General Hospital Big January Bombshells!

Courtesy/ABC

ABC has released a new promo for General Hospital which entices viewers by letting them know things are about to go down this month!

As January begins, Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes) share a steamy kiss, while it appears Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Julian (William deVry), “You owe me blood.”  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is shocked over something she finds out, while Nathan (Ryan Paevey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) are reeling from the news that Faison is Nathan’s bio-dad.

Now Maxie asks Mac(John J. York) to help her and Nathan disappear! She is concerned about her unborn baby.

Meanwhile, everyone is guessing just who could be Faison’s other son that links the story of what happened to Jason (Steve Burton) and Drew (Billy Miller).

Watch this week’s promo for GH after the jump.  Then let us know, how do you think all of these stories will play themselves out in the comment section below!

Peter August will be Faison’s other son!

Jovin

Why the Faison obsession all of a sudden?! We don’t want to see a show populated by his offspring! The show has been awesome for months…but all this Faison stuff is a downer. So is Sonny telling Julian he owes him blood! The show is SO much livelier, more romantic, and far more entertaining when Sonny isn’t on! I don’t like Julian at all, but he owes Sonny nothing! Sonny is a savage bloodthirsty pig!!! Just a note on Julian, if he is trying to start over and convince people he is being a better man, why does he barge into every room and every situation and act like a complete jackass?!? He demands to see his son Leo, when asking and arranging for visits might just work as a start! He acts like Griffin has NO reason to be upset with him, even though he “killed” Duke once, and ordered the final hit that killed him. When you want to convince people you have changed, you do that by acting and behaving differently, hence the word CHANGE!! You don’t behave like the same smarmy arrogant prick you always were!! Griffin could also tone down the righteousness about the mobster father he never knew. One of the things that prevents me from completely enjoying GH is the hypocritical double standards that so many of these characters adhere to. Sam, mob moll extraordinaire, worshipped Jason and loves Sonny, two murderous thugs, and yet proclaims to hate her own father for the same reason! Olivia kept Dante away from Sonny all his life, until the day Sonny point blank, cold blood shot the unarmed cop in the chest, but she has since whacked up with Sonny, now considers him a best friend, yet hates Julian for the same reasons. Yes, Julian held a knife to Alexis, but he was doing it to throw his psycho sister off track. Yet does anyone remember when Carly ordered a hit on Franco, and the bullet hit Olivia (or so they thought)? Sonny repeatedly threatened to murder Carly! Two years later, they were married again!! I’m not saying these things to defend Julian, I can’t stand him. But why does Sonny walk around town with a glowing halo and people just despise Julian? At least Julian is TRYING to get out of “the business”…something Sonny has never even earnestly tried!! I also vomited in my mouth when Michael said to Sonny “If I could be half the father you were…” This Sonny worship and adoration is literally the one reason I cannot fully enjoy this show!! Finally, this is a show chock full of couples and romance and interesting storylines, and Sonny just drags it down. And can someone please shut Molly up!!!??? Since when do teenagers get up in the face of mobsters? It’s ridiculous! Every time it happens it makes her sound like a shrill harpy, and then she merrily chirps off talking about “Uncle Sonny”. Hayley Pullos is a very engaging performer but… Read more »

YES, YES, Y – E – S : “Ava needs a visit from Delia!! ”

you got me thinking… it’s too bad, Julian and Ava don’t have the same mother… as it would be great to see this brother and sister duo… chill and relax !

dag… I can’t stand all the bashing these two take…. day in and day out

whilst Sonny and Carly just meander along acting… did I say that’s true… they are the dullard recipe of dead on arrival. their son Michael is dumbo. i’m so glad Morgan is not on the show. somehow … GH has got to get that they are the ruination of what once was

like so many posts have shared… their is so much more to this show…

WHAT ARE SONNY AND CARLY. drag this show down to nothing

GH WRITERS – WOAH. if you think the culmination of thee beefcake studs Jason and Drew are the supreme being… that end all and be all… for your show

MOLLY MOLLY MOLLY – dag! right ? at least it’s not Sam… she’s so tiring with Alexis and Julian… just TIRED. listening to teen beat Molly has been so grating on nerve endings… STOP . makes me miss Kristina that much more

THIS Faison stuff is spiraling … this story line. as posts have stated… why haven’t Jason and drew , together as brothers… tried to find out together. whats happening to them ? instead we are spotlighted with the Shelley and Frank scenario with laugh out loud.. Jason , Sonny, and Spinelli… teaming up to figure this all out.. and it’s caricature and does not trigger a damned thing… watching Sonny lord over and act that much more king pin.

I truly think… Shelley and Frank are so fixated on Sonny and Carly.. that they have let go so much talent by the wayside

it’s going to have a rippling affect.. that not even Steve Burton and Billy Miller cannot undo and save

All the Faison talk? Because he is the best villain GH ever had! Molly, I agree, shut the hell up!

Shay

@Jovin (and Patrick)….Your thoughts on Molly are so spot-on! She used to be such a lovely, well-mannered young lady, naturally beautiful and sweet-tempered. What happened???? As of late, she has seemingly morphed into a junior version of her overbearing mother…obnoxious, bolshie and mouthy!!! She has even adopted a more physical resemblance to Alexis with the overly-mature haircolor and style, which is not nearly as attractive as her own originally gorgeous, glossy brunette locks! Please, please save this character from being overtaken by her maternal DNA before it’s too late, or next thing you know, Molly will be trotting around in over-revealing tartwear and engaging in all sorts of wildly inappropriate antics with TJ!!! P.S. Loved the Delia suggestion! It’s once again time for her own patented brand of crazy to crash Port Charles!

