GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Is Trapped With A Serial Killer

Courtesy/ABC

Ava Jerome (Maura West) got an eyeful on Thursday’s episode of General Hospital when she finds Carly (Laura Wright) gagged and knocked out in the trunk of “Kevin’s” (Jon Lindstrom) car.  Just then, Carly begins to open her eyes, but Ava is stunned when she finds “Kevin” standing behind her.   When Ava is trying to process what she just saw and her groom’s reaction to the sight of Carly in the truck of his car, he tosses it off, and lets her know he has a handle on everything and to go back to their motel room and wait for him.

Later, in their motel room in Niagara falls, Ava considers calling 911, but in that moment decides against, and begins to think that “Kevin” has had a mental breakdown as he has in the past.  When he shows up, “Kevin”asks Ava to trust him,  But when Ava asks why Carly was in the trunk of his car, he responds that it’s a wedding gift for his bride-to-be.

Meanwhile, the manhunt is on for Ryan Chamberlain as the real Kevin Collins has now been admitted to General Hospital.  Chase (Josh Swickard) fills Lulu (Emme Rylan) in on what is going down and she finally remembers it was Ryan, not Franco (Roger Howarth), who stabbed her, and she was his victim when Ryan hypnotized her to believe Franco was the serial killer.

Laura (Genie Francis)is on her way to Niagara Falls with Jason (Steve Burton), who is going to find Carly and bring her home as he is worried sick about his best friend.  Cameron (William Lipton) who is in the Falls with Joss (Eden McCoy)and Oscar (Garren Stitt), who has had a major seizure, runs into Ryan, but doesn’t know it, until he has a phone call with Liz  (Rebecca Herbst) who fills him in that Franco is not the murderer, but Ryan is.  Cameron has the tip to help all, with the name of the motel where Ryan is at.  Liz phones Laura and she and Jason head off to find the motel..

When Jason and Laura arrive at the cabin, Laura stays in the car as Jason grabs his gun and heads to Ryan’s room.   When an unnerved Ava tries to  tell “Kevin” that he must let Carly go and bring her back to Port Charles safely before they get married, he informs  Ava there is nothing for her to worry about.  He has already taken Carly five miles east of the motel.  Next thing you know, the scene transitions to a shot of Carly lifeless on the ground.  We go back to Jason, who kicks down the  door to Ryan’s room with his gun drawn.

there was a lot to process, clearly Ava is shock, its like she doesn’t really wanna go in her mind and believe that Kevin has gone bonkers. if she does it could make her realize he killed kiki. when she finds out he’s really Ryan Chamberlin wish is why Laura is there to reveal to her, well then she will go mama bear and “kill” Ryan. as long as Jason doesn’t become the one that captures/kills Ryan I’ll be ok, but if they turn this into Jason saving the day, then epic ending as far as I’m concern.

Love Kevin/Ryan, Ava, etc. Now Laura is propping up the mob. Unbelievable. Felicia, Mac, & Lucy should have been involved in this storyline.

Laura should have led the way; hey, she could have taken down Kevin on her own–and should have been allowed to by the writers.

So Ava is going to be pregnant by psycho Ryan and later she and Carly go into labor at the same time…then Ava switches the baby with Carly’s at the hospital???….and the baby will be called Damian and Carly discovers 666 on the back of the child’s head and says, ‘Well,this has got to be proof he really is a Corinthos’-lol???

Ava is a powerful queen; she will conquer over Ryan, and come out victorious in this! Maura West has been a shining beacon of light in this long-winded storyline, that I hope it wrapped up in the next week or so!

Its too bad they have to muck up the Ryan finale with all these other little boring SLs. We deserve better than this, considering how long we’ve waited for the Ryan outcome.
Oh well, we got to see Alexis come close to breaking her nose with her knees. So glad it turned out to be a dream/nightmare.

nancy dillingham

Hey again, Violet! I agree re the boring SL’s–story really lost any impact or real drama that it might have had.

