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!

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.

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

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

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

Yes, Shey, and to my feminIST senses!

@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

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

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’s Eden McCoy Chats on Tackling the Role of Young Carly, Josslyn’s love life, and Her Co-Stars

The rivalry between Carly (Laura Wright) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) has deep-rooted history in the past, not just the present, as viewers learn today on a special episode of General Hospital.  In it, we go back to the 90s, before Carly stepped foot in Port Charles.  This gave Eden McCoy, who usually plays Carly’s on-screen daughter, Josslyn Jacks, the chance to play a young Carly as fans of the ABC daytime drama series also see that the episode sheds come clues to a story that will play out in the present in the weeks and months to come.

McCoy got the opportunity to work with a different set of players than her normal scene partners in Port Charles in the episode – Cynthia Watros (Nina), James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) and young Willa Rose (young Nelle), who comprise the Benson ‘family’ in the flashbacks.

However, while Eden got the chance to travel back to the 90s, Josslyn is also in the dark in the present to that kiss shared by her best friends, Trina (Sydney Mikala) and Cameron (William Lipton).   If that lip-lock came to light to Joss, will that finally get her to admit she may feel more than friendship with Cam?

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Eden to discuss: the opportunity to play young Carly, having Laura Wright as her on-screen mom, and going to battle on-screen with her good friend, Chloe Lanier, plus if she would like to share more screen-time with Josslyn’s dad, Ingo Rademacher (Jax), and of course, the burning question, who has Josslyn’s heart? Is it Cameron? Find out when you read on as to what Eden shared below.

On today’s April 8th episode of GH, we see you portraying a young Carly.  Tell me when and how you found out that you were going to play Carly, and what the experience was like for you taping those scenes?

EDEN:  It was really one of my favorite experiences at GH, hands down.  I think if I had to choose favorite episodes, this would be this one for sure. My other favorites prior to this have been: the fight scene with Nelle, the dance scenes I did, and the fake drunk scenes with William.  Those were all so great.  I found out that I was going to do this episode and play a young Carly from Laura Wright.  I ran into her on set for blocking.  We weren’t even working together that day, and she’s like, “Oh, I’ve been told that you’re going to play a young me in an episode,” and then she literally walked away – because she had to work.  So, I was like, “What?”  It was kind of this thing hanging in the air, and I rushed to tell my mom, because I was so excited.  I didn’t get the script until maybe a month after Laura told me.  I didn’t want to ask more about it before then, because I kind of wanted to be surprised, too. Then, when I got the script and read it, I was completely blown away.  Then, when I got the news that Cynthia Watros was going to play Carly’s mom and that James Patrick Stuart was going to play Carly’s dad, I mean, I just about had a heart attack! Those are two actors that I’ve watched and admired so much and haven’t worked with a lot.  So, it was this perfectly gift-wrapped opportunity to get to know my fellow castmates and dive into a whole other character.  Everyone was so involved in that episode.  Look at the set design, for one thing.  You can totally tell that it transported us into the 90s.  Everyone did an amazing job with that style of architecture ….everybody had been researching it …everybody pretty much except for me as I lived through the 90s!  The wardrobe was one of my favorite things ever, because the 90s, for me, is my favorite era of fashion.  I feel like my own wardrobe is heavily inspired by the 90s.  I have vintage pieces; my favorite jeans are 90s Levis. I watched Friends and obviously was obsessed with it.  The wardrobe team did an amazing job focusing on all of the 90s trends with the cardigans and the clogs and the jelly shoes and all of that.  I have three outfits in the episode, and we literally named them “Monica”, “Rachel”, and “Phoebe” after the women on Friends.  It was so much fun.

Photo: JPI

What’s your take on what happened in the episode; as we learn about Carly’s troubled-past with her adoptive parents, and her past with Nelle?

EDEN:  It starts as a look into a young Carly’s everyday life.  She gets home from a job interview.  She is looking for work, and she gets the job, and Virginia and Carly are talking.  However, the conversation turns into how Carly wants to leave home, and have a very different life than Virginia, but she needs money to do it.  So, she leaves her mom, Virginia, to go find Frank, her dad, who, by the way, is a complete turnoff of a dad.  She thought he was going to have some money, and she could be rich, and get it from him, and move to New York, and see the world because that’s her overall goal.  Carly is a very passionate, goal-driven person as we know, so she goes to see Frank.  It will be a heart-wrenching moment for Carly as a character; and you will see how Nelle factors into this.   All of this in the past shows the internal conflict that Carly has towards Nelle as a person and as a character.  It’s not just that Nelle came into her life and hurt her kids and hurt her family, but it’s because it’s that desperate need for validation that Carly had growing up.  I think, she has had this resentment towards Nelle, because of it.