I, too, agree with almost everything you said, Jovin. But, like Boop, I like Julian. As for his attitude…he did try. He tried with Alexis and Sam. He tried with Molly. They all basically spit in his face. He has asked repeatedly to be allowed to see his son. Olivia has said no at every turn. He gave up his rights and agreed to let Ned be his son’s father when he thought he’d remain in jail. That alone should have shown Olivia that he puts his children first. So, I can understand his “attitude.” However, you’re right about his attitude with Griffin. He needs to cut him some slack and understand Griffin’s wrath.

And, if I may make one tiny adjustment…I’d take Sonny over Carly any day! (And that’s not to say I don’t have my problems with Sonny.) I just can’t stand Carly. She’s the one that initiated taking Michael from AJ, who doused him with alcohol, who poisoned Sonny, Jason and Michael against him, she’s the one that tried to make AJ think he fell off the wagon yet is enraged at Ava for screwing with Morgan’s pills. Of course Ava was wrong…but she acts like she hasn’t done the same thing with Monica’s son! Michael’s father! Jason’s brother. To me, Carly is the biggest hypocrite on the show. And Ava, I like her. Great character. But, she really pissed me off when Alexis came to her door hoping she could help Julian in jail. Julian is Ava’s brother! He was being beaten and Alexis was trying to help him Instead of appreciating that, knowing what Julian put Alexis through, Ava was snarky with her. Again…hypocrite. Doctors? Hospital? Hippocratic Oath? Should be called Hypocritc Oafs!

Probably Franco…but i want Finn(dont care about age difference)…Anna was Faison’s obsession for so long and having her falling in love with his son would be a shocker to Anna!!!!…i know others think its that other guy working with Lulu or maybe its Dr.Brandt but Finn would throw complications into his relationship with Anna!!!!

Celia

You speak as a true, soap connoisseur, Jimmy….Finn, as the ‘other’ son is as soapy as we can get. Good point!!

Kristen Storms is looking fantastic. Congrats, my dear!

Celia
Celia

Doesn’t she? I tend to agree with Shay….she proposed a real-life pregnancy….hmmm…I wonder. Kirsten could be, T.
Also, isn’t that Greg Evigan? ( developer guy)…. you know who I mean? I watched BJ and the Bear reruns….and, My Two Dads? Gosh Almighty…he was sooooo hot. He still is, I guess.

Fanny

@CeeCee Sweets, Yes Greg Evigan…what a nice surprise to see him
on T.V. again. HAPPY NEW YEAR BLESSINGS TO ALL‼️‼️

Boop

Thanks, Celia, I was trying to think of who he is.

If Kirsten is pregnant, it works, she looks radiant!

One of the things I love about you Celia is your old soul. YES, that is Greg Evigan! I loved BJ and the Bear! Greg is 64 and he looks fantastic! I pray that he stays on the show. He can act and is charming. Now that he is connected to Franco’s childhood, I may get my wish!

Celia
Celia

@Boop.
Hey, Boop,
You are welcome. Timmm is soooo right…Greg is 64 and still hot, LOL.

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee and Timmm…Mr. Evigan would have made an excellent Jeff Webber recast….same youthful and sexy vibe that “McGyver” once had!

Timmm
Timmm

I think you could be right about Evigan’s new character and Franco. He knows Franco and the two are too far apart in age to be old friends so yeah, maybe his father. I never bought Scott and Heather as Franco’s parents. Too wacky!

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee…The more we see of Maxie, the greater my contention that her portrayer is also “with child.” There is simply something about her demeanor that makes me suspect so….she has that unique combination of the visible ennui and glow of an expectant mother! As for Greg Evigan’s rather shady character being Franco’s father???? Hmmm….me thinks he’s more of a scammer looking to score with that Charles Street development deal and regards the man-child artiste as a key to achieving that goal???

Celia
Celia

@Shay.
Maxie looks about four months/five months along, Shay; depending how big or small a woman carries….whether it’s real life or a pillow is yet to be seen. LOL.
Regardless, Kirsten looks healthy and that particular glow, which some refer to as mythical, is actually there. She shines with it,
More power to her….all the best if your hunch is correct.

Celia
Celia

Right, T? I never bought the father-son thing ….I just wonder if Scotty is in on this mystery with Heather, if true.
And, if so, why?….see that? It is gaining momentum for me….and piquing my interest—– It is exhilarating, anticipating whatever develops….love the story, albeit Franco is freaky, LOL.
By the opposite token, I am not intrigued, one bit, with the Sam/Drew/Jason love triangle.
Now, I know you like Steve, and, perhaps, the storyline…I respect that. I like Steve, as well……but, the only character who interests me; who has the potention of an engaging, and riveting storyline, is Drew….there’s so much to be had concerning his ‘abstract’ past….I want that to become tangible…whatever it is.
I don’t know whether the writers have a plan or if they are testing the waters, as they go along….whatever it is, I want it !!!!!

I have to say;
To suggest those are BOMBSHELLS of the upcoming goes to show how terribly low the bar has dropped for GH..

That promo used to be a Normal week for GH, simply a ya ya normal everyday week..
Now its called BOMBSHELLS, and that is more than sad it’s pitiful, actually.

Seriously, that promo would not even have gotten a mention yet to be referred to as a BOMBSHELL for GH , how low the drama for GH has fallen.

Patrick
Patrick

Bombshell @ GH. Implosion of the whole production team.

I am – sooooo – irritated… “how dare he, Michael , talk down to Ned Quartermaine, how effin dare he”

yeah, this has to play out… as Ned quit … Michael did this again… at the Q’s , as they celebrated Christmas… Michael , thought Ned was so out of line, about shares of ELQ… and told him… “do I have to rethink my bringing you on”

This story sucks.. and any thing to do with Chad Duell portrait of Michael. he sucks.

this made me implode

Wally Kurth ‘ Ned should be CEO of ELQ Period

rose

Really like Ned/Wally. Want him to have a permanent stay on GH. But far prefer Michael’s vision for redevelopment and emergency health clinic than just new, big, expensive, displacement of neighborhoods. Too much of that in real life. Hope they can come to a combo of both sensibilities. But do agree with many about the blind loyalty Michael shows towards Sonny…AJ, baby Avery and Sonny’s profession come to mind.

