Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital certainly had a lot going on.  First, let’s start with wonderfully acted scenes between Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis)  and Ashley Jones (Parker), as two strong women who from the first looks of it, are about to take it each other down, but in the end find some resolution and understanding.  For Alexis, she gets clued in and learns how she can handle the situation with her daughter’s sexual identify better than she has.

At a cafe’ near the university in which Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) was suspended, Parker tells Alexis that she only wanted to be a friend to Kristina, and that Kristina’s version of the situation might be skewed.  She also tells Alexis that Kristina fears being gay will alienate Alexis and Sonny  (Marice Benard).  Alexis explains that her husband Julian (William deVry) has a gay son, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) and they came to an understanding and ultimately Julian’s acceptance.   Parker asks Alexis to just to make sure that matter what Kristina decides about herself and her sexuality, that Alexis will love her unconditially.   Alexis thanks Parker for enlighting her, and for putting up with her accusations.  Kristina calls Parker after Alexis leaves, and Parker informs her that her mother came to see her.  Kristina looks panicked.

Elsewhere, it’s a very bad day for Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher)!  He returns to Wyndemere where he finds Curtis (Donnell Turner) moving in! Hayden (Rebecca Budig) reminds Nikolas that she is calling all the shots now, and Curtis lets Nikolas know he has safeguarded the evidence that Shawn Butler (Sean Blakemore) is innocent, and that all roads lead to Nikolas having Hayden shot.  Curtis tells the dark prince has no problem having the investigation of the case re-opened if he doesn’t comply to what he and Hayden say.

And as that is going down, Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Billy Miller) discuss the fact that she cannot believe that Nikolas would have Hayden shot to keep the secret from her that “Jake” was really Jason!  A livid Sam takes off and heads to Wydemere where she rips into Nikolas, and tells him she is going to call the cops on him! As Nikolas tries to take the phone out of Sam’s hands, Jason busts through the door and beats up Nikolas! Hayden and Curtis also come upon the intense confrontation.

Later alone, an emotional Sam tells Jason that since Nikolas already stole a year from them she doesn’t want to lose anymore time with him.   The du0 make love for the first time since Jason returned to Port Charles!  Meanwhile, Hayden and Nikolas get into bed together post-Nikolas beat down, and each grab a knife out of their nightstands and put it by their side of the bed.

And last but not least, Ava (Maura) gets a bloody surprise in her bed when she finds what appears to be bloodied blackbird under the sheets! Is Sonny responsible for this threat as it appears … or could it be Paul (Richard Burgi), Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), or someone else?

WOW! This was my favorite episode of the year and was highly entertaining from start to finish with a little bit of everything you could ask for in an hour. I couldn’t find a single lackluster scene in this episode and the storylines that I consider to be lackluster were not featured. BRAVO!

Jake

Alexis/Parker scenes were well written and played out!

I know, Jake…..AND,
WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!!!! This is the Alexis for whom I was waiting!!!! Today’s episode with Kristina brought me to my knees…..something which had never happened for me .
The emotions, the words, her mother’s urgency to see to her daughter’s happiness and mental well-being, just moved me. I hope Alexis keeps this up. Loved her sweater, too.

Cele Che almost had tears!What great acting looks like!Do you think they will keep Ashley Jones?Would be a shame to lift us up and then let us down!

CeeCee

@jackie meixer.
I agree…I enjoyed that, as well…very emotional.
As far as Ashley Jones staying on? I do believe she will soon have a baby. So, she may come back after she gives birth. I hope she does come back. I like her.

Glad to see Sam and Jason, albeit a little ‘cave-mannish’, LOL ( is that ok to say?) was refreshing after no excitement between them. Sam looked spectacular in her skivvies.
Nikolas deserved everything he got, and more. How dare he lay his hands on a woman so violently….boorish!!
But, what’s up with Jason? Does anyone else think something went awry during his brain surgery and is manifesting itself now?

Soaphound
Soaphound

CeeCee: I do think Jason’s dark side is more hair-trigger than before, but that may make him more fascinating (but also more like Sonny…which may not be a good thing). Isn’t it amazing what brain surgeries at GH can do? Between Franco, Jason, and Hayden/Rachel, they never know what they’re gonna get!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Right? We should all end up GH if one of us needs a personality change.
Unfortunately, I was not familiar with Jason Morgan before his disappearance; just for a couple of weeks……….only what I have read on these sites and a lttle Utube history.
I do wonder, though, Soaphound; was Carly in the habit of coming between Sam and Jason?….. Or is this just a feeling I am getting? Hmmmmm, I wonder if Carly will present a problem…..first Miss Lizzie, now, Carly……poor Sonny…LOL.

I loved the scenes with Alexis and Parker. I hope they have more to do together down the road.

I LOVED Jason kicking azz! One of the FEW times Billy Miller seems awake is when he is being physical! Oh, and speaking of being physical, he and Sam were hot, hot, hot together ,devouring each other! Loved it!

People complain about Nick’s dark side BUT I wish that he would contact Starvos or Stephan and have Curtis killed. What a leech! GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!

I just LOVED Hayden and Nick going to bed each holding a knife! “Love is in the Air!”

“Blackbird singing in the dead of night!” Goodnight Ava!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yeah, Aria. There was more touchy feely kind of communication….better than discourse. But, I agree, I did not see sparks. Now, Maxie and Nathan? That’s a horse of a different color.
Nikolas?…. well….we must remember to be kind. But, what you said! LOL.

CeeCee

Oh, my gosh and golly gee, my Timmmy. That is so funny. Each with a knife….going to bed…..love is in the air.

I agree with everything you said Timmm! Nick is really getting a beating; surprised he still has a face left.

Patrick
Patrick

it just so rankles me… that Nicholas is being “blackmailed” by Hayden and Curtis

I am officially OVER Hayden

just how long can they drag this out ?

