. Unlike Su00, I do not blame the writers and have come to the realization that it’s not the current writer’s fault anymore than it was Ron’s fault. Case in point–the scene with the reuniting Scorpio family “hath all too short a lease.” I felt like something was missing. Sure enough there was a beautifully poignant and sweet scene which transpired between Robert and Anna yet Mr. Varni opted to cut that fan loving scene in order to give that repulsively repugnant Ava and Paul more air time.

I agree that Laura should have her own story but until then Im enjoying her presence. She’s one of the few sensible, grounded people on the show and true to character. She was always the voice of reason…the comfortin force-source that Lucky, Nicolas and Elizabeth went to.The show needs that and she does it so well. And she looks gorgeous! She’s lost weight and seems to have shed years as well compared to a previous return.

Whoever thinks the ratings are up isn’t reading them right. Are they up from when Ron was fired? Yes. But the last ratings were down almost 400,000 from last December when Ron was writing. As I said the other day the latest ratings were down a lot from the week before and the other 3 soaps were up. That was the week it was everyone’s turn to yell at Liz. I’m not worried GH is going to get canceled because ABC has no clue what to do about daytime. But I am worried about the show. It’s turning back into… Read more »

The mob stories drove the ratings into the basement and yet the show seems hell bent on bringing the mob (which Ron wisely back-burnered) back to the forefront, GH’s biggest weakness is its inability to adapt — it gets stuck in a groove for years at a time with a certain formula (love on the run stories, campy spy stories, mob stories) NEVER once realizing the reason any of those stories worked the first time was the love story they were built around. Oh and if the new head-writers are bringing a woman’s point of view to the show, then… Read more »

I agree. I assume women are still a big part of soaps’ audience an d I find GH to be not very supportive of them.

Carly has become a harpie shrew–all to protect Jason’s privates from Liz. Sam’s talent as a PI is dressing inappropriately, getting Spinelli to do something illegal and having Jason rescue her.

Totally agree about the dialogue with Monica & Carly I guess their characters have been invaded also.

What a crass move especially after Liz all but blackmailed her into keeping quiet with the threat that people would find out about Nikolas’ attempt on Hayden’s life. Laura had the decency to apologize to both Liz and Sam about keeping quiet and finally Liz had the decency to apologize to Laura. She finally apologized to someone for her reprehensible actions over the last few months! And I don’t mean her teary “Sorrys” to Jason that are designed to manipulate him not apologize.

Liz played a good game to catch her man.. Woman are natorious for their man traping games lol / fact and some will throw everyone under the bus to get their man.. ahaa! All IS FARE IN LOVE AND WAR.. Liz lost a battle but not the war, not yet.. Laura was all up holyer than thou in their faces yet the evil in her came out, she lied and joined the deceiving game.. Apologizing does not erase what she did. nope. (by the way.. Laura has lied and deceived to get her man.. and she threw her son Nicolas… Read more »

Liz played an unfair and disgusting game to catch her man. She stacked the deck which is nothing more than cheating. I keep hearing on these sites how its okay to play games, to lie and cheat to get what you want. Because everyone does it, especially women it seems. Well I do not subscribe to that theory and I do not believe all is fair in Love and War. I don’t think you do deserve to win without integrity. I know some do but its a hollow victory in my opinion. In any case, I will get off my… Read more »

Welcome back, CeeCeeGirl! Of course, you’ve been missed! (If you’ve any doubt, just check out this thread…..LOL! Seems like “deja vu all over again,” eh? R.I.P. Yogi!) At any rate, Merry Christmas! Yes, it does seem like there has been a lovely turnaround on the notion of Alexis and her boy toy, Julian….at least by some. Maybe it’s the increasingly absurd storyline we’ve been subjected to with Ms. Davis and her ridiculous, overtly sexual antics with her mismatched mate that are finally bringing certain viewers around to our way of thinking….I can only say “welcome to the club!” As for… Read more »

@tatiana. I absolutely love and agree with your post. You have expressed my thoughts a hundred times better. Liz’s warped thinking; what made Laura leave her baby ( something I did not know); Liz’s manipulation of Jason, which is such a foreign concept to me etc. Everything you say is en pointe…..from A, meaning Ava….whose original storyline was so compelling and engaging, has now diverted to being Paul’s sexually perverted toy. Ugh!!!!…..to Z, that is, my addition of a comment on Johnny Zaccara, whose presence makes me smile, but, also adds question to the weakness of his storyline, nonetheless. I… Read more »

It is interesting that someone takes every opportunity to bash the new writers of GH, but fails to realize the previous stories under Carlivati were considered campy and uneven. Stories went on forever. The ratings were dropping for quite a while, which brought about Carlivati’s firing. Maybe another nail in the coffin was provided by Anthony Geary’s dislike for RC. The new writers are trying to do their job and I don’t think they should be blamed for stories they inherited from the previous writer(s) at Y&R. Romance has and ALWAYS will be a staple of soaps, with a little… Read more »

What RC did not do; RC did not break up Dante & Lulu and give us this awful love triangle. J&S put them there because that’s what they wanted. RC did not make Lulu off tilt. RC did not give us Paul licking all over Ava’s body. ish.. RC did not give Ava custody of Avery. RC did not give us a bipolar Morgan, perhaps he was just really messed up, we’ll never know.. J&S gave him bipolarism RC did not make Carlos Sabrina baby daddy. RC did not make Jax and Scorpio look like ol’ mellowed down buddies. RC… Read more »

I am not here to root for either writing team as I do think GH has been pretty bad for months and is not getting any better in my opinion. But Su, many of the story points mentioned above were given to us by RC. They were conceived and began airing during his writing regime. The day to day material of the new writing team began in mid October or so and most of these stories began earlier than that. It takes more than a month or two to change the direction and trajectory of a story line and of… Read more »

I would like to take this opportunity to wish Mr. Fairman and his staff a much needed ‘thank you’ for giving us the opportunity to offer and exchange thoughts and yes, criticism without insulting others….especially at this Holy time. Sorry for almost forgetting you, sir…..it would have come to me eventually….too many screaming kids and chaos.

General Hospital

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
