GENERAL HOSPITAL: Finn Tells Hayden He's Dying!

Courtesy/GH

Courtesy/GH

It looks like some clarity, but with still many unanswered questions, has come to GH audiences on just what is going on with Dr. Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton).

On Tuesday’s episode, Finn admits to Hayden (Rebecca Budig) that he is dying!  At first, she questions him about it, and he comes forth with: “I was traveling, and I contracted a rare disease.  You don’t know the name of it, and there’s no cure.  But I discovered a way to moderate the progress of the illness.”

When Hayden questions Finn if that is what is going on with the syringe and the vial of unknown medication, he admits to her that it’s a drug protocal that is keeping him stable, but it’s becoming less and less effective, and at some point, it just won’t work at all.   He also clarifies that it is not a contagious disease that he suffers from.

Hayden has gone to the GH locker room to retrieve Finn’s research notebook for him.  Later, he tells her he wants to do good work and help people.  Hayden seemingly feels badly for Finn, because her father had bankrupted the medical foundation Finn was working on to do just that.

However, Hayden pries even further and tries to get Finn to admit that his wife also died as of a result of this same illness. Finn shoots her a look, and does not confirm. or deny it.

So, what do you think of the revelation that Finn is dying? Do you think Hayden and Finn will become a romantic duo in the very near future? What do you think happened to Finn’s late wife? Share your theories in the comment section below.

Umm I do! I actually luke the chemistry here and im liking where this is headed… Now if only the real Nicholas could come back ASAP, things can get gooood

I care too. I love Michael Easton and I think he’s doing a great job with this quirky character. I don’t see McBain or Silas; he’s different enough that I’m able to suspend my disbelief. I hope ME is staying for the long haul so once he’s cured or stable I’d like to see his character and interactions broadened.

Celia

Well, it was one of two things, as I said from the first time we saw Finn shoot up. Either he is using himself as a ‘test’ subject for a developing drug; or he has contracted a disease on one of his medical travels.
Now, we know how his wife died. I am hoping the writers will derail this train wreck and have Finn live.
I , also, want the writers to indulge and invest in a love story between Finn and Hayden.

Woulnd it be grand if his ” dead wife” is actually Brenda Barret?

Celia

I had to look Brenda Barret and her GH story up, Ghlover, LOL.
After familiarizing myself with the character and her life in Port Charles, I almost chocked…LOL. Lo and Behold!!
I should have known! Another of Sonny’s wives. Caramba!!
Yeah, I guess Brenda emerging as Finn’s supposedly dead wife would be a shocker.

I figured he was dying and it gives Easton an out for his limited appearance. IF they decide to keep Finn, he will magically find a cure. [Maybe injecting the sweat of a Koala bear in him?] But anyway, I enjoy this character and he and Hayden seem to gel.

dmr

I’m just not a fan of Hayden-seems like she is being written into this storyline “just because” and probably because the actress is being paid a lot for the job. I think it would have made more sense for Finn to tell Carly, since they have sort of developed a friendship. I can somewhat understand why he didn’t tell the hospital or Monica, his medical practices probably would have been called into question since he’s ill and performing surgery. I’m just not overly invested in this storyline.

YOU GOT THAT SOOOO RIGHT ANNA I TOO CANNOT STAND HAYDEN BARNES SHE IS MY LEAST FAVORITE ACTRESS CHARACTER ON GH.

AND MELISSA WILL BE PLAYING HER!

Ces

Calling ces yes ah no repeat what l say Hamilton Finn is by far is his favorite character he may have aids or diabetes but the awareness of what Hamilton Finn has can go to two causes as l said on the second line, are you reading as well as the magic of writing l can create Danny as Hamilton son, a single dad how many single dads are there in the world today. make quite enjoyable wouldn’t u yhink

@Ghlover. Lol, Gh. NuKiki grew on me; but, Lulu is a door-knob. I do not agree with the writers’s turnabout. Lulu should have stuck to her guns and gone through with the divorce. Then again, perhaps it is I who is too unforgiving. Do not cheat or find yourself hanging from the end of my wrath, holding for dear life. What would make the world rosy and wearing a smily face is for Kiki to kick Morgan out of her heart and her orbit. Once a cheater always a cheater. He makes me want to grit my teeth.

I’m glad you are a new fan! Sadly, there aren’t too many of you. The show is down 276 thousand from last week and 318 thousand viewers from a year ago. I wish there were more of you, but new characters with no ties to longevity and history drive viewers away. Sorry.

