GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Learns The Truth, Finn Is Reeling, Mike is Too Hard To Handle, Julian Sets A Trap

Courtesy/ABC

On Thanksgiving day, General Hospital aired a brand new episode … and it was chocked-full of cliffhangers that will have fans waiting on the edge of their seats till next Monday, when the next new installment of the ABC daytime drama series airs.

In story, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) who is now uber-suspicious of Kendra (Michelle Argyris), receives a visit from her as she is preparing to leave GH and go home after being poisoned. Kendra offers to bring Alexis more supplements, but Alexis tell her she will contact the distributor herself.  Kendra says the distributor only speaks Italian, and Alexis counters that she also speaks Italian.  At that point, Kendra’s plan may have gone up in smoke.  Later, Alexis has checked out of the hospital  on her own.  Neil (Joe Flanigan) is concerned for her, and bumps into Julian (Willam deVry) and it is Julian who says he saw Kendra with the supplement jar retrieving it from the garbage.  The two men look concerned.

Next, we see Kendra visiting her brother, Kiefer’s grave where she places flowers on it, and tells him she promises to make Alexis pay for killing him.  However, Alexis has followed her to the gravesite.  Once Kendra walks away, Alexis goes to the grave, lifts up the flowers and is shocked when she sees Kiefer’s name on the headstone.  Then from behind, Kendra smashes Alexis in the head with a rock.

Julian is ready to snuff Brad (Parry Shen) out of his and his son, Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) life once and for all, and he cuts a wire in Brad’s car.  Problem is, everyone assumed Lucas would be working on Thanksgiving at the hospital.  So first, Brad lets Michael (Chad Duelle) take Wiley to the Corinthos family Thanksgiving,  and tells Michael he does not want to attend, because of Carly (Laura Wright) and the family’s issue with him visiting Nelle (Chloe Lanier) in prison.  Next, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) tells Lucas to go home – that she got his shift covered by Terry.  Lucas goes home to confront Brad.  He tells his husband, to please tell him what he is keeping from him.

At the Corinthos home, Mike (Max Gail) comes to Thanksgiving dinner from Turning Woods.  When he comes inside he is confused, wondering when his own parents are coming.  Carly tells him that his parents left him with them to take care of him for Thanksgiving.  Later, Mike is holding baby Donna, which scares Michael, Carly and Sonny (Maurice Benard).  When Carly is able to get the baby in to her hands, Mike loses his temper and gets upset and pushes Sonny right into the Thanksgiving food, which falls to the floor.  Sonny can’t seem to calm Mike down and tells Carly he needs to take his father back to Turning Woods where they can take care of him. Sonny is devastated.

At Anna’s (Finola Hughes), Finn (Michael Easton) comes upon the letter Hayden wrote for him, when Violet asks for her doll, which is inside her bag.  Alone, Finn opens the letter and is heartbroken, and shook, when he reads that Hayden is in serious trouble and had to leave town to protect Violet. She tells Finn she knows he will take good care of their daughter.  Finn is reduced to tears, trying to cope with what is in front of him.

So, what did you think of these four cliffhangers? What do you think will happen with Brad, Lucas and the car that Julian tampered with?  Will this be the end of Mike as his condition continues to spiral downward? Will Neil or Julian save Alexis from Kendra? What will Finn’s next move be?  Will he tell Violet that her mother is gone? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

And yet the baby switch story is still going just like I had hoped for back when it began. The show does have alot of interesting things going for it in my opinion.

Alexis is an idiot to have followed Kendra alone. She makes the most idiotic choices for a smart woman. She has no common sense. I am very disappointed that Julian is going to the dark side. I don’t want him with Alexis but I want him to be the good man he was with Kim.

Julian is a good man until he faces a moral crisis.

It simply isn’t realistic that Alexis would never have heard the name Kendra Bauer before, given all the chaos caused by her abusive asshole brother and their psychotic parents. I know Kendra’s father got himself killed in the middle of the hospital when he tried to “avenge” his worthless son. Don’t remember if the mother also got killed off, but she was just as crazy. One might think that if Kendra was smart enough to change her name, she would have also been smart enough to go down the same doomed road as the rest of her family. Oh well… she’s back with Kiefer and her daddy now, right here in Hell!

In all the episodes that Alexis was in the hospital, we didn’t get one scene of Kristina or Molly checking in on her? Neil, Julian, TJ, Monica (and Kendra) all did. This is one mini-storyline they should wrap up quickly.

