GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Charms Liz, Sam Faints, Jax & Carly Don't See Eye To Eye!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of GH, Franco (Roger Howarth) takes Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) to his ominous art studio.  He tells Liz for him the art studio is a safe and private place away from the noise of the world.

Franco goes on to tell Liz he has been painting a lot lately, and that he was inspired to paint a portrait of her!  Liz is so impressed by Franco’s work.  She is touched and intrigued by him.  As the two of them are getting to know each other and their mutual attraction to each other is evident,  Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) and Valerie (Brytni Sarpy) are looking for Franco, as all clues point to that Franco could indeed be the hospital patient serial killer.  When they get wind that Liz is with Franco at his art studio, they show up at the door and begin the process of putting a damper on Franco and Liz’s burgeoning date.

Back on Cassadine Island, we learn that Jason (Billy Miller) landed the plane but it then exploded, and so far he is so nowhere to be found.  Sam (Kelly Monaco) wants to keep looking, while Ava (Maura Weat) wants the group to find their way off the island as soon as possible.

She tells Sam she must face the reality that Jason may have perished.  Sam fires back at Ava that is something she just will not accept.  Next thing you know as she is determined to go look for Jason herself, Sam passes out in Dante’s (Dominic Zamprogna) arms.

Jax  (Ingo Rademacher) arrives in Port Charles and chats it up with Finn (Michael Easton).  Carly (Laura Wright) arrives upon the scene and is stunned to see her ex back in town.  When the two of them have a moment to talk about the solving of the mystery of Josslyn’s kidney donor, it is clear Jax is trying to desuade Carly from her search.  She swears to Jax that she’s respecting Josslyn’s wishes and not pursuing it any further, but Jax knows Carly.   He can tell she is lying through her teeth.

So, what did you think of Franco and Liz’s art studio date? Why do you think Sam is passing out?  Will Jax and Carly come together to solve the Josslyn kidney donor mystery?  Will Jason just reappear A. O.K?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Sam is either pregnant or she has come down with a foreign mystery illness. If it’s the latter: If she ever makes it back to Port Charles, Dr. Finn will properly diagnose her and treat her.

She’s probably pregnant. Nina will end up with that kid somehow.

pregnant? she barely takes care of the one she’s got, why give her another one? i prefer if she came down w/ some foreign virus that way she would have to be isolated from everyone.

I’m with you, Marie….same old, same old. No matter how hard TPTB try to make this character interesting; she fails big time with me. No personality. Are we to feel empathy? Funny how women pass out on the onset of pregnancy. How often does this happen? I have never fainted, pregnant or otherwise. And, Jason? Well, Marie….I doubt any of us believed he was dead. The guy has nine lives, so we all knew he’d turn up sooner or later. Who cares? Been there done that….super hero piloted an airplane (wonder of all wonders), saved everyone on board and then… Read more »

Very good Celia- we all knew that Jason was going to be alive and the hero once again ( prop, prop). He flies a plane – never had a lesson, but remembers how. I was actually waiting for Jason to arrive with them carrying groceries from a store and having a hotel room rented for them to all stay in till rescued.
According to the way things are written lately.

@Shay.
Hey, Shaybelle. LOL. I get it, believe me, I get it!!!!! Thing is I have come to love Kelly Monaco. She’s sweet and down to earth. And, as I have said, TPTB need to step-up both Sam and Michelle.
It’s healthy to disagree as long as we do not throw punches, mia bella.
By the by? I have a feeling Nik will show up at Ava’s. ….never know; he may already be hiding in her apartment/condo. LOL….XXOO.

When was the last time those people ate or drank something? Maybe Sam just is the weakest link.

Roger and Becky have great chemistry. Franco and Liz though, are very creepy given their history.

Yesterday they had all the arrows pointing at Jax as the culprit. I am just very afraid to ask how that all ties in with Jake’s kidnapping though.

We do think alike, Angel. I said the same thing. Jax is hiding an essential, if not the most important piece to this ‘kidney’ puzzle issue. He knows more than he’s letting on.

That’s what I’m thinkin, but GH writers don’t like it when the fans figure out their oh so predictable plot lines. We knew the older gray-haired doctor was the killer, but we ALL figured that out, so they kill him and extend the stupid sl because they’re offended that we aren’t as dumb as they think.

