General Hospital Delivers Super-Sized Promo: The Truth About Wiley To Be Revealed

Courtesy/ABC

This week, General Hospital is going full-tilt set to deliver the moment that fans of the show have been waiting for since back in September 2018, when on one fateful night  …

(Cliff Notes version here) Brad and Lucas’s adopted child dies, Nelle gives birth in the woods with an assist from Liesl. Brad and Nelle comes face to face on the road; the two switch babies and keep the long-held secret that Brad and Lucas are actually raising Nelle and Michael’s bio-son. Meanwhile, Willow thinks she is Wiley’s birth mother, having no idea, that her baby died with Brad.

Julian has been in on the secret, and when Brad finally revealed to Lucas the truth about Wiley, it caused their car to crash (Remember: Kendra who in the other car, who was trying to kill Alexis) which has left Lucas with only fragmented memories of that night.

Realizing everything is getting too close for comfort for the truth to come out; Brad accepts a job in Portland and is moving with Lucas and Wiley, while Nelle is selling her shares of ELQ to Valentin to get out of dodge too, so she can follow them, we think.

But in one of the best promo’s we have ever seen for a daytime drama series, as you see below; will Lucas remember and reveal the truth to Michael?

From the cast credits at the end of the promo, to the setting up of the tale, this is one promo not to be missed.  Check it out below.

Now, let us know, how you think the truth will come to light that Michael will find out he is Wiley (AKA Jonah) biological father and that their was a baby switch? Will it be as teased in the promo, or some other way? Comment below.

Nelle will take the baby and run after the child survives a plane crash that kills Brad and Lucas…Willow has a breakdown and is in an accident..she needs blood and Nina has her type…as does Sasha..Willow and Sasha are revealed as fraternal twins of Nina…Chase gives Chase(LOL) after Nelle with Micheal and Sasha not far behind…Nelle and the baby go over a cliff and their car plunges into the ocean..Chase and Micheal rescues the baby but Nelle is missing and presumed drowned..Lucas and an injured Brad turn up alive…Willow still believes the baby is really hers and makes a play… Read more »

Oh, Jimh, I couldn’t pull up the real promo, so I’m playing yours out in my head. Nothing is really out of the realm of possibility! But I do like Willow & Chase together and I want Brad & Lucas to survive this reveal, however unlikely. It’s been a long time coming…let’s hope they don’t screw it up.

Sometimes i like to make out a story of my own…and the one on Days came true..that Julie’s son David and Valerie would have a son together and i did send that idea to Corday years ago!!!

WOW, Jimmy!!—–you always read my mind—-how long have I been saying ( actually we both did….since forever) Willow and Sasha were twins?…..albeit, I admit I was soooo far off with Kiki. Not my fault. The writers steered me in that direction. LOL.
Hey, don’t sell yourself short—everything you said has roots and legs, my friend.

Neither am I, Jimmy–neither am I. My back hurts. LOL.
You”re right—-we all know Nina has a daughter out there—what if it’s a son?
Whoever it is, should be known—been dragging since Nina first made an appearance. Years ago. When plots linger and linger in limbo, the thrill dissipates. The interest wanes. That’s my opinion.
The same with the Wiley drama—or should I say; trauma!! How long? When he’s an adult and ends up marrying a future sibling of whom he will not be aware he has?

Awesome promo. This is probably my favorite storyline on GH during the last 1.5 years. Nelle is a great villain.

Ugh.

Another baby switch story wasted with a speedy wrap-up. If a show is going to invest in a baby switch then have the good sense to back burner it and let it simmer for a decade or so. There would be infinitely more drama in Wiley being ripped from the only fathers he’s ever known and forced to live with Michael and his career criminal family if he was actually old enough to realize the raw deal he was getting.

For some reason, I thought this story started in the summer of 2018? Whatever, it has been a very long story and I wanted it to play like this. FINALLY a story that wasn’t rushed and had us praying for the payoff but not getting it until the writers felt it was going on long enough. The old way of telling stories. All I can say is BRAVO to everyone involved in this from the actors to the writers. I know alot of people wanted this to end some time ago but most stories are told that way nowadays so… Read more »

It did start on July 31, 2018. I don’t know why they said September 2018. It began on July 31, 2018. I don’t like how GH drug out the baby switch for a year and a half. Thankfully it finally ended on February 19, 2020.

