GENERAL HOSPITAL: An Attacker Is Loose at the Q’s and the Cassadines Play Cover-Up (Promo)

Courtesy/ABC

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of General Hospital, will pick-up where Friday’s major cliffhanger left off with Ava Jerome (Maura West) being stabbed with a hook, but the question is, who is responsible?

Many fans are feeling it’s going to be revealed to be a very much alive, Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), since we never found evil Esme’s body after she went over the parapet in her fight with Ava. Still others are betting that the culprit is Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom)!

Now, in the latest promo for the ABC daytime drama series, whoever attacked Ava is on the loose, and PCPD are on the scene to investigate.

In the preview, all of the Cassadine men are looking guilty, and certainly that they know something about the crime, especially given that Spencer  (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) just found out his father, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had slept with Esme.

Then, there is the matter of the confrontation between Austin (Roger Howarth) and Mason (Nathanyael Grey) that Ava witnessed. Did Mason try to silence her?

Watch the promo below. Then weigh-in, who do you think is the one trying to end Ava’s life? Share your theories in the comment section.

Suspects include Nicholas, Spenser, and Austin’s hometown buddy but we all know it was Esme that gave the hook to Ava!

I was very impressed with this week of GH. It reminded me somewhat of the Jill Farren Phelps Era. Now say what you will about JFP, but her 11 year reign as EP of GH was remarkably successful. And some of the sweeps stories (call them stunts if you will) were epic in a time when soap budgets were more generous. The bus crashes, the disease outbreaks, the Black and White Ball, the Carnival … etc They were riveting displays of entertainment. This week was obviously not as lushly produced, no big budgets or new sets. But, veterans were used… Read more »

I think it is Ryan. Iam sure he’s blaming Ava for Esme’s absence in his miserable life right now.

Violet…I tend to think Ryan right now, too. At least a guy. If Spencer can sneak out of jail for a few hours, I’m sure Ryan could find a way out of his facility for a while as well. Something about this attack seems really personal. While Nellie and Esme are devious, I think it takes a kind of ruthlessness they don’t have. Or the physical strength. So for now Ryan.

Spencer got out of jail on a “day pass” easily because he had Uncle Victor pulling some strings to make it happen. It would be more difficult for Ryan as he’s locked in a solitary cell, is supposed to be a catatonic vegetable, and has no allies working with him (at least that we know of) now that Esme is AWOL. Ryan’s a smart psycho, so I’m not saying it’s impossible that he could have broken out, but it would have been far more difficult than what Spencer did. And I suspect if Ryan had gone to that much trouble… Read more »

Satan…Yes Ryan was probably a stretch. Could be Victor orchestrated the whole ting because Ava was becoming a liability to the Cassadines.

If it was Victor, I think his motive might be slightly different. Since he believes in some twisted version of “Cassadine Family Unity” (with him in charge, of course) then he would consider hurting Ava as a means to that end. He’s already kidnapped his own granddaughter to keep his son in line, so it would be consistent with his previous behavior. So by putting Ava in the hospital, he gets Nikolas by her side in the hospital (though Ava herself decided she didn’t want him hanging around) and because Trina was close to Ava, that brings Spencer into the… Read more »

Been thinking about my theory and others that Ryan might be the attacker, but I’d forgotten that he only has one arm and I don’t know if he’d have the strength to slam that big hook into someone the way that person did with only one hand.

She didn’t have her daughter murdered, he did it thinking that’s what she wanted. Now who done it. Nicolas, Spencer, victor, Elizabeth, Esme, nelle,Ryan, Mason,and since their bringing back the dead, Morgan. I read an article about this and they talked about how shocked we’re going to be when it’s revealed who the person is that did it. So if we’re to be shocked I’d say Nicolas or Morgan the others wouldn’t shock me. By the way send Nina and wimpy Mike back to Nixon falls permanently, his acting has really went downhill. When you’re with a talented actress you… Read more »

The success of the Jill Fred Phelps era wasn’t so much about Phelps as it was about Bob Guza, who was an excellent writer. All those storylines you referenced were his doing. There has been nothing since February 2012 which remotely compares with that quality of writing. Did Guza have his favorite characters? Sure. What writer doesn’t? Hell, look at the current writers and their attempt to make Nina the center of EVERYTHING, for example. Because I’m the Devil, and it’s in my unholy nature to think of bizarre coalitions working, I’d actually like to bring Guza back as head… Read more »

I am so sick of the old bastard uncle and what he’s doing to and not for his family. I never thought I’d feel pity for Valentin but keeping his own son’s daughter away from him, just forcing him to do his bidding is unforgivable. I hope someday we’ll see his old grey head hanging off the parapet at Windemer.

And Uncle may have had something to do with almost killing Ava. Do really like Actor Charles Shaughnessy though. He was so nice on Franny show.

