GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco To Cameron, “Tell Your Mom I Love Her … And Tell Her I’ll Be Back”

Courtesy/ABC

In a stunning turn, which featured great performances by Roger Howarth (Franco) and William Lipton (Cameron), Franco demands to know what’s going on when he walks in on a frightening moment ..  his stepson Cameron has been drugged, and is being held captive by Dr. Cabot (Time Winters) and Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) … and he realizes after Cameron speaks the words “flash drive” and “Drew”, that the evil duo wants to use Cameron as the vehicle to implant Drew’s memories!

As Dr. Cabot goes on and on to Shiloh that his experiment should only be performed on an adult, not a child, Shiloh doesn’t give a rat’s ass insisting that Cabot start the procedure on Cameron immediately.  Throughout, Shiloh has a gun drawn on Franco and will use it on anyone else in the warehouse who does not go along with his twisted plot.

Meanwhile, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Drew (Billy Miller) are trying to locate Shiloh and Dr. Cabot realizing that he could be trying to implant Drew’s memories into an unsuspecting or unwillingly victim.  With the help of Lucy (Lynn Herring), who has been dealing in real estate, they all come to the conclusion of where the men could be hiding out!

At General Hospital, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is becoming frantic, because she had not heard from Cameron and she can’t reach Franco by his cell, either.  But now back at the warehouse, Franco’s cell has been confiscated by Shiloh.  Sam (Kelly Monaco) is blaming herself for what has happened, and Liz asks Jason (Steve Burton) for help and Jason puts Spinelli on the case.

Back at the warehouse, Franco tells Shiloh to use him instead for the mind-mapping, and to free Cameron.  Franco goes on to say that he has done some apprehensible things in his life, and he had a tortured childhood, and would like to forget about all of that, and convinces Shiloh and Dr, Cabot that he is their best chance at success.   But Franco also had a brain tumor which was removed and had prior brain damage, so could this not work at all?

After his plea, Shiloh finally agrees and unties Cameron and has Franco prepped and strapped to the chair.  However, in the exchange, Cameron is now chained to the fence near the door crying to not let this happen to his stepdad.

In a emotional moment, Franco tells Cameron how much he has enjoyed getting to know him and what a great kid he is.  He then tells Cameron to calm down, because he has something very important to tell him.  Franco says, “Tell your mother I love her, and tell her that I’ll be back.” Next thing you know, Franco is injected to start the mind-mapping procedure.

Now the questions become: Will anyone get to Franco in time before the procedure is completed?  And if so, who might save the day?  Curtis and Drew, Elizabeth, or Cameron, or even someone else?  Will Franco become full-tilt Drew with the former Navy SEAL’s memories?

I haven’t watched in a few weeks. DUMBEST storyline (memory mapping). Disgusted with the blatant nepotism and direction of this show.

Amen!

Rather than Frodd Redemption-Part 666 they really should have Drew show up and accept his own memories. Since we know Drew’s on his way out the door soon, he might as well be off to settle whatever business he left behind when he was involuntarily disappeared from his own life, by Faison/Helena/whomever (probably with Shiloh’s help)

Drew’s story botched from the beginning. Now TPTB are giving us a double dose of “botch” as they rush the “story” (so-called!) as Billy Miller is out the door. So very bad!

I agree with you! What a terrible story! It maybe good for Roger, to play another character, but not so much for us fans!! He

Franco has been redeemed for years. Anyone who has to complain about redemption stories isn’t paying attention. Franco has been consistently remorseful and he did the therapy & behavior modification to become better. He does good because he loves his family and wants to do good.

The whole Shiloh story was a giant time sucking annoyance until they dropped Cameron & Franco into it to bring intense emotion and great acting to a loopy plot. Elizabeth is shining now too. And finally DREW gets to have a part in a story he should have been part of a year ago before he got saddled playing a supporting role to a poorly cast teen.

What’s up with Curtis and Robert? They seemed pretty invested in Franco not remembering Drew’s past. Is the WSB involved? What does Robert know?

It was nice to see Elizabeth call an actual law enforcement officer, not the mob. Finally, a member of the PCPD got to do something right without being overshadowed by a over the hill hitman.

Jake & Aiden will be distraught if they believe their full time dad is gone. I hope Jason & Sam witness the effects of their ineptitude & careless behavior on these children.

I will be eagerly watching Elizabeth fight for her man and watching Franco & Elizabeth fall in love again. I hope this leads to Franco adopting Cameron like Lee adopted Scotty, I want to see Ava comforting Scotty for a change as he faces the possibility of losing his quirky, delightful son. I want Liesl to get her license to practice back so she can reverse the memory transfer. If anyone can, it’s her.

These are the characters GH should focus on—the legacy families and the core of the hospital itself.

I totally agree with everything YOU just stated. Jasamm are to old. Sam has consistently made a fool out of herself with this hold Shiloh thing. Jason is NO longer capable of thinking on his feet.

I LOVED that Liz refused Jason’s offer to go with her and called the police instead. I’m GLAD GH didn’t write Jason saving the day.

I’m so ready for the greatest love story ever told to continue to unfold with Franco/Liz/their boys. If written right Franco will be the one to keep Cameron’s head on straight.

Liz has always wanted a complete family(child hood issues) and to feel safe. She has that with Franco. I hope she feels confident enough in loving/choosing Franco that she no longer cares how others feel about HIM. Especially Jasam.

My wish is GH will allow Liz to express how Franco makes her feel as a woman.

P. S.the only one’s not accepting Franco’s redemption are Jasam/Liason fans. Imo they are jealous because Franco/Liz are so AWESOME together. I excluded those that think a hitman/mob enforcer should be glorified.

Sure, Liz should have a good healthy friendly relationship with Jason because of history/Jake. For me,it would be quite amuzing for Jason to fear Franco is a better father than he is while Sam fears Jason is spending to much time with Liz.

While I can’t say I love suspending reality on such storylines, I was super impressed with William Lipton’s ugly crying. He really let go and let her rip! It was believable; not these fake boo-hoo sobs that aren’t near realistic.

The beginning of the scene where Franco shows up and some of the dialog were just awful, but once they got into it, there was some fine acting from Roger Howarth and William Lipton. THe other two in the scene were just dialing it in.

I cannot wait for the day that they start the “Who Killed Shiloh?” storyline (and did the world a favor). Obviously, Colby is bringing it (most days, but not in these scenes – sorry), or I wouldn’t dislike SHiloh so much. But oh my goodness! How much more of his dastardly deeds are we to endure before Shiloh gets his comeuppance?

I believe Franco will still have his memories and Drews

Could they have had Liz act more like a little idiot today when Franco woke up? Going on and on about him being Franco and not Drew Cain,yada, yada, yada, when she knows full well why he believes otherwise. I am surprised she didn’t jump in bed with him and try to refresh his memories another way.Oh God, give me a break!

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