The old Julian has returned. Something tells me he’s not going to get the result he initially intended.

Mark Teschner continues to find amazing children. Baby Donna’s smiling was so sweet. Wiley is adorable. Aiden, Charlotte (and now Violet) exhibit good acting skills at very young ages.

The children have more talented than some of the adults. Violet is a sweetheart.

For them to take Hayden out again is totally ridiculous, Rebecca is a talented actress and has so much more chemistry with Micheal Easton than Fionah Hughes. Just makes me sad to see her leave again.

Im sick and tried of the brad lucas story! Its been dragged out too long now! Time to move on g.h. writers!

The gay couple story or the baby swap story?

Steve

Hope she meant the baby swap. I’m actually glad they are showing the Brad and Lucas side of the story. When the swap first happened it was Michael oriented. Then Willow/Shiloh. Now, they’ll finish off with the dads.

The show is finally giving Carnes a time to shine. Lucas is a legacy character (despite of his bio parents) with connections to the canvas. Great reconnect scene with Brook Lynn last week. Contrast with the sad – yet funny – Brad and Liesl scene. Man up – pat pat.

The Alexis story is a total fail.
What was the purpose for it ?
It was filler to fill air-time because
Frank/writers can’t create a story that is of worth,
it’s mainly on Frank.
Frank needs to go, it’s past his time.
He should have been let go 4 years ago.

Hey, su…
You may be right—-could there be another alternative for this elabore attempt to murder Alexis? Perhaps, it’s to get Alexis and Julian back together again. He da man!! The hero?

Shay
Shay

Oh, GOD FORBID, CeeCeeGirl!!!!! I cannot imagine anything more banal than Alexis and Julian going at it again and again and again…nonstop! Please, noooooooo! JUST. NO!!!!!!!!!!

Celia
Celia

LOL, Shay…..the thought of Alexis and Julian together gives me hives. It’s just that there has been too much of Julian popping up amidst Alexis’ “travails” lately. I think the theme is going in that direction. I pray I am wrong. Brook Lynn seems perfect for Julian.LOL.
I actually like the semi-sedate-getting-to-know-you kind of relationship with Neil.
I don’t think I’m ready for round TWO of the soooo passe’ amorous misfits hitting my screen ( and the sheets). I have come to accept Alexis, as she is now—sans Julian. If we do not ‘connect’ again before Christmas: Happy Holidays, to you and yours and to everyone on these sites— Buone Feste, bell’amica—

Shay
Shay

Same to you, CeeCee, and also best wishes to my fellow December “Birthday Girl!” In terms of Alexis, I think you know I shall never “accept” the woman and her many personal shortcomings…especially when it is in reference to her endless examples of ill-fated intercourse with twisted misters! I still believe there is something dark and sinister lurking in Neil’s persona, hence the so-far-sedate scenario of their prospective pairing is flashing warning lights for me—remember Alexis doesn’t “do normal!”…Where Julian is concerned, well, been there, done that! No need for a reprise of their usual antics…I couldn’t take it and neither could the carpeting on the GH sets. (Although I could easily envision a yuletide nookie scene where the two of them are having a “mistletoe moment” which goes too far and they are caught by the Christmas tree doing the dirty as their impressionable grandchildren descend the stairs to see what Santa has brought them…totally plausible notion given their previous “interruptus imbroglio” with Sam and Patrick whilst “babysitting” little Danny. Remember that one?? Lol…

Celia
Celia

Thank you, ma belle—Happy Bday to you, as well.
I have missed so much of GH, Shay…..I find myself lost. Why is Griffin back? —-happy to see him but does his reappearance have anthing to do with Franco’s surgery? Perhaps, he is Nna’s true son and not ” et tu Brute’ with the hair. Not only does Peter sport a Roman “do”, he also has the heart of Brutus.
Then, there’s the mystery of the codicil—oy vey!!
Alexis and Julian are so stale to me, I pay no attention to their individual story or what happens to them—-same old caca ‘kinda’ stinks? Oops– sorry?
I only visit these sites when I get a ‘ding’ —a reply…
I have been so busy—-I apologize for taking my time. Again—-peace, joy and ❤️

