GENERAL HOSPITAL: Cameron Gets a Gravesite Visit From Zander; A Very Preggers Brook Lynn Returns

Photo: ABC

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital revealed the return of Chad Brannon as Cameron Webber’s deceased father, Zander Smith, as well as the return of Amanda Setton in the role of Brook Lynn.

In story, an emotional Cameron (William Lipton) is overcome by all the loss in his life as he visits the gravesite of his biological father, Zander Smith, on the heels of losing his stepfather, Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth).  As Cameron looks at his father’s grave he goes on to say that he finally had a complete family unit for it to be taken away like everything else and everyone else he has cared about in his life including his friends, Dev and Oscar.

Cameron begins to lament what would life would be like for him, if Zander would have stuck around, instead of getting himself shot at such a young age.

 

Then, Zander appears to Cameron stating, “I get it, it’s all my fault.”  Cameron goes on to tear into Zander about the way his life ended, while Zander thinks he can still teach his son a thing or two, but Cam says he had the chance to be his dad and really blew it.  No matter what, Zander explains, “I will always be your dad.”  Zander understands that Cameron is angry and feeling all hope is lost, but tries to rally his son to not give in to that way of thinking, because he has so much potential.

Zander truly does not want to see his son give in to the same impulses that he did when he was young and that he wants Cameron to make the right decisions while at this crossroads in his young life.  As Joss (Eden McCoy) and Trina  (Sydney Mikala) show up at the cemetery, the ghost of Zander disappears.  Joss wants Cameron to stop the pity party as they all have been there, and all have lost people they love, but shares that they will get through it together. Cameron looks back and sees his father as he says he is loser just like his dad.  But, Trina and Joss tell Cam they don’t hang out with losers as Zander looks on.

Elsewhere, Brook Lynn, who is hiding outside the Q mansion, comes inside once alone with Michael (Chad Duell) and reveals she is pregnant.  Michael figures out the baby daddy is Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), but Brook Lynn is not sure if she will even tell Valentin.  Michael warns her that she will be playing with fire with Valentin if she is not truthful.

Finally, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) has realized she is in a bad, bad way with all the creepy vibes she is now getting from Peter (Wes Ramsey).  She knows she has to protect her unborn child any way she can.

So, what did you think of the scenes between William Lipton and Chad Brannon? Are you happy to see Amanda Setton back as Brook Lynn? How will Maxie get away once and for all from Peter?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Excited for Brook Lynn to come back. Hope Amanda does well, but she’s only there because Frank wanted to give his old friend from OLTL a job instead of contacting Adrianne Leon in 2019 when she was talking about coming back.

You don’t know that. And, in no offense to Adrianne León, she never lasts long in the role. I do feel as if recasting was a solid way to ensure a potential long-term return of Brook Lynn. Admittedly, however, I slightly preferred Brianna Lane in the role, so it’ll be an adjust to seeing Amanda Setton again.

Fair points. I have seen lots of evidence that Adrianne wanted to come back and was never contacted. Two of the three times she left a soap role, it wasn’t her choice. Briana was awesome as well and hopefully Amanda can do well.

Cameron (William Lipton) is an excellent actor–
He needs to pull out of GH and fly!
He can be among all the great actors if he doesn’t
fade away stereotyped in a soap opera..
And happy that Valentin will be upfront in a story, hopefully.
GH is really going onward with great stories.
Looking forward to upcoming episodes.
And–
Y&R is bad, really bad, it stinks of bad..
GH puts Y&R to shame–

I guess. Cameron seems a bit overwrought and cheesy to me.

Sorry SuOOO, but I think Days takes the prize on bad. If you don’t watch it, you aren’t missing a show that used to be really good. Very sad.I agree about Y&R. I wish I could just pull the plug on that one, but sadly haven’t got the strength.

I think Cameron “seeing” his dad was just the excuse he will use when and if he starts acting out to say like father like son. With Franco gone from his life, I expect to see a big change in Cam, and it won’t be a good one. Hope I am wrong.

The highlight of Wednesday’s memorial show was seeing Luke Spencer’s grandson (Aiden) call Scott Baldwin grandpa.

Well played by all. Kevin, Terry and Epiphany should’ve been at the memorial, but otherwise nicely done.

Actually that made me want to vomit harder than my demon employee made Linda Blair do in “The Exorcist”.

Laura sitting right next to the kid on the couch, as he calls that serial killer Frodd his “dad”??

I think it’s great that Laura & Scotty are friends, given all the history, but the total erasing of Lucky from that family is 666% dragonshit. He’s the one who should have been talking to Cameron, not the ghost of his bio-dad who was in Hell before Cam was even born.