I get that she was brought to Port Charles to “help” Ric blackmail “Jake”
now she’s blackmailing Nicholas… with Shawn confessing from prison… that their was another shooter … Nicholas needs to figure this out?

does Hayden really have the goods on Nicholas ?

now that the cats out of the bag… once again… all of Port Charles is against Nicholas …. AGAIN

he was so well written in all of 2015… thank you for being one of the few… PS: along with Laura Wright… just how much FUN it is to watch Nicholas… dark side

I wish they would even the playing field and give Nicholas some staying power… and enervate him … as we know he can…

once again.. he’s being “beaten” by Jason… and blackmailed by Hayden ???

where’s the fun for Nicholas

Shay
Shay

@Timmm….Given how many familiar and unfamiliar faces that have crashed at Wyndemere as of late, Nik should just be over and done with it already and open a B&B. Let Laura run the place…..it will give her something to do besides cracking Helena’s mysterious code.

Timmm
Timmm

Oh Shay, Genie Francis has to be pulling her hair out! [In a rocking chair with a brush!] What a waste of her talent. People get offended here but I love Genie but what can she do without Luke?

Nick should open one of those medieval dinner theater’s where there is a murder and dinner guests have to guess who did it. Funny thing or should I say the twist, the person is actually dead EVERY TIME! Where is DICKtective Falconeri when you need him!

Jason and Sam I don’t know , I just don’t see their spark, or their connection, I was never a fan of jason but like the idea of what jake could’ve been but now that the character knows who he is its like he’s gone back to being selfriteous soon he’ll go back to hanging out with the same people, I. E Carly , sonny and Sam and how they will go around acting like they are always in the right no matter what . They’ll pump these 4 characters at the expense of others. Also not liking this dark nikolas, he’s become dark with no soul therefore he looks like a cartoonish villian . The episode I like more was the prior day episode especially when Tracy was going into surgery and her family was there beside her, Ned, Dillon, Michael and Monica , it was so great seeing so many Quatermaines in one scene together, wish their was miore scenes like that..

Patrick
Patrick

ie: the LOVE THEM THE BEST Quartermainia

they need to bring back… somehow… a strong vivacious with comedic timing… a new Emily… just to round out this Fantastic fam

I wonder what Amber Tamblyn is doing these days?

Natalia Livingston is also a keeper

ps: I’m not looking forward to seeing “Jason and Sam Forever” consummate their relationship…

I just don’t get it… I’m not going to grandstand and beg for Jason and Liz.. because i’m over that ; seriously ??? to watch Liz accept and lower her standards for being 2nd … leftovers ? I think not

Liz and Franco
Liz and Griffin
Liz and Nicholas
Liz and Ric
Liz and heck…. Scotty

she’s HOT

OK

PS: at the very least… I hope they throw in dear sweet Alice… to check in on Tracy

rebecca1
rebecca1

I agree Patrick. Alice’s absence is glaringly obvious, especially when Tracy’s life was on the balance. Surely the budget could afford Alice a bedside visit? Hopefully she’ll be waiting at the door to welcome Ms. Tracy home.

A surprisingly good episode. The Alexis and Parker scenes had some of the best acting I’ve seen in a while. While I hate the idea of wasting the brilliant Ashley Jones on whiny Kristina, I hope she sticks around. Would love to see her spar with Sonny. Jason’s pounding on Nikolas was downright thrilling (and this from someone who generally hates violence). Maybe it’s because Billy Miller would be sexy just reading a menu. One quibble…why do they keep chopping up his gorgeous hair?

jackie meixner
jackie meixner

Ah yes soaphound.Ashley Jones is brilliant and Sonny vs Parker would be epic!As much as I enjoyed Nik getting the crap beat out of him,Alexis vs Parker was the best of the day!

I dunno, I just dunno..
GH has become PSA ordinated..
Like leave it Beaver; a PSA show..
I do not like it, it’s lame..

(( PSA = public service announcements ..

I am really really wanting my loved GH back 🙁

Rose

I really liked Nancy and Ashley’s scenes. Love to see this side of Alexis again (as well as the mom nursing “tactic” in the courtroom). Am going to enjoy this brief win-win since Julian is going back on his no-more-crime-boss promise. And Ashley as Parker was a new pleasant surprise.

Seems comas related to brains can be tricky things. Looks like Jason still retains his hair-like instincts when it comes to physical confrontation. If remember right, didn’t Helena program retaining that part of a Jason that into her “soldier” boy at one time? Makes you wonder if all the bad stuff is really out of Franco.

I like Jason and Sam together. Sorta reminds me of Liam finally remembering Steffy as he is getting his memory back, no matter how many sparks he can have with a Quinn or Liz. Just don’t want selfish (and understandably so under the circumstances) Carly to bring him back into Sonny’s orbit with this obsession with Carlos.

Nik is a bit of a mystery to me. When did he turn the corner? Is it a little leftover trauma from what happened to Spencer in the fire? I can almost get him trying to get control of the Q’s company. But can’t figure why he put the hit on Hayden. Definitely not his style, nor a Cassadine way of ridding themselves of a nuisance.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Hi Rose…

I agree with you regarding this side of Alexis, yet I feel that it only completes her as a fully-fleshed out character. For me it was more realistic to see her in a relationship, complete with passion; we’ve always seen her maternal side, her practical side, fierce lawyer side, etc. It’s comparable to the different roles we all have in life. I meant to comment on something you said regarding her on another post, that you were glad they were getting back to this side of her, or something to that effect. I agreed with that too, but I felt like they emphasized her relationship with Julian in the throes of newness…when attraction and the physical side is very intense at the beginning. Then they rightly transitioned them into a couple which shares domesticity, family and a bond that still stands after the initial newness has worn off.

As for Nic, I think they’ve shown a side of him that might have been present but which he fought against. He and Alexis lived side by side with the darker side of the Cassadines and each strived to be better. Nicolas was always so controlled, so polite, yet conflicted about his family, fearing he could be like his father. I was even surprised when he betrayed Lucky. But I think losing Emily, Courtney, Liz, Britt…suffering one loss after another, being duped by Britt and also Rebecca (remember her? Emily’s twin who deceived him too), dealing with Stavros, Helena…I think the good in Nicolas gave into his dark side out of frustration, loss, despair, his happiness always cut short.

Lol, wuth ALL that said putting out a hit on Hayden seemed extreme. Either it’s all I said, or he really is under some kind of Helena’ witchy ways…

Rose
Rose

Rebecca 1…Seems the darker side can always be triggered no matter how deep it’s buried. Finally saw the new StarWars and it happened there, too. I’m also wondering about Helena’s “witchy” ways. Could the “spell” have something to do with the portrait she left Nik?

