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


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 same contention which makes G.H. more interesting because Sonny’s character is always strengthened and the other mob element is weak ; the way that Julian’s character was written. Also , when new characters enter the show , they follow in the footsteps of the longer running characters by disliking someone because the other people dislike them. The shows don’t give people the opportunity to get to know people and decide for themselves. I want the writers to give Britt time as Chief of Staff and to give Cyrus time as Head of G.H. . They give Sonny time to do as he pleases. Let’s go Britt!

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 happen in the meantime. I would also like to say Felix for the head nurse but he’s got too much heart and integrity to go along with any of the crap that would be asked of him.

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 that ABC let one of the only execs who cared about legacy characters exit and left Frank Valentini run the ship without any objection.

You may be confusing Valentini with Jill Phelps.

Frank has brought back (all before Varni replaced Brian Frons):
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 presences in story this week.

Back when Jill was running the show, actresses over 40 were never driving story. While There may be certain issues with Frank’s showrunning, focus on women over 50 is not one of them.

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??

I love me some Britt, but this sounds like a cartoon.

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 his “final moments” scenes. The flash-forward scenes with Joss made little sense and were a waste of the audience’s time.

On the positive side…
The flashback of Robert and Holly was unexpected and nostalgic. Kudos to Frank for showing that, this having to pay Emma Samms for the episode. Robert actually having his own mini-storyline is also a plus.

Lisa LoCicero is knocking it out of the park recently. Wally Kurth has shined as Ned is once again a renewed focus. Hope that remains as he now will be splitting filming time with DAYS.

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 that the writers.. who had all these months to THINK… and this is how he goes out… hosting an emmy show for the corinthos

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.

Oh my gosh, that’s right. That is Robin’s old hairdo! How funny.

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 emotional scenes, and instead the whole thing fell flatter than a pancake.

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 do not like her bangs

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 to her and cut .

that being said… already the electricity is crisp with fervor… Julian KNOWS that Britta is a SURE THING. so let this set in motion… I want Cyrus gone.. so Britta can solidify her presence… which she already has

this show JUST BACKED IN

except : for Max Gail emmy award nomination(s) recall… for the Corinthos’ JUST WOW

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Who Will Turn Out to Be Adam’s Father?

For weeks, General Hospital has been playing up the anxiousness, anxiety, pressures of a college student named Adam as played by Joshua Benard (the son of Maurice Benard) on the ABC daytime drama series.

Adam and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) have become friends, and along the way she seems to be attempting to put together the pieces of what is going on with this young man. In story, what we have learned as it seems that he is receiving unbelievable pressure from his mom and dad, to ensure he has the best grades in order to become a doctor.

On Wednesday’s episode, after receiving a 97 on his test in a do-over, he called his father.  We don’t hear the voice on the other line, only Adam’s.  Apparently, the father was not happy that Adam has to do a make up test, even though he received a high score.

So, where is this all leading? Is Adam suffering from bipolar disorder or mental illness? Is he talking to anyone on the phone? Or, is he the son of a current character on the canvas, or a new or incoming villain?

Much speculation has been made that Adam might turn out to be the bio-son of Mr, Brennan (Charles Mesure), presumed to be the nefarious ‘Pikeman’. However, Adam had said that his parents were both doctors. Others are assuming he could turn out to be another child of Sonny Corinthos, but Sonny doesn’t know it, and he was raised by some over-achieving well-to-do parents.

Looks like next week, Josslyn and Trina (Tabyana Ali) may be on the case to try to figure out what is really going on with the guy.

So the questions become … do you think this will turn out to be just a random story featuring Joshua Benard? Do you think Adam till be tied-in more to the Port Charles canvas?  Is Joss spending too much time with Adam and and not enough time with Dex (Evan Hofer)?

In addition, Joshua just turned 19-years-old this week on December 5th.  Shout out to another year around the sun.

Share your theories on Adam. what you think is going on with him, and who could be his father, via the comment section. Now below, check out the scenes between Adam and Joss from Wednesday’s GH.