Patrick
Patrick

“Never a dull moment”

I swear .. it looked like anna was crying like a school girl.. at GH….. when Liz was talking to her. about: giving it a try w/Finn. think about it

Michael Easton has been propped .. and given more chance than any character I know.

the writing is on the wall… hurry up and wait fans.

I have to agree, su000. I’m kind of surprised this story is generating so much heat. I don’t miss Faison or any related stories involving him.

Oh Joey, no. Please don’t let that be true (though you’re probably right). I really can’t bear Wes Ramsey in this role. I liked him on GL, but he is miscast here. To me, he looks like a high school drama student trying to play older. And badly.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

@Soaphound. At least he is among his old friends from GL, especially his lady love, Laura Wright. Can’t wait until she has reason to chew him out, for some reason or other. Should be fun. They didn’t interact, while both on GL, if I remember right.

Timmm
Timmm

I agree, bad choice!

Celia
Celia

I am not familiar with this actor, Soaphound….but, I must agree. He does look like a High School student. He’s Laura’s real-life boyfried? Wow!!
I, sort of, put him in the same box as Zack on Y&R—both look too young for their respective roles.

If thats the case, they should have done a better job casting him.

GH is usually so on point with their casting but lately they haven’t been doing very well. The Swiss doctor was TERRIBLE and the publisher is just as bad. I don’t know the actor as I never watched GL so I can only see him for what he’s doing on this show.. .and he’s marginal at best.

Celia
Celia

Hey, T….
Just watched today’s episode….finally took a breather…
I don’t know if you follow all my posts ( you better!!, LOL)….. many a time I have suggested that Scotty was not Franco’s bio dad…..however, a few fans poo-pooed over my hunch. Scotty appeared very evasive and nervous to me when Franco tried to pry ‘stuff’ from him…
Well, as I was watching the intense scrutiny Jim Harvey ( Greg Evigan) bestowed upon Franco, I couldn’t help but think that he may be Franco’s father. Too far-fetched?
Why the interest in Franco? This guy is somehow an integral part of Franco’s past.

Mary SF
Mary SF

Am I the only one that thinks Nathan’s bio dad will be Faison’s son and not Faison– Dr. O would not be that nervous if Nathan’s dad was Faison, but is she slept with his son and had a child will him that would have blown her world to pieces if Faison found out– just a thought.

Jacob
Jacob

Well, Faison is like 60 and Nathan is 33… soooooooo possible but I think that might be a struggle to reconcile (not that GH or soaps in general care much about reality when it comes to ages… but what did Dr. O do? molest a 15 year old?

Celia
Celia

Great observation, Mary….so good….so juicy. Most think Peter is the ‘other’ son….thus, if that’s the case, he must have done the deed with Dr. O when he was ten?
Nonetheless, my litany has always been ….”It’s a soap”….where age is only a state of mind.

JMER

Not interesting at all. This show needs a serious overhaul. Sending out an SOS.

I have no clue whose Faison other son it’s going to be interesting to know who it will be and I’m interested in who everyone here think it is.

Steve

Hope Frank found the $ and is bringing Anders Hove back for a few weeks. Faison can’t just be talked about, we need to see him.

If the rumors about RP leaving are true, Nathan coming face to face with his bio-dad would be a way to usher him off the canvas.

Shay
Shay

Sort of like how Anna always speaks with Robert “on the phone” due to the prolonged absence of Tristan Rogers’ Scorpio…and likewise with the famously deadbeat dad and WSB head honcho, Frisco!

Steve
Steve

It’s not a $ thing with TR. Frank needs to eat crow and promise a meaningful role for Robert to get Rogers back.

For Hove, the show probably has to pay to fly him from Europe and accommodations during his taping appearances.

There’s no need for Frisco in PC. Maxie and Felicia are both better off.

Timmm
Timmm

TWO great points Shayster! Tristan hasnt even been on Y&R. Is he retired?

Shay
Shay

I certainly hope not, Sir Timmmbo, because our wishes always spring eternal that Robert Scorpio shall again grace Port Charles with his sparkling presence! Given that both he and Frisco have a long history with the WSB, it would be only natural for at least one of them to materialize during this tangled web of a Faison-Cassadine caper. As for Felicia and Maxie not needing Frisco in their lives??? Whilst ex-wifey may not have any further use for him—-and vice-versa, if we’re going to be honest here—-with Maxie and Nathan’s lives, along with their unborn child’s future, in jeopardy, it would be a perfect opportunity for her to be saved by her bio-dad…it would also go a long way toward rehabilitating the unfair deadbeat rap that has been pinned upon Frisco by previous writing regimes who used their apparent dislike for Jack Wagner to burden his character with this unfortunate reputation.

nancy dillingham

Absolutely, Nancy! Tristan’s irresistible charms have always made his Robert Scorpio a real gem…right down that trademark glint in his eyes!

I had predicted a few threads back that Kim and Peter were in cahoots re: Drew & Jason. That payoff will only be worth watching if we see Nathan and Peter’s daddy pop-up during February sweeps.

BTW, since Oscar never had a proper DNA test, it is probable that they could retcon his bio dad to Peter if the character catches on with the audience.

Making Kim and Peter’s deviances the product of Nik Cassadine would be too far fetched I suppose. When the character returns it will likely revolve around Valentin and possibly a Claudette resurgence.

Steve
Steve

So far, Peter is a dud. Maybe that’s the way Wes is playing him, but the acting seems forced.

Your point about Oscar’s DNA is true, but I can’t see them giving us a new Quartermaine, then taking him away.

I can’t believe Dudley Do-Right Nathan agreed to go into hiding/underground with Maxie.

What a way to start off the new year. I’m glued to the TV. It may be cold outside but turn on GH and the fire will burn all of that cold away.