Ashland Cripton (a.k.a. Connor)
Ashland Cripton (a.k.a. Connor)

So true @Rebecca1… Regarding the whole Nikolas and his dark side debacle. I see some fans on message boards are not pleased to see Nikolas go into this dark of a direction. But, I think that it is easy to at the very least some of us to remember that, even in real-life… we all have our own reasons to show our darker shades. Everybody has a darker side to them, it is just whether or not we all ourselves as our own individuals, decides to actually show it to the real world or not. And we fear showing the “shades of gray” sometimes… So much that is because we fear of pure shame and judgement.

As for with Nikolas, lets face it… He has been through a lot, over the years. Especially with being a vital part of The Cassadine Family / The Cassadine Clan. Emily’s death… I truly believe was the hardest on him. I can remember seeing Tyler Christopher in those scenes, as I believe his alter ego “Connor Bishop”, at the time… In denial while finding and holding Emily’s dead body. Tyler did AMAZING in those scenes. I personally think and or believe that those have been his bestest of scenes to date.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Hi Ashland…

I barely remember Connor. Was he a lookalike Nic that raped Emily?

Yes, I agree with you. We all have si many different

rebecca1
rebecca1

Hey Rose…I haven’t seen the new Star Wars. Was it good? I’m catching up on so much great TV these days…binge watched Ray Donovan, The Borgias, The Walking Dead, The Originals…I’m now on to Outlanders and looking forward to the return of Game of Thrones. It’s interesting because one of the reasons we like daytime soaps is the continuity…the characters we come to know because they’re for the most part a constant…lol…people we can always count on “being there.” In that same vein, when you binge a show you can watch as many episodes as you want back to back, day after day, so the involvement in the characters is comparable. Downfall is primetime, no matter how good doesn’t have the shelf life of soaps. If you havent seen any or some of these shows I recommend them all! And talk about a dark side…zombies, werewolves, vampires, murderers for hire and warring Kings.

So yes, lil Nic seems to have fallen. As far as the portrait I still think, as some others have, that Helena is alive and she’s letting him know she wasn’t taken out by the poison tea she’s seen drinking in the picture. Only other thing I can think of is she’s telling him she knew he’d eventually succumb to his inner dark Cassadine side and knew the attempt he’d make on her. Revenge awaits whether she’s dead or alive….

Lol. Maybe Helena is walking around with a Hayden mask!. Ahem. Kidding. Ewww. :/

Rose
Rose

Rebecca1…When Hayden was giving the portrait a closer look didn’t she see something before Nik put it aside? I do think when it comes to Helena, something concerning Nik is still in play. I’ve seen most of the shows you mentioned. At least we know The Borgias came before the Cassidine’s. But Helena and family could have been inspired and learned a lot from them.

Your right about all,of these shows having a constant character base. We are just lucky our soaps go on year afte year (fingers crossed). Gotta go…New 2nd season of Outlander is just starting.

nfnfngrebecca1

Hi Rose
Well I know that the tea in the pic represented the poisoned tea…I’m not sure what Rebecca saw. Was it a reflection of another person in the background? Or maybe someone posted that suggestion ezrlier…don’t recall.

I LOVED Borgias! Here’s another example of quality shows being canceled due to low ratings” while trashy shows ala some reality or lowbrow Jerry Springer type shows go on for years…

I’m not up to the second season of Outlander. Hope your second season premiere was good!

Was anybody else puzzled by the spark that led to Sam and Jason hitting the sheets?

“Seeing you nearly murder my cousin was so hot — make love to me in your luxury effiency apartment now, Jason!”

LOL @ Luxury efficiency. That set is awful! And while the recent outdoor scenes are a nice change of pace, is a chain link fence the best we can do

There’s no spark with Jason & Sam as much as they’ve been re- united , I’m sorry there’s just no really chemistry between them. I found myself looking forward to Jason and Liz scene in the past it’s sad its over. I don’t believe Jason can just turn off his feeling for her. Leading up to Sam and Jason re uniting seemed pushed.
I did love the show before they reunited.

maddiehayes
maddiehayes

ITA, Jason&Sam seem to be all about the physical, and Jake&Liz were more romantic. Sam even said today that Jason isn’t much for words. Maybe not with HER, but with Liz he was downright poetic! “I’ve memorized your entire face” “I may not have a ring, but I have my heart and I have my love for you” .. he was VERY forthcoming about his feelings for LIZ. Ah well, as Patrick says, forget it. GH wants their “ride or die” couple, Jasam, maybe that’s the pairing most of the audience wants, too. But just slapping them together isn’t the way to go. It seems like he’s forgotten all about how he felt for Liz, and his feelings were HUGE. But now we’re supposed to believe he really wasn’t that much in love with her he was just saying all those beautiful things? And we’re supposed to like him now? 😮

Patrick
Patrick

i’ll put out their… a never say never

if it’s the last we see of the forced pairing… it truly is about spark… and yes.. the moments that just cement and put a stamp on how stunning Jason and Liz …are in this current generation had all the components and requisite for supercouple… I don’t know if that sits well with Billy Miller.. if he wanted to be the superhero… ala Jason… so be it.. take ms. Nancy Drew with…

you posted.. the part … and I remember it well

when Jason is with Liz… “I may not have a ring,…” etc… etc..

that just did it for me

I read in a past SOD issue.. how… enamored it seemed… J and S , as head writers… were patting themselves on the back as it were.. as if giving the whole shebang… of how the JaSam fans were stood up.. and aghast that it took this long

hence.. I just do not want to think… that writing vs. character interpretation… really MUST go hand in hand… to REEL magic

and.. they don’t see it with Liz?

