GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Catches On To Ryan Leading To Dire Consequences

Courtesy/ABC

All of Ryan Chamberlain’s (Jon Lindstrom) recent machinations may come back to bite him this week on General Hospital. as all roads will lead to dramatic episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.  As GH Co-Head Writer, Shelly Altman tells Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now: “This is a can’t-miss week. So many trains are running down tracks that are certain (to collide) with a big bang.”

Viewers were left with an exciting cliffhanger on Friday’s episode which saw Carly (Laura Wright) standing behind Ryan in the parking lot now knowing that “Kevin” is Ryan.  How did we get here?  Earlier, after Carly finds Jason released from the hospital, she tells him about Franco’s (Roger Howarth) interview with Lulu (Emme Rylan) and that Franco called Ryan Chamberlain by the name of Tom Wilson.  She recalls the man in the room next to her when she was locked away at Ferncliff was named Wilson.  Jason (Steve Burton) begs her to stay away from the mental facility and to not put her unborn baby at risk.

Ava (Maura West) comes upon “Kevin” being bandaged at GH up after he claims Franco injured him when he went to confront him following Franco’s confessional interview of the serial murders, which was a set-up by Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) to lure the real killer out   After dancing around why he went to see Franco and “risking” his life, he asks Ava to run away with him tonight to Canada to get married.

Mac (John J. York) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner) try to help jog Lulu’s foggy memory about the night she was stabbed and attacked, and remember discovering there were two more potential victims in Ryan’s killing spree making it 9, when there used to be only 7.   Felicia asks Lulu how she learned about these new victims, and she explains Laura (Genie Francis) saw a list of Ryan’s victims in Kevin’s office.  Everyone wonders how Kevin got the names.  C’mon Lulu, get it together and remember what happened to you, the answer is right in front of you!

Liz (Rebecca Herbst) is stunned when Franco appears at her door, stabbed and bleeding out.  After tending to his wounds, she calls the paramedics, but before he passes out he tells her he did not do commit the murders, but Ryan Chamberlain did.   When Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene she relates what Franco said to him, but passes it off as Franco being delirious from his stabbing.

After Ava agrees to marry “Kevin”, she heads home to pack, but tells him she’ll meet him back at GH.  On her way to the elevator, Ava runs into Carly and announces to her enemy that she and “Kevin” are getting married, and exits.  Then, Mac and Felicia arrive as Carly thinks this is too insane to be true, and Felicia thinks Ava must be lying.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: "He's The Most Hated Man In Port Charles"

In Jordan’s hospital room, Nina (Michelle Stafford) goes through Jordan’s purse in order to get her keys so she can get Curtis (Donnell Turner) some new clothes while he is waiting for his wife to come out of surgery. However, she sees Jordan’s phone has a voice mail marked “urgent” and hands it to Curtis who looks very distressed.

In the hospital garage, Ryan stores his lock box containing all of his victim’s licenses in the trunk of his car.  When he closes the trunk, Carly is standing behind him.   Showdown time!

So, will Ava and Carly have to team up to bring down Ryan?  How do you think Ryan’s reign of terror will comes to a conclusion? Share your thoughts via the comment section below?

What a set-up for next week! February Sweeps might be over, but GH is definitely heating things up heading into March. Something tells me Ryan is going to kidnap Carly, there will be a car accident involving Ryan/Carly and the Teen Scene heading up to Niagara Falls, and it will result in Carly losing her baby. I can’t see GH giving Carly a successful pregnancy this late in her life with the multitude of issues that could arise and create really good drama between her and Sonny. I just don’t want to see this story lead to Sonny and Margaux hooking up.

As for the Ryan story, there are so many balls up in the air right now, with all of them sure to come crashing down sooner rather than later. The build up to this moment has been excellent, and I’m most looking forward to Ava’s wrath when she realizes she’s been having an affair with the psycho who killed her daughter. Maura West will rock those scenes, as she always does.

The most maddening part of this story for me is what has been done to Franco in the process. I realize it was necessary for this part of the story to work, and bringing in Franco and Lulu’s history to conflate the memories of her two attacks (the first by Franco years ago and the second by Ryan) was smart, yet also beyond maddening because we all know Franco didn’t do it.

