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.

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???

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

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!!

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… Read more »

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.

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
Guest
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… Read more »

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… Read more »

@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… Read more »

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

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

Photo: KThiebaudIG

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

Courtesy/ABC

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.