I have to dispense.. that the GH writers… duh goes to FV… for “how dare he” hedge and drag out Rebecca Herbst much deserved multi year contract

she … thank you posters… who know… how she generates with each and every cast member on that canvas… what a tour de force… force of nature

i’ll patiently wait… Liz return… ie: she will be off screen for a bit.. and it’s all systems ON FIRE

there’s still much to love about GH

ie: Ned is back… for Olivia
ie: Julian is full steam ahead… with Nina

I so hope much more is on the horizon… with Sabrina return… even with Michael

let’s hope Kiki is on the mend… every one is gaga over John Deluca as a potential love interest

WE WANT MORE !!!! Mac and Felicia !!!!

last but certainly the best… Quartermania… I openly weep for Ms. Tracy… dang … Wally Kurth and Jane Elliott… superb

maddiehayes
maddiehayes

so true, Patrick. Never really liked Jason&Sam, although I rooted for them during the McBam nonsense (being a John&Natalie, OLTL fan, lol. I hated what RC did to them, never really giving them any happiness until Steve Burton decided to leave, then RC showed, in a dream sequence, how their story SHOULD have gone down. It made me sad and mad. Jasam have fans, LOTS of them, and GH just spat on them.) I’m not a huge Liason fan, but I do love Elizabeth. And I liked her pairing with Jake. He was so demonstrative and affectionate, lightyears away from Jason! Now he’s back with Sam, and he’s reverted to being “The Borg”. So I suppose he’s just gonna go back to being Jason Morgan, the enforcer, and all our hopes that he might reconnect with the Quartermaines are out the window. But as you said, Ned is back – yay! – and I too wish for more Mac & Felicia. I simply cannot root for anyone mob-related. Except Diane and Spinelli.

Ari
Ari

that’s because Becky is so good at making the man opposite her shine. I really give her all the credit for the amazing scenes she and Billy shared. And I still say, had the story truly been about keeping Jake and Elizabeth as a couple, it would have been one of the strongest couples to hit GH in a long time. But they were never meant to be.

Ces

Is this the end of Parker? Hope GH continues to tell Kristina’s story.

I’m so disappointed in how, Nicholas, is being written

I’ve grown weary of Hayden… ??? all the drama lent to Hayden, for????

Is Nicholas going to – Live – with the threats ???

won’t the reveal of who Rachel IS free Nicholas from his marriage vows ???

argh! it seems Nicholas doesn’t stand a chance

as GH is continuing to prop Jason and even Hayden… over Nicholas character

as intriguing as I think Hayden and Curtis to be….

it’s just not boding and sitting well with me… how argh! emasculated Nicholas is being written

HE IS AN EMMY Nominee for a reason! his character pulled out all the stops… and Manned up his character with so much intrigue

OK I know majority of fans… want the dear sweet Nicholas.. and sweet Liz…

isn’t it just time…. to layer and just KNOW… how… complex Tyler Christopher and Rebecca Herbst REEL

they are a magnetic BFF and that whole production should be heralding these two

Rose
Rose

Patrick…re your other comment about the Jason/Liz/Sam triangle and who would be the couple. I was glad the signing of Rebecca was finally resolved because I like Liz as part of GH. But because of the lies about his true identity, I was not on team Liz for Jason. Since GH is part of ABC Disney, you have to hope “someday her prince will come.” Plus I like Sam. Can’t help but notice how the soaps copy each other. B&B is doing a variation of the same thing with the Liam/ Quinn story.

Letemeatc8ke

Best show I’ve seen in a verry long time!
Jason & Sam = duds! boring! How can he just so easily forget how Liz helped and supported him initially in the hospital. He’s just put her out of his mind? Really?!?!
Hayden & Nikolas = great scene and buildup to a layered relationship. Nikolas has depth now, like most people. No more white horses to ride in on. Yaaaaay!
Kristina & Parker & Alexis = totally realistic. All of it. I hope Ashley returns and her wife gets a job at GH. Wouldn’t that be great?! Wait, besides Monica are there other women doctors? Albrecht doesn’t count.
Carly & Jason = here we go again. So sick of the mob stuff but clearly complaining about it does no good so I just fast forward through those scenes.
Ava = my ninja!!!!
Nina = my ride/die chick!!! These two ladies bring the heat whenever they are on the screen from way back to the the “As the world turn” and “Y & R” days, respectively.
Franco & Liz = not a physically attractive couple. Wouldn’t enjoy the pairing.
Finn = keep his sense of humor!!!
Quartermaines = of all the head injuries Jason has had his memory of his life as a Q never returns??? But he remembers life with Sonny as a henchman, silly. Please return their fun as a family back to them. Not sure which set of writers set out to destroy them and break them down and break the Q’s up but it was a sad day.
Molly = has grown into a beautiful young lady with quite the acting chops.
Other storilines, I guess i don’t care about enough to mention.

For those who thought that no sparks flew between Sam and Jason must have been watching a different show. Kudos to Kelly.. I thought that Billy Miller looked great.. I also liked the darker edge to Jason. Billy Miller has been a big improvement for the character of Jason. I only hope that this means more involvement with Sonny.

The Kristina being gay story is sorta stupid..
Nobody cares if some is gay, no big deal..
Only time gay anything is a matter of subject is when it comes to church and state.

Sam and Jason doing the nasty was more than nasty LOL … I fely need to vomit!
I had to FF through every scene to please my stomach/ horrible YUCK..

It has nice to get a break from Morgan’s therapy stuff.
All the other stuff going on like Nathan and Maxie or the magazine is FF …
I like Ava and Julian and better yet with Sonny and Anna working together..
Nikolas and Haden looks promising.
Anything Tracy is never FF , looking forward to more Tracy.

yah`know.. I have been FFing through 70%, everyday.. That is sad 🙁

Krissy gay gives the actress something to do and Alexis and Parker scenes. Not a shocking issue to be gay anymore.

Sammy looked hot baby!

I wish Morgan would go away like Walkmans!

Sana baby! [Sonny and Anna!]

Tracy is pure gold!

hi Timmm..
hey, Krissy could be a serial killer, an ax murder or even a Nun..
But, for some dumb reason they believe a ”she is gay” story would be intriguing/ so old fashioned!

Anyways, ok then who will they pair her with? Parker is married and too old for her, so who?
Now, where does the dumb story go from here?