How old were you supposed to be in the flashbacks as young Carly?

EDEN:  I was playing like 18-19 years old, and Nelle was around 6.  Willa Rose was such an adorable little actress.  She and James were so cute together, and James was phenomenal.  He just went 110% on this, and it was so, so fun to work against that.  Every take was different.  James was walking at this pace, or he was eating in this scene, and he totally took it to the place that I knew that he would take it.  Same with Cynthia!  Cynthia was amazing.   I’ve watched them together since Cynthia first came on the show as Nina, and I’ve watched James forever, so I totally scored.

Photo: ABC

Has Laura Wright seen your portrayal of Carly yet?

EDEN:  I’m super excited to see what she has to say about it.  Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) and I were discussing it day-of taping. We were kind of dissecting Laura’s mannerisms so that I could kind of plug them in to my performance. We used when Laura as Carly tucks her hair behind her ear, and Frank was like, “Oh, yeah!  Do that!”  I’ve grown up with Laura, and watching her, and acting against her, and people clearly compare us all the time and are like, “That’s insane.  Do you try to do that on purpose?” It’s like, “No, I’ve just been with her since I was 12, almost every day.”

You realize when working and talking with Laura that she truly gets and understands her art and acting in this genre.  She’s really one of the best there’s ever been in soaps.  She can dissect a scene and understand it from different points of view, etc.

EDEN:  Oh my God, I know.  She’s phenomenal to watch, and I am not immune to that whatsoever.  It hits me every time I see her act.   She’s just been the best teacher.  The comments I get the most are: how much I resemble her looks wise for one, but also acting wise.  So, I’m so excited to see what people have to say following the airing of this episode.

What do you think about Josslyn’s combative relationship with Nelle?  I loved on today’s episode that we got to see the scenes where Josslyn clocked Nelle again!

EDEN:  I would love to slap Nelle again!  Chloe is one of my closest friends on that set.  Even though we haven’t worked together as much as we used to, we are still very close, and I learned a lot from her.  Scenes with her are always so juicy.

Photo: ABC

Where do you think Josslyn is at this point in her love life?  Is she still really into Dev (Ashton Arbab)? Does she truly loves Cameron, but can’t admit it to herself? 

EDEN:  I think that’s it. With Dev, he was an intriguing character with a very different background than Josslyn.  They say opposites attract, and I think that goes along with this story a little bit.  He’s just something that’s new, and someone who she is intrigued by, and I think that’s realistic.  I know that’s happened to me in my love life before.  I’m not sure where it’s really going to go between Dev and Josslyn.  Then for Cam, I think she doesn’t want to admit the feelings that she has for him to herself because that’s a whole big can of worms. I think she feels that once she admits that it might – not necessarily ruin their friendship – but taint it.  Cam is such a safe place and such a home for Josslyn.  I feel like if she were to admit that to herself, she’d be like, “Oh, no.  I’m going to make this uncomfortable and weird, and I can’t lose Cam as a friend.”  That’s always kind of been where her head is at, but I think as she spends more time with him, her feelings become more and more clear.  You never really know what’s going to happen, and I don’t think she’s set on anything.  Teenagers are just all over the place with feelings, and one day they feel this and one day they don’t.  So, it’s always such fun to play because I know some fans are dying to see Cameron and Josslyn get together that and some people don’t want to see that.  It’s fun to hear everybody out and to hear everyone’s opinions on it.  For me, I just hope it can be something fun to watch.  That’s always the goal.

Photo: ABC

So now Trina has shared a kissed Cam, and Josslyn doesn’t know that yet.  What do you think her reaction is going to be when she finds out? 

READ MORE
DAYS Alums Shelley Hennig and Olivia Rose Keegan Land New Roles

EDEN:  It will be interesting to see how the writers do that when she does find out, because Trina has been a great friend to Josslyn, and Josslyn wants to be a great friend back, and of course, Joss is a great friend to Cam.  These are her two best friends.  She doesn’t really want to be anything but supportive.  I feel there is going to be a lot of internal struggle with that because I think that action is probably going to make her realize, and come to terms with some feelings that she has probably been avoiding, for sure.

