GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis’ Life Further Implodes, Olivia Vows Revenge, Nina’s About to Get the Truth

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it excellent performances, and continues to be the show in recent months that has given us the best cliffhangers week after week.

In story, Alexis, who has now been taken into police custody for attacking Franco, (but instead ends up injecting Dante with a syringe filled with an overdose of lidocaine), is with Mac who tries to make her see how her drinking has completely trashed her life, and on her birthday no less!  Mac says she’ll be charged with murder if Dante dies; even though Alexis says she was only trying to protect Sam from Franco.

Olivia, who is beside herself heads to General Hospital, where she learns Dante is in critical condition and that Alexis is the one who gave him the injection which put him in this state.  When she finds out more details of what happened to her son, she is even more confused as to why Dante would run-in to save Franco.

Now in the chapel, Robert joins her and tries to console her.  Ned shows up and Robert tells him to leave after figuring out from Olivia that Alexis and Ned slept together.  After praying for Dante, Olivia leaves the chapel and outside of it, swears she will get revenge on Alexis and make her pay for having an affair with her husband and now almost killing her son!

Back at the police station, Mac believes Alexis’ life crumbled to pieces because of Julian Jerome, and she is now throwing her life away, again.  Mac gets a call from the hospital where he learns that Dante will survive, but he tells Alexis she is being charged with aggravated assault and attempted murder.

Monica learns from Ned and Tracy what happened while she was at a medical conference and how Tracy framed Alexis.  Monica urges Tracy to hightail it out of the country.  It’s the only way Ned will forgive her for what she did.  Later, a police officer shows up with a warrant for Tracy, but Monica says Tracy is not at the Q’s and has left the country.

At the Metro Court following the Sasha/Jackie interview, Nina, who is reeling that Sasha had the other half of the necklace she believes was with her true bio-daughter, puts the two pieces together and Carly’s cover-up begins to become exposed.  Michael tells Nina that Avery found the necklace in the woods near the family cabin. He then shares that the last person to stay at the cabin, as far as he knows, was Nelle when she kidnapped Wiley.   Then, Valentin reminds everyone that Phyllis took Nina’s baby to Florida; which prompts Michael to share that Nelle was from Florida. Carly is really squirming now.   Nina wonders if Nelle is her daughter then.  Jax says he cannot lie to her anymore and needs to tell her the truth! Carly is busted, unless Jax says something else?  We won’t know till Monday’s episode!

Elsewhere, Phyllis takes Sonny (aka Mike) to get checked out at the clinic for his mental state.  Sonny is very manic and feels there is nothing wrong with him and he is on top of the world.  The doctor checks the blood work Sonny had previously and reveals there was a trace of lithium in it, leading to the conclusion that “Mike” has bipolar disorder.  Phyllis, who shares that she did a bad thing in her lifetime (the Nina baby ordeal) that she regrets, wants “Mike” to take the pill.  He apparently does, but with a smile. Did he swallow the pill?

Throughout the show, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), Lisa LoCicero, (Olivia) Jane Elliot (Tracy), Cynthia Watros (Nina) and Maurice Benard (Sonny) all had moments that kept us riveted to the episode.

So, what do you think Olivia will do to Alexis?  Will Nina learn the whole truth and nothing but the truth from Jax?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

All in for vengeful Olivia! You don’t scorn a girl from Bensonhurst and get away with it. (Okay, maybe Ava got away with what she did to Connie, but I digress). Hopefully Tracy will be cleared to return home for another annual visit at the end of the year. At that point, she can meet her great grandchild. One down, one to go… the Nina’s daughter reveal is finally unraveling. Next up, time for Heinrich to get his comeuppance. Really nice to see Carly squirm for a bit. She’s been on that high horse for quite a while. With Sonny… Read more »

Nancy/Alexis is giving us a powerful performance. She is bringing it home. Franco- he had zero control with 1st tumor and with the 2nd- I don’t believe that’s his problem, it’s the mind/exchange that’s the problem this time. As for that the heart necklace junk- well, I’d luv to put that heart where the sun doesn’t shine and get it out of my face. I’m waiting for the Cassadine, that Helena feared, to become who and what he is a true Cassisine and that Valentin will give me earthshaking chaos suspense. Dante’s story is junk- the writers could have done… Read more »

I agree with most of what you said except I think it would be more fun for him to find Carly and Jason together. They are all over each other as it is. Who does Sonny run to whenever he has a hangnail?

hi Violet 🙂 Hope you are doing well.

Carly and Jason, I dunno- they don’t have the
hot sex thing between them, in my opinion.

But- whichever, I’d like to have Carly with someone doing the nasty..

I always wanted Ava and Sonny as a couple.
Them as a couple would make for some good stories and Sonny, in ways, would have met his match (old Ava version).

Longtime couples are beyond boring, nothing new or different just ho-hum.

I want Valentin to come alive!!!
I need a true blood Cassisine wreaking havoc
I miss the spellbinding hanging on the edge Cassisines..