I sure hope Finn and Hayden get together!!! I just LOVE Michael Easton and Rebecca Budig, and they are both powerhouse vets!

Ideally, I’d love for Finn’s wife to still be alive, and of course, she’ll come to PC to find him. He’d be getting romantically closer to Hayden, and miraculously, his wife shows up — portrayed by RENEE ELISE GOLDSBERRY!!! Wouldn’t that be the best???!!!

What a dream it would be to have Michael Easton and Renee Elise Goldsberry back on the same soap! Those two create nothing but MAGIC together on screen!

Kristina Anderson

Carolyn

Michael would jump at the chance to work with Renee again. I’d settle for a temporary appearance, anything, just to see them on screen together again. Michael’s recent post on his Facebook page says it all, Renee was always his choice.

Rebecca1

Rebecca1

Lol. I think Renee’s soap days are over. She is having, as I’m sure you know, phenomenal success in Hamilton and will probably soar even higher from there.

Carolyn
Guest
Carolyn

I totally agree with you , she has moved past contracted roles in a daytime soap. I’ve read Hamilton may be made into a movie version. Renee has really on her to the stars. However, I can still hold out hope that she would consider doing a short term guest appearance on GH.

Marianne

Finn is an interesting character and I am looking forward to his story. In saying that it does look like there may be a Finn and Hayden pairing along the way. Personally, I hope it’s short lived because I would love to see Michael paired with Melissa Archer again. He needs his fiery redhead and I’m not talking about Hayden!

The story is intriguing. Not a fan of the Hayden/Rachel character. Yes, Finn’s interaction with her and their banter is ok but darn I am hoping Melissa Archer joins GH and is reunited with Michael. Sizzling chemistry always!

Just not so longing to see her paired with him again on GH like so many others. I’m more of a Rebecca girl so I’m okay with Hayden with Finn. They seem to click. One thing I haven’t liked at all about the Finn storyline is the visual ” shooting up” scenes. For anyone following the news there an epidemic of this going on right now right… Read more »

How could I forget the memorable Bette Davis. Oh, yes!!!! I have been a fan of Hayden since her AMC days. And, speaking of stars, I thank them everyday, Cameron Mathison is not the one playing the role of Finn. HaHa. I, also, agree that the “shooting up” is very disturbing. Kids are very inquisitive, impressionable and curious by nature. I know that when there is no school,… Read more »

Opinions vary, I never saw chemistry between ME and MA, I found them boring and painful to watch. Not everyone who watched OLTL liked (Jolie) John and Natalie. I disliked them so much I found myself not watching the days they were on. GH needs to bring on someone who brings heat to the screen, someone who brings out the best in Michael, someone like Renee Elise Goldsberry. I hope MA never comes to GH.

Stacey

Stacey

We certainly can agree to disagree. I hope Melissa does come to GH. Michael and Melissa are awesome together.

Matt

Ugh to Hayden.! If they do go the route of a pairing I hope it’s short and we get Melissa Archer brought on board. She and Michael have unfinished business. Maybe as his beloved wife or a new doc or even Sarah Webber. Bring Melissa onboard please:))))))

Celia
Guest
Celia

Sounds really good, Matt. I would love to have Melissa and Michael together. The second time around may not meet our own expectations…..there is always that risk….different storylines….different life.
As I said, Rebecca is one compelling, got-you-in-my-grip kind of actress. Believe me, when she stormed into Pine Valley….not much to like , at first. But, boy; did she reel me in!!!!! Of course, that is my take; my feeling…..but, I cannot believe I am the only one who admires this outstanding protagonist.

Rose

Maybe writers have mixed and matched the right characters with each other, at least for me. I like Finn and Hayden…Nicolas and Ava together. But not Franco and Nina. He’s way better with Nina, and vice versa.

The other fun thing about the Nik /Ava storyline, while I still don’t see a GH connection, it still reminds me of Felicia and Frisco’s adventure to reclaim her Aztec heirloom. Except now it’s at “Downton Abbey.” So I’ll enjoy it for what it is.

Finn may be dying but somehow they’ll find a cure. The story is great and I am loving his relationship, whatever it may be, with Hayden.

Here’s to Finn & Hayden and more of the story. MUCH MORE!

ME could have been cast as Dr. Steven Lars Webber prison parolee who picked up a drug habit that he’s trying to shake and been connected to Elizabeth, Audrey, Cam, Jake, Aiden, and the rest of the Hardy/Webber family. Bree Williamson could have come on as Dr. Sarah Webber with her and Lucky’s son from their affair back in 2002.