Do you think that Josslyn has truly moved on with her life following her last boyfriend, Oscar’s heartbreaking death, so that she can welcome and accept new love into her life?

EDEN:  I think she’s moved on, at least I hope so!  That’s a pain that she’ll take with her for the rest of her life, and an experience that she’ll always have in her back pocket. That’s great as an actor … to have had a deep, influential experience because you can bring that into certain scenes and make them stronger.  Right now, I think she’s just trying to be normal and feel normal things, and that’s where I hope that her story will continue to go.  Life goes on, and we have awesome teenage characters that I’m happy to be a part of and working with.

Photo: ABC

Whenever the fans have seen William Lipton and you together, they have noticed that you get along so well. What can you say about William?

EDEN:   We do get along so well.  William is the best.  He’s really like a sibling.

Would you like to see more scenes between Jax and Josslyn? Don’t you think he should be more involved with his biological daughter’s life?

EDEN:  Yes!  From day one of meeting Ingo five years ago, he just made it so comfortable for me.  We have had a complete connection.  We share so many similar traits.  For instance, we both love the beach and we have a similar drive.  I will say that our relationship outside of the scenes is what makes those scenes what they are and what makes them fun to watch, and why when you’re watching, you feel like, “How is this not real?”  So, that’s why he is one of my all-time favorite scene partners.

Photo: JPI

Your mom was, and is, a big GH fan, right?

EDEN:  Yes, she grew up watching GH in her sorority house, and her two crushes were Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher), and I’m their kid on the show!  I remember when I auditioned for Josslyn.  I was given a fake script with a fake character name on it, so, we didn’t really know what my family tree looked like, or anything.  When my mom saw Maurice and Ingo in person for the first time, and I remember her freaking out.  I can’t even imagine what it was like for her.  My mom was just as excited as me to have this opportunity.

Are you at home quarantining, and taking care of yourself during this COVID-19 pandemic that we all find ourselves facing together? How’s that been going for you?

EDEN:  It’s going good.  I’m not complaining about staying in bed. (Laughs)  No, it’s been fun just trying new things and spending time with the family. You know, I’m usually so busy that it’s nice to have a little down time for a minute, but I naturally like to stay present and connect with people on social media, et

What are the fans saying to you most on social media that they want for Joss? 

EDEN:  I am hearing a lot about Cam.  It’s a big, “Is that going to happen?  Is that not going to happen?  Team Cam/Team Not Cam.”  That’s always fun because I love to have rivalries.  That means that people are invested in the story.  I get a lot of Jax things, like, “Where’s Jax?  We need more Jax and Josslyn,” and I completely agree.  However my dream, (and I think what a lot of people want to see) is Josslyn’s rebellion and gearing away from the goody-two-shoes person she is for a minute.

That would be in-line and typical for the daughter of Carly, right?

EDEN:  Yeah, that’s what I’m saying.  When I hear about what Carly had done at my age and in the past, I’m like, “I have that DNA.”   Carly had a very painful upbringing with not a lot of parental supervision and support.  She had no father figure growing up, and Josslyn has had two. That really shapes a person and makes them who they are, but I do feel like with all of the pain the Josslyn has gone through; some kind of off-the-rails moment would be fun to play and will be hopefully in her future.

So, what did you think of Eden’s performance of young Carly on today’s episode of GH? Do you want Josslyn to end up romantically with Cameron or someone else? Do you think Josslyn should display a more rebellious side given that she is Carly’s daughter? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Has a Feeling She Has ‘A Daughter Out There’

The latest promo for this week’s episodes of General Hospital has been released and from the looks of it – and a key episode set to air on Wednesday April 8th – the mystery surrounding if Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter is alive, and if so who is it, looks to be kicking into high gear.

There is that necklace that Nina is looking at in the promo, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) who seemingly now is being given an opportunity to work with Nina thus getting closer to her who notices the necklace, and then there is Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who many have thought could actually be Nina’s daughter given their original tense relationship.

And coming up on Wednesday, look for a special episode where the show looks at Carly’s (Laura Wright) past with her adoptive parents Frank and Virginia Benson before she came to Port Charles in 1996.

Look for Eden McCoy (Josslyn) to play a young Carly, Cynthia Watros to play Virginia, James Patrick Stuart to play Valentin, and Willa Rose to play a young Nelle.  What will we learn from that episode?

Now below watch the latest teaser from GH, and let us know if you think Nina will finally figure out who her real bio-daughter is via the comment section below.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
