GENERAL HOSPITAL: Darby Pops Up Onto The Scene & Ned Says Goodbye To Olivia!

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, former Miss Alabama USA, Jesica Ahlberg, showed up on the canvas as Darby – a sexy young gal who has hankering for Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig).

While Kiki (Hayley Erin) is getting sauced, Morgan tries to talk to her, but she wants no part of him.  He takes a seat away from her having a drink of his own.  Enter Darby, who spots Morgan and sits down at his table and the flirtation begins. When Molly (Haley Pullos) and TJ (Tequan Richmond) arrive, they meet up with Darby to go to a party in which Darby extends an invitation to Morgan.

At first, he doesn’t agree to go, but after he tries to talk to Kiki one more time and she resists, he takes Darby up on the invitation.  Is this going to be Morgan’s new love interest?  What do you think the point of Darby is to the Port Charles canvas? Is she connected to someone else?

Elsewhere, breaking up is hard to do, as Wally Kurth (Ned) popped up for a one day appearance to close the loop on the budding Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and Ned romance and storyline, since Wally is now on contract at DAYS.  In story,  Olivia was going to propose to Ned, but before she can he breaks her heart, and says he can’t continue their relationship as long as she hides the truth from Julian (William deVry) that little baby Leo is the mobster’s bio-son.  Ned says he found himself again through being with his daughter Brook Lynn and singing again, all thanks to Liv.   They tell each other they love one another, but Ned ultimately leaves thus ending the storyline.  What will Olivia do now?  

So, what do you think of these two story beats that played out on yesterday’s GH?  Are you intrigued? Not interested? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I’m not impressed with Darby, but I’ll see where it goes. I do think Hayley Erin has really improved as Kiki. I never really cared for the character even when Kristin Alderson played her, so I’m surprised that I even care what is happening to her but I do.

It was good to have closure on the Ned/Olivia pairing and Wally Kurth sure is HOT. I’m enjoying him on DOOL, but I’ll miss Ned a lot.

GH is holding my interest for the most part. Less Corinthos would be nice.

Oh, yeah, MBmom…..anytime I see any comment on ‘less Corinthos’, I cannot resist answering. Off with his head.
Ned and Olivia paring was bittersweet, but it needed to happen, I guess.
We do not know Darby yet.
Now Kiki is going to play a trick and have the snacks taste horrid.

Couldn’t agree more that Haley Erin has turned in some great work of late. Kiki finally has a strong personality of her own and is not just some blank slate other characters write on. Also really loving the new “family” formed by Franco, Kiki and Nina with all it’s trials and tribulations. Seems like GH is working hard to establish stronger family units, given that Alexis and Julian just got a new home, the Corinthos clan is closing ranks, and Patrick and Sam are blending families. Heartbroken by the Ned/Olivia break up but really happy DOOL allowed Wally to come… Read more »

I liked the actress playing Darby but she seemed a bit too old to be a contemporary of Molly’s. She’s stunningly beautiful and I look forward to seeing her on my screen. The Olivia / Ned twist is obviously contrived due to the unavailability of Wally Kurth and, as such, it rings hollow and is unsatisfying. Long live GH!

Completely agree about the age difference between TJ & Molly, & Morgan & Darby. Darby looks like she’s a contemporary of Maxie & Lulu’s more than Molly’s classmate. Maybe she took like seven gap years between high school & college.

Ned was okay with lying about the baby dying and helping Liv convince Julian his baby was dead, but he is not okay with her pretending she adopted a baby—huh???? I get they had to find some reason to break those two apart but honestly they could have come up with a better excuse. Too bad Days always makes WK wear suits, he looked really good in jeans– As for Darby, too early to tell, but my first impression of the character was not positive. I don’t know why all soaps have such a difficult time writing for younger characters,… Read more »

I know, right, Mary SF? Lame excuse.
Furthermore where does Alexis get off trying to have Leo taken from his mother. I guess, not so surprising, since she, as Carly, is not mother of the century. Here we go again…TWO custody cases. What gall! There are a myriad of reasons Leo should stay put.
Speaking of Leo…he is such a cute, calm baby, but he does not look like either of them. Something’s off with this baby’s looks.