I will never understand why it is fans come come up with connections to the show’s 53 year history and the writers build newbies that we FF every single time!

Excellent points! Still, I’m enjoying the show regardless. But the connections — that would only have made it better.

MissySnow
Guest
MissySnow

How much better would the show be if RoHo, ME, Matt Cohen, Bree Williamson, etc… were playing beloved legacy characters? The 3 OLTL actors could have been Sarah and Steven Lars Webber and Tom Hardy and then we could see Tommy Hardy Jr. medical intern and Sarah’s son with Lucky as a petulant teen working as a candy striper at the hospital!

Justin
Guest
Justin

Oh, that would be a fantastic storyline, and I too thought that ME could’ve been Steven Lars Webber. And an excellent question, why do we fans have to come up with ties to the history.

MissySnow
Guest
MissySnow

I think it is way TOO easy for the show to create new characters where they can come up with any old backstory, instead of doing their homework and researching beloved characters that we desperately need for the next generation of Hardy/Webber, Q’s, Baldwin’s, Ward’s, etc…

Look at Valerie a Spencer who barely interacts with Lucas, Carly, Michael, Morgan, Josselyn, Aiden, etc! Come, on! Why isn’t Valerie a nurse at GH after taking care of her dead mother for years and having her interact with Elizabeth, :Piph, Felix, Lucas (her cousin!), etc.

Celia

It is still possible, Mary. Perhaps Finn is the evil Cassadine Dr. O inferred as Nathan’s father.
What if Finn, knowing his core-evil-essence wants to change? What if he is injecting himself with a “Do-good” drug? Far-fetched fantasy, that. LOL.
Yet, we were dragged to the torture chamber in Fluke’s dungeon and put on the stretch-rack….not to mention the fantastical life of Faison and his colorful array of masks.
Wouldn’t be so much of a stretch—mo pun.

Really this is the best they can do? A mysterious disease that do one has heard of contracted on his many travels– give me a break. Honestly if they brought back ME only to kill him off again that would be a real waste and slap in the face to all his fans. If this disease is just a way to explain his shooting up, his being a drug addict would have been a better and more compelling story. If they aren’t going to kill him off, then obviously he will be cured– no doubt by Super Priest Doctor Griffith,… Read more »

It does sound unreal, Mary SF. But, if Finn travelled far and wide to godforsaken, indigenous lands where fetid water is drunk, or disease infested food is eaten, is VERY possible to develop an incurable, viral disease. I would think the natives developed an immunity. I mentioned this instantly….as soon as Finn shot up. As a missionary and from the western world, his body and constitution were not robust, or used to that atmosphere, if you will. So, he fell prey. If that is the case, as a doctor he should have armed himself with all kinds of preventative drugs…against… Read more »

Well if they were going down that route, they could at least pick a real disease- do some research, of what kind of diseases are out there that the good doctor had a chance to get. But a mysterious disease, that doesn’t really exist, just to fake the drama of his dying, only to “cured” later– is just one step above Ron C way out there stories with vampires and the like— I have no issue with him being sick or catching it on some travels of his, it is this whole unwillingness to give the disease a name– at… Read more »

Prospect Park lawsuit will make it hard for MA to be paired with Easton just the hint of putting them together will make them say GH is trying to capitalize off of John and Natalie. I am not just saying this because I never liked the Jolie pairing. Prospect park has and will make it hard for GH to use actors from OLTL or AMC until that lawsuit is resolved . This also goes for Renee Elise Goldsbery who played Evangeline (I am a Jovan fan ) they would have the same issue with her if paired with Easton. Besides… Read more »

I’m not really sure about your theory. Even after they couldn’t use the OLTL characters anymore, GH still had RoHo and KA (now as Franco and Kiki) routinely interacting. It made absolutely ZERO sense why Kiki would still be interacting with Franco after it was revealed that Silas was her dad, but they did so because everyone loved Starr and Todd. PP owns the characters, not the actors portraying the characters. Honestly, if Valentini and The Gang wanted to bring on Renee Elise Goldsberry, they’d fight like hell to get her. They at least owe her that much after they… Read more »

I’d take Renee and Michael together for a short term storyline. Renee is contracted to do Hamilton thru July, I don’t know if her contract has been extended. I have no doubt that Renee would be Michael’s first choice.

Michael was never the same after they separated John from Evangeline. I do believe Renee was his true acting partner, and acting marriage made in heaven. It’s clear he thinks the world of her and admires her talent and accomplishments all one has to do is read his facebook page.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
