GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt Dies, Josslyn Breaks Up with Cameron, Ava Finds Out Esme is Pregnant

Courtesy/ABC

Wednesday’s General Hospital featured a heartbreaking death and an emotional break-up.  Although fans knew that Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) was leaving the daytime soap opera, we all thought that she would exit the canvas alive, especially given the set-up of her goodbye/birthday party, and that Britt was leaving those she loved behind to go live out her days with a new identity why she battled Huntington’s Disease.

However, the surprise was on us.  When Britt returned to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother Liesl (Kathleen Gati), she collapses. Eventually, Britt starts coughing up blood and Liesl finally realizes she needs to call 911.  But, it’s all too late.  Britt tells Liesl she won’t make it to the hospital as she was poisoned by ‘The Hook’.  As she draws her last breaths, Britt asks her mother to hold her.   The scenes featured touching performances by Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud.

Later, Liesl is alone at the hospital and Scott (Kin Shriner) joins her, and that is when Scott learns Britt dies.  He phones Nina.  Meanwhile, Liesl says one final emotional goodbye to Britt.

In another tearjerker. Josslyn (Eden McCoy) realizes she has to break up with Cam (William Lipton) tonight, especially after having sex with Dex (Evan Hofer).  She says it was wrong of her to give into her feelings for Dex, without breaking up with Cam, first.  Joss heads to Kelly’s with Dex outside for protection from ‘The Hook’.  Inside, an emotional Joss tells Cam things have changed between them, and that they can’t go back to how they were.  She apologizes to a gut-punched Cam but she’s not in love with him anymore.  Cam tells her they cannot go back to being friends.  Eden McCoy and William Lipton were excellent in these break-up scenes.

At GH, Esme (Avery Pohl) apparently has some form of amnesia from her hypothermia and can’t remember her name, that she was pregnant or where she was.  Is it another trick … or did Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) just get off scot-free for their roles in kidnapping her?

When Ava (Maura West) arrives at GH and learns that Esme is pregnant, Nikolas approaches her so they can have a word in private.  Then, in front of Laura (Genie Francis), Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and more, Ava asks Nikolas if he is Esme’s baby daddy, to which he replies, “Yes”.    Then, as only Ava can do, she hauls of and slaps him as his mother looks on in horror over the entire situation!

So, were you shocked that GH decided to kill off Dr. Britt Westbourne? What did you think of the break-up scenes between Josslyn and Cameron? Now that Ava knows Esme is pregnant with Nikolas’ child, what do you hope she does next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section, but first, check out Josslyn trying to let Cameron down easy that only backfires on her in the clip from today’s GH below.

Don’t forget she left the show on her own, she wasn’t fired but I think she could have left another way, leaving it open for her to return. This is too final

She apparently is happy with her ending. She did a short interview and explained that even back in 2009 I think it was, she was interested in other work and had no intention of coming back to GH. When she did the most recent time, it was supposed to be temporary but she decided to stay longer because she wanted to do the Jason/Britt story. She also stated she’s “in love” and her boyfriend lives in the UK and he can’t live in the States at this time, so they’ve been going back and forth a lot. I don’t know… Read more »

First: the acting on today’s episode was PHENOMENAL!!!! Great performances from Eden McCoy, William Lipton, Kathleen Gati, Kelly Thiebaud, Maura West and Genie Francis!!!! Disappointed the rumors turned out to be true and Britt is dead ): The rumor I heard had her saving Nikolas – which would have been more poignant – rather than Josslyn. The show is so strange – loved the acting and the overall episode, but am not crazy about the decisions the show is making with its storytelling decisions. Loved Ava’s slap of Nikolas’s childish foolish face! (; Loved Laura’s reaction to learning that her… Read more »

I dont think Heather hooked all the victims. I think she was somehow trying to protect Esme or something in her twisted mind. Its too neat … Too much to ask that Heather could be escaping from a maximum security mental facility, murdering people with blood everywhere, and slipping back in undetected. If it is Heather, its just bad writing. Sorry to say. Though the acting was great, I wasnt expecting Britt to die. This show is SO dark right now! There is no balance of love or humour or campy escapism!! Lighten up!! What does this show have against… Read more »

JJ…One time I can agree with you on all counts…. I don’t think Heather was the only “hook.” She only recently found out Esme was her daughter. And we’re did she get the poison? You’d think GH would learn not to kill off a character like Britt. Instead think of a story where she survived with the help of Liesl in the lab. Hadn’t thought about all of the children lost over the years. Add Sasha’s Liam to the list. And hopefully not Willow’s baby. Way too much violence. And now Sonny’s going to get tough again. What happened to… Read more »