And after years of being the town pariah, I want Franco to have his happily ever after with Liz. He’s earned it, and his redemption story has been superbly done. The best thing to come out of this is that Drew never believed Franco was guilty, solidifying their growing bond, which is one of the highlights of GH right now. Given their shared childhood trauma at the hands of Jim Harvey, it makes sense that they would share a bond. Liz, Nina and Ava have all been skeptical since day one about Franco’s guilt too, and let’s not forget that he’s still grieving for Kiki. Plus, we still need a proper “Friz” wedding! This is why I don’t believe Franco will die.

I’m really looking forward to next week’s episodes, and this story reaching its conclusion!

I follow you to the letter, Jimmy….I like Franco; always have …….because I love Roger.
I didn’t know the original Franco……did not watch GH at the time.
However, in my opinion, I don’t think Franco should come out the hero, if this is the writers’ intention.
The story did not follow the path I wanted it to LOL) …..so many other more feasible choices. This congregating in Niagara Falls follows no pattern; unless crazy Ryan planned to throw Ava “overboard”. Surprisingly enough, he didn’t do it to Carly…..and, here I thought he was the fiendish, most unscrupulous monster this side of the Falls.
I hope that by the time Ryan is “over”, no one else will die—no one I like, anyway…LOL.❤️

So the entire Ryan Chamberlain storyline comes down to propping Frankie’s pets Frodd & Ava, while characters who were actually involved in the original Ryan storyline, like Felicia & Lucy, are rarely seen.

If Ryan had actually killed Frodd & Ava, that would have been an improvement, of course. Except then they would be in Hell, and become MY problem.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Satan, this is one time I agree with Satan! 🙂

Jimh
Jimh

While there has been some improvement it should had been Felicia confronting Ryan…still the story has flaws as no worker at the mental hospital ever figures Kevin’s patient was Ryan..too much involvement with Carly and Ava in this when original Ryan story characters like Lucy and Felicia are barely seen…Mac should had been the commish…had Ryan caused Drew to swerve his car into Mac in an attempt to kill Mac who figured out Kevin is really Ryan but now in a coma ect…Ava could had found Felicia as Ryans real obsession…Spenser figures the truth and Laura confronts Ryan and Kevin at the same time not knowing which is which,,,she is holding a gun that Spenser tries to take from her knowing who the real Ryan is but the gun goes off on a Friday Cliffhanger with the viewers not know who actually got shot…anyway, where is TJ when his mom is hospitalized!!!!

Celia
Celia

TPTB never learn, Jimmy–they never listen to you!! I believe everything you say!!
I don’t know Ryan’s “association” with Felicia too well; but, enough to agree with you. It would have been poetic justice for her and Mac figure out the Ryan/Kevin mystery–To make Franco the hero would be going against all that’s reasonable. It’s still not too late….we shall see.
I, also, think Anna is Alex ( or she has her sister’s memories) and vice versa–which means, Peter is Alex’s son, not Anna’s. But, Griffin may very well be Anna’s and Duke’s son. I find all this and the Ryan’s such asinine stories—-yet, I will just roll with whatever , anyway….
Faison’s infatuation was with Alex? Oh, Lordy Lord, Jimmy—-I’m confusing myself. LOL.❤️

Jimh
Jimh

now im confused…lol

Celia
Celia

PS, Jimmy,
I was thinking that it would be apropos if Kevin were the one to have the last ‘hurrah’, where Ryan is concern—-considering Ryan incarcerated him and put him through hell—anyone whose life was directly affected by crazy Ryan will do!! Anyone else but Franco !!

Jimh
Jimh

Kiki’s gran Dee should had been mention being her grandaughter was murdered..Scott wasnt around when son FRanco was stabbed and no mention of his mom Heather-at least she could had been told off screen

Celia
Celia

Yes, Delia should have made an appearance….
Does she even know Avery? You’re right, Jimmy……at the very least, both Delia and Heather should have been mentioned.
Considering Heather seems to be up to par with whatever happens in Port Charles………And, the fact that she has the ability to come and go as she pleases, one would think she’d sneak into Franco’s hospital room—-guard or no guard…

Shay
Shay

Absoluement, CeeCeeGirl!!! There’s no way in Hades that Heather would not have at least had knowledge of Ryan’s existence and all of his previous activities in the cuckoo’s nest….that woman’s legendary antenna picks up all, far and wide….always has, always will!!! To have excluded her from this scenario was inexcusable! Ditto for Dee!!!! Their progeny had pivotal roles in Ryan’s crime spree….the fact that their prospective presences were ignored is but another travesty attached to this much-flawed and inexplicable storyline.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

You got that right. We USED to have cliffhangers. Plot so diluted now that no one cares. TPTB have forgotten the tenets of writing a gripping storyline–and PLAYING IT OUT dramatically. Sigh!

