GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly and Jax Lip Lock! Who Is In The Red Shirt That Julian Thinks Is Jessup?

Courtesy/ABC

On Friday’s General Hospital it was two key points at the end of the episode that had fans talking into the weekend and ready for Monday!

First, through Carly’s (Laura Wright) grief over the death of her son, Morgan and her ex-hubby Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) support, the two have been drawn closer together.  As well, their daughter Josslyn (Eden McCoy) is clearing hoping for reconciliation, even though Carly is married to Sonny (Maurice Benard), but their marriage is teetering on the brink of disaster.  When Carly tells Jax she does not know how she can move on from Morgan’s death, he holds her and says they can figure it out together.

Later, a reflective Carly brings up their past and lets Jax know that the time they were married and together was one of the happiest times in her life.  Regretfully, Carly wishes she had fought harder for them to stay together, because Jax is such a good man.  Next thing you know the two share a lip lock!

Elsewhere, after Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) run in with Franco (Roger Howarth), where he tries to apologize for making her believe she raped him and was the father of her baby, she sits down with hubby Jason (Billy Miller).  She lets Jason know about what Franco said and cannot believe Liz (Rebecca Herbst) would stay involved with him.

When the subject turns to exonerating Sonny, next thing you know Sam receives a key phone call from Spinelli with major Intel!  He found out the whereabout of Oscar Jessup, as it turns out the criminal has been dead since 1990!

Cut to: Julian (William deVry) who is firing Curtis (Donnell Turner) from the assignment with him.  When Curtis leaves, Julian receives a phone call.  He tells who he thinks is Jessup that he got rid of Curtis, and wants to know when this will all end, since he has done everything Jessup has asked in the last several months! On the other end of the line, we see a phone and someone in a red shirt listening to Julian’s every word!  Who could it be?

So, what did you think of the kiss shared by Carly and Jax?  Who is Julian actually talking to if Jessup is truly dead? Share your theories and thoughts in the comment section below!

The kiss is an anticlimactic moot point as we know that Ingo is only here for a brief run…unless fan interest leads to his return on a regular basis. I would be all for that. As far as the Julian story, I have the sinking feeling it will be contrived and unsatisfying. The show doesn’t realize when it has struck gold. Having Sonny actually be responsible for Morgan’s death would have been the way to go for long term story and character development. Plus, if they recast Morgan and have the character return the whole thing will have been a… Read more »

I agree with everything you just said! What a cop out not having Sonny responsible for Morgan’s death; instead, we will have to suffer with more of Sonny “making someone pay” instead. Sigh …..

Oh, but Mister Media, knowing what we all know about ingo/Jax…maybe he’ll stay and maybe not…and Carly being Carly…the kiss was still nice. Sigh! Hope GH writers build more on these good vibes than where Port Charles has been since what feels like forever.

I say, sir, Mister Media, you hit the spot. True, on all counts.
If Morgan does come back ( GH is a revolving door, anyway), it will all have been for naught.
I ask, though…….at what point will Carly’s prurient libido start to calm down and descend a rung or two? Is cheating on her husband greater than her self-respect?
Her son just died. As with Laura when Nik died, both women lose abandon themselves in carnal pleasure to alleviate grief? Shouldn’t that be the last thing on a mother’s mind?
Again, these writers give mothers a bad name.

Timmm

But one thing you guys need to understand is this is a serial and in this show, some will be drama to exercise actors abilities to emote! Morgan’s death is a typical ebb aan flow story. We see now the mourning and will see someday the jubilation from all that Morgan is alive and well!

Good point, my Timmmy. I’m usually as sanguine as you…..hope awaits over the rainbow. I guess that’s what su is talking about….too much doom and gloom. I expect some comic relief, though….
Thank you for jarring me back into that safe place.

Happy Thanksgiving, my dear friend. Blessings and love.