Rose, I agree completely. Terrific acting aside, these recent tawdry tales are symptomatic of what’s ailing soaps. There’s too much darkness without balancing light. Even the holiday episodes seem to have a pall over them, like you can never relax and just enjoy them — there’s always a dreadful shoe ready to drop. The killing of Britt (though we realize soap characters are rarely dead) was a dreadful miscalculation. Who, exactly, was hoping for that? No one I know or anything I’ve read in these posts. Just sloppy writing in an effort to wring tears. For me, it just produced… Read more »

Soaphound…That’s why I suggested writers could have written a storyline where Liesl go back to her old ways in the lab when she was “bad” Mutter, take Finn with her who solved another mystery cure, and together find something to help Britt when Liesl and Finn found out she had Huntington’s. Or at least a longer, less symptomatic life. So instead of killing Britt off, she could have gone for a long recuperation. And the been available the GH at a later date. And we could still have a few tears. See, that wasn’t so hard. Don’t kill off our… Read more »

Yes, Rose—I have been reciting this litany from the inception—- only because she appeared suddenly!!
Heather is NOT the original hook. Rory is—by someone else’s order. It’s not a sacrosanct idea, but very possible and probable.
JJ makes the best point—-Heather was afraid Esme would be caught as the Hooker and, therefore, Heather posed as the Hooker to waylay the focus off her daughter.

Guest

Celia…I was still trying to figure it out at three in the morning. I think the writers are, too. No, Heather is not the original hook. And Rory is still suspicious. And the dead guy on the floor in the apartment where he was hooked. But like you and JJ I do think Heather is trying to protect Esme or get revenge for her since she found out she was her daughter. And now that she and Ryan have found out Esme is pregnant, watch out! But somehow she found poison to put on the Britt “hook.” How? Since before… Read more »

I agree with you about the parents and kids. It’s so sad to think of all of Monica’s and Liesl’s kids being dead, Scott’s three, Sam’s two, Ava, Sonny and Carly, Nina, Epiphany, Willow, Bobbie, Mac and Felicia all losing one.

And please! they better not bring in a never-before-mentioned third kid for Liesl. That would be too much!

OG Steve

Sam’s two? The newborn she conceived with Sonny passed away. Heather switched Danny at birth, but Sam got him back. What other child did she give birth to passed on?

You could add Heather (Franco) and Marshall to that list, although Tommy was never a seen character.

Agreed that another never mentioned child for Liesl would be wrong. They’ll just play her more with Nina as she’s a more of a mother to her than Madeline ever was.

Britt’s death at the hands of a serial killer is reminiscent of OLTL offing Gabrielle with the Music Box serial killer. A (mostly) reformed prior bad girl turned into a rootable character played by a really good actress.

Well, that’s not exactly true. She made statements to the fact that she could do both shows. As far as I know, her character on Station 19 is “recurring” and probably wouldn’t even be anything close to a full time job. It would have been completely reasonable for Britt to disappear for a few weeks while she’s filming Station 19. You could have wrote her disappearance right into the script as “experimental treatments for Huntington’s Disease” which would of course be somewhere in Europe, because the big pharma driven FDA wouldn’t have approved them in the US. Furthermore, Station 19… Read more »

Todays episode is one they should submit for the Best Daytime Drama Emmy consideration. I’m sure I speak for many on how much we are going to miss KT and Britt Westbourne. There’s no better soap character than a (mostly) reformed bad girl. My soap heart ached today as Britta died in her mutter’s arms. Please give Kathleen Gati an Emmy for being the true definition of an outstanding supporting character. There’s quite a few viewers out there who despise Joss, but Eden McCoy has grown into a darn good soap actress. Her breakup scene with the almost always remarkable… Read more »

I felt sorry for Cam, but wasn’t he a little clueless? Poor kid, which is how he seems to me. Joss has been outgrowing him for months and as far as Esme and Cam, she’d eat him for lunch.

OG Steve
Guest
OG Steve

Violet
Yes, Cam was rather clueless. William
Lipton went recurring to rightly concentrate on his college studies. This might impact the amount of scenes he can film, thus we don’t always get a focus on Cameron.

An amnesiac Esme could be softer and friendlier. It would be similar to the Liz/Franco pairing that surprisingly worked.