The one thing I have always loved about Jason is when the man pulls his gun he is definitely going to use it not talk you to death but this time around Ava deserved that privilege . I do however hope they do not let Kevin off as the victim he did help set this whole thing in motion by not revealing his brother was still alive.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

She was really taken in by him–thought she was more street-smart than not.
And she still insisted (after finding Carly in the trunk of the car) that it was KEVIN having a breakdown. Come on! That’s pretty dense!

Timmm

I liked that Cameron bumped into Ryan. It was an awkward but valuable scene. If Ryan is so bad and he is, he killed nine women, why would he let Carly live? I dont mind if Jason saves Carly BUT it has to be Ava who kills Ryan.

Jimh

He let Carly live as proof he really is insane-lol

She’s Jason’s special cargo, Jimmy—tiny, little bird that she is!!
I hope Ava draws Ryan out. Then, make him believe she believes in him—-when he least expects it —-BOOM!! Strike; in a New-York-minute–pardon the pun…..as fast and as lethal as an asp’s tongue/fangs!!
I struggled between Laura and Ava–who should take Ryan out—-Ava won out for me. Why? Because of Kiki. Lulu survived–Kiki is gone forever….well, unless she’s in hiding from Ryan, LOL. Hey, she could resurface. It’s a soap!!
❤️

nancy dillingham

Wish Laura (the WIFE, for heaven’s sake) had had more dramatic scenes. She SHOULD have. Having “Ryan” fall for Ava really stretches credulity–and takes away from the story line.

Celia
Celia

Right???? Funny thing, T—I said exactly that when eyeing Carly’s body in that small space “passing” as a trunk. How did Ryan lift her limp body?
If Ryan were the ogre he is; why did he not kill Carly?—-goes completely against his mental make-up. I was under the impression he left no one alive in his wake…..bad writing!!
Soooo, for a fiend as meticulously fastidious as he—again, I ask; why not kill Carly?
I, also, find the Carly/Jason relationship sort of creepy. I must lead a very sheltered life, Timmmy!!
Does Carly really need saving? The fact that she didn’t die while in the clutches of “Ryan the Ripper”, was a tell-tale sign she would live. The scene where she slid down that ramp ( whatever it was) evoked visions of another pregnant woman ( Sam) —-except that Sam gave birth on cat-poopie with her pants on!! Ha!!
So, why isn’t Sonny her hero? Weird, weird, weird…….
Speaking of Turkey ( the country–LOL), I did see so many turkeys acting as Turks who spoke perfect English. In which half of hemisphere? And, why would they speak English amongst themselves?
I must say that teen boy is soooo cute—unfortunately, by the end of his scene, he completely lost his strange Turkish accent and fell into a distinct America drawl…
He’s an eye-opener and a mouth-agape”r”. He should come to PC and be part of the ‘team’. Maybe Sonny could adopt him?
❤️

C, Jason and Carly do seem to do everything together but sleep with one another. She seems willing but he doesnt. I’m glad, I like that bromance that Sonny and Jason have. Speaking of Soneybuns, it is hard to believe he could go to Turkey and start threatening people. He must be a worldwide bully? But anyway, yes, I hope the young boy sneaks on Sonny’s plan and he takes him in. He can poke around with Joss once Oscar signs off! He would fit in with the teen scene!

I thought they were going to do a One Life to Live rip-off and send Carly over Niagara Falls like they did with Tina when she went over the Iguazu Falls in Argentina. Carly will definitely lose this baby. The pregnancy was stupid to begin with. Ava needs to get pregnant by Ryan.

Violet Lemm

I think she may be pregnant in real life, and they may be wanting to write it in.

I want to comment on the “dream sequence” of Alexis today–in such poor taste on International Women’s Day to have such “violence” and such chauvinistic talk by Julian about Alexis liking it “rough.” I’m disappointed in GH powers that be, the writers, and, most especially, Nancy Grahn for participating in the scenes as they were written. And don’t anyone say “It’s just a dream!” And to have Alexis be so “needy” for a man–to go back to the bottle of vodka. Shameful! Shame on all those involved.