I agree with you with practically everything you stated: Valentin -agree ; Sonny catching Carly- agree ; irritating Sam – doubly agree . Oh wait a minute- I said practically ; I’m changing that to everything that you said! Good job!

Olivia on the warpath? That maniac Alexis finally getting the wakeup call? I’m looking forward to some fun. Carly being the center of Nina’s baby drama? Not so much. And I’ll be sorry if/when Chase is revealed as Finn’s son. Chase is so adorable when he’s around his big bro; he can barely stop smiling. It’s bad enough that smug, self-righteous Michael still punishes him for protecting Wiley.

And maybe Sasha is actually Jackie’s daughter which would make for Chase and Sasha to be half siblings, which is yet another reason for them to not have done anything other than fake make out on the couch to make Willow weep. I didn’t watch GH/Jackie back in the day, but I’m assuming there is a batch of time (9 or 10 months at least) after she left Port Charles before she ever met Finn or Gregory. I don’t think we have ever figured out Sasha’s DNA…

I feel sorry for Alexis. For such a smart woman, she sure can cause herself a lot of grief! Between her family and love affairs, etc. her drinking obviously making everything worse, she can’t win for losing. With her very big heart, I hope Olivia can give her a break. It’s not like Alexis and Ned set out to have this big night of romance. They were comiserating while drinking which led from bad to worse. Ned was hurt because Olivia left with Scorpio to see Dante, after his own daughter had just had her throat slit. He was trying… Read more »

Forgive Alexis? Violet, are you married? If your husband cheated on you would you forgive him? I hope not! Once a cheater, always.

I agree, Timmm. Ned didn’t even seem that sorry about it. He wanted Olivia to forgive, forget, and sweep it under the rug all in the same breath. Let him stew for a few months…then dump him.

Would you ,Timmm , want to be forgiven if you cheated? It may be a Soap; however , it ‘s a reality question.

Timmm

I wouldnt expect to be forgiven. Once you lose trust in your partner, what is left? What is true, what is a lie? No, walk away, suck it up and know that who ever you cheated on will be a better person by you making this decision.

It’s not right to have Tracy return without Luke..
It’s only good if Luke is back with her.
I’d rather have Luke return than Tracy-

But- the writers don’t write what I want lol.

That’s the defense Alexis is going with. I get that will probably get her off, but it shouldn’t because Sam wasn’t in any danger from Franco. Sam and Alexis were actually at Franco’s workplace to go in on Liz at her workplace. Plus Alexis was already drunk when they went to GH. I kind of want them to do the unpredictable and throw Alexis in jail and charge her.

I think Nancy was phenomenal, especially in the scenes with John where she was crying over what Alexis did to Dante. It was intense! Lisa really brings it home as Olivia struggles with her growing rage. Can’t wait to see what unravels there. I wouldn’t mind if the whole “Nelle is Nina’s daughter” story had a final shocking turn and Nelle really WASN’T Nina’s daughter; that she stole the necklace from someone. It’s a story that is getting long in the tooth. It feels like all the pieces GH wants aren’t in place yet, so they keep dragging it out.… Read more »

Rodd,
Now that Nina is realizing she has a grandson, I hope they will do a DNA with her and Wylie so as we don’t have to drag this on for months.

Lock Alexis away with Blackie! Liv and Robert can fall in love. She seems more his type than Ned. Ned needs a new love. Maybe a new character with a corporate motive. What about Jessica Collins?

Jax is THE man!

Either Sonny is going to know a nurse at this hospital or someone will recognize him as the “Godfather of PC!” I hope he finds Morgan but it is a new actor.

Seems inevitable now that Nina knows about Nelle. With Nelle still playing dead, Nina would feel like she has to somehow “confirm” this story with Phyllis, even though Phyllis previously said that she didn’t have detailed information about the “adoptive” parents of Nina’s child, other than them being from Florida. In any case, Nina will probably go looking for Phyllis, hoping she’s got some piece of useful information that will give her a definitive answer, and she will walk into the bar and see Sonny at work….. and then because she’s pissed off at Carly, probably keep that information to… Read more »

I heard what you said may happen, Nina spotting Sonny and keeping it to herself. They say Sonny will stay away from PC for some time. Probably showing up just in time to spoil Cyrus’s evil takeover! GH keeps a much better pace with their stories compared to Y&R!

Olivia on the warpath? This should be good! She is going to be one very angry mother.

GH was on-fire last week! Loved the necklace reveal with Nina, Carly, Ava, Nicholas, Michael, etc. Also, Tracy fleeing the country! Alexis arrested (yay–she can write her “memoirs” in prison, heh)! What a great week!! I normally don’t care much for Sonny, but I like his storyline with amnesia and the bar-family (Phyllis and husband).

I want G.H.to rid itself of the Mob.! I don’t care about Sonny , Carly , nor Jason ; however , I like the amnesia storyline because it shows another side of him.

I am really enjoying the show again but I wish the storyline about the “half hearts” would just go away and hoping Nelle does not come back. Nelle’s storyline is old and I am not feeling her drama again.

I want Nelle back ; yet, I feel that the writers should bring it to an end with heavy fallout for Carly and Jax.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
