GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco and The Baker Brothers!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, Franco (Roger Howarth) comes face-to-face with the second Baker brother (He has the first one caged up, or so he thinks!).

Meanwhile, viewers get to see more of Michael Rodrick (Seth) who just entered the canvas as Seth.   It all goes down at GH when Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) introduces Franco to Seth, who is looking for his missing brother, Tom (Don Harvey).  It’s clear that Seth does not trust Franco. Suddenly, Elizabeth is called for a code blue, which turns out to be her sister, Hayden (Rebecca Budig), who life hangs in the balance! While Liz is gone, Seth tells Franco he is going to go to the police if he finds out Franco harmed his brother. Franco makes himself not look like the guilty party for Tom going MIA, by telling Seth that his brother is probably out there somewhere causing trouble.  That is something that Seth cannot refute is a possibility given his brother’s criminal past.

Courtesy/ABC

Back at Franco’s art studio, a caged and enraged Tom is able to free himself from the cage and remove his shock collar, but finds that the front door to the studio is locked from the outside! His rage and frustration mounting, he has to figure a way to get out of this – in what is essentially- kidnapping by Franco.

After Hayden is stabilized, Liz comes back to the nurses station and overhears Franco telling Seth about how he was once a bad guy, but he has changed.  He tells Seth he wants to, and is trying to b,e a better person for Liz.  He promises Seth that he wouldn’t risk doing something to Tom which in turn means he could lose Liz . Seth exits and Liz gives Franco a big hug and a few steamy kisses are exchanged.  She tells Franco she overheard what he said and appreciated it, and from her experience a few moments ago where she almost lost her sister, Hayden, she realizes life is too short.

Later, after his run-in and chat with Seth, Franco returns to his studio with a different perspective, such that he will let Tom go free.  When he sees Tom apparently sleeping in his cage, he tells the ex-convict he is going to let him go.  But Franco is had!  When Tom gets out of the cage and Franco’s back is turned away from him, Tom chloroforms Franco.

The questions left for the viewing audience are among many:  Where is this story going?  Has this story somehow redeemed Franco for his past misdeeds?  Will Liz flip when she finds out Franco lied and had been holding Tom captive in a cage?  Will Seth Baker remain in Port Charles for awhile? Will Franco now go MIA, just as he and Liz were getting closer? Share your thoughts on this story in the comment section below.

LOL.. Ok
How did Tom get hold of chloroform????????
It’s not a household item.

I had no doubt that Finn would save Haden in the nick of time, and himself.

Seth and Franco will play each other for awhile and Franco will prevail.
Franco is da`man..

Franco was redeemed when his crazy was cut out however he will always be good and bad and on the fence.

Franco and Liz will eventually break-up (they all do) and then get back together again most likely by a tragedy.

Good catch, SuzieQ. LOL. How did Tom get his hands ob chlorophorm? Maybe he carries a supply around…one never knows when it could be handy. Well, all I can say is that, albeit I have no clue what’s going on in Tom’s head…..what his intention was once in town; but, Franco deserved what he got. In my estimation, there’s no way Franco is sane. Normal people do not act that way. And, taking the law into his own hands is a no-no. I do not eish him on Liz, no matter how much he loves her. He is so mercurial,… Read more »

hey CC.. I thought it was original of Franco to treat Tom as a dog and train him to stay away from Liz.. Franco did not beat him, set his hair on fire or hold a gun on him, the dog shock collar aha good one! (if a dog can take it so can Tom.. I don’t watch DOOL but a friend does and she told me Franco is more mellow than most the guys in DOOL ..

Oh, I gey it, su. You like the bad boys…so do I, LOL….. But, not when said bad boy’s actions become criminal. No, Franco did not beat Tom, did not set his hair on fire. What Franco did is still criminal….kidnapping and holding someone ‘hostage’, imprisoned in a cage like a dog, no matter how rabid, lol, proves Franco has a screw loose. Maybe this is what true love does to Franco? What it means to him? Poor guy, he has probably never experienced that particular surge of feelings. He doesn’t know what to do with it. I realize he… Read more »

Yep! Scenes of the torture in the cage were unwatchable.