Ashland Cripton (a.k.a. Connor)

They could level the playing field out a little bit, and (eventually) have Kristina figure and or find out that she is “bisexual”. I personally don’t like a world full of seemingly un-ended labels. I mean, we all are who we are. And if really any of us as our own individuals ever has had or does have a problem with the way anybody else is… That is usually us as our own individual’s problem, and not theirs. We all live in a twisted world, more than not. And I am really and truly not trying to become a Negative Nancy in any sense when I say that. Just speaking the truth, no matter how harsh it may be sometimes. Now, back to what they could do with the Kristina Corinthos-Davis character… They could have her figuring out that it is okay to settle with the best of both worlds. Not one, or the other. But its hard because if you want to be with somebody and just only one person for the rest of your life… more likely than not, you cannot have the best of BOTH worlds. That would have to involve some sort and or kind of a twisted and convoluted three-way relationship. Or Kristina setlles to have a part in being a part of an open relationship. Maybe they bring Professor Parker and her wife (and any other of their family members) onto the Port Charles and / or General Hospital canvas. In some way. Maybe Parker’s wife can become a physical therapist doctor / nurse at General Hospital, itself. And then overtime, show how really strained Professor Parker’s relationship is and or may be with her wife. Tensions flare, they consider immediate divorce at first. But, they both come to the conclusion that they both still love one another. So, they both think that the best route at the particular star is to maybe still be in a relationship with one another… But, an open relationship. They both know and feel that they know who they are going to both come home to when it comes to the night times, at the very least. Professor Parker and her wife being in an open relationship, can allow both of them to explore some “fun times” with others outside of their very own respective relationship. Parker can pursue some things with Kristina, while maybe Professor Parker’s (current) wife decides to pine after… dare I say it, maybe Sonny? Because I imagine that eventually, the bottom has to drop out somewhere (yet again, like really with any and or all relationships in Life) with (both) Sonny and Carly. Carly will really not like how Sonny’s violence that still surrounds him, is affecting not only their own relationship with one ankther .. But, also, how it is and or could still be affecting their own respective son, Morgan. Morgan will always want to try and prove to his father, that he can be the Morgan that Sonny wants him… Read more »

What a fabulous episode!! I love that Nikolas’s crimes have finally been exposed. I’m hoping he’ll end up in prison for corporate espionage, fraud, blackmail and attempted murder, but I realize that probably won’t happen so I hope he’s at least forced to give ELQ back to the Quartermaines!!! The beating Jason gave Nikolas, returning ELQ to the Quartermaines and being saddled with Hayden as his wife, is barely the punishment he deserves!!

I also wish Elizabeth would be punished for covering for Nikolas in both the attempted murder of Hayden and stealing ELQ!! I think she got off too easy for what she did to Jason, Sam, Danny and all his family and friends!!! And I LOVED that Jason came to Sam’s defense and called her his wife, again!!!

The scenes with Alexis and Parker where wonderfully performed by two fabulous actresses. A sensitive topic that was beautifully written and beautifully handled by both Nancy Lee Grahn and Ashley Jones.

I thought the Ava and dead bird scene was great. Maura West certainly convinced me of Ava’s fear. But I did feel sorry for the little birdy.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED the Jasam making love scenes!!!!! Sam and Jason’s (and Kelly and Billy’s) chemistry is off the charts and sizzling HOT!!! My television was practically smoking. And I loved hearing their song being played!! Being a real life couple, it really shows in how comfortable they are with each other, clothed or unclothed. Its so beautiful to see the smoldering looks he constantly gives her and how he can’t stop touching her. If those scenes had been any hotter they would probably have been rated R. WOW!!!!!

GH has been really outstanding lately. I’m once again taping the episodes to rewatch a second time on the weekend. I had stopped doing that for a period of time and love that GH is once again producing shows that are really interesting, romantic, dramatic, current, powerful and very exciting. I look forward to each new show. I’ve been watching for 43 years and General Hospital is definitely the best soap on the air!!!

Hi maddiehayes,
I could have missed an episode but from what I recall wasn’t this the first time Jason and Sam made love? Seems like Sam’s been holding back from rushing into anything with him, physical or otherwise, even going so far as to divorce him so they could start anew. I agree though that Jason seems to have easily gotten over his love for Liz. I guess we’re supposed to assume her betrayal was too much and Sam by comparison offered honesty and a way back to his identity. That dors make sense although I’m sure that just as in the past he’ll always care for Liz in some way.

I think the writers spent too much time developing “Jake.” Given the fact it’s not Steve Burton, it was too easy to see him and still see him as Jake rather than Jason. I think Billy Miller is great and I like his character, lol, but that character just doesn’t come across as Jason for me.

Whether he comes across as Jason or Jake and putting team Liz vs team Sam aside, I think their in-bed scene had a lot of chemistry… til of course enter Carly. THAT hasn’t changed! 😉

Hi Rebecca! Yes, this was Jason&Sam’s first time having sex. I still have GH on my TV during the day, but I don’t pay much attention lately. I heard “just you and me” playing from another room and that’s how I knew there was a sex scene, lol. It seems sudden, compared to Jake and Liz, whom we saw getting closer and closer and PINING for each other before they finally had sex after several months of wanting one another but being kept apart. Correct me if I’m wrong, but did Jason ever have to “pine” for Sam? I always like a lot of pining, lol. I do not understand how finding out Liz lied to him made Jake fall out of love with her. Being angry with her, that I can understand. But they were already in love BEFORE she started lying to him. But now he’s totally over her and falling in love with Sam. But you know what? He doesn’t even act like “Jake” any more. He doesn’t say flowery, poetic things to Sam. He’s turning back into Stone Cold. And this disappoints me, because I had hoped the new Jason would be a hybrid of Jason Quartermaine and Jason Morgan. And be torn between the two. But he’s far more JM than JQ already and he doesn’t even have his memories back. Oh yes, I’m not denying Jason&Sam have great physical chemistry, and I did find Sam’s conversation with Carly to be very telling. Sam accepts Jason as he really is. Jason Morgan. But that’s not who he REALLY is though! Is he gonna be Jason Morgan forever? How sad for the Qs, especially Monica!