Jimh
Jimh

The show needs us to be wanting more…not making it a bore!!!!

Harry
Harry

I agree, Jim. But yesterday’s show (Monday, March 4) was pitch perfect. Who would have thunk that Sonny and Robert could have such a wonderful bromance? Robert is cooler than the other side of the pillow and he makes Sonny look cool. Frank and the writers if you are listening, more please. This could be the start of a beautiful relationship.

Jimh
Jimh

Nope…cant happen…Jason would be jealous that Robert is getting too close to his love Sonny-lol

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Harry–you’re a man after my own heart. As usual, I agree with you–couldn’t agree more re Robert and Sonny. (And I just love that expression “cooler than the other side of the pillow.” Now, that’s one I haven’t heard before! 🙂

Shay
Shay

And to think that Robert Scorpio once existed to put men like Sonny in the slammer….now he’s all buddy-buddy with this thug??? I realize that needs must, but how the mighty have fallen… albeit whilst still maintaining their undeniable cool.

Celia
Celia

PPS (LOL), Jimmy,
It looks like our Jason ( such a softie) will come out the hero– at least, Laura will take some of the credit.
But, Gee-Whiz—-why is it always Jason smack in the middle of everything?
Not only will he take Ryan in, but he will also save Ava and Carly….
Uh-oh, Jimmy….this just came to me…..What are the chances Ryan will disappear in the depths ( Ha!) of the Niagara River? No body to be found! Oh, no!! Not again??

Jimh
Jimh

I hope Ryan survives…not only has he got to kill off more bores like Willow and Chase,he has got to be around when Ava gives birth to their baby-lol

Celia
Celia

LOL, is right……You may get your wish, Jimmy—-if Ryan’s “body” is a no show; he may go back to PC to do just that. But, would he be that stupid?
Ava pregnant with Ryan’s baby? Hmmmm–intriguing thought!!

I fear for Carly’s baby…easy out for a tough story line

Loving this storyline and can’t wait for tomorrow! GH has been amazing.

Carrie

Ryan will be killed, and one of his kidneys will go to Jordan.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Say what????!!!!

Celia
Celia

Good thinking, Carrie—
Yet, knowing how weird GH is about Faison and his masks; memory-approptiation; twin-blindness etc.; would it be too much of a stretch { if living with Ryan’s kidney(s) } to think that sooner or later, Jordan will turn into a “Mrs”. Hyde?

Harry
Harry

Or…..Valerie will be killed and her kidney will go to Jordan. The actress is leaving. Ryan can’t die–supernatural villains like him live forever.

Carrie
Carrie

Or, sadly, it might be Oscar. Drew and Kim will offer one of Oscar’s kidneys to Jordan. There may be some tear-jerking scenes between Drew and Curtis.

Tara
Tara

Yeah but Ava and Carly don’t even like each other so why would they team up against Ryan? The only way for Ryan to end his conclusion if Ava is the one to kill the guy first before he kills somebody else, he will be tough to beat of course so I think Ryan should kill himself before he goes any further

Mags
Mags

I do believe, at some point, there has to be some sort of truce between Carly/Sonny and Ava. They may never be besties but, they cannot carry on this feud for ever. If you were in a fight for your life along side of someone that you can’t stand would you not team up to save yourselves? My guess is that, rather than team up, Ava will somehow be instrumental in saving Carly. Not sure that CarlyJason will ever acknowledge Ava is capable of good (remember, Jason has no gratitude for her role in saving him) but Sonny may. Which could then lead to friction between Carly and Sonny. And the beat goes on. As far as the kids, I’m still not certain what type of trouble awaits them. I’m just glad that Franco will be okay.

aria
aria

I’m loving the storyline winding down, there’s so many ways it could end, I don’t care if Ava, or Kevin, or Laura or even Franco have Ryan brought to justice, as long as they don’t turn this into Carly or Jason saving the day. If the storyline is coming to the end(its played out way to long). please do it justice and don’t make it anticlimactic by now throwing Carly and Jason in the mix. as soon as I saw carly in the Friday cliffhanger my first though was oh here we go again, they are going to set up Carly needing to be rescued and of course carly can only be “saved” by Jason . if so, it will be a dissappointing ending.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Agreed! LAURA should be front and center! Yet, she’s been off-screen for the better part of two weeks now. Kevin is HER husband. This should be Laura’s story. Yes, so very disappointing. And it so dissipates and dilutes the story line. Not exciting–just tedious and stale and–dare I say it?–boring. TPTB should know you do NOT stop and start an exciting plot line. You use a linear device–to keep the momentum going. Otherwise, it’s has none and just peters out with the audience shouting at the screen: GET ON WITH IT!

