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.

So, what do you think of the story turn thus far that has Franco now with Drew’s memories and with no trace of Franco? Share your thoughts on the twist via the comment section below!

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

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!

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 ?

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.

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.)

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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?

Violet Lemm

Agreed!

I must say that I am one of the few who had hopes for this SL, but I may have been wrong. I do not like Franco/Drew and Kim with their romantic remembrances igniting their new involvement. Kim being a doctor and Liz’s friend should have more sense. That being said, I really can’t imagine this turning out to everyone’s satisfaction.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