Shay
Shay

No explanation required, CeeCeeGirl! After leaving a final Thanksgiving eve post to you on the “Anna” thread, I took off for the holiday weekend and my following “Birthday Week”…I’m only now getting back in the groove myself. Whilst I have no idea why Griffin has made a return visit to Port Charles, it’s still nice to see him briefly resurface, even if his presence only serves as yet another reminder how remiss the GH writers were when they failed to make him Duke and Anna’s son…he had all the physical and personal qualities which would have lent themselves to a truly believable and magical GH storyline at a time when Anna could have found deep comfort in the notion that a tangible part of Duke and her great love for him had remained here on earth in the form of a beautiful offspring. To add insult to that injury, Peter was thereafter presented as her Faison-spawned product in one of the worst characters/scenarios ever to be introduced to Port Charles…where, oh where, are those too convenient baby/DNA-switch soap stories when one is so sorely needed??? (I still maintain that “Roman Pete” is Alex’s mistake…NOT Anna’s!!!) Is it any wonder that our once-vibrant Divine Devane has gone a bit doolally over the past year??? May 2020 give her equally perfect vision when it comes to discovering once and for all that Cesar’s b@$+@rd was not borne of her own body! As far as an Alexis and Julian reunion??? The less said the better….I’ve already expressed my piece on that subject…I’m taking a “wait-and-see” attitude as to whether this over-sexed pair gets another round of rumpy-pumpy! LOL!!!

Celia
Celia

Hi, Shaybelle,
Glad you figured out I meant Anna; not Nina.
Yup—all Peter needs is a circlet of laurel-leaves around his head—and, voila’—Brute or Giulio Cesare, himself.
I remember when we both agreed that Peter could very well be Alex’s son; not Anna’s.
Different topic-LOL…..
I look forward to this new forged-alliance, as it were, between Nina and Ava—-take down the Cassidine “boys” a peg or two—yet, there are children involved—Charlotte and Spencer….that’s never a good thing.
Soapland is such a magical place, Shay—-it would be so soapesque to resurrect Kiki. Ava is obviously haunted by guilt—I would love to see her rid herself of the demons inhabiting her mind and soul. I truly appreciate both the actress and “Ava”.
Believe it or not—I am getting more and more comfortable with nuNina. She has succeeded in making Nina her own—almost a completely different role; yet, I’m not turned off by the character’s transformation.
Soon, Shay….❤️

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee…Since I’m still of the mind that Kiki was never Ava’s real daughter, I think it would be fascinating to see her—or an appropriate doppelganger/long-lost twin—return to Port Charles to throw a monkeywrench into the new Nina/Ava alliance. This would be an especially timely development if our originally plausible theory that Kiki was actually Nina’s stolen child were to be confirmed…can you just imagine that shocking secret revealed amidst the current pairing of Ava and Nina as “partners in crime” united against the Cassadines??? I know that notion has fallen by the wayside with all the “musical missing baby mysteries” that have befallen Nina in recent months, but none has been ultimately satisfying…why not a re-do??? Whilst I’m still personally less than enamored of both characters, I’d rather see these two crazy ladies incorporating their insane schemes together as opposed to chasing their next male conquests…neither has much success in that particular pursuit, albeit Ava is much more an accomplished maneater than Nina shall ever hope to be! Stay tuned…

Celia
Celia

Hey, Shay,
You are aware of how valiantly I fought for Kiki to be Nina’s—-I’ve never stopped—a twin would be the thing—it can still happen, if the writers’ imagination is put to work.
I am definitely enamored of Maura, as I was of Michelle—( still am)—girl-crush?? LOL.
Inasmuch as I am slowly developing a liking for nuNina, she does not have the seductress nuance—that sexy, in-your-face, je ne sais quoi sassiness only Ava and Ex-Nina possess—it’s innate–comes naturally. I call it the Cerces/Lorelei/Sucubus syndrome. Can’t be manufactured—
I want Valentin gone—why does he never get caught? I fast forward his scenes!!
He’s a terrible father, husband and a worse linguist. His French is pathetique. He insists on calling Charlotte ‘petit’ instead of ‘petite’. I grind my teeth each time he tries to mimic French.
For once, I would love to see these women stay put—without a man—yet, there’s sort of an urgency on soaps to pair people up. Look at Lulu—the ink was barely dry on the divorce papers, yet there she was, rubbing noses with what’s-his-name.
PS and NB—-great retort, Shay—as astute as ever!! I do believe that “Sunny” as “Corchoran” are very litigious, n’est-ce pas? ‘Tis an insult to one’s intelligence to dare think we would not figure it out. Some people are stuck in their infancy. Mark comes to mind—
Good tidings —-peace on earth –‘Tis the season—-I’m swamped, Shay—-we are moving—-so, I may not always get the chance to respond.
Talk soon!!❤️ Enjoy!!