@Soaphound.
Thanks for bringing up Anna, Soaphound.
She is too busy sticking her nose into Valentin’s business….if he really is Valentin.
Yes, there is no doubt Anna’s loving heart goes out to Charlotte; but, I wonder if this has more to do with humoring/coddling Griffin…the big baby, that he is. Waa-waa, boo-hoo……he sounds as bad as Nina….I want a kid and I want her/him now.
Well, at least, Nina appreciates the emotion…..we can understand her maternal feelings after having felt life within her body, once upon a time.

Do you remember watching The Wizard of Oz and Glenda the Good Witch tells Dorothy that the other witch, that is, the Wicked Witch of the West, is worse than her sister, The Wicked Witch of the East? Well, Olivia is the Wicked Witch of the West to Ava’s Wicked Witch of the East. Olivia Jerome was obsessed with Duke and stalked the hell out of him, and by extension, she stalked and harassed the hell out of Anna. I recall her calling Anna and hanging up. Those were the good ole days when one could call their ex boyfriends… Read more »

I try, I have want to be involved in a story but It never happened under J&S. Their writing is not suited for GH, they are not the correct writers for GH. The Snooze Queens need to be replaced, yesterday. Carly & Jax is going nowhere. We all know that. Julian is the reason Morgan was blown up, we all know that. Nelle is a conniving twit, we all know that. Franco is going to go wired, we all know that. Finn will now have the cure so Hayden will live, we all know that. GH is no longer enticing/intriguing.… Read more »

But Juls, if Sonny doesn’t fit the bill, then she takes out her little checklist and moves on to Jason or Franco. It never crosses that twit’s mind that Ava or Julian might be responsible for something bad. Where is Anna when we need her?

Jordan is dumber than a rock. The only cases she solves are cases solved by others, such as Franco and Anna. The only confession she can get is a crazed and grief stricken Sonny standing in front of the church.

I hope it’s just you CeeCee. It’s a soap!!! Soaps include sex, betrayal, passion!!! Lol. Conflicted emotions, conflicted loyalties. Temptation. Giving into temptation. Some of the best literature centers around this part of the human condition. I’m watching. A BBC/PBS show. “Poldark” which just showed a major marital sexual betrayal. This is drama. Art, literature, film, and yes our soaps…depict the tangled web of humanity, our frailties, our lust, our desires. Soaps aren’t a measure of morality. They explore fantasies of all kinds which is part of their allure. As for Carly and Jax? We know Carly wouldn’t have turned… Read more »

@Rebecca1.
Hi, Rebecca,
You are absolutely right. Everything you describe is what defines a soap opera.
Sometimes, I forget and fall into the absurdity of it all. LOL.
That is not to say such women/ men do not exist in real life. And, as I always maintain, soaps do mimic life….to a certain extend.

OH, YES to that…kiss was nothing but a minor distraction, Carly just trying to FEEL something because she is so numb and empty inside. AND YES, Demelza’ s beautiful back-handed slap was WONDERFUL… such a release of her burning sense of betrayal by Ross! Now that was such juicy durm and strang!

I never read the books so I stay away from the boards as I don’t want to know what happens…though I made the mistake of wandering over to a British site and they’re way ahead in episodes of us than we are in America.

Ceecee…Remember on a post months ago i referred to Aidan from POLDARK and you thought I meant a daytime soap guy named Aidan too? I don’t believe you watched POLDARK back then as you weren’t familiar with Aidan Turner. Did that prompt you to start watching? Excellent show, yes?

Yes! Rebecca 1, you’re right on all counts. You as well, Celia. And no, that was not rape considering Elizabeth sent the letter to Ross in order to bait him. I was even angrier with Ross for telling Demelza that he thought she’d understand his extra marital tryst because she always understood his other conflicts of the heart. How emotionally tone can one bloke be? And I hate Elizabeth with the heat of a thousand suns. Not for sleeping with Ross, mind you, but for her utter dismissal of Demelza as a non variable as far as Ross coming to… Read more »

@Team Demelza….You’re so right, no assault there, just a most satisfying culmination of two people who have long-loved and desired each other!!! Finally!!!!

Jax is 100 times the man Sonny is! Don’t let him go Carly!

