GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Crash! Lulu and Dante Have It Out!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, three actors delivered compelling performances: Laura Wright (Carly), Emme Rylan (Lulu) and Dominic Zamprogna (Dante),  and two major stories moved forward during this key time of November Sweeps.

First, Carly armed with the DNA proof that “Jake” is really Jason (Billy Miller) is absolutely overcome! This is afterall her beloved best friend who she has missed dearly since his “death” several years ago.  Now with the computer facial recognition program showing that “Jake” is a reconstructed Jason, and the DNA proof, Carly places an urgent call to “Jake”.  When she can’t reach him and leaves a voice message, she heads out to find him.   Only a drunken Kiki (Hayley Erin), who is wrought over Morgan  (Bryan Craig) is driving in one car, while Carly is another.  What do ya know?  Car crash! This means Carly could it be waylaid in her attempt to get to “Jake” before he walks down the aisle with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).  And Elizabeth, by the way, just covered up an important memory for “Jake”  on the bridge they were at together – in fact it was a memory of Liz and Jason’s, he recalled!  It would appear there is nothing Liz won’t do to ensure her future with Jason.

Elsewhere, Dante and Lulu have the long awaited confrontation on the pier.  Lulu is devastated over Dante’s betrayal for having sex with Valerie (Brytni Sarpi).  As much as Dante tried to explain that her lies led him to it – and him stumbling upon the messed up bed and clothes in the hotel room he tracked his wife and Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) down to – it did not matter.   Lulu is sucker-punched.  She is even moreso when she learns Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nathan (Ryan Paevey) have known for awhile too!  Back at the Haunted Star,  Dillon admits to Valerie that he let the videotape play to the crowd in attendance at the Halloweeen party that landed a explosive bombshelll on the marriage of Lante.

Throughout the episode, Laura Wright, Emme Rylan, and Dominic Zamprogra continued to prove why they are three MVP’s on General Hospital!

So, what did you think of Carly’s crash?  Frustrated?  Did you enjoy the performance of Laura Wright? And, what did you thnk of the showdown scenes between Dante and Lulu, and the performances of Dominic Zamprogna and Emme Rylan? Do you think Dillon is the bad guy in this, or are you glad the secret of the tryst of Dante and Valerie is out, no matter who let it slip?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Predictable lets-drag-out-Jason-reveal car accident…i know its a soap but when Kiki is at a bar how come no one asks to see id…her voice is horrible-i scratch my fingernails against a chalkboard to drawn it out…lol

Well, Jimmy. I kinda, sorta put my foot in my mouth….Kiki was not in the crash? The gods/fates are against me….oh, heck.
Did Kiki not realize she hit someone or something, or did Carly try to avoid her, who was going in the wrong direction, and ended up in the woods?

CeeCee…I think the writers threw a curve for a lot of us based on how they ended Tuesday’s episode. I was getting ready to have to look forward to seeing Carly and Kiki being wheeled into GH’s emergency. Soooo glad they didn’t fall back on that storyline like Y&R has done with the towering inferno disaster.

Kiki is so dumb drunk or sober…she wouldnt know if she hit herself…lol…most soap car accidents end up in the woods-funny how front and back of the car is usually surrounded by trees…she must have crashed sideways…lol…and notice no damage to the trees…lol…i was hoping Carly got lost in Salems woods and is confronted by Ben holding a necktie…now that would be worth delaying the reveal of Jason a day or two…lol

Oh, Rose, I was hoping they would get wheeled to the hospital too, just so Kiki would need Nina’s blood. Does my mind border on the macabre, or what? Lol.

@jimh.
So, Kiki sideswiped Carly’s car ( isn’t Carly rich? Where’s her Diablo?), and Carly ended up in the fake woods to avoid her. How did she get home? I think Morgan said he found her passed out? Where?. I missed that. But if she was driving in the wrong direction, how did she end up on the right road? So confused….I really wasn’t paying attention. I have to watch that part again in the morning. Hard to watch TV with my son. He just wants to see Maxie…..kept asking where she was. LOL.