I have a feeling that the traitor/Cesar Faison’s son is also Anna Devane’s son from when Anna worked as a double agent for the WSB and the DVX. Its a possibility that Anna didn’t just give birth to Robin Scorpio during those years. These are photos from when Anna agreed to work for the DVX!!! Faison had talked about Anna to Desiree in 1990 as though he had been intimate with her in the past. Maybe he had been but maybe not willingly, on her end. Anna and Robert Scorpio have both been under his mind control before. This feels like the same twisted story with Laura Spencer and having her son Nikolas Cassadine while she was held prisoner on the island back in the early 80s. BTW did you know that Cesar Faison’s mother Sybil McTavish aka Nanny was Holly Sutton and Anna Devane’s nanny when they were little??? #GH

Robin

I love Anna and Finn together:) I also would love to see Sam and the real Jason back together, she has to remember that she is in love with Drew because she thought he was Jason.. DUH!!!! Faison’s son I think will be Some how related to Sean Donnelly. Remember him he turned out to be a bastard!!!!

I have watched the show since ’84, and unfortunately, now I only “watch” it as filler in the background. I do like Steve Burton, and I like Billy Miller. Unfortunately, I have never been a fan of Kelly Monaco, and she receives a lot of airtime and story. I like Laura Wright, and I’ve always been a fan of Maurice Benard, although, “Saint Sonny” needs to turn in his ring at some point. Unfortunately, the addition of Peter August, who I’m really not a fan of, is giving the insipid, annoying Lulu more airtime. I wish that on-demand had fast-forward, so I could fast-forward her talking about her cafeteria lunch “story.” I like Valentin and Nina, Nathan, too, Maxie, not so much-so, I’m not a fan of the Faison storyline because 1). Lulu airtime, 2). Maxie airtime. I would like to see more of the vets, and not as filler. I don’t care about the Charles Street neighborhood or Molly’s landlord. I want romance, super couples, and believable storylines (not mind mapping/swapping, etc.) & Kim what’s her name really grates on my nerves.

Steve
Steve

Lulu, Maxie (and Michael) are the key characters for the show’s future. The connections with the Spencer, Scorpio/Jones and Quartermaine families link to the show’s legacy.

The Charles Street project is not very exciting, but it sets up the mayoral race between two vets — Ned and Laura.

The only characters I like on G.H. are: Ava, Drew , Julian, Monica , Oscar, and Valentin. I use to like Alexis , but she allows too many people to tell her what to do.

Shay
Shay

@Boop…On the contrary, it seems to me that the raison d’etre ala Alexis is condescendingly telling other people what to do, so much to the extent that her motto should be “Do as I say, not what I do!” Carly is another excellent example of such behavior, but Alexis really does take the cake when it comes to supreme hypocrisy.

Rebecca1

Hi Boop…I think Alexis was just so destroyed by what Julian did to her that she both needs the advice of others to remain strong for her sobriety and her professional future. She just got her law license back and basically, her life. At the same time it’s so obvious that she still loves Julian and is fighting with herself…trying to resist the urge to give in to her feelings. Nancy Grahan, as you may know, is very political and very involved in the rights of others. I think she may, as an actress/woman…be conflicted as well as to whether her character should reunite with Julian. My sense is that she would never condone a woman going back to an abusive relationship in real life. I think to justify the reunion of Alexis and Julian the character has to be 100% sure that Julian only acted as if he would harm her to deceive his sister who probably had eyes and ears on him constantly…the character and the majority of the audience has to believe it…otherwise the show might have to much of a pushbackf from viewers…especially now with the “me too” movement. Women are making a political statement and though Alexis/Julian wasn’t about sexual abuse, if viewers don’t buy that Julian was forced to prove he would harm Alexis than they’ll just think the show is promoting violence against women and women returning to abuvsive men. I think what they did to this pairing was a horrible choice. Good for the short term…risky for the long term. Though it was the catalyst to Alexis’s spiraling down…and was a great opportunity for Nancy as an actress to take Alexis down that path…the writers just took Julian and had him go from a man in love to a man who seemingly would kill his wife. Personally..and I’ve said this all along…I’d like to see them reconcile and am totallly willing to go along with the reasoning that Julian was pushed into a corner and had to ACT the part of abusive husband/threat. I think the writers gave plenty of hints along the way that Julian was boxed into a corner…I remember when he told Olivia that he wouldn’t go along with her plan and she kidnapped or did something to Sam’s baby to prove she could harm his children… I don’t think Julian would have ever have killed Alexis. I’ve also said on other posts that I think he would have whispered to her to go along with faking her death…but then Sonny intervened. Farfetched, perhaps. But Nancy and DeVry play off each other well and I’d like to see them back together. As far as people telling her what to do…I GET why her children are concerned..though considering all three of her daughters LOVE Sonny and seem to buy every excuse he gives…and Carly, Diane also warned Alexis off Julian…hypocrites as they’re with Sonny and Max… Nancy is getting feedback from her fanbase on Alexis. I’m wondering if the possible… Read more »

Rebecca, I’m not sure they can get Alexis and Julian back to where they were either. One thing that would help is if he dropped the “attitude” he has been carrying around after being let out of a long jail sentence, or worse. And then consider much of his new lease on life like a form of community service to try to rehabilitate his deeds and reputation. And then maybe…

And speaking of Franco…”me too”, true or not, has caught up to him in real life as well. I think what he did to Sam on GH competes with the images I have when Julian had a knife on Alexis’s throat. Hard to forget both of these images, even after time has passed by when they happened. But probably worse towards Franco/Franco on GH since he liked and knew what he was doing at the time. While I like Roger, I’ve never been able to warm up to the character of the new Franco, or him with Liz because of this, brain tumor or not..

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Hey, Rose…

I don’t know…I think Julian has tried to make himself over, just as he did when he first fell in love with Alexis, but practically everyone (with the exception of Alexis and Ava) haven’t been “receptive” to his attempts.