Kimberly McCullough Shares Remembrance of the Late TV Legend Norman Lear on the Set of ‘One Day At a Time’

Television legend, Norman Lear passed away on Wednesday at the age of 101 years old. The comedy genius who created, wrote and produced some of the greatest sitcoms of all time died of natural causes at his home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Lear’s body of work included: All in the Family, One Day at a Time, Maude, The Jeffersons and Good Times, Sanford & Son, plus the soapy, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

General Hospital’s beloved Kimberly McCullough (Robin) has been working as a director in the television industry for years now and upon learning the news of Lear’s passing, shared a very touching moment via her Instagram that stayed with her through her directorial career. McCullough had been a director on the reboot of One Day at a Time that featured EGOT winner, Rita Moreno.

McCullough expressed: “My hat goes off to your, sir Norman. What a wonderful life you lived. In my very first directing job, only 6 weeks after having a baby, I was feeling fragile and not quite ready to get back to work. On the set of One Day At A Time, you squeezed my chin and said ‘Look at you! A baby directing our show.’ It wasn’t condescending at all. In fact you seemed thrilled by how far we’d come in the industry, giving young women a seat at the table. I replied, ‘I’m not a baby. I just had a baby.”‘

McCullough added: “You gave me nod of approval saying, ‘Even better. You let me know if you need anything.’ That meant the world to me. Thank you for your service of the television industry, of our country and being a stand up human. #ripnormanlear”

In a previous post pictured with Norman Lear, Kimberly shared: “Thank you changing the world with your storytelling. Honored to say I’ve been able to work with you. One time I heard you say “but where is the HEART of the story?” I have a feeling you’ve asked that question a lot…”

The Lear family also put out this statement on the death of the iconic TV genius: “Thank you for the moving outpouring of love and support in honor of our wonderful husband, father, and grandfather,” the Lear family said in a statement. “Norman lived a life of creativity, tenacity, and empathy. He deeply loved our country and spent a lifetime helping to preserve its founding ideals of justice and equality for all. Knowing and loving him has been the greatest of gifts. We ask for your understanding as we mourn privately in celebration of this remarkable human being.”

Tonight, across all network television, an in memoriam card will air at 8PM ET/PT to pay tribute to Lear and acknowledging his influence in the medium.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What are Your First Impressions of Charles Mesure as ‘Mr. Brennan’?

There’s a new villain in town and things are about to get turned upside down for Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) as General Hospital circles back around to the looming mysterious ‘Pikeman’ story and who was the target of the shooting at the Metro Court that put Curtis in a wheelchair.

Last Friday, and into yesterday’s Tuesday, December 5th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, viewers were introduced to “Mr. Brennan” who has to turn out to be the dastardly “Pikeman.”

If his portrayer looks familiar, actor Charles Mesure has appeared in numerous television series and film roles including: Once Upon a Time, CastleThe MentalistDesperate HousewivesBones and more. Mesure is also British-born, but moved to Australia when he was younger, accounting for the fabulous accent “Mr Brennan” has on GH.


In story on GH, as Sonny was telling “Mr. Brennan’s” minion, Hume that he would no longer run Pikeman’s shipments through his territory, the guy showed up at Kelly’s Diner with an ominous message for Carly (Laura Wright), although she doesn’t know it.

On Tuesday, in his room at the Metro Court, Brennan is upset that Sonny won’t work with him and tells Hume he plans to stay in Port Charles to make sure the shipments to Canada are ready to go. We also learn that apparently the head of the WSB has taken a leave of absence. Brennan reveals that being the director has its benefits. He then says he got rid of Frisco and he can work remotely and now things are falling into place.

Hume asks Brennan who the intended target is in all of this, and he says both Sonny and Anna. “Brennan’s” goal is to force Sonny’s hand to continue the shipments and more. Meanwhile, Curtis on the case as to who is behind his shooting and more.

So, what has been your impressions thus far of GH’s newest baddie as played by Charles Mesure? Let us know in the comment section below.