I had to wonder if Amy is the killer but also Josslyn’s donor. The way the writers are on soaps these days, Amy could get busted for playing God with human lives but at the same time, get off the hook without any punishment because of her good deed saving a little girl’s life. Hey, weirder things have happened on our stories!!!

Cheap sets continue, Franco’s Cave was a joke! Remember when James Franco was on, his studio was big and freakie! How about JorDUMB bitching at Amy about her peeking into the police record that she instructed Amy to deliver only! First of all, why give an official police report to a civilian? Secondly, its AMY!

I’m actually really liking Valentin, and am intrigued to see what his plan is! Since he and Nina slept together on Tuesday’s episode, I’m curious as to how she fits into it. Plus, it gives Nina a storyline (which she badly needs) and the two have great chemistry together.

I never gave Andre a second thought, my Timmmy. But, perhaps this is the idea….steer culpability away from Andre. Good call, my guy…..never liked shifty Andre, anyway. I also agree that Valentin is a bust. I am so disappointed. But, I must admit this is my own fault. I put too much emphasis on how ‘evil’ or supremely ‘fantastico’ a new character should be like in behavior, looks etc. Valentin has not met my expectations. And, the fact that Nina fell into bed with him( as sweaty and fraught with heavy breathing ad it may have been), I wanted La… Read more »

Never liked Andre either. JELLY stated in an interview that the killer would be someone you wouldnt expect. I wouldnt expect him. I think the biggest problem with Valentin is Helena said he is the worst of the bunch! Well, so far, what has he done? He shot Nick. Well, we know he is alive. He shot Kevin. Well, he and Laura are falling for each other so Kevin will not die. AND, to top it off, he got to tap a super HOT cougar! I’m not afraid of him, I’m envious!

@CeeCee….I definitely could buy Andre as the culprit behind the hospital killings….sometimes psychiatrists are the nuttiest ones in the bunch!!!! Quite frankly, there was always something about him from the fore that created a feeling of personal unease….although I couldn’t put my finger on it! I’m just so glad that Anna wasn’t more engaged with this creepy character….the fact that not-so-intrepid police commissioner Jordan has had the wool pulled over her eyes where this guy is concerned just goes to show how truly inept she is in her job….no intuition whatsoever!

One thing I take serious issue with in the Fiz pairing is that Liz has been horribly raped before and at a very young age, so why do they insist in having Franco trap her in enclosed areas where she seemingly has no way of escape. Rape is not a subject to take lightly and the writers should respect this character’s history with that. He pulls the stop button on the elevator, he takes her to some darkened studio and they make a point of zooming in on him locking, chaining and bolting the door like the Hulk was about… Read more »

Kristin
Guest

I could not agree more. It’s absolutely disgusting to pair a rapist with a rape victim. Actually, it’s disgusting to pair a rapist with anyone, but I digress. The constant harping on his trapping her and the suggestion on the part of the show that he might do something to harm her is gross, distasteful, and honestly irresponsible. It’s 2016; the show writers should know better.

su0000
Guest

thing is;
It is not real..
it is fictional stories.
no one was actually raped
it’s just storytelling. So it really makes no difference was because time has moved on into now stories.

Kristin
Guest
Kristin

Thing is, fiction is a reflection of reality and shapes the way people see the world. It’s irresponsible storytelling. Look at the recent Stanford rape trial to see rape culture in action. Fiction isn’t produced in a vacuum; it’s informed by and informs culture. In 2016, I would have thought we’d moved past pairing rapists with rape victims.

Celia

You bet, Kristin.
You have just reenforced my philosophy. Everything generated on TV, movies, books etc. reflects reality and influences society.
My dear su, we all know it’s a soap….but, if we are to follow a story; a semblance of respect for the viewer is expected.
You are too forgiving, SuzieQ.