Amazing that they gave the promo so much time and extra props for tagging the actors’ names at the end. Can’t wait to see this play out. It won’t just be one show; it’ll linger with consequences for a really long time (if they’re smart).

Why did they make the Wiley reveal all about Carly? Lucas, Michael (heck, even Bobbie) should have played more prominently as they had more impact.

Nelle vs Willow was a darn good fight.

Good question the answer is she is the pet and when I read about it I deleted it! The show insulted our intelligence Lucas should have been the one crying and expressing his hurt his anger why does every story have to center around Carly and Sonny her screaming gosh I dislike her character and LW overacting just drives me nuts now I guess your token gay couple that they have never truly written for just leaves the canvas while Michael no back bone at all let’s Mommy do his work for him! Ugh

Boop

General Hospital insults our intelligence constantly by allowing Carly too much power over other people’s lives. As I tell those with whom I converse , this show would fire me the same day because these overly power hunger characters such as Carly , Jason ,Sonny , Sam ,and whoever else- would avoid me as if I had a serious disease after I tell them some things that they don’t want to hear ! As Carly and the others are written boldly , write the other characters with a backbone , also.

Celia
Guest

Absolutely, Boop—most to-the-point post yet!! Have you noticed how as soon as Carly “accepted” Sasha, everyone else followed suit? The queen hath spoken; ergo it must be so. The conformity; the kowtowing , the subservience to these “elites” is laughable. I could understand if there were some kind of omnipotent aura—-a specialty ( well, I will concede Laura her skill–albeit exagerated) that would leave my mouth agape—–no star-sruck fan here. Sam? Sonny? Jason? C’est dommage—give me Ava all day…. never a dull moment; the ultimate character with charm, finesse, style, that touch of evil and charisma.

Boop

Celia, I agree with what you said about Sasha ; I also thought about how Carly accepted Sasha by saying that she reminded her of herself. I don’t understand why she couldn’t see some of herself in Nell. After , I saw Michael walk out of that house with the baby, I was done with General Hospital until I see some of my favorites win some battles.( Ava, Valentin, Julian ,etc.) Now that Taggart is back , hopefully , he won’t become a Sonny worshiper. I didn’t like him when he was at G.H. before ; it wasn’t because he… Read more »

Yeah, Boop, hypocrisy abounds in PC. From what I’ve heard about Carly, I don’t see any parallels between her and Sasha. Sasha happened to be at the wrong place at the right time for herself and Valentin. I’ve always liked her —-whatever she did was not from malicious intent—she ‘got’ caught up within the imbroglio. Nelle, on the other hand, as Carly, leaves a lot to be desired. Yet, the PTB ‘forgive’ Carly’s shortcomings, to put it mildly, so similar to Nelle’s, by giving her distorted dominance a pass. I said earlier that TPTB stir the cauldron—I changed my mind.… Read more »

Exaggerated—sp.
I wonder, was the original Carly put on such a pedestal? I’ve only been watching for five years—–is it because she’s married to Sonny?
——which begs the question—–what is so special about Sonny; the sainted mafioso quasi-warrior.? Poor example of a true malvivente. I guess Bonaparte has his day, too.

Carly is both Michael’s mother and Lucas’s sister, so she had every right to jump down Brad’s throat.

Though I suspect the real motive here was to assemble the future murder suspects when Nelle eventually gets her long overdue relocation to Hell.

We’re looking forward to seeing her!

Boop
Guest

Well, Satan , she should take Michael , Carly , and Sonny with her. The way that you like Carly and family , I like anyone anti – Carly and family.

I agree with you about Carly’s role. General Hospital gives Carly too much say in other people’s lives. If G.H. doesn’t change doesn’t write for everyone , I’m planning to stop watching.

