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…… Read more »

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.

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.

The gay couple story or the baby swap story?

Steve
Guest

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?

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
Guest

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Guest

@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”… Read more »

Guest

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Hey, Shay….I’m afraid we will be leaving the Hamptons.

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… Read more »

“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!… Read more »

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.

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.

Sorry about that, Dan. It is incredibly stunning how patients in their forties can be afflicted by this debilitating malady.
And, yes—-Max’s acting is superb. If I didn’t know better, I’d think he was truly in the throes of Alzheimer’s.
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,… Read more »

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???

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