Hey again maddiehayes… I don’t think Jason is consciously reverting back to his Jason Morgan ways. He’s no longer “stone cold” literally speaking. I dont know if his latest head trauma was supposed to have retriggered his emotions but he’s much lighter, jokes, teases and more open to the Quartermaines. I don’t know how much you’ve seen of him because as you said you’re not watching that much these days… but it’s good you have the TV turned to it for the ratings! Lol, the show needs every viewer and more if it’s going to survive! But this new incarnation of Jason has a desire to reach out to the Q’s…he’s determined to get ELQ back in their hands. He even went so far as to sit with Tracy in the hospital. It doesn’t seem like he wants to gst back to Sonny’s business. Their friendship at this point is cordial but he doesn’t have any burning desire to temember it or even instinctively want to get involved witb mob business. I think Carly is trying to pull him back into their fold…wanting her best friend and Sonny’s savior back. As witnessed Friday she came barging in once again to ask him to talk Sonny out of going after Carlos. The old Jason wouldn’t have hesitated. This time you could see he wanted to stay put with Sam. Carly won. Again. While his killer insticts, his strength, his ability to take down anyone is still there and seemingly uncontrollable if he feels someone he cares for is in danger the mob mentality and interest is gone. I too truly hope they dont draw him back down that path. I’d love to see him finally become a Q… have that family built up again especially with the return of Ned whom I love, Dylan who I also like a lot and Monica who I hope they keep on this time! Still, not sure they can recapture the quirky humor and bickering since they killed off so many of rhem. Killing off AJ was one of their biggest mistakes. So wrong on every level. As for Sam, pining, etc,,,different situation than with Liz, He “met” Liz when he was lost and vulnerable. No sense of self. No one, not even her at the beginning knew whi he was. So yes, as two strangers bonding, new atteaction building it was more the building of a romance. And he might have been able to keep his feelings for her if as soon as she found out the truth she told him and they dealt with it together. But to be lied to every day, kept frim his wife, child and mother…that can wipe out any love. Although in rwality she was always Liz, in essence she wasn’t the person he was falling in love with, Gone was the selfless nurse who helped him, in was the selfish woman who held on to him at all costs, even keeping a child from his fathef.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart Talks on Valentin’s Downfall and Potential Rise to Power

After all his bravado, machinations and lies to keep the woman he loves, and believing he was the rightful heir to the Cassadine fortune, suddenly it all came crashing down for Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) on recent episodes of General Hospital.

Payback can be a bitch, but for Valentin; who’s past has been fraught with numerous physical and emotional tribulations since his childhood, he now finds himself at the lowest point in his life; losing Nina (Cynthia Watros) who’s now taken up with Jax (Ingo Rademacher), realizing he is the biological son of the evil Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers), and not Mikkos, and having all his best laid plans and misdeeds backfire.  (Remember, he shot and “killed” Nikolas, and set up the ruse that led Sasha to pretend she was Nina’s bio-daughter.)  Now, enter Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), who could very well hold the ticket, to Valentin’s rise to wealth and power all over again.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with James Patrick Stuart to get the lowdown on: those heavy and emotional scenes opposite Constance Towers, working with Cynthia Watros as his newest Nina, if Valentin might really kill Jax the next time he thinks about it, and what about a potential relationship between Anna (Finola Hughes) and Valentin?

Not many can play bad as good as James in this industry.  He does it so effortlessly and still brings out the humanity in the guy that has t-r-o-u-b-l-e written all over him.  Here’s what James had to share about all of Valentin’s recent dramatic moments, a tease of what’s to come, and much more.

Photo: JPI

Valentin’s world has imploded at the moment.  When did you initially find out that he was going to turn out to not be a true Cassadine heir?

JAMES:  Well, there were some clues dropped by Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) back when we did the gallery auction where Helena’s portrait went up in flames.  Frank looked at me and goes, “Hey, Jack Nicholson it up.  Have some fun!  You’re not going to be feeling pretty good for a while.”  (Laughs)  I’m like, “Oh … what are the plans?”  He pulled me aside and goes, “Yeah, you’re going to lose Nina, but you’re going to try to take over ELQ.  That’s when I started to go, “Wait a minute!  That sounds to me like Valentin’s losing his money.”  (Laughs)  With the character of Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) coming back; it’s pretty great.  I think the writing was on the wall there.  I put it out on twitter the other day.  I said, “Look what they’ve done to my boy.”  Somebody chimed in, “They gave him a storyline!” (Laughs)

Who doesn’t love to see you, James Patrick Stuart, play tortured soul?  They audience loves to see you get the opportunity to go to those depths in your performances.

JAMES:  It’s been really interesting for me.  I’ve had a lifetime of playing bad guys because the line was always shorter. (Laughs)  Everybody wants to be Tom Cruise, but the Alan Rickman’s of it all, to me, were what was so interesting.  Early on, you play one dimensional kind of twisting of the mustache, tying a woman to the train tracks.  After a while, you start to watch the truly great actors.  They start to take you on a ride.  If you’re paying attention, you start to feel what it would be like to be that damaged, and that’s why you do it.  Then you start to see the vulnerability. To me, I thought, “This is a great time in my life because I’m ready to do that.” A lot of people say, “I don’t understand.  I feel like that makes no sense. because why would I root for a person who behaves like this?” and that to me, I feel is the greatest compliment of all.

So much happened recently to Valentin in one fell swoop; he overhears Nina telling Ava (Maura West) she kissed Jax, then he envisions shooting Jax and then he is drinking himself into oblivion and he gets a “visit” from Helena!  But … the scenes between Valentin and Helena really summed up the bitter truth for him, wouldn’t you say?

JAMES:  Yes.  In the “Helena” scenes, it all basically is revealed.  It all comes down in a moment where he “sees” her.  I think he realizes with the DNA test; he’s not the person he thought he was, but he certainly had no idea that he had her blood in his veins.  The truly tragic moment of the evening is when it dawns on him that he has a daughter with Helena’s blood in her veins.  Now, he would kill her a thousand times over in that moment.  He can’t do it.  He’s fighting phantoms.  That’s the bottom below the bottom, and things got worse than he ever thought they would get.

Does Valentin have any idea then, who his biological father could be?