Molly barks at him whenever she can…that sneer is really getting on my nerves! Sonny and Carly, well, you know…THEY’RE so upstanding that of course they’d judge him. Griffin, understandably can’t be in the same room as him and Sam has basically disowned him. In Julian’s defense, almost everything he did was to protect his kids…Sam was a major target as was her children and Julian was compelled to go along with Olivia’s demands to keep his children safe. (WHY they made Julian lesser than Olivia in terms of power is another mystery…but they did. She apparently had corruptive power than him…could seriously destroy those he loved). So, I think it’s a bit frustrating that Sam won’t give him the benefit of the doubt and accept that he scared Alexis but wouldn’t actually have physically harmed her…BECAUSE he was trying to keep those he loved safe…including Sam.

Olivia Falconeri/Q…won’t let him see his son. She embraces Sonny…but closes the door on Julian. And what has Julian done since he’s gotten back? He’s been law-abiding and bought a legit business. So, to me, he’s way above Sonny in the trying to turn his life around department. He even opened his doors on Christmas eve to the hungry!

As for Franco, I DO buy the tumor explanation so I’m over his past. He’s been nothing but decent since.

I always say this but the “people” I defend on GH are probably not people I’d defend in real life. But in story, these characters have redeemed themselves to the point that I truly like them. So many in Port Charles are questionable; Carly remains my least favorite…can’t stand what she did to AJ and even Franco. Difference is she is never humble; always gloating. SHE’S much more repugnant to me than Julian and Franco combined.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

And I’m hoping she CANNOT. A slap in the face to the “MeTOO” movement and the cultural revolution happening now. Would be very poor taste to put them back together. And Julian has always looked stiff and “constipated” to me. Doesn’t seem sexy in any way.

rebecca1
rebecca1

To each her own, nancy. As I said, I think it can only be done if the Alexis believes that Julian would never harm her…and if the fans do, too. I do. However, with Friday’s episode looks like they’re possibly trying a Kim/Julian couple? Though she’ll be somehow tied to Drew…tangled webs.

And that’s why it’s a soap! 😉

Shay

@Boop…..After today’s episode, I have to add that it was superb to watch Sam giving Alexis a good piece of her mind regarding her obsessive tendencies for telling others what to do. It brought back fond memories from when Sam discovered the shocking truth that this pushy know-it-all was her birth mother, and did not take the news—-or the overbearing advice ala Alexis— at all well!!!! Plus, those painfully knowing looks she exchanged with Jason as we were reminded of the many meaningful moments those two shared and survived despite the repeated meddling of Alexis to force them apart really drove home the message that Alexis has never minded her own business when it came to this couple and their relationship ! Really quite ironic when you consider the utter mess that this woman has made of her own life given her repeatedly bad choices in men….and she still hasn’t learned her lesson as she inches back to Julian for an encore to their twisted union.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Boop…doesn’t it just frustrate you that everyone tells Nancy what to do…including Sam, who I love by the way. But! I couldn’t help but think how hypocritical it was of Sam to get angry at Alexis…Sam…who in constantly lecturing her mother about Julian..who is constantly lecturing her not to go back with him…Sam, who NOW thinks Alexis should mind her own business? I wanted to smack Sam! LOL! Alexis is her mom…and has been nothing but supportive of Sam. Of course she’d want her daughter to be with the man who could give her a safe life! Yet, at the same time Alexis also told Sam they should postpone the divorce, that Sam shouldn’t go through with the it yet if she wasn’t sure about her feelings. Sam refused…yet Alexis sensed Sam’s hesitation when she was about to sign the divorce document and came up with another reason to stall the proceedings…to give Sam more time. And when Sam was determined…Alexis did her due diligence as a lawyer, mother and grandmother to want to protect both her daughter and grandchild. (Must be awkward for Alexis, too, because she likes Jason…just not his undying love for Sonny and the mob).

Coming back to your original point, about everyone telling ALEXIS what to do…I think they need to take a good look at themselves for being able to give advice but not take it. That goes for Molly, Kristina, Carly, Diane, too.

John J York, who acts circles around Ryan Paevey , should be on screen more often than a couple of times a year.

Agreed that we need more Mac appearances. But kudos to Ryan Paevey whose acting has greatly improved since first joining the show. Haley Erin has come a long way as well

The other son is a kind of weird all of the sudden mystery….. just came out of nowhere….. for me, it kind of landed like a thud, though. Who cares who the other son is of a character we never see? And another storyline involving two brothers? Aren’t we already in the midst of that with Jason and Drew?

I’m all into the Mayor race but hope that Ned loses and then starts his own company and becomes a Real business buster like Edward. I liked that transformation of Clint becoming Asa on OLTL and I sense a similar transition happening here. I don’t mind Michael, I think he’s fine.

As far as Sonny and Carly, it seems what they want to do is just recreate the Sonny/Carly/Sam/Jason/Spinelli that dominated this show a few years ago – which I hated so much I stopped watching for many years. I hope this writing team have something different in mind.

I like the current mix of new characters and old timers. It feels right and that they’re not just on for a quick ratings grab. Laura and Kevin are practically regulars and Monica and Felecia pop in more frequently and organically than they used to and it looks like from the preview that we’re getting a Max sighting. Here’s hoping that Maxie finally ‘gets’ why Frisco stayed away all these years (ie to keep them safe from people like Faison)

Anyway, the headline is misleading, this isn’t a promo for the entire month of January – it says right on the promo that this is just for this week.

I am more interested in the Jason, Drew, Franco storyline. Here is my take. It was Drew who pushed “Bobby”, Franco down the stairs. This caused Franco’s eventual brain tumor. Drew’s psychotic personality is about to “rear its ugly head !” Look out Port Charles. Ready to “save the day”, Jason, of course !!!!
Also, I think that we all know ,Peter, the new COO at Aurora is P.K. Sinclair. Faison’s other son !