Love between Franco and Liz makes no sense unless Franco redeems himself, renouncing evil for good, and the exact opposite is happening. And now Liz seeks advice from Heather.

I don’t like it either, and it’s a shame that it involves three very talented actors.
It seems to me that there will be no positive outcome for this very dark story line, and hence, no viewer satisfaction.
It’s frustrating that we are fast forwarding through these scenes because as I said before, all three actors are extremely talented.

I was just going to post the same thing, Rose. Where do they get this stuff? It isn’t even interesting.
The same goes for the pawn shop guy, the Chinese mob ( is it Brad’s family?), Julian, Sonny and Jason. Is it a guy thing?…,,,because I am almost positive none of we female viewers are ‘enthralled’ by the lack of substance to these particular stories.

Rose
Guest

Celia…I’ve been thinking it’s could be Brad’s family since I saw the red shirt a few weeks ago. It goes back to the Brad/Rosalie “marriage.” I don’t remember all the details except Brad did talk about his West coast, mob family, that they were dangerous, and perhaps wanted to expand to the East coast…which means topple Sonny. Could mean they enlisted Julian to do the job in return for some sort of place in the mob organization. We’ll see. These writers can be tricky.

@CeeCee….I completely agree with you on all of it.
The entire Tom/Franco storyline is vile & disturbing.
Regarding the other storylines they R sad barely
watchable… Beyond Bored w/ Sam & Jason, Sonny

death on this soap & numerous others… Finn and his
lab rat self, let finally find a cure for him and Hayden &
let’s move on already. That’s the problem (among so many
others) every story drags on for far tooooooo long…..

GH writers need to get some paint remover and brush Freak-o off the GH canvas but since F.V. has his own pet zoo which includes Roger Howarth I doubt it will happen but it sure has brought ratings down.A disgusting story line with disgusting characters

Speaking of paint remover. I was thinking it might be some kind of solution used in the arts, painting, etc. that Barker used to knock out Franco. Do not like the turn or implications this SL is headed to.

LOL! Pet zoo. Yeah it’s all about Roger and Frank’s obsession with him. Add Easton to the zoo as well, two guys from OLTL that Frank can’t live without but a lot of GH fans sure could. And now the talk of Todd possibly coming back. Amazing how little GH matters and how much a mediocre (at best) actor does matter to Frank.

I am loving this storyline! Roger Howarth & Don Harvey are fabulous as foils to each other and Franco/Liz remind me of classic soap couples with their slow and intricate build! The chemistry of the actors makes this over the top story work! Can’t wait for the fall out and to see Friz overcome the obstacles… both external and internal!

The pairing of Franco/Elizabeth is something I’d never dreamed of but they fit so perfectly. Two broken people who healed thru love. GH has given them a year long classic slow build taking them from frenemies to reluctant friends to supportive friends to blossoming romance. Becky & Roger have off the charts chemistry be it comedy, banter, tender yearning or romance. Franco’s already redeemed himself IMO. His past crimes were caused by a tumor that led to psychosis. This past year he’s devoted himself to helping her damaged son, lead a more productive life & moved heaven & Earth to… Read more »

I’m enjoying the story. I don’t know where this redemption idea came from but that’s not what’s playing on screen. Franco has a man locked in a cage! (before he turned the tables on him) He made a mistake, obviously, but that doesn’t take away from the wonderful job Jean and Shelley have done developing and humanizing this character. And it certainly didn’t begin with this story-line.

Do I beleive Tom will die, let’s hope if he does he really is but while Franco will be the prime suspect I would love to see a twist. Franco the only one with a rock solid alibi and not the routine “he did it” and then clear him. A true whodunnit where it could be anyone but the prime suspect! Do I believe he’s been redeemed?

I agree, Susan. I love Franco and how passionately, albeit off the rails/out of the norm, he defends those he loves. He hunted down Heather when she kidnapped Carly, buried her and almost died at her hand. He then followed that up by taking some hallucinogenic to have himself committed with Nina…and now this. Lol…his heart’s in the right place…and one would think in a town in a town of criminals with past alien visitors (Casey), people walking around in each other’s face (masks), ice princeses, people back from the dead…that Franco wouldn’t’ be such a pariah!