I think we’ve wasted enough air-time on the character of Kiki. I think that if the writers wrote a complete character rejuvenation-using her real name, Lauren, sent the character back to school, got her a job, and stopped being so incredibly desperate by still wanting to give the guy that did you wrong twice a chance-perhaps, she could be rectified. All I can say, is that if we have to suffer through the pitfalls of Kiki, at least we have a recast. I wouldn’t be able to suffer otherwise. Bryan Craig was really showing improvement a while back when Morgan… Read more »

I really believe that Bryan has the acting chops but the writers are doing nothing for him with substance…look what is happening to Patrick Drake… he is leaving the show for lack of storyline…. what a waste ..they secure GREAT talent and do ZERO with them….

How many obstacles can you put in Carly’s way before it starts to look like the Keystone Cops? First her seatbelt is stuck and the phone is out of reach. Then she falls out of the car and drops her phone in a puddle. Then she fishes out her phone, but she trips on a branch, hits her head against a rock and passes out. And I guess I missed a step but how in the world did Jake find her?

I didnt get to watch much today…i had a scary 20 minute choking incident…i couldnt reach my landline to call 911…my cell phone had no signal…i nearly passed out in the bathroom…this really happened…these obstacles made me miss part of the show i waited a year to see…luckily i recovered and im fine now-i hope…so i guess Carlys obstacles are possible…for Jake finding her…i guess its the only road in PC…lol

Well this is a soap so you knew Carly was going to hit a stumbling block. ITS WAS ONLY TUESDAY! She will eventually let the DNA out of the bag! I hope she just hugs Jake for five minutes and says nothing! Wouldnt that be something if you lost your best friend and found out he or she was alive? Do you think Franco will get blamed for the crash? I was disappointed on how Lulu reacted on Monday at the Haunted Star when she found out about Dante’s affair. HOWEVER, Emme knocked it out of the park on Tuesday… Read more »

Hey, Timmm.
It is very probable that Franco will get blamed. It’s his car. But, he was home all night. Will he be believed? Will Nina? I am assuming they share the same bed? She would have been aware if Franco had left, yes. I guess it depends how heavy a sleeper one is.
Regardless, it’s just Franco’s luck to be the fall guy. Will Kiki fess up, if it comes to that? And, if so; will Franco take the blame to protect Kiki?

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Franco will take the blame. He has this unusual relationship with her. If Kiki doesnt pan out and be Nina’s daughter I could see Kiki and Franco sleeping together. UNLESS he sees her as a daughter he never had. If he doesnt I’m sure alcohol will be involved. I hope not, I like their relationship. IF she is Nina’s daughter he could be the bridge to the two of them bonding.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Oh, no Timmm. I hope not. He loves Kiki as s daughter. Ewwww; that would really be perverted. I am glad they share this platonic relationship. Kiki needs a father figure and a strong shoulder to cry on. I feel sorry for Kiki…..she is so lost. She’s just lashing out; with good reason.
I think she’s coming into her own nicely. Later.
Luv-ya.

Jimh predicted this a few days ago. Something would keep Carly from revealing the truth. Sustaining narrative suspense is tricky. You gotta keep people very interested in what will happen but if you draw it out too long, you lose them. This has happened. Somebody, anybody, puleeeze, tell Jake the truth now!! Luke and Dante’s scene was well-acted but too long and didn’t hit on a couple of points. Lulu did have a part in the infidelity. She’s being too self-righteous. She’s acting like cheating is totally unheard of in her world. Ha! I liked what Valerie said to Dylan… Read more »

Laura Wright was phenomenal. You could just see how Carly was barely holding everything together. She didn’t even have to make major facial expressions to convey her shock & trepidation. It was all in her eyes and mouth. As for the adultery reveal, all scenes were true IMO. Well-played by all. Dante doesn’t say anything because he knows he deserves all of Lulu’s rage. However, I think some of that should be directed at Dylan, the Tool. What a jerk. I hope Maxie & Lulu let him have it with both barrels when they find out he orchestrated Lulu’s public… Read more »