Jimh

It was a nightmare not a dream…

Nancy,Being as old as I am, at 86, I didn’t find it sexy, as they might have intended, but silly. I kind of saw it as a take on the Paso Doble dance, however, I didn’t really see it as violent. Maybe I’m more evolved than I thought.Ha,ha.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Hey there, Violet!
I saw it as violent because Julian said: “You like it rough!” And give me a more “smooth” and “easy” dance–maybe a waltz or even a smooth square dance: “Swing your partner, left and right,” and then “promenade home.” You get the picture, I’m sure! 🙂

I am staying out of this one, Miss Violet—-Shay and I were roasted commenting on flailing legs and camisoles a’ hangin’ by one skimpy strap.
By the by—my GG ( great grandmother) was almost one hundred years old and watched soaps–her comments, much like her daughter’s , my Gran, were just as irreverently scathing as hers. My grandmother’s vocabulary is very colorful ( depends on one’s definition of the word) …one needs to be very stoic and keep a straight face. Especially in her Scottish brogue!! I have yet to figure out if she really means what she says. My grandfather simply looks at her and shakes his head.
You’re extremely tame by comparison.
I like Alexis now…..yet, I knew TPTB were going to go there again. I suspect this carnal, sweaty dream is just an introduction of more to come. If we were all lulled into thinking , “It ain’t gonna happen”?, well, it will.
Drew will end up with Dr. Nero and Alexis with Julian…..I hope not four-six times a day—that’s more than the daily intake of food. I’d be dead!!

Shay
Shay

Oh. My. God! Just when I thought that the pathetically wanton creature called Alexis could not be any more repulsive, she manages to plumb the depths of the disgusting and depraved to an even greater degree. In what universe does a “fantasy” such as this one be considered “acceptable?” And how on earth can anyone defend it? we’re supposed to hail the hideously flawed Alexis as some sort of mouthpiece/role model of modern day womanhood to be admired and applauded??? She’s obsessed with men and sex, consistently selects the most dangerously unsuitable mates and makes one bad life choice after another in her desperate quest for male companionship—often to the detriment of her own daughters by three different fathers—all whilst maintaining the demeanor of a giddy schoolgirl experiencing her first throes of slutty ectasy!!! And when it all goes predictably pear-shaped, she finds solace in the bottle….yes, there is soooo much to celebrate about this character who is completely bereft of both basic morals and common sense! Quite frankly, I find her an absolute insult and affront to my feminine senses.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Yes, Shey, and to my feminIST senses!

Shay

@Nancy….Thank you for your response! You say “to-ma-to,” I say “to-mah-to,” but we seem to agree that every woman should be strong and dignified whilst living her best life full of grace and self-esteem EVERYDAY of the year!!!!!! Sadly, Alexis simply does not demonstrate those qualities…more’s the pity!

Nancy, I wanted to thank you for your nice comments you made to me but I am afraid to bother Michael Fairman as I know he is is a very busy man. That said, I could not agree with you more. I was back to liking Alexis again and then they have her reverting back to type. How many times must we see her struggle against her addiction to bad boys and her subsequent addiction to alcohol? She is sixty years old for heaven’s sake! I was not shocked or clutching pearls, but I was, however, incredibly bored.
I am hoping her new psychiatrist and potential love interest will finally get her to see she is attracted to bad boys because her father was a bad man and his love was unattainable to her. But she should have reached that psychological milestone a long, long time ago.

nancy dillingham

Thanks, Harry! And you’re so very welcome! I agree with you (again!) that “she should have reached that psychological milestone a long, long time ago.”

Violet Lemm

Harry,
You have very good insight. I think that’s what the writers want us to see in the loved starved Alexis, wanting someone like daddy, while knowing its not good or healthy, also as she told Finn, unable to change. I just can’t write her off as repulsive or disgusting, but as a woman to pity. Remember what I told you before Harry, age is just a number. We still crave love at sixty, I think, if I could remember that far back, ha,ha.