Rodd
Rodd

This story was being drawn out at time and I thought it would never end. But suddenly, it’s taken on a new life and has gone places I didn’t imagine it would. This is how it should have been all along. When a story is planned out, all those pesky schedules and ratings weeks should be planned for. Writers need to give us exciting stuff like they’re writing now throughout the entire story. Play it less if you don’t have the actors or time’s too long between hitting key dates with key story points. Plan it out!

As much as I’ll groan about GH’s writing being a mess, I whole-heartedly think they hit it out of the park when they hit their stride. They’re doing that now with a number of stories.

Can’t wait to see the next episode!

Celia
Celia

Hmmmm…I don’t know–will everyone come to the convlusion Ryan is not Kevin, at the same time?
Too many inconsistencies. For a minute I had thought that Franco would have found himself within the bowels of Ferncliff; thus, finding Kevin and Laura, unwittingly ‘saving’ him.
Who will be Jordan’s kidney donor? Franco?
Oh, and…this memory thing with all the twins? Bullcaca!! Mundane and medically inexplicable. Just sayin’. It’s a soap!!

Satan
Satan

The blind virus has a purpose… they just haven’t got to that plot point yet. Remember when Dr Kim was researching various “experimental” cancer treatments, which use a virus to target tumors??

With both Drew and Jason as compatible blood donors for Oscar, the virus probably still present in their bodies will be used to formulate a cure for Oscar. And of course, the other result from all the memory swapping potential is that Anna will turn out not to be Whiny Heiny’s mom after all, she just “remembered” Alex giving birth to him.

I am laughing so hard, I am almost convulsing, at your word. It’s probably a typo, but funny non the less. Please don’t be angry, you probably know by now, I have a crazy sense of humour.
I think Aunt Stella will be Jordan’s donor, tieing her even closer.

Celia
Celia

Bullcaca? LOL…no, not a typo. My sense of humor is just as “crazy-weird” as yours–
Have you ever seen the Liberty Insurance commercial with the cyclist along the Hudson? His calves? I break into peals of laughter just thinking about those satirical calves….laughing right now!! The thing is, my laughter is so contagious ( LOUD), people start laughing without knowing why….
Aunt Stella? Oh, Lawd!! That’s rich!!

Violet Lemm

Read your comment starting with “Hmmmmm, I don’t know. Will everyone come to the same CONVLUSION Ryan is not Kevin at the same time.” I think you were typing CONCLUSION, but I read it as CONVULSION, with your typing VLU, instead of VUL. Only in my weird mind, did I mix up the two words, leaving me in hysterical laughter, with my cat looking at me like I’d lost my mind. Please , let’s just forget the whole thing, seeing as I seem to be the only one seeing the twisted word. I know bullcaca and loverly, especially when applied to the aforementioned characters. I hope the DOD SL doesn’t make me as crazy as this one.
Oh yes, Aunt Stella is a strong possibility.

Celia
Celia

Oh, my Lord!! Miss Violet……that IS a typo!! I hadn’t even realized.
I get it–I unwittingly created a double ‘entendre’–and, as yours, I find humor where others do not!!
I like COVULSION better. So a’ propos–it fits!!
This is nuts!! Everyone’s headed for Niagara Falls…
I am trying do hard to follow the reasoning. Was Ryan’s intention to just step over the Peace Bridge and VOILA’ , he and Ava are in Ontario, Canada? Away from the law?
Big coincidence for the kids to follow the same path….not only are they all convulsing, but also, the entired scenario is a convoluted mess!!

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Celia
Thank you for rereading your comment. Was thinking that you were thinking that I’d really gone around the bend.
I’ve been reading all kinds of scenarios to this Ryan ending. For one, he dissapears, another is he’s shot, etc. I want to see someone get the satisfaction of getting him, be it Ava, Laura, or? As far as a kidney for Jordan, even with a dead body, they can’t just take a kidney from him, without consent,right? Could Kevin give his o.k, being next of kin?