JAMES:  I don’t think so.  I don’t believe so.  I know I don’t.  I think once he realizes that Helena is in fact the mother, I think he’d rather just go into oblivion.  I think at that point, he’s out of answers.  Enter Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) …which is wonderful because I think the world of Nancy, and she saves the day.   Alexis basically talks him out of hurting himself, telling him to count his blessings that he is not a Cassadine, etc, which was a really sweet moment.

I assume, when you have this kind of material to play, it must be exhausting, but exhilarating at the same time?

JAMES:  I think that’s exactly right.  As an actor, I think you want to do this stuff.  Maura West and I compare notes all the time.  I think it can be kind of emotionally draining.  You do feel it, and I felt it when I had spent a lot of time with Nina and Valentin, and when the actresses changed, and we brought Cynthia Watros in.  I worked twice as hard to make sure that Cynthia’s landing was as easy as possible, and I really grew attached to the Nina and Valentin connection.  So, when Jax steps in, Cynthia’s love life means nothing to me, I don’t care about that, but Nina’s love life means a lot to me!  And it bums me out, and I don’t know that I’ll actually be watching any future love scenes between them as much as I love them both!  I have a deep attachment to the Valentin connection to Nina.  So, the lines get burred because we just play these characters so long.

What was it like sharing those tough scenes with Constance? No one can play icy, evil villainess like her … and yet in real life, she is such a gracious and kind-hearted woman.

JAMES:  In real life, Constance is such a sweetheart, and she’s so grateful to be there.  She was so ready to work, and rehearse, and play, and find the stuff, and she was great.  I’d been in scenes with her before.  Last time, we didn’t really talk to each other.  I was with the hump.  I was being Valentin pre-surgery.  It was some sort of moment in a graveyard, but this time we actually got to interact with each other.

You look at Valentin, and he’s not had the greatest life.  Do you bring his entire back-story into your performance; such as when he was deformed with the hump and how he had to literally reconstruct his life both in the physical and in emotional ways for many years?

JAMES:  Absolutely.  It’s the brokenness that he’s making choices from.  He was never truly and authentic person to begin with which is why his love fell apart.  He’s always been faking.  He’s always been putting on a show.  That’s not sustainable in matters of the heart.  It was unbelievably easy for Jax to swoop in, because it was inevitable that things were going to fall apart.  Of course, that anger and that brokenness were what lead him to want to kill Jax.  There’s no question.  He was prepared to do that.  If you look in the eyes in the fantasy sequence in the shooting, he just wanted to watch him die.  He wanted to watch the light go out in Jax’s eyes.  He was so furious … and even more tragic is … that was all he could think of, and somehow, he realized in that moment that wouldn’t work, because he’d lose his daughter.

Anna and Finn (Michael Easton) just kind of busted up.  Do you think Anna and Valentin will hookup? There is a connection and a history between the two of them whenever they seem to be in proximity of one another.

JAMES:  Personally, I’m waiting for that.  I hope so!  There is a finesse and elegance to that woman, and not only that, there is an effortless to the connection between Valentin and Anna, if one can say that about one’s own coupling.  I love to look at it!  I think we go together like a wink and a smile.  I just find that chemistry really great.  I think that’s mostly Finola, though.  She can probably have chemistry with most anything.

Valentin was going to leave Port Charles with Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez), after Nikolas revealed all and the fallout began.  Interestingly enough, it was Anna who came to Valentin’s side and tried to talk him down from fleeing with his daughter and showed such compassion for him!

JAMES:  Wasn’t that great?  She was the one who got him.  She was the one who was able to calm the beast.  There was no one else he would have listened to.  In the moment in the police station, after Charlotte had been kidnapped, and there is that moment where Anna has that bruise, I thought it was such a tender moment.  I just said, “If I kiss my finger and touch your wound?” and she’s like, “Do it.”  It was just this moment where we had been bitter rivals and enemies for so long, but he just adores her so much it’s undeniable that he sees her wounded and wants to make it better.  It’s floating out there waiting to be done.  I know that everybody knows it.  It’s just a matter of what the right away to go about in the writing would be.

Photo: JPI

So, you’ve worked opposite two acting dynamos in the role of Nina – Michelle Stafford and now, Cynthia Watros.  Was the transition difficult for you when Cynthia came to GH?

JAMES:  It wasn’t.  It was scary because Michelle Stafford wasn’t just one in a million, I mean, she is one of a kind.  The last thing in the world that I would ever want to consider doing myself was recast that actress.  So, my deal was (and I’ve said this to Cynthia) I said, “I have no control over this.  All I can do is make the landing as easy as possible for Cynthia.”  We did a lot of photoshoots together, and I had flowers waiting for her, and I did everything possible to make sure that she knew that she had a friend and that she had somebody that was going to make it as easy as possible.  It was rough because a lot of the trolls on social media were just awful to her… just brutal, and she goes, “I have thick skin.  I can take it,” and then a week later, she goes, “I’ve closed all my social media accounts!”  (Laughs)  It’s been fun to watch those guys turn around and go, “You have a really special person.”  That wedding stuff was just incredible!  She came so prepared and she knocked it out of the park.  Cynthia has been wonderful.  I love them both.  I love her the reddest, and I love Michelle the bluest, and together I love them the purplest.  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

It’s interesting that all the women in his life such as Anna and Nina, all have a soft-spot for Valentin; even though they don’t necessarily want to be with him.  These ladies are just drawn to this dysfunctional guy.

JAMES:  Don’t you think?  Is it that you want to help him, you want to fix him, you see the potential, you want to help him despite himself?  I think that’s what it is.

Courtesy/ABC

Do you think Valentin’s still going to try to win Nina back, or is that done? 

JAMES:  I don’t know.  I do know that the Valentin I know will never shake Nina, and when he loves, he loves forever.  He can be simultaneously in love with Anna whenever she’s near.  I don’t believe he ever truly got over Nina hearing his story and his brokenness and still loving him twice as hard.  Years ago, there was a moment where he said to her the stuff that he’s never said, and Michelle beautifully kissed my tears away and said, “You’re beautiful” to me.   I think in that moment his fate was sealed.  I think he knew that this was his woman forever.  So, I just don’t think that that goes away.  I think he will always carry a torch for Nina, for sure.

Do you see Valentin becoming darker and darker now that he had found out he is Helena’s offspring?