Shay
Shay

No need to explain, CeeCee…this year is coming to a close so fast and furiously, that I’m simply trying to hold on for dear life, too…I am sooo far behind that I’m just finishing up my Christmas cards as I type this post…LOL. I cannot imagine having to move an entire household during the holidays…oh, boy! God bless your new hearth and abode…not too far from your beloved Hamptons homebase, I hope! At any rate, I think the return of a “Kiki-esque” character, ala Hayley Erin, would be a superb way to kick off 2020 in Port Charles…there was too much left unsaid and unexplored where the original character was concerned. If the actress is indeed available for a guest—or more permanent—stint, she would be a refreshing return addition to the GH canvas. As for Valentin, I agree he has become tedious…’tis a shame for JPS, who does his best with the material he’s been given as of late, but unless there is a juicy Cassadine-centric storyline in the pipeline for next year, then he needs to vamoose, even if only on temporary basis! (Maybe he could go abroad for an intensive, immersive French language course…LOL!) In terms of Ava and Nina remaining “manless” for awhile, I concur it would be a top-notch notion..I know this is a soap which means pairings are all important, but the irrepressible rush to rumba for too many of the females on the show borders on the ridiculous…Just-divorced Lulu definitely should have had some down time to spend with her children and both Nina and Ava—not to mention, ALEXIS!—-could do with some self-care and contemplation before beginning their hasty bed-hopping routines all over again. Anyway, thanks for the wise, insightful words…ditto and right back at ya! In the event this is my last message to you before Christmas, have a safe, sane and lovely holiday timeout with your beautiful family! That’s what this season is really all about!!! Alla prossima, mia amica!

Celia

Hey, Shay….I’m afraid we will be leaving the Hamptons. My husband and his brother are partnering—–starting their own preactice in Smithtown, NY—-too much of a drive; so we’re building a new home in Nissequogue/St James area, NY—-However, I will let the kids finish the school year—thank you for your lovely best wishes!!
I agree with you about Stuart—such a seasoned, skilled actor in the role of a character whom we now feel the need to merely tolerate. Valentin seems to display a dual personality, at times—-Furthemore, I feel for Nina. She does love Valentin; yet, is torn between good over evil. WOW!! What a transformation—-original Nina would have never had such ethical issues. Now, she is struggling—Oh, what to do; what to do!!
As far as taking any kind of linguistic course—I appreciate different languages spoken on soaps—BUT, speak it perfectly. So many of these actors butcher English grammar, it’s sad to see them do the same to foreign tongues. Simply do not attempt to speak another language if one does not know the rudiments of said language’s grammar. Charlotte is female, therefore “petit” becomes “petite”, where the “t” is stressed….hurts my eardrums. LOL.
What do you think about the tension between Nikolas and Ava? Is it just moi? I feel it building/budding to an explosive climax. Pardon the pun!! Well, not really—-intentional. LOL.
As I said earlier, I like Alexis, albeit your antipathy is steadfastly alive—double LOL.
I am waiting to see where she takes her “love”—simply curious—-don’t really care for a repeat performance, or the path her story takes. This entire poisoning idiocy is just that!! Dumb and pointless. Perhaps, I’m missing something?
Peter is a dud—both as an actor and character. Cannot stand this guy—-nothing redeeming about him. It’s also tedious to watch Anna attempting to use her wiles as a cunning WSB agent—-nah!! Not working for me. So, what will she do once she uncovers his evil deeds? Turn him in? Arrest him? The only way is for Peter to be an imposter……I would go so far as to hope he isn’t even Alex’s son—just a criminal with an agenda!!
Well, keep the faith, bellezza!!
Merry Xmas for the umpteenth time?LOL.—-to one and all!!
Forgive the typos, if any!!❤️

