GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt is the New Chief of Staff; But Who is the New Head Nurse?

Courtesy/ABC

On Friday’s General Hospital, the staff at the hospital was in for a shock when none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) waltzed in and announced that she was in the new Chief of Staff.  That left Finn (Michael Easton), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) and Portia (Brook Kerr) reeling.

Apparently, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) believes in Britt, and since he is now running the hospital and already pink-slipped Monica (Leslie Charleson) and Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), putting someone with a sketchy past in that position, who might do his bidding for him, was the perfect move for the drug lord.

Britt tells the crew that she is horrified by the mismanagement that has been happening at GH.  She then tells Elizabeth and Epiphany to check their new schedules as outlined by the new head nurse.  When everyone fires back at Britt that Epiphany is the head nurse, Britt reveals that it is Cyrus’ decision since he is now Chairman of the Board at GH.

Then, in a shocking moment for each of them, Elizabeth finds out that Epiphany has been put into an administrative position, where she will not be with the patients, while Liz has been cut back to only two shifts a week demoted to the satellite crew.

Finn is also in hot water as Britt tells him they need to set up a meeting, while Portia’s fate seems to be that she is safe, when Britt says she believes in her, and so too, does Cyrus.

What did you think of Britt arriving on the scene as the new Chief of Staff?  Who do you think might be GH’s new head nurse? Share your thoughts on the staffing changes via the comment section below.

I love it! General Hospital has too long shown favoritism. When Nelle didn’t want her child to have the surgery , Monica and Bobbie did hook and crook to make everything go the way Michael and Carly wanted it. I dislike that shows make sure that characters lean towards one side because that person is a friend or relative; however , the other side has everyone against them. When Britt first entered the Soap , I didn’t like her . Yet , since that time , I like that she brings some opposition to the show. Plus, Cyrus adds that… Read more »

Boop I usually agree with the things you say but this time I am very confused, especially by your last couple of sentences. You want to give Cyrus and the Britch more time to do exactly what, ruin GH by running drugs through it or only saving lives that Cyrus says it’s o.k to? These two people are dispicable and Cyrus is a murderer and drug runner. No way should be have been able to get a hold on GH. Of course it will be saved in the end but it is not entertaining in the least watching what will… Read more »

I’m sad we they got rid of Nathan Varni. I’m sure very few fans knew he fought Frank tooth and nail when it came to supporting the vets of GH. With Nathan out, Frank has clearly taken the reigns over 100% and he’s trying to stuff as many young faces down our throats as humanly possible. This is a sad state of affairs, I cringe to think which actress over 50 will be next to be fired or trimmed back to recurring. No one is fighting for the fans of the show we once all loved. It’s a real shame… Read more »

You may be confusing Valentini with Jill Phelps. Frank has brought back (all before Varni replaced Brian Frons): Bobbie Felicia Ned Scott Kevin/Ryan Lucy Robert Anna (contract) Laura (contract) Yes, the cast is huge (32 now on contract counting Brando & Britt who were formerly recurring.) That definitely needs some trimming. While Anna’s story sucks right now and Genie Francis is wrapping up her vacation, Alexis, Carly and Nina are all 50+ and driving story. Although I pointed out that Monica and Bobbie should have had their hospital employment issue dealt with on screen, Ned, Olivia and Robert were major… Read more »

I like Britch, but this whole idea is ridiculous….

Cyrus the Virus is attempting to sanitize his reputation by making himself over as a “respectable businessman” & hospital administrator, so the first thing he does, after getting that job, is to fire the long term chief of staff (whose family practically built the hospital, no less) and replace her with…..

**drum roll please**

…. A CONVICTED FELON???? (who also happens to be the daughter of the most famous international terrorist this side of Osama Bin Laden, no less)

Yeah, on what planet was this a good idea??

Should be a fun ride. I’m sure it’s one that will eventually come to an end with Monica being put back in charge, but in the meantime, I’m sure Britt will stir things up. Now if they could just get Brad out of jail…

To answer the question – perhaps Felix? This whole firing of Monica and Bobbie falls flat because neither one of these ultimate legacy characters were shown as it happens. A scene of Monica walking out of the hospital and arriving back to family at the house Alan gave to her would make it more impactful. Friday’s show was wasted with the amount of time given to the fake bond between Mike & Joss. Max Gail has done a great job acting in spite of some questionable writing. Because he is a recast, there’s no flashback scenes to add value to… Read more »

IAM so glad you mentioned the scenes with Joss and Mike. Not only was it boring but not true, none of it ever happened. To me it just pointed out to Mike that he was on the way out and her saying goodbye over and over. Is that really what a dieing person wants to be told as they are taking their last breaths? Poor Mike!

“Thank You” I thought the same thing ! I don’t remember some of these things happening ???? whew! Poor Max Gail. Sonny: his continuous lament or whatever : Mike, you do what you want to do Carly : this family has shown so much love every since Mike returned. BLECH! the only two I truly wanted Mike to come to was for Liz, her wedding scenes at the church… ROCKED . with Dante : doing any thing… they just made this grandfather/grandson so real I will MISS Max Gail… just not at the expense of the Corinthos’ I’m just stumped… Read more »

Glad we agree on this. I kept thinking poor Max, let him go he will when he’s ready, doesn’t need your permission or everyone trying to push him out the door, so to speak. Nothing we saw ever happened and the scenes with Joss predicting the future was just a whole other story.