I’m sure Liz will be angry with Franco for lying to her but he did it to protect her. People are forgetting that Tom came to Franco’s studio to attack Kiki and he was trying to lure Nelle as well. For me, Franco has already been redeemed. He had a tumour and did awful things! Many residents in Port Charles have done horrible things and they have no tumour nor do they seek redemption. I believe Franco has changed, old Franco was cold, calm and calculating. He didn’t care about others feelings and he never tried to protect anyone. If… Read more »

While I think there might be a few bumps for Franco and Elizabeth, I think they will overcome this. Franco might not have gone about it in the right way, but his intentions were to protect the woman he is in love with and during his conversation with Seth you could visibly see him come that realization. It may not have been the story most people wanted with Tom Baker coming back, but I will say this, Roger Howarth, Rebecca Herbst and Don Harvey have been outstanding.

I am hoping that #Friz will confront this next obstacle to gather. I expect Liz to be upset at first about the Tom in a cage thing but know it was his way of protecting her and have his back the way he has always had hers. I don’t expect one story to mean instant redemption for some viewers, for me its about the journey which he start long before this. I would like to see more of Liz POV though, after all she too is on her own journey. Redefining herself, dealing with her rapist release and embracing a… Read more »

Meghan

What I find really unfortunate about this story is that they chose to take a signature storyline from Elizabeth’s past and turn it into a story about Franco. Tom Baker’s release from jail should have been focused on Elizabeth dealing with her rape years later as the adult woman that she is. It shouldn’t be a storyline focused on Franco wrestling with his demons. Rebecca Herbst deserves better than this. No doubt that Roger Howarth is acting his butt off in this story but it shouldn’t be about Franco at all.

Amen, Meghan. Elizabeth’s story has been diluted….blown to smithereens. Trying to protect Liz? Only a crazy guy protects this way….risking whatever relationship is developing between him and Liz. I had my misgivings about Liz and Franco, but, because I love both so much, I wanted them to overcome whatever difficulty and go on with their life. But, this turn of events sort of stunned me. Why? If TPTB are trying to prove that Liz’s and Franco’s lovevstory is so strong, it could survive anything, is a very obnoxious way of showing it. The writers could have written it another way.… Read more »

Rebecca1

I understand what you’re saying Meghan but I see it another way, as well.Because of Franco’s personal history with violent behavior this was a great opportunity for him to confront himself thru Tom. When you combine the “looking in the mirror” aspect with his love for Liz it was the perfect storm. Since Tom’s currently AWOL, maybe he will go after Liz in retaliation…perhaps she’ll overcome him or outfit him…coming out the victor…reclaiming her power…

Rebecca – I can see what you are saying about Franco and agree it is a vehicle for him to really examine some of the terrible things he did in the past. I am just struggling with seeing what I would consider a “signature” story from Elizabeth’s past used to focus on Franco. Maybe you are right and she will play a larger part as the story moves forward but I have my doubts.

Regardless of the fact that Valentin has custody of Charlotte, all she needs to do is sue him for sole custody…..Valentin stole her egg and fetilized it with his sperm unbeknownst to Lulu.

Correction….Apparitions.
It never crossed my mind that Lulu was Charlotte’s mother. But, Aria guessed right. I always thought that Valentin was the father and Claudette the mother.

As a huge Friz fan I was worried when I heard about this story but truly I have enjoyed it. Roger’s ability to play serious and humor at the same time has made it fun to watch and kept me entertained. I love the soapiness that Liz has finally realized she needs to just jump in with both feet just when we know things are going to come tumbling down a bit. I have faith the writers are committed to building Friz so I can not wait to see how the rest of this plays out.

I am LOVING Franco and Liz’s storyline. Yes, I wish Liz had a stronger POV, but I do get it. The story is really about Franco coming to grips with his past, the hurt & pain he caused, & the lifetime ramifications of said actions. However, I don’t think this is about “redeeming” Franco. I think it’s more about humanizing him & making him more self-aware. “Redeeming” Franco implies, to me, that GH & the writing team somehow touches on his bad deeds then sweeps them under the carpet, never to be heard about again.

