GENERAL HOSPITAL: Can Ric's Scheme To Use Hayden To Keep Liz And Jake Apart Really Work?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On ABC’s General Hospital viewers learned on Wednesday that it is indeed Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst),  the jilted ex of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), who is behind Hayden (Rebecca Budig) showing up out of nowhere claiming to be Jake’s (Billy Miller) wife!

Hayden and Ric apparently met via an online dating site, they did not have a love connection, so Ric – the ever calculated one – found out that Hayden needed plenty of cash for her debt that incurred after her husband left her.  Hayden agreed to be Ric’s co-conspirator in this scheme, including even posing for faux wedding photos with a guy Ric hired to pose as Jake with his “face” before his accident.

Thank goodness for Carly (Laura Wright) though! While Elizabeth starts to think that Hayden’s story of being Jake’s wife may be true, Carly is putting her foot down, saying something is way off and they head to the Metro Court to find Hayden, only when they get there they walk-in on Jake and Hayden seemingly locked in a kiss.  This happened after Hayden armed with a wedding ring, (thanks to Ric  since that could have been a bone of contention that would have blown the ruse sky high)  puts the supposed MIA ring on Jake’s finger.  When the gals walk-in viewers see Jake resisting the kiss being planted on him by Hayden!

Courtesy/ABC

But how far can Ric go with this before someone pins this on him?  Even the guy he paid off to take the wedding photos showed up and looked like he was about to blackmail Ric!

So, what do you think will happen next? Will everyone in Port Charles be so duped, that they cannot figure out, or get the good on the fact that Ric and Hayden are scheming together?

Now that Rebecca Budig is on the canvas, who do you think she will be romantically paired with on GH, ultimately? Will Hayden worm her way into Jake’s heart … or someone else’s?  Share your thoughts on the story point and your predictions on it below!

Personally, no, I do not believe Rick’s scheme will work…perhaps for a while. But, Carly, or someone else will smell a rat. This plot is overly used, how stupid are these people? And, how stupid do they think we are? Please, writers, add a little sophistication to your ‘cloak &dagger’ storylines.
Things will not add up…something’s ‘gotta’ give. So far, Liz has weak, little doubts about this fake wife……not so Carly…she is sure of foul play and that something fishy is afoot. Something is really rotten in the state of Denmark….ahem, I mean New York.

Why isnt Jake demanding to see the minster who allegedly married them, inlaws, friends and coworkers who can comfirm they are a couple—or go to the town where they were married, lived and work—you can fake photos but not everything!!!

Why, jimh? ….because Jake is there to be a dummy. No mind of his own. Is this how the writers want him to be? I agree with you. Why does he not question anything? Why does he accept what is told to him? He may not remember his past, but, we know , he himself said, on several occasions, that he has an affinity with Liz. His memory is also stirred by Carly and Sam. But, his senses draw a blank with Hayden. Shouldn’t that tell him something? If the writers do not light a match underJake’s pants and embark… Read more »

I totally agree Jim H. And with Cee Cee. They need to give Jake/son some strength in his personality. Billy Miller is a good actor, but they need to give him some strength in his personality or the new Jason will be boring. I don’t want him to be in the mob, but I don’t want him to be a total wimp. he knows he feels nothing for Hayden … We need Jason /Jake to be interested in finding out the truth. maybe working with Carly to find out the truth. He needs to start finding out who he is.

Sophisticated storytelling is not something we are going to get. Characters are routinely dumbed down to advance or stall a plot and the audience is supposed to ignore that as the characters ignore the obvious. The funny thing here is that on a show where characters are routinely dumbed down and fooled, Liz and Carly are suspicious of Hayden from the start. Liz had attitude before she even opened her mouth. So that’s a departure from the usual way that characters are portrayed, but it is so OTT and unwarranted that their “smarts” lose credibility. At least be initially receptive… Read more »

I have mentioned many times, that this site is chock-full of many intelligent posters…I should say ‘thinkers’. You are one of them. Thus, it is insulting to the viewers to write such drivel. So many, if not most, of the storylines are mired with illogical, grasping-at-straws plots bordering on ennui. The writers do not even make an attempt to get their ducks in a row. They do not seem to think of the audience. There is… Read more »

Bravo, this is one of the best reasoned and expressed posts on this site in quite some time. The fact that you (and other viewers) can see all this so clearly just begs the question: How can the writers, whose job it is to think about these things, be so lackadaisical in their plotting? It’s really unfortunate; this story could have been so much better than it is.