What a shakeup! I loved this twist; the Cyrus Renault presence in Port Charles is a great umbrella story, affecting multiple characters and aspects. Plus, the fact he, in such a short time has done more than Sonny Corinthos, is exciting!

In what world does a hospital’s chairman of the board determine the head nurse, LOL?

The same hospital that does not have a railing on beds.
No hospital would have a patient in a bed without railings.
It is the law, as a matter of fact.
The liability is tremendous to have a patient fall off aff a bed.
Even in emergency rooms, there are railings on beds.
GH has cots for beds no railings- ahaa! insane.
((Britt desperately needs to do something with her hair- it’s nasty looking))

It was so absurd and insulting as a viewer that they would do this storyline with Monica and Bobbie getting fired, which you would think would be a major moment, since both have worked at the hospital for over 40 years and are beloved characters, and then not even bother having Leslie Charleson or Jackie Zeman there to do scenes reacting to it. I’m watching and I see Epiphany, Elizabeth and everyone talking about Monica and Bobbie getting fired, and I’m like, wait a minute, did I miss an episode or something? They could have been some really dramatic and… Read more »

Monica and Bobbie getting fired is to keep them offset keeping them safe, I believe..
They both are quite old and need to be protected from covid19..
they will gloriously return when it’s safe for them.
(probably end of 2021–)

They have both filmed since the show returned to production. Not sure what age “quite old” is supposed to represent.

Well, Monica is 75 and Bobbie is 63 if that helps. I would like to think TPTB are just watching out for their valuable senior citizens. No insult or anything wrong with that.

I smell a new character as the new head nurse. Maybe Cyrus’s daughter or Brando has a sister? It will be a baddie who will turn out to be good and go against BRITTA!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Courtesy/ABC

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?

Johnny Wactor on Brando’s GH Demise: “I Have Been Blown Away By The Reaction From The Fans, I Had No Idea That You Guys Cared So Much About My Character”

It’s been an emotional week for General Hospital viewers following the death of Brando Corbin; which meant that actor Johnny Wactor has wrapped his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

On Thursday, Wactor shared his ‘thanks’ to all the loyal GH fans who took the journey with him and his on-screen alter-ego via a video post on his Instagram account.

Johnny expressed: “It’s been a couple days since the demise of Brando Corbin in Port Charles as we know it.  And I have to tell ya, I have been so blown away by the reaction from the fans.  I had no idea that you guys cared so much about my character. I’m so grateful for the outpour of questions and support. I’ve always said, that the fans of General Hospital are the greatest fans in the world and I truly believe that and this is just further evidence of that.”

Social media was abuzz when Brando suddenly died following successful surgery after being attacked by the ‘hook’.  Some fans felt Wactor’s presence will be sorely missed; while others shared that they felt Brando was not a necessary character.

Wactor took all of the comments like a champ and in his video message added: “Whether you were excited to see Brando Corbin killed off, or outraged and have questions, man, I’m just so lucky to have been on this show, truly.”

As he concluded his ‘thank you’s’, Johnny let GH viewers know he does have some other projects that you will see him in very soon, sharing: “Thank you so much for letting me bring Brando Corbin to life.  Thank you for caring, and thank you for all the support and the well-wishes for my future endeavors, whether that’s back in Port Charles at some point, or another show, or other films … which there’s some coming.”

Lastly, Johnny added, “I’ll miss ya, and you enjoy the rest of the week.”

Watch Wactor’s heartfelt message below.

So, where do you stand with the decision to kill off Brando? Glad the character is off the canvas, or sad to see him go? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brando Dies … But Not From His Wounds

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, poor Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) was hit with yet another punch to the gut.  After losing her baby, Liam, back in December of 20201, she has now lost her husband, Brando (Johnny Wactor), in s shocking turn events that played out in Brando’s hospital room.

Finally coming to (following being ‘hooked’ by the mysterious figure) after surviving hours of surgery from his wounds, he goes coughs up blood and then goes into a massive seizure right in front of Sasha.

Panicked, Sasha calls for help, where Portia (Brook Kerr) and her team run in to try to save Brando.  Next, we get a montage of the love story of Brando and Sasha, which is never a good sign on soap operas – as it more often than not – signals the end of the line for a character.

After Portia is completely rattled by why Brando is dying when the surgery is a success, eventually he passes away.  Portia comes out of his hospital room and tells Sasha they did everything they could.  Just then, Brando’s mom, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) along with Nina (Cynthia Watros), come by and all the women are struck with heartbreaking grief.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene and asks Portia what happened and she reveals there were sudden complications.

Wanting a moment alone to say goodbye to his cousin, Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Brando to take care of Liam and Mike when he sees them in heaven. Sonny also promises to take care of Sasha and Gladys. Next, Sasha wants Sonny to go into Brando’s room with her, and they are joined by Nina and Gladys, who all stand over his bedside in tears.

Elsewhere, Portia finds Finn (Michael Easton) to look over Brando’s medical reports and case, and relates that Brando’s symptoms don’t track with what happened to him when he was brought into the ER and what happened in surgery.  She ponders if there is a more sinister explanation for his death, hoping Finn (even though he is an infectious disease doc) can help shed some light.