If G.H. doesn’t attempt to please the other fans of the show, I’m planning to stop watching . Sonny and his group are always winning -while everyone else suffers. I left the show a few years back when Sonny was allowed more power than the Quartermains . In reality , I know that mobsters had/have power ; however, they knew/know not to flaunt it in front of the police , government , and society. Plus, the writers have everyone running scare of Sonny ; real life gangsters exhibit their power : win, lose , or draw. I’ve seen the Godfather… Read more »

Which “other fans” should they be “trying to please”?? Jason has been a character since 1982, and an ACTUAL speaking character since 1991. Sonny has been around since 1993 & Carly since 1997 or so. The Steve Hardy/Lee Baldwin OG generation are pretty much all dead & gone. No way to bring them back. All the interlopers hired by Valentini since 2012 are completely useless, with few exceptions (and none of those exceptions are named Frodd, Ava, Whiny Heiny, or Ohbrect!). So exactly which other characters should they be writing for? Hell, I think it’s actually a good thing they… Read more »

Believe it or not ,there are other fans who aren’t onboard with the mob and family; those are the ones of whom I’m referring .( which you know ) I never cared for Taggert when he was there before; however, it’s hard for me to believe that he will work with Sonny. Some of the characters who you named , I like ; I didn’t say love.
I’ve written this before , I applaud Carly for sticking with Sonny regardless of what the circumstances are; other characters should learn from them about what it means for better – for worse.

Boop I guess it’s adious to you then, because the things and people you hate are the main thread of GH. It has always been this way. Different times and same type of characters. I have been watching from the beginning, and I thought at first as you and others do, about the Corinthos, but I have since accepted that Sonny and Jason are good people that do bad things. There seem to be some of the same characters on every soap. It’s always been that way and I’ve been watching soaps for over 60 years. Carly for instance is… Read more »

I understand about how you feel , Violet; however, just as Carly forcefully states her opinion , the other characters should be afforded the same privilege . I appreciate that you have been watching for sixty years , I’ve been watching about the same number of years. As a child, I sat with my aunt and watched all of the old Soaps- from Guiding Light , As the World Turns , Love Of Life , Edge of Night , on and on. Yes, each show has a character that wears on the nerves ; however, I still don’t the writers… Read more »

That’s a direct contradiction, Miss Violet. Good people who do bad things? There is no good in murder. EVER, Nonetheless, I do agree that all soaps are guilty of this good-bad personae. …..oxymoron.
I don’t like Sonny. I don’t like Jason. I don’t like Sam. I can tolerate Carly because Laura is truly talented, albeit overbearing.
Granted, that is my problem. LOL.
General Hospital is an Orwellian Society. Bunch of hypocrites to boot. Do as I say and not as I do mindset.

Hi Celia Nice hearing from you after so long. Uh oh! Guess you thought the old lady needed a time out huh? Well, sorry we don’t see eye to eye, but I have lived a long life and have learned that there are very few things that can be painted as just black or white. Some people can be shown in the most favorable light, but are actually horrible human beings. Of course I don’t condone murder, but it doesn’t mean they haven’t done some good deeds or acts of kindness in their lives. I also know we can’t see… Read more »

Hello, Miss V—-nah , didn’t think that, sweet lady. I actually thought you were still having problems getting through. Agreed….good people do make mistakes ( we’re human—not perfect) but, murder is not a mistake. …unless it’s self defence or protecting another————–Especially when such a crime is someone’s livelihood. Case in point–Sonny, Julian, Jason etc. without repenting. Tell you a story— my husband’s family’s good friend’s daughter ( are you confused yet?) was arrested in one of Boston’s many Universities. She’s a good girl but did a bad thing. She had a fight with her boyfriend and threw a glass at… Read more »

This week was as good as I hoped. I thought Katelyn MacMullen really delivered. The scenes between William DeVry and Maura West were unexpected and of course really good. When Lucas hands Wiley to Michael and both actors look crushed, it really hit the right note. My only complaint with this storyline is making the gay asian character the bad guy. Such an obvious and stereotypical trope to perpetuate – the one-dimensional, self-absorbed gay bad guy. Very 1980s. BTW, has anyone else noticed that soaps are in the process of writing off the handful of queer characters they had, after… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Courtesy/ABC

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

Courtesy/ABC

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