Shay

“Imposter Pete!!!” I LOVE it, CeeCeeGirl!….Absolutely brilliant idea! We can cancel this character and all the misery he has brought to Port Charles in one fell swoop. Totally works for me…and many others, one might suspect!!! (‘Twould also immediately emancipate Anna from her morose mood as she tosses that loser/not-son in the slammer where he belongs and propel her to move on from this sorriest of storylines…it is SO time for her to regain that pre-Pete “Divine Devane” mojo!) As for Ava, I tend to see physical “tension” whenever she sidles up to any GH male…that’s simply her calling card…LOL! However, I should imagine that a sexual redux with Prince Nicky is in the near offing…too much unfinished “business” there! (She also would’ve made a very reliable “partner”—both in bed and crime—for Valentin…of course, now that she’s in cahoots with the still-lovesick Nina, that is less likely of a viable future possibility.) In terms of Valentin himself, I’ve simply found him to be a huge letdown as he has been written from the very beginning…a much more evil and unrepentant creature—ala Helena—in the mold by which he was originally foreshadowed would have been oh-so-delicious and the uber-talented Stuart could have played that role to the hilt! But Val is what he is…so be it!!! (He still needs to brush up on his French….hah!) By the way, I absolutely agree about the lack of proper English usage on American television..it makes me cringe…that’s probably one of the reasons I prefer British productions these days, although I’ve caught more than a few whopping, sloppy errors on some Beebs’ programs as of late, too…..Guess their more recent emphasis on all matters “PC” has taken precedence over their once-longstanding tradition of impeccably high standards! Alas, just another sad sign of the times…Anyway, I’m glad to hear that you will not be venturing too far afoot from your heavenly home base…same county, different zipcode, in other words, switching to one charming NY locale from another! (Although it will be the Hamptons loss…you are such a refreshing example of an intelligent, thoughtful, down-to-earth woman with an abundance of common sense and generous spirit …quite the opposite of the internationally-ingrained image of vapid, vain-glorious vixens and viragos who infamously inhabit your well-publicized patch!) At any rate, I’m still racing toward the holidays…much left to do…but I thought I’d take a break to reply to your much-appreciated post. Hope you get the “White Christmas” we are going to be denied in my area since we’re looking at sunny, moderate temps for the coming week…not exactly conducive to yuletide cheer as far as I’m concerned, but hey, it doesn’t change the focus upon “the reason for the season” or the pleasures of celebrating with friends and family…must enjoy and be thankful regardless of my own disappointment regarding the prospect of a snow-less scenario! Merry Christmas just the same, mia amica! “See” you in “2020!”

P.S. I meant to add to my below comments that if a magical GH experience is what you are seeking, check back to Anna and Duke’s wedding…it was so romantic and steeped in Scottish tradition. I haven’t seen it in decades, yet the memory is indelibly etched in my my mind of the dashing groom and beautiful bride!

Having just gone through an eerily similar situation with an uncle of mine on Thanksgiving just the other day, and with my father beginning to show signs of slipping as he recently turned 71 years old, those Mike and Sonny scenes really hit home for me. My god, did they hit home.

GH continues to do such a spot on job of telling the story of Alzheimer’s. The writing, the dialogue, the production, and of course the heartbreaking performances of Max Gail and Maurice Benard. I’ve praised them many times in the past and will continue to do so. Max can’t win enough Emmys in my book for how phenomenal he’s been in this role and this storyline. It’s an acting master class every time he’s on screen.

Sorry about that, Dan. It is incredibly stunning how patients in their forties can be afflicted by this debilitating malady.

Happy Holidays!!

I cannot stand Alexis. T.J. comes to her like a true gentleman and asks Alexis’s permission to marry her daughter and she gives some bullshit talk about Molly wouldnt want this to be done this way and blah, blah, blah! Molly can be as liberal and different as she wants to be and I’m sure T.J. already knows that about her but what girl wouldnt be satisfied to be marrying a man who has enough respect to ask for permission! What parent would have comfort and respect knowing your daughter is marring an upstanding good man! F Alexis! I say, R.I.P. rats, Alexis should have been lying in that dumpster!

Oh, I hear you, jaybird! Alexis is one of the most annoying, sanctimonious and off-putting characters ever to land in Port Charles!

Regardless of that crushing disappointment, I still wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

No anger here, Sunny! Have you never heard of the concept of “loving to loathe” certain soap opera characters??? I actually utterly enjoy and relish thinking up new ways to gleefully describe my immense disdain for Alexis, of whom, incidentally, I consider to be is an absolutely awful female role model with her trainwreck of a life, especially where men are concerned! That’s my thing where Alexis is concerned, who, along with a few other GH characters, I would be thrilled to the throes of ecstasy to see the back of….What’s more, it’s those soap fans who defend their favorite fictional characters beyond all reason and become unhinged when someone else criticizes them who should be the true cause for alarm, as they seem to have a less than firm grasp upon reality. In terms of Timmm and jaybird, they are both really fun—albeit outspoken—guys, but I can honestly say that I’ve never sensed anger from reading their cheeky posts…Love ‘em!!!!

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.