Hi, Fanny, my love. Right? Leo does look Hispanic….more like Sonny than Carlos. How is that possible? Olivia is fair to medium skinned and so is Julian. So, where does Leo get his coloring? He certainly does not look Italian. TPTB need to find another baby. Furthermore, Leo is supposed to be almost six months old. He does not look more than three months, at the most, to me. He should not even be wrapped in a blankie as a neonate any more. Any mother can say how a six-month old can pump his/her little legs energetically. This kid barely… Read more »

@CeeCee….Well, how else is Alexis going to provide a child for her much younger boyfriend? Not only is she too old to conceive, but probably even to adopt, and she sees Julian’s babylust as the writing on the wall! How I wish this latest plot twist would precipitate a pairing with Olivia. They make so much more sense as a couple, not just as Leo’s bio-parents, but as two highly-attractive, smoking hot individuals who are age-comparable. Perfect fit. Let the fireworks begin!

@Shay. Well, Girl…tell me about it! Alexis is on a mission. Now, we are talking about a sane, intelligent woman who is head over heels in love with a mobster. She is definitely deluding herself if she thinks Julian has said bye-bye to a life of crime. Right. Sonny hides behind his ridiculous coffee importing company, or whatever-it-is. Julian hides behind what? His Art Gallery? Does Alexis think she will get extra ‘cuddles’ from Ju-Ju if she start a custody war? I sound like a broken record, Shay, if I say so myself. To add insult to injury, the writers… Read more »

Yes, how right you are, Timmm. I couldn’t put my finger on it. TPTB certainly picked the wrong baby….but, as it often happens in soaps, there will be a brand new baby in a matter of weeks. Later.

@CeeCeeGirl….Oh yes, I concur with both Fanny and you on “Leo the Bambino”…..he almost looks as if he had a bit of a “topping off” of his tan on a beach in St. Tropez during his mama-imposed vacay away from Port Charles, as opposed to being stashed in, where was it…Bensonhurst??? LOL. Not sure what the showrunners were aiming for with with that particular casting choice of “neonate,” as you so aptly put it!

Hmmm. You got me thinking. Maybe, I do have a ‘thing’ for Sonny, ….ummm, subconsciously? Ha…NEVER! I suppose the “doth protest too much” is a legitimate statement, considering I talk about Sonny incessantly. I need to ponder this, Shay. Regardless, I could never be attracted to a man who thinks he’s too big for his britches. You know what I think? I think he should be given a mini role….very fitting, no?

At any rate,I was most surely jesting you about Sonny….he is an utterly loathsome character and I know you have far better taste than that, CeeCeeGirl! It’s just that your ongoing antipathy for him is so very amusing that I simply wanted to get a rise out you regarding “Dimples!”… Read more »

To be honest GH doesn’t really have a lot of young actors, so Darby does have a reason for her existent almost all the young characters are related and they all can’t screw each other. As for Olivia , I feel she’s run her course, what really is the point of Olivia anymore? Yes she’s funny, but not very bright, she can’t make up her mind if she want to let a thug be her baby daddy, I would left port Charles with Ned and stayed gone, shes got money and Ned had money so no good excuse.

So, she/Darby is the actress/model the former Miss Alabama USA..

Olivia’s secret is compelling ONLY because of the actress portraying her. Lisa Lociero is so amazing as Olivia. Gritty, savvy and classy at the same time. Her devotion to her children is amazing. I really like her character. Ned leaving is not a big deal to me. But watching Olivia grieve over losing him again was almost too much to bear for her. (and me as I watched her meltdown). The Darby story is of no importance at all. So a new girl for Morgan to , ummm how do I say this tactfully, hook up with? Who cares? Not… Read more »

Since I am not a Kiki fan, the introduction of Darby into the young mix comes at a very good time. Kiki is bent on self-destruction and Morgan deserves better despite his recent actions. Kiki is a mess who needs Dr. Kevin’s immediate attention. Actually I hope the writers go ahead and realize fan speculation with a story which makes Kiki the daughter of Nina rather than Ava. Molly has come a long way from the starry-eyed adolescent to the judgmental, unforgiving, brat. Genes will tell, and she definitely has her father’s genes. I find her relationship with TJ to… Read more »

Hi, Engrady.. There is something to be said about the acting of a seventeen year old, comparatively speaking. Molly has grown up….somewhat. The actress is very good and beautiful. Haley/Molly is playing a College age young woman of possibly 19-21? This is all Haley can deliver. One cannot bleed a stone. She is just too young to play this role, and, it does show when she is placed next to these older players. Morgan is detestable. Remember how he lied, connived and tricked Kiki into marrying him? Then, he sleeps with her mother/presumed aunt. In my opinion, Morgan deserves nothing… Read more »

