GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

Courtesy/ABC

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

When I saw Franco kissing Kim all I could think was “Billy Miller should be doing this!” GH is a mess right now. Sad.

As ridiculous as this mind mapping is, I’m fine with it if it creates a good story. It’s a shame that BM is leaving as it seems that Drew would need to be a major part of this story. It appears that this is what will keep Kim & Julian in town as I haven’t seen anything about the 2 actors leaving the show.

Billy is leaving because he has got shafted does anybody remember the big hoopla when he came??? Not one actor except for Kelly has supported him no let’s support the mindless robot SB who takes total advantage if his fans

TVJeff

I totally agree with you. Even when SB returned they could’ve created a great story but didn’t. Much of this occurred when I boycotted GH due to GF’s firing!

This show is in the gutter. I haven’t watched in weeks. It’s horrendous-the writing & storylines.

DMR-
if you haven’t watch GH in weeks– how would you know if it’s ”?horrendous”
naww you aren’t going on other peoples opinions and not your own, are yah?

Do you know if Kim is actually leaving GH or is it just a dupe ?

nancy dillingham

Hi su000, I’d say just a dupe, wouldn’t you?

Has it ever occurred to anyone that the highly lauded Roger Howarth is just a horrible actor? Honestly, I don’t get the big deal about him.

Very well could be the worst storyline in the program’s 56 year history. I sit in front of my 65″ TV, my face paralyzingly cringing. Astonishingly putrid.

I’d say Fluke, Denise Demuccio and Man Landers were worse – and that’s only recent examples. Oh, even worse, Anna potentially having a child with Faison.

First, lets face it, neither Stafford or Miller ever fit into GH. Point fingers which ever direction you choose. Secondly, Valenti loves Howarth, Easton and Ramsey Its his show and this is what we get. I will stay until the bitter end! At least we get to see Robert Scorpio from time to time.

Yes, I stay because of Tristan and Genie!

I misread this headline as “and Believing He Is Drew Kisses Him.” Now THAT would have been interesting (and unexpected)!

(Hey wait a minute, it’s no more far fetched than what they’re actually trying to sell us!)

If the rumored resurrection of One Life to Live comes to pass, can we hope that Roger Howarth will go back to playing Todd (the only soap role I’ve really liked him in) and TPTB will finally admit that this whole Frodd thing doesn’t work? OK, OK, I know: that OLTL resurrection isn’t REALLY happening. (Next you’ll tell me mind-mapping isn’t real either.)

TVJeff

OLTL is not coming back. Ever. Nor AMC. Not trying to be negative. Just realistic.

Oh dear God. It’s not enough that Miller had to sit back and let Burton take over a role he worked hard on to make his own, now he has to sit back and watch Howarth take over his replacement role. What does Frank Valentine have against Billy? As Franco had memories wash over him and as he reached out and kissed Kim, there’s hapless Miller as Drew just standing there with his hands in his pockets with absolutely nothing to do. We waited for a long time for Drew to finally submerge his past with his present and they took that away from us, and from Miller. I get that Lizzy and Franco needed conflict for their romance to be interesting but why does that conflict have to be predicated upon Miller being deprived once again of his being able to play his heart out as Drew?
GH needs to pay fidelity to character driven stories and stop with these cheap tricks. This is why GH’s ratings are suffering.

Amen, Sally!

I am so disappointed FOR Billy Miller!!! I have been waiting patiently for him to get a story he deserves ever since Steve Burton came back! Why couldn’t we see Billy bring Drew’s history to fruition!?!? Bad move GH; BAD MOVE!!!!!

So crazy! If it weren’t for Genie Francis’ and Tristan Rogers’ presence on GH, I would say goodbye to the mess TPTB have made of GH. So hard to watch they cray cray!

Has anyone stopped to think of what could have happened, had they succeeded in transferring Drew’s memories to Cameron? He would have believed he was in love with Kim, yuk! Anything would have been disastrous.

Roger Howarth is brilliant and always riveting to watch.

No he is not brilliant and riveting to watch–not for me anyway.

I’m with you, Michael. Roger Howarth is the best actor on the show right now.

The twist of Drew 1.0 knowing he was a Quartermaine all along was a shocker, but made sense. We might get some interesting scenes now with Roger & Leslie.

With Billy leaving this week, I’m not sure how this story eventually wraps up without a recast or Burton taking a dual role.

Probably stretching out until November sweeps.

I am wondering if the moving plans will change now for Kim and Julian.As much as Kim will be drawn to Drew, she will not want to step on Liz’s toes, so to speak.Iam sure Liz’s plan will be for Drew to fall in love with her, as did Franco, but he is in love with Kim, so who knows what will happen.

Amy

I’m super excited to see how the Drew-Franco and Kim relationship develops. The chemistry between Roger Howarth and Tamara Braun was instantaneous and absolutely sizzling. I’ve been waiting for a coupling as electric as Tamara’s CarLo days and I think we are finally going to get one with Drew-Franco/Kim. Now, what to call this pairing? KimCo?

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
