GENERAL HOSPITAL: Curtis is Stunned When Marshall Reveals He is his Father

Courtesy/ABC

Monday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it some very intense scenes between Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Marshall (Robert Gossett).

While at Curtis’ Savoy nightclub, Marshall confesses to Curtis that he in, in fact, the father Curtis believed to have died all those years ago, thus causing Curtis and his brother to grow up without a father.

Marshall explains he’s the man Curtis has been searching for his whole life … ‘Marshall Thomas Ashford’.

At first in denial, Curtis wants Marshall to leave the premises. Marshall tells his son to look at him and in his eyes. Curtis cannot comprehend how if he was alive, he could have left his children behind causing them a lifetime of instability.

It’s then that Marshall goes on to say that he could not come forward before because it wasn’t safe until now for him to reveal himself.  Marshall then asks Curtis for a chance and to take things one step at time.

Curtis demands that Marshall gets out of the nightclub immediately.  Before he leaves, Marshall leaves behind a family photo and once alone, Curtis breaks down and cries.

So, it appears that everyone’s guesses were correct – that Marshall is Curtis’ dad – but what’s the back-story, or is there a twist coming?

I had figured out that Marshall was Curtis’ father. Back story? Maybe he’s been in witness protection all of these years. How that is connected to the band that Luke provided I don’t have any thoughts on that.

How many back from the dead storylines is GH running with now? A common soap trope – but this is ridiculous.

Marshall
Sonny (presumed dead by all except Nina)
Victor
Drew
Peter (assumed dead after Finn pushed him)
Nikolas (still playing out after 2 years)
Nurse Chloe

Dan and Chris are venturing too far down into Carlivati territory. What’s next? A hologram of Steve Hardy?

They made it way too obvious that this was Curtis’s father the moment he set foot in Port Charles. Great scenes yesterday between him and Curtis though. I’ve often said that Curtis is probably the only post-February 2012 GH character worth keeping, and yesterday was a good example of why. As far as the backstory here, I’m thinking it’s going to be somewhat of a re-write of the Sonny & Mike story… where Marshall got himself into debt or some other kind of trouble with some “bad people” and thought that the only way to keep his family safe was… Read more »

If Curtis is the only post 2012 character you’d like to keep, you’re okay with losing Ava, Britt, Liesl and Trina?

Trina’s OK so far, and probably a better influence on Spencer than Esme, obviously. And Britt is better than she used to be.

As far as Ava & Liesl go…. genuinely hated both of them at first. Frank & his crew are trying hard to “humanize” both of them, but too much of either one still gives me the dry heaves. I’d take either of them over Gladys though. She’s probably the only current character on the show who is more useless than Whiny Heiny.

Trina is one of the best teen performers on GH in a long time.

Ava has come along way since Denise DeMuccio (one of the worst Ron storylines). While she’ll never pay for killing Connie, she’s definitely more rootable.

Britt has a lot more dimension under Dan & Chris.

Liesl was a bit cartoonish under Ron, softened a bit under Jelly, but now is definitely a favorite of many fans.

Totally agree, Steve. Whenever Trina appears, I find myself smiling. Especially when she levels that evil Esme. Trina is a unique character with her own values and strong sense of self..and a lot of fun, too. She certainly can do better than that loser Spencer!

Is it me. Thinking out loud here – I was underwhelmed with Curtis’ delivery and range of emotion in discovering that CatDaddy is his father. Is it just me. I expected more emotion and relatability in the delivery. Hey , I’m not an actor but I want to watching and believe a character rather than watch someone acting.

Love Curtis—#1 GH character—but mismatched with Mrs/Dr Robinson, who truly gets on my nerves.
Oh, by the by—at the risk of getting criticism by a select few, but worth it;–thank you for your perfect usage of pronouns—sort of petty on my part ( can’t take the teacher out of me)—“…between him and Curtis…”—“him”–object of the preposition, “between”.
All this “wokeness” is massacring Academia.

I’ve always liked Curtis, especially his chemistry with Billy Miller’s Drew. Their BFF scenes were refreshing. It’s nice to see male characters sharing and helping each other without all that macho competition. But this story doesn’t interest me yet. Too much buildup and, so far, zilch payoff.