ANOTHER reason to hate Morgan! He gets to lock lips with a real hottie! He will bring her down to. He is a real cancer! Has anyone noticed his alleged bipolar symptoms have not acted up lately? He has not seen a doctor and he is not on meds. Did they scratch this story and just chalk up his behavior to being an azzhole? Anyway, Darby is too old to be hanging with Molly and T.J. They walked out of the Metro and she looked like their nanny! Just like the other day, Kristina and NuJoss were walking out of… Read more »

They keep throwing Tony Geary, Maurice Bernard and for a little while Jane Elliot at us as potential Emmy nominees but I think in one scene with Billy, Leslie Charleston killed it. She deserves to be a Emmy winner like Margo Martindale was for a very small part on The Americans last year. Talk about an underrated actor. Tony Geary got praise no matter how he behaved or how stupid the performance was because it was loud and obnoxious. Monica needs to be brought back and allowed to be part of the Quartermaine family.

Timmm
Guest

I agree, Leslie and Billy were phenomenal together. ONE scene! Why? Tony gets respect because he is a soap legend and the guy can act. Fluke turned out to be a bad story and Tony’s illness didnt help because the Fluke story drug so long but the black and white episode will be his reel and it will probably earn him another Emmy. Plus, he is retired and Hollywood likes to tip their hat. I dont miss Luke but I loved the character.

CeeCee

Yes, Lellingw. There was a discussion, at length, I may add, what a far-reaching performance by both Leslie and Billy just in that one scene. But, the bosses are oblivious to anyone else; or so it seems. Why else are they resuscitating the “mobster” in Sonny? They should concentrate on cleaning him up…scrub the grease off his head and face before evil rises its ugly head again. Yuck!! If all that posturing and strutting, even from his wheelchair, was meant to impress us….that he’ DA MAN, did not work for me. I still liken him to a snake in the… Read more »

I didnt mention Dillon because he is a non-factor! The actor is okay. They didnt age him right. You cannot be a filmmaker and live in Port Charles. I laugh when the kids grow up in PC and “Go to College!” That means one of two things, they are either leaving the show or going to PCU which is never shown! Its a waste of time! You can be in the medical field, own a restaurant, be a cop or mobster, thats it! That story they have with his movie on the Haunted Star is horrible! It wastes the talents… Read more »

Thanks, CeCe. Of course that is what I meant. The audience doesn’t mean anything until it hits their bottom line and even then only some of us count. Broadcast survives only because cable is so expensive. If the costs were lowered, broadcast would be out on its behind. Terrible model for television show creation.

And once again substance is sacrificed for looks on a soap. Darby has zero chemistry with Morgan or the teen set. She looks a lot older than they do, and nobody cares about the other three why are we adding another one? I wish Wally wasn’t leaving, I watch both GH and DOOL, and the Ned character is so much better. Hate to see the Q’s downsizing again. They can’t replace Edward, but how about bringing on a GOOD actor to play his long lost brother or something to lead the family along side Tracy, give him a wife and… Read more »

Hi, Adam. Thank you for NOT saying Jesica cannot act. It just befuddles the mind how anyone can automatically give a review on this girl’s acting when she’s only been on for a whole second. Young actors/actresses need to start somewhere. And, it’s great to see vets on our screen…but, realistically, many of these actors/actresses are older and are at a time in their lives where they do not want to do it any longer. This is what makes the world go ’round. Young people need work; so why not? So what if she is Miss Alabama or Miss USA… Read more »

GH has this knack for hiring young woman with zero acting ability. There’s nothing special about her looks, so what’s the catch GH? GH should focus on the actors already established on the show and stop putting talented actors on recurring status.

I like all the characters that almost everyone that’s posted so far complained about. I LIKE Bryan Craig and his portrayal of Morgan. I think he’s a very emotive actor, good looking if not in the classical sense snd I find his character as the deeply feeling, passionate, wounded Morgan complex and dynamic. I also like Kiki. I think Erin? Is that her name? Well anyway, the actress to be beautiful and quite convincing. I love her relationship with Franco and I hope that this new budding warming up of Kiki to Nina continues, whether or not she’s her real… Read more »