Ingo Rademacher Returns As GH’s Jax Beginning In May

Things will get more interesting in the lives of Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Carly (Laura Wright), Sonny (Maurice Benard) and many others on the GH canvas with the arrival back in Port Charles of Jasper Jacks.  That’s because as previously announced, Ingo Rademacher is headed back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise his signature role.

Circle May 7th for when you will see Jax back in action.  According to EW.com. “He’s back to see his daughter Josslyn and ex-wife Carly”   Jax will also share scenes with Steve Burton (Jason) and of course Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Looks like Jax may be back to help out Josslyn in her time of need as her boyfriend Oscar’s (Garren Stitt) final days seem to be drawing near, or does something else also bring his attention back to Port Charles?

It’s been a bit since Ingo played Jax on GH having last appeared on the soap in April of 2017.  Ingo eventually landed the role as the recast Thorne Forrester on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, a part he played till December of 2018.

Back in March, the actor originally from down under shared on his Instagram account: “Won’t be long now.  Just had my fitting. All new look for Jax. Start shooting next week. No air date yet. Stay tuned. Can’t wait!”

So, excited for some Jax on GH? What do you think will bring him back? What do you think will keep him in town? Comment below.

GH’s Coby Ryan McLaughlin Talks: Shiloh’s ‘Dawn Of Day’ Followers, Playing A Cult Leader, And His Co-Stars

Ever since the arrival in Port Charles of the mysterious “David Henry Archer” (Hank) now better known now as “Shiloh” (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), the minds of several members of the community have been revealed to, or have fallen under his spell.

For Shiloh is the cult leader of the group “Dawn of Day”.  He wields his manipulative skills to entrap unsuspecting people in his quest for power and control.   And make no mistake about it … he certainly has a target for Sam (Kelly Monaco), and an ax to grind with her.   For in her past, “the con-artist” Sam apparently swindled Shiloh’s father leaving him with next to nothing.  In addition to that, it has been noted, that Shiloh shared combat time in Afghanistan with Drew Cain (Billy Miller), before changing his name and coming to the town, where says he owes Drew for saving his life.

In story, one of his most loyal followers, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) was to be initiated in the inner-circle of the cult, and after drinking from the cup as part of the ritual which drugged her, she was saved by Jason (Steve Burton ) who got her out of the “Dawn of Day” house and to a secret location, leaving Shiloh infuriated and needing to cover his tracks.  As the story has played out, we learn that Brad (Parry Shen) has also been bitten by the “Dawn of Day” bug and believes in Shiloh’s musing.  So much so that he wiped the evidence from the cup Krisina drank out of that Jason provided to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) for testing in the hospital.  The GH audience has also learned that Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) was one of Shiloh’s favorite former members of the cult.  She has revealed she had a child with the guy (the baby she thinks is being raised by Brad) and needs to make sure he never finds out.  But, does Shiloh secretly know?

When we last saw Shiloh on Thursday’s episode of GH, he went into the files of the “Dawn of Day” followers and found Kristina’s.  He opened it, and we finally learn her “pledge” – a deep rooted secret from her past that one must share as part of the journey with the cult.  It revealed, that Shiloh knows that Kristina was abused by her former boyfriend Kiefer and that her mother, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) ran him down and killed him with her car.  Kristina knows about it first-hand, because she saw it happen as she was in the car with Alexis.  What will Shiloh eventually do with this Intel?

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Coby Ryan McLaughlin, who has been the catalyst for much of the latest trouble brewing on-screen on GH about: the complexities of playing such a dynamic, and yet terrifying character, what has it been like mixing it up with the stellar cast of the ABC daytime drama series, and what he thinks Shiloh’s next move might be.  Here’s what Coby had to say about all and more!

What do you think about the reaction of the GH audience to Shiloh?  Is it what you expected?

COBY:  I’ve never really played a bad guy like this.  It’s interesting playing a villain because they love to hate you.  I’ll go on Instagram every now and then and throw elbows at the fans.  It’s really a trip.  The thing I like about this guy is that he’s not completely diabolical.  There are other things going on with this guy; he has other agendas as well.  It’s interesting seeing people react to what it is that I am doing while I have a storyline that is playing out.

Courtesy/ABC

It’s is a bit of a trip as you say; because you have to, in many ways, be subtle in the manipulation as a cult leader would do.  Did you do any research on cult leaders before stepping into Shiloh’s shoes?

COBY:  I didn’t do much when I initially got the part, because I actually know some people like this.  I think as actors, one of the most interesting parts of our jobs is that we just get to sit back and observe things about people’s behaviors.  There are certain people who I have come across where my “Spidey senses” start tingling, and you think, “Well, I’m not going to get involved with this person, but what a fascinating individual.  This behavior is so fascinating.”  However, once I started this gig, yes, I did do research.   I’ll tell you, the one thing that a lot of these guys have in common is that they are extraordinarily exuberant.  They have just this energy about them, and they are seemingly humble.  They have these grandiose visions and these delusions of grandeur, but they do it in a way where you’re like, “Huh.  That almost seems kind of normal.”  In order to get a large number of people to follow you, you’ve got to be charismatic, you’ve got to be saying something that people really tap into and want to hear.  The behavior and psychology behind it are really interesting.  I watched this one documentary and these people literally had no idea … until they did.  They literally had no idea that they were in a cult until they woke up, and they were like, “Holy s**t.  This isn’t right.  This doesn’t feel right.”   Shiloh is an interesting role to play, and it’s written so straight down the line that I really don’t have to push anything, because the guy is written as what he is.   It’s really cool to be able to find all of the little things in that character, so I try to make him a whole bunch of different things to different people.

Did you know from the beginning that Shiloh would turn out to be this cult leader in the “Dawn of Day” storyline?  Who did you screen-test with that landed you the part?