AJQ…great, intelligently written comment! I agree…Helena should have crossed their minds. It crossed mine and I actually think that would have been a more interesting path for the writers to have taken, since Ric’s scheme was so obvious…and will be so easily taken apart. And I also wondered how the writers could take such a bright guy, excellent lawyer, manipulative aficionado…who really did seem to be a changed man upon his return, and have him fall back on his old ways so soon. Especially since one of the reasons he lost Liz was due to this very behavior. His love… Read more »

The only way this could have been worse is if Sparkle Pony suddenly trotted in saying she’s the real wife.
This is like that movie Overboard only there’s no charismatic and funny Kirk Russell and Goldie Hawn to pull this off.
This story has gone overboard to the point of killing off my interest in the great Jake reveal. Billy Miller as Jason was one of the story aspects which drew me back in.

The big question is: ‘What is Hayden suppose to do next if she convinces Jake they ‘are’ husband and wife’—does she have any friends and relatives, and will they play along?…This plotline cant last long…Hayden will have to stay in PC and live with Jake or Ric’s chances to be with Liz will end before it started…

I doubt the writers thought that far, jimh. Hayden would certainly have a ‘lotta splainin’ to do. I hope Jake mans up and not just accept what she tells him. Who knows, perhaps in the midst of it all, a miracle will happen and he’ll get his memory back. I also think she’ll fess up. I caught a little bit of something on her face during Carly’s heated tirade…..or, she’ll just lure him into bed. No, just kidding…I doubt it’ll come to that, it can’t! That’s a great question, jimh. This has to be one of the most stupid move… Read more »

Someone posited the theory that Hayden is Nathan’s long-lost girlfriend, if so, she will be coming between my two favorite couples, Jake&Liz, Nathan&Maxie. Exactly what happened on AMC, Rebecca Budig’s Greenlee came between Ryan&Gillian and Leo&Becca, my two faves. She’s a good actress, but I hate the characters she plays! LOL

No, Hayden is in her forties. One of our fellow-posters suggested that Valerie, Luke’s niece, was Nathan’s lost love.

@Laurie,
I had completely forgotten about the fact that Nik knows Jake is Jason. Of course, you make the most sense. That fact will be a very delectable storyline in itself.

connie

That’s how I look at it. Nothing like bringing back a favorite daytime actress, only to have her be hated, right from the get-go. I didn’t see the entire episode today, but I think the whole lot of them, Jake, Carly, Liz and Hayden ought to take a trip over to Beecher’s Corners, see if anyone recognizes Hayden. Oh, and I also think that Danny should cross paths with Jake and recognize him as his father again, and see if maybe Jake recognizes him.

Laurie
Guest
Laurie

I don’t think she’s hated Connie. Much talk of pairing her with Ric after their very first scenes together.. Now social media is rampant with these suggestions and rumors. I really haven’t seen much hate at all for her, which is a miracle considering! As of now, she’s only short-term. I think she’s going to set her sights on Nik after he busts her for charade. Just rumors and my opinion.

Rick scheme is starting out weak, he was dumb enough to let the guy impersonating jake in on what he’s trying to do with Hayden, why would he let this guy know so much? i would of hire the guy, told him we are shooting pics for a catalog for anything really and paid the guy a modeling fee, therefore theres no reason this guy should of know what rick is planning, this proves how dumb rick is, on top of that he shoots pic of this guy in carry’s hotel, really? so i’m interested how things will play out,… Read more »

You’re right, Aria. Jake, himself, should be the one to dissenter his own past. As I said, TPTB are writing him as a dumb rooster; a prop, while the hens do the work. Is this how Jason managed his past life? I was under the impression he took any issue into his own hands, come what may.
Oh, yeah….this reminds me….wait until Sam gets involved in this ridiculous venture of an all-female cast for the sake of the greater good….can’t wait…

I could see the two of them together, but how? She’s supposed to be Jake Doe’s long-lost wife, which of course, Nic knows is not true because he is (I believe) the only one in town who knows that Jake is Jason. I think he’s a little done with connivers and liars…but I do miss Britt.

