GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Is Trapped With A Serial Killer


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.

So, what did you think of Ava’s reaction to a kidnapped Carly in the trunk of Ryan’s car? What will happen when Ava realizes she is with Ryan Chamberlain? Share your thoughts as this story heads to its major conclusion, or is it?

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???

JIM! Stop giving them ideas! I certainly hope there are knitting patterns for babies with cloven hooves.

Lol…and its true about the cloven hooves…you must have read the spoiler too

You say that like cloven hooves are a bad thing?

Satan, after I posted that comment, I KNEW you’d turn up. It’s sort of like playing with a Quija board. Ha! Jim, you’re still funny after all these years.

Way to go, Jimh! No more over the top than the whole concoction was/is.

Oh, me oh my–Jimmy!!– you slay me–what a way to start my day—look; reading your post made the sun play peek-a-boo!!…it’s going to be a sun-shiny-rainbow(y) day!!❤️

I just love reading everything you say…it makes my day…

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.

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.

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.

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

Amen Jim!

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… 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!!

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.

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.

It was a nightmare not a dream…

Yes! Better said!

And, commenting further: All involved (including Ms. Grahn) must surely be tone deaf, at the very least!

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.

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! 🙂

Violet, you can’t be eighty-six! You look much younger in your posts.

Now I know why “everybody’s wild about Harry” Thanks, remember age is just a number. At least that’s what I tell myself, every time I pass a mirror.

Harry…you’re too much…HaHaHa!! Love it!!

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!!

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.

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!

JULEXIS Forever!!!

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!

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!

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.

Giovanni Mazza On Contract at General Hospital: What Are Your First Impressions?

This week, General Hospital introduced newcomer Giovanni Mazza in the role of Giovanni Palmieri, who apparently is Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) second cousin, one removed or so the story goes.

The character of Gio showed up at Brook Lynn’s wedding to Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and played the violin at the ceremony. As has been previously reported, Mazza in real-life is a professional violinist and actor.

Upon making his first appearance on the ABC daytime drama series back on May 15th, fans wondered if Gio will be sticking around and that was confirmed by the closing credits of the May 17th episode where Mazza’s name is included along with other contract players.

When the news of Mazza’s casting was announced, the talent young man took to his Instagram and shared the good news, expressing, “I am so honored, grateful, and ecstatic to announce the big news! The biggest thank you to General Hospital for bringing me.” He closed his sentiments with “So much love and joy to my new fam! YAY!!! ”

Commenting on his post included new castmates Evan Hofer (Dex) saying, “Happy to have you brother,” plus Tabyana Ali (Trina), Eden McCoy (Joss) and ABC executive Nathan Varni who said, “Congratulations! Welcome to GH!

Photo: ABC

During the May 17th episode, Gio had an exchange with Dex, where he mentioned that his father was in the military back in early 2000’s.  Previously, Gio revealed to Chase that his father died in the military when he was young. So this begs the question, who is Gio’s dad?

What were you first impressions of Giovanni Mazza in the role of Gio? Who do you think he might be romantically involved with and might be also related to other than the Cerullos? Comment below.

Michael Easton Shares on the Loss of Kamar de los Reyes, “I Was Holding His Hand When He Passed”

For the first time publicly, General Hospital’s Michael Easton (Finn) opened up about losing his best friend, the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, OLTL) to cancer.

The former One Life to Live and All American star lost his battle to cancer back on December 24, 2023 at the age of 56. De los Reyes leaves behind his wife, actress Sherri Saum (ex-Sunset Beach, OLTL) and their twin boys, Michael and John, and his eldest son, Caylen from a previous relationship.

Easton along with Y&R’s Trevor St. John (Tucker) were both castmates with Kamar during their time on One Life to Live. The two shared their remembrances this past Thursday night during’s live virtual event, Daytime Stands Up – A Benefit for Stand Up To Cancer … We All Have a Story.

In tribute, Michael expressed, “It was a 30-year friendship with Kamar. We did our first movie together in 1990. I was scared and I was quiet and I was instantly drawn to his bravado and his sense of himself. Kamar was larger than life. He was the best man at my wedding, and I am the godfather to his son, Michael. His loss was profound on all of us.”

He added, “There hasn’t been a day gone by that I haven’t thought of him, and his family and what he brought to this world, and the contributions he made, not only to this acting community. He loved being an actor and he was a great actor. I always like to say Kamar was such a good actor that they cast him as a priest, not just once, not twice, like seven times. I mean, he was often shirtless. But, if you needed a shirtless priest, Kamar was your guy.”

When discussion turned to the end of Kamar’s life, Michael shared, “I was holding his hand when he passed, and he was surrounded by family and, and friends. There was so much love around him. I mean, he touched so many lives. I mean, Trevor knows that at his memorial, it was the biggest, at Forrest Lawn. They couldn’t even fit everybody in. There was people stretched out all the way to outside. People showed that hadn’t seen him in 20 years. That was the effect. So many of the One Life cast members came and cast from All American.”

Michael also spoke to Kamar’s determination till the end and his incredible work ethic, “Extraordinarily enough, he went to work two weeks before he passed at All American.  He was fierce to the end. He never talked about being sick. Even though the odds were stacked from the very beginning, and it’s still really hard for me to talk about, but I was in awe of his strength and his resolve. I would’ve shut down long before he did.”

If you haven’t done so watch below 46:47 mark for Michael and Trevor’s emotional appearances on Daytime Stands Up as they share their memories on Kamar.

Then let us know, what you thought of Michael’s candid tribute to his best friend via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brook Lynn and Chase’s Wedding Reception Brings a Beatdown for Dex

On Friday’s, May 17th episode of General Hospital, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding reception was the focal point as the touching celebration for the newlyweds got underway.

Sonny (Maurice Benard) was seething over seeing Dex mingle with the guests. With Dex becoming a cop, and ratting him out to Anna, previously Sonny feels betrayed by his former hit man. However, Sonny’s growing paranoia and mental stability is in question, in particular, because he has been off the proper dosage of meds for months now.

Later, when Sonny sees Dex talking with Gio (Giovanni Mazza) about serving in the military, and later chumming it up with Cerullos, he is about to go postal.

Outside the ballroom. Sonny confronts Dex about chatting it up with the Cerullos, who he says are his people. He warns Dex to stay away from his family. Dex says he was invited to the reception.

Next, Sonny calls Dex a snitch, a spy, and lets him know he is “lucky to be breathing.”  Sonny issues Dex a warning to stay away from his family, or he may not be breathing much longer.

As Sonny turns to walk away., Dex grabs him by the arm to try to reason with him and to and say he’s not his enemy. However, Sonny throws a punch. In the pickup, Sonny continues to bloody and beatdown Dex, until Jason (Steve Burton) arrives on the scene and restrains Sonny.

Kristina (Kate Mansi) walks in on the moment. She sees her father is yelling that both Jason and Dex are traitors. Sonny screams that they are both dead and he’s going to put a gun to their heads.

In happy news, Brook Lynn and Chase finally begin their wedding night when they jump onto of their bed in their honeymoon suite. Chase says now they have a great wedding night, which will be followed by a great honeymoon, and that will be followed by their entire life together. They share a kiss.

So, what did you think of Sonny’s explosive words and actions against Dex and Sonny? Will Kristina figure out what is going on with her dad, once and for all? Comment below.