COBY:  No, I didn’t know what he was going to be in the beginning.  I knew that he had an agenda, and when Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) told me that he was going to be a cult leader, I was like, “Oh, okay.  I know what I want to do.”   I have always had the opinion that cult leaders don’t come off bad… they’ve got to be likable.  You have to be able to relate to them in a way.  You have to be able to look at them and be like, “Ah well, maybe in certain circumstances what this guy is doing is okay.”  You have to be able to almost justify some of the behavior until you can’t anymore.  I screen tested with Laura Wright (Carly), and she is really fantastic.  We sit in the makeup chair and shoot the breeze all the time.

So, is Shiloh infatuated with Sam?   What does he ultimately want from her?

COBY:  Yes, but he wants a lot. (Laughs) There’s a lot of backstory to him and what really brought him to Port Charles.  Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) and I have conversations all of the time about what this guy really is, and what his ultimate goals are, and that may change.  I think that Shiloh is a guy who has come to find his power, and the more powerful he gets, the more he wants.   You know, I’ve become a fan of General Hospital now.  I never watched the show before I got this gig.  I was a Days of our Lives guy years ago.  Don’t tell anybody. (Laughs).

Okay… we will not tell. (Laughs) Ah, sorry!  That’s got to be in the interview! (Laughs)

COBY:  All of  sudden, I will get a message from HR saying, “You’ve been great, but…” (Laughs)   But as to what Shiloh wants with Sam, you know I will read the scripts in advance, and I’ll start creating certain these things for myself in my own mind, such as: “What if he wanted to screw over Sam because of what she did to his father?”  What if it started like that, but all of the sudden he’s coming into some prominence and he wants to go after Sonny’s empire, and what if he wants to run the whole town and screw everybody…?”  I go through this whole thing.  It could literally go anywhere at any time, which is so cool about the soap world.

Without revealing what it is, do you have an idea of what the endgame is for Shiloh, or do you not?

COBY:  No, I don’t.  I think that it changes.  This is a really malleable medium, I’m coming to discover.  I think that nothing is set in stone.  I ultimately know what I want… just because I ultimately think that the foundation of the whole thing is rooted deep within this individual’s character: his emotional makeup, and how he was treated.  There is a lot of revenge going on with this guy, but there is a lot more than that.  He’s not just motivated by revenge.

Courtesy/ABC

Something had to have happened to him, of course, because you know how it works in soap operas!?  If you’re completely evil or bad, and even if you do horrendous things, and they want to keep you on the show, they have to find a way to humanize the character.  Otherwise, you’re there to cause trouble for a time, and you’re killed-off.  Shiloh’s tentacles seem more far-reaching then viewers first suspected.  He has this thing for Willow, who used to be in the cult, and now he’s got Brad under this thumb. What did you think about how much Shiloh is intertwined with and affecting the Port Charles canvas right now?

COBY:  I think that he is an apex predator.  I think that he sees certain people, and he knows how to utilize them for what he wants.  It’s kind of like a chess game.  He knows where Brad is.  He’s always wanted Willow, because it’s the one that got away, so there are certain things he uses as a means to an end, and there are certain things that I think he wants just for himself.  I think the relationships that he creates with this “higher-ups” in the town are because he knows he can utilize them, and there are some personal relationships that he keeps personal.  Shiloh has his own reasons for doing what he does, especially with Willow.  I think he was grooming her to be something.  Just the fact that she left him … really bothers him.

He doesn’t know that Willow had his child, or does he … hmmm? 

COBY:  No, not as far as we know.

If he was to know, what do you think he would do?

COBY:  Well …  you’re just going to have to watch and find out.

So, when you found out that there was this major initiation going on which included: the drugging of Kristina, the huge payment she made to be in Shiloh’s inner-circle, and how he was preying on her vulnerability, were you like, “Oh my, God! They’re really going all the way with this cult thing?”

COBY:  No.  We kind of alluded to it, and it has to go all the way.   I wasn’t surprised when I read that in the script.  This is this guy’s MO.  He gets what he wants.

Courtesy/ABC

Shiloh’s s really upset that Kristina is missing and has figured that Jason kidnapped her.  He wants her back in the fold, correct?

COBY:  He does want her back, but he wants her back for a variety of reasons … and not just the fact that she reminds him of Willow.  That’s part of it, but I personally believe that he wants her back, because as I mentioned earlier it’s all about chess pieces for him.  He sets up the prominent people in his organization, so he can set them up to expand his means and to expand his agenda … to motivate his agenda, because there is a bigger picture to all of this.  Kristina is a Corinthos and she is part of the most powerful family in Port Charles, so there is that as well.  He wants to be able to have that power hold over that towns that he is in.

Many in the audience are wondering if Shiloh having sex with Kristina was a key part of his plan.  Is that part of his ritual?  Having sex with women upon initiation into his “inner circle”… or is that a grey area?

COBY:  Here is the thing, everything is consensual with him … that’s where his charm comes into play, that’s where sense of power comes into play.  So, with these women, nothing is forced.  There is not coercion …  at all!   So, yes, its alluded that he sleeps with them, but we don’t necessarily know if that is true for all of them … or…. if it is just for the ones that he takes a liking to.   The other thing we know; is that this guy is also a megalomaniac, so it’s also an exertion of power as well.  What I tried to do with it was not make it so completely overt.   He is a bit of a jerk, but I don’t want it to overstep that boundary of being tasteless.  I think you can go too far with it, so that is one of the reasons that we alluded to the fact that it was always consensual, and people what to be with him for one reason, or another.

Courtesy/ABC

That’s why there was an important conversation written into the script with Jason, Sam, and Michael (Chad Duell) about how there is no way to nail Shiloh for a crime because he is so cagey with every move he makes.

COBY:  Yeah, you could say cagey, I say smart.

Now, Jason is his target.  Would you say there are even more underlying reasons that the obvious of why he dislikes Jason so much? Does he really have an axe to grind with him?