I understand your point and would ordinarily agree but I think it was established that : A) he did act out due to his tumor and B) he didn’t rape anyone. He made Sam THINK he raped her but didn’t and if he was telling the truth didn’t tell the actual rapist to hurt Michael…just scare him to get to Jason. Do I remember this correctly? What I don’t remember is if he actually killed people. THATI think he actual did, but again, big leap of faith for Carly, then Nina, Kiki and now Liz to believe he wasn’t in… Read more »

Yes, you have a point- but I see it as showing Elizabeth’s strengths. Even after going through all she did- she survived and is stronger for it. They showed her a little uneasy with the situation–but she didn’t fall apart- she kept her wits about her and stood strong. Elizabeth is not a push – over, she can handle Franco and as a nurse she realizes what Franco was in his past was due to a tumor..and she is giving him the benefit of the doubt now. He has done nothing to her to make her mistrust him or even… Read more »

So, CeeCee, has the role of Roxie has been recast?….Perhaps the showrunners want to take her character in a different direction! (You know, less “service pet,” and more “independent lizard?” Maybe she’ll even leave Finn for Sonny….) Just a thought……

@Shay.
Yes, Shaybelle.

It never occurred to me that Valentin may have been underwhelming in the manhood department…..I just meant that it was time for some other post-menopausal minx to go to town beneath the bedsheets now that an exhausted Alexis is taking a well-deserved break from her overactive libido, and it would seem that Nina has been selected as GH’s designated “back-up” floozy from the over-50 set!

how would you know that GH has become unrecognizable? you claim Laura isn’t a Vet, and the only writer whose work your impress with is Ron C. wish most of us long time vets grew to not respect, you need to understand he’s not coming back, he burn his bridges and although Gh isn’t fully at its best yet, it has a better chance with Roc C gone thats for sure.

Hi aria ..
you have not read correctly..
I have never ever said Genie/Laura was not a vet.
I said– to me she is avnewbie…
I have not watched GH for 45 years and was not watching during the era of Luke and Laura, she is new to me.

And– you are again wrong..
I was greatly impressed with Guza and Ron, both.

Never say never on a RC return 🙂

Agreed, su. Why didn’t Sam take off her spiky-heeled booties? Ava did. I like what you said…” She is little, she is short, own it” . From a ‘little, short’ woman, myself….I appreciate that. I own it, su.
Liz may not have much to do…But, she is so beautiful…..such natural, fresh beauty.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Helps Sonny After Realizing He is Off His Meds

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, will no doubt lead to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) becoming closer, because she was witness, went through, and helped the mobster get help while he was having a manic episode after being off his meds for bipolar disorder.

A disheveled Sonny was outside insulating the kids’ treehouse, didn’t sleep all night, is not eating, and tells Nina – who stayed the night at the Corinthos’ home on the couch – that he feels great.  Then, he tells Nina to stop telling him what to do and to stay out of his way.

Nina panics and calls Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) at the hospital worried that Sonny is off his meds, and she needs medical advice on what to do about it.  Britt tells Nina it’s important to get Sonny to a doctor and not argue with him, but to get him to acknowledge he is having a manic episode.

After the call, Nina asks Sonny not to leave and to explain bipolar disorder to her. He replies it’s like a nightmare but that’s not what’s happening now. Then, he grabs her wrists hard as she stands at the door, as he wants to leave, and Nina tells him, she is hurting her.  Sonny has a moment of realization and insists he does not hurt women. Sonny asks Nina if she is now afraid of him?  She tells him she isn’t. All of a sudden, Sonny feels exhausted.  He sits with Nina and starts to cry and admits he has been off his meds.  She gets him to agree that he needs to see Dr. Sullivan and get a refill.

Sonny and Nina arrive at GH, and Britt shows them to an examining room. Nina wants to make sure he’s OK, before she exits, but Sonny wants to make sure he did not injure her wrists. Nina says she is OK, but you could tell she is emotional from the entire encounter she went through with Sonny.

Maurice Benard took to Twitter within the last 24 hours stating about the storyline which is throwing Sonny’s love life in turmoil and working opposite both Laura Wright (Carly) and Cynthia Watros: “I go where ever it is best for the show and fortunately right now this story is doing well, even better than well, now you may not want to hear that. You already know I love Laura and Cynthia. I keep saying this is between history and change, I think after 20 years change is good.”

So, what did you think of the scenes between Nina and Sonny? Do you agree with us that Nina seeing Sonny having a manic episode will draw them closer together? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

Photo: ABC

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”