The scenes from both Monday and Tuesday on GH were all amazing. Lulu (Emme Marcy Rylan) is so amazing when she gets something to chew on. I loved her on Y&R and she is just slamming it on GH. Kudos and bravos and all that jazz. Dante didn’t stick up for himself enough. Yes he cheated but Lulu was keeping secrets and telling lies and her not owning up to those as problems in her marriage was one sided. Cheating is never really acceptable but when something gets to the point where one or more partners in a marriage want… Read more »

Lol, su. Cougars, as in cats? Young women think about sex almost as much, but may not admit it. Boys? Well, it is obvious, for ‘obvious’ reasons.
Morgan can only think about sex because he lacks white matter in the brain.

I’m sorry, Mateo, I respectfully disagree. Dante supposedly loves his wife, yes? Why did he cheat? He did it because he is weak and succumbed to his ‘crotch’. Valerie was after him from day one….like a bitch in heat. He knew this. He is not a teen whose hormones are uncontrollable. He felt it; sensed it….whatever. He had the same urges; therefore, a stronger, honorable man would have avoided being alone with her like the plague. If Lulu even thinks about going back to him, I will lose all respect for her. Look at how Dante reacted when he thought… Read more »

Lulu is NOT blameless in this portrayal of marriage. Her focus was not on her marriage or her husband. She intentionally lied to her husband about what she was doing. If she was such a good devoted wife, she would have said, “Dante, my brothers and my family are in danger. I have to go and you have to keep this quiet until I return.” But she didn’t do that. She lied over and over again about what she was doing. And then she included Dylan in the lie. She abandoned her own child for the sake of “family”. If… Read more »

@Mateo. I will not dispute or negate most of your words, Mateo. However, I believe you missed my point. What Dante did was act first and ask questions later. My point? He saw this thing with Valerie happening way before Lulu left. Let’s just respect each other’s opinions, Mateo. I would have been more receptive to Dante if he had been a man and told Lulu what he had done. But, he chose the cowardly way out. Not to spare Lulu’s feelings, but to save his own arse. We could argue this until the cows come home, and still be… Read more »

Hi Mateo…I so agree with you! I just wanted to shake Dante into defending himself. I also agree that cheating is unacceptable…however as in many things in life there are extenuating circumstances… Dante is a great guy…great son, brother and husband. He’s adored Lulu from the day he met her, has supported her when she returned defiant and confused after being kidnapped, stood by her through her mom and dad issues, etc. We could see how a weave of lies that Lulu told…albeit her intentions were good in that she didn’t want to put her brother’s life at risk…led to… Read more »

I have been quite impressed with LW’s work with the facial recognition and DNA reveals of the (too dragged out), Jake is Jason story. Lots of subtle emotions flooding over her face with each moment running by as she goes from consternation to denial then moving on to realization that her earlier recognition of quirks that were solely Jason’s were signs that this is her friend followed the dawning hope that this really is Jason. Sorry. I am in the minority here but for me the miscast recast L leaves me cold and unmoved. This version L has been written… Read more »

The scenes with Dante and Lulu on the docks were the first scenes that I was not completely nauseated by Emme Rylan. For a couple of years now-all we’ve heard about is the repetitive dialogue about whether or not she should have a baby, then a second baby, and the ridiculous stolen embryo storyline. I thought that Emme really did a great job during her scenes, as did Dominic. I really Jake the way that he is-as Jake Doe (although, I have to add, I laughed out loud at Sabrina’s wedding gift to Elizabeth-the champagne flutes. Elizabeth’s initials-E.D. I could… Read more »

First let me say that LW continues to bring her A game! She hits all of the emotional beats one would expect from this storyline! Unfortunately for me, this storyline has gone on too long and I am no longer emotionally invested. As for the Lante reveal-sad to say it left me cold! DZ looked like he was sleepwalking through most of his scenes (using the Sonny shooting/Lante breakup over Brenda as a yardstick) and although Emme did her best in the 2 years she’s been there, I couldn’t help but think how much more emotionally invested I would have… Read more »

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.