Jason should pound Franco into the ground! He is scum! He is causing trouble for Liz and cannot walk by Sam without keeping his scummy mouth shut!

Jessup, wouldn’t be great if it turned out to be Anthony Zaccaro! You know, you are never quite dead in Port Charles!

I think Carly is hypercritical in talking about kiki not being honest about her feelings. Why is it OK to sleep with your ex while mourning for your son and being married. I forgot Carly is just like Elizabeth . Every excuse to sleep with a man instead of dealing with emotion..where is Carly manic depressive pills to help her with sexual dysfunction? Storylines is so poor I stopped watching since the charollette birth certificate and many mistakes on serial killings

The storyline I’m trying to figure out why Tom Baker is reconnecting with Elizabeth. Will Liz not tell Franco. I wonder will Franco ever find out about Baker trying to hit on Alexis. This could be an intriguing storyline.

I thought the Carly/Jax kiss was rushed and as obviously going to happen as watching china fly when a bull is running the idles in the shop. Give me a break.

I believe that Julian is responsible for blowing up the car in an attempt to make Sonny look guilty. Morgan was collateral damage.

The red shirt….Now that stumps me. Who would Julian be willing to work for? Faison? I don’t know GH’s villain history that well, but hope that the person is from GH history and has a logical grudge against Sonny.

I think Jessup is Julian Jerome daddy. The master of deception. The real king pin of Port Charles. I love Sonny. Whatever he gets into in do get out. So leave my Sonny alone. Carly isgoing through heartbreak over Morgan. But she will survive. Like a true mob wife. Go Sonny and Carly. She will always be by his side. She has to vent like everybody else. But when she finds out what truly happens. Watch out Port Charles she’s going to show you what a Spencer /mob wife is made of. Jax maybe in a lip lock now. But… Read more »

I’m only mildly interested in who Oscar is. Like “me” mentioned, Olivia Jerome came to mind, but Anna already has enough story going on for that to happen. Then, I was leaning to imposter/forgotten brother Evan Jerome. But somehow, this has to be connected to Julian’s recent revelation that he wants to buy the hospital for condos. Regardless, this better not be a way to try and absolve Julian of all his misdeeds (including murder). Are we supposed to feel sympathy for a man so weak to first fall victim to Fluke then to a 2nd mystery power broker? Fool… Read more »

Focus on Morgan meds. and I don’t trust Jax, once and for all do something with Avalon let some of these couples stay married and please after Morgan returns leave all the dead dead fit’s getting old be more creative .

The red shirt…Since Sam’s search for William DeVry has turned up a dead end, literally, but phone calls go back to China. Maybe it could be Brad Cooper’s family who he has tried to avoid (married to Rosalie) and who are supposed to be the mob on the West Coast wanting to take over Sonny’s territory. If so maybe they teamed up with Julian to get rid of Sonny. In return Julian can still stay a mob player in Port Charles.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, this is Carly’s M.O. She’s played
this tune before… Subconsciously wanting to hurt one or the other
knowing they truly dislike, distrust & disrespect each other…
It all started with Brenda…she loved Sonny first, then came Jax…
Carly also loved Sonny first….then Jax, however Carly & Jax have
always been good together…their compatible on many levels, it’s a
smart pairing.

Jax is on about twice every other year. Regardless, why would you want Jax to lose a child? He’s the good guy. Sonny killed AJ, stole Michael FROM AJ, tortured AJ, has been involved in the mob his entire life…ignoring the fact his being in it puts his family in danger. Michael was in a coma, killed someone, got raped…Morgan was killed, Dante was shot, his ex-wife Liily and unborn child were blown up too. Jax? Corporate raider, black market kidney.

Celia, regarding a different post: I should have guessed you’d be a POLDARK fan also. Yeah, he’s a dreamboat in a certain way but cheating is bad enough. Then to cheat with that simpering do-nothing Elizabeth AND expect Demelza to accept that he’s “torn”. Give me a break! It’ll be a while before he’d be back in my boudoir again, if EVER!

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

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.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.