JAMES:  Well, yes and no.  I remember watching these scenes and we’ve done a lot of this stuff, and you know how easy it is to sort of go, “Let’s go dark, let’s go dark, let’s go more dark,” and after a while, I go, “You know, maybe he does learn something.  Maybe there’s hope for this guy after all.”  Of course, more bad stuff will happen to him, and he will do more bad stuff, because that’s just who he is.  A leopard can’t change his spots, and those are his survival instincts, but there are some new colors, and it’s all a direct result of all of just these horrible things that have happened to him… mostly learning that he is part Helena and he can’t undo that.

Photo: JPI

We saw that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) called and then goes to see Valentin, because she wants to sell her shares of ELQ.  So, obviously he has the potential to become really rich here which is what would give him his power back.  How do you think that will go over with the rest of the Quartermaines? (Laughs)

JAMES:  (Laughs) A lot of the Quartermaine actors have been asking me that in the hallways of General Hospital!  Isn’t that interesting how he’ll just sort of switch families? (Laughs)

Of all the people, just as Valentin’s life is in the gutter and he is at his lowest, who should show up with a sort of lifeline, Nelle! How will he go about attempting to gain control of ELQ?

JAMES:  Valentin knows he has to get the majority shares to gain a control of the company, and he has to do it fast before people see that he’s doing it.  So, that’s where Michael E. Knight (Martin Gray) has been.  He’s gallivanting the states rapidly accumulating shares.  (Laughs)

It’s been so fun seeing you and Michael Knight on-screen and on a daytime soap together again, as so many remember you as Tad Martin and Will Cortlandt on All My Children.  How has it been getting the chance to work with Michael?

JAMES:  My God, are you kidding me?  He taught me!  He’s the guy who taught me.  I didn’t know how to do this.  Nobody instinctively knows… this is a very unique art form.  It’s more Jazz than anything else, and he showed me how to do it!  Walt Willey (Ex-Jack, AMC) showed me how to do my hair, and Michael Knight taught me how to break down a script!  And, what’s so funny is he is still doing it.  In a scene on GH, when he threw in that line, “From now on, you pay in advance,” I just about fell on the floor!  I thought, “There he is!  That’s the Michael I’ve always known and loved.”

Photo: JPI

Who would have thought that you guys would get to share scenes like that again on soaps?  You just never know in this life who may be wind up back in your orbit.

JAMES:  It’s incredible.  That’s what we say all of the time… “Who would have thought?”  You could never plan something like this and that we’d still be doing it at this point.

Now with Lulu (Emme Rylan) learning that Valentin is not a Cassadine, and Nina apparently moving on to a relationship with Jax, what do you think it will mean for their relationship in raising their daughter, Charlotte?

JAMES:  I think in the short-term, Valentin’s shelved any ideas of getting her out of Charlotte’s life.  He’s sort of putting out the fires in his own personal life.  Charlotte needs a mother in her life, and he’s quite willing to share custody as they always have been.  She seems to be looking at this as an opportunity to paint him as an unfit father, and she wants full-time custody.  So, we’re back to that again.  It looks to me like Lulu is kicking Valentin while he’s down.

It was so nice to see you, and some of your GH co-stars such as: Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny) show up for Y&R’s Eric Braeden’s (Victor Newman) 40th anniversary on set celebration at CBS.  It was quite the event; speakers galore, and so many from our industry and beyond in attendance.

JAMES:  It was pretty profound.  Eric has always been kind to me.  I only worked with him on one movie, a western, called The Man Who Came Back, and that was probably 12 years ago.  He has been so complimentary of me in interviews and in his book.  So, if he does that with me, I can only imagine how many dear, dear friendships he has.  So, the fact that everybody showed up like that from the president of CBS Entertainment to local councilmen, and that they were willing to do be there for 2 hours was really proof of how much they love him.  Peter Bergman (Jack, Y&R), who I don’t even think was working that day, came in for it and spoke at the event. There was so much respect shown for Eric and what he has meant to this medium.

Your album The Apple Tree was so well-received, and everyone always loves seeing you get the opportunity to sing on General Hospital as well.  Will you continue to put out more music in 2020?

JAMES:  Yeah, that’s the plan.  I have another one that I’m working on.  I have a bunch of songs.  I’m in no rush to get it out.  Unfortunately, I lost Glen Roven, who wrote the cello part for Book of Love, passed away right after the Nurses’ Ball where I played Book of Love, which is really heartbreaking, and then, Michael Sherwood, who helped me with a number of songs on the record passed away right after The Apple Tree came out.  So, I’m a little gun-shy.  But, I’m planning on having something out by December for Christmas.

In closing, what would you say the fans should look forward to in the weeks ahead from Valentin?

JAMES: Look forward to that moment where Valentin is so low that there’s nowhere to go but up!  The comeback is going to be one for the books.

So, what do you think of how Valentin’s life hit rock bottom?  Do you think he will ever win Nina back? Do you think he will takeover ELQ? Share your thoughts on James’ recent performances and his thoughts contained in this interview via the comment section below.

General Hospital Delivers Super-Sized Promo: The Truth About Wiley To Be Revealed

This week, General Hospital is going full-tilt set to deliver the moment that fans of the show have been waiting for since back in September 2018, when on one fateful night  …

(Cliff Notes version here) Brad and Lucas’s adopted child dies, Nelle gives birth in the woods with an assist from Liesl. Brad and Nelle comes face to face on the road; the two switch babies and keep the long-held secret that Brad and Lucas are actually raising Nelle and Michael’s bio-son. Meanwhile, Willow thinks she is Wiley’s birth mother, having no idea, that her baby died with Brad.

Julian has been in on the secret, and when Brad finally revealed to Lucas the truth about Wiley, it caused their car to crash (Remember: Kendra who in the other car, who was trying to kill Alexis) which has left Lucas with only fragmented memories of that night.

Realizing everything is getting too close for comfort for the truth to come out; Brad accepts a job in Portland and is moving with Lucas and Wiley, while Nelle is selling her shares of ELQ to Valentin to get out of dodge too, so she can follow them, we think.

But in one of the best promo’s we have ever seen for a daytime drama series, as you see below; will Lucas remember and reveal the truth to Michael?
