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?

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 for Micheal….ok, kidding-lol

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!!!

Celia

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.

we need those stories to come to an end…im not getting any younger-lol

Celia

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?

as long as it isnt Peter…

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.

I agree with the last part of your comment.

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 for me to get a story that would play out in the length of time it used to take to tell a story like this has been a blessing for me. I know this week is going to be the best!!!

Rodd

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.

Kay
Kay

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
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
Celia

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
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 didn’t care about .

Celia
Celia

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. Carly is doing the stirring. LOL

Celia
Celia

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.

Satan

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
Boop

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.

Boop
Boop

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.

Boop
Boop

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 and other gangster movies in which one mobster family is as powerful as the other;however , that doesn’t stop the other families from going after them. General Hospital doesn’t do that ; everyone is scare of Sonny and his henchman ,Jason.
Before ,I end , I hope that Nelle is allowed to fight for her child; this show allows the mob to take parental rights from the mother. Plus , Michael should realize how A.J. felt when Carly and Sonny kept him from A.J.
I hope that G.H. writers try to make all of the fans happy and not just some! If not, I’m moving on!

Satan

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 brought Taggart back after all these years. But I have a feeling you’re gonna hate it when he ends up working with Sonny & Jason to stop Cyrus the Virus. It’s inevitable.

Boop
Boop

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.

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 a big mouth pain in the butt, but, she is Michael’s mom, making her Wiley’s grandma. Myself, being one, I would have had my hands around that twerp Brad’s neck for sure, and they would be hauling me off in cuffs, instead of him. Was she supposed to sit there and shut up during all this? Bad enough old Bobbie didn’t say enough for what Brad did to Lucas. I would have been in his face for sure! Sorry for ranting so much, but the things I read that people are so upset with just drives me nuts. It’s easier to stop watching something that makes you crazy. I stopped watching B&B a while back because it upset me so much.

Boop
Boop

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 to write the shows in a one – sided manner; I like for my favorites to shine, sometimes.

Celia
Celia

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 everyone the same. I know how much you love Ava. Well, I can’t stand her, never could and not because she is a murderess. You have said once that Avery would be better off with her mother. OMG, thankfully she was spared from the kind of love she gave Kiki. I too can’t stand Carly, her big mouth and how she thinks everything is about her, case in point, all the stuff Nelle has been doing was” to get back at HER.”I do like Jason, but not his bowing down to Carly and his profession. I am also sick of him and Sam. I also like Franco, as one of the few who has accepted the brain tumor excuse. I know he’s done horrible things in the past but they have turned him into a new character, which to me is just that. Well, I know how precious your time is and I’ve railed on enough. Hope all is well with you.

Celia

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 him which caused him to get stitches on his cheek. That is the perfect example of a good person losing his/her head—-temporarily, in a moment of anger. I would not do it—-I have never been so angry to do that—not within my personality, as I am sure neither is it in yours or many others.
Committing murder; knowingly walking out the door with that intention does not fit, ” a good person doing a bad thing”.
You’re right!! I’ve never liked Sonny, Jason or Peter—the characters. Yet, I love Ava and I like Franco also—- to a certain point I like Nelle. I can’t explain it. It’s a mystery—however, Nelle DOES deserve to pay. Why do Sonny and Jason ( loved Burton as Dylan on Y&R) continuously get away with murder? The cliche’ is personified in their case.
Who to blame? I understand it’s a soap, but this storyline has a never-ending plot — –different era; some different characters—no end….Same story over and over—stale.
Furthermore, Sonny is the worst mafioso. Cosa nostra intrigue is somewhat passe’.
Then, there’s Sam with that quivering voice—sotto-voce is not indicative to a good, audience-capturing performance. And, of course her childish behavior chasing Jason. It seems that she constantly unloads her kids here, there and everywhere. I try not to grind my teeth, Miss V. LOL.
I must say, I am so glad to chat with you again…..it’s been too long.
Stay well, ❤️

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 it took decades to get here? That’s shameful in 2020. Pandering to fans of the orange menace, I guess.

General Hospital

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?

So, were you upset that Alexis drank? Do you like Britt and Julian hooking-up? Will Carly get Nelle to sign the consent forms  for Wiley’s surgery? And, are you intrigued by a redux of a Liz and Nikolas romance? Comment below.
