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))

Too true, Su000! (and I don’t care for Britt’s hairstyle, either. It’s distracting.)

Did you guys see the comment from Robin/Kimberly M.saying that Kelly stole her job and her hairdoo? She was just kidding of course.

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!

I just saw some of the best sex… and it was with Britta; again. ie: William DeVry’ Julian.. think Tyler Christopher !!!! She’s already ROCKED General Hospital. of course, all the “Staff” is in uproar… and taking it out on Britta.. who of course, is handling it all with such aplomb. I TRULY HOPE, she’s not back for short term… because she’s already schellacked Cyrus. She’s that good of an actress. so yeah, I was surprised by ALL FB posts and this thread.. walloping Ms. Thiebaud ; hair ; bangs ; teeth . ???? !!!! Ladies please. dag! FB took… Read more »

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