Harry
Guest

Cameron isn’t so much clueless as he is moral. He’s so good he can’t fathom his childhood sweetheart and present girlfriend would betray him. There’s no love between Joss and Rex- it’s all predicated upon sex(which interestingly enough, rhymes with Rex). I don’t blame Joss for having an aggressive libido but I do blame her for being a gigantic hypocrite. She has railed time and time again about Sonny cheating on her mother and then she proceeds to cheat on Cameron, who certainly deserved better. She has also raged about Sonny not following the law of the land and yet… Read more »

About Joss and Cameron breakup. They are young, we saw it coming, it happens. And you really never saw them together much anymore except for makeup sex. And while I may be a bit of a prude, I don’t like younger people getting into sex either, but Joss isn’t a slut as some have said, or like Carly.. Hope she does become a doctor, and Cam finds a new love.even though pickings of that age group are slim.

You are a bit of a prude if you think college students aren’t having sex, BUT I agree that Joss isn’t a slut. That’s ridiculous. She IS a raging hypocrite. But that’s most of the people on the show.

Joss isn’t a slut… though she might be a brotherphucker.

Still think “Dex” is Morgan with a rebuilt face & scrambled brain. Because if he’s not, then he’s just another pointless newbie like Cody.

OG Steve
Guest
OG Steve

That Morgan theory should’ve went out the window once Dex and Joss hit the sheets. Soaps may show unknown siblings accidentally kissing but never taking it all the way.

To be long term viable, Dex should be somehow connected to the GH canvas. Initially there was speculation he was AJ’s son, but without Monica around to play those beats, that’s less likely now. Some theorized Ric Lansing as his dad, but that opens up a different path with a character not seen on screen in years. It’ll probably be something out of left field.

Well there was the Tony & Renee story on Days back in 1982. Of course Renee didn’t know she was Stefano’s daughter until after they had already done the deed. And then they tried to back out of it by claiming that Stefano wasn’t Tony’s bio-father, a fact that they changed back and forth at least 666 times over the years, before finally saying that Stefano was not only Tony’s father, but also his “twin” cousin Andre’s father, shortly before Stefano died. Renee, of course was long forgotten by then, having been murdered by Andre in 1982. I just don’t… Read more »

I definitely agree there has to be something more to Dex. And yes, Michael seems more out for revenge against Sonny than when AJ was murdered. While he’s not “dead-dead” like AJ, Emily, Georgie, and (apparently now) Britt, I just don’t see Morgan returning unless the show is cancelled somewhere down the road. Sonny has a bus filled of children already that take up enough B/C level storylines. They’ve also stopped mentioning Morgan even when the subject of death comes up. And please, no long-lost children by Brenda or click-boom Lilly returning from the dead with a son – that… Read more »

Yeah, reversing “clink boom” would never happen. And I’m reasonably certain the whole regrettable Teddy Balkan storyline cleared the decks of any possibility that Brenda could have any “little Sonnys” running around. My main reason for hanging on to the “Dex is Morgan” idea is the way they pushed him into the canvas is nearly identical to how they pushed “Jake Doe” into the canvas when we all believed he was Jason. Which he was… as far as he knew (due to the brain mapping). There was also a big anvil dropped when Michael told Dex that he thought Sonny,… Read more »

I get your thought process, and perhaps these writers thought about it originally and changed their minds (like they’ve been doing quite a bit). I’m sure Esme was originally supposed to be Felicia’s daughter and Heather was not the original Hook. Once the decision was made to make Cody Mac’s son, it was too far fetched to give Felicia a long-lost child at the same time.

The chemistry between Evan Hofer and Eden McCoy might have played into their decision as well.

Harry

It’s not that Joss is a slut, it’s that she’s a HUGE hypocrite, just like her mother. She’s constantly wagging her finger while caterwauling about law and order and morality. In a span of two hours, Joss managed to betray Cameron and leave the scene of a crime. Joss left Britt, who just saved her life, alone on the docks because Sex, er, I mean Rex, told her to do so.

Harry…None of us are perfect. I guess I’m letting a young woman grow into who she is going to be. And not like Carly I hope. I can see her going with Dex. He is always going to protect Joss if he can. Plus, Sonny’s orders. There can be an adrenaline rush after the experience like the “hook.” And it could lead to sex. But give her credit for at least officially, in person, breaking up with Cam. As I said before, it’s been coming for a while. And she stood by Trina. But you don’t leave a wounded Britt… Read more »

I still think Dex is Sonny’s son by his old boss’s daughter, forget her name. I think Cody will become more interesting when it finally comes out that he really is Mac’s son and Cody’s been withholding the true DNA results.