I knew, and assume that after his second appearance most all knew that the mysterious man is Curtis’s father..
No surprise.
Anyways, the daddy return holds absolutely no interest for me.
I’m waiting for Victor to put on his Cassadine..

And for Valentin to strut his Cassadine bloodline.
To mention;
Shawn comes off as a hierarchy member of the Crips or Bloods.

New spin on Curtis and “ the stranger.” And well done between the two actors. I’m a bit surprised to see Robert Gossett on GH after last seeing him in one of my favorite tv shows, ‘The Closer’…even though he played a bit of an sob on that series,

Rose,
I had forgotten he was on that show. I loved both that and Major Crimes, the successor.

Violet…Yes, loved Major Crimes as well. Really liked the cast in both. Fun to see Mary McDonnell turn into a nice Chief Inspector. Hope I got names and tiles right.

Have always loved Robt. Gossett. Hope he doesn’t dissapoint and turn into a bad guy. I bet Curtis’s old Auntie will give him a tongue lashing when she sees him again.

Violet…yes it will be verrry interesting to see how Auntie handles Curtis’s long lost father. Especially since they are all good actors.

Just made a comment on this subject.I guess no one is interested in this or anything else, just old odds and ends, the same for weeks. Maybe we are seeing the end of Michael’s column.

Obviously there is more than meets the eye with Curtis’s father and Auntie. There were rumors way back that she might be his mother, not just his Aunt and today we could tell that Stella was holding back on some family secret.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline?

Johnny Wactor on Brando’s GH Demise: “I Have Been Blown Away By The Reaction From The Fans, I Had No Idea That You Guys Cared So Much About My Character”

Social media was abuzz when Brando suddenly died following successful surgery after being attacked by the ‘hook’.  Some fans felt Wactor’s presence will be sorely missed; while others shared that they felt Brando was not a necessary character.

Wactor took all of the comments like a champ and in his video message added: “Whether you were excited to see Brando Corbin killed off, or outraged and have questions, man, I’m just so lucky to have been on this show, truly.”

As he concluded his ‘thank you’s’, Johnny let GH viewers know he does have some other projects that you will see him in very soon, sharing: “Thank you so much for letting me bring Brando Corbin to life.  Thank you for caring, and thank you for all the support and the well-wishes for my future endeavors, whether that’s back in Port Charles at some point, or another show, or other films … which there’s some coming.”

Lastly, Johnny added, “I’ll miss ya, and you enjoy the rest of the week.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brando Dies … But Not From His Wounds

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, poor Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) was hit with yet another punch to the gut.  After losing her baby, Liam, back in December of 20201, she has now lost her husband, Brando (Johnny Wactor), in s shocking turn events that played out in Brando’s hospital room.

Finally coming to (following being ‘hooked’ by the mysterious figure) after surviving hours of surgery from his wounds, he goes coughs up blood and then goes into a massive seizure right in front of Sasha.

Panicked, Sasha calls for help, where Portia (Brook Kerr) and her team run in to try to save Brando.  Next, we get a montage of the love story of Brando and Sasha, which is never a good sign on soap operas – as it more often than not – signals the end of the line for a character.

After Portia is completely rattled by why Brando is dying when the surgery is a success, eventually he passes away.  Portia comes out of his hospital room and tells Sasha they did everything they could.  Just then, Brando’s mom, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) along with Nina (Cynthia Watros), come by and all the women are struck with heartbreaking grief.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene and asks Portia what happened and she reveals there were sudden complications.

Wanting a moment alone to say goodbye to his cousin, Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Brando to take care of Liam and Mike when he sees them in heaven. Sonny also promises to take care of Sasha and Gladys. Next, Sasha wants Sonny to go into Brando’s room with her, and they are joined by Nina and Gladys, who all stand over his bedside in tears.

Elsewhere, Portia finds Finn (Michael Easton) to look over Brando’s medical reports and case, and relates that Brando’s symptoms don’t track with what happened to him when he was brought into the ER and what happened in surgery.  She ponders if there is a more sinister explanation for his death, hoping Finn (even though he is an infectious disease doc) can help shed some light.