I still believe that Nik has a good reason for keeping Jake’s identity hush-hush. I do not think that neither he nor Sloane is crooked. Maybe I’m too naive, but I don’t want Nik to turn into a bonafied Cassadine. He and Sloane need Jake as he is to aid them in catching bigger fish. I love Billy, so I don’t mind prolonging this storyline a bit….however, not to the point of exasperation.
And, connie? I miss Britt too!

Can it? Yes. Will it? For a while but in the end Ric will always fall on that sword…He is smart, devious, shockingly handsome, whitty, elegant, smooth, and a throw back to the Cary Grant area, and arguably the best actor on GH. Why they never have him win I will never understand but they don’t! So no he will not keep them apart… That being said I don’t believe for a second Lake/ Liason will last or that Jasam will either… My best guess sometime by the end of this year middle of next we will see Siam, Niz,… Read more »

Besides how Rick has been written, I don’t think they use the talents of several others on a regular basis. From Tony as tedious, slovenly Fluke; Laura/Carly as mother-of-the-year shrew; Liz as the perennially never-can-make-it-work “nurse Jackie.” Even Alexis who is supposed to be a brilliant lawyer. And if they are going to have smart crime lords who run the East coast, why not use Sonny and Julian better. Sonny just rants and postures, and Julian seems to do nothing. But we know the writers have it in them when they give actors something to work with, and they shine…Nicholas… Read more »

Hey, Su.
I assume you realize how apropos that quote by Sir Walter Scott is to this scheme Rick fabricated.
The quote is extracted from the epic poem MARMION. It was titled after its main protagonist, who falsely accused his nemesis in order to ‘steal’ his fiancée from him. So, GH’ writers are basically using that concept.
However, Su, the best part? MARMION is defeated…killed. And, the lovers were reunited.
Moral of the story? Those who deceive others, will get caught in their own web of lies.

It takes a while for new characters to catch on, especially if we know them from other soaps. Hayden is way to new. My two examples of mega talent that is just not clicking, so far is Michelle Stafford as Nina and Kelly Sullivan over on Y&R as Sage. So far both of those women’s new characters have bombed. Its not too late and I will be patient because I love them both!

Hayden said “Jake” was her husband at liz’s front door. But doesn’t he have another real, first name that she would have known since they were supposedly married? Or did I miss something? Doesn’t surprise me Rick’s plan is unravelling. It may be quicker than usual for a soap, but maybe the writers have a reason, especially since Jake’s photo double is going to make himself a nuisance. Frustration over the Fluke story. Please end. Talk about predictable. And I lost my appetite for scrambled eggs for a while. I’d hate to think I won’t miss Tony when he eventually… Read more »

Of course this scheme will fail– but they have to extend revealing Jake as Jason until May sweeps, so this is a story arc should last about that long. I hope RB character’s Hayden will be connected to someone else in town, otherwise she will just be another big name soap actress brought in for a short stint. Right now she is Ron’s new toy to play with while other characters already established languished on the proverbial shelf, so fans should enjoy her while they can because on this show characters disappear as quickly as they appear.

I am hoping it doesn’t last too long. I am really enjoying Jake & Liz and man today they were smoking hot! There are a lot of holes in Rics plan, the major one being that Liz doesn’t love him anymore. He needs to move on and let her be happy. I do love Rebecca Budig though and wouldn’t mind seeing Hayden stick around, just not with Jake!

Just dumb all around. Rick lost Liz due to his lies and manipulations. Even if it worked…does he think she’d never find out? Does he even consider the fact “Jake” could get his memory back?

Buddig is a decent actress…I enjoyed her as Michelle Bauer, though I preferred Bethany Joei Lenz then Joei Lenz in that role. I don’t think that this plot will last. I am guessing a May sweeps ending. I thought Buddig was temporary on the show? If not maybe she can make Nikolas a little less dull!

Rick Lansing has always been a snake in the grass and will always be one as far as I am concern. Poor Elizabeth the writers keeps making her fall for that, how sad. I know what’s going to happen Rick’s scheme will be discovered sooner rather than later and lets face it should be because it is a weak scheme. Then Elizabeth and Jake will finally have their moments for two or three episodes and it will come out that he is Jason and Elizabeth will be hurt again and an entire new mess will start meaning he goes back… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.