I believe that Lily Rivera is the name you’re looking for. And Lily was definitely pregnant when she was blown up in a limo bombed by her own father. But that scene was so iconic, that they wouldn’t dare try to undo it. There’s also the fact that Sonny had a “near death experience” where he somehow made it to Heaven where he met Lily and she confirmed that her son was there with her. Also, if that kid had lived, he would be older than Michael by a couple years, from my fuzzy Devil memory, and Dex appears to… Read more »

I’m one of a very few that likes Cody,just wish I knew more about him. The thing with the necklace was lousy, but I know he truly cared for Britt and you can see the yearning he has for a dad when he’s with Mac. I know he’s done something years ago that Dante took the blame for and I’m sure Sam will figure that out. He also likes kids and animals so that’s a plus for me, but I’d call the ASPCA if I could about keeping that poor horse inside the studio like that, makes me sick.

Oh boy, Celia — Dex can’t be Morgan. Morgan had a KILLER physique, hotter than, well, use your imagination. I actually like Dex from the neck up (nice smile, great hair) but the poor guy just can’t adapt a bigger frame so what to do? Cody? Even with the minor cleanup, I can’t stomach him. Poor Felicia, actually asking to hug him… I felt bad for her. I think I even heard the horse snicker during that barn scene.

Oh, I know, Soaphound—Morgan was a combination of Adonis and David ( ever been to Florence?) LOL–no fig leaf there. LOL. Dex does have a gorgeous face, but….his head is too big for his body—it’s a personal thing, I guess–I like broad shoulders on a guy. However, it is a soap, so…..he could be Morgan…. It’s the idea of Joss having sex with her brother which turns me off–but, it does happen in real life ( puke). Hofer is a truly good actor, and oortrays that aura of mystery surrounding Dex, very well. LOL– you really know how to start… Read more »

AMCforlife…Re my being a bit of a prude. I was brought up you didn’t have sex before you got married. I think that’s why several classmates I knew got married right after they graduated high school…if they didn’t go to college/university. Then it increasingly got tempting to get “corrupted.” And there were no birth control pills then. And shame on Sally Spectre and either Nick or Adam on Y&R for not practicing safe sex. :)))

And we both come from Italian families for “the talk” among other things. But the community and schools reinforced it.

I don’t like that they killed off Britt but they did write her into a corner when they gave her Huntington’s. The 1/4/23 air show was brilliant on some many levels with everyone bringing their A game. I think I cried during most of the scenes, especially those with Britt and Liesl and Joss and Cam.

A sad start to the new year but magical performances that prove once again that GH has some of the best actors in the business and when it all comes together GH is stellar!

Yes, yesterday’s episode was brilliant and Emmy worthy – but on the other hand the show constantly makes bad long-term decisions and killing off Britt permanently was such a decision. The acting ensemble of GH is the very best of the four remaining shows by far!

Agreed. I was bawling when Britt was singing the awesome duet with Brad as I knew they were going to kill her off after that. The duet was magical and both of them were realistic as BFFs.

Kelly was on contract since she returned in the Summer of 2020. She came back at that point as GH was one of the first tv/movie productions back up and running.

I appreciated the stellar acting and pathos! Hate to see them kill off Britt. But the writers had me fooled, since she was set to leave with fake passports and ID…then the dreadful realization she was a victim of the hook! NOOOO!

People complain when favorite characters die and when non-essential characters die in soap storylines. The viewer passion that results – tears, anger, denial – is testament to the success of this moment of time. I applaud all involved for the well done entertainment and look forward to the fallout of what grows from it!

I hate that Esme is suffering amnesia because I was hoping that she’d spill the beans on Elizabeth and Nicholas.

Why did Kelly leave? I think her storyline was just getting good! The current storyline about the ‘hook’ is not plausible to me. People were being murdered before Heather came back, so to credit her with all the killings is a little far-fetched. Really don’t like Esme/Nikolas storyline at all. Esme is another Nell and Nikolas is a little unhinged with his obsession over the baby. Just not believable to me. Please get rid of this storyline. Almost makes me want to stop watching, but of course, I can’t. Have to see how this all turns out.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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…’ ”