Harry
Harry

Violet, I agree–no one is too old for romance, for love and for sex. But one can be too old to continue repeating old, self-destructive patterns such as being attracted to bad boys. I think I wasn’t quite clear earlier.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Harry
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks either, but hopefully in Alexis’s case her new doc can. A lot of women like the bad boy type, and it might be OK, as long as it doesn’t get to be hurtful and destructive.

Shay
Shay

And that last part is the cavaet there, Violet! When have Alexis and her various dalliances not become hurtful and destructive for her, but her children, too??? It’s happened so many times now that it has ceased to be fresh, provocative or interesting…only wholly predictible and tedious. Quite frankly, I cannot understand the entertainment value of seeing this obtuse character repeatedly subjecting herself to humiliation and degradation through her deplorably poor choices of bed partners, no matter the psychological motivations assigned to them. Sure, a lot of women like “bad boys, ” especially in their youth, but most reach a point in their maturity where they recognize that such dangerous romances lead to no good, and they learn from their past experiences. In the case of Alexis, she compounds every broken relationship by selecting an even worse mate the next time around…I’m sorry, but once someone has occupied the planet for five or six decades, some semblance of common sense should prevail!

Celia
Celia

Exactly, Violet. I have come to like Alexis since her departure from Julian. I have said something similar, not as eloquently as Harry….but, Alexis has very low self-esteem. This is why she turns to bad boys and the bottle. Intimacy makes her feel accepted and needed, while alcohol is a soothes her boo-boos. I doubt she know the true meaning of live–of a stable and lasting relationship. I’m glad she’s seeling a psychiatrist. Perhaps, whats-his-name cam put some order in her fragmented life.
I have come to feel sorry for Alexis. Suddenly she does not repulse me because I understand what drives her destructive nature. Alexis does not like herself—very low self-esteem; ergo, she loses herself in the sexual act and assumes it’s love. Pleasing her partner means pleasing herself ( not sexually, but rather emotionally). Unfortunately, these feeling of self-satisfaction do not last– the purr-ring stops –round ‘n round she goes.
Whether the writers want us to see the multi-faceted Alexis or not—repetition is a turn-off. Let’s not go that round again!!

Shay
Shay

But CeeCeeGirl, the problem is that for Alexis “seeing a psychologist” defines something wholly different than it would for you, me and the rest of the sensible population. There will be no “self-discovery” or “emotional breakthroughs” for this character through therapy. In her world, that expression shall just mean sleeping with him….mark my words!!!! The predictible nature of this piteous creature makes that a certainty…Hence the question isn’t isn’t if, but when….and how many times??? As you said…repetition!

Wil
Wil

That scene was hot af.. I love that women over 30 have steamy sex lives

@Wil….I’m given to understand that there are copious amounts of websites dedicated to that very subject…Alexis would seem to be a natural fit for that particular cyber milieu.

GH Head Writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor Reveal More Details On Michael E. Knight’s New Soap Role

When daytime favorite Michael E. Knight debuts on General Hospital on September 30th, he will not be coming to Port Charles as his former All My Children alter-ego Tad Martin; but instead will be playing a different character.

EW.com has first look photo of Knight in his new role and spoke directly to General Hospital co-head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor for the scoop on the ever-popular Knight’s return to ABC.  On GH. Michael will indeed play a new role.

According to the scribes: “There are a number of people in Port Charles who are in trouble and his character will have an impact on how their stories are solved or further complicated.”

Both Van Etten and O’Connor shared: “As we were writing his character, we found out that oh, we have even more use for him! It’s helpful to know who the actors are in this situation. We have lots of ideas on how we can expand his character and cross-pollinate his character.”

As to how long Knight will be sticking around Port Charles, that was not offered-up, but what was is that Michael’s new character will mix it up with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) with whom Knight worked with on All My Children when James played Will Cortlandt.

Because ABC now has the rights back in their possession to use the characters from One Life to Live and All My Children, Van Etten expressed: “We have conversations when we have these actors come back about whether it’s more useful or not to resurrect their characters. “=We’ll continue to have these as the opportunity arises.”

So, what do you think Michael E. Knight’s role will be based on these tidbits from the GH scribe? Share your theories via the comment section below.

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