I love Franco. I dont think this story was about redemption and I dont want or need him redeemed. It was to show Franco who he was vs who he wants to be.

Watching a character truly struggle with who he was with who he wants to be is way more interesting and enjoyable then everyone forgiving and forgetting.

I love this story and that we could see all the different emotions and demons that Franco was experiencing with Tom back in Port Charles.

I am actually offended that GH took this seminal event in Liz’s life and made it about Franco. Liz has had ZERO POV, and shared as many scenes with HER rapist as Kiki & Alexis have. For me it’s not about whether I like Friz as a couple (I don’t) but it’s about the blatant disregard that this GH regime has for the value of the show’s history and its veteran characters. Liz fans have literally been begging for this story to be told, so that Liz could regain the confidence & strength that the character once had. So that… Read more »

I have no use for the Baker Family whatsoever, the story doesn’t do anything for me, the actors don’t do anything for me. People complain about the size of the GH cast all the time and unnecessary characters being added to the show. The Baker Family is the definition of unnecessary characters. I do like Franco returning to his evil roots, however. That’s definitely more interesting than “art therapist family man” Franco. At least it’s giving Roger Howarth something fun to play. One thing I am really loving lately is the Valentin/Nina pairing. James Patrick Stuart has been tremendous in… Read more »

ROGER IS A FABULOUS ACTOR……THEY NEED TO CLEAN HIM UP AND GIVE HIM A STORY THAT HE DESERVES…HE DESERVES MIUCH BETTER THAN THIS MESS.

Hayden/Finn/Tracy, Laura/Kevin, and Anna/Emma were the only good parts of the episode…not sure why none of that was addressed in the recap above…but the worst character, most ridiculous pairing, and this horrible story is the sole focus.

Franco needs to be killed off and this Friz fiasco ended as soon as possible.

I’d watch Michael Rodrick change light bulbs, sweep floors, grocery shop, whatever! GH please give us more of this eye candy!! The caged animals storyline is unseemly and in very poor taste. Enough of this nonsense! Flush this story…flush Franco…flush Liz & Franco…keep Liz. This stuff is painful to watch. Move Anna and Valentin front and center! This story is intriguing to me and features the show’s best actress and one intoxicating man in James Patrick Stuart. He is a joy to watch. His eyes alone could get me in really deep trouble. Nina, girlfriend, you need to get on… Read more »

I know it’s not few and far between… I love when we can all celebrate characters and this show with equal aplomb it’s a blast… I can’t help it… it’s Seth / Valentin / and yes, I forget hes still on… / Lucas and Brad these men amp this show… i’m certain of it. which… I will further attest and continually laud : Nicholas / Dr. Joe / Morgan / Paul these characters set the show afire who needs : Sonny / Jason / Finn /Michael… they do not resonate any where near PS: I have to believe that Michelle… Read more »

I don’t think Tom get hold of chloroform. But it was definitely something in the artist studio that would knock out Franco if inhaled.

I hope that caged story ends with Franco being redeemed soon. I’m not thrilled by it. However, it was different than I was expecting. Not a fan of Tom’s so he can go anywhere out of PC anytime pronto.

There are too many characters on GH and we all want our old favorites back but Frankie boy tends to take care of his pets. BUT, I will give him credit, he brought on the Baker Brothers which are really good actors and the guy in the Pawn shop can act, as well. THAT is a plus!

Thank goodness for fast forwarding. I cannot stand this storyline. I liked Franco so much better with Nina. He was funny & more vulnerable or something. I do not watch this part of the show at all.

I love Franco and Liz together. Their build has been slow and the writers are tacking all their issues head on. I loved Franco’s realization while speaking with Seth. It was a long scene of point of view and that’s rare for this show these days. The dream sequence was pretty great and the performances excellent.

This storyline is disgusting and totally unreal and yes, I know it’s a soap opera. I hope the character of Franco is given his “walking papers” and is no more. Elizabeth needs a good storyline . There is so much that could be written for her character.

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.

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.”
