GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt’s Birthday Bash Kicks-Off as New Year’s Fast Approaches

Courtesy/ABC

So, just how did our party planners, Brad (Parry Shen) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) fare in making Britt’s (Kelly Thiebaud) birthday party a rousing success?  On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, we got a taste of the shindig complete with shirtless bartenders and waiters, a drag queen, and some major karaoke thrown in for good measure.

When Britt arrives to the Haunted Star, she thanks Maxie for making everything looks so fabulous and thanks Brad for the hottie waiters! After Austin (Roger Howarth) arrives, he shares a private moment with Britt.  He hopes she is reconsidering her plans to ditch her own party and leave town never to be heard from again.  Britt clarifies for Austin that she is not running away, she’s making a graceful exit.  She reveals that her plans is to simply slip away when the countdown to midnight begins with her one-way ticket to destiny.

Next. a drag queen takes over the festivities for a moment, letting all the guests know that it’s time for everyone to hit the dance floor. Britt continues to give kudos to Brad and Maxie for making this a night she will never forget.

Liesl (Kathleen Gati) approaches Austin and thanks him for being a good friend to Britt. Next, she warns Britta to not overdo the dancing and wear herself out.  Britt tells her Mutta that tonight is all about having fun.

When Britt runs into Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nina (Cynthia Watros), she lets Sonny know she is aware he knows about her prognosis with Huntington’s Disease.  In a touching moment, Sonny tells Britt that Jason would have wanted her to life live to the fullest.

Now, we can’t have a party without Brad and Britt performing a karaoke number, now can we? Next, the besties perform George Michael and Aretha Franklin’s duet, “I Knew You Were Waiting.”  Kudos to Kelly Thiebaud and Parry Shen for that performance.

Later, when everyone gathers around Britt’s birthday cake, it’s time for her to make a wish, but she is too moved to tears to do so thus far.  What will she wish for?

From the looks of things with ..  “Sprina” about to kiss on New Year’s Eve … Michael (Chad Duell) ready to lower the boom on Sonny … Esme (Avery Pohl) trying to get out of Wyndemere … the complex mess involving Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Finn (Michael Easton), and Britt’s final goodbyes to those she loves, it looks like Friday’s episode could bring tears and more fears to Port Charles.  Stay tuned.

So, what have you thought of Britt’s birthday bash thus far? Will Cody (Josh Kelly) show up next? Comment below.  But first check out Britt and Brad’s duet of “I Knew You Were Waiting”.

Kelly and Parry really did a fine job with that song. Impressed that it continued after the commercial break. I will miss seeing the Brad & Britt friendship onscreen – two one-time town pariahs that are always fun and caring together. Brad needs a new love interest – and wouldn’t Demetrius be an interesting choice (as he’s kind to, but not interested in Esme). Wardrobe deserves kudos for the outfits (two great days in a row for Maxie). That’s the most extras we’ve had in a scene in quite a while. Budget might not have allowed for other hospital staff… Read more »

I loved this episode albeit I am really sad that Kelly is leaving the show ): She and Parry Shen did a great job with “I Knew You Were Waiting For Me”. The party looks to be a fun one! I am concerned about the character of Brad – how will he fare going forward as far as screen time when most of his scenes have been with gal pal Britt? I love Parry and want him on more often! The show needs to tell us who the hook killer is at this point. We need for Esme to escape… Read more »

I adore Parry also, Richard. Forget these dull “leading man” types… I think Brad is really sexy. He actually has a sense of humor, style, energy, and, of course, great hair. Why can’t they find a great guy for him? We can deep-six deadbeats like Michael, Drew, Cody, Austin, and Finn to accommodate his salary. I hope Britt will make a spectacular return someday…

Was a fantastic episode from everyone involved, but especially Kelly. I am SO going to miss her.

Ditto! I’m super happy for Kelly and the upswing in her romantic real life, but man am I going to miss her! She can make a simple line like “Hello Mutter” and make it something more with a different smile (she’s got so many great ones!!!) and a glimmer in her eye(s) (her eyes speak a la gauge all of her own!); there’s just something smart, funny and all around inclusively appealing to so many! For instance, I am a straight white lady in her late 40’s and I’m not ashamed that I have a friend crush on her! If… Read more »

It was a wonderful party, except we knew Britt/ Kelly was more than making a graceful exit. I will miss her. If I could have added more to the party it would be that we got to hear Liesl sing the song again she sang at he Nurses Ball. It was a show stopper. And that Ryan Paevey/ Nathan would take some time from his Hallmark schedule so GH could have a picture with his sister Britt, or at least allow his picture to be drafted onto one with Britt for the photo collage.

When they switched from Kelly’s personal pictures to the photos featuring cast members, one of the first was a Nurses Ball picture of Britt and Nathan.

While it was fun seeing Kelly’s childhood photos, Britt definitely did not have the American suburban upbringing that was depicted in those photos.

Nice that there was a pic of Britt & Epiphany. Would’ve been hilarious if they had one when she barbecued the doll with Mac & Felicia looking in in horror.

OG Steve…You have a quick eye catching Britt with Nathan. And glad they had her with Epiphany. Another person who will be missed.

I really enjoyed seeing the photos and knowing it was actors, cutting up in personal moments and enjoying their work with each other. Not just acting!

I’ll miss Britt and Kelly’s beautifuly energetic talent on GH. Best of luck to her!

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.

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.

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…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.