Initially I thought that Victor might have had Ava “hooked” as a bizzare means of getting to his idea of “Cassadine Family Unity” with everybody circling their wagons around the wounded Ava, rhetorically speaking. But Victor would have no reason to go after Joss or Brando, so he’s not looking like a viable suspect anymore. I’m thinking it has to be the AWOL (and definitely not in Hell, yet) Esme. She has motive to attack both Ava & Joss, and – not being very mentally stable – would have attacked Brando in a panic, if she thought he saw her… Read more »

Satan…GH just had bad girl Nelle drift in and out during a dreamland hour, so it seems reasonable time to resurrect Esme. But something in me just doesn’t see her as the “hooker.” She has a small frame so it would be too big and unwieldy for her to use in a physical attack. And physical isn’t her m.o. especially if she might be pregnant. But I can’t think of any of the “other usual suspects.” Ohhhhh, the mystery continues.

I love Victor! Not because he’s a good guy, but the Cassadines have always had a dangerous element which has been sorely missing since the show lost Helena. And, I love Charles Shaughnessy. He brings an air of class and sophistication to a menacing character. I just wish they’d do more with the role. The old cat and mouse that Helena and Luke used to play comes to mind. I think he and Anna play well off each other…Either way, I hope they don’t kill him off. Too few Cassadines as it is. By the way, Helena used Spencer as… Read more »

At Sonny’s bar today, who better to have a hook like that, than a one armed man?

Satan

Except this is a typical “hay bailing hook” with a handle, as we saw when it was hanging on the wall in the Q’s boathouse (should have been in the horse stables really)

So it’s not a “Captain Hook” prosthetic type of thing that an amputee like Ryan could slip over his stump arm.

Your idea of the hay bailing hook which ordinarily would be found in a horse stable equals our boy Cody Bell , but what motives would he have for him to becoming a Serial Killer? Also the idea of Esme wielding that big hook with the strength we saw it took, as Rose says, I still can’t accept her being an attempted murderers, yet. Any more ideas?

Psychopaths like Esme can be stronger than they might appear, especially when the insanity overrides the normal mental impulse to not attack somebody bigger & stronger than yourself, that most mortals have. As far as these attacks go… the killer got Ava from behind, so she didn’t have time to react. Brando on the other horn, is ex military and obviously capable of responding to a physical attacker…. so why did he not do so here? I’m guessing the sudden rainstorm was made up as a convenient plot point, so they can say Brando slipped on wet pavement in the… Read more »

GH’s Avery Pohl on Esme’s Return: “She’s Using Her Time Wisely and Waiting For The Right Moment to Strike”

Next week, Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) is back lurking around Port Charles.  When viewers last saw Esme, she went over the parapet at Wyndemere during a showdown with Ava (Maura West).

For months, GH fans have been eagerly awaiting to see just how and when Esme would return to get revenge, or find out what she is after.  From the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, it looks like the wait is over.

In dishing with SOD on her on-screen return, Pohl shared that Esme is, “essentially on the run.”  However, she adds, “Esme is aware of the circumstances she’s put herself in.  She is aware that people are going to to be after her.  She’s not dumb.”

Just what’s in store for Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Ava, Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) now that Esme is back?

As Esme’s plan begins to reveal itself, Pohl shares: “Before she goes right back into the thick of it, she scopes things out.  She’s using her time wisely and waiting for the right moment to strike.”

So, are you glad that finally Avery Pohl is back on GH as Esme? What do you hope happens next? Who do you think is Esme’s biological mother? Do you want her to get her comeuppance from the Cassadine clan and Trina? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Shares Excerpt From Her Upcoming Memoir

In celebration of beginning her 27th year as Alexis Davis on General Hospital, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, decided to mark the occasion by revealing to her longtime fans an excerpt from her upcoming memoir due out in 2023.

Taking to her official Facebook page, Nancy shared the excerpt starting with contained some of the back-history of her soap opera alter-ego : “I play the role of Alexis Davis. I am a public defender, prosecutor, personnel injury, civil, malpractice, tax and family attorney. I am the bastard child of Mikos Cassadine who died after being thrown into his own weather machine which he designed to freeze the world. My mother, Kristen Bergman was a famous opera singer whose throat was slit by my father’s wife, Helena. Unhappy with the turn of events, I hurled my frail 75 year old stepmother off a five hundred foot parapet slamming her onto jagged rock only for her to walk away unscathed. Even more determined, I shoved her off a thousand foot cliff into the frigid subzero ocean. Helena not only survived unscathed, she apparently scaled 1000 feet up the cliff and continued to wreak havoc on Port Charles.”

Nancy closed the excerpt with some special acknowledgements: “Always so grateful to have an ongoing contract, my own parking space and people I’ve never met who come up to me regularly and tell me how much younger I look in person. It’s a gift that I have been able to and still get to do what I love to do for such a gloriously long time. I love my job the most because it is the job that gave me the security I needed to greenlight Kate as a single mother, raise her while being able to give her the things I dreamed of giving her, put her through school all the way through college, and will hopefully allow me to spoil my grandchildren. The enormous love & gratitude I have for ABC and Disney for allowing me the privilege of working for them is immeasurable. But the real truth is without the support from all of you, this day would not be what it is. As always, I see you and thank you.”

Make sure to read the entire excerpt.  Now let us know, are you looking forward to what Nancy will share in her upcoming memoir? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
