GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brad's Wife Is None Other Than Rosalie! What Did You Think Of The Twist?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital fans “officially” learned the in-story truth at the end of Friday’s cliffhanger of the ABC daytime drama series, when it was revealed that none other than Rosalie Martinez (Linda Elena Tovar) was the wife of Brad Cooper (Parry Shen!

For weeks, Brad has been troubled by a secret that he needed to confess to his husband-to-be Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes)! Thus far, Brad came forward and told Lucas he was married, and Lucas tried to understand why he was married to some guy he didn’t apparently ever love.

Brad relates to Lucas: “There were a lot of reasons why I got married, but love wasn’t one of them.”  To which Lucas said, “Then why the hell did you marry the guy?”  Brad confesses, “I never said it was a guy!”

Cue Rosalie!  In walks Rosalie on the duo’s conversation, and apparently Rosie and Brad see each other for the first time in a very long time.  Brad is completely shaken, and Lucas can see that the two of them know each other.  It is then Brad admits that Rosalie is his wife.

Watch the final moments of the episode between Brad, Rosalie, and Lucas after the jump!  Let us know: Were you surprised by the twist?  Did you think Brad was married to a woman and that it would be Rosalie?  Why do you think they got married?  Will this keep Brad and Lucas apart for months to come?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Called it a long time ago. His wife had to be someone on the canvas with a big secret that he hasn’t interacted with, and Rosalie was the only one that fit the bill.

That can’t be Brad’s big secret because it’s lame, there has to be more to this.

All this time Grossalee has been in PC and worked at GH during Nina’s rehab she never run into Brad…or seen him during the nurses ball??? This is just as lame as Ava/Denise blackmailing Nina with that cell phone picture of Nina kneeling over Silas’s body holding the knife…the police would ask why Ava/Denise did not come to them right away with the evidence and also question her to why she was there…this blackmail plot and Grossalee’s reveal to be Brads wife-who cares-we never really see these two-is the two poorest written moments under RC…jmho!!!

GH is a big hospital with about 5 or 6 wings added since I started watching the show in the 70’s. Brad is a lab tech manager and he’s hardly out mingling with the patients.

Jim is right. It’s just plain stupid and this will underscore Ron’s legacy as as head writer.

duh Jihm.. lol
if that all had happened it would not have been a shocker surprise!!

soaps are 50% BS and %50% makebelieve, nothing in a soap is real world stuff, that is why I love them! 🙂

If Nina went to the police then Franco would not be in jail, He and Scotty would not have the great scenes they had, Scotty would still be the DA (Ric and the Mayor set up for big corruption that Anna will deal with)

Nina blackmailing Ava will lead to Nina doing bad stuff on her, yup..

Nic and Hayden are are gonna be good!! 😉

I think it’s time we just stop paying attention to things until the material from the new writers start and hope they not only are better but can fix things and make us forget a lot of what we have seen. Brad and Rosalie is just so ridiculous. There are twists and unexpected surprises and then there is totally out of left field and makes no sense. You know you are in trouble when people online are saying, “well it’s possible two people can live in the same place for a year and spend a lot of time in the… Read more »

Ron may be gone but Frank V is still EP and has creative control. Shelly A who is one half of the “new” head writing team has held that position on GH with Garin Wolf in 2012. GH ratings were at a all time low them, I don’t expect much from her.

According to Jamey Giddens of Daytime Confidential, this chick’s real secret was supposed to be that she was trangendered. This was the intended story all along, but ABC nixed the idea.

Not defending the current story. Not even following a single plot on this show. And certainly not defending RC. Just trying to put it in perspective that it’s possible this was never intended to be the big reveal I guess viewers were waiting on.

Soaps, hell, most of dramatic writing relies on the minute you say something or mention something about a person, that person shows up, so that doesn’t bother me in the list. After all, as Hitchcock said, “Drama is life, with the dull bits left out.” However, I don’t think this was Rosalie’s “secret” that Nina held over her for months on end. This is clearly Brad’s “secret”. Let’s hope for a good explanation. I never noticed that in all these months Brad and Rosalie were never in the same place at the same time but it IS possible. Hell, I… Read more »

David, it’s true that characters will be talking about someone and that someone will just happen to show up. But within reason. If Carly and Sonny are talking about Michael and Avery and he shows up at the house with her to give her back, OK. Even Sam just happening to walk into the chapel when Liz was looking for a sign. Contrived but ok. We expect things like that, But it is about degrees. Here we have two people, Brad and Rosalie, who are supposedly very close, married, they have been living in the same town for 14 months,… Read more »

Matilda, once again you’re spot on right here. No one really cares about Brad the mouth breather. Lucas and Brad enjoy zero chemistry and there has been no build up to the great Rosalie reveal. As you assert, there was no foreshadowing leading up to this “great reveal” which implies they were making it up as they went along, The problem is that we all could have applauded a gay storyline if it were done right. Since this one fizzled out before it even began, this will lead some to say that gay storylines don’t work on soaps. They can… Read more »

There really are no ”major” characters, they are simply peoples favorites.. there a few vet characters and some of them have gone to recurring=call you when needed status. ”major” characters would be vets?