Why should Lucky be talking to Cam, whether dead or alive? They aren’t related. I did not see Zandor, so no nothing about him, but if you say he’s in hell, must have been a bad, bad person.
I hope Iam wrong but I think they are paving the way for Cam to start acting like his dad did. I also read somewhere that he’s leaving GH, which I’d rather have than him stop being the good, loving kid we know.

Zander wasn’t a bad guy but, Jason, Sonny and Skippy (Courtney )are. Skippy killed someone and Jason framed Zander for her crime in order to save Sonny’s little sister. Zander had no money, no legal
representation or parents to defend him, so when the police zeroed in on him, he felt helpless and committed suicide by cop. I liked Zander.

Lucky was the only father Cameron ever knew from birth up until the time he was SORASed to be a member of the Frodd Fan Club.

When Aiden was born, Lucky told Cam, that while Aiden was his biological son, he would always consider Cameron to be his “first born”.

The Valentini regime has trashed Lucky’s character to prop their pet serial killer. Who is now dead, thank all that’s unholy. Time for Cam to get a visit from his real father (DNA not withstanding)

Lucky was trashed long before Frank Valentini came along.

That’s true. Garin Wolf, who was the short term head writer between Guza & the OLTL regime was the one who had a sick mission to destroy the entire Spencer family. Wolf is the one who made Lucky a crybaby who literally abandoned his family on Xmas Eve. Valentini & his former sidekick ReRon only made that worse by bringing back Lucky as part of that ridiculous exit story they wrote for Luke. The only good thing that came out of that story, is that Lucky was the one who found his son Jake and was able to bring him… Read more »

I thought it very appropriate seeing as how the kid had a no-show father and grandfather.
He was lucky, no pun intended, to have Franco and Scott, who lovingly played those parts.

Chad Brannon has aged beautifully! He’s a solid actor and when I heard he was coming back, I was hoping he was playing Zander’s long lost brother. Remember, that horrible Courtney killed her sleazy strip club boss and Jason framed Zander in order to protect Skippy. Courtney willfully went along with it. This is what led Zander to commit suicide by cop. Another reminder of why I always hated that twit Courtney (Skippy) and why I continue to hate Jason and yes, Sonny. And now Jason is now being blamed for Franco’s murder?
Good.

Nice to see Zander. He was good with Cam. Wish they had more for the actor to do to stay. Speaking of, good to see Brooke back. The girl who subbed for her did a really good job. I was hoping they could bring her back as a different character?

I do concur, Timmm. I also thought replacement Briana Lane had a nice friendship vibe with Chase. Wouldn’t mind seeing her again.

Brook Lynn seems to be putting it all out there(pun intended) to anyone who’ll listen to her pregnancy news. Also, are we sure it isn’t Julian that’s the dad?

Harry

I don’t know,Violet. But why did the prop department put an exercise bouncy- ball in Brook Lynn’s shirt? I fully expect her to give birth to a hundred pound baby.

Harry, thanks, I can always count on you for a big “belly laugh” and yes, I expect her to go into labor on the spot.

Yeah, I’m guessing they’re going to write in a “twins” storyline here. She’s way too big for that to be one kid.

How long before the brain mapping mad scientists kidnap the babies so they can see how well their procedures work on a fresh new set of identical baby brains?

I hope one of the babies will be disposable if that obnoxious brat Charlotte has any say about it. That selfish kid keeps getting worse every time we see her. First she had to share Lulu with Rocco, now God forbid, Papa will give some attention to someone other than herself.

After today, I don’t think there are ANY babies. Not the way she was being so evasive when Maxie & Britch were asking her who her OB was. What visibly pregnant woman would NOT want a doctor for her baby? Probably one who’s hiding some sort of a pillow or beach ball under her shirt, which wouldn’t give a very good ultrasound reading!

So Charlotte will probably be happy in the long run…. that is unless Brooklynn ends up stealing Maxie’s baby. Which is the type of thing that usually happens on this show (and has already happened to Maxie before.)

Amen, Violet. I’ve never liked that character. She’s been trouble from day one. My quandary over her custody would be who gets stuck with her!

Soaphound, probably a new Lulu by then or Nina, if her bad luck holds out, ha.

Now they have poor Cameron writing love songs to dead serial killers… while failing to acknowledge the fact that any musical talent he has, probably came from the only TRUE father he ever knew. And his name was not Frodd. Or Zander.

For the love of all that’s unholy, it’s time to bring back Lucky Spencer to rescue his family from the remains of Frodd Madness. If that means they have to fire every post 2012 newbie to pay Jonathan Jackson’s salary, so be it.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Courtesy/ABC

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
