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.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