Celia
Celia

Violet,
I had this feeling that Ryan would disappear…..isn’t that his modus operandi?…..whether planned or not!?However, I find it neither mystifying nor ‘cute’….it’s actually a recycled plot….
The story should end with Ryan dead sprawled on some boulder…..better yet drift downriver; emptying into the great Falls and swallowed by the heavy pressure of the cascades!! Too cruel? Oh, well….
I hope he is found for Jordan’s sake….if he is a match, that is!! But, there’s no prolonging. Cells die if too much time goes by.
So, yeah, Kevin could give permission. I doubt Ryan is a registered organ donor? Too funny!!
When there’s no next of kin, to sign off; there’s CORE—-surprisingly, GH has not mentioned this? It’s make believe soapland…..TPTB make their own rules….
Jimh suggested a ‘little’ Ryan or Ryanette to be borne by Ava….how about that? And the saga continues? Before long the baby will be ten, and Ryan will return to claim his prize.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Celia
I don’t know about anyone else, but this “end” of Ryan was a total let down, after all the months of murder and mayhem, leading up to the finale, and no body. WTH! I agree with you. I also wanted to see him at least drowned.
Oh, speaking of which, I almost peed my depends when Jason was telling his Loverly about saving Ava, and he said ” well I couldn’t let her go, in front of Laura” Does that mean he would have, if Laura hadn’t been there? Also Oscar’s talk with Drew was nice, but with all of Drew’s double talk, did he ever really answer his son’s question of should he our shouldn’t he? Hope Oscar was less confused than I was.

Celia
Celia

Ahhhh!!…..on second thought, Violet, can you possibly mean “loverly”? Nah–not a typo either. Loverly–“rly” , the tail end of Carly. LOL. You got it the first time. LOL.
Those two crazy kids are nuts about each other and no one gets it–not even themselves. HaHa❤️

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

But the most pertinent question: WHY were the real Kevin and Laura AWOL off screen for so many days? TPTB have forgotten the rules of the game. You need to keep the momentum going–not just stop the action for two weeks. Poor, poor execution of a plot that we are all weary of BECAUSE of its execution. Missed again! Laura should be front and center always; after all, Kevin IS HER husband. “Murder” of a character!

Violet Lemm

O.K, I’ll be the first to say it. They finally found a way to shut Carly up, and keep her out of everyone’s business.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a Laura, Ava, Carly showdown with Ryan with each woman getting in their licks… but then they part, and it’s freakin Felecia, standing there with a gun (she’s overheard it all somehow) and gives the monologue of her career (“oh so you forgot about me, huh, well, I sure as hell haven’t been able to forget about you!”) and then she shoots the maniac dead in his tracks. All the woman vow to carry the secret to the grave (since, Ryan was unarmed) which binds these women for several storylines to come…

I know none of this will happen but the GH in my head is pretty awesome.

Especially since Niagara Falls is frozen over this time of the year. Not that GH will deign to acknowledge that fact! For them, it’s all balmy temps and the water is freely flowing in their version of upstate NY, even though there’s actually a polar plunge occurring in “realville!”…..

Celia
Celia

Hi, Shay,
We keep missing each other….how are you?
You’re certainly right about the state of NY ‘s “state” of frozen wonderland—-but, I don’t think the falls ever freeze—-even in extreme temps, do they? ….a little ice here and there, maybe.
I’ve visited family in Toronto many times in winter……No freezing, It’s the Law of Physics!! LOL……albeit, I do wish GH would wake from its fairyland dreams—some reality, once in a while would be welcomed.
I cannot seem to take Sam, Jason, Shiloh &Co. seiously—-Sam is still driving me crazy with her monotone mumbling; Jason’s eternally, frozen ( worse than the polar plunge) stare; the twins, Alexis playing cat and mouse with this new guy sporting a hair-do a’ la Emu; and Franco, the hero. Did I overlook anything?
Soon, mia amica.❤️

Celia

Too bad Laura will not have the chance to confront Ryan and punch him in the mouth.
I must say……even with her face stained with grime and soot, Genie Francis still looks beautiful!!

I don’t know why Ava couldn’t hold him, while Carly hits him you know where, with one of her clunky shoes. As Ryan said, now that she’s had more room to stretch out, and give her mouth a rest, she should be ready to do some damage. I am sure Laura will get her chance, when she and Jason get to N.F if he’s still alive.

Celia
Celia

I’m actually afraid of Carly, Violet…..I am just over five feet!! LOL.
Yet, I could take Ryan just as you described it—had one or two such run-ins during my College days. Ha!! Have no idea what became of them……
So, women of Ava’s and Carly’s caliber, should be an easy feat taking him down…yeah!! Woman Power!! LOL.

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