COBY:  I think he likes messing with people, and I think if he is unable to exert his power, or his will, or his control, over somebody, it really annoys him.  The stuff with Steve Burton is rather fun!  Shiloh can’t manipulate Jason like he can manipulate these girls, or the way he manipulates Brad, because Jason just operates on a whole different level.  I think that Shiloh finds it fascinating that he can’t get to him.   Shiloh also wants to get him out of the way, because he can’t out-muscle him.  Even if I could, the writers wouldn’t allow it. (Laughs) So, that’s never going to happen.  As Shiloh, I have to out-think him, because I want him out of the picture.   Shiloh sees Jason as an obstacle and he wants him out of the way, and he will do it by any means necessary, via him or with his kids… anyway that he can, because he can’t get at him on his level, because the playing field isn’t equal.

Courtesy/ABC

What about Shiloh’s relationship with Drew (Billy Miller)?  What does he truly feel about him? 

COBY:  I have this conversation with Frank Valentini all the time.  I think the relationship I have with Drew might be the only true relationship I have with anybody.  I think that Drew really did what Shiloh said that he did.  I think Drew really saved his life, and he does really want to pay that debt back.  I think therein really lies the contradiction with this guy.  It makes it difficult for him to operate.  I think he is conflicted on some levels because he is one guy to Drew, and he is a different guy to everybody else.  I think the way Shiloh is with Drew is real.  In his past, I think that Shiloh was completely fatalistic and reckless and didn’t care if he lived or died, and Drew did save his life, and he gave him a purpose.  However, I also think that he is such a damaged individual.  He needs that feeling of safety by exuding his power and control over others.  The writers have alluded to the fact that he has this other life, and that he was a broken individual, and turned his life around and came back from the brink of dying, of killing myself, of not caring.  So, with Drew, I don’t want to manipulate him.  I don’t want to use him.  I am truly just grateful for the fact that he allowed me another chance at life.  I love working with Billy, because that’s when I get to be human.  I’m not trying to gaslight him.  I’m not trying to get something from him – well, I’ll take that back, because I am trying to get something from him.  I’m just not trying to do it in a way that I go about it with the other characters.  There is a huge amount of respect between the two of us.

Unfortunately, Drew doesn’t remember anything about their past, which puts “pause” in believing Shiloh’s war stories.

COBY:  Yet.  (Laughs). Well, we’ve been alluding to the fact of, “What if he did this? What if he went back into his memories?  What if he were able to remember?  There are a lot of “What if’s …”  So, they keep a lot of balls in the air with this relationship.

What has it been like working with Lexi Ainsworth in this story, because she has been the main character so far drawn into the cult? 

COBY:  She’s great.  I love Lexi.  She is so easy, fun, and safe, and just a really nice person.  We sit and chat all of the time and talk about what it is that we want from each other in the scene and how it’s going to work.   Everyone is great.   Kaetlyn MacMullan is so much fun as well as Willow.  As an actor, it’s really fun when you get people who really want to play and want to go.

And, what are your thoughts on working with GH favorite, Kelly Monaco, who is key in your storyline?

COBY:  Kelly is rad.  We talk about being able to “play jazz” all of the time, which means being able to go into a scene and just riff and have a good time, because there is so much dialog that you have to learn.  I mean, that dialogue is nuts, and sometimes you forget halfway through a page-long monologue when you are at 27 pages in.  That’s when it’s wonderful to have a really good dance partner who can pick you up.  There are times where I get so off script, and I’m like, “Holy s**t!  Where am I going with this?” (Laughs) I have got really good people like Lexi, Katelyn, or Kelly who have my back and that just makes it fun.

Some actors like to watch back their work, while others don’t.  Do you check out your performances on GH?

COBY:  Yeah.  Somebody on Instagram, this wonderful fan, will take all of the Shiloh’s scenes and post them!  Shockingly, I don’t own a television, so I don’t watch the show that way.

Do you make changes or adjustments once you see your work?

COBY:  Not really.  I made a decision to keep it real low-key with this, and just try to play everything real.   The other thing is I had never done anything like this before in my career.  I was so intimated by this whole thing, that it was like, “Alright man.  Just get in and listen.  Listen to what your scene partners are saying to you.”  In my approach, I am trying to be as still as I can possibly be and let whatever that person is saying motivate my responses and my actions.  If I watch my work, I’m like, “Yeah, that makes sense to me; I like that.  That’s something that this individual would do.”  Shiloh controls every situation that he is in, and even when he is introduced to new characters, he doesn’t wait to be introduced, he’ll just walk up and say, “Hi, I’m Shiloh!  What’s new with you?  How’s it going?” (Laughs) He kind of disarms them in every scene he is in.

Photo: IMDB

Soap fans first saw you on The Young and the Restless in your stint as Andrew working alongside Eileen Davidson (Ashley).  How was that experience for you?

COBY:  Eileen was unreal.  She was really cool, because none of this phased her.  She had been doing daytime so long that it was just a thing to her.  I’d sit there and read my scripts over and over and over again, but she just knew how to do it.  It was so easy for her, that it made it easy for me.

In a broad stroke, what would you tells the fans to look forward to with Shiloh?

COBY:  Well, Shiloh is going to continue his agenda.  He is going to have to go about it in a different way.  There are things going down right now (and I won’t spoil it) that are going to change the way he operates, and he is going to have to get what he wants in a different way.  Some of the people who you would have thought that he trusted, have turned against him.  It just all makes it more fun for him because this is a huge game.  Even the stuff with Sam, you may think that you know where it is going, but it may not be.  So, as much as he is enamored by Sam, he has an agenda with her.

So, what do you think will be Shiloh’s next move?  Will he blackmail Alexis to get Kristina back at “Dawn of Day”? What is his plan for Sam? Is Shiloh connected to a key family in Port Charles, but it has yet to be revealed? Who else do you think might wind up in the cult? Finally, are you enjoying Coby’s performance on GH?