Sonny is upfront and a big Corinthos story on the way with Carly(Ava&Avery) Elizabeth is upfront in a big story with Jason/Jake.. Nic is upfront with the Q takeover and, Jason secret ..

Why yes there are major characters and to say otherwise is just playing make believe. Sonny is a major character, Carly is a major character, Luke was until his portrayer took his toys and went home.

I dislike all three but that doesn’t change the fact they are major characters, virtually always with their own storylines, involved in most others.

David
Guest

Whether you like the characters or not, a lot of reason why you do or don’t see a character onscreen has nothing to do with how the story is written and mostly to do with what the actor’s contract is. They all go in cycles and actors are on contract and guaranteed so many appearances. Carlivati has been known to use up all the actor’s guarentees, then resulting in them disappearing from the canvas for a few months before you see them again. I’m not defending him, but being a head writer is a monster job that even my writer… Read more »

Gone are the Irma Phillips days where the writer was in control of the show and wrote it the way he or she saw fit. I long for those days. The reason shows like All My Children and One Life To Live were so good for so long was because they had a creative head (Agnes Nixon) who wrote the show the way she envisioned it and didn’t cowtow to the network or focus groups (hell, there were none back in the 70s and 80s) like they do today.

I didn’t see this one coming, and truth be told… I just don’t care. Brad and Rosalie are both minor characters with no story, and throwing out this twist doesn’t make them more interesting, or create an interesting story. Quite honestly, I would be just fine if Brad said that he wanted to live happily ever after with Rosalie, and the two left town together, because I don’t like either of them. It’s annoying that GH feels the need to put newbies and minor characters like Rosalie, Brad, Valerie, Kiki, Sabrina, etc. on the forefront and give characters like Scott,… Read more »

Don’t think much of it–no groundwork laid–just feels like it was thrown in for a manufactured complication. Very bad writing. Rosalie looks very savvy and street smart–wouldn’t she know Brad was gay???? GMAB! Again! Feels so faulty. And who cares anyway? See, no empathy for either of these characters; thus I do not care one way or the other what happens to them.

Love Brucas! I love Brad(& Parry). He’s snarky & fun. I love the diversity on this show! I’m not surprised it’s Rosalie. I figured it would be her or somebody new coming. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that this is a “more than meets the eye” type of situation. Probably an arranged or convenience marriage. We know Brad is a Wu, but we don’t know who Rosalie is connected to…I’m betting one or both of their families are the ones making trouble for Sonny.

Ho hum— who cares. On Y&R we find out Harding killed all those people yet not a peep from this site about that development– Someone sneezes on GH and it’s news– but okay I will play along– both Rosalie and Brad had big secrets– we know Brad’s bio family had ties to PC mob, so no doubt Rosalie does too. Now that RC is no longer writing this show we can only hope the new writers will end this storyline quickly or make it better than it started out to be.

And Victor treated him like gum under his shoe when they worked together. I can see it being Cane. Of course there is still that family Victor paid off to cover up Nick injuring the young girl at his… Read more »

Who cares? Brad is a punk, has been since he first came on. Then we were told he turned good – told, though, because how would we know, or give a rats ass, since we only see him and Lucas about once every 4 weeks. Rosalie, the same, just as irrelevant, just as boring, just as disposable. Show is in serious trouble. Show is trying to rely on storylines with secondary characters, characters who are glorified day players, and if not these, then Show is concentrating on non-GH characters with no link to the GH canvas except other newbies.

Brad is not any worse than most of the characters on the show. In fact most have a rap sheet much longer. I don’t mind him. I cannot stand Rosalie & see no point to her character. There must be a reason they are keeping her around after all of this time, but I can’t imagine what that reason is.

Talk about pulling an idea out of thin air!!! My guess is that Grossalie is illegal and married the Brad-ster just for a green card.

I think a major problem with this “reveal” is that the story has only been told every other week, one day a week, and has missed so many notes that nobody really can invest in it. What a shame, since I like all three actors involved. I’ve felt like TPTB are afraid to tell this engagement story for some reason. Hopefully, under the new writers, stories will be told in an interwoven way for an extended period of time so we can invest in them. Don’t get me wrong; I love RC, but the hop-scotch story telling has made even… Read more »

If this regime wants to do something they need to clean up this mess ASAP. As much as I like Maura West, Ava cannot be redeemed. She needs to go, at least for a while. Then they need to tie up the storylines for Franco, Nina, Brad, Rosalie and I could go on….

Thats it Rob, Maura is a blast but she has been written into a corner and there is no way out. She does have to go. The PCPD might actually get to arrest someone and keep them behind bars!

What amazes me is that people keep complaining that the core characters are not being utilized. What every one needs to realize is that the “core” characters are all up there in age and really have nothing to add to the landscape of Port Charles now. Maybe a token Alzheimer’s story or an illicit affair but the days of the 80’s and 90’s are gone.

I really don’t mind this Brad/Rosalie story. Way back, it was implied that Brad came from a “mob” family. Maybe Rosalie does too. There was an Asian woman at the mob meeting that Sonny went to not long ago so that could be Brad’s adopted or biological mother. There’s been talk of a mew mobster trying to get into Port Charles so that could be it.

General Hospital

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
